Thirtieth birthdays can be both marvellous and depressing affairs; it really depends on a persons individual outlook. Allen Robinson Jersey .Does one reflect on the memories of your 20s and the prospect of whats to come, or instead bemoan the loss of the 20-something years and why its ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE?This Wednesday in Sydney, members of the 1986 Wallabies -- the last Australia team to defeat the All Blacks at Eden Park -- will gather in Sydney to do a bit of both.It will be a 30th birthday of sorts - more so an anniversary -- but as they reflect on memories of that 22-9 triumph under Alan Jones, the topic will almost certainly turn to the future and just exactly where Australian rugby and this current crop of Wallabies are at.On the strength of their 2016 performances, the topic inspires anything but a party mood.With just three wins from nine Tests this season, the Wallabies are enduring one of their worst campaigns of the professional era.And then theres their opposition this weekend: An All Blacks side who havent been beaten since August 2015, when dusted by Australia in Sydney, and for whom an 18th straight win will set a record for consecutive victories by a Tier One team and confirm their place as one of the greatest sides -- if not the greatest -- in the games history.Such has been the quality of the All Blacks rugby in 2016, and the 30-year drought that extends back to 1986, that not even only the most one-eyed Australians can give the Wallabies hope of victory in Auckland on Saturday.In fact, such is the gulf in class and form that bookmakers UBET have installed the All Blacks as $1.07 favourites with the Wallabies friendless at $8.While there is despair at the prospects of an Australian victory, there is opportunity in the forlorn situation the Wallabies find themselves in. They must remind Australia and Australians why theyre relevant.With the AFL and NRL seasons done, the Wallabies have only the A-League in competition for eyeballs this Saturday. But the high-octane start that competition has made this season, particularly Tim Cahills astonishing goal in last Saturdays Melbourne derby, means the Wallabies must deliver a performance that inspires hope for the future.Put simply, Australian rugby cannot afford to drift any further toward the obscurity of irrelevancy.There have been signs of improvement in the Wallabies game since they were completely dominated in twin Bledisloe defeats in August.Wins over South Africa and Argentina in Brisbane and Perth respectively, and a further victory over the Pumas in London, were patchy, but there were periods of positive play that gave hope for a brighter future.So while the Wallabies may be at horrifically long odds to defeat the All Blacks, there is no reason why they cant turn in a performance that tests the two-time reigning world champions and at least increase a few New Zealand pulse rates when considering the prospect of owning the world record outright.If the Wallabies can do that on a weekend when the Australian sporting air is thin, and back it up with further strong performances in Europe -- where victories will be tough to come by but undoubtedly more attainable -- then 2016 may not be totally condemned to the scrapheap.And it might just be enough to set things in the right direction so the 1986 Eden Park Wallabies might have long forgotten the Auckland hoodoo when they meet in 10 years time to mark the 40th anniversary of their win.On, Saturday however, the Wallabies just need to show why theyre relevant. And 30 then, as they say, may just prove to be the new 20 for Australian rugby. A. J. Cann Jersey . That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected. Marcedes Lewis Jersey . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. http:///...rentee-mccray-jersey . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Mired in a four-game skid and their playoff hopes dwindling, the New York Jets shook things up.Geno Smith is in at quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick is out.Now, Todd Bowles bunch will see if any of it can make a difference when the Jets (1-5) take on the Baltimore Ravens (3-3) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.I think its an opportunity for all of us to go out there and try to get a win, Smith said. Were on a four-game losing streak. No one likes it. Its a bitter taste in our mouths.We just have to put together some good practices, build momentum up into the game and then go out there and just play recklessly, play hard with a reckless abandon and do whatever we have to do to get this victory.That was the thinking for Bowles when he decided to switch from Fitzpatrick , who had thrown an NFL-leading 11 interceptions and just five touchdowns in the Jets first six games.New York ranks 26th in overall offense and is last in the NFL in scoring with 15.8 points per game and red zone offense with eight TDs in 22 trips inside opponents 20-yard line (36.4 percent).Hopefully it creates a spark, Bowles said. It gives (Smith) the opportunity to play. Were 1-5 and we havent shown any signs of progress on offense, so I made the change.John Harbaugh and the Ravens -- who have dropped three straight -- entered the week expecting to see Fitzpatrick, but the coach didnt seem too concerned about seeing a different quarterback.It wont change a ton, because I think the offense is going to remain, essentially, the same with what they do, Harbaugh said.It will nuance a little bit in certain directions. We didnt hear that until right at the end of practice out here (Wednesday), but we already put in some stuff that we thought would be more Geno Smith-oriented-type things.Here are some other things to know heading into the Ravens matchup with the Jets:HOWS JOE?: Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco missed the teams first two practices of the week with a right shoulder injury, but he expects to play.Flacco said his shoulder was sore and thought rest would help him be ready. He was injured during the Ravens 27-23 loss to the New York Giants last Sunday and didnt feel any pain until after the game. Flacco added that the MRI results showed nothing to worry about.Its possible, Harbaugh said, that Flacco could sit out practice the entire week and still play. If not, Flaccos backup is Ryan Mallett.Id say hes day-to-day, Harbaugh said of Flacco. In my mind, hes a goo. T.J. Yeldon Jersey. BACK TO NEW JERSEY: A scheduling quirk has the Ravens playing in New Jersey for a second straight Sunday. Theyll hope to escape with a split after losing to the Giants 27-23 .Going there, coming back, and going right back -- Ive never done that before, receiver Mike Wallace said. I think it will be better for us the second time, because we know exactly what to expect, we know exactly how it is going to go. It wasnt a bad trip at all. We went on the train, and it was about two hours. It wasnt bad.NEW CREW: In Smiths previous start for the Jets in the 2014 regular-season finale at Miami, a 37-24 win, he completed 20 of 25 passes for a career-high 358 yards and a perfect 158.3 passer rating.None of the eight players who caught a pass from him that day is on the Jets active roster.Eric Decker is the only one even still on the team, but is on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and also had hip surgery earlier this week. Jace Amaro (Tennessee), Jeff Cumberland (San Diego), Zach Sudfeld (free agent), Jeremy Kerley (San Francisco), Chris Owusu (free agent), Chris Ivory (Jacksonville) and Chris Johnson (Arizona) are all elsewhere.LACK OF SACKS: The Ravens are expected to be without career sacks leader Terrell Suggs (biceps ) and Elvis Dumervil (foot), who had a team-high six in 2015.That leaves veteran tackle Timmy Jernigan and young linebackers Matthew Judon, Kamalei Correa and ZaDarius Smith to pick up the slack.Ill be excited to see those guys play, Harbaugh said of the inexperienced trio of LBs. I really am looking forward to it.The Ravens have 11 sacks this season, including five by Suggs and three by Jernigan. Judon, Correa and Smith have yet to collar the quarterback.GROUNDED: Since entering the NFL in 2008, Jets running back Matt Forte has 13,171 yards from scrimmage -- 8,962 yards rushing, 4,209 yards receiving -- the most in the league during that span.But after a solid start with 196 yards and three touchdowns on 52 carries in his first two games with the Jets, Forte has run for just 164 yards and no TDs on 50 carries in the four games since -- including a season-low 19 yards on nine carries Monday night at Arizona.
