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”. For Bruce it was 1,000 and out after the 3-2 home defeat for Newcastle United against Spurs and McCarthy could well follow him onto the dole queue if his side suffers an eighth successive defeat to Middlesbrough on Saturday. “I spoke to Steve the week before and I actually rang him because I thought I’d find someone who is feeling worse than me. He was top of my list,” said McCarthy.

No Ordinary Joe . . . Hawkins Keen To Keep Pace With Football Pal Rubin Colwill As Ospreys Bid To Topple Munster

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. Joe Hawkins is keen to follow his old football rival Rubin Colwill onto the full international stage, but is happy to bide his time. Ospreys centre Hawkins and fellow 19-year-old Colwill – already a senior Wales football international after a breakthrough year at Cardiff City - used to play football against each other as 15-year-olds, until Hawkins gave his sole attention to rugby.

Archie Davies And Ffion Tynan Can Take Welsh Golf Global Again, Says Performance Chief

Welsh golfers Archie Davies and Ffion Tyan are currently in the USA, learning their craft in the most demanding competitions in the world for prospective professional golfers – the American collegiate system. 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. Jamie Donaldson was the last Welshman to represent Europe at a Ryder Cup back in 2014, but with a new winning mindset introduced by Golf Wales, hopes are high that the next Welsh golfing star may be just around the corner. Gillian O’Leary - director of performance for Golf Wales - says one of her biggest tasks since swapping her native Ireland for Wales has been to change the mindset of some of the golfers she works with.
