Achievement Wales

The paper is reporting Wales and Cardiff Blues winger Alex Cuthbert has agreed a deal to join the Aviva Premiership champions in the summer. Cuthbert,27, announced at the start of the season he would be leaving the PRO14 club at the end of the season with a lucrative move to the French Top 14 expected. But it is now believed the winger has signed a two-year deal with the Chiefs. The big issue for Cuthbert is he only has 47 Wales cap meaning a move would make him eligible to play for his country, however injury has seen him move down the pecking order for Wales recently. King, will start with Neath in June in a playing role that will also see him help out with the coaching. Neath hope the centre, who has just one cap for New Zealand, will play an important role in developing some of their younger players.

The Beeb were rocked last March when pay TV channel Premier Sports outbid them to spell the end of an era of free-to-air coverage of the competition in Wales. It left a gaping hole in BBC Wales’ sports output, but the corporation has decided to back the semi-professional tier by committing to a deal to screen its games for the season on BBC Two Wales. How Premiership matches will be received by viewers used to watching the full-time professional action of the PRO14 remains to be seen.

But in a press release announcing the coverage BBC Wales did their best to trumpet the prospect, labelling the coming season ‘the most exciting yet’ and emphasising the ‘historic rivalries’ and ‘local derbies’ that will be on offer. There was also the promise of ‘every fixture being meaningful and keenly fought’. Merthyr captain Craig Locke celebrates with his team after winning the Principality Premiership last season It’s understood that with no other rugby to show, BBC Wales bosses came to the conclusion that they may as well give the Premiership a go, though there remains scepticism within Broadcasting House about its appeal.

Who anchors the coverage and whether the BBC will continue to use pundits of the stature of Jonathan Davies and Martyn Williams to analyse action with a far lower profile, has yet to be finalised. Welsh Rugby Union head of performance, Geraint John, said: Like us on Facebook.

North Carolina teen’s family: Relatives and friends of Lennon Lacy, 17, have rejected a medical examiner’s report that his August death was a suicide. Instead, they suspect the high school football player was the victim of lynching prompted by his love life. Advertisement “Someone killed him ’cause he was dating an older white woman,” Justin Jones, 17, a friend of Lacy. The girlfriend, Michelle Brimhall, has gone into hiding since Lacy’s death.

Local police have said they are still investigating Lacy’s death despite the coroner ruling it a suicide. It was unclear if investigators interviewed Brimhall before she went into hiding. The FBI announced on Friday that it was opening an investigation into Lacy’s death after questions were raised by his mother and the North Carolina branch of the NAACP, which hired an independent pathologist to look into the death.

She noted that Lennon was 5-foot-9 and that the cross beam the noose was attached to was 90 inches off the ground, too high for the teen to reach on his own. While Brimhall is not considered a suspect in the case, loved ones of Lacy believe she knows what really happened. Brimhall’s parents told The News they haven’t heard from her in three weeks and confirmed she’s addicted to drugs.

A conservative North Dakota lawmaker has come out of the closet after lewd texts he sent on a gay dating site were made public this week. The randy red-state Republican, Rep. Randy Boehning, was outed Monday, more than a month after the Roughrider State legislator sent an unsolicited picture of his penis and several other messages to year-old Bismarck resident Dustin Smith back on March 12 on the gay dating site Grindr, according to multiple reports. Advertisement Boehning, a year veteran of North Dakota’s state assembly who has routinely voted against gay rights legislation, charged that the leaked messages were sent to media outlets in retaliation for his vote against Senate Bill , which would have added sexual orientation to the state’s anti-discrimination law.

For the third time since , the bill was voted down by conservative North Dakota lawmakers, including Boehning. But Smith, who first leaked the Grindr messages to The Forum , claims he simply wanted to reveal Boehning’s hypocrisy. Boehning, 52 and unmarried, has been an active member of the site and conducted his affairs under the profile name “Top Man!

Hit me up boys,” Boehning’s Grindr bio reads. Boehning, a staunch conservative, insistently refused to comment on the allegations for two weeks, but this week finally came forward to admit that he had been using the platform to chat with other men and that he was gay, according to The Forum. It’s a gay chat site. It’s not the first thing you do on that site. That’s what we do, exchange pics on the site.
