I believe the Bulls, Lions and Province are in the same boat. Nobody wants to lose the opportunity to play in a semi and possibly a final. We can only control what we can control and as we stand now, we will have a full team to select from this week.‘All of our results from Tuesday’s testing have come back negative so we have been able to get the show on the road and prepare really well.‘We did have a number of players who tested positive last week. Some of those guys will only start their return-to-play process from tomorrow [Friday] and Saturday.  The rest of the contacts have resumed training, so we are in a good space right now.‘We are testing again later in the week on Sunday, but at the moment nobody has been ruled out. ‘Prior to this week’s break, the Sharks were able to find some attacking form in a bonus-point win over the Pumas in Nelspruit. However, after two weekends off, that momentum may have been disrupted.Pointing to how they returned from a bye week to beat the Vodacom Bulls at Kings Park in December, Everitt was confident his side would be able to pick up where they left off next week.‘We have shown that when we are able to pick our best team, that team does perform. We had a break before we played the Bulls at Kings Park and the guys adjusted really well and came back strongly. I expect the same next week. Obviously, your rhythm does get disrupted when you don’t play.‘It depends on how different teams train. We have trained in a 15-vs-15 format, so there is a bit of game practice. Our guys are raring to go. We have got some good players returning from isolation and a good squad to select from. That motivates the players and keeps them positive.’Photo: Steve Haag/Gallo Images From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVFormer Springbok, Bulls, Lions and Stormers scrumhalf Jano Vermaak names a team of the best he played alongside and against.SA Rugby MagUndoCNAHow is life for Cambodian boy linguist after viral fame?CNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndo熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?

Solicitors enter Dragon’s Den

first_imgGimlet-eyed multi-millionaires look on sceptically as you launch into your business pitch. Pulse tripping, you contemplate the excruciating embarrassment of freezing before the cameras and unseen millions gawping at their TV screens. Or maybe you manage to limp through to the end of your presentation only to hear your ambitions sneeringly dismissed by some slick-suited entrepreneur. Yes, Obiter has always savoured the sadistic delights of BBC’s Dragons’ Den, the programme where new businesses are given seed capital by already successful business people – or are shot down, ignominiously, in flames. North-west firm Hugh Joseph McCarthy chose to put itself through this torture to raise money for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. The solicitors had to strut their stuff before stationery and ladies’ lingerie supremo Theo Paphitis, one of the dragons on the programme. Employment solicitor Helen Harradine told him that the firm had given 30 minutes’ free employment advice to clients and then invited them to make a donation to the charity. Harradine said: ‘Raising money was the easy bit. It was the presentation to a dragon that was scary. I do amateur drama, but this was much worse. We caused some amusement by claiming that not all lawyers are heartless.’last_img read more
