SportsPro senior reporter Steve Impey returns from a stint in Japan to update editor at large Eoin Connolly and senior writer Sam Carp on the goings-on at the Rugby World Cup (15.44). There's also time to discuss the implications of Eliud Kipchoge's two-hour marathon breakthrough and the NBA's communications breakdown in China. 

Then IBB Polonia chief executive Bartek Łuszcz and consultant Alex Inglot - moonlighting from his role as an ATP Tour board member - reveal how England's first entrants in Europe's Volleyball Champions League are rewriting the rulebook for smaller sports clubs (31.53). From signing superstar players to streaming matches in Poland and maximising the potential of their events, they are using every available asset to break out of their environment and take their sport with them in the UK.
