Mendeika set to cover for Grix

first_img “We were a little bit rusty,” he said. “We hadn’t had a lot of time but I’ve got to say the commitment, the attitude and the togetherness was there. What we’ve got to be is a little more clinical. “We got a lot of belief out of that game. We only had 10 days together, we only had 10 sessions together. We will get better.” Ireland 19-man squad: D Allen (Widnes), L Ambler (Halifax), B Beswick (Leigh), D Blanch (Catalan Dragons), D Bridge (Warrington), B Currie (Warrington), L Finn (Featherstone, capt), S Finnigan (Leigh), K Haggerty (Barrow), J Hasson (Manly), R Kostjasyn (North Queensland), S Littler (Leigh), T McCarthy (Warrington), J Mendeika (Warrington), A Mullally (Huddersfield), A Pewhairangi (Parramatta), P Richards (Wigan), J Toole (St George Illawarra), B White (Canberra). “It’s disappointing that Scott is not quite ready because we wanted our best team out there but what it does do is offer an opportunity to James Mendeika and, with the energy and enthusiasm and the skills he’s got, I’m sure he will fit in very well,” said Aston on Thursday afternoon at the team’s training base at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. Ireland are also without Widnes prop Eamon O’Carroll, who picked up a shoulder injury in the defeat by the Fijiians, but Aston expects to have former Huddersfield second rower Simon Finnigan back after he sat out the opening game with a hamstring problem. Aston is set to switch Warrington second rower Ben Currie to stand-off in the forced re-shuffle and amend his tactics accordingly. Salford stand-off Marc Sneyd would have been the obvious choice for the number six jersey but he was ruled ineligible after failing to complete the paperwork in time, leaving Aston with a 23-man squad to work with. “We might go with a different tact within the game structure,” Aston said. “Ben has played there before – he’s played for England against Australia at junior level at stand-off – so he’s accustomed to that And he can play. “He might be more of a running six than a ball-playing six but that’s what we want. We want people who are going to hit the line hard against a very good team.” Utility back Josh Toole and forwards Luke Ambler and Danny Bridge are the other players added to the team that was swept aside by the aggressive Fijiians. Ireland were one of only three teams not to play a warm-up match and Aston is confident they will improve in their remaining group games against England and Australia. Press Association Rookie James Mendeika will deputise for Scott Grix at full-back for Ireland in Saturday’s World Cup group A clash with England at Huddersfield. The 21-year-old was at stand-off in Ireland’s opening 32-14 defeat by Fiji in Rochdale on Monday but switched to full-back when Huddersfield’s Grix went off towards the end with a thigh injury. The experienced Grix has failed to shake off the injury so misses out on playing for his country on his home ground and coach Mark Aston is turning to the Warrington youngster, whose only Super League experience came in 2013 during a loan spell with London Broncos. last_img read more

Berbatov on form as Cottagers win

first_imgDimitar Berbatov brushed off talk of a January exit to end Fulham’s six-game Barclays Premier League losing streak as the Cottagers saw off Aston Villa 2-0. Should Berbatov sustain the form shown in the first half here, new boss Meulensteen’s chances of dragging Fulham clear of relegation danger will increase dramatically. Berbatov’s astute pass sent Alexander Kacinklic haring clear, and he lured Leandro Bacuna into a robust challenge that brought the penalty. It was a shocking mistake from the Villa full-back that condemned Paul Lambert’s men to a miserable 2-0 half-time deficit. The Midlanders were never able to find their stride, eventually suffering their first defeat in six league matches. Before this clash Lambert’s men held the second-best run of Premier League form behind Everton. Now they are left to rue the continued indifferent form of striker Christian Benteke, whose barren run stretched to nine games. Fulham recorded their first clean sheet since the 1-0 Stoke victory on October 5, holding out under what precious second-half pressure Villa could muster. Wherever Berbatov ends up by February, he proved his short-term Fulham commitment at least in an engaging first half. Both focal point and defence opener, this was the former Manchester United striker at his best. Just eight minutes in he nodded in a smart header that Brad Guzan had to touch on to the bar. Berbatov had fallen as though pole-axed moments earlier, rightly unsuccessful in a penalty shout. Even before that Giorgios Karagounis’ chipped pass was cut out, and Scott Parker’s through-ball nearly set John Arne Riise clear. Fulham had Villa pegged back into their own half for the opening 10 minutes, but Lambert’s men were always going to be dangerous on the break. Villa cut clear almost on cue, only for off-colour striker Benteke to head a fine chance wide. The Belgium forward hit the target after 20 minutes with a rasping shot from the edge of the box, but it was straight at Maarten Stekelenburg and the Fulham stopper parried with ease. That spurred the home side back into action, with Ashkan Dejagah racing clear, but unable to pull the trigger. Kaciniklic’s resulting effort was cleared off the line as Fulham cranked up the pressure. And then Meulensteen’s men struck. Berbatov’s cushioned header allowed Dejagah to send the onrushing Sidwell into the box, and the recalled midfielder clipped into the net at full stretch. If Villa were stunned by their inability to gain a foothold, manager Lambert would have been furious with Bacuna for conceding a soft penalty just before the half-hour mark. Berbatov sent Kaciniklic clear with a superb ball, but Fulham’s number 11 ran slightly too wide for a clear shot at goal. Well aware of his error, Kaciniklic delayed long enough for Bacuna to race in, and bundle him to the turf. Referee Mike Dean awarded the spot kick, and Berbatov delivered with a calm side-foot finish. Agbonlahor wasted a fine opening for Villa right at the start of the second half, letting a neat square ball stray across his path when he should have struck it first time. Philippe Senderos struck a firm header goalwards after a well-worked Fulham corner, but Guzan was equal to the effort. Riise was forced to nod round the far post in defence after an Agbonlahor cross, but it was slim pickings for Villa. Norway full-back Riise then headed against the post from a smart Karagounis cross. Back in the ascendancy, Fulham sought a third to kill off the contest. But Sidwell was unable to put even a toe to Dejagah’s low right-wing cross. Villa never found fluency in this tie, Karim El Ahmadi and Andreas Weimann’s near-collision in the Fulham box summing up a galling day. Fulham will simply not care though, buoyed hugely by three crucial points and lift-off for the Meulensteen era. Press Association Berbatov laid on Fulham’s first, Steve Sidwell’s third league goal of the campaign – before coolly side-footing a penalty he helped secure. The spot-kick finish was just Berbatov’s second league goal in 13 appearances this term, and it secured Rene Meulensteen’s first win in sole charge. last_img read more

Huth fined for Twitter comments

first_img Press Association Stoke defender Robert Huth has been given a two-match suspension and fined after he admitted breaching FA rules in relation to social media comments, the Football Association has announced. An FA statement said: “Robert Huth will serve a two-match suspension with immediate effect after he admitted breaching FA Rules in relation to comments he made on social media. “The Stoke City defender was charged in relation to comments which were indecent and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute, contrary to FA Rule E3(1). “Further to this, it was considered an “Aggravated Breach” as defined in Rule E3(2), as it included a reference to gender and/or gender reassignment.” Huth had apologised for interacting with a Twitter account which invited users of the social media site to guess from cropped photographs of people in explicit poses whether those pictured have male or female genitalia. A series of tweets posted from Huth’s official account showed the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough player taking part and making indecent remarks. He deleted the tweets and posted a message saying: “Clearly no offence was meant or directed to anyone, but apologies if I’ve offended anyone.” He was charged by the FA on January 14. In October the FA handed Rio Ferdinand a three-match suspension, as well as a £25,000 fine, for comments he made on Twitter, though that was not the QPR defender’s first offence on social media. Huth’s ban could complicate efforts by Potters boss Mark Hughes to send the German out on loan before the transfer window closes on Monday. Huth, a Potters player for more than five years, has made only one Barclays Premier League appearance since suffering a knee injury in November 2013. Speaking on Thursday at his press conference to preview Saturday’s trip to Leicester, Hughes said: “I’ve had discussions with Robert and I think it is fair to say he needs games. “We are looking to try to get him that if we can. “It needs to be at the right club, and needs to be the right opportunity for Robert himself. “We want to get games into him so he is fit and ready for us.” Huth had responded to a Twitter account which posts sexual images of individuals and asks users to guess their gender, and was found to be in breach of FA rules relating to comments which are indecent, improper, or bring the game into disrepute. In addition to the two-match ban, Huth was fined £15,000 and ordered to complete a mandatory education course. last_img read more

Healthy Carimi key to making title dreams a reality

first_imgIt doesn’t take too long to figure out the key stretch in Wisconsin’s 2010 schedule.Week seven marks a showdown with the Buckeyes in Madison, and a week later the Badgers travel to Iowa City for a matchup the Hawkeyes.Everyone knows those two weeks will go a long way in defining this year’s team.Trouble is, the Badgers have struggled to beat ranked conference opponents in recent years. UW has a combined 1-5 record against OSU and Iowa in the last three seasons.Last year, the Badgers had a similar schedule, with Ohio State and Iowa featured in back-to-back weeks, and both games ended with hopeful Badger fans hanging their heads.A major reason for those two losses? UW’s inability to handle the opposing defensive lines.But that’s not something to be ashamed of, considering OSU and Iowa possess two stout units, featuring two of the best ends in the nation. Star senior Cameron Heyward anchors Ohio State’s line, while the relentless Adrian Clayborn leads the way for Iowa and both Heyward and Clayborn have been tabbed pre-season All-Americans by major publications.For any offense lining up against those two D-linemen to have success, the play of its left tackle (the man lined up across Clayborn and Heyward) is critical.Fortunately for UW, they possess one of the best in the country — senior captain Gabe Carimi. The Cottage Grove-native is one of the few linemen in college football with the ability to handle such forces off the edge. Possessing such a rare talent at left tackle gives UW a legitimate chance to upend the Big Ten’s top teams.In his final collegiate season, a year where UW has the talent and depth to contend for the conference crown, Carimi’s play against the Big Ten’s best defensive ends will be a determining factor in UW’s title chances.“This league is loaded with defensive ends,” senior quarterback Scott Tolzien said. “But it’s really comforting knowing we have Gabe, a guy we all trust, to get the job done.”Standing at 6-foot-7 and weighing over 320 pounds, Carimi is a pre-season all-conference selection and he’s caught the eye of NFL scouts who project him as a first-round pick.Carimi has flashed NFL potential throughout his years at UW, and he’s always been loaded with talent, but injuries and inconsistency have halted his play from reaching a truly dominant level. That dominant performance fans had been waiting for appeared in the Champs Sports Bowl, however, where Carimi paved the way for a 121-yard performance from John Clay and gave Tolzien the time he needed to carve up a skilled Miami defense.And the most impressive part about Carimi’s performance was the fact that he played despite limping off the field at one point with a gruesome knee injury.“My kneecap got dislocated, and when it came back into place there was some loose flaps of cartilage,” Carimi said. “It was painful, but it felt stable enough and I felt I needed to be out there with my team.”Initially, it looked like UW’s left tackle was going to watch the bowl game unfold from the sidelines.Instead, he sat out one series.“It sent a message to all of us. He gets injured and hops right back in there,” Tolzien said. “That right there is what this program is built on.”That was one of many difficult injuries Carimi played through last season. In games against Ohio State and Iowa, Carimi’s health caught up with him, and Heyward and Clayborn took advantage, constantly pressuring the UW backfield. The talented tackle was unable to compete at his highest level.In fact, a shoulder sprain suffered against OSU made him one-handed.“I sustained the shoulder injury at Ohio State, and I was gone from practice the whole next week. I was just running by people on blocks,” Carimi said. “Then the next week was Iowa where I reinjured it on the first play.“I couldn’t punch out with my left arm at all and it took two months after the season for me to start sleeping right on my bed.”Yet despite all the frustrating, debilitating injuries, in the final game of the season Carimi fought through the pain and delivered a heroic effort, as the Badgers earned their most impressive win in Orlando.Now, to reach the higher goals this team has set for the season, the Badgers must build off that Champs Sports Bowl victory, take care of business in conference play and get Carimi to consistently live up to his potential.Clayborn and the OSU line got the best of him and the Badgers last season, and the senior tackle remembers it well. But this is a new year, a year where Carimi is finally at 100 percent. Heading into 2010, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone more anxious for another shot at the Big Ten’s toughest teams, where he’ll go head-to-head against the nation’s top defensive ends.“Last year I was just trying to get by with my injuries, but this year I plan on excelling in those big games,” Carimi said.For the Badgers to take down Ohio State and Iowa and win the conference, that’s exactly what they’ll need.Max is a senior majoring in journalism.

Rochel back at it for women’s basketball

first_imgAt this time last year Cassie Rochel wasn’t sure if she’d be able to play the game she loved again.The Wisconsin basketball fifth-year senior was in serious pain, at times not able to walk or sit in class, with an inexplicable lower back injury doctors and trainers couldn’t even fully diagnose.“In my mind, I never wanted to redshirt. I thought I’d miss, tops, a couple of games,” Rochel said. “But 10 games in I decided to redshirt.”The coaching staff and the NCAA granted a medical redshirt to Rochel, who said the decision became easier after seeing the success of Taylor Wurtz, a fifth-year senior last season, who had sat out the previous season with a back injury as well.“She was someone who was always there for me when I was out,” Rochel said of Wurtz.However, Wurtz’s injury was operable. Rochel’s bulging lower-disk was not — doctors deemed it too risky. Plus, nobody in their low 20s was having that type of surgery. Instead, she had to deal with injections that only temporarily eased the pain.So the pain lingered, well into the beginning of off-season conditioning, causing Rochel to not be on par with her desired fitness levels.“I gained weight after sitting out,” Rochel said. “I couldn’t do any running in the preseason so it took me longer than the rest of the team to get back into shape.”The 6-foot-4 center has had to change her style of play because of the injury. Her traditional post-up, back-to-the-basket technique is rarely seen anymore due to fear of receiving a defender’s arm bar to the back.“I’m conscious of things that could reaggravate the injury,” Rochel said. “I look to get my points on the move now.”Rochel added that while she is more agile and quicker on her feet, she lost her shot-block timing. Shot-blocking is the area in which Rochel prides herself on, averaging 1.49 blocks per game, which ranks third all-time for UW. Her 142 career blocks is also third all-time. In her junior season, she led the Big Ten in blocks per game (2.67), a mark that was 14th in the entire nation.“Stefanie Arndt, our new trainer, did a great job of coming in after the injury and getting her back on the court,” head coach Bobbie Kelsey said.Whatever rust Rochel had is wearing off, and whatever pain she’s playing with hasn’t inhibited her in the big moment. Against Penn State Jan. 6, she tied her career-high with seven blocks in one game, which also tied the Kohl Center record, a mark she had previously set. In a matchup at Florida, Rochel scored 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a 51-48 win, while scoring off an offensive rebound with five seconds remaining.Rochel feels that in the time since her injury, her biggest improvements weren’t physical; rather, it was her mentality.“A little over a year ago I was in the worst spot,” Rochel said of her outlook during the injury. “I was really down. I was supposed to be out there leading. I was on the bench and not standing up a lot during practice.”“Mentally, I’ve come a long way.”She attributes her positivity to her teammates and coaches, but especially her mother.“My mom really brought me back,” Rochel said. “There are so many other situations I am thankful to not be in. I’m thankful because of the opportunity to be in basketball.”The time spent on the bench allowed Rochel to learn the game from a different angle. Aside from her newfound knowledge of the x’s and o’s, she developed a new appreciation for the game.“It was nice to be a spectator and sit and watch games. You realize things you don’t see [on the court],” Rochel said. “But I’m very blessed and thankful. I developed a newfound love of the game, because you miss it and you want it.”Sometimes the pain and discomfort comes back. When Kelsey has the team huddled for an extended period of time during practice, Rochel will have to walk away and stretch to keep her back from stiffening up.“Rehab and rest and managing my minutes is really important,” Rochel said. “The coaches are really smart with that, and as much as it sucks to not play during practice sometimes, you have to play for the games.”As the season has progressed, Kelsey no longer emphasizes managing Rochel’s game minutes.“Now it’s up to her to manage when she’s tightening up to step out of the drills,” Kelsey said. “She does a good job of that.”Now, one year removed from cringing pain and the uncertainty of her basketball career, the Lakeville, Minnesota, native has a clear vision for her future. It’s a vision that includes playing more basketball, most likely overseas, hopefully pain-free.“It speaks volumes for her, her competitiveness, her desire and her passion for the game,” Kelsey said when asked about Rochel’s comeback. “I don’t even know what to say about it, for her to be playing as much as she is, and a year ago she could hardly walk.“Credit the trainer. God and the trainer.”For someone who tries not to take things seriously (she describes herself as “goofy”) Rochel wants to leave a legacy of someone who defended the basket and a leader.Defending with her back to the basket, Cassie Rochel is back at it.last_img read more

LeBron James speaks out on Breonna Taylor and his frustrations with racial equity in America

first_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers That activism is ongoing. On Friday, More Than A Vote announced an initiative to raise $100,000 for the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which will go toward paying the outstanding fines and fees of people convicted of felonies which are preventing them from voting. In 2018, Florida passed an amendment in its general election to allow people with felony convictions the right to vote, and MTAV has targeted aid to help affected people exercise that right. James’ Miami Heat teammate Udonis Haslem has been one of the regional leaders for MTAV on the issue.As teammate Anthony Davis said Thursday night: “When he speaks the whole world listens.”But James has also been troubled by many developments since then, including the election of Donald Trump who he has feuded with in the past. While Pew polls last month showed some two-thirds of American adults support Black Lives Matter and discourse on race in America has increased since the death of George Floyd, James seemed to question the notion that true progress has been made, citing profiling incidents he continues to see on video.“I mean, 2016 Barack (Obama) was our president. We know what’s going on now,” he said. “So is that that progress? I don’t think, I think we all can see and say that’s not progress, the conversation that’s being had right now, and how many people are really listening, or are just having conversations trying to make things happen? I think that’s progress, but we got a long way to go.”The Lakers have identified James as one of the most grounded leaders in their group as tension began to build last month and protests spread. Frank Vogel said on Zoom calls, James was one of the loudest voices in rallying teammates to action.Vogel himself said he’s learned a lot in the past two months from his colleagues and players.“I want to personally recognize that I’ve lived a life of white privilege,” he said. “So I don’t experience the same things that people of color have experienced throughout their life and with these conversations over these past few weeks, couple of months, I’ve heard story after story after story of incidents where friends of mine were profiled, and treated unfairly because of the color of their skin. And it’s not right.”James is clear that his is a point of view structured by being Black. He’s said in the past he has Black children that he fears could one day be subject to the same profiling and violence he protests against now.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThat sense of frustration fueled comments that James made after a Thursday night scrimmage against the Dallas Mavericks, a game that was largely inconsequential to start with, and even moreso after James spoke.He started in a way that’s been common in the NBA restart at Disney — talking about his desire to see charges brought against Louisville police officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor in March. But it also was a meditation on how James, who has been one of the league’s high profile voices for social change for close to a decade now, has been frustrated by stops and starts, and even backward movement for what he views as progress in America.James has posted many messages on social media about Taylor, including a post last week that read: “Dear Breonna, I’m so sorry this is taking so long.” Other prominent NBA stars including Paul George and C.J. McCollum have thrown support behind Taylor’s family in the last week during media availability sessions, and James said he viewed it as a responsibility as one of the league’s leaders to do the same.“I want her family to know and I want the state of Kentucky to know that we feel for it and we want justice,” he said. “That’s what it’s all about. What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong. And this is a wrong situation that’s going on in my eyes and in a lot of other eyes, not only here in America but I bet in the world as well.”In the last eight years, James has been a key figure in some of the NBA’s most memorable calls for social justice, calling for more accountability for violence against Black people. The photo of his Heat team donning hoodies was a powerful statement after the death of teenager Trayvon Martin. In 2016, he, Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony gave a speech at the ESPYs challenging athletes to be more committed to social justice causes. Through his foundation, his I Promise school in his hometown of Akron, and an emerging voting rights organization More Than A Vote, James is commonly cited as one of the foremost athletes attempting to change the world beyond the court. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> In LeBron James’ eyes, Black Lives Matter is not a movement.Before he was a world-renowned athlete a millionaire several times over, James was poor and Black. He and his single mother moved from home to home, and James nearly had to repeat fourth grade because he missed 83 days of school while weathering housing instability.One gets the sense from James that he wonders where he would be if he had not had the gifts and work ethic that helped make him one of the most accomplished basketball players ever. To him, Black Lives Matter isn’t a movement, subject to the whims of popular culture — it is a daily struggle for Black people to feel that their lives are valued in America.“When you wake up and you’re black, that is what it is,” he said. “It shouldn’t be a movement. It should be a lifestyle. This is who we are. … I don’t like the word ‘movement’ because, unfortunately, in America and in society, there ain’t been no damn movement for us.” But James also said he wants to see more frank and open conversations with perspectives that don’t reflect his own. The increasing divisiveness of discussions of race and social injustice are also something he wants to see change.“I think one of the best things in life is communication,” he said. “No matter what, if you could just sit there and talk to someone look at someone eye to eye and say how you feel, no matter if they like it or not. You can respect them. Somebody might not agree I don’t agree what you say. But if I can look you dead in your eye and you can you can look back at me and say Listen, to each his own, I don’t agree with that, then I can respect you out of that.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs last_img read more
