England edge past Scotland in atrocious conditions to win back Calcutta Cup

first_imgEngland won back the Calcutta Cup and kept their Six Nations title hopes alive with a turgid victory over Scotland in awful weather conditions. Ellis Genge barrelled home for the only try with 10 minutes remaining as driving rain and strong gusts made for a disrupted, error-ridden contest at Murrayfield. The result meant Scotland fell short of a third-straight Calcutta Cup, but England climb level on points with second-placed Wales, four adrift of unbeaten leaders Ireland. Captain Owen Farrell struck a penalty in either half, missing three more attempts from the tee as the weather contributed to a low-scoring affair. Adam Hastings replied twice for Scotland, his 78th-minute kick ensuring Gregor Townsend’s men pick up a second losing bonus point in as many weekends. This was a much-needed victory for England after a bruising loss in Paris. Eddie Jones’ men just about deserved it, but the contest was wretched, a million miles from the epic 38-38 draw of last season. A losing bonus point will come as small comfort to Townsend. The Scots found it ferociously difficult to live with Sam Underhill and Tom Curry at the breakdown and impossible to catch their own ball in the line-out. The key moment was a dreadful mistake by Stuart Hogg, for the second week running. Storm Ciara was due to blow into town in time for the kick-off and, sure enough, an hour or so before it all began, she fetched up with her rain and her gales bringing any notion of an attacking spectacle to its knees. It was brutal out there. Scotland lost five line-outs, and precious momentum, in the opening 40 minutes – some down to crass errors, most of them due to the foul conditions. England, who couldn’t have been playing more conservatively had they all taken the field with Tory party rosettes on their jerseys, lost two. Playing against the wind, they kicked ball after ball, forcing errors from Scotland and taking the lead when the home side were done on the floor. Farrell missed his first penalty earlier, banged over his second and missed his third. This was rugby from another dimension. Had a woolly mammoth, extinct for an age, wandered across the pitch you wouldn’t have missed a beat. Had a try been scored it would have been a moment of genuine shock and awe. Scotland wasted great field position last week in Dublin and they let a few opportunities slip here as well. England were dominant at the breakdown, but error-strewn in so many departments. Everything was understandably, but maddeningly, stop-start. The hosts had a bit more about them in the second half, beginning with a thunder that was sparked by big Rory Sutherland, the renaissance prop who came steaming back into Test rugby in Dublin. Sutherland’s big bust of the English defence was the catalyst for Scotland drawing level. England survived a battering, their defence holding out against Scotland surges. That home pressure didn’t bring them a try – on a day when a try was always going to be good enough to get the win – but they left with three points from Hastings after Underhill was penalised for not releasing. They came again when George Ford and Jonny May fluffed their lines in defence and more heat was piled on through hard carries from Sutherland and Zander Fagerson and their hard-running chums. England held out, perhaps a little luckily. Kyle Sinckler lifted the siege with a rip from Jonny Gray but did it while he was on the floor. The blunder count rose high, towering over the top of the stadium. Scotland lost a seventh, and later an eighth line-out, and Farrell missed a third shot at goal. Onwards we went, ever deeper into mistake-land. The absolute howitzer mess-up came from Hogg, a week after his spectacular spill over the Irish tryline. This was the game. The Scotland captain retreated to deal with a ball under his posts, but made a desperate hash of it. Initially, it looked like he’d spilled it to Farrell, who immediately touched down. The TMO advised that Hogg had carried it over his line but had, indeed, grounded the ball. So, scrum England. And try England. They went through a couple of phases, got it to Genge and then launched Maro Itoje, Curry and Ben Earl in behind him to power over. Farrell converted for a 10-3 lead. Scotland were distraught. Farrell then put over another penalty to stretch the gap to 10, Hastings rescuing a losing bonus soon after. Seventy-eight minutes had been played at that stage. Frankly, it felt like 78 hours.last_img read more

 

‘My lil’ bub came my way 60-years ago today’ – Jim Freeman

first_imgLAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – There is that handful of memories we all have that we hold special to us.  One such memory for me is October 15, 1959; exactly 60 years ago today.It was when my little black haired, black eyed brother came into the world at the La Follette Community Hospital.  I was a cotton top, and when Daniel Leinart Freeman came along, our mom said, “He can’t be my baby!”  But he was with some of those family Cherokee genes showing up.For an almost three-year old boy getting his own baby brother was indeed a big deal.  And it’s still a big deal all these years later.As the late Kim Russell would say, “Happy Birthday, Danch.” (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/15/2019-6AM)Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

 

Referee faces bribery allegations

first_imgKoforidua-based referee Isaac Quaye could face the wrath of the Referees Association of Ghana if it is found out that he took bribe to influence the outcome of a Division One League match which was played on Sunday.Referee Quaye’s bizzare decisions denied the home team Zaytuna United an equalizer and is accused of aiding King Solomon Football Club to run away with a 1-0 win in their zone 3B match.Officials of Zaytuna later found 500 Ghana cedis in his bag after the match and accused him of taking bribe from the visitors.“It’s not normal for a referee to come and officiate a match with such an amount. We asked the assistant referees and they said they knew nothing about it. So reported the case to the match commissioner,” Chairman of Zaytuna Abu Lamptey told Ghanasoccernet.com“His performance was bad on the day and something must be done about. We began suspecting him after he disallowed and knowing what he has done, he ran away after the match.“We have reported the case to the football authorities and we hope they will act swiftly,” he added. “We didn’t attack or abuse him and we hope this will set an example because he was a disgrace to refereeing.”Zaytuna turned in the equalizer when the ball was clearly off the line but referee adjudged the clearance by King Solomon to be legitimate.The Class One referee absconded after the final whistle to prevent any altercations with the home fans.He managed to escape by swapping his uniform with somebody who is being described as a brother.Source: Ghanasoccernetlast_img read more

Edwards: TG can go all the way

first_img “Based on what I have seen so far in terms of the turnout, the attitude is getting better, I believe that this team can go all the way,” he said. Tivoli have not won the Premier League title since 2010. However, they have managed to secure back-to-back KSAFA Jackie Bell Knockout titles over the past two seasons. “The players here know how to win, but they just need to have the right attitude and to be consistent, and once they do this, then we are good enough to go all the way,” Edwards pointed out. Better attitude Following the acquisition of the number of players in the off season, Tivoli Gardens FC’s coach, Omar Edwards, says that they have positioned themselves to make a very serious push for the Red Stripe Premier League title this season. The west Kingston-based Tivoli who were knocked out at the quarterfinal stage of the 2017-18 competition by Cavalier, have acquired the services of striker Newton Sterling from Arnett Gardens, Michael Spence (Cavalier), Kemar Seivwright and Raymond Williamson (Molynes United), Maurice Wilson (Rae Town) and Saquille Jones of Portsmouth. Edwards, who will be entering his third season with the club, told The Gleaner that the expectations were very high among the players and they are looking forward, with confidence, to their opening match against Montego Bay United on September 16. “The expectation is always to win the Premier League, but we know that it is a difficult challenge. We have brought in some new players to join the players that we have from previous years, and so it is a mix of youth and experience that we believe will give us a good blend going into the new season,” said Edwards.last_img read more

 

Lampard reiterates commitment to New York City FC

first_imgFrank Lampard has sought to draw a line under the controversy regarding his extended stay at Manchester City and insisted he will join New York City FC in the summer.There has been confusion over the precise nature of Lampard’s contract status in relation to both clubs since it was announced on New Year’s Eve that he would remain with the Premier League champions until the end of the season. That announcement has delayed his debut with sister club New York until midway through their first MLS campaign, to the anger of many fans in the United States.On Thursday, the Premier League announced that, after reviewing Lampard’s status, it was satisfied his contract was solely owned by Manchester City with no agreement in place between the two clubs – which sparked fresh speculation he might never play in MLS.But Lampard issued a statement via his representatives on Friday which said he does have an agreement in place with New York and will move there in the summer.“I want to make it completely clear about my situation as I have read a lot of lies and nonsense over the last few days,” the statement, released via Steve Kutner Management, said.“When released from Chelsea last year at the end of my contract I signed a commitment to play for NYCFC for two years starting January 1, 2015. I was then offered the chance to train and be part of the Man City squad in the interim to keep myself in the best shape going into New York.“This period has since been extended by Man City and I will now start playing for NYCFC at the end of this current Premier League season.“There has always been a constant dialogue between all parties in this time to find the best solution for everyone. I can say that I am very excited about arriving in New York and giving everything to the team to make us a success in the MLS as soon as possible.“Thanks everyone for your ongoing support and I wish everyone a healthy and happy 2015!” 1 Frank Lampard last_img read more
