Wales Coach Wayne Pivac Tries To Lock In English-Based Stars For Entire Six Nations

Wayne Pivac is trying to convince English clubs to allow their Welsh international players to stay in his Six Nations camp for the whole tournament. There are six players – Tomas Francis, Will Rowlands, Taulupe Faletau, Dan Biggar, Callum Sheedy and Louis Ress-Zammit - in Wales’ 36-man squad who are based over the border. Rather than allow them to return to their English clubs during the break weekends in the tournament, Pivac wants the half dozen released for the entirety of the Six Nations, to protect the Wales squad amid continued coronavirus concerns.

Welsh Gymnastics Star Latalia Bevan Retires At 19

Commonwealth Games silver medallist Latalia Bevan has confirmed her retirement from elite competition. The 19-year-old women’s artistic gymnast from Merthyr Tydfil has called it a day on the back of a stellar competitive career, capped by a stunning silver she brought home for Team Wales from Australia’s Gold Coast in 2018.

Rhys Webb Left Out By Wales Coach Wayne Pivac . . . But Dan Lydiate Returns

Rhys Webb has been left out of the Wales squad for the Six Nations, but coach Wayne Pivac has given a recall to veteran Dan Lydiate. Pivac has resisted calls to bring back another veteran – Bath’s Cardiff Blues-bound outside-half Rhys Priestland – but there are also returns for fly-half Jarrod Evans, wing Hallam Amos and prop Rhodri Jones. Scrum-half Webb, who returned from France to join the Ospreys and revive his Wales career, has lost out to Scarlets youngster Kieran Hardy, as well as established No.9 rivals Gareth Davies and Tomos Williams.

The New King . . . World Record For Longest Goal Set To Go To Newport County Keeper Tom

Newport County goalkeeper Tom King could be about to enter football’s record books after his incredible goal at Cheltenham. King scored directly from a goal-kick in the 1-1 draw at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Tuesday night – an estimated 95-metre yard effort that could smash the current record held by Asmir Begovic. Newport’s 25-year-old Wales squad keeper stunned the home side with his mighty effort that bounced once and then – wind-assisted – flew over the head of opposite number Josh Griffiths.

How Long Before Bigger Clubs Notice The Job Being Done by Swansea City's Steve Cooper?

Swansea City travel to Blackburn Rovers tonight where a sixth victory in their last seven games would further strengthen their position in the Championship’s automatic promotion places. Head coach Steve Cooper is exceeding most expectations, a familiar achievement says Jack Hammett, but one which normally signals the attention of bigger clubs elsewhere.  Like hipsters talking about successful bands, Swansea City fans can also be smug about the managers who started their rise to success in the Liberty Stadium dug-out. “I knew them before they were big”, kind of thing.

Cardiff City Deal Struck For Perry Ng, Say Crewe
