England are set to spring a selection surprise for Saturdays autumn opener against South Africa by naming Elliot Daly at outside centre in place of Jonathan Joseph. Cheap Dodgers Jerseys Authentic .PA Sport understands Daly is poised to make his first Test start after winning five caps as a replacement, forming a new midfield partnership with Owen Farrell that will provide two long-range kicking options.Joseph -- demoted to the bench for the visit of the Springboks to Twickenham -- had been struggling with a minor groin injury, but the Bath three-quarter was on Wednesday declared fully fit by scrum coach Neal Hatley.Jonathan trained on Tuesday and will be able to train on Thursday as well, Hatley said.England name their starting XV on Thursday morning and if, as expected, Daly is the preferred option, it will be the first time Joseph has been dropped since re-establishing himself during the 2015 RBS 6 Nations.Daly was one of the Aviva Premierships form players last season with his acceleration and eye for an outside break terrorising defences to Wasps benefit.Despite Dalys form, head coach Eddie Jones opted to retain Joseph for this years Six Nations, and, for all his dynamism in open play, it might be the 24-year-olds long-range left boot that has resulted in his promotion to the starting XV.Meanwhile, Hatley insists Mako Vunipolas rapid set-piece improvement has transformed him into the complete player.Alex Corbisiero, a distinguished predecessor in the Red Rose number one jersey, has acclaimed Vunipola as the best loosehead in world rugby on the strength of a rampaging start to the season at Saracens.While the impact in open play of Englands form player has never been doubt, his scrummaging was considered a potential weakness until the recent progress brought about by a technical adjustment.Mako has been absolutely outstanding for Saracens in the first half of the season, Hatley said.There arent many props in world rugby that can do what he does with the ball in hand.His set-piece has come on immeasurably.Sometimes people get pigeon-holed as a carrying prop or a scrummaging prop and I think he crosses that divide.Hes been very sound from a set-piece point of view. Weve made a few little technical changes to his bind and thats had a real positive effect.There are a lot of good players around, but hes definitely getting there in terms of being the best loosehead in the world. If Corbs said that, its a pretty good endorsement.South Africa are experiencing their worst run of results for a decade, including a record home defeat to New Zealand, but Hatley insists their threat must not be underestimated.They will probably go with a big pack and a big back five in the way theyve tried to do for most of the year. It will be a good side, Hatley said.They have been a state of flux, but when theyve played well they have been very impressive. The Lions did well in Super Rugby. Were expecting a good side to turn up.They have a very good scrum and will probably load up on that back five. There will be big bulk there so it will be a testing day from a scrum point of view.

JOHNS, N. TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors will look to close out its first homestand of the season on a winning note after dropping a 94-91 decision to the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.The Raptors (1-1) wrap up a three-game home stretch against the visiting Denver Nuggets (1-1) on Monday night at Air Canada Centre. The Nuggets begin a five-game road trip in Toronto after falling 115-113 to the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.Despite the home loss, theres good news on the horizon for the Nuggets. Both forward Darrell Arthur and guard Gary Harris could return from injury against the Raptors.Harris has missed the first two games with a groin injury.Its good to see him on the court (Friday). And as is always the case, how does he feel the next day, coach Michael Malone told the Denver Post prior to Saturdays game.Arthur, meanwhile, has missed both games due to a knee injury.Gary is a guy that is one of the better young two-way players in the NBA, Malone said. We are going to be really smart and prudent about his injury and not rush him back so when he does come back, we can have him for an extended stay.Facing the Raptors will mark the first NBA game north of the border for Canadian guard Jamal Murray.

Through his first two games of the season, Murray has averaged 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists.Its very difficult, youve got to have some intellect going your way, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said of a young player like Murray adjusting to the NBA. Hes a very intelligent kid.Hes going to be a nice young player, also, his speed with the basketball, his ability to shoot the ball -- once he understands the speed of the game, angles and personnel and understands the league after he goes through it a couple times -- hes going to be a really really effective player for Denver.The Raptors dropped both games against the Nuggets last season falling 106-105 at home in December and losing 112-93 at Denver in February.People looked at them last year and said, Well how did you lose to them twice? Theyre a very talented, skilled team that I think is underrated just because theyre so young, Casey said.Toronto opened its 22nd season with a 109-91 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday before falling to the Cavaliers.Following Mondays game, Toronto heads to Washington to play the Wizards on Wednesday before returning home to host the Miami Heat on Friday.
