Fantastic try saving chase & tackle by Tim Bateman

first_imgTuesday Aug 19, 2008 Fantastic try saving chase & tackle by Tim Bateman Canterbury center Tim Bateman produced a pretty special moment against Auckland this weekend in the Air New Zealand Cup, as we saw him chase down Jamie Helleur after an intercept looked destined to result in 7 points.While still a relatively new face to fans around the world, since making his senior debut in 2006, young Tim Bateman has continued to impress whenever he’s worn the famous red and black jersey.His pedigree speaks for itself, as he hails from the esteemed Christchurch Boys High School, following in the footsteps of the likes of Andrew Mehrtens, Aaron Mauger, Daniel Carter, Scott Hamilton and Stephen Brett. His two years playing for the u19’s has also held him in good stead.While Bateman isn’t the biggest center in world rugby, he seemingly makes up for the lack of size with his darting runs and grim determination on defense, as we saw in Christchurch on Saturday.This 75-metre chase to haul down opposition fullback Helleur centimetres from the line was highly impressive, and as the commentators reiterated, will go a long way to earning Bateman the respect and recognition he’ll need to keep rising in New Zealand rugby.With the home side only 5-0 up at that stage, a converted try could have easily shifted the momentum in Auckland’s favour. Batemans chase had a great effect on the whole side morale wise, with their overall effort being lifted for the rest of the match, as front rower Wyatt Crockett testified to.“When they did make half-breaks, we scrambled quite well and that effort from Timmy … I was probably about 90 metres away, hoping he was going to get him. You look up and you see that and it was just a magnificent effort and it lifts everyone. It was massive, psychologically.”Auckland didn’t come close to crossing again in the match, with the the home side Canterbury coming out convincing victors 34-3 in the end.

Blow for Arsenal as Ramsey ruled out until mid-April

first_imgArsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is likely to be sidelined for four weeks with a thigh complaint, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed.The Welshman hobbled off after just 16 minutes during the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Hull City in midweek – with early speculation suggesting he could be ruled out for the season. However, Wenger allayed those fears and said he hoped to have Ramsey back for the run-in.”No, I don’t think he’s out for the season,” said Wenger. “The clinical signs are quite positive. “As a start I would say four weeks. It’s a bit worse than I thought at the time. I thought it would be just a precaution and he would be available for Sunday.” The injury also rules Ramsey out of Wales’ pre-Euro 2016 friendlies against Northern Ireland and Ukraine later in March.Which Arsenal games will Ramsey miss?– March 13: Arsenal v Watford (FA Cup)– March 16: Barcelona v Arsenal (Champions League)– March 19: Everton v Arsenal (Premier League)– April 2: Arsenal v Watford (Premier League)– April 9: West Ham v Arsenal (Premier League)EXPERTS’ VIEW Arsenal’s slim title hopes now rest on unlikely duo Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny in central midfield – and that’s got to concern Mr Wenger. Sure, they will provide adequate cover for the defence, with the duo quite happy to play a simple pass and maintain the midfield shape. But without a driving runner from deep – a la Ramsey – are the Gunners really going to unlock defences? They are eight points behind leaders Leicester City. They have to take risks. With only Coquelin, Elneny and Mathieu Flamini to pick from in the middle, Wenger no longer has that option. —last_img read more
