Coach Alan Richardson has named Jarryn Geary, David Armitage and Jack Steven as potential leadership replacements after St Kilda AFL legend Nick Riewoldts likely move to hand over the captaincy at the end of this season. Justin Vogel Jersey .The AFLs longest-serving skipper told the Nine Network this week he expected this season would be his last in charge of the Saints, even though it would leave him agonisingly short of a record.I think it is time, he said.I certainly hope between now and the rest of the year someone puts their hand up and takes the job next year.Riewoldt will edge ahead of the late Ted Whitten in third place on the list of all-time games played as an AFL captain when he leads St Kilda for the 213rd time against Essendon on Sunday at Etihad Stadium.He will be on 220 games if he plays every match for the rest of the season, six behind Carltons Steve Kernahan and four short of the Bombers Dick Reynolds.Richardson said Riewoldts decision was a sign of his incredible selflessness.He embraces the role and hes as impressive a leader as Ive ever worked with, he told reporters on Friday.The reality is that its probably getting to that time where we need someone else to come through.It would be great for that leader to have Nick at least for another year to work with him so I think something like that will happen.I think he would be disappointed if we hadnt identified someone for 2017 to be our skipper.Richardson said Geary, Armitage and Steven had each shown good leadership when filling in.He also admitted he was not sure when young forward Paddy McCartin would be medically cleared to play again, although it would be this year.Richardson pointed out the shaken Saint had passed the concussion test that would have allowed him to resume last weekend against Gold Coast.All the initial tests are positive. Some of the external tests with neurologists are ongoing, but hes heading in a positive direction, Richardson said.Well be a bit more cautious given its his third one (concussion).Im not sure when Paddy will be back. We think it will be much sooner rather than later and he will play significant footy for us this year. Geronimo Allison Jersey . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. Kevin King Jersey . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. http:///...ason-Spriggs-Jersey/ . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . From the first major event of the season, in Australia, to the final weekend of the year, the pool of barn-burning matches did not lack.Here are our top 10 matches of 2016:1. Juan Martin del Potro def. Andy Murray 6-4, 5-7, 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-4, Davis Cup semifinals A few weeks after their Rio de Janeiro classic, del Potro met Murray again, this time in Glasgow for a Davis Cup tie. This match provided a running time in excess of five hours and also a different ending with del Potro as the victor. The win was merely a harbinger for del Potro, who carried his magic into the Davis Cup final in late November, where he memorably beat Marin Cilic in a hair-raising 6-7(4), 2-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-3 win, which was just seven minutes shy of five hours.2. Petra Kvitova def. Angelique Kerber 6-7 (10), 7-5, 6-4, Wuhan Open third roundAll you need to know about this match was the epic, lung-busting 41-shot rally that in the end was only a sample of their 3-hour, 20-minute match. Kvitova had no fear all day long, bringing it to the newly minted world No. 1. It was a promising showing from Kvitova, who played with little consistency all year long.3. Roger Federer def. Marin Cilic 6-7(4), 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(9), 6-3, Wimbledon quarterfinals Federer called this one epic as he came back from two sets down, including saving three match points along the way, to defeat Cilic in their Wimbledon quarterfinal. Im probably going to look back on this as being a great, great match that I played in my career, on Centre Court at Wimbledon, Federer said to the press afterward. This is huge for me, my season, my career. It was the 10th time Federer had come back from a two-set deficit.4. Angelique Kerber def. Serena Williams 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, Australian Open finalWhat better way to win a first Grand Slam title than to defeat Serena in the final? And to do so with great power and poise, which also prevented Williams from drawing level with Steffi Grafs 22 majors. Well, thats exactly how this years three-set Australian Open final played out for Germanys Kerber, who was left with goosebumps. My whole life, Ive worked hard, she told the press afterward. To say, I am a Grand Slam champion is crazy.5. Andy Murray def. Milos Raonic 5-7, 7-6(5), 7-6(9), ATP World Tour Finals semifinalsMurrays talent as an escapologist was apparent when saving a match point in his semifinal against Raonic in London. At 3 hours, 38 minutes, it was the longest-ever three-set match in the history of the tournament (exttending a record Murray had just set only days earlier when taking 3 hours, 20 minutes to defeat Kei Nishikori in the group stages). Mason Crosby Jersey. This was a victory freighted with significance as it propelled Murray into the finals, whered hed beat Novak Djokovic to clinch the year-end No. 1.6. Andy Murray def. Juan Martin del Potro 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5, Rio Olympics finalMurrays four-set, four-hour victory against del Potro in the Olympic final will be remembered for the brutal rallies. Murray had never played a harder match to win a big title, and del Potro was so physically spent that he felt dizzy and close to passing out. Body parts were dropping off; the Argentine said he left the last of his toenails on the court.7. Karolina Pliskova def. Venus Williams 4-6 6-4 7-6 (3), US Open fourth roundAt 36 years old, Williams had a point to become the oldest Grand Slam quarterfinalist since 1994. And I really played the perfect point, but she managed to stay alive, Williams said after losing to Pliskova. The Czech would go on to defeat Venus younger sister, Serena, in the semifinal before finishing as the runner-up to Angelique Kerber.8. Dominika Cibulkova def. Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3, 5-7, 9-7, Wimbledon fourth roundCibulkovas three-hour win against Radwanska at the All England Club was the toughest match of her career. It might also have been among the most satisfying. Cibulkova saved a match point and ultimately reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for the first time.9. Nick Kyrgios def. Dustin Brown 6-7 (7), 6-1, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, Wimbledon second round Kyrgios had promised a circus before his second-round match at Wimbledon against his friend Brown, with each playing an exciting and flamboyant brand of tennis. And a circus was what we got. In their own way, both brought some chaos and disorder to the grass. Kyrgios five-set victory was not without incident. He was given a code violation for swearing and let it be known he thought some of umpire Jake Garners decisions had been horrendous.10. Stan Wawrinka def. Dan Evans 4-6, 6-3, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (8), 6-2, US Open third roundEvans fittingly called the loss just a bit of a heartbreaker. Evans, ranked No. 63, had a match point against Wawrinka but failed to capitalize in the fourth-set tiebreaker. Wawrinka dodged defeat and would go on to win the title for the first time.
