Who should you support in the World Cup final?

first_img By Sam RobertsSo it’s been decided. We have a final between the two best sides in the competition. This Rugby World Cup has unfolded like a classic fairy tale. It occasionally twisted, as if to try to give us the slip, but ultimately we all knew where it was headed. The only two unbeaten sides in the competition progress to a showpiece match-up where one record must yield. We’ve never had these two royal rugby brethren in a World Cup final before, and yet they’ve both lifted the Webb Ellis Cup on two previous occasions. In beating the old foe on Saturday evening, third time will most definitely be a charm.But whom do you want to win? Unless of course you are from either side of the Tasman Sea, who to support come 4pm Saturday is a difficult question. There is very little between the sides, certainly not enough to use the word underdog safely and both have had enjoyed the amount of success that should not automatically warrant more. Both play an exciting brand of rugby and have players of similar skill-sets. From a neutral point of view, on which side to sit might call for something a little different.United in arms: Michael Cheika has the Wallabies playing for each other. Photo: Getty imagesAustralia represents a tricky backing; if you are English, supporting the Aussies is up there with French-kissing your sister. But let’s look at some of the reasons you might go Wallaby.Michael Cheika – As much as he looks like he’s been out most of the night, this man has got Australia firing on all cylinders in double quick time. Forget four-year cycles and looking to the future, Cheika’s got everyone singing from the same hymn sheet in under 12 months. He’s moulded a team who play for each other, defend like berserkers and bleed from the nose in unison. He’s the man who told Mario Ledesma (the Australian scrum coach who is a former Argentina international) to sing both anthems in the semi final: “Of course (he should), that’s (his) heritage, and I want him to love that.”Cheika effect: Michael Cheika looks on with coach Mario Ledesma. Photo: Getty ImagesCheika has integrated a lot of different personalities into the Aussie squad; he’s fostered a nerve and sinew able to withstand the sort of hammer blows that kept Wales out despite having two men in the bin, and yet had the perception and precision to strike so effectively against Argentina and England.He has a rugged charm that undercuts so much of the traditional Antipodean arrogance we seemingly dislike. He speaks Italian and French, and is the only man to win the major club cup competitions in both hemispheres (European Cup with Leinster and Super Rugby with NSW Waratahs). There is a lot to like about Cheika.David Pocock – Here is one big reason for you to be clutching a kangaroo come Saturday. Regarded by many as the finest player donning boots at this World Cup, Pocock does things very few others can on the pitch, but also off it. He is an activist against homophobia, outspoken on climate change and, as a man whose family was run out of Zimbabwe by violence when he was a child, now fronts a charity supporting farmers in the country of his birth. If that wasn’t enough, after winning the semi-final on Sunday, Pocock returned to his room to finish watching a natural history documentary. This boy is rugby’s own Shaolin Monk, just with massive biceps.Instrumental: Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell. Photo: Getty imagesPlaying in France doesn’t matter – Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell both play their rugby in France for Toulon. There was talk of neither being available for Australia because of their club rugby but Cheika was having none of it. He wanted the best players he could have going into the World Cup. And they have repaid the faith. Giteau’s reassuring hand in midfield has been instrumental and Mitchell’s beating of so many Argentine defenders on a late and decisive run last Sunday evening was enough to show that sense had prevailed. If your team has been affected by some of the themes in this paragraph, you may want to support Australia. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Head to head: Australia and New Zealand vie for a record third World Cup. Photo: Getty images Should neutrals support Australia or New Zealand in the World Cup final? We present the case for both teamscenter_img But what if you want New Zealand to win? How would you attempt to reason that one?Hansen’s humility – The All Blacks are wonderfully humble. They may play better rugby than everyone else but they never miss an opportunity to go round and thank the opposition. They join in prayer huddles, scoop up kids for selfies, stoop to lift fallen counterparts from the turf and generally want everyone to have a good time.A lot of this comes from head coach Steve Hansen. He has placed considerable importance on what many might refer to as ‘old school values’. He makes sure they always invite opponents into their changing room for a post match beer.Old school: New Zealand coach Steve Hansen. Photo: Getty imagesOnce the rugby has finished, the All Blacks do everything they can to achieve parity. What this has done for the likes of Namibia and Georgia is immeasurable. Hansen claims that every rugby player is like the other: “They are ordinary guys and you make lifelong friendships.” It is a wonderfully inclusive culture, one that is impossible to find fault in, and a very good reason to get behind the All Blacks this weekend.Gotta Love ‘Ruchie’ – There is no man who divides rugby public opinion more than Richie McCaw. He is enduring, extraordinary and apparently often offside. But few can dispute his effect on the modern game. In fact, players like David Pocock probably owe their mere presence in the final to McCaw’s ball-snaffling, turnover-tastic template. Rumoured to be retiring after this game, like others in this All Blacks side, you can’t really argue with a more fitting way to go out than lifting the cup.One last hurrah? Richie McCaw could bow out in style with victory on Saturday. Photo: Getty ImagesGet Carter – Despite being one of the most gifted players of his generation, this will be Dan Carter’s only chance at a World Cup final. The French got in his way in 2007, injury stripped him of the chance back home four years ago and now only Australia stand between him and the title. Having announced his international retirement post RWC, you wouldn’t begrudge Carter this chance. Not only does he play exceedingly good rugby, he is also absolutely lush. And this, as my wife will testify, is as good a reason as any to get behind him. Apparently. There you go; a few reasons to pick one of our wonderful contestants and, as our late Cilla would have uttered, it’s make your mind up time. But rest assured, whomever you chose, Green and Gold or All Black, this date is going to be unmissable.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

MPs’ report into Kids Company collapse blames trustees, regulators, government and auditors

first_imgThe Committee recommended that the Charity Commission do more to support trustees in their duties and also to investigate charities in order to prevent, detect and tackle mismanagement in charities. It added that the Committee must be given the resources and powers to do this.It also recommended that the Commission should aim for a higher public profile in order to provide reassurance about charities and their regulation and, where necessary, to attract complaints about charities.

Charities tend, if anything, to be more risk averse than other organisations. No normal charity would take such a reckless approach to its financial sustainability as Kids Company did.“The report rightly underlines the importance of strong governance through a board of trustees willing and able to exercise oversight of senior staff. Normal charities of this scale go to great lengths to ensure that they have experienced trustees with diverse skills, and that those trustees have limited terms of office to ensure fresh external perspectives are regularly brought to bear”. The report criticises Kids Company’s Board of Trustees for failing to protect the long-term needs of the charities beneficiaries. It accuses them of ignoring repeated warnings about the charity’s financial health, and failing to provide “robust evidence” of the charity’s outcomes.The MPs described the Trustees’ financial management as “negligent”, leaving the charity “charity unable to survive the predicted reduction in donations following the emergence of allegations of sexual abuse”.Camila Batmanghelidjh, who founded the charity in 1996, described the report as “a product of bias and rumour”. She stepped down from her role as Chief Executive in July 2015, and complained that the charity had been subjected to a “trial by media“.Bernard Jenkin MP, Chair of the Committee, said:“In the course of this inquiry the Committee has heard what can only be described as an extraordinary catalogue of failures of governance and control at every level: trustees, auditors, inspectors, regulators and Government.“The Committee has heard many positive accounts of the valuable work Kids Company did with some very vulnerable clients, and of employees who were inspired and motivated by the quality of support they could deliver to young people. This makes the Board’s failure to ensure the charity’s sustainability all the more tragic.“There has been a litany of allegations of inappropriate “therapies”, lavish spending and abuse of power within the organisation, and we hope that this episode highlights to all trustees that protecting the reputation of an organisation is a core element of good governance. To execute this, trustees must ensure they have the breadth of knowledge and experience necessary to understand their charity’s business”.Government and influence The Committee found that Ms Batmanghelidjh and Kids Company “appeared to captivate some of the most senior political figures in the land, by the force of the Chief Executive’s personality as much as by the spin and profile she generated for the charity”.The Committee found it “unacceptable that successive Ministers appear to have released funds on the basis of little more than their relationship with a charismatic leader, small-scale studies and anecdotes…”Bernard Jenkin commented:“Despite lacking robust evidence about the quality of the charity’s outcomes, value for money or governance, Kids Company attracted high profile support from senior Ministers throughout successive Governments, and tens of millions of pounds of public money have been handed to the charity over the course of its existence.  Government and regulators must learn from this. Proper mechanisms must be put in place to allow dispassionate, transparent, accountable decisions to be made about charity funding and regulation in the future”.Charity Commission and regulators Who is on PACAC?The MPs who sit on the Commons Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee are:Mr Bernard Jenkin (Chair) (Harwich and North Essex) (Conservative);Ronnie Cowan (Inverclyde) (SNP);Oliver Dowden(Hertsmere) (Conservative);Mr Paul Flynn (Newport West) (Labour);Rt Hon Cheryl Gillan (Chesham and Amersham) (Conservative);Kate Hoey (Vauxhall) (Labour);Kelvin Hopkins (Luton North) (Labour);Rt Hon David Jones (Clwyd West) (Conservative);Gerald Jones (Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney) (Labour);Tom Tugendhat (Tonbridge and Malling) (Conservative);Mr Andrew Turner (Isle of Wight) (Conservative)The BBC is to screen a report on the charity, its demise and the PACAC findings.

Berkeley, Calif., gears up to save post office

first_img‘No’ to Berkeley post office closing, Feb. 13.WW photo: Judy GreenspanBerkeley, Calif. — A special meeting of the Berkeley City Council’s Post Office Committee drew more than 100 people on Feb. 13 to speak out against U.S. Postal Service plans to close and sell the historic downtown Berkeley Post Office. Mayor Tom Bates made the unanimous position of city officials clear when he said, “The entire council does not support the closing of the post office.”Berkeley City Councilmember Jesse Arreguin urged people to attend the  Feb. 26 public hearing called by the USPS to unveil its plans for the closure and sale of the main Berkeley Post Office. Arreguin stated, “This is our building! We paid for it!”The speakers that followed documented similar struggles around the country to stop the closure of post offices and save union jobs. Dave Welsh, a retired letter carrier and San Francisco Labor Council delegate, said the post office closures nationally, along with the August elimination of six-day mail delivery, will mean the loss of tens of thousands of union jobs. Welsh and other speakers noted that the USPS is the largest employer of African-American workers and the job loss will critically affect the African-American community.According to Ying Lee, another organizer, the post office is also a major employer of women workers.For more information about the Feb. 26 hearing and the fight to save the people’s post office, check out or email [email protected]PrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
