'Formula One' theory for NRL's carnage

  'Formula One' theory for NRL's carnage PAUL GALLEN: NRL players train so hard now they're almost becoming like Formula One cars, for better and worse. They are so finely tuned, almost to the point of being brittle. They seem to break more easily. They are so fit, so strong, so fast, that when something goes wrong, it really goes wrong. © Getty Josh Dugan of the Sharks is treated for a head injury against the Cowboys in Round Four. A Formula One car might be a high-tech, cutting-edge machine - but if it hits the wall, it's going to smash apart.

The 31-year-old had 42 saves and a 2.74 ERA en route to his seventh All-Star selection last season, his third with the Red Sox after previous stints with the Padres and Braves. He owns a career 1.91 ERA and ranks 14th all-time in MLB saves with 333. Ben Zobrist remains on the restricted list and Cubs manager Joe Maddon said last week he has to prepare for the utility man staying on the list for the remainder of the season.

In 1979, the three Briley brothers and an accomplice, Duncan Eric Meekins, began the seven-month series of random killings that terrified the city and surrounding region.[2]. The brothers then entered her apartment and robbed it of valuables. Five days later, on October 5, just two blocks from the Briley home on 4th Avenue, 75-year-old Blanche Page and her 59-year-old boarder Charles Garner were murdered by the brothers . Page was bludgeoned to death while Garner was fatally assaulted and stabbed to death with various weapons, which included a baseball bat, five knives, a pair of scissors, and a fork.

There have been some great brothers in the history of rugby league.

Some were teammates, others were opponents.

In round six this season, another chapter in the story of NRL brothers will be written, when Jayden and Blayke Brailey face off for the first time.

The pair came through the ranks together in the Cronulla competition, and both made their debuts for their local club - but at the end of 2019, Jayden moved on to the Newcastle Knights.

2020 was meant to be a fresh start for the 24-year old, but unfortunately he ruptured his ACL in just the second game of the season.

The organization on Sunday pleaded its case to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to deny the filings — albeit unofficially. Of course, this could all be a big ruse to get more people to call him by the nickname, which honestly would be the most Brailey brothers eyeing off first ever clash .

That left a huge hole in the Knights outfit, but it also robbed us of the opportunity to see him face off against younger brother Blayke.

On Friday night, that will become a reality - and it's already on the mind of the Cronulla hooker.

“That was definitely the first game I looked up and circled," Blayke told SEN's Breakfast With Vossy.

"We don’t have to wait around too long to verse each other. I’m still at home, so I’ve got four weeks to convert my parents to go for the Sharks and not the Newcastle Knights.

"I’m buttering them up and cooking dinner for them every night.

“Growing up he was the person I looked up to. Everything he did in rugby league and outside of footy, I want to be exactly like that. It’s good to have that sort of role model and for him to get in the NRL was something I really enjoyed.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have decided to have a rematch of the second-leg of the CAF Champions League final between Esperance and Wydad Casablanca. The verdict was announced on Wednesday after an Emergency Executive Committee was called by CAF President Ahmad Ahmad. Players of Esperance have been ordered to return their medals and trophy with the second-leg to be replayed at a neutral venue on a yet to be determined date. The encounter will take place after the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, which starts on June 21 and ends July 19.

The Astros have to be absolutely exhausted after their two games on Thursday and Friday, but they are two wins richer so they can't be complaining too much. One day after defeating the Mariners in 14 innings in Seattle, the Astros (44-21) flew back to Houston and defeated the Orioles in 11, but they got a little help in the process. The throw to the plate was in plenty of time to grab him too, but there is a reason the Orioles are 19-44 this season, not a ton is going right for them. And on this play, it simply came down to catching the baseball, which as a catcher, Chance Sisco has some experience in.

"I could pick his brain, get little tips and tricks with my position since we play the same position. For him to make the NRL and achieve so much at such a young age, it is really inspiring for me."

Jayden made his debut in 2017 for the Sharks, and played 70 games for the club before moving on. Blayke joined him in 2019, and has since played 36 games for his local club.

The pair both played their junior football for the Aquinas Colts in Menai - but as Jayden recalls, his time in the juniors was nowhere near as successful as his younger sibling.

“I had a great time playing for the Aquinas Colts out in Menai and growing up around there. I probably didn’t have as much as joy as Blayke – I think he won 15 comps in a row out there," he said.

"Unfortunately, I didn’t get to win a premiership. Dad actually coached Blayke’s side and his side was stacked – he stood back and waited to coach the better team.

"It probably made Blayke and I the players we are today – I had a great time out there.

Schwartz opened the scoring at 4:46 of the first period with an opportunistic backhander past a prone Corey Crawford in the Blackhawks' goal. The Blues forward then scored his and the game's second goal at 5:59 of the second period. As clinical as his first goal was, Schwartz harnessed a bit of magic to double his tally on the night. After receiving a long pass off the boards from goaltender Jake Allen, Schwartz raced in alone on Crawford and froze the Chicago goalie with a shoulder feint before rounding him and firing into the wide-open net. Schwartz capped off his hat trick with an empty-netter, firing the

“We shared a room growing up out at Barden Ridge. We used to always play tackle footy out on the trampoline in the backyard.

"I remember Blayke was a big Wests Tigers fan and I was a big Roosters fan – I remember we went to the 2004 grand final between Roosters and Bulldogs. I converted Blayke over to follow the Roosters. I ended up going home in tears after the Bulldogs won.

"We always loved footy growing up, and playing in the NRL has always been a massive dream.

"A couple of years ago to play together and especially in Blayke’s NRL debut, it was probably one of the most memorable games I will ever have in my career."

While Jayden was starved of success in the juniors, Blayke thrived alongside the likes of Kyle Flanagan and Bronson Xerri for the Colts.

The 22-year old fancies himself the better-looking brother, but both of them admitted that Jayden got the brains in the family.

All eyes will be on them in round six when they run out to face each other - especailly now that Jayden is co-captain of the Newcastle outfit.

He knows that the pressure will be on when he faces his brother and his former teammates for the first time.

“I’m sure there will be plenty of sledging – not just from Blayke, but from the whole team," he said.

"I’ve obviously still got a lot of mates there at Cronulla, and I dare say I will be copping it left, right and centre.

"I reckon I will end up converting mum and dad over."

Warm waters draw sharks off Israel's Mediterranean coast .
Dozens of sharks gathered Tuesday in warm waters of the Mediterranean near an Israeli power plant, drawing sightseers in what has become an annual occurence. The sharks gather each year near where the power plant's hot water outlet gushes into the Mediterranean Sea. The Israel Nature and Parks Authority warned both amateur and professional divers against swimming with the creatures."The interaction with sharks is neither predictable or controllable, and in recent days there has also been a change in the sharks' behaviour," the authority wrote.
