A rugby double at the British Sports Book Awards

first_imgMonday night’s rugby double followed an identical feat last year, when Tom English’s The Grudge won the rugby award while Brian Moore’s Beware of the Dog won the biography category. It affirms the high quality of rugby books on the market; when a title as good as Jonny Wilkinson’s autobiography can’t get a look-in, you know sports publishing is in rude health.Buy The Grudge here with AmazonBuy Beware of the Dog here with AmazonGolf and motorsports joined the existing categories at the ten-year-old British Sports Book Awards, highlights of which will be shown on Sky Sports.There was also a special award for Nick Hornby, whose fan book Fever Pitch is being reissued by Penguin as a Modern Classic. Hornby pointed out that when he started watching Arsenal, a ticket cost just 15p and kids could attend every home match; today, eye-watering prices mean that, for many, watching a football match is a rare treat. A rugby double at the British Sports Book AwardsAT THE risk of sounding smug, rugby is once again leading the way in the world of sports writing. At the 2012 British Sports Book Awards, the Biography of the Year gong went to Engage, the astonishingly powerful account of Matt Hampson’s life after sustaining a catastrophic rugby injury during England U21 training in 2005.Buy Engage here with AmazonFootball writer Mick Dennis, who chaired the judging panel, admitted that the idea of the book didn’t appeal to him. Having read it, he changed his tune, telling the assembled cast of hundreds at London’s Savoy hotel that it was a book that nobody should let pass them by. Author Paul Kimmage gave a moving acceptance speech.As proof of the competitive nature of these awards, the Rugby Book of the Year went not to Hambo but to Alastair Hignell for his marvellous Matches, Microphones & MS.Buy Matches, Microphones & MS here with AmazonAs with Engage, the book involves a physical and mental struggle, although Higgy at least enjoyed a lengthy international sports and broadcasting career before the debilitating effects of MS took hold. Ian Robertson, the BBC rugby correspondent and a long-time friend of Higgy’s, was there to present the trophy.

An England 23 for Rugby World Cup 2019

first_img TAGS: Highlight 15. Mat ProtheroeCurrent number of caps: 0Age at start of Rugby World Cup 2019: 22A left-field pick to headline the team-sheet, but if Protheroe’s jaw-dropping progress in age-group rugby continues – and England can keep him away from the clutches of Wales, his country of birth – he could be impossible to ignore. Blessed with electric pace, kicking accuracy and the skilful awareness of a natural first-receiver, the prodigy was signed up by Gloucester this spring amid a number of circling suitors.Big future: Mat Protheroe breaks during the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s14. Anthony WatsonCurrent number of caps: 14Age at start of RWC 2019: 25Fleeting moments of indecision this tournament were comprehensively overshadowed by Watson’s finishing and he also looked close to Israel Folau in terms of aerial prowess. Those two gifts are forged from rare athleticism. The Bath tyro is going nowhere.13. Manu TuilagiCurrent number of caps: 25Age at start of RWC 2019: 28Jonathan Joseph is extremely unlucky to miss out here, but a fully-firing, injury-free Tuilagi amid a phalanx of pacey distributors makes for a mouth-watering backline blend. It is easy to forget how young he is and, at his destructive best, the Leicester Tiger can obliterate any gain-line defence.Runaway train: The Manu Tuilagi Express gathers pace against New Zealand12. Henry Slade Current number of caps: 1Age at start of RWC 2019: 26Without wishing to elevate expectations unduly before he wins his second cap at the weekend, it would be a significant surprise if Slade has not hit at least 30 Tests before the next World Cup. On Saturday, Australia and Matt Giteau demonstrated the value of a classy, left-footed playmaker at inside centre. Slade is good enough to perform a similar role.11. Jack NowellCurrent number of caps: 9Age at start of RWC 2019: 26Deceptively strong and positionally astute, Nowell was unfortunate not to see a minute of game-time while England were alive in Pool A. Even so, he will have taken a great deal from in-camp life. Now, expect him to kick on at Sandy Park. Ever-improving Jonny May and lightning youngster Nathan Earle are sure to be in the shake-up as well.10. George FordCurrent number of caps: 16Age at start of RWC 2019: 26As England desperately attempted to claw their way back into contention against the Wallabies, Ford appeared close to the levels that wowed us during the Six Nations. Owen Farrell’s tenacious traits are certainly important – the Saracen was outstanding in defeat to Wales – but the Bath man must assume the driving seat for the next four years.Matador: George ford evades the tackle of Tevita Kuridrani9. Ben YoungsCurrent number of caps: 52Age at start of RWC 2019: 30Turning 30 the day before proceedings get underway in Japan, Youngs should have plenty in the tank for a third World Cup – by which time he and Ford will have a decade behind them as a half-back partnership.  With a burly pack of solid set-piece operators in front of him, his matured attacking instincts should come to the fore.1. Joe MarlerCurrent number of caps: 36Age at start of RWC 2019: 29Well-publicised struggles over the past two months do not change the fact that Marler is, at peak form, one of the premier scrummaging looseheads on the planet. A scything cover tackle on Matt Giteau last weekend underlined open-play value too. Before the Six Nations, he should be encouraged to rediscover the spiky streak that characterised his initial rise to senior international honours. With 36 Tests to his name now, Marler should be a gnarled 60-capper by the next global tournament.2. Jamie GeorgeCurrent number of caps: 2Age at start of RWC 2019: 28Specialist throwing coach Simon Hardy rates George’s core skills among the best of the hookers he has worked with over the past decade. His ballast and technique in the scrum make for an all-round set-piece package without compromising on mobility or work-rate. A calm head might see him assume a leadership role as well.Dead-eye darts: Jamie George prepares to throw in3. Paul HillCurrent number of caps: 0Age at start of RWC 2019: 24It will take something special to oust Dan Cole, who is only 28 now and easily capable of making it a hat-trick of World Cups. Hill is a sufficiently extraordinary talent to do so. A stand-out of last season’s England Under 20 crop and the cornerstone of a 28-20 victory over South Africa, the ex-Yorkshire Carnegie prop moved to Northampton Saints in the summer. His reputation will only rocket from here.4. Joe LaunchburyCurrent number of caps: 27Age at start of RWC 2019: 28Effervescent during the loss to the Wallabies, Launchbury laid a foundation from which to move on into the next four-year cycle. Though some have mooted captaincy, it would be more beneficial for England were he left free to concentrate on hitting the world-class bracket in as many matches as possible.5. Maro Itoje (captain)Current number of caps: 0Age at start of RWC 2019: 24Having excelled in every challenge thrown his way over a short career to date, it would be a waste to hold Itoje back any longer. Authority seeps from the lock’s every pore and he has spent pre-season captaining Saracens – following on from a silverware-drenched campaign in 2014/5. Itoje did not even reach the Denver phase of England’s preparations for the World Cup, which will only have fuelled his determination. By 2019, he should have a couple of years in the top job behind him.Rising star: Maro Itoje makes a tackle on England Saxons duty6. Dave EwersCurrent number of caps: 0Age at start of RWC 2019: 28This bloke is a phenomenon in terms of power and natural ability, who contributes in every facet – carrying, offloading, destructive defence and rock-solid breakdown work. The Zimbabwe-born Exeter Chief mixed it with a very strong Ireland Wolfhounds back-row boasting Sean O’Brien in January and was an odd omission from Lancaster’s initial party of 50. Expect him to make up for lost time rather quickly. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS As Stuart Lancaster’s side gear up for the empty exercise of a dead-rubber against Uruguay, we select an England team that could launch an assault on Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan 7. Jack CliffordCurrent number of caps: 0Age at start of RWC 2019: 26Will Fraser has already made waves in pre-season since returning from injury and is certain to figure in England’s auditions for a fetcher to rival David Pocock, as is Matt Kvesic. The sheer speed of Clifford – with a short spell in Simon Amor’s sevens set-up behind him – is a perfect foil for the two burlier specimens either side. He brings impressive strength in contact from his time as an age-group No 8 and will build on decent pilfering by learning of nuances from Harlequins colleagues Luke Wallace, Chris Robshaw and Nick Easter.Livewire: Jack Clifford scores against the Barbarians8. Billy VunipolaCurrent number of caps: 21Age at start of RWC 2019: 26Addressing the press last week, shortly after Billy Vunipola’s knee injury had ruled the No 8 out of the current World Cup, Mike Catt said the Saracen had “another two or three World Cups left in him.” It was no exaggeration. If the younger Vunipola can consistently reproduce his 2015 Six Nations efforts, he will be spoken about in the same conversations as Sergio Parisse and Kieran Read by the time his career is done. More responsibility – maybe even vice-captaincy – could help him hit those levels.Replacements16. Luke Cowan-DickieCurrent number of caps: 1Age at start of RWC 2019: 26A rough diamond that will thrive with a bit of polishing, and some guidance from Dylan Hartley and Tom Youngs – either of whom could contest the third hooker berth with young Jack Walker.17. Mako VunipolaCurrent number of caps: 26Age at start of RWC 2019: 28You only need to look at his club displays, both domestically and in big European clashes, to gauge his star quality.18. Kieran BrookesCurrent number of caps: 15Age at start of RW 2019: 29Another tighthead joining Northampton, Brookes is on the verge of a career-defining period.19. Courtney LawesCurrent number of caps: 42Age at start of RWC 2019: 30If he wants it enough, he will be a big part of England’s next chapter. It is as simple as that.20. Nathan HughesCurrent number of caps: 0Age at start of RWC 2019: 28June 2016 is the month Fiji-born Hughes qualifies on residency. The rangy offloader will bring a game-breaking edge to England not long after that.Incoming: Nathan Hughes qualifies for England in June 201621. Dan RobsonCurrent number of caps: 0Age at start of RWC 2019: 27A sniping scrum-half ambitious enough to take on Joe Simpson for a first-team spot at Wasps from this coming season, Robson has all the tools.22. Owen FarrellCurrent number of caps: 35Age at start of RWC 2019: 27He cops ridiculous flak from armchair supporters, but is an invaluable lieutenant offering charisma and experience. Born leader: Maro Itoje is a candidate to lead England at Rugby World Cup 2019 23. Jonathan JosephCurrrent number of caps: 15Age at start of RWC 2019: 28All bases are covered in the starting backline, so Joseph’s guile is a great option to unlock stubborn opponents. Of course, if Tuilagi heads to Toulouse, Joseph will be ensconced in the number 13 shirt. Elliot Daly is another, possibly more versatile, candidate.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click herelast_img read more

Champions Cup: Stade Francais backrow Jono Ross has Leicester in his sights

first_imgWhile they are struggling in the Top 14, reigning champs Stade Francais are hoping to upset the Welford Road faithful says Stade Francais No 8 Jono Ross TAGS: Leicester Tigers For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Happier times: Stade Francais’ form has deserted them in the Top 14RW: Why have Stade Francais performed better in the Champions Cup this season?JR: Most of us hadn’t played in the competition so qualifying for the Champions Cup was a massive achievement for a lot of players. The guys have been very worked up for each match. I wouldn’t say we feel under less pressure than we do in the Top 14 but obviously relegation has been in the backs of our minds and maybe our confidence has been lower in the league.RW: How do you assess Leicester?JR: They’re an all-round quality side. They have a great set-piece with Dan Cole and Marcos Ayerza really good at scrum time, and their line-out functions well. They also have good ball players in the backline who can score good tries. One guy there [in the Leicester squad] is a good friend of mine, Mike Williams, and so I know it’s a tough place to be a part of it and that helps them a lot come game-time because they’re a tough side to play against.Platform: Dan Cole is one of the Leicester forwards Ross ratesRW: One of the tries of this season’s Champions Cup was scored by 20-year-old Stade flanker Sekou Macalou. How do you rate him?JR: He’s a massive talent, as he showed with that wonderful try against Munster. He’s still a bit raw and has a lot to learn…but he has all the attributes to be a world-class player and some of his scores in the gym are through the roof. But it’s now up to him to put his head down, work really hard and learn off some of the world-class loose forwards we have at Stade Francais, like Sergio Parisse, Antoine Burban and Willem Alberts.RW: Have you been picking the brains of Sergio and the other international players?JR:Yes. It’s been great to mix with all of these guys, share different views and ideas, and learn from each other. We have different strengths and weaknesses but by pooling our resources we can bring out the best in each other and that’s only going to be beneficial to the club.RW: Do you still dream of playing for the Springboks?JR: Like most boys growing up in South Africa I dreamt of playing for the Boks but when I came to France I left those dreams behind. Now I just try and perform every week for Stade and make the most of living in Paris.Familiar faces: Ross plays alongside Springbok backrow Willem AlbertsRW: For once Leicester Tigers have been overshadowed by the city’s football team. Do you know why?JR: Yes, I follow the Premier League. I’ve actually been to watch a few games, including Chelsea and Manchester United. It’s amazing what Leicester have done in the space of 12 months, from being threatened with relegation to where they are now. No one can really explain it but I think it’s always great in professional sport to see an underdog doing well. Thriving: Jono Ross has been a hit with the Stade Francais supporters From Blue Bull to Paris pink, South Africa loose forward Jono Ross recently signed a new deal with Stade Francais that will keep him at the club until 2020, having initially arrived in the French capital in 2014 as a medical joker for David Lyons. On the eve of their trip to Leicester to tackle the Tigers in the Champions Cup quarter-final clash, the 25-year-old Ross spoke to Rugby World about what’s gone wrong with the Top 14 champions this season and what hope they have of causing an upset at Welford Road. Rugby World: Was it an easy decision to extend your Stade Francais contract?Jono Ross: Yes. I’m really happy at the club. I’ve found a place where I can be myself and I think that in the last 18 months I’ve played the best rugby of my life.RW: Did any South Africans sides express an interest in bringing you home?JR: I didn’t have any offers from South Africa. I had some interest from clubs in the UK, and being English qualified I took that into consideration, but I’m really happy with the set-up at Stade Francais.RW: What’s your English connection?JR: My grandmother is English, but obviously at the moment England have a really good back-row and for me it would be difficult to go somewhere in the hope that maybe I would get a cap.Power-play: Jono Ross was a big ball-carrier for the BluesRW: Why have you played your best rugby since arriving in France?JR: When Gonzalo Quesada [Stade Francais director of rugby] contacted me I felt really wanted. He liked me as a player and gave me the freedom and confidence to play as I want to do. That’s been key for me, and it feels like I’ve found a rhythm and a home here in Paris.RW: How do you find the anonymity of Paris compared to Pretoria?JR: I left the Bulls in a difficult circumstances because I was under a lot of pressure and taking lot of flak during the time I was captain. Pretoria is small place, rugby mad, and to be honest coming to Paris has been a breath of fresh air. I can go out with my girlfriend to a coffee shop without being noticed, and there’s also the opportunities to go travelling within Europe. We love Paris, particularly at this time of year.RW: How do explain Stade Francais going from champions last season to relegation contenders this year?JR: The World Cup was difficult for the club. We won just one game in that period, which was a bang to our confidence, and we’ve struggled ever since. Then we lost more key players during the Six Nations. But they shouldn’t be used as excuses. At the end of the day the fault lies we us, the players, because we just haven’t been good enough.last_img read more

Why Exeter Chiefs are crucial to England’s future

first_imgExeter Chiefs have continually impressed in the top flight, so will England make the most of their talented players and coaches? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS While Leicester’s win in football’s Premier League has dominated the news agenda, there has been something going on in Devon for years now, which will serve the England rugby team well for ages. Or at least it should do.If you are not already a fully paid-up member of the Chiefs Tribe then it is a shade of odds-on that your second favourite team in the Aviva Premiership hails from Exeter. Like Leicester City, who have just battered down the barricades of football’s elite and become the second result everyone looks for, Exeter have smashed the established order. We don’t know if Claudio Ranieri’s men are here to stay but the Chiefs certainly are.Ranieri will never get the England job but if Rob Baxter, who has performed miracles at Exeter, does not get a crack at it one day there is something seriously wrong.When they first arrived in the upper echelon of English rugby in 2010, Exeter were expected to go straight back down with a patronising wave from the big boys after they had been well and truly put in their place. But, six years later, they are still about and you will never get 5,000-1 on them winning the Premiership. You can’t even get 5-1 on them winning this time around.Smooth operator: Rob Baxter has guided Exeter’s rise superbly. Photo: Getty ImagesIn between times they’ve got better every year. They got into Europe’s top competition in 2012, won an LV= Cup in 2014, made the knockout stages of the Champions Cup this year and are now in the Premiership play-offs for the first time. Tony Rowe, the Exeter chairman, thinks his side will win the title sooner or later. It may not be this year but it is not a million years away.Off the field they are turning a profit, staged World Cup matches at Sandy Park and have one of the slickest, and most open, media operations going where almost nothing seems to be too much trouble. They turn up on time for press sessions. It will never catch on.And they like a beer at the right time, too, which in this sanitised age is no bad thing. In fact, Baxter has been known to take his squad away to places like Benidorm to blow the froth off a couple as he reckons that is one of the best ways to get new recruits introduced to the rest of the group. And you wouldn’t mind a seat on the team bus on the way home after a decent away win or even a defeat.Baxter says: “We are a bit beyond the lads getting on the smash every Saturday, but we know when to enjoy ourselves and that’s really important.”Try machine: Thomas Waldrom tops the charts with 13 league tries so far this season. Photo: Getty ImagesThat is all very nice, and one up for the old school, but none of this really helps you play rugby though, and Exeter can really play rugby. Wasps have been on the up-and-up this season and knocked the Chiefs out of the Champions Cup in the game of the tournament so far at the quarter-final stage. Wasps won that heart-stopper 25-24 thanks to Jimmy Gopperth’s late conversion and you would have given them more than half a chance in the recent sold-out Premiership game in Devon.But Exeter routed them 24-3 at a ground where they have only been beaten once since January 2015, and that was by Saracens. Wasps hardly got a sniff all day as the Chiefs put them through the mincer – and they will be doing it to other teams for a long time to come.From Rowe downwards through Baxter and his assistant coaches to the support staff and the people who work in the club office, Exeter are ten out of ten material – they have just won the A League as well. No wonder players want to join them.Thomas Waldrom has been rejuvenated since his move from Leicester – he admitted Baxter buying him a chocolate muffin in a motorway service station when they were discussing his shift to the West Country tempted him. Geoff Parling and Julian Salvi have both been around the block and saw something they liked down Sandy Park way. And now the rest of the rugby world like what they see.Country’s call: Henry Slade in action at RWC 2015 – will we see Exeter coaches donning the rose too? Photo: Getty ImagesBut Exeter are not just a bunch of old lags. Henry Slade, Jack Nowell and Luke Cowan-Dickie have all come through the system and been capped by England, and it would not be a shock if Dave Ewers got the nod from Eddie Jones to tour Australia in the summer too.It is just a shame that Baxter will not be down there as well in some capacity. He was a roaring success when he did a shift as forwards coach on England’s tour to Argentina in 2013 but he has also decided the Saxons gig in South Africa this summer is not for him. Leap of faith: Jack Nowell celebrates his try in Exeter’s 24-3 win over Wasps. Photo: Getty Images TAGS: Exeter Chiefs Jones says it is part of his remit to leave the England job in the hands of English coaches when he passes over the reins in 2019. He’s got a few into the system but Baxter would be this reporter’s pick to head up the whole thing when the Australian finally fulfils his promise to head off to Barbados and watch cricket. And you won’t get 5,000-1 on that.Read an exclusive interview with Exeter lock Geoff Parling in the current issue of Rugby World ­and for the latest subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

England and Saracens stars the driving force behind Sarries RFC

first_img Rugby has had its fair share of tawdry headlines in recent months; allegations of on-field cheating, player strikes, dissatisfaction with residency laws, hiring and the firing of coaches and internecine squabbling between administrators. It’s enough discontent to leave guardians of the game feeling rugby is in danger of losing its soul.Fortunately, for all the brouhaha swirling around the elite level of the game, there are significant efforts being made away from the back pages that do rugby a great deal of credit.Every Monday evening in Barnet, a leafy part of North London, you’ll find an inspiring coaching session in full swing, which has extra resonance during Autism Awareness week.The Saracens Foundation have been running a pioneering programme for kids with autism and other learning disabilities for over two years, with student volunteers putting the aspiring rugby players through their paces. One Saracens player to lend his considerable expertise is England hooker Jamie George. “As a trustee of the Sarries Foundation I’ve been involved for a couple of years. The fact it’s the only programme of its kind in terms for helping kids with autism and other learning difficulties through rugby make it worthwhile,” he says, while preparing for his Champions Cup quarter-final against Glasgow.Helping hand: Will Fraser and Jamie George lend their support to Sarries RFCFrom his regular visits to Allianz Park on Monday nights, George says the overwhelming impression left is of the happiness it brings to not only kids but their parents. “Seeing the reaction of the parents was really powerful. Lots of them are full-time carers and the training session affords them a couple of hours to relax, chat to other parents, play cards or even catch 40 winks because it’s a 24/7 care. That’s invaluable.”Other members of the Sarries squad to pop down and get involved include Neil de Kock, Will Fraser and Chris Ashton. All are keen to help pass on their hard-earned experience.George, a lifelong Sarries man born in Welwyn-Garden-City, says he was attracted to the programme because he felt like he could make a difference.“This programme jumped out at me, alongside another initiative with Feltham Young offenders institution. If you speak to Ashy and Will, they’re in the same boat. It’s had a real impact on them. Sarries encourage us to broaden our personal development and giving up two hours of our time is the least we can do.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Final words are left to George. “When I first attended, there were only five or six kids and they’re still with us. When I see them they give me a big hug and a high-five – something they’d never have done before. The change in their character and confidence levels is remarkable. I’ve never seen anything like it.” Heading up the programme is Foundation manager Tom Gamage, who explains the background to the enterprise. “The aim was to go into local schools and colleges and create a disability rugby team for kids with a high functioning disabilities like ADHD, autism and Downs Syndrome where they can learn vital life skills through sport. As well as core rugby skills, we help with sociability as some guys struggle to interact. Our motto is to focus on everyone’s ability, not their disability.”Backed by Sarries sponsor, Alan Day VW, who actively get involved, with managing director Paul Tanner taking a hands-on role, Gamage explains they can host up to 18 kids with volunteers having induction evenings and the opportunity to upskill in dealing with challenging situations. “I get most satisfaction from seeing the progression made by the kids who have bought into the club. Many are season-ticket holders and mascots, while one of the lads has started to work in the club shop helping with stock-taking.”Holding the bags; George takes part in a Sarries RFC training sessionGamage stresses that the participation of the Champions Cup and Premiership title holders is fundamental to the programme’s continued success. “To have someone as high-profile as Ashy (Chris Ashton) give up his rest day is a credit to him. Having a little chat with the players, where the common thread is rugby, makes all the difference to the kids.”When asked for inspiring personal stories, Gamage points to squad captain Mark Sindole, who has been with the initiative from the start. “Mark’s progressed up the ranks. He has high-functioning autism and can get frustrated putting his point across which leads to anxiety but he is now helping younger members with their decision-making which is helping them in everyday life.”At the end of the season, the squad are going on tour to Coventry to coincide with Sarries last game of the season, against title rivals Wasps. “There will be a lot of travel planning involved. Many of them don’t get to travel outside the M25 because of their special needs but with the help of volunteers and staff members, we’ll be able to organise a meting with like-minded people.”As for the future, Gamage says the Sarries Sport Foundation would like to see the programme taken up elsewhere. “The more volunteers involved, the bigger numbers we can have. I know Worcester Warriors have started something and we’d like to see local rugby clubs in the area take on this initiative with our support. Most clubs have a Firsts, Seconds, Veterans and Women’s team, so why not have a disability team?center_img Day job: Jamie George in Champions Cup action against Toulon During World Autism Awareness week, RW focuses on a worthwhile initiative taking place behind the scenes at Allianz Parklast_img read more

Five reasons the pressure is on the All Blacks ahead of the Third Test

first_imgThe All Blacks are in the unfamiliar position of going into the Third Test on the back of a loss and they know the onus is on them to right the wrongs from Wellington Momentum shiftBottling momentum in sport is a precious commodity. Before and after the First Test, it was the All Blacks who gave off an insouciant, laid-back air. If there was an edge during training – in public at least – it was hard to pick up. In essence, the All Blacks emitted a low-level confidence borne out of winning 46 games at home, and only three losses in three years.Momentum shift: The Lions have renewed belief after sneaking the win in WellingtonThat all changed on Saturday evening in Wellington, where despite having the fairly large caveat that they were shorn of a man for 55-minutes, they still lost after edging into a nine-point cushion with 21 minutes left on the clock. The fact the Lions were able to claw their way back into the game, and finish with a flurry, will ensure the momentum is with them as we enter the final week of the tour.Midfield conundrumHow the New Zealand public hark back to the days of stability in midfield. Nearly a decade with the ultra-reliable Conrad Smith and explosive Ma’a Nonu, provided some yin and yang to the No 12 and 13 shirt and that all-important, balance. In the space of two games, the All Blacks have lost both first-choice centres. Ryan Crotty pulled up lame in the first Test with a hamstring tear and is a big doubt for the Auckland decider, and Sonny Bill Williams has four weeks to deal with the ignominy of being the first All Black to be sent off in 50 years.In from the cold: Malakai Fekitoa could be parachuted straight back into the starting line-upThe rapid recall of rumoured Toulon-target Malakai Fekitoa points to a reprisal of the Lienert-Brown-Fekitoa partnership we saw in last year’s Rugby Championship, especially with the squat, explosive Ngani Laumape only having 55 minutes of Test experience in his locker. Saturday could be an occasion tried and tested combinations.Lions finding beliefIn recent days, the Lions have confounded the critics – and they’ve been queuing up out here in New Zealand. They were widely backed to be on the end of a humiliating 3-0 Blackwash, but their 24-21 victory at the Westpac pointed to a side not ready to be written off. Warren Gatland’s astute selection paid off, with Owen Farrell and Johnny Sexton’s varied distribution causing the All Blacks problems. “The Lions need to score at least four tries a game if they are to have a chance of beating the All Blacks.” That was the common consenus before the tour, but two games into the Series, the Lions lead the All Blacks, four tries to three. In Wellington, the Lions kept the All Blacks scoreless for the first time since 1998, and for all the vim and vigour shown by Reiko Ioane in the first Test, he had a much tougher time in the second Test, spilling the ball late on and looking vulnerable defensively.Rich potential: For all his undoubted talent, Reiko Ioane is still learningLikewise, Waisake Naholo looked a millions dollars going forward but vulnerable when he was turned. With Israel Dagg smarting from being bumped by Taulupe Faletau, Hansen will to toy with re-introducing Julian Savea for some experience and proven firepower. TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Fight of flight: The All Blacks know they can’t make mistakes against an improving Lions side On the front foot: Sean O’Brien was part of an improved performance up frontUp front, too, the response from the tight five to an underwhelming First Test was uncompromising. With the balance in the backrow seemingly found with the introduction of Sam Warburton, there’s no reason the Lions can’t continue to build on promising combinations.

Sean Fitzpatrick told the story of not being able to set foot outside for three days and Kieran Read, himself, just back from injury, will be feeling the weight of expectation on his broad shoulders in the coming days.Big expectations: Steve Hansen is keeping calm but he knows nothing less than victory will be acceptedWith the media and public expecting, nay demanding, a convincing Series win, Steve Hansen’s men know they dare not slip up, and if the scores are tight as we enter the final quarter, many would argue it will be the hosts who will be feeling the heat, something Steve Hansen alluded to earlier. “The big thing about when you lose is that it’s painful isn’t it? It sharpens the mind, it sharpens the attitude. You look at things probably a little deeper than you normally do.” There will be no margin for error.Selection posers out-widelast_img read more

Church of South India diocese to challenge ruling on properties

first_img February 22, 2012 at 3:21 am I would like to bring some of the facts to the notice of readers and a warning at the end of my message. UBMC has been playing hide and seek right from the start, the congregation has been kept in the dark about some facts. The facts are…• As per Sec 15 of CSI contusion, it is clear that UBMC cannot join CSI.• Let’s go back to world war 1 to understand the scenario. UBMC is of German origin. When the British confiscated properties belonging to Germany the Germans left the country. The British government in 1935 handed over UBMC trust which is re registered with charity commission (Belgaum) named as UBMC trust society. As per the specifications of the trust deed the properties and the assets will continue to exist with the beneficiaries that is UBMC, the properties or assets cannot be transferred to any other trust . Also the trust cannot be liquidated.• In 1968 UBMC called for a general meeting of all UBMC pastors and declared that they have joined CSI, some of the pastors of UBMC opposed the idea, but this opposition was not taken into consideration, and a merger resolution was passed.• The opposition party from UBMC went to court, high court and finally supreme court that the merger resolution not valid.• In 1988 the supreme court passed the judgment that the merger resolution is valid, but there was no mention about the properties or institutions, the judgment simply meant that UBMC can worship/gather/meet together with CSI as they wish. However the court was silent when it came to properties or institutions belonging to UBMC.• Nov 2011, the UBMC (opposition party) has won in Hon High court, which is what Bishop J.S. Sadananda is talking about.• The drama created by UBMC (merger party) or shall we call them Ex UBMC, still continues till today with the help of few handful pastors, and they are deceiving the congregation.• They should stop all these nonsense and let CSI be CSI. UBMC which has udapi, mangalore & kasargoad, etc. let them function as UBMC.Warning: UBMC cannot join CSI or vice versa, according the CSI constitution of sec 15.Message to Bishop J.S. SadanandaPrevious bishops have kept the congregation in the dark, but I would like to warn you that you cannot win the case no matter what, because of CSI constitution sec 15. Also the diocese has sold many properties under your administration, even though you do not have the rights to do so. This is blatant cheating and misappropriation of power, hence sooner or later you will face this in court.Hassan, Mysore, Mandya Chickmangalore and chamrajnagar, these congregations have the right to get together and can elect our own bishop, because you do not have the right to control us. This is in line with the judgment from the Hi-court.General OpinionDue to the havoc created among simple minded people (UBMC and CSI) there was a murder that happened in a family in Anandpura congregation. Due to the power madness of leaders from UBMC such terrible death took place, leaders who belong to these institutions at that time are answerable for such terrible death among us. Are we not called to be Christians who are supposed to be peace lovers and walking in the footsteps of Jesus?Suggestion to UBMC (Mangalore, Udapi, Kasrgoad & Madekeri)Since you have upheld the original UBMC ethos, also the Hon. High Court has also declared in your favor you can continue to work promote UBMC as usual.Any replies questions please contact : [email protected] [Ecumenical News International] A diocese of the Church of South India (CSI) is preparing an appeal against a court order that has virtually stripped it of more than half its churches and institutions, inherited from the Basel Mission church.“We are preparing a strong appeal to get this order quashed. We are hopeful that our appeal will be upheld by the (federal) Supreme Court,” Bishop J.S. Sadananda of CSI’s Karnataka Southern Diocese told ENInews Feb. 3 in a telephone interview.The high court of Karnataka on Jan. 23 had ruled that the CSI diocese can no longer manage 40 of its 80 churches as well as over two dozen schools, hospitals and other institutions, citing technicalities in the transfer of these properties from the United Basel Mission Church in India (UBMC).The UBMC, based in the west coast of India, had not joined in 1947 the CSI union, which was formed from the merger of Anglican and Protestant churches and is one of the oldest church unions in the world. The UMBC merged with the CSI in 1968 and transferred its properties to the CSI in 1972.Some of the Basel Mission church members who objected to the church union, Sadananda pointed out, challenged it in court. The legal dispute went all the way to the Supreme Court which in 1988 upheld validity of the “merger” of the Basel Mission and the CSI.“The [present] high court verdict against us is based more on technicalities [of the transfer of properties]. We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will uphold [the appeal] as it has already approved the merger of the Basel Mission church with CSI,” Sadananda noted.Despite the negative verdict, he said, the high court has given 90 days for the CSI diocese to appeal the verdict, after which the court would hand over the administration of churches and institutions in dispute to a government receiver.

This dispute is the game above our head without our knowledge and will we become the prey for the games of spiritual religion should be part of life and enhance the progress of its member but here valuable contribution of t he present generation and countless scarifies of missionaries are mistaken and misused by few people for their primary or secondary gain. church lost its sanctity theology is personalized and redefined for their personal need and acquisition of personal wealth or emphasizing their personal ethos . The protestant Christian society is mislead by creating fight and vengeance within so that our so called spiritual leaders can rule as they wish by keeping members at dark and directionless . ‘Yes brother they killed our GOD “and continue killing. I pray that my brothers and sisters can understand the filthy politics and come out of it, to build churches where there is clarity of spirituality and culture and also to understant the their spirutal ownershipis not only their rights but responsibilities too and to go back to the glorious days of contribuitng protestant christian community not as “Protesting community” Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Johnson Benet says: Rector Collierville, TN Rector Smithfield, NC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Washington, DC Featured Events Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Church of South India diocese to challenge ruling on properties Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET February 11, 2012 at 1:50 am I think Mr. J.S.Sadanda has not read the judgment copie of the high court as well Supreme court.The Supreme court never approved the merger of ubmc wioth csi it is false claim in high court also he and csi argued the same in contempt case and in present case too. Even after the judgment Mr.Sadanada singing the same song.In this judgment court never appointed the reciver it is directed to district Court mangalore appoint new trustees of ubmc. Mr. Sadananda cannot fool public. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS February 12, 2012 at 6:28 am It seems CSI has not learned its lesson. They are obviously scared of answering hundreds of people who have purchased properties/rights from them. How will they compensate them? The Hon’ble High Court has said that even a decree is not necessary to declare the regd. documents executed by CSITA as void and invalid. The Bishop is again playing with the words and committing contempt of Court. The Hon’ble Supreme Court never stated in it’s decision that the merger is valid. It only stated that the resolution is valid but at the same time also stated that it is not implemented endorsing the pain taken by the Hon’ble High court in coming to the conclusion that the merger resolution is not implemented. He has already committed contempt of Court by forcibly taking physical possession of the UBMC Amanna Memorial Church at Haleyangadi through his henchmen, after pronouncement of the decision is Scheme suit.

We need to work better with them,” he concluded.Dr. Gottfried Hirnschall, director of the HIV department at the World Health Organization, told ENInews that faith-based health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa play a “tremendous role” in providing services, especially where efforts from the government and the private health sector are weak.Sally Smith, partnership adviser and focal point for faith and religion organizations  at UNAIDS, said there is a “huge potential to scale-up” faith-based services, and noted the service they deliver far outweighs the number of grants they receive from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.A new UNAIDS study, “Together We Will End AIDS,” released on 18 July ahead of the upcoming XIX International AIDS Conference to be held in Washington, D.C. from 22-27 July, says Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest number of people living with HIV (23.5 million), new infections (1.7 million), and deaths due to AIDS (1.2 million).
