Watch as Chorley bench laugh in face of Adama Traore during confrontation as Vitinha screamer sees Wolves through to FA Cup fifth round

Sports
Adama Traore failed to intimidate the Chorley bench as they laughed off his confrontation during their FA Cup fourth round tie on Friday night. Vitinha’s early screamer proved the difference in the match as the Premier League side won 1-0 away at the National League North part-timers. Midway through the second half, Traore made a late challenge and barged over a Chorley man in front of the home bench.

England v Barbarians: Elliot Daly to start at full-back, Danny Cipriani on the bench

Sports
Friday, May 25, 2018 Elliot Daly will start England's non-cap international against the Barbarians at full-back, with Danny Cipriani having to settle for a place among the replacements. It is Daly's first start in the number 15 jersey, having made all but one of his previous England appearances on the wing, and the selection sees Mike Brown - the usual incumbent in the position - switch to the left wing. Cipriani has been overlooked for a starting role despite his return to the senior England squad, with George Ford preferred at fly-half. The team is co-captained by Ford and Chris Robshaw, and the latter is joined in the back row by Tom Curry, the Sale openside who appears destined to fill the seven jersey for next month's series against Sou...
