Unspecified injury brings an end to Paul Willemse’s RWC expectations

The Paul Willemse is returning to Montpellier after injury skippered his World Cup hopes with France Paul Willemse’s hopes of forcing his way into the France World Cup squad have been dashed. 

Paul Willemse's

The South African, who secured French citizenship last November and was swiftly propelled into the Six Nations, had been training with Jacques Brunel’s squad as one of their six reservists along with 31 players officially chosen to travel to Japan. 

The second row would have been hoping that an injury to a lock would open a route for him to be promoted in time for the finals which start in September. 

Instead, he has been struck down by injury himself, leaving Brunel to source a replacement reservist – Toulon’s Romain Taofifenua to help the chosen squad prepare. 

A brief French federation statement on Wednesday didn’t specify the injury that forced Willemse out, their media release instead only confirming that the forward would return to his club Montpellier and rehabilitate with them.  

“Following medical examinations, Paul Willemse is lost and leaves the training for the Rugby World Cup 2019 to reconcile with his club.”

The previous South African under-20 player, who held his side to World Cup glory in 2012, left the Bulls to play for Grenoble in the Top 14 in summer 2014. 

He then made the switch to Montpellier the following summer and while he went on to qualify for France under the three-year internship rule, his Test level ambitions were hampered by French rugby president Bernard Laporte insisting that every player qualifying under residency must also have French citizenship. 

This only came through for Willemse last November. He was then called up by Brunel and made his debut in the Six Nations defeat to Wales.

  “Once I knew it was possible to play for France it became my 100 percent goal.”

Willemse featured in all five matches in the tournament, starting twice, but he failed to make it into Brunel’s 31 for Japan, leaving him training with the France squad as one of a half-dozen reservists on their standby list.

Dylan Hartley may Need Surgery on Knee Injury Before RWC: Eddie Jones

Dylan Hartley may need surgery on his “grumbly” knee before the Rugby World Cup, with England head coach Eddie Jones left to “wait and see” how his co-captain responds to treatment as he prepares to start the Six Nations tournament without him. Still, this decision is pending. environment

Dylan Hartley may Need Surgery on Knee Injury Before RWC: Eddie Jones

Dylan Hartley 32-year-old will miss England’s inaugural games against defensive Grand Slam champions Ireland and France after misery a knee injury shortly before Christmas, with Jones putting the injury down to the years of wear and tear that Hartley has gone through for club and country.

Yet the prospect of Hartley missing the entire Six Nations cannot yet be ruled out as the hooker must see how his knee reacts to “passive rehabilitation”, though a pessimistic Jones admitted that he might need surgery at some point in the future if the plan fails to work.

“It’s just a matter of how fit he is,” Jones said of his plans to bring Hartley back into the squad once he is ready. we just have to have a look at him. The first thing is he has to get healthy – he’s not healthy yet. Then he’s got to get fit. We’ll just wait and see. But at this stage, we’d be hopeful that he’ll be back at least for the Wales game.

Dylan Hartley

“He’s 32 and he’s probably played 300 games for Northampton and he’s played 90-odd for England, plus a few for Worcester, so it’s just worn and tear. That’s all it is. He might eventually need an operation to clean it up, but at this stage, they’re doing what they call passive rehab and we’re confident that he should be fit to play in the Six Nations.”

But the England camp will be sweating on how Hartley comes through his treatment. If attempts to get him fit to face Wales on 23 February on the third weekend of the championship prove unsuccessful, a decision will need to be taken on whether to have arthroscopic surgery immediately which would rule Hartley out for around six weeks or manage him through the rest of the season before experiencing surgery in the summer ahead of the World Cup.

A six-week lay-off from the end of February would rule Hartley out of the rest of the Six Nations and also the start of April, which would include the East Midlands Premiership derby with Leicester Tigers as well as a potential European Challenge Cup quarter-final, with Saints currently in the mix to qualify for the last eight ahead of this weekend’s group stage finale.

Brave Blossoms shows new uniforms for Rugby World Cup 2019

The Japan Rugby Football Union has unveiled the new jersey of its national team, which could help the Brave Blossoms to achieve a feat at the next Rugby World Cup at home on Thursday.

The basic white and red design has remained the same as that of the 2015 World Cup. The jersey maker, Canterbury of New Zealand Japan Inc., has prepared three different types of jerseys that will support the player-based performance of their positions.

There is one for the first row, one for the second and last row and the other for the back row. The sportswear company previously provided two different types to the team (for the front and back).

Front row, second row, and rear row give players who rely on durability an appropriate sense of fit, as they have to compete with their opponents in scrums during games. The backs will wear a lighter jersey and silhouette more difficult to grasp for the defenders.

“First of all, it is light to put it on, which gives you a proper meaning, but it does not interfere with your movements,” said fast winger Kenki Fukuoka at a press conference in Tokyo.

“I need to take full advantage of my speed, and it’s extremely important that I get caught (by a defender) or not. “I’d like to play a game wearing this as soon as possible.”

According to Canterbury, the resistance of the jersey has been improved by 9% for the front jerseys and 8% for the backs compared to the uniform used in 2015.

Similarly, the last jersey is 12% lighter for the attackers, while the jersey of the back is 7%. lighter. The jersey is also attached with slip resistance on the chest to allow players to hold the ball and avoid blows.

“I thought it was a little too tight when I first put it on,” longtime national team hooker Shota Horie said of the new uniform. “But the chest area gives you a moderate amount of looseness.”

Canterbury said the concept of the new jersey was “Kabuto” – a samurai warrior helmet. The red bands were designed with the kabuto coat of arms as the subject.

The alternative jersey of Japan is blue. The Brave Blossoms, who have recorded the most wins (three) at the 2015 World Cup in England, have run a series of training camps in Miyazaki since the end of last month.

The jersey will make its official debut as Japan face Fiji at the Pacific Nations Cup at the Kamaishi Recovery Memorial Stadium in Iwate Prefecture on July 27th.

“It’s obviously a big decision but I’ve had a good inning, it’s time to finish and I’m looking forward to one more run out on the weekend and hopefully finishing on a high.”

“The pain I have been experiencing from rugby, in my daily life, simply isn’t tolerable but it’s important to me that afterward all the work I have put in, I and my team run out one last time and finish on my own terms.”

“I have so many memories from over the years and could stay here all day listing them but the biggest thing I will miss is that camaraderie with the boys, the buzz of running out and playing, and the feeling in the changing rooms afterward a win.”

“I’m very proud of all I have achieved in my profession, chiefly captaining the Blues in the earlier three periods. None of it would have been possible without my parents and the 2005 Grand Slam always stands out as Mum and Dad were both his support.”

“I’m very thankful to Peter Thomas, the entire club and its brilliant supporters for whatever they have given me over the years, and also Gruff Rees and John Mulvihill for making this transition from playing to coaching a smooth one.”

“I am hanging up my boots with the club in a strong position and although missing last season’s European Challenge Cup was personally devastating, I was immensely proud of the culture, environment, and legacy we have built.”

Although Jenkins is second on the Blues’all-time appearance list, trailing only Taufa’ao Filise, with 194 matches, he has won 129 Wales caps and five for the British and Irish Lions during two of his three tours. The loosehead prop played a pivotal part in four Six Nations titles, including three Grand Slams, and in his one season away from Cardiff Arms Park, won the Heineken Cup with Toulon.

Gethin Jenkins

Wales’ greatest capped player, a legend for country and section, will be hanging up his boots this weekend.
Cardiff Blues chairman Peter Thomas has led the tributes to Jenkins for his“massive contribution” to rugby and he will remain part of the setup.

Gethin Jenkins said “We have been so lucky at Cardiff Blues to have Wales” greatest topped player as one of our own and to have promoted from the huge amount he has contributed over the last 13 years.

“He is a player of immense quality and a brilliant leader who sets the standards both on and off the field.”

“Although it is unsatisfactory that his playing career is coming to an end, we are very pleased that all of his experience and expertise will be retained in the Cardiff Blues family.”

“From myself personally as chairman, and everyone at Cardiff Blues, I cannot thank Gethin enough for the massive contribution he has made not only to ourselves at Cardiff Blues but Welsh and world rugby generally.”

Jenkins will now take up a coaching role within the Cardiff Blues academy as he transitions to life afterward playing.

But first comes Sunday’s home clash against Zebre and head coach John Mulvihill is delighted the 37-year-old will have the opportunity to play one last game at the Arms Park.

Mulvihill wish to add more, “Gethin is a legendary of Welsh rugby player, a great servant for both club and country and it is fitting that he finishes his career in front of his home crowd at Cardiff Arms Park.

“Afterward early discussions it was always my intention to have Gethin decide when he would like to call an end to this playing career.”

“He will be a massive loss to us in a playing sense but his presence and intellectual property as a coach will be a great asset to us going forward.”

“Afterward 13 periods at Cardiff Blues, at the top of his game, this weekend marks the end of an era at the club. We all wish him and his young family much health and happiness in the future and his teammates will make sure they do whatever and whatever for him to go out a champion on this weekend.”

Who will be the Winner of RWC 2019?

Ireland beat Scotland in the 2018 Six Nations Championship and are the best prospects in Europe, but unfortunately, have to go through South Africa or New Zealand in the quarter-final.

Ireland has a grand slam Six Nations and a series win in Australia but traditionally have fared poorly at the World Cup and have never passed the quarter-finals.

In the past, they have suffered from the World Cup’s length stretching their squad thin. But they now have unprecedented depth, illustrated by their best club, Leinster, who put out a “B team” most weeks in club rugby and usually win.

But while this may be their best chance in years, it might also be their worst. Whoever wins this pool or comes second will have to play New Zealand or South Africa in the quarter-finals.

Ireland is ranked second in the world at the moment and is a match for either side, so there will be a big team casualty before the quarter-finals are over.

Scotland is the 2nd best team in the world at home but barely make the top ten away from home. Last year, they lost at home to New Zealand by five points. That is their only loss at home since November 2016: since then, the Scots put 50 points on Australia, and have comprehensively beaten England, Wales, France twice and a number of other teams in that time. Ireland is the only losing team to finish within a score.

But in the midst of this rich home run, they have pummeled away to England (61-21), Wales (34-7), lost to Fiji and become the first tier-one team to lose to the USA. There is little to mitigate the bizarre difference in their home and away from.

A neutral venue may help. But they do face Japan, who are not to be underestimated. Either way, they will play South Africa or New Zealand at some point.

Japan is at home and their last game in the pool is against Scotland so it could be all to play for. The tickets for the Rugby World Cup Final Tickets are in high demand, even compared to the ‘big game’ of Scotland vs Ireland, according to the ticketing website.

With the fans behind them and Scotland’s poor away form, there may be an upset. Forecast Japan, Samoa, and Russia to exit in the pool stages with the first two putting up admirable fights.

South Africa’s Jesse Kriel celebrates victory over New Zealand. The Springboks have their mojo back.

New Zealand will be the favorites for every World Cup from now until the sun explodes and engulfs us all. But South Africa highlighted weaknesses in their decision making by winning in New Zealand.

Beauden Barrett, 2017 player of the year, failed to even attempt a crucial drop goal to beat South Africa.

Under the cosh, he is not so good, the critics said. One bad decision does not make a bad player and he has learned his lesson – do not expect a repeat in the knockout stages.

They have star quality in abundance, experience in their first and second choice players and their coach know how to win a World Cup. South Africa were in die stretches a year ago, but they have rebound their swagger.

They now look like the only team capable of beating New Zealand regularly. So, the best thing for both teams are that they are in the pool together. Whoever loses will still progress. It is bad news for everyone else because one of the two heavyweights will not be knocked out the tournament. Everyone else will have to go through one or the other to reach the final.
