In the programme this week - the Silver Ferns head coach Ruth Aitken has just announced she's retiring --we talk to her about that decision and the new role she'll step into at the end of October. The All Blacks have never beaten South Africa in Port Elizabeth and will try to change that on Sunday morning with a team missing many choice players --we'll hear from the acting captain and the new fullback. The first appointment's been made to the organising committe for cricket's 2015 World Cup -- we talk to New zealand cricket's new chairman about that and the tournament being jointly hosted with Australia. The Warriors are three games from the end of the National Rugby league's regular season and are still a chance of a top four finish and a home start to the playoffs -- one of the team's veterans assesses their prospects. The basketball season's looming and the New Zealand Breakers have a new main sponsor and a new-look roster, we'll hear from two of the club's senior players and from ultra marathon runner Lisa Tamati who talks about her latest epic.
