Wales: Five things we learnt v England

first_img ‘Spreadsheet Rugby’ found outWales’ opening 40 minutes at Twickenham were undoubtedly the worst of Warren Gatland’s tenure. It was a complete meltdown of everything on which Gatland’s style of rugby depends. Wales managed to secure just 39% of the ball and 37% of the territory in the first half. Combine this with a startling tackle completion of just 75%, a lineout that struggled hugely in the opening ten minutes and the concession of five penalties after just 20 minutes – and Wales were totally shut down. Shut down to the point, where at half-time they didn’t have a single point on the board and more worrying still, particularly in modern Test rugby, hadn’t even managed to secure single a kick at goal. Wales had only been in England’s 22 once in the opening 36 minutes.It’s mine! Maro Itoje wins a lineout ahead of Taulupe Faletau. Photo: Getty ImagesWales struggled hugely at the breakdown where the jackaling of Dan Cole and the hugely impressive Maro Itoje wreaked havoc. Wales’ inability to adapt to Craig Joubert’s desire for a very clean and quick breakdown was also hugely costly. England were also effective in targeting Wales’ right wing; bombarding Alex Cuthbert’s channel with carriers and high balls.But as worrying as the key performance indicators were, far more alarming was Wales’ inability to change their game plan in the face of a complete first-half whitewash. It wasn’t until the last 15 minutes where Wales seemingly ditched the spreadsheet rugby, with its predicable running angles and obsession with high balls in between the ten-metre lines, and played the rugby that they are more than capable of. Welsh rugby was taught a lesson at Twickenham; whether it is learnt from is another matter.Coaching staff need to accept some blameThe Welsh camp is a very honest, sometimes brutal, environment, where individual errors and drops in performance are often aired for all to see. Indeed, Warren Gatland was very quick to criticise his players’ performance in the opening 40 minutes in Twickenham. But if the players accept responsibility, then so must the coaching staff.Rethink? Warren Gatland was at a loss to explain Wales’ poor first half. Photo: Getty ImagesThe reality is that Wales are playing a hugely one-dimensional style of rugby, the effectiveness of which is built entirely on fitness and size. It’s not even as if Wales’ style of play has been ‘found out’, there is nothing to find out. You don’t need to dress in camouflage, ascend a tree and ‘long lens’ the Welsh training camp to discover their game plan – it has always been thus. When it works, Gatland’s ethos can be effective, but when it doesn’t there is no other option. This Six Nations is the start of a new four-year World Cup cycle; surely Wales can’t copy and paste this style until 2019?A defensive meltdownWales’ worst 40 minutes with that ball in hand, under Warren Gatland, also coincided with the worst half of defensive rugby under Shaun Edwards. Wales’ tackle completion was spectacularly low – just 75%. Wales completed only 80 out of a 106 tackles – missing a staggering 19 tackles in the first half. It was a weird anomaly, and a huge factor in Wales’ demise. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Under pressure: Alex Cuthbert was continually tested by England in defence. Photo: Getty ImagesWales’ style of play over the past 12 months has been characterised by an inability to score tries, yet has been able to rely on a high goalkicking percentage and military grade defence to close out games. But without a tackle completion of 90% or higher, Wales looked hugely susceptible. The tackle completions were particularly low amongst the Welsh back-line, with the usually reliable Dan Biggar, Jamie Roberts and Jon Davies missing nine tackles between them. Add to that four missed tackles from Alex Cuthbert and two from George North and Wales’ usually watertight defence had turned into a water filter. It will probably be another decade before Wales defend as poorly as that.Standout performance from Liam WilliamsWhilst the bulk of the Welsh squad will need to cling onto the positives that occurred in the last 15 minutes, Liam Williams can be proud of his entire 80 minutes. The full-back’s performance would have stood out even amongst a positive Welsh display; on Saturday its splendour was enhanced further by the ugliness that surrounded it.Bright spark: Liam Williams wins a high ball against England. Photo: InphoOnce again Williams was masterful under the high ball and, as ever, his defence was near immaculate. But it was his tackle bust and ‘cat flap’ for George North’s try which must receive the praise. With Rhys Priestland on the field, standing refreshingly flat, the Welsh back-line finally gave Williams the opportunity to hit the 13 channel at pace, where his aggressive angle and soft hands cut the English defensive line to shreds. It was a rare highlight on a murky day for the Welsh team.Crossing the line is no longer enoughThere was a time in the amateur era where crossing the line with the ball was enough to get the try. Due to the less intensive defensive systems and fitness levels it was more common for players to cross the whitewash unattended. As we saw in Twickenham, that is no longer the case – Ben Youngs’s attempt in the second minute and Dan Cole’s in the 14th being prime examples. Plenty to ponder: Wales’ Dan Biggar looks dejected after their defeat. Photo: Getty Images center_img Defensive disasters, predictable play and coaching conundrums – the key learnings from Wales’ defeat by England No try: Dan Cole is held up as he tries to touch the ball down. Photo: InphoFew players now cross the line alone, most now have at least two defenders clinging onto them like barnacles on a large sea mammal – and it is there where the battle to ground the ball begins. Grounding the ball has almost become a game within a game. The grounding, with the introduction of the TMO, has almost become as identifiable a subsection of rugby as the scrum or lineout. Weirdly, blocking all of the feasible camera angles, with defensive bodies, has almost become as important as the tackle itself.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

Kenyan, Ugandan primates respond to letter on sexuality

The Methodists are about to break in- two because of them . I am comforted by the fact that the Episcopal Church in this country will not”cave” to their homophobic bigotry. God bless theECUSA! The Rev. Dr. Charles Morris says: Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Vic Spencer says: February 5, 2014 at 5:56 pm The Archbishops of Kenya and Uganda would do well to read the 1998 Lambeth resolution they quote: “…recognises that there are among us persons who experience themselves as having a homosexual orientation. Many of these are members of the Church and are seeking the pastoral care, moral direction of the Church, and God’s transforming power for the living of their lives and the ordering of relationships. We commit ourselves to listen to the experience of homosexual persons and we wish to assure them that they are loved by God and that all baptised, believing and faithful persons, regardless of sexual orientation, are full members of the Body of Christ;[…] calls on all our people to minister pastorally and sensitively to all irrespective of sexual orientation and to condemn irrational fear of homosexuals, violence within marriage and any trivialisation and commercialisation of sex.”Isn’t that what have +Cantuar and +Ebor said ? February 11, 2014 at 9:59 pm In the beginning of new millennium there were many debates over the controversial spirituality on sexual orientation. Finally dusts are settling down at least for the moment favoring world views on sexual orientation over biblical teaching. As Pope Francis said who we are to judge, God will judge at Judgment Day with individual book of life. All Provinces under sea of Anglican communions are independent and let them decide which path they believe best for them, ultimately holiness of individual life matter.

The world will continue to ponder and challenge religious and/or secular leaders who welcome acting on bigotry.

It invites us all to prayer, reflection and conversation throughout our Church worldwide. One of the main factors causing it to be such a problem now is the fundamentalism not only in Africa (Christian and Islamic), but right here in the U.S.A., including the T. E. C. So, a tremendous amount of good theological and biblical teaching will have to be done, over a long period of time. In addition, as is true in American society, more discussions and friendships will have to become realities of our common human experience for us all to realize, as have I over decades recently, that LGBT persons are persons just like the rest of us, and that their sexual orientations are like left-handedness, not to be condemned. It follows that their love relations and life-long commitments are not to be condemned as some kind of weird “disorientation” or sin. The Bible’s writers knew not a thing about same-sex life-long monogamous marriage or commitment in true person-to-person love and devotion. History, including that of the church and its theology, is a developing reality, never staying put, static or “frozen.” (Isn’t the same true of the entire universe?) Let us not ourselves become frozen in time (or theology or biblical interpretation or relationships) either! A final thought: The chief and deciding sacrament of the church is Holy Baptism. That makes us full members of the Church. All other Sacraments of the Church (except the Holy Eucharist, which of course is the other chief Sacrament of the Gospel), like Holy Matrimony and Ordination, Confirmation and so on–these are “lesser” and therefore once one is baptized he or she should not be denied any of those, assuming one is ready and able to take them on responsibly and faithfully.

At the moment I fear that we cannot be sure.Regrettably, their intervention has served to encourage those who want to normalise homosexual lifestyles in Africa and has fuelled prejudice against African Anglicans. We are committed to biblical sexual morality and to biblical pastoral care, so we wholeheartedly stand by the assurance given in the 1998 Lambeth Conference resolution that those who experience same sex attraction are ‘loved by God and that all baptised, believing and faithful persons, regardless of sexual orientation, are full members of the Body of Christ.’May God in his mercy grant that we may hold to the fullness of his truth and the fullness of his grace.The Most Rev’d Dr Eliud WabukalaArchbishop, Anglican Church of Kenya and Chairman, GAFCON Primates Council31st January 2014*****Archbishop Stanley Ntagali Comments on Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill, the Church of England’s “Pilling Report,” and the Open Letter from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York30th January 2014The Church of Uganda is encouraged by the work of Uganda’s Parliament in amending the Anti-Homosexuality Bill to remove the death penalty, to reduce sentencing guidelines through a principle of proportionality, and to remove the clause on reporting homosexual behaviour, as we had recommended in our 2010 position statement on the Bill. This frees our clergy and church leaders to fulfill the 2008 resolution of our House of Bishops to “offer counseling, healing and prayer for people with homosexual disorientation, especially in our schools and other institutions of learning. The Church is a safe place for individuals, who are confused about their sexuality or struggling with sexual brokenness, to seek help and healing.”Accordingly, we are grateful for the reminder of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to fulfill such commitments as stated in the 2005 Communique of the Primates Meeting held in Dromantine, Northern Ireland.We would further like to remind them, as they lead their own church through the “facilitated conversations” recommended by the Pilling Report, that the teaching of the Anglican Communion from the 1998 Lambeth Conference, from Resolution 1.10, still stands. It states that “homosexual practice is incompatible with Scripture,” and the conference “cannot advise the legitimising or blessing of same sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions.”It was the Episcopal Church USA (TEC) and the Anglican Church of Canada’s violations of Lambeth 1.10 which caused the Church of Uganda to break communion with those Provinces more than ten years ago. We sincerely hope the Archbishops and governing bodies of the Church of England will step back from the path they have set themselves on so the Church of Uganda will be able to maintain communion with our own Mother Church.Furthermore, as our new Archbishop of Canterbury looks toward future Primates Meetings and a possible 2018 Lambeth Conference of Bishops, we would also like to remind him of the 2007 Primates Communique from Dar es Salaam, which says that there are “consequences for the full participation of the Church in the life of the Communion” for TEC and those Provinces which cannot“Make an unequivocal common covenant that the Bishops will not authorize any Rite of Blessing for same-sex unions in their dioceses or through” their governing body;“Confirm…that a candidate for episcopal orders living in a same-sex union shall not receive the necessary consent.”It is clear that the Episcopal Church in the USA and the Anglican Church of Canada have not upheld these commitments, and so we do pray for the Archbishop of Canterbury as he considers whether or not to extend invitations to their Primates for the next Primates Meeting or to their Bishops for the 2018 Lambeth Conference. To withhold these invitations would be a clear signal of his intention to lead and uphold the fullness of the 1998 Lambeth Resolution 1.10.The Most Rev. Stanley NtagaliARCHBISHOP OF CHURCH OF UGANDA.

The only people in the “new Testament” called to be with one wife are bishops. And if one assumes that the African bishops accept that the Christian Bible includes the Hebrew Scriptures, then one can have many wives, as many Muslims do. I remember one African archbishop admitting that many of his Christian folk did indeed have more than one wife.

But the Jhonlin Group finally filed its criminal complaint, which the police see as grounds not only for arresting Sumedi but also for continuing to hold him. Sumedi has to remain in detention because otherwise he “might continue to write stories about this case,” a police spokesman said.“Writing articles about ongoing disputes is precisely the basis of journalism and, furthermore, is also one of the best ways of resolving them harmoniously,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“We urge South Kalimantan governor Sahbirin Noor to order Diananta Putra Sumedi’s immediate and unconditional release. The harassment to which he has been subjected sends a terrifying message to all journalists – ‘Don’t investigate the activities of one of the country’s biggest palm oil producers or you will end up in prison’.”SuspicionsThis is not the first time a reporter has been arrested in connection with their coverage of allegedly illegal land seizures by oil palm plantations. Muhammad Yusuf died in detention in unclear circumstances in 2018, five weeks after being arrested in South Kalimantan province as a result of a complaint by MSAM, another Jhonlin Group subsidiary, over his coverage of its disputes with local indigenous groups.The case aroused suspicions about the independence of South Kalimantan’s institutions, inasmuch as the province’s governor, Sahbirin Noor, is the uncle of the wealthy businessman who owns MSAM. Indonesia is ranked 119th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.
