Buckle up for Munster v Leinster

Big day out: Thomond will be heaving with home supporters on Saturday but Leinster will make their presence knownBy Alan DymockON SATURDAY several Irish rugby fans may feel compelled to abandon their other halves, lock themselves in the living room and turn on the telly. Partners may be left to attend to long walks alone as fans sprint back to the car and the comfort of sports radio. Limerick may be a no-go area for anyone with eardrums.Big game boy: Paul O’ConnellIt’s Munster versus Leinster this weekend.Attempting a prediction on this one may be a bit like a fishing trip to the Dead Sea, but suffice to say there will be plenty of interest in the result.The hosts have recalled Felix Jones and Paul O’Connell to the starting lineup and with BJ Botha and Conor Murray returning to the bench there is more of an element of strength to this Munster side.Leinster, on the other hand, have brought back Sean O’Brien to partner Kevin McLaughlin and skippe Jamie Heaslip, with impressive youngster Jordi Murphy pulling out due to a long-term injury. The biggest surprise for them, though, is that they start Aussie code-hopper Lote Tuqiri at outside centre, partnering Gordon D’Arcy. This twins with the much smaller surprise – if you can even call it a surprise at all – that Ian Madigan is the fly-half Matt O’Connor and Leinster have favoured for the biggest game of their season so far, with Jimmy Gopperth left on the bench alongside the two props who are growing in stature daily, Jack McGrath and Martin Moore.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Still capable of magic?: Lote TuqiriMunster are third and Leinster are fourth in the table at the moment, but at this stage of the season that is irrelevant and this is particularly the case with such decorated rivals butting heads again.These two last met at Thomond in April, when Leinster won 22-16 thanks to a late Brian O’Driscoll try, Leinster’s only try of the game against Munster’s two. The great man won’t be on the field this time, so the opportunity to create a moment of magic will have to fall to someone else this time round. Is Tuqiri, in particular, still capable of such conjuring? If he isn’t then Casey Laulala and the tank-bashing defender James Downey will be opposite him hoping to greedily snatch the chance away from him.Munster: Felix Jones; Keith Earls, Casey Laulala, James Downey, Simon Zebo; Ian Keatley, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilycoyne, Mike Sherry, Stephen Archer; Donncha Ryan, Paul O’Connell; Peter O’Mahony Capt., Niall Ronan, James Coughlan.Subs: Damien Varley, James Cronin, BJ Botha, Donncha O’Callaghan, CJ Stander, Conor Murray, JJ Hanrahan, Denis Hurley.

Francois Trinh-Duc flick through the legs sets up Imanol Harinordoquy try

first_imgWednesday Feb 9, 2011 Francois Trinh-Duc flick through the legs sets up Imanol Harinordoquy try After a great opening weekend of Six Nations rugby, it seems as though there were a few key incidents or moments in the games that grabbed most of the plaudits and attention. This is one of them.You will have seen the highlights of the France vs Scotlandgame here on RD earlier in the week, so by now have probably already seen this try but I thought it would be nice to post it on it’s own for those of you who fancy seeing the neat bit of skill again.Francois Trinh-Duc was brought back into the French side as flyhalf after Damien Traille was fairly unsuccessful there during the Autumn Internationals. It seems as though it was a good move by coach Marc Lievremont, as the 24 year old got his backline going nicely all match, including this outrageous flick pass that resulted in a try.It was no doubt just a 50-50 pass that came instinctively, but it worked perfectly and number eight Imanol Harinordoquy was the worthy beneficiary of the flick pass, finishing well before bringing a smile to the face of young Trinh-Duc, who was probably as surprised as everyone.The last time we saw a scoring pass from a flick through the legs must have been that try Joe Rokocoko scored against the Springboks in 2003. On that occasion it was the man you’d most expect it from, Carlos Spencer. This time, it’s Trinh-Duc who has been added to the archives. :: Related Posts :: Carlos Spencer through the legs pass Time: 01:43ADVERTISEMENT 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.

He was the owner and skipper of the Kelpie in 1914 and along with his sister Kitty and Foynes sailors George Cahill and Tom Fitzsimons they conveyed a second consignment of arms from Germany to St Tudwall’s Island, off the Welsh coast.The 600 rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition were transferred from there to the Chotah, owned and skippered by Limerick-born Sir Thomas Myles, then President of the Royal College of Surgeons, and were landed at Kilcoole, County Wicklow on August 1, 1914. A total of 15,000 rifles and 45,000 rounds of ammunition were landed in 1914.To honour these Irish nationalist activists, a commemorative booklet is being published by the Mount Trenchard Memorial Committee. The memorial plaque, to be unveiled this weekend, has been sculpted by Cliodhna Cussen.A shuttle bus will run this Sunday between the churches at Foynes and Loughill to the Mount Trenchard churchyard.

Parliamentary Stamp Duty holiday debate to go ahead on Monday

first_imgThe property industry is to get its parliamentary debate on a Stamp Duty holiday extension after the Petitions Committee announced that MPs will be able to debate the popular e-petition on 1st February via a virtual debate.This had originally thought to have been delayed after Jacob Rees-Mogg announced that the chamber in which e-petitions with more than 100,000 signatures can be debated was to be closed ‘until further notice’ due to Covid.The Stamp Duty e-petition in question, which has been signed by over 125,000 people so far, asks for a six-month extension to the Stamp Duty holiday for homes for sale under £500,000.The online debate will not be hosted by the Petitions Committee at 4.30pm on 1st FebruaryElliot Colburn, member of the Petitions Committee, will lead the session. Jesse Norman MP (pictured, above), Financial Secretary to the Treasury, will respond. A second petition, relating to musicians’ problems touring in the EU after Brexit, is to be heard the week after.Catherine McKinnell MP, Chair of the Commons Petitions Committee (pictured) says: “I’m delighted we have been able to schedule two e-petition sessions, where Members from across the House, including those self-isolating and shielding, will be able to scrutinise the Government directly on issues raised by petitioners.“As was the case when Westminster Hall was closed due to Covid-19 last year, we have had to innovate to find ways to hold the Government to account, and crucially to voice the concerns of petitioners in the House of Commons, while our usual debates cannot be held.“As these petitions demonstrate, there are important issues affecting hundreds of thousands of people that are being missed. Their calls for help and support must be heard.”The petition session will be available to watch live on Parliament TV and Parliament’s YouTube channel.Industry reactionDominic Agace, chief executive of leading estate agency Winkworth, says: “I welcome the opportunity for MPs to discuss the predicament facing many thousands of their constituents who are facing an impossible deadline – and hope common sense will triumph.”Elliot Colburn Jesse Norman Catherine McKinnell Jacob Rees Mogg January 26, 2021Nigel LewisOne commentPaul Le Bas, Millerson Millerson 26th January 2021 at 1:11 pmWith the massive delay in searches here in Cornwall, I personally believe that the fairest way is to allow those sales which where agreed before Jan 1st or Jan 31st(cant decide which is best) to benefit from the stamp duty break.

25 Years Later, Wu-Tang Clan Brings ’36 Chambers’ To Life Onstage In Philadelphia [Photos/Review]

first_imgOne of the defining musical experiences of my life was the first time I discovered the Wu-Tang Clan. A collective of emcees from New York City with a unique and eclectic sound, it was a bombastic and unwavering experience which quenched my thirst for a sound I never knew I was looking for. I remember taking the cassette tape from my older cousin—who was entrusted in keeping us out of trouble and away from bad influences—and hiding in the basement of my grandmother’s house, ready to expand my horizons. As the first breaths of “Bring da Ruckus” enveloped my Walkman headphones, I knew that this experience was to be like no other, and that my musical palette would forever be altered and skewed towards a lifelong fandom and devotion to all things hip-hop. Indeed, Wu-Tang is for the children, and this eight-year-old child was hooked.On Thursday night, the principal members of the Wu-Tang Clan (minus the late, great Ol’ Dirty Bastard) kicked off their 25-year celebration of their first studio album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), at Franklin Music Hall in Philadelphia. Initially, only one show was scheduled in Philadelphia on January 25th, but that show sold out so fast and demand was so high that the group added an additional show, which took place on January 24th.Related: Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, & De La Soul Announce Joint U.K. TourEach member of the crew had their moment to shine on stage, providing the collective raw energy that helped them blaze their trail throughout every crevice of hip-hop in the 90s. Along with the surviving principal members, one of the biggest delights of the night was ODB’s son, Young Dirty Bastard, joining Wu-Tang on stage and standing in for his legendary father on “Shame on a Nigga”, “Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber”, and “Protect Ya Neck”. YDB had his father’s classic avant-garde lyrical delivery and mannerisms down so well, a casual observer may have mistaken him for the real deal.Method Man and Ghostface Killah crushed the microphone with hardcore rhyme schemes and deafening deliveries, paired well with the methodical lyricism of RZA and the slam poet style of GZA. Raekwon gave a thrilling performance from the time he hit the stage, and Inspectah Deck’s bravado was the crescendo of an impressive show. Perhaps the most exciting portion of the evening came via an incredible performance of “C.R.E.A.M.”, the group’s most recognizable track from the album. The moment the classic beat (sampled from the opening chords of “As Long as I’ve Got You” by The Charmels) blasted through the speakers of the venue, the crowd came alive unlike it had all evening, energized by the grittiness of the lyrical beatdown and amplified by the head-nodding drum pattern.The standing-room crowd went ballistic with each classic track’s opening notes, and each expression of allegiance to the group (as the initiated will know as “Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nuthin’ to fuck wit’”) struck like lightning across a summer sky. Considering the rarity of this moment—of the entire Clan together onstage—this performance felt as legendary as the original album and reinforced Wu-Tang’s legacy as hip-hop’s premier collective.Wu-Tang Clan’s weekend 36 Chambers anniversary run will continue tonight, Friday, January 25th at Franklin Music Hall before landing back in New York City at Terminal 5 on Saturday, January 26th.Below, you can check out a gallery of photos from Wu-Tang Clan’s Thursday night performance courtesy of photographer Adam Barnard.Wu-Tang Clan | Franklin Music Hall | Philadelphia, PA | 1/24/19 | Photos: Adam Barnard Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Coronavirus: Messi, Barca stars to get pay cut

All professional players at Barcelona, including six-times world player of the year Lionel Messi, as well as non-playing staff, will face a compulsory wage reduction during the period of lockdown, the club’s Directors decided at a board meeting held via video conference. Spain was put into lockdown on March 14 with citizens only allowed to leave their homes in order to conduct essential business. The period is expected to be extended this weekend once the initial 15-day period has finished. Spain has been Europe’s second-most impacted country by the pandemic behind Italy, with the death toll surpassing 4,000. Over 56,000 people have tested positive for the virus. “Among the measures adopted, it’s worth noting those related to the workplace are motivated by the need to adapt the contractual obligations of the club staff to the new and temporary circumstances that we are experiencing,” Barcelona said in a statement. “It is a reduction of the working day, imposed by the circumstances and the protection measures carried out, and, as a consequence, the proportional reduction of the remuneration provided for in the respective contracts.” Barca also said they have made their club and annex facilities available to the Catalan government’s regional health department.Tags: CoronavirusFC BarcelonaLa LigaLionel Messilast_img read more

Real Estate bill passed in Rajya Sabha: Here’s how it will help home buyers

first_imgThe Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill, 2015, which aims to protect the interests of home buyers and bring more transparency to the sector, was passed in the Rajya Sabha today.The bill was first introduced in 2013 and amendments were made to it by the present government. The Finance Ministry, in 2012 paper on black money, had pointed out that the real estate sector is vulnerable to black money because of under-reporting of transactions.Here are some important features of the bill:Better organised real-estate sectorThe real estate sector in India is unorganised which leads to various discrepancies in the functioning. The bill will establish state-level authorities called Real Estate Regulatory Authorities (RERAs) which will regulate transactions related to both residential and commercial projects.The authority will grade the projects helping customers to make better decisions.Timely completion and handoverOne of the problems which buyers face is that they don’t get possession of property as promised by the seller because of delayed construction among other issues. The bill ensures that 70 per cent of the money taken from buyers has to be kept aside in a separate bank account and this money can only be used for construction activities. This will ensure that the sellers don’t invest the money received from one project into another project.Accurate informationAs per the bill, it will become mandatory for sellers to disclose all information like project layout, approval, land status, contractors, schedule and completion of project with customers as well as the RERA.advertisementAppropriate punishmentIf the developer fails to handover the property to the buyer on time, then he would be liable to pay same amount as interest which he is charging from the buyer on delay in payment. Also, the property cannot be sold on the basis of ‘super area’ which includes both flat area and common area. If the developer violates the orders of appellate tribunal, then he/she can get a jail term of up to three years or penalty.Allottees association and after-sales serviceIt has been made mandatory to set up an allottees association within three months of the allotment of major units/properties so that the residents can manage common facilities like a library and a common hall. Also, if the buyer finds any structural deficiency in the property, then he/she can contact the developer for after-sales service within one year of possession. The promoters or developers cannot make any changes to the plan without consent of the buyer, the bill states.last_img read more
