Warburton blames Lions discipline

first_imgThe Lions conceded 12 penalties in Dunedin – five more than the home side – and were beaten by Marty Banks’ decisive kick six minutes from time.The result represents the tourists’ second defeat of the tour to New Zealand after they were beaten by the Blues last Wednesday, and Warburton knows things must improve.”We gave away too much possession at the breakdown, we turned over a bit too much ball,” Warburton told Sky Sports. “I thought when we were direct, we looked good.”These experiences now, we’ll review the game in detail and there are things we’ll look back on.”I think there was a string of four penalties in a row in the second half where we were in decent territory. We gave them way too much territory and momentum.”The discipline on Saturday we kept the penalties to single figures, I’m not sure if we did today.”Respect between the two teams after a fantastic contest in Dunedin #AllForOne #LionsNZ2017 #HIGvBIL reactionhttps://t.co/wzvECE22SV pic.twitter.com/ruUINOkcTP— British&Irish Lions (@lionsofficial) 13 June 2017Waisake Naholo crossed early for the Highlanders before tries from Jonathan Joseph, Tommy Seymour and Warburton himself saw the Lions pull clear.However, Liam Coltman touched down on the hour mark as the Highlanders reduced the deficit to two, with Banks knocking over the decisive penalty after Owen Farrell was wayward with his first attempt having replaced Dan Biggar.A mammoth Elliot Daly penalty attempt late on fell just short, before Joseph spilled forward to end a desperate last attack from the Lions.Coach Warren Gatland commented: “We gave away a line-out for their try after having cleared our lines. We know we need to be better in those moments to make sure we don’t compound our errors.”We were inaccurate at times, they kicked the ball quite smartly to put us under pressure. The players are learning that it is about playing for 80 minutes and being in the moment.”We always said that coming to New Zealand was going to be tough against the Super Rugby sides. They are the best rugby nation in the world.”The Lions face the Maori All Blacks on Saturday as they close in on the first Test match on June 24.”The Maori is going to be the biggest challenge of this Tour [so far],” said Warburton. “They have picked a great squad, with a lot of guys with All Black experience, so we’re looking forward to that challenge.”last_img read more

Fitting send off as Nyongesa is laid to rest

first_img0Shares0000Pallbearers carrying the casket of the former Harambee Stars assistant coach Sammy Nyongesa. Photo/WANJIRU MACHARIANAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 7 – Fallen former Harambee Stars assistant coach, Sammy Nyongesa was on Friday accorded a fitting send off at his Ngata farm in Nakuru.Leaders at the burial ceremony which was filled with jokes and smiles asked the Government to appreciate his contributions to football development in Kenya. His students on the pitch who have since formed a strategic working team and set goals on ways to commemorate Nyongesa, asked the Government to revive the National Football Youth Centres to nature talents.Nyongesa was the brainchild behind the youth centres which produced great footballers among the Ambrose Ayoyi, John Shotoo Lukoe, Joseph Oduor and John Mo Muiruri among others.Instead of being teary and all emotional, Nyongesa’s widow and all his 12 children from three women, decided to treat the mourners with laughter as they shared their fun moments with him.Pallbearers carrying the casket of the former Harambee Stars assistant coach Sammy Nyongesa. Photo/WANJIRU MACHARIAThe wife, Ruth Atieno Nyongesa humorously described her husband as a generous man who scored on the pitch and elsewhere.“My husband was very generous and as you can see, I have a big family, they are all my children and I love them all,” she said to a round of laughter and applause from the mourners.She went ahead to introduce mothers of some of her children and asked if there were others unknown to her in the congregation.“If there are other offspring of Nyongesa in the congregation that have not been introduced to me, kindly come forward, you are mine too,” she added.She narrated how she and her husband would laugh at the fact that his opponents at Gor Mahia would taunt him as ‘senior bachelor’ then he decided to marry their own which made them bite the humble pie and they changed the title to ‘in-law’.The children described their father as loving playmate and a firm disciplinarian.Nyongesa died of prostate cancer on August 24 at War Memorial Hospital in Nakuru. He leaves behind a widow and 12 children. Most of the football players he mentored attended the ceremony.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

LAUSD pares back Grant ag program

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 But Wainwright, 58, who began working this month as a substitute teacher at Sylmar High, said a heart condition prevents him from teaching the night and weekend classes, even though he was offered the post by Grant High School Principal Linda Ibach. But he said he was glad the classes will continue. “That’s better than nothing,” he said. “To be able to save the program – that’s the bottom line for me.” The adult education division hopes to eventually align the program with Pierce College, so Grant students would be able to earn Advanced Placement credit in landscaping or horticulture, officials said. “When we can tie something in to a community college that can lead to a degree objective, as well as career opportunities, then it becomes an extra special program,” Lauritzen said. VAN NUYS – Grant High School was unable to save its successful agriculture program but will offer some classes after school and on Saturdays, although without its popular instructor, officials said Thursday. The program, taught for 28 years by Colin “Doc” Wainwright, ended Sept. 30, after a 300-student drop in enrollment forced campus officials to reassign four teachers and cut several classes. “We saved at least a semblance of the program,” said Los Angeles Unified school board member Jon Lauritzen, who fought to save the program. “It’s something we can revisit and redesign.” The after-school and weekend classes will be funded through an adult education program open only to the Grant students.
