Manu Tuilagis aborted start to the season will extend to a second match as the Leicester centres wretched run with injury continues. Cheap Nike Flex Shoes Online .Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill has ruled Tuilagi out of Sundays Aviva Premiership clash with Newcastle because of the tight groin that also forced him to miss the defeat by Wasps last weekend.It is another frustrating setback for the 25-year-old, who has been severely disrupted by injury over the last two years including a career-threatening groin condition.Well look after Manu for the next couple of weeks. Hes about 80 per cent fit and if we really wanted him for Sunday we could push him, Cockerill said.But the right thing to do is to manage it and make sure that once he gets over the problem, its done for good.Its frustrating because Manu wants to play. But ultimately we have to be patient and get it right. You are always going to miss a player like Manu.In January Tuilagi returned from a 15-month absence caused by an injury known as Gilmores groin, only for his comeback to then be interrupted by two separate hamstring complaints and a knee issue.One of the hamstring problems forced him to miss Englands tour to Australia in June and it is over two years since his last international start.

Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Training camps are opening around the NHL with a little more elbow room than usual.Thanks to the World Cup of Hockey, more than 150 players and almost half the leagues head coaches werent on the ice with their NHL teams at the start of camp this week. The Chicago Blackhawks are barely recognizable without Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Corey Crawford, Marian Hossa and coach Joel Quenneville. The Washington Capitals dont have Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom or coach Barry Trotz and the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins are without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.Really weird, Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner said Friday. I was looking out on the ice and something doesnt seem right. Were obviously light on numbers, so thats kind of strange. Youre used to having just swarms of guys everywhere and it just doesnt feel that way this year.This is the first time since 2004 that the NHL has held a preseason tournament, and that event happened on the eve of the lockout that canceled the entire season. Camps were already opening later than usual because of the World Cup, and the first preseason games begin Sunday when the Columbus Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues have split-squad games in those cities. The real games begin Oct. 12.There isnt much time to get everyone on the same page. Perhaps thats why Penguins coach Mike Sullivan and Edmonton Oilers coach Todd McLellan raced back to be on the ice Friday.This is my responsibility to run this team and I love to do it, said Sullivan, who was an assistant for the U.S. team. Im excited to be a part of it. I didnt want to take any time off.Many World Cup players are being afforded a bit of time off before reporting to work. Washington general manager Brian MacLellan expects U.S. players T.J. Oshie, John Carlson and Matt Niskanen on the ice Monday.The 82-game season is a long enough grind that guys arent rushing back if they dont have to.I know a lot of the guys, at least the American guys, have talked about taking a few days off then going their teams, Kane said Thursday. Ill go back to Chicago and see whats in store and talk to (GM Stan Bowman) and Joel and kind of get a feel for what they want me to do, whats best for me. Cheap Nike Flex Running Shoes. Players from whichever teams lose in the World Cup semifinals this weekend wont be far behind. In the meantime, their absences open the door for others.Its good for guys who typically wouldnt get a look in camp to show the coaches and scouts and staff what they can do for the future if something happens, San Jose Sharks defenseman Paul Martin said. For the most part, the guys that are gone are guys who can step right back in and be the players that they are for this team. Theres not anything that well be lacking as far as chemistry. It just gives other guys a chance to step up and see what theyve got.The same can be said for coaches. Torontos Mike Babcock was able to check in on the Maple Leafs when they reported for physicals Thursday and is in touch with assistant Jim Hiller every day, just like Capitals associate coach Todd Reirden is with Trotz, a Babcock assistant with Team Canada.Reirden was a finalist for Calgarys coaching vacancy, so running camp in Trotzs absence is more on-the-job training for a head gig.Todds done a great job, MacLellan said. Hes a good communicator. Hes at the point in his career that hes ready to take on more responsibility and hes getting interviewed for head-coaching jobs.However strange these first few days of camp are as coaches and players trickle in, Babcock doesnt think there are any disadvantages to this different year.When the guys are no longer in the tournament theyll take some days off and rejoin the guys, he said. I just think its a win-win situation for (everyone). Anyone that can be involved in the World Cup should be involved in the World Cup because your growth individually and for your team is positive. And then, you know a few days of those veterans in training camp without me, they probably cherish it.---AP Sports Writers Will Graves in Pittsburgh and Josh Dubow in San Jose, California, contributed to this report.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno .

Warwickshire 119 for 2 (Ambrose 54*) beat Worcestershire 115 (Clarke 5-26) by eight wicketsScorecard Rikki Clarkes limited-overs best figures of 5 for 26 set Warwickshire cruising to an eight-wicket Royal London Cup victory over Worcestershire at Edgbaston. Wholesale Nike Basketball Shoes .Clarkes first List A five-for, which included three maidens as he bowled his 10-over allocation straight through, reduced the visitors to 19 for 6 - a position from which they could recover only partially to 115 all out. Will Porterfield and Tim Ambrose then shared an unbroken partnership of 79 as the Bears coasted home with more than 27 overs to spare.They now join their neighbours on five points in a group table which remains very tight due to so many early matches having been washed out.Worcestershire chose to bat but had cause to regret that decision when they crashed to 19 for 6 in the ninth over. The havoc was wreaked by a spell of superb, straight seam bowling from Clarke who took wickets with his fifth, 17th, 20th, 27th and 28th balls.Tom Kohler-Cadmore edged the allrounder to first slip and then, after Tom Fell was lbw to Keith Barker, Clarke dismissed four batsmen in 11 balls with a lethal blend of accuracy and pace. Alex Kervezee was bowled and Ross Whiteley, Daryl Mitchell and George Rhodes were pinned lbw, the last two with successive balls.Ben Cox and Joe Leach took the score to 41 to at last force a bowling change but Recordo Gordon came on and struck with his fifth ball, which Cox drove straight to Sam Hain at cover.Leach made a patient 29 from 65 balls with only two fours and Ed Barnard added 38 from 64 deliveries as the pair combined for 60 runs in 18 overs for the eighth over before the former, having batted with impressive restraint, was bowled on the back foot by Oliver Hannon-Dalby.Barnard perished in the next over when he drilled a return catch back to Jeetan Patel and when Jack Shantry lifted Patel to mid-off, where Keith Barker took a sharp head-high catch, the innings ended with 70 balls unused.Warwickshire openers Porterfield and Sam Hain reduced the target by a third before Hain edged Charlie Morris behind for 21. Morris made it two wickets in six balls when he trapped Jonathan Trott lbw but Porterfield finished on 37 not out, playing the perfect anchor role while Ambrose thrashed 54 from 42 balls to inject impetus to the chase.

Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. Collingwood recruit James Aish is living proof of why you shouldnt judge an AFL player too quickly.Aish finished fourth in the count for the 2014 Rising Star award but managed only 11 games in his second season at Brisbane.It was a combination of poor form, a finger injury, a broken jaw and near-constant speculation over his future.Nonetheless the midfielder arrived at the Magpies with great expectations last year, having been taken with pick No.7 in the 2013 draft.Aish struggled in the opening half of this season but since earning a recall for round 14 has been far more consistent, playing all eight games and showing plenty of class.He copped a lot of flak for it, were so quick to jump on guys, Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said of criticism levelled at Aish earlier this year.Aishys only in his third year. Hes played 25 or 30 games of footy. He was learning about his new teammates, coming to a new city in Melbourne that hes never lived in before.There was plenty of settling in that he had to do.Clearly hes been able to stick at it, see the bigger picture and continuue to work away. Cheap Wholesale Nike Basketball Shoes. His form over the last six weeks has been pretty encouraging.Buckley suggested many judges showed a lack of restraint across the league.I know we get very impatient with recruits, even with young players, he said.An old wise head once told me that you cant expect a third grader to pass matriculation.Youve got to get through primary school before you get to high school.The hot form of Adam Treloar, who like Aish joined the club during last years trade period, has helped the Magpies deal with the season-long absence of Dane Swan.Buckley remains unsure whether 2011 Brownlow medallist Swan will retire, having suffered a serious foot injury in round one.Hes in limbo a little bit. Hes still trying to work out what his bodys capable of and how his foot is healing, Buckley said.The next surgical opinion isnt going to be until late September, so hes working away now to make sure hes in shape to keep next year on the radar.

Hes come good.Despite heavy rains on Thursday that saw all roads blocked into the far western Queensland town, 3000 punters still made the journey and witnessed history being made.It won in the last couple of strides, Birdsville Race Club president David Brook said. We had Rebecca Kerwin, who won the cup (in 2003) on a horse called Marauding Lass back a fair while ago. But a lady trainer and a lady rider is rare.The crowds didnt get to see the famed red dust fly up from the track, insteead excavators, graders and front-enders worked to make the drenched dirt track available after a 55mm downfall on Thursday, and on Friday and Saturday there were still fears the Birdsville Cup wouldnt go ahead.

We then got the OK to go ahead.Despite the small crowd, the event lived up to its reputation for its spiritedness with the enthusiastic crowds lapping up the atmosphere, but remained well behaved according to Mr Brook.It was a very happy crowd, a good crowd. The roads have sort of been out of whack for a little while now. Its been a great day. ' ' ' 
GREEN BAY, Wis. Air Max Outlet Schweiz . -- Right guard T.J. Lang is optimistic a starting offensive line that hasnt been on the field together in seven months can jell in time for the start of the Green Bay Packers season.We havent all been out there, but I dont think theres any concern that were going to lose any chemistry, Lang said Tuesday.Us five, weve played a lot of football together, and we trust each other, we know what were doing.The Packers have had their preferred starting five since 2014, but this could be their last year together.Contracts for three starters are up after this season, and the team has some options in reserve after taking two linemen in this years draft.After missing the first week of training camp and then practicing in limited fashion last week, Lang felt a sense of urgency to be more active when the team returned to the practice field Tuesday night following the canceled Hall of Fame game two days earlier.The eighth-year pro, who spent the entire offseason recovering from surgery for a torn labrum, looked forward to participating in team drills this week and playing in the Packers first preseason game Friday against the Cleveland Browns.My shoulder feels healthy, I feel healthy, and Im just ready to go back in there and settle back in at my spot, Lang said. Im a competitive guy, its hard standing out there watching somebody else take your reps every single day.Lang, left tackle David Bakhtiari and Pro Bowl left guard Josh Sitton are entering the final year of their contracts, barring an extension from the team.Of the starting five linemen, only Sitton played every game last season, which was marred by a slew of injuries.The Packers are still waiting to have all five together again for the first time since the playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Jan. 16.Third-year center Corey Linsley remains on the physically unable to perform list because of a hamstring injury. Veteran right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who has dealt with knee injuries the past few years, also has missed some practice time early in camp, including Tuesday.Coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers arent overly concerned about the shaky health of the offensive line.Fourth-year pro JC Tretter, who has been filling in for Linsley with the starting group, didnt practice Tuesday because of illness.Rodgers said the impact on continuity with the start of the season still a month away is very minimal.Just want those guys healthy for Week 1, Rodgers said.Game notes Three of the teams remaining five players on the PUP list returned to practice Tuesday: WR Ty Montgomery, TE Jared Cook and LB Sam Barrington. Veteran WR Jordy Nelson (knee) remains out, along with Linsley. ... RB Eddie Lacy practiced after missing time last week with an ankle injury.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- Max Verstappen believes Sebastian Vettels post-race penalty at the Mexican Grand Prix was a small bit of justice following the bizarre events at the end of the race.Verstappen finished third on the road in Mexico, but was immediately demoted to fifth for cutting Turn 2 while defending position from Vettel on lap 68. Rather than cede the position immediately to Vettel -- as advised by his race engineer -- Verstappen held on to third until the end of the race, at which point he was given a 5-second penalty. As a result, Verstappen was told to leave the podium green room and Vettel took his place on the podium itself.Three hours after the race, Vettel was penalised for dangerous driving while defending position from Daniel Ricciardo on lap 70, promoting Verstappen to fourth and Ricciardo to third. Ironically, Vettel was penalised under a rule that was introduced in reaction to the way Verstappen had defended position at races earlier in the season, and the 19-year-old -- arguably an expert in the matter -- was under no doubt that the Ferrari drivver deserved his penalty. Air Max Günstig Schweiz. .I think it was a small bit of justice that the stewards made the decision to penalise Seb, he said after the results had been confirmed. It was clearly a wrong move which has been punished according to the rules.As long as we can stick to the rules every week then we wont have the frustration we felt after the race. Im really happy for Daniel to get on the podium after a strong drive and its a great result for the team.Verstappen also pointed out that his mistake on lap 68 bore similarities to Hamilton skipping Turn 2 at the start of the race and both should have been penalised consistently.When I went off the track towards the end I think it was pretty similar to Lewis on lap one, corner one. He went off and I felt he gained an advantage, I didnt even gain an advantage, I was ahead going into braking and when I came back on the track I was the same distance in front so I dont understand the penalty.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Wholesale Air Jordan 4 Canada . -- When Indiana athletic director Fred Glass woke up Thursday morning, he knew the Hoosiers football program would be turned upside down.By nightfall, Glass had collected Kevin Wilsons resignation, Tom Allens agreement to take over as head coach and was trying to swat away questions about whether Wilson was leaving because of player mistreatment.It was one of the strangest days in program history. Less than a week after becoming bowl-eligible for the second straight season, Wilson was out of a job because of what Glass described as philosophical differences.I thought the core of what we talked about boiled down to leadership and how you are a leader, Glass said. I think Kevin and I have some honest disagreements about how you go about that. Im not saying Im right and hes wrong. I think we concluded, maturely and appropriately, its time to go our separate ways.During a hastily arranged evening news conference, Glass never explained in detail how their approaches differed. He was, however, peppered with questions about whether his decision was linked to reports about medical complaints from players during Wilsons tenure.Each time, Glass downplayed the significance of the reports, though he did acknowledge athletic department officials hired an Indianapolis law firm to look into claims by some former players. The results, Glass said, showed Wilsons players were treated properly.The reason I can speak so confidently that we dont have any medical issues and that our medical care has been so robust is that the outside group found that to be the case, he said.Glass even cited the example of Wilsons own son, who has had concussions, to explain why Wilson was exceedingly cautious with head injuries.Backup quarterback Zander Diamont also came to Wilsons defense.Following Saturdays bowl-clinching victory over Purdue, Diamont announced he would not return next season because he could graduate this summer and had a history of head injuries. At the time, Wilson acknowledged he was surprised by Diamonts decision and had checked with Diamont to see if he may change his mind.I have no knowledge of my announcement last weekend having anything to do with Coach Wilson being fired. I certainly hope thats not the case, Diamont wrote on Twitter after word leaked of the impending change. Coach Wilson and IU football followed concussion protocol to the letter. Coach Wilson was completely supportive during my recovery and didnt want me back on the field until I was completely recovered and, beyond that, felt that I was 150%.Neither Wilson nor his agent responded to messages seeking comment. Glass also said no potential NCAA violations were involved.Wilson departs less than 10 months after agreeing to a six-year contract extension worth $15.3 million. Glass said Indiana is only on the hook for next years base salary, $542,000.Wilson went 26-47 in six seasons and was Indianas longest-tenured coach since Bill Mallory, the schools career leader in wins, left after the 1996 season. Wilsons teams had shown steady improvement over the years, earning their first back-to-back bowl bids in 25 years while tying the school record for most consecutive wins (four) against rival Purdue.Allens promotion from associate head coach and defensive coordinator takes effect immediately, avoiding a coaching search as Indiana (6-6, 4-5 Big Ten) waits to find out which bowl game it will play in. He agreed to a six-year deal. Glass said the financial details still have to be worked out but promised the payout would put him at a competitive scale in the Big Ten.Its hard to believe, Allen said. This day has been an absolute whirlwind.Wilson was an offensive assistant at Oklahoma from 2002-10, working with Bob Stoops to create some of the most explosive offenses in college football. He and the Sooners went to 10 consecutive bowls, including three national championship games, and the 2008 offense under his guidance set NCAA records by scoring at least 60 points in five straight games and 716 total points.He was considered a red-hot hire, brought in to replace Bill Lynch, and he didnt disappoint. Hs aggressive, wide-open offense injected excitement into a floundering program that was losing fans.Over his first three seasons, things did not go smoothly. But by Wilsons fourth season, there were signs of progress and he backed it up with consecutive six-win seasons in which the Hoosiers became increasingly competitive against the likes of Ohio State and Michigan.Transitions in this profession are hard under any circumstances, let alone this. My heart breaks for him, Allen said. I never expected this to happen.Allen returned to his home state last offseason and presided over one of the nations biggest defensive turnarounds .Before coming to Bloomington, Allen was the defensive coordinator at South Florida and served as a defensive assistant at Ole Miss, Arkansas State, Drake, Lambuth and Wabash. His only previous head coaching experience came from 2004-06 at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.Player mistreatment allegations have cropped up elsewhere in recent years.Illinois fired coach Tim Beckman a week before the 2015 season following allegations that he mistreated players, interfered in player medical decisions and pressured players to play hurt. A law firm hired by the school to investigate said it found evidence of both interference in medical decisions and pressure on players to play through injuries. Beckman denied any wrongdoing and was paid $250,000 as part of a settlement with the university.---AP Sports Writer David Mercer contributed to this report.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Air Jordan 4 Cheap Canada .

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The new judge overseeing the long-delayed criminal proceedings against three former high-ranking Penn State administrators heard arguments Thursday about whether the remaining charges should be thrown out.The hearing in Harrisburg before Judge John Boccabella could be the prelude to trial or lead to the dismissal of charges in the case that began almost five years ago. Boccabella didnt indicate when he will rule but did drop a perjury charge against former athletic director Tim Curley.All three defendants were in court: Curley, who is now retired; the schools former president Graham Spanier, still a faculty member; and former vice president Gary Schultz, retired.They are accused of not responding properly to a 2001 complaint by an assistant coach that Jerry Sandusky was sexually abusing a boy in a team shower and also are accused of putting children in danger.Sandusky, a retired longtime defensive coach at Penn State, was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse in 2012 and is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence. His case is on appeal.Some of whats at issue in the administrators criminal case:Contact with childrenDefense lawyers argued that the allegations require the defendants to have been actively supervising the welfare of children but that their job duties did not include that responsibility.They also noted that the language of state law in 2001, when the incidents occurred that led to the current charges, required people to report suspected abuse if they regularly came in contact with children and had reasonable cause to think a child coming before them had been abused.Deputy Attorney General Patrick Schulte said a recent court decision in a high-profile clergy abuse case means the issue is not direct supervision of children but supervision of child welfare.The Penn State athletic facilities turned into the breeding ground for Jerry Sanduskys child exploitation and child molestation, Schulte told the judge.He said laws designed to protect children havve to be interpreted broadly and that emails among the defendants are evidence they did more than stay silent -- that they decided not to act on the report about Sandusky in a team shower. Air Force 1 Cheap Canada. Conspiracy countThe attorney generals office is seeking to add a new count, of conspiracy to commit endangering the welfare of children, against all three defendants.In a set of motions filed Wednesday, prosecutors said they were making the request because of a Superior Court decision in June that threw out conspiracy charges and other offenses linked to them.The court filings say endangering the welfare of children wasnt thrown out, so its related conspiracy charge should be permitted.There was no discussion of the motions during the court proceeding. Boccabella said he would deal with that issue at some later time.Statute of limitationsThe defendants believe the two-year statute of limitations has expired for crimes that allegedly occurred 15 years ago, but prosecutors counter with a claim the men engaged in continuing conduct so the time limits should not apply.Curley lawyer Caroline Roberto told the judge that the case, given the passage of time, shows why the statutes of limitations are treated as sacrosanct in the criminal justice system.Chief Deputy Attorney General Laura Ann Ditka said the defendants were aware of what they were doing by not reporting Sandusky.They made a choice, and each and every day they engaged in conduct that furthered that choice, Ditka said.Change of venueSpanier attorney Bruce Merenstein said previous charges involved a grand jury that met in Harrisburg, but Superior Court threw them out.He suggested that now it would make more sense to hold the trial in Centre County, near the Penn State campus.Boccabella said he is not sure theres a better location for the trial than Harrisburg.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The last group of the League of Legends World Championship (Worlds), Group B, needed every single game to determine its final two teams. Stitched Baseball Jerseys . At one point, there were three teams with a record of 2-3 with only two games left to play for the day -- it truly was a free-for-all group. In the end, the defending Worlds champion, SK Telecom T1 (SKT) and Cloud 9 (C9) qualified for the quarterfinals.Winner of the day: SK Telecom T1The cream of the crop showed up in elite form for the final day of the group stage. SKT showcased its versatility in the draft phase and its game play. The South Korean team snowballed the teams it was expected to beat (I May) and played disciplined and calculated League of Legends to prevent potential upsets against C9 and Flash Wolves. Scarier still, every member of SKT played a standout game. Whether it was the support, the AD carry, or even the weaker top lane, it was a balanced attack and dominant day. SKT should be the favorite for the rest of Worlds if its group play was any indication.Losers of the day: I May and Flash WolvesI May almost lucked itself into a quarterfinals berth, but the sloppy play that plagued the Chinese team continued until its exit from the group stage. I May was either out-drafted in composition (SKTs poke-heavy lineup) or just outplayed (C9s winning the early game). Even in its lone victory over the Flash Wolves, the team played aimlessly after it took an objective and gold lead. I May was simply not ready to move on and every team, with the exception of Flash Wolves throw, exposed the gap.Flash Wolves fell into this category based off of its record and schedule. Flash Wolves needed to beat the top team from the group, SKT, in order to enter a tiebreaker with C9 but failed to do so. The team did not necessarily play poorly, it just couldnt hang long enough to force a tie. One team needed to lose out of C9 and Flash Wolves and the better team exited.Team that needed improvement: Cloud 9C9 played well enough to qualify out of its group, but there were still many shortcomings and errors in its outings. All in all, the North American team looked strong in one and a half games and rather weak for the rest of its matchups. The teams damage-dealers were wholly inconsistent and individual play was necessary at multiple situations to bail the team out. In its game against SKT, it was just Jung Impact Eon-yeong that made a lasting impression, but then he disappeared for the rest of the day. After that, there were only isolated standout performances from each of the core farmers of C9, Nicolaj Jensen Jensen and Zach Sneaky Scuderi.C9 played most of its games with the late-game in mind and forced the opposition to crawl at its pace -- which was a positive if the opposition was also weak in that department. But, the downside to the strategy is that its simple to beat: just aggressively punish C9s weaker lanes and rotate for advantageous forced fights. If C9 wants to continue its Worlds journey, it needs to adapt and develop different strategies outside of its mid and late game focus. Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys .

Somerset 257 for 5 (Abell 79) trail Hampshire 338 (Ervine 103, McLaren 61, Leach 6-108) by 81 runsScorecard Tom Abell gave a reminder of his immense promise as Somerset responded positively to Hampshires first innings score of 338 on the second day of the Specsavers County Championship match at Taunton.The 22-year-old opener, who has not enjoyed the best of seasons in four-day cricket, hit 79, off 132 balls with 11 fours, sharing an opening stand of 87 with Marcus Trescothick, who made 36, as the hosts closed on 257 for 5.Peter Trego contributed 42, James Hildreth 40 and Jim Allenby 37 not out, but none of the home batsmen were able to push on to the big score needed to establish control of the game.Earlier, Jack Leach had finished with 6 for 108 as Hampshire added 57 to their overnight score of 281 for 6, David Wainwright making a valuable 35 not out. The left-arm spinner now has 43 first class wickets to his name this season.The ball turned from ball one of the day, but more for the Somerset spinners, whose counterparts were unable to settle on the right pace to exploit the pitch to the full. Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys China. From an overnight 281 for 6, the visitors slipped to 303 for 9 before a valuable last-wicket stand of 35 between Brad Wheal and David Wainwright, who contributed 35 not out with the ball deviating considerably for Leach and fellow left-arm spinner Roelof van der Merwe.Leach sent back Lewis McManus, Mason Crane and Wheal. But Hampshire could feel satisfied with their efforts as both sides collected three bonus points from the innings.Somerset were left with nine overs to bat before lunch and reached the interval on 40 without loss, Trescothick and Abell surviving comfortably against six overs of seam and three of spin.Trescothick looked in little bother until trying to hit Wainwright over the top and falling to a catch at long-on. His disappointment was matched by that of Chris Rogers, who had made only 11 when giving legspinner Mason Crane the charge and offering a leg-side stumping to McManus. ' ' '
