Saturday, kick-off 14:30Principality Stadium, CardiffWarren Gatland might not be there to patrol the touchline of the Principality Stadium this autumn, but Wales still have plenty to prove as Australia arrive in Cardiff. Interim head coach Rob Howley and his players will be determined to end a run of 11 straight defeats to the Wallabies, and were buoyed by an impressive if fruitless three-Test series against the All Blacks in June. Australia endured a fairly frustrating Rugby Championship, having suffered a home whitewash at the hands of England, and have plenty to prove themselves this month. Both coaches had have injury woes to contend with but given the quality and experience still on display, this promises to be an enthralling contest.Team newsWales are without captain Sam Warburton, vice-captain Alun Wyn Jones as well as influential No. 8 Taulupe Faletau and fullback Liam Williams. Howley is able to call on Leigh Halfpenny for the first time in 14 months, though, while Gethin Jenkins captains the side on his 127th Wales appearance.Australia arrive in Cardiff missing several key players themselves, with Samu Kerevi injured, Dean Mumm serving a one-week suspension and Will Genia in Paris, after Stade Francais refused to release him. David Pocock is back for the Wallabies, though, starting in an unfamiliar blindside role.Wales: Halfpenny, Cuthbert, J. Davies, Roberts, North, Biggar, Webb; Jenkins (captain), Owens, Lee, B. Davies, Charteris, Lydiate, Tipuric, Moriarty.Replacements: Baldwin, Smith, Francis, Hill, King, G. Davies, S. Davies, Amos.Australia: Folau; Haylett-Petty, Kuridrani, Hodge, Speight; Foley, Phipps; Sio, Moore (captain), Kepu, Arnold, Coleman, Pocock, Hooper, Timani.Replacements: Latu, Slipper, Alaalatoa, Simmons, Fardy, Frisby, Cooper, Naivalu.Key head-to-headDavid Pocock has been shifted to the No. 6 shirt ostensibly to deal with the physicality of Wales back row. The hosts will not be at full strength on Saturday afternoon, but they can still call on the collective powers of Dan Lydiate, Justin Tipuric and Ross Moriarty. The battle of the flankers - Lydiate and Tipuric against Pocock and Michael Hooper - may well prove pivotal to the outcome. Whoever gains the upper hand in that area will put their teammates on the front foot.Key stats*Seven of Wales 11 consecutive defeats to Australia have come by less than seven points.*During that run Australia average 24.3 points per game, while Wales average 17.9.*Captain Gethin Jenkins is one of only three survivors from the last Wales team to beat Australia. Centre Jamie Roberts and lock Luke Charteris - an unused replacement that day - are the others.OddsGiven their fine recent form against Wales, it should come as little surprise that Australia are 5/8 favourites to notch a 12th successive victory in the fixture with Unibet. The same firm has priced the hosts at 32/25 to end their miserable run, while George North and Israel Folau are both 9/1 to score the games first try.PredictionNeither team is at full strength, and that could end up playing into Wales hands. Justin Tipuric will want to impress on a rare start in the No. 7 jersey, while the likes of Ross Moriarty, Cory Hill and Sam Davies are unscarred by their countrys run of defeats. If recent history tells us anything it is that it will be close, but were tipping the hosts to nick it.

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. Quincy Williams II Jersey . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from.The Washington Redskins take on the Cincinnati Bengals live from Wembley Stadium on Sunday. Sky Sports assess the key players that could make the difference in London.Kirk CousinsThe franchise-tagged quarterback struggled in the early part of the season, as players and fans questioned his ability to lead the team. However, a four-game winning streak went a long way to restoring confidence in Cousins. Despite the week seven loss to the Detroit Lions, it was another encouraging performance and if Cousins can stay mistake free, he gives Washington a chance to get to their bye week at 5-3. Cousins, who has called this game a business trip, has a specialised sleep rota and is wearing glasses at night to help minimise any jet lag effects. If his on-field execution is as calculated as his preparation, the Redskins should be confident of a big performance from the QB.Jamison CrowderIt has been a breakout season for the second-year wide receiver, who already has four touchdowns this season, surpassing the three he scored last season. Crowder has become Cousins favourite receiver, but he also poses a threat as a punt returner, leading the league with 207 yards. Jamison Crowder punt return The Redskins are currently ranked third for passing yards this season and Crowder has been a key contributor. Expect him to see a lot of the ball on Sunday.Jordan ReedThe Redskins are a different proposition with their tight end at full fitness. Reed had been cleared following a concussion suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles, but regressed and missed the loss against the Lions. Despite his insistence that he is 100%, it is still unclear whether Reed will travel to London.If he does make the plaane, Reed offers Washington a legitimate red zone threat that they have been missing.ddddddddddddHe scored 11 touchdowns last year, and has the potential to be the second best tight end in the league, if he can stay healthy. Tight end Jordan Reed #86 of the Washington Redskins NFL Wembley: Ways to Watch Week eight marks the end of the International Series and Sky Sports has every angle covered. DeSean JacksonJackson has had an underwhelming first half of the season by his own standards. After an impressive pre-season, it was widely expected that Washingtons offensive hopes would rest on the shoulders of the three-time Pro Bowler. However, Jackson has been under 40 yards on four different occasions this season, and hasnt had 100 yards receiving since week one against the Steelers. DeSean Jackson can be a dangerous weapon if Kirk Cousins and the Redskins utilise his pace Having said that, Jackson is a perennial threat as one of the fastest wide outs in the league. He has been limited by the system, used mainly in short routes, but if Cousins can find him in open space, there are few corners who can hang with him.DefenceAnother player battling to make the plane is cornerback Josh Norman, who suffered a concussion against Detroit. If Washington have to face A.J Green and the Bengals without their number one corner, it may be a tough afternoon for Redskins fans. Josh Norman is questionable after suffering a concussion last week You can watch the Bengals take on the Redskins on Sunday October 30, live on Sky Sports 3 from 1pm.
