Anwen Butten Has This Commonwealth Thing Sewn Up

Bowls is very much a family affair for Anwen Butten, who will be heading to her fifth successive Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. The 45-year-old made her Team Wales debut in Manchester in 2002, when she picked up the first of her two medals to date in partnership with Joanna Weale, and is showing no signs of weakening in her resolve to claim a gold before she retires. Her second medal came in Delhi in 2010, when she struck bronze once again in the women’s pairs in tandem with Hannah Smith. Eight years on, she travels with arguably the most talented Welsh women’s bowls team of all-time in pursuit of gold and glory.

The Wales senior XV pair have been named in their country's Sevens squad for the Games in Australia next month.

WRU: No Apology, Not Our Fault. . . But We Are Thinking Of Booze Changes

The Welsh Rugby Union have told a supporter who complained about drinkers ruining a Wales game it’s not their responsibility, although they are considering changes. A Wales fan paid £260 to take his family of four to watch the Six Nations match against Italy at the Principality Stadium. He then sent an email to the Union after a pint of beer was spilt over his wife and their experience was constantly disturbed by beer dripped from rested pints on the canopy above them, as well as those carrying and fetching drinks from the bars.
