60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 2000s

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSSkip AdAds by Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten international… Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten international tries from the Noughties 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 2000sWe’re now well into the era of professionalism, which featured a period of English dominance, a South African resurgence and some glorious running rugby. The 2007 World Cup must have had the best collection of tries of any tournament ever played – every other match seemingly saw a length-of-the-field effort.Some honourable mentions of tries unlucky to miss out – from RWC 2007 came Vilimoni Delasau’s chip-and-chase against Wales, a try integral in Fiji’s march to the knockout stages, and Jacques Fourie’s try against the Lions in 2009, in which the Springbok somehow fought off three defenders to power into the corner.With tries as good as these not on the list, what were the ten best international tries of the Noughties?Christian Cullen (New Zealand) v Australia, 2000Picking any top ten list is always difficult – and subjective. In this instance, do you prefer power or pace, stepping or gliding, invention or precision?Christian Cullen’s 2000 try against the Wallabies somehow combines many of these facets, becoming one of the greatest set-piece tries because of the way its execution matches its imagination.Australia believe that Justin Marshall is a front lifter, before the nine spins from the lineout to fling the ball out to Carlos Spencer, who runs a loop around a strange clump of three forwards, all of whom are facing the wrong way, bound up like a front row. Confused? Try being the defenders.The dizzying move continues as interplay between Jonah Lomu and Tana Umaga puts the latter into space. There were enough Australian tacklers about – they just have no idea where to look, and Umaga takes advantage to scythe through, draw the full-back and put Christian Cullen in for one of the easiest of his 46 All Black tries.Brian O’Driscoll (British & Irish Lions) v Australia, 2001 The greatest try from arguably the greatest centre. Almost decapitated a phase before (keep a close eye on the start of the video), a simple shimmy somehow sees three Wallaby defenders beaten.The most beautiful part of the score is the way in which O’Driscoll comes to what almost feels a complete stop, before beating Chris Latham with a quick feint to the left and then re-accelerating to beat Joe Roff to the line.Only 22 years old and winning a Test match for the Lions. As the commentator cries, “Oh, you beauty!’Ben Cohen (England) v Ireland, 2002A criticism of England throughout their greatest period was a perceived boring style of play – win scrums, win lineouts, win penalties, kick the penalties. But they really could play some wonderful rugby – a shining example being their dominant 45-11 win over Ireland in 2002.So far in these lists we’ve seen a number of tries scored directly from kick-off – Fijian offloading in 1970, Kirwan’s magic in 1987 – but England’s effort challenges them both, the ball passing through 11 pairs of hands in a flowing move.After Austin Healey finds space outside, Kyran Bracken takes the ball on and, with a simple hip swivel, the pitch suddenly opens up.There follows a wonderful straight footrace between Mike Tindall and Denis Hickie, the latter pulling off an excellent tackle, but the ball finds its way via Joe Worsley to Ben Cohen to add another try to a quite remarkable scoring record.Rupeni Caucaunibuca (Fiji) v France, 2003 I’ve already spoken at length about my appreciation of Rupeni Caucaunibuca, and this try was his tour de force (see 2:10 on the video). The match encapsulated his career – beguiling speed and rash decisions, a wonderful try and a two-week ban.Taking a wonderful looped pass from full-back Norman Ligairi (who scored a wonderful try of his own this tournament), there seemed no chance of Caucau scoring. But he surged to the outside of Aurelien Rougerie, never gave Imanol Harinordoquy a chance and made swerving inside Nicolas Brusque look as simple as hopping onto a bus. It all just looked… so easy.Caucau would later be suspended for punching Olivier Magne, but he’d return to score two sparkling tries against Scotland.Joe Rokocoko (New Zealand) v South Africa, 2003 This try is all about one skill, a pass so good that it became known as ‘the Carlos Spencer’.Spencer holds a strange place in memories of All Black tens: thrilling to watch, yet often unfairly maligned for losing matches (the very game after this try, he’d be castigated for throwing an intercept to Stirling Mortlock in the World Cup semi-final). But still, this moment captures all of Spencer’s allure, the touch of magic he possessed.Now, the sensible play when a metre from the opponent’s line without any penalty advantage is to rumble it up through the forwards for a few phases, suck up the defence, and then maybe go wide.Not for Spencer. On second phase he takes a short pass from Justin Marshall, turns to face infield, then suddenly flings the ball backwards between his legs to Rokocoko, who would have an easy finish in the corner.It’s not immediately clear why he does it – the defence were already slightly out of position. But on second viewing you can see South African centre De Wet Barry check his run slightly – giving Rokocoko the metre of space he needs. Visionary.MORE GREAT TRIES… 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1980s 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1970s 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1990s Expand Expand Collapse 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1960s Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten Test…center_img Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten Test… 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1960s Waltzing O’Driscoll: Lions centre Brian O”Driscoll en route to his try against Australia (Getty Images) Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten international… 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1980s 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1970s Can’t get to the shops?

Stephen Jones (Wales) v England, 2003One of the great Welsh tries (see 0:43 on the video), echoing those great sides of the 1970s with a vintage first-half performance against the eventual world champions.Shane Williams would start the move with the admittedly simple task of sidestepping Ben Kay. He’d find Gareth Cooper scampering through, who would in turn pass to Gareth Thomas, who had already started to stumble before catching the ball.Thomas would somehow keep it alive, flipping it back to Williams, who’d juggle the ball like a nervous circus performer before knocking it inside to the chasing Stephen Jones to score. The whole thing took only 13 seconds.This game could have seen two tries on our list – it’s worth playing the highlights through to see Jason Robinson’s electric run and precision pass to set up Will Greenwood’s try in the corner. Which do you think is better?Dan Carter (New Zealand) v Lions, 2005The greatest fly-half performance of all time had a try to match (see 0:50 on the video). Carter was the conductor of the All Black orchestra in the second Test; a sparkling break had already set up Tana Umaga but better still was to come.Ghosting onto a Rodney So’oialo pass, he purred by Jonny Wilkinson – and it felt like a power-shift, an assertion of who was the best stand-off in the world. He’d show why in the next second.Running at full speed, without breaking stride, Carter would dribble a grubber along a tightrope, defying the looming touchline, tiptoeing around Josh Lewsey and diving on the loose ball to score.Sometimes great tries are ruined by the TMO. Not this, as we got to watch it over and over again before the score was finally awarded.Kosuke Endo (Japan) v Wales, 2007 Few tries start with a spark of invention from a second-row (with apologies to Leone Nakarawa, fighting a lone battle against this statement), but this length-of-the-field effort from Japan is one such moment.Japan had a terrible tournament, failing to win a game and squeaking to a late draw against Canada, but they showed a flash of the potential realised eight years later, albeit in this 72-18 loss to Wales.Hitoshi Ono is now Japan’s most-capped player, but as a World Cup rookie in 2007 he was desperate to impress and turned over Alix Popham on his own line before marauding upfield.Beautiful hands from fly-half Bryce Robins would find Yuta Imamura, whose outstanding pace would crucially draw Shane Williams off his wing.This made the space for Kosuke Endo, although it still took an excellent floated pass from Imamura to find him streaking into the corner for a try as good as any scored that tournament.Takudzwa Ngwenya (USA) v South Africa, 2007 Bryan Habana was the star of the 2007 World Cup, so when an unknown winger burned past him, everyone took notice.It all began with talismanic flanker Todd Clever, who intercepted a Fourie du Preez pass on his own line and set off upfield. Biffing Butch James out of the way, he found Alec Parker, and in turn Mike Hercus, who knew the one thing he had to do immediately was get the ball to Takudzwa Ngwenya.Ngwenya had a personal best of 10.5 seconds in the 100m – a fact Bryan Habana wasn’t aware of, considering himself as the quickest man in the tournament. He showed Ngwenya the outside, and, after a moment’s hesitation, the American winger took it.The surprise is clear from Habana’s gait, suddenly stiffening from a jog to desperate sprint, all to no avail, as Ngwenya showed a jet pair of heels to score US rugby’s most famous try.Federico Martin Aramburu (Argentina) v France, 2007 It had stiff competition, but the score awarded best try at the 2007 World Cup came in the penultimate game – and it was a suitable monument to the surprise package of the competition, Argentina.Ignacio Corleto had ignited the tournament for the Pumas in the opening match, scoring an excellent try against the French. France must have been sick of the sight of his flowing locks, as the full-back started the move that would seal third place for Argentina with a dashing break that beat five defenders.Caught on the 22, he fired a desperate offload and, with the move kept alive by two forwards, the ball found its way to Juan Martin Hernandez. The fly-half was the standout ten of the tournament and put a final flourish on his credentials with a pass that looked a lazy heave but turned into a dead-eyed bullet.It found second-row Rimas Alvarez Kairelis, who had the good sense to not ruin the score by attempting to finish the move himself, shipping the ball on to Federico Martin Aramburu, who would skip over in the corner.

Tadao Ando’s design for the Koshino House features two parallel concrete rectangular confines. The forms are partially buried into the sloping ground of a national park and become a compositional addition to the landscape. Placed carefully as to not disrupt the pre-existing trees on the site, the structure responds to the adjacent ecosystem while the concrete forms address a more general nature through a playful manipulation of light.

The southern mass then consists of six linearly organized children’s bedrooms, a bathroom and a lobby. Connecting the two spaces is a below grade tunnel that lies beneath the exterior stairs of the courtyard.Save this picture!© Kazunori FujimotoAndo used the space within the two rectangular prisms as a way to express the fundamental nature of the site. This space reveals a courtyard that drapes over and contours to the natural topography. Save this picture!© Kazunori FujimotoA wide set of stairs follows the sloping land into the enclosed exterior space and allows the light that penetrates through the canopy of trees into the sunken courtyard. This self-governing space represents the fold of nature that has been bound by the conditioned structures and become synthetic.Save this picture!© Kazunori FujimotoNarrow apertures have been punched through the façades adjacent to the exterior staircase and manipulate complex crossings of natural light and shadow into the interior spaces. The patterns provide the only amount of ornament to the simple rooms. Other slots are cut from various planes of the two modules to produce the same effect of complexity throughout the entire house.Save this picture!ElevationFour years after the original construction, Ando designed a new addition to the compound. Placed to the north of the existing structures, the new cave-like space rests within the upward sloping piece of land. The study features a bold curve in contradiction to the rectilinear organization, initiating a completely new rhythm.Save this picture!© Kazunori FujimotoSeparate from the original courtyard design, the space between the addition and the original mass allows nature to remove the forms from each other. A patch of grass weaves its way between the concrete structures, while the curved wall extends from the building to define the exterior space. Similar to the other boxes, a slice of the ceiling plane along the curved wall is removed to add that bit of complexity and ornamentation to the interior; however, the curved patterns of light greatly differ from the linear patterns in the former building.Save this picture!© Kazunori FujimotoProject gallerySee allShow lessInstitutes of Higher Learning Proposal / Adrian LoArticlesBall State University, College of Architecture and Planning 2011 Gresham Smith Desig…Articles Share CopyAbout this officeTadao Ando Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesAshiya-shiDabasHousesResidential3D ModelingJapanPublished on September 25, 2011Cite: Taylor Metcalf. “AD Classics: Koshino House / Tadao Ando Architect & Associates” 25 Sep 2011.

The program also called for a studio linked to the social areas of the house and that the father would use his working space. The family expressed their desire for the house to have a generous outdoor gallery equipped with a grill. Special emphasis was put on the fact that the house should be sheltered from the street and look out for intimacy in the private areas.The Studio designed a single exposed concrete volume occupying the site’s maximum building width longitudinally and whose shell would open towards the green space at the back of the site.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenOrganized at the front of the house, the spaces housing the entrance area, circulations and washing rooms separate the street from the nobler programmatic uses set on the rear and endowed with openings towards the sky and the garden.Not only did the concrete’s structural system serve the house as a supporting skeleton, it also functioned as a space organizer.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSet longitudinally along the volume’s length, two parallel continuous beams support the slab over the ground floor, and the same structure is replicated over the first floor. Blind walls at the sides of the house both provide privacy to the inside and underpin these wide spanned beams. While allowing greater freedom when designing the front and rear openings, the rigid frame structure configuration of the house makes it possible to generate a big free floor plan central space housing a unified living room and dining area. Being also a beam, the great concrete cover on the front of the house permits transparent openings on the ground floor, allowing visual fluidity between the garden and the street. The private rooms on the first floor are strongly related to the outside through their glazed surfaces, and the master bedroom expands towards a private outdoor space with generous views towards the garden.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenRegarding passive solar control, the concrete cover on the front thermally protects the southeastern side of the house, the least sunny one. On the back, above the outdoor expansion of the private rooms, while a series of vertical cantilevered partitions function as shades that shelter the inside against the sunlight from the west, a horizontal eave that goes all along the house’s width protects them from the north sunrays. This outdoor expansion on the first floor acts as roof for the gallery downstairs. Being a transition between the social areas inside and the green space outside, it graduates the passage from one sector to the other, at once protecting the inside from the outside weather and allowing social activities in a sheltered outdoor space.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenClarity in the house’s tectonic means, simplicity in its construction and purity in its materials were aimed at. The use of concrete made it possible to organize, expand, fluidify, free, and open the space as well as link it with its surroundings.

Within the house, a timber-lined breezeway runs the full length of the building. It provides a dynamic, flexible space for the movement of air, people, and light. This carefully crafted timber spine warmly welcomes occupants and provides access to dynamic bedroom spaces that can open to each other as well as to a series of semi-enclosed garden rooms. The breezeway helps to thermally regulate the house and provides cross ventilation without compromising privacy.Save this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographySave this picture!ElevationsSurface sliding doors, high level sliding panels and louvres contribute to a spatial ambiguity between being indoors and outdoors, which is reflected in its materiality. The breezeway continues through to a balcony amongst the canopy of the fig trees and is supported above the ground by a self-bracing bent steel post. The under-croft area forms a sheltered space for both play and parking. Aside from access to the beach, the garden room to the east of the house includes beach amenities sheltered by a high recycled brick wall and provides a shower, seating as well as towel rails. Upstairs, living, dining and cooking spaces open up to elevated decks and terraces set amongst tree canopies and lookouts to the beach.Save this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographyOpenings are carefully positioned to screen existing and future neighbours, capture breezes and frame views of the headland. Two master bedrooms, twin interconnected bunkrooms allow for the flexibility of one, two or three family groups to simultaneously occupy the house. A multi-purpose playroom, generous seating areas, storage areas and numerous outdoor spaces provide plenty of opportunities for retreat as well as for gathering. Preference was given to materials that are natural, sustainable, robust and playful, emphasising moments of craft, patterns and texture to be discovered over time.

3 snippets of recent agency news – from new partnerships to campaigns

first_imgRNIB launches Lifechangers campaign with GOOD AgencyGOOD and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) have launched their second integrated fundraising campaign together.With 4 in 5 people not receiving the support they need when diagnosed with sight loss and 1.3 million eye appointments estimated to have been missed since the onset of the pandemic., the campaign highlights the need for the support of Eye Clinic Liaison Officers, or ECLOs, like Jenny, who features in it.The campaign features a direct response TV advert that sees Jenny tell her own story, from first being diagnosed with sight loss and having no support to becoming an RNIB ECLO and using her experience to explain, reassure, and advise from the point of diagnosis. With 250 people starting to lose their sight in the UK every day, Jenny is determined to help people change their lives and show as many people as possible that there is hope for the future.Designed to drive donations to help ECLOs reach more blind and partially sighted people with vital support, the ad began airing from 15 March. It is supported by digital and direct mail, also created by GOOD. The TV ad was produced by VINCE Productions.Associate Creative Director, Rosie Boon from GOOD said:“It was really important to tell Jenny’s story authentically from her personal experience, hearing how she felt so alone when her world was turned upside down by a sight loss diagnosis. We wanted to bring her lived experience and determination to change lives to the forefront of the campaign.”Director Joe Shaw from VINCE said: “It was a real privilege to work with RNIB on this campaign. As someone who has experienced sight loss herself, Jenny was perfectly able to capture the range of emotions that someone goes through in that situation and to explain the feeling of empowerment and independence she gained from the support available to her. Having worked a lot with ‘real people’, I knew that giving Jenny the time and space to be able to speak from her heart and to not be put off by the process of filming was key. By working with an almost documentary-style approach, the result is a message that you can tell comes from a totally genuine place and delivers the required impact.” Melanie May | 29 March 2021 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Key components of WPNC’s strategy will include product, proposition, creative work, supporter journey, and digital transformation.Following WPNC’s first piece of work after being appointed – a tactical Christmas appeal via Facebook and Instagram – the agency is now collaborating with the charity to develop a strategic plan to drive digital acquisition.VSO’s existing Individual Giving programme has faced a stern challenge from the far-reaching effects of the pandemic. WPNC has set to work with key strategic sessions bringing together teams from across the organisation to help drive the new proposition. Work will involve: generating insights to inform the fundraising strategy for the next three years, new product development, core proposition, and creative strategy.Natalie Jones, Head of Supporter Engagement VSO, commented:“We are delighted to be working with WPNC and we look forward to a successful partnership. We were really impressed with the efforts put into the tender process throughout, the team, insights, processes, approach and the collaborative way of working. Together I think we will deliver good work and an exciting new offer with a new product.”Hannah Williams, Client Services Director at WPNC, added:“VSO is a charity with a strong and positive reputation. We are proud and delighted to be selected to help the organisation with the next chapter in its fundraising growth, and to support the amazing work the charity does.”In March, the VSO said that it would have to shut operations in some countries, and make redundancies due to government cuts in the foreign aid budget.With funding for the charity’s Volunteering for Development scheme due to end imminently and the government cutting funding for overseas aid by 50%, it has said that its international volunteering and Covid-19 response initiative are currently in jeopardy.It is still waiting to hear from the government about the next phase of its grant, which would fund half of its work over the next four years.

Government wages smear campaign against Al Jazeera

first_img Organisation RSF_en TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa December 26, 2019 Find out more November 12, 2019 Find out more Receive email alerts Follow the news on Tunisia Help by sharing this information Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” News Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders condemns a smear campaign against Al Jazeera in which the Tunisian government is using both state-run and pro-government media to accuse the Qatar-based satellite TV station of acting as the mouthpiece President Ben Ali’s opponents.The campaign is focusing above all on Al Jazeera’s coverage of a congress organised by Tunisian exiles in Geneva on 20-21 June in which they urged the president to allow his exiled opponents to return to Tunisia even though many of them face jail sentences because of their political views.“The aim of this government-orchestrated campaign is to discredit Al Jazeera,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Anyone who criticises the authorities is suppressed or shouted down in this country, where little freedom of expression is left. With less than three months to go to presidential and legislative elections, such behaviour is really disturbing.”Pro-government media of all kinds have been participating in this campaign against Al Jazeera for several weeks. Many newspapers and magazines have run articles directly insulting the station, its staff and the Qatari government. The daily Al Hadath printed such an article in today’s issue, following the example of such government-run newspapers as La Presse and Al Hurriya.The pro-government television station Hannibal TV broadcast a talk show on 29 July in which several Tunisian journalists shouted abuse about Al Jazeera’s journalists.Al Jazeera’s Tunisia correspondent, Lotfi Hajji, meanwhile reports that the restrictions on his activity are growing. The cable Internet connection in his home has been cut for more than a month. The police prevented him from meeting with a human rights activist in Tunis on 24 and 26 June. At the same time, the authorities have refused to give him press accreditation for the past five years.The chief goal of the smear campaign seems to be to limit Al Jazeera’s ability to broadcast critical information about Tunisia nationally and internationally.

2014 Home Sales Depend on Strong Job Market

first_img March 20, 2014 1,299 Views Share Save Growing optimism in the housing purchase market stems from faith in a strengthening job market nationwide. Recent snapshots of the national housing economy by Fannie Mae and Zillow cite job growth as a spur for more robust markets, particularly in western states, where new jobs and competition for houses are escalating home prices.Now Freddie Mac has joined the chorus. In its latest Economic and Housing Market Outlook, released Wednesday, the agency expects home sales to grow along with wages this year, despite a still-tough job market in most sectors. Freddie is projecting a 3 percent rise in home sales and a 20 percent rise in new home construction in 2014, which the agency expects to level out to a 5 percent overall growth.Freddie’s latest analysis paints a complex picture, particularly when measured against job figures from 2007, the last time the national job market was considered solid for the entire calendar year. Compared to then, most job sectors, particularly manufacturing and construction, are down. In February, construction employment was 5.9 million, 1.5 million less than December of 2007, according to Freddie.But these sectors are on a steady rise, with construction at about 80 percent of its 2007 peak and manufacturing at about 90 percent, according to the report. Freddie’s numbers bolster Fannie Mae’s February report showing that construction jobs and the number of new houses built are up since the beginning of the year. And these factors are key to a healthier housing market, said Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist at Freddie Mac.”In order to have solid home sales in 2014 we need to see continued improvement in the labor market,” Nothaft said. “Manufacturing and construction are the two sectors that have been slowest to recover. With increased economic growth, these two sectors should start to improve.”Considerable growth, according to Freddie, is happening in mining and office jobs, but particularly in education and health services, which has grown by 2.4 million jobs since 2007. Despite substantial progress, however, the labor market remains below its potential, and unemployment is stubbornly hanging on at 6.7 percent.But these numbers are not as black and white as they may at first seem. While it may look bad that the employment-to-population ratio dropped from 62.7 percent to 58.8 percent in February, annual wages measured that same month grew by 2.5 percent, which is well above consumer price inflation.Also, according to Freddie, about 40 percent of this drop-off was driven by baby boomers who have retired between December 2007 and February 2014. This may open the door for more jobs as boomers continue to leave vacancies in the workforce.”With more jobs, wage growth should continue to accelerate, giving American households much needed income to help sustain the emerging purchase market,” Nothaft said.
