It’s a very social event with so much happening and some great opportunities for the best dressed fans to be invited onto the international pitch and compete for some fantastic prizes and have a good time.“The game of rugby sevens, in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and recently recognised with inclusion in the 2016 Olympic Games, delivers high performance drama, excitement and unpredictability, so the marriage of the action on the pitch and fun elements off it make for a superb day out for families, party goers and committed rugby fans alike.”Tickets for this fast and furious festival of rugby are on sale now and are priced at just £5 for under-18s, £10 for students and senior citizens and £20 for adults (£10 if you buy an adult ticket for Scotland’s EMC Tests against Ireland and Italy in August – also just £10!) – that’s two days of pulsating rugby for just £20!All sevens tickets are ANY DAY tickets – valid for one day of your choice, either Saturday 28 May or Sunday 29 May.Last season’s Edinburgh Sevens Plate winners Scotland have been handed a tough assignment in Pool D and face Pacific Islanders and renowned sevens specialists Samoa and Fiji, as well as Series regulars USA on day one, with their performances on the day determining their opponents in the knockout rounds the next day (Sunday).Last season the Scots performed heroics on home soil, beating Fiji, Wales and the USA before trumping both South Africa and Argentina on day two to win the silver platter.Scotland 7s head coach, and former Scotland internationalist, Graham Shiel, said: “The physicality and skill brought by the current Series champions Samoa, and Fiji, world famous for their sevens talents, is well-documented so these matches are a chance for us to put a marker down and perform for Scotland with the nation’s backing at Murrayfield.“The crowd’s a huge factor at the Edinburgh Sevens. It’s a real party occasion. The players are very professional and fully focused on their performance but it’s important to enjoy the environment, especially at Murrayfield in front of a vocal home crowd wiling you on.”More than 1100 participants have already signed up to play in the event’s youth festival on the back pitches which means that the whole stadium grounds, inside and out, will be taken over by the fun atmosphere of international sevens.With six tournaments played so far New Zealand currently top the standings, 13 points clear of England in second place. Samoa are third, South Africa fourth and Fiji fifth.As a result of their position and current form, back-to-back winners in Hong Kong and Australia, New Zealand top the seeds in Edinburgh and head Pool A, where they face Argentina and European duo, Russia and France.

England take the Grand Slam after beating France in Paris

first_imgMonday Mar 21, 2016 England take the Grand Slam after beating France in Paris England claimed that elusive Grand Slam with a 31-21 victory over France in Paris on Saturday night, giving coach Eddie Jones the perfect start to his career with the new Six Nations champions. Catch up on a full highlights wrap below.The 2015 Rugby World Cup hosts were famously knocked out at the group stages, but have turned things around since Jones has come on board, winning five straight matches.This was their first Grand Slam since 2003, when they won the World Cup in Australia, when Jones was actually coach of losing finalists, the Wallabies.It’s been an incredible few months for him, coming off an excellent RWC campaign with Japan, to turning his back on the Stormers to take up this role, to now winning the Championship unbeaten.“I am very proud of the boys,” Jones said post match. “We weren’t at our best today, but we battled through and really deserved the victory. It is a great achievement by the team.“I always had confidence in the team. I thought in the first half we sat back a little bit, and were probably more worried about the result than playing, and the second half we were much more positive in the way we played.“The great thing is that the best is still ahead of us. We are only going to get better.”France stayed in the game throughout as the excellent boot of Maxime Machenaud slotted seven penalties, but tries from Danny Care, Dan Cole and Anthony Watson, as well as 16 points from the boot of Owen Farrell, proved the difference on the night.Wales vs Italy Highlights » Ireland vs Scotland Highlights » Highlights wrap in: French | ItalianFrenchItalianADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

If visitation rights only are granted for limited hours, it may not be sufficient for the child to have comfortable time with the father or mother, whoever may be the case,” remarked the Telangana High Court recently. The Court further stated that “overnight custody” must be encouraged wherever possible. It observed, “mere meeting and spending time with the parent for couple of hours in court premises, hotel, theatre, Mall, park etc., under the supervision of other parent or relative will not serve any purpose of visitation as the child will be under psychological pressure and will not be comfortable.” The remarks were made by a Bench of Justice T. Amarnath Goud, in a contempt case, filed against violation of a custody order passed by the Family Court. In this case, the petitioner-husband and respondent-wife had a child named Agastya. The two were no longer in marital relationship and were contesting the custody of their child. Vide order dated December 13, 2019, the Family Court had ordered: “Custody of the child shall be with the father and mother as follows: (i) Sunday evening 4.00 PM onwards till Friday morning, the father will have the custody of the child, (ii) The mother will pick up the child from the school on Friday and will hand over the custody of the child to the father post lunch on Sunday at 4.00 PM. This arrangement shall be for first three weeks in every month and for the remaining weeks, father shall have the custody of the child in order to spend time with the child in the last week ends. (iii) From January, 2020 onwards, in all vacations, child custody shall be shared equally by both parents; (iv) If mutually agreed, both the parties are at liberty to take the child together to any place of his choice during vacation or on any other day. This arrangement is made in view of the child being away from the father for almost a year and for the past two years, he was given custody for only 43 days. This arrangement is made till the end of summer vacation. Thereafter, the parents are at liberty to take appropriate steps before the Family Court in the event of any modification of having the custody of the child.” The present petition was filed by the father, before the Telangana High Court, claiming that the respondent had violated clause (iii) of the abovementioned order. He also claimed that the respondent had been taking inappropriate photographs of their child by taking the child to the Nilofer Hospital at midnight and getting the child’s private parts tested for COVID-19 and in doing so, had grossly violated COVID-19 norms. The plea further stated that the respondent had filed complaints before different police stations alleging that the petitioner had been committing immoral acts against the child, which amounts to serious offences under the law. But, after the police had conducted their investigation, these complaints turned out to be false. Advocate Nagesh Reddy, counsel for the petitioner, further stated in the plea that the respondent has given the child, who is 6 years old, a mobile phone and is teaching him to send her certain messages in secret, with an intention to implicate the petitioner and his family. The child had done this innocently, without knowing the consequences of his action. In response to these claims made by the petitioner, the respondent denied that she had taken these steps and refused to return the child into the custody of the petitioner in his own interest as she was concerned that the petitioner might commit homosexual acts upon him. The respondent, while defending her actions, also stated that she took the child to the hospital and also made audio and video recordings and his private parts were photographed only in the interest of the child. The Court in this case, made certain observations. They firstly examined the child’s movements and concluded that the child is not fearful of the petitioner. The respondent had told the Court that the reason why she had not allowed the child back into the petitioner’s custody was because she thought that the petitioner’s careless actions would result in the child contracting COVID-19. But, in this context, the Court opined, “It is further strange to accept the behaviour of the mother that on one hand she takes shelter of Corona virus for not sending the child to his father but on the other hand she took the child to police stations, hospital for examining his private parts and made serious allegations against the father that he has committed sexual assault upon the child.” They further stated, “It is surprising to believe the version of the mother that on one hand she says that she is having more concern towards the welfare of the child and trying to keep away the child from the father and on the other hand and she is willing to continue the sharing of the child custody. Both pleas are contradictory to each other and her stand is inconsistent.” The Court opined, “A parent cannot be a guest in the life of their child. If visitation rights only are granted for limited hours, it may not be sufficient for the child to have comfortable time with the father or mother, whoever may be the case. The wider the gap, the bonds get broken quicker and the child is left confused and ends up believing this.” The Court found the respondent guilty of contempt. However, since she had expressed her unconditional apology and prayed for pardon, the Court took a lenient stand against her. The Court also issued the following directions to the respondent and the petitioner about the shared custody of their child: (i) To win over each other, the parents shall not use the child as a pawn against each other. (ii) The parents should not poison the mind of the child. The child shall not be given mobile phone. He can use the mobile phone only under parental guidance. (iii) Both mother and father shall have the custody of the child during vacation equally. During vacations if the mother and the child intend to go on domestic or international trip, the father shall make their travel and stay arrangements and bear with all such expenses. (iv) The parties are strictly prohibited from taking obscene photos or videos of the child as well as audio recordings. All the existing photos, CDs and videos should be destroyed and they shall not be used hereafter. Click Here To Download Order Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more
