Hoani cooks up a storm

first_img Not just a talent on the pitchLife on the rugby pitch may be the key ingredient for all of Rob Baxter’s squad as they prepare for the new 2011/12 season, but off it Exeter Chiefs prop Hoani Tui has been cooking up a bit of a storm.The New Zealander has used the off season to not only bag some well earned rest and relaxation after a demanding first season in the Aviva Premiership, but he’s also took the opportunity to brush up on his love of cookery thanks to Michael Caines, one of Britain’s most acclaimed chefs.Under the watchful eye of Caines and his team of executive chefs, the 27-year-old forward has worked closely in conjunction with the Rugby Players’ Association (RPA) to set up a number of days working in the kitchen at the Abode Restaurant in Exeter.It has, according to Tui, been a memorable experience and one which he hopes to continue well into the future.  He said: “I got involved with Michael and the Abode through the RPA. I know I am not always going to play professional rugby forever, so I thought I would check out something outside of playing and try something a bit different.“I spoke to Josh [Frape] from the RPA and he got me in touch with Michael and Julian Wilkinson, the general manager at the restaurant. There were a few discussions and they said I could come in and work. I’ve always been really interested in cooking and working with different foods, so it didn’t take long to get me in here.”Already Tui – who has previously played in New Zealand for Wellington and also Calvisano in Italy – has been hard at working helping to rustle up a number of scrum-ptious meals at the highly-rated and popular Devon venue.“I’ve learnt quite a bit already, especially the delicate touches to things,” said Tui. “Playing in the forwards it’s not quite like that, you have to work hard and graft and you’ve got to have a bit of roughness about you. But making little dishes like I have, you have to be able to show that little bit of finesse.”One man impressed by the efforts put in by the Chiefs man is Caines himself, who took time out of his busy schedule to work alongside Tui in the heat of the Abode kitchen. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Having himself overcome a number of challenges during a distinguished cooking career, Caines says: “At 25 I thought I was going to be invincible, but then I had a car accident and I lost one of my arms. It’s at times like that when you realise you are vulnerable and it’s the same for players – they can have a bad accident in training or in a game and that can be their careers over.“I think it’s great that rugby and the RPA are looking after their players and making them think about a trade for once they finish. A lot of guys can easily finish playing and then have to look to try and pick something up. At least with schemes like this they are thinking about the future and learning new skills.” “I think it’s great that Hoani has come in with us and that he has a genuine interest in food,” added Caines. “He’s been getting stuck in working with the guys on both morning and evening service, so he’s had a good introduction to what happens here.“Working with him you can see he’s not intimidated by the environment at all – he’s really enjoyed it. The guys here have said he’s cracked on really well and you can see he’s used to working within a team, which is what we are here in the kitchen. We’re a tight knit unit, so in a lot of ways there is quite a lot of symmetry between ourselves and the Chiefs.”A keen supporter of the Chiefs, Caines says he was impressed by what he saw from Tui and his team-mates last term and is confident they can again prosper amongst English rugby’s elite this season.“I go to watch the Chiefs when I can and I am heavily involved with the Exeter Foundation, which is the club’s official charity. The Chiefs did an awesome job in their first year and I think everybody has a lot more respect for Exeter now.“Last season they very nearly took some top scalps and they pushed some big, big teams close. They gave us a lot of good memories last season and they have a lot of talent and a lot of belief in the side, so it will be great to see how they get on next season.”Caines has also given his backing to the ideas of the RPA to get more players looking to their futures once their careers come to and end.

France edge Ireland in scrappy Six Nations round two match in Paris

first_imgMonday Feb 15, 2016 France edge Ireland in scrappy Six Nations round two match in Paris France scored a second half try to claim a 10-9 victory and their first win over Ireland in five years when they came out on top in Paris on Saturday. The only try of the match was scored by Maxime Medard with ten minutes remaining at the Stade de France.France are now two wins from two, while Ireland, who drew 16-16 with Wales in the opening round, are yet to record a victory. They do however have one point, due to the tied match.A meeting with Wales on February 26th is next for France, while Ireland face England the next day.Coach Guy Noves paid tribute to the team’s tenacity and decision making when it counted most.“I think the players won, not the coaching. That’s down to Guirado (captain, Guilhem). He chose to take a lineout rather than a penalty and after successive scrums there was a wonderful try on the back of it,” Noves said.“I don’t want to hear that changing the props was the winning strategy. It’s a victory for all of the coaching staff. We worked very well this week and we looked at a lot of things that we didn’t do very well last week.“I salute the players’ ferocious will to impose their game and not let Ireland dictate play.“There’s a lot of solidarity between the players. The players who were in difficulty last week in defence had a huge game. If you add what we did well last week with the attitude we showed today, I think we’re starting to get on the right track,” said Noves.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House in El Chorrillo / Abarca + Palma

A single-family house located in the area of Navidad, VI Region, in the rural sector of El Chorrillo, Pupuya. It is a longitudinally developed house of one floor that faces a pine forest near a soft hillside ordering all the enclosures in front of it. This closeness to the pine trees is a decision to conserve an existing natural space on the lot, a shadowy space that, through a perimeter of trees, builds a space where the common areas of the house seek to connect through terraces.Save this picture!© Andrés MaturanaSave this picture!Architectural PlanSave this picture!© Andrés MaturanaThis longitudinal volume has only a simple movement on the roof that causes a hierarchical difference between the common space of the house, that space where all the family activities, the kitchen, the dining room and the living room, are located, all connected to a terrace inserted in the forest of pine trees and which in turn connects with a continuous corridor that turns the entire house. Constructively, the house is characterized by its front corners that seek to free the view through the use of glass as the predominant material, reducing the structure to a minimum, generating two diagonals in each direction of the volume that replace the presence of partitionings or any opaque material that limits the view.Save this picture!© Andrés MaturanaSave this picture!IsoSave this picture!© Andrés MaturanaThe house is built in wood and SIP panels generating a modular coordination in all its construction elements.

We feel very comfortable with the direction the search is headed right now,” Woodall said. Tentatively, Woodall said, a site visit to the district the candidate is from will take place April 22. “We’re waiting to hear back from the candidate to make sure that it follows their timeline of how they want to break the news to their community,” Woodall said.

Just come and enter.“We’ll have jingle bells there for the kids that want to participate in the Jingle Bell Jog,” Shehane said. “They will parade with their bells on and then participate in the Jingle Bell Jog later in the program.”The parade will take a short Main Street route and disband at Salem Baptist Church on South Main Street. The town of Brundidge is steeped in Christmas tradition.Many of the traditions date back 50 years or more. Some traditions are breaking new ground.On Tuesday, Dec. 2, the city of Brundidge will celebrate the coming of Christmas in the old tradition and the new. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The youth of Salem Baptist Church will present a live Nativity Scene on the church grounds that will bring awareness to the real reason for the season, Shehane said.Everyone will then be invited to the Bass House for the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree and Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick will make a grand arrival and take a few minutes to speak to all the good little boys and girls on his way back to the North Pole.Then, it’s off to the We Piddle Around Theater for songs and stories of the Christmas season for children ages 2 to 10.“The Children’s Christmas Storytelling is something new and we are excited about it,” Shehane said. “There will be a short program for the children that will include Christmas songs led by Lenny Trawick and Henry Everett and a Christmas story surprise.”Tickets for the Children’s Christmas Storytelling are free but required.“Seating at the We Piddle Around Theater is limited so tickets are necessary,” Shehane said. “The program will last about 20 minutes.Tickets may be picked up at Southeast Alabama Gas Company on S.A. Graham Blvd. or reserved by calling 735-2789.Children must be accompanied by an adult but only one adult will be admitted with each family of children. Dixie Shehane, “Christmas in Brundidge” committee chair, said Christmas will be ushered into the city in much the same fashion that it has been in the memory of most residents.“The highlight of the Christmas in Brundidge will be the lighting of our string Christmas lights that have been a part of Christmas in Brundidge for about 50 years,” Shehane said. “Not many people can remember when these beautiful, old-fashioned lights were not a part of Christmas in Brundidge.”As the lights show the way to Christmas in the city, the season will also be welcomed with the jingling of bells and the tooting of horns as the 2008 Christmas parade marches down Main Street.
