New Zealand coach Steve Hansen has paid Dane Coles the ultimate compliment after the hooker was again forced to play with a painful rib injury in the 42-8 Bledisloe hiding of the Wallabies. Howie Long Raiders Jersey .While bug-gate and the Wallabies lacklustre performance dominated the post-match discussions, Hansen lauded Coles efforts after the hooker was called into action following Codie Taylors head knock in just the second minute.Originally scheduled not to play, Coles was added to the bench on Friday after starting hooker Nathan Harris was ruled out with a knee injury.While Hansen admitted he didnt want to play Coles because of the rib injury, the All Blacks coach couldnt have been prouder of the hookers efforts as he fronted with his trademark tenacity and helped cause Australia all sorts of problems up front.Well he went 78 [minutes], he wasnt too bad, Hansen said in reference to his change in tune from Thursday to Friday having originally left Coles off the team-sheet.He was blowing and hes probably sore, but theyre all sore. Hes tough, theres no doubt out about that. I dont know whether thats because hes got no brains or hes got too many. Im not sure.But he epitomises the team I think; he got called in late, he wasnt really expecting to play because we didnt want to play him and came out and played really well and left himself out there on the track.And when someone does that for you I think you can only pay them the biggest complement that you can. Hes a champion, and he played like one.Coles returned a try, 10 runs for 22 metres, three defenders beaten, one clean break and seven tackles from his nights work as the All Blacks put a poor Wallabies outfit to the sword.With Harris gone for the season and Taylor set to be sidelined by concussion protocols, Coles will likely have to suit up for the return battle in Wellington next week.Playing 78 minutes in Sydney certainly wont help expedite Coles recovery from the rib injury he suffered against the Sharks in the opening weekend of the Super Rugby playoffs. Its likely hell instead have to rely on another round of pain-killing injections.Unbelievable, you know he was squealing pre-game, four injections into his ribs, hes a tough rooster, man-of-the-match Beauden Barrett said of Coles.It what we needed tonight obviously with Codie going down, so you know I cant say enough about Colesy -- hes a tough man and a great player. John Matuszak Youth Jersey . The recently retired Stern was elected Friday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined with the class of 2014 on Aug. Ronnie Lott Youth Jersey . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. http:///...kson-Raiders-Jersey/ . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. CHICAGO -- Jimmy Butler and the Chicago Bulls were pushed by the Orlando Magic in the third quarter, and their response delighted coach Fred Hoiberg.Butler scored 20 points, Taj Gibson had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Bulls routed the Magic 112-80 on Monday night.Dwyane Wade also scored 16 points and Doug McDermott finished with 11 for Chicago, which had dropped three straight. Wade went 7 for 12 from the field in 25 minutes, bouncing back nicely from a dismal four-point performance in Saturdays 111-94 loss at Indiana.The Bulls held the Magic to 23 percent shooting and 28 points in the second half.Were not going to win too many ballgames if our defense is not doing what it did, Wade said.Orlando had won three straight, but it played listless defense as Chicago pulled away in the third quarter. Aaron Gordon scored 15 points for the Magic, and Evan Fournier added 13 on 6-for-12 shooting.I just think our defense wasnt there, Gordon said. And then offensively, because our defense wasnt there, we didnt execute as well. Our defense bled into our offense.Butler was a perfect 10 for 10 as the Bulls went 25 for 31 at the free-throw line, compared to 5 for 6 for the Magic. The Bulls have made at least 20 free throws in their last four games and five of their first seven.We scored the ball decently well, Butler said. But whenever were guarding we make the game a lot easier for ourselves.Chicago led by as many as 17 points in the first half, but Gordon had a cutting dunk and Fournier made a 3-pointer to help Orlando close to 63-58 in the third.The Bulls then ripped off the next 13 points, and the Magic never threatened again. Gibson, Rajon Rondo and Robin Lopez closed the run with three straight layups, making it 76-58 with 6:05 left.We turned the ball over too much and they made all the hustle plays, Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. If youre going to win on thhe road, you have to make all the hustle plays and you have to take care of the ball. Howie Long Youth Jersey. McDermott and Butler each converted a three-point play to help Chicago to an 88-63 lead heading into the final period. The Magic shot 4 for 21 in the third and committed six turnovers in the quarter.Thats the defensive mindset that we have to have for the entire game, Hoiberg said.TIP-INSMagic: Nikola Vucevic had 11 points and six rebounds. ... The Magic shot 39 percent (33 for 85) from the field. ... Asked about the discrepancy at the line, Vogel responded: I have no comments, we will discuss that through proper channels.Bulls: Isaiah Canaan provided some energy off the bench and finished with 10 points. ... Butler had seven assists and five rebounds. ... The Bulls outrebounded the Magic 56-39.FAST STARTThe Bulls used a 15-0 run to grab a 37-24 lead after one. The first quarter has been key for Chicago so far this season.The Bulls allowed 20 points in the first quarter in each of their first three games, all wins. They allowed at least 31 in each of the previous three games, all losses.Its as simple as that, Hoiberg said. Need to get off to a good start. When we do that we generally play a good game.COMING UPThe Bulls picked up a little momentum heading into a difficult stretch. Eight of Chicagos next nine games are on the road, including Wades return to Miami on Thursday night after he signed with his hometown Bulls in the offseason.UP NEXTMagic: Host Minnesota on Wednesday night. The Magic have won five straight and 13 of 15 against the Timberwolves.Bulls: Visit Atlanta on Wednesday night. The Bulls were swept by the Hawks last season for the first time since 2008-09.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
