Rugby World Cup: Portugal as a whole is depending on you

What Samuel Marques, Portugal’s hero in qualification, heard from Raffaele Storti as he got ready to kick Os Lobos into the Rugby World Cup 2023?

You need steely nerves and a reliable method to be a top-notch goalkicker.When he kicked the last-gasp penalty that secured his team’s place at Rugby World Cup 2023 as winners of the Final Qualification Tournament, Samuel Marques demonstrated that he possesses both attributes.

The scrum-half has been a standard wellspring of focuses for his country with his exact objective kicking since he got back to public group obligations in 2021 following an eight-year break, yet none were a higher priority than the three he kicked against the USA with the clock in the red in Dubai last Friday.

A word to the wise

Portugal faced the possibility of missing out on another Rugby World Cup until Marques, 32, came on to level the score at 16-16.

As he lined up the kick, some of his teammates dared not look, while others couldn’t look away from the career-defining moment.It was a mixture of the two feelings for Raffaele Storti, whose try-scoring exploits have been just as influential in guiding Portugal to France the following year, but he was certainly not speechless.

“I couldn’t stop looking for a second. I was so excited and nervous at the same time that I went to Sam and told him the whole of Portugal was counting on him,” the winger revealed.

“Probably it wasn’t the smartest thing to say as he had already enough pressure to handle, but it just slipped out of me, I said it without even thinking.

“Fortunately, he is a player with a lot of experience and knows how to handle the pressure well.”

Capability briefly Rugby World Cup looked impossible when the USA, driving by three, were five meters from the Portugal line with five minutes to go.

Kapeli Pifeleti had stopped Storti from scoring an early try, and USA captain AJ MacGinty had converted three penalties to Marques’ two for a 16-13 advantage.

Yet, Portugal, and Marques particularly, kept their nerve to have their spot in Pool C close by Grains, Australia, Fiji and Georgia at the following year’s competition.

“Personally I am very excited about the World Cup especially because we’ll have the opportunity to compete against the best teams in the world, with a lot of visibility. This will allow us to show all our qualities, individually and as a team, which I am sure it will surprise a lot of rugby fans,” added Storti.

 “To finally have the opportunity to compete against these “giants” in such big stadiums, with a crowd full of Portuguese fans, it is everything we fought for. We’ll have the opportunity to show all our qualities and, hopefully, bring some joy to our supporters with wins.”

Key objective

Storti, who has scored 13 tries in 18 tests, insists that Portugal won’t just go to France to fill in the numbers. The goal is to automatically qualify for the Rugby World Cup 2027 by finishing in the top three pools.

“We are clearly the underdogs of the group since we’re not even a fully professional team. However, we’re not thinking about that, we’ll think match by match, and prepare for each game like it’s a final and give our best.

“We’ve already proven we are a competitive team that can play positive rugby against top teams as well.

“Examples of this were our draw against Georgia in Tbilisi in the Six Nations B (Rugby Europe Championship) in 2022 or the narrow loss against Japan in 2021.

“We are not going to the Rugby World Cup just to have fun, we have objectives and the third place is the main one.”

Qualification for their first Rugby World Cup since 2007 and only their second ever was celebrated long and hard before they returned home to Portugal to receive a heroes’ welcome.

“It was unforgettable, I have never seen the team so happy,” said Storti, about the post-match scenes.

“In Dubai, we all went partying together, staff and players, and it was really funny. It was clear that we had become more than a team throughout the years, but really good friends.”

A new era

Os Lobos were still competing in the second tier of Rugby Europe’s competition structure when Storti joined the senior Portuguese national team in 2019 after being a member of the country’s successful U20 team.

They didn’t get promoted to the Rugby Europe Championship until the following year, when head coach Patrice Lagisquet made them a force again.

Storti attributes Lagisquet’s appointment as a masterstroke to the former France winger’s ability to clearly define the team’s direction and garner support from all parties involved.

“Before Patrice came, the national team wasn’t competitive and there was not a goal ambitious enough to make players forget about their other duties.

“As rugby is amateur in Portugal, players had other jobs and priorities. Also, some of the pro-players playing abroad didn’t want to risk getting injured or being dropped out from their clubs, so chose not to represent Portugal.

“However, with the arrival of the new staff and the promotion of Portugal to the Six Nations B, a new goal and hope emerged – Rugby World Cup 2023 qualification.

“When Patrice came in he not only brought a lot of knowledge and experience to the group but also different rules and demands of the players.

“In my opinion, it was this collective ambition, together with the new expertise brought from the new staff (Lagisquet, Herve Durquety, João Mirra, Luis Pissarra) that were the keys to our success.”

Portugal bid to become 20th Rugby World Cup 2023 team

The ultimate goal of the four teams participating in the Final Qualifier Tournament in Dubai is to secure the last available spot in France for the Rugby World Cup 2023 that will be held in the following year.

The four teams will compete in a round-robin format over three match days, with the team with the most points winning. Hong Kong, Kenya, Portugal, and the United States are all hoping to get into Pool C and become the 20th team in the competition. There, they will face Wales, Australia, Fiji, and Georgia.

Following their participation in the 2007 Rugby World Cup, which was also held in France, Portugal will be looking to win their second Rugby World Cup.

Os Lobos players have been performing well recently while playing for the Lusitanos in the Rugby Europe Super Cup, where their team won the Western Conference.

In the Super Cup, Manuel Cardoso Pinto has scored seven tries and Pedro Lucas has scored six, while Rodrigo Marta (Dax Rugby/Nationale), Raffaele Storti (Béziers-Hérault), and José Madeira (Grenoble Rugby) have all impressed in France.

The first match for Portugal will be against Hong Kong at 4 p.m. local time (3:30 p.m. CET), followed by a 1 p.m. CET match against Kenya on Saturday, November 12, and a 4:30 p.m. CET match against the United States on November 18.

Speaking to World Rugby ahead of the tournament Portugal captain, Tomás Appleton, said: “We feel pretty confident, we have been talking about it for a long time and our objective is to qualify for Rugby World Cup.

We look at these three games as three finals but we have to start with the first game against Hong Kong, we are very focused on that one. Qualifying would mean the world to the rugby community back in Portugal, they have been waiting for it for a long time. We just want to be present.”

The six matches can be watched live on the Rugby World Cup 2023 website or on television in some markets.At the Sevens Stadium, supporters who are already in Dubai can also attend the games for free.

After the game, Romania head coach Andy Robinson said: “We were 26-0 up and then let the Netherlands back into things. When we play well we are good, but we switch off at times and it is an example for us.

“Now we will build towards the repechage with some games in the straw hat and then it will come around in November – as a squad we need to be fitter, but we can grow from here and we will get better.”

The Netherlands has yet to win in nine outings since recurring to the second tier of European rugby for the first time in 19 years in 2021. But head coach Zane Gardiner is self-assured. That they will continue to grow as a team with continued contact with higher-ranked teams.

“We just need time at this level, we can contest just now in patches of games, but need to compete for 80 minutes at a time,” he said.

Georgia secure a fifth straight title

Meanwhile, Georgia motorized their way to a fifth consecutive Rugby Europe Championship title, beating fellow European Rugby World Cup 2023 finalists Spain 49-15 in Tbilisi.

RWC 2023

Fellow number 14, Akaki Tabutsadze soon hit back for Georgia with his 11th try in as many competitions and flanker Otar Giorgadze added additionally to make the half-time score 18-8 to the hosts. Spain needed to score first to get back in the argument. And they did that nine minutes into the second half when hooker Santiago Ovejero rumbled over, Ordas adding the extras to make it a three-point game.

However, Spain failed to worry the scorers thereafter and Georgia stepped up a gear to finish as convincing winners. An Abzhandadze consequence made it 21-15 before Captain Merab Sharikadze raced under the posts to put further daylight. Between the teams. Tabutsadze and Giorgadze both got their next tries of the match soon after and it was left to hooker Giorgi Chkoidze to round off an excellent win.

“We played well when it mattered in this game and it means everything to win the trophy again. Spain is a good side, they played well, but we played better and now we start building up to the World Cup next year,” said Georgia head coach Levan Maisashvili.

Spain’s head coach Santiago Santos was phlegmatic in defeat. “We have to congratulate Georgia, they performed better and deserve to be champions,” he said.

“It is disappointing to lose this game, but the bigger picture is that we are going to the Rugby World Cup and we cannot wait to grow the sport in our country.”

Romania could face exclusion from Rugby World Cup 2023 due to an ineligible player

Spain had originally fit for next year’s Rugby World Cup through the European pathway. But after they were found to have fielded an unentitled player in two matches. They have docked 10 points. As a result, Romania is fit for the World Cup. While Portugal will play in a final qualification tournament, as Spain dropped from second to fourth place in the European requirement table. To know more about 
For Scotland Vs, Romania Tickets click here.

 However, the Spanish book El Mundo believes Jason Tomane, a New Zealand-born Romania international, played for his adopted country in World Cup finalists without being eligible to do so.

Jason Tomane may have been ineligible to play for Romania.

Tomane made his debut for Romania in June 2021 and played in competitions against the Netherlands. Spain, Portugal, and Georgia in European World Cup qualifiers. According to an Instagram post made by Tomane’s wife, the Romanian international lived in Hungary for three months in 2019.

This would make Tomane unentitled to play for Romania. As it was during his three-year residency qualifying period, in which players must not spend more than 60 days outside of the country they are aiming to become qualified for each year.

As Tomane played in four Rugby World Cup finalist matches for Romania, the country could be docked 20 points. Which would see Portugal qualify directly for next year’s competition in France. While Spain would progress to a final qualifying tournament.

Spain is currently appealing World Rugby’s decision.

Spain has docked points for a very alike reason, as South African-born Gavin van der Berg was deemed ineligible to play for Spain as he spent a lengthy period outside the country throughout his three-year residency qualifying period.

The Romanian Rugby Federation brought Van der Berg’s suitability to World Rugby’s attention. After they had originally been unsuccessful to qualify directly for the 2023 Rugby World Cup. Spanish rugby officials are appealing to World Rugby over Van der Berg’s case. And have referenced New Zealand-born Ireland stars Bundee Aki and James Lowe in their appeal.

They are now likely to also bring Tomane’s situation to World Rugby’s attention. As the messy European World Cup qualification saga rumbles on.

How Qatar wound up facilitating the Football World Cup

Many people are wondering how a small Gulf country with little football history ended up hosting the sport’s biggest event, which is currently underway in Qatar.

Qatar became the first host nation to lose the tournament’s opening match, losing 2-0 to Ecuador on Sunday. The nation had never played in a World Cup tournament before, let alone hosted one.

It took the nation 12 years to make its World Cup debut, during which time Qatar’s status as host nation sparked controversy within the football community and beyond.

Football World Cup

‘New lands’

In 2010, Qatar was chosen ahead of bids from the United States, South Korea, Japan, and Australia to host the 2022 World Cup.

It encountered a number of challenges during the bidding process because FIFA, the governing body of football, raised concerns in technical reports. These included the region’s extreme heat during the summer, when World Cup tournaments are typically held, and the absence of any existing infrastructure.

Even though the reports called Qatar’s bid “high risk,” the country still won the final round of voting with 14 votes to eight from the United States.

At the time, Qatar promised to make the world “proud of the Middle East” as the first country from the region to host the tournament, while then-FIFA President Sepp Blatter welcomed the prospect of football’s showpiece event going to “new lands.”

“I’m a happy president when we speak of the development of football,” he said.

Twelve years later, Blatter is more critical.

Earlier this month, he told Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger: “Qatar is a mistake … the choice was bad.

“It is too small of a country. Football and the World Cup are too big for it.”

Blatter said FIFA amended the criteria it used to select host countries in 2012 in light of concerns over the working conditions at tournament-related construction sites in Qatar.

“Since then, social considerations and human rights are taken into account,” he said.

With a population of three million, smaller than that of Connecticut, Qatar has invested billions in its football infrastructure in preparation for the 2022 tournament.

Football World Cup

However, there are still concerns regarding how Qatar obtained the right to host the World Cup.

In a statement to CNN, Qatari officials called the US Department of Justice’s claim that high-ranking officials accepted bribes as part of the voting process to select Russia and Qatar as the tournament hosts for the 2018 and 2022 events “false.”

For a number of years, the DOJ has been looking into allegations of corruption in international soccer, including FIFA. More than two dozen people have been found guilty, and some cases are still pending.

In April 2020, FIFA issued a statement in which it stated that it “supports all investigations into alleged acts of criminal wrongdoing regarding either domestic or international football competitions and will continue to provide law enforcement officials investigating such matters with full cooperation.”

“FIFA is closely following these investigations and all related developments in the legal processes ongoing in the United States and other parts of the world.

“It is important to point out that FIFA has itself been accorded victim status in the US criminal proceedings and senior FIFA officials are in regular contact with the US Department of Justice.”

US prosecutors gave FIFA the status of a victim because they thought the world governing body of football had been almost taken over by a few corrupt people.

Human rights criticism

Prior to the World Cup, Qatar’s human rights record was also in the news, particularly in relation to the well-being of migrant workers.

Seven new stadiums, new hotels, and expansions to the country’s airport, rail networks, and highways have all been built in preparation for the World Cup, despite the country’s lack of infrastructure when it was given the hosting rights.

Amnesty International says that this has made Qatar’s migrant workers, who make up 90% of the workforce, more important.

Human rights criticism
Human rights criticism

Beginning around 2010, numerous traveler laborers have separately confronted deferred or neglected compensation, constrained work, extended periods in sweltering climate, boss terrorizing, and a powerlessness to give up positions occupations as a result of the country’s sponsorship situation, common freedoms associations have found.

However, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) said the health, safety and dignity of “all workers employed on our projects have remained steadfast,” with “significant improvements” made around workers’ rights.

The International Labor Organization has noted Qatar’s labor reforms, such as a non-discriminatory minimum wage, which Qatar is the first country in the region to implement. FIFA president Gianni Infantino also stated to CNN Sport’s Amanda Davies that he has observed “great evolution” in Qatar’s labor reforms.

In the years leading up to the World Cup, Qatar’s state-backed discrimination against LGBTQ people has also been criticized.

In the country, men-to-men sex is against the law and can result in up to three years in prison. A Human Rights Watch report that came out last month documented instances of Qatari security forces arbitrarily arresting LGBT people and giving them “ill-treatment in detention” as recently as September.

A statement issued on behalf of the SC and distributed to CNN stated that the nation was committed to “an inclusive and discriminatory-free” World Cup and cited the country’s hosting of hundreds of international and regional sporting events since winning the competition in 2010.

“There has never been an issue and every event has been delivered safely,” the statement read.

“Everyone is welcome in Qatar, but we are a conservative country and any public display of affection, regardless of orientation, is frowned upon. We simply ask for people to respect our culture.”

The decision to stage the World Cup in November and December rather than June and July, as is typical, is perhaps the most obvious indication that this tournament differs from others.

LGBT people

Although temperatures are still expected to rise above 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) later this week, the switch has been forced by Qatar’s scorching summer heat.

Other changes to the tournament’s structure have been made more recently.

On Monday, captains from seven nations were informed that they would receive yellow cards if they wore armbands advocating for inclusion and opposing discrimination. FIFA made the announcement on Friday that no alcoholic beverages would be sold in the stadiums.

“All 32 captains will have the opportunity to wear this armband” during the World Cup, FIFA stated earlier on Monday, announcing that it had brought forward its “No Discrimination” campaign, which also features a branded armband.

FIFA’s hardware guidelines express that “for FIFA last contests, the skipper of each group should wear the commander’s armband given by FIFA.”

The legacy of this World Cup will only become clear over time, but if the past few days, months, and years are any indication, it is likely to be complicated and contentious.

Argentina eye Rugby World Cup success as Agustin Creevy insists no grudge with Jamie Ritchie ahead of Scotland game

Argentina Rugby World Cup: Having beaten New Zealand and England away, and defeated Scotland over the route of a Test series. It has been a momentous year for Argentina, one they will seek to end on an elevate with victory at Murrayfield on Saturday.

The former Wallabies boss is the only coach to win together the Heineken Cup and Super Rugby

But their ambitions make bigger beyond isolated triumphs and veteran hookers. Agustin Creepy sees no reason why they can’t be real challengers at next year’s Rugby World Cup in France.

Once international rugby’s outliers, the Pumas’ contribution to the. Rugby Championship over the past decade has known their exposure to the world’s best and under the new tutelage of. Michael Cheika, they have found a coach who knows how to win significant Test matches. All that’s missing, suggests Creevy, is a small consistency.

Cheika’s qualifications are top-notch. The former Wallabies boss is the only coach to win together the Heineken Cup and Super Rugby. Asked anywhere Cheika has made the biggest dissimilarity, Creevy points to his head. “It’s confidence, I believe.

The Argentine forward was sent off for head-butting the Scotland captain as playing for London

Argentine forward was sent off for head butting the Scotland captain as playing for London Irish against Edinburgh in the previous season’s Challenge Cup

He puts the focus on our winning mentality, believing in our team, and imagining we can win every game. And that is the most important thing – since in terms of physicality. I think we are at the same level as the top teams.

Because arriving in Europe the Pumas have beaten England 30-29 at Twickenham and lost 20-13 to Wales, and. Creevy knows they require putting together a run of results if they are to imitate. Or surpass their achievement of 2007 and 2015 when they reached the Rugby World Cup semi-finals.

We win a really significant game, against New Zealand for example. And then the next weekend we lost against New Zealand by 40 points. Or perhaps we won against England other than lost against Wales when we might have won. So, these types of things we must center on as a team, to be more consistent.

Scotland’s captain was playing for London Irish against Edinburgh in the previous season’s Challenge Cup

Saturday’s match at Murrayfield will see Creevy security device horns with. Jamie Ritchie for the first time as the Argentine forward was sent off for head-butting. Scotland’s captain was playing for London Irish against Edinburgh in the previous season’s Challenge Cup. Creevy doesn’t expect to meet any residual bad feelings. “No, but it is alright. It was an action in the game, it clearly was not appropriate, of course. Emiliano Boffelli tells me he is a good guy and I do not have a problem with anybody.

Creevy says Argentina will bend on Boffelli’s inside knowledge this week. He does not know precisely what is going to happen. But he perhaps has some details and small things we can pay notice to,” said Creevy. Who rates the Edinburgh winger as one of the most excellent in the world. In terms of aerial aptitude and goal-kicking.

World Rugby Men’s Rankings powered by Capgemini given a major shake-up

Argentina has been rewarded for their 30-29 win over England at. Twickenham on Sunday with a two-put rise in the World Rugby Men’s Rankings powered by Capgemini.

Los Pumas have climbed from eighth to sixth receiving 1.80 points for the victory. Only their second at Twickenham – and have overtaken Australia and Wales in the procedure.

New Zealand and Scotland were the additional top 10 teams to improve their positions in victory, with the. All Blacks moved up one put to third at South Africa’s expense following their persuasive 55-23 win. Against Wales in Cardiff.

South Africa had left for Dublin looking to knock Ireland off their rest. At the top of the rankings. But the home side edged a marathon test 19-16 and stay at number one.

Next England Rugby coach After Rugby World Cup 2023

The 48-year-old Kiwi, who goes by the self-created nickname “Razor”. Wants to take two sides to a World Cup in the upcoming. One would be his native New Zealand, obviously enough, but what about the other?

“I’ve said many times that the All Blacks is my preferred choice but if it didn’t work out that way, you know, England’s got so much potential, it’d be a pretty special job,” Robertson said.

“There is potential to any international job, I’ll make that clear because a few are coming up [after the 2023 World Cup]. My first choice is to be at home. And then what other potential, if it is England, Scotland or Australia or any other team that’s out there, you’ve got to look at it.”

Eddie Jones will be sendoff the England head coach’s job at the end of next year. And in the Rugby Football Union’s search for an heir, it would be no surprise if they have already sounded Robertson out.

Indeed, RFU chief decision-making Bill Sweeney has recently rowed back on his suggestion that he wanted an Englishman to replace Jones, opening the door for the likes of Robertson and Ronan O’Gara, the Irish head coach of European champions La Rochelle.

Robertson has been aided by O’Gara in London for the past week as the Barbarians are ready for their match with an All Blacks XV at ­Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. And he is residual for the hastily decided games with Harlequins and Bath. To know more about England Vs Samoa Tickets click here.

“I’m in constant interaction with the NZRU,” said Robertson, who has one more period to run with the Crusaders, “but you consider any chance in international football because there’s not many of them and it’s a four-year cycle.”

He says he admires coaches who have handled a second team in adding to their own, name-checking Graham Henry, Steve Hansen – and a certain Australian. “Eddie’s a prime example,” Robertson said – and he met Jones in Sydney in July when England was on tour and ­Robertson released in for the weekend.

“He [Jones] asked me 10 queries and I ­managed about one,” Robertson said.

“We talked a bit of footy.”

England could be looking for an entirely new coaching panel in 2024

Robertson is a stated fan of ­former England assistant coaches Steve Borthwick and Mike Catt. Now with Leicester and Ireland correspondingly. And while he fights the offer to appraise England in detail, he said: “Oh, god there’s massive ­potential and some great young players coming through.”

He sees the Six Nations as an arena to put your job on the line every week. “I went to Cardiff on the weekend,” he said, “and the passion and the hyp. And everything behind it and – how am I going to put this very diplomatically – there’s a lot of opportunity to be successful.”

If the RFU chooses it needs ­charisma as well as rugby nous, post-Jones, this surf-loving Kiwi could provide it. Robertson left his home in laid-back Mount Maunganui on New Zealand’s North Island to make his vocation in Christchurch, ­learning from coaches Wayne Smith, Robbie Deans, and Hansen.

He did the foreign travel thing, playing for clubs in Northern Ireland, Scotland, France, and Japan. He had 23 caps in New Zealand’s back row from 1998 to 2002.

“Well, you’ll get me,”

Robertson said when asked what he would bring to international rugby.

“I like to bring energy every day and I enjoy what I do. My job is to create a situation everyone loves coming to, and get the best out of themselves.”

England reached the final in 2019

The Red Rose endured another unsatisfactory Six Nations campaign earlier this year, but they recovered with a battling 2-1 series win in Australia before losing to Argentina.

With less than a year to go before the World Cup begins. Jones is hoping to additional develop his squad in time for the tournament.

“There is a cluster of teams at the top of world rugby,” he said.

“We want to break that cluster. To do that we have to have several different ways to play the game.

“This next 11 months is to get enough equipment in our armoury to play anyway.

“England rugby is traditionally about power rugby, winning the set-piece, smashing down the gain-line, but we have to learn from the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

“In the final, we came up against a side with more power than us, and we could not beat them at that game.”
