We made it easy for them: Hasler

first_imgThe most concerning aspect of the 30-14 loss for Bulldogs fans would have been the lack of direction at the end of sets, despite having cool-headed halfback Matt Frawley calling the shots in the absence of injured five-eighth Josh Reynolds.Yet a Cowboys side missing their chief playmaker proved far superior to Canterbury in that respect, completely dominating possession and field position in the match, aside from an 18-minute stretch in the second half where the home side threatened a late and unlikely comeback in which they scored all three of their tries.Crucially, an obstruction penalty against decoy runner Josh Jackson for initiating contact on Ray Thompson cost the Bulldogs the opening try of the match in just the third minute while a similar infringement – also against Jackson – cost Canterbury possession while on the attack later in the first half.”I thought maybe in the first half we cruelled ourselves as far as our discipline and a couple of penalties with the ball,” was Hasler’s assessment. “We certainly made it easy for them at getting down the field and then playing field position. I think they scored five tries, four from kicks so we made it fairly easy for them in the first half in regard to that. We weren’t real disciplined there.”Hasler described the first call against Jackson as “50-50″.”That’s just the way it is but I’m not going to whinge or complain about it but I thought the other one was pretty questionable as well,” he said.”They’re not reasons why we lost the game… we just didn’t use the ball well enough. Consequently when you find yourself chasing points, the way we had to chase points, it makes it tough.”Hasler still believed the team managed the midfield contest well.”I thought we tackled well, I thought we managed it well, we just didn’t manage our opportunities well enough and I thought our discipline was a bit wayward. Particularly when you give away penalties with the ball,” he said.last_img read more

Guyanese, Venezuelan women arrested following brawl at drinking spot

first_imgA Guyanese woman along with a female Venezuelan national were arrested following a brawl at a popular drinking spot in Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), in the wee hours of Saturday morning.Lance’s Bar, located at Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE)Both ladies would have sustained injuries as a result of the fight which stemmed from “name calling”.The Spanish-speaking foreigner was celebrating her birthday with other Venezuelans at Lance’s Bar located at Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), when the incident took place.Reports are that between midnight and 03:00h on Saturday morning, the group of Venezuelans were at one section of the bar when the Guyanese along with her friends entered the premises.The two groups were seated some distance apart when the Guyanese woman allegedly started to taunt the Venezuelan women who were minding their own business.According to the owner of the bar, the foreigners did not engage in any cross-talking with the Guyanese woman.The insults intensified and some hours later, the Spanish speaking women exited the building and stood in the yard to continue having their alcoholic beverages.Shortly after, the Guyanese along with her friends left their seats and sat on the benches, closer to the Venezuelans. The taunting continued and this eventually led to a scuffle.“I was not there outside and when I was going outside, I was told by persons in here to remain indoors, but I know they were fighting with each other. I am not taking sides, I did not witness the fight in actuality but the Guyanese began troubling the Venezuelans who tried to ignore them the entire time they were here. I was later told that the police were called in because it was at that time I was closing up that the fight started,” the proprietress related.Commander of Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) Assistant Police Commissioner Simon McBean, when contacted by this publication, confirmed that the two women were taken into Police custody after their alleged altercation took place.He noted that they had been taken to the nearby hospital to receive treatment for their wounds and obtain the necessary medical documents as investigations into the matter continue.last_img read more

Salah wins African Player of the Year award

first_imgHe also starred for resurgent Egypt, who last year finished runners-up to Cameroon in the Africa Cup of Nations and secured a first World Cup appearance since 1990.In the penultimate round of World Cup qualifying, Salah scored the brace that edged Congo Brazzaville in Alexandria, including the stoppage-time winner from a penalty that sealed a trip to Russia.Salah’s Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane, of Senegal, was runner-up and 2015 winner, Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang third after a 30-player list had been trimmed to three.National coaches, Confederation of African Football (CAF) officials, journalists and the public were involved in the voting.The Egyptian succeeds Algerian Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City as holder of the most prized CAF individual award.It is the first time since 1986 that stars from the north of the continent, which along with the west is the strongest football region, have won successive titles.Victory on Thursday completed an awards hat-trick for Salah, who was named BBC African Footballer of the Year in December and Arab Player of the Year earlier this week.Mane was voted 2016-2017 Liverpool Player of the Season, but the 25-year-old has since been overshadowed at Anfield by Salah’s scoring exploits.He did stand out for Senegal, however, as they secured a first World Cup appearance since 2002, providing much of the creativity in a team stacked with physically formidable footballers.Aubameyang was Bundesliga top scorer with 31 goals last season, holding off Bayern Munich and Poland ace Robert Lewandowski.He flopped with Gabon, though, failing to take the 2017 Cup of Nations hosts past the first round and shunning several World Cup call-ups as Gabon failed to qualify.Other award winners included Women’s Footballer of the Year Asisat Oshoala of Nigeria and Youth Player of the Year Patson Daka of Zambia.Argentine Egypt manager Hector Cuper was named Coach of Year and other honours went to Egypt (national team), South Africa (women’s national team) and Wydad Casablanca (club).Ahead of the awards ceremony, CAF president Ahmad Ahmad told a media conference why the Africa-based Player of the Year and Referee of the Year awards had been scrapped.“When a footballer aims for excellence, they must rise to the highest standards, irrespective of where they play. We hope one day the best player will be based in Africa.“Referees already have their rewards and marks of recognition. They are evaluated after every match and the best are designated matches like the CAF Champions League final.”Shortlists had been drawn up for both awards when the CAF executive committee decided to dump them, initially without offering any explanations.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mohamed Salah, pictured in November 2017, is the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goalsACCRA, Ghana, Jan 4 – Prolific Liverpool scorer Mohamed Salah was named African Player of the Year in Ghanaian capital Accra on Thursday, the first Egyptian to win the award since Mahmoud al Khatib in 1983.The 25-year-old has scored 23 goals in 29 matches in all competitions this season for the Premier League outfit after moving from AS Roma in the summer.last_img read more

Kahn tipped to be Bayern Munich’s next president

first_img0Shares0000Former Germany captain Oliver Kahn, 49, could replace Uli Hoeness as president of Bayern Munich © AFP/File / Odd ANDERSENBERLIN, Germany, Nov 21 – Former Germany captain Oliver Kahn is emerging as the favourite to be the next president of Bayern Munich — 15 years after he first put himself forward for the job.In 2003, while he was still keeping goal for Bayern and Germany, Kahn said in an interview that he “could not imagine a better man than me” to one day take charge of Bayern. Current Bayern president Uli Hoeness, 66, is due for re-election in November 2019. According to magazine Sports Bild, Kahn, 49, is Hoeness’ prefered candidate to replace him when he eventually stands down.The pair have stayed in contact since Kahn retired in 2008 after making 632 appearances for Bayern in 14 years, winning the Bundesliga title a joint record eight times.Neither Kahn nor the club has commented on the speculation.Former Bayern and Germany captain Lothar Matthaeus says Kahn would be the ideal candidate to succeed Hoeness, who has spent nearly 50 year at the club as a player, then team manager and eventually president.“He (Kahn) is a face of Bayern Munich, carries the club’s DNA within him and is a connoisseur of football,” wrote Matthaeus in German daily Bild.“He was always ambitious and has continued to educate himself, even in financial matters.“I trust him to lead Bayern in the future.”Kahn made the last of his 86 appearances for Germany in 2006 and has been working as a TV pundit since.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
