Grimsby Town – Tamworth  1

Hosts better team, good form, fighting for top place na dpromotion, Lambs face defensive injury crisis

THE Lambs face a defensive injury crisis this weekend after both full-backs failed to finish the 90 minutes against Kidderminster on Tuesday night.

Captain Richard Tait (19/0)  managed to walk off with a suspected ankle injury while Scott Barrow (19/2) was carried off later in the same game after innocuously going down in the area.

The injuries to the duo – which are initially suspected to keep them out of the weekend trip to Grimsby – come at a bad time for the Lambs and manager Marcus Law, as centre-back Tom Marshall (17/1) is already on the treatment table and on-loan left-back, Greg Taylor, was called back by his parent club Luton Town.

Rugby, Stade Toulousain – Ospreys

DAN Biggar has handed the Ospreys a rare piece of positive injury news ahead of their clash with the four-times kings of Europe, Toulouse, in south west France this afternoon (1.35pm British Time).

Biggar flew out with the squad yesterday after passing a late fitness test on the shoulder injury he picked up during Wales’s autumn series defeat to Samoa last month.

Already without skipper Alun Wyn Jones and fellow Wales internationals Adam Jones, Ian Evans, Richard Hibbard, Jonathan Thomas, Aaron Jarvis and Richard Hibbard, the loss of the region’s leading points-scorer would have been another massive blow to take.

Rugby, Wales – Australia

Wales’s ‘worst injury crisis for 15 years’

WALES have delayed naming a team for Saturday’s must-win encounter with Australia amid their worst injury crisis for close on 15 years.

Aaron Jarvis has been officially ruled out of an encounter Warren Gatland’s team can’t afford to lose if they are to secure a spot in the top eight in the global rankings and a place among the second batch of seeds for the next World Cup.

  1. Rob Howley

    Rob Howley

The Ospreys prop is one of an estimated 17 players who are either out or uncertain of facing the Wallabies because of injuries.

Jarvis (knee), Bradley Davies (concussion), Ryan Jones (head wound), Jamie Roberts (hip) and Paul James (leg) all picked up bumps in the “brutal” encounter with New Zealand, leaving Wales’s medical team contemplating a casualty list that is rapidly approaching record proportions.

“Mark Davies, our physio, suggested the situation was similar to 1997 with the Lions, and maybe approaching the situation Wales found themselves in going to South Africa in 1998, where around 17 players were unable to make the tour,” said Rob Howley.

“When you consider how many boys were injured before the series — Adam Jones, Dan Lydiate, Rhodri Jones, Rhys Gill and Craig Mitchell come to mind — it’s fair to say we’ve had easier times.”

As well as the five ruled out before the four-Test series began, Alun Wyn Jones, Josh Turnbull, Rob McCusker, Richard Hibbard, Dan Biggar, Ian Evans, George North, Davies, Jarvis, Jones, Roberts and James have bumps of one sort or another.

James is unavailable, anyway, as he and James Hook have returned to their clubs, with the Australia match outside the IRB Test window. Biggar, Evans, North, Roberts and Ryan Jones must prove their fitness.

There is a glimmer of good news in the shape of Gethin Jenkins and Mike Phillips securing release from Perpignan and Bayonne, respectively, for the final game of the campaign.

“We are delighted that three of our France-based players, Gethin, Mike and Luke Charteris, are available,” said Howley. “But all the bumps and bruises mean we can’t pick a team until Thursday.

“The game against the All Blacks was brutal. We are just hoping some of our injured players come through.” Commendably, Howley pulled no punches in condemning New Zealand hooker Andrew Hore for his cowardly assault from behind on Bradley Davies.

“What Hore did has no place on a rugby field,” said the former Wales captain.

“It was an absolute disgrace. He has been cited, so I am sure it won’t be taken lightly. It had a huge impact on the game. It was strange to see because that is not what the All Blacks are about.

“They are the best team in the world and good enough without having to resort to foul play. So we are very surprised by the actions of this player.”

Asked should the police get involved, Howley replied: “I have seen some comments suggesting that.

“It happened on a rugby field. We have not considered that. Whether there should be a licence to go to the television match official on such decisions, that is something only the IRB can recommend.”

Hook left the camp after making just two appearances as a replacement in this series, but Howley insisted Wales had their hands tied over the Perpignan playmaker. We knew James wasn’t available for the Australia game. That’s the way the cards have been dealt,” he added. “It’s disappointing. We want our players to stay in Wales, but we understand there’s a supply-and- demand situation and we recognise the kind of money French clubs are able to offer. All we are saying to the players is that if you want to play for Wales just make sure you have clauses in your contracts which cover preparation time and your ability to play for Wales.”

He claimed some players did have the relevant release arrangements. “James tried to obtain release for this game, but he couldn’t get it. Luke Charteris has.” kiper.com.ua

Announcement of matches on Sunday the 1st round of the Russian Premier League

Champion of Russia joins the battle! “Kuban” will try to show that Lasinio Traore made the wrong choice

 

“Zenith” (St. Petersburg) – “Amkar” (Perm)

Kick-off: 15:00

TV Broadcast: NTV + Nash Football

Referee: Alex Eskov (Moscow)

Assistant referees: Dmitry Mosyakin (Moscow), Ilya Baryshnikov (Moscow)

Stadium: “Peter” (St. Petersburg).

 

In the history of the Russian championship in St. Petersburg “Zenith” once lost Permian “Amkar.” In the second round of Premier League 2005 “Zenith” could do nothing to the Urals in their field – 0:1. Note that in the past year, “Zenit” in the two games, scored four points (thanks to visiting 3-1 victory and a home 1-1 draw). If at this time, “Amkar” will share the points with the champions of the country, for the “Zenith” it would be an unpleasant coincidence, nothing more. In recent years, “blue-white-blue” have accumulated such a large percentage of self-confidence that short-term setbacks will not bring down the mood of wards Luciano Spalletti.

 

However, one disappointment in the course of the season which began in St. Petersburg people have already received your trunk. In the game for the Super Bowl champions of the country the country lost Kazan “Ruby” with a score of 0-2. In general, the experts recognized the trophy, “Ruby” thing deserved, and advised fans to “Zenith” expect the beginning of the championship with high anticipation.

 

As part of St. Petersburg team will not be injured by Miguel Danny, who is to restore full five months.Quoting the defender of “Zenith” Alexander Anyukov did not act in Samara because of illness. Over the past week Anyukov regained his fitness. The de facto head coach, “Amkar” Rustem Khuzin (a former defender of the club do not need a license giving the right to manage a team in the Premier League) has already managed to instill in his players the right attitude. In the preseason game, “Zeta” players “Amkar” decided to organize a fight “wall to wall.” In St. Petersburg, will not play Sergei Narubin disqualified. His punishment applies even to games last year. Will take place at the gates Roman Gerus.Not in the best shape remains striker Sergei Volkov. It remains to add that the captain of the “Amkar” will be in the new season, Dmitry Belorukov. Popov, Cherenchikov Peev and assistants will be the first “cap.”

 

“Krylya” (Samara) – “Terek” (Grozny)

Kick-off: 17:30

TV Broadcast: NTV + Nash Football

Referee: Sergey Karasev (Moscow)

Assistant referees: Oleg Tselovalnikov (Astrakhan), Andrew Glot (Yaroslavl)

Stadium: “Metallurg” (Samara).

 

Several years ago, “Wings of the Soviets” and “Terek” full-time game in Grozny raised suspicions in your own address. Since then, every game between them can be seen through a magnifying glass. Now the court of the first round, and each club must meet the expectations. “Wings of the Soviets” in Andrew Kobeleva try out away from the danger zone. Grozny “Terek” last year did not show a drop of stability, so you can bet the fans and players of a specific task. At this time it promises to be quite different.

 

Both teams are hard to attribute to the leaders of the national championship, so that their original goal was to gain a normal amount of points that allows you with peace of mind in the future. Before the game the chances of winning Samarans traded slightly higher due to the owner’s status. “Terek” – a decent team with a clear vector of development, but he was never known for shapely set of points in foreign stadiums.

 

The two coaches are very far from the optimal location of players. Two of the Samara defender Club (Kontsedalov and Taranov) will not participate in the match due to injury. In the control the game with the “Dnepr” Kontsedalov acted in place of central defender, and Taranov located to the left of the partner. The absence of Sergei Kornilenko related to his departure for the Olympic Games. In “Terek” was eliminated in the long term Mguni. Garden and Katsav is also unlikely to help Stanislav Cherchesovu – both seriously damaged. The most recent injury Mauricio y – recovery after stretching it will need ten – fifteen days.

“Anji” (Makhachkala) – “Kuban” (Krasnodar)

Kick-off: 20:00

TV Broadcast: NTV + Nash Football

Referee: Maxim Layushkin (Moscow)

Assistant referees: Vitali Drozdov (Moscow), Anton Kobzev (Moscow)

Stadium: “Dynamo” (Makhachkala).

 

In last season’s “Anji” and “Kuban” as many as four times the games were carried out with each other at the level of the Premier League. Moreover, in two cases of Makhachkala and Krasnodar played against each other for once standings Premier League was divided into the strengths and weaknesses. It is not hard to guess that the “yellow-green” companies are located in the first place. By the way, mutual jokes about the same color teams last season, became a bone of contention. Within the first two laps, “Anji” could not hit the gate of the Krasnodar Club. 0:0 0:1 in Makhachkala and Krasnodar was not satisfied with the ambitious rich Caspian coast. Revenge came only in the third case, when “Anji” has achieved excellence through balls Akhmedov and Boussoufa. Mubarak scored in the second game. By the twenty-second minute the score was already 2-0 in favor of “Anji”, but Zorah and Armas played a handicap. At the parties decided to settle down.

 

Talk about physical fitness should be maintained, rather, in the middle and end of the season, when the forces of many teams already do at the end. It was then that the fact of European Cup matches, “Anji” with the Hungarian “Honvéd” could be perceived in a negative sense. Now, Makhachkala additional games may be just at hand, especially in the light of the fact that pre-season training camp Guus Hiddink could not compete with the planned teams. Footballers ‘Anji’ won 1-0, and, Hiddink did not abuse the lack of rules in the European cup the limit on foreign players. At the starting line-up came just seven representatives of the Foreign Legion. Rasim Tagirbekov and Shamil Lakhiyalov may well appear in the starting lineup for the match with the “Kuban”: both in the Europa League started the match on the bench. At the same time, a lot of strength left in Ramenskoye Yuri Zhirkov.

 

Two clubs in the same style had a final workout. Hiddink and Petrescu have focused on working with the ball. In Krasnodar, apart from the rest worked Anton Rogochy and Bogdan Karyukin. It is reported that both have microdamages, and the coaching staff decided not to risk their health.

Club Friendly » Mechelen (Bel) – Getafe (Esp)

I made analise but strange odds raise
Getafe is in Netherlands, there they will play 5 pre season friendlyes. They played first game two days ago and destroyed Club Brugge 5-1. First half played reseves, 2nd half come first team and for Club Brugge played best squad. Now can be just better (some players to play from beggining because next game is for 6 days). Abdel Barrada in on Olympics, no other missings in Getafe. defender Diaz, midfielder Casquero left club of standard players (we can add Rios here). they bring some good and perspective players, specially mean here on lafita and Abraham.
As they destroyed Cl Brugge, they can do the same to Mechelen which is much weaker than them. They loose 4 days ago vs Al Shabab. They have five injury players, Pedersen (new striker), Destorme (rug, key player), Zhairi (knie, midfielder), Vidarsson (hamstrings) en Van Damme (knie, new defender). Also they sold some players, specially they will cry for winger Jonathan Wilmet and Gorius (ofensive midfielder, 15 goals).

England are likely to go for broke in the third and final Test in Port Elizabeth with as many as six changes of personnel from the side that lost the series at Ellis Park last weekend. read

South Africa v England: injuries to leading players hinders Stuart Lancaster’s hopes of ending tour on a high

Stuart Lancaster only has to glance out of his Port Elizabeth hotel window to realise how precarious a balancing act sport can be, the surfers toppling off their boards into the Indian Ocean with the same regularity as his leading players are being felled by injury

Making a point: England attack coach Mike Catt (left) and head coach, Stuart Lancaster, put the players through their paces ahead of the third Test against South Africa

No sooner had Lancaster named Alex Corbisiero in the team for Saturday’s third Test at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium than the London Irish prop suffered a knee injury to leave Joe Marler with the task of holding up the loosehead side of the England scrum.

In isolation, the change is standard fare. In the context of this trip, the latest set-back may prove critical. As soon as Corbisiero (and lock Tom Palmer) came on last week at Ellis Park, England’s forward play found teeth. If England are to spare their blushes with a face-saving win in the final Test, then they have to find an edge in every single phase of play. Corbisiero’s absence makes that equation trickier to solve.

And if England were to lose again then the tour would be considered a failure, no matter that players are being developed for the future. Attack coach, World Cup-winner, Mike Catt, was in bullish mood on Friday in that regard.

“It probably took Clive Woodward three years to get to where Stuart Lancaster is now,” said Catt. “These youngsters will look back on this tour as the kick-start they needed to be very successful.”

That’s as may be. Even Catt though, out of work on Monday after completing his short-term contract, recognises the importance of the here and now.

England are facing their worst ever sequence of losses against any country, the nine successive defeats already matching a previous losing run against New Zealand and they have slipped down the world rankings to fifth place, outside the leading seeds with the World Cup draw to come at the end of the year.

Of course, Lancaster has only been in situ for six months and has achieved notable things. However, with three Tests to come against the southern superpowers in November, he needs to get a notch on his belt. The loss over the last few days alone of his captain, Chris Robshaw, scrum-half, Ben Youngs, wing Ugo Monye and now Corbisiero, makes that task all that much more difficult.

Lancaster has already invoked the Lions spirit of 2009, getting Monye and back-up hooker Lee Mears, to give the squad a gee-up with recollections of what the pair felt as part of the Lions group that beat the Boks in Johannesburg in the last Test of that tour, with the series already lost, 2-0.

England are in search of a pick-me-up along the same lines, although mention of that tour has already been made within the Springbok camp. They do not want to be suckered again.

Lancaster has made changes of choice as well as through adversity, looking to bolster England’s ball-carrying options with the preference for Thomas Waldrom over Ben Morgan at No 8.

James Haskell’s elevation into the Robshaw slot ought to generate some drive. Haskell himself realises that he cannot get drawn into being a gung-ho figure, all bluster and no brain. He has even sought advice during his time in New Zealand from that peerless back-row operator, Richie McCaw.

“It’s not about charging around mindlessly, it’s about where you can be most productive,” said Haskell.

Robshaw has been the bedrock of this England team, topping tackle counts and ball-carrying stats. Haskell has to show that he can be smart and decisive. His mates in the England pack also need to do a serious shift in defence. If South Africa are allowed to get off to the start they did seven days ago, then there is no prospect of victory.

“We can’t go to sleep or let them in,” said Catt. “When that big green machine gets rolling it’s very hard to stop.”

Quite. If England do manage to hold the line and deliver quality ball of their own, then the back line do have some menace about them. Harlequins scrum-half Danny Care is itching to show that he can be a pest on the field (now that he no longer is off it) and trigger up-tempo attacks with his trademark taps and blindside breaks.

The centre pairing of Manu Tuilagi and Jonathan Joseph needs to get hands on ball and show what they have to offer, aware too that Alex Goode runs perceptive lines from the rear.

The Springboks, with three changes, have their own injury issues and are likely to be less structured as a result. England have to make use of every possible advantage. If they don’t, then it won’t just be the local surfers finishing all washed-up.

Hønefoss use artificial grass at their home stadium. Lillestrøm use natural grass at their home stadium.
Lillestrøms Petter Vaagan Moen failed to be a success for the Premier League side Queens Park Rangers, and has returned to Tippeligaen to try to get his career back on track. He made immidiate impact in his first pre-season games with many goals scored, and very solid work rate. He actually scored a hat-trick against Molde 9 days ago.
Vaagan Moen scored 14 goals in 27 games for Brann two seasons ago, and he is solid on penalties. He failed to be a star in Premier League, but he normally holds top Tippeliga class. Hes not facing Manchester United or Arsenal this time, and its big difference of class when facing newly promoted Hønefoss. I think there is value in backing Vaagan Moen to score here, at very good odds.
