Bonymaen RFC . . . The Biggest Sporting Draw In Swansea As Fans Flock To The Old Windy Hilltop

The fans are back in Welsh sport – sort of. A host of smaller football and rugby clubs were able to welcome up to 500 supporters through their gates this weekend and it’s doors fully open everywhere next weekend. It meant some strange comparisons on Saturday, as Owen Morgan discovered when he went to watch Bonymaen RFC. Strange sporting anomalies have become the norm across the globe over the past two years due to Covid regulations.

Russell Martin Hails Swansea City's Return After Five Weeks Without Full Training Sessions

Dai Young Insists Cardiff Are Moving Forward Despite A Third European Defeat After Josh Adams Error

Dai Young has refused to be down-hearted by what appears to be the end of Cardiff’s hopes of making progress to the knockout stages of the Heineken Champions Cup. The head coach has chosen, instead, to look on the bright side of his team’s 36-33 defeat to Harlequins - even though victory was offered up to the English champions in the closing seconds. A mistake by Wales wing Josh Adams, who gave away a penalty when he tried to run the ball from deep with the scores tied at 33-33, was punished by the mercurial Marcus Smith, who had earlier scored a scintillating try to bring his team level.

"Old Guy" Sam Davies Feeling Fresh As Dragons Bid For Euro Re-Boot

Sam Davies reckons he has never felt fresher in January and aims to prove it when the Dragons resume their season on Saturday after a month-long break.
