Rory aims to roll with the punches

first_img “Coming off the back of a great year last year, and I guess expecting myself to emulate that or even try and do better, it hasn’t really happened so far,” the Northern Irishman admitted. “I feel like it’s close. “I’ve been seeing a lot of positive signs in my game the last few weeks. You always want to go out and play well and contend and win tournaments and I haven’t done enough of that this year.” Asked what he would do to relax off the course this week, McIlroy added: “I was half thinking of going to the steps in the city, the Rocky Steps wherever they are and going to run up those.” McIlroy might best be served conserving his energy however, with the torrential rain which fell on Merion’s East Course on Friday and Monday perhaps boosting his chances of victory but making for a long and tiring week. “There might be a few similarities to the way Congressional played to the way this week’s going to play,” he added. “It was soft then and it’s obviously going to be soft again this week. “It’s great to have my name on that trophy and obviously I would like to get it on that trophy a few more times as well. The US Open’s always a very special tournament, a tournament that all the guys look forward to. “They call it the toughest test in golf and it’s a pity that it has rained so much the last few days and might not play as tough as it usually does, but it’s still going to be a good test out there and you’re still going to have to play some good golf. It’s probably going to play into my hands a bit more.” Rory McIlroy is considering a visit to the ‘Rocky steps’ in Philadelphia as he looks to prove he is fighting fit at this week’s US Open at Merion. Press Associationcenter_img McIlroy has failed to punch his weight so far this season, losing his status as world number one to Tiger Woods, walking off the course during the defence of his Honda Classic title and looking a shadow of the player who won five times last season to take the money list titles on both sides of the Atlantic. However, the 24-year-old insists he is close to rediscovering that sort of form ahead of an event he won by eight shots with a record 16 under par total at Congressional two years ago. last_img read more

No action over Aguero challenge

first_imgManchester City striker Sergio Aguero is expected to escape any disciplinary action for a studs-up lunge on West Ham’s Mark Noble. Aguero’s challenge saw his boot go over the ball and connect with the Hammers midfielder but it is understood referee Martin Atkinson saw the incident at the time and decided to take no action. That would prevent the Football Association taking retrospective action against City’s Argentina striker and ensures he will not be banned for the Manchester derby. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce had complained about the challenge, saying: “It was a dangerous tackle and the referee was right in front of it.” Meanwhile, West Brom defender Craig Dawson is also set to escape any action over an elbow on Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni. Palace boss Neil Warnock called the incident an “assault” but referee Mark Clattenburg is understood to have seen the challenge and allowed the Baggies first goal to stand in Saturday’s 2-2 draw. Speroni required lengthy treatment before being substituted by Warnock,who said he wanted to protect the keeper from suffering any potential damage. Warnock said: “If officials can’t see a smash like that then I’ve got to protect my goalkeeper. “It’s almost an assault. He comes from two or three yards away and smashes him in the face. I don’t understand why at least one of the officials can’t see that.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News Lower order batting contributions key for success in Australia: Virat Kohli

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team skipper, has urged the batsmen to correct the mistakes made on tours to South Africa and England but stressed on the need for the lower order to contribute more if India are to achieve success in the upcoming series against Australia starting on November 21.Speaking in the press conference ahead of the team’s departure on Friday, Kohli said the focus must be on the lower order batsmen contributing a lot more. “We understand it can get difficult for the top because the bowlers are bowling a good spell. Middle order is relatively easy. Lower order contributions are crucial. In England, their lower order contributed much better than ours and that helped them win the series. We want the guys to be fearless in that position. An all-rounder who can bowl has no pressure and if he gets going, the course of the series can be changed. From top to bottom, we need to bat together,” Kohli said.Read More | Virat Kohli and the Adelaide love affair: A match made in heavenIn the recent series against England which India lost 1-4, Sam Curran, batting at No.8 shared vital partnerships with the tail to help the hosts recover.

At the Rose Bowl in Southampton, he smashed 78 to help England bounce back from 86/6 to 252.Everyone must contributeThe batting unit has consistently suffered on overseas tours in 2018, with only Kohli standing out. When asked about the struggles of the batting, Kohli said the team batted well in patches but the mistakes committed were extreme.Read More | Down Under – The making of Virat Kohli, the modern legend“We sat down and figured out what went wrong in England. To be honest, not much went wrong. However, when we made the mistakes, it was extreme. We played good cricket, but the mistakes were extreme. We need to control a tough situation better and how to find a way out of it rather than getting out of it immediately. Our focus will be how the batsmen bat together on the tour,” Kohli said.Key to success in AustraliaKohli stressed that the fitness levels of the Indian cricket team are up, which is a big boost in Australian conditions. The Indian skipper also praised the form of the bowlers, who have been consistently taking 20 wickets in Tests.Read More | This Day That Year: Sachin Tendulkar makes his Test debut vs Pakistan“The pitches in Australia can get boring at times. The kookaburra does not move much. It is about patience and maintaining the tempo well,” Kohli added.In the last couple of decades, South Africa has been the only team to achieve success Down Under in three consecutive Test series. Kohli said the Indian bowlers, with pacers like Jaspreet Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami  as well as spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav in the team, have the capability to maintain the pressure on the Australian batsmen“It is about patience and maintaining the tempo well. A team like South Africa have done well because guys like Morne Morkel, Dale Steyn and now Kagiso Rabada have relentlessly bowled in the right areas. I am confident that my bowlers can do the job. he bowlers have the capability to take 20 wickets every time and that is a great feeling,” Kohli said.Indian coach Ravi Shastri said the team needed to seize the tough moments in order to gain success. “I see a lot of progress across all formats. I say this despite the score line in England. When we look at actual performances in all formats, especially on overseas conditions, I am more than happy. If we learn from the mistakes in South Africa and England, it will stand us in good stead in Australia,” Shastri said.India will be determined to win their first-ever Test series in Australia, which begins on December 6 in Adelaide. last_img read more

Coach Edmonds hails Guyana’s ‘outstanding performance’ at 48th CARIFTA Games

first_imgJULIAN Edmonds, head coach of Guyana’s CARIFTA Games team, showered the athletes with praises for what he called an “outstanding performance” at the 48th edition of the event, held over the Easter weekend in the Cayman Islands.Guyana finished with a record 10 medals – four gold, two silver and four bronze – and according to Edmonds, the result should be celebrated, given the fact that “CARIFTA Games is a very tough competition where every country bring their ‘A game’. We finished 4th out of 27 countries ahead of powerhouse Barbados, Bermuda and Grenada and had an equal four gold medals as Trinidad; they finished 3rd but had more silver medals.”Claudrice McKoy, who won gold in the Women’s U-20 1500 metres and bronze in the women’s 3000 metres Open, along with Chantoba Bright (gold in Women’s U-20 long jump and silver in the women’s U-20 triple jump) are hanging up their cleats after some stellar years at the CARIFTA Games, and will now transition to competing at the senior level for Guyana.McKoy, in 2017, won gold in the 3 000 metres open, and bronze in the 1500 metres. She missed the 2018 Championships due to an injury.Julian EdmondsBright, on the other hand, at the 2016 CARIFTA Games won silver in the triple and the long jump. In 2017 she won gold in the long jump and bronze in the triple jump. In 2018, she won gold in the long jump, bronze in the triple jump and silver in the 4×400 relay.“Chantoba (Bright) is a CARIFTA legend and will be missed by team Guyana who wish her well at the senior level. Claudrice (McKoy) has contributed well for Guyana at this level and will also be missed,” said Edmonds.Both McKoy and Bright compete at the collegiate level in the USA.Meanwhile, Matthew Gordon (gold in the Boys U-17 3000 metres) and Anisha Gibbons (gold in the Girls U-17 javelin) were the debutants who found themselves atop the podium and Edmonds believes that the newcomers at the CARIFTA Games impressed enough to make him a believer that Guyana’s rise at the regional showpiece is not by luck.“Matthew is a wonderful young man. He rebounded from the 1500 metres after being bumped on and nearly fell in a race we thought he would have won – to win a well-planned 3000 metres. He will serve Guyana well in the future,” the coach opined.Edmonds further added that “Anisha is the real deal! She missed the Games record by three metres. These athletes showed maturity beyond their age. We also had Loneil Marks, Keliza Smith and Brianna Charles, debutants making it to sprint finals which is a good achievement that will give them experience going forward”.This year, Guyana sent a 21-man contingent to the games – the largest in the country’s history at the championships.GUYANA CARIFTA GAMES MEDAL BREAKDOWNClaudrice McKoy – Gold (Women’s U-20 1500 metres), Bronze (3000 metres Open)Chantoba Bright – Gold (Women’s U-0 Long Jump) Silver (U-20 Triple Jump)Anisha Gibbons – Gold (Girls’ U-17 Javelin)Matthew Gordon – Gold (Boys’ U-17 3000 metres)Joanna Archer – Silver (Women’s U-20 800 metres)Audriel Austin – Bronze (Girls’ U-17 800 metres)Shaquka Tyrell – Bronze (Girls’ U-17 1500 metres)Princess Browne – Bronze (Girls’ U-17 Triple Jump)last_img read more

Football heads to Indiana to take on Irish

first_imgThe return of freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis gives USC’s offense a massive boost. As the passing performance against Washington showed, Slovis’ ability to make quick reads and deliver an accurate ball are integral to the success of the Trojan offense against capable defenses.  Coming off their bye week, the 3-2 Trojans will look to rebound from a sloppy loss at Washington against a talented Notre Dame team currently ranked No. 9 in the country.  Though the freshman still has plenty of issues to work through, he’s a talented and intelligent passer, and with an array of weapons at his disposal, he should be poised to produce against a Notre Dame defense that may be vulnerable against the pass. Although they’ve been statistically stout for most of the season, the Irish have been shredded through the air against solid opponents like Virginia and Georgia.  Much like Washington, the tight end position plays a big role for the Fighting Irish, so the Trojans will be tested in the passing game across the middle. Luckily for USC, its young secondary has been solid and steadily improving over the past few contests, and the return of sophomores safety Talanoa Hufanga and cornerback Olaijah Griffin will provide a significant boost to the unit. So long as the Trojans generate pressure consistently, they’re primed to be able to counter the Notre Dame passing game.  Senior wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. will look to exploit an injured and thin Notre Dame secondary Saturday. Pittman leads USC receivers with 501 yards and four touchdowns through five games this season. (Sarah Ko | Daily Trojan) On the ground, the Irish have been solid all year, but the return of junior running back Jafar Armstrong could shake things up significantly. Armstrong is an explosive playmaker, but he has missed almost the entire season due to an abdominal injury suffered Week 1. Armstrong will suit up this Saturday, and Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly has said he hopes for the back to play around 20 snaps this week. USC has often been vulnerable on the ground this year, and a strong day from Armstrong and company could be too much for the USC defense to bear. Notre Dame’s pass rush is perhaps the unit’s greatest strength, spearheaded by star senior edge rusher Julian Okwara, but the Trojans have been strong in pass protection all season long. Dominating through the air is likely USC’s best chance to win this game; the pass game will have to produce at a high level for the Trojans to pull out a win.  Senior quarterback Ian Book has been fantastic for the Fighting Irish thus far. Book can do it all — he’s a smart passer with a strong arm, great awareness and dangerous mobility. He’s been the engine that drives the Notre Dame offense, and he’s done it with incredible efficiency, throwing for 13 touchdowns to only two interceptions and posting a 65.5 completion percentage.  This year’s edition of the storied rivalry looks once again like an unbalanced affair between a potential College Football Playoff contender in the Fighting Irish and an unranked and unsettled USC, but there’s a lot at stake for both teams going into the matchup. The Trojans desperately need to avoid a second straight loss, and the Irish will need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. Add in the fervor of one of college football’s best rivalries, and you’ve got a recipe for an interesting Saturday.center_img USC Offense vs Notre Dame Defense The ground game looks a little more dicey, as the up-and-down USC rushing attack will be pitted against a Notre Dame defense that has shut down the run games of two opponents over the past three weeks. It’ll be a tall task for the Trojans to be as productive on the ground as they were against the Huskies. The loss of graduate cornerback Shaun Crawford only makes matters worse for the Irish in that area, especially against a Trojan offense with so many dangerous weapons in the passing game. Senior wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. currently leads the Trojans in receiving, and a favorable matchup could set him up for a big night.  Despite the apparent disparity between the unranked Trojans and No. 9 Fighting Irish, these teams match up fairly well against each other. Notre Dame is still the better team on paper, but this Trojan squad is plenty capable of going toe-to-toe with them.  Prediction: 35-28, Notre Dame Notre Dame Offense vs USC Defense USC should be motivated to avoid back-to-back losses and a slide to 3-3; I wouldn’t be shocked if the Trojans pull off the road upset against their rivals. This could be a much more intense game than many assume. Nonetheless, home field advantage in South Bend is huge, and the Irish should be able to hang on for a victory if they execute properly.last_img read more
