At the midway point of the NFL regular season, the Dallas Cowboys already can taste the playoffs. Johnny Unitas Colts Jersey .The Cowboys have won six straight games since a season-opening loss, have the leagues two most dynamic rookies and are clicking on all cylinders.The Cleveland Browns just want to taste what its like to win a game. At 0-8, the leagues only winless team is sputtering toward a date with history as the fifth club to fail to emerge victorious in a regular-season game. The other four teams are Dallas (1960), Tampa Bay (1976), Baltimore (1982) and Detroit (2008).The Browns face a tall challenge to crack the win column on Sunday (1 p.m., ET) when they play host to the Cowboys at FirstEnergy Stadium. The game will be broadcast on Fox.Dallas offense is ranked fourth overall and its defense is 12th.If the task was not daunting enough for the hapless Browns, the Cowboys have won five of their past seven road games and on Wednesday were anointed as the second-best team by Las Vegas oddsmakers.Dallas has been installed as a 7-to-1 favorite to win the Super Bowl, only behind the 8-to-5 New England Patriots.According to cbssports.com, Football Outsiders pegs the Cowboys as having a 94.5 percent chance of making the playoffs and a 64.3 percent chance of landing a bye.At the rate the Browns are going, they will have 100 percent chance of landing the top pick in next years draft. If they do, they can take a lesson from owner/general manager Jerry Jones and his staff, because its the play of two rookies that has lifted Dallas to elite level.Ezekiel Elliott, the fourth overall pick out of Ohio State, leads the league with 799 rushing yards and five touchdowns. Elliott gives the Cowboys attitude out of the backfield, toughness between the tackles and deceptive breakaway speed that has helped the team average a shade under 165 yards rushing a game.Elliotts sidekick, quarterback Dak Prescott, has high praise for his fellow rookie.He has been good because of the way he practices every day throughout the week. It transfers on Sunday. He is a guy that he goes to score a touchdown every rep of practice, Prescott said. He works hard in the weight room, in the film room and it just all pays off on Sundays.Prescott remains entrenched as the Cowboys quarterback. All hes done since taking the helm of the offense when Tony Romo went out in the preseason with a compression fracture in his back is complete 65.2 percent of his passes for 1,773 yards and nine touchdowns.Prescott, Dallas fourth-round draft pick, is coming off his first sub-par performance on Sunday when he was tested but still able to rally the Cowboys to a 29-23 overtime victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.When it counted most, Prescott played with poise and came through. His 22-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant tied the game with three minutes left. He completed all five pass attempts in overtime, including a game-winning 5-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jason Witten.Prescott didnt let his early struggles get to him with the game on the line.Im not going to stop, he said. I dont care how bad I play early on, I dont care really what I do, Im not going to give up.This was supposed to be the week when Romo would return, but he was ruled out by both Jones and head coach Jason Garrett.My opinion is that we want him to have some more strengthening work done, Jones said earlier in the week. Hes really doing well -- probably as well as at any time last year, as far as aspects of strength in his back is concerned. But hes got some more to do.The earliest Romo could return would be Nov. 13 at the Pittsburgh Steelers. But neither Jones nor Garrett were tipping their hand.The Browns only wish they had a similar decision. Six players have taken snaps for Cleveland this year. They have combined to throw nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.From Robert Griffin III to Josh McCown to rookie Cody Kessler with a sprinkle of Terrelle Pryor Sr., Charlie Whitehurst and Kevin Hogan, Cleveland surprisingly has been competitive.Kessler went 0-5 as a starter before a concussion knocked him out and elevated McCown back into the starters role against the New York Jets last week.The Browns blew a 20-7 lead only to lose 31-28 to the Jets. McCown completed 25 of 49 passes for 341 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He threw both interceptions in the second half.Coach Hue Jackson finally made the decision on Friday to go with Kessler for Sunday and the rest of the season.Because I need to know, Jackson told reporters of the decision. I dont want to just say if (Kessler) does great that doesnt mean that were not going to draft a quarterback, because I think youve got to always have quarterbacks. Youve got to keep taking shots until you have the guy that you feel is going to do what you need done.But you need to know whats on your team, and the more Im around guys, the more that I see them in different situations and play under duress and stress and pressure, the more Im going to know about them. So, this is an opportunity for Cody to demonstrate that. But more so than that, its an opportunity for him to go out with his teammates and help them get a win.Kessler getting the start pits two close friends against each other.Yeah, that is my boy. Me and Cody have known each other since junior year of the Manning Camp, junior year of college, Prescott said. He is a great guy, fun to just hang out with, a fun guy to just be around. He is probably one of the better friends I have at the quarterback position throughout the league.Kessler will have to try to survive a swarming Dallas defense led by linebacker Sean Lee (69 tackles) and Tyrone Crawford (3.5 sacks).A big boost to the offense should be the return of rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman. In two games, Coleman had 173 yards and two touchdowns. He broke his hand in practice the following week and has not played since.Everything is perfect, healed up just the way we wanted it to, Coleman said Monday. I am excited to get back out there with the guys. I know they have been working extremely hard trying to get a win, so I am happy to be back out there.Rumors swirled around a number of Cleveland veterans as the trade deadline came and went on Tuesday. Veteran left tackle Joe Thomas was still with the team, as was the Browns best defender, cornerback Joe Haden.The Browns did make a deal that raised eyebrows around the league and sent a conditional third-round pick to New England for Pro Bowl linebacker Jamie Collins, who said he wasnt fazed by the trade.Im good. Im ready to move on, he said. I am a workaholic. I am going to give you what I have every game and every day regardless. You are going to get my plays.Collins will be counted on to shore up the leagues worst defense. The Browns give up 29.8 points per game and give up the second-most yards on the ground per game at a shade under 144 yards.If the Cowboys have a weakness that the Browns might be able to exploit, it is in the defensive backfield where both safety Barry Church and cornerback Morris Claiborne are out.For the Browns, Pryor (hamstring) and Thomas (knee) both missed Wednesdays practice and are listed as questionable. Rock Ya-Sin Colts Jersey . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Devin Funchess Youth Jersey . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. http://www.coltsofficialstore.us/authentic-ben-banogu-colts-jersey/ . Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team. "Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. Central Coast coach Paul Okon has criticised what he perceives as poor officiating this A-League campaign after no action on a late penalty appeal against Western Sydney.The Mariners drew 1-1 on Saturday night but were unlucky not be awarded a penalty - and potentially victory - when Wanderers defender Jack Clisby appeared to handball just inside the area.Clisbys arm blocked Trent Buhagiars cross but despite the players shouts, referee Shaun Evans played on.Okon did not comment specifically on the incident when asked what he thought but was dripping with sarcasm when referencing other refereeing incidents.Its not really important what I think, Okon said.I dont have the whistle or the flag to make that judgment.All Ill say is I think in the four games weve had, some bad decisions have gone against us that have cost us points.They do tell me - becaause Im an inexperienced coach - that over the season it balances itself up, so I cant wait for that. Marshall Faulk Youth Jersey. he Mariners draw earned them a second point from four games to continue a season of sweeping change under new coach Okon.Against a wasteful Wanderers outfit the former Young Socceroos mentor asked for compact defending without the ball and personality with it.The reward is we go home with a point and confidence that weve competed against a team that everybody considers to be one of the best in the competition, Okon said.After four games were on the right track.If anyone thought we were going to win 27 A-League games coming from where we were theyd be nuts but we travel to Adelaide next week with confidence.

Carl Frampton has questioned whether the BBCs Sports Personality of the Year is anti-Northern Ireland after he and other stars from the country were omitted from the awards shortlist. Deshaun Watson Jersey .The Belfast boxer, who in 2016 unified super bantamweight world titles before moving up a division to win the WBA world featherweight title, claimed he would have been selected on the 16-strong list if he was English.Framptons remarks came as Democratic Unionist MP Ian Paisley vowed to raise concerns around the absence of Northern Ireland nominees at Westminster.As well as a regional basis, Frampton suggested the selection was also potentially anti-boxing.He also asked why two-time world Superbike champion Jonathan Rea from County Antrim and Team GBs most decorated Paralympian at Rio, Bethany Firth, were also omitted.Paralympians who won fewer medals in Brazil than the County Down swimmers haul of three golds and a silver did make the 16.I feel like I should have got on but Johnny Rea also had a shout, Bethany Firth as well also had a shout, said Frampton. And I think maybe what it looks to me is anti-boxing, maybe anti-Northern Ireland, who knows?But listen, I am not going to cry about it and Ill get on with my career.Frampton became the first boxer from Northern Ireland to win world titles at two different weights when he beat previously undefeated Mexican Leo Santa Cruz in New York in the summer.That featherweight victory came after he defeated Englands Scott Quigg in Manchester in February to unify two super bantamweight world titles.In an interview with BBC Radio Ulster, Frampton said he believed Andy Murray, who won nine titles in 2016 and became world number one for the first time, would be the clear winner of the award, but he said he still deserved to be among the nominees.I am slightly disappointed, I think, especially as they extended the list and there was no space for me, he said. I unified a title and I moved up and beat a three weight world champion -- both fights on the road as well.But Im not going to complain about that. I didnt get picked for whatever reason. I feel there are people on that list that I deserve to be on in front of.North Antrim MP Paisley has tabled an early day motion on the issue in the Commons.In response to the furore, a BBC spokeswoman said: In what has been an extraordinary year of sport, many contenders were considered and debated by an expert industry panel, who by consensus agreed on the shortlist.The issue was also raised on the floor of the Stormont Assembly.When asked for her thoughts concerning the lack of Northern Irish-born sports stars on the shortlist, the regions First Minister Arlene Foster replied: She is not amused.Foster also said Executive colleagues intended to challenge BBC management, adding that she believed there was a problem with the judging panel.Foster said: I think it is absolutely scandalous that someone of Carl Framptons ability, and indeed a double world champion, should be excluded.Another man who should have been thought of as well is Jonathan Rea, who again is a double world champion. What about Bethany Firth?And, indeed what about Michael McGovern, that man from Fermanagh who did sterling work for the Northern Ireland team during the Euros.I think there is a huge hole in relation to the Sports Personality of the Year, despite the fact that they have increased from 12 to 16, they have managed to leave out some of the very special sporting stars from Northern Ireland.

James Sutherland, Cricket Australias chief executive, has claimed the national team had near identical preparation to South Africa despite the facts telling a rather different story. Zach Randolph Jersey .As the hosts came to terms with another disastrous batting display on day one of the Hobart Test, Sutherland said that Steven Smiths team could not blame their preparation for the poor results achieved so far this summer, following on from a 5-0 ODI defeat in South Africa and a 3-0 away pasting at the hands of Sri Lanka before that.Ive heard a little bit of commentary around preparation and I think its interesting. The first thing is that every summer is a little bit different, Sutherland said on ABC Radio. If we cast our minds forward to next year there will be more opportunities for Shield cricket, thats a different schedule again because the season will start later.But also that criticism around the preparation, I dont think the preparation is anything that Australian cricket can complain about because South Africa have had the same schedule in terms of preparation as we have. We have both played each other in one-day matches in October, came through here, had various forms of long-form or other preparatory matches.They played a game in Adelaide under lights as Shield cricket played under lights. So if you draw that comparison the team we are playing against hasnt had any different preparation. So yes, ideally you might have a different preparation but the fact of the matter is you cant.In contradiction of Sutherlands words, Australias players did not get the chance to play even a single match with a red ball in between the Sri Lanka and South Africa Test series. By contrast, many of South Africas players - those not taking part in the ODIs at home - were able to play first-class cricket during this period, and then had two warm-up matches in contrast to the one (pink ball) Shield game played before the Perth Test.Sutherland noted that there was a wider effort currently being undertaken at ICC level to reduce the amount of international cricket played while adding the context of league structures across each format. Such a move would in turn allow more room for domestic schedules to breathe.The reality is the future tours program requires us to play a certain amount of cricket at home and whatever we play at home weve got to reciprocate away, he said. So the complexity around that is greater because most countries share the same season as us. So we have to find ourselves playing matches like we did this year in October against South Africa. We couldnt play them earlier because thats not their season, their season is October. We are having them and then Pakistan later in our peak season.From that perspective the schedule is difficult and at ICC level its something were working very hard on to try and get more structure to refine the way in which international cricket is played and to be honest ultimately play less international cricket so that its more valuable and is not these random series that crop up all the time. That we have context through some sort of a league structure. The hope is there will be less international cricket which allows gaps in preparation but also ideally for international cricket to be more valuable and precious.Responding to criticism directed at the captain Steven Smith, Sutherland said that while all were impatient for immediate success, there was a strong belief within CA that Smith was the right man for the job - as evidenced by his steely innings while the rest fell around him on day one at Bellerive Oval.Were certainly very conscious of the fact that Steve has come into the role much younger...than any of his four or five predecessors, Sutherland said. I had a look the other day - you go back to Border, Taylor, Waugh, Ponting, Clarke...between 29 and 34 I think they came into the captaincy of the Australian team. Steve was 26. All of them came in being world-class batsmen. But I dont think if you look back in history, certainly in my time [as CEO], none of them have made an easy or smooth transition into the job.Its a big step up and its a real challenge and even more so if you dont have the players around you that are performing as well as they might or could or whatever. So that added challenge is there. But we have a very high regard for Steve Smith as a person, as a leader, and obviously as a cricketer and we think that with his support and as he builds the team around him and they perform hes got a very bright future as a leader for a long time.

Matt Kenseth has some unfinished business at the Martinsville Speedway when he arrives at the Virginia track to start the penultimate round of the Chase. Ganso Brazil Jersey .That unfinished business is to win a second Sprint Cup championship -- his first under the Chase format instead of the old season-long points battle.Never short on determination or talent, Kenseth has been trying to get back to champion status since 2003 when he and crew chief Robbie Reiser won the title with a lone victory at the Ford team owned by Jack Roush. It was not necessarily a happy occasion, since Kenseth and his crew chief were roundly criticized for stroking to the title by points racing.It was, in many respects, the birth of the Chase format, designed to make sure drivers push the accelerator to the max. Kenseth led only 354 laps in 36 races his championship season and this year has already led 717, which is slightly more than his career seasonal average of 693.Last year, Kenseth had some other unfinished business get in the way of his championship pursuit. The goal was to win the race and, as it turned out, beat front-running Joey Logano, the same driver who had rammed him out of the lead in the late stages two races earlier at the Kansas Speedway.The plan infamously went awry. Instead of beating Logano to the checkered flag, Kenseth ended up beating him into the Turn 3 wall after the Wisconsin driver tangled with Loganos Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski on a re-start and got fed up with the Ford duo. Kenseth and Keselowski had literally fought at Charlotte several weeks earlier.Kenseth, who was forced to the sideline by a suspension from NASCAR for his frontier justice, is focused on a victory to advance to the championship finale at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. By most accounts the feud with Team Penske is over -- although another skirmish in the tight confines of Martinsville could well rekindle it.For a driver with as such down-home Wisconsin attitude, Kenseth cant seem to get away from controversy at this time of year. He comes into Martinsville on the heels of another flare-up, somewhat similar to his championship season.Along with his fellow Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards, Kenseth was a strumbo -- or an old-school points racer -- at last weeks race in Talladega, where the trio rode around in the back to avoid stealing points from fellow Chase aspirant Denny Hamlin.But as the NASCAR world turns, each race weekend brings a new perspective. The Round of 8 that starts at Martinsville sharpens every championship contenders focus on winning. A victory is the surest way to get to the finale in Homestead. Otherwise a driver needs a stellar points record -- which can easily go askew in the fender-banging at Martinsville.Before moving to JGR in 2013 from Roush-Fenway Racing, Kenseth had not fared well at Martinsville, which has not been kind to Fords in recent autumn events. Driving a Toyota and cribbing notes from his teammates, Kenseth has been more consistent at Martinsville under crew chief Jason Ratcliff, finishing sixth or better four times -- including his best ever finish of second in 2013.Its been a tough place for me for a lot of years, but the last four years since I got with Jason at JGR, weve been pretty competitive there, Kenseth said. Its certainly one that Ive always wanted to go win. Weve come up short, weve had problems there -- things like that -- but typically we run good, so Im really looking forward to getting to Martinsville and hopefully we can perform well and get a good finish and kick off the next round in a positive way.One can imagine Kenseth enjoying the prospect of returning to Martinsville with racing on his mind rather than revenge or balloon-footing it like Talladega according to team strategy. Theres that unfinished business of finally winning a championship under not only the Chase format, but the elimination structure that was launched in 2014.Prior to Talladega, Kenseth, who had two victories in the regular season, was averaging a Top 5 finish in the first five Chase races. He knows the hill gets steeper as the field is winnowed down. Man, good race cars, good race car drivers, good teams, he said.One of those good cars belongs to Talladega winner Logano, who certainly has his own unfinished business at Martinsville. It remains to be seen if Keselowski, who was eliminated from the Chase last week, will run interference for his teammate on the short track where both Penske cars have run well.We got momentum, we have speed, said Logano, who said he learned a lot about his own confidence last year after winning three straight Chase races and then getting dumped by Kenseth.This year, Logano said he once again had three good cars in the Round of 12 and thats given his team momentum.We have a lot of confidence for that reason because we know we can do it, he said. We know we can go to these next couple races, theyre good racetracks for us, all three of them are. We just got to go out there and fight, do what we know how to do ... I think were better under pressure. Thats kind of our motto this year, we can fight under those situations. We know how to do that.As for JGR, since Hamlin -- an excellent short track driver -- advanced at Talladega, all four drivers are in the Round of 8 and theres little margin for team orders.Given that last years Martinsville winner Jeff Gordon returns as a substitute for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. at Hendrick Motorsports, and that teammate Jimmie Johnson is the career leader at the track among active drivers with eight wins, the fight at the front should be furious.Former Martinsville winners Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch, both Chevy drivers, are also in the Round of 8.Kenseth is still looking for his first career victory at Martinsville -- like Logano -- and will have his work cut out for him if hes going to get to that second championship. Say what one will about last weeks lack of racing, at least the Chase has one good ol short track on the schedule. In a setting where saving brakes might be a good idea, holding back on the accelerator or trying to protect ones fenders is a losing proposition. Jonas Brazil Jersey . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. Ricardo Oliveira Jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. http://www.soccerbrazilonline.com/Rodrigo-Caio-Copa-America-Jersey/ . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Matteo Aicardi is tough to guard in normal situations in water polo. When Italy plays with the man advantage, he becomes even more dangerous.Same for Filip Filipovic and Serbia, Ioannis Fountoulis and Greece, and the list goes on and on.The importance of man-up situations, long one of the most critical areas in the Olympics first team sport, is on full display right now in Rio de Janeiro. Through two days of the mens tournament, there have been three ties and five one-goal games -- making every chance to attack with an extra player a very precious commodity.Extra man, in this kind of sport, the last few years, this is the most important moment in the match, Aicardi said after he scored four times in Italys 11-8 victory over France on Monday.Water polo has three types of fouls: ordinary, exclusion and penalty. The majority of whistles during a typical match are for ordinary infractions, which result in a simple free throw. But intentionally kicking or striking an opponent, disrespecting a referee or using foul language are among a group of actions that can prompt an exclusion, a player being sent off for a maximum of 20 seconds. The player also can return after a goal or change of possession.Its important, the 6-on-5, but its important for defense, because when you lose control on defense it leads to easy goals and easy goals in these close games, you pay at the end, Italy coach Alessandro Campagna said.Exclusions often lead to momentum swings, either through scoring on offense or coming up with a big stop on the defensive side. Exclusions also can help wear down opponents, since it requires field players and goaltenders to work extra hard to protect the cage while their teammate waits anxiously in the re-entry area in the corner near his countrys bench.I think extra-man attack and defense makes or breaks games, Australia driver Richie Campbell said. If you got solid defeense in extra man and youre shutting them out, then it puts a lot of mental pressure on them as well as the physical pressure. Filipe Luis Jersey. Italy and France were tied at 1 before Christian Presciutti and Alessandro Velotto scored consecutive extra-man goals, making it 3-1 with 2:20 left in the first. After Thibaut Simons penalty shot trimmed Italys lead to 8-6 in the third, Aicardi helped the silver medalists from London regain control with a goal from in close right after Igor Kovacevics exclusion had ended.Aicardi played with a white mask after he suffered a broken nose during Saturdays 9-8 win over Spain.It worked, he said. I faced one punch maybe and one shot in my face, but everything is OK.Greece and Serbia combined for nine extra-man goals in a 9-9 tie in the first match of the second day. Australia came up empty on a couple of extra-man trips in the fourth period of its 9-9 tie against Hungary. Blai Guell Mallarachs man-up goal with 4:11 left proved to be the difference in Spains 10-9 victory over the winless United States.Weve got to start making stops, said Bret Bonanni, who had four goals for the U.S. We cant let the other team score 10 goals.Playing in front of an adoring crowd, surprising Brazil got five goals from Josip Vrlic and moved to 2-0 with a runaway 16-8 victory over Japan. It leads Group B with four points, followed by Greece with three.Next up for the host country is Serbia on Wednesday night.Croatia, which won gold in London and edged Montenegro 8-7 on Monday night, is tied with Italy for the top spot in Group B. Spain and Montenegro are tied for third with two points apiece.After five games in the preliminary round, the top four teams in each group advance to the quarterfinals.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap ' ' '

It feels too early to start shouting this, so lets whisper it: it looks like South Africa are back. Craig Anderson Jersey . Perhaps not back to their absolute best and definitely not back to the team they were when they were No.1, but back in business.This series win is not going to become the stuff of legend and there were times when it seemed like New Zealand cared it about it more - after all, it is New Zealand who have never won a series against South Africa - but it will become seen as the marker for when South Africa began anew.Calling themselves a team in transition more than two years after the retirements of Graeme Smith and Jacques Kallis and four years after Mark Bouchers had become a crutch, and South Africa knew it. They had already transitioned but they did not like what they had transitioned into. They were a team stuck in a rut. They lost five out of eight Tests last summer, in their worst season since readmission, and were badly affected by injuries and uncertainty.To solve those problems, they did not hold a training camp before the series. They sat around and talked.A large group of members of the national squad and those who might be considered for selection in the next few years were summoned to a bonding and strategy session. They plotted what they have started to call their new mission. They dont want to share all the details but they have revealed that part of the plan will be to play more aggressively.In their first attempt at applying that, in Durban, it failed when over-eager batsmen gave their wickets away. In their second, at Centurion, they attacked with their traditional strength - the bowling - and it worked as well, if not better than it always has.Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Kagiso Rabada have formed a formidable fast-bowling trio that offers everything from swing and seam movement to pace and bounce but those are only half the reason they are so dangerous. The other half is that they just dont let up. Philander is the one with the reputation for putting the ball in the same area and the moving it just enough to create uncertainty but Steyn and Rabada maintain the same intensity through long periods of time.There is never a stage in a Steyn spell when a batsmen thinks he can relax. Even when he has been hit for a few runs, even at the end of the day, even when it seems one over can just meander into the next, Steyn runs in with blood on the brain. Just when you think he is out of your face, in steps Rabada. He does not intimidate in the same way - there are no eyes, no veins, no tattoos - there is just pace, a lot of it. Rabada averaged 142.6kph in the first innings, more than anyone else.That is the big difference between the two sides. Even though New Zealands quicks have many of the same qualities as South Africas, they are not as regularly ruthless. In Tim Southee and Doug Bracewell, in particular, batsmen can rely on getting enough loose balls to be able to score off. Trent Boults skill and Neil Wagner determination were stand-out aspects for New Zealand but they needed more discipline from the rest of their attack if they wanted to properly challenge the South African batsmen.In Durban, New Zealand encountered a South African line-up coming in from the cold with some of its biggest names out of form, and cashed in on that. At Centurion, JP Duminy and Faf du Plessis hit their stride and were more difficult to dislodge. South Africas second innings gave New Zealand a glimpse of what could have been but by then, they had conceded a massive lead and their focus had to shift to how their own line-up could put on an improved showing.That was where New Zealand let themselves down most. Their line-up went from solid to soft in the space of two sub-Saharan African countries and it has as much to do with the quality of the opposition as it does with the weak spots in their current set-up.At the top, Tom Latham could not replicate his form in Zimbabwe but it is Martin Guptill who will concern them most. Three years after making 1, 0 and 1 in his first three Test innings in South Africa, nothing had changed. Guptill still struggles against the moving ball and there is evidence of that everywhere. In the 59 times Guptill has been dismissed by fast bowlers, he has been caught by the wicketkeeper or in the slips 24 times.That alone made the case for New Zealand to have tried Jeet Raval in Zimbabwe to see what he could do but they may not have wanted to use him in South Africa because it would add to their inexperience. WIth Henry Nicholls at No.5 and Mitchell Santner batting as high as No.7, there was the risk of an over-reliance on Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor. When neither fired, New Zealand could not sustain their flickers of promise.The difference came down to that: South Africa had more experience and more quality and even New Zealands best efforts at preparation could not overcome those things. Rightfully, South Africa displaced them from fifth on the rankings to occupy the spot themselves.It will be another eight weeks before South Africa are able to build on the gains they have made and they will have to do so in someone elses backyard. A three-Test tour of Australia in November is their next assignment, before they host Sri Lanka and travel to New Zealand. That gives them nine more Tests before Russell Domingos contract as head coach is up and enough opportunity to climb even higher. It is too early to say whether it will keep him his job but the noise that he was the reason for their decline and could not possibly oversee their rise will become whispers.South Africas under-fire coach kept a low profile all series, even on the day they won. It was the same day he turned 42. At least he had a happy birthday. Ottawa Senators Jerseys . Belfort (24-10) needed just 77 seconds to down Henderson in the headlining bout of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson" event at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil. The fight served as a rematch of the pairs 2006 meeting, which Henderson won by decision. Colin White Senators Jersey .
