Wallabies once again too strong for Italy


first_imgSaturday Jun 20, 2009 Wallabies once again too strong for Italy The Wallabies were once again too strong for Italy as they beat them 34-12 to win their two match series, following on from their 31-8 victory in Canberra last weekend.Scoring five tries for the win, the hosts reached a 20-6 halftime lead, but needed another 30 minutes before rounding off the win with two late converted tries.“We couldn’t find our rhythm at times and that probably hurt us, especially after halftime where they are key minutes in games and we let them back into it through ill-discipline and poor direction,” Berrick Barnes said.“But overall it was a good finish to see us come through at the end.”Replacement Adam Ashley-Cooper scored twice, with hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau, center Ryan Cross, and Lachlan Turner all crossing for tries.Hatrick hero from last week, James OConnor, had a quieter match this week, finishing with two conversions and a penalty.Coach Robbie Deans felt it was a good learning experience for some newer players, after he had fielded eight changes and three positional switches from last week.“They had to work hard to create shape and we left them out there toiling away at it and they’ll be much better for the experience,” Deans said.“You just can’t replicate that sort of preparation in training, the reality is that when the adrenaline starts genuinely pumping your thought process doesn’t get tested,” he said.Italy coach Nick Mallett said he was proud of his team’s performance on a dry pitch.“We were never going to win the game, but to stay in touch with 10 minutes to go I was really proud of the guys,” Mallet said.The Wallabies host France in Sydney next weekend, while Italy travel to New Zealand to take on the All Blacks. We’ll try get longer highlights up as soon as possible.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.

Domestic abuse victims will be ‘further isolated’ without govt funding – Lifeline Inishowen


first_imgThe manager of Lifeline Inishowen has warned that failure to provide funding for the centre in Carndonagh will cause further abuse and isolation for victims in north Donegal. The centre, which helped over 46 women last year with domestic violence cases, has not been sanctioned government funding since 2011 despite the efforts of the centre over the last four years.Mary Doherty, manager of the centre, said she was ‘fearful’ the facility would have to shut its doors. “Every year we are fearful, you get to a stage where you get burnt out because we have had to fundraise every year to keep the centre opened,” she said.“We are working with a lot of families and it is such an important service to be available in the area.”Officials from the government insist the Donegal Women’s Centre in Letterkenny is suitable to cover the entire county, leaving those in Inishowen as far as 65km from the centre.“They keep telling us that we are not going to get the funding we want, that Letterkenny is fit to cover all of Donegal,” Doherty continued. “They told us that they are centralising the centre, but how can they centralise something so urgent?“It’s not like these women can make an appointment, they need the service urgently and at the time that they require it.“I question whether the government understand the issue with domestic violence because why else would they want to centralise it?“People are not going to be able to make it to Letterkenny,” she added.“Which means these women are going to have to stay in this abusive relationship that they are in. “That is the reality of the situation.”The Inishowen group are set to hand the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone, a funding petition later this month – with Doherty now urging the government to rethink their policy on the issue going forward.“Do they not realise the benefits that our centre has for peoples’ mental health and well-being on the peninsula?“A lot of people that come through our doors are on anti-depressants or abusing alcohol and a lot of them develop a massive change and start to believe in themselves again in the short-spell we provide the help that they need. “And that is the ripple effect on them and their families.“Rural areas are clearly not their priority and that is sending the wrong message to these families.“Inishowen has a population bigger than Leitrim, and by that estimation, we are a county in our own right.“They are further isolating these families from being able to change their lives and that is causing further abuse.“We are a lifeline to them, the government need to understand that.”Domestic abuse victims will be ‘further isolated’ without govt funding – Lifeline Inishowen was last modified: May 8th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CarndonaghInishowenLifeline Inishowenlast_img read more

Reminder about winter wheat management for spring of 2016


first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With recent warm weather, winter wheat has broken dormancy and begun to green up. With wheat plants no longer dormant, scouting and management of wheat fields is critical to producing high yields. As discussed earlier in the year, now is the time to plan for N applications where field conditions allow. Below is an excerpt from and a previous newsletter with recommendations for nitrogen application and rates:Spring applications of N should be made after the plants break dormancy. Although in some situations field conditions may be favorable, nitrogen applied in the late winter before plants have broken dormancy is more likely to be lost before plants can utilize it. Spring N applications should not be made before wheat has broken dormancy and begins to green up. The University of Kentucky publication “A Comprehensive Guide to Wheat Management in Kentucky” recommends: “When making a single N fertilizer application the best time is when the crop growth stage is Feekes 4-5, (Zadoks 30, usually mid-March) just before the first joint appears on the main stem and when wheat starts growing rapidly.” The UK publication goes on to say that “The rate of N fertilizer for a single application should be between 60 and 90 lb N/acre for fields with a yield potential less than 70 bu/acre and 90 to 100 lb N/acre for fields with greater yield potential.”Wheat plants begin a period of rapid growth and stem elongation once they reach Feekes Stage 6 (first node visible). The plant’s demand for N is high as the stem elongates and rapid growth begins. For optimal use of inputs and to achieve the highest yield potential, spring N should be applied in the period of time following green up prior to stem elongation.last_img read more

Wozniacki tells Liverpool: Impossible is nothing


first_imgLiverpool ‘Impossible is nothing’ – Wozniacki tips Liverpool for Premier League glory after Australian Open win Chris Burton Last updated 1 year ago 23:12 1/27/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Caroline Wozniacki Getty Liverpool Premier League The Danish tennis star has broken her duck at Grand Slam tournaments and believes her beloved Reds will taste title success in England at some stage Caroline Wozniacki has broken her Grand Slam duck and is tipping her beloved Liverpool to taste Premier League title glory in the near future.The Danish tennis star is back on top of the world rankings following a maiden major triumph at the Australian Open.Having twice been a runner-up at the US Open, Wozniacki outlasted Simona Halep, 7-6, 3-6, 6-4 in a pulsating final on Saturday in Melbourne.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player As she savoured that success, attention was diverted back to football matters and the chances of Liverpool emulating her achievement by reclaiming the English top-flight title at some stage.Wozniacki told reporters on that challenge: “Impossible is nothing.”I’m sure, eventually, it will go well for them.”The 27-year-old is a famous follower of the Reds, with regular visits to Anfield made when a busy tennis schedule allows.Having been born on July 11, 1990, Liverpool have not tasted title glory during Wozniacki’s lifetime.Their last triumph, an 18th in the club’s illustrious history, came in the 1989-90 season.There have been a few near misses since then, most notably under Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers, but the crown has remained elusive.Jurgen Klopp is the man currently charged with the task of restoring the good times to Merseyside.He has been unable to break a silverware drought thus far, with that barren run having entered a sixth year, but remains in the hunt as the 2017-18 campaign approaches the business end.Whatever happens from this point, all of those connected with Liverpool can rely on the support of Wozniacki, with her exploits having proved that persistence and hard work will be rewarded in time.

Football Ohio State quarterback JT Barretts passes through Big Ten for final


Senior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) throws a pass on the run during the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorJ.T. Barrett’s final run through the Big Ten wasn’t supposed to go like this. The redshirt senior Ohio State quarterback holds multiple conference and school records and is three touchdowns shy of matching former Purdue signal-caller Drew Brees’ Big Ten record for most total touchdowns. In his final season as a Buckeye, Barrett and a veteran-laden team, which began the season as the second-ranked team in the Associated Press preseason poll, were expected to be one of the nation’s top teams. But it won’t be easy for the first three-time team captain in program history.The quarterback’s team already has lost 31-16 to Oklahoma in the second week of the season. Penn State’s powerful offense stands in Ohio State’s way. Michigan’s stout defense has stymied Florida and Cincinnati in the first two weeks of the season. The Buckeyes must head to Iowa and Nebraska to take on tough opponents in hostile environments.Senior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) prepares to catch a snap during the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorBut perhaps most importantly, Barrett must not allow the critics who think redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins or redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow should replace him to enter his frame of mind.Luckily for Barrett, this scrutiny isn’t new. “Back in 2014, lost to Virginia Tech and I was 9-of-28 [passing]. So, I’ve been here before,” Barrett said after Saturday’s loss. “I didn’t play that bad, but I definitely didn’t play as far as putting us in the best situation to win. With that being said, I’m going to go to work and get better and I think just try to rally guys and make sure that when it comes next week that we’re at our best.”The difference between the 2014 home-opener loss to the Hokies and the recent loss to the Sooners is that Barrett no longer has youth as a reason for his struggles. When Barrett was thrust into the starting role as a redshirt freshman after quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder which required season-ending surgery, expectations were low. Early career struggles were easy to explain, and chalked up to inexperience. But now, in 2017, Barrett has no such excuse. He holds 22 Ohio State records including most touchdowns in both a season and career, single-season passing efficiency, and total yards in a season.If someone with Barrett’s experience struggles, like he did against Oklahoma when he completed 19-of-35 passes for 183 yards, including an interception, he earns criticism. Barrett isn’t the only player who deserves criticism.  The six-player group of starting H-backs and wideouts — Parris Campbell, K.J. Hill, Johnnie Dixon, Binjimen Victor, Austin Mack and Terry McLaurin— has done little to help its quarterback. But as Barrett and coach Urban Meyer say, this comes with the position. “When you’re winning, I get too much credit. [That is] when I try to give that credit to the guys around me because that’s who I need — 10 other guys to play well. When we lose, I mean, I’m the one to blame too,” Barrett said. “It’s the life of a quarterback.”Regardless of how much blame Barrett deserves, he must overcome any inner doubt. Just two games — one against Army Saturday afternoon and another on Sept. 23 versus UNLV — stand between Ohio State and the remainder of its conference schedule. In Barrett’s time as a starter, Ohio State has lost just two games in the Big Ten. Michigan State defeated the Buckeyes 17-14 in 2015 to hand Barrett his first loss in more than a year. Last season, Penn State upset Ohio State, 24-21. In 2014, Barrett didn’t lose a game to a Big Ten opponent the entire season and was primarily responsible for Ohio State claiming the first-ever College Football Playoff National Championship.Ohio State redshirt senior quarterbacks J.T. Barrett heads to Ohio Stadium prior to the 2017 season opener on Sept. 9. The No.2 Buckeyes lost to No. 5 Oklahoma 31-16. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorNegative comments and judgements won’t matter if Ohio State wins, even if it isn’t always pretty. Meyer still believes in Barrett despite the offense’s inability to find an optimal flow and pace. “Any decisions about any personnel is strictly who gives us the best opportunity to win, whether it be right guard, quarterback. And it’s always been the case,” Meyer said Monday. “Right now it’s not even a question.”Neither Army, UNLV nor Rutgers — Ohio State’s next three opponents — has especially potent defenses. But Barrett must retake control of an offense that has looked like anything but the potent offense Meyer’s teams normally possess. Barrett played unexpectedly in 2014 because he was one of the few healthy options at quarterback. That isn’t the case in Barrett’s final run. Haskins and Burrow present themselves as intriguing options who have been in the program for years.The mystery and unknown invoke imagination. “Just how good is Haskins’ deep ball?” some wonder. “Maybe a quarterback change is just what a sputtering Ohio State offense needs,” critics say. If Barrett has his way, no one will ever know. read more

Womens Basketball Ohio State unable to stop Gustafson in 7852 loss to


Ohio State freshman guard Janai Crooms (3) listens to coach Kevin McGuff during a timeout in the game against Penn State on Feb 6. Ohio State won 78-73. Credit: Cori Wade | Lantern PhotographerThe Ohio State women’s basketball team could not stop Iowa Hawkeye senior forward Megan Gustafson enough to get the win on Sunday. The reigning Big Ten Player of the Year torched the Buckeye defense, shooting 14-19 from the field for 29 points along with 16 rebounds to give the No. 16 Hawkeyes (19-5, 10-3 Big Ten) the 78-52 victory against Ohio State (10-12, 6-7 Big Ten). Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff gave all the credit to Gustafson for beating the Buckeyes. “She’s an incredibly efficient player,” McGuff said. “She had 29 points on only 19 shots, so she really knows how to play the game. She understands angles, and she gives her teammates a great target to throw the ball too. And then she also knows how to function within their offense well to get the ball into the basket.”  Despite being down 19-9 early in the first quarter, the Buckeyes fought back in the second quarter, led by freshman forward Aaliyah Patty, who came off the bench to score eight points in that quarter, 11 points total on the game. Gustafson was held to only four points total that quarter.This effort helped Ohio State close the Iowa lead from 19-9 to 31-27 and went into the locker room at halftime with momentum on its side. However, the third quarter was where the game started to unravel for the Buckeyes. Led by Gustafson’s  15 points, Iowa scored 27 to effectively put the game out of reach.Freshman forward Dorka Juhasz felt Ohio State did its best to stop Gustafson, but the senior forward’s experience was a key factor in her success.“In the beginning, I thought that we were guarding her well,” Juhasz said. “But in the second half, that stopped working and we couldn’t get there in time to steal passes and that meant she scored. We knew that she was a great player, and we knew that she would come out of the locker room after halftime and she’s a senior, so she was going to execute.”Juhasz was one of the lone bright spots from the starting lineup for Ohio State. Despite still recovering from an ankle injury sustained back in January against Michigan State, Juhasz had her second consecutive double double, this time scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds. While not feeling 100 percent, Juhasz still felt she made a lot of improvement in Sunday’s game.“I would not say that I am back to full health like before the injury,” Juhasz said. “It’s always worse after the games, but during the game I was not even thinking about it.”Sunday’s game saw very quiet performances from three members of the Buckeye starting lineup. Redshirt senior guards Carmen Grande and Carly Santoro did not find the basket and redshirt senior forward Makayla Waterman put up five points, all of which came in the fourth quarter, with six rebounds.McGuff said Iowa had a very good defensive game plan that factored into limiting its key scorers, but the blame falls on a lack of execution.“We rely on those guys so much and they’ve been so consistently good,” McGuff said. “They just didn’t have the same night as normal for us. We competed for most part of the game, but our focus on execution was not where it needed to be. Against a team like Iowa, you’ve got to keep up with them by scoring the ball, because they are so good on offense.”Freshman guard Janai Crooms had another solid performance scoring 10 points with a season high seven assists. Patty, redshirt senior guard Adreana Miller and sophomore guard Jensen Caretti combined for 25 points out of 52 off the bench. Miller scored 11 and was 2-4 from the 3-point line while Caretti sunk a 3 in the first quarter. McGuff praised the bench for their efforts and gave them credit for keeping the team in the game.“I thought our bench stepped up and really gave us a lot of energy,” McGuff said. “When we substituted, we seemed to play with a little more energy and gave us more offense, so they did a great job.” Ohio State  will travel to face Rutgers on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Rutgers Athletic Center. read more
