TAGS: Bath RugbySaracens LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Bath travel to Watford’s Vicarage Road on Sunday aiming for a much-needed win to keep their hopes of making the Aviva Premiership play-offs alive. After a heavy defeat to table-toppers Leicester last week at The Rec, they will also be looking to re-build their confidence by overcoming Saracens, who are currently sitting in second place just behind the Tigers.Defence and skills coach Brad Davis has had time to reflect on last weekend’s defeat, and says only a victory on Sunday will be acceptable.“We played some great bits of rugby last weekend, especially in the first 40 minutes – we made numerous line-breaks and with better finishing we could’ve been two or three tries to the good,” says Davis. “It’s taught us a lesson in taking opportunities.“We have a chance to put things right on Sunday and it’s turning into a must win game for us as we look to push into the top four. We have a couple of games in hand but they will only count if we win them. When the rearranged fixtures come, we have to take those opportunities.“At the same time we are under no illusions that the most important game in our season is coming up on Sunday. We know what Saracens provide – a stern physical test, and a strong set piece. They don’t give too much away so we are going to have to be at our best to make sure we stay on top of them and come away with the points.”Meanwhile the hosts are without scrum-half Neil de Kock and back-rower Justin Melck, who make way for Richard Wigglesworth and Kelly Brown. Jacques Burger also makes his return from a knee injury on the bench, and Kevin Barrett and Mouritz Botha are both included in the 23.Bath last_img read more

Top 14: Losing away from home accepted

AFP PHOTO / JEFF PACHOUD (Photo credit should read JEFF PACHOUD/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Blasting big boys: Grenoble beat Toulouse at the weekend, meaning Toulouse haven’t won away at all this seasonBy Gavin MortimerHere’s a stat to chew on. Five clubs in the Top 14 this season have failed to score points in a match, the clubs in question being Bayonne (55-0 vs Clermont); Toulouse (25-0 vs Montpellier); Castres (34-0 vs Brive); Biarritz (39-0 vs Castres) and Toulon (23-0 vs Stade Francais).In contrast, no club in the Rabo 12 has finished pointless this season and only one – Newcastle – has failed to trouble the scorers in the Aviva Premiership.The common thread running through all five defeats is they were on the road, but what’s most extraordinary is that three of the teams humiliated away from home are currently in the top six of the Top 14 – Toulon, Castres and Toulouse.Beating Bayonne: Castres’ Ibrahim Diarra celebrates a tryCan you imagine Saracens or Leinster, Munster or Leicester failing to register a point in a league match? It’s unthinkable. Yet a team as illustrious as Toulouse, a record four-time winner of the Heineken Cup, didn’t manage to slot so much as a penalty in Montpellier, while on Saturday an abject Toulon side slumped to a 23-0 defeat to Stade Francais in Paris. In fairness to the reigning European champions they should have mustered six points but Frederic Michalak missed a couple of sitters on a miserable day for the fly-half. As Bernard Laporte said to reporters: “If I told you that Fred had had a good match, I’d be lying.”Still, at least Toulon have won once on their travels in the French championship this season, a feat that has so far eluded Toulouse, Oyonnax, Brive and Bayonne. (After nine rounds of the Aviva Premiership, only Worcester have yet to pick up a win on the road.) It says something about Toulouse’s mindset that nearly four months into the season they haven’t managed to win away but they are unbeaten at home – as are Castres, Toulon, Clermont, Stade Francais and Grenoble.This mindset is unique to France, and it’s something I discussed with Philippe Saint-Andre a few years ago when he was coaching Sale Sharks. Having begun his coaching career at Gloucester in 1998, Saint-Andre had returned to England after a short spell in charge of Bourgoin, so he was well-placed to comment on the contrasting approach. “Even in the professional era there is still a ‘win at home, lose away’ mentality in French rugby,” explained Saint-Andre of his time in Bourgoin. “When I was there about 60 per cent of the squad came from Bourgoin. At home the players were playing in front of their friends and family. They knew most of the spectators and knew they were playing for the honour of Bourgoin. It was as if they were ready to die for the town.”Away day blues: Brive lost to Oyonnax in round nineThe French call this l’esprit de clocher (literally, ‘the spirit of the bell tower’), meaning that it is the duty of anyone born within the sound of their town’s church bells to uphold its glory. As the former England wing Dan Luger said a few years ago, not long after he’d arrived at Perpignan: “One of the first things that struck me [was] the importance that they attach to defending your ground…a home defeat soon becomes a local tragedy. The corollary is that losing away is accepted too easily.”The fact that many clubs in the Top 14 are now full of foreigners is irrelevant. Towns such as Toulon, Castres and Clermont are tight-knit communities where the fortunes of the rugby club dominate conversations in the cafes and bistros. Players, be they French or foreign, live among the locals and they can’t pop down to the shops without running into a wide-eyed supporter. Toulon’s players will soon be forgiven for their abject display in Paris on Saturday, as they were last season when they were thrashed 41-0 away at Bordeaux. And a defeat away in Exeter in the Heineken Cup wouldn’t be the end of the world. But were they to lose at home to Montpellier on December 21, in the Mediterranean local derby…The Toulon faithful might well escort the squad to the top of the bell tower and invite them to take a jump.last_img read more

Hotshot: Northampton and England U20 fly-half James Grayson

first_imgRW VERDICT: A key member of England’s U20 squad, Grayson has benefited from more first-team game time at Northampton. His brothers are also in Saints’ Elite Player Development Group, so we could see all three lining up in the backs in a few years.This article originally appearing in the May 2018 edition of Rugby World magazine. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Tee time: James Grayson kicks a penalty for Northampton (Getty Images) I’ve always been a fly-half but sometimes my schoolmaster moved me to scrum-half to make me realise what went into getting me the ball. It helped my understanding.When did you first link up with Northampton? At 13. I joined the junior academy, then I got a senior academy contract two years ago. I love it here. It has been a frustrating year for the club, but I got a lot of opportunities earlier in the season and that integration into the senior squad has been really good.Are you looking forward to working with Chris Boyd? He’s worked with incredible talents. I’ll be picking his brain about Beauden Barrett and I’m excited to see what he brings.What’s your rugby highlight? My first Premiership start at Sale. It was a horrific night – wind, rain and sleet – but the pride of wearing the No 10 shirt for Northampton Saints was huge for me. Winning the Five Nations in 2016 with the U18s was awesome too.What do you do away from rugby? I’m doing work experience with my sponsors at the club, OCM Wealth Management, and I’ll go on to do some exams with them. From having a famous father to his love of cricket, get to know up-and-coming fly-half James Graysoncenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Northampton and England U20 fly-half James Grayson Date of birth 26 June 1998 Born Northampton Club Northampton Country England Position Fly-halfWhen did you first play? I always played in the back garden, but I was four when I went to my local club, Old Northamptonians, with my granddad. My dad (ex-England fly-half Paul Grayson) was at the World Cup and my mum also had my newly-born twin brothers to look after, so it was a good way to get me off my mum’s hands. I played for the club from four to 17.Did you get to watch your dad play? I remember him playing the Barbarians for England vividly and playing against Jonny Wilkinson and Newcastle; I ran out with my dad as a mascot and Northampton won.Is he good for advice? We always speak about games and when we talk rugby it’s not father and son, it’s more like he’s my coach. He’s really detailed and will pick out weaknesses as well as good things.Did you play any other sports growing up? Cricket – I still try to play the odd game when I can. Rugby was always the goal for me, but I’d recommend to any young sportsman to play as many ball games as you can. It helps you develop.Tight squeeze: James Grayson tries to break the Ireland U20 defence (Getty Images)What positions have you played? last_img read more

For much of the game Bath were in control and yet could not make the pressure pay as they had to leave the Ricoh Arena with no points whatsoever.In terms of form, Bath have won their last three matches since the restart and yet they haven’t won four in succession in Gallagher Premiership Rugby since November 2016. Wasps on the other hand had a five-game winning streak snapped in a recent loss to Sale. Can’t get to the shops?

So a sense of joy and excitement at the launch was balanced by reverence and awe at the journey the Māori Scriptures have taken from the early 1800s to today.The new edition is a reformatted version of the current Māori translation, first published in 1952.To help Māori speakers, particularly second-language speakers, to better understand the text, Bible Society has added macrons to indicate long vowels.Along with macrons, the entire Bible has been reformatted into paragraphs, replacing the King James style in which each verse begins on a new line.“This task is much more difficult than it sounds, especially when it comes to books like the Psalms,” Stephen Pattemore, Bible Society’s translation services director, said.“Paragraphing brings a much more familiar look and feel to the text for today’s readers, who are likely to encounter paragraphs in almost everything they read.”Another small but detailed task was the insertion of speech marks. The 1952 edition did not have these, and so made it difficult to tell when someone was speaking.The new version also includes other carefully revised punctuation, section headings and maps, all aimed at aiding understanding.“These changes are more than the ‘emperor’s new clothes,’” Pattemore said.“They all help to make the text clearer and the message more understandable. That, combined with larger font and clearer print, makes a huge difference.”“The reformatting work is a means to an end,” explained Salvation Army Commissioner Donald Bell, who spoke at the launch as Bible Society New Zealand president.“The desired outcome of this project has always been to encourage and aid Māori in their engagement with the Bible. With the publication of this edition, we pray that more Māori will encounter God through the Bible and share his love in their communities.”The service was conducted entirely in Māori with four Bible passages read from the new edition. At the conclusion of the service, Archbishop Brown Turei blessed the new edition as it begins its journey to the hands of Māori speakers everywhere.Earlier, Commissioner Bell reported a marked increase in demand for Māori Scriptures since the reformatted New Testament was published in 2008.High pre-release demand for the full Bible edition shows there is no abating in the popularity of the Māori Bible.

So far, the diocese has received 72 Christian, Hindu, Sikh and a few Shia Muslim families into its Bannu camp, with more expected.The permanent camp is set up at a local high school where the diocese looks after the families’ physical and spiritual needs. Diocesan clergy are on site to provide spiritual counseling.Diocese of Peshawar has three churches in Bannu, a school and a hospital that are all being used to meet the IDP’s needs. On top of caring for the minority displaced families, the diocese also sends resource teams to help care for many Muslims who are also displaced.The operation in North Waziristan, launched by the Pakistani Army, has caused nearly half a million people, many Christians among them, to seek refuge elsewhere.Last year, All Saints Church in Peshawar was the site of a suicide bombing that killed at least 78 people in the church and left scores injured. The diocese has since partnered with the Church of Scotland to support families affected by the bombing.One of the eight dioceses making up the Church in Pakistan, the Diocese of Peshawar was one of the first to respond to an Afghan refugee influx, providing medical teams and relief operations. The Diocese of Peshawar serves roughly 100,000 Christians in the region, with 50 percent coming from the Church of Pakistan.On June 8, a special interdenominational worship celebration was held at the United Church, University Campus Peshawar to celebrate Pentecost Day. The Rt. Rev. Humphrey S. Peters attended the celebration where more than 500 people gathered to hear his message of unity.The diocese also recently hosted a camp where 60 children and 35 teachers gathered from all over Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province for teaching and storytelling about spiritual growth in Jesus Christ.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York St. Philip’s In The Hills Episcopal Parish, Tucson, Arizona, is pleased to announce that they have called a new rector, the Rev. Robert J. Hendrickson III. This is the culmination of a transition process that began in April 2015, when the previous rector, the Rev. Canon John E. Kitagawa, announced his intention to retire on July 31 of that year.Hendrickson comes to St. Philip’s after serving for three years as the sub dean and acting dean of St. John’s Cathedral in Denver, Colorado. He was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the cathedral’s ministries and worship, cathedral administration, and the development of new mission initiatives. As sub dean, Hendrickson oversaw the work of the 19 lay professionals who work in communications, finance, administration, music, and formation. In addition to the lay staff, Hendrickson oversaw and coordinated the programmatic work of three canons and the curate.He attended General Theological Seminary in New York, was ordained to the priesthood in 2011, and served as a curate at Christ Church, New Haven, Connecticut. There he started the Saint Hilda’s House and Ascension House intentional communities in which as many as 22 young adults a year worked and prayed together for the good of the poor in the city. He has also worked with the ecumenical office of the Episcopal Church, co-founded the Society of Catholic Priests of the Episcopal Church, and recently completed a book on young adult ministry titled Yearning: Authentic Transformation, Young Adults, and the Church. He is currently working on two separate books: one on mission titled Broken and Blessed: Sacraments and Service in the Church and Sacramental Leadership: Making Christ Known in Our Parish Culture.Hendrickson’s proudest achievement at St. John’s was his leadership in the partnership that is constructing permanent housing on the cathedral’s property for 52 formerly homeless individuals. The groundbreaking took place on June 5.Hendrickson attended Cornell University, studying Chinese language, and Beijing Foreign Studies University, studying Chinese language and Modern Chinese History. His undergraduate work was in international studies at the Croft Institute at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). Prior to ordained ministry, Hendrickson was the corporate communications director for Brooks Brothers, leading the creative staff in producing catalogs, web site design, and internal communications.He is married to Dr. Karrie Cummings Hendrickson, who is a researcher for Yale-New Haven Hospital. They have two sons, Nikolas (age 5) and Brayden (age 2).The Hendricksons are thrilled to be coming to Tucson. “Karrie and I cannot begin to express the excitement we are feeling as we prepare to minister alongside you all in the city of Tucson. ‘The holiness of beauty’ has proved true in every way in our walk with you through this discernment. The space is gorgeous, the building evocative, and the grounds stunning. Yet it was none of these things that truly drew us — the real beauty here is the people we have met. Your faith, generosity of spirit, joy, and genuine loving-kindness are a joy to us. Sometimes, in the midst of the many changes and chances in this life, it can be hard to imagine that God is working something miraculous for us. Then you meet a friend, find a place, or hear a word that lets you see and know that all shall be well — that God is taking our whole lives and our too few days and blessing us without ceasing. This has been our experience of St. Philip’s — we have met friends and found a place and heard from you the kind of faith and compassion that will make it a blessing to us and, more importantly, that will be the rich ground where we will meet and bless so many in this city. May God add his blessing to all the work and worship that we will offer in his name at St. Philip’s for years to come!” Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Tampa, FL Rector Hopkinsville, KY Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Submit a Job Listing Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Knoxville, TN Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Pittsburgh, PAlast_img read more

He was 78. Masekela was described in one obituary as “one of the world’s finest and most distinctive horn players, whose performing on trumpet and flugelhorn mixed jazz with South African styles and music from across the African continent and diaspora.” But he will also be remembered for his 30-year campaign against apartheid during his exile from South Africa.Read the entire article here.
