Regan Ware’s huge hit on Seabelo Senatla stops South Africa dead in their tracks

first_imgWednesday Feb 3, 2016 Regan Ware’s huge hit on Seabelo Senatla stops South Africa dead in their tracks New Zealand pulled off a miraculous escape in the Cup Final of the Wellington 7s, thanks in part to this crucial big tackle made by Regan Ware. The hit not only resulted in an end to the attack, but also gave the All Blacks Sevens team a shot at victory.South Africa were leading at the time so they probably could have been a bit more conservative, even though a try was there for the taking.After Ware came in for the big hit on speedster Senatla, the ball was coughed up and judged to have gone forward by referee Matt O’Brien, who incidentally took quite a lot of criticism for his handling of the last five minutes of the final.The hosts had come back from trailing 21-7 to score a dramatic late try as South Africa had a man in the sinbin. They ended up winning 24-21, claiming their fifth Wellington title in six years.Sydney hosts Australia won the Plate with a 21-5 win over Argentina, Samoa won the Bowl and France lifted the Shield. New Zealand moved from seventh to third on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series standings with 47 points, give behind Fiji who finished third in Wellington, and seven behind leaders South Africa.World Cup winning star Sonny Bill Williams meanwhile had a mixed weekend, making some crucial errors but also coming up with the sensational pass that led to pool victory over South Africa.While he experienced victory in his first ever 7s tournament, he knows there is lots to work on.“It was a massive learning experience for myself and I’m just grateful to be playing for such a talented side,” said Williams. “The boys had to push themelves to their limits, to places you don’t really want to go. I’m just a bit rusty in some areas. Sevens is very fast and tough on the lungs, but I’m enjoying it and I know I got many things to work on.”Below is the crucial hit by Ware, and you can view final day highlights below that ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Man guilty of murdering Arsenal fan as he travelled to first Emirates match

first_imgMr Daniel, 20, had been a talented athlete and photographer (Picture: PA)The court heard how Mr Daniel, who trained at Hillingdon Athletic Club, had been ‘excited’ to watch Arsenal play for the last time and had kissed his dad Chandy, 59, goodbye at 3.30pm on September 24 last year.Within an hour, his father witnessed paramedics battling to save his son’s life on the platform, before being told there was nothing more they could do.Mr Rees told jurors that Mr Daniel did not know his attackers, who had been on the opposite platform going the other way. He said Lanning had been ‘looking for trouble from almost the moment he walked onto the westbound platform’.The catalyst appeared to be that Lanning thought Mr Daniels was ‘looking at him across the rail tracks’, the court heard. Mr Rees suggested it was Lanning who had been ‘gesturing in a fashion that suggests a challenge’ to Mr Daniel and his friend. Jonathan Camille, 19, was cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter (Picture: PA)The defendants then changed platforms to confront the pair and ‘violence erupted’, in which Mr Daniel was stabbed by Lanning, jurors were told. Lanning had a previous conviction for wounding a man with a knife in Brighton dating back to July 2016, as well as for having 250 wraps of heroin, the court heard.He had been released half way through a four-year sentence in 2018 and was on licence for those offences at the time he killed Mr Daniel.After his arreest, Camille claimed he and Lanning had crossed platforms after the latter told him the two boys had been abusive to him. He went on to claim that he started to speak to the pair but was ‘pushed’ by Mr Campbell, causing him to act in self-defence.

Lanning then stabbed Mr Daniel in the chest in what prosecutor Jonathan Rees described as a ‘senseless killing’, the Old Bailey heard. He was already on licence for a previous stabbing in Brighton at the time, but denied he had meant to seriously harm Mr Daniel, claiming it was an ‘accident’.AdvertisementAdvertisementToday the jury found Lanning, from Hillingdon, guilty of murder, while Camille, 19, was cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter. Both men were remanded into custody to be sentenced on August 20.ADVERTISEMENT The defendants had crossed the platform to attack their victim (Picture: PA)Mr Rees argued against Camille’s claims, stating that both defendants were ‘in it together to inflict damage on the opposition’. Mr Daniel’s family reacted with tearful joy as the guilty verdicts were delivered. Speaking outside court, Chandy said his son was a ‘fantastic human being’ with ‘so much potential and so much to give’.Scotland outlines tier system as millions face new restrictions across UKHe continued: ‘That life, that prospect, that future, was cruelly and needlessly taken away on the afternoon of September 24 2019. On that day a man, who let’s not forget, already held a conviction for stabbing someone else, was free to walk around with a murderous weapon in his possession.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘That same convicted criminal was able to choose to cross a bridge and a platform for absolutely no reason to confront our innocent son. It is in no doubt, nor has it ever been, that this was a senseless, needless, horrific and ultimately unnecessary act of violence. One that our family shall be paying for for the rest of our lives.’Describing the last moments of his son’s life, he said: ‘As parents, we had to watch in disbelief as the paramedics worked on our son’s lifeless body on that platform at Hillingdon – a platform which we will never feel able to use again.‘I held him, stroked his face, and kissed him, as he lay on that platform, only to be told by the paramedics that there was nothing more that they could do for him.‘My wife – his mother – collapsed at the news, unable to comprehend what was happening to our darling boy.’Get in touch with our news team by emailing us at [email protected] more stories like this, check our news page.
