Why the hype over France’s Gael Fickou

No Comments

first_imgToulouse’s centre Gael Fickou eyes the ball during the French Top 14 rugby union match Stade Toulousain vs. Mont-de-Marsan on August 25, 2012 at the Ernest Wallon Stadium in Toulouse , southern France. AFP PHOTO PASCAL PAVANI (Photo credit should read PASCAL PAVANI/AFP/GettyImages) Too much too soon: Over-exposure may lead to another young star burning outBy Gavin MortimerLET’S NOT get carried away. Gael Fickou had a good game for Toulouse in their win over Leicester on Sunday, but was the 18-year-old’s try-scoring performance really that special?  Sure, Fickou showed the presence of mind and a sharp turn of pace to pounce on a loose ball and sprint 45 metres for the only try of a disappointing game. That was enough to convince one British newspaper that Fickou is set to be “rugby’s next global superstar”. A wee bit premature on the back of one Heineken Cup match against a Tigers team with surprisingly blunt claws.Nonetheless Fickou clearly has class. Standing 6ft 2in and 14stone, he was the star of the French team in last summer’s U20 World Cup in South Africa. Fickou scored three tries in four matches, proof that Toulouse were right to offer him a home after he was released by Toulon at the end of last season.Unable to earn a place in a Toulon backline containing Matt Giteau and Maxime Mermoz, Fickou has quickly been given his opportunity at Toulouse. So far this season he’s made five appearances in the Top 14, scoring one try and earning cautious praise from that wily old campaigner Guy Noves. The veteran coach describes Fickou as “intelligent” [he hopes to combine his rugby with a degree in commerce and management], and says his attitude “corresponds to the Toulouse philosophy.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS However, during his 19 years in charge of Toulouse, Noves has seen more than his fair share of promising teenage players fail to negotiate the rocky path from adolescence to manhood. Admitting that the club has a lot of hope for Fickou, Noves said that he must “work hard for two or three seasons if he wants to reach the top level”. Then he added: “Is Gaël Fickou the best centre in France today? No. Could he be one day? I don’t know, we’ll see. He wants to work [at becoming the best] and we’re going to help him.” So is Philippe Saint-Andre, the coach of France who on Tuesday named Fickou in his 33-man squad for the autumn Tests.Les Bleus face Argentina, Australia and Samoa next month and there’s a good chance Fickou will win his first cap in one of those matches. One notable absentee from the French squad is Aurélien Rougerie, the veteran Clermont centre who looks to have played his last Test for France. Who needs a 32-year-old when you have the 18-year-old Fickou, the 24-year-old Wesley Fofana and the 26-year-old Maxime Mermoz? “At the moment I have the impression to be living the dream,” said Fickou in the wake of his man of the match performance against Leicester. He then thanked his Toulouse teammates, notably fellow centres Yannick Jauzion and Florian Fritz, for their help in bringing him this far. So he’s modest, too…the boy appears to have everything!Who knows, perhaps Fickou really is “rugby’s next global superstar” , or perhaps he’s just another good player put on a pedestal by a media always on the lookout for heroes. Don’t forget they were saying the same thing about Danny Cipriani six years ago, and these days the 24-year-old struggles to get in to the Sale team.last_img read more

Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

No Comments

first_img TAGS: Cardiff Blues I’m back! Nehe Milner-Skudder scores one of his three tries for Hurricanes v the Rebels (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS He only started one match for the Springboks, against Australia six years ago, but Johnson has proved a cracking signing for the current Premiership leaders, able to play back-row or hooker with unfailing gusto and reliability.He’s scored 22 tries in those 100 games, with only Paul Volley (23 in 119 games), Trevor Leota (26 in 146) and Joe Worsley (28 in 218) ahead of him among players in the same position.Dave Ward, who captained Harlequins to their dramatic win at Kingsholm, is another who’s doing a lot for the reputation of flanker-hookers right now.Outstanding service: Ashley Johnson offloads in Wasps’ 24-3 Premiership win at Bath (Getty)THE SINNERSStretched resourcesNot for the first time, the issue of player release in Wales has reared its head.It’s not Wales’ fault that Cardiff Blues have a long casualty list that includes the likes of Gethin Jenkins, Rey Lee-Lo, Josh Turnbull and Ellis Jenkins. But they do have the power to release Blues players from the national camp for Guinness Pro12 duty.Instead, Alex Cuthbert, Kristian Dacey and Scott Andrews, and more understandably Sam Warburton, were retained in camp while Blues went into battle with Munster without 14 players. And their hopes of Champions Cup qualification took a dent as they succumbed 23-13.Players like to get game time, and keeping them back – no matter what the rules say – seems counter-productive. Certainly the Irish are taking a different approach.Soft landing: Tom James and Robin Copeland tangle in Blues’ loss to Munster (Huw Evans Agency)Falling on his sword?Where does the blame lie for Gloucester’s stunning late collapse at home to Harlequins?With captain Willi Heinz, for not taking all the potential points on offer from penalty kicks?With hooker Richard Hibbard, who ignored the referee’s instruction to release the ball at a ruck and got needlessly sin-binned with nine minutes remaining?Head coach Laurie Fisher clearly felt he should carry the can, as this extraordinary tweet shows: The sensational Hurricanes, the Blitzboks march on in windy Las Vegas and tweet dreams at Gloucester – it’s been another eventful week in the world of rugby center_img Leading 27-15 with eight minutes to play, Gloucester crashed 30-27 to incur a tenth Premiership defeat of the season. They sit in ninth spot and Champions Cup qualification looks a distant dream.Blow me downFor the second year running, the Las Vegas Sevens was marred by a powerful wind that severely hampered the players.Passes and kicks became something of a lottery, with one pass in the final by South Africa’s Rosko Specman blowing at least ten metres forward but being adjudged okay because of the angle of his hands.England’s Richard De Carpentier almost hurt himself landing on concrete when chasing down a grubber kick that picked up speed in the wind. THE SAINTSBeware of HurricanesThe Lions won’t need reminding of what awaits them in New Zealand this summer, but they got another memo anyway.The Hurricanes provided a sensational attacking exhibition against the Rebels, scoring 11 tries in a 71-6 thrashing in Wellington.Nehe Milner-Skudder, playing his first Super Rugby game for a year after shoulder surgery, scored a hat-trick and his second try owed much to a huge left-hand pass by replacement hooker Ricky Riccitelli.Julian Savea only scored once but what a move, as backs and forwards interlinked for the length of the field. Two offloads, by TJ Perenara and Brad Shields, showed the lightning speed of hands we associate with Kiwi players.Ard man: Ardie Savea was prominent again as Hurricanes took Rebels to the cleaners (Getty Images)Vince Aso, playing because of a neck injury to Cory Jane, grabbed two tries and the first followed Beauden Barrett’s decision to run from his own line off a defensive scrum.Perenara, heavily involved in that score and just about everything else, did a lot of sprint training in the off-season and looks electric.The Lions may have a blinding full-back in Stuart Hogg but the All Blacks can take their pick from the magical feet of Milner-Skudder, offloading king Damian McKenzie and Ben Smith, the world’s best 15 who’s currently sitting things out with concussion. Gulp.Blitzboks running away with itSouth Africa had the rub of the green in their 19-12 Las Vegas Sevens final win over Fiji, but there’s no disputing their new-found status as the world’s best sevens team.HSBC World Sevens Series runners-up for the past four years, the Blitzboks have now won four of the first five tournaments this season and have a massive 24-point lead in the standings.They’ve lost just two of their 30 matches and are turning the series into something of a procession.Pulling clear: South Africa savour winning the Las Vegas Sevens – their fourth event title this seasonEngland are the only team to have beaten them – in the Cape Town final and in a pool game in Sydney – and they had to settle for fifth place in Vegas.With 19 seconds left against Australia, England’s 13th man, teenager Charlton Kerr, trotted on for his debut with his team trailing 7-5.Kerr, who starred for Stowe at successive Rosslyn Park Schools tournaments, not only tidied up an awkward loose ball in his own 22 but then got on the end of Dan Norton’s pass after the winger’s kick and chase. The delight of Kerr’s team-mates was clear to see.Work, rest and playBT Sport introduced a new element to their coverage of Aviva Premiership rugby at Welford Road – the work-to-rest ratio.Thus, we were told that Exeter have this season produced 44 minutes of work for each 47 minutes of rest on the field, giving them a ratio of 0.92 – an extremely high figure.Leicester’s average is 0.69 so the high tempo and ball-in-play time suited the Chiefs to a tee. The Tigers struggled to stay with the pace in a match that saw a final figure of 0.9.Just another layer of detail to BT Sport’s excellent coverage.Big shift: No 8 Thomas Waldrom is tackled by Ellis Genge during Exeter’s win at Leicester (Getty)The 100 clubHow fitting that Ashley Johnson assumed the Wasps captaincy on Saturday after Matt Mullan left the fray at Bath.It was Johnson’s 100th Premiership appearance and he becomes the 22nd player to achieve that milestone for Wasps. You could argue that players must have the skills to adapt to the conditions. Or you could argue that all of us want to see sevens played at its best and thank goodness the show moves on to Vancouver’s indoor stadium this weekend.Rock DJ: England’s Tom Mitchell can’t stop DJ Forbes scoring for NZ in the Vegas QF (Icon/Getty)For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

2018 Six Nations: an injured XV

No Comments

first_img Front Row – WP Nel, Ross Ford, Zander FagersonAs you’d expect, Scottish players dominate in this area because there are simply so many of them out. Scotland coach Gregor Townsend has lost at least six of his finest front-rowers. WP Nel has a broken arm, Ford has a pectoral injury, and Fagerson is out with a foot problem.Experienced Absences: Ross Ford (right) will miss the entire tournament whereas Richie Gray (left) may or may not be out with a calf complaintSecond Row – Jake Ball, Richie GrayWelshman Ball is definitely out for the entire tournament after dislocating his shoulder during the autumn Internationals last year. He required surgery and will likely be out for the rest of the season. Scotland and Toulouse lock Gray is more questionable. A long standing back problem has been rearing its ugly head sporadically of late, and a calf issue has also meant he is ruled out of the opener against Wales.Back Row – Sam Warburton, Sean O’Brien, Billy VunipolaWounded Beast: Vunipola fractured his arm against the Ospreys, only a couple of games after returning from four months outThese three players, if playing together, would create nightmares at the break down and generate good front foot ball with their powerful marauding runs. Warburton and Vunipola in particular, have had terrible luck regarding injuries recently. It feels as if Warburton has long-standing knee problems and Vunipola had only just recovered from a four month lay-off due to a knee issue, when he fractured his arm playing for Saracens in the Champions Cup. Both will miss the whole tournament.However, we could be seeing Sean O’Brien at some point, depending on his recovery from a hip injury.(A brief mention should also go towards Jamie Heaslip and Taulupe Faletau who are both set to miss time during the six Nations but narrowly miss out on our XV)FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREScrum-Half – Rhys Webb Free running: Rhys Webb may have played his last game in a Welsh jersey after his injuryWebb, the most recent Welsh Lion to be ruled out of the tournament, has injured his knee and will not play any part in the tournament. To top off the bad news the WRU introduced a 60-cap selection rule for foreign-based players, coinciding with his lucrative move to Toulon. In terms of our XV, the British and Irish Lion would give quick ball to the backs whilst also taking control of the all-star forwards above. Injuries have been the main story leading into the 2018 tournament, so Sam Tremlett has put together an Injured XV that include some of the best players in the world. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Fly-Half – Dan BiggarA Big Loss: Biggar showed his match winning capabilities against South Africa in 2017. He will be missed.You could possibly have Camille Lopez at ten, but we have gone for Biggar. The feisty fly-half showed his mettle on the recent Lions tour and can put a stranglehold on games. He guided Wales to victory against South Africa in the autumn with two clever dink kicks, as well as a charge down, which all lead to tries. He is set to miss at least three weeks due to a shoulder injury.Centres – Henry Slade, Jonathan DaviesAnkle Trouble: Jonathan Davies with a look of resignation as he knows his injury is serious (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images)Hurt during his Exeter side’s loss to Glasgow during the Champions Cup, Henry Slade withdrew from the England squad due to a shoulder injury. After starting two of the three autumn Tests, Slade was in the mix for England’s midfield but his absence created yet more problems for Eddie Jones.Alongside Slade we have Lions Man of the Series, Jonathan Davies. A foot injury picked up against Australia has ruled the 13 out of the tournament. An intelligent kicking game combined with an outside break makes him more than dangerous when going forward. And on the defensive end, he relishes hunting for tackles. Beaded Barrett said Davies was the player he most admired outside the All Blacks. Praise indeed.Back Three – Elliot Daly, Liam Williams, Semesa Rokoduguni Ecstatic England: Daly slides over to score the match winning try against the Welsh. He will not repeat this moment in 2018.Daly, who scored the winning try against Wales last year, will not be reproducing any heroics in 2018 after he suffered a serious ankle injury whilst playing for Wasps. His speed is electric, and he has a howitzer of a boot. You’re likely to remember Daly’s absence whenever England have any penalties around the 50 metre mark.On the other side of the field we have Semesa Rokoduguni. A powerful runner, the Fijian is recovering from surgery on his shoulder so he is poised to miss a big chunk of the tournament – if he is to be used by Eddie Jones at all. Liam Williams is another terrible loss to a Welsh side down on its luck at the moment. An abdominal injury has been limiting his training and game time and it doesn’t appear to be responding to treatment. His injury could even require an operation. One of the most unpredictable back-three players in the world, his devastating attacking ability, particularly from full-back, has caused problems to some of the finest players in the world. For many years to come we’ll be talking about ho Williams sparked Sean O’Brien’s wonder try against the All Blacks in the first Lions Test.Elusive Lion: Liam Williams caused the All Blacks constant problems during the Lions Tour, and is a big loss for the Welshlast_img read more

Trial by the press is often off base and is always unjust. Let’s not make it a hallmark of the Episcopal News Service. Whatever Isaac did or did not do, he is God’s child, and he is in a terrible place. He needs our prayers. With Danny Anderson I pray Light Perpetual shines upon the parents and murdered child. Emmanuel will need our ongoing prayers and the ministries of the Church, family, and friends. He will need long-term professional help as well.Two souls Jesus died for are at risk here. I hope people are paying attention.

The more i read about the oldest son MIA, seemingly lying about entering the military, the more i feared it was hewho murdered his family. We should pray for him as well. i do not know what causes someone to commit such a heinous act. If the son did kill his family, it compounds the tragedy. RIP Father Israel & family.

An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Martinsville, VA Featured Events In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Knoxville, TN [Episcopal Diocese of Texas] The eldest son of the Rev. Israel Ahimbisibwe, Isaac Tiharihondi, was arrested in Mississippi and has been charged with two counts of capital murder, according to media reports. Ahimbisibwe, his wife Dorcas and five-year-old son Jay were found dead in their west Houston apartment on Feb. 2 after they failed to show up for church Sunday and did not respond to numerous attempts to contact them.The Rev. Israel Ahimbisibwe“While I am relieved authorities have found Isaac, I am heartbroken that he has been charged with capital murder,” said the Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle, bishop of Texas. “This only adds to the tragedy of their deaths and raises more questions than it answers.”Ahimbisibwe, a native of Uganda, was vicar of Church of the Redeemer and chaplain at the University of Houston. He had previously served as an assistant at Holy Spirit, Houston. Emmanuel, 17, Ahimbisibwe’s middle son, is in boarding school in California.“As a Christian community, let us pray for Emmanuel and Isaac as they journey through this time of grief and sorrow,” Doyle said. “Let us also pray for our courts and our prisons, that all involved will be given clarity of mind, peace and wisdom. Our Book of Common Prayer reminds us to ‘pray that any that are held unjustly be released and that those who are guilty find repentance and amendment of life.’ We follow a God in Jesus Christ who is present with those who suffer. Let us be faithful to the God of love and forgiveness.”Funeral arrangements are pending.
