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.

Debbie will take the lead in sharing CMS’s mission experience with churches in the UK, as well as encouraging members of the CMS mission community.Debbie says “CMS’s 215 years of mission experience is a great resource for the church in Britain today. We are committed to building relationships with churches, small missional communities and houses of mission, and to bringing our distinct contribution in pioneering, cross-cultural mission that is shaped by a global perspective.”“We want to connect, fuel and resource people to live out a transforming faith in their communities and churches.”Debbie, formerly a teacher in Moscow and the UK, joined CMS in 2001 as Encounter Teams coordinator, developing short-term mission team experiences and leading visits in Africa, Asia and Europe.

It encourages mature Christian engagement with issues such as the environment, materialism and justice. Complete with DVD and comprehensive Bible notes, the seven-week course creatively demonstrates how a different world is possible through the stories of some ordinary people doing amazing things inspired by the life of Christ.Debbie joins other recent appointments Jim Barker, who last week took up his post as director of fundraising for mission, and Jonny Baker, who began his new role as director of mission education in January.Jim, formerly responsible for donor recruitment at Oxfam and direct marketing manager for Friends of the Earth, was one of the original trainees at Oxford Youth Works.

I hear the mayor laughing under his breath and Commissioner Velazquez laughing low- key too on the audio, about these surprises to come. If Santa Claus makes an entrance at the state of the city address, the surprise is fine….but otherwise, I am leery of their surprises! The last time they surprised us residents…..we got an increase on our water, sewer, and re-use utility bill annually for the next 5 years…… December 11, 2017 at 10:30 am Reply Reply Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia December 11, 2017 at 10:32 am Reply Reply Mama Mia December 11, 2017 at 10:17 am A storm is moving in right now. I hear the thunder. Hope there’s not a tornado warning. Lightning back toward Eustis, and very keen lightning…. the thunder is getting louder now. Band of possible tornado threats, and a storm of heavy rain, lightning, and nickel sized hail was shown earlier on tv and it was way north of Apopka moving west toward the east….now the heavy rain has started here right now, and my dog is getting concerned and worried….our chandelier is flickering on and off….the winds are picking up quickly…I don’t know if this is going to be bad or not…it is coming up so quickly…. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate It is nuttier than a fruitcake for Mayor Kilsheimer to give his State of the City address at Highland Manor at the early-bird hour of 8 am…..why not have it at a different time? Working people are heading to work, or already at work, at that time of day on a weekday, and others that are older, or retired, don’t care to crawl out of their warm beds to head out into the cold, way before 8 am, and to get up in time to allow for getting dressed, have breakfast, and then to head out to go to the Highland Manor, fighting the traffic of those heading to work, to hear the mayor’s starry-eyed visions of “a quality- of- life improved Apopka” or what I like to refer to as “his lot of hot air” speech. Like most things, it depends on who you ask.Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer will attempt to answer that question when he delivers the State of the City address on Tuesday, December 12th at 8AM at the Highland Manor, 604 E. Main Street in Apopka.“It’s a look-back and a look-ahead,” said Kilsheimer. “It sums up the past year and tells residents what to expect in the coming year.”Kilsheimer announced the State of the City at Wednesday’s City Council meeting and promised “surprises”. Those surprises will not be known until Tuesday when Kilsheimer takes the stage and delivers this historic speech. The content, surprises, and announcements will be unveiled then.This is the second State of the City address delivered by Kilsheimer, who is also the author of the speech. Last year he spoke for 35 minutes, laying out his accomplishments while in office and his vision for the future. The approximately 5,000-word address touched on several issues including business in Apopka, municipal government, public safety, city finances, grants, economic development, The City Center, The Highland Manor, growth, education, and even the environment. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Mama Mia Mama Mia Why the Highland Manor anyway? Is this the location of where the first micro-brewery in Apopka will be, there at Highland Manor? If so, the mayor didn’t have to amend the liquor laws for that there, as they already serve alcohol there…… December 8, 2017 at 10:56 pm The Anatomy of Fear Maybe I will come to the State of the City address. Maybe I will cut the mayor off in his speech at 4 minutes, and tell him his time is up…..or do like Randy Travis, the country singer, in his drunken rant to the cops on his arrest video… and tell the Mayor, like Randy Travis told the cop, ” I reckon you outta just shut up” …..lol Mama Mia December 8, 2017 at 9:52 pm December 11, 2017 at 10:20 am I wanna know how many houses is enough ? traffic jams everywhere , having to wait at traffic lights until they have changed two or three times to get through them , car wrecks ,no parking places ,when is it going to end ? and now a couple of thousand more homes going up out near Kelly Park Rd . that will impact the city. Is someone getting a kick back ??? Reply Joe King What’s he gonna tell us, how he is going to save us if he is re-elected from all the carp he had pulled getting us in this situation he caused, Now after all these years trying to besmirch our good reputation and bring in bars that we don’t need or want, their are enough eating establishments in the city that serve alcohol with food , no bars needed.

This house consists of 3 bedrooms, 3 baths with approximately 370m2. of enclosed and outdoor area. Save this picture!Left ElevationThe site terrain gentle slopes down from the adjacent public road from the higher ground. The brief from the Client was to design a simple, unassuming and ‘modern’ looking house. The profile and section of this house hugs the terrain with minimum interference of the existing slope. Despite its steel and glass construction, the house functions like a traditional tropical house with tall ceiling heights, well lit interior spaces, and sufficient ventilation with windows on most walls and aluminium louvers at the highest part of building for the hot air to escape. Save this picture!© Kenneth LimMost of the building is designed with steel and glass to evoke lightness. The foundation and the stump of building is made of conventional reinforced concrete. The extensive use of glass as the surrounding skin enables the occupants to enjoy the surrounding forest view. Save this picture!Interior Perspective SketchLiving in Janda Baik with the relatively moderate climate allows the occupants to enjoy the outdoor activities and fresh air practically all day long. Hence, extensive outdoor areas such as from the deck to the living and dining and terrace to Master Bedroom form critical part of the building design. Save this picture!© Kenneth LimTo enter the house from car park / driveway, one has to cross the steel and timber bridge. Upon entering the house, there is a small entry hall with a door to the Master Bedroom slightly on the right. The Master bedroom boasts 6.8 m wide sliding glass doors which opens to a generous exterior terrace. Save this picture!© Kenneth LimFrom the main entry hall, one can walk down to the Living / Dining / Kitchen located at the lower ground floor via a steel/timber staircase. This space is a majestic 2 storey void enclosed in glass with a full view of the surrounding forest. The master bedroom above can also view the Living area via this void. The Living / Dining / Kitchen is designed as a single open plan space connected to the highlight of the house – a 10.5m long and a 6.8m wide timber deck supported by a steel structure underneath. The last 2.5m of the deck is cantilevered out from its supporting beam to create the effect of an “infinity deck”. The occupants of the house spend most of their time on this deck. Save this picture!© Kenneth LimAs most trees adjacent to building are maintained, one can almost touch the leaves of the trees from this deck. Timber is used as the floor finishes for both the Living and the deck areas, thus merging the Living/Dining and the deck through the full height glass panels. This combination creates a single and large open plan ‘infinity’ platform with an undisturbed 360 degree of the forest view. Furthermore, the extensive use of timber has created an extremely rich and warm texture and feel for this space, complementing the warm texture of the forest nearby. Save this picture!© Kenneth LimUltimately, this is a cosy and comfortable house to live in; providing extensive outdoor spaces for the occupants to enjoy the stunning green forest within the relatively cool climate of the Janda Baik forest while being designed and built with minimum interference to the existing terrain.Project gallerySee allShow lessZero Energy House Lokeren / BLAF ArchitectenSelected ProjectsTurks Paint Public Walkways in ProtestArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Pahang, MalaysiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Like Father Nguyen Van Ly, a Catholic priest and dissident who has been under house arrest since 19 February, they are accused of “hostile propaganda against the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.” RSF_en News VietnamAsia – Pacific Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Nguyen Van Dai and Le Thi Cong Nhan have been on hunger strike since their arrest on 6 March. At the sametime, Dai’s wife has not been allowed to visit him on the grounds that an investigation is still under way.—————————–6.03.07 – Two lawyers and cyber-dissidents arrested for “hostile propaganda” Reporters Without Borders today urged Hanoi-based diplomats to seek the release of Nguyen Van Dai and Le Thi Cong Nhan, both lawyers and cyber-dissidents, who were arrested at their homes this morning. Like Father Nguyen Van Ly, a Catholic priest and dissident who has been under house arrest since 19 February, they are accused of “hostile propaganda against the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.””We are very worried about these three dissidents and, in general, about all the pro-democracy activists who signed the ‘Bloc 8406’ petition in their real names,” the press freedom organisation said. “Vietnam made a big effort to appear acceptable while negotiating its admittance to the World Trade Organisation and preparing the APEC summit, but now that is over, it is trying to stifle the pro-democracy movement that Nguyen Van Dai represents.”Dai and Nhan could be held in pretrial custody for four months after being accused of “hostile propaganda” under article 88 if the criminal code.One of the leaders of Vietnam’s pro-democracy movement and a staunch human rights activist, Dai regularly posts pro-democracy essays on websites based abroad. Last June, shortly after the 10th Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam, he wrote an article on the “right to found a party in Vietnam” for the BBC’s Vietnamese-language website.The authorities mobilised some 200 residents in the Hanoi district of Bach Khoa on 8 February to act as a “popular court” to try him on a charge of “treason.” Although this kind of court does not have the power to hand down prison sentences, it is used by the government to intimidate dissidents.Shortly before his arrest, Dai began a blog on the Reporters Without Borders blog platform (www.rsfblog.org). He posted his essay on political parties there, as well as photos of his trip to the United States last year, when he met with State Department officials.Father Ly was on hunger strike from 24 February to 5 March, after he was transferred to the Ben Cui parish building in Phong Xuan, a town some distance from the central city of Hue, where he lives and helps to edit the independent magazine, Tu do Ngôn luan.He is being guarded by about 20 policemen and is forbidden to leave the parish building. He is not allowed to go to church, cannot receive visits from friends and was reportedly manhandled by some of the policemen on 26 February. Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to permit Ly to return to Hue as soon as possible and to allow him to leave his home.Vietnam is on the Reporters Without Borders list of 13 Internet Enemies. Four other cyber-dissidents – Truong Quoc Huy, Le Nguyen Sang (“Nguyen Hoang Long), Huynh Nguyen Dao (“Huynh Viet Lang”) and Nguyen Vu Binh – are currently detained.
