Umaga-Jensen’s solo flight

first_imgThe 19-year-old will wear jersey No 12 on debut for Wellington in Wednesday night’s Mitre 10 Cup match against Hawke’s Bay, a year after Peter made his debut in Napier.The family’s newest Lion won’t be joined in the 23 by his brother who is still recovering from shoulder surgery. But with mother Rachael Umaga and father Tony Jensen – a former hard-running Wainuiomata club stalwart – proudly watching on, it will be a memorable night for all concerned.”It’s a pretty good coincidence. My brother’s first game was against Hawke’s Bay too. For me to do the same is pretty special for my mum and dad who are avid fans of Wellington Lions so I’m honouring them by going out there,” Thomas Umaga-Jensen said.”Also my uncle, Tana, he made a legend of himself for the Lions. Just to make my family proud, I can’t wait to run out there for the first time on Westpac and play some good footy.”Wednesday’s match will mark exactly two years since the Umaga-Jensen twins suffered a narrow defeat in the national schools’ final for Scots College against Rotorua Boys’ High School.Thomas then sought a change of scene in Dunedin to study geography and education at Otago University, and played for the University club. He underwent hip injury late last year, and made the New Zealand Under-20 squad and the Highlanders’ wider group, which will lure him south again to try and crack Super Rugby.”I’m heading back down and I’ll try to build my way up there and see what I can do. It works out well for my studies down there; in Dunedin for the first part of the season and back here to play for Wellington.”And, potentially an on-field reunion with his twin who helped him carve up schoolboy defences for Scots, which saw them share the 2014 national title. They turn 20 on New Year’s Eve.”He’s always pushed me to do my best and I’ve always pushed him to do his best. Hopefully next year, if I’m still in the team, we’ll get to play alongside each other again and create some magic.”Thomas showed his class in a Swindale Shield cameo for Wainuiomata in April, a 42-40 defeat to Marist St Pat’s. He impressed Wellington coach Chris Gibbes with his fitness and work ethic and will slot comfortably into a backline between Jackson Garden-Bachop and Hurricane Wes Goosen.”I’m not looking for superstars; I just want him [Umaga-Jensen] to do his job. If he does that he’s shown he’s got a massive amount of talent. If he creates space for others and takes his little opportunities then I’ll be happy,” Gibbes said.Wellington hadn’t beaten Hawke’s Bay in four years, till their 36-26 victory in Napier last August. But the unbeaten Lions will be pronounced favourites this time, even without All Blacks squad members Vaea Fifita and Jeff To’omaga-Allen, and rested forwards Brad Shields and Sam Lousi, from their clinical 31-10 win over Bay of Plenty last Thursday.The Magpies are amid an injury crisis which worsened after Friday’s 53-10 defeat to Canterbury, and saw captain and hooker Ash Dixon, first five-eighth Ihaia West and No 8 Marino Mikaele-Tu’u all ruled out of the trip to Wellington.Also missing is new Hurricanes recruit Gareth Evans and veteran prop Ben May, although coach Craig Philpott named US Eagle Tony Lamborn at No 8 after a shoulder problem.Tiaan Falcon, a NZ Under-20 team-mate of Umaga-Jensen’s, will steer the ship at first-five.AT A GLANCEWhat: Mitre 10 Cup, week fourWhere and when: Westpac Stadium, Wellington, 7.35pm Wednesday​Wellington: Andrew Wells, Julian Savea, Wes Goosen, Thomas Umaga-Jensen, Ben Lam, Jackson Garden-Bachop, Sheridan Rangihuna, Teariki Ben-Nicholas, Du’Plessis Kirifi, Galu Taufale, James Blackwell (captain), Isaia Walker-Leawere, Alex Fidow, Asafo Aumua, Tolu Fahamokioa. Reserves: Sitiveni Paongo, Vince Sakaria, Joe Apikotoa, Will Mangos, James Tuiatua, Kemara Hauiti-Parapara, Dan Kirkpatrick, Malo Tuitama.​Hawke’s Bay: Richard Buckman, Jonah Lowe, Hayden Hann, Cardiff Vaega, Sam McNicol, Tiaan Falcon, Brad Weber (captain), Tony Lamborn, Hugh Renton, Lucas Goodin, Geoff Cridge, Nick Palmer, Jarvy Aoake, Jacob Devery, Mark Braidwood. Reserves: Jorian Tangaere, Jason Long, Pouri Rakete-Stones, Joshua Eden-Whaitiri, Fa’alemiga Selesele, Ricky Hayes, Chris Eaton, Dan Snee.

All set for tomorrow’s McKenley-Wint Classic

first_imgAndrea Hardware, the head of the organising committee for the McKenley/Wint Classic, has declared that all is in place for tomorrow’s meet at Calabar High on Red Hills Road. “We are pulling out all the stops to ensure that we have another good showing … we want to do better than what we did a year ago because we want to ensure that anything that has to do with the legacy of McKenley and Wint will be of the highest quality,” said Hardware. Hardware was a bit concerned last year about the accommodation of the athletes and fans. New arrangements have now been put in place. “First, I must thank one of our sponsors, Main Events, which has reached out to us by providing temporary seating to ensure that everyone is comfortable. We are all happy for this because honestly, we did not expect such a big turnout last year, and we do not want our athletes and spectators to be unhappy,” Hardware said. A year ago, there were entries from 62 teams, and Hardware expects that number to be even higher tomorrow. “On Monday night I was a bit nervous as we had only two entries, but since Tuesday, the numbers have increased significantly,” she said. Entries closed on Wednesday. The Class Two boys 400 metres hurdles starts off proceedings at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow. Also included in this year’ schedule for high schools will be the boys’ pole vault open. Competition for clubs and colleges will start at 2 p.m., with males and females with the fastest times over the 400 and 800 metres set to collect cash prizes of $50,000 each, donated by the Calabar past students and families of the late Wint and McKenley.last_img read more

Novak Djokovic: ‘I’d be lying if Roger Federer record not on my mind’

(Photo by Anne-Christine POUJOULAT / AFP)Novak Djokovic admitted he’d be “lying” if overhauling Roger Federer’s mark of 20 Grand Slam titles was not on his mind but insisted Saturday it will be a great challenge to get there, especially with the sport’s widely-hyped young generation stepping up.Djokovic, who sent out an early warning ahead of the official kick-off of his 2019 season with a 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 victory over Kevin Anderson to win the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, took his Grand Slam tally to 14 by picking up the Wimbledon and US Open titles within the span of the last five months.ADVERTISEMENT The 31-year-old Serb is currently six majors behind Federer and three adrift of Rafael Nadal, but is likely to keep up the pressure on his rivals this upcoming season considering how he recaptured his dominating form in the second half of 2018.Asked if there is a record he dreams of capturing before the end of his career, Djokovic said: “I would lie if I say I didn’t want to get to as high as Grand Slam wins number possible.

High Court blocks Chief Magistrate from hearing Singh, Brassington case

first_imgSOCU chargesHigh Court judge, Justice Franklin Holder has granted an application filed by lawyers for former Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh and former National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) Head Winston Brassington, to halt the proceedings at the Magistrates’ Courts with respect to criminal charges of misconduct in public office laid against them.Attorney-at-Law Anil Nandlall and Sase Gunraj surrounded by members of the press at the High Court on Monday (Carl Croker photo)The direction was made on Monday to have a stay of proceedings by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan until the High Court completed the challenge for the dismissal of the charges case.This, therefore, means that Dr Singh and Brassington are no longer required to appear at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on June 5, 2018 as was ruled by the Chief Magistrate.Three criminal charges were brought against the two former officials by the State through the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) in relation to the sale of lands.Dr Singh and Brassington are being represented by a battery of lawyers, including former Attorney General (AG) Anil Nandlall, Senior Counsel Stanley Moore, Sase Gunraj, Ronald Burch-Smith and Mark Waldron.Dr Ashni Singh and Winston BrassingtonFollowing the in-camera proceedings, Attorney Nandlall said that the Judge reasoned that the integrity of the legal process has to be protected.“The reasoning is you can’t have an inferior court to hear and determine charges when their validity has been challenged in the High Court,” Nandlall told reporters.He observed that Justice Holder’s stay of proceedings was granted in light of fixed date application proceedings, which are set to be heard before acting Chief Justice Roxane George. This relates to Dr Singh and Brassington’s application to have all of the charges quashed. The first hearing of that case will be on May 25.On April 12, SOCU instituted charges against the former Government officials, who worked under People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administrations.On May 8, 2018, Dr Singh and Brassington appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and were released on $6 million bail each.In the three charges that were advanced by SOCU, it was indicated that Singh, being the Chairman of NICIL and Brassington being the CEO in December of 2008 by way of Agreement of Sale and Purchase sold to Scady Business Corporation a tract of State land (4.7 acres) being a portion of Plantation Liliendaal, situated on the East Coast of Demerara for the sum of $150,000, 000 “knowing that the said property was valued at $340,000,000 by Rodrigues Architects Associate, a competent valuation officer.”Similarly, the other charge outlined that Singh and Brassington sold to Multicinemas Guyana Inc a plot of State land (10 acres) at Turkeyen for the sum of $185,037,000 “without first having procured a valuation of the said property from a competent valuation officer”.Moreover, it was outlined that Singh and Brassington in 2009, by way of an agreement of sale and Purchase sold to the National Hardware Guyana Limited a tract of State land (103 acres), being a portion of Plantation Liliendaal and Turkeyen for the sum of $598, 659,398 (VAT exclusive) “without first having procured a valuation of the said property from a competent valuation officer”.However, after these charges were instituted, Nandlall challenged their validity in the High Court. Since the institution of the charges, a number of legal scholars have commented on the matter, with former Speaker, Senior Counsel Ralph Ramkarran deeming the charges unconstitutional on the grounds that Singh and Brassington were not “public officers” in accordance with the Constitution.

TRANSFER ALERT! Arsenal close to £13m deal for La Liga, say reports in Spain

first_img1 Arsenal are closing in on a deal to sign Celta Vigo striker Nolito, claim reports in Spain.Barcelona were in contention to re-sign their former forward but talks have broken down due to the Catalan club’s reluctance to meet the player’s £13m release clause.That, according to Mundo Deportivo, has paved the way for Arsenal to make contact with Celta Vigo and talks are reportedly progressing well.The Gunners are keen to add a striker to their squad in January and see Nolito as the man to provide competition for Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.The 29-year-old has found the net eight times in 15 appearances this campaign to help Celta Vigo to sixth in La Liga.
