EXCLUSIVE COLUMN: Schalk Burger

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Interestingly, we’ve seen reports about the South African franchises hooking up with English and French clubs. It could be an exciting competition, but it’s up to SARFU to make the big decisions when the TV deal comes up in a few years.Compared to other sports, we’re really missing a global season. Once we can get the North and South together, it will clear up grey areas and you can dedicate slots to certain competitions. A new global season could mean players play less and add longevity to their careers.Next month I’ll be in London playing for the Barbarians against Fjii. I last faced them in the RWC 2007 quarter-final – a very tight affair. They have phenomenal physical attributes and like to throw it around. I remember Nick Mallett saying the perfect breed of rugby player is a mix of Afrikaan and South Sea Islander. during quarter final three of the 2011 IRB Rugby World Cup between South Africa and Australia at Wellington Regional Stadium on October 9, 2011 in Wellington, New Zealand. The Baa-Baas are a throwback to the amateur days. You just chuck a team together, have a few lagers and give it your best on game day. After the time I’ve had, I can’t wait.Barbarians v Fiji at Twickenham, Sat 30 Nov (2.30pm). See ticketmaster.co.uk. Bok bouncing back: After a nightmare year Schalk Burger has returned to rugby and soon heads on tour to EuropeBy Schalk BurgerThe last 18 months have been the toughest of my life. Back in 2012, I had a serious knee injury in my first game of Super Rugby, which ruled me out for the entire season. I thought that was bad, but it got much worse.When I started training again for 2013, they found a cyst on my spinal cord and after my first operation I picked up a form of bacterial meningitis. There was a critical stage for four or five days where it could have gone either way, but luckily I pulled through. It took four operations to get rid of the cyst and after eight weeks in hospital and three months at home, I started the slow road to recovery.Sporting green: Burger back in 2011The question I’m asked most is, ‘Do I want to play for the Springboks again?’ Well, if I play to my capability, there’s no reason why I shouldn’t. If I fall below those standards, I probably won’t make it because of the talent coming through.What I’ve seen from Heyneke Meyer’s side has been hugely encouraging. Last year we played a conservative game, but this year they have evolved with a good mix of youngsters and elder statesmen.In South Africa, there are concerns over the increasing player drain to Europe. At Test level it’s not having much of an effect, but player turnover at our Super Rugby franchises is higher than ever. Players head to Europe at a younger age for financial benefits and if we continue to lose our big players to France or England, the true effect could be felt a few years down the line. It will be a sad day for the South African fan when you don’t have the top 15 Springboks slogging it out.last_img read more

World Cup 2015: England 13-33 Australia

first_img TAGS: Highlight England exited their own World Cup in humiliating fashion at Twickenham as they were thrashed 33-13 by a well-drilled, innovative Australia side. Bernard Foley was the star of the show, with 28 points on the board, including two first-half tries. For England, who had a brief resurgence in the second-half with an Anthony Watson try, a monstering at the scrum and coming second-best at the breakdown will have only compounded their deep disappointment.WHAT’S HOTWallaby backlineIsrael Folau, Will Genia, Kurtley Beale. We could go on, but they are all players who are so comfortable with the ball in hand. They toyed with the England backline for the two first-half tries, weaving intricate moves on England’s 22 that stretched the defence ended with two slick Bernard Foley tries. After the break they showed their clinical side, when England were a man down, they worked the ball wide and Adam Ashley-Cooper sent Giteau away. It was mesmerising, clinical and a nightmare for England.Great entertainers: The Wallaby backline were clinical when given the chanceDavid Pocock is on another levelAfter two years out with two knee constructions, David Pocock has returned to put in consistent world-class performances, even playing at No 8 to accommodate Michael Hooper. Against England, he was a constant menace, stealing ball on the deck, swatting defenders with his oversized biceps and cutting down English defenders at will. A staggering display and he will be a certain contender for World Player of the YearSuperhuman: David Pocock was outstanding in the Wallaby backrowEngland fansTwickenham has often been looked down on for a sterile atmosphere but on Saturday night, HQ’s faithful backed England to the hilt. Swing Low bellowed around the old stadium time and time again as they tried to inspire England to victory. The support was heartening to hear and their backing will be required in the months to come.Bernard FoleyHe may not have the You Tube skills of his more celebrated contemporary Quade Cooper but Bernard Foley had the perfect game this evening – certainly his best in a Wallaby shirt. Twenty-eight points of Australia’s 33, means he is rightly lauded in the Southern Hemisphere and beyond. Take a bow, Bernard!What’s notNowhere to turn: England were outplayed by Australia as they exited the World CupEngland losing the breakdown battle. Several times, when England were on the front foot, David Pocock or Michael Hooper stole the ball to regain possession and nullify any England momentum. England had been warned of their dual threat but were powerless to stop the world’s best 7s from disrupting any clean ball. The questions over Steffon Armitage‘s continued exclusion will only grow in the coming days.England scrumA perceived strength of England was the scrum, so often their saviour against the Wallabies, but it shows the work of Mario Ledesma that when given penalties, they chose to pack down to gain the advantage. Joe Marler had a particularly tough evening and replaced after 49 minutes. They gave away five scrum penalties. Memories of Marseille in 2007 were well and truly banished for the Wallabies.Night to forget: England had a shocker at the scrum and were bettered by the WallabiesIsrael Folau is humanThree times in the first ten minutes Israel Folau’s handling let him down. First he was unable to shift the ball onto Rob Horne for a certain try, second he dropped a perfectly weighted cross-kick from Bernard Foley and thirdly he spilt a kick from Mike Brown which resulted in a breakway. Even the greats have off days, though it will surely be just an aberration.Hooper’s a lucky boyJust as the first-half came to a close, after Adam Ashley-Cooper had made yardage on the flank. Michael Hooper ran through the ruck and hit Mike Brown with the shoulder without his arms, sending Brown backwards. It was uncalled for and the citing officer maybe called in for a closer look with Wales on the horizon.Stats LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 5 – Penaties England conceded at the scrum, compared to Australia’s two394 – metres carried by England, compared to Australia’s 2517 – Linebreaks by England, compared to 5 by Australia, they also beat more defenders, 18 to Australia’s 1513 – Brad Barritt was the game’s top tackler.

New York Moving Toward E-15 Approval

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 6, 2016 Facebook Twitter The New York Department of Agriculture and Markets is proposing a new rule to allow the sale of E-15. The new rule would apply to all vehicles model year 2001 and newer. New York State consumes over 5.5 billion gallons of gasoline annually, making it the fourth largest gasoline market in the country. POET and Growth Energy have worked extensively over the last two years to get this regulation updated. “This proposal marks a major victory for consumers,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Consumers will gain access to cleaner and more affordable choices at the pump. E-15 is already used on the race track in Watkins Glen (NY) and if this proposal is approved, drivers will get to experience the same economic, environmental, and performance-enhancing benefits.”Skor points out that E-15 is already approved for nearly 90 percent of the cars on the road today. By increasing biofuel blends, she said America can reduce its dependence on foreign oil, cut carbon emissions, and reduce the need for toxic additives to gasoline that are associated with cancer, contaminated water, and smog.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News New York Moving Toward E-15 Approval New York Moving Toward E-15 Approval Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleSoybean Use Exceeded USDA Expectations Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The women headed to the Bahamas, where Caridi went on a two-on-one date with Higgins and Emily Ferguson.When the date was over, Higgins gave Ferguson a rose and left Caridi on an island, ending her run on the show.Caridi seemed shocked by the move.

Open letter to attorney-general about “Al Qaeda” threat to Iraqi community newspaper

first_img Receive email alerts Google experiments drop Australian media from search results Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en Yesterday, Reporters Without Borders wrote to attorney-general Philip Ruddock calling for urgent action in response to death threats against Al-Furat, a weekly serving Australia’s Iraqi community, by an anonymous caller claiming to belong to Al Qaeda. The letter asked Ruddock to take the threats seriously and to provide protection for the editor, Hussein Khoshnow, and his staff.“We believe it is important that the Australian authorities should find out who is responsible for these threats as quickly as possible so that Khoshnow is able to carry on working without any problem,” the letter said.An Iraqi of Kurdish origin who has lived in Australia since 1995, Khoshnow produces an Arabic and English-language secular newspaper with a circulation of about 20,000. On 14 January, a man claiming to belong to the terrorist organisation Al-Qaeda left messages on Khoshnow’s answering machine in which he threatened to destroy the newspaper’s offices in Sydney and Melbourne, and to “massacre” Khoshnow and “all the Kurdish and Shiite Iraqis in Australia.”After listening to the messages, Khoshnow reported the matter to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), which, he said, did not show much interest. Thereafter, the ASIO has not informed him of any progress with the case.Khoshnow suspects the death threats were made because of his editorial support for Saddam Hussein’s execution and for keeping Australian troops in Iraq .Reporters Without Borders believes the Australian authorities should solve this case as soon as possible in part to ensure that Al-Furat continues to operate, and in part to prevent this kind of intimidation from undermining the diversity of the foreign community media.
