Gareth Furlong bagged his second goal of the Belfius EuroHockey Championship as Wales lost to Spain in Antwerp. The Surbiton HC defender followed up his strike in the 2-2 draw with England on the opening day.
Welsh athletes will be taking on some of the world’s best at Sunday’s Diamond League meeting in Birmingham. The latest leg of the international athletics roadshow features more than 60 global medallist, including 10 reigning Olympic champions, two Paralympic champions and 13 reigning world champions. 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. The £15m Spanish striker went 1,022 days without a Swansea goal before this season but now has three goals in three league games. 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.
Warren Gatland says Wales will not get carried away after replacing New Zealand as World Rugby’s top-ranked nation. Wales’ 13-6 World Cup warm-up victory over England in Cardiff saw them end the All Blacks’ 10-year unbroken rankings reign. And their debut rise to the summit comes just 34 days before the World Cup kicks off in Japan.
Wales came agonisingly close to pulling off a shock victory over England on their return to the top tier of European competition after 20 years. Coach Zak Jones’ side were within three minutes of victory in their opening Pool A game at the Belfius EuroHockey Championships in Antwerp.
