Organisers of the 2020 Cardiff University Cardiff Half Marathon have again put back the date of the race due to COVID-19. This year's race had been re-scheduled for 28 March 2021 but has now been postponed further, until 3 October 2021.
Neil Harris says Cardiff City will face a different Derby team to the one they beat a few months ago - and not just because Wayne Rooney is missing. When the sides faced each other last July both were challenging for the top six, but it was the Bluebirds who came out on top 2-1 to reach the play-offs as the Rams missed out.
Wales defender Lucy Howells will be returning to Celtic Dragons for a third season in the Vitality Netball Superleague. The Pembroke-born player's debut in 2019 came in the live televised match against Team Bath at Arena Birmingham.
Wales must execute the perfect performance to have any chance of toppling table-topping Norway tonight, according to manager Jayne Ludlow. Norway are currently in pole position to qualify for Euro 2022 with Wales four points behind in second spot in Group C, while this afternoon’s visitors also have a game in hand.
Table-toppers Newport County plan to stretch their lead at the top of League Two tonight thanks to the elasticity of goalkeeper Nick Townsend. The 25-year-old former Barnsley keeper has made some superb saves in managing three clean sheets on the bounce for County who have not conceded a goal for 299 minutes. This time last season, Townsend was kicking his heels and cursing his luck as he saw Tom King string together six successive clean sheets to help County to a dream start to their campaign.
Former Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm has earned plaudits from the club after he announced his retirement. The 37-year-old left Tottenham in July at the end of his contract and has now called time on his playing career. Spurs paid tribute on their official website, writing: "Michel's daily work with skipper and number one Hugo (Lloris) over the years cannot be underestimated, as well as his influence on our younger goalkeepers, the likes of Alfie Whiteman and Brandon Austin."
Rhys Webb is among a number of Welsh rugby stars – past and present – who stand to lose large amounts of money from the collapse of a Cardiiff-based financial services firm. The Wales scrum-half and former Wales forward Ian Gough are likely to lose tens of thousands of pounds, while others players such as former Wales and Ospreys wing Eli Walker also put their faith in businesswoman Claire Louise Thomas. The fall-out from the implosion of the Juno Moneta Group could also leave the Scarlets heavily out of pocket. Cardiff City were another club who had dealings with the company now in administration.
