Captain Robbie Farah is set to start at halfback for Lebanon in their opening World Cup match against France after leading the Cedars to a 32-16 defeat of Niue at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday night. With Parramatta playmaker Mitchell Moses and prop Tim Mannah rested for the warm-up match, Farah partnered South Sydney club mate Adam Doueihi in the halves, while recently re-signed Canterbury star shared the dummy half duties with Auburn Warriors hooker Jamie Clark.
That was the headline in The Times after Leeds stunned Castleford to win the Super League grand final. He has also cost himself – and possibly England’s World Cup hopes – after being banned on the eve of the grand final for returning a positive test to cocaine. It is the second time the talented fullback, who played for England in May’s Test against Samoa at Campbelltown, has been suspended from a World Cup for misconduct after being axed by Steve McNamara in 2013 for “acting unprofessionally”.
“It is obviously great for Tonga and I think it is great for the game. It is building the game internationally and I think it will make the World Cup more competitive.”Under new international eligibility rules introduced this year, players who qualify for more than one country are able to represent a tier two nation if they are not playing for one of the big three of Australia, England and New Zealand.
Congratulations to @CRLA_Ravens on their history making 22-8 win over @PNGOrchids at the Rugby League Women's World Cup tonight. For most of the Canada players it was just their third game of rugby league and they don't yet have a team song.
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".
