first_img By Paul WilliamsWhy can’t our southern hemisphere coaches coach the southern hemisphere way?We, in the northern hemisphere, want to play rugby like the southern hemisphere. The quality of play in this year’s RBS 6 Nations has received a lot of negative reaction in the media, yet all of the home nations are coached by gents from south of the equator.It is an unusual situation. Is it that Warren Gatland, Joe Schmidt, Vern Cotter and Eddie Jones can’t really be considered ‘modern’ southern hemisphere coaches? Schmidt hasn’t coached Down South since 2007, Cotter since 2006, and Gatland since 2007. Eddie Jones is the most recent to have coached in the southern hemisphere ‘style’, even though Japan is north of the Tropic of Cancer. Jones, to his credit, is the only coach in this year’s Six Nations to have played genuine footballers at ten and 12.Is the reality that when these four coaches, particularly Gatland, Schmidt and Cotter, were actually plying their trade in the southern hemisphere, rugby was a different game? Before the change to the breakdown laws, rugby was very much a kicking game where it was safer to play without the ball than with it. Or is it that all four have ventured north and simply not found the players that are able to play the southern hemisphere game? Either way, it’s weird.Jaguares’ instant impactSomeone has given the Jaguares the cheat codes to Super Rugby. That can be the only explanation. Their impact on the opening weekend was remarkable. It would be newsworthy if the Jaguares had merely beaten the Cheetahs – which they did 34-33. The Jaguares would have garnered even more attention if they’d beaten the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein – which they did. The Jaguares would have lit up Twitter if they had come back from 24-3 down – which they did.Easy on the eye: The Jaguares, under charismatic captain Agustín Creevy, made a stunning debut (Pic: AFP)But the reason, above all, to applaud the Jaguares is that they did it in true Super Rugby fashion. This victory wasn’t sneaked with rolling mauls and penalty kicks – it was achieved with 80-metre breaks and Agustín Creevy, the Pumas hooker and captain, delivering offloads so silky that the silkworms left a trail on the ball.The Jaguares beat 45 defenders, made 14 clean line breaks and had a wing and a centre who carried more than 140 metres each. They will have harder games to come, and this opening victory may have been a blip – but what a beautiful blip.Super Rugby taking all the right risksSuper Rugby is a wonderfully challenging brand – in every sense. Its attitude to risk, and the benefits of that risk, should be admired. This mindset is obvious in the style of rugby played in that league. Where even combining the relatively reserved rugby of South Africa, the product nets out with more offloads, running metres and tries than a northern hemisphere supporter can comprehend.Lots of noise: Stormers fans celebrate a try in a competition that embraces risk – on and off the fieldBut this expansive attitude extends beyond the field and into the boardroom. Whilst in Wales some are still muttering about the lack of rugby 15 miles north of Cardiff, Super Rugby has flicked its tentacles over to Argentina and Japan. As with everything in Super Rugby the expansive attitude with the ball, or the ballpoint pen, may not always work. But the overall ethos does, and has to be applauded. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Northern stodge: Wales have lacked sparkle under Warren Gatland – despite the coach’s New Zealand roots center_img Test rugby no longer the pinnacle for French playersLet’s face it, French international players no longer see playing for France as the pinnacle. And who can blame them? The reality of Test rugby is that it needs to be the elite point of a player’s career. Not only the environment in which they can reach their peak on-field performance, but the point at which they reach their peak earnings – through fees, sponsorship or public appearances.Test rugby has always been the juncture from which players achieve this – in every other Tier One nation it is still thus. But French rugby has passed that point. French players no longer need to play for their country to hit their maximum earnings, fame and self-fulfilment.French test: Do players like Toulon’s Maxime Mermoz see club or country as the pinnacle? (Pic: AFP/Getty)French rugby has become English football, where playing for your country is a step down. A step where you have to play for a manager that you don’t know, with players you have little rapport with, in a tournament that has no impact on your life. French Test rugby is in a mess.Welsh regions recruiting shrewdlyFebruary saw the Welsh regions continue a new trend in recruiting overseas names. The regions no longer employ players that merely deliver column inches, they bring in players that deliver performances.The Ospreys’ recruitment of Kieron Fonotia is a perfect example. Fonotia isn’t an All Black superstar like Justin Marshall. He’s not even a Super Rugby star, despite being a regular starter for the Crusaders last season, and having started their first game of this Super Rugby season.But Fonotia is exactly what the Ospreys require. A rock-solid option at centre/wing who will play his guts out all season – in exactly the same way that Hadleigh Parkes has for the Scarlets. The reality is that the second- and third-choice players in New Zealand Super Rugby, and first-choice players in the ITM Cup, are hugely capable individuals. And Welsh rugby is shrewdly recruiting them.Class act: The Crusaders’ Kieron Fonotia is no celebrity but will do a great job for the Ospreys (Pic: Getty)For the latest Rugby World magazine subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

Bonus points are not awarded in the knockout stages. If a match is drawn in the knockout stages, the following procedure applies to determine a winner:Extra-time of ten minutes each way (with an interval of five minutes).If scores are still tied after normal extra-time, there will be ‘sudden death’. This period lasts a maximum of ten minutes and the first team to score any points will be declared the winner.If scores are still tied after sudden death, there will be a kicking competition. Five players who were on the field at the completion of the sudden death period will be nominated to take part in the place-kicking competition, where they have to kick from three areas on the 22m line – directly in front of the posts, on the 15m line to the left of the posts and on the 15m line to the right of the posts. A player from each team takes it in turns to kick, moving between the different positions, and the winner is the team with the most successful kicks after five attempts. If there are an equal number of successful kicks after five attempts, the competition moves into a sudden death basis until one team has more successful kicks than the other from the same number of attempts.While bonus points have been used in domestic club competitions and major tournaments like the World Cup for many years, they were not implemented in the Six Nations until 2017.The Top 14 runs a different bonus-point system, where teams are only awarded a try bonus point if they score three or more tries than the opposition and lose by five points or fewer. In Super Rugby, bonus points are awarded for a loss between one and seven points or scoring three or more tries than the opposition.Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.

We hail your efforts in taking the issue of freedom of information a step further than the Freedom of Information laws of 1982. As you rightly pointed out, government information culture worldwide is changing rapidly and Australia’s legislation has lagged behind the world’s best practice, as it allowed ministers to make blanket and unreviewable decisions to refuse information. We therefore strongly believe that your efforts will bring a great contribution to members of the press, researchers and advocates- in their performance in democratic function of disseminating information and ideas to the public. More broadly, it is in the interests of all citizens that there be a culture of transparency and free flow of information in government. We applaud your ambition for Australians to be able to reap the democratic social and economic benefits that can come when government information is set free. As a result, our organisation urges the Australian Government to expedite the passage of this legislation in the upcoming session of Parliament so that this important work is not wasted in the event of a change of government at the upcoming federal election. This historical step forward is in the interest of all Australian citizens and should be regarded as above political allegiances. Likewise, If you think it would be useful, Reporters Without Borders could publicly stress the importance of this bill to all members of the Austrian parliament.

first_img News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts April 16, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Proposed law threatens press freedom Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) said today it was concerned about a plan to prosecute anyone, especially journalists, who publicly criticised Papua New Guinea or its government. An Australian and a Papua New Guinean have already been summoned by a parliamentary committee for criticising the country in remarks that appeared in the Australian press.The proposed law, announced by the committee on 3 April, would violate the freedom of expression and press freedom clauses of the national constitution, said the organisation, which urged Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare to speak out against the proposal. It also called for legal action against the two summoned critics to be dropped.The two men – Australian businessman Rod Mitchell and economist Mike Manning, a naturalised Papua New Guinean – appeared before the Permanent Parliamentary Privileges Committee on 3 April.In an article in the daily paper The Australian headed “PNG, On the brink,” Manning, who heads the Papua New Guinea Institute for National Affairs, was quoted as saying the country was very corrupt. Mitchell, who runs a pension fund, was quoted in several Australian papers as criticising corruption.The committee’s proposed law would also punish those who made remarks allegedly tarnishing the dignity or integrity of parliament. Committee chairman Nick Kuman said it would amend existing laws to provide “effective and justifiable means to deter critics who persistently and knowingly publish damaging articles.””This is the most frightening thing I’ve seen in my career as a journalist,” said Bob Howarth, publisher of the PNG daily paper the Post-Courier.The government’s position on the proposal is unclear. A spokeswoman for Somare said on 6 April that the government did not necessarily agree with it. But she also warned that the media had to show responsibility by not publishing negative news about the country.

first_imgFamily Photo via Atty Michael Winkleman(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — The grandfather who was with his 18-month-old granddaughter when she fatally fell from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship has been arrested and charged with negligent homicide, the Puerto Rico Department of Justice announced.An island judge imposed a bond of $80,000 Monday for 51-year-old Salvatore Anello. His preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 20. The PR Department of Justice confirmed to ABC News that the grandfather has been released on bond.Chloe Wiegand was traveling with her grandparents on the cruise ship on July 7, when Anello put her on a wood railing in front of a wall of glass windows. Chloe went to bang on one of the windows, according to family attorney Michael Winkleman, but it was open and she was quickly “gone.”Since the incident, the family has maintained that the cruise line is at fault. Winkleman told ABC News that they are still waiting to see closed-circuit TV footage of the incident.“These criminal charges are pouring salt on the open wounds of this grieving family. Clearly, this was a tragic accident and the family’s singular goal remains for something like this to never happen again. Had the cruise lines simply followed proper safety guidelines for windows, this accident likely would never have happened,” Winkleman said in an interview with ABC News. “Really for them, this is really about Chloe. It’s not about anything else other than Chloe – it’s all about raising awareness so that a tragedy like this doesn’t happen again.”Winkleman said this charge is an overreach and amounts to “ultimately,” a criminal misdemeanor.“Why are you going to charge him with a misdemeanor when you know he’s already been through such a terrible trauma? Everybody on earth agrees this was an accident, everybody knows there was no intent involved, and it sort of begs the question why – I don’t know what the answer is but I have some theories – unfortunately it’s really just pouring salt on the open wounds of this family,” he said.The Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas cruise ship was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico, at the time of the accident, according to the Puerto Rico Department of Public Safety. The cruise line has had little to say about the accident.“This was a tragic incident, and out of respect for the family’s privacy, we refer you to authorities for further comment,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement Monday.Chloe was the daughter of a South Bend, Indiana, police officer, Alan Wiegand. On Monday, the Fraternal Order of Police in South Bend strongly criticized the charges against Anello and said they should be dropped.“The charges filed in Puerto Rico today are appalling and do nothing but revictimize a family who experienced a horrific loss,” Harvey Mills, South Bend FOP President said in a statement. “Based on the facts, it sounds like the negligence in this tragedy came from the cruise ship, not the family. The South Bend FOP stands in support of Officer Alan Wiegand and his family and urges Puerto Rican authorities to drop these unnecessary charges.”Mills’ organization previously raised money to help the family pay for Chloe’s funeral and said Monday that any future money raised would go toward the legal defense for Chloe’s grandfather.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
