If you were in Springbok coach Allister Coetzee's shoes, would you be happy with Rassie Erasmus' appointment as SA Rugby's new Director of Rugby?Possibly not, especially after rumours -- before South Africa's Test series against France -- that Bok legend Erasmus was set to replace Coetzee as head coach if the Boks failed to beat the French, after a dreadful 2016 for the national side.As it happened, the Boks convincingly won the series 3-0, whitewashing the French with some of their best...
IF Jomo Cosmos stay in the Premiership, it will not be because of their gameplan, skill or even determination, it will be solely because of goalkeeper and captain Avril Phali's ability to save a football from close range. At Athlone Stadium last night, Phali was at his irritating best (for his opponents), but even he couldn't deny Ajax Cape Town maximum points as the home team scored a well-deserved 1-0 victory over their bottom-of-the-log visitors.
KweséESPN rugby editor John Goliath looks at five issues that came out of Allister Coetzee's Springbok squad for the Test series against France in June.Duane Vermeulen to the side of the scrum? With Warren Whiteley taking up the Springbok captaincy, it is safe to assume that Duane Vermeulen will play as a flank against the French. The Toulon bruiser has played exclusively at No 8 for the Boks since making his debut in 2012, but it looks like Coetzee wants to use his physicality at blindside flank.
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".
