Worcester Warriors sign Josh Drauniniu

first_imgWorcester Warriors have added even more ammunition to the club’s firepower ahead of next season with the confirmation that ‘try machine’ Josh Drauniniu will move to Sixways from London Welsh.Flying wing Drauniniu, who joined the Exiles from near neighbours Harlequins in May 2010, has proven to be one of the most deadly predators in the RFU Championship this season, scoring 16 tries in 22 games.The former England Sevens wing also scored twice against Warriors during the regular season, including a stunning solo effort from inside his own half in the fixture at Sixways.Born in Suva in Fiji, Drauniniu joined the Royal Navy in 2003 at the age of 17 and saw active service in the Gulf in 2005. Drauniniu was soon introduced to rugby union, having played rugby league and football at school in Fiji, and he made his debut in the annual Army versus Navy match at Twickenham in 2004.Three years later the 25-year-old was signed by Exeter Chiefs, where his pace on the wing caught the eye of the England Sevens selectors. He scored a sensational try on his international debut against Portugal in Dubai in 2008.Drauniniu was named in Rugby Times’ National League One Team of the Season for 2008/09, having scored 16 tries. In his first season he had raced in for 22 tries, and it was that sort of form that alerted Harlequins to take him to the Premiership.His first start for Quins came in a 9-9 draw with London Irish at the Stoop in October 2009, but the highlight of his spell at the club would come at Franklins Gardens three weeks later when he scored two tries as a second half replacement in a 27-16 defeat. “Both Josh and Errie Claassens have really benefitted from the style and positive attitude that London Welsh have adopted throughout this season and hopefully the move to Warriors will see them get even better.” In February 2010 he forced his way back into Ben Ryan’s England Sevens team for the Adelaide and Hong Kong legs of the IRB World Series.Head Coach Richard Hill said: “I first saw Josh playing for the Royal Navy three or four years ago, while he was at Exeter, and he was the standout performer. He was a raw talent and a real try scoring machine that I have tracked ever since.“This year he has had a particularly strong season for London Welsh and has been up with the best of them in terms of scoring tries and has matched the likes of Miles Benjamin and Marcel Garvey. We want players like Miles and Marcel who are try scorers and who can out of nothing explode into life.“When he has played against us this season he has been a real thorn in our side and so we are delighted that he will now pull on a Worcester jersey next season.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Topsy Ojo re-signs with London Irish

first_imgCommenting on his new deal Topsy said: “I have enjoyed every moment of being a London Irish player. The potential we have at the club is massive and I am excited that I can be a part of it over the next few seasons. I still have ambitions to be involved in the England set up and believe London Irish is the best place to make this happen.”London Irish head coach Toby Booth is thrilled to have Topsy Ojo available for another two seasons: “Topsy has been a highly consistent player for this club over a number of seasons now and his commitment to the shirt and to his team mates is second to none. He is a tremendous attacker with ball in hand and an outstanding defender. His try scoring record for the club speaks for itself and we are certainly very pleased that he has decided his immediate future is with London Irish.” Last season Topsy scored ten Aviva Premiership tries to finish third top try scorer in the league and in doing so earned himself the club’s player of the season award.  He was also part of the successful England Saxons side that won the 2011 Churchill Cup.

Glasgow Warriors aiming for Pro12 zenith

first_imgLLANELLI, WALES – FEBRUARY 03: Scarlets players celebrate after Nic Reynolds scored a try during the LV= Cup match between Scarlets and Leicester Tigers at Parc y Scarlets on February 3, 2013 in Llanelli, Wales. (Photo by Harry Engels/Getty Images) Ending the regular season as number one will be a sweet boon for Glasgow and indeed Scottish rugby as a whole. No longer is a Scottish side robbing results all the way into the playoffs.Now they need to secure a route to the final. After that, who knows? Maybe they can slip the Pro12 trophy down their trousers. TAGS: Glasgow Warriors LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img However, Townsend must be credited with the successes.In the years before, Townsend would readily stand in front of a recording device and tell all of all the studies he had read, all the rugby theory he had ingested. He was afforded minutes to waste talking of the trips he had taken to the southern hemisphere to analyse coaching techniques and how to handle cones and bibs differently than the northern hemisphere manuals suggested.Affording Townsend this suited press folk. They knew it was all gold, because the next day invective would flow and the same pages Townsend was on telling of his rugby brain would be spattered with vitriol as fans wailed about Scotland’s dire attack.Townsend stuck with it, though. Like the pub comic waiting for his chance to play the SECC, Toony took the jibes and closed his eyes and hoped.It is working, though. His self-belief was never in question, but now more and more are believing too. He has a tough job maintaining, but finishing at the top of the pile and having a home-semi would certainly earn him some of the respect around Europe that he craves.Plans of their own: Llanelli Scarlets are in the play-off huntThey cannot let up. Scarlets away and Ospreys at home represent two of the toughest fixtures in the league, with both Welsh regions scrapping with each other for a place in the playoffs. Glasgow also have to keep honest, with Ulster just a point behind and having a more straighforward run-in, the wing-clipped Dragons, Treviso and Connacht. Thumbs up: Glasgow Warriors and rapid full-back Stuart Hogg are flying in the RaboDirect Pro12 this seasonBy Alan DymockIT IS worth noting for a moment what Gregor Townsend is achieving at Glasgow Warriors.Considered somewhat of a superfluous appointment in the off-season, nipping into the front of a queue few had even thought would be forming behind  successful head coach Sean Lineen was Gregor Townsend.Mastermind: Gregor TownsendAt first it seemed he had been shoehorned into an outfit with a good playoff pedigree, but heading into the last three games of the RaboDirect Pro12 season things are progressing better than those fans would have expected. The outfit are at the top of the table and with confidence sky high and two-week break before facing the Scarlets, Ospreys and Connacht in the last three fixtures, it is expected that the side will consolidate their position and earn a home semi-final.If ever proof of their quality was needed, the Warriors obliged on Friday night with an obliteration of Munster. Six tries from six different players –including two first-half interception tries and a second-half lung-bursting interception from John Barclay – the team humiliated the likes of Doug Howlett, Ronan O’Gara and Paul O’Connell and sent a message to the rest of the league.Glasgow have evolved this season. The biting tackles are still there, but the defensive shape is more considered. The patterns more layered and nuanced.  The attack smart and, dare we say, effectively.Last season the Warriors played like shoplifters: snatching discounted victories when all they had looked like plumping for was defeat. Now Townsend reigns and the team play more like they are swapping price tags and shrewdly attaching different labels to items, rather than shoving them down their pants and trying not to act too suspicious.Granted, his weapons are more jaggy and likely to extract yelps from rivals than when Lineen was in charge. Sean Lamont still carries like a breeze block on wheels, Nikolo Matawalu has been one of the standout surprises of the season, DTH Van Der Merwe is actually fit and firing and Josh Strauss ducks his head, and in the darkness binds them.last_img read more

Want to lose weight? Here’s how… Part 1

first_imgSnack time Matt Lovell recommends having two to three snacks per day. Here are some on his hit list… Part 1 of England nutritionist Matt Lovell’s step-by-step guide to rugby players losing weight, and looking, feeling and performing great… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Portions and protein“Cut down on the size of your portions,” says Lovell. “If you’re used to having four slices of toast for breakfast, eat three instead, and just half a baked potato instead of a whole one at lunch. You can also reduce the amount of saturated fat in your diet. So cut down on cheese, swap red meat for fish, and trim the rind off.“Eat some protein with every meal. People commonly think that carbohydrates are essential at breakfast time, but you should ditch the toast in favour of home-made burgers and a handful of nuts, an omelette or a chicken salad. Good choices of protein include chicken and turkey, game and lean meats, and fish.Quarter pounder: home made burgers can be a good breakfast option“Watch out for low-fat options, which can be higher in sugar. Low-fat mayonnaise and pesto are good choices, but if you see ‘99% fat free’ on the packet, it often contains a lot of sugar.”Eat when the time is right…“Eat three meals and two to three snacks per day, at no more than three-hourly intervals. Never skip breakfast, and leave two to three hours after dinner before going to bed. This can be hard, so one way round it is to eat more during the day than the evening.“To maximise your fat loss, train when your blood sugar and insulin levels are low, so your body is encouraged to burn calories from fat. This is always early in the morning, when your body has gone all night without food. So set your alarm and brave the early mornings. It’ll be worth it.”Be drink aware “Sports drinks may help your match-day performance but can add an unnecessary amount of carbohydrate to your diet. On training days, swap a sugary sports drink for an electrolyte one or, if you must take a sports drink to help your performance, don’t have it until you’ve done 45 minutes of your workout, to boost your energy. If you can, wait until you’ve finished the session before drinking it.” Click on the image (left) for more.Animal, vegetable or mineral? “Watch out for deficiencies in the following areas. ”Too much omega 6 in relation to omega 3 has many negative effects, including insulin resistance, and can cause illnesses such as asthma and hay fever in children, or Alzheimer’s, heart disease and diabetes in adults. “So don’t cook with vegetable oil – use olive oil instead – and eat plenty of oily fish, pumpkin, linseed and walnuts.https://twitter.com/mattlovell/status/479201475751444480″Tests show that 30% of rugby players are deficient in minerals, 90% don’t eat enough oily fish and 70% don’t have enough vitamins despite having good diets. These deficiencies will result in a lack of performance, and supplements can help.”For example, low levels of chromium, magnesium and zinc make it hard for the body to regulate sugar consumption. All refined foods are low in these minerals, but supplements can help make up the shortfall.“Remember that some fats are good for you, such as nuts and seeds, olives and olive oil, oily fish and a moderate amount of butter. Bad fats include vegetable oil, pastry, biscuits, croissants, crisps, margarine and dry-roasted peanuts.” Sweet tooth: follow Matt Lovell’s advice about what to eat instead of these! Pumpkin seeds and an appleA pot of cottage cheese and Ryvita thinsMackerel paté on oatcakesCelery sticks and peanut butterHummus and carrot sticksA latté, a bottle of water and some nutsA protein shake or barClick here for Part 2, in which Matt Lovell discusses fruit and veg, super foods, how to avoid pitfalls and the foods you should never, ever eat!last_img read more

Rally round to support Max Levene

first_imgSupport the man: Max Levene.Truro School set up the trust to help Max with the slogan “Remember the boy, support the man” and thousands have since been raised by them and the local rugby community. Levene beat the odds to return to school and take his A Levels and he is currently finishing a Masters degree in development economics at the University of East Anglia. He says: “The trust has been brilliant, allowing me to do lots of things I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise, and I think it’s an honour that people still think about me and the accident.” Despite his life-changing injury, Levene does not support recent calls for tackling to be banned in schools rugby. “I feel it would completely kill the game at junior level. I don’t think people should be forced to play contact rugby but we chose to play it and were coached to tackle properly.”To sponsor Parlby and Blackwell in the Mongol Rally and help them achieve their fundraising target for the Max Levene Trust, Back Up and Cool Earth, go to bataarlatethannever.com Breathtaking: The Mongol Rally passes through incredible terrain. (Photo: the Adventurists) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Mike Parlby and Ed Blackwell will hit the road in a 0.8 litre Daewoo Matiz – all Mongol Rally cars must be under one litre – and they’ll set off from the UK on 16 July, hoping to reach the finish in Siberia within their five-week target or by the 12 September deadline.They need to raise a minimum of £1,000 to take part – money which will then be split between the organisers’ favoured rainforest charity, Cool Earth, and Parlby and Blackwell’s chosen charities, the Max Levene Trust, and Back Up, which helps people in the UK who have spinal injuries.The duo were playing for Kelly College against Truro School in 2009 when 17-year-old Truro player Levene suffered his spinal injury. “I was on the other pitch but Ed was in his game. When it happened, both games stopped and everyone was aware of what was going on,” recalls Parlby. An intrepid duo of rugby-mad fans aim to take part in the 10,000-mile Mongol Rally this summer to raise cash for a young man, Max Levene, who was paralysed in an accident during a schools rugby match.last_img read more

Hilton Foundation for work in rural Zambia.  This grant will support the incorporation of early childhood development into the integrated community development program currently run by the organization’s partner, the Zambia Anglican Council (ZAC).Episcopal Relief & Development will raise funds to match the full amount of the grant, enabling the project to reach an estimated 4,000 families in areas with a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS.The prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS in Zambia is among the highest in the world, leaving hundreds of thousands of children orphaned or vulnerable.  Parents who are HIV-positive may succumb to the disease, or be too sick to provide sufficient care for their children.  This responsibility often falls to a relative or a sibling, who may lack the resources or knowledge to support the child’s health, growth and development.The program will work with 4,000 families affected by HIV/AIDS, addressing the interrelated needs of children under five and empowering their parents or caregivers to support their healthy development.  The program will incorporate learnings from the development of The Essential Package: A Framework for Action for Young Children and Their Caregivers Affected by HIV and AIDS, a unique initiative spearheaded by CARE, Save the Children, the Consultative Group on Early Childhood Care and Development and other stakeholders, with funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.“One of our primary goals is to facilitate and strengthen the capacity of community-based organizations to deliver early childhood development services for young children and their caregivers who are affected by HIV/AIDS,” stated Dr. Shaheen Kassim-Lakha, Director, International Programs at the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.  “We are very pleased to partner with Episcopal Relief & Development and the Zambia Anglican Council because of their deep local knowledge and wide network of volunteers.”Episcopal Relief & Development and ZAC will integrate activities into their rural program that support children’s cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development.  Caregivers will also participate in agriculture and livelihood development to improve their families’ nutrition and increase family income.Grace Phiri Mazala, National Programs Director for ZAC, explains the importance of focusing on caregivers as well as children: “In the long run, because of the trainings, the caregivers will play an important role.  They are the points of early contact to a child, and they will serve as gateways to other early childhood services.  They will become the trusted sources of information for families, and will give critical guidance.”The goal of the current phase of the project is to develop a model of family-centered care and caregiver capacity-building that could be scaled up and replicated in other rural areas in Africa with high HIV/AIDS prevalence rates.  Community development staff will work with teams of trained community volunteers to carry out activities and encourage the adoption of healthy behaviors, according to proven methods developed by Episcopal Relief & Development’s NetsforLife® malaria prevention partnership, which is active in Zambia and 16 other African countries.Episcopal Relief & Development and ZAC’s program was of particular interest to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation because it will expand existing activities to meet the holistic needs of young children affected by HIV/AIDS.  By leveraging the Church’s long-term presence in rural communities, Episcopal Relief & Development is able to catalyze lasting change and truly sustainable development and contribute to a rural model for community-centered care.“The first years of life are the most important, in terms of a child’s physical and mental development, so this new intervention has the potential to make a profound impact on the lives of thousands of children and their caregivers,” said Rob Radtke, President of Episcopal Relief & Development.  “Receiving the recognition and support of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation is an incredible blessing, for which we are all deeply grateful.  It highlights the quality and necessity of the work being done in partnership with ZAC.”The early childhood development component will include monthly play groups for children, accompanied by their guardians, for creative play, stimulation, and social interaction.  Caregivers will participate in workshops on parenting education and skills, child nutrition and health.  Home visits by child development workers will help caregivers put into practice what they’ve learned and provide assistance with solving problems.  Community health workers will monitor the children’s growth and development and follow up with caregivers on water, sanitation, and hygiene as well as basic disease prevention and treatment particularly related to HIV/AIDS and malaria.“Our vision is for communities with healthy, thriving children, empowered caregivers, and communities equipped to support the vulnerable in their midst,” said Abagail Nelson, Senior Vice President for Programs at Episcopal Relief & Development.  “We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and to be a part of this vital and expanding initiative.”Episcopal Relief & Development is the international relief and development agency of the Episcopal Church and an independent 501(c)(3) organization. The agency takes its mandate from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25.  Its programs work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Episcopal Relief & Development works closely with the worldwide Church and ecumenical partners to help rebuild after disasters and to empower local communities to find lasting solutions that fight poverty, hunger and disease, including HIV/AIDS and malaria.

New attacks in central Nigeria worry church leaders

first_img Featured Events Youth Minister Lorton, VA Anglican Communion [Ecumenical News International] Tensions have heightened in central Nigeria following the killing on Aug. 8 of four people near a mosque, a day after 20 worshipers in a church in the Okene area of Kogi state, were shot dead.In the mosque attack, news reports said the armed men came in a van chanting Islamic songs before they attacked some Muslims who were holding tafsir (a Ramadan lecture) at the Central Mosque in Okene. Two of the dead were soldiers who were on surveillance duty.In the church incident, armed men entered Deeper Life Bible Church on Aug. 7 and fired at worshipers. Church leaders have pleaded for increased security in places of worship.Anglican Archbishop Nicholas Okoh of Nigeria urged the government to protection all Nigerians. He condemned the attacks, called for improved strategies to fight the violence and urged Christians to desist from acts that would worsen the situation.“At the rate we are going, the country is drifting fast into anarchy,” the Nigerian newspaper Punch quoted Okoh as saying on Aug. 8. It is the government’s responsibility to provide defense for the people, he added.Following the attacks, the government ordered a dusk to dawn curfew in the state, while the country’s inspector general has also ordered a 24 hour surveillance of all places of worship, according to reports.No group has claimed responsibility for the latest attacks, although the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for attacks on churches and government installations in northern states. The latest attacks have occurred south of the areas that have experienced violence previously.

Photo: St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne[Anglican Communion News Service] The first all-girl cathedral choir in the southern hemisphere has been launched at St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne, Australia. The choir is made up from 18 girls from Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School and gave a debut performance in the cathedral last week.“Many cathedrals in Australia have mixed choirs,” the Very Revd Dr Andreas Loewe, the Dean of Melbourne, said. “We are privileged in adding an entirely new choir to our traditional choir of boys and men, which has been leading choral weekday and Sunday services since 1888.“The Cathedral believes that women and girls should be given the same opportunities for leadership and ministry in our cathedral as men and boys: whether they aspire to be archbishops or choristers.”The cathedral chose Lowther Hall as its partners after what it describes as “a rigorous 18-month selection process.” The school has a strong track record as a leading educator in arts and music.“This is a significant milestone for our school and an appropriate recognition of girls and women within the Anglican Church,” Lowther Hall principal Elisabeth Rhodes said. “We are honoured to have been selected. It is a wonderful opportunity for the girls and will enhance Lowther Hall’s extensive range of musical offerings for our students.”The music director at St Paul’s, Philip Nicholls, says the 18 girls will sing with a small group of experienced women who will act as mentors and role models. He envisages that the girls’ choir and male choir will sing on different days, and combine at important festivals.
