New Zealand had to settle for fourth.The New Zealand Rugby Union and World Rugby said the inaugural event in Hamilton over the weekend was a success, but New Zealand must now tender to host a series from 2020 onwards.New Zealand Sevens Tournament general manager Steve Dunbar said hosting a world series in New Zealand could not be taken for granted.He said while there are no guarantees, New Zealand was a big contributor towards the global Sevens series both in terms of having a team that participates in all of the tournaments and its success at running the event for the last 19 years, 18 of them in Wellington.”A pretty good head start on a lot of other countries.”Mr Dunbar said whispers on “the streets” suggested Fiji was keen to replace New Zealand as hosts of the international tournament.”It would be wonderful for the global game and Fiji has contributed a lot to Sevens.”Mr Dunbar said World Rugby had been glowing in its comments about the Hamilton tournament.”They have been particularly happy about the field of play (at Waikato Stadium) and think it is the best there is on the global series.”A decision on hosting from 2020 will be made later this year.In the meantime next year’s event will be held on 26-27 January at Waikato Stadium.last_img read more

Azkals flaunt quality under continental spotlight

first_imgMagic escape last route for Broner LATEST STORIES Few expected the Azkals to stay competitive against a Korean team that regularly plays in the World Cup and only recently stunned former World Cup champion Germany, 2-0.But the Azkals were hardly fazed by the quality and experience of a Korean side, which had established players in Ki Sung-yueng of Newcastle United and Lee Chung-yong, formerly of Crystal Palace.The tactical brilliance of the staff led by Eriksson and deputies Scott Cooper and Chris Greatwich allowed the Azkals to cope with the Korean assault for majority of the match.It took some tweaks and the introduction of Lee early in the second half for Korea to finally break down the Azkals.Lee, who played four seasons in the Premier League, praised the Azkals’ gallant stand.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

I’m happy to get a result, but the Philippines is good. They have a good future in this tournament.”The three-man defense anchored by Alvaro Silva put bodies on the line just to deny the Koreans opportunities, while Michael Falkesgaard produced three big saves to keep the Azkals in the match.“I’m happy with the performance; but I’m also sad because we could have gotten something out of it,” said Azkals manager Dan Palami. “But if somebody told us before the game that it was going to be just 1-nil, I would take it any time against a team like South Korea.

First F-35 completed

first_img The F-35 is being developed by an international contractor-government partnership consisting of the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Denmark and Norway. The F-35 could be available as early as 2014 through the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program for countries not currently participating in the multinational development effort. The first F-35 moved out of the Fort Worth factory Feb. 19. Towed by a tractor, the jet was rolled to a nearby fueling facility where its fuel system will be checked out. Structural coupling and ground-vibration testing will follow. Engine runs will begin in late spring and will lead into taxi tests along the Fort Worth runway in advance of the first flight. “Our team’s engineers, mechanics and assemblers deserve high praise for the precise way in which this airplane came together with very few issues,” said Dan Crowley, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and JSF program general manager. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The first jet and five flight-test aircraft built in the conventional takeoff-and-landing versions will come to Edwards. The other nine flight-test aircraft will be carrier and short-takeoff versions that will be tested by the Navy and the Marine Corps in Maryland. While the F-35 jets are being assembled in Texas, parts for them are manufactured by Lockheed Martin in Palmdale and Northrop Grumman assembles the center fuselage at its own Palmdale plant. Several hundred people work on the jet in Palmdale. Up to 1,100 people are expected to work on Edwards test forces. The jet will be built in a conventional version for the Air Force, as well as in a version equipped to land on Navy carriers and one for the Marine Corps that will take off on shortened runways and land vertically. The F-35 is intended to replace a number of fighter jets and attack aircraft, including the Air Force’s A-10s and F-16s, the Navy’s F/A-18s, the Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harriers, and the United Kingdom’s Harrier aircraft. last_img read more
