ARLINGTON, Texas -- Right-hander Yu Darvish was a spectator last year when the Texas Rangers lost to the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League Division Series. Air Max 95 Black Clearance .Darvish missed the entire 2015 season while he was recovering from Tommy John surgery. Now Darvish is all the way back and hoping to help the Rangers win their first World Series title.Hell have a chance to help Friday when he starts a pivotal Game 2 of the ALDS against the Jays and 20-game winner J.A. Happ. After Thursdays 10-1 loss the Rangers are now 1-10 in ALDS history in games at Globe Life Park.They desperately need a strong outing from Darvish to turn the series around and avoid going to Toronto down 0-2. Darvish, who went 7-5 in the regular season, is eager to pitch in his first playoff game since he got the nod for Texas in the wild-card game in 2013.Last year I couldnt pitch, Darvish said. I wanted to pitch but I couldnt. And this year Im physically healthy and Im ready. I can pitch in the game. So Im happy about that.The Rangers need Darvish to pitch like his did to end the season. Over his final two starts, Darvish allowed just one earned run in 13 innings. He gave up five hits and struck out 21.The last few years Ive been working on my command, Darvish said. Maybe I was overthinking it. I was thinking too much about commanding my stuff. And then I was able to fix those mental adjustments and just a few minor mechanical changes on those days that I was able to work on. And Im in a good place right now.While Darvish has been considered an ace since he joined the Rangers in 2012, hes never had a 20-win season like Happ did this year for the Blue Jays. Happ went 20-4 for Toronto, reaching the 20-win mark for the first time in his career.Hes a key reason Toronto made the postseason, and now hell be pitching in the postseason for the first time since he was pitching for Philadelphia in 2009.He spent three years with Toronto from 2012-2014 but had nowhere near the success hes had this year. He won a total of 19 games in his first stint.He kind of reinvented himself, Toronto manager John Gibbons said. He was always considered kind of a power pitcher, a lot of strikeouts, throw a lot of pitches, five innings, 100-plus pitches was nothing to him. Thats just the way he worked. Hes a control guy now. And hes got some power behind it too.This version of Happ faced the Rangers earlier this year and was dominant, giving up one run on six hits in a victory. He doesnt plan on changing up his game plan for Texas on Friday either.I think the biggest thing is to keep my mentality the same and thats to be aggressive, Happ said. I think youre always searching for maybe tinkering with a few things to make certain pitches a little better or maybe trying to come up a new pitch that can work for you. But keep that same aggressive mentality, and I think that will be huge for me going forward. Wholesale Air Max 95 Mens .

AFC Wimbledon v Portsmouth, Monday, Sky Sports 1 HD, 12.45pmI cant wait to watch this one, and Ill think there will be goals. Neal Ardley is doing a brilliant job at Wimbledon, and theyve got a super spirit. They are nicely placed at the moment, four points off the play-offs, and they could do with beating Pompey to keep things going, but I dont think they will. Kingsmeadow is a tough place to go, and I think Portsmouth will be happy with a draw. OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 9/2)Millwall v Burton Albion, Monday, Sky Sports 1 HD, 7.45pmBurton could be about to have a funny little blip.

Jeet Ravals match-aggregate of 91 in a low-scorer has made him a possible solution to New Zealands opening woes, but he is a player that had piqued the selectors interest for some time, coach Mike Hesson said. Cheap Puma Shoes China . One of the steadier hands in domestic cricket, Raval has averaged less than 40 in only one of the past eight first-class seasons. A correct batsman who favours the leg-side, Raval was an assured presence on debut, both with bat in hand, and in the slip cordon.For Jeet to make his debut in conditions like this where hes performed in over the last few years, was great, Hesson said. I thought his decision-making throughout was exceptional, especially around whether to leave or to defend. He stuck to his game plan - hes very disciplined and knows what that is. He was challenged over, and around the wicket. He was tested with short balls and swing. He stood up to all of them. I thought against Yasir Shah he showed he could come down the wicket, pick off his pads, and lap. He never went outside his plan even when he was challenged, which is a great sign.New Zealands other debutant, Colin de Grandhomme, had also been in the selectors sights for years. He earned his place in the Test squad after hitting a 144 not out off 147 balls, in an extraordinary chase of 373 in a first-class match, on November 1.Colin has been a talented player for a long time, but weve sort of been waiting for something to click - for him to show that hes worked out how to play at first-class level first, Hesson said. In the last six months weve seen some good signs of that, with bat and ball. It was just a matter of time really, whether it be short-form or long-form. He needed to work out his own game plan. People do mature at different stages. In this instance Colin is probably slightly a late maturer, but hes got plenty of years left in him.Though de Grandhomme himself admitted batting was his foremost suit, it was with the ball that he made the biggest impression, taking 7 for 64 in the Test, and sparking Pakistans second-day collapse which allowed New Zealand to take control of the match. New Zealand had a more experienced allrounder in James Neesham in their squad, but had surprisingly opted for de Grandhomme instead.No one thought Colin was playing a couple of days out, Hesson said. But he was presented with a surface that suited his skill set. Hes been doing that in first class cricket for years, on that type of wicket. Weve got scouts and selectors all around the country who watch a lot of cricket.The teams now head to Hamilton, where New Zealand have the opportunity to defeat Pakistan in a Test series for the first time since 1985 - though, said Hesson, the chance to alter that particular record doesnt necessarily motivate his side.Weve had a lot of series recently where if you do this, or if you do that, you could create something. Well wait and see. Weve got to enjoy the last three days which have been an incredibly good performance. Well enjoy and suck that up for a little bit. When we get to Hamilton well think about Hamilton.Both teams are scheduled to travel on Tuesday. Wholesale China Shoes .

It was Kerbers third final of the year after losing to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in Monterrey in April and to Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in Tokyo two weeks ago. The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. It is a crazy year with a crazy finish, and if it happens, this could top it all. Melbourne could play finals, even though it does not deserve to.The Demons are not even ready, although they are growing, but it is the frailty of North Melbourne that has opened the door for them.It was way back at the end of Round 6, at the end of April, that the current top eight first settled as it sits now, and it has not changed since, a remarkable statistic in itself and virtually unprecedented in the AFL.A month ago, observers were saying that it would not change, either, but if results fall a certain way this weekend, Round 23 could end up being a grandstand finish, especially for Melbourne fans.Melbourne needs to win both games, against Carlton this weekend and then at Geelong in the final round, to bridge the two-win gap to eighth-placed North Melbourne. Paul Roos men, of course, needs North Melbourne to lose both matches as well, against Sydney in Hobart this week and Greater Western Sydney in the final round.Percentage would then decide eighth place. At the moment, the gap is 3.7 percent, which equates to about 10 goals, a quite manageable number.That North could win nine consecutive games to start the season yet potentially lose its place in the finals is an indictment on the Roos. Certainly they have had injuries to key players, notably Shaun Higgins and Jarrad Waite, but it suggests that the streak at the start of the year was something of a mirage.Right now, North is 3-8 since that first nine rounds, has lost the last two in a row and could quite possibly limp into the finals on a streak of four straight defeats. Again, this would be close to unprecedented.That Brent Boomer Harvey could escape his whack at Sam Mitchell at the MCG last week with a fine ssuggests the match review panel might have taken pity on Brad Scotts team. Discount Shoes China. They have been witheringly poor since the first two months of the season, and Harvey should have been suspended, for sure.As for the Dees, they are headed into a bright, new future without Roos, who did a sensational job of rebuilding the team and who will walk off into his own future leaving Simon Goodwin all the glory of a burgeoning list. Roos focused on culture while his list management team did their own work, and he has shown what a great coach he is.He is a holistic coach who fosters strong leadership among the playing group then allows them to take ownership of discipline, leaving him to set the playing style.His mantra is defence-first and this was the building block for Melbourne, as he said all along. This season in adding an attacking edge the Demons have jumped to 10th in scoring (compared to 16th in 2015), and their ball movement is quick and exciting at times. A 10-10 win-loss record is the result, including a groundbreaking win over Hawthorn a couple of weeks ago as the stand-out.Still, Melbourne is only 2-5 against top eight teams, which shows that there is still a gap.As much as it will set the football world alight if the Demons can pull off two wins to reach the finals, it might not even be the best thing for the club. Potentially, a finals appearance and a quick exit could lure the players and coaching staff into thinking that more ground has been made than is actually the case.A near-miss, on the other hand, might just drive Melbourne forward again in 2017. Whichever way it falls, Melbourne is a stock worth buying. ' ' '
BELLEFONTE, Pa. Jamal Adams Jersey Authentic . -- Former Penn State President Graham Spanier testified Thursday that he issued a statement the day two of his top lieutenants were charged in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal, calling the allegations against them groundless, because he had developed deep trust in them.Spanier took the witness stand in former assistant coach Mike McQuearys lawsuit against the university. McQuearys lawsuit alleges the former presidents statement made it appear McQueary was a liar.Spanier said he came to trust vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley after working closely with them for years.This was an unbelievable injustice, that these two guys, who are like Boy Scouts, would be charged with a crime, Spanier said. And thats what was in my head as I was giving this opinion.Spanier began drafting the statement about a week earlier. He said thats when the universitys then-general counsel got a tip through the attorney generals office that Sandusky, Curley and Schultz would be charged.At issue was how Curley and Schultz responded after McQueary described to them in 2001 that he saw Sandusky sexually abuse a boy in a team shower.Spanier told jurors he directed the lawyer to share a draft with Curleys lawyer as a courtesy before it was published.Two of the people holding among the most important leadership positions in the university were going to be charged, Spanier said. And with my belief that after working daily with these individuals for about 16 years, and knowing their honesty, their integrity, believing that they never withheld information from me, and recollecting rather clearly that meeting from 2001 ... and what they described to me at the time, that it merited my unconditional support.Spanier was forced out by the board of trustees a few days later, and the next year he also was charged over his handling of the Sandusky matter. A state appeals court this year threw out several of the charges against all three administrators, but they remain accused of failure to properly report suspected abuse and endangering the welfare of children. They await trial in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.Spanier, who remains a Penn State faculty member, testified he had no knowledge of a 1998 police investigation into Sandusky showering with another boy on campus and had limited recollection of responding with Curley and Schultz to the 2001 incident McQueary said he witnessed.When the first set of charges was announced in November 2011, Spanier said he took the draft statement that day to about 30 of the universitys senior executives. He said he told them that if they were falsely accused of a crime, he would issue the same type of statement on their behalf.Everybody in the room worked with them for years and had exactly the same sentiment I had, Spanier testified.He said he wasnt thinking about McQueary when drafting the statement and didnt realize McQueary was a key figure in the investigation and an unnamed assistant described in the grand jury presentment used to help charge Sandusky.I was not casting aspersions on anybody else, because when that statement was drafted, I hadnt read the grand jury presentment, Spanier testified. My entire knowledge base was from a short conversation a decade earlier, and my focus was on these two individuals who I knew and worked with.McQuearys defamation, whistleblower and misrepresentation lawsuit is seeking more than $4 million in lost wages. The trial is expected to continue into next week.Sandusky was convicted of dozens of counts of child sexual abuse in 2012 and is serving a lengthy prison sentence but maintains hes innocent. Sam Darnold Jets Jersey .

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers dont think coach Mike Tomlin needs to explain himself whenever his gut tells him to bail on convention.If Tomlin wants to go for it -- whether it be a 2-point conversion, an iffy fourth down or a touchdown instead of a chip shot field goal, a choice he made three times at the end of the first half in Sundays 24-9 victory over Cleveland -- thats totally fine by the Steelers. Last they checked, getting into the end zone is what theyre paid to do.It was awesome, man, center Maurkice Pouncey said. I love it. Get some points, man.Something the Steelers did -- eventually -- during an eyebrow-raising sequence that began with the ball at the Cleveland 3 and 5 seconds left in the second quarter. Leading 6-0, a Chris Boswell field goal would have made it a two-score game. Even though Pittsburgh was scheduled to receive the second-half kickoff, Tomlin kept Ben Roethlisberger and the offense on the field.Two incompletions, two Cleveland penalties, a churning 1-yard touchdown run by LeVeon Bell and a 2-point toss to David Johnson later, Pittsburgh led 14-0. It was halfway to ending a four-game losing streak.Just like Tomlin drew it up, right?We need to score points, Pouncey said. (Kicking field goals) never wins. You get a whole bunch of field goals, we been in that situation before.Tomlin insisted there was no ulterior motive for repeatedly trying to get six, and eventually eight, though the timing was auspicious. The Steelers went 0 for 4 in 2-point conversions in a narrow 35-30 loss to Dallas the week before.The message is that we wanted to score, because scoring produces wins, Tomlin said on Monday. And were always generally aggressive in that area of the field.Pittsburgh (5-5) could afford to gamble more than usual against the woeful Browns (0-11) while winning on the road for just the second time this season. A more difficult test awaits on Thanksgiving night in Indianapolis. Drumming the NFLs worst team a short two-hour bus ride from home is one thing. Trying to rein in Andrew Luck and have enough fresh bodies to do it barely 96 hours later is another. The key iss trying to maximize every second of down time in between. New York Jets Jersey Sale. Honestly I dont like the Thursday games, Pouncey said. Short preparation, the body gets short rest, and as a lineman, we go out there 71 plays (against Cleveland). Every play I touched somebody, trust and believe that.The Steelers havent exactly thrived on short rest recently. Theyve dropped four straight on Thursdays, including a Thanksgiving night loss in Baltimore in 2013 that included Tomlin nearly colliding with Ravens returner Jacoby Jones during a long runback.Pittsburgh went through its usual Monday routine, which includes a series of sprints on the practice field. There will be minimal contact on Tuesday and Wednesday before hopping the plane to Indianapolis. The Steelers hope the sense of urgency and the adrenaline it brings will overcome any lingering aches.Were playing to stay alive, offensive guard Ramon Foster said. Us coming up short on a Thursday? Theres no excuse.The time to get it going is now. Its why Tomlin wasnt particularly surprised when he headed to the team cafeteria for a cup of coffee early Monday and heard music coming from the training room. He popped his head inside and found linebacker James Harrison going through a series of Instragram-worthy workouts just hours removed from becoming the franchises all-time sack leader .On a short week, hes in there doing what he does, Tomlin said. Theres a lot to learn from a guy who approaches his business in the manner he does. And I know our guys recognize that.A little bit of familiarity with the Colts should help. Pittsburgh has thumped Indianapolis each of the last two seasons by a combined score of 96-44, though Luck did not play in last years 45-10 whipping due to injury.Game notes Its unlikely WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) or RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) return this week. ... S Jordan Dangerfield (groin) and TE Xavier Grimble are questionable.---For more NFL coverage: and ' ' '
SANTA CLARA, Calif. Buy Nike Blazer Mid . -- San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly wouldnt commit to starting Blaine Gabbert new week against Buffalo after a fourth straight loss.Kelly said Friday the entire offense is on notice after sputtering Thursday night in a 33-21 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals.I dont have any answers for anybody, Kelly said. I dont know whos going to start against Buffalo. Our entire offense didnt play well. So, we need to get something straightened out offensively.The 49ers are 1-4 and last in the NFC West. Gabbert dropped to 9-31 as a starter, and San Francisco has the NFLs last-ranked passing offense.Gabbert threw two interceptions on his own side of the field that led to 10 Arizona points. The Cardinals took advantage of the first to tie it at 7 late in the first half on Larry Fitzgeralds 21-yard touchdown catch.Its extremely frustrating, Gabbert said after the game. I let this team and this organization down tonight and did not play good whatsoever and thats on me. I had two crucial turnovers there that led to points for the Cardinals and that was the difference in the game right there. I got to do a better job protecting the football and leading this team to scoring more points and winning games.Kelly said he will use the time off over the weekend to evaluate his entire offense, which could mean considering a promotion for backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who missed the bulk of the offseason program recovering from three surgeries on his left-shoulder, right thumb and left knee.Hes continuing to work, continuing to get stronger, continuing to get better, Kelly said.The 49ers allowed seven sacks Thursday including a late safety. Gabbert completed 18 of 31 for 162 yards with a touchdown pass and scoring run. He had a 56.1 passer rating.A bright spot for San Francisco was receiver Jeremy Kerley, who was acquired in a trade with Detroit for offensive lineman Brandon Thomas on Aug. 29. Kerley is the 49ers leading receiver with 26 catches for 304 yards and two touchdowns, both coming in the last two weeks.San Francisco added Kerley after receiver and returner Bruce Ellington was lost for the season with a hamstring injury. Gabbert connected with Kerley on eight of his 18 completions, including five of eight for 75 yards in the first half.Hes a dynamic player, Kelly said. I think the first thing when you notice Kerls is he can get in and out of cuts very quick. Hes sudden in terms of what he does. He can make people miss. Hes got real good short-area quickness and hes got outstanding hands. I think hes, Blaine seems to find a comfort level with him.Game notes Kelly said hes hopeful DT DeForest Buckner can return next week after missing Thursday with a foot injury. ... CB Chris Davis left the game in the second half with a knee injury and LB Tank Carradine left with a toe injury. Both were scheduled for MRIs Friday, Kelly said. ... LB Aaron Lynch made his season debut Thursday after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. Kelly said: It was good to have him back. It gave us added depth. So, well see how he continues to grow. Cheap Nike Blazer Mid Premium .

MADISON, Wis. Custom Jerseys Sale . -- Wisconsin coach Greg Gard says what makes Nigel Hayes and the Badgers play at their best is one in the same -- how far the 6-foot-8 forward is from the basket.And with Hayes working largely from 18 feet and in, he scored a season-high 28 points Saturday as No. 17 Wisconsin shook off a slow start and blew past Oklahoma 90-70.The further he gets from the basket, the more the hard match-up scenarios level off or dissipate, Gard said.Gard said what impressed him most about Hayes was he shot 13 free throws, hitting 10, and didnt turn the ball over once while dishing out six assists. Most of those assists were at the rim as the defense collapsed, opening up outside shots.Hayes said hes just taking what the defense gives him.Its just a matter of me staying consistent, staying confident in myself with the work I put in, whether its inside or outside, just going with that mindset that no one can guard me, said Hayes, who took only two 3-point attempts and made both.The Badgers (7-2) trailed Oklahoma (5-2) the entire first half as they struggled to guard dribble handoffs that gave the Sooners momentum while attacking the rim. But once the Badgers cleaned that up and found their shooting touch, they pulled away.Wisconsin was 4 of 13 from behind the arc in the first half, and Rashard Odomes put Oklahoma up 58-57 with a 12-footer 8 minutes into the second half. But Bronson Koenig of the Badgers answered with a 3 that started a 20-3 run to put the game away.The Badgers connected on 8 of 14 3-point attempts in the second half, including three in their decisive run.Koenig, Ethan Happ and DMitrik Trice all scored 16 points for Wisconsin.Oklahoma committed 16 turnovers, eight in each half. But the Sooners were able to overcome that in the first half by hitting 5 of 8 from behind the 3-point line. Those shots stopped falling in the second half as they went 1 of 6, and coach Lon Kruger said the Sooners didnt find a way to answer as Wisconsins confidence shot up in their final run.Odomes led Oklahoma with 17 points.Some of it was certainly our doing. Some of it was Wisconsin making a good play, Kruger said of the 20-3 run. Those opportunities are what we have to learn from and certainly do a better job.BIG PICTUREOklahoma: It was the first true road game and first against a ranked opponent for a squad that has 11 underclassmen on the roster. But the Sooners didnt come out intimidated and built an eight-point lead in the first half. Still, they contributed to that decisive Wisconsin run with six turnovers over the 5-minute run. They havent beaten a ranked non-conference team in a true road game since 1989.Wisconsin: When the Badgers have an inside and outside game working together, they can put on a display. Struggling from outside in the first half, they were outscored 40-37. Hitting from the 3-point line, they outscored Oklahoma 53-30 in the second half.FALSE ALARMMidway through the first half, the Kohl Centers firm alarm went off, triggering a recorded message there was an abnormal condition in the building and urging everyone to exit. The game continued with the alarm still going off, including as Hayes went to the free throw line and hit 1 of 2. The alarm eventually stopped, and the public address announcer said there was no emergency in the building.POLL IMPLICATIONSThats consecutive wins for Wisconsin over teams from Power Five conferences, which should provide a boost to the Badgers, who dropped a spot in the poll last week after losing to North Carolina 71-56 in Hawaii.UP NEXTOklahoma: On Wednesday, the Sooners host Oral Roberts, who they have beaten 14 straight times.Wisconsin: The Badgers host Idaho State on Wednesday.---More AP college basketball: and Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys Free Shipping .

But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. Ben Stokes hailed the most mature performance of his career to date after saving England from a precarious position against Bangladesh in Chittagong.Coming to the crease with his side in trouble and the ball spinning sharply, Stokes responded with a mature innings of 85 to help England establish a lead of 273 with two wickets in hand going into the fourth day. On a pitch that continues to provide assistance to spin bowlers, that may already prove a decisive advantage.While Stokes innings lacked, for the most part, the fireworks of some of his previous Test performances, it was played in unusually demanding circumstances. In ferociously hot and humid conditions and with his colleagues struggling to negate the turning ball, Stokes showed that he had matured significantly as a batsman.Instead of being content with batting for 20 minutes and then losing concentration he defended skilfully, rotated the strike and provided the substantial contribution his side required. It is currently the only half-century in the England innings and the highest score of the match.That was definitely my most mature performance with the bat in Test cricket, Stokes said. They were probably the toughest conditions Ive had so far in international cricket - especially going in with all the men around the bat and the ball spinning as much as it was.My defensive game against spin has gone up another level. Thats from working hard. Im making sure I dont fall into the trap of batting for 20 minutes and then losing concentration on what Im actually trying to do.We can all hit boundaries, but the hardest thing to do is defend when you first come in. I didnt want to give my wicket away and made sure if I was going to get out it was going to take a good ball.I knew that if we kept rotating the strike the game was going to get easier. There was so much time left in the game that it was just a matter of occupying the crease, rotating the strike and putting the bad balls away. The guys around the bat would soon disappear.The longer you spend on wickets liike that, the easier it becomes. Custom Baseball Jerseys Outlet. If we can get through the tough periods - and there are going to be plenty here and in India - then the easier its going to get. I tried to put the foot on the gas towards the end to try and get the lead up as high as we could but Im happy with how it went.Stokes had already produced an outstanding spell of bowling to polish off the Bangladesh innings. Gaining pace, bounce and reverse-swing that has been absent for every other bowler in the match, Stokes bowled six overs on the trot at the start of the morning session - an outstanding effort in such uncomfortable heat - claiming three wickets for nine runs.While other seamers could barely get the ball about hip height or move it off the straight, he struck batsmen on the helmet and nipped the ball both ways. That brought him 4 for 10 in a 10-over spell continued from the previous day that saw Bangladesh collapse from 221 for 4 to 248 all out.Afterwards he credited Joe Root, in particular, for looking after the ball and ensuring it was in a condition where it would reverse.Reverse swing is a massive weapon for us in the sub-continent, Stokes said. It can be quite tough to control how much the ball is going to swing. But weve been working a lot on reverse. We were very critical about keeping the ball in good nick. Joe Root has been non-stop in keeping the smooth side smooth and shiny and making sure the other side is as dry as possible.Its tough to tell the spinners to keep their hands off with the amount of bowling they are doing, but they did a really good job.Its actually very tough to maintain the ball because one little bit of moisture on the side that we keep dry can almost put you back two overs to where you started off. We all know that and we try to keep as few hands on the ball as possible. We did that and thats how we managed to get as much sideways movement as we did with the old ball. ' ' '
JARAGUA DO SUL, Brazil -- Vitor Belfort delivered one of the most spectacular knockouts of his career on Saturday, beating Luke Rockhold in the first round of the main event of "UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Black Swell Bottle .

England scrum-half Ben Youngs says cutting out chocolate and Eddie Jones regime of tough love have been key to his impressive run of form.Jones singled out Youngs and Courtney Lawes as his players of the autumn series with the Leicester No.9 now Englands first-choice scrum-half. Youngs was crowned Man of the Match for his role in Englands 37-21 win over Australia on Saturday with the award testament to his off-field work.The England coach is renowned for doing things a little differently when it comes to putting his point across. With Youngs he delivered an abrupt message to the scrum-half when he first took on the job with Leicester coach Richard Cockerill revealing the No.9 was told, bluntly: Youre too fat not sharp enough.Jones chucked a bag of sweets at Youngs to reinforce his point but the scrum-half responded by working harder than ever on his conditioning.When I turned up he said you need to be lighter, you need to be leaner, Youngs said. The way the game is going it is quicker and faster and he needed me to operate at a higher level than what I was operating at.When a coach tells you to lose a couple of kilos there could be a lot worse things to work on. Just cut down on portions and you are near enough there. We do that and he doesnt mind giving some banter to the boys.Youngs added: I am really enjoying my rugby and thats credit to, thats thanks to Eddie, I guess. Hes got this attacking framework, its enjoyable to play in, hes given this side belief, hes given individuals confidence -- and hes not letting me have any chocolate -- it seems to be working anyway, so well continue to do it. Swell Blue Marble Bottle. Jones said Youngs put his hand up for the British & Irish Lions scrum-half berth with his masterful performance against the Wallabies.The England coach said: He was really good -- I am glad he knocked back that bag of lollies -- it was a really good decision by him.Youngs now returns to Leicester. He says the schedule is relentless but it is something the England players have become accustomed to as they look to transfer international form on to the domestic scene before shifting attention to the Six Nations.When we next meet, weve got to make sure were turning up a better side than when we left, Youngs said. Thats the attitude and mindset of the side, and thats been driven from Eddie and other players have started to drive that, and its filtering all the way through to the 31.You look at the side and theres some guys that have been missing this whole tournament and other guys have stepped in. Obviously Billy [Vunipola] was a big loss for us - Nathan [Hughes] just grew in the game and got better and better, by the end of it looked like hed been out there for a number of years.Its a really exciting time to be a part of this England team.
