first_imgThursday Aug 27, 2015 Stuart Lancaster on England’s Rugby World 2015 Cup Squad England announced their 2015 Rugby World Cup squad today, with some unlucky to miss out, but still in the running in terms of a wider training group should injuries occur. Hear directly from Stuart Lancaster above as he talks about his selections. The 31-strong group of 17 forwards and 14 backs – drawn from eight Premiership clubs – will open their campaign against Fiji at Twickenham Stadium on September 18.England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “It’s really positive that we have such depth and options to choose from. Selection wasn’t easy and it is tough to leave anyone out but it’s important to stress that the players not in this group are still part of our wider squad and could come in at any point.  “After 10 weeks in camp we have made our final selection of players and we believe we have a great group to take us into the tournament. With three weeks to go before we play Fiji we believe we are in good shape as we head into next Saturday’s game against Ireland.”England’s Rugby World Cup squad:                                                                                                  PropsKieran Brookes (Northampton Saints, 10 caps) Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers, 51 caps) Joe Marler (Harlequins, 32 caps) Mako Vunipola (Saracens, 22 caps)  David Wilson (Bath Rugby, 43 caps) HookersJamie George (Saracens, 1 cap)  Rob Webber (Bath Rugby, 13 caps)  Tom Youngs (Leicester Tigers, 23 caps) Second rowsGeorge Kruis (Saracens, 8 caps)  Joe Launchbury (Wasps, 23 caps) Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints, 39 caps) Geoff Parling (Exeter Chiefs, 24 caps) Back rowsJames Haskell (Wasps, 60 caps) Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby, 28 caps) Chris Robshaw (capt, Harlequins, 38 caps)  Billy Vunipola (Saracens, 18 caps) Tom Wood (Northampton Saints, 37 caps) Scrum halvesDanny Care (Harlequins, 52 caps)  Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens, 22 caps) Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers, 48 caps)  Fly halvesOwen Farrell (Saracens, 30 caps) George Ford (Bath Rugby, 12 caps) CentresBrad Barritt (Saracens, 22 caps) Sam Burgess (Bath Rugby, 1 cap) Jonathan Joseph (Bath Rugby, 12 caps) Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs, 1 cap) Back threeMike Brown (Harlequins, 38 caps)  Alex Goode (Saracens, 18 caps)  Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby, 15 caps) Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs, 9 caps)  Anthony Watson (Bath Rugby, 10 caps)ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby , Rugby World Cup Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Students bid to dine with campus celebrities

first_imgMore than 25 Notre Dame celebrities are on the menu tonight at Breen-Phillips Hall’s 29th annual Meal Auction, where students can place bids for a chance to dine with illustrious campus figures such as Irish football coach Brian Kelly or basketball coach Mike Brey, among others. One of the hall’s signature events, the live and silent auctions will benefit Meals on Wheels, a charity with which Breen-Phillips has had a long relationship, hall president Allison Behrndt and auction coordinator Jaclyn Winkel said. “In [Breen-Phillips], we’re always talking about community and fostering that sense in our dorm,” Winkel said. “Meals on Wheels reaches out to community members who might otherwise be forgotten, so that same sense is there.” Winkel said a wide array of prominent campus figures will participate as auction prizes, including student body president-elect and vice president-elect Alex Coccia and Nancy Joyce, finance professor Carl Ackermann and psychology professor Anre Venter, as well as members of the Notre Dame men’s basketball and track and field teams. “Basically, we’ve contacted a bunch of campus celebrities and cool professors, and they agreed to have a meal with the highest bidder,” Winkel said. “People can come and bid per plate, and if you win you get to go out to dinner or have a home-cooked meal with the person.” Breen-Phillips president Allison Behrndt said bidders can expect great experiences with all the “menu items” but recommended that Irish athletic fans consider the offers from Kelly and Brey. “Coach Kelly always does a meal with the football staff, and he usually gives the people who win a bunch of issue gear and autographed items,” Behrndt said. “Brey also sets up a meal, and that’s always popular.” Winkel said the dinner with Kelly typically raises the most money of all the individual auction items. “Sometimes, people pay upwards of $100 for Kelly,” she said. “He usually takes about two or three people, and last year he gave them a tour of the locker room, too.” With far more bidders than prizes, students bid per plate so groups can share the cost of a ticket item, Winkel said, and auction participants may choose how many people they will take and where they will eat. “A few guys from the baseball team said they’d take people to Brothers [Bar and Grill], and some basketball players are doing a meal at McAlister’s [Deli],” Winkel said. “Professor Venter is taking six to eight people for a home-cooked South African dinner at his house, so there are a lot of different choices.” Behrndt said the event is a great way for students to connect with high-profile campus figures in a relaxed, personal setting. “I think the best aspect [of the auction] is giving people the opportunity to interact with people they normally wouldn’t be able to meet, like the coaches,” Behrndt said. “It’s great that students can share a more intimate meal with their professors, which they probably wouldn’t have the chance to do otherwise.” The auction committee decided to host the event in the Burger King lounge to attract more traffic from passersby and increase student awareness of the cause it supports, Winkel and Behrndt said. “We made a few changes to the menu and location basically to encourage greater audience participation and to make it more of a campus-wide event,” Behrndt said. Winkel said students are encouraged to drop by and bid spontaneously on the people that pique their interest. Gift baskets and restaurant gift cards will be offered during the silent auction in the Sorin Room of LaFortune Student Center from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. The live auction will occupy the Burger King lounge in LaFortune tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Contact Ann Marie Jakubowski at [email protected]last_img read more

The Dodgers Have A Real Chance To Break The AllTime Wins Record

Will the Dodgers break the all-time wins record?Current record is 116 wins WINSAT LEAST THIS MANY WINSEXACTLY THIS MANY WINS 11073.48.1 Elo still doesn’t quite think the Dodgers are the greatest team of all-time. Their 1608 Elo rating (through Sunday’s 8-0 rout of the New York Mets) only ranks sixth-best for a team through 111 games since 1901, trailing the 1944 St. Louis Cardinals, 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates, and the 1938, 1939 and 1998 New York Yankees. But if L.A. does end up smashing the wins record, they’ll be on the short list of greatest teams ever — particularly if they can finally get over the hump in the playoffs.Check out our latest MLB predictions. 10886.05.7 1195.12.2 11347.19.6 10980.36.9 11256.39.3 10596.2%2.2% 11165.49.0 10694.03.0 Move over, 2015-16 Golden State Warriors: There’s a new team chasing a sport’s all-time single-season wins record. The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on a tear — 43 wins in 50 games since June 9, the best 50-game stretch in MLB history — and they now stand at 79-32, which puts the team in a position to win more games than the 2001 Seattle Mariners and 1906 Chicago Cubs, who each won 116 games, the most ever by a baseball team in a season.According to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo model, which simulates the remainder of the season using power ratings and each team’s probability of winning every game, the Dodgers are on pace to win 112 games. But that’s just their average outcome — in some simulations they win more, and in some they win less. In a shade over 20 percent of our simulations, they win at least 116 games, which would tie the all-time mark. And 13.5 percent of the time, they finish the season with at least 117 victories, setting a new single-season record for greatness. 11437.49.4 10791.05.0 11620.16.5 11713.55.1 11528.07.9 1188.53.4 CHANCE DODGERS FINISH WITH… 1202.91.4 read more
