Sky Sports Rugby pundit and England World Cup winner Will Greenwood has been appointed as Barbarians coach to assist Robbie Deans against South Africa at Wembley on November 5. LeBron James Team USA Jersey . Greenwood was part of Sir Clive Woodwards World Cup winning side in 2003, when Jonny Wilkinsons dramatic drop-goal in extra time sealed a 20-17 victory over Australia.And the 43-year-old former Leicester and Harlequins centre admitted he was relishing the opportunity to coach one of the most famous teams in international rugby. My parents are teachers and my fathers a coach so Ive sort of grown up in the coaching, teaching environment, Greenwood told Sky Sports News HQ.I love the positive side to it. I love the mental side. [Wembley] is a 90,000-seater stadium, Im hoping its going to be full. The Barbarians play South Africa a week before South Africa take on Eddie Jones England at Twickenham.So its the first chance to see a new-look South Africa team. Theyll have a new coach. Theyve got wonderful talent, if you think of Jessie Kriel and [Handre] Pollard, so its a tremendously exciting opportunity for me. The Barbarians have the elite of world rugby talent to choose from Greenwood also hinted that a future coaching position could be of interest to him.One that I jumped at and grabbed immediately with both hands when the opportunity came, he said of the offer to team up with former Australia boss Deans.I love coaching down at Maidenhead - with a good couple of wins in the last two weeks - at home to Towcester [and] at home to Windsor, the Englishman said.I was [recently] on the touchline watching my son play in a Sevens competition. They lost in the final to the mighty Beacons school so my heart rate fluctuates more than you might see with Eddie Jones. Hes so calm when hes up in the coaching box. I tend to be more of a Stuart Pearce, jump up and down, nut every ball, kick every ball, make every tackle. Ill try and retain my composure and, in the week leading up to it, hopefully well be able to put in some structures.Were going to be able to coach some unbelievably talented players, who know the ins and outs of modern rugby. For myself and Robbie Deans its about giving them some structure, giving them some organisation.[We want players] representing the Barbarians, one of the finest teams there is, [who will] hopefully do the shirt justice. Heyneke steps down South Africa coach quits Kiwi Deans is the most successful coach in Super Rugby history after winning five titles with the Crusaders between 2000 and 2008. He returns to the Barbarians helm after coaching them to a win over Ireland and a defeat against England in May 2014.South Africa are due to name their new head coach to succeed Heyneke Meyer next month.

LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.us/Olympics-Kobe-Bryant-Usa-Jersey/ .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Sue Bird and the U.S. womens basketball team received some good news Wednesday when an MRI revealed that the team captain and point guard just had a knee capsule sprain.Bird had initially feared the injury would be much worse.Obviously I felt a huge relief. Bird said in a statement provided by USA Basketball. The hardest part is waiting and not knowing. So, to finally get the thumbs-up from the doc that everything was okay was incredibly relieving and exciting, and obviously Im very happy.Bird wasnt at practice on Wednesday and is listed as day-to-day. She has little time to recover before the U.S. faces France in the womens basketball semifinals on Thursday night. A win and the U.S. would play in the gold medal game on Saturday.Bird has started every game for the U.S. in the past three Olympics and has 30 assists and just three turnovers in Rio. The Americans were preparing at practice as if she couldnt go against France.You dont replace Sue. We all know that, guard Diana Taurasi said . Been on too many teams with her and I know how valuable she is to a team. Our success is because shes been the quarterback. Shes the director of it all. To say were not going to miss her ... would be silly.Its going to take a little bit of everyone to fill her shoes. Ill probably slide to the one a little bit more. Lindsay (Whalen) will play a little bit more. We have confidence in everyone on this team.The 35-year-old Bird was hurt wwith 6:33 left in the second quarter of Tuesday nights 110-64 win over Japan in the quarterfinals. DeAndre Jordan Team USA Jersey. She sat out the second half of the game.The four-time Olympian told The Associated Press in a postgame interview that she heard a pop in the knee. She has had issues with her left knee, but this is the first injury to her right knee.We have depth at certain positions, thats probably not one of them, U.S. coach Geno Auriemma said. Were there with Lindsay and Dee. Its more than enough. But now we have to do a great job managing that and making sure, they have to be really smart.With Bird on the bench, the U.S. started Seimone Augustus in the third quarter against Japan on Tuesday night. The Americans outscored Japan 54-18 in the second half without Bird.France has also has had to deal point guard problems. Celine Dumerc, who guided France to the silver medal in the 2012 Olympics, injured her ankle right before the Rio Games.Theyve got their own issues at point guard spot with Celine being out, but managed pretty well, Auriemma said. They run their stuff as well as anyone here.
