World Cup 2015: England 35-11 Fiji

first_imgWhat was hot and what was not from the opening game of the 2015 World Cup between England and Fiji TAGS: Highlight Flying Fijian: Nemani Nadolo beats Anthony Watson to a cross-kick to score Fiji’s try. Photo: Getty ImagesSlick attack – There was little of the flicks and tricks we expected from Fiji while England’s attack more often resulted in a knock-on before it went along the line and in the end they resorted to more of a power game, using big ball-carriers like Billy Vunipola and Sam Burgess to try to break the gain-line.STATISTICS3 – The number of scrums England lost. Fiji won all seven of theirs.24 – The number of handling errors: England (11) and Fiji (13).11 – The number of turnovers won by Fiji compared to four by England.England: M Brown; A Watson, J Joseph, B Barritt (S Burgess 62), J May; G Ford (O Farrell 62), B Youngs (R Wigglesworth 52); J Marler (M Vunipola 52), T Youngs (R Webber

Pens: Ford 2, Farrell.Fiji: M Talebula; W Nayacalevu, V Goneva, G Lovobalavu, N Nadolo; B Volavola, N Matawalu; C Ma’afu (P Ravai 74), S Koto (T Talemaitoga 74), M Saulo (I Colati 76), A Ratuniyarawa (T Cavubati ht), L Nakarawa, D Waqaniburotu (P Yato 60), A Qera (capt), S Masi Matadigo.Yellow card: Matawalu (13-23).Try: Nadolo. Pens: Nadolo, Volavola.Referee: Jaco Peyper (South Africa) England left it late in the opening game of the 2015 World Cup but they did eventually wrap up a bonus-point win over Fiji when Billy Vunipola got the tip of the ball on the line in the last minute. They dominated the first 22 minutes, scoring two tries to lead 15-0, but then fell flat. The Fijians caused them problems at the breakdown and it took two tries in the last ten minutes for Chris Robshaw’s side to secure that bonus point, which will be crucial in Pool A.WHAT’S HOT…The Twickenham atmosphere  – So often berated for being too quiet and too corporate, the Twickenham crowd made themselves heard at the opening game of RWC 2015. Well, at least early on. The noise dipped when the match itself didn’t quite go as expected for the vast swathes bedecked in white England shirts. It picked up in the last ten, though, when England needed some vocal support – and was raucous when they got the fourth try. Long may a spine-tingling atmosphere at Twickers continue.Make some noise! The Twickenham crowd get into the spirit. Photo: Getty ImagesMike Brown – There were a couple of mistakes early on but he backed himself to score in the face of two defenders in the first half and when England needed someone to take the game by the scruff of the neck in the second he stood up, continually running the ball back at Fiji. He supported play well and was perfectly placed to take an offload from Owen Farrell to score his second try and from the restart weaved through the Fiji defence to lift the crowd and his team.Fiji’s forwards – A couple of times they were overwhelmed at the scrum and in the maul, but on the whole they held their own with Manasa Saulo particularly impressive. They also constantly disrupted England at the breakdown, winning numerous turnovers and penalties that meant the hosts could get no flow to their game.Impact subs – Joe Launchbury stopped Nemani Nadolo in full stride within minutes of arriving on the pitch while Billy Vunipola was like a man possessed when he came on. He was constantly offering himself as a carrier (as did Sam Burgess) and made a few big hits.Power play: Billy Vunipola scored the crucial bonus-point try. Photo: Getty ImagesWHAT’S NOT…The TMO process – In the first half-hour the TMO was used four times, making the length of the game at that point 40 minutes in real time. Not only was the length of time a worry, but the fact that Ben Volavola was about to take the conversion before the officials realised Nikola Matawalu had dropped the ball before grounding it showed there are still flaws in the whole process. Surely with all this Hawkeye technology, the eagle eyes in the truck should have spotted that sort of error sooner?Fijian discipline – First Dominiko Waqaniburotu was penalised for a dangerous tackle on Jonny May, next Nikola Matawalu was sin-binned for joining England’s driving maul at the side (an act which resulted in a penalty try) and then Api Ratuniyarawa was pinged for not using his arms in a clearout. Fiji will need to be more disciplined if they’re to make an impact in this tournament.

The order was passed based on complaints by some groups that the serial was against communal harmony.Challenging the order, M/s AM Private Television Ltd, which runs the channel “Rengoni TV” in which the serial was to be aired, filed a writ petition in the High Court. The petitioner’s counsel, S Sarma, submitted that the police commissioner can pass the order only on the basis of the recommendations of a District Monitoring Committee. As per the latest guidelines of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting issued in 2017, a representative from the electronic media should be included in the Monitoring Committee. However, the recommendation of the Monitoring Committee, based on which the Commissioner passed the order, did not have a representative from the media, the petitioner contended.The Government did not dispute the fact that the Monitoring Committee was not constituted as per the latest guidelines was not disputed. However, it was argued by the Government Advocate that even if the constitution of the Committee was illegal, it did not have any consequence on the order, as the Commissioner was independently competent to pass it.The Court did not accept this contention and said :”The complaints were evidently addressed to the Chairman of the Monitoring Committee and therefore, a duly constituted monitoring committee was required to apply its mind on the merit of the complaints before making any recommendation in the matter which has apparently not been done in this case”.The Court further noted that the copies of the complaints were not served on the petitioner and no opportunity of hearing was given. Also, the impugned order did not record any reason, the Court noted. Therefore, the Court concluded that the order was unsustainable in the eye of law not only on the ground of violating the procedure but also “for violating the principles of natural justice and for non-application of mind”. “The respondent No.4 was clearly not justified in suspending the telecast of the serial by an exparte blanket order without giving an opportunity of hearing to the petitioners to explain their stand or recording any cogent reason for doing so”, the Court said.Therefore, the order was set aside, giving liberty to the competent authority to decide the matter afresh, after affording an opportunity of hearing to the parties. The bench clarified that it has not expressed anything on the merits of the complaint.Though the Court said that the petitioner will be at liberty to telecast the serial, it ordered that the telecast should be subject to the condition that the Managing Director of the channel should make a personal satisfaction that “any content of the Serial which is deemed to be universally objectionable on the ground of violation of communal harmony or which may contain anything that may harm the religious sentiment of any community, is deleted, before making the telecast”.Click here to download the orderRead Order Next Storylast_img read more

Notice of intended marriage – When a marriage is intended to be solemnized under this Act, the parties to the marriage shall give notice thereof in writing in the form specified in the Second Schedule to the Marriage Officer of the district in which at least one of the parties to the marriage has resided for a period of not less than 30 days immediately preceding the date on which such notice is given.Section 6(2): Marriage Notice Book and publication -(2) The Marriage Officer shall cause every such notice to be published by affixing a copy thereof to some conspicuous place in his office.Section 7: Objection to marriage – (1) Any person may, before the expiration of thirty days from the date on which any such notice has been published under sub-section (2) of section 6, object to the marriage on the ground that it would contravene one or more of the conditions specified in section 4.(2) After the expiration of thirty days from the date on which notice of an intended marriage has been published under sub-section (2) of section 6, the marriage may be solemnized, unless it has been previously objected to under sub-section (1).(3) The nature of the objection shall be recorded in writing by the Marriage Officer in the Marriage Notice Book, be read over and explained if necessary, to the person making the objection and shall be signed by him or on his behalf.The centre, in its counter affidavit filed through its Deputy Legislative Council, also said that, “The procedure laid down in this Act for registration of marriage is fair and reasonable, and that the conditions relating to solemnisation of Special Marriage mentioned under Section 4 of the Act is in consonance with the intention behind the Act.”Refuting Rehman’s contention that the Sections violate the right to privacy, the affidavit also states that, “Though right to privacy is now part of fundamental right but it is not an absolute right as held by the Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court in the case of Justice K.S. Puttaswamy and Ors. Vs Union of India and Ors.”Next Storylast_img read more

It was the truth, the real truth about the night the Christ Child was born. Print Article Email the author Skip Published 10:50 pm Friday, December 23, 2011 Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell As much as I believed in Santa Claus, I believed even more in my granny.If Mugi said something was true, it was true.Grandmothers don’t tell little children “stories.” Book Nook to reopen Mugi said that on Christmas Eve night so long, long ago, the Baby Jesus was born in a cold, cold barn in a place called Bethlehem. She said that people all over the world had been waiting for the Baby Jesus to be born but they didn’t have radios or telephones or anything like that so God sent an angel to let everybody know that the Baby Jesus had been born.What Mugi said was that there were shepherds out in the field and they were the first ones to see the Angel of the Lord and to know.All of a sudden there was this bright light and then the angel just came out of nowhere and told the shepherds that the Baby Jesus had been born and they hurried off to see him.I already knew all about that because we had learned it in Sunday school.

But it was not just people that were waiting. The animals were waiting, too. All the animals all over the world.Now, Mugi said, that when the animals heard the Baby Jesus’ birth cry, they all welcomed Him into the world with their special sound. The cows mooed. The horses whinnied. Donkeys brayed. Wolves howled. Lions roared. Mice squeaked and the elephant trumpeted his welcome.I could image what that must have been like, all the animals welcoming the Baby Jesus with their special sounds.But Mugi said it wasn’t a noisy racket that the animals made. That all of their special sounds blended together to make the most beautiful music and you could hear it all over the world.Then, she said, that all of the animals got down on their knees to worship the Baby Jesus. All over the world, the animals knelt together. Mugi said the most wonderful sight was the baby lamb kneeling right next to a big, ol’ lion. She said that was because the Baby Jesus brought love and peace to the world.Now, all of that happened at midnight on Christmas Eve. And, Mugi said that from that night on, every year at midnight on Christmas Eve, all of the animals all over the world kneel to worship Jesus Christ the Savior of the World.In my child’s mind, that was the most wonderful thought of Christmas –all of the animals kneeling to worship a little baby called Jesus.What I wanted most was to see the animals kneel on Christmas Eve but Mama said little girls couldn’t be running around in the cow pasture at midnight on Christmas Eve. And, it was mighty dark back there, too. So, on Christmas Eve, I would close my eyes and imagine how it must be, the animals kneeling on the cold, cold ground in the quiet of the dark night worshiping the Baby Jesus.And, I knew it was that way because my granny told me so and grannies don’t tell stories.Jaine Treadwell is features editor of The Messenger.
