England coach Eddie Jones has left JOHN GOLIATH confused and a little disappointed.I was really looking forward to a blockbuster week of banter between Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus and England guru Eddie Jones. A buildup to the World Cup final filled with enough shade throwing to cover ‘Table Top Mountain’.Jones has a reputation of instigating verbal fights and playing mind games with his counterparts in the lead-up to Test matches.He was in fine form before and after their famous semi-final against the All Blacks. ‘No one expects us to win … the pressure is going to chase New Zealand down the street.’ BOOM! The All Blacks ended up playing their worst game of rugby since their 2007 World Cup quarter-final defeat at the hands of France.l thought for sure Jones would lead out with a couple of jabs about the Boks’ ‘ugly’ brand of rugby, how limited they are. Maybe even try to bait Erasmus to come out all guns blazing on Saturday. My money was firmly on ‘Mate, the Boks are almost as boring as Rassie’s hairstyle.’But Jones has so far been very courteous of the Boks and their coach. Annoyingly so.READ: Jones: Rassie is a cunning coach‘Rassie is a cunning coach and has done a great job with the Springboks. We are prepared for the unexpected and they can play different ways. You saw Faf de Klerk doing 15-20 box kicks. Handre Pollard is an excellent kicker of the ball and he was smooth and had a nice touch on the ball.‘They can play differently but we also know they can come through the front door. Not many Springbok teams you play don’t come through the front door, so we will be ready at the front door and have enough cover for the back door if that happens.’No man, Eddie! We wanted some fireworks this week. After all, next week is Guy Fawkes Day. You could have even mentioned Rassie’s obsession with disco lights in Bloemfontein is still the biggest jol that ‘dorpie’ has ever seen.I hope Jones isn’t worried that some of his taunts are going to go over Erasmus’ head just because he grew up in Despatch in the Eastern Cape, where the people only speak English in self-defence. Rassie coached in Ireland, Eddie. If an Afrikaans bra from Despatch can understand what the hell Irish are slurring, he can probably make out your Aussie twang.But maybe Jones feels that Erasmus is smart enough not to fall for all the clever things that comes out of his mouth.Or maybe he is just trying to cozy up to South Africans to get another Super Rugby job after he finishes with England. Or even the Bok job. We all know one of Rassie’s many hats he wears is director of rugby. You never know …Maybe the fact that the Aussie has cooled down his verbal jousting is some sort of mind game of it’s own. But that’s clutching at straws. Or is it? It’s certainly left all of us just a little perplexed. ‘ ‘ Eddie! Where are the mind games, mate?

first_img Email Address* 109 East 79th Street and 1010 Park Avenue (Google Maps)An Upper East Side resident who jotted down the number of a developer after seeing it posted at a construction site has brokered the biggest luxury deal last week in Manhattan.The unnamed buyer and soon-to-be owner of a penthouse at 109 East 79th Street negotiated the deal directly with Cathy Franklin at Corcoran Group, who is handling on-site sales, according to the latest market report from Olshan Realty. The unit was last asking $32.5 million.The contract was one of 27 signed in Manhattan last week for properties asking $4 million or more, suggesting the momentum that started to build at the end of last year might be here to stay.“It’s encouraging signs,” said Donna Olshan, who noted that discounts, low interest rates and news of the Covid-19 vaccine all played a role. “It’s a more optimistic landscape than we’ve seen.”ADVERTISEMENTThe 79th Street building, which is expected to be completed in 2022, was developed by Legion Investment Group’s Victor Sigoura, who previously worked for Naftali Group. The penthouse that went into contract has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and three terraces.As Manhattan’s luxury market slowly finds its footing, trophy properties on the Upper East Side are proving particularly popular. In the last 10 weeks, sponsor units in the neighborhood have topped the list of contracts signed six times.“Everyone was saying they are leaving New York,” said Franklin. “And now they are all coming back.”Read moreHFZ’s Ziel Feldman sells Hamptons home for $50MOne57 condo sells at record 51% lossJordache’s Ralph Nakash buys Rockefeller pad for $9.9M Despite the bump, activity in the luxury market is not even across the board: In the last three weeks, condos have outsold co-ops 43 to 5, Olshan said. In the same period, there were 11 townhouse deals.The second-priciest deal last week was a 9th-floor unit at Extell Development’s 1010 Park Avenue.Purchased by a New York family, the unit was last asking $15.9 million, down from $18 million when it was listed in 2017. It measures 3,881 square feet and includes four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.“There was pent-up demand and there are some very good large properties out there that are selling,” said Hilary Landis of Corcoran Group, who represented the developer with Beth Benalloul.“There’s a pool and only 11 apartments in the building,” she added. “In Covid times, a small boutique building is often more desirable.”Contact Sylvia Varnham O’Regan Full Name*center_img Message* This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

first_imgIt energized the reigning NBA champions.Stephen Curry scored 30 points in 30 minutes, Kevin Durant added 24 and the Warriors rode a big third-quarter run to pull away and beat the Miami Heat 123-95 on Sunday night. Curry and Durant didn’t even play in the fourth quarter, getting more unplanned but deserved time off.“Just needed to get some sun and hit the clubs,” Kerr deadpanned, the sarcasm clear. “That’s what the coaches and I did. We were out all night.”Klay Thompson scored 19 points for the Warriors, who started the second half on an 18-3 run and outscored Miami 37-17 in the third. Golden State’s lead was only two at the half then ballooned to 99-77 going into the fourth.Curry – playing with a sore finger on his shooting hand – had 16 of his points in the first quarter, then 10 more in the third.“Nothing magical or no secret sauce to it,” Curry said. “Just trying to be efficient.”Goran Dragic scored 20 points for the Heat. They led by eight in the early going and 36-33 after the first quarter. The Heat then scored 41 points in the next 24 minutes.“Golden State took it to a different level,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “What I wanted to see was a competitive response.”Starting with a layup by Curry late in the half, Golden State made 10 out of 11 shots in one stretch. Curry had two 3-pointers in that third-quarter barrage, and his driving score pushed the lead out to 80-63.At that point, he had 30 points in the game’s first 28.5 minutes. He didn’t score again, and the Warriors didn’t need much more help anyway.“The first half we competed with them,” Dragic said. “Second half, we didn’t.”Golden State would eventually lead by 33. Miami was outscored by 26 in the second half.
