Rugby World End-of-Season Awards 2015

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The ‘giant awakens’ award: USAWho’d have thunk it? The star-spangled banner raining out at England’s home of rugby, Twickenham. Well, when Olympic Gold is up for grabs as it is in 2016 in Rio, the United States start to get their house in order. And so it proved. They were sensational at the London Sevens, with speedsters Perry Baker and Carlin Isles getting the crowd off their feet and Madison Hughes and Danny Barrett adding the grunt. Coached by the hugely experienced Mike Friday, don’t bet against the feat being repeated in Rio. Could the next decade see rugby taking off Stateside? Don’t bet against it.The ‘Let’s have a re-think’ award: TMO’sAs rugby cocks a snook at football and embraces technology, it seems we’ve reached out limit. It seems every decision is pored over by the TMOs. We’re not saying there’s no place for them, but surely there’s a less time-consuming way to get a decision. We’re in danger of turning rugby – traditionally a free-flowing sport – into American football with all the stoppages. Indeed, fames are now tipping over the two hour mark and we run a danger of turning off the fans, who will happily spend their money elsewhere.Coach of the Year: Gregor TownsendWhile the plaudits have rightly rained down on Ireland coach Joe Schmidt, for an almost faultless year, winning a second consecutive Championship since 1949 and going on a 10-game winning run, instead we’re going to give our gong to Gregor Townsend. The subject of opprobrium in the Andy Robinson era as a backs coach who couldn’t fire a Scottish backline, Townsend went back to Glasgow to work on his craft. Over the last three years, Glasgow have turned into a side to be respected and admired in the Pro12. The defining moment came last weekend when they tore a Munster side apart with admirable derring-do, the catalyst Leone Nakarawa – the offloading Fijian. Townsend should take huge credit for giving Glasgow a cutting edge and even more importantly, a hard edge. One imagines he won’t be short of suitors when his Glasgow tenure comes to an end.https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL6PsOY3TERzRLunOdFmx71VB4ezpgjtFZ&v=mjMho7lsb2s‘Marketing campaign of the year’ award: GuinnessSometimes advertisers just get it right. This year, those Guinness ads, dripping with nostalgia and sentiment perfectly captured the values of rugby in a series of beautifully crafted adverts to celebrate the Six Nations. Featuring Jonny Wilkinson, Shane Williams, Munster’s triumph over the All Blacks and posthumously Bill McClaren. They have over 5m hits between them. Well done, Guinness. You nailed it.Player of the Year: George FordThe big one. Many players have legitimate claims for this award. Paul O’Connell has been a totem at the heart of an Ireland pack in his 35th year, Liam Williams has played with bravery and skill to cut like a rapier through defensive lines all season and Jonny Gray has tackled, carried, hit breakdowns and inspired, yet it is George Ford who has become integral changing how England play. He has turned them into a side easy-on-the-eye that crossed the whitewash 18 times during the Six Nations, through his clever lines of running and increasingly mature, varied kicking game. It’s been absorbing to watch his progression and he could yet prove to be one of the stars of the World Cup.On the front foot: George Ford has added an attacking dimension to England’s playFinally…’the gone but not forgotten’ award: The motley crew belowDeep breath, a sad farewell to…Lee Byrne, Tom May, Ugo Monye, Chris Bell, Mark Cueto, Bakkies Botha, Ali Williams, Nathan Hines, Shane Jennings, Ian Gough, Al Kellock, Duncan Jones, Carl Hayman, Gordon D’Arcy and Brad Thorn. If we’ve left anyone out, we apologise. Warriors all, good luck in your retirement Dogs of war: Toulon boast a glut of Test greats who know how win things So, the Northern Hemisphere season has come to a thrilling conclusion leaving rugby fans counting down the days to the World Cup (okay, The Rugby Championship starts in six odd weeks). Anyway, it’s only right, to hand out some gongs. So, by no popular demand, whatsoever, here are the…RUGBY WORLD END-OF-SEASON AWARDSThe ‘Expendables’ award: ToulonIf you’re in your mid-thirties, a respected world great and looking for some sunshine and a boost to your bank balance, best get your agent to speak to Toulon. Ali Williams, Bakkies Botha, Juan Smith, Jonny Wilkinson and Matt Giteau have all profited on the Cote d’Azur. Don’t take this as a slight however, far from it. Mourad Boudjellal signs winners and their European Cup treble shows there is no lack of team spirit. It’s no wonder Samu Manoa, Ma’a Nonu and reportedly Paul O’Connell are heading there en masse next season. Who could bet against a fourth consecutive title? Incroyable.Uplifting story: Chris Henry has battled back after a heart operation to wear the green of Ireland‘Heartwarming comeback’ award: Chris HenryLast year Matthew Rees recovered from testicular cancer to return after six months. This year, it was the turn of Ulster No 7 Chris Henry, who was forced to take a break from rugby after a mini-stroke in November. He’d been taken ill on the morning of the Ireland v South Africa game and a small hole was found in his heart. Henry returned against the Cardiff Blues in late March and with a strong end to the season was included in the Ireland side to face the Barbarians. There was a heartfelt applause, then, when he crashed over for a try. Who wouldn’t back him to make the 31-man squad for the Rugby World Cup? Heroic.‘Most improved player’ award: Split decisionA tough, tough call. In the Test arena, Connacht’s Robbie Henshaw came of age with a superb tournament, his crowning moment the mid-flight catch and grounding of the ball against England. Another come on at a gallop was Sale’s 6ft 7in No 8 Josh Beaumont. Playing for Fylde only six months ago, it would have taken a hard-hearted cynic not to enjoy the sight of father Bill looking down proudly as he took his England bow against the Barbarians, scoring a try in the process. In Wales, James Davies, younger brother of injured Welsh Lion Jonathan, was majestic for the Scarlets; a whirling dervish at the breakdown and with an appreciation of wide-open spaces from his Sevens days, he must have been a whisker away from Wales’ World Cup squad. Finn Russell is only 22, and after a contentious yellow card against Wales, showed a robust character and no little skill to show the Scotland No 10 shirt is in safe hands. He helped Glasgow to a first Pro12 title and along with Sam Hidalgo-Clyne hints at a hugely exciting future for Scotland at half-back.The ‘rogue’ award Yoann HugetAlways a hotly contested category, Manu Tuilagi, Dylan Hartley and Danny Cipriani have all suffered moments that have led to fans face-palming in recent weeks but Yoann Huget, the Toulouse and France wing, has had a year that leaves him peerless. A hugely talented player, he has nevertheless engaged ‘in simulation’ (read diving) against Bath, and far more seriously stamping on the face of Bordeaux lock Andre Marais. The French press have cried foul, talking of an agenda from ‘la presse Anglaise’ but the simple fact is it was a horrendously reckless piece of play. He should be held to account.The ‘jaw-dropping award: The Clermont threeAurelien Rougerie, Benjamin Kayser and Julien Pierre are all sizeable units. All over 6ft and 16st, and all revered in their home town of Clermont, the burly trio were on the end of a frightening 3am attack by an armed gang with machetes, shovels and wait for it, a sabre. All three were hospitalised, with Pierre, the most seriously injured. Arrests were subsequently made. It’s just a shame Davit Zirakashvili, Vincent Debaty and Jamie Cudmore weren’t on hand to level up the numbers! Cowardly doesn’t cover it.Deeply concerning: Mike Brown was concussed against Italy and has shown maturity in giving himself time out of the game‘Biggest impact’ award: ConcussionConcussion has dominated the agenda. With players ballooning in size, collisions are increasingly brutal. Rory Lamont, Shontayne Hape, Andy Hazell and only last week, Ashley Smith have all retired prematurely after repeated concussions. This season has been a tipping point with high-profile concussions to George North and Mike Brown, meaning scrutiny is higher than ever. Progress is being made across the board – last weekend at the Premiership two players were withdrawn after a Head Injury Assessment (HIA). As North succinctly said, ‘you only get one head’.The ‘please make it stop’ award: London WelshIn January we asked legitimately whether London Welsh were the worst Premiership side ever. A mini-furore erupted at the audacity of what was actually a factual question. Welsh ended up losing all 30 games in their season, shipping a record 1021 points in the Premiership. It led to Justin Burnell being relieved of his duties in March to be replaced by Rowland Phillips. They were poorly prepared and funded for the Premiership and were an embarrassment to an otherwise competitive competition. We can only hope the wounds incurred aren’t too deep and London Welsh, a proud club with a rich heritage, can stabilise and push for the Premiership again.Not again: Try as they might, Bristol can’t make the final leap up to the Premiership…yetThe ‘try, try and try again’ award: Bristol RFCUnlike London Welsh, Bristol RFC are seemingly one side ready and primed for the Premiership; Hugely experienced coaching team. Tick. Multi-millionnaire backer. Tick. Fanbase that would make some Premiership side cast envious eyes in their direction. Tick. On the field, they have four Lions among their ranks and some exciting youngsters, like Matthew Morgan, the Championship Player of the Year. The problem is, they’ve stumbled when it comes to the play-off Final. This year was the closest yet as they lost by a point, with the last kick to Worcester Warriors. How much longer can the wait go on? It’s been a season of intoxicating highs and soul-destroying lows in rugby, but it’s time to try and make sense of it all and hand out some awardslast_img read more

The Division Bench of Of Chief Justice Ravi Ranjan and Justice Sujit Narayan Prasad has accordingly directed the Advocate Welfare Fund Trustee Committee of the state to convene a meeting at the earliest and devise a suitable scheme for disbursement of the same. “The meeting of Trustee Committee would be convened and a decision would be taken considering the interest of the members of the Bar,” the Court ordered. The order has been passed in a batch of PILs, raising concerns over the distraught condition of lawyers, whose daily earnings have been affected due to suspension of regular court work. The bench ordered the Trustee Committee to convene a meeting expeditiously after the State Bar Council informed the Court that the said amount was to be disbursed as per the scheme prepared by this Committee. The court has also given time to the state Government for enacting the requisite Rules for implementation of the Jharkhand Advocates’ Clerks Fund Act, 2018, notified for the welfare of Advocates’ clerks. The matter has accordingly been adjourned till May 7. Pertinently, the Advocate Welfare Fund Trustee Committee was constituted under the Jharkhand Advocates’ Welfare Fund Act, 2012. While the Chairman of the Committee informed the court that its income-expenditure balance was in deficit however, the Committee had been taking steps for payment of sale of welfare stamp, considering the emergent situation. Letters for the same have already been addressed to the Treasury Officers of all the districts for transferring the amount at the earliest. Amongst other stakeholders, the Bar Council of India apprised the Court that it had decided to transfer Rs. 45 Lakh for the welfare of needy Advocates registered in the Jharkhand State Bar Council. The main PIL was filed, seeking a direction upon the State Government to disburse a fund of Rs. 50 Crores forthwith to meet the financial aid to the practicing Advocates and their registered Clerks. However, after the Petitioner admitted that there is no “legal vested right” to seek a command upon the State Government to provide a fund, the High Court moved on to hear the abovementioned stakeholders.

The PIL, filed through Advocates Shashwat Anand and Devesh Saxena, is aimed at preventing animal cruelty by strengthening animal protection laws in the country. “Lately, a couple of cases of cruelty towards animals have come to light in the past few months which have raised questions as to how humans have absolutely no respect for animals’ lives and how can they can be absolutely devoid of sympathy. Such incidents have further enraged many and made one ponder as to whether the laws in existence are sufficient enough to protect animals from possible abuse and cruelty,” the plea states in the backdrop of Kerala’s Elephant Tragedy, sale of dog-meat in Nagaland, etc. It has therefore been urged before the Court to declare all the Citizens of India as “persons in loco parentis” for the protection of animals from cruelty and abuse and to ensure their welfare. Reliance has been placed on the decisions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court in Karnail Singh & Ors v. State of Haryana, and of the Uttarakhand High Court in Narayan Dutt Bhatt v. Union of India & Ors., whereby all animals in the animal kingdom were recognized, as legal entities and all citizens of these states were declared persons in loco parentis (in place of a parent). The Petitioner has also drawn the Court’s attention towards dearth of government data or any public record to track cases of Animal Abuse and Animal Cruelty in India. “The NCRB reports, for reasons beyond one’s imagination, choose not to publish specific data related to crimes against Animals under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. Also, NCRB reports do not contain any separate records of statistical data related to crime against Animals under Section 377, 428, 429 of IPC. There is absolutely no mention of any statistical data related to Animal Cruelty in Annual Reports of Ministry of Environment or any other ministry and the only relevant data available with Ministry of Environment,” the Petitioner has pointed out. On this note it has been prayed that the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) be directed to report and publish data and statistics relating to animal cruelty/ crimes against animals, including cases reported and convictions ordered thereupon, under various penal statues in the Annual NCRB reports. Lastly, the Petitioner has expressed grave concerns over probable “sadistic evolution” of perpetrators of animal cruelty, and it is contended that they are very likely to harm humans as well. “Acts of cruelty to animals are often indicative of a deep mental disturbance and often, animal abusers move on to harming humans. A psychological disorder known as “Zoosadism”, where a person derives pleasure from inflicting cruelty to animals, clearly establishes the link between animal abuse and more violent conduct. … In such circumstances, laws that impose a fine of Rupees 50 won’t even teach the offender a lesson, let alone prevent others from acting the same way. Such light laws are not only harmful to our society and our animals, it has certain legal implications as well,” the Petitioner asserted. It has therefore urged the Court to: direct all the States and Union Territories to take appropriate measures/ steps for the mandatory registration of FIRs under relevant penal provisions contained in the IPC and the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals Act, 1960, whenever any incident of animal cruelty surfaces or comes to light on social media or otherwise;direct the Central Government to form an Independent Committee monitored by the Supreme Court, consisting of members from all the relevant departments/ ministries of the Government, which can review the entire legal framework and find pitfalls in the existing legal framework in order to curb the menace of Cruelty against Animals, so as to enable rehauling of the existing legislative mechanisms;issue and frame guidelines in order to fill the gaping legal lacunae with an objective to ensure and implement effective and purposeful legal framework for the protection and welfare of Animals in India, in exercise of its inherent power under Article 142 of the Constitution, in the interest of justice and fairness.

Company-wide policy raises the profile of HR

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Embedding leadership strategies within the corporate structure of companies can raise the profile and credibility of HR departments, according to a revolutionary company pilot scheme.The technology corporation Britax – which takes on contracts as diverse as child safety buggies and refurbishing aircraft – has been developing a company-wide leadership policy over the past six months in association with the charitable foundation the Leadership Trust.It has been revealed that the policy involving ideas such as intranet-based e-learning and training selected staff with board members raised the profile of the company’s HR department.Group HR director Gill Stormont said, “In some companies, the HR department may not always be taken entirely seriously.“But this new project meant that we were given enormous recognition in the board room and at all other levels of the company.”Stormont said the initiative had already made an impact on the company’s balance books. She added, “It is early days yet, but it certainly has improved relationships with our customers.”Project coordinator Simon Hollington, of the Leadership Trust, said the fledgling scheme is improving relations with company management by encouraging staff to manage upwards.He said, “It can be very lonely at the top. But we found when staff began to tell board members what their problems were, it made life easier for them.“Relations between management and their employees suddenly began to improve because each knew what the other was going through.”Britax consists of 34 companies and employs 7,500 people across the UK, Europe, US and Australia and initially adopted the strategy to define its corporate identity. Hollington said, “The company is totally committed. We drew up a plan and then found ourselves having to rewrite it a few weeks later after our feedback sessions. It’s been a learning experience for us as well.”The Leadership Trust is based in Ross-On-Wye and is committed to promoting leadership skills within society as a whole.
