Top 14: Grenoble reaping rewards of consistency

first_imgGrenoble, on the other hand, are showing that on a rugby field familiarity breeds not contempt but contentment.Don’t miss Rugby World‘s preview to the 2014-15 Aviva Premiership and Guinness Pro12 seasons in the October issue – on sale now. Boys in blue: Grenoble centre Nigel Hunt celebrates after scoring a try against Bordeaux After the first three rounds of the Top 14, Rugby World looks at why sticking with a regular starting XV is paying off for Grenoble LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img The result was plain to see on Saturday when Grenoble produced arguably the all-round performance of the season against a Bordeaux side that had started the campaign with victories over Lyon and Racing. Significantly, Bordeaux arrived in Grenoble with a new half-back pairing and changes in the centre and back row.Pulling together: Grenoble have lost two of three matches but picked up bonus points in both defeatsGrenoble’s settled side gave them the edge in the set-piece with the pack producing the quick ball that allowed Wisniewski the freedom of the Stade des Alpes. The 29-year-old is a confidence player and for the first time in years he’s playing like a man who believes in himself, his team-mates and the game plan.Contrast Grenoble’s consistency in selection with Toulouse, who scraped a narrow 20-19 home win over Oyonnax on the opening day of the Top 14 season, then beat Castres, before being run ragged in La Rochelle. As is his custom these days Toulouse coach Guy Noves blamed the players, labelling their display “intolerable”, but might his selection policy have something to do with Toulouse’s dishevelled performance? Noves has picked different combinations at centre/half-back/back-row/hooker and locks in every game so how can players be expected to develop the cohesion and understanding that underpins good sides? WHICH CLUB has enjoyed the best start to the Top 14? Toulon is the obvious answer. The reigning champions lead the pack on nine points having scored 12 tries in winning two of their first three games. Then again, nine of those tries did come in the 60-19 destruction of La Rochelle ten days ago, the visitors arriving on the Cote d’Azur with one eye on the home game against Toulouse seven days later. La Rochelle won that encounter handsomely, inflicting a 37-25 defeat on Toulouse who, like Toulon in their loss to Racing Métro, failed to pick up a point in round three of the championship.There’s an argument for saying Grenoble have enjoyed the most satisfying start. They may lie eighth with seven points but no other club can boast three bonus points. They collected one on Saturday for the five tries they scored in the 37-23 win over visitors Bordeaux but more impressive were the points they picked up on the road against Clermont and Montpellier, particularly as this season bonus defensive points are awarded only to those sides finishing within five points of their opponents, not seven as in previous years.No club had such a daunting start to the season as Grenoble so to lose 30-26 to Clermont and 20-17 to Montpellier – a match they should have won had it not been for a couple of late moments of indiscipline – is a sign of the life that head coach Bernard Jackman has breathed into the squad since taking the helm in the summer.Main man: Jonathan Wisniewski has shown impressive form since his switch from Racing to GrenobleFirst there was a slew of canny signings, from Blues centre Jackson Willison to Sharks scrum-half Charl McLeod to Jonathan Wisniewski, the latter making the move from Racing Métro after being frozen out following the arrival of Jonathan Sexton. Jackman took his squad to Argentina in July for a fortnight to play two matches against the Pumas. There were a couple more warm-up games in early August so by the time the Top 14 began Jackman had a good idea of his strongest XV. And you know what? He’s stuck with it.In an age of squad rotation, Grenoble have done something remarkable in their first three matches: they’ve fielded the same combinations at half-back (McLeod & Wisniewski), centre (Nigel Hunt & Willinson), back row (Rory Grice, Henry Vanderglas & Fabien Alexandre) and the lineout, hooker Arnaud Héguy throwing to locks Ben Hand and Hendrik Roodt.last_img read more

Air New Zealand Cup – Round 4 Highlights

first_imgSaturday Aug 29, 2009 Air New Zealand Cup – Round 4 Highlights We have another cracking tries package for you today, from round 4 of the always entertaining Air New Zealand Cup’s action from last weekend.We featured young star flyhalf Aaron Cruden a few days ago, and he can be seen with a nice run for the first try for Manawatu as they faced Otago in Palmerston North.They maintained their strong start to the season by winning 19-12, with two tries to Casey Stone, and one to impressive fullback Kurt Baker.Powerful Otago wing Karne Hesketh scored after bashing over the line, then set up fullback Ben Smith for a great counter attacking try.Northland picked up a 26-23 away win over North Harbour, with their young right wing Brook Gilmore scoring a well deserved breakaway try after an intercept that left him with a lot of work to do.Canterbury beat Tasman 25-21 in Christchurch, with wing Sean Maitland scoring a nice try, showing his footballing skills on the way to the line. Dan Carter wasn’t playing, but his stand in Stephen Brett scored a classy try from some way out.Powerhouse wing Hosea Gear crossed for Wellington in their 16-15 win over Auckland, as did an unlikely source on the other wing – prop John Schwalger. Big Auckland number nine Taniela Moa linked well with Paul Williams to take a return pass and score a great try.Counties-Manukau winger Sherwin Stowers electrified their backline against Taranaki, as he set up a try for fullback Ahsee Tuala, then cracked on the pace to slide through a gap and score himself.

Democrats: No debate on climate crisis

first_imgIn a small room at Hudson Yards, a ritzy, new Manhattan retail and housing complex, 10 Democratic candidates for president took turns Sept. 4 presenting their programs on the climate crisis. Each candidate was questioned separately by CNN moderators and audience members for 40 minutes in a televised seven-hour “Climate Town Hall.” The event was not an official campaign debate.Only a preselected audience was allowed entry into the venue, in a complex designed and built to protect the wealthy from climate-related havoc and deemed an example of “eco-apartheid.” (Democracy Now, Sept. 5)This event followed the Aug. 31 vote by the Democratic National Committee not to hold a candidates’ debate specifically on climate. A single-issue debate, first proposed by candidate and Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee (who has since dropped out) was rejected by DNC Chairman Tom Perez. “I concluded the DNC could not allow individual candidates to dictate the terms of debates or limit the topics discussed,” Perez stated June 11. ( climate justice activists, including leaders of the Sunrise Movement, took up the demand for a climate debate, plugging it during a mass march outside the July 30-31 debates in Detroit. Most of the candidates voiced support.But over two-thirds of DNC delegates voted not to hold a climate debate, permitting candidate participation only in forums such as the CNN-controlled Town Hall.What are the Democrats so afraid of? Are they afraid of the emerging, comparatively progressive grouping inside their own party? Are they afraid of a Green New Deal — even though, like Roosevelt’s New Deal, the proposed GND leaves capitalist exploitation in place? Are their well-heeled campaign donors putting the screws on them?Perhaps they feared embarrassing Joe Biden. The former vice president, who pledged not to take money from the fossil fuel industry, was confronted by a Town Hall audience member about an upcoming Biden fundraiser, hosted by Andrew Goldman of natural gas company Liquid LNG. Biden immediately became defensive, insisting the company founder was not currently an executive of the corporation. Does that make a difference? Goldman has not disassociated himself from that company or the harm it helped cause. How can you say you are for climate justice and then turn around and hobnob with a fossil-industry bigwig?‘Climate pricing’ a safe ‘solution’ — for capitalismDespite the socialist baiting by Trump and his ilk, none of the 10 Democratic candidates participating in the climate forum want to get rid of capitalism. This includes Bernie Sanders. Calling for deprivatizing utility companies is as far as he’ll go — and that’s farther than any other candidate.Although she said she would hold corporations accountable, Elizabeth Warren balked when an audience member asked if she would challenge capitalism. Most of the candidates did not support an all-out ban on fracking. Although natural gas is touted as a clean alternative to petroleum and coal, the fracking process, through the release of methane gas, actually contributes to global warming.While Sanders proposes a $16 trillion version of the Green New Deal, front-runner Biden would spend only a little over a tenth of that to address the climate crisis.Nine of the ten called for “climate pricing,” formulas including “cap-and-trade” that charge companies a “price” based on carbon emissions. The World Bank has a web site promoting carbon pricing! There are two carbon-pricing bills in Congress now. One is a Republican-sponsored bill, which has the backing of Shell, Exxon-Mobil and other Big Oil companies. The other, bipartisan bill comes with a higher emissions price tag — but eliminates Environmental Protection Agency oversight for 10 years.There is no proof that these formulas work to cut emissions. The tax could be treated as merely a cost of doing business — a cost that will, if possible, be passed on to the consumer. Isn’t that how a typical capitalist handles fines when they violate workplace safety laws and environmental regulations? While doing nothing at all to remedy the underlying problem.Granted, even the weakest Democratic platform contrasts with that of climate-denying, fascistic Trump. Many of the new climate action organizations are making voter registration a priority, specifically to vote for the most climate-friendly candidate in the Democratic primary. Then they will work “to beat Trump” no matter what. But both the Democratic and Republican parties are capitalist parties. The most important thing young climate radicals can do is to stay in the streets. Strike, march, rally, sit-in, occupy, do whatever is necessary — to “shut it down” — to halt the climate catastrophe!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Court imposes prison sentences on three Rai Al Shaab journalists

The fourth journalist on trial, Ramadan Mahgoub, was acquitted. All four had been held since May. See the previous release .The court also ordered the newspaper’s closure and the seizure of all the assets of the company that owns it.“These three journalists have been convicted just for doing their job,” Reporters Without Borders said. “These verdicts are unjust and are clearly aimed at silencing the opposition press in Sudan. We firmly condemn this kind of intimidation.”Their lawyers said they would appeal. Most of the country’s newspapers decided not to bring out an issue today in protest.——————————————————————————————–18.06.2010 – Defence lawyers withdraw from trial of four journalists facing death penaltyReporters Without Borders is deeply disturbed by the conduct of the trial of four senior members of the opposition daily Rai Al Shaab – editor Ashraf Abdelaziz, deputy editor Abuzur Al Amin, political editor Altahir Ibrahim and news editor Ramadan Mahgoub – on charges of terrorism and spying.The head of the defence lawyers, Kamal Elgizuli, announced on 16 June, five days after the trial started before a criminal court in north Khartoum, that they were pulling out because the court was refusing to hear testimony from three of the four defence witnesses on the grounds that they were members of the opposition and their testimony consisted only of hearsay.“We condemn the court’s refusal, which violates the rights of the defence, and we demand that this trial conform to international standards guaranteeing the right to due process,” Reporters Without Borders said. “In a case in which journalists risk being sentenced to hang, the court cannot deprive the defence of essential witnesses.”The press freedom organisation added: “We are of the view that the journalists’ lawyers are acting with integrity. They are withdrawing out of respect for the defendants, because they want to publicly denounce the court’s violations of judicial procedure.”The lawyers gave a press conference on 16 June at which they explained that they were being prevented from performing their role and their duties adequately. The court has given the journalists three days, until 20 June, to choose new lawyers, failing which the judges themselves will appoint new defence lawyers. The trial is scheduled to resume on 21 June.If found guilty, the journalists could be sentenced to death by hanging under Sudan’s anti-terrorism law. “We are extremely shocked by the sentence the four journalists are facing just for doing their job of providing news and information,” Reporters Without Borders said.The journalists were charged with spying and terrorism after being arrested last month for publishing information that was deemed to be false.

With all the flooring options available, it’s all a matter of preference which one to choose. Here we discuss the benefits of hardwood. By FRANZ A.D. MORALES Published on Friday, July 5, 2013 | 11:46 am Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena If you were to choose between two, say, tables, which would you choose? The plastic one or the wooden one? If you’re like most Americans, you’d most likely choose the wooden table. There’s something about wood that exudes class and elegance.When it comes to flooring, you won’t be faced with a simple choice however, especially with all the types of floorings available today. But when it comes to hardwood flooring, one cannot ignore how beautiful and elegant it is compared to others.The one thing about hardwood flooring that causes most people to look towards other options though is the price. Despite being the most expensive among the most common flooring options, hardwood has its advantages and benefits that outweigh the initial premium of its price.The benefits and advantages? For one, hardwood lasts for decades. Other options may last for years, but would need eventual replacement, which means additional costs. But with hardwood, with just minimal maintenance, your initial investment can last a lifetime. That’s a one-time fee for forever flooring folks.Talking about minimal maintenance, hardwood flooring is also very easy to clean. Muddy shoes? One mopping and it’s all good.Another reason to go hardwood is that it is more hygienic. Other floorings may be dust magnets or use harmful chemicals that can affect kids, but with hardwood, you won’t have the same aromatic problems. And though you can say the same for stone and tile floors, there’s something about wood that makes a home feel warmer.Hardwood floors are also great insulators, staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In fact, just one inch of hardwood has the same insulation properties of 15 inches of concrete. Yay for nature!Aesthetic-wise, hardwood makes a home look classy and elegant, but more so than that, it is also highly customizable. You can create custom patterns using different types of wood, create massive works of art using wooden tiles, vary the tones and color for each room, etc.In short, hardwood floors need not be a single color or pattern and how it ends up looking like depends on your own creativity.In all, it all depends on what you personally prefer. Some like the coziness of carpets, while others enjoy the 60’s vibe of linoleum. Some may enjoy the cool stone tiles and its unique textures, while others think marble flooring is best. But despite your personal preferences, hardwood is always worth a look.Homeowners looking to hardwood-ify their homes, you can call Sav-On Carpet & Drapery Co. for a free estimate at (626) 795-8045.Though Sav-On is known for its carpets, company also specializes in hardwood floors.
