Aviva Premiership One to Watch: Luther Burrell

first_imgRunning man: Northampton’s Luther Burrell has been breaking open defences with pace and power all seasonBy Katie FieldWho is the man of the moment?Luther Burrell, the 25-year-old Northampton centre who is hoping to secure a place in England’s matchday squad by playing the game of his life for his club against Saracens at Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday, 25 October (kick-off 3.15pm).Why is he in the spotlight?Burrell has been grabbing the headlines all season, shredding defences in the Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup to set up tries for his team-mates. He credits Northampton’s new assistant coach Alex King with helping him hit top form, although he had already impressed the club’s coaches last spring after joining from Sale in 2012.Slick and quick: Burrell showcases some of his handling skills for England against a Consur XV in ArgentinaHe toured with England last summer but didn’t get capped and has now been promoted from the Saxons squad to the Elite squad as injury cover. Burrell spent the first three days this week training with the November Test squad before being named in a group of ten players released back to their clubs to play this weekend.It doesn’t mean he is out of the frame for a Test cap and a big performance this weekend could just make all the difference.

It’s something I have always dreamed of. I hope I can put a marker down in this game [v Saracens] and try to push for a starting slot.“It was fantastic to get a starting spot with Saints towards the end of last season and I built on that over the summer and have been fairly consistent throughout this campaign so far.”Will he be whooping or weeping this weekend?Saracens haven’t lost yet in the Premiership this season but Northampton have suffered just the one defeat, which came in controversial circumstances at Gloucester. The Saints haven’t lost at Franklin’s Gardens in any competition this term and should manage a narrow victory against the table-toppers. Watch Burrell and Northampton take on Saracens at Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday, 25 October, kick-off 3.15pm.last_img read more

Required fields are marked * Monday, leaders of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) sent a letter to Airlines for America President Nicholas Calio calling for clearer guidance on racial profiling.The letter comes after a series of recent incidents on airlines where perceived or actual Muslim and Arab Americans were suspected of terrorism or asked to deplane without concrete evidence.Pasadena Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27), Chair of CAPAC, released the following statement:“We have been warning about the costs of xenophobic and racist rhetoric in our political conversations. And now, as many continue to preach suspicion of Muslims, we are increasingly seeing the effects. In just the past year alone, there have been at least eight reported cases of alleged discrimination targeting airlines passengers based on their perceived race or religion. Flying while Muslim is not a crime and our airlines industry should not act as though it is. I look forward to hearing back and working with Airlines for America to understand what procedures are in place to evaluate current threats and to ensure that no passenger is the unfair target of racial or religious profiling. As Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, I will continue to fight for policies that keep our skies safe and our passengers welcome.” Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
