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”.

The most efficient way of doing this, he believes, is by allocating vacant houses to those on the social housing list.“Houses can remain vacant or boarded up for months throughout the city, and this at a time when there are many people living with relatives or in emergency accommodation. This is an issue of urgent importance and needs to be addressed and resolved immediately,” said Cmhlr Ó Ceallaigh.“Boarding up houses can lead to a much larger renovation cost and an increase in anti-social behaviour in the area. Often items are stolen including pipes and heating systems.“When a house is boarded up, quite often it is broken into ransacked, and the damage then has to be repaired before the house is allocated,” he claimed.

The Arena’s search for a new sponsor begins

first_imgCurrently, the Arena is developing the RFP, which Marion says is the most important step and he hopes will be sent out within 30 days. Arena manager Chris Marion says a new deal will not be in place by June 30, because it is a timely process that needs to be done the right way. “Developing the RFP, getting it out to the companies in the area, letting them review it, reviewing the proposals that come back, negotiating a contract, getting approvals and then actually implementing it, it’s quite a bit,” he says. Toward the end of 2019, Maines informed the Arena it would not be renewing the naming rights contract between the two, after a six-year partnership. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter. “You want to make sure you are defining exactly what you want to get out of the relationship so the potential sponsor knows what they are getting, the county knows what it’s getting, and we’re all on the same page.” Marion said he expects the entire process to be complete within four to five months, in line with the start of the next Binghamton Devils season. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As of June 30, Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena will no longer have “Floyd L. Maines” attached to its name. center_img “We’re looking not just for the company to put their name on our building or logo on our uniforms, but a partner that’s going to really honor the building and its purpose, help us bring more events to the building, and take us through this phase we’re in now and create a building we can be proud of for another 50 years,” said Marion. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Marion said he is optimistic when they send out the RFP, companies will be interested in a sponsorship. Marion says the Maines contract was worth $75,000, but said “when we put out a proposal, we don’t necessarily put out a minimum number,” adding “obviously the more money that comes in the more we can do with the facility in terms of reducing the property tax support the building receives. “We’re going to take our time, make sure we write the RFP or request for proposal for the next sponsor in a way that meets our goals, the goals of the community, the Veterans Memorial Arena. “There’s a lot of things that need to fall into place when you look at the marketing that goes along with the naming rights. From the physical signage, to the digital signage to the name of the building appearing on printed tickets,” he says. Marion added it is a lengthy process from start to finish. last_img read more
