THE KEY MEN IN SUNDAYS FOUR NATIONS FINAL BETWEEN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND AT ANFIELD (0130 AEDT MONDAY)JOHNATHAN THURSTON V SHAUN JOHNSONTwo of the finest playmakers in the games who are blessed with match-winning abilities. Thurston will be playing his last match on UK soil and is desperate to finish his fourth Kangaroos tour on a high. Johnson was almost the match-winner against against Australia at Coventry after being held up over the line in the final minute. Both players can expect special attention from two huge forward packs.CAMERON SMITH V ISSAC LUKESmith will play his 33rd straight Test, two behind Clive Churchills record of 35 in the list of most successive Australia appearances when he runs out in the green and gold for the 49th time at Anfield. Now aged 33, the skipper shows no signs of a decline in performances and is still the best dummy-half in the world. Luke had a below-par first year with the Warriors after leaving South Sydney, but has been back to his best in this tournament.JASON TAUMALOLO V BOYD CORDNERTaumalolo - the reigning joint Dally M Medal winner - will need to be at his rampaging best for the Kiwis if they are to win and will be a huge test for Australia up the middle. But in Cordner the Kangaroos have a special talent of their own, who is strong in defence, sharp in attack and a ferocious tackler with an eye for the tryline. Has shaken off a bout of gastro to be fit to play this final.

After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. Authentic Greg Senat Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Wholesale Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. Former Brisbane forward Brad Meyers is firmly behind his other old NRL club Gold Coast in Fridays elimination final at Suncorp Stadium.The former Queensland and Australian representatives heart lies clearly with the Titans despite making more than 100 first-grade appearances from 2001-04 for the Broncos.A foundation player when Gold Coast entered the competition in 2007, Meyers was a member of the last Titans team to reach the finals in 2010.The 36-year-old joined ex-Titans teammates Anthony Laffranchi, Mat Rogers, Preston Campbell, Clinton Toopi and Ash Harrison in a reunion on Wednesday at CBUS Super Stadium in the build-up to Fridays derby.Meyers says the bond forged in that time outweighs any lingering passions he holds for the Broncos.Its been too long for Brissie; Im leaning more towards the Titans in this one, Meyers told AAP.IIts always come down to the wire (between Titans and Broncos).dddddddddddd They dont have LockyTUKWILA, Wash. -- Sigi Schmid won an MLS Supporters Shield, four U.S. Open Cups, and never missed the playoffs as head coach of the Seattle Sounders. But the team and Schmid are parting ways.The Sounders announced Tuesday that Schmids run as the only coach in the franchises MLS era has come to an end. Longtime Seattle assistant Brian Schmetzer is taking over immediately as interim head coach.We agreed it was a reasonable time to part ways, Sounders majority owner Adrian Hanauer said during a news conference. That takes absolutely nothing away from what he has done for this club. He won a bunch of trophies for us, he won a lot of games, he had a lot of success. But the results just werent there this year.Schmid joined the Sounders in 2008 after winning an MLS Cup title with the Columbus Crew. He also won an MLS title with the LA Galaxy in 2002.I want to thank Seattle Sounders FC for the opportunity to lead this club over the past eight years, with particular gratitude to Adrian Hanauer, Joe Roth, and the rest of the clubs ownership group, Schmid said in a statement released by the team. My only disappointment is that we were unable to bring home an MLS Cup to our tremendous fans, who have always been supportive through good times and bad.Schmid was 115-79-56 with the Sounders and led them to seven consecutive MLS Cup playoff appearances, and his 228 regular-season wins rank first in league history. But Seattle has struggled this season, currently sitting in ninth place in the Western Conference with a 6-12-2 record. On Sunday, the Sounders lost 3-0 at Sporting Kansas City, and managed just one shot in the game.The results obviously have not been great, and the performance in Kansas City was maybe a low point, Hanauer said. Theres no magic stopwatch on this that tells us when the right time is.Schmetzer has been affiliated with the Sounders at various times as either a player or a coach since signing out of high school with the then-North American Soccer League franchise in 1980. Prior to their joining MLS in 2009, he was head coach of the USL Sounders from 2002-08, winning league championships in 2005 and 2007.Its kind of bittersweet, said Schmetzer, who was named Schmids top assistant in December 2008, just six days after Schmid was hired. You lose a guy you have a lot of respect for. But at the end of the day, its an opportunity to try to impart some pride back in the club and try to make sure we win games.Schmetzers first game in charge will be on Sunday when Seattle hosts the Galaxy. The Sounders will start that game 10 points out of the last Western Conference playoff spot.Weve not given up on making the playoffs, and help is on the way, general manager and president of soccer Garth Lagerway said. Were optimistic that we can change this thing positively and move forward this year.The help that Lagerway, Hanauer, and Schmetzer all mentioned was Nicolas Lodeiro. The native of Uruguay, an attacking midfielder, played most recently for Argentinas Boca Juniors club, and has 42 caps for the Uruguay national team.Its no secret, though its not necessarily the worst-kept secret weve had, but Nicolas landed at the airport today, Hanauer said. We have some is to dot and some ts to cross, but we fully anticipate him joining our squad.

The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. http://www.cheapairjordan3.net/ . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night.

Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. BOSTON -- David Price is finally pitching like the $217 million man the Boston Red Sox gambled he would be, but he has yet to turn the page against the New York Yankees.Price, who is 1-2 with a 7.79 ERA in three starts against the Yankees this year, hopes to do just that when the Red Sox host the Yankees in the third game of a four-game series Saturday.Boston (83-64) maintained its two-game lead in the American League East with a 7-4 victory over New York on Friday.The Yankees (77-70), meanwhile, dropped six games back in the AL East and are slipping further behind Baltimore and Toronto in the battle for the two AL wild-card spots.Its frustrating, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Weve got to start winning games. Thats the bottom line. Its got to start (Saturday). We know were seeing a good pitcher, but its got to start tomorrow.Aside from his struggles against New York, Price has been virtually untouchable as of late. The former American League Cy Young Award winner is 7-0 with a 2.16 ERA in his last seven starts.Youve got an elite performer whos in a run of starts that might be one of the best of his career, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. David Price on the mound for us is a good day.That hasnt always been the case, as Price (16-8, 3.81 ERA) has had an up-and-down first season in Boston.In Prices last outing against the Yankees, he gave up only three runs but was shellacked for 11 hits and a walk while registering just one strikeout in a 5 2/3-inning defeat.Overall, Price is 14-9 with a 4.35 ERA in 34 games (33 starts) against New York.Mark Teixeira has been one of Prices toughest customers, with three home runs and nine RBI against him, despite hitting just .214 (15-for-70) against the southpaw.Teixeira returned to the lineup Friday after missing two games with a neck ailment, going 1-for-3 wwith a walk and two runs scored out of the eight hole in the batting order.dddddddddddd.Its not something that Ive done a lot of, Girardi said of batting Teixeira eighth. I kind of looked at the matchup.Teixeira is hitting just .199 in 104 games this season.Meanwhile, Brian McCann is 10-for-29 (.345) with three homers and seven RBI off of Price.Former Red Sox hero-turned-villain Jacoby Ellsbury has also enjoyed success against Price, hitting him at a .357 clip (25-for-70) with one homer and six RBI.New York hands the ball to Bryan Mitchell (1-1, 6.14 ERA), who is making his third start of the year after missing a chunk of time with a left great toe tear. It is his first start ever against the Red Sox.Mitchell gave up six runs (five earned) on nine hits in a 2 1/3-inning loss to the Dodgers last Monday. He is 0-0 with a 6.14 ERA in four career appearances against the Red Sox.Jackie Bradley is 2-for-2 with an RBI, Xander Bogaerts is 1-for-3 with a double and Travis Shaw is 1-for-2 against Mitchell.The Red Sox will have Andrew Benintendi back in left field after he had the night off Friday. Benintendi will be playing just his second game back after missing 17 with a left knee sprain.Given the amount of time down, felt like were going to ease Andrew back into this, Farrell said.The Yankees, meanwhile, may be without closer Dellin Betances, as Girardi wanted to give him a couple days off after pitching three consecutive games and giving up a walk-off, three-run homer to Hanley Ramirez on Thursday.Its part of it. Its part of being a closer, Girardi said. As great as he was, we saw (Mariano Rivera) go through a couple times in a row that he would struggle. ... Hell bounce back. ' ' ' (Darren Lockyer) there to sink us again.Itll be a really good game - looking forward to it.The Titans only just limped into the finals after the Wests Tigers heavy loss to Canberra last weekend ensured they finished eighth on the ladder.But Meyers says the team have done enough to prove themselves worthy of a finals position and sees no reason why they cant cause an upset.Theyve got guys there that want to win, he said.They never shut off. Theyre pushing teams right to the end. You can see that with some of the results theyve got.Im looking forward to Friday night and watching them - fingers crossed they get up. ' ' '
