Englands rugby Grand Slam-winning coach Eddie Jones has given Crystal Palace a motivational talk as they build up to an FA Cup final season finale. Before facing Manchester United in the cup final at Wembley on May 21, Alan Pardews squad have three Premier League matches to get through.Although now unlikely, the Eagles still face the mathematical possibility of relegation and ahead of Saturdays trip to his former club Newcastle, Pardew invited Jones to give his current charges a pep talk on Thursday. If they cant take on board his comments, then were in trouble. Alan Pardew Were still not mathematically safe in the Premier League, so we still have work to do, which is why I asked Eddie Jones to come in, and he had a few words with the team about complacency and about what teams do, said Pardew.Jones was appointed England rugby head coach following the sides dismal early exit from the World Cup and inspired them a few months later to win the Six Nations tournament, clinching their first Grand Slam since 2003 in the process. Pardew, whose side beat Watford 2-1 in Sundays FA Cup semi-final, added: Hes been involved in World Cups with other nations, is a multi-cultural personality, someone who is engaging. If they cant take on board his comments then were in trouble.We share a couple of professional friends. Jeremy Snape [Palace sports psychologist] is one of those, and Eddie asked me about the England rugby team.Weve been quite close since hes been here, and a lot of the views he has on trying to get more from individual players and the group run parallel with my own. Trying to get the best out of his ideas is nice for me. It was nice to have him here: good timing, what with the result we had [defeating Watford]. Jones is happy to offer pointers to Palace The Palace boss revealed Jones visit stemmed from a belief his players would benefit from hearing a new voice, with the talk coming on the same day Teddy Sheringham spoke to the clubs academy coaches and Pardew believes the use of those speakers helps to stimulate his squad.Ive always encouraged other coaches and managers to be involved, with comments from them, Pardew said. The most important point [Jones made] was that great teams can get to finals, but great teams only win finals if theyre great all the time. We have to be great this Saturday. That was the main key point I took from him.We cant turn up at Newcastle and let our standards down from Sunday otherwise were doing a disservice to our fans and ourselves. Hes given a lot of examples of how communication between the team and the coaches is important. The players just absorbed it. Its nice to hear it from somebody from a different genre, a different field, carrying the weight he does. Its a position that only great coaches and managers have. Bakary Sako (l), Jason Puncheon and Mile Jedinak (r) of Crystal Palace celebrate victory over Watford I worked it out that [France international] Yohan Cabaye will get a two-week holiday this year. Thats a long time to stimulate a footballer. Same with [my] Wales [internationals at Euro 2016]. Youve got to stimulate players and staff to try and improve yourself.Victory for Palace at St James Park would edge Newcastle even closer to relegation, just 17 months after Pardew left to join Palace at a time when Newcastle appeared reasonably strong. For all that he was an unpopular figure in the north-east, the manager insists he is desperate to see Newcastle survive, and believes they are an improving team again under Rafael Benitez. Alan Pardew wants his players to be up for the Newcastle game Theyre a much stronger team, said Pardew, who will monitor Wilfried Zaha before selecting his starting XI because of a leg injury the winger is carrying.Rafa is a very experienced manager who has managed at the top of the game, and hes got them in a much better place to win this game, and that worries me because my job is to win this game.The club is a beast when its going well, but it can be equally as destructive when things arent going well. At the moment, things are going well, so its a big bear well have to fight. Also See: Pardew: I hope Newcastle survive Wickham: I need to be better Palace fixtures Get a ￡10 free bet!

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Sailing, not the dirty water, was finally the focus on troubled Guanabara Bay during a spectacular start to the Olympic regatta on Monday.Windsurfers sped across the waves toward Flamengo Beach in a fresh breeze, against the imposing backdrop of Sugarloaf Mountain. Christ the Redeemer, Rios highest and most magnificent landmark, was obscured by fog.Across the bay, 43-year-old Robert Scheidt won the second race in the Laser class after finishing a disappointing 23rd in the opener. Hes trying to become the first Olympic sailor and first Brazilian to win six Olympic medals. He owns two golds, two silvers and a bronze. Hes seventh overall.This is like perfect conditions. You cant get better than this. And the views are amazing, said American windsurfer Pedro Pascual of Miami.Guanabara Bay seemed to pass the sniff test, at least on the surface.The courses appeared clear of trash. Organizers have sent a helicopter over the bay every morning searching for rubbish. If any is spotted, boats are sent to scoop it up. Barriers have been put across rivers to try to stem the flow of garbage into the bay.Under the waves, things are different.An independent study by The Associated Press has shown high levels of viruses and sometimes bacteria from human sewage in the water.Were not really concerned about that, Pascual said. Weve been here for a while training and weve hadnt had an issue. Im just focused on racing. Theres been days when it rains you can see stuff floating around, but its like eveerywhere else I guess.dddddddddddd Its a bay.American Paige Railey, who finished second in the second Laser Radial race and is seventh overall, said the water was great, totally fine. Warm, clean. We were happy. I really want to give hats off to Brazil. I came here in 2007 for the Pan Ams and theyve done a magnificent job of cleaning up the water and there are really no problems. Id jump off the boat and go swimming if I could.Charlie Buckingham of Newport Beach, California, making his Olympic debut in the Laser class, said the water was great. No trash. It was warm. Splashes felt good.Conditions could change if it rains.There always have been problems here, Spanish windsurfer Ivan Pastor said. Its a very large bay. There is a lot of current, rivers flowing into it and weve seen quite frequently a lot of trash floating; plastic, which is the worst.Pastor said hes not afraid of swallowing the water.Ive been here a lot and fallen and it hasnt been with my mouth closed, he said. Knock wood. Nothing has happened. It looks very clean today. There have been other years here when it was really dirty.Croatias Tonci Stipanovic led the Laser class while Chinas Lijia Xu led the Laser Radial.
