In what will sound alarm bells for NSW fans, all-conquering Queensland skipper Cameron Smith reckons there is no end in sight to his representative career.Smith, 33, had been expected to concentrate solely on NRL duties with Melbourne after the 2018 season.But the veteran hooker has clearly had a rethink after helping usher in the 2017 World Cup draw in Brisbane on Tuesday.Smith guided the Maroons to 10 State of Origin series wins in 11 years in 2016, taking his Queensland tally to a record 39 games.He has played 44 Tests for Australia.And there may be plenty more rep duties to come, judging by a revitalised Smith.I havent really put an end date to any of my representative duties, said Smith.If I am playing well and healthy and the selection committee believe I am the best man for the job I will put my hand up.But Smith reckons next years tournament will be his last World Cup - for now.I think so. I will be getting on a little bit, he laughed.However, Smith added: More than likely this may be my last one.Smith has had a glittering representative career.Yet redemption will motivate Smith ahead of the 2017 World Cup.The last time a World Cup was held in Australia, New Zealand shocked the hosts to claim the 2008 crown in a Brisbane grand final boilover.Eight years later organisers confirmed on Tuesday the 2017 World Cup decider would again be held at Suncorp Stadium.The last time we had a World Cup final wasnt so great, Smith said.So hopefully we get a chance to come back and make amends.Ten-time World Cup champions Australia will play pool games against Wayne Bennetts England in Melbourne, France in Canberra and Lebanon in Sydney before an expected quarter-final in Darwin next year under the newly released draw.Satchel Paige Jersey . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. Jeff Burroughs Jersey . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. http://www.custombravesjersey.com/custom-bob-horner-jersey-large-627z.html . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. Austin Riley Jersey . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. Dansby Swanson Jersey . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The NFL suspended Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson for 10 games for what the players agent tells The Associated Press stems from his client using marijuana to relieve the effects of Crohns disease.The Bills announced the league notified them on Tuesday of Hendersons suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy.Its Hendersons second suspension this year after he served a four-game ban to start the season.Hendersons agent, Brian Fettner, called the leagues decision heartbreaking, and added he cannot appeal the suspension because the NFL doesnt allow an exemption for medical marijuana use.His situation is unique, but the drug policy doesnt line up with the uniqueness. Its disappointing, Fettner said.The reality is, the NFLs position has been if you need medical marijuana then youre too sick to play, he added. But thats just not the case for Seantrel Henderson.Henderson will sit out the final five games of the season, and the suspension will carry on either into the playoffs or next season.Buffalo (6-5) plays at Oakland (9-2) on Sunday.The Bills also made several roster moves by placing defensive tackle Corbin Bryant and receiver Walt Powell on the season-ending injured reserve list. Bryant has missed three games with a shoulder injury, and Powell hurt his left ankle in a 28-21 win against Jacksonville on Sunday.Buffalo filled the two roster spots by promoting defensive tackle Deandre Coleman and receiver Dezmin Lewis from the practice squad.Henderson was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease a year ago and had two operations on his intestines last offseason. Doctors removed a section of diseased tissue in January, and Henderson then had his intestines reattached in April.ddddddddddddeveral studies have found marijuana can be an effective treatment for Crohns. In New York, the states medical marijuana program specifically lists patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease as being potentially eligible to obtain medical marijuana.Henderson previously acknowledged testing positive for the drug at the NFL combine in 2014 and said positive tests led to him being suspended several times in college.His only appearance this season came against Cincinnati on Nov. 20, and he was inactive against Jacksonville last weekend.Henderson was excused from practice last week to attend to the birth of son, Seantrel Jr.Buffalo selected Henderson in the seventh round of the 2014 draft out of the University of Miami. He earned the starting job at right tackle as a rookie and started 26 games before being diagnosed with the disease.Fettner called the NFLs reasoning to ban marijuana murky because it is legal in numerous states across America. He also questioned why the league doesnt consider marijuana to be an effective treatment in certain cases.Theyll give you painkillers by the bottle, which are far, far worse than cannabis, Fettner said. For some reason, the NFL isnt there yet.He said Henderson hasnt given up on continuing his playing career, but acknowledged his client faces a weighty decision.The reality of it is, its a question of personal wealth and pain management, Fettner said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
