I had to adapt my game and funnily enough, our backs coach there worked with Dave over in Europe, so a lot of the things that weve worked on at Suntory are similar to what the Wallaby boys are doing here. Skill sets are something that Ive always wanted to improve and I think just getting the hunger to continue that way. Im getting older so the bodys not going to be the same as I keep getting older, so Ive got to adapt the way I play. Such is Kerevis form that there are now suggestions hes the worlds premier midfielder. Its a tag that shows the wisdom of Wallabies coach Dave Rennies decision to bring Kerevi back into Australias squad after a two-year absence following his decision to play his club rugby in Japan for Suntory Sungoliath. But its also a tag that doesnt sit comfortably with Kerevi. Im definitely not the worst person at the moment, said Kerevi, who turned 28 on Monday. I think there are a lot of better players out there, (but) I BIRTHDAY boy Samu Kerevi has shut down suggestions hes the worlds best centre, but the former Queensland Reds captain admits hes better equipped for his second coming as a Wallaby. Kerevi was again superb in Australias 27-8 weekend win over Argentina in Townsville. The victory was the Wallabies third successive Rugby Championship win, with Kerevis powerful running and ball skills key factors in Australias return to form after three straight losses to the All Blacks. Kerevi plays down praise MARCO MONTEVERDE ARSENAL ON THE WAY UP ARSENAL struck three times inside 35 minutes to beat Tottenham 3-1 and move above their north London rivals in the Premier League table. Just three weeks ago Spurs sat top and Arsenal bottom after their worst start to a league season for 67 years. However, the Gunners have been rejuvenated by six summer signings and the return to fitness of a number of key players. Emile Smith Rowe opened the floodgates by taking advantage of some awful Tottenham defending on 12 minutes. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then rounded off a brilliant team move before Bukayo Saka rolled home the third 11 minutes before halftime. Son Heung-min pulled a goal back for the visitors 11 minutes from time.
