Namibian captain – Jacques Burger“I don’t think Wales are going to be telling us what they’re going to do so we won’t be telling them.”– Mum’s the word for Samoa backs coach Brian McLean as he deflects a query about his side’s tactics for Sunday’s crunch match with the Welsh in Hamilton.“Unfortunately Namibia played a good game, and it showed through contact.”– Prop Anthony Perenise reflects on the injury cost of Samoa’s 49-12 victory after a bruising battle with Namibia in Rotorua.“It is a part of us that we don’t lie down and we didn’t do that, so I’m pleased.”– Coach Johan Diergaardt (NAM) hails his players for sticking to their task despite being outclassed.“We have to hit around their legs – they’re big boys. I’d like to see what they ate growing up.”– Namibia captain Jacques Burger ponders the secret to the Samoans’ physical stature.“It’s probably all the taro (vegetable) and corned beef we eat in the islands. Probably some steroids or something in that.”– Burger need wonder no more, according to scrum half Junior Poluleuligaga (SAM).“In the first half the wind blew us away. In the second half we didn’t make use of it.”– Renaud van Neel (NAM) acknowledges his team made some elementary errors. “My three years’ residency came up in June and I sort of got called in.”– New Zealand-born fly half Murray Williams on being fast-tracked into the Japan squad ahead of Rugby World Cup 2011.“You can look at it two ways: a hard task or an exciting opportunity. And we’re taking the exciting opportunity approach.”– Japan coach John Kirwan (NZL) is as positive as ever as he looks forward to his team’s Pool A match against the All Blacks on Friday.

It’s the Middlesex school’s very first Team of the Month award.Hampton warmed up with a 38-21 trial match against Dulwich College and impressed all in claiming the Esher RFC President’s Cup, beating Abingdon 5-0 in the final through a try by centre Alex Tavener.Led by flanker Laurence Brown, Hampton took the pool scalps of Whitgift (5-0), John Fisher (5-0) and Wellington College (10-0). Fly-half Tom MccGwire scored tries in all three group games, the other scorer full-back Joe Battle. MccGwire made some exciting breaks and was named Player of the Tournament, but there were huge contributions by centres Tavener and Kane Alboni, who made some big tackles in midfield and provided real go-forward.No 8 Alex Ayoade made some great charges off the back of the scrum, prop Alex Lundberg (England U16 in 2011) shone in the loose and hooker Sam Evans was outstanding in his set-piece work.Wins over Reigate GS (two tries by Alboni) and RGS Guildford (two tries by lock Ben Lawrence) kept the momentum going before wins at London Oratory and, in the Daily Mail Cup, Richard Challoner.Eight players got tries against Oratory, emphasising the all-round contribution of a XV oozing with confidence. Prop Jobie Burke went over three times in the cup game.This article appeared in the December 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Star man: Brad Barritt stood out with a solid defensive display and strong running with ball in handBy Ben ColesA first win for the Lancaster regime took plenty of blood and guts but was far from the convincing performance many would have hoped for. In all honesty, England’s performance was a realistic reflection of their current state: a new team learning new combinations, which despite a considerable amount of goodwill and hard work will not gel instantly.England’s defence overall was very good, but fell short of top marks due to the amount of lapses that led to Scottish opportunities. Against better teams with a more clinical attacking edge, they would have been behind on the scoreboard by a considerable amount. Credit must go to Ben Youngs for doing his upmost to prevent Greig Laidlaw scoring a try, with the TMO ruling there was not enough clear downward pressure to award it. In other areas however, Youngs failed to truly control the tempo of the game from scrum-half.Tight call: Greig Laidlaw and Ben Youngs race to touch the ball down firstWhy? Well, principally because England were fighting a never-ending siege at the breakdown from the physical Scottish pack. Chris Robshaw’s ripped shirt may well become an iconic image of this year’s championship. In picking the lighter Phil Dowson over the heavyweight Ben Morgan, England lost some grunt in the rucks and it showed, as the Scottish pack led by Richie Gray and Man of the Match David Denton pummelled them. This battle slowed down England’s attack significantly, limiting them to few breaks and chances to unsettle a solid Scottish defence.The one moment when Scotland were rattled, though, was Charlie Hodgson’s chargedown, leading to the only try of the game. Overall, Hodgson’s return to the national team was positive. His defence, so long the bête noire of his game, was noticeably improved as he put in a series of eye-catching tackles in the first half. With Parks dithering close to his line, Hodgson pounced, with a favourable bounce setting him up for the score. This really was England’s only chance, and fortunately they took it. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Start time? Scarlets No 8 Ben MorganThat is no slant on Owen Farrell, who for such a young man delivered under the greatest pressure when he landed the 40-metre penalty late on to stretch the lead to seven. A couple of missed kicks should not detract from what was a solid debut, and switching him to fly-half for the final ten minutes was a good move by Lancaster.For next week, Morgan must start ahead of Dowson in the only real change to the XV. Toby Flood’s return to fitness could see him form a new midfield combination with Farrell, but the Hodgson-Farrell-Barritt unit is so efficient it seems wrong to change it. If England can control their own ball better, and dominate more at the breakdown, then Italy should give them few problems. But fail to front up and they will be punished. NOT FOR FEATURED In fact, Hodgson played a big part in their change of tact when they had the ball in the second half. With the wide game trying to use David Strettle and Chris Ashton leaving England isolated at the ruck, Plan B’s initiation was the right call and it paid off. Bringing in Morgan, and Geoff Parling to an extent, helped in this area whilst Robshaw along with Alex Corbisiero, Mouritz Botha and the impressive Brad Barritt kept it direct and hit hard.Overall, Barritt was by far the most impressive debutant. Not the flashiest of centres, but his power in the midfield was invaluable. The Saracen seemed to produce a string of big hits (he was England’s joint top tackler with Tom Palmer on 13), the most of the whole England team on 13 with Tom Palmer, and proved he can cut it at the breakdown when he forced Scotland to concede a penalty for holding on late in the second half. Going forward, he must start, preferably alongside another centre with a strong dose of X-factor such as Manu Tuilagi or Jonathan Joseph.

He’s a game breaking ball player and he’s matured as a game controller. As we’re a team that wants to attack, Shane is a great player to partner Tomás O’Leary. His contribution during his first spell with London Irish was massive and I know he will contribute the same when he joins us again.

Tonga, meanwhile, played an exciting brand of rugby, stringing offloads together and giving the crowd in Newcastle something to shout about. They may not have gotten anywhere near in the end, running out of steam in the second half, but there’s was crowd-pleasing brand of swing-for-the-fences rugby.New Zealand never panicked, got their reward and head into the World Cup quarter-finals unbeaten and in need of a sterner Test.Always popular: Tonga thank fans after the final whistleWHAT’S HOTAll Blacks squad – New Zealand had no problem rotating players. They’ve used all 31 of their squad so far in this World Cup and they weren’t afraid to ring the changes in-game. Tony Woodcock scored, but struggled in the scrum so left minutes into the second half. Beauden Barrett came into the back three and shifted everyone around, pushing Ben Smith to the wing. They calmly mixed it up.Double-barrelled in every sense – Nehe Milner-Skudder created tries for Ben Smith and Ma’a Nonu with slick hands and went on to score two tries himself. He looked sharp, bright-eyed and eager to work. It is clear the Hurricane has banished any thoughts of his disappointing opening showing against Argentina.Fourth but not forgotten – Tonga will have to go through the pain of qualifying for the 2019 World Cup in Japan after finishing fourth in this Pool, but they have no cause to be ashamed. Their loss to Georgia in the opener was an early highlight in a great tournament. Their win over Namibia kept the dream of a quarter alive, and their losses to Argentina and New Zealand were hard fought and in no way a walkover (despite the scorelines). Thanks, Tonga.A dance-off – Before this one kicked off, Tonga did their Sipi Tau at the same time as the haka. For any neutral in the ground it was a real treat and something likely to fly around the internet as a Vine for weeks to come.The centurion: Ma’a Nonu was the centre of attention after winning his 100th capWHAT’S NOTKiwi scrum – Tonga pummelled the All Blacks in the set play, winning penalties and buckling opposition loosehead Tony Woodcock. Tonga perhaps should have had a penalty try at the end of the first half. And in the second changes were needed in the All Blacks ranks.The turf – What a shame Scotland and Samoa have to play their vitally important game less than 24 hours after New Zealand and Tonga tore up the St James’ pitch. The head groundsman must have been weeping after 40 minutes.Pitch invaders – We had a drunk bloke on the field. Again. When he got smashed by stewards a cheer went up, but what’s the point?STATS
Downtime with… Leinster and Ireland hooker Sean CroninWhat’s the funniest thing you’ve heard in a game? I played with Mike McCarthy at Connacht and Leinster, and once he screamed out, “I have him in the mousetrap, I have him in the mousetrap” as he was making a choke tackle. It made me stand back to work out what he was saying! He’s a character.Who are the jokers in the squad? In the Leinster squad you have Fergus McFadden, Noel Reid and, probably unbeknownst to him, James Ryan! He makes jokes without realising. The other day he asked one of the boys who’d just had a baby, “How’s Jimmy getting on?” The baby’s name is Freddie, so all the boys burst out laughing.Any practical jokes you can tell us?This would be more in Ireland camp. We get our laundry back in brown bags with our name on and some get kicked about. Johnny Sexton’s and Peter O’Mahony’s get attacked the most. I think because they give out most in training, lads take it as an opportunity to get them back.Do you know who the pranksters are?Conor Murray and Keith Earls are on the wanted list, but unless CCTV is installed no one will fess up. They’d have to be caught in the act.If you could be one of your team-mates, who would it be and why?That’s a tough one. It would probably be Johnny Sexton. He’s pretty good at rugby and he’s got loads of money!Man at No 10: Johnny Sexton breaks against England (Getty Images)Do you have any nicknames?I could write a book on my nicknames! The most common is Nugget, which goes back to the 2011 World Cup. Leo Cullen, now my coach, came up with it and the thing with nicknamesis not to react. I must have reacted badly and it’s stuck. I get Barrel – to do with my body shape – and others.What really annoys you?Traffic, bad drivers, lack of punctuality. People being late grinds my gears.Do you have any phobias?I don’t like heights at all. The guys go bungee-jumping and stuff when we’re away, but I don’t have the stomach for it. I’m happy just to go for a round of golf.What’s your most embarrassing moment?I’ve had a few! I hadn’t been part of the Ireland set-up for long when we were doing the warm-up at Croke Park and I was so pumped up that I left my runners on. On the burst: Sean Cronin on a trademark attack for Ireland (Getty Images) Monikers, Iron Mike and mishaps with boots all come up in conversation with the Test No 2 This article originally appeared in the February 2019 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We were about to go out onto the pitch and Declan Kidney, who was the coach at the time, came up to me to say, “You’ve still got your runners on.” I had to turn around to put my boots on. It could have been worse – it could have happened in the tunnel in front of the opposition – but it was pretty embarrassing.Who would be your three dream dinner guests?I’d pick a musician – Anthony Kiedis, the lead singer of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Mike Tyson is a controversial character but I think he’d have some interesting stories. And I’d throw Usain Bolt in there. Again, he’s an interesting character with what he’s accomplished.Dinner entertainment: Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis (Getty Images)If you could have one superpower…Just to be able to beat the traffic, to be able to fly. From where I live, I could get to training pretty quick, and home again.Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?I’m into history and I think Barack Obama would be good. He’d have a lot of interesting stories to tell – and he could call the CIA to get us out of there.If your house was on fire, what would you save? People and pets are safe.I’d probably have to grab my first cap off the wall. It’s hanging up in a frame.What’s the silliest thing you’ve bought?My wife would be good at this and point out 100 things I’ve bought that are stupid. I bought a pair of Kurt Geiger boots in Australia last summer. They were pretty expensive and I’ve not taken them out of the box.You could have a race after dinner…He’s getting a bit older now. I might be able to challenge him!What’s your guilty pleasure?Pizza! A pepperoni pizza after matches is a real guilty pleasure. Chocolate too. Years ago at Munster we’d have pizzas after matches but those days are gone.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?I’m trying to finish my degree in business, but I’d like to be a teacher so I’d go back and do a post-grad course. I’m really interested in history and would like to get into that field, to teach history. n LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS

George F. Adamik,58, rector, St. Paul’s Church, Cary, North Carolina (Diocese of North Carolina),the Rev. Michael A. Bird, 44, rector, Christ Church, Bronxville, New York (Diocese of New York),the Very Rev. Samuel G. Candler, 55, dean, Cathedral of St. Philip, Atlanta, Georgia (Diocese of Atlanta),the Rev. Canon James H. Pritchett, 55, canon to the ordinary, Diocese of Western North Carolina andthe Very Rev. Robert C. Wright, 48, rector, St. Paul’s Church, Atlanta, Georgia (Diocese of Atlanta).The Feb. 13 announcement opens a month-long period during which members of the diocese may petition to add additional names to the ballot. (Information about the petition process is here.)“Today we look with excitement to the presentation of candidates for our next bishop,” said the Rev. Timothy Graham, president of the Standing Committee, in a press release. “I express profound gratitude for the careful and comprehensive work of the nominating committee. This committee, made up of clergy and lay representatives from across our diocese, has given us a fine slate of diverse, talented and qualified candidates.”Robin Mills Schreiber, chair of the Nominating Committee, said, “This slate is the result of many months of hard work, careful discernment and prayer. It has been a profound privilege and pleasure for me to be involved in this process. Our committee was comprised of many amazing individuals who worked uncomplainingly to see that we have the best slate possible to present to the diocese.”The person elected will succeed Bishop J. Neil Alexander, who was elected in 2001. At the time of his election, Alexander was a professor at the University of the South School of Theology and was priest in charge of St. Agnes’ Church in Cowan, Tennessee. Upon his resignation as diocesan bishop he will become professor of liturgics and head the Department for Anglican Studies at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology in Atlanta.A booklet with more information about the candidates, including answers to essay questions posed by the nominating committee, will be published later this week on the Diocese of Atlanta’s website.If there are petition candidates who are approved by the Standing Committee, names and similar information will be added to the booklet, according to the release.All candidates will come to the Diocese of Atlanta for five public gatherings during the week of May 13. The election of the 10th bishop of Atlanta is scheduled for June 2 at the Cathedral of St. Philip.Because the election falls within 120 days of the start of the July 4-12 meeting of the Episcopal Church’s General Convention, that body must consent to the bishop-elect’s ordination.The diocese has a website here devoted to the bishop search and transition.

La agencia EFE informa que París está dispuesto a intervenir, no así los Estados Unidos que teme a una acción bélica de consecuencias imprevisibles. El parlamento británico votó en contra de la idea del primer ministro. Lo más triste del conflicto en Siria es la situación de los niños. Se cree que un millón de niños han huido de la guerra en su país y se han refugiado en países vecinos. Estos niños suman la mitad del total de refugiados sirios según el Alto Comisionado para Refugiados de las Naciones Unidas. Hay más de dos millones de niños desplazados en el interior del país. Líderes de la ONU consideran que la comunidad internacional ha fallado en ayudar a una generación de personas verdaderamente necesitadas.Una convención especial para la elección de un nuevo obispo para Puerto Rico ha sido pospuesta hasta nuevo aviso por decisión de las autoridades de la iglesia.

Los modernos polizones arriesgan sus vidas y con frecuencia han muerto al caerse del techo de los vagones.

El obispo exhortó a todos a que oren para que haya “paz y reconciliación, con justicia y verdad”.Un Congreso Misionero Americano católico romano reunirá a 4,000 misioneros procedentes de América Latina y se llevará a cabo el próximo otoño en Maracaibo, la segunda ciudad de Venezuela, bajo el lema “Discípulos misioneros de Cristo desde América en un mundo multicultural y secularizado”. Su misión será ofrecer a las fuerzas misioneras del continente un espacio propicio para compartir y profundizar en la reflexión, la espiritualidad y las vivencias misioneras”.
