Bowler of the day Steve Magoffin, the 33-year-old Australian seamer, feared his career was over when Western Australia dropped him from their roster two years ago. Rescued by Queensland, he accepted an offer to return to county cricket with Sussex last season, took 7 for 34 on debut against Lancashire and went on to claim 57 Championship wickets. Now he has helped to burst Yorkshire's early optimism by completing a five-wicket haul at Headingley to clinch an innings victory for Sussex. Magoffin wrapped it up with the wicket of Gary Ballance, the last line of some limp resistance by Yorkshire, whose first innings of 96 was labelled "unacceptable" by coach Jason Gillespie. It is their first Championship defeat for 20 months.

Q. I am visiting a friend in Adelaide in February 2014. I have booked the outbound flight to Sydney in business class with BA using all of my Avios frequent-flyer points. My friend is meeting me in Sydney for a couple of nights before we fly on to Adelaide. I have yet to book my return. However I have had a quick look and Malaysia and Singapore Airlines from Adelaide to Heathrow look to be my best option. These both have stopovers in Asia which is fine with me. Any advice would be welcome. Gary Crump, Evesham

Injuries are hitting Irish rugby thick and fast, but unlike the blow to Gordon D'Arcy, who joined the list of Six Nations absentees on Friday, the damage to London Irish yesterday mostly involved pride. For the moment. The 40-16 defeat by Bath left them scrapping with London Welsh and Sale – who meet today – to avoid finishing bottom of the Aviva Premiership.
