Episode 6: Michael Cheika former Wallabies coach Joins John Gibson

Talking Real Estate with John Gibson features a comprehensive keep it simple market wrap as property continues to be the talk of the town. Speaking of towns, Gibson has been road tripping, getting a hands-on feel to the market on the North Coast of NSW with stopovers in Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour and Crescent Head – a fact finding trip. Nice work if you can find it! Gibson talks about the pros and pitfalls when buying residential or commercial. We look at the hard-hit retail sector, and what lies ahead for our property markets and the Australian economy.

Our special guest needs no tail of the tape introduction, enter Michael Cheika. A self-made man, grew up in Coogee and what a journey so far for this former Marcellin Brothers Randwick student. From a humble family property, but a start all the same, Cheika is ever grateful to his family. As a player, the Number 8 played Under 21s for Australia, more than 300 games for The Galloping Greens and Seven Chute Shields along the way… do you mind! His playing and coaching record is a passport to the world, the envy of any seasoned traveller.

An entrepreneur of types, his date with the fashion industry, enter Collette Dinnigan, is a fantastic yarn. Being Multi lingual, a creative CV and Lebanese friends in retail was key to strategy.
This very proud Australian, of Lebanese decent, is now the coach of the Lebanese Cedars World Cup Rugby League team. We chat about the code transition and his work with The Sydney Roosters. Finally, we ask Cheika “What makes a winner?” And the 2015 World Rugby Coach of the Year leaves us in no doubt as to his unfinished business with Australian Rugby Union.
