A common indicator of a strong real estate market is a region’s capital growth, and among the four main local government areas outside Cairns — Douglas, Mareeba, Tablelands and Cassowary Coast — there is one clear winner, according to data.

Why I accepted Super Eagles job despite pay cut — Rohr

first_imgGernot Rohr has explained that the current global economic meltdown forced him accept pay cut in his new contract as the Super Eagles coach.Rohr’s current contract runs out at the end of June and both parties are keen to continue their working relationship, which started in 2016. “I never talk about my contract in public, as you know,” he told ESPN. “But I heard like everybody what was said by President [Amaju] Pinnick, that I have to accept to be paid in naira, and I have to be resident in Nigeria.“I agree to these two things, and even I agree to have a lower salary.“I am not doing my job for money.“I am doing my job because I like it.“Because we have built a team like you know, and money is not the most important. “But I also have to look after my assistants.“I accept because I think that my mission in Nigeria is not finished yet, and I know very well my players.“I know very well the officials.“We are now just like a family, and I think it is good to continue, especially in this period now where it is difficult to change, to travel, to see new people.”Rohr’s answer to the proposal goes with amendments, and he awaits the response of the Nigeria Football Federation to it. While he waits, the 66-year-old said he has two job offers he has not replied to, pending the final draft of his Nigeria contract.He said: “If the answer I give with some little changes in my contract is positive, I will continue.“If not, I have to see what they give me because I have still the requests from two other federations.“I received it – they are waiting for my answer – but I will take my time to give the NFF to make the final draft before I answer them.”RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians With football activities ground to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, Fifa has been helping federations and clubs with their financial support, donating $150 million as the first step of a relief plan to help member associations.Rohr, on his part, confirmed slashing his salary for three months as support for the NFF during this period.“Of course, everybody at the moment has an obligation to understand that there are no matches,” he said.“Clubs and federations have problems with money, even if they have assistance from Fifa or Uefa, but everybody has to be ready to make sacrifices.“So I already told NFF that in the months from April to June, we are agreed to cut our salaries, which is also a sign of solidarity.”Tags: CoachCOVID-19Gernot RohrGlobal EconomySalary cutSuper Eagleslast_img read more

Pardew dismisses Rooney claims

first_img A report on the Sports Direct news website, which is linked to club owner Mike Ashley’s business, this week claimed preliminary talks had already taken place with the 27-year-old’s future at Manchester United uncertain after he handed in a transfer request. The story was quickly retracted and Pardew is not expecting the club to renew its interest in Rooney after making a failed £25million bid for him when he was a teenager. Pardew said: “When Demba [Ba] went in January and we didn’t secure [Loic] Remy, it was obvious that we were going to need to bring in a striker or two in this summer window, and hopefully we can.” He added: “But Rooney won’t be one of them, 100 per cent, I can assure you.” Pardew knows the inevitable inquest is unlikely to be pleasant after a campaign of serious under-achievement for which blame will be apportioned accordingly, but asked what his message to Ashley would be, he was swift to respond. He said: “My message is purely that we need to just find some round pegs for a couple of round holes that we need to fill in this team. “If we get that right, I think we will be okay. But I do think we need to add a little bit more experience of the level we are at. “We have got some fantastic players here. We haven’t had the consistency this year and the continuity that we had the year before. “But without the Europa League next year, we will and if you look at our squad, we have still got some very, very good players and if we get the recruitment right, then we could be a force next year.” Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has laughed off claims that he will try to sign England striker Wayne Rooney this summer.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Shaw sees similarities in captains

first_imgFormer England lock Simon Shaw detects similarities in the leadership of Chris Robshaw and Paul O’Connell as the rival captains prepare to collide in Dublin on Sunday. The Aviva Stadium will host the title showdown between the only two remaining unbeaten teams in the RBS 6 Nations, with bookmakers viewing Ireland as marginal favourites. Even at 35, O’Connell remains the reigning champions’ heartbeat and Shaw is an admirer having played against the Irish talisman and under him over two brutal Tests for the 2009 Lions. Shaw, who won 71 England caps from 1996 to 2011 and played in the Grand Slam-denying 24-8 rout in Dublin four years ago, believes the key to success on Sunday will be how successfully the early Irish onslaught is weathered. “The game will be won up-front. Ireland will want to impose themselves in the first 20-30 minutes and get points on the board as quickly as possible,” Shaw said. “It’s about staying cool. When we went to Dublin in 2011 far too many people tried to do something different, trying to have an affect on the game on their own. “Ben Youngs had a rough day because he let Ireland get under his skin. He was rattled by the whole occasion. “When the pressure comes on in that first quarter, you must stay cool, but England have already shown that composure against Wales in this competition. “England have shown real steel in this tournament, especially in the pack, but they have also shown what they’re capable of out wide. The title winners will come out of these two teams.” * Simon Shaw was speaking on behalf of QBE, the Business Insurance Specialist, official insurance partner of England Rugby Press Association But Shaw insists Robshaw is building a strong reputation of his own with England under Stuart Lancaster cast in his image. “Paul’s work-rate is absolutely phenomenal,” said Shaw on behalf of QBE, the Business Insurance Specialist. “Paul might not make massive yardage or make the biggest hits, but he’s always there screaming at the scrum-half for ball and that enthusiasm from the captain brings the team through. “Robshaw is similar in that sense for England. He might not say a massive amount nor be a showy player, but he’s one of those players for whom his team-mates would run through a brick wall. “Robshaw had an edgy start as captain three years ago. Early on there were doubts over him not just as a leader, but also over whether he merited the number seven shirt. But he’s proved himself to everyone. “In virtually every game he’s top of the stats. He’s showing the steely determination and work ethic that runs through the side as a whole and it’s because of him that those strengths have become a characteristic of this England team. “Captaincy is not necessarily what you say or rousing speeches, it’s what you do on the pitch and the respect you have from your peers. “Paul O’Connell combines the two very well because he is a fine speaker but also a leader of men in terms of what he does on the pitch. Robshaw is the type of captain who leads the way.” last_img read more
