The sun is shining on Llandarcy, at Ospreys’ headquarters between Swansea and Neath, and there is a glint in the brown eyes of Wales’s brightest rugby prospect. Does Sam Davies need to be told he made a couple of costly errors in last week’s loss away to Glasgow? Happy to talkNo, he’s quite happy to talk me through them – an interception and a pass thrown on the ground – but he is much more interested in what he might do against Munster at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.
A pair of early tries by England scrum-half Ben Youngs paved the way for Leicester’s first victory of the season, as Gloucester continued a winless run at Welford Road that stretches back 10 years. Leicester had never lost their first three Premiership matches of the season and having been beaten at home by Bath and away to Northampton in the opening fortnight, while conceding 38 first-half points in those two matches, they quickly showed their raging intent to reverse those worrying patterns.
“Pie in the sky,” is how Amy Turner describes the prospect of a fully-professional women’s club rugby union scene in England any time soon, which seems an odd thing to say in the media room at Twickenham Stadium just as we are reporting a revamped domestic league to a nation hopefully still agog at the impact made by the World Cup.
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".
