When Wales meet Italy in Llanelli on Saturday, it will be for the less than cherished title of fifth-place play-off winners of the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup. If that title doesn’t sound too grand then it’s because Wales’ result have not been either, during the fractured year of 2020. The corresponding Six Nations match back in February saw Wales head coach Wayne Pivac begin his reign as Warren Gatland’s successor on a winning note.

Dewi Lake Can Make A Big Splash As A Wales Hooker . . . If He Sorts His Arrows, Says Ospreys Boss

Wales Are Too Nice And Need More Dog, Barks Scott Quinnell

Scott Quinnell believes Wales rediscovered some of their doggedness against England last weekend – but reckons they still lack bite. The former Wales and Lions No.8 was encouraged by aspects of the 24-13 defeat in Llanelli, but argues there is a soft streak running through Wayne Pivac’s team that needs to be hardened up. “Sometimes I look at Wales and I think everybody is just a bit too nice,” said Quinnell.

Sheyi Ojo Insists Cardiff City Can Turn Rescue Act Into Promotion Push

Sheyi Ojo believes Cardiff City can use their emphatic 4-0 victory over Luton as the launch pad to get themselves back into the race for promotion.

There is still a seven point gap between Cardiff and the play-off places, and 10 points between Harris’s side and the automatic promotion spots, but Ojo – whose team host Huddersfield in another home match on Tuesday - says: “We want to get promoted. That’s the reason we’re all fighting.
