LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Stuart Hogg scores scorching try in Rome sunshine Expand Hamish Watson enhances his Lions chancesBack-row selection for the 2021 Lions tour to South Africa will be incredibly competitive. Challenging for starting spots on the flank will be Tom Curry, Sam Underhill, Josh Navidi, Justin Tipuric, Aaron Wainwright, hopefully Dan Leavy… the list goes on.But Hamish Watson must enter the conversation after an incredible Man of the Match performance against Italy in the Six Nations. He has had an outstanding tournament so far – Scotland’s star man in their losses in the first two rounds – and his performances have only improved alongside partner-in-crime Jamie Ritchie.Yes, Italy’s forwards were poor, but some credit has to go to Watson’s mongoose-like performance. He was the top Scottish tackler with 19 and carried for 62 metres, more than any other forward on the pitch except for Jake Polledri. He also won two turnovers on the ground. And he wears his tartan collar like vintage Eric Cantona.The last Scottish back-rower to appear in a Lions Test was Rob Wainwright back in 1997; Watson has an excellent chance of being the next 24 years later.Italy’s traditional strengths and weaknesses have been flipped Italy had most of their Six Nations success between 2007 and 2013, a period in which they reached their highest-ever world ranking of eighth.Their success was built on an excellent generation of forwards who often achieved set-piece dominance and generally ensured quick ball. Seven of their starting pack were usually unchanged – Andrea Lo Cicero, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Martin Castrogiovanni, Marco Bortolami, Alessandro Zanni, Mauro Bergamasco and Sergio Parisse would each win a century of caps.Conversely their back-line often struggled. After the retirements of Diego Dominguez in 2003 and Alessandro Troncon in 2007 they had no consistent half-back partnership, whilst their only world-class back was the protean Mirco Bergamasco (with an honourable mention for Andrea Masi).Fast-forward to 2020 and their game against Scotland, and the landscape couldn’t look more different. The Italian back-line looks sharp. Tommaso Allan is playing the best rugby of his life, whilst half-back partner Callum Braley looks experienced beyond his years. I wrote two weeks ago about how Carlo Canna’s introduction as a secondary distributor for Italy has sparked the Azzuri back-line – and this was on full display in Rome on Saturday.Italy made more metres than Scotland, despite two Scottish breakaway tries, and wings Matteo Minozzi and Mattia Bellini sparkled, particularly in the first half. However, Italy did not score a point, as they fell to a 17-0 defeat.Why? Crucially, they turned the ball over 22 times, time after time being unable to recycle good phase play from the back-line. Italy were also monstered in the scrum, with prop Giosue Zilocchi, who had an impressive first two rounds, hauled off after 30 minutes.The game showed how much Italy’s traditional strengths and weaknesses have changed over the course of the decade. Only Zanni remains from the golden generation of forwards, and whilst Braam Steyn is excellent and Jake Polledri could be talismanic, the forwards lack the depth of Italian teams of yesteryear.This back-line can be dynamic – they just need the ball and the base to perform.Second divisions are crucial to national teams – just look at France This France team look to be the real deal, winning away in Wales for the first time in ten years, against the most experienced XV to ever take the field in the Six Nations. Two tough games await them – away at Murrayfield and at home to Ireland, but they have a brilliant chance to once again begin the decade with a Grand Slam.However, in a period where Championship clubs have had their funding cut by the RFU, France have shown the RFU the flaws in their argument.Just look at their key men this tournament. Gregory Alldritt, who was Man of the Match in their first two games, came through the youth system of FC Auch, who played in the ProD2 and Fédérale 1. Note the past tense – a lack of investment in the lower divisions forced Auch to wind up their professional set-up in 2017. It’s a stark lesson to the RFU on the quality of players they could miss out on.French star: Gregory Alldritt gets a pass away against Wales (Getty Images)Cameron Woki, another highly-rated back-rower, came through at Pro D2 side RC Massy, whilst Demba Bamba, who won a controversial but crucial scrum penalty in the win against Wales, was playing in the second division for Brive when he made his professional debut last year. Stuart Hogg scores scorching try in Rome sunshine Collapse Against Italy, with Vakatawa injured, he was asked to step into the 12 shirt and performed a brilliant job as a second receiver, showing a deft kicking game hitherto unseen at international level.Then with Damian Penaud and Vincent Rattez injured, he moved out to the wing, putting in a performance which merited a try (he had one disallowed), keeping George North and then the dangerous Johnny McNicholl quiet.French players have starred in this tournament. But its time to show some love to a man who has been asked to play a radically different game in each round – and delivered.Rumours of England’s demise have been greatly exaggeratedEngland looked back to their best in their 24-12 win over Ireland, winning games with the emphatic physicality last seen in their semi-final victory over New Zealand.To their credit Ireland stood up manfully, but the ball rarely progressed into their back-line, with remorseless midfield pressure put upon Johnny Sexton by Sam Underhill, Maro Itoje and Courtney Lawes.England needed a performance like this after being outmuscled by France and held close by Scotland in atrocious conditions, and still have a decent chance of winning the title if France slip up in their next two games – although they could regret not seizing the bonus point.And what about Eddie Jones’s team selection? Joe Marler was excellent in the scrum against Tadhg Furlong, Lawes won Man of the Match despite getting deployed on the flank, and Jonathan Joseph outstepped Jordan Larmour, although Ireland surprisingly did not test him in the air.With Wales up next at Twickenham, who have lost their last two, England will be feeling confident. Full-back Anthony Bouthier, unlucky not to win MOTM in Cardiff, is perhaps the starkest example – this is his first season playing in the Top 14, having played for Vannes, a ProD2 club, for over half a decade.Teams such as Nottingham have warned that they may not be able to survive budget cuts, whilst the likes of Jersey Reds and Ealing Trailfinders are clubs on the rise. France have shown the importance of these second-tier clubs.Gael Fickou has been a quiet standoutA while ago and Gael Fickou was an enigma. Capable of brilliant moments – like the winning try against England at the age of only 19 – but also often kept quiet, struggling with the lack of a consistent centre partner since Wesley Fofana’s injury troubles.However, with Romain Ntamack and Virimi Vakatawa now established in this France team, Fickou’s form has been excellent, despite often being overshadowed by the contributions of Ntamack, Antoine Dupont and Bernard Le Roux.The last three games have really shown Fickou’s flexibility, as he has been asked to play three different roles by Fabien Galthié. In the win over England he led France’s defensive press from 13, a key role in Shaun Edwards’s system, which Jonathan Davies has done so well for the past decade for Wales.MORE FROM THE SIX NATIONS The French beat Wales 27-23 in dramatic game… Johnny Sexton fumble leads to George Ford try Johnny Sexton fumble leads to George Ford try On the ball: Scotland flanker Hamish Watson tests Italy’s defence (Getty Images) Expand Irish errors play part in England’s 24-12 win… France keep Grand Slam bid on track with win in Cardiff France keep Grand Slam bid on track with win in Cardiff Stuart Hogg scores scorching try in Rome sunshine… From the excellence of Gael Fickou and Hamish Watson to the Italy’s role reversal, Jacob Whitehead reflects on the weekend’s happenings The March 2020 issue of Rugby World magazine – a Six Nations special – is on sale now.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Wales v England dominated by controversial try decisionsWales took the lead in their Six Nations match against England in Cardiff with two controversial tries.They eventually won the fixture 40-24 to lift the Triple Crown but it was two first-half decisions that caused the most debate.Related: Rugby World verdict on the Triple Crown winThe first came in the 17th minute. The scores were level at 3-3 after Dan Biggar and Owen Farrell had exchanged early penalties when Wales were awarded another penalty inside the England 22.Farrell had conceded that penalty and asked referee Pascal Gauzere for time to talk to his players, who he gathered in a huddle under the posts.Gauzere blew for time off and as soon as he restarted play, Biggar kicked cross field and Josh Adams gathered the ball to score. Even the players looked surprised that the try stood but Biggar converted to give Wales a 17-6 lead.Matt Dawson described the decision as “shocking” on BBC Radio 5Live and it caused controversy on Twitter too. Plenty of debate over Wales’ two first-half touchdowns LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Then after half an hour, Wales were awarded another try – again in controversial circumstances.Adams kicked through into the England 22, Louis Rees-Zammit couldn’t gather the ball but as it went loose Liam Williams collected it and went over.Most people thought that it was a knock-on from Rees-Zammit but TMO Alex Ruiz ruled that he couldn’t see him “knock the ball forward. It touched his leg and then the ball went backwards”. Biggar’s conversion made it 10-3 – but England were not happy. They had still been talking under the posts and the water carriers were on the pitch when Biggar kicked crossfield and were not able to react in time to stop Adams out wide.Farrell approached Gauzere as soon as Adams had touched down to appeal the decision to award the try, but the referee said: “I allowed you time to give the message and after that it was play on.”Farrell closed the gap with another penalty shortly afterwards to make it 10-6 after 20 minutes, but the try decision has caused debate on social media. TAGS: Highlight Josh Adams scores Wales’ opening try (Getty Images) An Anthony Watson try in the 35th minute as England attacked in the 22 brought them back into the game and Farrell further narrowed the gap with a penalty in front of the posts in added time.That made it 17-14 at half-time and an intriguing second period awaited.Midway through the second half it was 24-24 after tries from scrum-halves Kieran Hardy and Ben Youngs, but Wales pulled clear to win 40-24 as England conceded a succession of penalties and Cory Hill scored the bonus-point try. Gauzere is right. You don’t get the opportunity to line up all your men first. This isn’t a battle in the 7th century.— Sam Larner (@SamLStandsUp) February 27, 2021 Can’t get to the shops?

They received only slight injuries in the shooting in Estancia, Panay island, central Philippines, contrary to what was announced initially. Arnie Pullan had been attacked previously on 7 June 2005 and the trial of his alleged assailants is continuing.———————————-04.12.2006Murder attempt against a radio presenterIn less than a week a radio presenter has been badly wounded in a murder attempt on Panay island, central Philippines and a peasant leader, who was a producer of a community radio, has been murdered on Luzon island in the north of the country.”Once again, journalists who put themselves at the service of a politician or a cause, like that of the peasant farmers have fallen victim to contract killers who operate with impunity”, said Reporters Without Borders.“We urge the local and national authorities to probe these violent attacks against radio presenters. The Philippines police must continue their efforts to get these killers convicted, as happened recently in the case of Marlene Esperat”, the organisation said.Arnie Pullan, presenter on local radio MBC-Radyo Natin and municipal councillor Butch Aclaro were seriously injured when they were shot at by two people riding a motorbike in Estancia, Panay island, central Philippines on 1st December. Pullan was taken to hospital in a critical condition with head injuries.He presented the programme “The Mayor’s hour”, in support of the city mayor, Rene Codero, who immediately accused his political opponents of having instigated the murder attempt. In the Philippines, local radios sell time slots to private individuals known as “block timers” who can then broadcast their own commercial or political programmes. Peasant leader Antony Licyayo, 38, was murdered by an unknown assailant as he was leaving for work on 27 November with his 18-month old son in his arms. His organisation supported the community radio Radyo Cagayano in Baggao, Luzon island. The global community radio body AMARC said the radio exposed the harsh life of the peasant and military corruption. It previously came under attack on 2 July when masked and armed men torched the broadcast studios.

Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News Reporters Without Borders deplores yesterday’s decision by the Hague-based International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia to find former journalist Florence Hartmann guilty of contempt for revealing an agreement which the tribunal secretly reached with the Serbian government in connection with the trial of former President Slobodan Milosevic.The court imposed a fine of 7,000 euros on Hartmann, a French national and onetime spokeswoman of prosecutor Carla del Ponte, after ruling that she “knowingly and wilfully interfered with the administration of justice.”“The only honourable outcome to these sad proceedings would have been Florence Hartmann’s acquittal,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Unfortunately, this did not happen and we regret it deeply. This conviction undermines the credibility of international criminal justice. How can you trust a court that chooses to conceal documents that would help to render justice and then suppresses information about its own functioning?”The tribunal brought the case against Hartmann for reporting in her 2007 book Peace and Punishment that some of the tribunal’s members obtained Serbian government documents for use in the case against Milosevic in exchange for an agreement not to disclose other information that could have implicated in Serbia in war crimes.“Regardless of the size of the fine imposed on Hartmann, it is the mere fact of her conviction that is a disgrace,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It means the public is being denied a legitimate interest in an entire section of the tribunal’s activities. International justice would be strengthened by an open debate about the compromises that are acceptable in order to prepare genocide and war crimes prosecutions.”The press freedom organisation added: “Aside from Hartmann’s case itself, this decision sets a dangerous precedent for all journalists covering the tribunal’s activities and could lead to self-censorship that would jeopardise our knowledge and understanding of its workings.”Hartmann’s lawyer, Guénaël Mettraux, told Reporters Without Borders he was very disappointed. “By adopting a very strict definition of contempt, this ruling imposes narrow limits on journalists’ work, limits that are not just formal but also criminal,” he said. “It remains to be seen if it will be treated as representative of the current state of international law on this point. Either way, it sends a very bad signal to less democratic regimes.”Reporters Without Borders reiterates its support for Hartmann and hopes her innocence will be fully recognised on appeal.(Photo AFP) Organisation September 15, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 By convicting former journalist, international court tries to muzzle coverage of its activities NetherlandsEurope – Central Asia NetherlandsEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Follow the news on Netherlands December 2, 2020 Find out more Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union to go further News November 23, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information News RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive

WhatsApp Previous articleMeet Michael Roberts – estate agent for LimerickNext articleChampions lie in wait for Munster Editor Twitter Linkedin Facebook TAGSLimerick Docklands Framework StrategyShannon Foynes Port Company Ports at Limerick and Foynes have seen record growths over the past year, exceeding the national average and the company’s own expectations.With a growth of 11.4% in year on year tonnages, Shannon Foynes Port Company reaffirmed its strong performance and contribution to the regional economy in 2016.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up For the second successive year, the two largest directly managed SFPC ports have now delivered 10% plus growth, significantly ahead of national and international standards.Overall tonnages delivered across the company’s activities last year were at just over 11 million, marginally behind the company’s record tonnage levels and reflecting the very significant resurgence at the company over the past five years. The tonnage increases were largely driven by strong performing sectors such as construction, oil distribution, agri and renewables.The growth levels are also in excess of the upper end scenarios envisaged in the company’s Vision 2041 Masterplan published in 2014 and validate, SFPC CEO Patrick Keating states, the ongoing programme of infrastructural investment in quay infrastructure and land capacity.Furthermore, he states, they reinforce again the growing need for the upgrade of Limerick to Foynes road network, without which the company’s ability to maintain growth and help drive the regional economy.Reflecting specifically on the 2016 tonnage breakdown, Mr Keating said that while growth at the two premier ports was very positive, tonnages at Limerick really stood out.“The tonnages at Limerick Docks are particularly impressive as our tonnages last year were unprecedented and illustrate again the value and importance of Limerick Docks as a viable port not just for SFPC but for the region. Exports from Limerick docks more than tripled imports in 2016 so that shows just how much an asset it is for business in Limerick and the wider region.“We have a long term plan for our property in the Limerick Docklands area but this will primarily be centred on maximising the docks as working port and improving connectivity thereto.“We have just completed a Limerick Docklands Framework Strategy that maps out the future requirements for the working port at Limerick, as well as plans to reinstate historical buildings such as Bannatyne Mills over time. This Strategy will be launched shortly and we are confident it will have a very positive economic and visual impact on the Dock Road area based on our stakeholder consultations.”In keeping with its previously announced capital expenditure plans, 2016 also saw the company complete Phase 1 (€12m) of its expansion programme in Foynes.It also recently acquired a further 90 acres for storage and port development purposes to facilitate growth in Foynes and will lodge a planning application for further multiple phases of its current €50m capital investment programme shortly.

Governor on the issue in 2012, and the acceptance on an affidavit filed by the GNCTD before the High Court in 2013, no concrete action has been taken till date to relieve the public prosecutors of the burden of this unpaid for, additional task.Infact, the Association alleges that instead of taking steps towards the concretization of its own earlier , the government has on the contrary, backtracked to discussing about the remuneration to be paid to the public prosecutors instead of deliberating upon the setting-up of the legal cell of Delhi Police meant to carry out the task.Next Story
