first_imgThe Springboks endured an awful 2016 as they suffered their first loss to Ireland at home and were thumped 41-13 and 57-15 by the All Blacks in their two Rugby Championship clashes.They also lost all three of their end-of-season tests in Europe as they ended the year with just four wins from 12 matches and slumped as low as seventh in the world rankings by this March.Coach Allister Coetzee, however, has overhauled the team personnel, playing style and culture this year and they are unbeaten in six tests with five wins and a draw before their clash with the world champions on Saturday.”It has been bloody challenging,” Coetzee said of the team’s transformation in 2017. “I am pleased that we have changed it. We made some tweaks — we are a team in transition.”The players enjoy the new environment and we have improved, but we’re not there yet. We need to prove ourselves against the world’s best… and Saturday will be a huge test for us.”I can only see on Saturday how good we are.”Coetzee made just three changes from the team that started in the 23-23 draw against the Wallabies with Ruan Dreyer making his second test appearance at tighthead prop after Coenie Oosthuizen broke his arm last week in Perth.Flanker Jaco Kriel was also sent home from Auckland after scans revealed a torn muscle in his shoulder and was replaced in the starting side by Jean-Luc du Preez, while lock Franco Mostert returns to partner captain Eben Etzebeth.All Blacks coach Steve Hansen had his own injury issues with winger Israel Dagg battling a serious knee problem, while prop Joe Moody was ruled out for the season after he dislocated his shoulder in the 39-22 win over the Pumas last week.Hansen has given the destructive scrummaging Kane Hames the opportunity for his first start – in just his third test – at loosehead prop instead of the more experienced Wyatt Crockett.”He’s very destructive,” Hansen said of the 29-year-old Hames, who has battled knee injuries that have stalled his professional career.”He has a great ability to get around the park too but his set piece play is what we like about him. That’s why he’s here.”Hansen added the Springboks of 2017 were a different side from last year and he expected a hard, physical contest prompting him to bring back loose forwards Liam Squire and Sam Cane and lock Sam Whitelock in an effort to dominate the collision and gain line.”We are definitely facing a different team,” he said.”They’re full of confidence. That comes from winning. I think confidence is not something you can buy or bottle, if you have got it that’s invaluable.”last_img read more

first_imgOne of the best things about Minecraft and other games like it is that you can make just about anything. As long as you can find a way to mine or make it, you can build it, and this time-lapse proves the point.One group of Minecraft players decided to build a massive train station complex inspired by New York City’s Penn Station, and even though it was a massive undertaking, they did it.The train station project took three days and an entire server full of Minecraft players to build. While the players who uploaded the video mention that Penn Station architecturally inspired it, it looks very much like the actual terminal. The final product has four expansive courtyards and a main concourse that’s analogous to where the shops, ticketing counters, and eateries are in the real station.Of course, the station wouldn’t be a real version of Penn Station without the huge underground space where the trains pull in and depart, complete with individually labeled tracks and an overhead walkway where passengers can move to between tracks without crossing them.The entire project is impressive on its own, but watching the time-lapse video gives you a real sense of how much work the whole project must have been. You see players zooming all over the map building the foundation, digging the underground tracks, building the walls, and even arranging the stands and decorations along the concourse so everything looks just right.Even though it took all of three days to complete, we don’t have a good idea of how many people were involved in its making, and if the video is any indication, players were working on it all day and all night long.If you manage a Minecraft server of your own, you can download the textures used for this project over at the Minecraft forums, and support the players that did this.via YouTubelast_img read more
