Australia cruised to a 12th successive victory over woeful Wales as they ran their hosts ragged at the Principality Stadium. Cheap Air Max .Wales four-Test autumn series - Argentina, Japan and South Africa await over the next three weeks - could not have started in less convincing fashion as Australia shredded them at will, running out 32-8 victors. It was Wales heaviest home defeat since New Zealand crushed them 46-10 in November, 2006.Centres Reece Hodge and Tevita Kuridrani both scored tries, while skipper Stephen Moore, magnificent fly-half Bernard Foley and wing Dane Haylett-Petty also touched down, with Foley adding a penalty and two conversions to leave Wales floundering.Full-back Leigh Halfpenny, making his first Wales appearance since suffering a knee ligament injury 14 months ago, kicked a penalty, while centre Scott Williams claimed a try following impressive build-up work from substitute Hallam Amos, but there was no disputing Australias control.Wales still have not beaten the Wallabies since 2008, and interim head coach Rob Howley - in charge this season while Warren Gatland concentrates on British and Lions business building towards next summers New Zealand tour - has a huge job ahead of him.Wales went into battle without four British and Irish Lions Test players - Sam Warburton, Alun Wyn Jones, Taulupe Faletau and Jonathan Davies - with centre Davies a late withdrawal due to a tight hamstring, which meant his fellow Scarlets midfielder Williams starting.Australia, meanwhile, showed two changes from the side beaten by New Zealand last time out, with David Pocock reverting to blindside flanker instead of a suspended Dean Mumm, and Kuridrani featuring in midfield alongside Hodge.Foley and Halfpenny, playing his first Test since suffering a World Cup-ending knee injury 14 months ago, exchanged early penalties, but there was no disguising Australias dominance in terms of territory and possession.And that control was underlined after just 11 minutes when the Wallabies pack relentlessly drove a lineout towards Wales last line of defence, and Moore pounced for a try.Foley could not add the conversion, but Wales were then temporarily reduced to 14 men when fly-half Dan Biggar was rightly yellow-carded for challenging Wallabies wing Haylett-Petty off the ball as Australia attacked through full-back Israel Folau.Wales had no foothold in the game whatsoever, and accompanied by a muted atmosphere, there was precious little to be enthused about from a Welsh perspective.Although Australia could not score when Biggar was off, they quickly made amends by pouncing for two further touchdowns during an eight-minute spell that underlined how far off the pace Wales were.Hodge scored following brilliant work by Foley and Folau, then Kuridrani crashed through wafer-thin defence and Foley converted to give Australia a 20-3 interval lead that would have been even more emphatic had it not been for some attacking profligacy.Wales, mainly through the work of openside flanker Justin Tipuric, enjoyed a better spell early in the second half, yet Australia still looked far more dangerous with ball in hand as backs and forwards linked impressively.And it was only a matter of time before Australia scored again as Wales were once again cut open in defence, and Foley applied a brilliant finish to put the Wallabies 22 points clear.Williams impressive finish at least gave the crowd something to cheer, but such promise quickly evaporated as scrum-half Rhys Webb went off nursing an ankle injury and was replaced by Gareth Davies.Wales can only hope that Webb will be fit to play a further part in the autumn series, and they at least finished strongly, reserving their best spell for the final 15 minutes with Amos particularly making an impact.Australia, though, predictably had the final say when Haylett-Petty burst into space to complete the rout, and Foley converted. Air Max Australia Cheap . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. Air Max Australia . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. http://www.australiaairmaxwholesale.com/ .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. St Kitts & Nevis Patriots 203 for 7 (Lewis 73, Thomas 48, Watson 3-36) beat St Lucia Zouks 145 for 5 (Watson 55, Charles 40, Badree 2-22) by 58 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsA stampede in the Powerplay by Evin Lewis and Lendl Simmons set up an insurmountable total for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, who defeated St Lucia Zouks by 58 runs on Sunday afternoon at Warner Park. The pair propelled the hosts to 69 for 0 in six overs after being sent in, and Lewis kicked on for a top score of 73 in the Patriots total of 203 for 7.The Patriots had only advanced to 22 after three overs, but Simmons doubled that total in the fourth when he targeted Canada allrounder Nitish Kumars offspin for three sixes and a four. That spurred Lewis to take on Darren Sammy in the fifth as the left-hander smashed the Zouks captain for four consecutive boundaries through the off side.The stand was broken two balls into the seventh over by Derone Davis, when Simmons skewed the left-arm spinner to Shane Watson at short third man for 30, but Lewis had no intention of slowing down and brought up his fifty in 28 balls off Davis in the ninth, before continuing his onslaught with three sixes in four balls against Kristopher Ramsaran in the tenth over.Watson eventuaally intervened to remove Lewis in the 12th, but Devon Thomas surge in the 18th and 19th overs ensured the Patriots would get past 200 as he carted Watson and Morne Morkel for four sixes and a four on his way to 48 off 27. Air Max Womens Australia. Watson dismissed Thomas, and snared Carlos Brathwaite too, in the final over but by then the damage was done.Watson and Johnson Charles seized on the small boundaries at Warner Park to give the Zouks hope of overhauling the target, motoring to 90 after nine overs of the chase. Samuel Badrees intervention dashed that vision though, as he had Charles caught at midwicket for 40 to start the tenth over. Watson brought up his fifty off 26 balls two deliveries later, but mistimed a drive off Badree to long-on two balls into the 12th for 55. From there, the Zouks stuttered through their final eight overs - typified by Michael Husseys 22 off 28 balls - adding just 45 runs to end on 145 for 5.The Patriots have a day off before facing Barbados Tridents at Warner Park on Tuesday while the Zouks have eight days off before their next contest in Providence against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
