Injuries and international calls have forced Cardiff Blues to make six changes for Sunday’s Guinness PRO14 clash with Zebre in Parma - all up front. They field an entirely new front-row of Rhys Gill, Kirby Myhill and Anton Peikrishvili, while Olly Robinson and Josh Turnbull step into the back row. And with Seb Davies a travelling reserve for Wales’ trip to Dublin, Damian Welch is drafted on board at lock as the Blues look to build on impressive wins over the Cheetahs and Munster.
So, what connects Aldershot, York, King’s Lynn, Hunterville and Haverfordwest? The answer? Well, they are all birthplaces of players on duty for Wales against Ireland at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium tomorrow. Yet while some of the locations are far flung, most of the starting XV actually entered the world far closer to home. In fact, 11 of the 15 were born in west Wales.
Teenager Corey Baldwin makes his first league start for the depleted Scarlets tomorrow as they face up to the double whammy loss of Johnny McNicholl and Tom Prydie. Back three duo McNicholl (shoulder) and Prydie (ankle) will both miss the rest of the season having been injured in last weekend’s defeat to Leinster. With Leigh Halfpenny, Steff Evans and the versatile Rhys Patchell all away on Wales duty, the Scarlets are really down on numbers in the back three department.
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".
