Connacht endured a nightmare start to their Guinness PRO12 title defence with a humbling 41-5 defeat to Glasgow Warriors at the Sportsground. Cheap Cardinals Jerseys Authentic .The Scots, who ended last season with back-to-back losses in Galway, laid the foundations for this excellent bonus-point win with two Tommy Seymour tries.The Scotland winger finished crisply on 10 and 37 minutes, with Henry Pyrgos kicked a penalty in between. An unconverted Niyi Adeolokun effort provided Connachts points at 13-5 down.The defending champions lack of pre-season fixtures -- they only had one game away to Montpellier -- was ruthlessly exposed by Glasgow, who dominated the second half, adding further touchdowns through man-of-the-match Stuart Hogg, Tim Swinson, Sila Puafisi and Sean Lamont on his 100th appearance for the club.With 473 international caps in their squad and the early wind advantage, Gregor Townsends side started strongly and centre Sam Johnson threatened on a half-break.Adeolokun showed how dangerous he can be on Connachts right wing, but Seymour managed to haul him down and, just moments later, he was celebrating the games opening try. Quick hands from Peter Horne and Hogg put the Nashville-born flyer over in the left corner.A well-timed lineout steal by Jonny Gray broke up a spell of Connacht pressure and Bundee Aki blundered when failing to put debutant full-back Cian Kelleher clear outside him.Glasgow co-captain Grays industry at the breakdown teed up Pyrgos for a successful 25th-minute penalty, although number eight Ryan Wilsons late and dangerous tackle on Jack Carty had the visitors a man down.It was Aki who provided the momentum for Connachts opening score, the centre powering out of two attempted tackles before neat passes from Denis Buckley, Finlay Bealham and Eoin Griffin sent Adeolokun diving over by the right corner flag.Carty was unable to convert and Glasgow had the last word before half-time. Hoggs flat delivery out to the right allowed Seymour to cut in past Kelleher and complete his brace.Connachts rustiness was obvious again when Hogg exploited a gap between Griffin and Matt Healy to reach over to the right of the posts, with Pyrgos boot making it 20-5 barely six minutes after the restart.The bonus point was bagged in the 53rd minute as second row Swinson piled over following good work by lively Italian newcomer Leonardo Sarto. The latter also had a hand in the build-up to Puafisis score on the hour mark, the Tongan replacement prop crashing through after Hogg was held up by Kelleher.Turnovers and dropped balls continued to frustrate Connacht, who only had one home defeat during the entire 2015/16 season.Lamont wrapped up the runaway victory in the 71st minute, scoring from a close-range ruck, with scrum-half Pyrgos slotting his fourth successful conversion in a row.

After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. http://www.cheapstlouiscardinalsjerseys.com/ . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts quarterback Andrew Luck isnt buying the notion that the Denver Broncos are a dirty team on defense after a number of questionable hits on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in Week 1.I wouldnt use that word, Luck said Wednesday. Id say they play hard and like any good defense, any good offense, like any good football team, you want to toe that line of aggression, Luck said. They are certainly a tough, physical defense. Sometimes you get hit in the head, a flag comes out or it doesnt come out. I dont worry too much about it. Its the refs job in a sense. By and large I think they do a great job of that.Lucks 2015 season ended with a lacerated kidney on a clean hit by Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan from the front and defensive end Vance Walker?from the side in Week 9 last season.Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano has a plan to make sure Luck isnt in the position to take any questionable hits when the Colts take on the Broncos on Sunday.If we pick things up, we communicate, get a hat on a hat, we do ouur job and obviously we can limit those things, he said. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. Its physical, physical football. We know that. We have to do our job and everybody else has to do their job.ESPN.com Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold reported Wednesday that safety?Darian Stewart?and linebacker Brandon Marshall were both fined for hits on Carolina quarterback?Cam Newton?in Week 1. Legwold also reported that linebacker Von Miller and cornerback Bradley Roby could be fined for hits in that game, too.The Colts want to do the best possible job when it comes to protecting Luck -- and any other of their quarterbacks -- after they used five players at that position last season.I think were all aware of what was mentioned after the [Carolina-Denver] game, Pagano said. As a coach like anybody else, were counting on everybody doing their job and getting it right. Those guys are on top of their stuff. We have to do a great job.
