Titans complete player swap for Super League sensation

first_imgGreenwood is considered one of the best young back-rowers in the Super League and has been on the radar of several NRL clubs.Both Taia and Greenwood are awaiting visas before they officially join their new clubs.”We wouldn’t want to stand in the way of any player wishing to ply their trade elsewhere and Joe has been given a good opportunity at the Gold Coast,” Saints coach Kieron Cunningham said.”It’s always difficult to lose a home-grown player and personally I will be sad to see him leave.“I’ve worked hard with Joe to develop his game and help him grow as a person – and he has done just that.”Hopefully, one day after a successful NRL career, he will pull on the Red vee again.”last_img read more

Advíncula will be able to finish the course now that there is no Copa América

first_imgThe defender is a celebrity in his country, where all his movements follow the minute. The last, exercising during quarantine at his Madrid home. Advíncula continues with his exercise routine and has shown on social networks how to care for squats, which combines with weights. Now their sights will only be on LaLiga and Rayo, after the South American qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup (set for March 26 and 31) were also canceled due to this pandemic. The Euro Cup will be postponed until 2021, but it will not be the only international event affected by the coronavirus crises. CONMEBOL has also decided to postpone the Copa América, which was to be held in Argentina and Colombia between June 12 and July 12, next year. This decision will positively influence Rayo, who may count on Advíncula if LaLiga resumes. The franjirrojo team would have one of their fixed at eleven to face the final stretch of the championship and even the promotion playoff. That, in the hypothetical case that the Vallecanos got into positions that are now six points away. Advíncula’s Peru reached the final of the last edition of the Copa América, where they fell against Brazil 3-1. The winger caught on in a great competition and made Rayo move a file and exercise a purchase option of around three million. Last summer the possibility of it coming up was considered. However, the international continued in the franjirrojas ranks and has become important within the team. So much so that today, he is the owner and lord of the right lane. Hence, in the January window his departure was ruled out, despite the interest on the part of several Premier, Series A and Primera teams.last_img read more

MAN’S ATTEMPT TO LURE WOMAN TO ISLAND LIFE LEFT ALL AT SEA

first_imgA man’s search for a female companion to join him for a year on an isolated island off the Donegal coast has failed.John McManus, 36, advertised for a “wife/companion” who would accompany him to the island of Inishfree in January.McManus, from Leitrim, wanted the woman to spend the next 12 months with him while he lived off the land and wrote a book about his time. McManus was inspired by Gerald Kingsland, whose island adventures with a partner found via an ad were chronicled in the 1980s book and film ‘Castaway.’It was later reported that McManus had been involved in a scheme in which he offered to impregnate women for their husbands.The unemployed hotel worker offered his services in hotel sex sessions and had once advertised himself as a faith healer and as a “wizard seeking witches to join my coven.”McManus’s ad attracted thousands of queries from curious parties. But just before Christmas, he admitted defeat in his search for an island companion, saying he could not find anyone suitable who could commit for a full year and that he wasn’t planning to go alone.  MAN’S ATTEMPT TO LURE WOMAN TO ISLAND LIFE LEFT ALL AT SEA was last modified: January 1st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:companiondonegalInishfreeJohn McManuslast_img read more

Second season begins for COC

first_imgThe College of the Canyons football team, the defending state champions, opens up the playoffs today against visiting Chaffey in the Western State Conference Bowl at 7 p.m. “We’re jazzed up about the game,” Canyons coach Chuck Lyon said. “The expectation level around here is pretty high. It’s well beyond the first round.” That’s not to say the Cougars (10-0) are overlooking Chaffey (7-3). The Panthers are ranked No. 8 in Southern California in the most recent California Community Colleges Football Coaches Association poll. “We’re not going to do anything different,” Lyon said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals It doesn’t appear as if changing a thing is neccessary considering Canyons is in the midst of several impressive winning streaks – most notably, perhaps, is the fact the team has won 27 consecutive games at Cougar Stadium. “We don’t lose at home,” Canyons sophomore quarterback Marcel Marquez said. Canyons has won 49 straight conference games, 38 in a row during the regular season and 24 consecutive overall. But none of that will matter if Chaffey pulls off an upset. “We’ve been here before. We know what it takes to win the playofss, Lyon said. “We know we’re good. No doubt about it. We expect to win.” The so-called experts agree. J.C. Grid-Wire, a highly respected national publication, went so far as to predict that Canyons would win 35-17. “Canyons is the cream of the crop,” said Hank Ives, editor of J.C. Grid-Wire. AT A GLANCE CHAFFEY (7-3) AT CANYONS (10-0) Kickoff: 7 p.m., Cougar Stadium Radio: 1220-AM Outlook: Canyons, ranked No. 3 in the nation by J.C. Grid-Wire, will be taking the first step toward defending its state title. Upset-minded Chaffey is looking for revenge after losing to the Cougars 33-3 in the season opener back in September. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
