Wales centre Nick Tompkins: “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made”

first_imgThe other off-field challenge has been all the extra attention, whether it be in mainstream media or social networking sites. The bigger the stage, the bigger the hype, so he’s had to learn how to deal with it all. In that regard, coming into the environment at 25 helps.Being at a club like Saracens, he’s seen many of his peers advance to international level while he’s had to wait – impatiently at times! – for a call-up. Yet an increased level of maturity has ensured he made a smooth transition when taking that step.“I wasn’t ready back then. I wasn’t ready mentally and I maybe wasn’t ready physically. Every path is different. I’m the same age as Maro Itoje and looking at his success, I was thinking, ‘Why am I not making it?’ I started doubting myself.“Looking back on those years from 22 to 24, it helped me immeasurably. I was blaming other factors and other people, so I stopped doing that and put the onus on what I was doing. I took control, focused on myself and changed my life.“I realised I couldn’t go on four-week holidays and not do anything! I worked a lot harder on my fitness. I got two proper pre-seasons under my belt and feel that’s the foundation for me getting fitter and stronger. I think things like that have been the biggest difference.“Now I’m trying to enjoy every second of it (playing for Wales). It’s been brilliant, amazing. I’ve been fortunate to play in Champions Cup games and finals at Saracens where the standard is not far away from Test quality; it’s the pressure that’s so much more.“The big learning for me is how much noise there is off the pitch – it’s ten times higher than a club game. I feel a lot more pressure to play well. Every little mistake is magnified and it’s hard not to dwell on that but I’ve got to get the next action in. I can’t let moments like the intercept pass (against France) define me; that’s not who I am and I’ve got to bounce back if I want to be the best.”Silver service: Nick Tompkins lifts the Gallagher Premiership trophy last year (Getty Images)Tompkins may have made errors in the Six Nations matches that were played – and it’s always harder when you’re compared to someone of such class as Jonathan Davies, for so long a fixture in the No 13 shirt – but he remained one of Wales’ most impressive performers as the team got to grips with a more attack-orientated style implemented by Pivac and Stephen Jones.He embraced that willingness to keep ball in hand and was one of the big running threats in the championship, ranking third for carries (43) and metres (296) of all players. He also has a knack for taking the ball into contact and emerging still in possession; some have described it as him being wriggly, he puts it down to his “fight”.When we next get to see Tompkins showing his wares on a rugby field is up in the air due to the widespread postponements. What is expected is for him to join Cardiff Blues on a loan deal next season – one of several such agreements following Saracens’ relegation to the Greene King IPA Championship for salary cap breaches.For all the highs of starting his international career, there are the lows of the club’s situation. “My overriding feeling is genuine sadness. Sadness that this group will probably split up and I won’t be able to play with these guys again; for some lads this will probably be their last year and this is how it’s ended.“It frustrates me that people still believe the only reason we won is because of money; you still need collectiveness, you still need love, you still have to put it all in. I get why people are angry, but it’s not just about money otherwise French teams would be running riot.”This Saracens journey may be coming to an end but his Wales one is just beginning. Midfield competition will increase when Davies returns from injury but Tompkins has already done enough to ensure he’s in the selection mix. Expect to see more of his exuberance on the pitch once play resumes. Wales centre Nick Tompkins: “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made”Nick Tompkins is as much a bundle of energy off the field as he is on it. The speed with which he talks is reminiscent of the turn of pace he demonstrates when exploiting a gap in the defensive line; his enthusiasm is as evident in conversation as when celebrating a try. There’s a real exuberance to all he does.We opt for an elbow bump as a greeting in these times of coronavirus and decide to kick things off with his verdict on that try. It’s a few days after Wales’ 33-30 defeat by England at Twickenham when Tompkins launched the length-of-the-field move from the second-half kick-off that resulted in Justin Tipuric crossing the whitewash.It’s been described as one of the great Six Nations tries, but the score at the forefront of Tompkins’s mind is the one he touched down against Italy on his Wales debut. “I saw the gap and was screaming at Dan (Biggar) to give me the ball as soon as possible because I thought the gap would close,” says the 25-year-old.“It was still there and I just went for it; the rest is history. The feeling going over was amazing – you never get that kind of thing back – and the lads have got into me about the celebration. A double fist pump!”So what of the incredible try against England? He’s watched it back a few times. Elliot Daly over-chases, allowing Tompkins to run clear, then he fixes another Saracens team-mate, George Kruis, before passing to Josh Navidi – “I did think, ‘What if I dummy and go myself?’ because it was George!”.The pass was the right option and he kept in support to get the ball back and ship it on to Tomos Williams before being tackled by Manu Tuilagi. He recovered from that hit in time to see Tipuric finish things off.Reflecting now, he says it was all done in the moment, on instinct. What took a little longer was opting to play for Wales. He represented England U20 and Saxons but was never ‘captured’, meaning he was still eligible for Wales through his grandmother.Saracens coach Alex Sanderson suggested recently that Tompkins had been overlooked by England because he was adjudged to be too small for Test level, but that was the first Tompkins himself had heard of it.He had a great experience with the Saxons in South Africa in 2016, under coaches Ali Hepher and Alan Dickens, but there had been no communication over the years from Eddie Jones or the England coaches.In contrast, he first had conversations with the Welsh set-up last season, while Warren Gatland was at the helm. Things intensified when Wayne Pivac took the reins post-World Cup and he was named in the Six Nations squad after opting for the feathers rather than the rose.On the ball: Nick Tompkins passes against England in the Six Nations(Getty Images)“It was a year in the making,” he says. “It was a huge decision because it could affect me moving away and it was a big challenge, but it’s turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made.“I was talking to friends and family, and they all had different views. Some said I should wait (for England) and then lots said it was an opportunity too good to pass up. I ended up agreeing with that.“I went to a couple of Saracens team-mates for advice and they couldn’t be more excited for me. Alex Goode has been a really good sounding board and he said, ‘Don’t even hesitate – it’s a great opportunity, do it’. The coaches at Saracens were really positive about it as well. That really helped my decision.”He admits to being a little nervous coming into camp as an “outsider” but the warm welcome put him at ease, plus he had Saracens team-mates Liam Williams and Rhys Carré to help him settle in. Alun Wyn Jones’s faux pas in calling him ‘Neil’ when talking to Owen Farrell at the Six Nations launch ensured he was quick to receive a nickname too.Then there was his work on the anthem. He has a lot of Welsh cousins – he talks of fond memories of going to Llandudno Pier with gran Enid – and they gave him a phonetic version to help. “It took me an hour a day for two weeks to learn it and I was still terrible, so I got some pointers off Ken (Owens). I couldn’t come in and not have learnt it.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Nick Tompkins has no regrets about opting for Wales instead of England.

Diocese of Chicago and Episcopal Church reach settlement with ACNA…

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York The Episcopal Diocese of Chicago and The Episcopal Church have reached a settlement with the Diocese of Quincy in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and 15 parishes and missions in that diocese over real property, other assets and church records that were part of the former Episcopal Diocese of Quincy and The Episcopal Church in 2008.The settlement, the terms of which are confidential, includes property at issue in a suit filed in 2013 in a circuit court in Peoria.“I give thanks for your perseverance and courage through the past eleven years, and I am grateful that this settlement will benefit God’s mission in the Peoria Deanery for many years to come,” Bishop Jeffrey D. Lee of Chicago wrote in a letter to the people of the deanery. “Participating in your ministry has been one of the great joys of my time as bishop of Chicago, and I continue to rejoice at your commitment to our beloved Episcopal Church and the communities and people you serve,” added Lee, who will retire in August.The congregations of St. James, Griggsville; St. James, Lewistown; the Episcopal Church of St. George, Macomb; and All Saints, Rock Island will benefit from the settlement funds, Lee said.  Other funds recovered in the settlement will be held in the endowments of the Diocese of Chicago for the benefit of the Peoria Deanery.With this settlement, the Diocese of Chicago has two remaining legal matters with congregations in the ACNA Diocese of Quincy. Those concern the property and assets of Grace Episcopal Church in Galesburg and Christ Church in Moline, whose Episcopal congregation is now part of All Saints, Rock Island.“We hope that these ongoing proceedings will also conclude by bringing us to a place of reconciliation and mutual respect in Christ,” Lee said.A majority of the clergy and members of the former Episcopal Diocese of Quincy voted to leave The Episcopal Church in November 2008 over issues including the church’s decision to include gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members more fully in its life and ministry. The remaining members of the continuing Episcopal Diocese of Quincy reunited with the Diocese of Chicago in September 2013 and form its Peoria Deanery.The Episcopal Diocese of Chicago includes more than 34,000 Episcopalians in congregations and chaplaincies across northern and west central Illinois. The Episcopal Bishop of Chicago is the Rt. Rev. Jeffrey D. Lee. To learn more, visit www.episcopalchicago.org.

FTA With Panama Will Enter Into Force on Halloween

first_imgSource: NAFB News Serivce Facebook Twitter The United States Trade Representative has announced that the U.S.-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement will enter into force next week. The announcement follows completion of a thorough review by the U.S. and Panama of their respective laws and regulations related to the implementation of the agreement. USTR Ron Kirk says Panama – under this comprehensive agreement – will eliminate tariffs and other barriers to U.S. exports. He says this will promote economic growth and expand trade between the two nations. Kirk adds that Panama is one of the fastest growing economies in Latin America – expanding 10.6-percent in 2011 – with forecasts of between five and eight-percent annual growth through 2017. He says that adds up to support for more well-paying jobs across the U.S.U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack says Panama is an important market for America’s farmers and ranchers. The U.S. exported more than 504-million dollars of agricultural products to the country in 2011. After entry into force of the agreement on October 31st – Vilsack says nearly half of U.S. exports of agricultural commodities to Panama will immediately become duty-free – including wheat, barley, soybeans, high-quality beef, bacon and almost all fruit and vegetable products. Most of the remaining tariffs will be eliminated within 15 years.NCBA Encouraged by News on Panama FTAThe National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is greatly encouraged by the news that the U.S.-Panama free trade agreement will enter into force next Wednesday (October 31). NCBA Vice President Bob McCan says the cattle industry has been waiting on implementation of this agreement for a long time – and is looking forward to the increased trade opportunities with Panama. McCan notes the agreement immediately eliminates the 30-percent tariff on prime and choice beef cuts. All other duties will be phased out over the next 15 years. Panama also modified its import requirements related to BSE to be consistent with international standards. McCan says implementation of the agreement is a positive step forward for American cattlemen and women – as it provides U.S. ranchers access to a valuable market. He says that’s one reason NCBA has been an outspoken supporter of the Panama agreement and others like it. He says they not only increase market access – but provide stable export markets based on internationally recognized scientific standards.

UK: Joint Helicopter Operations on Cougar 13 Exercise

first_img October 24, 2013 View post tag: UK Army Apache helicopters have joined Navy Sea King, Merlin and Lynx helicopters on board HMS Illustrious for two weeks in the Gulf as part of the ongoing Cougar 13 deployment.The Apache helicopters from 656 Squadron 4 Regiment Army Air Corps joined Illustrious in the waters off the United Arab Emirates as she took part in Exercise Sea Khanjar before then returning to the UK. This is the first time UK Apache helicopters have operated in the Gulf.During the Libya conflict in 2011 Apaches flew from the deck of HMS Ocean making repeated strikes against Col Gaddafi’s forces.Currently Britain’s helicopter gunship – in just 14 months’ time Apaches will be joined on the front line by Wildcat, which is entering service with the Fleet Air Arm at Yeovilton.The Apaches, personnel and equipment of 656 Squadron arrived on Illustrious to augment the existing air group, demonstrating how well the Army Air Corps is starting to integrate with navy warships and squadrons – a role that will need to be developed further, especially as the new aircraft carriers come into operation.Within two days of their arrival the Apaches were ready for their first operational sortie alongside the ship’s Sea King, Merlin and Lynx helicopters.Officer Commanding 656 Squadron, Major Piers Lewis, said,“The Royal Navy have been very patient with us learning their way of business. Together, we have proved the superb capability the Apache can deliver when working with the ship, its air surveillance helicopters and the Army and Navy Lynx aircraft.“I can only imagine what could be achieved when Apache operates with the new Wildcat helicopter and HMS Queen Elizabeth.”The Cougar 13 deployment departed the UK in August and operates in the Mediterranean, Red Sea, the Gulf, and Horn of Africa.It involves exercising with partner nations, and demonstrating the UK Armed Forces’ capacity to project an effective maritime component anywhere in the world as part of the Royal Navy’s Response Force Task Group, commanded by Commodore Paddy McAlpine OBE ADC Royal Navy.The RFTG is the United Kingdom’s high readiness maritime force, comprising Royal Navy ships, submarines, aircraft and a landing force of Royal Marines, at short notice to act in response to any contingency tasking if required.[mappress]Press Release, October 24, 2013; Image: Navy View post tag: Exercise View post tag: Joint Training & Education View post tag: 13 View post tag: Cougar View post tag: Operations View post tag: Helicopter Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: Joint Helicopter Operations on Cougar 13 Exercise UK: Joint Helicopter Operations on Cougar 13 Exercise Share this articlelast_img read more
