It doesn’t matter the result, but it’s very important for the players. Very important for the players that are going to play.”It’s very important for me to know them better. I am going to play for sure some of the players that are not playing with me in these matches we are playing.”It’s a great opportunity for young people. A great opportunity for the development of these young players, the Walker-Peters, the Skipps, the Parrotts, the Sessegnons, all these young players that we have, it’s a great opportunity for them.”Of course there is the prestige of the club also involved, and we are going to try to go with a team that gives us some guarantees to try to fight for a result that we don’t need, but a result that we want.Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raid”We know that tomorrow [against Burnley] is going to be the fifth game in a row, we know that after that we go to Wolves on the weekend, and Wolves is one of the teams that is in front of us in the table.”We have to look to this game, to Bayern, with all these in mind.”But if you want to look for the positive side of it, and not to the negative side, it is to say that lots of young players are going to have a good opportunity to play in an amazing stadium, amazing competition, against top players.”Jose Mourinho reveals he gave up the chance to go to Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr fight to lead Spurs out against Burnleylast_img read more

Storm back Munster for five-eighth switch

first_imgWith Billy Slater set to return from injury to reclaim the fullback role, Munster will be given first crack at the No.6 jersey vacated by Blake Green who signed with Manly.While his experience as playmaker is limited to junior football, the grand finalists believe the 22-year-old will be a natural.”He’s a very good athlete but he’s an out-and-out footballer and that’s why we’re very confident he’s going to make the transition,” Storm football manager Frank Ponissi said.”He’s certainly got all the attributes – he’s got terrific game sense, he’s very, very tough, resilient and he loves to be in the game which is everything you want about your ball-player at No.6.”When he was playing with Melbourne, South’s Test superstar Greg Inglis was converted from centre to a five-eighth during the 2007-08 seasons, although never really looked at home.He did however score two tries and win the Clive Churchill medal in the Storm’s 2007 grand final win over Manly.”It wasn’t Greg’s preferred position but when he needed to turn on one he could but they are a different type of player,” Ponissi said.He believed Munster would have an advantage over Inglis of having a far more experienced Cooper Cronk playing alongside him at halfback, while Slater playing at the back would also assist.”Cooper’s a different player now to what he was back then,” Ponissi said.”If you’re going to make your transition from fullback to No.6 at NRL level I couldn’t think of a better halfback to make it with as it will take an enormous amount of pressure off him.”Cronk such a dominant person and great communicator it will be like having a coach for Cameron on the field.”last_img read more

Kruis out of France clash

first_imgKruis, who had only been given the all-clear to face France last week after recovering from a fractured cheekbone, was forced to miss training on Tuesday with the knee injury.The Saracens lock will see a specialist on Thursday to determine further management of the injury and head coach Eddie Jones is not giving up hope he will be available later in the tournament.”We’ll have to wait and see what the specialist’s prognosis is, but we’re not ruling him out of the Six Nations at this stage,” said Jones.With Kruis ruled out, Courtney Lawes and Joe Launchbury are expected to reform the second row partnership that started against South Africa and Fiji during the autumn, with Maro Itoje starting at No 6.Speaking earlier on Wednesday, assistant coach Paul Gustard said he was confident England could cope if Kruis is absent.”We pride ourselves as a nation about the quality we have around the country,” he said. “As a coaching group from day one we were very excited about the talent we’ve got in English rugby at the moment.”We’re proving we can cope with people not being in the team and while there are people missing in this Six Nations there are also people returning and that’s also exciting. The likes of Maro Itoje and James Haskell coming back into the group is encouraging.”England are attempting to win back-to-back Six Nations titles for the first time since 2001. Should they repeat last year’s Grand Slam, they will surpass New Zealand’s record of 18 consecutive tier one Test victories.All 10 games of the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand will be shown live on Sky Sports, starting June 3 2017.last_img read more
