The judge at Bristol County Superior Court, Susan Garsh, told the jury they could watch the game but must take precautions to avoid being exposed to information about Hernandez. The Patriots take on the Seattle Seahawks in the showpiece event on Sunday.

Hernandez is charged over the shooting death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd in 2013. The trial began on Thursday with opening statements.

Twenty-five-year-old Hernandez, who caught quarterback Tom Brady's last Super Bowl touchdown pass in the Patriots' 2012 loss to the New York Giants, had a $40 million contract with the New England team when he was arrested.

The former world number one had a terrible day at the office during the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, finishing 11 over par and missing the cut.

Woods had only failed to qualify for the final 36 holes on 12 occasions until today in 19 years as a pro golfer and it was only the second time that he failed to break 80.

Woods' previous worst effort came at the 2002 Open Championship at Muirfield when, in horrendous conditions, he shot 81 in the third round but he went one worse than that in Arizona.

The 39-year-old was playing in playing in only his second event since missing the cut at the PGA Championship in August last year.

"He is a great player, a very important player," Pellegrini explained.

"He has his character, it is not an easy character, but I hope for him that (with) this punishment - and I am not trying to take advantage for the game tomorrow - it will be a good thing for him to change in the future because he doesn't need to do it in that way because he is a very good player, a top player."

Hull boss Steve Bruce says the club are close to agreeing a loan deal for a Premier League player - reported to be Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

Bruce has made no secret of the fact he wants to recruit some fresh faces to counter the threat of relegation with particular emphasis on bolstering a forward line hampered by injury and inconsistency.

Bruce didn't name Lennon but admits Saturday's game at the KC Stadium may come too early for any potential new signing.

"It's always nice top bring one or two in if you possibly can to give everyone a lift in the squad and that's what we've been working on really hard in the last couple of days," said Bruce. "Let's hope we can get them over the line."

"I wouldn't have thought it would be done by Saturday if I'm honest. We are working in particular on a loan deal but I wouldn't think it's going to get done before 12 o'clock. I would like to say it would be but I really can't see it."

Lennon has struggled for game time under new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
