Murray cool ahead of Italy clash

first_img The 25-year-old said he is equally happy partnering Leinster’s Ian Madigan or club-mate Ian Keatley, the two fly-halves vying to start in Rome while Sexton completes his 12-week concussion lay-off. “There’s no more pressure than usual,” said Murray of conducting Ireland’s tempo in Sexton’s absence. “Other people might say there is but I don’t see that. “It’s come up with Munster before that there might be a bit more pressure on me but I just try and play my own game, try and play well and if I play well hopefully all that stuff, that pressure and responsibility, looks after itself. “The two lads, the two Ians who are going for the 10 spot this weekend, have been in and out of the team in training. “They have been getting their reps in and doing real well and I have no issue with whoever gets picked. ” Forwards coach Simon Easterby confirmed fit-again flanker Sean O’Brien is “in the mix” for selection following his strong showing for Ireland Wolfhounds on Friday night. The abrasive Leinster back-rower has endured two reconstructions on the same shoulder in 14 months, but is now primed for his first Test action since November 2013. The British and Irish Lions scrum-half is “through that first contact fear” after a month out with neck trouble, and should start against the Azzurri in Rome. The sharp tactician shoulders the brunt of the playmaking duties in a French-style half-back set-up at Munster, but does not expect a repeat at Test level this weekend. “Sean was good on Friday night, in his own assessment he blew up a little bit and you would do,” said Easterby. “He’s a long time out of the game but we all saw what he can be, the competitiveness of the man. “Certainly having him in the mix for selection is a real positive, especially after losing Chris Henry and Rhys Ruddock after the autumn. “Obviously Rhys broke his arm and Chris has had his illness, so we’ve had a few players step through, but having Sean come back to full fitness and back into the squad and in the mix is great to have him as a selection option.” Jamie Heaslip remained a fitness doubt on Tuesday with shoulder trouble, but Easterby said the Leinster number eight still has time to prove his fitness. “Players might not train until a Tuesday, that’s not unusual,” said Easterby. “You have to adapt and give players opportunity, without it affecting preparation.” Boss Joe Schmidt will be relieved to have frontline nine Murray fit to start in Rome, with the increasingly-poised half-back crucial to Ireland’s tactical nous. Murray’s ability to run a game in the manner of a fly-half from the nine berth could prove priceless at the Stadio Olimpico, especially in the absence of Racing Metro 10 Sexton. Murray said he has eased comfortably back into confrontational training, claiming there is “no hassle” now over the disc problem that has blighted his last month. “I just over-extended my neck against Zebre about a month ago,” said Murray. “I maybe could have got back for the two European games, but the specialists and doctors advised against it. “I’m feeling good and fit to play now. “It was a disc problem in my neck. It’s gone now. There is no hassle over it. “I just ran into a player’s chest and squashed myself. It wasn’t the smartest idea – I won’t be doing that again! “I have done all my contact. I have done bag work, tackled a few of the lads and feel good. I’ve gotten through that first contact fear if you want to call it that.” Press Association Conor Murray insists Johnny Sexton’s absence will not heap extra pressure on him to spearhead Ireland’s attack in Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations opener in Italy.last_img read more

Men’s tennis battles through rebuilding year

first_imgAlthough the youthful Wisconsin squad struggled throughout the season, Greg Van Emburgh looks forward to the team’s future.[/media-credit]Coming off of a record-setting season, the 2010-11 Wisconsin men’s tennis team had big shoes to fill. In 2010, the University of Wisconsin was selected to enter the NCAA tournament for the fourth straight season, a school-record, and managed to make it to its first-ever sweet 16 appearance.When the 2011 season started, head coach Greg Van Emburgh knew it was going to be a rebuilding year for his young team. The Badgers went from three seniors and three freshmen on their 2009-10 roster to a 2010-11 season where the team was predominantly freshmen.The lack of experience seemed to be the Badger’s achilles’ heel.In January, the Badgers began their season with two wins and three losses before losing their first conference match against Minnesota, the team that would end their season months later in the Big Ten Tournament.After its first conference match, Wisconsin seemed to hit a high note with two wins against Marquette and UIC, 6-1 and 7-0, respectively. However, the happiness was short lived, as the Badgers struggled to continue their winning ways.Throughout the season, consistency seemed to be a major problem for the Badgers as a whole. They would win a game, and then lose two. Lose a game, and then win two. Not once in the season did they win more than two consecutive games.When March rolled around, Wisconsin ended up claiming the No. 6 seed for the Big Ten Tournament. With a win against No. 11 seed Penn State, Wisconsin was able to continue tournament play against No. 3 seed Minnesota. But their tournament play was short-lived, as Wisconsin fell early to its conference rivals.Although they struggled as a team, Marek Michalicka, Billy Bertha, Rodney Carey and Fredrik Ask proved that individually it was a different story.The seven freshmen that played as Badgers this season gained valuable experience that is needed for the success of their future seasons. Two of the freshman, the doubles duo of Carey and Ask, worked their way into the UW system perfectly and ended their season by working their way to the No. 2 doubles slot.Bertha, a sophomore, is known for his passionate, fiery play and will lead next year’s team. Bertha and Michalicka played the entire season at the No. 1 doubles spot and together they gained the lone win of the day in the Big Ten Tournament against Minnesota, ending their season with an 18-5 doubles record together.Whether in doubles play with Bertha or singles play, Michalicka led his team by example with his experience. Optimistic and focused, Michalicka was spoken very highly of during his time at Wisconsin and ended up earning Big Ten honors for his play. His team-high record of 17-6 in the No. 1 singles slot and his 8-2 record in Big Ten play earned him a spot on the first team All-Big Ten team as well as the recognition of being a Badgers’ Big Ten sportsmanship honoree.While his time at the UW is coming to a close, Michalicka’s tennis career is still booming. On Tuesday, the NCAA selection show aired and Michalicka looked to get his third-straight NCAA singles berth. Ranked No. 57 in the nation, UW’s senior captain got what he wanted and was selected as one of 64 singles players to compete in the 2011 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Tennis Championships.Although the season has come to a close, with such a young team, you haven’t seen the last of many of these Badgers. Van Emburgh is proud of his team and how far it has come and looks forward to his growing future with such a young team.last_img read more
