Travel bugs can be enigmatic things. Cheap Chiefs Jerseys . Sometimes an illness seemingly stubborn and debilitating can clear up fairly soon on return to familiar climes, home-cooked meals and friendlier time zones. Others hang around, necessitating visits to the doctor, medication and extra rest - even if the trip away was meant to be a holiday in the first place.Over two days at home, Australias cricketers have found themselves with a strong dose of the second variety. The early passages of this Test had suggested that the teams struggles on the road were largely related to foreign conditions and home-ground priorities. But the batting decline that took place at the WACA bore an uncanny resemblance to the way the team went to pieces in Sri Lanka, even though conditions could not possibly have been more different.More specifically, the way Australia slid from 0 for 158 to 244 all out - after allowing South Africa to wriggle out of an ordinary start on day one - looked more or less a carbon copy of the way things panned out in the teams previous Test, in Colombo. Having been 5 for 26, Sri Lanka made it to 355. In response, Australia slid from 1 for 267 to 379 all out, surrendering their best chance of winning the match in the process.So much about all this felt familiar. Through Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, the South Africa batsmen were pushed into early trouble, before a resilient lower order and tail pulled them out of it. Through David Warner and Shaun Marsh, the Australians seemed on course to fly past South Africas tally, before one wicket begat two, three, four and then a rush through the tail.What has become apparent is this: Australia are not consistent enough right now to follow through on early good work, nor are they strong enough in middle-order batting to recover from a poor start. On the contrary, not even strong ones seem to be enough. When South Africa pushed back, as the captain Faf du Plessis had pledged they would, Steven Smiths team fell in an unsightly heap.There is no starker illustration of the worrying lack of depth in the batting line-up than the fact Mitchell Marsh (one Sheffield Shield century in his life) is walking in to bat at No. 6, while a wicketkeeper/batsman of Quinton de Kocks undoubted class must bide his time at No. 7. The Marsh and Peter Nevill duo at six and seven looks the weakest middle-order pairing in an Australian Test side since 1988, in the days before Ian Healy began to redefine the wicketkeepers batting value for Australia, then Adam Gilchrist and Brad Haddin accelerated it.Now it isnt as though the Australians are unaware of all this. The selection chairman Rod Marsh had emphasised the need for lower-order runs by pointing out that Jackson Bird had missed out on the squad by dint of his batting rather than bowling, as the former junior batsman and now seamer Joe Mennie was preferred. Equally he singled out Marsh and Nevill as needing to make more runs at the pivot point between batsmen and bowlers. Before the match, Smith had spoken of the pair: Those guys have been working really hard, the selectors have said they want Mitch Marsh to come out and score more runs, but I have watched him pretty closely over the last six months and I think hes made a lot of improvement to his game, weve been working on him playing the ball a bit softer in defence, I know if he spends a lot of time in the middle he can score incredibly quickly, he hits the ball as hard as anyone so it is about making sure he is out there long enough to score big runs.There seems something slightly contradictory about Marshs commission. On one level he is meant to make the most of his innate power at the crease, yet on the other build his defence in order to play the long innings expected of a No. 6. The result appears now to be a batsman confused, trying to bat properly without the technical tools to do so, while at the same time removing the danger to opposition sides that may be created by his potential for rapid scoring.Nevill, meanwhile, is repeatedly finding himself batting with an increasingly jittery tail, unable to change the momentum of the game with brazen attacks on the bowlers because it simply isnt his style. Alongside Adam Voges, Nevill played decently enough this day, until he was harshly ruled to have been caught off bat and pad at slip - little evidence for contact with the former could be found on replays.So it was that South Africa found themselves in control of the match despite losing the services of Dale Steyn on the very same day. Painful as that shoulder injury looked, the wider malady in Perth is clearly with the hosts. Like a stubborn travel bug, Australias batting malady is overstaying its welcome.

Hawks passion for working out could have him in position to make a quick impact with the Atlanta Falcons, who badly need help at linebacker.Hawk said he never stopped working out after being released by Cincinnati in April and would have continued his routine even if there was no chance of extending his career.I never really stopped doing anything, Hawk said. Whether or not a team called, I was going to be ready. I enjoy working out.The Falcons signed Hawk, 32, on Tuesday. The team hopes he can draw upon his 10 years in the NFL, including nine with Green Bay, and be ready to play in Sundays game at Denver.Thats a short time to pick up a defensive scheme. Hawk insisted its not an unrealistic request.Why not? Hawk asked Thursday before his second practice with the team. Everyone here is a football player. Its what we do. Its what Ive done since I was in the second grade.Hawk said Atlanta has a good scheme to learn quickly.The great thing they do here, especially defensively, is they dont over-complicate things, he said. They have their defense and they try to perfect it. They tweak things here and there and make sure theyre doing the right things, playing fast and playing hard. I respect that. I think thats the best thing about this whole team.The Falcons need help at linebacker following a spree of injuries.Atlanta veteran Sean Weatherspoon was placed on injured reserve with an Achilles tendon injury he suffered in last weeks win over Carolina. Rookie starter Deion Jones left the game with an ankle injury.Another rookie, DeVondre Campbell, was held out last week with an ankle injury. Paul Worrilow, a former starter who had been playing behind Jones, also missed the game with a groin injury.Coach Dan Quinn said Hawk is looking like a good fit. Cyber Monday Chiefs Jerseys. We were very pleased on his first day, Quinn said before Thursdays practice, adding that Hawks understanding of the Falcons coverages totally came across.Its not going to be an extensive package for him. We want to make sure that the things he does know he can really fly and let his football playing ability take over as opposed to too many checks.Jones, Campbell, 2015 first-round pick Vic Beasley Jr., a linebacker-defensive end, and 2016 first-rounder Keanu Neal, a safety, have provided more speed and athleticism to the defense. The high-scoring offense has earned the headlines as the Falcons (3-1) have taken the NFC South lead. Quinn is counting on more big plays from the defense in the future.Hawk said he had been following the Falcons from his home in Columbus, Ohio, even before he was called this week.I definitely knew I wouldnt have left Ohio for a team that looked like they werent going to win or wasnt on a winning path, he said. I had only heard great things about Atlanta, even before they started out 3-1. It just turned out that I was lucky they were the one that called.LaRoy Reynolds likely would start at weakside linebacker if Jones and Worrilow cant play. Philip Wheeler is the backup for Campbell.Campbell, Jones and Worrilow were held out on Wednesday and Thursday.The Falcons initially said Jones had a calf injury. Quinn said the pain moved around a little to Jones ankle.Quinn said the new description of the injury is not more of a concern.---AP NFL websites: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Cheap Jerseys 2019 Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Throwback Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '
