Cardiff Met have been forced to put up the ‘Sold Out’ signs a day ahead of their BUCS Super Rugby ‘Cardiff Clash’ with their noisy-neighbours Cardiff University on Wednesday, 5 October. More than 4,000 tickets were sold in the space of 10 days for the derby game at the Arms Park, putting the fixture on a par with attendances at the Dragons and Ospreys so far this season. Last season, the two Welsh capital universities clashed three times, with a mere five points splitting the two teams across the three fixtures.
Rubin Colwill is facing a fight to prove his readiness to go to the World Cup with Wales next month. The Cardiff City striker is set to miss two more Bluebirds games this week after a freak training accident ruled him out of last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Burnley. Interim boss Mark Hudson confirmed the Qatar hopeful won’t feature in Tuesday night’s home game against Blackburn Rovers and unless he gets back on the grass this week won’t feature at Wigan this weekend.
Alys Thomas has been forced to retire from competitive swimming. The 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallist has called time on a glittering career on the advice of medical professionals due to an ongoing wrist injury. She first sustained the injury before the 2010 Games in Delhi, but her ambition to make a second Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 has gone.
Rachel Rowe insists Wales have not finished making history ahead of their first-ever Women’s World Cup play-off tie. Wales host Bosnia and Herzegovina in Cardiff on Thursday, the first of three potential games needed to reach next summer’s World Cup finals in Australia and New Zealand. “We’ve made history but we’re not finished,” said Reading midfielder Rowe, who will win her 50th cap against Bosnia.
Ryan Day has labelled his British Open snooker title triumph as the best performance of his career. The Welshman took the final four frames to defeat Mark Allen 10-7 after what was an incredibly tense affair to win the 2022 British Open. Coming into this showpiece encounter, Allen was the pre-match favourite, having easily turned over Noppon Saengkham in the semi-finals.
Elliot Kear will emulate Whitchurch High School classmate Sam Warburton by leading Wales at the Rugby League World Cup. Kear heads a 24-strong squad named by men’s head coach, John Kear, for the tournament in England - nothing up another success for the Cardiff school.
