Leicester v Saracens: The Preview

Centre point: Anthony Allen breaks through the Saracens defence during Leicester’s 20-19 win at Vicarage RoadBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorWELFORD ROAD will hold no fear for Saracens when they play Leicester in the second of the Aviva Premiership semi-finals on Saturday. After all, the defending English champions have won on their last three visits to the ground, including a 50-25 thumping of the Tigers when they met earlier in the season.However, the Leicester side hoping to take the club to an eighth straight Premiership final is vastly different to the one that succumbed to Saracens back in September. Just one member of the starting back-line remains – Anthony Allen – for this match and three of the pack – George Chuter, Julian Salvi and Steve Mafi. There are just three changes to the Saracens XV that scored six tries at Welford Road at the start of the season.Leicester have recovered well, however, after struggling in early season with so many players away at the World Cup and have reeled off ten straight wins in all competitions. So can Saracens stop that run and beat the Tigers to repeat their final feat from last season?Man mountain: Manu TuilagiAll-out attack v pragmatismOne of the most startling statistics when looking ahead to this match is that Leicester have scored twice as many tries as Saracens in the Premiership this season – 70 to 35 – and picked up nine try-scoring bonus points. In fact, the Tigers have the best try-scoring record in the league, 17 ahead of next-best Harlequins.In contrast, Saracens have one of the best defensive records – conceding just 30 tries in 22 games, which is just one more than Bath.So it’s a classic case of attack v defence. Leicester will be looking to use the power of the Tuilagi brothers to fracture the Sarries defence and then the guile of Geordan Murphy and Anthony Allen to get across the line. But some of their high-risk tactics might provide Saracens with prime counter-attacking ball.Set-piece set-doThis match sees two of the game’s top lineout exponents go head-to-head in Steve Borthwick and Geoff Parling. Both men do their homework when it comes to the lineout and will be looking to unsettle each other’s calls. Whoever comes out on top in that battleground will have a say in the result as quality lineout ball has proven a key provider of tries this season.As for the scrum, Leicester will be looking to get an edge up front. Dan Cole gets a first shot at disrupting Rhys Gill and they also have Martin Castrogiovanni on the bench. Sarries’ prop cover is not quite as strong, with John Smit a far better hooker than he is a prop. If the Tigers do get the upper hand at scrum time, expect to see Thomas Waldrom putting in his trademark surges. TAGS: Leicester TigersSaracens Kicking king: Owen FarrellKicking duelToby Flood has admitted he’s frustrated at being usurped as England’s No 10 by Owen Farrell. While Saracens’ young dynamo is starting this game at 13 with Charlie Hodgson at fly-half, the accuracy of his boot will be crucial to his club’s final ambitions. He will punish any penalty infringement, be it kicking for territory or the posts.Flood has more creativity in his skill-set, but if this is a tight game – as the last two finals have been – his goalkicking is what could prove most decisive.VERDICTLeicester are the form team in the Premiership right now and should beat Saracens – but the London side will put up a strong fight. I’m saying Tigers by 12.

France wing Damian Penaud: “He is a free spirit”

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rougerie probably saw in Penaud a bit of himself as a young player. He made his debut for the club aged 18 in 1999 and 16 years later he was a living legend among the Yellow Army. If Rougerie was on Penaud’s case that first season it was because he saw potential.“He eventually got the message,” he reflects. “He no longer arrived at the last minute and he started applying himself in the weights room, something he’s not crazy about. I made clear to him that if he wanted to survive in a sport becoming ever more confrontational and less about evasion, his body had to be his armour.”At the same time that Penaud was being schooled at Clermont by the likes of Rougerie and Lopez, he was also learning his craft under Lièvremont with the France U20 squad. “Damian is more interested in the ball than by defence,” he once said of his young charge. “But I can tell you that when he gets it into his head to defend, he can do some serious damage to his opponent.”If Rougerie played the bad cop with Penaud, then the good cop was Benson Stanley, the ex-All Black who spent five seasons at Clermont. “Rougerie is the hard taskmaster whereas Stanley is more paternal,” said coach Franck Azéma.Azéma’s assessment came in June 2017, on the eve of Penaud’s Test debut against South Africa. A fortnight earlier Penaud, then 20, had inspired Clermont to the Top 14 title against Toulon. Deep in his own 22, his audacious breakout led to the length-of-the-field try dotted down by Alivereti Raka – one of the greatest tries seen in a Top 14 final.Les Bleus lost 37-15 in Durban but Penaud marked his first cap with a try and four more followed in his next 15 Tests. All but that opening score have come from the wing, where Penaud has been selected since November 2018. That match, also against the Boks, was his first cap in 12 months after a broken foot sidelined him for a lengthy spell.In his absence, Guy Novès had been sacked as head coach and replaced by Jacques Brunel, who himself is no more. The new man in charge is Fabien Galthié and it’s fair to say he doesn’t share Penaud’s laid-back character.Demanding, brusque and a perfectionist, Galthié is known for his ‘no-fools’ approach. How he handles the mercurial Penaud will not only be fascinating, it will be vital for the French squad going forward into what the nation desperately hopes is a new and brighter future. The early signs are good with France three from three in the Six Nations and chasing a first Grand Slam since 2010.Related: Moody Bleu! Can enigmatic Fabien Galthie restore glory to France?It’s a sign of the young talent now emerging in France that Penaud will soon be one of the old hands, and the shy and slovenly teenager who ambled into the Clermont dressing room in 2015 will be expected to set an example to his younger team-mates.Nicknamed ‘The Phenomenon’, Penaud lived up to his billing in being named the Best French International of 2018-19 at a recent awards ceremony. It was a well-deserved honour but perhaps the most significant accolade came from Rougerie when he retired the previous season. “His maturity has amazed me,” he said of the man who has replaced him as the idol of the Clermont faithful.The boy has become a man, and Penaud has the gifts to become one of the greats. This article originally appeared in the March 2020 issue of Rugby World magazine. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Livewire: Damian Penaud gestures while in action for France (Getty Images) center_img France wing Damian Penaud: “He is a free spirit”Damian Penaud doesn’t like doing interviews but fortunately there are enough anecdotes around to flesh out the most exciting young threequarter in French rugby.What’s clear is that were the 23-year-old French wing any more laid-back he’d be horizontal. One of his early mentors at Clermont, Aurélien Rougerie, recalled his first impressions of Penaud: “He would arrive late to training, wearing flip-flops and with one eye still closed. He was ridiculously talented but he wasn’t making the most of his opportunity.”Another Clermont team-mate, Yohan Beheregaray, diplomatically described Penaud as “not a morning person”. He recalls how he would “saunter into training in his flip-flops, in the nick of time”. Once on the pitch Penaud would come into conflict with Camille Lopez for forgetting the calls for backs’ moves.Was it insouciance or a lack of maturity? Beheregaray remembers squad outings to restaurants where Penaud would spend half an hour in the gents playing games on his iPhone, and trips to the golf course where a poor shot would result in a club being hurled down the fairway.Club duty: Damian Penaud in action for Clermont Auvergne (Getty Images)According to Beheregaray, Rougerie would occasionally have to act like a “policeman”, straightening out the errant youngster and reminding him of his responsibilities as a professional athlete. Rougerie has long since retired and, while Penaud has got his act together, a hint of mischief remains. A few months ago a video went viral in France of Penaud using his false teeth to discover if he’d won anything with a scratchcard.But one shouldn’t complain. In recent years the colour has drained from professional rugby in France to the point where players just seem to parrot cliches about ‘respect’, ‘values’ and ‘hard work’; all very admirable but where are the game’s characters? The Blancos, Mesnels, Charvets and Champs?Ironically, Penaud’s dad hailed from this generation but he wasn’t known as one of the more flamboyant players. Capped 32 times by France in the 1990s, Alain Penaud was a rather plodding fly-half, best known to British rugby fans for managing to stick just one year of a three-year contract at Saracens.“I am disappointed that I am unable to continue to play for Saracens,” said Penaud in 1999, “but I must listen to my wife and young son Damian.”Thomas Lièvremont played in the same France team as Alain, then coached Damian at U20 level in the 2016 Junior World Cup. “There’s no similarity with his father, who was a strategist with a fantastic kicking game,” says Lièvremont when asked to compare the pair.“Damian is a free spirit… One has to allow him his liberty. He likes to have the ball, to look for the space. I can’t think of anyone to whom I can compare him. He’s a unique player.”What father and son do have in common is Brive. Alain began his career at the unfashionable club in 1987 and a decade later the minnows became the masters, beating Leicester to win the European Cup.Damian came through the Brive ranks but despite his raw talent his demeanour was indecipherable to the club and he was released in 2015. Clermont didn’t hesitate. They knew a rough diamond when they saw one.Mentor: Damian Penaud talks to Aurelien Rougerie (Getty Images)Former France and Clermont wing Julien Malzieu described Penaud as “very introverted” when he arrived at Stade Marcel Michelin, hardly surprising given his youth and the fact he was now rubbing shoulders with some of the most recognisable faces in French rugby: Rougerie, Lopez, Wesley Fofana, Morgan Parra and Benjamin Kayser. He may be laid-back and quiet off the pitch, but he certainly knows how to make an impact when he crosses the whitewashlast_img read more

Foto/Sharon Sheridan[Episcopal New Service — Indianápolis] Cuando Caroline Christie asistió a la Convención General de 2009 con un grupo de otros estudiantes de secundaria de la Diócesis Episcopal de Newark, ella no sabía qué esperar.“Yo simplemente iba porque mis amigos iban”, dice. “No sabía que la Iglesia Episcopal era tan grande, ni todo lo que hacía. Fue realmente una experiencia que me abrió los ojos”.Y ello le abrió el apetito para más. Christie regresa a la 77ª. Convención Anual como diputada laica electa a los 17 años, para representar a la Diócesis de Newark, junto con Gibson Oakley, que tenía 16 años cuando fue electo en enero de 2011.Elegir a dos diputados jóvenes en una diócesis es “inusual pero no único”, dijo el Rdo. Canónigo Gregory Straub, funcionario ejecutivo y secretario de la Convención.La mayoría de los diputados tienen más edad. Este año 12 de ellos son menores de 25, y 20 con edades de 25 a 34, dijo Bonnie Anderson, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados.Pero los jóvenes adultos tienen una presencia constante y visible en la Convención General, desde diputados jóvenes hasta miembros de la Presencia Oficial de la Juventud de la Iglesia Episcopal y desde la Presencia de Jóvenes Adultos de la Hermandad Episcopal de la Paz hasta grupos de jóvenes que asisten como [delegados] de diócesis individuales.Caroline Christie, de la Diócesis de Newark, asistirá como diputada a su primera Convención General acompañada de su abuela, la primera diputada suplente Marge Christie, quien ha sido diputada o suplente desde 1976. Foto/ Sharon SheridanMuchos diputados jóvenes experimentan por primera vez la Convención General como parte de la presencia oficial de la juventud, compuesta de 18 jóvenes —dos por provincia— que tienen voz pero no voto en la Cámara de Diputados. Anderson redactó la resolución que creó a este grupo en 1982.“No creo que hubiera tanta conciencia entonces como hay ahora acerca de la necesidad y deseo y auténtica esperanza de tener más jóvenes en la Cámara de Diputados, porque ahora los jóvenes están siendo elegidos, mientras entonces un joven sencillamente no conseguía que lo eligieran”, dijo Anderson. “Eso es de cierto modo lo que creó la necesidad”“Creo que ahora hay un ansia en las diócesis —en algunas de ellas, desde luego— de elegir diputados más jóvenes”, agregó.Straub fue de la misma opinión.“No tengo la menor duda de que especialmente en los últimos años ha habido un incentivo en las diócesis para que los jóvenes aspiren y las convenciones diocesanas elijan a diputados jóvenes”, afirmó.La Diócesis de Chicago eligió a Ian Hallas, actualmente de 22 años, como primer diputado suplente en 2006 y como diputado en 2009 y 2012. La diócesis suele “brindar todo su apoyo” a los jóvenes, no porque sean “el futuro de la Iglesia, sino porque ya son una parte presente de la Iglesia”, dijo. Él visitó por primera vez la Convención General en 2003 siendo alumno de octavo grado y como parte del Evento de la Juventud Episcopal.El proceso legislativo “y todas las Reglas Parlamentarias de Robert” captaron su atención. “Me interesé realmente en la logística de cómo el organismo se congrega y funciona y logra hacer cosas con unos 850 diputados electos… Disfruté prestando atención y viendo cómo se construían las cosas y se aunaban los esfuerzos”.El habló por primera vez en el pleno de la Cámara de Diputados a instancias de su diputación cuando Katharine Jefferts Schori fue electa obispa presidente en 2006. “No tenía idea qué decir, pero yo la apoyaba a ella y creía que eso era estupendo”, afirmó. “Resultó muy estimulante”.En 2009, con ayuda de su diócesis y la Consulta de Chicago, estuvo entre un número limitado de oradores a quienes les permitieron hablar sobre una resolución para rechazar la Resolución B033 de 2006, vista generalmente como una moratoria de facto en la consagración de obispos homosexuales. “Yo era sin duda la persona más joven en decir algo”, apuntó Hallas, quien describió su intervención de entonces como “un momento definitorio para mí en esa cámara”.En Newark, Christie y Oakley se reunieron por primera vez con el resto de la diputación diocesana para prepararse para la Convención.“Yo estaba realmente sorprendido. A todos nos trataron de la misma manera” como a los demás diputados, dijo Christie. “En mi experiencia, cuando nombran a gente joven, usualmente lo hacen para probar que hay jóvenes que participan. En verdad sentí que teníamos una voz y que estábamos allí como genuinos miembros de la diputación y para hablar y tener un propósito”.En la Convención, ella seguirá en particular la labor del Comité Nacional e Internacional de Responsabilidad Social.Gibson Oakley consulta algo con su colega la diputada Laura Russell, durante la Convención Diocesana de Newark en enero. Foto/ Sharon SheridanLiza Anderson, que acaba de cumplir 30 años, siguió de cerca las dos últimas convenciones y creó y compartió un resumen del Libro Azul en preparación para ésta, la primera a que ella asistirá.Ella era nueva para la Diócesis de Connecticut cuando fue electa para servir de diputada en Indianápolis.“Creo que lo único que sabían era que yo era una muchacha joven que estaba haciendo un doctorado en Yale”, dice ella. “Creo que fui electa porque era joven. En alguna medida, eso es frustrante”.Ser miembro de un grupo demográfico escasamente representado también constituye una presión. Cuando los jóvenes hablan, dice Liza Anderson, “la gente quiere interpretar todo lo que dices como si hablaras por todos los jóvenes adultos… Somos tan diversos como cualquier otro grupo demográfico”.Una voz de acogidaMegan Anderson de la Diócesis del Norte de California sirvió como diputada en 2009 y es codirigente de la presencia de jóvenes adultos de la Hermandad Episcopal de la Paz en Indianápolis. Ella visitó la convención por primera vez a través del Evento de la Juventud Episcopal en 2003, cuando tenía 15 años, y luego fue miembro de la presencia oficial de la juventud en 2006. “Yo en verdad sí sentí que me tomaron en serio y me escucharon”, afirma.“Un punto de entrada difícil, especialmente cuando eres parte de estas presencias, es la tendencia de la gente a verte como a otro grupo de presión”, afirma. “Lleva un poquito [de tiempo] hacer que la gente tome a un joven como algo más que una persona joven, porque resultamos muy raros. Pero una vez que logras sobreponer ese obstáculo inicial, las personas son personas, y eso es sólo una parte de mis maravillosas experiencias”.Los diputados mayores sí escuchan atentamente las palabras de los más jóvenes, dijo Bonnie Anderson. “Creo que los escuchan por la esperanza y expectativas que los diputados más viejos tienen de que algo nuevo y apasionante saldrá de ellos”.Del mismo modo, la cámara le presta cuidadosa atención a la presencia oficial de la juventud, dijeron ella y Straub.“La presencia oficial de la juventud tiene una enorme autoridad en la cámara”, afirmó [Anderson]. “Los diputados le prestan mucha atención a lo que ellos tienen que decir”.“Yo también les invito a elegir a dos miembros de la presencia de la juventud para hablarle a la cámara, de manera que tienen una oportunidad que los diputados no tienen”, agregó. “Son muy valiosos para la Cámara de Diputados. Y también invité a jóvenes entre los 18 y 30 años de edad a hacer un vídeo de 90 segundos que voy a mostrar en la cámara durante las pausas. La pregunta es: ¿Qué sueñas para el futuro de la Iglesia?”Dos miembros de la presencia de la juventud también hablaran ante la Cámara de Obispos y la Reunión Trienal de las Mujeres Episcopales, dijo Bronwyn Clark Skov, funcionaria encargada del ministerio de los jóvenes.Los miembros de la presencia de la juventud no se avergüenzan de hablar en público, apuntó Straub.“Si imaginamos la presencia de la juventud como una diócesis, ninguna diócesis va al micrófono más a menudo que la presencia de la juventud”, dice él. “Quiero decir eso de una manera positiva. Al parecer no tienen ningún miedo. No parece que se sientan cohibidos por el hecho de que están dirigiéndose a la Cámara de Diputados, y no temen hacer preguntas ni expresar sus opiniones. Utilizan la posición muy bien y con frecuencia”.Para algunos, la participación en la presencia de la juventud y luego como diputado conduce a posiciones de ulterior liderazgo.Bryan Krislock, de Seattle, se enteró de la presencia de la juventud en un Evento de la Juventud Episcopal y fue designado para asistir a la Convención General de Denver en 2000. Él sirvió como diputado por la Diócesis de Spokane en 2006 y 2009 y ahora es vicepresidente del Comité de Gobierno y Administración de la Misión como miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo.Rememorando el año 2000 dice: “yo no sabía mucho de antemano acerca de la Convención General. Realmente no sabía del gobierno y la política [de la Iglesia]. La experiencia a través de la presencia de la juventud en verdad fue reveladora. Me llevó a querer regresar y aspirar a ser diputado y… a poner mi nombre en el sombrero para el Consejo Ejecutivo”.Megan Anderson siguió una senda semejante, a partir del EYE en 2003 a la presencia de la juventud, y de ahí a ser diputada y ahora a su papel con la Hermandad Episcopal de la Paz, codirigiendo una diputación de jóvenes junto con Jessie Vedanti. Ella también es secretaria de la Comisión Permanente para la Misión y la Evangelización.“Algunos de los miembros [de la comisión] al principio me confiaron que habían pensado que yo era una representación simbólica de los jóvenes, pero se me acercaron después de la primera reunión y tuvieron que excusarse y decir realmente ‘es un gran privilegio tenerte como miembro pleno del equipo’. Eso me conmovió increíblemente. Servir en la comisión “ha sido una de mis experiencias preferidas hasta ahora en la Iglesia”.Anderson está al entrar en su último año de seminarista en la Escuela de Teología de Yale.“Como una líder reciente, o en desarrollo, en la Iglesia, me apasiona realmente preparar a todas las personas para el liderazgo de la Iglesia y capacitarlas realmente para que encuentren esos sitios con los cuales se apasionarán”, agregó.Observando la Convención General desde cierta distancia esta vez, mientras se prepara para tomar el examen del Colegio de Abogados dentro de unas pocas semanas, Krislock tiene algunos consejos para los diputados jóvenes:“No teman meterse en problemas. Levántense y hablen, compartan sus opiniones, pero también escuchen y observen… Escuchen y vean lo que la gente hace y traten de aprender cómo pueden escucharlos mejor: una manera de ver dónde vuestras oportunidades han de tener mayor impacto”.“Si no saben, pregunten” dice él.Y agrega, estén dispuestos a cambiar de idea. Su filosofía es “nunca dirigirse a una reunión sabiendo de antemano cómo voy a votar o habiendo tomado una decisión”.Y concluye: “No creo que es un buen liderazgo o un buen gobierno tener en mente un resultado particular tan fijo que no estés dispuesto a cambiar [de opinión]”.— Sharon Sheridan es miembro del equipo de Episcopal News Service en la Convención General.

Douglas Hahn fue electo el 18 de agosto Obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Lexington,  elección que ahora está pendiente de la debida ratificación de una mayoría de los obispos con jurisdicción y de los comités permanentes de la Iglesia Episcopal.Hahn, rector de la iglesia de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas] en Columbus, Georgia, en la Diócesis de Atlanta, fue electo en la segunda votación de una lista de seis nominados. Él recibió 67 de los 120 votos emitidos en el orden de los laicos, y 26 de los 44 en el orden del clero. Para resultar electo en esa votación [por mayoría simple] se requerían 61 votos del laicado y 23 del clero.La elección tuvo lugar durante la 116ª. convención anual de la diócesis en la iglesia catedral de Cristo [Christ Church Cathedral] en Lexington.Si el proceso de consentimiento resulta exitoso, Hahn sucederá al sexto obispo de Lexington, Rvdmo. Stacy F. Sauls, que fue llamado a convertirse en el jefe de operaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal en 2011. El Rvdmo. Chilton Knudsen ha servido a la diócesis como obispo auxiliar interino.Conforme a los Cánones (111.11.4) de la Iglesia Episcopal, una mayoría de los obispos que ejerzan jurisdicción y de los comités permanentes diocesanos deben dar su consentimiento para la consagración de un obispo electo en el curso de 120 días a partir de que hayan sido notificados de la elección.Hahn, que se crió en Georgia, dice “mis raíces se adentran en Kentucky central. Desciendo de generaciones de maestros y granjeros de Kentucky, pasaba los veranos en una comunidad del condado de Mercer y tomé mis cursos de posgrado en Louisville”.Él tiene una licenciatura en Historia de la Universidad de Georgia (1974); una maestría en Teología del Seminario Teológico Bautista del Sur, en Louisville, Kentucky (1977); un diploma en Estudios Anglicanos del Seminario Teológico General de Nueva York (1966) y un doctorado en Ministerio de Sewanee, la Universidad del Sur, en 1010. Hahn recibió una subvención sabática para líderes pastorales del Instituto de Louisville en 2007 para “Renovar las raíces  del ministerio” y un certificado de Especialista en Cuidado Pastoral, Cuidado Congregacional y Desarrollo del Instituto Pastoral en Columbus 2001-02.Como deán de la convocación en la Diócesis de Atlanta, Hahn supervisaba cinco pueblos, siete parroquias, 12 sacerdotes y compartía un ministerio comunitario. Trabajó en su diócesis en Formación Cristiana, así como en el trabajo comunitario con los jóvenes y en parroquias en transición, también presidió el Comité Permanente y fue diputado suplente a la Convención General.Hahn y su esposa Kaye son padres de tres hijos adultos.Antes de convertirse en rector de Santo Tomás, fue rector asociado de San Jorge [St. George’s], en Griffen, Georgia, de 1993 a 1999;  estuvo al frente del Ministerio de la Comunidad Cristiana de Buckhead, Atlanta, de 1990 a 1993; de la Junta de Misión Doméstica Bautista de Atlanta, de 1980 a 1986 y fue capellán del Hospital Bautista de Nueva Orleáns de 1978 a 1979.“Me siento contentísimo y honrado de ser llamado a convertirme en el séptimo obispo de Lexington”, dijo Hahn. “Kaye y nuestra familia comparten este entusiasmo. Durante mucho tiempo he querido a la gente de Kentucky, y durante los últimos meses he desarrollado un especial afecto por las personas de la Diócesis de Lexington —dentro y fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal. Sé que mi pasión por esta gente y mi pasión por la Iglesia de Dios nos traerá un largo y fructífero ministerio juntos”.“Le estoy agradecido a Kaye por su presencia en esta trayectoria. Ella es mi alegría. Estoy agradecido por las muchas personas de la diócesis que han puesto su corazón y su alma en este proceso;  por el constante cuidado del obispo Chilton a la diócesis; por las oraciones de mis obispos y colegas en la Diócesis de Atlanta, y especialmente en la iglesia de Santo Tomás en Columbus, un grupo de personas que se ocupan unas de otras con vivo interés, y cuyo valor e imaginación siempre los lleva a nuevos lugares de servicio en el mundo. También le esto agradecido a los otros candidatos por su compromiso con la Iglesia. [Y] le estoy agradecido a Dios, en cuyo servicio todos encontramos lo más elevado, lo más genuino y lo mejor de nosotros.“Que nuestros años juntos abunden en mutuo respecto y afecto, en pasión por el pueblo de Dios y la tierra de Dios, y que meditemos en el misterio de la Gracia que nos circunda. Que el mundo vea la luz de Cristo entre nosotros, y en esa luz sepan que ellos también son parte de la comunidad amada de Dios”.Los otros nominados fueron:El Rdo.

Morgan Parra prevents try brilliantly by punching ball out of attacker’s hands

first_imgTuesday May 24, 2016 Morgan Parra prevents try brilliantly by punching ball out of attacker’s hands Clermont beat Stade Francais 36-10 on Sunday, edging closer to reaching the Top 14 Semi Finals. Scrumhalf Morgan Parra collected a personal tally of 23 points, including denying the defending champions an early try with this outstanding piece of play over the tryline.  Stade Francais nearly off to a perfect start against last season’s Top 14 finalists as they created a nice string of passes down the left flank following a turnover.Sylvain Nicolas cruised over for what should have been the opening try of the day, but scrumhalf Parra was chasing from behind and managed to deliberately punch the ball out of his hands.It was a brilliant piece of play, reminiscent of George Gregan on Jeff Wilson, and one that set things up for the rest of the day, with Parra going on to kick 18 points and score a try of his own.“Morgan Parra is having a good season, it’s night and day with the start of the championship,” said Clermont coach Franck Azema.Parra took a bit of a knock later in the match after Jamie Cudmore, playing his final match for Clermont, flew into a ruck but hit his own player in the back. The Canadian powerhouse made up for it a little later though, turning provider for the nicely taken Parra try.Clermont are top of the table and need to beat either Toulouse or La Rochelle in their remaining matches to secure a semi final spot. Stade Francais meanwhile are sitting in 12th position.– View a highlights wrap herePLUS: Get Complete Rugby Nutrition FREEOur most popular workouts are back for this week only.

More armed attacks on media personnel in Baghdad, Mosul and Baquba

first_img News Organisation News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” News Reporters Without Borders today condemned the killings of five media employees (three journalists and two drivers) in Mosul and Baghdad in the past few days, as well as armed attacks on a journalist’s home in Baquba and a Shiite TV station in Baghdad.“Most of these cases are targeted attacks designed to eliminate or intimidate journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “Although most of the violence against the press takes place in the capital, the latest cases show that no one is safe in Iraq. Armed groups single out journalists for silencing in the most despicable manner throughout the country, especially if they work for partisan media with an editorial line the group concerned does not like.”Mohammed Al Ban, a cameraman with the Iraqi TV station Al Sharkiya, was killed outside his home in the Al Nur district of central Mosul (400 km north of Baghdad) on 13 November by gunmen in a car. The second Al Sharkiya employee to be killed since the start of the month, he also worked for the main local daily, Al Masar.Another journalist working for Al Masar, Fadia Mohammed Ali, was killed together with her driver as she was travelling to work in Mosul today.Journalist Qussai Abass of Tariq Al Shaab, a newspaper affiliated to the Communist Party, was gunned down with his driver in a similar fashion as he was travelling to the newspaper’s office in Baghdad on 2 November.Two gunmen burst into the home of freelance journalist Ali Al Hajiyeh in the Al Tahrir district of Baquba, 40 km north of Baghdad, on 8 November, smashing doors and windows and stealing personal effects. Hajiyeh has just left the city to find refuge for his family in Baghdad after shots were fired at his home a few days earlier.Several mortar shells exploded at the entrance of the privately-owned Shiite TV station Al Anwar in Baghdad on 7 November, injuring five people including the station’s security guards.A total of 133 journalists and media assistants have been killed since the start of the war in Iraq in 2003, while 51 have been kidnapped.

Domestic violence victims should stand up to abusers in court

first_img Previous articleAnnie Get Your Gun – worth €45,000Next articleFree cancer counselling in Limerick Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Judge Marian O’LearyJudge Marian O’LearyAndrew [email protected] abuse victims who withdraw their complaints at the eleventh hour are seriously hampering the administration of justice and undermining efforts to stamp out this type of crime.That was the view expressed by Limerick District Court Judge Marian O’Leary after charges against a young Limerick man for three alleged breaches of a protection order issued to his partner had to be withdrawn before the trial commenced.Judge O’Leary and prosecuting Garda Sergeant Donal Cronin highlighted the “invidious” position prosecutors are left in when women fail to give evidence or withdraw their allegations of domestic violence against their partners.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sergeant Cronin had earlier told the court that the prosecution was in difficulty as alleged victim told Gardaí that she wished to withdraw her complaints despite making a number of statements.It was alleged that the young man, who is a member of the Traveller community, breached a court protection order on three occasions last year.His partner, who is pregnant, made complaints to Gardaí and followed this up with official statements.She alleged that her partner had become aggressive when he was under the influence of alcohol and that it sparked violent incidents in the home.The man had been remanded in custody after Gardaí arrested him.However on the morning of the trial, Sgt Cronin said the woman turned up at the court and asked to withdraw the allegations and said she was doing so under her own free will.Judge O’Leary said that the case was to proceed and asked for the young woman to be called to the witness box.The woman denied she was under threat although she accepted that she had made the complaints to Gardaí.Asked if she would give evidence, the woman simply said “no”.“I don’t want to proceed. We are getting a new home. My husband is off the drink. We have a baby due and everything is going right now,” she told Judge O’Leary.Sgt Cronin said that the prosecution had been left in an “invidious position because of the a la carte attitude taken by the witness”.Judge O’Leary remarked that a great deal of Garda time had gone to waste.“There are three matters before the court and that means that you saw fit on three occasions to go to the Gardai out of fear. Now because of your decision to withdraw the allegations, the State cannot proceed in the administration of justice”, Judge O’Leary told the woman.“Given the position of the key State witness and the nature of the allegations, I must withdraw the prosecution,” Sergeant Cronin said.

With all the “Pomp and Circumstance” associated with graduation, the Goshen Class of 2020 entered the ceremonies as high school seniors to leave as graduates. “He is my sixth graduate here at Goshen. We understand the circumstances and the ceremony was nice and meaningful.

Academy decision will have negative impact

first_imgLISA DOWNEY To the Editor,The decision to “decentralize” the Academy for Fine Arts and Academics at Bayonne High School is one that will negatively impact the district and the city.AFA2 was presented in every city elementary public school and at the BHS Open House as an academy setting and complete package. It was not presented as a list of available courses which is all that remains. Acceptances and scholarships to other schools were declined by many AFA2 students who chose the academy based on what was presented. Without notice, the district changed the terms of the agreement into which it entered. AFA2 was decentralized with less than seven weeks until the start of the school year leaving students with a program upon which they never agreed.Within 19 days of the interim superintendent assuming his position, AFA2 families received notice of the decentralization. Nineteen days is not sufficient time to evaluate the value of AFA2. Savings are projected yet discrepancies arise. Zero period gym was eliminated for underclassmen and savings calculated. The realization of the need for this course led to its being reopened which, undoubtedly, will decrease the anticipated savings. The loss of even a handful of students to other schools means a loss of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars. Investing time and energy into saving AFA2 would have benefitted the district financially and educationally.While I understand the urgent need for the district to become financially sound, we are sacrificing programs that made this district shine. This system used to play a significant role in keeping families in Bayonne but as we continue to sacrifice quality programs throughout the district, we will lose the families that have been the heart of our district.last_img read more
