New Zealand captain Jesse Bromwich says his team will be aiming to win the Four Nations for sidelined team-mate Thomas Leuluai. The unlucky Leuluai, who is returning to Wigan next season, will be watching Sundays final against Australia at Anfield from the stands after suffering a double fracture of his jaw in the Kiwis 18-18 draw with Scotland in Workington last Friday.Leuluai, 31, who won his 37th cap against the Bravehearts, has been dogged by injury over the last two years. He was forced to miss New Zealands 2015 Test series against England with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and was taken off 30 minutes from the end of their opening Four Nations clash with England for a concussion assessment.

Hes someone that we all look up to.Hes been around for years but hes a solid defender, hes very loud out on the park and hes going to be sorely missed.That should give us more motivation, playing for Tommy who wont be able to be there.Hes still with the squad but hes eating out of a straw at the moment, which is unfortunate. But hes in good spirits and hes still happy to be around the camp. Australia captain Cameron Smith and New Zealand skipper Jesse Bromwich with the Four Nations trophy Leuluai, who cut short his second stint with New Zealand Warriors to return to England for family reasons, has been given a 10-week recovery period by Wigan so should be fit for the start of the new Super League season in February.In the meantime, New Zealand coach David Kidwell is expected to switch second rower Tohu Harris to partner Shaun Johnson in the halves against the Kangaroos rather than bring in rookie stand-off Te Maire Martin for his first full cap.Weve a couple of options there, Bromwich said. He hasnt told us what hes going to do yet but all the young boys have been training really well so everyones put their hand up for the team this week.Forwards Jason Taumalolo and Kevin Proctor are sure to return after being rested against the Bravehearts and Bromwich is particularly looking forward to the former making an impact after his outstanding year for the Cowboys in the NRL.He makes a big difference with our attack, Bromwich said. Hes a very dangerous carrier of the ball and weve got Kevin Proctor whos a great defender for our team and does a great job.With respect to the boys who played last week and did a great job, Im looking forward to having all the boys back.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

Elgin Baylor Jersey.Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. SYDNEY -- College football fever landed here on Saturday.Australian fans saw a high-flying affair with plenty of points scored between Cal and Hawaii (the Bears won 51-31). But like so many college football game days, the sights and sounds around the contest were just as memorable as what the two teams provided on the field.Here are The Woot and Wye Shows favorite things about the Sydney Cup:1. The Aussie spin on the college football tailgateLicensing laws in Sydney limit a true authentic tailgate experience in the ANZ Stadium complex, however the promoters of the event made up for it with a free tailgate party at a nearby venue called The Brewery. Inside the complex was live music, beer, food trucks, cornhole and more. The atmosphere didnt match that of traditional tailgate, but it was among the best we have experienced in Australia with lots of energy and laughter.2. The obscure fan jerseys Understandably the crowd was not filled with a huge amount of Cal Bears and Hawaii Rainbow Warriors fans, although some diehards did make the trip.The Australian spectators dusted off and pulled out their favorite football jerseys. The most popular being a 49ers Jarryd Hayne jersey, which was easily being worn by over a thousand spectators. Some of our personal favorites included a Jaguars Eugene Monroe jersey, a Joshua Cribbs jersey and these Tim Tebow Florida jerseys.Nothing beats this wife and daughter combo.?3. James Jones-ingThere were way too many people doing this. This is an ugly trend that needs to be stopped. It was 68 degrees Fahrenheit.4. The Cal cannonWe spoke with the cannon operators pregame and the cannon was brought in from a country town five hours from Sydney called Wagga Wagga. The two tests oof the cannon pregame were so loud that it actually broke two microphones.dddddddddddd The Sydney crowd absolutely loved the cannon, which was fired after every Cal touchdown.5. Food and drinkThe most popular thing during the game was these two-foot long hot dogs. The abnormally large hot dog was in such high demand people queued close to an hour to get their hands on one. Aussies love their food.6. This guyThe Puppeter. No explanation needed.?7. Aisea Tongilavas supportTongilava, a sophomore linebacker for the Cal Bears, had a huge supporter group make the long journey down under. Tongilavas family were the first people we met this morning on the train ride to the stadium and are extremely passionate about football. They were seen throughout the game holding a giant banner in support of Aisea.8. The stadium ran out of beerJust after halftime we started receiving a plethora of tweets from fans who claimed ANZ Stadium had run out of beer. A Defcon 1 scenario for ANZ Stadium.And one more thingIt had everything ... even a marriage proposal.Two Hawaii fans from Adelaide, Australia ,were participating in some halftime entertainment when one of them decided to shake it up a little. PG got down on one knee and asked Emma to marry him. She said yes and the crowd went wild. A moment of love and joy among the beautiful chaos of college football in Sydney.All in all it was a fantastic experience for the people of Australia with many fans leaving the stadium with smiles on their faces and praying to the football gods that football will be back on their shores, sooner rather than later.
