first_imgMonday Oct 2, 2017 New Zealand seal Rugby Championship title with strong first half vs Argentina The All Blacks scored five tries to one to beat Argentina 36-10, and therefore retain the Rugby Championship title, in Buenos Aires on Saturday. The title was secured before kickoff, after South Africa and Australia drew in Bloemfontein. Their dominant form in this year’s tournament continued as they moved 11 points clear on the table, well ahead of second placed South Africa (13 points) who they face in Cape Town this coming weekend.Five wins from five matches was always going to result in another title, but the manner in which they’ve done it has been most impressive. This weekend was no different as they stormed out to a 29-3 halftime lead against Argentina, scoring four first half tries. The second half wasn’t as fluid though, not scoring a point right up until the death, when David Havili crossed with time up.“It was certainly what we expected in that first half but we managed four tries so I suppose we got up a few points,” said skipper Kieran Read, who scored two tries but was also yellow carded. “You’ve got to credit the boys’ character, we defended pretty well and I guess two yellow cards didn’t help us. But we really kept them out. We had to defend our hearts out and I’m really proud of the lads there.“It was good for the less experienced boys in the team to sample playing in one of the toughest atmospheres in world rugby. David [Havili] produced some special touches when he came on and his try rounded off a special day for him.“Overall, it was a performance to be proud of and we now look forward to facing the Springboks in Cape Town,” Read added.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_img New Delhi: There is good news on the anvil for the Indian cricket board’s affiliated state units as their apex council composition is likely to be increased to 19 members, compared to the 9-member team of the BCCI. With around 30 out of 36 units becoming Lodha Compliant, it is learnt that majority of them have come on board to build consensus about a few modifications that Amicus Curiae PS Narsimha is expected to submit to the Supreme Court on Thursday.During their meeting with the Amicus, most of the BCCI affiliated units had expressed their “practical difficulty” on having an apex council, which is a “mirror image” of the BCCI’s governing body.As per the Lodha Committee recommendation, the BCCI apex council will comprise nine members — the president, vice president, secretary, joint secretary, treasurer, two players’ representative (male and female), CAG representative, one member from state unit. However, with most state units having different voter composition, the contentious issue is now on the verge of being sorted.”The learned Amicus has had discussions with Committee of Administrators (CoA) as well as majority of the affiliated units. It seems at least 85 percent (30 out of 36) units which are fully compliant are on board that 19 is a good number for apex council of state units,” a senior BCCI official privy to state unit’s meeting with the Amicus told PTI. BCCI State Units likely to be allowed 19-member apex council.BCCI has a 9-member apex council team.30 out of 36 units becoming Lodha Compliant. highlights He said that advocate Narsimha was very “co-operative” and acknowledged that apex council is an issue.”The CoA and the Amicus agree that states units are the ones promoting the game in the country. An association like DDCA which constitutes individual members has a different fabric compared to Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) which has institutional voting. So it couldn’t have been a 9 member Apex Council,” the official said.It is learnt that Karnataka wanted it to be 26 but have now come around and agreed to the proposed 19 (16 elected plus two players’ representative and one CAG representative).It is learnt that units like Vidarbha Cricket Association, which was one of the earliest to adopt new constitution, will get a chance to change the composition of its apex council.”Vidarbha’s apex council has nine members and they have the provision of increasing it to 19 now,” the official said.Most of the state units have requested the Amicus to “speed up the election  process” so that a democratically elected body can take over.It was learnt that even Tamil Nadu Cricket Association is “substantially compliant” even though it has a few persisting issues.”The discussion between Amicus and Tamil Nadu CA was positive. TNCA has a few issues primarily related to age cap and tenure of office bearers. However the Amicus has told them that if the August 9, 2018 judgement by the CJI bench is changed, Lodha recommendation will collapse.”It was learnt that even Haryana CA, which has been perceived as obstructionist among state units, has also been forthcoming in its only meeting with the Amicus.”Haryana CA had one meeting with the Amicus and it went off well. There was a second meeting that was supposed to take place but didn’t happen. However they have been forthcoming in their views and told the Amicus that they will get back after consultation with their governing body members,” the official said.
