But everything else you hear about the wonder that is John Eales is true.The Queenslander showed remarkable lineout athleticism at a young age, with England’s Paul Ackford highlighting the youngster’s ability to make space for himself in such a claustrophobic area shortly before the first of Eales’s 86 caps in 1991.Eales was just 20 when he made his Test debut and, though his scrum power and general mobility took a little while to develop, within months he was playing in a World Cup.Coach Bob Dwyer, who had quickly abandoned an experiment to turn him into a No 8, was vindicated by a series of outstanding performances. Together with Rod McCall, Eales won the lineouts 28-2 against Wales and his try-saving tackle on England fly-half Rob Andrew in the final drew gasps – 6ft 7in locks weren’t meant to do that!

Named Wallaby captain at the start of the Greg Smith era in 1996, Eales was to lead his country 55 times – putting him ninth on the all-time list. His high point was a second world title back on British soil in 1999, when Eales became one of only six men at that point to achieve a World Cup double.He had time to beat the British & Irish Lions in 2001 before retiring as the most capped second-row in history, a record since surpassed.Wallaby team-mate Jason Little once said: “It got to the point where I thought Ealsey was going to kick off, catch it himself, go all the way, score the try and kick the goal.” Australia Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guidelast_img read more

Wales’ latest Kiwi describes ‘maze’ his head has been in after testing times

first_imgFriday Dec 6, 2019 Wales’ latest Kiwi describes ‘maze’ his head has been in after testing times Cardiff Blues centre Willis Halaholo has provided an update on social media following surgery for a season-ending anterior cruciate ligament injury.ADVERTISEMENTThis marks the end of what has been a tumultuous couple of weeks for the 29-year-old. His selection for Wales under new head coach Wayne Pivac to face the Barbarians last weekend was met by opprobrium by fans and former players, due to the fact that he had only recently qualified for Wales on residency after being born and bred in New Zealand.WATCH: Southland score sensational try after big Willis Halaholo bump off Halaholo took umbrage not only to the fact that this was being criticised in this age of rugby, but that it was largely directed at him rather than Johnny McNicholl, who was also called up to the squad, or even Hadleigh Parkes, both of whom were raised in New Zealand.Last message from me. All the doubters haters and people that don’t think I belong here u got your wish👍🏾 u got 9months to get better especially the ones that think it’s ok for the other two Kiwi born to represent Wales but not me 🤔— Willis Halaholo (@whalaholo) November 26, 2019However, only days after being selected, the former Hurricanes back suffered the ACL injury in the Challenge Cup loss to Leicester Tigers at Cardiff Arms Park, bringing an end to his season.In the wake of the injury, he responded on Twitter to those that had been against his selection. Now after his surgery, he said on Instagram: “My Head’s been through a Maze the past week but I know I’ve been through a lot worse than this.”The @NuffieldVale hospital nurses and staff have been Lush💙. Genuine care and conversations of support. I’m still not use to going places and random people already knowing about my life but it’s been cool. Or maybe I been talking to much Post Op🤦🏾‍♂️💉💊😂😂🤯— Willis Halaholo (@whalaholo) December 4, 2019The centre thanked those that have supported him through what has undoubtedly been a testing couple of weeks. He also said that this has been the first major injury of his career, which would have only made the situation worse, but vows to make a “dangerous comeback”.ADVERTISEMENTDespite this setback now, there is no doubt that his selection was merited purely from a playing perspective, as the explosive centre has terrorised defences in the Pro14 since he arrived in Cardiff in 2016, and he will surely feature in Pivac’s side when he has recovered.A quick look at Halaholo in action for Southland a few years back Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

For the refurbishment of a terrace located in a classic house in Buenos Aires.Marantz focused on converting the roof into a new recreational spot by designing an area with green spaces, an orchard with its own irrigation system, and by expanding its living area by adding a grill and deck. A light structure was added, linking the two roof levels with a staircase that connects and saves space. This system adds a canopy where needed, and is left open for the areas that need natural light, like the orchard and part of the deck.

Education cuts spark big protests in Spain

first_imgTeachers, students, parents’ associations and public servants in the state education system protesting on Oct. 26.Tens of thousands of students, teachers and parents in Spain marched Oct. 24 to protest cutbacks in education and a new education “reform” act that cuts funding of universities, raises tuition fees, places obstacles on university study grants and requires annual exams for students.Thousands of students will be forced into vocational programs instead of university studies in a country with over 27 percent unemployment overall and more than 50 percent among youth. Students called for a general strike if their demands for an end to cutbacks, totaling 6 million euros over the last two years, aren’t met.More than 60,000 people marched in Madrid, where barricades were put up at the Somosaguas campus of the University Complutense and the Autonomous University of Madrid. Major militant demonstrations also took place in Valencia, Alicante and Castellón.The disputed law, called the Organic Law to Better the Quality of Teaching, is also known as the Wert Law, after Education Minister José Ignacio Wert.The third day of a protest called by the Students Union and backed by Spain’s major labor unions saw 170,000 demonstrate in Barcelona in defense of public education and to continue full instruction in Catalán. The new Wert Law would give greater weight to the Spanish language, especially in regions where the people speak a different first language, as in Galicia, Catalonia and the Basque Country.University students insist that the changes in the law regarding the cost of courses and grants mean that many people cannot afford higher education. They calculate that at the University Complutense in Madrid about 3,500 students will not be able to pay for their next semester. The State Platform for Public Schools supported the demonstrations.While Spain is officially out of recession, further protests against austerity may be as large as last year’s Nov. 7 strike, when more than 3 million school and university students took to the streets.Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Spain’s two biggest soccer teams, Real Madrid and Barcelona, are the world’s richest clubs by income.Austerity for students, many of whom will be added to the ranks of Spain’s unemployed, is infuriating to the Spanish working class, who complain that charges are often dropped against members of the Spanish royal family who are under investigation for embezzling millions of euros of public funds.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU360’s Super Bowl Predictions

first_imgTCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Benton McDonald is a senior journalism and political science double major from Austin, Texas. He has worked for TCU360 since his freshman year and is currently the executive editor. TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Twitter ReddIt Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ It will be a battle of young vs old in Sundays Super Bowl. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File) Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Settlement reached between TCU, former professor in discrimination lawsuit printIt will be a battle of young vs. old in Sundays Super Bowl. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)Super Bowl LIII will kick off on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. from Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta and we asked the TCU360 Sports Staff to give their prediction for the big game.Robbie VaglioWith Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh in the middle, the Rams will be able to pressure Tom Brady in ways he has not experienced this postseason. The Rams defense is not going to be walked over by Brady and the Patriots like the Chiefs or the Chargers this postseason. The Patriots, who have allowed 4.9 yards per carry this season, will have to limit LA’s third-best rushing attack in the league, and I don’t see that happening because their defense has proven to be vulnerable throughout the year. Brady will put up big numbers to keep this game close as he has done the past two Super Bowls, but if the Rams can turn this game into a shootout, they should come out on top. Prediction: Rams 35, Patriots 30.Benton McDonaldEvery team relishes at the chance to be an underdog. The New England Patriots have not had that chance much over the last two decades and are jumping at the opportunity to be one on Sunday. Even though they are the favorites in Las Vegas, Belicheck and Brady are going to ride the “Nobody believes in us” narrative all the way to their sixth parade. Pats 31, Rams 17.Nick Stephens Few players in the NFL are as renowned for their antics as Rams cornerback Aqib Talib. His first chain snatch from Michael Crabtree was legendary and then, for good measure, he decided to do it again. The second time Crabtree even taped it to himself, but Talib found a way. Yet two things stand in Talib’s way this time around: first, he spent a season with the Patriots and has been quite complimentary of them in the buildup to the game. Second, New England doesn’t seem like the type of team to have many chain-wearers anyway. That said, don’t doubt Talib’s ability to find a chain to snatch, whether it’s on the field or in the stands. If you’re attending the game, tuck that chain in and remember that no one is safe.Olivia MoodyMy prediction for the Super Bowl goes a little something like this…I predict I won’t be watching the game and here’s why. Have you ever heard the quote “cheaters never win?” This is a quote I grew up valuing and holding near and dear to my heart. Being a competitive athlete, this was a constant reminder to work hard and gain success the right way. Tom Brady must not practice his football skills with this quote in mind. Brady practically resides in the Super Bowl and it astonishes me that his ball deflating skills have brought him this far. I predict that I will not be watching the game, but I also predict that the Super Bowl will prove my childhood morals wrong again…because cheaters always win in the Super Bowl.Kennedy StadlerI used to not mind the Rams, but as a Saints fan, they now join my list of teams I’d rather see fall off the face of the Earth than win a Super Bowl. As much as I don’t want to see Tom Brady with a sixth ring, I hope the Rams lose in a heart-wrenching fashion, perhaps on a missed call. Patriots win 28-24.Hunter InceI believe that Super Bowl LIII will have more than 105 million television viewers. We have seen a decrease in viewership every year since 2015 and even saw a seven percent decrease in viewership from 2017 to 2018. The last time the Rams made a Super Bowl was 2002 when they were located in St. Louis. The only time that the Los Angeles Rams made the Super Bowl was in 1980 where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19. The fans like seeing freshness in the Super Bowl and all of America who isn’t a fan of the Patriots will be rooting for the blue and gold on Super Bowl Sunday. Another reason that the television viewership will rise again is that of the halftime performance. A lot of viewers will be drawn in with Maroon 5 being the headliner during the halftime show. The viewership may not increase much from the 103.4 million viewers in 2018 but with the Rams not being a usual in the Super Bowl and Maroon 5 being the halftime headliner, we will see at least a slight increase in television viewership during Super Bowl LIII.Branson NelsonThe Rams are good. Very good. They are here because of the blown call we have all seen 1,000 times, but we can’t ignore their 13-3 record, Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley. Unfortunately for L.A., they have to play Brady and Belichick. I’ve picked against the Patriots too many times to make the same mistake again. This will be close from start to finish, but Tom gets his sixth ring. 34-28, Pats.Jack WallaceAfter one of the longest-tenured runs in the history of modern football, the so-called “goat” of the National Football League, Tom Brady, will finally fall (again) in the big game. The Los Angeles Rams, spearheaded by Jared Goff and Todd Gurley, have had tremendous help from star wide receiver Brandin Cooks, defensive lineman Aaron Donald, and the youngest head coach to coach a Super Bowl, Sean McVay. The real question is, who will the refs favor? The scandal-ridden New England Patriots, or the team who supposedly “robbed” the New Orleans Saints in the conference title game? I vote L.A. Rams win it in a tight one, 35-31.Reese PricePart of me says that the New England Patriots will come out on top for the sixth time and win the Super Bowl this year and another part of me has a feeling that the Los Angeles Rams will surprise Tom Brady and give him and his team more than they can handle. I don’t really keep up much with either of these teams, therefore I don’t have a strong opinion at all. However, the Super Bowl is always such a fun time of the year because each football lover has an opinion that they want to voice. Hearing everyone’s different predictions about this game is always so interesting and I know that this game will definitely be a good one to watch.Sam FristachiAs much as I hate to say this, I think the New England Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl. As a New York Jets fan, I am hoping that the Los Angeles Rams will come out with a win when the game is over, but the truth is, the Rams do not have the experience the Patriots have when it comes to Super Bowls. The Rams have the talent to win the Super Bowl, but with Todd Gurley not at 100 percent, it is going to be hard to pull out a win. I think the Patriots will win by a late touchdown and Tom Brady will be a Super Bowl champion once again.Mario Aquino I’m going to go out on a limb here and say there won’t be much offense in the game until the second half. Although the Patriots’ offensive line has been stellar throughout the playoffs, Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh will get to Brady sooner rather than later. The Rams will likely go up by two scores at the half. Maroon 5 will be mediocre at best in the halftime show, but Travis Scott will be amazing and no one above the age of 35 will have the slightest clue of what’s going on. There will undoubtedly be some sort of a comeback that will likely be assisted by the officials in some way, shape or form. Belichick and Brady will get ring No. 6, the entire city of New Orleans will erupt in a frenzy and Mardi Gras will start a month early to drown away the sorrows of what could’ve been. Final score: Patriots 35, Rams 28.Conner McBride Predictions are always difficult with the New England Patriots. They never seem to have the talent necessary to win a game, but they have the greatest coach and quarterback we’ve seen in the Super Bowl era. That being said, the talent gap is probably at the highest it’s ever been on both sides of the ball in a Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams went all in this year with their young quarterback still on his rookie deal and so far it’s paid off. With names like Todd Gurley and Brandon Cooks on offense and Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and Aaron Donald on defense, it’s hard to see the game even being close. With that being said, Tom Brady will make enough plays to keep the Patriots in the game, but ultimately the Rams star power will just be too much to handle for the Patriots. Rams 31, Patriots 27.
