Here the fly-half explains the rudiments of passing…Get a grip“Passing is an absolute fundamental of the game. For those small moments where the skill-set is really required, it’s crucial to have the ability to execute properly. The biggest thing about passing is getting your grip right. If you’re going to spin-pass, you need a good, strong grip.”High elbow“For a right-to-left pass, have your right hand towards the back of the ball, left hand guiding it towards the target. The key for a motion pass is a high elbow; it’s crucial to get your elbow up as the tendency is to drop the nose of the ball.“So if passing right to left, you want a high right elbow to keep the nose up and the forward spin going. It’s where the force of the pass comes from.”Catch-and-pass“For shorter passes, you want the ball in and out of your hands as quickly as possible. In that instance, when you’ve got less time, you want to catch the ball early. The action of passing is actually a catch-and-pass, so create a target for the passer by reaching out early. “Getting the ball into and across your body is essential. What you’re focused on is the speed with which you get into the catching position and using your wrists to make that short pass.”MORE SKILLS ADVICE… Practice makes perfect“I’ve made 500,000 or more passes and I still do five or ten minutes’ practice every day, usually before a session. At Newcastle we’ll do lots of drills: quick in and out, using your wrists, trying to pass the ball, not lift it, push at the target.“For a longer pass we try to achieve as flat an arc as possible, as there is always a ‘loop’ on the ball due to its spiral. Your hands should point towards the target at the finish.”This article appeared in the November 2018 edition of Rugby World magazine. The former England fly-half explains the key elements to one of rugby’s core skillslast_img read more

Invictus trailer released

first_imgThursday Oct 29, 2009 Invictus trailer released The trailer for the much talked about upcoming film Invictus was released earlier this week. The film is based around the events of the 1995 World Cup in South Africa, and features Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela, and Matt Damon as Francois Pienaar.Its directed by Clint Eastwood and looks likely to be an Oscar contender if all the hype is to be believed. Rugby is not huge in the US, but the political, historical, and human factor (which incidentally is what the film was going to be named) will no doubt capture the audiences attention.The title of the movie, Invictus, means unconquered and comes from the poem by William Ernest Henley which talks about being the master of my fateand the captain of my soul.Initial thoughts? Sceptical. The trailer seems to depict newly elected president Mandela as the mastermind behind the World Cup win in 1995, with the great man seemingly involved in every step of the planning, preparation, and training within the Springbok camp.Thats really not how it happened at all, but it will no doubt make for a good story that Hollywood will lap up and at the end of the day, its great exposure for rugby.Mandela did however have a huge role to play in terms of uniting a divided country, as well as motivating the Springbok players in a way that none of them ever imagined. By embracing the sport that was traditionally a white man’s game in South Africa, he brought the country together in a way that had never been done before.Director Eastwood seems to have done an amazing job with the authenticity of the spectacle. Its hard to tell at this stage if the epic will be primarily a rugby movie or more politically based (dare I say probably the latter), but from what you can see in the trailer, they havent missed a detail in terms of genuine kit, advertising boards, and player likenesses.Its also filmed entirely in and around the cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town.Accents will always be a hot topic when films of this nature are made, but so far it sounds as if Freeman and Damon have done a pretty decent job, despite Freeman sounding truly American at both the start and end of the trailer.The one concern is that Damon is 5ft10, while Francois Pienaar is 6ft3. Hopefully when watching the film it’s not too distracting for die-hard rugby fans. Afterall, it’s not aimed at us only anyway.It will be released in December, and all in all its going to be of great significance for the sport of rugby in general, and will hopefully be an accurate representation of what happened during that ground breaking month of June 1995.

The organisation called for swift and thorough investigations into the two latest deaths with the aim of preventing further killings. RSF_en February 15, 2021 Find out more Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today condemned the fatal shootings of two Iraqi journalists yesterday in Iraq. TV journalist Dina Mohammed Hassan was shot dead outside her home in Baghdad as she was leaving for work. Photographer Karam Hussein was gunned down outside his home in the northern city of Mosul.”We are extremely disturbed by the circumstances of these killings, which have the hallmarks of targeted murders,” the organisation said. “Many Iraqi journalists have been killed since the start of the year, some probably because they were working for foreign news media, others simply because they were journalists and armed groups that do not respect free expression are trying to intimidate the entire news profession,” Reporters Without Borders added.The press freedom organisation asked Iraq’s interim government to conduct swift and thorough investigations with the aim of identifying those responsible for these killings and preventing similar incidents in the future.It also reiterated the principle that “journalists are neutral observers whose work must be protected and respected in order to ensure that news reporting is as free and thorough as possible.”Hassan, who was gunned down in the Baghdad neighbourhood of Al-Adhamiya, worked for Al-Hurriya, a TV station run by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) which is headed by a Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani.Hussein, 22, had been working for the past three months for the Frankfurt-based European Pressphoto Agency (EPA). He previously worked for the US news agency, the Associated Press (AP). Reached in Frankfurt, EPA editor Cengiz Seren said four gunmen were waiting for him outside his home and shot him in cold blood before he could flee.Iraq continues to be one of the most dangerous places in the world for the news media. At least 29 journalists and 15 other media workers have been killed there since the war began in March 2003. The number killed since the start of 2004 is 29, of whom 23 were Iraqis.

Go Daddy explains suspension of sites, denies political pressure

first_imgNews China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures ChinaAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF_en April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China Help by sharing this information to go further China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimescenter_img News Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more News News Correction:Reached by Reporters Without Borders, US web hosting provider Go Daddy has denied receiving any form of pressure from the Chinese authorities. The initial story was published before Go Daddy was directly asked for a response. Go Daddy said the server hosting the Chinese human rights sites was used to attack other servers, and the company just responded to complaints from clients that were the victims of these attacks, which were a “serious violation of the terms of service.” According to Go Daddy: “the shutdown also had nothing to do with bandwidth – our concern directly related to what our investigation into complaints about the server attacks revealed”. The company has told the Chinese dissident sites why they have been suspended.____________________________________________________________August 21, 2007Reporters Without Borders today called on US web hosting provider Go Daddy to explain why it suddenly withdrew hosting for several Chinese sites specialising in human rights in China. According to a report on the news website Boxun , around 10 Chinese human rights sites were suspended without explanation on 17 August.“The situation of online free expression in China is difficult enough already, so foreign companies need to act with the utmost transparency,” the press freedom organisation said. “One cannot rule out the possibility of Chinese government pressure on companies hosting websites that are already blocked in China. Go Daddy’s silence leaves too much room for doubt.”Go Daddy notified about 10 Chinese sites including chinesepen.org and Huang Qi’s 64tianwang.com on 17 August that they could be suspended because of a server problem and asked them to provide log-on passwords within 72 hours so that the problem could investigated. The sites were nonetheless suspended later the same day. The Boxun report disputes that the server problem mentioned was a significant issue.Go Daddy gave no explanation for the suspension, and instead told the site owners that they would now have to begin a reactivation procedure that takes several days. But meanwhile, any site that remains disconnected for more than a day or two is considered dead.One of the editors of the Boxun site told Reporters Without Borders that the suspension of the human rights sites may have been the result of pressure from the Chinese government or what passes for standard business practice among Internet service providers. He condemned Go Daddy’s failure to provide the sites with information.
