BILL OF THE WEEK

first_img Show Comments ▼ Sunday 12 December 2010 10:08 pm EVERYONE knows that life is too short to drink cheap wine, but not many are quite as true to that philosophy as a couple of City brokers anxious to impress a couple of clients recently at the Roux at the Landau restaurant. They forked out £1,020 for two bottles of Montrachet and a further £500 for a bottle of Grands Échezeaux, the drink making up more than three quarters of the final bill.Fine wine demands a decent accompaniment, of course, and the foursome made their way through platters of lamb, sole, scallops and foie gras – not to mention some luxurious desserts – for a total cost of £2,003.

Robbie Fruean’s huge handoff on Piri Weepu

first_imgSaturday Feb 25, 2012 Robbie Fruean’s huge handoff on Piri Weepu Here’s another look at that incredible handoff from powerhouse center Robbie Fruean during Super Rugby’s opening game between the Blues and the Crusaders at Eden Park yesterday. The Crusaders won the game 19-18. New Blues scrumhalf Piri Weepu had the opportunity to snatch the win for the hosts with the final kick of the match, but his attempted dropgoal was charged down, giving the Crusaders the win.Earlier in the game he had come on as a replacement and at one stage he got in the way of the human steamtrain that now sports a bit of a Mr T haircut, Robbie Fruean.A little off balance and a tiny bit high, Weepu was sent into orbit by the young midfielder, a player who in many ways was unlucky to make the cut for the All Blacks last season.You might have seen this live, or in the highlights that were posted after the game, but here it is again to add to a few of the other great handoffs included in the archive. It actually brings back memories of Sione Lauaki on both Richie McCaw in 2005, and Adi Jacobs in 2007.You can see those, and other great clips of Freuan in action, in the related posts below this clip.

The Art of the Offload: Brian O’Driscoll and Ben Kay show you how it’s done

first_imgThursday Jan 17, 2019 The Art of the Offload: Brian O’Driscoll and Ben Kay show you how it’s done After another weekend of European rugby that saw some sensational passes, and one in particular, Rugby Tonight’s Ben Kay and Brian O’Driscoll have put together this offload demo that explains the basic principles required to master the art of the offload.ADVERTISEMENTWhile Kay was more accustomed to ball handling in the lineout, O’Driscoll himself has thrown a number of silky offloads in his career. The two of them combine well here to show us a bit more about what is involved in recreating two sublime passes from the weekend.Thanks to throwing what used to be considered 50/50 balls, Ollie Devoto and Viliame Mata both put players through to score tries that otherwise might not have been.The Mata offload in particular grabbed all the headlines as he set up James Johnstone with a pass that’s seldom been seen on a rugby fifteens field (watch it again below).ALSO WATCH: Fiji training ground footage reveals how Viliame Mata was able to throw THAT offloadO’Driscoll and Kay look at how these passes were executed and show you the hows and whys of how to perfect that aspect of your game.ADVERTISEMENTTake another look at the Devoto offload here as Exeter Chiefs beat CastresAnd the Viliame ‘Bill’ Mata pass can be seen again here in the highlights of the Edinburgh vs Toulon matchADVERTISEMENTRugby Tonight airs live on BT Sport every Wednesday at 8pm credit: BT Sport Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Coaching , See it to Believe it Related Articles 27 WEEKS AGO Sam Underhill’s flawless tackle technique… 62 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leinster S&C coach gives some handy… 140 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones gives fascinating insight into… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

De Rosee Sa recently completed a magical lakeside cabin on the edge of woodlands in the village of Nouvelles, Belgium. A self-build project, the new 35 m2 cabin replaces an old dilapidated timber structure.  Save this picture!© Will ScottThe brief was to create a woodland cabin that could function as a picnic & BBQ venue, a guesthouse and a studio. It needed to be lightweight, simple & economical. Furthermore it had to be built of timber beams and cladding that had been milled from trees in the surrounding woods by Max de Rosee’s father.Save this picture!Floor PlanTo capture the surrounding natural beauty, its openings respond to the outside views and approaches to the cabin. The internal space has been designed for various uses including working, sleeping and socialising, and is heated by a wood burning stove.  Save this picture!© Will ScottWorking within the £25,000 budget, De Rosee Sa Architects undertook the construction of the cabin themselves during various trips over to Belgium. Materials used include concrete strip foundations, a suspended timber floor on brick dwarf walls, external timber cladding, which had been specially treated, and internal OSB cladding.Save this picture!Section 1Max de Rosee, Director of De Rosee Sa, said: “We have been working on this cabin for what seems like many years. It feels great to see it finished as we not only designed it but shed a lot of sweat and the occasional bit of blood by erecting it ourselves. My father has a passion for the natural environment; it was his idea to mill trees that had been ravaged by a storm some 7 or 8 years ago and build a cabin from them. The trips to Belgium have been a chance to bond as an office, further our understanding of materials and construction, and increase our respect for builders.”Save this picture!© Will ScottProject gallerySee allShow lessBestseller Aarhus / CF MollerSelected ProjectsHouse in Kharkiv / Sbm studioSelected Projects Share Projects 2015 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeDe Rosee Sa ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMonsBelgiumPublished on November 18, 2015Cite: “The Woodland Cabin / De Rosee Sa Architects” 18 Nov 2015.
