The Bledisloe Cup rivalry: An All Black’s perspective

first_img Grin of glory: Sean Fitzpatrick holds aloft the Bledisloe Cup LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Eleven years on the front line of the Test arena saw Sean Fitzpatrick captain New Zealand 51 times on the way to 92 caps. Remarkably, 24 of the former hooker’s international appearances came against Australia. Few can articulate trans-Tasman tensions from a more experienced vantage point.This weekend, the Bledisloe Cup is contested in Sydney. Two sides unbeaten thus far in The Rugby Championship lock horns in a compelling clash that falls just 42 days out from the Rugby World Cup.Fitzpatrick will be watching on in his role as a Sky Sports pundit, and told us about what makes this fixture so special.Rugby World: How were you introduced to the rivalry with Australia as a kid growing up in New Zealand?Sean Fitzpatrick: My first memory was of a guy called Greg Cornelson scoring four tries for Australia to beat the All Blacks at Eden Park.I was about 15 or 16 then. It was probably my first appreciation of how good these Aussies could be.RW: And can you remember your first game against Australian opposition?SF: I played in the New Zealand Under 21 team for the curtain-raiser to Australia against the All Blacks at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 1984. That day, the Wallabies beat the All Blacks.Before that, I’d played against Australia a couple of times in schoolboy internationals. In my year, they had Michael Lynagh, David Campese and a lot of guys who went on to play for the senior side.We were always seen as the kids across the ditch, I suppose – the little brother.RW: Dan Carter spoke this week about his early Bledisloe experiences. He said his senior teammates made him appreciate the magnitude of those matches. Was that the same for you?SF: Every two years one team would tour the other country. We would play three Tests and the Bledisloe Cup would go on the line. Every other year there would just be a one-off Test.When I started I was playing for the All Blacks there was Andy Dalton, Gary Knight, John Ashworth and Buck Shelford. John Kirwan had played a few games before I got in too. Those were players we had watched growing up as kids.Flying machine: John Kirwan in full flight against WalesFor them, it was a huge thing and that continued through onto you. Their desire rubs off on you. The rivalry continues with every new player and long may it do so.RW: Your second cap came against Australia at Wellington and they won 13-12…SF: We did. We lost and then we all got dropped. I remember the following Sunday sitting round the radio at my mum and dad’s – in those days the team for the next week was read out at 10 o’clock  in the morning.The announcement said: ‘For the second Test in Dunedin, there has been eight changes.’ I thought: ‘Oh God, that’s quite a lot.’ Then it continued: ‘We’ve replaced the whole forward pack.’It wasn’t that big a setback for me because I was just happy to have played with my childhood heroes. I wasn’t even regularly playing for Auckland at that stage and I learned a lot from it anyway.RW: So is the old cliché true? You played against Australia on 24 occasions and won 16 times, but do you take more from the losses?SF: I think so. I look back to Wellington in 1990. We hadn’t lost for years and, believe it or not, we’d got a bit fat and lazy. We were taking our positions for granted. They beat us 21-9. That was when Phil Kearns gave me the famous two-fingered salute.We learned a lot then, but unfortunately we didn’t learn quickly enough. We lost to them again 12 months later in the World Cup semi-final at Lansdowne Road.Boiling point: Tensions rise during a Bledisloe clash in 1997RW: There must be some better memories, though…SF: At the 1987 World Cup we respected the Australians so much that we were really happy when France beat them in the semi-final. We weren’t sure we’d beat them in the final. Without disrespecting the French, even after we’d won the tournament there was still that hankering at the back of our minds that the Australians were actually a better team than us because they’d beaten us the year before in the Bledisloe Cup series.We played them literally two weeks after the World Cup final at Concord Oval, Sydney in front of about a capacity crowd of 21,000 people. We beat them [30-16] and I managed to get over for two tries, so it has to be one of my happier Bledisloe Cup memories.RW: If you could have brought over one Wallaby into your All Blacks side during your era, who would it have been? SF: Nick Farr-Jones was outstanding in the way he captained the team and in the service he gave to his backs. He was a thorn in our side. Then there was Michael Lynagh. And David Campese, too – if you were picking a World XV, he’d always be close.Leader: Nick Farr-Jones lays down the law to his Australia sideRW: Let’s move onto this weekend, then. Is it fair to say that neither team has quite hit their best yet in The Rugby Championship, despite winning both of their fixtures?SF: Well, I think the All Blacks are looking pretty good. Obviously they’re going to improve because they’re trying things also. They still want to win trophies. They’ve held the Bledisloe since 2003 and this is the tournament decider too.Australia can get a lot better. They’ve got a lot of talent, but whether they can get that right in 40 days or not, I don’t know. They’ve got a really difficult pool to get through at the World Cup.RW: So what does this match mean in the context of World Cup year?SF: This World Cup is going to be about who has the best depth. It will probably be the most difficult World Cup to win. Over The Rugby Championship we’ve seen coaches introduce youngsters to Test matches. That’s the only way you can see how a player will react.For the All Blacks, winning at Ellis Park and exposing the likes of Lima Sopoaga to the intensity of the international arena – you can’t buy that.RW: At hooker, your old position, Stephen Moore and Dane Coles go head-to-head. They are both key figures for their teams in different ways. How do you see that going?SF: Stephen Moore is so important for the Wallabies. He’s no frills – he does his job really well without making too many mistakes. Real, quality leadership is something Australia have lacked over the last few years and it is something they appear to be getting back, on and off the field.Dane Coles is raw, but for me at the moment he is probably the best hooker in world rugby. Saying that, Bismarck du Plessis has really come back into form over the last few weeks. I just think Dane offers so much.Runaway train: Dane Coles on the way to his spectacular try against South AfricaWe always knew he had the running game but there’s the rest of his game now. He’s got bigger, he sticks the scrummage really well and his lineout throwing is good. He just has that x-factor.RW: Some critics have highlighted Dane Coles’ temperament over the past season or so.SF: His temperament has been a weakness that he’s had to work on. We all go through that. I went through a bull-in-a-china shop phase.Dane has got some rough edges but he’s working on that and Steve Hansen has addressed it because he could be a special player. In saying that, Keven Mealamu played one of the best Tests I’ve seen him play in years against Argentina.RW: Same question then. If you were Steve Hansen, which one Wallaby would you bring into the All Blacks set-up?SF: From the current team? (Long pause) You might look at Michael Hooper and David Pocock, I suppose. Other than that I don’t know. I’m not sure who else. If I’m picking a combined All Black-Wallaby team, there wouldn’t be too many Australians. Michael Lynagh might have a view on that.RW: If you “might” bring over Hooper or Pocock, how do you think Richie McCaw will go against them this weekend?center_img SF: (Laughs) I think he’ll go pretty well, actually. He’s phenomenal. He’s been playing international rugby for 15 years now. And he’s still going very well.Sky Sports’ Summer of Rugby continues with Australia vs New Zealand live on Sky Sports 3 from 10.30am BST and also includes England’s warm-up internationals. Sean Fitzpatrick featured in 92 internationals for New Zealand, 24 of his Test caps coming against Australia. The former hooker was in a perfect position to tell Rugby World about the Bledisloe Cup rivalry.last_img read more

Indiana Wheat Crop Facing challenges, but Yields Look Good

first_imgThe Indiana wheat harvest will be late this year. Bill Mullen, agronomist with Seed Consultants, told HAT that the crop looks good overall, “I was in a field near Evansville last week and the crop really looked good, could yield 100 bpa. Then about 5 miles down the road was field that would be lucky to get 75 bpa. So there is a lot of variability out there.” He said the fields that got planted earlier last fall are doing better than some of the later planted fields SHARE The excessive moisture this spring has caused some serious disease issues, according to Mullen, “I am  seeing a lot of  powdery mildew, probably the worst I have ever seen.” He added there is a lot a lot of head scab, especially on the later planted fields, “These are all problems by the wet weather and high humidity.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Wheat Crop Facing challenges, but Yields Look Good Indiana Wheat Crop Facing challenges, but Yields Look Good By Gary Truitt – Jun 18, 2014 Indiana Wheat Crop Facing challenges, but Yields Look Goodcenter_img Facebook Twitter SHARE He estimates most fields will be ready for harvest by July 4, and that will give growers south of I-70 a chance to put in a second crop of soybeans. He recommends growers harvest at 17%-20% moisture and plan on doing some drying. As for northern counties, he says the wheat will be too late to allow planting of a second crop of soybeans. He suggests these growers plant cover crops on the harvested wheat fields.

Some Very Good Hoosier Corn and Beans in the South

first_img Some Very Good Hoosier Corn and Beans in the South Name Sym Last Change Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 SHARE Southern Indiana crop updateA trip across the southern edge Indiana this week revealed some very good corn and soybean fields where those fields are not in low lying areas. On the Larry and Doug Titzer farm just north of Evansville near the junction of Gibson, Warrick, and Vanderburgh counties, Larry told HAT a good, early start was a lifesaver this year.“Southern Indiana just in this area has been a lot better off than the area around us, except for the river bottom farmers. They took a big hit this year, but the higher ground, everybody is really pleased with the crop down here this year.”Like all of Indiana they have had a lot of rain.“We’ve had above average but not near as much as they’ve had north and south of us. In this part of Warrick County we’ve had quite a bit of rain but nothing like several other farms on the eastern part of the county. We have more hilly ground and it didn’t bother us as bad although we had to spray fungicide on one variety of our beans for a lot of frog eye and different things.”Fungicide on beans was a first for the Titzers this year, but they felt they needed the extra protection with high humidity and continual rains. He said if August cooperates the expectation is for a great bean crop. The corn crop is also in good shape right now.“It’s looking good! I farmed all my life and this is one of the better crops in this area. We had a good corn crop last year and it’s looking like this is going to be as good, I think, so far. It’s outstanding, really.”Bill Mullen with Seed Consultants was at their replicated research corn plot on the Titzer farm.“When you think about all the water issues, and there’s a lot of bottom grounds, low lying fields along that stretch of I-64 in southern Indiana, the crops look very good. You don’t see the variability in the fields with corn. It’s pretty uniform, and nice stand out there. The beans are nice and green and healthy. You don’t see any yellow stunted beans. So for a window view in the area that I traveled coming down here, considering all the stresses we’ve had, corn and beans look pretty good.”Check out the HAT video where Mullen reviews the corn and beans on that farm.

‘We won’t rest’: Police release photo of suspect’s truck in ‘unprovoked’ killing of 7-year-old Texas girl

first_imgHarris County Sheriffs Office(HARRIS COUNTY, Texas) — Texas authorities released a surveillance image of a pickup truck the man suspected of killing a 7-year-old girl was driving the day of the apparent “unprovoked” attack.Jazmine Barnes, 7, was killed when the unknown suspect pulled up next to her mother’s car on Sunday morning and began shooting, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.Authorities, who are desperate to find Jazmine’s killer, have released a photo of the suspect’s red pickup truck — among the 1,300 similar vehicles registered in the area.“We won’t rest until this precious child’s killer is brought to justice,” Gonzalez tweeted Monday.Jazmine’s mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, was shot and wounded in the incident, Gonzalez said.Three of Jazmine’s sisters were also in Washington’s car at the time. Jazmine’s younger sister suffered glass-fragment injuries. Her two older sisters weren’t hurt, but they were “shaken” and “devastated,” authorities said.“I need everyone to pull together to get justice for my child,” Washington told ABC Houston station KTRK-TV. “She was innocent. She did not deserve this.”The suspect was described as a bearded white man, possibly in his 40s, wearing a red hoodie and driving a four-door, red or maroon pickup truck, officials said.The sheriff’s office urged anyone with information to call 911, tweet at @CrimeStopHOU or call 713-222-TIPS.

Concern as business sees new high in staff turnover

first_imgThe cost and rate of staff turnover to businesses has hit record levels,according to research. The CIPD survey of 630 HR professionals shows that a quarter of all staffleft their firms last year – the highest figure since the survey began in 1995.The CIPD’s 2001 Labour Turnover Survey also shows that two-thirds oforganisations claim that such a high turnover rate is damaging their business.The average turnover cost of managerial and professional staff is now over£6,000 per employee – a 28 per cent increase on last year. The overall averagecost of turnover per employee is £3,933. The professional service sector is the worst hit. It has an average turnovercost of over £8,300 per employee, with nearly a fifth of companies paying morethan £10,000 to replace staff. Nick Page, rewards adviser at the CIPD and the report’s author, said,”The escalation in the rate of labour turnover is a big concern forbusiness and is clearly impacting on organisational performance. “However, it is encouraging to see employers responding to suchactivity, with one in four planning to introduce work-life balance measures andmany more planning to use exit interviews and change pay and benefit structures.”Surprisingly, the survey shows that public sector workers, such as teachers,are less likely to leave their jobs than their counterparts in the privatesector. Page said, “Clearly the poor performance of the public sector inrecruiting new people and managing turnover is a key reason for its severelabour shortages, rather than people deserting the public sector in droves. Theway we manage labour turnover, therefore, is vitally important”. High turnover should be tackled by offering staff better career and rewardstructures, claims the CIPD.

Sailors Test Navigation Skills aboard HMS Westminster

first_img View post tag: europe Authorities After several weeks working in a simulator, the week at sea was the culmination of their training and the end of a three month course.The students also enjoyed experiencing the gold standard training provided by the Royal Navy.The week at sea involved planning and executing day and night dummy anchorages and pilotage into various UK south coast ports including Portsmouth, Dartmouth, Torbay and Plymouth as well as the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey.They demonstrated their practical application of the International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea – also known as ‘Rules of the Road’ – and took turns in the variety of roles on the Bridge working as a team to safely navigate each route.In addition they also demonstrated blind pilotage techniques – using a radar to supplement their visual plans and to ensure safe passage in conditions of restricted visibility.Portsmouth based HMS Westminster has worked with a number of allied nations on exercises during a recent deployment to the Middle East, as well as in the UK, so welcomed the opportunity to work with international colleagues on this training programme.Throughout their time on board, the students were supervised by their instructors from the Maritime Warfare School at HMS Collingwood as well as having the guidance of Captain Hugh Beard on hand on the Bridge.[mappress]Press Release, August 12, 2014; Image: UK Navy August 12, 2014 Share this article View post tag: test View post tag: Naval View post tag: skills View post tag: HMS Westminstercenter_img Back to overview,Home naval-today Sailors Test Navigation Skills aboard HMS Westminster View post tag: Navy Sailors from Malaysia, Ireland, Singapore, Oman and Kuwait spent a week onboard HMS Westminster testing their navigation skills at sea.
