Buying a D5100 - Best setup to buy


I have decided to buy the Nikon d5100, but first I need to work out the best setup to buy.

+ 18-55 = £428

+ 18-105 = £557

+ 18-55 and 55-200 = £557

As a lot of my subjects will be sports I would like some zoom, and therefore not really considering the 18-105mm.

My main question is this.

Do I get the d5100 + 18-55mm kit lens and add the Sigma 70-300mm f.45.6 macro DG Lens for £99, therefore giving me 100mm more range for £30 less.

I have read some good reviews but also conflicting reviews about the auto focus. Will this lens Auto focus on the d5100? I have tried to find out with much luck.

Your help thoughts would be appreicated.
