Pat Lam insists his Bristol Bears have plenty of good reasons to finally get stuck into the Scarlets this weekend – about 300,000 of them. The English club’s head coach reckons the cancellation of their home fixture against the Welsh region in December cost Bristol around £300,000. Lam acknowledges the 28-0 walkover victory in the Heineken Champions Cup occurred through no fault of the Scarlets – who were hit by Covid and isolation problems after their infamous trip to South Africa – but says their automatic four-tries-to-nil victory came at a cost.
Former Wales hooker Richard Hibbard has announced his retirement from rugby. Hibbard played 38 Wales internationals and three Tests for the Lions on the 2013 successful tour of Australia. The 38-year-old made his Wales debut against Argentina in 2006 and the last of his Tests came nine years later at home to Ireland. “I’m sad to say my body has finally said enough is enough,” said Hibbard. “What a ride it’s been. I’ve been lucky enough to do everything I’ve wanted, and more, in this great game.”
