Shaun Edwards Insists Wales Will Find Calm Waters After Rob Howley World Cup Storm

Wales will weather the physical and meteorological storms predicted in their opening Rugby World Cup Pool D clash against Georgia at the City of Toyota Stadium on Monday, according to assistant coach Shaun Edwards. The build-up to the World Cup has been far from plain sailing, with three defeats in their last four tests and the off-field furore that saw attack coach Rob Howley return home from Japan for an alleged breach of rugby’s betting rules. But Edwards says that despite this, and the predictions of wind and rain for the match, they are confident of an opening victory.

Matt Grimes Insists Swans Still Have Their Swagger As They Aim To Shoot Down Robins

Matt Grimes has insisted Swansea City will not allow a stumble to become a fall when they visit Bristol City tomorrow. The Swans skipper believes his side will recover quickly from their first defeat of the season – one which cost them their place at the top of the Championship table. Last week’s 1-0 reverse against Nottingham Forest at the Liberty Stadium was not a result many saw coming after the team had taken 16 points from six games, but Grimes insists it was a rare one-off and his side will prove as much at Ashton Gate, even though the home side are only two points and two places behind the Swans.
