In its 2017 final results statement it described Bet90 as the “main driver” for growth in 2018, “as it continues to grow and expand into new markets”.The Veltyco spokesperson told iGamingBusiness.com: “The German market continues to be important to Veltyco and we are ideally positioned in the market through our own sports book brand Bet90 as well as through a marketing contract with Betsafe (Betsson Group).“We will however continue to look at acquisitions in the regulated markets, at the right price.”The news at the end of May that Veltyco would acquire Marsovia Holding from Altair Entertainment would certainly appear to back up suggestions that M&A opportunities are certainly not off the table.Moreover, the company last month unveiled significant growth in turnover and earnings for 2017.Back in February, Veltyco said it hoped to take BTTY beyond its existing markets in Germany and Austria.At the time it said in a statement: “The board of Veltyco believes that the proposed acquisition, if concluded, represents an exciting opportunity for Veltyco to grow BTTY, both in Germany and Austria and in to new territories, by using Veltyco’s expertise in online marketing, in conjunction with its experience in the online gaming industry.” Email Address
Italy points difference at -101 after three rounds of Six NationsAfter just three rounds of the 2021 Six Nations, Italy sit rock bottom of the table with a terrifying points difference of -101. Italy lost 48-10 to Ireland in Rome in the third round, conceding six tries in the process.Italy lost in the first round against France 50-10 and in the second round to England, 41-18. The latest loss, to Ireland at home, means that Italy have now lost 30 Six Nations matches in a row.Related: Social media reacts to the Iain Hederson try that wasn’t against ItalyBack in 2017, Italy finished their Six Nations campaign with a dismal points difference of -151. Could they finish this season’s run with a worse points difference?In the last two rounds of the 2021 Six Nations, Italy will face Wales in Rome and then in their last clash of the campaign they will face Scotland at Murrayfield (where the Azzurri last won a Six Nations match, all the way back in 2015).

Renewing battle: Scotland and France in action during their previous clash last autumn (AFP/Getty) What have the coaches said?Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend: “We feel we’re capable of going there and getting a result. We need to win by a few points (five) to get to third and potentially get to second (eight). But that’s what we’re gunning towards.“We’ve shown that we can play very well away from home and if we do deliver an 80-minute performance we’ll be more than just competitive. What are the line-ups?France: Brice Dulin; Damian Penaud, Virimi Vakatawa, Arthur Vincent, Gaël Fickou; Romain Ntamack, Antoine Dupont; Cyril Baille, Julien Marchand, Mohamed Haouas, Bernard Le Roux, Swan Rebbadj, Anthony Jelonch, Charles Ollivon (capt), Gregory Alldritt.Replacements: 16 Camille Chat, 17 Jean-Baptiste Gros, 18 Uini Atonio, 19 Romain Taofifenua, 20 Dylan Cretin, 21 Baptiste Serin, 22 Anthony Bouthier, 23 Teddy Thomas.Scotland: Stuart Hogg (capt); Darcy Graham, Chris Harris, Sam Johnson, Duhan van der Merwe; Finn Russell, Ali Price; Rory Sutherland, George Turner, Zander Fagerson, Sam Skinner, Grant Gilchrist, Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson, Nick Haining.Replacements: 16 Dave Cherry, 17 Oli Kebble, 18 Simon Berghan, 19 Alex Craig, 20 Ryan Wilson, 21 Scott Steele, 22 Adam Hastings, 23 Huw Jones. “We’ve played France a couple of times in the last 12 months, they’ve been close games. We didn’t fire many shots against them in November, but it was right down to the last minute.“We hadn’t won in London in 38 years and hadn’t won in Wales in 18 years. Our players can take a lot of confidence from those two performances. This is an opportunity more than any other when there’s no crowd in the stadium.”On the late call-up for Ryan Wilson: “We were able to call on Ryan at short notice given Glasgow Warriors had already conducted two Covid tests this week, which meant he was safe to travel and join up with the squad. Given Ryan’s Test-match experience and his form this season, we believe he will grab his opportunity on his return to the squad.”Scotland defence coach Steve Tandy: “A win would be huge. We’ve been knocking off little bits of history, like winning in Wales and at Twickenham, so this would be another step in the right direction for the group.”Scotland captain Stuart Hogg: “A lot has been said that’s beginning to hack me off. The fact they’ve got to get 21 points. We read a quote from one of their players (Charles Ollivon) saying that they’ve got a trophy to win. As a proud Scotsman, that hurt me a lot.“The ongoing thing is that a lot of stuff is written about us that often concentrates on opposition rather than ourselves. We will let our rugby do the talking.“We win by eight points, and we finish the highest we’ve ever finished in a Six Nations. That’s the motivation for us. It’s going to be one hell of a challenge, an open game of rugby, and we’re really, really excited for it.” TAGS: Highlight What of the prospects? The smart money, you feel, is on a French win but not on the necessary scale to deny Wales the title. Les Bleus can be formidable when they get a head of steam up but Scotland are made of sterner stuff these days. They don’t look like a side that are about to roll over.That was very much the case in last year’s Six Nations, when Scotland ended France’s Grand Slam bid with a 28-17 win at Murrayfield. Maitland scored two of their tries that day in a match skewed by a first-half red card for Mohamed Haouas for punching Ritchie.The countries met at the same venue in the Autumn Nations Cup, France winning 22-15 to secure their first success in Edinburgh since 2014.Heated: Mohamed Haouas grapples with Jamie Ritchie before throwing his infamous punch (Getty)What’s the big team news?With a short turnaround, both sides ring the changes. Fly-half Matthieu Jalibert incurred a head injury last week and is replaced by Romain Ntamack, who came on against Wales. Ntamack was the top scorer in last year’s championship.Paul Willemse begins a two-match ban after being sent off for making contact with the eye of Welsh prop Wyn Jones. With fellow lock Romain Taofifenua dropping to the bench, Bernard Le Roux and Toulon’s Swan Rebbadj – making his first Test start – comprise the engine room.Flanker Anthony Jelonch and centre Arthur Vincent are also recalled, in place of Dylan Cretin and wing Teddy Thomas. Gaël Fickou moves from inside-centre to the wing to accommodate Vincent, while Damian Penaud switches flanks.DID YOU KNOW? Tonight’s victors will take possession of the Auld Alliance Trophy, which commemorates the 22 French and 30 Scottish internationals killed during the First World War. It was created in 2018 by trophy makers Thomas Lyte Scotland were forced to make a change to their selected side as No 8 Matt Fagerson dropped out after sustaining an ankle injury in training on Wednesday. Nick Haining comes into the XV and Ryan Wilson joins the bench.That and Maitland’s absence are just two of the rejigs for Scotland. Like France, they welcome back a star No 10, Finn Russell returning following his concussion against Ireland in round four. Skipper Hogg returns to full-back having stood in at ten against Italy.Scrum-half Price, centre Harris and hooker George Turner all return to the starting XV. Scott Steele, Huw Jones and Dave Cherry – who scored a double against the Azzurri – must settle for replacement roles. Alongside them will be Adam Hastings, involved for the first time this year following injury and suspension. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Any interesting statistics?France have won 17 of their 21 Six Nations matches against Scotland. All four defeats have been away from home, in 2006, 2016, 2018 and 2020The two scrum-halves for this match, Antoine Dupont and Ali Price, have the most try assists in the tournament, with four and three respectivelyFrance’s penchant for offloading is clear: Dupont (seven), Gregory Alldritt and Julien Marchand (both five) lead the way in the championship, alongside Stuart Hogg (six)Duhan van der Merwe and Dupont both need one try to tie with Anthony Watson and Louis Rees-Zammit as top try-scorer (on four). Or two to take that accolade outrightVan der Merwe has made 29 tackle breaks in the tournament – a dozen more than the next-best in the list, Hogg and Brice DulinBleus captain Charles Ollivon has the most lineout wins, with 18Ryan Wilson will win his 50th Scotland cap if summoned from the replacements benchScotland have had more possession (59%) than any other side in this Six Nations. France (45%) have had the lowest share of possessionScotland have the best tackle success rate (93%), ahead of second-best France (89%) Six Nations France v Scotland PreviewSo, we arrive at the climax to this madcap Guinness Six Nations championship. France and Scotland were meant to have met in late February but now bring the curtain down on a tournament with a galaxy of twists and turns.Let’s start with the maths. France’s last-gasp win against Wales last weekend means they can clinch their first Six Nations title since 2010. To do that, they must beat Scotland by at least 21 points and score at least four tries. Or, in a similar but far less likely scenario, they must win by 20 points and score at least six tries.Failure to do either would give Wales the championship that they came so agonisingly close to securing at Stade de France last Saturday night.Double hit: Antoine Dupont is collared by two Welshmen during France’s win last Saturday (Getty)Scotland have no title to play for but could finish runners-up for the first time since the tournament was expanded to six teams in 2000. That is quite an incentive. To achieve that, they must overcome a Paris hoodoo because it’s 22 years since they won in the French capital.Who can forget that astonishing spring day in 1999 when Scotland scored five tries in 27 first-half minutes? Wales’ defeat of England the next day gave the Scots the last-ever Five Nations title. Two decades on, all of Wales is hoping Scotland will return the favour.What do Scotland require to get second place? To win with a try bonus point while restricting France to one bonus point. Or to win by at least eight points whilst denying France a bean.Further motivation for the Scots comes in the shape of Lions squad places, in the week that the Lions board announced their intention to fulfil the existing tour schedule.Related content: Lions commit to South Africa tourIf Stuart Hogg is arguably the only Scot 100% nailed on to be picked by Warren Gatland, there are a host of others in the ’near certainty’ or ‘decent shout’ bracket. Hamish Watson and Finn Russell are obvious ones, but what of Rory Sutherland, Ali Price, Jamie Ritchie, Chris Harris, Huw Jones and Duhan van der Merwe? We could go on.Leap year: Chris Harris jumps over an Italian defender whilst supporting Huw Jones last weekend (Getty)Further subplots. Because this game, postponed from February due to a Covid outbreak in the French camp, falls outside the international window, Gregor Townsend can only select five English-based players. Thus, Saracens’ Sean Maitland, a 53-cap regular, misses out, along with a string of squad players. Exeter’s Jonny Gray wasn’t available because of a hand injury.Townsend declared himself satisfied with the arrangement, mainly because he had feared he would have no English-based players at all.

Rare Country presented its first Humanitarian Award to country music legend, Charlie Daniels last weekend. According to Rare Country, “This award honors Charlie as he has graciously given his time and support towards uplifting the human spirit through his work assisting veterans via his organization, Journey Home Project.”A sell-out event, the Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam hit a capacity of 15,784 patrons at Bridgestone Arena November 30th. It was a star-studded show and a portion of the proceeds benefitting The Journey Home Project. The event featured guests 3 Doors Down, Luke Bryan, Kid Rock, Larry The Cable Guy, Chris Stapleton and Travis Tritt with the Charlie Daniels Band for another historic jam. The jam featured a variety of the artists singing standards like “Can’t You See” and “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”Charlie Daniels was surprised with the Rare Country Humanitarian of the Year Award by Randy Travis and Lt. General Keith Huber before playing his mega-hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” to the sold out crowd.“Looking back over my 50 plus year career, this is among the top five shows I have ever done in my entire life, Volunteer Jam 2016,” said Charlie Daniels of the momentous occasion.Since 1974, Daniels has commissioned his musical friends and peers to come together on a “volunteer” basis to hang out, “jam” together, and entertain crowds in an unconventional, laid-back fashion unknown to any other concert event — all while dedicating concert proceeds to worthy causes. This year’s event featured extra special “jam” sessions with some of Charlie’s most prolific friends who celebrated the Country Music Hall of Famer, his birthday, and his many accomplishments.See what Luke Bryan had to say backstage just before the Volunteer Jam started.A portion of the proceeds from the night went to The Journey Home Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager, David Corlew, to help Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

Facebook Linkedin Linkedin Brooke Morrissyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brooke-morrissy/ ReddIt printThree students in the BNSF Neeley Leadership Program are offering prospective students a one-on-one guided tour of TCU’s campus through Frog Shadow, a new student-led organization.Frog Shadow was created to help give high school students a more personalized, transparent tour of TCU.Taven Sparks, a junior management and finance double major, is one of the three juniors who started the project.“We wanted to help ease high school students into college transition… by creating a one-on-one mentorship program where high school students can come to TCU’s campus and shadow one of our mentors and have the opportunity to see a transparent view of what TCU really is,” Sparks said.Co-founder Kamryn Conway said the program aims to make the process of deciding on a college easier. High school seniors are paired with a tour guide based on hometowns, majors and interests. Guides act as mentors and stay in touch with the prospective students.This semester, Frog Shadow will invite prospective students who were awarded the Dean’s Scholarship, worth $18,000 per year, to participate. During the two-and-a-half-hour tour, the high school seniors will get sit in on college classes.“The shadow mentor will take them on the customized one-on-one program throughout campus, showing them what it’s like to be a student on campus,d” said Conway, a marketing and finance with real estate double major.The idea for Frog Shadow came from the Neeley Leadership Program’s requirement for juniors to create a year-long impact project.“The project ends in April, but we are excited to oversee this program through our graduation in 2017,” Sparks said. “And [we’re] excited for our [executive] team in the future to continue to enhance the program and continue for this to grow and spread and be able to impact many potential students.”Frog Shadow differs from other guided campus tours, such as those offered by Student Foundations and Ambassadors, because it is a one-on-one tour instead of a group tour, Sparks said. More students may feel comfortable asking questions one-on-one, Sparks said.Conway said she hopes that in the future, Frog Shadow will give tours to all high school students, not just Dean’s Scholars.“Come 10 years down the road, our hope is that we come back here and see this program flourishing,” Conway said.Sparks said more than 175 TCU students have applied for the program.“It’s not to get something on their resume, it’s because they wish they had something like that,” said Connor Vaccaro, a junior entrepreneurial management major.Applications to be a Frog Shadow mentor and guide are closed for the spring, but will be available in the fall. To apply, you must be at least second-semester freshman.

That’s calorie restriction.”Wellness Program Manager David Upton said losing weight isn’t just about restricting calories though, you have to do exercise too.“If you just restrict calories and no exercise, about one third of what you lose will come from muscle tissue,” Upton said. “In all my years of practice I’ve never had anyone come in and say, ‘I need to lose about 25 pounds of muscle.’”Senior Cami Fannin said she tries to follow this idea in her life.“Fitness is a lifestyle,” Fannis said. “You’re not just dieting. You’re not just working out.”Fannin said she she likes to attend at least one class a day at the rec center.“It’s such a great experience,” Fannin said. “You’re with your friends, you’re doing it together. I take bar with a lot of my friends and it hurts so much but we just look at each other and we just start laughing because it’s like, ‘Oh my god! We can get through the pain you’re almost there.’”Upton said those “accountability partners” are one of the big benefits of these group workout classes.“People that are going to be there on the morning you know you don’t want to get up and go, then those are the times it’s good to be part of something,” Upton said. “That’s where the benefit comes from.” Many students are hitting the gym before they hit the beach for spring break.
