Courageous Cardiff Earn Dai Young Approval After Ray Lee-Lo Decision Goes Against Them

Cardiff City's Mick McCarthy Wanted To Call Someone To Cheer Him Up . . . He Rang Steve Bruce

Under fire Cardiff City boss Mick McCarthy admitted he rang up Steve Bruce before his 1,000th game as a manger because he wanted “to speak to someone who is feeling worse than me”.

The top end of the Swansea Valley has been a hotbed breeding ground for sporting talent for years. Bleddyn Bowen, Robert Jones, Greg Thomas, Justin Tipuric and Ben Davies are just some of the stars the local schools have honed in various sports. The current crop isn’t bad, either – Wales and Cardiff City footballer Rubin Colwill and Ospreys centre Joe Hawkins, who plays against Munster on Saturday night, and who spoke to Graham Thomas.

Their progress is proof that the future of elite golf in Wales is in good hands with those players acting as role models for the grass roots, as Tom Prosser reports.
