saint helen's head coach is expected to be named the new coast of the titans, that's within the next 24 hours and set to see out the rest of the season with the saints. we will speak to the new england forward george burgess. hello and welcome to sportsday. after a glorious summer for england's world cup winning one—day side, the ashes gets under way at edgbaston in just three days' time and england have to "raise their game" for a "hard and tough" series according to director of men's cricket ashley giles. 0ur sport's editor dan roan. it may only be just over two weeks
since that historic world cup triumph at lourdes for england but 110w triumph at lourdes for england but now they have to switch attention to the second half of the summer and of course that means the ashes which sta rts course that means the ashes which starts here on thursday as you can see behind me they are putting the final preparations to the rickets, and it looks splendid here and of course it's been a happy hunting ground over the years for england. they have not lost a test my chair for some 11 years and of course there ashes record is a very impressive as well, not since 2001 had they lost against australia in a test series on home soil. having said that, they did of course get convincingly beaten in the last few easily on australian soil by four tests a nd easily on australian soil by four tests and self joe easily on australian soil by four tests and selfjoe root‘s site will be desperate to make amends for that and to be game the earn. early on i spoke to megan —— managing director of england cricket, ashley giles and he told me how important it was that england took advantage of their fine record here. i think it's always
important to get off to a good start, paying them and hopefully help us do that. it's been a good venue help us do that. it's been a good venue for us, we've got a lot of success venue for us, we've got a lot of success here. but it is a relatively compacted series. australians have been here for a long time as well but if we can start well it will make it a very long trip for them. but it's important that we do that. as ever, david weiner will of course bea as ever, david weiner will of course be a key man for australia and having served that year—long band for his role in the ball tempering scandal last year, he of course has a big point to prove. he had a really successful world cup a big point to prove. he had a really successful world cu p ca m pa ig n with australia and now he'll be relishing the opportunity to score yet more runs in the ashes but at training today at edgbaston, he was struck on the five and there is now a slight injury concern. i asked the former legendary stallion captain acting as a mentor for the current
australian team here for the first two tests. the latest on the injury. he's tougher than ever, given a bit of ice and he'll be all right. the wa ke of ice and he'll be all right. the wake of that brawl outside a bristol nightclub in august 2017 but since then, much has happened. he was cleared of a free last year and of course played a starring role at the world cup for england. and he is now being rewarded by being reinstated as advice captain. he told me why they made that decision. he's come a long way in the last three months, it's been a difficult period for him. what i've seen is nothing but someone him. what i've seen is nothing but someone who's extremely professional, discipline, works hard and these going now on and off the field. he's a realtalisman and these going now on and off the field. he's a real talisman for this group of players. and he'll be a great lieutenant. as he's always remained when he's not kept their
advice captain v. we can get rewarded for their hard work he has put in over that period. the weather here as you can see put in over that period. the weather here as you can see may be glorious today but the forecast is a little u nsettled today but the forecast is a little unsettled for the remainder of the week. all being well, the action will get under way here on thursday morning. huge amounts at stake, one thing especially with england having already won a first ever cricket world cup can now tap that off with regaining the ashes and it will surely go down as the greatest summary surely go down as the greatest summary in their team's history. rory mcilroy‘s erratic form continued as he carded a final round 71 at the wgc—fedex stjude invitational, failing to capitalise on the chance to win his first tournament since missing the cut at the open. the northern irishman had a one—shot lead going into a final day duel against world n01 and playing partner brooks koepka in memphis. the weld number one against the well number three. it should have been a day for golf fans to save her in sign, instead it proved to be
another day of misery for mcelroy in memphis. the northern irishman began the day with a one—shot lead of our books in of the world comp —— golf championship. an advantage that was gone by three. with an early birdie. two more followed at holes five and six as the american move top of the leaderboard, pressure now firmly on mcelroy. pressure he could not handle, bogeys at 12 and 15 ending any hopes of winning the event. mcelroy would go on to finish in a tie for fourth well—kept prosecutor in his third win —— win of the season. it's the second time in just over a week that he appears to have crumbled in the going got tough. an opening round of eight of par at the opening round of eight of par at the open so him to fail to make the cut. what —— what on earth? can we start ain? what —— what on earth? can we start again? he admitted nerves got the better of him. i obviously did not
get off to the best of starts, understandably nervous on the first tee. tough day. i put myself behind the ball early and try to, lay back and it was doing 0k the ball early and try to, lay back and it was doing ok for a while and just let it fill at the end. when the pressure is off, mcelroy proves he still one of the best. six on 65 nearly saw him scraping to the weekend over the open while a's third round of eight under par in memphis put them in control of the world golf championships. he tasted success this season with victories at the players championship and the canadian open. he's also lifted for major titles as well although they came into thousand 14. there are numerous opinions being voiced about how he should learn to cope with the big occasions. perhaps he should simply listen to the man who just beaten him. everything comes if you just let it happen. if you keep playing well and putting us in contention a lot of good things will
happen. it might be a case of forget the pressure, focus on patients. if he can do that than expected to see him and kept coming face—to—face again in the not—too—distant future. a short while ago i spoke to the us based golfjournalist, alex micelli, a regular part of the slive golf team and asked him what's not quite there in mcilroy‘s game this is not something that is new. generally what happens is he finds a way to make it back to the top ten, that was not the case this time. he was man—to—man with brooks koepka and worry mcelroy brings not only once but numerous times as brooks kept ijust once but numerous times as brooks kept i just flew in once but numerous times as brooks kept ijust flew in under the radar and won the tournament. i don't know what to say about worry mcelroy at this point. golf is hard, there's no question about that. if you let your emotions get in the way which i think very dead it makes it even more difficult. but that being said,
he was trying to win that golf tournament or at least show up in the final round and he did neither. i don't think it's a technical issue it isa i don't think it's a technical issue it is a mental issue clearly at this point. how do you wrap your head around a mental issue and dealing with the fact that it's hard to win on the pga tour, everyone is asking me why i'm not winning, why i'm not doing that or this. i think worry mcelroy he needs to assess what is the way to approach these things going forward and the way he's doing it currently works at times and doesn't work at other times. —— when you saw shane lori, he talked about the fact that he embraced the situation as it was. worry mcelroy seems situation as it was. worry mcelroy seems to deflect those situations instead of embracing them. and so when you put that grandiose idea out there that you're going to win the masters and when that whale port rush because it's in northern iran, you have to embrace that. you have to suck it up, you have to just understand that this is what i'm going to do and nothing will deter
me and nothing is going to change that goal and i'm going to love doing it. worry mcelroy does not seem doing it. worry mcelroy does not seem to be in that situation right now mentally. if you can build -- when the masters and bring that career grants slam he'll be remembered as one of the greatest players to come from europe in the history of golf. it is too early for us history of golf. it is too early for us to anoint rory one way or the other. but if he does not win another major, and said to me which means he would not win another master as he said anything one of the best players to come out of europe. he will not be the best. the new fooball season officially gets under way on friday night. jurgen klopp has dismissed talk that sunday's community shield clash with manchester city is a curtain raiser and has described it as a final. liverpool lost again in preseason yesterday, this time a 3—0 defeat against napoli in edinburgh. it follows defeats against borussia dortmund and sevilla in the united states.
nothing to do for me with the rest of the season, it's a game and if we play for example i would make to try to wing it, it's a final, first time i realise that nobody seems to be like that to be honest. it's unbelievable. so, if you think co nsta ntly unbelievable. so, if you think constantly about the game how can you prepare? there are still doubts over whether two clubs in league one will be able to fulfill their opening day fixtures this weekend. bolton and bury have been told they're "likely" to be suspended if they don't meet a new efl deadline for outstanding commitments. bolton have been in administration since the middle of may, with a proposed takeover of the club still not complete. bolton are due to start the season at wycombe on saturday, but wycombe have already confirmed they've suspended ticket sales for away fans. plenty of other football stories to bring you up to date with today. manchester united's preseason plans aren't settled yet. romelu lukaku has been left out of their squad that travelled to norway this morning. the belgiam international‘s been

saw myself going back and playing top flights rugby league and i've a [we ys top flights rugby league and i've always thought of wigan as a great clu b always thought of wigan as a great club and one of the top clubs in england so it just club and one of the top clubs in england so itjust came about and took the opportunity to sign with a great club and we are going to move forward i think. he won't play again before joining forward i think. he won't play again beforejoining weekend. this is on the back of the band for the england test ceres and new zealand. so much is being said but what is your view on all of this? hopefully i'll be back for the finals and hopefully i'll get a few more games before the seasonis i'll get a few more games before the season is finished but it's really u nfortu nate season is finished but it's really unfortunate situation with what happened and it was definitely an accident and something that i really regretted at the time and it was just unfortunate already having the charge from england game and
happening again. not playing again and doing things like that is the spirit of the game and your body goes into autopilot and things can happen but yes, from my point of view it was never an intentional thing. you'd only be 30 when this contract is up and give me sign a new one but that three year deal, what can you achieve in these three yea rs what can you achieve in these three years at the beginning?” what can you achieve in these three years at the beginning? i think we've got a great team and we've made some good signings and i think we've got it all there in front of us we've got it all there in front of us telling super leak and that's what my goal is to do is to go back to england and windows titles. it's a huge move for you because australia has been your home for the last ten years obviously you grew up in yorkshire but a big move as you say you have got three young kids andl say you have got three young kids and i wife who are all australian and i wife who are all australian and now you're heading back home. i
