Hunt, who was meant to start the game at hooker, was switched to the bench an hour before kick-off, with Bennett wanting to field the strongest defensive line-up possible during the first 20 minutes of the match.It meant Sam Thaiday played majority of the first quarter of the clash in the hooking position, shoring up Brisbane’s defence as the Titans put together set after set on the Broncos’ line.So dominant were Gold Coast in the first 20 minutes that they had amassed 63 per cent of possession, but it was not enough to crack Brisbane’s line as Bennett’s tactical masterstroke paid dividends.Hunt then came on in the 22nd minute and the Broncos scored one minute later, with the versatile utility sparking Brisbane’s attack through his running game and infectious energy.Hunt stayed on the field until the 69th minute, finishing his 47-minute stint with three tries, two try assists and 87 run metres.It was the performance Bennett wanted to see from his former halfback and the master coach hoped to see more of the same in the coming weeks.”Ben got it easy. They had done all the work when he got on, but that’s what he brings and that’s what we want,” Bennett said. “He’s a threat there. Kodi [Nikorima] is a threat, Darius [Boyd] is a threat at the back and [Anthony] Milford is a threat at five-eighth.”If we make sure we can defend well and be good with our ball control then we will put teams under pressure.”[Ben] probably will come off the bench for a little while until we get him more match fit in that position and more used to it. It worked well for us on Saturday.”I think [it’s a simpler role]. It makes it easy for him. There’s not as much pressure there as there would be if he was playing halfback and trying to organise the team.”Hunt has made the shift from the halves to hooker due to a season-ending knee injury to Andrew McCullough and his performance on Saturday night showed that the Broncos could perform without their workhorse No.9.It will take time for Brisbane to perfect their new combinations without McCullough but Bennett remained confident.”We are still a work in progress. We have a lot tougher teams than what we played on Saturday in front of us. That’ll challenge us,” he said.”It’s nice to see what they did tonight without Andrew there. It gives us confidence going forward.”The only worry for the Broncos going forward will be the fate of Joe Ofahengaue after the up-and-coming forward was put on report for a dangerous throw on Titan Max King in the 58th minute.Bennett did not try and defend the 21-year-old’s actions after the match, saying the tackle was “not the look the game needs”.

The Guyana Water Inc (GWI) has made an application to the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to adjust its current service rates.While listing a number of reasons for the proposal, the company indicated that the rates it was hoping to adjust include water tariffs, sewerage tariffs, and ancillary charges.The GWI in its proposal noted that it was requesting the change of rates owing to the fact that it was still operating under the 2005 tariff regime. This regime consists of tariffs approved by two agencies which are now obsolete: the Guyana Water Authority and the Georgetown Sewerage and Water Commissioners.Among the other reasons for the proposal, the utility company stated that there were instance s where domestic customers were required to pay a higher rate than commercial customers. Also, it highlighted that owing to a fairly low unmetered rate, customers were refusing to become metered, resulting in the inability of the utility to provide service at an adequate pressure.Referencing international standards, the GWI has said that it was ready to implement a fixed charge. The fixed charge, which will be used to subsidise the cost of maintenance for GWI’s infrastructure, will also rule out the compulsory minimum consumption of 10 cubic metres and 15 cubic metres and allow for customers to only be billed on their consumption volume. If the proposal is accepted, consumers will now be billed for consumption plus the fixed charge, if their consumption is at zero they will only be billed for the fixed charge. The proposal also contains special provisions for pensioners; one of which stipulated that their fixed charge will be waived.Similarly to the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) approach for implementing garbage collection fees, the GWI will host a public hearing in order to receive feedback and suggestions from residents regarding the adjustment of their tariffs. The consultation will be held today, February 12 at 10:00h in the Woodbine room, Cara Lodge, Quamina Street, Georgetown. All members of the public are invited to attend and participate in the hearing. read more

20 20 Bastian Schweinsteiger (13 July, 2015) – Perhaps Woodwards most questionable signing. Paying £14million for a 30-year-old, who was plagued with injuries, seemed to have all the warning signs to scare off most European clubs. Woodward, however, proceeded with negotiations and unsurprisingly Bayern Munich were more than willing to facilitate. 20 20 20 20 20 20 Henrikh Mkhitaryan (6 July, 2016) – United secured the services of one of Europes most dangerous attacking talents in the form of Mkhitaryan. Starring for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, a modest fee of £27million painted Woodward in a good light and gave him some much needed credit from his incoming boss. Luke Shaw (27 June, 2014) – Louis van Gaal secured his second signing of the summer after Shaw joined for £27million from Southampton. With the help of Woodward, United managed to see off competition from Chelsea to sign one of the worlds most exciting teenagers. His second summer transfer window was proving to be far more fruitful than his first. Eric Bailly (8 June, 2016) – Jose Mourinho was given an insight into the negotiating capabilities of Woodward following the signing of Bailly for £30million. The Ivorian defender was attracting plenty of interest across Europe, but with the help of Woodward and possibly Mourinhos reputation, the Red Devils got their man. Juan Mata (25 January, 2014) – Woodward somewhat redeemed himself when the January window came around by signing Juan Mata for a club-record fee of £37.1million. The two-time Chelsea Player of the Year arrived with six days to spare before the window slammed shut and gave Moyes the marquee name he was craving. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (1 July, 2016) – Ibrahimovics arrival at Old Trafford was more likely down to the presence of his former boss Jose Mourinho than Woodwards skills of persuasion. The out-of-contract striker added immediate star quality to the United squad despite not participating in the Champions League. 20 20 20 Anthony Martial (1 September, 2015) – Manchester United shocked the football world when they decided to splash out £36million potentially rising to £58million on the Monaco forward. The deadline day offer from Woodward and United proved too good to turn down, with the young striker scoring a relatively modest 13 goals in 57 appearances for the Ligue 1 side. 20 Marcos Rojo (20 August, 2014) – A relatively cheap fee of £16million was enough to convince Sporting Lisbon to sell the Argentinean international. Woodward also negotiated the loan departure of Nani as part of the Rojo deal, simultaneously solving Uniteds defensive issues and getting rid of a high earner who was failing to justify his place in the squad. 20 Morgan Schneiderlin (13 July, 2015) – The French midfielder impressed for Southampton in midfield, but it came as something of a surprise when the Red Devils decided to spend £25million on the 25-year-old. Schneiderlin arrived on the same day as Bastian Schweinsteiger as part of a summer revamp of Uniteds midfield. Matteo Darmian (11 July, 2015) – A rather underwhelming purchase saw United spend £12.7million on the 25-year-old Italian fullback. Woodwards negotiating allowed Van Gaal to take the defender on the clubs pre-season tour of the United States, but it was to be the first of many questionable additions during the summer of 2015. 20 Radamel Falcao (1 September, 2014) – Woodward reacted quickest when it was apparent one of the worlds most feared strikers was available. Despite the deal taking place on deadline day, Woodward negotiated a £6million loan-fee which gave United a frightening looking attacking trio of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and the newly acquired Colombian. 20 Daley Blind (1 September, 2014) – United took their spending to over £143million on permanent summer signings after the arrival of Blind from Ajax. Woodward pleased Van Gaal with the capture of a player he included in his Netherlands World Cup squad, where his side progressed to the semi-finals, and all for a modest fee of £13.8million. 20 Sergio Romero (27 July, 2015) – Seeing as Romero was a free-agent, Woodward probably had little to do when recruiting the Argentinean international goalkeeper. The uncertainty surrounding David de Geas future prompted the Red Devils into action and Romero represented an able deputy with considerable pedigree. Guillermo Varela (11 June, 2013) – click the right arrow to view the gallery – Ed Woodward captured the 20-year-old Uruguayan following a successful trial period at the club during the previous season. Varela represented David Moyes first signing at the club and was expected to be the first many of through the door at Old Trafford. 20 Paul Pogba (9 August, 2016) – Woodward enjoyed his crowning moment after bringing Pogba back to the club for a world-record fee. It may have been drawn out for the duration of the summer, but Woodward proved he could hold his own at the negotiating table by attracting the games top talents to Old Trafford. Angel Di Maria (26 August, 2014) – Six days later, Woodward captured Di Maria for a British club-record fee of £59.7million. It was a crowning moment for the executive vice-chairman, who managed to lure one of the games truly world-class talents to Old Trafford. Woodward was so pleased with himself, he even asked for a photo with his newest recruit. Marouane Fellaini (2 September, 2013) – The deadline day purchase of Fellaini did little to convince fans Woodward was a man the club could rely on. Not only did he pass up the chance to secure the Belgian at a lower fee of £23.5million, a deal was officially confirmed 51 minutes past the cut-off period. Cue a serious questioning of his capabilities to perform his role. Ander Herrera (26 June, 2014) – The acquisition of Herrera showed Woodward had learned from his previous mishap when signing Fellaini. Moving quickly to avoid paying a significantly higher fee, United splashed out £28.8million on the Spaniard instead of the obligatory £34million fee the Red Devils would have been forced to pay if they waited until July. 20 20 Memphis Depay (12 June, 2015) – Once again, United secured one of Europes most exciting talents when they acquired the services of a 21-year-old Depay. Finishing the previous season as the Eredivises top scorer with 22 goals, Woodward negotiated a £31million fee to reunite the winger with his former international manager. With the transfer window officially open, the time has come for Premier League clubs to strengthen their squads ahead of the new season.Manchester United have already added Victor Lindelof to their ranks and will be eager to bring in some more new faces in preparation for a title challenge.Ed Woodward will be tasked with fulfilling the wishes of his manager Jose Mourinho as the Red Devils look to use their financial clout to their advantage.But how effective has the club’s executive vice-chairman proved to be in the transfer market?talkSPORT take a look at Woodward’s record of bringing new signings to the club since his first transfer window in 2013 until the present day. 20 Victor Lindelof (14 June, 2017) – Lindelof remains Uniteds only signing of the summer window and there are suggestions Mourinho is growing frustrated at the lack of progress being made on other targets. The clubs interest in Lindelof has been long-standing, but Woodward still had to pull the transfer off. Mourinho will expect further names to arrive and wont want to wait for much longer. read more
Responding to the publication of the internal Garda investigation into whistle-blower allegations that senior Gardaí scrapped large numbers of penalty points without an adequate explanation, Sinn Féin spokesperson on Justice, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn called for an independent enquiry into the allegations.He also expressed serious concern about the way that the treatment of the whistle-blower in this case will deter others from coming forward with allegations of wrong doing across the public and private sectors.Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “I have had the opportunity to view a document outlining the whistle-blowers’ allegations. On that basis, I am surprised at the outcome of the internal Garda investigation. “Rather than battening down the hatches, Minister Alan Shatter and senior Gardaí need to let in the light and allow these very serious allegations of malpractice to be examined independently.“Police investigating police is not always acceptable. That is why the office of the Garda Ombudsman was established.“I am also seriously concerned at the isolation and criticism of the whistle-blower in this case. What encouragement has been offered in this debacle to others from coming forward with allegations of wrong doing across the public and private sectors?”The Garda Press Office issued the following statement: Commenting on the report published by the Minister for Justice and Equality, Alan Shatter TD, earlier today 15th May 2013, in relation to allegations of improper cancellation of Fixed Charge Notices, Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan said:“In October 2012, the Department of Justice and Equality referred to me correspondence received confidentially from an anonymous author, containing a number of allegations that fixed charge notices had been improperly cancelled by members of An Garda Síochána and alleging corruption, deception and falsification of records, malpractice and impropriety on behalf of some members.On receipt of the allegations and given the gravity of same, I immediately directed Assistant Commissioner John O’Mahoney to establish a high level team to investigate each of the allegations. The Assistant Commissioner and his team conducted an extensive examination of each of the allegations and identified, a total of 189 separate allegations, covering a total of 2,198 cancellations of fixed charge notices. The majority of allegations were sufficiently specific in nature to enable a detailed and thorough examination. Others lacked specificity and were so general in nature that a detailed follow through was not possible.At the outset, I should state that An Garda Síochána is committed to its vision of ‘Excellent People Delivering Policing Excellence’ and in that context, is fully conscious of its role and responsibilities towards Confidential Reporters and compliance with the Data Protection Acts.I want to acknowledge the detailed examination conducted by Assistant Commissioner O’Mahoney and his team in establishing the facts surrounding these allegations. I welcome the fact that on the basis of material examined, by the Assistant Commissioner, no evidence has been found to suggest any act of criminality, corruption, deception or falsification as alleged by the anonymous author. I am however disappointed to discover that there was less than full compliance with policy and procedures and in a small number of cases involving three (3) members, possible breaches of discipline have been identified and files have been forwarded to Assistant Commissioner, Internal Affairs, the designated authority under the Discipline Regulations for further investigation in that regard. In those circumstances it is not appropriate to comment further.The use of discretion by members of An Garda Síochána is best demonstrated as the application of practical, prudent and balanced judgement, which sees the law applied in a manner that is fair, equitable and appropriate to the particular circumstances of individual cases. The principles of equality and non discrimination always apply. In approaching the application of the law, An Garda Síochána and its membership must be cognisant of these requirements and must be guided by their purpose and intent.Assistant Commissioner O’Mahoney also made a number of recommendations arising out of his findings to strengthen the process and procedures surrounding the cancellation of the fixed charge penalty system. In addition to the examination conducted by the Assistant Commissioner, I also tasked the Professional Standards Unit, who have a statutory remit, to inter alia, examine compliance with policy and procedures and I have received a comprehensive report from that Unit containing recommendations on how procedures can be strengthened in this area.I am confident that both sets of recommendations together with any other supplementary recommendations that may be suggested by the Garda Inspectorate should provide sufficiently robust assurances with regard to the integrity of the system. I look forward to working with the Garda Inspectorate towards the validation of the strengthened procedures put in place. Finally, I want to assure the public of my commitment and that of An Garda Síochána to working with the Road Safety Authority and other key stakeholders in our continuing efforts to prevent road traffic collisions and our commitment to saving lives and preventing serious injuries on our roads network.”DONEGAL TD DEMANDS INDEPENDENT PROBE OF GARDA PENALTY POINTS SCANDAL was last modified: May 16th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:DONEGAL TD DEMANDS INDEPENDENT PROBE OF GARDA PENALTY POINTS SCANDAL read more
