The greatest hookers of all time: Peter Wheeler

first_imgHaving made his first-team bow in 1969, Wheeler finished on 349 appearances for Tigers. His ability was not consigned to domestic duty, though – far from it.By the time he met France on his Test debut in 1975, Wheeler had toured the Far East with England and been on standby for the 1974 Lions trip to South Africa. Peter Wheeler of England Major teams: Leicester 



Country: England
Test span: 1975-84
England caps: 48 (48 starts)

Lions caps: 7 (7 starts)
Test points: 0Adopting the role of chief executive at Leicester Tigers in January 1996 and moving to a director position 14 years later, Peter Wheeler is known to the current generation as an administrative heavyweight of European rugby.Since the advent of professionalism, he has helped uphold the traditions of a hugely proud club while maintaining a steady stream of silverware. For slightly older aficionados though, his on-field prowess and lengthy list of honours were even more impressive.The extracurricular activity around the pitch truly set him apart. Captaining Leicester to three consecutive John Player Cups between 1979 and 1981, he was integral to an innovative, expansive style of play.“We didn’t have the biggest pack of forwards at the time,” he would say on reflection two decades later. “But we were playing an open, attacking style of rugby that inspired people. We scored a lot of tries from all over the place.’ TAGS: The Greatest Players Peter Wheeler was tough and technically proficient. The England hooker was rarely bettered in the tight exchanges LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Some outstanding form for his country – he took four strikes against the head in a 23-6 defeat of Australia in 1976 – earned him a spot in the 1977 Lions squad and the then 28-year-old usurped Welshman Bobby Windsor to face the All Blacks three times.Only poor back play prevented the Lions taking the series and Wheeler was the heartbeat of Bill Beaumont’s dominant pack three years later in South Africa, when a 17-13 victory at Loftus Versfeld allowed the tourists to end the season on a high.last_img read more

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 4

first_imgThursday Mar 12, 2009 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 4 It was another exciting weeks action in the Super 14 as we saw some impressive performances from a few of the travelling sides, as well as one or two standout excellent tries.First up we have the Chiefs vs the Force and the lighting quick Leilia Masaga scoring a fantastic try early in the match, after some speedy shifting of the ball out wide.In the same match, Brendon Leonard and Richard Kahui crossed for nice tries as we saw the Chiefs run the ball freely.The Cheetahs went down to the Hurricanes in Wellington, but managed to create a nice try for big flanker Wayne Van Heerden.The Sharks are looking like one of the teams to beat this season, and will look to pick up a third away win on the trot when they face the Reds this weekend. The Bok trio of Ndungane, Jacobs, and Pieterson combined for their excellent breakaway try against the Blues in Auckland.Isaiah Toeava crossed for the Blues in the same match, and then we finish with Stormers hooker Deon Fourie showing some excellent acceleration to score a try a center would be proud of.

Halifax and Bank of Scotland to end charity credit card programme

first_imgHalifax and Bank of Scotland to end charity credit card programme Tagged with: corporate Finance Trading Howard Lake | 29 January 2012 | News Lloyds Banking Group is to withdraw its charity credit cards from February, ending 23 years of this fundraising activity. It has written to customers of the Halifax and Bank of Scotland with charity credit cards to let them know that their cards will be replaced next month with standard credit cards that do not raise funds for charity.The charities that have benefited from this programme are Cancer Research UK, the NSPCC and the Scottish SPCA. Cancer Research UK has received over £14.5 million from its card. In 2009 the cards raised about £1.1 million for the three charities.The Cancer Research UK card was launched in 1988, the NSPCC card in 1995, and the Scottish SPCA card in 1997. The Halifax Cancer Research UK won Best Charity Card Programme at the Card Awards in 2010.The Lloyds Banking Group cards usually gave a £20 donation to the charity when the card was first used, and after that a donation of between 0.25% and 0.5% of the amount spent on the card. A review at the Group found that there was limited demand for charity cards: less than one per cent of its customers use one.Other providers such as MBNA and the Cooperative Bank continue to provide charity credit cards. Most benefit a single charity, although the Virgin Charity Credit Card lets you choose from over 2,500 charities.Claire Rowney, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Cancer Research UK, said: “While it’s disappointing that the partnership has come to an end, we would like to thank all Halifax and Bank of Scotland staff and customers who have supported us over the years. We hope to find new ways to continue to work with Halifax and Bank of Scotland in the future.”Baroness Finlay, vice chair of the all-party parliamentary group on cancer, commented on the bank’s decision on BBC Radio 4’s Money Box programme. She said that the timing was not sensitive: “I think a bank which can produce that amount of additional money to give large bonuses has to look very hard at whether it should be giving back to the society on which it depends for its business.”New charity credit card scheme launched by CashflowsIn response to the withdrawal of the charity credit cards, business payment solutions provider Cashflows, part of the Voice Commerce Group, has announced a new charity credit card scheme.Founder and CEO Nick Ogden said: “Our card issuing services are able to provide support for charities and in the current economic situation it is vital that we try and support them, whilst they face inevitable cuts in donations across the board.“Fortunately, changes in legislation over the past few years, combined with support from the Government, the FSA and the Payments Council, are enabling new types of financial institutions to exist. There is a clear requirement for financial services to continue to support our economy as it slowly fights its way out of the ongoing credit squeeze and that is a role that Cashflows is keen to support.”www.lloydsbankinggroup.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1center_img Advertisement  59 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Rosemary Neidenberg: a long and valued life

first_imgRosemary Neidenberg had reached the age of 99 before she died on March 29. But losing her then was still too soon and too sad for all her comrades, family and friends.Rosie was a treasure, a loving hug, an encyclopedia of past memories. She was beautiful in every way, her sweet face a true mirror of her generous and joyful personality. She was also as reliable as an atomic clock, still producing the mailing labels for bundles of Workers World newspapers each week. She had been doing it from her apartment in Brooklyn for many years, once she could no longer travel to the Manhattan office of Workers World Party. Rosie at work in the Workers World Party office.Rosie was born in 1921 on March 8 — International Working Women’s Day — and raised in a conservative family in Buffalo, N.Y. Later in life she discovered a St. Christopher medal her mother had anxiously sewn into the lining of her jacket to protect her from evil influences.When she was seven, she spent nine months in bed with polio, using the time to read all 24 volumes of the works of Mark Twain. She survived, but had difficulty walking, so from then on she went everywhere on a bicycle. Nothing could keep her down. Later in life she told her friend and comrade Brenda Ryan of several events that had led her to become a Communist. She was first influenced by stories from her grandmother about how her grandfather had been electrocuted while working in a wheat processing plant. The company refused compensation to her grandmother and their four children, claiming he died of a heart attack.WW Managing Editor Monica Moorehead and Rosemary Neidenberg in 2018.Inspired by militant struggles in the 1940sRosie was in her twenties and working in Buffalo’s main downtown library when she first met Vince and Libby Copeland in the 1940s. At the time, they were in the Socialist Workers Party. Libby became Rosie’s best friend and comrade.Vince was a steelworker and union militant. In 1950, during the repressive days of the Cold War, he was fired from Bethlehem Steel. This provoked a wildcat strike by thousands of his fellow workers and a frenzy of redbaiting in the local press. Rosie was not intimidated by any of this. She embraced the struggle for socialism and against every form of bigotry that pollutes human relations under capitalism. Over the years, she played a very active role in the movements against racism, sexism and the oppression of LGBTQ2+ people. She also helped lighten the mood in those early days of virulent anticommunism, contributing her wit to skits and even operettas produced at the party headquarters that lampooned the blood-sucking ruling class. Her apartment was a cozy and fun hangout, especially for anyone needing even  temporary refuge. People confided in her about their personal problems, knowing she would never be judgmental. She helped a number of women who needed to terminate unwanted pregnancies. At a time when abortion was illegal, that took both courage and medical know-how.By the late 1940s, Sam Marcy and Dorothy Ballan had come from New York to Buffalo to be leaders of the branch there. Not long after, Dorothy’s cousin, Milt Neidenberg, arrived from Brooklyn to join them. Milt had been in the Navy during World War II. With his old peacoat, Brooklyn accent and intense gaze, he radiated charm as well as militancy in the class struggle. Rosemary recalled the moment she knew she was in love with Milt: at a street meeting where he was handing out fliers. “There was something about the way he leaned forward to people as he gave them out,” Rosie said later. From then until Milt’s death in 2018, he and Rosie were inseparable.A founding member of WWPIn 1959, Rosemary and Milt were among the founding members of Workers World Party. Led by Sam Marcy, members in three branches of the SWP — Buffalo, New York City and Youngstown, Ohio — had broken with that organization over its support for counterrevolutionary developments in Eastern Europe, as well as its reluctance to recognize the proletarian class character of the revolutions in China and Korea. They had carried out a long ideological struggle within the SWP before finally deciding it was time to leave and build a new organization. Happily, that break and the founding of WWP coincided with the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and the opening of a new era of struggle for socialism.Rosie and Milt eventually moved from Buffalo to New York City in 1965 to help build the Workers World Party center there.Rosie brought with her the kind of personal warmth and interest in others that is harder to maintain in a big city like New York, with its five boroughs and the difficulty of getting around, especially for someone with limited mobility. But it didn’t slow her down. She maintained her level of work, her participation in party events and her keen interest in people that was part of her politics.For many years, when the party headquarters was on the third floor of an old walkup building on West 21st Street in Manhattan, she climbed all those stairs to faithfully staff the office once a week.Helping make historyThis was a time when WWP was in the forefront of many historic struggles.In 1962 Youth Against War & Fascism, WWP’s youth group, held the first U.S. demonstration against the war in Viet Nam. President Ho Chi Minh heard of it and publicly commended the action. WWP later aided in the formation of an antiwar union within the armed services — the American Servicemen’s Union — that put out a regular newspaper and had members in U.S. bases all over the world.  The party also appealed to the antiwar movement to join forces with the Black struggle, raising the slogan “Stop the War against Black America.” It supported the Black Panther Party when it was under attack and in 1974 organized a march of 20,000 people in Boston to drive back a racist terror campaign gripping the city.In June 1967 WWP held the first U.S. demonstration to defend the Palestinian struggle, during the Six-Day War.In 1970 YAWF Women in New York revived International Working Women’s Day with a huge rally at the Women’s House of Detention, where both Ethel Rosenberg and Angela Davis had been incarcerated. The same year, the party joined the historic struggle against lesbian and gay oppression at the first Gay Pride march. Rosemary was a great friend of Leslie Feinberg, a party member and leader in the LGBTQ2+ movement. She was deeply saddened when Leslie died from a tick-borne infection in 2014.She supported all these struggles with her usual enthusiasm.Left to right, WWP comrades Minnie Bruce Pratt, Rosie Neidenberg, Milt Neidenberg, Leslie Feinberg, in Jersey City, N.J., 2008.Warm, frank and honestWhile Rosemary was enthusiastic and warm to her comrades, she was always frank and honest in giving her opinions. In fact, that was one of her most endearing qualities. Ask a question, get a straight answer. Along with everything else they did, she and Milt found the time and energy to bring a new life into being — their adored daughter Nina. They were kind and loving parents, so proud of Nina and the grandchildren she brought them.Singing the Internationale at Milt Neidenberg’s memorial.Rosemary Neidenberg was fortunate in understanding the world around her and making choices that put her on the right side of history. She led a long and valued life, making many contributions to WWP along the way, and is deeply missed.There is much more about Rosemary that needs to be said. In these times of the COVID-19 epidemic, meetings and memorials are restricted. Hopefully, an online space will be made available soon for comments by all those who knew and loved her.  Rosemary Neidenberg ¡presente!

This means, he said, an additional 1,000 full time students generates £10 million each year for the local economy.Concluding, he called on all the institutions and people of the city to come together to support the growth of Magee. 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic WhatsApp Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firecenter_img Pinterest Nesbitt urges people and businesses of Derry to support Magee expansion Google+ Facebook Twitter News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Pinterest 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North WhatsApplast_img read more

City must offer graduates more

first_img Higher education colleges and employers should work together to create more opportunities for graduates in the capital.According to a two-year assessment of London’s graduate labour market, institutes should encourage entrepreneurial skills, improve career guidance and arrange more effective work placements.The report carried out by Focus Central London, South Bank University and the University of North London shows that employers in different graduate labour markets have differing views about their needs.Information flow between graduates and employers should be improved to allow graduates to adapt to suit their chosen employment area. Michelle Eardley, responsible for graduate recruitment at the Woolwich, called on higher education institutions’ careers services to prepare graduates better for the frustrations they are likely to face in their first year at work.She said, “The primary problem we have is graduates’ unrealistic expectations of how quickly they are going to be given responsibility. They forget that they need to spend a while getting experience before they are given responsibility for big initiatives.“It would be useful if careers services were able to prepare them more for those frustrations so they can get the most of the time they are given by their employer to bed down and get experience.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
