It does not include Mike Phillips, but does include Dan Biggar, who requires two points to become only the second Ospreys player to reach 500 in the Magners League.Head Coach, Sean Holley, commented: “It’s gone down to the wire and we are left in a position where we have to go out and give everything on Friday night and hopefully, get our reward. It’s important that we concentrate on ourselves, that the boys know their roles and responsibilities, that they carry them out to the best of their abilities and we don’t allow ourselves to get distracted by what may be happening elsewhere.“It’s not going to be an easy 80 minutes, they are a very tough nut to crack. Look at their results at home this season and you’ve seen that they’ve given some very good teams a close call. Add into the mix that Rowland will, I’m sure, want to take our scalp, and you’ll see that we have to be professional and do a job.“I expect to see champion spirit, and a champion’s performance from us. Nothing less than that will be good enough.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS CARDIFF, WALES – DECEMBER 31: Ospreys player Dan Biggar makes a point during the Magners League match between Cardiff Blues and Ospreys at Cardiff City Stadium on December 31, 2010 in Cardiff, Wales.

Toulouse edge Biarritz to maintain unbeaten home record

first_imgTuesday Jan 29, 2013 Toulouse edge Biarritz to maintain unbeaten home record Toulouse sit in second place on the Top 14 table following their entertaining 19-14 victory over Biarritz at the Stade Ernest Wallon on Friday night. It came at a cost though as France winger Vincent Clerc hobbled off with a thigh injury.  This was probably the game of the weekend in France so we’ve got highlights featured here, but have also archived some of the other big games, where you can see the best moments from Bayonne vs Castres, Bordeaux vs Racing Metro, and Perpignan vs Clermont.Biarritz came close to challenging Toulouse’s unbeaten home record, in the process becoming the first side to pick up a losing bonus point there this season. If it weren’t for a knock-on by Welsh wing Aled Brew as he crossed the tryline, things may have been different.As it was Toulouse held on for the win but as you’ll see, they lost Vincent Clerc to injury, which could have larger ramifications as France start their Six Nations campaign this coming weekend.Clerc pulled a muscle in the second half, and despite his best effort to clear the ball, Biarritz almost took advantage as Harinordoquy threw a NFL type pass infield, only to have the try disallowed. France kick off their tournament with a match against Italy in Rome this Sunday, 3 February. You can also view the Top Ten Best Tries for the last two rounds ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Top 14 Related Articles 44 WEEKS AGO Match called off after another French club… 92 WEEKS AGO Brilliant hands sets up first La Rochelle… 93 WEEKS AGO Loann Goujon sent off for frustrated stamp… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgFriday Aug 21, 2015 Wallabies 31-man squad, plus a few extras, for the World Cup and USA tour Wallabies Head Coach Michael Cheika has announced his 31-man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Comprising 17 forwards and 14 backs, and with over 1,200 Test caps between them, the squad will be captained by Stephen Moore in his third consecutive RWC. 2003 Rugby World Cup finalist Matt Giteau and Wallabies Vice-Captain Adam Ashley-Cooper will join Moore in their third Rugby World Cup campaign. Sharing the Vice-Captaincy role alongside Ashley-Cooper will be Michael Hooper. The 24 year-old flanker will be one of thirteen Rugby World Cup debutants for the Wallabies, including dual international Israel Folau. Toby Smith and Sean McMahon are the only players named in the squad who have not featured during the 2015 international season, with Cheika opting for a more balanced and versatile backrow and props group. The Wallabies will commence their preparations with a series of camps in Sydney, Indiana and Bath.An additional 10 players have been named to join the squad until the time the 31-man Rugby World Cup squad departs for England on September 13. The first camp will be held this weekend in Sydney, which will include a public farewell event to provide fans with an opportunity to see the team off in person at Martin Place on Thursday August 27, before the squad steps out for the 14th Annual John Eales Medal Gala Dinner later that evening. The squad will then depart for the United States to set up camp at the historic University of Notre Dame in Indiana. From there the Wallabies will cross the state border to Chicago to play their final match ahead of the Rugby World Cup against USA at Soldier Field, home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears.The historic clash will be Australia’s first Test against the Eagles in over 40 years. “We’ve selected a wider training squad including an extra 10 players who will train alongside the squad prior to our departure from the USA to England,” said Cheika. “Like they’ve done all year, these players will play a huge role in the team’s preparation.” The Wallabies will play their opening match of Pool A against Fiji at Millennium Stadium, Cardiff on September 23, followed by Uruguay at Villa Park, Birmingham on September 27. The Wallabies will then take on England and Wales at Twickenham in London on October 3 and October 10, respectively.

Despite pardon, Jennifer Latheef should be cleared of terrorism charges

first_img July 15, 2020 Find out more The members of the International Mission for Press Freedom in the Maldives today termed presidential pardon for photojournalist and opposition member Jennifer Latheef as a step towards reinforcing confidence in the reform process, but said it was a “half-measure” all the same.”This pardon is a step in the right direction but we think it is important that Jennifer Latheef should be cleared of the charges of terrorism,” said the five organisations that make up the mission. “This is necessary so that the case can finally be closed. We also call for a fair and transparent review of the cases against Mohamed ‘Ani’ Nasheed and Abdulla Saeed.”The director of the Department of Penitentiary and Rehabilitation Service (DPRS) went to Latheef’s home in Male on August 16th morning to notify her that she had received a pardon from President Abdul Gayoom.Latheef, who had been under house arrest since 21 December 2005 serving a 10-year prison sentence for terrorism, told the mission she refused to sign the pardon because she is innocent. “I am not a terrorist,” she said. “The authorities must clear me and the others who are accused. If I was the mastermind of this terrorist group, why I am free and not them?”She added that she wondered if the authorities would now impose the six-month prison sentence that is the punishment for disobeying an official order in the Maldives.The government spokesman yesterday said Latheef was released under “an accord reached in the course of informal talks” between government ministers and leaders of the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP). He told Minivan News that her objections were just “public relations rhetoric.”Latheef received the 10-year prison sentence on 18 October 2005 for allegedly throwing stones at policemen during a street demonstration in Male on 20 September 2003 that was prompted by the death of a detainee under torture. The stone-throwing was deemed to have been an “act of terrorism.” Five other young protesters were also given long jail terms.Latheef denied throwing any stones and said she was there to gather information about the victims of repression. But the court accepted the prosecution’s claims, which were supported by contradictory statements from police officers.Aged 33, Latheef is the daughter of one of the country’s most prominent opposition leader, who lives in exile in Sri Lanka.South Asia Press CommissionArticle 19International Media SupportInternational Federation of JournalistsReporters Without Borders April 23, 2018 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Maldives Help by sharing this information MaldivesAsia – Pacific RSF_en September 12, 2018 Find out more Receive email alerts Maldivian president’s comms chief accused of sexually harassing journalistcenter_img RSF seeks press freedom pledges from Maldives presidential candidates News to go further News August 19, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Despite pardon, Jennifer Latheef should be cleared of terrorism charges MaldivesAsia – Pacific News News RSF calls for open trial of Maldivian blogger’s accused murdererslast_img read more

Chicago Cubs ban fan who made seemingly offensive hand gesture on TV broadcast

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailsmontgom65/iStock(CHICAGO) — The Chicago Cubs have indefinitely banned a man from Wrigley Field after the individual was caught on camera this week appearing to make an offensive hand gesture, the team announced.The incident took place during the NBC Sports Chicago broadcast of the Cubs’ May 7 game against the Miami Marlins. A man in a Cubs sweatshirt sitting behind the booth where NBC Sports Chicago analyst Doug Glanville was speaking on camera was observed making an upside-down OK gesture with his hand, which is construed by many as a white supremacist symbol. Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney said in a statement Wednesday that the team reviewed the broadcast and “concluded this individual’s actions violated the Guest Code of Conduct.” Kenney said the team was unable to reach the unnamed individual by phone but sent him a letter stating that he would “not be permitted on the grounds of Wrigley Field or other ticketed areas indefinitely.”He added that the man could be prosecuted for criminal trespass if he attempts to re-enter Wrigley Field.Theo Epstein, the Cubs’ president of baseball operations, called the fan’s actions “truly disgusting” and said it “gave [him] shivers to watch” the incident.“I think, appropriately, we’ve made clear how egregious and unacceptable that behavior is, and there’s no place for it in our society, in baseball, and certainly no place at Wrigley Field,” Epstein said.Kevin Cross, senior vice president and general manager for NBC Sports Chicago, said in a statement Wednesday that the fan’s behavior was “reprehensible” and said that it did not “represent the great Cubs fans of our city and those around the country.”Glanville, a former Major League Baseball outfielder who played two stints for the Cubs, said he found out about the gesture after the end of his segment.“I applaud the responsiveness of both the Chicago Cubs organization and NBC Sports in investigating this matter,” Glanville said in a statement. “They have reached out to me and are supportive of my role in the broadcast and continue to have a desire to uphold an inclusive environment at Wrigley Field. They have displayed sensitivity as to how the implications of this would affect me as a person of color.”The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said that while the hand gesture is usually associated with the word “okay,” members of the website 4chan created a hoax in 2017 that claimed the gesture represented the letters W and P for “white power,” hoping that “the media and liberals would overreact by condemning a common image as white supremacist.”For a time, the symbol was a “popular trolling tactic”, but the ADL says that by 2019 it had also become “a sincere expression of white supremacy.” The Southern Poverty Law Center also noted that “a number of alt-right figures” had been photographed using the symbol before the 4chan hoax.ADL officials said that the gesture can still be used to mean “okay” and for other contexts, including for the “circle game,” where participants attempt to trick others into looking at a similar gesture below one’s waist, and as a symbol for the Three Percenter movement, a pro gun rights militia group.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
