  Comment: The tactic Japan used at the World Cup that showed how to unlock Rush Defence It wasn’t just South Africa that has become an amazing defensive side in recent years.

Peter Siddle© AAP Peter Siddle Victoria have kept alive their slim one-day cup hopes with a tense six-run win over NSW at the MCG.

Moises Henriques was dismissed in the second last over on Sunday night for 98, effectively ending the Blues' hopes in a match they had dominated for long periods.

NSW finished on 259 after 49.5 overs in pursuit of Victoria's 265 off 49.2 overs.

The Blues seemed comfortably on track for just the second win of the domestic one-day season at 2-155.

Opener Daniel Hughes continued his good form with 83 from 85 balls before he was trapped lbw to Matt Short (2-21).

But a regular loss of wickets left NSW at 6-198 and needing a run a ball.

Willie Mason calls for sacking of Samoa coach Matt Parish as Sonny Bill Williams weights up international defection

  Willie Mason calls for sacking of Samoa coach Matt Parish as Sonny Bill Williams weights up international defection Former Canterbury Bulldogs and Australian front-rower Willie Mason has called on Samoa to sack coach Matt Parish in order to entice stars such as Sonny Bill Williams to play for them. With SBW's return to the 13-man game confirmed by Super League side Toronto Wolfpack last week, there has been speculation that the dual-code superstar will defect from New Zealand to play for Samoa. Both Mason and former Australian centre Willie Tonga played with Williams throughout his time at the Bulldogs and suggests there is a real possibility that he will pull on the blue jersey in time for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

Opener Jack Edwards' half-century and Sean Abbott's five wickets see NSW Blues claim their first win of the JLT Cup at the fourth attempt.

Fast bowler Daniel Sams crashed an enormous six that fell close to the second deck at the MCG, before being spectacularly caught next ball by a leaping Will Sutherland.

Needing 18 off the final two overs, Henriques was trapped lbw by Sutherland ending a 111-ball innings.

Test fast bowler Peter Siddle collected the best figures for the Bushrangers with 3-40.

Victoria's innings was built around a career-best 88 from middle-order batsman Short.

Short scored at just over a run a ball only to throw away his innings attempting to up the run rate.

Seventeen-year-old rookie Jake Fraser-McGurk was next best with 54 for his second half-century in as many outings for the Vics.

Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch made just 11, while dropped Test opener Marcus Harris looked in fine touch for his 44.

Sams starred for a Blues attack shorn of their Test stars, with the medium-pacer claiming 5-46.

Victoria will need a double bonus-point win on Tuesday over South Australia to have any chance of reaching the final later this month.
