TWELVE try Saints did their points difference the

first_imgTWELVE try Saints did their points difference the world of good with a 66-24 victory over London which was littered with some scintillating tries.Straight from the off the Saints were in the mood to entertain scoring with their first possession. Two drives from Ross MacCauley and the virtually unstoppable André Savelio propelled the Saints 60 metres downfield and with a penalty it allowed Matty Fozard to open the scoring with a trademark dart at the line from dummy half.The Broncos gave the Saints a bit of reminder with a try from a deft cross kick to the corner but by the time they scored their second again from a last tackle kick on the stoke of half time the Saints had put the game beyond doubt.Great blind side play from the left hand side of the Saints attack saw Lewis Galbraith score twice tip-toeing his way down the line after quick hands from Olly Davies and Jake Spedding.Sandwiched in between was a trademark Savelio try. A big Greg Richards tackle forced the error on the Broncos 30 and from the resultant scrum Savelio was let loose down the right. He swatted off one tackle and fought his way free from three more as he reached out to score.Not to be out done the right side showed they were just as adept with ball in hand as Matty Fleming’s half break put Jordan Tisdale free and his neat out and in move beat the two covering defenders for his first of the night.The Saints were spreading the ball wide with impunity by this stage and the Spedding/Galbraith combination combined again to put the winger in the clear. As he approached the beleaguered full back he passed inside to the supporting Lewis Charnock for the first of his hat-trick.The seventh Saints try of the half saw Spedding deservedly get his name on the scoresheet finishing off a delightful piece of interplay between himself and Galbraith.The second half saw more of the same as the Saints continued to pound the Broncos line scoring five more tries in the process.A determined run back from a last tackle kick deep in his own half from Galbraith put the Saint s on the front foot. From the quick play the ball a great inside ball put Fleming on a 60 metre run down the middle. Another quick play the ball and Charnock was left with a 10 metre stroll to the line for his second.From the restart a good set of six was followed by a great Charnock clearing kick and a fabulous Jordan Tisdale chase which forced a Broncos knock on on their line. Three tackles later and Joe Ryan drove over at the posts.Again great interplay from two players, this time Dave Hewitt and Olly Davies, produced dividends. Hewitt’s wonderfully disguised short ball put Davies away and the play maker was there to receive the inside ball from his second rower to go the final 30 to the posts.On the hour mark the Saints were going at a point a minute rate as Charnock scored his third from a great training ground move. The ball was moved the width of the pitch from left to right with everyone standing their man up before passing out to the support culminating with Charnock strolling over in the right corner.The last twenty minutes became very scrappy as the Saints lost a little interest scoring only once more through Tisdale in the corner.Whilst the Saints were good with ball in hand and didn’t concede a try crafted by the opposition, the fact that four tries were conceded from kicks and an interception will worry Coach Traynor.The night saw the successful introduction off the bench of another debutant in the form of James Nicholl, and there were good performances from Savelio, Charnock, Hewitt and Morgan Knowles who improves every time he plays.Match Summary:Saints U19s:Tries: Jordan Tisdale 2, Jake Spedding, Lewis Galbraith 2, Dave Hewitt, Matty Fozard, André Savelio, Lewis Charnock 3, Joe Ryan.Goals: Lewis Charnock 4, Dave Hewitt 5.London U19s:Tries: Alex Walker 2, Charlie Lawrence, Kieron Morgan.Goals: Charlie Lawrence 4.Half Time: 36-12Full Time: 66-24Teams:Saints:1.

New partnership with UNCW transforms DC Virgo

first_imgWILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — After years of struggling, a school in Wilmington is getting a big upgrade thanks to UNCW. Not only that, it’s also the first of its kind in the state. At DC Virgo Preparatory School in Wilmington, a new school year is also a new start for the school and students.“It’s an exciting blend of what DC Virgo was and new and incredible possibilities for the future,” UNCW associate dean Donyell Roseboro said.- Advertisement – UNCW formed a partnership with the year-round school, transforming it into a K-8 lab school.“This is a school where we can combine the research based best practices for education with the practice of teaching so that those are always seamless and not necessarily ever disconnected,” Roseboro said.This now opens a new door of possibilities for the school, which was failing in previous years, possibilities some students could not even imagine.Related Article: Fayetteville VA inland sites open; coastal sites closed“It means a lot to me and it means a lot to my fellow classmates because it’s basically the stuff we want to learn basically last year, we have to wait,” seventh grader Jasire Chaney said.The partnership with UNCW will allow more opportunities in community engagement, performing arts, and science technology, engineering and math, or stem.“What we hope and believe sincerely is that college becomes a norm for our kids, for our young people, that they understand that this is aspirational but it is also doable, it is possible, and we expect it of you,” Roseboro said.This makes college more of a reality for these kids.“I thought about going to UNCW when I’m older. But you never know cause I have a long way till college,” Chaney said.So far, more than 250 students are enrolled at the school and many of them are returning students.

Watch We have respected the courts decision New members of the judiciary

first_img Miguela Xuereb Miguela Xuereb Miguela Xuereb Miguela Xuereb Swearing inNewly appointed President George Vella told those present that it is an honor for him to preside over the swearing in of new members of the judiciary. He congratulated those appointed. Referring to the Venice Commission report, Vella said that at the moment there is a lot of discussion on the independence of the judiciary and the rule of law. He noted how the Venice Commission noted the establishing of the Committee for the Administration was a step in the right direction, however more needs to be done, with the Commission making its recommendations to the government. President Vella encouraged the Government to implement the recommendations made, saying that in people’s eyes, the appointments will be based on merit.The newly appointed members of the judiciary thanked their respective families for their support.Newly sworn in Magistrate Bridget Sultana thanked her family for the support she received throughout her years and said she looks forward to the challenges ahead. Magistrate Victor Axiak, son of ERA chairman Victor Axiak, spoke of the political injustices suffered, as he thanked his family for their support. Magistrate Nadine Lia said that since she was a child she looked forward to a career in the legal field. Judge Aaron Bugeja described his promotion as a starting point saying it is not an arrival but the continuation of his legal career. Judge Joanne Vella Cuschieri spoke of personal insults and lies leveled at members of the judiciary. Further Vella Cuschieri said that some have even suffered from acts of vandalism against their property. In a lengthier speech, Judge Francesco Depasquale wished President George Vella well for his appointment, as well as thanked the Prime Minister for the trust shown in the judiciary. He commended the government for increasing the pensions and pay of the judiciary. Turning to the Justice Minister, Judge Depasquale spoke of case management and urged for the introduction of sentencing in absentia.Video – Miguela XuerebWhatsApp Miguela Xuereb Updated with the Opposition’s reactionPrime Minister Joseph Muscat said that as a Government they have always respected the decisions that the court has taken. Speaking after the swearing in of six new members of the judiciary, Muscat flanked by Justice Minister Owen Bonnici was replying to questions by the press on Thursday afternoon.READ: Half of new judicial appointments are femaleReferring to the judicial protest and application filed by civil society NGO Repubblika, the Prime Minister said that the first judicial protest which had been filed by the NGO on 12 April asking the court to demand that the government freezes appointments to, and promotions in, the judiciary until measures to ensure judicial independence are properly introduced. On Thursday morning, the NGO filed another application in the First Hall of the Civil Court asking it to order the government not to appoint new judges and magistrates until a new system is introduced. This was subsequently rejected by the court, this means that the Court will start hearing the case on Monday at 9.15am.Prime Minister Joseph told the press that they have waited and respected for the court to decide before forging ahead with the new appointments saying that they have always respected the court’s decisions.‘Stopping judicial appointments does not strengthen the rule of law’ – Justice MinisterJustice Minister Owen Bonnici told the press that what happened on Thursday was due to ‘some people’s agenda’ describing the attitude as ‘negative and destructive’ which leads to regression. Bonnici said that by trying to stop the judicial appointments from happening, one does not strengthen the rule of law. The Justice Minister explained that the rule of law is strengthened through discussions which would lead to bettering the system.He then appealed to those who ‘their agenda is to obstruct rather than improve the situation’ to change their agenda saying that such attitude would not improve the justice system but rather lead to a regression. Bonnici stressed that the government does not agree with those who use ‘a negative and destructive attitude’ which leads to regression rather than progression. He concluded by saying that he believes that the citizens deserve a justice system which is efficient and requires people who fulfill their duties.“The Government keeps ignoring the recommendations made by the Venice Commission on judicial appointments’ – OppositionThe Opposition in a statement on Thursday stated that the “Socialist” Government chose to forge ahead with the judicial appointments without consulting with the Opposition on the matter and without having implemented the ‘much needed reforms’ as recommended by the Venice Commission.Referring to the Venice Commission report, the Opposition said that the Commission made it clear that the system by which judicial appointments are made needs to change. Partit Nazzjonalista remarked that the Government instead chose to continue with the appointments.Partit Nazzjonalista said that the Opposition will not give its consent to ‘fictitious reforms’ that will only serve to concentrate power in the hands of the government. It also referred to its parliamentary mission proposing the setting up of a parliamentary committee that would study the reports prepared by GRECO and the Venice commission and would prepare a draft on how the government should go about the implementation of the recommendations contained in the reports.The statement was signed by the Opposition Leader and Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia.‘The Government is determined to pay lip service to the Venice Commission’ – RepubblikaRule of law NGO Repubblika in a reaction to the swearing in on Thursday, observed that the event was organised hurriedly and described it as the result of a panicked reaction to the risk of a Court which might halt the Government’s “explicit intention of stuffing the judiciary with members of its choice”.The NGO referred to the comments made by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Justice Minister Owen Bonnici to the media, saying that the Court found it was not necessary to halt the ceremony since it would have the power to declare the appointments null and order their reversal if it finds at the end of the urgent hearing of the case that they should have never happened.Repubblika further argued that the ‘hurried appointments amount to effective contempt to the course of justice. The rule of law NGO remarked that the “Government is determined to pay lip service to the Venice Commission recommendations on democratic reforms and to act in a way that continues to crush the independence of the judiciary”.Opposition MP and lawyer Jason Azzopardi who signed the application along with former Opposition leader and MP Simon Busuttil in a Facebook post said that in a “normal country the Government would not attack the lawyers who sign court applications on behalf of their clients”.The Venice Commission reportThe Venice Commission in its report had observed that the Prime Minister should not have the power to influence the appointment of the judiciary, saying that such power would potentially open the door to political influence which is not compatible with modern notions of independence of the judiciary. The Venice Commission further noted that the amendments which had been introduced in 2016 were a step in the right direction but full short of ensuring full judicial independence. In its report the Venice Commission remarked that further steps are required to ensure that the selection of judges and magistrates be made upon merit and any undue political influence should be excluded.READ: Malta faces “prevailing ‘law of Omertà’” – Venice CommissionREAD: Watch: ‘This Government will implement proposals en masse’ – MuscatREAD: Venice Commission suggests creation of independent prosecutorREAD: Venice Commission calls for revision of constitutional rolesREAD: “Perfect laws in the hands of crooks” – Vanni Bonello SharePrintcenter_img Miguela Xuereb Miguela Xuereb 1 of 9 Miguela Xuereb <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> Miguela Xuereblast_img read more
