Lions 2013: Calls for comeback kings

first_img Bounding back: Paul O’Connell played a real captain’s knock against Harlequins in the Heineken Cup quartersBy Alan DymockLAZARUS HAD never seen the Rocky movies, but if he had it is impossible to imagine him losing the Bethany heavyweight title.Confusing myth with reality – badly? Well, you would be forgiven for doing so just weeks before the Lions squad is selected. The word “comeback” is firmly on everyone’s lips.Getting back on his feet: Johnny SextonThis weekend the ‘Man Who Would Be Ten’ Jonathan Sexton is pencilled in to make a comeback for Leinster. He has much to prove with the one-week bandwagon for Jonny Wilkinson and Ian Madigan currently getting a hot pink touch-up and fitted with turbo boosters, but this may be a return watched more closely than most.The interesting thing is that if he does return it comes against Munster’s own bounceback beau ideal, Paul O’Connell. The lock turned in a true captain’s performance in the quarter-final of the Heineken Cup against Harlequins, roaring his young and not-so-young charges into a stirring second-half performance that saw the province into the last four. He had previously hinted that it takes a mere handful of games to get back to form and onlookers scoffed. When the twilight starts to draw in on a player’s career there is a sense that their graying body will struggle to cope. However, he was true to his word, elevating his performance on a grand stage while Quins and Chris Robshaw were the ones looking like they had been up for three days straight.It poses an interesting question about the dependence on known quantities and the elixir of form. Some players – and this includes a very small band of success-conditioned professionals – only need a few weeks of build-up or even a short time in tour camp to prepare themselves to perform in Test rugby. O’Connell and Sexton seem to be more driven than the M25 and arguments could be made to include the pair come Lions time because of their ability to will themselves forward. With others, though, it becomes harder to justify leaving out form players.Bloodied, unbowed: a hard-working Nathan Hines Discussions of captain are by the by and with O’Connell there is no guarantee that he would start should he tour, but with discussions about the like of Nathan Hines’s performances for Clermont Auvergne and potential second-row experience for what will undoubtedly become an arduous tour at some point, the Irishman offers a soothing balm. He, and perhaps even Brian O’Driscoll were Warren Gatland and his team inclined to take the centre, would be a calming influence that could silently enforce and hold up the ideals of any younger captain. CLERMONT-FERRAND, FRANCE – APRIL 06: Nathan Hines of Clermont Auvergne looks on during the Heineken Cup quarter final match between Clermont Auvergne and Montpellier at Stade Marcel Michelin on April 6, 2013 in Clermont-Ferrand, France. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) History teaches you much about what makes a successful tour. When you ignore the flapping panic and bumping gums that invariably create the din before a squad announcement, Gatland will be aware that he needs a sense of team togetherness that the 2001 and 2005 tours did not have. He needs a drive and a sheer bloody-mindedness within his squad that can push players to surpass even what they have done for club and country. He needs to pick with balance, complementing talent and squad harmony in equal measure. That means picking players that, to a man, could play Test rugby, but also players that, were they not, could still boost and influence those that do.So much talk is about exciting bolters, but when you are off for a month-plus, perhaps the comeback specialists are best placed to be in your corner with you.

10 foods all rugby players should be eating during pre-season training

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 10) Spices“Garlic, oregano, chilli pepper, paprika, chilli… you need a well-stocked kitchen to flavour your food with the right sort of spices. They’re anti-inflammatory and immune-enhancing, and the best one, which I take as a supplement and eat once a week, is turmeric.” 6)  Oats“Cook them with semi-skimmed milk or water. They’re a source of slow-release energy and are high in fibre. They’re also beta glucan rich, which helps immune function, and make a perfect pre-training breakfast.”7)  Blueberries“They contain high levels of protective nutrients which stop the ageing process. A car gets rusty when it gets old, and the human body is the same. Cells decay, skin gets wrinkly and collagen breaks down. Blueberries are the best at slowing down that process, though other berries are good too.”Hard graft: Quins preparing ahead of the 2016/17 season8)  Sweet potato“They contain beta carotene, like carrots, though normal potatoes are actually higher in all other nutrients. Sweet potatoes are higher in carbohydrate but lower on the glycemic index, and provide a good starch for energy. They’re another slow carb, while normal potatoes only have the effects of slow carbs when combined with other vegetables or lentils.”9)  Coconut and olive oil“Coconut oil is good for your immune function and digestion, and kills bad bacteria. It burns quickly, like a carb, and is heat stable. In other words, when you heat it to a high temperature, it doesn’t de-nature.“Olive oil is full of flavonoids and is anti-ageing. Use coconut oil for frying, and drizzle olive oil over salads and cooked food.” 5)  Chicken and turkey“A nice, high-quality, lean protein source. You should always buy free range minimum, and preferably organic. That means the animal won’t have been given antibiotics or hormones, and will have been fed organic food itself. You want to be eating as close as you can to wild meat.“Turkey is a fraction leaner, but other than that they’re very similar.” It’s essential to eat well during pre-season training if you want to reach peak fitness in time for your first league match. Here are the top 10 foods all rugby players should be eating to help make those sessions pay off… center_img THE END of summer is synonymous with the conclusion of pre-season training. It’s the time of year when clubs can reflect on all the hard work that has been done; the beers and ice cream have been sweated out, and final preparations are being made for the opening game of the season.But why stop the good work? Rugby World is here to help! We asked England’s nutritionist Matt Lovell for the top ten food groups all rugby players should be eating as we draw ever closer to the regular season, to ensure they reach their peak fitness and sustain it.Life’s a beach: Exeter Chiefs get put through their paces on Exmouth Beach1)  The Broccoli family“Broccoli supplies important detoxifying chemicals,” says Lovell. “Other vegetables you can eat are brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale, bok choi and cabbage. They will aid recovery, liver function and increase antioxidant protection. They are also good for maintaining hormonal balance.“There’s a link between poor health (especially prostate health in men) and plastics in the environment. You can’t do this every time, but it’s worth considering getting your veg from a fruit stall that sells produce in paper bags, and likewise your meat from a butcher occasionally.”2)  Eggs“They’re very high in high-quality protein, B vitamins, zinc and good fats. They’re good for sustaining lean body mass and rebuilding muscle, and are also beneficial for your immune system and hormonal balance.“It’s a myth that too many eggs cause high cholesterol, and you can eat three or four a day if you’re training. There’s a much greater link between excess sugar and insulin to high cholesterol.”On yer bike: Billy Vunipola ticking over during a Sarries pre-season session3)  Wild Salmon“It’s higher in essential fats and protein, and lower in total and omega 6 fats than other salmon. You also get too much total and omega 6 fats from eating too many grains, and in excess they are pro-inflammatory for your joints and muscles. You can buy frozen wild salmon quite cheaply in supermarkets.”4)  Beans and Pulses“Kidney beans, chickpeas, peas and lentils. They’re very high in fibre and protein, and they’re rich in folate and other B vitamins. They’re high in minerals such as magnesium, too, which help your muscles relax and recover.“Fibre is essential for optimum digestion and colon health. This food group, also known as slow carbs, are two thirds carbs and one third protein, and release energy slowly – a good lunch option.” This article first appeared in July 2014.

Maro Itoje Mocks The Doubters After Scoring Try

first_imgRelated: Maro Itoje and Marcus Smith nominated for BEDSA AwardsHe then proceeded to celebrate by mocking those doubters by pretending to be asleep on the floor, which got a good laugh from all who saw it.It was an impressive try, and a funny celebration which capped off an imperious performance from the big man in the 24-11 win.At his best: Itoje against the All Blacks last summerHowever, most England fans probably couldn’t help wondering where this kind of performance was for the last three rounds of the 2018 Six Nations where England lost to Scotland, France and then Ireland respectively.Regardless, it is easy to forget that sports stars are people too, not robots, so it is great to see Itoje show a bit of creativity and a sense of humour in his celebration. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Maro Itoje Mocks The Doubters After Scoring TryAfter a sluggish Six Nations for England, a lot of talk has been about the English player being worn out. Tiredness has been heralded as one of the reasons utility forward Maro Itoje lost his form during the tournament, too.According to some of his critics, Itoje was too drained to have a serious impact, that he looked lethargic and needed a rest.Considering Itoje starts most games for Saracens, England, and earlier on in 2017, The British & Irish Lions tour to New Zealand, we could all forgive him for being a little tired and maybe wanting a rest.However, in Sacracens’ match against Harlequins today, he looked to prove those doubters wrong with an incredibly physical, and it has to be said, fresh display at the Olympic Stadium in London. Scoring the try: Maro Itoje dots down at the London Stadium Making tackles, and bossing the lineout as we have come to expect, Itoje also took a spare moment to bounce off a Harlequins defender and surge over the line to score a well-taken try. After scoring a try against Harlequins, Maro Itoje mocked his doubters with his celebration. Saracens needed the victory over Harlequins as they are in a battle with the Exeter Chiefs, and Wasps, for top spot in the Aviva Premiership.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter.last_img read more

Mission to Seafarers welcomes strangers with peace, vegetables

Other stories in the series can be found here.[Episcopal News Service – Seattle, Washington] In a plot that cozies up to the Duwamish Waterway, in the shadow of tug boats and a grain storage warehouse, is an unlikely sight: eight raised beds of lettuces, green tomatoes and squash blossoms.There’s a carpet of wood chips. There’s a picnic table and some benches. A small compost bin stands against a chain-link fence. On the other side of the fence grow wild raspberries, cascading toward the waterway where tugboats pass on their way to work in the Port of Seattle.“It’s spectacular here,” exclaimed Mission to Seafarers Seattle Director Ken Hawkins on a recent afternoon as tugs sounded their horns and traffic on the West Seattle Bridge streamed overhead.Johanna Padie, a parishioner at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Redmond, Washington, helped start the Mission to Seafarers’ gardening ministry at the Port of Seattle. Photo: Mission to Seafarers Seattle via FacebookThe idea of planting vegetables on a plot of land at the Mission to Seafarers Seattle office came to Hawkins and Johanna Padie, a Seafarers supporter from St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Bellevue, Washington, during a conversation in the fall of 2013 about using more of the Mission’s space for ministry. The corner of land in question was “just rough, gray dirt,” he said.The idea of an urban garden emerged and Hawkins contacted Seattle-area resident Brian Sellers-Peterson, senior advisor to the president of Episcopal Relief & Development and a champion of church-community agriculture. Hawkins said Sellers-Peterson and Padie made the garden happen.In 2104, volunteers built and cultivated six raised beds for which St. Margaret’s donated the materials. That year the beds produced 1,000 servings of vegetables for local food banks and shelters. Lutheran volunteers added two more beds in 2015. Also last year, employees from Microsoft, which is headquartered in the Seattle area, helped to do general maintenance and they will return this year during the local United Way’s annual “day of caring.”Volunteers grow vegetables for visiting seafarers, and donate to a local food pantry and churches. Other volunteers come to help with maintenance, such as the group of junior high school students from the Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross in Redmond, Washington, that came on a recent weekend to pull weeds, spread more wood chips, trim up the fence line “and help us continue to make this a place of welcome,” in Hawkins’ words.Volunteers fill a raised bed in the Seattle Mission to Seafarers’ port garden. Photo: Mission to Seafarers Seattle via FacebookThe beds yielded 2,000 servings of food in 2015, Hawkins said, and earlier on the day he spoke to Episcopal News Service, volunteers harvested between 20 and 30 pounds of food. This year volunteers planted the beds with tomatoes, zucchini, squash, kale, chard and lettuces. Most of the food that doesn’t go to seafarers aboard their ships goes to the West Seattle Food Bank, about three miles south of the garden, and area Episcopal and Lutheran churches.In 2016, Hawkins said, a conversation about how to offset the carbon footprint of churches buying altar flowers that come from outside the United States led to volunteers planting flowers and bulbs at the center. Church saved hundreds of dollars using the flowers and much of that money came back to the Seafarers in the way of donations. Amid all the work involved “we built community at the mission,” he said.The garden is just a part of the Mission to Seafarers’ ministry. In operation for more than 40 years, the Seattle center provides on-board services to 30,000 seafarers. And volunteers greet cruise ship employees each summer. Some of those cruise ship employees get a ride in one of the mission’s vans from the port to downtown Seattle. They’re asked to donate $5 for the ride (as opposed to the $20 or more that a taxi ride would cost) and the donations go back into the ministry. More than 10,500 crew members make use of the service during the summer.The mission also provides chaplain services and, at Christmas, volunteers sew, fill and distribute ditty bags with toiletries and a hand-knitted hat. Seafarers can use computers at the Mission to Seafarer’s Seattle center and can also connect their own devices to the internet through the center’s Wi-Fi. Volunteers bring cell phones and low-cost phone SIM cards to seafarers who cannot leave their ship so that they can call home while in port. They also offer to do any necessary shopping for the mariners.The Seattle Mission to Seafarers has hosted people from 100 countries. A third of them are from the Philippines and roughly another third come from China, India, Malaysia and Indonesia, according to Hawkins. Many of those seafarers have spent weeks, months and even years aboard their ships. U.S. Homeland Security rules make shore leave difficult for many seafarers.Forty percent of Washington’s jobs depend on international trade and those jobs pay 25 percent more than those involved local manufacturing and the service sector. Seafarers “are lubricating the lives of one of the wealthiest cities and states in the world” yet they live below many people’s radar, Hawkins said.“They’re strangers in a strange land when they come here; they’re strangers in their own land (when they return). We have a chance to welcome those people and get by the traditional mission condescension that plagued us for centuries,” he said. “I don’t think you can truly welcome a stranger if condescension is built into your attitude.”In the Mission to Seafarers’ work “there’s a chance for us to make a difference in people’s lives that is tangible and I believe as Christians and the children of God, we’re called to do that,” he said.Volunteering at the Seattle Mission to Seafarers is often an intergenerational activity. Here two volunteers plan one of the raised beds in May 2015. Photo: Mission to Seafarers Seattle via FacebookThat chance to change people’s lives comes with a dichotomy, Hawkins said:  “We go out expecting to change someone’s life and what happens is we are changed” by meeting people who are some of the unsung workers of the global economy.Counting the 300 women and a few men from all over the United States who knit hats for the Seattle Mission to Seafarers’ Christmas gift program, the ministry attracts more than 400 volunteers. “I believe if we can inspire 400 people, that is the power of evangelism,” Hawkins said.Those volunteers “see the world through our eyes of service, humility and humanity,” Hawkins said, who added that part of the ministry’s mission is “to bring ourselves to the rest of humanity and bring our brothers and sisters to these places so they will experience the world and other people in a truly inspiring and wonderful setting.”And, it might just be “more about the church of the future than most of the structures we have throughout the Episcopal Church,” he said.The Port of Seattle is one of more than 200 ports in 50 countries where the Mission to Seafarers International ministers. Founded in 1856, the ministry has its roots in the Anglican Church and today Queen Elizabeth II is its patron.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Stephanie Spellers, the presiding bishop’s canon for evangelism, reconciliation and creation care, told Episcopal News Service in an email. “Together, we’ll find new ways to support each other, live what we’ve promised, and tend our fragile and beautiful home. That’s what it means to be the Jesus Movement.”(Update: By midday April 24, the total had risen to 1,064 with more pledges still coming in.)“It’s not too late to share the ways you’re foster loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with the Earth,” a post on the church’s Facebook page said on April 23 in announcing the church had met its pledge goal. The total had steadily climbed all day April 22, Earth Day, as the church posted updates on social media and encouraged participation.A celebration is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. ET April 28 at Washington National Cathedral. The Interfaith Celebration of Creation will include a blessing of all the pledges submitted during the recent campaign. Details, including how to watch the event online, can be found here.The pledge campaign launched March 29 with the message that even small steps can make a difference in caring for God’s creation. Episcopalians were invited to use the church’s online form to identify the ways they planned to be better caretakers of the Earth. That form is still active, and those who haven’t take the pledge yet can do so here.General Convention in 2015 identified creation care as one of the church’s three top priorities, along with racial reconciliation and evangelism. In 2018, General Convention passed 19 environmental resolutions, including support for a national carbon tax, carbon offsets for church-related travel, ocean health and Episcopalians’ continued participation in the Paris Agreement.The online Pledge to Care for Creation features three parts, representing the Christian call to develop a “loving, liberating, life-giving relationship with God.”Participants are asked to submit one example under “Loving” for sharing the love of God’s creation, a second example under “Liberating” for standing with people being harmed by environmental injustice, and a final example under “Life-Giving” of individual actions they intend to take. Some examples include changing eating habits, increasing use of renewable energy and sharing related information with one’s congregation.Those making pledges also were encouraged to learn about the Diocese of California’s new “Carbon Tracker,” which allows users to measure and track their carbon footprint. And they can share videos, photos or messages about taking the pledge to social media and tag the posts with the hashtag #creationpledge. The Episcopal Church’s reflection guide has been posted here as an additional resource.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Born June 6, 1925, in rural Washington County, Georgia, he was the oldest of a family of three boys and two girls. He did well in school and athletics, all while helping with all the various chores on the family farm. After he completed high school, he became a naval aviator and trained as a dive bomber pilot during World War II. His passion for flying remained with him throughout his life and extended to restoring an old Aerocoupe — his favorite aircraft — which he flew for years.After the war he completed his undergraduate degree at Mercer University and then earned a divinity degree and a Ph.D. in history from Emory University.He became a chaplain in the Naval Reserves and served until his retirement as a commander in 1972. Up until the last decade of his life, he remained an enthusiastic pilot.Ed’s career reflected his interest in serving and helping make the world a better place. He was an ordained Baptist minister, a professor at Stetson University, a dean at Emory University, a soccer coach and referee, a Peace Corps regional director in Nigeria, and the founder of the Overseas Development Office of the Episcopal Church,which helped establish libraries, hospitals and refugee programs in many areas of Africa. In Liberia, he was the dean of a private university and creator of a rural farming development program, and a grants administrator for the International Foundation.Ed loved doing things that made the world a better place and worked well into his 80s. He traveled all over the world, meeting and encouraging people, and helped fund projects in health, education, and humanitarian assistance.Thailand, the Amazon River basin, Vietnam, Sudan, Kenya, Liberia, the Philippines and many other developing areas benefited from his work, which brought hospitals, schools, clean running water and other resources they needed.He had an undying interest in the happenings in the worlds of science, history and human affairs and was an avid reader of books, periodicals and magazines that expanded on his voracious appetite for knowledge. Ed was also a lifelong athlete who loved competing in track and field events, especially high jump, shot put, discus, and hurdles. Inducted into the Emory University Sports Hall of Fame, he continued attaining records and wins in masters events worldwide up into his 80s.He was the proud and loving patriarch of a large family. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Shirley Miller Holmes, and children, Jane Holmes Bass (Leon), Margaret Holmes Bryant (Bill), Graham Holmes (Rebekah), and Shirley Kathryn Woods (Tim); as well as stepchildren Frances Page Glascoe, Charlotte Rorech (Paul), and David Page, along with numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
