Stephen Jones to win his 100th Wales cap

first_imgDoing what he does best – Stephen JonesAsk Martyn Williams if he’s got any funny tales to tell about Stephen Jones and he chuckles in memory of one particular incident at the Millennium Stadium. It was back when Jones was Wales captain and was leading his team out to face Australia in 2006, only the sponsors had decided to make the players’ entrance more dramatic by putting a giant banner at the end of the tunnel for them to charge through. Jones, in the words of Williams, “had a bit of shocker”. Not only did he have trouble breaking the paper, he fumbled the ball as he punched his way through – hardly the powerful entrance expected.Williams is also quick to question Jones’s fashion sense, saying: “He wore his WRU issue Ben Sherman shoes for six or seven years. They had a silver buckle on the front and he’d wear them with everything, even jeans. His dress sense has never been his strongest suit, although he has come on a bit since moving to the city.”When it comes to Jones’s feats on the field, however, his long-time team-mate is glowing in his praise. There’s every chance the fly-half will become only the second person to win 100 caps for Wales on Saturday 4 June, when Warren Gatland’s side take on the Barbarians at the Millennium Stadium, and Williams would love to see him follow in Gareth Thomas’s footsteps.“In my eyes no one deserves it more,” says Williams. “He’s been an absolute legend for Wales for 13 years. He made his debut in 1998 and has been the heart and soul of the squad since then. He always has a smile on his face and is the ultimate professional. He plays in the toughest position there is in Wales because everybody expects so much of the ten and he’s steered us to two Grand Slams. He’s a good mate so I’m biased, but I can’t speak highly enough of him.”Jones himself is playing down the prospect of becoming a Wales centurion. His rival at No 10, James Hook, will be otherwise engaged at his own wedding on the day of the Baa-Baas game, which has been made a capped International to mark the WRU’s 130th anniversary, so the path looks clear for Jones. Even if Gatland opts to blood a few younger players, the likes of Toby Faletau and Scott Andrews, he will want to have experienced heads around them – and Jones certainly fits that bill. But he has learnt over the years to take nothing for granted. “If it happens I’ll be delighted and it’ll be special, but it’s out of my control – that’s the way I look at it,” says Jones.If he is picked to face the Baa-Baas alongside several youngsters he will be in a familiar position. The Scarlets have built their squad around a few old heads, like Jones, and home-grown talents – and after a couple of shaky seasons they have reaped the rewards. Last term they finished second from bottom in the Magners League and only qualified for the Heineken Cup by virtue of the Cardiff Blues’ Amlin Challenge Cup win, but in this campaign they have been in the play-off mix. Jones, for one, is delighted by the team’s progress.“If you look at where we finished last year to this it’s been a big improvement. We’re ambitious and to be vying for a top-four place says a lot about this team. We’ve a relatively young squad and everybody has improved, we’ve changed our game plan and the coaching structure is very good. We’re developing as a side and that’s the best thing.“A lot of young players have benefited from playing in the Magners League week in, week out last season. To see so many of them not just playing well for the region but breaking into the Welsh set-up and knocking on the international door is a big positive. They can take that international experience back to the regional environment and keep developing.” Jones recognises the importance of developing his own game as well, especially after Hook seemed to sneak ahead in the race for the Wales No 10 shirt during the RBS 6 Nations and with the World Cup just a few months away.“The outside-half position is very competitive so regionally you have to perform and you have to show what you can do,” he says. “The game changes and moves on every year, so I always look at how I can improve and evolve my game.“I discuss lots of things with lots of people. You have to be open-minded about things if you’re looking to improve as a player so you take on board what people say. Even if you’re lucky enough to wear that national jersey you still go through that process, there’s still something you can work on to get better.”The Wales squad have a busy summer ahead, with the Baa-Baas game followed by an intense pre-season and then World Cup warm-up Tests against England (twice) and Argentina – but Jones says the potential return is well worth the effort. “If you perform well and do your job, the reward will be being on that plane to New Zealand – what better incentive is there for a player?”This article appeared in the June 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad?

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Lusaka, Zambia] Los miembros del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano al inicio de su reunión aquí del 8 al 19 de abril se han comprometido a trabajar con el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby y los primados sobre las secuelas de la última reunión de estos durante la cual demandaron “consecuencias” para la Iglesia Episcopal.Sin embargo, no resultó claro, al menos inicialmente, qué conllevaba ese compromiso o si todos los miembros del CCA lo entienden de la misma manera.Welby informó a los miembros del CCA el 8 de abril sobre la reunión de los primados diciendo: “Es mi deseo, esperanza y oración, así como de los primados, que el CCA deba participar también en la resolución de nuestras afectadas relaciones”.La confusión se produjo más tarde cuando, luego de las discusiones de mesa entre los miembros, Elizabeth Paver, vicepresidente del CCA, le dijo al grupo que Welby sí había planteado una “respuesta directa de los primados a nosotros”.La vicepresidente del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, Elizabeth Paver, de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, dijo en una conferencia de prensa el 8 de abril que ella le había pedido a los miembros del CCA que se comprometieran “individual y colectivamente a trabajar por el florecimiento de todas las partes de la Comunión”. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Por tanto, dijo ella, a los líderes del CCA, “les pregunto, ¿están dispuestos individual y colectivamente a trabajar juntos por el florecimiento mutuo y en las relaciones?”.“Decidimos que los votos son… sencillamente divisivos, pero querríamos en amor y hermandad cristianos en nuestra vía anglicana poder decirle a nuestro arzobispo y afirmar nuestras creencias como un cuerpo para trabajar juntos con nuestros primados en estos asuntos difíciles”, continuó. “Si esa es vuestra voluntad, confírmenla con un aplauso; si no lo es, no”.Le respondió un aplauso disperso, pero no todos los miembros participaron.En una conferencia de prensa posterior a la sesión, que tuvo lugar en la catedral anglicana de la Santa Cruz [Holy Cross] donde sesiona el CCA, le preguntaron a Paver que esclareciera el propósito de su pregunta y lo que ella veía como sus implicaciones prácticas.La pregunta que les planteó a los miembros del CCA, dijo ella, fue si estaban “dispuestos individual y colectivamente a trabajar por el florecimiento de todas las partes de la Comunión, particularmente en términos relacionales, de suerte que caminemos juntos y nos afirmemos mutuamente.“Y si los primados, que son nuestros líderes espirituales, están preparados para hacer eso venciendo sus dificultadas, deseamos sencillamente darles a los miembros del CCA una oportunidad de decir que ellos también contribuirán con sus esfuerzos, sus energías y sus oraciones y esperanzas en eso, de manera que esta Comunión pueda permanecer unida y florecer en todas las partes del mundo”.Una mayoría de los líderes de las 38 provincias de la Comunión —a los que se les conoce como primados— exigieron, durante su reunión de enero, tres años de “consecuencias” para la Iglesia Episcopal en respuesta a la decisión de la 78ª. Convención General de cambiar el lenguaje canónico que define el matrimonio como entre un hombre y una mujer (Resolución A036) y autorizar dos nuevos ritos matrimoniales con un lenguaje que les permite ser usados tanto para [bendiciones nupciales] de parejas del mismo sexo como de sexos opuestos (Resolución A054).Los primados dijeron que “exigían” que durante esos tres años la Iglesia Episcopal no estuviera representada en organismos ecuménicos e interreligiosos, ni fuera nombrada o elegida a un comité permanente interno, y “que si bien participara en los organismos internos de la Comunión Anglicana, no tomarán parte en el proceso de la toma de decisiones en ningún asunto perteneciente a la doctrina o la forma de gobierno”.Welby, que habló durante 30 minutos, dijo que ya él había actuando donde tenía responsabilidad y capacidad de actuar. Él ha nombrado el equipo de trabajo solicitado por los primados para mantener el diálogo entre ellos al objeto de restaurar las relaciones y la confianza. Ese grupo, dijo, tiene una representación “muy amplia” a través de la Comunión, de hombres y mujeres laicos y clérigos.El Comité Permanente de la Comunión, que se reunió en Lusaka los días 6 y7 de abril, dijo en un informe al CCA que acogía con beneplácito al equipo de trabajo. Los miembros también “afirmaron los vínculos de relación entre los Instrumentos de la Comunión en los cuales cada Instrumento, incluido el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, forma sus propios puntos de vista y tiene sus propias responsabilidades”.El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby, informa el 8 de abril al Consejo Consultivo Anglicano acerca de la reunión de enero de los líderes de la Comunión —conocidos como primados— durante la cual esos líderes exigieron consecuencias para la Iglesia Episcopal por su decisión de permitir matrimonios de personas del mismo sexo. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Welby no hizo ninguna mención específica de su reciente remoción, como parte de las consecuencias, de las dos episcopales que habían estado sirviendo en dos organismos ecuménicos. La Rda. Amy Richter había estado sirviendo en el Diálogo Internacional Reformado-Anglicano y la Rda. Katherine Grieb era miembro del Comité Permanente Interanglicano de Unidad, Fe y Orden de la Comunión.Después del informe de Welby, los miembros del CCA tuvieron una oportunidad de hacer preguntas esclarecedoras. El único miembro que habló fue el arzobispo Daniel Deng Bul Yak de la Iglesia Episcopal de Sudán del Sur y del Sudán. Él no hizo ninguna pregunta, sino que habló acerca de su experiencia en la reunión de los primados, diciendo que “el espíritu de Dios estaba en la reunión.“El CCA tiene que apoyar la iniciativa ya liderada por el arzobispo de Cantórbery que consiguió unir a los primados y hacer una sola declaración”, dijo, añadiendo que el CCA debía adoptar las decisiones de los primados “para mantener unida la Iglesia de Dios”.Los tres miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal son el obispo de Connecticut Ian Douglas, cuyo período terminará después de esta reunión; la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, que asiste a su segunda reunión, y la diputada Rosalie Ballentine, de la Diócesis de las Islas Vírgenes, que fue electa en junio de 2013 y por consiguiente asiste a su primera reunión. Douglas también está concluyendo su período en el Comité Permanente de la Comunión.“Nuestra provincia es miembro [del CCA] y por tanto es nuestra responsabilidad asistir y participar como representantes de una provincia miembro”, dijo Jennings al comienzo de la reunión. Como miembro del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, estoy obligada a acatar la constitución”.Cuando, el 8 de abril, el presidente del CCA y obispo jubilado de Malawi James Tengatenga resumió las responsabilidades de los miembros del CCA, la vasta mayoría de los cuales son nuevos en [el desempeño de] este papel, él les recordó que la constitución exige la asistencia a todas las reuniones. Tengatenga había dicho antes este año que los miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal tenían el “derecho y la responsabilidad” de asistir a la reunión y votar.Sin embargo, un grupo de obispos y sacerdotes episcopales conocidos como los Asociados de la Comunión, le pidieron recientemente a los miembros del CCA de la Iglesia que cumplieran voluntariamente con las consecuencias de los primados.Welby resaltó en su informe al CCA que los primados “no tienen ninguna autoridad legal sobre las provincias” y que ningún instrumento de la Comunión puede hacer que otro instrumento haga o no haga algo.La Comunión Anglicana existe cuando las relaciones en todos los niveles dentro de ella permiten el discernimiento y la interdependencia mutuos, afirmó él.La última reunión del CCA recibió un informe de 56 páginas (a partir de la página 33 puede encontrarse aquí) acerca de las relaciones entre los Instrumentos de la Comunión.En una carta fechada el 16 de marzo, Welby le dijo a los 38 primados que “las decisiones que tomamos en enero sólo pueden tener efecto si adquieren propiedad general en la Comunión, teniendo en cuenta al laicado, los sacerdotes y los obispos”. Formar la Comunidad del CCA-16Los primeros tres días de la reunión del CCA se han denominado “Para establecer la Comunidad del CCA”, pero a la comunidad le faltan algunos de sus miembros.Cuatro líderes provinciales —el arzobispo ugandés Stanley Ntagali, el arzobispo nigeriano Nicholas Okoh, el arzobispo keniano Eliud Wabukala y el arzobispo ruandés Onesphore Rwaje— han dicho que sus provincias no enviarán sus miembros del CCA a la reunión. La declaración de Ntagali se encuentra aquí, la de Okoh está aquí y la de Wabukala está aquí. Rwaje no emitió ningún comunicado acerca de su decisión).Sin embargo, los tres miembros del CCA de Kenia han venido a la reunión. Wabukala reconoció ese decisión el 6 de abril, al afirmar que esos tres miembros “habían sido alentados a desestimar mi consejo espiritual y asistir a esta reunión”.“Parece que el rechazo de la autoridad moral y espiritual de los primados de parte del presidente del CCA, sin ninguna pública reprimenda del arzobispo de Cantórbery, se ha hecho contagioso y está alentando ulteriores rupturas del orden devoto en la Comunión”, dijo él en parte de su declaración.Además, el arzobispo Mouneer Hanna Anis, de Jerusalén y el Oriente Medio, que también es miembro del Comité Permanente, ha rehusado asistir. Él dijo recientemente que no asistiría a la reunión del CCA ni a la reunión del Comité Permanente del 6 y 7 de abril aquí debido a lo que él veía como el “irrespeto” de la Iglesia Episcopal a las “consecuencias” [impuestas por] los primados. Al decir que “no le molestaba” que la Iglesia Episcopal asistiera a la reunión del CCA, implicaba, sin nombrar al obispo Douglas de Connecticut, que la Iglesia Episcopal no respetaba el objeto de las “consecuencias” de los primados, que dijeron que ningún episcopal debía “ser nombrado o electo” a ninguno de los comités permanentes internos de la Comunión. El CCA eligió a Douglas en 2009 para ser uno de sus representantes en el Comité Permanente.Ntagali, Okoh y Wabukala citaron en parte los planes de los miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal en el CCA de participar plenamente en la reunión de Lusaka y la declaración de Tengatenga respecto a su derecho a hacerlo.Si bien algunos blogs que siguen la Comunión Anglicana han informado que la carta de Welby del 16 de marzo les pedía a los 38 primados que asistieran a la reunión, él no llegó a hacer realmente ese llamado. Más bien el Arzobispo escribió que era su esperanza y oración que “todas las provincias que pudieran estuvieran representadas en Lusaka”.Normalmente, los primados asisten a las reuniones del CCA sólo si pertenecen al Comité Permanente. La que fuera obispa primada [de la Iglesia Episcopal] Katharine Jefferts Schori asistió a las reuniones en 2009 y 2012 con ese carácter. John Holder, arzobispo de las Indias Occidentales [fundamentalmente el Caribe de habla inglesa] ha sido electo por sus colegas para sucederla y representar a América y el Caribe. Además de Anis, los arzobispos Richard Clarke de Irlanda, Philip Freier de Australia y Thabo Makgoba de África del Sur son los otros miembros primaciales.En consecuencia, el obispo primado Curry no estará presente en la reunión porque él no es uno de los tres representantes de la Iglesia ante el CCA ni está en el Comité Permanente.– La Rda.

Australia bounce back to beat Wales in Cardiff

first_imgSaturday Nov 28, 2009 Australia bounce back to beat Wales in Cardiff The Wallabies came back strongly after their shock defeat at Murrayfield last weekend. Written off by their fans and media, the young side bounced back to beat Wales 33-12 at the Millennium Stadium.It was the biggest home defeat of Warren Gatlands reign, and came shortly after he said he wants Wales to be in the top 3 of world rugby by 2011. Australia though, were the team that showed why theyre currently there, as they looked comfortable all match.They got off to a great start with three tries in 16 minutes from Digby Ioane, James Horwill, and David Pocock. Wales werent helped though by the injury losses of Shane Williams, Leigh Halfpenny, and Matthew Rees.Man of the Match Matt Giteau kicked 13 points and played a part in two of the tries, making amends for his vital missed kick last weekend. Tatafu Polota-Nau scored their fourth try in the second half.Wales were booed off the field by sections of the 74 339 crowd, as they failed to create tries despite having one or two pretty good chances. Poor execution and decision making cost them dearly in the end.For the first time in 11 Tests this year that Wales had leaked four tries or more, something that defence guru Shaun Edwards will need to reflect on ahead of the Six Nations. Gatland himself will also need to do a lot more thinking if he wants his side to be serious contenders for the World Cup in 2011.“It’s the most disappointing performance since I have been involved with Wales,” Gatland said afterwards.“Australia were the better team and deserved to win. They came here pumped up and dominated most facets of the game. They completely dominated the air, produced one of the best offensive displays from an Australian side, their scrum was strong and they were better than us at the contact area.“But the four tries they scored came from our mistakes and turnover ball. We need to be more desperate as a team but today will be a huge learning experience for a lot of the younger players.“It was a good lesson for us and we weren’t good enough. As coaches we will be honest with ourselves but now it’s about how we respond to the disappointment.”For the Wallabies, their tour could have been so different. The difference between two wins out of four and a Grand Slam was simply a last gasp try for Ireland, and a missed conversion kick against Scotland.All in all, their media gave them a mauling over the last week, but this young side have shown that theyve got it in them to dig deep when needed, and will take a lot of positives away from a tour that they no doubt learnt a lot from.

Designed as a contrast to its neighboring landmark, Mies van der Rohe’s midcentury Seagram Building, the slim 61-story tower will feature 91 luxury units encased within a pure white glass facade.“It’s not simply about our new building, but about the composition it creates together with one of the 20th century’s greatest. In contrast to Seagram’s dark bronze, our tower will have a pure white, undulating skin. Its proportions are almost impossibly slim and the views will be just incredible,” said Chris Connell at Foster + Partners. “Simplicity of design is often the hardest thing to achieve but in a sophisticated marketplace, people appreciate the timeless beauty that comes from it. Our design philosophy has always extended through the entire building and we will look to create interiors that blend seamlessly with the exterior approach.”Construction is schedule to complete in late 2017. The project was originally unveiled in 2005, but was stalled due to the financial crash of 2008.
