    He may have waltzed into the NFL with barely any experience, but even Jarryd Hayne is shocked with how well hes returned to the NRL.In just his fourth game since his dramatic comeback to rugby league, Hayne will revert back to fullback for the first time when Gold Coast host Penrith on Saturday.A win will clinch a finals spot and break a six-year drought from September action.And if they get there, theyll do so on the back of a rejuvenated Hayne, who admitted being bowled over by the his successful adjustment back to the game.I guess I am pretty surprised about playing them long minutes, he said.And for me to come back and just chime in, its been the biggest thing for me to be out there and just to try and help the team as much as I can.In his three games so far for the Titans, Hayne has played 53 minutes against the Warriors, 80 minutes against the Wests Tigers and 64 minutes against Newcastle.Most of his time has been spent at five-eighth.This week however, the former Parramatta star will once again don the No.1, the number that led to him winning the Dally M medal with Johnathan Thurston in his final season in 2014 before departing for the NFL.My fitness has definitely improved a lot, he said.Playing at fullback, its a different kind of fitness as well. A bit more speed involved, but then theres not as much consistent running as at five-eighth.Its a challenge in itself and something Im looking forward to.Hayne said he would also lean on all his experience against a Penrith side, led by hotshot rookie Nathan Cleary, that he knows will test him early and often under the high ball.Just watching them play, they do put a lot of pressure on the fullback in general, he said.(Cleary has) got a really good kicking game. The biggest thing from a fullbacks perspective is they like going high inside the 50. Theyre a great team. Wholesale Air Max UK Free Shipping.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Jim McElwain shook his head, let out a gasp and then reeled off some key numbers as he expressed disbelief that anyone would think the Gators tried to dodge playing LSU last weekend because of Hurricane Matthew.Nineteen deaths, 2.5 million people without power, families in dire needs, McElwain said Monday. Obviously, they dont know me, they dont know the Florida Gators, they dont know our players. Dodging the game? Wow. ... How anybody could even think that way is beyond me.The 18th-ranked Gators had been scheduled to host the Tigers on Saturday, but the Southeastern Conference postponed the game indefinitely Thursday. No makeup date has been announced.The way it played out caused angst at both schools.Florida created a stir by taking the lead Wednesday and saying the game would be played in Gainesville regardless. LSU responded by making it clear it did everything possible to play the game, offering to play in Baton Rouge or fly in and out of Gainesville on Sunday.The Gators declined both offers, saying it was too difficult to plan a road trip on short notice and there was too much uncertainty about playing in Gainesville after the hurricane wreaked havoc on the states coastline.Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley got the brunt of the criticism, with some saying he slow-played SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey so the banged-up Gators could get extra time to heal.It just shocks me that someone could actually think that way, McElwain said. There isnt much thought that goes behind it to me that somebody would actually think that. And knowing us, thats pretty crazy to me.Florida (4-1, 2-1 SEC) has made it clear that it wants to keep playing the annual series with LSU (3-2, 2-1). The Tigers, meanwhile, have talked repeatedly in recent years about eliminating the Gators as their annual SEC East opponent.The teams have played every year since 1971. Its unclear whether the streak will continue in 2016.Sankey said Saturday that the schools need to find a way to come together to play a football gamme and find the best way to do that.ddddddddddddNov. 19 works best for Florida.The Tigers and Gators each play nonconference games at home that Saturday and would need to buy out those opponents, South Alabama for LSU and Presbyterian for Florida. The Tigers would be on the hook for $1.5 million to South Alabama, and the Gators would have to pay $500,000 to Presbyterian of the Football Championship Subdivision.Doing that would mean the Tigers would lose a home game (and the $3 million it generates) and end the regular season with three consecutive road games in a 13-day span -- against Arkansas (Nov. 12), Florida (Nov. 19) and Texas A&M (Nov. 24). LSU athletic director Joe Alleva was adamant Monday that wont happen.One thing were going to hold very firm on is we have a home game on Nov. 19 and were going to have a home game on Nov. 19, Alleva said. Were not going to change that situation.Alleva said he spoke with Sankey over the weekend regarding rescheduling options. Alleva suggested Oct. 29 and Dec. 3, but those dates would require moving the Florida-Georgia game in Jacksonville or moving the SEC title game in Atlanta. Making either of those changes would be difficult, if not impossible because of existing contracts.McElwain deferred questions about rescheduling the game to the SEC, which will make the final call.In the meantime, the Gators are trying to stay focused on playing Missouri (2-3, 0-2) on Saturday after an unwanted bye week.We were prepared to play, but you know lives are more important than this game, Florida center Cam Dillard said. Its a game, and you got to think about those lives. You got to think about how many players on our team were affected. You got to think about how many of their family members were in harms way and, you know, I feel like thats what the SEC folks saw and thats what they took into consideration.---AP college football website: Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
