Wales star Jamie Roberts has delivered a damning verdict on his performance against opening autumn opponents Australia and says he fully respected head coach Rob Howleys decision to drop him.Roberts has been restored to the Wales midfield for Saturdays Principality Stadium appointment with Japan, when he will win an 85th cap and extend a 45-Test midfield partnership with fellow British and Irish Lion Jonathan Davies.And the 30-year-old Harlequins centre is determined to bounce back after paying a hefty and unfamiliar price for Wales 32-8, five-try Wallabies defeat earlier this month by losing his place when they took on -- and beat -- Argentina six days ago.I could think of a few four-letter expletives to describe how I played against Australia, Roberts said. The hardest thing was probably trying to find a reason why, but it was nothing more and nothing less than a bad day at the office.I pride myself on consistency of performance, especially defensively, but it was a disappointing day personally and for the side. I certainly didnt deserve to play last weekend.Having spoken to Rob after the Australia game, I fully respected his decision. Its the nature of what we do. Its a competitive squad here, and we know if we dont perform, you dont deserve to keep the jersey.So I did a bit of soul-searching and certainly had a few sleepless nights, but you learn from it and I am ready and raring to go again this weekend.I walked off the pitch against Australia with a big inkling that I was going to be dropped. I made mistakes -- mistakes I dont normally make -- and that was the hardest thing was trying to find the reason why.I have been playing well this season and came into the camp with confidence. I had a poor performance. I am not over-thinking it.The competition in the squad is strong, especially at centre, and if you dont play well you dont deserve to keep the jersey.That is what drives us all forward, and hopefully thats what will drive me forward this week with a point to prove. Thats what Test rugby is about, and we are all in a better place for it.Roberts was an unused replacement last weekend as Wales edged out the Pumas 24-20, but he has dismissed any notion of Japans Cardiff visit providing him with an opportunity for redemption.Its not a shot at redemption -- it would be selfish to say that -- its about Wales winning and playing my part in that, he added. You learn from it. It has given me a new perspective, given me a kick up the backside, which I hope, when I look back on this season, that I needed. That is the way I am treating it.Wales have beaten Japan eight times in nine Tests, and that domination should continue with something to spare on Saturday, building further momentum ahead of next weeks autumn finale against South Africa.And one of the highlights could be an appearance off the bench by 18-year-old uncapped Ospreys wing Keelan Giles, whose devastating finishing ability and blistering pace have already seen him being mentioned in the same breath as Wales record try-scorer Shane Williams.I cant remember a guy as evasive as Keelan since Shane Williams, said Roberts, continuing the theme. We have had a drill in training when were put up one on one with Keelan, and it has been quite embarrassing.He is a frightening prospect, and I hope he gets a chance to come on and show his worth and show his potential. He is a humble lad and he knows this is a big opportunity for him. He has the potential to cause carnage. Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey . The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN. Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. Jay Bouwmeester Jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.nhlbluesauthority.com/authentic-jaden-schwartz-blues-jersey/ .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Magnus Paajarvi Jersey . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home. Colton Parayko Jersey . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. WASHINGTON -- Colorado rookie pitcher Jeff Hoffman will never be accused of easing his way into the major leagues.After a rough debut last Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, Hoffman showed progress on Friday night, keeping the Rockies close during his six innings before the Washington Nationals scored four runs in the seventh and held on for an 8-5 victory.After allowing seven runs -- six earned -- in four innings against the NL Central-leading Cubs, Hoffman (0-2) allowed four runs -- three earned -- against Washington, the first-place team in the NL East.He gave up some runs early and really fought to get through six. Putting down that sixth inning I think was a nice step for him, manager Walt Weiss said. Hes got a good arm. I like what I see from him the second time out here.Jayson Werth and Daniel Murphy hit solo homers and drove in two runs each, and Gio Gonzalez earned his 100th career victory for Washington.Next up for the 23-year-old Hoffman: the Los Angeles Dodgers, who sit atop the NL West.I feel really grateful for the opportunity, said Hoffman, who was acquired from the Blue Jays in the trade for Troy Tulowitzki. I feel like they pulled me up at a good time to test me and to test our team.Hoffman allowed six hits and four walks, while striking out three.If I could take one thing away, I think I did a decent job of limiting all the damage, he said. I got out of that bases loaded with no outs (in the fourth) with only one run, so I thought I did a decent job there.Gonzalez (9-9) threw six innings and allowed two runs and four hits with one walk and five strikeouts.Closer Mark Melancon retired Christhian Adames for the final out for his 37th save. Melancon entered the game shortly after Nick Hundley hit a three-run homer off Shawn Kelley to pull the Rockies within three.Colorados Ryan Raburn was 2 for 2 with a double and two runs scored, wwhile Hundley was 3 for 4 with his seventh homer and four RBI.ddddddddddddMurphy gave the Nationals a 4-2 lead in the fifth with his team-leading 25th homer. The solo blast gave the Nationals second baseman 500 career RBI.Nationals rookie Trea Turner led off multiple innings with an infield single and his speed caused the Rockies to commit three errors. Turner stole his 16th base and scored two runs.The Nationals blew the game open with a four-run seventh off reliever Matt Carasiti, highlighted by a two-run triple by Bryce Harper.Hasnt been in great counts, Weiss said of Carasiti, who saw his ERA climb to 12.27. Not commanding his fastball, and falling behind hitters.WELCOME TO THE SHOW:The Rockies recalled INF Stephen Cardullo from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, marking the first time the 28-year-old has been on an active major league roster. He went 0 for 3 with a walk. Cardullo played four years of independent ball -- where he was named MVP of the Canadian-American Association in 2015 -- before signing a minor league deal with the Rockies in January.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: 2B D.J. LeMahieu participated in the pregame workout, but was held out a third straight game with a wrist injury. Weiss said that barring any issues from the workout, he anticipates LeMahieu returning to the lineup Saturday. LeMahieu entered play Friday second in the National League with a .344 average.UP NEXTRockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (8-7, 5.07 ERA) will look to build off his best start of the season when he takes the mound Saturday against the Nationals and RHP A.J. Cole (0-1, 5.14 ERA). De La Rosa threw a career-high tying eight innings and allowed two runs and four hits with one walk and six strikeouts in an 11-4 win over the Cubs on Aug. 21.
