#1 g card, I have not focused on that von riluowanying123 03.08.2018 13:35

The three big prizes are only given out in August, September and October, so is it too early to take any notice of the Super League table? Well, I guess it depends if youre a half-full or half-empty person.Most clubs have 18 Super League games remaining and while an optimistic fan might say their team have the potential to pick up 36 points, the reality is that your team will need a minimum of 20 points to finish in the top eight when we enter the next stage of the competition. But that looks a long way off for some teams. It is habits and mindset, not time or games, that become the problem to the teams in the lower half of the league table.Easter is a hugely significant milestone in the season and teams need to stay in contention to give themselves a chance when the weather starts to improve. Go on then: If Widnes finish in the top four I will be their mascot for a match! Phil Clarke The champions have started the season in a similar way to how Chelsea began the Premier League last August. Just one win in the opening five games puts them under huge pressure this week. The Giants currently sit above the Rhinos on points difference and it is unusual to see the most consistent team of the last three seasons struggle as much as they have.Huddersfields performance against Hull KR impressed me and I am certain they will win more than 50 per cent of their remaining games. Next up they have Catalans, Wakefield and Salford and I think that they will pick up six points. However, it is the top of the league that intrigues me most. Widnes and Warrington have in effect swapped places with Leeds and Huddersfield. How have they done it? Barrie McDermott has been impressed by Widnes performances in 2016 Well you could say the Wolves have bought better players. They have the two favourites to win the Man of Steel in Chris Sandow and Kurt Gidley. New players like Tom Lineham and Joe Westerman have added to the squads ability, plus you could argue that they underachieved in 2015 and are more where they should be this campaign.But how do you explain that the Vikings are top of the table? Playing one more than most of the others helps but their squad of players has remained virtually the same. Stefan Marsh, Corey Thompson, Denis Betts and Joe Mellor look ahead to Widnes trip to Wigan on Thursday Widnes have doubled the number of league points after six rounds compared with last year but perhaps more impressively, they have played the best rugby and provided the most entertainment. Admittedly, two of their wins have been against the bottom two teams but they have also beaten Leeds and Huddersfield in convincing fashion. Those wins did come when their opponents had several injuries but timing is everything in life and they had theirs spot on when they beat Hull last week. Sky Live: Wigan v Widnes Joe Mellor says Super League leaders Widnes will be out to make a statement The Vikings have now scored 39 tries in six games and in Corey Thompson they possess a player who could finish the season with the top try scorer award. In addition to him, they have Chris Houston in the second row and Setaimata Sa, but none of those players were big-money signings and I suppose you have to give credit to the coach.From what I see and hear, along with Daryl Powell, Denis Betts is the best coach in the competition and the teams improvement is a reflection of his ability, intelligence and experience. However, their game against Wigan on Thursday will be by far their hardest challenge of the season and perhaps the first time they have faced a top-four team with a healthy squad to choose from. The Warriors will be too strong for the Vikings and we will see them as a mid-table team.I am scared of making any predictions about where Widnes will finish in 2016. I have seen what Gary Lineker said about Leicester City and dont want to strip down to my underwear! I still think that if they finish in the top eight after 23 rounds they will have done remarkably well but I am still not convinced that they will be able to do that.Go on then: If Widnes finish in the top four I will be their mascot for a match!Join the Men United March Join the Sky Sports rugby league team as they walk from York City FC to Elland Road One of the greatest things about working with Sky Sports is the opportunity to meet people from other sports, to share stories with them and learn from them. Well, next week gives me the chance to do that in a different way. On Tuesday, March 22, Brian Carney, Bill Arthur, Barrie McDermott and I will be joining Jeff Stelling from Soccer Saturday on the Men United March.We are linking up with Jeff for one of the 10 days in which he will walk from Hartlepool United to Wembley, and you can join us too. Its all in aid of Prostate Cancer UK, a charity that the rugby league department at Sky have supported for the last four years after some of the team were affected by it.You may have noticed some of us wearing the little badge on screen. Its called the Man of Men, and the entire Leeds Rhinos squad wore them when they attended the Sports Personality awards at the end of last year - with Kevin Sinfield clinching the runners-up award. Jeff Stelling is walking 10 marathons in 10 days Anyone can take part in this great walk, you just need to register at www.menunitedmarch.org. If you come along you can talk rugby with us, football with Chris Kamara, Charlie Nicholas and Ray Wilkins, or just have a laugh up front with Jeff and the other walkers. Sinfield and Eddie Hemmings aim to be at Elland Road as we complete the 29-mile trek from York. It is a rugby section of this walk as we pass through the home of last terms domestic treble winners.It is a long way I know but its for a great cause and it will be a great laugh. We get to stroll through some beautiful Yorkshire countryside and listen to some stories that dont get told on television.If you cant make the walk but want to support Jeff and the rest of us then visit www.menunitedmarch.org or text JEFF to 70004 to donate £3.

When Kim Pegula and her husband, Terry, purchased the Buffalo Bills in 2014, she became one of a handful of female owners in the NFL. The Pegulas also own the Buffalo Sabres.We talked to Kim about her perspective on the challenges women face in a male-dominated industry, and what women can do to position themselves for future inclusion and success. We also asked her about the Bills?hiring of Kathryn Smith, who is the first full-time female coach in the NFL.This interview has been edited for length.espnW: What are some of the challenges youve faced being a woman in the male-dominated sports ownership world? Are you treated any differently than your husband?Kim Pegula: Football is itself is so male-dominated because all of the scouts, coaches and even the general manager played football, so theyve been around it all of their lives. Its hard coming into an organization when, as a female, you dont have that experience. Thats the hardest part for me. The business side of things came easier. And I was pleasantly surprised, coming into the NFL, to see quite a few women involved either at the league level or higher up, or even just ownership.As for Terry and I, all of the other owners and the league itself treat us both equally. They encourage me to be more active and to get involved in committees. [Laughs] Actually, they ask me more than they ask Terry.espnW: Is there a pipeline of women for coaching roles??KP: I dont know of a pipeline offhand, but I think the NFL and every team is a little bit more conscious now because of Jen Welter being the first assistant coach for Arizona, and now with Kathryn [Smith] being hired here in Buffalo. I think theres more awareness of that now.When Rex brought up hiring Kathryn, we said, OK. Not because she was a female, but because she already had the knowledge and the experience, and she was a good fit. She put herself in a position to advance, and Rex wasnt afraid to go that way. I think were going to see more of that as the league continues to evolve.Kathryn just seemed like the obvious choice. It didnt dawn on me, because as far as I was concerned, Rex was hiring her because she was the best qualified and someone he thought would be the best fit for the job -- not because she was a woman. But then my phone started blowing up and thats when I realized that, yeah, she was a female coach and the first official one. And its great. Shes handling it like a champ and thats all we can ask of her.espnW: Will the recent Rooney Rule announcement help elevate women in cooaching roles (as opposed to front-office roles)? How can women get into more operational roles?KP: I think the Rooney Rule is great because in sports, we get stuck in the tradition of what weve always done.dddddddddddd. So, the Rooney Rule made people open up to diversity. I do think it will help. But at the end of the day, its about production. Those types of initiatives are great for opening doors, but its going to be up the individual to produce and maintain those positions.Like any industry, its about networking and who you know and putting yourself into situations where you can create an opportunity. The more women can do to build experience and a skill set in a particular area, the better their chances. I dont think it does anyone any good just to hire someone because they are a female. They have to have the qualifications and skill set to substantiate the hire, and make the gender a non-factor -- thats the best thing women can do.espnW: Whats the biggest thing holding women back in the NFL, in team offices, at the league level, or in coaching?KP: I think its lack of experience. Women dont have the same access to experience as men do growing up. Theres flag football for girls, or you hear a story about a girl playing youth football, but in general we dont have the experience to qualify us to get in the coaching door or top-level management. Its going to be hard to climb that ladder because of that. I cant speak for Kathryn, but she took advantage of her opportunities, focused on a particular area, and she knows her football. It didnt happen overnight for her.Do I think were going to have a female head coach someday? Its going to take a while to get to that point.espnW: Is the state of women in the NFL on your radar, or something you think about? If so, what kind of difference do you try to make in your day-to-day life?KP: From a league perspective, the female market is a growing one. As a business, you are always focused on where your growth is and where you can have the biggest impact. I think the league and every team is looking to grow that market and sustain it.As far as saying, Hey, this is what I want to do for women, and thats my calling card, I have not focused on that because Im still so new to this. But I do think its important. Theres a lot more access now that allows women to get involved in sports that we didnt have back when I was growing up.
