Eels’ Jennings wary of old club

first_img‌Jennings is one of two former Panthers in Brad Arthur’s starting 17 with Suiaia Matagi set to line-up against his former club, while Eels forwards Siosaia Vave and Tepai Moeroa came through the Penrith junior system before moving on.”I was there when [Matt] Moylan and other guys like Dallin [Watene-Zelezniak] and Bryce [Cartwright] were coming through, they were young pups then so to see them shine and drive the Penrith team now is good,” Jennings said.The NSW State of Origin centre’s combination with flying winger Semi Radradra looked to click into gear against the Wests Tigers on Easter Monday, however there is still room for improvement with a number of opportunities going begging.”I think I’ve bombed two tries trying to give it to Semi, it just comes down to overthinking things but that’s my job to execute plays and I couldn’t do that on those occasions,” Jennings said.”It’s been a slow start [for me] and I’m getting a feel for the game. My involvement was something I wanted to work on, and getting some quality ball helped that.”I’m still learning… the day where I’m not is the day I’ll retire. For me it’s a challenge and to have Semi there I have to give him the ball.”Eels teammate Moeroa insists the Eels should be well aware of the Panthers’ mentality, staring down the barrel of four-straight losses – a position his side were in only a week ago.”They’ll throw everything they have at us, teams get desperate when you lose three in a row, they throw the ball around more so we will expect nothing less,” Moeroa said.”We played them in the trials and it was a real bash-up between both teams so it will be no different.”The rivalry is always good and it’s great for the fans to come out.”The Panthers have been boosted by the return of Bryce Cartwright from an ankle injury, but have lost Kiwi international James Fisher-Harris (shoulder) for the clash. And while it won’t be the first time Eels centre Michael Jennings lines up against his former club, the 29-year-old is yet to beat them in Parramatta colours and is keen to change that when the two sides clash on Saturday afternoon in the ‘Battle of the West’.The Panthers have never made the Telstra Premiership finals from a position of two wins and five losses, but the St Mary’s junior knows all too well that form goes out the window for the local derby at ANZ Stadium.”They’re still my old club and I have a soft spot for them but I’m a Parramatta boy now,” Jennings said of the Panthers.”[Penrith] understand the situation that they’re in so that makes it harder for us boys knowing that they’re going to have to win [to make the finals].”One more loss is really going to hurt them in terms of making the top eight.”‌last_img read more

First outbreaks of self-management in the locker room

first_imgThe team arrived at the Champions League meeting against Naples with the spirits recovered in some way after having taken the leadership in Real Madrid from LaLiga. Nevertheless, the match at the San Paolo stadium was a nightmare for the Blaugrana, especially in a first part where they were unable to chain a play that would end the ball between the three suits. No shot at the door in 45 minutes and with the aggravating that the rival had put it at the first opportunity he had. At rest, the faces of the players were a poem. The frustration and confusion over the bad game of the team were evident. Setién, accompanied by his second, Eder Sarabia, tried to lift his spirits a little, ensuring that the team was doing many things well and that there was only a little more arrival in the area. Nevertheless, the coach’s arguments were not enough for some players, who gathered in a separate huddle to finish managing this situation and try to remedy it. And in the Champions League, the details take you to the slaughterhouse and more than one had the shadow of Rome and Liverpool still very close.There is no doubt that the team improved the image in the second part, although it was not an offensive barrage, at least he was more convinced of his options in attack, product of which came the goal of Antoine Griezmann, after a great combination between Sergio Busquets and Nelson Semedo.At the end of the game, the sensations were still contradictory in the Blaugrana expedition. Partially satisfied because the result was not bad (1-1), but resigned because the team is reaching the limit of its possibilities and the journey begins to be shorter every day. The arrival of Quique Setién in Barcelona looked like he was going to print a new impulse to the libretto already recognized and recognizable by Ernesto Valverde. However, after promising first beginnings, the Setién effect is deflating alarmingly. Neither does the disastrous sports planning that has been unable to reinforce a team that has seen three players in the winter market – Carlos Aleñá, Moussa Wagué and Jean Claire Todibo – and another one, Luis Suárez, were injured. long range. Four casualties of one stroke and not one incorporation is simply an unforgivable lack of foresight.last_img read more

Bolt looking forward to JN Heroes Weekend 5K

first_img“Come out and run with me; discover my parish and support a worthy cause.”That’s the message from superstar sprinter Usain Bolt, as the ‘I’s are dotted and the ‘t’s crossed, ahead of the inaugural Jamaica National Building Society (JN) Foundation Heroes in Action 5k Run/Walk, set for Sunday, October 18.Geared towards raising support for the Granville Place of Safety for Girls, the course will take participants through one of the island’s most picturesque corridors – where Georgian artistry meets Caribbean charm, a point that Alfred Francis from race organisers Running Events was quick to underline.However, the opportunity to rub shoulders with one of the most recognisable faces in international sports, Usain Bolt, who was born and raised not too far away in Sherwood Content, will no doubt be a big draw for the road-running community, as well as the casual participant.Bolt told The Sunday Gleaner yesterday that he is looking forward to taking part in the event and encouraged everyone to join him.”I’ll be there, and I can say that I’m really looking forward to this event. I can’t promise that I will do all 5K, but I am ready for any challenge. I do not intend to lose another race before I retire,” he laughed in reference to last week’s ‘made-for-TV’ race with eight-year-old viral video fitness enthusiast DemarJay Smith on the popular Ellen Degeneres Show.”This event is in aid of a worthy cause, one that the Usain Bolt Foundation is honoured to lend its support to,” added the 17-time Olympic and World Champion sprinter.Saffrey Brown, JN Foundation general manager, reiterated the importance of the event and what it means to the future of its charity, the Granville Place of Safety for Girls.”There have been a lot of issues recently about protection for young people, and we really wanted to look at how we could help them get a better sort of start and increase their chances for positive outcome,” Brown said.Use of proceedsShe underlined that proceeds from the run/walk will be used to build a classroom, media library and sewing room for the facility, which caters to at-risk under-aged females.Speaking to the route itself, Francis said that the reception has been positive, while promising an enriching experience for all participants.”I see a lot of emails floating around from running groups planning to take a ride out of town and participate. Of course, we have a concentration of road races in Kingston, but it’s a holiday weekend. A lot of persons want to go out of town, go on the North Coast, and so we are providing something for their palette,” Francis said. “There is no race in Falmouth, so for the people in the town, the schools in and around the area, in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and so on, we also want them to come out and share.”last_img read more

SWANSEA VS LEICESTER

Their 15 away points is the joint best in the Premier League, with Arsenal also boasting 15 points on their travels. Leicester also have 15 away goals (only Arsenal have more with 16).Swansea, meanwhile, are now 15th in the Premier League following their 1-0 defeat at Liverpool, their third loss in four games.Swansea, though, should be confident, having won their last three home league games against Leicester.last_img read more

House panel approves subpoenas for top Bush aides

first_img“The question they’ve got to ask themselves is, are you more interested in a political spectacle than getting the truth?” Snow said of the overture Tuesday that was relayed to Capitol Hill by White House counsel Fred Fielding. “There must be accountability,” countered subcommittee Chairwoman Linda Sanchez, D-Calif. The Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a vote Thursday on its own set of subpoenas, with Democrats complaining that the threat of force is the only way to get a straight answer from the White House. “The White House is in a bunker mentality – won’t listen, won’t change,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. “I believe there is even more to come out, and I think it’s our duty to bring it out.” WASHINGTON – A House panel approved today subpoenas for President Bush’s political adviser, Karl Rove and other top White House aides, setting up a constitutional showdown over the firings of eight federal prosecutors. By voice vote, the House Judiciary subcommittee on commercial and administrative law decided to compel the president’s top aides to testify publicly and under oath about their roles in the firings. The White House has refused to budge in the controversy, standing by embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and insisting that the firings were appropriate. White House spokesman Tony Snow said that in offering aides to talk to the committees privately, Bush had sought to avoid the “media spectacle” that would result from public hearings with Rove and others at the witness table. The House subcommittee Wednesday approved, but has not issued, subpoenas for Rove, former White House Counsel Harriet Miers, their deputies and Kyle Sampson, Gonzales’ chief of staff, who resigned over the uproar last week. The panel also voted to compel the production of documents related to the firings from those officials and Gonzales, Fielding and White House chief of staff Joshua Bolton. Fielding a day earlier refused to provide Congress internal White House communications on the subject. The full Judiciary Committee would authorize the subpoenas if Chairman John Conyers of Michigan chose to do so. Authorizing the subpoenas “does provide this body the leverage needed to negotiate from a position of strength,” said Rep. William Delahunt, D-Mass. Republicans called the authorization premature, though some GOP members said they would consider voting to approve the subpoenas if Conyers promises to issue them only if he has evidence of wrongdoing. Conyers agreed. “This (authority) will not be used in a way that will make you regret your vote.” Several Republicans said, “No” during the voice vote, but no roll call was taken. For his part, Bush remained resolute. Would he fight Democrats in court to protect his aides against congressional subpoenas? “Absolutely,” Bush declared. Bush said Tuesday he worried that allowing testimony under oath would set a precedent on the separation of powers that would harm the presidency as an institution. If neither side blinks, the dispute could end up in court – ultimately the Supreme Court – in a politically messy development that would prolong what Bush called the “public spectacle” of the Justice Department’s firings, and public trashings, of the eight U.S. attorneys. Bush defended Gonzales against demands from congressional Democrats and a handful of Republicans that Gonzales resign. “He’s got support with me,” Bush said. “I support the attorney general.” Democrats say the prosecutors’ dismissals were politically motivated. Gonzales initially had asserted the firings were performance-related, not based on political considerations. But e-mails released earlier this month between the Justice Department and the White House contradicted that assertion and led to a public apology from Gonzales over the handling of the matter. The e-mails showed that Rove, as early as Jan. 6, 2005, questioned whether the U.S. attorneys should all be replaced at the start of Bush’s second term, and to some degree worked with Miers and Sampson to get some prosecutors dismissed.last_img read more

Murrays ready for son to shine in L.A.

first_imgFor Brady Murray, it seemed that day would be extra special. In June of 2003, he was drafted in the fifth round by the Kings, the team coached by his father. The family reunion made for a nice storyline but immediately felt awkward to Brady. He loved his father but he didn’t want to work for him. “The day I was drafted, it was a great day, but I looked at the situation thinking people were going to look at me and say, `The only reason he is there is because of his father,”‘ Murray said. “That really bothered me. No one ever said that to me directly, but you hear things.” When Murray makes his North American NHL debut today, his father indeed will be watching – from the other side of the ice. Andy Murray, fired by the Kings toward the end of the 2005-06 season, now coaches the St. Louis Blues, the Kings’ opponent at Staples Center. The Murrays will become the fourth father-son combo ever to face each other in an NHL game as head coach and player, according to Elias Sports Bureau. They follow Bob Johnson and Mark Johnson, Bill Dineen and Gord Dineen, and Rick Wilson and Landon Wilson. “It’s kind of funny how it ended up,” Brady Murray said. “My dad and I looked at the schedule when it came out and saw this game, but we weren’t really concerned. I was worried about making the team.” It wasn’t clear Murray would be on the Kings until the final roster cuts before heading to London last week. He averaged nearly 12 minutes as the fourth-line center in the two games in London, his first two in the NHL, and drew praise from Coach Marc Crawford for showing “a lot of spark and energy.” Andy Murray was able to watch the games on tape. “When I saw him play his first shift, to be honest, it was kind of emotional,” Andy Murray said. “My father was a hockey fanatic and he’s no longer with us. I thought about how special it would have been for him to see Brady out there.” Brady Murray was 15 years old when his father took over as coach of the Kings in 1999. Though he remained with his mother, Ruth, in Minnesota, Brady spent many of his high school vacations in Los Angeles, soaking up the atmosphere around the Kings players and coaches in the locker room and on the ice during his father’s nearly seven-year run with the team. He probably spent more time around the Kings in high school than in the four years after being drafted. After his selection, Brady Murray spent two years in college at North Dakota and then two years in Switzerland, where he was when he found out about his father’s firing. At that point, the Kings hadn’t shown much interest in Brady and his father was no longer around. But he stuck with his goal to make the team and went about impressing the new regime. “For him to have the chance to be on the ice with Rob Blake, Jaroslav Modry, Lubomir Visnovsky, Derek Armstrong and other veteran guys after admiring them so much when he was younger is pretty special,” Andy Murray said. “He’s been a King all the way through. “There was never any wavering with that.” Growing up, Brady was always coached by others while his father was at his different coaching stops around the NHL. When Andy tried to provide advice, he resisted. “He’d always say, `You’re my dad, not my coach,”‘ Ruth Murray said. Their relationship changed in Brady’s two years in Switzerland, and they spoke regularly during training camp last month with Brady asking for advice. “I knew that would happen when Brady matured,” Ruth Murray said, “that he’d take advantage of his father’s expertise. They’ve talked a lot the last few weeks about lineups. Andy knows a lot of the players.” The topics of conversation have been different this week. “He’s an opponent now so he’s not going to give me any trade secrets,” Andy Murray said. “We’ll probably have the chance to go to dinner (Friday), and we won’t be talking a lot of hockey.” The father and son are trying to pass it off as another game. Brady said he is thinking of it more as his first regular-season home game in the NHL. “The only team I’ll be watching will be my team,” Andy Murray said. “I won’t focus my attention on him at all. We’ve got a job to do. I won’t know how he played until I watch the tape after the game.” The game might be most difficult for Ruth, who is flying in with Andy’s mother for the game. “It would be nice to remain neutral but I’m not going to hope for a tie,” Ruth Murray said. “I’ll probably hope Andy gets a couple of points (with a St. Louis win) but Brady does well and isn’t too nervous playing his first game.” matthew.kredell@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Sony exits projector TV arena

first_imgTOKYO – Sony is dropping its money-losing rear-projection TV business worldwide to focus on two flat-panel technologies – liquid crystal display and organic light-emitting diode, the company said Thursday. Sales of rear-projection TVs had been declining recently as LCD TVs gain in popularity and get bigger, Sony Corp. spokesman Shinji Obana said. In October, Sony lowered its global sales forecast for rear-projection TVs – which uses a projector to create images on large screens – to 400,000 from 700,000, which is down from 1.1 million the previous fiscal year. By contrast, Sony expects to sell 10 million LCD TVs this fiscal year through March, up from 6.3 million the previous year. Sony sells 85 percent of its rear-projection TVs in the U.S., and about 10 percent in Europe, Obana said. Production at the three plants that make the rear-projection TVs in Japan, Mexico and Malaysia, will be halted, he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
