  2. With the introduction of the Hike 100, Winnebago brings big outdoor camping to the small, towable trailer set. Seven feet wide, 16 feet long, and 10 feet tall, the Trailer is suitable for a couple or small family. Winnebago emphasizes the exterior with the Hike 100, offering a roof rack, rear hitch (for a bike rack or something similar), and two awnings that can provide up to 200 square feet of covered space. The induction stovetop can also be used outside the trailer. No MSRP was announced. Winnebago is showing off the Hike 100 on its new Winnebago Insider digital portal, which also highlights five other, larger campers. The rise in remote work possibilities and people just wanting to go somewhere where others aren't during a pandemic has resulted in an uptick in the #VanLife curious. Winnebago recently introduced six new RVs and trailers, including a small trailer called the Hike 100 that, dare we say it, brings a welcome dose of cute to the lineup. With a dry weight of just 2700 pounds and a seven-foot-nine-inch width, the Hike 100 will be towable by some small SUVs (note that the official GVWR is 4200 pounds). The trailer is almost 16 feet long and just over 10 feet tall. Despite the small size, Winnebago made sure to include as much practicality as possible. The rear of the trailer opens up to store outdoor gear you might not want in the trailer's main space. There is also a Thule-compatible roof-rack system for things such as kayaks or surfboards on top and a two-inch hitch on the back for a bike rack or similar accessory. A 190-watt solar panel is standard, and you can add on another for more off-grid power. A compact shower, toilet and sink—and a 31-gallon freshwater tank—let you conduct daily business without too much hassle. There are five different floor plan options for the Hike 100, and lots of customizable entertainment and cooking options, including an induction stovetop that can be used on the outside of the camper when the weather cooperates—or when it doesn't, thanks to a powered size awning over the door and what Winnebago calls a "bat wing" awning that extends over the rear and non-door side of the trailer for up to 200 square feet of covered space outside. Pricing for the Hike 100 was not announced Other new Winnebago models the company recently announced include the Micro Minnie FLX, a step up in size from the Hike 100 that the company said is the only towable camper on the market that "combines five new energy- and cost-efficient technologies that enable users to enjoy time off grid for up to five days." The new Winnebago Roam was designed to offer wheelchair users the chance to enjoy a purpose-built camper, while the new Class C coach camper, the new Ekko, was "strategically designed for increased livability in the footprint of a camper van. Winnebago calls the new Solis Pocket its "most affordable camper van," and it packs a lot of camping functionality onto a Ram ProMaster chassis. Finally, there are the new Class A coaches, the Vista and the Sunstar 33K, for campers who want a larger vehicle as refuge while in the great outdoors. Winnebago used these new models to highlight its just-launched customer portal, Winnebago Insider. This new digital platform is a place for the company to place virtual tours of Winnebago brand products and other approved marketing messages, like "expert commentary about models [and] user testimonials.

  3. ow do you improve on greatness? It is a question many rugby league clubs have never even really had to ponder. But as the dust settles on another historic night for St Helens, it is perhaps fair to take a step back and not only appreciate the scale of their latest achievement, but wonder where the Super League champions go next after again successfully defending their Super League title on Saturday night The Saints are only the third club in the sport’s 126-year history to win the championship three seasons in a row, emulating Wigan’s legendary class of the 1990s and the Leeds side that won it in 2007, 2008 and 2009. However, this does not feel like the end for a group of players yet to hit their collective peak. “I’m very confident in what we’re going to do going forward,” their coach, Kristian Woolf, said on Saturday evening. “The majority of the group will still be here next year, and there’s a work ethic and a culture built into them. They’re going to go out and compete just as hard as they did this year.” The likes of long-serving scrum-half Theo Fages and full-back Lachlan Coote will head for pastures new in 2022, but St Helens have long been preparing their replacements in Jack Welsby and Lewis Dodd, both of whom played in Saturday’s final. Fages’s St Helens career was cut short by injury, which gave Dodd an extended run in the side ahead of a permanent role as the club’s first-choice No 7 next year. “It didn’t end badly this year, did it,” he said on Saturday, smiling. “My chance as a half-back came in the way nobody wanted, myself included. Theo is a great guy, and I knew I had to do him justice for how good he’s been for the club, but also take my chance.” Dodd and the rest of the slightly new-look St Helens class of 2022 will turn their attention to the possibility of the chance to become world champions again next spring. Covid-19 deprived the Saints a chance to face last year’s Australian champions, Melbourne Storm. But there is a hope that the World Club Challenge can be revived for next year, which would mean a showdown with the NRL’s best, Penrith Panthers. “The media portrayed us as villains going into this,” the St Helens forward, Morgan Knowles, said. “British culture likes to see people fail and see an underdog win, but it’s about time we get the credit we deserve. We’re the best team, we’ve been the best team for the last three or four years and the consistency we’ve shown has been better than any team around in Super League. Covid robbed us of the World Club Challenge last year but it would be good to get a chance to play them.” Dodd and Knowles, both products of the never-ending St Helens production line, have a unique opportunity to take this club not only into a new era without the likes of Coote and Fages, but continue the dominance they have established for the last three seasons. A chance to face Penrith and win the world crown would also be fitting for players such as Dodd, who has toured Australia with the Saints’ academy in the past, and returned home a winner. “It was an incredible experience for the young boys to learn the game,” he said. “It changed me massively and put me in this position now.” It felt as though one era ended on Saturday night, but as the Saints’ new guard prepares to take the three-times champions forward, you wonder exactly where the ceiling is for this famous old club.

  4. I knew there was a point to my ludicrous hair. It’s this review. Because without my midlife crisis expressed through the medium of glossy tresses, I would not have been introduced to Fadiga. It describes itself as a “Ristorante Bolognese”, and occupies a tiny site on Berwick Street in London’s Soho. It’s located right next to where I go to be dealt with by the brilliant Filipe, a man who exudes quiet confidence in the face of great challenges. With immense forbearance he excavates something meaningful from the chaos of my endlessly explosive bouffant. While he does so, we talk: the usual stuff, which is to say the staggeringly intimate and profound subjects that any right-thinking person interrogates with their hairdresser. Regularly, he commiserates with me over brutally false allegations on social media that I’ve been dyeing my hair. For God’s sake people, look at my beard. Surely, I’d have dyed that, too, if I was trying to deceive. Once, with perfect mock solemnity, Filipe offered to issue an official statement confirming it was all model’s own. I still have him on standby for that. We also talk restaurants, which is why he mentioned the new place downstairs. It was odd. New restaurants need to hit the ground running to start making back the investment, so breathless news always pops up online. But of Fadiga, I had heard nothing. Once he’d done with me, and swept up enough from the floor to make a newly shorn sheep ache with jealousy, we went down to the street. We stood outside the narrow restaurant, side by side, and stared in through the big window at the cool, clean lines of the wood-floored 10-seater dining room, with its glass display case of freshly made pastas. Apparently, Filipe said, the chef was a bit “out there”. I found my way to the restaurant’s new-born Instagram account, which suggested this might well be so: here were images of candy-striped tortellini looking like humbugs and rhubarb and custard sweets. Here were ravioli in rainbow colours, or filled with blueberries or pear and goat’s cheese. It was both diverting and a touch worrying. Based on a lovely dinner there I can tell you this was all merely come-hither window dressing, though only of the electronic kind. The actual window dressing is courtesy of the ribbons of egg yolk-yellow tagliatelle they sometimes roll and cut on the wide marble sill hard against the real window. When we arrive for dinner, that marble slab is scattered with the promise of squid ink black tortellini. They are made, like all the pastas here, by Michela Pappi. The dishes are then cooked by her husband Enrico Fogli and served by their daughter Carlotta. In Bologna the family ran hotels, before coming to the UK four years ago to run a catering company. Now they have this restaurant, which carries the maiden name of Enrico’s late mother. Here’s what you need to know: that pasta, made daily, is bloody lovely, full of the requisite slipperiness and bite and tension. There are nine main dishes, all priced in the mid-teens, supplemented by a trio of specials. Despite the exuberance on display on Instagram (a lockdown project, Carlotta later tells me; her mum just got bored), it’s all comfortingly familiar. There is pappardelle with a wild mushroom sauce, or tagliolini with summer truffles. There are ricotta tortelli with tomato and basil, squid ink bucatini with seafood, and gnocchi in a butter and sage sauce. Portions are for those with ambitious appetites; if you ask, they will happily split a dish between two so you can try more. We have tagliatelle with their 12-hour ragu. It is everything the dish should be. The beef and pork in that meaty sauce have slumped down after all that languid time in each other’s company to become the richest and glossiest of stews, which cling to every ribbon of pasta. From the specials list there are those squid ink tortellini from the window, as black as an unlit night, as soft and silky as a duck down pillow, and filled with the bright white of filleted seabass. They come in a punchy mess of squid and mussels and the sweetest of cherry tomatoes just waiting to burst against the roof of your mouth. And then there is that classic: tortellini in brodo di cappone, the calming place where Italian mamas and Jewish mothers meet to realise their destiny as feeders. The clearest and most intense of chicken broths bobs with a generous serving of tiny curls of pasta filled with minced pork and parmesan. It is a steamy bowl you want to lean over and stare into; it is food as place of safety. I would be failing in my role as reporter if I left it there. Fadiga really is all about the fabulous pasta. There’s a very short list of starters and they are rugged, sturdy affairs. Alongside a plate of salami and ham, there’s an intensely northern Italian dish of crisp beef meatballs under a duvet of ham and cheese; there are scallops, grilled under thick drifts of buttery golden breadcrumbs. Both come with those cubed roasted potatoes to which the Italians cleave, slightly weirdly. Tonight there are just three desserts and one of those, a strawberry tiramisu, has run out. A new batch has just been made, we are told, but the cream hasn’t yet set. Instead, we have a mildly rigid coffee panna cotta and a zuppa inglese, that comedic take on the trifle, with layers of pink syrup-soaked sponge and cream and fruit. It is certainly pretty. At one point after the starters, we receive an apology for the lengthy wait and the offer of a drink on the house. I am baffled by the delay, given there are only four of us eating up here in this tiny dining room. It turns out that downstairs there is a large table of diners being taken through a pasta tasting menu. Oh, and the sous chef has gone missing. There is about it all the slightly nervy air of a new venture finding its feet, but in the sweetest and most beguiling of ways. Fadiga deserves all the love. Incidentally, it turns out that the shiny display case is not just for show. You can buy their pastas to take home. They cost from £1.50 per 100g for the simple ribbons, to £4.50 for the more luxuriously filled shapes. It means I can now get a masterful hair cut and sort out dinner at the same time. Result. Thank you, Filipe. Thank you, Fadiga. News bites Chef Simon Rogan of the Cumbrian restaurant L’Enclume has launched a set of ‘cook at home’ recipe boxes through the North of England supermarket chain Booths. The boxes, featuring ingredients from Booths suppliers, cost £20 each, serve two people and are available to order via the Booths website for collection in store. The first three boxes are Rogan’s salt baked celeriac, cod loin and roasted cauliflower and chicken breast with creamed kale. At The disaster relief charity Shelter Box has published a collaborative novel, Tamesis Street, shining a spotlight on the impact of climate change on global communities through a fictional account of the flooding of London in the near future. The writers include Bill Bryson, Joanne Harris, Sarah Waters, Mike Leigh and, er, me. It gets a mention here because my chapter contains an awful lot about biscuits. To get a free copy sign up to the Shelter Box book club. Also just published is The Female Chef, with words by Clare Finney and Photographs by Liz Seabrook. It features interviews with, recipes by and images of some of the leading women in the British food scene. They include Nokx Majozi of the Holborn Dining Rooms, vegetarian food writer Anna Jones and Andi Oliver of both Wadadli Kitchen and the BBC’s Great British Menu.

  5. Pope Francis has launched what some describe as the most ambitious attempt at Catholic reform for 60 years. A two-year process to consult every Catholic parish around the world on the future direction of the Church began at the Vatican this weekend. Some Catholics hope it will lead to change on issues such as women's ordination, married priests and same-sex relationships. Others fear it will undermine the principles of the Church. They say a focus on reform could also distract from issues facing the Church, such as corruption and dwindling attendance levels. Pope puzzled about vaccine hesitancy in the Church Pope backs women's roles in Catholic services Pope Francis urged Catholics not to "remain barricaded in our certainties" but to "listen to one another" as he launched the process at Mass in St Peter's Basilica. "Are we prepared for the adventure of this journey? Or are we fearful of the unknown, preferring to take refuge in the usual excuses: 'It's useless' or 'We've always done it this way'?" he asked. The consultation process, called "For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission", will work in three stages: In the "listening phase", people in parishes and dioceses will be able to discuss a wide range of issues. Pope Francis said it was important to hear from those who were often on the fringes of local Church life such as women, pastoral workers and members of consultative bodies The "continental phase" will see bishops gather to discuss and formalise their findings. The "universal phase" will see a month-long gathering of the bishops a the Vatican in October 2023 The Pope is expected then to write an apostolic exhortation, giving his views and decisions on the issues discussed. Discussing his hopes for the Synod, Pope Francis warned against the process becoming an intellectual exercise that failed to address the real-world issues faced by Catholics and the "temptation to complacency" when it comes to considering change. The initiative has been praised by the progressive US-based National Catholic Reporter newspaper, which said that while the process might not be perfect "the Church is more likely to address the needs of the people of God with it than without it". However, theologian George Weigel wrote, in the conservative US Catholic journal First Things, it was unclear how "two years of self-referential Catholic chatter" would address other problems the Church such as those who are "drifting away from the faith in droves". Much of the reporting of this two-year consultation has focused on some of the issues that often appear to dominate reporting on the Catholic Church: the role of women for example, and whether they will ever be ordained as priests (the Pope says "no"). While those topics are often of concern to some Catholics, other areas which traditionally dominate Catholic social teaching, such as alleviating poverty, and increasingly, climate change, will likely play a greater part, as will how the Church is run. In reality, any issue can be raised. Don't expect any sudden changes to Church rules though. It's true that some Catholics do want to see a different kind of institution, but for Pope Francis, allowing ordinary worshippers to have their concerns (eventually) raised at the Vatican - even if their bishops disagree with them - is a huge step change for this 2000 year-old religion.

  6. In a move which will surprise nobody at all, Apple has filed a notice of appeal in the antitrust trial against Epic, makers of Unreal engine and Fortnite. Though it won nine of the ten charges against it, Apple's single loss was a pretty severe one. Enough that we called it a big win for Epic, though Apple says it was their win. Apple's loss is that it was ordered to allow mobile apps to point consumers at outside payment methods. That would let apps avoid the 15-30% share of their earnings that they have to give to Apple right now. Apple's appeal includes a request for a stay on the injunction that lets developers add in-app links to payment websites outside Apple's ecosystem. That means Apple wants to wait until all the appeals are concluded before being forced to comply with the court's ruling—potentially adding years to the time before that order takes effect. As of now, the injunction would begin on December 9th. "“The requested stay will allow Apple to protect consumers and safeguard its platform while the company works through the complex and rapidly evolving legal, technological, and economic issues that any revisions to this Guideline would implicate," said Apple. Epic has already appealed the ruling as well, looking for more than a single victory (and pondering the meaning of the word button.

  7. The tech giant announced the upcoming changes Thursday to Google Assistant and Android Auto driving modes and a new automaker, Honda, will have Google technology installed in its vehicles. Google said that drivers using Google Assistant on Android phones will soon see a new dashboard they say will reduce "the need to fiddle with your phone while also making sure you stay focused on the road." Instead of scrolling while driving, Google said drivers could tap to see who just called or sent a text and have access to several apps to listen to music with the new dashboard. The dashboard will also include a new messaging update where drivers can say, "Hey Google, turn on auto-read," to hear their new messages read aloud when they come in and respond by voice. These new changes for drivers are apparently part of what Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and parent company Alphabet, said in a blog earlier this year to make its technologies "universally accessible and useful." For example, users of Android Auto, Google's smartphone app for vehicles, via their Android phones will now be able to see music, news, and podcast recommendations from Google Assistant and they can set which app launches whenever Android Auto starts. Those Android Auto users will soon be able to play games appearing on the vehicle's display with a new feature called GameSnacks while they're waiting or parking. Additionally, Android Auto and Android phone users can make contactless payments for gas using Google Pay. This feature is available at more than 32,000 gas stations across the U.S., including ExxonMobil, Conoco, 76 stations and Phillips 66. On Thursday, Google announced that Japanese automaker Honda will be the latest to have Google built-in technology in its vehicles beginning in 2022. Honda, which announced in April it's aiming to sell only electric vehicles in North America by 2040, will join the likes of Ford, General Motors, Polestar, Renault and Volvo that will have its future vehicles released with default Android operating systems. The Polestar 2 and Volvo XC40 Recharge are among the current models with Google's built-in tech.
  8. HP has once again listed unreleased and next-generation hardware such as the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU series for its All-In-One Desktop PCs. Previously, HP listed down NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series graphics cards for its high-end 34 Inch AIO Desktop PCs. Now, the company has confirmed that it will be launching its 24 and 27-Inch AIO PC lineup in both AMD Ryzen 7000 and Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake CPU flavors. This is also the first time that we have seen the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU lineup listed which means that AMD might be skipping the Ryzen 6000 CPU nomenclature altogether and go two steps ahead with the Ryzen 7000 branding. As stated above, the HP 24 & 27-inch AIO Desktop PCs come in Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake or AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU flavors, feature up to 1 TB PCIe SSD and 2 TB HDD, a full-HD display, a camera & dual speakers. The AIO PC will come in White and Black colors and rock the Windows 11 operating system. The AMD Ryzen 7000 series listed for the HP 24 and 27 inch AIO Desktop PCs might be Rembrandt CPUs instead of Zen 4 chips because 'Raphael' is almost a year away from launch. If AMD goes with the Ryzen 7000 series for both its next-gen Ryzen CPU and APU lineup, that would include the AMD Ryzen 7000G APU 'Rembrandt' and Ryzen 7000 'Vermeer 3DX' chips. It is unlikely to see these All-In-One PCs rocking a desktop chip so a mobility chip like the next-gen Rembrandt APUs is more likely. The two key technologies that will power Rembrandt will be a new Zen 3+ CPU & RDNA 2 GPU architecture. The Rembrandt APUs are said to be fabricated on the TSMC 6nm process node which is an optimized version of the N7 process. Other prominent features of the Rembrandt Ryzen APUs from AMD will include support for PCIe Gen 4 and LPDDR5/DDR5 memory support. The Rembrandt APUs will feature up to DDR5-5200 memory support, 20 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, and two USB 4 (40 Gbps) ports. As per the roadmap, the Rembrandt APUs will feature support on the FP7 platform. AMD is expected to announce its Rembrandt APU lineup (Ryzen 7000H, Ryzen 7000U) during CES 2022 and will go up against Intel's Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M chips which are expected to be unveiled later this year with solutions arriving early next year. We will keep you updated as soon as we hear more on AMD's Ryzen 7000 CPU and APU lineup.

  10. There's a big white whale swimming off the coast of Seattle, and no one knows why. Over the past week, people in the greater Seattle area have spotted the white whale swimming around Puget Sound. The wayward cetacean — a beluga — is normally found in Arctic and subarctic waters. "The closest beluga po[CENSORED]tion is Cook Inlet, Alaska," which is about 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) away from Seattle, Howard Garrett, co-founder of Orca Network, a nonprofit that raises awareness about whales in Puget Sound, told Live Science. "I haven't checked the water temperatures there, but I'm sure they're a bit colder up there than here." Related: Photos: Meet 'Finding Dory' real-life counterparts One of the first reported sightings occurred on Sunday (Oct. 3), when Jason Rogers, of Bonney Lake, Washington, filmed the white whale swimming in Commencement Bay near Tacoma, about 30 miles (50 km) south of Seattle. "It was a surreal experience, to be sure," Rogers told Live Science in an email. "Sailing in Commencement Bay was the last place we thought we would see a whale, much less a beluga! There it was, swimming along peacefully, although it really felt out of place." Other people spotted the beluga (Delphinapterus leucas) around Puget Sound, even swimming by three different shipyards. "I don't understand the attraction of a shipyard to a beluga," Garrett said. "I don't know if that's a clue, if that means it had been held captive at a shipyard somewhere at a busy port, but we have no documents, no idea of where that would be, certainly in North America." In 2019, a beluga whale wearing a harness that read "Equipment of St. Petersburg" and spotted in Norwegian waters was suspected of being a Russian spy, Live Science previously reported. That beluga, nicknamed Hvaldimir, is still swimming in Scandinavian waters; animal welfare activists are worried it may not be able to hunt by itself and avoid humans, according to the BBC. Like many other Arctic and subarctic animals, beluga adults are white, which helps them stay camouflaged in a world of snow and sea ice, according to the Georgia Aquarium. Belugas are also known for their unique "melons," the round bumps on their heads that the whales use for communication and echolocation. In fact, belugas are social animals that live in pods of as many as 100 individuals, Garrett said, which makes this lone whale's journey all the more mysterious. So, why did this whale venture out on its own? "Until we have some indication, my default theory is that this whale just decided to go out walking, go explore," Garrett said. "It wanted to travel. It's highly unusual, but every now and then it happens with different [beluga] po[CENSORED]tions. So, it's not totally unprecedented, but definitely very rare." The last documented sighting of a beluga whale in Puget Sound was in 1940, Garrett said. There was also a report of a beluga in Puget Sound in 2010, but only one person reported seeing it, and they weren't able to get any photographic evidence of it, he noted. Related: Photos: Response teams try to save starving killer whale In 2020, a beluga whale washed up dead in Baja California Sur, Mexico, according to The Mercury News. It's still a mystery why that whale swam to such warm waters. "I don't know why a beluga would do that," Garrett said. That said, the Puget Sound beluga appears to be in good health, at least according to sightings of it so far. Belugas eat squid, small fish and crabs, "and there's plenty of that in Puget Sound," he said. Puget Sound is also home to other whales, including transient and resident orcas and migrating gray whales, humpback whales and minke whales, Garret said. Local whale and other animal groups are aware of the wayward beluga, including the local branch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which hopes to safely approach the whale to get images of it. Such images could be compared with photos of other known beluga whales, and might help scientists identify where the Puget Sound visitor came from, Garrett said. To report a sighting of the beluga, call the Whale Sighting Network at (360) 331-3543 or toll-free at (866) ORCANET (672-2638); or you can email [email protected] But don't get too close to the cetacean; they're protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which requires that watercraft stay at least 100 yards (91 meters) away, although a greater distance is recommended, according to Whale Wise.

  11. Mercedes-Benz's battery powered EQS450+ (above) and EQS580 have an EPA range of 350 or 340 miles of range, besting their German competition by more than 100 miles. Tesla and Lucid easily beat the new Benz's range with the Model S Long Range coming in at 405 miles and the Lucid Air Dream R AWD covering 520 miles per charge. The EQS450+ boasts the lowest drag coefficient (Cd) or any car for sale and will start at $103,360. The premium-electric-car segment is mostly about two numbers: horsepower and range. Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz announced that its new dual-motor EQS580 would have 516 horsepower and that the single-motor EQS450+ would come in at 329 horsepower, but now we've learned the official EPA-rated range. According to the EPA, the 107.8-kWh-equipped 580 will travel 340 miles while the single-motor 450+ with the same battery will make it 350 miles on a charge. Mercedes credits its aggressive regeneration strategy, large battery, and the EQS's incredibly low 0.20 drag coefficient for the range number. But while the EV Benz's range compares favorably with the German competition, it falls behind the range of startups like Tesla and Lucid. The best a Porsche Taycan can do is 227 miles—Taycan 4S Performance Battery Plus—and the farthest an Audi e-tron GT can go on a charge is 238 miles. Yet the Benz can't touch the Tesla Model S Long Range's impressive 405-mile number; nor can it come close to the Lucid Air Dream R AWD's 520 miles of EPA range. An important element of any car, electric or otherwise, is the price. The EQS450+ will start at $103,360, moving up to the Exclusive Level costs $3400, and the appropriately named Pinnacle Level comes in at $109,560. Pricing for the more powerful EQS580 opens at $120,160, requires an additional $3400 for the Exclusive trim, and, for those who want it all, the Pinnacle will wear a $126,360 window sticker. Link:-
  12. Marcus Smith capped his first appearance of the season with a stunning solo try in another thrilling comeback victory for Harlequins against Bristol. Harlequins were 21 points down when Smith came off the bench in the first half but eight tries later Bristol had been ruthlessly put to the sword by the 22-year-old fly-half and his irrepressible captain Alex Dombrandt. It was exhibition stuff by the end and that should concern Pat Lam, whose side have lost three of their opening four matches and capitulated in both away from home. For if a comeback victory for Harlequins against Bristol sounds familiar, it should be noted that Smith and co romped to victory here after turning the tide. Their semi-final win last season was a nail-biting classic, here they simply turned up the heat and Bristol melted. Just as was the case last term, however, when Smith is at the helm Harlequins simply do not know when they are beaten and with Louis Lynagh in a rich vein of scoring form – he notched another two here – they will always take some stopping. This was their third bonus point victory of the season to move top of the table and perhaps their biggest problem will come in the autumn – for surely Smith and Dombrandt will be busy with England in November. “Marcus Smith in this system is exceptional, any time he gets into his groove he not only creates opportunities but is a real handful for the opposition and the try he scored on the chip through shows a world class skill set,” said the Harlequins coach Tabai Matson. “I wouldn’t say Alex is unique but he’s rare as a loose forward. He’s very skilled. I thought he played exceptionally well. Defensively he was bloody good today.” Just as was the case in June, Bristol took a 21-0 lead, swarming all over Harlequins in the opening quarter and giving Harry Randall Sheedy front-foot ball with which to prise openings. Twice the scrum-half caught Harlequins cold with quickly-taken penalties – the second of which led to Joe Joyce’s opening try after the scrum-half had been stopped just short of the line. Bristol’s second try was a peach, finished by Henry Purdy, who arced his way into the space on the left before stepping inside. Callum Sheedy converted for a second time and Harlequins were rattled when Charles Piutau was over for Bristol’s third on 25 minutes. In the buildup to Piutau’s try, the Harlequins fly-half Tommaso Allan suffered a nasty head injury, which saw Smith’s introduction – and an enormous roar from the crowd as he came on – far earlier than planned. It had the desired effect with a scything break from Andre Esterhuizen up the middle giving Harlequins the platform to register their first try through Lynagh, who, he is fast becoming prolific and comments earlier in the day from Australia’s coach Dave Rennie that the Wallabies will be waiting in the wings if he is not capped by England will not have gone unnoticed by Eddie Jones. Bristol again started the brighter after the interval but Dombrandt was leading the defensive resistance and not for the first time came up with a key turnover. Smith missed touch with the penalty but no matter – moments later he shimmied through a gap and offloaded to Lynagh who exchanged passes with Esterhuizen before running clear. Smith’s conversion brought Harlequins to within 10 and two minutes later they were within touching distance with Esterhuizen finishing off after a delightful offload from Dombrandt. Smith missed the conversion but, with Bristol’s Jake Heenan shown a yellow card for infringing in the buildup, Harlequins had the lead by the hour mark when the replacement Luke Northmore plunged over. When Will Collier scampered over for Harlequins’ fifth try the game was up for Bristol and Tyrone Green notched No 6 in the left-hand corner after Smith’s crossfield kick. Smith then got in on the act with a fine chip and gather and Dombrandt rounded things off. “Rugby is a simple game,” said Lam. “We need 15 guys on the same page, doing their jobs well. We take the glory when we win games and we’ll take the hurt when we lose the game.” Link:-
  13. Michael on Dom What were you hoping for? A face out of Caravaggio’s sketchbooks? A body cut from the Parthenon friezes? Hopes should outpace expectations. First impressions? Good. With cocktails on order when I arrived, Dom was clearly on the same page as me. What did you talk about? Our talk was extravagantly digressive. Here’s some of it: feeling at home in other countries, Rome in winter, Catholic families, coming out, that it has become un-chic to like Timothée Chalamet, peaches, the professor-student relationship. Any awkward moments? When his knowledge of Australiana outstripped mine. Being Australian is my whole shtick. Take that away and what am I? Good table manners? Faultless. Best thing about Dom? He manages to be unstoppably funny without sacrificing sincerity. He has an inner warmth. Would you introduce him to your friends? In a heartbeat. He’d charm them all. Describe Dom in three words Dalston’s hottest ticket. What do you think he made of you? Earnest. In need of direction. Did you go on somewhere? He offered to walk me to the station. (Notice how I didn’t answer the question?) And … did you kiss? The better question is how we kissed. If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be? I wouldn’t change a thing. Even the rain added something. He lent me his jacket. Marks out of 10? 10. Would you meet again? Dom on Michael What were you hoping for? Either a free pint or a proposal – nothing in between. First impressions? Tall, good-looking, dressed like an extra in Call Me by Your Name. What did you talk about? Lots: Catholicism, Desert Island Discs, death row meals, whether “Australiana” music is a thing. Any awkward moments? In hindsight, I think my outrage at him (an Australian) not knowing who Holly Valance was might have been a bit much. Good table manners? Impeccable. Best thing about Michael? He’s an engaging and engaged conversationalist. Would you introduce him to your friends? If they promised to be nicer to him than they are to me. Describe Michael in three words Intelligent, articulate, charming. What do you think he made of you? A laugh, I hope? Did you go on somewhere? No comment. And … did you kiss? He came all the way from Cambridge – it would have been rude not to. If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be? Nada. Marks out of 10? A solid 9. Would you meet again? Michael is lovely, but Cambridge is a long way away. … we have a small favour to ask.
