Germany to face Samoa in Rugby World Cup qualifier

first_imgMartyn Thomas reports on the turmoil surrounding German rugby as the national team prepare for a World Cup qualifier against Samoa Clear vision: Germany coach Pablo Lemoine is urging his team to focus on the task at hand (Getty Images)It was against this backdrop that the players prepared for Saturday’s match against Portugal, and it was perhaps unsurprising that despite a bright start Germany appeared weighed down by the pressure of the occasion as they fell 13-3 behind. Everyone knew their hopes of finding a new backer depended on victory.“Before we started training ten days ago, we talked with Kobus (Potgieter) about putting the political problems on the side,” Lemoine said. “I come from a union (Uruguay) that eight years ago was in the same position as German rugby is at the moment.“I believe the only way to get out of that situation is through working hard on rugby, really hard on rugby. Trying to put the people together behind one objective.“World Rugby supports us, German rugby supports us but the only thing we can do – the coaches and the players – is work. Work inside the field and try to show everyone we’re working in one way.”It is understood that World Rugby will cover the cost of Germany’s travel to Samoa for the first leg of their play-off on 30 June, but the DRV will have to bear the cost of hosting the Pacific Islanders two weeks later.Not everyone at the union was confident on Saturday night that those funds could be found but the importance of the tie means Germany will fulfil it whatever the long-term impact on the DRV.On target: Raynor Parkinson’s late penalty was key to Germany’s win (Getty Images)“We will start training Monday, train two or three days, have one day off then take the plane,” Lemoine insisted.There were those in Heidelberg who were disappointed by the nature of Germany’s victory on Saturday, adamant that a team from a division below should have been dispatched far easier.But from those inside the camp there was only an admission that a big step forward had been taken. The majority of the players and coaches who will lead the team into their clash with Samoa have had their livelihoods taken from them, while the union has lost its primary source of funding. Germany to face Samoa in Rugby World Cup qualifier The future of rugby union in Germany remains an uncertain one, but the national team at least put a turbulent week to one side as they maintained their unlikely hopes of qualifying for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.Germany’s prize for a nerve-shredding 16-13 victory over Portugal – the hosts having trailed by ten points early in the second half – is a two-legged play-off against Samoa for a place in Pool A of the quadrennial tournament in Japan.It would represent a sizeable shock were the European side to beat the 16th best team in the world over 160 minutes, but they are allowing themselves to dream.“(We have) 100% chance, to win,” Germany head coach Pablo Lemoine said following the match in Heidelberg. “If not, we don’t go. We stay here.” For many of the 2,300 fans who flocked to the Fritz-Grunebaum-Sportpark on Saturday, though, defeating the Portuguese was cause enough to celebrate.Victory ensured the hosts earned a modicum of retribution for the loss they suffered against Russia, secured via two tries in the final ten minutes, at this stage of World Cup qualification four years ago. Yet the race for Japan 2019 can seem a trivial one when set against the troubles German rugby is currently facing.The German federation (DRV) had put on a united front ahead of the Portugal match, recalling 14 of the players, as well as the coaches, who had made themselves unavailable for this year’s Rugby Europe Championship due to the stand-off between the union and Dr Hans-Peter Wild.Dr Wild has ploughed millions of euro into rugby in Germany via his WILD Academy, but revealed in an interview last week that he would withdraw his funding for that project, the club Heidelberger RK and the DRV to concentrate on Stade Francais, the French club he bought last summer.Rumours of the Capri-Sun owner’s intentions had reached those employed by the academy by last Monday. Two days later, the players and coaches were called into a meeting where their worst fears were confirmed – Wild will pay them until the end of the year, but then they will be without a job. All together now: Germany play the first of their two games against Samoa on 30 June (Getty Images) center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Samoa Not that the dark cloud hanging over the sport in the country will be allowed to distract the squad from the task at hand. “Control the controllables,” Potgieter, the architect of Germany’s rugby renaissance, said. “If we can’t control it, we can’t do anything about it, so forget about it.”Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Rugby fans in England could be back in stadiums from 17 May

first_img Fans could be celebrating in stadiums in England from mid-May (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Lions are currently considering several options, including the tour going ahead behind closed doors in South Africa and moving it to Australia. But the possibility of playing games in front of fans in the UK could make a home ‘tour’ more attractive to organisers, although there is obviously no guarantee supporters would be allowed in stadiums.It will all depend on infection rates and the number of vaccines being rolled out – and the Lions will have to make a decision without knowing what the picture will look like in a few months’ time.Still, the fact we now have dates to work towards for the return of community rugby and supporters is a positive.

Government plans to move out of lockdown also include return of community rugby at end of March Rugby fans in England could be back in stadiums from 17 MayThe Government’s plans to move England out of lockdown could see rugby fans return to stadiums from 17 May.The ‘roadmap’ announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson also includes the resumption of organised outdoor sports – like community rugby – from 29 March.These dates are all subject to certain conditions being met around vaccines and infection rates, but are a positive sign for both professional and grass-roots sport.Related: A tribute to rugby fansIn terms of the return of supporters, the Government plans to run pilot events in April and if they are successful up to 10,000 people could be allowed into the largest venues from mid-May. In smaller stadiums, 25% of the total seated capacity could be permitted – it’s whatever figure is lower.So while there won’t be crowds for either the men’s or women’s Six Nations matches in England, fans could be back for the final rounds of the Gallagher Premiership season.If the move out of lockdown goes smoothly, all restrictions on social contact could be lifted from 21 June, which would mean capacity crowds from that point on. So there could be a full house at Twickenham for the Premiership final.Last year’s Premiership final was played in an empty Twickenham (Getty Images)As for the return of community rugby in England, there are likely to be restrictions around this in terms of contact training and so on, as there were during the previous ‘restart’ last year.The RFU cancelled all league rugby below Premiership, Championship and Premier 15s level last year, but there could be an opportunity for friendly fixtures under the ‘Ready 4 Rugby’ format.A statement from the RFU read: “The Rugby Football Union welcomes the announcement by the Prime Minster that grass-roots team sports, including community rugby, can return from 29 March and the start of fans returning to stadiums from May.“This is good news for the game and for players, coaches and volunteers across the country who will once again be able to enjoy the physical and mental health benefits of being involved in team sport. England coach Eddie Jones runs a Ready4Rugby session (Getty Images)“We will work with DCMS on the Covid protocols for the community game, including the format of rugby that will be permitted in return to play.  We also look forward to working with Government and other sports on the safe return of fans to stadiums.”Elsewhere in the UK, there are currently no dates for a return of community rugby or fans in stadiums. In Northern Ireland, lockdown has been extended to 1 April while in Wales, only four people from two different households can meet outdoors to exercise. News on Scotland’s route out of lockdown is expected later this week.The announcement that capacity crowds could be back by late June may also increase the likelihood of the British & Irish Lions series against South Africa being staged in the UK.A match against Japan at BT Murrayfield on 26 June is already on the schedule so could the rest of the tour be moved north?last_img read more

Refusal to invite bishops’ same-sex spouses to Lambeth 2020 draws…

first_img Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA The congregation, made up mostly of bishops and their spouses, gathered for Eucharist on July 17, 2008, under what was known as “The Big Top” tent at the University of Kent. Photo: Scott Gunn/Anglican Communion News Service[Episcopal News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s decision to exclude the same-sex spouses of bishops invited to the 2020 Lambeth Conference has drawn concern in the British Parliament and from students at the university where the bulk of the events will be held.Both The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council and House of Bishops, as well as a number of dioceses, have gone on record objecting to the decision announced Feb. 15 in an Anglican Communion News Service blog by Anglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon.Idowu-Fearon wrote that Welby had invited “every active bishop” to the periodic gathering of the Anglican Communion’s bishops set for July 23-Aug. 2, 2020. That decision represents a change from the previous Lambeth Conference. In 2008, then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams refused to invite Bishop Gene Robinson, who in 2003 became the first openly gay and partnered bishop in the Anglican Communion.However, Idowu-Fearon said in his blog post that “it would be inappropriate for same-sex spouses to be invited to the conference.” He said the Anglican Communion defines marriage as “the lifelong union of a man and a woman,” as codified in Resolution 1.10 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference.Some spouses enjoy the day on July 22, 2008, during the last Lambeth Conference, with Canterbury Cathedral in the background. Photo: Scott Gunn/Anglican Communion News ServiceAs noted in the 2004 Windsor Report (page 61 here), the decisions of Lambeth Conferences do not carry the force of canonical law in part because there is no single set of canons applicable across the entire communion. The report, issued in the wake of Robinson’s ordination and consecration, said that Lambeth resolutions “have moral authority across the Communion,” and consequently, provinces “should not proceed with controversial developments in the face of teaching to the contrary from all the bishops gathered together in Lambeth Conferences.”The Lambeth Conference, which happens roughly every 10 years, has its roots in a controversy over the teachings of John William Colenso, the bishop of Natal in Southern Africa, and those who thought he was advocating polygamy and defying other accepted theological teaching. Then-Archbishop of Canterbury Charles Longley invited all 144 of the communion’s bishops to the first conference in 1867, but only 76 attended, in part because some felt the gathering would only increase confusion about the controversy, according to an 1889 book.Then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams leads bishops in a retreat July 18, 2008, as the Lambeth Conference began in Canterbury Cathedral. Photo: Chris Tumilty/Anglican Communion News ServiceThe 2020 conference is due to begin with two days of “spiritual retreat” on July 23 and 24, with bishops and spouses gathering separately. An opening Eucharist is set for July 26 at Canterbury Cathedral. The conference website says that, from July 27 to Aug. 1, participants “will work through a daily program which includes Bible studies based on 1 Peter, special guests and keynote speakers, seminars, plenary sessions and discussions.”Spouses have typically participated in a parallel program. However, in 2020, there will be a joint program for the first time. Spouses of bishops will attend combined sessions “at key points in the overall program,” according to information here. There will also be separate sessions on the specific responsibilities of the ministry for bishops and spouses, according to the Lambeth website. The conference’s website features a photo of Welby and his wife, Caroline. The page was changed to add a link to Idowu-Fearon’s blog. It read, “The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is sending personal invitations to every eligible bishop and spouse (excluding same-sex spouses) and is looking forward immensely to hosting them.” The landing page now refers to Welby’s invitations to “every eligible bishop and spouse.”A question in ParliamentBen Bradshaw, a Labour Party member from Exeter, raised a point of order in Parliament on March 14, asking for a statement from Second Church Estates Commissioner Dame Caroline Spelman “on the outrageous decision by the Church of England to issue the official invitation to next year’s Lambeth Conference and explicitly forbid the same-sex spouses of bishops from attending, when the heterosexual spouses of bishops have been warmly invited.”Bradshaw said the exclusion of same-sex spouses is “a totally unacceptable position for our established state church to adopt, and this house needs to tell the church we have had enough of it.”Andrea Leadsom, a Conservative Party member who is lord president of the Privy Council and leader of the House of Commons, replied that she was “not aware of that situation” and was grateful to Bradshaw for raising it. She invited him to write to her so that she could raise the question with Spelman.The @churchofengland decision to explicitly ban the same sex spouses of Anglican Bishops from next year’s Lambeth Conference, when heterosexual spouses are warmly invited, is totally unacceptable behaviour for an established Church which still enjoys the privileges of such. pic.twitter.com/PnxYyr7zU5— Ben Bradshaw (@BenPBradshaw) March 14, 2019Bradshaw was not accurate in his statement that the Church of England issues the invitations for the gathering. The invitations come directly from the archbishop of Canterbury who has a number of communion-wide roles beyond his duties at Canterbury.Bradshaw had been vocal about Welby’s decision before raising his question in Parliament.When I first saw this I thought it must be a spoof. The invitation to next year’s @churchofengland #Lambethconference to “address hurts & concerns” specifically stating that the same sex spouses of Bishops are not welcome. Ashamed of my Church. @churchstate pic.twitter.com/W6hj4YlcIZ— Ben Bradshaw (@BenPBradshaw) February 26, 2019Conference venue responds to questions, criticismThe University of Kent, a public university, said in mid-March that it had agreed in August 2018 to allow the Lambeth Conference in 2020 to convene on its campus on a hill above the main part of Canterbury. It has done so since 1978. The gathering tends to happen roughly every 10 years. The last meeting took place in 2008.The university said, in what appears to be a letter written to someone who inquired about the decision, that it had learned of Welby’s decision via Idowu-Fearon’s blog post.However, the letter goes on to say that the Lambeth Conference is relying on an exemption for religious organizations, which is part of the British Equality Act of 2010. “While we would not apply such a prohibition to any event that we are running directly, we have to respect clients’ rights provided they are lawful and justifiable should they wish to exercise a legal right which is open to them,” the university’s letter said.“The Big Top” was pitched on the University of Kent campus and was the site of most of the session for the last Lambeth Conference, which ran July 16-Aug. 4, 2008. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAn article in the local newspaper quoted one student calling the university’s response “spineless” and another who accused the school of putting the chance to make money above its values. The conference costs £4,950 (about $6,450) per person, which includes accommodation, meals at the venue and all travel during the conference itself. The price doesn’t include flights to or from the United Kingdom.The conference is run by an organization related to the Anglican Communion Office known as the Lambeth Conference Co. Phil George, the chief executive officer, told the Anglican Consultative Council’s Standing Committee last September that “progress continues to be positive and financially we are on track.” Soon after the 2008 gathering, it was reported that the event, which cost £5 million (roughly $9.9 million in 2008), was £1.2 million (or about $2.4 million in 2008) in debt. The Telegraph said that organizers had to ask the Board of Governors of the Church Commissioners and the Archbishops’ Council of the Church of England to cover the deficit.The Student Union at the University of Kent said March 21 that it is “deeply disappointed” in the school’s decision to contract with conference organizers. “This is not a value that we expect to see on campus, and we are committed to championing inclusivity in all events,” the group said in a statement. The students said outside events held at the university ought to “respect the diversity of both students and staff, the values of the University, Kent Union and the environment that they want to utilize.” The statement said the group would be in contact with conference organizers, “where our efforts need to be focused, urging them to change their stance.”Five days later, David Warren, chair of the University Council, said that the school had received “a large number of concerns.” He reported that council members decided that the university “shall ensure that accommodation will be available on campus for those spouses affected by this decision who wish to be in Canterbury with their partners during the conference period.”Warren said he and Karen Cox, University of Kent vice-chancellor and president, would try to meet with the Lambeth Conference organizers and Welby “to bring council’s concerns to their attention and discuss the issues.”The British organization OneBodyOneFaith said in mid-February that its members and supporters were hoping to offer accommodation for same-sex spouses. “We will do everything we can to ensure that they are there in Canterbury next year,” said Tracey Byrne, OneBodyOneFaith chief executive.Byrne and the Rev. Peter Leonard have also written to Welby, Idowu-Fearon and others to express their concern. “We trust that you will continue to reflect on the harm which has been done by this decision and the way in which it has communicated, and like us will be open to the possibilities of transforming that hurt and harm, even at this stage, by courageous words and compassionate action,” they said. “We intend to do just that, starting with our commitment to host those un-invited spouses so they can experience the warm and generous welcome which we believe characterizes the Church of England at its grass roots. This seems to us to be the very least the gospel demands of us.”The Anglican Consultative Council is due to discuss the conference on May 4, the last formal business day of its April 28-May 5 meeting in Hong Kong.– The Rev.

Barbarians run riot in entertaining midweek clash against Leicester Tigers

first_imgWednesday Nov 5, 2014 Barbarians run riot in entertaining midweek clash against Leicester Tigers While the dust was still settling the thrilling Barbarians vs Wallabies game, the famous black and white hoops were at it again last night, against Leicester Tigers. The match wasn’t televised, but the Tigers have put this great package together.There was plenty of frustration yesterday as realisation struck that this mouth-watering fixture, featuring some serious world rugby talent, wasn’t going to be aired by any TV stations, making it almost impossible for those unable to attend to know exactly what went on.Up stepped Leicester Tigers though, and despite them actually losing the entertaining match 59-26, they put together highlights from their own, solo-manned camera, used for internal analysis.As you’ll see why when watching, we’re all extremely grateful as there were not only some excellent tries, but a few hilarious moments, including an outrageously comical conversion attempt (Francis Saili), and one of the most perplexing tap penalty moves you’re likely to see.It was a midweek fixture and could easily have been overlooked, but with players such as Nick Cummins, Tevita Li, Fumiaki Tanaka, Juan de Jongh and Mahonri Schwalger playing (to name a few), it was deeply frustrating to not be able to watch the entire match live on TV.It also happened to be a farewell match for Sharks stalwart Jacques Botes, who as some of you will know, has been well above average his entire career, and perhaps could have got a Test cap if it weren’t for the kind of competition that exists amongst lose forwards in South Africa.He can be seen taking two attempts at goal in the video, the first hopeless, and the second to end the match after De Jongh, who was already on a hat-trick after having scored twice before, unselfishly tossed him the ball in the in goal area for a try of his own.The game ended with the BaaBaas, who had 17 international players from eight different countries, having scored nine tries to the four of the Tigers. De Jongh scored twice while Thomas du Toit, Francis Saili, Heinrich Brussow, Tom English, Michael Rhodes, Tevita Li and Botes also scored.Thanks again to Leicester Tigers for putting this together for the fansADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In total, the penthouse is 11,000 sqf plus 4,500 sqf of terrace.Save this picture!Courtesy of quadrangle architects limitedAfter converting the 11th and 12th floors of the office building to residences, the program stacked on top of the penthouse is an asymmetrical tower of seven new storeys, faced in Indiana limestone, containing full-floor luxury suites. The two floors below the penthouse, which were previously used for office space, were cut back to hold four new half-floor residential suites.Save this picture!Courtesy of quadrangle architects limitedProject gallerySee allShow lessSebrae Headquarters / gruposp + Luciano MargottoSelected ProjectsAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XLArticlesProject locationAddress:155 Cumberland Street, Toronto, ON M5R 2E8, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

This house is located in old Barwon Heads on a street which accommodates an eclectic mix of post war beach houses dominated by single storey weatherboard dwellings. Contemporary architectural houses are now weaving their way into the surrounding streets, a reflection of a shifting property market.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathIn this case, the clients were looking to replace their deteriorating beach shack which the family had owned for many years. The house was to fulfil a modest brief for a beach retreat and subsequently it would become their permanent dwelling. The clients have spent many years of their life in Barwon Heads and they were seeking a house which would effortlessly integrate within the existing streetscape whilst adapting to the changing character of the town.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe owners are well known to Jon Clements who has spent many years visiting both their beach shack and their rural bluestone farmhouse which overlooks the Moorabool valley west of Geelong. The design of the house was carefully conceived to embrace the essence of their existing rural and coastal lifestyle and to ultimately accommodate the later stages of their lives. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe clients were not convinced that they needed a garage (they have always parked on the street) however the inclusion of a single car garage to accommodate a car or boat was up for consideration. Part of the concern in relation to the garage was the impact of its presentation to the streetscape which was an obvious concern, combined with the fact that the south side of the site (the obvious side for the garage) had exceptional views to the Barwon Estuary. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathIn response to these constraints it was decided that a semi-basement tandem garage would provide a satisfactory solution which would partially disguised the existence of the garage in relation to the streetscape whilst providing the primary structural support for the main living wing of the dwelling and elevation for improved river views. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe planning arrangement of the house is split into three primary pavilions arrangements separated by glazed links – south, northwest and northeast, all of which embrace a north facing courtyard garden protected from prevailing breezes. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe South pavilion provides the primary open plan living space, study, laundry and guest bedroom/bathroom. This pavilion is strategically located on the south side of the site to embrace river views and the primary north solar orientation. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe northwest pavilion encompasses the retreat, master bedroom, Walk-in robes and ensuite. Two primary elements are split by a breezeway to improve cross flow ventilation and to accommodate an outdoor shower often used on return from the beach. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe northeast pavilion (fronting the streetscape) provides a shaded gauze room referencing aspects of traditional rural woolsheds which used timber battens for shading whilst providing extensive cross-ventilation for cooling purposes. In this case the building is entirely clad in a triple skin translucent polycarbonate cladding system with the inner skin entirely clad with timber battens. Large barn doors open to the east and west and the openings are subsequently protected by sliding gauze screens. This space provides cool shaded ventilated space in summer (doors open) and a warm passively heated space in winter (doors closed). An important aspect of this room is its direct and engaging relationship with the streetscape and the important social aspect of communicating with people passing by on foot. To further reinforce this aspect the boundary fence was placed to the north side of the pavilion to remove any sense of disconnection from the streetscape and the people who populate it – arguably an important aspect of the sub-culture in Barwon Heads. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe presentation of the streetscape elevation is divided by the different materiality of both the south and northeast pavilions. The gabled forms embrace the context of the surrounding post war weatherboard houses and the white polycarbonate directly references the white weatherboards of the dwelling to the North. In this respect the presentation of the streetscape elevation provides a transition or blurring point between the neighbouring dwellings to the north and south. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe collection of pavilions sit elevated on a perimeter masonry wall which provides a definitive boundary between the perimeter landscaping dominated by gravel and native grasses (the dunescape referencing the historical landscape condition)  and the grass courtyard (the notional intrusion). Large circular concrete planters (stock troughs referencing their rural lifestyle) accommodate the herb and vegetable gardens within the perimeter ‘dunescape’. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathESD strategies include Active and passive shading systems, Solar Hot water Systems, Rainwater harvesting (for toilet, garden and washing machine use), high performance double glazing and under floor hydronic heating.

The project tackles the problem of accessibility in two three story multifamily residential buildings built in the 90s comprised of 100 public rental units. The only access to the homes was by stairway. The buildings are roughly 100 metres long and are separated by an interior street with a steep incline. Eight lifts, one for each entrance, were to be included in the initial project. The potential architectural intervention in the entire complex made us reconsider the initial approach. Our proposal was to install three bridge structures each containing a lift to resolve the accessibility issues in all the homes using the existing corridors that ran through the buildings lengthwise.Save this picture!© Javier OriveThe plan was guided by criteria of minimal intervention, incorporating resources provided by the pre-existing architecture. Consequently, new social spaces for the residents were built and installation and future maintenance costs were reduced.The intervention also resolved other problems with the hung plumbing network and the building’s finishes.Save this picture!© Javier OriveINTERIOR CIRCULATION. TRAFFIC PATTERNSThe approach to mediating between the two separate buildings by reconfiguring the interior street separating them, using materials and building solutions chosen for their simplicity, accessibility conditions were improved and the space, which residents had previously avoided crossing, could now be used for transit and as public space.The new vertical circulation cores provide service to the longitudinal corridors that connect the homes using as few lifts as possible. Each core is a different colour to make it more easily identifiable by users and to define the resulting public spaces.Save this picture!© Javier OriveSTRUCTUREThe three bridge structures that contain the lifts are formed by steel porticoes that span the distance between the two buildings. Composite galvanized steel floor decking with reinforced concrete was used for the floor slabs. And the construction process allowed for all the homes to be used during building.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSports Center and Indoor Pool / Alday Jover Arquitectura y PaisajeSelected ProjectsLas Palmas House / Carlos MolinaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Sevilla, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.
