Will Minson is the old Bulldog learning new AFL tricks as he tries to force his way back into the senior team.The 31-year-old is on the verge of a recall as the Western Bulldogs prepare for Saturday nights big match against Sydney at the SCG.Minson has not played in the AFL since last years elimination final loss to Adelaide.He has languished in the VFL as teammates such as Tom Campbell and Jordan Roughead have shared the ruck duties.But coach Luke Beveridge is impressed with Minsons form, saying he has shown some form in attack as well as rucking well.Beveridge is admamant that his AFL ruckmen must also be dangerous as resting tall forwards.As soon as we feel like he deserves a spot in front of someone, well play him, Beveridge said.To his credit, you can always teach an old dog new tricks and hes learning a few.Hell come in very soon, if its not this week.Saturdays twilight match will be the third time this season that the Bulldogs have gone on the road and one of the leagues toughest away matches comes at a crucial time.The Bulldogs suffered the worst loss of the year so far in round 13, with Geelong opening them up by 57 points.It left the Bulldogs a game outside the top four as they come off their mid-season bye, while the Swans are second and will go top if they win.The Bulldogs have shown mixed interstate form this season - a 25-point loss to GWS in round nine, but then an outstanding three-point win over Port Adelaide two games ago.The last time they played Sydney was in round five last year, also at the SCG, when the Bulldogs stirring four-point win was an early indicator of their re-emergence.Meanwhile, Minson is among five players in the selection mix this week, with defender Easton Wood certain to return from a hamstring injury.Dashing half-back Jason Johannisen could come straight back into the senior side, despite his nasty hamstring tear sidelining him since round four.Tom Boyd and Koby Stevens are on the verge of recalls, but will have to convince the Bulldogs this week that they are over their injury problems. Hydro Flask 32 Oz Mint . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate. Hydro Flask 16 Oz Wide Mouth . Ryan Garbutt had a goal and two assists as Dallas snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Hydro Flask 32 Oz Wide Mouth .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. Cheap Hydro Flask 40 oz Wide Mouth Flamingo Water Bottle .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Team first. That has been the marching orders for the U.S. womens gymnastics team since its five members were selected in July. Focus on the team competition, and the rest -- the all-around medals, the inevitable superlatives and the individual medals -- will be icing.Tuesday night, the cake finished baking. The Americans -- who dubbed themselves the Final Five in honor of U.S. team coordinator Martha Karolyis final season -- defended their 2012 gold medal, winning by more than eight points over the Russians. U.S. team captain Aly Raisman and 2012 all-around champ Gabby Douglas became the first American women to win two team gold medals in gymnastics.Its time to slather on the icing.During qualification on Sunday, every member of the U.S. team qualified for at least one of the event finals, which will take place over three days during the next week. The U.S. will send two women to each event final except for vault, where three-time world champ Simone Biles, who will also compete on floor and beam, will be the lone U.S. representative. Raisman and Biles also qualified into the all-around final, which takes place Thursday.The key now is getting enough rest, Raisman, 22, said after Tuesdays team final. Thats the key for me. Well have the morning off and a quick workout tomorrow and then its just preparing and staying calm.It is conceivable -- no, probable -- that the U.S. women will leave Rio with every gold medal on the table, and perhaps four silver medals, to boot. Biles has the very real possibility of nabbing five gold medals and finally putting to rest the debate over whether she is the greatest gymnast of all time. (Spoiler alert: She is.)If Madison Kocian and Gabby Douglas perform the flawless bar routines they landed Tuesday, they will go 1-2 in that event. Biles and Raisman should do the same on floor, and Biles is the vault favorite.Laurie Hernandez, who has been as consistent as any gymnast in Rio, could conceivably give Biles a run on beam, especially if Biles falters. Biles finished .67 ahead of Hernandez on beam in the team final, but Hernadezs Sunday qualification score of 15.366 would have been good enough to beat Biles 15.3 from Tuesday. Hernandez has five days off before Mondays beam finals, while Biles will compete in the all-around and vault first.So while its a long shot, the topic of a Hernandez upset on beam is at least open for debate.I get what yooure saying, but Im not going to tell her that.dddddddddddd The less that she knows, the better, said Maggie Haney, Hernandezs coach. I saw that she is going to be last on beam, but she doesnt know that yet, either. Thatll be good. Well be in the back gym warming up and shell come out two routines before hers and hop up and she wont know anything. Shes young, her eyes get big, and her head gets crazy. I dont want her to worry about any of that.For all five women, the next week will be about staying focused and not allowing extra energy to seep out of their systems. Although Biles seems as well built and mentally solid as any athlete for the rigors of Olympic competition, even she has admitted in the past to competing on tired legs. Even more important is to make sure shes not competing with a tired mind.Its easy, really, because you take it one day at a time, Biles said. We train so hard for this all year, and thats what we are here to do.Its a script Biles rarely deviates from, but when she and her coach, Aimee Boorman, say they take it one meet, one routine, one skill at a time, they arent being coy. Boorman doesnt allow Biles to get ahead of the moment, so until team qualification was over, they didnt talk about the team final. Until the team gold medal was placed around Biles neck, she didnt let her mind wander to Thursdays all-around competition.When Biles walks into the Rio Arena for each days competition, she doesnt allow herself to look at the Olympic rings. That would make these competitions feel special, and if Karolyi has taught her athletes anything, it is that every competition routine should feel like every routine in the gym.Still, its got to be hard not to imagine, if just for a minute, what it will be like to stand on the medal stand and fulfill individual goals while cementing this team as the greatest ever and the first to win six Olympic gold medals.We saw it happen in prelims, obviously, but we just try to focus on doing our routines the best we can, Raisman said. If you get too caught up in thinking about winning, youre not thinking about doing one skill at a time. Were trying to stay in our bubble. We know we have a lot of pressure on us, but we are making sure we stay grounded and humble and keep working hard. We still have more to do.
