Aaron Smith sex scandal: New Zealand Rugby launches new investigation

first_imgThe messages appear to show Smith had convinced the woman he was caught in an airport toilet with last year to lie in a legal document, had mislead his coach, and had attempted to deceive his partner.On Thursday, New Zealand Rugby confirmed to Newshub based on the new information, it’s planning to “investigate the Aaron Smith matter further”.”It is effectively an employment issue that requires investigation,” the spokesperson said.The All Blacks star allegedly had sex with the woman, who leaked the Facebook messages, in a disabled toilet at Christchurch Airport in September 2016.He claimed it was a one-off incident and apologised for his “huge error in judgement” – but she says she was having an affair with him for two years.

Aguirre: “We started the second round with four new faces”

first_imgHow do you see the new ones for tomorrow?Amadou has not arrived yet. He did not train with us. Bryan made the second enter. Assalé and Guerrero, the first. I will take them. I’ll take 19 and then I’ll make a discard. I don’t think I started any. One will have to go to the stands. Maybe not. I see them well. They have been playing with their teams. The language… well… they speak two Spanish, one English and the other only French, but I have two or three on the team that speak French. Except Amadou, the others are with us.Is happy?Yes, I’m happy. The group is also seen … well … wanting to compete internally. Now it is a problem for the coach to choose from the 17 that I have, the best ones, whatever they are called, whatever they are. Does it really upset not having Cuéllar?Pichu is an important player, no doubt. He is a boy who encourages a lot, competes, demanding with work. It is an important absence, but here I always turn to the topics: nobody is essential. I love him very much, he knows it, but he is not … is sanctioned. So that’s it. Juan deserves a chance and that’s it. Lombo barely has time with me. I know him less, but I stay to see him. It puts enthusiasm. It puts love for the shield. That overcomes any barrier. Then you can be wrong, but I don’t care.The Real comes more rested … how do you consider that these aspects are not taken into account?Well, nothing surprises me anymore. They put you Real Sociedad – Real Madrid on Tuesday … then on Wednesday and at the end on Thursday. They put you on Fridays in a row, then at 12 noon on Sundays, several Sundays too. I think … pufff … without intentionality, it is true that we are not being lucky in the schedules … but hey … it is not a complaint. It is an answer to your question. It is done. A day or so does not affect us. Nah … I’ve always said it, the pretexts are for the losers. No one should complain. The situation does not allow space for regret. We are alive and fighting… We start a second round with four new faces that refresh us a lot. It gives us internal competition that we didn’t have. That raises the level, sure.We will have to follow the Wanda line …Of course, of course, realize that people who play outside arrived. We have many people outside and inside. We have four pivots for two positions. We have many central … I know … Bustinza you put it wherever you want. Marc, who is returning … we are complete. It is true that there were people who left because they wanted to play. And that I understood. They left everything to play. Nothing happens. It is legitimate and appreciated. At this time here they would have to wait. You have to turn the page and face a three-point home commitment after 0-3 against Getafe. La Real was my first rival, we tied there and now we will try to win.Do you have raw material to change the drawing?Of course, of course … the other day against Getafe we ​​played with four in the background in the second half. The operation of the party asks you for things. Silva is a natural. Kevin, too, but by circumstances they have played in different positions. I did not want to modify much what there was, because they were 18 months working with the same and I did not want to confuse, but from 5-3-2 to 4-4-2, to 4-1-4-1 it can be made easy during the match. I believe that coaches have an obligation to teach them to play. Anyway and with the drawing that ea. Today they are able to do it fast.How do you see Real?They are doing things well. It is a dynamic and agile team. It has impressive mobility and attack with many people. We have to be alert. They have a very young average. They give me pleasure. It is a team that plays and lets play. I love the master, because he is from the house, he feels the colors, with his modesty he has managed to place himself in the elite. It is up in the elite. When he played against us, had he won, he would have been a leader. It is all year in European positions. It is to applaud. I love. He loves his quarry very much, his coaches … it will be a nice match. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 1, 2020center_img Are you satisfied with how the market has ended?They are players, two outside, who are going to help us. Roger and Bryan are fast. They know how to play close to the line. They are assistants. They can come in handy. Guerrero is known better than me. I saw him in Olympiacos because he was a coach of Egypt and had a player there. Guerrero is tremendously competitive, very hard working. We can use his caste and his desire to play. Amadou is a pivot different from what we have. We have Roque, Rubén, Recio … these are similar. This one is different, with more muscle and long stride. The template is complete. From now on we go every Sunday to have to choose the best. That is what we all want. Be 20-21 and choose the best now that also come long weeks.Have you had any signings in the inkwell?No, not really, because, for example, Siovas has recovered after a long, long time out. He played in Barcelona … he is undergoing rehabilitation, it is obvious. We have everything behind now. Above we have Aitor, who is improving, or Oscar, who is always. On the outside we improve and in the end we have three: Guerrero, Guido and Braithwaite. I have possibilities. There is freshness and desire to face this second round starting tomorrow trying to get three by three.In As said that the teams that made many market movements did not like … Have they been run over by circumstances?No, because madness was not committed either. He did not sign for signing. Those who came were thought and spoken. We made lists of players for positions we need. In the case of Assalé and Amadou, we had been tracking the market for 15-20 days. Bryan’s thing rushes. I was not in the plans. But with En Nesyri, it rushes. The club decides to exercise a right of first refusal on the kid. With Guerrero we save the scan. Perhaps the most precipitous is Bryan’s. En Nesyri surprised us and tried, within that surprise, to try to bring water to his mill. Things that are economic and that does not apply to me.Any of the signings that have come, were they from your list of preferences?Yeah right. Bryan no. There the club decided to exercise the right of first refusal. And then he told me. But he is a very young boy, young man, who is sure to give us.last_img read more

Aguirre, on the march of Braithwaite: “They screwed us”

first_imgJavier Aguirre has the soul of steel. And its verb is pure cement. Nothing knocks him down. Tireless in the face of adversity, the Leganés coach gave a new show of optimism in the press room to, after signing Braithwaite for Barça, launch a tireless fight message. Of infinite hope. No, no, vital there is nothing. This (the shield is pointed out) this is vital. The rest is passing. If there is no shield, there is no equipment. Here we are only employees. With more or less responsibility. Vital this … and the cuore. What can Braithwaite bring to Barça? What did he say when he said goodbye?I don’t know what he’s going to give them … they’ll know why they hired him. I told him the same as those who left. What luck and that they will always find me as a friend. Someone to message and give advice. We have contact as in all my previous stages. I like to keep friends. Soccer is temporary. The human being is the one that matters. I will be watching him as of all who left. It is a chain of good vibes. Do you have any idea of ​​a soccer player who can do something unexpected?I don’t think, I ran out of rabbits in the hat. We will play with what we have and we will fight like animals. We have to play each game as if it were the last. Look at Atlético or Getafe, that’s the line. Try to leave your soul every game. In the end I know that only one wins but as long as there is life, we have hope, these players who are encouraged have a good chance to get their heads out. We always try except against Getafe and Levante half an hour. In the others we have played with the knife between the teeth. We lack quality in the areas, concentration there. And I’ve already told them, you won’t hear any message from me that they don’t know before.What casualties do you have?The casualties are ‘Pichu’ Cuéllar, who is in his final stage of recovery just like Rodrigo Tarín. Aitor Ruibal is there with the knee. He had a blow to the knee, dragged him against Betis. We were doubting. The resonance speaks of a synovitis, an inflammation in the knee and we prefer not to expose it anymoreWho has hurt more to lose from Braithwaite and En-Nesyri?They did what they had to do at this club, delivered the best they had. And that’s it I can’t, I shouldn’t and I don’t want to regret thinking about what would have happened. They contributed what they had to contribute and now it is up to another to do it.Is it more complicated to save than a month ago?The team is fine, aware of this. If not, we would not be here. If I see a player loose or not, I hit him first. Long faces, regrets, complaints, the VAR, the referee are not worth … you will never hear these stories from my mouth or from my players. We are here on our own merits. The challenge is difficult, but so far. Important today are all. Some had other characteristics, I didn’t care about Youssef or Martin. They have less speed than Guerrero and Guido but they have other virtues and must be exploited. They are two front extraordinary centers, one demonstrated in Monaco and another in Olympiacos. I will not play with ten, with three boys from the subsidiary. We will play with qualified and well trained people.Have you asked one more march to Guido, Guerrero and Assalé? Can comparatives be a drag on them?Ballast, at all. I have nothing to ask for, just what I asked them since I arrived here. Maximum intensity in training. They can be wrong, the error is inherent in the game and the human being. In bold, Assalé, I could not because my French already forgot. But he is a very good player. It is a matter of knowing what we are playing. We are there. Clarify, and there are people who have known me for 25 years, that if I say bold it is like shorty, chubby, ugly, white and yellow. Do not start with racisms, I say it with the love I have for Roger Roger Assalé. One more march we have to give all not because Martin left but because we are in the last place in the league. That is hard. Nine games had been lost before nine and with us four of them. But we remain in the last place and we must redouble our efforts, we must all take a step forward. Me included.He stated that exits force him to change everything. Is it the most difficult challenge you have faced?Training the Mexican team is very difficult, very difficult. And it touched me twice. It is a very nice challenge, a huge opportunity for me as a coach to show me that I can still contribute something to this club that he trusted me. I am convinced that I can with it, of course.How do you raise the morale of the fans?In the field, there is no more. I can say Mass here, good words, bad words or send messages. But it is in the field. If they see in the field that with or without Braithwaite life is played, people understand that and understand feelings. Here it is not pasta or money, the big fish always eats the boy. We have our spirit, a very professional team, magnificent facilities, an impressive medical and technical staff. We have no excuse to justify a bad performance or passivity on the pitch. I would not allow it. And he who is not involved in this role is not summoned. The descents, and I have experience of fire extinguishers, are played like this and not otherwise. Convinced that you can and demonstrating on the pitch. Play that ball as if it were the last in the league. If you are wrong later, people even understand those mistakes. But you can’t ask anything from the one who broke his soul ninety minutes and then a penalty failed. Silly people are not and understand that this Leganés is in a compromised situation, that the challenge is capitalized. But also that we need you, that your breath is important. And they have given it to us in Butarque, no day they have failed of all. And except for the thirty minutes of Getafe I swear that with the fans we are at hand, we go there matched. “The costumes are great and I’m even better,” he said in his first sentence. Like the ones he sang later, without regrets, although full of irony “For now the FIFA regulation does not prevent us from playing without a goalkeeper,” he said smiling before defining what had happened to them in Mexican. “They screwed us,” he said between laughter and messages of infinite support to his team. “Vital Braithwaite? Vital here only the shield and the cuore. What do you want me to say? What do I cry? Here I have 26 very good players and it would be disrespectful to say that we are screwed. We are going to Vigo butt, hard “he insisted. center_img What is your assessment of this crazy week?The costumes are great and I better yet … as long as they let me play with eleven … the rest is not important. FIFA rules have not prevented us from playing without a goalkeeper, for example. Nothing … look … the sun came out, we take off without gloves … we are fine. We are strong How do you feel you don’t talk about Celta?Let them ask me, which is the second question … don’t rush. We focus on Celtic, yes. Braithwaite was here until Wednesday and trained thinking of Celtic. There are no pretexts. Forward. It’s going to be a complicated game because they come from doing well. They have found a very good game form. They won at Sevilla and were able to win at the Bernabéu. It will be a good match. How does Braithwaite’s loss disrupt you to play otherwise?It upsets me like Youssef. He leaves a player who was playing, nothing more … I do not spin more than that. As if it were a sanction or an injury. I take it that way. Soccer circumstances. It is true that something like this had never happened to me. You can not imagine that going to last place will raise two players. It would be the other way around … that the big ones are taken away. But hey, merit of the sports management, who sign for nine and sell for 39. Where do you have to sign? The business is round. Fuck … your little medallion for the people who sign here. What barbarity, how good. He is taking it with philosophy …What do you want me to do? Let he cry? Well hey … nothing happens … we play eleven against eleven and I have 26 players. It would be disrespectful to say yes, that we are screwed … well, nothing … these are great players. We have a significant deficit of points, it is true, but if we compare the first twelve games, which led only one victory, the next twelve times the team has improved horrors. We need points and to that we go to Vigo. To win, with eleven on the field and seven on the bench. According to regulation. In Spain it is said to undress a saint to dress another. How do you say this in Mexican?(Laughs) … Fucking mother … Now you really made me a strong son … I think they screwed us, that’s how it is said in Mexican. We didn’t even put our hands in … it’s what it is. Nothing happens. Should we change the norm?I have heard all kinds of qualifiers to this. I can not add much more. I am institutional and the institution has already expressed itself. I strongly agree with them. Barça acted in accordance with regulations. He didn’t cheat anyone. That’s how it was since the beginning of the season. Everyone who draws the conclusions they want. Are you planning to sign forward without a team?The general manager let me know that we are waiting for a response from the RFEF to sign. Until it arrives, I have what I have, which is good in quantity and quality. I am happy with what I have. From there, they are all speculation. Is it necessary to sign for permanence?Since I arrived 8 players left and 5 have come. We are fine. When you are in decline it is difficult to think that there are key players or not. In descent we are all muddy. Together we will get this out. I am the first one that I think is going to be achieved. This only strengthens us inward. This is an opportunity. The challenge is difficult, now more difficult if possible, but even there. We continue two points down and we can still play with eleven because the regulations allow us to play with eleven. Braithwaite was vital to you …Is that what you think or what you want me to tell you? If not, say so …last_img read more

first_imgFinbarr BoyleA COUNTY Donegal school principal who guilty to a series of embezzlement and fraud charges involving tens of thousands of euro has lost his job as a soccer coachFinbarr Boyle, from Ardara, has had his sentence adjourned until next December to allow him to pay back €25,000 of the €200,000 he stole from Kilnaleck National School in Co Cavan in a crime which deprived hundreds of kids of school dinners for four years. The 35-year-old had told an outside catering company to stop providing school meals to the school in 2008 by claiming a Department of Social Protection grant had been stopped. But the money hadn’t stopped and he stole the money.Boyle was described in court earlier this month as a ‘fantastic’ soccer and gaelic football coach.Donegal Daily has learned however that he has now been fired by the Donegal Schoolboys where he had been coaching some of the county’s most talented young soccer players.Soccer authorities only learned of his crimes in the past few weeks.Cavan Circuit Court heard Boyle had spent €66,000 on a school credit card alone.He pleaded guilty to seven sample charges of theft including five separate counts of stealing a total of €73,320 from the Department of Social Protection between November 2009 and February 2011.He also admitted forgery in creating false invoices for food.The court heard Boyle – also known as Fionbar O Baoill and a regular teacher at an Irish language summer school in Ranafast – was from Ardara and had been living with his elderly parents since his wife left him.He was living on the dole and was unable to get a job.A character reference was made by a number of retired teachers including Gerry Murphy who runs Coláiste Rann na Feirste who pleaded for leniency in the case.Mr Murphy said Boyle was a brilliant teacher who had made a mistake.Sgt Fitzpatrick said the crimes had a devastating effect on the village where Boyle had been principal from 2005. Parents were angry and upset, he said.Judge John Aylmer said he would allow Boyle a year to pay back €25,000 from the money stolen and adjourned sentence until next December.He said he wasn’t making any promises but if Boyle paid the money he would be minded not to impose a custodial sentence.PRINCIPAL WHO STOLE FROM SCHOOL IS AXED FROM SCHOOLBOY COACH JOB was last modified: December 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ArdaracheatcoachcriminalcrookFinbarr Boylesoccerthieflast_img read more


first_imgAn angler who hooked an antique camera while out fishing has appealed for help after trying to find its owner.Tony Boyle was enjoying a pleasant day out with his two children on the River Finn at Donnyloop. He bent down to pick up some grass at his feet to wipe off his fishing rod when he noticed a black strap sticking out of the riverbank.He pulled it out of the ground and discovered it was a camera case – with a Kodak Instamatic 124 camera inside.The camera, which was made in America, dates back form the late 1960s.Since his discovery, Tony’s discovery has now brought him on a search to America and back in an attempt to find its owner. A surprised Tony said “It was soaking wet. I didn’t know what it was. I pulled the strap and lo and behold it came out.”Tony took the camera home to his house in Clady, Strabane to examine his find further.When it dried out he discovered an identification card inside with an address in New York.In between Tony contacted Fuji who asked him for a serial number from the film in the camera to see if they could process it.He was delighted when the film giant contacted him and then processed a number of black and white shots.The pictures show a number of pictures of people posing at a farm gate and also in front of a car. Tony was delighted and showed the pictures to many people but still had no success.“I showed the pictures to my parents and they felt they recognised someone from them.“They told me to ask my uncle but he didn’t recognise the people in the photo either. The man in the picture looks very familiar – he could be anyone’s grandfather,” said Tony.Frustrated, Tony then decided to contact the person named on the identity card in the camera case. He sent some of the developed black and white pictures and a letter to Tiffany Harrison, 7 Brook Lane, Milford, New York.But he was left even more frustrated when a few weeks later his letter was returned saying the street name did not exist.“I really want to find the owner. It must be of sentimental value to them. It would also give me peace of mind,” said Tony.FISHING FOR MEMORIES PROVES FAR FROM PICTURE PERFECT FOR TONY! was last modified: June 19th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
