Glad to see the Welsh Rugby Union assisting those injured in the game and by recent flooding.



Quote:
The Welsh Rugby Union had 60 buckets for fans to make donations to those affected by the floods, and has pledged £100,000 to support clubs.
Staff have volunteered to help with the clear-up operation across the country.
The union is also taking steps to help with equipment lost in the flooding, as well as providing specialist expertise with recovering and maintaining damaged pitches.
Martyn Phillips, group chief executive of the Welsh Rugby Union, speaking ahead of the match, said: “These are exceptional circumstances and we have therefore decided to allocate dedicated funds and resources to help out rugby clubs in need in communities throughout the country.
“There is money put aside for emergencies such as these and we will take great care to ensure that we target both money and resources in the right areas so that we are helping those who need it most.”
In the article above, William also shares that the Cambridge children have been joining in for the lambing season up in Norfolk where they spent their half-term break this week.

I read that ...that’s just the most precious thing. He said that Charlotte was reluctant, but George just went right on in, lol

Prince William meets Peter Crouch: Duke of Cambridge on lockdown, Twitter and mental health

The podcast if anyone interested to listen:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08m3ckl

Some highlight can be read in below article:
https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/53531001

Some (my) selected highlight:
Quote:
As president of the Football Association, the Duke of Cambridge has been keen to use his role to start conversations around mental health, including helping to rename the 2020 FA Cup final the Heads Up FA Cup final.
(...)
His lockdown experience sounds quite relatable
What are among the things a royal worries about during lockdown? Home-schooling and keeping young kids entertained, apparently.

"I found it pretty testing, trying to keep the children engaged and interested in some sort of work," he says. "It's been an interesting few months.

"I've learned my patience is a lot shorter than I thought it was! That's probably the biggest eye-opener for me, and my wife has super patience."

He goes on to admit he's struggled with year two maths. Comforting.
(...)
He wears shin pads for six-a-side
After being put on the spot, William says he's the only person in his team who wears shin pads.

There is a good reason.

"In school, I basically got targeted the whole time," says William, who says he usually plays at right-back.

Apparently, aged 15, he once asked a police officer with him to use a laser pen and 'red dot' one of the opposition players.

"I kept saying to him, 'see, he's following you'," William laughed: "It put him off for about 10 minutes!"
(...)
He bought binoculars as a present for Kate
When the team talked about bad presents they had given their wives, William admitted he once bought the Duchess of Cambridge a pair binoculars, despite her not being a keen birdwatcher.

"That was early on in the courtship. I think that sealed the deal," he jokes.

"I even tried convincing myself by saying: 'These are amazing, look how far you can see.'"

Asked about Kate's reaction to the gift, he said: "Kate opened them and said: 'But they're binoculars, what's going on?''"

He's not allowed to tweet from the official @KensingtonRoyal account
"They deliberately keep me away from that. When Liverpool won that amazing Champions League semi-final against Barcelona [in May 2019], I grabbed hold of the Twitter thing and just posted.

"It was an amazing match, I was blown away by it. It was one of the best games of football I've ever seen. I got completely out of control. I was like: 'Tweet that! Get it out!'

"And nearly every Villa match we've won - which isn't many this season - I've been trying to get hold of it, but they keep it away from me now."

Other than mental health, it full of football talk, so it may be slightly difficult to follow if you're not familiar with football, especially EPL (English Premier League), some bits that may help:

- William was asked what if George got really good at football, will he let him play for Villa (his favourite team). He answered of course, but then when he was asked what if he supported Birmingham, he deflected it well. Note: Birmingham City is Aston Villa's rival team, their match is called Second City Derby or Birmingham Derby.

- About sacking Gareth comment, it refers to Gareth Southgate, the current England National team manager who has brought England to World Cup semi final two years ago. (Trivia: he played for Aston Villa from 1995 to 2001).

- William mentioned about Frank and Chelsea, Frank Lampard is former Chelsea player and the current manager (just to clarify, manager also means head coach).

- There's a talk about Peter Crouch and Aston Villa. Crouch played for Villa in the past and as he said, he was mostly benched when he was loaned to Norwich City.

- There's a mention about William watching Blackpool game with his RAF mates for a stag do (not his). Blackpool is a football team, they're in lower division this season.

The George's bit can be read here:

I thought it was a lovely interview. I was also stressed out all last Sunday, over the Champions League places in my case, and it was quite nice to hear William say that he was too!

Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge, President of the Football Association, has sent out a series of tweets condemning racism in the sport following an avalanche of abuse towards black players on social media.
Posting from the Kensington Palace Twitter account, Prince William wrote: “Racist abuse – whether on the pitch, in the stands, or on social media – is despicable and it must stop now.
“We all have a responsibility to create an environment where such abuse is not tolerated, and those who choose to spread hate and division are held accountable for their actions. That responsibility extends to the platforms where so much of this activity now takes place.
“I commend all those players, supporters, clubs and organisations who continue to call out and condemn this abuse in the strongest terms. – W”
Prince William has been President of the FA, the governing body of English football, since May 2006.


In that time, he has constantly spoken out against racism and has backed high profile anti-discrimination campaigns such as Kick It Out.

Prince William has vowed “enough is enough” as he plans to take on racist thugs who abuse footy players.
The Duke of Cambridge called an emergency meeting with figureheads and campaigners to devise plans on how a “multi agency partnership” can work together to stamp out sickening racism in football.
In his role as President of the Football Association, William urged the need for a “root and branch” assessment of how players and fans can deal with vile racists, after an explosion in “despicable” abuse aimed at the game’s biggest stars.
Aston Villa fanatic William believes more pressure needs to be put on the big tech giants to act instead of turning a blind eye.
William on Tuesday summoned Mark Bullingham, CEO of the FA, to discuss plans for an inquiry into the outbreak of racism in recent years, often through social media channels.

There've been several very nasty incidents recently. The FA and the clubs have condemned it, and the police have been called in, but there's not much anyone can do if the person behind the social media accounts posting the abuse can't be identified. Maybe they'll listen if Prince William and other big names all keep on at them.

Rugby League chiefs are said to be keen for Prince William to take over his brother’s role as the royal face of the sport. It comes after Prince Harry was stripped of his royal duties when he and his wife Meghan Markle stepped away from the family to pursue a more independent life. That means the Duke of Sussex will no longer be the patron of the Rugby Football League (RFL) and Rugby Football Union (RFU). The patronages have returned to the Queen temporarily but are set to be redistributed to other working royals – and William is thought to be favourite for the role. Rugby league’s bosses are hopeful for a big name to put the sport in the limelight ahead of this autumn’s World Cup, which is being hosted by the north of England from October. The Telegraph reports that the RFL is hoping that William will be given the role. A source close to senior figures at the RFL told the paper: ‘The World Cup is going to take place in the north of England, which is very significant at this time and very important for the royal household to acknowledge and get behind, particularly as it will be happening in many towns where major events are not usually held, such as St Helens, Doncaster and Hull. ‘The Duke of Sussex was a high profile figure who embraced the World Cup and we hope the next appointment will be a continuation of that.’

William would be a good fit for the Rugby League but not for England Rugby as he already is patron of Welsh Rugby.
