Ospreys add Wales Sevens star to squad for World Cup in San Francisco

Wales Sevens star Luke Morgan will link up with Ospreys following his involvement in this month’s World Cup in San Francisco. The 26-year-old from Bridgend is Wales’ leading try- and points - scorer of all time, and ended the 2017/18 World Rugby Sevens Series second in most tries scored (44) – with only the USA’s Carlin Isles touching down on more occasions (49) across the campaign. Morgan, who came through the development pathway at the Ospreys and played one senior game for his home region as a teenager, follows former Wales Sevens teammate Sam Cross, who joined the Liberty Stadium based region last pre-season, with Cross’ move being made permanent in March.

Summer Reading Challenge starts for Carmarthenshire children

Children are being urged to take part in this year’s free Summer Reading Challenge.
This year’s challenge, which launched on Saturday, July 14, is Mischief Makers, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Beano comic.
To take part, all children need to do is to head to their local library where they will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their reading journey.
Visit Ammanford, Carmarthen or Llanelli town libraries along with any of the 15 local community libraries and the three mobile library vans in Carmarthenshire, to be able to enter a competition for the most read books over the summer to win a family ticket to a Pantomime near you.
As children read at least six library books over the summer, they will collect stickers which will help them crack the clues and help Dennis, Gnasher and friends find the buried treasure!
The Summer Reading Challenge, a unique partnership between The Reading Agency and public libraries across the UK, last year got ov…
