Social Media Round-up 2018-19 Season: Week Four

first_imgLast minute tries and intense disagreements on England’s squad selections, take a look at our wrap up of Twitter action from this past week. The Bristol Bears were also in a nail-biting affair against Harlequins. Up 20-13 with 15 minutes left, the pressure was clearly getting to the entire club as shown by their tweet below!

Eddie Jones’ reason for leaving Danny Cipriani out of the England squad was based on “form”.In that case, the first person he should have kicked to the curb is himself.#rugbyunited @RugbyEng— #RUGBYSTIG (@rugbystig) September 23, 2018Several rugby fans acknowledged that Jones claims to be picking the squad on form, and yet the undefeated Exeter Chiefs, have only three players selected to the squad (though Ben Moon was later called into the squad).

In fact the Springboks welcomed the Wallabies into Port Elizabeth ahead of their potentially crucial matchup in a brilliant act of sportsmanship. Eddie Jones’ Squad Selections Continue To Divide OpinionEngland head-coach Eddie Jones recently announced his 36-man wider training squad and he has caused considerable controversy by leaving out fly-half Danny Cipriani. Jones claims he is the third or fourth choice ten and has been left out because of form. Twitter responded mainly by criticising the decision. Out: Danny Cipriani has been left out of England’s training squad (Getty Images) Exeter Chiefs – currently 4 from 4 in the league, champions & runners up over last 2 seasons, contribute just 3 players to the England training squad.Do Exeter have an image problem, still seen as a small team, style clash with EJ’s way of playing? Why so few players chosen?— rugby (@theblitzdefence) September 22, 2018Regardless of Jones’s decisions, rugby battle continued this weekend in the Gallagher Premiership and Guinness Pro 14 with Cipriani, along with other absentees Don Armand and Sam Simmonds, all in action for their respective clubs.Simmonds in particular dusted off the disappointment by scoring two tries in Exeter’s 24-17 victory over Newcastle Falcons. @ThomasCollins13 pic.twitter.com/2EV2P0X3RB— Northampton Saints (@SaintsRugby) September 22, 2018However the missed conversion by fly-half Dan Bigger cost his team the chance to escape with a draw.

Danny Cipriani’s great try for the Rebels against the Sharks

first_imgFriday Mar 11, 2011 Danny Cipriani’s great try for the Rebels against the Sharks The Sharks beat the Rebels 34-32 in Melbourne on Friday night in what was a thrilling game that went down to the wire. One of the best tries on the night was this one scored by Danny Cipriani. The Rebels flyhalf had a mixed game as he managed to score this great solo effort, as well as slot a few vital kicks, including one late in the match that could have put his side in a position to take the win following a Jarod Saffy try. He did however have a few brain explosions, one in particular, where he single-handedly managed to gift the Sharks their bonus point try, scored by Meyer Bosman, which in the end meant the difference between the two sides. While the Rebels will be disappointed with a loss after being in a position to win the game, Cipriani will no doubt reflect on what could have been, as aside from a few errors, he’s looking impressive with his new side. This try showed that deceptive pace he has, as well as an eye for the gap as he glided through untouched from 60m out.Time: 01:38 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Oil Continues Recent Skid

first_img SHARE Oil Continues Recent Skid Previous articleSoybean Production Projected at Record Level in USDA ReportNext articleBonus Depreciation Bill Passes House Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jul 11, 2014 Facebook Twitter Home Energy Oil Continues Recent Skid SHARE Oil futures dropped below $101 a barrel on Friday to mark a fourth weekly loss and their lowest close in two months, as worries continued to fade over near-term threats to Iraqi oil production and Libyan production came back online. West Texas intermediate crude for August delivery  fell $2.10, or 2%, to settle at $100.83 on the New York Mercantile Exchange, a day after breaking a nine-day losing streak. Based on the most-active contracts, prices hadn’t closed below $101 since May 12. They ended roughly 3.1% lower for the week.The International Energy Agency on Friday said Iraqi production fell by 260,000 barrels a day in the past month after violence in the north of the country, but increased supply from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Nigeria and Angola offset the decline to leave OPEC production broadly steady at 30 million barrels a day in June.last_img read more

Their hands were tied and both had been shot in the head. The motive for this double murder is not yet known.The Prensa Libre newspaper quoted a source close to the Castillo family as saying he had recently changed his phone number after receiving many calls trying to extort money from him. He covered mainly sports and cultural events.“We urge the authorities to conduct an exhaustive investigation and to not rule out the possibility that the motive was linked to the victims’ work as journalists,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.“Guatemala is a country marked by violence and its media are particularly vulnerable. The creation of a national mechanism for protecting journalists, which we have been requesting for several years, should be a priority for the government.”Two journalists, Danilo Lopez and Federico Salazar, were murdered in the same region in 2015.

Accepting the mother’s prayer, the Bench of Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill directed the Additional Director General of Police (Prisons), Punjab to ensure that the petitioner’s son is taken from Amritsar (where he is presently detained) in Detention Center, Amritsar and consigned to Chandeni Rohingya Refugee Camp, Tehsil Nuh, District Mewat, Haryana. The matter before the Court The petitioner’s son was detained in Amritsar as he is alleged to have entered into India without any proper documents and without any passport and is stated to have been later registered as a refugee. The main contention put forth on behalf of the petitioner was that even if both the petitioner and petitioner’s son are to be detained, they be kept at one place being mother and son till they are deported back. The Additional Solicitor General of India representing Union of India informed the Court that the Ministry of Home Affairs or Union of India had no objection in case the petitioner is transferred provided the State of Punjab as well as the State of Haryana do not have any objection for the same. The Counsels representing State of Punjab as well as State of Haryana, upon being asked by the Court, expressed that both the States had no objection to the transfer of petitioner’s son so as to enable him to stay with his mother, where also he is going to be kept detained in a refugee camp. Thus, issuing the necessary directions to the Additional Director General of Police (Prisons), Punjab, the petition was disposed of by the Court. In related news, the Calcutta High Court recently asked the West Bengal Government & Union of India to take requisite steps to move the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in connection with the case of 4 Rohingyas who have served their sentence but continue to remain in prison.

FEI Return-To-Competition Measures Include Enhanced Horse Traceability

first_imgThe FEI has added new modules to the FEI HorseApp to monitor key mandatory requirements in the Return To Competition measures that will allow for a safe resumption of international sport in mainland Europe today, 12 April.Key areas covered by the Return to Competition protocols, which were launched on 30 March, include advance PCR testing (for certain designated events only), temperature monitoring of horses as well as enhanced Examination on Arrival procedures. Stringent biosecurity measures and mitigation plans, in line with the FEI Veterinary Regulations, also form part of the Return To Competition measures.The measures include a number of temporary provisions that will remain in place until 30 May 2021, providing a science-based safety margin to allow for monitoring of any further related outbreaks. This date can be extended if required.The FEI Veterinary Epidemiology Working Group has already agreed that there is currently no evidence indicating that it would be unsafe to return to international competition in mainland Europe as planned today, provided the mandated enhanced preventive measures are implemented. However, the Group will continue to monitor the evolution of the outbreaks on a daily basis.“The recent EHV-1 outbreak has underscored the importance of early detection and prevention in disease transmission,” FEI Veterinary Director Göran Åkerström said.“The FEI HorseApp is a crucial tool to facilitate the traceability of horses attending FEI Events, as well as for data gathering to allow for better risk assessment analysis and informed decision-making. It is a key element in ensuring a safe return to competition today and in minimising the impact of a disease outbreak in the future.”The FEI HorseApp will be used for uploading negative PCR results for designated events. In addition, the FEI Veterinarian conducting the Examination on Arrival will scan the horse’s microchip with a reader connected via Bluetooth to the FEI HorseApp, and also record the horse’s temperature in the FEI HorseApp.Under the Return To Competition measures, it will also be compulsory for all horses to be officially checked out at the Show Office using the FEI HorseApp. This ensures traceability should a disease outbreak occur.“Data driven technologies are a key part of the solution to the current EHV-1 pandemic,” FEI Director Information & Sports Technology Gaspard Dufour said.“We have been able to use the existing functionalities of the FEI HorseApp to actively monitor horse movement and horse health status and added new modules that provide for a safer return to competition.“But importantly, the collection of this quantitative data is critical to tracking the evolution of the disease and allows us to make better informed decisions concerning the smart and safe resumption of equestrian sporting activities.”The FEI HorseApp is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play for Android devices. The new version of the FEI Horse App, including the Return To Competition modules, is now available for download.The Return To Competition measures are available here.
