Byline: Andy MYERS

BRAVE Andy Flintoff battled through the pain barrier to haul England back into contention in the final Test against South Africa.

The Lancashire all-rounder needed pain injections to fight an ankle injury but claimed four wickets as the hosts finished on 247 for nine after the second day's play.

Flintoff said: 'The injury is getting slightly worse but I'm just concentrating on getting this last wicket then hopefully some runs.' #FORMER Warwickshire batsman Andy Moles last night admitted he took a huge gamble by becoming Scotland's new coach.

The ex-Kenya coach has been handed a six month deal and failure to guide Craig Wright's side to a top-five finish at this summer's ICC Trophy will see him axed.

The 43-year-old said: 'Coaching is precarious but I'm ready.'

#RONNIE O'SULLIVAN edged past fellow Englishman Barry Hawkins 6-4 yesterday to claim a place in the Welsh Open final.

O'Sullivan will meet either Stephen Hendry or Mark King and said: 'The thought that I might get to play Stephen motivated me.'

Meanwhile, former Scottish snooker champion Eddie Sinclair has died aged 67.
