James Haskell, the irrepressible Wasps stalwart, made his international debut back in 2007 and is now England’s third most-capped back-row behind Lawrence Dallaglio (85 Tests) and Joe Worsley (78). Here he takes time out for an offbeat chat with Rugby World …Do you have any phobias? I’m not scared of much. In Australia last year I held a giant tarantula, which I could cope with, and in the house if I saw a dead bird or a mouse, I’d be able to deal with it.
The genteel surroundings of the Lensbury Club on the bank of the River Thames was the location for a training session with a difference. It was hosted by four All Blacks; World Cup winner Beauden Barrett, blindside Vaea Fifita, 39-cap scrum half TJ Perenara and Crusaders utility back David Havili, the task was simple, to improve the skills of a group of journalists whose best years were largely behind them.
This Sunday, October 29, at the usual time of 11am at Trinity Church, there will be a united service in which the congregations of Trinity and the United Church of Bute will join together to mark the 500th anniversary of the reformation. A community choir, made up of the two congregations’ choirs and a number of friends, will offer a programme of music which will deeply enrich this celebration.
@JamesFitz501@WorldRugby Not sure what the cricket scene is like out there but I've played a bit of rugby in Montreal, you'll be grand! Congratulations, you've been a pleasure to deal with over the years...
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".
