Are Wales tough enough for the World Cup?

Jonathan Davies believes mental toughness must be prominent in Wales' armoury if they are to emerge from the so-called World Cup pool of death.

Arguably the toughest World Cup group in the tournament's 28-year history will begin unfolding next month, with Wales, host nation England and twice-world champions Australia among those battling for two quarter-final places.

Watch: Flat battery or a tough workout?

You have got to go in thinking you are going to play every game because I don't think the back-up players are pushing enough, which maybe is the one weakness in the Welsh game.

– Jonathan Davies

Wales boss Gatland will name his final 31-man World Cup squad at the Millennium Stadium next Monday.

Slade hails Cardiff progress after Wolves win

Cardiff City manager Russell Slade believes he and his side are turning a corner after their 2-0 win over Wolves yesterday.

Goals from Kenwyne Jones and Sammy Ameobi were enough to see off the threat of Kenny Jackett's men, with the Bluebirds up to 7th in the Championship table.

Slade's appointment was not universally popular when he replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as full time manager and a mid-table finish last season did little to win over some of the Cardiff faithful.

But Jones' header on the stroke of half time and Ameobi's deflected strike provides hope for some as Cardiff look for a more consistent promotion challenge this time round.

A concern for Slade though will be the injury of Jones, with the Cardiff boss confirming the The Trinidad and Tobago international would have tests on an ankle injury that forced him off the field after his goal.

"Everybody thought I would be down the road by the end of August I guess. We are in a good place at the moment and are playing the way I want us to. You can see we are progressing and the players are comfortable with what we are trying to do. It was important we got our first win and it will build confidence, which is always important. It was pretty even in the first period but we managed to draw first blood which is important. Their goalkeeper was committed and Kenwyne just had to get something on it and it went in. We controlled the second half and Sammy showed us a glimpse of what he can do."

Muliaina appeared before Cardiff magistrates charged with one count of sexual assault, which the prosecution claim occurred in Cardiff city centre on March 7th.

Hours before the alleged incident, Muliaina had turned out for Irish side Connacht in their away game against Cardiff Blues.

Muliaina has yet to enter a formal plea, but the New Zealand Rugby Players Association has previously said the full back "strenuously denies any wrongdoing" and intended to "plead not guilty".

Muliaina, who lives in Galway, Ireland, now plays for Italian side Zebre.

His case will resume at Cardiff Crown Court on September 7th.
