Leinster into the semis after seeing off Leicester Tigers

first_imgWednesday Apr 13, 2011 Leinster into the semis after seeing off Leicester Tigers Leinster were too strong at home for Leicester Tigers as they progressed to a Heineken Cup semi final meeting with Toulouse after beating the English side 17-10 at the Aviva Stadium on the weekend. The hosts were in control for most of the game, and while a late Tigers try gave them some hope of a comeback, Leinster showed their experience to hold on and take the deserved win. The Tigers came close to scoring a try through Alesana Tuilagi earlier in the game, but he was ruled to be in touch. It was a bit of justice as the pass that got him there looked suspiciously forward, as did one that started Isa Nacewas great try, but the Fijian got away with it, taking the chance brilliantly. “They are a good side. Did they deserve to win? The scoreboard says they did. We had opportunities. We didn’t take them,” said an unhappy Richard Cockerill of Leicester. “I can’t manage the referee if he’s not penalising tackle assists and not penalising guys for not entering through the gate. That’s up to him how he referees but it was refereed very differently to how the Test matches were refereed and refereed very differently to the Premiership.” Cockerill also took a potshot at Englands coaching setup. “Floody left us in the autumn at 80 per cent, worked with England and came back at less than that. You’ll have to ask England’s kicking coach Dave Aldred why.” “He’s changed his kicking style, which was news to us. We weren’t consulted at all.” Leinster will face Toulouse in the semi final, after they beat Biarritz 27-20 in San Sebastian.

Vicious stamp in France goes unpunished by federation despite shocking footage available

first_imgFriday Nov 15, 2019 Vicious stamp in France goes unpunished by federation despite shocking footage available A nasty stamp took place in France’s Federale 3 division last weekend, causing injury but going unpunished by the higher powers, despite shocking footage showing exactly what took place.ADVERTISEMENTThe match was between CJF Saint Malo and Trignac (red), and as can be seen in this shocking footage, the Trignac number ten inexplicably joins the ruck and stamps down on the Saint Malo flankers head.The flanker received 15 stitches but it could have been far worse if he did not have a scrum cap on.And yes, the referee missed it, and actually awarded the offending team a penalty.The club on the receiving end of the incident has posted the video online and tried to get the officials to take a sterner view, sending it on to the French Rugby Federation.As of now, the only punishment that appears to have been handed down is an internal suspension from Trignac, banning him until 2020 and ordering him to undergo a referee training course.ADVERTISEMENTCJF Saint Malo have stated that their reasons for sharing the footage is not to create further hatred towards that specific player, but rather to make sure that these type of acts get appropriately dealt with by the powers that be. As of yet, it seems that there is no news on that front. credit: CJF Saint-Malo Rugby Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

‘Your dad was a hero’: Police officer killed by train honored in heartbreaking funeral service

PO Conrad Gary and PO Eduardo Marmolejo. Always remember the names of our brave officers who were killed in the line of duty last night. #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/2WYQUOZo2m— Chicago Police (@Chicago_Police) December 18, 2018 The love and support from outside agencies at the funeral services for Fallen Chicago Police Officer Eduardo Marmolejo. #NeverForgotten #BrothersInBlue pic.twitter.com/cYx9d4F5t1— Chicago Police (@Chicago_Police) December 22, 2018 Chicago Police(CHICAGO) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was overcome with emotion Saturday as he reflected on the life and legacy of Chicago police officer Eduardo Marmolejo, who was struck and killed by a train in the line of duty Monday.Marmolejo, 36, is survived by his wife, who was his high school sweetheart, and their three daughters.“Your husband’s remarkable life and legacy will endure through your three incredible girls,” Emanuel said at Saturday’s funeral.The mayor wiped away tears as he recognized Marmolejo’s parents, who emigrated from Mexico.“He wanted to bring honor to their sacrifice they made,” the mayor said.Marmolejo’s oldest daughter, 15-year-old Rebecca, also spoke at the service, reading a letter she wrote to her father.“I miss you so much. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve cried just thinking of you,” she said. “I have so much to say and now there’s no time. I never knew what getting my heart broken felt like until now.”“Knowing that I’ll never get to hug or even see you again breaks my heart into a million pieces,” Rebecca continued through tears. “There’s no one else like you. I love you more than all the stars in the sky.”Rebecca also told those in attendance: “Please, when you go home, hug everyone that means something to you. Tell them you love them, because in the end it isn’t worth knowing you could’ve given more time and love and effort into that person.”During the service, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson vowed to be there for Marmolejo’s family, including every birthday, anniversary, holiday and graduation.“You’re not alone,” he said. “You will not be alone this Christmas, next Christmas, or the Christmas after that.”“You’ve gained an entire department of guardian angels,” he added.To Marmolejo’s daughters, Johnson said, “Your dad was a hero. … He’s a man that everyone here should aspire to be.”Marmolejo, who joined the police department in 2016, and fellow officer Conrad Gary were chasing a suspected gunman when they were both hit and killed by a train Monday night. The suspected gunman was later taken into custody.Marmolejo and Gary were “running towards the sound of gunshots,” Johnson said, “dedicated to getting another gun off the streets of Chicago.”Johnson called Marmolejo an “exemplary police officer,” who displaced “bravery, heroism and sacrifice.”“Officers Marmolejo and Gary stepped up on our behalf, and placed themselves in harm’s way to protect all of us,” he said. Gary was laid to rest on Friday. Marmolejo and Gary were the third and fourth Chicago police officers to die in the line of duty this year.
