Toulouse miss out on win due to casual conversion from directly in front

first_imgWednesday Mar 9, 2016 Toulouse miss out on win due to casual conversion from directly in front Toulouse had a disastrous end to a Top 14 match for the second week in a row after a late try set them up for a win against Brive, but their goal kicker failed to convert from directly in front of posts. The official’s decision divided fans, but the result stood: 21-21. Kiwi Luke McAlister dived in with just seconds left in the match, taking Toulouse even at 21-21, setting up a simple conversion that would secure the win.Sebastien Bezy stepped up to convert but replacement Jean-Baptiste Pejoine charged down the kick, that was taken from a mere 7 meters out.“I don’t know if it’s better to laugh,” said Toulouse coach Ugo Mola, who thought a simple conversion would follow the vital try. “It could not have been more in front of the posts.”Too close to the posts, Pejoine charged the kick and got a hand up, enough to stop the ball from heading over, switching all the attention to referee Pascal Gauzere. Consulting with his TMO, he felt that what Pejoine had done was legal, so ended the match as a draw.Law 9.B.4 (a) states: All players of the opposing team must retire to their goal line and must not overstep that line until the kicker begins the approach to kick or starts to kick. When the kicker does this, they may charge or jump to prevent a goal but must not be physically supported by other players in these actions. “I was cooler than my teammates,” said Pejoine. “And they asked me to stay focused. I looked at Bezy when he laid the ball, he was not too far back and I said ‘attempting the shot’.Bezy himself said that everyone was disappointed to get that close and not take the win.“It was up to me to take it back a bit to try to get it over. I looked at the ball and when I saw him go (Péjoine), I countered. I did not know if it was on track or not, but it seems to have gone right,” said a dejected Bezy. “When you get that close, everyone’s disappointed.”Do you think the officials got this one correct?Note: low audiocredit: Boucherie Ovalie On a positive note, at least it wasn’t as bad as this kick by Chris Paterson in 2011.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Springboks take series 2-1 but England boosted by good win in the wet

first_imgSunday Jun 24, 2018 Springboks take series 2-1 but England boosted by good win in the wet England coach Eddie Jones is satisfied with their latest showing, beating South Africa 25-10 in Cape Town to pull back a win and avoid a 3-0 whitewash. He was also full of praise for Jonny May, who had another storming match. Trailing 2-0 in the three-Test series, England performed far better in the wet conditions than the hosts, winning up front and on the penalty count. Captain Owen Farrell was sublime off the tee, kicking a perfect seven from seven, including a conversion of May’s excellent try. The try in question came from a pin-point Danny Cipriani kick, showing that ten years after last starting for England, he still has the kind of touches that made him a fan-favourite. It was England’s first Test victory in South Africa in 18 years, so they despite losing the series, they take a big psychological boost from the win, ahead of their next meeting at Twickenham in November.Coach Eddie Jones was so pumped up that he said, in jest, that he would like to arrange another Test between the two sides for next weekend“It’s never a dead rubber. Every Test match is important and England have never won in Newlands before so we’ve created a record, and these guys are always going to be remembered in history so it’s a great thing for them.”Jones was impressed with Jonny May, who scored for the fifth Test in a row.“I thought May was outstanding and all series he’s been the class winger. His kick return, his chasing of kicks, his work off the ball have all been outstanding.“Tom Curry with his third Test in a row, he’s becoming a really good player,” he added, praising the 20-year-old flanker who was a prominent figure at the breakdown. Cipriani deflected praise and gave all the credit for that try to flyer May. “It’s all about instinct and luckily there is one winger in the world who would have scored that and that was Jonny. As he’s shown throughout this series he’s absolutely rapid so you know how much you can push the boundaries with him.”SPRINGBOK REACTION“We were terrible today, in my opinion,” said coach Rassie Erasmus.“We did learn a lot today, we knew we took a gamble and we looked at combinations but the things we got wrong had nothing to do with combinations, they were things that we could control such as discipline and breakdown play.“Sad to say, we didn’t get up for this game. I will have to look at myself and how we prepared – maybe I made mistakes but we’ll have to analyse how the different players reacted to playing a different game in a different competition.”Erasmus added that in the bigger picture, there is still plenty to be happy about.“I really think we can win the World Cup. If we can get it right quickly then we are definitely in with a chance – but we have to manage our talent.“There’s a lot of things we have to balance so that we have fresh, experienced team with a lot of talent when we go to the World Cup.”The Springboks next face Argentina in Durban in the Rugby Championship on 19 August. WATCH: 42-minute post match wrap from Superportcredit: sanzaar/supersportADVERTISEMENT 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.

THAT incredible 1996 length of the field try discussed by the man himself, Christian Cullen

first_imgThursday Apr 30, 2020 THAT incredible 1996 length of the field try discussed by the man himself, Christian Cullen All Blacks legend Christian Cullen has spoken about that try, one of the finest individual efforts ever seen on a professional rugby field. It took place in 1996 against the NSW Waratahs, and surely won’t ever be forgotten. Now, we can hear about it through his own words.ADVERTISEMENTCullen was just 20 when he made his debut for the All Blacks, following a break out season with the Wellington Hurricanes.You may remember that in 2006, just weeks after Rugbydump was started, we threw the try up for debate. We asked if it was the best solo try ever scored. While of course, there have been many sensational individual tries scored over time, for many, this one surely still stands out as being in at least the top three.In that year, 1996, Cullen lit up the Hong Kong Sevens with 18 tries, before going on to score a hattrick on All Blacks debut then four tries against Scotland.WATCH: Christian Cullen ripping through Scotland in 1996Watch the try against the Waratahs here, then him talking about it just belowADVERTISEMENTIn the next video he talks about that moment and in some ways, he plays it down quite a bit, making it sound very simple. And maybe it was for someone of his ability. He was gifted with unbelievable acceleration, balance and the knack of being able to step and glide off both feet.Enjoy hearing about it in his own words, and if anyone you know has never seen this try, it’s definitely one to share!

Courtney Lawes set for 12 weeks out after training ground injury

first_imgWednesday Mar 3, 2021 Courtney Lawes set for 12 weeks out after training ground injury England lock Courtney Lawes faces being out of rugby for 12 weeks after suffering a pectoral injury. The Northampton forward, who has won 87 caps, was hurt during England training last week.ADVERTISEMENTHis Saints team-mate David Ribbans has been called into England’s Guinness Six Nations squad to bolster second-row resources ahead of their remaining games against France and Ireland.Northampton said that Lawes will undergo surgery and he faces an approximate 12-week recovery period.That would sideline him until late May or early June, meaning he will miss the overwhelming majority of Saints’ remaining Gallagher Premiership fixtures.Whether it affects his British and Irish Lions squad selection hopes to face South Africa this summer remains to be seen.WATCH: The very biggest hits of Courtney Lawes’ bruising career at the top“Northampton Saints can confirm that, following consultation between the club’s medical staff and a specialist, Courtney Lawes will undergo surgery on the pectoral injury he sustained in England training last week,” Saints said in a statement.“The 32-year-old lock will require a rehabilitation period of approximately 12 weeks.”England resume their Six Nations campaign against France on Saturday week, having suffered defeats against Scotland and Wales either side of beating Italy.ADVERTISEMENTThe Rugby Football Union said that some of Jones’ 28-man squad “who have received less playing time during the tournament” will be given an opportunity to play for their clubs this weekend.“This will be an individual decision for each player from a performance perspective and is in line with tournament regulations and Covid-19 protocols,” the RFU added.Jones limited his Six Nations squad selection in January to 28 players in an effort to enhance coronavirus safety measures.The RFU struck an agreement with Premiership Rugby and the Rugby Players’ Association that enables the 28 members to remain in camp for the entirety of a Test week.ADVERTISEMENTIt was previously customary for Jones to pick an initial training squad of around 32 players that would arrive in camp on a Monday.This would then be trimmed to a smaller group of 23 to 25 on a Tuesday or Wednesday night, enabling those not in contention to play for England that weekend to turn out for their clubs instead.RELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 14 WEEKS AGO Inquiry into link between sport and long-term… 14 WEEKS AGO Women’s Rugby World Cup to be postponed… 14 WEEKS AGO Rugby Pod divided on THOSE refereeing decisions… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Save this picture!© Harbin KingRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BrickworkPanels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsFretwork Facade PanelConcrete SystemsSwisspearlFiber Cement FormulaThe challenge of the Mayfair Residence was to transform a small, dark, garden-level space into one that is physically and perceptually more expansive and spacious. The project creatively harvests natural light and makes the residence feel larger through fixed views and transformable space. Save this picture!© Harbin KingThe new design amalgamates the collection of small spaces into a continuous, spatial flow. Furniture or partitions define different areas, and sliding doors and temorary panels create temporary configurations as an alternative to the traditional Victorian matrix of rooms connected by a corridor. Save this picture!© Harbin KingThe perimeter party walls – a consequence of the tight, urban condition in central London – are lit by new, continuous skylights. These skylights simultaneously highlight the constraining condition, by creating a reveal between the ceiling and the party walls, and also deploy light to dematerialize these walls and expand the perceived boundary of the interior.Save this picture!© Harbin KingAnother strategy to enlarge the space was to cut long, diagonal views that link interior and exterior spaces. These views perceptually layer spaces, creating an impression that the space is larger and more continuous. Through the alternating arrangement of interior and exterior spaces, the outdoor patios are claimed as perceptually contiguous with the interior, making the interior again feel larger.

This house is built on a 450 square meters lot, located on a former park in Bucharest. In order to preserve the rich vegetation of the park, as well as the general ambiance of the area, the architect and the beneficiary agreed to keep the highest possible number of the existing trees.

Combining the beneficiary’s desire to have a tiles wrapped wooden frame with the idea of having modern lines, led to three slopes roof concept, descending inwardly to a narrow area of a hidden gutter. This approach was acceptable to everyone, while creating generous and spectacular spaces on the second floor, where the indoors ceiling followed the oblique lines of the roof.

This building is based on a simple system of stacking large concrete blocks of 1.0 m x 1.0 m x 1.5m like building blocks on top of one another to make a structure with big undulation like breakwater or wave-dissipating blocks. These large concrete blocks are manufactured at any cement factory in Etajima city, Hiroshima, at a very low price as excess cement is reused and often used for surface of retaining wall or anchors of rafts for cultured oysters. These large concrete blocks are manufactured from leftover concrete whenever there is an order of concrete at cement factory, as there will always be a surplus, and sold as a product instead of discarding. As concrete blocks are manufactured at such a rate, according to the operation situation of the factories, the construction progressed according to the pace of the manufacture of the concrete blocks. The construction of this building was not based on the time schedule, as in standard construction progress, but waited for the stock of large concrete blocks to continue the work; a “slow architecture” perceived ridiculous in modern construction work.Save this picture!© Noriyuki YanoRecommended ProductsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsGlassSolarluxGlass Canopy – SDL AcubisDoorsC.R.

Our client, a dentist by profession, purchased a plot of land in a suburban district close to the center of town in order to enjoy a higher quality of life with his wife and two children. The grid pattern of the cantilevered balcony located at the far corner of the distinctively narrow pathway leading into the flagpole-shaped site projects a subdued facade. In contrast, the large, open interior is of unexpectedly spacious proportions, especially taking into account the fact that this is a two-storey wooden structure.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe residence features both a driveway situated beneath the pilotis of the building, and a built-in garage that can house a Porsche 911. The client can spend a pleasant moment in the compact glass-paned study located at the end of the corridor enjoying the sight of his cherished Porsche, stored in this “showcase”. The central courtyard is also visible from the master bedroom, located at the far end of the garage. The metal grating used for the upper level of the courtyard allows ample morning sunlight to flood the space.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaGoing up the staircase leads to the family room, located just adjacent to the open stairwell. Large windows on both sides of the room bring framed views of the open sky into the interior of the house, while opening the sliding doors to their fullest extent connects the exterior to the interior. The compact, Japanese style tatami room located next to the kitchen can also be used as a guest room. Although all rooms including the bathroom and wet areas are linked to the external courtyard, wooden louvers help to obstruct lines of sight from the outside, ensuring both privacy and a sense of openness. Looking up towards the ceiling reveals a series of roof boards and rafters, each in a different hue, seeming to float within the interior. This wooden section, interposed between the stairwell and loft – designed as a play space for the children – creates a dynamic link between these elements.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSurrounded on all four sides by neighboring residences, this urban flagpole-shaped site seems at first glance to be a difficult environment with many drawbacks.

The size of the facade relative to the size of the plot is reduced by the folds, to provide a multiple facet reading capturing the light differently, and creating a vertical rhythm appropriate in the urban setting in Brussels.Save this picture!© Tim van de VeldeFor the back of the building, the project opts for linking the two adjoining buildings diagonally, using a staircase design. The multiple benefits of this include: orienting the view cross-sectionally towards the courtyard while restricting the face to face with the office building in avenue Louise. It enables to orientate the lighting outlet southwards, to avoid the creation of a blind party wall as a result of developing what can only be called a third façade creating a natural progressive anchorage with the existing buildings.Save this picture!© Tim van de VeldeProject gallerySee allShow lessSchool Classroom / Loïc Picquet ArchitecteSelected Projects’Architecture and City’ ExhibitionEventProject locationAddress:Brussels, BelgiumLocation to be used only as a reference.

The development process of this project focussed on two essential parameters. On the one hand the difficult, long and narrow layout of the plot along with its exposure directly at the municipal road, on the other hand the incorporation of both a residential house and a commercial space into a homogenous building structure.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThrough careful positioning, the building appears discreet and inconspicuous. The elongated shape with single precisely positioned apertures integrates itself in the scenery and townscape in a harmonious yet assertive manner.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterA lavish covered foyer serves as connecting point between the different areas. The commercial area with showroom and office opens up to the municipal road via the entire northern facade.Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanSouth of the showroom, the private rooms extend over two floors. All functions of the living area are arranged on the upper floor. The terrace which extends towards the countryside can be reached via the kitchen und the ample living area.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterOn the covered terrace with its shutters that slide sideways, the path of the sun can be observed throughout the seasons. The bedrooms, a double garage and all spare rooms are situated on the ground floor of the building.The impression of the facade is characterised the homogenous wooden shades of silver fir and the few yet generous window apertures. The reveals are cased with copper sheets. The difference in the material aspects of the interior makes the separation between commercial and living areas apparent.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe commercial area is coated in unobtrusive grey MDF panels that fade into the background and will highlight the products in the showroom. A subtle interaction between oak, fir and sand‐blasted concrete sets the tone for the living area and bedrooms.Project gallerySee allShow lessAV House / BAKSelected ProjectsMorumbi Residence / Drucker Arquitetos AssociadosSelected Projects Share 2013 Year:  CopyAbout this officeAO ArchitektenOfficeFollowMarkus InnauerOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCommercial ArchitectureRetailShowroomBezauRetailHousesAustriaPublished on September 19, 2014Cite: “House with Showroom / ao-architekten + Markus Innauer” 19 Sep 2014.
