Ronnie O'Sullivan says he will continue to take risks after a trick shot almost cost him victory over Dominic Dale in round one of the Scottish Open.In the fourth frame, O'Sullivan needed the final black to level at 2-2 but missed a simple pot by trying a 'banana' shot that saw the white fly off the table in Glasgow.Dale took the frame to go 3-1 up before O'Sullivan, 44, fought back to win 4-3."I'd rather be in and out - die early or kill early," he said."There are lot of people who have enjoyed the way I've played over the years, they've supported me and love the way I play snooker," the five-time world champion told Eurosport."They come to my exhibitions and give standing ovations. It's a fine line to tread and there are people who appreciate different types of snooker."I just wanted to banana the black in and see if the pocket could take it. I knew I needed the black, but the pocket couldn't take it."I love the bananas. I'm enjoying it. The most important thing is to enjoy it."O'Sullivan also fouled in the third frame by potting

Yousra Matine & Amine Amiri - African snooker's golden couple

"We're getting married when he wins a title and we wish to invite all the professional players" Africa women's snooker champion Yousra Matine has a vision for her wedding to the men's champion Amine Amiri. He taught her to play snooker when they met three years ago and their love for each other has grown alongside their passion for the game.The couple also have big dreams to make the sport more popular across their home nation of Morocco and the African continent as a whole."My real ambition is to see snooker develop in our country," said Matine, 23, who plays on the World Women's tour alongside 12-time world champion Reanne Evans. "There are a lot of good players. When I see them I am jealous because in Morocco, we don't have 20 of this level."She continued: "There are difficulties for most women because of culture, traditions. There are parents who don't accept their daughters going to the clubs to play snooker. "But the culture is changing now, everyone is trying to be more open-minded and organise more tournaments."Her fiance Amiri, 25, is currently the only African player on the World

Opinion : Saturdays Free Speech Rally opportunity for Conservative Socialists to reclaim the Left

politics
Over the past number of years , Many republicans and socialists on the conservative left have gone silent as they watch on in horror at the antics of the New Left Wing in Ireland . Many conservative republicans and socialists might be pro life , pro traditional values and protecting workers rights through a system of "normal" migration , normal migration being where if someones skills are needed and those skills cannot be filled by a domestic worker you issue them a work visa as opposed to "mass" migration where everyone just piles into the country , mass migration was always seen by the traditional left as a tool by the ruling elite to drive down wages and undermine workers rights . But its the system being cheerleaded by the New left wing in Ireland bankrolled by their new Imperial Masters in the EU Commission . Even James Connolly spoke about the replacement of Irish Workers in a speech written in 1916 .. Here in Ireland we have another kind of dilution of labour. Everywhere since the conscription act was first mooted there has been a rush of
