Unaccustomed to being finals failures, Sydney Roosters say they are not motivated by the chance to spoil the playoff hopes of their NRL rivals as the Tricolours seek to salvage something from their wreckage of a season.After three successive minor premierships and the 2013 title, the Roosters will miss the finals for the first time under coach Trent Robinson.They face Brisbane at Allianz Stadium in the opening match of round 21 on Thursday night - the first of a number of finals contenders they meet over the final six games of the regular season.The Roosters face Penrith, North Queensland, St George Illawarra, Cronulla and the Broncos again over the final third of the regular season and have the opportunity to put a dent in the finals hopes of every side with a win.The Roosters wobbled on their way to the 2013 finals with a penultimate round loss to Gold Coast, who missed the playoffs that year and played the role of spoiler with the title hopes of the Tricolours.But Robinson said that wasnt the focus for his side.It is a poor motivation to get into if you are focused on being an annoyance to other teams, you are putting it in the wrong place, Robinson said on Wednesday.That might be the secondary result but you need to be the best team you can be.If that is your focus then you are going to play some good footy.If your primary focus is to be annoying then you wont progress very far and you wont be a good team in the future.Robinson did concede the 15th placed Roosters would love to finish above 13th placed arch-rivals South Sydney, who have won five games as opposed to the Tricolours three.That is always of benefit to a Roosters team but we are both fighting for our own form at the moment, he said.Broncos coach Wayne Bennett is surprised at the Roosters lowly ladder position ahead of the sides first meeting their year and their first clash since Brisbanes 31-12 win in last years preliminary final at Suncorp Stadium.It does defy their team. They have quality players and are playing fair football but the results havent been going their way. We have a big task on our hands tomorrow night, Bennett said.Brisbanes task was made more difficult by the withdrawal of star forward Matt Gillett on Wednesday.He failed a fitness test on the shoulder he injured in State of Origin II.Fellow Queensland forwards Sam Thaiday and Josh McGuire are missing for the visitors due to suspension. Jaydn SuA and Herman Eseese come into the Brisbane 17.The Roosters are without Jared Waerea-Hargreaves due to a knee injury. Dale Copley comes into the Roosters 17 for his first match against his former side.KEY STATS* The Roosters have now lost six straight matches for the first time this season and the first time since their wooden spoon season of 2009* The Roosters have the worst completion rate in the competition (71.7 per cent)* Despite their form slump, losing six of their last eight, the Broncos average a try for every 9.2 tackles they have inside their opponents 20m line, the NRLs best red zone ratioSource: Fox Sports Stats Mike Hughes Womens Jersey . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. Devante Downs Womens Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. http://www.cheapvikingsjerseys.net/colby-gossett-womens-jersey/ . After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. Cyber Monday Vikings Jerseys . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Ade Aruna Womens Jersey . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. NEW YORK -- CP3 mimicked giving CPR on a night that looked like lots of laughs for Los Angeles.Funny turned to fiery by the end, as an enraged Doc Rivers was thrown out as his team blew one in Brooklyn.Sean Kilpatrick scored 31 of his career-high 38 points after the third quarter and the Nets stopped a seven-game losing streak with a 127-122 double-overtime victory over the Clippers on Tuesday night.The Clippers started the game without Blake Griffin, ended it without Rivers and dropped their third straight game by coughing up an 18-point lead while not showing enough respect for the game in their coachs mind.We were walking around like we done something and that bothers me because weve done (nothing). We havent done (anything), Rivers said. For us to walk around against a team, that to me is playing their hearts out every night just to win one game, us to walk around like we done something, it bothers me on a basketball level.Chris Paul had 26 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, but the best guard on the floor in crunch time was Kilpatrick, who also had a career-best 14 rebounds.Brook Lopez added 27 points for the Nets, who trailed 86-68 with 2 minutes left in the third quarter.We were down 20, then next minute you know we just kept chipping it down, Kilpatrick said. Then next minute I knew we were down four, and I was like yo, its on now. Its game time.DeAndre Jordan had 21 points and 23 rebounds for the Clippers, who rested Griffin, their leading scorer, ahead of a game in Cleveland on Thursday.Anybody in the league knows, they say, you mess with the game and like you said, the basketball gods got us, Paul said.The Clippers started 39-year-old Paul Pierce, who had played in just two games, in place of Griffin. Pierce had played just 17 minutes all season but logged 29 minutes in this one, such an increase in workload that Paul pushed down on his chest a few times on the court at one point, pretending to give CPR after Pierce fell on his back while being fouled on a dunk attempt.The Clippers were serious by the end.Rivers was tossed late in the first OT, becoming enraged and having tto be held back by Clippers players and assistants as he tried to get at referee Ken Mauer.dddddddddddd. Rivers appeared upset about a call on the other end of the floor, walking out of the coaching box and almost all the way to the Nets bench.Mauer said crossing over midcourt was an automatic technical and the second was for language and behavior.Rivers missed Kilpatricks masterful finish, which he capped with a three-point play with 13.5 seconds left.The Nets, still playing without point guard Jeremy Lin, ended a skid that started with a 127-95 loss at the Clippers on Nov. 14.Los Angeles had lost in Detroit and Indiana in its last two games, managing just 70 points Sunday against the Pacers in its lowest-scoring game in 13 years. Rivers pointed to some defensive lapses as the bigger concern, and they certainly struggled to stay in front of Kilpatrick, who was just 3 for 14 after three quarters.TIP-INSClippers: J.J. Redick made a 3-poiner in his 75th straight game, tying one of Stephen Currys streaks for sixth-longest in NBA history. Currys NBA-record 157-game streak was snapped earlier this season.Nets: Coach Kenny Atkinson still couldnt give a timetable on Lin, saying the point guard who missed his 12th straight game with a strained left hamstring was working hard and progressing as planned.DOC IS JUST A NICKNAMEThe Clippers have increased their spending on biometrics this season, and Rivers -- first name Glenn -- was asked if he relied on that to determine Griffin would sit.I clearly didnt, Im not smart enough to use biometrics, Rivers said. But the people we hired did, and they told me biometrically that this would be a good day for him to rest.UP NEXTClippers: Visit Cleveland on Thursday night. The Clippers have lost the last four meetings.Nets: Host Milwaukee on Thursday night, opening a home-and-home series against former Nets star and coach Jason Kidds Bucks, who have won the last five meetings.---Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoney Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store ' ' '
