    Saturday, kick-off 14:30TwickenhamEddie Jones England look set to end a 10-year run without a win against South Africa when an under-performing Springboks side take to the field at Twickenham on Saturday. Cheap Baseball Jerseys China .?As they look to continue their 100 percent record under Jones, there has not been a better time to face the Boks, whose most recent performance saw them struggle to draw against the Barbarians last week.In stark contrast, England bossed Australia in their 3-0 series win in the summer and despite a few injuries, their players come into the November international window on the back of some very good club form.?A disappointing Rugby Championship for?Allister Coetzees side culminated in a 57-15 defeat at home to the All Blacks. It is difficult to find a time where expectation was lower among their fans and there is little to show that they will turn things around against England, and push their unbeaten run against them to 13 games.Team newsCourtney Lawes is set to win his 50th cap in a pack that has seen its back-row options limited with James Haskell, Maro Itoje, Jack Clifford, Sam Jones and Mike Williams all missing out through injury. The raft of injuries has given Tom Wood his first opportunity to start for England since the World Cup.?Wasps Elliot Daly got the nod at centre in place of Jonathan Joseph, while Jones will hope the George Ford/Owen Farrell, 10/12 axis, will continue to blossom. On the bench the prospect of Ben Teo will excite English fans, with the centre bringing physicality and neat footwork to the back-line. If he, Kyle Sinckler or Nathan Hughes make an appearance, it will be their first run-out in an England shirt.Springboks head coach Allister Coetzee opted to leave out Bryan Habana from the matchday squad, although the Toulon winger looked to have shaken off a knee injury. He has gone for brute force in his pack, with Lood de Jager, Willem Alberts and Pieter-Steph du Toit providing both physicality and size. They were all replacements in Octobers defeat to the All Blacks and much is expected from all three to enforce their game on England.Damian de Allende and Pat Lambie are the sole survivors from the team that started the defeat to New Zealand in the back-line, but Lambie switches from fullback to fly-half for Saturdays clash.England: Brown, Yarde, Daly, Farrell, May, Ford, Youngs; M. Vunipola, Hartley (captain), Cole, Launchbury, Lawes, Robshaw, Wood, B. VunipolaReplacements:?George, Marler, Sinckler, Attwood, Hughes, Care, Teo, JosephSouth Africa:?Le Roux, Combrinck, Venter, de Allende, Pietersen, Lambie, Paige; Mtawarira, Strauss, Koch, Etzebeth, de Jager, Alberts, du Toit, WhiteleyReplacements:?Mbonambi, Kitshoff, Adriaanse, Mostert, Carr, de Klerk, Goosen, Mapoe.Key head-to-headWhat difference can three players make? That is the big question as South Africa look to avoid a similar thumping to that which was inflicted upon them a month ago. Their pack is not the once feared and all-dominating pack of old. In contrast England come into the game having destroyed Australia up front in the summer and in Mako Vunipola have arguably the best prop in world rugby. He has been in terrifying form for Saracens and if he and brother Billy can have the same influence on Saturday, that they have had at club level, it will decide the outcome. ?Key stats*Englands only decent result against South Africa in 10 years came in the 2012 12-12 draw in South Africa.*Eddie Jones has a 100 percent record since taking charge of England, who are on a 10-game winning streak.*England have won just 12 of the 37 games between the sides, with two draws.WeatherBoth sets of fans will hope the rain forecast will avoid Twickenham for a few hours on Saturday. If it doesnt it could be a very attritional and punishing game for both forward packs.?PredictionEngland will put an end to their abysmal record against the Boks. Eddie Jones side showed in the summer that even when series victory is ensured, there is no let up in their intent. That could spell disaster for South Africa who are still no clearer in knowing which way they should play under?Allister Coetzee. A rack of tries from the explosive England back-line should serve up a comfortable victory by 15 points.? Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. ;. -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina football player charged with misdemeanor sexual battery and assault on a fellow student is scheduled for trial in December.During a brief court hearing Thursday morning, attorneys reserved the weeks of Dec. 5 and Dec. 12 for the case against Allen Artis, a junior reserve linebacker suspended indefinitely from the team.Afterward, Artis attorneys told reporters they would continue to fight the case and were concerned about damage to his reputation.Ill make that clear right now: We are not going to plead guilty to anything, said Steve Lindsay, an Asheville-based attorney. This man has done nothing wrong.Artis, who has been suspended indefinitely from the team, attended the hearing with his parents, an aunt and a godmother.In the front row sat the accuser, Delaney Robinson, and her attorney. The Associated Press typically doesnt identify people who say they are the victims of sexual assault, but Robinson held a Sept. 13 news conference, saying she had filed for the misdemeanor charges after police and prosecutors indicated there wasnt enough evidence to pursue felony charges.Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall has taken the lead on the misdemeanor case and has said it remains an ongoing investigation.According to an arrest warrant, Artis had sex with Robinson against her will in February when he should have reasonably known that the other person was mentally incapacitated and physically helpless. The warrant also said he pulled on her bra strap causing an indentation on her shoulder/back during the encounter.Robinson has said she had become intoxicated after being out with friends and was unable to consent to having sex.. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. Her attorney, Denise Branch, has also criticized the way campus police handled a rape kit and the questioning of Artis, who is from Marietta, Georgia.Delaney Robinson is a rape victim, and she has chosen to exercise her rights as a victim to be involved in these legal proceedings, Branch said in a statement released after Thursdays hearing. We are pleased with the actions Mr. Woodall and his office have taken since Ms. Robinson had the courage to come forward.?Ms. Robinson remains resolute in her pursuit of justice.Artis met with a group of reporters Tuesday to make his first public comments on the allegations. He said the two had consensual sex and that he neither drugged nor raped her. Kerry Sutton, a Durham-based attorney who also is representing Artis, said he passed a polygraph test and reiterated that Thursday.I wanted you to see that he is not a mugshot, said Sutton, who later turned to Artis and said: Allen, tell them, did you rape her?I did not rape her, Artis repeated five times, pausing each time to turn and look into a different camera.Artis indefinitely suspension was the result of an automatic university policy when an athlete is charged with a misdemeanor. Any reinstatement would come after a review from athletic director Bubba Cunningham, head coach Larry Fedora and school officials.Artis has played in 27 career games as a reserve and on special teams with 20 tackles. He last practiced Sept. 11, two days before Robinsons news conference, and said he is still attending classes and plans to graduate in May. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys China JerseysCheap NFL Autographed Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '
