Aviva Premiership final: an old-fashioned tear up

first_img Going down: Courtney Lawes introduces Toby Flood to the ground the last time the two sides met on March 30By Alan Dymock“AMBUSH AT the Allianz” could be a way of describing the Aviva Premiership semi-final between Northampton Saints and Saracens.That would do a disservice to Saints, though, who maintained an impressive level of defence, breakdown abuse and thumping counter-runs in order to topple the clear favourites at their own patch. Tactically they did exactly what they needed to do to win and the shell-shocked Sarries had their spot in the final snatched away.This set up an almighty clash against their nearest of Premiership rivals the Leicester Tigers this Saturday, a team who had ruthlessly dismantled Harlequins in their own semi.Leading well: Dylan Hartley rose to the occasion at the Allianz  With odds longer than a dinner with your in-laws, Saints are not fancied to triumph, particularly as they face a side who turn up to Twickenham for a grand final for the ninth season in a row. They have only won three times in their last eight visits, of course, but they know the occasion well. When the pressure is on, it is also assumed, Saints players may cast their minds back to their last major final in 2011 when the team threw away a sizeable 22-6 half-time lead over Leinster in the Heineken Cup to lose 33-22.What Saints showed in this year’s semi, however, is that they can face the over-hyped foe, suffer some slugs in a few rounds of rope-a-dope action and counter. They were most dangerous when slipping round the edges and they took Saracens’ best shots and smiled back at them.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Dazzling drive: As Leicester led, Matt Tait shone in the semisSlow slogging plays in to Leicester’s hands because as soon as Saints get used to a monotonous pace the Tigers can punch through the midfield with Manu Tuilagi and Vereniki Goneva. They can cover kicks cleverly, too, with Mathew Tait and Toby Flood in good form. The pack can do as they have traditionally done at Twickenham, bundling forward and sucking fight out of the opposition, if Leicester’s thinkers know where the ball is going.This is what happened the last time the two sides met in March, with Tigers blowing Saints away with a 38-6 win. Even while wasting chances Leicester were able to take the best of Northampton, hold them down and let Flood kick before Tuilagi exploded through the barricades in the second half, leading Tigers towards a comprehensive victory. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In versatile forward Samu Manoa they have an athlete who lands on other players like a house-brick frisbee and their front row are one of the best on the planet. They will want to manouvre themselves smartly around the park thanks to the boots of Stephen Myler and Ben Fodden, but it is how their pack spar with the Tigers’ heavies that will dictate the pace of this game. Saints have to recreate the form of their semi final, not that lumbering slow-dance of a regular season match-up.At 3pm at Twickenham the hardiest of fans will witness more crunching action. The players may not wince as the crowd do, but they should all be prepared: this will not be an ambush so much as an old-fashioned tear up.last_img read more

New Zealand 28-27 England: A thriller from the game’s elite

first_img TAGS: Highlight Three tries each, some scintillating play, controversial TMO calls, a late fight back and a home town hero lighting it up from full-back: this Test had it all, writes Alan Dymock in Dunedin. This series is now officially New Zealand’s, but as All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen said: “There’s been nothing in it.”Nothing in it: There have been flashes of brilliance, but there have been no huge winsA one-point loss will be tough to take, but this side had to concede to the quality of their hosts and as England head-coach said after the match, his team deserved a half-time lead and did well to come back in the fourth quarter of the game, but the third section was were the All Blacks really showed their quality.There was frustration there and plenty of positives, from an English point of view, but in the end it was a performance of champions from New Zealand in the face of staunchly challenging opposition still learning lessons abroad.England captain Chris Robshaw probably summed it up perfectly when he said there was “no secret recipe” to the All Black’s quality. It’s just that they are “probably the most dangerous side in the world” when you switch off. But it’s not over. Not by a long shot. When Richie McCaw said his full-back Ben Smith was “a champion” post-match, just after beating England 28-27 in the second Test in Dunedin, he held a big grin.The full-back was the pick of the players on the day – a day for running rugby under the roof at Forsyth Barr – but in the second half a three-try blitz from local hero Smith, Julian Savea and Ma’a Nonu was enough to see the All Blacks clear, despite an impressively strong first 40 minutes from England. This Test was one of the most thrilling encounters you could hope to witness and one which ensures there is a strong rivalry between the two nations, stretching into 2015.The first half fizzed with England galloping into a 10-6 half-time lead, a step and hanging pop finding Marland Yarde who glided through a McCaw tackle to score the only try of the first half. It felt as if there could be an upset on the cards and a when a Manu Tuilagi 60m break was reeled in by Ben Smith there was a sense that the world champions were holding on by their fingertips.Scuttling off the wing: Manu Tuilagi had mixed fortunes playing at 14 for EnglandHowever, the All Blacks never seem to get rattled and while England huddled on the halfway line just after the break while their counterparts in black came out scowling, not talking at all, ready for business.Smith was very quickly put through under the posts after a two-on-one was created by Savea, who enjoyed a busy game opposite Tuilagi. The menacing winger was a particular threat zeroing in on the hole between England’s centres and he also scored one himself, taking his total to 20 tries in 21 Tests. Then, when Nonu managed to step inside Yarde’s and Luther Burrell’s tackles after a sensational half-break from Conrad Smith, scoring a Kiwi third, the mood changed again.This England side will, of course never roll over, and while Mike Brown scored a controversial try that looked for all the world like it was not grounded in the TV replays, England got into the right areas at the death. And there was nothing controversial about the last score, with Brown expertly collecting an out-the-back-door offload from Tuilagi – looking all the more comfortable at centre than he did at wing – and he put away Chris Ashton, who could only give a mini-splash to score. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Local hero: Ben Smith is congratulated by Julian Savea after a superb showing in front of his home fans “We came down here to win a series and we haven’t done that,” Robshaw agreed before defiantly saying: “We still want to win a game down here.”This match was a show from the elite level of rugby. Let’s all hope it carries on in the same entertaining manner for the third Test in Hamilton, as well as in the now-important mid-weeker against the Canterbury Crusaders.last_img read more

Action not words needed in missing journalist investigation

first_img April 16, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Action not words needed in missing journalist investigation to go further News News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by the continuing lack of progress in the investigation into French reporter Guy-André Kieffer’s abduction 11 years ago in Abidjan and urges the French and Ivorian authorities to keep their promises to shed light on the case.Tomorrow is the 11th anniversary of the disappearance of Kieffer, who also had Canadian nationality. In all these years, Reporters Without Borders has never stopped pressing the authorities to find out what happened to him.When French President François Hollande visited Côte d’Ivoire in July 2014, Reporters Without Borders asked him to request the creation of a special commission of enquiry or the formation a joint judicial investigative unit by the French and Ivorian judges in charge of the case.In a written reply on 20 October, the Elysée Palace said solving the case continued to be a “priority for France” and promised to monitor “the progress of this investigation being conducted by the judicial authorities of the two countries concerned, France and Côte d’Ivoire.”When a Reporters Without Borders team visited Côte d’Ivoire in May 2014, President Alassane Ouattara undertook to do everything possible “to ensure that light is shed on this case and to find out what happened.” He also asked the justice ministry and the public prosecutor to keep him abreast of any developments in the investigation.Since then, the investigating judge who replaced Patrick Ramaël as judge in charge of the French investigation complied with requests ​for continued legal actions made ​by the registered civil parties (the Kieffer family and Reporters Without Borders). He submitted ​letters rogatory​ to the Ivorian authorities in November 2014. They have yet to respond.“We welcome this formal request for action by the Ivorian authorities, which means that the case remains open, but we are concerned by their silence,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk. ”This case must not be forgotten and must not go unpunished. Those who masterminded this disappearance must be identified and brought to trial.” Receive email alerts Côte d’IvoireAfrica Côte d’IvoireAfrica October 29, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections November 27, 2020 Find out more Investigation with many pitfallsWhen Kieffer went missing in Abidjan on 16 April 2004, he was investigating questionable practices in the production and sale of cocoa, of which Côte d’Ivoire is the world’s leading producer. Twelve days later, his family filed a complaint in France accusing unidentified persons of kidnapping him. Reporters Without Borders registered as civil party in this case a few days later.The investigation launched by French judge Patrick Ramaël was hampered by the fraught relations between France and the Ivorian government, then headed by President Laurent Gbagbo, by the difficulty of investigating in Côte d’Ivoire, and by the pact of silence observed by those suspected of involvement, who were all close to Gbagbo. After Gbagbo’s fall, Reporters Without Borders hoped that the investigation would make some progress.Eleven years of international campaigningDuring the eleven years since his abduction, Kieffer’s family and international supporters have never ceased to draw attention to his disappearance and the climate of impunity blocking the investigation.In April 2014, on the tenth anniversary of his disappearance, Reporters Without Borders and his local support committee organized a poster campaign in Abidjan to press the authorities to keep their promise to ensure that “no one will be protected.”Kieffer’s wife, Osange Silou-Kieffer, and Reporters Without Borders were received by President Ouattara in Abidjan in 2012.A news conference with Kieffer’s family and representatives of his support committees was organized at Reporters Without Borders headquarters in Paris on 15 April 2010, while a poster campaign was under way for the first time on the streets of Abidjan.Other events organized by Reporters Without Borders in Paris have included painting stencil portraits of Kieffer on street walls in 2007 and a “What did Guy-André Kieffer know?” protest at Côte d’Ivoire’s stand at the Chocolate Exhibition in 2006.Reporters Without Borders, the Truth for Guy-André Kieffer Association and the Guy-André Kieffer Breton Support Committee dumped liquid cocoa and fake dollars outside the Côte d’Ivoire embassy in Paris in 2005Côte d’Ivoire is ranked 86th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

You Need To Know A Few TricksHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhy Luxury Fashion Brands Are So ExpensiveHerbeautyHerbeauty The recent conviction of a woman who left her two young children locked in a car parked on a Pasadena city street on a hot summer day serves as an important reminder that the Pasadena City Attorney/City Prosecutor’s Office will rigorously seek convictions in similar cases.“There is no such thing as a quick errand when it comes to leaving kids or animals in the sweltering heat inside a car,” Pasadena City Attorney/City Prosecutor Michele Beal Bagneris said. “Our message is clear: don’t leave children inside a car in the heat.”Recently, Highland Park resident Corina Lopez, 35, pled guilty on Aug. 5, 2014 to two counts of child endangerment stemming from an Aug. 1, 2014 incident in which she left her two children, ages 3 and 7, inside a car parked on the street near the Pasadena Public Health Department. The Department’s security guard alerted public safety officials to the situation.Pasadena Fire officials at the scene determined the temperature inside the car was over 120 degrees. Authorities got the children to unlock the car door to free themselves prior to forcing entry into the car. The children were checked by paramedics who determined they were otherwise unharmed.Police questioned Ms. Lopez and she was taken into custody. Later, two counts of Penal Code section 273a(a), child endangerment likely to lead to serious injury or death, one count per child, were filed. She pled guilty at her Aug. 5 arraignment and was sentenced to five years of probation; 120 days in county jail; mandatory year of parenting classes; pay court fines and fees; ordered to stay away from the children completely and to obey all orders from the Department of Children and Family Services.At the time of her arrest and conviction in this case, Ms. Lopez was on probation for conviction of driving under the influence in a January 2013 case.Bagneris said such cases in Pasadena, while rare, will not be tolerated. Her office usually files about two such cases each year out of about 4,500 case filings.“Even one case is one too many when it comes to leaving children in cars on a hot summer day,” she added. “We have a great team of prosecutors in Pasadena and we are ready to seek the full extent of justice in order to protect the children.”Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!
