France broke their duck in this year’s Six Nations, winning a mediocre affair against bottom-placed Italy in Marseille. It ended an eight-match winless run for the French, whose new head coach Jacques Brunel – a former boss of Italy – recorded his first win with the side following defeats to Ireland and Scotland. Tries by Paul Gabrillagues, Hugo Bonneval and Mathieu Bastareaud did the damage, with Maxime Machenaud kicking five penalties in an error-strewn and stop-start spectacle.
French rugby has been wanting a shake-up and this game has it in spades: the first championship match they’ve staged outside Paris, a seldom-seen Friday-night billing, and 11 new faces in the match-day squad. Well, no point doing things by half. France and Italy meet at the 67,000-capacity Stade Velodrome in Marseille. Les Bleus have played Tests there sporadically – this will be their 12th visit this century – and Italy captain Sergio Parisse turned out there during the 2007 World Cup.
What is a TMO in rugby? It stands for Television Match Official and it’s someone who watches the action on TV screens, usually in a truck outside the ground. Using a system called Hawk-Eye, they can see multiple camera angles of an incident and pass on information to the match referee – via an earpiece – to help him make accurate decisions. Can the TMO intervene on any matter they like? No, the TMO in rugby is basically restricted to two crucial areas:1.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
