Wasps, who welcome back Juan de Jongh, have a very slim chance of topping the pool. Dai Young’s side would need a bonus-point win over Ulster, denying their rivals any game points, as well as La Rochelle failing to collect any points at home to Harlequins, who are without Mike Brown and Chris Robshaw. A bonus point win for Ulster sees them winners but anything else would allow La Rochelle to go through top with a bonus point win.
England have been dealt a hammer blow before the defence of their Six Nations title after it was confirmed that Billy Vunipola has suffered a fractured forearm in yet another injury setback for the No 8. Vunipola will see a specialist this week to determine a time frame for his return but he is almost certainly out of England’s Six Nations opener on 4 February in Italy and his participation at any stage of the tournament is now in serious doubt.
The Toulon captain, Mathieu Bastareaud, could face a lengthy suspension after television footage appeared to show him uttering a homophobic slur at an opponent during his side’s Champions Cup win over Benetton. In the final minute of Toulon’s 36-0 win on Sunday Bastareaud appeared to call Sebastian Negri a “fucking faggot”. The relevant World Rugby regulation states that “verbal abuse includes, but is not limited to abuse based on: religion, colour, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation”.
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".
