Tag: 夜上海论坛HP SBW sees positive signs for Toronto

first_imgThe New Zealand great, who began his professional rugby career with the Canterbury Bulldogs, switched codes again last year when he left the Blues to join Toronto ahead of their inaugural Super League season.Twice a World Cup winner with the All Blacks, Williams was unable to help the Wolfpack avoid a 28-10 defeat to Castleford Tigers in their opening match of 2020.The 34-year-old came closer to victory on Saturday as the Canadians fought back to level their match with Salford Red Devils at 16-16, only for late tries from Dan Sarginson and Niall Evalds to inflict another defeat.However, Williams is positive about the team’s progress and feels as though he is becoming more accustomed to playing rugby league again.”As a team, we’re definitely improving, which is the main thing,” Williams told Toronto’s media channel before heading to New Zealand for the birth of his fourth child.”There was a lot of… people would say mistakes but, for us, we look at it as learning. We went out there and we fixed a lot of those wrongs we did last week.”Individually, last week I was happy to get out there and get some minutes under my belt, but I felt like I played like a rugby union player trying to play rugby league, whereas this week I felt like I played like a league player. I’m happy.”Williams went on to urge the Toronto fans: “Stay with us. Although we didn’t get results in the past two weeks, we’re building.”I’ve been involved with a lot of clubs, a lot of franchises and the chemistry within this team is right up there.”We’ll keep working hard and hopefully we start stringing some wins together.” Photo Getty Images Caption: Sonny Bill Williams of Toronto Wolfpacklast_img read more

Tag: 夜上海论坛HP Doe, a deer, a female (attacking human) deer

first_imgCARBONDALE, Ill. – Tammy Emery used to think of deer as sweet and adorable, like Bambi. An encounter with a hard-charging doe changed that. The 31-year-old secretary was among at least seven people threatened or injured by female deer last year on Southern Illinois University’s campus – attacks that have prompted the school to wage a safety campaign during this spring’s fawning season. The attacks in the woods at the 20,000-student university have been attributed to a combination of protective motherly instinct, squeezed habitat and, in some cases, a little too much human curiosity. The message now: Keep your eyes peeled for deer, don’t approach them, and if a wild-eyed deer starts bounding your way, run. Emery heard a rustling and saw “this deer was headed right toward me, full charge.” Emery never saw any fawn, only the adult deer with eyes wide. “I could tell it was angry, but I wasn’t sure what about,” she says. “I know by the time I was in the area she was really mad and going to take it all out on me. I couldn’t have run if I tried.” In an instant, the deer knocked the woman to the ground and delivered a flurry of kicks. Emery, screaming, curled defensively into a ball as the snorting animal rained blows on her, slicing open one of her ears and leaving her with huge bruises and a hoofprint on her hand. “I thought, `This is crazy, this can’t be real. I’m being attacked by a deer,”‘ she recalls.The deer was scared off by passers-by.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Nielsen believes different deer were responsible for the three attacks that sent Emery and at least three others to the hospital, mostly with minor injuries. “It wasn’t like it was one crazy animal,” Nielsen says. But some of the attacks may have been avoided, he thinks, if the victims hadn’t committed an absolute no-no: moving in on a fawn to pet it. Now, with fawning season soon to peak – last year’s attacks happened June 7-15 – Nielsen and other campus officials are using signs, radio spots, e-mails and fliers about the deer in Thompson Woods. All of this comes too late for Emery, a secretary in the political science department who still winces when she recounts what happened to her on the June afternoon she took a shortcut through Thompson Woods. last_img

He was on the successful Swinford minor team of 1997 which won every match they played that year. He would have been a driving force on that team.“He played mainly centre half back.
