Six Nations: Wales close in on Grand Slam title with win over Scotland

(CNN)Wales survived a second half scare against Scotland to move to within one win away from the Six Nations title and Grand Slam glory. Scotland had started the match on the front foot as the home supporters inside Murrayfield Stadium made their voices heard, with Finn Russell kicking a straightforward penalty to open the scoring. But the dropped points seemed to shock Wales into action. Less than two minutes after the restart the visitors were in front thanks to a wonderful finish from Josh Adams. The winger expertly sidestepped the Scottish defense to continue his impressive form in this year’s championship. Despite Wales’ dominance, it was only able to score one more try before the half time whistle — with …

The famous racetrack has been closed after 21 horses died in the last few months. And questions have been raised about the racing industry across the US Santa Anita, sitting in the shadow of southern Californias San Gabriel mountains, has always been a special place for American racing fans.

But late on Tuesday night, figure markedly higher than in comparable periods over the last three years. The dirt track is blamed by many, and is undergoing extensive testing. Meanwhile, some Santa Anita trainers have claimed …

Are Liverpool wilting under pressure or renewing their early-season steel? | Andy Hunter

They have vacated the Premier League summit with a string of drab draws but a side who have not conceded in five games are hardly bottling it Jordan Henderson was unequivocal about how Liverpool would handle the slip from leaders to chasers in the title race. It will not change our mindset, the Liverpool captain said at Goodison Park where, on the streets outside, Evertonians rejoiced not in weekly appeal for calm and perspective around Liverpools prospects. Between two goalless draws away at Manchester United and Everton, decent and not unusual results in most seasons, stood the for any opponent with title pretensions on those raucous occasions. Almost 32% of Merseyside derbies end in draws 74 of 233 in total …

USA ends sevens title drought with win on Las Vegas soil

(CNN)What is it they say about home advantage? “There’s something about singing your national anthem at home,” Pinkelman told the Las Vegas Review Journal after lifting the trophy in front of an American crowd. “It’s so passionate. So emotional. It just gets everybody on the same page.” Captain Madison Hughes, Matai Leuta and Martin Iosefo also touched down for the Americans in what was a repeat of the 2010 Adelaide Sevens final — the occasion, nine years ago, of team USA’s first ever final. These days, though, reaching the latter stages of competitions is something of a regular occurrence; this Pinkelman-inspired triumph followed a similarly dominant display in the 2018 Las Vegas event. A year ago on March 4, the …

Elite sport is gradually waking up to widespread mental health issues | Sean Ingle

Administrators are arriving at a better understanding of the extent of anxiety and depression among top sportspeople and a finger is pointing at social media On Friday night the NBAs commissioner, Adam Silver, made a statement that was both shocking and profound: many of the leagues players, who have an average salary of $7m a year, were truly unhappy. He told the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference: The outside world sees the fame, the money, all the trappings that go with it, and they say: How is it possible they even can be complaining? But a lot of these young men are genuinely unhappy. As he warmed to the theme of his players mental health, Silver told his audience that …

Struggling football fans everywhere can take heart from Oystons ousting | Daniel Taylor

Blackpool supporters can finally talk of Owen Oyston in the past tense, which may just offer hope to those at Charlton, Coventry and elsewhere with inadequate or reviled owners That was a belter of a line from Lieven De Turck, representing the always bewildering Roland Duchtelet at a forum of Charlton Athletic supporters a few nights ago, when the man reputedly in charge of trying to sell the club floated what viewers of Blackadder might recognise as the cunning plan option. He didnt put it in those terms, of course, but equally Im not even sure Baldrick would have come up with something quite so brilliantly harebrained as standing up in front of a room of already exasperated football fans …

Will the US women’s soccer team win their battle for equal pay?

The world champions want to be paid the same salary as their male counterparts. Public pressure could help them achieve their aim In an escalation of ongoing disputes over gender discrimination between the US womens national team and US Soccer, the players have now sued their employer.

More addictive than cocaine, more fattening than bacon and its in everything you eat

Remember the big trans-fat scare of a few years back? You know, how McDonald’s was actively trying to poison us all with their anti-life French fries? “There’s trans-fat in those delicious fries! My God! Won’t somebody think of the children!” And yet nobody knew what the hell a trans-fat was. As if Mickey Dee’s would intentionally try and kill off its customers, right? Yes, but fast food is not healthy and kids and adults are getting fat because they eat it 12 times a week! Well, duh! The last time I checked, Ronald McDonald doesn’t come around to your house with a gun and force you to gnaw on fries and milk shakes. Pretty sure we have to go to …
