Kiwi teams stay in Australia as leagues try to defy virus

first_imgLast Updated: 20th March, 2020 10:57 IST Kiwi Teams Stay In Australia As Leagues Try To Defy Virus The New Zealand Warriors rugby league team has decided to indefinitely base itself in Australia, separating players from their families, in the hope of playing FOLLOW US New Zealand Rugby is continuing to work on plans for a domestic competition involving its professional teams after the suspension of the Super Rugby competition. Those plans again seem likely to be affected by restrictions on public gatherings. NZR has been determined to put together an alternative competition, to help cash-strapped clubs and its ailing broadcast partner Sky Sports.   Image credits: AP  LIVE TV The Warriors played Newcastle in Australia in the opening round of the league last weekend and were due to play Canberra in Auckland on Saturday. That match will now be played, technically as a Warriors home match, on the Gold Coast. George said while the decision to remain in Australia was tough on some players, there was universal agreement they should stay. “We have an opportunity to show the world that in the face of adversity we can stand tall, we can be leaders and we’re going to take it on,” George said. “The game is really struggling at the moment and I feel like our guys thought if they walked away, it might have started to crack the game down.” Even as the weekend’s second round of NRL matches unfolds, there are doubts the league can continue much longer in the face of increasingly stringent restrictions on public gatherings and social contact. New Zealand’s only professional soccer team, the Wellington Phoenix, has also based itself in Australia to continue playing in the A-League. The team will play the remainder of its regular season matches in New South Wales state. The team finds itself in a difficult position because it has several imported players who cannot travel to New Zealand if the team has to return there. A spokesperson said the Phoenix are “currently investigating the situation and its impact on our players and staff.” Press Trust Of India WATCH US LIVEcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US COMMENT Written By The New Zealand Warriors rugby league team has decided to indefinitely base itself in Australia, separating players from their families, in the hope of continuing to play in Australia’s National Rugby League as the coronavirus crisis continues. At a meeting on Thursday players said that with the support of their families they will play matches in Australia as long as the league continues. Australia and New Zealand have both sealed their borders to travelers other than citizens and permanent residents. That makes it impossible for players’ families to join them in Australia or for the Warriors to host matches in New Zealand.Kiwi teams stay in Australia “The NRL need us now, we’re there,” Warriors chief executive Cameron George told a news conference Thursday. “We’re standing tall and we’re very proud of doing that for our fans and our families.”I can’t emphasize enough the resilience this group is showing in times like this. Any one of us sitting here right now, if we were told to go live in another country away from your families, unplanned and for an indefinite period, I’m not sure how many people would stand up for that challenge.” First Published: 20th March, 2020 10:57 ISTlast_img read more

Officer in DUI case denies charge

first_img “I was not drunk,” he said. “I don’t drink.” He said the incident began when he swerved Sunday afternoon to avoid hitting another motorist who slammed on his brakes. An officer who passed by witnessed the near collision and pulled Gossh over, he said. When Gossh identified himself as an officer and said he had a gun in the car, he said the officer stuck his finger about an inch away from his nose and said, “You’re drunk. You’re drunk. You’re drunk” before ordering him out of the car and up against a fence. He said he blew a 0.00 into a Breathalyzer and also gave a urine test, the results of which were not immediately available. He said he was cited to appear in court and is considering filing a wrongful arrest lawsuit against the department. A department spokesman declined to comment, saying the case involved personnel issues. ARLETA – An off-duty LAPD officer who arrests DUI suspects for a living found himself on the other end this weekend when he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, police said this morning. Brian Lawrence Gossh, 27, was booked into the Los Angeles County Jail on misdemeanor DUI charges and released. There were no injuries, said Officer Karen Smith, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. He was arrested about noon Sunday on Van Nuys Boulevard at Arleta Avenue, police said. In an interview before noon today, Gossh, who’s assigned to the Valley Traffic Division, called the charges “ridiculous.” Gossh was featured in a Daily News story published in 2000, when he was a cadet at the Police Academy. In it, he said he’d previously worked as a waiter and in the hotel, travel and commercial real estate industries in his native Austin, Texas before coming to L.A. As a gay man, he said, he was attracted by the domestic partner benefits offered by the LAPD. “I knew the LAPD had close relationships, like a family,” he said at the time. “When I was growing up, officers helped me; every time there was a call, they were there to help me. And I want to give that back to the community.” For up-to-date news and observations on crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
