Margins of victory are often small in sport but Saturdays defeat to Australia was particularly tough on Scotland.Had Greig Laidlaw directed his second-half conversion a fraction to the left, or Stuart Hogg got to the rampaging Tevita Kuridrani half a yard quicker then a 10th Test win over the Wallabies would have been theirs.Following the match, Vern Cotter lamented that his side had not got the rub of the green at crucial moments, and Scotland were certainly penalised more readily than their visitors.But as the team and its supporters turn their attention towards the visit of Argentina next weekend, they will do so in optimistic mood. There was plenty on show at Murrayfield to suggest that Cotters final season in charge could yet prove to be a fruitful one.The quartet of players making their first international starts all acquitted themselves well, and in Huw Jones Scotland may just have unearthed a star in the making.Ahead of his first appearance at Murrayfield Jones had been required to serenade his teammates with a song. He picked R Kellys Ignition (Remix), and in terms of his impact on the game it proved a prophetic choice.Cheered on by my dad Bill, mum Hillary -- yes, really -- and sister Rhiannon, the Edinburgh-born, England-raised and South Africa-based centre personified Scotlands all-action approach as his two first-half tries helped secure a 17-10 half-time lead.Jones had also supplied a crucial interception and would be in the right place at the right time for his side again in the second half as he diverted Israel Folaus offload away from danger.It was little surprise when the 22-year-old was named man of the match. Its obviously unbelievable and a great feeling, he said of his debut.I thought that personally I had a fairly good game, but its a team game at the end of the day.Jones might not have enjoyed finishing on the losing side but his performance will have given the Murrayfield faithful reason to dream.His link-up play with fly-half Finn Russell for Scotlands first try, darting onto the playmakers chip ahead just before Wallabies fullback Folau could snuff out the danger, was particularly impressive.Watching at full speed it was easy to dismiss the move as an opportunistic kick-and-chase, but according to Jones that would be doing Scotland a disservice.We had that plan, he explained. Weve done that a couple of times this week [in training] and it worked every time.Whether it would do so again having been shown to the world is another matter, but it is encouraging for Scottish rugby that the players are coming up with these moves in the first place.During his reign as Scotland coach, Cotter has not been afraid to let the likes of Russell and Hogg trust their instincts. It was a feature of their performance against Australia too, as the Wallabies appeared shocked by how willing their hosts were to run the ball at them.Cotter is not short of midfield options, highlighted by the fact that Mark Bennett, Matt Scott and Duncan Taylor were not in Saturdays match day 23.Instead Jones lined up alongside Alex Dunbar, and with the help of the 17-cap Glasgow player he proved he belongs in such company. Its nice to have senior guys around you, guys who have played a few Tests, he said.They definitely do help you trough the game. Quite tough to hear them on the field at times, when the crowd starts roaring but they definitely help.Cotter said after the game that he believed Jones fed off the energy of his teammates, and it is also true that he would not have been able to showcase his talent without the platform set for him and his back line colleagues by Scotlands forwards.Wallabies captain Stephen Moore admitted his side had been given a bit of grief at the breakdown, an assertion borne out by their high number of turnovers conceded.Ryan Wilsons early injury forced Cotters hand, but the back row of John Barclay, Hamish Watson and John Hardie worked tirelessly.Barclay in particular appeared to be a one-man wrecking ball, with one steal leading to a complaint from Michael Hooper to referee John Lacey.The inference was that foul play must have played a part, but Lacey let Hooper know that Barclay had done nothing the Wallabies own No. 6 David Pocock hadnt been doing. High praise indeed.In the end it wasnt enough to stop a record crowd for this fixture trudging back into Edinburgh in disappointment. But they had been given reason to hope that an even better performance might ignite against the Pumas next Saturday.Its obviously another big one, Jones said of Argentina. Theyre a physical team, a good team, so more of the same. We need to be better. Nike Air Force Ones Sale .

Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Kyra Holt found her voice on the volleyball court as a senior playing for Washington State.Last weekend, she lost it, but not before leading her Cougars (12-2) to victories over two top-10 opponents in a three-day span.Washington State debuted in the American Volleyball Coaches Association poll at No. 17 on Monday, following wins over previously unbeaten Washington and UCLA. It was the Cougars first win in Seattle since 2001 and first in Los Angeles since 1997.Credit Holt, the espnW volleyball player of the week, for amassing 39 kills and 21 digs in the two matches. Those numbers make her the fifth player in Cougars history to reach 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in a career.Hoarse after Fridays win at the Huskies gym, where a hearty contingent of Cougar fans turned out despite a five-hour trek, Holt said, Its just awesome. I have no words.Coach Jen Greeny touts Holt, an outside hitter, as an all-around threat who keeps opponents off-balance with her versatility.Teams focus on her offense, but shes a solid passer, a great server, and defensively, she does great things as well, Greeny said.Greeny said Holts leadership has been key in making the Cougars a factor in the Pac-12.Shell call her own timeouts and try to get her teammates to focus in practice, Greeny said. Shes also coachable in that you can get on her, and shell take that feedback and make changes.Holt was AVCA Pacific North Region Freshman of the Year in 2013 and All-Pac-12 first team last season. For the past two years, she has been a tri-captain for the Cougars.We have a lot of underclassmen, and were finally figuring out how to play, said Holt, a mentor to the teams middle hitters in particular. Ive been letting them know its OK to make a mistake, as long as youre trying your best.In addition to Holts weekend numbers, sophomore Claire Martin had 15 block assists and freshman Alexis Dirige had 43 digs in the two matches. Martin is the reigniing Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week.dddddddddddd Holt picked up the conferences offensive honors.We didnt have a lot of middle threats last year, Holt said. It makes my job a lot easier. I dont have to kill the ball every single time. I do get a lot of attacks, which I love, but having a middle attack like ours makes opponents respect our middle.Washington States victory over UCLA was especially significant because the Cougars had dropped 11 straight five-set matches, including one to Baylor on Sept. 17.Last year, we went to five sets with UCLA and Arizona State, and those were just heartbreakers, Holt said. I knew going into the fifth we were not going to lose because Im so sick of losing them.Holt didnt start playing volleyball until she joined her best friend for tryouts in eighth grade. The longtime basketball player, whose father starred at UC Riverside before turning professional in Malta, planned to compete in both sports at Albany High near her hometown, Hercules, California. When she fainted in basketball practice as a freshman, Holt changed her mind.I had been dribbling since I learned how to walk and wanted to be like my dad, she said. I wasnt eating properly and decided I didnt want to do both.The human development major, who plans to become a high school teacher, is excited the Cougars are in the mix in a Pac-12 that boasts eight teams in the top 25. Washington at No. 7, Stanford at No. 9 and UCLA at No. 12 remain ranked ahead of Washington State.We definitely fly under the radar, Holt said. When we have won, well hear its because the other team played bad, and thats been frustrating.Stanford, the nations top blocking team, is next on the schedule, on Friday. Holt, well, lets just say shes excited.I want to play them tonight, she said Sunday. Were ready.
