  • Wales manager Wayne Pivac has named a 33-man squad for their next three-Test series against the Springboks.
  • Flyhalf Dan Biggar retains the captaincy despite the presence of veteran lock Alun Wyn Jones.
  • The three tests will be played in Pretoria (July 2), Bloemfontein (July 9) and Cape Town (July 16).

Wales coach Wayne Pivac named a 33-man squad for a three-test series against the Springboks in July.

Opening half Dan Biggar retains the captaincy despite the veteran Alun Wyn Jones also part of the team. Biggar captained Wales in the Six Nations during Jones’ absence.

“Dan Bigger is made captain. We obviously have great leadership in the group with Alun Wyn and Dan. Dan did well in the Six Nations and Al came back from a pretty big layoff,” Pivac said in a statement. .

“He’s had a bit of rugby and we want him to hit his straps as a second line and be the best player he can be and focus on the game. He’ll lead naturally anyway, but he’s certainly looking forward to picking this up. challenge.”

Wales team:

Attackers: Rhys Carré, Wyn Jones, Gareth Thomas, Ryan Elias, Dewi Lake, Sam Parry, Leon Brown, Tomas Francis, Dillon Lewis, Adam Beard, Ben Carter, Alun Wyn Jones, Will Rowlands, Taine Basham, Taulupe Faletau, Dan Lydiate, Josh Navidi, James Ratti, Tommy Refell

Back : Gareth Davies, Kieran Hardy, Tomos Williams, Gareth Anscombe, Dan Biggar (captain), Rhys Patchell, George North, Nick Tompkins, Owen Watkin, Johnny Williams, Josh Adams, Alex Cuthbert, Louis Rees-Zammit, Liam Williams

Elsewhere, George North and Dan Lydiate return for international duty after long spells out with injury. Joining them in the Wales side are Ospreys team-mate Sam Parry, while Scarlets duo Johnny Williams and Rhys Patchell are also named.

There are two uncapped players in the Wales squad, namely Cardiff Rugby’s James Ratti and Leicester Tigers’ Tommy Refell.

Pivac added: “We’ve had players come back from injury like George North, so that’s exciting for the team. Some players have been ruled out through injury, so naturally there will be some change there. Then we looked at player form, who we play, where we play – we have two games at altitude – and what our game plan will be when considering the selection.

“I spoke to Tommy Reffell before announcing the squad for the Six Nations. We looked at Tommy carefully and decided to leave him out. He’s played really well since then, he’s been very consistent – one one of the most consistent players in the English Premiership so we think he deserves an opportunity and he will be well tested on this tour.”

The first test is scheduled for Saturday July 2 at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, ahead of tests in Bloemfontein (July 9) and Cape Town (July 16)

“This three-Test series is going to be a challenge. It always has been, history shows that and that’s certainly what we’re looking to achieve – to get a win there, if not two, and win a series. The first two tests at altitude are going to be a challenge so first and foremost we need to do a lot of preparation here in Wales before we go and make sure we are in the best possible shape to perform well,” added Pivac.

CEBU CITY, Philippines — Consolacion Sarok Weavers head coach Kareem Alocillo and his precious ward Rojan Montemayor received a warm welcome home in Alegria, southwest Cebu, after their huge success in the Pilipinas Super League (PSL) U21 Aspirants Division Cup.

Alocillo and Montemayor returned to their hometown earlier this week. They paid a courtesy visit to municipal officials at Alegria Town Hall.

Divine Sarmiento, the city’s tourism agent, SK federation president Kim Marie Leguiz and outgoing councilor Emelio Cabañero warmly welcomed them during their courtesy visit.

Alegria is approximately 112 kilometers southwest of Cebu City.

The young manager known for his basic training clinic in Cebu led Sarok Weavers in their dominant run in the PSL U21 Aspirants Division Cup en route to winning the inaugural title last April at Roxas, Zamboanga del Norte.

The Sarok Weavers ended their campaign with a stellar record of 9-1 (win-loss), including their appearance in the semi-finals and the final. They swept the host team, Roxas Vanguards, in the final, 2-0, in their Best-of-Three Finals series.

MVP PSL U21

Montemayor, a former University of Santo Tomas (UST) Tiger Cub, was named the Finals MVP and the league’s Mythical Five for his dominating performance.

Alegria native Barangay Poblacion put in a monstrous double-double performance in their decisive Game 2 victory with 20 points and 21 rebounds.

For Alocillo, welcomed by his hometown, people surely warmed his heart considering that one of his goals in the PSL was to represent Alegria.

“Mao jud na akong aims to represent pud Alegria while coaching Consolacion. Although the municipality of lahi gani nga akong gi represents during the league, I always make sure to honor where I come from,” Alocillo of Barangay Santa Filomena told Alegria.

(It’s my goal to also represent Alegria while coaching Consolacion. Although it’s a different municipality that I represented during the league, I always make sure to honor where I come from.)

“Coming from Alegria, our city is not very well known in the sport, so winning the PSL U21 is very special for Rojan and me. We are always proud of our achievement,” he said.

Sports program trainer

Alocillo said that before being hired as head coach of the Sarok Weavers, he and his father had already started the sports program in the city where they discovered Montemayor.

Alocillo also coached the Alegria basketball team which played in the Cebu Provincial Government Governor’s Cup.

“Nakabuild na mi og team diri ug sports program kami sa akong papa. After denying dad in sports we won the Governor Cup. Amo pud gibuhat was training local coaches nga mao pud makapuli namo kung wala nami didto sa Alegria” , said Alocillo.

(We, my father and I, have built a team here and a sports program. When my father left the sport, I replaced him at the Governor’s Cup. We also trained local coaches who can replace us when we’re not here in Alegria.)

He also revealed that they are already keen to get back into action in the PSL with the Sarok Weavers, whom he considers his family.

Wanted Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has asked to be excused from the Nigeria squad for their upcoming US tour, as they try to put the heartache of their failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup behind them.

A target of Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle among others, the Napoli player’s exclusion from friendlies against Mexico and Ecuador in the United States this month came as a shock, as substitute manager Salisu Yusuf named a 30-man squad on Wednesday.

Osimhen is one of six players – including Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho and former Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo – missing from the squad as the Super Eagles continue their preparations for the European Cup qualifiers. Nations Africa 2023 in June.

An NFF source told ESPN it was Osimhen’s choice to miss out: “He called and asked us to excuse him for personal reasons.

“Of course a striker of his quality is a big loss, but it also gives us the opportunity to look at other players who might have been unlucky if he was there. That includes some of the boys who have done well in the domestic league.”

As for Iheanacho, who started CAN in January under Augustine Eguavoen, and Ighalo, the NFF official said they could well return for the qualifiers against Sierra Leone and São Tomé é Príncipe.

But first, they face Mexico at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas on May 28, and follow that up four days later with a clash against Ecuador at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey.

Other absentees are goalkeepers Francis Uzoho and Daniel Akpeyi. Uzoho has barely played for his club since the mistake that gave Ghana the goal that cost Nigeria a World Cup ticket, while Akpeyi’s time as an international is coming to an end.

Instead, Maduka Okoye returns after missing World Cup qualifiers with COVID, and Yusuf called up two NPFL goalkeepers, namely Enyimba’s Olorunleke Ojo and Akwa United’s Adewale Adeyinka. Both goaltenders are among eight NPFL players selected to the squad.

Feyenoord striker Cyriel Dessers and midfielders Azubuike Okechukwu and Alhassan Yussuf have also been recalled. The recall of Dessers is the reward of an excellent season in the UEFA Europa Conference League, where he is the top scorer with 10 goals.

Substitute coach Yusuf was banned from football following a corruption scandal in 2018, but was reappointed by the NFF as an assistant to a yet-to-be-appointed head coach, and will also combine that with coaching duties. head coach of both B team and U23 teams.

He will lead the Super Eagles as the NFF continues its search for a new coach to replace Gernot Rohr.

The German was fired in December ahead of AFCON as the NFF hoped to turn things around in order to qualify for the World Cup. This bet did not bear fruit and the federation remains blocked in search of a new coach.

As the 2023 qualifier unfolds, Yusuf is expected to take charge of the first two of those qualifiers, assisted by former Ajax star Finidi George.

Those qualifying matches are against Sierra Leone at Abuja in Abuja on June 9, and São Tomé e Príncipe in Marrakech, Morocco on June 13.

  • Estrela Matilde, conservation biologist and executive director of the NGO Fundação Príncipe, has won a Whitley Award for her work saving sea turtles in the small African nation of São Tomé and Príncipe.
  • Fundação Príncipe has been working since 2015 to conserve the biodiversity of Príncipe Island by working with the local community to develop alternative livelihoods that reduce pressure on resources and protect wildlife.
  • Matilde’s attention turned to documenting and fighting plastic pollution after a conservation initiative that put cameras on sea turtles revealed just how plastic marine life Príncipe encounters.
  • She plans to use the prize money to document via GPS the tides of plastic pollution reaching Príncipe and to develop a livelihood project in which local women make trinkets from the plastic that washes up on the beaches of the island. Isle.

Conservation biologist Estrela Matilde has won the 2022 Whitley Prize for her work saving sea turtles on the island of Príncipe in the Gulf of Guinea in Africa.

The awards, often referred to as the “Green Oscars”, are presented annually by UK charity Whitley Fund for Nature, which recognizes conservationists around the world who come up with innovative solutions to the biodiversity crisis.

Matilde, although her NGO Fundação Príncipe, based in Príncipe – the smaller of the two islands that make up the small nation of São Tomé and Príncipe – has been working since 2015 to conserve the island’s biodiversity by working with the local community to develop alternative livelihoods that reduce pressure on resources and protect wildlife.

Recently, his attention has turned to documenting and tackling plastic pollution, after a conservation initiative that put cameras on sea turtles revealed just how plastic marine life Príncipe encounters.

Biodiversity under threat

The whole island of Príncipe is one massive volcano, home to lush rainforest and some of the richest biodiversity in Africa. Its remoteness and volcanic origins have resulted in some of the highest levels of endemism ever seen on Earth, including over 40 unique animal species.

With 64 staff members, Fundação Príncipe implements land and sea conservation projects. Six years ago, the Fundação Príncipe launched its sea turtle conservation project. The island is an important nesting site for sea turtles, with three of the world’s seven species of sea turtles laying their eggs on the beaches here. With turtles being part of the island’s traditional cuisine, hunting for food as well as more organized poaching had led to a decline in turtle populations.

Matilde and her foundation decided to change that.

“We hired former poachers as monitors protecting the nesting beaches while we worked to change the mindset of the community,” Matilde told Mongabay in a phone interview. “We taught them that a turtle is worth more alive than dead, because many tourists come to the island to watch the turtles.”

With a legal ban on the consumption and sale of turtle meat, Matilde and her team report reaching near-zero poaching rates, increasing nest counts by 43% since the 2015-16 breeding season, and doubling the number of newborns released in 130,000.

But when Matilde experimented with new technology, tagging female turtles with video cameras to observe their behavior, she was surprised.

“Videos recorded by tagged turtles had more plastic debris than other turtles, with plastic appearing in almost a third of all footage,” she said.

Through ingestion, entanglement and degradation of the marine environment on which wildlife and local people depend, plastic litter poses an urgent threat to turtles and other marine life.

Matilde soon launched another conservation project aimed at solving the plastic problem, starting a program in which community members collect washed plastic bottles for her NGO, where women-run businesses turn plastics into trinkets. for tourists.

“We were able to collect 750,000 plastic bottles. But we quickly realized that a significant amount of these bottles were not coming from the island but rather being washed ashore from other places,” Matilde said.

Matilde, who applied for the Whitley Prize to expand these efforts, was accepted after a global call for applications and a rigorous process involving a jury of experts. On April 27, she received her award at the Royal Geographical Society in London.

“Estrela is an inspirational leader, empowering the people of Príncipe to embrace environmental and social change,” said Danni Parks, director of the Whitley Fund for Nature, in a press release. “His two-pronged approach to tackling this wave of plastic pollution will ensure that improvements are made across the board, with fair and grassroots recycling businesses backed by policy reform.”

With the Whitley Prize of 40,000 pounds ($50,000), Matilde will track plastic bottles fitted with GPS transmitters to determine where plastic waste comes from and how it moves and accumulates on Príncipe’s beaches. She aims to use the data to spark a political response and hopefully halve the number of plastic bottles reaching the island. It also plans to double the number of waste-based businesses, aiming to use 20% of stranded plastics.

Other Whitley Award winners include Micaela Camino for empowering communities to defend their human rights and conserve Argentina’s Dry Chaco; Sonam Lama for mutually beneficial conservation for humans and red pandas in the Himalayas of Nepal; Dedy Yansyah for the conservation of Sumatran rhinos in the Leuser ecosystem in Indonesia; Emmanuel Amoah for safeguarding the last stronghold of the West African slender-snouted crocodile in Ghana; and Pablo Hoffmann for maintaining the diversity of wild plants in the Araucaria forest in Brazil.

The Whitley Gold Award, worth £100,000, has been awarded to snow leopard expert Charudutt Mishra in India for his groundbreaking work over more than 25 years. Mishra, through her NGO, has worked in all 12 big cat countries, pioneering a community-led approach to conservation.

Luanda — Legal cooperation (legislative production) dominated Monday’s dialogue between the National Assemblies of Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe held in Luanda.

The First Vice President of the National Assembly, Emília Carlota Dias, led the Angolan delegation, while the São Tomé delegation was led by her counterpart Guilherme Octávio dos Ramos.

In statements to the press, Carlota Dias and Guilherme dos Ramos confirmed the need to strengthen cooperation in the field of law-making between the two parliaments.

They considered it essential that the two parliaments exchange their experiences on the functioning of their respective legislative bodies, as well as in the field of parliamentary administration.

Carlota Dias also considered it essential to encourage the Heads of State for the dynamism, more and more, of the cooperation between the two countries.

In turn, Guilherme Octávio dos Ramos suggested the exchange of experiences on parliamentary representation itself and its respective working committees.

He is of the opinion that as it is a direct popular emanation, it is necessary to make a local legislature, representing the voters.

The deputies are part of the entourage of the President of the Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, Carlos Manuel Vila Nova, who since Sunday has been on a state visit to Angola.

Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe formalized cooperation in February 1978, through the General Friendship and Cooperation Agreement, and the institutionalization of the Joint Bilateral Commission, created in January 1980.
