Ospreys back on track with victory

first_img After three games without a victory Steve Tandy’s side returned to winning ways to boost their chances of a top-four finish. Outside half Sam Davies, son of former Scarlets and Gloucester coach Nigel, kicked 21 points and set up a try for number eight Dan Baker to seal a much-needed win. A first-half yellow card for forward Dave O’Callaghan proved to be costly for the visitors as the home side scored 11 of their 26 points while Munster were down to 14 men. Munster’s reply came from late tries by Donnacha Ryan and Keith Earls but the outcome was never really in doubt by that stage. A bright start from the Ospreys saw Davies kick them ahead with a penalty after five minutes. They dominated territory and possession in the opening quarter but were struggling to turn their advantage into points on the board. It was the 22nd minute before Davies added to their lead with a second penalty. The key incident of the first half came when Munster flanker O’Callaghan was sent to the sin bin for a high tackle on Ospreys full-back Dan Evans. Within 90 seconds the Ospreys had their opening try when they moved the ball wide and Baker collected Davies’ long pass and went over in the corner. The young fly-half missed the conversion but was able to nudge the Ospreys further in front with his third penalty minutes later. The Ospreys got their Guinness PRO12 play-off charge back on track with a 26-12 victory over fellow title contenders Munster. Press Association Straight from the restart the home side were back on the front foot with Justin Tipuric, making his 100th appearance for the Welsh region, making 30 metres with a fine break down the middle. It put Davies into drop goal range and he slotted his effort straight down the middle to give the Ospreys a 17-0 lead at the break. Munster tried to force their way back into the contest at the beginning of the second period but when they got into Ospreys territory the home side did well to defend a driving line-out and clear. With Munster back up to 15 players the game returned to a tight affair with much of the rugby being played in the middle of the field. Davies kicked a long-range penalty just after the hour mark to keep the scoreboard ticking over for the Ospreys and the 21-year-old was managing the game well for the hosts. Munster finally got success from a driving line-out nine minutes from the end when replacement Ryan was pushed from close range for their opening try. Davies added his fifth penalty for the Ospreys on 75 minutes before less than 90 seconds later Earls crossed in the corner for Munster’s second score. But it proved to be nothing more than a consolation when Davies kicked his sixth penalty at the death. last_img read more

The Indian pacers are getting the desired respect because of their performance in recent days. When he was asked whether the pitch helped them to get back into track, he replied that there should be a good contest between bat and ball through the whole day in the test match.Umesh has been left out of the squad various times throughout his career.

What You Believe About Your Pricing

first_imgWhat you believe about your pricing as a salesperson is what your prospective clients will believe about your pricing.You’re Hiding SomethingEven if you never say out loud that you believe your prices are too high, your body language, your lack of confidence, and the caution in your voice will tell your prospect that you don’t believe you are worth paying more.If you refuse to discuss pricing when asked, it looks like you want to avoid the subject, that you are uncomfortable discussing it. Your avoidance can cause your client to believe that you are afraid to tell them the price because the sticker shock is going to cause them to cut off the conversation. Because you don’t believe the value, they don’t either, and then they do try to end the conversation quickly.Why Your Price Is HigherIf your price is higher than your competitor’s, then it’s higher. Pretending that it is not, or trying to avoid talking about your pricing destroys any confidence in you and your product, service, or solution. You can’t be a trusted advisor and be afraid to “go there” with your clients.The choice to have a higher price is a strategic decision. Higher prices allow companies to create greater value and the kind of meaningful differentiation that produces more significant results—as well as creating a preference for those companies.The right choice is to embrace your high price as the advantage that it is. That higher price allows you to produce better results than your competitors. It allows you to invest money in areas where your competitors are hampered by their lower price, often including the people necessary to serve clients well. It allows you to do things that differentiate you in a crowded market.You Transfer Your BeliefsIf you believe your price is too high, then so will your prospective clients. You will transfer that belief to them through words said or unsaid, and actions taken and avoided.If you believe your higher price is a bargain for the value that you create, then you will transfer that healthier belief to your prospective clients. It’s true that not everybody is going to believe that your price accurately reflects the value you create; that is why we call what we do selling. That said, if someone doesn’t value what you do enough to pay for it, then they aren’t really your client.last_img read more
