Dan Biggar hits the crossbar from point-blank range

first_imgMonday Jan 10, 2011 Dan Biggar hits the crossbar from point-blank range In what was a scrappy Magners League game, Leinster beat Ospreys 15-10 at the RDS on Friday night. Jonny Sexton kicked all Leinster’s points, while Dan Biggar had a shocker with the boot, including a kick that he’d rather forget about. Ospreys fielded a weakened side that weren’t expected to test Leinster much, but a losing bonus point left the Welsh region feeling as though they’d done okay, considering the difference in the lineups. Neither side will have been overly pleased with how they performed though. Jonny Sexton did well for Leinster however, kicking all their points with five penalties, while Justin Tipuric scored a try for Ospreys. Biggar didn’t have a great night, as he missed a few vital kicks late in the game, and was seemingly inspired by goings on at Wembley recently as he smashed one of his penalties directly into the crossbar. The ball moved on the tee as he was about to strike it, which seemed to cause the blooper. It was amusing, but coach Scott Johnson downplayed the poor kicking performance, which included just two successful shots out of seven attempts at goal. “I thought Dan played very well; we dont do blame for missing kicks, especially when one of them was as a result of the ball falling off a kicking tee on his run up. I was proud of the way he played and proud of the way the guys played generally,” he said. While it’s good for a laugh, goal kickers will inevitably have bad nights occasionally, but young Biggar kept his chin up and will no doubt bounce back.. in much the same way as the ball did.

Dixon try proves crucial as Highlanders beat Hurricanes to Super Rugby title

first_imgSaturday Jul 4, 2015 Dixon try proves crucial as Highlanders beat Hurricanes to Super Rugby title The Highlanders earlier beat the Hurricanes 21-14 in a sensational Super Rugby Final that featured brilliant offloads and an incredibly high tempo of play throughout. One of the tries of the match was scored by flanker Elliot Dixon, or was it?The first half was played at a thousand miles an hour, with both sides showing that despite it being a final, if the mindset is right, players can attack from anywhere on the park, retain possession and produce some thrilling rugby.Both sides threw the ball about, with very little kicking for territory, and very few scrums. Referee Jaco Peyper let the game flow, and fans were treated to a spectacle that will not only go down as one of the best finals of all time, but easily one of the more memorable Super Rugby games to have been played.Following a well taken Ma’a Nonu try, the Highlanders hit back when Elliot Dixon surged over the line, showing incredible pace and power before grounding the ball. He didn’t look too convinced himself – probably not helping his cause – but TMO Ben Skeen decided that after many looks at it, the try was indeed scored.Dixon said post match that he’s had a few close calls this season, so expected this one to go against him too. Luck was on his side though as the try was awarded and the Highlanders stayed ahead, as they were all game.“I actually thought he’d lost the ball but we tend to look at these things out of our own eyes,” said Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd. “At the end of the day, it was pretty critical.”They went on to win their first ever Super Rugby title, a phenomenal effort away from home to what has been the best team in the competition.

Drew Mitchell scores dramatic try at the death as Toulon snatch victory from Wasps

first_imgMonday Jan 18, 2016 Drew Mitchell scores dramatic try at the death as Toulon snatch victory from Wasps Toulon claimed a dramatic win over Wasps at the Stade Felix Mayol last night, coming from behind to score a superbly taken late winning try through Wallaby winger Drew Mitchell. The 15-11 Pool 5 win denied Wasps a historic away win, and put the French side top of the group.With ten minutes left in the match Wasps took a 11-8 lead through Guy Thompson, as Toulon looked like they would struggle to hang on to their impressive unbeaten at home record.They held their nerve though, stretching Wasps after a sustained period of pressure, allowing All Black centre Ma’a Nonu to take his pick of runners, and put Mitchell through the gap after the Wallaby ran a stunning line.Nonu had two men outside so with the Wasps defence spread, they had little chance of withstanding the pressure. Freddie Michalak converted the try and the hosts won what was for the most part a scrappy, tense contest.They now need to beat Bath away next weekend to secure a quarter final berth, while Wasps need to beat Leinster to achieve the same result.Quade Cooper finished off the opening try of the match, a length of the field effort.

Rugby world reacts after farcical Champions League football dive

first_imgThursday Mar 7, 2019 Rugby world reacts after farcical Champions League football dive A number of rugby players, past and present, have taken to Twitter to discuss a farcical dive in football’s Champions League. The incident saw Roma’s Edin Džeko belatedly fall to the ground when the referee was near, after touching heads with an opposition player. ADVERTISEMENTIt was a flagrant act of cheating, with the aim of getting the other man sent off.In light of this, a number of players have derided him, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek retorts.https://twitter.com/FreddieBurns/status/1103595996406272001https://twitter.com/johnbarc86/status/1103595752230699008https://twitter.com/jimhamilton4/status/1103590352961843205https://twitter.com/martynewilliams/status/1103410993219153920I nearly drowned.

Thank Dzeko for showing me what a real injury looks like. #PrayForDzeko https://t.co/7dqjUzMQGm— Henry Fraser (@henryfraser0) March 7, 2019Rugby, of course, is not exempt from behaviour like this, but it is much less rife and has perhaps never seen something as deplorable as this.But with the danger of this actually becoming more common in rugby, some do not see the funny side in this as much.ADVERTISEMENThttps://twitter.com/brianmoore666/status/1103421597740863488https://twitter.com/NeilBack/status/1103419965095505921Even referee Nigel Owens had his say on the matter, saying behaviour like that is not acceptable in any sport.Rugby players and footballers often get compared to one another and how they conduct themselves on the pitch, and it is a debate that will rage on.

Leo says Stander moving back home straight after retirement makes a mockery of the game

first_imgTuesday Mar 16, 2021 Leo says Stander moving back home straight after retirement makes a mockery of the game Pacific Rugby Players Welfare chief executive Dan Leo has questioned rugby’s residency rules after Ireland No8 CJ Stander announced his retirement at the end of the season in order to return to his native South Africa.ADVERTISEMENTIn a Tweet following the Munster back row’s announcement, Leo said that Stander returning to South Africa “makes a mockery of the game far more” than players with Pacific Island heritage seeking to represent a second country during their career.Leo has since deleted the Tweet, but this is a cause he has continuously fought for and discussed at length in his 2020 documentary Oceans Apart: Greed, Betrayal and Pacific Island Rugby.“Congrats on a great career CJ,” he wrote.“But in my mind someone getting residency after 3 years, making a national team then moving back home as soon as they retire makes a mockery of the game far more than Pacific Island heritage players wanting to turn out after a stand down period.”One thing that has been frequently mentioned by fans since Stander dropped his retirement bombshell is how committed and dedicated he has been to Munster and Ireland ever since he moved to Thomond Park in 2012 from the Bulls.ADVERTISEMENTLeo is not arguing against this, but he sees the entire process as a flaw in rugby’s residency rules which allowed Stander to represent Ireland after three years, although they have now been extended to five.Meanwhile, a player like Bristol Bears’ Charles Piutau has fought an exhausting battle in order to compete for Tonga, where his parents are from, because he represented the All Blacks six years ago.Though Piutau is coming close to realising his dream through the Olympic sevens loophole, Wasps’ Malakai Fekitoa faces a similar problem despite being born in Tonga.Given his role, Leo is championing the rights and opportunities for Pacific Island players and may have deleted the Tweet after a backlash. But his comment is not about Stander, rather the rules World Rugby has in place. He emphasised this in another Tweet, saying the rules “make a mockery of the game”.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 12 WEEKS AGO CJ Stander announces retirement with emotive… 13 WEEKS AGO Ireland snatch win but Johnny Sexton admits… 13 WEEKS AGO Tributes pour in as Sonny Bill Williams thanks… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Recently completed, the house stands elevated on a hillside neighbourhood of single-storey houses on the fringe of MacRitchie Forest Reserve.Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangThe screen comprises two layers of mature hollow bamboo sections specially ordered from a Javanese bamboo forest. Each section of 150mm in diameter were cut to length, cleaned and left in its natural finish. Suspended with a wire clip to a hanging bar, the bamboo sways in the slightest breeze and gently collides much like a giant wind chime, making the house both visually and aurally responsive to the weather. They can be hand adjusted to create a selected view or a privacy screen. The sound of the bamboo curtain varies through the day, a low timbre registers of the passage of the prevailing morning and evening breezes. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangIn practical terms the bamboo curtain is a perfect climactic screen that effectively dispels the heat of Singapore’s tropical sun from penetrating the house. During heavy rainstorms, common during the monsoon season, the screen also reduces horizontal driving rain. The increasing din of the colliding bamboo curtain reminds its occupants to the on- set of a rainstorm and hence to close doors and windows.Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangThe Bamboo Curtain House is owned and designed by Sim Boon Yang of the award-winning eco.id Architects based in Singapore. Following a minimalist principle of rational simplicity, he designed the house as a box, organised into four equal bays that accommodated the lifestyle of his family of five.Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangAn attempt to build the house with the least number of processes meant a recurring palette of natural unfinished bamboo, the ‘off form’ concrete walls and ceilings, black granite and smoked oak floors: a deliberate juxtaposition of roughhewn masculinity with warm and refined finishes. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangEnvironmental consideration also figures in the design of the house. In addition to the bamboo screens and skylights, the roof pavilion is installed with a solar hot water system and incorporates a rain water collection system that channels rainfall into an underground cistern. Because of the tropical monsoon rains that fall over Singapore, a substantial volume of water can be collected for the usage of the house. The roof over the master bedroom suite is sowed with a wild grass lawn that insulates it from solar gains.Descriptive Walk-Through Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangA 15m lap pool anchors the front edge of the house. It amplifies the vista out from the main living and dining spaces reflecting the sky and trees and creating a sense of retreat in an otherwise dense neighborhood. Forest trees were planted to suggest that the forest reserve cascaded down onto the site. The 4 m tall entrance doors features a black bamboo handle in its natural colour and finish. The foyer is guarded by a tiger painting on an old Tibetan door. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangThe dining area is linked to the kitchen by a stone clad portal that frames the bar and a pair of carved wooden ‘nagas’ of Thai origin. The dining table is 3m slab of rain tree wood sitting on custom designed steel legs that echo the splay of the architectural plans. Save this picture!elevationThe main stairs leading up to the bedrooms act as a display stage. The house is experienced as a series of unfolding settings for the owners diverse collection of Asian arts and artefacts. They include tribal canoe paddles from Irian Jaya, antique wood and stone carvings and a variety of animal skulls. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangArriving on the second floor, narrow skylight floods a double-height gallery with natural light yet limiting much direct solar ingress. A FicusLyrata tree in a pot thrives here. It has the spatial qualities of an indoor courtyard leading to the bedrooms. A row of book shelves house a small library, along with photographs and Asian artefacts.In the master bathroom, black bamboo (a species of naturally dark hued bamboo) is suspended below a glass skylight and acts as a backdrop to the bathroom. Open sides allow breezes that flow through the bamboo curtain creating a beautiful scintillating effect. The vanity top is a slab of ‘lychee’ wood sitting on trestle legs. An antique mirror leans against a wall clad with silver travertine completing an important room in the house.Project gallerySee allShow lessKhokak Panoram Resort / FCHY Architect Lab, C2H3.chArticlesVideo: Ames Boston HotelArticles Share Houses Architects: Eco-id Architects Area Area of this architecture project The Bamboo Curtain House / Eco-id Architectslast_img read more
