Sam Finds Silver Lining In Glasgow....Now For That Tokyo Time

A thrilling first day of action at the British Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow saw Welsh athletes claim four medals with the promise of more to come on Sunday. Cardiff's Sam Gordon led the way for Wales with a silver medal in a closely fought men's 60m final.

France Insist Shaun Edwards' Heart Belongs To Paris Now

France team manager Raphael Ibanez has praised Shaun Edwards’ professionalism as the former Wales defence coach prepares for his Cardiff return. Edwards spent 12 years on Warren Gatland’s coaching team, helping Wales to win four Six Nations titles — three of them Grand Slams — and reach two Rugby World Cup semi-finals. After the World Cup in Japan, Edwards accepted a contract from France and has helped Les Tricolors win their first two Six Nations matches. On Saturday, they are chasing a first victory in Cardiff since 2010.

Sports Technology Has Taken Flight Like A Pair Of Nike Alpha Fly . . . And No-One Knows The Destination

You don’t have to be a ranting Premier League football manager, raging against VAR, to understand how technology is changing every aspect of sport. From parkrun to Eliud Kipchoge, sport is being dramatically altered. Graham Thomas speaks to some of those at the sharp end of the transformation. In Wales – as in so many other countries around the world – runners watched in awe and open-mouthed disbelief as Eliud Kipchoge became the first athlete to run the marathon in under two hours back in October. Not everyone, though, was concentrating on the Keynan superstar’s grimace as he bounded along the road in Vienna. Many top class runners were looking at what Kipchoge had on his feet and wondering if the technology of the Nike Alpha Fly might give them wings, too.

Callum Paterson . . . The New Patron Saint Of Cardiff City's Lost Causes

Callum Paterson has become a symbol of Cardiff City’s street-fighting resurgence, according to his manager Neil Harris. Scotland international Paterson has scored four goals in his last seven games for the club, propelling them from the middle reaches of the Championship to within touching distance of the play-off places. The 25-year-old has done it – says his manager – on the back of hard work and a resourceful attitude, plus the advice given from his boss who scored 156 goals during his own career as a striker.

Welsh Athletes Head To Glasgow And Pembrey But With Eyes On Tokyo And Paris

Hundreds of Welsh athletes are preparing to compete in wildly contrasting conditions this weekend. But the goal for many of the elite athletes competing at each venue will be the same – taking the next step towards representing Great Britain at the summer’s two big international events. Some of the nation’s top track and field athletes will battle for medals at the British Indoor Athletics Championships in the relative calm of the Emirates Arena in Glasgow on Saturday and Sunday.

France Question Wales' Handling Of Dan Biggar After Head Knock

France have questioned Wales’ handling of Dan Biggar’s recovery from a head injury – despite the recruitment of a concussion specialist to oversee the player’s return. In a sideswipe from France team manager Raphael Ibanez that followed the former hooker’s dismissal of cheating allegations made against his team as “childish”, Ibanez stoked the fires before Saturday’s Six Nations clash in Cardiff. "It was a blatant, childish attack,” said Ibanez in reference to the claims of Wales prop Wyn Jones who had previously stated that France would cheat at scrum time.

WRU Sets Up £100k Fund To Help Flooded Clubs Get Back On Their Feet

The Welsh Rugby Union has set aside £100,000 to support clubs affected by Storm Dennis. The WRU has been working to assess the impact of the storm in rugby communities in Wales and has announced it will provide extra help and funding to the affected clubs. An 'exceptional circumstances' fund of £100,000 has been created, while the WRU is sourcing other resources to help tackle the problems.

Wayne Pivac Insists 859 Caps Will Weigh Heavily In Wales' Favour Against France

Wales will field the most capped team in Six Nations history on Saturday – and head coach Wayne Pivac hopes that experience can be a factor against France. The Wales starting line-up contains a record 859 caps, with more than half the side having played at least 50 Tests and skipper Alun Wyn Jones edging close to 140 for his country. It breaks the previous best mark of 822 set by Italy against Scotland in 2012.
