Rhys Webb is among a number of Welsh rugby stars – past and present – who stand to lose large amounts of money from the collapse of a Cardiiff-based financial services firm. The Wales scrum-half and former Wales forward Ian Gough are likely to lose tens of thousands of pounds, while others players such as former Wales and Ospreys wing Eli Walker also put their faith in businesswoman Claire Louise Thomas. The fall-out from the implosion of the Juno Moneta Group could also leave the Scarlets heavily out of pocket. Cardiff City were another club who had dealings with the company now in administration.
Natalie Powell will be gunning for a fourth European Championships medal in Prague next month. The Beulah judoka will be part of an 18-strong British team at the Championships in the Czech Republic from 19-21 November.
Defender Leila Thomas admits she is fired up over her return to Celtic Dragons for the Vitality Netball Superleague season. The 19-times capped Wales international has already had two seasons with the Dragons and one at Team bath during her Superleague career.
Gerwyn Price will warm up for the World Cup of Darts in November – where he will carry Welsh hopes alongside Johnny Clayton - by competing in the European Championships which start in Germany on Thursday. Not only has Price become the form player in the world right now, but James Dodd argues the Welshman will soon overtake Michael van Gerwen as the official world number one, too. Earlier this month, Gerwyn Price, the one-man darts winning machine from Markham, won his fourth major televised event – the World Grand Prix – after winning the 2018 and 2019 Grand Slam of Darts as well as the World Series of Darts Finals last month. He has now won four of the major titles in the sport inside the past two years.
Blaine Hudson believes the way in which The New Saints hit back to beat Haverfordwest County in the JD Cymru Premier League will have knocked the stuffing out of their major title rivals. The Pembrokeshire side headed north looking for another upset following their 1-0 triumph at Bala Town and twice took the lead at Park Hall against an unbeaten TNS team. It took a cruel own goal in injury time to crush their dreams.
Wayne Pivac has admitted Wales will lose to Scotland next week unless they improve on their sloppy display in Paris. The Wales head coach had a simple message after his side’s 38-21 defeat to France that has raised the prospect of a fifth successive defeat next weekend when his side resume their Six Nations campaign. Wales lost against Ireland, France and England in the tournament earlier this year and ahead of their final game, Pivac conceded: “We have to be a lot better next week.”
Newport County manager Michael Flynn is refusing to get carried away despite his club's best start to a league season. The Exiles returned to the top of the Sky Bet League Two table after a thumping 3-0 victory at Bradford City.
Most eyes were trained towards Paris on Saturday night for their weekend rugby fix, but some hard core types had already enjoyed a Friday night starter where Liam Williams was in action. Well, “enjoyed” might be putting it strongly. Harri Morgan watched the Scarlets win 10-3 at Benetton and learned some life lessons. It was the type of game that would have left fans lodging requests for a refund - had there been any. What? Oh, they’re allowed fans in stadia in Italy. Lucky them. On the home front, as we enter the firebreak - a concept we hope is more a case of lost keys than long term lockdown - a return to live sport doesn’t appear close. Unlucky us.
