Scott Williams Can Prove He's Still The Real Deal, Insists Scarlets Coach Dwayne Peel

Scott Williams has been tipped to recapture the form which originally made him a star on the international stage now he has rejoined the Scarlets. The 58-times capped Wales centre left the Scarlets three years ago to join the Ospreys, but his time at the Liberty Stadium was plagued by injuries. But he’s now returned home to Llanelli, and new Scarlets head coach Dwayne Peel is confident he can get the best out of the 30-year-old.

Gareth Anscombe's Head Is Fine . . . And So Is His Knee, Says Ospreys' Toby Booth As Wales Star Gets Ready For League Bow

Gareth Anscombe has come through the mental and well as the physical tests and is ready for his competitive comeback, according to Ospreys coach Toby Booth.

Down And Dirty Downes Will Clean Up This Season, Says Swansea City's Russell Martin

Swansea City head coach Russell Martin hailed Flynn Downes after the midfielder was at the heart of their first home victory of the season. Joel Piroe's first-half strike was enough to secure a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield to end a run of four games without a win. It was a fourth clean sheet in five games at home for Martin's men, who crucially found a breakthrough after failing to score in their previous two home matches.

Kieran Hardy Is Picking The Brains Of His Hero As Scarlets Get Ready For Edinburgh Opener

When Dwayne Peel helped the Scarlets win the Celtic League title in 2004, Kieran Hardy was just a small face in the ground. Now, Peel is at the helm for their URC opener at Edinburgh on Saturday and scrum-half Hardy is hoping to absorb plenty of his coach’s know-how as he tells Graham Thomas. Kieran Hardy believes his boyhood hero Dwayne Peel can be the guiding light that enables him to hold onto the Wales No.9 shirt this season. Scarlets scrum-half Hardy was just eight-years-old when his father took him to Stradey Park to see Peel in his pomp clinch the old Celtic League title back in 2004.

Kieffer Moore - One Goal In 10 Games - Has Been Affected By Covid, Says Cardiff City's Mick McCarthy

Kieffer Moore has been left drained of his goalscoring powers by Covid, according to his Cardiff City manager Mick McCarthy. The Wales striker has only scored once in 10 matches so far this season and his boss reckons it’s due to a double interruption forced by the virus. Moore - who hit 24 goals for club and country last season, including one at the Euros finals – went down with coronavirus in July, almost immediately after returning from summer duty with Wales.
