Wales captain Sam Warburton says playing a three-Test series against the All Blacks in New Zealand, live on Sky Sports, is an amazing opportunity. Warburton, providing he recovers in time from a shoulder injury, will return to the scene of arguably his most painful rugby experience next Saturday.When the Wales skipper last played at Eden Park in Auckland - a 2011 World Cup semi-final against France - he was sent off midway through the first-half as Les Bleus went on to triumph 9-8. Since then, though, Warburton has led the British and Irish Lions on tour to Australia, while Wales have won two more Six Nations titles and reached a World Cup quarter-final, and he is relishing world rugbys greatest challenge.With his country without a victory over New Zealand away from home in seven attempts, Warburton said: I am never, ever going to go into a game not believing we are going to win it. I cant wait for it.Its an amazing opportunity for us, three games. You have to have a really positive mindset to go out there, which is half the battle in professional sport. Warburton suffered a miserable sending off the last time he played in Auckland We obviously know that New Zealand are massive favourites. They have been the worlds best team for a long time now, and they will be the best team we have played against probably in the last three or four years.The feeling of victory, then, is what motivates you because it would make it that much greater an achievement. So its really motivating to go out there and try to get a win against the best side in the world. Its an amazing rugby country. The people are fantastic, and they are all pretty fond of Welsh rugby, which is really nice to hear. They all seem to enjoy the brand of rugby that we try to play, so probably anywhere other than Wales that I play rugby, New Zealand has been my favourite place.The All Blacks play their first Test match next weekend since claiming a second successive World Cup triumph last autumn, and they go into battle without the likes of retired record-breaking captain Richie McCaw, plus France-based trio Dan Carter, Maa Nonu and Conrad Smith. Warren Gatland was reletaively satisfied despite their 27-13 defeat by England But Warburton added: They might lose experience, but they will never lose talent. I have been watching the guys in Super Rugby, and their teams have been doing extremely well, playing some great rugby.They will have a plan in place and guys coming in, and they will be extremely strong, as ever. Dont get me wrong, the experienced players will be missed, but the ones they have coming through is scary, their strength in depth.

TORONTO -- Three games. One score.The KLM line versus Mario and Wayne.The greatest hockey ever played.Russia and Canada get set to add another chapter to their rich rivalry Saturday night in the semifinals of the World Cup of Hockey (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2), some 29 years after that tournament -- then still called the Canada Cup -- produced a final series that still reverberates.It was about pure skill. All three games, Igor Larionov, the Hall of Fame center of the KLM line, told ESPN.com Friday. We ended up losing, but the biggest winner was the game of hockey and the fans who were watching it. Thats what I want to see tomorrow.Wouldnt that be something? Team North Americas 23-and-under kids showed us the future of the game this past week but also brought us back in time this with their breathtaking style. Although Larionov realizes thats not typically how the game is played today, he hopes that the stars on both Canadas and Russias rosters will be let loose on Saturday -- just like they were in 1987, when all three games were decided by a 6-5 score. Canada won Game 3 when?Wayne Gretzky famously set up Mario Lemieux?late in the third period for the winner.Its a great highlight. I think when you look at that play, I think it stands out in everyones mind, current Team Canada star?Sidney Crosby, a fervent student of the games history, said Friday.It was almost 30 years ago, but Id love to see the kind of hockey where we let the players play, let the players entertain, said Larionov. Thats what I remember from that series in 87, just the magnitude and skill level.The reality is that the winning goal, a 3-on-1 break with Gretzky, Lemieux and Larry Murphy bearing down, would be considered a monumental misttake in todays game.dddddddddddd You rarely see those types of defensive breakdowns anymore, especially with the game on the line.The idea that Russia and Canada will spend the game exchanging chances Saturday night? Well, its wishful thinking.This is what I would tell you, began Team Canada coach Mike Babcock on Friday when asked about the idea of such a back-and-forth. I dont like to feed my family on hope, I like to feed my family on know. I dont like surprises, not at Christmas, not on my birthday. I want it under control.And that quote might as well have come from any of the other 29 NHL coaches.Still, its Canada versus Russia with a lot at stake, and even in todays game, thats something.Its a rivalry thats been around for a long time. I think means an intense, emotional game, said Crosby. Two proud nations when it comes to hockey.One could argue, though, that Team USA long ago replaced Russia as Canadas No. 1 hockey rival -- right around the time of the 1996 World Cup, in fact.The last best-on-best encounter between Russia and Canada came at the Vancouver Olympics, when Crosbys Canadian crew demolished?Alex Ovechkins Russian side 7-3 in the quarterfinals. They havent played since in a best-on-best tournament. Its a rivalry in need of a kick-start.Rivalries are built on great games, said Team Canada center Ryan Getzlaf on Friday. So were hopeful for one tomorrow.Just dont ask Getzlaf about the 87 Canada Cup.Man, I was two, he said.Fair enough.Its been almost 30 years. The time is here for another classic. Lets hope were fortunate enough to see it Saturday night. ' ' '
