    As Australia and New Zealand prepare to resume hostilities in this weekends Four Nations rugby league final, history, form and the UBET odds all point heavily in favour of a Kangaroos victory.The Kiwis will be armed with a strong weapon though - albeit a weapon they would prefer not to have.Tragedy can invoke some very powerful emotions and in times of hardship, people are often inspired to achieve goals that may otherwise seem forlorn.The recent earthquake in New Zealand has shocked the world, especially the Kiwi rugby league team, but this will provide additional motivation as they attempt to lift their nations flagging spirits.?Former New Zealand captain Gary Freeman told ESPN that the tragedy is sure to provide added inspiration for the players but they must be able to handle it correctly.When you throw so much emotion into this game it can go against you, Freeman said.I think theyll be motivated more from last weeks poor performance against Scotland.The boys would know themselves that they can play better.It would seem that the Kiwis have little to be confident about heading into the game - they have already faced the Kangaroos on three occasions this year; losing all three, conceding 56 points and scoring just 14 across 240 minutes of football.I always remember an old coach of mine Warren Ryan saying, the more losses you have, the closer you are to your first win, Freeman said.This is the number one game, this is the game the Kiwis have to win and theyll have to step up to the mark.The Kiwis understand that a win over old rivals Australia will provide a small slice of happiness to the grief-stricken people in their homeland, but Freeman believes pride in their own performance will be motivation enough.I think theyll be motivated from last weeks poor performance against Scotland. The boys would know themselves that they can play better, Freeman told ESPN.As an ex-player, we drew some games and lost some games against opposition that we knew we shouldve beaten and the following week wed stood up to be counted.People only remember the last game and the only game theyre going to remember out of this whole tournament is this final game.Lewis Brown, Jordan Rapana and Joseph Tapine originate from the earthquake affected areas and although their families are safe and well, Freeman expects them to lead from the front for the Kiwis at Anfield.But the man affectionately known as Wiz believes the biggest advantage New Zealand have is psychological; the Kiwis have won on three of the past four occasions when meeting Australia in a final.However, sport doesnt always go to script and in what has been the year of the underdog, New Zealand will privately consider themselves a serious chance of reclaiming the Four Nations title.Absolutely, the Aussies will be trying to rectify, but if Ireland can beat the All Blacks then we can beat Australia. Freeman said.In reality, the Kiwis are probably fortunate just to be in the final - their only win of the tournament was a less than convincing one point victory in their opening match against England.New Zealand have limped into the final after an 18-all draw with minnows Scotland; an embarrassing result which was ultimately the difference between preparing for the final or preparing for a flight home.It wasnt their greatest match against Scotland, but sometime that can lead you into a false sense of security when youre the Australian side, Freeman told ESPN.Have the Aussies peaked too early? Have they produced their best game one before the big one? Theyve done that previously.You have to remember, New Zealand are the world champions and they will stand up to be counted.In the Kangaroos camp though, confidence couldnt be higher; they have stormed into the final undefeated and racked up an impressive 104 points while conceding just 38; but Freeman pointed out that it will mean absolutely nothing unless they come out on top in the final 80 minutes of the tournament.It doesnt really matter whats happened before. Its whats going to happen this weekend, Freeman said.All of the people back home in New Zealand will be up watching so theres a lot on the line for our boys; theres a lot on the line in this game.A strong start is vital to New Zealands chances and how they harness their emotions in the opening 20 minutes could prove decisive in the outcome of the match.New Zealand captain Jesse Bromwich identified the 2013 World Cup final as an example of why it is so important for his side to be on their game from the opening whistle.Australia ambushed the Kiwis on that occasion by jumping out to a healthy halftime advantage before going on with the job in the second half to thrash New Zealand 34-2 at Old Trafford.If theres anything weve learned, its probably about our start. They came out really hard there, blew us off the park really early and we just couldnt find our feet after that, New Zealand captain Jesse Bromwich said.Its a big ask against Australia, theyve got a very big forward pack.

    Sydney FC have made their pitch to host the FFA Cup final, confident they can draw a big crowd and arguing its only fair the harbour city have a turn after Melbourne held last years decider.The Sky Blues will learn their opponent on Tuesday night after Melbourne City clash with defending champions Melbourne Victory in a derby semi-final at AAMI Park.After that, one of Australias biggest interstate rivalries will heat up as the winner vies with Sydney to host the showpiece event on November 29 or 30.A decade has passed since the Sky Blues last played a final at their Allianz Stadium home ground, where they won the 2006 A-League grand final.Now into their seventh season without silverware, the club is eager to break the drought in front of home fans.Chief executive Tony Pignata believed Allianz Stadium could draw a midweek crowd upwards of 18,000 if Football Federation Australia (FFA) priced tickets more reasonably than last year, when a price hike was blamed for the paltry 15,098 that attended AAMI Park.Sydney people love a big event, and Im expecting a good crowd if the final is at Allianz, Pignata told AAP.We havent had a home game the whole FFA Cup this season as well.Melbourne had the final last year and Adelaide has also had it, so I think its Sydneys turn now.Our fans deserve a final.Whatever arguments the respective clubs put forward, its all a numbers game for FFA.FFA will take into consideration a wide range of factors, including a venue that will allow the highest number of football fans to attend the match live and maximise the viewership and entertainment for Fox Sports, FFA chief executive David Gallop said in a statement.Both City and Victory will therefore be eager to attract large numbers on Tuesday in arguably the biggest game of the tournaments three-year history.Club officials are tipping a crowd between 15,000 and 20,000, which would likely break the FFA Cup record of 16,142 set atHindmarsh Stadium where Adelaide defeated Perth in the 2014 final.Sydney captain Alex Brosque said hed be happiest if FFA picked names out of a hat.It would probably be the fairest, Brosque told AAP.But obviously wed love to have a grand final in Sydney, which hasnt happened for a very long time.

    METAIRIE, La. -- Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro, who early this season lambasted New Orleans defense for canceling out Drew Brees brilliance, no longer sees it that way.Weve gotten better every game, Vaccaro asserted after practice Wednesday as the Saints prepared to meet the Los Angeles Rams this Sunday. The stats, obviously, on total defense might not say it, but if you look up certain things, theres an improvement.Indeed, recent numbers back Vaccaro up. After allowing opposing offenses to pile up nearly 420 yards per game through their first five games, New Orleans has yielded an average of 346.2 yards during the past five. The club still ranks 27th in total defense, but thats up from dead last after Week 1 and as bad as 31st through the seasons first several games.When Rams rookie quarterback Jared Goff, the NFLs top draft choice last spring, makes his first road start in the Superdome on Sunday, hell face a defense that has held opposing quarterbacks to 234 yards passing or less three times since Week 7. The Saints are coming off their best defensive performance yet, having held Carolina to 223 net yards and just 173 through the air.Our defense is playing really well, Saints right tackle Zach Strief said. Those guys have bailed us out so many times the last few weeks.After giving up 34 or more points in four of their first five games, the Saints have given up fewer than 24 points per game in the five weeks since -- even as their offense has given up both an interception and fumble return for touchdowns, and as their special teams unit had a kick blocked for a defensive 2-point conversion.New Orleans is also getting more turnovers lately, and has climbed into a tie for 10th in the NFL in takeaways with 15 -- six on interceptions and nine on fumble recoveries.They definitely have changed some things, Goff said when asked if hes noticed an evolution of New Orleans defense when he compares recent game video to clips from early in the season.One of those changes involves New Orleans base formation, now comprised of four linemen, two linebackers, three safeties and two cornerbacks. In three of the past four games, one of the two linebackers has been Dennell Ellerbe, who missed the first six games of the season with a quadriceps injury. Since his return, hes been one of the top playmakers on the team while handling wide-ranging responsibilities, from blitzing to covering tight ends.Hes just a great player. You see him in pass rush. You see him in coverage. He can cover tight ends. He can play the run, Vaccaro said. He literally can do it all. Hes the same Dannell who won the Super Bowl with Baltimore when he was healthy.Ellerbe already has been in on 16 tackles, including two sacks. He also has been credited with four quarterback hits and two passes defended.Meanwhile, the Saints interior line has gotten a boost from the return of rookie tackle Sheldon Rankins, the clubs top draft choice in April, who broke his fibula in training camp. Also back is cornerback Delvin Breaux, who has played two of the past three games since returning from his fractured fibula, which occurred in Week 1.I just feel like we had a few guys go down early that we needed, Ellerbe said. So now that were getting those guys back, were having our full defense back -- the defense that we were supposed to have.Game notes RB Mark Ingram, who left last Thursday nights game at Carolina after being knocked unconscious, was at practice today. He confirmed that he was diagnosed with a concussion, but said he expects to play Sunday. I felt good. I was running fast, I was making my cuts, Ingram said. Im feeling good and looking forward to playing. ... Also practicing Wednesday were left tackle Terron Armstead, who has missed the past two games with a nagging knee injury, and Breaux, who was scratched from the last game after playing the previous two. Breaux has said he expected to return this week, and was only held out last Thursday because the Saints didnt want to unduly stress his recently healed fibula with two games in a five-day span.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Sneakers Australia Online .

Wholesale Sneakers Australia . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. (STATS) -- Rushing for more yards than anyone in the FCS -- and by a wide margin -- could put Chase Edmonds in the running for some national player of the year awards. Yet, that wasnt good enough to get him top honors in the pint-sized Patriot League.Instead, it was Lehigh quarterback Nick Shafnisky who was named the Patriots Player of the Year even though he missed 2 1/2 games and didnt lead the league in passing yards or touchdown passes. Apparently voters felt that the senior dual threat leading Lehigh to a perfect conference record, a 9-2 season overall and a playoff berth outweighed Edmonds seemingly superior statistics.Edmonds, of course, did make the All-Patriot first-team offense after rushing for an FCS-best 1,799 yards, 281 more than second-place Tarik Cohen of North Carolina A&T. A junior who already owns the conferences all-time record with 62 rushing TDs, Edmonds ran for 19 scores this season to finish second in the Subdivision.Shafnisky did run for 10 TDs of his own and threw for 20 in just nine games, having missed time due to a nagging ankle problem. He completed 66.2 percent of his passes for 2,448 yards and rushed for 302 as the Mountain Hawks finished among the top 10 offenses in the FCS with 40.5 points and 491.5 yards per game.Andy Coen is the mastermind of that offense and earned the conferences Coach of the Year honor. Its the second time in 11 seasons at Lehigh that hes won the award.Shafniskys two favorite targets were among five Mountain Hawks named to the first-team offense.

    Pokemon Go, this months hottest sensation, has now made its way to the Alabama?football?program. Randall Spain, a member of the Crimson Tide staff, tweeted a picture of Pikachu on head coach Nick Sabans desk on Monday.Saban was asked about the Pokemon sighting during Tuesdays episode of College Football Live and, based on his response, Saban probably wont be catching them all. In fact, he said he no idea what Pokemon was or why it was on his desk.If you guys knew anything about me, you know how illiterate I am when it comes to social media. You would absolutely know I have no idea what it means, Saban said.ESPNs Paul Finebaum later joked that he had put the Pikachu on his desk.While Saban might profess his ignorance about Pokemon Go, its been a hit on the college football scene this summer. More than a thousand fans showed up at Texas A&Ms Kyle Field?to play. Oklahoma State has used the game as as a recruiting tactic. And Ohio State quarterback J.T.

Nike Shoes Cheap Wholesale . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. The gauntlet of final group stage games continued as South Korean teams Flash Lux and Afreeca Freecs Blue were once again summoned to fight each other in the first match of the day. Flash Lux was crushed yesterday by Europes Rogue, one of the best teams if not the best around. Today, however, they fared no better against Afreeca Freecs Blue, showing that their disappointing performance pointed to a lack of growth compared to other South Korean teams during APEX. Credit must also be given to the outstanding plays from match MVP Jung Recry Taek Hyun from Afreeca.The new patch seems favorable to Phamercy. Ive played Pharah since we were MiG Frost, and Mercy looks to be coming up, so there was enough reason to try it out, said Recry in an interview with Inven Global.Phamercy, the nickname given to the Pharah and Mercy combo, is something thats been around since the beginning of competitive Overwatch, but also died out with the rise of McCree -- who counters Pharah -- while Mercy got pushed out of the healer meta by Ana. On both Lijiang Tower and Kings Row, it was Recrys incredibly bold Pharah Barrages that wiped out four to five people from Flash Lux.ddddddddddddWe focused on shutting down Haksals Genji. ... The team had faith in my mirror matchup Genji, said match MVP Park Saebyelbe Jongryeol from South Korean team LW Blue.Early on in the group stages, South Korean team RuNAWAY knocked Europes REUNITED to the pavement with one of the most renowned Genji players, Kim Haksal Hyojong. Haksal walked away a star but returned to the spotlight only to be crushed by the teamwork of LW Blue. In the end, the better team conquered the better player.RuNAWAY very obviously supports Haksal and relies on him, as he was on Genji for almost the entirety of the four games. LW Blue, on the other hand, only had to prepare against Haksal, with the rest of the dominoes falling in place. LW Blue defeated RuNAWAY 3-1, but the latter still has a chance to make it out of the group stages as they face off against South Korean team Kongdoo Panthera and potentially force a tiebreaker or overtake REUNITED for a place in the quarterfinals.

Cheap Baseball Jerseys Online .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. The world of international soccer gasped Tuesday at the news that Sam Allardyce had been fired as manager of Englands national team after coaching just one match.Allardyce, who was hired July 22 and signed a contract through 2018, was sent packing after he was caught on video advising undercover reporters of crooked ways to get around player-transfer rules. In exchange, he asked the journalists posed as businessmen for a six-figure sum.Allardyce lasted just 67 days as manager of the England team, but that could classify as a lengthy stay compared to some other professional and college coaches whose tenures were fleeting.Sven-Goran Eriksson, soccerEriksson reportedly received a $2 million per year deal to become director of football at Notts County in the summer of 2009, believing the organization would soon be promoted to the Premier League. Large-scale facility investments were planned, and Premier League players Sol Campbell and Kasper Schmeichel joined the club. But Campbell lasted just one match, and Schmeichel was released at the end of the season. Following the clubs takeover the following winter as it sat on the verge of financial collapse, Eriksson resigned after seven months on the job, honorably waiving a multimillion dollar payoff in the process.Brian Clough, soccerClough was one of the top goal scorers in English football history before he moved into the coaching ranks in the mid-1960s. He took over as manager of Leeds United in 1974, a surprising move, considering he had shown disdain for what he considered the teams dirty style of play. Cloughs opinions didnt seem to wane much after he took the job, and he quickly got on the bad side of several top players. After winning just one of his first six matches, Clough was canned by the clubs directors after just 44 days at the helm, despite numerous protests by the clubs fans.Magic Johnson, NBAJohnson found out just how difficult it can be for an NBA star to transition into coaching. Johnson, a 12-time All-Star and three-time league MVP with the Los Angeles Lakers from 1979-91, took over as head coach of his former team late in the 1993-94 season, after Randy Pfund was fired. The Lakers were already thin on talent and lost five of their first six games under Johnson, which prompted him to announce that he would resign at the end of that season. He finished 5-11 as a head coach, returned to the Lakers as a player for the final four months of the 1995-96 campaign and then hung the sneakers up for good.Jerry Tarkanian, NBATark the Shark rose to prominence as head coach of the UNLV basketball team from 1973-92, leading the Runnin Rebels to the NCAA tournament championship in 1990 and three other Final Fours. He decided to take a stab at the NBA and was hired by the San Antonio Spurs prior to the 1992-93 season. Tarkanian lasted just 20 games, however. The Spurs opened with a 9-11 mark, and stress from the job landed Tarkanian in the hospital with chest pains. Players began to rebel against his tactics, and he was dismissed just hours before his 21st game.Billy Donovan, NBADonovan figured it was time to give the NBA a try after he coached Florida to back-to-back NCAA tournament championships in 2006 and 07. He accepted an offer to become head coach of the Orlando Magic in June 2007 but quickly had second thoughts, even with emerging stars such as Dwight Howard and JJ Redick on the roster. Less than a week after signing the deal, Donovan begged the Magic to release him from the contract, and they obliged. Donovan returned to Florida for eight seasons before giving the NBA another look in 2015, when he was hired by the Oklahoma City Thunder.Barry Melrose, NHLMelrose put himself on the map by guiding the Los Angeles Kings to the 1993 Stanley Cup Final in his first season as an NHL head coach. He parlayed that into a 13-year stint as a hockey analyst with ESPN. He then decided to give coaching another try and was hired by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2008. He lasted just 16 games before he was fired, however, in an ending that was reportedly set in motion by Melroses reluctance to give heavy minutes to young star Steven Stamkos. Melrose refused to budge on other issues too and was soon back with ESPN.Lou Holtz, NFLBefore he made a name for himself at Arkansas and Notre Dame, Holtz took aim at the NFL. His sights were sorely off-target, however. Holtz left North Carolina State after four successful seasons to take over as head coach of the New York Jets in 1976, and he inherited aging quarterback Joe Namath. The Jets scored just 26 points in their first four games and were 3-10 when Holtz resignned with one game remaining.dddddddddddd The three wins came against the 2-12 Buffalo Bills (twice) and the 0-14 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Holtz took the head-coaching job at Arkansas the following season and went 60-21-2 in seven seasons with the Razorbacks.Bill Belichick, NFLBelichick will go down as one of the greatest NFL head coaches in history, but he also had one of the shortest stints, as he lasted one day with the New York Jets in early 2000. Belichick had been the Jets assistant head coach and defensive backs coach under Bill Parcells the previous three seasons, so when Parcells retired after the 1999 campaign, Belichick was the natural choice to take over. When he showed up for the news conference to formally announce his hiring, Belichick instead tendered his resignation on a sheet of loose paper that read, I resign as HC of the NYJ. Not long after, he was hired by the New England Patriots, with whom he has since won four Super Bowls.Eddie Stanky, MLBStanky falls into the category of one-and-done coaches, as his tenure with the Texas Rangers lasted one game in 1977. Stanky was a three-time All-Star as a player in the 1940s and 50s, and he served managerial stints with the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago White Sox. He went to the college level and found success with South Alabama but was lured back to the major leagues to replace Frank Lucchesi, who was fired after Texas 31-31 start. The Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 in Stankys debut on July 22, 1977, but homesickness and disenchantment with the changed attitudes of players prompted Stanky to quit the following day and return to South Alabama.Rick Majerus, college basketballMajerus was a five-time Western Athletic Conference coach of the year at Utah during the 1990s. Then he left after the 2003-04 season to focus on his health. He couldnt resist an offer to coach USC the following season, however, and his bubbly personality was on full display at the news conference welcoming him to the school. Five days later, subdued and somber, he announced that his health would not allow him to perform his new duties and resigned. Majerus returned to the bench three years later with Saint Louis, where health issues again sidelined him at the start of the 2012-13 season. He died of heart failure on Dec. 1, 2012, at age 64.Other notable short tenuresBobby Cremins, college basketball:?Cremins decided to remain at Georgia Tech three days after he accepted the head-coaching position at South Carolina in March 1993.Bobby Petrino, NFL:?Petrino resigned 13 games into his first season with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007. He left a note taped on each players locker before returning to the college level at Arkansas.George OLeary, college football:?OLeary left Georgia Tech in 2001 to become head coach at Notre Dame, but inaccuracies in his published biography forced him to resign before he could coach a game with the Irish.Mike Price, college football:?Price was hired at Alabama in December 2002 but never signed the contract, and the university pulled it off the table six months later, after a strip club incident.Wally Backman, MLB:?Backman was promoted to manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks after the 2004 season but was fired four days later, when previous off-the-field issues came to light.George Allen, NFL:?Allen returned to coach the Los Angeles Rams in 1978 but was fired after two preseason games, when team owner Carroll Rosenbloom decided Allen was incapable of adjusting to the new situation.Tim Welsh, college basketball:?Welsh was hired at Hofstra In 2010 but was arrested for driving under the influence 31 days later and resigned.Mike Haywood, college football: Haywood was hired at Pittsburgh shortly after the 2010 season but was fired two weeks later, following his arrest on a felony domestic battery charge.Rollie Massimino, NBA:?Massimino accepted an offer to coach the New Jersey Nets in 1985, but he had a change of heart and never showed up for an introductory news conference the following day. Instead, he remained at Villanova.Eddie Jones, Rugby:?Soon after leading Japan to a stunning World Cup pool-play win against South Africa in 2015, Jones was hired by Stormers, a South African-based Super Rugby team, but he moved on a week later to become Englands national coach.Leroy?Rosenior, soccer:?In 2007, Rosenior was famously fired 10 minutes after being appointed manager of English club Torquay, which was taken over by new owners who decided Rosenior wasnt their man.

On Sunday morning, ahead of the race at Interlagos, he revealed a new set of overalls for this race weekend, sporting the Brazilian flag along the right leg and both arms.Massa wore similar overalls for the Brazil race in 2006, when he won for Ferrari. His second win in Brazil was also for Ferrari two years later, and saw him cross the line as world champion -- only for Lewis Hamilton to gain the position he needed on the final corner to snatch the title away.

Cheap Titans Jerseys Authentic . Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was two tenths of a second off Vettel. "The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. Five-day Tests might be under debate right now, but the last two times before this Test that two seasoned Bengal players played Eden Gardens Tests together five-day Tests werent yet the norm. In 1952-53, when Pankaj Roy and Kohkhan Sen played against Pakistan, there used to be four-day Tests in India. In 1969-70, when Ambar Roy and Subrata Guha played together, India were playing six-day Tests. Forty-seven years later, when Wriddhiman Saha and Mohammed Shami came to bat together, India were still some way from their desired total of 325-330. The two added 35 runs in entertaining fashion to take India to 316 and deflate New Zealands spirits, but this potentially match-sealing partnership between two Bengal players at the home of cricket in Bengal was witnessed by a disappointingly small Saturday crowd.There are reasons for the small turnout. This is festival season and end of the month both at the same time. Salaries are running out, and the newer ones are being saved for Puja shopping, when everyone must have at least new clothes. The two Bengal players dont draw the same emotion from the locals those earlier ones did. Shami migrated to Bengal from Uttar Pradesh only after he was well into his development as a cricketer. Like many folk from UP and Bihar, he did so for employment. And Saha, to quote a local, is not glamaraas enough. The biggest cheer during this Test so far has been for Sourav Ganguly, now the Cricket Association of Bengal president, as he spoke at a lunch-time discussion on day one. Saha cant match the pull of the last Bengal superstar or the charisma of Indias last Test wicketkeeper, but the few that turned up saw their unglamorous wicketkeeper do a job for his team. He does the job by being inconspicuous behind the stumps, and with vital and timely contributions in front.When Saha came in to bat on day one, memories of Kanpur - when he had become part of a collapse that was arrested by Ravindra Jadeja in the end - would have been fresh. When Saha came out to bat here, India had lost three wickets for 13 runs. More importantly, these three wickets had fallen in the lead-up to the new ball becoming available. Trent Boult was ready. Matt Henry was ready. This was a pitch different from the one in Kanpur, where there was no bounce on offer for the quicks. Here there was bounce, some seam, and India were going at well under three an over. India needed to arrest this collapse badly because a scorre 220-230 in the first innings hardly puts any pressure on the team batting second.dddddddddddd And the collapse had to be arrested without getting bogged down, because the new ball might do tricks and New Zealand could have gone flat out with just 10 overs to stumps.Saha attacked dextrously, hitting a six in the last over before the new ball. The shot was selected perfectly. He got one too full from Jeetan Patel and wristily lofted it over cow corner. In Kanpur Saha had been caught inside the line of a Boult delivery, but that didnt put him off his game plan. Saha likes to stay beside the line of the ball and score through the off side. He did that to two Boult deliveries before stumps to end the day with 14 off 22.Still, having lost R Ashwin to a questionable umpiring call just before stumps, Saha had it all to do on the second morning against the new ball. He continued to bat enterprisingly, punishing errors, running hard, and then farming the strike with his Bengal team-mate, the last man Shami. Along the way, he wore one in approximately the same place as he did during his St Lucia hundred. Just like St Lucia he batted with a swollen forearm, but that clearly didnt take away the punch from his shots.Towards the end Saha, in the company of Shami, had frustrated New Zealand enough to make them veer from their plans. He did so by playing out the first halves of overs, and then hitting boundaries when the field came up. One such was an inside-out beauty to clear long-off and bring up his fifty. As the dressing room applauded, he reacted - not with flashy celebrations, but a thumbs up. He had had a job, he had done it. But he shouldnt always have to do so.The good news for the team is that the lower order is no longer a pushover. Since the start of the England tour of 2014, around the time this lower order came to its own, Indias last four wickets have averaged 23.16, behind only England and Australia. The bad news is, Indias top six wickets have averaged only 38.94 over this period, which is in the bottom half of the Test-playing nations. It shouldnt always be Saha risking injuries to rescue India. It shouldnt always be Ashwin showing the specialist batsmen how to defend. It shouldnt always be Ravindra Jadeja wielding his bat like a sword. The lower order might be due a failure. ' ' '

    HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros dont have enough time for their bats to go quiet like they did Thursday night.Albert Pujols hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Ricky Nolasco pitched seven solid innings, helping the Los Angeles Angels hinder the Astros wild-card hopes with a 2-0 victory.The Angels ended an 11-game skid and pushed Houston 1 1/2 game behind the Tigers for the second AL wild card.Were not perfect, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. I dont know if anybody is going to run the table, and I think losses anytime of the year hurt. These obviously hurt when youre glued to whats going on.Pujols homered into the Crawford Boxes in left field, helping Los Angeles move to 2-11 against the Astros this season.Its nice to win, Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said. We have played some tough games. Those guys have had our number. Theyre a tough team. They have played well against us, but we are going to keep playing hard.Nolasco (7-14) gave up five singles and struck out five. He did not allow a baserunner past second. Nolasco had a second straight scoreless start after throwing six shutout innings Saturday against Toronto.I was spinning the ball pretty good, Nolasco said. I thought I was feeling the strike zone for the most part. I was challenging with fastballs when I had to. I was pitching off some good breaking balls to keep them off balanced.JC Ramirez pitched the eighth before Andrew Bailey pitched the ninth for his fifth save.Mike Fiers (11-8) allowed two runs and four hits with a season-high nine strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.We knew in April losing to any team in our division was a big loss, Fiers said. Obviously coming down here in September it seems bigger but its one game.The right-hander retired 13 straight at one point. Fiers had his second straight strong outing after throwing six scoreless innings Saturday in Seattle.Just came out of the gate slow and made too many mistakes in the first inning, Fiers said. Pujols capitalized on a first-pitch fastball and after that I settled in and got my pitches working and kept them off-balance for the most part.Jose Altuve had three hits for Houston, which grounded into three double plays.We couldnt piece an inning together where we had multiple hits in a row or multiple baserunners, Hinch said. There was always something in the way either too late after a couple outs or starting something up with two outs and then them making a big pitch at the right time.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (left forearm tightness) played catch and will throw some bullpens in the coming week. Hes symptom free, but we are going to obviously be very conservative where his treatment is now to make sure that this doesnt re-occur or turn into anything bigger, Scioscia said. Right now he feels great.Astros: RHP Lance McCullers, who has been out since Aug. 2 with a mild right elbow strain, threw a full bullpen Thursday. McCullers was pain free and will have another bullpen in a few days.BROWN RETIRESHouston Astros TV play-by-play announcer Bill Brown will retire this month. The 69-year-old Browns final scheduled broadcast will be the last regular season home game, Sept. 28 against the Mariners. Brown started with the Astros in 1987 and has called games for them for nearly 30 years.PUJOLS MOVING UP THE CHARTSPujols two RBI broke a tie with Frank Robinson for 20th on the career list. His 116 RBI this season are his most since driving in 118 in 2010. The home run was Pujols 53rd against the Astros.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Alex Meyer (1-3, 5.63) will make his fifth start of the season and fourth for the Angels on Friday. Meyer earned his first career win in his last start Sunday, tossing five shutout innings against Toronto.Astros: RHP Doug Fister (12-12, 4.45) will make his 31st start of the season Friday, looking to snap a four-game losing streak. Fister allowed seven runs in less than four innings Sunday at Seattle. Cheap Authentic Lions Jerseys . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday.

    ANAHEIM, Calif. -- After giving up the lead late, the first-place Texas Rangers recovered to pull out the win.Carlos Gomez homered twice to give Texas the early lead, and Jonathan Lucroy capped a late see-saw game with a two-run homer in the eighth to lead the Rangers to an 8-5 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.It was enough, said Rangers manager Jeff Banister. I wouldnt say it was a perfect ballgame but one we really fought hard to win.The Angels rallied against reliever Keone Kela in the seventh. Kole Calhoun hit a two-run homer to tie it at 4-4. Banister stuck with Kela, but Mike Trout singled, advanced to third on a groundout and a wild pitch, and scored the go-ahead run on ground-rule double from C.J. Cron.The Angels lead was short-lived, however, as Lucroys 10th homer off reliever Jose Alvarez in the eighth gave the Rangers the lead back.Nomar Mazara tripled and scored on a wild pitch by Jose Valdez (1-2) to make it 7-5 later in the eighth. Adrian Beltre completed three consecutive singles in the ninth to finish the scoring.Valdez just had trouble finishing pitches, Scioscia said.With the victory the AL-best Rangers maintained their 9 1/2-game lead over the Astros in the West.Gomez hit both homers off right-hander Daniel Wright. He led off the game by hitting Wrights first pitch for a solo home run.It kind of shocked me a little bit, Wright said. He hit it well, to say the least. It kind of put me on my heels a little bit. You never want that to happen when you go out there. I tried to bounce back as best I could.Gomez added a two-run homer in the fourth against Wright, who was making his Angels debut.Wright, who was claimed off waivers from Cincinnati last Sunday and had not pitched in 12 days, lasted five innings. He allowed the four runs on six hits and a walk.I think he really showed the ability to spin the ball, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. I think his fastball is sneaky. He got it in good spots. And really the first pitch of the game, Gomez just ambushed him on a slider. Outside of that, he did a pretty good job.Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels, coming off his worst start of the season against the Mariners (six runs in 4 1/3 innings) was not at his sharpest, but held the Angels to two runs in his six innings. He allowed six hits and four walks.He was kind of effectively wild, Banister said. Really, his misses were down and lateral. He threw enough quality strikes to keep hitters off balanced.After the Texas bullpen initially faltered, Tanner Scheppers (1-0), Matt Bush and Sam Dyson held the Angels scoreless over the final 2 1/3 innings. Dyson pitched the ninth to earn his 34th save.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: 2B Rougned Odor was given the night off with a sore hamstring. The Rangers said it was precautionary and called him day to day. . RH Colby Lewis is scheduled to make his first start Sunday since going down with a right lat strain June 21.Angels: Catcher Geovany Soto is still hopeful he will be able to return this season. Soto has been on the disabled list three times and appeared in only 26 games.

Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has advocated the introduction of a national second division to sit beneath the A-League and act as a stepping stone to professional football.Citing the positive effect of the FFA Cup on state league football, Postecoglou believes there is merit in the idea of bringing together the top clubs from the various National Premier Leagues in one competition and give more opportunities to players and coaches.The goal would be for promotion to and relegation from the top tier - but until that becomes feasible, he reckons a new division would serve a purpose in giving second-tier clubs an incentive to grow and bridging the gap between the A-League and the NPL.When I was coaching A-League I used to get quite a few players from NPL clubs and even the training load was a massive jump for them, Postecoglou said.The divide between what were seeing in the A-League and in the NPL will become wider and wider unless we can provide a link between the two, because I see the A-League clubs becoming more and more professional.A really strong second-tier competition can surely help.Weve seen the FFA Cup provide that little of window of opportunity and you see how its been embraced by the whole football community.If you can bridge that gap by giving some incentive to some of the second-tier clubs to become a bit mmore professional, therell be more (talent) coming out of there.ddddddddddddPostecoglou said there would have to be tight controls around the administration of a second division, who would be allowed in, and how it would link with the A-League, if not immediately by direct promotion and relegation.Australia is one of only two major footballing nations, along with the United States, without promotion and relegation in their top-flight domestic leagues.It is a topic of increasingly hot debate in Australia and while FFA chief executive David Gallop recently described it as the ultimate prize for the sport, there are no plans to introduce it, and Australias geography and tough sporting market presents numerous challenges.Postecoglou described himself as pretty bullish about immediate A-League expansion, with a second tier and promotion and relegation ideally to follow.For me the first stage is to say lets get some more teams in the top division, provide more opportunities for players and supporters and I think youll find from there, growth will kind of happen anyway, he said.I understand theres economics behind it but from where I sit, I think theres a real need for it, and sooner rather than later.

    Its not that anyone questioned Gwen Jorgensens running ability, but the 2016 Olympic triathlon champion and St. Paul, Minn., resident had never run 26.2 miles before starting Sundays New York City Marathon.Even though she says she wasnt entirely prepared for her first marathon, she turned in a pretty solid effort, finishing 14th overall in 2:41:01 against a strong field, just 71 days after winning gold at the Rio Olympics.Jorgensen, 30, said she wasnt entirely happy with the result and admitted she had some muscle soreness shes not used to, but overall said she had a great experience.Related story from Competitor.com: Sundays top finishersRelated story from Competitor.com: Abdi Abdirahman defies age, finishes thirdRelated story from Competitor.com: 45 reasons we love the NYC MarathonShe wound up beating a few notable pro American runners in the race, including two-time U.S. Olympian Kim Conley, who was also making her debut at the distance and placed 16th in 2:41:38, and Janet Bawcom, a 2012 Olympian at 10,000m on the track who placed 19th Sunday in 2:48:13. (For reference, Kenyas Mary Keitany won the race in 2:24:26.)It was a new experience for me and it was really exciting, Jorgensen said after the race. I have a great respect for the course and the distance, and I know the other professional runners in the race are very talented and hard-working. A couple of them flew by me at the end and I couldnt hang on.Jorgensen committed to running the New York City Marathon shortly after the biggest triathlon win of her career on Aug. 21 in Rio de Janeiro. Her race distances for that event included a 1.5K swim, a 40K bike ride and a 10K run.Then on Oct. 8, Jorgensen held her own at the U.S. 10-Mile Championship on the roads in Minneapolis, placing third overall in 53:13-about 5:19 pace per mile and just 24 seconds behind winner Jordan Hasay.Click here to read the full story from Competitor.com.

Chandler Shepherd Jersey . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. SEATTLE -- At this point of the season, the Oakland Athletics have to take their positives where ever they can get them.In a 5-1 loss to Seattle on Friday night -- Oaklands 10th in 11 games -- the bright spot was Zach Neal, who retired all 15 batters he faced to become just the second reliever in club history to pitch at least five perfect innings. The other was Dennis Eckersley, who pitched six perfect innings of relief in 1987.Hes come a long way, As manager Bob Melvin said. Hes had two days off, and gives us five innings of nothing against a team who looked like they were going to score 30 runs in the first couple innings.Seattle, which has won seven of nine, is one game behind Toronto for the AL wild-card second spot. The Mariners also trail Detroit by a half-game.Neal came on with one aboard in the third after starter Raul Alcantara (1-3) was tagged for five runs on four homers -- including two by Robinson Cano -- in two-plus innings.With Raul today, balls were over the middle of the plate, and unfortunately more mid-thigh than weve seen him, so he just had a tough night, Melvin said.Cano had a two-run homer in the first. He added his 38th home run in the third, a solo shot that gave him 100 RBI for the season. Norichika Aoki and Nelson Cruz also homered off Alcantara.Enter Neal, who was 0-2 with an 11.57 ERA in two starts against Seattle, giving up 12 runs in 9 1/3 innings pitched.The last time you all talked to me here I had just given up seven runs in four innings in my first big-league start, Neal said. So it kind of came full circle. It feels good to go out like that, especially here.Taijuan Walker (8-11) allowed one run on two hits in six innings, but walked five in a 113-pitch outing. The only run came on Ryon Healys 13th homer to open the sixth. Evan Scribner, Nick Vincent and Steve Cishek each pitched a scoreless inning of relief.It was just one of those weird starts where one hitter everything was locked in, the next hitter it was all over the place, Walker said. But, I just kept fighting.Cano drove a 1-1 pitch over the wall in center to give the Mariners to a 2-0 lead in the first after a leadoff infield single by Aoki.ddddddddddddoki made it 3-0 in the second with his fourth homer just inside the right field foul pole.Cano opened the third with another home run to center and Cruz followed with his 42nd homer to make it 5-0.The As loaded the bases in the fifth on two walks and a two-out error by second baseman Cano, but Walker retired Stephen Vogt on a popout.Neal, who was 1/3 with a 5.74 ERA in six starts, has not allowed a run in six of his last seven relief appearances.Ive just been doing the same thing I always had, Neal said. I think if theres one thing, its understanding what I do. Learning to throw my sinker to both sides of the plate, throwing strikes just like I always have. Just competing. I knew this last month was going to be a big month for me, and I was going to give it everything I had.HORN ANNOUNCES RETIREMENTOakland assistant athletic trainer Walt Horn announced he would retire at the end of the season. Horn has spent 39 years as an athletic trainer in the Athletics organization, including the last nine seasons with the major league club.If you know Walt, this is one of the tremendous gentlemen in the game, Melvin said.

Jamie Roberts looks ahead to Harlequins game against Montpellier in the Challenge Cup final Conor came in at an incredibly tough time, the club was probably at an all-time low, and he came in and a few people probably questioned why he was coming into the club, said Care of OShea, who joined Harlequins after the bloodgate scandal that saw Dean Richards depart.He saw a lot of potential, he saw a squad he thought could do some special things. With his guidance and some good players in the squad we have had a very successful six years under his tenure.Hes been brilliant for the club, a lot of players have developed through him, and gone on to reach international honours.

Except now they will have to make an extra trip later in the season to play a makeup game against the Rangers. Arizonas game at Texas on Wednesday night was postponed due to unplayable field conditions caused by a severe thunderstorm just more than an hour before the game was scheduled to start. During the storm that included lightning, gusty winds and heavy rains, the infield was soaked while the grounds crew struggled to get the tarp on the field. "We walked around, I was standing out there ... the field took a ton of water," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "They wanted to play a game today, we didnt want to play a doubleheader (Thursday), but it was just dangerous. It was really muddy on the baselines." Though the rain stopped and the grounds crew had been working on the field, Rangers officials announced the postponement just about an hour after the scheduled start. That decision was made after Gibson joined several Rangers officials, including CEO Nolan Ryan, general manager Jon Daniels and manager Ron Washington, to survey the field. "Third base and the third-base line was just entirely too soft," Washington said. "Out of the box down the first-base line, halfway where the umpires box is, its soft too. When I saw (the rain) I was watching them go under the tarp bringing the stuff that was on the field out. I didnt see the rain or the wind blow." Arizona and Texas will play a single game as scheduled Thursday, in what was to be the end of the Diamondbacks last scheduled trip to Rangers Ballpark. The Diamondbacks are scheduled to play Friday afternoon at the Chicago Cubs. The game postponed Wednesday will be made up at a later date, likely Aug. 15, a mutual off day for both teams. That is a scheduled day off for the Diamondbacks after an eight-game homestand and before a game in Pittsburgh. That is in the middle of what is already eight home games in a row for Texas. Rangers spokesman John Blake said there were no injuries reported during the storms, but thhat about 25 trees outside the stadium sustained damage or were toppled by the bad weather.dddddddddddd. Arizona swept a planned doubleheader against Texas on Monday at home. The teams had Tuesday off before the scheduled two games at Rangers Ballpark. Both scheduled starting right-handers for the postponed game are set to start Thursday. Brandon McCarthy (2-3) will pitch for the Diamondbacks against Justin Grimm (4-3). "I thought we were going to go, it was just a matter of when," said McCarthy, who never started warming up for the game. "It was a wasted off day for nothing." A few minutes after the postponement was announced, Grimm was out in front of the Rangers dugout throwing long toss to bullpen catcher Josh Frasier. Gibson said part of the field was OK, but that groundkeeper Dennis Klein said he needed to " get spikes in it, open it up and let some air get in there and dry it out. " More than a dozen grounds crew members were working on the field after the game was called, concentrating their efforts on the third-base line. During Arizonas batting practice before the game, an announcement was made that the area was under a severe thunderstorm warning. Fans were asked to leave the upper deck and all fans were told to seek shelter. When the Diamondbacks left the field a few minutes later, some field crew members rolled the batting cage out of the way while others starting pulling the tarp. While the crew tried to get the tarp in position, gusty winds caused the heavy covering to start flapping wildly and it wound up bunched together toward second base and in shallow centre field. Heavy rain fell during the several minutes it took to get the tarp under control and cover the infield, with the grounds crew joined by security and other ballpark personnel. Once the storm had passed, the crew prepared the infield dirt with drying dust and worked furiously to try to prepare the field for play. As planned, the tarp was then pulled back over the field -- with no issues this time -- with another storm in the area, though there was no more significant rain. ' ' '

    TORONTO -- Left with nothing play for at the World Cup of Hockey, coach John Tortorella told his United States players to play a game for themselves.They played hard, gave effort in a meaningless round-robin finale but still lost 4-3 to the Czech Republic on Thursday night. With an 0-3-0 record and a minus-6 goal differential, the U.S. finished seventh among eight teams, ahead of only Finland.The bottom line is we leave here with nothing, Tortorella said. Certainly we cant be happy about that.Previous losses to Team Europe and Canada eliminated the Americans from contention. While Canada, Sweden, Europe and Russia prepare for the semifinals this weekend, the U.S. and Czech Republic played out the string in front of a half-empty arena.Joe Pavelski, Justin Abdelkader and Ryan McDonagh scored for the U.S., which did not unravel in a meaningless game like it did in the 2014 Olympic bronze medal game. Ben Bishop allowed four goals on 20 shots in two periods, and Cory Schneider made seven saves in relief.Petr Mrazek stopped 36 of the 39 shots he faced to backstop the Czech Republic to its first victory. Milan Michalek scored twice and Zbynek Michalek and Andrej Sustr each had a goal.U.S. players promised they wouldnt mail it in with nothing to play for. A result of human nature, it felt like an all-star game with a lack of real physicality as everyone wanted to get through without getting injured.I thought some guys gave some really true efforts, Tortorella said. We just didnt find a way to win the hockey game.Afterward, Tortorella broke from his usual routine and addressed the team.McDonagh said the message was, Keep your heads up, youre all great players. You all represent your country to the best of your ability and you were a great group to be around.Frustration boiled over for Dustin Byfuglien at the final buzzer as he went after Czech defenseman Michal Jordan. A healthy scratch in the tournament opener, the Winnipeg Jets defenseman had a beautiful pass to set up Abdelkaders goal and was one of the best players on the ice.A collection of fans spent stretches of the first period chanting, Lets go Kessel! and We want Kessel! Stanley Cup-winning Pittsburgh Penguins winger Phil Kessel was left off the U.S. team and made light of that on Twitter on Tuesday night after the Americans lost to Canada.That was a must-win game for the U.S. after opening the tournament with what Patrick Kane called a dud against Europe. General manager Dean Lombardi blamed not being prepared for that game for the U.S. bowing out of the World Cup.I dont think we showed enough respect for the talent on that team, Lombardi said Thursday morning.Lombardi said that the 3-0 loss to Europe put the U.S. behind the proverbial 8-ball that felt like a boulder. The Los Angeles Kings GM has seen his team come back from a 3-0 playoff deficit but described the locker room after losing to Europe as tight, and the U.S. was never able to adequately respond.We needed to do a better job than what we did, but theres a lot of good players in that room, captain Joe Pavelski said. We kind of beat ourselves a little bit.Getting almost skated out of the rink by Canada wasnt entirely unexpected, but players acknowledged their recipe to move on was to beat Europe and the Czech Republic. They didnt do either, and USA Hockey faces plenty of questions about how it will bounce back for the 2018 Olympics, if NHL players participate.Tortorella said he had a few ideas about changes that could be made but preferred to keep those to himself. He doesnt want USA Hockey to overreact despite a lackluster showing on a big stage.Weve just got to slow ourselves down and dissect whats happened, he said. It certainly isnt good. But not to the extent as far as the chatter all around us. I think weve got to block out the noise, re-assess where we went and see what we can do to get us better as an organization.

NAPA, Calif. -- Coach Jack Del Rio walked off the field after the first training camp practice and was quickly asked about the buzz surrounding his Oakland Raiders team that might finally have the ingredients to end a 13-year playoff drought.We play a little buzz coverage, Del Rio joked Friday before acknowledging and accepting the heightened expectations heading into his second year as Raiders coach.Its a tough division but we come in expecting to win our division, he said. Thats our goal. Thats our goal every year. I started that last year. We certainly arent going to back away from anything like that.Talking tough and actually contending are far different but this years Raiders team appears to have the necessary pieces to help the franchise reverse a downward slide that has featured 13 straight years without a playoff berth or a winning record.Quarterback Derek Carr took a major step forward in Year 2 in the NFL and has ended the revolving door at the position that had hindered Oakland ever since former MVP Rich Gannon left following the 2004 season.Carr has a strong offensive line to protect him, a 1,000-yard back in Latavius Murray to relieve some pressure and most importantly a big-time receiver in Amari Cooper, who caught 72 passes for 1,070 yards as a rookie last year.Carr has heard plenty about the hype surrounding his team as friends around the league spent the offseason praising moves like the additions of linebacker Bruce Irvin, cornerback Sean Smith, safety Reggie Nelson and guard Kelechi Osemele and told him the Raiders are a team to be feared.As much as he appreciates those compliments after starting his career in 2014 on an overmatched team that lost its first 10 games and changed coaches before finishing 3-13, he mostly tunes them out.I put so much pressure on myself I dont get caught up in `we expect this, we expect that, Carr said. I already expect greatneess and perfection.ddddddddddddCarr said he keeps a close eye on the team to make sure that the outside praise doesnt lead to complacency.He is pleased with what he saw this offseason as players put in the same extra work and effort they did even when the team struggled his rookie season.When the extra stuff stops, when the hard work stops, thats when you need to worry, he said.It helps that two of the hardest workers are the top players on both sides of the ball in Carr and edge rusher Khalil Mack. The teams top two picks in the 2014 draft talked about changing the culture in Oakland soon after they were drafted and they have done a good job so far in their short time as pros.They have produced as well.Carr is coming off a 32-touchdown season and is now seeking to become more efficient and consistent as he hopes to take another step forward. Mack emerged as one the top defensive players in the league last year, recording 15 sacks to go along with stout run defense that helped him get named a first-team All Pro at both defensive end and linebacker.Now they hope to contribute to some team success as well as the Raiders seek to improve on last years 7-9 record.I feel like were in the midst of a great turnaround, Mack said.Game notes First-round S Karl Joseph (knee) practiced for the first time with the full team after undergoing knee surgery last season at West Virginia. ... The Raiders hosted about 90 former players as part of alumni weekend. The team also hosted military members for the opening day of practice. ... Oakland signed DT Derrick Lott and placed RB Roy Helu Jr. on injured reserve. ...
