Who would be first pick in a Gallagher Premiership Draft?

first_img TAGS: Highlight No leading European or southern hemisphere competition has held a draft, yet the prospect is alluring, as USA Rugby’s chief analyst Jimmy Harrison explains.“It’s almost like the teams gambling a bit, because they’re putting all their future into this player,” says Harrison. “There’s the excitement that this guy could make our franchise the next great team for the next ten years – or he might not pan out. It’s exciting for the team and exciting for the players.”In such a crowded sporting landscape, it might be a way for rugby to set itself apart from other sports. Consumers like to enjoy more content than solely the on-field product – and so the excitement of a draft might just form part of rugby’s fight for Generation Z.Moreover, draft systems allow for an equalising of the league, with bottom-dwellers given the first opportunity to select a future star. If Gallagher Premiership ring-fencing goes ahead, a draft system could be the way to go.Fantasy Gallagher Premiership Draft: How would it work?Consider this: the Premiership’s finest talent from the 1998-99 school year and younger all eligible in a Premiership draft. Players such as Marcus Smith, Louis Rees-Zammit, Cameron Redpath, Alfie Barbeary and Ollie Lawrence.Quarterback Trevor Lawrence is one of the top picks in the 2021 NFL Draft (Getty Images)If the current league table was flipped, with Worcester getting the first pick and top-of-the-table Bristol choosing last, how would this fantasy draft develop? What positions would be prioritised?Former England prop Alex Corbisiero says: “It’s basically the areas that you spend big on, the tighthead and fly-half as two of the higher-paid players. Potentially a lineout-operating second-row, or other pieces like that which are hard to replace, or where it’s high value to bring people in. It’s going to come down to the teams drafting players in the position they need.”Aside from the big names, Corbisiero also reserves praise for some lesser-known forwards.“Marcus Street at Exeter Chiefs. Joe Heyes. Manny Iyogun. Marcus is starting for Exeter at only 21! Players like Chunya Munga – the second-row at London Irish. 100%. He is going to be a stud.”Related: How a Premiership Draft could change English rugbyBearing Corbisiero’s views in mind, and with Worcester ready to make the first selection – how will the Fantasy Gallagher Premiership Draft pan out?Fantasy Gallagher Premiership Draft: Who would be picked?1. Worcester Warriors – Marcus Smith (DoB – 14 February 1999)Worcester select their fly-half of both the present and future by drafting Harlequins standout Smith as the #1 pick. They immediately get themselves a top-tier starting ten who, if he still can’t catch Eddie Jones’s eye, will be available for the entirety of the season.Worcester have lacked a distinctive attacking identity since their return to the Premiership – an issue Smith is sure to address. Like Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence at the top of the NFL Draft – a slam-dunk pick. 2. Newcastle Falcons – Ioan Lloyd (DoB – 5 April 2001)Another fly-half-needy team, but with Marcus Smith off the board, there are no regular starting options. There is an intriguing young crop of playmakers emerging, headlined by Lloyd, Charlie Atkinson, George Barton and Manu Vunipola.Already capped by Wales, Lloyd has shown the most flashes thus far in a fledgling career – and has the versatility to cover a variety of positions in the backs. Newcastle’s back-line possibly lacks a game-breaker; Lloyd will provide that wherever he plays. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Who would be first pick in a Gallagher Premiership Draft? One of the most intriguing events in the American sporting calendar is the NFL Draft. With a potentially generational class of quarterbacks waiting to be chosen, the world’s sporting media will gather in Cleveland this week to see the dreams of players be realised.A primetime event, drafts are filled with glitz and glamour – but they are more than mere razzmatazz.Athletes build their brands through the spotlight of professionalism, scouting networks are rigorously tested, while fans feel a burgeoning optimism that their franchise has drafted the league’s next superstar. For one weekend a year, every side is hopeful.So, what if such a draft existed in rugby? Well, aficionados may note that Major League Rugby held its inaugural draft in June 2020. Winger Conner Mooneyham had the honour of being the first-ever rugby draftee, chosen by the Dallas Jackals. Cameron Redpath may have been an enticing option as a long-term replacement for Jimmy Gopperth.5. Leicester Tigers – Cameron Redpath (DoB – 23 December 1999)Leicester’s youth academy is back at the front of the talent production line, with players such as George Martin, Jack van Poortvliet, Joe Heyes and Freddie Steward stars in the making. You look at Leicester and Steve Borthwick’s philosophy, and a forward seems the obvious selection. With minutes until England U20s take on Scotland, get to know full back @freddiesteward_ Watch live (KO 19:30) https://t.co/lennBj4L5J#SCOvENG pic.twitter.com/WjG55AI9fz— England Rugby (@EnglandRugby) February 7, 2020 10. Sale Sharks – Marcus Street (DoB – 6 February 1999)Can you imagine Alex Sanderson turning down the opportunity to sign one of the most promising young tightheads in the league? Street mauled current French senior prop Jean-Baptiste Gros when they faced off at U20 level.Would form a frightening front-row combination with Coenie Oosthuizen and Akker van der Merwe. However, the second-receiver role is so important in modern rugby, so the chance to pick up Redpath might be too tantalising for Borthwick to resist. 11. Exeter Chiefs – George Martin (DoB – 18 June 2001)For teams near the top of the league, the draft is a luxury. Exeter’s squad lacks any obvious weaknesses and has an excellent age profile. So what should their drafting philosophy be? To fortify existing strengths.Rob Baxter will relish taking Martin – a hybrid second-row/flanker who has already been capped by England. He projects as a long-term replacement for 32-year-old Don Armand, while there is no better place for him to fill-out his bulk than Sandy Park.George Martin training with England (Getty Images)12. Bristol Bears – Freddie Steward (DoB – 5 December 2000)With Max Malins returning to Saracens, Bristol will be looking for a top-quality replacement full-back. With Ioan Lloyd snaffled by Newcastle, the choice here has to be Steward.He is already one of the best aerial specialists in the league and has established himself as Leicester’s starting full-back at only 20 years old.Josh Hodge or Bath’s Tom de Glanville might be others to consider.center_img 8. Northampton Saints – Joe Heyes (DoB – 13 April 1999)When Northampton have won this season, it has been based on a rapidly improving scrum. Expect them to double-down on this, plus get one over on their East Midlands rivals Leicester, by bringing in tighthead prospect Heyes.The first prop off the board, the position is difficult to evaluate at such a young age but Heyes, who has just turned 22, has already made 65 appearances in the Leicester front row and has been called into England training camps by Eddie Jones.Joe Heyes carries for Leicester (Getty Images)9. Harlequins – Charlie Atkinson (DoB – 6 October 2001)Harlequins lost Marcus Smith to the first pick of the draft, so a fly-half has to be the choice here. Atkinson’s sprightly demeanour bears the closest resemblance to Smith, with George Barton and Manu Vunipola also possibilities.Quins were unafraid to throw Smith the starting ten jersey at only 18, so the same chance coming to Atkinson at 19 is no cause for concern.Scrum coach Adam Jones may have pushed to retain promising tighthead Fin Baxter. Unlucky to have his debut Six Nations curtailed by injury, the ball-playing 12 would form an absolutely lethal combination with George Ford.Expect Leicester to have given serious thought to retaining Joe Heyes as Dan Cole’s successor at tighthead.6. Bath – Ollie Lawrence (DOB – 18 September 1999)Lawrence might have expected to go higher in the draft, having already been capped six times by Eddie Jones. However, with Bath having had Cameron Redpath nabbed by Leicester, they’re in the market for a centre.A back-line containing Lawrence alongside Danny Cipriani, Jonathan Joseph, Joe Cokanasiga and Anthony Watson is a salivating thought – giving Bath a side with more sauce than a Heinz factory.Anthony Watson and Ollie Lawrence during an England camp (Getty Images)7. London Irish – Ted Hill (DoB – 26 March 1999)Jimmy Harrison has stressed the importance of drafting young leaders and Hill fits that description. After all, he was made Worcester captain at the absurdly young age of 21?!London Irish are replete with young talent in the backs, and while the temptation to retain Ollie Hassell-Collins must be strong, the chance to not only add forward muscle but also gain captaincy experience is too much to resist. 4. Wasps – Alfie Barbeary (DoB – 5 October 2000)Wasps are set at fly-half and tighthead prop – with Jacob Umaga less than two months over the age limit. This allows Lee Blackett’s side to go BPA – best player available.They’d be desperate to keep Barbeary, possibly the league’s most exciting emerging forward, whether he settles at hooker or back-row. His selection guarantees Wasps a destructive ball-carrier for the next decade. Alfie Barbeary, Joe Heyes, Ioan Lloyd, Ted Hill and Marcus Smith (Getty Images) Can’t get to the shops?

Gloucester – Louis Rees-Zammit (DoB – 2 February 2001)A wealth of options for Gloucester. Having signed Adam Hastings from Glasgow, they’re no longer in the market for a fly-half, but with a possible need at prop, might they be tempted to take a forward?Ultimately, it’s hard to see them spurning the opportunity to keep Wales’ Rees-Zammit at Kingsholm. While wing isn’t a crucial position comparatively, Rees-Zammit’s Six Nations form proved him a transcendent talent.

The father of three had hoped to raise £1,000.He wrote on his JustGiving page:“I want to support the charity MIND, raise awareness towards the great support that they offer, and help bring an end to the stigma that is attached to those who suffer from mental health problems.“I have had my own misfortune to suffer from a spate of poor mental health, which was unexpected and has been a real ‘game changer’ in how I now view the future.”He added: Advertisement “There are those who are not so fortunate to have the same level of support and understanding. They suffer in silence and are alone. This challenge is for those people.”He was hit by a car near Chestfield in Kent in the early hours of 22 March. An 18 year old woman was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and causing death by dangerous driving. A 19 year old man was also arrested by police on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and then bailed pending further investigation.Christian Smith’s family posted an update to his JustGiving page, saying:“Taking on this challenge was Christian’s way of doing something positive to make sure that people facing mental health problems are not alone and the many messages of support and generosity of donations are a great comfort to us at this extremely sad and difficult time.”Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, said:“We were shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Christian Smith. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this extremely difficult time.“Mind is grateful for the continued dedication of all our fundraisers, without whom we would not be able to support the hundreds of thousands of people affected by mental health problems across England and Wales.”Photo: bike wheel by Alex Norkin on Shutterstock.comcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Donations pass £65k for cyclist killed fundraising for Mind About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Detroit against foreclosures & for housing for people, not banks

first_imgMoratorium NOW! Coalition fighting for water and housing as rights in Michigan.A public forum on June 17 addressed the continuing tax foreclosure crisis in Detroit that has left thousands of families facing imminent eviction from their homes.  The forum was organized by the Coalition to Stop Unconstitutional Property Tax Foreclosures, composed of many community groups including the Moratorium Now! Coalition, Detroit BYP100, the Detroit People’s Platform, the United Community Housing Coalition and the American Civil Liberties Union.Bernadette Atuahene, Wayne State University visiting law professor and coalition organizer, described the scope of the crisis.  Professor Atuahene explained how between 2011 and 2015, one in four properties in Detroit was foreclosed on for unpaid property taxes by the Wayne County treasurer, a number not seen since the 1930’s depression.  When you combine the effect of tax foreclosures with the 65,000 mortgage bank foreclosures that also took place, Detroit has approximately one-third fewer occupied homes now than ten years ago.Property tax rates are calculated based on the home’s tax assessment.  Atuahene pointed out that despite the Michigan Constitution explicitly providing that no property can be assessed at more than 50 percent of its market value, between 2009 and 2015, 55 to 85 percent of homes in Detroit were over-assessed.  The taxes levied based on the inflated assessments on these homes and the ensuing foreclosures for unpaid taxes that occurred, were in blatant violation of the Michigan Constitution.Predatory lending targeted Black communitiesProfessor Atuahene presented data showing how home property values in Detroit declined from $80,000 in 2007 to less than $20,000 in 2011, and are at around $30,000 today.  This was a direct result of 65,000 bank foreclosures in the city between 2005 and 2009, when the banks targeted Detroit’s African-American residents for predatory, fraudulent, subprime and adjustable rate mortgage loans.  Detroit, which formerly had the highest rate of African-American homeownership in the country, now ranks near the bottom.After foreclosing on families’ homes, and being paid off by the government through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for their losses, the banks then sold the foreclosed homes at vastly reduced prices to investors.  These investors further contributed to the tax foreclosure crisis by renting the properties or placing unsuspecting buyers into land contracts; not paying the property taxes; and allowing the homes to go into tax foreclosure leading to the evictions of unsuspecting occupants.  A speaker at the forum, Sonya Bennett, described how this process left her family facing the loss of their home this fall.Forum speakers also explained how tens of thousands of Detroiters were denied poverty tax exemptions which would have reduced their property tax rates anywhere from 50 percent to paying no taxes at all, when the city and county withheld information about exemption entitlements to Detroit families.   A representative of the ACLU described its class action lawsuit challenging the unconstitutional tax assessments and for Fair Housing Act violations in the denial of the hardship exemptions.  Monica Patrick, from We the People of Detroit, linked the fight against water shutoffs to the anti-tax foreclosure fight.Banks benefit from federal bailout funds The forum also discussed the denial of federal Hardest Hit Funds to homeowners to pay off delinquent property tax bills.  Hardest Hit Funds are the pittance provided homeowners from the $750 billion bank bailout. The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA), which administers the Step Forward program that distributes these federal funds, placed so many impediments to residents’ eligibility for them, they made the funds virtually inaccessible.  In contrast, MSHDA turned over hundreds of millions in Hardest Hit Funds to the Detroit Land Bank to tear down homes with no oversight whatsoever, leading to massive corruption and criminal fraud investigations of the “blight removal” program.The coalition is demanding a moratorium on tax foreclosures of occupied residences until the taxes are reassessed to their true value and hardship exemptions are provided on a retroactive basis to all families entitled to it.  It is also demanding that the Step Forward regulations be rewritten to free up the Hardest Hit Funds to keep families in their homes.Make banks pay reparationsIn workshops comprised of activists and homeowners facing foreclosures, as well as families who have already lost their homes, the issue of compensation for the tens of thousands of Detroiters who have been displaced was taken up.  Several workshops raised how the banks that began the housing crisis in Detroit with their fraudulent practices should be targeted with a demand for reparations for the harm they have caused.  Also, that the 30,000 homes appropriated by the Detroit Land Bank from tax foreclosures be given to Detroit families in need of housing as a result of the illegal practices of both the banks, and Wayne County and city of Detroit officials.June 28 has been designated “A Day of Action” by the Moratorium Now! Coalition.  At 9:30 a.m., activists will attend the MSHDA monthly board meeting at the State of Michigan Building at Cadillac Place in Detroit to address the misuse of Hardest Hit Funds and their immediate release to families in need of aid to save their homes.At noon on June 28, Moratorium Now! is calling for a demonstration at the Wayne County Treasurer’s Office, 400 Monroe, to demand a one-year moratorium on evictions of any families from occupied, tax foreclosed homes.  June 28 is currently the last day before the tax foreclosed homes are designated for auction.

Harvest Forecast: Cooler Temps for the Weekend Before Weekday Warm Up

first_img By Ryan Martin – Oct 2, 2020 A chilly start to this weekend with cold air holding over the state. However, we also start the weekend off dry for Saturday. Rain will arrive on Sunday, though, bringing another slight pause to harvest activity. The system pushes in from the west and will bring scattered showers with 75% coverage. Moisture totals are not that impressive but will yield a few hundredths to no more than half an inch. A majority of the areas that see rain will be in the lower half to third of that range. All action ends by midnight Sunday night.Another quick push of cool air follows that system for early Monday morning. However, we do see good sun emerging for most of the rest of the week, which will boost temps quickly. WE should finish Monday near normal, and then be above normal on temps by Wednesday.On Wednesday, we are tracking low pressure moving from the Canadian prairies across far northern MN, Lake Superior and northern WI, and MI. The low actually moves across the thumb of MI Wednesday afternoon. This fast moving little low will trigger showers to the north, but at this time, we do not think it will bring rain this far south. Clouds will be around on Wednesday, especially in northern Indiana, but it should be breezy. With no rain, there will not be any impact on harvest. But, behind the front that moves through, we do correct temps back lower a bit for Thursday and early Friday. We expect decent sunshine those days, though.We finish the week and weekend with another surge of temps to the upside. We should be well above normal next weekend with excellent drying and evaporation. No rain expected. This continues into Monday the 12th. The map below shows total rain potential for the next 10 days. Pretty much all of this comes Sunday.Extended Period:The extended 11-16 day forecast period starts with a continuation of the pattern at the end of the 10 day…we stay warm and dry likely from the 13th through the 16th. However, around the 13th we are starting to watch a system try and develop over the western US in the central Rockies. Any weather system that develops in the mountains has a difficult road to move along to end up bringing moisture here. However, we will be watching to see if it is able to exit the Rockies with any moisture or pressure gradient intact in the central plains. If it can, that may signal a threat of moisture closer to the 17th or 18th as we finish the extended period. However, we have low odds of that at this time. The extended period looks good for full harvest progress over Indiana.Weeks 3 & 4:Warmer than normal and drier than normal patterns continue through the end of the month. We see no significant rain makers in either week three or four. That is not to say it wont rain. However, any moisture we see moving through will be similar to what we have in the near term forecast…a few hundredths to few tenths, perhaps triggering a slight pause in harvest activity, but then resuming quickly.Week 3Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above)Week 4Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above) Previous articleFall Is the Perfect Time for Soil SamplingNext articlePurdue Crop Chat Episode 10, Strong Early Yields Ryan Martin Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Harvest Forecast: Cooler Temps for the Weekend Before Weekday Warm Up Home Indiana Agriculture News Harvest Forecast: Cooler Temps for the Weekend Before Weekday Warm Up SHARE SHARElast_img read more
