hello and welcome to sportsday, i'm gavin ramjaun. the latest from the champions league coming up. first. perhaps not the best bit of news for wales boss warren gatland on his birthday yesterday, losing his backs coach over an alleged betting breach, ahead of the rugby world cup injapan. gatland has spoken today — and believes the setback of rob howley‘s departure won't derail the team's preparations, but admits they were all shocked at the news. our reporter tomos dafydd has the latest for us. backin back in training amid a scandal concerns one of their own. the man who has been at warren gatland's side throughout his 12 year reign is gone, rob howley is said to be devastated by the allegation, but the head coach insists it will not derail the team. you have to deal with adversity at times, you lose key players and how you respond to that and this has happened, and i
6:34 pm
must say, that the players in the last 2a hours have really stepped up and they have been incredibly responsible and resilient and sometimes that brings teams closer together. organisers say they fully support the welsh rugby union's proactive approach. it was the union that brought the matter to the attention of world rugby. the welsh rugby union were first informed of alleged breach of the rules a week ago, the day the players flew out to the far east. an integrity team from a better company had got in touch, seniorfigures from the a better company had got in touch, senior figures from the union flew out to japan and after a series of meetings on monday it was decided rob howley should be sent home. we we re rob howley should be sent home. we were probably best placed to come out to japan, were probably best placed to come out tojapan, and at were probably best placed to come out to japan, and at that point we also informed world rugby that there had been a potential breach, and that we would be coming out and you know seeking some face to facetime with rob to get his perspective on
6:35 pm
the situation. rob howley is now back home and faces a detailed investigation. if found guilty he could be banned for life from the sport. the players say they are disappointed, but must focus on the tasks ahead. we literally are drawing the line in the sand. we won't be able do anything about this now and the only thing we can control is what we build up for monday night, so i think that has been the main message from the management and players, is make sure you know you don't lose sight of what is important and at the minute, what is important and at the minute, what is important is monday night. howly‘s replacement arrives tomorrow. stevenjones has been briefed by team management on the way ahead. the welsh rugby union deny it has been an embarrassing #10ed deny it has been an embarrassing #ioed but with the integrity of game called into question it has been a bruising turbulent 2a hours for welsh rugby. let's turn our attention to the champions league now.
6:36 pm
could we have another night of drama ahead? both english sides lost their opening matches last night to european opposition, in somewhat controversial fashion. spurs and manchester city both play today. spurs already under way — we'll have more from watch this in real time, it looks like a penalty? the referee seemed to think so and pointed to the pot. so that is that. not so fast, slow it down and not everything is so clea n. it down and not everything is so clean. he appeared to start falling over before he was touched so does the liverpool manishiate the co nta ct? the liverpool manishiate the contact? would there have been contact? would there have been co nta ct a ny contact? would there have been contact any way, luckily we have var? the video assistant didn't see an errorfrom var? the video assistant didn't see an error from one var? the video assistant didn't see an errorfrom one of var? the video assistant didn't see an error from one of the most experienced officials. the penalty stood, liverpool went on to lose 2-0. get stood, liverpool went on to lose 2—0. get whatjurgen klopp was asked about in his press conference.” 2—0. get whatjurgen klopp was asked
6:37 pm
about in his press conference. i am sure there are different views on that situation, but when the player jumps before there is contact it cannot be a penalty. that is a decision made by human beings, so i think when you see the pictures and it is clear, but the rule is like, if it is is not a clear mistake human beings decide what is a clear mistake so what can i say about it? fear not liverpool fans you have lost there last season too and that didn't end up too badly too. at sta mford didn't end up too badly too. at stamford bridge it was the english side benefitting from a debatable call. watch it in real time. penalty? this time the referee thought not. encouraged to have another look, he decided he had handled the ball. penalty, the drama wasn't done net yet. how many players does it training to choose the penalty taker? one, two, three, four? it seemed a bit over the top. sadly for ross barkley, it was.
6:38 pm
ross was the penalty taker, it was preseason, has scored and was today when he come on and he missed it. i don't know where the conversation was but penalty takers were on pitch. a tale of two penalty, two defeats and plenty of debate and you have probably not heard the last of it. iam sure it. i am sure we haven't. let's find out a bit more on those incidents now — with our football reporterjohn bennett. let us go to the liverpool match. lots of social media reaction to this one. jimmy konrad an american journalist, listen, that is not a penalty. it is var drunk.|j journalist, listen, that is not a penalty. it is var drunk. i have a lot of sympathy with jurgen klopp, with the liverpool fan, for me it wasn't a penalty. jurgen klopp got it spot on. the player seemed to jump it spot on. the player seemed to jump before robertson made the challenge but it comes down to a problem we have seen in the premier league all season, if it is not
6:39 pm
clear and obvious, if it is not a blatant error the var won't step in. let us look at what the ruling is. the var team will check all match changing situations. they seem to not want to step in, if it is open to interpretation, for me i would have liked the referee on the pitch to have gone over to the screen, we saw that in the chelsea game when that penalty was given, the referee went over to the screen, they are total not do that in the premier league but in the champions league they do that often, so it is sad he didn't do that because that was not a penalty. he would have overturned it if he had seen it himself. let us turn our attention to the chelsea match. it was more about who should ta ke match. it was more about who should take this penalty. ross barkley put it over the bar and abraham and willian were in dispute over who should be taking it. james ole spoke about the alleged row before taking that penalty, but it must have put
6:40 pm
barkley off. it did not look good. it has been a theme this season. we saw it with pogba and rashford, this designated penalty taker issue. jorginho and willian were the designated penalty takers but barkley came on and he hands been the designated penalty taker. willian‘s behaviour is something i am sure frame paramedic will be asked about. rob green was a guest, former england goalkeeper and former chelsea player, he was a guest on 5 live, he said this will cause problems in the dressing room. there will be debates in the dressing room and it put barkley off. there are games going on tonight of course. tot ham in group b. they are in action right now. the score is 2—1 to tottenham. harry kane won a
6:41 pm
penalty which he converted to put spurs ahead. then, lucas moura, the hero of last season's semifinal, smashed in a second to make it 2—0 in the first half, in athens. it is currently 2—1 so olympiakos have pulled one back there. manchester city are away later on tonight. they are in ukraine to play shakhtar donetsk. that is where we can find iain dennis. they have defensive programme, manchester city, pep guardiola revealed that john programme, manchester city, pep guardiola revealed thatjohn stones is going to be missing for round 44-5 is going to be missing for round 44—5 weeks with a muscle injury sustained here in ukraine. it leaves them with one established central defenders in otamendi and michael browne, so much focus on the defensive problems that pep guardiola described as a challenge. there is a shock in the room
6:42 pm
yesterday when he announced he would lose johnstones for 4—6 weeks, but fernandez owe, there is no problem with him stepping in. he is not a natural dedenneder, who sees the dangerous. but there is one there, that can sort of, catch you out a bit. but after that, we have garcia who has joined the squad, they have to cope, they have a great squad in number, great quality and these are the tests you have. how much do you think manchester city need to make an impact in europe? we know about pep guardiola, what he has achieved but as a manchester city manager, he is yet to go beyond the quarterfinals in this competition. is yet to go beyond the quarterfinals in this competitionlj quarterfinals in this competition.” am sure that will be something he will be aware of. the owner, they would have said we need to be in the champions league. the brand globally where are they? it would be better if they can deliver a champions league, i think pep guardiola loves that, he wants the premier league first and the rest takes care of itself, but the pressure will be
6:43 pm
building from above, regarding the champions league, i am sure of that. this is that mill yar opposition, the third successive season that manchester city have been paired with shakhtar donetsk in the group stage, and this place here will be close to a sell—out tonight. europe's ryder cup captain padraig harrington has named robert karlsson as the first of his vice—captains for the 2020 competition at whistling straits. karlsson made two ryder cup appearances as a player, winning at the k club in 2006. somerset suffered a heavy defeat to hampshire at the ageas bowl. hampshire's kyle abbott took 17 wickets in the game — the most taken by one bowler in a first class match, sincejim laker took 19 in a test against australia in i956.the result has left somerset needing to beat nearest rivals essex — who are now top — in theirfinal match. wales rob davies' has become european para table tennis champion for the fourth time. he beat world numberfive endre
6:44 pm
major in today's final in sweden. after a six year battle with motor neurone disease, former rangers player fernando ricksen has died, at the age of 43 years. he passed away at a hospice earlier this morning. the dutchman spent six successful seasons at ibrox helping the club to the treble in 2003. alistair lamont has more. champions league, i am sure of that. this is familiar opposition, the third successive season that manchester city have been paired with shakhtar donetsk in the group stage, and this place here will be close to a sell—out tonight. a pointment day at ibrox, the passing of fernando ricksen marked by swathes of scarf, shirts, and messages. the fans mourning one of their favourite sons. a hero for what he has gone through and what he has done for mnd has gone through and what he has done formnd and has gone through and what he has done for mnd and bringing it to the forefront. you can see by the turn out. by the time the weekend comes that should be full. what a tribute. the captain of the side fernando ricksen...
6:45 pm
the captain of the side fernando ricksen. .. fernando ricksen the captain of the side fernando ricksen... fernando ricksen became a cult hero to those fans in a rangers career laden with silverware, two league, two scottish cup, three league cups in six seasons. one of the men with whom he shared those good times was among the first to react to today's devastating news. he stole the hearts of the supporters by the way he played on the park, and i think the rangers family showed their appreciation during his illness, and the support and love they gave him, that gave him also energy and the strength to keep fighting, i think. him also energy and the strength to keep fighting, ithink. rangers him also energy and the strength to keep fighting, i think. rangers own tribute led by their managing director said: everyone connected with rangers will be distressed by fernando's passinger he fought so bravely against a terrible illness and our thoughts are with his family. he will never be forgotten
6:46 pm
by his team—mates or fan, family. he will never be forgotten by his team—mates orfan, his place in our history is secured. throughout his battle ricksen had used his position to raise money for charity. when somebody is well-known as fernando ricksen talks about illness and opens it up and people can see how it has affected him, thatis can see how it has affected him, that is really helpful. just in terms of general awareness, general understanding, people knowing what to expect, what to expect when they do meet somebody with the illness. it makes an enormous difference. measure of the man that was fernando ricksen. just a few days ago welsh rugby legend gareth thomas revealed to the world that he's living with hiv. the former british and irish lions captain — whose journey is documented on a bbc programme later — said he'd been living in fear of the press publishing details of his hiv status, and criticised how a reporter approached his parents, before he told them. ican i can never ever i can never ever ever have i can never ever ever have that moment back with my mother and father, sitting down and telling
6:47 pm
them something so personal to me, they took, that i took that right away from me, i'm lucky i have pa rents away from me, i'm lucky i have parents who love me and who will support me, through anything. but i deserved to have that moment with them. strong words there. strong words there. the documentary, gareth thomas: hiv and me, is on bbc one wales tonight at 9pm, and can be seen on bbc one in the rest of the uk tonight at 10.35. the hype is building towards katie taylor's headline fight, at manchester arena in november. ireland's unified world lightweight champion is stepping up a weight to take on christina linardatou. taylorjoined me in the studio to talk about her preparations, and her plans for taking the sport to new parts of the world. i'm super excited about it. this is everything that i dreamed of, really to headline such a huge show like this and i don't think when i sat down when i heard a few years ago, when i was first thinking of turning pro, didn't think i was going to be in this position so early on in my
6:48 pm
career, i have a chance to become two way champion which is incredible. are you surprised how quickly your career has developed? we didn't know how this was going to turn out when i first had my debut but it has gone from strength to strength. the excitement has been amazing, the support i have been getting from people here in the uk and earand land getting from people here in the uk and ear and land america has been phenomenal, and there is so many big fights out there for me, my last fights out there for me, my last fight was, it was a toe to toe battle. people are looking for that rematch to have, that is probably the biggest fight in women's boxing, there is so many big fights round there is so many big fights round the corner. what to you make of your opponent, because it is up a division? it is going to be a new challenge for me, christina lina rdatou, challenge for me, christina linardatou, she is a fantastic champion and she is not going to give up her belt too easily, she is
6:49 pm
here to fight and she is very aggressive, a big right hand so it will be very exciting, it is a headline show that is for sure. you mention about your fan ways. uk and ireland sown up but the us is a new territory, is that something you wa nt territory, is that something you want the look forward to? yes, it is everyone's goal to build a worldwide fan base and i am delighted to be back here in the uk for the next fight and the first time i fought here in over a year so it is great to be back here fighting in the uk, but the goalfor to be back here fighting in the uk, but the goal for every boxer in the world is to create a big fan base worldwide and that is what i am aiming towards. looking to the new frontier, ant anyjoshua said it would be an option to see a female fight on the undercard, is that something, something like saudi arabia could be an option for you maybe? i want to be involved in
6:50 pm
history making fight, i want to be involved in big fights no matter where, big shows and it is is a com pletely where, big shows and it is is a completely different culture in saudi arabia but it's a step forward in the right direction to see a female fight on those cards. hopefully that can happen some time, i would love that opportunity. double paralympic champion libby clegg has been named in britain's squad for the world para—athletics championships five months after becoming a mother. clegg won a 100m and 200m double at rio 2016 and will be competing at her first major championships in three years. the team has a mix of experience for the event in dubai this november. so the team we have 43 athletes selected. the first time, that is a reality exciting new addition for us, a good mix of established household names and new athletes so it is definitely a team which i would say is not that strongest, but it is is a team definitely going in
