    Australia back-rower Boyd Cordner is excited about the prospect of taking on Englands giant forwards in Sundays crucial Four Nations encounter at Londons Olympic Stadium (0100 Monday AEDT). Keith Hernandez Jersey .England must win the game to have any chance of securing a spot in the final at Anfield on November 20 with the Kangaroos also needing a victory to rubber stamp their place in the decider.Aside from outstanding Warrington front-rower Chris Hill, all of the English forwards have NRL experience, headlined by the three Burgess brothers and Canterbury skipper James Graham.Canberra duo Josh Hodgson and Elliott Whitehead and recently-departed St George Illawarra forward Mike Cooper will also play and back-rower Cordner said he has huge admiration and respect for the English big men.Any side coached by Wayne Bennett is a tough team and were going to have to prepare our best and play our best footy as well, Cordner said.Theyre captained by Sam Burgess who I think is one of the best players in the game and with him in their forward pack leading the way its going to be a tough challenge.When the three of the Burgesses are on at the same time its hard because they are big guys and they are hard to bring down.But its something we are just going to have to deal with.England lost their first match to New Zealand by a point and were less than convincing in a scratchy win against Scotland.However, Cordner is expecting the hosts to be much-improved in front of whats expected to be a crowd of around 40,000.They have to win and we dont want to lose one, he said.They have some big boys and we have to slow down their middle and then hopefully shut down their strike out wide.Most of the squad flew out to Barcelona on Sunday after the win against New Zealand for a short break and Cordner said it had been a welcome distraction on a long tour.It was good, we had a few days off and went sightseeing, he said.We saw the city a bit. Its good to do that kind of stuff and have a few days off to freshen up and get ready for this weeks game. Willie McGee Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Jedd Gyorko Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. .S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke says Marouane Fellaini must prove he is good enough to play for the club. The midfielder has been criticised for a number of his recent performances, with his substitution during last weekends FA Cup match against West Ham being cheered by sections of the Old Trafford fans.He then courted further controversy during Thursdays Europa League 1-1 draw with Liverpool when appearing to elbow Roberto Firmino, resulting in a only yellow card from the referee. Ahead of Sundays Manchester derby Yorke, who played almost 100 times for United between 1998 and 2002, is challenging Fellaini to repay the faith which prompted the club to pay over £27m for his services in September 2013. It hasnt quite happened. The critics are still out, theres still uncertainty on whether he passes the test of being a Manchester United player. Dwight Yorke Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Yorke said: He certainly came with a big price tag. He was outstanding at Everton, and since he has come to Manchester United he has struggled and hasnt lived up to expectation.We know he is a very good player, but one thing when you come to United is you have to go from being a good player and go on further - you need to bring something totally different to the team.We expected that from Fellaini, but it hasnt quite happened. The critics are still out, theres still uncertainty on whether he passes the test of being a Manchester United player. Fellaini appeared to elbow Liverpools Roberto Frimino during Thursdays Europa League clash Yorke, who won three Premier League titles during his time at the club, believes Sundays match gives his old club the perfect opportunity to get their disappointing season back on track, following their European elimination. Bob Gibson Jersey. he players will be down in the dumps in a big way. Itll be back to the drawing board, and the players need to pick themselves up, added Yorke.The players dont need any introduction to the game - they need to finish on some sort of credibility this season and this is a perfect game to lift the spirit back in the Manchester United camp.Yorke also believes assistant manager Ryan Giggs should be handed the reins at Old Trafford should manager Louis van Gaal leave the club.It hasnt quite happened for Louis van Gaal, hell be bitterly disappointed in where Manchester United are in the league and in Europe, and whether that continues next season, only time will tell, he added.I believe Ryan Giggs should be the next manager of Manchester United after Van Gaals contract ends. He has a little bit of experience under David Moyes, he has played under the best manager to manage in the Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson,  and hes been at the club nearly 30 years.When you look at the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Luis Enrique, those guys have not had a great deal of experience - they were in a similar position as Giggs.
