Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgOut of lineLeinster desperately needed a win in their second Champions Cup pool match, having lost at home to Wasps last weekend. Late in the game at Bath, with the home side 19-16 up, Leinster had a chance to steal the points when they kicked a penalty to touch to set up an attacking lineout.However, there was a dreadful mix-up in communication between the replacement hooker James Tracy and the rest of his forwards, as his throw went straight to Bath skipper Stuart Hooper, with no one from Leinster even being hoisted up to challenge for the ball. TAGS: HighlightWasps On the charge: Dave Ward making one of his breaks for Harlequins. (Photo: Getty Images)Wonderful WardHarlequins hooker Dave Ward was in the unusual position of covering the back row on the bench for their European Challenge Cup match against Cardiff Blues and he was pressed into service as an openside flanker after half an hour, when Jack Clifford was stretchered off.Was Ward daunted? No! In fact he positively relished the challenge and he turned in a Man of the Match performance, making a huge contribution to Quins’ 32-20 win.Ward made 18 carries, covered 95 metres with the ball in hand, crossed the gain line 11 times and beat six defenders. He and Nick Easter played off each other brilliantly and his offloading was first class.The hooker clearly enjoyed a chance to play a different role and said: “It’s amazing what you can do when you don’t have to hit the scrums!” Try-tasticMarcus Watson equalled a club record by running in four tries for Newcastle Falcons in their 55-7 win over Russian club Enisei-STM in Sunday’s Challenge Cup match.Playing against tougher opposition in the shape of Bordeaux-Begles, Olly Woodburn ran in two tries in Exeter Chiefs’ 34-19 home win in the Champions Cup, sprinting up the left wing for both and, in the case of the second, capitalising on a wonderful break out of defence by Henry Slade.Over in France, David Strettle scored two crackers for Clermont Auvergne to help them beat the Ospreys and earn the Man of the Match award. The wing’s first came from a run from half-way, while his second involved an elusive, weaving run through the defence from the 22.Ah See Tuala scored a brace for Northampton Saints in their excellent 26-15 win at the home of Guinness Pro12 champions Glasgow Warriors. Both tries were superbly taken by the Samoan wing. The SinnersRed for ReesThis week’s rogues’ gallery is led by Matthew Rees, after the Cardiff Blues hooker raked his boot across the face of Harlequins’ No 8 Nick Easter during their European Challenge Cup clash.Easter was caught at the bottom of the ruck in the 73rd minute and as Rees joined the fray his boot made contact with his face, leaving Easter in some pain and with what looked like a stud mark on his eyelid.Rees was quite rightly sent off by referee Alexandre Ruiz. Harlequins were 25-13 up at the time and went on to win 32-20.Racing 92 flanker Bernard le Roux was also sent off for stamping in his side’s 29-12 win at the Scarlets. His offence was not nearly as severe as Rees’s though, as he just lashed out at Ken Owens’ ankle on the edge of a ruck in the 44th minute. Racing were already 26-0 up at the time, so le Roux’s foul did not impact on the result. Bath weren’t about to give Leinster another chance and the Irish side’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals are all but dashed. The SaintsChampions stungWasps produced arguably the performance and result of the weekend, beating three-times European champions Toulon 32-6 at the Ricoh Arena, just a week after kicking off their Champions Cup campaign with an away win at the home of former champions Leinster.James Gaskell was named Man of the Match but fly-half Ruaridh Jackson got Wasps off to a flying start, throwing a fabulous long, cut-out pass to find Nathan Hughes inside the 22 and the No 8 scored with eight minutes on the clock.Two minutes later, Jackson chipped the defence in the middle of the pitch, Joe Simpson gathered and offloaded to Gaskell and he found Jackson roaring through to finish off a terrific try which gave Wasps a 17-0 lead.When Wasps lost playmaker Jimmy Gopperth to suspension just before their first two European matches of the season, it looked like it might be a big blow, but with Jackson pulling the strings the English side have scored over 60 points on the way to beating two of Europe’s top teams.Wasps boss Dai Young is understandably buzzing. “That’s as good as it gets,” he said. Wasps supporters will hope there is more of the same to come. There were some stellar performances in the second round of the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup, but other players had a weekend to forget. On targetGeorge Ford landed a 42 metre penalty in the 76th minute to take Bath to a hard-earned 19-16 home win over Leinster. The England fly-half’s place kicking becomes more consistent all the time and while it was Bath’s forward dominance which set the platform for this win, particularly in the scrum, without ice-cool Ford to turn the chances into points they would have fallen short.center_img Come in No 10: Ruaridh Jackson scores against Toulon. (Photo: Getty Images) Double bonusWhat a spirited performance the Ospreys put in against Clermont Auvergne in the Champions Cup. They looked dead and buried at 20-3 down, fought back to 20-17, only to see their French hosts stretch away to 34-17 with two more tries.However, the Ospreys found the spirit to fight to the finish and two tries in the last two minutes – the first by Sam Parry after a lovely offload from Justin Tipuric, and the second a magnificent run from Tom Habberfield after great work from Dan Biggar – gave the Welsh side two precious bonus points, one for scoring four tries and one for bringing the final score back to within seven points at 34-29. Super Sale: Vili Fihaki, who scored the bonus point try, in the thick of it v Pau. (Photo: Getty Images)Vili goodSale ended their eight-game losing streak in European competition by beating Pau 29-20 at home in the Challenge Cup, and No 8 Viliami Fihaki put the icing on the cake in the 77th minute when his try earned the Sharks an important four-try bonus point.The five match points Sale earned keep them in touch in Pool 2, where the Dragons are top with six points after a win and a loss and Castres are also just behind on five points after defeating the Welsh side on Saturday and having their first match postponed. Fine marginsUlster fans thought Saracens’ blindside Michael Rhodes should also have seen red when he sent Andrew Trimble clattering to the floor early in their clash after Trimble had leapt to catch a high ball. However, the fact that the wing landed flat on his back meant Rhodes was only sin-binned by referee Romain Poite, as players who take out an opponent in the air are generally only red-carded if the tackled player lands on their shoulders or head. It was still reckless from Rhodes and he was lucky his challenge did not turn out to be more significant.I’m OK: Andrew Trimble was not badly injured when he was taken out in the air. (Photo: Getty Images)Wrong kind of handiworkWith 49 minutes on the clock, the Cardiff Blues v Harlequins match was evenly poised at 6-6. Two minutes later Quins led 20-6 thanks to the “generosity” of a few Blues players, who handed their visitors a couple of tries on a plate.Firstly, Tim Visser ripped the ball away from the grasping fingertips of Josh Turnbull after anticipating where a pass from Kristian Dacey was going. Visser raced in for a try, which Ben Botica converted, then two minutes later Botica was stepping up to the tee again, after Lou Reed had the ball torn out of his grasp and Ollie Lindsay-Hague sprinted in for a try.It was a scoring burst the Blues struggled to recover from and they returned to their generous ways in the last play of the game when, at 25-20 down they were hoping to grab a dramatic win, only for Tau Filise to allow the ball to be stolen from his hands and Danny Care coasted over for a bonus-point try for Harlequins. A Goode day: Alex Goode helped Saracens win at Ulster. (Photo: Getty Images)Farrell and Goode to the foreSaracens became the first team to beat Ulster at the Kingspan Stadium since Toulon in October 2014, and no small thanks was due to Owen Farrell and Alex Goode for creating scoring chances.Farrell sent a magnificent cut-out pass to Goode, who then put Chris Wyles over for the first try and in the second half Goode saw some space in behind the Ulster defence, put in a perfect chip and was on hand to collect a brilliant offload from Duncan Taylor, who had chased the chip with him, and score.A scorching line break from Farrell then made the third try and the fly-half even joined a driving maul to help Billy Vunipola score the fourth. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sharp as you likeGloucester wing Charlie Sharples got the second round of European action off to a stunning start on Thursday with a contender for Try of the Season.Fielding a kick just inside his own half, Sharples spotted a gap, pinned his ears back and cut through the La Rochelle defence, leaving defenders trailing in his wake, grasping at thin ear. Full-back Charles Bouldoire managed to get hold of his as he crossed the line, but Sharples still grounded the ball.Watch his try here – complete with brilliant French commentary!last_img read more

10 Things You Shouldn’t Do At The Rugby World Cup

first_img Rugby World Cup Fixtures 2023 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Owain Jones discusses the cultural significance of tattoos… 2019 Rugby World Cup TV Coverage Rugby World Cup – Tattoos Going to the tournament in Japan? Make sure you know what not to do whilst attending the Rugby World Cup. 2019 Rugby World Cup TV Coverage Expand This is another big one. During your time in Japan you will inevitably eat with chopsticks at some stage and when you do, there are some things to avoid. Do not pass food from chopstick to chopstick, don’t rest chopsticks vertically in food, and don’t point with your chopsticks. (In fact just pointing in general is regarded as rude in Japanese culture.)Don’t loudly showoff your tattoosPut simply, tattoos in the Far East have a different cultural significance compared to other places around the world. To some they are a fashion statement but in Japan they are undeniably linked with the Yakuza, the crime syndicate.For more information on this visit out page focusing on tattoos.Don’t finish everything on your plate unless you want moreIf being hosted in a Japanese house, do not finish everything on your plate because the host will think you want more. It is customary if you are full to leave a bit on the plate and in your glass. Rugby World Cup Fixtures 2023center_img 10 Things You Shouldn’t Do At The Rugby World CupAre you lucky enough to have secured tickets for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan? If so you are obviously excited to watch some rugby and enjoy yourselves but given how different Japanese culture is in comparison to the West and other areas of the world, there are some things you definitely shouldn’t do whilst there.So to save you some trouble, embarrassment or to stop you making a cultural faux pas, this piece will give you some tips.Don’t forget to pre-order your Rail Pass This is a big one. Make sure you pre-order this before you arrive in Japan because you won’t be able to purchase one in the country and train tickets can be expensive. This will save you money, time, and a lot of hassle because the pass allows you to travel as much as you want within the number of days you have purchased.Don’t make a lot of noise on public transportWe all get annoyed at that one person on public transport who decides to have a very loud phone conversation so that everyone can hear it. That kind of thing is barely acceptable in the UK and it definitely isn’t in Japan. Public transport there tends to be very quiet so try and stay away from having phone conversations whilst using trains, buses and so on. By all means use your phone for texting though.Don’t ignore the queuing for public transportEveryone says the British love to queue but the Japanese take it one step further especially in terms of public transport. At most bus stops and train platforms there will be lines indicating where to queue from and then you can get on board in single file once the other passengers have alighted.Don’t eat whilst walking in publicIn Japan people tend to avoid eating on the go. Usually when people buy fast food or products from vending machines, they consume it immediately and then put it in the bin that stands right next to the shop or machine.Don’t have bad chopstick etiquette  Rugby World Cup Fixtures The 2023 Rugby World… Collapse Rugby World Cup – Tattoos Don’t blow your nose in publicThis should probably be applied to anywhere. If you need to then try and do it discreetly.Don’t pour alcohol for yourselfIf you are out at bars or where alcohol is present, it is the custom to serve others their drinks and not yourself.

He was taken in handcuffs to the gendarmerie and then to the police station.The candidate complained about an article posted on the website on 22 May headlined, “The sudden fortune of Ibrahima Sarr”, referring to “the purchase by Mr Sarr of a villa costing 30 million ouguiyas (about 83,000 euros) on the Nouadhibou road in an area known as ’university lands’, one of the capital’s swankiest districts”. Sarr and his family considered the article “defamatory and baseless” and took the case before the court.The journalist’s lawyer, Sid’Elmoktar Ould Sidi, was yesterday denied the right to visit his client. He said the journalist’s rights were being trampled on because he had not been told the reason for his arrest.

Investigative reporter in critical condition after being shot in head

first_img News (Picture: Vlaschenko was beaten up last May) Receive email alerts News to go further Help by sharing this information UkraineEurope – Central Asia UkraineEurope – Central Asia March 26, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is shocked to learn that Oleksander Vlaschenko, an investigative reporter for the local newspaper Nashe Misto, was shot in the head by unidentified attackers while returning to his home in the southern city of Mykolayiv on the night of 16 October and is now in a critical condition in hospital with a bullet in his brain.“We voice our support for Vlaschenko, his family and colleagues and we welcome the fact that the attack’s possible link to his work is now one of the hypotheses being considered by the police,” Reporters Without Borders said. This possibility must be given serious consideration. It should be the subject of a full and impartial investigation.”Vlaschenko was attacked shortly before midnight by assailants who shot him once in the head and took his two mobile phones and camera before making off. They left the 300 grivnas (30 euros) he had in his pocket. As that is a relatively large sum in this part of Ukraine, their failure to take it suggests that robbery, the theory initially preferred by the police, was not the motive. Vlaschenko is often critical of the local authorities in his reporting and has covered highly sensitive subjects involving corruption and organized crime. His latest stories were about possible embezzlement of the proceeds from the sale of land by local government officials.Nashe Misto editor Anatoliy Astafiychuk told Reporters Without Borders: “We cannot rule out the possibility that robbery was the sole motive, but it could also have been connected to his work. He covers extremely sensitive subjects and many people might have wanted revenge. He was beaten up three years ago, suffering concussion (…) Death threats have been made against him in comments posted online under his articles.”He was also one of four journalists who were beaten up by representatives of the tax inspection department last May (see picture). “Journalists are often attacked and beaten in the Mykolayiv region but this would be the first time that a journalist has been shot in connection with his work,” Astafiychuk added. Vlaschenko is no longer in a coma but he is suffering from amnesia and doctors still regard his condition as very critical. They have not yet tried to remove the bullet from his brain because it is lodged so deep (8 cm).The police are currently looking for witnesses of the attack, which has been registered as a violation of article 187 of the criminal code (“robbery by an organized group or robbery in which serious injuries are inflicted”).Physical attacks on journalists are a major problem in Ukraine, where media freedom has deteriorated sharply during the past 18 months or so after a promising spell. Ukraine is ranked 131st out of 178 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom organisation press freedom index.
