Chiefs look to play expansive game

first_imgCoach Dave Rennie says the Chiefs intend to stick to the high speed, open game they’ve used successfully in their Super 12 season.But says he’s well aware of the way the Lions defence strangled the attacking flair out of the Maori All Blacks in their 32-10 victory in Rotorua on Saturday.”We like to use the ball. We try and play a high tempo, high skill game of footy and the Lions have been excellent at choking teams from doing that so we’ve got a few challenges ahead of us.”Lions coach Warren Gatland says he’s expecting an open, attacking game from the Chiefs and the game is a chance for his midweek team to build on the Rotorua victory.He says a number of combinations still need to be settled for Saturday’s All Black test and he’s picking a competitive edge to his mid-week players tonight.”If you look back to the 2013 tour in Australia we made nine changes between the three tests.Players have to stay on form, be confident and these players are up for it.”Gatlands comments have been echoed by the Lions captain for tonight’s game Irish hooker Rory Best.Best said with injury cover and bench spots up for grabs, there will be no drop off in intensity.”We have a chance to build momentum into the weekend and we have a chance to get excited about playing for the Lions against a top side.”Gatland, who played 140 games for Waikato and also helped coach the Chiefs, said taking the Lions to Waikato stadium tonight will be a special moment on this tour.”If you cut me open I’d probably bleed red, yellow and black.”I’m very proud of my roots and looking forward to what will be a great occasion.” Photo: PHOTOSPORT Chiefs coach Dave Rennielast_img read more

Donegal chef is the most versatile in Ireland – Neven Maguire

first_imgCelebrity chef Neven Maguire has called Donegal’s own cookery master Brian McDermott “the most versatile chef in Ireland.”The TV star heaped praise on Inishowen’s No-Salt kitchen maestro by saying he could do anything.Neven told journalist Jim Gallagher: “Brian is a great guy and he deserves his success.“He’s a good lad and he is a great ambassador for food in the North West. “I always call him the most versatile chef in Ireland who can do anything. He can do MC, he can do demonstrations, he can do interviews.“He has so many strings to his bow. This year he did MC at the Taste of Dublin and he knocked the socks off it.“He was brilliant. Not many people can manage chefs and talk to them and know when the chefs are quiet – not nervous – doing demonstrations.“You have to be able to talk. Brian can do product food development so he is a man of many talents. “But the most important thing is he is a really good guy and a great friend to me. I love him.”Brian, who lives in Moville, is himself a regular on TV, appearing on RTE’s Afternoon Show with Maura and Daithi, and does demonstrations and radio shows across the country.Neven was talking at the launch of his new RTE series, Neven’s Italian Food Trails, which begins next Thursday.The glitzy launch was held in the headquarters of Dunnes Stores who are sponsoring the show with their Simply Better brand, of which Neven is brand ambassador.Donegal chef is the most versatile in Ireland – Neven Maguire was last modified: October 1st, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Brian McDermottchefdonegalNevin Maguirelast_img read more
