LITESPORT for Cleverly Hendry: I can still pocket world title STEPHEN HENDRY believes he can win another world title but has targeted breaking back into the top eight in the world as his priority this season. The 40-year-old Scot (left) was speaking after beating Matthew Selt 5-2 in the Grand Prix first round in Glasgow. Asked if he could win again, Hendry said: Definitely. I thought I had a good chance last season. I got to the quarter-finals and lost to Shaun Murphy in a match that I could easily have won. It was 13-11.

Cullen, above, will battle for supremacy after sharing a room at boarding school FORMER Quins star Will Greenwood says he would be staggered if his old side win anything this season after the Bloodgate row. Greenwood, a 2003 World Cup winner, said: Fortunately they face a Cardiff Blues side first up that cannot buy a win at the moment -- and they lost to Glasgow in the Magners League last weekend. The Blues have been missing world class players -- Gethin Jenkins, Jamie Roberts, Xavier Rush and Martyn Williams. Roberts has been passed fit this and his battle with Nick Evans promises to be epic. But I would be truly staggered if Quins come through this year and win anything.

Former Springbok Venter is acutely aware of the barbs about the club being a South African franchise in London and is adamant producing English qualified players is a priority. Venter said: We are going to get stuck into this European competition. It doesnt matter what team we put out, everyone will be ready and I have a fantastic outside half in Jake. This is a great chance for him to play in a proper game at Vicarage Road. It is such a pleasure watching our young guys because they are like mad things let out of a cage.

Live on Sky Sports 2 tonight, from 10pm Live on BBC2 and British Eurosport 2, from 7pm GOLF and rugby sevens will be included at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the IOC announced today. Both sports gained the simple majority of the 106 committee members needed at the IOC meeting in Copenhagen today. IOC president Jacques Rogge is a former Belgian rugby international. England rugby boss Martin Johnson said: The Olympic Games is the biggest sporting event in the world and an Olympic gold medal is the pinnacle of an athletes career. Its fantastic for rugby to have a chance to compete for that. Regardless of contracts, I think it would be very difficult to stop players if they had the chance to compete in the Olympics. But Ryder Cup hero Darren Clarke was not happy about golfs return to the Olympics after 112 years. He said: Ive always been against it because I grew up watching the Olympics and to me they are an amateur event. I know things have changed with tennis and basketball and all that. I can see why they are doing it to grow the sport around the world, but personally I dont think it should be in it. Thats just my opinion. It will help to make the game bigger and if I had the opportunity to play I probably would. Scotlands Paul Lawrie, Britains last winner of a major, commented: I would definitely play. I think its important. Why cant golf be in? I would love to win Olympic gold. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html
