How will the 2017 Lions beat the All Blacks?

Posted on by

first_img Ready for battle: The Lions will face the stiffest opposition of all in New Zealand Wales competed for two Tests against the All Blacks but faded badly in the Third Test, so how can the Lions can contest to win the Series in 2017? RW does the analysis TAGS: Highlight Although Wales eventually lost the Test series 3-0 to the All Blacks, nobody could claim they did not go down fighting. Wales scored five tries in the first two Tests and totalled over 20 points in both games. The Lions will need to at least match those totals to have a chance of winning the series next summer.I believe that Wales approached the series in the right way, keeping ball in hand and looking for opportunities to counter-punch rather than trying to suffocate by strong defence and forward play. The Kiwis tight five already average well over 50 caps per man and the set-pieces will not be an area of weakness for them.Looking at this footage from Sky Sports, Wales took every opportunity given to them to counter off turnovers and kicks in those first two Tests. At 30:35, Williams detects the space between the two All Black locks, aided by a screening block from his tight-head Samson Lee on Luke Romano. The Welsh 10 Dan Biggar manages to insert himself into the space between Naholo and Smith, and Wales win the ball back: In the first example, Wales won the ball back in the air, in the second Dan Biggar drew the penalty for a Fekitoa block.Additionally, after an initial penetration through the middle by centre Jonathan Davies, Wales were also once again able to unlock the New Zealand D just before half-time by going wide-to-wide in four phases.*With the examples above in view, the selection of the Lions backs next summer doesn’t look too difficult at all. Twin first receivers will probably be necessary in order to bolster the kicking game and enable those quick wide-wide transfers, and the Lions have two available in the shape of George Ford at 10 and Owen Farrell at 12. Wales’ Jonathan Davies can supply the power and straight-line threat at 13.In the back three, a combination of Scotland’s Stuart Hogg at 15, with Liam Williams at 11 and either George North or Anthony Watson on the right wing, would give an excellent balance of speed, elusiveness and power.The battle-lines have already been drawn for next summer!Watch the 2017 British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand live only on Sky Sports in Great Britain and Ireland.

In the still at 50:34, Naholo is contesting the ball at the tackle and the replacement full-back, 22 Beauden Barrett is standing alongside him.Another ball out of the first line via Alun Wyn-Jones is enough to set up another chance out wide: LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img SaveSave The 11 defenders are defending in the line, but 15 Smith and 14 Naholo are struggling to make up ground to the far side of the field as the ball goes through the hands. At 8:14 Wales have what they want – a one-on-one between Liam Williams and Savea, a situation they believe is a potential ‘win’.Williams makes ground all the way up to the All Black five metre line, and when the ball comes back infield off the side-line, they keep the foot on the throat with a pass from Alun Wyn Jones from the first into the second line of attack: Post-break at 30:37, No 9 Aaron Smith and No 8 Kieran Read come into view in the zone between the backfield and defensive front, while Ben Smith and Waisake Naholo are both maintaining their depth expecting the kick.They are too far away to prevent Williams making the break and laying off a scoring pass to Webb at 30:40.Later in the second half from a New Zealand 22 drop-out, George North picked up a loose ball and ran it back deep into the All Black 22m area: SAS GEO ERRORThis video is not authorized in your locationRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO read more

Psychiatry professor criticises ‘discriminatory’ euthanasia

first_imgNewsTalk ZB 17 October 2019Family First Comment: So many great points made in this interview…. “The long and short of it is anywhere from 70 to 75 per cent of people who are actually killed, so called euthanised, in countries where it is legal are the elderly and  the poor.”  “When we talk to the elderly and the poor about why they wish to be killed or euthanised, they say they have become a burden on their families and on society, so is it really a choice.”  The research found that suicide rates have increased between five and 15-percent in countries where euthanasia is legal. #rejectassistedsuicideA professor says that legalising euthanasia has been devastating on the elderly, poor and disabled.Otago University doctors have reviewed the laws, practices and modifications in countries where it’s been introduced.Old Age Psychiatry associate professor Yoram Barak says our public debate isn’t well informed.He’s calling on psychiatrists to say ‘no’ to euthanasia.“The long and short of it is anywhere from 70 to 75 per cent of people who are actually killed, so called euthanised, in countries where it is legal are the elderly and  the poor.”Barak says the debate centres on choice, rights and dignity, but euthanasia becomes discriminatory.He says ignoring history means we’d be killing people without options.“When we talk to the elderly and the poor about why they wish to be killed or euthanised, they say they have become a burden on their families and on society, so it is really a choice.”He says the Dutch government’s considering extending euthanasia to anyone over 70 years old who feel they’ve fulfilled their role in life.The research found that suicide rates have increased between five and 15-percent in countries where euthanasia is legal.READ MORE: https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/heather-du-plessis-allan-drive/audio/yoram-barak-psychiatry-professor-criticises-euthanasia-calls-it-discriminatory-and-contradictory/last_img read more

Kusal in control as Sri Lanka clinch six-wicket win

Posted on by

first_imgKUSAL Perera helmed a composed Sri Lankan chase as the hosts clinched a six-wicket victory in the opening Twenty20 International with Bangladesh in Colombo.The Test and one-day series between the sides both ended all-square, but opener Kusal led the way with 77 at the top of the order after Bangladesh set a target of 156 for the win.Seekugge Prasanna and Thisara Perera rounded off the victory, the former hitting an unbeaten 22 from 12 deliveries to help see Sri Lanka home.Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat after a rain-delayed start, but saw opener Tamim Iqbal bowled for a duck by Lasith Malinga (2-38) after just two deliveries, in stark contrast to what his opposite number achieved later in the match.The arrival of Sabbir Rahman (16) at the crease helped steady the ship as he combined with Soumya Sarkar (29) for 57 runs, but the pair fell in quick succession in the sixth over.Mosaddek Hossain (34 not out) and Mahmudullah (31) helped push the Bangladesh total further, although 155-6 was not a score that would give Sri Lanka too much of a headache.Their reply was effective, if unspectacular, with Kusal present in the middle until four balls before Thisara hit the winning boundary.Upul Tharanga (24) and Asela Gunaratne (17) both chipped away at the target, while Prasanna stepped things up a gear as the match neared a conclusion.With Kusal finally dismissed by Taskin Ahmed (1-33), it was left to Thisara to knock the same bowler for four and earn victory for Sri Lanka.The second and final match takes place at the same venue tomorrow.last_img read more

Chelsea v Arsenal preview: Match details, kick-off time, facts, predicted line-ups

Posted on by

first_imgWHEN IS THE MATCH?Saturday September 19, kick-off at 11:45am (Ghana time)WHERE IS THE MATCH BEING PLAYED?Stamford Bridge.WHY IS IT WORTH FOLLOWING? Chelsea are in disarray. A tetchy Jose Mourinho was recorded making an off-colour remark to Everton manager Roberto Martinez in the wake of his side’s 3-1 defeat on Saturday – all because his counterpart ‘jumped ahead’ of him in the interview queue. Martinez’s response added weight to what many already believe – that Mourinho is only gentlemanly when he’s winning. “When he beat us 6-3 last season he was such a nice man,” said Martinez in the recording. “I prefer him like that.”Now chuck Arsene Wenger into the mix. The Arsenal manager has a running feud with Mourinho and would enjoy nothing more than inflicting another defeat on Chelsea. Can he do it? Recent history says probably not: the Gunners have failed to beat Chelsea in seven Premier League outings, although they claimed a morale-boosting win in the Charity Shield in the annual season curtain-raiser.Arsenal will climb into second, albeit probably temporarily with victory, while Chelsea could do without chants of “we are staying up” and must start accumulating points soon…TEAM NEWS Forward Willian is out of Chelsea’s Premier League clash. Striker Radamel Falcao, playmaker Oscar (both knee) and Pedro (thigh) could be available, but are doubtful. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is out for around three months following knee surgery, while defender Papy Djilobodji, who is not in the Champions League squad, could be included. Arsenal report no fresh injury worries from the midweek Champions League trip to Dinamo Zagreb. Goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to return against his former club, having been on the bench in Croatia, while defender Hector Bellerin and midfielder Aaron Ramsey are also back in the squad after being rested. Centre back Per Mertesacker could be in contention again after recovering from illness. Midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for an operation on a hairline fracture in his left fibula next week, while forward Danny Welbeck and Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (both knee) are also sidelined MANAGER QUOTESJose Mourinho: “In everything you do in life, you need confidence to be better. In football, when you lose matches, you are affected. You can say you’re not but you are. Normally, when bad things in football happen, the first thing is to find a dramatic story. Somebody punched someone in the dressing-room. The manager doesn’t want to speak with this guy. Diego Costa fought with John Terry and before they start the fight, they brought a translator for them to understand each other because Diego cannot speak English and John cannot speak Spanish. They organise it like the Wild West duels. We are going to fight at this time, bring a translator to help us. Or, Mourinho doesn’t want to give new contracts to Terry and (Branislav) Ivanovic. Mourinho instructs the scouts to find a new right-back urgently.”Arsene Wenger: “Let’s not forget it is the start of the season and only five games have been played. For us it is a big game and we know our position at the end of the season will depend on how well we do in the big games. I do not think too much about where Chelsea stand in the league at the moment. I focus more on us performing well with full power tomorrow.”  MATCH FACTSChelsea are unbeaten against Arsenal in their last seven Barclays Premier League encounters (W4 D3).The Gunners have failed to score in their last four Premier League matches against the Blues and have managed just two goals in their last seven league games against them.Arsene Wenger secured his first win over Jose Mourinho in the Community Shield on his 14th attempt in all competitions (D6 L7). Eden Hazard has scored in the Blues’ last two PL clashes with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, with both goals coming in the first half from the penalty spot.Jose Mourinho has never lost successive league home games as a manager – he lost his last home league game against Crystal Palace (1-2).Theo Walcott has scored 11 goals in his last 11 Premier League starts for Arsenal.The Gunners have won seven and lost none of their last eight Premier League away matches.Chelsea have kept five clean sheets in their last seven Premier League games against Arsenal, including the last four in a row. Arsenal have fired in the most shots on target in the Premier League (39), while Chelsea have allowed their opponents the most in the top flight (38).Only David James (169) has kept more clean sheets than Petr Cech (165) in Premier League history and the Czech has not been beaten in his last three league outings.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
