England thump the Barbarians ahead of South American tour

first_imgTuesday May 28, 2013 England thump the Barbarians ahead of South American tour England got their international season under way with a strong 40-12 victory over the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday. They scored five tries, providing a good confidence boost ahead of the three match tour of South America. The match started with a bang as England scored within 40 seconds, as Freddie Burns crossed after an electric dart down the wing by young flyer Marland Yarde. Yarde went on to score in the second half, as did Kyle Eastmond, Christian Wade and Billy Tweltrees.The Barbarians disappointed for the most part, but scored late in the game through Springbok Schalk Brits and future England star Elliot Daly.The fixture provided an opportunity for coach Stuart Lancaster to blood some new talent, which bodes well for the tour of South America, as there are 12 uncapped players selected in the squad.Yarde impressed with his try, and his size could weigh in his favour according to Lancaster. “Closer to 100kg than 90kg, which means he can bump people off as well as run round them,” he said.With senior players such as Chris Ashton, Toby Flood and Danny Care all being rested, it’s a great opportunity for the next batch of hopefuls to step up.England play a combined South American team on Sunday, June 2nd, before a two-Test series against Argentina. The last time England toured the region in 2009 they lost 24-22 in Salta. 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.

Ceres stuns Brisbane, sustains historic Champions League run

By stunning Brisbane Roar, 3-2, last Tuesday night in AFC Asian Cup Qualifying round at Queensland Sport And Athletic Stadium, the Busmen became the first Philippine club to surpass the second round of the continent’s top-tier club competition and set up a duel with Chinese powerhouse Tianjin Quanjian. ADVERTISEMENT And for awhile, Brisbane was in control with former Italian international Massimo Maccarone putting the hosts in front with a close range finish in the 35th minute. But for a team that bucked odds in the AFC Cup last season, Ceres came up with a trademark response that put the hosts on its heels.The Busmen got a deserved equalizer through Maranon just two minutes before halftime. Maranon then combined with Mike Ott in the 65th minute, before curling home from just inside the box. Nazari tapped home from a scramble with 15 minutes remaining as Ceres weathered a late surge by Brisbane that included a goal from Franjic in the 87th minute.Ceres’ victory augurs well to what has been a difficult time for club football in the country following the pullout of two clubs from the PFL – Meralco Manila and Ilocos United – in the past two weeks of the month.
