Hosea Gear bumps Keith Earls out the road on his way to the tryline

first_imgThursday Jun 28, 2012 Hosea Gear bumps Keith Earls out the road on his way to the tryline Hosea Gear will be back playing for the Highlanders this weekend as Super Rugby returns. Against Ireland he celebrated a rare Test start with a powerful try, smashing the hapless Keith Earls out of the way, summing up a miserable night for Ireland. New Zealand famously beat Ireland 60-0, crushing not only the record books, but the spirits of the tourists, who had done so well and came close to sneaking a draw in the second Test.The All Blacks backlash in Test three was too much for them, as the World Champions were at their clinical best, scoring tries from all over the park. This one from Gear was one of the most memorable, coming from an Ireland lineout error, and resulting in an impressive sprint for the line.Young gun Julian Savea has taken his opportunities of late, meaning that the rare start for Gear, who has now played just nine Tests, was his chance to impress.“I would have done anything to get over the line and that’s what happened. I guess that keenness, that eagerness to get over the line again, I was quite happy with that,” he said.He said recently that, believe it or not, he’s actually trying to get bigger around the shoulder area, to be stronger in contact and avoid injuries. It’s clear that the only people at risk of injury are the opposition, especially if they go in too high, as Earls did on this occasion.He paid the price with a forearm to the chin, resulting in an exit from the field and a try to New Zealand. It wasn’t pretty in slow-mo, but made for good TV, some may say.View Highlights of the Third Test here  | Watch the full match hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Imprisoned journalist in critical condition, call for his release on medical grounds

first_img AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders today drew the international community’s attention to the rapidly deteriorating condition of imprisoned journalist Faramaz Allahverdiyev. According to his wife, Tahira Allahverdiyeva, he is “close to death.” He has already undergone an operation and doctors say another one would not improve his condition.A reporter with the independent daily Nota Bene, he has been in prison since 30 January, serving a two-year sentence for allegedly libelling interior minister Ramil Usubov in an article about his lack of political loyalty to former President Heydar Aliev.“We are very worried about Allahverdiyev’s condition,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His life will be in danger if he is not freed quickly. The judicial authorities should grant him an immediate release on medical grounds. We also call on the prison authorities to allow Nota Bene’s founder, Ilham Tumas, and its editor, Sardar Alibeyli, to visit him.”Allahverdiyev went on a hunger strike and sowed up his mouth in July, notifying the authorities in writing of his protest and calling on them to create an independent press council. He eventually called off the hunger strike at the prompting of his family and colleagues, who were concerned about his health.
