Bellamy to address cracks in Storm defence

first_imgThe Storm have now conceded more than 20 points three times this season – all in the past four rounds – after allowing teams to score that many points just twice in 2016.It could be the wake-up call the side needs before they enter a difficult Origin period without several of their stars.Bellamy made sure his side learned from their mistakes after the full-time siren as they move ahead for the rest of the season.”Obviously straight after the game, he (Bellamy) was disappointed and he let be known he was disappointed with our defensive effort,” Storm forward Dale Finucane said.”It wasn’t an angry blast, you could hear more of the disappointment as he spoke that it’s uncharacteristic of us. We pride ourselves on our defence and that’s what he was most disappointed with. Saying that, it (an angry blast) could be coming today.”‌With the club imposing a two-week suspension on prop forward Jesse Bromwich, it’s been a week of off-field distractions for the side but you won’t hear Melbourne using that as justification for their error-riddled performances.”The fact we’ve concede those points is disappointing but I’m not 100 per cent sure what to put it down to,” Finucane said. “We’ve had a couple of player movements but that’s no excuse. We always say our mantra is next man up.”Jesse is a massive part of our team and not having him leaves a big gap but we’ve been without Jesse a few times earlier this year with his thumb injury and back. “You can’t put it down solely to one player, it was a team effort and it wasn’t good enough.”The Storm travel to Perth in preparation for a South Sydney Rabbitohs outfit hot off a crushing 28-8 victory over the Wests Tigers on Friday night. While there are a number of players motivated to use this week’s match as another opportunity to stake their Origin claims, potential NSW Blues bolter Finucane is unimpressed with his own form of late.”I’d love to play Origin – it’s something I aspire to but I don’t think I’ve been playing my best recently,” Finucane said.A strong bounce-back win for Melbourne would boost Finucane’s chances of earning an Origin debut as well as ensure the club capitalises on their full complement of players before serving ongoing representative duties.Tohu Harris’s return has come at a vital time for the Storm. “To be able to play all the game on the weekend was really good for him (Harris),” Finucane said. “He looks like he hasn’t missed a beat. We’re grateful to have him back in the team.”There’s a number of guys there we could be without and you want to do as well as you can before your team is a bit disjointed.” Photo: NRL (Melbourne captain Cameron Smith reacts after the Titans’ stunning win over the Storm Grant Trouville).last_img read more

Sammy disappointed by contract snub but committed to Windies

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy has spoken of his disappointment at not being offered a retainer contract by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).The former Test captain was chopped from the 15-man list announced recently by the WICB for the period running from October 1 last year to September 30, 2016.”It’s the first time in the last seven or eight years that I’ve not been given a retainer by the WICB. It’s quite disappointing, but cricket has not been about Darren Sammy, it’s for the West Indian people,” Sammy was quoted as telling a Pakistan cricket website.”I am disappointed that I never received a contract from the WICB, but it’s not my decision. I’ve played the two limited-overs formats for West Indies on a regular basis and performed the role I was asked. It’s very disappointing, particularly as I am the Twenty20 captain, but life goes on.”Sammy has been a key figure in West Indies cricket over the last five years and played a significant role in leading the Caribbean side to the capture of the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka four years ago.He also captained the side in 30 of his 38 Tests before retiring two years ago after being sacked in favour of Denesh Ramdin.Sammy has continued to play the shorter formats, however, and was part of the one-day squad for the Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand last February.The 32-year-old, who now campaigns extensively in the various domestic T20 leagues across the globe, said that he remained committed to representing West Indies in the shorter formats.”I guess they (WICB) are more focused on Test cricket, which I’ve retired from, but I’m fully committed to the one-day and Twenty20 format for West Indies if selected,” Sammy said.”Looking back, when I was growing up, I only dreamed of playing for West Indies, but now I can travel the world and play for so many different franchise teams.”He added: “I’ve had some fantastic times playing for West Indies. I enjoy playing for West Indies and it is still my number-one priority.last_img read more

DaCosta big five look to take charge

first_img ZONE FOUR WESTERN BUREAU: The big five teams in this year’s ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup, including the defending champions St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS), are all in good stead after one game in the inter-zone round of the competition, and will feature today in a schedule of gripping importance. STETHS, the first of the big five, will take the field against Lennon High in a match that could determine the fate of the champions with kick-off set for 3:30 p.m. in Santa Cruz. The top-of-the-table clash is a must-win for Omar Wedderburn and his charges if they are to keep their mission alive of defending the title, while at the same time secure a place in the lucrative FLOW Super Cup competition. Lennon lead Zone Three courtesy of a better goal difference over STETHS, after drubbing Mile Gully High 4-0 in midweek, while the champions masterminded a 1-0 result against Holmwood Technical, who will now turn their attention on Mile Gully High in the zone’s other fixture. STETHS will need a victory to avoid any disappointment. Yet the result is not as straight-forward as it may seem. Lennon, as usual, are an impressive unit this year and showed their title credentials with a stinging win over big five team Clarendon College in the preliminary round to sweep into the inter-zone along with the former champions. The champions are renowned for their spirited displays when it’s needed the most, and all things aside, should feel confident themselves when they take the field in front of their rabidly adoring supporters. Meanwhile, there will be real excitement in Zone One, with another top-of-the-table showdown between Petersfield High and the rampant Cornwall College, another of the title contenders. Both logged victories midweek and will be on the hunt for a win to solidify the claim of best in the zone. Green Island High and Cedric Titus High, on the other hand, are seeking their first points, after losing 1-2 and 0-3 to Petersfield and Cornwall College, respectively. Elsewhere, over in Zone Four, is another high-quality matchup, as Clarendon College look to put the brakes on Spalding. Both are on three points after opening second round wins, while Lacovia High and Manchester High seek to bounce back from losses when they take on each other. Things are interestingly poised in Zone 7, as all four teams are on a single point, but with everything on the line there should be significant change by the time the day is out. There, Glenmuir High meet Vere Technical, while Bog Walk High will tackle Seaforth High. In Zone 8, Little London High will seek to continue to surprise when they play Paul Bogle High. The ‘Londonders’ were impressive in a 3-2 victory over Garvey Maceo High on Thursday. The other game in the zone pits Kemps Hill High, 1-0 losers to Paul Bogle midweek, against the hurting Garvey Maceo. The other two big five teams are also in action. Dinthill Technical will play away to Steer Town High while Rusea’s High host St James High. Today’s matches Cornwall College vs Petersfield Green Island vs Cedric Titus Rusea’s vs St James Spot Valley vs Godfrey Stewart STETHS vs Lennon Mile Gully vs Holmwood Manchester vs Lacovia Spalding vs Clarendon College Ocho Rios vs Fair Prospect Alston vs St Mary Tech Port Antonio vs. Brimmervale Steer Town vs Dinthill Vere Tech vs Glenmuir Bog Walk vs Seaforth Little London vs Paul Bogle Kemps Hill vs Garvey Maceolast_img read more

Nimba Officials Tussle over Scrap Bid

first_imgAmidst waves of Ebola fight across the country, there is a serious tussle among officials of Nimba County over the recent scrap bid that was awarded to the North Star Company.According to Nimba Legislative Caucus’s Chairman, Senator Thomas Grupee, the recent scrap bid awarded to the North Star Company was done single handedly by Superintendent Fong Zuagele and his collaborators.He accused the county leadership of awarding a scrap contract to North Star without informing them, stressing that they had earlier agreed to award the contract to Western Steel (a Ghanaian Firm) that earlier won the first bid and published in December last year.Senator Grupee said if anything was wrong with the first bid and new bid was required, it would have been a concern for both local leadership and the caucus.Instead, Senator Grupee said the superintendent and his lieutenants cancelled the first bid and put out a new bid without informing them.The first bid was opened on 31st December 2013 and the result was announced in June 2014, but due to some wrangling among the officials, many believed there was a conflict of interest as some groups pushed for North Star while the other pushed for Western Steel.When the bid result was announced, some concern scrap buyers association under the umbrella “Concern Scrap Buyers Association of Nimba” rejected the decision by the Nimba County Authority to award the scrap contract to the Ghanaian Scraping Firm, Western Steel, saying the bid over stayed and therefore it was no longer fair.In a letter of complaint addressed to the Public Procurement and Concession Commission dated June 6, 2014 which the copy is with the Daily Observer, the Nimba Scrapers say their objection to the decision by the Nimba Administration to award the contract to Ghanaian Company was because the bidding process was not transparent.In their letter which contained eight counts, they say the bid process was done under the influence/interference of the lawmakers.“Long before the bid was announced, some of our lawmakers had visited Ghana upon the invitation of the Ghanaian Company and at the company expense,” they said in their letter.In April this year, the head of the scrap buyers, Dennis Maneh raised concern explaining that the Public Procurement and Concession Commission/PPCC stipulated days for bidding is 60 and for the scraps, but bidding in Nimba County went beyond the time frame and that the county leadership releases the result immediately.This controversial scrap bid led to the expulsion of Senator Prince Johnson from the Caucus after he accused his colleagues of receiving “Brown envelope” from the Ghanaian Firm to award them the contract.The scrap issue has been in confusion since it was turned to Nimba by Arcelor Mittal over a year ago even before the coming of Fong Zuagele as Superintendent of Nimba.Prior to the bidding process last year, several Nimba officials, including some members of caucus and Superintendent Christiana Dagadu, County Inspector Reginald Mehn secretly visited Ghana; something that brought feeling of unfairness among Nimbaians.During their visit, it was announced by some lawmakers that  Western Steel promised to build a mini steel plant in Nimba if they be awarded the bid so as to create jobs for the locals, but many scrapers believed that the quantity of scraps in Nimba was small for steel plant.The scrutiny of the first bidding process that gave the contract to the Ghanaian Company was presided over by  Nimba Assistant Superintendent for Development, Teeko Yorlay, but he continues to remain mute whenever he is contacted by media.He justifies that he is not clothed with the authority to speak, claiming that he has already done his it left with Superintendent.With this new tussle; Teeko Yorlay has been battling in defense of the so-called new bid, which is said to have been awarded to North Star.He has been arguing that the contract was awarded to North Star, because they agreed to purchase a ton of scrap for US $ 78.00, give US$ 1.6 million and construct two schools worth over US$ 200, 000 while Western Steel bided to buy the scrap for US$ 77.00 a ton and build a mini plant.He argued that the highest bid won the bid and therefore they decided to give the contract to North Star (a Liberian/Indian Firm) because what they offered was greater than Western steel.Critics alleged Teeko Yorlay to have received a “Brown envelope” along with a Toyota Jeep from North Star so as to award them the contract, something yet to be verified.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Roma boss looking to pull off ‘incredible’ win over Man City

first_imgRoma coach Rudi Garcia believes their Champions League clash with Man City is just like a cup final and claims a win over the Premier League side would be ‘incredible’.The two sides meet at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday, a match you can hear live on talkSPORT, with their hopes of qualifying for the next phase of the competition on the line.And Garcia believes victory would be a shock considering, according to UEFA’s seedings, they were the fourth best team in their group.“We need to make the most of every moment [against Manchester City],” he said. “We’re looking to pull it off, a win would be incredible.“We know that City are a good side and it will be very tough tomorrow but I’m sure we can do it.“Every match is important but tomorrow’s is special because it’s like a cup final.“We should have been out of the running by this stage because we were in the fourth (seedings) pot and yet we’re still in the hunt.“The fact that we are still in the race means that we have quality. [You have to give] credit to us that we still have the chance to play this cup final in front of our fans at a passionate Olimpico.” 1 Roma boss Rudi Garcia last_img read more

From the ashes of Vichai tragedy, Leicester set for emotional return to action

first_imgThe tragedy rocked the football world, with Leicester’s stunned players joining mourners who turned the King Power into a shrine with flowers and tributes to the charismatic Vichai.With his vast investment and boundless enthusiasm, Vichai was the inspiration for Leicester’s incredible Premier League title triumph as 5,000-1 outsiders in 2016.While results on the pitch pale in comparison to the trauma of Vichai’s death, Claude Puel’s side will play this weekend for the first time since the crash.Tuesday’s League Cup home game against Southampton came too soon for Leicester, who postponed the tie to allow more time for the city to come to terms with the accident.But they have agreed to play the Premier League fixture in south Wales in a bid to start the healing process.A minute’s silence will be observed before kick-off at the Cardiff City Stadium and players will wear black armbands in Vichai’s honour.“Playing football has not been on our minds this last week but for this weekend and all matches after we will play to honour and remember a man who did so much for our club,” Puel said.“The result is not important, but our desire to give our best to honour our chairman, that is the most important thing.”As the shrine to Vichai grew bigger by the day, thousands of fans were joined throughout the week by former boss Claudio Ranieri, who led Leicester to their Premier League crown, as well as members of Vichai’s family and the club’s players.Leicester stars Kasper Schmeichel and Jamie Vardy were visibly upset when Vichai’s devastated son Aiyawatt, the Leicester vice-chairman, made his way round the team to shake hands and receive hugs of condolence.Reflecting the sense of shock around a city that benefitted from Vichai’s charitable donations as well as his commitment to the football team, Cliff Ginnetta, chairman of Leicester Supporters’ Club, said: “This has shaken everyone to the core. He was the boss, he was part of the fabric.“You saw him in the stands, always with his scarf on, and it’s amazing the difference he made and how he was so respected by the fans.”Puel had worked with Vichai for a season and a half, giving him plenty of time to understand how the Thai businessman had become part of the fabric of the club.– ‘He truly was loved’ –“Vichai made Leicester City into what it is. He made it a family and made a dream. He invested in the club, the city and in the people,” he said.“He truly was loved by everyone. All the players are devastated. It’s a difficult moment.“To see all of the messages and the flowers and shirts outside the stadium this week show how many lives he touched.”Leicester’s fairytale reign as English champions is a glorious memory that will stand forever as a tribute to Vichai’s eight years as owner.But his death leaves Leicester’s future shrouded in uncertainty as fans wait to discover who will take the reins in the boardroom.Aiyawatt spoke emotionally about continuing his father’s legacy and, if he does take over, he will need the kind of sensitive touch that Vichai displayed to guide Leicester through such a turbulent period.“I’m extremely proud to have such an extraordinary father. From him, I have received a very big mission and legacy to pass on and I intend to do just that,” Aiyawatt said.“He loved his family. He made Leicester City into a family. And nothing would make him prouder than to see how the Leicester City family that he built is supporting each other through a time of such sadness.“Today, he has left me with a legacy to continue and I will do everything I can to carry on his big vision and dreams.”For now, Leicester will focus on finding solace on the pitch.Puel’s team, currently 12th in the Premier League, are without a victory in their last three games.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tributes to Vichai have turned Leicester’s King Power Stadium into a shrine © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 1 – United in sorrow following the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, grief-stricken Leicester will make an emotional return to action at Cardiff on Saturday.Thai billionaire Vichai was among five people killed when his helicopter crashed outside Leicester’s King Power Stadium following last Saturday’s match against West Ham.last_img read more
