Veteran North Melbourne forward Drew Petrie continues to enjoy the strong backing of coach Brad Scott despite his run of indifferent form. Jaguars Jerseys Outlet .By his own admission, the 33-year-olds return of 19 goals from 15 games this season has been below expectations.But Scott left little doubt where he stands on Petries place in the AFL side when asked if he had considered dropping him.Not for one second, Scott replied.But (our forward) unit hasnt been working to the level that we would expect (of late) ... Drews only a part of that. Hes a significant part but hes only a part nonetheless.So were looking at all of our forward line players to improve and to work a bit better together but the baseline of Drews game is the way he defends and that is just incredibly underrated outside our football club. But its incredibly highly rated inside it.Any external comments about Drew are irrelevant to us.North have been in free fall recently, losing five of six games to go from top of the ladder after 12 rounds to eighth heading into round 17.The Roos face an improving Port Adelaide at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, with the Power their nearest challenger three games behind in ninth.Key trio Daniel Wells, Jarrad Waite and Nick Dal Santo return from injury and illness in a significant boost to the side.But Scott confirmed emerging forward Mason Wood will miss up to two months of football after undergoing knee surgery. Jaguars Jerseys From China . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. Wholesale Jaguars Jerseys . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. Michael Cheika insists he doesnt feel his jobs under pressure as the Wallabies begin picking up the pieces from a disastrous Bledisloe Cup campaign.Taking stock after losing 29-9 to the All Blacks in Saturdays second Test in Wellington - and having conceded 10 tries while scoring just one in back-to-back clashes with the world champions - Cheikas team badly need to show progress in the rest of the Rugby Championship campaign.Theyll regroup after a week off before tackling South Africa in Brisbane on Saturday week.Another defeat would bring Australias losing streak to seven Tests - the same number that led to the sacking of Eddie Jones in 2005, the teams most unsuccessful run in the professional era.Three of those losses were to New Zealand and three to England, widely rated the best two teams in world rugby.But another bad loss at home against a mediocre Springboks team, who have split their first two Tests with Argentina, would crank up pressure on them.Cheika appears to be feeling the heat, if his post-match spray at referee Romain Poite - who he alleged ignored captain Stephen Moore and also had a secret meeting with the All Blacks, which counterpart Steve Hansen subsequently refuted - is anything to go by.But he doesnt feel his position is in any jeopardy.I dont think I am [under pressure], Cheika told reporters in Sydney.The only person who puts pressure on me is myself.Im not worried about that stuff.The Springboks were disappointing in a 26-24 defeat by the Pumas in Argentina on Saturday night andd may present the Wallabies with an opportunity to play themselves back into form. Cheap Jaguars Jerseys. However, there is plenty of work to do.Australia barely had a chance in attack in Wellington, running the ball 187m to New Zealands 411m, and were held tryless as the rampant hosts crossed the white line four times en route to clinching the Bledisloe Cup for a 14th straight year.With no injured players expected back for Brisbane, Cheika has already declared his intention to stick with Quade Cooper and Bernard Foley as the teams twin playmakers, while lock Adam Coleman brought some promising vigour in just his second Test appearance - if overdone at times.Young backline utility Reece Hodge showed some signs in his debut off the bench, including kicking a monster 52m penalty, that suggest he could become a regular for years to come.But apparent glaring problems remain, including lineout woes and a lack of ball-running forwards, especially a power No.8, to provide much-needed go-forward.Vice-captain Michael Hooper believes, despite their two Bledisloe beltings, a win isnt too far away.We made huge improvements during the week, he said.Still the scoreboard didnt paint a great picture but as far as intent of the guys at training and in the game, you cant build that sort of stuff and not get results in the back end of the year.(Im not) hoping, Im knowing theres some good to come from this. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
