Extra Time for 21 February 2014

From Extra Time, 5:30 pm on 21 February 2014

In Extra Time this week, the New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum discusses his historic triple century. We talk to the man who had the best view in the house when McCullum brought up his milestone, teamate and test debutant Jimmy Neesham. The former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe also tell us of the weight lifted from his shoulders due to McCullum's achievement. We preview the Super 15 rugby season then head to the Sochi Winter Olympics to talk to freestyle skier Jossi Wells, who's become New Zealand's most successful winter Olympian in more than 20 years. We hear about New Zealand's successful joint bid with Australia to host the 2017 rugby league world cup. Can Hamish Bond upstage Mahe Drysdale in a battle of the Olympic rowing champions at the national champs on Lake Karapiro this weekend? And the gloves worn by Muhammad Ali when he beat Sonny Liston to win his first heavyweight crown are to go under the hammer just days before the fight's 50th anniversary, we head to New York to find out where they've been since 1964 and just how much they're worth.
