(Photo by Hannah Johnston/Getty Images) Flying Scotsman: Tim Visser takes some time out for a lowdown on life off the rugby pitchScotland’s wing on Rees, roundabouts and revenge. By Sarah MockfordRUGBY WORLD: Who would play you in a film of your life?TIM VISSER: The guy from The Hangover. Bradley Cooper. I think he’s brilliant and when I first arrived at Newcastle I had hair like him.RW: Any nicknames?TV: Vis. Scotland’s old defence coach Graham Steadman thought my name was Billy, so people called me that. We now have Billy McGinty as a coach, so that’s stopped.RW: What do they call your brother, Sep?TV: Mini Vis or Young Vis. He says they call him Justin Credible! RW: What’s your guilty pleasure?TV: Domino’s Pizza. I try to stay away from it, but after a game at the weekend I get one and if you order by phone they then start sending you texts with deals. On Tuesdays they do two for one and it’s really hard not to be tempted.RW: Any phobias?TV: I hate snakes – they are horrible. My brother is scared of sharks.RW: And bugbears?TV: Drivers, especially in the UK. People don’t understand roundabouts over here. They get in the wrong lane or don’t look. My wife is really bad, so I always have to drive. Roundabouts have been a big part of the traffic system in Holland for a long time, so people seem to understand them better over there.RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?TV: Invisibility. I could do incredible stuff and get away with it. I could just stand by my brother’s bed as he was going to sleep, then become visible and scare him.RW: Any superstitions?TV: I don’t like to shave before a game and I don’t like to be the last out of the changing rooms.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard on the pitch? TV: I played with Mike McCarthy at Newcastle and he makes funny noises on the pitch. Even now playing against him, I can hear him squawking – anything to throw off the opposition. Whether it’s ADHD or some sort of disorder – he’s just so weird! He’s a great guy to be around.RW: Who are the jokers in the squad?TV: At Edinburgh, Richie Rees is a 29-year-old in a 12-year-old’s body with a 15-year-old’s craic! He never stops. In the Scotland squad, Ryan Grant is quite funny. He’s very dry. RW: What about practical jokes? TV: Netani Talei is always doing stuff  – tying shoelaces together, hiding people’s clothes in the ceiling space, letting tyres down. Once he’d tied the laces together so tight that my boots broke, so I took his scrum cap and cut a hole in the top. He ran out for training with a bit of his Afro sticking out of the top! When he realised he wasn’t amused – it was his lucky scrum cap!RW: What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?TV: Nineties music. When you have to sing on the bus, my go-to tune is by the Backstreet Boys – I Want It That Way. It’s the only song I can remember the words to.RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?TV: I don’t think I’d like to be stuck in a lift with anybody – definitely not the front-row boys. Geoff Cross is quite sweaty and he’s touchy-feely.RW: What’s the silliest thing you’ve bought?TV: A guitar because I’ve never learned to play it. I obviously don’t like it or I’d get into it. I also bought my wife a Yorkshire terrier, which is just a ball of fur. I’ve got a German shepherd- cross and if I walk them together it looks strange.RW: Who are your best and worst room-mates?TV: The best is Nick De Luca – we’re on the same level and chill out. The worst is Geoff Cross. I love him but he can be too much. He’ll strip naked and lie on his bed – or worse, lie on your bed.RW: How would you like to be remembered?TV: As a great finisher – it’s probably the only way I’m likely to be remembered!———————————————————————————————————————————————–last_img read more

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_img The SaintsTame TigerMeasured and diplomatic are not words you might readily associate with the Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill. A fiery player in his day, he has shown more than the odd flash of temper as a coach, but when he found himself in the eye of the storm created by Martin Castrogiovanni’s outburst after round three of the European Champions Cup, he did not take the bait and his low-key response continued when the row was brought up again this weekend.A week ago, after the Tigers hosted Toulon, Castro launched a foul-mouthed attack on Cockerill and the way Leicester handled his 2013 departure from the club. When reporters told Cockerill what the prop had said the Leicester man’s response was: “One day he’ll realise that it’s just sport. One day we’ll have a beer together and smile about it.”When Cockerill was asked about the row again this weekend after the return match in Toulon, he simply said: “I like him – it’s just that he doesn’t seem to like me.” The Tiger wouldn’t take the bait. Keep calmThe Ospreys went to Racing Metro needing a win to stay in contention in Pool Five and they might have grabbed one if their half-backs had just played it all a bit cooler.With the score still at 0-0, Rhys Webb foolishly stuck out an arm across Juan Imhoff’s neck as he ran past, which led to ten minutes in the sin-bin. Fortunately for Webb, Racing only scored three points while he was off, so it could have been worse.With 60 minutes gone Dan Biggar butchered a try-scoring chance. He made a lovely break from his own half, his kick ahead parried off an opponent and back into his arms but he tried to avoid contact by flipping the ball straight on to the two men outside him and the pass went astray. If he had held onto the returning ball, taken the contact and then passed, it would have been a certain try. As it was, Racing won 18-14 and the Ospreys are effectively out of Champions Cup contention. TAGS: Northampton SaintsOspreysWasps LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Double treble: Samu Manoa was one of two Saints to score a hat-trick this weekHatful of hat-tricksNorthampton Saints walloped Benetton Treviso 67-0 with some fantastic flowing rugby – aided by some dubious defence from the Italians – and both Ken Pisi and Samu Manoa scored a hat-trick in the trouncing.They weren’t the only ones to cross the whitewash three times this weekend. Matt Banahan set the trend on Friday in Bath’s 32-12 win over Montpellier in Pool Four of the Champions Cup and Tom Prydie scored three of Newport Gwent Dragons 11 tries in their 69-17 win over Bucharest Wolves in the European Challenge Cup.No one from Wasps managed a hat-trick but they did score seven tries between them as they beat Castres 44-17 in their Adams Park swansong before their move to Coventry. It was quite some farewell for the fans who live near the High Wycombe ground.Who says we only get try-fests when the grounds are hard? There were plenty of tries, and a few tribulations, as teams tried to stay in contention during the fourth round of European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup matches. Sharp BladeWhat a first start Caolin Blade enjoyed for Connacht. Wearing the province’s No 9 jersey for the first time, the 20 year old scored two tries as Connacht came back from 11 points down to win 29-17 in Bayonne.That European Challenge Cup Pool Two win leaves them just two points behind Exeter Chiefs and with a good chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals. Plaudits also go to skipper and outside-half Miah Nikora, who kicked five penalties and two conversions, including the winning one.center_img Baker puts his foot in itPitch invaders can be annoying, but USA Sevens player Perry Baker overstepped the mark when he kicked a particularly idiotic supporter who had run onto the pitch during their match against South Africa at the HSBC Sevens World Series in Port Elizabeth.The invader was already on the ground, apparently after tackling Baker, when the player booted him, but Baker realised the error of his ways later and Tweeted: “I would like to apologize for my actions. I hope that my greatest fan is well. Boy they do love their rugby down here.”Watch the incident for yourself here. The SinnersLee lets Munster inHe was a Saint last week and still produced some excellent play for Clermont Auvergne against Munster this weekend, but Fritz Lee was involved in a couple of costly errors which allowed Munster to grab a late, late bonus point and stay alive in Pool One – something which might come back to haunt Clermont at some stage.First, Lee spilled a high pass from Morgan Parra when he had the line at his mercy and a four-man overlap outside him midway through the second half.With 74 minutes on the clock, Clermont were 26-9 up and looked set to send Munster home empty-handed, but Lee threw a pass which the Irish hooker Duncan Casey intercepted to score a try. Keatley converted and, a few minutes later, kicked the critical penalty which was conceded by Lee at a ruck around the 10-metre line.Cost-Lee: He was brilliant at times, but Fritz Lee also made some key mistakes Keeping the dream aliveMunster don’t like getting knocked out of Europe and Ian Keatley helped them stay in contention for this season’s Champions Cup with an injury-time penalty which earned them at bonus point at Clermont Auvergne.The Irish side’s hooker, Duncan Casey, scored a try close to the posts in the dying minutes which Keatley converted to bring Munster back to 26-16 down and Keatley coolly slotted a 40-metre penalty with the last kick of the game to make it 26-19 and give Munster a bonus point which keeps them in the hunt in Pool One, three points behind Saracens and four behind Clermont Auvergne. Seeing the funny side: Cockerill has reacted well to Castro’s outburst The Salon of ShameAfter pointing out Joe Webber’s daft hairstyle last week, there’s another player who needs a new look, in my opinion. Step forward Ian Madigan, who has taken Danny Care’s “high and tight” and added an unwanted element of flop.Looking good? Ian Madigan sporting his own distinctive stylelast_img read more

Censorship has no chance against rugby muscle

first_img Organisation September 21, 2015 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Censorship has no chance against rugby muscle As the Rugby World Cup gets under way in England, Reporters Without Borders reveals the reasons for the correlation between a country’s skill in rugby and its respect for media freedom. The truth can be found in both numbers and what happens on the ground. The countries that are best at rugby also have the freest press. The nations that have mastered the scrum, tackle and drop kick are also those whose journalists are the most skilled at investigative reporting and features.The correlation is undeniable if you compare the list of the teams participating in the Rugby World Cup in England and the Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index. Hats off to the All Blacks and Wallabies.Of the 20 countries taking part in the tournament, 19 are in the top half of our 2015 press freedom index, which ranks a total of 180 countries. Furthermore, nine of the world’s ten best rugby nations are in the press freedom index’s top 50. New Zealand, the current champion and first in the IRB ranking, is 6th in the press freedom index, while Canada is 8th and Ireland is 11th. France is both far from being favourite in the rugby tournament and also some way down in the index (38th), like Italy (73rd). Meanwhile Georgia (69th) and Fiji (93rd) will scarcely have a look-in, according to the bookmakers.But is it the oval ball that favours media freedom, or is it the fourth estate that guarantees the quality of the sport of gentlemen? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? You wouldn’t have to ask this kind of scientific question about soccer. Countries with a really bad record on media freedom took part in the 2014 Football World Cup in Brazil. They included Iran (173rd), Russia (152nd), Mexico (148th), Cameroon (133rd), Honduras (132nd), Algeria (119th) and Colombia (128th). There’s clearly something special about rugby.Let’s be serious. Rational reasons can be found for the positive correlation between rugby and media freedom. Firstly, rugby isn’t played (or is rarely played) in the countries that get a red card for violence against journalists. North Korea, Eritrea, Turkmenistan and China are more into dark prison cells than freewheeling rugby scrums. In Syria, Somalia and Libya, you’re more likely to hear gunshots than the smack of a leather ball. In Saudi Arabia, they use leather to make whips for lashing journalists, not to make balls for sports.Secondly, analysis of the economic performance of the participating nations offers a more practical indicator. Rugby is played in the world’s most developed countries. Its British upper-class origins probably have something to do with this. As Reporters Without Borders noted when it released the 2015 press freedom index, per capita GDP correlates positively with media freedom (a correlation coefficient of 0.41).In other words, although culture is an important variable, the richer the country the more it is likely to respect its journalists and freedom of expression. So there is a correlation, albeit apparently only an indirect one, between letting a rugby ball loose on the pitch and letting journalists work freely.

Teacher arrested after two students he was having sex with told his wife

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A Florida science teacher was arrested after two students he was having separate sexual relationships with realized what was going on and told his wife, according to documents in the case reviewed by ABC News.Corey French, 30, was charged with unlawful sexual activity with certain minors and unlawful intercourse with a minor — at his house, the school and one of the girl’s stepmother’s house, according to a school district investigative report released this week.One of the victims was 16 and the other 17 when they were sleeping with French, law enforcement officials said in a statement released in September.In a subsequent court appearance, French pleaded not guilty and was released on bail.The pair of now former students at Neptune Beach’s Duncan Fletcher High School refused to press charges against French, and he resigned from his position at school in May. The charges remain pending and French’s next court appearance is scheduled for next month.French’s attorney, Melinda Patterson, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the case from ABC News, but she previously told the Florida Times-Union newspaper that French denied having sexual relationships with the two young women.“He is maintaining his innocence across the board,” Patterson told the newspaper.A spokesman for the State Attorney’s office told ABC News that “this is an active case and we are unable to comment at this time.”After learning that they both slept with French, the students contacted French’s wife in March 2018 and told her everything, as well as providing her with a photos and screenshots to back up their story, according to police and school authorities.In one photo, according to the school district report, her husband is standing in the doorway of the couple’s bedroom in boxer shorts. In another photo referenced in the report, one of the teen’s is allegedly pictured in a negligee in French’s bathroom.French’s wife contacted the school district, which contacted police.“The girls said they were upset because Mr. French made a comment about not divorcing his wife and said they were working on the relationship,” an investigator wrote in a Duval County School District report on the matterIn March, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Special Assault Unit launched an investigation after the Duval County School Board informed them of possible sex crimes involving French.One of the young women’s sexual relationship lasted “on again, off again” with French for three years, according to the school district report. The other teen’s sexual relationship began in the spring of her senior year and lasted until the fall.“It was revealed that both victims had consensual sexual relations with French while he was an active teacher employed at Fletcher High School between the years of 2015 and 2017,” police said in the statement.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
