Last minute win for the Force from Cameron Shepherd

first_imgThursday Mar 15, 2007 Last minute win for the Force from Cameron Shepherd A week after the Sharks did the impossible to score with time up against the Crusaders at Kingspark, the Force pulled off another of this year’s amazing escapes to beat the Hurricanes 18-17 in the dying seconds. It was the first win at home for the Force in two seasons of the competition, finally giving back to the Perth faithful who turn up every week win or lose. Cameron Shepherd, who is having a fantastic tournament, did it for the Force with a finish in the corner after a courageous fight back by the men from Perth. After the try was scored, the conversion was still needed to win it, and Shepherd didn’t dissapoint.Emulating Ruan Pienaar the week before, he ignored the pressure of the big moment and kept his head. A great moment for the Force, and any neutral rugby fan.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Josh Lewsey’s try saving tackle on Jean De Villiers

first_imgTuesday Apr 10, 2007 Josh Lewsey’s try saving tackle on Jean De Villiers In the first test against England in Nov 2006, The Springboks’ Jean De Villiers got yet another trademark intercept, but he unfortunately wasn’t able to capitalise on it.ADVERTISEMENTInstead of finishing the try by stepping inside or flicking the ball to Ndungane, he decided to back himself, but was shown up excellently by the covering Josh Lewsey.Brilliant try saving tackle, but to be honest, I think Lewsey would have been shocked De Villiers stuffed it up so badly. Bad mistake. Great result for the English.Postponed coach Andy Robinson getting fired, for a week or so anyway.

‘Freak’ try from Rugby League Centenary Test

first_imgMonday May 12, 2008 ‘Freak’ try from Rugby League Centenary Test Rugby League clips on Rugbydump are a thing of rarity, purely because we’re Rugby Union based. But, when the hit or the skill is of the level as was seen on the weekend, we think it’s only fair to share it with the rugby fraternity who expect, demand, and appreciate the type of raw brilliance that was shown by Greg Inglis for Australia. In the Centenary Test between Australia and New Zealand in Sydney, Inglis fumbled a precise Johnathan Thurston cross kick, then leapt and hurled the ball back over his own head while in mid-air as he sailed over the dead ball line. The ball landed in the waiting hands of Mark Gasnier, who touched down with centimetres to spare, leaving even the Melbourne Storm magician amazed with his feat. “We didn’t know if it was a try or not,” Inglis recalled. “I just thought ‘how the hell did I do that. “It’s just one of those things you’ve got to have a crack at. I should have caught the ball in the first place.” The lucky recipient of the pass said he knew immediately that it was a try, even if the video referee was called to adjudicate. “I just treated it like a slips catch,” Gasnier said. “I asked Greg if he’d landed and he said he didn’t so I knew it was a try. “It’s probably the easiest try I’ve ever scored.” The conversion kick was pretty damn special too. Australia, in their Centenary celebration kit, won 28-12 .

Chris Rossouw knocks himself out with this no arms tackle

first_imgWednesday Jul 30, 2008 Chris Rossouw knocks himself out with this no arms tackle Former Western Province, Stormers, and more recently Toulon flyhalf Chris Rossouw is now at the Cheetahs, plying his trade in the Currie Cup in South Africa.Rossouw, brother of former Springbok wing Pieter Rossouw, had a mixed experience in France, mainly serving as backup for Andrew Mehrtens.He’s back in SA now though, and while playing for the defending champions the Cheetahs on the weekend, he somehow managed to knock himself out while attempting this tackle on the Valke’s rising star flyhalf Len Olivier.Rossouw was actually penalised for the tackle, which can only be described as clumsy. In fact, it looked like he almost tried to run through Olivier, forgetting to get his arms up, resulting in the headclash.Peculiar technique, and he paid for it, leaving the field and playing no further part in the match. The Cheetahs weren’t effected though, coming out comfortable victors 55-14.

Exclusive interview with Toulon’s Ross Skeate

first_imgFriday Sep 18, 2009 Exclusive interview with Toulon’s Ross Skeate Former Western Province and Stormers lock Ross Skeate has been at Toulon in the South of France since last season, and is going strong with the club, having recently scored his first try in the Top 14. We caught up with Ross ahead of their upcoming clash with Toulouse, to talk about bad refs, blood scandals, and big hits. So Ross, firstly – Cape Town or the South of France, and why? I would have to say both and for different reasons. In so many ways they resemble each other but in so many others they are literally worlds apart. Cape Town for the Mountain, my family, my friends, my comfort zone and being in Africa again. The South Of France for the experience, the culture and language, the travelling and a new adventure. What is your earliest rugby memory? My earliest memories must be that of playing…as a youngster I found it more interesting playing than watching! Never could understand why my pops wanted to watch the game or any sport related event instead of my cartoons! But playing barefoot as a little boy on the fields of SACS Junior School must be it. Oranges at half time and no understanding or memory of who or what we were really doing, just having fun. Should French referees be breathalysed before matches? HaHa! I can relate to that statement! But seriously, I do think referees should be analysed and held more accountable for any decisions made on the field. I think one of the problems at the moment is that French referees are as a majority not professional. Thus if such referees were under the same stringent controls through a referee governing body as they are when they are professional, it would be far more beneficial for the refs themselves and the french game. We’ve heard even the staunchest of Afrikaaners speaking eloquent French. How is yours coming along, and how much of a requirement is it considering you have a resident translator? Mine’s actually coming along nicely, but not as quickly as I wish it was. Unfortunately having so many foreigners in the side this year as well as last put me in a comfort zone linguistically, and I know had I found myself in a club that was strictly more french the proverbial deep end would be my best tutor. But I am learning quickly and my comprehension of what is said I am pretty happy with. Speaking is another story…and its made more frustrating when those freaking Argies arrive and pick the language up in a few months! You were a highly respected player in South Africa. Do you still have Springbok ambitions? I do, but when I found myself sitting on the bench for consecutive Super 14 season, for whatever reasons, I knew that I needed to make a change in my current career path and take control of things… Being here in France and deciding to make the move I felt as though I did and now am in control of what happens during the course of things, as opposed to the place I found myself when I was counting the splinters. I think most of all I want to play Internationally… and maybe that means playing for another country and becoming re-nationalized, but that is something I truly do not have the answers to now… I am aware that if I wanted to play for the Boks, that would mean a move back to South Africa and playing for a franchise there. If i decide that is the best for me and what I want out of rugby and life thats what I shall do. At the moment though, I am happy to see out this current season with Toulon. Which do you think is the better rugby – Super 14 or Top 14, and how do they differ from a player’s perspective? I must admit I think that the Super 14 is a more attractive open game and hence more entertaining to watch, but I dont think it is as passionately followed as the Top 14 here in France. From a playing perspective I find the game here in the Top 14 obviously slower and also less taxing as far as the amount of phases that each team puts the ball through. But the physicality and emphasis on forward play is more significant here. Although with the Super 14 and the speed of the game the impact and collision points are often (although less frequent) more painful. You share a changeroom with Jonny Wilkinson, Joe Van Niekerk, Felipe Contepomi, and loads of other foreign stars. It must be quite an experience? I think you should be asking them what it’s like sharing a changing room with Ross Skeate!!! But it is a strange experience and a great one. Never did I envision myself playing with so many big names from so many different backgrounds and countries as I do now. Playing in Toulon has opened my mind and experiences to rugby and life in Europe and the UK more than ever before (as well as Fiji, Japan, Tonga, Samoa and Argentina!). And having watched many of these guys playing for their countries from a distance and now getting to know them has been fun, but not something totally alien to me having played with a number of other big names in the Stormers and Barbarians. What’s your take on the recent Bloodgate scandal at Harlequins? Is it a first time you’ve heard of that type of thing, or is it a more common occurrence than we realise? I assume it has happened more than one would think, and I do feel sympathy for all those involved having pictured myself in their shoes. I remember once trying to get punched so I could go off for a blood bin as I was a substitute and had just torn a ligament in my foot. Sadly no one in the Cheetahs team that day was obliging enough and I hobbled my way through the rest of the game. Mostly I am glad that the player involved, who originally seemed the scapegoat, has since recieved a lighter punishment. I also think that it has led to a flurry of news related traffic about the alleged fighting, thuggery and general bad stuff in the game… particularily in the UK. It seemed it was all about Football before and now its rugby’s turn. Have you had words with Tana Umaga yet about South Africa’s Tri Nations win? I did have a little dig at him the other day, especially because he’s always so quick to point out any All Black victory! And not too long ago Joe Van Niekerk and Tana took a bet over the first Bok All Balck game of the Tri-Nations. Tana was obviously on the losing side that day and had to serve Joe breakfast. I enjoyed it as much as I think he did. In your 50th Currie Cup match against Griquas last year, you got smashed on a cpl of occasions, as featured here on RD . Is the Kimberley turf as hard as it looks? I cant believe you are bringing that up let alone showing it!!! I guess Murphy’s law is that on my 50th the whole Griquas side would target me, and Heinrich Stride would be the deliverer. They were pretty good hits I must admit, especially the first, but in my defence Francois Louw did pass me a ball with a terrible little lob on it, backed by the sun which obviously was in my eyes at the time!!!! But the worst part about hits like that is not that they hurt, is that they are far more embarrassing and remain so for a long time to come… did i thank you again for bringing it up? And I think that what makes the Griquas turf harder than it is already, is how Griquas play the way they do at home. Are any of the Toulon guys aware of what we do here on RD? Does Big Joe for example know that we featured a clip of him getting welcomed’ to the Top 14 by Henry Tuilagi last year? Haha! I don’t know if he does, but he will tomorrow when I tell him! But yeah allot of the boys know about the site and some even refer to it pretty often. The Toulon home game against Stade Francais last year, and the fight that ensued with ‘Storming’ Norman Jordaan coming out the winner with three knockouts, has been talked about on few occasions. What does Ross Skeate do to unwind and forget about rugby for a bit? I know for everyone its pretty different, but for me I read a bit, listen to a lot of music, smoke a Shisha (not very professional I know) and basically chill. My favourite place to unwind is in the Jacuzzi of my new apartment in Toulon – coffee, Shisha and some music to help ‘take the edge off’. How stoked were you at getting your first try for Toulon a week ago? (featured below) Pretty happy I gotta admit. Just the week before I had been thinking how I hadn’t crossed the try line for the club yet and was aching for it. Only problem is having lost like we did in the final minutes… it really took the shine off. And finally, Toulon play Toulouse this weekend – is revenge on the cards? I have no doubt it has been a topic in the Toulouse team room this week, and we are expecting a full strength Toulouse side and one hell of a match! I can’t wait! Ross has his own personal website which he updates with all sorts of behind the scenes info, photos, and stories about life at Toulon.

Benito Masilevu’s huge side-steps give Brive late victory over Toulouse

first_imgWednesday Sep 10, 2014 Benito Masilevu’s huge side-steps give Brive late victory over Toulouse Benito Masilevu has extended his contract at Brive just days after scoring a stunning try that helped them beat Toulouse 26-19 in their Top 14 clash. He showed up young star Gael Fickou with some outrageous stepping before scoring the match winner.The late try gave Brive a well deserved home victory over the giant club, after they had led 16-6 at halftime. Scores were tied late in the game but the former Fiji Sevens flyer came on as a replacement late in the match, and lit up the turf with virtually his first touch of the ball.He got it from a standing start but produced two huge steps to get the better of France centre Fickou, who couldn’t contain last season’s second highest try scorer on the 7’s World Series circuit. He actually scored 27 tries over the nine-leg tournament, so knows his way to the whitewash.The 24-year-old joined Brive on a two year deal in June last year but this week signed a contract extension, meaning he’ll be at the club for another two years on top of that, taking him to 2017.He said he was very happy to continue the adventure, and would give everything on the field to be able to thank the entire sports staff, who trusted him. “Brive gave me the opportunity to evolve in the Top 14, the best league in the world,” Masilevu said.Vice President in charge of sport, Max Mamers said: “We are proud to welcome to our group for the next two seasons Benito Masilevu. The Fijian magician will worry opposing defenses with his speed and deadly pressure.”Fickou didn’t have time to be worried, as before he could think about it, Masilevu was past him with his well balanced out then in then out again. Absolutely deadly one-on-one finishing.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Ugly fight erupts between French and British navies in annual clash

first_imgThursday Mar 24, 2016 Ugly fight erupts between French and British navies in annual clash The Six Nations is over and England took the honours in the final match, beating France on Saturday, but last night in Toulon there was a beating of a different kind going on as both countries’ respective navies went toe to toe, and its safe to say there was no love lost.The clash between the British Royal Navy and France’s Marine Nationale played host to arguably one of the worst all-in brawls we’ve seen for a long time.Everyone was involved, including those from the substitutes bench, as chaos broke out in the ‘fight’ for the Babcock International Trophy.It was in 2005 that the two sides started playing for the trophy, and despite the fighting, the match ended with the hosts winning it 28-6, squaring up the overall head to head at 6-6.Picking players to send off would have been no easy task, but there were two red cards shown (a prop from each side) and then some time was taken for the referee to cool everyone down.After the game the two sides posed for a photo, and spirits were high despite the all in fracas (Royal Navy were in grey, and the French navy in blue).“It kicked off a bit during the match, but they calmed down and the match was finished. They all went for a drink afterwards and there were no hard feelings,” said a Royal Navy source.video credit: ZACHAYUS1ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Rassie Erasmus teaching Springbok centre how to tackle ‘legally’ will either make you laugh or wind you up

first_imgTuesday Nov 6, 2018 Rassie Erasmus teaching Springbok centre how to tackle ‘legally’ will either make you laugh or wind you up While fans have clearly been divided over the legality of the Owen Farrell tackle at the end of the England vs South Africa Test at Twickenham, Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus has kept a sense of humour about it, with yet another light-hearted dig at World Rugby.ADVERTISEMENTThe 12-11 loss for the Springboks came about through a number of poor errors and a late missed penalty, but Farrell’s huge hit with time up might have allowed them to sneak out of jail, should Handre Pollard have slotted the resultant penalty.Referee Angus Gardner made a fairly snappy decision when referring to the TMO, ruling that he saw enough of an attempt to wrap the arms.Coach Erasmus said in the post match press conference that if that way of tackling is legal, then that’s great and he must teach his players.“If it was legal, we should just do it because it’s very effective,” Erasmus said.“To tackle a guy like Andre Esterhuizen like that and stop him in his tracks, that’s unbelievable.. So, we just have to try and practice that.”He was of course saying it tongue in cheek but there was also some seriousness to it as to allow tackles like that sets a fairly dangerous precedent.ADVERTISEMENTTrue to his word, this video of Erasmus coaching Esterhuizen how to tackle with the shoulder has been ‘leaked’, with the amusing footage being spread on social media today.It’s clearly some light-hearted banter, but some have been completely wound up by it, while others get the comedic aspect of it.Former England flyhalf Andy Goode meanwhile has called for World Rugby to issue a statement so that fans, players and officials can get some clarity on the issue.“It’s not a high tackle, he’s made no contact with the head and there’s no way it’s a red card offence. As a result, he can’t be cited for it,” Goode said in his Rugbypass column.“It is a penalty, though, and I think it should have been a yellow card for no arms in the tackle as well. I’m sure a penalty would’ve been awarded if it was in any other minute of the game but the clock was in the red and that does complicate matters, even though it shouldn’t.On the specifics of the tackle, Goode says that the ‘he made an attempt to wrap’ argument is irrelevant.“Farrell makes contact with the right shoulder and there is absolutely no attempt to grasp with that arm. There was enough of an attempt to wrap with the left arm but that isn’t the shoulder that’s making contact, so that is an important detail.“His right arm is tensed and is by his side and he’s swinging his shoulder into the tackle. Had the right arm been up and more horizontal, ready to wrap around the ball carrier, it might have been ok but to me it’s a no arms tackle and a swinging shoulder and it should’ve been a penalty for sure and nowadays a yellow card to boot.“Rassie Erasmus suggested after the game that if that was a legal challenge, maybe we should all be doing it and I think that’s exactly what World Rugby don’t want.“I think they have to say something. The referees are meeting in Cardiff this week and it’s vital for everyone’s understanding of the game now that we hear their verdict.” Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies , See it to Believe it Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene

first_imgArchDaily Projects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/91370/ad-classics-gamble-house-greene-greene Clipboard Houses AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene Year:  “COPY” Copy+ 17Houses•Pasadena, United States United Statescenter_img Architects: Greene & Greene Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” 1908 Photographs:  Alexander Vertikoff, Mark FiennesText description provided by the architects. The essential nature of architecture by Greene & Greene begins with intense attention to detail and craftsmanship, as their bungalows mark the height of the American Arts and Crafts style. The brothers were inspired by the concept of total design, or gesamtkunstwerk, which was stressed in the German-designed rooms at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase International Exposition in St. Louis. When they met David and Mary Gamble, they already had developed a list of rich couples who commissioned them to design their houses, with generous budgets and relatively free reign.Save this picture!© Alexander Vertikoff”An architect is a builder employing the process of art,” Charles Greene once wrote. This is proven to be their governing belief, not only in the final product but also throughout the process. The brothers were known to veer from the initial blueprints, showing that they were enthralled with transition and process, the blueprints as a point of departure rather than a set of instructions.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe drawings of the house were completed in February of 1908, the site ground-broken in March, and ten months later the house was completed and the first custom-built piece of furniture delivered. The family moved in immediately, and the house and all of it’s specially-designed furnishings were officially finished in 1910.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe early projects of Greene and Greene reflected the traditional tastes of their clients, but in time they achieved recognition for developing the California bungalow to a high art, as well as for creating houses with the quality of fine furniture. The Gamble House represented an American-style which sat amidst an abundance of imitations and interpretations of classical European buildings, the influence for many mansions at the time. It was designed to be very suitable for the southern California climate, with a sleeping porch and beautiful transition spaces from the inside to outdoor patios, a garden and a pond.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tim Street-PorterThe developed style of Greene and Greene is very distinguishable in the design world, as their Japanese inspirations are incorporated into stain glass windows, details carved and formed with wood, joinery and joint pieces traditional to architecture in Japan. The emphasis on the horizontal line, the use of modular units, a taste for the asymmetrical, the absence of clutter, extensive areas of unpainted wood, a preponderance of natural and subdued colors, a close relationship with the outdoors were all key elements of Japanese architecture that are incorporated into the Craftsman style.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tim Street-PorterThe strong ties to the outdoors are brought to the interior as well, through flowers and trees which are engraved in the windows, doors and lanterns. Indigenous Japanese shapes appear throughout the house, in the contour of the dining room table, the cloud lift in the transom bar of each window, the recessed handles on drawers and the ebony frame of the master bedroom furniture.Save this picture!© Mark FiennesThere are also European inspired aspects to the design; the cantilevered second story over the front terrace, window boxes and shingles on exterior walls, the long roof lines and Swiss-like exterior elevation south of the front door, the living room inglenook, and the Gothic fireplace in the den.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe original patrons lived in the house until death, and it was continually passed down through the Gamble family until 1966, when it was almost sold to a family who intended to paint the interior teak and mahogany woodwork white. They immediately realized the artistic and architectural importance of this home and deeded it to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California Department of Architecture. Tours are offered now, as the Gamble House is both a museum and a National Historic Landmark.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffProject gallerySee allShow lessWestern Red Cedar Architectural Design Awards WinnersArticlesThe Atmosphere of Paris Cafes / Nicolas Dorval-Bory + Raphaël BétillonArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/91370/ad-classics-gamble-house-greene-greene Clipboard Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffWritten by Megan Sveiven Share AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & GreeneSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene CopyAbout this officeGreene & GreeneOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesPasadenaHousesUnited StatesPublished on November 24, 2010Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene” 24 Nov 2010.
