World Cup 2015: New Zealand 26-16 Argentina

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Timely intervention: Aaron Smith scored a try in the second half to signal a change in the game’s momentum Attendance: 89, 019For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. New Zealand came through in the second half of this hugely enjoyable contest as a spirited Argentina ran out of steam just as the Kiwi substitutes changed the momentum of the game. It was physical and a few of the All Blacks may have played themselves out of a starting spot, but New Zealand have got their toughest World Cup pool game out of the way.WHAT’S HOTWembley crowd – A new record was set for attendance, with 89, 019 people crammed into Wembley, but they were good value as well. At times the noise was deafening and there was a truly impressive atmosphere throughout the game. No doubt a passionate performance from Argentina helped.Lack of panic – The All Blacks rarely fall apart, so when some players underperformed – Ma’a Nonu may not look back on this game with too much fondness, while Nehe Milner-Skudder made plenty of unforced errors – Steve Hansen calmly deployed his bench early. Sonny Bill Williams changed the game, frightened defenders into committing while Wyatt Crockett and Charlie Faumuina came in specifically to challenge a dominant Pumas scrum.Slogging away: Agustin Creevy carries into the heart of the All BlacksCaptain’s knock – Agustin Creevy put in a true leader’s display, carrying hard, hitting strong lines, scrummaging with relish and even throwing a few choice passes. When faced with the All Blacks bearing down on him he gritted his teeth an ran right at them. And what’s more, veteran flanker Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe was normally right behind him. It wasn’t enough in the end, but for an hour he was superb.Black lineouts – Their scrum may not have been firing on all cylinders, but their lineout was a thing of beauty and gave their half-backs perfect ball to work with. They generated good momentum from the set-piece from the sidelines, at one point driving a maul deep into the Pumas territory.WHAT’S NOTAll Blacks see yellow – Argentina’s Pablo Matera saw yellow first, getting sin binned after just ten minutes, but it was New Zealand’s lack of discipline that gave the Pumas every chance in the first half. Referee Wayne Barnes was ready to dish out the cards for infractions as Richie McCaw found out after an attempted trip – and he totally deserved his time off the park. Conrad Smith also got ten minutes on the naughty step after coming in from the side to halt Argentina, right in front of Barnes.Not so mellow yellow: Richie McCaw got New Zealand’s first yellow cardArgentina’s conditioning – They went toe to toe with New Zealand for 65 minutes, but after that holes began appearing in their heroic defences. Aaron Smith was able to exploit disarray in a scrambling defensive line to score his try and gaps were opening up all over for the last quarter.Booing McCaw – the player himself said he had no problem facing it when he was in the sin bin, but it’s pretty grim booing him during his post-match, pitched interview.STATISTICS3 – McCaw’s yellow card was only the third he’s ever received in Testscenter_img 33 – The number of tackles missed by Argentina5 – The number of offloads made by Sonny Bill WilliamsSome start: Argentina started brilliantly, but fadedNew Zealand: B Smith; N Milner-Skudder (B Barrett 49), C Smith, M Nonu (SB Williams 45), J Savea; D Carter, A Smith (TJ Perenara 68); T Woodcock (W Crockett 45), D Coles (K Mealamu 68), O Franks (C Faumuina 49), B Retallick (V Vito 70), S Whitelock, J Kaino (S Cane 64), R McCaw, K Read.Tries (2): A Smith, Cane Cons: Carter 2 Pens: Carter 4Yellow cards: McCaw (29min), C Smith (37min)Argentina: J Tuculet (L Amorosino 69); S Cordero, M Bosch, JM Hernandez, J Imhoff; N Sanchez (De la Fuente 69), T Cubelli (M Landejo 61); M Ayerza, A Creevy (L Noguera Paz 69), N Tetaz Chaparro (R Herrera 54), G Petti (M Galarza 22), T Lavanini, P Matera (JM Leguizamon 58), JM Fernandez Lobbe, L Senatore (J Montoya 64).Tries (1): Petti Cons: Sanchez Pens: Sanchez 3Yellow card: P Matera (10min)Referee: Wayne Barnes (England)Man of the match: Brodie Retallick TAGS: Highlight last_img read more

Hotshot: Bath and England U20 back Tom de Glanville

first_imgThis article originally appeared in the August 2019 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Bath and England U20 back Tom de GlanvilleDate of birth 10 December 1999 Born Bath Club Bath Country England Position CentreWhat sports did you play growing up? Hockey, cricket, football, rugby… I started rugby at six or seven with Bath minis, my local club, and we played on an outfield that backed onto the Rec. I didn’t enjoy it at the start – I was shy and didn’t know anyone – so I stopped playing for a year or so, then my mum got me to go back and make friends.What do you like about rugby? Just the whole culture, being part of a group, the feeling you get winning with your mates.Who was your childhood hero? Jonny Wilkinson was for every kid my age. At Bath, there are players who have been there since I was growing up, so those are boys I look up to, like Tom Dunn.What positions have you played? I had a season at scrum-half, but the majority of my career has been at fly-half, and I’ve played centre and full-back. I’ve actually played everywhere in the back-line and I’m comfortable moving around, but I think I’ll settle at ten or 12. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS This youngster recently signed his first senior contract with Bathcenter_img What are your strengths? Probably having an influence on the team and being in the playmaking role. I enjoy chucking the ball and moving it out wide.Who’s been the biggest influence on you? There’s not one single person, just my family – all with different aspects. My brothers used to go into the garden chucking a ball around, the three of us together. Mum would drive me to games in the middle of nowhere when I was younger. Dad (ex-England captain Phil de Glanville) used to chat to me about the game and give me a helping hand.My older brother, Jake, is at Durham University – he has a passion for music – and my little brother, Ollie, is in the junior academy at Bath.What do you do away from rugby? I’m studying biology at Leeds University. I’m on loan at Otley there. Playing in National Two has been great, allowing me to ease into men’s rugby.RW VERDICT: De Glanville is preparing well for rugby by developing at Otley and preparing well for life after rugby with a degree. After competing for England U20 at the World Cup, he was given a senior contract by Bath and his focus will now turn to pre-season and pushing for game time.

The building was arranged along the long edge (Sixth Street) of the corner site in order to reserve a twenty foot sideyard for a sunny landscaped courtyard and garden. This configuration also allows the courtyard to be directly linked to the ground floor community room, kitchen, laundry and entrance on Oak Street. The courtyard garden is designed as a series of outdoor spaces from community to more private activities.Save this picture!© Tim GriffithThe high ceiling ground floor areas are surrounded by glass walls to enhance the visual connectivity of the community spaces and the public sidewalk. The footprint of the required on-site parking is reduced by the use of stacked parking lifts. The parking garage is wrapped with green screen panels that will create a living wall along the sidewalk and courtyard. In addition, planting beds are tucked under the street side of the building and double function as storm water retention tanks. By reducing the visual footprint of the ground floor level, the upper floors appear to float above which lightens their impact. The upper floors are organized into two parallel bands of apartments separated by a wide hallway combined with the fire stairs and elevators.Save this picture!© Tim GriffithThe ends of the hallways are open with large windows to provide views and introduce daylight. Many of the apartments are provided with balconies that are recessed into the building mass. On the south (red) façade, the balconies are part of a recessed zone that mitigates the visual and noise impact of the adjacent freeway at the same time providing solar shading. The variety of openings and plant supporting mesh panels provides a freeway scale composition. On the north (green) faced the opening configuration provides a scale and variety compatible with the adjacent residential neighborhood. The building’s color scheme accentuates the separation between the two bars of apartments and between the outer building “skin” and the internal balconies and voids. Save this picture!© Tim GriffithProject gallerySee allShow lessJinzhou New Area Medical Center / Design InitiativesArticles3rd China Architecture Media Awards CompetitionArticlesProject locationAddress:Oakland, California, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Iranian women’s rights activists win first Reporters Without Borders netizen prize with support from Google

first_img Help by sharing this information The nominees for this year’s prize were Yoani Sánchez (Cuba), Tan Zuoren (China), Tamer Mabrouk (Egypt), Ingushetiyaru.org (Russia) and Nguyen Tien Trung (Vietnam). Accepting the award, Parvin Ardalan said: “This prize is not just for single website. It rewards the efforts of all those who fight for free expression in Iran. Some of them are in prison. I dedicate this prize to them.” World Day Against Cyber-Censorship is celebrated every 12 March with the aim of rallying support for a single Internet without restrictions and accessible to all. Reporters Without Borders marks the event by issuing an updated version of its “Enemies of the Internet,” a list of the countries that are the worst offenders as regards restricting online access. Organisation RSF_en News Google senior vice-president David Drummond said: “Freedom of expression is fundamental for empowering individuals. At Google, we are working so that Internet users are given more information, more choice and more control in as many countries as possible. Supporting the Netizen Prize with Reporters Without Borders and rewarding the courage of the Change for Equality collective offer a new opportunity to promote what we believe in deeply.” Change for Equality was launched in September 2006 by a group of about 20 women, mostly bloggers and journalists, to promote a campaign for changes to laws that discriminate against women. Three and a half years later, the site has become an authoritative source of information about women’s rights in a society ruled by fundamentalists. The achievements of these online women’s rights activists include helping to challenge a bill making polygamy easier in September 2008 and helping to develop Iranian civil society. More than 50 of the movement’s activists have been summoned, arrested and jailed since the site’s launch. March 12, 2010 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Iranian women’s rights activists win first Reporters Without Borders netizen prize with support from Google More and more governments threaten online free expression and take concrete measures to limit it. Access to Google and YouTube is currently blocked in 25 countries. The press freedom organisation added: “The Iranian blogosphere is every active and deserves strong support. Without these courageous and determined netizens, we would be deprived of information that is essential for understanding our world.” The Reporters Without Borders Netizen Prize will be awarded annually to a blogger, online journalist or cyber-dissident who has helped to promote freedom of expression on the Internet. On the eve of World Day Against Cyber-Censorship and with support from Google, Reporters Without Borders today awarded the first “Netizen Prize” to the Iranian women’s rights activists of the Change for Equality (www.we-change.org) website. Journalist, blogger and activist Parvin Ardalan, one of the site’s founders, received the prize from French journalist Jean-Marie Colombani in a ceremony at the Paris headquarters of Google France. “We are very pleased that Iran’s women bloggers have been recognised by the first Netizen Prize,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Internet has been of enormous help in defending freedom and democracy in Iran since President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection last June. Most of the photos and video we have seen of the events in Iran were sent via the Internet.”last_img read more

Limerick HMV workers left high and dry in “conspiracy of lies”

first_imgNewsLimerick HMV workers left high and dry in “conspiracy of lies”By Alan Jacques – September 18, 2016 1074 Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads TAGSAnti Austerity AllianceCllr Cian PrendivilleFianna FáilHMVlimerickMinister Leo VaradkarNiall Collins TD Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Twitter FORMER staff of HMV in the Crescent Shopping Centre have been left without redundancy payments as the company entered liquidation just hours before their severance packages were due.Four HMV stores were closed at the end of August, three in Dublin and one in Limerick.Last week, the company reneged on their redundancy commitments to workers as it entered into liquidation.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Former HMV Limerick employee Robyn Long said the workers were promised they would receive their full redundancy on September 9. However, Larry Howard, the managing director of Hilco, the HMV owners, put the company into liquidation on the night of September 8.“This was a premeditated act, a calculated and despicable move to deny us our dues. Now, we will receive nothing from the company. The staff of HMV have been let down once again,” he said.Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Niall Collins described the company’s move to use the protection of liquidation to evade its redundancy commitments as “unfair and unjust”.“What happened is nothing short of scandalous. The State will now have to step in and provide basic statutory redundancy which, in some cases, may be considerably less than what they would have received if the company had paid them their redundancy,” said Deputy Collins, who is the party spokesman on jobs.“The company made a commitment to their former staff, and simply decided to renege on it. This is setting a very bad precedent, which cannot be allowed to take hold. It’s clearly unfair and places a larger burden on the State.”Social Protection Minister Leo Varadkar has promised that his department will deal promptly with redundancy and insolvency applications from former employees of HMV when they are received from the liquidator.“Employees who lose their jobs because of the liquidation of their company are entitled to statutory redundancy payments and to wage related payments due at the time of the liquidation,” he explained.Anti Austerity Alliance councillor Cian Prendiville condemned the owners of HMV, describing their actions as “pure gangster capitalism”.It seems Larry Howard and Hilco connived and conspired to lie to the workers to get them out the door, and then stabbed them in the back. The lesson for other workers is that they must be organised, and take action, like the HMV workers did when they occupied the store in a previous shutdown. We must demand changes in the law to prevent bosses treating their workers like this,” he declared.by Alan [email protected] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Linkedin Advertisement Print WhatsApp Facebook Previous articleSoccer – Limerick succumb to late St Pat’s blitz in EA Sports Cup finalNext articleCoaching – Top sporting personalities to line out for ‘Huddle Dublin’ Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Emaillast_img read more
