Wales peace deal signed

first_img TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Such has been the acrimony in between the WRU and RRW (Regional Rugby Wales) that there was no joint press conference for the cameras as both sides went their separate ways after signing the Rugby Services Agreement (RSA) which laid out a £60m six-year agreement that would take Welsh rugby into the next decade.What was left, in the wake of an affair that has tested the patience of every Welsh rugby fan, was at least – on the face of it – marked progress.For the avoidance of doubt, the disagreement has always been about money, or the lack of it. The regions felt they were being unfairly starved of the funds that would enable them to compete with English and Irish clubs, while the union was adamant they would not be made bankrupt by the demands of the regions. The regions felt increasingly that a salary cap of £3.5m simply did not give them enough to keep hold of their star players when compared to France –  Toulouse have nearing a £28m annual salary – and this only led to steady flow of international players out of Wales.A rare outing together: Roger Lewis sits with the heads of the regionsNow at least, there seems to be more funds on the table with a sweetener of £500,000 per region on signing the RSA and the WRU guaranteeing £8.7m to the four regions. In that sum £2m has been allocated for dual-contracted players and that will be propped up by £1.3m of money from the Regions. Roughly speaking, dual-contracted players could be picking up a cool £330,000 a year, which should at least allow regions to compete with foreign clubs and keep players in Wales.Elsewhere there is further framework in place to ensure the future of the game. The limit on foreign players has been capped at six per regional squad, plus two time-serving players, in effect, player who serving out their three-year residency rule before becoming eligible for Wales.The responsibility for the Academies is passed back from the WRU to the Regions, where they will be given an annual £600,000 to nurture talent.Further details include the WRU having the right to play up to 13 annual internationals, which will add to the coffers, and a 13-day release window to prepare for Autumn Series and Six Nations fixtures.Another interesting development was the reintroduction of the A side to play a fixture, possibly before the start of the Six Nations, while in the shortened format, the RSA guarantees three players from the regions to be available for Wales Sevens selection. Whether this can work remains to be seen, but a similar law has been in place in England and as with the case of Steffon Armitage, enforced, while Australia, New Zealand and South Africa have loosened their rigid stances.The hard work starts now. Relationships need to be nurtured, trust rebuilt and the common aim of strengthening Welsh rugby as a whole put into force. If that happens, maybe, just maybe, Welsh rugby can prosper in the professional age. Sign on the dotted line: Sam Warburton will be free to play rugby again after a peace deal was signed Peace broke out in Wales early yesterday evening after one of the most protracted, tenuous talks in the history of the professional game. The Group Chief Executive of the WRU, Roger Lewis, who has been heavily criticised during the drawn-out process, said: “The National Dual Contracts represented a radical step forward in our mutual aim of retaining Welsh talent here in Wales.”Chairman of Regional Rugby Wales (RRW) Nigel Short commented: “Following long and detailed negotiations, RRW is satisfied that the new agreement with the WRU creates a fair, progressive and credible foundation to protect and support the best interests of Welsh Rugby into the future; with the core objective of delivering a sustainable and competitive professional game in Wales.“The new agreement is a positive step forward for the long-term benefit of Welsh rugby with plenty of hard work still to be done to ensure that the game in Wales prospers, works in partnership and develops at all levels.”What, perhaps, will be most frustrating to Welsh fans is that British and Irish Lions Leigh Halfpenny, Richard Hibbard and Jonathan Davies may still have been playing in Wales had the agreement had been signed earlier. Wales had already lost Lions George North, Mike Phillips, Jamie Roberts, Dan Lydiate and James Hook who had gone in search of stability and increased riches in the Premiership and Top 14. In effect, the horse has already bolted, and the only hope is that the new agreement will, in time, entice stars back to Wales.One facet that will certainly raise eyebrows is the re-emergence of the fabled ‘Gatland’s law’, where players who choose to play outside Wales will not be available for selection, except for certain exceptional cases – this does not affect existing stars abroad but with come into effect once Warren Gatland picks six dual contract players – targeted players are thought to include Alun Wyn Jones, Taulupe Faletau, Gareth Anscombe, Gethin Jenkins, Alex Cuthbert, Scott Williams, Liam Williams, Ken Owens, Dan Biggar – alongside the only centrally contracted player Sam Warburton who controversially signed up in January.last_img read more

Harlequins more than confident in signing of 35-year-old Fijian flyer Vereniki Goneva

first_imgWednesday Jul 3, 2019 Harlequins more than confident in signing of 35-year-old Fijian flyer Vereniki Goneva Harlequins today confirmed that winger Vereniki Goneva will be joining the club from Newcastle Falcons for the 2019/20 season. The Fijian flyer played three seasons at the Falcons, after joining them from Leicester Tigers.ADVERTISEMENTThe prolific try-scorer has played 55 times for Fiji, scoring 20 international tries. In the Premiership he’s averaged a try every other match across his appearances for both Leicester Tigers and Newcastle Falcons.“It’s a real coup for us to secure the signing of Niki to bolster our squad from next season,” said Head of Rugby Paul Gustard of the now 35-year-old.“With Tim’s [Visser] retirement at the end of last season we have been looking to bring in quality to supplement our very exciting young wingers in Gabs and Cadan, and there is no doubt Niki is real quality. Pundits and media alike have commented on his age consistently over the last few years but it is of no concern to me for I have seen one of his passports and it said he was only 28 so we are happy!“His mixture of strength and speed, coupled with his experience and his continued determination and desire to succeed will complement the strengths of our current players. He has been a success wherever he has been because he is talented and competitive but primarily because he is positive and a good human being. We welcome him and his partner Raijeli to the Club.”Harlequins’ amusing signing announcement featured current winger Gabriel IbitoyeADVERTISEMENTAble to play both wing and centre, the 6’2″, 102kg Goneva said that he’s looking forward to playing for his Dad’s favourite team.“After playing in the Premiership for the last six years I am really excited to be joining Quins, whom I have always admired as one of the big English clubs.“They were the first Club that I had a jersey for as my Dad bought me one when I was very little because it is his favourite team, and so I have always had an affinity for them. I cannot wait to join up with my new teammates and look forward to pulling on that famous quartered jersey and running out at The Stoop next season.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Trustees hear about budget, tax situation

first_img Twitter Trustees hear about budget, tax situation Facebook Twitter Ector County Independent School District is estimating an increase in tax collections and state foundation funding totaling about $14.2 million for 2018-19.During the past three years, Chief Financial Officer David Harwell said the district has seen total budget reductions and cost avoidance of $30,840,000.ECISD estimates that it will see an increase in tax collections of about $8 million and state foundation funding of $6.2 million.No total estimate of the 2018-19 budget was presented.However, the $14.2 million projected increase is less than half of the past cuts.Much of it will be taken up by increases in:Funding the Ector Middle School initiative of $3.7 million. This is related to making Ector an in-district charter school run by the Ector Success Academy Network.An increase in campus student allotments to pre-reduction levels of $2.39 million.An increase in estimated Teacher Retirement System benefit costs of $1.195 million.An increase in property insurance premiums of $705,000.An increase in estimated health insurance and workers’ compensation costs of $715,000.Increased operational needs of $534,000.Trustees also discussed asking for an 8-cent tax rate election which would yield $11,430,000 in revenue — $9,842,000 in local tax revenue and $1,588,000 in additional state funding — next year. If it was approved by voters, it would mean an increase of approximately $89 per year for the average home in Ector County. The average home price being $170,587.Estimated appraised property values in ECISD are projected to increase 4 percent this year, which means an increase in taxes for property owners.Harwell said the 4 percent increase in values means a $64 increase in taxes for the average homeowner with the average home value being $170,587.With a proposed 8 cent tax ratification election, Harwell said the increase on the average home value would be $89 per year.Harwell reviewed the tax rate and budget for 2018-19 during a work study session Tuesday.Superintendent Tom Crowe said that as appraised values go up, state funding decreases and the district has a more challenging population — more economically disadvantaged students, more at risk students and more English language learners, among others.“Without a TRE, we’re going to get further in the hole,” Crowe said.Every year, Crowe said services to students and classroom supplies are cut. He added that teachers have had to buy their own supplies, such as paper.Crowe said no one has gotten a raise the last two years, except for teacher step increases and he’s seeing people leave as a result.He said the district is $16 million down from where it was two years ago and ECISD spends less per pupil than its peer districts.Board Vice President Doyle Woodall, who was substituting as president because Carol Gregg had to attend an Odessa City Council meeting, said taxpayers need to know how much “we’re getting screwed over by unfunded mandates from the state.”Harwell said one example was transportation which costs $16 million, but ECISD gets $2 million from the state.Harwell added that there is only one way to get more money and that’s through more students attending ECISD.But Crowe said the district still has to educate those students, which those funds go back into.In other business, the board heard presentations on:The ACCESS Program, a three-pronged model targeting ECISD middle schools. Presenters were Star Tech Group representatives Ravi Shakamuri and Regunath Subramanian.Area hospitals and health care professionals along with community and chamber of commerce members would partner with each of the middle schools to focus on career, education and health initiatives.It would involve aligning Medical Center Health System, Odessa Regional Medical Center and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Family and Community Medicine to make an impact on the education, career and health experience of ECISD students.The material said ACCESS institutions would work with campus specific initiatives to strengthen a student’s engagement and learning abilities that connect to the district, teachers, counselors and parent priorities.Medical Center would work with Bonham and Bowie students; Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center with Wilson & Young and Ector; and Odessa Regional Medical Center with Nimitz and Crockett, the material said.StarTech Group and StarCare Health Services will be collaborating on the initiative.The program also includes Odessa Chamber of Commerce contacts for student shadowing and eventually internships at the high school level. Shakamuri said there would be no cost to the school district and he believes a two-year trial would allow enough time to measure results and gauge success, the board recap said.Trustees heard the annual report from the Student Health Advisory Council and its recommendations.They included: continuing work on a pilot Campus SHAC program to address school-specific issues; continue the award winning Human Growth & Development program (given a statewide award by the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy last month); see recess before lunch becoming a standard practice in ECISD schools; continue the expansion of Communities in Schools in middle schools; and training for school staff on trauma informed care for students struggling to control their emotions, and safe school environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, the recap said.The board heard a request from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin to allow the university to set up a VIP tent inside Ratliff Stadium where alcohol will be served to a limited number of major donors at UTPB home football games.UTPB officials said it will be licensed and regulated as legally required, and participants will be closely monitored, the recap said.Trustees reviewed a memorandum of understanding with the Intercultural Development Research Association for the Coca-Cola Valued Youth Program.The program is a student-to-student tutoring program serving at-risk students.Odessa High School students in the program travel to San Jacinto Elementary and Sam Houston Elementary to work with and mentor younger kids. This year, about 70 OHS students were part of the program and it received national attention last December when IDRA referred to Odessa High as its site of the year, the recap said.
