Analysis: Jamie Heaslip shows his class against Wales

first_img…and more fine ball presentation keeps the phase-play going:Dirty workTipuric has carved a deserved reputation as a breakdown menace for the Ospreys. That said, Ireland shut him down on Saturday.Moving onto the less glamorous aspects of Heaslip’s shift, we begin with a canny block on the Wales openside:As debutant Ross Moriarty spills in contact, the ball is up for grabs. Heaslip and Tipuric converge:Although the ball bounces clear of them, the Irishman continues on his path, blocking his rival……so Donnacha Ryan can spin it out:These are the one-percenters that Schmidt relishes. The Kiwi coach is meticulous, so he would have loved this tackle on Dan Baker from a lost restart:Wrapping up his opposite man, Heaslip stops any chance of an offload:Falling on the Welsh side of the ruck, he makes it impossible for Wales to recycle quickly……before rolling away just early enough not to concede a penalty:This approach did not always come off. Heaslip shipped a penalty just after half-time for something very similar following a tackle on Taulupe Faletau:However, he made up for it minutes later with this hit on Hallam Amos to cap off a dogged kick-chase:Put onside by provincial ally McFadden, Heaslip charges upfield with his head down……and makes contact on Amos with his shoulder, driving the legs through:Clear-out and counterThe underrated Jordi Murphy enjoyed another industrious shift, but Heaslip also added massive graft and precision to Ireland’s breakdown performance either side of the ball.To illustrate this point, we will look at two rucks. At this first one, a trademark spot-hit from Hibbard has put the visitors under pressure:As the Wales hooker fells Tommy O’Donnell, there is a sniff of a turnover. Aaron Jarvis hones in on the tackle area as Heaslip realises he must react:Jarvis is closer and wins the race to the ball, but Heaslip gets into a strong position……and dumps the tighthead behind the breakdown:Though Ireland were stopped behind the gain-line, they retain possession. Wales had a tougher time finding fluidity, thanks largely to moments such as this:The best pests are opportunistic. Hovering on the blindside, Heaslip realises that only wing Eli Walker is protecting the ball:He powers through in a counter-ruck amid the presence of Tipuric and gets a boot to the ball, forcing it into touch:Heaslip proved a thorn in Warren Gatland’s side until he left the field.Link man supremeSpecial players often elevate those around them. Heaslip is certainly a facilitator is this regard. A delicious inside pass here sent Strauss into a scurrying break:Heaslip dextriously punishes Hibbard for getting disconnected and creating a dogleg:Another well-judged pass fed Mike Ross after Heaslip had confounded Wales at another ruck:Pouncing when he sees the ball has rolled out of the ruck – and benefitting from a marginal Jackson call, it must be said – Heaslip pumps his legs through the tackle of Lloyd Williams. He only releases Ross when it is certain the pass is on:Heaslip left the field on the back of this try from Jones:Typically, he had an under-the-radar responsibility. By running at the line and offering himself to Simon Zebo, he ties in Tyler Morgan. That way, the long miss-pass finds its target unmarked:Heaslip was effervescent and diligent. O’Connell and Jonathan Sexton are widely regarded as the indispensable figures in the Ireland set-up. Their No 8 is extremely close to that bracket too. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The list of honours compiled by Jamie Heaslip reads like a comprehensive catalogue. Now over a decade into his professional career, the 31 year-old No 8 boasts three Pro12 titles with Leinster as well as a trio of Heineken Cups and the 2013 Challenge Cup.At international level there is another distinguished treble. Heaslip can reflect on three Six Nations victories with Ireland including a Grand Slam in 2009. That summer saw his first British and Irish Lions tour, four years before he headed to Australia and helped secure a series success over the Wallabies.On Saturday in Cardiff, one of Joe Schmidt‘s central henchmen seemed eager on adding a Rugby World Cup to his glittering horde. Against an undercooked and inexperienced Wales, Heaslip – handed the captaincy in Paul O’Connell‘s absence – personified an Ireland performance of vastly superior accuracy and intelligence.Here is a run-down of how he bossed the warm-up match before heading to the bench on 54 minutes.Set-piece skillA rock-solid set-piece platform would have been just one encouraging aspect Schmidt took away from the Millennium Stadium. Watch Heaslip rise to take this early lineout  from Richardt Strauss:Quick ball off the top of a line out usually provides a great attacking opportunity, and so it proves here as Darren Cave careers over the gain-line.Generally, a throw to the middle or to the tail is needed to manufacture this situation. However, Heaslip’s slick transfer infield to scrum-half Eoin Reddan means Ireland can manoeuvre a midfield carry from a low-risk throw to the front:Wales are probably expecting a maul after Heaslip’s take, but a rapid transfer means Paddy Jackson has plenty of time on receiving the ball:Of course, Ireland can exercise another option with a short throw to Heaslip. Their lineout maul was devastating during the Six Nations, and looked very strong in this match too:Heaslip’s take enables a robust, structured drive that finishes up well over the Wales 22:At the scrum, where Ireland really dominated, Heaslip’s expertise at the base helped reinforce his side’s superiority.In this instance, as a shove from the men in green splinters Wales, Heaslip calmly controls the ball:Referee Glen Jackson orders a re-set and the hosts hold firmer this time:Heaslip still has an important role. Look at his left foot slip back to block Mike Phillips as Reddan clears the ball:This is the sort of  subtle intervention that defines Heaslip. And there were plenty more across his display.Clever carryingAn athletic specimen weighing 110 kilograms, you would expect Heaslip to win plenty of collisions. Indeed, he steam-rollered James Hook early on:This seems like a brutish, route one play. If we take a closer look though, we can see how Ireland seek out fly-half Hook in the defensive line with a flat pass from Jackson:The result was quick ruck ball. Not long afterwards, Wales were stretched to breaking point.Heaslip was the scorer. Fittingly, he had a say in the turnover that led to the try as well:The No 8 dives on the ball as Scott Williams spills……before slicing over a couple of phases later:Rewinding slightly, it is telling to track Heaslip as Jackson darts onto the blindside:Trusting his colleagues to resource the ruck, he curves left around the corner and calls for Fergus McFadden to stay wide in order outflank Justin Tipuric – the only Wales defender to remain on the right-hand side of the breakdown:Tipuric must step in to cover the trio of forwards following Heaslip around the corner and Reddan’s pass produces an easy walk-in:Support and decision-makingFor all the noise Wales have made about their gruesome fitness schedule, it was Ireland who appeared livelier. Heaslip epitomised that. This break was perhaps his most eye-catching moment:Full-back Felix Jones sparks everything by waltzing through a non-existent Wales kick-chase, but Heaslip demonstrates his awareness very quickly.He begins sprinting even before Jones goes past him, pre-empting the Munsterman’s path and supporting accordingly:Such anticipation is matched by composure. After receiving the ball and sprinting into the open, it would be easy for Heaslip to panic. Instead, he clocks that Wales have scrambled well……and takes the ball into contact rather than releasing a low-percentage pass. The upshot, with Heaslip’s textbook ball presentation, is continuity:Heaslip never stopped working and never stopped thinking. Follow his path once more during this attack:After taking a line out at the front and feeding Reddan – as highlighted earlier in this piece – Heaslip sweeps round to join the attack. He offers himself as an option off Jackson’s left shoulder……then, unperturbed as the fly-half selects another runner, attends the ruck to help retain possession:Wales were generally outplayed around the breakdown – as we will get onto later. Even so, they made life difficult for Reddan here…until Heaslip intervened:Taking this short sequence step-by-step, we can see that Tipuric is causing trouble as Heaslip moves away from the previous ruck:Attempting to move the ball away from the danger zone as quickly as possible, Heaslip picks the ball up and trundles narrow to the breakdown:He beats guard Richard Hibbard… During a comfortable win over Wales, Jamie Heaslip put in an exceptional display that underlined his importance to Ireland’s Rugby World Cup campaign.

BBC’s Kinyarwanda broadcasts suspended indefinitely

first_imgNews Reports RwandaAfrica Help by sharing this information RwandaAfrica The Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA) ordered the suspension of the BBC’s radio broadcasts in the Kinyarwanda language for an indefinite period on 25 October while it investigates the “genocide denial” accusations that have been made against the British broadcaster.The Rwanda Media Commission (RMC) has called the suspension illegal because the RURA did not comply with the requirement to consult the RMC first.“The fact that the RURA, a technical agency that is also responsible for sanitation, transport and postal services, took it upon itself to act as arbiter over freedom of information clearly shows this ban’s political dimension,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“Unable to manipulate the RMC, the government turned to a more docile agency. This measure is disproportionate and lacks any logical basis. Why suspend the BBC’s Kinyarwanda radio broadcasts when it was a BBC TV documentary in English that angered the government?“It should be recalled that the BBC is one of the few independent media to broadcast in the local language. Suspending its Kinyarwanda programming obstructs much of the Rwandan public’s access to news and information. We call for the immediate restoration of the BBC’s Kinyarwanda broadcasts in order to guarantee access to independent and diversified information.”——————————————————————————————–24.10.2014 – Rwandan parliament calls for BBC to be bannedThe parliamentary motion was prompted by a controversial documentary about the 1994 genocideThe Rwandan parliament passed a resolution on 22 October calling on the government to ban the BBC and bring “genocide denial” charges against the presenter and producer of a controversial TV documentary about the 1994 Rwandan genocide that the BBC broadcast in early October.The vote came a few days after President Paul Kagame himself accused the BBC of “denying the genocide” of Rwanda’s Tutsi minority by members of the Hutu majority.“This parliamentary resolution is not surprising inasmuch as the Kagame government allows the political opposition no room to exist in Rwanda,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“It is extremely worrying that the BBC, one of the few independent media that manages to be seen or heard within Rwanda, is in the process of being banned. We call on the government to implement the democratic principles it so readily professes in international forums and to let the media express themselves freely.”Members of student organizations consisting mainly of genocide survivors staged demonstrations outside the BBC’s Kigali bureau and parliament a few hours before the resolution’s adoption and handed in a memorandum calling on the government to rescind the BBC’s licence to broadcast in Rwanda. They also demanded a formal BBC apology to the Rwandan people and the entire world.Entitled “Rwanda, The Untold Story,” the documentary caused a storm by interviewing US-based researchers who, with the help of maps, argued that the number of Hutus killed in the genocide was much higher than generally recognized. The Rwandan government declined the BBC’s requests to be interviewed for the documentary.According to the United Nations, an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered from April to July 1994.The Kagame government has a history of refusing to comment on the human rights situation and imposing extreme censorship on freedom of information.At least five journalists have fled the country this year because of persecution, and several were arrested and threatened by the police before and after ceremonies in April marking the 20th anniversary of the genocide. Good Morning Rwanda, Flash FM’s popular phone-in programme, was banned in June. The US State Department condemned all of these developments.An official denial of the claims made in the documentary was posted on the Rwandan government website but is no longer available online. In 2009, the Rwandan government suspended the BBC’s radio broadcasts in Kynyarwanda because of a programme about the genocide that was also described at the time as revisionist.Any formal reference to ethnicity is punishable by imprisonment on a charge of promoting “divisions.” Over the years, the term “Rwandan genocide” has gradually been replaced by “genocide of the Tutsis,” thereby pre-empting any questioning of the official history.Rwanda is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.More information about freedom of information in Rwanda BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist April 6, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa News to go furthercenter_img Follow the news on Rwanda RSF_en Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent News October 24, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 BBC’s Kinyarwanda broadcasts suspended indefinitely November 27, 2020 Find out more Organisation Receive email alerts February 13, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Troika goes but austerity stays

It’s very opaque, in many ways.”Included in the changes are some changes to the Volcker Rule, originally aimed at preventing banks from trading for their own profit with depositors’ money and other funds. The revised rule will ease restrictions on bank investments.Banks complained that the Volcker Rule’s provision which forced banks to prove that their short-term trades, were allowable under the law was burdensome and restricted legitimate trading, and is now scrapped.Martin J. Gruenberg, a member of the FDIC board of directors, dissented against the rule, saying “the Volcker Rule will no longer impose a meaningful constraint on speculative proprietary trading by banks and bank holding companies benefiting from the public safety net.”NYT reports that representatives from each of the biggest banks have met multiple times with Fed officials to talk about the stress capital buffer, a measure that would condense and streamline capital requirements, according to two people familiar with the matter. Each bank also used a public comment period in 2018 to send letters detailing specific suggestions for changes the Fed could make when it enacts the new standard.“We’re comfortable with the capital regime that we’re operating under,” John Shrewsberry, Wells Fargo’s CFO, said on a call with reporters last month.According to Fed research, bank capital should be in a range of 13% to more than 26% of a bank’s assets, and capital ratios at big banks stood at about 14% at the end of last year. According to Neel Kashkari, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, “the biggest banks need substantially more capital,” noting that changes that could weaken requirements are “concerning.” Home / Daily Dose / What’s Best for Banks?
