Six Nations under threat Rugby officials gathered in the French capital to consider if more alterations are needed to the calendar for the final two rounds of the Six Nations Championship.The March 7 game between Ireland and Italy in Dublin has already been postponed but officials determined that no further changes were needed — at least for now.”So far, apart from the Ireland v Italy match for our senior men’s event, all matches are OK to take place but governments might decide otherwise and we need to be prepared for any eventuality,” said a spokeswoman.The UAE Tour, an early season cycling warm-up that featured four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, was cut short last week after a coronavirus scare.Looking ahead, concerns are deepening over this year’s main sports event, the Tokyo Olympics, which is due to begin on July 24.Hundreds of thousands of spectators, athletes and officials will converge on Japan for the Games.International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said last week his organization was “fully committed” to holding the Games in Tokyo as planned despite the widening coronavirus outbreak.Ominously, the decision will depend on factors over which Olympic officials exert no control, and sports federations are already wringing their hands over disruption and forced cancellation of qualifying events for the global showpiece. Sport is no exception.In Italy, the European country with the highest number of deaths at 52, the outbreak wreaked havoc with Serie A football matches at the weekend.Six games were postponed, including the clash between defending champions Juventus and title rivals Inter Milan in Turin, originally scheduled to be the showpiece match on Sunday evening.The Italian government has signed a decree that stops sporting activity in the northern regions that have been worst hit by the virus until March 8, unless it is held behind closed doors.That decision means another five matches next week can only go ahead if played in empty stadiums.The Italian league has called an emergency meeting for Wednesday in which discussions will be held on how to manage the fixture chaos.The International Ski Federation (FIS) has also said that it will decide on Friday whether or not the alpine skiing World Cup finals scheduled for later this month in Cortina d’Ampezzo, a host venue for the 2026 Winter Olympics, will go ahead.Football in Asia has been massively disrupted, with the start of Japan’s J-League postponed till mid-March and a hugely rearranged fixture list for the continental competitions.On Monday, the Swiss football league also announced that its top two divisions had been suspended until March 23. Topics : The coronavirus is disrupting sport around the world with the MotoGP races in Qatar and Thailand postponed, a host of football matches put off to a later date and increasing concerns surrounding the Tokyo Olympics later this year.The virus has already cast a long shadow over the start of the MotoGP season with this Sunday’s curtain raising Qatar Grand Prix called off, followed by the March 22 race in Thailand.”I don’t say it’s cancelled, I just say it is postponed until time allows us to do [the event],” Anutin Charnvirakul, chairman of the Thailand MotoGP organizing committee, told AFP. One of the early races in the Formula One season, the Shanghai Grand Prix on April 19, has already been postponed although organizers say the season-opening race in Australia on March 15 will go ahead as planned.Olympic chiefs are meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday in Lausanne to discuss the impact of the virus on preparations for the summer Games in Tokyo, and to address the unthinkable — scrapping world sports’ global showpiece for the first time in peace time.Other events are under immediate threat. The remaining matches in the 2020 Six Nations rugby union tournament were at risk but an emergency meeting of the organizers in Paris on Monday made no immediate changes to the calendar.The virus has killed more than 3,000 people worldwide, mainly in China, and its effects are being felt across the global economy.
Three militants were killed during the initial attack and gunbattle overnight, while at least 21 civilians and members of security forces died in the fighting, and 43 were wounded, Attaullah Khugyani, a spokesman for the governor said.Police were forced to divert manpower to recapture escaped prisoners amid the chaos, and by noon on Monday around 1,000 had been caught, Qaderi said, without elaborating on how many were still at large.Afghan special forces arrived to support police, according to officials, and civilians were being evacuated from areas surrounding the prison, where Taliban and IS prisoners were being held along with ordinary criminals.Meanwhile the city was in lockdown. “The whole city of Jalalabad is under curfew, shops are closed,” Qaderi said. “Jalalabad is completely empty.”IS claimed responsibility for the attack, which came a day after the Afghan intelligence agency said special forces had killed a senior commander of the group near Jalalabad, the provincial capital of Nangarhar.Some 130 kilometers east of Kabul, Jalalabad lies on the highway leading to the Khyber Pass and the Pakistani city of Peshawar.A United Nations report last month estimated there are around 2,200 IS members in Afghanistan, and that while the group is in territorial retreat and its leadership has been depleted, it remains capable of carrying out high-profile attacks. A gunbattle between Islamic State fighters and Afghan security forces raged at a prison in the eastern city of Jalalabad on Monday, with at least 24 people killed after the militants’ overnight assault led to a mass jailbreak.The attack began on Sunday evening with car bomb detonated at the entrance to the prison, and there were numerous other blasts heard as the IS gunmen opened fire on security guards.Some 30 militants involved in the attack on the prison, where some 2,000 prisoners were held, according to Sohrab Qaderi, a lawmaker in the capital of Nangarhar province.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “It’s really nothing big,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.The Clippers had Griffin sit out a game earlier this season for rest, part of a season-long plan to keep players fresh after the Clippers invested heavily into biomedical technologies this past summer.“We’re just not going to take any chances with anyone. It’s not that big of a deal,” Rivers said. “We just feel like it’s a long season. We did that last year, to be honest. But now we have even more data to do it. We were doing it without (data), so, you know, there are going to be nights where guys aren’t happy about not playing, and that’s really good, when you think about it. “But this is the smart thing to do.”Without Blake Griffin, New Orleans’ Anthony Davis was all set to have a monster game against the Clippers — except he wasn’t playing either. LOS ANGELES >> “No big deal” turned into “No Blake Griffin.”The Clippers, who called Griffin’s sore right knee “no big deal” on Friday, found themselves without their leading scorer on Saturday, as the injury kept Griffin from playing against the New Orleans Pelicans.The seriousness, or lack thereof, of Griffin’s sore right knee isn’t causing anyone much worry, though.Griffin didn’t receive a MRI on the sore right knee and said he expects to be back on Monday against Portland. Davis, who is averaging a NBA-most 38.1 minutes per game, got Saturday off with the Pelicans playing three games in four days.“I just think he wants to play,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said. “He knows he’s put in a lot of minutes, but he wants to be out there. And, I just think, as a coach, you have to make decisions sometimes. I just think you have to protect him from himself. He wants to be out there. He’d play 48 minutes tonight if we wanted him to.”But even with Griffin out, Gentry didn’t want him to.“That was a non factor,” Gentry said. “…He needs rest. It didn’t matter who we were playing tonight.”Technically not a problemThe Clippers have committed 16 technical fouls this season – the same number as the Golden State Warriors. And, Rivers doesn’t have an issue with the griping; he has issues with how the griping can keep the Clippers from doing what they’re supposed to be doing.“I don’t mind the complaining, I just want the playing. That’s one thing I’ve always said, you can complain all you want as long as you keep playing,” Rivers said. “I don’t want to get to a point where we’re complaining and not playing. That’s where I think if we can improve, that would be the area. I think it’s hard to do all that. Some teams do it. Like I always say, Golden State, I talk about them, they’re always right next to us in techs, but they tend to keep playing. “So we have to do that, too.”Quick hitsRaymond Felton missed his second-straight game due to the death of his grandmother. …The Clippers honored broadcaster Ralph Lawler for broadcasting his 3,000th regular season game.
