Saracens beat Leinster to be crowned European champions

first_img Saracens beat Leinster to be crowned European champions The adage goes that defence wins championships and so it proved in the European Champions Cup final at St James’ Park.The two outstanding teams in Europe went head-to-head at the home of Newcastle United and it was Saracens who came out on top, beating Leinster 20-10. The key to the victory? Their famous defence.The Irish province simply couldn’t find a way through. They had plenty of possession, particularly in the first half, but couldn’t make the necessary territory gains.In fact, Saracens’ defensive line moved at such speed that they often drove Leinster back across the gain-line and the Irish province couldn’t make yards or build momentum.Leading the defence: Garry Ringrose is closed down by Brad Barritt (Getty Images)The last five minutes were a case in point as Leinster struggled to escape their own 22 when they needed two scores to have a chance of winning. Brad Barritt in midfield led that defensive shift and was a deserving Man of the Match.The one time Leinster did break that Saracens defence came after half an hour. Rob Kearney caused those defenders to flounder – a rare occurrence – when he cut a decent angle inside in the 28th minute before being brought down just a couple of metres out.Acute angle: Rob Kearney cuts inside the Saracens defence (Getty Images)A few phases later it looked like Leinster may finally have scored and the TMO was called upon. The ball was held up but with Maro Itoje then sent to the sin-bin for two offside offences and two new props on the field for Saracens due to injuries, Leinster opted for a scrum from the resulting penalty and Tadhg Furlong squeezed over after a Jack Conan burst. Then came the converted try once the clock had ticked past 40 that drew the scores level at 10-10. Saracens used a penalty to set up a lineout in Leinster’s 22 and after using their big carriers to take play close to the line, drawing in numerous defenders, Farrell flicked on a pass to Sean Maitland on the wing for an easy run-in.Line time: Sean Maitland touches down for Saracens’ first try (Getty Images)It was nip-tuck for the first half of the second period before Jackson Wray burst into open space and Saracens worked their way close to the Leinster line. Similar to the first half, the TMO was called in, there was no clear grounding and Scott Fardy was sent to the sin-bin. Sarries opted for the posts to secure a narrow lead.In reach: Billy Vunipola stretches out to score for Saracens (Getty Images)They capitalised on their numerical advantage a few minutes later too. Getting close to the line again and putting pressure on Leinster from a series of five-metre scrums before Billy Vunipola surged from the back then stretched over to touch the ball down under the posts.At 20-10, it was advantage Saracens – and they held on for victory.To add a cherry to the icing on the Saracens cake, full-back Alex Goode was then named European Player of the Year.Leinster – Try: Furlong. Con: Sexton. Pen: Sexton. English side lift European Champions Cup trophy for a third time Saracens’ powerful defence helped to deliver their first points late in the second half. Two huge tackles led to a penalty – first Alex Lozowski on Jack Conan and then George Kruis on Johnny Sexton – and Owen Farrell put the ball through the posts.

Classical palatial buildings and old industrial spaces, such as the medieval dockyards, both share (at least) three conditions. First of all, the space is continuous and flows from room to room. Secondly, the structural vanes are equivalent, regular and adaptable. And finally, the volume of the series of spaces is not only related to the room size, but also to the holistic interpretation of the building. Of course, other obvious features differentiate these two typologies.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThis house ambiguously inherits these three conditions. Its structure is clearly organised in four long continuous vanes. The impair number of structural lines modernly flirts with the classical paradigm of the symmetrical and classic venetian palatial structures of three vanes and four column lines. Somehow, it occupies a space in between the classical structural rhythms and the serial workshop structures.Save this picture!Ground floor plan + Longitudinal sectionInside, the initially isotropic and aligned structure is organised by three courtyards. The resulting subspaces are occupied by the different common areas of the house: kitchen, dining and living rooms. Each courtyard is an external extension of the annexed living areas. The remaining fourth vane is reserved to the bedrooms wing.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!Longitudinal sectionSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe materiality of the house is subordinated to the roof structure. A white painted concrete cantilevered surface gives character to the building. It is ramified in beams and vaults, and floats four meters above the ground floor plant. Beneath this element, a mat-building system connects to the ground, with local ceramic tiling and rendered walls. Timeless traditional materials are combined with modern glazed surfaces around the courtyards.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaWe could say this house is a sort of palatial workshop, something queer as a clockwork orange, indeed.

Physical valuations fall victim to Covid as 98% of vendors ask to go virtual

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » Physical valuations fall victim to Covid as 98% of vendors ask to go virtual previous nextMarketingPhysical valuations fall victim to Covid as 98% of vendors ask to go virtualResearch by Zoopla reveals how safety concerns have persuaded vendors to request valuations are done off-site or via a video call.Nigel Lewis4th June 20201 Comment1,394 Views Nearly all vendors say they would prefer agents value their properties remotely instead of during a physical site visit with only 2% saying they would be happy to meet and greet in person, it has been revealed.This extraordinary shift in consumer behaviour following the arrival of the Coronavirus pandemic, has been uncovered by Zoopla within research among consumers and agents.It found an extraordinary increase in demand for virtual valuations, with the number of digital valuations rising by 90.5% last month compared t April.The data highlights how, as the pandemic grinds on, vendors are increasingly keen that only the most essential parts of the sales process are completed online – with only viewings being seen as necessary.Virtual optionPart of the reason for the increase in virtual valuations has been Zoopla’s decision to change how prospective vendors and agents communicate via its Adreach Express platform.Now, rather than just asking to organise a physical appointment, vendors can also request either a virtual valuation and/or a video call with an agent.“After a 50 day market suspension, our agent partners have told us loud and clear that they want to plough forth and rebuild their businesses, said Andy Marshall, the portals’ Chief Commercial Officer.“Central to this is replenishing stock pipelines, without posing a risk to their own health, their team’s health, or that of their vendors.“We hope that this provides a platform from which agents can drive engagement with new customers – who might otherwise have been deterred to proceed with a sale while social distancing guidelines are still in place.”Read more about how Coronavirus is changing the property market.Andy Marshall Zoopla June 4, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentmark flynn, Julian Marks Julian Marks 4th June 2020 at 10:45 amI have never read such a load of old tripe. Do you really believe a seller would be happy for their house to be valued without a physical inspection of the home by the agent. People are generally very proud of their homes and want to show it off to the agent and know the agent is the right person for them when selling their most personal and valuable asset. I’m sure ZPL would love to push their idea forward but this is purely marketing hype, the reality is you will never replace a face to face valuation.We have come across this now several times since the return to business and vendors are not happy when they have been told by the agent they can only give them a virtual valuation, this has already won us several instructions so long may our competitors think this is the way forward.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
