Welsh bobsleigher Bruce Tasker was back on the World Cup podium last weekend after helping the British 4-man team claim bronze at the World Cup race in Park City, Utah, USA. Tasker was joined by pilot Brad Hall, Joel Fearon and Greg Cackett in becoming Britain’s first Bobsleigh World Cup medalists since John Jackson won silver alongside Tasker, Fearon and Stu Benson in Lake Placid in December, 2013. Before that, you had to go back to 1997 to find another British Men’s Bobsleigh medal on the World Cup circuit, with that success coming when Sean Ollson guided GB to bronze in La Plagne the season before he won the same colour medal at the Nagano Olympics.
Welsh football will come out in support of Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign later this month. The campaign aims to make sport everyone’s game by creating an environment that’s inclusive for LGBT fans and players. Every year Stonewall ask sports organisations to help raise awareness of anti-LGBT abuse, by asking clubs to show their support for the LGBT community. Research carried out last year found that 72% of football fans have heard anti-LGBT remarks at games over the last five years.
So, here we go again. Can Wales beat the All Blacks this week? No-one under pensionable age can remember what victory over New Zealand feels like. Geraint Powell looks at the fixture's history and says the tourists are more vulnerable than ever. Just don't part with a lot of money. Would you, as a Welsh rugby fan, be happy to lose to Australia, Georgia and South Africa in order to beat New Zealand? That has been an oft asked question ahead of this November campaign. I think it is fair to say that many readily answered “yes”. Unfortunately, that is not how beating the All Blacks actually works in practice. If you are unable to beat Georgia, and a weakened Welsh side came perilously close to being held to a draw on Saturday, the odds on beating the All Blacks are not great.

The 38-year-old former striker – currently coaching in the academy at Cardiff City - is already third favourite for the Wales role behind Tony Pulis and Ryan Giggs.
