The Six Nations Is Over. . . But The Rugby Season Is Not

The Six Nations has been packed away for another year and with it the interest of many fans. But Robert Rees believes now is the perfect time for ‘event-going’ rugby fans to try some other stuff lower down the menu – and for regions and clubs to ride the wave of interest rather than ignore it. Welsh rugby crowds often vary so much throughout the regional/club calender, with success - or lack of - fixture times and international windows being the main culprits to the variation. It's often a hot topic on social media platforms or down the clubhouse, but where have all the fans gone? 

Closed Roads Pave The Way For New Wales Rally GB Route

The organisers of Wales Rally GB have promised to take “full advantage” of the new closed road legislation, which came into force in Wales earlier this year, to create an exciting new-look route for this year’s event (4-7 October), with a shift of focus to the forests and venues of north Wales. A change in the law, which allows local authorities to suspend the Road Traffic Act for authorised motorsport events without requiring individual Acts of Parliament, came into force in Wales on 2 February this year. This won’t see long stretches of the A470 closed for rally cars to blast along, but it will see small sections of B roads closed, possibly joining forest stages such as Penmachno South and Penmachno North, and Dyfi and Gartheiniog, to make longer and more challenging speed tests. “Wales has some of the best driving roads in Europe and this initiative will provide the perfect platform to showcase the very best of the Welsh countryside,” said the 2017 Wales Rally GB winner Elfyn Evans at the time of the closed road announcement. “With the success of events like Wales Rally GB, Welsh motorsport is very much on the up and this will only encourage even more visitors to our region.”

No Brakes Is Snow Fun For Power

Mid Wales racing driver Ben Power had to contend with a burst brake line as well as snow, as he launched his campaign in the 2018 National Legends Car Championship with MRF Tyres.

Ryan Giggs Vows A Brave New Young World For Wales

Ryan Giggs is determined to promote young talent in his new role as Wales manager after playing his part in the rise of Marcus Rashford. Giggs was assistant manager at Manchester United when Rashford was handed his debut as an 18-year-old in a 2016 Europa League tie against Danish club Midtjylland. Rashford scored twice after replacing Anthony Martial, who had been injured in the warm-up, and has gone on to star for United and England — and Giggs insists he is keen to give youngsters opportunities on his Wales watch.

Non Stanford Calls On Wales Fans To Roar In Red

Non Stanford has urged Welsh sports fans to get behind Team Wales’ bid for success as the countdown begins to the Commonwealth Games. The former world triathlon champion is already out in Australia as she prepares for her event which is on the opening day of the Games on April 5. But the majority of Welsh competitors are yet to make their way to the Gold Coast for events that run between the opening ceremony on April 4 and April 14.

Cardiff Blues Finally Get Their Man As John Mulvihill Signs Up

Cardiff Blues have confirmed that John Mulvihill has been appointed to take over from Danny Wilson as head coach. It brings to an end a long and winding route for the region who believed they had both Geordan Murphy and Jim Mallinder lined up, only for those appointments to fall through. Following Wilson's decision to move on at the end of the season, the search for a successor was undertaken in conjunction with the Welsh Rugby Union.

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.
