Mark Pullen’s All-New Rugby League Blog - post 1

Mark Pullen RSS / 11.02.2011. u 10:31

The 2011 season is fast approaching for the teams of the Serbian RFL, with kick-off scheduled for the weekend of 19th-20th March. Competition is set to be tougher than ever this year, with a number of teams having strengthened their squads in the off-season, in the hope of toppling the mighty Dorćol.

This year will also prove an exciting challenge for the Serbia national team, with a calendar of eight internationals culminating in October when they take on Italy, Lebanon and Russia to vie for the final spot at the 2013 RL World Cup.

At Red Star it’s been a tough pre-season

Dorćolski kej * Ušće * Savsko jezero * Ada Huja * Zemunski kej

Kao što sam više puta već pisao (a jedan od tih blogova ima preko 40.000 čitanja, što će za mene ostati večita zagonetka), zima u Beogradu pruža odlične mogućnosti za posmatranje ptica. Tada se na rekama okuplja ne samo najviše ptica (jedinki) – preko 20.000 gnjuraca i vranaca, labudova, pataka i liski, te još toliko galebova koji su manje upadljivi jer se hrane na deponiji u Vinči, odakle predveče lete ka više desetina kilometara udljenim noćilištima; već i najviše vrsta – ukupno 35 vrsta vodenih staništa, koje se u najvećem broju okupljaju na Dunavu kod Velikog Ratnog ostrva, Ovčanske i Pančevačkih ada, kod Ade Ciganlije i na ribnjaku Mika Alas. Tih 50 km toka reka usred grada čini međunarodno IBA područje Ušće Save u Dunav, gde je do sada zabeleženo oko 210 vrsta ptica.

“Savska oaza” vs. savska oaza

Beograd dobio novo zaštićeno područje

"Svako je dužan da čuva i poboljšava životnu sredinu," kaže član 74. Ustava Srbije. Ustav, međutim, ne definiše pobliže šta je to poboljšavanje, pošto Zakonodavac zastupa, valjda, gledište da svaki građanin to već zna. I antički mislioci zastupali su slično gledište, da su ljudi tu da prirodu urede i poboljšaju,

 

The Big Year je severnoamerički ptičarski triatlon: unutar vremenskog (kalendarska godina) i prostornog ograničenja (kontinent), cilj je videti što više ptica i oboriti prethodni rekord. 1998 su tri takmičara napravili pauzu u svojim životima direktora korporacije, građevinca i programera, i upustili se u trku s kraja na kraj Amerike, od flaminga na Floridi do severnih sova na Aljasci.

Union blues

Mark Pullen RSS / 15.05.2012. u 11:40

Growing up in east Hull, rugby union was always something alien, but also something distant. Indeed, I think it was only when a PE teacher at Andrew Marvel High revealed that he played union for one of the village teams around Hull that I realised the sport even existed in my home county. Here in Serbia, however, the union is like a wasp feeding on the sweet league.

My first run-in with its loyalists came in the summer of 2011 when I got a phone call from a guy I hardly knew who used to play for the team: "Mark, some guys will turn up at your training session tonight. They're good guys and they want to form a Red Star rugby union club. Please be nice to them."

Myth busting rugby league style

Mark Pullen RSS / 23.04.2012. u 00:10

Today saw a great step taken towards bridging the gap between the Red Star rebel alliance and the Dorcolian empire - or at least overcoming the myth of Dorcol's invincibility (cue Imperial March).

Yes Red Star lost 46-16 (almost mirroring Hull KR's result over London this afternoon), but that's a lot better than the 106-6 thrashing they gave us last time out. In fact, that's probably Dorcol's smallest winning margin in any domestic battle since 2009.

I think our work on trying to teach the players about the bigger picture has paid dividends. They are now not only more aware

Brian je zaspao

albicilla RSS / 17.01.2009. u 22:48

Brian Stoneman je bio moj prijatelj i vrhunski ptičar. Odrastao u londonskom East Endu, govorio je teško razumljivim kokni akcentom. Školu je napustio sa 16 i zaposlio se u fabrici, koja će mu kasnije doći glave. Kada se sa oko 50 godina penzionisao, lekari su mu zbog azbesta u plućima davali svega dve godine života. Ipak, Brian se preselio u Tursku, gde je kupio nedovršenu

...tamo gde je bilo srce stajaće sunce
i neće biti u ljudskom govoru takvih reči
kojih će se pesma odreći
poeziju će svi pisati
istina će prisustvovati u svim rečima
na mestima gde je pesma najlepša
onaj koji je prvi zapevao povući će se
prepuštajući pesmu drugima
ja prihvatam veliku misao budućih poetika:
jedan nesrećan čovek ne može biti pesnik
ja primam na sebe osudu propevale gomile:

KO NE UME DA SLUŠA PESMU SLUŠAĆE OLUJU ...

Red Star sacrifice style for strength

Mark Pullen RSS / 30.04.2012. u 22:38

Red Star RLC made it two wins from three in the Serbian rugby league this weekend with a resounding victory over a young Radnicki Nova Pazova outfit, though the final score line of 58-28 clearly flattered a seemingly rudderless Red Star team, who let physical superiority get in the way of carefully laid plans and spoiled the chance to play to a pattern that proved successful in patches against the top team in town.

The ying and yang of a rugby team is represented by the forwards and the backs, with the halves or pivots, generally numbers 6, 7 and 9 (stand-off, scrum-half, hooker) acting as the conductors of the team.
