Splash the cash on a hot prospect or reward others who have already proved their worth? Two Aussies take opposite views in this debate from our October 2020 issue LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Should Australian rugby outbid NRL for teenage stars like Joseph Suaalii?PETE FAIRBAIRNSports PR director with ThriveTo be clear, I don’t know Joseph Suaalii. But judging by his highlights and the media reports, he’s an incredibly talented young man with a good head on his shoulders and a supportive family who just want what’s best for him.In this instance, I’m thinking more about what’s best for Australian rugby. And regardless of his talent, I just don’t think it makes sense to be offering big sums of money to an untried player who hasn’t opposed adults yet at a time when the game is financially imperilled.We keep hearing from New Zealand that the depth of talent in Australia isn’t there to compete with our mates across the ditch.However, if you scour the globe you will see more than a half-century of Australian players more than capable of competing at Super Rugby level. In fact, there are more professional Australian rugby players plying their trade overseas than there are here at home!So many players were burnt by the system here. There’s a litany of unheard horror stories, including one club’s Player of the Year being offered a ridiculously low salary because they thought his family circumstances meant he wouldn’t be willing to move cities. But the game appears to finally be on track, ready to stand up for itself and look after its own.Money set aside to coax a schoolboy away from joining rugby league should be spent on retaining blokes who have already done the hard yards here, and/or bringing back players abroad who have shown their capabilities at this level. Let our young players develop as they should – from school footy into elite pathways and clubs, and then professional footy. Ready to cheer him on: Waratahs fans are open to taking Suaalii, who is contracted with the Rabbitohs SAM BRUCERugby writer for ESPN AustraliaAustralian rugby is in need of a hot new talent, someone it can market to the kids who want a Wallabies jersey with their favourite player’s name on the back. And I think, in a few years’ time, that could well be Joseph Suaalii.And the way that Rugby Australia has framed its contract offer to Suaalii, or at least what we can garner from conflicting media reports, could make that possible.Why not sign him on a two-year deal, that includes the Olympics, followed by what will be a new provincial professional competition the year after and then, if his form warrants, Wallabies selection? That would give him a taste of what rugby has to offer, followed by the lure of a Rugby World Cup and British & Irish Lions series.I’ve had the fortune to watch Suaalii play once in each of the past two years and can tell you it is scary how much he moves like Israel Folau. He’s also put on an incredible amount of bulk in the 12 months between each of those two GPS schoolboy rugby matches that I saw.Early baptism: Australia stand-off James O’Connor first played for the Wallabies at just 18 (Getty Images)And coaches who have been involved with Suaalii tell me he is a fantastic young kid. There aren’t too many 17-year-olds who turn up to help junior sides in their spare time, just as Suaalii not too long ago while he was adorned across the back pages in Sydney.He’s not going to win you a Rugby World Cup, but he is definitely an X-factor player that other talented youngsters will want to play with.

Her Yale College Seminar course, “Christian Theology and Harry Potter,” is described as ‘a semester-long seminar offering in which the topics of systematic theology are presented alongside the reading of the Harry Potter books for the purpose of analyzing the extent to which the series espouses a Christian worldview.”Danielle is a member of the General Board of Examining Chaplains for The Episcopal Church. She served on a subcommittee to restructure the exam and chaired the Theory and Practice of Ministry group. She is a member of the Commission on Ministry, Diocese of Connecticut, and a member of The American Academy of Religion.

The Honsinzi house (‘Honsinzi’ is the name of a lotus pond) is a holiday home in Cheongdo-gun, in the southern region of Korea. The place is of profound tranquility where the rich natural scenery reflects in the stilled mirror of the Honsinzi. The requirement was to create a 198 square – meters home to share with family and friends for relaxation, spa and other special events.Save this picture!© Hélène BinetWe have erected two parallel volumes in the heart of the site open to the landscape. The disposition of the two volumes is defined in terms of the views and functions. The front volume is for the public area, containing the living space, dining space and an inner yard opened to the sky. The second volume, more private, has a guest room and two bathrooms on the ground floor, and, a bedroom with a large bath on the upper level.Save this picture!© Hélène BinetThe architecture, and the four surrounding walls, three of which are headed up by blue stones – locally available and sourced material ensuring a visual coherence within the landscape – and the other made of low iron glasses, create four areas, each with its own form and function.Save this picture!© Hélène BinetThrough the transparent walls, the southern area connects the living space to the landscape without any barriers. In the eastern area, there is an entrance that leads throughout the whole site. The western area shelters diverse facilities for living – gas, electricity, water, etc. As the calmest space, the northern court is for the contemplation of the dwellers in a enclosed atmosphere. All these compositions allow varied views into and through the house, enhancing the experiences of the spatial depth while mediating between enclosure and exposureSave this picture!Floor PlanAs the procedures of disposition, the interior spaces are also calibrated to keep a visual spatial expansion. The varied height of the living space, its wooden surfaces, and the white marble on floor have been designed to keep the spatial continuity. The master bedroom and bathroom of the upper level are very important spaces for relaxation, designed by simple geometry using the white materials and wide opening.Save this picture!© Hélène BinetThe inner yard bears distinct qualities and purposes within the environment. When opened, the rotating wall, perpendicular to the surrounding wall plane, provides a magnificent scenery and direct access to the southern court. When closed, it defines the volume enclosed and extends the space retaining the continuity of the surface as much as possibleSave this picture!DetailTo be a radical passive construction, this house of simple structure and high insulation utilizes a number of sustainable measures and was largely completed by a local firm and craftsmen. It has the hybrid skeletal frame of reinforced concrete, wooden beams and studs, filled with glass wool insulation. And we also put the EPS wall panels outside and inside of this skeleton. The facade is clad with the cement boards (1800×400, 10T) and black stones (1200×600, 20T) while the interior surfaces are made of white oak lumber standings with a height of 400mm. The aluminum profile enforces the sense of architectural unity between the interior and exterior sides of the home. The envelope of this super insulated house is detailed to reduce thermal bridging, and the use of high efficiency system window ensures a comfortable living climate.Save this picture!ElevationProject gallerySee allShow lessGiveaway: Introducing the Moleskine Tool BeltArchitecture NewsBan House / Zhang Dongguang + Liu WenjuanSelected Projects Share Houses Save this picture!© Hélène Binet+ 30 Share 2014 Photographs photographs: Hélène BinetPhotographs: Helene Binet CopyHouses•Cheongdo-gun, South Korea Area: 198 m² Area: 198 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: Honsinzi House / SPLK Architects & Partners Construction: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/540862/honsinzi-house-splk-architects-and-partners Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/540862/honsinzi-house-splk-architects-and-partners Clipboard Year: CopyAbout this officeSPLK Architects & PartnersOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCheongdo-gunHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on September 01, 2014Cite: “Honsinzi House / SPLK Architects & Partners” 01 Sep 2014.

Please keep it in a safe place until it is collected. Your enumerator will call again in the 2-3 weeks after census day to collect your form. They will also be happy to assist you if you have had any difficulty in completing the form.
