The best men's player in this season's national provincial rugby competition will now pick up the Duane Monkley medal. The recipient will be hoping his fingers are in better shape to grab it than Monkley's. New Zealand Rugby announced on Wednesday that the player of the year in the Mitre 10 Cup will receive the medal named in honour of the Waikato great, while the star of the Farah Palmer Cup will claim the Fiao'o Fa'amausili Medal.
Waikato will start their national provincial rugby campaign on Saturday without fringe All Blacks Damian McKenzie and Tawera Kerr-Barlow. That duo will be part of the New Zealand squad in Sydney this week preparing for the Rugby Championship opener against the Wallabies on Saturday - the same day the Mooloo men meet Taranaki in their first 2017 Mitre 10 Cup game in New Plymouth.
All 1.88m of Robbie Manson always thought that he was "too small" to be a world-class single sculler. With two wins at World Cup events in Europe in recent months - including a new world's best time - the Kiwi rower has quickly put that idea to rest. Men's single sculling is a Lands of the Giants environment - and while Manson has a 1.97m arm-span, he admits "I don't have the longest legs either".
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".
