Rocky Dan ElsomAge 28 (14 February 1983)Birthplace MelbournePosition Blindside flankerWeight 17st 8lbHeight 6ft 6inFranchise BrumbiesAustralia caps 64Australia points 60 (12 tries)Rocky ElsomHe’s a man who hates losing and leads by example, so Rocky Elsom will do all he can to make the Wallabies world champions for a third time. By Katie FieldAs the Elsoms welcomed their baby boy into the world on Valentine’s Day in 1983, they might have chosen a suitably romantic name for him – Romeo, perhaps. Instead, they opted for Rocky.I’ve no idea if they were fans of the iconic boxing films, or whether they had an altogether different reason for their choice. However, it turned out to be spot on, as their bouncing baby became one of Australian rugby’s great warriors. Fast-forward 26 years and Elsom became Wallabies captain. Robbie Deans chose him to lead the squad in the 2009 November Internationals because he is a charismatic battler who inspires people to follow his example.“Watch him play,” said Deans. “He loves playing the game. He likes to win. He embraces that challenge. People gravitate to him and follow blokes like that. His location on the field (at blindside) we believe will be beneficial in terms of his ability to marshall the troops, but also communicate with referees. Look at the way he plays. He initiates. He’s smart. He’s got the ability to think beyond the moment.”For his part, Elsom was thrilled. “I’m ecstatic. It’s like when you get your first jersey. You’re over the moon to have that opportunity. Responsibility also goes with that. Some of the best things you can do as a captain is just your actions. It’s a young group. Keeping everyone’s focus on the job is important. You create an environment of really high standards and guys get used to doing the right thing and everyone is going to prosper.”Elsom has already achieved much in his career – 60-plus Test caps and the Heineken Cup for starters – but now he faces the challenge of leading his nation into a World Cup on the soil of their bitterest rivals, New Zealand. Having seen the team underachieve in 2007 and lose in the 2003 final, Australian fans are desperate for World Cup success and Elsom will be a key figure if their wishes are to come true.A pupil of one of Australia’s major rugby schools, Nudgee College in Brisbane, Elsom was earmarked for stardom from an early age as he played for Australia U16 and Schoolboys. In his late teens he switched to rugby league, playing for the Bulldogs in Australia’s NRL in 2001-02, but he was soon back in union and added Australia U21 to his honours.Signed by the Waratahs, the flanker became one of their most consistent performers in Super Rugby and on 11 June 2005 he was rewarded with his first Australia cap, playing blindside in the 74-7 win over Samoa and scoring a try. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – MAY 19: Wallabies captain Rocky Elsom poses for a portrait during an Australian Wallabies photocall at Sydney City Lexus on May 19, 2010 in Sydney, Australia. (Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images) By RWC 2007 he was an established member of the team and while the tournament didn’t go to plan, England knocking the Wallabies out in the quarter-finals, Elsom’s career continued on an upward spiral. He took the Waratahs to the 2008 Super Rugby final and then flew north to Dublin where he starred for Leinster as they won the 2009 Heineken Cup. Brian O’Driscoll said: “I’d say he’s the best player I’ve ever played with and I’ve played with many good players.”Former England hooker Brian Moore wrote in his Daily Telegraph column: “Rarely is it the case that a single forward can indisputably be said to have been the decisive factor between two teams; in the case of Elsom, this can’t be seriously gainsaid about any of the knockout stages of this tournament.”Despite his success in Europe, Elsom’s desire to return to the Test arena prompted him to return home in June 2009. “Playing for the Wallabies is my No 1 priority,” he said. Elsom has since been at the heart of all that is good about Australia, adding mongrel to the pack and leading a bunch of talented youngsters through the minefield of their introductions to Test rugby.A hamstring injury has limited Elsom’s game time in 2011, but while his body has been a concern, his mindset is never a problem. As Wayne Smith, of The Australian, writes: “No player enjoys losing but some cope with it better than others. Elsom isn’t one of them. He hates losing… but, unlike some players who only rage against defeat after the event, Elsom rages at it while it’s still merely an annoying possibility, while there is still time to do something about it. And at that point he applies his head as well as his heart.”This article appeared in Part 1 of our Rugby World Cup Supplement.To get a copy of the supplement contact [email protected] Or click here if you prefer a digital version of the magazine.And if you’d like 50% off a subscription to Rugby World Magazine click here

Jeff Craighead cycles in the Bike MS City to Shore Ride every year in support of his wife, Pam, who has multiple sclerosis. By Donald WittkowskiInspired by his wife Pam’s 26-year battle with multiple sclerosis, Jeff Craighead participates in the Bike MS City to Shore Ride every year to help raise money in the fight against an incurable disease that often disrupts the central nervous system.When the 75-mile Bike MS trek from Cherry Hill to Ocean City unfolds during the weekend of Sept. 21-22, Craighead will have plenty of company.As many as 6,000 to 7,000 cyclists are expected to ride in this year’s event, which serves as the second-largest fundraiser in the country for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Around $5 million is expected to be raised this year.Jeff and Pam Craighead, who are volunteers with the Greater Delaware Valley chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, appeared in Ocean City on Thursday night during a City Council meeting to promote Bike MS, now in its 39th year.The number of people suffering from the disease is staggering, according to statistics cited by the Craigheads. Globally, an estimated 2.3 million people have the disease, including one million in the United States. About 150,000 of them reside in the tri-state area. There is no cure for MS.Pam Craighead, 65, was diagnosed with MS in 1993. Thanks to the medication she takes, she continues to do well, although she does have weakness in her right leg that worsens with fatigue, the Craigheads said.Her medication is made possible by research funded by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Pam said the Bike MS event is a crucial part of efforts to raise money nationwide for other MS sufferers who need help.“Research is happening and the money that is raised is making a difference,” she told reporters in an interview after the Council meeting.This year’s target is 6,000 to 7,000 cyclists for the Bike MS City to Shore Ride ending in Ocean City on Sept. 21-22.In remarks to the Council members, the Craigheads stressed that Ocean City is a major reason for the success of the event. The waves of bikers are attracted by the allure of the Jersey Shore, they said.“The fact that we have Ocean City as a final destination is not insignificant for our success,” Jeff Craighead said. “That is a draw for this ride.”The Craigheads, who live in Philadelphia, thanked Council for Ocean City’s support of Bike MS over the years. Ocean City police officers are stationed along the entry route into town to protect the cyclists and direct traffic.Jeff Craighead, 63, inspired by his wife, has been riding in the event for 26 years. The couple’s son, Jack, has participated in Bike MS for 25 years.Craighead’s fundraising team, the Roxborough Riders, will mark its 26th year in Bike MS this September. Craighead raised $8,000 in 2018 and his son added another $1,000 for MS. In a letter to potential donors, Craighead said he has set a fundraising goal of $7,500 for this year.Bike MS also helps to raise awareness of MS. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society and its advocates have been pushing for laws and programs nationwide to support MS research, care and education.“Last year, MS activists helped pass 22 bills in state legislatures across the country, leading to increased access to quality care, disability rights, long-term care support and services, and more,” Craighead told donors in his letter seeking their support.In remarks to Council, the Craigheads thank Ocean City for its support of the Bike MS Ride over the years.
MAYVILLE — While legally and ethically limited as to what he can say, Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick Swanson expressed disappointment with a decision to dismiss a murder indictment returned against a 25-year-old Jamestown man accused of murder.On Thursday, Judge David Foley dismissed a grand jury indictment for one count of second-degree murder and two counts of second-degree attempted murder returned against Montanez.Foley cited errors in the presentation to the grand jury. Swanson says the law supports his arguments.“I am extremely limited with what I can say regarding this decision. Given that it is a pending matter I cannot describe the facts,” Swanson said in a statement. “What I can say, is that I could not disagree more with the court’s decision. We firmly believe we followed the penal law. Given my ethical limitations, I cannot outline the facts or the law that firmly support my position. I am deeply disappointed we find ourselves in this position. We plan to move forward as expeditiously as possible,” furthered Swanson.Montanez’s attorney, Chautauqua County Public Defender Ned Barone, told WNYNewsNow that his office argued that Swanson failed to inform the grand jury of the justifiable option, i.e.: self-defense.“It really doesn’t matter whether or not there was self-defense, but more importantly, it was an issue that had to have been presented to the grand jury and wasn’t,” explained Barone. “We argued that because it was an exculpatory defense, meaning that charges could be dismissed if a juror believed it was self-defense, and was not presented as need be by the district attorney during grand jury.”Barone says he and his staff submitted the motion to dismiss three weeks ago.His client is currently in Chautauqua County Jail, but Barone says he will be asking the court to consider releasing him based on the indictment dismissal.“What happens after today is really up to the District Attorney,” said Barone. “Which way they decide to follow-up on this.”Montanez was previously charged with first-degree manslaughter by the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, who say Montanez allegedly shot and killed Justin M. Gibbons, 29, of Mayville, following a dispute in an alleyway near 114 W. Main St. in Sherman just after 1:30 a.m., Oct. 6.Gibbons was shot multiple times while he was attempting to flee the area in a vehicle, investigators said.He was transported to Westfield Memorial Hospital by the Sherman Volunteer Fire Department Ambulance where he was later pronounced dead.D.A. Swanson has 30 days to bring the case back to grand jury.WNYNewsNow’s Rory Pollaro and Justin Gould contributed to this report.
