Final when he joined the Auckland club for a world record transfer fee thought to be around £700,000. Phil Clark Antworten

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee believes its passing game is good enough to complement an exceptional running game.Now its just a matter of proving it.We have to do a better job of catching the ball as an entire offensive unit and putting the ball where it needs to be as well, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. I do see progress. Weve worked very hard on it all summer, and we worked hard on it in this stage of the game in training camp through five practices.Tennessee should be able to run the ball against just about anyone. Jalen Hurd, Alvin Kamara and quarterback Joshua Dobbs are all back after combining for 2,657 yards rushing and 30 touchdowns last season. But the Volunteers must pass effectively to keep defenses honest.Dobbs has 22 career starts to lead all active Southeastern Conference quarterbacks, and many of his receivers were highly touted recruits.But that hasnt translated to a consistently potent passing game. Tennessee ranked 64th among Football Bowl Subdivision teams last season in passing efficiency. Dobbs completed 59.6 percent of his passes, down from 63.3 percent in 2014.Dobbs said improving his accuracy has been a major point of emphasis as he prepares for his senior season.You look at statistics and everything, and a great completion percentage in the SEC is 65 percent and an extraordinary one is 70 percent, so thats what were aiming for, Dobbs said. Every ball you throw, you throw with a purpose. At the end of the day, you want to take care of the football and get the ball in the playmakers hands.First the Vols need to identify the playmakers on offense aside from Dobbs, Hurd and Kamara. The receiving corps still has plenty of questions after being decimated by injuries last season.Tennessees top returning wideout is junior Josh Malone, who caught 31 passes for 405 yards and two touchdowns last season. The Vols also return junior Josh Smith, who had 23 catches for 307 yards and two scores.The Vols ought to get more production from sophomores Preston Williams and Jauan Jennings. Williams, a former five-star recruit, wasnt declared eligible last year until late August and spent the rest of the season playing catchup. Jennings started six games at receiver last season even though the former high school quarterback was learning a new position.Jason Croom moved over from wide receiver to tight end and has seemed to adapt well to the switch. Croom, who redshirted last season with a knee injury, should team up with returning starter Ethan Wolf to provide multiple options at the tight end spot.This years group, weve got more veterans and weve got guys whove been here, so we can show the younger guys and bring them along faster than we could in the past, Malone said. Im pretty sure back a couple of years ago you all were still calling us a young wide receiver corps, and the next year we were still a young wide receiving corps. So this year I guess you can say were a veteran receiving corps.Not necessarily. Although Smith and Malone give the Vols a couple of experienced wideouts, Tennessee also has plenty of newcomers. The group includes junior-college transfer Jeff George plus freshmen Tyler Byrd, Marquez Callaway, Brandon Johnson and Latrell Williams.Tennessee may need some of them to contribute immediately.You can see they love football and they want to make an impact now, Dobbs said. Thats exactly what we need from them. Theyre going to have to step up and make some plays this year for us.---AP college football site: http://collegefootball.ap.orgNacer Chadli Jersey . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said.

One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Axel Witsel Jersey .com) - The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at Rexall Place.Sam Tomkins is ready to make his comeback after withstanding all that Wigan coach Shaun Wane could throw at him in training.The 27-year-old England full-back will end a nine-month injury lay-off when he begins his second stint with his home-town club in Fridays Super League top-four clash with Hull at the DW Stadium, live on Sky Sports 3 HD.Tomkins had been plagued by knee trouble since March 2015, early in his second season with New Zealand Warriors, and missed Englands Test series against the Kiwis in the autumn in order to undergo surgery in which he received a prosthetic posterior cruciate ligament. He resumed training with Wigan a month ago and got the nod to make his eagerly-awaited return after being put through a rigorous training session.I had three players flying into him and attacking him from everywhere for 20 minutes, said Wane. It was good. I enjoyed it but he hated it.Forwards Ryan Sutton, Greg Burke and Jack Higginson were given the task of testing Tomkins ability to stand up to the most ferocious of tackles. I dont worry about the first tackle; if you watched our training for the last two weeks, Ive been tackled more then than I have been in the last eight years. Sam Tomkins He loves that physical stuff,said Tomkins. I didnt enjoy it.It was me and Jake Shorrocks, a young lad whos got a similar knee injury, and it was the final tests of our knees, three forwards throwing their bodies into you, two holding you up and one coming in and pinning your knees.We both came through with our knees intact and if we can withstand that, we should be alright for a game.I dont worry about the first tackle; if you watched our training for the last two weeks, Ive been tackled more then than I have been in the last eight years.Tomkins, the 2012 Man of Steel, scored 144 tries in 152 appearances for Wigan from 2008 to the 2013 Grand Final when he joined the Auckland club for a world record transfer fee thought to be around £700,000. Phil Clarke brings you his the best tries from the 2016 Super League season However, he opted out of the final year of his three-year deal, citing homesickness, and Wigan swiftly re-signed him on a four-year deal.ddddddddddddTomkins, who became a father during the winter, is relieved to finally get the chance to make his return.Im glad its finally come to the time to get my boots on and get out there, he said. Ive been thinking about playing for a month.Ive been training with the boys for three or four weeks now. I started out with just a few sessions a week but recently Ive been in full training and I feel good.Its been tough to not put my hand up and ask to play but youve got to respect the timeframe after the operation.The first few months were very tough. When I signed back last year, I didnt think Id be sat on the sidelines for the first 12 games so that was hard for me. Barrie and Terry’s biggest hits from the first 13 rounds of Super League, six rounds of the Challenge Cup and 2016 World Club Series Wane says Tomkins is likely to start on the bench - for the first time since 2009 - and plans for him to play around 50 minutes.Ive not picked my team but hell play some part in it, he said. Im leaning towards him being on the bench but Ill have a chat with him and see how he comes through before deciding on the team on Wednesday.It means everything to have him back - hes one of the best players in the world but Im expecting nothing from him on Friday. Its like a pre-season game for him.He came round to my house for tea last night and I told him I expect nothing. The fans will expect a lot but in reality its his first match for a long time. Hes going to be a great asset long-term but I need to give him time to bed back in.Hes not going be rushed by anyone at this club.Watch Wigan v Hull FC live on Sky Sports 3 HD on Friday from 7.30pm.
