The squad will be captained by 23-year-old Loughborough University second row Will Warden, who has Bristol University centre Tom Mitchell as his vice captain.It should be a tough opening assignment in a three-match England Students programme that continues with a trip to Lisbon to take on Portgual’s national side – currently ranked 20th in the world by the International Rugby Board – on March 5 and a rematch with France Universities in Versailles on March 26. Paul Westgate is entering his eighth campaign coaching England university teams. And the director of sport at Uppingham School in Rutland is in his third year as England Students’ head coach with James Farndon as his assistant.“In the first year with me and James together we won four out of four and last year, 2010, we won one, lost two,” said Westgate. “This season is a step up from the previous two when the opposition included Irish Colleges and the Netherlands. France will be tough. Their student players tend to be attached to Top 14 clubs so their day to day rugby is different and they play less university rugby then ours do. We are excited and we believe we have got a very strong squad capable of playing good rugby. The coaches’ philosophy is to put a framework together and allow the players to take ownership of the team and take responsibility. These guys have good core skills and our job is to enable them to play.”In 2010 England Students lost by three points away to Portugal and had a big win over Irish Colleges in the snow of Gosforth. They lost 35-22 to France Universities in Riom. The squad of 22 includes six players previously capped by England Students: Will Warden, Tom Mitchell, Adam Bellamy, Alex Waddingham, Louis Messer and Paul Roberts, the Bath University fly half who was called up in a change to the original squad of 26.There are six representatives from Loughborough and four from UWIC in Cardiff. “We beat the French two years ago and it would be great to kick off 2011 with the same result,” said Westgate, who has Peter Drewett alongside him, returning to the England fold as the Students’ team manager.Tickets for Friday’s match are £10 adults, £5 students and free to U16s, available on the gate or by calling Richmond FC on 020 8940 0397.

  • Wood re-commits to Saints cause

    first_imgTom Wood against Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership in JanuaryNorthampton Saints today announced that Tom Wood has signed a new contract with the club. Wood has had a sensational first season at Franklin’s Gardens. Being named man of the match for his debut performance in the black, green and gold against Leicester last September proved to be a springboard for his career, and by the end of the 2010/11 regular season he was not just a Six Nations winner with England but on the shortlist for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Player of the Season as well.The 24-year-old flanker, who also won the 2010 Churchill Cup with England Saxons, has so far played 22 times for the Saints.Although he had a season left on his current contract Wood had no hesitation in signing a new two-year deal that takes his commitment to Northampton until the end of the 2013/14 season.“I’ve definitely enjoyed my time at the Saints,” he said. “It couldn’t have gone much better really. Working with the players and coaches has been excellent and hopefully this will continue over the next few years.“I knew I had a challenge to establish myself as a Saints player, especially with the quality players that we have in the back row, and everything else has been a bonus. I certainly had no hesitation in signing a new contract, and have no intention of going anywhere else.“The club and town have more than lived up to my expectations. I knew I wanted to work with Jim, Dorian and Paul, and they have all spent a lot of time helping me with my game. And the fans have been brilliant, stopping me in the street to wish me good luck from day one. Hopefully we can finish the job this season and then build on that to bring more success to the club in the next few years.” The news of Wood’s new deal comes just one day after the Saints announced a similar contract with Lee Dickson. Director of rugby Jim Mallinder said then that it was important that the squad at Franklin’s Gardens was being kept together to grow as a team over the next few years, a point he reiterated today.“When you look around the Premiership and in Europe it quickly becomes clear that the clubs that are successful over long periods – such as the likes of Leicester, Toulouse, Munster and Leinster – are those whose squads are maintained over successive seasons,” he said.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “This is what we are trying to do here at Franklin’s Gardens in order to compete at the top end of the Premiership and later stages of the Heineken Cup year in, year out.“This is why Tom’s new contract is such a boost for the club. When he arrived last summer we knew that we were bringing in a good player, and his commitment and dedication on and off the field have helped him realise some of his potential. But he is still young and has plenty to learn, and all of the coaches are delighted that he will be developing here at the Saints.”last_img read more

It features Leicester Tigers flyhalf Toby Flood doing himself a bit a damage by charging straight into the upright during the Heineken Cup 5th round game against the Ospreys.Flood felt it, as you can see by the awkward manner that he fell backwards and writhed in pain, but thankfully he was okay, and got the sponsors a bit more TV time.

On a quarterly basis, prices rose 1.4% in the fourth quarter. However, some of the markets that posted the highest price gains last year are already slowing, which according to Zillow, is “a welcome sign in markets that risk crossing over into bubble territory as rising mortgage interest rates create affordability issues for homebuyers.”An estimated 44,000 homeowners received permanent loan modifications from mortgage servicers during the month of November under both proprietary servicer programs and the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program, HOPE NOW reports. While that total represents a 12% decrease from the 50,000 loan mods completed in October, the most recent data show a steeper 20 percent decline in foreclosure sales and a 17% decline in foreclosure starts between October and November.Eric Selk, executive director of HOPE NOW, stated, “As we approach the seven million mark for completed loan modifications, we remain convinced that the collaborative efforts of the industry, non-profits, government agencies and local community groups continues to make a positive impact on the nation’s housing market,” commented Eric Selk, executive director of the private-sector alliance of mortgage servicers, investors, mortgage insurers, and nonprofit counselors.

Demand also grew with mortgage rates in December holding below 4 percent despite a mid-month interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve,” said Cheryl Young, Senior Economist at Trulia.However, these numbers could also herald another tough home-buying season as inventory remains scarce going into 2018. “The stage is set for another tough home buying season. Starter home buyers will again bear the brunt of frustration as affordability remains out of reach, exacerbated by mortgage rates marching upwards to usher in 2018,” Young said.According to the data, Western U.S. remained the hottest housing market, with Seattle, Las Vegas, and San Francisco reporting the highest year-over-year gains among the 20 cities covered under the index’s 20-City Composite.Though the overall 20-City Composite posted a 6.3 percent year-over-year gain, slightly down from 6.4 percent in the previous month, Seattle posted a 12.7 percent year-over-year increase in home prices—leading the market for home prices. Seattle was followed by Las Vegas which showed an 11.1 percent increase, and San Francisco with a 9.2 percent increase in home prices.“Seattle and Las Vegas had the fastest growing prices for the second month in a row and continued their double-digit growth in December. Prices are up throughout the country, but these two markets are seeing the growth that’s almost double the U.S. average,” said Joe Kirchner, Senior Economist at Realtor.com. “This year, we could see Las Vegas taking the top spot from Seattle in the 20-City composite.”center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / West Remains the Most Expensive Region to Buy a Home Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago West Remains the Most Expensive Region to Buy a Home Related Articles February 27, 2018 2,037 Views Subscribelast_img read more
