Lions 2013: 5 Things we learned from Lions v Western Force

first_img Still got it: Brian O’Driscoll shows a turn of pace for his first try against the Western Force in a 69-17 winBy Paul WilliamsA very different win to Hong KongTHE BRITISH and Irish Lions secured an all-too easy win against the Western Force – scoring nine tries in a 69 -17 drubbing. They dominated all of the core areas of the game – securing 57% of possession and 56% territory. The Lions had a satisfactory scrummage and a functioning lineout – running at 88.9% and 75% respectively. However, the win against the Force was very different to the victory against the Barbarians. This was less about set-piece and all about ball carrying. The Lion’s strike runners made colossal yardage in Perth. Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien, Tommy Bowe, George North and Mako Vunipola owned the gainline – it’s also worth mentioning that all of the Lions’ ball carriers benefitted from the exacting handling of Jonathan Sexton.Heaslip and O’Brien made significant gains in the wider channels – particularly when running a line on Sexton’s shoulders. Tommy Bowe and George North powered through the central channels, especially from first phase ball where both regularly chose to turn in off their wings, and Mako Vunipola made a significant contribution as Cian Healy’s replacement. As with the victory in Hong Kong this result needs to be taken in perspective. The Western Force selected a massively weakened squad. Their team selection was straight from the book of ‘Rugby Homeopathy’ – diluted to an unrecognisable state and largely ineffective.Go forward: Mako Vunipola impressed replacing Cian HealyA new backrow. A new approach.The Lions backrow were highly effective against the Western Force – particularly Jamie Heaslip and Sean O’Brien. Heaslip was the Lion’s top ball carrier, he beat the most defenders and made the most clean breaks – he was also the team’s top tackler with 13.  Sean O’Brien also made a major impression on the opposition’s defensive line. O’Brien made a series of powerful, upright carries through the central channels and executed a valuable array of simple passes – a positive of his upright running style is that his hands and body angle are often shaped to pass.The performance of ‘Tuesday’s’ backrow presents Gatland with a difficult decision. The back-rows that featured against the Barbarians and the Western force were equally effective, but very different in execution. Tom Croft, Heaslip and O’Brien are an out and out ball carrying unit, with less emphasis on ground work. Whereas Toby Faletau, Dan Lydiate and Justin Tipuric arguably offered a balance between groundwork, defence and carrying – but less as all-out ball carriers. Picking the Lions’ test backrow will be Gatland’s most difficult decision.Halfpenny, the Lions test kickerLeigh Halfpenny’s kicking display in Perth was truly remarkable – 100% with 11 from 11. Halfpenny’s kicking stats may lead you to believe that he poked a series of simple 25 yards kicks from in front of the posts – he didn’t. Whilst five of his kicks were situated roughly in front of the posts, he faced another six very much from the touchlines – three from the left and three from right. What makes his display even more impressive was the execution of the kicks. There were no sweeping slices or raking hooks that started outside the posts and drifted back in – they were all straight ball flights from the moment the ball left his boot. Some of the Lions’ impressive performances in Perth need to be judged against the quality of the opponents – Halfpenny’s doesn’t. Goal kicking is a one man show, unaffected by the quality of the opposition – at the moment Leigh halfpenny is running that show. Set piece stable but nothing moreNothing will have concerned Warren Gatland about the Lions performance in Perth. But the set piece won’t have pleased him either – particularly the scrum. Whilst the scrum was competent, it was nothing more. You would have expected a front row of Dan Cole, Rory Best and Cian Healy to create more than merely stability in the scrum – particularly against a weakened Western Force front row.Another mild area of concern would have been the occasional miscommunication at the base of the scrum. A fast, clean No 8/No 9 pickup is a valuable weapon in the opposition’s 22, particularly on the blindside where it can create a momentary overlap. Whilst the Lion’s scrum in Perth won’t exactly be keeping Warren Gatland awake at night, it won’t be keeping Robbie Deans awake either.Precision: Leigh Halfpenny kicked a perfect 11 out of 11Western Force made a big mistake.Many have suggested that the Western Force’s decision to select a weakened team has undermined the Lions. In reality the Force have undermined no-one but themselves. Until this week most casual rugby fans in the UK wouldn’t have heard of the Western Force, let alone seen them play – the Western Force struggle to get noticed in their own country.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS This was their chance to show the world who they are and an opportunity to expose their brand to a wider market. Instead they chose to rest the majority of their players for Sunday’s game against the Waratahs – in a competition, which let’s not forget, they lie bottom of their conference, third from bottom in the overall table, won’t qualify for the playoffs and from a competition they can’t be relegated. The next opportunity to play the Lions comes around in twelve years’ time. Talk about missed opportunity…last_img read more

Instead Ganji has been imprisoned again and his wife has still not been given permission to visit him.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We reiterate our support for talks that should logically result in Ganji’s release and, now that Ganji is back in prison, we call on the negotiators to move quickly to reach a solution.”Ganji lost more than 25 kilos during a hunger strike which lasted more than two months and which he ended on 22 August.

Judge lifts gag order on former Minneapolis officers charged in George Floyd’s death

first_imgkali9/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC NEWSA judge has lifted the gag order in the high-profile cases of the four former Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd.The hearing on Tuesday followed a July 9 order from Judge Peter Cahill, barring the defendants — Derek Chauvin, J. Alexander Kueng, Kiernan Lane and Tou Thao — and all attorneys to not speak publicly about the cases. All four defendants’ lawyers filed a motion to lift, or an objection to, the gag order.In vacating the gag order, Cahill said the defendants were persuasive in their argument that they have a right to respond to “pretrial statements to meet negative publicity,” according to pool reports.“The gag order didn’t work,” Cahill added, as the media had been relying on “anonymous sources and other material.”At the hearing, Kueng’s attorney was also seeking the public release of footage from Lane’s body camera in connection with a motion to dismiss Kueng’s charges. Last week, footage from Lane and Kueng’s body cameras became available to view by appointment only, but cannot be distributed. A coalition of media organizations also made a motion to release the footage.Cahill did not decide on the release of the footage Tuesday. He has 90 days to do so, but said that he expects to make it before that deadline.Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd. He remains in custody and appeared in court via video.Lane, Kueng and Thao are all charged with second-degree aiding and abetting felony murder and second-degree aiding and abetting manslaughter. All three are currently out on bail and appeared in person at the downtown Minneapolis courthouse.Audio transcripts of body cameras worn by the former officers were released earlier this month, after Lane’s attorney filed a motion to release them in support of a motion to dismiss charges against him.Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, has argued that the newly released transcripts show there was no probable cause to prove Lane committed a crime.The former officers have not yet formally entered a plea.Cahill has scheduled a trial date for March 8, 2021. The judge has yet to decide if the men will be tried separately or together.The court is currently exploring allowing audio and video coverage of the trial. At Tuesday’s hearing, all defense attorneys were in favor of that, according to pool reports. Cahill had earlier denied cameras at the pretrial hearings.Floyd, a Black man, was arrested on May 25 outside a convenience store in Minneapolis and accused of using counterfeit money to purchase cigarettes, according to police.During the arrests, Chauvin, a 44-year-old white police officer, kneeled on Floyd’s neck for nearly 9 minutes, according to the criminal complaint. Floyd repeatedly called out, “I can’t breathe,” before he lost consciousness, according to a criminal complaint. Floyd was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.Lane, 37, allegedly held Floyd’s legs down while Kueng, 26, allegedly held Floyd’s back as Chauvin allegedly dug his knee into Floyd’s neck, the criminal complaint said. Thao, 34, allegedly watched the entire incident with his hands in his pockets, according to the complaint.Floyd’s arrest was captured on a bystander’s cellphone. The video was posted on Facebook and went viral, sparking protests against police brutality in Minneapolis and across the nation.The four officers were fired from the police department. Two of them, Lane and Kueng, were rookies.Bill Hutchinson, Janel Klein and Ella Torres contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Derek Chauvin’s legal team requests new trial, alleging jury misconduct

first_imgKuzma/iStock(MINNEAPOLIS) — The legal team for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of murderingGeorge Floyd last month, has filed a motion in a Minneapolis court requesting a new trial on multiple grounds, including jury misconduct.In the filing, Chauvin’s attorney says the former officer should have a new trial in the “interests of justice; abuse of discretion that deprived the Defendant of a fair trial; prosecutorial and jury misconduct; errors of law at trial; and a verdict that is contrary to law.”“The jury committed misconduct, felt threatened or intimidated, felt race-based pressure during the proceedings, and/or failed to adhere to instructions during deliberations, in violation of Mr. Chauvin’s constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial,” attorney Eric Nelson writes in the filing.Nelson also claims that the court failed to sequester the jury during the trial, which resulted in their exposure “to prejudicial publicity regarding the trial during the proceedings, as well as jury intimidation and potential fear of retribution amongFloyd’s killing in May 2020, captured on cellphone video that later went viral, sparked protests nationwide. Chauvin could be seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly 10 minutes during an arrest after he allegedly passed a counterfeit $20 bill at a convenience store.John Stiles, deputy chief of staff for Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, said in a statement to ABC News, “The court has already rejected many of these arguments and the State will vigorously oppose them.”Chauvin was found guilty April 20 of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Floyd. He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 25 and faces up to 40 years in prison, though Minnesota sentencing guidelines suggest he’s more likely to receive up to 15 years due to his lack of a prior criminal record.Ellison has asked Judge Peter Cahill to hand down a severe sentence to Chauvin for acting with “particular cruelty” in the death of Floyd, according to a legal briefing filed Friday.Nelson opposed a harsher sentence in a separate filing Friday, arguing that Chauvin was authorized under Minnesota law to “use reasonable force” in the encounter.This is a developing story.
