Scotland 22 New Zealand 51: The Verdict

first_imgDouble time: Tim Visser scored a braceIn quotes – losersScotland wing Tim Visser: “We can score tries and accumulate points but we need to look at the details now and get the little things right. They kept the ball, they were physical and good in the tackle contest. We lost all three areas and that’s how they very easily won this game.”Top statsScotland are the first team to have scored more than two tries against New Zealand this year, but they missed 21 tackles out of 77 and lost four lineouts out of 11. Possession was exactly 50/50 but the All Blacks made 473 metres compared to 218 for Scotland.Match highlightsSCOTLAND: Stuart Hogg; Sean Lamont, Nick De Luca (Max Evans 64), Matt Scott, Tim Visser; Greig Laidlaw (Ruaridh Jackson 65), Mike Blair (Henry Pyrgos 75); Ryan Grant (Allan Jacobsen 65), Ross Ford (Scott Lawson 64), Geoff Cross, Richie Gray, Jim Hamilton (Alastair Kellock 58), Alasdair Strokosch, Ross Rennie (David Denton 19), Kelly Brown (captain).Tries: Visser (2), Cross. Cons: Laidlaw 2. Pen: Laidlaw.NEW ZEALAND: Israel Dagg (Beauden Barrett 26); Cory Jane, Ben Smith, Tamati Ellison, Julian Savea; Daniel Carter, Piri Weepu (Tawera Kerr-Barlow 61); Wyatt Crockett (Tony Woodcock 72), Andrew Hore (Dane Coles 61), Owen Franks (Ben Franks 61), Luke Romano, Sam Whitelock (Ali Williams 67), Adam Thomson, Richie McCaw (captain), Victor Vito.Tries: Dagg, Savea (2), Jane, Hore, Smith. Cons: Carter 6. Pens: Carter 3.Sin-bin: Adam Thomson 44 min. Opening act: Israel Dagg scores the first of New Zealand’s six tries against Scotland at MurrayfieldBy Katie Field, Rugby World writerIn a nutshellTHREE TRIES in eight first-half minutes enabled New Zealand to take the game away from Scotland after a hard-fought first quarter, with the world champions showing their class with some sublime play. Dan Carter stepped through the Scotland line time and again, and the new centre partnership of Ben Smith and Tamati Ellison produced some slick handling and smooth support running to offer options left and right. Scotland did score three tries – two from Tim Visser and one from Geoff Cross – but the main blot on New Zealand’s copybook was the sin-binning of Adam Thomson, who was lucky not to see red instead of yellow as he put a foot to Alasdair Strokosch’s head.Key momentJust after the half-hour, Scotland needed to regroup as New Zealand had taken a 20-10 lead but instead they went offside at the restart, then engaged early in the scrum and conceded possession and territory to the All Blacks, who duly scored twice more in the next five minutes to stretch their lead to an unassailable 24 points.Leading man: Dan CarterStar manDan Carter was at his absolute best in the first half, stepping, dummying, feinting and passing to his ever-present support runners. His goalkicking success rate was also 90% to complete his rugby masterclass.Room for improvementScotland’s defence was found wanting as they missed tackles and stepped out of the line, letting the All Blacks take control of the game in the second quarter.Andy Robinson’s side must also cut out the silly errors, such as early scrum engagements. They lost some crucial lineout ball too. Their try count and ability to turn territory into points has improved but they need to produce quicker ball when they have sides under pressure.New Zealand will be disappointed with their second-half performance after showcasing so many skills before the break. Scotland were able to challenge them with some good pick-and-drive play, so the Kiwis will be looking to improve their close-quarter work to match their back play.In quotes – winnersMan of the Match Dan Carter: “There are areas still to work on. In the second half Scotland really took it to us and controlled the territory and the coaches won’t be happy that we conceded three tries. Our defence was too passive at times. Credit to this Scotland side – they played with a lot of passion and were extremely physical and scored some good tries.” Referee: Jerome Garces (France).

Hotshots: Meet young Dragons rugby star Ieuan Jones

first_imgHow did you get into rugby?I started at Bargoed Youth before having a few games at Pontypool and Newport. Then luckily the Dragons picked me up.Who have you looked up to in your career?As a No 8, Toby Faletau has been really helpful and has taken his chance for the Dragons and Wales brilliantly. Scott Quinnell was a childhood hero.How would you describe your style of play?I like having the ball in hand and having a go. I’m pretty agile around the park and like to offer myself as a lineout option. Who was your mentor?As well as Rob Appleyard and Alex Lawson at the Dragons, it’s my dad.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Houston, Texas] Como ser la Iglesia en el mundo tal como es hoy, fue el foco de un amplio debate el 15 de noviembre entre el obispo primado Michael Curry y otros participantes en la Conferencia Internacional de Clérigos Negros de la Iglesia Episcopal.Curry reconoció que la Iglesia y la sociedad enfrentan muchos desafíos, pero —dijo— que la Iglesia tiene un papel que desempeñar, a partir de acciones concretas que le muestren al mundo su dedicación a la reconciliación.En respuesta a una pregunta acerca de cómo la Iglesia debería enfocar el tema de las reparaciones a nativoamericanos, afroamericanos y nipoamericanos, Curry describió una senda por la cual la Iglesia podría ayudar a la sociedad estadounidense a abordar su pasado colectivo.Esa senda consiste en “intentar avanzar en una dirección donde el quehacer que conduce a la reconciliación esté vinculado al arrepentimiento y ese arrepentimiento esté vinculado a acciones genuinas que, por una parte, reconozcan el pasado y hagan algo para remediarlo”.El Rdo. John Carlton Hayden de Washington, D.C., recuerda un momento cuanto tanto él como el obispo primado Michael Curry eran jóvenes sacerdotes. Hayden habló durante una sesión de micrófono abierto el 15 de noviembre, la noche antes de que comenzara la Conferencia Internacional de Clérigos Negros de la Iglesia Episcopal en Houston, Texas. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSCurry sugirió que la Iglesia puede ayudar a tomar la iniciativa para la “creación de un nuevo futuro” más allá de lo que él llamó una parte dolorosa de la historia de Estados Unidos. Algunas diócesis han estado abordando su pasado y están tomando el desafío en serio, afirmó, añadiendo que ignorar los sufrimientos del pasado sólo significa que el dolor resurgirá por otras vías.Por ejemplo, explicó él, “parte de la cultura está empezando a crear un historial negativo de los latinoamericanos”.“Tenemos que frenar eso”, apuntó. “Hemos logrado definirlo y luego mostrar un camino a seguir. Estamos ahora en un ambiente donde eso va a tener la mayor importancia”.Cuando la Rda. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, rectora auxiliar de la iglesia episcopal El Calvario [Calvary Episcopal Church] en Washington, D.C. le preguntó a Curry cómo frenarlo, él le respondió con una pregunta: “¿tú qué crees?”.“No creo que tengamos nada que perder por decir la verdad al respecto”, le contestó ella. “Vamos a estar condenados si lo hacemos y condenados si no lo hacemos”, de manera que los episcopales, que están bien situados para empezar esta labor, deben “tomar la cruz y seguirla dondequiera que haya que ir”.El Rdo. Ronald Spann, sacerdote auxiliar en la iglesia de Cristo [Christ Church] en Grosse Pointe, Michigan, dijo que la Iglesia debe encontrar aliados que se sumen a la tarea necesaria de “sacarnos de la toxicidad” que viene con las divisiones.“Tenemos una nueva oportunidad de asumir [esta tarea] donde Martin Luther King la dejó”, dijo.La Rda. Kimberly Lucas, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Margarita [St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church] en Washington, D.C., contó que ella recientemente le había dicho a su congregación que la Iglesia Episcopal dedicaba demasiado tiempo a palmearse la espalda respecto a su carácter progresista, al tiempo que “ignora los demonios que aún se agitan en medio nuestro”.La Rda. Paula Clark, canóniga para el desarrollo del clero y los ministerios multiculturales de la Diócesis de Washington, habla acerca de la respuesta al incidente de vandalismo ocurrido en la noche del 12 al 13 de noviembre en la iglesia de Nuestro Salvador en Silver Spring, Maryland. Ella hizo su comentario durante una debate que tuvo lugar la víspera del comienzo de la Conferencia Internacional de Clérigos Negros de la Iglesia Episcopal que sesionará del 16 al 19 de noviembre en Houston, Texas. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS“Los desafié a encontrar medios a través de los cuales podamos dejar de denigrar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas de las zonas rurales, que dejemos de denigrar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas menos instruidos”, afirmó ella.En lugar de eso, retó a sus feligreses a “encontrar los medios de ser Jesús para ellos” y de “apoyar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas blancos de buena voluntad en hacer la labor que sólo ellos pueden hacer” y a reflexionar cómo la sociedad se empeña en preservar “la división entre los que son blancos y sufren y todos los demás de color—para mantener a esas personas en bandos opuestos en todo, y de tal manera que esas personas voten contra sus propios intereses”.Curry instó a los participantes a recordar un principio básico de la organización comunitaria que es afirmar el establecer relaciones interpersonales, de uno en uno, de las cuales saldrá una agenda para la cual deben abordarse problemas e intereses comunes.“Puede ser que una de las cosas más radicales que podamos hacer en este contexto cultural es crear el contexto para auténticas relaciones entre personas que son profundamente diferentes”, dijo, haciendo notar que los sociólogos dicen que Estados Unidos se está convirtiendo [en una sociedad] cada vez más “balcanizada, fragmentada y segregada”.“La verdad es que la sociedad estadounidense —el experimento democrático— depende actualmente de que nosotros construyamos redes de auténticas relaciones humanas con personas que son distintas a nosotros, y ese es un verdadero desafío”, dijo.Curry advirtió que si bien algunas personas podrían pensar que la evangelización no tiene nada que ver con las cosas sobre las cuales el grupo acababa de pasar más de una hora conversando, de hecho tiene que ver con todo ello porque “la evangelización no consiste en que más personas como nosotros se conviertan en nosotros”. La evangelización, por el contrario, consiste en ayudar a la Iglesia a crear y formar una comunidad de Dios, amorosa y profundamente diversa, como testigo al mundo, afirmó él, y luego ayudar al mundo a parecerse a eso también.– La Rda.
