WASHINGTON, April 25 (Xinhua) -- Ted Cruz and John Kasich, the two U.S. Republican presidential rivals, announced late Sunday night that they will cede certain states to each other in a bid to keep Donald Trump from garnering enough delegate votes he needs to secure the Republican nomination.


In a pair of unexpected statements, Texan Senator Cruz said he would concentrate his resources in Indiana while Ohio Governor Kasich would put all his effort into Oregon and New Mexico. Both candidates also called on their supporters to follow suit.


Their aim is to stop Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates so the real estate tycoon won't clinch the Republican nomination in a first-ballot victory.


Trump, the controversial billionaire who, to many's surprises, has been leading the race of the Republican presidential nomination, is the only hopeful who can realistically get a first-ballot victory, with Cruz struggling to keep up and Kasich far back in the delegate chase. And the only hope left for Cruz and Kasich is to drag Trump into a second ballot.


"To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico," Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe said in a statement, calling Trump at top of the party ticket "a sure disaster."


"Due to the fact that the Indiana primary is winner-take-all statewide and by congressional district, keeping Trump from winning a plurality in Indiana is critical to keeping him under 1,237 bound delegates before Cleveland. We are very comfortable with our delegate position in Indiana already, and given the current dynamics of the primary there, we will shift our campaign's resources West and give the Cruz campaign a clear path in Indiana," John Weaver, Kasich's chief strategist, said in another statement.


"Donald Trump doesn't have the support of a majority of Republicans -- not even close, but he currently does have almost half the delegates because he's benefited from the existing primary system," Weaver said.


"Our goal is to have an open convention in Cleveland, where we are confident a candidate capable of uniting the Party and winning in November will emerge as the nominee," Weaver was quoted by a TheHill news daily report as saying.


Trump blasted the arrangement shortly after it was announced. On his Twitter, the real estate tycoon said: "Wow, just announced that Lyin' Ted and Kasich are going to collude in order to keep me from getting the Republican nomination. DESPERATION!"


In the latest Indiana polling carried out by Fox News, Trump, having won 845 delegates so far, now holds just an 8-percent lead over the Texan senator who has 559 delegates in his pocket, while Kasich sits far behind.

CANBERRA Alejandro Bedoya USA Jersey , Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Australian football club Essendon, which competes in the elite Australian Football League (AFL), was informed on Tuesday that 34 of its past and present players have been suspended from the entire 2016 season for illegal doping.


The unprecedented decision has been described as the most ""devastating"" for Australian sport USA World Cup Jerseys , after the players were found guilty of being ""complicit"" in an illegal supplements program which took place behind closed doors in 2012.


The players were found guilty by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, bringing to a close a three-year drama for the club's players, administrators and staff.


Essendon's chairman Lindsay Tanner confirmed the news in a statement Tuesday morning USA Soccer Jerseys , with most of the 34 players to serve their bans during the 2016 season. The ban ends in November and they will be free to play in 2017.


""Regrettably we can confirm the Court of Arbitration for Sport has found 34 past and present players guilty of committing an anti-doping rule violation,"" Tanner said in the statement.


""As a result, the players - including 12 currently listed with Essendon - have been suspended for the 2016 season. The club is currently digesting the decision and we will provide a further update later today.""


The court decision was released in a statement Walker Zimmerman World Cup Jersey , and confirmed there was ""comfortable satisfaction that Clause 11.2 of the 2010 AFL Doping Code (use of a prohibited substance) has been violated and found by a majority that all players were significantly at fault.""


Of the 34 players originally part of the dubious supplements program, just 12 remain at Essendon, including its captain Tim Ream World Cup Jersey , vice-captain and a number of other senior players, while the Port Adelaide Football Club, St Kilda Football Club Tim Howard World Cup Jersey , Melbourne Football Club and Western Bulldogs Football Club have all traded for players that were on Essendon's 2012 list in the years following.


The Bombers will now be forced to select a team from a smaller pool of players, with only players traded in and drafted after 2012 available for selection.


The AFL now faces the problem of diminished crowd figures, television ratings and interest in the sport Sebastian Lletget World Cup Jersey , with Essendon being so weakened and, on the surface, uncompetitive.


Meanwhile Sacha Kljestan World Cup Jersey , Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) CEO Ben McDevitt labeled the situation as the most ""devastating self-inflicted injury by a sporting club in Australian history.""


""There were very little grounds for the players to claim they were at no significant fault,"" McDevitt said in a statement on Tuesday.


""The players had received anti-doping education through the AFL and ASADA, and were well aware that they are personally responsible for all substances that entered their body.


""Unfortunately Paul Arriola World Cup Jersey , despite their education, they agreed to be injected with a number of substances they had little knowledge of, made no inquiries about the substance and kept the injections from their team doctor and ASADA.""
