#1 nes has strong ties to the Bomb von lebaobei123 07.03.2019 00:52

Englands fortunes have been transformed under coach Eddie Jones. Jefferson Lake looks at the Australians methods. The England squads training session on the final Thursday before the traditional autumn internationals was set for 32 minutes. Not half an hour. Not even 35 minutes, but 32.The word around Pennyhill Park, the luxurious Bagshot hotel which has been home to international training since 2003, is that such things are done to keep the players on their toes. They are, according to those around the squad, textbook Eddie Jones. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Whatever his methods or his reasons behind them, they are certainly working. Teams dont win nine successive games by accident, and the fact such a sequence has come after a dreadful World Cup at which the host nation was eliminated at the group stage makes it one all the more remarkable.So what has Jones done to turn a group of players which underachieved on a grand - and dire - scale to one about to bid for a perfect 10 against South Africa?A key difference regularly quoted is that the players are now more physical, that there has been an increase in intensity on the paddock which has been replicated in the Test match arena. Such intensity has also been increased by the added time the group has spent together, with the Bagshot practices being preceded by similar workouts in Brighton and Portugal.But those methods have not been without criticism, and never more so than when key players were injured as a result of them. Anthony Watson fractured his jaw during the south coast jaunt but there was worse news a day earlier when Wasps flanker Sam Jones broke his leg during a judo session. We profile Springboks lock Eben Eztebeth, hear from Tendai The Beast Mtawarira, and Jonny Wilkinson on the unique challenge of the Springboks The issue of physicality is front and centre as plans are made for the visit of South Africa to Twickenham, but it is one of which Jones is largely dismissive as an inherent ingredient of the sport.If you dont want it to be physical, you should play volleyball, is his assessment when the issue arises.I think its amusing when people talk about certain teams being more physical than others. You have to be physical - thats the game.That said, he does accept there is more of an abrasive edge to the Springboks than exists with other Test teams.A recent newspaper report stated that giant lock Eben Etzebeth can bench press 175kg - or to put it another way, the weight of an adult panda - and arm curl a 75kg dumbbell, which equates to 10kg less than the weight of George Ford. Jones is plotting Englands first victory over South Africa since 2006 The general rule there is that if youre a lock and youre not 66, youre shot and youre out the door, Jones told Sky Sports News HQ.They always pick the biggest blokes they can find and we know theyre going to do that, its something were fully aware of.But there are ways to get at South Africa and well be smart enough to work out how to get at them. Because of their overt physicality, I think they will give us opportunities in the game.With that in mind, Tom Wood has been selected at openside flanker after an international exile period of more than a year.The Northampton man was one of several who paid the price for the poor World Cup campaign but accepted Jones assertion that he was not producing good enough rugby to be considered for selection at that point. Tom Wood says hes determined to take the opportunity to impress His return to form and thus to the squad proves that Jones does not hold grudges, and his captain and club-mate Dylan Hartley was pleased to see him back in the fold.Hes been out in the wilderness, said Hartley, whose Movember moustache and close-cropped hair is not a patch on Woods full beard and flowing locks. And he looks like hes literally been living out in the wilderness.Hes a top bloke. He has worked hard and taken the feedback from Eddie on board. Its great to have him back.Woods first task on Saturday will be, in Jones own words, to make as big a mess as possible of South Africas first breakdown as England prepare themselves for a pack battle in the forecast Twickenham rain.They have not beaten the Springboks since 2006 - a barren run which spans 12 Test matches - but with a Grand Slam and that historic summer tour victory in Australia under their belts, England are well placed to end that sequence. We look at Jones perfect start to his England career Weve been together for a long time and weve been building towards this game for a long time, said Hartley. We prepare at Test-level intensity and we have worked hard for this game.Were excited. Weve been meeting up a lot recently and all of our talk has been about this game. I think the past week weve had has been one of our best weeks as a squad.Hartley, and Jones, will be hoping that practice-ground preparation translates to on-pitch precision as they bid for a perfect 10 wins in a row.Watch England v South Africa on Saturday.

Running Shoes Clearance Australia .C. -- Kevin Harvick won his first career pole at Darlington Raceway on Friday as he looks to chase his first Southern 500.WINNIPEG -- Wade Miller has pressed the firing button again. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced Wednesday the firing of head coach Tim Burke. Miller said the move was made Tuesday, after the "acting" tag was removed from his title of president and chief executive officer. When Miller was put in the acting role in August, his first move was axing general manager Joe Mack. Although Kyle Walters is the teams acting GM, Miller explained why he let Burke go rather than wait for a GM to decide his fate. "I believe that it was the right step for this organization," he said at Wednesdays press conference. "Typically, a new general manager is going to want to hire his own person, and I believe now that weve set that path for a new general manager to be able to make his own determination of who his head coach should be. "And also, that I didnt feel it was appropriate to have Tim waiting for the next three or four or five weeks in determining what his future was with the organization." Burke became Winnipegs interim head coach in August 2012 after Mack fired Paul LaPolice. He was given the job last November. The Bombers finished with a league-worst 3-15 record this season, tying the clubs lowest mark in an 18-game season. They were 7-21 under Burkes leadership. All the assistant coaches are on contracts that are up this year, Miller said, adding hes open to Burke staying with the team because hes got good character and has excelled as a defensive boss. Burke reportedly had a year left on his contract. "I think that wed be lucky as an organization to have Tim back as a defensive co-ordinator," Miller said. "I think that thats a decision that the new head coach and general manager will make, but that is definitely something that Tim and I discussed." Burke is receptive to that and wants to meet the new head coach, said Miller, wholl be involved in the interview process with the GM. "Ive really enjoyed my time in Winnipeg and am grateful for the opportunity this franchise gave me," Burke said in a press release. "The fan support in this city and province is just really remarkable and it is one of the greatest things I can take away from this experience in Winnipeg." Miller acknowledged Burke was in "an extremely tough spot when he took over." And it got worse this season. Mack kept often-injured Buck Pierce as the teams starting quarterback, and predictably Pierce was lost to injury early this season. His young backups didnt flourish, Mack was fired annd then Pierce was traded to B.ddddddddddddC. in September. Offensive co-ordinator and quarterbacks coach Gary Crowton was fired after Mack and replaced by former Hamilton head coach Marcel Bellefeuille, whod been added to the staff the week before as a consultant. Miller didnt view Winnipegs disastrous season as a negative to finding someone to replace Burke. "I think you get an opportunity to come make a mark for yourself," he said. "Its not going to happen overnight, but the head coach and general manager are going to need to have a direction and a plan to get us to be competitive every week." The Bombers will have some competition searching for a head coach as there are also vacancies in Edmonton and Ottawa, while Montreal GM Jim Popp took over as the Alouettes head coach when Dan Hawkins was fired earlier this season. Miller said the GM the team hires, which is two to four weeks in the offing, would have a list of candidates theyd want to pursue as a head coach. Some names that have surfaced include Calgary offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson, Saskatchewan quarterbacks coach Khari Jones, B.C. offensive co-ordinator Jacques Chapdelaine and Toronto defensive co-ordinator/assistant head coach Chris Jones. Dickenson is considered a desirable candidate, although its believed he doesnt want to break his family and professional ties in Calgary. Khari Jones has strong ties to the Bombers. The former quarterback is in the clubs hall of fame and he and Miller played together and are partners in Booster Juice franchises. "Im not going to talk about potential candidates," Miller said. "People that know me know that I care about being competitive and personal relationships wouldnt impact decisions that I make." If the Bombers are looking for someone with head coaching experience, a list might include former Bombers boss Doug Berry (Montreal) and Kavis Reed, who was recently fired by Edmonton and is a former Winnipeg defensive co-ordinator. The firing of LaPolice, now a TSN broadcaster, was also called a bad move by many Bomber fans. "If youve been a head coach before, is that a good thing or a bad thing, who knows?" Miller said. "So I think its important to find the right person, and (having) head coach experience is important, but not a deal-breaker, either." He did know what the right person will hopefully bring to the club. "Bring an attitude, bring leadership, bring a vision of where we need to go, along with the general manager," Miller said. ' ' '
