Australia have been bundled out of the Rio Olympic mens rugby sevens tournament by South Africa in a 22-5 quarter-final defeat.The BlitzBoks superior speed and strength at the breakdown were key ingredients in their four-tries-to-one victory at Deodoro Stadium on Wednesday night.Australia only qualified for the knockout stages by upsetting the second-seeded South Africans 12-5 in their make-or-break final pl match on Wednesday morning.But the world No.4 will consider their Games campaign a failure after missing the medal matches.We put a whole lot of hard work in over the last two years and to bow out so early is obviously shattering, said Australia captain Ed Jenkins.I thought we bounced back well from yesterdays performance to stay alive but it was a completely different South African side which fronted up today for that last game.Australia appeared the most at risk of being bundled out before the knockout stages following a pr start on day one and?the loss of playmaker Lewis Holland.?However, they were able to respond with a 12-5 win over the same South African side that would eventually knock them out of the tournament later in the day.The gutsy win was secured when veteran James Stannard, moving into Hollands five-eighth role, made a crucial turnover near fulltime to ensure progression to the last eight.New Zealand have not fared much better in its quest for sevens gold.The injury-plagued gold medal contenders, playing uncharacteristically slowly and without rhythm, had a nervous wait after falling 21-19 to unbeaten Great Britain.Down 21-0 at halftime, it appeared the Olympics were over for the All Blacks Sevens before rallying with three tries.Shocked by rugby minnows Japan on day one, they only qualified on for-and-against differential by one point thanks to Fijis efforts to hold out a spirited USA.Needing Fiji to beat the Americans by five points or more, the Kiwi side watched USA take a 14-12 lead early in the second half before the top seeds scored two quick tries.New Zealands reward is a quarter-final clash with Fiji in what many had predicted to be Thursday nights gold medal game.Despite its pr form, the New Zealanders still believe they have enough fire power to take gold.Sam Dickson, who sparked the fightback against the Brits, said their performances to lose to both Japan and GB have been really disappointing.In the other quarterfinals, France play Japan and Argentina meet Great Britain.

Jaromir Jagr Rangers Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but tk over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July.Michael Lumb believes Alex Hales will be out to silence his critics when Nottinghamshire take on Yorkshire in the Specsavers County Championship this weekend, live on Sky Sports. Hales, who has impressed at international level in limited-overs cricket, was given his chance in the Test arena for Englands tour of South Africa over the winter and while Alastair Cks side emerged victorious, the Nottinghamshire batsman struggled.However, Lumb, a team-mate of Hales at Trent Bridge, is confident the 27-year-old has what it takes to succeed at Test level and is backing him to provide a reminder of his ability in the build up to Englands first Test of the summer against Sri Lanka next month. Hes been great, he came to Old Trafford [during Nottinghamshires Championship game with Lancashire] for a couple of days and had a couple of hits so I know hes lking forward to getting going and silencing some of the critics he had over the winter, Lumb told Sky Sports.He is raring to go and wanting to show the critics and other people that hes world class and hell be working hard to keep his place in the Test team and play the first game. Its great to have him back. Hales struggled at the top of the order for England in South Africa Hales wont be the only England player in the Nottinghamshire ranks for the game with Yorkshire. Stuart Broad is also set to play for Mick Newells side and Lumb feels his presence is a significant bst.Its huge, hes the No 1 Test bowler in the world and having him in the side is awesome, he said. He helps out the younger bowlers and hes a leading influence in the field so to have him in these opening games, hopefully he can find some form and help us to win some games as well.One of those younger bowlers sure to benefit from playing alongside the England seamer is Jake Ball. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a fine start to the season and Lumb has high hopes for the England Lions quick.Jakes had a great start, said the 36-year-old. He had a gd winter with the Lions, I think he impressed with them, and hes come back and got out of the blocks really well.Hes put on a bit of pace, hes bowling quick and hes a gd lad. Theres big things for him in the future, hes started really well and hopefully thatll continue for a while. Jake Ball has started the season well for Nottinghamshire However, while Ball has begun the season in fine style, it has been an indifferent beginning to the 2016 campaign for Notts as a whole - victory over Surrey was followed by defeat at newly-promoted Lancashire.dddddddddddd Lumb though, is not overly concerned.Obviously, we got out of the blocks really well, winning the first game, we played some gd cricket and then unfortunately we went to Lancashire and got outplayed there, he admitted.It just shows the rollercoaster of Championship cricket, we were on a bit of a high and then you go and get beaten. Theres stuff that we can still work on, which is gd.Everyone says the same things early on: We want to win the Championship and this and that but I think this year were more about just doing our little process, getting our basics right and if we lk after those things hopefully results will come for us in the end.Division One is very strong, there are some strong sides knocking around and so, for us, its just taking each game as it comes and as long as we stick to our basics and our game plans then hopefully thatll take care of itself. Michael Lumb admits Notts were outplayed by Lancashire in their last outing The forthcoming game with Yorkshire, perhaps more than most, shows the strength of the top flight this season with both teams boasting numerous players who have performed well consistently in recent years and thats before you even get to England regulars such as Broad, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Rt, all of whom are expected to play.You lk at the two sides on paper and its almost like a Test match so the boys are up for it, said Lumb, who spent the early part of his career at Headingley.All the pressures on Yorkshire and were just trying to knock them off. Its exciting to be part of and thats what you want in these County Championship games, strong games, strong competitions. Were up for it, theyll be favourites, well just go out and enjoy the game and try and get one over on them.You can watch Nottinghamshire take on Yorkshire in County Championship Division One live on Sky Sports 2 HD.
