    Josh Hazlewood has expressed his desire to see Peter Siddle chosen as Australias third seamer for the WACA Test against South Africa, which starts from November 3, amid talk that a strong first-class record in Perth may play in favour of the potential debutant paceman Joe Mennie. Dee Gordon Jersey.On what the Australians ardently hope will be a more lively WACA surface than the strip that led to a dull draw against New Zealand last summer, Hazlewood said he wanted to be able to partner with Siddle, who has returned to the fold for the first time since February, when he broke down with a back stress fracture.Despite a sterling record both individually and in support of other bowlers in the Test team - specially as the foil to Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris during the 5-0 Ashes sweep four summers ago - Siddle has faced an apparent reluctance by the selectors to choose him at various junctures, most notably in England last year.This time around Mennie has been touted as a possible into the wind seamer given his strong record for South Australia in Perth and also a greater spread of matches this year for Australia A and the Redbacks, on either side of two appearances for the ODI team in South Africa. Hazlewood, however, spoke strongly for Siddle.It is great to have Sids in the 12 and hopefully he gets a crack on Thursday, Hazlewood said after the Test series launch at Elizabeth Quay in Perth. It is great to have an experienced player in the squad who can talk about the different players and the way to go about it. He is valuable come team-meeting time.Hazlewood will make his return to the national side having spent the past month resting up alongside Mitchell Starc, rather than playing in South Africa. He admitted the pair exchanged a few miffed text messages as Australia were throttled 5-0 by South Africa.It did cross the mind occasionally watching from home, Hazlewood said. I didnt watch too much of it. It was tough to watch at times. You would love to be on every tour and playing every game but the way the schedule is impossible for the quicks to do that.Mitch Starc and myself were sending a few text messages back and forth wondering what was going on. Playing South Africa at home is tough in any format. The young bowlers will learn from that.The flatness of some of Australias recent displays has caused some level of introspection about the way the team carries itself on the field, something Hazlewood acknowledged. I dont need to be angrier but I have to have a presence, he said. That is easier to do when you are at home and on top and playing well.When you are down in the dumps, as we were in Sri Lanka, and coming from behind all the time it is a lot harder to do. If we get off to a good start on Thursday we can lead from the front.For that to be possible, many eyes will be on the WACA pitch. The Western Australia boys who played on it last week said there was a little bit there for bat and ball, Hazlewood said. Last year was a bit disappointing and hopefully there is a bit more pace and bounce than this years WACA wicket and it gets back to its traditional way it usually plays. Womens Mariners Jerseys. Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. Cheap Mariners Jerseys. Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. The second regular season of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) has come to an end with the playoffs looming over the next two weekends. While the top two teams from the regular season from each region simply play for seeds, teams three through six are looking for their shot to make it to Amsterdam and play for $250,000. The first week of playoffs on Nov. 5 is a double elimination best-of-five bracket. Heres how the North American bracket could play out.Team names are followed in parentheses by the teams regular season standing.Genesis (3) vs. Revival The first match of the day in North America will feature two of the more exciting teams from the region with the boys from Genesis being on the cusp of automatic LAN qualification. Revival comes in as the bottom seed and with a possible roster shuffle it could be in a tough spot. If Genesis can play at the same level it did during the regular season, it should move on with no issues. Revival, on the other hand, will need a resurgence to move on, and it certainly would start the tournament out on an upset if it were to make it through.Coming into the match, Genesis finished 5-2, only missing out on automatic qualification due to tiebreakers. Revival, on the other hand, snuck through 2-5, only making playoffs due to tiebreakers.This match should be pretty one-sided but there is potential for a shock start, if Revival can bring something new to the table.Prediction: Genesis 3-1 RevivalTake 3 (4) vs. Vendetta (5)The second match of the day is an exciting one and should be a chess match to wattch in a way. Jean Segura Jersey. Take 3 is one of the lowest-scoring teams in the RLCS, averaging only 1.85 goals per game. Vendetta, on the other hand, is the highest-scoring team in the entire RLCS averaging an incredible 2.57 goals per game. Dont expect a whitewash though; despite scoring the most goals in RLCS, Vendetta only managed a +6 goal differential.Take 3 should be the favorite in this matchup especially with Vendetta having made three roster swaps over the course of the four-week-long RLCS regular season. Everything about this matchup screams upset though, with a 4-3 Take 3 facing off against the 3-4 Vendetta which seems to have found a roster its comfortable with. If Vendetta can keep the level of offensive firepower that it has sustained this far, it can pull out the upset.Prediction: Vendetta 2-3 Take 3Picks to advanceShadowboxing a bracket fully is certainly not a science, but the teams who should make it to top four on Nov. 12 and play for their seeding at LAN should be Genesis and Take 3. Genesis simply looks a class above anyone else who is in this section of the tournament and should comfortably make it through assuming something horrible doesnt happen.Take 3 is an interesting team. Despite going 4-3 in regular season it only had a 44.4 percent win rate, which means it either wins close sets, or gets smashed. Expect Take 3 to grind out the wins and take it slowly, qualifying through calm and collected play.
