The late Roger Millward epitomised the sort of play that is in danger of disappearing from the game, says Sky Sports Phil Clarke in this weeks column. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Jerry-Rice-Draft-Jersey/ ... The death of a legend is always a time of great sadness, but it should also be a time of great hope and inspiration. Millward was both a great player and a successful coach.If you have the chance, please spend some time and search for footage on the internet which shows just how good a player he was. He was fast, brave, skilful and evasive, but more than anything he was instinctive. He used his eyes and the creative part of his brain to attack his opponents. He set up and scored hundreds of tries by reacting to what was happening around him. The best tries are always the ones that you dont expect to see, and he scored many of those. I hope his legacy can be an inspiration to the next generation of midfield maestros. Phil Clarke on Roger Millward In my opinion, most fans pay to see creativity on a rugby field. They appreciate the brutal battle that takes place in the middle of the pitch, and they dont mind seeing a try from a pre-planned move now and again, but it is magic moments that they talk about on their way home, ones that are totally unrehearsed. These are what makes them return for the next game.I watched a great TED talk recently by Sir Ken Robinson. It posed the question Do schools kill creativity? - he looked at the path all educational systems have gone down over the past 100 years and identified that we have prioritised logical thinking over creativity. WATCH: Super League tries Phil Clarkes top 5 Super League tries from round 13 It is a bit the same in rugby league. The structured play of who stands where, runs into which hole in their opponents defensive line, passes behind which team-mate, its a bit like watching a driverless car.It just does not excite you even though I can see that it efficiently gets you from A to B, or over the tryline. If we are not careful we are in danger of ridding the game of creative thinking by simply focusing on having more attacking numbers than defending ones. As rugby league mourns the death of one of its greatest players, Sky Sports remembers Millwards career in this fascinating interview with Brian Carney Its logical but it doesnt fire the part of the brain that makes you smile or get up out of your seat.There is a bigger danger that the shift away from an autonomous thinking in attack will become boring - if it hasnt already. Worse still, we are in danger of damaging young players by encouraging them to copy this style of play.Not all coaches are guilty of it but I worry that we are stifling the talents of more players by getting them to play like robots. The obsession with completion rates discourages players from taking a risk. We need to radically alter that thinking and encourage players not to worry about being wrong and losing the ball, mistakes will happen. Millward lifted the Challenge Cup with Hull KR in 1980 after beating Hull FC 10-5 in the final It seems to me that coaches need to feed the imagination of their players, not just provide a template like a choreographer would do for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. Professional sport is about entertaining people and we need to remember that.Roger Millward epitomised the sort of play that I think is in danger of disappearing from the game. The best tries are always the ones that you dont expect to see, and he scored many of those. I hope his legacy can be an inspiration to the next generation of midfield maestros.

The outspoken cornerback, whose key defensive stop against San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree in Januarys NFC Championship Game helped vault the Seahawks into the Super Bowl, picked off Colin Kaepernick twice as Seattle (8-4) limited the 49ers offense to just 164 total yards. Every win is important, Sherman said. This win is no more important than any other win this season. Russell Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown pass to Robert Turbin, Marshawn Lynch ran for 104 yards on 20 carries and Steven Hauschka kicked five field goals for the Seahawks, who have won five of their last six games. The Seahawks now sit all alone for second place in the NFC West behind Arizona, which owns a 9-2 record heading into its matchup against Atlanta on Sunday. Kaepernick threw for 121 yards on 16-of-29 passing as the 49ers (7-5) had their three-game win streak come to an end. In all areas, they played better team football, said 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. We have to come back and win them all. After both teams punted on their first two possessions, Sherman intercepted a Kaepernick dart along the right sideline to give the Seahawks the ball inside 49ers territory. Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin across the middle and two plays later, Turbin caught a 13-yard swing pass and tiptoed into the end zone for a 7-0 lead with 1:29 to play in the opening quarter. On Seattles next drive, Wilson sccrambled to elude multiple blitzing defenders and hit Tony Moeaki with a 63-yard strike to the San Francisco 2. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Giorgio-Tavecchio-Draft-Jersey/. The 49ers made a goal-line stand and the Seahawks settled for a 21-yard Hauschka field goal. Hauschka split the uprights again, this time from 36 yards out, to cap a 5- play, 42-yard trek and increase the Seahawks lead to 13-0 with 5:40 remaining in the first half. Lynchs 33-yard scamper led to Hauschkas 35-yard field goal for a 16-0 score near the midway point of the third quarter. he 49ers finally got on the board after Phil Dawson booted a 40-yarder with 1:06 to play in the stanza. Less than five minutes into the fourth, the Seahawks answered with Hauschkas fourth field goal of the evening, a 46-yarder, which was set up by Lynchs 16- yard run and Jermaine Kearses 17-yard grab. Kaepernick moved the ball near midfield on San Franciscos ensuing drive, but Sherman jumped in front of a pass intended for Stevie Johnson to intercept the ball at Seattles 32 with 7:13 remaining to put the game away. I told the sideline if they threw it my way, Id end the game. And they did, said Sherman. Game Notes Seattle ended a five-game skid on the road against San Francisco ...
