RUGBY UNION: Moseley’s British & Irish Cup campaign will be something of an old-boys reunion after they were drawn with Championship rivals London Scottish.
The Billesley Common outfit will play in Pool Six alongside the Exiles, Gala and Welsh Premiership side Llanelli in the much-maligned competition, which has undergone yet another revamp.
In addition to 12 teams being added, taking the total to 32, another format switch sees clubs now face each other home and away in the pool stages with only the eight pool winners qualifying for the knockout stages.
Although the fixtures have yet to be confirmed, what is known is that Kevin Maggs’s men will start at home to Llanelli at some stage between October 12-14.
A week later they travel to Scottish, where they could face former players, Andy Reay, Chevvy Pennycook, Paul Spivey and Colin Quigley, each of whom jumped ship at the end of last season.
The competition will now take place over nine rounds and will align with ERC weekends.
SWIMMING: Paralympic swimmer David Roberts is considering switching allegiance to Sweden for the 2016 Games after failing to overturn his non-selection for Team GB at the London edition.
The 11-time Paralympic gold medallist missed the first stage of trials in London and then failed to make the qualifying times in Sheffield in April.
The 32-year-old’s fiancee, who he will marry in December, is Swedish and he could move to the country to gain citizenship.
“If people here don’t think I’m good enough I’ll go somewhere where I am,” he said.
