Barbarians v Australia – preview

Dave Dennis In at the deep end: Sam Tomkins will make his union debut against the world’s second-best nationYou never know what to expect when the Barbarians come to town – but this weekend’s Killik Cup clash against Australia at Twickenham contains more uncertainties than usual, writes Alan Pearey.1. Foremost among them is the presence of England rugby league full-back Sam Tomkins, whose first game of union will entail marking Digby Ioane! Tomkins is 22 and set league alight when scoring five tries on his debut for Wigan Warriors in 2008. “Sam’s selection underlines that imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery,” said Nigel Wood, the RFL’s chief executive. Bit cocky that! He looks a special talent but surely this union rookie will be exposed against a back-line as sharp as the Aussies?2. The battle of the tens will be fascinating. Danny Cipriani of the Melbourne Rebels returns to Twickenham without the same baggage of expectation weighing him down when he quit English rugby. And with Quade Cooper injured, 36-cap James O’Connor makes a first Test start as a fly-half. He’s a wing or full-back normally, is earmarked as a future inside-centre, and will probably pass his fly-half test with flying colours – he’s sheer class.3.  Like Tomkins, Baa-Baas centre Robbie Fruean is uncapped and at 23 his time to state his case for an All Black shirt has come. Fruean is a former IRB U19 Player of the Year who was struck by illness and needed open-heart surgery. If he and Mortlock don’t cancel out Horne and Barnes it will only be because as a pairing they’ve had almost no time to practise – which of course is the Barbarians’ perpetual problem.4. Will the World Cup-winning All Blacks play like champs or chumps? Keven Mealamu, Jerome Kaino, Adam Thomson and Isaia Toea are in the Baa-Baas starting XV and history shows it can be difficult to get back into one’s stride after World Cup celebrations. Unless they stayed off the booze…5. No such issue for Barbarians skipper Victor Matfield, who at 34 will bow out of international rugby after 110 South Africa caps. What a forward he’s been and still is. “He’s a wonderful player and you can see why when you get up close. It’s been a pleasure to work with him,” said Steve Hansen, who’s coaching the Baa-Baas with Graham Henry.The Barbarians have beaten New Zealand and South Africa in recent years but I expect the Wallabies to do a number on them. 18 Jason White18.

Every country the Lions have faced outside of ‘The Big Three’

first_imgMonday Apr 20, 2020 Every country the Lions have faced outside of ‘The Big Three’ Over the past 30 years, the British and Irish Lions have had a consistent diary, whereby they tour one of South Africa, Australia or New Zealand every four years.ADVERTISEMENTThis structure may be in jeopardy though, as World Rugby chairman candidate Agustín Pichot seeks to expand the Lions tour from ‘The Big Three’ to a worldwide scale.This is a reasonable desire of his given the growth and development of the game in other parts of the world, such as Argentina, as well as Japan, who have never played the historic team before.A potential fixture between the Lions and the Brave Blossoms has been discussed recently, which could take place before the 2021 tour to South Africa.It seems inevitable that the schedule of the Lions will change again in the coming the years, as, after all, even the concept of a tour of Australia was once far less frequent than to South Africa or New Zealand.The Lions have only played the Wallabies 23 times (losing six and winning 17), including only one test in over 40 years in the first half of the 20th century.In contrast the Lions have played the Springboks 46 times (losing 23, winning 17 and drawing six) and the All Blacks 41 times (losing 30, winning seven and drawing six).ADVERTISEMENTThis does not mean that the Lions have not played any other countries throughout their illustrious history, which began in 1888 with a tour of New Zealand and Australia, and saw them play their first ever Test match in 1891 against South Africa.In fact there are some surprising names the Lions have faced along the way, and here they are:ArgentinaUnder the name ‘British Combined’ in May and June 1910, a team of 16 Englishmen and three Scots toured Argentina, playing the national side and beating them 28-3. Bizarrely, this coincided with another Lions tour of southern Africa.The Lions returned to Argentina in 1927, and participated in a longer tour which consisted of nine matches, including four Tests. Unfortunately for the home side, this was a series to be forgotten, as they fell to a combined score 160-3 across those four matches.The Lions returned nine years later in 1936, where they would play ten matches, including ones against Argentina A and B sides, but only one Test in which they won 23-0 in Buenos Aires.ADVERTISEMENTIt would be 79 more years before the two sides met again, when Sir Clive Woodward’s side hosted the Pumas at the Millenium Stadium in 2005 ahead of the ill-fated tour of New Zealand. The game finished in a 25-25 draw, which was one of the signs during that period that Argentina deserved to compete against the best. However, that remains the last time the two sides played each other.ZimbabweBetween 1910 and 1974, the Lions played Zimbabwe (although named Southern Rhodesia or Rhodesia during that period) nine times, sandwiched in tours of South Africa, winning all encounters.The first was in 1910 in Bulawayo, where the Lions won 24-11before losing a Test series against South Africa.The two sides met again in 1924 at the Salisbury Sports Ground, amid a 21-match tour which also saw the Lions lose to South Africa in a four-match series.A 24-match tour in 1938, where the Lions lost 2-1 to the Springboks, saw them play Zimbabwe twice, which they also did in 1955 during a 25-match tour of Africa, which finished with a 2-2 series draw against South Africa.Only three more contests would be played between the two, during the 1962 and 1968 tours, in which South Africa were victorious, and the 1974 tour, which was won by the Lions.Sri LankaThe Lions have played Sri Lanka twice in their history, although named Ceylon at the time, winning both.The first match came en route the journey home after a 28-match tour of New Zealand and Australia in 1930, where the visitors lost the series 3-1 to the former and 1-0 to the latter. The tour ended on a positive note though, with a 45-0 win over Sri Lanka at the Colombo Racecourse.The same venue played host to their second clash 20 years later in 1950. This was once again after a 29-match tour of New Zealand and Australia, where the Lions were slightly more successful this time, losing three matches against the All Blacks, but winning both matches they had with Australia. Their match with Sri Lanka on the journey home had a similar scoreline to their first meeting, with the Lions winning 44-6.Namibia [South West Africa]Just as Zimbabwe were, contests with Namibia (known as South West Africa when they faced the Lions) were added to the itinerary for the Lions during their tours of South Africa in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.The Lions faced Namibia on four occasions, in 1955, 1962, 1968 and 1974, with every match played in Windhoek, and the Lions coming out victorious in each one of them.East AfricaFixtures against East Africa were also part of the schedule during the 1955 and 1962 Lions tours of Africa. This team was comprised of players from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania andboth contests were played at the Ngong Road Ground in Nairobi, Kenya, with the Lions winning the first in 1955 39-12 and the second in 1962 50-0.WalesA few months after the Lions’ tour of Africa in 1955, they faced Wales at Cardiff Arms Park, although it did not have some of the players that featured in the tour earlier that year. The Lions were victorious nonetheless, winning the match 20-17.RELATED VIDEO: Canada While it has been seen that the Lions would return home from Australia and New Zealand via Sri Lanka, they opted for North America in 1959 and 1966.Following a 31-match tour of Australia and New Zealand, in which they won the series against the Wallabies and lost to the All Blacks, the Lions played two further matches in Canada. Although they did not play the national team, they played British Columbia and Eastern Canada, winning both.They returned in 1966 after a 33-match tour of Australia and New Zealand, where they lost to British Columbia but beat the national team 19-8 in Toronto.FijiThe Lions capped off their tour of New Zealand in 1977 with a match against Fiji at Buckhurst Park, now the ANZ National Stadium in Suva.After losing the series 3-1 against the All Blacks, the Lions fortunes’ did not improve in the Pacific, as they fell 25-21. Fiji therefore remain the only national side the Lions have played but never beaten.FranceThree months after the Lions’ hugely successful 1989 tour of Australia, where Sir Ian McGeechan’s side won eleven of their twelve matches, including a 2-1 series win over the Wallabies, they faced France at the Parc de Princes.The Lions edged Les Bleus on that occasion 29-27, and this remains the only time the two teams have crossed paths.Barbarians Though not strictly a Test match, the Barbarians are still a recognised team in rugby outside of the ‘Big Three’ that the Lions usually play.The first fixture between the two took place at Twickenham in September 1977, a month after the tour of New Zealand and Fiji, to mark the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The Lions won that match 23-14.The teams played again 36 years later, when Warren Gatland’s Lions took a pitstop in Hong Kong ahead of the tour of Australia in 2013. The Lions comfortably won that match 59-8 before a series win down under.Rest of the World XVPlayed between the 1983 tour of New Zealand and the 1989 tour of Australia, the Lions faced a formidable Rest of the World XV, called ‘The Rest’, in 1986 at Cardiff Arms Park, losing 15-7.This was recognised as a Test, and the players were awarded caps in 2018.Who have you most enjoyed watching the Lions come up against?

On the important urban crossing of The Periférico and Via Atlixcayotl in the Angelópolis area of Pueba is located ADAMANT, a new complex of 30 levels of mixed uses that has become the leading project in sustainability and comfort in the most important area of development in Puebla.Save this picture!© Paul CzitronThe new urban center includes 20,000 m2 of housing divided into 175 lofts ranging from 50 m2 to 120 m2. At the same time, Adamant seeks to enrich the urban fabric creating a commercial area in front of the complex ensuring 24 hours of public life providing equipment, services and security to its users. The accessibility of the location and the transport facilities make the whole complex a landmark that focuses on densification, optimization and building community.Save this picture!Floor PlanA Living SculptureThe monolithic tower emerges as a torso on the horizon. The homogeneous stone materials of this building become a sculpture: black granite and glass merge to give rise to geometric experimentation. This result allows architectural experimentation and combines the luxury and comfort through octagonal floor plans that are the way to obtain a broader department facade. Through the design of fractal patterns, the main tower results in a patchwork of garden terraces that open to the sky and landscape to address the inhabitant to spectacular views and also bathe the interior with light and cozyness.Save this picture!© Hector VelascoBuilding CommunityThe precise objective for the design of ADAMANT was to reduce the dwelling unit to optimize resources and spaces and  therefore widen the public areas, in other words: the objective was to design community.Save this picture!© Hector VelascoThe vision of the project is that the user can live, work and consume in a highly densified urban area to save on travel and therefore root to a friendly community that has all the services and amenities. The commercial downtown area functions as its base, this is a public area of two levels that plays with the tower’s geometry unfolding itself to latter become housing units and give way to an integral complex.Save this picture!© Hector VelascoConsidering the current market for a heterogeneous society and a new perspective of different and inclusive family conformations, departments are designed for those individuals who need independent, manageable and comfortable spaces. All residents have the same access to the common areas and form a strong community of neighbors.Save this picture!Site PlanDoor to PueblaIn the urban context, ADAMANT engages in a close dialogue with the tower which faces across the avenue, the JV-tower the tallest in the state. In a proper integration with the rest of the buildings and the proximity of the highway to Atlixco, ADAMANT is located in a strategic position to welcome passers crossing the highway to Puebla through a symbolic gate between two almost symmetrical towers in height and proportion who resemble the voice of progress.Save this picture!© Hector VelascoThis new urban icon together a new social vision and the highest architectural design.

PA DOC: Stop persecuting Bryant Arroyo for exercising free speech!

first_imgBryant Arroyo, an incarcerated worker at Pennsylvania SCI Frackville, was placed in isolated custody for several days — in other words, thrown in the hole — for suggesting to friends and family that they keep their recordings of video conference calls and share what he says through social media, so the public can learn how bad the PA Department of Corrections treats incarcerated people.To attend a Skype hearing April 5, Arroyo was made to wear a bright orange jumpsuit, hands cuffed behind his back and chained, while never leaving SCI Frackville — the hearing officers were in SCI Mahanoy.He was found not guilty on 2 of 3 charges and returned to the general population. Arroyo’s only “crime” was free speech, but officials punished him by denying him access to video conference calls for 60 days. On April 7, he was returned to isolation for “observation” for 15 days, while officials conduct further investigations.Friends and supporters of Bryant have since been contacted by Frackville Superintendent Kathy Brittain and told their visits with him will be restricted indefinitely. Arroyo is a well-known advocate for environmental justice, who has been outspoken against abuse by the PA DOC, especially during the COVID crisis.Call Superintendent Brittain at SCI Frackville: (570) 874-4516, ext. 2102And John E. Wetzel, Secretary of Corrections: (717) 728-4109Tell them:Bryant Arroyo ( CU1126)Take him out of the Restricted Housing Unit and return him to his cell in the general populationRescind the 60-day restriction of video conference calls Stop harassing him for exercising his constitutional right to free speechFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
