Wilkinson Will Hit 150 Mark As She Leads New Look Wales

Leah Wilkinson will win her 150th cap when she leads the Welsh Women’s team into the Hockey Open Series in Lithuania this week. The Holcombe midfielder is in her 14th year in the Welsh team, having made her debut in Ireland in 2004, and has played at three Commonwealth Games, leading Wales at the Gold Coast earlier this year.

Wilson Bags Welsh Open Stroke Play Title

James Wilson won the Welsh Open Stroke Play at Pyle and Kenfig, beating England's Tom Sloman in a sudden death play-off. The pair finished locked together on level par at the end of the 72 holes, before Scotland's Stirling University graduate Wilson won the first hole in the play off with a birdie. Will Poole of Mendip Spring was third, one stroke off the leading pair.

How's The WRU's "Project" Going? And Just What Needs To Be "Reset"

Having recently looked at the Principality Premiership, Geraint Powell turns his attention to the survivors of the great 2003 Welsh rugby shake-up, the regions. These like to consider themselves as independent business operations. How’s trade? "Project Reset". Two words that send a shudder down the spines of those who want to forever remain with the non-aligned April 2003 fudge without the requisite never ending evolution/modernisation. This is compounded by ill-advised fixed term “cliff edge” agreements between the WRU and the regions, an excuse to stand still for periods of five to six years.

Dreadnoughts Inflict First And Final Defeat Of The Season On South Wales Warriors

An undefeated regular season for the South Wales Warriors ended in defeat at the first play-off hurdle against the Portsmouth Destroyers who were always in control of this semi-final clash. The Dreadnoughts tasted defeat at this same stage last year and showed their intent at the outset, surprising the Warriors with an explosive start as Benny Debrah sprinted some 60 yards to score on just the visitor’s third play from scrimmage at Llanharan Rugby Club’s Dairy Field. The Warriors, who had conceded only 12 points all season, kept the deficit to six by blocking Les Adofu’s attempted conversion. 

Harry Arter: If We Can't Beat Newcastle, We'll Beat Manchester United And Chelsea Instead

Harry Arter insists Cardiff City will waste little time worrying that an inability to beat the likes of Newcastle United at home means relegation is a certainty. The new Bluebirds recruit has a wider perspective on what may happen during the club’s first season back in the Premier League and urges the doubters to look at the experience he went through at Bournemouth. The midfielder, a deadline day loan mover, has plenty of experience in defying the odds and the doomsayers such as BBC radio pundit Chris Sutton who has predicted Neil Warnock’s side could threaten Derby County’s record low total of 11 points for a Premier League season.

Nigel Davies Warns Of Welsh Premiership Meltdown As Old Clubs Sidelined By New WRU Structure

The big kick-off to the new rugby season is not far away, but there is still confusion as to where parts of the Welsh jig-saw fit into place. The new Celtic Cup will operate over the opening two months of the season, but to what effect? Meanwhile, in the soon to be downgraded Principality Premiership, some of the biggest names in rugby will be fighting for their very survival as David Williams discovers. If you ask the four Welsh regions what they are going to call their new teams that will be playing in the Celtic Cup this season you will get differing answers. For some they will be Under 23 sides, others are calling them A teams. Seven successive weekends of ‘development’ rugby are in store for the brightest young prospects in the Welsh game as they dip their toe into the professional sport.
