South Africa head coach Allister Coetzee wants a young and inexperienced Springboks side to play without fear against Wales on Saturday. Jamal Lewis Jersey .Coetzee says he does not believe there is a gamble involved by fielding a team containing just 260 caps, with only 40 of those among a back division that features three Test match debutants.The under-pressure Springboks boss has left out proven match-winners like Bryan Habana and Willie le Roux, with South Africa striving to avoid a record eighth defeat in 2016 as they tackle Wales just seven days after being humbled by Italy.It has been a terrible, tough year. But looking back, it is the right time to go this route and get something out of it, Coetzee said. The large number of players based overseas is a problem for us, and another 50 are leaving at the end of this year.We have to back players at home, and this is an indication, so players will have a look and say they would rather hang around and give themselves another shot at representing the Springboks.If players are based in South Africa, we have control over how they are managed. The overseas policy has not been cast in stone. We are still busy with it, and it will definitely be there in the next month or two.We have picked some exciting youngsters. They have been on tour with us and showing a lot of progress and enthusiasm and excitement. They have to play without fear and enjoy it.I am sure they will be there going forward and right up there in 2019 (World Cup). I feel it is the right time to give them Test match exposure. It is now time to back the youngsters. I do not see it as a gamble, but the right decision for the future of South African rugby. It is a good team.While South Africa will go into the Principality Stadium clash as underdogs, they can at least take comfort from an outstanding record against Wales that has seen them win 28 of the previous 31 fixtures.And while the Italy loss underlined how far South Africa have fallen, Coetzee does not believe there will be any hangover effect shown by the players this weekend.I could see in training on Tuesday that we had moved on, he added. We want to revive everything, and we have good rugby players in this group. They want to score tries and that is how we have prepared.We had opportunities against Italy, but it was almost as if a fear of failure made the players over-think and question whether they were taking the right option, but there is a different mindset this week.It is about achieving trust among each other. They have to go out with belief and perform, sticking to the plan and not trying to force things. Iman Marshall Jersey . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. Matthew Judon Jersey . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. http:///...rsey-large-963d.html . Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- Joey Logano won the Xfinity Series race at Watkins Glen International for the second straight year Saturday, holding off Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski for nearly the entire race.Just as he did a year ago, Logano started from the pole in the Zippo 200 and dominated, leading 67 laps. Keselowski, who started second, was in contention until a broken track bar mount sent him to the pits with six laps to go.It was Loganos 26th win in the series and the first Xfinity triumph for Penske since November, a span of 21 races.Paul Menard was second, followed by Kyle Larson, Daniel Suarez, Trevor Bayne and points leader Elliott Sadler.Kyle Busch challenged for the lead early, but damage to his cars splitter forced him to the pits. He also was involved in a nine-car crash that sent him to the garage.Running second, Busch had to pit during the races first caution for repairs to the splitter, which was damaged running over the tracks new curbing. A nine-car crash in the high-speed esses damaged Buschs No. 18 Toyota even more after the race restarted, sending him to the garage and bringing out a red flag on Lap 19.Ryan Sieg precipitated the pileup, getting into Todd Bodine as the cars snaked uphill into the narrowest section of the track with virtually no visibility ahead.I got sideways. I thought I had it, but it hooked right, said Bodine, who grew up in nearby Chemung, New York, and considers Watkins Glen his home track. It was a hard hit. The car is junk. Its the first time Ive ever wrecked at Watkins Glen. I know these guys want to make a name for themselves. Sometimes, youve got to give. I was in line, and I think Ryan thought he was just going to dive in there.Bodine careenedd sideways into the wall after contact with Blake Koch and cars began bouncing off one another in a chain-reaction crash, also taking out Darrell Wallace Jr. Marshal Yanda Jersey. , J.J. Yeley, Ryan Ellis and Tomy Drissi. Bodine, Drissi and Koch were treated at the infield care center and released.Just bad luck we continue to have, said a dejected Wallace, who is ninth in points. Hopefully we can shake it off. I felt really good where we were at. Just not our day.Keselowski scooted past unscathed on the left side to remain in contention in 10th.By the midpoint of the 82-lap race, Logano, Keselowski and Larson were running 1-2-3, and during a round of pit stops Larson pitted from the lead. He exited pit road just ahead of the Penske cars moments before Erik Jones ran out of gas while running third to bring out another caution.Ty Dillon then inherited the lead but was penalized for a commitment-line violation while heading to the pits.When the race restarted, Larson and Suarez were on the front row but not for long. One lap later the Penske cars were 1-2, with Logano leading the way as it became a two-car race to the finish.Derrike Cope brought out the sixth caution on Lap 60 when he slid into the runoff area in the chicane and the front of his No. 70 Chevrolet exploded. He was not injured, and after exiting the car he was unsure exactly what had happened.Keselowski challenged Logano on the restart and dogged him as the laps wound down, trying to pressure him into a mistake. Logano maintained his slim edge and was home free when his teammate had to pit, winning by 1.5 seconds. ' ' '
