s streak in franchise history at 17 games.UP from corse178's blog

Steve Borthwick credits his accelerated coaching development to Eddie Jones as a place on Warren Gatlands British and Irish Lions staff beckons. http://www.cheapnikefreernuk.com/women-s-nike-free-4-0-v2-shoes-gray-orange.html .Borthwick is set to take charge of the forwards in New Zealand next summer and, although an appointment has yet to be finalised, Gatland has held talks with the England assistant coach.The 37-year-old ended his playing career at Saracens in 2014 and immediately took up a role with Jones in Tokyo, using his line-out expertise to help Japan record their finest World Cup performance including a shock upset of South Africa.When Jones was recruited by Twickenham last November, among his first steps was to prise Borthwick away from Bristol, and Englands pack have flourished under his guidance.Jones has already given his blessing to any of his lieutenants joining the Lions, and Borthwick insists it is down to the Australian that he is in the position to be considered.If Im asked the question by the Lions, it would be an honour to be asked and a privilege to do it, Borthwick said. I have definitely benefited from working under Eddie Jones, who has been phenomenal for me as a young coach developing.I have an awful lot to learn, but I feel very fortunate that Ive got a head coach like him and some excellent assistant coaches that I work with.Borthwicks promotion by the Lions would be welcomed by Mako Vunipola, his former Saracens team-mate and a tourist when the elite of British and Irish rugby crushed Australia in 2013.Steve was a great coach when he was still playing, Vunipola said. It was like having your forwards coach out there with you.It made it very easy for us as players and it is the same now that he is coach. That detail makes it very easy to understand.He picks up on anything. From my job as a lifter, you think you have a great lift but he will pick up on where your feet are positioned.Even the smallest things make a massive difference for him. He is all about getting the basics right first and the rest will come along with it.It is the way he trains, too. He is always bringing in new ways of making us better lifters, better jumpers.It was obvious he was going to be a great coach. He is a great leader and when he talks, people listen. That is not a bad trait to have as a coach. http://www.cheapnikefreernuk.com/men-s-women-s-nike-free-flyknit-running-shoes-red-fluorescein-green-blue.html . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. http://www.cheapnikefreernuk.com/men-s-women-s-nike-free-flyknit-running-shoes-black-white.html . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. http://www.cheapnikefreernuk.com/men-s-women-s-nike-free-run-2-shoes-bright-turquoise-orange.html .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. CHICAGO -- Madison Bumgarner facing Jake Arrieta had an October feel to it, and the San Francisco Giants performed like they belong in the postseason.Bumgarner outpitched Arrieta with 10 strikeouts over six innings, and San Francisco pounced on rare miscues by the Chicago Cubs in a 3-2 victory on Saturday.Bumgarner (14-8) allowed two runs and five hits in his fourth victory in his last five starts. San Francisco, trying to catch Los Angeles in the NL West, rebounded from a pair of one-run losses in the first two games of the four-game set against the major league leaders.Were going up against a team that, I dont think theyve clinched yet, but theyre going to be there, Bumgarner said. And were planning on being there. So its a playoff-type of matchup.The Giants had a major league-best 57-33 record at the All-Star break. But they are just 16-29 since that point, leaving them looking up at the Dodgers and clinging to the top spot in the wild-card race.It was one we definitely wanted and needed, catcher Buster Posey said. It was good to score some runs off Arrieta and then for our bullpen to hold the lead.Arrieta (16-6) was charged with three runs -- two earned -- and four hits in six innings in his first loss since July 30. Chicago had won five in a row overall.A little bad luck, a little missed execution, Arrieta said.The Cubs had one last chance when pinch hitter Anthony Rizzo led off the ninth with a walk against Will Smith. Rizzo advanced on a sacrifice by Dexter Fowler, but the big first baseman was caught off second on the play.Thats huge, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Heart of the order up, man on second, its a different game.Kris Bryant then hit a soft lineout to shortstop Brandon Crawford, handing Santiago Casilla his 30th save.Chicago also had an opportunity in the sixth, but Bumgarner struck out Matt Szczur for the third time with two on. Hunter Strickland got Addison Russell to line to right with the bases loaded in the seventh.The sputtering Giants had dropped three of four and eight of 12 overall.Right now as bad as it seems, were still in a better spot thhan we were in 2014, Bumgarner said of their last World Series title season. http://www.cheapnikefreernuk.com/men-s-nike-free-4-0-v3-anti-fur-shoes-red-black.html. Weve still got the division in our sights for sure.The Cubs entered with a 16?-game lead in the NL Central thanks to a number of tremendous defensive plays in the past week. But they were sloppy on a cloudless day with the wind blowing in as two of the games top pitchers squared off.Third baseman Tommy La Stellas two-out throwing error in the first made it 1-0. The Giants scored in the fourth with the help of a passed ball and added a run in the sixth on Arrietas second wild pitch.The Cubs got within 2-1 in the fifth thanks to Javier Baezs hustle. He led off with a single, stole second and scored from there when third baseman Eduardo Nunez was unable to barehand Arrietas slow roller.Angel Pagan doubled and scored on the error by La Stella, who was a late addition after Jorge Soler was scratched with an ingrown toenail. Soler hit for La Stella in the fifth and struck out with one on.The Giants took a 2-0 lead on Nunezs RBI single in a fourth that included a walk and wild pitch by Arrieta and Willson Contreras passed ball.Its not very common with our group of guys, Arrieta said of the mistakes. You dont expect to see those things often. We had opportunities regardless.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: Reliever Derek Law (elbow) hasnt begun throwing yet, but Bochy said they expect him to be at full strength when hes eligible to come off the disabled list Sept. 12.Cubs: Setup man Hector Rondon (triceps) threw a 22-pitch simulated game and felt good enough that his rehab stint at Triple-A Iowa was scrapped. Rondon could be activated Monday. Im back to normal, he said.STREAK OVERGiants 1B Brandon Belt dropped Ben Zobrists two-out popup in the first to stop the longest errorless streak in franchise history at 17 games.UP NEXTRHP Johnny Cueto (14-5, 2.98 ERA) looks to rebound from his shortest stint with the Giants when he faces Cubs RHP John Lackey (9-7, 3.41 ERA) on Sunday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
