Orianna Sandstone Point sales manager Karen Lombe said in response to demand the Orianna Resort Group was launching a series of newly designed homes with double lock up garages.“We understand our clients may be downsizing from their four-bedroom family home on 800sq m blocks, but not from life,” Ms Lombe said.“They still have hobbies, a second car or even a motorbike and want the option of a double garage.”Ms Lombe said the benefit of living in a lifestyle resort like Orianna was that it gave greater flexibility to its residents.
LONDON (Reuters) – The use of the Video Assisted Referee (VAR) in the Premier League has been vindicated despite several controversial decisions and criticism from fans and pundits, the system’s chief Neil Swarbrick said on Monday.Speaking to the media after the latest round of matches in which Sheffield United had a goal disallowed for offside against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City were denied a penalty for handball against Liverpool, Swarbrick defended the technology.“We are in the infancy with VAR, 12 match weeks into the Premier League season, and you need to give us time to operate and utilise it,” he told Sky Sports. “It is working as we wanted. It’s taken quite a few years for other competitions or sports – the likes of cricket and rugby union – to get to where they are today regarding technology. It doesn’t happen overnight.”VAR was introduced in the Premier League this season after trials in the League Cup and FA Cup. Asked by the BBC how he would rate the use of VAR on a scale of one to 10, Swarbrick said: “I’d give us around about seven-ish. We have more decisions correct with VAR than without it.“If the mark now is seven – early days – in two years’ time I’m hoping for maybe an eight and a half or nine. “We are open to evolving with this – it’s not a case of we’re not budging. We will listen to feedback and where we can improve things, we will do.” Some pundits were less enthralled with the system which has also infuriated fans around the world, mostly for decision-making delays which take up to several minutes.Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton was one of the system’s harshest critics. “Seven out of 10? Did he really say that with a straight face? Come on, are you serious?” Sutton told the BBC.“There have been so many high-profile, horrific mistakes. They’ve got too much wrong. I wanted VAR to work, I backed VAR, but they are making such a mess of it.”Former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson also pulled no punches in criticising VAR.“It’s been a bit of a disaster,” he said. It’s still a matter of opinion because it doesn’t clear up a clear and obvious error, It’s just someone else’s opinion. “It’s been a complete mess from day one and it’s caused more problems than it’s worth.”
Jack Wilshere pledged to score more goals for England after breaking his international duck with a stunning brace that helped the Three Lions to a 3-2 victory over Slovenia in Ljubljana.The hosts took the lead against the run of play through Milivoje Novakovic, but the Arsenal midfielder’s quick-fire brace put England ahead halfway through the second half.Nejc Pecnik looked to have earned the Slovenians a draw but Wayne Rooney grabbed a late winner, ensuring England maintained their 100 per cent Euro 2016 qualifying record in Group E.Wilshere had previously gone 28 international appearances without finding the net, but after his two brilliant strikes, the 23-year-old clearly had a taste for goals and promised England fans more would be on the horizon.“Obviously it’s nice to get a first couple of goals for England. It’s been a long time coming and I had chances in previous games,” said the midfielder.“Usually in that area for Arsenal we play a bit more but the first one came, I hit it and it went in.“I want to add more goals. Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes; they all scored for England and I want that.” 1 Jack Wilshere
