But we have had an encouraging win against Kenya. “It is a funny competition; England and Kenya were finalists last week and are down the bottom this week. We were fifth last week and we find ourselves down the bottom as well. It just goes to show how competitive this competition is,” Mic O’Connor, the Australian coach said after the win.In the Bowl quarters, a last gasp Willy Ambaka try was not enough to force the issue against the French who were inspired to victory by Terry Bouhraoua who scored a try and landed three conversions.The team returns to the country on Tuesday from their latest leg of the IRB World Sevens tour with the familiar feeling of blowing hot and cold following their heroics in New Zealand a week earlier.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, February 10- Kenya’s listless run at the Las Vegas Sevens came to an inglorious conclusion when the team lost 38-7 to Australia in the Shield semi finals to exit USA with no points on the board.After the high of making the final of the Wellington Sevens a week before Mike Friday’s charges surrendered to France 21-17 earlier in the Bowl quarters after losing two Group B matches to South Africa and Canada to end their interest in the Main Cup.last_img read more

UPDATED: GARDA McCALLION: ‘WE’LL CHANGE LAW TO PROTECT GARDAI’ VOW PARTIES

first_imgUPDATED: TWO political parties today vowed to change the law – to protect Gardai in the wake of the killing of Garda Robbie McCallion.Fine Gael and Labour say they will look at new ways of protecting officers after teen hood Jamie McGrenaghan was cleared by a jury of Gda McCallion’s manslaughter.A judge in the case – following current laws – had told the jury before they retired to consider the verdict, that the fact Mr McCallion was a Garda officer had no bearing on the decision they were about to take. Today Fine Gael Justice spokesman Charlie Flanagan said he would look at changing the law to protect gardai on duty.“An Garda Siochana must enjoy a special status under any new law,” said Mr Flanagan.“Officers work on our behalf and must therefore be given special protection and a new law must reflect this.”Labour spokesman Pat Rabbitte agreed: “A Garda on duty must be given special protection and a special standing in the eyes of the law.”Yesterday we revealed that thug death driver who killed brave Garda Robbie McCallion had committed six burglaries just a month before the tragic incident.The incidents all happened between February 26th and February 27th, 2009 at a caravan park in Fanad during which he stole a number of items from different mobile homes including stereos and binoculars.However he was not prosecuted for those until after the trial ended yesterday.It is unclear today who took the decision to prosecute these crimes and when.This meant the jury could be told by his defence team in the manslaughter case that he had no previous convictions.Throughout the three day trial the jury was told how McGrenaghan had a clean record and that he was under the influence of his associate Cathal Dunleavy, who had 45 previous convictions.Jamie McGrenaghan, 19, from Kerrykeel, pleaded guilty to those burglary charges on Friday afternoon – but only AFTER he was cleared of the most serious offence.He will be sentenced for all those offences – and causing the death of Garda McCallion by dangerous driving – next week.Today a close colleague of the dead officer told donegaldaily.com: “Serious questions needs to be asked about this whole process, especially when so much was made of his so-called clear record during this trial.”A friend of the family told us: “They are just devastated. They know that death driving and killing someone carries the same sentence as manslaughter, but they believed McGrenaghan was guilty of the latter.“They are also furious that he (McGrenaghan) was able to claim innocence based on no previous convictions when it is clear to all of us that while he had not actually been convicted of previous crimes, he was nonetheless guilty of them.“And God knows what else he did.”A full report on the court case is on the news/courts area.Did you know McGrenaghan? What do you think of the jury not being told of his crimes prior to killing an innocent Garda?

Tommy Wright hopes fourth place finish can boost St Johnstone budget

first_img“But the chairman is a realist and I’m a realist as well. He will do everything he can to help me. The league has been tougher this year.”With #100,000 at stake for each place involving Saints, Motherwell and Ross County, Wright’s men looked determined to bounce back from their early setback, when McDonald headed home Zander Clark’s sliced clearance.Wright said: “It’s important for that but within the group it’s important for pride. We want to win as many games as possible. We want to sit down at the end of the season and look back and say we have managed to get fourth again.”St Johnstone have now won all three games since the split. Tommy Wright hopes a fourth place finish in the Scottish Premiership would boost St Johnstone’s budget for next season.The Perth club took a significant step towards achieving that objective with victory over Motherwell on Saturday.The victory gave Wright further hope of an increase in the cash available to him in the summer, after being promised more money by chairman Steve Brown.“Well, I’m hoping,” Wright said when asked if fourth place would have a direct impact on his budget. “The chairman has said it will get bigger but he’s been like Lord Lucan the last few weeks. I had a positive meeting with him and haven’t seen him since. Wright said: “After the split you are playing the top teams, and a team that’s in pretty good form in Motherwell, so to come here and win after an early setback…“We probably could have scored more goals, I thought we were the better team after we got back to 1-1. It was a superb performance. They have been superb all season but particularly after the split.”last_img read more

David Moyes looking for club job ahead of Scotland role

first_imgThe Scot had a spell as manager of Real Sociedad and said he would be open to any offers from Spain or from across the continent.“I think I’d be open to whatever’s right,” he said. “I played for Celtic. The best league to manage in is the English Premier League. “But I’ve got to say, if I got a chance to go back and work in Spain again or a chance to work in Germany or Italy I would take those opportunities as well.”Moyes said that whoever was appointed as the manager of the Scotland team would have a challenging job but expressed the opinion that facilities had to be improved to produce better players in the longer term. David Moyes has said he would favour a return to club management over international football but has stopped short of ruling out the Scotland job.The former Everton, Manchester United, Sunderland and West Ham boss has been out of work since the end of last season but has been linked with the vacant Scotland manager’s position as well as being the permanent successor to Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.He told a national radio station: “I prefer the day-to-day but can I see myself being a national manager? Of course.“But at the moment my first choice would be to go back into club management.” “Scotland is not an easy job and it hasn’t been an easy job for whoever has been in charge for quite a while now,” he said. “We just don’t seem to have got it quite right. “I look at how well England have done and the amount of good young players England have got. England have got an array of young talent, and I actually think that years and years ago when they got St George’s Park sorted and doing things the way they have done has been really good. “But for example I also look at Iceland and the population they have got, they have put in loads of indoor arenas and full-size pitches because they can’t play or train much in the winter, yet Scotland is much the same.”last_img read more
