    Two women's rugby entries in succession and Katy Mclean will miss the rest of England's 2017 Women's Six Nations campaign after being suspended for three weeks for her red card against Italy. 

    Mclean was sent off for a dangerous tackle in England's 29-15 win over Italy at Twickenham Stoop on Saturday and pleaded guilty to the offence which helped the disciplinary panel cut an initial six-week sanction in half.

  11. Guardiola aware of results business

    Manchester City v Huddersfield (Wednesday, 19:45 GMT)

    Pep Guardiola was pleased with his his first meeting with Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, but is aware he could suffer the same fate as predecessor Manuel Pellegrini if results go against his team.

    "I was really impressed that he knew absolutely everything about us. It was nice to meet him and spend a few hours together," said Guardiola, whose team host Huddersfield tomorrow in an FA Cup replay.

    "He is so happy because he sees all the games and he sees the effort, he demands it. He knows we give absolutely everything and we fight until the end. It was nice because it is important for us to know the president. I had good relations with almost all my owners in Barcelona and Bayern Munich. 

    "But they know, we know, all the managers and owners know, that we are here because of the results. If the results are not good we are going to be replaced by another. I replaced another manager."

  18. Wolves report £5.8m profit


    Wolves have reported a pre-tax profit of £5.8m for 2015-16, their final season under former owner Steve Morgan.

    But  the sale of Benik Afobe to Bournemouth  for a reported fee of £10m helped Wolves achieved a profit.

    The figures cover the year up to 31 May 2016, prior to  Morgan's sale of the club to the Fosun Group.
