Rory Best has been hailed as one of Irelands toughest ever Test competitors as the captain closes in on 100 caps.Ulster rugby director Les Kiss coached Best with Ireland for six years, and ranks the gritty hooker among the most durable stars of the international arena.Best will draw level on 98 appearances with Peter Stringer as Irelands fifth most-capped player should he start Saturdays clash with New Zealand in Chicago as expected.The 34-year-old can pass 100 caps this November, leaving former Ireland defence coach Kiss to laud the relentless drive that still underpins Bests career.To have passed 90 caps is special for the uncompromising way he plays the game, so to reach 100 caps would be some occasion too, Kiss told Press Association Sport.Hes had his injuries in his time, but hes robust, resilient and just keeps coming, keeps working hard to improve each year.Hes got all the qualities that youd expect from someone capable of reaching 100 caps.I find him one of the toughest players whos ever been up there.Wed love to see him hit the 100-cap milestone in the autumn, because hed be hugely deserving of that.Best has captained Ireland since Paul OConnells injury-enforced retirement after the World Cup in 2015.The Ulster hooker will lead Joe Schmidts men once more this autumn, with two matches in three weeks against the all-conquering All Blacks and other clashes against Canada and Australia.Ulster boss Kiss expects Best to inspire a stirring performance in Saturdays daunting Soldier Field encounter with a New Zealand side aiming to extend their record winning streak to 19 matches.The former Ireland coach drew on Bests remarkable injury recovery during the 2011 World Cup to underscore the hookers obdurate streak.Best was all-but written off for Irelands quarterfinal against Wales after suffering a shoulder problem in the 36-3 pool match victory over Italy.But Kiss explained how the Ulster front-rowers sheer willpower dragged him through an unforgiving contact session to prove his fitness.At the 2011 World Cup I remember taking him for a very rigorous contact session the day before the game to prove his fitness, said Kiss, of Bests recovery for Irelands eventual 22-10 defeat to the Welsh.At the beginning of the week he had no chance of making the game, but that day he just ripped into it, and he went out and played accordingly.And that type of mental toughness he has is one of the critical components that he offers all the time.As a leader he just demands that you turn up and aim up, and he can back it up.Its important that you can back it up when you say it, and hes one who can.You just look at what he does for any team he plays for, hes one of the most dogged, toughest guys you can play against.Hes a leader by example, theres not always too many words, but when the words are there, they are strong, poignant and they mean something. jerseys from china .

RALEIGH, N.C. -- A receiver rushed for a touchdown. A running back threw for a score. Boston College tried anything and everything to finally end its long ACC losing streak.It worked.Running back Davon Jones threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Tommy Sweeney on a trick play with 4:43 left, and BC earned its first Atlantic Coast Conference victory since 2014 by beating North Carolina State 21-14 on Saturday.Coach Steve Addazio said he told them (at halftime) on both sides of the ball, were going after them with everything weve got.Weve all got each others back, he added. Lets just let it hang out. Lets roll. Were rolling. ... We went on the offensive and rolled it out there.Receiver Jeff Smith rushed 60 yards for a touchdown for BCs first touchdown and Patrick Towles was 18 of 33 for 204 yards to help the Eagles (4-4, 1-4) snap a 12-game league losing streak and win a conference game for the first time since defeating Syracuse 23 months ago.I know its one game ... but we took a step, Addazio said. An important step.Whats statistically the worst offense in the ACC outgained N.C. State 386-338, held a 168-31 advantage in yards rushing and used some trickery to take the lead for good.Towles took a shotgun snap and handed off to Jones, who headed toward the right side before stopping and tossing to Sweeney. Towles then hit Sweeney for the 2-point conversion that made it a seven-point game.The Wolfpack had a first-and-goal at the BC 2 before Kamrin Moore picked off Ryan Finleys fade pass to Stephen Louis in the end zone with 1:35 to play and the Eagles ran out the clock.Finley finished with a career-best 307 yards passing with two touchdowns -- a 79-yard catch-and-run to BraLon Cherry, and a 23-yard score to Kelvin Harmon -- but threw two interceptions for N.C. State (4-4, 1-3), which has lost three straight.There were plays that we could have made but didnt. There were calls that we could have done better and didnt, Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said.THE TAKEAWAYBoston College: The streak is over. The Eagles kept finding ways to lose conference gamees, following up last years 0-for-the-ACC with four league losses this year -- two by blowout, two much closer.dddddddddddd This was unquestionably a step forward for a program trying to claw back to relevance in a top-heavy division.Addazio said of the effects of losing on his young team: Its been a haul on them. But itll make us stronger.N.C. State: Theres no sugarcoating this one for the Wolfpack, who looked nothing like the team that came within a missed field goal of upsetting No. 3 Clemson. Instead it felt like a carryover from a 54-13 loss at No. 5 Louisville.Were just letting that (Clemson) game haunt us, defensive end Bradley Chubb said. Everybodys still thinking in the past, not trying to move forward, and weve just got to move forward.We cant let that one game keep beating us, Chubb added. Once we get past that one game, the skys the limit.So now N.C. State will have to pull at least one significant upset to earn bowl eligibility. The Wolfpack still must face No. 12 Florida State, No. 21 North Carolina and a Miami team that earlier this month was in the top 10.KEY STATThe Wolfpack cant be happy about its complete inability to get the ball to its best player. Jaylen Samuels had one catch for eight yards and was targeted just three times.ANOTHER KEY STATN.C. State couldnt get anything going on the ground, finishing with 31 yards rushing a week after setting a season low with 14 yards on the ground against the Cardinals. The Wolfpack didnt crack positive rushing yards in this one until there were about 6 minutes left in the third quarter.UP NEXTBoston College: Plays host to No. 5 Louisville on Saturday.N.C.
