Ireland prevail to end Wales hope of Grand Slam repeat
Ireland kept their hopes alive of a second Six Nations Grand Slam in three years while ending Wales' hopes of a repeat with a deserved 24-14 win at Lansdowne Road in Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday. The Irish outscored the Welsh by four tries to two with South Africa-born No 8 CJ Stander producing a man-of-the-match performance. Wales will rue missed chances especially when Hadleigh Parkes failed to ground the ball over the tryline in the second-half as their run of eight successive Six Nations wins came to an end.
Everton charge into European contention with Palace triumph
Everton moved up to seventh and within five points of the English Premier League (EPL) top-four as their resurgence under Carlo Ancelotti continued with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday. Bernard, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the goals for the Toffees, who have won five and drawn two of eight league games since the Italian took charge in December. At the other end of the table, Palace are looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone. Roy Hodgson's men still have a six-point lead over the bottom three, but have not won in eight EPL games.
Late blitz books Rangers place in Scottish Cup quarters
Rangers scored three times in the final 22 minutes to beat Hamilton 4-1 in Lanarkshire, Scotland, and book their place in the Scottish Cup quarterfinals. Scott Arfield gave the visitors the lead on the rebound after his penalty was saved by Luke Southwood. However, Hamilton levelled before the break through Lewis Smith. Rangers clicked into gear in the final quarter, though, as Joe Aribo's strike before Alfredo Morelos's first goal of 2020 and a late Arfield strike secured victory.
