Summer Tours: South Africa v England Preview for Match One

first_imgReplacements 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie, 17 Joe Marler, 18 Harry Williams, 19 Brad Shields, 20 Nathan Hughes, 21 Ben Spencer, 22 Piers Francis, 23 Denny Solomona.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS All you need to know about the Test between South Africa and England in Johannesburg South Africa v England PreviewTwo giants of the global game come together with plenty at stake. In only the second three-match series between the sides – South Africa won 2-0, with one draw, in 2012 – the Springboks are starting afresh under new coach Rassie Erasmus following the sacking of Allister Coetzee in February.Erasmus’s opening match last weekend brought defeat by Wales in a dismal match in Washington, but he has a completely revamped side this time, with only tighthead Wilco Louw possibly starting again should Trevor Nyakane fail a fitness test.Nevertheless, big guns such as Eben Etzebeth, Malcolm Marx and Warren Whiteley are missing and Eddie Jones’s more experienced XV arguably start as slight favourites, despite the fact England have only beaten the Boks three times on South African soil.England will certainly be eager to end a four-match losing run, comprising Six Nations defeats by Scotland, France and Ireland, and a high-scoring reverse to the Barbarians in an uncapped match at the end of May.Chris Robshaw missed six tackles in that Baa-Baas match and scrutiny will fall on the senior players just as much as the rookies as Jones searches for the combinations that he hopes will take England to glory at next year’s World Cup.Nice touch: Ben Youngs scores on England’s previous visit to Ellis Park in 2012, a match the Boks won 36-27What’s the big team news?Lots to digest. The switching of Mike Brown and Elliot Daly, with Daly getting a run at full-back and Brown restored to the wing shirt that he last wore with regularity in 2013, has raised eyebrows. Brown is more of a weaving runner than a traditional flyer, but whatever the number on his back he will be a reassuring back-three presence under the high ball.Tom Curry, a debutant in Argentina last summer, finally gets another go at seven after an injury-plagued season while Kiwi-born Brad Shields is set to win a first cap off the bench after jetting in from Super Rugby.Curry is the only non-London club forward to start, with Saracens’ hefty contingent including two-cap lock Nick Isiekwe – Joe Launchbury has a calf injury – and No 8 Billy Vunipola for his first cap since Dublin last year. Vunipola’s book Wrecking Ball last night won the Rugby Book of the Year prize at the Sports Book Awards in London.Welcome return: Tom Curry gets a chance at seven after missing much of the season with injury (Getty)Another Saracen, scrum-half Ben Spencer, can expect to win a first cap as a replacement in a side led by Owen Farrell because regular captain Dylan Hartley is resting after concussion.South Africa give debuts to wings S’busiso Nkosi (Sharks) and Aphiwe Dyantyi (Lions), as well as Bulls lock RG Snyman.Willie le Roux and Faf de Klerk are included after outstanding Premiership seasons with Wasps and Sale respectively, and there’s a new captain in Siya Kolisi. Prop Tendai Mtawarira will win his 99th cap almost ten years to the day since his Test debut v Wales in Pretoria.Attacking threat: Willie le Roux’s last cap came against Italy in Florence in Novemver 2016 (Getty)What have the coaches said?South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus: “It will be one proper series, a hell of a series. We lost the game with Wales (last weekend), which makes it two defeats in a row and Eddie (Jones) and England have lost four in a row. We are all under pressure and, when you lose for your country, the heat comes on you.“It will be a step up we’re ready for. We have to win and so do they. When you get matches like that it means the first game at Ellis Park is going to be a massive one.“Eddie is a wonderful coach. He always has a lot of plans, and the things he does in the build-up to a Test match in terms of what he says are always very smart. I don’t think it will be any different this time and it’s going to be a wonderful occasion.”England coach Eddie Jones: “We’ve had a really good week in preparation and are pleased with the way the squad has come together.center_img “Owen Farrell has settled in well to his new role, with the senior players supporting him, and there is a good feeling within the camp. We want to do something special on this tour and the players are incredibly excited about this challenge and opportunity we have.“Ellis Park is the spiritual homeland of South African rugby and the Springboks play to another level on that ground, so we know we have to raise our game physically early on and be enormously accurate in the way we play.”Boks boss: Rassie Erasmus with Pieter-Steph du Toit and new skipper Siya Kolisi (AFP/Getty)Any interesting statistics?* This will be England’s fourth meeting with the Springboks at Ellis Park (currently called Emirates Airline Park). They won there 18-9 in 1972 but lost 35-9 in 1984 and 36-27 in 2012.* Ben Youngs scored two tries in that defeat six years ago. He and Chris Robshaw are the only starters this weekend who also started in 2012, but Owen Farrell and Joe Marler were also involved on that occasion.* England’s back division has three times as much Test experience, with the average caps per man being 44 compared to South Africa’s 15. The caps tallies in the pack and on the bench are almost identical.* This is England’s eighth tour to South Africa. Excluding the one-off Test in 1972, they have yet to win a series there, although they drew 1-1 in 1994 and 2000.* The average South Africa-England score in South Africa is 28-16 while across all 38 meetings it’s 21-17.* The Springboks’ 58-10 win at Bloemfontein in 2007 is England’s second-biggest Test defeat ever, eclipsed only by the 76-0 rout by Australia on the 1998 Tour to Hell. Mike Brown, on the wing this weekend, made his Test debut in that Bloemfontein match.Switch: Elliot Daly, being tackled by Denny Solomona in training, gets a run at 15 this weekend (Getty)What time does it kick off and is it on TV?The match at Ellis Park kicks off at 4.05pm UK time on Saturday and is live on Sky Sports. There will also be live commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online.The referee is New Zealander Ben O’Keeffe, who took charge of England’s 30-6 win over Australia last autumn that had Michael Cheika complaining about TMO decisions. The assistant referees are France’s Romain Poite and New Zealand’s Glen Jackson, with Ireland’s Simon McDowell fulfilling TMO duties.What are the line-ups?SOUTH AFRICA Willie le Roux; S’busiso Nkosi, Lukhanyo Am, Damian de Allende, Aphiwe Dyantyi; Handré Pollard, Faf de Klerk; Tendai Mtawarira, Bongi Mbonambi, Trevor Nyakane/Wilco Louw, RG Snyman, Franco Mostert, Siya Kolisi (capt), Jean-Luc du Preez, Duane Vermeulen.Replacements 16 Akker van der Merwe, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Wilco Louw/Thomas du Toit, 19 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 20 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 21 Ivan van Zyl, 22 Elton Jantjies, 23 Warrick Gelant.ENGLAND Elliot Daly; Jonny May, Henry Slade, Owen Farrell (capt), Mike Brown; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Jamie George, Kyle Sinckler, Maro Itoje, Nick Isiekwe, Chris Robshaw, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola.

Police: FL day care owner arrested after leaving baby girl hot van, killing her

first_imgArpad Benedek/iStock(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) — A Florida day care owner was arrested on child neglect charges on Wednesday after a baby girl died in a scorching hot van outside of the facility. Police arrested 56-year-old Darryl Ewing, co-owner of the Ewing’s Love & Hope Preschool and Academy in Jacksonville, where an employee found the infant unconscious inside of a blazing hot van, authorities said Wednesday evening. The baby girl, who police said was just a few months old, had been in the vehicle for nearly five hours, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Assistant Chief Brian Kee said at a news conference.It’s believed she suffered a “heat-related injury,” Kee said. Her name was not released. No other children were hurt, Kee said, adding that interviews were ongoing. The temperature reached 92 degrees in Jacksonville on Wednesday. The baby had been in a van outside the day care from about 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Kee said.ABC News’ call to the day care was not immediately returned. The Department of Children and Families in Duvall County has begun the process of issuing an emergency suspension order to cease operations at the facility, the agency said in a statement. The facility has been licensed with DCF since 2016.“We are all just beyond devastated,” Amber Rollins, director of the national nonprofit, told ABC News on Wednesday. The group is advocating for mandatory alarm technology in cars.“We have to do more,” Rollins said. “This cannot continue to happen week after week, year after year when the solution is right at our fingertips.”Hot car deaths reached a record level last year with at least 52 children killed, according to Just this week, a 2-year-old boy was rescued after he was left in a hot car in Georgia.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Press release: £30 million commitment to help farmers boost productivity

first_img The UK is a world-leader for talent in agriculture and technology, so there are real opportunities for our burgeoning agri-tech sector. Harnessing technology enables our hard working farmers to become even more productive and environmentally efficient. We are already seeing the rewards of investing in agri-tech, with further funding of around £30m confirmed today for farmers to purchase hi-tech equipment. We know that by embracing technology – such as fruit ripeness spectrometers or calving detectors – farm businesses can become more efficient, productive and resilient. The government has committed £30 million for further rounds of the popular Countryside Productivity Small Grants scheme (CPSGS), which helps farmers buy the equipment they need to boost productivity and increase yields.The first round of funding for small grants was launched in February and the government is on course to grant more than £15 million to farmers who applied to buy new kit.This will include equipment specific to cattle, sheep and pig farmers, as well as precision farming and resource management equipment for arable farmers.The next application window will open in early 2019, with over £30 million available for future funding rounds for farmers.Environment Secretary Michael Gove made the announcement ahead of the Government’s Agri-Tech Investment roundtable in London on Thursday 11 October, hosted by DIT and attended by Defra, BEIS and DFID alongside investors including Bayer Crop Sciences, Elanco, Marine Harvest and Zoetis.Environment Secretary Michael Gove said: Following industry feedback, new items have also been added to the list of equipment eligible for funding in the second round, including fruit ripeness spectrometers and nitrogen-measuring devices for calculating fertiliser application for crops.Information about the scheme and the items eligible for the first round of funding are listed online. Further details will be published in early 2019 when the next round of funding opens for applications.last_img read more
