After the Bears’ Jay Anderson reached on an error with one out in the top of the fifth, Anderson and Wiley combined to retire 13 straight batters until Anderson issued a free pass to Nathaniel Sagdahl in the seventh, the first walk by either pitcher up to that point. Anderson’s UCA counterpart, Tanner Wiley, suffered the loss despite giving up just two runs with five strikeouts of his own through six innings. Wiley was named to the all-tournament team for going 9-for-17 at the plate with seven RBI and four doubles. The Cowboys brought the score level with three-straight singles to lead off the home-half of the fourth, the third of which by Julian Gonzalez allowed Jake Dickerson to score. After Dustin Duhon bunted the runners over for the first out of the inning, Wiley retired the final two batters of the inning to escape the jam. The Bears got one back in the top of the eighth on a run-scoring single from Wiley to cut the Cowboy lead to 4-2. Following a leadoff double by Duhon, Connor Williams took over on the mound for Wiley and, after a Reid Bourque single, Duhon scored on a throwing error by Brasher to regain the lead at 2-1. McNeese put runners at second and third on a Fisbeck single and another fielding mishap, causing UCA to go to the pen again for Gavin Stone. Two pitches later, Clayton Rasbeary laced a two-run single past an outstretched Jay Anderson to push the lead to 4-1. Named the tournament MVP, McNeese pitcher Aidan Anderson tossed 3.2 innings of one-run baseball, allowing just one hit and striking out five Bears. The senior from Beaumont, Texas, finished with 12.2 innings pitched in the tournament after a complete game victory in the Cowboys’ first game against No. 4 Incarnate Word.

The 26-year-old made a big impact at the Rhinos after joining them, initially on loan, from NRL club Penrith in July, helping them win nine of their last 10 matches of the season to comfortably retain their Super League status.Segeyaro officially took up a two-year contract in September, removing a get-out clause at the same time, but has stated his desire to remain in Australia, where he is enjoying an extended off-season break.”I wouldn’t say I was pressured into taking up an option to re-sign with Leeds, but I certainly didn’t have the support network I lean on when I make key life decisions,” Segeyaro was quoted as saying by News Corp Australia.”I told them I can’t make the decision to take up the option without sitting down with my family.”But we had a deadline and I had to make a decision. That’s what I’ve explained to Gary throughout this period.””I want to get on with my life and unfortunately that doesn’t include going back to the UK. I just can’t do it.”But Hetherington has reiterated the club’s stance that Segeyaro, who has been heavily linked with a move to NRL premiers Cronulla, is not for sale.”The comments attributed to James have obviously come as a big disappointment and a surprise following my meeting with him and his manager Sam Ayoub last Wednesday,” said Hetherington.”When speculation first broke regarding Cronulla and their interest in James, I alerted both the RFL and NRL chief executives to the issue and the NRL confirmed a player cannot be registered with an NRL club whilst his registration sits with a Super League club, and in James’ case he is registered with us and the RFL until the end of 2018.”Interest in him from other NRL clubs has been reported but they know he is not for sale. However I have no doubt this has become a key issue.”The integrity of our game is now on the line and I hope to have further discussions with senior officials from the RFL and NRL at the earliest opportunity.”Segeyaro is due back at Headingley in early January ahead of the start of the Super League season the following month.
The Lions were 12-3 up when hooker Robbie Coetzee was sent off in the 31st minute for kneeing an opponent in the head at a ruck.

Flanker Kwagga Smith collected two tries and the Lions ultimately overran the Kings by eight tries to one for a bonus-point win.“To play with 14 men … is extremely tough but we showed some character,” Lions captain Warren Whiteley said. “We had to adjust a bit after halftime, being down to 14 men, but I think the guys switched on really well.”The Johannesburg-based Lions secured a 10th straight win and have an easier run home. They meet the lowly Sunwolves and the Sharks in their remaining games before the finals series, while the Crusaders have to face the Highlanders and the Hurricanes – the latter game is in Wellington against the defending champions.South Africa’s Super Rugby teams now have a month-long break to accommodate the June internationals.Lock Andries Ferreira and wing Courtnall Skosan put the Lions in control with early tries before Coetzee responded to a shoulder charge by Kings flanker Chris Cloete in a ruck by hitting him in the head with his knee. Coetzee saw red, and Cloete was yellow-carded.Smith raced away for his first try right at the end of the first half, when both teams were reduced to 14 men.Despite playing the entire second half with just 14 men, the Lions still attacked with zest, and often from deep inside their own half, scoring three more tries before the Kings could reply.Replacement hooker Malcolm Marx went over in a rolling maul at the start of the second half before the Lions turned on the style, with Smith starting a move that saw Ruan Dreyer set up fellow prop Jacques van Rooyen to score under the crossbar.Smith’s second started way down inside the team’s own 22 and capped a run of 28 unanswered points by the 14-man Lions.Against the run of play, Kings centre Luzuko Vulindlu intercepted for their only try of the game in the 60th minute.The Lions created two more tries, and kept going right to the end. Replacement prop Corne Fourie was twice involved in a breakout, eventually providing the final pass for scrumhalf Faf de Klerk to score. After the fulltime hooter, the Lions decided to attack from their own tryline, resulting in fullback Andries Coetzee going nearly 100m to score.

This Thursday the RFEF summoned the media to report a novelty about the Collective Agreement for women’s football in Spain, which takes months of fruitless negotiations. They explained their complaints about how they are agreeing to sign the Agreement, without the salary or adequate time.The Federation wanted to defend its position in this matter. He explained that so far he has offered four proposals that have been rejected. Although they assure that it is an issue that employers and unions have to solve. However, their great commitment to women’s football, to which they allocate more than 22.6 million euros, makes them very involved with the future of the players. More than the entire Basketball Federation.In the event held in the City of Soccer of Las Rozas were the general secretary of the RFEF, Andreu Camps, the vice president of the RFEF, Elvira Andrés, and the director of Women’s Soccer, Iñaki Mikeo.The proposal offered is the Elite Program, with three basic elements: the Spanish women’s teams first, second clubs and third, the players. “That they can be a worthy professionals,” Camps said. The RFEF established a minimum salary of 20,000 for the players of Primera Iberdrola and 12,000 for those of Challenge. “The Federation promised to pay the entire amount, since I was going to give each club 600,000 euros. Now a lower salary is being offered. We do not understand. That they do not have us if they do not have that minimum wage, if they do not have a minimum of one year of contract and if the agreement has a duration of five years. There will be no funding, “said Camps.“Everything has been pure screen. They have not allowed us to enter into negotiations. They must explain why it is signed for one year. We offered five.

I make it clear that it was thanks to the help of Mediapro, who in Another statement stated that “there was a meeting a few hours in which everything had been closed.” That is why from the Federation they wanted to explain their position, very far away …
Frank Lampard He arrived on the Stamford Bridge bench last summer with the possibility of signing reinforcements banned due to the punishment imposed by UEFA. This is why the former player blue was forced to make use of the quarry and trust the new batch of Chelsea footballers. Specifically, in three of them: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount. And it is precisely the latter who has landed in a better way in the elite.The very young 21-year-old midfielder packed just six to trade Portsmouth for London and enter the quarry blue. He served in the lower categories until the summer of 2017, at which time he was transferred to the Dutch Vitesse. His stay in the tulip country would last only one season, since in 2018 he returned to British lands leaving again on loan to Derby County, militant in the Championship, the English second division. In the summer of 2019, Lampard believed that it would be useful for his new project. I was right. Mason Mount has not only earned a fixed position based on numbers (six goals and four assists), but, until the break, it has curdled an enormous season. Despite his youth, he has managed to sit Barkley on the bench and become a regular at the Stamford Bridge team. It is no coincidence that more than one has fallen in love with their high level, including Leo Messi, the Barcelona star.The Argentine star assured, in an interview collected by Football London and Daily Mail, that the one from Portsmouth “It has the potential to be one of the best.” This is also contemplated by Gareth Southgate, England’s national coach, whose idea was that Mount would be part of the 23 selected to play in the Euro Cup. However, due to the postponement of the tournament until next year due to the coronavirus, everything has been left in the air. But Chelsea’s young promise will continue to fight to not lower the level, continue to be decisive for Lampard and earn a place in the English team next year.
It was not little, as was evident this Tuesday, when Goal gave him the 2020 NxGn award. The award, won in previous editions by Jadon Sancho or Justin Kluivert, crowned him as the best U19 in the world after a vote in which 43 journalists from around the world took part. Despite the bad and worrying situation, Rodrygo is doing well with the coronavirus. When the pandemic sent everyone to confine himself, the Brazilian was at his lowest in Madrid at the time, more protagonist in Castilla than in the first team, the scenario for which Zidane met with him. Now, this period of impassive It helps to measure what has been achieved in just a few months. Although perhaps the most interesting fact about Rodrygo, especially for the superstitious, is another: Neither Madrid nor Castilla have lost to him in eleven. With Zidane he has started 11 times, with 8 wins and 3 draws; with Raúl he has started 3 times, with 2 wins and 1 draw, and adding 2 goals. And with the aim of keeping that undefeated, he works at home for when everything returns to normal. 27 Scorer and amuletBehind the trophy are the numbers of a player who has managed to adapt to Europe. The Madrid shield, with which he has not weighed He has given two assists and of which he is his second highest scorer. He has scored 7 goals, the same as Ramos and 12 fewer than Benzema’s 19. And your average, somewhat every 144 minutes, outperforms both. Only Brahim (every 85) and Mariano (every 65) improve that average.
