BEN Fogle was impressed with the pace of Rugby League when he watched a game at Langtree Park earlier in the season.The TV personality and Typhoo ambassador spoke of how much he enjoyed it when he returned to the club to take part in kicking and tea tasting challenges recently.He was at Langtree Park asSaints announced the extension of their partnership with the brand.“It’s important Typhoo support a club like this,” he said. “I could imagine my kids coming here and watching these great rugby league players. It would inspire them onto the pitch and give them dreams and aspirations to follow.“I was lucky enough to come here earlier in the season and watch a match. Over the last year or two I have got to know the club, meet the players, and I am now beginning to understand the finer points of League. It is really fast, the pace is great.“My school was union based and I played to not a great level… I’m a wannabe sports person in an untoned body!”He continued: “There is a great family feel to the game and it very much felt like a club with great local support. League in general across the country is an untapped sport I think.“Perhaps this is the year for it to change with the World Cup. There will be a lot more focus on League later in the year and maybe more people will want to play it and it will start to grow.”
SAINTS have won the League Leaders Shield for the first time since 2008.They topped the table after 27 regular rounds and were confirmed as winners following Catalan’s 28-6 victory over Castleford this evening.Congratulations go to Nathan Brown and the first team squad who have stuck together often in times of adversity to be the League’s most consistent team.Special mention also the fans that have also backed the club this year!The Shield also means Saints are guaranteed a place in the World Club Series in 2015.Club Captain Paul Wellens said: “We are obviously delighted to secure the league leaders shield despite winning it in unfamiliar circumstances.“It’s great reward for our group of players, a lot of whom haven’t had the experience of winning a trophy and we hope it can be the catalyst for many more moving forward. “I would personally like to thank our fantastic supporters who’ve been right behind us throughout the year, and that great support was no more evident than at Huddersfield on Friday.“We’ve now turned our attention to the play offs and look forward to the challenges ahead whilst knowing we can rely on our fans to get behind us on the way. “Come on you Saints.”
JAMES Roby masterminded an outstanding Saints performance as they hammered Castleford 41-0.He was at his imperious best to score a brace and create several more to leave Nathan Brown’s men just 80 minutes from Old Trafford.Jordan Turner was magnificent in the centre of the park too and the defence tenacious whenever their line was threatened.It was an attitude that saw Saints lead 13-0 at the end of the first half.And in the second they simply turned the screw and ran in five more tries to underline their total dominance.Turner, Adam Swift and Tommy Makinson – on his 100th appearance for the club – all crossing before Kyle Amor and Mose Masoe bulldozed over.Most talk during the week centred around if the League Leaders could prove their Old Trafford credentials.They readjusted their line-up to move Mark Flanagan to scrum half and Gary Wheeler to centre.Josh Jones missed out; Alex Walmsley was suspended and that allowed Greg Richards and Luke Thompson to return.Saints were presented with the League Leaders Shield before kick off and made a solid start backed by a vociferous crowd.Both sides kicked well and playing out their sets – Saints just edging the territorial possession early doors.15 minutes in a mistake allowed Willie Manu to open up the defence but the home side just couldn’t make it pay.Saints continued to come though and a set right on Castleford’s line after a great Hohaia kick gave them a real opportunity.And they didn’t disappoint, Roby scampering from close in to get Brown’s men on their way.Percival with the extras.Backed the superb kicking of Mark Flanagan and Jordan Turner Saints continued to push home their advantage and it was no surprise when James Roby opened up Castleford once more.Omitted from the Dream Team this week, he sidestepped twice to twist and turn his way to the try-line.Saints should have been further ahead on the half hour mark as Mark Percival – after a superb break – put Tommy Makinson over in the corner.But he was called back for a forward pass that simply never was.Castleford forced Saints to drop out on 37 minutes but two minutes later Jordan Turner emphasised Saints’ dominance with a drop goal right off the training ground.Lance Hohaia went close early in the second half and on their next attack they went further ahead…. and it was typical Saints.They kept the ball alive in the middle of the park and Roby combined with Soliola to catch Turner on a great line for his ninth of the season.Roby almost got his third on around 55 minutes and then Adam Swift picked off a loose ball and went fully 70 metres to increase Castleford’s woe.Michael Shenton was sinbinned on 65 minutes for impeding Paul Wellens on his way for a certain try and with space on the right Makinson crossed for his 28th of the year.Kyle Amor showed massive strength to get Saints’ sixth of the night with around 10 minutes to go and Mose Masoe produced a carbon copy five minutes later to leave the fans in raptures.Saints will choose their opponents in next Friday’s ClubCall.Match Summary:Saints: Tries: Roby (2), Turner, Swift, Makinson, Amor, MasoeGoals: Percival (6 from 7)Drop: TurnerTigers:Tries:Goals:Penalties: Saints: 7Tigers: 5HT: 13-0FT: 41-0REF: James ChildATT: TBCTeams:Saints: 17.

It was underweight. It was a little anemic,” Aquarium Curator, Julie Johnson said. “And so over the last few months we’ve been fattening it up, feeding it lots of food. It’s received some medication, some fluids, but mostly putting the weight back on.”Related Article: Man gets prison time for smuggling turtles in candy wrappersThe aquarium’s Animal Care Team helped the big girl out of a truck around 10:00 a.m. and on to the beach. The turtle slowly made her way down to the water and even stopped a few times to check out the crowd.This sea turtle did not get named during rehabilitation, but those who helped her get back on her fins are more than happy she is back where she belongs.“Seeing as their populations are in decline, it’s a major thing to get these animals back into the water especially when you have females that could be of possible breeding age,” Aquarist, Stacey Murray said. “So by, again, just getting this one healthy and getting her back into her environment hopefully we can get these populations moving along in future generations.”Loggerhead sea turtles are a threatened species in North Carolina and endangered in other states. Experts say there are a few things you can do to help the threatened species.“Clean up after themselves if they’re on the beach,” Johnson said. “Not to leave debris or plastics and to fill in any holes that they make in the beach. You know, you don’t think about that but if you dig a big hole a turtle could get stuck in it whether it’s an adult turtle or a hatchling and not be able to get back out to the ocean.”Many say today’s release was an experience they will never forget.“You could almost feel it, just the turtle sensing the ocean and wanting to get back to its home,” Simmons said.Johnson said the number of sea turtles they rehabilitate varies each year. They hope today’s release made a difference.
For others, like Eric Dawson, it can be a bit of a hassle.“We were down earlier in the week and we had a little bit of trouble parking, Eric Dawson said. “So we just kept riding around until a spot opened up.”Oak Island Mayor Cin Brochure says the town is in the process of making a proposal to see what costs would be to put in mobile pay for parking spaces. Some people don’t mind paying, while others don’t like the idea.Related Article: Near drowning at Oak Island, man airlifted to hospital“We don’t know if it’s safe to park here or if you can park here if you need a permit, Dawson said. “You don’t need a permit so if it’s a parking lot and we have to pay, we know we’re safe and we would definitely pay,” Dawson said.“That’s one of the nice draws to come to this beach, Rash said. “Because you can find a parking space and you’re not having to pay for it because you know we’re paying for other things at Oak Island. So i don’t think that’s a great idea. I don’t see it as a hectic situation,” Rash said.If the change ends up going through there will be no meters and people will pay online for parking.This proposal still has a long way to go, but if it all goes through residents who use the online application can be exempt from paying the parking fee. OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — One big perk of going to the beach at Oak island is free parking. Many people take full advantage of it, but could it become a thing of the past? If the Town of Oak Island has its way, paid parking could be in beach town’s future. For some, like Angie Rash, parking in Oak Island is effortless.“It’s been a really convenient experience, Angie Rash said. “There are multiple lots where you can park for free and it’s easy beach access and it’s one of the reasons why we come down to Oak Island.”- Advertisement –

Brunswick County Board of Commissioners Chairman Frank Williams says he is aware of the complaints.The North Brunswick High School shelter will be shut down and the other shelters will be improved.“One of the things they’re doing is putting in some showers, some sort of a shower facility at the shelters that will remain open, because I think that would probably be in everyone’s best interest,” Williams said. “I certainly felt better when I was able to get a shower after the storm. That’s one thing, trying to make sure we get them to shelters that have better power. We’ve been having some power issues at this one I believe.”Related Article: Wilmington Chamber organizes first responders appreciation weekWilliams says everyone at the North Brunswick shelter will be transported to South or West Brunswick.
