NRL coronavirus: Departing South Sydney boss Shane Richardson calls for rugby league ‘greed’ to stop

  NRL coronavirus: Departing South Sydney boss Shane Richardson calls for rugby league ‘greed’ to stop Richardson on Thursday resigned from his lucrative position to ease the pressure on South Sydney amid the coronavirus threat.Richardson stunned the NRL community on Thursday when he confirmed his resignation as the Rabbitohs’ general manager of football.

The Second Test in the Indian cricket team's tour of Australia for the 2007–08 summer was a controversial Test cricket match played over five days at the Sydney Cricket Ground from 2 to 6 January 2008. Australia won the match by 122 runs with minutes to spare at the end of the fifth day.

Southern Sydney has been identified by the FFA as a possible site for future expansion. In spite of the unsuccessful New Zealand Knights, New Zealand's current club, Wellington Phoenix has been relatively successful and the possibility of a second New Zealand team in the future has been raised

Sydney FC coach Steve Corica says his players are fidgety about the future despite the Sky Blues being one of the few A-League clubs not to stand down personnel.

At least six of 11 clubs have stood down players and staff after the competition was postponed on March 24, with another assessment to be made on April 22.

Sydney lead the league by eight points and Corica says it would be devastating not to finish off the season.

The club's emplyees are on annual leave until the end of April.

"The next decision from the FFA is the 22nd of April so maybe we'll have a better idea then of what's happening and then we'll make strategies after that," Corica said.

'That's a question for Peter': RLPA boss on players taking larger pay cut than NRL executive

  'That's a question for Peter': RLPA boss on players taking larger pay cut than NRL executive Clint Newton has confirmed union members will take a 46 per cent pay cut for the year. The NRL executive gave up about 25 per cent."That's a question for [chairman] Peter [V'landys] and the [ARL] Commission around whether they think it's fair,'' Newton said.

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City, who finished 19 points ahead of second-placed United Mourinho has spent £360m since taking over as Manchester United manager in 2016, but last month said his current side cannot be compared with the title-winning teams under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet admits he is unsure about where the future of out-of-favour Emanuele Giaccherini lies. The Italy international joined Sunderland from Juventus in the summer, but he has failed to live up to his billing, scoring just three times in what has been a disappointing campaign.

"But at the moment obviously it's great that the club is still paying the players and staff."

While players have been given a training program which includes running, weights and core work, Corica has been checking in with them, recognising their mental health is just as important.

"We can always make the physical side up when we get back to training. That's quite easy," he said.

"It's more the mental side of things, just to make sure that the boys are all okay and their families are doing okay.

"Obviously not doing anything it's stressful times as well because they see a lot of the other clubs staff have been stood down ... and obviously it makes them a little bit fidgety as well, which is not great."

Corica has some idea of what less fortunate clubs are enduring following an A-League coaches hook-up last week.

"That was a good thing to know exactly how they are feeling as well and what their club is doing," he said.

"I think everyone is much the same, a little bit unsure what's going to happen next season and when we're going to be back."

Sydney probably need only a handful of points from six more games to clinch the Premiers Plate.

"They are trying to come back and finish the (2019-20) A-League off," Corica said.

"So at this stage that's all were thinking of is to finish the league off and win it correctly and win it the best way we can.
