Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_img TAGS: Exeter ChiefsNorthampton Saints England Women were also celebrating after their 35-3 victory. Emily Scarratt led the way with 20 points and wing Natasha Brennan scored a try with her first touch in international rugby.The SinnersRisk managementA Saint just a couple of weeks ago, Scotland stand-off Duncan Weir is a Sinner this time after a moment of madness cost his side what would have been a valuable try. Leading France 14-9 in the 47th minute, Scotland were attacking deep in their opponents’ 22 and just needed to keep their composure and patience in order to score. However, Weir opted to throw a risky, long miss-pass to Alex Dunbar, rather than going for Matt Scott inside him. France’s Yoann Huget read the pass, intercepted and raced the length of the pitch to score.Don’t do it! Duncan Weir gets set to make the fateful passInstead of leading 19-9 or, probably, 21-9, against a fragile French side, Scotland found themselves 16-14 down.Weir redeemed himself a little by kicking a tough penalty to restore Scotland’s lead with 61 minutes gone, but he missed another chance later, leaving France within touching distance in the closing minutes. Replacement lock Tim Swinson was penalised for not releasing the tackled player and Jean-Marc Doussain kicked the penalty which allowed France to steal a 19-17 victory.Flawed and flooredWarren Gatland and the Wales coaches deserve some criticism this week, after their team – packed with such potent attacking forces as George North and Alex Cuthbert – failed to score a try in a match for the second time during this Six Nations Championship. Their tactics against England were flawed, as they kicked repeatedly to a back three who are full of counter-attacking confidence, allowing them to get on the front foot in the game. If it was the execution that was poor rather than the plan, the coaches should have hauled the half-backs off sooner, instead of letting the 53rd minute injury suffered by scrum-half Rhys Webb prompt one change and waiting until the 62nd minute to bring Dan Biggar on for Rhys Priestland. Gatland’s decision to select Jonathan Davies so soon after his return from long-term injury also backfired, as the centre looked rusty and out of touch. EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – MARCH 08: Duncan Weir of Scotland passes the ball which resulted in France wing Yoann Huget interception the pass and breaking away for a try during the RBS Six Nations match between Scotland and France at Murrayfield Stadium on March 8, 2014 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Catch him while you can: Brian O’Driscoll played a starring role in his record-breaking penultimate Test matchBy Katie FieldThe SaintsBrilliant BODOnly one man could head up the Saints list this week – the irrepressible Brian O’Driscoll, who became the world’s most-capped Test player on Saturday when he made his 140th international appearance. His deft touches, breaks and vision lit up the Aviva Stadium in his last match there for Ireland before his retirement. He might have thought it was “a bit of a joke” to get the Man of the Match award for his 60 minutes on the pitch, but no one else did. O’Driscoll once again left everyone with nothing but good memories. He is a player who will be talked about for decades to come.The Stuart dynastyEngland won their first Triple Crown for 11 years when they beat Wales 29-18 at Twickenham on Sunday and much of the credit for their good form this spring must go to head coach Stuart Lancaster. The England boss has rebuilt the squad from the doldrums of January 2012 and his leadership skills, the loyalty he shows to his players and his thoughtful attention to detail have empowered the team to go out and play with confidence and without fear. England have only an outside chance of winning this year’s Six Nations as we head for the last weekend, but Lancaster is creating a team that can challenge for trophies in the coming years.Mr Cool: Lancaster is proving his worthKicking perfectionWhile Wales struggled to cling onto England’s coat tails at Twickenham, one player kept them in touch. Leigh Halfpenny put on as perfect a display of goal-kicking as you will ever see. It’s not just that he landed all six penalty chances England gave him, but four of those were from close to half-way, mostly towards the outer edges of the pitch, so they were devilishly difficult kicks even in great conditions. No other kicker could have turned all of those chances into points.Fine finishersAway from the Six Nations, it was LV= Cup semi-finals weekend and two players grabbed the headlines. George Pisi of Northampton helped the Saints come from 7-6 down at half-time against Saracens to win 26-7 by scoring a second-half hat-trick.Bath’s Leroy Houston also deserves a mention for scoring the fastest try in the competition’s history, charging in after just 30 seconds against Exeter Chiefs. Bath led at the break but lost 22-19.Trend-settersA trio of individuals stood out as England enjoyed a clean sweep of victories over Wales at the weekend , with the U20s, Women and Sevens teams winning as well as the senior side. The U20s set the tone with an astonishing 67-7 triumph over the Welsh. Head coach Nick Walshe described the performance as “not far off perfect” and flanker Gus Jones put his hand up for the biggest plaudits by scoring four of England’s ten tries. Final farceIt seems silly every year that the structure of the LV= Cup means the semi-finals are played the weekend before the final. There is no time for any momentum and excitement to build up, never mind for fans to make their travel arrangements.However, travel plans are not something that will need to trouble Exeter Chiefs fans following their side’s semi-final win over Bath. The organisers of the competition had already committed to play the final at Exeter’s Sandy Park home, which means the Chiefs will have home advantage over Northampton Saints. No club should get such a big helping hand when silverware is at stake.last_img read more

Study Shows Pork in the Morning Can Lead to Less Snacking…

first_img Study Shows Pork in the Morning Can Lead to Less Snacking Later Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Study Shows Pork in the Morning Can Lead to Less Snacking Later SHARE According to a study released by the University of Missouri – teens who eat a high-protein lean pork breakfast may consume fewer sugary snacks later in the day. The 12-week study suggests that eating a protein-rich breakfast that includes ham or pork sausage reduces daily hunger, increases daily fullness, improves morning blood sugar control and leads to less late-day snacking for teenagers. National Pork Board President Conley Nelson says the Pork Checkoff-funded study further validates the important role of high-protein lean pork in a balanced diet. He says parents can feel good about including pork as part of the morning meal because it provides healthy fuel to support their teenagers’ busy day while reducing the urge to reach for empty-calorie afternoon snacks. The teens in the study who ate a high-protein breakfast experienced a decreased intake of about 400 calories later in the day. Those who skipped breakfast and those who ate the same number of calories for breakfast – but consumed high-carbohydrate, ready-to-eat cereals – did not reduce daily intake.Study lead Dr. Heather Leidy notes nutritionists always tout the importance of breakfast. Now – Leidy says we understand just how powerful choosing to eat lean protein like pork sausage or ham at breakfast can be – especially for those who typically skip breakfast. Based on this research – Leidy says taking the time each morning to eat a healthy breakfast – one consisting of about 40-percent of calories from carbohydrates and 40-percent of calories from protein – leads to reduced snacking later in the day – thanks to the satiating effects of protein early in the day.These new findings on teens who skip breakfast is consistent with past research with adult men – which demonstrated the benefits of including lean pork in three daily meals as a way to reduce late-night desires to eat, increase feelings of fullness and decrease distracting thoughts about food. The new study also is consistent with a similar study conducted by the same University of Missouri researchers that suggests a breakfast high in protein significantly improves appetite control and reduces unhealthy evening snacking for overweight or obese adolescent females. Leidy says increasing evidence suggests that incorporating lean pork in to the diet can help with appetite control and body weight management – while also providing key nutrients that growing teens and adults alike need in their daily diet.

No Need to Wait Until July 15, Start Working with FSA…

first_img Facebook Twitter No Need to Wait Until July 15, Start Working with FSA NowFarmers and other ag stakeholders met with Governor Holcomb and Senator Young last week to discuss this trying season in an attempt to get clarity on what options are available for farmers. As for federal assistance, Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler says it’s a very defined process that begins with you communicating with your local Farm Service Agency office.“The real designation that we have to look at is is there a 30 percent loss in production? That doesn’t necessarily mean acres. It could just be, simply, a 30 percent loss of our bushels of grain to come off, for example. The other part of this that works into it, it’s not just for corn and soybeans. It’s also for any crop; it doesn’t matter what crop. So, if we’ve got forages where we’ve got loss reduction. Maybe we’ve got some areas in the state that could have some reduced melon.”Kettler says the deadline to get information to your local FSA is July 15th, but the process really needs to start now to get the ball rolling on potential disaster assistance. Kettler says that FSA has an emergency committee to review county applications. The sooner they get them, the better.“So once those counties report that up to the state FSA and this emergency committee, then we will work with state FSA, Steve Brown and his team, and the governor’s office will look at that then to say, ‘Okay. Do we need to send a letter to Secretary Perdue and USDA to make known where we’ve got our issues and our concerns?’”That letter would be to request disaster designation for agriculture as some states have already done. Kettler says having the data to FSA prior to sending that letter is essential and that’s why he’s calling on all farmers to begin working with your local FSA office now if you haven’t already to submit your planted acres and prevent plant acres.
