points this afternoon. warren gatland's side were given a bit of a scare by the home side before emerging 18—11 winners at murrayfield — stretching their record winning run to 13. our correspondent joe wilson was there. in edinburgh's scenic centre, spring's delicate colours unfold. wales. everywhere was wales. at murrayfield, watch josh wales. everywhere was wales. at murrayfield, watchjosh adams‘s moves out on the wing. both in his hands, drinking and sprinting his way to the line. —— jinking and sprinting. scotland's own attacking spirit running to the welsh defence, fiercely drilled and disciplined, well scotla nd fiercely drilled and disciplined, well scotland hope to succeed, wales expected to. that's what confidence does for a team. jonathan davies too strong here in wales led by nine points at half—time. there was only
one way scotland could succeed. if they couldn't go through wales they would have to go around. the ball slipped inside and then out to the wing. slipped inside and then out to the by slipped inside and then out to the wing. by modern standards, darcy graham'sa wing. by modern standards, darcy gra ham's a belly wing. by modern standards, darcy graham's a belly dancer between giants, but his try finally brought murrayfield its feet. —— a ballet dancer. the gap closed but the gap remained. this welsh penaltyjust settle the final score, 18—11. well, it was a huge physical effort by scotla nd it was a huge physical effort by scotland in the second half but ultimately they came up against a tea m ultimately they came up against a team which has forgotten how to lose! they celebrated in edinburgh like they do everywhere. the feeling from the team is amazing at the moment. we are enjoying each other‘s company, working hard for each other, and next week is going to be really
exciting, amazing for us in all of our careers. it doesn't come along very often so we will look forward to it. we will enjoy this one and look forward to next week coming up. does that hurt? not too bad! a couple of stitches and it should be all right. we have high expectations of ourselves and we hate losing at home. it's disappointing. but we use these experiences to learn and get better and we have got one game left, we will do everything we can. we are looking forward to twickenham next week. we will give it the best we can. at twickenham, england ensured they‘ re still in the running for the title. they scored eight tries to comfortably beat italy at twickenham. a dominant performance saw them win 57—14 to claim another bonus point win — keeping them very much still in with a chance in this six nations. patrick gearey was watching. 20 times italy have stood and poured their hearts out,
20 times have had it broken. their losing run is a six nations record in england were the last team they wanted to face. they've lost to them every time they played them in the competition. but in theirfour years but in their four years of six nations defeats there have been moments, like this one. they were level for just over a moments, like this one. they were level forjust over a minute. then elliot daly raced into the fast lane and spotted jonny may about to overtake. manu tuilangi hadn't managed one in five years for england. for all the problems with his body and behaviour he still had this in him. try based on opportunity but also in theory, eddiejones try based on opportunity but also in theory, eddie jones had try based on opportunity but also in theory, eddiejones had to figure that the italy would not be able to live with manu tuilangi's power. for
italy, the manu tuilangi agony went on, he was popping up all over the place. he briefly went to the margin, no stopping him from there. in slowing to a stroll, in the know must stumble, it got a second try. butjohn is an dan robson extended it. once converted england had 50 and still a chance at the championship. as for italy, welcome england ‘s fan will try rather summed things up. there's always something in the way of progress in this case joe something in the way of progress in this casejoe launchbury something in the way of progress in this case joe launchbury and something in the way of progress in this casejoe launchbury and brad shields again. this level, heart only gets you so far. there are a difficult side and if you look at the scorecards of the six nations, very rarely there are blow outs like that. we are pleased at the way we stuck at it. we were not at our best and we could have been more dominant but i am pleased with the players and how they responded today.
england's women whitewashed italy by 55—0 in exeter. they scored nine tries in all including two from jess breach. they'll win the grand slam if they beat scotland at twickenham next weekend. there's one match taking place right now with ireland taking on france. the irish are fighting back thanks to this try from claire molloy. it's currently france who lead by 11! points to 12 with around half an hour played. _by —— byi9 —— by 19 points to 12. still to come on sportsday... we hear from one of the bbc‘s young reporters on how she's been inspiring others like her... everything i play for, —— team i played for, every school i went to, there was never another muslim girl, it was like i was the only one. more to come from her a little later in the programme.
premier league leaders manchester city are four points clear in the title race tonight. after a 3—1 win over watford. raheem sterling with a hat trick, which leaves liverpool having to play catch up ahead of their game tomorrow. james burford reports. this is the half—time whistle, with city struggling, booing in the etta head, not a usual occurrence but neither was this. barely seconds after the restart, one of the most bizarre goals you're likely to see. people ricocheted off raheem sterling only to be ruled offside, but after a few minutes of the referee chatting with his assistant, it was awarded, to no small amount of controversy. the england man tried only in goals this season, his value skyrocketing. atjust 2a tried only in goals this season, his value skyrocketing. at just 2a years old, he's not even at the peak of his powers and yet this is his 20th goal of the campaign. his manager is absolutely delighted but won't have been happy with this. just 2! seconds after coming onto the pitch
asa seconds after coming onto the pitch as a substitute, gerard deulofeu took his first touch, not a bad one by any means but the ball very much belonged to this man. quite some second—half. no booing at city go four points clear. —— and city go four points clear. —— and city go four points clear. —— and city go four points clear. some huge results at the bottom of the table — and this one will have a bearing towards the top as well. tottenham losing two one to southampton despite taking the lead and that means manchester united could draw level if they beat arsenal tomorrow. james ward prowse with a stunning free kick to win it, a huge win for ralph hassenhuttel in tehir bid to avoid relegation. ——in their bid to avoid relegation. they were always winning and so it's only a step. but a big one, for sure, because against tottenham at home you cannot expect to win the game but it was a big win for us and, you know, three
weeks break now. it's a completely different feeling if you're above the line or under the line. but we know, and i said to my team in the dressing room, that we will rest but also concentrate working for the last games because we need more wins. we didn't take seriously the second half. i don't want to be too much critical because i think overall we we re critical because i think overall we were good but when you lose a game, a game that was after 45 minutes under control, creating a lot of chances and should be three or 4—0, finishing the game to — one down, it's so difficult to accept. —— + — one down. we need to be critical with ourselves. that is important. there are in the middle of a sticky patch domestically.
newcastle pulled further away from the drop zone, but they had to do it the hard way. they were 2—0 down against everton but a mistake from england goalkeeper jordan pickford allowed ayoze perez to score the first of two goals which saw them win it 3—2. both coming in the space of four minutes. a brilliant way for new cuts on theirfans to a brilliant way for new cuts on their fans to witness any tears marking his third anniversary in charge of the club. —— benitez. we had an excellent ball in the middle, the first and the second ball, winning more second balls. and created more attacks. in the end, the players, have to give them credit, because they were pushing and pushing, and we have to believe and be confident that we can do it.
five players, the player who was clearly offside and touch the ball, and it's really difficult for us. of course, it's difficult to understand when the deciding when the opposite way. clearly disappointed with the performance of the referee, you can see in remonstrating with him there at the end of the match. this epic win againfor cardiff at the end of the match. this epic win again for cardiff city. —— a big win. they remain in the bottom three but they secured an important win at home to west ham. junior hoilett and victor camarasa with the goals. this will prove a big boost following reports of dressing room unrest this week. they are edging closer to the teams above. the spirit and they were great, i thought we played some good stuff today, we could have had three or four goals to date up it was as good
as game as we could have played against a good side. we are pleased to get a clean sheet, our eighth this season, i think it's pretty good going, really. we will have a look at how it effects them at the bottom in a moment. now to one of the premier league's big rivalries. brighton against crystal palace played out in the early kick off — and the former secured the bragging rights and a vital three points to draw level with their rivals. 2—1 it finished. glenn murray also on the scoresheet, disappointment for roy hodgson, but have a look at a brilliant winner from anthony knockaert. some question whether the 50 miles that separate these two clubs can really be called a derby, but whatever you call it, there's an undeniable rivalry. especially when you're bidding for premier league survival. three points separated the seagulls from the eagles and tension was spilling onto the pitch early on. brighton had the chance to move level on points with their rivals and it seems the fates were in their favour.
injury the former palace player was called up, and what a chance! what a way to mark your hundredth league goal. palace also had their share of luck, scott dann getting away from this. a needless foul after the break, allowing palace to come back into the game. but then this left foot curl, a piece of art from anthony knockaert sealing a huge three points in the fight against relegation. albion fans will be dancing all the way down the m23. there was a first win for brendan rodgers as leicester manager — they beat fulham 3—1. jamie vardy with two goals — managerless fulham surely on tehir way back to teh championship. ——way back to the championship. they've been brilliant since i've arrived here, and like i say, it's
nice to start with a win. and of course, they received me very well. at what was important was their support for the team. i think they've seen the intent of what we've tried to do and that connection between them and the players was going to be very important, so a very good win for us. i know it's been a difficult place at home this season. he will be pleased to get that first win under his belt since taking on fulham after the sacking of claude puel. this is the bottom of the table tonight. and huddersfield lost to bournemouth today — they remain bottom — 16 points from safety. relegation all but certain. as it is, you think, for fulham. but look how tight it is. six teams separated by six points. at the top, city have extended their lead
following that 3—1 win over watford. the ripple of course play burnley tomorrow. —— liverpool. united could pull level with spurs if they win at arsenal tomorrow. chelsea play wolves. that looks like a big game, as well. and some breaking news from the championship, at sacking at west brom. knee is just knee isjust emerging in knee is just emerging in the knee isjust emerging in the bus hour. —— news just knee isjust emerging in the bus hour. —— newsjust emerging in the last hour. darren moore has been sacked as head coach of west brom. they drew 1—1 with ipswich today and are fourth in the championship table but have just won four of their last 12 league games. in the last half hour the club's chief executive markjenkins said in a statement that it was "an enormously difficult decision" but that the club had "made it clear from the outset that everything this season was geared to making as swift a return to the premier league as possible.
leeds are back up to second. patrick bamford with the only goal of the game against bristol city. sheffield united were briefly second after beating rotherham in the day's early kick off. fifth placed middlesbrough will be disappointed to lose at home to brentford. all the football league results are on the bbc sport website and app. plus more on blackpool. after a four year boycott, lasting more than 200 games, fifteen thousand blackpool fans flocked back to bloomfield road today to mark the end of the controversial oyston family's involvment with the club. they've barely had 5,000 at home matches as part of a mass protest at the way the club was being run. on the verge of the league i play offs they drew 2—2 with southend thanks to a last—minute equaliser. ian haslam was there.
what a day this is here at black fulham football club. a huge day, many thousands of supporters who have stayed away for years in protest at the club'sowner. —— blackpool football club. but the owners have been removed by the high court over unpaid debts meaning many fa ns court over unpaid debts meaning many fans decided to return. there used to seeing 3—4000 of the past number of right years, today is a sell—out, around 16,000 here at bloomfield road. when you've literally suffered for something, campaign, worked so hard, to finally get a result and to have, for me, it's the people. it's all these blackpool fans who have come together, acted together, campaigned together and now we're going back to our club, going home and it's wonderful. there you have it. the result today in this league 1 match is almost irrelevant. this is about fans returning to the club, supporter power winning the day and they're hoping it's a bright future
ahead here. a monumental day at bloomfield road after those years of struggle the fa ns after those years of struggle the fans have been through. back to the scottish premiership. celtic were held to a goal—less draw by aberdeen in the scottish premiership this afternoon. good wins today too for livingston, mortherwell and hearts. kate cross bowled a magnificent final over to lead england to a thrilling one—run win over india in the third twenty20. with india needing three to win, cross bowled three balls without conceding any runs, removed bharati fulmali and anuja patil, then conceded only one run from the final ball. henry moeran has been following the action in guwahati. england's tour of india concluded with the most exciting match of the six we have seen, having lost the od! series 2—1, they made it a clean sweep in the t20 with a last overthrow there, —— lost over thriller. india requiring just three runs to win, kate cross andy dibble
to win, ——kate cross having not played a t20 before the series for four years. and she won that game byjust one run. extraordinary scenes in guwahati in front of a crowd approaching 10,000 and for england it's a big win to ensure that clean sweep. obviously when you got a low total to defend you're probably going to bea to defend you're probably going to be a you quickly or a villain quickly, so it's nice to be on the better end of that. —— he hero or villain. i know that i've been hitting a hard—line game and in the previous games as well and that had been working successfully for me so me and had i had had a few chats and be ankle got it right this time. —— me and heather. so england headed to sri lanka having won more matches than they lost on their tour of india, and certainly they will be seen as a success. a disappointing start but then they fought back with four successive victories and there is no reason to think that run won't continue against a sri lankan side who are certainly inferior to the team they played in india. what a way to bow out, with that
impressive final over. let's take a look at some of the other stories around today. spain's maverick vinales snatched pole position on his yamaha for the qatar motogp. he pushed andrea dovizioso and world champion marc marquez into second and third place for tomorrow's race. great britain finished a disappointing seventh in the elite mixed relay at the world triathlon series in abu dhabi. the team consisted of alex yee, vicky holland, thomas bishop, and non stanford. australia came first, followed by the united states and new zealand. there was big controversy at sandown today. after this photo finish in the 1.50, the wrong winner was announced. officials gave the victory to 12 to 1 shot one for rosie — seen here on the far end — when it was infact number 5 third wind who was the winner. it emerged that the photo was taken from the wrong finish line. it was later corrected but not before many bookies had already paid out.
two finish lines? confusing for everyone! you would think they would have set it up in the right place. major error. in rugby league's super league, salford red devils thumped catalans dragons 46—0 in perpignan. salford ran in eight tries with two each for george griffinm ——each for george griffin and jake bibby as the dragons suffered a huge rout in their own back yard. salford are fourth in the table, with the french side in 8th place. in rugby union's premiership bottom side newcastle gave their hopes of avoiding relegation a huge boost after overcoming wasps 20—19 earlier. league leaders exeter beat worcester and bristol came from behind to seal a stunning victory against northampton who finished the game with 11 men. very tight scores on those three matches. this week on the bbc, we've been hearing from our young reporters. today it's the turn of salma. she plays for brentford women's fc, and wants to inspire young girls like her, to get into sport. this is her story.
when i was growing up, watching the tv and watching football games, i would never see anyone that was like me. i wanted to change that. i wanted to be that person. i'm a 16—year—old black, muslim female footballer. and ifelt like my story needed to be heard. if you ask anyone, what would you imagine a muslim girl doing, the last thing that they would say is football or any sports in general. people kind of view us in a specific way. it's like, ok, you're a muslim girl, you cover up and you should just focus on your studies, just keep your head down, keep a low profile and just do your own thing. every team i played for, or every school that i went to, there was never a muslim girl that played with me. it was like i was the only one.
"ninja, terrorist, you should be in the kitchen, you shouldn't be "on the football pitch, sports isn't for you." it's quite funny to me, like, i would just walk away and laugh. but on days where i'm not in the mood, it would just be really annoying. it's like a voice that you just keep hearing in the back of your head. it's... yeah. when i play football, ifeel free. i feel like every weight on my shoulder is lifted. it's like, no matter how many problems i have going on at the time, none of it matters when i'm playing. what i would say to any young muslim girl out there is that people's opinion should never have power over you. at the end of the day, if you feel like you want to do something and you're passionate
enough, you'll find a way. it's about who you are. and how strong you can be. great to hear from great to hearfrom her there, and sharing her story in that way, so inspiring. before we go, the saying goes "look before you leap"... well, perhaps brazilian striker anderson lopes should have paid a little more heed to that. lopes celebrated his second goal for consadole sapporo in thej league by excitedlyjumping over the barricade, only to realise too late it was a rather steep drop in height. a little further, he was expecting. i don't think he realised what he was doing, he thought he would land on solid ground and then... he won over next time! but it didn't cause many problems, he scored two more goals. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening.
goodbye. good evening. a blustery saturday but sunny spells and scattered showers for most of us. you can see from the satellite picture — best of the breaks were in sheltered eastern areas, more showers further west. by the end of the afternoon, the cloud and rain gathers into the southwest. that is a frontal system that will move through bringing some rain overnight tonight. behind it, we have got this little fellow here could cause issues. as it bumps into cold air it could bring some snow showers for tomorrow. for the next few hours, it will turn increasingly wet and windy. the rain pushing its way steadily northwards, perhaps grinding to a halt across northern england and north wales. far north under clearer skies, temperatures falling away. the blues tones denoting temperatures below freezing, maybe as low as —4 degrees and sheltered rural areas. that is important. that cold air is going to stay into scotland. first thing on sunday morning,
we have got this range and a little bit of wet snow across the pennines, slipping its way steadily south and east. at the same time the next frontal system will bump into the cold air, and we could see some wintry showers. it will be a blustery start to the day. it is going to be snow falling to higher ground. we could see accumulation of a few centimetres. even at lower levels, there will be some slushy deposits, coupled with some pretty gusty winds at times. 40,50 mph plus. it isn't going to be very pleasant out there. there will be some showers and yes, a little bit of wintryness mixed in there cost northwest england and wales. for england and wales it will be a bright and sunny afternoon. for many, we keep the rest of a few wintry showers with slushy deposits threatening the further north and west, maybe even the odd rumble of thunder and some hail mixed in there as well. cold with the cloud, wind, rain and showers around 5 degrees at the very best. a little milder further south with maximum of 11. into monday, a brief ridge of high pressure will quiet things down for a time. not for long. make the most of it on monday.
it looks likely to be a relatively quiet start to our new working week. then another significant area of low pressure looks likely to threaten from the west. it is going to bring yet more wet and windy weather, with a spell of gales as well for a time. this may well develop into a named storm. into next week, it looks likely to stay pretty unsettled. there will be some rain and gales but also a little bit of sun at times.
