David Pocock’s Super Rugby career is officially over but all is not lost for Australian rugby

first_imgTuesday May 28, 2019 David Pocock’s Super Rugby career is officially over but all is not lost for Australian rugby David Pocock has played his final game for the Brumbies, officially retiring from playing Super Rugby. However, the star flanker hopes to be available for the Wallabies for the Rugby World Cup.ADVERTISEMENTPocock has played just 138 minutes in three games for the Brumbies this season with a frustrating calf injury keeping him sidelined.The 31-year-old met with Wallabies and Brumbies medical staff last week and agreed to end his Super Rugby career in a bid to feature at the World Cup.Pocock has a contract after the tournament with the Panasonic Wild Knights and will likely retire when that deal ends next year.“The Brumbies have given me a home for the last seven years. They’ve supported me through injury and given me the opportunity to work on my game and my leadership as part of an incredible group of men,” Pocock said.“After 13 years of professional rugby, I’m looking forward to the challenges the rest of this year holds and also thinking about what comes next.”The 77-Test veteran is considered one of the best on-ball players in the world and spent 13 seasons in Australian rugby with the Western Force and Brumbies. But recurring injuries meant he only played 43 of 100 games since joining the Brumbies in 2012 and missed most of 2013 and 2014 with knee injuries.ADVERTISEMENTThe Brumbies have three games remaining and are in the box seat to top the Australian conference and play finals for the first time since 2017.“At this stage, the goal is to get back in that jersey [Wallabies] and contribute leading up to the World Cup,” he said.

Lloris: Spurs can’t get worse

first_imgHugo Lloris has delivered a withering assessment of Tottenham’s campaign, admitting they would be hard pushed to get any worse next season. “I mean, we conceded a lot of bad defeats. This season we had sometimes the feeling that we gave up. We can’t allow this kind of behaviour. We have to show more character. “We did it in different games but we have to keep our mentality at the best level because in this league you have to be 100 per cent every time you play.” Lloris’ comments about his team-mates’ lack of character is quite the admission, but understandable given embarrassing defeats to the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea. “I’m a competitor and I try always to do my best for the team,” he said. “I want to see my team-mates do the same. “But football is not easy. It is a collective sport and we have to go all together in the same way. “It’s strange because we have a feeling that we can play at a very high level. “But we can also play at a very bad level during the same game. It has put us in trouble a lot of times this season.” Even in victory Lloris has not been overjoyed by some of Tottenham’s performances, such as Saturday’s 3-1 defeat of embattled Fulham. Christian Eriksen was officially named man-of-the-match but the goalkeeper’s fine display meant he also left White Hart Lane with a bottle of champagne. “It is always a pleasure to receive that kind of thing but if the goalkeeper is man of the match then it means the team didn’t do the job properly,” Lloris said. “We conceded too many chances, but we were strong and we did the job. I think we made a good performance offensively. “We had good possession of the ball and I think the best team won. Fulham has some chances to stay still and I wish them the best.” Despite the departure of key man Gareth Bale, there was an air of excitement around White Hart Lane in the summer following a flurry of big-name signings. Fast forward to now, though, and Andre Villas-Boas’ successor Tim Sherwood is already under-fire, Champions League qualification has again evaded them and fans’ dissatisfaction is growing. Press Association Lloris shares that frustration, accepting “fourth place is finished” and that Spurs can only now push for a place in the Europa League, which will no doubt lead to heightened speculation about the future of players like the France goalkeeper. “I think all the players in the squad have the ambition to play in the Champions League,” Lloris said in response to such talk. “It is the ambition of the club as well. “The fans expect this competition but we are in the Premier League and it is not easy to get a ticket. “This season we had a good start, but after the defeat against City away we lost a bit of confidence. “After that we were in trouble, especially in the concentration. We conceded a lot of goals after individual mistakes and you know when you play against top teams it is too difficult to come back in the game. “When you play a team at the bottom of the league or the second half of the table, you have a chance to come back as we did against West Brom, as we did again against Fulham. “But we have to improve, we know this season that the top-four, top-five teams were better than us so we have to keep working and hope to be better next season.” Asked if Spurs can kick on next term, Lloris responded: “I hope so. It will be difficult to do worse, especially against the top four or five teams. last_img read more

Covering USC has been a wild journey

first_imgAs it becomes time for many — fans, analysts, coaches and players — to reflect on the past football season, it also becomes time for me to reflect on not only the past football season but also the last year, as my tenure as the sports editor of the Daily Trojan has come to an end.It’s been a wild ride fraught with some of the craziest and most unbelievable events I could have imagined prior to taking this job, but as I have come to find out, even the most crazy and unbelievable become just another day on the job at USC.There have been success stories unlike any other, national championships and undefeated seasons. These are what, hopefully, I’ll be able to remember as I look back years from now on what I covered while at USC. The football team is always going to be the most impressive beat to put on a resume, and though in the future they may have national championship hopes, there are other teams who have been significantly more successful this season, namely men’s and women’s water polo, beach volleyball, lacrosse and soccer.I have also gotten to be a part of a turning point in USC sports culture, a time when students are (relatively) excited about basketball. In addition to boasting a nearly perfect record at home, the basketball team also made their first NCAA tournament in five years and plays one of the most exciting styles in the country.I came in at a good time in USC sports culture — lots of teams were up-and-coming — despite the drama that happened nearly every week on the football field. There have been some dramatic — and not in a good way — situations at practice, at games and even at fundraisers, and this year looked to be no different until the team had an about-face and made their season one all my friends are jealous that I get to cover.Working with USC athletics has taught me a lot about the business of sport. I’ve come to realize through my classes and my time working that sports is just that — a business. It’s a wonderfully dizzying business that keeps you on your toes and keeps you engaged with your work; and just when you think you’re getting the hang of it, it manages to throw you a curveball you never saw coming.I’m very thankful for the work. It’s not only allowed me to grow as a journalist and a person, but has also allowed me to experience some of the coolest sporting events this school has participated in, including this year’s football game in Arlington against Alabama and the games in Utah and Seattle.As exciting as it is to be a fan right now (my dad spends far too much time every day keeping up with potential recruits and practice recaps), it is even more special to be able to go to school at this time and be a part of what appears to be beginning of a historic ride for USC football.As this football season winds to a close, I hope that everyone who wants to has been able to experience a thoroughly entertaining and uplifting season that has left everyone in the Trojan Family with a hopeful outlook on the future. Being a student while the team “struggled” through average seasons — by USC’s standards — makes it so much more worthwhile when things finally start looking up. Hopefully with most of that drama behind the program, I will be able to enjoy one more blissfully successful USC season next year — a year when all the talks of Rose Bowl games, College Football Playoffs and Heisman hopefuls seem to be very valid.The culture around USC sports is getting back to being a national powerhouse and that makes slogging through the previous years as a student feeling a little bit slighted about the lack of positive publicity worth it.Regardless of where the team finishes this year, the season will be considered a success because of the rough beginning to the year; and next year, though expectations will be high, there finally seems to be the proper infrastructure in place to follow through on those high goals. There isn’t a better time to get to not only cover USC, but also be a fan of the Trojans. And isn’t that what sports is all about? Well, no, in college sports it’s pretty much all about winning, but at least for me, I’ve enjoyed this turbulent yet exciting ride.Hailey Tucker is a junior majoring in broadcast and digital journalism.

True gender equality rests in South Africans’ hands

first_imgPontsho Manzi is a business woman, a professional and motivational speaker, facilitator, coach, image consultant and author of Diary for Fabulous You. She is a mentor to the youth of South Africa, especially girls through her non-profit organisation, FabGalzAs South Africa commemorates two decades of democracy, we can count amongst our greatest achievements that women now have the opportunity to transcend the barriers of their race, gender and class to become anything and anyone they choose.This is enabled by amongst others, government’s policy of equal education for all for our young; a policy of gender parity in the public sector; and equity targets in the corporate sector.But have the lives of women truly improved in the past 20 years?  We may have the opportunity to access opportunities but do we have the ability to do so?  Are we adequately equipped to take advantage of these opportunities?The recent Brand South Africa Sowetan Dialogues in Bloemfontein focused on the role women have and can play in the country’s democracy; speakers such as the Honourable Sisi Mabe – Speaker of the Free State Legislature; Mbuyiselo Botha from Sonke Gender Justice; Kenosi Machepa from the Ministry of Women; and dairy farmer Nompi Zim discussed how women’s rights were, in fact, human rights, and that men needed to support women to achieve a society free from sex and gender discrimination.A report compiled by Statistics South Africa in 2013 observes that “South Africa ranks fourth among the 87 countries covered by the 2012 Social Institutions and Gender Index of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. It is the highest ranked country in Africa in this index.”South Africa’s high ranking reflects the country’s strong legal framework in respect of gender equality and women’s rights.South Africa also performs well against the indicators specified for Goal 3 of the Millennium Development Goals, the goal that focuses on gender equality and women’s empowerment.Our legislative and policy environment suggests that we should be well on our way to redressing the historic gender imbalances in our country.  However the reality with which we are faced contradicts this.  Why?First and foremost, we need to socialise our boy and girl children differently; boys need to understand that men and women are different, but equal.  A healthy, productive and well-functioning society requires both men and women to be skilled and empowered.Girl children must be empowered to realise that, while South Africa remains a patriarchal society, they are as valuable and necessary to a successful nation as men.We need to pay special attention to building the self-confidence and self-esteem of our girl children.This requires the concerted effort of each and every one of us – parents, caregivers, relatives, sisters, uncles, aunts – everyone.There is a line in the Hollywood movie Pretty Woman that has great resonance for me – “the bad stuff is easier to believe”.  That is, it is easier to believe it when people say we are inferior, subordinate, weak, and so on.BOLD WOMEN MOVE THE COUNTRY FORWARDIf we want girl children to grow into young women who can take their rightful places in building another generation of strong, bold women who can make a meaningful contribution to our country and its development, we need to be conscious of this.Secondly, we need to pay attention – and encourage women to do the same – to the health of our girl children.This ranges from good nutrition to the necessary media interventions. It is easy to say that we cannot afford to have good nutrition, and I agree; good quality food does cost money.Those who have a garden, start a home vegetable garden – like our grandmothers and mothers did; it will soon be fruitful enough to provide for the entire family.Research shows that domestic responsibilities are still borne mainly by girls and women.  This includes fetching of water and fetching of fuel to heat the home and prepare food.  This means that the time of girl children is taken up with chores.Chores should be shared equally among boys and girls.  Girls must have equal opportunities to benefit from the education to which they are legally and rightly entitled.With the increasing levels of gender-based violence, and the fact that despite the best policies, the lives of the women of our country are not progressing as fast as they should, we need to do things differently. This generation of women must not be found wanting by those that will follow!  We must all play our part!Pontsho Manzi is a business woman, a professional and motivational speaker, facilitator, coach, image consultant and author of Diary for Fabulous You.

Farm Bureau applauds CAUV reforms proposed in House budget

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Much-needed reform of Ohio’s CAUV formula has been included in the Ohio House’s biennial budget proposal, which is good news for Ohio’s family farmers, according to the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.Farm Bureau is encouraging its members to contact their state representatives and ask them to protect and keep the Current Agricultural Use Value language throughout the budget process. Legislator contact information is at FarmVotesMatter.org. Click on Legislative Action Center.OFBF has been advocating for the CAUV reforms in response to farmland tax increases that have exceeded 300% in recent years. The huge tax increases have hit farmers at a time when farm income has experienced a historic decline.Ohioans voted to create the CAUV program in 1973 as a means of preserving farmland in the state. Under CAUV, farmland is taxed at a rate that reflects its value for agricultural purposes instead of its value as development property.The budget proposal would address nonfarm influences from the formula that tend to artificially raise CAUV values. It would also ensure that farmers are not penalized for adopting conservation practices that protect water quality.“Our members have said CAUV reform is their No. 1 priority,” said Yvonne Lesicko, Ohio Farm Bureau’s vice president, public policy. “Farmers need to contact their legislators, let them know how important this is and ask them to support CAUV reform.”last_img read more

ICC World Twenty20: Jason Roy ends New Zealand’s dream run in India

first_imgHello and Welcome to the LIVE COVERAGE of the ICC World Twenty20 semi-final clash between England and New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. (Live Scorecard) UpdatesEngland have crushed New Zealand in the first semi-final. They will be closely following tomorrow’s clash between two heavyweight T20 teams. Who will join England in the final on Sunday?  England skipper Eoin Morgan says their team were improving with every game after the big defeat to West Indies in their openerWe play a very aggressive brand with the bat. It’s lead by Hales and Roy at the top. It’s a good position to be in with the death bowlers we have and the long batting line-up. When I have gone past one ball, I have managed to strike it really well. So it’s about going past that one ball. Absolutely, that’s what we kind of dream of as a kid. Everyone has made a lot of sacrifices. And there have been plenty of things going our way in the last two weeks. So we’ll go out there and play the way we want to. Looking back at the West Indies game, we ran into an in-form Chris Gayle who is very difficult to stop. We probably didn’t hit our straps that day. But we’ve kept improving from there. We’ve managed to build confidence from the 4 wins we have had and hope to take it into the final: MorganKane Williamson says he believed he could restrict England at the half-way stage. But Roy was too good on the night. advertisementAt the halfway stage, I knew we were a little bit short especially after the start we got. Credit to the England bowlers, but after the start we got, 180 would have been a realistic target. But we got beaten by a better team. Then they came out hard as we knew they would. It was a fantastic knock by Roy to break the back of the total. We mis-hit a few shots that on another day might have gone our way. England bowled really well in the death and made life difficult. But still we had belief in the camp to defend the score. The damage was done early and they played well throughout both innings: WilliamsonIt was a complete performance from England. They have changed the way they played limited-overs cricket right after they crashed out of ICC World Cup 2015 Down Under. They defeated New Zealand, Australia and Pakistan in T20I series after the 50-over World Cup. The new-look team lead by big-hitters Jos Buttler, Jason Roy and  Alex Hales have looked solid. Joe Root has been one of the most consistent performers across formats. All their hard work has been rewarded with a berth in the final of the World T20 this year and they now have a good chance of becoming the first ever team to lift the T20I title twice. On the other hand, New Zealand who look complete at this year’s tournament winning all their league matches faltered on the big night. Their wait to reach their first final continues.  The winning moment for #ENG in Delhi! #WT20 here you come!!! #ENGvNZ pic.twitter.com/ODRRLDIWaf ICC (@ICC) March 30, 2016No prizes for guessing the Man of the Match. “It came off for me tonight and thankfully we won quite well. Just saw it as a chance to go out there on a decent wicket and give it a crack. It’s one of those wickets where if you don’t get off to a good start, there might be hiccups in the middle. I was lucky to get a few boundaries early on in the innings. All of us have the license to go out and express ourselves,” says Jason Roy after firing England into their second final with a blistering 44-ball 78.England innings 22.08 IST: Buttler finishes it off with a six.

Ben Stokes (3/26) and Chris Jordan (1/24) were the pick of the bowlers for England. Moen Ali also played his part by snapping the 74-run stand between Williamson and Munro. New Zealand will be gutted with what they have on the board. They will be banking on the variety in their bowling attack to do the trick. England batsmen are more than capable of scoring 154 runs on this track. Join us for the chase in ten minutes.  20.32 IST: OUT! Stokes is doing the trick for England in the death overs.

NZ 133/3 in 16 overs. 20.05 IST: New Zealand have lost a bit of steam in the last three overs. However, they are well placed on 121/3 at the end of 15 overs.
