In England coach Eddie Jones mind New Zealand control the world of rugby but says the All Blacks are just three percent better than the chasing pack and insists they do have weaknesses.England arent due to meet the All Blacks until 2018 but if they continue their rich vein of form then a number of Jones squad are likely to travel with the British & Irish Lions on the New Zealand tour next June.The All Blacks saw off Argentina on Saturday to make it 14 wins on the trot and currently sit atop of the ranking. But Jones says they can be usurped as the worlds best side and believes they are just three percent better than the rest.They [New Zealand] are good, Jones said, speaking on behalf of Mitsubishi Motors as they announced a new partnership with England Rugby. Theyre bloody good. But they are beatable. Like every team, they are beatable.This three percent theory is born from his time at the Brumbies where in his first season in charge they finished tenth. After spending the close-season poring over the statistics behind the poor campaign, he found his side were just the smallest of margins off the leading teams.Thats always stayed with me, people say its 15/20 percent but its not there are small differences, Jones said. If you look at Argentina at the weekend and if they do one or two things differently at crucial times of the game and that result would have been a lot closer.Fitness and ball retention are two areas Jones feels his England team can improve on and he has spent the close season working on developing his three-man coaching team of Neal Hatley, Steve Borthwick and Paul Gustard.He has brought in some of Great Britains top backroom staff to relay their experiences of Rio 2016 and taking a more wide-ranging view over the current state of coaching in rugby, he feels New Zealand have got the right model of developing rugby brains of the future.New Zealand control the world, Jones said. They control every bit of rugby, every law thats changed, New Zealand drive it.They control rugby in so many different countries: in Japan, they are about it control it in Scotland again, the succession plan is already there in place. Wales they control it, Ireland and Georgia. They are a smart country.He added: They develop their coaches in New Zealand; they coach to Super Rugby level, become successful, go overseas and coach the northern hemisphere.So they get a full round of education. They come back to New Zealand; they are ready to coach the All Blacks. Steve Hansen and Graham Henry both had stints in Wales which rounded off their coaching experience.Theres no coincidence in the fact that New Zealand have become a better all-round team. Now their set-piece is second to none.English coaches need to get that other bit of the game which is in the southern hemisphere, which is the unstructured rugby, the organised chaos.Jones was at Sandy Park on Sunday to assess Billy Vunipolas early season form and believes hes racing in the direction of developing into a world-class player as is Owen Farrell. He feels they are setting the benchmark to the rest of their England team-mates.While the All Blacks will be lying in wait in 2018, Jones immediate attention is on the autumn Test series. He is due to confirm his Elite Player Squad on September 30 and will then whittle that down to a 32-man squad to go into a Brighton camp in early October.England will then face South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia over four weekends and if they triumph in each Test then they will have gone a whole calendar year unbeaten. But Jones does not want his team to focus on that target but instead on match-by-match improvement.Our motivation is just to get better, Jones said. We want to be the number one team in the world, New Zealand are head of the pack at the moment but theyre beatable, they have flaws in their game. Wholesale Adidas Nmd Shoes China .

Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. DETROIT -- Ian Kennedy knew his good stuff was back by late July. He had nothing to show for it until Monday night, though.The right-hander took three straight no-decisions for the Kansas City Royals while allowing two runs in 19 1/3 innings. He gave up 13 hits and struck out 17, yet his winless streak reached eight starts.Against the Tigers, though, his hard work paid off. Kennedy held Detroit to one run on five hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings to win for the first time since July 26.It was Houston, right? Kennedy said after Kansas Citys 3-1 win. I know it has been a while. You cant really control wins, and I know Ive been giving the team a chance to win, but it is nice to finish one off with a W.J.D. Martinez hit a solo homer in the seventh, but that was Kennedys only costly mistake.I didnt strike a lot of guys out tonight, but I was getting weak contact, he said. Against a team like Detroit, youll take that. I just left one fastball up to J.D.Three relievers finished, with Kelvin Herrera pitching the ninth for his fifth save.That was a great job by Ian and then by the `pen, Royals manager Ned Yost said. We gave them a couple extra outs in the last two innings, but our guys didnt blink.The Tigers, who came into the game with three everyday starters on the disabled list, lost slugger Miguel Cabrera after four innings to a strained left biceps. Cabrera appeared to injure himself in a first-inning collision with Cheslor Cuthbert at first base, but batted twice before leaving the game.Tigers manager Brad Ausmus didnt think the injury was serious.Well wait and see how he feels tomorrow, Ausmus said. But I wouldnt be surprised if he tells me hes fine and he wants to play.Chasing a playoff spot, the Tigers need Cabrera to return quickly. They are missing center fielder Cameron Maybin, third baseman Nick Castellanos and shortstop Jose Iglesias, along with starting pitchers Jordan Zimmermann and Mike Pelfrey.Injuries are a part of the game, and were not going to bury our faces in our sand, Ausmus said. We cant do anything but come back tomorrow.Daniel Norris (1-1) took the loss, allowing two runs -- one earned -- in 5 1/3 innings. He gave up six hits and walked four while striking out one. He also made the error that led to the unearned run.Thats probably the worst Ive felt on the mound in a long time, at least in terms of mechanics, he said. Youve got to grind things out and last as long as you can, and I just hoped I would figure something out along the way.Paulo Orlando started the game with a four-pitch walk, then went to third when Norris threw away Cuthberts infield single, leading to the collision with Cabrera as he reached for the ball.dddddddddddd With one out, Eric Hosmer hit a line drive to deep left-center, and though Tyler Collins ran it down, Orlando scored easily on the sacrifice fly.Kansas City added to the lead in the sixth. With one out, Alex Gordon doubled and went to third on Norris wild pitch. After a walk to Alcides Escobar put runners at the corners, Alex Wilson came in to pitch and Raul Mondesi laid down a safety squeeze.Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who had replaced Cabrera at first base, fielded the bunt cleanly but hesitated before making a play, giving Mondesi an RBI single.Raul put that bunt in a perfect spot, Yost said. They didnt have a chance to get the runner at the plate.Martinez made it 2-1 with his homer in the seventh -- his second in two days and the 101st of his career. Casey McGehee singled with two outs, bringing Peter Moylan out of the Royals bullpen.James McCann hit an infield single, but pinch-hitter Mike Aviles popped out to end the inning.The Royals added an insurance run in the ninth on Lorenzo Cains RBI single off Blaine Hardy.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: LHP Jason Vargas, out since July 2015 after Tommy John surgery, will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas this week. Vargas is scheduled to pitch three innings Wednesday, but there is no timeline for a possible return to the majors.Tigers: Pelfrey, sidelined since Aug. 1 with a back strain, will not be activated from the DL when he becomes eligible on Tuesday. He has only progressed as far as throwing on the side, but hes planning on a tougher workout Friday. Once he can throw off a mound, Pelfrey is expected to make at least one rehab start before returning to the rotation.EJECTIONThe Tigers, already short-handed after Cabreras injury, lost Collins in the bottom of the eighth when he was ejected by plate umpire Dan Iassogna for arguing a called third strike. Andrew Romine, the last position player available, replaced Collins in center field for the ninth.UP NEXTThe teams continue their three-game series Tuesday, with aces Danny Duffy (9-1, 2.82 ERA) and Justin Verlander (12-6, 3.42) squaring off. Verlander is 22-8 with a 3.21 ERA in 40 career starts against the Royals, giving him the most wins against Kansas City of any active pitcher. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
