Wendy can lead NI to Scotland

Wendy Houvenaghel was right to criticise her GB team-mates and coach Shane Sutton after missing out on gold having been left out of all three team pursuit races. If she had participated in one race she would have been entitled to a medal and rightly so.

It was "unjust", but Performance Director Dave Brailsford said decisions were made on merit.

Wendy should stick at it. In two years there will be the Commonwealth Games in Scotland, and Team GB will be fragmented into the various home countries.

Wendy should be tasked in building up a Northern Ireland team to challenge the rest.
