Jones suggests powerhouse Lions centres to fight fire with fire against gigantic Springboks

first_imgWednesday May 12, 2021 Jones suggests powerhouse Lions centres to fight fire with fire against gigantic Springboks Two-time British and Irish Lions tourist Adam Jones has predicted Warren Gatland will start Robbie Henshaw and Bundee Aki in the centres to “go fire with fire” with South Africa this year.ADVERTISEMENTGatland named his 37-man squad last week to face the world champions this summer, and the midfield has proven to be an area that not only included some surprise inclusions but is up for debate as to who will wear the No.12 and No.13 jerseys.Robbie Henshaw, Bundee Aki, Chris Harris and Elliot Daly were the four centres selected, with Owen Farrell also an option, which means the likes of Jonathan Davies, Garry Ringrose and Manu Tuilagi were not called upon by Gatland and his coaching team.The Harlequins scrum coach Jones expects the Springboks to start either Damian de Allende or Harlequins’ André Esterhuizen, who Jones will know well, at inside centre, and therefore feels the Lions should try and match them physically.WATCH: De Allende shows his class as Munster dominate Leinster“I think they will go Henshaw at No.13 and Bundee Aki No.12,” the 100-cap former tighthead said on the House of Rugby podcast this week alongside Lee McKenzie and Sean O’Brien.“My reasoning behind this is [South Africa] are going to come with an absolutely gigantic inside centre, whether it’s de Allende or maybe André Esterhuizen if he gets picked.“I think [the Lions] will want to go fire for fire with them. So you go Bundee Aki, big lump, hard, gets you over the gain line, which Gats loves.“I just think Aki and Henshaw are going to be the pairing.”ADVERTISEMENTO’Brien also suggested that Gatland may opt for Farrell at inside centre with Henshaw outside him, but expects South Africa to be direct in the first Test to see if the Lions can “stand up to them with that type of challenge”.

Above Normal U.S. Temps Through the End of 2017

first_img By NAFB News Service – Sep 22, 2017 Above Normal U.S. Temps Through the End of 2017 The National Weather Service is calling for above normal temperatures in the contiguous – U.S. over the last three months of 2017. The National Weather Service says the greatest chance of warmth comes in the Four Corners Region between October and December. This could possibly mean areas to the east may need some springtime rains to be ready for the spring planting season. That fact may be made worse because of drought spreading across the Midwest, including Kansas, as well as drought conditions that remain across parts of the Northern Plains. The end of the year forecast calls for above normal precipitation in the Pacific Northwest. The forecast also calls for below-normal precipitation along the Gulf Coast and into Missouri. Below-normal precipitation is in the forecast for eastern Kansas and Oklahoma. Meanwhile, the rest of the country is equally split between normal, above normal, and below normal chances for precipitation.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleTaiwan Trade Team Meets with Indiana FarmersNext articleAre Those Big Corn Yields Really Out there?

8 lessons credit unions should learn from 2014 data breaches

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Matt WilhelmI am the youngest in my family.  Eternally my mother’s baby.  Whenever I messed up in school or around the house, my mother would kindly say to me “Well, honey, you learn from your mistakes.”  Of course this infuriated my two older brothers, who would not always get the same gentle treatment when they forgot to turn in homework, or broke curfew.  My guess is most of you can either see my side of this story, or completely empathize with my brothers, depending on where you fall in your sibling lineup.I read an article yesterday from our friends at FLEX entitled “8 Lessons Credit Unions Should Learn from 2014 Data Breaches” and it got me to thinking about my mother’s wise words. We hear about data breaches constantly, whether it be from big box retailers or uber-sized financial institutions.  What is not always being broadcasted on national media are the countless smaller breaches and attacks: The times a credit union’s computers got a malicious malware that encrypted all their data, or when an employee got a PC stolen that had member sensitive information on it.Investigations of the major data breaches of 2014  have involved about 927 million consumer records. It is time we look at these breaches, and learn from our mistakes.Here are the 8 Lessons that Credit Unions should learn from the recent breaches:Hackers have become better organized:  According to a recent Rand report, 80% of hackers were freelancers, and 20% were part of larger organizations, 10 years ago; today that ratio is reversed.  Many of these organizations look like typical businesses with a normal corporate infrastructure.  Sometimes the hackers work together at the same location, and other times they are just emailing back and forth across great distances, but all are working toward a common goal. Often they are tied to traditional criminal organizations. continue reading »last_img read more

Kearney stars in Ireland win

first_img Press Association Leinster wing Kearney climbed off the bench to join brother Rob in the second-half fray, and he promptly bagged two tries in 13 minutes as Ireland beat Samoa 40-9. Peter O’Mahony claimed his first Ireland try too, with replacement Sean O’Brien and wing Fergus McFadden also crossing at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium. Tusi Pisi quickly levelled the scores from the tee though, with Ireland ruled offside in defence. Leicester Tigers prop Logovi’i Mulipola hobbled off moments later, dealing another blow to the visitors, already without scrum cornerstone Census Johnston. George Pisi and Alapati Leiua underscored Samoa’s attacking intent with neat breaks, but neither side could force a first-quarter try breakthrough. Jackson doubled his and Ireland’s tally from the tee to open the second quarter, after further scrum pressure from the hosts. A textbook catch-and-drive lineout followed another scrum penalty, producing an impressive try for O’Mahony. Ireland drove Samoa from the middle of the 22 over the whitewash, with new coach Schmidt’s attention to detail paying immediate dividend. Samoa rallied and Tusi Pisi duly notched his second penalty – but struck a post with his third shot at goal. Fergus McFadden wriggled close after Rob Kearney’s break, before Brian O’Driscoll failed to sneak home. Italian Television Match Official Carlo Damasco then judged George Pisi to have tip-tackled Tommy Bowe, with the Northampton centre handed a yellow card. Jackson slotted his third penalty to close the half. O’Mahony’s searing break brought the second period to life, lock Mike McCarthy shoving the Munster man through a midfield hole. The 24-year-old flanker’s stray pass ruined the move, but Ireland quickly struck their second try through O’Brien. Samoa wing Brando Vaaulu horribly misjudged Jackson’s bouncing punt, O’Driscoll nipped in to steal and flash a pass out wide to McFadden in the visitors’ 22. O’Brien had only been on the field six minutes when he powered home, registering his third try for his country. Tusi Pisi and Vaaulu’s nasty clash of heads ended both men’s night prematurely, with Pisi receiving lengthy on-field treatment before being carried off via stretcher. Versatile Fotuali’i stepped out to fly-half in the wake of Tusi Pisi’s nasty head injyury. And the 31-year-old captain landed Samoa’s third penalty of the night as the final quarter took shape. Ireland hit back straight away though, with a debut try for replacement Dave Kearney, who provided a neat finish in the right corner. The 24-year-old Leinster back-three even had chance to celebrate the moment with older brother and club-mate Rob. Schmidt’s men sustained the pace, with McFadden claiming the fourth try, and his eighth in Ireland colours. At the death Dave Kearney was able to cross again, taking a scoring pass from replacement Eoin Reddan. And Ireland were able to shut out the visitors, who failed to score a try for the first time in 26 Tests. A fine start to the Schmidt era, but the ex-schoolmaster will know Ireland must offer more in the next two weeks to sustain this winning opening. Scrum power formed the bedrock of this result, with 24-year-old debutant prop Jack McGrath turning in a top-class performance. Meticulous former New Zealand schoolteacher Schmidt was famed for his attention to detail in his Leinster coaching tenure and Ireland made it abundantly clear the new head coach has transferred that thirst for detail to the international arena. Munster flanker O’Mahony’s try was the product of an inch-perfect rolling maul, the highlight of the night in terms of team play. Along with detail, Schmidt loves high intensity and accuracy. Despite the victory clamour, the new boss will definitely be keen for greater sharpness in his other two chief elements for the next fortnight, when Ireland face Australia and New Zealand. Ireland created precious few opportunities behind the scrum in the first period, but their tight-exchange superiority was enough for a 14-9 lead at the break. Samoa’s Siva Tau war dance charged the Aviva Stadium atmosphere, specially led by Brian Lima in memory of late and legendary prop Peter Fatialofa. Ulster fly-half Paddy Jackson opened the scoring with a penalty after McGrath’s good scrum work and a turnover from stand-in skipper Jamie Heaslip. Dave Kearney’s two-try debut haul put the gloss on a trademark Joe Schmidt victory, the perfect way for the new coach to launch Ireland’s autumn international series.last_img read more
