2019 Rugby World Cup: Scotland 34-0 Samoa

first_img First up: Sean Maitland crosses for Scotland’s opening try (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Scots get their World Cup campaign back on track with a bonus-point win over Samoa Showboat! Stuart Hogg finesses a drop-goal over the posts from the just shy of the halfway line. Colossal kick#RWC2019 #ITVRugby pic.twitter.com/zagNZw7WLG— ITV Rugby (@ITVRugby) September 30, 2019The Scots pushed for a third try from a series of lineouts in the Samoa 22 once the gong for half-time had sounded but couldn’t get across the line.The second half started much like the first, both sides struggling to keep possession and build phases through their own errors.Samoa had a decent period in the Scotland 22 but another knock-on allowed the Scots to clear their lines.Scotland then had a spell in the Samoa 22, first putting on pressure through scrums and then five-metre lineouts. They eventually got their third try in the 57th minute when they were awarded a penalty try. TAGS: Samoa Drama!When the bonus-point win looked all but lost, a crazy double-knee challenge gives Scotland a crucial penalty try late on#RWC2019 #ITVRugby pic.twitter.com/HVZZVAtRwP— ITV Rugby (@ITVRugby) September 30, 2019Samoa tried in vain to get a try in the closing stage but they came up short and become the first team to be nilled at this World Cup.Star manIt’s hard to pick out a standout in a match so devoid of quality. Tim Nanai-Williams and Sean Maitland showed flashes with ball in hand for Samoa and Scotland respectively, but Jonny Gray got the official nod and as the only tight-five forward to play all 80 minutes for the victors it seems only right. He got through a ton of work and that is even more impressive in this heat.The ReactionScotland coach Gregor Townsend: “We defended with real passion, putting big hits on very big men time and time again. That knocked the confidence of the Samoan carriers. They’re a very dangerous team and they still caused us problems right at the end, so the effort at that last lineout maul and few phases in defence was outstanding.“Going into the game a win and a better performance was what we were targetting. Anything extra would be an exceptional performance and that is what it was, especially in the first half.”Samoa coach Steve Jackson: “You’re trying to stop two tries, it’s risk and reward, but we’re not intentionally going out there to get yellow cards and by no means do we coach or train that.“Credit to Scotland, they were hungry, the set-piece went well, defensively they were outstanding and showed a different side in attack tonight. We had opportunities to score tries but there was poor execution. That was probably down to the fact they defended extremely well.”Scotland: Stuart Hogg; Darcy Graham, Chris Harris, Sam Johnson (Duncan Taylor 64), Sean Maitland; Finn Russell (Adam Hastings 76), Greig Laidlaw (George Horne 64); Allan Dell (Gordon Reid 13), Stuart McInally (captain, Fraser Brown 52), Willem Nel (Zander Fagerson 58), Grant Gilchrist (Scott Cummings 52), Jonny Gray, Magnus Bradbury (Ryan Wilson 72), Jamie Ritchie, Blade Thomson.Tries: Maitland 30, Laidlaw 34, penalty try 57, 75.

Adam and Gavin Hastings are the first father-son combination to represent Scotland at the Rugby World Cup.Stuart Hogg’s first-half effort was the first Scotland drop-goal since Duncan Weir’s winner against Italy in 2014 and the first for a Scotland full-back since 1996.This is the first time Samoa have been nilled in a Rugby World Cup match.Related: All hail the return of the Rugby World Cup drop-goalIn a nutshellAnother sweltering night in the Kobe Misaki Stadium, another litany of handling errors. This was anything but a classic under the lights of this enclosed stadium – two fans took it into their own hands to try to entertain the crowd by running onto the pitch on separate occasions – but Scotland left with the all-important bonus-point win, albeit that their top try-scorer was ‘penalty’.Gregor Townsend has often talked about wanting Scotland to play the fastest brand of rugby in the world, but trying to do so in this sort of humidity also means that things get loose and errors are frequent. They did get traction when turning to their lineout maul from penalties and they defended strongly.Line time: Greig Laidlaw scores despite Ed Fidow tackling him (Getty Images)Scotland took the lead with an early Greig Laidlaw penalty but it took them half an hour to score a try with both sides dropping balls in the slippery conditions. Jack Lam described it as “a bar of soap” post-match and it was almost as if neither team wanted to retain possession, with turnovers leading to a fractured display.Sean Maitland, who had looked dangerous from the start, scored the first try, plucking a Finn Russell cross-kick out of the air and going over.The second came just four minutes later. Russell made a half-break, offloaded to Jamie Ritchie, who then found Laidlaw and the scrum-half bounced out of a tackle to make it to the line.Stuart Hogg made it 20-0 when he managed to keep his cool in the oppressive heat to slot a drop-goal from close to halfway after Maitland had taken a quick lineout. Even though they had got over the line there was no clear grounding, but because Ed Fidow had come in from the side to collapse the maul referee Pascal Gauzere ruled a penalty try and yellow-carded the Samoa wing.Wrapped up: Tim Nanai-Williams is tackled by Allan Dell and Jonny Gray of Scotland (Getty Images)Samoa did have a chance as the game entered the last ten minutes, gaining territory from penalties and Ulupano Seutini releasing Alapati Leiua into the 22 with a lovely inside pass. But Seutini then undid all his good work by overcooking a later penalty kick to touch, allowing Scotland to clear.Then came Scotland’s bonus-point try – in controversial circumstances. Maitland broke down the wing and looked to have lost control of the ball as he dove for the line. Yet when the officials reviewed it with the TMO, they deemed that Fidow had dived in with ‘knees to the back’ and that was the reason Maitland had not scored. So a penalty try for Scotland and a second yellow for Fidow, which meant he was red-carded.

Two of SA’s fastest men collide with unbelievable 360 flip that has unsurprising outcome

first_imgWednesday May 5, 2021 Two of SA’s fastest men collide with unbelievable 360 flip that has unsurprising outcome Stormers and South Africa Sevens flyer Seabelo Senatla was given his marching orders in the opening round of the Rainbow Cup in South Africa this past weekend when the Sharks came from behind and held on in an eventful 33-30 win in Cape Town. ADVERTISEMENTThe match featured two red cards, the first of which was given to Senatla by referee Jaco Peyper after the rapid winger took out Sharks fullback Aphelele Fassi in the air.The collision was unfortunate and certainly not malicious, as Senatla appeared to misjudge the length of the kick and instead of competing for the ball, he ran straight into Fassi’s legs, flipping him for a full rotation that thankfully didn’t end in injury.Seabelo Senatla red card after he flipped Aphelele Fassi (who was okay, thankfully) pic.twitter.com/l4jlArh1GJ— Grant Constable (@GrantConstable) May 4, 2021The young fullback had to be attended to after he had some trouble with his leg, but was able to continue the match.Senatla was shown a straight red card.Fassi, a flyer of note himself, was in great form on the day, racking up some impressive stats.ADVERTISEMENTThere was another red card in the game, after two yellows for the same offence (high tackle), but perhaps one of the more fascinating moments came when second row Reniel Hugo scored a hat-trick in just 6 minutes.

K2 House is the second stage upper floor extension to a renovation completed by fmd architects in 2008. The original brief for a young bachelor, was revised to now meet the needs of a young family with pets. The clients wanted to maintain the initial design intent while adding further versatile spaces to a bustling home.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe original design intent, of angular forms deriving from the tight planning constraints, extends through the upper floor of stage 2. This cohesion of external and internal forms are further expressed through the light reflecting faceted internal elements being expressed on the dark exterior with triangular metal cladding and geometric forms wrapping around both the deck area and new build. The perforated metal elements providing both privacy, shelter and shade whilst creating a sense of depth and transparency to the extension.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!First floor planThe sites constraints draw lines through the building, creating reference points to inform the large triangular window and bar joinery in the new upper floor lounge. This idea continues through the bathroom, stair balustrade and joinery details creating dynamic and structural spaces through the house.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsAs with the former renovation, retaining the existing building footprint was a key consideration, as outdoor spaces were already limited replanning within the envelope to achieve the required spatial and environmental considerations were major drivers behind the design approach. Hence the dwelling went vertical with a first floor extension including a new living space, deck area and bedroom with walk in robe. In order to fit within council setbacks and adhering to street sight lines, the extension is concealed from view from the street, internal areas worked into the existing roof line, maximising all available space.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe projects growth and versatility is testament to the enduring merits of quality design, by utilising the existing house envelope along with strategic skylights and angled ceiling lines – the extension enables the dwelling and family a new life whilst maximising the footprint of a small property.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessFlorence Culture and Art Exchange Centre / pendaSelected ProjectsBrazilian Artist Ernesto Neto Creates Giant Installation in Zurich’s Central StationArchitecture News Share ArchDaily K2 House / FMD ArchitectsSave this projectSaveK2 House / FMD Architects 2017 K2 House / FMD Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897313/k2-house-fmd-architects Clipboard CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Melbourne City, Australia Year: center_img “COPY” Architects: FMD Architects Area Area of this architecture project Australia CopyAbout this officeFMD ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsMelbourne CityAustraliaPublished on July 02, 2018Cite: “K2 House / FMD Architects” 02 Jul 2018.

New! 3 free pamphlets from Workers World: Red revolution, women, workers

first_imgA library of revolutionary literature is available for free download at workers.org under the “Books” tab.This spring, three new important pamphlets were added to that digital collection. All are collections of articles that appeared in the pages of Workers World newspaper. All have crucial, timely insights to offer about how to advance on the road to socialist liberation.100 Years Later: Some Lessons of the Great Bolshevik RevolutionHope and interest in revolutionary change that can bring down capitalism and result in socialism is growing in the U.S. Such a historic event occurred in Russia in 1917. These articles, “100 Years Later: Some Lessons of the Great Bolshevik Revolution,” written by Deirdre Griswold, editor of Workers World newspaper, mark the centennial of that event.The series examines the Bolshevik Revolution within the framework of Marx’s view of social evolution and also looks at some of Lenin’s theoretical contributions on the transformation of capitalism into its final stage, imperialism, and the impact on the working-class movement. Other topics covered are the social gains within the early USSR, the relation between the state and nationalities there, as well as internal and external advances and setbacks. The pamphlet ends with an “Open Letter to Revolutionaries Everywhere” from Larry Holmes, first secretary of Workers World Party.Every Struggle Is a Woman’s StruggleThe Workers World 2016-2018 articles selected for “Every Struggle Is a Woman’s Struggle” show the wide range of organizing that women in the U.S. are actively involved in: against racism and white supremacy; for the right to quality, comprehensive health care and self-determination of our own bodies; for ending the pay gap and for union representation and workers’ rights; and for recognition of transgender people’s rights. Articles on women in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Cuba reveal what’s possible for women building socialist workers’ states.The editors say in their introduction: “These articles … reflect a Marxist perspective about the role of women in society. Women are seen as a vital, integral component in the overarching struggle to end capitalism and classism. The basis of women’s oppression and inequality is rooted in patriarchy, which arose at the same time as classes developed.”Today’s fight for women’s liberation is essential to the overthrowing of patriarchal capitalist class society and establishing egalitarian socialism. Check out this Marxist perspective on women rising up, as a resource in that united struggle.Class War in West Virginia: Education Workers Strike, WinThe uprising of education workers in spring 2018 began with the thrilling, relentless and victorious West Virginia strike.This pamphlet — most of its articles written by organizers on the ground — documents each step of the rank-and-file actions.All spring in West Virginia, famous for earlier pitched battles between union miners and coal barons, class war raged. It was teachers, school workers, students, parents and communities on one side and right-wing capitalist politicians and owners on the other. The struggle was for the right to public education, for better wages and health care for school workers, for improved funding for students and against union-busting attacks. In addition to the pamphlet’s nitty-gritty organizing reports, its articles include a moving open letter to West Virginia educators from an out-of-state teacher, an inspiring look back at the historic 1920s’ “Battle of Blair Mountain” and its impact today on worker organizing, and a pithy “Lessons of the West Virginia strike.”Download this pamphlet as a resource in making your workplace and community organizing more effective. Use it to get ready since, to quote the old labor song, “Which Side Are You On?”: “There are no neutrals.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘A Lawyer Is Behind Bars; Serious Matter’ : Bombay High Court Raps Police Over Inconsistent Answers On Lawyer’s Arrest

first_imgNews Updates’A Lawyer Is Behind Bars; Serious Matter’ : Bombay High Court Raps Police Over Inconsistent Answers On Lawyer’s Arrest Sharmeen Hakim18 May 2021 3:10 AMShare This – xThe Bombay High Court on Monday took serious note of the police’s changing statements regarding a lawyer’s alleged illegal arrest and false implication in a kidnapping and extortion case registered on his client’s complaint last month. “Tell them we will not spare them if they play any mischief with the court,” Justice SJ Kathawalla, heading the division bench, told Chief Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakare, while directing the Kharghar police in Navi Mumbai to file their affidavit. Advertisement The Kharghar police arrested advocate Vimal Umeshchandra Jha for offences punishable under IPC sections 323, 364A, 365, 387, 506 r/w 34 for allegedly trying to extort Rs 3 crore from his client and subsequently kidnapping him. The police initially said Jha was arrested on April 3 and produced before the Magistrate on April 5. Later they claimed to have arrested him on April 4. The court was hearing a criminal PIL filed by the Lawyers for Just Society through Law Global seeking thirty-six-year-old Jha’s immediate release; compensation of Rs 5 crores from errant police officers; and guidelines to protect lawyer’s from police harassment. Advertisement Another petition filed by Jha, through advocate Prashant Pandey, seeks directions to quash the FIR. According to the plea, Navanth Gole, who has several criminal cases against him, was Jha’s client. The two became friends and Jha agreed to invest money in Gole’s businesses and buy his premises for Rs 80 lakhs. They accompanied each other to several places for work. However, Jha was arrested following a missing complaint by the advocate’s wife. Advertisement Advertisement During the hearing, Advocate Subhash Jha, for the petitioner, submitted that Jha was arrested on April 3 but produced before the Magistrate only on April 5, in violation of section 57 of the CrPC and Article 22(2) of the Constitution of India. He further said that Jha was illegally handcuffed when he was taken from the police station to the court. The prosecution did not deny taking him to court in handcuffs. Jha alleged that a police constable posted at Mantralaya was the complainant’s brother-in-law and they hatched a conspiracy to frame Jha in a false case. Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement When Justice Kathawalla sought to know the date of Jha’s arrest, Chief Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakare for the police said April 3, 2021, only to change his statement to say the arrest was made on April 4, at 4.39 am. Thakare said he was produced the very next day. Asked about the odd timing of the arrest, Thakare, on instructions, initially said a police officer had gone to Jha’s house, however, he later admitted Jha was already at the police station. “Why are you repeatedly making false statements before us? And your officer is present before you,” the bench asked. Thakare, said he was submitting as per the instructions. Following a query from the court, Thakare said that the CCTV footage from the relevant dates was also not available, as its installation began only on May 1, 2021. However, Jha countered him and said there are big CCTV cameras at the entrance of the police station premises. “What is the requirement at a police station? Is it not that all police stations should have CCTV cameras. A lawyer is behind bars. This is a very serious matter,” Justice Kathawalla said. Thakare also said that he was not going to support the police in restraining Jha with handcuffs. Pandey submitted that the lawyer was currently admitted to a private hospital owing to the various ailments he suffers from. Moreover, his mobile phone’s tower location would also reveal that he was in the police station since 8.30pm on April 3. The bench will now hear the matter on Wednesday.
