MY EYE: Who's covering the road sign?

This photo sent to us by "Djayman" via the My Eye feature on the CNC3 App, was captioned "Ministry of Road”.

Djayman says this is on Sellier Street in St Augustine, adding, "Some idiot keeps covering the no entry sign with plastic bags causing the world of confusion and chaos."

We trust that the authorities will look into it.

We thank Djayman for the photo and remember you too can send us your photos and video via the My Eye feature in the new CNC3 App.

 

T&T hockey men edged out 5-4 by Russia

T&T's men's hockey team was edged out 5-4 to Russia on Tuesday in their final warm-up match before their World Cup opener against the Czech Repubic on Wednesday in Berlin.

The defeat will not, or at least should not, affect the morale in the T&T camp, because this Russia team is ranked number four in the world.

The local boys gave one of the World Cup favourites a run for its money with goals from Akim Toussaint, Jordan Vieira, Mickell Pierre, and Shaquille Daniel.

TTCB says it is tightening disciplinary process

The T&T Cricket Board says it is tightening its disciplinary process and "recently started a review of its internal organisational structure and processes."

In a media release issued on Tuesday afternoon, the TTCB said the board management structure is being re-examined as it relates to utilisation of resources, in light of the changing, and at times challenging cricket and economic landscapes.

NGC, the board's main sponsor pulled the plug on its partnership and has left a hole in the finances of the National Sports Organisation.
