Montpellier owner Mohed Altrads proposed takeover of Gloucester Rugby has moved a step closer with European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) seeking the opinion of the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and the French Rugby Federation (FFR) over the potential deal. Joe Klecko Womens Jersey .EPCR -- the body in charge of European rugby -- has been asked by Gloucester to approve Altrads purchase of a majority stake in Gloucester.As Altrad owns Montpellier, EPCR is seeking the RFU and FFRs opinion on whether he could have a controlling stake in two European clubs. EPCR is also seeking World Rugbys opinion and wants all three organisations to give their clarified positions on the matter.EPCR is committed to completing all of its due diligence regarding this matter and to assessing any potential risks to the integrity and image of its tournaments in which both clubs participate, by avoiding any potential conflict of interest, or perception thereof, the statement continued.It is important to consider the views of all stakeholders as part of a fair, thorough and transparent decision-making process.A statement from Gloucester CEO Stephen Vaughan -- in response to the EPCRs -- read: We have pledged to remain as frank and open with all our stakeholders as we possibly can on this matter.Last week we confirmed that discussions had begun with Mr Altrad, but that any progress going forward was dependent on receiving approval from a number of relevant bodies.The statement from EPCR confirms that they have received communication from ourselves, We will, of course, strive to keep interested parties up to speed with developments as soon as we are in a position to do so. LeVeon Bell Jersey . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. Robby Anderson Jets Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. http://www.authenticnyjetspro.com/Wayne-chrebet-jets-jersey/ . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. HOOVER, Ala. -- Quarterback questions once again linger around the Southeastern Conference heading into preseason camps. For a league that seems to mass produce NFL-caliber talent, the QB position lately seems to be the one exception to that trend.From Tuscaloosa to Athens, the quarterback competition appears as heated as ever.Its getting to be more and more of a trend, it seems to me, Georgia coach Kirby Smart said at the leagues media days this week. It used to be theres a lot of good quarterbacks, and you hated that as a defensive coordinator for the last eight or nine years you were facing some really talented guys. And it seems to be theres more question marks every time we have this event.Why is that? I dont know. Theres more turnover, more transfers, more competition, more guys coming in to compete. I dont think it inhibits the league at all.Beyond Mississippis Chad Kelly, Tennessees Joshua Dobbs and perhaps Texas A&Ms Trevor Knight, the SEC is full of unknown commodities at quarterback. There are ongoing battles around much of the league, and still inexperienced starters taking over teams like Missouri, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.The SEC has had three quarterbacks drafted in the first round since 2010, and two -- Johnny Manziel and Tim Tebow -- are currently out of the league.It hasnt held Alabama back, at least. The Crimson Tide will start a quarterback with little collegiate experience for the third straight year, whoever claims the job, but has managed a national title and two playoff appearances. Cooper Bateman (one career start) is the only candidate whos thrown a pass in college and hes competing with David Cornwell and Blake Barnett.Saban said there isnt a clear front-runner going into camp.Somebodys got to win that job, he said. Somebodys got to win the team. That hasnt necessarily happened yet.The offenses and seasons for teams like Auburn, Missouri and South Carolina sputtered with quarterback issues last season. LSUs SEC title bid stalled when even Leonard Fournette couldnt override an inconsistent passing game.A significant exception is Texas A&M, which appears to have solved its QB dilemma with Knights transfer from Oklahoma after two former five-star passers left the program. Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin wasnt interested in bringingg in a graduate transfer during their initial conversation, but then Kyler Murray and Kyle Allen left the program. LeVeon Bell Womens Jersey. Our conversations changed dramatically after that went down, said Knight, a former Sooners starter who won the starting job in the spring.There has been another influx of five-star QBs like Mississippis Shea Patterson and Georgias Jacob Eason, who is challenging returning starter Greyson Lambert for the job. They were the two top rated quarterbacks nationally in the 247Sports composite rankings. Alabamas Barnett was one of the top quarterback recruits last year.Heres a snapshot of some of the other quarterback situations:- Floridas expected to start Luke Del Rio, a former Alabama walk on who transferred to Oregon State before returning to the SEC.- Kentuckys Drew Barker, Vanderbilts Kyle Shurmur and Missouris Drew Lock all are expected to start after logging time as starters last season.- South Carolinas Perry Orth is facing competition from mid-year enrollee Brandon McIlwain.- Mississippi State is trying to replace the programs most prolific passer, Dak Prescott. Its a four-man competition among sophomores Nick Fitzgerald and Elijah Staley, junior Damian Williams and freshman Nick Tiano.- Auburn might turn to another junior college transfer in John Franklin III since Jeremy Johnson and Sean White both struggled as starters. That contributed to the Tigers disappointing season after being widely projected as SEC contenders.Newton and Nick Marshall wound up leading Auburn to national championship games straight from the JUCO ranks. Alabamas Jake Coker and Blake Sims thrived in their lone seasons as starters.Maybe from that group of new guys, there will be another Newton, Marshall or Johnny Manziel, who enjoyed swift rises to stardom in their first -- and, in Newtons case, only -- season as starter in the SEC.In years past we had these same question marks, Smart said. People arose. Certainly at this time no one knew who Cam Newton was, and he was amazing. Nobody thought they knew what Nick Marshall would do. Nobody thought Blake Sims was going to do it. Nobody gave Jacob Coker a lot of credit either. ' ' '
