Get the best of New Zealand sport media and content up in your grill every Friday morning. 
Welcome to the very first New Zealand Sport Review newsletter, and thanks for subscribing. Did I mention you're looking strong / amazing / very well this morning? 

The elevator pitch for this newsletter is that you get the best New Zealand sports writing and content in your email inbox every Friday morning at 8am, just in time for the weekend. Ideally, you'll feel entertained and more intelligent after reading it. Righto. 

This weekend, if it's cricket you want, the White Ferns continue their series against the West Indies at Bay Oval at the Mount tonight at 7pm, while the pink ball warm-up at Seddon Park is being live streamed on NZC's site. If it's rugby you want, get ready for at least one family member to interrupt your viewing by saying 'oh, has rugby started already?'. It's only just autumn. You've been warned.  

Thanks for reading - Richard

But can we shrug off the white-ball defeat and win the pink ball Test? Mark Geenty says yes, Ben Strang says no. I'm with Mark on this. [Stuff.co.nz]
