Tubos earn promotion with a 32-24 win over

Yonca Toptan Toptan Alışveriş

Its been quite a run of late for Canadian rugby international Hubert Buydens.Last Friday in New Zealand, the 32-year-old prop from Saskatoon helped the Manawatu Tubos earn promotion with a 32-24 win over Hawkes Bay in the NPC Championship final.On Sunday, Buydens will captain a Canada XV against an RFU Championship XV in Worcester, England.The game against an all-star squad from Englands second-tier league is the first of four for Canada on its November tour of Europe.Canadian coach Kieran Crowleys squad will be reinforced for the remaining games on the tour, which fall within the International Rugby Boards Test window unlike Sundays contest. Canada, ranked 17th in the world, will meet No. 22 Namibia in Colwyn Bay, Wales, on Nov. 7, No. 9 Samoa in Vannes, France, on Nov. 14, and No. 16 Romania in Bucharest on Nov. 22.Samoa, Namibia and Romania will join Canada at next years World Cup, with Canada and Romania both featuring in Pool D, alongside France, Ireland and Italy.Buydens has been named captain for the entire tour. Skipper Tyler Ardron, who plays for the Ospreys in Wales, is recovering from an injury and will be joining the team later in the tour.Buydens also captained Canada in a 52-8 win over Portugal last November.It was a bit of a surprise when they told me I was going to be captaining, he said of this tour. But its always a great honour. Ill try and do my best.The Canada tour has reunited Buydens, a loosehead prop, with Jason Marshall, a 29-year-old tighthead prop from North Vancouver.Amazingly the two Canucks found themselves facing off in the New Zealand final, with Marshall starting for Hawkes Bay.The two props, who both go under the nickname Moose in New Zealand, came to rugby from a football background. Buydens, a former offensive lineman with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, had a tryout with the B.C. Lions while Marshall played quarterback for Simon Fraser and tried out for the Edmonton Eskimos.Buydens had the last laugh in last weeks New Zealand final. Not only did his team win, but he and the Manawatu pack earned a memorable penalty on one scrum that saw Marshall propelled upwards like a rocket.That one definitely felt pretty good, Buydens said with a chuckle. Hes taking a bit of guff from the boys that he was on the losing end of that one.Despite a gruelling campaign in New Zealand, Buydens says his body is feeling good.My body came through A-OK, he said. Everything that should hurt or normally does hurt does hurt and everything that shouldnt doesnt, so its all good that way.Buydens says he will have to miss out on Manawatu next year given preparations for the World Cup, which runs Sept. 18 to Oct. 31 in England and Wales.It is a little disappointing that way but definitely playing for Canada is the priority, he said.Buydens expects to return to Saskatoon after the tour and spend Christmas at home. He will then look to play overseas or, barring that, settle in Victoria.Buydens enjoyed his second season in New Zealand, living in Palmerston North where rugby players do not go unnoticed.Its a beautiful place, he said. Everyone knows who you are ... people stop you in the street, talk to you about rugby , how youre doing and how the teams doing.At six foot three and 275 pounds with a healthy beard — he was one of Canadas famed beardos at the last World Cup — Buydens is hard to miss.I stick out a little bit, yeah, he said.Canada is looking to step it up on tour after going 0-3 in June against Japan, Scotland and the U.S. A domestic Canada A side also disappointed in finishing third at the Americas Rugby Championship earlier this month.Worcester Warriors lock James Percival will captain the RFU Championship side.A lot of the Canadian boys play in that league so it will be good to measure ourselves against them and hopefully get one up on them, Buydens said.———Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter.

The Jets gained only two of a possible eight points on a recent four-game homestand. Winnipeg went 1-3-0 on the stay at MTS Centre and lost Mondays finale against San Jose in heartbreaking fashion. Winnipeg tied the Sharks at 2-2 with Jay Harrisons power-play goal early in the third period and appeared headed for at least a point until Marc-Edouard Vlasic shocked the hosts by scoring with just 4.5 seconds to play in regulation. With the contests seconds away from heading to overtime, San Jose center Joe Pavelski won a faceoff in the Winnipeg zone. Logan Couture dug out the loose puck and passed it over to the left circle where Vlasic wristed it high for the winner. Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, while Michael Hutchinson allowed three goals on 37 shots in the loss. Its going to sting tonight, but we dont have time to sit here and sulk, said Ladd. Well chalk it up to a learning experience and make sure it doesnt happen again. The Jets hope to put the tough loss behind them tonight by continuing their recent dominance of the Coyotes, who have lost five straight in this series since a home win on Oct. 15, 2011. Winnipeg, which is 13 points ahead of Arizona for the final wild card spot in the West, has won its last two tilts in Glendale. The clubs met once earlier this season when Winnipeg recorded a 6-2 win in the desert behind two-goal performances from Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler. Ondrej Pavelec has been a big part of Winnipegs recent success against the Coyotes, and he owns a 5-1-1 mark with a 1.66 goals againstt average in this series.dddddddddddd Pavelec will get the start tonight. The Jets are expecting to get defenseman Zach Bogosian back on the ice tonight after he missed the last 14 games with a lower-body injury. That should help a decimated Winnipeg blue line that is playing without defensemen Grant Clitsome, Toby Enstrom, Mark Stuart and Jacob Trouba. In addition to being the first tilt of a three-game swing, tonights test also marks the beginning of a road-heavy stretch for the Jets, who will play five of six and seven of their next 10 away from Winnipeg. Thats not necessarily a bad thing for a club which is 11-4-4 on the road this season compared to a 9-9-3 mark at MTS. The Coyotes are hoping to rebound from their second 6-0 loss in a week when they take the ice tonight. Arizona was slammed New Years Eve in Dallas by a 6-0 score before beginning a six-game homestand with Saturdays 6-3 win over Columbus. However, the Coyotes were unable to build off the win over the Blue Jackets and instead fell 6-0 to St. Louis on Tuesday. David Backes had four goals to lead Tuesdays rout, which saw Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith allow all six goals on 39 shots. The shots were 32-14 (at one point). Thats not a goaltender problem; thats a people-in-front-of-them problem, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. The loss dropped the Coyotes to 8-9-3 as the host this season. Arizona forward Martin Hanzal is questionable for tonight after missing Tuesdays test with an upper-body injury suffered Saturday against Columbus. Smith could get the start in net again tonight for Arizona. He is 7-7-1 with a 2.71 GAA in his career against Winnipeg, while Devan Dubnyk is 0-7-0 lifetime with a 4.72 GAA in this matchup. ' ' '
