Aironi produce shock upset win over Biarritz

first_imgWednesday Dec 15, 2010 Aironi produce shock upset win over Biarritz One of the biggest upsets of the weekend, and perhaps the season, happened on Saturday in a Heineken Cup Pool 4 game as Aironi produced a dramatic 28-27 win over last seasons finalists, Biarritz.Italian side Aironi have done well since joining the Magners League, putting in some impressive performances at home, and now having come up with a Heineken Cup scalp of top French side.A drop goal from fullback Julien Laharrague with time almost up ensured that they snatched the win after a hard fought game, with Italy coach Nick Mallet watching on from the stands.Biarritz did score four tries and came within seven points so they left with two losing bonus points, but will have been disappointed to go down to a less fancied side. For the home side though, it was a great achievement and showed that theyre making good progress.“It was a huge win for us on two fronts. It was the first win of the season for the club and now we can look forward with real confidence,” said Marco Bortolami.“Secondly, we proved ourselves against last seasons Heineken Cup finalists and that is huge for us. We proved that we have quality and that we can play and it brings the self belief back into the team.”Bortolami attributes the new standard of play to coach Rowland Phillips.“In just a few weeks Rowland has really turned things around here,” he said of the former Welsh flanker. “His personality, his coaching technique and the way he approaches things come across very well and we all really respect him.“I come from playing in England with the British mentality to training and playing and now Rowland is bringing this to the club and all the players are right behind it.“I think you can see from our recent performances especially this last weekend just what he was brought to the team,” he said.These highlights are in Italian, so most of you wont understand but there are some great moments that make it worth watching, none more so than the exciting finish and reactions of the players after sealing the big win.

Government urged to acknowledge defeat and let The Daily News resume publishing

first_img March 28, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government urged to acknowledge defeat and let The Daily News resume publishing Receive email alerts News ZimbabweAfrica The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa ZimbabweAfrica Reporters Without Borders today called on the Zimbabwean authorities to recognise their inability to maintain a ban on The Daily News independent newspaper and its weekly supplement The Daily News on Sunday and to grant them a licence to resume publishing.“Zimbabwe’s system of repression is beginning to crumble,” the press freedom organisation said. “We have the details of an unambiguous Harare high court ruling that totally discredits the Media and Information Commission (MIC) and its biased policies. When forced against the wall, the government violated its own draconian press law. To end to an ordeal that has lasted too long, it should recognise its defeat in the battle with The Daily News’ owners and allow it to reappear.”Reporters Without Borders has obtained a copy of the 8 February ruling in which high court judge Rita Makarau said the commission’s decision to reject a licence application by Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe (ANZ), the publisher of The Daily News, was “rendered void by the participation of the (commission’s) chairperson in its making after he had been found to be biased against the applicant.”Judge Makarau also ruled that “there is merit in the submission of the applicant” to the high court “that the commission as presently constituted is now disabled from validly considering the applicant’s application as their decision will be tainted by bias of the chairperson.”The MIC recognized after the ruling that it could no longer consider the ANZ’s licence application. But no other government authority issued a decision within the 30-day deadline that followed the high court ruling, which expired on 10 March. This means the government is now in breach of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA) for the first time since its adoption in 2002.As a result, the ANZ today brought an action before the high court against information and publicity minister Tichaona Jokonya, to force the government to respond to its application.The drawn-out legal wrangle between the ANZ and the MIC has gone from court to court ever since The Daily News and its Sunday edition were first banned by the MIC in September 2003. In February 2004, the battle reached the supreme court, which took more than a year to issue a decision. The supreme court finally issued its ruling on 14 March 2005, quashing the MIC’s ban on the newspapers and forcing it to reconsider the ANZ’s request for a licence within 60 days. Although this deadline expired on 15 May, the MIC waited until 16 June to consider the ANZ’s request. After two days of deliberations, on 16 and 17 June, MIC chairman Tafataona Mahoso refused to make any statement aside from saying the newspapers would be notified when a decision had been made. He did not explain what that meant. The MIC finally announced its refusal to give the ANZ a licence on 18 July, as a result of which the ANC immediately challenged the decision before the Harare high court.The MIC’s decision was subsequently criticised by a member of the MIC board after he had resigned. The former board member said the chairperson was pressured into refusing the licence by Zimbabwe’s Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO). Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono denied bail Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today called on the Zimbabwean authorities to recognise their inability to maintain a ban on The Daily News independent newspaper and its weekly supplement The Daily News on Sunday and to grant them a licence to resume publishing.
