turday, the Stormers centre proved that he belongs in the Test arena with a barnstorming performance that produced two tries and Antworten

England roll on unbeaten, Scotland were undone by Australia late on again and Wales finally won. ESPN reporters?have their say on the biggest storylines for each team coming out of the second week of the autumn internationals...Argentina Pumas need to pounce from get goAfter they put 54 points on Japan a week ago the Pumas were purring heading into Cardiff, but they struggled to find that same mojo against an improved Wales.Just a penalty to show in the first half highlighted a lack of penetration in attack, while their much vaunted set-piece wasnt getting the go forward against a solid Welsh pack. It wasnt until Wales scored in the second half that Argentina upped the ante, both of their tries came just minutes after the home side crossed.In Martin Landajo, Nicolas Sanchez and Juan Martin Hernandez they have some lively playmakers, its just a matter of them delivering their high tempo style for the full 80 minutes against northern hemisphere sides more comfortable playing at a slower pace. This weekends Test against Scotland should be a cracker. -- Nick BewleyWeek 3 vs. Scotland, Murrayfield, Nov. 19, 5:00 p.m. GMTAustralia Wallabies have plenty to ponder as they plot Frances downfallMichael Cheika will want to concentrate on the positives this week, after his side emerged with a dramatic victory over Scotland at Murrayfield. The Wallabies were disjointed for 40 minutes in Edinburgh, leading one player to urge his side to put some spring in it three-quarters of the way through the opening 40 minutes.Australia continue to look dangerous with ball in hand, and Bernard Foley was again instrumental in the two tries that were scored. However, there would have been plenty to concern Cheika when the men in gold were not in possession. Tackles were missed, turnovers conceded and, perhaps most worryingly of all, Stephen Moores lineout throwing unravelled when put under pressure.Moore commended Scotlands play at the breakdown in the aftermath, and they were indeed impressive over the ball. But it should not go unnoticed that it was not Vern Cotters first-choice back-row. Australias Grand Slam push is alive, but there is plenty to work on before Paris. -- Martyn ThomasWeek 3 vs. France, Stade de France, Nov. 19, 8:00 p.m. GMTEngland Wood looks at home as he plugs back row holeWorryingly for Fiji, Argentina and Australia, England are playing with a confidence not seen since the Sir Clive Woodward era. Against South Africa they werent at their best but still managed to record a comfortable win and all this without Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Jack Nowell, Anthony Watson and James Haskell.One of the major plusses to come out of the win was the performance of Tom Wood at openside. Last week we posed whether England will ever find an answer to their openside conundrum but Wood filled the void left by the injured Haskell and looked right at home in the Jones setup. The performance of Nathan Hughes off the bench offered another option in the back-row but for now, England are looking on course to end the year unbeaten. -- Tom HamiltonWeek 3 vs. Fiji, Twickenham, Nov. 19, 2:30 p.m. GMTIreland Ireland preparing for a Dublin double? Wallabies great David Campese tweeted that Irelands match against Canada shouldnt be called a Test after Joe Schmidt changed the entire XV that started in the historic triumph over the All Blacks a week earlier. And there wasnt a huge amount to take from Irelands 52-21 win.Sean OBrien made his international return after he missed out on selection for the Chicago Test. The openside flanker put in a solid shift, and could keep his place in the seven jersey for the New Zealand re-match in Dublin especially with Jordi Murphy sidelined for the coming months. That would set up quite a clash at the breakdown with All Blacks ball-pilferer Sam Cane.The key for Schmidt and co. this week will be their game plan. It was a tactical masterstroke in Chicago that stunned New Zealand, but now the element of surprise is gone. Whatever they do Ireland must take the game to the All Blacks, as any side that has sat back against Steve Hansens men this year has been severely punished. -- NBWeek 3 vs. New Zealand, Aviva Stadium, Nov. 19, 5:30 p.m. GMTItalyAzzurri must put boot into BoksThe Test against New Zealand was only ever going to have one winner but the Azzurri did themselves no favours in the nature of the defeat.A week earlier Ireland revealed a blueprint of how to defeat the All Blacks through ambitious attacking play, giving New Zealands back three zero chance to counter while disrupting their under-strength forward pack at the set-piece. Italy did none of these things. When they had the ball they kicked aimlessly and hoped New Zealand, the two-time defending world champions, wouldnt return with any interest. Bad move.Given Italys coach Conor OShea is Irish, their tactics were even more baffling. Hopefully we will see more flair and passion in their performance this weekend against a South African side who are struggling for confidence. -- NBWeek 3 vs. South Africa, Stadio Artemio Franchi, Nov. 19, 2:00 p.m. GMTNew Zealand Questions remain after Italian jobIt was expected that the All Blacks would thump a hapless Italy side, but you still have to do it.The All Blacks trotted out a B side at Stadio Olimpico and still managed to run in 10 tries such is their depth. Inside centre Anton Lienert-Brown was a stand-out with two world-class touches that led to tries and must start in the re-match against Ireland after he missed the stunning defeat in Chicago.Another encouraging sign for coach Steve Hansen was that second-row Brodie Retallick got valuable minutes off the bench in his return from concussion. The towering lock should return to the starting fold this week in Dublin, while fellow incumbent Sam Whitelock isnt far off overcoming an ankle injury.The All Blacks selectors have two selection conundrums to deal with this week in the backline. TJ Perenara appears to have the edge over Aaron Smith for the starting scrum-half role, while Israel Daggs all-round game could see him return on the right wing in the space of Waisake Naholo. -- NBWeek 3 vs. Ireland, Aviva Stadium, Nov. 19, 5:30 p.m. GMTScotlandScotland must give their wandering centre a homeWhen Huw Jones stepped off the Millfield production line in 2012 his hopes of playing international rugby looked bleak. The Somerset school has a tradition of developing Test-level players -- dating back to the days of Sir Gareth Edwards -- but while the likes of Mako Vunipola and Jonathan Joseph had been fast-tracked into age-grade sides, England considered Jones too small. Instead, the Edinburgh-born back embarked on a gap year in South Africa that quite literally changed his life.And on his first Murrayfield start for Scotland on Saturday, the Stormers centre proved that he belongs in the Test arena with a barnstorming performance that produced two tries and as many timely interceptions. His desire to play for the country of his birth -- even if his English is now accented with a Cape Town lilt -- is obvious. The Scottish Rugby Union must do everything they can to maximise his talent and bring him back from South Africa.Jones has one more year to run on his deal with the Stormers but after that appears open to a new adventure. Scotland fans will hope their wandering centre finally comes home. -- MTWeek 3 vs. Argentina, Murrayfield, Nov. 19 5:00 p.m. GMTSouth Africa South Africa fans have cause for real concernUnderstandably, the South African social media cognoscenti were furious with the Springboks performance at Twickenham. The team looked confused, off the pace and generally poor.They were not the South Africa the rugby world has come to admire and fear. Allister Coetzee dismissed any notion post-match that they have lost their aura, or fear-factor but will Italy really be worried about facing this outfit next weekend? Its unlikely.Its a frustrating experience watching them. They have the talent -- there is no doubt over that -- but its just a case of getting a game plan to suit the players. And for that, its the coaches who have to bring this team out of their slump. -- THWeek 3 vs. Italy, Stadio Artemio Franchi, Nov. 19 2:00 p.m. GMTWales Alun Wyn Jones shows courage to help give Wales some cheerThis was a huge result for Wales which should restore some confidence in their playing group, interim coach Rob Howley and their enduring fans who hadnt seen their side win a Test match in their last five attempts.The influence of experienced second-row Alun Wyn Jones cant be understated. A week on from the death of his father, the Ospreys veteran led from the front and put his body on the line, and thoroughly deserved his man of the match award.Jones was one of four players who missed the 32-8 loss to the Wallabies who made a profound impact in the Pumas win. Sam Warburton and Jonathan Davies showed just how valuable they are to this Welsh side in their returns from injury, while Liam Williams provided just the spark in the backline that Wales were lacking.Where Jamie Roberts fits in from here will be a talking point this week, with a date with Japan looming. -- NBWeeks 3 vs. Japan, Principality Stadium, Nov. 19, 2:30 p.m. GMT Logan Ryan 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. Rashaan Evans Jersey . Here are his mid-season NBA awards. MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. . The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling "puts an end to my dreams of being a top player," the 27-year-old Troicki said in a statement. "I worked my entire life for it, and it has been taken away from me in one afternoon by a doctor I didnt know," said Troicki, whose ranking peaked at No. Anthony Firkser Jersey . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. Kamalei Correa Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State knew it had one of the nations best players in Monte Morris. But the Cyclones also knew that the healthy return of fellow senior guard Naz Mitrou-Long would be just as crucial to their hopes in 2016-17.Morris and Mitrou-Long looked as strong as ever in the opener. Morris had his seventh career double-double with 21 points and 11 assists and 24th-ranked Iowa State routed Savannah State 113-71 on Friday night.Mitrou-Long had 18 points with 10 rebounds and seven assists in his debut following a medical redshirt season for the Cyclones, who won their opener for the 19th year in a row.Monte is a really unselfish player...but Naz is the heartbeat of our team. He needs to do a lot of the intangible things for us as well as score, coach Steve Prohm said.As expected, Iowa State was met with little resistance from the Tigers. The Cyclones jumped ahead 59-38 at the half -- with 16 assists on 24 field goals -- and cracked 100 points for the third time under Prohm.Matt Thomas scored 14 points and Merill Holden added 12 in his Iowa State debut.Joshua Young had 12 points to lead Savannah State. Iowa State outrebounded the Tigers 62-36.BIG PICTUREIowa State: Iowa States rotation -- a question mark after Georges Niang, Abdel Nader and Jameel McKay graduated -- was revealed early. Nine different guys played in the first eight minutes, something happened just once in 2015-15. Transfers Nick Weiler-Babb and Donovan Jackson were the main backcourt reserves, and Darrell Bowie and freshman Solomon Jackson provided frontcourt relief.Savannah State: The Tigers, picked to finish 11th in their conference, picked up a paycheck thats vitall to the survival of low-major programs like themselves.dddddddddddd It likely wont be until early in the MEAC season to know whether Savannah has enough talent to outperform its expectations.POLL IMPLICATIONSIowa State blew out a team it was supposed to blow out, so its hard to imagine itll move much. But No. 18 UConns upset defeat should lift everyone below them up at least a spot.MARVELOUS MONTEMorris, who might have left for the NBA had he not injured his shoulder late last season, sealed his double-double with 17 minutes left in the second half. The Big 12 preseason player of the year finished 9 of 11 from the floor and added three steals. The pressure is just coming to work every day and just showing the guys the way, Morris said.NOT SO YOUNG AFTER ALLOne of the things Iowa State has lacked in recent years is an impact big man with the physicality to hang in the paint in the bruising Big 12. Young, at 6-foot-8 and 240 pounds, looked the part in the opener. He finished with 11 points and five rebounds in just 14 points, though he also fouled out.HE SAID ITI didnt know I had seven assists. I thought Monte had 30, Mitrou-Long said about being pulled before getting a chance to finish off a triple-double. Mitrou-Long took a medical redshirt after eight games last season because his surgically repaired hips werent fully healed.UP NEXTIowa State hosts Mount St. Marys on Monday.Savannah State stays in Iowa to play the cross-state Hawkeyes on Sunday.---More AP college basketball: Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
