The awkward list of 11 top players who have never crossed the whitewash for their countries

first_imgWednesday Nov 4, 2020 The awkward list of 11 top players who have never crossed the whitewash for their countries The longer a player’s career is, the chances are that they will somehow manage to score a try at some point. Whether it is a pick and go, a crash ball from close range or simply being in the right place at the right time to drop over the line, tries do not need to be scored from 50 metres out and neither do they have to be pretty.ADVERTISEMENTBut five-pointers have somehow eluded a select group with over 60 caps for their country, and unsurprisingly, props and locks dominate the list.Mike RossThough he was a member of a successful Ireland side that won the Six Nations in 2014 and 2015, the 61-cap former tighthead Mike Ross is his country’s most capped player to never cross the whitewash.Jean CondomFrance and Biarritz’s lock during the 1980s Jean Condom is the first of many second-rows to appear on this list.Dan VickermanADVERTISEMENTAustralia’s Dan Vickerman was a member of the squad that reached the 2003 Rugby World Cup final, starting in the 90-8 victory over Romania en route to the final, but that was not enough for the 63-cap lock to score.Allan JacobsenA try in a non-cap Barbarians match in 2005 meant Allan Jacobsen did actually score in a Scotland shirt during his ten-year, 65-cap Scotland career, but he never managed one in an official fixture.Paul JamesADVERTISEMENTAs a player who was more renowned for his insuperable scrummaging than anything else, Wales’ 66-cap loosehead Paul James was never on the scoresheet in red.Bradley DaviesBeing a hard-running forward that suited Warren Gatland’s direct and physical style of rugby, it is surprising that Ospreys lock Bradley Davies has never scored in his 66-cap career.Quintin GeldenhuysItaly have not necessarily been famed for blowing their opponents away with tries in victory or defeat, and that is perhaps why 67-cap second-row Quintin Geldenhuys never managed one himself.Joe MarlerEngland’s Joe Marler may have never managed a five pointer for England over the course of his 71 caps, but it is still within his power to change that as he is still part of the current England squad (for reconditioning).Luke CharterisThe 6ft 9ins Luke Charteris was of course famed for dominating the lineout during his 74-cap Wales career, but his inability to cross the line may shock some.Salvatore PeruginiAnother Italian high up in this list, which is perhaps understandable coming from a lower ranked tier one nation, former loosehead Salvatore Perugini previously held the record for the most caps, 83, without amassing any points.Owen FranksDespite playing 108 Tests for the All Blacks, winning two Rugby World Cups and being part of one of the most free-scoring sides in rugby history, Owen Franks remarkably never scored a try.Though tighthead props are not necessarily famed for their try-scoring prowess, it is surprising nonetheless seeing as his long standing front row partner Tony Woodcock even bagged a try in the 2011 RWC final.LATEST VIDEO FROM RUGBYDUMP BLITZ Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Lattice house is located in a new suburb on the outskirts of Jammu city in north-western India. Its context is symptomatic of the nature of urbanization in many small Indian cities, growing at a pace quicker than that of government/municipal intervention. Where informal settlements and private need based developments begin to shape the rapidly urbanising landscape. And formal planning strategies are mere responses to the new and informal settlements.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerBuilding in a context like this lacking a distinct contextual urban fabric (besides the infrastructure pylons) the project attempts to be a sharp urban marker visible from a distance, its material singularity in sharp contrast to the placelessness of the surrounding developments.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house is broken into a series of horizontal bands mimicking the incremental nature of growth of the neighbouring buildings, the architectural form of which is a mere derivative of changing space requirements of a family over a period of time. These bands hence became a kind of building block on our site, moving in or out in response to the light requirements of the spaces they encompass.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThe façade of the house is also a response to the climatic severity of the region which experiences extremely hot and dry weather for 8 months of the year and hence the horizontal bands of vertical wood lattice screens act as light filters.Save this picture!ElevationEach of the two levels in the building is to be used by separate families. Programmatically the house is structured by the clients lifestyle which involves a lot of entertaining and hence the kitchen becomes the centre of the plan flanked by the living/dining on one side and the lawn on the other. The private functions of bedrooms are placed to the rear making the collective programs of living, dining and cooking, happen as a seamless space towards the front opening out into the lawn. All programs whether private or public open into side or front garden spaces.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerProject gallerySee allShow lessZgharta House / platauSelected ProjectsHA-HA Apartment / ninkipen!Selected Projects Share Year:  Photographs CopyAbout this officeSameep Padora & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJammuWoodHousesIndiaPublished on April 21, 2015Cite: “Lattice House / Sameep Padora & Associates” 20 Apr 2015.

Raíces Borikén Collective says ‘Decolonize Puerto Rico!’

first_imgBoston — Blasting bomba, merengue and salsa music, and chanting, “Cancel the debt!” the Raíces Borikén Collective fired up the blistering cold streets of Boston on Dec. 17, demanding “Decolonize Puerto Rico!” Patricia Chali’Inaru Dones of the United Confederation of Taíno People led the militant action, which blocked major downtown streets.Protesters were outraged at the U.S. government’s deadly neglect of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico and Wall Street’s unnatural disaster of bankruptcy administration. They gathered in Plaza Ramón Emeterio Betances, named for the inspirer of Puerto Rico’s “Grito de Lares” armed uprising for independence in 1868.Ernesto Eroc Arroyo welcomed the hundreds gathered in the heart of Boston’s Puerto Rican community, Villa Victoria. “Where I grew up, over there on the third floor,” recalled Arroyo, “was born the Puerto Rican struggle to block bulldozers and stop racist ‘urban renewal.’ Villa Victoria was a victory for decolonization.”Jasmine Gómez described Raíces Borikén Collective as “artists, activists and organizers, the majority of us women and queer, who work through education, culture and direct action to dismantle the imperialist, white-supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal system that has kept Puerto Rico under U.S. colonial subjugation for 120 years.”Powerful artwork displayed the collective’s demands. One showed a mother clutching a child below M16-toting colonial soldiers and bristling barbed wire. It declared: “Release the aid! Repeal the Jones Act! Cancel the debt! Decolonize Puerto Rico!”Another poster blasted the U.S. Trump Congress, in which Puerto Rico has no vote, for its new, “reformed,” 20 percent tax on goods made in Puerto Rico — a de facto blockade of the island’s economy.The march blocked Massachusetts Avenue at the offices of Seth Klarman’s Baupost Group, a hedge fund that “owns” nearly $1 billion of Puerto Rican bond “debt.” The action further highlighted Boston’s role as an administrative and financial center of colonial rule.Boston boasts of its 18th-century “anti-colonialism” against Britain, while the city operates as a financial and legal center for the U.S. colonial project in Puerto Rico. It is home to Puerto Rico’s federal district court as well as the Boston Group, which has funded massive school closures and privatization in Puerto Rico, and the Blackstone Group of financiers, who are rapidly turning the people’s beaches into playgrounds and casinos for wealthy elites.Outside the Baupost Group offices, Gillian Mason of MA Jobs with Justice spoke on behalf of 160 labor organizations in that coalition. Mason blasted “the economic system and the vultures who orchestrated the crisis in Puerto Rico.”“We are sick of these capitalists like Seth Klarman of Baupost making money off the backs of working people in Puerto Rico and here in Massachusetts,” Mason continued. “It is time to decolonize Puerto Rico now, with the first step being to cancel the debt to capitalists!”Steelworkers Local 8751 — the Boston School Bus Drivers — provided a mobile sound truck and handed out a statement in solidarity with Educamos, a Puerto Rican teachers’ union, saying: “While thousands of families have been forced out of Puerto Rico in recent months — many of whose children are now riding our school buses in Boston — we will continue to fight with you in the hopes that our combined efforts will soon end this criminal plot of forced migration of your people from your land and your nation.”Every speaker denounced and called for an immediate end to the U.S.-imposed Puerto Rico Oversight Management and Economic Stability Act (Promesa), which, even before the hurricane, had forced Puerto Rico to slash pensions and the minimum wage, close hundreds of schools and health facilities, lay off thousands of service workers, privatize social services like water, electricity and education, and liquidate people’s meager savings, much in scam “funds” pushed by UBS, Fidelity and other global financial institutions, while demanding extortionate, high-interest payments to Wall Street that can never be met.Steve Gillis is the financial secretary of Steelworkers Local 8751.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Readers are especially needed during the late-night and early morning hours.Those who would like to read but have not signed up may call the Salem-Troy Baptist Association at 566-1538 today or 344 1050 beginning Sunday afternoon or email [email protected] Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Adams said the opportunity to read God’s word aloud and publically is a blessing that is denied to many around the world.“We, as Americans, are blessed to be able to share the Bible in a public setting,” she said. “The response to the Bible Reading Marathon continues to be strong. People of all ages and from all walks of life come to read the Bible and hear God’s word.”Readers include churches, clubs, organizations, school groups, individuals and families.“It’s so encouraging that families are coming together to read,” Adams said. “Some of the younger children don’t read for an entire 15-minute interval but they read. Every reader is a blessing and it’s very special to hear God’s word through the voices of children.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Linda Adams, Salem-Troy Baptist Association administrator, said the Bible Reading Marathon is a non-denominational event and all believers are invited to come and read and/or hear God’s word read aloud and publically.The Bible Reading Marathon will begin Sunday with the reading of the words: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”Adams said God’s word will continue to be read until the noon hour on Thursday.
