  • Great Britain Sevens are looking to use players from XV-a-side to strengthen their squad for this summers Olympics in Rio. Malcolm Brown Jersey . Mens head coach Simon Amor plans to select a large training group in May ahead of naming the final squad of 12 players in July.The RFU has been criticised for a lack of preparation ahead of the summer showpiece, with other nations agreeing the release of big names from their respective XV-a-side squads including Sonny Bill Williams, Quade Cooper and Bryan Habana. Amor was appointed head coach of England Sevens in 2013 and was named as the Team GB coach last July.Ive been looking closely both at sevens specialists from across the three unions and a number of the XV-a-side players throughout the season and know the balance we need in the squad, he said. Sonny Bill Williams could be included in New Zealand squad Previous international sevens experience is important for the players coming in and certain positions and skill sets allow them to blend better with current sevens players.Eddie Jones England are on tour in Australia in the summer and the Saxons are travelling to South Africa.Wales, Scotland and Ireland, whose Northern Ireland players are eligible for Team GB, are also scheduled to travel overseas in June. Bryan Habana heading to Rio for South Africa this summer Amor is planning to enter two squads into a series of tournaments in June and July before naming his final party for the Olympics.Being able to enter two GB teams in all competitions allows us to test different combinations and confirm which XV-a-side players can make the physical, mental and game-understanding transition, he said.

Im sure you heard Peter Forsbergs comments last week regarding Canadian referees in the gold medal game. Seems to me that he was questioning the integrity and impartiality. OKLAHOMA CITY -- Sacramento coach Michael Malone said Kevin Durant wouldnt score 54 points against his Kings like he did against Golden State two nights earlier. Turns out, the alternative wasnt any fun for Malone, either. Durant scored 30 points and embraced a role as a facilitator by finishing with nine assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past Sacramento 108-93 on Sunday night. "I told you Durant wasnt going to get 54 tonight, right?" Malone said with a smile after the game. Durant, coming off that career-high scoring effort on Friday, still shot 10 for 15 from the field on Sunday and scored at least 30 points for the seventh straight game. Serge Ibaka added 20 points and benefited of several of Durants passes. "My teammates were setting screens for me," Durant said. "We were seeing something in pick-and-roll. Serge was doing a great job of slipping out of it and knocking down shots. I was trying to be aggressive and put pressure on the rim and the defence and if they draw in, I kick it out and if not, I try to lay the ball in, take a good shot." Reggie Jackson added 16 points for the Thunder, who won their third straight. Oklahoma City scored 34 points off Sacramentos 21 turnovers and had 20 second-chance points. Oklahoma City improved to 8-5 without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook since he had surgery on his right knee last month. "They execute well and they do a great job of playing together, so all credit to them," Cousins said. "But at the same time, I think we did a terrible job defensively of guarding those guys tonight. We made it easy for them to run their sets. With that being said, thats why they had the type of game they did." Isaiah Thomas scored a career-high 38 points for the Kings, but he slowed down in the second half as the Thunder pulled away. "He got hot," Durant said. "He hit a lot of 3s. He got to the foul line a lot. He was coming down, pulling up. I think our pick-and-roll defence was a loot better in the second half, making him drive a little more, forcing him to our bigs. John Franklin-Myers Jersey. " DeMarcus Cousins had 16 points and 14 rebounds for Sacramento. Rudy Gay scored just six points for the Kings and was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the fourth quarter. The score was tied at 43 late in the second quarter before the Thunder went on a 12-4 run, highlighted by Durants lob to Ibaka for a two-handed jam. The Thunder held the Kings to 6-for-17 shooting in the second quarter to take a 57-52 lead at the break. Thomas scored 27 points in the first half on 7-for-11 shooting. Cousins made a layup early in the third quarter to tie the score at 60, but the Thunder responded with an 8-0 run, including four points by Jackson, to put Oklahoma City ahead and force the Kings to call a timeout. Durant found Jackson a little later for a 3-pointer to extend the lead to 75-64 and force the Kings to call another timeout. Durant hit a 3 from straight away to bump Oklahoma Citys lead to 87-70, and the Thunder led 89-74 at the end of the quarter. Gay was called for two technicals for arguing with an official and was ejected with 10:01 remaining. The Thunder led 95-74 after the free throws. "Rudy, obviously, I think he was frustrated with the way he was playing and he wound up getting thrown out of the game, which is unfortunate," Malone said. "But tomorrow is another day. Well bounce back, well work on some things, watch some film and we still have two games on this trip that we feel like we have a great chance to win."
