Until this season, Brittany Force would typically dismiss questions about whether she could win a championship in the NHRAs marquee Top Fuel category. Tahir Whitehead Jersey .I was like, Just let me get my first win, she said this week. Let me get over that hurdle first, and then well go from there. Now, the No. 3 daughter of drag racing legend John Force can look at things differently.The most outstanding female performer in a strong year for women in drag racing, Force scored her first Top Fuel victory in 2016 and then added two more. She has set career highs for round wins with 33 and final-round appearances with five, and if she holds onto fourth place through this weekends Auto Club NHRA Finals, shell record the highest finish by a woman in Top Fuel since Shirley Muldowney in 1982.Brittany Force cant win the championship this year -- Antron Brown clinched his third title two weeks ago at Las Vegas -- but her breakout season positions her as a championship contender for next year.Muldowney won Top Fuel titles in 1978, 80 and 82, and no woman has won a championship in the NHRAs two fire-breathing nitro categories since. Angelle Sampey won Pro Stock Motorcycle titles in 2000, 01 and 02, and Erica Enders captured Pro Stock championships in 2014 and 15, but in Top Fuel and Funny Car, nada.Its definitely not out of our reach, and its something were going for, Force said. Obviously, Shirley was the one who opened the door for women in NHRA drag racing. This sport is still male dominated and always will be. But its growing for the women, and I think it will continue building.The NHRA billed this season early on as the Year of the Women, and it has indeed been a pretty good season for the handful of female drivers who make a living in the sport. Six female drivers in four divisions made it to The Countdown, the NHRAs version of the playoffs, and five of them won races.In Top Fuel, Leah Pritchett earned her first career victory early in the season at Phoenix -- beating Force in the categorys first all-female final since 1982 -- and shes seventh in the points after advancing to the semifinals in two of the last three races.Courtney Force, Brittanys younger sister, and Alexis DeJoria each made The Countdown in Funny Car. Courtney picked up her eighth career victory in May at Houston and won the Traxxas Shootout special event in September, and she sits seventh in points. DeJoria earned her fourth career victory early in the season at Las Vegas and ranks 10th, although she missed the eliminations in the last race and wont race this weekend because of a concussion.Sampey picked up her first Pro Stock Motorcycle victory since 2007 and raced to two runner-up finishes, and shes fourth in the points, with the three men in front her separated by only three points.Enders has been the enigma among the group. After winning 15 times in 2014 and 2015, she and her team struggled to adapt to Pro Stocks 2016 rule changes and a switch from Chevrolet to Dodge, and she has gone winless. She did qualify for the Countdown, and she ranks 10th heading to Pomona.Brittany Force hasnt looked back since getting her emotional first win at Gainesville, Florida, in March.We made a lot of changes going into 2016, and we were able to able to finally bring home that first win, she said. That will probably still be one of the biggest moments in my career. It was something I was going after for so long and to finally get there, it was just a really proud moment. But to win in Charlotte [the 4Wide Nationals] not too long after that and then in Brainard [Minnesota], its been an outstanding year for us and Im really anxious to see what well do next year.Eighteen months ago, she was facing the prospect of not being able to finish the season for lack of sponsorship. John Force Racing was trying to rebound from the loss of longtime sponsors Castrol Oil and Ford, and Brittanys dragster had no primary sponsor.Thats when Brittany and Courtney drew on their marketing and people skills to try and make something happen with Monster Energy Drink. Wed been to Monster a few years earlier, 2011 or 12, and spoke to them, and they just werent interested, Brittany said. They just werent ready to get back into the drag racing.But maybe the company could be convinced. After all, Monster had sponsorships in 26 motorsports divisions, and was located near the Force shop in Yorba Linda, California.So Courtney and I just happened to meet their vice president of motorsports marketing [Mitch Covington] at a wedding, and we pushed on him all weekend, Brittany said. It was just by chance he happened to be there, and we pushed all weekend long on him, and hes like, Nope, we are done in drag racing. But persistence paid off, and the Force sisters were invited to the Monster corporate offices the following week to make a pitch.Once we got in there, they just kind of changed their mind and decided to take a chance on us, Brittany said. I hope theyre happy. Weve brought home three wins for them, and theyve been awesome to work with. Its just by chance we met [Covington] at a wedding, and we got into the board room and met with the bosses, and they really liked Courtneys and my personality, our passion or driving.We were girls in the sport, and they said they had a lot of female athletes, but none in their motorsports division, and I think that was the key.And now the pieces are in place -- just maybe -- for Brittany Force to make a run at the championship in 2017.

Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. MANCHESTER, England -- Emerging from the shadows, Paul Pogba -- a red devil emblazoned on the side of his head -- removed his hood, looked straight into the camera and uttered the words Manchester United fans had been waiting to hear: Im back.With that 26-second video teaser released by United early Tuesday, the France midfielder became the worlds most expensive footballer at around 105 million euros ($116 million) and Englands biggest club made another statement of intent during its latest offseason of heavy spending that moved close to $200 million.I just went for a holiday, said Pogba, who left United at age 19 for Juventus four years ago, virtually for nothing when his first contract with the club expired. Ive come back home.This was the new Man United at work: Breaking the world transfer record; announcing the signing after midnight local time to suit foreign audiences; a series of glitzy videos included one with a grime artist where Pogba produces some impressive dance moves.United will hope the 23-year-old Pogba saves his best work for the football field, though. And hes certainly dreaming big in his new era for the club under Jose Mourinho.First of all, win the league for the first time with United because I hadnt won the league when I left, Pogba said. The Champions League of course and, personally, one of my dreams is to win the Ballon dOr (FIFAs world player of the year award).That will come with time hopefully, but first the Premier League -- Ive never done it.Pogba said he was not bothered about the world-record price tag, which Juventus said would be paid over two years, and that his return to United, nicknamed the Red Devils, was destiny -- and predicted by his mother.My mum told me I would come back here and I told her, `You never know, youll see, he said. For myself as well its a big challenge, too, just to come back to where I came from, where I grew up, where I started. I didnt finish what I started here so I think I came here to finish it.United has missed out on some of its No. 1 transfer targets in previous offseasons -- notably Gareth Bale and Cesc Fabregas in 2013 -- but was determined to push this one through, even if it meant paying a fee widely regarded as overpriced.United is one of the few clubs in world football that could afford this outlay, thoughh. Mitchell Trubisky Jersey. And if Pogba can help the team return to the top of the English and European game after lean years since Alex Fergusons retirement in 2013, it will be money well spent.Mourinhos lineup for the new season is starting to have a fearsome look to it. The spine, in particular, is full of stars, winners and real potential -- David de Gea, new 30-million-pound signing Eric Bailly, Pogba, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.The front five of Ibrahimovic, Rooney, Anthony Martial, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pogba has plenty of goals, power and quality in it, an upgrade on what Louis van Gaal had last season.United has finished seventh, fourth and fifth in the post-Ferguson years, but is one of the title favorites this season.Pogba played only seven games -- all as a substitute -- in his first spell at United, which ended sourly when he allowed his contract to run down and joined Juventus. United got only 800,000 pounds (now around $1 million) in compensation for a player who was then just a precocious teenager.Ferguson was unhappy with Pogbas attitude in the last months of his contract, and didnt play the Frenchman even during an injury crisis in the teams midfield. For a game against Blackburn in December 2011, Ferguson played full back Rafael da Silva in center midfield along with Park Ji-sung, with Pogba on the bench.That was the last straw for a player who was desperate for a chance to impress his manager.Pogba can be sure hell be a guaranteed starter this time round at Old Trafford, with Mourinho saying the midfielder has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.Mourinho also had a message for managers like Arsene Wenger and Juergen Klopp of Liverpool, who have suggested United was paying too much for Pogba.When I heard some of the comments and heard some of the managers criticizing that, I dont think they ever have this problem because, to have this problem, you need to be at one of the top clubs in the world, Mourinho said. So at Man United, it can happen.Mourinho said Pogba was like a kid who is back to his old school.I think at adaptation level, hes not a new player, Mourinho said, hes just a kid back home again.

Each week, we will highlight players on so-called underdog teams, those who will turn college football upside down by helping to pull off upsets. Ryan Kent Jersey . (Last weeks results: straight up: 2-3; against the spread: 2-3; Season totals: straight up 17-23; against the spread 24-15-1)Here are five upset-makers to watch for Week 9.

The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. Nico Rosberg says the pain of losing the 2015 Formula One title to Lewis Hamilton at that years U.S. Grand Prix in Austin spurred him on to win this years championship.Rosberg lost the title with three rounds to spare last year, handing Hamilton the race win he needed in the final laps after making a mistake. After the race, a dejected Rosberg infamously threw a Mercedes cap at his teammate as they waited to take their place on the podium.However, Hamilton did not win again until May the following year, while Rosberg claimed seven victories in a row -- including the first four of 2016. Rosberg admits he was rejuvenated by the events in Austin.It really was a horrible experience for me to lose the championship to Lewis in the way that I did that day, said Rosberg in a video shared on his Facebook.I spent two days on my own after that just thinking about that. Im proud to be able to always come out from difficult moments stronger. I really manage to do that quite well, which Im prouud of. Ben Woodburn Liverpool Jersey. And after that race I won seven races on the trot and that definitely the kick-start of this championship. I really gave it everything I had this year. There wasnt a stone that I left unturned in commitment and determination and in avenues to explore to become a better racing driver.Though a key moment in the championship was Lewis Hamiltons engine failure in Malaysia, Rosberg says the pressure did not start until the following race, where he won in Japan to take Hamiltons destiny out of his own hands.The changing moment was Suzuka for me, when all of a sudden had a 33-point lead and that meant that it was in my hands. Its mine to lose, because it was enough to do a second, second, second, and third or whatever. And thats when the pressure really started for me because it became real, the chance to win the championship and beat Lewis.

COLUMBIA, Mo. Paul Thompson Jersey . -- No. 20 Arizona looked polished and poised as it defeated Missouri for the third consecutive season, cruising to a 79-60 victory Saturday in its first true road game of the season.Rawle Alkins led the way for the Wildcats with 19 points and nine rebounds. Kobi Simmons had 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting, and Kadeem Allen added 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists.The Wildcats (8-2) jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first 3:12, eventually taking a 25-8 lead with 10:29 remaining in the first half. From that point, Missouri outscored Arizona 28-16 in the half, including a 7-0 run to end the opening 20 minutes.The Tigers (5-4) continued to chip away at Arizonas lead, eventually cutting the deficit to 45-41 early in the second half. However, the Wildcats responded with a 26-4 run that included a Missouri scoring drought of 6:59, halting any momentum the Tigers had mustered.I thought we did great job of coming back, Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. I was really proud of our guys and the way they competed. In the second half early, we had some chances, and then they went on a great run and for all practical purposes, put the game out of reach.Kevin Puryear had a team-best 11 points and seven rebounds. Leading scorer Frankie Hughes was held in check by the Wildcats backcourt, scoring 10 points on 2-of-13 shooting. Russell Woods had eight points and six rebounds, and Cullen VanLeer added eight points, all in the first half.A reported crowd of over 10,000 was on hand for the only currently ranked opponent on Missouris home schedule.VanLeer attributed the Tigers comeback efforts to the home crowd energy.The magnitude of the crowd was really nice to have. We appreciated everyone that came out. We were upset we couldnt get the win today, but hopefully we can continue to get bigger crowds and itll help us get rhythm and flow in the game, VanLeer said.Arizona dominated the glass, outrebounding Missouri 46-28, its worst rebounding margin of the season.The Wildcats led wire-to-wire despite nearly doubling Missouris turnovers, 15-8, and committing 22 fouls to the Tigers 11. Missouri shot 66.7 percent from the free throw line, including 9 of 17 in the second half.BIG PICTUREArizona: The Wildcats entered the game shooting 36.6 percent from 3-point range, but caught fire early against the Tigers, shooting 54.2 percent. Missouri made just 1 of 8 3-point attempts in the second half while the Wildcats made 6 of 10. Missouri was coming off a season-high 3-point output against Miami (Ohio).Missouri: A tenacious on-ball defender, Missouri point guard Terrence Phillips has struggled with foul trouble in recent games. In Mondays 81-55 win over Miami (Ohio) Phillips played only 10 minutes in the second half, finishing with four fouls. He picked up his third foul 3:56 into the second half, limiting him to just 16 minutes against the Wildcats.PIVOTAL MOMENTWoods received a bounce pass in the lane on a fast break and gathered for a two-handed slam in front of the Missouri student section that would have cut the deficit to 45-43, but missed the dunk. On the ensuing Arizona possession, Woods was whistled for a foul, leading to two free throws by Arizona forward Dusan Ristic, who finished with 12 points and six rebounds.LET DOWNFreshman 7-footer Lauri Markkanen entered the game as Arizonas leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 17.8 points and 7.2 rebounds. Against Missouri, the native of Finland had a season-low eight points to go with six rebounds, and fouled out with 2:53 remaining.Puryear discussed his approach to defending Markkanen.Just being physical with him, Puryear said. Not letting him get comfortable with where he was on the floor with the ball. He likes to operate in the mid-post area, so I tried to eliminate that.UP NEXTArizona: hosts Grand Canyon on Wednesday.Missouri: hosts Eastern Illinois next Saturday. Oscar Lindberg Jersey .

Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today. Who is general manager Steve Yzerman watching? LeBrun: Over the last 48 hours, hes taken in the home-and-home between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche with Jamie Benn and Matt Duchene being the obvious targets.Former Wales No 8 Scott Quinnell was confident that Wales would beat England in the 2015 World Cup, but says Saturdays Six Nations clash will be a much closer affair. Wales are being touted as Englands first real test under new coach Eddie Jones as Warren Gatlands men return to Twickenham where they beat England 28-25 last September.That loss ultimately cost England a place in the quarter-finals as they fell to Australia the following week and much is being made of England finally getting their revenge. England Rugby star Jack Nowell, with the help of Mike Brown & Maro Itoje, give us a lesson in beating defenders. Quinnell agrees that England are in a far better place than they were in the World Cup, but he believes Wales are too.Psychologically and physically, England are starting to play the type of rugby they want to play and are renowned for, said Quinnell on the Sky Sports Rugby Union podcast.I know England say they are in a much better place than they were in during the World Cup, but then so are Wales. Rob Evans on the charge for Wales Wales have some key players back - like Jonathan Davies and Rhys Webb - and other players like Liam Williams are more established. Alex Cuthbert is coming into some form - he got dropped but has worked really hard and is coming back towards the Alex Cuthbert we knew from a couple of years ago.Up front, Rob Evans has come in and done a brilliant job. I thought he was a bit of a gamble to start with, but he has proved me wrong and has gone out there and owned that No 1 jersey. Quinnell hopes Tuilagi does not get to run too much against Wales One of Englands problem areas in the World Cup was centre, but Quinnell is excited about the return of Manu Tuilagi, who has been named on the bench. James Neal Jersey. .Tuilagi is one of those guys that you will pay good money to go and watch, said Quinnell. I am lucky to travel all over Europe and commentate on rugby, but I get excited about seeing him with the ball and in full flow. Lets hope he does not get too much of the ball on Saturday. Ex-England skipper Nick Easter looks ahead to this weekends big Six Nations clash as Wales travel to Twickenham When Tuilagi does come in, it will make a physical game even tougher as he is set to collide with Jamie Roberts.I think Jamie Roberts is in the form of his life at the moment. He has really stood up and he puts pressure on the opposition to really perform, added the former British and Irish Lions No 8.Dont be surprised every now and again if Alex Cuthbert and George North just drop off his shoulder. Hopefully that will create a little bit of space out wide as well. Sky Sports Rugby Union Podcast - 9th March I cannot wait for this game. It is one of the great weeks in world rugby when the old enemy comes around. It does not get much tougher than going to Twickenham. But I was speaking with someone who was with the players the other night and boy, are they up for it.I knew Wales were going to beat England in the World Cup - I said it for months and months - but this one is too close to call. It is going to be a very physical game. If you are sat in Twickenham on Saturday, put your seat belt on because it is going to be a close game.

Nico Rosberg says Ferrari and Mercedes are evenly matched in pre-season testing - despite the Silver Arrows appearing to boast a half-second advantage. After only using the medium tyres in the first test at Barcelona last week, Rosberg opened up a vast gap at the top of the timesheets on Tuesday morning with a qualifying simulation run on soft tyres.Although Sebastian Vettels lap of 1:22.810 on ultrasofts remains the fastest of testing so far, Rosbergs 1:23.022 was seven tenths faster than the best either Vettel or his Scuderia team-mate Kimi Raikkonen have produced on identical soft rubber. Earlier in the day, Rosberg had also set a new benchmark of 1:24.329 on the mediums - half a second ahead of Ferraris best time, with Williams a further three tenths adrift. Follow the test live Keep up to date with the final test with our live blog Nevertheless, Rosberg is convinced Mercedes will have close company at the front of the field when the new season starts in Australia on March 20.Its very close between Ferrari and us - and another team might be there as well, Rosberg told Sky Sports News HQ. A quick look at Nico Rosberg in his Mercedes during pre-season testing The German rounded off 2015 with three successive victories and has recorded more laps than any other driver in the first test last week. But its the laps Rosberg produces on Saturday afternoons in qualifying in 2016 which may well prove the most important of the year as he strives to ward off the threat from Ferrari and beat team-mate Lewis Hamilton to the world championship.It was all the more enjoyable to take the car to the limits, added Nico.

SAN DIEGO -- It was a familiar scene at Mondays San Diego Chargers practice: Joey Bosa wasnt working. Adidas Joel Ward Jersey .Bosa, who missed 31 days and the preseason because of a contract dispute, didnt participate in the workout.The Chargers began preparations for Sundays opener against the Kansas City Chiefs without their top draft pick. Bosa, the third overall selection, watched the session with his left leg wrapped and he walked with a slight limp.He was a little tight today, so we decided to hold him out, coach Mike McCoy said. We are going take it a day at a time and its all part of the process we are going to go through. When he is ready to participate and be in game shape, he will be out there ready to play.While the injury isnt considered serious, it calls into question Bosas status for Sunday.But McCoy said it was the normal `bumps and bruises that Bosa, a defensive end, is going through. Bosa hasnt taken part in contact drills and McCoy wasnt sure if the team would be in pads later this week.I just want to get him feeling like he is ready to roll and to play in a game, McCoy said.Right guard D.J.

LEVI, Finland -- Even with less pre-season slalom training than usual, American skier Mikaela Shiffrin keeps dominating her favorite discipline.The Olympic and world champion shifted her focus in practice to super-G and even downhill, but her reign in the slalom discipline has remained unaffected.Shiffrin held on to a comfortable opening-run lead to win the first womens World Cup slalom of the season on Saturday.She finished in a two-run combined time of 1 minute, 52.71 seconds, 0.67 ahead of Switzerlands Wendy Holdener. Slovakias Petra Vlhova came 0.75 back in third.Now I almost feel like I wish there was more time before the next races so I could train more and improve more, Shiffrin said about increasing the number of speed events on her schedule.The rest of Saturdays field trailed Shiffrin by at least a second, while Swedens Frida Hansdotter, who was runner-up after the opening leg, failed to finish her second run.I am never confident, really, said Shiffrin, who has won all nine slaloms that she has competed in since February 2015. However, Hansdotter took the slalom title last season as Shiffrin missed five races because of a knee injury.Shiffrins ninth consecutive win left her one short of Janica Kostelics record. The Croatian great won 10 straight slaloms that she competed in between December 1999 and February 2001.Still, Shiffrin wouldnt take anything for granted, referring to the strength of her challengers.Frida went out, and Wendy skied really strong but she had a huge mistake the first run, the American said. Without that mistake she would have been even faster, and Petra was really good as well.The victory in northern Finland earned Shiffrin an usual prize -- a reindeer. Shee got one from her previous win here in 2013 and called him `Rudolph. Adidas Brent Burns Jersey. . This time she was going to call him `Sven -- after the reindeer from the movie Frozen.It was Shiffrins 21st career win and 20th in slalom, matching Kostelics number of wins. Only Austrias Marlies Raich (35) and Swiss pair Vreni Schneider (34) and Erika Hess (21) won more slaloms.Racing down the slope in the orange glow of the setting Arctic sun, Shiffrin took a 0.72-second lead over Hansdotter and Holdener, who shared second place after the opening run.While Holdener put pressure on Shiffrin with a near-flawless second attempt, Hansdotter straddled a gate when she entered the steep pitch and failed to finish.Shiffrin wasnt clean from the start of her final run and had lost 0.13 on Holdener at the first split, but the American accelerated to extend her lead to 0.92 before avoiding risks in the final part of her run.The victory gave Shiffrin, who placed second in the season-opening GS last month, the lead in the overall standings with 180 points, 80 clear of Lara Gut.The overall champion from Switzerland won the race last month but usually does not compete in slaloms.The 18-year-old Melanie Meillard of Switzerland, who was competing in her fourth World Cup race, started in 40th but finished sixth, 1.87 off the lead.Austrias Bernadette Schild, younger sister of retired slalom great Marlies Raich, failed to qualify for the second run after damaging the edge of a ski early in her run and finishing 3.92 seconds behind Shiffrin.A mens slalom on the same course is scheduled for Sunday.

Before joining Roma three years ago, he led Lille to a domestic double, winning the French Cup and Ligue 1 title in 2011.Marseille, the only French team to win the Champions League back in 1993, has won the French title nine times but has fallen behind since PSG was taken over by Qatari investors five years ago.Garcia quickly endeared himself to Roma fans by guiding the club to 10 straight wins to open the 2013-14 season. But he was replaced by Luciano Spalletti last January following a string of poor results. The Frenchman was hired in 2013 and Roma finished runner-up in his first two seasons.When I met Rudi, he told me right away that he wanted to win the Champions League, McCourt said. I knew immediately he was the man for the Marseille coaching position.McCourt, the 63-year-old former owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has pledged to build a team that will be able to challenge PSG and promised fans he would push the club to the highest ranks of European football. Ryan Getzlaf Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Steven Stamkos Jersey . It was the second consecutive win for the Pacers (2-5), who lost their first five preseason games. Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. . Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night. "We won that game because of Tony Parkers aggressiveness," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "His juice; his aggression all night long.England are now two matches away from claiming their first Six Nations Grand Slam title in 13 years after a 21-10 win against Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday. Englands next challenge is against Wales in what is being billed as the Championship decider as well as their chance to avenge their 25-28 loss to Wales in the 2015 World Cup.That loss, along with defeat at the hands of Australia, saw England knocked out of the competition as they became the first host nation in World Cup history not to progress through to the knockout stages. Mike Brown has not been cited for an incident against Ireland Stuart Lancaster lost his job in the fall-out to the World Cup and was replaced by Australian Eddie Jones, who became the first non-Englishman to coach the Red Rose.The 56-year-old has kept faith with the majority of the squad inherited from Lancaster, and there is a huge sense of optimism within the England camp following wins over Scotland, Italy and Ireland. There were plenty of positives from that win against Ireland, including the performances of Billy Vunipola, George Kruis and Maro Itoje.However, Jones side conceded 12 penalties including two yellow cards for James Haskell and Danny Care and Will Greenwood says England need to get the balance right. Englands George Kruis wins lineout ball ahead of Jamie Heaslip of Ireland England have tried to find that bite, find that edge, said Greenwood on the Rugby Club Wrap-Up.By winning the games they have shown they have reacted to the referee and adapted their game. Lets not forget that they went behind against Ireland - 10 points to six. You can argue until the cows come home if Haskells shot was a yellow card. But it is inviting trouble if you dump someone, slightly late with no arms and stay on your feet. Referees are going to give it so why risk it? 2003 World Cup winner Will Greenwood believes Eddie Jones is enjoying his time in England despite media ban The Danny Care yellow is an interesting one - Lawrence Dallaglio would say it was a great yellow, a team yellow. P.K Subban Jersey. Take one for the team where you dont want to concede seven points.I still think England are giving away the odd daft penalty, but they are competitive scrapping, in your face, they are a horrible side to play against. The question is can you have one with the other - super tricky when you are developing.Lucky Brown? James Haskell (centre) is shown the yellow card by the referee Many feel that England full-back Mike Brown was fortunate not to have seen yellow after his fly-hack on a ball at the ruck made contact with Conor Murrays head.Irelands scrum-half required stitches above his eye and the Six Nations organisers have announced that Brown will not be cited for the incident, but Greenwood claimed he would have had no complaints if Brown was yellow carded at the time.Conor Murray is tackled and has placed the ball back - its there waiting to be kicked, explained Greenwood.We often applaud Joe Launchbury and Courtney Lawes for getting their size 13 boots through. If you are allowed to play the ball in the ruck with your feet then by definition what Mike Brown has done is at worse clumsy. Englands Maro Itoje enjoyed an impressive debut for England When someone gets cut and stitches then you notice it a little bit more. Its like a punch if you swing and connect then its 12 weeks, but if you swing and miss then its hes being a bit of a naughty boy.Mike Brown attracts referees attention with his style of play. Eddie Jones will not want to temper him or take his edge away but will ask him to consider going in and throwing feet around like that.Had he received a yellow I think there would have been very few people saying it was harsh.Should Mike Brown have been cited?

Joel Matip Jersey . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. Joel Matip Liverpool Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville used a big start to the second half to break away Saturday.Asia Durr scored a career-high 34 points in less than three quarters and No. 5 Louisville beat Bowling Green 83-58 in the first game of the Basketball Hall of Fame Challenge.The Cardinals (4-0) used an 18-2 run over the first 2:36 of the second half to break it open. Durr, a sophomore guard, scored the first 13 points herself to make it 49-27 with 8:29 left in the third quarter.Every time we came down the court, they were trying to find me, the 5-foot-10 Durr said. I knocked them down. I was thankful for that.Some poor first-half shooting by Louisville, which made just 5 of 21 shots in the second quarter, allowed the Falcons to stay close throughout the first half. But when Louisville went on its run in the third, Bowling Green helped by committing 14 of its 32 turnovers during the quarter.Durr, who came to Louisville as the top-rated recruit in her class and won Parade Magazines High School Player of the Year award in 2015, went 8 of 13 from 3-point range to top her previous career high of seven. She left the game with 4:30 to go in the third quarter. Her previous scoring best was 24 points, which came in the season opener at Tennessee-Martin.At this time last season, Durr was experiencing pain after going through surgery to repair a torn groin muscle. The pain was so bad that it limited her game, and Louisville coaches considered redshirting her.Its amazing to watch just from last year and to see how shes playing right now, forward Myisha Hines-Allen said. Shes grown so much with her confidence. I knew she was a great player already, but just to see this -- actually playing with her on the court -- is amazing.Not everything wwent well though for Louisville. Ben Woodburn Jersey. The Cardinals lost the rebounding battle 40-39 and allowed 11 offensive boards in the second half. Thats an issue of concern for coach Jeff Walz.When we start playing some teams that have some size to them, its going to be a long night, he said.Clare Glowniak led the Falcons (0-3) with 11 points.Hines-Allen added 13 for Louisville, which shot 45.5 percent, compared with Bowling Greens 35.2 percent.BIG PICTURELouisville: The margin could have been a lot wider, but coach Jeff Walz chose to use his bench heavily to save his starters for the next two days, when they play two more games as part of the challenge.Bowling Green: For the second straight contest, a big run haunted the Falcons, who let a fourth-quarter lead disappear against Cincinnati on Tuesday.SHE SAID ITWe played an elite level team today that can rebound at the elite level, that can press at an elite level. This is a team thats going to go to the Final Four. -- Bowling Green coach Jennifer Roos.LETDOWNAfter making 9 of 14 shots and scoring 27 in a 91-72 win at Middle Tennessee Wednesday, Mariya Moore struggled. The junior forward made just 1 of 9 Saturday, but she still found other ways to contribute as she posted a team-best six assists.POLL IMPLICATIONSDespite some early shooting woes, Louisville came out on fire in the third quarter and put the Falcons away as expected. As long as the Cardinals dont experience any hiccups later on this weekend, their ranking should remain the same.UP NEXTLouisville hosts Lafayette on Sunday.Bowling Green plays Chattanooga on Sunday in Louisville.

Fremantles off-season woes have continued with injured midfielder Harley Bennell having his car impounded after he was stopped by police, who discovered he was driving without a licence.

Cubs Jerseys From China . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. Cheap Cubs Jerseys .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. EUGENE, Ore. -- Pick a distance, any distance, and Galen Rupp can run it.Already qualified for the marathon, Rupp added the 10,000 meters to his list Friday night at Olympic trials. Next up, hell try to make it at 5K, as well.If -- more like when -- that happens, he says hell choose two of the three to run in Rio. Racing in all three would simply be too much, even for Rupp.Rupp is leaning toward running the 10,000, especially given the way he won at trials. He threw surge after surge at Shadrack Kipchirchir and Leonard Korir -- both of whom run for the Armys World Class Athlete Program in Fort Carson, Colorado -- and finished to a loud ovation. No surprise, since Rupp rose to prominence at Hayward Field as a member of the Oregon Ducks.It was tough. It wasnt easy. I was pushing pretty hard, said Rupp, who finished in 27 minutes, 55.04 seconds, more than 6 second clear of Kipchirchir. I made a couple surges with five or six laps to go, kind of testing out Shadrack. He was always on me. He was right there. I wanted to make it a tough race.Now, Rupp will recover. Hes got the first round of the 5,000 on Monday and -- if he qualifies -- the final five days later.Rupp won the Olympic marathon trials during his debut at that distance in February in Loss Angeles. Authentic Cubs Jerseys. Nothing seems to slow him down.But it has been tough to balance the training between the marathon and 5,000. For the marathon, he goes on more long runs. For the 5,000, he does more speed work.We run a fine line, do a lot of miles -- a lot of long, hard runs, Rupp explained. Its hard to recover from. Its really hard to do that, come back and do the speed work. Its been a little bit of a learning process, sometimes coming back too soon and cant hit a workout. Were always adjusting and figuring it out.The 30-year-old Rupp is the Olympic silver medalist in the 10,000 meters.What impresses me most is his work ethic, his mental toughness, his coach, Alberto Salazar, said. All the pressure and limelight on him, sometimes bad, sometimes good. He doesnt care. He puts it aside.As for his say in the matter of what races Rupp will run, Salazar wants to wait and see.Hell make a decision between 5,000 and the marathon. He cant run all three, Salazar said. He does everything right. He dedicates his life (to running). The only thing that ever takes him away from running for an instant is his family. Thats it.
