Mayer Made 8 Changes for Victory

Rugby Union is definitely a great competition that is worth to watch. Unfortunately, it really seems that South Africa National team cannot provide interesting effort against several teams in the last matches. They really have lost from small team, and it is definitely a devastating fact for all people involved in this team. It is definitely a complicated matter inside of the team because of lose. That is why, it is important to know that the team really needs absolute encouragement for waking up the team from deep sleep. Heyneke Meyer is the coach of the team, and he is responsible for the team progress.

The first point that is concerned by this experienced coach is encouraging all of the players. It is definitely not an easy task, yet it should be successful. Indeed, the team is really under pressure, and the possibility is that the team may not be able to fight with all of their might in the following matches. It is even possible to have internal fight because each team member is emotionally attacked by condition. It is imaginable that losing many matches will lead to disturbance and separation within a team if no solidity or unity within the team. This is definitely a tedious and difficult task for the coach, but he tries the best to accommodate that.

In addition to merely encouragement, Meyer tries to shift team composition based on experience against several former battles. It is a worthy experience that he can compose the team finely without too much failures again. There are two causes why the compositions will be implemented. First of all, it is because there are a few players are injuries. They are not allowed to join more competition because it only makes them suffer more. Therefore, it is important for the coach to decide that the members will not be deployed just like previous composition. Secondly, it is because there are several players who do not develop because they are excellent in other position. Therefore, forcefully to shift position will be beneficial, and it is what wants to be implemented for the next team.

There are several changes that should be noted. Starting from the front lines, Willem Albert’s will replace Marcel Coetzee because he is severely injured. It is practically impossible to follow match in near future, and replacing him is absolutely great decision. Trevor Nyakane, Adriaan Strauss and Marcel van der Merwe will be in the front, and it is truly different from previous strategy. Going to the middle, Jean de Villiers is replaced by Jesse Kriel switch back to outside center. It is because Villiers is also injured. This is basically the 5 changes implemented to the team. The other three changes will be Zane Kirchner, Pat Lambie, and Lwazi Mvovo. Kirchner is full-back, Mvovo is the wing, and Lambie will be half-fly. All of those new compositions come from previous matches, and it should be fulfilling all roles for achieving victory in next battle. This set-up can be seen in future match.

Simple Verse is finally the Winner

It is rare to have a controversial result in racing. It is because the winner is obviously the one who comes in the first line, and it is also very rare to find racers coming into finish line in the same time. However, the case of Simple Verse is basically not related at all about reaching the finish line. It is all about dispute because of damage in the course of race. Simple Verse is a filly which is still young and energetic. She unfortunately was regarded as interfering horse in the race, and that is why she was considered as lost in the race.

Basically it is the first reason why Simple Verse case is controversial. There is another reason why this beautiful hose is considered as awful horse for race. It is because it has been supplemented costing up to more than $50,000. This is supposed to be like a cheat for winning the game. That is why this horse was demoted to the second position in Doncaster Classic. Since she became runner-up, Bondi Beach came up as winner. This horse came in second position and was so close to win. The exact gap is merely a head-length, and it is definitely a tight battle. Just for additional information, the comparison of odds between Bondi Beach and Simple Verse is quite different. It is 8 – 1 and 2- 1 respectively. It basically makes sense why the disputes claimed by inquires related to Simple Verse action and treatment were considered deeply.

Knowing the fact that Simple Verse should have won the game, Ralph Becket as trainer did not accept that fact. Therefore, he filed an appeal for the sake of winning point for several points. First of all, the rule does state clearly about the race itself; especially things related to what rider can do. Secondly, there is also additional equipment which is known as suspension within for the horse. It is basically a minor thing, but it is quite problematic in this case. After appeal process, finally it is decided that Simple Verse won the Doncaster Classic. The other horses – Bondi Beach – should be demoted once again because the decision was changed.

Even though considered as winner, the rider is banned for three days from racing. It is because of his careless ride that interfered other racers – especially in last match. However, it was weak case because there was a proof that Bondi Beach’s rider has been leaning upon Simple Verse in the race. It is a sad thing to happen for the rider, yet it cannot be altered or changed. It is needed for deterrence effect for other racer to avoid such condition. The team was so happy with the decision, and it was basically an exact thing to happen. Actually the appeal seemed to be negative since panel was not persuaded. However, the chairman could explain that the finishing position of Simple Verse was not improved by any means, and it was completely based on the horse itself.
