As rugby sevens prepares to take its Olympic bow in Rio, these are the players to watch out for when the womens competition kicks off on Aug. 6 and the men get started on Aug. 9.Collins Injera (Kenya) A sevens legend who is the record try-scorer on the World Rugby Sevens Series circuit with 235 and one of Kenyas most recognised sports stars. Away from the sport, he works full-time for a PR company in Nairobi but his focus in Rio will be on trying to steer his teams way through a pool featuring New Zealand, Great Britain and Japan.Emily Scarratt (Great Britain)?She has won the World Cup in 15s with England and will skipper Team GB at Rio. In 15s she has developed one of the most accurate kickers in world rugby but possesses a scything sidestep which sees her create space for herself and teammates.Sonny Bill Williams (New Zealand) The box-office star of Olympic sevens. In the 15-man form of rugby he has won the World Cup twice, and also has rugby league and boxing titles to his name. His hero is Muhammad Ali and his fame will give him a cachet beyond his sport at the Olympics. His offloads are sensational and the achievement of transferring from 15s to sevens in the space of just a year cannot be underestimated.Ellia Green (Australia)She could have been a short-distance track athlete such is her pace and she will light up Rio with her blistering speed. Australia headed to Rio as favourites for the womens crown and Green will be integral to their medal charge. To get an idea of her ability, have a look at this try from the Gold Coast Sevens in October 2014.Seabelo Senatla (South Africa)The Blitzbokke star was the top try scorer in last seasons sevens series with 66 and is one of the most lethal finishers in the sport. He has Super Rugby experience having played for the Stormers and, aged just 23, he could have a fine career on the international stage in 15s. With the likes of Springboks superstar Bryan Habana missing out on a space in the South Africa squad for Rio, expect big things from Senatla and his teammates.Portia Woodman (New Zealand)?She comes from a rich New Zealand rugby heritage with both her father and uncle playing for the All Blacks in the 1980s. She was crowned World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year in 2015 and is also a gifted netball player and her try-scoring pedigree is second to none on the circuit.Tom Mitchell (Great Britain) Team GBs build up has been less than ideal. England, Wales and Scotland played apart on the Sevens Series and have only had four tournaments together under the united umbrella. But Mitchell, who will captain Great Britain in Rio, is one of the games finest playmakers and is a hugely impressive individual both on and off the field.Perry Baker (USA) Even Senatla says that Perry Baker and his U.S. teammate Carlin Isles are quicker than him. Thats no mean feat. Baker grew up playing college football and was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles only for an injury to curtail his chances of playing in the NFL. He is frighteningly quick and if the U.S. get on the front foot with the brilliant Madison Hughes pulling the strings, Baker could be one of the stars of the Games.Ghislaine Landry (Canada) Landry was the top points scorer in last seasons Sevens Series with 158. She has a degree in human kinetics and her nickname is the pocket rocket. Her goal at Rio is simple: to win and create a legacy so the game continues to grow in Canada.Savenaca Rawaca (Fiji) The great Fiji coach Ben Ryan rates Rawaca highly and so do Premiership side Saracens whove signed him ahead of next season. Fiji are the team to beat in the mens side of the tournament and when you cast your eye across their incredible squad, it is easy to see why. You could pick any one of their 12-strong party for a player to watch but Rawaca should be superb. College Jerseys China . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. ., and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Sask., took sixth spot on Saturday in pairs at the NHK Trophy ISU Grand Prix figure skating competition. Cheap College Jerseys For Sale . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. Wholesale NCAA Basketball Jerseys . Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4. STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State coach James Franklin said this week that the Nittany Lions needed to show opponents the ability to win games solely by the pass if the ground game goes awry; with 372 yards rushing against Maryland on Saturday, its a theory they didnt need to prove.Saquan Barkley ran for 202 yards, quarterback Trace McSorley added 81 more and threw a pair of touchdown passes to lead Penn State over Maryland 38-14 in front of a homecoming crowd of 100,778.McSorley accounted for 233 total yards, throwing for 152, as the Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) had a season-high 524 total yards and snapped Marylands five game win streak.Its simple, Franklin said. Its upfront. If youre good up front across the offensive line and the defensive line, you have a chance to be successful.Penn State has gotten off to slow starts in each of its games this season. The Nittany Lions shook that off with a seven-play, 84-yard touchdown drive on its opening possession that featured four plays of 17 yards or more and capped by a 5-yard scoring pass from McSorley to tight end Mike Gesicki.It was huge for us to get that first touchdown, said McSorley. We were able to get Beaver Stadium rocking.Barkley averaged 6.5 yards on 31 carries.I didnt do anything spectacular today, Barkley said. The offensive line took over and did a good job. We kind of felt we could run the ball; we hadnt been getting our running game going. The offensive line did an outstanding job. I saw that we had 300 some yards and I told them (linemen), `its all you.We got off to a fast start today, Barkley added. Weve been able to put 30 points on the board but we havent started on fire.Penn State had four sacks and limited Maryland (4-1, 1-1) to 270 total yards, including 170 on the ground. The Terps came in averaging 300 yards rushing per game in victories over Howard, Florida International, Central Florida and Purdue. Lorenzo Harrison led the Terps with 76 yards rushing.Maryland was forced to play without veteran quarterback Perry Hills during the second half; Hills injured his shoulder on a second-quarter keeper deep in Penn State territory and Maryland coach D.J. Durkin said it was not in Hills best interest to return in the second half.We have to play better, we have to coach better, Durkin said. We made dumb mistakes. We have to stay within the scheme of our offensse.ddddddddddddMaryland closed to within 17-14 late in the first half when Tyrrell Pigrome, subbing for the injured Hills, scored on his first snap with a 7-yard run. But Barkley peeled off a 25-yard run and one play later a 45-yard scoring jaunt to put the Lions up by 10 at the half.Its really indescribable how we played that next series on defense, Durkin said. We didnt call it well, we didnt execute it well; I cant even begin to describe it.Penn State penalties and a Barkley fumble enabled the Terps to stay within striking distance until McSorley hooked up with DeAndre Thompkins on a 70-yard scoring pass late in the third quarter to make it 31-14.Offensively, we put up some good numbers and did some good things, Penn States Franklin said. I thought we matched up well against this team on the O-line and the D-line. The games that weve matched up well, weve had success.KEY INJURIES: Tackle Andrew Nelson, arguably Penn States top lineman, injured his right knee late in the first half and likely will be lost for the season, Franklin said. Penn State freshman punter Blake Gillikin was injured when Maryland blocked a first-half punt and did not return.TARGETING A KICKER: Penn State kicker Joey Julius made jarring tackles against Kent State and Michigan this season and as a result has drawn blocking interest on kickoffs. He was the victim of a late hit against Minnesota and the Gophers Jaylen Waters was ejected. Saturday, Julius was knocked down late by Marylands Isaiah Davis after his second-half kickoff had sailed out of bounds and Davis was ejected. If he (Davis) wasnt thrown out of the game, he would have been removed by me, Durkin said. That is not us. We had momentum to start the half and that swung it the other way. Julius, who weighs 260 pounds, revealed on Facebook last week that he underwent treatment over the summer in a St. Louis facility for an eating disorder.UP NEXTMARYLAND: After playing three of its first five games on the road, Maryland returns home to face Minnesota on Oct. 15.PENN STATE: The Nittany Lions have an open date Oct. 15 prior to playing their third straight home game on Oct. 22 against No. 2 Ohio State; the Buckeyes will be Penn States second top-five opponent this season.
