n team in the playoff and three more in New Years Six bowls, there werent enough left for every bowl with ties to the league.We Antworten

Widnes topping the Super League table, injury woes for Leeds and Huddersfield plus reffing concerns make this weeks Set of Six... Vikings on the chargeWhat a start to the year it has been for the Vikings. Sure theyre a game ahead of some of their title rivals, but after finishing last season in the bottom four, this is a dream start to the campaign. On Sunday they cruised to their first away win over Huddersfield in 20 years and went top of the Super League standings with a 36-18 victory.Head coach Denis Betts is delighted with his teams efforts and is hoping that their top-of-the-table standing will make them more ruthless. All the action from the Super League clash between Huddersfield and Widnes The lads are really made up with the fact weve been away from home three times and weve come out with six points from four games. We would have taken that early in the year, said Betts.This next month the games are going to be coming thick and fast and it will be a real test for us. It becomes a war of attrition and the squad gets tested.Its nice [to be top] at this stage, weve made a really good start but weve got to make sure we get a bit more ruthless.Rhinos not on the charge Watch all the tries from the Catalans Dragons 32-28 win over Leeds Rhinos It is quite the opposite for Brian McDermotts men, who suffered yet another defeat over the weekend, this time to Catalans. The home side had a few seasoned pros in their side but still Leeds would have at least hoped to give them a fight. As it was, a late comeback in the final 10 minutes courtesy of two tries was the only positive that came out of France that day. McDermott bemoaned the soft defence of his side in Perpignan, but he should be more worried about the soft defence of their title.We had too many periods where we were loose and defensively too many soft periods in the early stages, but we had a crack and had a dig, said McDermott.Im really pleased that the players found a way to get back into the game and effectively make it a close encounter, but I wont be consoling myself or consoling my players too much with that because we were poor in too many areas.Challenge Cup Fortunately for Leeds they werent the only defeat that stood out this weekend. Four Kingstone Press League 1 clubs were knocked out of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup by amateur opposition on Saturday.Newcastle Thunder were thrashed 30-4 at Halifax club Siddal, Hemel Stags went down 12-6 at Cumbrian outfit Kells, London Skolars were beaten 13-0 at Pilkington Recs, of St Helens, and South Wales Scorpions lost 37-20 at Featherstone Lions.Who will follow Chester at Hull KR? All the action from the Super League clash between Hull KR and St Helens There was to be no fairy-tale start to life without Chris Chester for Hull KR but they have to put that behind them as they begin their search for a new coach.Willie Poching took charge of the side following the standing down of head coach Chester earlier in the week and was rewarded with a spirited performance from the squad, despite the 31-22 loss to St Helens.Jamie Peacock has certainly faced more than his fair share of challenges on the field, but Rovers football manager faces his first real test in his new role at the KC Lightstream Stadium.Peacocks next appointment is going to be a huge test - whoever they do decide to bring in will want to spend some money on players. Hull KRs issues will not be solved with a change of coach as they just do not have the strength in depth to compete and are desperate for more talent.If you line Hull KRs team up with some of the leading squads, well Im afraid they just do not compare, said Sky Sports pundit Terry OConnor.I am not being disrespectful to the players, but if you were looking at your Hull KR fantasy team, how many players would you want to bring in? They need more players and a coach who can come in and get the best of what they have.Its going to be a difficult job.Referees under the spotlight again Highlights of Wigans win over Salford at the DW Stadium Salfords Ian Watson was not happy with a refereeing blunder that cost his side the chance of a big win over Wigan.Referee George Stokes and his touch judges failed to spot a knock-on by Wigan forward Taulima Tautai in the build-up to the match-winning try by winger Dom Manfredi.Im really disappointed with the way it ended because it looked like we should have had a share of the points, said Watson.The fact he knocked on at the last play-the-ball before the score doesnt help and the fact that we could see it in the stand and the referee and his officials cant is a big disappointment.Giants by name, not by nature Paul Anderson WAS not impressed with Huddersfields attitude There must be something in the water in Huddersfield that is causing injuries to all the players.They started the season with a long injury list and have been adding to it since then, and their misery was compounded by yet another injury as Jamie Ellis succumbed to a shoulder problem 24 minutes into the game against Widnes.Three-quarters of our salary cap have watched todays game from the stands, said head coach Paul Anderson.One or two might have a chance for Friday [against Leeds], but weve got to battle on - the key for us is to stick together.I thought Widnes were very good, but we were poor and pretty soft if Im honest. Our side was the same team that almost beat Wigan but our attitude was not quite right.If your attitude is not right, you get challenged and Widnes did that. They ran harder than us and they had more vigour in everything they did.

The deal is pending a physical, assistant general manager Bobby Evans said. Traded from Seattle to Baltimore on Aug. 30, Morse also can play first base and right field to give manager Bruce Bochy some flexibility in writing his lineup. Steve Bono Jersey . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set.

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. The Heart of Dallas Bowl will be a rematch between two teams that played in October -- and one of them is heading into the game with a 5-7 record.Unusual? Yes. But scenarios like this simply come with the territory now.With 80 bowl spots to fill, some postseason games ended up with odd matchups this year. North Texas will play in the Heart of Dallas Bowl after going 5-7, and the game will be a rematch against an Army teams it met six weeks ago. Mississippi State is also going to a bowl at 5-7. The Bulldogs face Miami (Ohio) in the St. Petersburg Bowl.Were fortunate to have the opportunity, North Texas coach Seth Littrell said. At the end of the day, we didnt even feel like we could get in this way, but we did, and so were going to take it.Hawaii is also heading to a bowl with a losing record. The Rainbow Warriors (6-7) will play in the Hawaii Bowl against Middle Tennessee. The reason some sub-.500 teams were given a reprieve is because there werent enough eligible teams to fill all the spots.That shortage also allows Army (6-5) and South Alabama (6-6) to go to bowls even though both have multiple wins over FCS schools. Teams are only supposed to count one FCS win for bowl eligibility purposes, but since there were openings, the Black Knights and Jaguars are in.South Alabama faces Air Force in the Arizona Bowl. The Jaguars were supposed to play LSU in November, but that game was canceled when the Tigers needed to play a rescheduled game against Florida. South Alabama played Presbyterian instead and won, so that switch may have been the difference between reaching a bowl and missing the postseason.There were sub-.500 teams in bowls last season too, so this may be the new normal in college football. North Texas and Mississippi State werent exactly apologizing Sunday. The Bulldogs Twitter account boasted that Mississippi State is one of only five Southeastern Conference schools to reach a bowl every season this decade.Since the Academic Progress Rate plays a role in which sub.-500 teams play on, coaches can takke pride in that.dddddddddddd.This is a great opportunity for one of the winningest senior classes in school history and for our program to build momentum for 2017, Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said in a statement. It also speaks volumes of our student-athletes for their commitment in the classroom to qualify for a bowl based on our successful APR.North Texas lost four of its last five games in the regular season, but reaching a bowl -- no matter how it happened -- is still a big step forward after the Mean Green went 1-11 in 2015.North Texas won 35-18 at Army on Oct. 22. Regular-season rematches are rare in bowls, but there are some positives for the Heart of Dallas Bowl in this matchup. The bowl was supposed to match Conference USA against the Big Ten, but with one Big Ten team in the playoff and three more in New Years Six bowls, there werent enough left for every bowl with ties to the league.We know that Army is going to bring a large contingency because the Texas area is one of their hotbeds, said Brant Ringler, the bowls executive director.North Texas in Denton, of course, isnt far from Dallas. Ringler said that was appealing as well.In the past couple years, you probably have noticed, the Conference USA championship has occurred, we received usually the champion or the runner-up, and it was probably going to look to be that way possibly this year as well, Ringler said. But when we had an opening in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl game that we also control, we did work out an agreement with Conference USA to have (runner-up Louisiana Tech) play in the Armed Forces Bowl. Therefore, it allowed us to be able to slide in the University of North Texas into the Heart of Dallas Bowl, which is a win-win for all of us all around.---More AP college football: and .---Follow Noah Trister at ' ' '
