Weds PM Update: One Scotland Change & Star Mare Vroom Vroom Mag Retired

: 03/07/2018 - 17:16

Scotland have made one change for the Saturday's Six Nations match against Ireland.

Injured Glasgow wing Tommy Seymour drops out after playing in the win over England - with Edinburgh's Blair Kinghorn making his first start.

Fraser Brown is among the substitutes after recovering full fitness.

Scotland won last year at Murrayfield.

Wales head-coach Warren Gatland has made 10 changes from the side that lost to Ireland ahead of Sunday's Six Nations match against Italy in Cardiff.

Taulupe Faletau will skipper the side while Scarlets flanker James Davies will make his Test debut.

George North is included.

The IRFU is to present over 100 former women's players with international caps.

Players who represented Ireland before the 2006 merger of the IWRFU and the IRFU had until now gone without formal recognition of their Ireland appearances.

Irish Rugby will present caps to players who lined out for Ireland between 1993 and 2006 at the Ireland - Scotland team dinner on Sunday.

The Ireland women's side to play Scotland shows two changes from the one that beat Wales a fortnight ago.

Hooker Cliodhna Moloney replaces Ciara O'Connor in the front row.

Hannah Tyrell replaces Claire McLaughlin on the wing.


Tottenham are without defensive pair Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier for tonight's Champions League last-16 second leg against Juventus at Wembley.

Belgian centre-half Alderweireld is still recovering from injury while full-back Aurier's suspended.

The game is in the balance after a 2-all draw in the first leg in Italy last month.

Spurs have already beaten holders Real Madrid in the competition this season and boss Mauricio Pochettino says results like that helped them earn the respect of Europe's elite clubs.


Manchester City should face no problems in reaching the Champions League quarter-finals tonight.

They're 4-nil up ahead of hosting Swiss side Basel.


West Ham have been fined 30-thousand pounds for multiple breaches of anti-doping rules.

The Premier League club accepted an F-A charge for failing to provide their "whereabouts" information three-times inside 12-months.

West Ham have put the breaches down to administrative oversights.

Wolves can extend re-open a six-point lead at the top of the Championship tonight.

They're away to Leeds, with kick-off at Elland Road at 7.45.

Top-class mare Vroum Vroum Mag has been retired from racing.

The nine-year-old had been in line for the OLBG Mares' Hurdle at Cheltenham next Tuesday - a race she won in 2016 and was second to Apple's Jade 12 months ago.

She has raced since last year’s Punchestown Festival where she disappointed.

Vroum Vroum Mag won her first 10 starts after joining Willie Mullins from France, culminating with wins in the Mares' Hurdle and the Punchestown Champion Hurdle two years ago.


Ruby Walsh will make his comeback from injury at Thurles tomorrow, after four months out with a broken leg.

He’ll have one ride on the card - partnering the Willie Mullins-trained Lareena in the maiden hurdle.

The champion jockey is also expected to be in the saddle at the  weekend as he warms up for Cheltenham next week.
