pile-of-guns-jpg

Di Malaysia, kita ada larangan membawa masuk rokok, pemetik api dan kadang kala kayu untuk bendera atau kain rentang, tetapi di Stadium Seatlle Seahawks di Amerika Syarikat sedikit berbeza.

Di sana, yang tidak boleh dibawa masuk adalah hon, laptop (kecuali wartawan), ‘kopi khas’ dan bola sendiri. Tetapi, ada satu benda yang dilarang tetapi tiga wakil rakyat Washington mahu ianya dibenarkan dibawa masuk ke stadium: pistol.

Menurut laporan Deadspin.com di Amerika Syarikat, satu Rang Undang-Undang baru diperkenalkanuntuk sesi perbincangan Badan Perundangan yang akan bermula Januari ini, akan membenarkan senjata api yang disimpan dibawa masuk ke Stadium di kawasan Washington. Dengan keadaan semasa, Rang Undang-Undang itu akan menyebabkan petugas keselamatan awam dan swasta di semua stadium, tidak boleh menghalang sesiapa yang membawa senjata secara tertutup.

Rang Undang-Undang yang dibentangkan itu juga mempunyai satu sekyen di mana ia akan menghalang mana-mana bandar atau kejiranan dari mencari jalan keluar:

Kerajaan tempatan tidak boleh, sama ada melalui undang-undang, ordinan, peraturan, perintah, polisi, atau persetujuan bersama, menghalang individu dengan lesen pistol tertutup yang sah daripada membawa pistol yang tertutup di mana-mana stadium, pusat konvensyen, arena, atau mana-mana kemudahan yang sama.

Tiga wakil rakyat di sebalik Rang Undang-Undang ini adalah wakil Republican Matt Shea, David Taylor dan Bob McCaslin.

Screen Shot 2016-11-18 at 18.43.35

The New Zealand Kiwis recently trained with the Liverpool team in England, and thanked them in a very interesting way.

After a good and productive training session, the Kiwis took the opportunity to thanks Liverpool for being a wonderful host, and also presented a token of appreciation to Liverpool’s boss, Jurgen Klopp.

Right after that, the Kiwi’s cultural advisor explained about their haka #TeIwiKiwi dance to their host, and then proceeded to treat Liverpool to a rare performance of the haka dance.

The haka dance is an ancient Maori war dance which was traditionally used on the battlefield.

The New Zealand Kiwis will play at Anfield on Sunday in the Rugby League Four Nations Final.

VIDEO: Pemain NFL cuba membuat rabona…dan gagal

Pittsburgh Steelers v Baltimore Ravens

Kita sudah melihat banyak kali pemain bolasepak membuat sepakan rabona ketika dalam perlawanan. Pemain dengan skil tinggi seperti Angel Di Maria dan Neymar telah berjaya membuat sepakan rabona ini dalam perlawanan bolasepak untuk pasukan mereka.

Namun, pernahkah anda melihat ianya dilakukan dalam perlawanan bolasepak Amerika? Agak pelik apabila sepakan penuh skil itu dilakukan dalam perlawanan bolasepak Amerika yang dikenali dengan permainan fizikal dan taktikalnya.

Pemain Pittsburgh Steelers Chris Boswell, dilihat mencuba melakukan sesuatu yang berbeza dan menarik apabila mencuba sepakan rabona ketika membuat onside kick dalam perlawanan menentang Baltimore Ravens.

Dengan hanya tinggal 48 saat dalam perlawanan itu, Boswell membayangkan dirinya adalah Neymar dan cuba melakukan sepakan itu, namun ianya lebih kepada sepakan David Dunn apabila sepakannya itu tidak menjadi.

Keputusannya? Steelers tewas 14-21. Mungkin selepas ini kita akan melihat pemain NFL membuat sepakan percuma ala Cristiano Ronaldo pula.

Pasukan Ragbi 7-Sebelah Jepun cipta kejutan kalahkan All Blacks

4340

Jepun mencipta kejutan di hari pertama acara ragbi 7-sebelah apabila berjaya menewaskan New Zealand 14-12.

Menambahkan hari duka pasukan All Blacks, mereka kehilangan tonggak utama mereka, Sonny Bill Williams apabila dia terpaksa dikeluarkan di awal separuh masa kedua selepas mengalami kecederaan dan dikatakan bakal terlepas semua perlawanan di Olimpik.

Jepun layak mememangi perlawanan ini, apabila mendahului di awal permainan menerusi Truya Goto dan mengejutkan New Zealand dengan corak permainan pantas mereka.

New Zealand kembali di hadapan menerusi try dari Scott Curry dan Akira Ioane, hanya untuk Jepun menyamakan kedudukan menerusi Kameli Soejima. Katsuyuki Sakai menjarakkan kedudukan menerusi conversion dan Jepun terus bertahan untuk memberikan kejayaan kepada pasukan mereka.

“Kami mula merasa yakin dan New Zealand pula mula bergelut sedikit,” kata pemain Jepun Lomano Lemeki. “Kami berfikir, jika kami terus menggerakkan bola, pemain besar mereka akan letih dan terbukti ia benar. Kami mempunyai perancangan untuk menentang New Zealand- bermain dengan kepantasan kami dan mereka akan bergelut.

“Ini sangat mengejutkan. Kita tidak pernah melihat pasukan kecil datang ke sini dan menewaskan pasukan yang dijangka akan menang pingat emas. Secara jujurnya, saya masih terkejut.”

Australia juga turut dikejutkan oleh Perancis pada hari pertama , sementara Argentina memerlukan jaringan di akhir permainan untuk mengelakkan kekalahan kepada Amerika Syarikat. Pasukan Great Britain memulakan kempen mereka dengan kemenangan mudah 31-7 ke atas Kenya.

haydn-peacock-1-628

AS Carcassonne player Hadyn Peacock has revealed how he suffered a horrific injury during a French Federation of Rugby Elite League 1 match a few weeks ago.

The 23 year-old Australian described how his penis was lacerated after an opposition player grabbed it and pulled it hard while making a tackle to bring him down. Surprisingly, he continued playing and only realized the extent of the injury during half-time.

“At half-time I was like, I’ve got to have a look, I checked on it and the skin was half ripped off and I was like, s***, where’s the doctor? Where’s the doctor? He (the opposition player) made a tackle by reaching out and grabbing my d***, he got a hold of my d*** with one hand and pulled me down,” Hadyn Peacock said to Guy Williams as quoted by Mail Online.

The Sydney-born player underwent surgery and required 11 stitches on his penis, before declining his coach’s order to wear a cup during the next AS Carcassonne game.

He posted a picture of the incident on Instagram with a caption saying: “Not the best reason to be on the front page of the paper this morning. #rugbyleague is definitely not a sport I recommend. 11 stitches later for the little fella but she’ll be right.”

Malaysian Rugby Union gunning for additional funding

DATUK AMIRUDDIN AP

The Malaysian Rugby Union (MRU) will be having a meeting with the National Sports Council (NSC) to discuss on an effective initiative to gather additional funds to ensure a smooth sailing in planning next season’s events.

President of MRU, Datuk Amiruddin Embi claimed that the RM 1 million allocated by the Youth and Sports Ministry during the Agong’s Cup Rugby Championship last October was insufficient to cover all costs, especially in terms of preparing squad 15 to continue playing for the First Division in the 2016 Asian Rugby Championship.

“To play in the First Division, especially facing teams like Kazakhstan, Sri Lanka and Philippines, is not easy. Therefore we need to find additional funds,” said Datuk Amiruddin as quoted from Utusan.

“I will hold a meeting with the Chief Director of NSC, Datuk Ahmad Shapawi Ismail to discuss about this issue.”

“Our main objective is to make sure the team remains in the First Division and also develop the rugby squad.

Jonah_lomu_3420341b

There comes a point in life, when the departure of certain individuals, leaves a tinge of despair that creates a gaping hole in the heart of every sports fan out there. You don’t need to be a Rugby fan, to know what Jonah Lomu meant to the sport and it’s faithful fans.

For many, he was an icon of hope. Jonah wasn’t an ordinary player, he broke records and he set standards for others. He was the youngest player to have ever played for the All Blacks when he made his debut aged 19 years and 45 days.

He went on to thrill a worldwide audience with his ‘no holds barred’ approach in every single game. When you see the All Blacks perform their customary pre-match ‘hakka’, you subconsciously look for Jonah, because you know, his eyes exudes relentless passion.

Even when he was diagnosed with a kidney condition – a news that is capable of crushing any athlete – Jonah stood strong and battled through to set an example to every single individual out there. Unfortunately, the battle ended today. But he leaves a legacy that will never fade away. He leaves a legacy, that will always protect his stature as one of the greatest Rugby player to have ever graced the game. More importantly, he was an amazing human being as well.

Here’s a video that was produced by Sky Sports NZ, featuring Jonah Lomu and the inspiring story of his rise within rugby.
