Rugby League

Sal­ford have signed Eng­land cen­tre Kal­lum Watkins on a three-year deal. The 29-year-old was pre­vi­ously with Toronto Wolf­pack, who with­drew from the Su­per League sea­son in July. Watkins, a Sal­ford sea­son ticket-holder and ball boy as a child, won Su­per League six times with Leeds be­fore a stint in Aus­tralia with Gold Coast Ti­tans, then joined Toronto in May.

Rugby Union

Bris­tol Bears will aim to main­tain their Gal­lagher Premier­ship play-off push when they tackle Northamp­ton Saints at Ash­ton Gate this evening. Vic­tory for the West Coun­try club would take them above Sale Sharks into sec­ond place. That could change again to­mor­row night though, when Bris­tol’s play-off ri­vals Sale, Wasps and Bath, are all in ac­tion.

Olympic Games

The In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee has moved to end doubts over whether the post­poned Games will take place next year, say­ing that they will be sched­uled “with or with­out Covid”. Yoshiro Mori, the pres­i­dent of the Tokyo or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, has pre­vi­ously sug­gested that a vac­cine would be needed for the Olympics and Par­a­lympics to take place even in July 2021.
