Former World Cup Winner and new Bath Academy Director, Danny Grewcock commented: “Club rugby at community level is so important to our game. Barkers Butts in Coventry was my training ground and I saw there how important sponsorship, support and funding is to the success of a club. I loved coming here to Percy Park today to see some of that support put into practice.”And adding to this, former British & Irish Lion, John Bentley commented: “We had a great time today, putting the First XV through their paces! It’s important to recognise that clubs like Percy Park could generate the next England international, so to see SSE coming in with much-needed support for clubs all over England is really encouraging for the growth and success of rugby in England.” SSE will continue to support both Bracknell RFC and Percy Park RFC by supporting them with the resources they need. SSE is committed to supporting rugby clubs around England and will continue to provide them with the tailored support over the coming months to ensure that grass roots rugby stays at the very heart of England.To have your say in SSE’s club rugby support programme and to tell them exactly what your club needs, log on now to www.SSERugby.com.

Only a week later SSE headed to Percy Park RFC in Newcastle with community ambassadors Danny Grewcock and John Bentley to help deliver the good news. The pair put the club’s First XV through their paces in a gruelling training session for 90minutes. SSE provided the club with much needed equipment and funding for a weekly training session for their most promising players. Tom Croft with Bracknell RFCSSE, has launched its National Community Partnership with the Rugby Football Union (RFU) alongside ambassadors, England International Tom Croft, former World Cup winner, Danny Grewcock and former British & Irish Lion, John Bentley. Over the last few weeks, the ambassadors have been busy putting National and Divisional First XV rugby players through their paces and supporting SSE in asking the question, ‘What Clubs Need’.The three year partnership will see SSE invest significantly to support community rugby in England and take on the title sponsorship of the National and Divisional Leagues. Tom Croft headed to Bracknell RFC, which was the first club to be announced as a beneficiary of the additional resources, as SSE contributed to an existing fund for their much-needed flood lights.England flanker and World Cup hopeful Tom Croft enjoyed the event, which brought back memories of his own community rugby background at Newbury RFC before joining the Leicester Tigers academy: “Having grown up in the English club rugby system, I know how much difference any additional support and investment can make to local rugby clubs – especially the smaller clubs in the lower Leagues. It’s great to see SSE taking an interest in the future of the game by investing where it is needed most. That will make all the difference. It certainly has here at Bracknell.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS
Defensively there are bright sparks, as Geoff Parling stole four lineouts against the Reds and one against the Waratahs. Tom Croft also pinched a lineout off the Waratahs, while Evans and Gray have taken four collectively all tour. Paul O’Connell and Alun Wyn Jones have nabbed three together.Thief: Geoff Parling pinching lineoutsEvans is miles ahead in terms of calling to himself, taking a staggering eight lineout balls against the Combined Country, which is the same number Jamie Heaslip has taken throughout this tour. When others are playing the ball is spread around a lot more, with O’Connell only taking one lineout per game in the two matches he has started.Therefore, the statistic both point to straightforward solutions, as well as creating some additional issues for the selectors.A lineout bossed by O’Connell ensures variety. Twin him with Parling and there is a chance more opposition ball will be stolen, while Jones is happy to play the target as O’Connell is running misdirection plays. With such variety, Parling could happily slot in but he is more of a defensive player who can climb up there, but a positive Gatland means the Englishman could spring from the bench.If Gatland is that positive, picking to attack rather than stifle, then Croft and Heaslip are instant selections for belligerent lineout rugby.Nonetheless, all of this is irrelevant if these jumpers cannot be hit. Tom Youngs is the most confident of the hookers and is making slightly less slip-ups. The efficient and well-oiled set-piece under O’Connell could sweep Youngs along with it and Hibbard could also be caught in O’Connell’s slip stream. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Too much mustard on it: The Lions have been under pressure and wayward in the lineout at points during this tourBy Alan DymockTHE STATS don’t make good reading after the British and Irish Lions 14-12 loss to the Brumbies.Despite their win the Brumbies carried 23 times less than the Lions, with 22 carries. They did so for 104 metres less, with only 188m gained to the Lions’ 292. They made one clean break to the Lions three and lost the ball to penalties, knock-ons or turnovers more often with 17 coughed up compared to the Lions’ 14. However, they scored a try when the Lions did not and they made 112 tackles compared to the Lions 69 during the try-line shut-out.Crestfallen: Rory Best trudges off after loss to BrumbiesThere is a greater issue than this, though. While the Brumbies slowed and slugged away at the breakdown, irritating the Lions before rushing at them with supercharged shoulders, it was the lineout that dismayed fans of the tourists more.It became apparent early on in the game that hooker and captain Rory Best was having a bit of a wobble – a similar wobble to a blancmange in a flight simulator – and that the Lions needed to claim ball and drive. So Ian Evans called the ball for himself and took it cleanly four times.That may not seem a lot, but the Lions lost eight lineouts during the game, with four stolen and desperately needed possession.In the end the tourists claimed 13 of their own throws and stole three. It is a simple fact that any momentum is killed when the hooker lobs a squiggler or was picked off, particularly when the team is against it at the ruck and their dejected hooker has to mash into a scrum.This problem is not a new one. The Lions may have blitzed Combined Country but they lost three lineouts to the strugglers. They lost two as the smashed the Western Force and three when they were hustling past the Barbarians. The common denominators in those games has been Best and Richard Hibbard. BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 08: Geoff Parling of the Lions beats Ed O’Donoghue to the ball during the match between the Queensland Reds and the British & Irish Lions at Suncorp Stadium on June 8, 2013 in Brisbane, Australia. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Pressure is a given at Test time, though, and Hibbard must be made to believe in his throwing and it would be no surprise if he ends up rooming with O’Connell, Jones or even Heaslip in this Test window.Best would do well to be paired with one of these, too, because if there is one thing we have learned from this tour it is that players can be scythed by injury at any time and the Ulsterman definitely has a part to play yet. He needs to believe in the cause and he needs help. His team mates can help him get over his lineout yips.
The World Cup winner has a new fund-raiser for his foundation – and you could take part too Lewis Moody to take on Amazon challengeLewis Moody was renowned for his fearlessness on the field, throwing himself into tackles and scavenging for the ball amidst piles of bodies, but away from rugby there are things that cause trepidation – spiders for one! And that fear is something he will have to face on his next adventure.The 2003 World Cup winner, who won 71 caps for England and three for the Lions, has embarked on a series of fund-raising challenges for the Lewis Moody Foundation since retiring and next on the agenda is a trip to the Amazon, where he will encounter plenty of creepy-crawlies.“There are numerous challenges,” says the 41-year-old. “One will be living outdoors for six nights. Normally for challenges we’ve been in full tents or even on a raised platform off the ground. This one I’ll be in a hammock swinging from the trees, open to the elements – warmth, cold, insects. I hate spiders!”World champion: Lewis Moody with the Webb Ellis Cup in 2003 (Getty Images)Before we delve into the challenge in more detail, let’s find out what he’s raising money for. Moody and his wife, Annie, were inspired to set up their charity in 2014 after meeting Joss Rowley Stark, who had cancer and sadly passed away when he was 16. The foundation helps families dealing with brain tumours, which are the biggest cancer killer of under-40s.Since launching the foundation, which works with the Brain Tumour Charity, Moody has taken on the HeadsUp series of challenges, which took him to all four points of the compass. There have been trips to the North and South Poles, a 1,000km cycle in Vietnam and Cambodia, and a raft, cycle and trek across Costa Rica.Now he – and former Leicester and England team-mate Tom Croft – are taking on the Amazon Survival Challenge, where they will trek through the jungle, canoe the river, track crocodiles and meet an indigenous tribe. And you could join the two rugby legends on the adventure, which is being led by former Special Forces officer Wayne Hoyle. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Can’t get to the shops?

TAGS: Leicester Tigers “The beauty of these trips and why I absolutely love it is that we’re doing something with a collective goal and are properly taking people out of their comfort zone,” says Moody. “I might be slightly more active than the average person, but someone who’s been sat behind a desk for 20 years, with no adventure experience, can join us. Whether you’re 20st or 9st, 6ft 10in or 5ft 2in, we get everyone to the end.“The enjoyment, the camaraderie, the experience – everyone has the most incredible time. You see people at the end who realise they’ve achieved something more than they ever imagined. It’s a really unique and bespoke experience.”Water work: This challenge will involve canoeing down the AmazonThere are just 15 places available on the trip, which costs £3,950, and those taking part must also raise at least £4,000 in sponsorship. The dates are yet to be confirmed due to the coronavirus and travel restrictions, but you can find out more by emailing [email protected] foundation is running other challenges too. In 2021, there is a cycle-trek in South Africa, with the reward at the end of watching the second Test between the British & Irish Lions and the Springboks. Or there are virtual challenges being run with Myzone during the lockdown. Find out more here.It’s eight years since Moody retired, but it’s clear his thirst for adventure remains – and he’s raising money for a good cause along the way.

In that GC is trying to streamline the gathering into one week rather than 10 or more days, would it not in the future make better use of time to have such presentations when both Houses are meeting together, leaving the peculiar acts of business in both Houses to occur then, giving all more time to transact business?

Held every three years, General Convention is the bicameral governing body of the Church.

Dr. Gregory Straub, and Bishop Catherine Waynick, bishop of the host diocese of Indianapolis.On July 4, live programming will commence with the opening addresses from Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori and President Anderson.Mike Collins, Manager of Episcopal Church Multimedia Services, explained that the Media Hub will feature three media players, one for each House and a special one for videos featuring local and churchwide mission.“We learned a lot from our experience at General Convention in 2009 that we are bringing to the wider church in 2012,” noted Mike Collins, Manager of Episcopal Church Multimedia Services. “Instead of having one player we will have several, with an interface that will allow people to view what interests them. That might be live coverage from the House of Bishops or Deputies. It might be a worship service or video of mission. We are providing options so people can view and follow what is important to them.”He continued, “The videos we will be screening on the third player depict the Episcopal Church in mission and ministry. The first video that will be featured is a church in Santa Monica, California called Thad’s. Celebrities, surfers and others make up this new and growing congregation.”It’s not too late to enter your video for the Make Your Mark video contest. The videos – about two minutes in length – can be submitted prior to General Convention on the Episcopal Church web site www.episcopalchurch.orgThe Media Hub is just one of the many state-of-the-art offerings from the Office of Communication that are designed to share the action and report on the activities of July 5-12 event.

The homes were inspired by Hamilton pool, a deep natural escarpment which forms a dramatic waterfall near Austin. In the spirit of that waterfall, rainwater is directed to the end of each Riverview Garden house and falls 3 stories in a sheet to form a dramatic waterfall, not unlike the rain screen found in classical Chinese gardens. The rainwater is then collected in an 80’ long shared pond which on a breezy day provides some natural cooling to the houses.Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio Each unit contains 2000 square feet of conditioned space and an equivalent amount of outdoor living space. The units are raised off the ground to provide covered parking and a recreation area below while capitalizing on views of the lake above the tree line.

MalaysiaAsia – Pacific to go further RSF_en MalaysiaAsia – Pacific January 29, 2021 Find out more December 4, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government signals crackdown on bloggers Reporters Without Borders voiced alarm that Malaysia could introduce repressive legislation on the Internet after Science and Technology Minister, Kong Cho Ha, said the government planned new rules to block its malicious use and prevent bloggers posting news jeopardising social harmony.“The government of Abdullah Badawi seems to want to impose on the Internet the same strict controls that it already applies to the press,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Malaysian bloggers currently enjoy an outspokenness denied to journalists in the traditional media. It is vital for the country’s democratic life that the Internet is not pushed into self-censorship. “The minister made his statement at an event on 3 December 2006 organised by the Association of the Computer and Multimedia Industry, Malaysia (Pikom) in which he made clear his determination to regulate news put out by bloggers.“We are talking about creating cyber laws to control those who misuse the Internet,” he said. “We need to have stricter cyber laws to prevent these bloggers from disseminating disharmony, chaos, seditious material and lies. We want our bloggers to be responsible.” His statements were all the more surprising given that Internet regulation usually comes under the Energy, Water and Communications ministry.The government is also planning to get bloggers to register with the information ministry. Even though Kong Cho Ha admitted that the system would be difficult to apply, it could nevertheless push Malaysian bloggers daring to criticise the government to stop publishing or self-censor.The government frequently says that it does not impose any censorship on electronic media.
