Wales claim hard-fought win over tough Tonga in Cardiff

first_imgMonday Nov 25, 2013 Wales claim hard-fought win over tough Tonga in Cardiff Wales picked up a 17-7 win against Tonga in Cardiff on Friday night, but more was expected of them ahead of a meeting with the Wallabies. All the points were scored in the first half, with Owen Williams and Ashley Beck scoring for the hosts. The tries that Wales did score were nicely taken but the home crowd expected a big second half, but the Tongan’s frustrated them and kept them scoreless after their 25th minute conversion. “It was pretty ugly out there. We knew going into the match how good a side Tonga were and we were not clinical enough, said Man of the Match, lock Luke Charteris. “A team dogged like this will keep putting us under pressure but we won the game. I should have had two tries but didn’t manage to get them,” he added.Charteris will be unavailable for the upcoming Test against Australia as he will be on club duty with Perpignan in France. Team mate James Hook and Bath prop Paul James will also be unable to play. Coach Warren Gatland said that as far as he knows everyone else will be available. Referring to the match, his 100th Test as a coach, he said that Tonga frustrated Wales. “I think there was 11 minutes ball in play in first half, which for me was probably the lowest I’ve ever seen in an international game in a first half.“And that was kind of the way it was played; re-set after re-set and slowing the game down and stopping. And that made it difficult for us to get some momentum.”“It’s an ugly win, but we’ll take it. It’s frustrating, but there was the ambition there to go and play and put ourselves under pressure to play. We need to be better and more clinical next week.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

No. 18 Syracuse upsets No. 2 Virginia behind Thomas goal

first_img Published on September 27, 2014 at 10:48 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Juuso Pasanen turned to the stands as the clock ticked down in the final seconds, pumping his arms up and down to motion for the raucous home crowd to stand up.It was a feeling no Syracuse team has experienced since Oct. 17, 2001, when the Orange beat then-No. 8 Rutgers, 3-2, in overtime. It took 13 years and 16 tries, but SU knocked off a Top-10 opponent on Saturday night.“It puts us at that table with all those big-time teams,” junior goalkeeper Alex Bono said. “(Virginia is) a final four team and for us to come out and make a statement like that is definitely a big deal for us.”After a Skylar Thomas header goal put SU ahead with 15 minutes remaining in the first half, the back three buckled down to post its eighth shutout of the year as No. 18 Syracuse (8-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) took down No. 2 Virginia (4-3-1, 1-1-1 ACC), 1-0, at SU Soccer Stadium in front of 2,019 fans.The Orange has come close to knocking off national powerhouses, most recently in a 1-0 loss against then-No. 4 Notre Dame on Sept. 13., but it was finally able to edge a team SU head coach Ian McIntyre thinks can win the national title.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Tonight, it kind of validates what you’re doing,” McIntyre said.Just 10 minutes into the game, Virginia’s Ryan Zinkhan fired just wide of the left post from close range. Less than a minute later, Jake Rozhansky beat two SU defenders before Bono tipped away a would-be goal. A minute after that Rozhansky shot at the near post and Bono tipped it again.The game flashed before Syracuse’s eyes in a matter of three minutes, but the defense of Jordan Murrell, Thomas and Tyler Hilliard was able to weather an early storm.The hosts had their own bevy of semi-threats, but after a half hour of knocking on the door, Thomas used his height to his advantage on a corner kick.Julian Buescher whipped in a corner from the right side and the 6-foot-3 Thomas mounted two Virginia defenders before heading the ball into the top-left corner to give Syracuse the lead.“We’ve been working on that all week, all year actually, probably my whole college career,” Thomas said. “…working on crossing and finishing and hopefully I finally got it down.”With a minute remaining in the first half, yet another corner kick found a Syracuse head. Alex Halis directed the ball to the far-right corner from close range past the dive of UVA goalie Calle Brown, but Pablo Aguilar stuck out his hand to stop the ball from crossing the line, to which no penalty was given.It was a microcosm of the second half for SU, as Nick Perea, Chris Nanco and Halis all threatened to extend the lead but were unable to do so.On a day where Syracuse could’ve blown the Cavaliers out, it was the defense, yet again, that allowed the team to hold on in a 1-0 game.“We have eight wins this season and every single one of our wins has been a shutout, which is massive for our defense, massive for our entire team front to back,” Bono said. “If we won 1-0 every single game, I can’t say I would mind that.”McIntyre noted how his team was tired of being second-best to top-tier opponents. He referenced last year’s games against Notre Dame and Virginia as ones that stuck out.This time though, he didn’t have to harp on falling just short.“I can’t comment on respect on a national stage, but in our locker room, we know we’ve got a very honest, hard-working group,” he said. “Not just to knick a game — to play well tonight, yes it was close, but we played some good soccer.” Commentslast_img read more

DeSantis to Fox News: Confirmed Virus Cases Likely “Small Fraction of Those Who Have Actually Had It”

first_imgGov. Ron DeSantis has outlined what he believes are critical next steps for states that want to be medically secure when they are able to restart their economies following the pandemic.In an interview airing Sunday on Fox News Channel, DeSantis says that his administration has been investing heavily in serological testing, which measures the number of antibodies that are present in a person’s blood when the body is responding to the virus.According to the Florida Department of Public Health, nearly 176,000 Floridians had been tested for the virus as of early Sunday, and almost 19,000 of those are positive.“You see different studies that have been done overseas, and I think that the consensus seems to be emerging that whoever tests positive for it is probably just a small fraction of those who have actually had it,” DeSantis explains. “Because, of course, for people who are in the younger age groups, people who don’t have significant underlying conditions, this could be something that [has] relatively mild symptoms.”The governor goes on to say that at the beginning of the pandemic, many people who were feeling mild flu-like symptoms did not seek medical treatment, and may therefore not be included in the official infection counts.“I think we’ll be able to help us determine how widespread has this been [through antibody testing],” DeSantis adds. “And of course, that then will then inform what we do going forward because the more widespread it is, then I think the less efficacy some of the lockdown policies will ultimately have.”Additionally, DeSantis explains, “In most parts of the state, 90 to 95 percent of people who test, test negative. But then also it gives us data to be able to base decisions on. We need to know how this virus is circulating in various parts of the state.”The interview airs at 8 p.m. Sunday on Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin.”last_img read more

Ali, Norton and golden age of heavyweights

first_imgIn this Sept. 10, 1973, file photo, Muhammad Ali, right, winces as Ken Norton hits him with a left to the head during their re-match at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. Norton, a former heavyweight champion, has died, his son said, Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013. He was 70. (AP Photo/File)by Tim DahlbergAP Sports ColumnistThey were young once, and perhaps it’s best to remember them that way.Magnificent men on stages equally as magnificent, they were part of the golden age of heavyweight boxing. With Muhammad Ali as the common thread, they fought in faraway places like Zaire and the Philippines, in Yankee Stadium and in the parking lot of a faux Roman palace on the Las Vegas Strip.“On any given night all of us could beat the other,” George Foreman said. “I had Ken Norton’s number and Joe Frazier’s number. Ali had my number, and Norton had Ali’s number. No one would give up.”For the better part of two decades, no one did. They fought each other and, if that didn’t settle things, they fought each other again. Ali in particular didn’t mind meeting a familiar foe, with three fights each against Norton and Frazier.For Norton, who died this week at the age of 70, fighting Ali didn’t just put him in the upper echelon of heavyweights at a time when heavyweights reigned supreme. It literally put food on his table for his son, Ken Jr., who would go on to play in the NFL for 13 years and now coaches linebackers for the Seattle Seahawks.The money was there because Ali made sure it was. He and Frazier met in what was truly the Fight of the Century in 1971, both getting $2.5 million purses that were unheard of at the time. In this June 9, 1978, file photo, Ken Norton, right, and Larry Holmes battle for the WBC heavyweight championship at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Holmes won the bout in a 15-round split decision. Gene Kilroy, who was Ali’s former business manager, says he’s sure Norton is “in heaven now with all the great fighters.”  (AP Photo/File) In this 1977 photo provided by the Las Vegas News Bureau, former heavyweight boxing champion Ken Norton helps Tina Turner jump rope in the ring at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.  (AP Photo/Las Vegas News Bureau)center_img A few years later, Ali was heavyweight champion again, though some thought his time had passed. He hadn’t looked that great against Norton in their 1976 fight at Yankee Stadium, and now he was going to defend his title against Alfredo Evangelista, a solid if unspectacular contender most noted as being the best heavyweight ever to emerge from Uruguay.“Why do you keep fighting?” a radio man asked Ali before the bout.Ali looked at the man like he had just landed from outer space before explaining why he was risking his heavyweight crown.“You know what they’re paying me for one night – $2.75 million. This is not Joe Frazier or Ken Norton or Jimmy Young,” he said. “I’m getting $2.75 million for a tuneup, a warm up, against a nobody.”There had to be some nobodies, of course, because the heavyweights who really mattered couldn’t keep fighting each other all the time. Sometimes, though, it seemed like they did, even to those actually doing the fighting.“They kept coming, and kept coming, one after the other,” Foreman said. “You just couldn’t find an easy target.”Norton was no easy target – far from it. The former Marine with the sculpted body came out of nowhere to break Ali’s jaw and hand him only his second defeat in 1973. The two would fight two more times and Ali would win both, though Norton went to his grave believing that he was robbed in their last fight in 1976 in Yankee Stadium.There was no such controversy two years earlier when Norton challenged Foreman for the heavyweight title in, of all places, Caracas, Venezuela. The fearsome Foreman, fighting one last fight before he and Ali would meet in the “Rumble in the Jungle” in Zaire, knocked Foreman down three times before the fight was mercifully called to an end in the second round.“A lot of people assumed he was afraid of me but he was never afraid of me,” Foreman said. “He got in the ring and took off his robe and I looked over there and he looks like Hercules. That wasn’t pretty at all.”Norton is gone now, never really having recovered from blows taken to the head and a car accident in the 1980s that nearly killed him. So is Frazier, and other less notable alums of the great heavyweight era like Young and Ron Lyle.Getting hit in the head by a 200-pound man can take a toll, though some weathered it better than others. I was with Leon Spinks last year when he and his wife sat in a small room at the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, where he was told his brain was shrinking because of the abuse it took in the ring and out.It was grand, though now it’s not so pretty. Ali himself is nearly mute and a trembling figure these days in Arizona, ravaged by the Parkinson’s Syndrome that did what no other opponent could do – silence The Greatest.“He’s living a more humble life now, but he’s doing good,” said Ali’s former business manager Gene Kilroy, who visited him earlier this year on Ali’s 71st birthday. “But he’s not the Ali he used to be when he would walk down the street and 5,000 people would follow as he yelled ‘Who’s the greatest of all time?’”Ali was, and of that there is little doubt. He captivated the world with his mouth outside the ring, and thrilled them with his work inside the ropes. Two wins each against Frazier and Norton and mighty upsets of Foreman and Sonny Liston were more than a career for any one man.His supporting class was awfully good too – the last batch of heavyweights to take up boxing before the lure of basketball and football took away so many good athletes from pursuing the sport. Like Norton, they were champions too, even if Ali always seemed to reign supreme.They were all young once, and they were magnificent.As another one passes, we’re all lucky to be able to remember them that way.____Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

It would have slid into oblivion in the latter part of the decade but for the James Bond films, with the original Bond, Sean Connery appearing in a Nehru-collared jacket in Dr No.The dress swam back to the future in the late 1990s – again tracing the 007 route – when comedian Mike Myers sported the Nehru jacket as Austin Powers, the ultra-hip British agent. It soon became a retro resurrect – something the Mao jacket never succeeded in doing.British Prime Minister Tony Blair has gone to town in a Nehru jacket and former South African leader Nelson Mandela has professed his fondness for the cut.last_img read more

Actor Sachin settles case of BMV car with dealer in HC

first_imgMumbai, Jun 20 (PTI) The Bombay High Court has quashed an FIR filed by actor Sachin Pilgaonkar against a woman car dealer who had allegedly cheated him by selling a BMV luxury car at a subsidised rate of Rs 34 lakh.Sachin got his money back last week after the FIR lodged by him against the car dealer was quashed recently, his lawyer Swapna Kode said today.Sachin and the car dealer mutually agreed to quash the case and the latter had deposited Rs 34 lakh in the court. This money was returned to the actor few days ago, Kode said.The actor had registered the FIR in November 2015 against Anagha Borikar who had offered to sell him the BMV car at a discounted rate of Rs 34 lakh as against the original price of the car i.e Rs 54 lakh.Pilgaonkar had met Borikar recently at a sports event in Panchgani hill station near Pune. She introduced herself as a car dealer and offered to sell him the BMV at a subsidised rate.Sachin paid the amount to the woman and she sent him the BMV car as promised earlier. However, the showroom from where the car had been sent took back the car saying that it was sent to Borikar for a test drive and that they were yet to receive the full price of the car from her.Sachin then tried calling Borikar to know what had happened to the car but she did not respond to his calls.The actor lodged a complaint with Versova police against Borikar. Later, it transpired that there were more such complaints against her for allegedly cheating people by selling cars at discounted rates.advertisementFearing arrest, Borikar had urged for pre-arrest bail in sessions court which rejected her plea. She then moved the high court and declared that she wanted to settle the matter with the actor.The high court asked her to deposit the money received from the actor with the registrar of the court. Accordingly, she deposited Rs 34 lakh.As the parties decided to mutually settle the dispute, the money was refunded to the actor after the high court quashed the case, advocate Kode said.

Mangok Mathiang’s Only Basket Of The Game Was The Game Winner For Louisville Against Virginia

first_imgMangok Mathiang scores game-winner.Louisville just finished its regular season with a 59-57 victory over No. 2 Virginia at the KFC Yum! Center. What made the Cards’ victory so remarkable was just how they got it done.After Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon put the Cavs up 57-56 on a three-pointer with 16 seconds to play, Louisville had a chance to win it. The Cavaliers doubled UL point guard Terry Rozier off of a pick-and-roll, leaving big man Mangok Mathiang wide-open. Since January 31st, Mathiang had made just one of 16 field goal attempts. He had not attempted a shot in 14 minutes today. Naturally, he swished the foul line jumper off Rozier’s feed like it was second nature.Virginia’s foul-court inbounds pass landed out of bounds, and Rozier finished things off with a free throw. Louisville’s win clinched the No. 4 seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament, and a coveted double-bye into the quarterfinals.All thanks to the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Australia who found his way into the scoring column at the most opportune time.last_img read more
