Jarryd Hayne’s on-field disputes with teammates are OK, says coach Neil Henry

first_imgHayne was constantly bickering with halfback Taylor as the Titans recorded their second win of the season, but this didn’t faze Henry.”They’re always fighting for the ball, they’re competitive guys and if Ash wants the ball and Jarryd wants the ball they’re going to argue a little bit,” Henry said.This and Hayne’s blow-up at teammate Dan Sarginson for a dropped ball had pundits questioning the attitude of the former NFL player.Former Kangaroos Mark Gasnier and Justin Hodges said they feared Hayne’s attitude during the match might have a negative influence on the club’s young squad.”Those guys Ash Taylor, (Tyrone) Roberts they can learn bad habits from him,” Hodges told Fox Sport’s Sunday Ticket.”I saw a play where he went down the short side, hit the winger (with a pass), he’s dropped it, (Hayne has) blown up and carried on about it.”You can’t do that because those young guys will get scared of that and obviously fall away in games.”But this does not worry Henry, who was impressed with Hayne’s return on and off the field after missing five weeks through injury.”People are never satisfied with what Jarryd does, the benchmark is so high that they can find a way to have a crack at him about something,” Henry said.”He did what he had to do, he had a nice set of touches down the short side in particular.”The pass with Vaha (Leivaha Pulu) and knocking that ball back in from the kick which was a big change in momentum for us.”Henry further backed his fullback to put together a string of good performances in the hope of earning a place in the NSW Origin side.

David Warner out for Australia with broken finger for ‘two to six weeks’

first_imgWarner was man of the match for his 109 from 120 balls, his sixth one-day international hundred, which moved Australia to the top of the three-team table.But he took a blow to his left index finger while fielding and an X-ray has revealed a fracture.”We will assess the situation over the coming days to see if the injury requires a surgical option but should that not be the case then David is likely to be available to return to play in somewhere between two and six weeks,” said Australia team doctor Geoffrey Verrall.A decision on Warner’s further participation in the competition will be made in the next few days, said a Cricket Australia spokesman.However, with the tournament ending on June 29, it seems likely that the 29-year-old’s tour is over.”It’s obviously disappointing to be sidelined given the form I’ve been in and given the important stage the tri-series is at, but it’s always important to look at the positives,” said Warner.”This downtime, however long or short it is, will give me the chance to freshen up and spend quality time with my family after an intense period of action, with a home summer that was followed by trips to New Zealand and South Africa, plus the World Twenty20 and the Indian Premier League.”AFPlast_img read more

Rains Hit Red Light Again

first_imgNow the much expected Rainy Season has once again hit the nation to the woe of traders in the nation’s largest food market, Red Light, selling food and other wares in filth and squalor.The Red Light Market, situated in the business district of Paynesville, plays host to hundreds of Liberian and foreign owned businesses, as well as petty traders that feed greater Monrovia with the critically needed goods and services.The majority of the business people at the Red Light Market are women based in Monrovia, while many others come from rural Liberia with an array of needed goods for the urban markets.Many of the traders and rural business people that are doing business at the Red Light Market in Paynesville endure incredible hardships in the midst of mud and garbage.According to some of the traders, sanitation companies contracted to collect and dispose the volumes of garbage and other waste have over the years miserably failed to meet the expectations of the support partners.Sadly, the traders argued that despite their extensive suggestions and recommendations advanced to sanitation companies and support partners for the inclusion of themselves (traders) in the collection of the garbage, such recommendations have allegedly fallen on deaf ears.The disenchanted traders told the Daily Observer Thursday that year in and year out, the Red-light Market in Paynesville has encountered perennial hardship in the midst of the rotten garbage and mud.They also explained that owing to the strategic location of the Red-light Market in Paynesville, it serves as the epicenter for sustained commercial activities outside Monrovia.“We want all the sanitation companies and support partners to redesign the current strategies of garbage collection and include all the traders and foreign and Liberian owned businesses at the Red Light Market.”The Red Light Market’s business people noted that the Liberian Government and Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) “must wake up from their slumber and swiftly address” the perennial challenges of the business district outside Monrovia.In separate interviews conducted by the Daily Observer with some of the affected business people and traders at the Red-light Market this week, they called on the PCC administration to be proactive in the collection and disposal of the rotten garbage.Foreign businessman Khalid B. Mustapha said the extensive efforts aimed at the sustained collection and disposal of the garbage should be done on a daily basis at the Red-light Market.“As a foreign business person, I’m ready to fund and work with the PCC’s sanitation workers in order to enhance the collection and disposal of this rotten garbage from this market area,” Mr. Mustapha assured.Another foreign businesswoman, Fatoumata Diallo, underscored the need for the PCC’s sanitation workers to work out plans with sanitation experts that would practically respond to the critical sanitation crisis of the Red-light Market.“I can personally assure Liberians and partners that some of us are ready to give support against this never ending menace at this big Red-light Market in Paynesville,” Madam Diallo stressed.A Liberian owned businesswoman Jeanette Browne told the Daily Observer that the PCC’s sanitation workers must be provided the critical working tools that would be responsive to current reality on the ground at the Red-light market in Paynesville.Madam Jeanette stressed the need for the PCC and support partners to intensify the monitoring and evaluation component of the sanitation projects of Monrovia and its environs.In a related development, traders, foreign and Liberian owned business owners have sounded an urgent appeal to all sanitation companies and support partners to step up some aggressive approaches to the sanitation crisis looming at the Red Light Market in Paynesville.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Linden Utility Co-op recognised for providing over 50 years of service

first_imgThe Linden Utility Services Co-op Society Limited (LUSCSL) was hailed for providing over 50 years of electricity services to the Linden community on the occasion of National Cooperative Week 2018, at an event hosted outside the Co-op’s compound last week.A section of persons gathered at the event in recognition of the Linden Utility Services Co-op Society Limited’s 50 years of serviceThe event, hosted by the Department of Cooperatives in collaboration with the Guyana National Cooperative Union Limited and the Guyana Cooperative Credit Union League, paid tribute to the Co-op, which was recognised for being one of the oldest Cooperatives in Guyana.National Cooperative Week 2018 was observed under the theme “Cooperatives: Sustainable consumption and production of goods and services”.Speaking at the event, which was attended by numerous employees and officials, Compliance Officer within the Department of Cooperatives at the Social Protection Ministry, Ann Abigail Arthur, congratulated the LUSCSL, highlighting that it started off with the primary goal of providing electricity, but went further by thinking outside of the box and has since developed an electrical shop and documents centre to serve the community.She further noted that the LUSCSL has played a major role in providing employment in the Linden community. Since its registration over 50 years ago, Arthur said the Co-op has progressed tremendously in providing electricity to the Wismar community and has been true to this year’s theme. She further stressed the important role electricity played in education and the household and the role of the Co-op in ensuring provision of this. Additionally, Arthur noted that the membership of the LUSCSL, which supplies Wismar with electricity, can keep growing to include a wider cross-section of the community.Linden Mayor Waneka Arrindell, in her address, stressed the importance of educating and letting Lindeners understand electricity consumption and conservation, as she congratulated the management and Board of the LUSCSL. She said it was evident how the Cooperative has grown over the years. The Mayor encouraged the Co-op’s team to look at youth initiatives and see what more could be done to expand its services. She further shared her hope that the LUSCSL would showcase itself more in the media so that students could learn and understand what was happening on the ground as well as its functions.LUSCSL Secretary George Joaquin, in giving an overview of the Co-op, reminisced on when it started in 1960, as 25 workers approached the then bauxite company Demba to establish an electricity company on the Wismar shore. It was then known as “Coop Society”, but was later named the “Wismar Christianburg Electricity Supply Coop Society Limited” prior to being renamed the Linden Utility Services Co-op Society Limited. The Co-op now has over 5000 members or consumers and over 60 employees.last_img read more
