Eddie Jones joined Will Greenwood and Alex Payne in the Sky Sports studio on Friday night to look ahead to Englands Old Mutual Wealth Series. Caris LeVert Jersey . England, who have won all nine Tests under the guidance of Jones, face South Africa at Twickenham on Saturday followed by fixtures against Fiji, Argentina and Australia. Watch NOW TV Watch all four England rugby internationals for £25. No contract. The England coach spoke about Englands preparations for the autumn internationals, his team selection for the Springboks, the Lions chances in New Zealand and also answered some viewers questions. Jones on Englands preparationWe have had a great two weeks. We had a week in Portugal and got some really good work done on and off the field. Weve got quite a new squad; were missing around 10 players from our top 30. England were put through their paces in Portugal Weve had to integrate the new players, get them used to playing the England way, get them thinking the way we want them to think. Portugal was really useful and then we came back to Pennyhill Park to sharpen the axe.Its important that guys get together and socialise, but a lot of it is the tactical part, understanding how we want to play. The other part is the cultural part, which the players are leading themselves and are working on at the moment.Jones on team selection for South Africa England v South Africa: Key battles We look at the key areas where Saturdays Test will be won or lost The great thing about being the England coach is each selection gets harder and harder. Thats the way it should be. Weve got a number of good players competing for a number of spots. Look at the guys we had to send away on Tuesday, such as Henry Slade and Roko (Semesa Rokoduguni), who has been the form winger in the Premiership. Were getting a nice competitive environment. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Why did I not select Rokoduguni? Its horses for courses. Weve tried to pick the side that can beat South Africa. Playing against South Africa is completely different compared to playing Argentina, Australia or Fiji. Weve tried to pick the guys who can cope with the South African game. Further down the track other guys will come into it.Jones on Tom Woods recallHe has gone back to club rugby and become much more impactful in his tackling and carries. He has always been a good work-rate player. He has good lineout skills and can really fill those big shoes of James Haskell. Tom Wood returns to the England back row on Saturday Ive been impressed by the way he has come back into the team. He has got on with it, worked really hard and become more influential as the couple of weeks went on.Jones on South AfricaWith the South Africans its all going to come down route one initially. Theyll try to gain momentum with their big ball-carriers and they play off the back of that. Pat Lambie is a smart player at 10, he likes to put the ball in behind. South Africa are unbeaten in their last 12 Tests against England, including a 31-28 victory in 2014 Test match rugby always comes down to set piece. The scrum and lineout are going to be super important and what happens on those phases after that. Our job is to make sure we minimise how they win the ball at the set piece and then close them down on that first and second phase. We have been working hard on that.South Africa have got a very tall lineout. Theyve three locks playing, which creates opportunities in other areas. Weve got one of the smartest lineout coaches in the world. No-one carries a laptop around more than Steve Borthwick. Courtney Lawes, Joe Launchbury, Tom Wood and Chris Robshaw are well educated on what we need to do at the lineout.Jones on Ireland beating New Zealand Ireland defeated New Zealand for the first time in 111 years Ireland were very smart. They kept the game structured, played to their strengths. New Zealand picked a complacent side, whether that was through injuries or they thought they get away without playing any locks, and they got caught with their pants down.How good are the All Blacks? To win 18 Tests in a row youve got to be pretty good. But like any team, if you can find ways of putting pressure on them and on individuals, you can turn a game around.Jones on the Lions chances in New Zealand Warren Gatland will attempt to lead the Lions to victory over his native New Zealand I think they have a fantastic chance. Look at the four countries, youre going to get a strong team together - and England is going to be the base of that team. I hope Warren is watching for some selection advice! There is a team capable of beating New Zealand because they can put pressure on areas where New Zealand arent particularly strong in.How would you approach the game? Youve got to keep the game structured. New Zealand want to play unstructured rugby. Every kid plays sevens, you go down there and everyone is out throwing the ball around, sidestepping and throwing long passes. Youve almost got to bore them to death, which is what Ireland did. Keep the ball tight, put the ball in the air and contest, dont allow them too much space. Ireland did that brilliantly.Watch England v South Africa live on Sky Sports 1 HD on Saturday from 2pm. Catch all four of Englands Old Mutual Wealth Series fixtures for £25 with NOW TV. No contract.

But the head linesman said there wasnt enough contact and that Hitchens was face-guarding, which isnt a penalty in the NFL. Jeremy Lin Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. . - Maynor Figueroa headed in a late goal to give Honduras a 1-1 draw with the United States in an international friendly Tuesday.OCALA, Fla. - Well-rested and healthy, Michelle Wie is ready to get back to work.Im very excited for this year, said Wie, set to begin play Wednesday in the LPGA Tours season-opening Coates Golf Championship. No major swing changes. Just working on building upon last year. I want to just keep the momentum going, just keep building.My goal for this year is the same. I want to be consistent, but at the same time I want to get a little bit better each and every day.The 25-year-old Wie won the U.S. Womens Open last year at Pinehurst, then struggled the rest of the season with a stress fracture in her right hand.My top priority this year is to stay healthy, Wie said. Ive always kind of struggled with that, so Im really keeping on top of it. Been working out really hard.The sixth-ranked Wie also won last year in her native Hawaii.Shes one of eight top-10 players in the field at Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club. Top-ranked Inbee Park also is playing along with No. 2 Lydia Ko, No. 3 Stacy Lewis, No. 5 Suzann Pettersen, No. 8 So Yeon Ryu, No. 9 Karrie Webb and No. 10 Lexi Thompson.Park and Lewis shared the tour lead last year with three titles. Lewis also had six runner-up finishes.Thats what motivates me this year that last year could have been an unbelievable year, Lewis said. It was good, but it could have been unbelievable. So thats what I am looking for, Im looking for a major this year, but I think its really just about trying to get beetter every day and making little changes here and there that hopefully pay off in the long run. Allen Crabbe Jersey. A ball change kept her busy during the off-season.Normally, I like to put the clubs away for a few weeks and just get rid of them, but I couldnt this time because I was having to make a golf ball change, Lewis said. The golf ball I was playing has come off the conforming list, so I had to find a new golf ball. I tested I think about every golf ball on the market. So thats what I did most of December.Park is starting the season earlier than she has before.I never really played the two first events, but I decided to play this year and get the feel of it early, Park said. It was a very short off-season, but I feel like I did the things that I really needed to get done. Worked on the swing, worked on rehab, my body.Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods niece, is making her first start as a tour member. She won the Australian Ladies Masters in February and recovered from a second-round 79 at Q-school to earn her tour card in December.It feels great to officially finally be a member, Woods said. Ive had the privilege to play a few LPGA events in the past, but to now be a member feels a little different. So Im excited for this week and to finally tee it up.Sadena Parks also is starting her rookie season, giving the tour two black members for the first since 1971. Woods and Parks are the fifth and sixth black members in tour history.
