Richard Agar was delighted by the effort put in by his side after Leeds Rhinos recorded a 22-16 victory over Warrington Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Rhinos built up a 22-6 lead early in the second half but had to survive a frantic rally from the Wolves as Josh Charnley claimed two late tries, while the visitors had both Liam Sutcliffe and Robert Lui in the sin-bin in the final 10 minutes.

Leeds scored three tries through Lui, Alex Mellor and Ash Handley, while Rhyse Martin kicked five goals from as many attempts.

Rhinos hold out to end Wolves’ winning run

Leeds survived having two men sin-binned inside the final 10 minutes to hold out for a 22-16 win away to Warrington.

“It was a magnificent effort from our boys,” Agar said. “We came to play and as the energy dropped out of the game it was like touch and pass in the second half and we were clinging on and had to hang on by our fingernails for dear life.

“But we hung on and came up with some great last-ditch efforts and only conceded with 11 men in the second half with a few minutes left on the clock, so it was a magnificent effort.

“It was an enormous task to come to Warrington on the back of a really tough schedule and the spirit we showed sticking in for each other was fantastic.

Leeds Rhinos coach Richard Agar said his side was 'clinging on' at the end, but did enough to claim victory over Warrington Wolves.

Leeds Rhinos coach Richard Agar said his side was ‘clinging on’ at the end, but did enough to claim victory over Warrington Wolves.

“I thought in the first half we were magnificent, we tackled really well, and we just got away from that for 10 minutes and they ended up getting a soft try. We knew we were going to do it tough and when you throw in the two sin-bins as well, the spirit we showed was fantastic.”

The packed schedule continues for the Rhinos on Friday when they face another tough test against the high-flying Catalans Dragons at Emerald Headingley.

“We go again in four days’ time and I’m thinking: ‘how do we do it again?’,” Agar said. “The boys need mentally refreshing because after a good backs-to-the-wall effort like that, you could hear a pin drop in the dressing room.

“They are absolutely exhausted, and I’ve never heard a dressing room so quiet. But we will have a day off and go again later in the week to play the team at the top of the competition.”

Warrington coach Steve Price believed his side got what they deserved after their six-match Super League winning run came to an end.

“We came up with 19 errors and completed at 60 per cent and you don’t give yourself a chance to win the game when you deliver that,” Price said. “Our tackle control was not up to standard tonight and that performance was not acceptable.

“We were disappointing tonight from the first set when we made less than 30 metres and it has been one of our strengths.

“They dominated field position for the majority of the game and were clearly the better team, while we had one decent set in the first half when we scored a try, but we needed to be better.

“It’s individuals’ responsibility to control the football, be disciplined and to get the tackle control right, which are all effort areas and they did that better than us.”

Tottenham chief Daniel Levy sets stance on Nuno becoming next Spurs boss after Wolves exit

Tottenham will not pursue Nuno Espirito Santo although the Portuguese coach will leave Wolves at the end of the season. It was confirmed on Monday that the manager’s four-year Molineux stint will end after this weekend once Wolves conclude their Premier League campaign against Manchester United.
And the 47-year-old former Porto boss, who only signed a contract extension with Wolves to stay until 2023 back in September, has immediately been linked to Spurs.

The north London outfit are yet to name their permanent successor to Jose Mourinho who was sacked in April before the Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City.

Ryan Mason has been the temporary stand-in for Nuno’s countryman since then but the 29-year-old is not expected to get the job permanently.

Brighton’s Graham Potter and Erik ten Hag at Ajax, who recently signed a new deal of his own, are among the exciting attack-minded coaches on Spurs’ radar.

Julian Nagelsmann had been a high-profile target but the young German has confirmed he is leaving RB Leipzig to take over at Bayern Munich once this season ends.

Yet while Nuno has now become available and would be a hassle-free appointment, he is not in Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s sights, per reports.

Football.london say the Wolves manager has never been looked at by the Londoners and that even though they are still yet to name Mourinho’s replacement, Nuno is still not in contention.

Nuno has been in charge of Wolves since 2017 and enjoyed huge success in the Midlands, taking them to the Championship title in 2017-18.

Named the LMA Manager of the Year that same season, Nuno went on to take Wolves to back-to-back seventh-placed finishes in England’s top flight.

The club are 12th going into Sunday’s 4pm clash with United but cannot finish any higher with rivals Aston Villa seven points ahead of them in 11th.

Under Nuno, Wolves also got to the quarter-final stage of the Europa League last season before losing to eventual winners Sevilla.
In a statement, Nuno said of his imminent Molineux exit: “Since the first day we arrived at Compton, our ambition was to make a positive change and push this football club forward, and I am proud to say that we did that every single day.

“We achieved our goals, we did it with passion and we did it together.”
Kane says it would be a ‘dream’ to play alongside Manchester City star
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy to make Brendan Rodgers transfer promise
Kane ‘perfect’ for Chelsea as striker backed to help three Blues starsFormer Benfica boss Bruno Lage is the favourite to replace Nuno at Wolves while Spurs’ search is ongoing, with Levy confirming recently that is his primary focus at present.

“We shall focus on the recruitment of a new head coach,” Levy said in a statement.

“We are acutely aware of the need to select someone whose values reflect those of our great club and return to playing football with the style for which we are known – free-flowing, attacking and entertaining – whilst continuing to embrace our desire to see young players flourish from our academy alongside experienced talent.”

Brighton boss Potter meanwhile says he has paid no attention to the speculation linking him with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium job.

“I don’t pay too much attention to things that are outside of my control, things that get written, or speculation,” he said.

“I am focused on this job, trying to finish the season off as strongly as we can. I am excited by the team, I am excited by the club, so I just focus on that.

“It [the Tottenham job] is nothing I have considered. I have got a contract here. I am committed to this, we’ve got a lot to do, we’re just at the start of what we’re doing.”

Seventh-placed Spurs end their season against Leicester against Brendan Rodgers, another coach admired by Levy, at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

In Montana, Bears and Wolves Become Part of the Culture Wars

The return of the wolf and grizzly bear to the northern Rockies are two success stories that came out of the Endangered Species Act. In 1975, when grizzly bears were listed as endangered species, there were from 100 to 200 of them, mostly in Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. Their numbers are now estimated at about 1,800 in the Lower 48 states. The grizzlies were able to make that comeback largely because hunting was ended, trash was carefully managed and there was an effective crackdown on poachers.

Outside Yellowstone and Glacier national parks, grizzly bears roam mainly in wilderness areas of the state, though they are expanding into more populated areas where they are increasingly vulnerable to being hit by cars, shot by hunters, and killed or removed by biologists because of conflicts with humans. And bears and wolves pose a real threat to livestock and to humans. Every year, hikers or hunters are attacked by bears, and in many parts of the state anyone hiking is cautioned to be “bear aware” and carry a pepper-based spray for protection.

The debate over protecting endangered species, particularly predators, has long roiled Montana, pitting liberal urban areas in the state and across the country against rural ranchers who are increasingly concerned about their livestock being killed or hunters who think game animals are in decline. Until now, a measured approach — which includes some hunting of wolves and intervention by the state when grizzlies get into someone’s beehive or chicken coop — along with lots of protection have prevailed. But with wildlife management increasingly part of the culture wars, antagonism toward widening federal control and Republican control of the state, the balance has shifted, conservationists say.

The new bills approach management of bears and wolves in various ways. One of the new bills would pay wolf hunters their expenses — in effect, critics say, a bounty — to kill the animals. Another bill would allow for snaring animals with a metal aircraft cable fashioned into a noose that would hang over a trail. When the animal gets its head caught in one, it grows tighter as the animal tries to flee, until it is strangled to death. Snares can be used for coyotes and black bears in Montana but not wolves.

A major problem with snares is that they also kill species that are not the target, such as moose, elk, deer and even pet dogs. “Snares are cheap,” Dr. Bangs said. “It isn’t unusual for a trapper to set out 100. And you catch all kinds of stuff.” Snares that were set for coyotes, for example, inadvertently killed 28 mountain lions from 2015 to 2020, Mr. Gevock said.

Another bill would extend the wolf trapping and snaring season. Wildlife experts say the extended season would overlap with the period that grizzly bears and black bears are out of their dens and could be inadvertently trapped. Another would reinstate hunting black bears with dogs and prevent Montana wildlife officials from relocating any grizzly bears captured outside recovery zones. Most recovery zone habitat are occupied, which means many grizzlies would most likely have to be euthanized.

Fortnite update 16 patch notes

UPDATE 3: Update details and patch notes have been revealed for Fortnite Season 6: Primal.

The new Battle Pass contains skins such as Agent Jones, Raz, Raven, Cluck, Tarana, Spire Assassin and Lara Croft. Neymar will also join Fortnite later in the season.

The Primal theme takes things back to a more primitive time, and will see nature reclaim the island. As you can see from the map below, this includes lots of new POIs for players to explore.

Fortnite players will also be able to tame wolves and use chickens to glide through the air.

Weapons like the Boom Bow will make a return for Season 6, alongside other primitive versions of classic weapons.

UPDATE 2: According to the latest set of Fortnite leaks, update 16.00 will indeed add tamable wolves, as well as other animals like chickens and boars.

Unconfirmed reports also suggest that Lara Croft will join the Battle Pass, alongside a chicken skin and a new Jonesy outfit.

Season 6 will coincide with the release of the Hazard Platoon Pack, which contains the Centurion outfit, new back bling, a picakxe and 600 V-Bucks.

UPDATE: Fortnite Season 6 server downtime has started, which means you can now begin to download update 16.00.

The new Fortnite update will launch at different times depending on the platform, although downtime begins and ends at the same time for everybody.

Speaking of downtime, the game has been taken offline by Epic, and won’t return until at least 8am GMT.

“Downtime for Chapter 2 Season 6 (v16.00) has begun!” reads an Epic tweet. “As a reminder, patch rollout times will vary per platform. We’ll let you all know when downtime has ended.”

ORIGINAL: Fortnite update 16.00 is about to be released on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android.

The new update has a March 16 release date. It will launch during a period of server downtime, which begins at 4am GMT.

The update launch time will vary depending on the platform, although downtime will end at the same time for all players.

Season 6 will begin with the Zero Crisis story cinematic, which premieres at 8am GMT. This is followed by a single-player mission available to all players when they login.

“CH2 Season 6 launches on March 16 with the explosive conclusion of the events of Season 5,” reads an Epic Games tweet. “You’ll play through the culmination of Agent Jones’ mission in the Zero Crisis Finale. This is a solo experience & you can play through it whenever you first log in during the Season.”

In terms of the Fortine update 16 patch notes, Season 6 will feature an updated map, as well as a brand new Battle Pass.

If the leaks are anything to go by, the Battle Pass could be headlined by a Neymar skin. That’s based on a recent teaser featuring what appears to be Neymar’s shirt.

Wolves are also tipped to appear in the new Fortnite Season, while a shotgun from Save the World is expected to make its debut.

Needless to say, update 16.0 launches with a whole host of gameplay tweaks and bug fixes, which can be seen in the patch notes below.

Rui Patricio injury: Wolves star leaves field in neck brace after horror collision

Former England goalkeeper Rob Green was co-commentating on the match on the radio in the UK and gave his opinion on the incident.

“Even if it was the impact on the head, the whiplash through the neck and the damage that can be done can be quite great,” Green said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“They have to make sure his welfare is taken care of before they move him.

“They already had one serious head injury this season. If there’s a club that’s depserate to get this right after what happened to Raul Jimenez, it’s Wolves.
