Meet Matthew Morgan, the next Wales fly-half

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS He’s small in stature but Webster says: “He’s powerful. I had no fears about putting him in the first team. He’s got to improve his kicking and game management but when a boy can run like that you don’t care.”Born in Reading, Morgan moved to Wales when he was eight. His brother Tom is a Swansea back-row and his family have helped to keep him grounded. Now the Ospreys and Swansea are working together to maximise his potential. Katie Field meets exciting young Ospreys fly-half Matthew Morgan.There’s a feeling in some rugby circles that young players have the natural flair coached out of them, but Swansea coach Richard Webster is determined not to let that happen to outside-half Matthew Morgan.“He just wants to run with a rugby ball and he doesn’t know anything else. He’s a breath of fresh air,” says the former Wales flanker.Morgan, 18, is in his first season with Swansea. Having learned his rugby at Bridgend Athletic, Brynteg Comp and Pencoed College, he made such an impression in his first month with the All Whites that he won the Principality Premiership Player of the Month award and was picked to play for the Ospreys in the LV= Cup victory over Leicester.Webster noticed the former Wales U18s player when he turned out for Bridgend in the last month of last season, helping to save them from relegation from Swalec League One East. The youngster nearly turned down that opportunity – “It was the weekend of my 18th birthday and I had been planning a weekend off,” laughs Morgan.

Summer tours: Italy and Scotland tread new ground in Singapore

first_imgSatay on Saturday? Singapore has a reputation for fantastic food, whether fine dining or street stalls“This is a precursor of many more world-class matches to come. As we go into 2019, when Japan hosts the 2019 Rugby World Cup, there will certainly be more teams wanting to come and play here. We already have excellent sporting infrastructure in the form of the National Stadium in the Sports Hub, and once international teams and players start coming here to play, Singapore gets more recognition as a hub for rugby in Asia.”For tickets to the historic Italy v Scotland match, click here. Gregor Townsend’s new journey starts in the Lion City as Italy and Scotland do battle in a fixture set to pave the way for other Tier One nations in South-East Asia Advertising featureYou don’t need an excuse to visit Singapore but here’s a great one anyway – the historic Italy v Scotland Test match that takes place there on Saturday 10 June.The European nations will contest the first Tier One International to be played in the Lion City and their meeting represents a significant landmark for the South-East Asian country.Talks to stage a southern v northern hemisphere Test in Singapore later this year are already underway and there’s little doubt that Italy and Scotland will be the first of many top-flight international sides to do battle in the magnificent three-year-old National Stadium, with its world-beating retractable dome.Special venue: the National Stadium has already staged Super Rugby and World Series Sevens (SGH)Strong Scottish The match has special meaning for Scotland, marking as it does the start of Gregor Townsend’s reign as national coach. And 20 years after starring for the victorious Lions in South Africa, the coach will have almost a full set of players to choose from because only three Scots have made this year’s Lions party.Injuries mean Richie Gray and Sean Maitland will also be absent but the core of the squad that won three of their five Six Nations matches will be on duty, including Finn Russell, Jonny Gray and Hamish Watson – three men many felt deserved to be wearing Lions’ red in New Zealand.Tighthead WP Nel, who would surely have been a Lion barring a season-long neck injury, and No 8 Josh Strauss, recovered from a kidney injury, also feature in a squad led by John Barclay.Box seat: Ali Price is set to start at No 9 in the absence of Lions tourist Greig Laidlaw (SNS Group/SRU)“It’s exciting to be able to play in a unique stadium and the fact that it’ll be Scotland’s first International there will make for a great occasion,” says Townsend.“I’ve not been to Singapore before but I know a number of players are looking forward to not just the stadium but the island as a whole, having heard so many good things about it.“Playing Italy in Singapore will be a very different prospect from taking them on in Edinburgh or Rome, and it will be a challenge for both teams to adapt to the new surroundings.“Italy are a team we know well and we can expect it to be a very competitive match. It will provide us with the ideal opportunity to get our game into place on the way to playing Australia and Fiji as part of our summer tour.”Italian opportunityConor O’Shea’s Italy had a torrid Six Nations but they won Tests in USA and Canada last June and famously downed the Springboks in November. They have beaten Scotland eight times in 27 meetings, most recently at Murrayfield in 2015, and will not be fazed by facing the world’s fifth-best team, according to the current world rankings.Letting off steam: Italy fans haven’t had too much to cheer about in 2017 but remain optimistic (FIR)O’Shea recently likened the Azzurri to Glasgow Warriors, the team Townsend coached to the Guinness Pro12 title before taking the Scotland reins.“Twenty years ago, Glasgow were losing by 80 points, ten years ago one Scottish franchise went bust and Glasgow and Edinburgh were going nowhere,” he told ESPN. “But come 2017, both Glasgow and Edinburgh were into European quarter-finals and Scotland are looking better. It takes time.” Try threat: Scotland wing Tim Visser takes on Italy during this year’s Six Nations (SNS Group/SRU) center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS As last year, O’Shea has chosen to rest veteran players like Sergio Parisse for a tour that also includes Tests in Fiji and Australia in the following fortnight. New Zealand referee Paul Williams will take charge of both the Singapore match and the one in Suva on 17 June.Pipped in Tokyo: Italy last toured in Asia three years ago, when they succumbed 26-23 to Japan (FIR)“We can’t wait to take the field in Singapore, which is a new and thrilling challenge for Italy in the Test arena,” said O’Shea of what is a designated home fixture for the Azzurri. “There is a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes to prepare this group for the challenges ahead. We are also making changes within our system which we feel will benefit Italian rugby both in the short and long term, but no one is under any illusions about the task ahead.“The goal for this group of players on tour is to ensure we execute and start taking the opportunities that we have undoubtedly had. Once we do that, and play with the intensity and focus that we aspire to, we will become the team that we and our supporters desire.”Busy scheduleThe clash is part of a wonderful array of Test-match action in June. Ireland are also in Asia as they play a two-Test series against Japan, while there are RWC 2019 qualifiers in the Americas and Oceania. In fact, Pacific Island teams play six Tier One Tests. Fiji take on the Wallabies as well as Scotland and Italy, Samoa tackle Wales and New Zealand, and Tonga also get a crack at the Welsh.“There has been a massive step up in international competition since the last Rugby World Cup,” says World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont, “and this Test window will allow for some very interesting matches.”Hot destinationSingapore will be at the heart of that and those fans flying in to see the Italy-Scotland match will be keen to make the most of a city that Lonely Planet described as one of the world’s hot-list destinations.Few visitors leave without seeing the award-winning, 101-hectare Gardens by the Bay that features space-age bio-domes, high-tech Supertrees and a Cloud Forest complete with a waterfall. A Skyway connects two of the Supertrees, giving breathtaking views of the gardens, city and South China City.Full bloom: fans coming for the rugby can take in stunning sights like Gardens by the Bay (TILT Pte)Indulgence of a different kind will be another priority as Singapore’s street food is the pride of the city. Head to the Amoy Food Centre to find local fare at stalls such as A Noodle Story, Famous Crispy Curry Puff and Hong Kee Beef Noodle and Hoo Kee Rice Dumpling.Nearby is the Maxwell Food Centre with its celebrated Tian Tian Hainanese chicken rice.You can find out more about the sights of Singapore here, but as Scotland and Italy prepare for their third encounter on neutral soil – Scotland won 18-16 in Saint Etienne (2007) and 30-29 in Pretoria (2013) – the last word goes to Low Teo Ping, chairman of Rugby Singapore.“We have been hosting Super Rugby matches and the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens, so we are well prepared to organise an event of this stature,” he says.last_img read more

Munster deliver knockout blow to Treviso

first_imgFriday Jan 22, 2010 Munster deliver knockout blow to Treviso Munster scored six tries as they beat Treviso 44-7 in clinical fashion at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo. The bonus-point win puts them in pole position to finish top of Pool One in their Heineken Cup campaign.It was a Munster-blitz as the visitors ran the Italian champions all over the park, scoring tries through Keith Earls, Denis Hurley, Donncha OCallaghan, Paul Warwick, and Donnacha Ryan. Ronan OGara added 12 points of his own with the boot.Alessandro Zanni scored an intercept try for Treviso by it was stark consolation in a match that saw them totally outplayed, and eliminated from the competition.The result has set up what should be a fiercely contested match with second place Northampton Saints, as the two sides meet tonight in Limerick.Munster will be favourites at home, but Saints coach Jim Mallinder says his side will travel with confidence and self belief in the hope of coming out on top.“Many of their players are familiar faces from their exploits for Munster, Ireland and the Lions,” said Mallinder.“But when the whistle blows it is just 15 men against 15, and if we play to our potential and stick to our game-plan there is no reason why we can’t win.“We are going in on the back of a good run – I think we are unbeaten in nine or 10 games – and that is very encouraging. But we also know it is going to be very, very tough – Munster are playing very well.“However, so are we and we will take a lot of confidence from that, concentrate on our own game this week and go over there with both confidence and belief,” he said.It’s tipped to be another classic European match, so try not to miss this one.

The site is on the edge of a village designated as a conservation area. Building within the village proved challenging: the site straddled the settlement boundary and was deemed small and poorly serviced. Featherstone Young adopted a successful two-stage planning approach which demonstrated how building new housing carefully and strategically within villages can prevent the usual linear sprawl extending out along roads, and hence protect and enhance the surrounding countryside.Save this picture!© Brotherton-LockThe principal wing of the house is built off a ‘buffer’ wall of a textured dry stone wall, using the local Clipsham limestone. The site is very exposed, and this provides privacy and climatic protection with its good thermal mass and minimal openings. In contrast, the guest wing is constructed from the same Clipsham stone, but with a smooth ashlar finish and larger windows. Drawing the two wings together is a more refined white rendered wall, crossing diagonally through the house from inside to out. This wall slices the plan into two triangular wings, with each wing pitching its planted green roof in the opposite direction as if the field has been lifted up and the house inserted beneath. The dramatically rising, faceted roof over the main wing begins at one end of the diagonal wall, with the low entrance porch, and culminates in the double-height living spaces at another end, facing south over the surrounding countryside.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© James BrittainThe two-wing design provides a strategy for energy efficiency, whereby only the main wing is heated for day-to-day living, and the guest wing can be opened up only when required, to accommodate up to six people in three guest bedrooms. Internally, a cedar-clad ceiling follows the roof profile, circling over the main living rooms and rising to the highly-glazed south views and double-height spaces of the main wing. The fluid, open-plan design responds to the demands of communal living while retaining a sense of intimacy.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!© Brotherton-LockThe large dry stone wall faces north-west and acts as a thermal buffer. This is countered by large glazed walls and roof overhangs to the south and south-east aspects, which provide a solar gain in winter and abundant natural light and ventilation. The courtyard at the hub of the two wings offers dual aspect and cross ventilation to the principal living spaces, with access from either wing, as well as creating a secluded retreat protected from the prevailing south-westerlies. It leads into a small domestic garden and beyond to a wildflower meadow to the south of the house. The outside spaces have been designed by landscape architect John Dejardin, to complement the playful rising forms of the house.Save this picture!© Brotherton-LockIn response to the client’s love of trees, an eyrie has been created at the highest level of the house, creating an atmosphere of being nestled amongst the treetops. Within the double-height of the main living room, a library and study nestle under the highest part of the rising timber ceiling, commanding magnificent views of the meadow and surrounding farmland.Save this picture!© James BrittainProject gallerySee allShow lessUNStudio Reveals Recent Construction Images of Wasl Tower in DubaiArchitecture NewsThe Architectural League Announces Winners of Emerging Voices 2020Interviews Share Photographs:  Brotherton-Lock, James Brittain Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Structural Engineer: Architects: Featherstone Young Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Burke Hunter Adams United Kingdom Building Contractor: Quantity Surveyor: Year:  2019 Projects in-gine Houseslast_img read more

The timber battens to the ceiling above the Dining space further distinguish it from the adjacent Kitchen and Living spaces whilst still being connected to them. All living spaces for the extension have a northerly aspect to maximise the possibility for winter solar gain.

She has won two national Mayborn School of Journalism Ten Spurs awards for nonfiction, and has penned pieces for Texas Monthly, Salon.com, Dallas Observer, Edible, and the Dallas Morning News, among others. Previous: GSEs Release Mortgage Portfolio Updates Next: The CFPB Adds Five to Its Executive Team Share Save The Loan Application Defect Index (LADI) remained steady in October compared with the prior month but remains 10% lower than October 2019; purchase-loan fraud risk increased 1.2% month-over-month, and less risky refinance fraud risk did not change, according to First American Mortgage Solutions’ Loan Application Defect Index, which examines various portions of loan applications for the month of October. The research is updated monthly during the last week of the month.The monthly index estimates the level of defects detected in the information submitted in mortgage loan applications processed by the First American FraudGuard system. The index is based on the frequency with which defect indicators are identified. The data—which delves into whether the information on a loan is correct, misrepresented, or even potentially fraudulent— is useful when assessing the amount of risk on a loan, according to First American’s economists.First American’s Deputy Chief Economist Odeta Kushi offers some insight into this month’s report:Compared with single-family properties, loan applications for multi-unit properties have historically been riskier, she noted. In October, fraud risk only increased for multi-unit and planned unit developments (PUDs) on a month-over-month basis, 1.2% and 1.6%, respectively … Fraud risk for single-family properties remained the same compared with one month ago. The stability in single-family fraud risk is contributing to the steadiness of overall fraud risk, especially as market preferences tilt towards single-family homes,” she said.Kushi added, “More important for fraud risk is the continued sellers’ market, which may pressure homebuyers to misrepresent information on their loan application to win the bid for a home. The winter months should cool the hot sellers’ market, which may relieve pressure on overall fraud risk.”First American’s report includes trends from a national perspective as well as changes by state, market, and category.
