1 DX Mk II vs 7D Mk II

I do sports photography, tennis, hockey, rugby etc and generally use my 7D II with a 70-200 2.8 ii or 100-400 4.5 5.6 ii.

Last night I was shooting rugby and at 17:15 is was quite dark and I reduced my shutter speed to 1/400 at f2.8 and ISO 5 000 at 135mm on the 70-200.

The resultant noise was quite excessive and the image may not be publishable in our local newspapers for which I freelance.

Would the low light ability of the 1DX ii allow me to shoot acceptable images at say between 4 000 and 6 000 ISO which would be newspaper acceptable?
