Wales: Five things we learned against Australia

first_imgduring the international match between Wales and Australia at the Millennium Stadium on November 30, 2013 in Cardiff, Wales. George North’s performance against Australia was world class. Genuinely world class. Not the ‘world class’ that is casually thrown around on sports phone-in programs.North was Wales’ top ball carrier (75 meters), top for clean breaks (two) and defenders beaten (three). His second try was a textbook illustration of his skill set – his power and lateral movement beat Christian Lealiifano, Scott Fardy and Will Genia in one fluid move. But whilst his second try was more intricate it was his first try that shows his impact on defenders. Having kicked through a reasonably innocuous low running kick, he chased the ball into the Australian 22 where the ever-reliable Adam Ashley-Cooper would ordinarily scoop up the ball and clear. However the presence of North turned Ashley-Cooper into a twitchy mess – the sight of 6ft 4in’ and 17 stone mass of sinew can even affect a 91 cap Wallaby.Stunning display: George North again shone against OzNorth capitalised on the mistake and scored Wales’ opening try. The Northampton winger wasn’t part of the IRB’s shortlist for World Player of the Year. But if he continues to play as he is North will surely win that title in the next decade.Incredible defenceA gap, no matter how small, clearly exists between Wales and Australia. But there certainly isn’t a gap when it comes to defence. Whilst there were slight issues with defensive positioning in the midfield, Wales once again had a tackle completion of 90%. Scott Williams made an incredible 16 tackles and the ever-impressive Toby Faletau made 18.But whilst the effectiveness and technical efficiency of the tackling was impressive it was the aggression of the hits that deserves comment. There was a time when you’d only see a single ‘show reel’ tackle in 80 minutes of rugby. On Saturday Wales made two in a matter of seconds. George North’s massive hit on Adam Ashley-Cooper was followed by Richard Hibbard’s monumental smack on Ben Mowen. Hibbard’s hit was particularly brutal. It was like watching the one of the Great White sharks of False Bay hitting a seal pup from the side… whilst wearing a resplendent blonde wig. Quite a sight. Struggling to come to terms with the loss: Wales have now lost nine of their last Test matches against AustraliaBy Paul WilliamsWe’ve been here beforeI was tempted to save myself a bit of work this week by cutting and pasting the opening paragraph from my previous six Wales v Australia articles. Yet again Wales lost by a narrow margin in a thoroughly engaging encounter.Wales were defeated 26 – 30, which is a point differential of 13%. This neatly sums up the difference between the two teams. With the exception of the Wales’ defence, Australia were 10% to 15% better in most aspects of the game. Wales secured 48% of the possession and 43% of the territory. And whilst both teams’ lineouts struggled to deliver clean possession it is fair to say the Welsh lineout had bigger issues with a completion of only 69.2%. But whilst Wales were only 10-15% off the pace in most areas, there were others where the gap was substantially larger.Unusually, Wales were bested at the breakdown. Michael Hooper’s agility and body position wreaked havoc with Wales’ ruck speed. The Wallabies’ handling was in a different class to Wales’. In close quarters the Wallabies’ offloads seemed to be almost magnetic – even 50/ 50 offloads were rarely spilled. This isn’t to say that Wales weren’t competitive – they were. But small margins are magnified in big games. Wales still have some way to go.An unsettling talent: Quade CooperUnstructured play unsettles WalesIn recent years Wales have fared better against teams who execute predictable patterns, but Australia’s unstructured approach unsettled them. With Quade Cooper at outside-half the Wallabies are wonderfully unpredictable and his decision to play an expansive passive game was a joy to witness. The Wallabies ran the ball an incredible 735m compared to Wales’s 375m.Cooper’s passing, combined with Israel Folau’s remarkable lateral movement, caused Wales huge problems. Cooper regularly fired 25 yard passes over the top of Wales’ blitz defence where space was plentiful. It explains why the Wallaby back-three each carried the ball over 100m. The Australian backline demonstrated their Super Rugby skillsets at every opportunity with Cooper delivering more ‘cat flaps’ than petsdirect.com. There are those who criticise Cooper for his defence, as was ably demonstrated when Mike Phillips brushed him aside in the 41st minute, however the odd missed tackle should be forgiven when you can throw ‘miss three’ passes with such accuracy.George North. Stunning LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS No scrumsThere were no scrums in the opening 46 minutes of the game, which is a remarkable statistic. There were only six scrums in total. When the first scrum did arrive it resulted in a reset which sucked over a minute of game time from the clock. The paucity of scrums had two implications. Firstly, the absence of Adam Jones from the Welsh team had a limited impact and therefore cannot be touted as an excuse for the loss. But more importantly it resulted in a thoroughly entertaining and fluid first 40 minutes.  This isn’t to say that union can do without scrums; it can’t. But Saturday illustrated what a great game union can be when it doesn’t have to deal with such a needy and fickle set-piece.last_img read more

Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Martinsville, VA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Belleville, IL The full text of the Presiding Bishop’s message follows.I’m here at Canterbury Cathedral, the mother church of the Anglican Communion, where the primates of the Communion have met, assembled and gathered by the archbishop of Canterbury. We just concluded what was a meaningful, a beautiful, indeed, a holy gathering of the primates of our Communion. We concluded our time together washing each other’s feet, following the teaching and the example of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.This wasn’t just a meeting. This was not just a gathering. This was, as a friend of mine often says, a holy convocation. We gathered in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and we did our work together in agreement and disagreement, following and in his spirit. Early on, we began with a retreat led by the archbishop of Canterbury with meditations and long periods of silence where we prayed for the spirit of God to dwell within us and lead us.Soon thereafter, we entered into a time of exploring matters of great concern to the church, internal matters, preparation for Lambeth 2020 and the gathering of the bishops of our Communion, discussion of how that would unfold and some of the preliminary plans.We continued for a day discussing, at some length and with some depth and genuine honesty and Christian charity, the decision of our brothers and sisters in the Scottish Episcopal Church to make provision for members of the same sex to receive the blessing of marriage.We then continued and entered into a discussion for the next several days of the ways the church can follow Jesus Christ into the world as his witnesses. We discussed at great length the reality and the need for Anglicans throughout the world to really live as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, following in his footsteps and living his teachings and in his spirit. We discussed the practicalities of helping our church become more disciple-focused and genuinely to take seriously the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations. That then led us into a long and extended conversation about evangelism in and by the Anglican Communion in the world, inviting others into that relationship with Christ, sharing our stories and our journeys with our God.We then moved on to discuss the environment in which we live – God’s created world – and to hear the stories of the impact of climate change on the lives of fellow Anglicans and [all] human beings throughout the world, especially in the developing world. We heard stories of food shortages. We heard stories of growing seasons shortened. We heard stories of unmitigated weather that is now a danger and [is] preventing people from having the kind of abundant life that is intended for us all.In the midst of this time, the shootings in Las Vegas happened and I must tell you that my fellow primates gathered around and prayed. They gathered around me and gathered around you. We prayed and wrote a statement, and longed for the day when we in our country will not see deaths by guns.Then, we continued engaged the world even more deeply. We engaged the issues of migration and immigration, human trafficking and heard stories from throughout the Anglican Communion about how the church is actually trying to make God’s world humane and habitable for all of God’s children.We went on and discussed so many things that have to do with the very life of the world. We spent most of our time, to be very honest, not talking about internal things in the church but, things external where the church can bring her ministry of following Jesus to bear.This was a gathering where, in the words of the late Archbishop William Temple, we really did reflect the church being the church. William Temple once said the church is the only society that does not exist for benefit of its own members; it exists for the sake of the world.And, it may well be that, as the primate of Jerusalem and the Middle East and Cyprus concluded his presentation of interfaith relations, it may be that this prayer will be our prayer and a prayer for us all:May the babe of Bethlehem be yours to tend. May the boy of Nazareth be yours for friend. May the man of Galilee his healing hand send. May the Christ of Calvary his courage lend. May the Risen Lord his promise send and his holy angels defend you to the end.From Canterbury Cathedral, God bless you. God keep you. May God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.

However, I do not sense that there is anything to criticize in this message by Bishop Curry.To me, the main words and phrases stand out as necessary for a Christian witness in our times:“live as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ”, “following in his footsteps and living his teachings”, “inviting others into that relationship with Christ”, “become more disciple-focused and genuinely to take seriously the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations”, “make God’s world humane and habitable for all of God’s children”.We live in a time of great peril, with the threat of nuclear war increasing at the hands of insane dictators and religio-fascist governments. Human slavery, environmental destruction, and the general well-being of the creation are in need of a word from the Lord.Inviting people into a relationship with Jesus Christ as the solution to these problems is a good thing.

These products are part of an effort to brand Islam, said Dr. Faegheh Shirazi, who spoke Wednesday as a guest of TCU’s Discovering Global Citizenship program and the departments of political science and religion. Shirazi said Muslims, especially in the West, establish connections to their worldwide religious community by using halal products. Halal means “permissible” in Arabic.Dr. Manochehr Dorraj, a professor of political science at TCU who suggested bringing Shirazi to campus, said the commodification of Islam involves multiple areas of study including business, religion and political science. Dorraj said the branding of Islam shows that faith can be used for profit. “That is why I have always said there is no innate thing called Islam,” Dorraj said. Shirazi, who teaches at the University of Texas at Austin, said certified halal products are associated with keywords like “organic” and “natural” to reach broader markets.Halal products are usually more expensive because every part of production must also be halal, Shirazi said.Shirazi said the idea of halal is similar to Judaism’s concept of kosher. Shirazi’s book, “Brand Islam: The Marketing and Commodification of Piety,” will be published in August 2016. Shirazi’s additional published works are “The Veil Unveiled: The Hijab in Modern Culture” and “Velvet Jihad: Muslim Women’s Quiet Resistance to Islamic Fundamentalism.” She also edited the anthology “Muslim Women in War and Crisis: Representation and Reality.” Ashley Sherman, a junior political science major, shares her biggest takeaway.  Linkedin Kaylee Bowershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kaylee-bowers/ Previous articleDowntown Design Review Board approves signage for HootersNext articleBiology professor kicks off Last Lecture Series Kaylee Bowers RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter TCU social work majors go into the field to help support Fort Worth’s homelesslast_img read more

The petition filed by Advocate G R Mohan is likely to be heard by the court on April 28. The plea states that during the lockdown period when Health Workers, doctors and others including police personnel who are trying to identify the persons affected with Coronavirus are attacked for no reasons and several of them have sustained injuries and several properties also destroyed by the anti social elements. One such incident had happened in Bengaluru, in Padarayanapura BBMP Ward. The Central Government has approved the amendment of the Epidemic Diseases Act 1897 thereby making the offence cognizable and non bailable with punishment of imprisonment upto 7 years for attack against Doctors and frontline personnel. However, The Karnataka Government which came out with the new law has diluted the very purpose of the Ordinance by making the offence Section 9 to be ‘Cognizable and Bailable’. By virtue of this the accused persons are entitled to be enlarged on bail for the serious offences being committed by them against the Doctors, Health Workers. The plea says that doctors, Health Officers of BBMP, ASHA workers are doing their jobs like warriors to detect the patients who are affected with the Corona Virus-COVID-19. The Ordinance as it is brought out by the State of Karnataka, does not instill confidence among the health workers. Even the punishment for obstruction of public servant is upto 3 years and with a fine upto Rs.50,000/- whereas the proposed Central Government Ordinance is imprisonment upto 7 years and fine is upto Rs.7 lakhs. Thus the Ordinance promulgated by the State of Karnataka in so far as it provides for bail and lesser sentence of imprisonment is liable to be struck down and that the Ordinance of the Central Government which is yet to receive assent of the President of India should alone been forced in the entire State of Karnataka. The ordinance has come into effect from April 22. Further it prohibits causing damage to public or private property. Whoever contravenes the provision shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than six months but which may extend to three years and with fine which may extend to fifty thousand rupees. In addition to the punishment specified the offender shall also be liable for a penalty of twice the value of public or private property damaged and loss caused to the public or private property as determined by the Deputy Commissioner after such enquiry as he deems fit. In case the offender has not paid the penal amount under sub section (1), the said amount shall be recovered under the provisions of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964 (Karnataka Act 12 of 1964) as if it were to be an arrears of land revenue. The plea prays for a direction to the state to prevail upon the Ordinance being promulgated by the Union of India by way of amendment to Epidemic Diseases Act 1897.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
