CARDIFF -- Wales second string proved too strong to Tonga as first-half tries by centres Owen Williams and Ashley Beck set up a scrappy 17-7 win for the Six Nations champions at Millennium Stadium on Friday. Ian Desmond Jersey . Wales coach Warren Gatland rested the majority of his first-choice players ahead of next weeks match against Australia and their replacements lacked the fluency to take full advantage of their dominance of possession in Cardiff. It was still relatively comfortable for the Welsh, though, with Williams taking Leigh Halfpennys pass and weaving through two tackles to score in the 15th minute and Beck finishing expertly in the left corner in the 24th after George North had made a hole in the Tongan defence. Halfpenny converted both tries and added a penalty, with Viliami Helus 33rd-minute try being Tongas only reply. Alejandro De Aza Jersey . The second-ranked Jayhawks will play the Miners of Texas-El Paso at Imperial Arena in the Bahamas. The game can be seen live on TSN2 starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. Fernando Rodney Jersey . Following the Ford Womens World Curling Championship gold medal match that attracted record-breaking audiences to TSN, the networks exclusive live coverage of the tournament begins Saturday at 7am et/4am pt with Canadas opening draw against Denmark. . No pretty goals on this night, just get to the front of the net and fight for a chance.Entering this season, the Winnipeg Jets talked frequently about improving from within. This meant increasing their win and point total - and subsequent playoff chances - by getting more out of the players already within the organization. The philosophy was two-fold: promotion of some players from their American Hockey League affiliate in St. Johns to take roster spots; and secondly, receive a production boost from the returning core group of players already established on the team. Thus far, theyve done both as centre Adam Lowry and defenceman Ben Chiarot have graduated from the AHL to become full-time players in the National Hockey League, while a veteran like Chris Thorburn has provided more scoring this season than he had the last two years combined. As a result, this combination of growing from within is highly evident on the clubs third forward line. Since being assembled five games ago, the trio of Lowry and Thorburn along with another veteran, Evander Kane, has provided the team with energy and offensive production. Even in the midst of a current three-game losing skid, the Lowry line has been Winnipegs best, frequently forechecking with zeal and spending the majority of their minutes inside the oppositions zone. In fact, the three have become the embodiment of what kind of team and style head coach Paul Maurice wants the Jets to become in perpetuity. That identity has certainly been on display for most of the clubs 51 games this season. We play to our strengths, said Thorburn, who signed a three-year extension with the club last off-season. And our strength is size and speed. If were going, its intimidating and hard to play against. An injury to star forward Mathieu Perreault before the all-star break forced Maurice to juggle his lines. One of the moves was to elevate Thorburn to the third line while Kane moved up to fill Perreaults spot on the left side beside Mark Scheifele on the second line. And even when Perreault returned after missing two games, Thorburn stayed put with Lowry and Kane slipped back to join them to form an impressive unit. I thought (Chris) game had started to come even prior to (Perreaults) injury, said Maurice. For Thorburn, its been about opportunity. And now at 31-years-old and a veteran of nearly 600 NHL games, hes seized it. The correlation between playing time and offensive production is relevant. Since the move into the Top 9, his minutes have doublled in the last five games from under six to 13 per game and the points have followed. St. Louis Cardinals Dexter Fowler Jersey. Over that span, the rugged forward has three goals and four points in the last handful of games, which includes scoring the game-winning goal in a recent victory over the Blackhawks in Chicago. Maurice credits Thorburn and recently injured forward Matt Halischuk with the ability to be interchangeable parts for the team. That includes sliding up and down from the fourth line to the third or being able to play left or right wing effectively. Either way, Thorburn understands the value he can provide in being that type of player for the team, especially with the way the game is changing and players with one dimension to their game finding less of a place on NHL rosters. Im just trying to help the team, he said. We have some big bodies and durable bodies. Its been a wolfpack mentality. Weve done a good job of sticking together and being difficult for other teams to play against. And while many thought the growing from within mantra by the Jets last summer was a recipe for mixed results at best, the returns to date have been positive. At this point, the club employs what is considered three scoring lines and one checking line and theyve managed that without spending a fortune in free agency and firmly have become a playoff contender. Stay tuned! NOTES: As a franchise, the Jets have lost 14 straight games in Pittsburgh... Centre Jim Slater is 41 games away from tying Ilya Kovalchuk for the most games played in franchise history (594)... Like the stat or not, the Jets boast their top 13 scorers as plus or even players in the plus/minus category... The quickest game involving the Jets this season is a two hour, 11-minute victory in Buffalo on November 26. The longest game this season was a road shootout loss to Anaheim that took two hours and 57 minutes... Here are your Top 3 minutes leaders on the Jets this season: Toby Enstrom (24:05), Jacob Trouba (23:24) and Dustin Byfuglien (23:05)... Last week, the Jets announced they will add 278 premium seats to the MTS Centre for next season, bringing the total capacity for hockey at the venue to 15,294. That might not seem like a major increase, but the extra seats should generate $3-5 million (all figures U.S.) in additional revenue for the club – something theyll need with the salary cap in the NHL expected to rise next season to over $70 million.
