Widdop stars in high-scoring Dragons comeback

first_imgDragons players were booed off by the 10,174-strong crowd at half time after disintegrating from an early 10-nil lead to trail 28-10 at the break in the face of a determined and free-flowing Knights assault.But in a continuation of the year-long second-half woes, Newcastle virtually failed to emerge from the sheds for the second half as the Dragons rediscovered their mojo and piled on four straight tries of their own.Skipper Widdop was the conductor of the orchestra with his wide array of passes and kicks causing havoc, with a hand in virtually every Dragons try of the match and finishing with four try assists and three line breaks. Winger Jason Nightingale was a key beneficiary with his third hat-trick of the season.Backing up from State of Origin, Josh Dugan was immense with match-highs in metres gained (234) and tackle busts (11) and one of the few Dragons players able to hold his head high even in a horror first half.  His fellow blue Tyson Frizell (four busts, 124 metres) added plenty of sting during the comeback while Leeson Ah Mau (157 metres, five busts, 35 tackles) put in a huge stint in the absence of the suspended Jack de Belin and injured 100-gamer Paul Vaughan, who went off early in the contest.For Newcastle, popular winger Nathan Ross made the most of his shift to fullback with three first-half tries and 220 metres for the game while rookie forward Lachlan Fitzgibbon was excellent early on.The unconvincing win sees the Dragons arrest a worrying two-game losing streak in which they scored just two tries in two weeks and consolidates their top-eight standing while Newcastle missed a chance to put a gap on the last-placed Wests Tigers.Dragons prop Paul Vaughan’s 100th NRL game ended after just three minutes due to a calf strain but it seemed to matter little in the early stages with the Dragons running rings around the 15th-placed Knights.Nightingale scored his 99th and 100th NRL tries inside of 10 minutes as he first cashed in on an overlap against some ragged right-side Newcastle defence then profited from a Tim Lafai offload to Widdop, who grubbered ahead for a 10-nil lead.From there, though, it was all Newcastle as Nathan Ross – moved to fullback with Maroons winger Dane Gagai shifted to centre – bagged a hat-trick in the space of 11 minutes.His first came from a dummy half scoot after a quick Lachlan Fitzgibbon play-the-ball in the 20th minute, his second just three minutes later from an awful Lafai defensive mis-read and his third in the 33rd minute when he scooped up a Hame Sele dropped ball 20 metres from his own line to run the length and score.In between Fitzgibbon charged over for one of his own from a flat ball at the line and the team’s fifth of the half came when the Dragons allowed a bomb to hit the ground and an astute Sione Mata’utia flung it out to Brendan Elliott to gallop away and score.A penalty goal shortly before the break made it the margin three converted tries at half time.That was as good as it got for the Knights as a re-energised Dragons made all the second-half running. A try to Joel Thompson in the 47th minute, running onto a deft Widdop grubber, kicked off the comeback.It was on in earnest five minutes later when a huge set with the ball featuring plenty of offloads finished with Dugan carrying four defenders over from dummy-half.Nightingale completed his hat-trick in the 58th minute running onto a lovely Widdop cut-out with the skipper’s sideline conversion locking up the scores.When Kurt Mann jinked his way through the line in the 67th minute the Dragons finally reclaimed the lead 32-28 and almost went further ahead shortly after but Nene Macdonald’s try was disallowed due to an offside player.With the clock running down the Knights almost stole it at the death but Mitch Barnett couldn’t handle a sharp face-ball from Lamb at the Dragons line and the Dragons held on for a four-point win.St George Illawarra 32 (Nightingale 3, Thompson, Dugan, Mann tries; Widdop 4 goals) defeated Newcastle Knights 28 (Ross 3, Fitzgibbon, Elliott tries; Lamb 3 goals) at UOW Jubilee Oval. Half time: Knights 28-10. Crowd: 10,174NRL unofficial points: 3 Gareth Widdop. 2 Josh Dugan. 1 Leeson Ah Mau.last_img read more

Breeding a New Generation of Liberian Intellectuals

first_imgAlex Devine, founder of Devine Event Consultancy and organizer of the Montserrado County Inter-High School Debate competition. In 2015, Alex Devine had a dream – a competition aimed at breeding a new generation of Liberian intellectuals who will go beyond normal classroom activities to discuss issues with logic and fact.He also dreamt of getting rid of the ‘Super Friday’ phenomenon among high school students, an unsanctioned day set aside by students to go out having fun including getting drunk and other harmful vices instead of being in school during class time, an act that was creeping into the already broken education system, and destroying it.But dreams are just dreams if they are not translated into action, something Alex couldn’t do due to him actively pursuing his acting career, and two other reasons, he said.Firstly, he lacked the finances to organize such an intellectual competition, which killed his ambition.Secondly, because of his budding acting career, he could not, and was unwilling to give enough attention to organizing the competition.Despite his unwillingness to pursue this dream of his, his mind was disturbed day and night for neglecting this unique call to serve his people.Still, Alex was not willing to sacrifice his career, meager resources and time to make this dream a reality.But as fate would have it, after an interaction with some students who were out gallivanting on a beach during class time revealed their poor intellectual capacities, Alex started to rethink his previous reluctance to give his dream a try.At home later that fateful day, Alex decided to drop his acting ambition and started planning the first edition of the Montserrado County Inter-High School Debate featuring over 30 county high schools.Sadly, Alex’s previous issue with his financial capacity to run the debate reared its ugly head. But his renewed vigor coupled with a competitive nature honed over years of pursuing his acting career, wouldn’t let him quit.In 2015, Alex launched the Montserrado County Inter-High School Debate to rave reviews. The biggest boost to the debate competition came during the final between St. Teresa Convent and Len Miller High School, which Len Miller eventually won.From that point on, the Montserrado Inter-High School Debate competition made headways among schools, and stated attracting students eager to build their intellectual capacities.Yet, raising funds to run the debate still remains a major challenge, despite the success of the competition.Alex said: “Although I am still experiencing financial troubles like in the past, I will not retire until I see to it that our students’ intellectual capacities are fully built, which will make them critical thinkers, and the people who will solve problems with critical thought to put this nation in a better place.“You see, when the intellectual capacities of feature leaders of this nation are built, unlike past leaders, they will make decisions about the country based on analytical skills, taking into consideration the aftermath of their actions.“Liberia is way back not because of poverty, but decisions made about this country years back by leaders were not based on analytical thinking, when one considers the fact that our leaders continue to give concession companies 86 years or more for little or nothing for the country’s resources.“When students’ intellectual capacities are built, which comes along with critical thinking, they will develop the ability to confront problems – complex problems, and to design solutions to them.“The ability to think critically is the most empowering thing that can happen to an individual, which I want Liberian children, the future leaders, to have,” he said.Alex noted that when he considers Liberian children, he sees them as children with a bright future; and given the opportunity, they can be like other children in the world, which he is trying to ensure.“I want to change the stereotype that Liberian school-going children only know pleasure, which is not true. The problem here is that they lack the environment to explore their potential,” Alex said.However, despite the success of the debate competition, Alex said people have not changed the overwhelming narrative that portrays Liberian youth as intellectually inferior.“It is about time they need to change this kind of thinking,” he said, adding: “These kids are eager to learn regardless of the challenges they have to go through.”Alex said he plans to decentralize the debate competition next year to the 15 political subdivisions of the country to make sure that each Liberian student is assured of exceptional intellectual and critical thinking abilities to confront complex problems, ask the right questions, and come up with workable solutions.Now in its third edition, the success of the national high school debate is remarkable, as it has built the intellectual capacities of young Liberians like Nathan Gbelee, Olivia Livingstone, one time MVP, Fadilla A. Shaibani, 2nd edition’s Most Eloquent Speaker, and Satta F. Sheriff, a child rights advocate, who won the Most Valuable Player that the same year, just to name a few.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement –last_img read more

Real Madrid set sights on Arsenal and Liverpool target

first_img Alvaro Morata in action for Juventus Real Madrid are keen on re-signing former striker Alvaro Morata, the Arsenal and Liverpool target.The Spanish international has scored nine goals in 31 appearances for Juventus this season after joining the Italian giants from Madrid for £14.5m last summer.According to Tuttosport.com, there is a clause in Morata’s contract which offers Real the chance to recapture the forward in the next two summer transfer markets for a fee of around £21m.Liverpool and Arsenal are also rumoured to be interested in the 22-year-old and were in the running to sign him before he opted to join Juventus.But Real will have the first buy-back option if Juventus agree to sell so the Spanish side could scupper any potential move to England. 1last_img read more

Always keen to champion local business she uses as much local produce as possible.After a busy summer of hosting BBQs and events for local businesses in Donegal and Sligo, Finn still has some availability for catering across the coming months in the run up to the Festive Season.Finn offers a range of catering options – from cooking and serving in house from your home or business or a fully packed buffet of hot and cold options for collection or delivery.She has varied menus to suit every budget and group number and is always open to exploring new ideas if you have something particular in mind.As a coeliac herself she is very conscious of dietary restrictions and always strives to ensure everyone has something delicious to enjoy!

No. 24 Georgia Tech comes up short

first_imgJay Davis threw two long touchdown passes to Brian Clark, including an 80-yard go-ahead score in the fourth quarter, and Garland Heath’s interception in the end zone with 26 seconds left protected the lead as North Carolina State outlasted No. 24 Georgia Tech 17-14 on Thursday night in Atlanta. Georgia Tech had a first-and-goal at the 2 with 33 seconds left. Reggie Ball fired a pass in the end zone that hit the hands of receiver Calvin Johnson, who was in the air as he was hit by Marcus Hudson. Heath grabbed the ball and got two feet down before going out the back of the end zone. Georgia Tech’s Travis Bell missed a 27-yard field goal attempt early in the game and then was wide right again from 24 yards in the fourth quarter – the two shortest misses of his career. Bell has missed five consecutive field goal attempts over three games after missing only two attempts as a freshman in 2004. One play after Bell’s second miss, Davis threw over the Tech defense to Clark, who outran the secondary for the 80-yard touchdown play and a 17-14 lead with 7:39 to play. Open season: Michigan State coach John L. Smith says he’s holding an open competition for the kicking job this week after junior John Goss botched field-goal attempts from 23 and 37 yards in a 34-31 overtime loss to Michigan. Asked if he’s worried about sending Goss into a mental tailspin, Smith didn’t exactly offer a therapeutic Oprah-like response. “Psychologically, I couldn’t care less,” he said. “You either toughen up and become a kicker and become more mentally tough or somebody else will kick. That’s the way I approach it.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Johnson had 10 receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Wolfpack (2-2, 1-2) from snapping a six-game losing streak in Atlantic Coast Conference games and a four-game losing streak against the Yellow Jackets (3-2, 1-2). The Wolfpack won in Atlanta for the first time since 1988. Clark, who had only three catches this season because of an ankle injury, had four receptions for 148 yards and the two touchdowns.

LARGE CROWD FOR LAUNCH OF JOHN O’DONNELL’S ELECTION BID

first_imgA section of the large crowd which turned up for John O’Donnell’s campaign launch in Termon.A crowd of more than 350 people gathered in the Lagoon in Termon for the launch of John O’Donnell’s campaign as an Independent in the upcoming local elections. A native of Kilmacrennan, John is the son of the late Councillor Eddie O’Donnell and his wife Anne. A popular figure among young and old, O’Donnell used the launch to outline his vision for the people of Donegal.His campaign centres on addressing key areas which he feels successive governments have neglected. Election candidate John O’DonnellThese include facilitating business and entrepreneurship, protecting people and services, creating a viable future for farmers, developing tourism and infrastructure, restoring and renewing communities and empowering young people through education, training and employment.Chairing proceedings for the evening was Letterkenny based solicitor, Daireann Gibson.John’s mother, former councillor Anne O’Donnell, addressed the crowd in a touching tribute to both her late husband and her son.John also received a resounding endorsement from his uncle Daniel O’Donnell, (a brother of the late Councillor Eddie O’Donnell), who offered his nephew his full support for the campaign. Commenting on the success of the launch, John O’Donnell said: “I’m running as an Independent because I’m disappointed by the way successive governments have neglected and ignored the citizens they represent.“And judging by the crowd that came to the launch – young and old from all walks of life – there are a lot of people out there who share my frustration. I’m now looking forward to getting on the campaign trail, to meeting the electorate and finding out what they need from me. Our mobile office will visit your town in the coming weeks and we want to hear from you“.A past pupil of Kilmacrennan N.S. and Mulroy College (formerly Milford Vocational School), John grew up in a busy political household, watching his parents work tirelessly for their constituents.This grounding in political life gave him a unique insight into the importance of strong political representation at a local level and he wants to see a return to an open door policy for constituents.Coupled with this, O’Donnell has a wealth of national and international business experience that belies the fact that he is still only in his early 30’s. He now plans to bring this drive, energy and enthusiasm to the political sphere – something, he believes, is severely lacking. For further information please contact John O’Donnell’s campaign office on 074 91 39043 or speak to John directly on 086 809 5820.LARGE CROWD FOR LAUNCH OF JOHN O’DONNELL’S ELECTION BID was last modified: February 11th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:election launchJohn O’Donnelllast_img read more
