Saracens beat South Africa at Wembley

first_imgThursday Nov 19, 2009 Saracens beat South Africa at Wembley South Africa’s midweek side failed for the second time on this tour as they went down 24-23 to Saracens at Wembley on Tuesday night.The visitors had a healthy 18-6 lead at halftime, but Saracens, whose team started with 10 ‘ex’ South Africans, came back thanks to tries by Ernst Joubert and Brad Barrit, as well as a 75th minute match winning drop goal by Derick Hougaard.It sounds like a report from a Currie Cup match, but the Brendan Venter coached side (who insist they’re not London South Africa), quite simply had the better second half as they mixed it up physically and scored the points when it counted.“This was a brilliant evening for the club,” Venter said. “We have shown a lot of ambition, and with the guy hitting the crossbar, us winning in the end and with 46,000 people watching – it doesn’t get much better than this.”Springbok assistant coach Dick Muir said “We have brought a whole lot of youngsters over here. Some have shown they are world-class players and others have not.”The South African’s were impressive in the first half, but failed to turn up in the second as Saracens came back into the match. Hougaard had a horrible night with the boot, and was even booed at times as he kept persisting with badly struck drops.Ironically, it was he who finally slotted one late in the game, winning the match for a jubilant Saracens in front of a highly impressive amount of fans at the stadium.It was a strange night for South African fans though, because despite losing, all Sarries points were scored by their own countrymen. Hougaard was a Bulls legend, Joubert captained the Lions, and Barrit was a Sharks midfield warrior for years. The latter is now also eligible to play for England, so his SA days are over.We’ve included some of the big hits from the match, as there were plenty on show. Enjoy.

When Irish Water is fully established, it will be as big an organisation as the ESB, so they have an enormous task.“It’s a pity there has been such controversy and I hope they can work their way through the controversies in the short term rather than in the long-term”, he said.In relation to reports this week that Irish Water staff could earn annual bonuses of up to 19 per cent, the Fine Gael Minister said: “As I understand the performance pay or bonuses, the arrangement is similar to the arrangements that prevail in Bord Gáis Éireann, and they applied that to their subsidiary.“When that performance pay arrangement came in with the representative bodies in Bord Gáis Éireann, it was in lieu of incremental salary and the workers lost a lot of their incremental salary privileges to move onto the scheme of the bonuses.“I’m not too sure of the full detail of it, because obviously it’s a commercial semi-state that runs its own affairs”, he concluded.

EU trade chief resignation sparks successor scramble

first_imgTopics : COVID-19 breaches On Wednesday the Irish government said 60-year-old Hogan’s resignation was “the correct course of action”.Martin piled pressure on Hogan to quit after it emerged he travelled through a county in a local lockdown and flouted guidelines for a 14-day quarantine on arrival in Ireland.Hogan also attended a parliamentary golf club dinner on August 19 in breach of coronavirus restrictions on social gatherings announced just 24 hours earlier.The sporting evening was attended by around 80 people — including a cabinet minister, a supreme court judge and lawmakers from Ireland’s upper and lower houses of parliament.It is being investigated by police under legislation limiting gatherings to 50 and has prompted a series of high-level resignations, including agriculture minister Dara Calleary and deputy Senate chair Jerry Buttimer.Hogan initially declined to apologize for his attendance at the event and details of his travels across Ireland emerged fitfully.Embarrassment was compounded when it was revealed he was pulled over by an Irish police officer for using his phone while driving.”I deeply regret that my trip to Ireland … caused such concern, unease and upset,” Hogan said in his resignation statement. Rumored replacementsMartin told Ireland’s state broadcaster RTE on Thursday that he would meet his government coalition partners to discuss Hogan’s replacement.He refused to be drawn on specific names, even as rumors swirled linking past prime ministers, current cabinet ministers and European parliamentary officials to the job.But he added: “It’s fair to say that at this stage our shared objective will be that a person of very, very high caliber will be nominated by the Irish government.”Yet there is no guarantee Ireland will retain the trade portfolio, which is regarded as a key asset protecting the Republic’s interests during Brexit trade talks with Britain.Among those touted in the Irish media as potential successors are former prime minister Leo Varadkar, Foreign Minister Simon Coveney and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe.But all three hold key positions in Martin’s two-months-old coalition government, and Donohoe was recently appointed head of the eurozone group of finance ministers.Martin is also considered unlikely to want to weaken his administration, which has already been hit by a series of resignations and is facing a surge in coronavirus cases.RTE raised European Parliament vice-president Mairead McGuinness and former deputy prime minister turned MEP Frances Fitzgerald as possible replacements for Hogan.They were seen as figures who would not destabilize the coalition by prompting an unwelcome by-election.Other names said to be in the frame include the former EU ambassador to the United States, David O’Sullivan, and former prime minister Enda Kenny.The Irish Times, citing party sources, speculated candidates will come from the center-right Fine Gael party Hogan served as an Irish lawmaker under the terms of the coalition deal.It is thought the government may have already had a plan to replace Hogan — a former Irish government minister and EU agriculture commissioner — after he made a failed run for the head of the World Trade Organization in June. Ireland on Thursday scrambled to assemble potential candidates to succeed EU trade commissioner Phil Hogan after his resignation for breaching coronavirus guidelines.Hogan, one of the bloc’s most senior officials and a powerful force in Brexit talks, quit on Wednesday after a week-long stream of revelations caused rising public anger.European Commission executive vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis of Latvia has stepped up to take over temporarily. Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, who spoke to Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin by phone, asked Dublin to submit one man and one woman as candidates to succeed Hogan.Her spokesman said she wanted a replacement “rapidly”.Von der Leyen meanwhile issued a stern warning to other commissioners to comply with COVID-19 rules.As “Europeans make sacrifices and accept painful restrictions, I expect the members… to be particularly vigilant about compliance with applicable national or regional rules or recommendations”, she said in a statement.last_img read more

Sean Anthony deflects credit for tremendous night for NorthPort

first_imgOil plant explodes in Pampanga town The do-it-all forward posted an all-around performance that consisted of 22 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and seven steals in NorthPort’s 95-90 win over NLEX but Anthony said it wasn’t just him who came up big for his team.“It’s not an individual performance and I think the whole team stepped up today as you saw,” said Anthony Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “That has been the big difference for us so far, having a lot of guys step up.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“I think we have multiple guys who scored on double figures, which is huge.

Stanley Pringle also finished in double figures with 11 points with nine rebounds and two steals.Anthony may have downplayed any praises directed at him but his head coach Pido Jarencio was more than willing to give his player the due accolade.“That kind of performance is natural to him, he’s the player that really fights,” said Jarencio in Filipino. “He’s the consistent player among us and even though he came off the bench he still delivered.”Jarencio also used Anthony on a different capacity since he bumped the small forward to the power forward spot to create a speed mismatch against NLEX’ big men in Poy Erram and JR Quiñahan.Anthony admitted that he was at the disadvantage in terms of size since his 6-foot-4 frame is four-inches shorter than Erram’s and his 200-lb body weighs less than Quiñahan’s 235-lb.ADVERTISEMENT ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img MANILA, Philippines—Sean Anthony just had one of the best games of his career but he was quick to downplay his individual brilliance and instead chose to praise his teammates rather than focus on himself.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte LATEST STORIES Yeng Guiao sees NLEX 0-2 start as feeling-out phase Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem MOST READ Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations Still, he used his speed to outplay the bigger players of the Road Warriors.“As a 4, I’m undersized compared to the other 4s but I think what we lack in size we make up for in speed, heart, hustle, that kind of stuff,” said Anthony. “Mo stepped up and Brad [Guinto] had a great game last time.”“I think our bigs are doing alright and we match up with some real tough bigs in Quiñahan and Erram ad we held our own tonight.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextlast_img read more

Unexpectedly weak data on inflation retail sales cloud central banks next step

first_imgOTTAWA – A pair of unexpectedly soft economic reports are creating fresh doubts about the timing of the Bank of Canada’s next interest rate hike.For months, experts have been predicting Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz to raise his benchmark rate at next month’s meeting. But broadening economic unknowns — mostly linked to trade concerns around U.S. President Donald Trump’s protectionist agenda — have begun to lead some analysts to wonder if Poloz will stand pat on July 11.And on Friday two reports from Statistics Canada added more uncertainty to the interest rate outlook.One release by the agency found Canada’s annual inflation rose at a pace of 2.2 per cent in May for the second straight month. The number, however, was cooler than market expectations of 2.6 per cent.In the second report, Statistics Canada found that retail sales contracted in April by 1.2 per cent for the reading’s first month-to-month decline since December.“These reports kind of highlight an economy that has slowed pretty significantly from the last year or two,” Robert Kavcic, senior economist for BMO Capital Markets, said in an interview.“Given a lot of the uncertainty out there, and a little bit of a softer tone to this data, I think expectations for a July rate hike have probably come down a little bit.”Royce Mendes of CIBC Capital Markets wrote in a report that Friday’s “bad data” make it even more difficult for the Bank of Canada to hike rates in July. Mendes noted, however, that things could improve before Poloz’s July 11 meeting because more important numbers on gross domestic product and employment are still on the way.Nathan Janzen, RBC senior economist, said the combination of Friday’s figures, somewhat slower economic growth and a deteriorating tone in trade discussions with the U.S. “aren’t all that encouraging” and will make the Bank of Canada’s rate decision closer than previously thought.Ranko Berich, head analyst at Monex Canada and Monex Europe, said the central bank’s July rate decision is “now an unknown factor.”The hunt for clues into Poloz’s thinking will continue next Wednesday when he gives a speech to the chamber of commerce in Victoria, B.C.The May annual inflation number in Friday’s report followed the 2.2 per cent reading for April and 2.3 per cent for March.The main contributors to inflation last month were led by gasoline prices. Compared to a year earlier, they climbed 22.9 per cent in May and helped drive overall energy prices for the month 11.6 per cent higher.Inflation also received a lift because Canadians paid more last month for restaurants, airline tickets and mortgage interest costs.Consumers, however, paid less in May for telephone services, natural gas and digital devices and computers.The report also found the average of the Bank of Canada’s three measures of core inflation, which leave out more-volatile numbers like pump prices, slowed to 1.9 per cent last month.The core readings, which are closely monitored by the central bank, averaged 2.03 per cent in April, which was the strongest pace in six years.On retail trade, the April contraction of 1.2 per cent pulled total sales down to $49.5 billion.The April decrease was mostly due to a 4.3 per cent decline in sales by motor vehicle and parts dealers — with new car dealerships reporting a 5.1 per cent drop and used car lots seeing a contraction of 4.1 per cent.Statistics Canada said April’s unusually cool temperatures and bad weather in many parts of the country may have been to blame for the overall decline.The decrease was concentrated in the largest provinces. Sales fell 2.3 per cent in Ontario, while Quebec saw a 2.7 per cent drop.Statistics Canada, however, did release an upward revision to its retail sales data for March. The updated reading shows a 0.8 per cent increase, compared to its preliminary 0.6 per cent estimate.Friday’s reports will help feed the Bank of Canada’s deliberations as its governing council considers its next interest rate decision.For inflation, the bank can use interest rate hikes as a tool to help prevent it from climbing too high. The Bank of Canada tries to keep inflation from moving outside a range of between one and three per cent.Recent inflation readings — including Friday’s — have been hovering just above the two per cent mid-point of the bank’s target range.It’s unlikely, however, to have a significant impact on upcoming rate decisions because governor Poloz has predicted inflation to stay above two per cent for all of 2018. He’s predicted inflation to average 2.3 per cent this year before settling back down to 2.1 per cent in 2019 — in large part due to the temporary effects of higher gas prices and the introduction of minimum wage increases in some provinces.He’s raised the trend-setting interest rate three times since last July, but he hasn’t touched the rate since January. It’s been at 1.25 per cent ever since.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitterlast_img read more
