The firm said it would focus on Abu Dhabi. John Dunne Mouchel slumps to full-year loss as austerity measures bite whatsapp

Welsh weather early storm at Vallis WayEaling Trailfinders 6, London Welsh 39Welsh were another side to take full value of an opponent in the bin, running in three tries at Vallis Way on Saturday while Ealing lock George Merrick served his sentence.But Ealing, who now look odds-on to bounce straight back to National League 1, were 6-0 ahead after 26 minutes as the visitors struggled to find rhythm and composure.Then fly-half Will Robinson got the Exiles back on level terms with two penalties before Pete Browne was driven over on the stroke of half-time.But after the break it was all Welsh, who added three tries in the space of eight minutes before Tom May scored the fifth to round off an emphatic win with just over ten minutes to go.Mid-table Mose in seventh heavenMoseley 24, Bedford 13Moseley look likely to secure their highest placing in the division after a purple patch resulting in two consecutive wins. Contests between Moseley and the Cornish Pirates at Billesley Common have resulted in draws on the Pirates’ previous three visits, but last Friday the Midlanders did enough to shade the Cornishmen, winning 28-20. And then seventh-placed Moseley did the double over Bedford with a comfortable 24-13 win at Billesley Common on Saturday. It was two tries a-piece but the kicking of Ollie Thomas, who notched four penalties and a conversion, put daylight between the sides. A delighted head coach Kevin Maggs reflected on his side’s improvement that has earned them a three-month unbeaten home run saying, “… We have some big games coming up at home, we are positive and we will look to win as many more as we can.”Once upon a time: Heath StevensPirates punish Jersey and Plymouth make it two in a rowCornish Pirates 19, Jersey 15 and Plymouth Albion 22, Nottingham 12 What it is all about: Below are the latest comings and goings in the ever competitive ChampionshipBy Richard GraingerAction from round 17 of the GKIPA Championship leaves the play-off slots looking likely to be berthed by the clubs currently occupying the top four positions.Bristol back on topRotherham Titans 26, Bristol 34Try scorer: Bristol’s Nick KosterHaving dispatched Plymouth 43-12 in one of only two games to go ahead last weekend scoring seven tries in the process, Bristol narrowly saw off the Titans at Clifton Lane in front of the Sky TV cameras on Saturday evening. In a fine advert for Championship rugby, Bristol raced to a 0-21 lead after 20 minutes with tries from Ross Rennie, Nick Koster and centre Ben Mosses, all converted by Nicky Robinson.But Rotherham, whose early defence and retention had been woeful, refused to lie down and fought back to 19-21 before Mosses finished off a fine move that owed its origin to a Rotherham handling error, swinging momentum back Bristol’s way. Then Robinson struck the first of two successful penalties before Juan Pablo Socino scored the Titans’ second try and converted to bring the score to 26-31 with eight minutes remaining. But Robinson’s second penalty secured the win and denied Rotherham the losing bonus point.Despite their sixth consecutive league win, Bristol coach Sean Holley was less than delighted by his side’s inability to close out the game saying, “Overall, we’re really pleased to come away from a tough place with a win, and we know that we need to keep improving.”For Rotherham, their inability to beat a side ahead of them in the division leaves them relying on those below them losing to secure a play-off spot.Leeds exact revenge on ExilesLeeds Carnegie 27, London Scottish 18Carnegie produced a result to put the semblance of a smile back on Rotherham faces by denying the Exiles a losing bonus point at Headingley on Sunday. For Leeds it was the perfect antidote to the headache left by 26-15 defeat at the Athletic Ground back in November, and keeps them in second slot behind Bristol.Leader: Leeds’ Jacob Rowan scored against ScottishIt was a tale of two scrum-halfs with Carnegie’s Craig Hampson dominating the game, orchestrating a comeback from 0-8 to 10-0 while his counterpart Robbie Shaw watched from the bin.Debutant Jonny Bentley scored Leeds’ third try to seal the win after Alex Lozowski and Jacob Rowan had touched down. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jersey are still not out of the relegation woods and will need to take more than losing bonus points away from tight games like this, as only seven points separate them from bottom-placed Ealing. Although the Pirates sit in sixth slot with a game in hand, only the most optimistic of supporters would put money on their side making the play-offs.Plymouth, who recorded their second league home win of the season thanks to Declan Cusack’s boot, are another side who can only entertain aspirations of a respectable mid-table finish. Cusack kicked five penalties and converted the game’s only try from Albion centre Heath Stevens.

The Rugby World Cup has produced some magical moments so far and Johnny Redelinghuys remarkable career came to a rather spectacular, or some could say unspectacular fashion end, on Sunday night as he lived out every prop’s dream and took a conversion attempt for Namibia.Redlinghuys pre-kick stance resembled that of Jonny Wilkinson’s – however unfortunately for the prop – the end result did not quite measure up to one of Wilko’s conversions! Redlinghuys was honoured in his final game, walking alongside Argentina’s Martin Landajo ahead of kick-off. Both men were playing in their 50th game. However this would be Redelinghuys last.Argentina were in cruise control all game, amassing nine tries as some of their fringe players showed Daniel Hourcade what they have to offer ahead of the quarter-final meeting with Ireland. They won the game comfortably 64-19 but today was all about Redelinghuys.Namibia were down to 14 men but mustered up enough strength and tenacity with a late try when the ball was retrieved and Eugene Jantjies went over. Theuns Kotze had successfully converted Namibia’s first two tries, and you would have expected him to step up again. However the King Power stadium roared when Kotze handed Redelinghuys the opportunity.Much to the crowds delight, he stepped up to the tee but hilariously his kick fell just short but that did not matter – Redelinghuys was lifted off the field in a moment which captured another golden moment in the tournament.The prop said afterwards:“I was afraid to take it at first, but my friend [teammate Theuns] Kotze convinced me and it was a good feeling, LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Watch Johnny Redelinghuys career come to end in hilarious style with the retiring prop living every prop’s dream and taking the last kick of Namibia’s World Cup campaign TAGS: Namibia “It almost went over, I was a bit nervous. My first conversion attempt ever and may I say the closest one ever.“It was the fly-half [Kotze], he’s a big mate of mine and he’s the kicker so he initiated it.“To get 50 caps is a great honour and it’s been a great tournament, my best of the three so far. I’ve really enjoyed it, but I’m retiring now.“I’m 31. I can go on, I have a lot of rugby in me, but I need to spend some time with the family. I am at an amateur club back in Namibia, but I have a business and family to attend to.”Fantastic scenes. Johnny Redelinghuys played his last game for Namibia against Argentina. Photo: Getty Images

Photo courtesy of Marc Andrus via TwitterEditor’s note: This story was updated at 10:04 a.m. on Oct. 9.[Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. Marc Andrus, bishop of the Diocese of California, is recovering well after suffering a stroke at his office in San Francisco on Oct. 7, according to the diocese.Andrus, 62, had an ischemic stroke, in which a clot blocks blood flow in the brain, and received acute stroke therapies, the Rev. Abbott Bailey, the diocese’s canon to the ordinary, wrote in an email.“He is recovering well and has improved significantly. This is a very positive result, evidenced by the fact that he is, true to character, talking up a storm. He is in very good spirits,” Bailey wrote.Bailey expects Andrus to transition back to work in early November. The diocesan convention, scheduled for Oct. 25-26, will go on as planned.To allow Andrus’ family to focus on his health, Bailey requested that any communication be directed through her. Bailey also asked for prayers for Andrus; his wife, Sheila; their daughters, Chloé and Pilar; and his medical team.“The family is immensely grateful for your love and support,” Bailey wrote. “As Sheila said, ‘He’s a tough Tennessee boy.’”Andrus, a Tennessee native, was installed in 2006 as bishop of the Diocese of California, which encompasses the San Francisco Bay Area.Andrus is a leading Episcopal voice on creation care issues and the fight against climate change. He has led several Episcopal delegations representing Presiding Bishop Michael Curry at global climate summits, and last month he was one of the bishops who organized a demonstration at the House of Bishops meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in solidarity with the youth-led climate strikes around the world on Sept. 20.
