The Rugby Championship Review: Australia

first_imgAnd yet, the Wallabies overcame potential slip-ups against Argentina both at home and away thanks to Barnes’ accuracy in front of goal and the finishing of Digby Ioane. The Queensland Reds winger shone all too rarely in an Australian back line that has faded away since they lit up last year’s Tri-Nations tournament. Their outmuscling of the Springboks at home and the performance of the exciting Michael Hooper in Rosario were rare examples of forward dominance.When their stars return the Wallabies can be a force again, but the gap between themselves and the All Blacks has widened. The youthful 22 that took the field in Argentina will take plenty of heart from their win as they build towards 2015, but a successful tour of the Northern Hemisphere will be integral to the under-fire Robbie Deans keeping his job.Star Player: Nathan SharpeThe man who cannot retire. At least not until the Australia Rugby Union will let him. Being a veteran seems to suit Sharpe perfectly as he continues to inspire his teammates around him. With the Wallabies short of leadership following the loss of three captains in Horwill, Pocock and Genia, Sharpe has thrived and his performances have led to the ARU asking him to continue playing into the November Internationals.Rising Talent: Michael Hooper GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA – SEPTEMBER 15: Michael Hooper of the Australian Wallabies is tackled during the Rugby Championship match between the Australian Wallabies and Argentina at Skilled Park on September 15, 2012 on the Gold Coast, Australia. (Photo by Chris Hyde/Getty Images) Triumph in adversity: Nathan Sharpe has been irreplaceable during a tough championship for Robbie Deansby Ben ColesFinished: 2ndCONSIDERING THE enormous amount of opprobrium poured on Australia throughout The Rugby Championship, the fact that they finished the tournament in second place has been somewhat overlooked.When you factor in the fact that Australia were without James Horwill, Will Genia, James O’Connor, David Pocock, Quade Cooper, Drew Mitchell plus many more for either portions, or the duration of The Rugby Championship, and it’s a miracle they won a match at all given the youthful inexperience of their squad.Then to make a tricky situation worse, Quade Cooper declared to the media that the atmosphere in the Australian camp was “toxic” and that he would refuse to play for the Wallabies given the current tactical stifling of his attacking game and lack of national training centre. With Robbie Deans facing weekly calls from critics to leave his job, it has been far from the easiest of championships.This has mainly been down to the Wallabies aforementioned injury list and tactical approach. Persistent kicking from Berrick Barnes gained next to nothing as Australia threw away possession to the obvious discontent anger of their fans.The Wallabies inability to match the other three sides physically without Horwill and Pocock led to a chain effect of untidy ball at the breakdown, which left Barnes too often on the back foot. Nathan Sharpe at times was like a one-man army at the coal face.Out wide, denied of Will Genia’s clean service from the breakdown, Australia’s lack of depth at scrum-half was sorely exposed. Any side would struggle without their best players, but Australia have far weaker strength in depth than their rivals. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2012 has been Hooper’s year after a breakthrough season with the Brumbies and deputising for Pocock in the June Internationals against Wales. Much like Pocock, he is brilliant at the breakdown; physical and uncompromising, he has already been snapped up by the Waratahs for next season and is set to play a significant role this November.Follow Ben Coles on Twitter @bencoles_last_img read more

Badger’s Barbarians can make Australia a laughing stock

first_imgUnder-fire Australia face the Barbarians on Saturday and will have to cast aside off-field issues to avoid an ignominious start to their tour Now, Cheika is an uncompromising, passionate character – belligerent with self-belief but hugely charismatic and innovative. The sight of him embracing every one of his Waratahs at the final whistle of the Super 15 victory over the Crusaders summed him up. However, his task is an intimidating one.Uprooting any detrimental attitude issues should be helped by skipper Michael Hooper and figures such as Will Genia, who rejoins Cooper in a blockbuster backline including Henry Speight for Saturday. That said, cracks can widen very easily if results do not cooperate. And wins will not come easy in November.First up this weekend, the Barbarians are a prickly proposition, far from an end-of-season pushover. Coached by John Kirwan, there is a distinctive tinge of Kiwi toughness – a superb back row of Adam Thomson, Matt Todd and Steven Luatua defining such steel. Slade sits at 10 on the back of his heart-breaking conversion and 56-cap Scot Alastair Kellock captains. No veterans slurring through the motions here, just a lot of hard-edged motivation.Speaking of which, a certain Nick Cummins is on one wing. Inevitably, he has been in morale-boosting mode this week and is eager to barge into Australia’s World Cup plans. Cummins said his dream would require some “bending” from his Japanese employers, but an eye-catching afternoon would surely alert Cheika. Honey Badger certainly has happy history of running wild and grabbing ‘meat’ at Twickenham:Should Cummins help deliver a famous Barbarians victory, there will be much to ponder on the Wallabies’ coach journey to Wales. Warren Gatland’s men are on a 20-game losing streak that must end before a rendezvous in Pool A at 2015. After that, Australia hit up Paris and Dublin before another World Cup dress rehearsal against England.In short, Saturday is a cast-iron must-win for Cheika on many levels. In these parts, the pressure on home nations is palpable. How often do we talk about targeting autumn wins against the southern hemisphere big boys? This time though, Australia might just be feeling hot under the collar from the off.Teams for Saturday at Twickenham LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It was difficult not to feel sorry for Nick Phipps on Monday as the Wallaby scrum-half fielded questions on sexism and misogyny in sport. Understandably awkward and sheepish, he resembled a neat personification of Australian rugby as a whole – desperate for some on-field action that might momentarily alleviate attention from embarrassing commotion.Of course, it was not Phipps’s intention to act as an emissary for female rights on this trip. The schedule represents an excruciatingly tough boomerang starting and ending at Twickenham. Following Saturday’s curtain-raiser against the Barbarians, there are clashes with Wales, France, Ireland and England. Wholehearted focus is imperative from everyone.Instead, Phipps found himself cleaning up the debris of a debacle featuring Super 15 champion and Waratahs team-mate Kurtley Beale, who is majorly responsible for the latest calamity to engulf the Antipodeans. Despite not actually being on tour as yet, the mercurial maverick’s involvement in a text message scandal has cast a lingering shadow over the party.Indeed, the chain of events since Beale first blew up at Di Patson on a flight to Sao Paolo at the start of this month has resembled a grubby farce. Because everything occurred as part of the on-going circus-cum-soap opera that is Australian rugby though, it has been painfully believable.Head coach Ewen McKenzie, who spent his year in charge laying honest foundations for the road to 2015, has relinquished his job and seen his considerable integrity damaged. Prior to the final Bledisloe game at Suncorp Stadium against New Zealand three weeks ago, he decided enough was enough.Prodigal son: Beale could rejoin Cheika’s Wallabies if he “gets fit”As a mark of the man, McKenzie told nobody and soldiered on until after the game. It must have been utterly gut-wrenching when Colin Slade kicked that touchline conversion to seal a 29-28 defeat. A fine Wallabies performance brought grim consolation perhaps, but John Eales still described the sight of McKenzie announcing his resignation and leaving the venue – where he had enjoyed so much success with the Reds – as “one of the saddest sights I’ve seen in sport.”Almost as disheartening has been the reaction to Beale’s hearing last Friday, which found him not guilty of any wrong-doing further than one brain-dead text message. While the Australian Rugby Union’s decision to fine him $45,000 felt like a bizarre attempt to cover all bases, the punishment was probably just about fair. Beale had been effectively suspended for two Tests and demonstrated genuine contrition.Still, some misguided social media shouts ignored the severity of the initial blunder altogether – one prominent blog suggesting Beale’s ability made it “worth managing the chaos”. Well, is it? Trading two senior staff members for a player, albeit an extremely talented one, is an insane indictment on a team’s priorities.Frankly, there is only so much crap you can sweep under the carpet. And the ARU’s rug looks fairly lumpy right now. A cash-strapped union’s need for bums on seats is spinning a vicious circle whereby player power has muddled hierarchy.Rewind 18 months or so. When Robbie Deans jumped before he was pushed, his relationship with Quade Cooper was cited as a huge frustration. Cooper’s Queensland ally McKenzie was brought in. In the wake of his fall-out with another high-profile play-maker, he is gone too. Enter Michael Cheika, Beale’s former mentor with the Waratahs. The precedent is there, and made more striking by Nathan Grey hinting that Beale could join this tour “if he gets himself fit”. Would it have been preferable to appoint a total outsider?

Appeal to call-in for striking ICE detainees and prisoners

first_imgA hunger strike begun on July 17 by 60 ICE detainees at Bristol County Detention Facility in North Dartmouth, Mass., has been joined by approximately 250 more prisoners this week.Families for Freedom, contacted by the prisoners, stated that the strike was “sparked by a continued lack of medical attention and health complications arising from horrible food and filthy living conditions. One person told them: “Guys are getting sick because the shower has mold and the food is 3-4 days old and yellow, like yellow mashed potatoes. If you are sick, you have to wait 1-2 weeks before you get attention. There’s a guy in here who has gone three weeks with a broken hand and no medical care. People are getting seizures and no medical care, people are denied medicine for their conditions. People get food poisoning from the food and are told to just drink water.” Another said, “I’m in a wheelchair with a spinal injury and extremely high blood pressure. I can’t even walk and I’m denied all medical care.”Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson supports chain gangs and proposed using prison labor to build Trump’s border wall.FIRE (Fighting for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) says: Show solidarity with these striking prisoners in Bristol County!

Gardaí recover ammunition, cash, suspected drugs, and fireworks after questioning man…

first_imgFacebook Twitter Print A routine stop and check of a man who had parked in a disabled bay in Limerick city resulted in gardai recovering ammunition, cash, suspected drugs, and illegal fireworks.The cache, seized yesterday (June 16), included 100 rounds of ammunition, €4,000 cash, €600 worth of suspected cannabis herb as well as €250 worth of fireworks.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Gardaí said a man in his 20s was arrested in connection with the haul and later released without charge pending a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions.“Gardaí from Roxboro Road were on Operation Disruption patrol when then saw a car parking in a disabled bay on Cecil Street. Gardaí spoke to the driver, a man in his 20s, who handed over a container with €80 of suspected cannabis herb,” a garda spokesman explained.“The driver then fled on foot running down Catherine Street and was chased by Gardaí, who also seen him discard another package. He was arrested a short distance away and brought to Roxboro Road Garda Station.”“A search of the car was then carried out and Gardaí seized €300 cash and a mobile phone. The discharged package was also recovered and also contained €320 suspected cannabis herb.”During a “follow-up search later carried out at a house in Thomandgate, Gardaí seized almost 100 rifle cartridges, €250 fireworks, approximately €3,800 cash, and €200 of suspected cannabis herb”.“The man has since been released and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions. The suspected drugs and ammunition will all be sent for analysis,” added the spokesman.Gardaí said Operation Disruption was set up as a “proactive response in Limerick City targeting organised criminal activity”.“The primary focus of this operation is to impede the movements of criminals and their associates, thus reducing crime.

Fisherman’s catch of the day prompts evacuation of a Taco Bell in Ocala, Florida

first_imgOcala Police Department(OCALA, Fla.) — A fisherman prompted the evacuation of a Florida Taco Bell when he put his catch of the day in the trunk of his car and drove to the fast-food restaurant, police said.The angler, who was not identified, reeled in a rusted WWII hand grenade on Saturday while fishing with a magnet in Ocklawaha, according to police.Instead of immediately calling for the bomb squad when he pulled in the explosive with other rusted pieces of metal, he put the vintage device in the trunk of his vehicle and drove 17 miles north to a Taco Bell in Ocala, according to the Ocala Police Department The fisherman called 911 from the Taco Bell at about 5 p.m. Saturday, triggering an emergency response and the evacuation of the restaurant, police said.“This has been verified as an authentic WWII hand grenade,” the Ocala police posted on Twitter.A bomb squad responded, removed the grenade from the fisherman’s truck and carted it off to dispose of it.No one was injured during the incident, and the Taco Bell reopened about two hours after the grenade was reported, police said.

Evidence of sub-MeV EMIC-driven electron precipitation

first_imgElectromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves are potentially important drivers of the loss of energetic electrons from the radiation belts. Numerous theoretical calculations exist with conflicting predictions of one of the key parameters: the minimum resonance energy of electrons precipitated into the atmosphere by EMIC waves. In this study we initially analyze an EMIC electron precipitation event using data from two different spacecraft instruments to investigate the energies involved. Combining observations from these satellites, we find that the electron precipitation has a peak flux at ∼250 keV. Extending the analysis technique to a previously published database of similar scattering events, we find that the peak electron precipitation flux occurs predominantly around 300 keV, with only ∼11% of events peaking in the 1–4 MeV range. Such a significant population of low-energy EMIC-driven electron precipitation events highlights the possibility for EMIC waves to be significant drivers of radiation belt electron losses.last_img read more
