Ma’a Nonu loses his boot as he sets up Israel Dagg winning try

Posted on by

first_imgTuesday Aug 24, 2010 Ma’a Nonu loses his boot as he sets up Israel Dagg winning try Thing didnt go quite as planned for John Smit this past weekend. Celebrating his 100th Test match, Smit and his side were on track for their first win of the Tri Nations, until Maa Nonu slipped the grasp of the Bok captain, leaving his boot as a souvenir before setting up Israel Dagg for the winning try. The try was featured in the highlights a few days ago, but it was without replays and all the rest, so heres a longer version since there has been a lot of talk about the Smit missed tackle, and the fact that Nonus boot was left in his clutches. Nonu – who for many years has been known as a superb tackle breaker but not a great distributor – then raced down field with only one boot on before delivering a pinpoint pass to replacement Dagg, who scored the decisive try with things tied up at 22-22, and 79 minutes on the clock. Smit admitted to the error in the post match interview, and has since spoken out on the pain of the loss, and the feeling within the camp that it is only up to them to get out of the miserable hole theyve found themselves in during the tournament. “You got to look at yourself and the mistakes. To lose a test in that manner was very emotional for me. Losing is one thing and I understand it. It doesnt mean I like it,” Smit said, before discussing the similarities between this year and the 2006 loss of form. “It is important not to use 2006 as an excuse and be comfortable with it and then to think that in 2011 we will be as good as we were in 2007. That is the trap we cant fall into. In 2010 we have a much more experienced side that is getting beaten like this. Perhaps it is a high mileage thing where some players have had a bit too much rugby and their bodies are talking. “Suspensions havent helped us either, and as much as we have excuses, we only have ourselves to blame. There is hurt and this weekend will highlight that. Weve felt this feeling before. “You want to reflect back on this in a years time when you need it when youre 20-all against Fiji. You want to remember this hurt. You want to reference back to this moment when you feel like actual death to get you out of that,” Smit added. “It’s always hard talking after the game when you are the loser. To be honest, we had very little to take out of the first three games. This one we know if we are a little closer intensity we want every week, we know we can make any team ordinary. “This is the team that is leading the way in world rugby and suddenly their passes went down and we were tackling them backwards. Suddenly we started to look like world champions again. Sunday I woke up and realised the biggest positive is that if we play right, we will win any game every time,” he said. As for Nonu, hes in the form of his life and has finally silenced the critics, whether he’s playing with one boot or two.   Time: 02:29 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Other Sports Road to F1 has become tougher, says Arjun Maini after shock sports car switch

Posted on by

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Indian driver Arjun Maini’s road to Formula 1 has become tougher with his shock switch to sports car racing but he says it is a matter of time before he is back in a single seater series to pursue his “ultimate dream”. The 21-year-old from Bengaluru announced his switch to endurance racing last week and will be doing a full season of the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) besides making his debut in the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans.The move was unexpected, to say the least as he was trying to find his feet in the world of single seater racing including F2 and F3, which are considered as feeder series to Formula 1.”To be honest, I wanted to remain in single seaters but there were not many good options for 2019. A full season of endurance racing and the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans is what I have in hand and I am looking forward to this new challenge. Having said that, reaching Formula 1 remains the ultimate dream,” Maini told PTI.After an underwhelming F2 season last year when he felt let down by his own team, Trident, Maini could not secure a drive with another outfit for the following season. He also tested for Team Le Mans in the highly competitive Super Formula in Japan but, by his own admission, did not do enough to seal a seat. Arjun Maini’s road to Formula 1 – Pursue his “ultimate dreamIndia produced two Grand Prix drivers Narain Karthikeyan and Karun ChandhokJehan Daruvala won two races in Euro F3. “I reached Suzuka the night before the test and when you don’t know the circuit that well, you need some time to get up to speed. The team had already finalised its drivers so there was not much I could do anyway.”I realised how competitive the racing scene is in Japan and you have to really stand out amongst a high quality of drivers,” said Maini, who was also a development driver with Haas F1 Team for the past two seasons but did not get a test drive.He and Jehan Daruvala are seen as Formula 1 hopefuls from India, a country which has so far produced only two Grand Prix drivers in Narain Karthikeyan and Karun Chandhok.The 20-year-old Daruvala, who won two races in the Euro F3 over the previous two seasons, has joined Prema Racing in 2019 for the all-new F3.While Daruvala too has not been able to attract the attention of Formula 1 teams, Maini feels his contemporary has been wiser with career choices.”He has definitely been more clever, has done the right things at the right time. Looking back, I feel I should not have rushed into F3 after finishing second in British F4 back in 2014. Maybe I was better off doing Formula Renault 2.0 before moving up to F3,” said Maini.He says there is no point being an also-ran in F2 or F3 and “you must finish in the top three” to attract the attention of Formula 1 teams.Considering that the ELMS has only six rounds, Maini is exploring limited single seater opportunities, including another appearance at the Macau Grand Prix.last_img read more

Preview: 2010 World Cup Group A

Posted on by

first_img They will be appearing at the World Cup finals for the fifth time in succession and for the thirteenth time in total. They will also be South Africa’s opposition in the tournament opener. France End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 20Appearances: 11Best results: champions 1930, 1950Players to watch: defender and captain Diego Lugano, and strikers Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez Mexico’s coach Javier Aguirre told Fifa.com: “It is an honour to play against South Africa in the opening game. To know that the whole world will have eyes on us during the game is huge. There will be a lot of emotion and pressure.” Based on their ranking, South Africa shouldn’t progress beyond the first round, but host nations invariably perform pretty well; in fact, no host nation has previously failed to advance beyond the first round. At times, host nations have performed well beyond expectations too. One of the best examples of this, and a recent one to boot, is the performance of South Korea in 2002 when they reached the semi-finals. In their past four appearances in the Fifa World Cup finals, the Mexicans have always made it to the round of 16. It should also be pointed out that the French go into the World Cup as the beaten finalists from 2006. If they had come out on the right side of a penalty shootout, it would have been their second title in three World Cups. The big question is whether or not they can perform as well outside of Europe. Mexico showed good form in the latter half of 2009 with eight wins, one loss, and two draws. Overall, in a very busy year, they played 20 matches, won 11, lost six, and drew three. Veteran striker Cuauhtemoc Blanco, at the age of 37, will likely lead Mexico’s front line. Despite being ranked seventh in the Fifa World Rankings, France was unseeded for the draw. Their qualification was very controversial, thanks to an overtime victory over the Republic of Ireland in Paris in which the winning goal was set up by a deliberate hand ball by striker Thierry Henry. France finished second in their qualifying group behind Serbia, but booked their place with their controversial two-leg win over the Republic of Ireland. It marked the first time the French had qualified for the World Cup four times in succession. The only group containing two former Fifa World Cup winners: France (1998) and Uruguay (1930 and 1950). Hosts South Africa will have their work cut out for them! Benni McCarthy’s move from Blackburn Rovers to West Ham United in February could be a big plus for South Africa. Bafana’s all-time leading goal scorer needs match practice and if he gets it, it would help coach Parreira’s charges find a cutting edge. They have qualified only twice over the course of the last five World Cups. Even then, in 2002, they failed to make it out of the group stages. Uruguay snatched the last available qualifying place for the 2010 Fifa World Cup by qualifying fifth among South American teams and then beating Costa Rica in a playoff for a place in South Africa. It was the third time in succession that they had been involved in a playoff for a World Cup place. They have an enviable World Cup record, having won the tournament the first two times they entered it, in 1930 and 1950. In 1954 they finished fourth. Since then, apart from reaching the quarterfinals in England in 1966, Uruguay has found the going tough at World Cup level. While they may have been the last team to qualify, they have two quality strikers in Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez, which makes them a dangerous prospect for any opposition. Uruguay Previously Aguirre led the team to South Korea/Japan in 2002 before moving to Spanish club Osasuna, which he helped qualify for the Uefa Champions League. He then moved to Atletico Madrid and helped them to fourth in La Liga before he moved back to take over as Mexico’s coach once more. During 2009, the Uruguayans played 12 internationals. They won five of them, lost four, and drew the remaining three. They will look to Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar for inspiration. He showed during the Fifa Confederations Cup that he is able to excel among the world’s best players. End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 85Appearances: 3Best results: first round 1998, 2002Players to watch: midfielders Steven Pienaar and Teko Modise, and striker Benni McCarthy Mexico To reach the last 16, Bafana Bafana are going to have to recapture the form that they found during the Confederations Cup and maybe a little more than that. It will be tough, but then every group should be tough; this, after all, it is world football’s biggest and most important event. Despite having Henry – now his country’s leading international goal scorer of all time – leading the attack, they have at times struggled to find the back of the net. In fact, during 2009, they went through seven matches in succession in which neither team managed to score more than one goal. They played 12 matches, won seven, lost two and drew three. South Africa End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 7Appearances: 12Best results: champions 1998, third place 1958, 1986Players to watch: defender William Gallas, midfielders Franck Ribery and Lassana Diarra, and strikers Thierry Henry and Karim Benzema While they are still a team to be reckoned with, the French are no longer the free flowing skilful side that they were when the great Zinedine Zidane patrolled their midfield. Unfortunately for the hosts, 2009 was not a good year on the field. After an encouraging showing in the Fifa Confederations Cup in mid-year, the SA national team went through a run of eight losses in nine outings, resulting in coach Joel Santana being fired and replaced by his predecessor Carlos Alberto Parreira. No coach will have more World Cup finals experience than Parreira in 2010. Bafana Bafana are one of the lowest ranked teams in the tournament. However, as hosts, there was no need for South Africa to qualify for the World Cup. They will be contesting the event for the third time. In total, South Africa played 18 matches in 2009. They won only five games, lost 10, and drew three. Among their defeats were five losses to top 10 ranked teams Spain (twice), Brazil, Portugal and Germany, but to be successful at the World Cup those are the kinds of teams that Bafana Bafana will have to beat. End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 17Appearances: 13Best results: quarter-finals 1970, 1986Players to watch: defenders Rafael Marquez and Carlos Salcido, midfielder Andres Guardado, and striker Cuauhtemoc Blanco Uruguay is coached by Oscar Washington Tabarez, known as El Maestro. He previously led Uruguay to the round of 16 at Italy 1990. He has been in charge of the team since they exited qualification for the World Cup in Germany in 2006 after a penalty shoot out loss against Australia. Their most impressive performance of all came in the Gold Cup final in July when, after being level at nil-nil with the USA at half-time, they crushed the USA 5-0. If they can show a similar ability to step up their game on the World Cup stage, the Mexicans could be dangerous. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Assam NRC publishes ‘additional draft exclusion list’ with 1.02 lakh names

Posted on by

first_imgThe office of the Coordinator for the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam on Wednesday published an “additional draft exclusion list” containing the names of 1,02,462 people.This list is different from the one containing the names of the 40.07 lakh people excluded last year from among 3.29 crore applicants.On this additional list are those whose names were included in the draft NRC published on July 30, 2018, but were subsequently found to be ineligible for three reasons.“People found to be declared foreigners or doubtful (D) voters or with cases pending at Foreigners’ Tribunals discovered after publication of the draft NRC are in the additional list. So are their descendants, as applicable,” a State government spokesperson said.The other categories of people in the additional list are those found to be ineligible while appearing as witnesses in hearings held for disposal of claims and objections, and during the process of verification carried out by the local registrars of citizens registration.According to the office of the NRC Coordinator, the additional list was prepared under the provisions contained in Clause 5 of the Schedule of The Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003.“The additional draft exclusion list will not contain the results of claimants and objectees appearing for hearings held for disposal of claims and objections February 15 to June 26. The results of those hearings will be published only in the final NRC to be published on July 31,” an officer handling the NRC exercise said on the condition of anonymity.Officials said hard copies of the additional list would be available at the NRC Seva Kendras and offices of the Deputy Commissioner, Sub-Divisional Officer (Civil), and Circle officer for public viewing during office hours. Particulars of this list could also be viewed online at www.nrcassam.nic.in.“Those excluded will also be informed individually through letters to be delivered at their residential addresses along with the reason for exclusion. Each letter will mention the venue of claim submission and hearing. Such persons will have the opportunity to file their claims to be settled through a hearing by a disposing officer,” the officer said.The submission of claim and its disposal through a hearing would take place together. The hearing would start from July 5. All such claims would be disposed of thereafter and the results would be declared in the final NRC, the officer said.last_img read more
