Jordan Larmour gets the scoreboard ticking at the Aviva Stadium! #GuinnessSixNations #IREvWAL pic.twitter.com/6YZYbDte8G— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 8, 2020Ireland were building patiently in the Wales 22 with a series of pick-and-goes following a lineout, then Conor Murray fired a long pass to Larmour, who used his footwork to find a way through several defenders in red.Nick Tompkins tried to close down Larmour but as the full-back stepped back inside Tompkins went high with his tackle attempt and the Ireland player was able to break through. Larmour then used his momentum to weave past Josh Adams and Leigh Halfpenny, too, and ground the ball over the line.It was an excellent finish – and one the Welsh defence will not enjoy watching again.Wales showed decent skills of their own in scoring their first try. Dan Biggar passed to Alun Wyn Jones, who then popped an accurate offload out of the tackle to his fly-half. Biggar then released Tomos Williams into space and the scrum-half broke clear to score.The TMO was happy that neither pass was forward and Biggar converted to give Wales a two-point lead after half an hour. Here is the Williams try… The March issue of Rugby World magazine – a Six Nations special – is on sale now. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Jordan Larmour’s brilliant footwork to score against WalesJordan Larmour showcased his brilliant footwork to score the opening try in Ireland’s 24-14 bonus-point win over Wales at the Aviva Stadium in the second round of the Six Nations.It was a typically physical encounter between these two sides, with CJ Stander again in impressive form with his turnovers at the breakdown to win the Man of the Match award for the second week in a row.Yet alongside the traditional pick-and-goes, we also saw more creativity in attack from both teams – and Larmour’s willingness to run the ball and use his sidestepping skills typifies this.The Ireland full-back talks in the latest issue of Rugby World magazine about how he’s looking to become more of a ball player and act as a first receiver. It’s something he has been working on with Leinster coach Stuart Lancaster – and it paid dividends midway through the first half in Dublin… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Opening act: Jordan Larmour beats several Welsh defenders to score the first try (Getty Images) Is there anything Alun Wyn Jones can’t do? #GuinnessSixNations #IREvWAL pic.twitter.com/JEDDnPzzC8 Ireland full-back scores opening try in bonus-point victory in round two of Six Nations — Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 8, 2020It was a Welsh mistake that led to the game’s third try just a few minutes later, though. In fact, Wales made several uncharacteristic errors in this match and it cost them just as much as their inability to finish opportunities.Back to the game’s third try. Williams knocked on close to the Welsh line after captain Jones seemed to catch him off-guard with a pass from a lineout.Ireland got penalty advantage from the ensuing scrum, Bundee Aki and James Ryan made ground, and then Tadhg Furlong powered over – with a little help from Rob Herring and CJ Stander.Johnny Sexton’s conversion meant the match was finely poised at 12-7 at half-time.Another show of Irish power shortly after the break resulted in their third try. They kicked for a five-metre lineout from a penalty and their driving maul surged over the line, with Josh van der Flier awarded the try.Hadleigh Parkes had a chance to reduce the deficit for Wales as he hit a hard line and stretched for the line, but he lost control as he tried to touch it down in the 56th minute.Wales had other chances in the Irish 22 around that time but couldn’t convert them whereas the hosts were more clinical.Andrew Conway scored the bonus-point try in the 75th minute after a concerted spell of pressure deep in the Welsh half. From a scrum they drew in the Welsh defence and Conway was released into space out wide – one of several times Ireland were able to catch Wales short of numbers in those channels – to run into the corner.Justin Tipuric scored a consolation try from a driving maul in the final minute but it was not enough to give Wales even a losing bonus point.In contrast, Ireland will travel to Twickenham in a fortnight with two wins from two – and noticeable improvements from their win over Scotland to this victory.

April 27, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News ChinaAsia – Pacific RSF_en News ChinaAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders condemns the detention of two young Tibetan writers who are studying in Lanzhou, in the northwestern province of Gansu. Identified as Tashi Rabten (pen-name Therang) and Druklo (pen-name Shokjang), they were arrested on 4 April, apparently because of what they have written about the situation in Tibet.“We fear that these two young Tibetan writers will be mistreated during their first few weeks in detention,” Reporters Without Borders. “We urge the authorities in Gansu province to provide information about what is happening to them. And if their arrests are linked to their writing, we call for their release.”Tashi Rabten and Druklo were arrested when 16 armed policemen raided their hostel at the Northwest National Minorities University, where they are students. The police searched their rooms, confiscating books in Tibetan, their mobile phones, their laptops and their course material.Tashi Rabten was the editor of a book in Tibetan called Trakyig (Blood Letter) about the March 2008 unrest in Tibet. Published in January 2009, its sale was stopped by the Chinese authorities because of its “suspicious” political content, and the security forces seized copies already distributed. Thereafter they were kept under surveillance and Tashi Rabten was briefly arrested in July 2009.“If the government continues to violate our freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, freedom of thought and our private lives, we are surely going to protest,” a student representative at the university told a Tibetan journalist based abroad.

Previous articleO’Callaghan injury forces Munster man out of Italy gameNext articleYoung mother tried to conceal and pass cannabis to prison inmate admin Twitter RECALLED to court following the submissions of a probation report, Limerickman Daniel Corbett, aged 21, charged with the sale and supply of over €2,500 worth of cannabis herb, has been placed under the care and supervision of the Probation Services for a nine month period, in what Judge Tom O’Donnell described as a “very serious and disturbing matter”. The district court judge praised the bravery of Corbett’s family in dealing with the level of intimidation which they suffered.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Details had been heard at the hearing last November, and recalled at the recent sitting, of how a local family was terrorised out of their home and forced to repay a drug debt following threats and intimidation to a member from one of Limerick’s deadliest criminal gangs. Evidence had been given of the text message threats, midnight phone calls and an assault that Corbett’s family endured after he had ran up an unpaid drug debt.Previously stunned to silence during the case when he was told of the background, Judge O’Donnell had heard detailed evidence relating to Corbett and how he developed a habit for using cannabis herb.The evaluation report furnished by the Probation Services to the court noted how the accused “engaged well” with them and that “despite his difficulties in the past, was straightening out matters”.Previously, the court was told that Corbett of McDonnagh Avenue, Janesboro, was unable to pay a drug debt and in fear for his safety, was forced into selling 20gm bags of cannabis herb for €300 for the criminal outfit.He had appeared in court having been stopped by gardai on Mallow St on March 4, 2009, and when the vehicle was searched, €2,688 worth of the drug was found stashed in the air vent under the bonnet of the car.It was at this time, the court heard, that the Corbett family found themselves at the mercy of the gang who demanded a €6,000 payment in lieu of the drugs seized.Evidence had been given by the defence that it was indeed a “significant amount of drugs” to be found with and how a recreational habit resulted in Corbett getting caught with debts to a “serious criminal gang”.Corbett was forced into distribution of the drugs for the gang in order to repay the debt. With it, this brought “intimidation and a serious amount of duress upon the family”.The court had been told that in an attempt to quash the threat and abuse, a credit union loan had to be secured to make the payment.Judge O’Donnell heard how the “lives of the family were made a misery,” and that €6,000 had to be paid to the gang or, “they would be minus a child”.The Corbett family had to move home following the threats and intimidation.The court previously heard that the family were still enduring to repay the loan, but that the intimidation was “not as bad now that the debt was paid”.John Herbert, solicitor, told the recent sitting of the District Court that it was “clear the report drew some positive conclusions and that Mr Corbett was abstaining from drug use”.Judge O’Donnell had already marked the facts of the case proven and in this instance, would “go along with the recommendations of the report”.Noting the seriousness of the case, he said he did not think he had “heard anything more appalling in the courtroom for sometime”, and noted that the level of intimidation suffered by the family was “extremely disturbing” and amounted to an “appalling set of circumstances”, but credited the “bravery” of the family.After reading the report, judge O’Donnell released Daniel Corbett on his own bond of €100, but due to the seriousness of the case, liberty was given for the prosecution or the probation services to re-enter the case pending the outcome of the nine month probationary period.

Spread The Vote(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — Javier Munoz is on a mission.The former star of hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” is trying to get people the identification cards they need to vote this November.As the U.S. fast approaches the November midterm elections, Munoz is now the face of a 60-second video in English and Spanish created by an organization called Spread the Vote, which helps people get the photo ID required to vote in certain states.“It is a huge opportunity for the Latinx community, to have their voices heard, especially in response to hurricane Maria and how that affected each and every life on that island,” Munoz told ABC News.Nearly 200,000 Puerto Ricans left after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island in Sept. 2017, the majority of them moving to Florida.Florida is one of seven states that requires all voters showing up to the polls to have a photo ID card to vote.“The IDs we are getting for people go way past the ballot,” Spread the Vote’s Florida State Director Gina Miles told ABC News. “They need IDs to survive. They need an ID to apply for a job, to apply for housing, for medical care, to enter food banks.”Munoz still has family in Ponce and Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, and some of his family members were among the hundreds of thousands that relocated to Florida. He vividly remembers Hurricane Maria and its aftermath.“It was so terrifying to go so long without hearing from them that still in just saying the names of where they live on the island of Puerto Rico, evokes an emotional response in me,” Munoz said.Damaris Torres is one person who will be receiving a Florida driver’s license soon, thanks to help from Spread the Vote.Torres, originally from Guayanilla, Puerto Rico, left the island on Nov. 15 with her two daughters, one of whom was pregnant, as well as her 3-year-old granddaughter. They lived in a hotel in Orlando before the family was able to transfer their Section 8 housing status from the island to the mainland.“We decided to come because I am diabetic and it was becoming very difficult with the insulin and all the medicine,” Torres said in Spanish.Torres said that voting in November’s election is important because it ensures the well-being of her daughters and grandchildren.“To get off the plane and to see how the island is doing was very depressing” Torres said about visiting the island after the hurricane, adding that thinking of her son who still lives in their old home on the south part of the island with limited power is what causes her the most pain.Spread The Vote pays for and assists people who need to get updated birth certificates, notarized letters and other documents to and from Puerto Rico to ultimately get a driver’s license. The average cost to get a Florida driver’s license for someone from Puerto Rico is $34.“You have all these people that were forced out of their homes because of a storm,” said Kat Calvin, a lawyer turned political organizer who founded Spread the Vote. “[T]hey now have the opportunity to elect someone who will actually do something and will actually care.”The organization also helps people who are not from Puerto Rico but need voter identification cards.“Ninety percent of the people that we help, the very first thing they say is ‘I can get a job now,’” said Calvin, adding that 77 percent of the people who get an identification card through the organization are first-time voters.For his part, Munoz looks to the November election as a moment of reckoning for people displaced by Maria.“While a person is rebuilding their life post-Hurricane Maria, and having to relocate, who gets elected will directly affect what they have as a resource going forward as they rebuild their lives.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
