England beat Wales to win the IRB Junior World Championship 2013

first_imgMonday Jun 24, 2013 England beat Wales to win the IRB Junior World Championship 2013 England Under 20’s won the IRB Junior World Championship after coming from behind to beat Wales in the final in the north west of France yesterday. In the third place playoff, South Africa staged a comeback of their own as they beat New Zealand. Wales led 15-3 at halftime and looked on the way to their first ever JWC title, but failed to capitalise after England went down to 14 men and had a try disallowed shortly before the break.Jack Nowell and Sam Hill tries brought them back into the game before two penalties by Henry Slade extended the lead, earning them a well deserved victory after having been runners up three times in the past.Earlier a repeat of last year’s final saw South Africa come from behind to beat New Zealand in the third place playoff in Vannes. The Baby Blacks were up 21-0 at one stage, before the Baby Boks launched a comeback and won the game 41-24.“For the sixth year in a row, the IRB Junior World Championship has delivered brilliant matches, we’ve seen some magnificent skills on display and fans have witnessed top quality matches with open, running rugby,” said IRB Chairman Bernard Lapasset.IRB Junior Player of the Year 2013While it was disappointment for Wales in the final, young flyhalf Sam Davies was awarded the IRB Junior Player of the Year 2013 title following commanding performances throughout the tournament. He is the first Welshman to win the award, and the first to receive an IRB age grade honour since Gavin Henson was named IRB Young Player of the Year in 2001.“It is an honour, just to see the names of the other people that have had it before me, it makes it extra special. I’m gutted with the result today but this is a bonus picking up this Award,” he said.Elsewhere, France beat Argentina to finish in fifth place, Australia finished seventh after beating Ireland, Samoa defeated Scotland to claim ninth place, and the USA were relegated to the IRB Junior World Trophy after they were beaten by Fiji.Highlights of the final are below, and you can follow the links for the other games, or view allSouth Africa vs New Zealand | France vs Arg & Aus vs Ire | Fiji vs USA & Samoa vs ScotHiglights of the third place playoff between last year’s finalists, South Africa and New Zealand Highlights of France vs Argentina and Australia vs Ireland Highlights of Fiji vs USA and Samoa vs ScotlandADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error World Rugby U20 Championship Related Articles 104 WEEKS AGO Three sensational solo tries the pick of… 105 WEEKS AGO England’s Alfie Barbeary dismissed for dangerous… 156 WEEKS AGO France beat England to win their first ever… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

HR Answers: How to recognize work addiction

first_img continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The growth of technology combined with the idea that we need to work harder to achieve more is a popular concept in the modern workplace. According to a study by Techtalk, 44% of U.S. employees have admitted to checking work emails after 11 p.m. Research by Harvard Business Review also shows the average CEO works 62.5 hours a week—around 21.3 hours above the global baseline of 41.2 hours.With smartphones, computers and apps at our fingertips, we’re able to maintain a constant connection to our work. In theory, these tools should make our workdays shorter and more efficient, but constant distractions and the inability to disconnect can lead to longer work hours and less to show for it.  This has made it increasingly easy to push beyond the 9-5, so here are some pointers on how HR professionals and credit union employees can recognize the difference between committed working habits and work addiction.Signs of Work AddictionAccording to the Bergen Work Addiction Scale, replying ‘often’ or ‘always’ to at least four of the following seven criteria may indicate a work addiction:last_img read more

Dodgers batter Rockies bullpen for 8 runs in 7th inning of a 12-4 win

first_imgThe Rockies pinned their hopes on a heavy offseason investment in their bullpen. They committed $106 million to relievers last winter and will pay more in salary to their bullpen than their starting rotation this season.You don’t always get what you pay for. The Rockies’ bullpen is one of the worst in the majors and the Dodgers have done their part to cement that standing over the past two days. They have scored 23 runs in the first two games of this series, 14 in seven innings against Rockies relievers.Saturday’s bullpen bashing began quietly. With the game tied 4-4, Chris Taylor and Justin Turner singled to start the seventh. Yasmani Grandal hustled to beat out a double play, allowing the go-ahead run to score.“If he doesn’t beat that out, we don’t have that big inning. I think we kind of fed off that,” Kemp said. “I think Grandal knows he’s not the fastest guy out there. But he busted down the line, trying to make something happen. He got a ribbie out of it and we just went from there.”Instead of coming up with two outs and the bases empty, Kemp followed with a two-run home run and the floodgates opened.The Dodgers sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh inning and collected six hits and three walks against three Rockies relievers. When the order came around to him again, Taylor had a two-run triple. Breyvic Valera had a two-run single. Another run scored on a wild pitch.Joc Pederson had a single in the seventh-inning gluttony, one of four hits in the game for him including two home runs.Related Articles Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury PreviousLos Angeles Dodgers left fielder Joc Pederson, left, celebrates with right fielder Yasiel Puig, right, as center fielder Enrique Hernandez follows the pair after the Dodgers retired Colorado Rockies’ Noel Cuevas for the final out in the ninth inning of a baseball game Saturday, June 2, 2018, in Denver.

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski)ExpandDENVER — The sky isn’t falling any more, if it ever was.Now, it’s the rest of the division falling, coming right back to a Dodgers team that survived being painfully mortal for the season’s first 40 games.The Dodgers scored eight runs in the seventh inning Saturday, thoroughly breaking open a tie game and handing the Colorado Rockies a 12-4 defeat. The eight-run inning was the Dodgers’ biggest scoring burst since another eight-run inning on August 16, 2016 in Philadelphia.And the win was the Dodgers’ 12th in their past 16 games. Depending on the outcome of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ game Saturday night, the Dodgers will finish the night 2 or 2 ½ games out of first place in the National League West. It is the closest the Dodgers have been to first place in the division since April 2.

Subscribe here.“It means we’re playing good baseball right now and we made up for a month and a half of not so good baseball,” said Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp who had a two-run home run in Saturday’s big inning. “But we’ve got a long ways to go. I’m sure as we get healthier and healthier we’re going to get better.”At times over the past two months, it seemed like the Dodgers would never get healthy. It still seems that way. But Kemp is an optimist.“I hope so. That’s the plan,” Kemp said. “I think at some point we will be healthy. I pray to God.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts defended the NL West before Saturday’s game. Only two teams in the division (the Rockies and Diamondbacks) have winning records and those two have been sinking towards .500 at a fast rate over the past few weeks. But Roberts said it’s too early to judge how tough the competition is when so many of the teams have been robbed of top players due to injuries.He might have a point. But a third of the way into the season, it’s starting to look like the Dodgers might eventually claim their sixth consecutive division title — even if Kemp’s prayers aren’t answered.
