GLASGOW -- Canada enjoyed a successful first day at the Glasgow Sevens rugby tournament, finishing on top of Pool B with wins over Japan and France and a draw with England. Christian Yelich Jersey . Canada opened Saturdays play with a 52-0 thumping of Japan, and followed with a 28-12 win over France. That was enough to guarantee them a spot in the quarter-finals of the Cup competition. In a battle for top spot in Pool B, Canada and England fought to a 7-7 draw. Philip Mack converted his own try in the first half to give Canada an early lead, but Tom Powell replied with a converted try in the second to draw England level. Both Canada and England, which is currently fourth in the IRB Sevens World Series overall standings, finished with eight points in three matches, but the Canadians took top spot in the pool with a superior point differential. "I thought we had chances to score but so did they," Canada coach Geraint John said of England. "Its important for us to top the group. Weve come close in recent tournaments but we have shown the depth here, as well as the big players stepping up." Canada will play Kenya in Sundays quarter-final. The Kenyans advanced after a surprising 33-19 win over Argentina. England will face Fiji, ranked third on the circuit. Canada reached a fifth straight quarter-finals for the first time. Earlier, Canada routed Japan behind three tries by Mike Scholz. Sean White, Connor Braid, Mike Fuailefau, John Moonlight and Harry Jones also crossed the line, while Mack booted four conversions. Moonlight, Conor Trainor, Sean Duke and Scholz scored tries against France, while Mack kicked four conversions. Canada entered the tournament seventh in the overall series standings, one point behind Samoa. The Glasgow Sevens is the second-last stop on the Sevens World Series circuit. The schedule concludes with the London Sevens next weekend. Elsewhere, New Zealand underlined its tournament ambitions with a 19-5 win over South Africa in an uncommon pool matchup of the world series two leading teams. New Zealand and South Africa previously met only in finals this season, with the Africans winning two of three. But New Zealands consistency has it leading the series by seven points. Despite resting stars DJ Forbes and Tim Mikkelson, New Zealand dominated the pool decider physically, but struggled to score. New Zealand will face Australia in the quarter-finals, while South Africa lined up host Scotland, which topped a pool for the first time in more than a year thanks to comfortable wins over Australia, the United States and Spain. Jhoulys Chacin Jersey . -- Jose Bautista never worries about hitting homers during the regular season. Corey Knebel Jersey .Y. -- A month ago, Syracuse was unbeaten, ranked No. http://www.brewersteamshop.com/Brewers-Zach-Davies-Kids-Jersey/ . -- Fantasy football owners and Denver Broncos fans can rest easy: Peyton Manning is back.MONTREAL - On a day when the elite of the hockey world and Canadian politics turned out to honour Jean Beliveau, it was another Montreal Canadiens star who summed it up best.O captain, my captain, bon voyage, said Yvan Cournoyer, borrowing from poet Walt Whitman in a tearful eulogy to one of the most beloved and respected captains in Canadiens history.Beliveau, who died Dec. 2 at 83, was more than an exceptional player who led Montreal to 10 Stanley Cups in a 20-year career from 1950 to 1971, and earned another seven as an administrator. No one has their name on the Cup more than Beliveau.Mostly, he is remembered as the ideal team captain and a man who carried himself with class and graciousness in everything he did.Cournoyer was among five speakers along with Dickie Moore, Serge Savard, Ken Dryden and team owner and president Geoff Molson at an emotional funeral Wednesday at Mary Queen of the World cathedral.The pews were packed with past and current players as well as other celebrities and a few hundred fans who braved a blizzard to pay their respects.NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was there, as was Pittsburgh Penguins owner and former star player Mario Lemieux. Other former stars attending included Luc Robitaille, Gilbert Perreault, Johnny Bower, Darryl Sittler and Brendan Shanahan, the current president of the Toronto Maple Leafs.Moore, Savard, Dryden, Cournoyer and Frank Mahovlich were among dozens of Canadiens alumni on hand, along with all of the current teams players and coaches. Cournoyer and Savard were pallbearers along with ex-Canadiens Phil Goyette, Guy Lafleur, Robert Rousseau and Jean-Guy Talbot.The sombre occasion also drew Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Gov. Gen. David Johnston, former prime ministers Jean Chretien and Brian Mulroney, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard and ex-Quebec premiers Jean Charest, Bernard Landry and Lucien Bouchard. Montreal mayor Denis Coderre and federal opposition leaders Justin Trudeau of the Liberals and Thomas Mulcair of the NDP also attended.Harper described Beliveau as someone who transcended his sport.Weve obviously lost a great citizen, somebody who was admired and respected by everybody everywhere in the country, he said on his way into the service. I certainly have admired Mr. Beliveau since I was a young boy.He was an individual who was great in his sport but ultimately even greater than his sport.The pallbearers wheeled in the coffin draped in Canadiens red, white and blue ahead of Beliveaus widow Elise, his daughter Helene, granddaughters Magalie and Mylene and other family members.Then came a companys worth of alumni, followed by the current team, who are well aware of the Beliveau aura.Defenceman P.K. Subban said what was most impressive was seeing all the faces from the world of hockey, and from the world of politics.It shows you how big of a deal it is, he said. A lot of people on the current team, we werent able to watch Jean Beliveau play, but we definitely know about the legend and its our job to make sure that what hes accomplished and what hes built here in Montreal lives on.There has been talk of renamming the Conn Smythe Trophy after Beliveau, the first player to win the award for the most valuable player in the NHL playoffs. Yovani Gallardo Jersey. ettman said the league may eventually consider it or some other honour.Weve been focused more on his passing and that loss and celebrating his life and I know at the appropriate time well focus on what is a remembrance fitting for someone like Jean Beliveau, Bettman said. Hes going to be terribly missed.Cournoyer may have been the most emotional of the speakers at the service as he spoke of joining the Canadiens in the 1960s when Beliveau was in his 10-year run as captain. They had dressing room stalls next to each other, and were roommates on road trips.Given the age difference between us, we developed almost a father-son relationship, Cournoyer said.Moore remembered Beliveau as a great man.I was lucky to have been with Jean for many glorious years with the Canadiens, lucky to share amazing moments together, lucky to have him as a friend, said Moore.Would you rather be good or lucky? I was lucky. He was good, he said to laughs from the congregation.Dryden, a rookie in Beliveaus last season, said: He treated everyone with respect. He said the right things and in the right way, in French and in English, because thats what he believed and thats what he was.This is not the time to say goodbye. This is the time to say thank you.Savard recalled how happy he was to end up a teammate of his boyhood idol.Jean was a great leader, said Savard, who was general manager for two Stanley Cups after his playing days. We would look toward him when times were difficult.After just a few (NHL) seasons, his peers named him captain. Surprised and shaken up, he went to see Mr. (Frank) Selke to turn down the captaincy. Mr. Selke told him he was the choice of the players and to return to the dressing room to fulfil his role as leader.And he did that throughout his career, winning 10 Stanley Cups and helping us be better players and better people, on and off the ice. You couldnt disappoint such a role model.The giant Canadiens flag that draped Beliveaus coffin was folded carefully and given to Elise, who has become a celebrity herself as she dealt with the public with class and remarkable strength since her husbands death.In two days of public visitations at the Bell Centre this week, she greeted and accepted condolences from the thousands of fans who streamed in.Her delight at the Canadiens 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night seemed to break the tension for a while. She looked calm and at peace at the funeral mass.A few hundred seats were reserved for fans on a first come, first served basis. Those who couldnt get inside the church were able to watch the ceremony on giant screens outside.Montreal police, who have been wearing camouflage pants and red ballcaps in recent months to protest pension plan reforms, wore their regulation uniforms out of respect for Beliveau, who entered the Hockey Hall of Fame the year after his retirement in 1971.He was a special man, Molson said in his eulogy. A Jean Beliveau like no other.
