Newport County Boss Graham Coughlan To Consider His Position After Sixth Defeat

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. That makes it a miserable round half dozen of losses on the bounce for Newport, who only a month ago looked to have a decent outside chance of making the play-offs before their rotten run.

Ioan Cunningham Under Pressure But Questions WRU Strategy For Women's Game

Ioan Cunningham expects scrutiny over his position as head coach after Wales glued themselves to the bottom of the Women’s Six Nations table. Like his counterpart in charge of the men’s team – Warren Gatland – Cunningham is a man under pressure who cannot ease things until he stops losing. The former Scarlets coach, who brought a sharp upturn in the fortunes of the national side in the women’s game two years ago, admits results have put him in the firing line.

Wrexham Ride To League One Is A Reward For The Fans, Says Phil Parkinson

Ryan Reynolds has said that he and Rob McElhenney are having the “ride of our lives” following another Wrexham promotion. The Deadpool star, 47, co-owns the club with fellow Hollywood actor McElhenney.

Hold My Beer . . . Wrexham Poised To Clinch Another Promotion Party

Paul Mullin Wrexham
Wrexham could be hosting a promotion party on Saturday, but manager Phil Parkinson won’t be ordering the beers and champagne just yet. The Dragons manager insists it will be business as usual before their League Two home match against Forest Green Rovers, even though Wrexham may end up celebrating back-to-back promotions for their first time in the club’s history.

Adam Beard Bristling For Ospreys’ Anglo-Welsh Assault On Gloucester

Adam Beard Ospreys
Wales forward Adam Beard reckons the Ospreys have got the muscle memory to overpower Gloucester in their European Challenge Cup clash on Friday night. Last season, Beard was part of an Ospreys squad that did the double over French club Montpellier - an achievement that included an eye-catching away victory, when they went over the channel and won 21-10.

Wales Can Turn Their Campaign Around In Dublin, Says Abbie Fleming

Abbie Fleming Wales
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.
