South Africa are in the middle of a crisis at the moment, with head coach Allister Coetzee faring unfavourably in his opening seven months at the helm. In 11 Tests under the 53-year-old, the Boks have slumped to seven losses, including a first ever defeat to Ireland on home soil, a record defeat at the hands of New Zealand in Durban, and an unprecedented loss to Italy. England also recorded a first win over South Africa in 10 years earlier this month. Sky Sports Black Friday sale Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price! South Africas 1995 World Cup-winning fly-half Joel Stransky said last month that South African rugby is rotten from the bottom up and top down and needs radical reform if recent results are to be overturned. One of South Africas major problems is an inability to cope with the money being offered to their players by overseas clubs, with the Top 14 a particular lure for seasoned campaigners looking to cash in on their trade before retirement.South Africans who play abroad are still eligible to play for the national side, with Johan Goosen and Willem Alberts recently featuring in the Rugby Championship, but there are plenty of South Africans playing in the French league who have been largely overlooked by Coetzee and his staff. Could those players challenge the Springboks in a game? We assemble a potential team... 15. Francois Steyn (Montpellier) Francois Steyn has not played for the Springboks since 2012 Steyn made his debut during South Africas autumn international tour in 2006, but it was at the 2007 World Cup in France that he caught the eye of the rugby public at large.However following some off-field issues, including alleged friction with SARU over image rights, the 29-year-old played his last Test for the Boks more than four years ago. Given his current form under Jake White at Montpellier, is it time for Steyn to be reintroduced to the South Africa setup?14. Paul Jordaan (La Rochelle) La Rochelles Paul Jordaan played for South Africa U20s for two years A relatively unknown quantity for northern hemisphere fans outside France, but Jordaan made a name for himself in South Africa playing in the Sharks midfield in Super Rugby before moving to La Rochelle earlier this year.The 24-year-old can play either on the wing or at centre, and played for the South Africa U20 side in 2011 and 2012 as well as the South Africa 7s team.13. Robert Ebersohn (Castres) Robert Ebersohn moved to Castres after a stint with Montpellier Ebersohn rose through the ranks alongside twin brother Sias, with whom he played Super Rugby for the Cheetahs. Sias then had a stint in Australia with Western Force, while Robert signed for Montpellier before making the move to Castres.The 27-year-olds were touted as possible Springbok regulars when they first arrived on the scene, but neither has managed a cap for the national side as yet.12. Meyer Bosman (Stade Francais) Meyer Bosman made his Bok debut at the age of 20 Bosman was another young talent who was thought to be something special when he first emerged on South Africas rugby landscape.Testament to his talent, he was handed a debut for the Boks in 2005 at the age of 20 before hed even played any Super Rugby. However since then, Bosman has only been picked on two further occasions, with his appearance off the bench in South Africas 49-0 thrashing at the hands of the Wallabies in 2006 his last taste of international rugby.11. Gio Aplon (Grenoble) Gio Aplon has won 17 caps for South Africa Aplon won the majority of his 17 Springbok caps under Peter de Villiers but did make one appearance in the Heyneke Meyer era, starting at full-back in South Africas 14-14 draw with England in June 2012.Aplon has struggled to cement a spot in South Africas back three, with the likes of Bryan Habana and JP Pietersen preferred ahead of him on the wing, and Zane Kirchner and Willie le Roux keeping him out of the No 15 jersey.10. Morne Steyn (Stade Francais) Morne Steyn is behind Pat Lambie and Elton Jantjies in the pecking order Morne Steyns series-winning kick for the Springboks against the Lions in 2009 was only his second appearance for South Africa, having made his debut in the first Test the week before.Steyn was preferred by Meyer for much of his time in charge of the Boks, but these days it is Pat Lambie and Elton Jantjies who are fighting it out for the No 10 jersey while Handre Pollard is out injured.The 32-year-old was drafted into the squad when Lambie picked up an injury against Ireland, but was employed as a replacement behind Jantjies. 9. Charl McLeod (Grenoble) Charl McLeod moved to Grenoble from the Sharks in 2014 McLoed has won one official cap for the Boks, taking the field as a replacement in a 40-7 defeat to the All Blacks in 2011, but also played for South Africa against the Barbarians at Twickenham in 2010.The scrum-half was a mainstay with the Sharks in Super Rugby, starting in the No 9 jersey when the Sharks last featured in a final in 2012, before signing for Grenoble in 2014.1. Heinke van der Merwe (Stade Francais) Heinke van der Merwe has five Springbok caps Leinster fans will be familiar with the powerful loosehead prop who featured for the province when they won the Heineken Cup in 2011 and 2012.The front rower traded Dublin for Paris three seasons ago, and now has his sights on a Top 14 title to go alongside his European medals. The 31-year-old has played five times for the Springboks but has struggled to get game time behind Tendai Beast Mtawarira.2. Bismarck du Plessis (Montpellier) Bismarck du Plessis moved to Montpellier with brother Jannie In a country where size is heralded in a tight-five forward, 32-year-old Du Plessis made a name for himself as an athletic hooker acting as an extra loose forward at the breakdown.Following the retirement of John Smit in 2011, Du Plessis was afforded more game time as a starter, but shared duties with Adriaan Strauss.Bismarck joined older brother Jannie on the plane to Montpellier last year, while Strauss is now captain of the Boks - however Strauss has announced he will retire from the international game at the end of 2016 which could allow Bismarck to add to his 79 caps. Highlights of Englands opening Autumn International against South Africa at Twickenham. 3. Jannie du Plessis (Montpellier) Jannie du Plessis last played for the Boks in the 2015 World Cup The versatile prop has amassed 70 Tests since making his debut along with his brother in July 2007 but his last game came against Argentina in the third-place play-off of the 2015 World Cup.The 33-year-old was not part of Coetzees plans for much of this year, though he was drafted into the squad briefly following several injuries to first-choice players, before later withdrawing due to the birth of his second child.4. Flip van der Merwe (Clermont) Flip van der Merwe was part of the Bok team that beat England in the 2012 June series Playing in the No 4 jersey for South Africa in the past decade meant competing with Bakkies Botha, which has not afforded Van der Merwe many opportunities.However the second rower still managed to represent the Springboks 37 times, taking part in some of their more memorable games in recent times, including all three Tests of the series win against England in 2012.5. Juandre Kruger (Toulon) Juandre Kruger has played 17 time for South Africa Kruger made his debut in that series against England, starting the three Tests alongside Eben Etzebeth, with Van der Merwe featuring from the bench.The second rower has played 17 Tests in total, with his last one coming in October 2013 in South Africas 37-28 loss to the All Blacks, a game that has been called one of the greatest of the modern era.6. Juan Smith (Toulon) Juan Smith tore his bicep earlier in the season Smith is currently out injured with a torn bicep, but since arriving at Toulon in 2013 he has won the hearts of his adopted fans in France.Formerly a one-club man with South Africas struggling Cheetahs, Smith has found renewed energy in the Top 14, and even earned a recall under Meyer after previously retiring from internationals.7. Jacques du Plessis (Montpellier) Jacques du Plessis has been a rampaging ball-carrier for Montpellier Du Plessis has not yet played for the Springboks, but it is likely only a matter of time before he is called upon. The 23-year-old has been a wrecking ball for Montpellier in the Top 14 and his side sit fourth in the table after 12 games this season.The 19-stone loose forward has been unfortunate to play in the same era as the likes of Schalk Burger and Francois Louw, but certainly has a future for the national side if he maintains his heroics.8. Duane Vermeulen (Toulon) Duane Vermeulen has been overlooked by Allister Coetzee due to his conditioning Vermeulen was an ever-present under Meyer, but after coming back from injury earlier this year Coetzee declared the No 8 surplus to requirements due to his conditioning. Though it wont have gone unnoticed that Vermeulens absence coincided with his recent comments about South African rugbys poor state.Warren Whiteley appears to have won favour with Coetzee in the absence of Vermeulen, but until the team starts winning on a regular basis, no places are guaranteed.

Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move.

Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. http://www.cheapadidasnmdshop.com/ .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday.

Cheap Adidas NMD Online . Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this season. He is 18-20 in his career with three saves and a 3. Jalen Teez Tabor isnt afraid to show his confidence. Some people mistake it for arrogance, but its the bravado needed to do his job: shut people down.Floridas 6-foot, 201-pound powder keg of emotion and talent has All-American tenacity because he can. He uses his witty, mostly NSFW words on the field to find that paralyzing edge, while fueling his own physical yet somewhat beautiful style of play that earned him first-team All-SEC honors as a sophomore last season.Id say he would certainly be in the starting five if we were going to have a basketball team of trash-talkers, said South Carolina coach Will Muschamp, who signed Tabor in his final recruiting class at Florida in 2014.Off the field, his words can pierce just as much. Just ask the Tennessee Vols.Though he has played in only one game against Tennessee, Floridas 11 straight wins over Tennessee since the early 1990s has left Tabor with no choice but to troll Rocky Top.On Twitter, he compared the Cleveland Cavaliers struggles in the first two games of this years NBA Finals against Golden State to Tennessees fourth-quarter collapse to the Gators in last seasons 28-27 thriller in the Swamp. In August, he went on national television with ESPNs Paul Finebaum to proclaim that Florida would extend its winning streak over the Vols to 12 this year. He mocked Tennessee being picked by ESPNs Football Power Index as the favorites to win the SEC East, called out Peyton Manning for never beating Florida and this past Saturday he simply tweeted Yep its a L during halftime of Tennessees 28-19 win over Ohio.Saturdays matchup between No. 14 Tennessee (3-0) and No. 19 Florida (3-0, 1-0 SEC), will bring plenty of SEC East Division talk, and a ton of Tabor talk.Its as simple as this: Tennessee plays Florida every year -- either in Gainesville or in Knoxville -- and at Florida, we win, Tabor told ESPN.com in August. At the end of the day, the University of Florida is going to beat the University of Tennessee. Thats the culture, thats history. Thats whats going to happen.Some things just continue to take place, and one of those things is the University of Florida beats the University of Tennessee in football.The braggadocious junior, who considers Steve Spurrier one of his idols, thrives on mental warfare. With a Deion Sanders-like attitude, Tabor isnt afraid to put himself on an island for criticism.I feel like Im the best player in the country, he said. They give the Jim Thorpe Award to the best DB, and I feel like if I do what I have to do, I dont see anybody else who can [win the award]. It shouldnt be an issue.Merri Tabor attributes her sons fierce confidence to his early days of flag football in the blue-collar town of Bowie, Maryland, when a 4-year-old Tabor constantly yapped at the children across from him. When he wasnt calling out players, he was calling out the other teams plays before they even got set.Before I knew my ABCs, I knew the offense was going to run a screen pass on third-and-9, Tabor said.Tabor taught himself the game by watching the NFL Network. He dissected plays in his mind and eventually predicted plays of NFL teams as soon as the offenses lined up. Madden video games served as electronic practices before he trotted out for the real thing.All hes done is football for the past 18 years, Merri Tabor said.Teez Tabor got his start as a talkative, Little League firecracker, but he cut his teeth during his four years at Friendship Collegiate Academy in southeast Washington, D.C. After spending most of his young academic life in private school, Tabors mom enrolled him in football powerhouse Our Lady of Good Counsel High School.However, when Tabor was in eighth grade, his mom met Aazaar Abdul-Rahim, who was coaching Friendships football team. Abdul-Rahim, now the defensive backs coach at Maryland, founded Friendships football team in 2004 and Merri Tabor wanted her son to work with and learn from him.Merri Tabor pulled her son out and moved into the district that housed Friendship, a charter school barely a decade old in an impoverished part of D.C., to subject him to a more humble lifestyle she hoped would present him with critical life lessons.I pulled him from what would have been a good situation to moving him somewhere where I thought he would fail, Merri Tabor said.To make it at Friendship, Tabor had to survive both the streets and the Beach.Friendship, located in D.C.s Ward 7, exposed Tabor to the toxic environment of a destitute, crime-stricken area. Tabor lost two of his close friends to shootings.He was jumped and robbed twice in high school, prompting his mother to have older students take him to the subway to get to school. She would pick him up after school and made sure he got to and from football practice without issues.So Friendship Beach, the schools dirt practice field, became his warped sanctuary.There was no locker room, so the players changed in nearby shipping containers. There were never enough helmets. There was no weight room, so they worked out in the schools halls. There was no home field, so every game was on the road.Skin and hair caked with dirt that sometimes remained after showers. Cleats cracked broken glass and food wrappers. Rocks scraped knees and there was no give underneath. Sometimes administrators combed the field for needles before practice. A dead body was found there. Practices ran as the sound of gunshots popped within close proximity.The Beach was a getaway for players hoping football would be a lottery ticket out of the horrors of the inner city.We wanted to practice at the Beach. We wanted to get dirty, Tabor said. We felt like that gave us the edge.Friendship humbled Tabor, who became nationally recognized with nearly 30 FBS offers. He didnt allow a pass to be completed on him his junior year, and the two-time Washington Post All-Met honoree broke up 17 passes with five interceptions as a senior on his way to becoming D.C.s Mr. Football and ESPNs No. 4-rated cornerback prospect.The slender five-star corner grabbed current South Carolina defenssive coordinator Travaris Robinsons attention.dddddddddddd Robinson, who was Floridas defensive backs coach at the time, remembers seeing a tenacious, long corner with exceptional ball skills, tremendous instincts and the willingness to tackle of a linebacker.Tabor dazzled live and his ability jumped off tape, but what really drew Robinson to him was his knowledge of the game.That tells me that in his spare time, he isnt playing video games, hes watching football, Robinson said. Thats more than half the battle, and thats not common anymore.Robinson also admired the semi-truck-sized chip on Tabors shoulder that he carried to Florida. With All-American Vernon Hargreaves III still around and leading the secondary, Tabor mostly listened, but he tried to outwork his teammates and take extra reps.Having Hargreaves there was great from a learning standpoint, but it was Tabors time with classmate Quincy Wilson that he said pushed his first-year progress. The two met during The Opening, a football camp at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, the summer before their senior years. They marveled at each other, as they immediately compared their size and skill. Wilson wanted to show the Maryland guy what Florida speed was like, and Tabor wanted to show the Florida kid what D.C. toughness was all about.That was the first time I saw another corner with my build, Wilson said of Tabor.They reunited at the Under Armour All-America Game practices, where again their competitiveness fueled their play. Of course, that bled over into Gainesville. Tabor said the two didnt talk much at first, subbing in and out of games without exchanging words. It wasnt bad blood, just two confident corners competing for a starting spot.But that competition slowly turned into teamwork. The more they worked together, the better they got, but it wasnt until the latter part of the season that the two really started to bond. They shared advice and created an on-field chemistry that made it tough for coaches to keep them on the sideline.The fact that he was balling and I was balling, it made us better, Wilson said. It was like, the coach had to play us.Tabor said he first really came around to Wilsons partnership when Hargreaves tired in Floridas bowl game against ECU, allowing the two to take the field together. The two, sitting at opposite sides of the bench, leaned back, looked at each other and nodded in unison.It was like everything paused, Tabor said. We were like, Lets go. Were in the game now. Standing about five yards off Kentucky receiver Dorian Baker, his back to Floridas sideline, Tabor kept his eyes on Kentucky quarterback Drew Barker. As soon as the ball was snapped, Tabor bounced twice to his left, then bolted toward Baker as Barker released, corralling the pass before tumbling to the ground.Deja vu.If Im going to call it out when Im 4 years old that theyre going to call a screen play, how am I not going to be able to call it out now? Its just a natural instinct, Tabor said. If you know its coming, why not go pick the ball off?Tabor has shown fantastic flashes like that since his freshman year when he started five games, earning All-SEC freshman honors with 31 tackles, including four for loss and two sacks. He broke up eight passes and had a masterful one-handed interception against Vanderbilt. Last year, Tabor started nine games -- sometimes outplaying Thorpe Award finalist Hargreaves -- with an SEC-high 18 passes defended with four interceptions (two went for touchdowns).He currently ranks 14th on Mel Kipers Big Board, and probably will follow Hargreaves as a first-round pick if he leaves after the season.He is one of a kind, Hargreaves said of Tabor last season. Hes natural and can do some things that no one else can do on the field. You cant teach it and you cant coach it.But Tabor doesnt think he has totally arrived, not like Hargreaves -- whom he looks up to like a brother. Tabor was snubbed from All-American consideration last year and didnt make the Thorpe Award watch list this summer. He blames himself. He blames the dropped interceptions and bouts with laziness in games.Tabor thrives on chaos -- a blessing and a curse. His loud play can make for an even louder mouth that has gotten him in trouble, like when he talked so much trash to tight end?Cyontai Lewis?during two-a-days this fall that the two brawled with helmets and were suspended?for the season opener.On Twitter, hes as aggressive as he is on the field, on just about any topic. In a span of six months, he weighed in on the controversial Alton Sterling shooting, called out Lewis after their on-field scuffle and criticized Floridas athletic association after he was suspended for last years Tennessee game, reportedly for refusing to take a drug test.Tabor knows he can be controversial but refuses to censor his honesty. Its remarkably refreshing, even if you disagree with him.Why not speak when somethings wrong? Tabor said. If somethings done the right way, I always compliment it, but when somethings wrong, thats when you have to say something.Tabor does have a softer side. He consumes himself with community service work, including summer football camps with Abdul-Rahim back in Maryland. He wants to open a charter school in D.C., and he has taken the name Teez because his younger cousin gave it to him when he was in high school.Merri Tabor worries her son is trying to do too much. But her brash child has become a face of Floridas football team. He conducted his own media day on Periscope when he didnt go to SEC media days, and head coach Jim McElwain, who is a fan of Tabors self-confidence and aggressive attitude, sent him on a personal publicity tour through New York.Tabor respects the spotlight and loves the pressure. More important, he loves what hes doing.Im just a young kid from [Prince Georges] County Maryland who had a dream and is still chasing a dream, he said.
