Ireland v Wales preview: Where the match will be won and lost

first_imgWith Ireland depleted through injury, can Joe Schmidt’s men make a successful start to the tournament, or can Wales spoil the atmosphere at the Aviva? For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Ireland and Wales’ simmering Celtic rivalry will resurface on Sunday when Warren Gatland and his experienced squad across the Irish Sea to Dublin to take on Joe Schmidt’s depleted Ireland, as the men in green look for the perfect start to their campaign in their quest to become the first side to win three successive Six Nations titles.As ever between these two teams, there are a number of intriguing match-ups that will go a long way towards deciding the final result.Jonathan Sexton vs Dan BiggarThe former undisputed champion of northern hemisphere fly-halves lining up opposite one of the standout performers of the World Cup. The battle between Sexton and Biggar, based on their last six months of rugby, is weighted heavily in favour of the Welshman.Biggar’s kicking at goal and from hand has been exemplary this season, as has been his play on the gain-line, whilst his now trademark kick and receive are a weapon that few, if any, other fly-halves have at their disposal. With Biggar playing like this, it’s no surprise that Ireland have turned to GAA coaches to help them master the aerial game in their preparation for this fixture.No quarter given: Johnny Sexton drives Dan Biggar back into the turf in 2013Unlike Biggar, Sexton has been grasping for form since the RWC. Injuries, including further concussion concerns, and a faulty radar with his tactical kicking have seen Sexton struggle in a misfiring Leinster side. If he can reproduce the form of their Christmas Pro12 encounter, where he outshone Biggar, Ireland can prosper.Same scrum contest, new combatantsThe Welsh front row was bullied at the World Cup but with Samson Lee beginning to return to top form and the in-form Rob Evans drafted in at loosehead, their prospects look much better in the Six Nations. Gethin Jenkins has been an incredible servant to Welsh rugby over the last 14 years but he has fallen foul of Jerome Garces, the French referee, on several occasions. Evans may not yet have the international experience, but he is worthy of a Six Nations start as Wales build towards 2019.Getting the nudge: Both scrums will be confident of outmuscling the other at scrum timeTaking on Lee will be Ireland’s Jack McGrath. The Leinster loosehead has impressed in the province’s topsy-turvy season and has now arguably surpassed Cian Healy as Ireland’s best scrummaging loosehead. Lee and McGrath’s battle will be compelling, but it’s in the match-up between Evans and Nathan White where Wales may be able to exploit a weakness in the Irish front row.With Mike Ross and Marty Moore both injured, Schmidt has been forced to resort to his third-choice tighthead and White’s experience has earned him the nod over Tadhg Furlong. If Evans can keep his feet underneath him and match Lee’s low body height on the other end of the front row, Wales could work a significant advantage at the scrum. Too close to call: There’s not been much to separate Ireland and Wales in recent years center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Battle of the breakdownWith Peter O’Mahony and Sean O’Brien both missing through injury, not to mention the retirement of Paul O’Connell, Ireland’s pack, particularly their makeshift back row, will have a heavy workload keeping up with their Welsh counterparts. CJ Stander is set to make his debut on the blindside and has the work-rate and ball-carrying to excel in the role but arguably lacks the breakdown nous of an O’Mahony or O’Brien, leaving Tommy O’Donnell to shoulder a lot of work on Sunday.Nuisance: Justin Tipuric caused Ireland problems in their last game at the AvivaWales, on the other hand, have a full array of back-row options at their disposal. Gatland has opted for two opensides, picking Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric, with the clear intent of dominating on the deck at the Aviva Stadium. The addition of Tipuric should negate Jenkins’s omission as a breakdown specialist and the resulting loss of turnover potential in the Welsh pack.Tipuric’s inclusion does come at the cost of Dan Lydiate and though Lydiate isn’t the archetypal fetcher, he brings a lot to the contact area. Whilst Warburton and Tipuric feast on turning over opposition ball, Lydiate’s chop tackling is very damaging. Warburton, who is short of game-time, has said he’ll ‘blow a gasket’ and if he’s tiring, what better than a British and Irish Lion to enter the fray.Wales to get off the perfect start?On paper, Wales look to have a great chance of picking up all-important momentum in Dublin. Gatland’s XV boasts plenty of experience, whilst also bolstering problem positions with in-form players such as Evans and Tom James. With three wins from their last six games in Ireland, Wales are also a side that doesn’t get overrawed by the partisan Irish crowd.Picking on form: Tom James has made it back into the Wales squad after a five-year absenceAs for Ireland, expectations have been raised following their last two campaigns, but given the plethora of injuries the squad is currently enduring, expectations of a third successive title may need to be tempered.last_img read more

Protest demands freedom for farmworker

first_imgWW reporter Gene Clancy at rally supportingJosé Pérez.Rochester, N.Y. — On March 9, nearly 200 people braved the aftermath of a violent windstorm to demand freedom and justice for José Coyote Pérez, an immigrant farmworker in the Rochester area. The rally was supported by a number of community groups, including Workers World Party.Two weeks ago Pérez — a dairy worker, community leader and father of four — was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, despite his case being closed in September of last year.Pérez has advocated for immigrant rights and has also been active in the Fight for $15 movement and numerous other issues. Shortly before his arrest, he courageously spoke out at City Hall demanding that the city of Rochester strengthen its status as a sanctuary city.Pérez spoke to the demonstrators via a telephone hook-up with the ICE detention center in Batavia, N.Y. He related how immigration officials treacherously asked him to come and consult with his caseworker, and then arrested him with no warning.His spouse Dolores, a community leader in her own right, also spoke to the gathering, which received many honks of support from passing cars. She is scheduled for a hearing at the detention center in Batavia on March 15, and she and her supporters are fearful that ICE could seize this occasion to arrest her as well. Support rallies are planned at the detention center to defend her and all the unjustly detained immigrants.Ever since the inauguration of Donald Trump, ICE has behaved in an especially sweeping and brutal manner. This has been true in the upstate New York region, which strongly depends on migrant labor for its vast dairy farms, fruit orchards and vineyards.The rally in Rochester concluded with a militant march from the site of the demonstration to a nearby office of the U.S. Border Patrol.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img SHARE Corn, Biofuel Trade Groups, Companies Commend Senators’ Action in Calling for Increased RFS RVO Levels in 2017 Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 24, 2016 On Wednesday, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) along with 17 other senators sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urging them to follow the congressional intent of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) by increasing blending targets under the RFS for 2017.The biofuels community commended the senators for their unwavering support for a strong and robust RFS and for sending a clear message to the EPA.“We want to thank all 19 senators for highlighting the biofuel industry’s concerns with EPA incorrectly citing distribution infrastructure as a factor in setting the 2014-2016 blending targets, and urging the agency to reverse course for the 2017 rule by simply following congressional intent. That is the very heart of why we and other biofuel groups filed a lawsuit in January against EPA.“Getting the RFS back to the statutory levels congress intended is critical in moving our nation forward to energy independence by using cleaner burning, homegrown biofuels, like ethanol, which reduce harmful emissions and our reliance on foreign oil imports. As important, returning to the statutory levels intended by Congress will provide the necessary certainty producers need to move forward with critical business decisions.“Back in the fall of 2015, Administrator McCarthy addressed biofuels stakeholders, saying, ‘EPA is working hard to make sure that the Renewable Fuel Standard program is actually moving towards the levels that Congress intended.’ We are hopeful that the EPA will follow through on their commitment, releasing a rule that reflects this and eliminates the possibility of any distribution waivers.”“We appreciate the steadfast commitment of these senators to ensure the RFS is enacted as originally envisioned and encourage the EPA to heed the recommendations of these senators, to indeed get the RFS ‘back on track’ as the agency has promised.”Click here to review the letter the senators sent to EPA.

Closures continue on I-35

first_imgLinkedin McLeland Tennis Center kicks off celebration with a serve Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Jessica Ranck printThe facelift of Interstate 35 is continuing in the upcoming months.The City of Fort Worth is planning a traffic switch from Highway 121 to Spur 280, near Fourth Street in order to make way for the next phase of construction, according to the City of Fort Worth Newsletter. The next phase will include new southbound general highway lanes.This construction is all part of the North Tarrant Express I-35 project, which began in 2013. The $1.4 billion project includes a 6.5-mile section from north of I-30 to north of I-820, a section ranked 23rd on the state’s most congested roadway list.To allow for the traffic change, the city plans to make nightly closures that began on Oct. 29. These include:A closure of various lanes on southbound 121 and a left lane closure on I-35W. This will begin at 9 p.m. on Oct. 30 and continue through 5 a.m. on Oct. 31.A six-month closure of the I-35 southbound on-ramp from Weatherford St.Street and Gilvin StreetA six-month closure of southbound exit ramp to downtownDespite the added benefit in the future, Fort Worth residents are having trouble moving past the current frustration.One Fort Worth resident said the current traffic affects the route she takes to work.“I try to avoid I-35 at all costs because traffic is already so horrible,” Fort Worth resident Rebecca Burton said. “It’s going to be even more inconvenient while all the construction is taking place, especially right when they change the traffic pattern.”However, Burton said in the long run, the changes will help traffic flow tremendously.This traffic switch is expected to last six months, in time for the crew to complete construction.

The guidance resources that were withdrawn or removed are critical to ensuring nondiscrimination rules are fully and faithfully implemented.”According to the letter, to percent of all youth experiencing homelessness are LGBTQ and one in three transgender people report having experienced homelessness at some point in their lives. A study also found that only 30 percent of shelters were willing to properly accommodate transgender women. This is concerning to the senators because HUD has withdrawn a proposed policy that would require emergency shelters funded by HUD to hang a poster alerting residents of their right to be free from anti-LGBTQ discrimination and a proposed survey evaluating the impact of the LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative.Additionally, the senators explained that HUD has removed four items from their website. A guide instructing HUD grantees on how to ensure equal access for transgender people, a self-assessment tool that allows shelters to evaluate how well they are doing in ensuring compliance with anti-discrimination regulations and best practices, a “decision tree” guiding shelters on how well their engagement, assessment, referral, enrollment, bed assignment, and ongoing service provision practices were providing equal access to LGBTQ people, and training scenarios that help instruct providers on how to best deal with real-life situations that may arise in a manner that ensures equal protection.The letter cited a quote from Carson at a House and Senate hearing when he said, “the only reason that [HUD] would remove anything is to look at it and determine whether it is effective” and that HUD “want[s] to make decisions based on real evidence and facts.” Based on that quote, the senators are asking Carson to, “review the actions and describe precisely what evidence and facts justify these actions, and act promptly to restore resources to HUD’s website guiding providers on how to fulfill their nondiscrimination requirements under law.” Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more
