Misfire Mugs Evans Of Wales Rally GB Victory Opportunity

An engine misfire has put Elfyn Evans out of the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB. The Dolgellau driver was a superb second, just 8.9 seconds behind Ott Tänak, when he drove out of midday service in Deeside and headed for the first of this afternoon’s three forestry stages. But he never reached Clocaenog. On the A494 near Mold, a misfire stopped his M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC, with flames reportedly coming out of the exhaust and setting the car’s rear bodywork on fire.

Neil Warnock . . .Two Years And Counting At Cardiff City, But Is This The Beginning Of The End?

Is Neil Warnock’s time at Cardiff City slowly coming to an end? It is not a question any Cardiff City fan has been asking, but the Bluebirds boss was the one who raised the issue at his weekly pre-match press conference today (Friday) as he celebrated his second anniversary at the club.

As the two rivals meet on Saturday in the first Guinness Pro14 Welsh derby of the season, the Scarlets coach is convinced the opponents he knows best are now on the up.

Evans Flies In Close Battle For Wales Rally GB Lead

Elfyn Evans has made a magnificent start to today’s Dayinsure Wales Rally GB eight stages, and after the morning loop of five tests is second overall – just 8.9 seconds behind rally leader Ott Tänak. Co-driven by Dan Barritt, Evans started today in 13th place, after last night’s short opening stage at Tir Prince. The Dolgellau driver leapfrogged eight places to fifth after a great time through this morning’s slippery opening forest stage in Clocaenog and was then up to second after a superb time through Brenig, which is the longest stage of the event. And his time could have been even quicker, had a false puncture alarm not distracted him in his M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC. Another great run through Penmachno forest, plus two fast and consistent runs through a very tricky Slate Mountain stage, sees Evans enter midday service in Deeside in a very strong second place.

Ryan Giggs Expects Irish Eyes To Be Raging For Dublin Return

Ryan Giggs is expecting a fierce Irish backlash when he takes his Wales team to Dublin for the third round of the UEFA League of Nations to meet Martin O'Neill's Republic of Ireland side. While Giggs was in dreamland after his home debut as manager turned into a 4-1 rout at Cardiff City Stadium last month, opposite number O'Neill had his head in his hands after the mauling.  Things didn’t go as well in Denmark the following week with a 2-0 defeat in Aarhus, but Giggs remains confident his side can repeat their heroics against the Irish in Dublin.
