They may not have been the one lifting the trophies but they are the Six Nations side that has made the most significant strides since RWC 2019.They have a young squad with plenty of depth and are well coached – take this set move for Damian Penaud’s try against England last week… France Six Nations Squad 2021France kept their Six Nations title hopes alive until the last match but ultimately had to settle for second place in the table behind Wales.The French needed a big bonus-point win against Scotland at the Stade de France, but lost 27-23 following a late Duhan van der Merwe try.Related: Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 yearsCoupled with their narrow defeat by England at Twickenham, it was second place once more for France, who haven’t won a Six Nations title since 2010.Still, they look to be building nicely for a home World Cup in 2023. Their disappointment at missing out on a Grand Slam by losing to England last week was evident when the final whistle blew at Twickenham. The question now is whether they can bounce back to beat Wales and maintain their title hopes. There’s no doubting their talent and skills, but this could come down to mentality.

He was in superb form before injury struck just before the championship and his triple threat of step, fend and offload are sure to keep England busy in defence.Some might have expected Romain Ntamack to come back into the starting line-up now he’s recovered from jaw surgery, but Matthieu Jalibert has been excellent at fly-half in this championship and deserves to retain the No 10 shirt. It will be interesting to see if Fabien Galthie brings Ntamack on to play alongside Jalibert in a dual playmaking option – the pair at 10-12 could prove very effective.Bernard Le Roux’s injury means they lose experience in the second row but Romain Taofifenua and Paul Willemse will form a hefty unit. Plus, with an six-two split between forwards and backs on the bench, it’s clear France are keen to take England on physically up front.France team to play Ireland – Sunday 14 FebruaryBrice Dulin; Damian Penaud, Arthur Vincent, Gael Fickou, Gabin Villiere; Matthieu Jalibert, Antoine Dupont; Cyril Baille, Julien Marchand, Mohamed Haouas, Bernard Le Roux, Paul Willemse, Anthony Jelonch, Gregory Alldritt, Charles Ollivon.Replacements: Pierre Bourgarit, Hassane Kolingar, Uini Atonio, Romain Taofifenua, Dylan Cretin, Baptiste Serin, Anthony Bouthier, Teddy ThomasFrance team to play Italy – Saturday 6 FebruaryBrice Dulin; Teddy Thomas, Arthur Vincent, Gael Fickou, Gabin Villiere; Matthieu Jalibert, Antoine Dupont; Cyril Baille, Julien Marchand, Mohamed Haouas, Bernard Le Roux, Paul Willemse, Dylan Cretin, Gregory Alldritt, Charles Ollivon.Replacements: Pierre Bourgarit, Jean-Baptiste Gros, Dorian Aldegheri, Romain Taofifenua, Anthony Jelonch, Baptiste Serin, Louis Carbonel, Damian Penaud.France Six Nations squad 2021Forwards(DoB/Club/Position/Test debut/caps)Dorian Aldegheri (4 Aug 1993/Toulouse/Prop/2019 v England/8)Gregory Alldritt (23 March 1997/La Rochelle/Back-row/2019 v Wales/23)Cyril Baille (15 Sep 1993/Toulouse/Prop/2016 v Samoa/28)Pierre Bourgarit (12 Sep 1997/La Rochelle/Hooker/2018 v New Zealand/5)Cyril Cazeaux (10 Feb 1995/Bordeaux Bègles/Lock/2020 v Italy/2)Camille Chat (18 Dec 1995/Racing 92/Hooker/2016 v Ireland/33)Dylan Cretin (4 Mar 1997/Lyon/Back-row/2020 v Wales/10)Jean-Baptiste Gros (29 May 1999/Toulon/Prop/2020 v Wales/9)Mohamed Haouas (9 Mar 1994/Montpellier/2020 v England/12)Wilfrid Hounkpatin (29 Jul 1991/Castres/Prop/uncapped)Anthony Jelonch (28 Jul 1996/Castres/Back-row/2017 v New Zealand/8)Bernard Le Roux (4 Jun 1989/Racing 92/Back-row/2013 v New Zealand/47)Julien Marchand (10 May 1995/Toulouse/Hooker/2018 v Fiji/14)Charles Ollivon (11 May 1993/Toulon/Back-row/2014 v Fiji/23)Romain Taofifenua (13 Sep 1990/Toulon/Lock/2012 v Argentina/25)Paul Willemse (13 Nov 1993/Montpellier/Lock/2019 v Wales/16)Cameron Woki (7 November 1998/Bordeaux Bègles/Back-row/2020 v England/5)BacksAnthony Bouthier (19 Jun 1992/Montpellier/Full-back/2020 v England/6)Baptiste Couilloud (22 Jul 1997/Lyon/Scrum-half/2018 v Italy/5)Jonathan Danty (7 Oct 1992/Stade Francias/Centre/2016 v Italy/6)Brice Dulin (13 Apr 1990/La Rochelle/Full-back/2012 v Argentina/36)Antoine Dupont (15 Nov 1996/Toulouse/Scrum-half/2017 v Italy/32)Gael Fickou (26 Mar 1994/Stade Francias/Centre/2013 v Scotland/63)Matthieu Jalibert (6 Nov 1998/Bordeaux Bègles/Fly-half/2018 v Ireland/12)Yoram Moefana (18 Jul 2000/Bordeaux Bègles/Centre/2020 v Italy/2)Romain Ntamack (1 May 1999/Toulouse/Fly-half/2019 v Wales/20)Damian Penaud (25 Sep 1996/Clermont/Wing/2017 v South Africa/22)Baptiste Serin (20 Jun 1994/Toulon/Scrum-half/2016 v Argentina/42)Donovan Taofifenua (30 Mar 1999/Racing 92/Wing/Uncapped)Teddy Thomas (18 Sep 1993/Racing 92/Wing/2014 v Fiji/27)Virimi Vakatawa (1 May 1992/Racing 92/Centre/2016 v Italy/30)Home turf: France play their home matches at Stade de France (Getty Images)France Six Nations Fixtures 2021(All kick-off times are GMT)Sat 6 February, Italy 10-50 France Dupont dazzles as France crush Italy in Six Nations openerSun 14 February, Ireland 13-15 France France win in Dublin for first time since 2011Fri 26 March, France 23-27 Scotland Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 yearsSat 13 March, England 23-20 France Antoine Dupont scores after 65 secondsSat 20 March, France 32-30 Wales Late Brice Dulin try denies Wales a Grand SlamDon’t miss a game with our TV coverage guide France ended this year’s championship in second place Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagramlast_img read more

MND suffering legend inspires Scotland as he delivers match ball before kickoff

first_imgMonday Nov 20, 2017 MND suffering legend inspires Scotland as he delivers match ball before kickoff There wasn’t a dry eye at Murrayfield on Saturday as Scotland legend Doddie Weir took to the field with his sons to deliver the match ball ahead of kickoff against New Zealand. Weir has been suffering from Motor Neuron Disease since being diagnosed in December.Following the traditional All Blacks Haka, a sold-out 67 000 strong Murrayfield crowd rose to welcome the popular former second rower and his three sons Angus, Hamish and Ben.Weir, 47, met and presented the match ball to New Zealand skipper Kieran Read and Scotland captain John Barclay, as well as England referee Matt Carley.It was an emotional moment, as he was clearly touched by the rousing reception. As was Kieran Read, who revealed what he told him when they met.“It’s hard to say too much. I just said ‘mate, you’re looking well’.“He got out there pretty good. Our thoughts are with him, and I know the Scots are doing a great thing for him in this game in donating their jerseys.”All of the Scotland jerseys had Doddie’s name and his cap number on them, and were presented to him after the match for him to auction off for his charity.Scotland were clearly inspired as they put on one of their best ever performances against the All Blacks, narrowly going down 22-17 after a thrilling finish to the game.MATCH HIGHLIGHTSWeir has set up a charitable foundation named My Names’5 Doddie Foundation to raise funds to investigate how to overcome and prevent MND as well as help out others who are suffering from the degenerative condition.

Rev. Pinkney transferred out of ‘hell hole’

first_imgSupporters of Rev. Edward Pinkney demonstrate in Grand Rapids, Mich., demanding he be released on bond.The Rev. Edward Pinkney, political prisoner, was transferred on Sept. 7 from the Marquette Branch Prison in the far north of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Some 11 months after arriving at that prison and suffering months of threats and abuse from guards, he was sent to West Shoreline Correctional Facility outside of Muskegon. His new location is only 90 miles from the home of his spouse, Dorothy Pinkney. The distance to Marquette, in comparison, was 500 miles.Rev. Pinkney has now served 22 months of his 30-month minimum sentence. On Dec. 15, 2014, he was given a 2 ½ to 10 year sentence for supposedly altering dates on a recall petition against then Mayor James Hightower of Benton Harbor, Mich. Rev. Pinkney was convicted with no evidence, simply for being the leader of the recall effort and a well-known activist in his home town. His case has drawn the support of the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Lawyers Guild, as well as many groups and individuals across Michigan.Attorney Tim Holloway filed an “Application for Leave to Appeal” with the Michigan Supreme Court on Rev. Pinkney’s behalf on Sept. 3. This reporter visited Rev. Pinkney at his new location on Sept. 30 and asked him about his long sought after transfer. He acknowledged the efforts of his supporters, who worked tirelessly to draw attention to the mistreatment, harassment and abuse he faced every day in Marquette Prison.This campaign included picketing the Michigan Department of Corrections in Lansing, protesting across the state, including outside Marquette’s prison gate, contacting state legislators to intervene for Rev. Pinkney’s safety and telephone barrages to Gov. Snyder and Heidi Washington, MDOC director.‘They wanted to get rid of me’According to Rev. Pinkney, “What I think was the final straw was when state Rep. Dave Pagel showed up at Marquette Prison during the last week of August. He is the chairperson of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of Corrections. And the first thing he did was to ask to see me! This kind of blew the minds of the prison officials.“I talked with Pagel in the law library for quite a while,” explained Rev. Pinkney. “After he left, my prison counselor wanted to know how I had so much ‘juice.’ I asked her if she wanted me to get her a raise or, maybe, a promotion.”Less than two weeks later, Rev. Pinkney was told to pack his things because he was leaving the next morning. “They wanted to get rid of me and all the scrutiny that comes with housing a political prisoner,” he stressed.Even with a possible appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court, which will take many months, Rev. Pinkney is looking for his earliest release to occur in June 2017. He is enjoying many more visitors already — and his supporters are not letting up on their organizing.Detroit activists from the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI.org), the Moratorium Now! Coalition Against Foreclosures, and the Detroit Active and Retired Employees Association joined together on Sept. 23 to carry out an all-day fish fry fundraiser for Rev. Pinkney’s defense. It raised hundreds of dollars.Plans are also in place to distribute leaflets about Rev. Pinkney at a regional conference of Amnesty International in Dearborn, Mich., on Oct. 8.Send birthday greetingsRev. Pinkney will celebrate another birthday behind bars. Oct. 27 is his 68th birthday. A campaign is underway to have hundreds of people send hundreds of cards and letters to him to express support — and to let the West Shoreline prison administration know they are being watched by Rev. Pinkney’s supporters around the country, who are paying attention to how he is being treated.Send cards and letters to The Rev. Edward Pinkney #294671, West Shoreline Correctional Facility, 2500 S.

The Division Bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Talwant Singh approved the recommendation given by the High Powered Committee wherein it was pointed out that the interim bail granted to 2177 UTPs shall be extended for 45 more days as the COVID19 crisis is still continuing. The High Powered Committee was constituted by the Delhi Government upon the direction given by the Supreme Court to decongest the prisons in Delhi, in light of the COVID19 pandemic. In light of the periodical directions of this committee, as well as the directions given by the High Court in the case of Shobha Gupta v. Union of India, 2177 Under Trial Prisoners (UTPs) were released on interim bail for a period of 45 days from the date of their respective release. On May 05, the High Powered Committee said period of 45 days in respect of some UTPs is going to expire on 09.05.2020 and for others it shall expire in coming days of May, 2020 and in the first week of June, 2020 but situation of the pandemic is still the same and the Central Government has already extended the Lock Down to 17.05.2020 and it may not be possible to predict definite date for resumption of normal functioning of Court system. In light of this, the committee was of the opinion that interim bail so granted to 2177 UTPs by respective CMMs/MMs needs to be extended for a further period of 45 days. Since it wouldn’t have been practical for each and every UTP to to approach the Magistrate individually to seek this relief, the committee was of the opinion that the same should be operationalised by a judicial order of the High Court. Mr Sandeep Goel, Director General (Prisons), and Mr Rahul Mehra (Standing Counsel, Delhi Government) also expressed their approval for the said extension of 45 days. While approving the recommendation of the High Powered Committee, and extending the interim bail of 2177 UTPs by 45 more days, the court noted that: ‘Director General (Prisons) shall ensure that this order is conveyed to all the 2177 UTPs by telephone, as well as, through all other available modes. Ld. Member Secretary, DSLSA shall coordinate with DG (Prisons) in this regard.’Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The remarks were made while deciding the culpability of reporting done by Republic TV and Times Now against Mumbai Police in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The Court was of the opinion that the press/media has the ability to mould the opinion of the society by publicity of certain facets of an investigative process. Such publications, the Court observed, could give rise to strong public emotions and prejudice the case of one party or the other, and thus the media ought to refrain from taking stances in its presentations which are biased or show a predilection for a particular point of view. It may be noted that Republic TV had argued before the Court that its Reporters had gathered incriminating materials that could connect the accused with the offence of murder and that the channel had honestly endeavoured to place facts for the information of its viewers, which Mumbai Police had been suppressing. “To our mind, the contention proceeds on a clear misunderstanding of the provisions of the Cr.P.C.,” the Bench observed stating that in case the media gets hold of real incriminating material during the course of “investigative journalism”, it ought to not publish it but rather hand over the same to the investigating officer. In this context, the Bench referred to Section 37 and Section 39 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, that provide instances for Public when to assist Magistrates and police and Public to give information of certain offences.Bombay High Court rejects arguments of #RepublicTV that it was doing “investigative journalism” in SSR case.If a channel has information that could assist the investigator, it should not be part of news coverage, instead channel should inform the investigator about it – HC pic.twitter.com/GiOkTGhtli— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) January 18, 2021 In conclusion, the Court held that the media coverage done by the Republic TV and Times Now against Mumbai police in this case is prima facie contemptuous. Some Reporting Of Republic TV & Times Now In SSR Case ‘Prima Facie Contemptuous’, Says Bombay High Court It also observed that the campaign against Mumbai Police of having suppressed facts appears to be “ill-founded”. Reliance was placed on Rhea Chakraborty v. State of Bihar & Ors., where the Supreme Court recorded a prima facie satisfaction that records of the SSR Death case do not prima facie suggest any wrong doing by the Mumbai Police (although obstruction to the Bihar Police team could have been avoided so as not to give rise to any suspicion on the bonafide of the enquiry). Inter alia, the Bench laid down a list of ‘indicative but not exhaustive’ list of reports which tend to cause prejudice to ongoing investigation, that me be read in the reports below: What Kind Of Reporting Amounts To ‘Media Trial’?

Delhi High Court Calls For Meeting For Installation Of PSA Plants By Large Hospitals Having Oxygen Capacity Twice The Normal Requirement
