The England Sevens team are determined to give their home fans something to cheer about at the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series finale in London. Wholesale White Sox Jerseys . With GB Sevens appearance at the Olympic Games later this year a priority, England have rested some of their senior players and given their promising youngsters some much needed experience.They may not be in contention for the overall title, but believe the home support can help them deliver something special. Re-branded as a Feast of Rugby and live on Sky Sports, the London Sevens promises to be a fantastic event and Phil Burgess, who hopes to return to the squad for this weekends tournament, says the squad are relishing the occasion.London is really special for us, its our home venue, Burgess told englandrugby.comPlaying at Twickenham is incredible and as a group of players knowing our friends and family are here is more important. Everyone wants to put a marker down in front of a home crowd.You want to do them proud, you want to do your country proud. When you are out there playing for England you want to put some pride in the jersey and I think its really important.Fiji head into the tournament as HSBC World Sevens Series leaders, with South Africa and New Zealand in second and third respectively. England, in ninth place, have been drawn in a tough Pool B that includes table leaders Fiji, Australia and Wales. Samoa completed a stunning second-half comeback to beat World Series leaders Fiji 29-26 in the final of the Paris Sevens Unfortunately this year we are not in a position to compete for the World Series trophy, Fiji are out in front, but for all teams in Sevens to come to the home of rugby is fantastic for them, added Burgess.The games will be brilliant, there will be some upsets for sure which will be very exciting for the fans. This season for us was a development year and was all about putting out the team we can and getting the performances we can as individuals so that at the end of the series we can push on to other things.So for us as individuals weve got to go out and perform and then whatever comes after that comes.

Greenwoods Favourite 5 Hayne welcomed by Cheika Follow @SkySportsRugby Cheap MLB Jerseys .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Cheap White Sox Jerseys China . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. http://www.cheapwhitesoxjerseys.com/ . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Scotland batsman Calum MacLeod has credited a return to form to technical adjustments made during a winter of off-season training with his county side Durham. MacLeods 103 in a win over UAE on Tuesday was his third ODI ton for Scotland and first since 2014.Its been a year without a hundred for Scotland so to get a monkey off my back in putting in a winning performance again, Im really really happy personally, MacLeod told ESPNcricinfo after the win in Edinburgh.MacLeod had an outstanding 2014 for Scotland, beginning that January by scoring two centuries at the 2014 World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand including a Scotland ODI record 175 against Canada. He ended the year in solid form as well, notching 116 not out in a win over Ireland at Malahide in September.However, 2015 was a nightmare for MacLeod. A pre-World Cup tour to the UAE to play fellow World Cup participants Ireland and Afghanistan in a desert tri-series netted three runs in five innings opening the batting. Things didnt get much better at the World Cup either. He scored off one ball in his first 12 deliveries of the tournament, registering two ducks along the way to complete a string of four noughts in six innings that began in Dubai.After being Scotlands second-highest scorer in New Zealand a year earlier at the Qualifier, with 401 runs in eight innings, he ended the World Cup with 50 runs in six innings. He struggled at the World T20 Qualifier back on home soil later in the summer too, finishing fifth in the team in runs with 114 from seven innings and a best of just 29.That form slump carried to Durham as well. In 2014, MacLeod was Durhams leading scorer in the NatWest T20 Blast with 358 runs at 44.75 including two fifties. On the back of the World Cup drought, he made 210 runs at 21.00 in the T20 Blast while his County Championship form went south too, finishing with 161 runs in 13 innings at 14.63 with a best of 44.After the World Cup and the season that followed as well, I got myself into some quite bad habits, MacLeod said. Last winter I went away and worked quite closely with the coach for quite a lot of the winter, Jon Lewis down at Durham, and we did some really interesting work.It was amazing how small a change I think I had to make to get back to scoring runs. It felt, and it looked when we did some video, that a lot of the time I just wasnt set. My trigger [movement] wasnt in and it was that simple, that I was doing it too late. Cheap White Sox Jerseys. So I was trying to bat when I wasnt even ready to bat.MacLeod started to show signs of turning things around in January during the tour of Hong Kong when he top-scored with 58 in the first ODI. He struggled a bit more in the subsequent T20s and wound up only playing in one of Scotlands three matches at the World T20 in India.However, MacLeod continued to plug away upon returning to Durham and the results have been showing. Working his way back into the first team he scored an unbeaten 105 on July 18 in the 2nd XI one-day cup against Northamptonshire, his third 50-plus score in four games in the competition. On July 29, he motored to 83 off 50 in the T20 Blast against Derbyshire before scoring Tuesdays century against UAE.Changing such a simple thing and just getting it in earlier for me, it gave me the time and the confidence started to flow when I scored more runs in the early part of this season down at Durham and continued it the whole way through. So its been a nice reward of some hard work in the winter away from games.Scotland have two more home ODIs in September against Hong Kong to end the summer. Theyre also now just one point behind Netherlands after eight games in the WCL Championship. Scotlands remaining WCL Championship fixtures through 2017 come against Namibia, Papua New Guinea and Kenya and MacLeod says the series against Hong Kong is a good opportunity to continue building momentum in an effort to overtake Netherlands on the WCL Championship table next year.We spent a bit of time in Hong Kong during the winter, MacLeod said. We didnt play our best cricket so I think the guys will be really fired up to give Hong Kong a good showing and show them what we can do. If we play as well as we played and field as well as we have then I see no reason why we cant come away with two wins.We want to win the tournament and I think its going to be based on performances like weve done in the last two games. We dont want to do it based on other teams losing games. There wont be a game that we wont go into without this attitude to go and win the game and take it forward. Obviously theres some big games coming up. Its just a case of finding a way to win those really.
