Canadian Conor Trainor’s sublime foot control at the Glasgow Sevens

first_imgSunday May 4, 2014 Canadian Conor Trainor’s sublime foot control at the Glasgow Sevens With some of the most gifted players in world rugby taking part, the World Sevens Series is a platform to showcase some great skills. Speed and stepping are often at the forefront, but as seen here, footballing ability goes a long way too.Against France on Day One of the Glasgow Sevens, Trainer was on the end of a drifting pass that was out just a bit too far in front of him. Rather that reach down and possibly risk knocking it on, he did what any incredibly talented player would do – casually controlled and flicked it up with his foot.He then outran the defence, and glided inside one of France’s best players, Terry Bouhraoua.The last time we saw something similar to this in the Sevens was when Wales’ Tom Grabham did pretty much the exact same thing against Argentina in 2012, also in Glasgow funnily enough.On the Test scene Simon Zebo, as mentioned in this clip, did it in the Six Nations with a backheel against two years ago, but it could probably be argued that both Grabham and Trainer’s moments were more impressive and required more control. Football gurus can debate that though.In last year’s Six Nations Vincent Clerc volleyed a crosskick in-field to nearly set up a try against Scotland, and back in 2009 Lionel Beauxis produced one of the most sublime bits of skill seen on a rugby field, as he volleyed and controlled the ball with ease against Bath.Dimitri Yachvili has also backheeled a pass to set up a try before, and last year Munster’s Rohan O’Mahony flicked the ball up to James Coughlan to set up a try. There was all sorts of debate about whether that was intentional or not, so you can take a look and add your two cents on that post.The theme with all of these efforts is that while size, physicality and fitness as so key to rugby these days, there’s still place and appreciation for the showman, and those with incredible skill.Enjoy Trainer’s effort below, and the other moments mentioned in the Related Posts below thatADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it , Sevens Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Midweek Madness – Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

first_imgWednesday Jun 18, 2014 Midweek Madness – Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline A few months back we watched on in horror as Japan made an awful mess of a try at the Hong Kong Sevens. Against the USA at the weekend they did it again, this time with winger Kenki Fukuoka, who lost the ball in an attempt to get between the posts.While we joke about things like this, Eddie Jones coached Japan are actually on an incredible run of form and they kept that up with a 37-29 victory over the USA Eagles in the Pacific Nations Cup. Tries were scored by Ryu Koliniasi Holani (two), Fumiaki Tanaka and Akithito Yamada, while fullback Ayumu Goromaru converted all four and kicked three penalties for a 17 point haul. Cam Dolan crossed for the USA while a Blaine Scully hat-trick wasn’t enough to beat the Brave Blossoms.This year the Pacific Nations cup is split into two conferences for the first time ever, with Pool A featuring Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, while Pool B comprises of Japan, Canada and the United States.In a moment reminiscent of George Gregan on Jeff Wilson, Fukuaka crossed for a try in the 15th minute but took too long to get the ball down as he attempted to get it beneath the posts, and had it slapped out of his hands as USA center Folau Niau made the tackle.Despite the error early in the game, Japan went on to achieve their ninth straight win.View USA vs Japan match highlightsOfficial highlights from the USA vs Japan in Carson, CaliforniaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Hong Kong: two journalists face heavy jail term for documenting the occupation of the Legislative Council building

first_img June 10, 2021 Find out more News News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the Hong Kong Secretary for Justice to drop the absurd rioting charges against the two reporters who documented the occupation of the Legislative Council building. Organisation RSF_en Receive email alerts News Help by sharing this information ChinaHong KongAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Judicial harassment On June 10th, almost a year after the brief occupation of the Legislative Council building (LegCo) during a pro-democracy protest in Hong Kong, two journalists at the scene have been slammed with new charges of rioting which in the law carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence, but is in this case is limited to seven years due to the fact it is judged by the District Court in Hong Kong.Ma Kai-chung, a reporter from the online media Passion Times and Wong Ka-ho, the deputy chief-editor of the City University of Hong Kong’s student journal, will both be tried in August alongside 10 protestors and were initially only charged with “illegally entering and remaining in the Legislative Council chamber”, an offense which carries a maximum 3-month prison sentence. “These two journalists were only performing their professional duty by documenting the occupation of the Legislative Council building and should never be indicted, and especially not  charged with a crime that carries a 10-year jail term”, says Cédric Alviani, Reporters Without Borders’ (RSF) East Asia bureau head, who calls on the Hong Kong Secretary for Justice to “immediately drop the absurd rioting charge.”On the night of July 1st 2019, a date that marked the 22nd anniversary of the former British colony’s handover to China, a small group of protesters stormed the Legislative Council building, whilst over half a million Hong Kong residents took to the streets protesting against a now withdrawn bill that would have allowed extradition to the mainland.According to the Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA), Hong Kong’s press freedom dropped to a record low in 2019, largely as a result of police violence. RSF has raised the issue of violence against journalists in a letter last July addressed to Carrie Lam, head of the Hong Kong executive, but received only a canned response.The Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong has fallen from 18th place in 2002 to 80th place in this year’s RSF Press Freedom Index. The People’s Republic of China stagnates at the bottom of the index in 177th place out of a total of 180 countries.

He alleged that, infuriated with said report, the MLA  telephoned the petitioner and threatened him with dire consequences, abused him and his parents using filthy language and in the name of his caste in an uncivilized manner and directed him to appear before him. This made him file a complaint based on which a crime was registered against the MLA on 08.12.2020 under Sections 448, 504, 506 read with Section 109 IPC and Section 3(2) (va) of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. The Journalist, in his writ petition, alleged that the Police have not arrested the accused and there is no progress made in the crime reported.  Referring to various judgments in this regard, the court observed that on mere registration of crime, it is not necessary that person should be arrested. Justice P. Naveen Rao said:Freedom of expression is core to democratic values and is imbedded in our rich culture. Free and fair journalism is epitome of this expression. Fearless journalism is as vital to democracy as any other organ of the society. There are no two opinions on need to ensure and preserve these values. However, having regard to the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court and having regard to the fact that the writ petition was instituted within four days of reporting crime, it cannot be said that police have not acted diligently in investigating into the crime and in not arresting the fifth respondent. The court added that it would be premature, at this stage, to hold the action of  police in not arresting the accused as amounting to abuse or misuse of power or dereliction of their solemn duty.  The court, granted liberty to him to make appropriate application to the Deputy Superintendent of Police enlisting the alleged threat perception of the petitioner to his person, family and property and requesting to provide protection to him. If such application is made, the 4th respondent is directed to consider the same and if satisfied with threat perception, to provide protection sought by the petitioner, the bench said.Case: Guguloth Santosh Naik vs. State of TelenganaCoram: Justice P.
