The low point came last February, when they faced a long drive to league leaders Groningen with only nine fit players. With ten players needed to constitute a team, and so avoid docked points, hooker Linda van den Dungen took the field with a hip injury and, borrowing three more players, they battled to a 139-0 defeat.“That day everything was wrong,” Huisman says. “We invariably play teams with more experience than us but have a great group of girls with the huge fighting spirit that you need to get the ball over the line. For myself I love to be in the mud and I’m proud of all my scars!”Led by scrum-half Kainah Marx, RC Delft have a prospective international in centre Suzanne den Dulk and a front-row rock in Simone van den Berg.The squad has been boosted by girls from nearby team HRC and, with coaches Johan and Frans Rijkers steering the ship, the side has ridden out the storm impressively. So impressively, in fact, that when they toppled RUS 2nds 17-15, Haarlem Raving Pumas 96-5 and RC Eemland 64-5, they rose to second (out of eight) in the middle of the country’s three divisions. “We now believe in ourselves,” says Huisman.Canterbury KitbagsThis article appeared in the February 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Last year, The Entertainer announced that it had raised £100,000 for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal alone through Pennies.Gary Grant, managing director and founder of The Entertainer, said:“£1million is an amazing achievement. The introduction of Pennies to our stores has been a fantastic way to collect for so many worthy causes.

Mr. Abbou has been in prison since 1 March and is currently on hunger strike.We are very worried by recent reports from his lawyers and family that Mr. Abbou has been suffering from psychological problems which may have been the result of psychotropic or neuroleptic drugs being given to him without his knowledge.Afer visiting Mr. Abbou in prison, two of his defence lawyers reported a sharp fall in his morale. He told them he had suffered an uncontrollable fit of despondency and waves of depression after eating. He also experienced feelings of discomfort and irritation on the surface of his body.But when he stopped eating, as he has since 25 July, Mr. Abbou ceased to experience any psychological problems.As justice minister, you are responsible for Tunisia’s prisons, including Kef prison where Mr. Abbou is being held. Reporters Without Borders calls on you to allow a doctor chosen by the Abbou family to examine him and carry out laboratory tests. A request to this effect has so far been refused.Preventing an independent medical examination would indicate a very worrying lack of transparency in the prison system of which you are in charge. A refusal by your ministry to let Mr. Abbou have such an examination would only bolster the allegations that he is being given psychotropic or neuroleptic drugs against his will. The credibility of Tunisia’s prison system is at stake.Former political prisoners have described such practices in Tunisia’s prisons in the past. If these practices are continuing, they must stop at once because they are tantamount to torture and violate all international standards on the treatment of prisoners.We therefore urge you to move quickly to ensure the physical and psychological integrity of Mr. Abbou, who has been on hunger strike for more than a week.We would remind you that Mr. Abbou was sentenced by a lower court to a total of three and a half years in prison at the end of trial on 29 April that was described at the time by Reporters Without Borders as a sham. The sentence was confirmed on appeal on 10 June.Sincerely,Robert MénardSecretary-General TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News News Receive email alerts RSF_en News December 26, 2019 Find out more Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists News Organisation
