The bedtime ritual that has Fusitu’a flying

first_imgSince making his NRL Telstra Premiership debut in Round 2 of the 2014 season, Fusitu’a has been in and out of the club’s first-grade squad, battling a number of injuries which led to him playing only 32 of a possible 71 games over the past three years.It was enough to make the 22-year-old rethink his entire approach to being a professional athlete. “I think for me it’s not so much the things I do at training but more the things I do away from training, things like doing my own pool recovery or stretching before I go to bed,” Fusitu’a said in the build-up to Sunday’s match against the Newcastle Knights in Auckland.”The things I do at home are massive for me, I have a little setup at home so before I go to bed I stretch and stuff like that now.”If I feel tight on our days off then I get the roller out, just little things like that really help me out on the field.”I feel a lot freer and I am a bit more injury free now. I need to keep that up and hopefully the injuries stay away.”I am doing everything possible to stay on the field.”Even when he was fit over the last few seasons Fusitu’a was somewhat of a conundrum for former Warriors head coach Andrew McFadden; too good to leave out of the squad but not good enough to be a frontline fullback, winger or centre in the first-grade team.He played all three positions at various stages last year, but is clear on where he sees his future.”It [centre] is really a position where I would love to end up in and cement a spot there,” Fusitu’a said.”He (new Warriors coach Stephen Kearney) has put me in the centres to train there and use my craft there, so I am excited. He has given me the opportunity and now I have just got to take it with both hands.”From the moment he took over as the Warriors’ head coach late last year, while Fusitu’a was in England for the Four Nations with the Kiwis, Kearney said he always planned to play the 191cm speedster in the centres.”I think he can make himself into a world-class centre, but it’s a journey for him,” Kearney said.”I know he has sort of been around a bit, in and out through injury, but I think as a long-term prospect he can be a very, very good centre in the NRL.”[How good he can be] is the question he needs to ask himself. For me all the signs have been good for him. He spent December and January training in the centres…he is a real talent. “I have seen some real good progress from him over the last couple of months.”Fusitu’a will have pleasant memories of facing the Knights, given he scored four tries against them the last time they met in Round 14 last year, while he boasts six tries in three career games against Newcastle to date.last_img read more

24-hour lab services at New Amsterdam hospital

first_imgNew Amsterdam Regional Hospital is now offering 24-hour operations in its medical laboratory. The round-the-clock service began in February after the labs were relocated to a new building within the hospital compound. Services include microbiology, serology, biochemistry and haematology tests.A medical technologist at work at the New Amsterdam Regional HospitalTechnical Advisor to the Public Health Ministry, Dr Samantha Kennedy, recently had a walk-thru of the labs.“I remember when I was working here a couple of years ago…from 2007 to 2009, the problem we had was that there was no place for the lab technician to sleep at night, and so it was an extra cost on the hospital. Every time somebody comes in and needs the service after 4pm, you would have to get a driver, a vehicle to go for that person, and it takes time, because people are living at various distances. So for that person to get the care they needed in terms of labs, it took a long time,” she is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.“Our laboratory services have been improved because of the new structure that we have, and we are working on getting the backlog of lab work…and on getting more equipment so that we can move at a faster pace,” Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Colin Bynoe added.last_img read more

Ronaldo on Fergie: He’s the best coach EVER but I still don’t understand him!

first_img1 Cristiano Ronaldo and Sir Alex Ferguson Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he still cannot understand what his former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is saying.The Real Madrid star, the subject of a film documentary about his life which is now on general release, spoke of his respect for the legendary Scot in an interview with Jonathan Ross, describing Ferguson as ‘the best coach I ever had’.But he confessed that he still finds the Glaswegian’s accent impenetrable, stating: “I still don’t understand him. In the beginning, I had a translator, a Brazilian man, of course, basically only for him.”Ronaldo has described Ferguson as a ‘father figure’ and he told Ross that has has never forgotten his old manager’s compassion in allowing him to visit his late father – who suffered from alcoholism – when he was ill.“I just have to say thank you for what (Ferguson) did for me,” he said.“We had an important game in the Champions League and I said, ‘Coach I need to go to see my daddy’ and I was a key player, I was a very important player and he said, ‘Listen, your personal life, your family is the important thing that you have in your life. If you want to go three days, four days, five days you can go’.“This moment is what I keep for me because it was the most important time in my life and he shared it with me. This is why I respect him and for me he’s the best coach I ever had.”Ronaldo, who spent six years at United before moving to Real, also spoke of his affection for his time in England.“I respect English people a lot because they are very polite and they respect (you),” he added.“But it’s true, the time I spent here, people treated me unbelievably. I’m never going to forget that.”last_img read more


first_imgDonegal travel to Celtic Park tonight to do battle with neighbours Derry in the Allianz National Football League round 5 clash.The two sides have made bright starts to the campaign and both are still in contention for a playoff position, so the game takes on added significance.At the beginning of the season, supporters of each county would have been delighted if told that they would be in this position are having played four games. Derry have a new manager in John Brennan while Donegal also looked to be rebuilding under Jim McGuiness.Derry were particularly impressive away to Kildare but were surprisingly beaten by Laois at home on their next outing. They got their season back on the rails with a victory away to Sligo last weekend, although they were made to work hard for the points.Donegal defeated Meath last weekend and have plenty to shout about after four games. They will have plenty of confidence going to Derry this weekend and will fear no-one in this section.McGuinness will be hoping he can get plenty of scores from the ever reliable Michael Murphy while Derry will be dependent on Paddy Bradley up front. If Donegal can keep Bradley quiet, then they can add to their win in Meath last weekend and push for a place back in Division One again.*A full report on the game will be carried later this evening.EndsDONEGAL PUSH FOR PLACE IN DIVISION ONE AS THEY FACE DERRY was last modified: March 19th, 2011 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more
