Ireland analysis: The tactical kicking of Conor Murray and Jonathan Sexton

first_imgIronically, given neither will face Ireland on Sunday, Mike Brown and May did brilliantly here, shooting back to avert the immediate danger. Still, this sequence is a concrete illustration of how Sexton manoeuvres defenders.England know this tactical threat is at hand. The question is whether or not they can quell it. “Certainly our back three are going to be tested, but whatever combination we go with will be ready. We know it is going to come our way again.” Stuart LancasterKicking – grubbers, Garryowens, hacks, spirals, take your pick – is a central feature of modern day Test rugby. For all their clinical attacking and ferocious physicality, one of New Zealand’s most influential attributes is how their playmakers use their feet. It is an integral aspect of All Black success.A consistent kicking game can relieve pressure, control territory and unpick even the most watertight of defensive walls.  On Sunday, expect England’s back three to be thoroughly examined by two of the best in the business.Alex Goode has faced the barrage before, exuding classy calm in 2013 as the visitors prevailed 12-6. Jack Nowell stood firm at Twickenham a year ago too. This will be a fresh experience for Anthony Watson, but the Bath youngster possesses star quality.In any case, as Lancaster knows, the storm is coming. Here is a look at how Conor Murray and Jonathan Sexton – two of the very best in the business – will look to strike through the heart of England in Dublin.Hitting corners, keeping it contestable and boxing clever The best place to start is with this duo’s bread and butter, the tools they use in game management. First up, Sexton is a master at pinning corners, sending the ball over a wing’s head and landing it close to the touchline.This one during the 18-11 win over France was marginally overcooked, rolling into the dead-ball area rather than into touch. Even so, the fly-half gets excellent weight on the connection allied to intelligent direction:Of course the resultant 22 drop-out handed possession back to Ireland in any case. Camille Lopez‘s restart found its way back to Sexton rapidly, and he showed another string to his bow on the return with an archetypal up and under:Rob Kearney, an extremely effective aerial presence, enhances the work of Sexton hugely here, haring in pursuit of this bomb and beating Scott Spedding to it.The Leinster full-back was also a willing ally for Murray, whose was typically precise against Les Bleus:The box-kick is normally executed methodically. Popular in recent seasons has been the practice of deploying guards in front of the kicking foot. Usually large forwards, they are loosely attached to the ruck and responsible for easing pressure from a potential charge-down.As this screenshot depicts, Jamie Heaslip assumes the role in this case, stopping France loosehead Eddy Ben Arous getting anywhere near Murray:Helped by that, this connection is excellent. However, as the old saying goes, the kick is only as good as its chase. Luckily then, Kearney flies upfield to make the tackle on Spedding with flawless timing.As Peter O’Mahony and Devin Toner hit the breakdown, Damien Chouly (circled in blue) sinks, failing to support his bodyweight in a bid to seal the ruck:A penalty is awarded by referee Wayne Barnes and Ireland have a very satisfactory return. Later though, another Murray-Kearney combination won the ball back outright:Toner is the designated blocker and again the weight is outstanding, so much so that Kearney comes through to leap against scrum-half Rory Kockott:While not collecting cleanly, Kearney has turned to face his own teammates. As such, the ricochet can be swooped on by Heaslip.Chipping awayThe luxury of having Robbie Henshaw, Jared Payne and Tommy Bowe in wide channels is that opposition defences must always be mindful of Ireland’s running game. That means pushing up flat to deny them space.The consequence of that is that space is left in behind. Needless to say, Sexton is a master at exploiting any such gaps. Here a deft dink sees covering Spedding nudged into touch after Teddy Thomas presses:A reverse angle offers a decent idea of the dilemma facing a rival team. It is suicide to ignore the possibility that Ireland will put the ball through the hands, but mightily tough to look after every blade of grass: Brains trust: Jonathan Sexton and Conor Murray during Ireland’s victory over South Africa in November Mandatory Credit ©INPHO/Cathal Noonan TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sexton caught France napping once more in the second period following a restart. Though the visitors scrambled back to escape, a simple stab caused havoc:Acute spatial and personal awareness are in play here. A bird’s eye view is easiest for us mere mortals, and allows us to see why Sexton takes this option – because replacement scrum-half Morgan Parra has strayed shallower and wider than a customary sweeping position to protect France from Ireland’s wide runners.There is an expanse free down the middle, so Sexton calls chasers onto his inside in the form of Kearney and Sean Cronin before dropping onto his boot:Loann Goujon saves the situation, but it provides a lesson. You can never switch off with Sexton around.Carving out chancesAs mentioned above, kicking is also a significant source of try-scoring opportunities. Indeed, Bowe’s match-clinching effort to beat South Africa was a prime example – and one in which a multi-step strategy fell into place flawlessly:With the Springboks down to 14 men thanks to a sin-binning for hooker Adriaan Strauss, Bismarck du Plessis has replaced flanker Marcel Coetzee. South Africa are one man short in the back row, to Sexton takes them on and ties them in.Duane Vermeulen makes the tackle and, expecting a wave of forward runners heading the same way, Schalk Burger understandably trundles around the corner:Arriving on the scene quickly, Murray can look up to see that Bryan Habana, wary that his team might be short on numbers on the openside, has wandered infield from his post on the blindside wing. Bowe is unmarked and in the clear:It is worth a closer look to gauge the quality of Murray’s contribution:Finally, we rewind a year to Ireland’s trip to Twickenham and a characteristic piece of Sexton trickery:Lancaster talks about his back three needing to read the body language of fly-halves in order to decide how to defend. This play shows how difficult that skill can be.Sexton only goes cross-field after a double slice, first Chris Henry feeding Murray behind Gordon D’Arcy……and then Murray hitting Sexton behind Brian O’Driscoll:In two passes with two decent decoy lines, Sexton is in midfield faced with a defence that is anticipating a midfield threat. With Jonny May edging off his wing, he finds Trimble with an inch perfect clip: England will have to deal with arguably the smartest half-back pairing on the planet in Dublin. We analyse what Ireland’s nine-ten axis will offer.last_img read more

The Freshwater House developed the idea of the operable façade to mediate between the requirements for privacy and shading on a relatively public site adjacent to the beach. The resulting building is made up of three distinct parts; a podium base, a garden/ living space, and a bedroom volume clad with operable screens; each designed with unique spatial and material qualities. Save this picture!The basement podium level is introverted and enclosed, concealing a deeply recessed entry vestibule and garage within the natural topography of the site. The podium is clad with vertical weathered timber battens, which wrap around the entire level and extend to the ground floor, to form a balustrade at the periphery of the site. The timber battens of the balustrade are angled on each façade to allow direct views to the beach below. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe living level on top of the podium is open and expansive, in contrast to the contained basement foyer below. Sandwiched between the upper and lower volumes, the living space is almost without definition. This level is conceived as one fluid horizontal landscaped space, taking in the whole area of the site and connected visually to the landscaped areas below and above the site. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe top bedroom level floats above the landscaped living level and is veiled with custom- made external bi-folding shutters anodised dark bronze. The shutters are constructed of vertical battens to maintain views to the beach below. The shutters provide privacy, enclosure and dappled light to this level. The detailing of the shutters is purposefully simple such that the building reads as an abstract sculptural form in the landscape when viewed from the beach. When the shutters are open the appearance of the building, and the experience of the interior, transforms. The client’s occupation of the dwelling registers in the operable facade of the building.Save this picture!© John GollingsProject gallerySee allShow lessRome City Vision Architecture CompetitionArticlesTransparent Cells / Aristide AntonasArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© John Gollings+ 20 Share 2008 Year:  “COPY” Houses Architects: Chenchow Little Area Area of this architecture project Australia Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Freshwater House / Chenchow Little “COPY”last_img read more

As demand for recyclables plummets abroad, Texas lawmakers back plan to boost demand at…

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Pinterest As demand for recyclables plummets abroad, Texas lawmakers back plan to boost demand at home Twitter WhatsAppcenter_img TAGS  Facebook Local NewsState Twitter For decades, countries like China and India have bought much of the United States’ recyclables, turning them into plastics, paper and other valuable goods. But in recent years, those countries have implemented policies — including banning certain plastic imports — that have cast further doubt on the future of municipal recycling in the United States. On Monday, bipartisan legislation designed to help offset the sapped demand for recyclables abroad cleared a final legislative hurdle at the Texas Capitol. Senate Bill 649, which passed the Senate last month on a 21-10 vote, cleared the Texas House on an informal voice vote. The bill aims to increase the number of Texas plastics and paper manufacturers using recyclables as industrial feedstock to produce consumer and other products. It will require the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Texas Economic Development and Tourism Office to figure out how best to increase demand for recyclable materials among the manufacturing industry, identify the quantity and type of recyclables cities and industrial sources are currently collecting and estimate how much of it isn’t currently being reclaimed. The bill also calls for the development of a statewide campaign to educate the public about the economic benefits of the recycling industry and how to properly recycle. Its passage comes as cities across the United States, and in Texas, are reevaluating recycling programs in the face of a variety of challenges. Some already have canceled them or scaled back. State Sen. Judith Zaffirini, who authored the bill, said in a statement that the legislation is not only about propping up the recycling industry but spurring business growth. The Laredo Democrat noted the results of a recent economic impact study that discovered the recycling industry has a meaningful economic footprint in the state. That study was required by a 2015 bill by state Rep. Ed Thompson, a Pearland Republican who authored a bill identical to Zaffirini. The analysis found that the industry has a statewide annual economic impact of more than $3 billion — and that it employs more than 17,000 people. “This is a critical industry that has a significant impact on the Texas economy,” Thompson, who is vice chair of the House Environmental Regulation Committee, said at a public hearing on the legislation in March. “Considering the volatility in the recycling market, I believe it is imperative that the state step in and do something.” In lobbying for this year’s legislation, proponents painted it as pro-business rather than pro-environment, hoping the argument would resonate more with Republican lawmakers. “What we really wanted to do was have the voice of the industry push this bill,” said Jordan Fengel, executive director of the State of Texas Alliance for Recycling, a nonprofit that advocates for recycling through education and business partnerships. And it didn’t hurt for industry support. The bill won the endorsement of more than 60 businesses, according to Fengel. And, perhaps most notably, the powerful Texas Chemical Council backed it. Hector Rivero, the council’s president and CEO, described it in an interview as “a progressive effort.” According to the economic impact study Thompson’s bill required, the legislation may increase the amount of recycled municipal solid waste in Texas from 23 up to 50 percent, due to more businesses and processors being brought to the state if demand is increased. In March, Thompson said one of the most obvious ways the state could encourage manufacturers to use recyclables as industrial feedstock is to place plants near the source of the materials — a concept Fengel said would make it easier on everyone in the supply chain. Fengel said the state’s recycling industry cannot produce a market development plan of its own because antitrust regulations prevent sectors of the industry — from collection to manufacturing — from coordinating. Instead, the plan would make the state a third-party facilitator, allowing industry to have otherwise prohibited conversations. The legislation is estimated to cost $1 million to implement through 2025. Funding would come from the state’s GR549 account, which collects fees associated with solid waste disposal. Steve Shannon, who chairs the recycling alliance’s business council, said the legislation is critical considering China’s implementation in 2017 of its National Sword policy, which banned the import of two dozen types of recyclables and led to a devaluation of the U.S. recycling market. He said that Texas – especially as its population grows and generates more recyclables – should be rolling out “a red carpet” to industry. And he said it costs far less to ship something across Texas than it does to send it overseas. Gwendalyn “Gigi” Gebhardt, a regional sales manager for Sierra International, a California-based equipment provider for scrap and recycling businesses, said the bill would definitely create more industry jobs. “If the feedstock demand is increased, then we’ll have companies setting up shop in Texas to produce the products,” Gebhardt said. The TCEQ and the Texas Economic Development and Tourism Office will have until September 2020 to send an initial implementation plan to Gov. Greg Abbott and the Municipal Solid Waste Management and Resource Recovery Advisory Council.
