Welsh athletes will be taking on some of the world’s best at Sunday’s Diamond League meeting in Birmingham.

Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Melissa Courtney, who beat Laura Muir in the Vitality Westminster Mile earlier this year, will line up over the same distance in the Milicent Fawcett Mile alongside fellow Brit Eilish McCoglan.
Steve Cooper says Borja Bastón was revelling in the role of leading the line after his two goals secured their 3-2 win over Preston.

It was his equaliser on the stroke of half-time that gave the hosts a lifeline after Joe Rafferty’s early strike put a dominant Preston side ahead after 11 minutes.

Wales’ 13-6 World Cup warm-up victory over England in Cardiff saw them end the All Blacks’ 10-year unbroken rankings reign.
