Maumalo hopeful of NRL return

first_imgIt was the first win for the New South Welshmen in the fixture since 2013 and Maumalo’s efforts were a big reason for their success. Maumalo scored a hat-trick, rediscovering the form that saw him make his NRL debut in 2015 – playing eight games for the Warriors. Originally better known as a back-rower in his Holden Cup days, Maumalo has transformed himself into a hulking winner with a knack for scoring spectacular tries. Yet to return to the big time in 2016, the 21-year-old says Sunday’s match was just like playing in the NRL. “Hopefully performances like that can put my name forward for first grade this year,” Maumalo said. “It’s pretty hard right now to get a crack at the Warriors because there are heaps of outside backs but getting a go last year was really good. “That game today was very close to NRL standard. It was as physical as an NRL match and we were all stuffed at the end. My lungs were blowing so it was great to hang on and get the win.”It’s not my first hat-trick of my career but it’s certainly my most memorable. It’s really good to get one over the Queenslanders and I’m proud to get a hat-trick.”It was Maumalo’s first taste of the State of Origin rivalry that is QLD vs. NSW and the versatile winger was impressed with the intensity of the contest.  Defence ultimately won NSW the match and Maumalo was full of praise for his teammates’ efforts in the middle of the park. “It’s a pretty strong rivalry. That’s honestly one of the hardest games of football I’ve played in my life. It was just so physical,” he said.  “We stuck in there with our defence and we didn’t let them back into the game in that last quarter. “It’s a full credit to the boys in the middle who defended well for the full 80. It was nice for me to finish off their hard work with a few tries.”last_img read more

Penrith Panthers beat Newcastle 42-6 for Knights’ 15th-straight NRL loss

first_imgAfter an uninspiring first half at Hunter Stadium on Sunday, the Panthers and the Knights were locked at 6-6 at the break.But Penrith dominated the second stanza, leaving the Knights to extend their club record losing streak to 15 games.It also puts Newcastle into the top 10 on the all-time longest losing streak list.The Knights enjoyed 60 per cent of the possession in the first half, but despite repeated opportunities they could not crack the Panthers’ line.Instead, it was the Panthers who opened the scoring, with winger Josh Mansour crossing untouched in the 12th minute after some good lead-up work by Waqa Blake.The Knights hit back after 30 minutes when Brendan Elliot plucked a Trent Hodkinson bomb out of the air and raced over.But that was as close as the Knights got as they capitulated in the second half to let the Panthers run in six unanswered tries.Matt Moylan broke the deadlock in the 44th minute when he ran off a Peter Wallace pass and touched down under the posts.From there the floodgates opened, with Blake (55th minute) and Tyrone Peachey (59th minute) each beating some flimsy Knights defence to take the score out to 18-6.Penrith continued to dominate the Knights up the middle of the ruck and made them pay on the edges, with Dallin Watene-Zelezniak scoring a second-half double and Josh Mansour scoring his second as the siren sounded.The Panthers have now won four out of their past five matches and have leapfrogged the Titans into seventh spot on 26 points.AAPlast_img read more

Arsenal is set in Boateng

first_imgThey already signed Saliba in summer, and although he is expected to return from his assignment to Saint-Etienne next season, the 18-year-old Frenchman takes experience outside before catching gallons in the Emirates Stadium. Arteta wants an immediate solution and for that you have to comb the market. There has been talk of Dayot Upamecano, the French central of the RB Leipzig for which they could pay up to 47 million euros. However, it seems a complicated and expensive option, so option B would be to look for a guarantee center even though it is not young. Sky sports talk about the possibility of signing Jerome Boateng of Bayern Munich. Premier League* Data updated as of January 3, 2020 Bundesliga* Data updated as of January 3, 2020 17 Arsenal continues its search for a plant for the winter market. The defense has been one of the weak points of the set gunner in this bad start to the season and Mikel Arteta He wants to change that from the first moment. The title behind is usually formed by David Luiz and Sokratis, who are 32 and 31 years old respectively, so they should soon seek a replacement of guarantees, especially after the long-term injury of Calum Chambers. He does not enter the age range they were looking for (he is 31 years old), but it would cost around 15 million euros and he would be willing to leave the Bavarian club immediately. It would not be the first German center that militates in Arsenal. In fact, Shkodran Mustafi, who tried to exit Emery, continues on the roster despite criticism for its poor performance. Per Mertesacker It is another example, since both have made much of their career in London.His participation in Bayern Munich (which does not go through its best moment) this season has been intermittent, since Niklas Süle Y Lucas Hernandez they are the a priori starting players to form a partner in the rear (even David Alaba is ahead of him on numerous occasions). However, the injuries of both have contributed to Boateng having more minutes than expected after the signing of the French.In any case, it seems clear that Arsenal will go for a central during this month of January to try to overcome in the classification. Options will not be missing.last_img read more

Heavyweights defend a riddled Ernesto Valverde

first_imgThat he Barça He lives in a state of nerves that leaves a hornet as a spa was checked minutes after the Blaugrana team fell in the semifinal of the Super Cup Spain in Jeddah by losing by 2-3 a game that the Barcelona had won and that the Athletic He snatched it in an epic final arreón. As usual in the Blaugrana house, the shots started at the first and in the center of the target was the face of Ernesto Valverde. From various media he began to speculate on his dismissal, although minutes later they rectified, but in the mixed zone with the players and in the press conference of the technician he shot himself against the coach.Ernesto Valverde will continue to lead the team until the end of the season and there will be no change in the technical direction in the remainder of the season unless there is a huge collapse of the team that, for now, is still a leader in The league, is rated for eighths of Champions and while it is true that he fell in the Super Cup, it is not less than 70% of the game, the Blaugrana curdled one of his best performances so far this year.Then you have to take into account the importance of the competition. If Valverde did not fall after two catastrophes in Champions in Rome and Liverpool, it doesn’t seem logical to brush it for losing the Spanish Super Cup in Arabia. Of course, take for granted that the season will start another technician. Nothing new about the plan planned by the manager and coach, on the other hand.Maybe the media noise caused by the defeat led to the heavyweights of the team changing their plans. After the game nobody wanted to talk, and how much Messi how Luis Suarez They decided to appear in a mixed zone to temper bagpipes and defend the project, it is not a detail that should be overlooked before the rain of criticism that their technician received at that time. In the dressing room everything is heard and those who send in there wanted to show their heads for their boss. The Uruguayan was the clearest of the two: “It is not a situation of ours, it is a situation of the club, but the coach has no fault. They are mistakes and distractions of ours in specific moments. expensive, in the matches you win, lose or draw you have to always do self-criticism. Learn from mistakes. The matches are here to correct you and you don’t have to repeat mistakes. “Messi also loaded inks on self-criticism and he lamented punctual attitudes of the team, which he put before him as responsible for the defeat ahead of the coach, although the Argentine acknowledged that in the face of such losses “it is normal to talk, We are a strong team to get him through. We have escaped a title and we have to look forward. We have to be closer than ever. ““We had control of the game for 80 minutes, attacking all the time, but we left the game in children’s mistakes that generated cons when they were dead. We had to have closed the result before, We continue working and trying to improve we will prepare the next game and the second round. Although we are not playing good games, we are still first in the league, “he said.The club tried to stop any kind of speculation about the future of Valverde and William love, Director of Institutional Relations He came to the forefront just after finishing the game to ensure that “we are thinking about the game. It has bothered us a lot to lose, but we continue. This is very long. It is the first competition of the year, in the others we are well positioned and continue Go ahead. There is full confidence in the team, the players and the coach. “The team plans to land in Barcelona around three in the afternoon and will not meet again until next Friday after the free weekend that the coach has granted him.last_img read more
