Australia coach Mal Meninga has rewarded his Kangaroos players with three days off following their undefeated start to the Four Nations campaign. Chipper Jones Jersey Large .Fresh from beating New Zealand 14-8 at Coventry, the squad departed their Birmingham base for London on Sunday ahead of next weeks clash with England at the Olympic Stadium (0100 Monday, AEDT).Several of the squad have flown out to Barcelona for a short break with other players staying in the British capital to catch up with friends and family.The squad will reassemble at a training facility near Twickenham, used by Michael Cheika and his Wallabies last week, on Wednesday to prepare for whats shaping up as potential thriller against England.Wayne Bennetts side must beat Australia to have any chance of qualifying for the final at Anfield on November 20.But their job will become even harder if New Zealand chalk up a huge winning margin against Scotland on Friday in Workington.If that were to happen it could see the hosts still go out on points differential even with a narrow success over the Kangaroos, who must also win to lock up their place in the decider.Meninga lit the touch paper for a potentially explosive encounter with a withering attack on Bennett in his recent column in the Courier Mail newspaper.However, the former Queensland mentor played down the significance of the pair locking horns and wouldnt be trapped into writing off England despite their underwhelming 38-12 win over the Scots.I thought they knew they were going to win the footy game and Scotland took it to them early, Meninga said.I think halftime was a blessing for them. Wayne would have got them off their backsides and they started to compete a bit better.Its not about me and him. Its about the teams. Hell want to have his English side very well prepared and its the same here.At the end of the day it comes down to the players and what they do on the footy field. Bobby Cox Jersey Large .com) - Yankee Stadium is the home of the Bronx Bombers, but on Sunday afternoon it will open its gates to host the latest addition of the Hudson River Rivalry. Custom Phil Niekro Jersey . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. http:///...rsey-large-377z.html . Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. A stellar future surely awaits Melbourne City after securing the FFA Cup, but on Wednesday night coach John van t Schip couldnt help but take a moment to look back.Citys 1-0 defeat of Sydney FC is the first trophy in the clubs seven-season history.The largesse bestowed upon the club by owners City Football Group demands, and perhaps ensures, more prizes to come.Van t Schip has been there with the club from the beginning and was eager to thank family, friends and supporters who have stuck with him during the clubs arduous history.He dwelled on one fallen friend - Dutch great Johan Cruyff - who acted as his mentor both as a player and a coach.I think of Cruyff who passed away half a year ago, he said.His legacy, the football philosophy that he left behind. I hope to contribute (to that) in the way he wanted to play football.I think were making those steps.More than anyone else at the club, van t Schip is entitled to think about the clubs journey.Quirkily, in an era where coaches are turfed all too easily, the Dutchman is one of the few survivorrs from season one, with its infamous wheelie bin ice baths. Orlando Cepeda Jersey Large. So when he wore a broad smile at full-time on Wednesday night at AAMI Park, there was no doubt hed earned it.Everybodys been waiting for it, he said.Its a start, hopefully for a lot more.Moments like this evening dont come too often. Thats what we said to the boys ... that every time you play a final its something special.Winning prizes gives you confidence. It shows youre on the right path.Its of course important for the players, getting a reward.For the fans that can now say hey we won a prize.But life doesnt stop. We have to celebrate this and make sure were focused and prepared for the upcoming game.City return to A-League action earlier than they might like, returning to AAMI Park to play Brisbane on Saturday night.Van t Schip said that wouldnt stop him and his winners sharing a beer to take in the success.You have to celebrate, he said.
