Dickson has patience of a Saint

first_imgLee Dickson believes patience will be key when Northampton resume their European Champions Cup campaign against Treviso in Italy on Saturday. “It’s the beautiful thing about this competition, how competitive it is and how it has turned out now. It’s more competitive than it ever was, so you have to be on your game.” Liam Williams, Samson Lee and Jake Ball, who all featured in the Wales team that beat the Springboks last Saturday, return to Scarlets colours for their Pool Three appointment with Ulster in Belfast on Saturday. And the Ospreys are boosted by Wales quartet Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb, Scott Baldwin and Alun-Wyn Jones all featuring in the starting line-up against Liberty Stadium visitors and Pool Five leaders Racing Metro. “The right performance on Saturday can really open this pool up at the halfway stage, but we know it’s a big challenge,” Ospreys head coach Steve Tandy said. “We’ve talked all season long about pursuing excellence, and it’s on days like this that the one and two per cents can make a big difference.” Sunday’s Champions Cup action, meanwhile, sees English trio Leicester, Harlequins and Wasps all facing key encounters. After losing to the Scarlets in October, Pool Three hopefuls Leicester cannot afford to come unstuck against reigning European champions Toulon at Welford Road, and Wasps are already on the Pool Two ropes ahead of their trip to Castres due to successive defeats when they faced Leinster and Harlequins earlier this season. Leinster visit Quins for a first meeting since the infamous ‘Bloodgate’ scandal game five years ago when the English club faked a blood injury to wing Tom Williams in an attempt to get injured goalkicker Nick Evans back on the pitch. Leinster won the quarter-final clash 6-5, but the fall-out for Quins was significant as then rugby director Dean Richards landed a three-year worldwide coaching ban and the club received a £260,000 fine. The stakes will again be high at the Twickenham Stoop on Sunday, with both teams making the Pool Two running, locked on eight points each. Pool Four sees in-form leaders Glasgow visiting four-time European champions Toulouse, with the winners at Stade Ernest Wallon knowing they can take charge of a group that also includes Bath and Montpellier. Press Association “They are a big physical team, and they are very proud, especially at home. Italian teams are always like that. “It will be a very tough game, so we have to front up to the challenge. It’s all about patience and playing your own way and outworking them. Hopefully, you get your rewards in the final 20 minutes of each half.” Northampton are without star wing George North, who missed Wales’ autumn series finale against South Africa last weekend due to concussion, but returning England internationals Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes and Tom Wood all feature among the replacements. Aviva Premiership rivals Sale Sharks and Saracens meet in a Pool One encounter at the AJ Bell Stadium, with Saracens’ England prop Mako Vunipola making his first start of the season after recovering from injury and Owen Farrell featuring as inside centre outside a half-back combination of Charlie Hodgson and Richard Wigglesworth. But whatever happens in the Saracens game, twice European champions Munster will edge closer to a quarter-final place from Pool One if they beat Thomond Park visitors Clermont Auvergne on Saturday. The Irish heavyweights would also reach an impressive milestone – their 100th win in European competition – if they back up October victories over Sale and Saracens. “It’s non-negotiable – you have just got to win your home games,” Munster skipper Peter O’Mahony said. “Fear drives you on in European rugby. You have the first two games, you think you’re doing all right, and then all of a sudden it’s back-to-back games against Clermont. Saints recovered from an opening weekend loss to Racing Metro in October by beating Welsh challengers the Ospreys, and they will be expected to remain on a quarter-final course from Pool Five by claiming quickfire home and away victories over Treviso during the next eight days. “You can’t afford to lose more than one game if you want to finish as pool winners,” scrum-half Dickson said. last_img read more

Shreyas Iyer reveals how he earned his entry into the Indian team

Powered by Firework The number four position of Team India’s batting order was a variable spot among a number of batsmen, with prolonged debates and discussions on which run machine should be made permanent for the position. However, its now a territory marked by none other than Shreyas Iyer- the youngster who has sealed his no. 4 spot of the team thanks to consequent spectacular performances. However, getting picked for the spot wasn’t an easy task for Iyer- as he reveals what particularly grabbed the attention of the team selectors.Advertisement Image Courtesy: The Hindu/AFPIn a latest episode of Spicy Pitch, a web talk show by Cricbuzz, Shreyas Iyer recalled how he didn’t earn his place in the Indian squad, despite performing great in the Ranji trophy.“When I scored 1300 runs in the 2nd (domestic) season, I wasn’t picked in India team, where I was expected to be picked. I could see other players being selected and going beyond me, even though their performance wasn’t as great as me,” the Mumbai cricket team star said in the show.Advertisement Falling behind his domestic teammates in the pecking order, the 25 year old took the advice of the selectors, who informed him that Iyer’s minus point was his aggressiveness.He continued: “I felt I should go and ask the selectors what’s wrong in me. So, I went and asked, they said, ‘you’re over aggressive player. At the highest level, if someone bowls a good bowl to you, you won’t be able to survive at that stage’.”Advertisement “So, I thought, ‘let’s play the way they want you to, and try and see how it helps. So, I realised, if I stay longer, if I take some time… after that I became more consistent’,” Iyer added.At the end, following the valuable words of the selectors, Iyer finally made his debut for the Men in Blues in 2017, in a T20 against New Zealand. However, it wasn’t as exciting as the player himself thought it would be.“To be honest, I wasn’t that emotional, when I got the India cap. I felt I should have gotten it way before,” he concluded.Iyer has made 18 ODI and 22 T20 appearances for Team India, and has been brilliant in the recent Australia and New Zealand series, which has made his spot in the team sealed for the coming years.Also read-How Rahul Dravid reacted when Shreyas Iyer hit a last over six in a four-day match!Jasprit Bumrah urges India to support to PM Modi’s 9pm – 9 minute candle light show of strength Advertisementlast_img read more
