Inglis left the field to undertake a head injury assessment during the Rabbitohs’ 18-14 loss at Penrith Stadium.He was booed as he made his way to the bench, with one fan allegedly calling him a ‘black dog’.The Panthers yesterday issued an apology to Inglis for the behaviour, and are now investigating the incident alongside the NRL Integrity Unit.An angry Meninga labelled the act ‘disgusting’ and said the person responsible should be banned for life.”I thought racial vilification was gone out of our game, it obviously hasn’t,” he said.”I reckon Greg will be hurting, and I applaud him for his actions and hopefully they find the perpetrator and kick him out for life.”It does make me angry because you know how much effort he [Inglis] puts in to the recognition of Aboriginal people and the work he does around the game.”NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg personally reached out to Inglis yesterday to reiterate that the game will not tolerate racism.”I wanted to make sure he realised that, that’s not the game, that’s not what rugby league stands for and he knows that,” Greenberg said.”He’s got faith in us to do what’s right and we will do that if we can find that person, and as I said, Penrith have spent a lot of time dealing with CCTV footage.”Greenberg would not confirm a potential life ban for the person involved but did say the NRL will “throw the book at them”.”It is one person, but it is one person too many,” he said.”The message is simple, we don’t tolerate that sort of behaviour and nor does the community.”We will do everything we can to make sure that person is not welcome inside the game.”Inglis has been at the centre of a number of race-related incidents in the past.In 2013 he was the victim of a racial attack on a social media website, while in 2010 former New South Wales winger Timana Tahu walked out of State of Origin camp after hearing then assistant coach Andrew Johns use a racist slur to describe Inglis.

0Shares0000Diego Maradona has been a vocal critic of Argentine football © AFP/File / Johannes EISELEBRONNITSY, Russian Federation, Jun 24 – Diego Maradona has requested a meeting with Argentina’s players in an attempt to inspire the struggling squad ahead of their crucial final World Cup group game against Nigeria.The two-time world champions must beat Nigeria in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday if they are to avoid a premature exit following a disastrous 3-0 defeat by Croatia. He said he would bring along other Argentina greats of the past for the motivational talk.“I would love to hold a meeting with them, with (Nery) Pumpido, with (Sergio) Goycochea, with (Claudio) Caniggia, with (Pedro) Troglio, even with (Daniel) Passarella if he wants to come, and with (Jorge) Valdano,” Maradona told Venezuelan TV channel Telesur.“We’re going to defend our honour, boys. It cost us too much to be where we are for Croatia to come and hit us for three goals and to leave with our arms crossed without anyone putting a foot in.”Maradona, who has criticised coach Jorge Sampaoli and striker Sergio Aguero in recent days, also took aim at Argentina Football Association (AFA) president Claudio Tapia in his latest outburst.“I’m furious and very upset inside, because anyone who wore that (Argentina) shirt can’t see it being trampled like that by a Croatian team that isn’t Germany, that isn’t Brazil, that isn’t Holland or Spain,” he said.“But there is a guilty party and the culprit is the president of the AFA. Everyone just accepted it when Sampaoli came in with computers, with drones, with 14 assistants.“I think there is a total lack of authority on Tapia’s part.”Javier Mascherano, one of the squad’s senior players, denied on Sunday that there was a rift between Sampaoli and the players.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

16 January 2013The South African Police Service (SAPS) made 67 000 arrests around the country over the festive season, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said at a media briefing in Pretoria on Tuesday.The arrests – for crimes ranging from murder, robbery and rape to fraud, shoplifting and driving under the influence – took place during the course of a festive season safety campaign which began on 15 October and will officially end on 31 January.A total of 704 were arrested for public violence. “We respect the right of citizens to protest as that is a constitutionally enshrined right and we have no intention to tamper with these rights,” Mthethwa said.“We, however, firmly oppose any violent destruction of property, intimidation and murder of innocent people, while these criminal acts are being disguised and justified as public protests.”Lawlessness on the country’s roads was responsible for a high number of arrests, with crimes ranging from speeding to driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.“We remain very concerned about the lack of adherence to the rules of the road, which have resulted in fatalities and loss of lives,” the minister said said.“We arrested 2 751 suspects for driving under the influence, which is exceptionally high.”According to Transport Minister Ben Martins, approximately 1 465 South Africans lost their lives on the country’s roads over the festive season.Stolen vehicles were also a problem, and Mthethwa said the police had confiscated 451 vehicles nationally, with 296 suspects arrested for theft of motor vehicles and motorcycles.In addition, he said, 51 191 fines were issued for offences ranging from traffic violations to unlawfully running liquor outlets.Illegal firearms and ammunition were also confiscated, with the police finding 721 guns and 7 638 rounds of ammunition, including nine commercial explosives.Drugs also posed a threat, but the arrest of 8 889 suspects for drug-related crimes helped put a dent in the scourge.“We confiscated 6-million grams of dagga, 2 832 grams of cocaine, 4 225 grams of nyaope [a mixture of dagga and cheap heroin] and 2 551 grams of tik [crystal methamphetamine].”From the start of the campaign, about 1 477 901 people 501 373 vehicles were searched, with 3 614 roadblocks conducted.Source: SANews.gov.za

It augurs well for Indian boxing that as many as seven have qualified for the London Olympics. It is also important to note the way they have qualified for the mega-event. Four of them made the cut through the world championships and two clinched gold in the second Olympic qualifier.This bunch has more potential than previous boxing contingents to win laurels for the country. There is a strong possibility that they will improve on their Beijing performance. Also, as far as technique and mental strength are concerned Indian boxers have improved a lot. They should have the confidence and not be complacent.The team is young, and apart from Vijender Kumar, six boys are making their Olympic debut. But don’t go by their age and lack of experience in the senior level. They are used to the pressure. They have beaten at least one acclaimed boxer in their fledgling international career. Vijender set the trend with a bronze in Beijing and gave Indian boxers a reason to dream big. He remains a strong medal prospect, given the fact that he has consistently done well over the years – bronze at 2009 world championships and gold at 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games.Shiva Thapa (18 years), the youngest-ever boxer to qualify, has achieved so much at a young age. A medallist at the youth world meet and the youth Olympics, he has beaten the world champion, and won a gold at the Olympic qualifying event.Vikas Krishan has established himself as a strong medal prospect with a bronze at the world meet and a gold at the Asian Games. Competition in the light weight category has always been tough and it was heartening to see Devendro Singh qualifying in his very first attempt.advertisement

However, the Bahrain wrestler was beaten 2-8 by Japan’s Yuhi Fujinami in the quarter-finals, thus ending Sushil’s hopes of competing again in the repechage round.Sushil lost his qualification round 3-5 to Batirov.Sushil was leading 2-1 after the first round with a takedown, despite maintaining the initial lead of two points, the Indian wrestler could not hold his nerves and gave away two consecutive points to his opponent which led to his eventual defeat.35-year old Sushil Kumar has never won an Asian Games gold and has the best showing of bronze from the 2006 edition in Doha.In an interview to ANI, he said:“It’s all part of the game, I am focusing on my next target now and I will keep working on my body, I should not have attacked after 3 minutes, should have just stuck to counter.”Kumar didn’t have to go through trials for the Asian Games, and chose to train in Georgia instead, won a gold at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast earlier this year.Also Read-Badminton: India’s Manasi Joshi wins Bronze in women’s singles at Thailand Para-Badminton International,2018 Advertisement

Australia coach Darren Lehmann is to hold clear-the-air talks ahead of the one-day series against New Zealand after recalled all-rounder Glenn Maxwell criticised wicketkeeper Matt Wade.Maxwell said on Thursday that he had been disappointed at some of the decisions by Wade, his captain in the Victoria state side, to bat ahead of him in matches this year. (Also read: Pat Cummins returns to Australia’s one-day squad)”I think the wicketkeeper should be batting at seven unless you’re trying to squeeze an extra bowler into your line-up,” Maxwell said on Thursday.When asked why Wade had batted ahead of him, Maxwell replied: “Because he’s captain, and he chooses the batting order.”Lehmann said he would speak to power-hitting Maxwell to try and resolve the issue.”Yeah, we will (speak about it),” Lehmann told reporters at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday.”Obviously disappointed but we’ll work through those issues. It’s difficult but again we’ll work through it behind the scenes.”We’re confident they can work together.”Maxwell, who was dropped from the Australian team after failing to post any substantial scores in the previous 12 months, has said he would like to push for a recall to the Test side for next year’s tour of India. (Also read: Trent Boult set to return for ODI opener against Australia)His batting, however, had not even made him an option for the just completed third Test against South Africa, where Australia overhauled their side in an effort to shake them out of a slump, the coach said.advertisement”(He) hasn’t made a hundred for two years,” Lehmann added.”Are you going to pick a bloke who hasn’t made a hundred in two years?”Victoria batsman Rob Quiney had some blunt advice for his team mate Maxwell.”I think he just needs to lip it and just make some runs,” Quiney told EON Sports radio on Friday.
