New Zealand have retained the Bledisloe Cup for yet another year with a 29-9 victory over Australia in Wellington.The Wallabies turned in an improved showing after their 42-8 drubbing in Sydney, but they never seriously threatened the world champions line and New Zealand were untroubled in lifting the silverware for the 14th year in succession.Australia scored through two penalties from Bernard Foley and a 52-metre goal from Reece Hodge, who was thrown into the mix earlier than expected when veteran winger Adam Ashley-Cooper went off with concussion in the 17th minute.New Zealand, meanwhile, took what opportunities fell their way in a stop-start affair, the whistle of referee Romain Poite a constant presence throughout the 80 minutes. A first-half double to Israel Dagg gave the hosts a 15-9 advantage at the break before Julian Savea and Sam Cane crossed for tries in the second half.On the scoreboard, it looks like were going pretty easy but I dont think anyone would say it was easy out there tonight, New Zealand coach Steve Hansen said.The skill level of our guys tonight was really good under extreme pressure at times.At the moment, I think thats probably where weve got a little bit of an edge.I dont want to sit here and bag Australia. Theyre one of our best friends.The Wallabies began with clear intent in front of the sold-out crowd of 35,372 spectators at a windswept Westpac Stadium, where they have not won for 16 years, but they still fell down in key areas, coughing up three lineouts and struggling to contain the slick, polished world champions -- missing 27 tackles to six.The All Blacks werent as clinical as in Sydney but still dominated possession and territory, and played all the rugby.Australia went closest to scoring when Nick Phipps crossed in the dying moments - as he had done the week before -- but this time he lost control of the ball as he tried to touch down.Australias losing streak under Michael Cheika now stands at six matches - one short of the seven defeats in 2005 that eventually led to the sacking of Eddie Jones.Two-Test lock Adam Coleman was also yellow-carded just before the interval for a late shoulder charge on Ben Smith.While that incident wont have impressed Cheika, the Wallabies coach was happy with the resolve his team showed after last weeks deplorable display.The players responded much better, he said.I was more pleased with the performance this week in that regard and thats something weve got to build on and bring to every game.(But) we cant wait until were down on one knee before we bring it. http://www.ramsrookiestore.com/Rams-Johnny-Hekker-Jersey/ .

Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. http://www.ramsrookiestore.com/Rams-Marshall-Faulk-Jersey/ .

Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers.

The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. WASHINGTON -- It has been a challenging year for the San Diego Padres, who begin a three-game series on Friday in the nations capital against Washington.The Padres entered Thursday with a record of 41-54 and the team has traded its former closer, Fernando Rodney, and top starter, Drew Pomeranz, in the last few weeks. And starting pitcher Andrew Cashner, according to several sources, could be dealt.When San Diego gets to Nationals Park, they will also get another look at what could have been, as young Nationals infielder Trea Turner has been drawing raves this week with his speed. He had triples on Tuesday and Wednesday and also stole home on a double steal in an 8-1 win on Wednesday.Turner, who started at second on Thursday, was a first-round draft pick out of North Carolina State by the Padres in 2014. He was traded on Dec. 14. 2015 to the Nationals in a three-way deal with the Tampa Bay Rays.San Diego did net All-Star first baseman Wil Myers in the deal, though the Nationals also got young starting pitcher Joe Ross from the Padres. Ross made his big league debut in June 2015 and he is 7-4, 3.49 this year but has been on the disabled list since July 3 with right shoulder inflammation.Washington manager Dusty Baker said earlier this year he is not sure why the Padres let go of Ross. Glad we have him, Baker added.Of immediate concern for the Padres will be facing right-hander Tanner Roark on Fridday.dddddddddddd Roark struck out 11 San Diego batters in a game in 2014 and enters the contest with a mark of 9-5, 2.82 in 20 games, with 19 starts.You cant show anything -- be stone faced, Roark said after a recent start.The University of Illinois product won 15 games as a starter in 2014 and spent most of last season out of the bullpen. He was the winning pitcher in an 8-5 decision at San Diego on June 16 in the first of a four-game series against the Padres.Roark does not have much of a track record against San Diego hitters. Myers has one homer in two at-bats against him while Virginia native Melvin Upton, Jr. is hitting .235 in 17 at-bats with just one RBI against Roark, who is one of the more underrated starters in the game.Roark will be faced Friday by right-hander Luis Perdomo, who is 3-4 with a 7.36 ERA.He allowed eight hits in his last start against the San Francisco Giants, but he has allowed three runs or fewer in six of his eight starts this year.The Padres are 4-2 in those six starts and 5-3 overall in his starts. He has not faced any current Washington hitters.Now, Im a lot more relaxed. I just went out there and pitched, played baseball, and my sinker got a lot of ground balls today, Perdomo told reporters after facing the Dodgers earlier this month.
