Is Owen Farrell finally ready to go toe-to-toe with Dan Carter?

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By Alex ShawReputations are hard to shed once they’ve been cast and in no arena do fans stick to these often outdated misconceptions more so than in rugby.Since making his England debut in 2012, Owen Farrell has been an acquired taste for most rugby fans outside of England – as well as a significant portion inside, too. He was, even then, unfairly labelled as a player who could only kick goals and tickle ribs with his robust defence. The passion he played with, which often saw him shout in frustration or converse heatedly with the referee, was termed as petulance.For those who derided Farrell with self-righteous pomposity, saying there was no place in rugby for that kind of behaviour, they probably don’t want to be reminded that Johnny Sexton, the most-celebrated of northern hemisphere fly-halves for the last five years, plays with that same level of passion that leads to on-field outbursts. Come to think of it, they probably don’t want to be reminded of Peter O’Mahony, Mike Brown, Tendai Mtawarira or Stephen Moore. The list goes on.Creative spark: Farrell has added an attacking dimension to his play this seasonLike all good rugby players who breakthrough into test rugby at a tender age, Farrell has evolved as the years have gone by. He has picked up 40 caps since his debut against Scotland and the man that now stands ready to take on Dan Carter and Racing 92, before packing his bags for Australia, is a vastly different to the one who helped England to a victory at Murrayfield that day.Sure, he still plays with that same passion and defensive intensity that can see him barrack in frustration or put in a tackle that creeps a little too high, but those are minimal risks to absorb in order to accommodate a player who plays as hard as Farrell does, not to mention brings an unaccustomed relish for defending to the No 10 jersey. Farrell is clearly a far more cerebral and composed player now than he was four years ago.Where Farrell’s evolution has really occurred, however, is in his attacking game. Where once you would see a deep back line, ready to receive telegraphed passes, you now see a staggered, scattering of options. His backline colleagues, whether that’s with Saracens or England, know that Farrell has a long and varied list of passes in his repertoire and they’re allowing him to direct the backline with assurance and guile. Real deal: Dan Carter has proved his mettle in Europe this seasonFlat passes on the gain line, Leinster-inspired wraparounds, cat-flap offloads, miss-passes over onrushing defences and a more than solid eye for a gap. Indeed, the attacking renaissance at Saracens is more attributable to Farrell more than any other individual. Since the British and Irish Lions tour in 2013, Farrell has been becoming a more adept attacking fly-half and the fruits of those labours have really paid off in the 2015/16 season.Now Farrell faces one of the biggest challenges of his career to date, taking on Carter in the European Rugby Champions Cup final. Farrell and Saracens faced heartbreak two years ago when they took on the celebrated Jonny Wilkinson and Toulon, and now it’s the Kiwi who stands in the youngster’s way.If Carter is the Superman of the rugby world, clean-cut and beyond reproach, then Farrell is, to many, much more like Wolverine. A darker anti-hero who the traditionalists can admonish, but who will then rush to heap praise on players who bring all the same qualities to the table as Farrell but who aren’t, well, Farrell.Euro heartache: Farrell lost out in 2014, losing to Jonny Wilkinson’s ToulonThere is no sterner test for this new and improved Farrell than the one that Carter will bring on Saturday. Carter vied with Wilkinson for the title of the world’s best, prior to that it was Andrew Mehrtens, who took it from Michael Lynagh and so it goes on all the way back to the Welsh duo of Barry John and Phil Bennett. The question is, is this the beginning of Farrell’s march towards adding himself to that list? Contentious, yes, but not outlandish. One-track mind: Farrell is a famously dedicated professional center_img Only 24, but already vastly experienced, Owen Farrell has evolved brilliantly this season and should have no insecurities about facing the world’s best, in Dan Carter In fairness, there are no shortage of exquisite fly-halves currently plying their trade in world rugby. New Zealand is teeming with them, most notably Beauden Barrett and Aaron Cruden, although Lima Sopoaga is fast making up ground. Australia have Bernard Foley, Johnny Sexton is far from done in his career, whilst Carter still owns the title and even at 34, has shown very few signs of slowing down. Players such as Dan Biggar, George Ford and Handré Pollard also deserve mention, even if the last six months haven’t seen them at their most illustrious.New world order: Aaron Cruden is one of a clutch of top-class 10s in the gameFarrell is scaling Mount Olympus, though, make no bones about that. He has the skillset, winners mentality and the physical robustness to be as good as he wants to be and he will be tested against the very best in the coming months at the European final, Aviva Premiership play-offs and tour of Australia. How he emerges from those tests will go a long way to deciding where Farrell currently sits in the pantheon of rugby’s current great fly-halves.last_img read more

The making of Kyle Sinckler

first_img Attacking threat: Kyle Sinckler breaks against Scotland during the Six Nations (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS We speak to four people who have played a part in the prop’s journey to England star The making of Kyle SincklerHarlequins tighthead Kyle Sinckler has fast become a mainstay in Eddie Jones’s first XV and is playing a significant role in England’s World Cup bid in Japan. Here we talk to four people who have been part of Sinckler’s journey from a junior player at Battersea Ironsides to a Test Lion in New Zealand to get an insight into the 26-year-old from those who know him best…THE TEACHERStacia Long helped a teenage Sinckler to set up a rugby team at Graveney School in South London“Kyle was one of three or four boys in his year group who played rugby outside of school and were keen to set up a school team. I told them I didn’t know anything about rugby so wouldn’t be much use from a coaching perspective, but Kyle said, ‘That’s fine. Me and the boys will sort that if you can find fixtures and get us there’. He would have been about 13 and what struck me was his willingness and ability to overcome problems.“We didn’t have enough boys from one year group, so we’d choose boys from the year below. Then more kids got interested and rugby in the school started to grow. We saw turnarounds in behaviour because they had an outlet; they could be physical on the rugby pitch rather than the playground.“We didn’t have a pitch on site so we’d play matches against other state schools on public parks or at rugby clubs. We did a bit of training, but only on a 30m by 40m bit of grass and not very often. It was things like learning to tackle safely. Kyle did a lot of that – the boys who could play helped others.“He would flit between positions in games. He’d start at fly-half and then there would be a scrum and he’d think, ‘I could be useful here’. So he’d go to prop and then back to fly-half. Playing multiple positions helped develop his game understanding and ability to bring others into the game. He had a good skill-set for someone of his shape and size. He’d have been used as a battering ram by some schools but he couldn’t afford to be like that for us. I switch on the TV now, see his soft hands and think, ‘That’s the Kyle I know. That’s what he’d do for us’.“Rugby is his love, his passion, and what stood out for me was he knew where he wanted to get to and would make sacrifices to do it. He showed such maturity. All his friends would go to parties on a Friday night, but he’d be getting ready for a game on Sunday. It showed how important rugby was to him.Related: Downtime with Kyle Sinckler“The media have given him this reputation as the bad boy of English rugby. People talk about him losing control, but I think it’s a fine balance of a young man pumped up to be as physical and aggressive as he can, but then expected not to react when people do or say things to him.“If you look at the demographic of rugby, how many people fit into his category of mixed race, single parent, non rugby-playing school? There are probably another 20 Kyles in or around inner London who don’t feel like they belong and still look at rugby as a white, middle-class sport. Celebrate what Kyle has achieved; use him as a role model.“When Kyle was 16, he got a scholarship to Epsom College. Other boys saw you could come from a school like Graveney and get a scholarship to an independent school and that motivated a lot of them. By the time I left the school in 2017, we had a team in every age group and a girls’ team. That’s the legacy of Kyle playing rugby.“It put me on a new path, too. I started my coaching qualifications when we set up that team and now work at Trinity School where rugby is the main sport and I’m director of rugby at Old Ruts.”THE SCOUTCollin Osborne spotted Sinckler in an U12s game and got him involved in the Harlequins and Surrey set-ups“My son was playing for KCS Old Boys and Kyle was playing for the opposition, Battersea Ironsides. He was playing very well at full-back and centre – very good hands, very competitive, very physical, quick off the mark. He didn’t have sustained speed but the damage was done in those first five metres.“It was his belligerence that most impressed me. Every Sunday morning I was following my son around and I’d see a lot of good players, but he stood out physically and with his belligerence.“He was incredibly competitive and wanted to win every hit. At U12 level that was an unusual quality, to have that degree of desire to win – and that is very difficult to coach. You usually don’t see it until U15s, when puberty kicks in and boys become very competitive.“That first game I saw him play, there were a few confrontations and he was at the heart of them. He was obviously talented but he got frustrated in games and wasn’t sure how to deal with it. I told him he had potential to do good things if he learnt how to control that aggression; it wasn’t about losing aggression but harnessing it. I said, ‘Come to the club with me and let’s see what we can do’.Power play: Kyle Sinckler charges upfield for Harlequins (Getty Images)“At the time I was academy manager at Quins and the EPDG (Elite Player Development Group) sessions started at U13. Surrey also had a set-up for boys who didn’t go to rugby-playing schools. They would work on skills as well as conditioning. He used to do weight training in Crystal Palace with Keith Morgan, who’d coached GB Olympic weightlifters. He took to that very well.“I think it was a coach at London Scottish U15, where a group of them moved, who suggested Kyle move to prop. I remember them playing in North London one Sunday and I got him on the scrum machine afterwards, showing him where to put his feet, etc. I said, ‘Become a decent tighthead prop and you can write own cheque!’ He fancied himself as fly-half or centre, but tightheads are worth their weight in gold.“Kyle has always been driven. He commits. He prides himself on his physicality and getting him to work hard in the gym has never been an issue because he sees the correlation between that and physical performance.“He still has moments when he’s losing control but if he recognises it, he’ll know to do something about it. When he doesn’t recognise it, he gets himself into trouble. It’s all heat-of-moment stuff. It’s all very well in calm environments to see the logic in what people are saying. It’s doing that when the pressure is on. TAGS: Harlequins “From a coaching point of view, you look at whether the downside outweighs the good he brings and the reality is he does so many good things. He has wonderful qualities that few others have.”THE COACHGraham Rowntree has worked with Sinckler with England, Harlequins and the 2017 Lions in New Zealand“England took him to New Zealand in 2014 and he played well in the midweek game against the Crusaders before the third Test. That was my first taste of him. He then went off the radar for a bit and came back on the scene after I’d left England. Eddie Jones got him involved and took him to Australia in 2016 and I joined Quins at the end of 2016, so I was then working with him every day.“I loved working with him, for Quins, for England and for the Lions. He’s incredibly enthusiastic, is very diligent in the gym and with his prehab. He’s a sponge for knowledge – that is one of his greatest attributes. He’s a bit of a rugby nause, too, and would come up to ask me for stories about the ABC club (Leicester’s front row). He’d tell me what he’d heard about Darren Garforth and Richard Cockerill before.Surge: Kyle Sinckler in action against USA at Japan 2019 (Getty Images)“He can be too enthusiastic at times and that can creep into his game, but he’s still a young man and has only established himself as a starter for his country over the last season. He still has a lot to learn tactically and that comes down to experience. He plays the game with real energy and with experience he’ll learn to curb that sometimes, but you don’t want him to change that aggression he brings.“Tighthead is a position where you have to experience different props against you, different pressures mentally and physically. You have to experience those things to learn how to cope with them. He does get targeted but it’s learning how to deal with it; you can only do that through experience and listening to the people around you.“He has great mentors in Adam Jones at Quins and Hats (Neal Hatley) at England. Joe Marler’s taken him under his wing too. He’s learning off all three.“Over the past couple of years his scrummaging has come on more than anything. Scrummaging-wise he gets in an incredibly low position. I noticed that with the Lions (in 2017). Teams were trying to attack him and get under him, but they physically couldn’t because he was so low. He’s strong, squat, gets very low and you can’t move him.“He does a lot of things that other props don’t do, too. Outside of the set-piece, he has a high tackle count and is an aggressive tackler. He’s not afraid to nominate himself to carry ball and Quins use him as a ball player off short lineouts, similar to how Saracens use Mako Vunipola in the middle of the field. He gives a well-timed pass, and we’ve all seen his explosiveness when he has the ball. He can finish a line break, which a lot of props can’t. He’s one of the best tightheads in the world and has the ability to get in the top three.”THE TEAM-MATEJoe Marler has played alongside Sinckler in the front row for Harlequins, England and the Lions“The first time I was aware of Kyle was seeing him and George Merrick pointing at the camera in an U20s’ Six Nations game. I noticed because that’s exactly what I was like, a gob****e. I thought, ‘I might have my hands full, a contender for the biggest k*** at the club’.“He was actually quite respectful with me (when we met). I used to train early on my own and he asked, ‘Is it okay if I train with you? If it’s good enough for Joe Marler, it’s good enough for me’. I told him not to set his ambition so low!“He often gets a bit misunderstood. He can be quite a handful, but that’s how passionate he is for the sport. He does have a reputation and he can live up to that at times, but he’s matured pretty quickly in the past 18 months if you look at how he’s been with England. The more exposure you get at that level in a starting position, the quicker you grow up. He’s doing that and England are starting to benefit from it.Double act: Joe Marler and Kyle Sinckler go through their stretches (Getty Images)“His biggest strength is people don’t think he has an understanding of the game. He’s aggressive and physical, and people think he’s just all-out passion and abrasiveness – but he’s not.“He’ll tell the backs, ‘This is a decent move to try’ and I’d think, ‘Hang on, you’re a tighthead prop’, but if you listen to what he’s saying he makes a fair point. He’s definitely underestimated.“He wants to be involved in all the big moments; he’s not happy just to do the dog work and just do what every other tighthead does. Now he’s doing the nuts and bolts – those cliché words – as well as the X-factor stuff around the park.“The more exposure you get against top-level looseheads and questions are asked of you, the more times you come up with solutions and adapt. He’s now had experiences and is improving in that area. In him and Mako (Vunipola), England have the best loosehead in the world and potentially the best tighthead. Tadhg Furlong is up there now because of his out-and-out scrummaging ability as well as everything else, but Sincks is not too far off. England could have the two best props in the world soon.“My favourite story about Sincks comes from the Lions tour. Gats (Warren Gatland) had been saying pre-tour he was looking for X-factor, do something out of the norm. Playing against the Provincial Barbarians in the first game, we were jet-lagged and hanging 55 minutes in, looking to get more control in the game. We got a penalty on halfway and everyone was thinking, ‘Do we put it in the corner or go for three?’ Then Sincks took a quick tap and ran off. He got isolated and turned over.“I asked him, ‘What the hell was all that about?’ He said, ‘Gats is looking for X-factor.’ He was then hauled off and seeing his face as he went off I thought, ‘Poor sod’. Fair play, though, maybe it was X-factor because he was picked in the match 23 for the Tests!” This article appeared in the September 2019 issue of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

Archbishop of Canterbury issues statement on Synod vote on marriage,…

People are made in the image of God. All of us, without exception, are loved and called in Christ. There are no ‘problems’, there are simply people.How we deal with the real and profound disagreement – put so passionately and so clearly by many at the Church of England’s General Synod debate on marriage and same-sex relationships today – is the challenge we face as people who all belong to Christ.To deal with that disagreement, to find ways forward, we need a radical new Christian inclusion in the Church. This must be founded in scripture, in reason, in tradition, in theology; it must be based on good, healthy, flourishing relationships, and in a proper 21st century understanding of being human and of being sexual.We need to work together – not just the bishops but the whole Church, not excluding anyone – to move forward with confidence.The vote today is not the end of the story, nor was it intended to be. As bishops we will think again and go on thinking, and we will seek to do better. We could hardly fail to do so in the light of what was said this afternoon.The way forward needs to be about love, joy and celebration of our humanity; of our creation in the image of God, of our belonging to Christ – all of us, without exception, without exclusion.

Ebico teams up with Groundwork to tackle fuel poverty

Ebico teams up with Groundwork to tackle fuel poverty AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: corporate Funding Ebico commits £120,000 to save over 1,000 UK homes from fuel povertyThe UK’s only not-for-profit energy company, Ebico, has committed £120,000 to UK environmental charity Groundwork, to help 1,250 households out of fuel poverty and save £100,000 per year on their fuel bills. The funds will support the implementation of the ‘Green Doctor’ programme in fuel poor homes around the southeast of England and South Wales.The Green Doctor programme is the first initiative to be funded by the Ebico Trust, which was set up to combat fuel poverty in the UK and promote sustainable development.“Ten years ago we set up Ebico because we could see that the so-called ‘liberalisation’ of the market would result in losers as well as winners, and the success of Ebico is living proof that there is market solution that works for everyone. As a result of our success in growing Ebico over the last decade, we are in a position to put what surplus income we have into The Ebico Trust, which has been set up with the same vision and mission as Ebico, to eradicate fuel poverty in the UK,” says Phil Levermore, co-founder and managing director of Ebico.With the economy in turmoil and high gas and electricity prices continuing, the Green Doctor programme will be on-call to help cash-strapped householders by giving them advice and assistance that will improve the energy efficiency of their homes and save them money. The ‘Green Doctors’ will be targeting homes in North London, Reading/Slough and South Wales.The scheme will see fully trained experts make free house calls to conduct energy use audits. Using a combination of technical and non-technical measures, from fitting draught excluders to topping up loft insulation, the two-year programme will help 1,250 households save £100,000 per year while reducing CO2 emissions by up to 680 tonnes each year.“We are extremely proud to be part of the Groundwork ‘Green Doctor’ programme which not only delivers social benefits but environmental ones too,” continues Phil Levermore.Groundwork Chief Executive, Tony Hawkhead, agrees the Green Doctors will have a massive impact on low-income households, adding, “Tenants of rented accommodation can be at the mercy of their landlords when it comes to energy performance.“They also tend to be poorer than those who own their own homes and less able to cope with the financial consequences of fuel poverty caused by badly insulated or draughty accommodation.“The Green Doctor is not just about handing out light-bulbs and loft insulation.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Senators Call on EPA to Protect the Integrity of the RFS SHARE Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Jan 14, 2021 SHARE More lawmakers are pressing the Trump administration to avoid making any decisions on small refinery exemptions until after the Supreme Court rules in pending litigation.Thursday, a group of Midwest Senators penned a letter to the administration. The letter states, “Alarming new reports indicate that your Environmental Protection Agency may issue numerous pending small refinery exemptions which would be a devastating blow to biofuels producers and the farmers who sell to them.”The effort follows a similar letter by the House Biofuels Caucus earlier this week. The letters stem from a Reuters report that the Trump administration was readying three new waivers for compliance year 2019.The Senate effort includes Republicans Chuck Grassley, Joni Ernst, both of Iowa, along with Roger Marshall of Kansas, Mike Rounds of South Dakota, and Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley of Missouri. Meanwhile, the EPA Thursday proposed extending the RFS compliance deadline for the 2019 compliance year to November 2021 and the 2020 deadlines to 2022.

So you find ways to make it fun for them, like the 5K, and also the growing out the mustaches for the month of Movember.”  The Movember Foundation was founded in 2003 and is the only global organization that raises funds for men’s health and supports programs for prostate cancer, testicle cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Last fall, the IFC men made Movember their philanthropy and have been coming up with new ways to get the entire campus involved.“For me, it’s all about awareness, so as long as more people know what Movember stands for we’re making an impact,” said Konecky. “I just wanted to see everyone come out and have a good time and have a good race. I wanted a good turn out, which is what I think we have for our first race.”There were 256 registered runners signed up for the 5K, and all of them were considered winners. “I [got] to hand out medals and [I was] really excited to do that because everyone’s a winner today,” said Maddiy Reimer, a sophomore nursing major. “It’s not about competing today. It’s about supporting men’s health and participating in charity events.”Throughout November, IFC will be hosting more events to raise awareness for men’s health.
