Wales Women Call Up 20 New Players For Autumn Series

Wales Women have named 20 uncapped players in their enlarged squad of 44 players for their autumn series. Their plan is to get the new players up to the required level for international rugby before the Women’s World Cup in 2021. Head coach Rowland Phillips's team meet South Africa, Hong Kong and Canada on consecutive weekends in November. The games against the Springboks and the Canucks will take place on the morning of the men's matches at the Principality Stadium, making it a full day of rugby for supporters in Cardiff.

Magical Makin Sees Off World No 1 in Huge Upset

Joel Makin produced the best performance of his career to send World No 1 Mohamed Elshorbagy crashing out of the St George's Classic in Surrey. The Haverfordwest ace - who has reached  career high 33 in the world rankings - sent Egypt's defending champion crashing out in straight sets in the $106,000 Men's Channel VAS tournament in Surrey.

Graham Potter Tells Swans They Will Sink If They Cannot Cope With Vibrant Villa Park

Graham Potter has warned his Swansea City players they need to be ready for an emotion-charged atmosphere at Villa Park on Saturday - or else they will be in “big trouble.” For all the pats on the back given to Potter for returning the Swans to their traditional eye-pleasing style in recent weeks, the facts of life are that they have won just one Championship match in their last six. At Villa, they face a 42,000 sell-out crowd – double the capacity at the Liberty Stadium – against a club desperate to create a frenzy for their new manager Dean Smith, his new assistant John Terry, and to honour the memory of their former chairman Doug Ellis who died last week.

It's 21 Months Since The Dragons Won Back-To-Back Games . . . Not Good Enough, Says Warren Gatland

The Dragons have been told they need to improve their success rate if they are to get more players into the Wales squad. The blunt message comes from Warren Gatland as the region face a pivotal test of their strength or otherwise with a Friday night home clash against Northampton in the European Challenge Cup. Having thrashed Timisoara Saracens 54-17 in their opening match, and enjoyed a win rate of 50 per cent from their last six matches, the Dragons were hopeful of increased numbers in Gatland’s squad for the autumn internationals.

Davies Clinches Welsh Forest Rally Title On A Tie-Break

Subaru driver Dylan Davies has been confirmed as the 2018 Pirelli MSA Welsh Forest Rally Champion. A thrilling end to one of the most closely fought seasons the series has ever witnessed was thwarted when the final round, the Winner Garage SKODA Wyedean Stages Rally on 10 November, was cancelled. With Davies and his Caernarfon co-driver Llion Williams, who have enjoyed a superb season in their Impreza B13, finishing on equal points with former champion and Ford Fiesta R5 pilot Matt Edwards (Llysfaen) and co-driver Darren Garrod (Pwllheli), the series organisers had to review the tie-break rules to determine who had won the title – with Davies winning it based on the Llanon driver’s better class results.
