Elfyn Evans Looking To Go The Full Monte In 2021 After His WRC Title Heartbreak

Elfyn Evans is hoping to give it the full Monte when he launches his FIA World Rally Championship campaign in Monaco on Thursday.

Mark Jones . . . Adventurer, Crusader, Warrior, And One Day Returner To Wales

Mark Jones has moved a lot closer to home and insists one day he wants to return to Welsh rugby. The new assistant coach at Worcester Warriors had been working in New Zealand with the all-conquering Crusaders, but even the best non-Test team in the world had to give way to coronavirus. Having made it back from Canterbury in December for a Christmas break, the pandemic and its effect on flights and transglobal workers meant the Jones family were unable to resume their new life in the southern hemisphere.

It's Wales v Italy . . . As Laura McAllister Steps Up Campaign For FIFA Seat

Wales fans are hoping for success at the re-scheduled European Championships later this year, but before then there is another head-to-head. FIFA has an empty seat at the table and there’s a Welsh woman with a formidable background who wants to claim it as a step towards change as Graham Thomas reports. Welsh football may be weighed down with uncertainty at present, but one opportunity close to hand is a chance to get a place around the most powerful table in the sport. Laura McAllister – a former Wales international as well as ex-chair of Sport Wales – is standing for election to the FIFA council and intends to use that platform to further transform the women’s game in both Wales and around the world.

Sol Bamba Will Find PFA Stand With Him, Insists Cardiff City Boss Neil Harris

Neil Harris has backed the PFA to stand by Sol Bamba – just as he insists they stood squarely behind him as he overcame cancer. The Cardiff City manager recovered from testicular cancer, diagnosed when he was just 23, and went on to enjoy a hugely successful playing career before becoming a boss. In a cruel repetition, Bluebirds defender Bamba, 36, is now undergoing chemotherapy for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but Harris believes the much-criticised players’ union can offer the same support and backing he was given 20 years ago.

Where There's A Will, There's A Way Back . . . As Wales Prop Taylor Goes From Glass-Washer To Gym Owner

In 2014, Will Taylor started for Wasps in front of 82,000 people against Harlequins at Twickenham.  Three years later he was selling vegetables on the streets of London and collecting empty glasses in his friend's nightclub. They say life’s a rollercoaster but the 29-year-old from Swansea wouldn’t have expected there to be quite as many sharp turns.

Welsh Rugby To Be Given Welsh Government Cash From New Spectator Fund

The Welsh Rugby Union will receive financial support from Welsh government funding, which is set to be confirmed this week.

Cardiff City's Neil Harris Insists Questions Over His Future Are "Pointless" After Fifth Defeat

Neil Harris has insisted questions over his own future as Cardiff City manager are “pointless” despite a fifth successive defeat. The Bluebirds boss was defiant after saying he was proud of his team’s performance in their 2-1 home defeat to Championship leaders Norwich City. Cardiff were thoroughly outplayed by a slick Canaries team who were 2-0 ahead at the break, despite missing five players, including top scorer Teemu Pukki – four of them due to Covid-19.
