Jonny Bunyan follows brother Keith to Commonwealth Games

A Commonwealth Games in Australia will feel familiar, but also brand-new to Jonny Bunyan. The Antipodean fervour, the sunshine, the familial pride, have all been experienced previously soaked up. Yet when the Glasgow Rocks basketballer last ventured Down Under, he was an entranced young spectator in awe of his elder sibling’s role on the court. This time, it will be him in Scotland’s colours, out to make an impression of his own.

Tom Sole all set to take his Scotland chances

Being the offspring of a rugby union legend, Tom Sole admits, leaves one with impossibly large boots to fill. The paterfamilias, David, was a marauding prop with few peers in his pomp with Scotland and the Lions. His four children, each with sporting gifts of their own, have ventured also into the sphere. But without needless hype or burden.

The venue for the reception, the two-time Olympian confides, will be amid the woodlands of Surrey, a not-unnatural choice for a couple who initially bonded over a shared affection for slogging speedily over fields and dales.
