The Rugby League World Cup has arrived at the knockout stage with a historic clash between Tonga and Lebanon, New Zealand must bounce back against Fiji, and England are in need of a tune-up ahead of the semi-finals. Here's how it stands to unfold over the weekend. Setting the scene Say what you like about the Rugby League World Cup but it's not often you find yourself previewing a clash between these two particular nations.
It was certainly short, but not particularly sweet. In the end, Matt Renshaw walked away unscathed and largely unbeaten from a daunting hour-long net session that reignited his claims for selection in the first Ashes Test next week. At the start of the week, with selector Mark Waugh all but guaranteeing him a start despite meagre returns in the Sheffield Shield rounds, Renshaw looked certain be be striding out next to David Warner at the Gabba against England.
Test spinner Nathan Lyon says Matt Renshaw has the support of influential members of the Australian inner sanctum and has backed the opener to snap out of his form slump if given the green light to face England at the Gabba. The squad for next week's first Test will be announced in Brisbane on Friday and the opener, wicketkeeper and No.6 are the trio of spots continuing to stir debate.
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".
