Piutau advocates for Pacific rugby players in Europe

first_imgPhoto: PHOTOSPORT Charles Piutau has 17 All Black caps. The 17-test All Black is currently plying his trade for Irish side Ulster and is the first Pro12 representative on the board, providing a voice for players of Pacific heritage in Ireland, Scotland, Wales & Italy.The 25-year-old said he was excited about the prospect of helping improve conditions for Pacific Islanders and their families abroad.”I’m glad to be joining PRPW and contributing to the great work that the guys are doing amongst our European/Pacific community. The Pacific culture is all about giving back and being a part of this initiative gives me a chance to do that,” he said.Piutau, who is the younger brother of Tonga captain Siale Piutau, joins a who’s who list Northern-Hemisphere-based players of Pacific Island heritage, including England internationals Mako Vunipola, Nathan Hughes and Manu Tuilagi, former All Black John Afoa, ex Wallaby Matt To’omua, Manu Samoa halfback Kahn Fotual’ii, Fiji’s Nemani Nadolo and Tonga’s Soane Tongahuia.Pacific Rugby Players Welfare Director Dan Leo said having someone like Charles Piutau on board was a “real coup”.”You see a lot of good players come over here, who played for the All Blacks for instance, or the Wallabies, that don’t cut it at the highest level over here in Europe and can actually struggle,” he said.”Whereas Charles has transitioned into European rugby like a duck to water so with that comes a lot of respect for what he’s done on the field but off the field as well he’s a person who puts his money where his mouth is, so to speak, and he’s actually made the decision to come over here at the detriment of his own All Blacks career.”Putting his family first and obviously there’s a lot of money to be earned over…really putting the family first and the extended community first and that’s what every Pacific Islander, it’s at the forefront of our thinking and it’s intertwined into our being.”Daniel Leo said 20 percent of all professional rugby players these days are of Pacific Island heritage and whether they represent Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Australia or New Zealand, they experience the same issues.He said, since its formation 18 months ago, the focus of Pacific Rugby Players Welfare has been supporting players on the ground, helping them navigate challenges like contract or agent disputes and preparing for life after rugby through education and work experience.”Our players have said to us when push comes to shove we need to be able to keep our community’s agenda at the forefront of every decision that we’re making, ” he said.”So we’ve purposely kept a distance from World Rugby and the International Rugby Players Association, which are funded by World Rugby, in order to represent our people in the best way we can.””We’re currently making inroads to working with the British military,” said Leo, who won 42 test caps for Manu Samoa and the Pacific Islanders.”Myself and three of our other directors just met with the Fijian ambassador to the UK and really just trying to establish mental health services that are provided by the army predominantly to the Fijian soldiers.”…And really trying to tap into those services and saying if you’ve got a repore working with Fijian soldiers then maybe there’s a crossover to providing services for the 600 plus rugby players that we’ve got here in Europe as well.”last_img read more

She’s going to be a physical one.

first_imgAll Blacks flanker Sam Cane was straight to the point, admitting South Africa would push his side to the limit in next weekend’s Albany Test.Having endured the year from hell last year, the Springboks have picked up a head of steam in 2017 and are yet to lose a Test.A 3-0 series whitewash over France in June has made way for an encouraging Rugby Championship start, twice beating Argentina and drawing with Australia.The All Blacks, meanwhile, have won three from three – but only after frights against Australia and Argentina and struggling with their skill execution.Cane said South Africa would require another lift in intensity.They had clearly unified under the captaincy of lock Eben Etzebeth, and were laying the foundations for a 2019 Rugby World Cup tilt.”They love these matches and so do we,” the 25-year-old Cane said.”The history between these two sides, it comes out even today, and when it’s out on the field it’s pretty evident – we know what we’re going to get.”They’ve obviously had a few troubles but they’ve come together and they’ve always got a strong squad, always manage to put out a good team.”Coach Steve Hansen admitted to only having a cursory glance at South Africa’s 23-23 draw with Australia after his side’s 39-22 win over Los Pumas.He would do a more detailed analysis in the coming days.Irrespective of that review, Hansen confirmed Aaron Smith would return to the Test No.9 jumper next weekend, with his bullet passing a major asset.The likes of Sam Whitelock, Ryan Crotty and Cane – who started on the bench against Argentina – are also near-certainties to slot back into the XV.”South Africa are playing really well,” Hansen said.”They seem to be incredibly tight with each other, so they’re building something from a cultural point of view and that’ll make them more dangerous.”last_img read more

Tuchel stopped Mbappé after the change, taking him by the shoulders while the Frenchman covered his mouth to speak with his coach before refusing the jacket and sitting on the bench. The coach jerked the striker at a press conference: “If you think I lack authority … I am the coach. Someone has to decide who goes out and who enters and that is me. Kylian is very smart, he knows what he is doing. He doesn’t like to go out. No player likes it. These are not good images, but we are not the only club that has that kind of reaction. I saw it in Dortmund, I saw it before in Liverpool and Manchester City. I see many matches and these situations often occur. It is not good, because it opens discussions. Our group is very professional and very focused and this type of image gives another impression and is a shame. I am not angry, I am sad. I explained why I did this. It will continue like this, I will continue to decide things sportively. We don’t play tennis, we play soccer, we have to respect everyone. “ 7last_img read more
