mporary pitch to another and its shown. In a way, they have an unfair advantage over several other side

Steve Borthwick credits his accelerated coaching development to Eddie Jones as a place on Warren Gatlands British and Irish Lions staff beckons. Nike Air Vapormax Plus 2018 .Borthwick is set to take charge of the forwards in New Zealand next summer and, although an appointment has yet to be finalised, Gatland has held talks with the England assistant coach.The 37-year-old ended his playing career at Saracens in 2014 and immediately took up a role with Jones in Tokyo, using his line-out expertise to help Japan record their finest World Cup performance including a shock upset of South Africa.When Jones was recruited by Twickenham last November, among his first steps was to prise Borthwick away from Bristol, and Englands pack have flourished under his guidance.Jones has already given his blessing to any of his lieutenants joining the Lions, and Borthwick insists it is down to the Australian that he is in the position to be considered.If Im asked the question by the Lions, it would be an honour to be asked and a privilege to do it, Borthwick said. I have definitely benefited from working under Eddie Jones, who has been phenomenal for me as a young coach developing.I have an awful lot to learn, but I feel very fortunate that Ive got a head coach like him and some excellent assistant coaches that I work with.Borthwicks promotion by the Lions would be welcomed by Mako Vunipola, his former Saracens team-mate and a tourist when the elite of British and Irish rugby crushed Australia in 2013.Steve was a great coach when he was still playing, Vunipola said. It was like having your forwards coach out there with you.It made it very easy for us as players and it is the same now that he is coach. That detail makes it very easy to understand.He picks up on anything. From my job as a lifter, you think you have a great lift but he will pick up on where your feet are positioned.Even the smallest things make a massive difference for him. He is all about getting the basics right first and the rest will come along with it.It is the way he trains, too. He is always bringing in new ways of making us better lifters, better jumpers.It was obvious he was going to be a great coach. He is a great leader and when he talks, people listen. That is not a bad trait to have as a coach. Air Max 97 Ultra Nere . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Nike Air Max 97 Plus . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said.How do you fall so far, so fast? After filling the trophy cabinet with all the silverware last season, it looks as though Leeds might not even make the Top 8. Results in the Premier League seem to have been mirrored in the Super League and Leeds losses have looked like those of Chelsea last autumn. Whats gone wrong?A colleague has suggested that last year was the anomaly because Leeds struggled in the four seasons prior to 2015, finishing sixth, third, fifth and fifth. Perhaps they were just very luck in 2015.One thing is certain: their attack is nowhere near as good as it was in 2015. Theyve scored less than half the number of tries than they did in the opening 10 rounds of last season.Why? Finishing opportunities and accuracyWell, it isnt due to a lack of field position. Most tries in rugby league are scored when a team get close to their opponents tryline (ie inside their opponents 20-metre zone). Comparison showing tries scored in 2015 and in 2016 after round 10 This year, Leeds have spent more time inside that area but seem to have forgotten how to score.After round 10 in 2015, Leeds had 260 play-the-balls in the oppositions 20-metre zone and had scored 32 tries.Fast forward to round 10 in 2016, and Leeds have had 320 play-the-balls in the 20-metre zone but have scored only 19 tries.In 2015, many of Leeds best tries came from some brilliant offloads. They still offload the ball as much but they have not been as effective.Leeds skill level seems to be a bit below the superb standard they set last year as theyve made significantly more handling errors in 2016.The opposition also know what is coming, so when Leeds do create that second-phase play, teams are ready for them.Personnel changesPersonnel changes have obviously had an impact, but I dont think you can  blame their dip in form solely on the loss of experienced players. Jamie Peacock had the knack of getting the pass away to create space outwide That said, the absence of Kevin Sinfields goal-kicking may have cost them a victory or two this season.The Rhinos have lost five games in which they have scored the same number of tries as their opponents and their main goal-kicker, Liam Sutcliffe, has been successful in just over 60% of his goals.Zak Hardaker has just four successes from eight attempts and while Jordan Lilley has kicked well, he has spent less time on the field than the other two.Jamie Peacock did make metres for Leeds when he ran the ball, but they have other big forwards who can do that.What JP did better than his replacements was provide an accurate and well-timed pass that helped to create space out wide. Leeds are still waiting to see what Beau Falloon can do at hooker They managed to cover the injury to Paul Aiton at the end of last season, but a good hooker is essential to a good team and Leeds are still waiting to see what Beau Falloon can do. Air Max 97 Pull Tab. Without Tom Briscoe and Ryan Hall, they dont look as scary on kick returns, which are a vital aspect of the game.Hardaker isnt playing at the level that he did 12 months ago and they now look like a team under pressure, rather than a relaxed one. They could even be trying too hard.Training ground impactThe flooding of their training ground in December has probably had a bigger impact than I first imagined as their skill last year came as a result of the time and effort that they put into passing the ball more.Without a regular pitch to practice on theyve wasted time moving from one temporary pitch to another and its shown. In a way, they have an unfair advantage over several other sides who dont have the luxury of the training base that Leeds use.It looks like it will be several weeks before they return but they cannot wait that long until the start picking up the wins. Returning star Robert Lui inspired Salford City Red Devils to a 14-10 win over fading Super League champions Leeds Rhinos. Time is nowThere are many reasons why Leeds find themselves one place off the bottom of the table, but not many games for them to do something about it.By my reckoning, they need to win nine of their next 13 games, which wont be easy as six of the next seven are against teams already in the Top 8. However, as Hull showed when Jamie Shaul scored his try on Good Friday, things can turn around very quickly in sport.If ever there was a game to kick-start 2016, its at home to a Hull side that have won their past five matches on the bounce.Can Leeds get back to winning ways against Hull FC?
