The Australian Women’s Sevens will start their title defence as World Champions against South Africa, China and Ireland at Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow this June. The pools for the women’s fixture of Rugby World Cup Sevens was held in the host city overnight, with the defending champions Australia being drawn as top seed in Pool B.

The Australian women made history in Dubai in 2009 when they defeated New Zealand 15-10 in nail-biting fashion to claim the first-ever women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens title.

India cruised their way to victory over China to all but ensure they progress to round three of the men’s Hero Hockey World League 2013. Indeed, only a loss in their final game against Bangladesh and a miracle on the goal difference front could see them overhauled by two teams.

An Asia-Pacific select side rallied from behind with a string of powerful singles performances on Sunday to beat Team China 14 1/2 - 9 1/2 in the Ryder Cup-style Dongfeng Nissan Cup at the CTS Tycoon Club in Shenzhen, China.

Trailing 7-5 after the fourball and foursome rounds, the Asia-Pacific team won nine and halved one of the 12 singles matches to retain the trophy they claimed at the inaugural OneAsia event last year.

She romped to a seven stroke victory with a tournament record 17 under par in the 54-hole event, going one stroke better than world no.1 Yani Tseng the previous year.

Home favourite Liang Wenchong drained a 12 foot birdie putt on the fifth hole of a sudden-death playoff to pip liang_trophyKorean Y.E. Yang at OneAsia's U.S. $1 million Nanshan China Masters on Sunday.

Yang fired a two-under-par fourth-round 69 to overnight leader Liang's 73 to leave both at eight under for the tournament, and they then matched each other shot-for-shot as they played the 18th five times in a bid to settle the match.

Neither player has won on any tour since claiming two OneAsia titles apiece in 2010, and for a while it looked as if Australian Aaron Townsend (72) might pip them both in a topsy-turvy final round.
