FIA sets date for Ferrari right of review request

The FIA is set to consider Ferrari’s request for a right of review of Carlos Sainz penalty in the Australian Grand Prix on Tuesday, April 18.

Ferrari submitted its request after Sainz was hit with a five-second penalty by the Aussie GP stewards for tagging Fernando Alonso into a spin on the exit of Turn 1 just after the race’s second restart.

The Spaniard finished fourth on the road in Melbourne, behind race winner Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso, but dropped to 12th in the event’s final results once the five-second time penalty was factored in.

Tuesday’s process will see Ferrari introduce what it considers as a “significant and relevant new element” that was not available to the stewards at the time, after which the FIA will consider the evidence and decide whether the Scuderia’s request for a review is granted, or not.

If Ferrari’s request is deemed receivable, a new hearing will be held to discuss the sanction.

On Tuesday, Sainz and a Ferrari representative will report to the stewards for a virtual hearing to be held at 08:00 CET.

“The process is that first, they will have a look on our petition to see if they can re-open the case,” Scuderia boss Fred Vasseur told the media last week.

“And then we’ll have a second hearing a bit later, with the same stewards or the stewards of the next meeting, about the decision itself.

“What we can expect is at least to have an open discussion with them, and also for the good of the sport to avoid to have this kind of decision when you have three cases on the same corner, and not the same decision.

“The biggest frustration was from Carlos, and you heard it on the radio, to not have a hearing.

“Because the case was very special, and in this case, I think it would have made sense considering that it was the race was over, it was not affecting the podium, to have a hearing, as Gasly and Ocon had.”

Rennes ditch Kim Min-jae deal amid Premier League competition

As reported by L’Équipe, Fenerbahçe defender Kim Min-jae will not be joining Ligue 1 club Rennes despite lengthy talks between the interested parties.

Rennes assumed they were involved in a straight fight between themselves and Italian side Napoli to sign the 25-year-old South Korean international after both clubs activated the player’s release clause this weekend, reportedly set at around €19.5m. However, the defender has, so far, decided against joining both clubs who were in the process of offering personal terms following sporting director Florian Maurice’s trip to Istanbul in the last few days.

This is because at least one Premier League club has now also entered the race at the final stage and, with the delay and the player’s wage demands being sizeable, Rennes have switched their focus to other targets. Rennes would be unlikely to be able to compete with English clubs on salary but Rennes haven’t entirely given up signing the defender, as they look for a replacement for Nayef Aguerd who left for West Ham, but a deal now seems unlikely despite the fact that a verbal agreement was reached between Rennes and Kim last week.

Premiership: England props Joe Marler and Ellis Genge return as Harlequins and Bristol Bears clash

Loosehead prop Joe Marler has returned from injury to take his place in Harlequins’ XV for their game against Bristol Bears at Twickenham Stoop.

Marler sustained the problem in Quins’ 39-31 Champions Cup defeat to the Sharks, which meant he missed the victory over Racing 92 a week later.

However, he returns to the starting line-up with player of the match from the previous contest, Fin Baxter, dropping to the bench.

A front-row trio of Marler, Jack Walker and Wilco Louw are reunited and backed up in the engine room by George Hammond and Irne Herbst.

The back-row sees Archie White return to the starting line-up at blindside flanker in place of the injured Jack Kenningham, joining Will Evans and Alex Dombrandt at the back of the scrum.

The backline remains unchanged, with Danny Care and Tommy Allan looking to control proceedings from the half-back department in what is set to be a thrilling encounter between two attacking sides in South West London.

Head coach Tabai Matson said: “You might get sick of me saying it, but this game against Bristol in particular is really important. You get a result and we have the chance to create a bit of space between ourselves and the teams in fifth and sixth. In the larger scheme of things, this would be a really important victory.

“We’ve discussed that with the senior players and they’re fired up to get back into the Premiership. Being at home in front of a sold-out Stoop, we want to deliver a good performance.”

Six changes for Bristol

Meanwhile, Ellis Genge and Magnus Bradbury return to action for Bristol when they make the trip to West London.

Pat Lam makes six changes from the side that beat Zebre Parma in the European Challenge Cup, with Rich Lane, Sam Bedlow, Andy Uren and Max Lahiff all named in the starting XV.

Luke Morahan will make his final appearance in a Bears shirt in the festive clash, while Joe Batley, who signed a long-term extension with the club this week, continues in the second-row.

Monaco priced out of €20m Boubakary Soumaré deal with Leicester City

According to L’Équipe AS Monaco have been priced-out in a deal for Leicester City midfielder Boubakary Soumaré after the Monagasques’ management deemed a €20m price-tag to be too high for the player – as the side are still searching for a replacement for Aurélien Tchouameni, who joined Real Madrid for a €100m fee earlier this transfer window.

Monaco submitted a €15m bid for the Leicester City midfielder – but the Premier League side were holding out for a €20m fee for Soumaré. The principality side were initially pushing for a loan deal, but the option was ruled out by Leicester.

Having edged slowly into Brendan Rodger’s starting eleven at Leicester in the Premier League at the start of last season, the midfielder has quite rapidly dropped out of the Foxes’ side – playing only two matches in the last 17. In total, Soumaré played 19 times in the Premier League, and made 14 appearances in the Europa League – scoring one goal in each competition.

The former Paris Saint-Germain youth prospect was  part of Lille’s Ligue 1 winning side in 2020/2021 – and has only sent one year away from France after moving to Leicester for €17m.

Marcus Thuram turns down offer form Nice

L’Équipe report this morning that French forward Marcus Thuram has turned down an offer from Nice, who had made the Borussia Mönchengladbach man their priority signing for the number 9 position this summer.

The 25-year-old, who opened his Bundesliga campaign with a goal against Hoffenheim over the weekend, had made his decision known shortly before the game, after weeks of discussions over a potential return to Ligue 1.

The former Guingamp man, who has one year left on his contract with the German club, ideally wants to be playing in a club which is on the European stage so as to compete for a place in Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the World Cup, over a year after his last call-up.

To get there, he wants to have a better season than last – he has already bettered his tally in all competition from last year with a hat-trick in the cup – and play in the Champions League, which Nice cannot offer with their Conference League qualifying status.

Lucien Favre had called him multiple times and ensured that he had high ambitions for Les Aiglons, but Thuram – who also wants to move to the number 9 position permanently – wanted to play at the highest level now, with his current team missing out on Europe entirely.

Thuram was also on Borussia Dortmund’s shortlist for a Sébastien Haller replacement, but his signing proved too costly and Anthony Modeste was chosen. The 25-year-old is said to have attracted interest from Italy instead.

The 28-year-old Spanish international is currently with Udinese in Serie A but is attracting interest from across the continent this off-season, say the outlet. Villarreal, Napoli, Torino and Atalanta are also keen on the player who joined Udinese in January 2021.

Napoli were in talks over a €16m move last month while Villarreal have also been described as a front runner and Real Sociedad and Roma also enquired with Udinese over their €15m asking price for Deulofeu back in June. However, the player’s agent says his client has not ruled out staying with Udinese for another year.

Deulofeu enjoyed the most productive campaign of his top-flight career last season, scoring 13 goals and adding five assists over 34 games in Serie A for the Udine side.

Nienaber under no illusions about Italy challenge as Boks look to end losing run

South Africa are "determined to get onto the right side of the scoreboard" after two defeats in the Autumn Nations Series but head coach Jacques Nienaber says it will be tough against a confident Italy on Saturday.The 50-year-old on Tuesday made four changes in personnel and two positional switches to his starting line-up from the one that lost 30-26 to Six Nations champions France last Saturday.VOTE FOR EMILY CHANCELLOR AND LALAKAI FOKETI FOR WORLD RUGBY TRY OF THE YEARThe world champions — who lost 19-16 to Ireland in their opener — will face an Italy side with its tails up after recording their first ever victory over Australia last Saturday."Italy's victory against Australia will boost their confidence immensely going into this match," said Nienaber."They defeated Wales away in the Six Nations and tested Scotland as well, so we are under no illusions as to the challenge that lies ahead."Italy have shown before what a force they can be at home by defeating the Boks 20-18 in Florence (November 2016), and they will draw confidence from that as well."Nienaber has brought in Andre Esterhuizen to partner Damian de Allende in the centres — veteran Jesse Kriel dropping out altogether — whilst No8 Jasper Wiese returns having had to miss the France game due to concussion.Franco Mostert has been switched from lock to the backrow as Pieter-Steph du Toit faces a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday after his red card in the French Test.Nienaber has installed an all new second row of Marvin Orie and Salmaan Moerat — veteran Eben Etzebeth dropping to the bench. "A couple of players have been training very hard in the last few weeks and deserve a chance to start," said Nienaber."Lood's (de Jager) injury and Pieter-Steph's disciplinary hearing opened the door for us to give them an opportunity."Salmaan and Marvin are both Stormers players, so they have been playing together for a while, and they are very hungry for game time, so we are looking forward to what they bring in the game."Nienaber says they have been working hard to fine tune things that have not gone right for them in their two matches so far. "We believe we are on the right track after coming close against Ireland and France," he said."If we can produce a strong showing up front and be a little more accurate in our execution, we know we can turn things around on tour."Springboks (15-1): Willie le Roux; Cheslin Kolbe, Damian de Allende, Andre Esterhuizen, Kurt-Lee Arendse; Damian Willemse, Faf de Klerk; Jasper Wiese, Franco Mostert, Siya Kolisi (capt); Marvin Orie, Salmaan Moerat; Frans Malherbe, Bongi Mbonambi, Ox NcheReplacements: Malcolm Marx, Steven Kitshoff, Vincent Koch, Eben Etzebeth, Kwagga Smith, Evan Roos, Cobus Reinach, Manie LibbokClick Here: Malaysia Rugby Shop

Mohamed Camara passes AS Monaco medical

Saber Desfarges is reporting that Red Bull Salzburg’s Mohamed Camara (22) has passed his medical at AS Monaco and is set to sign for the Principality club on Sunday. 

It had earlier been reported by L’Équipe that Camara was set to sign for the Principality club as Aurélien Tchouaméni’s (22) replacement. According to Desfarges, Camara has now passed his medical and is set to conclude his transfer from Austrian side RB Salzburg. 

Camara was reportedly spotted at the Stade Louis II on Saturday during the club’s 1-1 draw against Rennes. Post-match, Monaco manager Philippe Clement said that, “It’s clear. We have said that there is another midfielder coming.”

That arrival now looks imminent with the arrival of Camara. Despite the deal for the Mali international being concluded, Monaco also continue to be linked with Leicester City’s Boubakary Soumaré (23). He was left out of Leicester’s most recent matchday squad, with manager Brendan Rodgers revealing that “there is an opportunity that has come that interests him.”
