They have been locked up in isolation with their partners and another friend during lockdown.“This was the last thing that any of them expected to happen.“The watches and jewellery were obviously worth many thousands of pounds.“But they also had a sentimental value and can’t be replaced in that sense.” The source said security at the house would be reinforced.Break-ins at the homes of mega-rich Premier League stars have become commonplace in recent years.Many players have been forced to seal off access and bolster camera networks.Security for high-profile footballers is now a small industry in itself with many of them protecting themselves with 24 hour guards and even trained dogs.Yet crime has plunged by more than a third in the capital during lockdown.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50’ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’PicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticThe house where Dele lives is close to the motorway network and the source said: “Unfortunately the robbers could have come from anywhere.

Hurricanes Super Rugby leaders after win

first_imgA table-topping Kiwi derby featured no shortage of highlights as the hosts ran out three tries-to-one winners tonight in Wellington, led by more scintillating attack from Ben Lam, Ngani Laumape and Beauden Barrett.The trio shared the tries, although Chiefs five-eighth Damian McKenzie and winger Solomon Alaimalo also continued their brilliant campaigns.Both teams were out to add to five-match winning streaks after losing their respective opening matches.The 2015 champion Hurricanes had too much class, allowing them to leapfrog the Lions and Crusaders, who had byes this week. They can’t be overtaken during the remainder of round nine.The Hurricanes continued to mix brutal defence with ambitious attack, which was on show in all three tries.Powerhouse winger Lam snapped up a Laumape offload and left three defenders in his wake on a 40m charge to the line.The clamour for Lam to be considered by All Blacks selectors only grew louder as the 26-year-old beat nine defenders for the match and ran for 120m.Those figures were bettered by opposite No 11 Alaimalo, who made five breaks and tallied 190m running metres.Up 10-6 at halftime, the Hurricanes snatched control with tries to inside backs Barrett and Laumape within five minutes of the restart.Barrett’s try was a trademark effort, scooping up a loose ball and using his pace to cover 50m faster than the cover defence.The All Blacks’ five-eighth followed up with a cross-kick which Laumape leapt over Anton Lienert-Brown to collect and score.The Chiefs threatened a comeback when flanker Lachlan Boshier scored but the final quarter was scoreless aside from a penalty after the siren from Hurricanes fullback Jordie Barrett.Both teams were stung by early injuries.Hurricanes flanker Sam Henwood departed after a head knock, while Chiefs prop Aidan Ross followed him soon after with what appeared to be a serious knee injury.Impressive No 8 Taleni Seu was also forced off as the Chiefs’ injury-ravaged campaign rolled on.last_img read more

SBW opens up about a return to league

first_imgWilliams is targeting next year’s Rugby Union World Cup with the All Blacks but his future beyond that is undecided.The dual international turns 34 next August and is weighing up ending an illustrious career spanning Australia, New Zealand, France, Japan, rugby league, rugby union and boxing.Williams became a pariah in the 13-man game after his walk-out on Canterbury in 2008 over a contract dispute.He returned to play a leading role in the Sydney Roosters’ 2013 NRL premiership victory, only to again return to union, where he won the 2015 World Cup and appeared in the 2016 Olympics.He’s eyeing his third World Cup next year but refuses to rule out a third stint in rugby league in 2020 and says opportunities to work with the Pacific community and in coaching will affect his decision.”I’m 34 next year. I’m just happy doing what I love doing,” Williams told Fox Sports.”I really want to affect my Pasifika people. With that comes responsibility.”I need more knowledge in that field, which I’m doing – I’m doing for my coaching papers.”God willing I make it through next year and I make that World Cup side.”Then after that, I have to keep the wife happy and then if I do play on, it’ll have to be at a place where I can still have a voice.”Williams returned to the Roosters for two years in 2013-14 after a handshake agreement with Roosters chairman Nick Politis, which was struck following his first exit from the NRL.In the past few years, there have been rumours Williams will end his career with the Tri-Colours.He refused to give anything away about his future on Sunday but said he regretted the way he turned his back on the Bulldogs, the club that gave him a start as a teenager.”I still stand by my decision to leave. Though as a young fella you’re a bit rash and you do things you probably regret,” Williams said.”I’m no different. I’m human, I make mistakes.”When it came to that decision to leave, although things weren’t going the right way off the field, I just felt like I was backed into a corner and that was all I could do.”Looking back now, if I was a lot more confident in myself as a man, I probably could have gone and spoken to the administration and told them, ‘Look, I’m going to leave if you don’t do what you guys promised me’.”last_img read more

Ben Barba to fight lifetime ban

first_imgThe fallen NRL star presented himself to Mackay police and was charged with two counts of public nuisance over an incident at the Townsville casino in January.The former Dally M Medallist will appear in Townsville Magistrates Court on March 22.Barba reportedly will not face domestic violence-related charges because his partner Ainslie Currie has not made a complaint.Barba was sacked by NRL club North Queensland without playing a game for the club last month over allegations he was violent towards Currie in the incident.The NRL gave Barba a lifetime ban after viewing CCTV footage of the incident.But Barba’s lawyer Campbell MacCallum claimed on Tuesday he would now attempt to have the ban overturned.”He’s expressed his desire to play football this year,” MacCallum told reporters.”He wants to explore his options in relation to challenging the NRL ban and hopefully play rugby league in some sort of capacity.”I don’t think he’d play NRL but certainly local football, and that’s going to help his focus.”He’s feeling the pressure of the media on him – he’s also feeling the pressure of not being able to play the game that he loves.”It’s certainly pretty distressing for himself and a trying time for his family.”Barba was charged a day after telling a television news crew he had “lost everything” and threatened to “hurt” the reporter.North Queensland coach Paul Green said Cowboys welfare officers would keep in touch with Barba.”Our welfare guys continue to stay in contact with Ben. The club will continue to support him however we can,” he said.Green was not as expansive when told Barba intended to fight the NRL ban.Asked if Barba should be allowed to play again, Green said: “It’s probably not for me to comment.”Besides the two charges, Barba was on Tuesday also banned by Queensland police from entering Townsville’s entertainment precinct for three months.After winning a premiership with Cronulla in 2016, the star fullback copped a 12 game NRL ban for testing positive to cocaine for a second time.He left for stints in French rugby union and the English Super League before being offered a lifeline by the Cowboys, only to be sacked on February 1 over the casino incident.last_img read more
