Tim Sampson turned down the assistant’s role with the Australian under-20 World Cup side to raise Western Force from the ashes of Rugby Australia’s funeral pyre. The new Force coach admits it was a tough decision but in his first interview since landing the job he said: “I am really excited now it is all sorted and the most exciting part is what lies ahead.”Sampson is promising to build on the exciting brand of rugby played by the Force in its final year of Super Rugby.
The new Western Force can create an entertainment event from the grassroots up when the side takes the field for the first time later this year, says new commercial boss Brad Paatsch. “We have a blank canvas where we can take the good things from all over the world, apply them and do them bigger and better. We have an opportunity to establish something that is new and innovative from the grassroots up,” Paatsch said.
Liverpool U19s will have to beat English and Spanish opposition if they are to continue their journey in the UEFA Youth league all the way to the final. Steven Gerrard's side beat Manchester United 2-0 at Prenton Park yesterday in their last 16 tie courtesy of goals in either half from Ben Woodburn and Rafa Camacho. That sets up a quarter final against Manchester City with the random draw making City the home team for a game which will be played on March 13 or 14.
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".
