Bears Admit More Homework Needed After Mixed Weekend

Penarth Hockey Club 1st XI admit that they have homework to do after succumbing to a fourth Verde Recreo Premiership defeat at Cardiff University, but there were better results for the club’s other sides on a packed weekend. Cardiff University  5-3  PENARTH Frustrated by their loss to Cheltenham the previous weekend, the 1st XI travelled across the capital to face Cardiff University on match day five of the 2018-19 Verde Recreo Premiership campaign.

Llewellin Wins At Silverstone to Secure Swift Series Silver

Tom Llewellin ended his first Swift Sport Championship season in fine style at the weekend, by taking victory in the final round of the series at Silverstone in his flying Peter Gwynne Motorsport Suzuki. Victory saw the talented 17-year old driver from Haverfordwest, who won the MSA Junior Rallycross Championship title last year, finish runner-up in the highly competitive one-make series. Race day at Silverstone started with an excellent third place finish in the opening heat – a truly great result as Llewellin had to battle through from the back row of the grid. He followed that up with second place in heat two, but things didn’t go as planned in heat three, when a clash with another competitor saw his Suzuki sustain steering damage – but luckily he’d already done enough to qualify for the semi-final.

The Jon Fox Fend Was Good . . . But The Owen Farrell Smash Shook Up The First Autumn Offering

It’s claimed in some quarters than rugby is going soft. No-one seems to have told Owen Farrell, though. Harri Morgan looks at the England man Wales will run into again in the Six Nations and whether Eddie Jones can continue to risk the mentality he brings to the red rose. It's about time I admitted it. I can't consume two games of rugby simultaneously - yet. I will persist.  The opening Saturday of the autumn internationals was enjoyed with Wales v Scotland on the big box. The year's fourth instalment of England v South Africa, consigned to the tablet. 

Spencer Sport Secures Second After Stunning Debut British Rallycross Championship Season

West Wales motorsport team Spencer Sport has finished second in the Toyo Tires MSA British Rallycross Championship at its first attempt. Against strong opposition from several well-established and vastly experienced rallycross teams, the squad – which is based in the village of Penrhiwllan, just outside Llandysul – has vowed to return next year, with its sights firmly set on winning the title. Its star driver, five-time champion Julian Godfrey, was one of three drivers still in contention for the title as he entered the final round of the series at Silverstone on Sunday.

Anna Shrugs Off Jet-Lag To Win Women's Title In Preston

Wales' table tennis prodigy Anna Hursey again showed her outstanding potential by winning the women’s singles at the Preston Grand Prix - aged 12. The Cardiff schoolgirl beat No 1 seed Haoyu Liu 3-1 (11-9, 9-11, 11-9, 11-7) in the semi-final.

Lawrence Of Anderlecht Handed Wales Call-Up By Giggs

Ryan Giggs has sprung a selection surprise by naming Anderlecht defender James Lawrence in the Wales squad for the games against Denmark and Albania. The Henley-on-Thames born player was on the books as a youngster at Arsenal, QPR and Ajax before joining the Belgium outfit in August 2018.

Evan's Doubles Success Brings Rankings Leap

Evan Hoyt has broken into the world's top 300 in doubles after a staggering rise of over 100 places. The Llanelli right-hander's reward for winning his first Challenger title in Australia is a move to 268 on the ATP doubles rankings.

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. But with Dan Biggar now back in contention for the first game that falls within the official Test window, Wales coach Gatland has hinted that change could be in the air.

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.
