    New coach Wayne Bennett wants his England players to have a break from Super League to take part in an international weekend in the southern hemisphere in 2017. Chad Bettis Jersey .Bennett, currently preparing for his first match in charge of the English national side against France on Saturday week, is already looking ahead to the 2017 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.He wants his players to be made available for a preseason training camp, followed by one-off game Down Under in mid-season.That will bring back haunting memories of Great Britains ill-fated trip to Sydney for a one-off match in 2002 which ended in a 64-10 humiliation, but the Rugby Football League has since met with limited success in their attempts to provide meaningful mid-season competition for the national team, dispensing with matches against France and the Exiles.Now Bennett wants to use the window in the NRL in May to add an England game to the ANZAC Test and the clashes of the Pacific nations in Sydney.In Australia we have a bye week during the year when Australia and New Zealand play each other, Bennett said. Teams like Samoa, Fiji and Papua New Guinea are all coming to be part of that week and playing each other too in that weekend.Theres an opportunity for England to come and be a part of that. Weve got a great opportunity where we can play more Test matches -- its not going to be perfect but we can play more international games.Bennett points to the fact that when England run out at Avignons Parc des Sports on Saturday week, it will be almost 11 months since their last appearance.His proposal, along with that of a preseason camp, will put him on a potential collision course with the players Super League employers, re-opening the club-versus-country debate and adding to the workload of the elite players amid fears of burnout.Bennett, who says he is happy to bring his Brisbane Broncos team over to England for the 2017 World Club Challenge in February, plays down those fears, insisting that the high workload is necessary to fund well-paid salaries.Players in the UK have played over 30 games yes, but over here youve got guys with at least 30, he said. Theres Origin, three playoff games and then pre-season and the Auckland Nines and things like that -- plus a Test match in the middle of the year.Some will have over 30 too, but everyone gets well paid today, dont forget. For that to happen youve got to have a product and its got to be competitive. You cant get paid that level of money and have a 16-round season, it just wouldnt happen. Ian Desmond Jersey .

Herbie Blash will step down as the FIAs deputy race director at the end of the current season after two decades in the role.Blashs tenure in F1 started in 1965, working with privateer Lotus entrant Rob Walker, before becoming race engineer to Jochen Rindt three years later. He was team manager at Brabham between 1972 and 1988.After spells as sporting director at Brabham and Yamaha, Blash became FIA deputy race director, a role he has held ever since. At the end of the season he will replaced by Laurent Mekies, who joined the FIA as safety director in 2014.FIA president Jean Todt paid tribute to Blash, saying: I would personally like to thank Herbie for all of his hard work for the FIA over the past 21 years, and especially for his contribution in maintaining Formula Ones place at the pinnacle of motor sport. Along with [race director] Charlie [Whiting], Herbie has been instrumental in the seamless running of grand prix races for over two decades, and we are pleased that he will continue to work with the FIA in future.Replacing someone with Herbies immense experience was never going to be easy. However,, we are fortunate to be able to appoint Laurent Mekies to this position. Rockies Jerseys For Sale. Laurent brings a wealth of Formula One experience, and has been responsible for driving the FIAs safety agenda since joining us.Combining his strong Formula One history and work as the FIAs Safety Director, I am confident that he will ensure that the FIAs flagship single-seater championship continues to set the benchmark for race management and safety -- a status that his predecessor, Herbie, can take great pride in helping to nurture.Charlie Whiting, who has worked as the FIAs race director since 1997, said: I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to Herbie for his years of tireless work for our sport. It has been a huge pleasure to be alongside him for almost two decades.Of course Herbie will be hard to replace but, with Laurents extensive experience in F1, Im sure he will be a worthy replacement, he will also be able to bring a new dimension of experience to our team of F1 officials. NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Stitched Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap Jerseys Throwback Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys ' ' '
