Scarlets chairman Simon Muderack insists the Welsh regions have been short-changed over their supply of players to Wales’ title-winning Six Nations campaign. The region’s chief has called for a re-think into the financial distributions within Welsh rugby and believes only a re-allocation of resources can enable the game to recover from the effects of the pandemic. Muderack argues the Scarlets have not been compensated properly for their provision of 13 players to Wayne Pivac’s Wales squad this season.
Warren Abrahams insists Wales Women will learn the lessons from their thumping 45-0 defeat to Ireland and become a better side in the long run. South African Abrahams has quickly joined the long line of beaten Welsh coaches who talk about absorbing lessons, learning, progress, better days ahead, jam tomorrow, etc. That is after just two matches – both one-sided, heavy defeats in which Wales’ most encouraging moments came when they did no more than simply stem the flow of tries being conceded.

The Gemma Grainger era with Wales may have started with a defeat, but the new manager believes she has seen enough to leave her feeling positive about the future. Grainger's side were beaten 3-0 by Canada - a team flourishing with confidence at Cardiff's Leckwith Stadium on Friday evening - in the former Middlesborugh coach’s first game since taking over from Jayne Ludlow. Deanne Rose gave the visitors the lead in the first half, before Evelyn Viens doubled Canada's advantage with Jessie Fleming adding the third.
Jade Jones gave her Olympic bid the perfect boost when she was crowned European Taekwondo champion for the third time in Sofia. The Flint fighter's hat-trick of titles sets her up perfectly for her bid to become the first person in Taekwondo to win three successive Olympic Games golds this summer.
