Gutsy Manly scrape past Roosters

first_imgThe win was Manly’s second on the trot, but it could come at a cost with Jamie Buhrer leaving the field in the first-half with a suspected broken thumb while star halfback Daly Cherry-Evans came off with an ankle sprain late in the game.Saturday night’s loss was the fourth in a row to start the year for the Roosters, but coach Trent Robinson would have to be pleased with the improved effort.Shaun Kenny-Dowall had a night to remember, capping off his 200th game in the NRL with two tries, 192 metres and two line breaks. The early signs weren’t great for the Roosters as they fell behind inside the first five minutes. A Latrell Mitchell error gifted the Sea Eagles tremendous field position, and courtesy of a Feleti Mateo speculative floater and some terrific hands from Jorge Taufua, Manly crossed out wide for an early 6-0 lead. After conceding 103 points in their opening three games, the famed ‘Bondi Wall’ was seemingly back and ensured that would be the last time their line was breached in the opening half, with Manly’s only other points coming via a penalty goal in the 25th minute.After falling behind, the Roosters swiftly lifted their intensity and were rewarded in the 11th minute with the milestone man Shaun Kenny-Dowall finishing off some classy work from Blake Ferguson to score his 113th try for the Tricolours. The hosts then levelled the game four minutes later via the boot of Sio Siua Taukeiaho, before Lyon’s penalty goal allowed Manly to retake the lead. Having crossed earlier in the game, Kenny-Dowall turned a solid milestone game into one he’ll never forget. After watching Bulldogs centre Josh Morris celebrate his 200th game with a first-half double on Friday, the Roosters winger followed suit, leaping high to snatch a Jackson Hastings kick to cross in the corner.It was just rewards for the Roosters, who had only moments earlier had a chaotic try to Sio Siua Taukeiaho disallowed after he lost possession in the process of scoring.  The second half couldn’t have started any differently for both sides, with Taufua spilling a Hastings kick on almost the same blade of grass as Mitchell’s error to start the game. A few plays later Hastings linked up with Ferguson, who dummied to Kenny-Dowall, fended away from Brown and scored to increase the hosts’ lead. It looked like the home side would run away with it after a brutal set of six saw them march 70 metres down field, but a poor kick from skipper Jake Friend killed any hopes of more points.The Roosters would rue that missed opportunity, as Manly piled on 14 points in six minutes to take back the lead. The first came with Daly Cherry-Evans finding Dylan Walker out the back before the Manly No.6 put on the afterburners to race 20 metres and score his second try of the season. A penalty goal to Lyon levelled the scores with 23 minutes to play, before the Manly skipper combined with Tom Trbojevic to score a breathtaking try down the right touchline to reclaim the lead. Suddenly down by six, the Roosters needed a spark and got one through their 200-game-man. Having put his side in good field position with a strong run, Kenny-Dowall watched on as his teammates threw the ball around hot-potato style, before Daniel Tupou toed through a stray Latrell Mitchell offload to score.Hastings had a chance to level the scores, but couldn’t slot what was a very difficult sideline conversion. With six minutes remaining it looked as if the Roosters had stolen their first win of the season with an apparent try to Mitchell, but the Bunker intervened, ruling Mitchell Aubusson offside in the build-up.The Roosters had a couple of late chances, but couldn’t produce the special play required to get the win.Sea Eagles 22 (Jorge Taufua, Dylan Walker, Jamie Lyon tries; Jamie Lyon 5 goals) defeatedRoosters 20 (Shaun Kenny-Dowall 2, Blake Ferguson, Daniel Tupou tries; Sio Siua Taukeiaho, Jackson Hastings 1 goals) at Allianz Stadium. Half-time: 10-8 Roosters. Penalties: 9-4 Roosters. Crowd: 12,271. Injuries: Jamie Buhrer (broken hand) and Daly Cherry-Evans (foot).last_img read more

Turnover-prone Fajardo takes blame for SMB’s Game 1 loss

first_imgMOST READ The Hotshots made good use of all those San Miguel errors scoring 20 points off turnovers. Fajardo said they never underestimated the Hotshots, who are on their first championship series since completing the Grand Slam in 2014, despite having reached the Philippine Cup finals four times in a row and winning three straight. “No, we didn’t underestimate them,” said Fajardo. “It’s just that I had so many turnovers and Magnolia got momentum from that.” ADVERTISEMENT Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

Finishing a term

first_imgSylmar Levine’s logic Re “Levine wants to put teeth in pet population control” (March 2): The logic proposed by Assemblyman Lloyd Levine is typical of Democrats. Mandatory spaying or neutering of every dog and cat does not prevent 500,000 dogs and cats from being euthanized. It prevents them from being born. His same logic can be used by Planned Parenthood. We’re not killing unborn babies; we’re preventing people from dying in President George W. Bush’s unjust war in Iraq. The bottom line is always the same. Tax the breeders, tax the pet owner, tax, tax, tax. – Steve Duhm Woodland Hills Good move Re “Interim LAFD chief starts changing management; No. 2 administrator Fox is effectively demoted” (Feb. 28): Los Angeles Fire Department Deputy Chief Andy Fox has said that chief officers who are responsible for maintaining the standards and setting the example are to be held accountable commensurate with their position. His documented failures in this regard, coupled with numerous costly lawsuits, are why LAFD members support Fox’s “reassignment” (demotion) now. – Chris and Eric Mattson LAFD, retired Fallbrook Libby trial Re “`Scooter’ Libby guilty on 4 counts” (March 7): How political can it get? To condemn I. Lewis Libby, build a questionable case and send him to jail is a big lie. The drug and sex lords are not in jail and are breaking the laws. The human slave traffickers are not in jail and should be. There is no excuse for this. Shame. – Theodora Howell West Hills The city’s fault Your editorial “In name only” (March 7) is deceptive in its characterization of why this year’s San Fernando Valley Fair was moved to Santa Clarita. The city of L.A. agreed the event could be held in Woodley Park. The squabbling erupted when the L.A. Department of Recreation and Parks caved to political pressure to pull the permits. Who is at fault? The city of L.A.! They yanked the rug out from under the event with just a few weeks before the start-up date. – Sean McCarthy West Hills Look to ourselves Re “Dog and cat `business”‘ (Your Opinions, March 7): Our planet is not being destroyed by dog and cat poop. Strays are not born. They’re a direct result of our ignorance and negligence, the way we deal with them, our failure. We need only to look to ourselves and the inertia that envelopes us into allowing others – in Washington, state and local governments – to make all decisions. I hope Al Gore’s message will unite and activate us to do as much as possible to ensure a healthy and safe future for all of God’s gifts. Perhaps the dogs soiling Theresa Gassler’s grass are strays, alone, desperate and hungry. In mine, it’s the human at the end of the leash who fails to scoop. – Grace Pedraza Valley Village Hahn on gangs The recent arrest of Mario Corona, a gang-intervention administrator in the Valley, raises some valid concerns about hiring former gang members to help fight our war on gangs. This is exactly why we must invest more money in gang-prevention programs to keep our kids from joining gangs in the first place. To effectively fight gangs, we must invest in early prevention and after-school programs. Programs like the Gang Alternatives Program work with fourth-grade students to give them the tools they need to stay out of gangs. Think about what an impact we could make if GAP was in every school in Los Angeles. If we could grow up an entire generation of kids who say no to joining gangs, we could eliminate the need for any intervention workers in the future. Let’s invest in fighting gangs on the front end – before kids ever join gangs. We know that for every $200 we spend on a child for early prevention programs, we save up to $1,800 in the long run. Let’s be smarter about how we are fighting the war on gangs. – Janice Hahn Councilwoman City of Los Angeles The returning injured If the Bible is correct and the wages of sin is death, then I suggest a raise for all those who have so sinfully neglected to care for the returning injured of Bush’s illegal, immoral war. – Eddie Johnson Panorama City No deceit planned Re “Union backtracks on Election Day pay” (March 3): I did not suggest that teachers mislead the Los Angeles Unified School District into believing that volunteers for the Jon Lauritzen campaign were participating in professional development, when in fact the teachers were doing political work. My colleague, who was attending a campaign event sponsored by United Teachers Los Angeles, did not understand my directions to call for a sub. My only mistake was in telling teachers which button on a telephone to push. Whether they push button 3 or button 6, UTLA will pay for the substitute hired. No one can be released for professional development without an administrator’s approval. UTLA has no reason to “backtrack,” as there was no deceitful behavior planned. – Ed Kaz Reseda High School Public transit cuts Re “Valley commuters score” (March 1): So much recent political attention has focused on which roads and highways will be expanded that public transit needs are at risk of being overlooked. Los Angeles subway trips increased 12 percent and light-rail trips increased 7 percent from 2005 to 2006. Despite public transit’s success, the governor’s budget proposes cutting $1.1 billion from public transit. Huge cuts would result in fewer services and more cars on the road, and that means more traffic congestion and pollution. Mayor Villaraigosa must demand that the Legislature reject the proposed cuts and, instead, invest in convenient, quality public transit. – Emily Rusch CALPIRG Transportation Advocate San Francisco The warming trend Re “Not what they seem” (Your Opinions, March 1): Eric Obermeit hurls an array of insults at anyone who would dare to disagree with the trendy global-warming hysteria. The truth, Obermeit, is that no one knows the absolute truth about this matter, and theories abound on both sides of the aisle. Perhaps you should read a few opposing arguments as well, so any future debates on this issue might be focused more on intellect and less on emotion. – Sharon Hess Sherman Oaks Just a light trim A two-year term limit for the president would eliminate a lot of today’s war problems. – Jack Botwin Sylmar160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Re “Triumphant Alarcón eager to begin term” (March 8): I see the people have decided to give Richard Alarcón another chance to complete a term for the position he was elected to (again). Can we count on him to stick around this time for the full term? Or will he abandon us as he did before in the other jobs that he was elected to and didn’t complete? Is the reason he keeps changing jobs because he isn’t qualified or because, once there, he can’t handle the position? He is a prime example of why we have to stop the political musical chairs. In the private sector, you wouldn’t have a job for long – starting something and then quitting to move on to something else on a constant basis. – Gary E. Taylor last_img

Juventus extend Serie A streak, Roma back winning

I don’t have a line-up in my head right now, as on Friday in training we’ll see everyone together and decide.”Lazio are third, a further three points adrift, after their fourth win on the trot 2-1 against Udinese ahead of this weekend’s Roman derby against Roma.Roma, meanwhile, eased the pressure on under-fire coach Eusebio Di Francesco achieving their first three points since their season-opener against Torino over a month ago.“This is a new beginning for us, a new season has started,” said Di Francesco.In Turin, Dybala got a rare start up front alongside superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and lashed home his first goal of the season after 12 minutes in the Allianz Stadium.The Argentine had initially teed up Matuidi but Lukasz Skorupski cleared the Frenchman’s effort before Dybala acrobatically turned the ball in himself.Five minutes later World Cup winner Matuidi got his chance to add a second following a Ronaldo cross, with the Portuguese forward having a shot cleared off the near post by Skorupski.Cristiano Ronaldo drew a blank in Turin after losing out in the FIFA best player award this week. © AFP / MARCO BERTORELLORonaldo — who missed out on the FIFA’s best player of the year award this week — fired just wide five minutes from the whistle when he picked up Dybala’s through ball.In was the first of three games in Turin within the space of a week for Juventus, who after Napoli at the weekend, host Swiss club Young Boys in the Champions League next week, after winning their opener against Valencia.Carlo Ancelotti rotated his squad completely with nine changes ahead of the weekend game in Turin and hosting Liverpool in the Champions League.And it paid off with a third straight league win with Lorenzo Insigne opening after four minutes in Naples with a second-half brace from Polish forward Arkadiusz Milik keeping the pressure on Juventus.“We were very fresh because I changed them all, and the initial rhythm determined the final result,” said Ancelotti.– ‘Starting point’ –Lazio, meanwhile, continued their promising start with Francesco Acerbi and Joaquin Correa scoring in the space of five minutes just after the hour mark.Bram Nuytinck pulled one back in Udine with an overhead kick ten minutes from time.Simone Inzaghi’s side, who lost their opening two games to Juventus and Napoli, can head confidently into the Roman derby against Roma.In the Stadio Olimpico, Turkish winger Cengiz Under set the tone after just two minutes for Roma with a sensational run from his own half to lash into the goal from a distance.Roma win to ease the pressure on coach Eusebio Di Francesco. © AFP / Filippo MONTEFORTEJavier Pastore’s back heel flick gave Di Francesco’s side a second just before the half hour mark with Under then setting up Stephan El Shaarawy for the third minutes later.Luca Pellegrini came off the bench for his Serie A debut, to set up Aleksandar Kolarov for the fourth three minutes from time.Roma are tenth with eight points, with Frosinone second from bottom having conceded 16 goals this season.“This is a starting point. It was important to rediscover our confidence and prepare well,” said the Roma coach whose side host Czech club Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League next week, having lost their opener to holders Real Madrid.Inter Milan moved towards the top of the table with a 2-1 win over Fiorentina on Tuesday, with AC Milan playing at Empoli on Thursday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
