first_imgNATHAN Brown is looking for Saints to build on the win over Leeds Rhinos when they face Warrington on Saturday.His charges ran in six tries in the come from behind victory – but that will count for nothing if they don’t continue to improve this weekend.“It was a good end result for as they started well and got to a commanding lead,” Brown said. “Considering what has happened over the past four weeks the guys showed good resolve to hang in there. We were proud of them and now we have to build on that.“We had a fair bit more experience in the side and players in their accustomed positions. We put people back in the positions they have played in the majority of their career or where they have played a number of games and that helped the younger players.“The young kids contributed well I thought. Luke Thompson did it tough early on but his second stint was really good.“It was good to get on the board after a lean four weeks but we have to build on that.”Brown says the squad came through the Rhinos clash in good shape but he isn’t sure if any players will return from injury this weekend.James Roby has a chance but if he isn’t 100 per cent he won’t play.“Warrington have been playing really well and are always hard to beat,” Brown continued. “They have their strengths but we are putting ourselves back together.“We need to focus on tidying up our own areas, getting our backyard in order and building combinations.”Latest ticket information for the Magic Weekend is here.last_img read more

Watch Maltese researchers working on material to help bone defects

first_img <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> A group of Maltese scientists are researching on a product that could help people with bone defects for the global met with the BioSA team which is made up of researchers from the worlds of engineering and medicine.Prof. Ing. Joseph Buhagiar explained that the aim of the project is to create implants known as scaffolds made out of different materials whose porosity allows bone cells to fit within and therefore fix the defect.He added that this research will take a number of years to materialize, and a consortium has been set up, whose members include the University of Malta and the Orthopaedic department at Mater Dei Hospital with the aim of making a success out of this research.PhD candidate in engineering Christabelle Tonna , told that the laboratory is currently using sponges who are rather similar to the ones found in most households. These sponges are being covered with a mixture of dust, metal and light glue and put in ovens that reach a temperature of 1,200°C which allows for the original sponge base to disintegrate and the mixture to bind.Currently, the BioSA team is working on an optimal material composition that reflects the rate of bone degradation and self-repair.Dr Luke Saliba, a medical doctor that also specialises in orthopaedic surgery said that the scaffold will provide an alternative for what is currently being used that is allogradt or autograft which involve real bones from the same patient or others.Saliba elaborated that there is still a long way to go for the finalisation of the project and that currently the team is doing cell research and metal corrosion and its effects on the bones.Project BioSA (R&I-2017-037T) is financed from teh Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) through FUSION: R&I Technology Development Programme.Further details on the project can be found on the initiative’s website or Facebook page.WhatsApp SharePrintlast_img read more
