Rabbitoh Fuimaono’s debut to remember

first_imgPhoto: NRL (Rabbitohs rookie Tyrell Fuimaono in his debut match against the Tigers in Round 10). Fuimaono only joined Redfern this year after starring in the Eels NYC set-up and featuring for the Junior Kangaroos.Following some indifferent form from South Sydney of late, coach Michael Maguire rang the changes ahead of their meeting with Wests Tigers on Friday night and one of those was calling on Fuimaono to debut and the Patrician Brothers Blacktown product didn’t disappoint with 97 metres and six tackle busts.Speaking to NRL.com after his debut, Fuimaono revealed he found out about his debut in front of all his teammtes.”[Maguire] actually didn’t pull me aside individually – we were in a team meeting and he said there was going to be a few changes in the team and he just dropped it on me so I was completely overwhelmed,” Fuimaono said.”I teared up a bit in front of everyone in the hype of it all. I was over the moon and to be able to come out and get the win on top, I couldn’t be happier.”Despite a few players having to make way for the inclusion of himself plus the returns of Aaron Gray and Robbie Rochow, Fuimaono said his teammates were ecstatic for him.”Everyone’s pretty close, they were all giving me the look and saying they were happy for me and can’t wait for me to be able to play with them,” he said.”I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity. It’s a privilege to play alongside these guys I’ve looked up to for so long and it’s a dream come true.Fuiamono, who has been playing well for South Sydney’s Intrust Super Premiership team the Bears, praised the team-first ethic of players who switch between top grade and reserve grade for building camaraderie and spirit within the club and consequently making his move up to the NRL easier.”We’ve come together really good at the Bears with the full-timers jumping back and forth,” he said.”It’s good with boys coming back from full-time squad to be able to do that and put everyone’s egos aside is what’s [helping] our success.”Of his own impressive debut, Fuimaono said it all went past in a bit of a blur.”To be honest I kind of blanked out in the hype of it,” he said.”My goal was to bring energy to the team when I got on and try and make a bit of an impact in the game so to get the win, hopefully I did good by the boys and showed I deserved to hold a spot in the team. ‌Plenty of Eels fans will be wishing the western Sydney local was still in blue and gold following what he showed against the Tigers but Fuimaono said he decided during the middle of last year that the time had come to seek opportunities elsewhere.”I was looking for a good stepping stone and playing opportunity. When Souths came, they’ve been such a massive club and having a recent premiership, I couldn’t be happier with the opportunity I’ve been given,” he said of the move.”‘Madge’ (Maguire) gave me the invitation. What’s kind of made it easier is all the boys have been really welcoming. I’ve made really good mates since I’ve been here at the club, they’ve made the transition really easy and training enjoyable.”You don’t really consider it as a job when you’re coming in and having laughs, they’ve made me feel real welcome.”Fuiamaono’s biggest challenge that came with the switch of clubs was moving out of the family home for the first time.”I did have to move and that was a massive milestone in life. Unfortunately, I had to leave my family in Mt Druitt, that was quite disappointing,” he said.”I did have the idea of bringing them with me, that was my first thought is I wanted to take them with me but at the moment I’m stepping out on my own and doing my best. I’m grateful enough to be given the opportunity and hopefully I do well.”last_img read more

Former England coach Graham Taylor dies at 72

first_imgGraham Taylor, the England coach derided for failing to qualify for the 1994 World Cup after flourishing as a club manager working for pop star Elton John, has died. He was 72.Taylor, who won admiration by leading Aston Villa and Watford into the top-flight in the 1980s, died early Thursday of a suspected heart attack, his family said.”The family are devastated by this sudden and totally unexpected loss,” a family statement said.Taylor is one of only four managers to have taken the same team from the fourth to the top division in English football, and he achieved it within five years at Watford.Elton John, who owned Watford during Taylor’s two stints in charge, said it was a “sad and dark day” for the club.”He was like a brother to me,” John wrote on an Instagram post. “We shared an unbreakable bond since we first met. We went on an incredible journey together and it will stay with me forever.”He took my beloved Watford from the depths of the lower leagues to uncharted territory and into Europe. We have become a leading English club because of his managerial wisdom and genius.”Taylor reached the pinnacle of English management when he was hired by the national team in 1990, inheriting a side that reached the World Cup semi-finals.”His enthusiasm for life and football was incredible,” former England player Paul Gascoigne said.Taylor guided England to the 1992 European Championship, but the team was eliminated at the first stage, setting the tone for the rest of his time with the national team.After England lost 2-1 to Sweden in their final game at Euro 92, The Sun tabloid trashed Taylor with the headline: “Swedes 2 Turnips 1.”Taylor’s head was superimposed on a turnip, a caricature that led to the manager becoming known harshly as “Turnip Taylor.””It hurts and that’s what really, really annoys me,” Taylor recalled in a 2012 BBC documentary. “They have no recognition about how much it hurts you. They think you don’t care.last_img read more

That’s our objective now: How do you beat China and how do you beat Kazakhstan? Only two will get to the next round.”Guiao believes the Philippines’ best shot at moving on is against Kazakhstan Though, the Kazakhs, who finished fourth in the previous edition of the quadrennial meet, offer a stiff challenge as well.“Of course, our chances will be best with Kazakhstan, but Kazakhstan is a strong, tall team. They’re athletic. They’re like the Australians. They’re big, they’re quick, they’re shooters,” he said. “China, we all know how strong China is so we have our work cut out for us.”ADVERTISEMENT “One thing we can be sure of is these guys are going to play their best and give everything to make the Filipino basketball fans happy.”In 2014, the Philippines barely got by Kazakhstan, 67-65, in the second round of the tournament. The Filipinos, however, failed to make the semifinals and were beaten by the Chinese, 78-71, in the classification round to finish in seventh place.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextlast_img read more

Seven Criminal Suspects Set Free in Bassa

first_imgAt least seven of several criminal suspects, who were arrested and detained for a prolonged period without trial and have been crying for justice, walked out on August 21, 2014 with smiles on their faces when the city court set  them free.Relatives and friends of the released suspects went gay after the associate magistrate pronounced the release of the suspects that day.Magistrate Brown set the seven criminal suspects free when he ruled on a two-count motion filed by Grand Bassa County’s Public Defender Paul Philip Jarvan, requesting the court to set his clients free following the deliberate failure of the state prosecutors to adjudicate the case.In court one of the defense counsel’s motions disclosed that the suspects were arrested and charged with Burglary, theft of property and aggravated assault by officers of the Grand Bassa County Liberia National Police Detachment, which  forwarded them to the court for pre-trial.The defendant through their counsel requested the court to post a valid criminal appearance bond because they were detained for two to four months, respectively,  without trial, and the court granted same.The defendants’ counsel, based on their prolonged detention without trial, prayed the court for their release as required by law and in keeping with Rule Nine (9) of the Rule of court.Rule nine provides that no criminal case in the Magisterial and Traffic courts should remain pending and be disposed of more than 30 days after arrest.The court, having keenly listened to the defense lawyer’s motion pro and cons and there being no resistance by the state prosecution, granted the motion saying it was in harmony and consistent  with law.Following this, the court ruled that the defendants be released from further detention at the Buchanan Central prison in keeping with Rule nine of the Rule of court governing magistrate and traffic courts because, accordingly, the court is not a party to any suit for a given case before it.Those released include Sam Massaquoi, Jonathan Wreh, Emmanuel Karwor and Mohammed Konneh formally charged with Burglary.  Others are Henry C. Brown and Zacheous Kpagar,  charged with theft of property; while Fredrick Klay was charged with Aggravated Assault.The release of the seven suspects stemmed from the over crowdedness of the Buchanan Central Prison and the inmates’ cry for justice following their prolonged detention without trial, something they described as injustice and abuse of their legal and constitutional rights. “Because of this, some of us are getting sick without medical attention, and our greatest fear is that some of us who are not sick could be affected by those who are sick,” the inmates lamented.According to observation by this newspaper, during a visit at the prison cell, some inmates were found with sore lips and other illnesses which need  serious and quick medical attention.Evidenced by the inmates’ claims, the cell usually holds 40 inmates but currently holds more than 70 inmates, thus making it overcrowded and most uncomfortable.Nevertheless, there is a dire need for the intervention of the public defender of the county, the Judiciary System, human rights groups in the county and the country in general, to ensure the speedy trial of the influx of the prolonged detainees languishing behind bars.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Dr. Walter Brumskine, Liberia’s Only Urologist, Cared for His Patients Though Most Couldn’t Afford

first_imgThe funeral mass of Dr. Walter L. Brumskine, Liberia’s only urologist, was held yesterday at Our Lady of Lebanon Catholic Church at Capitol Hill, Monrovia.In his eulogy to his fallen uncle, Counselor Charles W. Brumskine, now head of the Brumskine family, said “So many of God’s people could not afford the cost of Dr. Brumskine’s medical services, but he cared for them.Cllr. Brumskine recalled that his uncle was a very jovial doctor, always joking with his patients. “We don’t know if it was your jokes or your medicine that made them well,” he stated.He walked mourners through a series of conversations that his uncle could be having with an Angel as the two reflected on Brumskine’s life on Earth. The Angel,Cllr. Brumskine said, would commend the doctor on a life well lived in service to God, country and humanity.Hundreds attended the funeral, including former Minister of Health & Social Welfare, Martha Sendolo Belleh and Dr. Vuyu Golokai, Dean of the A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine and former Chief Medical Officer, John F. Kennedy Medical Center. One of the nation’s eminent medical practitioners, who once served as Chief Executive Officer and Deputy Chief Medical Officer of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center, Dr. Walter Brumskine died on Friday, February 12, 2016 at the St. Joseph Catholic Hospital, Monrovia. He was in his 85th year.During the funeral Mass, the government of Liberia, former patients, students, the clergy and Brumskine’s family recalled his passion for medicine, his love for life, how he charmed with his jokes his patients and all who came in contact with him. A recurrent theme in the tributes was his love of life and his firm belief that one of his callings was to make people laugh, using all the facial muscles that God gave them. Brumskine’s daughter, Dr. Euphemia Brumskine-Borrowes, said her father was God’s greatest gift to her family and thanked the Almighty for giving him to them for 84 years.Rev. Monsignor Robert Tikpor recalled fond memories of Dr. Brumskine at St. Peter Claver Junior High School. Tikpor was one of the older boys assigned to care for young Brumskine in the late 1940s. The two shared a friendship that lasted a lifetime. When Tikpor decided to join the Catholic Priesthood, Brumskine teased him. “Why you want to join that thing? You mean you’re leaving all these fine, fine girls here,’’ Brumskine told Tikpor. “I told him it was God’s gift for me to be a priest.”A native son of Grand Bassa County, Dr. Walter Lysandas Brumskine was the fifth of seven children, six of whom predeceased him. He began his education at the St. Peter Claver Junior High School in Buchanan and later matriculated to St. Patrick’s High School in Monrovia, where he graduated the second of his class in 1952. He was raised in the Methodist Church (son Methodist pastor), but the Catholic education influenced his life so much that he converted to the faith and remained a devout Catholic until his death.Growing up, Dr. Burmskine dreamed of becoming a doctor. After high school, he enrolled at the University of Liberia where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in biology. Brumskine’s hard work and excellent grades earned him a scholarship to pursue his medical studies at the Valencia Medical School in Spain.After his studies in Spain, Dr. Brumskine returned to Liberia to serve his country. He held numerous positions, including Associate Dean, A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine, University of Liberia; Private Physician to President W.V.S. Tubman; Council Member and Examiner, West African Council of Surgeons; former President, Liberia Medical and Dental Board; Founder and Medical Director, Brumskine Clinic, Liberia; Medical Director, Liberian Government Hospital, Grand Bassa County.One of his special attributes was that he became Liberia’s first urologist, and for many years remained the only specialist who provided medical and surgical care to people facing problems in the urinary tract system.During his professional life, Dr. Brumskine regularly participated in Annual General Meetings of the West African College of Surgeons; British Urological Association, the Royal College of Surgeons.He authored several medical and professional articles, including “Incidence of Schistosomaisis in Liberian Children and “Squamous Cell Carcinoma in a Five-Year-Old Liberian Male.”Dr. Brumskine remdered voluntary service as Observer Doctor to the Liberian Daily Observer newspaper. In recognition of his outstanding services to the government and people of Liberia and humanity in general, through his practice of medicine, Dr. Brumskine received many state decorations, including Knight Grand Commander of the Most Venerable Order of Knighthood of the Pioneers.Following the funeral mass, the cortege departed for Upper Buchanan, Grand Bassa County where his remains were interred alongside his parents and ancestors.Survivors include his widow of 60 years, Mrs. Euphemia Lomax Brumskine, nine children—Mrs. Euphemia Brumskine Burrowes, Mrs. Ursula Brumskine Bonar, Mrs. Jacquelyn Brumskine Anderson, Linda Brumskine, Worteji Brumskine, Walta Brumskine, Delaruelle Brumskine, Mrs. Margaret Brumskine Bonar and William Brumskine; 12 grandchildren, one great-grandson; sister Mayme Brumskine; and many other relatives.
