by la rochelle tonight. the french side, second in their domestic league were slick and although gloucester kept up the pressure la rochelle never looked in much danger, this their second try after 22 minutes as arthur retiere squeezing over in the corner. la rochelle will play scarlets or sale in the quarterfinals. meanwhile london irish are through to the european challenge cup quarter finals after pulling off an incredible late comeback to beat cardiff blues despite playing neary half the game with 14 men. in the other games, bath beat zebre and glasgow lost to montpellier. onto football and championship leaders norwich were denied their 10th win in 11 games after preston equalised in the 95th—minute. emi buendia's first half goalfor norwich looked like it was enough to give them yet another victory. but then deep into injury time, brad potts' deflected shot went in to make it 1—1. norwich are six points ahead of watford, who beat sheffield wednesday 1—0. so this is how it looks at the top
10:54 pm
of the championship table, a big gap between the top two and third placed swansea who've just lost to birmingham tonight. bournemouth have boosted their play off chances with a win against middlsbrough today. at the bottom, an important win for wycombe today, they beat blackburn. and birmingham's win was also huge against swansea. but defeats for rotherham and sheffield wednesday. inverness caledonian thistle are through to the third round of the scottish cup. they beat ross county 3—1 after coming form a goal down to reach the next stage with danny mckay shrugging off defenders to score the second goal. the manager of the premier league leaders manchester city pep guardiola has said they're unlikely to buy a replacement striker this summer because they're all too expensive. sergio aguero will leave the club at the end of the season and guardiola has been looking at options for a new forward, but says they can't afford the asking price. a lot, lot, a lot of big chances we are not going to sign a striker
10:55 pm
for the next season, we cannot afford it. it is impossible. all the clubs are struggling financially, we are not an exception. they have played incredible in this position, young players in the academy who play. i don't what is going to happen. maybe it is going to be him, maybe, but maybe we are not going to buy any striker for the next season. now with covid restrictions still affecting super league, st helen's stadium hosted both of today's games. a tough day for leigh as they were beaten 44—12 by warrington while castleford came through a tight match with leeds 18—10. alex gulrajani watched the action. the dream returned to super liquor wasn't to be last week with a narrow defeat to wigan. today's test against warranting proved to be another uphill battle. half an hour on the clock in the game was effectively over as the a contest.
10:56 pm
four tries including this from gareth went up gave warrington a huge advantage at the break. and it was a gap that wouldn't come close to closing. four more tries for wolves and the second would've wrap things up as they rent out 40 for —— 12 winners. lead rhinos and tigers were looking to build on opening weekend wins. it was tigers who pass her head early with two tries. the second coming from nigh levels. the rhinos fought back briscoe got the moving in the right direction. and when pryor went over in the second half became a two—point game. they would have enough and something a little bit more to come turner's third try of the season enough for them to seal victory. season enough for them to seal victory. alex gulrajani, bbc news. the first women's major of the year, the ana inspiration in california, is looking really competitive as the second round continues. england's georgia hall

10:58 pm
sporting bodies in the letter i've seen they are damning in their criticism of the japanese organisers and the nations government when it comes to covid protocols and also safety. it's obviously a huge blow for divers like daley and lord who would do to compete but it's also the last thing that the olympic organisers needed at a time when the japanese public are beginning to become increasingly sceptical about whether the game should be taking place in their country at all. country at all. nick hope, bbc news. and that's all the sport for now. hello there a of dry weather behind that weather front by the time we get to easter monday it will be much colder. an arctic and a strong writing north wind. it's still going to be chilly enough this morning with a touch of frost, a little bit
