Shaun Perry – CA Brive, Bristol and England

first_imgShaun PerryWhen Shaun Perry was at Bristol, he took half and hour out to talk to Rugby World about cooking, phobias, early memories and what its like to wear an England shirt.RUGBY WORLD: So how are you finding life in the England squad?SHAUN PERRY: It’s going really well. It was a bit overwhelming coming into training with guys like Charlie Hodgson, Martin Corry and Lewis Moody – they’ve got so many caps between them. But I’m enjoying it. They’re a good bunch of lads and I get on really well with them all.RW: Do you get any stick from the lads at Bristol about your rise into the England squad?SP: Yeah, it’s mainly from Ronnie [Mark Regan]. Every time I wear any England gear, he’s like, ‘Look at you with your rose!’ I’ve got a bit of stick from Dave Hilton as well, and Matt Salter – you wouldn’t expect it from him, would you?Jokers, Early morning gym sessions, Flatmate… RW: So who are the jokers at Bristol?SP: Gareth Llewellyn likes a joke, and Ronnie and Salts. They do things like using your towel or hiding your boots or putting things in your shoes – Dan Ward-Smith is a pain in the arse for that. We don’t really play serious practical jokes, but I heard this story about someone at another club cementing two garden gnomes in another player’s drive so they couldn’t get their car out in the morning!RW: What’s the best thing about being a professional rugby player?SP: Just being able to do something I enjoy doing. Rugby was always a hobby for me and now it’s my job.RW: And the worst?SP: Probably having to get up really early to go to the gym for a weights session. You have to get up at 6.45am, have your breakfast, then be there by 8am. Doing a full-body then isn’t great – you’re not really awake!RW: Bristol started pre-season training way back in June, but the early start seems to have paid off?SP: Yeah, it has. We managed to get three solid weeks of fitness training done and we started the season really well. We won’t get carried away with ourselves, though. We finished 11th in the Premiership last year and the aim is to finish higher than that this season.RW: You share a house with Bristol No 8 Dan Ward-Smith. So, what’s a normal night like round at yours?SP: We just like to chill out. We take it in turns to cook and whoever’s cooking does everything – buys the stuff, cooks it and washes up. So the other person can just do nothing – watch TV or do whatever. It works really well. My speciality is Cantonese chicken – and it’s quite easy! LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Leggings, Arachnophobia and an embarressing trip to Paris…RW: The latest fashion craze among rugby players appears to be leggings. Do you wear them?SP: Yeah, they’re comfy! Admittedly, you do look a bit of an idiot if you’re walking down the street after training with your leggings and shorts on. You do get a few dodgy looks off people.RW: Do you have any phobias?SP: I’m not keen on spiders, or heights. I’m crap at heights. I went to Paris with my missus, Kimberley, and we were going to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. You get a lift that takes you halfway up, then you have to walk round the edge and get another lift to the top. I got halfway up and couldn’t go any further. I had to get the lift back down!RW: What’s your earliest memory?SP: Oh, I don’t know – playing football for my school when I was eight. I get knocked on the head every week so I can’t remember much!RW: When did you last laugh?SP: Probably about an hour ago. I was playing table tennis with Mark Cueto and he’s rubbish!Keep up to date on Shauns movements, check out his profile at CA Brive Check out Shaun’s try against New Zealand on his international debut for England…Learn more about Shaun’s teammates at England…Jonny Wilkinsoncenter_img Dylan Hartley James Haskelllast_img read more

Get moving! 6 ways to add steps to your day

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter If you spend a large portion of your day sitting, you’re not alone.Inactivity is one of the key factors contributing to the nation’s high rate of obesity and its related health effects. Research shows 50 to 70 percent of people spend six or more hours a day sitting, and 20 to 35 percent spend four or more hours a day watching TV.This type of inactivity – or ‘sitting disease’ – can lead to serious health conditions. For example, nearly 35 percent of U.S. adults are obese, and obesity-related conditions including heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer are among the leading causes of preventable death. The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. is $147 billion. Annual medical spending on an obese patient is estimated to be $1,429 higher than it is for a person of normal weight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).While those figures are discouraging, there is one easy solution that could have a profound impact.Walking is one of the simplest, least expensive and most effective ways individuals can improve their health. It does not require any special skills, expensive equipment or a gym membership.Below are six easy ways to incorporate more walking into your day:1. Take a walk with a coworker at lunchtime or schedule a walking meeting.2. Schedule a walk with the family after dinner.3. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.4. Walk to see a colleague rather than call or e-mail.5. Get off the bus or train one stop early on your way to work.6. Start or join a walking or hiking group.By getting just 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, such as a brisk walk, at least five times a week, you could realize significant health benefits. Walking has been shown to lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, hypertension and Type 2 diabetes, improve muscle, bone and joint health, maintain a healthy weight, lead to better sleep and provide a mental boost.That’s why the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association encourages individuals, groups and whole communities to take steps towards a healthier lifestyle through its WalkingWorks® program. WalkingWorks, now in its 10th year, was developed in partnership with the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports to help Americans live healthier lives and reduce unnecessary medical costs. Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies across the country also host annual National [email protected] day events as a way to promote healthy habits by incorporating walking into a busy work day.So don’t just sit there and let that warm weather go to waste. Take steps to a better you, and see how walking does work!*Before beginning any weight loss or nutritional program or new exercise regime, consult with your doctor or healthcare provider.For more information on the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and its member companies, please visit www.BCBS.com.

A single Bench of Justice Moushumi Bhattacharya recalled the order passed by her even after assurance by parties that they had no objection to the judgment being delivered by the Court. She found that releasing the matter was the best and only course of action since she had appeared for one party in relation to the same trademark on which the the party claimed exclusivity in present proceedings. “An undertaking given by a litigant to a Court with any form of assurance may be construed in a totally different light at a subsequent stage of the proceedings depending on the twists and turns of the litigation itself. It is also important to bear in mind that a matter should be released by a Court on the call of conscience of the Judge who is to decide and not on any assurance of the parties before the Court” – Justice Moushumi Bhattacharya observed. According to Justice Bhattacharya, preserving the purity of the process of dissemination of justice is a collective responsibility which rests both on the Court and counsels, advocates-on-record and instructing attorneys who act as officers of the Court on behalf of the parties. Justice Bhattacharya observed that a litigant receiving a judgment must be convinced, for all times to come, that the judgment was delivered solely on the applicable law and facts relevant to the matter and not on any other considerations. A litigant can never be under the impression that it can control or influence the outcome of an adjudication by factors unconnected to the litigation and least of all by a professional connection which a Court may have to the matter. Justice Bhattacharya , while going through the documents filed by the parties had found two orders from 2005 and 2006 which recorded her appearance and after clarification from the from plaintiff’s counsel got to know that the appearance was indeed hers. The Court has observed that it is unfortunate that these two orders were found before the Court was to deliver its judgement and it is shocking that none of the two orders were pointed out to by counsel before despite the matter being heard on several occasions. “Since the parties cannot be saddled with the judgment in the given facts, the instant matter, though is a case of Love’s Labour’s Lost, is blessed with the silver lining that none of the parties before this Court will ever question the basis of the Court’s reasoning. The perception that parties have been treated fairly is as much a part of the justice dissemination process as the steps taken by the Court to ensure fairness” – the Bench remarked. Justice Bhattacharya therefore stated that since the petition for interim relief contained averments in relation to the proceedings where the two orders were passed and considering the fact that her appearance in respect of the plaintiff’s trademark was not brought to her notice, the order of injunction has to be recalled. The Court has also clarified that as the order of injunction has continued from 8th October, 2020, the effect of this order to the extent of the recalling part, will remain in abeyance for a period of seven days to enable the plaintiffs to apply for appropriate orders. In the present case, the Court was hearing applications filed in respect of an ex parte ad-interim order passed by the High Court on 8th October, 2020 restraining the defendant from selling or distributing its goods under the mark ‘Duro Touch’ or any other mark deceptively similar to the plaintiffs’ trademark ‘Duroply’. The defendant had then sought that the ex parte ad-interim order of injunction be vacated and order was reserved for judgment on 15th January, 2021. Along with the interim order, the order reserving the judgement in the case has also been cancelled.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
