West Wales motorsport team Spencer Sport has finished second in the Toyo Tires MSA British Rallycross Championship at its first attempt.

Gareth Anscombe Warned His Wales Shirt Could Be Handed Back To Dan Biggar

Gareth Anscombe has been warned by Warren Gatland to expect stiff competition for the Wales No.10 shirt against Australia. Anscombe was given a rare starting opportunity at outside-half for the first of the autumn Tests against Scotland last weekend and responded with a confident performance.

Gethin Jenkins . . . The Unsmiling, Quiet Assassin Who Now Has To Find A Voice

After 18 years as a professional rugby player, 16 of them playing for Wales, Gethin Jenkins, has pulled off the strapping for the final time. Graham Thomas considers the Cardiff Blues’ prop’s long career . . . and his new one. He went out like he came in – narrow-eyed and unsmiling. There was a brief grin when he slapped a boot at a conversion kick that sailed well wide, and again when he navigated along a guard of honour, but otherwise it was the same old Gethin Jenkins, all fixed stare and as inscrutable as a poker player with a half-decent hand.

So new is the VR4K Oreca FIA R4-spec rally car concept, that nobody in the sport really knew what to make of it – until this weekend, when Osian Pryce gave it a dream world competition debut!
