Leicester Tigers press in brief: five things we learned

first_img The Shop Tiger test Leicester Tigers look set to welcome back a host of internationals this weekend, and Lam said his players are relishing the challenge of taking them on. “It’s what we want, we want to play the best teams with the best players,” he said.”That’s what rugby is about, you want to play at the highest level, it’s why you want to be in the Premiership.” Stepping up Lam called on his players to step up to the plate at Ashton Gate in front of another impressive home crowd.”When we spoke about, it’s just about making sure that within the team, individuals have to make sure they do whatever it takes to step up,” he said.“It’s another good crowd expected, and we love being at home, but ultimately, we understand the challenge we face.” The full 80 Jordan Crane said Bristol Bears must deliver an 80-minute performance on Saturday. “There’s good competition for places out there and so every time you put that shirt on you’ve got to play for 80 minutes.”The final part of the Wasps game was a positive and we need to carry that into Saturday. We know it’s going to be a stern test, but we’re prepared for that up for the challenge.”center_img Physicality Physicality was the buzz word for both Pat Lam and Jordan Crane ahead of Saturday’s clash with Leicester Tigers. “Leicester have got the history, they’ve got the reputation,” said Lam. “When you look at them at this time of year, their whole game is based traditionally around physicality. So, that’s a great challenge for our boys.”Crane added: “Ultimately, it’s about us and what we bring – energy, the physicality, what we bring at home for our fans and if we get it right, we’ll be there or there abouts.” Fighting spirit Jordan Crane praised Bristol Bears’ fighting spirit in battling back from 32-7 down to almost snatch a dramatic win against Wasps. “The way that the boys fought and got themselves back into the game and with a chance of winning – and to come away with two points shows how much we’ve grown and how strong the group is together,” he said.”Hopefully that will spring-board us into this week, taking that momentum into the week and going into Leicester back at home, it will help us going forward.”last_img read more

Harrison thriving in his new role with the Patriots

Harrison has six tackles and a quarterback hit in the Patriots’ two postseason wins. (AP Photo/Steven Senne, File) FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — James Harrison is headed back to the Super Bowl.And he says the only thing he’s focused on is winning a third championship.Everything else is secondary for the 39-year-old Patriots linebacker, who is thriving in his new role with the team that was once his rival.“That’s the goal. To win the Lombardi (Trophy). There’s only one winner,” Harrison said as he prepared to make his first trip to the Super Bowl since the 2008 season, when he captured his second ring with Pittsburgh.He’s done talking about his abrupt departure from the Steelers last month and the suggestions from his former teammates that it was Harrison who asked to be released after complaints about playing time.In a lengthy post on Instagram days after joining the Patriots, Harrison responded directly to his critics, writing: “If anybody thought I signed a two-year deal with a team in the NFL at age 39 to sit on the bench and collect a check and a participation trophy, they’re mistaken. I didn’t sign up to sit on the bench and be a cheerleader.”What’s not in dispute is that Harrison’s playing time decreased significantly this season with the Steelers.The Steelers’ sack leader with 80½ in 14 seasons in Pittsburgh, Harrison appeared in just five games and played a total of 38 snaps for them this season. He had only one sack. His five appearances were his fewest since his first season in Pittsburgh in 2002.After being released on Dec. 23, Harrison signed with New England in time to play in the Patriots’ regular-season finale against the Jets. He had three tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in his debut.In one regular season and two playoffs games with the Patriots, he’s already been on the field for 89 snaps.“I’m doing whatever they ask me to do,” Harrison said. “I’m getting more snaps than I had (in Pittsburgh), and I like that.”As to whether he has something to prove at this point in his career, he said that has always been his mindset.“Anything people say I can’t do, I want to prove them wrong,” Harrison said.He says it would be impossible for him to feel truly acclimated after just three games, but he has an appreciation for the way the Patriots approach things.Safety Devin McCourty said Harrison’s work ethic has been noticeable.“I think younger guys, a lot of younger guys on the team compared to him, can learn from him,” McCourty said. “I think we all saw that from Day 1 when he came in here bright and early getting whatever he needs done.”Coach Bill Belichick praised Harrison’s ability to handle the different things they’ve asked of him.“This guy is a professional. He’s into football. He’s into his job and wants to do it well,” Belichick said. “I, 100 percent totally respect that. That’s what you want from everybody.”Harrison started at outside linebacker in the AFC title game against Jacksonville and is in line to start again alongside Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts against the Eagles.Whatever happens, Harrison is secure in the decisions he’s made.“It feels good, but like I’ve said before, this is all God’s plan,” he said. “This is all his doing. I’m just reaping the benefits of it right now.”___More AP NFL: and Kyle Hightower on Twitter at read more

Box Expands Mobile Support, Validates the Mobile Enterprise

first_imgToday, Box announced a tablet-optimized Android app, a PlayBook app (the company’s first native app for any BlackBerry platform) and a new HTML5 mobile site. The Android version replaces the company’s existing Android app and will work with both smartphones and tablets, optimizing the view depending on the device.More interesting than the actual app announcements, Box CEO Aaron Levie revealed that the company has seen a 600% increase in enterprise sales regarding mobile. And yes, that’s specifically enterprise sales, not overall sales. For example, Proctor and Gamble just became a Box customer based largely on the company’s mobile support.Screenshot of the Box app on an Android tablet.We’ve seen an explosion of enterprise mobile applications, especially tablet apps (as we’ve documented here on an at least weekly basis). But it hasn’t been clear to what degree enterprises are actually demanding and taking advantage of these apps. Box’s experience indicates that enterprises are indeed looking for these solutions.In the past, I’ve wondered how Box would stand out in the market. Among large enterprises, SharePoint already has a huge marketshare, and companies like Newsgator and are making it more palatable to end users. Now that you can upload any file format to Google Docs, Google Apps is shoring up a lot of the mid-market, and Dropbox and Google Docs have become the de facto standards for document sharing and collaboration between individual professionals. So where would Box, and its competitors like Huddle, fit into this (especially with Apple iCloud now on the scene)?Box seems to have solved by building niche with its mobile support (the company received a leading position in the Forrester Wave on mobile collaboration) and possibly also through its integrations with Google Docs, SharePoint and various ECM systems. Box is now positioning itself as a way to glue together Google Docs and ECM systems and as a way to take documents mobile while maintaining enterprise security (thanks in part to its partnership with VMware).Disclosure: VMware is a ReadWriteWeb sponsor Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#mobile 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affaircenter_img klint finley Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

Highway Patrol preps for busy weekend on roads, water

first_img(Missourinet) Every available Missouri state trooper is on the road and water on Friday and will be throughout the Labor Day holiday weekend.Missouri State Highway Patrol Sergeant Scott White says 11 motorists were killed and another 470 were injured in Missouri traffic crashes during the 2018 Labor Day holiday.“We worked almost 1,100 crashes last year during the Labor Day holiday and we arrested 113 people for driving while intoxicated,” White says.Sergeant White tells Missourinet troopers are participating in Operation C.A.R.E. this Labor Day holiday weekend. That stands for crash awareness and reduction effort.“And we know that the peak travel days are going to be Friday and Monday,” says White. “And what that means is we’re going to have as many troopers out there as possible enforcing the speed limit laws, seat belt, impaired driving laws.”Troopers will also be assisting motorists throughout the holiday weekend.Meantime, every available Missouri state trooper from the marine division will be on the water throughout the entire Labor Day holiday weekend. White says troopers worked seven boating crashes during the 2018 holiday. None of them involved fatalities.“All of our marine enforcement troopers will be out there working the waterways,” White says. “And what that means is they’ll be working extended shifts, they’ll be working 10 to 12-hour shifts to make sure that they’re out there.”White says people tend to be safer when they see state troopers in boats. He urges boaters to check their vessel’s navigation lights and to have spare bulbs on board.He’s also urging boaters to wear a life jacket and to avoid alcohol. State troopers made 15 arrests for boating while intoxicated during the 2018 holiday.last_img read more
