Wales night of sentiment for Speed

Gary Speed's teenaged sons will lead out Wales in the company of Aaron Ramsey and Craig Bellamy tonight, after their grandfather has given the team-talk in the dressing room. For very obvious and understandable reasons this friendly will resemble no other as the country pays tribute to their deceased manager.

French clubs want Ireland game in June

The Six Nations Committee will today move to snuff out a French club rebellion and reschedule Saturday's postponed international between France and Ireland for 4 March. The French Rugby League has written to the committee, pointing out that 10 of the Top 14 weekends this season already clash with international fixtures and asking for the France-Ireland game to be held over until June, when the French club season ends. Understandably, the authorities are determined to avoid that scenario and will insist on the game taking place on the spare weekend between what would have been the third and fourth round of matches.
