Press Association Luke Marshall has accepted full responsibility for Australia’s pivotal third try in Ireland’s 32-15 defeat on Saturday – and pledged not to repeat his mistake. The Ulster centre missed a first-up tackle on livewire Wallabies fly-half Quade Cooper in Ireland’s defensive line, gifting the visitors the try that effectively sealed victory. Frustrated by his error, Marshall quickly shouldered the blame but was also relieved to receive firm backing from head coach Joe Schmidt. “A couple of mistakes gave them soft tries; that fed their confidence and put us in problems. “It was pretty flat in the changing rooms, but I think we all knew when we were coming off the pitch that we should have done better.” New boss Schmidt refused to lambast four-cap Marshall for missing the routine tackle on Cooper that cost Ireland the first score of the second half. The former schoolteacher said: “Individual players still have a lot to learn. “When Cooper danced through, there are some things that need to be learned there, because we were really well matched-up. “But you cannot account for a guy who’s still really young and still learning, and I think that was pretty evident if you look at it again. “The best thing about that is that he’ll learn from it. The worst thing about it is that he’s learning from it in the Test arena, where everything counts. “Everything’s a final, you only get one shot at it and you’ve got to deliver it.” Marshall said: “I’ve just got to deal with it – this is the standard of rugby I want to be playing and when you make mistakes, sometimes you’ve just got to put your hand up and get on with it – and learn from it. “Joe (Schmidt) came over to me straight afterwards in the changing rooms, and said I just have to move on. “It’s Test rugby, it’s one of those things that happens: one mistake sometimes leads to a try. “But I appreciated him coming over, he did understand, and it’s nice to have that backing. “It’s given me a lot of confidence for him to give me that opportunity. The challenge of course is to take that forward now.” Marshall knows there is precious little time to dwell on Saturday’s comprehensive four-try Wallabies loss with a game against New Zealand looming on Sunday. “We can’t feel sorry for ourselves,” said the 22-year-old. “We’ve got to get through the video analysis, work hard this week and move on. It’s as big as it comes now this week.
He said: “With all respect, you cannot blame the president for this. Of course not. I have to blame myself, the players have to blame themselves and we have to find out if we can find a solution.” Norwich boss Alex Neil was thrilled with his side’s display on Wearside and in particular, with Hoolahan’s contribution. He said: “Wes was fantastic last year, and he’s been great. The older he’s got in the last couple of years, he’s really kept on as a player. “His experience and his quality that he’s got, and his ball control – technically, he’s a fantastic little player.” The only disappointment for the Scot was the late goal, although even that yielded a positive. He said: “We were probably arguing more about that after the game than losing last week, so I think it just shows how we go about our business and the standards we expect from each other, and that’s a positive thing.” Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat to Norwich proved even more soul-destroying than the 4-2 opening-day drubbing at Leicester, and left Advocaat desperately searching for a solution with the campaign threatening to unravel before it has begun in earnest. Asked if the performance has left him with more questions than answers, the 67-year-old Dutchman, who was due to sit down with his players for a frank exchange of views on Sunday, said: “A lot of questions. Press Association Shell-shocked Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat has described his team’s early-season form as “frightening” after seeing them succumb in pitiful fashion for the second successive week. “You can lose or lose, but the way we lose is frightening. We discussed it last week and if you see them training, they give everything and many players are playing at the top. But that is not enough. “The strength of our team in the last nine games (of last season) was that we played 4-3-3, everybody knew what to do, the players accepted their roles. “Now probably some players maybe think that they can do more, and they cannot do that. In that way, I have seen a lot and I don’t accept it any more.” There was little to choose between the sides until Black Cats goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon could only parry Robbie Brady’s 26th-minute shot and look on in horror as the ball cannoned off defender Russell Martin’s shins and into the net. It was a lead the visitors never looked like relinquishing and as the impressive Wes Hoolahan started to work his magic with full-back Patrick van Aanholt seemingly mesmerised by what was going on around him, they killed the game off in clinical fashion. The Republic of Ireland international provided the link for first full-back Steven Whittaker and winger Nathan Redmond to carve paths through the home defence and beat Pantilimon either side of the break to send the locals streaming towards the exits with more than half an hour still to play. Substitute Duncan Watmore provided a modicum of light relief two minutes from time when he marked his Barclays Premier League debut with a consolation strike, but it proved little comfort. Many home fans raised their voices in a chorus of “Are you watching, Ellis Short?”, exhorting the chairman to sanction significant spending in what remains of the summer transfer window, but Advocaat, who has been frustrated by the lack of recent movement on that front, absolved the Texan of responsibility on that front.

September 15, 2020 Fangio: I blew it by not calling timeout in latest loss Associated Press Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditDENVER (AP) — Questionable play-calling. Debatable clock management. A rash of rookie mistakes. A barrage of injuries. It all added up to another last-minute loss for the Denver Broncos.Sure sounds familiar.The Broncos have surrendered the lead in the final 30 seconds six times in Vic Fangio’s 17 games as their head coach and they’ve lost four of them. “It was totally my fault there,” Fangio said Tuesday. “I had too much thought into what I was going to call next on defense. I missed it.”In previous years, the head coach would lean on Mitch Tanney, the Broncos’ former director of football analytics, for advice in these situations. The team parted ways with Tanney in the offseason and Fangio relies now on his offensive coaches for advice, although it’s unclear if any was offered Monday night.“All the coaches help chip in on that — the offensive coaches when we’re on defense and vice versa,” Fangio said. “It’s easier when we’re on offense because I’m not calling the plays. It was my miss on that one and nobody else’s.”So, the clock kept ticking and Gostkowski’s field goal left Denver just 17 seconds to get into Brandon McManus’ field-goal range.After Lock threw an 18-yard completion and Denver finally called timeout with 2 seconds left, Fangio briefly considered sending out McManus. Banking on the three-time Super Bowl winner missing a fifth kick, Fangio chose not to ice the kicker or spend his timeouts to save as much time as possible for his young offense to respond.“I didn’t think icing the kicker was worth it because he had been struggling anyway (but) I did miss a timeout there after the second-down play from the 29-yard line,” Fangio acknowledged a day later. When Titans running back Derrick Henry “got 13 yards down to our 16, I should have called timeout there,” Fangio said. “That was the one I missed.”Instead, precious seconds ticked away to the amazement and amusement of the Titans.Fangio, a longtime defensive coordinator, wasn’t thinking like a head coach. The latest one cut especially deep given all the blunders the Broncos had in their 16-14 loss to Tennessee on Monday night when Stephen Gostkowski atoned for four missed kicks by drilling a 25-yard field goal with 17 seconds left.The Broncos watched top draft pick Jerry Jeudy drop two crucial passes and top free agent Melvin Gordon gift-wrap a Tennessee touchdown on a night Phillip Lindsay (foot) and A.J. Bouye (shoulder) joined Von Miller (ankle) and Courtland Sutton (shoulder) as Week 1 casualties.New offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur’s debut was dismal: 3 total yards in the third quarter to Tennessee’s 105, and an ill-advised shovel pass from Drew Lock to Jake Butt on fourth-and-goal from the 1 that went for no gain.Unlike Titans tight end Jonnu Smith, who hauled in a scoring pass in the same scenario in the other end zone, Butt wasn’t across the goal line when he caught the pass and was stuffed at the line of scrimmage.The biggest beef with Broncos fans, none of whom were allowed into the stadium over coronavirus concerns, was Fangio’s head-scratching decision to hold onto his timeouts after the Titans crossed midfield at the two-minute warning while trailing 14-13. “Yeah, I was doing the math, but 75 (yards) seemed to be too far,” Fangio said, and Lock’s last heave hit the grass not far downfield.WHAT’S WORKINGLT Garett Bolles, criticized almost weekly last season, held his own against Jadeveon Clowney. WHAT NEEDS HELPThe rest of the offense, which couldn’t even top last year’s paltry 17-point average. In the red zone, Lock sorely missed his favorite target, Albert Okwuegbunam, who was inactive. The rookie tight end caught 17 TD passes from Lock in their two years together at Missouri. STOCK UPILB Alexander Johnson had a team-high 14 tackles and on Tuesday Fangio said Johnson’s personal foul penalty that negated rookie Michael Ojemudia’s first career interception was “a highly questionable ball.”STOCK DOWNShurmur, for the Broncos’ failure to score from the 1 and for not keeping TE Noah Fant going after he had five catches for 81 yards by halftime. He was shut out in the second half.INJURED Bouye (shoulder) and Lindsay (toe) went for MRIs Tuesday. OLB Bradley Chubb looked good in his return from a torn knee ligament. “He’s not where he was but he’s getting there and I think he’ll get there quickly,” Fangio said. KEY NUMBERJeudy’s two drops, including one at the 4-minute mark that might have salted this one away.NEXT STEPSFangio is hopeful Sutton can return this week. If Sutton gets back and Okwuegbunam works his way to the game-day active roster, Lock could settle in nicely against the Steelers. ___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL
MADRID, Spain (Reuters) – Atletico Madrid produced a typically spirited comeback from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Juventus in a thrilling finale to yesterday’s heavyweight Champions League Group D opener.Mexico midfielder Hector Herrera levelled in the 90th minute with a thumping header from a corner after defender Stefan Savic had pulled a goal back for the Spaniards in the 70th with a header from close range following a free kick.The Spaniards were the brighter side in the first half but Juve went ahead in the 48th minute when Juan Cuadrado sent an unstoppable curling shot into the top corner after a break engineered by a punt forward from defender Leonardo Bonucci.The Italian champions doubled their lead in the 65th minute following another quick counter as midfielder Blaise Matuidi headed home a cross from Alex Sandro. But with bullish coach Diego Simeone motivating them from the sidelines and a typically boisterous Wanda Metropolitano crowd roaring them on, Atletico refused to give in.Atletico and Juve have a point each while Lokomotiv Moscow top Group D after beating Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 away from home.“This game will do us a lot of good for the rest of the season, as it makes us believe in the character of the team,” Simeone told reporters. “We started well then they hit us twice and we were out of the game but we never caved in.”Juve’s Bonucci did not hide his disappointment at the fact his side could not see out the victory.“It’s a real shame to concede two goals from set plays. We had a great performance, but we’ve got to be more focussed, because this has happened too many times now,” he said.“Everyone has to be more concentrated. A side like ours cannot keep conceding this many goals from set plays.” Savic’s scrappy goal galvanised Atletico and moments later Spain forward Vitolo forced Juve keeper Wojciech Szczesny to make an acrobatic save.Atletico were denied a penalty when the ball hit the arm of Bonucci, with Diego Costa earning a yellow card for his loud protests at the decision.INSTANT HEROSubstitute Herrera made himself an instant hero 14 minutes into his competitive debut for the club by escaping his marker and heading home Kieran Trippier’s corner to spark jubilant scenes in the stands and around the Atletico dugout.“This team is renowned for suffering and fighting until the end. This result tastes better than most draws, of course we wanted to win but a draw is good given how tough Juventus are,” said Herrera, who joined Atleti from Porto in the close season.
Okagbare whose season is gradually gathering momentum to peak at the Rio2016 Games two days ago at the Sóstói Stadion in Budapest, Hungary ducked inside 11 seconds for the first time this 2016. The time was aided by a massive 2.6 metres per second tail wind which makes it illegal for record purposes.It no doubt is heartwarming to athletics officials in the country even though her season’s best remains the 11.02 seconds she ran in Sapele last week to win her seventh 100m title at the All Nigeria Athletics Championships.Double Commonwealth Games triple jump champion, Tosin Oke is Nigeria’s lone flag bearer at the London Meet.He is one of only 14 athletes that have hit and gone beyond 17.00m so far this season confirmed for the event at the event.A look at the schedule of the athletics events of the Rio2016 also showed Okagbare may be forced to choose between competing in either the long jump or 200m events to avoid a repetition of the stress that made her miss the podium at the 2013 IAAF World Championship in Moscow, Russia.Okagbare won a silver in the long jump event and failed to fulfill expectations in the blue ribband event, finishing sixth (11.04 seconds) in the 100m final.She is listed by the Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN) for three individual events and the 4x100m relays at the Games.But the timetable of Rio2016 revealed that both the long jump and 200m events will start on the same day.The 200m semi-final and the qualification jumps for the long jump final will both come up on the evening of August 16 (Day 5 of the athletics events) while the finals for both events will be held the next evening, August 17.Meanwhile, Stephen Mozia on Monday in Andújar, a Spanish municipality in the province of Jaén, in Andalusia improved the national shot put record for the second time this year.Mozia, the Cornel University, USA Engineering graduate threw a distance of 20.82m, nine centimetre above the 20.73m record he set in Lexington, Kentucky, USA on May 7.The two-time Nigeria champion in the shot put came into national reckoning in 2014 when, as a student in the USA he broke Chima Ugwu’s 20.26m national record set on July 22, 2000 in Lagos.He first put a distance of 20.38m on May 29, 2014 in Jacksonville, Florida, USA before improving it to 20.46m on June 11.That same year he rewrote the national shot put indoor record with a throw of 20.79m and this year, January 30 to be precise in Nashville, Tennessee in the USA became the first Nigerian to hit the 21m mark when he improved his national record to 21.11mA former American junior international, Mozia changed allegiance to Nigeria in 2014, just in time for him to compete at the IAAF World Indoor Championships at the Sopot Arena in Poland where he failed to make the final.He returned to the World Indoor Championships arena this year at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, USA and ended up in 12th place.Last month he won a pair of bronze medals in the shot put and discus events at the 20th African Championships in Athletics in Durban, South Africa.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram * Mozia Sets New National Shot Put RecordNigeria’s sprint queen, Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor will be conspicuously absent when top athletes file out at this weekend’s money spinning London Diamond League.The provisional entry list of athletes for the meet released on Monday showed that Okagbare who ran her fastest ever 100m race of 10.79 at the meet to set a new continental record three years ago was missing.
Facebook Twitter Google+ After the post-game team meeting, Sydney Brackett turned toward the stands and put both fists in the air as Sheridan Street pranced around the field, smiling ear to ear.“Good game coach,” a woman yelled from the stands. SU head coach Phil Wheddon simply turned and nodded his head with a slight grin.Syracuse (7-1-1) took down Buffalo (3-3-2), 2-0, on Thursday night at SU Soccer Stadium, a result of controlling possession and outshooting the Bulls, 21-11, in the Orange’s final nonconference game of the season.Going with a small back line of only Jess Vigna and Taylor Bennett, Syracuse’s two center backs didn’t allow any of their opponents past them in the open field, as Buffalo generally got their only opportunities off of failed corner attempts.“The forwards are making runs, but we’re figuring out how to use the back ends to connect to the forwards,” freshman forward Sydney Brackett said. “The forwards are just the ones getting the credit.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe forwards are getting the credit because of their ability to dominate the possession in games, like the Orange did against the Bulls.The connections on the front end are what is allowing the Orange to be successful. On Friday, it proved to be the play of Eva Gordon and Brackett and their ability to create opportunities.“I think Eva and Syd have started to recognize each other’s tendencies,” Wheddon said. “It takes time to grow as a unit and I think the two of them, in particular, work really well together.”In the seventh minute a through-ball from Street left Brackett one-on-one against Buffalo goalkeeper Laura Dougall on a breakaway, but she narrowly rolled the ball wide left.The freshman hung her head in disappointment and retreated on defense, something she did several more times throughout the game. Despite generating five shots and adding an assist, Brackett was visibly upset over her failure to score.“I just told her just be patient,” Wheddon said. “It will come. She’s going to be a prolific scorer for us.”After Brackett’s breakaway miscue in the seventh minute, the Orange didn’t have another chance until the 49th. The freshman forward launched a shot high as Dougall went to collapse on the ball. It deflected off her hands and shot straight backward, but Buffalo defenders were there to clear the ball just before it crossed the plane.Despite failing to score, Syracuse had been thriving in the midfield and controlling the possession and flow of the game.SU finally generated a goal in the 63rd minute when Brackett spread the pitch on a breakaway and send a rolling cross into the box as both Opal Curless and Street were crashing. Curless received the pass and sent a shot on goal that was deflected, but Street positioned herself for the rebound and put the ball in the back of the net.“Two people crashed the box. I aimed for Opal,” Brackett said, “but we practice dummies and Opal did a great dummy, so it went to Sheridan.”The game was stagnant until the closing moments when Buffalo launched three shots in the final minute — one hit SU goalie Courtney Brosnan in the face.Vigna cleared the ball, which led to an Alana O’Neill breakaway that left her wide open as she sent a lob over the outstretched hands of Dougall to put the Orange up by two as time expired.“We made mistakes tonight and didn’t get punished. Going into the ACC though, you get punished for those mistakes,” Wheddon said. “We just have to clean it up around the box and play better defensively.” Comments Published on September 15, 2016 at 11:47 pm Contact Matt: email@example.com
