FORMER South Africa batsman Jacques Rudolph will retire at the end of the season and has stepped down as Glamorgan's captain in the County Championship with immediate effect. The 36-year-old will be replaced as skipper in red-ball cricket by Australian seamer Michael Hogan for the rest of the campaign while continuing to call the shots in the NatWest T20 Blast. Rudolph, who previously had spells with Yorkshire and Surrey, joined Glamorgan in 2014 and took the reins in 2016.
TALISMAN flanker Ronny Kynes has been chosen as the successor to the influential Damien Hudd as captain at Ebbw Vale. The 30-year-old openside was to the fore of the Steelmen's rise from the second tier to becoming Principality Premiership champions in 2016. Kynes established himself as one of Hudd's leading right-hand men at Eugene Cross Park and will now take over from the lock, who has returned to his hometown club Brynmawr.
‘ICEMAN’ Gerwyn Price will aim to keep his cool when he fulfils a lifetime ambition by going up against the greatest darts player of all time on Sunday evening. The 32-year-old from Markham is hoping to play the role of party pooper when he takes on Phil Taylor in the first round of the World Matchplay in Blackpool. ‘The Power’ has won the tournament 15 times since his first success in 1995 but this is his final trip to the Winter Gardens before hanging up his 26g Targets.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
