See all posts by Christopher Ruane Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It’s a year tomorrow since the Health Secretary announced the first national lockdown in Parliament. The UK has since gone through a series of lockdowns that have doomed many businesses. Some companies have prospered during lockdown, however. One example is B&M European Value Retail (LSE:BME). These FTSE 100 shares more than doubled between the start of lockdown and last month. They’ve since fallen back slightly, but are still up 98% over the past year.Here’s why I would still consider buying B&M even after this strong run.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…B&M has a successful retail formatThe B&M story has been impressive for many years. The lockdown simply shone a stronger light on it. Its retail philosophy of providing well-known brands at bargain basement prices has been a hit with shoppers. Often the shops are positioned just outside town centres. That allows for cheaper rents.However, the retail landscape in the UK has changed at speed. That could be a downside risk for B&M. For example, its success is driven by physical stores at a time when more shopping is moving online. Its price conscious image could also hamper any attempt to expand into the middle market.How lockdowns have helped B&MB&M was able to stay open in the UK during the lockdowns because of what it sells. Its French shops were closed for some time, but the growth engine of these FTSE 100 shares is its 971 UK shops. Being open when other shops are closed boosts sales, as was seen at retailers such as Tesco.But that wasn’t the only reason B&M did so well during lockdown. I think it also benefited from its keen pricing. At a time when people are concerned about economic uncertainty and many were furloughed or lost their jobs, the firm’s deep discounting likely became more attractive. For example, in the last quarter of 2020, B&M recorded 26.6% revenue growth in its UK stores. Tesco reported for a slightly longer period (19 weeks) but the growth was 7.6%. Tesco’s figure is actually still very impressive to me, but it comes nowhere near B&M’s.Lockdown has enabled B&M to showcase its offering to a wider number of customers too, at a time when value matters to many shoppers. But that’s a risk too. When the economy picks up, B&M could see a drop in demand. Yet its retail formula looks set to keep attracting customers, in my view. The vaccine rollout and lockdowns easing mean competitors will reopen. But some have closed forever. Their loss may be B&M’s gain. Then again, maybe like other bricks and mortar retailers, B&M will suffer from a declining high street.Why I’d still consider buying these FTSE 100 sharesSo with its strong share price increase over the past 12 months, has the B&M growth story run out of fuel? I don’t think so. The company has been good at sharing its success with stockholders. In its current financial year, it has already increased its interim dividend by 60% to 4.3p, as well as declaring a special dividend of 20p. However, the dividend was historically lower. Dividends could go down again, not just up. Meanwhile, its trading update in January suggested full-year adjusted EBITDA of £540-£570m. That’s less than a tenth of its current market cap. Even after its strong price performance in the past year, I’d consider buying B&M now.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS They aren’t world champions by chance. Fourie du Preez is the best scrum-half in the world and the quality of his kicking is a big part of the kick-chase game they will employ. They won’t use this tactic alone, but they’re accomplished at smothering other teams and not allowing them to play.Morné Steyn has always played well at fly-half in partnership with du Preez, and the Springbok half-backs are a settled combination, which is what you want. The centre partnership of Jean de Villiers and Jaque Fourie is also very powerful, and before we even look at the pack there is evidence of quality and experience. The All Blacks have a huge incentive for winning in front of their own fans, but no one should underestimate what a massive motivation it is for the Springboks to become the first side in history to retain the World Cup.They have a proud record, winning two finals, so they have the upper hand over New Zealand in terms of results. I know just how much the likes of John Smit and Victor Matfield want to achieve back-to-back World Cups.It’s an amazing All Black team, but South Africa will be working out ways to nullify their multiple threats and to get at Dan Carter. They have an inner belief against New Zealand that no other side has.That is why Smit needs to lead from the front. He’s a talismanic player and a world-class captain, and there’s nothing to be gained from chopping and changing now, despite Bismarck du Plessis making a strong claim for the No 2 shirt. TheBoks can have the best of both worlds, and they should start with John and bring Bismarck on as an impact player.The Tri-Nations is important because every team that has won a World Cup has had good results going into it, and I’d like to see the Boks know what they want to do tactically. They need to perform well, especially in the last couple of games in South Africa when they need the momentum going into the tournament of beating Australia and New Zealand. Between 1986 and 1997, the hooker played 92 Test matches for the All Blacks, scored 12 tries and won the inaugural World Cup in 1987. He also led the team a then record 51 times from 1992 until his retirement due to a knee injury in 1997. New Zealand are fit, strong, structured and clinical, and in Dan Carter, Richie McCaw and Kieran Read they have three of the world’s best players. In fact, they have match-winners from one to 22, and they’re also peaking at the right time.That is a long list of good reasons to expect them to win the World Cup and, unlike last time, it’s almost impossible to find any influential voices in New Zealand who are critical of what the All Blacks have done over the past two years under the guidance of Graham Henry.In the build-up to the 2007 tournament in France I was part of a minority who were uncomfortable with the rotation within the All Black camp and the conditioning programme, and we questioned why Henry was trying to protect players. This time there has been no repeat, because not only has Henry listened but a lot of the senior players have grown in stature.Henry has realised that you cannot wrap these guys in cotton wool and that the nature of rugby is that players need to be out in the white heat of competition.McCaw also has much more input than before as captain, and the relationship between him and the head coach is much better than it was four years ago. The same applies to other senior players like Mils Muliaina and Brad Thorn, who share the leadership responsibilities.McCaw’s injury at the start of the Super 15 gave him a well-earned rest and although he’s hugely important to the All Blacks, at least Henry knows he can call on his Crusaders understudy, Matt Todd, to do a job at openside if needs be.A replacement for Carter is the biggest issue because every World Cup-winning team has had an exceptional fly-half. Whether it’s Grant Fox in 1987, Michael Lynagh in 1991, Joel Stransky in 1995, Steve Larkham in 1999, Jonny Wilkinson in 2003 or Butch James in 2007, all of them were at the heart of what made their teams tick – and stayed fit throughout.That’s why all Kiwis will be holding their breath during the Tri-Nations every time Carter gets the ball. Over the years he has proved to be pretty durable, but if the worst happens there’s Aaron Cruden and Colin Slade waiting on the sidelines. Slade did well when he came on for Cruden after Carter was ruled out of one of the Tests against Australia last season.But, hopefully, the All Blacks won’t need to call on a back-up No 10.This article appeared in the September 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK I’M not convinced that any New Zealand side has choked in a World Cup, they have simply come up against teams, or factors, that were exceptional on the day. Knockout rugby means all teams, the All Blacks included, are subject to injuries, referees and weather that can change the outcome of any game.It will take a very good side to beat New Zealand this year, and they’ll have to play the game of their lives to do it. Sure, the pressure will be on, especially at home, but the expectations on the All Blacks are always huge and after 2007 the senior players at the core of this squad have a much better knowledge of how to deal with it. New Zealand rugby veteran Sean Fitzpatrick speaks to the media in Tbilisi, on January 29, 2011. Fitzpatrick announced today that he has become an adviser to the national rugby union body in Georgia, an ex-Soviet republic seeking to become a force in the world game. Georgia will take part in its third successive Rugby World Cup this year in New Zealand, and sees the involvement of Fitzpatrick as an adviser and an ambassador for the national game as another step towards joining the international elite. AFP PHOTO / VANO SHLAMOV (Photo credit should read VANO SHLAMOV/AFP/Getty Images) Richie McCaw and Graham Henry face the music after not making the 2007 World Cup semi-finalsSean FitzPatrick v Neil De Kock. Who will you agree with?Every four years New Zealand are installed as odds-on favourites to win the World Cup, and for the last five of the six global tournaments held they have done a Devon Loch and come crashing to earth.It’s been 24 years since David Kirk’s All Blacks swept all before them to clinch the inaugural World Cup on New Zealand soil. In 2007 they failed to even make the semi-finals for the first time, defeat to France leaving Richie McCaw and Graham Henry (above) struggling for words.With the country hosting the event again this year, there are fervent hopes that McCaw’s side will repeat the 1987 triumph.However, the draw means they appear destined to meet reigning world champions South Africa in the 2011 semi-finals. This has raised questions over whether the All Blacks, exceptional though they look from this distance, will be able to handle the pressure of huge home expectation, and also see off the Springboks, who are chasing back-to-back World Cups.Here Sean Fitzpatrick, who was part of the victorious 1987 All Blacks side, explains why New Zealand are the real deal this time, while ex-Springbok scrum-half Neil de Kock argues that South Africa are ready to spring a deadly ambush.Read their viewpoints and then vote in our poll…THE All Blacks have been odds-on favourites for every World Cup going back to the inaugural tournament in 1987. But every time since, someone has knocked them off the pedestal to become world champions. With New Zealand hosting the tournament again, this is their big chance to reclaim the trophy – but can they handle the pressure?My hunch is that the pressure will be ten-fold what it was in France four years ago and that once more New Zealand could implode under the weight of it. They are also in the same half of the draw as South Africa and if results go as expected they will meet in the semi-finals. It’s easy to see the All Blacks as clear favourites, but as the reality of a South Africa versus New Zealand semi comes closer, the ability and experience within the Bok ranks will come into sharper focus and the odds will get narrower. How the All Blacks react to the heat being turned up at home is what interests me – and the Boks will certainly bring the pressure!The scrum-half won ten Springbok caps. Having played for the Stormers and Western Province, he joined Saracens in 2006, captained the team in 2007-08 and helped them win the Aviva Premiership last season.

During the Varsity Cup in South Africa, one player pulled off an unbelievable tackle. Or maybe you prefer this massive hit on Italian fly-half Tomasso Allan?Okay, strictly speaking it isn’t a cover tackle, but nonetheless it is still a brilliant hit by Wales’ skipper on the day, Taulupe Faletau.Related: Top 100 Players In The World Italy were looking threatening with ball in hand against Wales, and it appeared they had an overlap near the halfway line.Well they did until Faletau put in a tackle with huge ferocity on Allan, who, justifiably so, struggled to get up.What makes this even better, is the reaction of both players after.As Allan gets up, looking shaky, Faletau looks over and gives him a thumbs up and a wink. Allan simply smiles back.It was a brutal hit, met with great sportsmanship from both players. After some brilliant attacking rugby, the University of Johannesburg (black and orange kit), looked as if they had scored another try to put themselves up by at least 19 points to five.However, University of Witwatersrand winger, Kwanele Ngema had other ideas.Coming out of nowhere, the winger put in a try-saving hit to keep his team in the game. His celebration after the tackle sums up the importance of the defensive effort.But the question is, is it as good as the tackle made by England substitute flanker Sam Underhill during the 2018 Six Nations?With the game in the balance after 60 minutes, Wales looked as if they were going to score in the corner to narrow England’s lead. However showing a quick turn of speed, Underhill dived and managed to flip Welshman Scott Williams into touch.Which one do you think is better? Which of the three tackles is your favourite?Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter. WATCH: Is This The Greatest Cover Tackle Ever?During the Varsity Cup, a university-based competition that takes place in South Africa, we may have just seen the greatest cover tackle ever. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS
Whether or not a player has performed a ‘double movement’ in the act of scoring a try has sparked debate in the 2019 Six Nations, but what does it mean? The key phrase there is in 14.7.1: you must move the ball “in any direction except forward” when tackled. The player needs momentum to carry them over the line. You must place the ball once; if you initiate a second action, that is believed to be a double movement.The sanction for non-compliance here is a penalty against you – so if we consider that a player is tackled as they attempt to score a try, fall short but make a second movement towards the line and thus fail to “move away from the ball” as they get up, not only is the score chopped off but the opposition gain possession. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Make the ball available so that play can continue by releasing, passing or pushing the ball in any direction except forward. They may place the ball in any direction.Move away from the ball or get up.Ensure that they do not lie on, over or near the ball to prevent opposition players from gaining possession of it. During the first round of the 2019 Six Nations, Scotland thought they had scored a try against Italy, only for the officials to decide that there was a ‘double movement’ in the act of dotting down.One incident was notable. But in the final match-up of the opening round, Ireland’s Cian Healy scored a try against England. There were questions over whether there had been a double movement this time too, but there was no TMO referral and the try was awarded.England went on to defeat Ireland in Dublin, but those question marks will remain for some. So what is a double movement? Looking at the law book, law 14.7 states that a tackled player must immediately: Double movement is an established rugby league term and there is no specific mention in the laws of rugby union. However, we are used to seeing a penalty being awarded for a double movement whenever an attacker is ‘tackled’ before they reach the try-line, and after being brought to ground and held they make another movement to go forward and place the ball on or over the try-line. Yes or no: Cian Healy scored against England, but was it a double movement? Related: Television Match Official explained Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
