Wolves warned by RFL

Rugby League

Warrington have been given a formal warning by the Rugby Football League about the behaviour of their fans during the Cheshire derby at Widnes over Easter.

Play was stopped and the referee took both teams off the pitch after a smoke canister was thrown onto the field of play in the early stages of the match on 2 April.

An RFL investigation discovered that Wolves fans also threw coins and bottles onto the playing surface.

"The club were reminded of their responsibility to make best efforts to ensure there are no further incidents at future matches," read an RFL statement.

Lille ordered to pay up


Lille have been ordered to pay Genk 300,000 euros for the 2010 transfer of Divock Origi.

The Belgium striker, now with Liverpool, began his career at Genk before leaving them at the age of 15 to sign youth terms with Ligue 1 side Lille.

Genk appealed to FIFA's dispute resolution chamber seeking a 'training compensation' fee but were denied as they had not offered a contract to Origi before his departure.

However, the club has now successfully argued to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) that they could not offer Origi a contract under Belgian law because he was under the age of 16 at the time.

Van Gaal was critical of the programme for United's pre-season tour of the United States last summer, believing the team spent too much time crossing time zones.

This summer they have scaled back the travelling during their four matches in the International Champions Cup in the USA.

Van Gaal said: "The problem was when we went to America last year we didn't have so many times to train because we had to fly and travel a lot. Therefore it was not good."

Former world champion hurdler Colin Jackson says Mo Farah should do what he thinks is right, when it comes to his relationship with coach Alberto Salazar.

Farah pulled out of a meeting in Birmingham after a BBC documentary alleged that Salazar had practiced doping techniques with other athletes. Salazar denies the allegations.

"Mo, get all the information you possibly can and do ultimately what's best for you, because your athletics career belongs to you," said Jackson. "And if you're happy with your circumstance then you keep with it; if you're unhappy and unsure it's going to have a real knock-on effect in your mind."

Ageas Bowl wants 2022 Ashes Test


Michael Vaughan tweet
Michael Vaughan

Hampshire chairman Rod Bransgrove

hopes the Ageas Bowl's growing reputation for hosting international matches will secure an Ashes Test in 2022.

The England and Wales Cricket Board has invited tenders for the allocation of major matches between 2020 and 2023, and the Ageas Bowl is the only Test ground in the country not to have staged an Ashes match.

"I believe the new administration at the ECB will be very fair and indiscriminate in the way they select international grounds in the future," said Bransgrove.

Croatia investigated over 'swastika'


Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) after a swastika was apparently scrawled on the pitch in Split during Croatia's 1-1 Euro 2016 qualifying draw with Italy.

Uefa had ordered Friday's match to be played behind closed doors as punishment for fan violence and racist incidents when Croatia played Norway earlier in the qualifying campaign.

A swastika, however, appeared to be visible on the pitch at the ground, which is the home of Croatian top-flight side Hajduk Split, and Uefa said they would decided whether to take action for "racist behaviour" by 16 July.

Linley makes mark for Sussex

Durham 269-8 v Sussex

BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson

at Arundel:

"On his first day on loan from Surrey, Tim Linley has taken five wickets in an innings for Sussex.

"It was only the sixth five-for of his career and he completed it with the wickets of Ryan Pringle and Paul Coughlin in the space of two balls during the afternoon.

"But 60 not out from Gordon Muchall has helped Durham to their first batting bonus point since 3 May."

Essex batsmen build on lead

Derbyshire 148, Essex 318-4

BBC Essex's Paul Newton

at Chelmsford:

"Essex continued to press home their advantage in the afternoon session, despite Derbyshire making breakthroughs when Essex's top four were all seemingly set to post big scores.

"Tom Westley made a scratchy 43 before the worthy Wayne White squeezed an in-ducker between bat and pad and Ravi Bopara posted a 104-ball 50 with a sumptuous straight drive for four but White quickly had his revenge thanks to a fine second slip catch by Wes Durston.

"But the visitors have yet to take two wickets in quick succession and Jesse Ryder and Ryan ten Doeschate have played some handsome shots in their unbroken 31 run partnership at tea."

Former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro will undergo wrist surgery for a third time next week.

The Argentine, 26, has played just four times this year - after completing only 10 matches in 2014 - as he has struggled with his left wrist.

The 2009 US Open champion played three matches in Sydney at the start of the year and then attempted another comeback in March, losing his first-round match in Miami.

"After playing in Miami my sensations were horrible," said the former world number four. "I didn't want to fight against tennis. I didn't want to hate this sport."

Notts teen Carter takes seven

Nottinghamshire 410, Somerset 200

BBC Somerset's Stephen Lamb

at Taunton:

"A sensational return of 7-56 on debut for off spinner Matthew Carter put Nottinghamshire firmly in charge on day two of their County Championship match against Somerset at Taunton.

"Only Tom Abell, who carried his bat through the Somerset innings for 76, and James Hildreth, who in making 41 passed 1,000 first class runs for the season, provided any firm resistance as the hosts were bowled out for just 200, 210 runs short of the Notts total.

"There were two wickets for Luke Wood and one for Jake Ball in a session that saw the loss of eight Somerset wickets, before Nottinghamshire elected not to enforce the follow-on."

Graeme McDowell has a word of advice for any golfers at Chambers Bay - beware of the deep bunkers.

The venue will host this year's US Open, which starts on Thursday, and has a particularly perilous bunker on the 18th hole.

It will be the first time a major has been played at the course near Seattle, and views on the new venue appear mixed.

McDowell, who won in 2010, has given us his thoughts on the architecture.
