Clermont giant Sebastien Vahaamahina ready to rumble

first_imgMentor: Cudmore has been a guiding light for Vahaamahina at ClermontBut it’s Cudmore from whom Vahaamahina has learned the most this season. Laughing when asked if they have a ‘father and son’ relationship given the age gap, the 23-year-old admits he does from time to time ask what it feels like to be 36. Is it wise to pull the leg of Cudmore, one of rugby’s more robust characters? “Jamie is a completely different character on the training ground to what he is on the pitch,” says Vahaamahina. “During matches, one can see he is there to win, he wants to dominate. But he’s done a lot to bring on my game and playing alongside him, learning from him, has really improved my game this season.”Cudmore returns the compliment, warning the world that Vahaamahina will be a frightening figure when he hits his peak years as a player. “He’s got all the tools to be one of the best, and as he grows into his talent he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with,” says the Canadian. “Strength, size and speed are already a given. He’s also got a mean streak that he can turn on in the big games, which is very important for imposing himself.”He’ll need that mean streak at Twickenham on Saturday. Botha and Williams are tough characters who will want to test the temperament of the 23-year-old Frenchman in what is his first major final. But Vahaamahina is a hard man himself, albeit one who prefers to do his talking on the pitch. Returning to Brive for the start of the 2009-10 season, Vahaamahina admits he took a little while to settle into his new environment. “It was a bit of shock around November when the weather changed,” he says, laughing.Steamrollered: Vahaamahina was part of a Clermont side that smashed Saints in the quarter-finalsHis acclimatisation to professional rugby was swift and after two seasons with Brive he joined Perpignan, in the deep south of France. Not long after his arrival, however, Perpignan ran into a financial storm and were eventually relegated from the Top 14 to the ProD2 at the end of the 2013-14 season. Vahaamahina, like a number of other players, moved on, in his case to Clermont. “It was a hard decision to leave Perpignan but if you do something and you feel you made the right choice, then it helps,” says Vahaamahina, who won the first of his 15 caps against Australia in 2012. “I’ve joined a big club here at Clermont, with a great team. I’m developing and I want to continue to develop.”Vahaamahina made two appearances in the back-row during the 2014 Six Nations, a compliment to his footballing skills but not an experiment he particularly enjoyed. “I prefer the second row,” he says emphatically.  Nonetheless, his ability to play in the loose like a third flanker has been to Clermont’s advantage this season and Vahaamahina’s tackle success rate of 96% out of 177 tackles is bettered among the forwards only by open-side Alexandre Lapandry.Clermont are rare among Top 14 clubs in that the bulk of their pack are French internationals, seasoned ones at that. Between them the flankers Julien Bonnaire and Damien Chouly, and front-row trio of Benjamin Kayser, Vincent Debaty and Thomas Domingo have more than 200 caps. “I’m someone who asks questions of the older guys,” he says. “I learn from them and discuss with them. It helps that there’s a trust within the squad that allows me to do that.” Big man: Vahaamahina will form the Clermont engine room with Jamie Cudmore Sebastien Vahaamahina is a big man with a soft voice. And soft hands, too, as he’s shown this season for Clermont in combining set-piece solidity with ball-handling athleticism in the loose. The French giant, who stands 6ft 6in and weighs in at just under 20 stone, arrived at the club last summer and now commands a regular slot in their starting XV, packing down alongside Jamie Cudmore in the second row, and leaving the veteran French international Julien Pierre to warm his derriere on the bench.One can safely say Vahaamahina isn’t a man who seeks the spotlight. He rarely gives interviews, and when he does talk, one has to crane one’s neck to catch those soft words. Not that he’s a difficult interviewee, far from it. He punctuates his prose with melodious chuckles and gives the impression of a man at ease with the world.“He’s got a great sense of humour,” says Cudmore who, at 36, is 13 years Vahaamahina’s senior.  In fact Vahaamahina will be the exception in Saturday’s Champions Cup final, the only lock on the field under 30. Like Cudmore, Toulon’s second-row pairing of Bakkies Botha and Ali Williams are in their mid-30s, leaving the Frenchman to carry the flag for 20-somethings. “It’s going to be the first time that I play against them,” says Vahaamahina of the South African and New Zealander. “They’re great players, both World Cup winners, so it will be a pleasure to play against them, particularly if I manage to impose myself at the set-piece and show them that youth has arrived!”All smiles: Cudmore says Vahaamahina is fun off the pitchA decade ago, while Williams and Botha were at the peak of their careers, Vahaamahina was a gangly adolescent growing up in New Caledonia, a dependent territory of France in the Pacific Ocean 750 miles east of Australia. He didn’t even play rugby in his childhood, preferring the frenetic pace of handball, one reason why his hands are so soft and his co-ordination so sharp. “It was my brother who began playing rugby,” explains Vahaamahina. “I accompanied him to training and that’s how I started. Then I carried on it school. And another important figure was Georges Sao, our priest. He told us stories about rugby and helped us understand the rules. I suppose you could say it was a ‘coup de foudre’ [love at first sight]; the first time I picked up a rugby ball I was in love with it. I loved the contact and everything about it.”Vahaamahina certainly had the build for his new passion. “I was tall as a child,” he reflects. “By the time I was 15 I was 6ft 3in but I wasn’t that broad. In fact  I was the slimmest in my family.”But none of them had his talent and when he visited France for the first time in 2009, to compete for a New Caledonia team in a Sevens tournament in Brive, he was swiftly identified as a star of the future. “I went back to New Caledonia for a couple of months at the end of the tournament and Brive was the first club to contact me,” says Vahaamahina. “There were others who contacted me but Brive was the first one, and I immediately warmed to Brive and its structure.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sebastien Vahaamahina came to rugby late in life, but at 6ft 6in and nearly 20st he soon found his true metier with Clermont and Francelast_img read more

Biting claim gets Fijian hooker Samu Suguturaga cited in Brisbane

first_imgMonday Sep 4, 2017 Biting claim gets Fijian hooker Samu Suguturaga cited in Brisbane The opening round of Australia’s National Rugby Championship has been marred by an alleged bite to the ear by Fijian Drua hooker Samu Suguturaga against Brisbane City at Ballymore Stadium on Saturday. Suguturaga has since been cited.Playing in their first ever match in the expanded NRC, the Fijian Drua team went down 45-36 in Brisbane, but will take some heart from scoring a flurry of tries late in the game.In the first half an ear-biting claim disrupted things momentarily though.Hooker Samu Suguturaga will face a NRC judicial hearing after being cited for an alleged bite to the ear of his opposite number, Brisbane City skipper Andrew Ready, during a scrum.Ready reported the incident to the on-field referee immediately, but despite the blood and clear bite marks, there was insufficient evidence at the time, and the match continued. The hooker has since received stitches. “I’m lucky he was wearing a mouthguard otherwise he would have had the whole thing (ear),” Ready said post match. “It’s pretty disgusting and shouldn’t be in the game. The ref said he didn’t see it so it’s with the officials now.”The judicial hearing will take place at the Queensland Rugby Union offices at Ballymore on Tuesday night (5 September) and will be overseen by judicial officer Paul Tully.UPDATE: Suguturaga has been banned for 20 weeks following his disciplinary hearingcredit: fox sports auADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Three Internet users arrested for blaming fall in stocks on king’s ailing health

first_img Receive email alerts November 4, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three Internet users arrested for blaming fall in stocks on king’s ailing health Three Internet users have been arrested in the past four days for posting articles blaming King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s poor health for last month’s fall in the Bangkok stock exchange. They have been charged under article 14 of the Computers Crime Act 2007 with endangering national security by spreading false rumours about the king’s health. The first two to be arrested were Katha Pajariyapong, 37, of the brokerage company KT ZMICO, and Theeranan Vipuchan, 43, a former executive with UBS Securities. Arrested on 1 November, they have been freed on bail but are forbidden to leave the country. The third person is Somchet Ittiworakul, 38, who was arrested yesterday.Accused of disseminating reports that caused stocks to fall in mid-October, they are facing possible five-year jail sentences and fines of 100,000 baths (2,000 euros). “We call for the charges against these three Internet users to be dismissed,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Such accusations are baseless and violate the right to report an economic event after it has taken place. Explaining that the stock exchange fall was linked to the king’s health harms neither the king nor national security.”The authorities are currently pursuing the investigation with the aim of identifying the defendants’ motives and establishing whether they profited from the publication of the offending reports. The police have confiscated their personal and office computers.The defendants just posted articles online that linked the fall in stocks to the fact that the king was admitted to Bangkok’s Siriraj on 19 September. Theeranan points out that all she did was translate and post a Bloomberg agency article written after the fall (, and that she was not paid to do this.It seems that the translation of the Bloomberg dispatch is the only piece of hard evidence in the prosecution case file. The investigators have not mentioned the original article and have referred only to the translation, which reinforces the impression that the three defendants are being used as scapegoats for the fall in stocks.The police say the three defendants do not know each other. The authorities have meanwhile revealed that they are investigating two other Internet users with a view to arresting them for the same reason.Although it does not mention lèse-majesté (attacks on the monarchy), the Computers Crime Act 2007 punishes crimes that threaten national security and, under Thai law, lèse-majesté is a crime that threatens national security. To avoid being closed down, many Internet sector companies cooperate with the authorities and comply with all requests for information about individual Internet users. The supreme court has never issued a ruling on the Computers Crime Act.Around 55,000 websites are currently blocked in Thailand on suspicion of violating the lèse-majesté laws, while 34 people are currently being prosecuted on lèse-majesté charges.

The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh has asked both the governments to place on record the procedure currently being followed for contractors or employers to register migrant workers as also what are the procedures being followed for ensuring compliance. The order has come in a PIL filed by Mr Shashank S Mangal seeking a writ of mandamus to be issued to both the Centre and the Delhi Government to ensure that the machinery for the enforcement and implementation of the Inter-State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1979 is put in place in the Union Territory of Delhi. The Petitioner also demanded for both of these governments to frame Rules under Section 35 of the Inter-State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1979 for operationalization of the Act in Delhi. While issuing notices to both the Centre and the Delhi Government, the court has asked the Labour Department of both the governments to submit status reports in respect of the following: Number of establishments which are currently registered under Section 4 of the Act; Number of licences issued to contractors in terms of Section 8 of the Act; The number of inter-state migrant workers who have, in fact, been declared under Section 12 to the State Government or even to the Central Government. Number of actions taken against `contractors’ and/or `employers’ for contravention of provisions of the Act since 2010. Total number of ‘officers’ appointed under Sections 3, 7, 11and 20 of the Act. These affidavits are supposed to be filed on or before June 25. Appearing for the Delhi Government, Mr Ramesh Singh submitted that insofar as the Registering Officers, Licensing Officers, Appellate Officers and Inspectors are concerned, the same have been appointed by the Government of NCT of Delhi. Mr Singh also submitted that the Rules under this Act have been notified. While emphasising upon the importance of the matter, the court highlighted that: ‘The recent crisis which the country has witnessed with respect to migrant workmen shows that for the effective enforcement and implementation of the Act, there is an immediate need for proper data to be always available so as to ensure that steps can be taken in a timely and adequate manner, especially in times of a pandemic such as COVID-19 or in any other form of emergent situation.’ The court further observed that in order to have a proper, streamlined regulation of migrant workmen and their conditions of service, the first and the foremost significant measure would be the collection of the actual data and the integration of the same between the Central Government and the State Governments. The court further said: ‘For the said purpose, the said Governments would have to consider as to whether there should be a centralized portal for registration of migrant workmen by the contractors who engage them or the employers who employ them. Mechanisms and tools also ought to be made available so that employers and contractors do not find the same burdensome and that they can submit the data without glitches.’Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img
