Guinness Premiership Tries – Round 1

first_imgThursday Sep 10, 2009 Guinness Premiership Tries – Round 1 The Guinness Premiership kicked off this past weekend and despite all the controversy of the last few months, record crowds turned out across the country to witness some of the great rugby on display.As we saw with the clip of Nicky Robinson scoring a few days ago, Gloucester comfortably won their West Country derby with Bath. Both sides scored some nice tries, with James Simpson-Daniels scoring twice. Shontayne Hape claimed a consolation try for Bath though, following some neat handling.Harlequins were in the headlines again for the wrong reasons, as their hopes of righting the wrongs of the bloodgate scandal were diminished within the first minute against Wasps, as George Robson was sent of for headbutting Joe Simpson.Quins showed character to stay in the match in front of a huge crowd at Twickenham, but were undone 26-15 in the end, with Wasps new signing Tom Varndell picking up two valuable tries.Northampton picked up a 20-17 win against Worcester in an entertaining match at Franklins Gardens. Paul Diggin scored the match winning try with two minutes left in the contest.Elsewhere, the newly restructured Saracens got their season off to a good start as they beat last seasons runners-up, London Irish, 18-14.

The main crop planted there are fast-growing softwood conifers and in the last three years large quantities of these have been felled,” he said.“Coillte are currently working towards replanting the sections of the forest that have been felled and I have asked them to give serious consideration to reintroducing the native oak trees that once thrived in Cratloe.”The woods are historic in themselves as Cratloe oak beams were used in the construction of many landmark buildings including the Houses of Parliament in Westminister and the Royal Palace in Amsterdam.It has also been said that the oak timbers were used to construct the hull of Lord Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, at the Battle of Trafalgar. Closer to home, beams from Cratloe Woods were used in the construction of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Limerick City.“In the case of the Houses of Parliament in London, it can be said that seismic moments in world history have unfolded beneath its ‘Cratloe’ roof. In the House of Commons chamber, two world wars have been declared and the partition of the Ireland was approved.“In the adjoining Westminster Hall deceased members of the royal family have lain in state and Scotland’s William Wallace was famously tried for treason, all beneath a roof constructed with Cratloe Oak,” Mayor Crowe said.“It’s an absolute shame that for centuries the beautiful oaks of Cratloe have been obliterated without any replanting whatsoever. Only a small copse of native trees now survive but within this copse could lie a very sustainable solution to rejuvenating oak trees in the wider area.“Coillte officials have intimated that acorns from this copse could be collected and brought to one of their seeding nurseries. Cultivated saplings from these acorns would contain the DNA of their ancient parent trees and as a result would have a resilience to various diseases that are common in trees.“This method of rejuvenation would also ensure that the new oaks in Cratloe would be very authentic progeny of their famous ancestors,”last_img read more

Kroos: Brazil Better than 2014

first_imgToni Kroos rates Brazil “two grades” higher than when Germany hammered the ‘Selecao’ 7-1 at the 2014 World Cup. Kroos scored twice in the Belo Horizonte semifinal at Brazil 2014 when Germany blitzed the hosts, who were missing superstar forward Neymar, with five goals in a dramatic opening 30 minutes of what became the heaviest home defeat in Brazil’s history.Ahead of the teams’ meeting on Tuesday, Germany midfielder Kroos is not expecting a repeat: “When I look at the current team in comparison to 2014, they are two grades better.“They have really good people, my (Real Madrid) teammate Casemiro is doing well – they have come together well. Brazil is definitely one of the World Cup favourites.” Germany face Brazil at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium after the Selecao beat Russia 3-0 in Moscow on Friday, with Neymar again sidelined by injury.Second-half goals by Miranda, Paulinho and a Philippe Countinho penalty sealed the win at Moscow’s Luzhniki stadium, which hosts the World Cup final on July 15.The Germans warmed up with a 1-1 draw against Spain in Duesseldorf to extend their unbeaten run to 22 matches. Rodrigo Moreno’s goal after just six minutes was cancelled out by Thomas Mueller’s superb first-half strike on Friday.With one eye on their World Cup defence, Joachim Loew consoled himself with the “very, very important lessons” Germany learnt, but his senior stars were unhappy.Centre-back Jerome Boeteng said “everything” was wrong with the opening 20 minutes when Andres Iniesta gave the German midfield a masterclass as Spain dominated.“Our pressing didn’t work, then they played cat and mouse with us,” Boateng fumed. “We wanted to play better from the back, use our chances, pass well, not lose the ball so fast.“Our counter-attacking game must be better, we were hit three or four times on the counter, you can’t have that. It’s not all bad, but we have a lot of work and we must come together as a team.”Kroos agreed: “In the first 20 minutes we were just chasing after them.”Loew expects to make five changes against Brazil. Stars Thomas Mueller and Mesut Ozil have been released, as was previously arranged, to give them a break.Hertha Berlin left-back Marvin Plattenhardt will play at his home stadium, while Manchester City’s Leroy Sane should replace Julian Draxler on the wing. Ilkay Gundogan is set to replace Sami Khedira, who suffered a back knock against Spain.The Spanish provided Loew with the tough test he wanted as Germany count down to their first World Cup match against Mexico in Moscow on June 17.“It was worth the risk, even when we didn’t always manage to put pressure on them up front,” said the Germany boss.A win over Brazil would boost German confidence following recent draws with top teams England (0-0), France (2-2) and now Spain.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Readers will include Evergreen students, staff, and faculty, veterans, and representatives from Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Naval Base Kitsap.********The memorial is an opportunity for the community to recognize the fallen service members and contemplate the profound sacrifices that military families and communities throughout the nation are continuing to make.The observance is being organized by The Veterans of Evergreen Transition and Success Team (VETS), an advisory group comprised of Evergreen staff, faculty and students.Musical accompaniment will include Jeff Parkhurst, snare drummer for the Artesian Rumble Arkestra and the Squaxin Island Drummers and Singers as an opening introduction.   Closing music will be performed by the Artesian Rumble Arkestra, Olympia’s own community street band, and Rona Yellowrobe Walsh, who will perform a combination of a Native American honor song and Taps on wooden flute to mark the conclusion of the reading.For more information related to veterans at The Evergreen State College, please visit: Veteran Information at Evergreenlast_img read more
