plenty of time to recover but then start to prepare for the Cats

He is the secret weapon Cronulla hope will finally deliver them a maiden NRL premiership. Nike Sock Dart Bleu .Six months after revealing his boredom in the centres, Sharks star Jack Bird is thrilled by the possibility of being bombed in-field in next weeks preliminary final.Coach Shane Flanagan made the shock decision to bench starting halfback Chad Townsend late in their qualifying final win over Canberra, shifting Bird into the halves in the clutch.What has been overlooked was his initial plan to bring bench centre Gerard Beale onto the field late in the game and inject Birds attacking play at lock.That was the plan for Flanno, to put me at lock when them big boys are getting tired and try to beat them on their inside shoulders, Bird told AAP.It was something I was looking forward to actually, just to be around the ball a little bit more and get myself more involved.Unfortunately it didnt work out, but I went to five-eighth and thats the second best option.The NSW State of Origin representative hasnt played a minute in the midfield at club level this year, but is salivating at the thought of making the surprise move in a grand final qualifier.Flanagan has enjoyed the luxury of having a specialist centre in Beale or Ricky Leutele on his bench for most of this season, and could look again at using Birds thrust around the ruck.Bird, who was in a battle with Ben Barba for the fullback spot in the pre-season, concedes he has heard the calls for him to eventually find his best position in the forwards.But he hinted that it could happen sooner, against North Queensland/Brisbane next week.Ive heard a few talks around saying thats where Ill probably end up, playing lock. I played lock when I was younger. Its something I wouldnt mind doing again, he said.The way I play footy, I gotta be around the ball a little bit more. The more I get the ball in my hands, the better Ill be.The 21-year-old admitted he has had a number of discussions with Flanagan during the year on how to get more involved during matches.I havent spoken to him about playing lock, but Ive spoken to him about swinging on the other side of the field and that kind of stuff, he said.But its hard at centre - youve got to stick to your edges. But hopefully it happens somewhere down the track, but Im not too sure when. Nike Air Max 97 Pas Cher Femme . In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. Nike Presto Homme Pas Cher . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. http://www.prestonike2018.fr/nike-air-max-97.html . PAUL, Minn. A remarkable race to AFL finals ended with a frenzied finish at the MCG on Sunday that has only heightened expectations of something special in September.Six clubs, including triple reigning premiers Hawthorn, started the final round with a chance of snatching the minor premiership or missing out on the top four entirely.The Hawks posted a one-point win over Collingwood at the MCG on Sunday, setting up a mouth-watering qualifying final against rivals Geelong at the same venue.Sydney and Greater Western Sydney will meet in the other qualifying final, while Adelaide and West Coast will host elimination games against North Melbourne and Western Bulldogs respectively.History dictates only the top-four sides can win the flag - it has been that way since the introduction of the current system.But the advent of a pre-finals bye and final-round ladder logjam suggests it could be different this year.The finals series will be really close this year. I reckon probably anyone in the top eight can steal it if they play well for a month, Hawks midfielder Isaac Smith said.It should be a pretty interesting finals series for the fans.Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson suggested it would be foolish to dismiss any of the top-eight sides, pointing to how eighth-placed North won through to an elimination final in 2015.Ladder positions (being up for grabs in the final round) indicate its pretty close, Clarkson said.Were of the view that every side in the top eight is a dangerous opposition.On aany given day they can play some outstanding footy. Nike Sock Dart Noir. Its going to be harder (to win the premiership) from fifth to eighth but it doesnt mean it cant be done. Particularly this year when theres a little bit of a curveball in terms of the (post-season bye).Clarkson indicated he would try to keep things as normal as possible during the upcoming week.The only difference is were not playing a game next week, he said.Well be pretty low key early in the week and give our players plenty of time to recover but then start to prepare for the Cats.Premiership players Ben Stratton and Ben McEvoy are likely to return for the Hawks against Geelong.Plenty of other clubs will be making some big selection calls over the next fortnight - on account of both form or fitness.The Swans will surrender home-ground advantage against GWS but boast plenty of confidence after five straight wins, the latest being a 113-point demolition of Richmond.Geelong were resounding 111-point winners over Melbourne in the final round of the season, while the Giants downed North by 37 points on Saturday.Western Bulldogs, who travel to Perth and face the Eagles in week one of the finals, have plenty to think about after a shock 20-point loss to Fremantle on Sunday.The Crows were also far from convincing in round 23, suffering a 29-point loss to the Eagles at Adelaide Oval. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
