Manly predicted Round 1 line-up: Soward on who plays pivot

first_imgBack-rower Joel Thompson has joined the club from the St George Illawarra Dragons but the team otherwise looks largely similar to the 2017 iteration.NRL.com expert Jamie Soward says:”For Trent Barrett, he’s seen the blueprint that works for Manly which is having Cherry-Evans play that six role where he can run around and play on the ball and get the ball when he wants it and having the guy alongside him who can control and kick. Croker is going to be important towards that.”He’ll be the starting six. Jackson Hastings I don’t think has quite worked out where his best position is, whether it’s fullback, halves or hooker but he’ll definitely keep the pressure on.”They got the best out of Sironen and Winterstein last year, it will come down to whether they can get the best out of them again.”NRL.com’s predicted Round 1 team:1 Tom Trbojevic, 2 Jorge Taufua, 3 Dylan Walker, 4 Brian Kelly, 5 Aku Uate, 6 Lachie Croker, 7 Daly Cherry-Evans, 8 Marty Taupau, 9 Api Koroisau, 10 Darcy Lussick, 11 Curtis Sironen, 12 Joel Thompson, 13 Jake Trbojevic. Interchange: 14 Lewis Brown, 15 Lloyd Perrett, 16 Addin Fonua-Blake, 17 Frank Winterstein. Reserves: 18 Jackson Hastings, 19 Shaun Lane, 20 Matthew Wright, 21 Jack Gosiewski.last_img read more

Emotions Got the Better of Me: Raheem Sterling Admits after Being Dropped by England

London: Raheem Sterling said he allowed his “emotions” to get the better of him leading to a brief altercation with Liverpool’s Joe Gomez that resulted in Manchester City player being dropped for Thursday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.Sterling admitted on Instagram on Tuesday he and Gomez “had words” when they met up at the England camp the day after Liverpool’s 3-1 win over defending champions Manchester City which left the latter nine points adrift of Jurgen Klopp’s side. “Both Joe and I have had words and figured things out and moved on,” Sterling said.”We are in a sport where emotions run high and I am man enough to admit when emotions got the better of me.”This is why we play this sport because of our love for it — me and Joe Gomez are good, we both understand it was a five to 10-second thing… it’s done, we move forward and not make this bigger than it is.”Let’s get focus on our game on Thursday,” Sterling added.The Daily Mail reported that Gomez and Sterling had to be separated by teammates on Monday after a “physical confrontation.”The pair had also clashed on the field towards the end of Sunday’s match.’THE BEST STATESMAN’England manager Gareth Southgate moved quickly to deal with the issue — arguably one of his achievements during his time in the post has been to erase the rivalries between members from different clubs which plagued previous England squads.The likes of former star defender Rio Ferdinand have spoken about how when they used to join the England camp he and Manchester United players would stick together and find it hard to mix with Chelsea or Liverpool stars.In a statement prior to Sterling’s Instagram post issued by the Football Association, Southgate alluded to that.”We have taken the decision to not consider Raheem for the match against Montenegro on Thursday.”One of the great challenges and strengths for us is that we’ve been able to separate club rivalries from the national team. Unfortunately, the emotions of yesterday’s game were still raw.”My feeling is that the right thing for the team is the action we have taken. Now that the decision has been made with the agreement of the entire squad, it’s important that we support the players and focus on Thursday night.”Sterling has been one of the stars of England’s qualification campaign, scoring eight goals in six games.A draw against Montenegro at Wembley will be enough to guarantee England’s place at Euro 2020.Sterling has enjoyed a makeover in his image in the past year with less biting observations of his bling-bling image in the press and more positive headlines regarding his public stance against racism.Six Chelsea fans were banned — one for life — after racially abusing him during a league game last season and along with England team-mates he also suffered abuse in their Euro qualifiers against Bulgaria and Montenegro.The 24-year-old silenced the critics over having a rifle tattooed on his leg by revealing it was his pledge never to touch a gun following his father being shot dead in Jamaica in front of his own father when the star was just two.He has been hailed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan for his campaigning against racism.”I’d go as far to say he’s the best statesman we have (for fighting racism),” Khan said in September this year.
