KINGSTON, Ont. -- Canada remained unbeaten in its Pacific Nations Cup rugby debut after holding off a 14-man Tonga 36-27 in rainy Kingston on Saturday. Four days after a first-ever win over Fiji, a Canada team with 10 changes was helped when Tonga prop Eddie Aholelei was sent off for fighting in the 34th minute. Two more Tongans were sin-binned for shoulder charges. Tonga coach Mana Otai said Pacific Island teams were being unfairly penalized for their physical play. "I couldnt really see why (the yellow cards were issued)," Otai said after reviewing tape of the incidents. "Its almost like, these days you know, when a black man is tackling harder than the other, it seems to be the way." Asked if Pacific Island teams were being singled out, he said: "Absolutely. Its a perception a lot of times. "And I think some of the foreigners that are involved in our team now are starting to see that. Its just hard to battle or fight that stereotype, I guess. But Im not taking away the fact that at times we do, I guess, make mistakes in terms of tackling -- if Im talking in general. But in todays game, I couldnt justify the two yellow cards." Canada coach Kieran Crowley declined to debate the merits of the Tongan incidents. "It was a physical game," the former All Black said. "Weve got a few boys walking around pretty wounded in there and weve got to keep an eye on a couple of them, I think." Canada finished the half only 9-7 ahead, but scored three of the next four tries to be 33-10. Tonga stormed back with three tries but could convert only one in closing within six of Canada. James Pritchard finished the match with his fourth penalty, to go along with conversions to all three Canada tries, including his own. "My heart stopped a couple of times there," said Canada captain Aaron Carpenter, who celebrated his 50th cap. Canada can clinch the Pacific Nations Cup with a win in Japan on June 19. Thats four days after the team plays Ireland in Toronto. ------ Canada 36 (Matt Evans, Sean Duke, James Pritchard tries; Pritchard 3 conversions, 4 penalties, Ciaran Hearn penalty), Tonga 27 (Lua Lokotui, Viliami Iongi, Fetuu Vainikolo, Will Helu tries; Kurt Morath conversion, penalty, Paula Kaho conversion).

Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online . PETERSBURG, Fla.Heurelho Gomes chose to highlight his teams performance rather than his own after his double penalty save all-but secured Watfords status in the Premier League. The Hornets claimed a vital 1-0 victory, thanks to Ben Watsons first-half strike, to move beyond the 40-point mark in the league.The result, however, owed much to Gomes contribution as he single-handedly thwarted two Saido Berahino penalties in the second half. Gomes became the first goalkeeper in Premier League history to save two penalties in two separate games, having denied Sunderland striker Darren Bent twice from the spot while playing for Tottenham in 2010.It was a great feeling, we needed this, Gomes told Sky Sports. It was a huge win, we knew before that Sunderland were winning. Watfords Heurelho Gomes is congratulated by team-mates after saving a second Saido Berahino penalty Asked to describe his saves, Gomes added: I needed to wait for the ball, the first one I moved to my left to give him possibility to kick to my right.The second one I just waited for him to decide and I pushed as hard as I could and I saved it. Now we need to keep going. We need to be prepared to go back to work and work hard as I always tried to do.The victory moved Quique Sanchez Flores side above West Brom in the Premier League and virtually ensured top-flight football for another season at Vicarage Road. Tony Pulis says he cant believe West Brom lost 1-0 at home to Watford It means this current Watford side are on course to become the first to avoid relegation to the Championship the season following promotion.ddddddddddddAnd Gomes was quick to highlight the collective effort from everyone associated with Watford after a successful season.The boys deserve everything too, they work so hard and this is a very difficult place to come, he said. We knew that before the game we had to be very strong to defend our advantage. Watfords Ben Watson celebrates scoring the opening goal against West Brom The boys, the club and the fans deserve credit (for reaching the 40-point mark). The fans push us all the way from last season until now.This club has a massive possibility to grow in the Premier League and stay up, its not mathematically yet but we have a huge possibility to stay up and build a stronger squad for next season.Our focus is always on our game and its been like that from the beginning of the season. We have never been in a dangerous situation and we deserve the place we have now.
