The Queensland Reds have announced former Wallabies prop Nick Stiles as their head coach for the next two Super Rugby seasons.Stiles received the nod ahead of fellow interim co-coach Matt OConnor, who has been released to pursue other head coaching opportunities, and outgoing Crusaders boss Todd Blackadder.Stiles and OConnor had shared the coaching role since the sacking of Richard Graham two rounds into the 2016 Super Rugby season.Im incredibly proud and honoured to get the opportunity to lead the Reds into the future, said Stiles, a 12-cap Wallaby who played his entire career in Queensland.Ballymore is like a second home to me.Weve got an exciting group of players with a lot of potential and some great staff and we are all highly motivated to return the Reds to success.Stiles has never been a head coach at the top level before, but he does have 11 years of coaching experience, including six seasons as a Super Rugby assistant and two at the helm of Brisbane City, guiding them to back-to-back National Rugby Championships.He also has the backing of the Reds playing group, having been endorsed for the job by departing veteran Greg Holmes, captain James Slipper and returning Wallabies five-eighth Quade Cooper, who is expected to pledge his future to the franchise following Stiles appointment.Nick is a great coach and has a good rapport with the playing group. Ive seen first-hand how he can get the best out of players and I know how much this teams success means to him. The players are ready to get behind Nick and we look forward to 2017, Slipper said.Queensland Rugby Unions executive general manager, Daniel Herbert was pleased with Stiless work on the Reds set piece throughout the season.Nick is a good leader, who has turned the Reds set pieces into one of the more statistically dominant in Super Rugby, Herbert said.He has the backing of the Queensland Rugby Union and the Australian Rugby Union, including Wallabies coach Michael Cheika, who has committed to working closely with Nick to ensure his ongoing development and success as a head coach.The Reds finished the season in 15th place on the Super Rugby ladder with a poor 3-17 record, and will look to Stiles to guide them to their first finals campaign since 2013.One of his first jobs will be finding a new attack coach, with OConnor a contender to assume the vacant coaching role at the Western Force. Barry Larkin Jersey . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital. Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three points behind its title rivals. Jose Peraza Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. http://www.redsgearshop.com/Reds-Dave-Concepcion-Kids-Jersey/ . The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. Joey Votto Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Chris Sabo Jersey . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. UTICA, N.Y. -- In a story July 29 about a ruling in a lawsuit against NASCAR driver Tony Stewart in the death of a fellow driver, The Associated Press failed to note the decision was first reported by the Watertown Daily Times and improperly used the content and wording of the newspaper story without additional reporting. A corrected version of the story is below:NY judge: Tony Stewarts insurer off the hook in Ward suitNASCAR driver Tony Stewart will have to foot the bill for his own defense against a lawsuit brought by the family of a driver who died after being struck by Stewarts car, after a federal judge ruled Stewarts insurance carrier is not responsible to defend him.UTICA, N.Y. -- NASCAR driver Tony Stewart will have to foot the bill for his own defense in a lawsuit brought by the family of a driver who died after being struck by Stewarts car during a race, after a federal judge ruled his insurance company does not have to defend or indemnify him.U.S. District Court Judge David Hurd ruled Friday that Axis Insurance Co.s policy with Stewart limited the insurers liability to 105 specific raaces, and the sprint car event in which Kevin Ward Jr.dddddddddddd was killed was not one of them. The judges ruling was first reported by the Watertown Daily Times.Wards family is suing Stewart, claiming he acted recklessly when he struck and killed the young driver in an open-wheel race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in August 2014.Ward had exited his vehicle after a car-on-car bump with Stewart had sent Ward spinning into the wall lining the dirt track in upstate New York. Ward appeared to be yelling in the direction of Stewarts car when he was struck and killed.A grand jury decided not to indict Stewart on criminal charges.In his decision, the judge wrote it is undisputed the sprint car event in which Ward was killed was not one of those specified events covered by the policy. Attorneys for Stewart had countered that certain language in the policy provided that coverage was warranted.Stewarts attorney did not return a call seeking comment from The Associated Press. ' ' '
