Right, then. Here we go. The start of what will be a World Rally Championship winning year for Elfyn Evans. Hopefull For the first time in the sport’s history, a Welsh driver will begin the new season as favourite for the world rally title.

Wales are close to securing their place in the netball tournament at the Commonwealth Games after boosting their world ranking. Head coach Sara Moore’s team beat the Republic of Ireland, the Isle of Man, and Gibraltar at the weekend in a tournament played at Ebbw Vale to secure the Wendy White trophy. It was the first international matches Wales have been able to host since 2019 and the victories have put them on the threshold of confirming their place at the Birmingham Games later this year.
