Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_img Key man: Munster’s CJ Stander scores his sides second try. (Photo: Inpho) Flashpoint: Parling lies prone (right) next to Barrington, with Barritt in the centre (Getty Images)The SinnersBrad Barritt and Ian TempestSaracens prop Richard Barrington was sent off for knocking out Geoff Parling with a high hit in the early stages of Saturday’s Aviva Premiership clash with Exeter Chiefs. But Parling’s head only hit Barrington’s shoulder because Brad Barritt had already walloped the Chiefs lock with a swinging left arm, so how Barritt stayed on the pitch for the remainder of the game is anyone’s guess.Referee Ian Tempest looked at the video replays and as soon as he realised Barrington’s shoulder had done the most damage he just dismissed Barritt’s part in the incident. Barrington deserved to be sent off, but Barritt should have gone too – and the England centre looked mighty relieved to get away with it.Annoyingly for Exeter, Barritt went on to play a major part in the 13-13 draw, as one of Saracens’ outstanding players on the day. Michael Rhodes and Alex LozowskiSaracens had to play for 70 minutes against Exeter Chiefs with 14 men after having Richard Barrington sent off, but managed to eke out a 13-13 draw, thanks partly to magnificent defence from flanker Michael Rhodes and fly-half Alex Lozowski.With his Exeter team leading 10-3, Don Armand charged up the right from outside the 22. Chris Wyles attempted to tackle him into touch but Armand was still set to score, only for Rhodes to dive in and knock the ball out of his hands at the last second.Wonder-try: Jack Nowell dives in at the corner for Exeter against Saracens. (Photo: Getty Images)Lozowski had already made a terrific try-saving tackle on Thomas Waldrom and he put in another big hit on Sam Hill. Lozowski also controlled the game well in attack for Saracens, outshining the Chiefs’ Gareth Steenson who unwisely set himself up for a drop-goal from almost halfway with three minutes of the match remaining. If had waited a few more phases, an easier chance might have been created.An honourable mention must go to Jack Nowell for scoring a terrific try. The Chiefs wing leapt up and stretched out his right hand to gather a kick from Steenson then dived and reached to touch it down in the corner. It was a piece of confident skill any winger would be proud of. CJ StanderMunster put Racing 92 to the sword in their rearranged European Champions Cup clash, trouncing their hosts 32-7. The whole Munster team did their late coach Anthony Foley proud – the match had been postponed from the weekend of his death in October – but CJ Stander was the stand-out performer.The No 8 was everywhere in attack, carrying 23 times, making 63 metres and beating four defenders. He found the time and energy to make eight tackles as well. None of his Munster team mates made it into double-figures for carries and Stander was deservedly named Man of the Match. Running man: Tommy Seymour’s pace was too much for Cardiff. (Photo: Inpho)Tommy SeymourWing Tommy Seymour was on fire in Glasgow Warriors’ 29-15 Guinness Pro12 triumph over Cardiff Blues. He wasn’t among the try-scorers but Seymour helped create two tries for full-back Peter Murchie in the second half. For the first he cut a terrific line from the Blues’ ten metre line and sprinted up to the 22 and from there Glasgow turned the pressure into a try.Just seven minutes later Seymour burst through the defence again, this time from the 22, scorching from right to left and allowing Murchie to finish off the move.Seymour’s pace, timing and judgement were too much for the Blues and Scotland fans will hope he carries this form into the RBS Six Nations next month. Outstanding: Jason Woodward created and scored a great try for Bristol. (Photo: Getty Images)Jason Woodward and Louis PicamolesNorthampton beat Bristol 32-26 but Bristol’s Kiwi full-back Jason Woodward almost earned the visitors a memorable win at Franklin’s Gardens.With his team trailing just 21-16 after 51 minutes, Woodward got the ball inside his 22 and dinked a kick up the left wing for Tom Varndell to chase. The wing gathered it and Woodward sprinted up in support, so he was on hand to take a well-timed pass from Varndell as they crossed the Northampton ten-metre line. From there Woodward easily outpaced Luther Burrell and scored the try which put Bristol 23-21 ahead. Sadly for them they couldn’t hang on, but Woodward is making Bristol a force to be reckoned with.Louis Picamoles is among the Saints for a fantastic charging run which set up Tom Wood’s try. The Frenchman handed off and barged through no less than five defenders to open the door for Wood. Flying Falcon: Vereniki Goneva on the attack for Newcastle v Bath. (Photo: Getty Images)Vereniki Goneva and Joel HodgsonNewcastle Falcons scored two tries in the last eight minutes of their Aviva Premiership clash with Bath to come from 22-10 down to win 24-22. Fly-half Joel Hodgson played a big part in their fightback, sticking to the game plan, kicking out of hand well to put Bath under pressure and converting the last two tries to make sure the Falcons’ efforts resulted in a win. The Saints LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img TAGS: Highlight On the charge: Olly Cracknell had a terrific game for the Ospreys. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency)Olly CracknellAshley Beck scored the bonus-point try for the Ospreys in their 29-7 trouncing of Connacht, thanks to a fine floated pass from Dan Biggar, but Olly Cracknell was arguably the most influential player for the Welsh region.The blindside seemed to be all over the pitch in this win, which enabled the Ospreys to go top in the Pro12. He carried the ball in the lead-up to Dan Baker’s opening try, then scored one of his own two minutes later with a powerful break from the 22. Cracknell was involved again in the build-up to the Ospreys’ third try, which Nicky Smith scored.Steve Tandy’s team are not short of back-row riches, but the 22-year-old is standing up to be counted. Will CliffBristol scrum-half Will Cliff has done plenty of good work for his team in the past but he made a costly error during Saturday’s Aviva Premiership clash with Northampton.With 54 minutes gone, Bristol had just taken a 23-21 lead and needed to consolidate. Stephen Myler kicked the restart long into the Bristol 22, Cliff tried a clearance kick but JJ Hanrahan was far too close for comfort and the Northampton centre charged the kick down, collected it and scored the simplest of tries. That put the Saints back in front again and Bristol were unable to seize back the initiative. Which players were the heroes for their teams in the Aviva Premiership, Guinness Pro12 and Champions Cup matches, and who needs to make an extra effort next time? Newcastle’s announcerThe Newcastle fans took a bit of stick on social media on Friday evening for noisily jeering George Ford as he lined up a penalty kick. However, for me the greater sinner was the PA announcer at Kingston Park, who kept shouting out during passages of play.“Let’s turn up the volume…make some NOISE” he hollered, as Newcastle attacked the Bath line. I might be old fashioned, but I tend to think that if the Falcons supporters aren’t inspired enough by the excitement on the pitch to cheer and shout of their own accord, it is a pretty sad state of affairs. I wish the PA guy would stick to announcing scorers and replacements and leave the players to whip their supporters into a frenzy. Vereniki Goneva was also outstanding. He picked up from a ruck inside the 22, charged through a gap and stepped Anthony Watson to score Newcastle’s first try, and he helped create their match-winning score with a terrific break up the left wing. Goneva battered his way through Semesa Rokoduguni and Watson and from the subsequent pressure position Ben Harris crashed over for the try. A cut above? Max Lahiff’s eye-catching hair style (left). (Photo: Getty Images)Max LahiffThe Bath prop’s hair style has evolved in recent months from a standard “high and tight” to something a bit more outlandish. A top-knot now sits on the back of his head and the back and sides are shaved almost clean. Time to make an appointment at the salon of shame, I feel!last_img read more

Prop Taniela Tupou gets past two All Blacks as he flies down the wing for Reds try

first_imgFriday May 18, 2018 Prop Taniela Tupou gets past two All Blacks as he flies down the wing for Reds try The Hurricanes edged the Queensland Reds earlier today with a hard-fought 38-34 win in Wellington. Both sides scored some top quality tries, but fan-favourite Taniela Tupou caught the eye with this impressive effort in the second half. The dynamic front rower showed that famed power down the left wing as he fended off All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder with ease, then got past [usually] tough-tackling scrumhalf TJ Perenara.The inside ball for Jordan Petaia set him away, after Tupou himself had scored from close range earlier in the match, giving the visitors their first of four tries on the night. Post match, a disappointed Reds coach Brad Thorn was asked about Tupou’s progress to a well rounded professional rugby player. “He’s a big lad… 133kg or whatever but there are big lads all around the world, and they know how to tackle, so once you get to the top level and everyone knows how to tackle, you want to have a complete game. I guess he was searching for that complete game. “So for a tight head prop, scrummaging is a great foundation – become the best in the world, become world class. Your lifting in the lineout, your kick-off work, your break down, your defence. Just your rugby smarts, your skillsets.“It’s great. He’s at the beginning, with a tight head, perhaps a 15 year career. He’s just a youngster at the moment and he’s got that special x-factor about him which is really cool. It’s all part of it.” See Tupou’s run below and you can watch the match highlights under thatPerenara said after the match that it’s a tackle he should have made, regardless of the player. “I just missed the tackle.. It’s a tackle I’ve got to make regardless of who that is out there.“I’d usually probably go for a tackle to take him out, I went for a passive tackle to try to chop him and a player like that, he’s explosive, he’s powerful and you’ve got to put a bit of body in front of him than that.”The Reds bounced back from their embarassing 63-28 loss to the Sunwolves last weekend to put in a far stronger showing, against the league leaders. The losing bonus point and the manner in which they tested the Hurricanes pleased coach Thorn. But it was the Hurricanes 10th straight victory and the 40th straight win for a New Zealand Super Rugby team over and Australian Super Rugby team. Home winger Ben Lam scored another two tries, further cementing his chances of selection for the All Blacks. He has now scored 14 tries in this campaign, one short of the Super Rugby record. MATCH HIGHLIGHTS:credit: sanzaarADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Although she will be mainly working solo, she said she planned to work with others where appropriate and pull teams together to develop and carry out new research projects. Advertisement Pharoah sets up own research consultancy She said there is still a lot of scope for research on giving as so little is known about it. Research has gone into measuring giving, but we still know very little about why people give and the impact of different fundraising techniques, as well as the difference between major philanthropy and small-scale giving, she said.Pharoah’s colleague at CAF Catherine Walker has also left the organisation. With Adrian Sargeant moving from Bristol Business School to the US this month, this potentially leaves a medium-term gap in research terms for the fundraising sector. center_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

In NCAA tennis matches, the team who wins four matches first is the official victor, but in some cases the coaches agree to finish out the matches anyway.After three consecutive doubles losses against Florida, Mississippi State and North Carolina, the Horned Frogs flipped a switch.

Photo by Jack WallaceThe No. 26 nationally-ranked team of senior Reese Stalder and sophomore Bertus Kruger won a close match against the No. 49 doubles team, 7-5. Senior Alex Rybakov and junior Alastair Gray followed with a very quick 6-0 win to clinch.“I felt the doubles was a good sign,” head coach David Roditi said. “I like the way the guys came out: energetic, focused, aggressive.”In singles, every Horned Frog won in straight sets except Stalder, who was down 0-6, 0-3 in the second set but came back to win in three sets. “Reese is an intellectual player,” Roditi said. “Sometimes the intellectual part can be a double-edged sword: it can play against him or for him, and today I think he was overthinking a bit. That was definitely a highlight of today: Reese being able to step back and realize that if he made a couple adjustments the match could change, and it did.”Alex Rybakov readies his strike of the ball against Rice on March 2, 2019.

The Brit won in convincing fashion: 6-3, 6-4. This is his fourth singles win in a row, all of which coming in straight sets.“It shows how far Alastair has come along,” Roditi said. “It wasn’t a match last year, so it was great to see.”Freshman Luc Fomba continues to impress at the No. 5 singles spot, earning himself a straight-set win over Illinois this weekend, adding to his wins against UCLA, Mississippi State and Florida. His current record is 8-2, 2-0 against ranked opponents.“He’s got a very chill but competitive vibe about him,” Roditi said. “He can be very tough to play on these indoor courts. I thought he did a great job of using his power and his serve to win that match.”Difficult Competition Doesn’t Faze FrogsThis weekend’s wins puts the Frogs at a 9-3 overall record with wins over the No. 3, 7, 11, 20, and 30 ranked teams.

Limerick highest in country for patients on trollies

first_imgNewsBreaking newsLimerick highest in country for patients on trolliesBy Staff Reporter – August 20, 2015 585 Andrew Care[email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE University Hospital Limerick has the highest number of patients waiting on trollies in the country this Thursday with 47 people waiting to to be admitted to the hospital as patients experience long delays.The overcrowding situation is further compounded with the unexpected large numbers presenting in the Emergency department of the Dooradoyle facility where some members of the public say they’ve been waiting for over seven hours.Limerick’s 47 patients on trollies is made up of 13 on the wards and 34 in the trolley ward.Nationally, some 319 patients are on trollies with Beaumont Hospital the next highest with 36 patients on trollies.The numbers of patients together with the delays experienced is in line with the review findings on the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) who analysed the July Trolley/Ward Watch figures and found that 6715 admitted patients,were on trolleys during the past month.This represents a 21 per cent increase, on July 2014, and is the highest ever level of overcrowding recorded for the month of July.INMO general secretary Liam Doran said:“This volume of overcrowding, in our country’s hospitals, during the month of July is unprecedented and cannot be allowed to continue. The additional funding for the Fair Deal scheme, with the reduction in the number of delayed discharges, is most welcome but, obviously, is not enough to deal with the system wide problem.“The health service must be given an additional funding allocation which will allow it, without waiting for the coming winter period or the next financial year, to open additional beds, with extra staffing, immediately”.Mr. Doran concluded: “It must be remembered that these figures represent individual people, who require admission to hospital, and their loss of dignity, privacy and access to care in an appropriate environment, cannot be forgotten and should be our priority. We must now agree sustained actions leading to increased capacity for the health service to deal properly, and safely with every person who presents for care and attention”.A spokesperson from the HSE at the University Hospital Limerick said that the Emergency Department at University Hospital Limerick has seen an unexpected increase in patients presenting over the last number of days which has resulted in high numbers of patients waiting on trolleys and long delays.“UL Hospitals Group apologises that any patient has to wait to be admitted, delivery of the best possible care for patients is our priority from the moment of presentation.   Staff across the Group, are working hard to ensure the optimum care and safety of all our patients during this very busy period.“Amongst the factors contributing to the increase in pressure within the ED is the older age profile of patients presenting along with the complexity of issues they have.   In addition, refurbishment work is underway in one of our in-patient wards to bring the facilities up to HIQA standards, with work due to be completed in November.  The temporary closure of this ward means that the number of beds available for in-patients in UHL has been reduced.The UL Hospitals Group said that the escalation plan has been enacted and among the measures taken to relieve pressure on the ED and reduce waiting times, are the transfer of suitable patients from UHL to Ennis Hospital, Nenagh Hospital and St John’s Hospital; the transfer of appropriate patients to community care settings; and better communication with GPs to ensure patients are referred to the ED only where appropriate.“The UL Hospitals Group encourages visitors to adhere to visitor times; 2-4pm and 6:30-8:30pm with a maximum of two visitors per patient.  Children under 14 years are advised not to visit.“Patients are reminded to keep the ED for emergencies only and to contact their GP or GP Out of Hours services in the first instance.  Local Injury Units are open in Ennis and Nenagh Hospitals from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Sunday and 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday at St. John’s Hospital.  Patients aged 5 years+ with minor injuries; for example suspected broken bones in arm or lower leg, sprains, strains, minor scalds, burns or cuts are encouraged to visit their Local Injury Units for treatment.“UL Hospitals Group recently announced that contracts had been signed with John Sisk & Son Ltd for the fit-out and completion of the new emergency department and a state-of-the-art new dialysis unit. It is anticipated that the new emergency department, which will be treble the size of the existing facility, will open in the first quarter of 2017.“It is acknowledged that further interim measures will have to be taken to address capacity issues until the new ED opens. To this end, UL Hospitals has reached agreement for additional funding to open 25 extra beds in November to support activity levels in our emergency department at University Hospital Limerick,” the statement concluded.

Event aims to help SHARE organization

first_imgHome Local News Event aims to help SHARE organization Facebook WhatsApp Local News Event aims to help SHARE organization Pinterest Albertsons Market Street is a longtime sponsor and participant in the Autism SHARE Walk, set for 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 28 at Grande Communications Stadium, 801 N. Loop 250 West in Midland, the release said.Albertsons will provide manpower and food for the SHARE Walk, the release said. SHARE stands for Sharing Hands: A Respite Experience.Jameson said this was the first year the stores have supported the SHARE Walk in this way.“I’m excited because not everybody can make the walk and put a team together, but this way everybody that comes into the grocery store can contribute a little or a lot as they’re checking out. It gives the autism SHARE Walk an opportunity to reach more of the public,” Jameson said.The Rev. Tom Jones, executive director of SHARE, said Albertsons stores have helped the SHARE Walk grow from 300 people to an expected 3,000 to 4,000 later this month.“All the funds that are raised through our autism walks stay local. They help SHARE provide support services for families that have kids with disabilities,” Jones said.Some of the services include respite care that allows families to spend time on their relationships and keep their families healthy.“We also provide family support programs, holiday events for our families, as well as parent support groups. Finally, we offer support for the siblings. They’re the ones who are forgotten so often. We give them support and help them build a support system of other brothers and sisters that are in similar situations,” Jones said.CBS 7 anchor Jay Hendricks read a proclamation for autism awareness and special needs recognition month, through April 30. Hendricks said this is the ninth year for the walk.Last year, SHARE served more than 200 families with its programs.“Our locations where we provide services are in Midland and Odessa, but we have families that come from Andrews, Crane and other smaller towns that don’t have the resources. We serve 19 counties in West Texas. If they’re willing to come to SHARE in Midland-Odessa, we’ll serve them,” Jones said.“We’re working to try to find ways to provide some services in those smaller towns, maybe some in-home respite care that we can provide. We’re trying to reach out into the community where there aren’t very many resources and have some support for those families that live there,” Jones said.SHARE has six full-time and one part-time employee and uses about 100 volunteers year-round. Jones said they also have 40 contract workers who provide care on Friday nights. Twice a month in Midland and once a month in Odessa, parents can drop their children and brothers and sisters.Classes are offered for each one of them with about three to five youngsters per class. They are supervised by two to three adults and activities such as movies, games and crafts are offered, Jones said.This is offered so parents can go on a date.“Some of our parents have not been out on a date in years because there’s nobody to watch their kids. It gives them a chance to focus on their relationships and it’s really just a gift of time that they can use to rest, or connect with friends. They use it for different purposes. It helps them relieve stress and it does improve relationships,” Jones said.
