Australian captain Steve Smith also voiced his support for his opposite number, saying: "I think every team around the world shines the cricket ball". Earlier, South Africa's stand-in skipper Faf du Plessis was charged by the global cricket Council (ICC) over an alleged ball tampering issue after the end of second Test of the three-Test series against Australia.
After the Fiji win Jones praised Elliot Daly and man-of-the-match Semesa Rokoduguni, who made his first appearance since he was dropped after one appearance against the All Blacks in 2014 and announced his return with two tries. "Eddie has talked about wanting to make sure that we are looking across the spectrum of players". England have now defeated two of the "big three" Southern Hemisphere teams since Eddie Jones took over, a feat which previous coaches were not able to do with such ...
Semesa Rokoduguni scored his first global tries in a man-of-the-match display against his country of birth as a ruthless England hammered Fiji 58-15 at Twickenham on Sunday (AEDT). Rokoduguni, the form winger in the Premiership this season for Bath, replaces Marland Yarde on the right wing with Goode, last season's Premiership player of the year, making his first start under Jones, ahead of Mike Brown.
Xabi Prieto headed a guilt-edged chance wide, whilst Vela also fired off target when well-placed inside the area before the break. Osasuna began strong, the first 20 minutes. Simeone highlighted those as the key moments in the victory, but was delighted with their collective display in the second half as they closed out the game.
Rose was relentless in driving to the basket, absorbing contact and making five trips to the free throw line. Russell Westbrook led all scorers with nine points. Victor Oladipo had 26 points for the Thunder. Westbrook has also tied James on the all-time triple-double leaderboard (44 apiece) and needed just one more rebound against the Pistons to boost his season average of 9.94 rebounds into double figures.
MI cornerback Jourdan Lewis was one of several Wolverines who tweeted their support, writing, "Sorry, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy". With Ohio State's double overtime win over MI taking place during the first quarter, Penn State became aware of controlling their own destiny with a win.

The Alabama Crimson Tide took the second half and pulled away from the the Auburn Tigers to victory in the 81st Iron Bowl, 30-12. No. 1 Alabama enters the Iron Bowl with certainty at quarterback in the unlikely source of dual-threat freshman star Jalen Hurts .

However, they are unbeaten in five matches in all competitions - a run that includes a memorable victory over Spanish giants Barcelona. "It is hard to say how much self-confidence this game will give us for the Bundesliga", coach Andre Schubert told reporters.
As things stand now, the college football playoff picture isn't that complicated. Ohio State-Michigan is the marquee matchup in college football this weekend. If a team started off 0-5, with say four "good" losses, then looked unstoppable on a six game winning streak against their conference, would they deserve a spot in the playoff? Both teams have a record of 10-1 on the season, and sit in the top four in the CFP rankings.
But hey, keep getting these wins, the record says what the record says and nobody's gonna take that from us". You can't turn the ball over. You have to make plays at crucial times. I know my kids would like for me to do it. "They deserve better and we get that". The 37-year-old McCown is a great guy, a true professional, but he's also the embodiment of a stalled rebuild, one that can't begin in earnest until he is replaced with a potential franchise quarterback that the team will presumably ...
Teammate Kjeldsen had some luck himself on Friday, with a hole-out from 152-yards away. England and Italy were the other big movers on day two, each posting rounds of 66 to move to seven-under and equal with the United States and France, who conjured a five-under round of 65.
After Cook pulled Josh Hazlewood for four to bring up a 235-ball Test ton, including eight fours, Kagiso Rabada gloved the right-arm seamer behind. It was fitting that in a match that was preceded by mass change to the Australian side it was two of the three youthful debutants here, Peter Handscomb and Matt Renshaw , who were in the middle as the seven-wicket triumph in the third and final Test was completed.
Barca are allegedly set to offer the 29-year-old a "contract for life" after the first El Clasico of the season at the Nou Camp next week. Luis Enrique remains optimistic his talisman will be lining up alongside now sidelined duo Andres Iniesta (knee) and Samuel Umtiti (hamstring).
Instantly, a Montreal blowout was flipped to a decent result for Toronto . Toronto talisman Sebastian Giovinco almost cut into the hosts' lead with a fine individual effort to get in behind the Montreal defense, but the Italian's curled effort from 12 yards out bent wide of Evan Bush's goal.
Rooney did have significant time on the pitch in the end as he was brought on as a 63rd minute substitute for Martial, but wasn't able to make much of a contribution as the game finished 1-1. This fixture has provided plenty of drama down the years but there was little to get the crowd excited about here, with the teams' decision to field two defensive midfielders stifling much of the attacking play.
He's the ideal player: everybody knows what he can do and what he has done."When you're a person like that, people are interested". "People like him [Rooney] don't need to answer anymore, just need to enjoy a few more years of his career and playing the best he can, which is what he tries to do.
Watkins said he wasn't concerned about the injury being a long-term issue, but he conceded he could have another surgery and return next season if the foot issues linger. Like I said, it's an extremely talented team, but we're playing at home so we feel great about that. Bills GM Doug Whaley in a morning interview on WGR Sportsradio 550 explained that although Watkins is medically cleared there are still some steps to be completed before the receiver is deemed fit for a game.
The 23-year-old was hit during a net session and sustained a hairline fracture. "Hardik was struck by a ball during a net session before the start of the Third Paytm Test match against England in Mohali ", read a press release by the BCCI.
The people who bought tickets should get their money back. "It was a disgusting basketball game". Green went up to contest and landed on Clark's throat on his way down. The Warriors (14-2) rolled up some fancy numbers, the 51.6-percent shooting, the assists and the blocks and the steals, as well as holding LA to 35.6-percent shooting.
Daley Blind came in against Feyenoord but I think we might see Marcos Rojo recalled in at centre-back with Luke Shaw keeping his place at left-back and Antonio Valencia once again on the right side of defence . Despite his milestone, the England captain missed out on the man-of-the-match award to his team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who marked his first start since September 10 with a fine display.
Mourinho has endured a hard first campaign with United so far this season, with the club sixth in the Premier League table, 11 points behind leaders and former club Chelsea, and eight points off the top four. United have not taken so few points after 13 games since the 1989-90 campaign, when Alex Ferguson's side finished 13th in the old First Division, five points clear of the relegation zone, although they did win the FA Cup.
Umesh Yadav was dropped on 9 by Cook, to his right at a lone slip, then in the same over Jayant nicked past Bairstow's right glove, leading to an angered roar from Stokes. They have played well this morning, to give them credit. Jayant Yadav scored 55 including five boundaries. The 27-year-old scored a century against the touring Australians last year at the top of the order and followed that up with 108 in a tour match against Sri Lanka at Chelmsford in May, underlining his ability to score ...
I am pleased about this and I am pleased for the players. Marcos Alonso believes Chelsea will be hard to beat if they continue playing in the same way under Antonio Conte. It is about you being better, and that you show on the training ground that you are better than another team-mate and that you deserve to be involved or not.
Mack called his former Raiders teammate "great company" and said Woodson has been encouraging him to take over games. That avoided the third tie in the NFL this season, something that hasn't happened since 1973 before the league introduced overtime.
Madrid are now unbeaten in 29 games in all competitions stretching back to April, but this was Zidane's men's best display in that run. FIFA World Player Of The Year nominee Cristiano Ronaldo actually scored four goals against Atletico Madrid, in the Madrid derby this past weekend .
They've also taken 11 straight games, including Saturday's 115-102 victory over Minnesota. In New York, Carmelo Anthony stuffed the stat sheet with 35 points, 14 rebounds, five assists and two steals to help the Knicks (8-7) beat the Charlotte Hornets (8-7) 113-111 in overtime.
They enjoy this type of football. Nevin believes that performance put down a marker to the rest of the division, with Conte having concocted a formula that allows his side to dominate on the front foot, before closing games out in "chilling" fashion.
I guess management for the Panthers must have been thinking something like 15 wins through 22 games and 11 wins fell short enough of that for them to sack their coach. Panther GM Tom Rowe , a former Hurricanes assistant coach, was named interim coach. Gerard wanted a little more size. Shortly after a 3-2 loss on the road against Carolina, Gallant found his employment was terminated.
Let's look at some of your better options on the wire for Week 13 and beyond. The 49ers play the Bears in Week 13, making Kaepernick the top streaming option for Marcus Mariota owners.

Recounts in major statewide elections are extremely rare - and they seldom succeed in changing the result. As Trevor Noah pointed out on Monday night, despite the money raised it's unlikely the recount will ultimately change the election results, and so perhaps the recount shouldn't be that big of a story.
Green Bay Packers' Randall Cobb, left, is grabbed by Philadelphia Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins during the first half of an NFL football game, Monday, Nov. 28, 2016, in Philadelphia . I would expect Carson Wentz to play a little looser and more confident tonight as well. This was a step in the right direction and a game we needed to take care of business.
I can't remember if it was Richaun Holmes or Ersan Ilyasova but one of them launched a three-pointer from the side in the third quarter with Pascal Siakam flying out at him and I remember thinking, 'man, the kid nearly got there'. He hired Casey, drafted DeRozan, Valanciunas and Ross, and traded for Lowry. He also hit all six of his triples. Philly coach Brett Brown had kind words for the Raptors, the type of team he hopes his young squad can develop into.
The France global openly disagreed with Pochettino that Spurs do not have the strength in depth to cope with both the Champions League and Premier League, after their Group E defeat to Monaco last week. The 27-year-old wasn't injured but ever since his three-match domestic ban was completed, Sissoko has yet to appear in a Premier League game following his elbowing incident with Harry Arter against Bournemouth on October 22nd.
Like I mentioned earlier, the giants have the best WR trio in all of football. As a result, it was hard to tell which offense was the most inept. The Browns can't say that. A pass in the end zone intended for wide receiver Terrelle Pryor was incomplete. Consider that, over the last two games; they've given up just three touchdowns to two teams whose quarterbacks have a combined four Super Bowls wins.
