Wales Winger Sorba Thomas Says Leaving Huddersfield's Struggles For Blackburn Rovers' Promotion Push Was A No-Brainer

Wales winger Sorba Thomas has swapped a relegation fight with Huddersfield for a promotion chase with Blackburn Rovers after being told he had fallen down the pecking order with the Terriers.

Warren Gatland Warns Wales They Are "Shooting Themselves In The Foot" Ahead Of Six Nations

Warren Gatland believes there is a need for discussion on Wales’ 60-cap selection rule amid uncertainty surrounding the futures of several players. The policy was established in 2017, with players who subsequently signed contracts to ply their trade outside Wales deemed ineligible for Test selection unless they have won at 60 caps or more.
