Calf injury ends Henson's Six Nations hopes

It would have been more in keeping with Gavin Henson's lovingly constructed public image if he had ruled himself out of the forthcoming Six Nations Championship by tripping over a loose sequin on the dance floor – or, more perilously still, being trodden on by Ann Widdecombe at the business end of an unusually passionate tango.

Sport on TV: Jonah has a whale of a time – shame about the rest of us

Chris Evans is no stranger to car crash television but Famous and Fearless (C4, Sunday to Friday) hasto go down as one of the slowest-motion wrecks of all time. The first episode was fully two hours long – 20 minutes tops would have sufficed – at the end of which Kelly Holmes performed a daredevil car-rolling stunt. She had just won a street luge contest despite being sent tumbling off the track halfway through. It was a case of the Dame meets the Dukes of Hazzard, and though she's no Daisy – more a shy, retiring violet – Evans was doing a fine impression of Boss Hogg, hogging the TV schedules for an entire week.

Anglesea steps in after Sale lose patience with unpopular Brewer

Mike Brewer's divisive reign as Sale's head coach came to an abrupt end yesterday when the Premiership strugglers sent the former All Black flanker on his way. Unpopular with senior players who resented his confrontational approach to man-management – Mahonri Schwalger, the captain of Samoa, left the club because he could not get along with the New Zealander, while the England outside-half Charlie Hodgson has been linked with a move to Northampton – Brewer lasted only eight months at Edgeley Park.
