Over and out: Ireland ponder an exit at the quarter-final stages for the sixth time By Whiff of CorditeAnd so it comes to pass – Ireland go out at a World Cup quarter final. Nothing to see here? Move on. Well maybe, but this time, more analysis is required, after all expectations were high – for the consecutive Six Nations champions, a semi-final was considered the par score, and a(nother) last eight exit feels crushing. So what did we learn?Ireland just don’t have the skills The most shocking facet of all, in the game between the best team in the Northern Hemisphere in 2014 and 2015 and the fourth best in the Southern Hemisphere from 2012 to 2014, was the sheer disparity in skill levels. Argentina seemed to be able to pass accurately and with distance off both sides, identifying space and running into it, executing mismatches with ease and looking threatening in a way none of the Northern Hemisphere teams do. It was a rude awakening for the men in green.Talent: Argetninian players like Martin Landajo showed wideranging skillsetIreland don’t have the depthJoe Schmidt has spent much of his reign building depth across the field by trusting backups in key games, Jordi Murphy against England in 2015 and Ian Madigan against France in 2014 spring to mind. However, the loss of Paul O’Connell, Peter O’Mahony, Sean O’Brien, Johnny Sexton and Jared Payne was too much – in on-pitch leadership terms as much as pure ability. Having the finishers starting meant we ran out of steam on the hour. Bruised prideFour more years: Ireland fans can’t hide their disappointment (Pic Inpho)Ireland went into this tournament as the best prepared Irish team ever sent to a tournament, the best supported outside of the hosts, with a settled and experienced side festooned with Lions and with a fantastic coach. “If not now, when?” we asked as we predicted a best RWC ever. And now the question we’ll need to address to ourselves with a bit more sobriety in the months and years ahead is “Where did it go wrong?” Missing in action: Paul O’Connell and Johnny Sexton were hugely missed against ArgentinaUse of the benchIn the first half, it felt like the player missed most by Ireland was Peter O’Mahony – Argentina owned the breakdown and Ireland were passive nearly everywhere. Of the players on the bench, Donnacha Ryan was the most like for like – a dose of Munster dog for the fight, and we were hoping to see him come in for Murphy, either into the row to unleash the Llama, or straight into blindside. But by the time he came in, the game was lost. Only Nathan White and Jack McGrath had the opportunity to make an impact from the bench – it was curiously timid from Schmidt.Grunt: Ireland could have done with Donnacha Ryan’s ‘dog’ earlier than the 71st minuteDevaluation of the French performanceAt the time, the performance in beating France by 15 points was hailed as one of Ireland’s best ever. The way France lost on Saturday night should really have set off alarm bells – they weren’t noticeably worse than against Ireland, but got exposed far more often and far more clinically. In retrospect, this was because France and Ireland are far below the level of New Zealand and Argentina – beating France in 2015, is nothing like beating the perpetual semi-finalists of previous World Cups.

Flying Falcon: Adam Radwan gives Ospreys the slip during last year’s tournament in Coventry (Getty)“The major change will be the overnight recovery to play again the next day, rather than recovering to train. Our lads aren’t used to that, but people like Cameron have been really useful because his England 7s experience has helped to educate a lot of the lads about what is required.”Saracens, too, are brimming with optimism. They’re led by Tom Whiteley, a nominee for last season’s Anglo-Welsh Cup Breakthrough Player of the Year and about to play in his fifth Premiership 7s.“I’m confident for sure. This is the most confident I’ve been so we will see,” said the 22-year-old. “I just want to see the lads go out there and enjoy it, there’s no pressure on our shoulders.”The Sarries squad includes two players, Jermaine Olason and Josh Christie, from the Seventy7s side that won last year’s 24/Sevens competition – evidence that there are many different pathways available towards the top of the game.Sale’s standout name is arguably Paolo Odogwu, who last year broke the record for most tries in a round (eight), while London Irish are led by teenage scrum-half Rory Brand, one of four ex-Wellington College pupils in their line-up.Try merchant: Paolo Odogwu with a Player Of The Round award.

Rev. Mariann Budde, bishop of Washington, raises her hand in prayer outside St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., on June 14. Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNS[Religion News Service – Washington, D.C.] — A series of religious demonstrations in Washington, D.C., over the weekend mixed prayerful calls for racial equality with frustration with law enforcement, lawmakers and the Trump administration.Early Sunday (June 14), thousands of churchgoers and clergy, most of them African American, assembled at the National Museum of African American History and Culture to march to the newly christened Black Lives Matter Plaza — previously known as 16th Street Northwest at it passes the White House.Once there, participants organized by the NAACP and Alfred Street Baptist Church, a prominent black church in Alexandria, Virginia, prayed and kneeled along the street, which is currently painted with the words “Black Lives Matter.”“We’re here because of what happened with Ahmaud, Breonna, with George, (and) Rayshard,” the Rev. Howard-John Wesley, pastor of Alfred Street Baptist, told the crowd, listing the names of African Americans who have been killed in encounters with the police or alleged vigilantes. “We know that, sadly, that’s what we’ve been living with for the entirety of our time in this nation. … It’s important that this nation know that we have not forgotten, that we do not have racial amnesia.”The Rev. William Barber, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign, addresses a crowd outside St. John’s Episcopal Church on June 14. Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNSJust before noon, as the demonstration wound down, the Rev. William Barber, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign and pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, delivered the sermon at Washington National Cathedral’s Sunday Eucharist service.In a homily titled “America, Accepting Death Is Not an Option Anymore!”, Barber traced the history of hardship shared by people of color and impoverished people in the United States. Noting the evils of slavery as well as times when immigrants to the United States were blamed for bringing disease, Barber drew connections between Scripture, the ongoing pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus and historic disparities that impact people of color.“If we’re going to turn from all this death, we need real truth-telling,” Barber said. “But not only that: when a nation is facing unnecessary and unnatural death, there must be a response of the people. There must be a refusal to accept easy answers and a refusal to just go along to get along.”Referring to the biblical prophet, Barber said, “So Amos says, God says: We need real lamenting. … In the text, God says, I need a remnant that will cry in the street and refuse to be comforted.”He later added: “We need real reconstructing of society rooted in the deep moral values of our faith and of the Constitution.”A few hours later, Barber appeared in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church, across Lafayette Square from the White House, to deliver a similar message alongside Sikh, Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders who had gathered with clergy of other traditions to protest racism, police brutality and Trump.Barber highlighted the recent killing of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis who begged for breath as a police officer kneeled on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.“Every time the church and religious people have seen these deaths and buried folk and sent them to heaven, but did not fight for change here — that keeps this stuff alive,” Barber said.The pastor argued that the killing of African Americans by police is only one form of racism, pointing to disparities in health care access, wages and the treatment of indigenous people.He argued that the growing protest movement is “not just against one form of racism,” but that “what George Floyd spoke is shorthand for all our pain: I can’t breathe.”He criticized the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic as “negligent,” noting that the poor and people of color are disproportionately represented among its victims — including George Floyd.“If we had had cameras in hospitals, how many times would we have heard ‘I can’t breathe’?”Barber also lauded activists who have been marching for weeks, citing in particular those who are not motivated by faith.“Sometimes the people in the street have been more prophetic than the religious folk! We must repent of that!”Among the faith leaders at the gathering was Bishop Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, who fiercely criticized Trump after demonstrators — including clergy — were cleared from Lafayette Square by law enforcement on June 1, shortly before the president posed for cameras in front of St. John’s while holding a Bible aloft.St. John’s has become the epicenter of protests in Washington ever since, and Budde, who prayed at the gathering, said religious leaders have a role to play.“The church has left the building,” she told RNS. “We’re not just in the building. We never were, but now we’re like: this is God’s sanctuary, and let’s be here.”Bishop LaTrelle Easterling, who heads the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church, fired up the crowd by arguing that privileged Americans have “manipulated” sacred texts to create a “savior who looks more like a Midwestern American than a Middle Eastern Jew.”She said that the government “stands under God’s judgment” and called on her fellow Methodists to decry racism and injustice.“The United Methodist Church rejects uses of threats, unlawful detentions, extrajudicial killings and other forms of coercion to try to silence political opponents and those objecting to unlawful and immoral policies and practices,” she said. “The United Methodist Church encourages its members to speak out boldly on social issues from a gospel perspective.”Imam Talib M. Shareef, president of the Nation’s Mosque, Masjid Muhammad, in Washington, said people of faith should lend a hand by helping demonstrators channel frustration into a positive force for good.“The role of people in faith ought to help us keep our humanity — we can become beasts, too, because of anger,” he said. “If we are consumed by the anger, (then) we will lose our humanity.”The faith leaders at all three demonstrations appealed to hope, arguing that there remains reason for optimism.“There has always been a remnant of people in this country who have refused to hate and chose to love,” Barber said.This article was originally published by Religion News Service.
