Gatland ponders Lions quota system

first_img Press Association Wales coach Warren Gatland believes the British and Irish Lions should consider using a quota system. Gatland took charge of the Lions for their tour of Australia earlier this year, coming away with a 2-1 series win thanks to a team dominated by Welsh players. His selection drew criticism in some quarters and Gatland believes a discussion is needed about what fans want from the team. center_img He told the Sunday Telegraph: “I think something the Lions should instigate is a public debate about whether the Lions need a quota system. “It’s worth debating and I think we should start it off. Do we need a minimum number of players from a country in the squad and then, when we are picking a Test side, does there need to be a minimum of one or two [from each country] in the starting XV? “I think I know what the answer will be with that, but, if we don’t raise it and debate it to get a consensus, then potentially we are going to end up with what we had recently on this tour.” Gatland was surprised by the vitriolic response his team selections inspired in come quarters, with suggestions that his choices were anti-Irish or overly pro-Welsh. “That personal stuff got to me,” Gatland said. “I go back to the 1993 Lions tour to New Zealand and I think there were 11 Englishmen that started the third Test in Auckland, but there wasn’t the controversy with that.” last_img read more

St. Lucie County Schools delay start of school year

first_imgStudent in the St. Lucie County school district will now be starting their academic year two weeks later than the original proposed start date.The start of the academic year was set to begin on August 10th, however, officials in St. Lucie County have decided to push that date back to August 24th.“The additional two weeks gives time for the conditions in the county to improve and additional time for staff to finalize preparations for the school year,” St. Superintendent E. Wayne Gent said.Several other factors also contributed to the decision to delay the start of school including the delivery of protective equipment, the distribution of laptops for those who opted to continue distance learning, and the establishment of general safety protocols.“Our number one priority is to return to school safely, ” Gent said.Parents where given three options in which their children would receive their education this year.Students could either return to campus learning, continue distance learning, or attend the Mosaic Digital Academy, which requires a commitment of one year.The district is currently working on the revised calendar to accommodate the delayed start and will notify parents once that is available.last_img read more

Badgers shock Big Blue

first_imgGREG DIXON/Herald PhotoThe Wisconsin men’s soccer team opened its 2006 Big Ten season with a deserved and anticipated victory Sunday as it defeated Michigan 2-1 in a thrilling overtime clash at the McClimon Soccer Complex.Thanks to a little help from Michigan defender Chase Tennant, who lofted the ball over his own goalkeeper’s head for an overtime own-goal, the Badgers won their first Big Ten conference opener in over five years.”We only had two [Big Ten] wins last season. … We started 0-4,” junior Dirk Pearson said of his team’s 2005 conference performance. “We think we can win the Big Ten this year, and just starting off 1-0 is big. We let it almost get away from us there at the end, and we need to get a little more composure … but we have all the talent in the world.”After receiving a pass from freshman Brandon Miller, Pearson snatched the lead for the Badgers in the 76th minute when he dribbled past one defender and squeaked the ball past Michigan goalkeeper Patrick Sperry. Though not the most beautiful goal he’s ever scored, Pearson admitted he was pleased with his good fortune.”I was just trying to center it as I scooped it over the keeper,” Pearson said. “Luckily, from the angle I had, [the ball] went in. I’m not going to say there was a lot of skill there. … Obviously that was pretty lucky, but I’ll take anything that I can get at this point.”With only 14 minutes remaining in regulation, it looked as if Pearson’s strike would stand and the Badgers would hold on to their lead. However, with only 30 seconds left, Michigan senior Brian Popeny blasted a free-kick from 30 yards out past Wisconsin keeper Jake Settle for the late, late equalizer. Though initially demoralized, the bruised Wisconsin squad huddled together and found the strength in each other to not let another match slip out of its hands.With two minutes and nine seconds remaining in the first overtime period, the soccer gods were smiling on the Badgers as a long free kick by senior William Bagayoko was misplayed by Tennant into his own net from 20 yards out.”It’s often said that you create your own luck,” Wisconsin head coach Jeff Rohrman said. “And, you know — wet field, slick surface — when you put balls forward near the box and near the goal, things can happen and we got a break … it was obviously a great feeling to finally have something go our way today.”With an 0-2 overtime record after losing to both SMU and Creighton in extra time this season, Rohrman was more than happy with his team’s overtime performance and the resiliency they demonstrated.”I think the word ‘relieved’ comes to mind,” Rohrman said. “We should have closed [the game] out in regulation, but as disappointed as we were with … giving up the goal, I was really proud of the guys to put it together and find a way to win.”One aspect of Sunday’s match not to be overlooked was the play of Wisconsin’s stellar defensive line led by senior captain Aaron Hohlbein. Hohlbein and company shut down one of the nation’s top-striking duos, Peri Marosevic and Jake Stacy.”[Michigan] has two tremendous, dangerous forwards in Peri [Marosevic] and Jake Stacy,” Rohrman said. “They caused some problems with some great little combinations early in the game, but we talked about that at halftime, and I thought the second half was pretty good.”As the Badgers savor this sweet victory, they look forward to avenging a 2-0 loss suffered to in-state rival UW-Milwaukee last season when they take on the Panthers this Wednesday at the McClimon Soccer Complex.“[UW-M] is not a conference opponent obviously, but they’re definitely our biggest in-state rival,” Rohrman said. “We all want to get something rolling, and if we have confidence I don’t think anybody can stop us.”last_img read more
