Dominant pack leads Cheetahs to a fine Pro14 win

Dominant pack leads Cheetahs to a fine Pro14 win

Sport
[ad_1] The Cheetahs’ hot Top14 form on home soil continued on Friday night when they emphatically beat Edinburgh 33-13 in Bloemfontein. The Scots were in the game until they ran out of legs not long after halftime and the Cheetahs then finished strongly for a five-tries-to-one, bonus-point win. Edinburgh dominated the opening quarter but had nothing to show for it on the scoreboard after a missed kick at goal and a number of kicks to the corner that the Cheetahs were able to defend. And on the half-hour mark, it was the home side that registered the first points when fullback Clayton Blommetjies brilliantly nudged a grubber through the defence for Craig Barry to gather and score. Flyhalf Fred Zeilinga added the conversion. Blommetjies was again the creator, just before…

Enigma Mangi Mosehle explodes as Highveld Lions win

Enigma Mangi Mosehle explodes as Highveld Lions win

Sport
[ad_1] Mangaliso Mosehle is an enigma at the best of times. On a given day, the Highveld Lions wicketkeeper-batsman will frustrate his coach, Geoff Toyana, with poor judgement like the shot he skied in Centurion last weekend. And then he’ll play a match-winning innings like the one at the Wanderers on Friday evening as the Lions beat the Cape Cobras by six wickets in the Ram Slam T20 challenge. The 27-year-old’s 55 off just 36 balls was, at times, a brutal exhibition of hitting, reminded all of the punch the diminutive player packs. Mosehle really does have an unique ability to play outrageous attacking shots. None was better than the driven six off his fellow Protea Dane Paterson, a meaty blow that broke a panel in the new electronic scoreboard.…

Later Mzuni were also denied a goal for offside when a free kick taken by Lazarus Deco Nyemera was connected into the net by Chisomo Giliyoni. As both teams looked to open the…

Makazole Mapimpi soars again but Cheetahs gain lucky win

Sport
[ad_1] The Cheetahs snatched a 24-23 victory over Italian side Zebre with the final kick of the match in a Guinness Pro14 cliff hanger at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi on Saturday evening. Italian hearts sank as they watched a Fred Zeilinga penalty goal, awarded deep in injury time, sail between the uprights to give the South African visitors a priceless away win. The hosts, clad in their new rainbow-coloured striped jumpers, had clung to a fragile two point lead as the clock ticked down before a scrum penalty 15 metres out finally sank them. Despite falling behind early on, Zebre had dictated the tempo of the game and dominated possession and territory in an error-strewn first half, to build up a 16-8 halftime lead before the Cheetahs came back at…

Phehlukwayo, batsmen lead the way as Proteas stroll to win

Sport
[ad_1] The Proteas are one game away of winning all three series on Bangladesh’s tour after claiming a comfortable 20-run win over the Tigers in the first T20 in Bloemfontein on Thursday night. However, there’ll be a distinct feeling that the home side benefited more from the visitors’ own tendency to self-destruct than their own efforts. Despite the security of having 195/4 on the board, South Africa didn’t actually bowl all that well. Most of the seamers bowled far too short on a friendly batting surface that didn’t reward that strategy, especially at their pace. As a result, Bangladesh were 92/2 in the tenth over and on target as opener Soumya Sarkar (47 off 31) played some crunching, pleasing shots. But then he was trapped LBW by the impressive Andile…

Rainer Weiss, Barry C Barish and Kip S Thorne win the 2017 Nobel prize in physics – live | Science

Tech
[ad_1] On 14 September 2015, the universe’s gravitational waves were observed for the very first time. The waves, which were predicted by Albert Einstein a hundred years ago, came from a collision between two black holes. It took 1.3bn years for the waves to arrive at the Ligo detector in the USA. The signal was extremely weak when it reached Earth, but is already promising a revolution in astrophysics. Gravitational waves are an entirely new way of observing the most violent events in space and testing the limits of our knowledge. Ligo, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, is a collaborative project with over one thousand researchers from more than twenty countries. Together, they have realised a vision that is almost fifty years old. The 2017 Nobel Laureates have, with their…
