Graham Coughlan Newport county
Newport County manager Graham Coughlan has given a scathing assessment of his team - and questioned his own future - after they suffered a sixth successive defeat. The County boss said the club’s fans deserved better after their latest setback - a 2-1 loss at home against Tranmere Rovers.

They may be heading to Ireland seeking their first win in the 2024 Guinness Women’s Six Nations, but Ioan Cunningham’s Welsh team will be travelling to Cork with confidence still high. If the home defeat to Scotland was a shock to the system, the loss to reigning champions England at Ashton Gate was at least encouraging. To stand any chance of repeating the heroics of last year, that saw Wales finish third, a victory in Ireland is a must.
