Despite not having tasted defeat to an English or Great Britain side for over a decade, Kangaroos prop Matt Scott admits the team are expecting the toughest match of their Four Nations campaign on Sunday (0100 Monday AEDT).With two Queensland greats in Mal Meninga and Wayne Bennett in opposite coaching boxes, this game has been eagerly anticipated ever since Meningas controversial comments about his former coach in a newspaper column earlier this month.Bennetts been under fire from the English media following their teams defeat to New Zealand two weeks ago followed by two taciturn post-match TV interviews conducted by the veteran coach.Meningas side have had no such issues with the coachs relaxed approach and two relatively comfortable wins over Scotland and New Zealand leading to a happy camp.Scott, a veteran of three UK tours, believes Meningas experience gained from coaching 10 State of Origin series has been crucial in producing an environment geared around success.Hes a relaxed guy and was a relaxed player and with the Queensland side it was always about having fun, Scott said.Blokes getting on, but most importantly getting the job done, is crucial and that is what he did with the Maroons from 2006 and there are a lot similarities here.Its in stark contrast to the approach of Tim Sheens, who stood down after seven years in charge having failed to win the 2015 Four Nations series.Sheensy was a little bit more intense in what we did, Scott said.It was a lot more video and structure whereas Mal has been a lot more focused on the feeling around the group, in the jersey and the feeling of what it means to play for Australia.Scott will be at the coalface in the starting front row at the Olympic Stadium against Sam Burgess, James Graham and Co and he admits being wary of the threat of an England side who have to win the game to avoiding exiting the tournament.Its going to be physical and it going to be a real test for both packs, he said.I think theyll be a lot better than they were against Scotland but its definitely a match both sides will have been looking forward to.Meninga has made two changes to his starting line-up with Cooper Cronk recalled after sitting out the win over the Kiwis along with Josh Dugan whos preferred to Justin ONeill.Cronk replaces Michael Morgan, and Shannon Boyd is replaced by Tyson Frizzel.However, Boyd is on stand-by to replace Sam Thaiday, should the veteran Queensland forward fail to recover from a knee injury.Team: Darius Boyd, Valentine Holmes, Greg Inglis, Josh Dugan, Blake Ferguson, Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk, Matt Scott, Cameron Smith, Aaron Woods, Boyd Cordner, Matt Gillett, Trent Merrin. Interchange: David Klemmer, Tyson Frizell, Michael Morgan, Sam Thaiday, Michael Morgan, Shannon Boyd, Justin ONeill. (two to be omitted).

TEMPE, Ariz. -- No matter that it wasnt a work of art, the Arizona Cardinals got a much-needed victory, but they lost their two starting guards to what appeared to be serious ankle injuries.Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that the team was still in the evaluation process of Evan Mathis and Mike Iupati.Mike is looking a little more promising than Evan at this moment, Arians said. Whether or not there will be roster moves, well talk about it over the weekend, Steve (general manager Steve Keim) and I.Arians praised the play of backups Earl Watford and John Wetzel, especially Wetzel, normally a tackle who hadnt played guard since training camp.After the 33-21 win at San Francisco on Thursday night, the Cardinals are 2-3. They wont practice again until next Wednesday.That still gives them five days of practice before a Monday night home game against the New York Jets.Its a mini-bye week, Arians said. We should get a lot of guys back. Some of the veteran guys can heal up and still have an extra day of practice for the Jets.Defensive tackle Calais Campbell, who had an interception and two sacks -- one for a safety, welcomed the time off.Thats the biggest benefit of playing Thursday night, he said. You dont get a lot of time to prepare and take care of your body when you play Thursday. Its always tough, but the one benefit is its pretty much a bye week to get massages, flush your system out, just get back to feeling good.Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer was hopefully in the last of the (concussion) protocol. Will Palmer be back for the Jets game?I cant say for sure, Arians said, but he sure looks good in there lifting weights.With Palmer out, backup Drew Stantons statistics were unremarkable (11-for-28 for 124 yards). But he did throw two touchdown passes to Larry Fitzgerald and didnt commit a turnover.That Cardinals trailed 7-0 and had punted all six times they had the ball when they made probably the biggest play of the game.With 1:55 to play in the half, Chandler Jones batted Blaine Gabberts pass into the air and Campbelll gathered it in at the San Francisco 21-yard line.ddddddddddddI was trying to bat it myself. It got batted before it got back to me, Campbell said, so I had my eye on the ball the whole time. ... Growing up playing basketball I averaged 16 rebounds in high school. That was in my mind. If the ball was in the air I was going to go get it.On the next play, Stanton threw to a wide open Fitzgerald and it was 7-7 at the half.David Johnson rushed for 157 yards, the most in an NFL game this season. But, as he has in the past, Arians found things to criticize.Oh, he had some deficiencies in this game, Arians said. He left another hundred yards out there. That same damn pass route that he screwed up in the end zone, he did it again. Im changing the name of the play so he cant screw it up anymore. Then I can cheer for him. He ran extremely well, but he did put the ball on the ground and he cannot have that.Arians loves for his Cardinals to pass the ball but he turned to Johnson and his backup Andre Ellington on the drive that sealed the victory.The Cardinals went 76 yards in 12 plays, using up 7:12 in the process. Eleven of the plays were running plays. The lone pass went to Johnson for 21 yards.Next up is a matchup with Jets coach Todd Bowles, the defensive coordinator the first two years Arians was in Arizona.I dont look at it that way, Arians said. Its the Jets. He and I dont get to play.Game notes Arians said inside linebacker Kevin Minter has a mild concussion. ... Michael Floyd didnt have a catch and dropped a couple. Arians said Floyd is pressing and the fact the wide receiver is in a contract year has a lot to do with it. ... Arians said the special teams played the best of any game since hes been in Arizona. ... Outside linebacker Markus Golden leads the NFL with six sacks but has played one more game than the other top players.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online Stitched Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Outlet College Jerseys For Sale Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys For Sale Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
