Chill-out chat with Alex Cuthbert

first_imgAC: People lying. When a guy was talking to my mate in a bar he said that he was best mates with Alex Cuthbert. I didn’t even know the guy and my mate was cracking up inside. When he told me we had a right laugh.RW: What’s the silliest thing you’ve bought?AC: A pair of £40 boxers. They were Alexander McQueen and I’ve only worn them once. I then washed them with a red shirt and they went pink!RW: Who would be your three dream dinner-party guests?AC: Smithy – James Corden, because he’d be funny. Then Fearne Cotton and Keith Lemon – we could both take the piss out of Fearne!RW: Who’d play you in a film of your life?AC: Who’s the guy from Dear John? Channing Tatum. He’s a good-looking guy. Scrap that, Ashton Kutcher – he’s a cool guy.RW: Just to clarify, you’ve seen Dear John?AC: Yes, there’s nothing wrong with it – it’s quite good. I watched it with a woman.RW: What’s your guilty pleasure?AC: Rom-coms! That’s probably more of a date thing – a third or fourth date. A first date would be a meal or a drink.RW: Where would you take someone for dinner – Nando’s?!AC: I’d never take a woman to Nando’s!RW: What’s your favourite expression?AC: Ain’t nothin’ but a peanut – Ronnie Coleman (bodybuilder).RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?AC: To live forever.This article appeared in the September 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK.

(Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) The Wales wing talks racing, rom-coms and Rosie with Sarah MockfordRUGBY WORLD: What are the happiest and saddest moments of your life to date?ALEX CUTHBERT: The happiest was the night out after the Grand Slam – it was a great night in Cardiff. The saddest is probably when my nan passed away – it was just after I’d been called up for Wales Sevens.RW: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt in life?AC: Don’t underestimate anything; never take anything for granted.RW: Do you have any nicknames?AC: Horse. And Marv, from Home Alone. I used to have long hair.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?AC: I’d like to be a professional gambler – on the horses or a poker player. I follow racing quite a lot and might go to Cheltenham or Ascot. It’s a good day out with the boys. RW: How would you like to be remembered?AC: Not as a showjumper! For having a good scoring record – a good playing-scoring ratio like Shane Williams would be good.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?AC: The funniest thing was when I was back at college. One of the boys had his shorts pulled down but he still kept running with the ball because he was close to the line. His arse was on show and he was trying to run, but he struggled. In one game I played for the Blues, someone shouted ‘Run, Horse, Run’. That was quite funny – and I did score!RW: Who are the jokers in the squad?AC: With Wales it’s Liam Williams. He’s a hell of a character. He gives everyone gyp and is good to have around the camp. At the Blues, Dan Fish targets everyone, even the older boys.RW: Any practical jokes you can share?AC: On one of the sevens trips to New Zealand, one of the boys met a girl, got a number and started texting her. However, it was actually one of the other boy’s numbers – the girl was in on it – and when he arranged to meet up with her we were all there waiting for him!RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?AC: Model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.RW: Do you think you could take on her other half, Jason Statham?AC: I don’t know, he’s quite hard!RW: Do you have any bugbears?

Would a global rugby season endanger the Heineken Cup?

first_img Keen for a new challenge: Toulon are happy for a global club challenge match, would they want a new competition?By Alan DymockWITH PREMIERSHIP Rugby coming out in support of the International Rugby Players Association’s proposal for an integrated global rugby season, there could be a world of possibilities in front of those looking to find an alternative to the Heineken Cup.If the proposal was taken up it would mean that in season 2015/16 the Northern Hemisphere clubs would start playing in October and finish in June. This, in turn, would mean that by the time the summer internationals roll around, SANZAR’s Super Rugby season would be over and there would be a clear run to play without the fear of disrupting the southern franchises’ play-off hopes.Heading south: Would games with South African sides work?So far ,so rosy, it would seem. Big hitter Richie McCaw has come out in support, too, calling the potential move a “game-changer” for the sport, while Jonny Sexton appears to speak for several players at once by saying: “We see this initiative as beneficial for the global game.”However, with Premiership Rugby backing the plans it is worth noting that while they are still no closer to agreeing upon a more favourable format with the ERC shareholders from Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales for the future of the Heineken Cup, this move ensures more of an overlapping with Super Rugby and the Aviva Premiership and Top 14.If a “world challenge” format was agreed upon between English, French and possibly South African clubs, when would prospective matches be played?It has been mooted in the past that Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal would like his Heineken-winning side to play a League-style club challenge match with the eventual winner of Super Rugby, and certainly a one-off game would be possible with a new schedule for competitions from 2015 onwards. Yet, South Africa still appears to be the only logical explanation for a new international club competition for the wantaway factions at Premiership Rugby and the Top 14 because of the favourable time difference. Australia and New Zealand would likely be too far away. Anyone responsible for taking minutes at meetings may want to get their rest in now; there is a lot of negotiating and discussing to be done on two huge issues in the near future.You can have your say by voting in our poll on the Rugbyworld.com homepage: Should there be a global rugby season? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON, ENGLAND – MAY 09: Mark McCafferty, the chief executive of Premiership Rugby talks to the audience during the Aviva Premiership Awards held at the Hilton Park Lane on May 9, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images for Aviva) So when Premiership Rugby chief Mark McCafferty says: “We feel there should be some urgent discussions. This is a unique opportunity to get some alignment between the north and the south,” the potential of change is interesting.Hail to the Chief: PRL chief executive, Mark McCaffertyIn 2010, Mcafferty said of a club challenge match: “Our clubs, as well as those in Europe and the southern hemisphere, have had approaches from Monaco, Abu Dhabi and, most recently, from South Africa. If the stakeholders within rugby don’t create this, somebody else will and we’ll find an outsider coming in.”Back there were issues with settling on a timeframe. “The sticking points at the moment are the dates of the new domestic competitions in the southern hemisphere, but we’re still working on it,” McCafferty says. With interest coming in for realigning competitions, perhaps the interested parties outside of governing bodies will be sitting up and taking notice.Negotiations are, in theory, ongoing within ERC. It suits the RaboDirect Pro12 stakeholders for talks to continue without resolution, as the current rights of Pro12 clubs to compete as they currently are is protected. However, if the case for a more global season gathers pace there will be more pressure to get something in place.Sort out the Heineken Cup formatting and there could only be a one-off challenge match in prospect. Fail to come to compromise with all the ERC stakeholders and the calls for Premiership Rugby to court those in the south could increase, providing that everyone supports global schedule changes.last_img read more

Each year, it helps hundreds of teenagers outside of mainstream education to develop the skills they need to get into sustained employment and training. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Entries to all events include a £5 donation to Dallaglio Rugbyworks and funds raised will enable more young people to build a brighter future.Dallaglio said: “Track Fest is going to be an incredible event, helping to raise money and awareness for Dallaglio RugbyWorks. UK Cycling Events are generously donating a portion of the ticket price to this amazing charity working with some of the UK’s hardest to reach teenagers to ensure that they can achieve stable, secure and happy futures in education, employment or training.“This is a cause that is extremely close to my heart and I am thankful to everyone who has booked their place. Your donation is already helping to make a difference to the lives of young people all across the UK.”UK Cycling Events Manager Natalie Hicks said: “We’re thrilled to work with Dallaglio RugbyWorks, who share our belief in creating opportunities to be active and engaged in something you love doing, which can have a profound impact on a person’s life. We love helping people to enjoy cycling, and we hope that young ones will be inspired at this event.“We’ve worked closely with our partners to create a day not only for the serious rider who wants to clock up some miles but those looking for family fun. Riders can still expect to enjoy the same quality of interesting and safe routes that feature across all our sportives, with the added perks of being able to bring the family to ride traffic-free on the Goodwood circuit.”last_img read more

first_img“It was decided on medical advice that the quarter-final could not go ahead safely in the circumstances and as a consequence, Castres have to forfeit the match and Leicester will qualify for the Challenge Cup semi-finals.”Leicester have struggled for form since rugby’s restart but did achieve a confidence-boosting win over Midlands rivals Northampton in their last fixture.There is an extra carrot for the Tigers in the Challenge Cup this year as the winners will qualify for next season’s Champions Cup if they haven’t finished in the top eight of their league.With Leicester currently 11th in the Gallagher Premiership and only able to climb to ninth with two matches remaining, winning the Challenge Cup is their only route into Europe’s elite event in 2020-21.Related: New European Champions Cup format for 2020-21Their semi-final will take place next Saturday, 26 September (kick-off 8pm UK & Ireland time).

Joe Schmidt takes on new role with World Rugby

first_imgThe former Ireland boss is their director of rugby and high performance Joe Schmidt takes on new role with World RugbyFormer Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has taken on a new role with World Rugby, as the governing body’s director of rugby and high performance.The role allows New Zealander Schmidt to continue to be based in Dublin – where World Rugby’s headquarters are. His responsibilities will include looking at player welfare, training and education. Schmidt will take up the new role in November.Through World Rugby’s official channels, Schmidt said of his appointment: “I’m passionate about the game and keen that people continue to enjoy being involved in it, from the young to the young at heart.Related: Ireland Six Nations squad 2020 – squad update Boss: Joe Schmidt during his tenure as head coach of Ireland (Getty Images) “The professional game is the showpiece for our sport, and involving key stakeholders in our discussions about how the game is played and how players are managed will be beneficial.“It has been a challenging year thus far and likely to remain difficult for some time, but it has been great to see the resumption of numerous competitions, with plenty of entertaining and exciting matches.”In April, Schmidt was part of an expert working group that World Rugby assembled to focus on the breakdown. Also on the panel was referee Wayne Barnes, All Blacks boss Ian Foster, collision specialist Richie Gray and others. That group and World Rugby issued a ‘law application guideline’ for referees, encouraging officials to apply the existing breakdown laws stringently.Schmidt’s last match in charge of the Irish national team was the 46-14 Rugby World Cup quarter-final loss to the All Blacks in Tokyo, Japan, in October 2019.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Can’t get to the shops?

Ireland finish third in Autumn Nations Cup

A 31-16 scoreline sees Ireland triumph in Dublin A dominant second-half display saw Ireland finish third in the Autumn Nations Cup after a 31-16 win over Scotland.There were three tries for the hosts, with Keith Earls scoring on either side of the half for Ireland and Cian Healy also helping himself to a close-range five-pointer. Scotland got one of their own, through an opportunist Duhan van der Merwe, but their ill-discipline was a real issue.Scotland gave away 13 penalties and there was a yellow card for Duncan Taylor on 31 minutes as he was adjudged to deliberately knock on while trying to shut the door on Bundee Aki who attempted to capitalise on a big Irish overlap.Ireland got a stranglehold on the game in the second, based on forwards power and making the most of their advantages.

I Jesudasan of the Church of South India (CSI) passed way in Trivandrum on June 16 at the age of 88.A dynamic leader, Bishop Jesudasan was the first person in Kerala to ordain women. Also an academician, he served as principal of the Kerala United Theological Seminary. He is to be credited with the formation of many ministers and ministries. He will also be remembered for his compassion work in various capacities through care-giving ministries both local and international. He served as deputy moderator of CSI for two years (1980-1982), and as moderator for six years (1982-1987), during which time he strived and succeeded in bringing about several changes that contributed to the integrity of the church at all levels. Notable among his many contributions at the international level were his involvement with the Central Committee of World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC).He leaves behind two sons and their families. We express our heart-felt condolence and pray that God would comfort the family with His Peace. We thank God for the life and leadership of Bishop Jesudasan. It is a great loss to, not only the CSI, but to other ministries who found themselves embraced and encouraged by his vision and work. May we be inspired to continue our ministry tasks with the faithful dedication and passion so beautifully exemplified in the life of Bishop Jesudasan.The funeral was held June 18 at 10 a.m. in the LMS Compound, Trivandrum.

‘God met us at Anglicans Ablaze’ conference, says South African…

first_img Featured Jobs & Calls The Rev. Trevor Pearce talks to delegates at the conference. Photo: Bellah Zulu/ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] An Anglican priest from South Africa has described the Anglicans Ablaze conference as “well worth doing and exceeding our expectations” adding “God came and met us and did more than anything we could have hoped for.”In an interview with ACNS, the Rev. Trevor Pearce, conference coordinator and director of Growing the Church (GtC), said: “We thank God for bringing us together in one conference and for the unity despite our different cultures, languages and worship styles.”The Anglicans Ablaze conference brought together about 2,000 delegates from 18 countries and 43 dioceses from Southern Africa and other parts of the world, for five days of prayer and sharing from July 2-5.A special Listening Team headed by Bishop of Swaziland Ellinah Wamukoya had the major task of praying, listening and sharing what God was saying throughout the whole conference.On the final day of the conference, Wamukoya said that God had revealed to them the “need to go out to the fringes to share the Gospel” including the need for “the church and Anglican leaders ourselves to be transformed.”Young people showed up in large numbers and played a major role throughout the whole conference. They were challenged by various speakers on the need to rise up and help bring about transformation in the church and society.A young Anglican and board member of Growing the Church (GtC) Khozi Khoza said, “God is raising up an army with Joshua’s anointing. If God is going to bring about transformation in our society, it will be through the church because it’s God’s solution to the systematic problems plaguing our nation.”Her brief but spirited preaching was well received by conference delegates. Some participants said her sermon was confirmation that young Anglicans are capable of contributing significantly to the growth of the church.New Zealand Church Mission Society leader Steve Maina also shared his final thoughts and emphasized the need to evangelize. “We need to move from the mountain top and go practice in the valley what God has been saying to us,” he said. “We cannot just go back home and continue doing things the way we used to.”He added: “It’s time to…go into circulation and share what we have. We’re too stuck in our structures but the love of God demands an urgent response from us.”At the end of the conference, a number of delegates, particularly young people, committed their lives to Christ after an invitation to do so. They were welcomed and advised on how they can grow in their Christian life.The conference was hosted by the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA), one of the largest and most diverse provinces on the continent, covering seven countries with many different languages, cultures and race groups.

Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Curate Diocese of Nebraska Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA [Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast] The Rev. James Russell Kendrick, rector of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Birmingham, Alabama, was elected as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast on Feb. 21, pending the required consents from a majority of bishops with jurisdiction and standing committees of The Episcopal Church.Kendrick, 54, was elected during the diocese’s 44th annual convention held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Mobile, Alabama. He was elected on the third ballot out of a field of three nominees. He received 97 votes of 163 cast in the lay order and 32 of 53 cast in the clergy order. An election on that ballot required 82 in the lay order and 27 in the clergy order.Kendrick has served as rector of St. Stephen’s since 2007. In 1984, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in architecture and marketing from Auburn University in Alabama; and in 1995, he received a Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria. Russell is married to Robin. They have two children, Aaron and Hannah.“I am keenly aware of and deeply humbled by the trust and hope that this election carries. Robin and I look forward to returning to the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast and serving our Lord with the people that once formed us and sent us forth into the larger church. I take this election to be a call for collaboration, cooperation and creativity as we seek to be apostles for Jesus in God’s world,” said Kendrick following the election.Under the canons (III.11.4) of The Episcopal Church, a majority of bishops exercising jurisdiction and diocesan standing committees must consent to Kendrick’s ordination as bishop within 120 days of receiving notice of the election.The other nominees were:The Very Rev. Edward Francis O’Connor, dean, Cathedral Parish of St. Andrew, Jackson, Mississippi; andThe Rev. Doctor William Charles Treadwell III, rector, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Waco, Texas.Pending the required consents, the bishop-elect will be ordained and consecrated on July 25 at Christ Church Cathedral in Mobile, Alabama. The bishop-elect will succeed the Rt. Rev. Philip Menzie Duncan II, who is the third bishop of the diocese.The Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast includes southern Alabama and the panhandle of Florida, 62 churches, and approximately 20,000 members.
