  • Timu, Paenga-Amosa handed Test debuts

    first_imgThe Reds pair have been named at hooker and No. 8, respectively, with Pete Samu also set to make his debut from the bench.Timu’s inclusion pushes David Pocock to blindside flanker, with captain Michael Hooper to start at openside.Izack Rodda will pack down alongside Adam Coleman in the second row, with Sekope Kepu earning the nod over Taniela Tupou at tighthead prop.Will Genia and Bernard Foley will resume their halves partnership but there is otherwise a new look to the backline, with Samu Kerevi and Dane Haylett-Petty named at outside centre and left wing, respectively.Haylett-Petty’s start is his first in close to nine months, after a biceps injury ended his 2017 season midway through the Rugby Championship, while Kerevi will start at 13 for the first time since last year’s Test against Japan.Kerevi’s shift to outside centre squeezes Tevita Kuridrani out of the 23 altogether, with utility Reece Hodge pushed back to the bench as Haylett-Petty and Marika Koroibete earn first crack on the wings.Late squad inclusion, Tolu Latu, has done enough to earn a spot as cover for Paenga-Amosa on the bench, while Lukhan Tui, Rob Simmons and Samu have all been named as part of a 6-2 split on the pine.Wallabies team to face Ireland1.

  • Rowing thrown Commonwealth Games lifeline

    first_imgUnder a new proposal adopted by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) at its General Assembly here yesterday, host cities must in future include 16 core sports as part of the programme and then can choose as many as they want from a list of optional sports and disciplines as long as it does not exceed a further 500 athletes.Rowing had been on the previous list of optional sports but has now been dropped, leading to Annamarie Phelps, the chairman of British Rowing, to launch a campaign to save it.”FISA, our International Federation, has been working closely for some years with the Commonwealth Games Sports Committee, and a number of large rowing Federations, to try and get rowing re-instated as a Commonwealth sport at the Games,” she said. “Rowing has met all the criteria set by the CGF Sport Committee for inclusion.”The Commonwealth Games is an excellent place for smaller nations to have the opportunity to shine, particularly those new to our sport such as the islands in the Caribbean and smaller nations like Scotland and Wales.”The growth and development of rowing in other parts of the world such as Africa and Asia has been and could be further enhanced by the opportunity to compete at a Commonwealth event too.”I am hugely dismayed and disappointed by the news of this proposal which is contrary to all that FISA and the NFs (National Federations) have been led to believe by the CGF over the last seven plus years.”Retaining rowing as an optional sport would cost nothing but help us grow into a stronger sport that could realistically be included.”David Grevemberg, chief executive of the CGF, has now promised they will review the situation.”We want to develop the formation for promotion and demotion of sports,” he told insidethegames.”We need to establish a pathway for sports.”It is quite possible for rowing to move back up.”Rowing appeared in the very first Commonwealth Games at Hamilton in 1930.It then appeared at four consecutive Games between 1950 and 1962 but has not been on the programme since Edinburgh 1986 when Sir Steve Redgrave won three gold medals.last_img read more
