Battle of the backrows: New Zealand v England

first_img Leading from the front: Chris Robshaw has never let England down England World Cup winner Richard Hill, no stranger to backrow battles, assesses the key match-ups in tomorrow’s First Test at Eden Park LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The silent assassin: Richard Hill knows New Zealand is the ultimate testing groundWinner of 71 caps for England and famously the only man not to be dropped by Sir Clive Woodward, Richard Hill faced New Zealand on seven times, beating them on two occasions, most famously in 2003 in Wellington. A member of the feted Dallaglio, Back and Hill triumvirate, Hill played all his club rugby at Saracens. Here he gives his measured views on the task that awaits Stuart Lancaster’s backrow tomorrow…Openside: Chris Robshaw (28, 25 caps) v Richie McCaw (33, 124 caps)“There’s been a lot of debate around Chris Robshaw’s role at seven, but that’s nothing new. There’s this general consensus that he’s a six and a half but I can tell you that every time he’s played for England, he’s fronted up, whatever the number on his back. He consistently puts his body on the line and leads from the front. He’s obviously up against a hugely experienced operator in Richie (McCaw). Richie is very astute and will only go to the breakdown if he has a 95 per cent chance of winning it. When you’re up against him, you have to assume he’ll commit every time and the minute you hesitate is the time he picks his moment.“Sometimes he recognises he can’t steal the ball on the floor so he goes up and fill the space beyond they ball so someone else can do the work. It’s funny, partly because of the reputation he has, once he’s at the breakdown, every opposition player thinks they have to clear him out but the England backrow have to be savvy and not all try and smash him at once because it will open up opportunities for others. The All Blacks don’t need a second invitation to take advantage.”The man to stop: Richie McCaw is key to New Zealand at the breakdownNo 8: Ben Morgan (25, 20 caps) v Jerome Kaino (31, 48 caps)“Ben Morgan has done well in an England shirt. I remember they faltered against Wales at the Millennium Stadium when they didn’t have his go forward. What I like about his battle with Billy (Vunipola) is that they’ve both taken up the mantle of wanting to better themselves. Ben has had to bide his time with the emergence of Billy but when he was injured in this Six Nations, he did admirably. When England have a ball-carrying No 8, who makes the gainline, they tend to do better.center_img “Jerome Kaino hasn’t been in an All Black shirt since the 2011 World Cup because he’s been in Japan but he brings physicality, strong work at the breakdown and having the ball in hand. England can take advantage if they get the nudge on at the scrum. It’ll be interesting to know how comfortable Kaino is low-down with the ball at his feet. We all know Kieran Read has good hands at close-quarters, but can Kaino could be pressured. The job for the England pack is to make it difficult at the back of the scrum. I guess looking at the bigger picture, it’s no bad thing for Steve Hansen to see what they have behind Read with his leadership qualities. If McCaw has to leave the field tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if either he, or Liam Messam takes responsibilty.”Ball-carrying threat: Ben Morgan adds go-forward, while Keiran Read misses outBlindside: James Haskell (29, 50 caps) v Liam Messam (30, 29 caps)“James will be wanting to prove he can utilise what he learnt with the Highlanders in 2012 under Jamie Joseph when he was more often deployed as an openside, a position he’s been playing a bit with Wasps this season. Hopefully that bit of extra agility that will help. England will primarily use Haskell for his physical edge, front up hits and ball carries. I think six is his best position and others are better at controlling the ball at the base of the scrum.“Liam Messam has been outstanding in recent years. He hits hard and is a real workhorse. I can’t see an inch being given by either men. As a unit I alway found they focused the breakdown. They have good game intelligence and work together as both as individuals and pairs,  so England will have to be wary of their counter-attacking. In not worried, however, the England management will have done their homework. They’ll be ready.” Old friends: Jerome Kaino takes some stopping as James Haskell gets involvedRichard Hill was speaking on behalf of QBE, the business insurance specialist, official insurance partner of England Rugby.

Sonny Bill Williams and Clarence Tillman III brawl at weigh-in

first_imgTuesday Feb 7, 2012 Sonny Bill Williams and Clarence Tillman III brawl at weigh-in Sonny Bill Williams has hit the headlines again following an altercation with his next boxing opponent, Clarence Tillman III. The scuffle broke out at their weigh-in ahead of Wednesday night’s clash for the vacant New Zealand Heavyweight title. Williams and Tillman faced off in Hamilton ahead of the fight that came about after Williams’ planned opponent, Richard Tutaki, was scratched from the fight following an arrest on various charges.The All Black center is looking to gain some respect following a string of questionable fights. This will be his fifth as a professional boxer, with his last fight being against 43 year old Alipate Liava’a.Williams and Tillman came to blows after some verbal sparring sparked a shove, then quick right from the big American. Williams’ brother John tackled him off to the side, squashing trainer Anthony Mundine in the process, as Liam Messam watched on. “It’s pretty below the belt, but that’s all good,” said Williams.“He’s the one talking it up at the press conference. We should leave it all in the ring tomorrow, but obviously there is other things on his mind and he wants to bring the fight right now. If he’d wanted to, we could have got it on right now. Just adds a bit more spice to it, doesn’t it?“I didn’t feel nothing man,” Williams insisted, despite footage showing that the Tillman shot landed.Was this a real altercation, or just another publicity stunt to hype up a fight?Update: Watch what happened hereADVERTISEMENT 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.

Syrian conflict leads to PDK reprisals against pro-PKK media

first_img June 4, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Syrian conflict leads to PDK reprisals against pro-PKK media Journalists, news media and freedom of information in Iraqi Kurdistan have been hit by a recent increase in the traditional tension between the Kurdistan Democratic Party (PDK), whose leader, Masoud Barzani, is Iraqi Kurdistan’s president, and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the Turkish armed separatist group that has many fighters based in Iraqi Kurdistan.The friction between the rival groups has been exacerbated by the war in neighbouring Syria, where the PKK’s Syrian wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), is the leading political force in the mainly Kurdish areas in the north and has been harassing pro-PDK institutions and expelling pro-Barzani politicians.The PDK retaliated in Iraqi Kurdistan on 19 May against eight pro-PKK entities in three of the cities it controls, Erbil, Dohuk and Zakho. The targeted entities included two media outlets: DIHA, a Turkish news agency, and the monthly Rojava Welat. Their offices were closed and their journalists were detained for several hours.Various groups, including the Organization of Free Women in Kurdistan (RJAK), one of the entities targeted by the 19 May operation, held a demonstration yesterday outside the parliament in Erbil.Wahbi Damir, DIHA’s senior representative in Iraqi Kurdistan, said there was no legal basis for the closure of DIHA’s offices. “We were not shown any warrant,” he told Reporters Without Borders, despite being warned not to talk to the media. “The security forces have closed our offices with all our journalistic material inside.”Najiba Umlar of the Party for a Democratic Solution in Kurdistan (PÇDK), whose offices were also attacked and closed, told Reporters Without Borders that the PDK is preventing her party and the pro-PKK media from working freely in PDK-controlled areas. “The PDK does not tolerate our views on the Kurdish nationalist movement in Turkey and Syria,” she said.For their part, pro-PDK media are finding it hard to operate freely in PYD-controlled areas in northern Syria.Reporters Without Borders urges the various political parties to respect the work of journalists. At the same time, media and journalists must be seen to work in an independent and professional manner, fulfilling their watchdog role, instead of fuelling traditional political tension and rivalry.

Court closes new daily six days after its launch

first_img After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Receive email alerts IranMiddle East – North Africa to go further February 25, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information March 18, 2021 Find out more Organisation Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders condemns today’s decision by a Tehran media court to close the reformist daily Aseman (Sky) after only six issues at the Tehran deputy prosecutor’s request.“This act of censorship is unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is indicative of the media war that is being waged by the Revolutionary Guards and orchestrated by courts, to the detriment of freedom of information. We demand the immediate reopening of this newspaper.Launched as a weekly in 2012, Aseman was given permission to begin publishing as a daily on 15 February. Its closure was the result of an article in its 18 February issue in which a university academic and politician, referring to an event in the 1980s, criticized “the inhuman law of qisas” (an eye for an eye).Criticized by all international and Iranian human rights groups, this controversial principle is one of the leading provisions of Iran’s Islamic penal code.The day after the article appeared, media that support the Revolutionary Guards and other conservative media, led by Fars News and Tasnim, began condemning the comment, calling it “an insult to Islam’s sacred character.”The decision to close Aseman was posted today on the website of the Tehran prosecutor’s office, which also intends to prosecute Abass Bozrgmeher, the newspaper’s editor.According to Bozrgmeher, the use of the adjective “inhuman” in the article was a mistake. “I explained in an editorial in the newspaper that the word ‘inhuman’ was deleted and that its appearance was due to a technical error.” Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 News News Follow the news on Iran February 20, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court closes new daily six days after its launch News June 9, 2021 Find out more RSF_en last_img read more
