Essex 358 and 163 and 4 lead Sussex 448 (Jordan 131, Joyce 92, Archer 73, Napier 5-114) by 73 runsScorecard At some stage around 11.15 on the second morning, Chris Jordan ambled over - as Chris Jordan does - located the scruff of this games neck and promptly grabbed it. He has not let go since, picking up the final four first-innings wickets in double-quick time, then scoring a maiden first-class century to steer Sussex from choppy waters (a collapse of 6 for 49) to a handsome lead of 90.When Essex batted for a second time, Nick Browne turned Jordans fourth ball straight to square leg, and he summoned the last of his seemingly boundless energy to end a dangerously pesky third-wicket stand, with Dan Lawrence trapped in front. Even his withdrawal from the attack had a touch of class, as Tom Westley feathered his replacement David Wiese behind first ball. He will return on Sunday, rested and raring for Essexs final six wickets.If he can find those wickets, Sussex - even as the old lags Ryan ten Doeschate and James Foster shared a streaky but vital 52 late on, extending Essexs lead to 73 - have the chance to kickstart a curious season that sees them unbeaten after nine games having won just one. As long as Leicestershire fail to beat Derbyshire, Essex need a draw to go back past the new leaders Kent. The chase for the single promotion spot is set to be a barnburner, and this - a fine match on a fair, fast-scoring pitch - is crucial for both sides.Jordans was a magnificent, measured innings that eked every run out of Sussexs tail. In Jofra Archer and Danny Briggs, Jordan found a pair of able deputies, sharing 140, then 92, and still he found 43 thereafter. When the more extravagant Archer fell early for a superb 73, caught behind off David Masters, Jordan simply regrouped, stuck his head down and strolled along, adding a patient 40 - the last four of which came from a delicate sweep off Ashar Zaidi - to his overnight 59 to sit tantalisingly short of his maiden century as he settled down for lunch.Was he nervous? Was he heck. Nerves, its fair to say, are not Jordans bag; angsty sorts do not death bowlers make. I wasnt too worried! he laughed, I just had to keep a level head and if it was meant to be it would be… I knew that if I kept doing what Id been doing Id get there in the end, although it ended up being a bit streaky! Streaky it was, as he inside-edged the fourth delivery of the first over, his 164th, after the break to fine leg to move to 103. Ah, it would have been nice to bring it up in style but that wasnt meant to be. Id worked hard to get to that stage, so maybe I deserved a bit of luck!He had, as that was his first false stroke. Graham Napier, who took the wicket of Briggs for a composed and fun-filled 49 an over later (before mopping up the rest to finish with five wickets), noted that Jordan played like a man who has scored 100 hundreds, not just one.The innings tempo was the key, as Jordan allowed those he trusted - particularly Archer, but also Briggs (who drove beautifully having joined him still 45 behind) - to play their strokes, before accelerating himself. There were two extremely handsome sixes, straight and over extra cover - when joined by the injured Harry Finch and limited Steve Magoffin. His strokeplay in front and behind point stood out, but so did his ability to find a single; vitally, Jordan tired Essex out.When he finally fell, carting to cow corner, a clinic in revitalising a lame and tame tail came to an end. Im pretty happy with the tempo that I batted at, Jordan reflected, I came in when we were in a bit of trouble but I took one ball at a time, trying to build partnerships with anyone who was out there with me. Credit to Jofra and Briggs who put on key partnerships with me.At one stage, when Wiese prized out Westley, who lost his trademark fluency after an attractive start, it appeared Jordans efforts would be rewarded with a day off on Sunday. But thanks to ten Doeschate and Foster, back Essex will charge. Ten Doeschate, particularly, played within himself, weathering a barrage of bouncers - and verbals, some of which were returned, with interest (and interest from the umpires) - from Archer, who had earlier dismissed Jaik Mickleburgh lbw.Jordan felt the pitch so free-scoring that Sussex would chance their arm to chase upwards of 200, but Napier knew Essex required - especially after their lanky-looking tail was so easily cleaned up on Friday morning - more of the same from ten Doeschate and Foster. Were going to have to bat out most of the day tomorrow, he said bullishly, ahead of his final day on his home ground. We cannot give them anything in the first session. Dan Girardi Jersey . The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. Alex Killorn Jersey . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. http://www.wholesalelightningjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-slater-koekkoek-jersey .

Peter OMahony has handed Ireland a big autumn internationals boost by finally recovering from his year-long knee ligament injury.The 27-year-old flanker will take a seat on Munsters bench for Saturdays Guinness PRO12 clash with Zebre at Thomond Park.OMahony tore knee ligaments in Irelands 24-9 Rugby World Cup pool victory over France on October 11 last year, and has since endured a torrid, truncated recovery.The uncompromising back-rower now has the chance to end all those frustrations however, and in the process expand head coach Joe Schmidts options for the four-match November Test schedule.Following the successful rehabilitation of an ACL rupture sustained in Irelands historic World Cup win over France last October, OMahony will hope to see some game time after being named amongst the replacements, read Munsters statement.Simon Zebo has overcome a rib injury to start at full-back too for Munster this weekend, in further positive news for Ireland.Boss Schmidts Ireland side will face New Zealand twice in three weeks across a hugely testing November series, so wiill doubtless need as many frontline stars available as possible.ddddddddddddOMahony himself cannot wait to get back into full swing with his province. Ireland open their autumn run by taking on New Zealand in Chicago on November 5, with OMahonys return potentially proving very timely.I think I have dealt quite well with the injury, not just around the squad but at home as well, OMahony told the Irish Examiner. It was a long-term injury and I prepared myself for that but the last six to eight weeks were tough, just being on the edge and nearly there.Training on your own is tough because its a team sport. For the last few weeks Ive been lacing up the boots to go out and do a full session which was exciting.It will take me another few weeks (to regain full match sharpness). Theres only so much you can train, how much you can simulate in training.So it will be a case of getting out there and throwing myself about and seeing how I get on.
