Should Tuilagi have been banned?

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Perpignan’s Henry Tuilagi will miss two of Samoa’s three November Tests after he was suspended for 50 days. The 34-year-old former Leicester Tigers star received the suspension for a dangerous tackle on La Rochelle scrum-half Damien Neveu on October 2 in their Top 14 clash. Perpignan – who suspended Tuilagi pending the disciplinary hearing – said that they would appeal against what they termed a ‘disproportionate’ punishment.

IRFU new player policy favours home grown talent

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “The aspirations for the IRFU are that in any single year, we would want to win the RBS Six Nations Championship, but also have our provincial teams winning the Heineken Cup and the RaboDirect Pro 12.  The key is finding the balance to allow this to happen, but not disadvantage one over the other and always remembering that a successful Ireland team is the catalyst for success at all levels below that.  This new strategy is essential to put Irish Rugby in the best position to reach that.”*The Connacht professional side is external to this process as it has recently commenced a new programme of structural and performance development agreed with the IRFU IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne said, “The challenges for the IRFU and the provincial teams are to continue to try to be successful at all levels, but balance this by recognising the model under which Irish Rugby has produced that success over the last 12 years.   The provincial teams have contributed hugely to the achievements of the Ireland team, but it is important to remember that the Ireland team is the marquee competitive outlet for the game in Ireland and also the financial mechanism that funds rugby at all levels.“On this basis, it is essential that the Ireland team is given every opportunity to remain competitive at international level and to do that, it requires Irish qualified players to gain continuous experience at club and provincial level.“Equally, non Irish qualified players have delivered much value and support to the success of the provincial teams and development of Irish players over the last number of years. The intention is that this will continue, but not to the detriment of the progress of Irish qualified players in key positions.“The refinements continue to allow the provinces to sign overseas players who will not alone play for the Province but critically allow young Irish players to learn from these players and put this knowledge into practice by taking over the position once that player’s contract is completed.center_img The Irish Rugby Football Union today announced some refinements to its professional player contract policy to further support the national succession strategy for the Ireland team to come into effect from Season 2013/14. .The challenge for the IRFU in an increasingly competitive environment is to strike a long term balance between success for the Ireland team, through exposing Irish players at the highest level of the professional club game in the Heineken Cup and RaboDirect Pr12 and the needs of the provincial teams in terms of the recruitment of quality overseas playing talent to complement Irish qualified players.The Ireland team remains the financial engine that supports each of the four provincial teams and so it is a critical objective for Irish Rugby that the Ireland team remains competitive in the long term by being populated by suitably experienced Irish qualified players. The opportunity to build this experience is primarily through time on the field in top level competitions.To support this strategy and following an extended period of consultation which took place with the Professional Game Boards of the provincial teams and the national team management the, following principles have now been agreed by the Union. The following principles are designed to deliver at least two suitably experienced Irish players in all 15 field positions for national team selection:One non Irish eligible (NIE) player only in each of the 15 field positions across the provinces of Leinster, Munster and Ulster e.g. one foreign player allowed across all three teams per position.*For the season 2013/14 and onwards, for any given position involving a contracted NIE player, a province will not be permitted to renew that NIE player contract or bring in a new NIE player into that same position in its squad.All future provincial injury replacement players must be eligible for selection for Ireland.All future provincial non Irish eligible player contracts will be position specific.*The Connacht professional side is external to this process as it has recently commenced a new programme of structural and performance development agreed with the IRFUThe desired outcome of the changes to contract policies is that Irish qualified players who have progressed through the provincial academy systems will see greater opportunities for professional game time experience, allowing both the IRFU and provinces to deliver the maximum amount of value for the €2.5million that is invested annually across the four provincial academies.The overall objective of the new policies is that there will be a minimum of two Irish qualified players per position playing in the Heineken Cup and RaboDirect Pro 12 as first choice selections. The refinement in the contract policies will be operated in such a manner as to enable the professional teams to enjoy continuing success at both National and Provincial levels.last_img read more

Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify For RWC 2019

It seems Spain might requested a change off ref before today’s game. We haven’t heard the last of this story….— Brendan gallagher (@gallagherbren) March 18, 2018The appointment of match officials for this competition are handled by Rugby Europe, rather than World Rugby. It is understood that Rugby Europe will review the match, as is established practice, and only after any findings are made public may World Rugby comment.Romania now head into Pool A at the World Cup, alongside hosts Japan, Six Nations champions Ireland, Scotland and whoever wins the final play-off place – which, as mentioned above, could be Spain.Related: Ireland win Six Nations Grand SlamSad sight: Players of Spain and of Belgium come together (Getty Images)What makes this all the more noteworthy is that last week Romania boss Lynn Howells stepped down from his position when it looked like the Romanians would miss out on automatic qualification. After making the call, Howells said: “It was not an easy decision to take. The last five years have been very beautiful, there have been many years of beautiful sporting adventure with a beautiful team. Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify For RWC 2019What could have been a momentous occasion descended into distressing scenes as Spanish rugby players confronted and attempted to grab Romanian referee Vlad Iordăchescu following their 18-10 loss to Belgium in the Rugby Europe Championship. A win for Spain would have seen Los Leones qualify automatically for Rugby World Cup 2019, but in losing that honour falls to Iordăchescu’s compatriots, Romania.In the aftermath of the tight match in which some of the Spaniards felt tight calls went the way of the hosts, Iordăchescu had to be escorted from the pitch as players from the losing side surged towards him.Spain’s scrum-half Guillaume Rouet is clearly seen trying to grab the referee while back-row Pierre Barthere is seen ironically clapping the match official, before the two sides come together in a melee.center_img Boiling over: Spanish players confront the referee after the Belgium defeat (Getty Images) The loss means that Los Leones must now play Portugal later in the year, in a decider to see who faces Samoa for a place at the World Cup in Japan in 18 months. If Spain win the first tie but lose the second, they will then go into a repechage with Canada, an African side and an Asia/Oceania side. If Spain go on to beat Samoa, they will be in Romania’s group at the World Cup.Ironic clap: Pierre Barthere aims his gesture at the Romanian official (Getty Images)Following this result, Spain captain Jaime Nava spoke to Radio Marca about any external factors in the result. He went on to say:  “I don’t want to think that rugby (has been pre-arranged) to put us out. When we were assigned Romanian officials, we were shocked. But this is rugby, the values are assumed.“For sure, today rugby has lost.”Related: Rugby was front page news in SpainNava did confront the ugly scenes, saying that: “I would like to apologise for what happened with the referee. The image at the end of the game does not represent the sport nor the values of this team. It must be understood however, we’ve lost part of our dream.” “I enjoyed working and co-ordinating a team that always wanted the victory and was always dedicated to the goal. I wish the team a lot of success, a further increase in the game and the best possible evolutions.”Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Pacific Combine creates new player pathway on islands

Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. World Rugby General Manager High Performance Peter Horne, who is the man behind the Combine idea, explains: “We’re trying to work on the athletic development of players earlier so then you get a better player at Test level.“It was a partnership with the three unions, the players’ association and World Rugby to try to improve the development of locally-based players. Then we’re looking for a professional environment where they can grow and develop, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of players available for the Test side.”Lead role: Scott Wisemantel coached England in South Africa after working on the Pacific Combine (Getty Images)In terms of the selection process, project lead Scott Wisemantel, England’s backs coach on their summer tour to South Africa, and his fellow coaches were looking to identify those with the best rugby ability, athleticism and effort, the last point taking in both what they did on the field and in their team environment off the field.The 30 players picked came together for the week-long Combine in Fiji’s capital Suva where they took part in medical screenings, fitness tests and numerous rugby drills.

It was a short programme but an effective one, and most importantly it is helping to develop players who will represent the Pacific Islands on the international stage rather than other countries.PACIFIC ISLANDS SPECIAL – NEW RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE OUT NOWAs all of the 30 players selected – 13 from Fiji Warriors, nine from Samoa A and eight from Tonga A – had been representing the allotted national second teams in the Pacific Challenge, they were already ‘captured’ for their country under World Rugby regulations.

As Horne says: “We want players who are identified to initially stay close to home so they can mature and grow and develop the skills to be a professional player before going elsewhere. There have been issues when players go to Europe too early.“This way they can become better players while being close to home. It’s vitally important we try to develop the soft skills of a player as that makes them better rugby players. Things like managing money, understanding contracts and so on.”New deal: Henry Stowers earned a contract with Western Force (Getty Images)In all, six players from the Combine were offered contracts. Fiji scrum-half Frank Lomani is at Melbourne Rebels while Samoa No 9 Melani Matavao is with Mitre 10 Cup side Otago. Henry Stowers joined Western Force and John Ika is at Hawke’s Bay while Charlie Pahulu and Fetuli Paea should link up with North Harbour once their work permits are agreed.The islands are already reaping the benefits given how well Lomani and Matavao played for their Test sides this summer and Combines are planned in both the Pacific and the Americas next year so more players will have a shot at professional contracts.

School participants netted $39,757.84 for JDRF, making the community service-minded, independent school the top-grossing school in the nation to help find a cure for diabetes and its complications.And this is the fourth time that Holy Innocents’ has been JDRF’s top-ranked school in the country. Last year, HIES faculty, staff, students and friends raised some $35,000 for JDRF, the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes research.“The JDRF Georgia Chapter is extremely grateful for the continuous outpouring ofsupport we receive from Holy Innocents’,” said Clanci Jordan, executive director of the JDRF Georgia Chapter.Amelie Wendling, a Type 1 diabetic who served as team captain for the latest Walk, on Oct. 15, 2011, said she was not surprised at Holy Innocents’ JDRF success. “Members of the Holy Innocents’ community are so supportive of their diabetic students that they are willing to go to great lengths to support their friends. This year, we had over 100 registered walkers who joined our team,which is more than any that we’ve had before!“It makes me proud that I got to see my team doing so much for a cause, and that this legacy will live on for another year.”At an awards ceremony in Atlanta Jan. 29, Holy Innocents’ received special recognition for its hard work—and a standing ovation—when the Walk results were announced. Several students were also singled out for their success in individual fund-raising: Matthew Christensen, Andrew Earle, Claire Hailey, Anna Kampfe, Hayden Kirk, Reed Stewart, and Amelie Wendling.And if such hard work and accolades weren’t enough, the HIES team also took home first place in the school division for its t-shirt design.Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School is one of the largest Episcopal day schools in the United States. A fully accredited, college-preparatory day school for 3-year-old through 12th-grade boys and girls, HIES occupies 42 acres, with separate Primary, Lower, Middle, and Upper School facilities, a fine arts building, and extensive athletics facilities.The school’s mission is to “develop in students a love of learning, respect for self and others, faith in God, and a sense of service to the world community.” Featured Events Rector Collierville, TN Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Martinsville, VA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Washington, DC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Posted Jan 31, 2012 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Knoxville, TN Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit a Press Releasecenter_img Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Tampa, FL Associate Rector Columbus, GA Holy Innocents’ finishes ‘first’ in juvenile diabetes fundraiser Top-grossing U.S. school for Walk to Cure Diabetes Rector Shreveport, LA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Smithfield, NC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Belleville, IL Submit an Event Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
