LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Fortified home: Clermont maintained their three-year unbeaten home record after defeating Leinster 15-12By Gavin MortimerIT’S THE half-way stage of the Heineken Cup and for the French clubs things are looking good. With three of the six pool matches gone, only Biarritz of the seven Top 14 teams look to have no hope of qualifying for the last eight. Their 22-14 defeat away at Connacht last weekend leaves the Basque outfit third in pool 6, nine points behind leaders Harlequins and three adrift of Connacht.In Pool 1, Racing Metro have dragged themselves back into contention with a 19-9 defeat of Edinburgh. The Parisians are now third, two points behind Munster and Saracens, and the Londoners must travel to the French capital for their penultimate group game.Pool Two could go down to the wire with Toulouse travelling to Welford Road on the weekend of January 19/20 to take on Leicester in the final group game. Following their easy victory over the Ospreys on Saturday, Toulouse are now three points clear of the Tigers who, like their French rivals, picked up a bonus point at the weekend by scoring five tries in their win over Treviso.Can Toulouse go all the way?Both Toulouse and Leicester hit the road this weekend with the reigning French champions expecting a frenetic encounter at the Liberty Stadium. “At Swansea, we’re going to be confronted by almost a sevens-style rugby,” said coach Guy Noves. “As a result, we’re probably going to field a very defensive team.” To that end it’s expected that captain Thierry Dusautoir will make his long-awaited return from injury on Saturday – two months after injuring his knee in the win over Treviso – and veteran hooker William Servat is also likely to start against the Welsh side. In Pool Four Castres have given themselves a glimmer of hope of qualifying for the last eight by winning 9-6 away at Glasgow. It wasn’t a pretty encounter, but the win means Castres are now in second spot, six points behind Ulster, whom they host in the last game of the group. In the meantime Castres welcome Glasgow to France this weekend with confidence beginning to grow in the squad. “We’re starting to understand the Heineken Cup,” explained captain Matthias Rolland, whose side had to overcome wintery conditions in Scotland. “You have to know how to deal with distractions and stay concentrated. Two or three years ago, the team would have been destabilised, too used to its own comforts, but now we have the experience to deal with it.”Pool Five witnessed the clash of the Titans on Sunday with Clermont defending their three-year unbeaten home record against Leinster. It was the first defeat in 17 Heineken Cup matches for the Irishmen, a 15-12 loss that leaves them five points behind Clermont. But now Leinster get to welcome Clermont to Dublin on Sunday in a match that Julien Bonnaire expects to be ferocious. “We’ve got to maintain the same level of aggression and desire if we’re to get a result at the Aviva Stadium,” said the Clermont flanker, named man of the match after Sunday’s victory.

Montpellier, five points behind and in second, managed their first away win in two seasons of Heineken Cup rugby after beating Cardiff 35-24 on the road, and coach Fabien Galthie believes his side are now adjusting to the demands of the competition. “To put 35 points on Cardiff is fantastic,” he said. “Montpellier is a young club where everything is still to be written.”As for Toulon, they won ugly in Sale but it was a victory that all but seals their place in the last eight. This weekend they host the Sharks in the return fixture, and next month Cardiff must travel to the Cote d’Azur. Win both of those games and Toulon are guaranteed of finishing top of their pool regardless of the outcome of their last match away in Montpellier.
In April 2017, more than 20 state business regulators issued regulatory enforcement orders to subsidiaries of Ocwen Financial Corp to address “mishandling of consumer escrow accounts and a deficient financial condition,” according to an April news release from the North Carolina Office of the Commissioner of Banks.Since September 28, Ocwen has announced reaching resolutions with a number of states, but Thursday morning the company added two more, bringing Ocwen to a total of 17 resolutions.Additionally, Ocwen announced under the “Wholesale Forward Lending” section of the 8K filing that they have decided to exit the wholesale forward lending business, agreeing to sell certain assets related to the business to an undisclosed buyer.

State regulatory agencies in Indiana and Nevada either withdrew or allowed their respective cease and desist orders to expire.“Ocwen is pleased to have reached resolutions with two additional states, Alabama and Minnesota, to resolve regulatory actions brought against the Company, bringing the total number of states where we have reached a resolution to 17,” said John Lovallo, Spokesperson for Ocwen.As previously reported, the agreements terms include details such as Ocwen not acquiring any new residential mortgage servicing rights until April 30, 2018, developing plans to transition to a new servicing system, and not engaging an auditor to perform an escrow review of between 8,000 and 10,000 loans. However, the release also notes that Ocwen did not admit or deny liability in these settlements and none of the agreements contain any monetary fines or penalties.If the company successfully enters into agreements with the remaining states, they may contain some or all of the terms mentioned above—but there is no assurance that will happen.“We continue to work cooperatively with the remaining 14 state regulatory agencies and two state attorneys general to reach acceptable resolutions,” Lovallo said.To read the 8K filing, click here.
