Dwayne Peel – Sale, Llanelli Scarlets and Wales

first_imgAndy PowellRowland Phillips Dwayne Peel concentrating a little too hardWe caught up with the Welsh scrum half before he was due to join Sale from Scarlets early in 2008. He chatted about the change of scenery, hitting the headlines, being the victim of many pranks and turning to golf after rugby. RUGBY WORLD: You’re joining Sale next season. How are you going to cope swapping Llanelli for the big-city lifestyle in Manchester?DWAYNE PEEL: It should be a good experience, a change of scenery. I’ve not lived outside Wales so it’ll be good to have a change, on and off the field.RW: At the World Cup, Mark Jones put a sheep in your hotel room. Have you got revenge yet?DP: Not yet. I’d better be quick, though, because time’s running out. I’ve only got a couple of months left at the Scarlets to get him back.RW: So what are you planning?DP: If I told you I’d have to kill you!RW: You’re well known for your pranks. Care to share any?DP: I’ve been quite quiet recently. I’m getting older now and I’m trying to keep my head down. Mark told you most of the ones I did, like cutting the crotch out of all his trousers and pants.RW: Why do you always target Mark?DP: He’s a soft target and continuously bites. I take it all in my stride. At the World Cup it was Matthew Rees and Alix Popham putting all the bikes and stuff in Mark’s room, but I got the blame. The sheep was an unprovoked attack.Jokers, Puppy woes and Deadliest Catch…RW: So who are the other jokers?DP: Robin McBryde was really good, but now he’s a coach he doesn’t really do anything. He was always playing about with people’s cars. He once parked mine on a roundabout.RW: If your house was on fire, what three things would you save?DP: My dog, Roco. He’s one now but is still a nightmare round the house, chewing things. He’s getting worse! I’d also save my laptop because it has all my pictures on it. And the Sky Plus box.RW: What do you record on Sky Plus?DP: I like documentaries. I watch them all the time. I really like Deadliest Catch on Discovery. It’s about fishing for lobster and crab in the Bering Sea.RW: What’s your pre-match routine?DP: It depends what time kick-off is, but I usually have a lie-in. Then I’ll watch a bit of TV, chill out and eat beans on toast.RW: What are the best and worst headlines you’ve seen about yourself? TAGS: Sale SharksScarlets DP: When I joined Sale, the South Wales Evening Post ran a story with a pic of me on the front page with a mini story about me leaving. The main article, though, had a massive headline saying ‘We Don’t Want Sex Pests Here’. The boys were saying that Sale fans had already made their feelings clear and when I went into the club the next day loads of copies had been pinned up.Vanilla Ice, Being an impatient driver and Future goals…RW: What’s your karaoke song?DP: Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. I only do it when asked, which is not very often.RW: Do you have any phobias?DP: Snakes, I hate them. I think I’d really freak out if I ever saw one.RW: What about your bugbears?DP: I live out in the country and people fly-tipping really bugs me. Why do it? I also hate roadworks and I can’t stand being in traffic – I get really impatient.RW: Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with?DP: The Rolling Stones – it would be brilliant for stories in there.RW: What superpower would you like?DP: Invisibility. I’d like to go into a big organisation like the CIA and see what went on, find out secrets.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?DP: I’d like to be a single-handicap golfer. At the moment I’m at 13 – it’s close but not close enough.RW: When did you last laugh?DP: I laugh every day.Check out his stats for WalesLearn more about Dwayne’s teammates at Wales…Ryan Jones LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Rebels ready for huge Crusaders challenge

first_img“Scans reveal the injury is minor, but he will miss this weekend’s game against the Crusaders at AAMI Park as a precaution,” said Hill. “He will be eased back into training over the next fortnight in readiness for our first Super Rugby fixture against the Waratahs at AAMI Park on March 2.”The Rebels’ coaching staff planned their pre-season trial game period around facing high quality opposition, and they don’t come much better than last year’s finalist. The Crusaders have named close to a full strength squad, and with their first game of the season only a week away, they will want to play well to ensure they hit the ground running come Round One.“It looks like they’ve picked close to a full strength side,” said Hill. “I’m not sure if all of their stars are playing, but even if they don’t their back up players are world class. It doesn’t matter what players the Crusaders put out you always come up against a quality team and that’s what we’ll get this weekend as well.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS GEELONG, AUSTRALIA – FEBRUARY 03: James O’Connor and Kurtley Beale of the Rebels look on before the Super Rugby trial match between the Melbourne Rebels and the Chiefs at Simonds Stadium on February 3, 2012 in Geelong, Australia. (Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images) Beale will sit out the final trail matchMelbourne Rebels will treat the third and final trial game of the pre-season program more like a Super Rugby game than he has for any of the other games so far this season.Coming up against the Crusaders at AAMI Park this Saturday night, the most successful Super Rugby team in the competition’s history, will be the ideal preparation for the Rebels’ first Super Rugby game of the season against the Waratahs in a fortnight’s time.“We’re approaching it a little more game-specific,” said Hill. “We haven’t settled on a team (for the Waratahs) but we’re very close, and we’re looking to give certain combinations longer time together on the field.“It’s our third trial and it will be our hardest trial as well. It will be our final test before we go into the season proper and will give us a good indication of where we are at in a number of aspects of our game.”While Hill will play as close to his best side as he can for the majority of this game, one man who won’t take his place in the team is new recruit Kurtley Beale. The fullback suffered a slight hamstring strain during Thursday morning’s training session and will be rested from this game. Starting XV:1. Rodney Blake2. Ged Robinson3. Tighthead Prop4.

Analysis: Charlotte Caslick shapes Australia’s gold medal-winning attack

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There can be no better case study for prospective players than her story. And anyway, these are lessons to take into any form of the game. Now to hope participation booms on the back of a thrilling Olympic Games.Graphics created from BBC footage Women’s sevens was showcased wonderfully at Rio 2016, with the craft of Charlotte Caslick inspiring Australia to the title. …and receives a pass behind the run of Cherry. McAlister does not buy the decoy line of Cherry though, and is able to pressurise Australia’s playmaker:Or at least, she would be if Caslick were not so conscious of space, perhaps thanks to her days in touch rugby. On a wrap-around play, it is very easy to drift across-field on receiving a pass, as indicated by the red line in the screenshot blow.This serves to cut down space and is easy for the defending side because the attack can be simply shepherded towards the nearest touchline. However, Caslick does not take a lateral route. Instead, she preserves space on the outside by straightening up and attacking McAlister’s right shoulder:On taking the pass from Quirk, who is looking for ways to support, Caslick steps off her right foot again……and attacks the line with energy and conviction, wrong-footing McAlister:Caslick ties up two defenders while a third, Goss, is impeded by the tackle area as Quirk arrives:Caslick turns her body in contact, giving herself a full view of Quirk.…before releasing an offload……that floats into her colleague’s path:Quirk is rewarded for her support and darts into the clear with Portia Woodman moving infield to what looks to be a certain score:Woodman actually does very well to close down the opportunity. However, Quirk is mindful of Ellia Green storming up outside of her and holds the ball in two hands:She chooses the moment to release a crisp, accurate pass……and, although Nathan-Wong may even have retreated to make the cover tackle, Woodman cannot resist. She sticks out an arm and knocks on:Referee Alhambra Nievas had no choice but to brandish a yellow card and Australia scored from the next play – a hammer-blow on the stroke of half-time that was rammed home shortly into the second period.Swerve ballThis final sequence demonstrates both the defensive nous of Australia and the versatility of Caslick – it was not just from the half-back that she influenced proceedings.That said, the score actually begins with a strong run from the Black Ferns’ Goss. She brushes past Caslick to cross the Australia 22:But Parry is close by and latches on……before using Goss’ bodyweight to bring her down……felling Goss with a judo throw of a tackle:Parry then rolls to her feetand gets over the ball despite the attentions of clearers Nathan-Wong and Ruby Tui. Mindful of conceding a penalty, she does not touch the ball with her hands……instead throwing a foot towards it – a tactic England have used to great effect under Eddie Jones – and kicking it clear. Note that Green has retreated to an onside position……and can therefore chase the loose ball on its route upfield. Mirroring their instinctive organisation against Spain, Australia’s three closest players are aware of their roles immediately:As Green stoops to pick up the ball skilfully, it is worth making a note of the time. Australia do not relinquish possession again until they have scored:Tui actually recovers brilliantly to tackle Green……but Green shows an impressive grasp of the laws, buying herself – and the supporting Cherry – a precious second by releasing the ball, getting back to her feet and picking it up again under close scrutiny from Nievas:With the ball secure, Caslick arrives to assume scrum-half responsibilities:As the clock shows, this next clip comes from two phases later in the same attack. Quirk plays scrum-half, passing to Caslick at first-receiver – the two interchanged superbly throughout the Games. New Zealand again seem to be numbered off well……but a short burst of acceleration from Caslick gets her outside Brazier, creating a three-on-two:Caslick waits for Gayle Broughton to step in before locating Cherry.Only a perfectly-timed intervention from Tui, who forces the ball onto the ground in a tackle on Cherry, stops a break down the left wing:When we pick up the same foray once more, the six New Zealand women have been defending for a continuous passage of 53 seconds. That amounts to a lung-sapping period in sevens, even without their one-player disadvantage.Reinforcing the versatility of Australia’s backs, this time Quirk finds Cherry, who in turn locates Caslick close to the 15-metre line. Pace and accuracy of passing means Australia have spanned the width of the pitch quickly.New Zealand cannot exert any pressure and must employ a ‘soft drift’ defensive pattern, effectively heading backwards in an attempt to ease their opponents towards the touchline:Again, there is a danger for the attacking side to drift in the same direction and run out of room. Again, Caslick takes it upon herself to straighten up. From the reverse angle, this red line shows a line of running that could kill the scoring opportunity:Caslick instead bounces back infield off her left foot, holding the ball in two hands and swerving against the grain:It would of course be hyperbolic to compare Caslick to Conrad Smith, but this balance and spatial awareness is undoubtedly reminiscent of how the 94-cap centre used to manufacture tries for the All Blacks.The ball goes back into one hand as Brazier is bypassed…… and then into two again as Nathan-Wong makes a desperate tackle attempt. As appears to be a fundamental principle of this Australia team – and, by association, of touch rugby as well – Cherry has followed her pass:Having halted the defensive slide of two defenders and drawn them in, Caslick turns her body right round, compelling Cherry to run towards the left touchline:Sure enough, Cherry takes, steps off her right foot instantly……and finds huge amounts of space:The try-scoring pass to Green is a very easy one:Australia’s march to a gold medal was fuelled by the practice of manufacturing space and moving the ball towards it. Caslick, arguably the chief architect of their achievement, and a number of her squadmates were approached by talent scouts that had been impressed by their touch rugby exploits. Question: What do rugby league rockstar Shaun Johnson, World Cup-winning All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder and Charlotte Caslick, catalyst of Australia women’s sevens triumph at the Olympic Games, share in common? Answer: All three excelled in touch rugby before shooting up the full-contact ranks.Plenty still sneer at the transitional form of the game. However, when contested keenly, it hones a variety of attributes. Johnson and Milner-Skudder have collected innumerable YouTube hits due to highlight reels of mesmerising footwork, but touch also encourages organisation, sharp handling, perceptive support lines and spatial awareness.For sheer romance, the dominant victory of Fiji’s irrepressible men in Rio de Janeiro was intoxicating. Leone Nakarawa and his ludicrously talented teammates will have captured the hearts and minds of many. However, the women’s tournament may provide rugby with a bigger breakthrough in terms of encouraging participation.Given the first chance to promote their sport on its Olympic return, the players delivered a compelling, high-quality event. When the dust settled, Australia were worthy champions. Here is a brief look at how Caslick shone as part of an excellent unit.Knowing roles and picking holesFewer players means more open space in sevens, which obviously stretches cardiovascular capacity. There is constant mental strain too. Positional constraints are far looser, meaning players must adopt different responsibilities and adapt on the job in a fluid manner.During the build-up to Australia’s third try in their quarter-final defeat of Spain, a dogged and tenacious outfit, such collective quick-thinking is in plain view. We begin with a scrum on Australia’s five-metre line.Caslick, an extremely versatile operator as highlighted later in this piece, starts in the scrum-half position from the set piece. Alicia Quirk, the second chief playmaker for Australia, stands directly behind the scrum:Tapping hooker Shannon Parry……Caslick puts the ball in and a clean strike meets it:Prop Chloe Dalton does well to control, protecting possession from Spain scrum-half Patricia Garcia, allowing Caslick to stoop……and locate Quirk:A reputation for fast, frantic exchanges does not mean that there is not a place for direct running in sevens. Sure enough, as Quirk arcs infield, Emilee Cherry cuts a narrow angle and launches an abrasive carry.Crucially, Cherry aims at a gap rather than actively seeking a collision. This increases the chances of a weak ‘arm tackle’, giving Cherry a better opportunity of either offloading or puncturing the gain-line.With two defenders hastily jamming together to halt the run, more Spanish players are likely to be committed to the subsequent breakdown as well:At this point, Australia’s cohesion really sticks out. This is only the first phase, but everyone is instinctively aware of their individual roles. Supporting Cherry, Quirk follows her pass – a recurring theme of this article – in anticipation of resourcing the breakdown.Parry and prop Sharni Williams circle beyond the ball to join Emma Tonegato as backline options on the the far side. They trust that Caslick will assume the role of scrum-half. Meanwhile, Dalton emerges from the scrum and stays put – an underrated facet of creating space – to ensure Australia have options on both sides of the ruck:Tellingly, Caslick glances at the blindside on reaching the ruck. However, Spain set up well. Including hooker Angela del Plan, not needed in the first tackle, three cover the openside. Two more stand on the blindside. Their two remaining players are the tackler and one other, free to compete on the floor:Under the watchful eye of referee Jessica Beard, Quirk clears Patricia Garcia as tackler Vanesa Rial rolls away. Caslick comes in at scrum-half, aided by Cherry’s diligent ball presentation……and moves the ball away again to Parry. Note Patricia Garcia, who contested at the previous ruck, and Berta Garcia, who was posted in the guard position on the blindside, curve back to the left to join the Spanish openside defence:A proactive press from Barbara Pla and del Plan on the wide outside then encourages Parry to cut back against the grain rather than force another pass. But again, she aims for a space rather than a face. Meanwhile, Caslick follows her pass as Quirk did before her:Maria Casado and Berta Garcia concertina towards one another to stop Parry, who makes 10 metres. Caslick hunts the ball-carrier while two more Australians, Quirk and Cherry, bounce up from the previous ruck. Cherry heads towards the action, with Quirk backing away to offer herself as an outlet from the next breakdown on the left:Patricia Garcia senses a turnover chance on the floor as Parry is felled by Berta Garcia and Casado……but, with Williams calling for a teammate to step in at scrum-half, Caslick swoops with a strong body position…and protects the ball. Patricia Garcia tries to slip around the outside to steal before Cherry arrives……but is told to back away by Beard:Cherry initially looks to locate Williams on her right, but swivels to her left after perhaps hearing a call:She hits Quirk, back in the game after clearing the first ruck of this attack, stretching the Spanish defence:Another pass gives Dalton some room to gallop. The spacing between Rial and Marina Bravo, who is moving close to top speed in an attempt to cover the outside, extends to form a glaring gap:Dalton takes the invitation, stepping infield off her left foot. Circled is Caslick, on her feet again and dropping back in readiness for the next phase:With Dalton careering over the gain-line through the double challenge of Rial and Bravo, Australia file into their roles once more.Quirk, the passer, follows the ball to become the clearer. Cherry sweeps across to play scrum-half again. Parry retreats, joining Williams and Tonegato as backline options for Caslick, who co-ordinates matters at first-receiver:Bravo is tempted to compete at the breakdown, but Quirk is accurate with the clean-out. As Cherry approaches the ball, Caslick keeps an eye on Spain’s defensive structure. Casado is in position quickly and evidently eager to press onto the openside:Sure enough, Casado gestures towards Caslick and is ready to hare up:When Cherry finds Caslick, Bravo must push herself away from the ruck and arc around to the left to connect with her teammate. This is the area of weakness in the Spain line.Further out, they actually have greater numbers – four to three. Should Australia attempt to pass the ball into midfield, Spain could easily crowd out the attacking team and force a turnover:Caslick sums up the situation and identifies where the space is brilliantly. On catching the ball, she steps off her right foot and back towards the ruck:Cherry has followed her pass, with Quirk not far behind her, and this industry – grafting back to makes themselves available to the carrier – helps fashion the try.Holding the ball in two hands, Caslick shapes to throw back inside and attacks the gap between Casado and Bravo, both of whom have over-chased and must slam on the brakes to change direction:Caslick chucks a dummy and Bravo buys it, drifting onto Cherry……and being turned inside out as Caslick slips the ball back into one hand, freeing the other in order to engage top sprinting speed:Casado cannot recover the ground and Caslick canters all the way through to dot down under the posts:Following this win over Spain, beating Canada brought Australia into the decider against old foes New Zealand. The match turned on one moment.Loop the loopThis attack also begins at a scrum, Caslick feeding……before sweeping around on the hook……and popping up the ball to Quirk. New Zealand appear very well organised. Captain and hooker Sarah Goss has already slipped from the scrum to join the line, while Tyla Nathan-Wong is harrying as well:Kayla McAlister rushes up in midfield to cut down Australia’s room but Quirk is nerveless. She takes the ball forward calmly. Note that Caslick is hunting the carrier again:Quirk dummies a wide pass to Cherry, which halts McAlister’s line-speed:Cherry then changes angle, charging into a short line. Kelly Brazier bites on Quirk at this point, with McAlister standing her ground.Caslick continues to circle…last_img read more

Former Chiefs wing Matt Jess embarks on Caribbean adventure with St Lucia women

first_imgWith rugby, life can take unexpected turns. Some of those turns may just drop you in the Caribbean.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest rugby news. Then he was asked out of the blue if he would like to lead the side to the big meet this weekend. He couldn’t say no.Jess, who has recently signed up as an assistant coach with Cornish Pirates and who still turns out occasionally for Taunton Titans in National 2 South, admits that he had very little prior knowledge of Caribbean rugby, but he has been impressed with the desire and willingness to attack and how his job is now to add some finer skills to their play, adding: “If you can bolt on certain skillsets – drawing the defender and putting someone away – automatically you will get a very, very destructive team. If they continue to work on their skillsets, I think they’ll be a hell of a force, not only in the Caribbean but also around the world.”Jess acknowledges that the competition over the weekend should be stiff and he is aware others are rated higher. And yet he is excited about the team’s future.Showing them how it’s done: Jess goes to ground“Our team manager was telling me about the favourites,” he says. “But I’m going to talk to them and say, ‘you don’t lose before a game is finished.’ We’re not just turning up to play.“Favourites can be favourites, underdogs can be underdogs but I want them to go in with the hunger and play with their heart and the results will look after themselves.“It will be tough for the girls over the two days, but they have a good enough squad to set a good precedent. And the thing is, they went to Guadalupe a couple of months back and tore teams to shreds. So hopefully they can really push on from that.” TAGS: Exeter Chiefs The sevens competition in the Cayman Islands offers a chance to step closer to Olympic qualification Former Chiefs wing Matt Jess embarks on Caribbean adventure with St Lucia womenA whirlwind set of events has sent former Exeter Chiefs wing Matt Jess out to the Cayman Islands to help St Lucia women’s sevens push for an Olympic dream this weekend.This side will compete in the 2019 RF Group RAN Sevens in Grand Cayman over Saturday and Sunday, with the top two teams in the competition being sent to compete for a spot in the 2020 Summer Olympic Games at next year’s global repechage.Asked how this all came about, Jess proclaims “Oh mate!” just before boarding a flight to the Caribbean. He goes on to explain his introduction: “I was sat at home in the kitchen, planning a few local projects, and I got a call from (ex-Chiefs lock) Chris Bentley.“He said their was a former sponsor of Exeter– Simon and Mo from BoulterBowen – who had been on holiday in St Lucia and got chatting to this group of girls. They found out they played for St Lucia women.“They looked into getting some help out there (for the team). They have a plan in place there, but they wanted a bit more experience and someone to go in there and show them what to do.“Within three hours of talking to them I got a plane ticket emailed through from Simon and Mo!Talking to the team: Training in the sun“I went over to St Lucia for five days and did three sessions with the girls, which was cracking. They were a really good bunch. It grounded me a bit – what we have over here compared to what they have over there is on a completely different scale – but I had an unbelievable time.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In with the team: Jess and the squad take a snap under the lights last_img read more

Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round One

first_img Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round OneThe first round of the 2020 Six Nations saw a host of players deliver strong displays and Sam Tremlett has been tasked with putting them into a Round One Team of the Weekend.In terms of results, Wales pulled off a solid victory against Italy, Ireland narrowly saw off Scotland and finally England got thoroughly outplayed by the French.Who made it into your XV? Is there someone we have missed? Don’t hesitate to let us know through our social media channels.Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round One1. Lisa Arricastre (France Women) All the latest news on players injured throughout… There were plenty of strong performances in the first round of the 2020 Six Nations, so Sam Tremlett faced a tricky task selecting a Team of the Weekend. Who makes the cut? Making her 70th appearance, Arricastre was part of a dominant French scrum that saw the team in blue earn several penalties against England.2. Rob Herring (Ireland)Nine From Nine: Herring was perfect in his line out throwing (Getty Images)Strong carrying, a tackling machine, and a performance that saw him land nine line outs from nine attempts, Herring was imperious against the Scots.3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)World Class: Furlong was at his best against Scotland (Getty Images)Zander Ferguson deserves a mention after making 15 tackles but Furlong gets the nod here because of his fine performance that results in him being atop the list of the best tight-heads in the world.4. Bernard Le Roux (France)Work Horse: Le Roux did a lot of the hard work at the Stade de France (Getty Images)The man who made the most tackles (22) of anyone during the weekend, Le Roux was one of several French forwards who physically outmatched the English.5. James Ryan (Ireland)Ahead Of His Years: Ryan continues to get better and better despite his young age (Getty Images)A lot has been made of Ryan of late and it is easy to see why. He is just 23 years-old and yet shows the work ethic, class and experience of a player a decade older. 17 tackles, 14 carries and six line out throws provide statistics to back up his selection.6. CJ Stander (Ireland)MoM: Stander rightly secured a man of the match award against Scotland (Getty Images)One of his finest performances in a green shirt, Stander quite rightly earned the man of the match award. His carrying and tackling was excellent but his finest moments came in two pivotal turnovers that halted Scottish momentum just as the game could swing either way.7. Charles Ollivon (France) Six Nations Table 2021 Six Nations Table 2021 9. Antoine Dupont (France)Constant Menace: Dupont was a constant threat for England (Getty Images)You got the sense that the English defence were constantly worrying about Dupont and his ability to create havoc. Rightly so too because he beat seven defenders, made two clean line-breaks and played a key role in the third French try with a slaloming run. Additionally his kicking and passing were superb.10. Jonathan Sexton (Ireland)Match Winner: Sexton scored all of Ireland’s points (Getty Images)Sexton could have been forgiven for showing some rust in the Irish opener against Scotland. That wasn’t the case though as he scored all 19 points on the day to lead the team to victory.11. Josh Adams (Wales)Triple Threat: Adams scored three tries against Italy (Getty Images)Poor Vincent Rattez. He was excellent against England however we could not ignore a hat-trick from arguably the best winger in the world right now. He may not have been on the ball that regularly but once again he showed his finishing ability, taking all three well.12. Sam Johnson (Scotland)Bright Spark: Johnson tested the Irish midfield (Getty Images)Aside from the silly penalty on Andrew Conway, Johnson was a bright spark for Scotland with his physicality and running lines. He showed he can create something out of nothing too as he only made eight carries and yet ran for over 60 metres.13. Emily Scarratt (England Women)Big Match Player: Scarratt always ups her game for the big moments (Getty Images)England may have been second best for much of the contest in Pau, but Scarratt showed her class with the boot and scored a huge try to ensure a 19-13 victory.14. Jonny May (England)Mixed Bag: It was an up-and-down performance from May (Getty Images)He may have failed to play to the whistle which resulted in a French try, but May made up for it with two moments of individual brilliance that gave the English some form of hope.15. Anthony Bouthier (France)First Cap: Bouthier showed no nerves in his debut (Getty Images)Unlike his fellow debutant George Furbank for England, Bouthier enjoyed a proficient afternoon at the back of the French line. Solid under the high-ball and occasionally linking up well with the wings, he showed his ability on the big stage. His kick which began its journey within his own 5-metre line, and ended up deep in the English 22 was a particular high point. 2021 Six Nations Injuries Update Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Who is leading the way in the Six… Six Nations Fixtures 2022 The 2022 Six Nations… 2021 Six Nations Injuries Update Expand Expand Born Leader: In his first game as captain, Ollivon scored twice (Getty Images)Justin Tipuric played very well as did Josh Van der Flier but we have gone with the French captain here. Two tries, eight line-out receptions, double digit tackles and leading the French to victory against the English is as good as it gets.8. Gregory Alldritt (France)Tireless: Alldritt seemed as if he was all over the pitch (Getty Images)France’s best player on the day, Alldritt is just 22 years-old which is scary as Les Bleus seek to turn over a new leaf under Fabien Galthie. The number eight had 12 carries, 16 tackles and was a frequent menace at the breakdown.

Jenni perdió su vida en un accidente aéreo y Victoria fue víctima de un joven desquiciado mentalmente en Newtown, Connecticut). En ambos casos se ha oído la antigua frase “era la voluntad de Dios”. Respetuosamente hay que decir que esa es una mala teología. El Dios de los cristianos es un dios de amor y no inflige dolor o sufrimiento a sus hijos. Muchas de las cosas que pasan son producto de la maldad, el descuido, la falta de experiencia y cosas por el estilo. No podemos hacer a Dios culpable por la muerte de niños inocentes o adultos útiles y queridos. Mejor es dar un abrazo sincero que culpar al Dios de amor, de paz y de concordia que envió a su Hijo para salvarnos del mal y del pecado.La reciente masacre ha puesto sobre el tapete el antiguo reclamo del control de armas. El alcalde de Nueva York, Michael Bloomberg, ha vuelto a recriminar al presidente Barack Obama por su falta de acción sobre este urgente asunto. En Miami el obispo episcopal Leo Frade dijo en una nota a la prensa que “basta ya” de tragedias, que hay que legislar sobre el control de armas antes que sean muchos más los que perezcan.Hay un movimiento en Arizona presidido por Ken Rineer de la Asociación de Dueños de Armas que propone que se permita a maestros y oficiales de las escuelas portar armas de fuego en su trabajo.Diez cristianos fueron degollados la semana pasada por presuntos islamistas en el barrio cristiano de la localidad nigeriana de Chibok, al norte del país.

El estudio comenzó en 1974.Blake Page, 24, un cadete de la Academia Militar del Ejército de Estados Unidos en West Point, Nueva York, ha renunciado a sus estudios cuatro meses antes de su graduación aduciendo que “no quiere ser parte de una cultura que promueve oraciones y actividades religiosas e irrespeta a los cadetes que no tienen inclinación religiosa”.

En Caracas se informó que la recuperación es “lenta, pero progresiva”. Hasta el momento no ha habido un informe médico oficial y por eso abundan los rumores. Observadores políticos opinan que tanto la oposición como el oficialismo están “carentes de líderes” y que es de esperarse una seria lucha de poder en ambos campos en los próximos meses.

La Iglesia Episcopal ayuda a refugiados iraquíes a encontrar nueva…

first_img Rector Collierville, TN Rector Belleville, IL Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service] Todas las semanas, unos centenares de cristianos iraquíes se reúnen en el norte de París para celebrar su culto. Es una reunión agridulce para ellos. Han salvado sus vidas, pero los acontecimientos de los últimos 10 años les han impuesto el exilio. Muchos han perdido a familiares cercanos y a amigos en la sangrienta guerra de Irak y en la oleada de terrorismo que le sucedió.“Hay cerca de un millón de cristianos iraquíes que salieron de Irak, y 1.300 de ellos vinieron a Francia”, dice Pierre Whalon, obispo de la Convocación de las Iglesias Episcopales en Europa. “Es una gota en el océano, pero son 1.300 vidas inocentes y únicas que son sagradas para Dios. ¿Cómo puede uno decir que no a eso? Si uno puede hacer algo, debe hacerlo”.En 2007, cuando los cristianos iraquíes enfrentaban una creciente persecución por cuenta de su fe, Whalon y el empresario iraquí Elish Yako fundaron la Asociación de Ayuda a las Minorías Orientales [Association d’Entraide aux Minorités d’Orient] para ayudar al gobierno francés a identificar a candidatos idóneos para encontrar refugio. La asociación también ha ayudado a los refugiados [a resolver] sus problemas administrativos y de integración.“La posición oficial del Vaticano es que los cristianos deberían quedarse en el Oriente Medio y yo estoy totalmente de acuerdo con eso; sin duda que deberían quedarse allí”, dijo Whalon. “Pero no pueden quedarse allí si los matan”.Muchos de los refugiados son miembros de la Iglesia Católica Caldea, que data del siglo I, cuando la región se llamaba Babilonia. Ellos celebran su culto parcialmente en árabe y parcialmente en arameo, el idioma que habló Jesús.“Para ellos”, dice Yako, “lo más importante es su libertad… y practicar su religión sin temor de terroristas y [de alguien] que secuestre a sus hijos”.Yako se mantiene en contacto regular con todas las familias que la asociación ha ayudado a reasentar.Una familia de cuatro —madre, padre, hijo e hija— vive a unos 28 kilómetros de París en dirección sur. Se mudaron a Francia en 2009 luego de recibir repetidas amenazas de muerte. Los hijos le dijeron a Episcopal News Service que, si bien los primeros dos años fueron difíciles por ser una nueva vida para ellos, se sienten finalmente felices de practicar su religión y se enorgullecen de ello.El hijo varón, Samir, de 26 años, contó cómo un primo de su padre y cinco de sus propios amigos murieron en explosiones terroristas. “Ya sabes, nos entristecía”, explicó él, “Pero decíamos algo así como ‘Vale, muy bien, así es Irak’, ¿suponte? ‘Es Irak, es normal’”.Mientras visitaba a la familia hace poco, Whalon dijo: “Esta gente debería estar todavía en Irak. Aquí tienes una muchacha que quiere ser cirujana. Si se hubiera quedado en Irak y hubiera estudiado normalmente, estaría en camino de convertirse en cirujana. Ahora tiene que reciclarse en Francia.“Muchos de ellos tienen casas propias. Nunca las quisieron dejar. Las han arrendado; esperan volver” añadió Whalon. “Por supuesto, hoy día la situación es imposible. Así, pues, queremos que los cristianos se queden [en Irak], pero los queremos vivos”.“Esta familia no estaría aquí, no estarían en la tierra, si no los hubieran rescatado”.Desafortunadamente para los cristianos que aún quedan en Irak, las puertas de los servicios de inmigración francés se cerraron recientemente, dijo Whalon. Mientras cada vez más cristianos iraquíes enfrentan persecución y muerte en su patria, hay poca esperanza de que Francia les ofrezca refugio.“Nuestro sistema para los refugiados políticos en Estados Unidos y en Francia—ambos sistemas— están completamente saturados, y el personal está recargado de trabajo y el sistema está sobregirado de presupuesto. Cuesta muchísimo dinero aceptar a las personas y ofrecerles una nueva vida. En consecuencia, estoy realmente preocupado”, afirmó Whalon.“Los que pueden vivir para contarlo, son testigos del poder de Dios. Dice mucho del valor de lo que hacemos y de lo que somos en el mundo”.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.
