Wales tested in Rome but tough it out to beat Italy

first_imgSunday Feb 27, 2011 Wales tested in Rome but tough it out to beat Italy Italy gave Wales somewhat of a Six Nations scare in Rome yesterday, but the visitors were able to subdue them enough and show their experience to take a 24-16 win at the Stadio Flaminio.Wales scored in the first half through Morgan Stoddart, as well as scoring a great try that was finished off by flanker Sam Warburton after a nice Shane Williams run. Stephen Jones was back at flyhalf, kicking 11 points while James Hook was in the center, but managed to slot a late drop-goal.Gonzalo Canale and captain Sergio Parisse both scored for Italy, but four missed attempts at goal proved costly as they struggled to stay in touch.Wales coach Warren Gatland insists that his side still have a chance of winning the championship. “It still puts us in contention for the championship, we’ve got a big game against Ireland at home and then France,” said Gatland.“It’s a tough competition and it’s about building momentum and confidence. We’ve had two tough wins away in the last two games and next we’re at the Millennium Stadium at home and we want to get a result from our next performance.“Today’s was a lot tougher (than Scotland). Italy are a very big, physical side. Perhaps because of the criticism of Italy in their first two games, playing set-pieces, scrums, line-outs, they played a lot more ball in hand,” he added.

Organisation News ZimbabweAfrica ZimbabweAfrica News January 12, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Bad start to the year in Zimbabwe with three journalists arrested and the Daily News still banned Three journalists from the Zimbabwe Independent, including the editor, were arrested by police in Harare on 10 January, accused of insulting President Robert Mugabe.”The year 2004 opened in the worst possible way for press freedom in Zimbabwe. Three journalists have already been arrested and police are still preventing the Daily News for reappearing despite a high court ruling in its favour,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of Reporters Without Borders.”The government no longer even respects the decisions of the courts. We are extremely concerned about the working conditions for Zimbabwe journalists and call on the authorities to pull back. The people have the right to diverse and independent news and information,” he added.Iden Wetherell, editor of the Zimbabwe Independent, one of the two private weeklies in the country, and two of his journalists, Vincent Kahiya and Dumisani Muleya, were arrested on 10 January and taken to a police station in Harare. Police are reportedly still seeking a fourth journalist, Idai Dzamera.They are all accused of publishing an article that was “insulting” to the head of state. The Zimbabwe Independent had reported that President Mugabe took a plane belonging to the national carrier Air Zimbabwe for his holidays in Asia, resulting in loss of earnings to the public company of three billion Zimbabwe dollars (about 3 million euros).The three journalists from the Zimbabwe Independent were released on bail on 12 January. They all remain under judicial supervision and the date of their trial has not yet been set.Elsewhere, the high court ruled on 9 January that the Daily News could resume publishing but police said they had not received any such instructions and refused to reopen the newspaper’s print works, preventing it from reappearing.The following day, the state national daily The Herald reported that the authorities planned to appeal against the high court decision.
