Goldman’s UK tax bill tops £2bn

first_img Share Goldman’s UK tax bill tops £2bn THE UK treasury made more than £2.29bn from Goldman Sachs last year, City A.M. can reveal.Goldman does not publish a break-down of tax costs by region, but it is understood that the amount represents a 14.5 per cent rise in its tax costs compared to 2009, despite a 35 per cent fall in global pre-tax profits.The sum equates to 4.3 per cent of the £53bn paid in total UK taxes by the entire financial services industry. The figure includes corporation tax, national insurance, VAT, income tax paid by employers on behalf of employees and the effect of the one-off bonus tax last year, which accounted for $465m (£290m) of the cost.The tax bill suggests pay of £382,000 per head for its 6,000 London-based staff – far more than its 2010 average pay per global employee of £286,000. However, Goldman partners reduced their donations to charity in 2010, giving $320m (£200m) globally versus $500m (£312m) in 2009.The revelation of the bank’s rising tax costs will raise further worries that the UK risks pricing itself out of the financial services market with increasingly punitive charges for banks that want to do business here.Conservative MEP for London Syed Kamall said: “While it is tempting for politicians to ask banks to pay higher taxes after some were bailed out with taxpayers money, we need to think through the consequences of tinkering with taxation too much.” whatsapp Sunday 23 January 2011 11:20 pm KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULLlast_img read more

CAP warns operators over esports betting marketing

first_img Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Esports Topics: Esports Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates The UK’s Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP), part of the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), has issued a warned gambling operators to be especially careful when advertising esports betting, due to the key titles potentially being of particular appeal to minors.The ASA said the CAP has undertaken “comprehensive” work around esports betting marketing in order to ensure there are no gaps in gambling regulation.This has resulted in it warning all British Gambling Commission licensees that ads for esports betting must comply with the same rules governing all other forms of gambling advertising.The guidance observed that research published by GambleAware last month found that a large number of advertisements flagged as possibly targeting young people concerned esports, and so guidance on marketing in this vertical was necessary.CAP reminded operators that if a promotion is being advertised by a third-party social media account, such as through affiliate or influencer marketing, then the fact it is an ad needs to be clear.In addition, it said that gambling advertising must not be targeted at under-18s, either through medium or content and that advertisements targeted at adults should not pose a risk to children.Gambling marketing communications also may not be of “particular appeal” to under-18s, which the CAP said includes the use of cartoons, toys or influencers associated with youth culture.“The ASA has ruled that if an ad that holds particular appeal is very carefully targeted – such as within an email sent to only registered users whose age had been validated – then it would not break the rules,” the CAP said. “However, such validation may be difficult to obtain on social media alone.The CAP also reminded operators that individuals aged under 25 may not play a prominent role in gambling ads, besides on an operator’s website, and that this rule applies to esports players, many of whom are under 25.In addition, it said terms and conditions of their accounts and bonus offers must be made clear, even in limited space provided on social media channels.“Where there is limited time and space, some terms and conditions can be ‘one click away’,” the CAP said. “But remember, many social media platforms allow for users to use various techniques to get information across in a post.“For example, Twitter allows users to post an image along with the character limit for a tweet. We would expect advertisers to take advantage of all available technical options on a platform to include significant terms and conditions.”CAP will also update the Commission on its work in response to the GambleAware research, which found that 96% of 11-24-year-old participants had been exposed to gambling marketing messages in the last month, while those that were shown parts of gambling logos were able correctly identify an average of eight out of 10.The report also said this early exposure was a key factor as to whether a young person was likely to gamble in the future. If they had a close friend or carer that gambles, they were six times more likely to be a current gambler than those without such a connection.The CAP’s response to this report will be released in the Autumn.

BGC blasts ‘illogical’ north-east Covid-19 curfew

first_img UK industry standards body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has hit out at the government for its decision to introduce a curfew on casinos in the north-east of England, saying the measures are “illogical” and “make no sense”. UK industry standards body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has hit out at the government for its decision to introduce a curfew on casinos in the north-east of England, saying the measures are “illogical” and “make no sense”. 18th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy There are also reports that the government could introduce stricter rules for the whole of England, over fears that the number of people testing positive for Covid-19 could continue to increase. The decision came amid a significant increase in novel coronavirus (Covid-19) cases in the region, with the government seeking to slow the spread that is now impacting several areas of the UK. “Just last month, casinos in England were given the go-ahead by public health experts to re-open after they saw for themselves the anti-Covid measures they had put in place – from Perspex screens to best-in-class track and trace systems. Yesterday, the UK recorded 3,395 new cases of Covid-19 and 21 related deaths. Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Regulation BGC blasts ‘illogical’ north-east Covid-19 curfew A BGC spokesperson added that such will be this impact that some casinos may never be able to resume trading after the measures are relaxed. The government is today expected to announce similar local lockdown measures for Lancashire, following an increase in Covid-19 cases across the region. Yesterday (17 September), the government announced that leisure facilities – including casinos – in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, Northumberland, South Tyneside, North Tyneside and the County Durham must close at 10pm. “What’s more, most casino customers are on their own or in couples, making it easier to maintain social distancing in venues.” The body’s latest intervention comes after BGC chief executive Michael Dugher and Genting UK boss Paul Wilcock earlier this week wrote to Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden to outline their concerns over a mooted 10pm curfew for all UK casinos. In the letter, Dugher and Wilocak said that the move could potentially lead to “thousands” of the UK’s 14,000 casino employees losing their jobs. However, the BGC has criticised the measures, in particular the curfew on leisure venues, pointing out that casinos conduct between 50% and 70% of their trade between 10pm and 5am, and as such will be disproportionately harmed by the limitations. Other local lockdown measures include people not being allowed to mix with others outside of their own households or support bubbles, while people are being advised not to socialise with others at public venues. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regulation “This is a hugely disappointing and illogical decision which will inevitably lead to job losses in the casino sector,” the spokesperson said. “While we fully support the need to act quickly to protect public health, the simple fact is that casinos are among the most Covid-secure in the country, so ordering their closure as a way of slowing the spread of the virus makes no sense.

Rob Moffat wants red hot Edinburgh against Scarlets

first_img Head coach Rob Moffat has stressed the importance of Edinburgh continuing their flying start to 2011 with a win over Scarlets at Murrayfield on Saturday (kick-off 6.30pm) as the capital club enter a crucial phase of the season.This weekend’s showdown with the men from Llanelli comes hot on the heels of a 28-17 success in the second Greaves Sports 1872 Cup derby against Glasgow Warriors, and kicks off a run of vital encounters in both the Magners League and Heineken Cup.After the visit from Scarlets, Edinburgh head into back-to-back European games away to Northampton Saints and home to Cardiff Blues, before facing up to Newport Gwent Dragons, Munster, and Scarlets again on domestic business. Each of these three Magners League dates comes away from home.Moffat today underlined the significance of this week’s match to the campaign as a whole. He said: “We’re delighted to come into the Scarlets game on the back of a good win against Glasgow, and while we certainly take a lot of confidence from that result, it’s vital everyone understands that this is another huge challenge.“It’s the first of a number of massive tests coming up over the next few weeks and it’s crucial that we establish momentum to take into those other matches.“Scarlets are a challenging team to play against; they play a positive brand of rugby and ask a lot of questions of your defence. We’ll need everyone to front up as well as they did in the Glasgow win, and we’ll also need to show the same level of ambition and threat in attack.“It was a tight game the last time Scarlets came here [Edinburgh winning 24-20 in the Magners League in March 2010], and I’m sure Saturday will be no different. We need a strong set piece to give us the right sort of platform to attack from, and we’ll have to be aggressive and alert in defence.”Moffat has made six changes to the side that claimed a sixth win in seven home games against the Warriors last Sunday. Chris Paterson, who missed both Greaves Sports 1872 Cup matches with a shoulder injury, returns at full-back and will captain the side, with usual skipper Roddy Grant rested for this encounter.Elsewhere in the backs, centre Nick De Luca makes his first start of the season, while Scotland and British and Irish Lions scrum-half Mike Blair replaces Greig Laidlaw, having recovered from an elbow complaint.Scott MacLeod, meanwhile, comes back into the second row after sitting out the second Glasgow game through suspension. Alan MacDonald replaces Ross Rennie at openside flanker and Stuart McInally starts at six in place of Grant.Moffat continued: “It’s great to have Mossy [Paterson] ready for this match, and we’re also delighted that Nick is now in a position to be starting games and bringing his influence to bear.“The switches in the back row are pretty easy to explain, in that Roddy and Ross have both played a lot of big games recently while Stuart and Alan have been champing at the bit to be more involved. It’s a good chance for both those guys to really stake a claim, and they’re certainly very good rugby players.“As a group, we’re all very much looking forward to Saturday’s game and the chance it offers to keep moving forward. I’d like to put on record our appreciation for great support our crowd gave us against the Warriors, and we hope to see as many of them as possible again this week.“Late on in the Glasgow game when we were on the back foot, it was fantastic to hear that backing and it really kept the boys going. It would be great to get another big crowd and another positive result on Saturday.”Tickets for Saturday’s game are available online, via www.edinburghrugby.org, by calling 0131 346 5180, or by visiting the Murrayfield Ticket Centre (off Roseburn Street) in person.

Analysis: Slick Australia attack makes Wales look sluggish

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Wales are supposed to be honing their attack this autumn, but Australia taught them a sobering lesson in decision-making and execution on Saturday Phipps fires the ball to Foley……and Tevita Kuridrani charges into midfield before tireless locks Coleman and Arnold shunt the attack into Wales territory:It is worth pausing the moment Coleman takes the ball into contact to gauge the positions of some key players in this attack.As mentioned, Coleman is flanked by Arnold (numbers 4 and 5). Foley and Hodge are positioned on right of the imminent breakdown, with Moore and Sio (2 and 1) on the  left. Watch Kepu (3) and Hooper (7) double back to the left in anticipation of the bounce-back:Stephen Larkham is famed for his multi-phase strike moves and another is in operation here. Having imparted plenty of width early on, Australia are hoping to catch Wales overchasing to the other side of the breakdown.Phipps turns at the next ruck to find Moore’s front-row pod. In behind that, Foley and Hodge have arced around to the other side of the breakdown. Further wide, Hooper is with Folau.Biggar reads the situation and storms up towards Foley:From the perspective of the Wales defenders, Australia’s structure looks like this. ‘W1’ delineates players in the first wave – the front-row pod – with ‘W2’ identifying the backs in a second wave behind them:Moore finds Foley behind Sio and Wales look to have the move covered. This is very similar to the play that led to Foley’s second try against England at Twickenham in the 2015 World Cup, and Shaun Edwards will have done plenty of homework:However, the speed and accuracy of the running lines and handling causes confusion. Biggar and Davies both take the same man, Foley. Sio cleverly blocks off Samson Lee and Hodge has a gap to exploit with an inside pass.Now watch Hooper on the outside:He sprints in pursuit of Hodge, getting in between his teammate and retreating defender Roberts:Hodge calmly releases to Folau to beat George North……and crucially stays on his feet to receive a return pass as Halfpenny comes across. Speight, Hooper and Phipps flooding through demonstrate that any of four Wallabies could have scored this try:A very similar attack then provided Australia’s sucker-punch.Back to bounce-backAnother lineout was the source of the Wallabies’ third try and again, a series of punchy phases sparked the move. Sio trundles ahead following a peel before Coleman takes another short ball and Timani trucks into a pick-and-go around the fringes.It is worth highlighting a few points during the extended sequence above.First, watch how Kuridrani responds to Sio’s initial run by cutting in from midfield, first offering himself on a short line before adding his weight to the breakdown:Then, as Coleman receives the ball from Phipps, watch Hooper. He turns around, leaving the breakdown for his colleagues to resource before making his way to the left wing:Seconds later, as Timani picks from the base of the ruck and charges on alongside Pocock, Kuridrani does the same thing:When Foley switches play, Hooper is wide enough to cut back in as part of a shield pattern. Folau, also coming across from the openside, is set to fade behind Hooper and offer an option to Foley there.Further out is Kuridrani, who has sprinted some 25 metres without the ball to facilitate the attack. Arnold and Coleman run decoy lines to hold the fringe defence and Foley receives the ball from Phipps.Biggar has identified his man and Wales seem to have the move covered. But Foley scans the scenario expertly:He senses that Rhys Webb is itching to shoot up past the decoy line of Hooper and take Folau……so the fly-half misses out the slice pattern altogether, throwing the ball straight to Kuridrani and taking Webb out of the occasion:This view allows you to track Foley’s thought process as he clocks Webb’s decision and picks a runner accordingly:As you can see, Kuridrani finishes the two-on-one beautifully. A dummy causes North to drift on to Speight, who holds his width as Haylett-Petty had done on the opposite flank, and the big centre is over.Although Australia’s shape had looked slick in the first half, Hooper reinforces the message not to go off script on the way back to halfway following Kuridrani’s try:The Wallabies looked like a team that has spent a season honing their structure. By stark contrast, it seemed Wales were learning on the job during their meagre time with ball in hand.Pale imitationIn June’s first Test against New Zealand at Eden Park, it appeared as though Wales were on the way to implementing another dimension to their attack.Though opportunities were hugely limited against Australia – a share of 31 per cent territory and 20 per cent possession in the first period tells its own story – they looked confused and disjointed with ball in hand.Take this series of phases. As for Australia’s patterns detailed above, forwards are identified by their shirt number. We begin as Webb hits Lydiate, who is flanked by props Gethin Jenkins and Lee. Biggar is in behind, forming a second wave with four more forwards.Further back is Scott Williams in a third wave with Justin Tipuric close to the 15-metre line. But the ball never looks likely to get beyond Lydiate and Australia make a tackle some seven metres behind the gain-line:On the next phases, Webb hits Biggar. Wales are a portrait of inertia:Moiriaty does carry strongly, but the gain-line is hardly threatened:Without any degree of momentum, Wales’ forwards must commit in numbers to the breakdown. Their ruck recycling is slow, allowing Australia to organise their defence against an attack that is low on numbers.On the next phase, Tipuric receives the ball from Scott Williams some 20 metres further back from the first breakdown of this sequence.At the bottom of the screenshot below are Jenkins and Lee. Remember how Australia’s props, alongside hooker Moore, seemed completely aware of their respective roles in a cohesive system? The aim must be for Wales to get to the same point:Flanked by locks Charteris and Davies, Jenkins does spearhead a carrying pod on the next phase. Outside them, Moriarty and Lydiate are working hard off the ball – which eventually pays dividends:First, Jenkins trucks up:A well organised pod ensures quick recycling – clearly, both Wales second-rows are also possible outlets for short passes as Australia demonstrated all afternoon. Webb can hit Biggar, who has hooker Ken Owens and Lee beside him. Further out though, is a triangle of Moriarty, Lydiate and Roberts:Every situation like this gives the carrier three options. Moriarty can carry himself, transfer to Lydiate or pull the ball back to Roberts, who in turn can impart further width.Moriarty opts for the last of these, fixing the Australia defence before finding Roberts behind Lydiate:Roberts draws Hodge in turn……and Halfpenny arcs on to the outside shoulder of Haylett-Petty before releasing his own pass:Cuthbert gallops up the touchline and Wales make some rare ground.Although fives phases yield a net loss of five metres……Moriarty’s pass offered a slim glimmer of hope for how Wales can threaten in a more expansive structure. With time they will instinctively learn how to operate within this system. But during their development, they cannot leave dynamism behind. Australia showed that energy and organisation are not mutually exclusive. Wales need both attributes against Argentina.Screenshots courtesy of the BBCcenter_img A strangely subdued atmosphere descended on the Principality Stadium this weekend. All verve seemed to have drifted up through the open roof and away into Cardiff’s crisp autumn air.The mood felt close to resignation and Wales subsequently surrendered to a 12th consecutive defeat to Australia. Despite starting the match with just three victories from their 10 previous matches in 2016, the Wallabies utterly overwhelmed Rob Howley’s men.Australia’s 32-8 win was underpinned by constantly threatening attack – especially in a first half that yielded three tries. Their energy and cohesion contrasted markedly with the hosts’ insipid uncertainty.Here is a summary of how Wales were dismantled, starting with two sequences that underline Australia’s willingness to spread the ball.Early widthAt their first lineout, the tourists call a six-man set piece with David Pocock positioned at scrum-half and number nine Nick Phipps in the backline with Michael Hooper (identified by the yellow square below).Captain Stephen Moore finds Adam Coleman and Pocock comes forward, appearing to initiate a driving maul:However, Pocock immediately peels away, passing to Phipps. Ross Moriarty leads the Wales defensive line, alongside Dan Lydiate:Personifying Australia’s dynamism, Phipps sprints on to the ball. He has three runners primed to receive a pass: Henry Speight on his left shoulder, Michael Hooper on his right and fly-half Bernard Foley drifting out behind Hooper.Carrying with two hands, Phipps shows the ball inside. This forces Moriarty to cover Speight.Seeing that Speight has held Moriarty (red square), Phipps waits for Lydiate to bite on to him before sending Hooper into the gap between Lydiate and Dan Biggar:Hooper explodes through the hole in trademark fashion, reaching the halfway line as Speight follows up in support. Meanwhile, Ken Owens and Gethin Jenkins arc around and close in on the breakdown:Lopeti Timani arrives next and because of Hooper’s diligent ball presentation, Pocock is able to move the ball on should he choose to.Following a ruck that has lasted approximately two seconds at this point, Wales would surely be struggling to organise themselves – certainly, forwards Moriarty, Bradley Davies and Samson Lee are scrambling from the blindside to the openside to face the next phase of Australia’s attack:However, Pocock waits for Phipps to arrive, opting to seal the ball rather than move it on.When Phipps does reach the breakdown, he finds Coleman. Having already made a gain of around 12 metres from the initial lineout, the Wallabies generate more momentum through a strong carry.On the right are five Australia backs, with wing Dane Haylett-Petty (yellow square) hugging the far touchline to make full use of the field and stretch Wales’ defensive structure:After Coleman pierces the gain-line, Phipps unleashes the backs. Note Haylett-Petty is still as wide as possible:Crossing the 15-metre line after three ‘around the corner’  phases, Australia come back from right to left. Phipps finds Timani and we have the first evidence of the Wallabies’ pod system, the number eight flanked by Pocock and lock Rory Arnold:Timani’s robust run allows Australia to recycle at speed and the attack continues with another pod of three forwards – this time the three front-rowers.Scott Sio is at first-receiver with Moore to his right and Sekope Kepu on his left. We will see this pattern a great deal over the coming sequences:The Wallabies eventually break in behind Wales via a delicate chip-kick and land a penalty to go 3-0 ahead. Leigh Halfpenny pulls it back to 3-3, but Australia’s polished shape in attack was starting to take hold.In the screenshot below, playing under penalty advantage, they demonstrate the skeleton of their favoured 1-3-3-1 formation – one flanker stationed on each wing with two pods of three holding the centre of the field.Timani, with locks Arnold and Coleman close by, is first-receiver. Outside him is Australia’s front-row pod. But, with Foley (yellow square) sitting in behind, this attack has so much potential:When Timani stoops to scoop up Phipps’ dipping pass, the Welsh defence see that the rest of the forwards are flat outside the first-receiver. They sense a chance to press:However, Timani swivels and pulls back a superb pass into the path of Foley. Suddenly, there are numerous options.In the screenshot below, the framework of the attack is outlined by the forwards’ shirt numbers. Timani is in wave one with Arnold, Coleman and Moore. Props Kepu and Sio have held their depth to offer themselves as runners to Foley.As the screen pans out, we can see Pocock on the 15-metre line. With Hooper in the 15-metre channel closest to the camera, both flankers are setting the width of the attack:Timani’s pass therefore opens up the entire right side of the field. Israel Folau has dropped into the third wave as well and is close enough for Foley to reach him with a long pass from left to right.Scott Williams senses this, and creeps in-field. But Haylett-Petty has retained his width. Still under penalty advantage, Foley attempts to find his wing by the quickest means possible – with a flat cross-kick:He strikes it perfectly……and Haylett-Petty can take the ball in his stride. Scott Williams is turned and Alex Cuthbert must spring forward from the back-field.Circled are Pocock and Kepu – the next two Wallabies to touch the ball in a movement that eventually brings about an opening try following a driving maul:The industry and organisation of Australia’s forwards formed the backbone of their attack.Relentless kick returnThe next passage shows how spontaneously Michael Cheika’s team were able to slot into their shape. We start as Biggar boots the ball clear, attempting to give Wales some respite:However, Foley has sprinted into the back-field. He collects and passes to Folau……who scans the field before steps back to the right. Watch Australia’s forwards run back into view and start to mould the next attack:They continue as Folau gives the ball back to Foley……with Pocock and Timani on hand to recycle the ball after the fly-half has sucked in four Wales tacklers:By the time Phipps passes the ball away from the ruck, Coleman and Arnold have buddied up in midfield. Outside of that is the front-row triangle with Moore at its head.Backs are interspersed between the forwards, Reece Hodge and Folau in behind each pod.Note that Hooper has abandoned his spot on the right wing, making a beeline for the breakdown to support Arnold and Coleman. Though he is devastating in the wide channels, he knows that securing the ball must be a first priority:The front-rowers are organised, so Hooper sacrifices his position and bypasses the 1-2-3 triangle. Meanwhile, Hodge exchanges words with Moore, communicating that he will be fading behind the hooker in order to link up with the outside backs.Wales’ predicament is summed up by Lydiate, desperately trying to fold around the ruck to help out on the openside:Indeed, when Phipps passes to Moore we can see five Wales defenders on the blindside marking nobody (bottom red rectangle). Four more are in transition behind the ruck and three more are standing opposite Australia’s six runners (top red rectangle).Put simply, the speed of the Wallabies’ reorganisation allows them to overwhelm Wales:Moore takes the ball to the line, fixing a tackler before pulling the ball behind the front-row pod to Hodge. All the while, Folau and Haylett-Petty are lurking. Concerned by Folau’s presence, Cuthbert jams in from his wing:Jamie Roberts does well to fight past the decoy line of Kepu and on to Hodge, but Cuthbert has become so narrow than an offload sends Folau around him.The Wales wing did recover to drag Folau down, but Biggar earned a yellow card by pulling back Haylett-Petty in the same movement.Although Australia somehow contrived not to score in 10 breathless minutes against 14 men, they sliced through from their first attack when Wales were restored to their full complement.Against the grainAt the start of the Rugby Championship campaign, we examined New Zealand’s tactic of  switching back in the opposite direction following two or three narrow plays ‘around the corner’.On Saturday, after spending the opening quarter spreading play from one flank to another  – as outlined in the above sequences – Australia precede to carve up Wales with two bounce-back plays.With a full backline from this lineout, the initial plan seems to be to initiate a driving maul:However, Luke Charteris disrupts and Arnold throws the ball back before the rangy lock can force a turnover: Dotting down: Tevita Kuridrani scores a third try for Australia during their 32-8 thrashing of Wales in Cardiff last_img read more

The British Lions’ famous 1989 series win in Australia

first_imgThursday Jul 31, 2008 The British Lions’ famous 1989 series win in Australia The 1989 British Lions tour of Australia will be remembered as one of the most confrontational battles to be seen in Lions rugby history. More importantly though, it was a tour that produced a historic Series victory for the Down Under.Led by coach Ian McGeechan, the Lions tour of Australia encompassed a 12 match schedule, with the visitors coming out highly successful, winning all eight non test victories.They lost the first test in Sydney, but in the second in Brisbane they didnt back down to the Wallabies, and a few famous fightsbroke out that had the hostile media labelling the visitors thugs.The platform was set for a classic decider as the two teams went into the third and final test squared at one-one, with plenty of animosity adding to the occasion.Much of the match was decided by the boot, with respective goal kickers Michael Lynagh and Gavin Hastings having a contest of their own until a costly error that will never be forgotten.Star Australia winger David Campese had been starved of possession for the majority of the match, and it was that frustration that led to one of Campos most notorious blunders, and a moment that possibly cost them the test series.After an attempted drop goal by Rob Andrewwent wide, Campese picked up the ball and instead of dotting it down or booting it down field, decided that there was an opportunity to counter attack.He was confronted by Lions wing Ieuan Evans, and thinking that he would have drawn in the defender, he threw a pass out to Greg Martin, who was completely unaware of his intentions.The pass was a shocker, and it allowed Evans to easily dive on the ball and score the soft try that resulted in the Lions winning the test as well as the series.Campese was severely castigated in Australia for his failed attempt at the spectacular, and the moment would be one that haunted him for years to come.It was my fault because I tried to step inside and pass at once, thinking that Evans would come with me, Campese wrote in his autobiography On a Wing and a Prayer.In fact, when I passed, he was in between me and Martin, and when I threw such a hopeless pass he had a simple job in touching it down. I still think the idea was perfectly sound, it was just that the execution was wrong.So the try enabled the Lions to snatch a historic 19-18 victory, and take the Test series 2-1 by the narrowest of margins. :: Related Posts :: New British & Irish Lions coach confirmed as Ian McGeechan Classic Punchups From the Past – Part 1 Time: 06:35ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
