The 2017 Lions squad have arrived in New Zealand

first_imgFOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERESam Warburton provided a lighter note at the Lions’ first press conference on New Zealand soil. When asked about the traditional Maori welcome the Lions received at Auckland Airport, the captain quipped: “I have to be careful with the hongi because I’ve got a bigger nose than most people!”Greeting: Sam Warburton receives a hongi in welcome at Auckland Airport. Photo: Getty ImagesThe Lions responded with a rendition of Welsh hymn Calon Lan. They sang Scottish and Irish songs at Sunday’s farewell so perhaps there will be an English number during the welcome at Waitangi Treaty Grounds on Sunday. Choir practice is clearly paying off.Warburton also revealed that “New Zealand is my favourite place to play rugby outside Wales”. He should get his first opportunity on this tour against the NZ Provincial Barbarians. The team will be named at 7am NZ time tomorrow, 8pm in the UK today, with the 14 players who originally convened with the squad two and a half weeks ago expected to make up the bulk of the starting XV. Name game: Bryn Gatland in Super Rugby action for the Blues. Photo: Getty ImagesAs for the opposition, Warburton is well aware of one player – the boss’s son, Bryn Gatland. “I know their No 10 pretty well,” he said. “I’ve known Bryn for six or seven years, when he was first around the (Wales) squad. The Welsh lads know Bryn very well. He showed a lot of courage last year to kick the drop-goal to win (promotion for North Harbour). You have to give him credit for that, and he’s got a good bloodline as well.”More familiar foe will follow after the Barbarians opener, and debates will continue to rage, but once the first whistle goes on Saturday night the rugby should rightly take centre stage. What happened when the 2017 British & Irish Lions touched down in New Zealand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Tough prep: Training numbers were limited for the Lions in the first two weeks. Photo: Getty Images Stephen Jones has written a column in the current issue of Rugby World bemoaning the fact that too often coaches dominate the build-up to games with tit-for-tat comments directed at each other.It’s an interesting read – pick up a copy if you haven’t already – and seems pertinent given that the British & Irish Lions arrived in New Zealand to find that Steve Hansen has said he would have rejected the tour schedule had it been presented to his All Blacks team.TO FIND OUT WHAT’S IN THE LATEST ISSUE OF RUGBY WORLD, CLICK HEREAll Blacks coach Hansen believes arriving on a Wednesday and playing on a Saturday is a farcical situation for the Lions to find themselves in, telling The Times: “You’d want to be there a week minimum. It’s nicer to be longer than that. When we tour we have full control over when we leave the country.”Hansen also suggested that the Lions should have sent the majority of their squad out to New Zealand at least a week earlier, with those involved in the Aviva Premiership and Guinness Pro12 finals to follow later. Had that been the arrangement, the Lions’ farewell dinner on Sunday night would have been sparsely attended!Sing song: The Lions respond to their Maori welcome with a Welsh hymn. Photo: Getty ImagesWhen Hansen’s comments were put to tour manager John Spencer, he responded by saying: “The schedule was set by the New Zealand Rugby Union – that’s a contractual thing and has been for many years. We don’t mind the schedule at all. The fact we’re playing the Super Rugby sides is exactly what the coaches want, to prepare sides for the Test. The thing we’re disappointed in on the domestic side is the preparation time. But that’s our lot, that’s what we have to react to.”The schedule has long come under scrutiny – Rugby World has criticised the lack of preparation time from the off – but there’s little point debating it now. We all know they should have had at least two more weeks together as an entire squad before flying out but it’s doubtful that a similar situation will be avoided for the 2021 trip to South Africa, such is the self-interest of all the parties involved and the unwillingness to compromise.last_img read more

Ali Williams plays superhero to break up a fight

first_imgTuesday May 27, 2008 Ali Williams plays superhero to break up a fight All Black and Crusaders player Ali Williams, who is often seen as a villain on and off the field, is being hailed as a hero after breaking up a fight in Christchurch on the weekend. Williams and a couple of team mates were out on the town after the Hurricanes game when trouble broke out. “There was this group of 20 to 25 year olds all arguing… Then all of a sudden a brawl just started between about six people and then Ali Williams rushed up and saved the day,” says eye witness Max Rooney. The big lock, no stranger to off-field misbehaviour himself, is shown getting in amongst a group of five or six brawling young men, and stopping the fight. All the action was captured on camera phone and released on ONE News evening edition.:: Ali Williams Related Posts :: All White ridiculous Haka Sebastien Chabal breaks Ali Williams’ jaw Controversial quick throw in results in a try Ali Williams big hitting in the Super 14 Plays of the Week Round 10 & 11 2007 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Vietnam refugee leader arrested for protesting ICE crimes

first_imgNancy just after being released from jail Oct 9.Philadelphia — Nancy Nguyen, Executive Director of VietLead, a Philadelphia-based Vietnamese refugee organization, was handcuffed and arrested Oct. 8 as she was changing her one-year-old baby’s diaper in her Philadelphia home. Her arrest involved the cooperation of several federal and local agencies, including the Philadelphia Police Department — in a city that claims sanctuary status.Her so-called crime? Not murder, not kidnapping, nothing to do with drugs, no violence was involved, not even property damage. Her actions weren’t even a felony. The “crimes” that set several law enforcement agencies in motion were — littering and trespassing — 250 miles away in Richmond, Va., a month earlier.  Arrested for organizing for migrants, refugeesOn Sept. 8, migrant and refugee activists in cities from Little Saigon, Calif., to Miami to Washington, D.C., denounced newly-installed Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Tony Pham. Two dozen organizations signed a statement condemning Trump’s appointment as a racist maneuver. They demanded Pham “bring human rights home” by addressing ICE’s many abuses: “We raise our voices as refugees and the descendants of refugees — from Viet Nam, Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala . . . as witnesses of the wretched treatment of our refugee sisters and brothers from around the world by the Trump administration, by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and by ICE.” (tinyurl.com/y3pf96lp)A few activists descended on Pham’s home near Richmond, Va., to plant tombstones and signs on his lawn exposing ICE’s incarceration of migrant children. The head of ICE, which is guilty of imprisoning children and subjecting incarcerated migrant women to forced sterilization, responded with crocodile tears that protesters could “target a mom and target children” at his home. (WRIC.com/news, Sept. 15)In line with President Trump’s many Twitter calls for protesters to be punished, Pham and other government officials at several levels conspired to arrest Nguyen, threatening to extradite her to a Virginia jail. In response, VietLead, Juntos and other migrant and refugee organizations and their supporters mobilized and pulled together jail support outside police headquarters, where Nguyen was being held in one of dozens of cold and crowded basement jail cells. The Philadelphia Police Department repeatedly gave the public misleading and false information to deter efforts to free her. A nationally organized media campaign #FreeNancy resulted in hundreds of phone calls to city and police officials. She was finally released 21 hours after her arrest. ICE under Pham, same old ICETony Pham, of Vietnamese descent, was named head of ICE on Aug. 25. At a protest of his appointment, Cat Bao Le, executive director of SEAC Village — a South East Asian American community in North Carolina — said that the strategy of using “people that appear like they come from the community” was a well-known tactic of police, ICE and other agencies.“We know that Tony Pham is being used as a puppet of this white supremacist regime. . . . Tony Pham is not our family, and he does not represent us.” Directing her comments to Pham, Cat Bao Le continued, “We will not let this administration use Vietnamese refugees as a wedge to further divide us from our siblings.” (tinyurl.com/yy2cdjqv)Pham, his mother and two sisters were put on a plane to the U.S. 11 days before the liberation of Saigon in 1975. His father, a military general in the U.S.-supported puppet regime of South Vietnam, fled to the U.S. soon after. Tin Nguyen, board member of SEAC Village, said, “Let’s be clear, if Tony Pham tried to come to the United States today, he would be rejected by the same Trump administration he works for.” (tinyurl.com/yycshyyc)The attack on the leader of VietLead is a threat leveled at all activist organizations, a warning that federal government officials are raising the level of repression. Nguyen’s arrest and incarceration reveals that, from ICE on down to local city police, the state is threatening working class, Black, Brown and migrant leaders who resist the inhumanity of the current administration in Washington. The misdemeanor charges against Nguyen are an attack on the constitutional right to assembly and free speech — the people’s right to protest. The charges must be dropped now! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Police raid blocks broadcasting of satirical TV news programme

KBC, which is owned by the El Khabar media group, must be allowed to recover its equipment without delay, RSF said. Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Organisation May 12, 2021 Find out more The raid was carried out on 19 June on the grounds that the studios were previously used by Atlas TV, a channel closed by the authorities in 2015. Ten episodes of the satirical programme, called “Ki hna ki ennass” and hosted by Mustapha Kessaci, have so far been broadcast. After the raid, the public prosecutor’s office summoned seven people for questioning including KBC director Mahdi Benaissa and the building’s owners. The owners have been arrested. “We are, to say the least, puzzled by the raid’s timing,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk. “While the legality of the judicial initiative cannot be disputed, it seems the authorities decided to act at the very moment that the studios were being used to record a current affairs programme. “It is therefore fair to ask whether they were not in fact targeting the programme’s outspoken content, especially as the pro-government channel Numédia News used the studios a few weeks ago without any problem. We call on the authorities to let KBC recover its equipment from the studios so that the programme can resume being recorded in a completely independent manner.” This latest case affecting the El Khabar media group comes just days after a court provisionally suspended the sale of part of the group’s shares to Ness Prod, a privately-owned Algerian company. In a statement, RSF said it was shocked by the decision and urged the authorities to respect the wishes of El Khabar’s owners and journalists. Algeria is ranked 129th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. last_img read more
