Western Bulldogs ruckman Jordan Roughead will consult a specialist in Melbourne on Sunday as he fights to overcome an eye injury ahead of the AFL grand final. Nike Shox Outlet.Roughead did not return after leaving the Dogs pulsating preliminary final win over Greater Western Sydney in the second quarter when he was hit in the right eye by the ball.However, the Bulldogs are confident Roughead and Matt Suckling, who missed the GWS clash with an Achilles injury, will be fit to face Sydney in Saturdays premiership decider.Hes going to see a specialist and hopefully hell get that all ticked off, Bulldogs midfielder Jack Macrae told reporters on Sunday.Its just a wait-and-see game ... (but) its just his eye - I dont think he was concussed.I think they didnt want to risk (further damage) - when its your eyes thats your life - you dont want to be going blind over footy.Rougheads injury was one of the few negatives to come out of the Dogs stirring win that put them into their first grand final since 1961.Injuries, most notably a season-ending knee injury to captain Bob Murphy, have been a recurring theme for the Bulldogs this year, but coach Luke Beveridges side has shown remarkable resilience to earn their premiership shot.Its hard to put it down to just one thing, but if I had to Id say its the belief in the group, Macrae said.Were a young group but were as determined as any Ive ever seen. The belief in the players and the spirit that we get off each other throughout the year (has been great).When we had injuries players stepped up - it was always about who was coming in to play and not who was going out.Its been a tough year at different times but to get through the other side has really made us grow into a complete team. Nike Shox Nz .

A total of 98 athletes have been caught in retests so far.Also disqualified were Turkish weightlifter Nurcan Taylan, Armenian weightlifter Hripsime Khurshudyan and Belarusian hammer thrower Pavel Kryvitski. None of those were medalists.The IOC stores doping samples for 10 years so they can be retested when new methods become available, meaning drug cheats who escaped detection at the time can be caught years later.The IAAF was asked to consider further sanctions against Pyatnytsya, who could face a two-year ban.Pyatnytsya had a throw of 84.51 meters in London, just 7 centimeters short of the winning throw of gold medalist Keshorn Walcott of Trinidad & Tobago.Finlands Antti Ruuskanen is in line to be bumped from third place to the silver medal, with Vitezslav Vesely of the Czech Republic going from fourth place to the bronze medal.In the three other cases announced Tuuesday:- Taylan, who competed in the womens 48-kilogram division in weightlifting in Beijing but did not finish, tested positive for the steroid stanozolol. Nike Shox r4 For Sale. - Khurshudyan, who finished 11th in the womens 75-kg event in Beijing, also tested positive for stanozolol.- Kryvitski, the 28th-place finisher in the mens hammer throw in London, tested positive for turinabol.Turinabol and stanozolol are both traditional steroids that go back decades.

That was on top of the 53 announced previously.Tuesdays announcement brings to six the number of athletes formally disqualified so far.The retesting program has targeted athletes who were in contention to compete at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but was also widened to cover many medalists. A total of 1,243 samples have been retested so far in the first two waves of the reanalysis program, with two other rounds of testing still to come. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
