Faustian Pact .

Wales 16 - 35 New Zealand (Dalton Papalii). 64 mins. You may have heard this one before, but Wales follow up scoring by giving NZ territory and penalties. This eventually lets Papalii crash through Tomos Williams to score from the back of a lineout. Jordie Barrett converts. 61 mins. Wales win a lineout in the NZ 22 klaxon! After which they carry a couple before Priestland slides a delightful angled grubber in-goal and Williams is first to it. Johnny Williams of Wales dives in to score a try.

British rugby scribes claimed Ian Foster's "devils in black'' made the Welsh Rugby Union pay for a $7.25 million "Faustian pact'' and lamented that "the last time Wales beat New Zealand was the same year Everest was first conquered."

The All Blacks were widely praised for their 54-16 drubbing of an under-strength Wales in Cardiff this morning, with Wales Online conceding the tourists had "delivered a masterclass.''

Several newspapers homed in on the WRU's decision to stage the Test outside the international window, meaning coach Wayne Pivac was without his English-based players.

What I call our Faustian moment came when we took an IMF loan on the eve of our first democratic election. That loan, with strings attached that precluded a radical economic agenda, was considered a necessary evil, as were concessions to keep negotiations on track and take delivery of the promised land for our people. But a revitalisation and renewal from top to bottom is urgently required. The ANC's soul needs to be restored; its traditional values and culture of service reinstated. The pact with the devil needs to be broken.

More than 2 million hectares of New South Wales has been burnt in bushfires. Researcher Guy Ballard took a distressing image of a charred glider in NSW. The glider was found dead at Cathedral Rock National Park east of Armidale. Wildlife group WIRES is offering counselling to its 2,500 volunteers in NSW. Wildlife carers are also being offered counselling to help them cope after being overrun with native animals suffering burns so severe they need to be put down.

The Welsh Rugby Union agreed to the game because a sell-out 74,000 crowd would deliver a reported £4 million (A$7.25 million) cash bonanza.

Daniel Schofield, writing in The Daily Telegraph, said the WRU "signed a Faustian pact to play this match outside the international window and the devils in black made them pay the steepest of prices for their avarice.''

He claimed the "record-equalling home defeat was not half as painful of the sight of (Wales captain) Alun Wyn Jones going off with a shoulder injury in the first half.''

Schofield also injected a seasonal simile, saying: "On the eve of Halloween, Wales' set piece was a horror show. Any kids short of trick or treat costume ideas could go as hooker Ryan Elias whose timing with his jumpers was off by several beats.''

Basham and Anscombe start for Wales against New Zealand

New Faustian Pact - Winged Logo shirts now available. Titled Outojen Tornien Varjoissa, FAUSTIAN PACT 's full-length debut is the grand culmination of all the gloriously bewitching work they brewed across that trio of demos. Exploding with an effervescence that's addicting and undeniable, their swords-aloft attack surges and swells, crests and cascades.

The new partnership was announced in a joint virtual press conference between US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison on Wednesday. And while China was not mentioned directly, the three leaders referred repeatedly to regional security He also said the relationship with France was "rock solid". The Aukus alliance is probably the most significant security arrangement between the three nations since World War Two, analysts say. The pact will focus on military capability, separating it from the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing alliance

Former England and British and Irish Lions flyhalf Stuart Barnes, writing in The Times, said the WRU "got what they asked for. A full house and something in the region of £4 million for a union in dire need of some cash'', while noting the "odds stacked against them."

Robert Kitson, in The Guardian, noted Wales' last victory over the All Blacks dated back to 1953 when New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Norgay Tensing first conquered Mt Everest.

"At no stage did it remotely look as if the hosts were about to scale that still-elusive peak under the bright Cardiff lights, particularly after losing the totemic Alun Wyn Jones to a shoulder injury inside the first quarter. The All Blacks were a speck on the horizon by the end, despite not always being at their fluent, all-dancing best."

Wales to stay positive despite not beating the All Blacks for 68 YEARS

  Wales to stay positive despite not beating the All Blacks for 68 YEARS WILL KELLEHER: It has been so long since their last victory against the All Blacks that anyone present with a memory of 1953 will have been first in line for their Covid booster jab. Only one player survives from that 13-8 win, the prop Courtenay Meredith who turned 95 in September. So Wales are in less of a rut, more a canyon, against New Zealand. © Provided by Daily Mail The odds are stacked against a depleted Wales in Saturday's Test vs New Zealand in Cardiff © Provided by Daily Mail It is understandable then that as a nation Wales has largely given up hoping they might one day beat them.

A new world is possible. Let's not go back to what wasn't working anyway. But in the long run Labour is far better freed from the Faustian pact with community elders. All politics should be retail, not wholesale, and all voters should be treated first as citizens, not members of a minority. The bloc vote has reinforced a lazy form of separatist multiculturalism, which saw a voter as a Kashmiri Muslim first, with views derived from that identity.

The policy can also be seen as a ‘ Faustian Pact ’ with the City whose earnings, it was calculated, would be a major source of the tax revenues needed to rebuild Britain's fading welfare state. Considering the prospects for poverty in the next twenty - five years, this article argues that trends in poverty over the last two decades or so are not a good guide for the future because the increase in poverty occurring during that time was exceptional in the context of this century.

Kitson said Welsh fans were left to admire the brilliance of young All Black wing Will Jordan, lamenting that "every defender in the vicinity seemed to hit a patch of quicksand'' during Jordan's "lovely individual chip and chase score.''


After watching the All Blacks add four tries in the final quarter, Kitson marvelled how Foster's group, "even when they take a while to get going on soft European tracks'' are "mighty hard to catch up the stretch.''

That withering burst was noted by The Press Association, which termed it "a devastating finale that showcased All Blacks rugby at its finest."

Planet Rugby, in its 'five takeaways' from the Test, said: New Zealand were quite compelling at times: their speed, organisation and physicality were breathtaking, with Beauden Barrett player of the match in his 100th Test, "and without question, the single most effective player on the pitch."

The All Blacks' electric finish was acclaimed as "as a tsunami of gas, intellect and power and based upon Saturday's showing, there are few sides in the history of the game that would have lived with them."

Reusable packaging, container deposit schemes, apps and enzymes: Is Australia's waste and recycling sector growing up?

  Reusable packaging, container deposit schemes, apps and enzymes: Is Australia's waste and recycling sector growing up? As Australia's recycling sector undergoes a massive overhaul, single-use plastics – like cutlery and straws — have started to disappear, while an increased amount of packaging must include recycled material. That means changes for businesses, governments and consumers. Millions of investment dollars have already been pledged while new and existing processes will help recover more material and stop it from going into landfill.Here's how the national recycling sector has evolved.

Guardian columnist Andy Bull wrote that "old friends show no mercy on Gareth Anscombe's Wales return'' in the Kiwi's first Test after two years on the sidelines with a knee injury."

Anscombe scored a five out of 10 rating from Wales Online, which said: "It was a big ask for him to face New Zealand after just three proper games since returning from long-term injury."

Wales' fullback Johnny McNicholl, a former Crusaders wing, got a six, with Wales Online noting "he had his moments in attack" and was "not afraid to counter'' but he had "an occasional lapse in defence'' and "threw an intercept pass that Beauden Barrett made the most of late on."

Debutant flanker Taine Basham topped Wales' ratings with eight, followed by fellow backrowers Aaron Wainwright and Ross Moriarty with sevens.

Burns: Stokes presence has given everyone a lift .
Rory Burns had an inkling Ben Stokes might be part of England's trip to Australia but is nevertheless buoyant that the all-rounder is on-hand to help their Ashes bid. Stokes was initially omitted from the party to head Down Under as he focused on his mental wellbeing and fully recovering from a finger injury, which required a second operation last month to remove two screws and scar tissue.
