The Alliance to give it a shake-up Teams from New South Wales and Queensland should watch their backs, the Alliance are going to give the 2013 X-Blades Elite Eight a shake-up.The Alliance is a team made up of players from outside the two dominate states in touch football – NSW and Queensland.They are at the Elite Eight this year to give their more experienced rivals a run for their money.The men have the services of some very talented players such as Australian representative Stuart Brierty and under 18s player Robert McCarthy. They are going to be well-supported by Tim Glazebrook, Craig Boston and Chris Kavney who have all played at this level before.The women’s team will be led by Leah Percy, who has two women’s opens Trans-Tasman campaigns under her belt. Mel Woodward has also played at the international level in the women’s 30s.The Alliance women’s opens surprised many people and teams in the inaugural X-Blades Elite Eight Series with their brilliant performance. Not given any hope, they just missed out on the semi-finals.Percy said the team could go even better this time around.“I think all the girls will step up in their own right,” she said.“We’ve got a few good ball players, a few good ruckers and I think everyone will step up that little bit extra. “We are really a good team rather a team of superstars.”The Alliance do give up a distinct advantage to the opposition; getting together for training is hard consider the players are scattered around the country.Not that Brierty is using that as an excuse.“The boys are coming together nice and well and playing some nice footy,” Brierty said.“Hopefully we can do a bit better than last time around, we only won one game. We would like to emulate the girls, so we would like to be around the semi-finals at the pokie end of the season.”Brierty and Percy agreed playing for the Alliance was an honour.“It’s massive,” Brierty said. “It gives the developing states something to aspire to. “Being from WA myself I always wanted to play at the elite level. Now I’ve got the responsibility and the enjoyment of going back and helping the home roots like WA and Victoria and sides like that.”Stay tuned to in the lead up to the event to hear from each of the Elite Eight teams and their preparations for the series which starts on Wednesday, 13 March in Coffs Harbour.

USC Fan Makes Fake Craigslist Ad For A New Head Coach

first_imgUSC craigslist advertisement for a new head coach.usc new head coach steve sarkisianUSC was supposed to be a national title contender in 2015, but after losses to both Stanford and Washington, many are feeling underwhelmed by what they’ve seen on the field. Couple that with head coach Steve Sarkisian’s alcohol-infused snafu before the season even began and you’ve got the recipe for an upset fan base.One Trojans supporter has taken to Craigslist to help the program look for a new head coach already. The fan is looking for someone with a “basic understanding” of both clock management and offensive play calling.Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 5.38.57 PMIt’s unlikely that Sarkisian is on the hot seat, given the fact that this is just his second year at the helm in Los Angeles. But if he doesn’t return the Trojans to form soon, anything is possible.last_img

‘Barcelona should get Neymar and Griezmann’

first_imgBarcelona should not be mulling over whether to sign Neymar or Antoine Griezmann, says former technical secretary Urbano, with it suggested that they should go and sign both.The Liga champions are in the market for another frontman this summer.It was expected that France international Griezmann would be the man they turned to. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? A deal had been rumoured for the World Cup winner 12 months ago, before he decided to remain at Atletico Madrid.He is now looking for a move, while Neymar is said to be doing likewise at Paris Saint-Germain.A return to Camp Nou for the Brazil international has been mooted, with the Blaugrana apparently open to the idea of bringing him back.Urbano, though, believes that Barca should be considering snapping up two superstar strikers, rather than choosing between them.He told Catalunya Radio: “I would like both of them.” A man who worked at Camp Nou alongside Robert Fernandez is, however, aware that building bridges with Neymar may be difficult after he pushed for a switch to France in 2017.Urbano added: “You can understand Neymar coming back because of the quality he has, but with the way he acted at that moment, in the summer of 2017, it would be difficult.”Ousmane Dembele Lyon Barcelona Champions League 19022019If Barca are to bolster their attacking ranks, then departures are also to be expected.Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move elsewhere after struggling to prove his worth in Spanish football.Ousmane Dembele is another seeing his future called into question after being acquired with the funds generated by Neymar’s sale.”Dembele has incredible potential, he’s young and he can still add a lot,” said Urbano.He added on the 22-year-old winger, who was lured away from German giants Borussia Dortmund in a big-money deal two years ago: “We knew when we signed him that he’d had some problems, but we assessed, above all, the profile of the player we were signing.” Dembele has struggled for form and fitness throughout his time at Camp Nou.He is, however, considered to boast plenty of potential and may be retained even if marquee additions are made to Ernesto Valverde’s squad.last_img read more
