Wales Physical Disability Rugby League head coach Craig Fisher says his squad is ready to make its mark at the upcoming PDRL World Cup. Fisher has named a 15-player squad for the tournament which takes place in Warrington from Sunday 23 October.
Dai Flanagan insists Dragons players need to enjoy the company of their coaches as he looked forward to the rest of the season in charge at the region, following the sidelining of Dean Ryan. Although the Dragons have yet to confirm the departure of director of rugby Ryan, it is expected to be announced this week after the agreement of a financial settlement. It means head coach Flanagan will step up to be the man in charge and he has vowed to create a healthy environment, building on the feelgood factor of Sunday’s 23-17 victory over Munster.
Ben Pritchard plans on using his bronze medal at the World Rowing Championships as a springboard to the Paris Olympics in 2014. The Welsh rowing ace's first world medal in the PR1 Men's single sculls added to the bronze he won at the Europeans in Munich in July.
Robert Page insists relegation from the top tier of the Nations League on Sunday is softened by the prospect of looking forward to Wales’ first World Cup since 1958 in two months’ time. A 1-0 defeat to Poland in Cardiff on Sunday night condemned Page’s men to finishing bottom of a group also containing Belgium and the Netherlands. Wales’ four Nations League games in June were split either side of a vital World Cup qualifying play-off against Ukraine, which forced Page to rest a number of key players for their 2-1 defeat in Poland to start the group.
Osian Pryce finally fulfilled his dream as he was crowned Motorsport UK British Rally Champion after storming to victory at the Trackrod Rally Yorkshire.
Wayne Hennessey says Wales are heading to Qatar to win the World Cup – but firstly they want to get the Nations League job done against Poland. Wales will end a 64-year wait to play at the World Cup in November, making their first finals appearance since 1958 when they were beaten by Brazil in the last eight. They will play in the same group as England, Iran and the United States, with bookmakers having them around 150-1 outsiders to win the trophy.
Toby Booth has told the Ospreys it’s time to wise up after what’s shaping up to be a disappointing weekend for the four Welsh regions. Only the Dragons – who host Munster on Sunday afternoon – can prvent a clean sweep of defeats for the Welsh sides in the United Rugby Championship. With Cardiff having conceded eight tries in a 52-24 thrashing in Glasgow, the Scarlets also shipped over a half century of points at home to Ulster, and leaked seven tries, in going down 55-39.
Gareth Bale is determined to ensure Wales don’t follow England out of the Nations League trap door. Wales must beat Poland at home on Sunday evening to remain in League A of the biennial competition. Bale has not played 90 minutes since a World Cup qualifier against Estonia last September, but the Wales captain has declared himself fit for the must-win contest at the Cardiff City Stadium.
