Sport Wales: The TV programme

Savage savages Beeb commentator


Former Wales football star Robbie Savage is well known for his outspoken views, feisty tackles and flowing blonde locks but in recent years he's calmed down and changed his approach to the game and to life in general.

The Derby County midfield maestro might be in the latter days of his career but he's still loving his football under manager Nigel Clough and this week takes time out to chat with Ian Gwyn Hughes.


Once again Glamorgan have had a mixed summer. A miserable year in both the Twenty20 and the Pro40 competitions, however there were signs of improvement in the County Championship where they came 5th in Division Two. But there were just eight wins in all competitions.

The club have been criticised for concentrating more on the Ashes and the stadium than on squad improvement and player investment, but, it has to be said the Ashes were an incredible success.

Will they strengthen the side for 2010? Graham Thomas speaks to the key men at Glamorgan - manager Matthew Maynard, chief executive Paul Russell, captain Jamie Dalrymple and veteran player Robert Croft.

Deano on the defensive


Wrexham currently sit in the bottom half of the Blue Square Premier and the pressure is mounting on manager Dean Saunders to turn things round at the Racecourse.

The Sport Wales cameras were at both Wrexham games this week to see if they could start climbing the table.


David Probert is a champion apprentice jockey. The Welsh youngster has burst onto the racing scene this year and journalist's have already dubbed him "the next Frankie Dettori".

Lisa Rogers visits David at the Andrew Balding stables where he lives and trains.


Sport Wales followed three Welsh teams as they went to compete in the British Cheerleading Championships in Brighton.

Cheerleading is massive in America but here in Britain it is not recognised as a sport.

Graham Thomas has been looking at what it takes to become a sport and whether or not Cheerleading has a case.

Sport Wales is on Friday, 2 October at 2200 BST on BBC TWO Wales.
