Welsh International loosehead prop John Yapp has joined London Irish ahead of the upcoming season on loan from Edinburgh. At 19 stone and 6’ 2”, the proven set piece operator has 21 caps for Wales and was part of the 2005 Grand Slam squad. He also made over 100 appearances for Cardiff Blues before signing for the Scottish side where he made 21 appearances last season. He said: “I’m thrilled to be joining London Irish this season.
Rhys Carre already has the size and power to play senior rugby but he is fully aware his technique has to improve is he is to fulfil his childhood dream of one day wearing the Cardiff Blues jersey. Standing at 6ft3in and a whopping 20st 6lb (130kg), the 19-year-old breezed through age-grade rugby and it was no surprise to see the Blues hand him a two-year academy contract last season.
What do you make of you first two games? For whatever reason we didn’t turn up against Bedford in the first game but we were much better last week against Ealing. What went well last week? We weren’t as predictable in attack compare to the Blues game but we also had a lot more go forward in attack. That allowed us to play in the right areas of the field. It doesn’t get any easier, does it?
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".
