Phil Danaher, the former Ireland captain, has been forced to retire from rugby union because of a serious thumb injury. He broke the thumb in October, had a pin inserted and then broke it again in his comeback match, prompting fears of permanent damage if he continued to play.

Edward Jones, the Welsh secretary, has joined Bridgend as their business manager.
