The other was stitching Xavier Rush up on a blind date and videoing him – that was my masterplan. He gave a girl his number and then we got a friend he didn’t know to text him pretending to be the girl and arranging to meet up. We interviewed him about the date and filmed him getting ready, showering, shaving and so on. Then we went to the bar where they were meeting, sat upstairs and filmed him sitting downstairs with a bottle of wine and two glasses! That was pretty good – but I’m watching over my shoulder in case he tries to get me back.Find out what Tom Shanklin’s next career move is – and how he would shake up the game – in the July issue of Rugby World, on sale Tuesday 7 June. Get in: Peel and Jones in happier times pre-sheep LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Best friend…There’s so many. I really enjoyed the era with Wales from 2003 to 2005. That’s where we grew up as a squad. They’re the ones who understand where we’d come from and where we’d got to.Worst room-mate…There have been a few. Gethin Jenkins always wants everyone to leave his room and he snores badly. They’ve combated that by giving him his own room.Get in! Peel and Jones in happier times pre-sheepBest practical joke…There’s been loads – I’ll pick two. The first is Mark Jones putting a sheep in Dwayne Peel’s room at the 2007 World Cup. Mark’s very good with animals having grown up on a farm so he managed to get the sheep in there, then it did its business everywhere! Last hurrah: Shanklin makes a break against New Zealand in his final Wales Test in November 2010TOM SHANKLIN’S rugby-playing days were brought to an end in April when he was forced to retire because of a knee injury. The centre’s club career took in London Welsh, Saracens and Cardiff Blues, where he spent eight years, while he also followed his father, Jim, in donning a Wales jersey. During his ten-year international career he won 70 caps and scored 20 tries for Wales, and was also selected for two Lions tours, though injury curtailed his involvement in 2005 and ruled him out before the squad even travelled to South Africa four years later.As he embarks on life outside of rugby, we asked Shanklin to look back on his career and pick out a few highlights.Half century: in action during his 50th TestBest memory… Winning my 50th cap and walking out first (against Italy at the Millennium Stadium in February 2008)Best game… The 2005 Grand Slam win over Ireland – it was just so long since Wales had won one. The way we won the whole tournament, the way the day went, the crowd – everything was great.Worst game… Fiji at the 2007 World Cup. It was gutting to be knocked out of the tournament. Also being part of the run of ten straight losing games before the 2003 World Cup – and playing in most of them.Best team-mate… I’ve played with so many centres. At the start of my career Tim Horan (Saracens) was a massive influence. I learnt a lot playing with him and I still keep in contact with him. I really enjoyed playing with Jamie Robinson at Cardiff Blues, and alongside Gareth Thomas too.

The poor handling of the Marler case, the Chiefs’ va-va-voom backs, Stuart Hogg’s stellar Six Nations and the residency rule that needs tightening are all covered The problem isn’t social media’s alone, rugby advertising has fallen into a similar trap. Advertisers are obviously constrained in the amount of ‘rugby’ that they can show, due to image rights. But why do advertising campaigns have to focus on the size of players’ biceps and chests, and not on the dexterity of their hands and feet. When was the last time you saw a rugby ad that didn’t feature a player with his arms folded, flexing his biceps? Rugby needs an image change.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It was a wonderful moment when Stuart Hogg was named 2016 Player of the Tournament. It represented a shift in the appreciation of rugby skill-sets and a return to attacking rugby getting the nod over robustness – the previous five years’ awards having been largely won by defensively-orientated players such as Paul O’Connell (2015), Leigh Halfpenny (2013), Dan Lydiate (2012) and Andrea Masi (2011). Rugby needs to once again reward the 50m line break and the ability to beat, not merely collide, with a defender – both of which Hogg produced at will during March.Jumping: Stuart Hogg was a worthy winner of the Six Nations Player of the TournamentThe reality is that Hogg wasn’t the most defensively solid full-back in this year’s tournament – that would be Liam Williams or Mike Brown. He wasn’t the most comfortable under the high ball either – that award would go to Anthony Watson, Liam Williams or Dan Biggar. But Hogg was certainly the most feared individual with the ball in hand, and that is a rare trait in northern hemisphere rugby. Hat tip, Mr Hogg.Residency rule is tarnishing legitimate playersAfter endless scrum resets, rugby’s residency rule has long been the game’s most pressing issue. The reality is that a three-year residency is nowhere near long enough to qualify for Test status in an adopted country. It’s ludicrous. Pretty soon you’ll probably be able to go on a fortnight’s holiday in Disneyland Paris and play for France the week after – probably performing better than the current players in the process. But the real problem is that the rugby faithful’s lack of support, and trust, in the current residency rule is tarnishing those players who have a right to play for a country.Justifiable claim: Ben Te’o has a legitimate claim to play for England, if selectedThe prime example being Ben Te’o. England‘s reported interest in the Leinster centre sparked a misplaced social media backlash. Those lashing back were largely quoting the residency rule – but Te’o has an English mother. He has as much right to play for England as any of the current English squad – more than some in fact. The residency rule needs to be changed if only to protect those who can justifiably play for a nation.Rugby advertising needs a new briefRugby, especially in the northern hemisphere, has a bit of an image problem. This year’s Six Nations, in particular, received criticism for the style of rugby that was played. It was rugby where muscle mass has taken precedence over ability. But this image problem doesn’t exist purely on the field, it permeates deeper into rugby culture – particularly advertising and brand engagement.Pumping tin: Rugby prides itself on its macho cultureThe social media feeds of Test teams, and clubs, are dominated by players in the gym. Twitter is regularly bombarded with tweets of player bench-pressing and deadlifting stupid amounts of tin in the gym – but we rarely see a rugby ball. Digital content tends to focus on players repeatedly flipping giant tractor tyres or pulling ropes – I’m yet to see a team lift the Rugby World Cup having excelled at flipping 600lb of moulded rubber. Shambles: The handling of the Joe Marler affair has been an embarrassment Rugby cannot be above racial slursThe alleged ‘Gypsy boy’ incident between Joe Marler and Samson Lee, and its subsequent handling, remains a blemish on this year’s RBS 6 Nations. The comments themselves were damaging enough, particularly having been heard on mainstream TV in the middle of the day, but the way in which the incident has been handled is arguably far more acrid.The reality is that rugby is out of step with society when it comes to issues of this nature. This is an accusation that rugby, as a whole, will find difficult to take. After all, rugby does have a superiority complex when it comes to matters of ethics. Rugby is a game which takes pride in not feigning injury, minimising foul play and providing a space where all genders and races can openly share a pint and a chat after the game.Cloud hanging over: Joe Marler has continued playing with a discplinary hanging over himBut for reasons unknown, some of rugby’s professional bodies deem a comment, which contravenes the Equality Act of 2010, suitably atoned for with an apology at half-time. The debate shouldn’t even centre on Lee’s response to the comments. It doesn’t matter if Lee wasn’t offended by Marler’s words, it was probably water off a duck’s back – an 18st duck with a 75in neck sitting on top of it. The consideration must be that a ten-year-old boy or girl from a travelling community isn’t exposed to comments of this nature.Nobody wants Marler banned for 50 weeks and locked up in Belmarsh, but what is required is an acceptance that something inappropriate has occurred and that a suitable outcome is delivered. It is unfair to label this situation a media witch-hunt; it is a matter of rugby fitting in with societal norms, not the other way around.Chiefs are moving rugby forwardMarch saw the Chiefs, of Waikato not Exeter, deliver some of the finest attacking play that Super Rugby has ever seen – and that’s saying something. It’s misleading to call it rugby – the truth is that they are almost playing a new sport. Such is the variety of passing and offloading that it verges on a heady fusion of rugby and basketball.Kiwi rugby has always specialised in passing before contact, but the Chiefs are currently moving up a level. Against Western Force, they frequently executed what can only be labelled as a traditional basketball pass, where the player’s feet and shoulders were aimed directly at the supporting player – the ball was then passed with one hand stabilising the ball and the other delivering the momentum. The result being hugely accurate short-range passing.Different level: Damian McKenzie and the Chiefs have been playing sublime rugbyThe Chiefs are also the world’s finest exponents of the ‘through-the-back’ reverse offload – where the three contact points of the wrist, palm and fingers lock the ball in the perfect position for an accurate offload. Combine this ability to pass with a squad of players who seemingly have sweat glands that are able to seep Pritt Stick, and you have the model for the next decade of Kiwi rugby.This paradigm shift doesn’t merely rest with handling either, but also with player selection. Damian McKenzie, the Chiefs full-back, is currently carving up Super Rugby, yet he stands at just 5ft 7in and weighs a mere 12st 7lb. If you want to see the way rugby will evolve over the next decade, watch the Chiefs.Hogg the right choice for Six Nations Player of the Tournament
By Alex ShawWhat a difference a year makes.After bowing ignominiously out of their own Rugby World Cup at the pool stage in 2015, England have embarked on a 14-match winning streak – equalling the national record set by Martin Johnson and his side in 2003 – and become only the second side in the professional era to see out a calendar year with a 100% record.The road wasn’t without its bumps over the last month and we take stock of the positives and negatives to come out of England’s autumnal campaign that saw them record victories over South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia at Twickenham.Belief, leadership and growing experienceThe mental part of the game plays such a significant role in the outcome of matches and it’s here, above all other areas, that England have developed the most over the past year and this has been particularly evident in their last four matches.The 10-year hoodoo at the hands of South Africa was driven into the turf, an inferior opposition in Fiji was not underestimated and a previously undiscovered level of resilience was found against Argentina. Against Australia, Eddie Jones’ men found that most valuable of commodities, the ability to beat good opposition when performing significantly below their best.Setting an example: Mike Brown is one of England’s on-pitch leadersPlayers such as Mike Brown, Ben Youngs, Owen Farrell and Chris Robshaw underlined their importance as leaders within this team during the series, whilst players previously considered to be quieter, follow-the-leader types, such as Jonathan Joseph and Courtney Lawes found their voice with their decision-making and control of the game.Making the leapA lot has been made of ‘world class’ players since Jones took over the England head coach position.The Australian had previously been critical about the lack of world class players at England’s disposal and more recently said that Jonny Wilkinson was the last player of that calibre to don the Red Rose.One of the biggest stories of Jones’ tenure has been the development of the players in his squad and more than once he has suggested that several of his charges are knocking on that world class door.Upping his game: Billy Vunipola had an epic year before injuryWell, two or three may have made that leap over the past four weeks.Farrell has led England with aplomb from his spot at inside centre, combining his ever-improving attacking gameplay with a defensive edge that has always been present. His decision-making as a defender has improved this year, as has his ability to effectively communicate and organise those around him.Likewise, Billy Vunipola has taken his game to another level over the last few months and even with Nathan Hughes‘ addition to the squad, it was noticeable just how keenly Vunipola’s absence was felt by England during their game with Australia.Leaders: Owen Farrell is one of a select few who could be considered world classBoth Farrell and Vunipola have made the leap and it would be harder, not to mention preposterous, to make a case for them not being considered among the very best in the world now, than it would to be put forward one which has them among that elite.Elsewhere, the superb series turned in by Joseph, Robshaw, Lawes and Youngs all put them in the mix for similar accolades.Defensive struggles persistLapses in defence against South Africa and Fiji cost England on the scoreboard – if not the match – and were not the clear steps forward in that area that England had been hoping for after their whitewash of Australia in the summer. In it together: The England squad congregate after their emphatic Autumn Series England went unbeaten during their Autumn Series and now have fourteen consecutive wins but there’s still room to improve, which bodes well for the future LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The trend was bucked against Argentina, when England turned in a thoroughly impressive defensive performance with 14 men, but they looked passive a week later when they took on the Wallabies.Australia caused England all sorts of problems in the first half of that match and were it not for their excellent try-line stands – a clear exception to their defensive issues – the match may have been put beyond them in the opening 30 minutes.Areas of improvement: England’s defensive positioning is still far from perfectJust as it is at Paul Gustard’s former club, Saracens, protecting your line is a remarkably well-drilled facet of this England side but where they don’t match up is with the consistency of their line speed, aggression and blitz.Against Argentina, an under-manned England side put pressure on the Pumas relentlessly, restricted the width the South Americans could play with and tied them into playing an arm wrestle in the centre of the pitch. Against Australia, they allowed the Wallabies to get wide, drifting out with the ball, rather than putting pressure on playmakers Bernard Foley and Reece Hodge.Building defensive structures and the trust within a squad that each player can deal with their own assignments is not an easy or overnight job and whilst there have been signs of development in this area, it’s still very much a work-in-progress for England.Scrummaging inconsistenciesEngland have ranged from below average to above average at the scrum over the last month – much as they have done for most of 2016 – and they are still some way off being the dominant unit they want to be.With Mako Vunipola usurping Joe Marler in the pecking order, England are not as set-piece-centric as they were in the Six Nations and combined with Dylan Hartley’s issues striking the ball, their scrum has looked underpowered. Dan Cole, despite Michael Cheika’s assertions and a yellow card against Argentina, has held up well at tighthead but has been unable to go after teams with the regularity he used to.Set-piece strength: The introduction of Joe Marler and Jamie George is an assetThe impact of Marler and Jamie George from the bench helped England into second half set-piece advantages against all four of their opponents and it has been an interesting contrast on the traditional idea that the more effective set-piece players start, then give way to more adept players in the loose in the second half.It’s difficult to overestimate the positive impact that Hartley has had as captain but without the quick strike on the ball at the scrum, he has been unable to lend his weight to the push and it is beginning to be reminiscent of Tom Youngs’ struggles at the Rugby World Cup.It’s something Neal Hatley and England’s front rowers will need to work on ahead of the Six Nations, especially with Ireland and Scotland making good progress in that area.Youth states its caseEngland’s goal is the 2019 Rugby World Cup, but as the All Blacks have shown, there is no reason why development should occur in cycles and that troughs in performance are avoidable.Debuts were given to Kyle Sinckler and Charlie Ewels during the series, two players who should, barring career-ending injuries, be around for the 2023 RWC, whilst other young players such as Henry Slade, Elliot Daly and Teimana Harrison have all added to their Test match pool of experience.Adding depth: Kyle Sinckler is one of many youngsters to make progress in recent monthsThat England are not only developing enviable depth, but depth that has the longevity to be around for much of the next decade, is something to be pleased about. New Zealand often turn to their next generation of stars when they have over 20 or 30 caps from the bench and then, unsurprisingly, they look to the manor born as Test starters.Jones, despite insisting he has only taken the reins to take England through to the 2019 RWC, might want to reconsider his position if he keeps this young team – and the ever-improving pool of young bucks – on their upwards trajectory.Ultimately, England’s 2016 autumn series must be seen as a significant success To record four wins from four games, tie the national record for consecutive wins, blood young players and do it all without the influential figures of Maro Itoje, James Haskell and Anthony Watson available, shows the growth England have undergone in the past 12 months.Sharing a cold one: England have a beer after an unbeaten yearThere is still plenty of work to be done by Jones, his coaching staff and all the players, but the future is certainly brighter for England after an impressive autumn.
George Gregan is viewed as a rugby god… Major teams: New South WalesCountry: AustraliaTest span: 1984-93Test caps: 63 (62 starts)Test points: 37 (9T) Nick Farr-Jones of Australia Rugby’s Greatest: George Gregan LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby’s Greatest: Nick Farr-JonesNick Farr-Jones was part of the Wallabies’ ‘Holy Trinity’, alongside his half-back partner Michael Lynagh and David Campese. Indeed, it was even said that the quick-thinking No 9 created 46 of Campo’s 64 Test tries.Brought up in Sydney, where he only took up the game at 13, Farr-Jones made his debut on the 1984 Grand Slam tour. Two years later he was instrumental to Australia’s series triumph in New Zealand; his performance into a gale in Wellington – with blindside snipes and shrewd link play with the forwards – was a joy to behold.Despite a fourth-placed finish at the 1987 World Cup, Farr-Jones had a fine tournament dictating his team’s tempo. He was soon chosen by coach Bob Dwyer to captain the Wallabies at 25.The following year Australia welcomed the Lions and in the first Test he gave another model demonstration of half-back play, Lions hooker Brian Moore saying in his book Beware of the Dog: “Farr-Jones’s distribution was swift, he knew when to take on the back row and especially when not to throw out rubbish. No one has ever played the perfect game, but they (Farr-Jones and Lynagh) made so few errors that it was pretty close to ideal.”Yet the Lions hit back to win the series and Farr-Jones had a notorious dust-up with opposite number Robert Jones after being provoked.

He took this passion to Haiti this summer on a collaborative mission trip to an orphanage with members from other Episcopal churches in the Diocese of West Texas.McCarty also lives with a passion for recording music and producing videos. His stage name is JFM3, for his given name, Joseph Franklin McCarty III. He said, “Recording music and video is an avenue where I can be real and transparent about what I’m passionate about.”With this passion, and along with friends Paul V. Hernandez and Robert Russell, McCarty created Hope Sound. Hope Sound is an organization, a branch off of Hernandez and Russell’s company MystikMuzikProductions, that is fueled by the talents of the three friends and meant to shed light on people living in poverty throughout the world. “Hope Sound is still in the process of being formed, but I believe it has a lot of potential to help a lot of people. It’s meant to give them hope,” said McCarty.Upon returning from Haiti this summer, the images of poverty resonated deeply with McCarty. He recalls driving through Port Au Prince and seeing the destructive conditions in which people live day to day. “Miles and miles of families live in tin houses smaller than most of our garages,” he said.The mission team traveled to Haiti Children’s Rescue Missions, an orphanage which houses approximately 75 children. Most of the children living at the orphanage lost their family members in the January 2010 earthquake that devastated the country. While there, the team hosted a Vacation Bible School, built a basketball hoop and a swing set, built bunk beds, and were simply present with the children. “Witnessing these children enjoying themselves with us amidst the devastation gave me hope,” said McCarty.McCarty returned home and carried the hope he had found into the next project for Hope Sound. “What I saw while in Haiti reminded me that, as Americans, we can all get too comfortable with our lifestyles and forget about our neighbors in need. But seeing the hope in the children’s eyes, I was also reminded that Jesus was resurrected and that death is dead,” he said. Longing to bring hope to the children and people he met in Haiti, McCarty wrote the song “A New Day,” and Hope Sound produced the video message.The “A New Day” video is available here.The mission of Hope Sound is to not only educate on poverty and bring our neighbors hope, but also to inspire support from those who feel called.

Participants listened to painful and courageous testimonies of survivors as well as engaging with government and U.N. officials to understand the unique contribution that churches can play in tackling human trafficking.It is estimated that between 25 and 37 million people world-wide are caught up in modern day slavery.The consultation was one of a series organized by the Anglican Alliance around the Anglican Communion to help share learning and equip provinces and their local churches to respond effectively to the issues. It was jointly convened with the Salvation Army and held under the auspices of the Council of Anglican Provinces in Africa (CAPA). It was hosted by Hope Africa, the relief and development arm of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.June Nderitu, Anglican Alliance regional facilitator for Africa, based at CAPA, said, “What strikes me most is the strength of partnership, because we realize that there is no church or organization which can deal with this issue on their own. We have explored how we can bring our skills and resources into this partnership so that together we can tackle this problem of modern day slavery and human trafficking.”The Archbishop of Canterbury has recognized the issue as a priority concern. In 2014 he, Pope Francis and other faith leaders signed a Declaration to End Modern Slavery. The Anglican Consultative Council has also repeatedly raised its concern, with voices from every part of the Communion.The Rev. Emmanuel Chikoya, from the Anglican Church in Zambia, said, “This meeting has galvanized me to think of ministry in a holistic manner. It is a wake-up call, especially with the silent issue of human trafficking.”Maged Yanny, director of the social care programmes for the Episcopal Diocese of Egypt, highlighted the growing and sophisticated crime of trafficking in human organs. “We need to make our people and the church aware of the challenge. I think the church can play a leading role in this area. The Anglican Alliance and CAPA can build an inclusive coalition to increase awareness of the seriousness of the problem of human trafficking and organ trafficking,” he said.Representatives from Stop the Traffik introduced their new mobile phone initiative, called Stop App, being promoted to gather information on the routes and hotspots of human trafficking, which is vital to combat global organized crime.The consultation concluded with a declaration, which lays out the vision of the participants, “calling on all our churches to include the issues of anti-human trafficking on their agendas in a significant way at local, national and global levels.”One outcome of the consultation was a strategy of 6 Ps+1:PreventionProtection of survivorsProsecution of perpetratorsPolicyPartnershipParticipation of local churches and communities.The Rev. Rachel Carnegie, co-executive director of the Anglican Alliance, said:“These are all covered by the seventh P of Prayer. The consultation committed to promoting a ‘Freedom Sunday’ across their churches, adapting resources to their local context.”She added, “It has been an inspirational week, hearing from churches across Africa on how they are tackling human trafficking. We will continue to work alongside CAPA and Hope Africa, helping to equip the provinces and churches in Africa to respond in their own context.” Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Pittsburgh, PA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Knoxville, TN Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Submit a Job Listing An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Equipping churches to respond to human trafficking Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Hopkinsville, KY Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Posted Jun 1, 2016 In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Smithfield, NC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Bath, NC Rector Tampa, FL Anglican Communion, This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Featured Jobs & Calls Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit a Press Release Rector Belleville, IL Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Washington, DC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Human Trafficking Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Youth Minister Lorton, VA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Albany, NY Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR
