Taylor was embraced by family members when the cards were read and, with the Principality Stadium almost full ahead of Anthony Joshua's meeting with Carlos Takam, the decision was met with a big roar.

She had labelled this the Andrej Sekera Jersey biggest night of her life, a big claim for a five-time world amateur champion and the 2012 Olympic gold medal winner.But the Bray fighter never looked in danger of suffering stage fright. She strutted into the ring with confidence and started quickly, landing several right hands in the opening two-minute round.

Sanchez, who was beaten for only the third time in 20 fights, could not shift a solitary pound despite being given two hours to do so after Friday's weigh-in.It meant only Taylor could leave Wales with the title, but the Buenos Aires fighter still found the grit needed to rise Eddie Goldman Authentic Jersey from a crippling blow to the body in the second round.
The Argentine brought a threat of her own, landing some stinging counter punches as Taylor applied consistent pressure in a contest packed with the kind of heavy hitting which draws gasps from those Authentic Phil Rizzuto Jersey in attendance.
But two rapid-fire right hands in the fifth summed up all that Taylor was about as she maintained exquisite accuracy, notably with the right hand.The cut above her eye failed to deter her late on as a five-shot combination found the target in the ninth. She was simply quicker to the punch and, when the pair boxed at close quarters, Taylor always looked more willing to walk through punches and be the last of the two swinging.
With a world title to her name she now carries significant collateral in chasing unification bouts or pursuing a mooted clash with UFC start Holly Holm, herself a former world boxing champion at multiple weights.
Taylor will have options, but once again showed how comfortable she is on the big stage as she completed her rapid ascent to the top of the pro game and built on a glorious amateur pedigree.It was very impressive given Taylor has only had seven pro fights and it comes within a year of her leaving the amateur game.
One of the key factors in the making of a champion is resilience and Sanchez showed plenty of that.But throughout the contest Taylor had the edge in power and variety. She will have Sam Bradford Authentic Jersey learned much and taken much confidence from going 10 rounds at such a pace.
But there were signals also of the dangers at the highest level. There were times where she was caught freely by Sanchez.But overall, a performance of great credit, well received by the huge crowd. That can only have added to her marketability. That in turn is a massive boost for women's boxing, not just in this country.

cb|GeSHi-mod / Rohit Sharma dedicates historic third ODI double hundred
« on: December 16, 2017, 10:31:50 AM »
Rohit Sharma dedicated his third double hundred to his wife Ritika Sajdeh in Mohali on Wednesday.Riding on Rohit's unbeaten 208 from 153 balls, India posted a mammoth total of 392/4 from their 50 overs. In reply, Sri Lanka only managed to score 251/8 and handed the hosts a 141-run victory in the second ODI.

However, the day will be special to Rohit for more than one reason. On December 13, 2015, Rohit married Ritika and two years later, on their second anniversary, the 'Hitman' gifted his wife a perfect present. Talking about the knock and the anniversary, the Mumbaikar dedicated the double hundred to her and thanked her for her support.

"I am sure she would have liked this gift from me. She is my strength and keeps supporting me. This is one good part about having your family around, we already go through a lot of stress and it makes our lives easier," Rohit said.
"The more important thing is that we won the game and right from the start we were right on top and gave nothing easy," he added.
The 30-year-old, who hit his sixth ton in ODIs in 2017, managed to reach the three figure mark in the 40th over off 115 balls. And once he reached the landmark, there was no stopping him. He managed the next 100 off just 36 balls. When asked about his tremendous acceleration, he said: "If I am not wrong, in the first two 200s as well I got the century in the 38th over and I kept telling myself to hold my shape and hit through the line. I did pretty similar things in the earlier ones too - getting 50 off 70 balls."
"It was a great day. Winning the game was important for me and for the team. After the loss at Dharamsala it was necessary to come back and we did it superbly. It was great to get the total we got Authentic Patrick Kane Jersey because there was a bit of dew in the end," Rohit added.  When asked about his favourite double hundred, he said that he can't pick just one of them.
"People keep asking me to pick my favourite double-century but I really cannot pick one. That one against Australia was the series decider, the one against Sri Lanka earlier was one where I was coming back from an injury and this one was necessary to keep the series alive," said the Mumbaikar.

Young Washington Sundar made his debut and returned with Jason Kasdorf Youth jersey figures of 1/65 from his 10 overs. Talking about the 18-year-old, Rohit said that it was not the ideal situation for him to make his debut but he feels that the Tamilian will learn from this game.
Not the ideal conditions for him to debut but this is how he will learn. As team management we want to back players like him and I am sure he must have learnt a lot from this game, playing Jamie Collins Authentic Jersey with the Womens Tyreke Evans Jersey wet ball and I wish him all the luck.

cb|Emailogin / Manchester create history with 15th straight win
« on: December 16, 2017, 08:16:59 AM »
Manchester City set a new Premier League record of 15 consecutive wins with a 4-0 victory at bottom club Swansea.City came into the contest averaging three goals per game and made sure that record was matched inside 52 minutes with a David Silva double and Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick.

Sergio Aguero claimed the fourth five minutes from time with his 10th league goal of the season - one more than Swansea have managed.Silva has now scored four goals in his last three games and was at his brilliant best here, conducting the City orchestra with his passing and movement.City's latest win of a seemingly unstoppable campaign removed Arsenal's 14-game winning streak in 2002 from the record books.

They say Paxton Lynch Youth jersey there are no easy games in the Premier League, but this was as straightforward as it gets with City enjoying 78 per cent Brandon Marshall Authentic Jersey possession.Pep Guardiola's side were in cruise control long before going two goals up inside 34 minutes, forcing Swansea to cover vast acres of turf without the ball.
Swansea's performance was one of commitment and effort, yet the gulf between the two sides was predictably huge.City did not even have to be at their giddy best during an opening quarter in which they made more Michael Ferland Youth jersey mistakes than in winning the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The recalled Aguero, in particular, had a frustrating first half as he found the side netting in the fifth minute and then twice headed over when well placed.Fernandinho's 25-yard drive brought a fine stop from Lukasz Fabianski, but Swansea broke the Igor Larionov Youth jersey early siege when Roque Mesa released Jordan Ayew.
The Ghanaian carried the ball fully 50 yards but the sprawling Ederson was equal to his effort.Nicolas Otamendi thrashed wide when Fabianski flapped at a cross as City continued to seek the finishing touch to their complete control.
It came after 27 minutes when Bernardo Silva pounced on Mesa's wayward pass and cross for namesake David to break the deadlock with a nonchalant flick.
Fabianksi soon pushed out Aguero's low effort, but the goalkeeper was beaten again when De Bruyne's free-kick from the left skimmed past him in a crowded goalmouth.City should have been out of sight within 45 seconds of the restart when David Silva played a one-two with Aguero before sending the ball wide with the goal at his mercy.
But the Spaniard was not to be denied after Fabianski had again prevented Aguero from opening his account.Raheem Sterling broke down the right and David Silva took his pass to coolly chip over Fabianski from a few yards out.
Swansea almost reduced the deficit when Mesa's shot took a wicked deflection off Fabian Delph, but Ederson switched direction in a flash to make an excellent save.It was a rare moment of concern on a night when City's title-winning credentials were again clear for all to see.

cb|Emailogin / Tom Brady doesn't defeat the Steelers with his arm
« on: December 16, 2017, 04:36:39 AM »
After five meetings with the Patriots quarterback, defensive end Cam Heyward knows that Brady wins plays as he stands over center."He breaks you down before the play’s even snapped," Heyward said.

Brady has had a special kind of success against Pittsburgh. His passer rating of 114.2 against the Steelers is his highest among NFL opponents he has played more than five times. In his past seven games against Pittsburgh, Brady has 22 touchdowns, zero interceptions and six wins.
A catalyst for that success is Brady's ability to play the chess game at the line of scrimmage, placing the onus on Mike Tomlin, the Steelers defensive staff and the team's veteran players to set their best game plan of the season.
Traditionally, Brady has been ready for most anything Pittsburgh throws his way. Pittsburgh caused Brady problems in a 2011 win with a variation of man coverage, which the Steelers say they are equipped to run in 2017.
But generally, Brady knows that he can find completions based on the defense's look, and he can step through the pass rush, Heyward said. He makes the appropriate checks at the line of scrimmage and knows what plays work well against Pittsburgh.
The Steelers' ability to adapt, both in game prep and in real time, could decide which team gets home-field advantage for the playoffs."You have to be willing to play the game with him, have some checks for him," Heyward said. "But at the same time, you Jay Cutler Jersey want to be able to not be dictated to but dictate to him."
Mike Tomlin has delivered that message to his defense, which believes it has emerged from last year's AFC title game loss to New England bigger -- and stronger. Pittsburgh ranks in the NFL's top six in scoring defense, passing defense and sacks. The loss of Ryan Shazier to a spinal injury has left Pittsburgh scrambling for help at inside linebacker, but the potential return of corner Joe Haden would bolster the secondary.
To validate that newfound strength, the Steelers must combat Brady's ability to change the pace of the offense. Tomlin considers that an "awesome" part of Brady's game, especially when fully stocked with an arsenal of running Earl Thomas III Authentic Jersey backs who can take handoffs or line up wide.
The Steelers struggled with Brady's no-huddle offense last year in Foxboro, something defensive end Tyson Alualu, a former Jacksonville Jaguar, understands. The first-year Steeler remembers Brady once breaking off a frenzied, 14-play scoring drive against Jacksonville that left him uneasy.

cb|GeSHi-mod / legacy will not be tainted by 'adverse' drugs test
« on: December 16, 2017, 02:23:48 AM »
The Team Sky rider, 32, had double the allowed level of legal asthma drug Salbutamol in his urine.In an interview with the BBC in Mallorca, Froome said he "knows the rules" and there was "no wrongdoing".

"I understand this comes as a big shock to people," he said. "I certainly haven't broken any rules here."Cycling's world governing body the UCI wants more details from the team but says Froome is not suspended.
The use of Salbutamol is permitted, without the need of a therapeutic use exemption (TUE), but only within certain doses.Froome says he increased his dosage but it was within the legal limits, adding that he was "only too happy" to help the UCI "fill in the blanks".
Asked whether he felt his legacy was permanently tainted, Froome said: "No."He added: "I can understand a lot of people's reactions, especially given the history of the sport. This is not a Kirk Mclean Jersey positive test.
"The sport is coming from a very dark background and I have tried to do everything through my career to show that the sport has turned around."Froome says he took his team doctor's advice to up his inhaler use after his asthma symptoms got worse during the Vuelta.
He became the first Briton to win the three-week race around Spain and it followed his Tour de France victory in July.He was notified of the "adverse analytical finding" on 20 September 2017.The urine test, taken on 7 September, showed levels of the drug, Salbutamol, which is commonly taken for asthma, were at 2,000 nanograms per millilitre (ng/ml).
That compares to the World Anti-Doping Agency's (Wada) threshold of 1,000 ng/ml."I have been a professional cyclist now, treating my symptoms and racing with asthma, for 10 years," said Froome."I know what those rules are, I know what those limits are and I have never been over those limits.
"I have got a very clear routine when I use my inhaler and how many times. I have given all that information to the UCI to help get to the bottom of it."Froome was named in leaked medical records by the Russian hackers Fancy Bears as one of the athletes to use TUEs during competition.
The documents claimed he was given the exemption for the asthma drug prednisolone in May Craig Smith Authentic Jersey 2013 and April 2014.Earlier this year, the rider admitted he rejected a TUE for his asthma during his Tour de France win in 2015.
Froome said journalists could see he was struggling after stages during the Vuelta, but told them he was fine in order to "disguise any kind of weaknesses from his rivals"."I am racing against guys who are looking for any kind of weakness," he added."I am not going to admit through a Grand Tour that 'yes. I am suffering with something', because the next day my rivals will come out absolutely swinging."

The vaunted net and floor defense of F2 Logistics had no answer for the pair of Lindsay Stalzer and Hillary Hurley on Tuesday, as the imports powered Petron to a surprising three-set victory over the Cargo Movers in Game 1 of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix finals.

Stalzer and Hurley each scored 20 points in a variety of ways, with the former firing 15 attacks on top of three blocks and two aces. Hurley scored 16 of her points via kills. Together, the two imports anchored Petron's blistering offense in what turned out to be a comfortable 25-14, 25-21, 25-16 triumph.

That the Blaze Spikers won in straight sets came Doug Flutie Authentic Jersey as a surprise for most observers, who had expected a slugfest between the Womens Tom Rathman Jersey two powerhouse squads. Indeed, Petron entered the best-of-three finals as the slight underdog, having dropped its elimination round game to F2 Logistics in four sets.
Stalzer, a veteran import who is in her fourth stint Ryan Hewitt Jersey in the PSL, was not so shocked at the result."The amount of dedication that we've shown in the past couple of weeks, I'm just over the moon because we put in so much time and effort and mental energy," said Stalzer.
Given how much they had prepared for the finals against the Cargo Movers, Stalzer was gratified rather than surprised at how well they played."I couldn't be happier with the result tonight," said the 33-year-old import. "It was a team effort, and everybody was at the top of their game."
"This was the best we've played, I think," she added. "So this is the perfect time to peak. I'm just really happy."Stalzer fully expects F2 Logistics to bounce back: the Cargo Movers were shockingly listless in Game 1, but their coach, Ramil de Jesus, is known for his ability to make smart adjustments. Robert Bortuzzo Jersey Moreover, they boast of a powerful pair of imports as well, in Maria Jose Perez and Kennedy Bryan.
"I don't think it's going to be quite as easy in Game 2," Stalzer acknowledged. "They're definitely going to go and think of everything they can do to stop us, so we'll try and anticipate and just prepare as well."
She is bracing for a bounce-back game from Perez, who had 15 points – all on attacks – in Game 1. Stalzer is very familiar with the Venezuelan player, as they were teammates while playing in Indonesia.
"I have a lot of respect for Maria. She's a great player and a good friend," said Stalzer. "But you know, she's across the net, so I'm going to take it to her and give the best I got."Though she anticipates a fightback from the Cargo Movers and from Perez in particular, Stalzer remains reasonably confident that Petron can wrap up the series in Game 2 on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
"We can always improve," she said, hinting that Petron can play even better than they did last Tuesday, when they committed only nine unforced errors as a team – a remarkable number."I'm very confident going into the next game," added Stalzer, who can become a three-time PSL Grand Prix champion should the Blaze Spikers triumph on Thursday. The American import was part of Foton when the Tornadoes won the past two Grand Prix.

cb|GeSHi-mod / Three young GAA stars get big chance in AFL
« on: December 15, 2017, 03:54:51 AM »
Three young Gaelic footballers have been handed the chance to advance their cause as AFL prospects with an invitation to a testing academy in Florida next month.Dublin's James Madden, Cork's Mark Keane and Derry's Anton Tohill, son of former Oak Leaf great Anthony, have made the cut following AFL Europe's latest Dublin-based combine in UCD last week.

There were 21 players invited, including rising Galway hurling star Jack Canning, with Madden catching the eye with a record-breaking effort in the 20-metre sprint.

Madden, a member of this year's Dublin minor team, comes from the same club, Ballyboden St Enda's, as Jim Stynes, the most successful Irish recruit to the AFL over the last quarter of a Antoine Vermette Jersey century.Tohil and Keane, who featured with Earl Campbell Youth jersey the Cork U-17 and minor teams in 2017, also impressed at the recent combine.
An invitation to the Florida academy was the route that Galway's Cillian McDaid, Kilkenny's Darragh Joyce and Westmeath's Ray Connellan took to securing contracts in recent years.
AFL national and international talent manager Kevin Sheehan was present for the UCD combine last week to oversee it in the absence of Tadhg Kennelly, who has left his international talent co-ordinator role to rejoin Sydney Swans in a coaching capacity.
Former AFL players Martin Clarke and Colm Begley were also involved in the organisation of the two-day camp that featured five players from Kerry.
Sheehan said he understood some of the fear expressed in Ireland about losing top players, a fear that heightened this year in Kerry, especially over David Clifford. But he feels there will never be a deluge making the switch.
"It's not surprising the level of player playing Gaelic football, it's elite. You even see it at International Rules level, they can match the best in Australia as they did last month. They're pretty elite.
"But there'll only ever be an odd one. It's Womens Terence Garvin Jersey never a flood that comes our way. There's been an average of one-and-a-half to two, and one comes back so it fits in that space, it's not a case of pillaging the boys that are talented.
"David Clifford, for instance, doesn't appear to want it and that's fine," continued Sheehan."We've seen that over many years. From where we come, we appreciate the legacy of Jim Stynes to come out when he made that decision 30 years ago and become a legend of our game and contribute massively to our community.,101338

cb|GeSHi-mod / Players confronted by angry fans after loss
« on: December 15, 2017, 02:14:14 AM »
Hughes wants his players to use the supporters' fury as motivation as they seek to address their slump in form.Stoke are three points above relegation and travel to seventh-placed Burnley on Tuesday (19:45 GMT).

Hughes said: "That is still resonating. Sometimes you need a reality check."The confrontation took place as they arrived back at Stoke-on-Trent station on Saturday night.Stoke's players regularly travel back from away games alongside supporters, but the number of fans on their train on Saturday was greater due to Justin Blackmon Youth jersey delays out of London.

Fans were then locked inside carriages and made to wait while Hughes' team were allowed off the train first.Some fans who had been on the same train to Stoke as the players chanted "you're not fit to wear the shirt" at Hughes' players."It's good we have a game on Tuesday because it is still fresh in the mind, fresh in their ears probably," he said.
"Use it as a motivating factor. Don't allow people to have an opportunity to question you. You do that by playing well, getting results."There could be individuals in our group who haven't experienced it before, but they have now. So they can use it.
"You either suck it up Al MacInnis Jersey and do something about it or you go under, and we can't accept players like that."Sometimes you need to understand how our results and performances affect people."Stoke have have now conceded 17 goals in their last four games against Spurs, losing 4-0 in their three previous fixtures against Mauricio Pochettino's side before Saturday's latest defeat.
"Each and every one of us understood that before the weekend," added Hughes. "So let's use it as a motivating factor, don't let it make you insular or go into your shell."Some Stoke supporters have also questioned Hughes' future after only four wins from their 16 games so far this season.
"There's been an undercurrent since I've been here," Hughes said of the flak aimed in his direction.On the day I was appointed there was a car outside the stadium with 'Hughes out' written on it - that was before I even got here!
"But I understand it, some people Cliff Avril Authentic Jersey won't like you or your teams, your picks, your substitutions; some don't like your hair or the way you speak.
'You can't take exception to it. I'm the public face of the team so I have to take the brunt of it, I accept that to a certain extent."

General SMF discussion / F2 Logistics eye early lead in PSL Finals series
« on: December 14, 2017, 09:24:23 AM »
Two powerhouse squads will battle for supremacy when Petron and F2 Logistics kick off their best-of-3 finals series in the Chooks-to-Go Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.Game 1 is set at 7 p.m., following the bronze medal match between Cocolife and Foton scheduled for 4:15 p.m.

The Blaze Spikers and the Cargo Movers rolled through the elimination round, finishing with identical 7-1 slates before crushing their respective foes in the quarterfinals. They then emerged victorious in the semis to book a finals duel for the second time this year.
Petron had to go through the wringer before hacking out a 30-28, 21-25, 25-23, 25-21 to dethrone defending champion Foton in the semis, while F2 Logistics barreled past Cocolife, 25-17, 25-16, 25-17, in their own Final 4 match-up.
This marks the fourth straight year that Petron has advanced to the finals of the Grand Prix, while F2 Logistics is making its first appearance in the championship round of the season-ending conference since joining the league last year.
Petron coach Shaq delos Santos stressed that the Blaze Spikers are hungry to regain the crown that they last won in 2014, when they were bannered by American import Alaina Bergsma and Brazilian playmaker Erica Adachi.
"We know that for the past two years, we were always being beaten by Foton for the title," said Delos Santos. "That's why winning the title this time means a lot to us.""We are very hungry, and we will do everything to win it," he vowed. "It's no longer a question of roster, imports, or any other factors; it's now a question of heart and desire."
Petron is also searching for payback of sorts, as their lone loss of the elimination round came against F2 Logistics. The Cargo Movers trounced the Blaze Spikers earlier in the conference, 21-25, 25-20, 23-25, 19-25.
"That Authentic Cory Joseph Jersey loss served as an eye-opener," said Delos Santos, who acknowledged that they had no answer for the power of F2 Logistics imports Maria Jose Perez and Kennedy Bryan in their first encounter."F2 was just in its first match, and we had no idea how strong they were," he added. "At least it helped us realize that we're still a work in progress, and we still have to learn as the tournament progresses."
The Cargo Movers are similarly hungry for success in the best-of-3 series, as a victory over Petron in the championship round will give head coach Ramil de Jesus a trophy that is missing from his collection.
De Jesus has won 10 UAAP titles with De La Salle University, as well as the PSL All-Filipino Conference. However, he has yet to win in the PSL Grand Prix."We want to experience how it feels to win the Grand Prix," Fred Biletnikoff Womens Jersey said De Jesus, who will bank on Kim Fajardo, Majoy Baron, Aby Marano and Dawn Macandili against the rock-solid core of Mika Reyes, Rhea Dimaculangan, Ces Molina, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas and imports Hillary Hurley and Lindsay Stalzer.

cb|Emailogin / Week 14 fantasy football winners and losers
« on: December 14, 2017, 05:01:38 AM »
As we do each week, we recap the week's winners and losers from a fantasy perspective, complete with applicable game and historical data. Check back after the conclusion of the 1 and 4 p.m. ET (and, when applicable, Sunday Night Football) games for our picks of the week's best and worst.

Who cares who is throwing him the football? Hopkins continues to carry his fantasy teams with huge scores, like his 35.9 PPR points that was tops among all players during the 1 p.m. ET games. It was the fourth time in his career that he Authentic Luol Deng Jersey had scored at least 35,and in each of the four he had a different quarterback throwing to him: Ryan Fitzpatrick for his career-best 44.8 in 2014 Week 13, Brian Hoyer for his 36.8 in 2015 Week 6, Deshaun Watson for his 36.4 in 2017 Week 8 and Tom Savage relieved by T.J. Yates on Sunday.
Hopkins found his way onto a high percentage of ESPN playoff teams (49.5 percent, seventh-highest among wide receivers, and he was the second most-started wide receiver of Week 14 (98.8 percent of leagues). He has given his teams an excellent chance at advancing in the playoffs.
The Cowboys' fill-in running backs during Ezekiel Elliott's suspension have performed decently -- Alfred Morris and Smith have combined for 113.0 PPR fantasy points on 134 touches in five games -- but Smith's performance on Sunday was either player's best yet. The third-year player scored 33.0 PPR fantasy points, tops among running backs during the 1 p.m. ET games, obliterating his previous career high and in fact nearly doubling his season total entering the week (40.7).
Smith made one big play count, scoring 15.1 of his 33.0 on an 81-yard touchdown on a short pass with just over four minutes to play, and he capped Frank Zombo Jersey his day with a 15-yard rushing touchdown a little more than a minute later. That strong finish could -- and should -- make him a popular addition in the 73.0 percent of ESPN leagues in which he remains available, as he and the Cowboys face the Oakland Ziggy Ansah Jersey Raiders in Week 15.
Williams' 30.8 points on Sunday represented the most that he has scored in any of his 13 career games to date, as well as the second straight week he has had a big game while fellow rookie Aaron Jones has played a minimal role.
Jones played two snaps to Williams' 46 and had 8.0 PPR fantasy points on only one rushing attempt in Week 13, and Jones played seven snaps to Williams' 52 and had minus-0.2 PPR fantasy points on four rushing attempts on Sunday, per Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke.
Williams' start percentage dropped from 69.6 percent in Week 13 to 45.2 percent on Sunday, but after a game like this, doesn't it make a lot more sense for the Packers to simply stick with him as the starter next week?

cb|GeSHi-mod / Leo Cullen on the key areas Leinster can improve
« on: December 14, 2017, 02:15:55 AM »
Leinster handed Exeter Chiefs their first home defeat of the season to take control of Pool 3 in The Champions Cup at Sandy Park.Leinster dominated the first quarter, having a stunning try from Luke McGrath disallowed for Johnny Sexton’s foot in touch.

Then, referee Romain Poite insisted Devin Toner had not grounded the ball when his Television Match Official Eric Gonthier believed a try had been scored.A series of scrum penalties meant a yellow card for Exeter prop Harry Williams and Sexton exploited the extra man to perfection for the lead try in the 21st minute. 

Immediately, Gareth Steenson shot three points from Exeter’s first attack for Cian Healy not releasing the tackler.This was neutralised by Sexton’s simple three for Nic White’s no-arms tackle on Healy to grab an 8-3 lead.
This lasted to the break on the back of a monster defensive series from the Irish as they repelled Exeter’s vaunted maul and pick-and-go.The same again was required after Sean Cronin was binned for a high tackle on Jack Nowell.
They survived the ten minutes before right wing Garret Sparks Youth jersey James Short pierced Leinster for the equalizing try in the 55th minute.The Irish responded impressively for Nacewa to strike a lead penalty in the 62nd minute.   
The issue was put beyond doubt when Jack Conan powered over for Isa Nacewa to convert in the 72nd minute.“It was a closely fought-out game, a proper cup rugby match," reflected Leinster Kevin White Youth jersey coach Leo Cullen.
“There’s plenty of things in the game that we can get better at as well, a little bit of composure."But it’s not an easy place to come and get Authentic Eric Decker Jersey a win. So we’re delighted to get that.”
Meanwhile, Leinster's Tadhg Furlong gave his verdict on a hard fought win to RTE."We retained the ball pretty well and it was a lot of phases we went through," he stated."Probably the forwards slowed down a bit and Authentic Luke Stocker Jersey were sucking a bit of diesel towards the end, I certainly was anyway.
"To go through that many phases and hold onto the ball for that long is pleasing and in the game of rugby pretty unusual."They're a really tough team to stop. We probably let them in and didn't hold width and they got us on the edge on one occasion."It was a big effort from everyone involved and some of the energy needed to get off the ground and make tackles was pleasing."

cb|GeSHi-mod / NFL match goes ahead during blizzard
« on: December 13, 2017, 11:36:21 AM »
Their match - at New Era Field in New York - took place in a blizzard, which caused players to skid and slide throughout.On the eve of the match, the Bills had asked fans to come to the stadium to help shovel snow, but the weather worsened during Sunday's game.

The Bills supporters who did brave the conditions went home happy - their team won 13-7 in Joel Edmundson Youth jersey overtime.Lovren and captain Jordan Henderson angrily remonstrated with the referee at the final whistle after he awarded the visitors their first penalty at Anfield since 1988.

Liverpool clearly felt it was a soft decision, yet the hosts must also look at themselves for their inability to secure victory after failing to turn their long spells of possession into more than one goal.
They remain unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions but this will feel like a defeat for Klopp, whose team selection will also come under scrutiny.The German opted to start Philippe Coutinho, who scored a Champions League hat-trick in midweek against Spartak Moscow, and fellow Brazilian Roberto Firmino on the bench.
Instead Klopp handed 20-year-old striker Dominic Solanke his second league start for the club, while there was an all-English midfield of Henderson, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain."I make decisions that I think are right," added Klopp. "We lived more or less in their box. We could have scored earlier. I have to live with that."
Klopp made six changes in total yet Liverpool's play was still fluent, even if they were frustrated by the visitors before a brilliant piece of individual skill by Authentic Jae Crowder Jersey Salah put them ahead.The Egypt forward took his tally for the club since signing in the summer to 19 goals with an exquisite finish after beating Cuco Martina and holding off Idrissa Gueye.
However, Mane's selfish decision not to pass to a team-mate cost Liverpool the cushion of a second goal before the interval.He ran clear of the Everton defence but instead of squaring to Solanke, Oxlade-Chamberlain or Salah he went for goal and dragged his shot wide of the right-hand post.
Liverpool's failure to add another goal ultimately cost them a fourth successive win, as Everton secured a point from a game they never had control of.As Klopp sought to engineer a late winner for his side he sent on Danny Ings for the injury-plagued striker's first Premier League appearance since May 2016.
Everton remain without a win at Anfield since 1999 yet this was a result to enjoy for the blue half of Merseyside.The Toffees managed just two shots on target and spent most of the first half camped inside their Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey own half as Liverpool dominated possession and territory.
In fact, Everton had 21% of the possession, their lowest figure ever in a Premier League match since 2003-04 (when Opta started recording the share).Liverpool midfielder Henderson completed 60 passes - six more than Everton's players put together - in the opening 45 Patrick Roy Jersey minutes alone.
Yet Allardyce's side dug deep to stay in the game, and when the chance arose to beat keeper Simon Mignolet, the goal was meaningful.Rooney's first goal in six appearances in this fixture extends his side's unbeaten run to four games in all competitions.

Drag-flicker Blake Govers struck two minutes from time as defending champions Australia edged past Argentina 2-1 to win the title in Womens Rodney Gunter Jersey the Hockey World League (HWL) Final at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Sunday.

Govers struck to the left of Argentine goalkeeper Juan Vivaldi in the 58th minute after Australia saw Milan Lucic Jersey Jeremy Hayward's penalty corner conversion in the 17th minute being equalised within a minute by Agustin Bugallo.

It was a fitting final given that the contest was between Olympic champions Argentina and the world champions.The match lived up to the expectations, with both teams showing their attacking game.
While Australia kept their game of all-round attack, Argentina did their best to maintain their game of holding the ball in their half and wait for a counter-attack.Even though Australia pressed hard, Argentina kept moving the ball quickly.
Australia drew the first blood, with Hayward flicking between Vivaldi's left leg and left-bar defender Ignacio Ortiz.However, the South Americans pulled level within a minute as Bugallo deflected home at the right Andre Holmes Jersey near post a right cross from Juan Gilardi.
Afterward, both teams were locked in a tight battle. Argentina matched Australia's physical game head-on.
Eddie Ockenden came closest to give Australia the lead a few seconds prior to the close of the third quarter. Central defender Mark Knowles' long-range ball was met by Blake Govers just outside the circle and he fed the veteran attacking midfielder on the left but the latter was denied by the cross-bar.
Juan Lopez responded for Argentina following a superb counter-attack but with only goalkeeper Tyler Lovell to beat, the attacker drove wide of the left post.Just when it seemed the match will go to the penalty shootout, Australia earned a penalty corner from which Govers made no mistake to make it 2-1.
In the dying seconds, Diego Paz failed to connect a flick from the left as Australia survived some anxious moments to earn the 2-1 win and retain the title they had won in Raipur two years ago."We controlled the game well and got some clear-cut chances but didn't make the most of them," Man-of-the-Match Gilardi of Argentina said after the match.

cb|GeSHi-mod / Donaire questions Rigondeaux after loss to Lomachenko
« on: December 13, 2017, 06:50:39 AM »
Former world champion Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire could not help but be disappointed after seeing Cuban standout Guillermo Rigondeaux quit on his stool midway through a championship fight on Saturday in New York (Sunday in Manila).

Rigondeaux moved up two weight classes to challenge Vasyl Lomachenko for the WBO junior lightweight championship. However, the Cuban found himself outclassed by the Ukrainian star, and Rigondeaux proceeded to quit on his stool after the sixth round.

His decision to give up did not sit well with Donaire, who said on social media that he did not understand why Rigondeaux opted to quit.
"Incredible performance from Loma," Donaire said of the Ukrainian, who has now improved to 10-1 in his professional career. "Rigo Authentic Matt Wieters Jersey has never been in this position where he has been dominated every way."
Donaire would know: he tried and failed to beat Rigondeaux back in April 2013, only to be outboxed and outpointed by the Cuban star.Against Lomachenko, however, Rigondeaux's vaunted boxing skills were negated. "Loma" peppered Rigondeaux with jabs and he was well ahead in the scorecards Womens Stephen Strasburg Jersey when the Cuban proceeded to quit. Rigondeaux later claimed that he injured his hand in the second round, severely hampering his chances.
Even so, Donaire struggled to figure out Rigondeaux's mindset."I still can't understand how a fighter quits," Donaire said. "I fought with bloody hands, I fought with numerous fractures, and sometimes, my brain tells me to stop and tells me that I have done enough."
"But never in my life have I ever quit," he added. "You could knock me down, and I'll at least attempt to get up.""But I won't quit, ever. It is what it is."Donaire made it clear that it was not as if he wanted Rigondeaux to lose. Indeed, he wanted the Cuban to win, as much as he wished for Jamaican star Nicholas Walters to beat Lomachenko Womens T.J. Warren Jersey as well when they fought back in November 2016.
However, Walters also lost to Lomachenko, and in similar fashion: he quit on his stool at the end of the seventh round. "I wanted Walters and Rigo to win, because in doing so, it gives me the credibility of being beaten by the top pound for pound Los Angeles Lakers Jersey (boxers)," said Donaire, who lost to Walters in October 2014 via knockout.
"Staying on the stool with half the fight left, on the other hand, negates the macho image purported by going two weight divisions up," he said.Donaire is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Ruben Garcia Hernandez back in September.,103853,101455

cb|GeSHi-mod / FC Pune City crack Jamshedpur FC's defence for 1-0 victory
« on: December 13, 2017, 03:34:42 AM »
FC Pune City joined the toppers in the Indian Super League after claiming a well deserved 1-0 victory over Jamshedpur FC at the JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur on Sunday.

FC Pune City defender Adil Khan's goal at the half hour mark proved to be the difference between the two sides as Pune registered their third win in five matches to accumulate nine points, the same as leaders Bengaluru FC, FC Goa and Chennaiyin FC.
Lalchhuanmawia Fanai was sent off for Pune Authentic Marcus Martin Jersey but Ranko Popovic's side defended resolutely to take all three points and hand Jamshedpur FC their first loss in the league.
It took FC Pune City 30 minutes to break through the Jamshedpur FC defence that had kept four consecutive clean sheets in the ISL. Danny Salazar Womens Jersey Mehtab Hossain's foul on Marcelinho gave Pune a chance to launch one into the opposition box where Adil Khan converted at the back post. Pune won the first header from Marcelinho's free-kick and Khan side-footed it home.
Steve Coppell's men reacted well after going a goal down. The home team immediately put Pune under an extended spell of pressure and in the 44th minute, they had the ball in the opposition net.Matheus Trindade's cross from the left was turned into a Pune goal by Izu Azuka, but the Nigerian was flagged offside before he could celebrate.
Two minutes into the second half, Pune had a great chance to double their lead. Emiliano Alfaro released Diego Carlos on the right who drilled in a low cross across the face of the goal. Both Marcelinho and Isaac were in the box but failed to turn the ball home.
Unable to break through the Pune defence, Steve Coppell brought on Kervens Belfort to replace Trindade in the 66th minute but it was Popovic's side that looked likely to pull one more ahead.
With just 10 minutes left on the clock, Pune's efforts to take all three points suffered a big blow after Lalchhuanmawia Fanai was given the marching orders for his foul on Bikash Jairu. The Pune left-back was already on a yellow card when he was adjudged to have caught Jairu with his flailing arm.
But even with a man down, the visitors held on to their lead to secure full points. NHL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Usa NHL Hockey Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap
