Fatigue wont be a factor for North Queensland, according to rugby league great Petero Civoniceva. Giovani dos Santos Mexico Jersey .But former Maroons teammate Justin Hodges believes a tough NRL finals campaign will finally catch up with Johnathan Thurstons Cowboys in Friday nights preliminary final against Cronulla.Long-serving Test prop Civoniceva brushed aside fears North Queensland would wilt against the Sharks at Allianz Stadium.The Cowboys are coming off a 90 minute extra-time semi-final win over Brisbane at tropical Townsville.And they line up against a Cronulla side fresh from a week off and not affected by travel.It will be a huge challenge no doubt how they recover, Civoniceva told AAP.But their coaching staff would have been on top of it as soon as those boys came off the field.And they are used to the heat, they are used to the conditions.It was an epic game. It would have taken up a fair amount of juice in the tank but I dont think it will take its toll.But Hodges was blunt when asked to assess North Queenslands fitness.I think they are going to struggle, he told Fox Sports TV.They had a tough first up game in Melbourne, flew all the way back for a massive game against the Broncos, and we all know how hot it was.Now they come against a side that has the week off, nice and fresh and ready to go.Time and again Thurston has stepped up to lift the Cowboys but Hodges believed the North Queensland playmaker may finally run out of gas against the Sharks.Thurston lost 5kg battling a stomach bug and needed a halftime injection to get through the semi-final.We all know what he can do, you can never write him off, Hodges said.But I do think this task might be too great for him because of their tough run.However, Civoniceva said the chance to go back to back for the first time since Brisbane (1992-93) would spur the Cowboys on.They are 80 minutes away from another grand final - there is a lot to play for, he said. Hector Herrera Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Jurgen Damm Mexico Jersey . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. http://www.nationalsoccermexico.com/guillermo-ochoa-mexico-jersey/ . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Boston Red Sox are 16-15 in one-run games this season, but John Farrell wants to see more like the 2-1 victory his team pulled out over the Rays on Tuesday.When you have to execute from the mound and defensively, late in games, with minimal margin for error, I think these are very good tests for us as we get this portion of the schedule, particularly on the road, Farrell said. To come through as we have defensively, thats the key.Boston (71-54) has won 10 of 12 -- including three one-run wins -- and will hope to continue that momentum in the third game of a four-games series at the Rays on Wednesday. The pitching matchup suggests it might not end up that close after all.The Red Sox will start RHP Rick Porcello (17-3, 3.22 ERA), who is not only tied for the major league lead with 17 wins, but is coming in hotter than that. Boston has won 11 of his last 12 starts, and in his last five hes 4-1 with a 2.08 ERA with 29 strikeouts and only four walks.Whats more, hes owned the Rays this season, going 3-0 with a 2.25 ERA in three starts against Tampa Bay, striking out 22 and walking four.Thats a stark contrast to Rays starter Matt Andriese, who has struggled since rejoining the Tampa Bay rotation after the trade deadline. The Rays have lost all four game hes started, and hes seen his ERA swell from 2.75 to 3.66 during that span.Andriese opened the season 6-0 and pitched well when he was shifted to the bullpen, but hasnt regained his oold form as a starter. Nestor Araujo Mexico Jersey. Hes stretched himself out to 96 pitches in his last outing but that hasnt translated to more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his starts.The silver lining is that hes pitched well against Boston. He hasnt allowed a run in 9 2/3 innings covering three appearances, including a six-inning gem last year in his only start against the Red Sox in which he allowed one baserunner in a victory.The Rays are 30-5 this season when holding opponents to two runs or fewer after Tuesdays setback, with starter Chris Archer lamenting that every nights not going to be a flawless outing after earning his major league leading 17th loss of the season.The margin for error in a one-run game is so little, as Kevin Kiermaier learned when he was thrown out at third trying to make a double a triple with one out n the eighth inning. Instead of the tying run in scoring position, he was out and the Rays wouldnt get closer than first base the rest of the night.Just kind of in shock over there at third base, how I got thrown out, Kiermaier said of Mookie Betts assist from deep right field. I watched the video after the game, and saw he made an absolutely perfect throw. I always want to put pressure on defense, and its going to take a perfect throw to throw me out. I would not change anything. Id do it again. I tip my hat to him. ' ' '
