Turner hoping to inspire generation next

first_imgSpeaking via video link to school children from Aboriginal communities in Walgett, Gilgandra and several other towns, Turner promoted the idea of healthy living – namely dental hygiene – through the short story ‘Gaarrala Kylegu’ or ‘Brush with Kyle’. The initiative – part of the Rugby League Reads program – involved a reading in the Gamilaraay language as well as a Q&A between Turner and the children that addressed issues such as healthy living, goal-setting and, of course, what it’s like to play with Johnathan Thurston and Greg Inglis. Speaking to after the event, the proud Coonabarabran junior explained what it meant to interact with the Indigenous kids. “Heritage and culture are very special to me, especially coming from the country and being a proud Gamilaraay boy. To be a part of this and to be given the opportunity to influence the younger generation on how to be healthy is special to me,” Turner said. “I remember when I was younger – I think I would have been about 12 or 13 years old – I had David Peachey and Preston Campbell come to our school. “Other than being starstruck by having NRL players there, they really talked to us about being proud Indigenous people and what it means to represent the people. “Ever since that moment, I wanted to be a part of that. Being a part of this book, I feel like I am a part of that now and it means a lot to me.”Turner’s message to kids extended beyond the over-arching concept of personal hygiene, with the 24-year-old encouraging the students to pick up a footy and play rugby league. With rule changes set to revolutionise the way junior rugby league is played, there has never been a better time for kids to start playing the game. And as Turner revealed, it’s never too late to kick-start one’s career. Sometimes all it takes is a few words of wisdom from an NRL star or two. “My footy career all started from that moment. I wasn’t playing rugby league before those guys came to our school but their visit got me into it. If I’ve inspired some of these kids to play, then that’s what my job is to do,” he said. “I played with the Coonabarabran Unicorns. We didn’t have the most intimidating team name. At first I just wanted to play to be with my mates and then obviously it got more serious as I got older.”Our coach took it very seriously but we just loved being around each other. Obviously it got more competitive the older you got, but when we were still kids it was all about having fun.”I started off as a hooker and then transitioned to centre and eventually finished up in the back row. “The least amount of travel you had to do was about an hour-and-a-half away or roughly 100kms. We’d travel as far as Nyngan which was about three hours away. It was a lot of travel but I don’t regret it for a moment.”We all travelled to our games on the bus and it was all fun and games. Everyone just enjoyed their time together on those trips and that’s what footy’s all about.”last_img read more

first_imgKane State: “If you ask me about my feelings, if there will be good news or bad news, I am more in the bad than in the good. That is my feeling.” Player sensations: “What he felt when he left the game, the way everything happened. It only took him two seconds to realize the seriousness of the situation.”Opinion of the doctors: “Before all the tests were done, they said they don’t think we have good news.

The Royal Society, a first round with European flavor

first_imgThe Real society closes a first round with a clear European flavor. The San Sebastian team has lived in the top six classified in most of this first half of the season. Reach the equator in a privileged position, in fifth position with 31 points, although the fight to travel the continent is very close, and will force the San Sebastian to repeat or improve their numbers in the second round if they want to achieve their goal. The problem is that the Txuri-Urdin close this first round with a bitter taste, due to the bad feelings left by the defeat on the last day at the Reale Arena against Villarreal, their authentic black beast because he has won five of his nine visits to San Sebastian. The Murcia player can not hide that he went home angry at the outcome of a game they had for the rest. “We wanted to start adding at home with a victory with our people and we have a bitter taste because in the first part we made a great game creating occasions and being superior, but in the second part the game was more locked and we did not get the fluidity we wanted. Annoying about that, because we failed to maintain the level of the first part “he points out. Now it’s time to correct mistakes to think about staying alive in the Copa del Rey, competition in which they will visit Ceuta Third division. “We have to watch the game again and draw conclusions, positive and negative, because I think we also did many things well and we have to stay with that and correct the mistakes, it is important to keep improving. Now we change competition, the Cup arrives in which we are very excited about, and we focus only on that, with all the desire in the world, “he says. However, in the realistic squad they want to be optimistic, but without losing their point of self-criticism and ambition that has led them to complete one of their best first laps of recent years. “It is good that we have this disagreement with what we have done, because as the day had set, we could have extended the advantage with our rivals, but we are happy because it is good to stay there, in that fifth position from which we do not want to get off and we will fight for it in the remainder of the season, “he says For your, one of the outstanding players of the Real on the last daycenter_img 7last_img read more

Franco Vázquez: “If you say what you think, you are suspended”

first_img‘Mudo’ Vázquez assured that they deserved to get at least one point of their visit to Santiago Bernabéu and regretted the missed occasions in the last minutes to achieve it: “I think that for what we did we deserved to take at least one draw. It was very often. In the second we were playing well, we managed to draw and well, the team went to the end. We had that of Jesus Navas, that of En-Nesyri … I think it’s a shame because we played a great game, “he said.Banega: “If it had happened in our area, I don’t know what would have happened”Éver Banega He did not bite his tongue when criticizing the arbitration received. The Sevilla midfielder, who saw the fifth yellow against Real Madrid and next weekend will not be able to play against Granada, showed his anger at the end of the match.Analysis. “We played a great game against a tough opponent. We knew we could score or win and we used our weapons, but it couldn’t be.”Goal annulled to De Jong. “I am not who to say anything, because I am in the center and I don’t see it well. If it had happened in our area, I don’t know what would have happened.”Gudelj “We haven’t had time to talk, just how we got out in the second half.” Sevilla’s Argentine Franco ‘Mudo’ Vázquez said in the mixed zone of the Santiago Bernabéu, after the 2-1 defeat against Real Madrid, yes “say what you think” on the goal both annulled the Dutchman Luuk de Jong in the 30th minute of the match, which would have been 0-1, they “suspend” him. “I didn’t see the play; Nemanja (Gudelj) says that their player hits him. We can’t do anything with that; If you say what you think, you are suspended. I better keep it to myself. They are decisions that the referee makes, he does not do it in bad will, but it was doubtful, “he criticized the media.“We are hurt because we played a great game on a difficult court, against one of the best in the League. A pity those two goals that marked us in which we were not concentrated, and this against these teams is expensive, “the Argentine analyzed about the game.last_img read more

Vinicius traces

first_imgVinicius is trading up, taking advantage of the fact that Madrid is taking it easy to recover Hazard and that Rodrygo fluctuates. Is going through rookie wall that Vinicius suffered last year. From its volcanic hat-trick to Galatasaray, on November 6, Rodrygo has only scored again in the inconsequential 1-3 in Bruges, where Vinicius also stood out. And Vinicius is with a point untied. He faced the Sevilla defenders four times and left them three times, although his pass to the penalty spot found no auctioneer.The trampoline coperoThe 25 Real Madrid is running for minutes and does so right now that the range of opportunities opens, with the start next Wednesday of the Copa del Rey for Madrid in Salamanca. The Cup was the lever that drove the great rise of Vinicius last season. Lopetegui considered that he still lacked “cooking” but when Solari debuted in Melilla, the Argentine did have Vini. The young Brazilian (by then he was 18 years old) responded by offering his first big night with two assistances in the 0-4 white in the first leg of the first round for Madrid. He rounded it in the return of the Bernabéu (6-1) with another goal pass and which was his first as a Real Madrid player. From that Cup to the current one, Vinicius now has another trampoline copper. In the Real Madrid attack there is only one screwed post, that of Benzema, the rest lives in a permanent horse race and Vinicius has traced. Less obsessed with the goal and more focused on the overflow and imagination, which is his thing, Vinicius took advantage of the 28 final minutes that Zidane gave him against Sevilla to show his repertoire of speed and dribbling with which he opened up again and again to the side Sevilla Sevilla Koundé. Vini cheered the end of the 2-1 white to Sevilla and takes advantage of Bale’s disgrace, who did not even see the show of his Brazilian teammate because he left the Bernabéu in the 82nd minute. last_img read more

The most coral Espanyol

first_imgBut not only those who were already headlines worked, but they also fulfilled the calls to replace those who were on leave. Adrià Pedrosa, who came from staying out of the call against Mallorca, passed the cotton test to supply the sanctioned Dídac Vilà, in one of his most content, defensive and serious games that are reminded of him. Victor Sanchez he did his job at the pivot and, although he saw two yellow ones, it can be said that had real bad luck with the second, since it was just necessary when he pushed his leg away so as not to commit it. Y Wu Lei Not only did he adapt to the right wing in attack and defense, which in the crash of the first lap had been a highway for Sergio Reguilón, but He reflected on the grass the offensive game of rapid transitions that Abelardo has been trying to implement for a month and a half in Espanyol.Not surprisingly, with his target against Sevilla not only certified Wu Lei a gold point for the parakeets (although at that time he gave all three), but it was confirmed as the goal scorer for the Asturian coach in the absence of RdT. He has scored the Chinese in both games without the Madrid striker, against Barcelona and Sánchez Pizjuán. Y, with Abelardo, averages a goal every 56 minutes, since he played 16 ‘in the derby, seven against Athletic, 17’ in Granada and 72 ‘in Seville. Better even than Thomas, with one every 90 minutes although, yes, four in total.Teamwork reaches the benchAs if it were a conviction, just one month and one day after scoring the last of his 11 goals this season with Rayo Vallecano, Adrián Embarba premiered his locker with Espanyol, on Sunday at Sánchez Pizjuán. He did it on a free-kick launching low to the ground, below the barrier, which seemed more of an instant resource (although Éver Banega lay down without much success) than a rehearsed play. However, Embarba did it with all the intention and knowledge. It was the goalkeeper coach of Espanyol, Jesús Salvador, who in Saturday’s training in the Sports City, before leaving for Seville, I had warned the extreme that the Spanish squad usually jump into the fouls. In addition, and being almost on the line that delimits the area, few alternatives had to reach the goal. He succeeded. Beyond the momentary doubts of Sevilla, pointed up the visit to Sánchez Pizjuán for a Espanyol forced to score for their circumstances and that in the previous he lost two of his leaders, David López and Raúl de Tomás. A setback that worsened when, in the nth individual error of the season, Lucas Ocampos scored at 14 minutes. Once, the ‘End’ poster would have appeared on the game screen. But this set by Abelardo Fernández seems made of another wood. He tied, came to come back and, although he stayed with ten and came to receive 2-2, he knew how to scratch a point in a very difficult stadium.Many are the keys to this point that may be worth gold in the fight for permanence, but one prevails over the rest: the teamwork. One way to do that work is done in training, even from the offices and that translated the day they were neither the ‘pichichi’ nor the footballer who is the extension of the coach on the grass, and that more slogans and corrections distributed . Without Thomas, Abelardo kept his usual 4-4-2 (except in defensive work) and resorted to a 4-2-3-1 which also used the last course in Alavés. And the pieces responded. Did Sergi Darder, more focused on the location on the grass and also in his privileged vision of the game to give in-depth passes, without forgetting to defend. Too Jonathan Calleri, stajanovista pointed and turned into another winter signing for a Espanyol who needed it. OR Embarba, who not only scored, but redoubled defensive aids for his band. Behind, Leandro Cabrera acts with an improper hierarchy of a central that takes only four weeks in a club, and blends fabled with Bernardo Espinosa.last_img read more
