Ollie 4 Gloucester 3
I went to the game on Saturday with very mixed feelings about what type of performance I might witness. Would it be the total capitulation I had previously seen at home, as in the Sale or Bath games? Or the brave, never give up, inventive, defend with your lives display, that I had seen on my screen in the previous two away games, as when Irish beat Northampton and Harlequins?

Next Match: Shrewsbury Town (A)
Tranmere are back in action tonight as they make the relatively short trip to Shropshire to face Shrewsbury Town in Skybet League Two....

Unbeaten run to six as impressive Fernandes off the mark
Manchester United made it six games unbeaten with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday, as Bruno Fernandes scored his first goal for the club from the penalty spot.

Wolves v Norwich City: Match Thread 23.2.2020
Here we go again, back at Molineux again this afternoon when we welcome Norwich City, currently adrift at the bottom of the league by 6 points, seven points from safety. This comes right off the back of Thursday night, the magnificent Europa league night in WV1, when we placed ourselves in such a great position ahead of the second leg versus Espanyol. 4-0 the score, 3 goals of very high quality, and a thoroughly deserved victory and fine team performance. Wolves will take a massive amount of confidence away, there’s no doubt, however this is the moment to cement European form into Premier League wins. Our last five league matches read W1 D3 L1 and whilst the only defeat was a great performance against Liverpool, it is goals we need …. Just like we manage in Europe.

Burnley 3 Bournemouth 0
It was a VAR day at Turf Moor – Vydra and Rodriguez, with a bit of boy wonder Dwight McNeil thrown in!

Just back - we very much got what we deserved - and so did Wasps who played some delightful rugby; at pace, created many chances and exploited our mistakes. Gopperth and Umaga controlled the game superbly. The opposite of the Sale performance from us, though perhaps good in the long run for we fans to remind us of what a drubbing feels like! We shouldn't expect miracles from our heavily depleted and undermined squad too often.

ROKiT Williams Barcelona Test 21:02:2020 Day Three
In the first week of testing the final day would see the ROKiT Williams Team rookie driver Nicholas Latifi carry out the driving duties. But it was a day that did not entirely go to plan with Nicholas suffering an issue with his power unit that would see the team forced to carry out an engine change thus only seeing Nicholas return late in the day limiting his track time over the day. Despite this the team would allow Nicholas to complete a series of practice pit stops in preparation for the first race in Melbourne. The team will return to Barcelona next week for a further three days of testing.

Newastle Falcons v London Scottish - Preview
Newcastle Falcons welcome London Scottish to Kingston Park this Saturday 22nd in the knock-out stages of the Championship Cup. London Scottish unfortunately have not won a game this year 2020. So this game might be their last chance for glory.  Falcons played Scottish in October at the Athletic Ground and it was a very tight affair on the day 13-17, so they are very capable of giving Falcons a ‘run for their money’!  

ROKiT Williams Barcelona Test 20:02:2020 Day Two
The ROKiT Williams Team would complete the second day of their 2020 pre-season testing at the Barcelona circuit. This day would see George Russell carry out the driving duties with the morning focusing on aero assessments with the FW43 running with rakes for quite a large part of the morning session. The afternoon session would see George complete several runs evaluating new tyres. The team tried a range of things during the day some of which according to George were not that positive but he added that this is what winter testing is all about.

India Start Next Phase of Test Championship as Favorites
India are clear favorites as they take on New Zealand in the first Test at the Basin Reserve.  However the rumor is that the wicket will be a flattie, and will be hard work for the bowling units of both teams.  What a difference from the bouncy green "Wonderbra" wickets that New Zealand used to routinely prepare for Indian Tests in the past.  The quality of the Indian quicks makes that a very risky proposition and so the Home board has understandably gone away for those type of wickets...

Having wobbled to a win over Worcester Warriors, Bath’s next Premiership quest is to quell Quins on Saturday. At their best, Quins can produce a game as colourful as their shirts, but this season’s performances and results have been as chequered as the pattern on those same shirts. They lie 7th in the table having won 4 of their 10 Premiership games to date, most recently subsiding at home against a revitalised London Irish. So can Bath expect victory or does the wily Harlequin have a winning trick up his sleeve?  

ROKiT Williams Barcelona Test 19:02:2020 Day One
The ROKiT Williams Team would complete the first day of their 2020 pre-season testing with George Russell and Nicholas Latifi sharing the driving duties. In what was a packed testing programme for the Williams Team they would come away pleased with the promising start that had been made in comparison to the dramas of 2019. It was very much a case of all the hard work that had gone into the preparations for testing producing some promising results. Both George and Nicholas would come away from the day satisfied that the FW43 was a step forward over last years car.

Wolves v Espanyol: Match Thread KO 8pm 20.2.2020
When we managed our brilliant qualification into the Europa League, I’m sure the enormity of the qualification rounds and group stages had maybe been overlooked, at least for a few of us? Well, it did me. But here we are in late February and we’re still in it, the proper knock outs start here. Trips to Northern Ireland, Armenia, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Turkey have now culminated in our next Spanish opponents, Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona, Espanyol for short! Both Wolves and Espanyol started off in the same second qualifying round of the competition, however, have since faired very differently in their respective leagues. Espanyol, as it has been well documented, have actually got off to one of their worst league starts in years, P24 W 4 D L 13 Pts 19, nevertheless don’t necessarily be sucked in by that. This is because their 6 league matches in 2020 have amassed 9 of those points with 2 wins, 3 draws (one v the other Barcelona team) and 1 loss. Essentially their current form, combined with our excellent ability to draw matches and perhaps not convert chances makes this fixture anything but a foregone conclusion. Naturally Nuno and the lads won’t be resting on their laurels, but this will be a much sterner test that a cursory glance at stats might first suggest. Indeed, Albelardo, the Espanyol manager has promised today that they are not just in Wolverhampton ‘for sightseeing or as tourists’, though hat’s off that he’s heard of some of our brilliant local attractions  e.g. Dudley Castle, Black Country Museum, Wightwick manor, Bantock Park etc. Well done sir!

ROKiT Williams unveils 2020 challenger FW43.
The ROKiT Williams team unveiled their 2020 challenger the FW43. The FW43 is an evolution of the FW42, with much of the development work carried out throughout 2019 feeding in to the design of this year’s car. Speaking ahead of the 2020 season, Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal, said: “This year marks a fresh start for the team. We have spent time addressing our areas of weakness and have ensured that we have the right people, structures, procedures and resource in place to deliver competitive race cars. We are all committed to re-building Williams and returning the team to competitiveness."

Streaky Competition
Time for another caption competition from when we clinched the Championship at The Oval.  

India U19 Reach World Cup Finals For Third Time in a Row
India U19s crossed swords (ok bats) with Pakistan U19s in the Semi-Finals of the U19 World Cup in South Africa, and the game which was billed as a clash of the titans ended up being a one-sided romp by the Indian side.  This was an even more emphatic win than the win India U19s handed out to the Pakistani boys two years ago.  The overall record of matches between India U19s and Pakistan U19s is 5-5... but India U19s have won the last 4 encounters, with ever more dominant margins.  This reflects the fortunes of cricket in the two countries.  In India it is a huge money spinner, and is played more and more professionally at every level.  In Pakistan it is still stuck in a time warp around the turn of the millenium.  This is mostly of its own making due to its insistence on exporting terrorism as a state sponsored activity against India, and the choking grip of an unholy kleptocratic military religious alliance.  Until the Pakistani people take control of their destiny and topple this unholy alliance.. this divergence in both real life and in cricket between the countires will likely continue to widen.

Williams working hard to ensure no repeats
The 2019 Formula One season was one beset with issues for the ROKiT Williams Team ranging from the late arrival of the FW42 to pre-season testing followed by a variety of issues relating to the performance of the car through to the availability of parts and the delays in seeing updates arrive for the car during the season. All these would see the Williams Team forced to closely re-examine the way that the team manages a wide variety of processes within the organisation to ensure that they are not repeated in their preparations for and during the 2020 season.

Russell uncertain over 2020 improvements
ROKiT Williams Racing 2020 lead driver George Russell has been the focus of much media comment regarding the teams prospects for the 2020 Formula One season. After a very difficult 2019 season Russell is still confident that the team will be able to produce a far more competitive 2020 car. But despite his positive comments there has also been an air of uncertainty as to how far these improvementrs will see the Williams Team move forward relative to their midfield competition.
