Six players from Bath Rugby and two from Gloucester Rugby have been picked for England's rugby world cup squad.

David Wilson, George Ford, Sam Burgess, Anthony Watson, Rob Webber and Jonathan Joseph - all from Bath - along with Ben Morgan and Jonny May from Gloucester - will be taking place in the global event on home soil.

Critics - among them Will Carling - argue that Sam Burgess has been rushed into England's World Cup squad too soon, but the management have been swayed by his destructive defence and leadership.

Meanwhile, Ben Morgan proved his fitness in training this week having played just 40 minutes since breaking his leg in January.

Gloucestershire are through to the semi finals of the One-Day Cup for the first time in over a decade.

Hampshire, who are already through to this weekend's T20 Finals day, hit 217 for 7. In reply, Gloucestershire reached their target of 218, to win by 4 wickets.

Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams has married a soldier in Somerset that she met on dating app Tinder 18 months ago.

Williams became engaged to Craig Ham, after just 12 weeks. The couple tied the knot in Williams's childhood village at St Nicholas Church in Bathampton, which she had attended since the age of six.

Williams won gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada, but announced her retirement in 2012 due to injuries.

The couple were destined to meet as she logged onto the app while on a train from London to Bath. As the app uses your location to find you a match, she may not have met Craig Ham, who is based in Hampshire, otherwise.

Mr Ham is a Warrant Officer class two (AQMS) with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.

Craig Ham wore his ceremonial uniform during the wedding, while Williams wore an Augusta Jones dress from Krystle Brides of Bath boutique.
