Rowland Phillips – Wales

first_imgRowland Phillips, now coaching at AironiWhen Rowland Phillips was still a player, he spoke to Rugby World about practical jokes, there being no life outside rugby and becoming the embarrassing uncle at weddings. Don’t be fooled by the picture, scroll down to see the joker at work. RUGBY WORLD: How did you celebrate Neath’s Welsh Premiership win?ROWLAND PHILLIPS: It was more subdued than you’d expect. We played our last league game the week before the final round of games, so Newport were still able to take the title with a 15-try win over Pontypridd. The weekend of that game we were having a memorial match for Brian Williams on the Sunday – I played in the same team as my son, Lloyd, 18, and we both scored tries – so the cup was presented there. Although it was a big ask for Newport to beat Ponty and score 15 tries, you haven’t won until you’ve won, so we had to wait until then to celebrate.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen or heard on the pitch?RP: I take my rugby very seriously –all my laughing is done off the pitch.RW: Any good practical jokes that you can share?RP: In New Zealand on the Welsh tour in 1988 I have to confess to persuading the hotel receptionist to put out a tannoy message calling for a ‘Don Kiddick’ to report to the foyer. She put out continuous requests for Don Kiddick for at least ten minutes, to the amusement of the rest of the squad.RW: What’s your nickname?RP: Rowly.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?RP: There’s life outside rugby?RW: What three things would you save if your house was burning down?RP: Both my children and my dog. If you give me the opportunity to save four things, then I’d take the TV. Five things, I’d add my wife to the list (only joking – probably the stereo).Michael Jackson, Little Red Riding Hood and Cuddly Toys…RW: What are your phobias?RP: Flying – because it tires my arms.RW: Do you have a karaoke song?RP: Anything by MozartRW: Breasts, bum or legs man?RP: I’ve got it all. I quite like my breasts. RW: If you could have one superpower what would it be?RP: To be able to predict the past.RW: What embarrasses you?RP: Having now turned into the embarrassing uncle at weddings (though I do a good Michael Jackson).RW: What are the best and worst headlines you’ve seen about yourself?RP: Worst – Something like ‘Wales tourist gets hotel receptionist sacked through childish Don Kiddick prank.’ Best – Wales tourist gets ‘Don Kiddick receptionist’ reinstated after mounting defence at appeal’.RW: What are your bugbears?RP: Are those cuddly toys?RW: Have you ever been starstruck?RP: No, but I imagine that would hurt.RW: What’s your favourite joke?RP: Little Red Riding Hood is skipping through the forest on her way to see her grandma when she sees a big bad wolf behind the bush. “What big eyes you’ve got, and what shiny teeth!” she says. The wolf looks at her and runs into the forest. She continues skipping through the forest and spots something behind a tree. Again, it’s the big bad wolf.“What big eyes you’ve got, and what shiny teeth!” she says. The wolf looks at her again and runs into the forest. She continues on her way and behind a rock something again catches her eye. It’s the big bad wolf again. “What big eyes you’ve got and what shiny teeth!” she says. The big bad wolf looks at her and says: “Do me a favour, go away, and let me have a s**t in peace!”RW: How do you stay entertained on long-haul flights?RP: I sing out loud. My favourite is 500 Million Green Bottles Sitting on a Wall.RW: Win the World Cup or £2m?RP: Win the World Cup – that would be priceless.Rowland now coaches Aironi rugby club in Italy. He obviously takes life seriously… (apologies for the spelling mistake)center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

South Africa win USA Rugby Sevens in Las Vegas

first_imgBranco Du Preez, Bernado Botha and Chris Dry also scored tries for South Africa in the 24-14 win while Watisoni Votu and Mitieli Nacagilevu crossed for Fiji. The victory meant South Africa secured their first Seven Series title since winning in Adelaide in 2009.At the halfway stage of the series, England and New Zealand still top the standings – they’re level on 80 points. But England coach Ben Ryan was disappointed by his team’s performance against South Africa and questioned the decision to play the Cup quarter-finals on day one of the tournament to accommodate broadcasters NBC.Head honcho: Ben Ryan“I’m very frustrated we didn’t see off South Africa in the second half and there were small errors from us,” said Ryan. “But we’re midway through the series and we’ll still be No 1 seeds going into Hong Kong and Adelaide. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS We are the champions: South Africa celebrate their first IRB Sevens title for two yearsBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorTHE HOUSE might always win in Las Vegas casinos, but the odds were upset on the city’s rugby field at the USA Sevens.At the start of the day, all the talk was of a third straight IRB Sevens Series final between England and New Zealand, but both favourites were upset in the semi-finals and South Africa went on to lift the Cup.England let slip a 10-0 lead in their semi-final to South Africa to lose 17-10 while Fiji – inspired by some rousing words from sevens legend Waisale Serevi – dominated their last-four tie to beat New Zealand 26-7.Star of the show: Cecil AfrikaCome the final, South Africa’s speed proved more effective than Fiji’s power. The Fijians have a fine offloading game and some of their players were twice the size of their South African counterparts, but big isn’t always best.Cecil Afrika was the smallest player on the pitch and was also the most influential. He used his pace and footwork to exploit space in the Fijian defence and opened the scoring.center_img “The goal posts shifted slightly here with four games on day one, which makes it difficult. We have to be careful we don’t sell our soul and lose the reasons the sevens game does so well. I hope the power brokers realise that.”In the other finals, those who got lucky in Las Vegas were the USA, who lifted the Shield when beating Japan 19-12, Scotland, who overcame Canada 19-14 to win the Bowl, and Plate champions Samoa, 26-17 winners over Kenya.last_img read more

Midway through the second half Matthew Rees took a quick line out throw near halfway to Mike Phillips, for the Ospreys scrum-half to sprint down the touchline and score a great try! But the ball Rees used for the quick throw-in was not the one kicked out by Jonathan Sexton so contravening Law 19.2d. The differnt ball was in fact thrown to Rees by a ball boy while the original ball flew into the crowd.To the credit of referee Jonathan Kaplan (who knew there was a problem) he asked touch judge Peter Allen if Wales had used the same ball. To which Allen replied: ‘Yes’. Who knows why has he couldn’t have known!The try decided the game and has renewed the calls for the increased use of the Television Match Official, who must now be allowed to adjudicate on all issues in the phase that led to the try, unlike the current situation when he can only adjudicate on incidents in the act of try scoring.The rest of the game was significant for the way Wales were able to win ugly and grind out a victory. James Hook’s kicking display was world-class and he controlled the game superbly for the Welsh.To see highlights of the game click here – UK only unfortunately.

Harlequins undone by Toulouse

first_imgTAGS: Harlequins Quins director of rugby Conor O’Shea believes that this game provided a prime example of the intensity needed in Europe’s premier club competition and thinks it will prove to be a good learning experience for his side.“The right side one,” said O’Shea. “It was incredibly physical, we couldn’t win the gain-line battle and we made a few mistakes. It was a very, very physical Toulouse side, they stopped us on the gain-line and we didn’t get the quick ball that we like. That’s what you have to learn at this level.“In games like that we need to be more accurate in what we do and find ways of being physical. They really attacked the breakdown with unbelievable ferocity – they came here with their game heads on and gave us the respect we deserved after winning 14 games in a row. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Euro challenge: Mike Brown touches down for Harlequins – but he couldn’t prevent his side losing 21-10 to Toulouse By Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorHARLEQUINS’ 14-MATCH winning run had to come to an end at some point and there’s no shame in losing to Europe’s most successful professional side. The Londoners have dominated the Aviva Premiership all season but they could not get the better of the mighty Toulouse at the Stoop and failed to even collect a losing bonus point as they lost their Heineken Cup tie 21-10.Quins were outmuscled by a powerful Toulouse pack. The back row featured three France internationals – Yannick Nyanga, Thierry Dusautoir and Louis Picamoles, a real beast at No 8 – while any side that can leave William Servat on the bench clearly has impressive credentials.The Toulouse backs were just as intimidating, with Luke McAlister, Yannick Jauzion and Florian Fritz up quick in defence and knocking back their opponents. Quins missed their first-choice centre pairing of Jordan Turner-Hall and George Lowe, who both make their presence felt in defence as well as attack.Back-row beast: Powerhouse Louis PicamolesQuins’ cause wasn’t helped by George Clancy’s refereeing of the breakdown, but at this level teams need to adapt to the officials and play to the whistle – something that the home side took too long to do and Toulouse were able to take advantage when penalties were awarded.The battle at the breakdown meant Quins struggled to get the quick ball on which their attacking game thrives and when they did manage to string together phases, the next pass often went to ground or the ball was turned over. Toulouse on the other hand were clinical when given a sniff and Quins were fortunate to only concede two tries. “We have to get used to playing at this level and have to understand what’s needed when playing big games like this on a regular basis. We’re not a bad side now we’ve lost a game, just as we weren’t a great side when we were winning games.”The next test for this side is a trip to Toulouse on Sunday. So can they learn quickly enough from this first defeat of the season to turn things around in France eight days’ time?last_img read more

The role of the set-piece in South Africa’s Rugby World Cup win

first_img The role of the set-piece in South Africa’s Rugby World Cup winIn the aftermath of the Springboks Rugby World Cup triumph over England, plenty of praise was sent towards South African scrum. In the first half alone, they Boks were awarded five penalties at scrum time.Soon after losing 32-12, England prop Joe Marler was asked about the set-piece. “It is a tough ask and Jerome (Garces) decided he was going to referee a scrum this week… Which is good to know… Bless his heart. It is very hard to change that perception.”Related: Springboks powered to Rugby World Cup victory by “hope”The loosehead would add, sportingly: “South Africa fully deserved to win tonight. I hope they have a great night. As soon as you paint a picture early doors then that is in the back of the referee’s mind. The South African pack did a good job tonight.”Popping up: Pressure tells as both sides rise in the scrum (Getty Images)South Africa also stole an England lineout, but it was eight-man shove that caught the eye the most, and England assistant Steve Borthwick would add, post-match: “Credit to South Africa for what they did, especially in that first half when they got the ascendancy (in the scrum). We’ll look at it. Do I have the reasons right now? No, I don’t. It’s something we have to look at closely and think about.”But what did the Boks make of it?Starting tighthead Frans Malherbe said of it all:  “The game worked out well for us. The scrums went well in the first half and, as a prop forward, there is nothing more you can ask for. Really, really happy with the performance from everyone.”Related: Springboks celebrate Rugby World Cup victoryBut his hooker Bongi Mbonambi had more details to give, adding: “It’s really satisfying. As a forward, you always want to have the upper hand. But credit to the whole pack for doing their homework during the week.“We knew England were going to bring a massive challenge to the scrums and lineouts. We had to work hard all week – credit to someone like Beast (Tendai Mtawarira), who brings the experience that he had before.Team effort: The Boks rotated their front five forwards well (Getty Images)“The vibe from the whole team (was incredible)… You could see Siya (Kolisi) and the loosies putting the energy into the scrum, and it was rewarding for us.”And on all three starting props, replacement looshead Steven Kitshoff said: “Beast, Bongi and Frans  put on a massive performance when it came to scrum time. They put the English pack under so much pressure. Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Explaining what was happening there, replacement flanker Francois Louw told the press of the drive: “It was a trick play. It had a very exciting name called T-move – it is the move. A short lineout with a running maul set (in-field), which we set comfortably, and we won a penalty off that, via England sacking it.“In a final, all you to do is chip away at the scoreboard, and eventually things opened up for us and we got some good tries through some real individual brilliance.”It was a rare moment of innovation, the spanner in the works. But as several people have said, the foundation was the scrum. As the Springboks are praised for their scrum and maul in the final, we look at the reactioncenter_img “It was our job coming off the bench to carry on and take it forward from there.”The scrum was the big talking point, but then there was also a surprising moment – the trick up the sleeve – of a centre-field maul after a phase, away from a lineout. As Louw surmised: “The set piece tonight, our scrum was magnificent, to say the least. To get set-piece penalties in a final, I don’t think you can ask much more from your tight-five.”They’ll be sore enough, but the Springboks tight five might just get some bruises from all the pats on the back too.Keep track of events in Japan via our Rugby World Cup homepage.

Foto: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Cárdenas, Cuba] “Si no somos parte de la solución, somos parte del problema”, dice el cartel a la entrada del Centro de Reflexión y Diálogo aquí. Es un lema que resuena en el ministerio del centro, con programas de compromiso con la comunidad y dirigidos al desarrollo humano y comunitario.El centro y su metodología “sirve como un buen modelo para las iglesias a través de América Latina”, dijo el obispo Julio César Holguín de República Dominicana, y agregó que a través de sus programas y programas de compromiso con la comunidad, el centro trabaja en la formación, tanto a nivel individual como comunitario. Holguín dirigió una pequeña delegación a Cuba del 18 de febrero  hasta el 25 de febrero, para asistir al  Sínodo General  de la iglesia episcopal de Cuba en la Habana. La visita del  20 de febrero al centro, que fue fundada hace más de 20 años, fue una oportunidad para presenciar y aprender sobre el movimiento ecuménico de Cuba.Desde un punto de vista cristiano inclusive, el centro tiene como objetivo contribuir al sentido de la existencia humana, promover una concepción holística de la vida y la salud, promover la dignidad humana, y desarrollar una cultura de paz y participación de la comunidad, con énfasis en los pobres, los débiles y las personas marginadas de la sociedad, de acuerdo con su misión.“Yo estaba muy impresionado por la interacción, la conexión entre la reflexión y la práctica”, dijo el obispo Todd Ousley de la Diócesis de Michigan del este, y agregó que su enfoque a los programas y procesos se basa en la teología.El propósito del centro es promover el diálogo interreligioso centrado en la integración social a nivel comunitario, con cuatro objetivos para ese fin:fomentar el reconocimiento de la dignidad humana, inspirado en las verdades del Evangelio;animar el procesos de reconciliación, paz y desarrollo de valores humano;estimular la participación de la comunidad y el desarrollo del individual; ypromover servicios para las personas necesitadas, enfermas y sufridas.Sobre este último, cuatro de los empleados del centro – dos mujeres y dos hombres – proporcionan comidas, higiene básica, lavandería y otros servicios de cinco días a la semana a 120 personas de edad avanzada, y cuidados a personas infectadas con el VIH.“Es un ministerio difícil”, dijo Rita García Morris, subdirectora del centro. “La gente es muy pobre, y viven en una habitación sin un baño”.Además del programa de cuidado de los ancianos, el centro cuenta con una biblioteca y centro de informática, ofrece talleres de manualidades para niños y ancianos, programas culturales para personas de todas las edades, grupos de debate sobre temas que van desde la teología y derechos humanos a la violencia doméstica, además de servir como un lugar de culto.“[Es] muy impresionante – mente, cuerpo, espíritu, uno lo está haciendo todo”, dijo Ousley durante un recorrido por el centro.En el futuro, el centro espera proporcionar un hogar de cuidado de ancianos, donde las personas a quienes sirven puedan vivir y recibir cuidados diarios, y también un refugio para las víctimas de la violencia doméstica, otra población al cual el centro sirve en su ministerio de alcance.Se trata de “sueños”, dijo García Morris. “Los sueños son para la gente con fe”.Ubicado en una antigua fábrica, el centro comenzó a funcionar a principios de 1990, pero no fue hasta 2011 que el gobierno cubano le concedió al centro licencia oficial.Además de sus ministerios de alcance local, el centro acoge grupos nacionales e internacionales de jóvenes y adultos, con capacidad para entre 80 y 90 personas en sus 28 habitaciones. El personal solicita que las reservas se harán tres o cuatro meses con anticipación para coordinar las visas religiosas necesarias.El centro también ofrece una amplia variedad de publicaciones. Holguín se desempeñó como obispo interino de la iglesia episcopal de Cuba desde el 2003 hasta el 2004, y al mismo tiempo sirvió en la República Dominicana. Además de Ousley, Holgún estuvo acompañado por el Rdo. Emilio Martin, quien es cubano, y sirvió en el consejo de la junta de directores cuando fue sacerdote de la iglesia episcopal de San Francisco de Asís en Cárdenas; Bill Kunkle, director ejecutivo del Grupo de Desarrollo Dominicano; y David Morrow, presidente de la junta directiva de la DDG.La junta de directiva de DDG, en la que Ousley también se desempeña, se reunió la semana pasada en Santo Domingo, República Dominicana, para su reunión anual del consejo después de la convención diocesana anual.– Lynette Wilson es una editora/reportera para Episcopal News Service.
