Tight at the Top – Australian Women’s Snatch Last Gasp Victory

first_imgRelated LinksWomen’s Match Report In a very tight tussle, it was Australia who somehow managed to keep their composure under fire and close out an amazing win considering they only hit the lead late in the second half. For coach, Swain Rovelli it was welcome relief and a good win first-up. “It was good to get that one over with and it’s good to get started with a good win.“We were ready to go but then we started to settle and once we got a read on what we had to do, we got on top and took it away from there.“Our changeovers were a bit slow and once we started going direct and once we nailed that, we knew that we could score tries and hold them out.“We knew what we needed to do and where to get to and thankfully Marikki’s try sealed it at the end for us.”New Zealand came firing out of the blocks early against Australia with Tenika Willison and Charlotte Davis crossing early for the Kiwis.The captains quickly got in on the act with Lizzie Campbell crossing the stripe in the middle section then New Zealand captain, Jean Marsh following Australia’s Hayley Maddick’s touchdown on debut.Tenika Willison went over for her double and was then followed by Samantha Hopkin on the spot of Campbell’s earlier touchdown.In the second half it was Mia Johnstone who then drew Australia level with New Zealand at 4-all with 13 minutes remaining.Shellie Davis put Australia in front for the first time in the match scoring her first Trans Tasman touchdown soon-after with Leah Percy pushing Australia out by two (6-4).The Kiwis’ Hayley Lee was the recipient of a great long ball left crossing out wide edging New Zealand closer before Charlotte Davis scored locking the game up at 6-all with minutes remaining.Then at the very death and following the script of the earlier Mixed Open match, Marikki Watego crossed right on full-time to deliver Australia a last gasp 7-6 victory and an opportunity to wrap the series up tomorrow.FINAL SCORE: Australia 7 (Campbell, Hopkin, Maddick, Johnstone, Percy, S Davis, Watego) defeated New Zealand 6 (C Davis 2, Willison 2, Marsh, Lee) last_img read more

Mourinho’s side have now conceded 29 goals this season in the league, one more than they did across the whole of last season. Asked if he believed the players are playing for him, Mourinho snapped: “What is that? Are you calling the players dishonest? You are asking me if they are dishonest.”I believe they are honest and you believe they are dishonest. A footballer has to give the maximum every day, every match, every minute, it doesn’t matter the manager, it doesn’t matter anything.”The club that pays him, the fans that are 24 hours per day in love with our club. It’s about respect for the club and the fans. The players that don’t do the maximum you are calling them dishonest. I don’t call them dishonest at all.” last_img read more

20 days agoLeicester boss Rodgers fumes: Mane made most of it

first_imgLeicester boss Rodgers fumes: Mane made most of itby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City boss Brendan Rodgers was furious with the way Sadio Mane won Liverpool’s matchwinning penalty on Saturday.Mane was brought down in stoppage time after a mix up between Albrighton and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before James Milner calmly slotted from 12 yards to give the hosts a huge victory that extends their winning run in the league to 17 games, dating back to March.Rodgers felt aggrieved by Chris Kavanagh’s decision to award the penalty kick, saying: “I think he has made the most of the contact.”Strikers now, they are clever. He has had a touch and gone over. If the referee didn’t give it I don’t think anyone would have said it was a clear and obvious error. “To concede a 95 minute penalty was difficult to take. I thought we deserved a point. You come to the European champions and you have to be resilient and deal with pressure and show your own qualities. I felt we did that.”I thought we could go on and win the game. We conceded a goal when we were in control. I thought it was a very soft penalty, not clear and obvious that is for sure but when the referee gives it it is hard for the VAR to go against it. “But I am very proud of the team and the personality we showed. To come here and be that competitive, it shows we are very much on the right path.”You have to have that [doggedness]. Any of the best teams always has a balance.”You come to a stadium that is one of the most difficult in Europe, in terms of momentum. We were able to turn the momentum around for us. “You have to have all types. Today we had to have that persistence and perseverance but when we had spells with the ball, we looked creative and we had a threat. “We looked like we could maybe get in front in the game. It wasn’t to be but I am proud of coming to here and bringing a team to compete at that level.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
