Joe Launchbury has been ruled out of the remaining two matches of Englands autumn series after being found guilty of kicking Fijis Asaeli Tikoirotuma.Launchbury will miss the clashes with Argentina and Australia after his boot connected with the head of the Fijian outside centre in the 42nd minute of a record 58-15 victory at Twickenham.The act was deemed reckless rather than deliberate and the low end sanction for the offence of a four-week ban was reduced to two weeks due to Launchburys admission of guilt, his previous clean disciplinary record and good conduct at the hearing.Launchbury appeared before a three-man independent disciplinary committee in London and accepted he had committed an act of foul play that would have warranted a red card.The Wasps captain is free to play from December 5, two days after Australia conclude the autumn program at Twickenham, but has the right to appeal.While Launchbury can have few complaints with the sanction -- the kick left Tikoirotuma in significant discomfort -- his absence is a major personal blow given his strong form against South Africa and Fiji.The injury-enforced absence of Maro Itoje and George Kruis offered Launchbury the chance to revise Eddie Jones second row hierarchy by resurrecting his lock partnership with Courtney Lawes.His work-rate and impact on the opening two matches of the Old Mutual Wealth Series had served to illustrate Englands extraordinary depth in the second row, but he must now resign himself to the role of spectator.It is a less of a blow to his country, however, as fortuitous timing has seen Kruis make a rapid recovery from ankle surgery and he is available to start Saturdays showdown with the Pumas.Adding to the number of options in the position is Dave Attwood, who has overcome the knee problem that forced him to miss the rout of Fiji and the Bath forward is in contention for selection.Kruis is set to start against Argentina alongside Lawes and would resume calling the line-out.George has worked really hard on his rehab and hes done really well to get back so quickly, forwards coach Steve Borthwick said.Hes been around in the later stages of his rehab and its testament to his character that hes been able to get back from his injury so quickly. Hes in contention for Argentina.Jones is scheduled to name his team on Thursday morning and with the composition of his second row decided by Launchburys suspension and Kruis return, his focus up front will turn to openside where Teimana Harrison is likely to make way for Tom Wood.England are expected to revert to their first choice starting XV against Argentina, who finished bottom of last summers Rugby Championship, with Mike Brown returning at full-back.The wings are fiercely contested, however, with Jonny May, Semesa Rokoduguni, Marland Yarde and Elliot Daly competing for the two slots available.Meanwhile, Borthwick admits it would be an honour and privilege to act as forwards coach on the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand next summer.Head coach Warren Gatland has already held talks with Borthwick, but his appointment has yet to be finalised.

Cheap Larry Bird Jersey . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Perth Wildcats coach Trevor Gleeson has vowed to weed out his underperforming stars after watching his team crash to their third straight NBL loss on Thursday night.Wildcats forward Matt Knight suffered what appeared to be a serious hip injury during the upset 90-75 loss to Brisbane at Perth Arena.It was Perths third home loss this season, and leaves them precariously placed with a 6-6 record heading into a string of away matches.Wildcats players and coaches held a heart-to-heart meeting earlier this week in a bid to clear the air and get their season back on track.But the players came out flat against Brisbane, and trailed 49-29 at halftime.Gleeson didnt mince his words after the loss, declaring he will bench his stars if they dont lift their act.Weve got too many passengers, Gleeson said.And weve got to weed those guys out, and play the guys that are playing at the level required.We need our senior players to lead by example. Our backs are against the wall without a question.Weve got to find a way to get it done and to support each other. Theres not enough team work in that.Weve got a hard battle again. Were going to find out some home truths very shortly.When asked how he could weed out so many players without bringing anyone else in, Gleeson replied: Well just play the DPs (development players).Mason Bragg deserveed to play a lot of minutes.ddddddddddddHe would have played even longer if he hadnt got a smack in the mouth at the end.Import Jaron Johnson failed to fire against the Bullets, scoring just six points in 18 minutes of court time.But he wasnt alone, with only Casey Prather (22 points) able to hold his head up high.Knight was stretchered off the court and sent off for an X-ray after injuring his left hip while falling to the floor in the third quarter.The 31-year-old has battled shoulder issues for the past year, and Gleeson hopes the latest injury isnt serious.If Knight is ruled out for Saturdays clash with the 36ers in Adelaide, the Wildcats will attempt to get clearance to sign Lucas Walker as an injury replacement for the second time this season.Wildcats skipper Damian Martin (knee) isnt due back until mid-January.Bullets coach Andrej Lemanis was proud of the way his team bounced back from last weeks 18-point loss to Adelaide.Keeping them to 38 per cent from the field is a good defensive effort, Lemanis said.And on the back of that, them only having 12 offensive rebounds is a testament to the commitment we made on doing the effort things.And offensively, we got back to sharing the ball.
