Eben Etzebeth will continue as the Springboks stand-in captain for the Rugby Championship.The 26-year-old lock had already replaced Whiteley as skipper for the last of the three tests against France in June when the loose forward was ruled out of action with a groin injury.Whiteley is not likely to be back before the end of September, which means Etzebeth could be captain for at least five of the six Springbok fixtures in this year’s southern hemisphere championship, starting with the home clash against Argentina in Port Elizabeth on August 19th.”Eben did an excellent job against France in Johannesburg, when he had to step in at short notice after the late withdrawal of Warren. He enjoys the respect of his team mates and also commands respect on and off the field,” said Springbok coach Allister Coetzee.Etzebeth debuted for the Springboks aged 20 and has won a total of 57 caps. Loose forward Siya Kolisi has been named vice-captain.South Africa play Argentina away on August 26th in Salta in their second game in the Rugby Championship and then travel to Australia and New Zealand for tests in Perth on September 9th and Auckland on September 16th.Their last two matches are home to Australia in Bloemfontein on September 30 and New Zealand in Cape Town on October 7.

2018 CWI Regional Super50 Championships…By Clifton RossBoth the Trinidad & Tobago Red Force and Guyana’s Golden Jaguars have been playing like champions, with the Red Force slightly edging out their opponents after winning four on the trot, having recently disposed of the Windies ‘B’ team by 70 runs.Leon JohnsonThe Jaguars also have their tails up, having secured a 93-run win over the defending champs Windward Volcanoes in their last game. This makes today’s clash even sweeter.The Jaguars will back their batting order, now firing; but as seen in the last game, Windies ODI selectee Chandrapaul Hemraj made way for hard-hitting all-rounder Ricardo Adams. The move prompted another Windies selectee in Sherfane Rutherford to be used as a makeshift opener, and it paid off, as the pugnacious all-rounder carved 69 from 60-odd balls.Denesh RamdinAgainst a more seasoned Red Force side, it will be interesting to see if Hemraj, with a masterful ton to his name in the last game he played, could make his return, and where he bats, if so. Opener Trevon Griffith is fresh off a 50, while the veteran Chris Barnwell will be looking for that 100 which eluded him by a run a few games ago. The all-rounders in Raymon Reifer and Romario Shepherd will be tasked with the utility roles.A slight concern for the Jaguars will be the form of their skipper Leon Johnson, who has been short of runs but could tap into his rich form demonstrated in the recent domestic competition, as he will be itching to make a significant score.The Red Force are also in brilliant batting form, led by the dangerous wicket-keeper Nicholas Pooran, who made consecutives scores of 89, 75 and 66 to his name. The veterans have also been peaking over the recent matches, with skipper Denesh Ramdin, opener Lendl Simmons and Jason Mohammed all smashing fifties in their last match. Experienced all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard have also been playing cameos, and could be x-factors come Saturday.When it comes to the bowling aspect, both teams will rest east, as they possess a star-studded battery of operators in that department.Ravi RampaulSpin will be a key factor in the game, as the Jags as well as the Red Force would want to unleash their slower bowlers, which have been getting them success over the recent games. Guyana will bank on Veerasammy Permaul and Ramaal Lewis, who shared 7 wickets in the last game, while pacer Clinton Pestano, Shepherd, Reifer and Barnwell will lead the seam attack.Chris BarnwellThe Trinidadian spinners have been in immaculate form too, with superstar Sunil Narine back to his old wicket-taking ways, along with spin-twin Kharry Pierre, who remains a big player. The pace unit will be led by the experienced pair of Ravi Rampaul, Rayad Emrit and Bravo, with Pollard coming in handy if needed.The Jaguars, thanks to their rampaging win over the Volcanoes, shot up to second place with 15 points, trailing the leaders Red Force by 3, with the winner of today’s clash possibly securing a spot as the number one team in Group A. Action is set to get underway from 11:30h at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium.
1 Manchester City West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has warned his team-mates they must be prepared to face a ‘wounded animal’ when they play a disheartened Manchester City side on Sunday.The Premier League champions have seen any dreams of a title defence shattered in recent weeks and may have to turn their attentions instead to fending off Liverpool’s attempts to usurp them in the race for Champions League qualification.Manuel Pellegrini’s side have four defeats in their last six games, including a crushing 4-2 defeat in the Manchester derby on Sunday, but Kouyate issued a reminder of who the Hammers’ opposition is in Sunday’s encounter.“Anything is possible in football, but we mustn’t forget who we are up against. They are a wounded animal because they need points so they have to wake themselves up to win,” the Senegalese international told www.whufc.com.“A team like Manchester City can’t afford to make mistakes, so for us it’s a good time to face them, but we mustn’t underestimate them, there’s life in them yet.”West Ham have experienced their own malaise in recent months with just one win in all competitions since January, but Kouyate insists the incentive is just as strong for the Hammers to cement their position in the Premier League’s top half.He added: “We need the points as well, because we want to remain in the top 10. It is not going to be easy because we will be up against one of the best teams in the country and last year’s champions of England.“If we are going to get anything there, we have to enjoy it and really play as a team and work as a team.”talkSPORT will bring you live and exclusive coverage of Manchester City against West Ham this Sunday from 1.30pm.

LAHSA officials said they needed $1.7 million more to extend the service providers’ contracts through June, and Los Angeles County agreed on Monday to split the cost with the city. The city’s portion will be drawn from its Housing Trust Fund, with the intent of replacing those funds in the future. However, officials warned that $6 million would be needed in the upcoming 2006-07 budget – a $2 million increase – to ensure that the emergency beds can be available year-round. Council members vowed to continue working on long-term solutions. “The homeless don’t just suddenly, when it’s warmer weather, have another place to go,” said Councilwoman Wendy Greuel. “This is their opportunity for the transition, to have a place to stay while they figure out what their next step will be.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Faced with the prospect of turning 820 homeless people out on the streets, the City Council on Tuesday approved spending $880,000 to keep the city’s year-round emergency shelters open through June. Homeless activists urged the council to fund the shelters through the end of the fiscal year, rather than closing them March 15, when the cold-weather shelters usually shut down. “It’s clear and well-documented that this program is capable of saving lives,” Councilwoman Jan Perry told the panel. “We need to identify the funding to fill the gap.” The program funds 1,500 emergency beds for the city’s 48,000 estimated homeless, officials said.

Declan Bonner’s Donegal have been handed a home draw in the 2018 Ulster SFC.Donegal have been drawn to face Cavan in the preliminary round.The draw, conducted this evening live on RTÉ, has been kind to Donegal, given that they are on the opposite side to Tyrone and Monaghan – who are paired together in a quarter-final. The winners of the Donegal-Cavan game will face Derry in a quarter-final with a semi-final against Down or Antrim the reward.The draw also means that there won’t be a renewal of rivalries with Rory Gallagher unless both Donegal and Fermanagh reach the Ulster final.Gallagher, who stepped down as the Donegal manager after this year’s Championship, has taken over his native Fermanagh, who have been drawn against Armagh.This evening’s draw, giving Donegal a home game in Ballybofey again, continues a remarkable sequence of home ties. In the last 20 years, Donegal have played 24 Championship games in Ballybofey.Donegal have played a home Ulster SFC game in ten of the last 11 years, the exception being in 2014 when they defeated Derry at Celtic Park in a quarter-final.Donegal reached six consecutive Ulster finals from 2011-2016, winning the Anglo Celt three times (2011, 2012 and 2014).This year was the first time since 2010 that Donegal didn’t reach the Ulster final.Their Ulster hopes evaporated following a nine-point loss to Tyrone in a semi-final that finished 1-21 to 1-12, while they bowed out of the All-Ireland SFC following a 4-17 to 0-14 hammering by Galway in a round 4 qualifier at Markievicz Park. 2018 sees the Super Eight series come into being, when the All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals will be played off in a new grouped format.The Ulster and Leinster champions will be in group two, along with the Connacht and Munster runners-up or the teams who beat them in round four of the qualifiers. The Ulster runners-up will be in Group Two alongside the Munster and Connacht champions and the Leinster runners-up.“Our ambition is to be competitive and we have to aim for the Super Eight,” Bonner said following his appointment.“The easiest way to get in there is by winning the Ulster Championship. Ulster will be a minefield again. It’s going to be a tough one.” 2018 ULSTER SFCPreliminary roundDonegal v CavanQuarter-finalsDerry v Donegal/CavanFermanagh v ArmaghTyrone v MonaghanDown v AntrimSemi-finalsFermanagh/Armagh v Tyrone/MonaghanDown/Antrim v Derry/Donegal/CavanHome comforts again for Donegal as 2018 Championship draw is made was last modified: October 21st, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:2018 All-Ireland SFC2018 Ulster SFCDeclan Bonner
