Which just leaves the rugby.“I think there’s a massive variation between all the teams,” Savage says of Top Rugby, pointing out that a South African head coach, a Kiwi head coach and a Japanese head coach may set up teams differently, while the foreign stars involved can shape things too. Kobelco Steelers, for example, are worth looking at with their Wayne Smith and Dan Carter-led group. But there’s more.“If you look historically you might be able to say that’s the team with the big scrum while another team might like to sling it wide. But because a lot of the style of play is based on Super Rugby, it’s that little bit quicker. And the guys here are fit. We did fitness testing on Monday and the yo-yo scores for some of the forwards were outstanding, considering it was day one of pre-season. Whether it was the bronco test or the yo-yo, the level of fitness and professionalism is through the roof.Related: Jacques Nienaber’s journey from physio to Springboks defence coach“The work ethic is awesome and the game’s a little quicker, and each team may have a unique style, but rugby is rugby at the end of the day, everybody kind of copies each other these days with forward pods and how you play out the back of that. So it’s how you execute it.“Rugby has been big here for a long time – it’s bigger than people probably realise. But Japan doing really well at the World Cup probably helps that. You hear talk that Sunwolves have one year left in Super Rugby, but they might come back in. Are they bringing in a new professional league over the next couple of years or will Top Rugby stay as it is? Well there’s massive companies involved and the talent pool is pretty big; the quality of players is really good.“You’ve got a lot of guys here now who have experienced rugby at international level, Sunwolves level or have played week in, week out against some of the guys coming over from other countries. So I can only see it going up and up and up.”Which is glowing praise. When the season finally kicks off, Sungoliath will be coached by former Georgia boss Milton Haig, while Samu Kerevi comes in to join fellow Wallaby caps Matt Giteau and Sean McMahon. They have some big talents from the southern hemisphere.Big name: Dan Carter kicking for Kobelco Steelers (Getty Images)So does Savage think more names from Europe should try and experience the elite game in Japan?“Actually yeah,” he says. “I think it’s just an opportunity that doesn’t necessarily present itself to people, maybe because of timings.“It was quite a unique situation for me, almost one of these sliding door moments, that had the season structure with the World Cup not changed it might not have ever fitted. That and the timing of being out (injured) within a Premiership season, and my contract and things like that.“But everyone’s main fear is probably of the unknown. I’ve been very, very fortunate with the team I’ve ended up at, with a rich history of being successful.”His is the rare move. But it is always reassuring to know that there are players – families even – willing to shoot for that life experience. Maybe others will start following their trail. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Now with Suntory Sungoliath, the former Gloucester stalwart is following an exciting new path Carrying hard: Savage in action for Suntory Sungoliath (Aki Nagao) Meet Tom Savage, the Englishman taking on Japan’s Top LeagueFor talented young players in Europe, the path to making it in this game is pretty well signposted. From school and junior clubs to academies and usually pro sides in just three major leagues, so many athletes thunder along it. On very few occasions do you see that route meander into Japan’s Top League.Yet here sits former Gloucester skipper Tom Savage, in a cafe in Tokyo’s Harajuku area with his wife Lauren, trying to explain how he came to join Suntory Sungoliath.“I had a lot of sleepless nights to be honest,” Savage says of the decision to continue his career in Japan. The 30-year-old lock made 142 Premiership appearances in cherry and white from the 2011-12 season, before signing a two-year deal and heading East in the summer. Now deep into pre-season and excited about the prospect of getting torn in for one of the most storied clubs in the league, it is an interesting time.He goes on: “It wasn’t something I ever really anticipated being an option, because of how few English players have done it. The foreign contingent who are over here are mainly Super Rugby players and I think the Japanese mainly watch Super Rugby, with the time zones and things like that. I think they base their game around that a lot more.“It was one of those things where negotiations were going on as normal with Gloucester (ahead of his contract running out), as they have in any previous year. Probably the only reason I wasn’t signed up early, as normally happens, was because I did my MCL in the first pre-season game. And then that meant I just wanted to wait until new players came in and I was fit and could see where I fit in, in the pecking order. And in the meantime, I got this call from my agent saying we’ve had some interest from over in Japan. We weren’t even sure which club it was.”Giving it all for the cause: Tom Savage during his time with Gloucester (Getty Images)It turned out that his agents had an office in Australia that worked closely with Japanese clubs, one being Suntory. His highlights package and his CV – with its incredible number of front-line Premiership and European appearances – came across their desk. They wanted to know what would lure him over.Lauren admits that even visiting Japan “was never on my bucket list” while Savage fully believed he would see out his career at Gloucester. Yet in the ultra-physical world of elite rugby, which is now set in a global marketplace, pictures can change.After the Savages decided to bide time, an offer piqued their interests and they began the task of researching, finding out more about a land that can be as perplexing as it is wondrous. The lock would have long chats with Billy Twelvetrees during morning dog walks, bouncing ideas off him. After Willi Heinz sussed what was happening after spying open browsers on Savage’s phone, on a bus trip, he offered help.It transpired that Heinz’s brother-in-law is centre Tim Bateman, who has extensive knowledge of playing in Japan and could offer advice over email. As things began clicking into place and the move was on, Bateman put Savage in touch with Joe Wheeler and Kosei Ono, who could both talk in detail about the Tokyo club.Related: The Great Migration – a special investigationAt the end of the Premiership season, Savage headed over on his own. The Rugby World Cup has meant that that the Top League had to contort itself, with the main season not kicking off until January. But they had a ‘cup’ competition running for a few summer months. The second-row got stuck in.Of this Savage exclaims: “Some people were moaning about the heat of the Rugby World Cup, but at times when I was playing over here in June and July, it was 40°C and my phone was saying it felt like 48!”The lock then went back to Gloucestershire to spend a few months with Lauren, before they headed back to Tokyo together. Which is a bigger move than you think, considering that Lauren is expecting. The couple will spend Christmas in Japan and are well set-up for the baby to come while there.Heavy traffic: In a ‘cup’ game for Suntory (Aki Nagao)“There’s no pain relief at the hospital I’m at, at all, not even gas and air,” laughs Lauren, before the pair explain that they have English-speaking medics and that they will be going for a water birth option, too. They are delighted with their choices and with the baby due just days before the Top League season kicks off in earnest, they look forward to having the family together for this adventure.Slowly, they are making a home. Many of the players live in the same complex and they regularly ride share – Savage believes young back-rower Tevita Tatafu, who he has given lifts to, has a bright future in the game. The club, they say, have been incredibly accommodating too, with families regularly interacting and team assistant Ayumi Shiratori going above and beyond, helping them with translation, with understand bills and with finding their bearings.

In uncertain times, organisational resilience has perhaps never been more crucial for small charities across the UK.”The report’s recommendations include:Fund small charities to focus on their organisational strength and resilience: time with an independent advisor will help them to identify what they really need.Build long-term relationships with small charities: multi-year funding with agreed outcomes but flexibility offers stability as charities come to grips with their plans to become more resilient for the future.Show confidence in small charities and create an atmosphere of honesty: encourage the charity to be honest about what does or doesn’t work and where their skills gaps lie. The CAF Resilience Programme, aimed at testing how CAF and others in the sector can help small charities develop and become more resilient, has shared its first findings in a new report.The CAF Resilience Programme sees ten small to medium sized charities across the UK receive grant funding and bespoke advice and training for two years, funded by philanthropists. The first cohort of three charities have just completed their first year. The selected organisations have also formed a learning community, working with CAF to encourage further philanthropic giving that supports the programme’s goal.Beth Clarke, manager of the programme explained:“We see the programme as the starting point for a wider campaign, one that creates an environment where smaller charities know what they need to become more resilient. We hope that charities will feel emboldened to convey these needs with clarity and urgency to the wide array of funders who assist their vital work.”The report, How funders can do more to support the resilience of small charities, includes insights from the charities involved as well as core recommendations for funders.It found that several charities concluded that delivering on their mission meant doing less and not more, with a renewed focus on quality and impact. One programme partner – Home Start Lincolnshire – stopped delivering work that wasn’t vital to their vision, in order to focus on what really matters to the families they support.It also reveals managing income generation to be one of the most stubborn challenges CAF Resilience partners faced. The Link CIC – an organisation supporting the mental health of young people and their families – used some of their grant to buy in external bid writing support, but work on the programme led them to instead try upskilling delivery staff, plus fund a few extra hours each month to develop relationships with schools that could pay for their services. After just six months, they had three times as many schools contracted for their services and a robust pipeline.Clarke added that while it might not be the first thing people think of when they plan to fund a charity, this approach to building for the future is critical, as is inspiring more major donors to support charities in this way.

Some of the ‘NO to U.S. intervention in Syria’ protesters, May 6.Detroit — On May 6 at downtown’s Hart Plaza, Detroit FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together) held a counterdemonstration in defense of the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic.The FIST action was an answer to global events organized by the so-called #Allepoisburning campaign, which supports the intervention of U.S. and NATO forces and the misnamed Free Syrian Army in the Syrian war. The campaign falsely claims people in the Syrian city of Aleppo are being killed by President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Army.At their protest, anti-imperialist activists loudly chanted slogans denouncing U.S./NATO and their allies for fueling the five-year conflict in Syria. They fiercely opposed any further imperialist involvement in any capacity.Not forgotten are the imperialists’ intervention in and subsequent obliteration of Libya as a functioning society. It is clear that the U.S., NATO and states subservient to them have no intention of bringing anything but destruction to those countries they intervene in and conquer. The same holds true for Syria.As the Syrian Arab Army, with assistance from forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Russian Federation, among others, continues its advance in liberating areas held by various armed groups, a globally coordinated and so-called “grassroots” movement that is imperialist backed and funded and directed by nongovernmental organizations, has sprung up virtually overnight.Claiming solidarity with people in Aleppo, these right-wing demonstrators concealed the fact that the bulk of the territory held by opposition forces in the city belongs to Jabhat al-Nusra, the al-Qaida affiliate in Syria. They obscure the fact that the Syrian government is fighting Western-backed terrorists who are attempting to tear apart one of the last remaining independent, secular, pluralist Arab republics.In Detroit, even when the #Allepoisburning demonstrators outnumbered the anti-imperialists at least 3 to 1, the latter remained militant and determined to defend a banner calling for a halt of U.S./NATO/Israeli attacks on Syria. A verbal and potentially physical confrontation was maintained with resolute defiance, even in the face of overwhelming numbers within arm’s reach.Just a short drive from the two clashing events in downtown Detroit is the city of Dearborn, with the largest Arab population in the U.S. Since the beginning of the conflict, many sizeable demonstrations in support of the Syrian government have occurred in that city, with nothing comparable in favor of U.S. imperialist intervention.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
