Carrera helps Netanya to rugby victory

With two teams beset with squad problems, only one match of the weekend's rugby league took to the field.

Beersheba and Ra'anana found themselves forced to cancel their scheduled games but league leaders Hapoel Netanya forged ahead, beating Rishon Lezion 16-5. Dion Carrera and Sasha Volkov were the respective try scorers for Netanya and Rishon while fullback Darren Pincus converted the try and added three penalties of his own to swell the Netanya scorecard.

This weekend the second training session of the senior national team will be held at Pardes Hanna, putting the league games on hold.

Capital cyclists want bike paths

"We're not stopping the traffic - we are the traffic" say cyclists from Jerusalem for Bicycles.

As on the last Friday of every month, the group will gather tomorrow at 1 pm in front of the Mashbir for their Critical Mass ride in the downtown area. The movement is picking up speed around the country - monthly CM rides are now held in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ashkelon and Rishon Lezion.

The Jerusalem branch is pressing for the municipality to institute bicycle paths and will be making an all-out effort so that this month's ride will bring together the largest number of two-wheelers yet in the capital.
