They play every week and bid to outdo each other as much with their names as on the scoreboard. Base Invaders v Son Of A Pitch. Drum and Bases v Saved By The Balls. Bats Hit Crazy v The Merry Go Rounders.
Gemma Grainger has insisted Wales can still stay in the top tier of the Nations League despite suffering her biggest defeat as manager in front of her own fans. The Wales boss was left looking for crumbs of comfort after her team were demolished, 5-1, by a slick Denmark side at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Tributes have been paid from across Welsh rugby to Glanmor Griffiths, the founding father of the Principality Stadium, who has died at the age of 83. During his time as treasurer, chair and president of the Welsh Rugby Union he became a towering and sometimes controversial figure who became known throughout Wales simply as ‘Glanmor’.
Matthew Maynard insists it will be the business of winning and not emotion driving him through his final match as Glamorgan coach which starts on Tuesday.

Gemma Grainger insists she will send her Wales team out against Denmark on Tuesday night, convinced they can score the goals for success in the Women’s Nations League.

Gareth Anscombe admits there is an element of relief after Wales avoided a fight to the finish in their quest for a Rugby World Cup quarter-final place. Wales’ record-breaking 40-6 victory over Australia meant they got the job done early in Pool C.
The Welsh fans ran out of songs to sing long before the celebrations ran out, after watching Australia routed in a way none had seen in their lifetimes. The helplessness of Wales against Australia on occasion down the years was replicated, but in mirror image.
Wales record victory over Australia has seen their odds on winning the World Cup almost halve overnight. Warren Gatland’s red wall shut out the Aussies with a record 40-6 triumph that has seen their price on lifting the trophy drop from 40/1 before the game to just 22/1 this morning (Mon).
Andy Cook scored a hat-trick as he helped to bury Newport County, 4-1 at Rodney Parade. Bradford City smashed Graham Coughlan’s team’s unbeaten league record. The 32-year-old striker, whose 31 goals last season enabled the Yorkshiremen to reach the play-offs, hadn't scored this season, but grabbed two in the first half and then bagged his hat-trick in the 92nd minute.
In a tale of redemption and raw rugby spirit, Aberavon roared back to life after a recent defeat by Pontypool. The Wizards conquered the same team this time round with a triumphant 20-10 victory at the formidable Talbot Athletic Ground.
