Pro Rugby in America readies itself for lift-off

first_img Full house: A Test between the All Blacks and USA was a sell-out This weekend will see the kick-off of professional rugby in America and RW speaks to the man tasked with exposing it to a potential audience of 330 million By Graham Jenkins“Professional rugby has officially arrived in America.”It is an audacious claim to make before a tackle has been made in the inaugural battle for the PRO Rugby title but the man behind the first competition to be sanctioned by USA Rugby and World Rugby is used to making bold and successful calls.Doug Schoninger made his name and his fortune in finance and banking before deciding the United States was finally ready to embrace rugby union on a grand scale and so convinced is he that he is prepared to prove it using his own money.The New Yorker has bankrolled the entire operation including the setting up of teams in Denver, Ohio, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco and the recruitment of the playing roster that includes ex-All Black centurion Mils Muliaina and former Springbok Pedrie Wannenburg.Star dust: All Black Test centurion Mils Muliaina will play in the new league“What really attracts me is that this is the last global sport not to go professional in the United States,” he explained, “it doesn’t mean it is going to work but there are not a whole lot of others to play with.“My job now is to expose 330 million people to this game, if they don’t like it then I was wrong.”To help convince the sports-mad population, including fans old and new as well as potential sponsors that rugby has indeed arrived, the league is prepared to shake things up a little.“We’re going to play sudden death so we are always going to have a result,” explained director of rugby operations Steve Lewis. “We’ve also told the refs we want high ball in play stats, we want speed and, without being artificial, we want points.”That determination to present an attractive product extends to often troublesome elements of the sport. “What’s the blight in the modern game? Scrum resets,” continued Lewis. “So I have expressed to the refs and coaches that we are having no more than two resets at which point the ref makes a decision.Growth sport: USA Sevens are expected to be challenging for medals in Rio“They may get it right, they might get it wrong, but the ball will be back in play. Short-arm, nobody gets three points, nobody gets 40 yards with a kick, but the ball is back in play.“We have also had meetings with the coaches where the message has been that you don’t get to year two without year one so this year we have to be more collaborative than competitors and that is difficult as every fibre of their bodies is competitive.“Short of not hiring defensive coaches there’s not much more we can do.“You have got to suck it up sometimes and realise that the whole thing has got to work and it’s not just about winning the league. It’s no good if there is no league in the second year.”They are also breaking new ground off the field. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img The team names may appear a little bland to those US sports fans used to cheering on the ‘Warriors’, ‘Royals’ or ‘Broncos’ but there is a reason for that and it is part of the plan to build a dependable fan base with millennials a key target demographic.New frontiers: Ex-Wasps back Dom Waldouck will join Ohio for the season“We want to give ownership of that to the initial supporters, the foundation supporters of rugby,” explained Schoninger. “We’ll then pick one, build the logo around it and proper uniforms in the second year.“But the trick is if you want ownership it comes with responsibility, I’m giving you ownership but only as much as you take on responsibility.“So when people ask me what can  do I say go to games, buy a bit of the kit, if you don’t live anywhere near watch them on TV and watch them with people who don’t necessarily know rugby, spread the word – that’s what you can do, it doesn’t cost you anything.”The innovation does not stop there.The league announced this week that rather than the traditional TV broadcast right deal, games will be streamed worldwide via AOL.com and will also be available on cable through One World Sports.“The sports world is changing dramatically right now,” explained Schoninger, “so we are in the midst of that storm which is ultimately beneficial to us but short-term it is a negative.Time to go: San Francisco players get their promotional shots done“There are all these new distribution paths but I’m very much a digital guy and I think that’s what the presentation needs to be, I don’t think watching it on TV anymore is that interesting especially for people a lot younger than me.”But this isn’t just a money making exercise – the league’s mission is to fuel the development of the game in the country but to do that they are willing to use overseas talent.“The mandate of the league is to grow the American game, but that being said, sometimes you need to use the assets of people who are more developed than you,” insisted Schoninger.“I am 100% supportive of USA Rugby and I believe that they are 100% supportive of me, that’s kind of what you want, just like your spouse, you don’t want them to get involved too much.”But Schoninger is well aware it is not just a matter of paying players.“It was an amateur game, it is still an amateur game, we are bridging it to professionalism and it’s not something you just walk across to quickly,” he said. “It’s not just the players who are amateur, the structure is amateur, the participants are amateur, everything is amateur about it. Our job is not just to bring the players into professionalism but to bring everything into professionalism.”As a result he is not looking too far ahead. “You’ve got to make a start, it’s like a sales meeting you know, the goal of a first sales meeting is to get a second sales meeting, there is no other goal.”last_img read more

first_img Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Breaking NewsFrom the Orange County Sheriff’s OfficeAt approximately 10:21 today, Orange County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officers (SRO’s) at Wekiva High School, 2501 N.

The suspect did not threaten anyone with the firearm.Editor’s Note: It is the policy of The Apopka Voice not to identify minors arrested, and charged with crimes.

How could I transform the middle of pollution, noise and messy context to be a home?Two siblings with backgrounds in pharmacist and veterinarian, who once lived apart and had one own clinic, decided to buy a narrow land in a heart of Surat Thani for living together and commercialized purpose. The requirements had led to the Multi-Place – a place to live and to work harmoniously.Save this picture!The Complex Conditions This project was developed under such labyrinthine conditions. From the aspect of the clients, the buildings need to be able to live and work. The architects maximized the limited space of 480 square-meter land to support the clients’ businesses, including pharmacy, veterinary clinic, pets shop, hostel, cafe and rental meeting rooms. Also, the separated residential areas for two families needed to portray a detached house-like feeling to this mix use buildings. Besides, due to its site that sat along the main road, other issues which needed to be concerned are the legal restriction of buildings as well as dust and noise pollution.Save this picture!Save this picture!ModelSave this picture!Reveal, Conceal and Airy — The Multiple Patterned Concrete Screen Blocks Step by step, the architects were working on numerous potential solutions under the complex conditions, and then synthesized into the best solutions. Started with the legal restriction which a length of the building could not be over 20 meters, the architects divided the architecture up into two buildings; front building and rear building. The split area was converted into a peaceful garden in which brought a natural sunlight into the massive architecture and acted as a natural boundary between public area and private area.Save this picture!According to clients’ need which was to separate their residential space from one another, the architects added this garden to be a relaxing linkage between two detached residential spaces. The garden’s walls composed of easy-to-find glass blocks allowed sunlight to shine through creating dynamic shadow effects from the movements behind themselves as well as an airy-like sensation. In terms of concealing their own privacy from the prying eyes as well as dust and noise pollution, concrete screen blocks (from the local factory) became the best solution for the facade. Composing the multiple patterned concrete screen blocks together screened the pollution yet allowed air flow smoothly; meanwhile, created privacy for people inside without feeling cramped. Align with the garden design, the lighting from the interior could pass through the combination of the concrete screen blocks meaningfully casting countless shadow effects on the architecture.Save this picture!Save this picture!Product Description. In terms of concealing their own privacy from the prying eyes as well as dust and noise pollution, concrete screen blocks (from the local factory) became the best solution for the facade.

Seven-run fourth inning sends Baseball to Big 12 Championship Game, 7-3

The Horned Frogs defeated the West Virginia Mountaineers Saturday afternoon, 7-3.Designated hitter Michael Landestoy beat out a bunt to lead off the fourth inning to begin their biggest inning of the ballgame.“Getting the leadoff batter on in any inning is huge,” junior left fielder Josh Watson said. “Our pitching staff always talks about keeping the leadoff batter off base.”Landestoy advanced to second base on a single from junior center fielder Johnny Rizer before the walks began to pile up for West Virginia’s starting pitcher Kade Strowd. He walked three consecutive Horned Frogs to open the scoring for TCU. First-year shortstop Adam Oviedo worked a 10-pitch walk and sophomore third baseman Conner Shepherd worked a seven-pitch walk to score Landestoy and Rizer for TCU’s first two runs of the ballgame.Landestoy crosses home plate during the fourth inning outburst. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Mountaineers would send three pitchers to the mound in relief to silence the fourth-inning outburst.Strowd was replaced following his walk to Shepherd. He allowed five earned runs on five hits, walking three batters and striking out five.Shane Ennis, Strowd’s successor, lasted only four pitches and one batter. Watson ripped a two-run double off the right-field wall to extend TCU’s lead to three runs.Ennis was quickly replaced by Tristan Hudson who lasted only one batter as well. Senior right fielder A.J. Balta increased his RBI totals in the tournament to 10 as he recorded a two-run double down the left field line.“It’s nice to know that you have a leader who can rally the team and get them going,” sophomore pitcher Charles King said. “It’s hard for someone to come in for their first year at a program and make the impact that he’s made on everybody. His effort and energy make the whole team better.”Mountaineer reliever Alek Manoah was able to record the final out of the inning on a pop-out by sophomore catcher Zach Humphreys, but not before a one-run double from Landestoy scored Balta to make it a 7-1 ballgame.Landestoy breaks out the salsa in celebration of his RBI double. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“Our offense is determined by how Watson, Balta, and Landestoy do,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “We need those guys to drive in those runs and they’ve done a great job this tournament.”West Virginia took advantage of a lead-off hit from second baseman Kyle Gray to plate the first run of the ballgame in the second inning. A walk to catcher Ivan Gonzalez advanced Gray to second base and an RBI single from shortstop Jimmy Galusky scored Gray for West Virginia’s first lead over the Horned Frogs in the tournament.Watson’s only hit of the ballgame was his two-run double in the fourth inning. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoTCU’s starting pitcher Russell Smith was pulled in the third inning after he surrendered two walks and a single to load the bases. In his outing, he threw 2.2 innings and allowed one unearned run on two hits. Smith walked four batters and struck out two.Schlossnagle called on King in relief and he stranded all three runners on the basepath, assisted by a diving Boulware to keep a Gonzalez ground ball in the infield and throw him out at first base.“I came in with a clear head and a plan of attack,” King said. “I wanted to start with a strike and get ahead. I wanted to fill up the zone and establish my fastball early. I had a great defense behind me that allowed me to roll a ground ball and still get an out.”Charles King kept a simple focus during Saturday’s victory over West Virginia. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Mountaineers cut into TCU’s lead with a run in the fifth inning. West Virginia right fielder Darius Hill singled to lead off the inning and advanced to third on a double from Gray. Hill scored on a groundout from designated hitter Tyler Doans.West Virginia would add another run from Hill in the seventh for their third run of the ballgame. He doubled off the right-field wall to begin the inning, advanced to third off a groundout by first baseman Marques Inman and scored on a sacrifice fly from Gray.King was pulled for sophomore reliever Cal Coughlin in the seventh inning following Hill’s run. In four innings, King allowed two earned runs on five hits. He struck out two Mountaineers and walked zero, earning the winning decision.Coughlin pitched the final 2.1 innings for the Horned Frogs, allowing only one hit and striking out one batter.“Chuck was really good,” Schlossnagle said. “We caught the baseball behind him and did a really nice job filling up the strike zone. Cal did the same thing.”Schlossnagle said TCU’s third win in a row in the Big 12 Championship has been highlighted by “very sound baseball.”“We’ve pitched well out of the bullpen, caught the ball and have gotten timely hits,” Schlossnagle said. “Pitching, defense and timely hitting is the recipe for all good baseball.”With the victory, the Frogs will match-up with Baylor in the Big 12 Championship Game, winners of 21 of their last 24 games.“We’re excited to play for a championship tomorrow,” Schlossnagle said. “They’re the hottest team in the country. We’re going to need to play really clean baseball. They’re super talented, very well-coached and have a great plan at the plate. They’re athletic and can beat you in a lot of different ways. They have a very impressive pitching staff. They’re an ‘Omaha’ club in my mind.”First pitch for tomorrow’ championship game is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. from Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Linux 14X Comes to Pasadena

Required fields are marked * Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Pasadena City Councilmember Andy Wilson proudly welcomed Linux 14X, the 14th Annual Southern California Linux Expo, to the Pasadena Convention Center Saturday morning.Wilson, who himself comes from the software industry, was thrilled to call himself a “geek” among the packed ballroom, filled with software developers and aficionados. He described his own excitement at having the growing event move from its former location near LAX to Pasadena. The event will draw more than 3500 Linux fans to the convention center over this weekend.Wilson co-founded “Innovate Pasadena,” a cooperative effort between local tech companies and the city, which he described as “creating a vibrant tech eco-system.”“If you’re really nerdy like me,” he laughed, “we’re trying to make this our home, so that’s our focus,” he told the crowd.“Scale 14X” is a combination workshop, classroom, learning process, tech fair, and networking opportunity for developers who specialize in creating software for the Linux operating system, a system which operates wholly separately from Mac or Windows, under the idea that software should be free and open to everyone, whether developer or just a consumer. Nearly every popular software has an equivalent in Linux, though the system is still primarily for developers and experts. So far.Wilson, who has founded and invested in a fistful of software companies, told the group that he sees himself as the primary advocate for technology on the council. He also took the opportunity to “brag” about the city to the group, many of whom were new to the city. He specifically mentioned Caltech, “just up the street,” and its Mars Rover program and 30 Nobel Prize winners, among a host of discoveries and innovations.In addition, said Wilson, “The majority of cars on the road today were created by Art Center College of Design hands!”DNA Sequencers were also developed in Pasadena, said Wilson, as well as “pay and search advertising” which has been key yo Google’s massive economic success. Earthlink and E-Harmony also originally began in Pasadena, as well as Spokeo, which was founded in the Bay Area, also now makes it home in Pasadena.Wilson also touted Idea Lab, which was founded in Pasadena in 1996 as the first tech incubators, a place where new startups could be nurtured and allowed to grow and blossom. Since its creation, IdeaLab has created 125 tech companies, with 40 IPOs and acquisitions, including Picasa, Internet Brands, SellBrite, ESolar, and codeSpark.Concluding his welcome, Wilson said, “I think our mission here in the City of Pasadena and for innovators on the whole, is around community-building and sharing and sharing our ideas and activities.”With that, more than 3500 developers got right to work on a Saturday morning in Pasadena, Southern California’s fastest growing tech hub.

The service is designed to integrate directly into our existing transit system and enhance transit service where it is challenging to run fixed-route buses.“Our mission is to create a world-class transportation system for Los Angeles by giving Angelenos a wide array of convenient, reliable and affordable transportation options to get where they need to go,” Los Angeles Mayor and Metro Board Chair Eric Garcetti said. “With NextGen and Metro Micro, we are rolling out two key projects in our pursuit of a city and region defined by greater mobility and expanded prosperity for every rider, commuter and resident.”Some routes are impacted by the changes, but over time and not necessarily immediately:• Line 258 has been rerouted to a new terminal via Eastern/ Floral and Mission Street to service the L (Gold) Line South Pasadena Station and terminate service at York/Figueroa. The segment via Huntington Drive, Oak Knoll Drive and Lake Avenue to Pasadena/ Altadena was canceled due to low ridershop.• Line 79 will continue to serve Huntington Drive and Line 180 will continue to serve Lake Av with L Line (Gold) rail service linking South Pasadena and Pasadena.Metro Micro is a shared ride service that uses vans for short trips within designated service zones in Los Angeles County.The service will allow riders to plan entire trips with both Metro Micro and their bus or train ride in real-time, using a single mobile app, internet browser or Metro’s call center. Riders will be able to pay for the service by using their TAP card and TAP account or with a debit, credit or prepaid credit card.Rides will cost an introductory rate of $1 per ride (transfer not included) for the first six months of Metro Micro service in each zone. Metro staff will return to the Board at the end of the six-month introductory period to consider potential fare adjustments, Metro officials said.More information can be found at www.metro.net/. 19 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
