1. #PREMIER LEAGUE Manchester United took the Premier League title race by the scruff of the neck with a 2-0 win against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

The champions stretched their lead over Manchester City to five points thanks to late goals from Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young.

2. #HEINEKEN CUP Ulster face an anxious wait to see if Stephen Ferris will be fit in time to face Munster in Sunday’s Heineken Cup quarter-final.

A scan on the flanker’s injured ankle revealed significant ligament and muscle damage yesterday, making Ferris a major doubt for the trip to Thomond Park.

3. #GALVIN Limerick footballer John Galvin could be set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines after he was stretchered off during Sunday’s NFL Division 4 match against Fermanagh.

The Irish Examiner reports that the Croom clubman will have a scan today amid fears that he has suffered a recurrence of his cruciate ligament injury.

4. #HENSON Gavin Henson woke up this morning to a very uncertain future in rugby after he was sacked by the Cardiff Blues yesterday afternoon.

The 30-year-old Welsh international had earlier apologised for his alcohol-fuelled misbehaviour on board a team flight last Saturday morning.

5. #GAA The Division 1 National Hurling League semi-finals will be staged as a double-header in Semple Stadium on 22 April, the GAA confirmed yesterday.

Kilkenny’s meeting with either Clare or Limerick will serve as the curtain-raiser at 2pm before Cork take on Tipperary at 4pm. See the full schedule here.

6. #CHAMPIONS LEAGUE The first of this year’s Champions League semi-finalists will be decided tonight in Spain and Germany.

Following last week’s 0-0 draw in the San Siro, Barcelona host AC Milan in the Camp Nou, while Bayern Munich already have one foot in the final four. They take a 2-0 lead into their home tie with Olympique Marseille this evening.
