European Rugby Champions Cup: English success? Enjoy it while you can

first_imgSo if you are English, savour it while you can; if you are Celtic, you must know the slump cannot last; and if you are French you’ve got the second favourites for this year’s title still running for you.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Causing a buzz: Wasps’ Elliot Daly, Thomas Young and Dan Robson celebrate their win over Exeter There has been a lot of talk about the resurgence of English club rugby after its dominance of the Champions Cup, says Adam Hathaway, but it won’t always be like this “Getting a regular five through is probably not going to happen, but we will get two or three on a regular basis.”The Irish provinces supplied five winners of Europe’s elite competition in the seven years up to Leinster’s last win in 2012 and after a little run like that, the retirement of some of the world’s top performers and a slip in finances they were due a dip.Due a dip: Leinster’s three European titles in four years was never going to be sustainable (Inpho)English clubs have got their signings right this time. The Piutau brothers and Frank Halai haven’t done Wasps’ cause any harm, alongside George Smith, and Telusa Veainu and Peter Betham at Leicester have led the charge for the Tigers. Saracens aren’t as loaded with foreigners as their reputation suggests but Schalk Brits, Neil de Kock, Marcelo Bosch and Titi Lamositele are all proven performers.It could just be a perfect storm for English clubs and there is no guarantee that it will last. As well as the influx of top-notch foreign signings, the Premiership clubs are feeling the benefit of a glut of decent English-qualified youngsters coming through.From the 2011 U20 vintage that reached the Junior World Cup final and gave them Joe Launchbury, Owen Farrell, George Ford and Mako Vunipola, through to the 2013 crop, which won the title, with Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Dom Barrow, Anthony Watson and Jack Clifford on board to Maro Itoje’s 2014 crew, there are plenty of players in their early 20s with a couple of seasons of league rugby under their belts and more than a few caps between them.End of the line? England finished fifth in the U20 Six Nations, suggesting thinner times ahead (Inpho)But as the results of this year’s U20 Six Nations showed, the production line has the odd hiccup – this season England’s youngsters were beaten by France, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.And the Champions Cup is getting more difficult to win. Young adds: “It has got harder and you won’t have situations where teams go through groups without losing a game.” When the dust had settled after last weekend’s Champions Cup quarter-finals, there were three English clubs and one French outfit left standing.The representation from the Premiership hasn’t been so heavy in the last four since 2006-07. That was the last time an English side – Lawrence Dallaglio’s Wasps – won the title, in an all-Anglo final against Leicester.This year there was no Irish side in the last eight, for the first time since 1997-98, and Scotland and Wales have only had two sides between them in the quarter-finals in the past six years. Right, so England fans can look forward to a period of having things their own way on the European front?As another antidote to the shambles of the World Cup, it has topped up the feel-good factor of England’s Grand Slam. But anyone who thinks this is a return to the earlier days of the tournament when Bath, Northampton, Leicester and Wasps won six titles between them in a decade should probably have a rethink.Anglo affair: 2007 was the last all-English final but it could be on the cards again this year (AFP/Getty)There have been a few moans about the new format, how the richest clubs are going to dominate, and the richest clubs are in England and France, and how this is the deathknell for the Celtic nations in competing in Europe – but that is probably cobblers.As with anything in this game, it’s portrayed as black and white but there are more than a few shades of grey in between and if you don’t believe me listen to Dai Young, director of rugby at Wasps.His side won a group that contained Toulon, Leinster and Bath – European champions all of them – and edged through a pulsating quarter-final against Exeter, which is a candidate for game of the season so far, and they did this less than three years after nearly going to the wall. But Young says English fans should make the most of it while they can.Realist: “Getting a regular five teams through is probably not going to happen,” says Dai Young (Getty)“It’s a big call to sit here and say this is going to be a regular thing but I was just as dismissive two or three years ago when we said we weren’t getting any English teams there,” says the former Wales and Lions prop. “Over the last year or two Saracens have been the team that have been fighting for England. I never thought we were as bad then as it was portrayed and we are probably not as good now as it looks either.“English teams are strong and they closing the gap on some of the French teams. That points to evidence that the Premiership is a strong league. TAGS: Wasps LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Ghost Brigade leaders on Mozgovoi’s legacy

first_imgKirovsk, Lugansk People’s Republic – On May 8, a group of 11 internationalist visitors along with the leader of the Lugansk Communists received a tour at the front lines of battle from Prizrak (Ghost Brigade) Deputy Commander Alexey Markov (Dobriy). Afterward, we had the opportunity to meet with and ask questions of Commander Pyotr Biryukov (Arkadich).Ghost Brigade Commander Commander Pyotr BiryukovOne of the things I asked about was the legacy of Commander Alexei Mozgovoi, for the Ghosts and for Donbass, a year after his death. Mozgovoi and four of his comrades were assassinated in a roadside attack on May 23, 2015.Arkadich responded: “We are here! That is the main answer. Mozgovoi is still alive for us and we have not forgotten him. It was our choice to join Prizrak in 2014.“We don’t forget any of his principles, his program for People’s Power. We may not shout things aloud, but we push ahead with our line.”A fascist group from Ukraine took credit for Mozgovoi’s assassination. However, there was intense speculation that conservative forces in the government of the Lugansk People’s Republic may have been responsible. Other prominent left-leaning militia leaders have also been slain under mysterious circumstances.Arkadich addressed this issue: “Many people wanted to make a sensation about Mozgovoi [after his death] — Internet warriors — talking about how we should go to Lugansk to clean house. There were many accusations, but we need a solid basis to take action. We don’t want to be clowns or make accusations that would aid the enemy.“War is the continuation of politics by other means. We know what we are fighting for. We cannot forget those killed in Odessa. We don’t go into politics right now [in the Republics] because the situation is complicated. But we have our own ideology and political line.”Dobri added: “In 1914, when World War I began, no one knew that world empires would fall. We can’t say what will happen in the coming years, but we are not only fighting in a war, but gaining very important experience which may one day be valuable for everyone. As communists, we have to be ready for any kind of world situation.“In times of crisis there is a chance for small but ideologically developed forces, like the Bolsheviks after World War I. And maybe we will have that chance.”“We are not rebels,” said Arkadich. “We are revolutionaries.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

King takes further measures against press freedom

first_img June 8, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the presence of large numbers of security personnel inside the offices of newspapers in Kathmandu and the prior control they are exercising over news reports. The press freedom organization also requested the release of detained journalists and an end to the harassment of the families of those journalists who have gone into hiding to avoid arrest.After banning the publication of any criticism for six months, the royal palace today issued a new series of directives banning negative reports about the security forces under pain of imprisonment or house arrest. The military have also been granted the authority to monitor and ban any communication as part of the state of emergency.Despite certain concessions that should allow provincial newspapers to resume publishing, the army is continuing to impose drastic measures on the press. The secretary-general of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ), Bishnu Nisthuri, was arrested at his home in Kathmandu on 4 February while police have taken up position around the FNJ’s office in the capital.But contrary to earlier reports, neither FNJ president Tara Nath Dahal nor K. C. Netra, the BBC World Service’s correspondent in the southwestern town of Nepalgunj, has been arrested. Dahal’s family has, however, reportedly been harassed by the army.Local FM re-transmission of the BBC World Service’s Nepalese-language programmes has been banned but the BBC’s English-language broadcasts are permitted. The privately-owned TV station Nepal One is still banned from broadcasting and its studios are being watched by the military. Indian cable and satellite TV stations are still unavailable. BBC World and CNN television programmes are permitted, but they are censored whenever they refer to the situation in Nepal. Most of the independent weeklies in Kathmandu, including Budhabar, are closed.Five dailies and a dozen weeklies have been closed in Nepalgunj but an army officer told the editors they would be able to resume publishing soon. Newspapers in the western town of Butwal have prepared an issue for today, after being closed for a week. Army officers asked journalists to publish news “honouring the spirit of the royal proclamation.”In Chitawan (southwest of Kathmandu), newspapers were also due to reappear today after negotiations with the military authorities.The censorship has done away with all independent reporting. A Nepalese newspaper editor quoted by The Times of India said he had never seen such censorship. “One could test the limits in the past by writing something provocative but now we have received clear warnings to do nothing against the interests of the current regime,” he said. Nonetheless, the Kantipur and Kathmandu Post dailies today ran editorials calling on the king to restore press freedom.To offset the lack of news, an underground bulletin called Jana Awaj, reproducing reports from the BBC and Indian press, was being circulated in Butwal.As a result of the enforced blackout, 28 journalists were reportedly fired by Radio Kantipur FM. Staff with the Kantipur group’s print media could also be affected.
