Barbarians take late win as they beat Wales in Cardiff

first_imgWednesday Jun 8, 2011 Barbarians take late win as they beat Wales in Cardiff As was mentioned on Saturday with the Seru Rabeni big hit on Gavin Henson post, the Barbarians edged Wales 31-28 in a scrappy, yet at times entertaining, game at the Millennium Stadium.While a lot of the focus was on Henson, his performance was mixed with both good and bad. Ospreys coach Scott Johnson said afterwards that he isn’t the player he once was, but he can still make it back there with some hard work.It was another center who did prove some critics wrong though, albeit on a small scale. Former rugby league star Willie Mason, who is on his way to Toulon, showed touches of brilliance as he dwarfed opponents while getting his hands out of the tackle, with two passes in particular that led to Barbarians tries. While he looks rather out of place in the backs, it’s clear that the man is talented and given some time, should make a decent impact.The Baa-baas had led 19-14 at half time, but Wales came back to lead 28-19, before the Barbarians scored, including a brilliant late effort from Isa Nacewa, to take the result. It’s their second in two weeks, beating England last weekend at Twickenham.Not only did they score five tries to four, but it was probably a fair result considering the way the game flowed. Wales were missing a few key players and they did well to give some youngsters an opportunity, but there’s plenty of hard work ahead for them if they hope to make inroads when facing Fiji, Samoa, and South Africa in their pool at the World Cup later this year.“It was frustrating, and we are gutted, to be honest. We let it slip again, and we just cant switch off in these games,” said flanker Dan Lydiate. “No-one likes losing. We had five new caps and Stephen reaching 100. We really wanted to win for those boys its not good enough.“We are going out to the World Cup to do a job, and we cant have lapses in concentration. We need to play for 80 minutes in every game.” Time: 06:37ADVERTISEMENT 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.

WSJ: ‘The Climate for Coal Just Got Even Chillier’

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Wall Street Journal:It’s been a pretty good 18 months for the coal industry following the disastrous price crash of 2015, but on Tuesday miners got a big lump in their stockings.BHP, the world’s largest mining company, announced it is reconsidering it’s membership in the U.S. Chamber of Congress, a skeptic on the latest global climate deal brokered in Paris, and may quit the World Coal Association, the industry’s lobby group. BHP cited the WCA’s support for abandoning Australia’s proposed Clean Energy Target as one reason for its preliminary decision to bow out.BHP’s action is largely symbolic but it still smarts coming from one of the grande dames of the mining world. It also comes as Rio Tinto, BHP’s big rival down under, is rapidly selling down its coal assets.The move is, of course, partly about public relations. But big companies like BHP and Rio ultimately make their decisions based on the bottom line, and BHP’s latest move is another sign that the business case for coal as a power-generation fuel is rapidly weakening—despite efforts by the Trump and Turnbull administrations to prop it up.Nearly 20% of BHP’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda) in fiscal year 2017 came from coal, and return on capital employed was a healthy 23%, higher than for all its other major commodities except iron ore. But most of that juice comes from metallurgical coal—used to make steel—and not thermal coal for power generation. BHP estimates that every $1 change in met coal prices will move its 2018 Ebitda by $43 million, compared with $18 million for every equal change in thermal coal price.Both types of coal, like most commodities, have done well in the past two years—roughly doubling in price since the end of 2015. But their outlooks are radically different. Large quantities of met coal will be needed for the foreseeable future for steel production, and good alternatives are lacking. Thermal coal, on the other hand, must compete for power-sector market share in a world awash in cheap natural gas and ever cheaper renewables.More ($): The Climate for Coal Just Got Even Chillier WSJ: ‘The Climate for Coal Just Got Even Chillier’last_img read more
