LEICESTER, England, Jan 10 (Reuters) – Leicester City’s stirring Post Horn Gallop had been threatening to turn into a mournful Last Post as their wretched season limped along — but the seeds of hope are starting to sprout afresh at the King Power stadium.

CARDIFF (Reuters) – Warren Gatland’s hair had already gone grey before he took the Wales head coaching job in late 2007 but the New Zealander has probably had plenty of sleepless nights since, dotted among the triumphs.

Despite delivering three Six Nations titles, including two grand slams, and a World Cup semi-final in 2011, Gatland’s Wales have been unable to consistently trouble the south hemisphere heavyweights of New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

CARDIFF (Reuters) – Wales ended their long and frustrating wait for victory over a southern hemisphere heavyweight when Leigh Halfpenny kicked them to a 12-6 victory over South Africa on Saturday.
