Argentina get their just desserts – Blog

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Argentina will be the fourth nation in the revamped Tri-NationsAfter years of hard work and toil Argentina have finally been rewarded for their improvement, writes Dan Grose. Their additional spot in a revamped Tri Nations is nothing more than they deserve, and will ultimately benefit the world game as a whole.For many years The Pumas were often mentioned in the same bracket as Italy; a plucky and improving side with the potential to have a bright future. Yet, whilst the Italians were rewarded with a place in a rebranded Six Nations, the arguably stronger Argentinians were still without a regular stage on which to test themselves.When considering their vast improvement in recent seasons, this fact was even more baffling and has since been rightly rectified.Their performances at last month’s Rugby World Cup demonstrated ability and character, with both England and New Zealand able to testify to how hard they can be to break down. Yet despite being robust and extremely physical, they also have the ability to play the exciting brand of rugby associated with the Southern Hemisphere.Players such as Gonzalo Tiesi and Horacio Agulla are providing attacking flair to complement their warring forwards, with longstanding names Felipe Contepomi and Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe providing leadership to a well-balanced team. Whilst there are still creases to be ironed out, there are now the foundations of a talented squad. The Rugby Championship – Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa The All Blacks were given an almighty scare in the World Cup Quarter Finals, and will no doubt know what to expect from Argentina in future. The new Rugby Championship will pit the four teams against each other in an expanded twelve game schedule, and gets underway in earnest next August.Whatever happens over the course of the tournament, The Pumas can feel proud that, after years of hard work, they are finally playing with the big boys. Indeed their IRB World Ranking speaks for itself. Argentina now lie seventh after their successful World Cup campaign, behind only the Tri Nations teams and France, England and Ireland respectively. New competitors and former World Champions South Africa sit only three places ahead of them, an encouraging sign indeed.Their surge up the rankings is one mirrored by other developing rugby nations, and justified in their own World Cup performances. The IRB top twenty includes the likes of Romania, Japan and Georgia, who showed great resilience in the face of much stronger opposition despite some harsh score lines. Argentina’s success and subsequent reward should work as an incentive for these teams, showing them just what is possible with continued hard work.And such tales of success are ones that ensure International Rugby will have a bright future. Argentina’s story is one that rewards ambition, albeit eventually, with a formula that will remain true for any team with the desire and dedication to improve. Higher standards of competition will see the game evolve both technically and as a spectacle, something to please everyone from player to supporterlast_img read more

The most dominant club rugby teams of all time

first_img The most dominant club rugby teams of all timeIt really was no surprise to see the Crusaders holding yet another piece of silverware last weekend. The Blues may have threatened in the early rounds but, led by the virtuoso conducting of Richie Mo’unga, the Christchurch men added the Super Rugby Aotearoa trophy to three successive Super Rugby titles.Are they the most dominant club side of all time? Well, this Crusaders squad haven’t finished writing their legacy – but here are ten sides whose supremacy in their respective competitions may elevate them into the conversation…10. Toshiba Brave Lupus (2004-10)The men from Tokyo may have struggled more recently in the Japanese Top League, but it was a different story a decade ago. They won five of the six tournaments between 2004 and 2010, only failing to win in 2007-08 when their neighbours in Fuchu, Suntory Sungoliath, won the crown. In that six-year time period, they only lost 11 games.Fans’ favourite: Japan’s Hitoshi Ono signs autographs (Getty Images)The key figure in their rise was coach Masahiro Kunda, who captained Japan in the 1995 World Cup, while they also had second-row Hitoshi Ono, the national team’s most-capped player, in their ranks.Criticised by some for their reliance on the maul to score tries (Rob Baxter’s possible inspiration!) Kunda’s sides nevertheless set the gold standard for Japanese forward play.9. Saracens (2014-19)After losing tight finals to both Northampton and Toulon in 2013-14, Saracens could have disappeared back into the pack of English club rugby. Instead they would win four Premiership titles and three Champions Cup trophies in the next five years.Led by the steadiness of Mark McCall and with the famed academy class of 2008, the big-game experience of their squad has made them near-unbeatable in knockout rugby. The side everyone loves to hate – a feature of teams on this list – Owen Farrell’s men seem to have come to the end of an era following their relegation to the Championship.Was their dominance due to salary cap breaches or their famous culture? We’ll see when they make it back to the Premiership.8. Llanelli (1972-76)‘The Day the Pubs Ran Dry’,  31 October 1972, sealed Llanelli’s place in Welsh rugby folklore. A 9-3 win over the touring All Blacks is one of the most famous results in touring history, but it was no flash in the pan for this side.Coached by legendary Lions coach Carwyn James, the side won four successive Welsh Cups between 1973 and 1976, and boasted Phil Bennett at stand-off. As if that wasn’t enough, Llanelli also had Derek Quinnell, Delme Thomas and JJ Williams  in their ranks.Let it be known, they say, the golden years of Welsh rugby were forged in West Wales.7. Toulon (2012-15)The names roll off the tongue: Jonny Wilkinson, Bryan Habana, Matt Giteau, Carl Hayman, Bakkies Botha, Juan Smith… I could go on.They may have won only a single Top 14 in this time span, but they saved their best for the Champions Cup – the only side to ever be crowned European champions three times in a row. And what moments there were in those finals – Delon Armitage’s try, Wilkinson’s (second-greatest) drop-goal.Dive time: Toulon’s Delon Armitage scores in the 2013 Heineken Cup final (Getty Images)They may have been unpopular for their dearth of home-grown talent and the wild actions of Mourad Boudjellal, but they were brilliant on the continental stage.6. Bath (1984-96)Bath’s dominance predates professionalism, but Jack Rowell’s side seemed to pre-empt this shift. They won the English top flight six times in eight years and lifted the RFU Knockout Cup ten times in 13 years, doing the double four times.Silver service: Bath lift the Pikington Cup in 1994 (Getty Images)A tough forward pack of Victor Ubogu, Gareth Chilcott and Andy Robinson rivalled any club side in the set-piece, but their true brilliance came from behind the scrum. The attacking duo of Jeremy Guscott and Stuart Barnes matched the mercurial to the merciless, while players such as Mike Catt, Phil de Glanville and Simon Halliday brought more international experience.5. Hawick (1973-87) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I hear you saying that the club from the borders are an odd choice – now best known as the birthplace of Scotland captain Stuart Hogg – but they have a long, proud and illustrious history.The Scottish Premiership was founded in 1973 and Hawick would win the first five titles on the spin, taking the trophy home in ten of the first 14 years.Lift-off: Alan Tomes wins a lineout in Lions training in 1980 (Getty Images)A key part of the exciting Scottish sides of the 1980s, Mansfield Park (not the Jane Austen novel) has seen Colin Deans, Tony Stanger and Alan Tomes tread its turf. The length of their dominance is rivalled by only a couple of other clubs.4. Beziers (1971-84)Like Hawick, ten titles in 14 years for the fearsome men from Occitanie in the South of France. Known for sheer brutality, the names Michel Palmie, Alain Esteve, Armand Vaquerin and Alain Paco provoked a chill sweat in visiting teams in the 1970s.Bobby Windsor, named the hardest man in Welsh rugby by Wales Online, named Palmie and Esteve as his toughest opponents, saying: “If you went to ground with them, it was like going through a combine harvester.”Once regular French champions, this sleeping giant is now struggling in the ProD2.3. Toulouse (1994-2001)The most storied club in France, then and now, taking home six French championships and a European Cup in this period. Their mid-2000s Heineken Cup exploits could arguably have propelled them onto this list too.Thomas Castaignede, Philippe Carbonneau, Alain Penaud and Emile Ntamack starred in the back-line, while the pack contained their fair share of hard men, chief amongst them Fabien Pelous, who was later joined by a young William Servat.Their 21-18 win over Cardiff in the 1996 Heineken Cup final thanks to an extra-time Christophe Deylaud penalty was a classic encounter – I dare you not to wince at their physicality.2. Leicester (1998-2002)Many of these teams seem to be fundamentally tough. Leicester are no exception, tramping around the Midlands resplendent in inch-long studs.Known as a forward factory, players like Martin Johnson, Neil Back, Ben Kay and Lewis Moody were a key part of England’s 2003 World Cup success. The national team’s winning culture (and some would argue style of play) was shaped in the muddy five-metre channels of Welford Road.Tigers’ roar: Martin Johnson leads Leicester’s celebrations in 1999 (Getty Images)They won the league four years in a row between 1999 and 2002, an unsurpassed record in English rugby, and supplement their heaving trophy cabinet with back-to-back European Cups in 2001 and 2002.1. Crusaders (1998-2006)Despite all these competing claims from the northern hemisphere, the crown of rugby’s most dominant club team is bound to a southern hemisphere squad. With an honourable mention to the Western Province team who took home five successive Currie Cups between 1982 and 1986, those pesky Crusaders reign supreme again.They won six Super Rugby titles in a nine-year period between 1998 and 2006, losing in the final on another two occasions. In all fairness, not many opposing teams can compete with a smooth transition at fly-half from Andrew Mehrtens to Dan Carter. They also had Richie McCaw. And Aaron Mauger. And Justin Marshall.In 2002 they went undefeated, beating fellow high-flyers the Waratahs 96-19, and then they backed up that season by reaching another four straight finals.And now, with an entirely new squad, they’ve got another stack of trophies to their name.

The Rt. Rev. Andrew M.L. Dietsche joins Church Investment Group…

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Posted Feb 28, 2018 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Director of Music Morristown, NJ Press Release Service The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Albany, NY Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit a Press Release Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Tampa, FL [Church Investment Group] The Church Investment Group welcomes the Rt. Rev. Andrew M.L. Dietsche, Episcopal Diocese of New York, to its Board of Directors. An advocate for addressing climate change as well as ethical investing, Bishop Dietsche joined the board to help further its mission of encouraging environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing so that Episcopal organizations can join together in shared faith and values while realizing the benefits of scale in investing.Speaking about the Episcopal Diocese of New York’s, as well as his own, commitment to taking action related to climate change, Bishop Dietsche said, “We are confident that if we don’t take active steps in this area, the time will arrive when young people seeking to come to know God and to know God more fully will no longer see our churches as sacred spaces. We are equally adamant that they must and are to that end determined to make our churches places that are unmistakable marks of our commitment to rejoining the world in a more sustainable way.”Bishop Dietsche was one of the 17 Anglican bishops from across the world who issued a “Call to Urgent Action for Climate Change” at The World is Our Host conference in South Africa in 2015. The bishops wrote that “the climate change crisis is the most urgent moral issue of our day.” In November of that year, the Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of New York urged the fiduciary bodies of all Episcopal institutions in the Diocese to consider adopting or strengthening ethical investment guidelines and divesting from fossil fuel companies, especially coal companies. In response, the Investment Committee of the Diocese of New York, working in conjunction with the Church Investment Group and ratified by the Trustees, decided to minimize the diocesan portfolio’s exposure to the equity and fixed-income securities of fossil fuel companies.The resulting diocesan portfolio, using ESG approaches to its equity and fixed-income holdings, minimizes exposure to energy companies.“A company’s behavior impacts the real world and they are a critical component in the solution,” says JoAnn Hanson, Church Investment Group president and chief executive officer. “ESG investment approaches identify those companies which have proactive strategies relating to climate change, as well as other important social and governance matters. Investors, in turn, can profitably invest with proactive companies and influence the behavior of the corporate world.”“Fossil fuel-free investing is gathering momentum,” Hanson added, “and it has given us an opportunity to introduce the church to ESG principles. Episcopal organizations can help to finance positive change while earning a good return on their investments.The group uses the investment firm Hirtle Callaghan as its chief investment officer. “Our relationship with Hirtle Callaghan allows us bring the strength of multi-billion-dollar purchasing power and investment experience to work for church organizations,” noted Hanson.Episcopal organizations interested in ESG and fossil fuel-free investing should contact Hanson at [email protected] Church Investment Group is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity working exclusively for the Episcopal Church.  CIG has been designed to allow Episcopal organizations to invest in the same fashion as the largest endowments or pension plans through management by full time professionals who employ a consistent, value-oriented investment philosophy.

County Fire Chief Urges Extreme Caution as Foothills Enter Fall Fire Season

first_img Community News More Cool Stuff faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Los Angeles County Fire Chief is circulating a letter to all county residents to advise them to prepare for the upcoming fall fire season.“You play a vital role in protecting your life, the lives of your loved ones, and property,” County Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby writes. “Through advance planning and preparation, we can all be ready for the next wildfire.”Osby is warning that the combined effects of years of drought, high temperatures, low humidity and dry Santa Ana winds have the potential to cause devastating consequences during the fall fire season.“Southern California continues to be one of the most desirable places on earth to live. However, many challenges, including longer and warmer summers, fast-moving powerful storms, and an on-going drought continue to challenge our ability to live safely in the wildland-urban interface areas of Los Angeles County,” Osby writes in the message.He further warns that as the numerous fires that have impacted Northern California have proven, any fire that gets established near homes will quickly threaten lives and property.The county Fire Department has prepared a “Ready! Set! Go! Personal Wildfire Action Plan” that provides guidance on retrofitting homes with fire-resistant features, creating defensible space around homes and developing an emergency plan should any home be threatened by a wildfire and residents need to evacuate.The action plan is available for download from the county Fire Department website, www.fire.lacountv.gov.Fire Chief Osby also wants to encourage residents in the wildland-urban interface to judiciously water plants and ornamental vegetation in accordance with local water restriction ordinances. He considers this another step in wildfire prevention.“Proper maintenance and removal of dead material is equally important as it only takes a single ember to ignite dry vegetation,” Osby said.For more information about wildfire prevention and emergency procedures, visit the Los Angeles County Fire Department website, www.fire.lacountv.gov, or their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LACoFD Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Make a comment Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Business News Top of the News HerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Ayurveda Heath Secrets From Ancient IndiaHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWho Was The Hollywood ‘It Girl’ The Year You Were Born?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeauty Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

PCBOE says ‘all systems go’ for aviation

The VHS will offer credit recovery for students who have fallen behind and advanced classes for students who want to jump ahead. The classes will be taught over the Internet.Bazzell said there is a possible opportunity for the VHS and Global Studies classes to be housed at the Extended Learning Center on South Brundidge Street in Troy.Bazzell told the board the final inspection of the athletic complex at Pike County High School is scheduled for the first week in June.“We will plan no new capital projects for next year but will take that time to do projects that deal with issues at each school,” he said.Board member Wyman Botts said he attended honors and graduation ceremonies at the county schools and was impressed by what he observed.“If I had school-aged children, I would be glad and happy for them to attend Pike County schools,” he said.Willie Wright, Pike County High School principal, addressed the board and reported on the status of the Brundidge city recreation program, which is now being administered by the Pike County School System.“A concern that the City of Brundidge had was with participation in the programs that were offered,” Wright said. “But participation has been good. We had 100 kids participate in summer ball. We had a Miracle League team and we were proud to offer that to our kids.”Wright said participation was also good in the football program and especially in the basketball program.In football, the city’s nine- and 10-year-old team won the Super Bowl and the nine-and 10-year-old team went to the state basketball tournament.“We’ve been able to create programs with a family atmosphere,” Wright said. “The recreation programs are positive and beneficial.”In personnel action, the board,• Approved the end of year personnel recommendations.• Accepted the retirement resignation of Lisa Golden, effective June 1, 2014.• Accepted the resignation of Kathy Schofield, GHS, effective June 1, 2014.• Approved the extension of employment contracts for the high school counselors, Sharon Sullivan and Lena Lindsey by 20 days.• Approved the extension of employment contract for Jeff McClure to assist with Virtual High School preparations by 20 days.• Approved permission to transfer Florence Tucker from CNP worker at GHS to CNP worker at GES.• Approved permission to transfer Lucille Taylor from CNP worker GES worker to CNP worker at GHS.In other actions, the board,• Rejected all bids for the Goshen softball field for non-conforming.• Approved one-year extensions on contracts for the 2014-2015 school year for Pullom Lawn Service, ground maintenance; Advance Disposal, garbage collection; Eagle Cleaning Service, janitorial service; and Russell Petroleum, gasoline and diesel fuel; and the Thompson Gas propane bid.• Approved permission to award the bid for Pest Control for CNP to Meeks Termite and Pest Control for the 2014-2015 school year.* Approved permission for CNP to provide breakfast and lunch as part of a summer feeding program for Pike County Elementary School.• Approved the permission request for CNP to provide lunch as part of the summer feeding program at GHS.• Approved permission for the enrichment summer school program at PCES, in partnership with the City of Brundidge.• Approved permission to award milk bid for 2014-2015 to the lowest bidder.
