SCOTT Moore has described James Roby as a phenomen

Posted on by

first_imgSCOTT Moore has described James Roby as a phenomenon following the hooker’s amazing start to the Engage Super League season.Speaking ahead of this Friday’s trip to Crusaders, the 23-year-old believes the 2007 Man of Steel can only get better.“Robes has always been a freak and if you look at his stats he is killing it this season,” Moore explained. “He is part of a pack that has begun to show real good go forward. Jammer is playing well as is Josh Perry too.“But Roby is killing it and I’d like to know what his secret is – he is a phenomenon.“Although I’ll miss this week’s game with a calf injury I am enjoying the season so far. Of course all players want to be in the starting 13 but whatever job I am given I want to do my best. And if you’re winning and picking up trophies then there aren’t any problems.“We have hit a little groove at the moment which is long overdue as we expected to start a lot stronger.“We have to take it week by week now and continue to climb the ladder. We are a hardworking and honest team; we are all friends and we want to play well for each other.”Scott broke on to the scene as a 16-year-old against Wigan in 2004 and his career has taken in spells on loan at Castleford and Huddersfield.“Those periods away made me a better player,” he continued. “It was a steep learning curve because I had got so used to winning in 2006 and then I had to get used to losing again.“Castleford had just come up and so had strung a team together and it was a struggle. But I learnt a lot from Terry Matterson and it set me up for the very successful year at Huddersfield.“I’m learning from Royce Simmons too. He is a good witty bloke and isn’t one for barking orders. He has subtle quiet words with you and it is a happy camp.“I have had to learn how to play with James Roby too which was weird at first. But we’ve found some cohesion and are getting better all the time. Playing just two positions is better for my game too.”last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgFOLLOWING a highly successful seventh Magic Weekend the RFL are delighted to be able to make an early announcement for fans to confirm the dates for Magic Weekend 2014.All 14 Super League Clubs will return to the Etihad Stadium, Manchester over the weekend of Saturday May 17 and Sunday May 18.The 2014 Magic Weekend will be the second year of a two-year agreement with the RFL to stage the event, with the fixtures for the weekend to be confirmed later in the year.More than 60,000 fans enjoyed a superb weekend of sporting action at Magic 2013, with an action packed programme of matches and entertainment for all the family.The new tram link to Etihad Campus made access to the stadium even easier for many fans and the Fanzone was buzzing with activity including a whole range of fun challenges run by Super League partners including Heinz, Foxy Bingo, Brut, and Irn Bru.Commenting on the weekend RFL Chief Executive Nigel Wood said: “Magic Weekend 2013 was a great success, showcasing the extraordinary sport of Rugby League to a wide audience, both at the games and on television. Once again the fans created a fantastic atmosphere, both inside and outside the stadium in the Fanzone, and I believe the whole sport can be rightly proud of the Magic Weekend.“I am delighted that we are able to confirm the dates early for fans for 2014 and I look forward to another superb festival of Rugby League at the Etihad next May.”Councillor Rosa Battle, Manchester City Council executive member for culture and leisure, said: “The 2013 Magic Weekend proved to be a real treat for Rugby League fans and brought the country’s most talented players to Manchester. 2014 will see the Magic Weekend return to our city and will once again demonstrate that Manchester is a world class sporting destination with state of the art facilities to match.”Manchester City Operations Director Steve Sayer added: “Now in its second consecutive year at the Etihad Stadium, It was fantastic to once again welcome back legions of Super League fans to East Manchester.“The festival atmosphere in and around the stadium not only demonstrates the passion of the fans, but also why the Magic Weekend continues to grow in popularity. It’s a privilege to host such a great event and we can’t wait to do it again in May 2014 when the Magic Weekend returns for another action packed weekend of Rugby League.”last_img read more

Its the most eagerly anticipated clash of the sea

Posted on by

first_imgIt’s the most eagerly anticipated clash of the season so far with the League’s two top sides going head to head.“We’re looking forward to playing in front of a full house,” Justin said. “It wouldn’t matter where the teams are sitting in the League, the derby game is the one everyone talks about and gets up for.“The fact we both sit at the top and both are playing really well just adds to the excitement. All neutral fans of the game should be really excited by it.“It’s great we’re at home and it’s awesome to have sold out. For the players and coaches you can’t ask for much more. It is shaping up for a great game.”Saints will be without Adam Swift for the match after the winger damaged his shoulder in the win at Hull KR on Friday.However, the good news is he doesn’t need surgery and, providing his rehab goes well, should return in a few weeks.“We’ve not decided who will slot into that spot yet,” Holbrook added. “Tommy Makinson is likely to go on the wing and Ryan Morgan is fit to play too. We have options though – Ryan can return or we can leave Jonny Lomax in the centres.“It’s a decision we need to get right.“Our focus is only on this week’s game and I’m sure that is the same for every team. We will try and do everything we can to win and then assess for Monday. It is tough on the players and not ideal but at least they don’t have to train too much and they get to roll into the next game. They like that.“It’s good for our game to have more games and more televised ones too. It is good to grow the sport.”last_img read more

Watch Government will only intervene if there is a failure in the

Posted on by

first_img SharePrint In a press conference on Monday, Parliamentary Secretary Roderick Galdes announced the 500 new homes that will now bring up the total of social housing accommodation to 1,700. During his contribution, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that the government will only intervene if there is a failure in the sector and as a general rule will allow the market forces to dictate the way forward. Muscat also said that the government will take social measures that will not misbalance the economy. He said that a family cannot be burdened with more weight than it is able to carry. He also said that social housing planning requires a long term strategy.The Prime Minister stated that whilst the KPMG reported that the country is not experiencing a bubble in the property sector, we have in fact overheated the sector with that have increased at an exorbitant rate. He also said that the government has learnt that policies and measures nee to be consider the different economic cycles.Joseph Muscat also said that the government does not practice a trickle down economic policy, where businesses and the rich get a reduced tax rate in order to be able to reinvest their financial assets back into the economy in the short term.Social accommodation should not be inherited The Prime Minister explained that the €60 million that the government will be granting for the social accommodation have been funded through the National Development and Social Fund which in itself is being funded by the IIP scheme, and will cover for 500 to 1,000 residences.Muscat stated that people have forget their sense of entitlement for social housing as the government will be taking repossession of the accommodations once those using them will no longer need them.Watch: An urgent need to increase social housing units3,300 applicants still waiting for social housingWhen Newsbook.com.mt asked him how the government is going to implement such measures, the Prime Minister replied that these measures will not apply to those that are already occupying social housing but only to new cases. He explained that if an individual get state aid, and also has children that have socially moved upwards, then these same children will not automatically inherit the social housing of the parent.Muscat apologisesPrime Minister Joseph Muscat was also asked whether he was apologetic about the statement he made during the political debate against Partit Nazzjonalista and Opposition leader Adrian Delia last week when he distinguished between jobs that should go to Maltese and jobs that should go to foreigners. To this the Prime Minister replied that after seeing the footage he would like to apologise for the comments that he made.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

Most importantly the experience, ‘invites people to listen before anything else.’Credit: Luke ZerafaSpecial Consultative StatusAccording to the International Director, Peace boat has a special consultative status within the United Nations, making it one of the very few to possess the title and likely the only one ‘floating in the sea that promotes peace and discussion on climate change.’She explains that all their activities are all run and operated in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

US has officially run out of its stock of IPv4 addresses

Posted on by

first_imgAdvertisement This week the American agency which oversees net addresses in the region gave out the last block of these vital net components.It said companies in North America should now accelerate their move to the latest version of the net’s addressing system.Now Africa is the only region with any significant blocks of the older version 4 internet addresses available. – Advertisement – Rising prices The older addressing system, called IPv4, was created when the net was being set up in the 1970s. The system can support up to 4.3 billion addresses but the massive growth of the online world has swiftly depleted this.The successor addressing system, known as IPv6, can handle a vast amount of addresses and is unlikely to ever run out. IPv6 has been available since 1999 but only now are large numbers of firms starting to use it.“Organisations should be prepared to help usher in the next phase of the internet by deploying IPv6 as soon as possible,” John Curran, head of the American Registry for Internet Numbers (Arin) told tech news site The Register.[related-posts]Shifting to IPv6 can be tricky for some ISPs because, for the time being, they have to support both old and new addressing schemes. Running both and translating from one to the other can break some services and introduce delays that irk customers.Afrinic, which hands out net addresses in Africa, currently has about 2.3 million IPv4 addresses left and these look set to run out by early 2019, statistics suggest. Stocks of IPv4 addresses ran out in other regions several years ago.Axel Pawlik, managing director of Europe’s net address administrator Ripe NCC, said Arin exhausting its stock of IPv4 addresses was a “landmark moment in the history of the internet”.“This means that organisations across North America can now only obtain IPv4 addresses by trading for them,” he said. “For networks looking to grow, this will increasingly create pressure in the immediate future. ”The steady depletion of IPv4 addresses has kicked off a market in buying and selling chunks of addresses that large or defunct companies no longer use.The Arin depletion might spark a significant rise in prices, suggests research by the IPv4 Market Group which acts as a broker for firms with addresses to sell.The sale of several big blocks of addresses from very large companies including Merck, Lilly, Dupont and Nortel could spell problems for anyone looking to buy a significant number of addresses, it said. The lack of single big blocks would probably drive prices upwards as anyone requiring lots of addresses would have to get them from several sources, it said. In May, the UK’s Department for Work and Pensions started selling off some IPv4 addresses it owned and got about £7 for each of the 150,000 it sold.Arin’s announcement came as BT, the UK’s biggest ISP, unveiled that it planned to enable its entire network for IPv6 by the end of 2016.[BBC]last_img read more

Back Al Kazeem with magicial insurance option from Star

Posted on by

first_imgPrince Of Wales’s StakesRoyal AscotTIME: 3.45pm, C4MAGICAL OFFER ON AL KAZEEMIt’s a pretty good offer, if we do say so ourselves.Back AL KAZEEM to win the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes this afternoon and if he is unplaced you will get your money back.Yesterday’s offer was the same deal with DAWN APPROACH who won and I think there’s every chance that Al Kazeem will do the same today.With the offer it’s a solid insurance policy if the horse does flop.But there’s every reason to be positive with Al Kazeem who, for my money, beat Camelot fairly and squarely in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh last time out and I think he will do so again today.Camelot is increasingly looking like a horse that was the best of a bad generation.And since connections chose the admirable attempt at the Triple Crown, which was narrowly thwarted, there have been a few question marks about Camelot.Most significant of all has been his recovery from a severe bout of colic and he proved he was back with a win, a little workmanlike, at the Curragh before returning to the track to be defeated by Al Kazeem.Those in favour of Camelot today will point towards that being a tactical race and the chance that Camelot will continue to improve this season as he returns to full health and fitness but he meets a horse in Al Kazeem this afternoon who is at the very top of his game.STAR FORECAST(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)6 points win AL KAZEEM (3.45 Royal Ascot)(-9 points Tuesday)TV EXCUSESOfficials have exposed some of the excuses people give for not having a television licence.One thought he was exempt because his pet corgi was said to be related to one of the Queen’s dogs.Another household claimed they merely used the glow from the set as a lamp to help them read.More than 400,000 people were caught last year watching TV without valid paperwork, which is more than 1,000 a day.The annual levy – £145 for a colour licence and £49 for a black and white – is used to help fund the BBC’s domestic television, radio and internet services.TV Licensing has launched a drive to encourage more people to pay up and has teamed with a Bafta-winning animator to bring some of the excuses to life in a short-film, published on YouTube.One person is said to have told officials they did not bother to buy a licence because they had stolen the TV set.last_img read more

STAR PREVIEW CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL day four

Posted on by

first_imgBET NOW WITH STAR SPORTS 08000 521 321 [dropcap]C[/dropcap]ue Card will bring the house down if he can record a third Cheltenham Festival success by claiming the gold medal today but the recent form of the Tizzard yard must be a concern and that comment obviously applies to Native River too.Mind you, I seemed to mention something similar about the form of Willie Mullins yesterday too. That project worked out well Tizzard is 0-26 over the last fortnight with six places.We’ll never know whether Cue Card’s date with Gold Cup glory should have been 12 months ago. He was still travelling so strongly before falling three out when a 5/2 chance leaving the path clear for the 9/4 fav Don Cossack to beat Djakadam by four and half lengths.Djakadam gets the chance to swap silver for gold and must have a good chance now the ground has come up good again and the (sudden!) return to form of the Mullins stable.The race has a real open look to it though with Don Cossack missing and Cue Card, now an eleven-year-old, bidding to become the oldest winner of the race since 1969 when What A Myth won it as a 12-year-old.The race last produced a major shock in 2014 when 20/1 chance Lord Windermere scrambled home and I’m hopeful another long-shot today, Champagne West, can grab a slice of the action.The Henry de Bromhead stable have been flying this season and Champagne West arrives in great form having won the Thyestes Handicap Chase at Gowran Park in fine style.The main concern is the ground – the bulk of his form has been with give in the ground but the going was good when he finished fourth in the 2014 Albert Bartlett so it’s not inconceivable he can run well – especially if a lot of the question mark horses disappoint.Best of luck this week – if you are at Cheltenham check us out in the ring or call us on 08000 521 321 or use the live chat feature here.
