Australia fly-half Bernard Foley has hit back at his sides critics and says the Wallabies togetherness was crucial to their impressive win against Wales. Following whitewash series defeats to both England and New Zealand the squad had come in for criticism, with Foley himself moved to the centres to accommodate the return of Quad Cooper.However, back in his favoured No. 10 jersey, Foley put in a man-of-the-match performance as the Wallabies blew their hosts away, building a 20-3 half-time lead at the Principality Stadium before eventually triumphing 32-8. For us there is a lot of external noise, and there has been this year, and its something that weve had to put up with, Foley said. But as a squad were taking no notice of that external noise, were trying to just focus on our roles in this squad and be really tight as a squad. And I think the resilience this team has showed, the character its showed with the tests that weve been put through this year is just setting the platform for future success.Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika praised his teams preparation for the game in his post-match press conference, and his playmaker echoed those thoughts. He said: Its pleasing, it definitely is. Its on the back of a lot of hard work, not just this week but throughout the Rugby Championship and into that third Bledisloe [Cup game against the All Blacks] this team has been working tirelessly on our defensive systems, on making the right tackles and decisions, but also on our attack shape.If you look at the forwards, they were awesome in their ability to set the platform, set the physicality. Thats something we have to continue.However, Foley insisted there was still work to be done as the Wallabies turn their attention to their game against Scotland at Murrayfield next Saturday. The two sides met in last years Rugby World Cup quarterfinal, with Australia securing their passage to the last four thanks in no small part to a questionable decision from referee Craig Joubert.You only have to look back at last years quarterfinal, he added. Theyre a team that if youre ill-disciplined and knock off at the set piece, theyll really hurt you. Thats something well address early in this week and go with a plan to nullify that.Meanwhile, Cheika revealed that David Pocock was replaced at half-time in Cardiff due to a head knock sustained in the first half.

At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career.

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio used the Kenny Powers got his pitch back defense in explaining what receiver Michael Crabtree was doing when he was hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty for his celebration Sunday.Crabtree had just hauled in a two-point conversion pass from Derek Carr to give the Raiders a 35-34 lead with 47 seconds to play when he flipped the ball in the air, made a gesture with his hand and in came the flag.Many assumed Crabtree made a throat-slash movement. Del Rio, though, saw it differently. He saw Crabtree doing what the fictional Powers did in the HBO comedy series Eastbound & Down when the former big league pitcher hit 101 mph on the radar gun.I mean, Im serious, Del Rio said. That gesture is what he was doing.Granted, in the show, Powers had just hit his rival in his left eye, knocking it out, with his pitch before wiping his pitching fingers under his nose, flicking them in disdain and uttering some words not fit for a family website.Ive actually showed that clip with our guys, about getting our pitch back and having the concentration, Del Rio continued. And thats what he was gesturing. It wasnt a throat slash. So, take a shot of that [scene], all right, and see what he did after the play and youll see thats what he was doing.ddddddddddddNow, maybe you cant do that move, either.Del Rio laughed nervously, especially since a 15-yard penalty could have given the Saints prime field position on the ensuing kickoff and all New Orleans needed to win was a field goal. But Sebastian Janikowski launched a deep kick and the Saints were able to attempt only a 61-yarder that was wide left as time expired.After the game, Crabtree admitted emotions were high because he came through on a fade pass in the end zone for the Raiders, after not being able to connect with Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers on three straight fades in Super Bowl XLVII.Last play, you know, ended bad [in the Super Bowl], Crabtree said. This time, the last play ended good.And the celebration?Man, it was just making a play and having fun, man, he said. Having fun out there today.It should be noted that the successful two-point conversion happened in the northwest end zone of the Superdome. Yes, westbound and up for a team trending that way.
