Wales: The fly-half factory

first_imgMatthew Morgan is yet to turn 22, but it seems he has been the next big thing in Welsh rugby for half a decade already. Explosive acceleration and a nose for the line definitely single him out as a phenomenal talent – a stunning 90-metre try in Ospreys’ thrashing of Edinburgh and the lacerating break that led to Justin Tipuric’s score against the Dragons just two examples of his electric tendencies.Unfortunately, having fallen out of favour at the Liberty Stadium, a full international is a while off. With Patchell now out, it would fantastic to see the Blues give him a shop window with some sort of loan agreement. A diminutive magician, Morgan simply cannot be allowed to stagnate. <> at Liberty Stadium on December 13, 2013 in Swansea, Wales. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Promising but crocked: Rhys Patchell has shown up well, but injury has halted his progress this seasonBy Charlie MorganThere was a sense of profound disappointment on Monday as news broke that Rhys Patchell faces a four-month lay-off to correct knee and shoulder problems. The precocious Cardiff Blue had been brilliant in the early part of this season, showcasing a vast array of attributes – steadfast confidence, a siege gun right boot and more than enough defensive presence to look after himself in crowded midfields.But while the red-headed 20 year-old gave Warren Gatland a robust nudge and could well have added to the two Test caps he won in Japan over this coming Six Nations, Wales are not short of a fly-half or two. In fact, the fabled factory of number tens is in fine fettle. It’s actually a decent reason to forget the embarrassing WRU-regional rugby arguments, too. Here are a few candidates to take over this spring.Dead-eye DanNot just for kicks: Dan Biggar with WalesHaving started the final autumn international against Australia, Dan Biggar is the man in possession. Despite enduring a rather chastening time that afternoon opposite red-hot Quade Cooper (picking up a yellow card in the process), he is obviously trusted by Gatland – and with good reason.Biggar’s goalkicking this term has been superb. A speculator from 55 metres on Boxing Day halted a run of 35 consecutive successes from the tee, while his distribution is also looking crisp. Assured displays over the imminent Heineken Cup fortnight will probably see him face Italy on February 1.Resurgent ScarletThe past 18 months can’t have been easy for Rhys Priestland, but it seems he has managed to emerge from a horrible period dogged by on-field indecision, self-doubt and awful injuries. That said, the 26 year-old remains an enigma.Two lively Scarlet performances in the festive derby clashes with the Ospreys demonstrated how incisive and dangerous his running can be. But when he wavers off wavelength, it’s hard to forget – see an odd grubber to end Wales’ attempt to overhaul Australia.The prodigal sonGatland’s decision to hand James Hook an audition against Tonga in November represented something of an olive branch. Sadly, the Perpignan pivot could not quite grasp the gilt-edged chance and overplayed his considerably skillful hand in a terribly turgid game.Now 28, you feel Hook is at something of a crossroads – either Gatland entrusts his experience with a pivotal role in the lead-up to 2015, or other avenues are pursued. Under the radarAs canny as coaches come, Lyn Jones is one to choose his lieutenants wisely. With that in mind, Jason Tovey’s unfussy prominence during the Dragons’ odds-defying Pro12 to date has been a big endorsement. Still 24, he is a graceful game-manager who punches well above his 85-kilogram frame in defence – in fact, his low chop-tackling allows back-rowers to swarm rucks and plunder turnovers.Tovey was also cheeky enough to admit how much pleasure he took from proving a point with a 17-point haul to overturn former employers Cardiff Blues ten days ago. There’s a lot to like about that.Dropping in and out: Sam Davies has played at full-backExcellent apprenticeAnd so to the left-field options. Becoming the second Welshman to win the IRB Young Player of the Year award – behind a certain Gavin Henson in 2001 – Sam Davies has earned himself a burgeoning reputation. Rather than stall, he thankfully seems set on enhancing his standing. Gatland is unlikely to promote the prodigious Osprey on the back of a few outings at full-back, though.Even so, as a bloke ballsy enough to manufacture a 79th-minute try in a Junior World Championship semi-final with a deft chip before nailing the touchline conversion for a one-point win, Davies won’t have to wait too long for further progress.Hidden TigerIf you want to learn, there’s not much point reclining in a comfort zone. Trading West Wales and a Scarlets bench spot for the East Midlands this summer, Owen Williams endeavoured to improve. It might seem slightly odd to label a move to the Aviva Premiership champions Leicester Tigers as a calculated gamble, but with Toby Flood and Ryan Lamb ahead of him in Richard Cockerill’s pecking order, that’s what it was.If he were to look back now, he can feel very content. Williams has usurped Lamb and treated Welford Road to some exceptional play – a virtuoso showing against Sale the stand-out so far. Blips such as Sunday’s missed conversion to beat Bath are merely part of the education. From the way he fizzes passes from the gainline, his class is evident. Gatland must have noted that.Little magicianlast_img read more

This will allow schools to apply for grants at a level of funding and for a duration which meets their individual needs and the depth of the work in which they wish to engage.The PACT programme was established in 2000 by Senator George Mitchell, with support from the Northern Ireland Fund for Reconciliation and to date has awarded over £475,000 to 143 projects involving 321 schools and organisationsacross Northern Ireland. The IEF has been supported in funding the new round of PACT by the Department of Education and BT.PACT Projects must involve two or more schools and these partnerships must represent at least two of the main traditions in Northern Ireland. Therefore, single school projects will not be funded and neither will single identity projects nor two integrated schools working together unless they have a partner school of a different tradition.The new programme will operate a three level grant structure with grants up to £5,000, £10,000 and £25,000 over the next three years.

Ukraine junta bans communism, honors fascists

first_imgProtest in Kharkov, Ukraine, in April 2014.Photo: BorotbaJust days before the Pentagon was set to begin training troops from Ukraine’s National Guard, including the notorious Azov Battalion, Kiev’s parliament voted 254-0 on April 10 to ban “communist propaganda,” communist symbols and anything deemed as “glorification” of Soviet history.The same day, the parliament, known at the Verkhovna Rada, officially approved the ultra-right Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) and its successor, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). The Rada declared the two groups “freedom fighters” entitled to receive benefits under the new law.The UPA/OUN and its leader, notorious Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, worked hand in hand with Hitler Germany during its World War II occupation of Soviet Ukraine. Later, during the Cold War, the UPA/OUN worked with the CIA to carry out terrorist actions against the USSR.Some 270 of the Rada’s 450 deputies voted in favor of the bill. No one dared vote against it.The night following the vote, right-wingers rampaged through the eastern city of Kharkov, tearing down three Soviet-era monuments. (Agence France Presse, April 11)According to an April 9 report in the independent Kiev newspaper, Vesti, the Security Service of Ukraine “blocked more than 10,000 websites” and “seized the servers” of web hosts. (Global Research, April 10)But there is resistance, too. April 10 is the anniversary of Odessa’s liberation from Nazi occupation. There people protested a visit by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Confronting neo-Nazi regime supporters, they chanted “Murderers!” and “Fascism will not pass!” ( a statement released on its Facebook page, the revolutionary Marxist organization Union Bortoba (Struggle) said: “Today’s decision by the Rada to ban communist ideology is the same logical and inevitable result of the victory of Euromaidan as are the civil war, Draconian utility rate increases and elimination of social benefits, along with the remnants of free education and health care.”Despite the ban, Borotba vows to “promote communist ideology in Ukraine with a vengeance.” Many of Borotba’s activists have been forced into exile, imprisoned and/or violently attacked.Erasing anti-fascist historyThe new laws were adopted in anticipation of the upcoming 70th anniversary of Soviet Victory Day over Nazi Germany on May 9. Ukrainian veterans of the conflict who display their Red Army uniforms and medals, or anti-fascists who carry replicas of the flag planted by Soviet troops atop the Reichstag (parliament) in Berlin when they liberated the city from Nazi rule in 1945, could face a prison sentence of 5 to 10 years.Those who collaborated with Hitler’s genocidal regime and their successors will be celebrated as heroes.This alliance of capitalist oligarchs, neoliberal politicians and neo-Nazis came to power in an illegal coup, funded and supported by Washington, in February 2014.One year ago, on April 13, 2014, Kiev’s new rulers launched a war of terror against the primarily Russian-speaking population of southeastern Ukraine, known as the Donbass, as well as against anti-fascists throughout the country.Ukrainian rightist forces violated the latest ceasefire agreement, negotiated by Russia, Germany and France in February, at least 200 times by the first week of April. Russia’s foreign ministry denounced the Rada’s communist ban.Alexander Smekalin, a deputy of the Donetsk People’s Republic Supreme Soviet and co-founder of the Union of Left Forces of Donbass, announced on social media April 13: “In light of recent events in the territories occupied by the Kiev junta, liberated Donbass will welcome refugees and displaced persons from the former Ukraine. We will provide political asylum for internationalists and anti-fascists.”‘Ban on Marxism, leftist ideology’A court case brought by the junta to ban the Communist Party of Ukraine (KPU) has not yet been decided. However, the new ban on communist “propaganda” and symbols sets the stage for such a ruling.Days before the Rada vote, on April 1, the Security Service of Ukraine — the country’s equivalent to the FBI — initiated a criminal case against KPU leader Peter Simonenko, charging him with responsibility for “terrorist activities” by party members, illegally obtaining Russian citizenship and collaboration with the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. (KPU statement,, April 1)Several other well-known Marxist leaders have recently been put on trial, including A.A. Majewski, editor of “Workers’ and Peasants’ Truth” and secretary of the All Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks), and former Rada Deputy Alexander Bondarchuk, editor of “Working Class” and chair of the All-Ukrainian Union of Workers.Andriy Manchuk, editor-in-chief of the Ukrainian Marxist website Liva (“The Left”), explained: “For those who do not understand, the bill is going to ban Marxism, among other things associated with the communists, and leftist ideology in general.”Manchuk was among those forced to seek refuge last year in Crimea, where residents voted in a popular referendum to rejoin Russia following the coup in Kiev.Fascists central to U.S. plans for UkraineThe anti-communist law adopted by the Rada cynically equates the Soviet Union with Nazi Germany and claims to ban the symbols and ideology of both. But this is merely a lie for international consumption — a flimsy attempt to make the latest wave of repression more palatable to Washington’s European junior partners.In fact, with Washington’s support, fascist elements are becoming more deeply integrated into the Kiev government and Ukrainian military, and Nazi symbolism is ever-present.Soldiers from the U.S. Army 172nd “Sky Soldiers” Airborne Brigade are scheduled to begin training members of Azov and other National Guard units on April 20. (Associated Press, March 31)In late March, a standoff between President Petro Poroshenko’s government and a rival oligarch, the ultra-rightist Igor Kolomoisky, ended when Washington reportedly came down in favor of the current regime. However, this is no move to the “left,” as the junta is integrating fascist elements into central roles in the state at an ever-quickening pace.Why? Working-class draftees have deserted or fled Ukraine in droves since the war against the Donbass republics began. Meanwhile, the neo-Nazis have proven to be the only motivated force in this war. Like the ultra-right Latin Americans trained at the “School of the Americas” at Ft. Benning, Ga., these elements are the backbone of U.S. plans to dominate the Donbass region and bring NATO bases to Russia’s western border.Case in point: Dmitry Yarosh, head of the fascist Right Sector and a Kolomoisky client, was appointed as a top advisor to Col. Gen. Viktor Muzhenko, chief of general staff of the Ukrainian military. Yarosh “will act as a link between the volunteer battalions and the General Staff,” military spokesperson Oleksiy Mazepa said. (AFP, April 7)The Right Sector’s 10,000-strong Ukrainian Volunteer Corps will be integrated into the chain of command and receive funding from the Ministry of ­Defense.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
