We have a lot of business right now.

Hurricanes end Crusaders unbeaten run

first_imgPhoto: PhotoSport Hurricane Ngani Laumape takes on the Crusaders’ line. The home team clawed their way back from a 12-7 halftime deficit to outscore the Crusaders four tries to three and exact revenge for their 20 -12 defeat in May.The win means the Hurricanes will now head to Canberra to play the Brumbies in next weekend’s quarter final, while the Crusaders return to Christchurch for a potential match-up against the Highlanders.The Hurricanes had been forced into major shakeup of their backline immediately before the game with flyhalf Beauden Barrett a late withdrawal due to illness, while Vince Aso was injured during the warmup.Otere Black came off the bench to play flyhalf, Jordie Barrett moved from fullback to centre, Nehe Milner-Skudder switched to fullback from the wing, with Wes Goosen coming onto the right wing from the bench.Converted centre Barrett had a strong night for the Hurricanes kicking a penalty, converting all four tries and crossing the line for his team as well.The Crusaders looked in ominous early form with two quick tries to Seta Tamanivalu but the Canterbury side lost momentum as a penalty count saw the game swing back to the home team.The Chiefs 28-10 win over a second-string Brumbies fifteen in Hamilton earlier in the day means they now travel to Capetown to take on the Stormers next week.The Australian conference champions rested some of their biggest names for the game but will be back to full strength for the playoffs against the Hurricanes.Damian McKenzie dominated the scoring for the Chiefs with a try and 13 points from the boot as the home side battled to a scrappy victory over the ACT Brumbies at Waikato Stadium.The Brumbies’ loss means Australian Super Rugby sides have lost all 25 matches against New Zealand opposition this seasonHowever, it was an historic day for Japan’s Sunwolves who upset the Auckland Blues 48-21 in Tokyo in their final match of the season.Centre Timothy Lafaele scored a hat-trick of tries as the Sunwolves fought back from a 21-5 deficit to earn their first victory over a New Zealand side.The match was played in sweltering conditions in the Japanese capital with temperatures reaching more than 40 degrees Celsius prior to kickoff.While both sides were out of playoff contention, the Blues were full of confidence, having beaten the British and Irish Lions in their last competitive match last month.The Sunwolves scored six tries in the second half – the most tries they have scored in a game in their short Super Rugby existence.”You can’t take anything for granted in this competition,” said Blues coach Tana Umaga.”They just wanted it more. That’s all down to attitude.”We lacked a bit of focus on our game and when you haven’t got the attitude right we get what we got today.”last_img read more

As a Union, the challenges are immense and the body has better chances of achieving more on the world stage by working together,” said Sapias.In going forward, the New Irelander said in his capacity as the regional head, he will put forward a case for at least two Oceania teams to participate in the Hong Kong Cup of Nation’s tournament.“This is a strong competition for tier two nations and depending on how hard I lobby, I hope to gain access for Papua New Guinea to be one of those nations,” he added.

Emilio Calatayud, juvenile judge: “The mobile is another drug exactly like heroin”

first_imgThe juvenile judge of Granada Emilio Calatayud has reviewed the most pressing problems that children suffer today. Excessive alcohol consumption, drug addiction, bullying or the influence of new technologies are repetitive issues in their work with young people. Image: Dreams Time. The use of new technologies especially reveals the judge. “The mobile is another drug exactly like heroin, marijuana or alcohol,” he says in an interview on Chain Morning Cope. “I have never given a cigarette to my son with two years. I’m tired of seeing parents so that the child does not give them the can in the bar, they shake the tablet or mobile at two years,” complains Calatayud . The judge also warns of drug addiction, which is occurring at shorter ages and with a new feature: you mix them between different types of narcotics. This causes that there are boys from 12 years that have become sick and with few solutions beyond fulfilling the internment after committing criminal acts: “With drug mixtures, we have a lot of psychopathic and much schizophrenic boy, and we will have a lot tared in a few years. ” The nature of bullying also worries Calatayud because of the little information that comes to the judges. “It covers a lot,” he explains, referring not only to classmates, but to parents and school leaders. He continues to insist on his controversial recommendation to parents to “violate the privacy of their children through mobile phones”, and calls for a return to the principles of authority so that parents and teachers are more respected by minors.last_img read more
