Gloucester and Harlequins score classic tries in great game of rugby

first_imgTuesday Feb 28, 2012 Gloucester and Harlequins score classic tries in great game of rugby Jonny May scored a fantastic try as Gloucester beat league leaders Harlequins 29-23 in an Aviva Premiership classic at Kingsholm on Saturday night. There were some positives for Quins though as they scored a brilliant late try to seal a bonus point.Gloucester’s tries were scored by Charlie Sharples, Akapusi Qera, and May while Freddie Burns kicked four penalties and a conversion. James Simpson-Daniel was on top form too, setting up Sharples’ try and showing that well known flair we’ve come to expect from the now 29 year old.Fullback May, who scored a genuine contender for try of the season, says that Simpson-Daniel has had a huge influence on him. “Sinbad (Simpson-Daniel) and Tom Voyce are both gurus in that back-three position. They are great mentors for Charlie and me, and we’ve got massive respect for both of them. James is still class, he’s still a world-class player.“That first try, he created that through a fantastic piece of skill. Fair play to him to still be world-class after 250 games. He’s a great guy to have around, an inspiration, a great mentor and someone to learn from.“If ever we need to pick his brain he’s always there for us, and that’s invaluable. He’s more than just a finisher. Give him the ball and he can always finish, but his ability to create is what sets him apart and his work for the first try is the prime example really.”Ross Chisholm scored two tries for Harlequins, his second a brilliant consolation effort which gave Nick Evans a chance at getting the bonus point, but all the talk has been of May’s try, and the way he darted through the defence with ease.“I think they were quite cautious about covering across and so that left a little gap to step back inside. I managed to find the gap and then I could get away. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do, then I do something and five seconds later I’m over the line,” he said.Do you think some of the players on show in this game should be playing for England?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

I was not going to miss that great adventure. For an afternoon, I was Amelia Earhart, aviator.I don’t remember anything much about my first airplane ride. I was too busy being Amelia Earhart and getting the feel of being in the sky to notice the tiny world below me.The next airplane ride I took was several years later when I was a college student working at Yellowstone National Park.As YP workers, we got from place to place by hitching rides with tourists and that was not a very reliable way to travel. So, when my friend, Lois, and I were invited to visit former YP girls at their homes in Salt Lake City, we decided to fly via Frontier Airlines. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories You Might Like Governor’s behavior is ‘bizarre’ During the press conference three weeks ago announcing the historic BP settlement and windfall for the state, Gov. Bentley repeatedly… read more By Jaine Treadwell Skip Print Article I thought the airlines were so named because the planes flew across the Frontier. Never did I think that the plane we boarded was the first plane to fly across the Frontier.The airplane looked more like a 50-gallon oil drum than anything that could sprout wings and fly. The seats were salvaged from a ditched school bus and anything that was not tied down bounced around and rolled around.“We’ll probably have some turbulence between here and Salt Lake City so you might want to buckle your seatbelts,” the pilot’s voice echoed off the tin walls.I would have buckled my seatbelt, if I’d had one.The ride was a little bumpy. I never found the fillings from two of my teeth. But I did find the barrette that was jarred out of my hair on takeoff.We were “cruising” at 3000 feet then, suddenly and with no warning, fell to 1000 feet, climbed back to 3000 feet and fell again. We climbed again and fell again. This time, the pilot took the opportunity of being so close to the ground to just go ahead and land.When we exited the antique plane, I fell to my knees and kissed the floor leaving my lips forever imprinted in Avon Ruby Red at the airport in Salt Lake City.Strangely, I never thought of Amelia Earhart one time during the entire flight from Billings to Salt Lake City. But as I turned to catch a parting glace at the Frontier oil can, I remembered what Amelia Earhart said, “Adventure is worthwhile.”All I had to say was “Bah! Humbug!” Amelia Earhart was my idol, my hero, my alter ego. She was everything my little frizzy-headed, knock-kneed, snaggletoothed self wanted to be.Daddy was in the Army Air Corps during World War II, so I had almost everything I needed to be Amelia Earhart — a leather pilot’s cap with goggles, a wool scarf to tie around my neck, a heavy leather jacket and boots and gloves lined with rabbit’s fur.All I needed was an airplane. Mother Nature provided me with that. While we were gone to Eufaula to visit Aunt Eleanor, a storm came and blew down a big pecan tree in our backyard. The minute we got home, I saw that an airplane had landed. The tree’s huge root system was a perfect cockpit, with all kinds of sticks to guide the airplane and guns to shoot the Red Barron. I was Amelia Earhart, and I was off across the ocean.My pecan tree plane was the closest thing to an airplane that I knew about until I was in junior high school. My uncle was the ABC director, and my cousin, Net, and I spent the day in Montgomery with him. We got to eat at Morrison’s Cafeteria, which was a big treat for us. After dinner, Uncle James had a surprise for us. He was going to let us go up in the ABC airplane and help the pilot look for moonshine stills.I knew right off Mama wouldn’t let me do that. I knew, too, that Daddy would say, “Go ahead, just don’t tell your mama.” By Blood Sugar Blaster Email the author Published 3:00 am Saturday, August 1, 2015 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Sponsored Contentlast_img read more

Canadian ships return from worldwide operations

The two ships returned to Esquimalt on December 18 after a five-month deployment to the Asia-Pacific region on operation Projection.Calgary and Asterix sailed on operation Projection from August 20 to December 18, 2018. The ships supported operations in the region, participated in three multinational maritime engagements (Kakadu 2018 in Australia, and Keen Sword and Kaedex in Japan).Calgary also became the first Halifax-class frigate to visit Danang, Vietnam, and to conduct operations in support of the United Nations Security Council sanctions regime related to North Korea, as part of a multinational initiative alongside partners and allies.“The sailors of HMCS Calgary have worked tirelessly on the international stage since August 2018, demonstrating tremendous professionalism, commitment, and dedication to excellence at sea. Working alongside our international partners in the Asia-Pacific, they were outstanding ambassadors of Canada and the Royal Canadian Navy. It is also essential to acknowledge that none of this would have been possible without the love and support of families at home. Bravo Zulu.”Rear Admiral Craig Baines, Commander Maritime Component Command“HMCS Calgary deployed on Operation PROJECTION to satisfy very clear objectives for the Canadian Armed Forces, Royal Canadian Navy and ultimately the Government of Canada,” Commander Blair Saltel, commanding officer, HMCS Calgary, said. “After five months of almost continuously operating with partner navies in the Asia-Pacific region, promoting interoperability through exercises off Australia and Japan, through monitoring North Korean maritime sanctions evasion contrary to UN Security Council resolutions and through widespread community engagement while alongside, I believe we have satisfied these objectives.”MV Asterix participated in operation Projection from August to December 2018, supporting HMCS Calgary and other partners.
