Blog Entry: Australia have faltered in game two of the Constellation Cup netball series, falling in a thriller 53-51 to New Zealand in their Test in Launceston. Nike Air Max Womens White and Black .After a crushing 68-56 victory in the first Test in Sydney, the Diamonds couldnt handle a lift in defensive pressure by the Kiwis.With the remaining two matches in New Zealand, starting with Auckland on Sunday, the loss is a big blow for the world champion Australians.Silver Ferns veteran Laura Langman was one of the stars of her side, getting the better of her wing attack opponent Madi Robinson.Langman said her team was bitterly disappointed with their opening Test loss.Tonight I think it showed the character that the side has, Langman said.Winning away from home is massive but whats really important now is to back it up.Weve been renowned for beating Australia as a one-off and we want to start making it more consistent.The Diamonds started brightly, running away to a 6-1 lead, but their arch rivals turned up the heat in the second quarter.Veteran Anna Harrison started at goal-keeper and the move proved a defensive masterstroke.Harrison, playing in her second Test since a two year absence on family leave and battling injury, helped shut down the supply to the Diamonds main shooting weapon Cailtin Bassett.The teams went to the halftime break at 29-29 with the Australians looking rattled.The Silver Ferns, led by rookie shooter Te Paea Selby-Rickit in her sixth Test, got out to a five goal lead before Australia closed the margin to 40-42 at the final break.The Diamonds hit the front in the last quarter but the desperate New Zealanders wouldnt be denied to give new coach Janine Southby her first win over Australia. Nike Air Max Womens White Discount . Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. Nike Air Max Womens White Pink . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. Jacquizz Rodgers continued to dominate in Doug Martins absence, Matt Forte proved his doubters wrong, and Jay Ajayi ran his way into the NFL record books. Fantasy owners have some new names (Russell Shepard) to learn, as well as some old names (Cordarrelle Patterson) to ponder.And, naturally, some poor performances (DeVante Parker, Blake Bortles) that may have droppable consequences.But three injuries to running backs may have the biggest impact going forward.---THE INJURY REPORTThe most significant injury in Week 7 was LeSean McCoys aggravation of his balky hamstring. There was plenty of talk last week about not playing McCoy and letting the injury heal, but he started after some favorable pregame warmups ... and promptly got hurt again. McCoys situation should become clearer as the week goes by, but it wouldnt be surprising if the Bills sit him out for multiple weeks until hes fully healed.Tevin Coleman left the game Sunday against the Chargers with a hamstring injury and didnt return. And Jeremy Hill had a chest injury (which popped up a couple weeks ago) that could turn out to be more serious than initially thought as the week goes by. Devonta Freeman and Gio Bernard owners should keep close eyes on their timeshare counterparts.---AJAYI DAZZLES AGAINWhat Ajayi has done in the last two weeks -- 207 total yards in Week 6 and 216 total yards in Week 7 -- hasnt just been amazing, but also wholly unexpected. The Steelers and Bills run defenses arent bad, so Ajayi wouldnt have been singled out for great games; in fact, the Bills had only allowed one 100-yard rusher (Matt Forte in Week 2) in the first six weeks.Much of Ajayis success can be traced to his offensive line finally reaching full health and strength last week, which has stemmed Ryan Tannehill sack issues (hes been sacked once in the last two games) and allowed Ajayi to find holes and break free. Naturally, a momentum-killing bye is on tap for Week 8, and Ajayi then comes back to games against the Jets and Chargers, who have been fairly effective at stopping the run this season. But does that matter at this point?---MARQISE LEE IS NOW FANTASY RELEVANTJacksonville wideout Marqise Lee caught seven of eight targets for a career-high 107 yards on Sunday, improving upon his six-reception, 61-yard game in Week 7. Lee is averaging 6.8 targgets over his last five games and is one of the few bright spots on a Jaguars team in fantasy disarray. Nike Air Max Womens White Sale . he 2012 Biletnikoff award winner, Lee was a 2014 second-round pick of the Jaguars, but has battled injuries for most of his NFL career. His recent performance, though, suggests he has solid rapport with Blake Bortles and is capable of making big plays when healthy. Owned in just two percent of leagues, Lee should be one of the most-added players in fantasy heading into Week 8.---MISCELLANEOUS- Cordarrelle Pattersons stock is rising. On Sunday, he caught all seven of his targets for 67 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles -- his second straight week with a touchdown. Non-believers will say the score came in garbage time, but Patterson now has six or more targets in three straight games and gets a Week 8 date with the Bears, who have given up 235 or more yards to the oppositions wide receivers in their last three games. With six teams on bye next week, Patterson should warrant flex consideration in deeper point-per-reception formats.- Allen Robinson caught just two passes for nine yards -- off eight targets -- in Sundays loss to the Raiders. Robinson hasnt gone over 72 receiving yards in any game this season and has seen a decrease in receiving yards in each of the last four weeks. Hes in a no mans land of value -- Robinsons owners would be selling him too low, and his buyers would be inheriting serious risk. A buy-low trade offer would be worth exploring for an owner sitting at 4-3 or lower.- Latavius Murray returned from missing two weeks with turf toe to run 18 times for 59 yards and two touchdowns (while catching two passes for four yards). The DeAndre Washington/Jalen Richard rotation seems to be over now, and it looks like Murray may have re-claimed his role as the lead back for the 5-2 Raiders.- The Ravens, Rams, Dolphins, Giants, Steelers, and 49ers are on bye this week. And theres another game in London, meaning a 9:30 a.m. Eastern start on Sunday.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, story has been corrected to show that the Raiders are 5-2 on the season.
