LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A full review of Wales’ win over Fiji at the Millennium Stadium TAGS: FijiHighlight Attendance: 71,576For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. This World Cup is throwing up some thoroughly entertaining matches. Wales looked on course for a four-try bonus point after dominating the first half against Fiji, but the islanders hit back strongly in the second half and in the end the home side were lucky to come away with a win. Both sides found themselves on the wrong side of the referee, particularly at the breakdown, and as the game broke up in the second period they were plenty of harem-scarem moments. Wales probably paid the price for not tightening up the game, instead playing into Fiji’s hands by keeping the ball in play and kicking loosely. In nine days Wales will find out how crucial that missed bonus point is.WHAT’S HOTFast & furious – This match was played at a ferocious pace from the off and both teams were happy to run it from deep, counter-attacking from turnover ball and looking for holes in the defensive line. Wales full-back Matthew Morgan proved the most elusive player on the pitch, seemingly able to wriggle out of tackles with ease and finding himself in space, where he could use his footwork to good effect. Asaeli Tikoirotuma was a danger man for Fiji and launched some great attacks with his runs, particularly in the second half.Hard to stop: Matthew Morgan jinks through the Fiji defence in Cardiff. Photo: Getty ImagesHands stand – There was slick handling all over the pitch. Dan Biggar’s delayed pass to Gethin Jenkins, who then popped the ball on to Alun Wyn Jones, helped create Scott Baldwin’s try. Leone Nakarawa was looking for the offload as usual and is so hard to stop at full tilt while Ben Volavola looked more comfortable on the big stage than he had in Fiji’s first two games, his distribution impressing.The 50 club – Both Dan Lydiate and Taulupe Faletau won their 50th caps for Wales, while Akapusi Qera did the same for Fiji. The Welsh pair have been mainstays in their country’s back row for the past four years and are among the team’s most consistent performers, both with an incredibly high work-rate. Fiji captain Qera, too, is a tireless performer for his country and proved a real nuisance for Wales at the breakdown.Silence is golden – How pleasant to see Fiji’s pre-match Cibi respected by the Millennium Stadium crowd. The fans went respectfully quiet during the war dance and then cheered at the end. Let’s hope for more of the same during the rest of the World Cup.Nik of time: Vereniki Goneva slides over for Fiji’s only try of the game. Photo: Getty ImagesWHAT’S NOTBlack boots – Orange, yellow, green – these days it’s seems any colour but black is favoured when it comes to a rugby player’s boots.Wales scrum – As against England on Saturday, Wales found themselves on the wrong end of refereeing decisions at scrum time. It’s not a situation they would have expected to find themselves in against Fiji and they will need to sort those problems out before facing Australia.Whistle stop – Both teams were penalised heavily in the second half for playing the ball while off their feet at the breakdown and this disrupted the flow of the game. There also seem to be a few inconsistencies between referees at this World Cup, which is far from ideal.STATISTICS Clean through: Lepani Botia bursts past George North during Wales’ win over Fiji.

News On January 14, a number of heads of offices of foreign media – the press agencies AFP, AP, Reuters, the US television channels ABC, CBS and NBC, European television channels France 2, TF1, ARD, ZDF, RAI, etc. – signed a statement in which they protested against the refusal by the Israeli authorities to renew the press cards of their Palestinian staff members. According to Daniel Seaman, head of the Government Press Office, the problem of press accreditation is under examination. Without press cards, Palestinian journalists are at the mercy of the Israeli security forces, who may decide to refuse to let them into Jerusalem if they so wish. Some of the international media, such as France 2, have been obliged to call on teams from France to make reports in the Occupied Territories. According to the head of a press agency based in Jerusalem, press cards are being allocated “in a more less arbitrary fashion”. Although most of Palestinian journalists have been informed that they will have to wait, some have been turned down flat. For example, Awad Awad, a Palestinian photographer with the Agence France-Presse, who had a press card since 1993 was informed that he would not get the renewal.

Help by sharing this information According to information obtained by RSF, with some exceptions, the Government Press Office has not renewed press cards for Palestinians (journalists and others working in the media) working for the international media since the beginning of the year. This decision, which affects journalists living in the Occupied Territories who work in Jerusalem as well as those who both live and work in the Occupied Territories, is said to be for “reasons of security”. In addition, with the pretext of safeguarding employment in Israel, the authorities are refusing to renew press cards for technicians from foreign television stations, insisting that foreign television companies could easily employ Israelis. Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists News Follow the news on Israel Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of the organization, expressed his consternation: “This measure constitutes discrimination. No more, no less. It is not only the Palestinian media being targeted here, but also the international media, who will simply no longer be able to carry out their work as usual. We demand that the Israeli authorities go back on this decision rapidly so that Palestinian reporters can do their jobs in normal conditions. We need reporters in the Occupied Territories in order to find out what is happening there”, he added.

It calls on “all the European institutions and European Union member countries to step up efforts in support of the hostages.” This initiative was decided at a meeting of French news media executives and editors, with the support of Reporters Without Borders.At the same time, Aubenas’ father, Benoît Aubenas, will speak to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights this evening or tomorrow, using time allotted to Reporters Without Borders for addressing the commission, which is currently holding its annual session.Benoît Aubenas plans to say that Florence “was working in Iraq to tell us all, you and us, what happens in this country to men and women and children who are the victims of war, poverty, hunger and death (…) This is all Florence was doing in Iraq, like the recently kidnapped Romanian hostages, Sorin Dumitru Miscoci, Marie Jeanne Ion and Eduard Ovidiu Ohanesian. I appeal to your commission to immediately undertake all actions that will help bring this unbearable situation to an end. I am convinced that the governments present here will give your commission their full support in this respect.”As part of this desire to promote a really international campaign of support, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard and Libération managing editor Antoine de Gaudemar will travel to Bucarest on 6 April to meet the families of the three Romanian hostages, the media they work for (Prima TV and Romania Libera) as well as representatives of the other leading Romanian news media and political leaders.In addition to these acts of solidarity, Reporters Without Borders called on the news media to begin reflecting together on the concrete measures that could be taken to ensure better protection for journalists working in Iraq and, in general, in war zones and other high risk areas. “Safety has a price,” the organization said. “Not all news media could meet such expenses. It is imperative that forms of cooperation and pooling of resources are considered in order to ensure better safety for reporters.”Reporters Without Borders added: “At the same time, governments must think about how to better protect journalists in war zones. The Geneva conventions must be scrupulously respected by governments, beginning with the democratic governments, which must show an example. Thought could also be given to how reinforce the provisions of the fourth convention on the protection of civilians in wartime and the two 1977 supplementary protocols in order to improve protection for journalists.” RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Help by sharing this information Organisation to go further December 16, 2020 Find out more
RSF_en News Follow the news on Jordan Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today protested against the detention of journalist Mamoun Al Roussan, editor-in-chief of the weekly Al Jazeera, who has been held since 14 August for publishing an article and cartoon lampooning the Qatari authorities. His arrest came shortly after the Jordanian authorities withdrew the accreditation of the Qatar-based satellite news station Al Jazeera, forcing it to close its offices in Jordan.”This arrest has come at a moment of diplomatic crisis between Jordan and Qatar, and one cannot help thinking that the Jordanian authorities intended it as a gesture that would appease the Qatari authorities”, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to Information Minister Mohammad Adwan. “It is disgraceful that a journalist should pay the price of this dispute between the two countries”, Ménard said, calling on the authorities to release the journalist and drop all proceedings against his weekly.The Jordanian authorities withdrew the accreditation of the Qatari satellite TV station on 7 August, obliging it to close its main office in Amman and the offices of its four correspondents. The information minister accused the TV station of having intentionally undermined Jordan and its government’s policies.Al Roussan’s arrest was ordered on 14 August by the president of the state security court, Mahmoud Obeidat, who at the same time ordered the arrest of the weekly’s publisher and president of its board, Sakher Abu Anzeh. According to their lawyer, Haytham Al-Kayed, they are accused of harming relations with a foreign country, contempt toward a foreign head of state and his foreign minister, and disseminating mendacious reports.The charges arise from a photo montage (see below) published on the weeky’s back page two days earlier, on 12 August, portraying Qatari head of state Hamad ben Khalifah Al-Thani as a female singer and his foreign minister, Hamad ben Jassem Al-Thani, as a belly-dancer. The charges also stem from an article published in both this weekly and Al Chahed (another weekly belonging to the same publishing house) about the allegedly dubious ties between the Qatari foreign minister and Israel. According to their defence lawyer, Roussan told the judge their source for this story was information broadcast by Jordan’s public televison.The publisher was released on bail on 15 August by the state security court, which took the view that he was not directly responsible for the articles. Under article 150 of the penal code, the publisher and his chief editor are both held responsible for what is published, but full responsibility lies with the chief editor.
