Lions 2017: New Zealand 21-24 British & Irish Lions

first_imgWarren Gatland felt his team could have kicked more given the conditions – they kicked out of hand 25 times to the All Blacks’ 34 – and that they could also have been more accurate when putting boot to ball.In the end, it was when the Lions kept the ball in hand that they reaped the most rewards, spreading it left and right and finding holes in a defence missing a man. That’s when they found the space to put Taulupe Faletau, whose work-rate throughout the game was outstanding, and Conor Murray over.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREStatistics13 – Penalties the Lions conceded to New Zealand’s eight. Beauden Barrett slotted seven of the ten kickable shots.122 – Tackles made by the Lions compared to New Zealand’s 65. Maro Itoje made 14 of those while the Lions’ back row combined to make 35. In contrast, Sam Whitelock was the All Blacks’ top tackler with seven.39% – Territory the Lions had during the game. They also trailed in terms of territory too (42%).50 – Metres made by Israel Dagg. He was also the top carrier with 13.6 – Clean breaks the Lions made to New Zealand’s one.New Zealand: Irsael Dagg; Waisake Naholo (Aaron Cruden 59), Anton Lienert-Brown, Sonny Bill Williams, Rieko Ioane; Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith (TJ Perenara 66); Joe Moody (Wyatt Crockett 52), Codie Taylor (Nathan Harris 79), Owen Franks (Charlie Faumuina 52), Brodie Retallick, Sam Whitelock (Scott Barrett 73), Jerome Kaino (Ngani Laumape 26), Sam Cane (Ardie Savea 64), Kieran Read (capt).Pens: Barrett 7.Red card: Sonny Bill Williams (25min)Lions: Liam Williams; Anthony Watson (Jack Nowell 25-31), Jonathan Davies, Owen Farrell, Elliot Daly; Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray; Mako Vunipola (O’Brien 66), Jamie George, Tadhg Furlong (Kyle Sinckler 62), Maro Itoje, Alun Wyn Jones (Courtney Lawes 59), Sam Warburton (capt), Sean O’Brien (Jack McGrath 64), Taulupe Faletau.Tries: Faletau, Murray. Con: Farrell. Pens: Farrell 4. The Rugby World verdict on the second Test between the Lions and New Zealand in Wellington The British & Irish Lions levelled the series by squeezing out a narrow win over New Zealand in Wellington. The two-time world champions were reduced to 14 men for 55 minutes after Sonny Bill Williams was red-carded for a dangerous tackle – but the tourists made hard work of capitalising on that advantage.The Lions outscored the All Blacks two tries to none, Taulupe Faletau and Conor Murray crossing in the second half, but they didn’t take the lead until the 77th minute when Owen Farrell slotted a crucial penalty.Prior to that Beauden Barrett’s boot had kept the All Blacks in front or level despite their numerical deficiency, the Lions again being made to pay for their penalty count. Yet Farrell gave the tourists the lead when it mattered and they managed to close out the game to take the series to the third and decisive Test at Eden Park next Saturday. Here’s a look at the good and the bad from the game…Close range: Conor Murray goes over for the Lions’ second try. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat’s hotPhysical contest – Warren Gatland had challenged his players to be more physical in this second Test having been outmuscled in the first match – and they certainly brought more intensity at close quarters. At times it overstepped the mark – the cards for Sonny Bill Williams and Mako Vunipola attest to that – but the counter-rucking from the Lions was impressive and denied New Zealand the quick ball they had feasted on in the opening match.Coupled with that physicality was the Lions defence, which was rock-solid never looked like conceding a try. Instead, the All Blacks had to rely on Beauden Barrett’s boot – how rare for the Kiwis to rely on penalties rather than touchdowns. In the final quarter it was the Lions who found holes to exploit but given their one-man advantage the coaches will surely be disappointed they weren’t able to secure a more comfortable victory.Jonathan Davies – Four years on from the controversy surrounding his selection ahead of Brian O’Driscoll for the third Test against Australia, the Welshman is proving exactly why Warren Gatland rates him so highly. Superb for the Lions in the first Test in Auckland, he was again to the fore in Wellington – deft hands despite the conditions, powerful carries and uncompromising defence.Lucky 13: Jonathan Davies was a rock in midfield for the Lions. Photo: Getty ImagesSea of red – Despite the miserable weather, which saw many in attendance bedecked in plastic ponchos to protect them from the rain, the atmosphere was spine-tingling. The noise was a huge step up from Eden Park and the Lions fans were in full voice, particularly the huge pack situated behind one set of posts. As Sam Warburton and his team ran out, they would have seen that swathe of red shirts – and it’s sure to have been an inspirational sight. The touring supporters also countered the Kiwi song Tutira Mai with chants of ‘Lions Lions’ to drown out the words ‘Tatou Tatou’. It was great to see the Lions players then applaud their merry band of supporters after the final whistle.Hardy fans: Lions supporters braved the wet and windy conditions in Wellington. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat’s notShoulder charges – As soon as footage of Sonny Bill Williams’s hit on Anthony Watson was shown on the big screen there were shouts of ‘Off, off’ from the crowd. And right they were. Hit is the best way to describe it for there was no attempt by Williams to wrap his arms in the tackle and his shoulder made direct contact with Watson’s head. Referee Jerome Garces was firm in bringing out the red card, saying: “I have to protect the player.”Seeing red: Sonny Bill Williams became the first All Black to be sent off in 50 years. Photo: Getty ImagesIt was extremely reckless and totally unnecessary from Williams, for Watson had already been stopped by one All Black’s legal tackle. Williams now has an unwanted record to go with his long list of achievements – only the third All Black to ever be sent off and the first since 1967.Mako Vunipola saw yellow, too, for a dangerous clearout on Beauden Barrett in the second half. Again, it was reckless and unnecessary. These sort of acts have no place in the game.Discipline – Infringements by the Lions cost them yet again, especially after the red card. It was almost as if they thought they could let their discipline slip having gained a man advantage, allowing Beauden Barrett to slot two more penalties in the ten minutes before half-time through their own indiscretions. Then within 13 minutes of the restart Maro Itoje (twice), Conor Murray and Mako Vunipola had all been penalised, although Barrett only found the target with two of those four kicks. A few minutes later, Vunipola was trudging off to the sin-bin.On target: Beauden Barrett kicked seven penalties for New Zealand. Photo: Getty ImagesThe Lions spoke in the build-up about the need to improve their discipline but they seemed to forget that actions speak louder than words, and unfortunately their actions led to more points and territory for New Zealand. If the Lions are to win this series by beating the All Blacks at Eden Park next week, then they must reduce their penalty count.Miss kicks – A lot of discussion in the lead-up to this game concerned the choice of two playmakers at ten and 12 for the Lions and the strength this would add to the Lions kicking game. It has to be said, though, that the Lions’ kicking did not reach the standards it has in previous games. Conor Murray’s box-kicks were not quite as pinpoint, a Johnny Sexton long kick rolled dead, relieving pressure on the All Blacks, and Elliot Daly hit another one too hard, New Zealand slotting a penalty from the resulting scrum.

Springboks too strong for the All Blacks in Bloemfontein

first_imgSaturday Jul 25, 2009 Springboks too strong for the All Blacks in Bloemfontein South Africa got their 2009 Tri Nations campaign off to a good start as they held of a second half New Zealand comeback to win the match 28-19 in Bloemfontein.The Springboks dominated the majority of the first half, and despite a few missed kicks at goal, went into halftime 14-3 up after two penalties from Francois Steyn, one from Ruan Pienaar, and a neatly taken try by the Bok number ten.Pienaar, who looked to have taken a heavy knock fairly early on, didnt return in the second half, and was replaced by Morne Steyn, the hero of the epic second test in the British & Irish Lions series recently.New Zealand came out looking like a different side in the second half, as they were far more organised and strung some phases together, culminating in an excellently taken try by centre Conrad Smith.Stephen Donald was on form with the boot, but so was Morne Steyn, who kicked three penalties of his own, further extending the Springbok lead.A late try from Jaque Fourie after pressure from Pierre Spies, took the stuffing out of the All Black comeback.A penalty by Donald with five minutes left gave them hope, but it was replacement flyhalf Steyn who sealed the win for the home side with a late penalty from the half way line, denying the visitors the losing bonus point they were looking for.The same two sides meet again next weekend, in Durban, for what should be another classic Test match between these old foes.

The vertical boundary outlined the partition between interior space and the outside one. Instead of the original idea about the façade – completely closed as a straight, solid wall – it was later developed into a semi-space limited by a solid-and-void “curtain” wall and inner room’s walls. These room walls work as the second layer of façade, together with greenery and stairs put in between the two, all those have created a transitional buffer zone.Save this picture!© Hoang LeSave this picture!© Hoang LeThis combination forms a double skin structure, minimizing adverse environmental impacts while ensuring effective ventilation, day-lighting, and especially preserving the interaction between the building and the frontward alley. Fired bricks, a local material with flexibly forming ability, are used for the “curtain” of the facade. Its transition of colour and porosity describes the privacy level and intention of the spaces arranged behind, graded according to height and function of use.

100th Livery Company backs charity IT project

first_img  68 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Worshipful Company of Information Technologists (WCIT), the 100th Livery Company in the City of London is backing a new project called Digital Pathways, run by homelessness charity, Thames Reach.It builds on the I-Reach project, a digital literacy project, also funded by WCIT and run by Thames Reach, which has so far helped 54 people access one-to-one support, and helped ten of those individuals to secure an IT qualification, as well as providing social media training and Wi-Fi access across seven Thames Reach properties.WCIT has committed £16,000 in funding towards the salary of a Digital Skills Support Worker who will act as an organisational lead to help Thames Reach service users develop specific IT pathways into education and employment. This has been complemented by further funding from Southwark Council of £22,500 towards the project.In addition to a further £1,800 of previously agreed funding for the second year of I-Reach, WCIT will also provide £5,000 towards the provision of interactive whiteboards to improve the delivery of IT accredited training at Thames Reach and £1,200 to support the roll-out of the IT Fundamentals training scheme at the charity, to be delivered by London-based Just IT Training and Recruitment Ltd.Jeremy Swain, CEO of Thames Reach said:“Our service users are increasingly ambitious to raise their levels of IT literacy in a bid to find work. Our latest survey revealed that nearly half (46%) said they needed more support around information technology to meet their needs and that 70% want to work but just 5% are in employment. We are struggling to meet this demand with our current staffing levels and skillsets. That’s where the input of WCIT has proved invaluable.”WCIT is open to approaches from any charitable organisation interested in its support for a relevant project. Applicants can contact the WCIT either through the organisation’s website, www.wcit.org.uk, or by emailing its charity coordinator, Eleanor MacGregor, at [email protected] All applications for grants are looked at on a quarterly basis: in March, June, September and December.

The Big Issue & iZettle roll out contactless payments nationwide

first_imgMike Hall, 29 (pictured), who sells the magazine inside Bristol Temple Meads station, Bristol, as part of The Big Issue’s partnership with Network Rail, said: Advertisement “Since I started using my iZettle card reader, I have seen my sales increase by a third, which is incredible. It has been really important in attracting more customers to buy copies of the magazine from me and I am so pleased to be part of being able to offer contactless.”Russell Blackman, MD of The Big Issue, commented: “Big Issue vendors are micro-entrepreneurs, effectively running their own small businesses. It has long been our intention to provide our vendors with the opportunity to cater for their customers’ needs and increase their ability to earn a legitimate income.” The Big Issue also recently partnered with Donr to accept digital wallet payments, and also earlier this year, made its issues resellable through the inclusion of QR codes.  The Big Issue & iZettle roll out contactless payments nationwide Melanie May | 10 September 2019 | News [youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://youtu.be/O4NrCVggu9I[/youtube] AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The UK-wide rollout follows on from a pilot in seven cities that took place between December 2018 – May 2019.Vendors taking part in the trials noticed a significant uplift in sales as a result of accepting contactless payments. Two vendors are making around 80% of their sales via cashless payments and on average 25% of the vendors total sales were cashless payments via iZettle readers.In London’s St Paul’s Underground station vendor Hugh Palmer says offering contactless payments has enabled him to “fit back in society”.The 73-year-old started selling The Big Issue after going bankrupt in 2011 and believes that offering contactless payments as part of the iZettle trial has given him renewed confidence. He said:“It’s promoting you and people think, ‘Ooh he’s got contactless, he must be OK. You fit back into society; before when it was cash only you would get days when people just didn’t buy the magazine from you.”  354 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Tagged with: contactlesslast_img read more

He had been held in custody since 30 June 2005 on the basis of a charge of attempted murder, laid by a former member of parliament, Nikolai Kotliarevski, who is himself accused of corruption.“We are alarmed by the Ukrainian justice system’s scandalous decision to sentence a journalist to eight years in prison, without any proper proof and simply on the basis of accusations made by a former deputy,” the press freedom organisation said.“This sentence raises doubts about the independence of justice officials in this region. We urge the Ukrainian government to urgently re-examine this case, the worst press freedom violation in the country since the election of President Viktor Yushchenko,” it added.The appeal court also ordered the journalist to pay damages to the complainant of 100,000 grivnas (about 15,600 euros).The journalist’s lawyer, Viktor Ovechkin, told Reporters Without Borders that he was planning to appeal the court decision within the two-week period allowed under law. He added that the court had refused to examine evidence presented by the defence or to hear defence witnesses. He said his client was the victim of hounding by the former local authorities, seeking revenge over corruption accusations reported by the journalist.Lilia Budjurova, a journalist and official with the Crimean Association of Free Journalists, said she was astonished that a Ukrainian journalist could be convicted without evidence while a former official accused of corruption was at liberty. Kotliarevski is facing charges in two criminal cases.Vladimir Lutiev wrote a number of articles critical of Nikolai Kotliarevski, a former member of parliament in the autonomous republic of Crimea, whom he suspected of electoral fraud and corruption. In October 2002, Lutiev was denounced by a former official in the department for the fight against organised crime and arrested on the basis of this claim. The case was discharged in 2003 following support from numerous press freedom organisations including Reporters Without Borders.

#Limerick families crippled by debt

first_imgPrint WITH more than 300 repossession cases listed before #Limerick circuit court so far this year, the frightening impact of financial stress on the mental well being of families has been revealed in a new survey conducted by the Irish Mortgage Holders Association.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The survey concludes that that there is a sharp increase in risks of depression, alcohol abuse and suicidal ideation among families dealing with crippling debt or those who are in fear of losing their home through repossession.At the start of 2016, upwards of 200 repossession cases were before the courts and with another 140 cases set to be listed at the next sitting of the Limerick’s Repossession Court, the IMHO survey revealed that five of its clients have taken their own lives in just four years.According to the non-profit group who offer independent debt resolution between lenders and distressed mortgage holders, there is a “hidden crisis” surrounding the level of mortgage arrears and the psychological impact it is having on ordinary families.With an estimated 150,000 homeowners in arrears, and upwards of 1,000 of those in Limerick city and county, the IMHO describes the situation as “widespread”.The report’s findings revealed evidence of how some families and individuals were dealing with a “ticking time bomb” in regard to their financial distress.500 men and women, with debt ranging from less than €250,000 (55 per cent) to more than €1million (8 per cent), participated in the study designed by Harvard University which questioned levels of nervousness, tiredness, hopelessness, restlessness and depression over a four week period.40 per cent of participants answered the majority of questions, if not all, with responses of “all of the time” or “most of the time”.More than 30 per cent indicated that they had had suicidal thoughts within the four week period and 22 per cent admitted that they had “active plans” with regards to those suicidal thoughts.Regarding alcohol and substance abuse, almost half of the respondents indicated harmful levels of alcohol use. with almost as many admitting that they felt guilty over the level of alcohol consumed.IMHO chief executive David Hall said the survey showed what those at the frontline of the debt crisis were seeing and the reality facing almost all of those who responded to the survey.Distressed mortgage holders range from those with buy-to-let and family home mortgages.“We’ve people from all walks of life but debt just paralyses everyone. No matter how dominant or strong or confident people are in their normal walks of life, debt cripples them,” Mr Hall said.“Debt renders them powerless and puts them under immense psychological pressure.”The IMHO say that the crisis is hindered by a lack of rapid access to help and relevant services to resolve the cause of stress, depression and suicidal feelings among those in financial difficulty and in tun a “one-stop shop” should be set up to provide access to all the relevant services including financial, legal and psychological supports.The results should act as a “wake-up call to a Government that has largely ignored this issue and made no attempt to provide proper resources to those affected,” said Mr Hall.Furthermore, the survey revealed that a very significant number of respondents specifically referred to their fear of being made homeless.“As we face into a government formation, all parties need to show leadership in ensuring that the reforms required to deal with legacy unsustainable debt are coupled with a comprehensive strategy to make sure that citizens are not unnecessarily, scarred for life by the experience,”According to latest figures from the Central Bank,12 per cent of mortgage holders are behind in their payments and nationally, 36,351 owner-occupier mortgages are in arrears of two or more years.
