Ireland v Georgia: Talking points

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Pressure for places led to a patchy first fortyWith thirteen changes made from the side that beat South Africa, there were a lot of players coming into this game feeling under pressure to perform. This weight of expectation wasn’t coming from the coaches or the fans but from the men themselves, who knew this was their opportunity to stake a claim for the jersey not only against Australia, but also, looking ahead to the Six Nations. As a result, it was a nervy first half. Despite dominating possession, they could not convert chances into points due to a lack of precision with ball in hand. At times Ireland lacked speed and a clinical edge in attack, but after the interval they played with greater tempo, patience and started to break down the Georgian defence.Out to impress: O’Donnell made 11 tackles against GeorgiaGood things come to those who waitSpeaking of patience, Ireland learned (the hard way with last year’s final minute defeat against New Zealand) that it can pay to bide your time in this game. Similar to last week against South Africa, it was not until the second half that Ireland managed to open up the Georgian defence.  The troubles in the first half at set piece and at times, the lack of shape in attack, highlight the importance of preparation time, especially with Joe Schmidt’s approach to using the squad as a whole.Ireland must protect the ball better Ireland recorded a convincing 49-7 win over Georgia in Dublin on Sunday, but what stood out from the game? During Schmidt’s reign, Ireland have tended to shy away from offloading and concentrated more on rapid ruck ball.  In fact, against South Africa there were no offloads at all with the team deciding to concentrate on limiting risk. Perhaps the coaches saw this match against Georgia as a chance to experiment as Ireland managed seven offloads. However, in the first half in particular, they struggled to look after the ball in contact, giving up well worked positions by not carrying it into contact with greater care. Ireland won six turnovers to Georgia’s five, but against a stronger opposition like Australia next week, conceding that number of turnovers could prove lethal.Born to run: Zebo beat six defenders – more than any other Ireland playerConfidence booster for those less experiencedFor a few of the debutants it was a dream start to their international career. A commanding performance from Dave Foley in the second row earned the Munsterman the man of the match award.  Stuart Olding came on in the second half when the Irishmen were in full flight but it eased the pressure and allowed the young centre to enjoy the occasion which he marked with a try.  Felix Jones has been unlucky with injuries throughout his career, but he’s a star at his province and by showcasing his skills at the Aviva could have worked himself into the matchday squad for the Australia game. As for Ian Madigan, he’s not exactly unfamiliar but it’s not too often he’s had the chance to start in the Ireland 10 jersey. As always he played with confidence and injected a pace into the game that will ease the Irish fans nerves if Johnny Sexton ever does get injured.center_img Go Jones: full-back Jones scored two tries in quick succession v Georgia Understudy: Madigan kicked 19 points for Ireland on Sunday as Sexton watched from the standsIt’s about ‘the group’ going forwardEvery player that was interviewed after the game spoke about ‘the group’ and how being in the training squad was as important as a place on the pitch or the bench. This can often sound like one of those clichéd lines fed to players by the press team, but they genuinely sounded like they meant it. That’s not to say every one of them would not rather be in the first choice XV but Schmidt has instilled a mentality of togetherness, with an emphasis on the role of each individual within the squad. The players seem to understand that rotation is key if they are to take a strong squad to England 2015, and unlike other coaching regimes, no one is guaranteed a starting berth under Schmidt so there will always be movement. That means, everyone always has a chance and something to aim for.last_img read more

Lee Blackett scores the fastest ever Guinness Premiership try

first_imgMonday Mar 24, 2008 Lee Blackett scores the fastest ever Guinness Premiership try Leeds Carnegie made history against the Newcastle Falcons on Friday night by scoring the fastest ever Guinness Premiership try. ADVERTISEMENTTry scorer Lee Blackett had to wait 22 matches and four years before scoring his first try for the club, but when it came, it came in style, writing his name into the record books after exactly 8.28 seconds.The previous best was from Tom Voyce of Wasps, who touched down against Harlequins in 2004 after 9.63 seconds.Blackett, who picked up the bouncing ball straight from the kick off from flyhalf Alberto Di Bernardo, said “I said to Albie to give me the ball inside the opening minute but I didn’t actually mean within the first eight seconds! It was a shock when Newcastle missed the ball from the kick-off and it bounced straight back to me.“I don’t really know how to celebrate tries. Obviously, it was a great start and it was an impressive performance as a whole,” he said.It was a bizarre bounce that wasn’t claimed by any of the Newcastle players, and once Blackett had it in his hands they looked almost shell shocked, with Toby Flood in particular not going for a tackle that he probably should have made.Leeds went on to achieve a famous victory over Newcastle, coming out on top 16-15.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This is a renovation project. The house was built during the post-war era of Japan, when the influence of western design became popular. The superficial imitation of western architecture was used for the design of common housing, as seen in so-called Provence or English style houses in Japan.Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaRecommended ProductsGlassDip-TechDigital Ceramic Glass PrintingCeramicsGrespaniaWall Tiles – Wabi SabiDecorative ElementsB&B ItaliaCandles – OverscaleKitchen Furniture / CountertopsEGGERSplashback PanelsAs a part of this trend, the house in Okusawa sought to imitate the English brick house. It had a triangular wooden gable, typical of the English roof, while it also included a parapet. At first sight it looks like a RC structure, but this is misleading; the wooden beams are reinforced by steel frames to lessen the number of interior pillars. While the house might be superficial, it retains a certain charm that reminds us of familiar human feelings.Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaRather than denying its immaturity out of the post-war period, we have taken a gentle and positive attitude towards it and renovated it into a home suitable for today.Save this picture!PlansProject gallerySee allShow less’New Towns New Territories: New Players in Urban Planning’ ConferenceArticlesKISS Pop-Up Chapel / Z-A StudioArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/271350/house-in-okusawa-schemata-architects Clipboard Projects “COPY” Houses Architects: Schemata Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” 2009 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/271350/house-in-okusawa-schemata-architects Clipboard Japan Save this picture!©  Takumi Ota+ 25 Share CopyAbout this officeSchemata ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodHousesTokyo3D ModelingJapanPublished on September 17, 2012Cite: “House in Okusawa / Schemata Architects” 17 Sep 2012.

The latest, Between a rock and a hard place is published today, Monday 17 August.In it, it reveals that VCSE leaders now see the idea of linear progression in funding from emergency to recovery and then to renewal becoming unhelpful as restrictions are tightened in virus hot spots, with a difficult winter predicted, and medical solutions to Covid-19 not yet been found.However, both funders and VCSE organisations need to move on from the demands of applying for and distributing six-month grants, and the challenge is now to move back to more conventional cycles of one, three and even five-year funding, without losing the urgency and lightness of touch that has characterised the immediate response by so many.According to the briefing, at the forefront of VCSE leaders’ minds are:Staff and personal welfare, with comments including: ‘Our clients are really suffering at the moment, which means staff are hearing difficult stories and clients are becoming harder to help – they are starting to take their frustrations out on our staff more, which is very hard.’Navigating the easing of lockdown: ‘Like many others, we’ve come out of the crisis phase and we’ve survived it. But planning for increasing capacity with physical distancing, infection prevention and having control measures in place is going to make our services very, very limited.’Long-term strategy: ‘The support that clients will need in six months will not be what they normally need. We are having to rethink our strategy for the long term.’The briefing also shares what VCSE leaders say they most need, with the top three being: access to peer support, supportive funding structures, and collaboration and cross-sector engagement.As well as moving on from short-term funding, the briefing calls for funders to develop and prioritise:Trust: by selecting organisations whose values and ambitions align with their own and then backing their knowledge, experience and skills.Flexible funding, with trust best expressed through genuinely unrestricted funding, which grantees can use as they see fit in response to changing circumstances.Support: by respecting organisations’ own analysis of their needs and circumstances, and funding them to create the capacity to engage with and use support, and giving them the freedom to decline it, if the timing or focus isn’t right for themThe briefing can be read in full on the Institute’s site.

Ag Senators Express Frustrations, Concerns to EPA Administrator

Mississippi’s Thad Cochran told McCarthy the Waters of the U.S. proposal and agriculture interpretive rule are a source of uncertainty, anxiety and distrust for people in rural areas. Kansas Senator Pat Roberts expressed his frustration with EPA’s recent campaign calling concerns surrounding the proposed rules myths. Iowa’s Chuck Grassley reiterated his concerns with the proposed waters rule – too – and says there’s no question this administration has a poor track record with agricultural interests on any number of issues.Grassley says it’s hard to believe how EPA thinks it can manage new rules when this unhelpful approach and general negative attitude toward agriculture seem to be standard protocol. He says the meeting with McCarthy did little to alleviate his concerns that the agency isn’t listening to the people its rules will directly impact. EPA Spokeswoman Liz Purchia says EPA knows no one understands the importance of water quality better than the ag community – and the Administrator appreciated the meeting with the Senators.last_img read more

That puts sellers behind the wheel of the housing market, according to Zillow’s Weekly Market Report. What’s more, typical time-on the market remained at record lows.  With a hike of almost 9% in median lost prices compared to last year, the price of typical homes on the market have spiked. However, as new for-sale inventory bubbles up month-over-month, coming closer to approaching last year’s figures more than any period since March, light might be creeping over the horizon for buyers. Median prices swelled to $345,722; the uptick in list price of 8.9% compared to last year looms as the highest jump year-over-year since at least last January. Concluding the week of July 18, the median sale price was $280,375—6.4% higher than last year. Meantime, the hike of 4.6% month-over-month median sale price was second in size only to the week before in records dating back through last January; the week ending July 11 posted a 5% month-over-month increase). At 4.2%, 1.4% points lower than a year ago, the share of listings held its ground.  Mirroring the past three weeks, typically, homes are going under contract 13 days after they’re listed—two weeks quicker than a year ago. Meantime, in Zillow’s weekly records extending back through January of last year, the briefest median time on market.   Compared to 2019, there was an 18.4% hike in newly pending home sales—the highest year-over year increase since November 2019. It’s unchanged contrasted to a month ago, and jumped only 0.5% week over week.  Among metro areas, in newly pending sales-year-over-year, based on market size, New York/Newark was at 18.4%, followed by Los Angeles, 4.9%, Chicago, 43.1%; and Dallas/Fort Worth, 26.2%. Squared off the list was, Philadelphia, 24.0%. In fact, in light of records low mortgage rates and demand driven by millennials hitting the age of homeownership the escalating volume of home sales seems entrenched, according to FirstAM.com.However, Chief Economist Mark Fleming says homes not on the market are out of the reach of potential buyers.  According to FirstAM’s July potential home sales model, last month, there was an uptick in potential existing home sales to a 5.59 million seasonally adjusted annualized rate (SAAR), a 1.9% month-over-month increase. That’s a 61.3% hike from the market potential low point in February 1993.   Meantime, compared to a year ago. among existing-home sales, the market potential parachuted 4.0%. That’s an almost 215,800 (SAAR) hike in sales.   Potential existing-homes sales now is 1.2 million (SAAR)—or 17.7% below the pre-recession peak of market potential from April 2006, while the market for existing-home sales failed to meet its potential by 1.0% or approximately 56,000 (SAAR) sales. Meanwhile, between June 2020 and July 2020, there was a bounce by an estimated 16,000 (SAAR) sales in the market performance gap.
