Classic Encounters – Toulouse vs Racing Metro

first_imgThursday Sep 15, 2011 Classic Encounters – Toulouse vs Racing Metro The Rugby World Cup is definitely the biggest thing happening on the world stage at the moment, but try telling that to French Top 14 supporters. They packed out Stade Municipal de Toulouse on the weekend for what turned out to be an absolute classic. All Black outcast Luke McAlister has started a new chapter in his career with Toulouse, and by all accounts, its going swimmingly. The former Auckland Blues and Sales Sharks player guided his team to a brilliant 41-36 win over Racing Metro, with McAlister himself playing an integral role. He also kicked a 63m penalty.A personal tally of 21 points and commanding flyhalf play led to Racing Metro’s first defeat of the season. Tries were scored for Toulouse by captain Yannick Nyanga, Clement Pointrenaud, while Yannick Jauzion scored two.While France are over in New Zealand looking to achieve their best ever World Cup result, a win, there are still a host of the highest quality of players plying their trade in the Top 14. And that’s just the locals.Nyanga, who himself was outstanding, was full of praise for McAlister, who wasn’t included in an All Blacks squad jam-packed with talented backs. “Luke? He’s a world class player,” Nyanga said.“At Stade, we’ve always had good fly-halves. We were very good there. He launches our game-plan perfectly and is always moving us forward. It’s always easy to play with a 10 like that,” he added.Below are extended highlights of the match (playlist), coming to just under 20 minutes in total. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

March sales were originally reported at 384,000.Mark Vitner, senior economist and managing director at Wells Fargo, said more favorable weather may have helped boost sales, noting that the Midwest—where transactions rocketed up 47.4 percent—has enjoyed a mild tornado season relative to historical norms.Growth in the South was slow at only 3.1 percent compared to March, while activity was flat in the West. Meanwhile, the Northeast saw a 26.7 percent drop in sales over the month.Compared to last year, new home sales at the national level fell 4.2 percent short. Analysts anticipate this season will be milder than last year, when mortgage rates were just coming off of all-time lows and homes were comparatively more affordable.“We were hoping we’d be a lot better than we were a year ago, so there’s a lot of disappointment, but we have to have stronger job growth than we’ve had,” Vitner said. “I think when we get the May numbers, we’ll be back even or slightly ahead.”The Commerce Department reported the median price of new houses sold in April was $275,800, down nearly $6,000 compared to March. The average price was $320,100, down $6,600.Meanwhile, the stock of new homes available for sale at the end of April was a seasonally adjusted 192,000, representing a supply of 5.3 months at the current sales rate.
