#1 increase when his minutes restriction is lifted. von corse178 14.08.2019 10:54

England coach Wayne Bennett has pledged Brisbane Broncos backing for the 2017 World Club Series.Plans for the annual clash between the leading clubs from Super League and the NRL were thrown into disarray earlier this week when Melbourne Storm officially withdrew.They were promptly followed by a host of other Australian outfits, who claimed it interfered with their preparations for the new domestic season.Wigan and Cronulla, the two 2016 Grand Final winners, will meet in the traditional World Club Challenge at the DW Stadium on the weekend of Feb. 16-17.However, uncertainty surrounds the other two scheduled ties in the recently-expanded World Club Series following the snub from beaten NRL Grand Finalists Melbourne, who were due to play Super League runners-up Warrington.Brisbane had offered to host Wigan if they had lost the Super League Grand Final and Bennett, a long-time advocate of the international game, says he has already been in touch with Rugby Football League chief executive Nigel Wood to reassure him of his clubs commitment to the series.We would be keen to travel, Bennett said in his first interview to English journalists since his appointment in February. I spoke to Nigel on Monday night and told him that the whole concept has got the clubs backing.We love coming over, weve enjoyed it in the last couple of years as a club and were also trying to host one here in the pre-season. But if that doesnt come to fruition and theres a vacancy to come over to England we will certainly go.The other clubs have all got their reasons Im sure, but we dont find it interferes with our season really. Weve played in a Grand Final, gone over for the World Club Series and started the following year well, so I cant find a fault with it. Personally Id be extremely disappointed if we shared the same view.Meanwhile, Bennett said he would have had no qualms about picking Australia-born players in his 24-man squad for the Four Nations Series, even though he opted not to in the end.Twins Brett and Josh Morris, who have both represented the Kangaroos, and Newcastle Knights scrum-half Trent Hodkinson were among a raft of players linked with a switch of allegiance.I was considering any player that was eligible for England, whether they were Australia-born, Australia-based or simply English, Bennett said. It didnt faze me in any way.The speculation got out of control though. It was purely media-driven in this country, I dont know what it was like in England.At the time I said nothing about it but Ill pick the best 24 players to play for England in my opinion. If theyre Australia-based, I would have stood by that. Patrik Laine Jets Jersey . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. http://www.jetsauthentic.com/authentic-bryan-little-jets-jersey/ . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. Dmitry Kulikov Jersey . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. Bryan Little Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. The NBA season is only a week old, and, entering Wednesday, every team has played somewhere between three and five games, so were not exactly talking about a big sample size here.But basketball isnt baseball, and we dont need 200 plate appearances to get a better idea of each players value. A set of eyes and a look at the numbers can be very revealing, even in a short amount of time, and already we are seeing some early-season trends that have drastically changed the rankings since our last update in mid-October.Moving upRussell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder: We slid Westbrook down to No. 2 once James Harden received point guard eligibility, but its difficult to consider Westbrook anything but No. 1 after the numbers he put up in his first week without Kevin Durant in Oklahoma City. Facing lower-tier opponents in his first three games, the Thunder star posted two triple-doubles and missed a third by one assist, averaging 38.7 points, 12.3 rebounds, 11.7 assists and even throwing in 2.7 3s per game. If hes going to put up near triple-double averages while also making 3-pointers this season, he has the edge on not only Harden but on everybody in the league.Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans: Davis has never played more than 68 games in a season, which is why we ranked him at No. 9 for much of September before sliding him down to 11 after the news of a preseason ankle injury. His lack of durability makes him a huge risk, and we all know that. Still, as far as pure production goes, hes right there with Westbrook for the top spot and has to be considered almost a 1B to Westbrooks 1A. The Pelicans star power forward averaged a mind-blowing 37 points, 13 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.5 steals and 3 blocks in his first four games.Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors: In some ways, the Warriors already feel like Durants team, which is weird to even think about, but it shows in his early-season numbers. His scoring (28.5 PPG), rebounding (9 RPG) and shooting percentages (57.4 FG/91.7 FT) are all ahead of last seasons pace, as are his steals and blocks, and some metrics have Durant ranked ahead of Westbrook and Davis for No. 1 thus far. Weve moved him up from No. 5 to No. 3.Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks and Hassan Whiteside, Miami Heat: Both of these players were considered low first-rounders or high second-rounders, and if drafts were held again today theres a good chance theyd each go in the middle of the first round. Antetokounmpos well-rounded game is ahead of even the loftiest of expecttations at this point (23.dddddddddddd3 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 5.8 APG, 1 SPG, 2 BPG and 0.8 3PG), while Whitesides combination of scoring (19.8 PPG), rebounding (13.8 RPG), shot-blocking (3 BPG) and efficient shooting (60 percent from the field) makes him one of the games elite big men.Gorgui Dieng, Minnesota Timberwolves and Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers: We thought we had Dieng and Turner ranked aggressively in our last update, and guess what -- we were wrong! Whats interesting is the difference in hype, as Dieng tends to float under the radar on a young Minnesota team with a number of much higher-profile stars, while Turner entered the season with as much fanfare as any second-year player. Whats clear is both should be ranked much higher, and thats why weve moved Dieng and Turner to No. 21 and 22, respectively. Dieng simply does it all (14.3 PPG, 11 RPG, 2 APG, 1.7 SPG, 1.7 BPG while shooting 64.3 FG and 87.5 FT), while Turner makes the most of his 29-30 minutes on the court each night, particularly as a scorer (18 PPG), rebounder (9.3 RPG) and shot-blocker (3 BPG). Aging big man Al Jefferson doesnt appear to be someone who will hinder Turners upside this season, as we feared might be the case.Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers: Another big man who oozes superstar, Embiid is doing things on the court most 7-footers can only dream of; taking players off the dribble and spotting up from 3-point range. The 76ers are taking it slow with his return to the court after two missed seasons, but his 17.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG and 2.7 BPG stand to increase when his minutes restriction is lifted. Remember, hes averaged less than 21 minutes a game so far!Other notable risers:DeMar DeRozan, Toronto RaptorsJonas Valanciunas, Toronto RaptorsWesley Matthews, Dallas MavericksAvery Bradley, Boston CelticsJusuf Nurkic, Denver NuggetsGeorge Hill, Utah JazzTim Frazier, New Orleans PelicansT.J.
