first_imgFriday Apr 10, 2020 Rene Ranger’s MLR side have announced their withdrawal from the league Following the cancellation of the Major League Rugby season in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Colorado Raptors have announced that they have withdrawn from the competition.ADVERTISEMENTRugby in the United States has been hit hard by the pandemic, with USA Rugby recently filing for bankruptcy, and this is yet another casualty of the crisis.In a statement recently on Twitter, the Raptors said: “It is with a heavy heart that we tell you all that the Colorado Raptors will be withdrawing from Major League Rugby effective May 2, 2020.“While we would have preferred to go out with a huge celebration honouring both players and fans, the sudden end of the season due to the COVID-19 health crisis has made that impossible.“Glendale has been supportive of Major League Rugby since the moment of its inception, and we certainly wish the League every success. But we believe that our greater responsibility lies in the development of American players who can go on to win the World Cup for the United States.“Glendale is RugbyTown USA, and we will always have a huge stake in the sport of rugby; this decision doesn’t change that. Thank you for your support of the Colorado Raptors; and please continue to be fans of all rugby that is played at Infinity Park. When we get to the other side of this health crisis, and we WILL get to the other side, the party’s at our place!”pic.twitter.com/KnDaDxIdxS— Colorado Raptors (@coraptorsrugby) April 9, 2020ADVERTISEMENTThe MLR season was only five weeks old when it was cancelled, with the Raptors having won two of their matches. This looked to be a promising season for the league as a whole, with a number of global stars of the game arriving over the winter.The Glendale-based side, who had former Wallabies international Digby Ioane, as well as Kiwi Rene Ranger in their squad this year, have been part of the league since its conception in 2018, finishing runners-up in the inaugural season.WATCH THEIR TOP TRIES: ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

She was elected Sunday by the Corporation with the consent of the Board of Overseers, in accordance with the University’s charter.Announcing the appointment, President Drew Faust and William F. Lee, the Corporation’s senior fellow, said, “Shirley Tilghman is one of the nation’s foremost molecular biologists and one of higher education’s most admired and perceptive leaders. Her deep scientific expertise will bring valuable insight to the work of our governing boards in an era of transformative change in the life sciences and allied fields. Her broad experience in leading one of the country’s great universities will bring fresh perspectives and beneficial knowledge to our consideration of Harvard’s opportunities and challenges at a pivotal moment for universities.“Beyond her remarkable resume, she is a person highly regarded for her intellectual curiosity and creativity, her collegiality and incisiveness, her nuanced understanding of complex organizations, and her dedication to advancing the progress of the institutions she serves,” Faust and Lee added. “We greatly look forward to welcoming her.”As president of Princeton from 2001 to 2013, Tilghman expanded the university’s commitment to undergraduate financial aid; launched its four-year residential college system; oversaw the founding of academic initiatives in the arts, energy and the environment, and neuroscience; presided over the growing internationalization of Princeton’s programs; and guided the creation of a master plan for future development of the university’s campus, among other accomplishments.

In view of her combination of broad scientific expertise and university leadership experience, she was appointed to chair the comprehensive review of the life sciences at Harvard that was undertaken this fall.In addition, she was recently named to the board of directors of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT.
