DENVER -- Canadas womens rugby team beat England for just the second time in 20 years Saturday to claim its first IRB Nations Cup title with a 27-13 victory. . Up 14-8 at halftime, Canada began to build possession that resulted in a pair of penalty kicks by Magali Harvey to extend the lead to 20-8. England then looked to apply its power game and fly half Ceri Large drove a penalty kick deep into the Canadian corner. The resulting England drive resulted in a Georgina Roberts try to bring England within seven points. Off another attempted England corner kick, Canada collected possession and drove towards half. The ball found Bianca Farella on the near wing and she rounded her English opposite number and out ran the remaining cover to score under the posts for the clinching points. . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . SINGAPORE -- Formula One teams have welcomed the commercial takeover of the sport by American company Liberty Media and the prospects of improving the product on and off the track, while cautioning that such changes wont come any time soon.This weekends Singapore Grand Prix is the first since Liberty struck an agreement for an $8 billion staged takeover of the sport, with controlling shareholder CVC Capital selling out and minority shareholders to follow.The new Liberty-installed chairman of Formula One is Chase Carey, an American who formerly ran 21st Century Fox. Accompanied by long-term F1 commercial chief Bernie Ecclestone -- who will stay on for the short term under the new owners -- Carey visited the race paddock at Marina Bay on the weekend and had an opportunity to meet team bosses.Red Bull team principal Christian Horner welcomed a return to hands-on ownership and said Libertys media expertise should boost F1s presence in new media, an area where it is viewed as being slow to capitalize.Rather than having a venture capitalist or a financial institution buying into the sport, its far better that a company like Liberty has bought in and hopefully that will address some of the areas we have been weak in previously, Horner said. Hopefully for the US market it could be a great thing and some of the other platforms like the digital and social platforms could also be very interesting.Liberty does have the capacity to make some changes in the near term -- such as to the season calendar, promotion and media coverage -- but the fundamental changes to the sport that many are urging will need more patient negotiation. Changes to the program of race weekends, rules governing car design and fairer distribution of revenue to teams are governed by the secretive Concorde Agreement -- between the owners, the teams and the FIA, the sports governing body. The latest iteration of that agreement runs through the end of 2020 so big changes to the sport are some way off.Its not so much whats going to happen in 2017 or 18, its what does the future bbeyond 2020 hold in store, Horner said. ts great theyve come to agreement with Bernie for him to be around for a few years to come, because that intervening period is going to be crucial. He (Carey) is going to have to get himself up to speed with the business and then decide what actions they want to take for the future.Maurizio Arrivabene, the team principal of the sports perennial power Ferrari, said Liberty clearly sees potential to grow the sport, given the amount of money invested, but also said it will take time for them to develop and enact a strategy.Normally what you do when you buy something, you are listening, learning, sharing and acting, Arrivabene said. All these phases are going to happen, and they request good time to make sure that the sport is growing.Cyril Abiteboul, team principal of Renault, hopes the new owners can forge agreement on a better balance between no-holds-barred technological development on the one hand, and close and entertaining racing on the other.A number of partners want to showcase technology, which sometimes goes against the interests of entertainment and the show, Abiteboul said. So it will be interesting to see, with the arrival of a pure player on entertainment and show, how it can impact the product.Guenther Steiner, operational chief of the U.S.-owned Haas team, believes the arrival of a U.S. company should not only boost the sports presence in that key market, but might bring about some blue-sky thinking.There is big potential in the States, so we being an American team, we hope they bring that to fruition, Steiner said. We are more than happy to help them to do anything they need to do in the United States.We are waiting for their plan because maybe they have got some ideas we havent thought of. We are quite stubborn in this business, we just keep on asking for the same. Maybe theyve got some great ideas as we can support them and help them along.
