perth_map

India and Australia are the most successful teams of the U-19 World Cup, having won the trophy three times each. Ishan Porel was India's star bowler in the match with 4 for 23. The contribution of the tail-enders was enormous, especially with Abhishek Sharma putting up a useful 23 off just 8 deliveries. Australia's bowling innings could be summed up by their fielding faults. Read More »

perth_map

The Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter on Saturday to make room for Bradford, who last played at Chicago on October 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury. The Vikings have four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster: Keenum, Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater and Kyle Sloter . Bradford played in just one full game this campaign, throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a week one win over the Saints before suffering a non-contact knee injury late ... Read More »

Australian Open 2017-18: Rafael Nadal seeded top in Men's single

perth_map

Venus Williams's quarter also includes fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina, a recent champion in Brisbane, and 13th-seeded Sloane Stephens, who won last year's United States Open but has lost all seven matches she's played since. Australia's sole men's seed, Nick Kyrgios, takes on Brazilian Rogerio Dutra Silva. This was Nadal's first match in a while. Nadal was naturally rusty after his extended break but looked free from his notorious knee problems and is not alone heading to the Australian ... Read More »

Morgan has been delighted by the progress England have made under Bayliss since the 2015 World Cup saying they have improved a lot faster than anyone thought they would. England's formidable attack will be missing the likes of Ben Stokes who is yet to receive a green signal from Police Authority of Bristol, England . Read More »

Conte: Wanted Alexis at Juve…

perth_map

The Premier League leaders, Manchester City have rejected the price tag placed on, Alexis Sanchez , according to reports Sky Sports News. United's readiness to offload Mkhitaryan also gives the Old Trafford outfit an advantage over City, who have no plans to offer a player in exchange and ruled out using Raheem Sterling as a makeweight for Sanchez back in August.

'We have to shoot the puck': Penguins' stars dominate Wings

perth_map

As I pointed out a couple of weeks ago, that is a significant drop in the team's ability to win from a season ago when neither Crosby or Malkin scored (a half goal per game drop, and a points percentage of only.333 versus.466 a year ago). Malkin has scored in three straight games. Aaron Calixte scored 16 points, Danny Evans 14 and Andrew Fleming 12 for ME while Ilija Stojiljkovic had 10 rebounds. Read More »

Pair of Clemson DL will return to Tigers for 2018

perth_map

He was also considered a likely first-round selection in the National Football League draft if he gave up the rest of his college eligibility. Fields broke up two passes and posted 16 tackles. Joseph, a 6-foot, 225-pound linebacker, was Clemson's second-leading tackler with 80 stops to go along with 4 1/2 tackles for loss and 10 quarterback hurries. Read More »

Mets Sign Adrian Gonzalez

perth_map

The Mets have first baseman Dominic Smith already on the roster, who would presumably be the team's starter on Opening Day should they choose not to make a move in free agency. Gonzalez can afford to take less money for a better situation since he's still being paid $22.357 million by the Braves for 2018. He played for the Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres and the Boston Red Sox before joining the Dodgers in midseason in 2012. Read More »

Can the Tennessee Titans hang with the New England Patriots?

perth_map

But that hasn't changed the approach for Brady, who is preparing for his 35th playoff start in the aftermath of recent reports suggesting discord between himself , coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft . He finished with 12 carries for 28 yards, which was nine yards less than Mariota's rushing total. PATRIOTS: QUESTIONABLE: DT Alan Branch (knee), RB Rex Burkhead (knee), LB Marquis Flowers (illness), RB Mike Gillislee (knee), DE Eric Lee (ankle, finger), RB James ... Read More »

Controversial Tomic fails to qualify for Australian Open

perth_map

Asked on Sunday whether the loss brought his career to a crossroads, Tomic responded sarcastically. Tomic remained focused and he clinched the breaker by 7-4 to find himself in the final qualifying round, staying on the court for much longer than he was expected after the first 60 minutes but happy to score a much-needed win that keeps him in contention.

The Eagles soar into the NFC Championship Game

perth_map

The Eagles would settle for anything better than what Foles had been to this point. "Just being a part of this team, that's what this has been about. INCONSISTENT OFFENSE: These weren't the Falcons who lit up the scoreboard on their way to winning the NFC championship previous year. That score came after the Eagles took a 12-10 lead on a 37-yard third quarter field goal by Elliott. Read More »

Warriors top Raptors despite blowing 27-point lead

The Raptors also dropped to 1-2 without point-guard Kyle Lowry , who's day-to-day with a bruised tailbone. The Warriors are now ranked 4th in pace, averaging 102.42 possessions per game, while the previously slow-paced Raptors have played at the 9th fastest pace this season. Read More »

Conte: There was no transfer talk when I spoke to Sanchez

perth_map

However, United need the 28-year-old while Eric Bailly deals with injury and Phil Jones remains brittle. But Wenger hasn't given up hope of Ozil extending his stay with the club. And because they want to replace me they have to spend 50 or 60 million. "And you will have more and more players going to the end of their contract because of that". Read More »

Federer favourite despite tough Australian Open draw

perth_map

During the four months since Rafael Nadal's closing, charging, vaguely awkward, utterly effective backhand volley went through the court untouched to end the U.S. Tennis isn't all about Grand Slams though, as much as we'd like to make it to be. The Swiss 2014 champion has not been able to play a warm-up event, having resumed training in November following knee surgery. Read More »

Pembroke Pines Officer Joey Cabrera responded to the call near US 27 and Johnson Street in far western Pembroke Pines, Florida, Thursday night after an off-duty Customs & Border Patrol officer spotted the enormous snake slithering just off the roadway. Read More »

Ten-man Leicester hold lacklustre Chelsea

perth_map

And Leicester became the third consecutive team to blunt Chelsea's expesively assembled forward line, coping comfortably with everything Conte's side could muster, even after Ben Chilwell was sent off midway through the second half. The Foxes were superb throughout the first half and had Antonio Conte's side on the back foot for the majority of the time , without creating many clear openings on goal. Read More »

New England Patriots: 5 players to watch for vs Tennessee Titans

perth_map

That's what we're getting paid for, so to be a professional is to put everything aside and go out there and do the best you can for the team and try and help us win. "We do what we always do. I think he saw that, and, obviously, he's a quick, fast learner". "Once we walk on that field", LeBeau said , "we won't know who the hell's on the other side of the field to be honest with you".

Habs' Danault stretchered off after shot to head

perth_map

With 1:37 remaining in the second period, the 6-foot-9, 250-pound Chara wound up a blasted a shot from the blue line. Danault collapsed immediately after taking the puck up high and he stayed down clutching his head. A stretcher was called for and a full medical team was quickly on the ice. Both teams returned to their respective locker rooms after Danault was wheeled off the ice, and the final 97 seconds of the second period were played after a regular intermission. Read More »

Eagles QB Foles ready to prove doubters wrong

perth_map

But let's look at the reasons why the Eagles can win this game. Their best bet is to hold the Falcons under 20 points all game and to set Philadelphia's offense up with good field position as much as possible. The total has gone over in six of the Titans' last seven games on the road against the Patriots. Just go be Nick. So close to a Super Bowl victory previous year, the devastating loss appears to have had a carryover effect for Atlanta , as they've underachieved all season. Read More »

No. 8 Tech upsets No. 2 West Virginia in comeback win

Texas Tech is having arguably its best season in program history. Red Raiders coach Chris Beard said he's preparing like Ahmad "will play every minute of the game". Junior Brandone Francis had the second most points on the team with a total of 17. Defensively, Texas Tech yields 60.2 points per game against the opposing teams. Read More »

Chelsea misfires again in 0-0 draw against Leicester in EPL

perth_map

After 14 matches in 46 days, the Blues are feeling the strain. Conte has been out-spoken about Chelsea's transfer policy, which started in the summer with the high-profile failure to land Romelu Lukaku. He also squandered about three or four clear goal scoring chances in the league game versus Arsenal that surely would have seen them collect all three points. Read More »

Lance Stephenson successfully annoyed LeBron James in Pacers' win over Cavs

We all should have known at this point what would happen next. This would all be a lot easier if the Cavs knew what LeBron James planned to do once he becomes a free agent this summer, but that answer isn't coming any time soon. They caught me on the retaliation. "But he played well tonight". Nope. He had four points in 25 minutes on Thursday night. LVP: You can blame Bojan Bogdanovic for a trio of ugly turnovers, but he redeemed himself a bit by knocking down a pair of 3-pointers. Read More »

Patriots RBs Burkhead, Gillislee out vs. Titans

perth_map

Gillislee, Branch and Burkhead were all listed as questionable, so Croston, Britt, Bademosi and Harris are healthy scratches. It looks like Burkhead will have to wait a little longer, and if New England can't take care of business on Saturday evening, he'll have to wait a whole lot longer than that for his return.

Warriors guard Curry sidelined with ankle sprain

perth_map

But the very next day, Curry would dismiss any concerns surrounding his ankle injury. He sat out the loss to the Los Angeles Clippers and Friday's win over the Milwaukee Bucks as a precaution. The return of Curry, who rolled his ankle when he slipped toward the end of shoot-around Wednesday morning, should provide a much-appreciated jolt to a team that is playing less than 24 hours after its 108-94 win over the Bucks.

Pirates' Gerrit Cole Traded To Houston Astros

perth_map

FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman first reported the details of the deal. Cole, now 27, had a down year in 2017 with a 4.26 ERA in 33 starts, but he struck out 196 batters in 203 innings. He put up career lows in several categories last season, including ERA, home run rate and FIP. Moran, 25, hit.364 (4x11) with a homer and three RBI in seven games for the Astros in 2017. Read More »

One coach model can not last - Morgan

Liam Plunkett's development into a top ODI bowler has been a boon for England who have found his wicket-taking ability more than handy. "It's a massive challenge against one of the best teams in the world, we're looking forward to doing battle with them and trying to take this series". Read More »

Nadal and Wawrinka boost for Australian Open

A few minutes later when the formalities were completed, Federer found out how hard defending his title could be after landing in the same half as six-time champion Novak Djokovic . The seedings have gone largely according to the ATP world rankings, although Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori are out injured and women's champion Serena Williams opted not to play after giving birth in September.

Run-outs, Ashwin boost India against Proteas

perth_map

The Virat Kohli-led side suffered a 72-run defeat in the first match in Cape Town to go down 0-1 in the ongoing series against South Africa . His pulling was strong in the morning session, but he got into a couple of uncomfortable positions during one over from Jasprit Bumrah after lunch, misjudging one pull shot that feel short of mid-on, while a few balls later a top edge flew over the 'keeper's head for four.

Centurion Test: Proteas suffer mini collapse after solid start

Thereafter captain Faf du Plessis (24) and Keshav Maharaj (10) closed out the day without further damage. South Africa were 182 for two wickets at tea after winning the toss and batting on an easy-paced pitch. Tall, elegantly lazy, authoritative, equally balance both front and back-foot, Markram played shots all round the park. "It is nice to get the start we did get, and for Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers to prolong the partnership", he said. Read More »

He explained: "There is a saying in my country that says, 'Touch the land you want to conquer with the sole of your feet.' And here I want to make history with everyone". "Whether I am playing regularly or not, it's up to me to work hard and to learn as much as I can", Mina said. I was sat on the bench [on Friday] and he came over with [Luis] Suarez from training, it was really special when he came to welcome me - it made my hair stand on end. Read More »

Harry Kane equals Steven Gerrard's Player of the Month record

perth_map

A player the Toffees chief labelled - the best in Europe - at that price. Suddenly Tottenham looked risky every time they came forward, and they should have had a third five minutes later when Dele Alli exchanged passes with Son on his way into the box, only to fire his finish into the side-netting with only the keeper to beat.
