Championship blog: Round 20 wrap

first_img… And finallyBristol welcome Rotherham to the Memorial ground on Friday night in the B&I Cup for what could be a dress rehearsal for the play-offs, as the GKIPA Championship takes a break this weekend. By Richard GraingerWith three rounds remaining in Stage 1 of the Greene King IPA Championship, Bristol and London Welsh have already booked their place in the play-offs.Welsh win battle of ExilesLondon Scottish 21, London Welsh 32To the men in red, Sunday’s trip to the Athletic Ground was a huge potential banana skin on the promotion trail, having already lost twice to their former neighbours. Scottish led 14-12 at the break, and another reversal for Welsh looked on the cards.Playoffs to ponder: Burnell of London WelshBut Scottish, who were the only side outside the top four with any hope of making the play-offs, were blown away by a polished second half performance, with tries from Dan Browne and a late score from the powerful Joe Ajuwa. Alex Davies, who spent 10 minutes in the bin for a deliberate knock-on, added 17 points with the boot and Seb Jewell added another five.Head coach Justin Burnell later took his men down the road to the Old Deer Park for a beer at his own expense to celebrate progress to the next stage.“Unfortunately I’ve got to foot the bill now,” said Burnell. “It will cost me, but I’ve got no problem with that… our goal was to get into the top four.”But Burnell was quick to lower expectations for the two-legged knockout stage saying, “I think we’re the dark horses. Bristol are a very good side and so too are Leeds and Rotherham, but we’ve lost the least amount of the games and conceded the least amount – we’re not a bad little team.”Bristol romp to record league winBristol 82, Ealing Trailfinders 28When is a rout not a rout? The answer to this is when you score twelve tries but still concede a try bonus point. Ealing stuck to the task throughout — even when down to 13 men. And in what was more of a romp than a rout, nine different Bristol players touching down.Ealing, now on their second pint in the Last Chance Saloon, were blown away by an emphatic display of attacking rugby, but a performance that bore the hallmark of Bristol’s season: a lack of ruthless defence when the opposition had the ball.“We need to focus on being as ruthless as we can,” said Director of Rugby Andy Robinson, “Ealing were a nuisance and we expected that.”Ealing now face Nottingham and Plymouth — two sides who will be putting their feet up at the end of Stage 1 — as well as Rotherham, who won’t. Jersey play both Exiles sides and face a tricky trip to Bedford on the final Saturday. With an eight-point gap, matters still aren’t quite settled at the foot of the division.Leeds lack concentration in final quarter LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Nottingham 20, Leeds Carnegie 27In his sevens days: Rob Vickerman of LeedsTries from David Doherty, Oli Goss and replacement Rob Vickerman and 12 points from the boot of Ian Hughes at Meadow Lane on Sunday gave Carnegie a 3-27 point lead in the 65th minute, but the Green and Whites fought back to pick up a losing bonus point. Ryan Hough, Henry Purdy and Javiah Pohe crossed for the hosts with a late flourish in similar vein to Leeds’ comeback against Bristol last Sunday. This leaves Carnegie with one foot in the play-off zone.Islanders marooned by MoseleyJersey 8, Moseley 39A resounding five-try win for Moseley at St. Peter on Saturday nudged the Midlanders into seventh place. This wasn’t in the script for the Islanders, who would have looked on this fixture as the means of settling the relegation battle with Ealing once and for all. And failing to pick up even a losing bonus point could yet be costly.Wingman Simon Hunt scored a hat-trick for the visitors while Anthony Carter and Matt Williams also touched down.Despite trailing just 8-10 at the break, Jersey binned their low-risk gameplan and ran the ball from deep, conceding two interceptions in the process.Titans dish out more blues for BedfordBedford Blues 12, Rotherham 33All action: Tom Cruse for Sale in 2012Rotherham have had little difficulty in dispatching sides below them in the division, so it was business as usual at Goldington Road on Saturday, despite being reduced to 13 men in the first half. But with the Blues also losing two men to the bin, Titans’ dominated the second half with tries from Tom Cruse, Ali Birch and Dan Sanderson. The league’s top scorer, Juan Pablo Socini added18 points with the boot to pass the 300 mark for the season and keep the Titans on course for the play-offs.Pirates win the battle of the TamarPlymouth 20, Cornish Pirates 26With nothing on this game other than trans-Tamar bragging rights, Pirates shaded it with a Tom Kessell try two minutes from time. However, both sides are in action in the quarter-finals of the British & Irish Cup as Pirates face Pontypridd at the Mennaye Field on Sunday and Plymouth travel to Leeds on Friday for an 8pm kick-off.

Samoa close in on 2019 World Cup spot

first_imgSamoa take a big lead into the second leg of their RWC 2019 qualifier against Germany Expect Germany to make a few personnel changes ahead of their home leg, but if Samoa can replicate the physicality and accuracy they demonstrated here – and cut out the lapses in concentration – they are clear favourites to qualify for Japan 2019.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Matavao was crucial to his side’s win, ensuring his side played at tempo and causing Germany no end of problems with his snipes around the contact area as well as his footwork in open field.The Samoa scrum also provided a huge platform for the team to attack from, while slick hands in the back-line allowed them to be clinical out wide.They will be looking to improve at the lineout in Heidelberg in the second leg on 14 July as it did not function well in Apia, and they need to focus for the full 80 minutes. The occasional lapse here, particularly from restarts, resulted in German pressure on the Samoan line. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Samoa close in on 2019 World Cup spotSamoa are in the box seat to qualify for the 2019 Rugby World Cup after beating Germany 66-15 in the first leg of their play-off in Apia.Samoa wing Ed Fidow scored a hat-trick and scrum-half Melani Matavao got a brace as the hosts notched ten tries in all. As well as a penalty try, Alapati Leiua, Jack Lam, Joe Tekori and Dwayne Polataivao all crossed.It was a convincing win for the Samoans, with Germany struggling to cope with their physicality. A missed tackle count of nearly 40 is evidence of how often Samoa were able to punch holes in Germany’s defence. However, a 51-point winning margin puts them in a very strong position to secure a place in Pool A at Japan 2019, alongside Ireland, Japan, Russia and Scotland.Top three: Ed Fidow scored a hat-trick in Samoa’s win over Germany (Getty Images)Samoa had used their Pacific Nations Cup games against Fiji and Tonga earlier in the month to try out different combinations in the squad, and with their best team on the field here everything seemed to click.“It was a team effort and I think from the Pacific Nations Cup games we added execution,” said Samoa captain Chris Vui. “In the PNC games we made simple handling errors and I think we adjusted out game plan well. We started really well in the first 20 minutes too.“They’re a really good team and a good endurance team, so we’ll do our homework and change a few things up (ahead of the second leg).”Downbeat: Germany coach Pablo Lemoine was critical of his side’s attitude (Getty Images)Germany’s two tries came from flanker Jaco Otto but overall coach Pablo Lemoine was hugely disappointed by his side’s performance, criticising players’ attitudes in such an important game. He knows what it takes to qualify for a World Cup, too, having successfully guided Uruguay through the process ahead of the 2015 tournament.“If we’re being 100% realistic, if we want to play at that level we have to change many things, especially players’ mindsets,” said Lemoine. “Some guys are better players than they showed today and they need to show humility.“We’re looking to qualify for the Rugby World Cup and you have to respect that. Some players didn’t show the respect they should have. Their attitudes weren’t right. We expect more. This was a World Cup qualification game and they didn’t show the respect a game of this level needed. We have to change here (pointing at his head).” The grand prize: Samoa are hoping to get a shot at the Webb Ellis Cup in 2019 (Getty Images) last_img read more

Warren Gatland agrees to lead Lions to South Africa in 2021

first_img Warren Gatland agrees to lead Lions to South Africa in 2021Warren Gatland has verbally agreed a deal to take the British & Irish Lions on tour to South Africa in 2021. It will be the New Zealander’s third tour in a row as head coach.Although no paperwork has been signed yet, it is understood that terms have been agreed between the coach and the Lions officials. Gatland – who will leave his post as Wales boss at the conclusion of Rugby World Cup 2019 –will be handed the reigns again after his two successful previous trips, leading a winning tour of Australia in 2013 and a drawn series against the All Blacks in 2017.Gatland was also an assistant to Sir Ian McGeechan on the last Lions tour of South Africa, in 2009.

Since taking the Welsh job in December 2007, Gatland has led his team to three Grand Slams, finished fourth at the 2011 World Cup and become the longest-serving coach in their history. Gatland also led Wasps to three Premiership titles, one European Challenge Cup and one Champions Cup win.Gatland also coached Ireland between 1998 and 2001. Before the deciding Test match of the last tour, in New Zealand, Gatland said of his charges: “You want those big moments in sport. The players have an opportunity to leave a legacy, to do something special. You don’t want those moments to pass you by.” It looks like the former hooker could not turn down another big moment with the Lions.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest news in the world of rugby.last_img read more

Six Nations Analysis: Targeting Individual Defenders

first_imgKicks are frequently a way to put pressure on individual players. People may bemoan kicking, and admittedly it can be aimless, but it is a way to create open field and attacking opportunities. Exposed: Stuart Hogg arcs past Sebastian Negri en route to his try (Getty Images) Six Nations Analysis: Targeting Individual DefendersMost tries scored cannot be attributed to a particular moment. They are a build-up of pressure or an accumulation of small mistakes, or successes, by the defence or attack.It is one of the elements that makes rugby such a joy to watch. Every action influences something else. A missed tackle may not lead directly to a try but it may draw someone else in to make the follow-up tackle. The second defender is then out of position and space may open up in the ensuing phases.That is one way to score a try; an accumulation of pressure. The other way is to pick a perceived weak point and exploit it. If the weak point cannot hold up, you score the try.There were plenty of examples from the weekend’s Six Nations matches of teams looking to exploit weaknesses in the opposition. This is not new for teams; Australia used to defend with Bernard Foley in the five-metre channel and hooker Stephen Moore in the midfield.The logic is simple, it should be easier to defend in the five-metre channel than it is either at the back of the lineout or in the midfield when you need to make many more decisions. Teams will therefore hide their weaker defenders in the channel. The problem comes when teams spot this and exploit it.France expected Wales to put a weaker defender there at the lineout in their own 22 and drew up a nice lineout move which sent 21st lock Paul Willemse straight down the line. McNicholl was suddenly at the centre of the defensive effort and he couldn’t stop the French player. Six Nations Analysis: The Last Pass In the second feature in this new series,… France again target what they perceive as the weak link at 1:13 in this clip. Wales are defending with Johnny McNicholl in the five-metre channel. This is something that France would have picked up in their pre-match analysis – Wales did the same thing with George North two weeks ago against Ireland, something you can see at 1:32 in the clip below, when they were inside their 22. France targeted Leigh Halfpenny for their first try. Halfpenny is not a weakness under the high ball but a good kick – as Romain Ntamack delivered – and a good chase mean that the best case for Halfpenny is that he is tackled as soon as he hits the ground.You can see that as soon as Ntamack winds up for the kick Josh Adams is already dropping back and Nick Tompkins soon follows. Their job is to block the path to Halfpenny. They can get in the way and allow Halfpenny to take the catch without too much French pressure. Their second job is to play any loose balls and ensure that a Halfpenny mistake isn’t terminal.They both end up on Halfpenny’s right-hand side. That causes two problems; the first is that the full-back is now jumping into French pressure rather than being covered and the second is any loose ball that ends up to Halfpenny’s left will have no try-preventing cover. Of course, the ball does end up to the left and Anthony Bouthier scores his first try. The opening round of the Six Nations showed… Hiding players in set-piece situations has become commonplace. There is no law that says where players need to defend so it would be foolish to put your ball-playing flair fly-half, who may be lacking a little in defence, in a key defensive position. Much better to hide him on the wing, or close to the lineout.For attackers this is just an invitation to find the hidden player and go after him. It will be interesting to see if Wales continue putting their wingers in the five-metre channel for the next two games and if they do, will England and Scotland exploit that?When you watch your next Six Nations game look out for how teams try to pick off individual players. Especially look out for how teams return loose kicks. They will often target a member of the front five who finds himself utterly exposed in the wide, open space in the middle of the pitch. Expandcenter_img Six Nations Analysis: The Last Pass Collapse Sam Larner uses examples from the latest round of Six Nations matches to illustrate how teams look to exploit players Six Nations Analysis: Finishing LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Six Nations Analysis: Finishing Stuart Hogg does something similar against Italy from a kick. Again, Scotland move the point of attack away from the defensive strength. This puts pressure on flanker Sebastian Negri.The Benetton player has to cover the inside shoulder of Luca Morisi. Centre Morisi cannot drift until Negri has covered the hole. Of course, Morisi is quicker than Negri and when he does drift Negri cannot get across in time and Hogg runs through the hole.ConclusionTeams will always target individual players. Every player, even the very best in the world, have some weaknesses. Both Negri and Herring, mentioned above, are exceptional players but they will of course be at risk in the open field against somebody like Hogg or Joseph.Halfpenny is one of the very best in the business but a well-placed kick and a strong chase will always cause problems. It isn’t possible to be good enough in the air to guarantee you win the ball every time. Unfortunately for Wales the mistake becomes catastrophic because there is no cover once the knock-on occurs.MORE SIX NATIONS ANALYSIS The March 2020 issue of Rugby World magazine – a Six Nations special – is on sale now.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In the above example, Conor Murray’s kick stays infield and allows England to counter-attack. When you receive a kick or a turnover you typically want to move the point of attack. This means that you spread the ball left or right away from the strength of the defence.England immediately move the ball to the far side of the pitch to Jonathan Joseph. The act of moving the ball has forced Ireland to drift and that has exposed Rob Herring. The hooker has not been able to close the gap between himself and Josh van der Flier and the hole that is left is exacerbated by Sam Underhill and Tom Curry forming a corridor for the winger to run through.last_img read more

La Iglesia dominicana apoya a descendientes de haitianos

first_imgLa Iglesia dominicana apoya a descendientes de haitianos Cientos de miles pueden convertirse en apátridas Rector Washington, DC [Episcopal News Service] Dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana pueden convertirse en apátridas luego que el tribunal constitucional de la República Dominicana declaró sin derecho a la ciudadanía a los hijos de inmigrantes haitianos nacidos en la República Dominicana.Debido a la sentencia del tribunal, cientos de miles de descendientes de inmigrantes, la mayoría provenientes de Haití, que nacieron en la República Dominicana, ya no serán reconocidos como ciudadanos, dijo Julio Holguín, obispo [episcopal] de la República Dominicana, en un correo electrónico a ENS el 25 de octubre.“Creo que el Tribunal Constitucional ha cometido un grave error con esa sentencia, ya que vulnera los derechos de por lo menos 4 generaciones de descendientes de inmigrantes, cuya mayoría vino a la República Dominicana, mediante acuerdo entre ambos gobiernos, dominicano y haitiano, para trabajar principalmente en el corte de la caña, para la industria azucarera” dijo el Obispo.La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana sirve a comunidades haitianas en sus parroquias y misiones de todo el país. La edición de Noviembre-Diciembre de Episcopax, el periódico de la diócesis, dedica un espacio importante a defender los derechos de los dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana.La República Dominicana, con una población de 10,2 millones de habitantes, y Haití, con una población de 9,8 millones, comparten la isla de La Española. La República Dominicana es ligeramente más grande, ya que ocupa el 64 por ciento de la mitad oriental de la isla. Durante décadas, los haitianos han trabajado en los campos de caña de la República Dominicana, como empleados domésticos y en otros empleos no especializados.El 23 de septiembre, el tribunal constitucional del país, en una sentencia de 11 a favor y 2 en contra, dictaminó que la cláusula relativa a los ciudadanos en la Constitución dominicana de 1929 no debía aplicarse a los hijos de padres que no eran “residentes legales” en el momento del nacimiento de sus hijos y, además, que a subsecuentes generaciones nacidas en suelo dominicano también debía negárseles la ciudadanía.Se calcula que unas 200.000 personas de padres haitianos viven en la República Dominicana. El 24 de octubre, el tribunal instruyó a las autoridades locales a “auditar todos los registros civiles de la nación hasta junio de 1929 para determinar quiénes ya no tienen derecho a la ciudadanía”, según un artículo publicado en The New York Times.Como Holguín explicó, la sentencia del tribunal invalida no sólo los certificados de nacimiento, sino que también cuestiona la validez de otras formas de identificación, incluidos los pasaportes, y podría inhibir la capacidad de matricular en una escuela o en la universidad, de abrir una cuenta bancaria, de comprar una casa, etc.“En otras palabras, el tribunal constitucional ha decidido establecer un ‘apartheid’ en la República Dominicana” afirmó él.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.
