True Glory – A Tribute to the Minnows

first_imgThursday Oct 4, 2007 True Glory – A Tribute to the Minnows With the group stages of the World Cup over and the Quarter Finals of the tournament starting this weekend, we take a look back at some of the stars of the first round. They came to the World Cup as nobodies. Not many of them play top flight rugby and the majority are amateurs. One thing is certain though, they left the greatest tournament in the world with their heads held high. These doctors, plumbers, shop owners and school teachers took to the field against men who literally get paid to play rugby, full time. Men who spend most days of the week in the gym and are on intensive fitness and skills training programs. And yet, this bunch of amateurs we’ve come to know as the ‘Minnows’ have fronted up and in some cases, struck real fear into the hearts of the top teams. We’ve all been thoroughly entertained and enamoured by these players that have given there all and sacrificed a great deal to represent their respective beloved countries. In the process they’ve made the world sit up and take notice of them. As in the past with previous traditional minnows Argentina, Tonga, Samoa, and Fiji, these sides will one day grow if given the opportunity. What some of us don’t realise is that these are not the bottom of the bottom in terms of world rugby. These teams qualified for the tournament, with some very competitive qualifying stages in each of their parts of the world. So they’ve earned their place. And now, the IRB want to cut the tournament down to 16 teams in 2011. I think I speak for all when I say we want to see these teams and these players in New Zealand in four years time. Please show your support by leaving a comment and maybe mentioning your favourite minnow moment of the tournament.

Argentina beat England to win the San Diego Sevens

first_imgFriday Feb 20, 2009 Argentina beat England to win the San Diego Sevens Argentina produced a fantastic win at the USA Sevens tournament in San Diego this past weekend. Beating England 19-14 in the final, they won only their second ever Sevens World Series title.Behind 14-5 at halftime, the Pumas came back strongly with tries from Martin Rodrigues and Lucas Amorosino, before their defence muscled up to hold England at bay for a full five minutes.Tom Biggs and Ben Gollings had both scored first-half tries for England, either side of one by Argentina captain Santiago Gomez Cora.Argentina’s Duncan Forrester said even he was surprised to win this tournament.Forrester said normally people expect South Africa, New Zealand and England to win these tournaments, but he thinks they were in good form after a good performance in Wellington.The win opens up the race for the 2008-09 World Series, as England and South Africa are now joint-top on 60 points, eight clear of New Zealand on 52. Argentina lie fourth with 48 ahead of Fiji, Kenya and the USA, who take 12 points from their home event.

Eddie Butler sums up Jonny Wilkinson career with rousing tribute

first_imgTuesday May 27, 2014 Eddie Butler sums up Jonny Wilkinson career with rousing tribute Jonny Wilkinson’s career comes to an end shortly, but in the past few years he’s managed to get the best out of a body that has suffered with injury throughout. Rugby writer and commentator Eddie Butler pays tribute to the great flyhalf, who is ending his career on a high with Toulon.All that remains is a Top 14 final, the ultimate prize for the French team that have put together something special down south. A Rugby World Cup, Heineken Cup and possibly a Top 14 title. Not a bad little career for a player that considers himself totally over-rated. ‘Adored from one end of the continent to the other, all around the rugby playing world.’video credit: theguardian and badboyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Player Features Related Articles 28 WEEKS AGO New Zealand rugby pod admit Owen Farrell… 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary… 30 WEEKS AGO The highs and lows of Yoann Huget after he… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Waratahs Will Skelton and Tolu Latu both suspended for double lifting tackle

first_imgMonday May 25, 2015 Waratahs Will Skelton and Tolu Latu both suspended for double lifting tackle Waratahs tight forwards Will Skelton and Tolu Latu have been suspended for two and four weeks respectively following a lifting tackle against the Crusaders on Saturday. In a repeat of last year’s Super Rugby final, the Waratahs won the match 32-22. Skelton was involved in a few incidents that had to be checked by the TMO, with the shoulder shot on Richie McCaw one that Crusaders fans wouldn’t have been too happy with.This challenge, combined with hooker Tolu Latu, has resulted in a two week ban for the giant, with Latu, who was yellow carded, picking up four weeks on the sidelines.“Two offending players, Skelton and Silatolu Latu, were involved in the incident,” said SANZAR’s Robert Stelzner SC, who precided over the disciplinary hearing.“Latu played a more active role in the lifting and twisting of their opponent, Sam Whitelock, contributing more significantly to the end result than Skelton. Skelton nevertheless also lifted and twisted Whitelock in the tackle, which is why he too was found to have breached the applicable Law.“Given the lesser extent of his involvement however, the sanction in the case of Skelton did not in my view warrant an increase from the entry level sanction to serve as a deterrent. “He was unaware of the actions of his fellow player, Silatolu Latu, and although he dropped his opponent after he had lifted and turned him, it appeared that Latu was the player who had continued with the tip tackle causing their opponent to land in the manner in which he ultimately did.”Law 10.4 (j) Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.The Waratahs plan to appeal the bans, while coach Michael Cheika was pleased with Skelton’s menacing influence around the park. He defended his tackling technique.“I’m not sure what he’s done wrong with his tackling technique, he’s just been tackling guys. The thing with Whitelock was a little bit unfortunate because he was just trying to get him down on the ground. Two guys like that can’t really know what the other is doing. “Will is taller than everyone, so he doesn’t really tackle in the traditional style, of getting down. He wraps arms around and he goes to the upper body to wrestle guys to the ground a bit more because he’s a big guy.”Francois Steyn was recently banned for a tip tackle that also involved another player, so while the incidents aren’t identical, it’s interesting that on this occasion both tacklers received bans.UPDATE: Both players have had their appeals rejected. Full detailsWILL SKELTON APPEAL DISMISSED View incident A SANZAR Appeals Committee, chaired by Lex Mpati (South Africa) and comprising Adam Casselden (Australia) and Chris Morris (New Zealand) has unanimously dismissed an appeal brought by the Waratahs against the decision of a judicial hearing that found Will Skelton had contravened Law 10.4 (j) – Lifting Tackle.The Committee dismissed the appeal on the basis that the appellant was unable to prove that the Judicial Officer’s initial finding was in error, or that the sanction imposed was manifestly excessive.As to the appeal against the finding of a contravention of Law 10.4 (j), the Committee was not moved by the submissions made on behalf of Skelton by counsel, Bruce Hodgkinson SC, that but for the participation of another player, Silatolu Latu, the tackled player would not have been taken through the horizontal such that his upper body came into contact with the ground first. As to the sanction imposed, it was argued, amongst others, that the Judicial Officer erred in holding that Skelton was reckless in the execution of the tackle. The Committee found no fault with the Judicial Officer’s finding and determined that the initial two-week sanction was appropriate. As such, the player remains suspended from all forms of the game for two weeks up to and including Saturday 6 June 2015.No order was made for costs.SILATOLU LATU APPEAL DISMISSED View incidentA SANZAR Appeals Committee, chaired by Lex Mpati (South Africa) and comprising Adam Casselden (Australia) and Chris Morris (New Zealand) has unanimously dismissed an appeal brought by the Waratahs against the sanction imposed from a judicial hearing that found Silatolu Latu had contravened Law 10.4 (j) – Lifting Tackle.The Committee dismissed the appeal on the basis that Latu was unable to persuade its opinion that the sanction was manifestly excessive. Latu’s ground of appeal was that the four-week sanction imposed was not fair in all the circumstances.The Committee was not persuaded by the submissions of counsel for Latu, Bruce Hodgkinson SC, who referred to other decisions for purposes of comparison. Counsel argued that the addition of two weeks to the low-end entry point of four weeks, applied by the Judicial Officer as a deterrent, was not consistent with the approach adopted in some of those decisions.The Committee determined that the initial four-week sanction was appropriate. As such, the player remains suspended from all forms of the game for four weeks up to and including Saturday 20 June 2015.No order was made for costs.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Springbok lock reveals reasons he was PUNCHED at the final whistle of 1995 Rugby World Cup win

first_imgWednesday Apr 15, 2020 Springbok lock reveals reasons he was PUNCHED at the final whistle of 1995 Rugby World Cup win Former Springbok lock Kobus Wiese has opened up about why he was punched by Ian Jones in the closing seconds of the famous 1995 Rugby World Cup final win. ADVERTISEMENTIt’s a moment that, all these years later, a lot of fans may not have actually even noticed.In the closing seconds, with South Africa leading 15-12 and about to win a historic RWC at their first attempt, New Zealand second rower Jones struck Wiese, just as the scrum went down and referee Ed Morrison blew the final whistle.Most people, even the most ardent of Springbok fans, won’t have noticed what happened. But it’s come to light this week, and Wiese has since open up to Jacques Henning about it, explaining the fascinating – albeit old school – circumstances.The now 55-year-old was reluctant to talk about it, but has revealed how it came about.“It’s part of the game.. You remember the [former Bok prop] Johan le Roux incident in New Zealand with Sean Fitzpatrick [in 1994], when unfortunately they didn’t feed Johan well enough so he nibbled on Sean’s ear? People saw it differently unfortunately and “Joe” was suspended for a couple of weeks.ADVERTISEMENT“He was one of the hard men of rugby, he could take it on the chin and also dish it out. He’s also a great guy and a really good person.“I promised Joe that if there was ever a chance for payback, one of us – his teammates – would oblige. And we’ll leave that there for technical and legal reasons!“In that last scrum, we paid back the dues for Joe and clearly Jonesy was a bit frustrated as well because he knew it was all over and he started punching. But I didn’t mind, I took it on the chin, because we had paid back the favour and it was all in good spirit.ADVERTISEMENT“We had a cold one – a lemonade – afterwards anyway and we’re friends to this day.”You can see and hear Wiese talk about it around 28 minutes into the video below.A short video of the incident:And it can be seen in the final seconds of this official highlights package too.

The building is composed of two wings that hold the two main directrix of the plot. That makes the L shape plan face south, towards the wide spaces that limit Ranillas Avenue, counting on views of the river and the north façade of the city core. The building contributes to finish an unfinished part of the city.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteRecommended ProductsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreThe building’s position in the plot established by the urban plan allows the creation of a wide open space, partially landscaped, that will make possible both a grateful use during the Expo and after it as a building of private flats. These open spaces adjust the relationship of the building with the adjoining streets.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe starting point has been to make a general shape nine floors high that emphasize the ensemble’s horizontality, according to the crossroad in which the building is constructed. Within this shape a work on the profile has been done making two cuts in the last four floors both in the vertex of the plan and in the east end. The central cut articulates the joining between the wings while the east end’s lower height allows for a graduating of the relationship with the street and the neighbour Health Centre.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe shaping of the building comes from the relationship between the overall layout and the constructive system that defines the encircling made up of walls clad with long grey metallic ceramics panels that define a background on which longitudinal cantilever slabs have been made, provided with sliding aluminium louvres panels that make up double façades, behind which glass rails have been placed.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteProject gallerySee allShow less’THE BLUE LINE’ Dnieper Pearls Competition Winning Proposal / Wolf House Productions…ArticlesSuZhou 133: BaiTang One Kindergarten Project / CPG AdvisoryArticlesProject locationAddress:Av de Ranillas, 50018 Saragossa, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.
