Sponsor by a Relative

I have a hard time finding sponsorship (457) so I am thinking of sponsorship by a relative. My issue is that I don't have a relative in Australia. My wife has an Aunt so maybe that will count. I work as an Estimator and I have a Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Does anybody know about sponsorship by relative?

I know some visas allow for sponsorship by a relative (I think the 175/176), but I don't think the 457 does, I couldn't find it anywhere:
Temporary Business (Long Stay) - Standard Business Sponsorship (Subclass 457)

For this visa you will need to be approved as an eligible sponsor. You will also need:
an eligible nominated occupation
an eligible nominated employee.

Could you point me to where you saw this?
