At the Women's World Cup, today, France play Norway, Nigeria play South Korea and Germany play Spain.


Ronan O'Gara is to take up the appointment of Head Coach with French Top 14 team La Rochell at the end of July.

He is to work alongside La Rochelle's Director of Rugby Jonno Gibbes.

O'Gara has spent the last two years with Crusaders in New Zealand, which followed a stint with Racing 92.

Warren Gatland has been confirmed to lead the British and Irish Lions for the third consecutive tour.

He'll step down as Wales coach after this year's World Cup and then begin preparing for the tour of South Africa in 2021.

Ireland have kept alive their slim hopes of a semi-final spot at the World Under-20 Championship.

Noel McNamara's side ran in five-tries in a 38-14 bonus point win over Italy in Santa Fe.

Ireland still need a huge win for South Africa over New Zealand this evening to secure a semi final berth as best runners-up.

Today’s racing is in Punchestown from 5.40.
