FT: Edinburgh 28-13 Cardiff Blues

Edinburgh posted their third win of the Guinness PRO12 campaign as they saw off Cardiff Blues 28-13 at BT Murrayfield, with the Welsh outfit paving the way for the hosts after having three players sin-binned at crucial moments.

Edinburgh, who also had two players yellow carded late in the game, welcomed back several men who had been out with long-term injuries and all emerged unscathed from a bruising encounter.

Two penalties by Gareth Davies were all Cardiff had to show for their efforts until seven minutes from full time when Adam Thomas touched and Davies converted.

Manchester City apologise over Ched Evans calendar

Manchester City have apologised after children reportedly as young as six were given a certificate featuring convicted rapist Ched Evans.

The youngsters were given the certificate after attending a coaching course at the City academy, where Evans played for eight years before moving to Sheffield United.

The Sun quoted one parent saying:: “It’s a disgrace. I had to explain to my six-year-old lad why someone on his award was a criminal. A rapist is hardly someone to be promoting City to children."

A Manchester City spokeswoman apologised and said the club had now withdrawn the certificates.

The club would like to apologise for any distress caused to the recipients or their parents.

It is some years since these certificates were updated and they were part of an old batch which were mistakenly distributed and which will not be distributed again.
