Glen Ella says England are determined to show against Australia that northern hemisphere attacks are not limited. New Orleans Saints Natrell Jamerson Jersey . Former Wallaby full-back Ella has been installed as the Grand Slam champions skills coach for the three Tests that begin in Brisbane on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.He was approached to take up the position by Eddie Jones - a friend since the pair were five and a former Randwick team-mate - during the Six Nations. The 57-year-old has been entrusted with the task of adding a new dimension to England, while acting as a sounding board to players keen to learn from a respected voice in the game.England and their Six Nations counterparts are derided by some in the southern hemisphere for their reliance on the set-piece at the expense of the vision and guile associated with Australia and New Zealand. England skills coach Glen Ella believes he can make progress with the team over a short period of time in Australia Ella, however, is reminded of the emergence of Wallabies greats such as George Gregan and Matt Giteau when working with the players he must now help guide to victory over his homeland.He said: Its definitely the perception down here of England playing a structured game and we want to prove that wrong. These guys are good, theyve got great skills.In Australia they dont give any credit to the northern hemisphere. They think Super Rugby is much better than the Six Nations. While some of that could be true, its up to us to prove that its not. Eddie Jones will put his unbeaten record as Englands head coach to the test against Australia this summer England are coming down here to test themselves. In a couple of years time, they want to be the best in the world. With Eddie behind them I think theyve got a good chance.To do that theyve got to play the southern hemisphere teams and thats just the way it is. Their skill levels are really good. Ive been really impressed with the squad in general.Their work ethic is fantastic. Theyre a young squad, they want to learn and they want to win. Its similar to when the likes of George Gregan and Stephen Larkham were coming through the system.I was assistant to Rod Macqueen in 2000 and 2001 and then to Eddie in 2003. The likes of Matt Giteau were coming into the system. England train for the first time in Brisbane as they prepare for their three-match Test series against Australia The England players are similar because theyre young, they want to learn and they want to be successful.Ella has only agreed an initial three-week contract but is confident of producing results quickly and he added: Its only for the tour I dont want to think about doing anything elseLets hold on until after the tour and well go after that. Weve had two field sessions and during one it was pouring with rain. On Monday was the first time weve had a good blow-out.The impact is minimal at this stage but hopefully, come the third Test, theyll be switched on and moving. You do need time to change. Youre not going to make massive increments over one session.Im just helping the guys along at this stage, giving them some hints, having a look at their running lines and adjusting them as I see fit.I hope I can have some influence so that by the time they come to Sydney theyll be playing the way Eddie wants them to play.

LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. Cheap Saints Jerseys Free Shipping . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. http://www.cheapsaintsjerseys.us/ . Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. In the 49th over of the Visakhapatnam Test, Cheteshwar Pujara pulled and drove successive Zafar Ansari deliveries for six and four. To the first ball, he rocked back to manufacture the length a little, and advanced down the crease to take the second on the full. Freeze frames from both these deliveries might illustrate a big difference between the two sides so far.As Ansari completes his action and the ball leaves his hand, Pujara has pushed on to the front foot to both deliveries. With the first, he sees the ball flat and goes back to use the depth of his crease. With the second, he sees the flight and charges out, not letting it pitch. And there is no way to tell from these freeze frames what Pujara is going to do.This is Pujara - or any other accomplished Asian batsman - at his best. Ready to move forward, picking the length early, and then attacking any error from the bowler - be it from the back foot or the front foot. Pujaras use of this movement out of the crease is a return to how he played on debut in Bangalore six years ago, charging out at every opportunity after a shooter had done him in in the first innings. In this series, he has charged out once every 8.5 balls of spin he has faced, scoring close to 15% of his runs against spin by stepping down the wicket.More important, though, is the timing of Pujaras charge. As those two deliveries suggest, he is always on the lookout to go forward, but he is never committed too early or so much that he leaves himself no way to bail out. By contrast, in Mohali, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Jos Buttler gave themselves no second chance and paid with their wickets.Bowling to Stokes, when Ravindra Jadeja is in an identical position to that of Ansari earlier, you know Stokes is coming. You can tell. Its not just the front foot shuffling across a little but also the movement in his upper body. He comes out all right, and is beaten on the outside edge. The difference between the two charges is a fraction of a second, but that premeditation can be lethal against good spinners. Buttler, looking to bat positively, left his crease often, but twice he charged out without reaching the pitch of the ball. The result: he was caught at short cover oncee, and dragged the other intended straight hit into the waiting hands of cow corner. New Orleans Saints Boston Scott Jersey. For the second time in the series, Moeen left the crease, found himself nowhere close to the pitch of the ball, froze and paid the ultimate price - lbw once, and chipping one to mid-on on another occasion. Moeen is often guilty of leaving the crease with premeditation and then not knowing what to do. His dismissal giving Yasir Shah the charge at Lords is a better known case in point.Now, it is up for debate whether spinners see that movement a fraction of a second too soon even as they are in the process of delivering. The bluff masters that they are, the spinners will tell you they do, but it is fair to assume they dont always spot it. Even if they dont always do, as batsmen you dont want to leave yourselves exposed to those occasions when they adjust and bowl wider or shorter.It doesnt help England that their spinners - apart from Adil Rashid - havent done much with the ball in the air. The Ashwin ball that got Moeen in Mohali dipped on him and drifted appreciably into the pads. Jadeja got Stokes with one that drifted away from his bat. Add Joe Roots dismissal in Visakhapatnam, and England have lost six wickets with batsmen out of the crease; India havent lost even one to a proper charge.Its not as though India batsmen havent ventured out: Pujara and M Vijay in particular have frequently used their feet to reach balls before they turn, but they have been more effective. Their charges have been less premeditated and swift once they do come at the ball. While Pujara has not hit one ball in the air after advancing down the wicket, Vijay has left the crease with the sole intention of hitting over the straight field to get himself a release from the intense concentration his game needs. Even when the batsmen have charged out too soon, there hasnt been much aerial deception from Englands spinners.To leave the crease and take a spinner on is an important tool for a batsman, but England have been doing so a fraction of a second too soon, and against better spinners.
