LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Mixed fortunes: Biarritz celebrate while Toulon look dejected after the final whistle in the Amlin Challenge Cup finalBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellA RATHER drab and uninspiring final with Biarritz able to ensure their Heineken Cup qualification thanks to the boot of Dimitri Yachvili in wet conditions at the Stoop. They were fortunate, however, that Toulon couldn’t get the ball to Jonny Wilkinson in the final minutes or he could have slotted another of those drop-goals to take the game into extra-time.Key momentThe officials’ failure to spot Yachvili’s professional foul on his opposite number Sebastien Tillous-Borde in the final ten minutes meant Toulon were not awarded a justified penalty – and perhaps a one-man advantage if the yellow card had been brandished – that would have taken them into the lead. Instead, play moved back into Toulon’s half and Biarritz slotted the penalty that gave them the victory.Boot boy: Dimitri Yachvili slots a penaltyStar manDimitri Yachvili is the heartbeat of this Biarritz side and his boot not only contributed all of his side’s 21 points but kept Toulon pinned back in their own half, especially in the first period. His raking kicks kept the pressure on Toulon and le petit general again inspired his team to victory.Room for improvementJust a hint of creativity would have sparked this game into life. Yes, the conditions weren’t the best and the game was very stop-start with errors and penalties, but it would have been nice to see either team keep the ball in hand on an occasion or two rather than resorting to relentless ping-pong.Toulon need to look at their discipline, indiscretions giving Yachvili plenty of chances to kick at goal and resulting in two of their players being sent to the sin-bin. If they want to keep their Top 14 title hopes alive, they will need to tighten up ahead of next weekend’s play-off against Racing Metro. NOT FOR FEATURED In quotes – winnersBiarritz captain Imanol Harinordoquy: “This is fantastic. This season has been very hard for us but we’ve now won a title. Normally it’s Jonny Wilkinson who gives us a hard life but this time Dimitri gave Toulon a hard time.”Down and out: Jonny WilkinsonIn quotes – losersToulon captain Joe van Niekerk: “I’m very disappointed. The boys showed a lot of heart out there, but our discipline let us down; playing 13 against 15 meant it was an uphill battle.”BIARRITZ: Iain Balshaw; Taku Ngwenya, Jean-Pascal Barraque, Damien Traille, Dane Haylett-Petty; Julien Peyrelongue (Marcelo Bosch 73), Dimitri Yachvili; Yvan Watremez (Sylvain Marconnet h-t), Arnaud Heguy (Benoit August 71), Eugene Van Staden (Francisco Gomez Kodela 60), Jerome Thion (Erik Lund 71), Pelu Taele, Wenceslas Lauret, Benoit Guyot (Talalelei Gray 51), Imanol Harinoroquy (capt).Pens: Yachvili 7.TOULON: Benjamin Lapeyre; Alex Palisson, Mathieu Bastareaud, Matt Giteau, David Smith; Jonny Wilkinson, Sebastien Tillous-Roberts; Eifion Lewis-Roberts, Sebastien Bruno (Jean-Charles Orioli 51), Carl Hayman, Christophe Samson, Kris Chesney (Dean Schofield 58), Pierrick Gunther, Steffon Armitage, Joe van Niekerk (capt).

Previous articleUSDA Will Defend Trade Aid at WTONext articleU.S., China Reach Tentative Truce on Tariffs Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter USDA Friday Reports, “Anybody’s Guess” Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Friday Reports, “Anybody’s Guess” SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 27, 2019 Extreme weather challenges, which started months ago, have caused a record-slow planting pace and huge questions about crop quality. As of June 23, USDA reports 96% of the nation’s corn and 85% of the nation’s soybeans are planted.While planting is finally nearing the finish line, both the corn and soybean crops are behind in development. Just 89% of the corn and 71% of the country’s soybeans were emerged as of June 23. The historical averages for emergence in late June are 99% for corn and 91% for soybeans.On Friday, USDA will release the annual Acreage report. Historically, this report is a strong indicator of final planted acres. But, that’s not likely the case this year, says Joe Vaclavik, founder and president of Standard Grain. “These surveys for acreage were taken during first two weeks of June, and I think only 67% of corn acres planted as of June 2,” he says. “So, I don’t know how to report can possible be accurate in regards to acreage.”Mike Silver, with Kokomo Grain, told HAT, “It is anybody’s guess what those numbers are going to look like.” He says it is likely there will be an increase in ending stocks numbers The average trade guess for the corn ending stocks is number is 5.332 BB and the soybean number is 1.861bb. Silver added there is likely to be a good deal of skepticism about the planted acreage numbers.Chip Flory, host of AgriTalk, agrees. “USDA collected data until June 17, but a lot of that data was in before June 17,” he says. “I just have a feeling that [Friday’s report] is going to include ‘intentions’ to stick with corn. The market was telling producers to try to stick with corn. Therefore, if they were going to fill it out honestly, weren’t they going to say, ‘I’m still going to try to plant corn.’”In the March Prospective Plantings report, USDA forecast 92.8 million acres of corn and 84.6 million acres of soybeans. Earlier this month in the June World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report, USDA took corn acres down to 89.8 million and barely lowered soybean acres. Ahead of the report, Paul Georgy, president and CEO of Allendale, says analysts expect the acres to be adjusted to 86.66 million acres of corn and 84.35 million acres of soybeans.Farmers should be prepared for some volatility on Friday, Vaclavik says, “The acreage numbers are not likely to be accurate, and tomorrow’s report is just the start of discovering what the real acres are.” Todd Hubbs, University of Illinois agricultural economist, agrees tomorrow’s report may provide a weak indication of corn and soybean acreage this year. (Read his recent farmdoc Daily articles: Soybean Stocks and Acreage and Corn Acreage and Stocks.) “Uncertainty about corn acreage looks to remain in place through the summer,” he says. “The June acreage estimate may indicate the scale of acreage shifts into soybeans but prevented plant acres may not be known until later in the year.”Source: Ag Web and HAT SHARE

The jury disagreed after ten and a half hours of deliberations, thereby bringing the curtain down on an 87-day trial.The 51year old sat in the dock with his legs crossed and arms folded. His left hand appeared to be shaking as the verdicts came in.He has been remanded on continuing bail ahead of his sentence hearing which is due to take place in a fortnight.
