    Springboks coach Allister Coetzee is well aware something needs to change, and quickly, after their Rugby Championship campaign came to an embarrassing end at the hands of the All Blacks at the weekend.South Africa were battered 57-15 by the World Cup holders in Kings Park in Durban, the biggest loss the Boks have ever suffered against the World Champions.Coetzees men have now gone over three hours without scoring a try, with Bryan Habana the last man wearing green and gold seen dotting down in their 41-13 loss to the All Blacks in Christchurch on September 17.The Springboks coach will sit down with South Africas Super Rugby coaches next week as well as the SARU management for an Indaba to highlight what core skills need to be worked on before his side travel to Europe to play England, Italy and Wales.If you look at a few contestable kicks and the aerial skills are not good enough, Coetzee told Sport24.Thats why the Indaba is important; to address those focus areas where we think were lacking.I know what we need to fix but I would also like to know from other top coaches in the country if they agree or concur that these are the skill sets that were lacking.Contact skills, for arguments sake. We get into good positions on the field and we just lose it.?

"Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. The San Antonio Spurs have not lost a road game all season -- although that streak was certainly put to the test Monday in Milwaukee.Thanks to a big second half, the Spurs (17-4) erased a first-half deficit and edged the Bucks, 97-96, to improve to an impressive 12-0 away from San Antonio. The Spurs road winning streak will be on the line once again Tuesday night in Minneapolis.For whatever reason, San Antonio is playing much better basketball on the road -- the Spurs are just 5-4 at AT&T Center this year.The reason why his team is barely .500 at home despite remaining perfect on the road has escaped head coach Gregg Popovich.If I knew, we wouldnt lose, Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News.San Antonios lineup Tuesday will be worth watching as Popovich tries to keep his players healthy during a stretch of four games in seven days. Theres a chance some players may be given rest against a Minnesota team that is just 6-15 on the season.Veteran guard Tony Parker returned to San Antonios lineup Monday against Milwaukee after missing two games with a thigh contusion.

To make it two straight wins, the Wolves and coach Tom Thibodeau will have to top one of the best teams in the NBA.Minnesota has struggled to close out games this year, seeing many second-half leads disappear. That wassnt the case Saturday against Charlotte, however, as the Wolves escaped with a 125-120 overtime victory.ddddddddddddSaturdays win allowed Minnesota to let out a sigh of relief after losing seven games in an eight-game stretch.I havent smiled like that and felt that good in a while, Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns told the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Monday. (Tuesday) was an amazing day. I havent had a day like that. A lot of smiles, happy.Towns was a big reason for Minnesotas sixth win of the year. The second-year big man had 27 points and 15 rebounds, including six points in overtime. It was his 11th double-double of the year, tied for eighth most in the league.As the early-season losses have piled for the Wolves, Towns has tried to shoulder much of the blame on his own -- even though hes hardly the reason for Minnesotas inability to string together wins. In 20 games so far this year, the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year is averaging a double-double: 22.6 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.Given how hard Towns has been on himself, Saturdays win was particularly satisfying.The way were losing, not getting blown out but making mental errors late in the game, it hurt us. It hurts me, especially, Towns told the Star Tribune. To have a win like that, Im finally able to smile, laugh a lot more and have my spirits up. ' ' '
