Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 years

You can download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet or subscribe to the print edition to get the magazine delivered to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Penaud launched another attack from his own line in the 54th minute that saw Gael Fickou take play to the Scotland 22 but the visitors secured possession following a Dupont chip, were awarded a penalty and took play deep into the French half.Sam Johnson got close to scoring from a set lineout move but he was brought down a few metres from the posts. France then conceded a series of penalties and Scotland opted for a series of five-metre lineouts, which led to another David Cherry try.The hooker scored twice against Italy and crossed again in Paris. Scotland won ball at the back of the lineout, set the maul and as Swan Rebbadj ripped the ball it fell perfectly for Cherry, who darted over. Russell’s conversion gave Scotland a two-point lead.Hooker George Turner roars his approval as Scotland open up an early lead at Stade de France (inpho)Rebbadj was quick to make amends, finding a big gap to dive over from close range following a couple of lineouts close to the Scottish line. Ntamack missed the conversion, making it 23-20 going into the last 15 minutes.Scotland came again and opted for more lineouts rather than a kick at goal that would have drawn the scores level. It was to no avail as Russell was sent off in the 71st minute for leading with the forearm to the neck of tackler Dulin – the fifth red card in this year’s Six Nations.It was 14 men v 14 men for the closing minutes, however, as France’s penalty count grew too high and Baptiste Serin was the one shown yellow.Penalties were awarded this way and that as the match drew to a close, but it was the Scots who took the most advantage – kicking into France’s 22 and launching from their lineout once more. They showed great patience to go through more than 20 phases to eventually create the space for van der Merwe to cross out wide. Adam Hastings added the final flourish with a conversion to leave Scots and Welsh united in delight. Despite their historic win, Scotland finish fourth in the table and dejected France take the runners-up spot behind the Welsh. Scotland’s kicking game – and France’s attempts to run the ball out of their 22 – kept the hosts pinned in their own half for much of the first half-hour, but then momentum swung les Bleus’ way.The Scots conceded a succession of penalties and the pressure eventually told from a five-metre scrum. Gregory Alldritt broke from the back and fed Antoine Dupont, who sent a huge pass out to Damian Penaud. The wing stepped infield and offloaded to Brice Dulin to score in the corner. Romain Ntamack converted from the touchline to make it 13-10.Brice Dulin scores for France just before half-time after being put in by Damian Penaud, right (Inpho)Things got worse for Scotland before the half-time whistle when Stuart Hogg was sin-binned, a victim of repeated infringements by his team. From that penalty, Ntamack kicked to the corner but Nick Haining made a crucial intervention to steal the lineout.France got their second try early soon after the break – and it was a beauty. Dulin marked a kick in the French 22, then tapped and ran. Next came Ntamack and then Arthur Vincent, which took play to halfway.Virimi Vakatawa took the move on and produced a sublime offload to Penaud, who chipped ahead and touched down his own kick despite being felled by Ali Price. Barnes was due to award a penalty try for an off-the-ball tackle by Price had Penaud not already scored the try.

This Six Nations finale at the Stade de France may not have been the end-to-end display of running rugby expected – the wet conditions playing their part – but it still delivered plenty of drama, as so many games in this year’s championship have.The match featured six tries, two sin-binnings and a red card, but it was the 20-plus phases leading to Duhan van der Merwe’s late score that stood out as Scotland beat France in Paris for the first time this century.The cheers at Scotland’s 27-23 victory were matched in Wales, as the fact France failed in their attempt to score four tries and win by 21 points mean it is Alun Wyn Jones’s side who lift the championship title.Related content: How Wales won the 2021 Six NationsHere’s how the game played out…Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 yearsMidway through the first half Scotland led 10-3 thanks to a van der Merwe try and a conversion and penalty from Finn Russell.There were question marks over the winger’s try, which came following a five-metre lineout.

Shane Williams great solo try against London Irish

first_imgSaturday Oct 16, 2010 Shane Williams great solo try against London Irish Ospreys wing Shane Williams showed his class as he produced a piece of magic for his side as they beat London Irish 27-16 in their Heineken Cup second round match played at the Liberty Stadium on Friday night.Williams try came after right wing Tommy Bowe had scored another nicely taken try earlier in the game following a good piece of play by James Hook. Dan Biggar kicked four penalties on the night, but Hook himself added a penalty and a conversion.For London Irish, Sailosi Tagicakibau scored an intercept try, and Ryan Lamb kicked 11 points. They were outplayed by Ospreys though who looked the hungrier side, and with moments of brilliance like was seen from Williams, theyve shown that theres plenty more to come.Williams, now 33 years old and surely reaching the latter stages of his career, scored the wonderful try on the occasion of his 50th Heineken Cup match. “I had been finding it really difficult to get involved in games this season, but I felt sharp,” he said.“I just wanted a crack, to be honest. I feel pretty good. It was a very tough game and there was a lot of pressure on us to play well. It would have been doom and gloom in Wales had we lost.”London Irish head coach Toby Booth was full of praise for Williams after the game.“He came up with something exceptional – it was Shane Williams at his best. I am all for the entertainment business, and it was a great piece of skill by him. It’s what the Heineken Cup is about, and he has been doing that for a long time,” he said.

Former USDA Chief Economist Discusses 40-Year Career, Farm Policy

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Apr 21, 2015 SHARE Renowned agricultural economist Dr. Keith Collins reflects on his distinguished career and the future of farm policy in a series of videos released today by National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS).Collins spent 32 years in federal service, where he served as the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) chief economist to four secretaries of agriculture and as chairman of the board of the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation for seven years.  After leaving USDA in 2008, he became a consultant to NCIS.Collins recorded the three videos as one of his last projects before he officially retired from NCIS on March 31.The videos attest to Collins’ nearly 40 years of farm policy experience, during which time he was a witness at 80 congressional hearings, received five Presidential Rank Awards for Distinguished or Meritorious Executive and was elected a fellow of the Agricultural  & Applied Economics Association.“I have had the best of all possible careers over that period of time,” he said. “I owe a great deal of gratitude to the American farmer for what they have done, for the food that they produced, the way they produced it.Collins urged new administrations and members of Congress to recall the farm policies of the past and why decisions were made to make crop insurance the centerpiece of today’s farm safety net.“Look at the program that we have today, look at where it came from, look at how it evolved, how it emerged as the best of many different programs that were tried over the years,” he said.  “And the success of the program has hinged on it being available to producers widely across America, being affordable for producers large and small, and having a private-sector [component] that is financially viable.”Collins concluded saying, “Looking to the future, we want to prevent anything that would undo the success of this program.”The first video is Collins’ testimonial, chronicling why Congress turned to crop insurance as the foundation of the farm safety net, and it is available here.The second video tracks farm policy’s journey from complete government control to being more market oriented and driven by the private sector.  It can be viewed here.Finally, Collins discusses why affordability, availability and viability of crop insurance are so crucial in the third recording, which can be seen here.
