Wallabies bounce back with a strong performance against South Africa

first_imgSaturday Jul 23, 2011 Wallabies bounce back with a strong performance against South Africa The Wallabies bounced back from the disappointment of a loss to Samoa by picking a far stronger outfit, resulting in a convincing 39-20 Tri Nations opener win over the touring Springboks in Sydney. The Australians scored five tries as they out-muscled and outstripped the disorganised South African team, who at times showed major flaws on defence, and lack of power up front. David Pocock was influential, while the Reds halfback combination of Quade Cooper and Will Genia did what they’ve been doing all season, as they took their opportunities and played attacking rugby. “I’m very lucky as a nine that the pack was going forward,” said Genia afterwards, paying tribute to the hard work and great platform set by a physically dominant forward pack. In Rugby World Cup year, this Tri Nations tournament – which ends just a few weeks before the showpiece event starts – is going to throw up a mixed bag of performances, selections, and the inevitable injury concerns. While South Africa have gone into the tournament with many players unavailable, this match was seen as an opportunity to blood young talent, and allow others to find their form. “The game was disappointing. We expected more and things could have got even uglier out there. If we had taken our chances it would have been easier but we didnt. They certainly turned their week around in terms of the breakdown and physicality. They were hurt in that area last week but they turned up today,” said captain John Smit. With more than 20 players injured or being rested, this touring Springbok side next have the mammoth task of taking on the All Blacks in New Zealand, a week from today. The Wallabies will play the All Blacks in two weeks time, so will enjoy the break. “The good thing now is we get some time to re-gather, recover, tend to a bit of detail and really hone in on the opportunity weve got at Eden Park,” said coach Robbie Deans “Its going to go up another notch. Were looking forward to that.” Below are some highlights from the match, which will be replaced with a better quality video when possible.

The Top 5 Worst Passes of All Time

first_imgWednesday May 14, 2014 The Top 5 Worst Passes of All Time Last week the Rugby HQ guys came up with this great compilation that has since racked up thousands of views. The preview image might have a little something to do with that, but the selection is top notch as always and features some absolute howlers.[Spoiler Alert: Below is a run down of the five clips that are featured, in order.] Amongst the bloopers is a clip that we posted many years back, featuring former Springbok prop CJ van der Line and his attempt at being a scrumhalf. As you can see, it didn’t go well.At number two it’s the Brumbies’ Matt Toomua and his entry for what was possibly the most forward pass ever. It happened against the Force in last year’s Super Rugby, and while that kind of mistake can probably be seen occasionally in grassroots rugby, this was a shocker. Funny though.Brent Ward’s pass that slipped out the hands in the NPC was fairly amusing too, but Six Nations fans will never forget the mayhem that was flanker Mauro Bergamasco’s outing at scrumhalf.The Nick Mallett experiment went horribly wrong against England as poor Mauro struggled, and was yanked from the game at halftime. Mallet explained: “I thought about substituting Mauro after 25 minutes but I didn’t want to take him off like that in front of the eyes of 80,000 people.”That worked out well. About as well as Willie Ripia’s attempt to swing it wide for the Hurricanes. Cory Jane is one of the most talented rugby players on the planet, but that face seems to be a magnet for the ball. Rugby HQ host Sean Maloney summed it up best: “In a world XV for balls to the face, Cory Jane is your captain and coach.”There’s some good stuff related to these players in the Related Posts below the video, but are there any other moments that you think could have been contenders for worst pass ever?

Simon Zebo’s bold claim about brilliant Racing 92 teammate

first_imgTuesday Jan 21, 2020 Simon Zebo’s bold claim about brilliant Racing 92 teammate Racing 92 may have narrowly lost to Saracens on Sunday, but fullback Simon Zebo has made the claim that his teammate Virimi Vakatawa is the best player in the world currently.ADVERTISEMENTThe former Ireland international missed his sides’ contest at Allianz Park through injury, but showered the France international with praise in response to his performance against the reigning champions.Virimi Vakatawa best player in the world right now🔵⚪️🙌🏾— Simon Zebo (@SimonZebo) January 19, 2020The outside centre bagged two tries in the first half in north London, running in from 40 metres for Racing’s first of the match, and gliding through from close range for their third.The Fijian-born powerhouse has been in sensational form all season for the Parisian club, and he brought that form to the English capital, looking unstoppable at times in the first half, running through players at will and proving to be almost impossible to put down.It was only in the second half, where Saracens were able to take control of the match and starve Racing of possession and the chance to move the ball wide to the 27-year-old, that they won the match. Such is the danger that Vakatawa poses that it is imperative to subdue him in order for any side to win.There are few players in the game that are more of a threat to defences every time they carry the ball than the former sevens star at the moment. He showed his pace on Sunday in his first try, while his power and offloading game has never been questioned.ADVERTISEMENTWith the Six Nations a matter of days away, he is destined to start in the 13 shirt at the Stade de France against England on the opening weekend, where he will be able to cement his growing status as one of the best players in the world.

Traumatic brain injury expert not surprised at planned legal action following shocking player revelations

first_imgWednesday Dec 9, 2020 Traumatic brain injury expert not surprised at planned legal action following shocking player revelations Traumatic brain injury expert Dr Willie Stewart believes it was “only a matter of time” before former rugby players with concussion-related issues considered legal action.ADVERTISEMENTA group of former internationals, including England World Cup winner Steve Thompson, are planning legal action for negligence against the rugby authorities over brain injuries they have suffered.The ‘test group’ for a potentially much larger action also includes another former England player, Michael Lipman, and ex-Wales international Alix Popham, according to Rylands Law.The planned action is against World Rugby, the Rugby Football Union and the Welsh Rugby Union, for “failure to protect (the claimants) from the risks caused by concussions”.Dr Stewart led the FIELD study research, commissioned by the Football Association and Professional Footballers’ Association, which revealed last year that footballers were three-and-a-half times more likely to die of neurodegenerative disease than age-matched members of the general population.“As we’ve learnt more about concussion and head injuries in sport, and the consequences of it, then I think it was only a matter of time before former players experiencing concussion problems sought some sort of legal status as to what is going on,” he told the PA news agency.“Prevention is better than any cure. In terms of rugby, although they’ve made great strides in attempting to identify brain injuries on the park, the number of brain injuries in rugby is still phenomenally high.ADVERTISEMENT“In terms of the number of brain injuries and concussions identified, it is only a fraction of the number that are actually occurring.“And then there is the problem of head impacts themselves, never mind concussions. Cumulative exposure to head impacts, we believe, is just as much a risk as a handful of concussions.”RELATED VIEWING:ADVERTISEMENTThompson, 42, cannot remember winning the World Cup with England in 2003 and says he wished he had never turned professional, while 40-year-old Lipman described himself as “a walking time bomb”.Dr Stewart, a consultant neuropathologist who is also a clinical associate professor at the University of Glasgow, added: “Rugby should be thinking about immediate measures to try and deal with this.“Whether it is rugby, whether it is football, any of these sports where the head is impacted frequently and regularly, have to be asking questions about whether it is sustainable to carry on like that.“Or, are we going to see this scenario of problems over the next decade, or even longer. The reason that things are so slow to change is because the exposure and the outcome are 30-40 years apart.“Players being concussed and injured nowadays, it will be 40 years before we are starting to talk about them and the damage that has been done.“Sport is not necessarily acting quickly because they don’t see the immediate effects of this, except now with players coming forward with lingering concussion issues, chronic headaches etc, they may be forced to act quicker.”World Rugby told BBC Sport: “While not commenting on speculation, World Rugby takes player safety very seriously and implements injury-prevention strategies based on the latest available knowledge, research and evidence.”The WRU told PA that, as it has had “no direct communication on the subject”, it would “just like to support the World Rugby comment”, while the RFU has also been contacted for comment.

Extension Of A Barn / PPA

first_img “COPY” Architects: PPA Area Area of this architecture project Houses Projects Photographs:  Philippe RuaultText description provided by the architects. The site on which this project is situated lies in the verdant valley of the Adour de Lesponne river, in the mountainous region of the Hautes-Pyrénées. It is positioned on an area of flat pastureland nestled against a steep slope and offers fine vistas over the valley below and lofty mountain peaks beyond. It is framed by an area of deciduous woodland and is partially occupied by an existing stone barn. This agricultural building, a remnant of the area’s lively agricultural past, has been converted into a holiday home. The quality of the conversion demonstrates great respect for the building’s vernacular architecture and great sensitivity to its rural setting, thereby preserving the authenticity and unique character of the site.Our purpose was to add an extension to the existing barn conversion, creating new living spaces (a guest room and multi-purpose room), along with a utility area and garage. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultRecommended ProductsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20WoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsThe specificity of the extension project is rooted both in the character of its natural setting and that of the existing building, and creates a double bind in terms of both typology and design. The project opposes the powerful architectural presence of the barn against a desire to ‘efface’ the new building and create a ‘topographical feature’ of the utmost discretion Yet at the same time, its design confronts the barn’s resolute sense of inwardness – protected by thick walls with scarce windows – with a new, more extrovert space, turned outwards towards the panorama of the majestic mountain landscape. As an echo to the tradition for setting mountain shelters against the incline of the hillside, our design explores the idea of partially buried living spaces. This not only enabled us to respect the integrity of the rural site, but also avoid creating a clash between the extension and the existing barn, by greatly reducing the volumetric impact of the new building within the landscape. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe extension was positioned in the southern portion of the site, on equal footings with the barn, and slips effortlessly into the naturally excavated lay of the land. By retaining the earth above it, the building opens up an ample exterior living space and a sheltered terrace area adjoining the barn. The façade unfurls along the incline and offers stunning views out across the valley and mountain tops. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe visible portion of the extension – the façade – first appears to be a simple log store, and only then goes on to reveal the living spaces which open up beneath the hillside. The log store is made from industrial steel and is part and parcel of the architectural structure of the whole. It incorporates access to the interior, provided at given points along the façade’s glazed wall.A dry stone wall, like those used as retaining walls for cultivating crops in the area, forms the extension’s rear elevation against the incline and juts out along the exterior terrace. The concrete slab forming the ceiling of the multi-purpose room is visually dissociated from the stone wall, thereby staging the natural light which floods in to illuminate it from above.The structural steel frame forms a deep and solid façade, serving not only to dry and store logs, but also filtering the light. From within the building, it invites the gaze outwards and frames our view of the surrounding countryside.

The Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill

first_imgPhotographs:  Tom Gildon, Keith CollieText description provided by the architects. The Shadow House is a new build private house in Camden, North London. It has won a 2011 RIBA Award, Best small house of the year award at the British Homes Award 2011, received a commendation at the 2011 NLA Awards and was longlisted for the Manser Medal. We carried out the entire project ourselves, from finding the site, through planning, design, construction and manufacture of the fittings, fixtures and furniture.Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe Shadow House is our own home, but is also an experiment in making a generic small city house. While working for other practices, we designed luxurious houses for private clients and worked on complex urban social housing developments; we were keen to extend this experience into building more modest single houses, in order to test our own ideas on living with less. We wanted to create intense interior spaces with maximum emotional effect. Aware of the overcrowded and overpriced London land market, we set out to find a suitable site.Save this picture!© Keith CollieEventually, we found a 38m2 scrap of land on St Paul’s Crescent in the Camden Square Conservation Area, just north of Kings Cross. It comprised a tumbledown parking garage abutting a terrace of well-preserved late-Victorian houses. Previous owners had made repeated, unsuccessful attempts to win permission to build a new cottage there, and the Planning Inspectorate had upheld the refusals at Appeal. An application to build a new house on a similar plot nearby had resulted in Judicial Review and the attentions of the ODPM. Although we were conscious of the extreme sensitivity of building in this area, the site’s chequered history depressed its value sufficiently for us to buy the site (for £75k) late in the summer of 2006. Save this picture!© Keith CollieOur dealings with the Camden Planners were protracted and delicate. We realised that building on such a contentious site would require a collaborative approach, so we developed the design in close conversation with the Council’s officers. The maximum envelope for the building was determined by its relationship to its neighbours: many ancient lights overlooked our site. The greatest argument, however, was over the building’s external appearance. Keen to employ rapid, low-carbon construction, our earliest scheme was entirely timber-built. However, the conservation lobby’s opinion was that the house should instead reflect its tough, industrial-era context. We took an extreme response to this brief, proposing a dutch-format engineering brick with a black glazed finish resembling the cut face of coal. We contrasted this with sheer, frameless glazing, and with accents of white statuarietto marble, echoing the plaster reveals and porticoes of the surrounding Victorian architecture. Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe tectonic of the house was therefore driven by its physical and legislative context. We had developed a robust and monolithic design, reinforced with an unforgiving, monochromatic skin. Because our budget was so tight, we planned to carry out as much work as possible ourselves and limited our palette to primary materials. We found these limits liberating rather than restricting: there is great poetry in practical things, so we reveled in finding simple means of assembling the house. Save this picture!© Keith CollieIn order to give a sense of space to what could feel like very constrained rooms, it was important for us to be able to modulate the section and work with some of the heights. Different ceiling heights, adjusted by changes in the floor below and by different height roofs produce a range from 3m in the living room to 2.1m in the entrance area. This allowed us to give each space its own temperature, sound quality and sense of cosiness or airiness. There are certain knots of intensity, where the spatial and functional requirements of the house are tangled up. Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe site lies on made ground, a mixture of mobile clay and spoil from the cutting of railway lines to Kings Cross and St Pancras. The substructure comprises reinforced concrete ground beams and piles, while the superstructure is in loadbearing masonry. Larch glu-lam beams (over-sized to maintain structural integrity in the event of fire) are laid directly into the brickwork to support the roof and floor structures. Floor finishes are in polished concrete, poured in-situ. Larch blockboard panels form a back-lit plafond français to the living room and bedroom, and line the deep internal reveals to form inviting window seats. The composition is completed in off-white fitted cabinetry, which we made in the house before sending them off-site to be spray-finished. Construction work began in August 2009 and we moved in, to our great delight, at the end of January 2011.Save this picture!© Keith CollieProject gallerySee allShow lessOil Silo Home / PinkCloud.DKArticlesRiga International Airport Winning Proposal / Haptic ArchitectsArticles Share The Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill ArchDaily Year:  Save this picture!© Tom Gildon+ 31 Share “COPY” Architects: Liddicoat & Goldhill Area Area of this architecture project Houses Projects CopyHouses•London, United Kingdom The Shadow House / Liddicoat & GoldhillSave this projectSaveThe Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill Area:  77 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/207581/the-shadow-house-liddicoat-goldhill Clipboard 2011 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/207581/the-shadow-house-liddicoat-goldhill Clipboard United Kingdom “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLiddicoat & GoldhillOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on February 15, 2012Cite: “The Shadow House / Liddicoat & Goldhill ” 15 Feb 2012.

Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates

first_imgArchDaily Photographs Japan photographs:  Shinkenchiku-sha Co, Ken YokogawaPhotographs:  Shinkenchiku-sha Co, Ken YokogawaText description provided by the architects. A word, “cow shed”, shown in a title might sound strange, but it is because I , who named it, simply think so. Of course, it is not a cow shed, but a proper residence, but it was named because of its condition and a sense of volume that the architecture has. It is located in Nasushiobara. It is not a country villa, but a building for a permanent dwelling.The shape of the architecture is “beginning of architecture”, namely, a base point and is a gate directing at nature. The site is located at a dead end place, when a street turns in a right angle, on a small hill of a newly developed residential district, which is 10 kilometers southwest of Nasushiobara station. That is, beyond the point there is only a natural forest open to the south. Therefore, the architecture is a gate towards the forest.Save this picture!© Ken Yokogawa  “Yes, just like Geoffrey Bawa ……” The gate is in 26 meters in the total length, rising up for 4.5 meters from ground level for a wall height. A polyhedron roof rises for further two meters up, so it has a volumetric scale that is unlike from ordinary residences. A blocking wall has a hole that penetrates a road and green of the forest can peek.Save this picture!© Ken YokogawaThough the site sets deep green forest in its front, in reality, it was in a triangular shape that a view is open towards the east side. I wanted to secure a view over a court wrapped in green by lowering the eastern land for a half floor (-1,500mm). I put the feeling of G.Bawa in half floor lower eastern side court and a garden open towards the upper level’s forest. For the interior space of the architecture, each room is arranged by a half floor skipped floors composition. In other words, residents come and go 26 meters long distance over an outdoor road that is penetrated in plan. In fact, the interior of polyhedron, this time composed of wooden three-dimensional trusses, is one-room space under one roof, consisted of spaces continuing kitchen, a skipped floor level study and to a guest room.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Exhibition Calls for a Bold Vision in the “Great Basin”EventEstar House / REC ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & AssociatesSave this projectSaveHayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/447974/hayasaka-house-ken-yokogawa-architect-and-associates Clipboard 2013 CopyAbout this officeKen Yokogawa Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNasushiobaraHousesJapanPublished on November 14, 2013Cite: “Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates” 14 Nov 2013.
