first_imgPoland 4 Lithuania 0: Lewandowski on song ahead of Russia Matt Dorman 02:07 6/13/18 Robert Lewandowski - cropped Getty Images Poland’s World Cup opponents will be on red alert after Robert Lewandowski sparked a big friendly win over Lithuania. Robert Lewandowski appeared in ominous touch ahead of the World Cup as he scored twice in Poland’s accomplished 4-0 win over Lithuania on Tuesday.The Bayern Munich striker improved his tally to four goals in three international outings with a first-half brace that laid the foundation for 21-year-old David Kownacki and substitute Jakub Blaszczykowski to later put the result beyond doubt.Adam Nawalka’s men are likely to lean heavily on their star striker in Russia and Lewandowski, judging by his 45-minute effort in Warsaw, looks ready to handle the weight of expectation.

We should not completely stop them because their work is very important. We should train them to assist us in addressing the health challenges that we are facing.Expanding opportunities for non-physicians to act as skilled birth attendants may help to stem the tide of maternal deaths in countries where doctors, midwives and nurses may not exist in the needed numbers. Evidence suggests that having a skilled birth attendant present at birth leads to fewer incidences maternal and child mortality and morbidity. If TBAs are properly trained as Mutharika suggests, they may be able to play a major role in reducing Malawi’s high maternal mortality ratio.In January 2010, with the support of MHTF and UNFPA, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars hosted a Maternal Health Policy Dialogue on “Human Resources for Maternal Health: Midwives, TBAs and Task-Shifting.” To view the webcast and read the event summary, click here.

Who will be the Elite?

first_imgBy BEN HARRISMen’s Elite EightThe question on everybody’s lips is: “Will it be NSW Mets’ year?”The Mets have lost two matches in the two-year history of the Elite Eight series at the X-Blades National Touch League – the two grand finals.In 2011, the inaugural Elite Eight tournament, Mets were beaten 7-6 by NSW Scorpions in the grand final in the last few seconds of the match.The Mets were unbeaten in the tournament before losing the final.Last year, Mets were unbeaten when they reached the grand final against NSW Country Mavericks.Mets went down in the final few seconds of the match 5-4.Mets have a team full of big match international experience with Steve Roberts, Anthony Ziade, Nicholas Good, Ben Moylan, Scott Buckley, Robert Nakhla and Trent Touma lining up, so there should be no excuse this time.However, it won’t be an easy run as all the Elite Eight sides will be at their best with selection for the 2015 Touch World Cup up for grabs at this tournament.Scorpions have two-time Elite Eight Most Valuable Player in Sam Brisby.Brisby and Simon Lang are the leading touchdown scorers in Elite Eight with 16 and 17 touchdowns respectively.The Mavericks look strong on paper and the defending champions will be led by the likes of Dylan Hennessey and Dylan Thompson.Not to be forgotten, NSW Rebles, Queensland South Stingrays, Queensland Chiefs, Queensland Country Outlaws and The Alliance have all strong line-ups this year.Women’s Elite Eight        While the men’s NSW Mets team have fallen short when it comes to winning the big game at the X-Blades National Touch League, the Mets’ women’s side is the exact opposite.The Mets are two from two when it comes to Elite Eight, defeating NSW Country Mavericks 9-4 in 2011 and Queensland Chiefs 5-4 last year.They could make it a hat-trick this week especially with Paul Sfeir at the helm.The current Australian Men’s Open assistant coach brings plenty of knowledge and experience to the team.However, Australian Women’s Open captain Lousie Winchester won’t be playing this week, which does leave the door ajar for the other teams.Chiefs should have won last year but were swept away by Mets in the final.The Queensland side will be without 2013 Most Valuable player Emily Hennessey but they do have experienced campaigner Peta Rogerson.She will be backed up by plenty of other Australian representatives.In the race for the title will also be NSW Mavericks and NSW Scorpions, both reached the semi-finals in 2011 and 2013.Queensland Country Outlaws, Queensland South Stingrays, The Alliance and NSW Rebels should not be taken lightly.Related LinksWho will be the Elite?last_img read more

Brierty and Watego named Ron Hanson Medallists

first_imgAustralian Men’s Open player, Stuart Brierty and Australian Women’s Open representative, Marikki Watego have been named the Ron Hanson Medallists for the 2016 Trans Tasman Series. Brierty and Watego were named as Flag Bearers for the event in front of their Australian teammates at the contingent’s Jersey Presentation on Tuesday night. Brierty is a stalwart of the Australian Men’s Open team, first representing at the 2009 Trans Tasman Series and hasn’t missed a series since, competing in two World Cups (2011 and 2015) and five Trans Tasman Series events (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014). Brierty said despite feeling ‘slightly old’ he was blown away to be named as one of the Flag Bearers for the event. “It’s a great privilege and honour to receive that medal. To carry the flag representing our country, I can’t wait and really look forward to it. “When they started rattling off the years and the games, I knew it was probably either myself, Dylan (Hennessey) or Prowsey (Matt Prowse), as we are the only three that still remain from 2009. It did make me feel slightly old.”Watego is the most capped Australian Women’s Open player, having debuted at the 2012 Trans Tasman Series and hasn’t missed a series since, including playing in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Trans Tasman Series events and 2015 Touch World Cup. Watego said she was thrilled to be given the honour. “It’s incredible, I definitely wasn’t expecting it and to look back on past Ron Hanson Medallists and to be named alongside them now, it’s just a real big honour and I’m really thrilled to be given the opportunity,” Watego said. We’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all of the latest news, information and results from the 2016 Trans Tasman series on our website and social media channels, so you won’t miss any of the action: Be sure to use the hashtags #transtasman2016, #oneteam and #teamaustralia across all of our social media platforms and send in your messages of support for the teams on our social media channels.Related LinksRon Hanson Medallists Facebook: www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustraliaTwitter: www.twitter.com/touchfootyausInstagram: www.instagram.com/touchfootballaustraliaYouTube: www.youtube.com/touchfootballausSnapchat – search for ‘TFAofficial’last_img read more

I was hoping that this would be the chance for us to get that elusive third victory that would have lifted us to a much more comfortable place in the table.“We were unable to get it, and when that happens there is no other emotion that I can display other than the obvious one of feeling very sad that we couldn’t do it.”He added: “If you want to win games, then you have to take the chances that come your way. Watford must be comfortable in that respect because they hit the post twice and had one cleared off the line and chances to score their two goals. We perhaps weren’t as effective and only scored one goal, but that’s what football is.“There aren’t many games this year where I have thought we were outplayed or didn’t deserve to win, but there have been games like this where the game could so easily have gone either way and you get questions about regrets or frustrations. I don’t think I could have asked for a lot more from the players; we certainly didn’t lose the game because there wasn’t the desire to win it.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Roquan Smith was down to Georgia, Michigan, Texas A&M, and UCLA during his ceremony today. After having signs for the Wolverines and Aggies flipped over to indicate that the schools were out, Smith put on UCLA gloves under the table to reveal his commitment.Some UCLA fans may be concerned about the program’s ability to compete at the top of the Pac-12 without Brett Hundley, but Mora is proving that the Bruins should not be a flash in the pan.

Clemson’s Shaq Lawson Will Declare For NFL Draft: “I’m Ready For The Next Level”

first_imgShaq Lawson interviewed ahead of FSU game.shaq lawson clemson dalvin cook florida stateAfter losing superstars like Stephone Anthony, Vic Beasley, and Grady Jarrett from last year’s top Clemson defense, many expected a big slide for the Tigers on that side of the field. After finishing first nationally in total defense in 2014, Clemson repeated in the top 10, currently ranking seventh in that category. A big reason: defensive end Shaq Lawson, who has 55 total tackles, an eye-popping 22.5 tackles for loss, and 9.5 sacks on the year. After the upcoming College Football Playoff, though, he will be off to the pros. .@ClemsonFB DE Shaq Lawson: “I’m going to declare for the draft, “It’s time. I’m ready for the next level.

In my opinion, a draw would have been a fair result. Leverkusen shot four times and scored three goals.”The call against Lewandowski was marginal, while a similarly tight decision fell in Leverkusen’s favour when replays of the build-up to Alario’s 87th-minute goal were reviewed.”It’s difficult. If we make the 2-0, there’s nothing else happening,” Kovac added. “Things ran against us with the referee’s decisions.”The only positive is that Dortmund did not score three points, so not much has changed, even though seven points are a lot.”Dortmund had their former boss Peter Bosz to thank after Leverkusen produced a vibrant display.”I’m proud of this team,” he told reporters. “This was a very important win, also for our confidence, but it’s only three points.”We’re on a good path, but we still have a long way to go. We still need more points.”Maybe we didn’t play our best match but we still got the win. I think it was a great match for the fans.

(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Maurice Washington has taken the next step in his legal situation. The Nebraska running back went back to California to self-surrender, with a warrant out for his arrest.Washington is accused to possessing and sharing a sexual video of a minor. The video in question does not show Washington, per reports, but a girl he was allegedly seeking a relationship with.The charges against Washington include one felony and one misdemeanor. He has been in Nebraska for spring practice, but has been participating on a limited basis.As of yesterday, Maurice Washington was expected back in Nebraska last night, per Scott Frost.From the Omaha World-Herald:Washington was not at Monday’s Husker football practice, and coach Scott Frost said Washington was in California to get “processed.” Frost said he expected Washington to return to Lincoln on Monday night.“Working through his lawyer, I know he wanted to get out there and surrender and satisfy the warrant as quickly as he could,” Frost said. “They had it worked out for today, so Maurice flew out to California (Sunday) night.”Per the report, Washington allegedly sent the girl the video that she appeared in as a minor, after she rebuffed his advances.This whole situation is obviously far from over, given the gravity of the charges against Washington.last_img read more

The six include Georgia, Louisville, Purdue, Kentucky, Ohio State and Michigan.Coming out of the Christian Academy Of Louisville, Young is a four-star prospect.

It would be surprising if Higgins isn’t good to go by the time summer camp breaks in a few months.Clemson will need him early on. September may be the Tigers’ most difficult month of the season, with a game against Texas A&M immediately followed by a trip to the Carrier Dome to face a pesky Syracuse team back-to-back in Weeks 2 and 3.Things start with the first ever game on the ACC Network against a new-look Georgia Tech squad on August 29.

Trevor Lawrence returns for his sophomore year at quarterback, and will have a full compliment of weapons around him.Travis Etienne is probably the most notable skill position player for Clemson. The Tigers star is a potential Heisman candidate after an incredible sophomore year.The wide receivers are among the best in college football as well. Justyn Ross had 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns as a freshman, while Tee Higgins went for 936 and 12 scores.It doesn’t sound like a major concern, but Clemson star Tee Higgins was spotted in a walking boot at a recent Clemson football event.Dabo Swinney hosted a football camp on Tuesday, which Higgins helped out at.

Colin Cowherd Reveals Bold Prediction For Michigan This Season

(Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images)With the college football season on the horizon, Colin Cowherd revealed his predictions for several teams from Power Five programs. The FS1 radio host unveiled which teams could disappoint and which might surprise everyone.Cowherd is usually supportive of the Michigan Wolverines, and his stance on the football program hasn’t changed heading into next season.Michigan has a ton of talent returning to Ann Arbor this fall, such as Shea Patterson, Nico Collins and Khaleke Hudson. Combine this experienced group with Jim Harbaugh and that should create a winning formula.Even though Michigan has dealt with its share of shortcomings, Cowherd thinks this upcoming season will be different. He’ll be taking the over on the team’s win total projection, which is already pretty high to begin with. “I’m gonna take Michigan over 9.5 wins,” Cowherd said. “Just a lot of guaranteed wins against the bottom and middle of the Big Ten. I don’t think they’re a national championship winning team, but they may end up in the Playoff because of their returners, their quarterback and their schedule.”Here is the full segment from The Herd: It’s time for @ColinCowherd’s 🔒s for the 2019 college football season!🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/p76cT399oH— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) July 10, 2019Taking the over on Michigan’s win total would put them to at least a 10-2 record.Another advantage for the Wolverines is that their toughest games on the schedule take place at home. This includes their annual clash with the Ohio State Buckeyes.Do you think Michigan wins 10 or more games?last_img read more
