David Brooks has insisted he used England as “stepping stone” to play for Wales, his first choice from the outset. The Sheffield United youngster is set to earn his third full Welsh cap on Tuesday when Ryan Giggs’ side play a friendly against Mexico in California. Brooks was England’s face of the future as they won the Toulon Tournament last summer, but now the Blades ace is anxious to convince that his switch of allegiance was always on the cards.
Ellis Jenkins will co-captain Wales on tour this summer, along with Cory Hill. So how does that work, exactly? The Cardiff Blues flanker tells Dai Sport how he intends to share the role as well as the referee charm lessons he has learned from Sam Warburton. How long did you celebrate for after the Cardiff Blues’ European Challenge Cup win in Bilbao? We had a big couple of days celebrating and then a few days off to relax and then re-focus. We came back into the Welsh camp last week to do some strength and conditioning work and then began the ruby stuff, albeit without the Scarlets boys, on Tuesday.
Gareth Bale’s situation at Real Madrid is “complicated” according to manager Zinedine Zidane. The inspiration and saviour for Wales on so many occasions, Bale proved match-winner for his club with a gravity-defying, momentous, awe-inspiring overhead kick that swing the Champions League final away from Liverpool and in the Spanish club’s favour on Saturday night. Immediately after scoring a second stunning goal, man-of-the-match Bale suggested the 3-1 victory in Kiev could be his final game for Madrid where he has recently struggled to be a starting presence under Zidane.

Phil Bennett is backing Rhys Patchell to make the Wales No.10 shirt his own this summer – despite the Scarlets’ loss of their Guinness Pro 14 crown. Patchell was part of the Scarlets team overwhelmed 40-32 at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday, where the Irish province completed an historic Pro 14 and European Champions Cup double. Leo Cullen's men ran in five tries and Jonathan Sexton kicked 13 points as they became the first Celtic side to win the domestic and European Cup titles in the same season, a feat their 2011 and 2012 predecessors failed to achieve.
