first_imgPresident of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Michael Ricketts stated that members of the country’s national senior women’s team, the Reggae Girlz, were scheduled to receive outstanding incentive payments yesterday for their historic FIFA Women’s World Cup qualification. Ricketts, who was en route to South Africa, where the team is engaged in a one-week training camp ahead of a friendly international with the hosts on Sunday, also told The Gleaner that he is expecting a resolution to the long-standing contract dispute with the girls. “The contracts have not yet been signed, but we have managed to identify the funds that we promised them for qualifying, so they have received the incentive for qualifying,” said Ricketts, who shared that the monies were expected to be transferred to the players’ accounts yesterday. “We had discussions with the coaches, and we will have further discussions just to ensure that we speak on issues that fall under our portfolio because that has happened too many times in the recent past, and we have tried our best not to have that again,” Ricketts continued.Nevertheless, he is hoping that the issues relating to the contracts for the players can finally be put to bed before they depart South Africa.“I do hope that by the time we go to South Africa, it will all be finalised … we will definitely be engaging them in some discussions so that as soon as possible, we can settle any issue we have,” he said.The JFF boss added that he is expecting a good performance from the team against the South Africans on Sunday.“I have no idea how strong South Africa is, but I have all the faith in the girls. I have said from day one that we might not win the World Cup, but we will be competitive, and that’s what I’m looking for,” said Ricketts.Jamaica qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, which will take place in France from June 7-July 7, becoming the first Caribbean team to achieve the feat.last_img read more

first_imgRugby Union BY PRISCILLA HARRY Capital Rugby Union needs to get strict on security and disciplinary issues that result in violence in the code. President for Capital Rugby Union Kori Chan said there is absolutely no place for violence and abuse in sport and rugby is no exception. “The game of rugby is bigger than any one person, club or association,” he said. “As custodians of the game, their legacy will be the condition or state that our sport is in, when we pass the mantle on to the next generation. “But as a union they believe they have abided by the rules, regulations, values and principles dictated by world rugby, in addressing this matter. “We have also shown due care and best practice in responding to the interests of our internal and external stakeholders.” Meanwhile, Nova RFUC is shocked at what transpired on Sunday and their immediate priorities have been to facilitate Elipema Kini’s medical management and connect with his family, counsel Nova players and supporters and work with CRU management and other CRU clubs including Harlequins to find strategies moving forward to eliminate violence from the game and ensure this event never happens again. Nova RFUC manager Dr Kapua Kapua applauded the CRU management and CRU club presidents on the rulings on the incident and the way that the matter had been dealt with immediately and professionally. “We thank the Harlequins club for their positive approach to dealing with the matter and taking ownership and accountability,” Kapua added. “We respect the maturity shown by Harlequins and will work closely with them, CRU management and other CRU clubs to eliminate all forms of violence and abuse from the game. “Elipema Kini is the NOVA club captain and a respected founder of the club while his wife Leilani is also Nova vice president and so the family is deeply rooted in the club.” He said Elipema is a leader of the Nova family and in his typical fashion, immediately after the incident he told players and supporters of Nova not to retaliate or do anything to make the situation worse and bring our name to shame. “He is a true club man and he has spent the last two days assuring his family and preventing any of them from even thinking of retaliating and to let the law take its course,” he added. Kapua said that this just shows the true champion he is and his resolve to instill good values for his children and those that look up to him. Nova RFUC is against all forms of violence and abuse in rugby and will support any and all efforts to eradicate this from our game. The actions taken by the CRU to address this matter and the precedent set will not only bode well for the CRU but will also serve in the best interests for rugby in Papua New Guinea.last_img read more

first_imgBATON ROUGE – LSU coach Les Miles compared his team’s run-dominated victory over No. 3 Ole Miss on Oct. 25 to something out of the 1970s.The No. 14 Tigers (7-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) will learn on Saturday if they can stay in that decade for another week against No. 4 Alabama (7-1, 4-1 SEC). Kickoff is at 7 p.m. on CBS in Tiger StadiumLSU, which gained 264 yards on 55 carries for a 4.8-yard average against Ole Miss while completing just eight passes, is fifth in the SEC and 24th nationally in rushing with 225.7 yards a game. Freshman tailback Leonard Fournette is beginning to look like a sensation as he has climbed to ninth in the SEC in rushing with 657 yards on 131 carries. He gained 113 on 23 carries against Ole Miss.Against the Rebels, LSU gained 10 or more yards on seven rushing plays. Over their last three games, the Tigers have gained 10 or more yards on 26 rushing plays as they gained 322 and 238 yards, respectively, in wins over Kentucky and Florida.“Our guys are just getting after it, man,” said senior LSU tailback Kenny Hilliard, who gained 63 yards on 12 carries against Ole Miss. “Our offensive line is creating lanes for our backs to get vertical. Our line just controlled the line of scrimmage against Ole Miss and the two games before that. That’s something they do here at LSU, and we’ll continue to do and have it that way here.”Ole Miss came into the LSU game as the No. 2 rush defense in the SEC with 97.1 yards allowed a game, and Florida is second in the SEC and 22nd nationally against the run with 121 yards allowed a game after its upset of Georgia Saturday.Since gaining just 159 yards on the ground in the 41-7 loss to Auburn on Oct. 4, LSU is averaging 274 yards rushing a game.“Our offensive line has improved since then,” Miles said. “I think we’re really kind of ironing out some of the issues with our team. I think personnel’s improving. I think it’s kind of a broad based improvement.”Alabama will come to Tiger Stadium with the No. 2 rush defense in the nation with just 78.1 yards allowed a game. The Tide held Arkansas, which is fourth in the SEC and 18th nationally in rushing with 248.2 yards a game, to 89 yards on 39 carries in a 14-13 victory on Oct. 11.“We’re going to have to have our best game against Alabama — all the running backs and the offensive line,” Hilliard said.LSU and Arkansas are the only SEC teams averaging close to 50 runs a game.Alabama coach Nick Saban and defensive coordinator Kirby Smart are likely not as concerned with LSU’s passing game. The Tigers are 99th in the nation and 11th in the SEC with 188.6 yards passing a game. Quarterback Anthony Jennings is ninth in the league and 60th in the nation in passing efficiency at 130.8 with 72 completions in 144 attempts for 1,190 yards and eight touchdowns with five interceptions.Alabama’s offense used to mimic LSU and that ’70s style of run football, but Saban’s move to make Lane Kiffin his offensive coordinator last off-season is looking progressive. Alabama is still running well as it is sixth in the league and 28th nationally with 218.6 yards a game, but its passing game is fourth in the SEC and 24th nationally with 290 yards a game. Quarterback Blake Sims is third nationally with a 172.7 passing efficiency grade on 131-of-200 passing for 2,034 yards and 15 touchdowns with three interceptions.Nevertheless, Saban sounded either impressed with LSU’s running game or yearning for that style of football on the SEC teleconference last week … or both.“Well, they might run it 50 times a game. I didn’t know that stat,” he said. “But they’re running it very effectively. Fournette’s a really good back. They’ve got a good offensive line. They’ve controlled the ball. It’s an effective way for them to play with the players that they have, and they’ve done a really good job of it.”LSU’s offense may be simple, if not Cro-Magnon, but it is unique.“I think it’s difficult to defend because it’s not what you play against typically in college football right now,” said Saban, whose defense silenced the modern attack of Texas A&M by a 59-0 count on Oct. 18.“So I think they’re very effective at what they do, and it’s been successful for them,” he said. “Their team has really developed nicely this year, and they are playing their best football right now.”last_img read more
