Tommy Bowe scored Ireland’s two tries at the Stade de FranceBy Bea Asprey, Rugby World WriterIn a nutshell France clawed their way back from an 11-point deficit to draw with Ireland in the rearranged RBS 6 Nations fixture at the Stade de France. The men in green started well, and Tommy Bowe scored two tries in the first half, silencing the French crowd. But Wesley Fofana scored his third Championship try in the 51st minute, and the swing in momentum saw France even the scores thanks to Morgan Parra’s boot. Ireland couldn’t convert a surge of pressure into points in the final quarter of the match, as France’s defence proved to be water tight.Key moment Tommy Bowe intercepted Aurélien Rougerie’s try in the 13th minute and scored Ireland’s first try under the posts. It marked another slow start for France, and and got momentum rolling in the visitors’ favour.Star man Tommy Bowe scored his fourth and fifth tries of this year’s tournament, and showcased why he is regarded as one of the world’s most lethal finishers. He also defended well, but his own performance was no consolation for what the winger saw as a missed opportunity for Ireland. He said: “It’s difficult to score at the Stade de France but to come away with a draw was very disappointing. It feels more like defeat without doubt. We gave ourselves an opportunity to come away with a win and not to score a point in the second half was very disappointing.”Wesley Fofana runs in his third Championship tryRoom for improvementIreland scored more tries than France yet remained winless for the second year in a row. The number of penalties that were awarded to France will trouble Declan Kidney, and he will be looking closely at the team’s indiscipline before Scotland arrive in Dublin next weekend.In quotesFrance head coach Philippe Saint-André: “The players came back from 6-17 down but in the dressing room after the game the state was not that of a draw, but more like France had lost the game. France captain Thierry Dusautoir: “Coming back from 11 points behind is a great achievement but you can’t win when you give away 14 points like that. We knew Ireland would cause us problems around the rucks, and that was our main mistake.”Paul O’Connell battles for the ballIreland coach Declan Kidney: “I’m disappointed for the lads. They put in a huge effort and we believed in ourselves enough to play our own game. There have been seven or eight changes to the team that won the Grand Slam three years ago. We didn’t panic in the second half which was pleasing, but the more you do well, the more disappointing it is when you don’t finish with the result.”Ireland captain Paul O’Connell: “There’s a big feeling of defeat and that there was an opportunity lost. We were disappointed with our second-half performance. It would’ve been nice to come out and score first, but France nearly won the World Cup and we knew they’d come out hard too. It was very frustrating.”StatsIreland scored twice as many tries as France, but also conceded three times as many penalties – 12 to four – and even though Morgan Parra’s boot failed him at times, their indiscipline ultimately cost them the match.France: Clement Poitrenaud (Lionel Beauxis 68); Vincent Clerc, Aurelien Rougerie, Wesley Fofana, Julien Malzieu; François Trinh-Duc, Morgan Parra; Jean-Baptiste Poux (Vincent Debaty 53), Dimitri Szarzewski (William Servat 52), Nicolas Mas, Pascal Pape (Lionel Nallet 61), Yoann Maestri, Thierry Dusautoir (capt), Julien Bonnaire (Louis Picamoles 71), Imanol Harinordoquy.Not used: Julien Dupuy, Maxime Mermoz.Try: Fofana.

The exciting, win a home competition is due to run until next summer.There will be more than one winner, including competitors scooping some big runners-up prizes and the major charity beneficiaries.“We wanted others to benefit from this massive undertaking,” said Malcolm Cox.The Lord’s Taverners, one of the UK’s leading youth sports and disability charities, was lined up for its share which will help young people through sport and recreation.Its president, Chris Tarrant, well known also for “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, has endorsed the Cox family’s effort.“I look forward enormously to working with them and to receiving a very large cheque. I hope the competition is a very big success. I’m sure it will be,” said Chris.Planning the wina3millionhome competition has taken months. In addition to charity partnership, there are some prominent commercial backers including manufacturers and suppliers involved in the original construction of Poacher’s Retreat.Runners-up prizes include a swish bathroom, other top of the range household items and a valuable holiday. Spot prizes are also part of the fun.The win a home competition rules have been carefully drafted to comply with current regulations laid down by the Gaming Commission.Should the eventual winner not actually want the house, they can opt for a cash alternative, £1 million.The Lord’s Taverners aims to help young people, particularly those with special needs. Its belief is that sport and recreation are essential for young people to help build self-esteem, health, education and future social and economic potential.Further information on the charity’s work is available from www.lordstaverners.org.Details on how to win Poacher’s Retreat from www.wina3millionpoundhome.com.Image: President of the Lord’s Taverners, Chris Tarrant with the Cox family, Malcolm, Maxine, Eve and Harry outside Poacher’s Retreat in Warwickshire.

A GoFundMe campaign launched in response to the news that far right groups are fundraising for boats to stop refugees reaching dry land raised more than £50,000 in its first two hours, and has now reached over £63,000.Unite Against Terror was created by activist and journalist Caroline Criado-Perez on Sunday (4th June) following a story in The Observer that reported how members of the anti-Islam and anti-immigrant ‘Identitarian’ movement had raised over £50,000 to enable them to target rescue boats and stop them from helping refugees.On her GoFundMe page, Criado-Perez says:“You wouldn’t try to stop a victim of a terror attack fleeing from danger. Don’t let the far right do this to refugees. Don’t let the far right’s hatred define us as Brits, or as Europeans. Now is not the time to give in to fear and hatred.“I do not pretend to have the answers. I do not pretend to know how to defeat this hateful ideology. But I do know that letting desperate people, who are themselves fleeing terror, drown is categorically not the answer.“Let’s fight back against hatred. Let’s not let terrorism kill off our humanity.”The page raised more than £50,000 in its first two hours, and has a target of £100,000. The current total is just over £63,000, from 427 people, with all finds raised donated to MSF search and rescue teams.https://twitter.com/CCriadoPerez/status/871433094951317504According to the MSF, in 2016, there were 355,361 arrivals by sea to Europe, with 5,096 people reported dead or missing at sea. 43% of the people making the journey by sea are women and children.

When three journalists – Caroline Laurent, Alfred Yaghobzadeh and Yong Tae-young – were kidnapped on 14 March 2006 and held overnight, an armed group close to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and claiming to belong to the “Jericho Brigades” said their abduction was a reprisal for an Israeli army raid on a prison in the West Bank city of Jericho to capture PFLP chief Ahmad Saadat.A few months later, Fox News journalists Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig were kidnapped in Gaza on 14 August 2006. This abduction was claimed by a hitherto unknown group calling itself the Holy Jihad Brigades, which released a video showing the two captives and demanding that the United States release “Muslim prisoners” within 72 hours. Centanni and Wiig were finally set free after two weeks.There is still no official word as to the identity of Johnston’s kidnappers.

However, an unbearable humanitarian crisis triggered by COVID-19 has come to be bigger than the challenge of pandemic, the respective government had to take certain special initiatives in this catch phrase which are key to our economy to get back on its feets”. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice E S Indiresh was hearing a petition challenging the May 22 notification of the State Government to increase working hours of workmen from nine to 10 hours per day and to 60 hours from 48 hours per week in the state. When the bench pointed out that the Karnataka Government has admitted in its submissions that Section 5 was not attracted, the government sought to place reliance of Section 65(2) of the Factories Act. However, the bench pointed out that the notification was not referring to this provision. The bench ultimately adjourned the hearing till June 12, in view of the non-availability of Additional Advocate General. The bench however cautioned that the notification will be stayed, if a fresh decision is not taken by Friday.The court is hearing a petition filed by social and RTI Rights activist Maruthi H, which states that notification issued on May 22 is liable to be quashed as it is illegal, arbitrary and in violation of the Constitutional and statutory safeguards provided to workers. The notification subjects the workers to “forced labour”, the plea stated.Advocate Basawa Kunale and advocate Hemanth Rao are appearing for the petitioners Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
