Lions bolters: Eight players who could make New Zealand in 2017

first_imgSuch is the excitement around Garry Ringrose, that demands were made for the Leinster centre’s inclusion in Joe Schmidt’s Ireland squad in his first season of domestic rugby. At 6ft 2ins, the 21-year-old is an increasing physical presence – he’s packed on a few kilos over the past 12 months – with a solid defence, neat footwork and an ability to ghost outside defenders, which is a key trait of a natural 13.Rich potential: Garry Ringrose has been seen by man as the heir to Brian O’DriscollThe Dublin man was a nominee for Junior Player of the Year in 2014 and his centre partnership with Robbie Henshaw has the potential to make Leinster fans move on from Messrs O’Driscoll and D’Arcy. Ringrose also has the chance of impressing Warren Gatland in November, when Ireland take on the All Blacks over two Tests – the only home nation to do so before the Lions tour. If selected for those Tests, Ringrose will know that a career-best performance could be rewarded with a Lions spot. Stranger things have happened. From Will Greenwood in 1997, to Keith Earls in 2009, the selection announcement for the Lions tour always springs its surprises. And with eight months to go until Warren Gatland’s team is unveiled, its worth noting a few potential candidates, and preparing for the unexpected.EnglandElliot DalyOne of the swiftest players in the Premiership, an arcing run from Elliot Daly at outside-centre usually means one thing; five points. The 23-year-old has acceleration to match most international wingers. Indeed, Daly has been ‘the next big thing’ since 2010 when he thrust himself into the public consciousness yet he only made his Test bow last season, after Eddie Jones selected him for the Six Nations, getting a run out against Ireland.Catch me if you can: Elliot Daly possesses blistering pace wherever you play himThe centre is a lethal finisher, and genuine threat from anywhere on the field. He was selected for a Barbarians XV that faced off against the 2013 Lions in Hong Kong, and he has an outside shot of switching sides, next year. Although a 13, Daly is comfortable to play anywhere in the outside backs. And with a demanding mid-week schedule awaiting the Lions in New Zealand, Gatland might just need a jack of all trades. One who can kick goals from 55 metres…Nathan HughesHughes qualified for residency on June 27, just days after England’s 3-0 series triumph Down Under, and he was helicoptered straight into Eddie Jones’ provisional squad. The gargantuan No 8 has made a telling impression on Aviva Premiership fans ever since his inaugural season back in 2013, with outstanding performances, week-in, week-out from the base of the Wasps scrum.Great expectations: Nathan Hughes has the ability to be a huge Test starAthletic, powerful and deceptively quick, Hughes is a natural footballer whose name regularly appears at the top of ball-carrying and offloading lists. For all of his domestic prowess, Hughes is untested on the international stage. For now, the Fijian-born-back-rower stands in the shadow of Billy Vunipola, whose devastating form of late makes him favourite for the Lions No 8 jersey but given the opportunity, Hughes could challenge both Big Billy and Taulupe Faletau for a berth in the Lions backrow.WalesRoss MoriartyThe 22-year-old flanker has become a fan favourite at Kingsholm, having earned 63 appearances for the Cherry & Whites in four seasons. Part of the first ever England U20s team to win a Junior World Championship back in 2013, Moriarty who was born on Merseyside, but grew up in Swansea, pledged his senior allegiance to Wales two years later, and has featured in nine Tests, where he is now putting serious pressure on Dan Lydiate for the No 6 shirt.Dynamism: Ross Moriarty makes a trademark burst against Italy in the Six NationsMoriarty had a coming-of-age tour against the All Blacks in the summer and started off the season with a blockbusting performance against Leicester last weekend, showcasing his agression in the tight exchanges and handling skills in the wide channels, putting away Matt Scott. With a father, Paul, and uncle, Richard, renowned for playing on the edge with Wales, Moriarty’s physicality and pace, as a former full-back, could yet earn him a plane ticket.Sam DaviesThe Ospreys fly-half was in impeccable from the kicking tee in the first round of the Pro 12 last weekend, slotting a perfect nine kicks from nine, on the way to giving Zebre a 59-5 drubbing. After a season in which he was named ‘Young Player of the Season’ at the Pro12 awards, Davies is expected to kick on this year. A gifted footballer, he likes to mix his game up, attacking the defensive line with intent and rifling wiper-kicks and 50-yard touchfinders at will with a sumptuous left-boot.Cultured left boot: Sam Davies is maturing into a fine all-round No 10Like many fly-halves, his slight stature means his Achilles Heel is his defence but the former Junior IRB Player of the Year has time to improve that aspect of his game. As the son of former Wales centre Nigel Davies, Sam is expected to put club colleague Dan Biggar under serious pressure for the Welsh No 10 shirt. If he succeeds, it would boost his own chances of a unexpected call from a certain ‘Warren G’ in May. ScotlandJonny GrayHis older brother Richie was part of the successful Lions tour to Australia four years ago, and Jonny could fill the same role in Warren Gatland’s side next year. The 22-year-old, who is in his second year as captain for the Glasgow Warriors, has already won 25 Test caps and become an integral part of the Scotland boiler room.Classy player: Jonny Gray is a brilliant lineout operator and a tackling machine in the looseAt 6ft 6in and 119kg, Gray doesn’t lack in stature and shares similar characteristics to his celebrated All Black contemporaries Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick; a prodigious workrate and a tackle count that regularly reaches into double figures. The Glasgow Warrior spent three months in New Zealand developing his rugby in 2012, after being named the recipient of the John Macphail Scholarship – gaining knowledge of Kiwi forward play that could prove invaluable to the touring Lions team. With the likes of George Kruis, Alun Wyn Jones, Maro Itoje and Iain Henderson, Gray faces a mighty battle to tour.Tommy SeymourTommy Seymour has been Scotland’s first-choice wing since 2013 and he showcased his innate finishing ability in Glasgow’s opening Pro 12 match against Connacht last weekend, with two tries. If he can help propel the Warriors to Pro12 success, don’t bet against him being in with a chance of a window seat in Warren Gatland’s Lions squad.Boy can finish: Tommy Seymour is one of the most consistent wings in Test rugby2015 was something of a breakthrough year for Seymour as he played to a wider audience, scoring four tries in as many games at the 2015 Rugby World Cup and picking up last year’s Pro 12 Try of the Season award. With New Zealand’s Super Rugby powerhouses boasting wingers who provide a steady highlight reel of stellar tries, the inclusion of Seymour could act as a fitting counterbalance.IrelandUltan DillaneTwelve months ago, few had heard of Dillane outside the Sportsground in Galway, but the Parisien-born lock had a stratospheric 2015, turning in five senior appearances for Joe Schmidt’s men since making his debut against England in last season’s Six Nations. After starting his rugby career out on the flank, Dillane’s strengths are as a dynamic ball carrier who mixes technical skill with a fierce competitive drive.Take a bow: Ultan Dillane made quite an impact in last year’s Six NationsAfter impressing for Connacht last season and picking up a Pro12 winners medal for his trouble, the 22-year-old continued to mature in South Africa this summer and despite Connacht’s surprise capitulation at the hands of Glasgow, it’s unlikely to harm Dillane’s Test prospects. If Schmidt gives him more international exposure, Dillane has the potential to surprise us all.Garry Ringrose Fast-track: At 25, Nathan Hughes has the maturity and talent to make the Lions squad LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Lions are well-known for surprise packages so don’t be surprised if eyebrows are raised at Warren Gatland’s squad announcement.

Ginnie Mae Outstanding MBS Crosses $2T Threshold

She is a seasoned PR professional with an extensive background in content creation and corporate communications. Joseph holds a B.A. in Sociology and M.A. in Mass Communication, both from the University of Bangalore, India. She is currently working on two books, both dealing with women-centric issues prevalent in oppressive as well as progressive societies. She can be reached at [email protected] Ginnie Mae on Wednesday announced that issuance of its mortgage-backed securities (MBS) totaled $30.291 billion in December 2018. A breakdown of December issuance includes $28.166 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $2.125 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, which includes $1.977 billion of loans for multifamily housing. A total outstanding principal balance of $2.042 trillion is an increase from $1.913 trillion in December 2017. According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, Ginnie Mae is concerned about risks from nonbank lenders, whose share of home loans has ballooned since the financial crisis. The agency, for the first time in years, demanded that lenders improve their financial metrics before receiving full approval to continue issuing mortgage bonds backed by them. Ginnie Mae’s acting head, Maren Kasper, declined to name the firms but indicated that it included both large and small lenders. She also noted that these firms have been receiving short-term approvals in the meantime, the article stated. As reported in the publication, the agency also conducted stress tests of business partners, to check on their monthly cash-flow obligations under reduced loan production and increased delinquencies. According to the article, 34 percent of securities issued by Ginnie Mae were serviced by nonbank lenders in 2014—the share of which has now increased to 61 percent. Two main reasons—a cooling housing market and mortgage refinancing falling to its lowest level in 18 years—have raised concerns about nonbank lenders’ ability to meet their financial obligations. The article also pointed out that a failure on the part of these servicers and losses thereafter could end up becoming a burden on the taxpayer. While some in the industry believe that a robust post-crisis regulatory framework will help manage the challenges, others are skeptical as the system has never been truly tested. Ginnie Mae I MBS are modified pass-through mortgage-backed securities on which registered holders receive separate principal and interest payments on each of their certificates. These include single-family, multifamily, manufactured home and project construction loans. Ginnie Mae II MBS are modified pass-through mortgage-backed securities for which registered holders receive an aggregate principal and interest payment from a central paying agent.

Driver arrested after nearly hitting girl getting off school bus, police say

first_imgCourtesy Josephine Kirk-Taylor(HOUSTON) — Police said they arrested a man who was seen speeding past a school bus last month and nearly running over a young girl.Julio Coreas, 18, was arrested and charged with reckless driving — a Class B misdemeanor — on Wednesday, exactly two weeks after video surfaced of him zooming down a residential street and narrowly missing 5-year-old Melina Kirk-Taylor as she exited the school bus, police said.Melina’s mother, Josephine Kirk-Taylor, was recording the moment from the sidewalk across the street with hopes of capturing her daughter’s smile as she returned from her second day of kindergarten.In the video, the yellow school bus arrived at the girl’s home and the red stop sign popped out — signaling to drivers behind the bus and in front of the bus to stop. That’s when a blue Toyota Corolla flashed past the bus, ignoring the stop sign.“No! Wait! Wait! Wait,” the mother screamed. “Stop!”Thankfully, Melina heard her mother’s warning and she was not harmed.“My daughter could have been dead if she’d taken one more step,” Kirk-Taylor said at a police briefing Wednesday. “I want to give thanks to the people who don’t even know me and they shared this video so that my daughter could receive justice.”Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said his team started the investigation with “little hope of holding someone accountable,” but they managed to find the culprit with the help of Kirk-Taylor’s persistence.“Thank God that little girl reacted to what I believe is the reckless indifference and the willful disregard for a state law that’s designed to protect the most precious cargo of any vehicle on our roadways and that’s our children,” Acevedo said at the briefing. “She was able to save her own life though her own actions because if it wasn’t for her self-awareness I believe that we might be having a different conversation today.”After watching the video, Acevedo said he believes the driver made a “conscious decision to disregard the flashing lights and the stop sign.”“Our initial response wasn’t as good as it should have been, but the mom stayed persistent,” he said. “We’re going to continue to target people who pass school buses. Our traffic enforcement division is actually following school buses in unmarked cars, and they’re calling out violations.”Kirk-Taylor was thrilled the department managed the arrest. She hopes it inspires others to follow traffic rules at all times.“I really hope that we as a community can pay attention and save our children by following the traffic laws so that this doesn’t keep recurring,” Kirk-Taylor said. “Children have lost their lives due to these matters, but I hope this is a lesson to all reckless drivers to just stop and let the children cross the street. It takes 10 seconds.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
