Extra Time for 16 September 2011

From Extra Time, 5:00 pm on 16 September 2011

This week the All Blacks' team's doctor is in keep calm and carry on mode about the rash of injuries before the Rugby World Cup match against Japan. We'll also hear from Japan's coach and a member of the Samoan team responsible for a massive upset at the 1991 World Cup. New Zealand Hockey is to host the most important tournament held here so far - we talk to the Blacks Sticks' men's coach about the Champions Trophy and to one of the only remaining New Zealand Olympians from the 1948 London games. The Australian influence on New Zealand cricket continues to grow with the appointment of the new national selection manager; one of the Warriors contemplates the prospect of another early exit from the NRL playoffs and New Zealand netball's new goal shoot talks about her belated debut.
