COVER - POPULAR COMMUNITY EVENT RETURNS Essentially the 2017 One Forty One Plantations Blue Lake Fun Run will be the same as the previous seven. As the old saying goes – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But there are some subtle changes with new naming rights sponsor One Forty One Plantations coming on board this year with organisers also opting for a medallion for each participant, rather than the running singlet of the past couple of years. As has been the case in previous years, organisers are expecting more than 1000 entrants for the December 3 event. November 17 is the closing date for entries to the 2017 fun run, which will again see three distances on offer – 10.4km, 6.8km and 3.2km. The beauty of this popular community event, is it is tailored for the serious runner as well as the weekend walker, with increased numbers of business groups, community organisations and sporting clubs all putting together teams to tackle one of the three courses on offer. With a raft of prizes on offer for schools, organisers

SOUTH EAST PRIMARY SCHOOLS MUSIC FESTIVAL are again encouraging as many schools as possible to enter teams into the 2017 event. As always, interest surrounds whether anyone can beat Thomas Hynes over the 10.4km distance. The Warrnambool teenager set a new record of 34.15, smashing the previous mark, also set by him, by 45 seconds, last year, making it five consecutive titles. Lucindale runner Nikki Smart is the reigning women’s champion over the top distance, while in the 6.8km, it was a case of third time lucky for East Gambier footballer Scott Brooksby.

Finishing third in 2014 and second last year, Brooksby finally got to stand atop the dais with a win. The reigning female champion over the 6.8km course is 2014 winner Caitlin Dyer, who won the 2014 event when she was 10 years old. The 3.2km event was a classic double act with 10 year old Jonty Collins the reigning male champion and mum Rosie, the reigning female champion. Log onto for full details and to reserve your place in the popular event. The event is run by the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier Lakes and proceeds from the event go to a variety of community groups and projects.

JESS ALLAN IS FLYING HIGH The good news for Millicent’s Jess Allan entering last week’s AFLW draft was she knew she had a home for the 2018 AFLW season. The number one picks for each club were all flown to Melbourne to be at the draft in person and Jess was in that elite group. Despite that surety, the nerves until your name is called and the excitement about living out a childhood dream was still evident, especially earning a place at the Adelaide Crows alongside her premiership winning sister Sarah. “To be drafted is pretty surreal,” Jess said, on draft day. Her story is her own but also so familiar when we hear the stories of many of the AFLW players. “I obviously started playing when I was really young but started following basketball a

bit more than my football – I always seemed to be a bit better at it,” she said. But as the pathways opened up, Jess was able to focus on football, more than just the annual national underage championships, playing for Salisbury, as

well as in the inaugural SANFL season. It has been a huge 12 months for Jess as football has resumed its place front and centre. “Last year I went from playing full back in State and not being on anyone’s radar to this year having a pretty good championships and getting a lot of attention,” Jess said. She started playing football when she was four, playing Auskick alongside her two older sisters and being coached by her father Keith. “I have pretty much followed the same pathway Sarah did,” Jess said. “We are pretty close so to be on the same team will be crazy and I think she’s really looking forward to it.” cont. page 44

It’s that time of the year again when South Australia’s Open Gardens scheme kicks into gear. The program not only showcases some of the State’s best gardens but also raises much needed money for a variety of charities. This year two gardens from this region are part of the Open Gardens South Australia schedule – Aberfoyle Garden, near Kongorong, and Wahroonga, at Worrolong. In the coming weeks, Lifestyle1 will look at both gardens in detail and the work that has gone into creating outdoor spaces that are the envy of many. Max and Barbara Lightbody have been opening their three acre, sprawling garden to the public as part of the Open Gardens scheme, since 1996 and prior to this year’s effort, with the garden being open from Saturday, October 28, to Wednesday, November 1, the couple has raised $24,000 for charity. This year, the country garden they have lovingly tended and developed for more than five decades, will be open from 10am until 4.30pm on each of the five days, raising funds for the Port MacDonnell and District Lions Club, Boandik Lodge, where Barbara’s mother was so well cared for, and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. And for the second time in their 22 year history of bringing the public through their Kongorong paradise, the

Mt Gambier & District Community Branch

Lightbodys are also hosting a special evening fundraiser. On Friday, October 27, the garden will be open at twilight for a Ryder-Cheshire fundraiser. Drinks and nibbles will be provided and tickets are $25 a head and available by calling Neville on 0417 814 568. A Beatrix Potter themed display from

the Pine Tree Quilters and musical entertainment will also be on offer at the Ryder Cheshire event, as it is for the day sessions from October 28-November 1. While Aberfoyle always attracts new visitors to take in the colour coordinated flower beds, the picturesque pond, the stunning willows, silver birches and other established trees and the raft of recycled heritage items that feature in the garden, it also brings back regular visitors – not just because they love the garden, but because you can always rely and Barbara and Max to have added something new. Poor weather has hampered preparations this year and Barbara has been spending eight hour days, at a minimum, maintaining her pride and joy, with the help of Max, and ensuring the garden is ready for the hundreds that will made the trek to School Road, Kongorong, to enjoy the fruits of her labour. Max’s famous plant stall will also be in operation, along with the usual afternoon tea and light lunches. Entry is $8 for adults, $6 for pensioners and anyone Under 18 can take a peek for free. From the roses to the pre-loved garden tools, from the wisteria covered pergola to the kitchen garden, Aberfoyle is a farm garden of the highest quality and this is your chance to enjoy it. Wahroonga will be open on November 11 and 12 from 10am to 4.30pm. See next’s week Lifestyle1 for our chat with Barbara Lightbody and the story behind Aberfoyle and its magnificent garden.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - MORE NEWS FROM CHINA... By ROBBIE TANSEL Some of you will be aware that I’ve just returned from the place with the highest amount of Chinese people per square kilometre of any place in the world. That’s right, after spending two weeks in China, Donna, Shaquille and I returned to Mount Gambier down the Great Ocean Road. I must have subconsciously transmitted a message to every Chinese person I saw while in China to meet me at the Twelve Apostles because they were literally all there. That’s not meant to be racist in any way. Why shouldn’t the Chinese want to enjoy a tourist attraction as fantastic as the Great Ocean Road, just like so many westerners I encountered at the Great Wall or the Terracotta Warriors? From what I was told tourism has really only become accessible to a large number of the Chinese population in the last twenty years, so now they’re taking advantage of that disposable income to get in my damn way! You don’t want to hear about the Great Ocean Road though so I’ll focus on some more of my travels in China. I spoke last week about seeing accidents and near misses due to there seemingly being no road rules. We witnessed a car hit a taxi in Xi’An. The car driver got out and started punching the taxi driver through

the window of his taxi. It lasted for at least a minute, during which time the passenger of the taxi threw some money to the driver and jumped out. Throughout this whole sequence the car driver’s passengers watched on as their friend beat up the taxi driver. Eventually the taxi driver who was significantly smaller than the other driver got out of his vehicle, on his phone presumably calling law enforcement. The bigger man continued to punch him as this was going on. Suddenly the taxi driver reached his hand into his car and it came out holding some sort of a weapon. It looked like a knife but turned out to be a screwdriver. He then proceeded to chase the bigger man round and round the vehicles, and suddenly the bigger man’s friends wanted to try to calm the situation. If it wasn’t so violent and dangerous it might have been comical. Ordinarily I think I would have gotten involved in some way to try to settle the protagonists but I came to the conclusion that my lack of language may have put me at risk. Quite sad really. I’d heard and read before leaving for China about the way the country is changing and the amount of building that was happening. Even knowing this it was still mind blowing seeing the sheer scale of size and number with what is being built. One of the most fascinating things was travelling between Beijing and Weifang by bullet train and seeing the amount of huge new apartment buildings that have been constructed (whole cities of them) with not

a soul apparently living in them. In Xi’An we saw a monorail that was completed, but three years later has never had a train on it. It seems that a lot of the building is for something to do. I guess it probably keeps the economy going. The other thing that is interesting when it comes to building is the apparent lack of interest in Occ Health and Safety. It seemed that most of their electricity and other cabling was hanging above ground, often through and even off trees, as well as thousands of wires attached to every building. I guess it would save having to dig things up if there were ever problems. Mind you, you’d have to figure out which of the seven thousand wires was the one malfunctioning. The Terracotta Warriors are an awe inspiring sight. Essentially Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China had eight thousand soldiers, 130 chariots and nearly seven hundred horses pottery warriors built to accompany him into the afterlife. The warriors were buried in a number of pits, had timber put over the top and then soil put on top of that, where they remained from 210 BC until they were discovered by local | 22

farmers in 1974. I’m not exactly sure if it was to impress God or try to take over Heaven and kick a few angels’ butts. Since then people have been trying to reconstruct the figures as they had been damaged over the centuries. In every souvenir shop we visited through the rest of our time in China we saw terracotta soldiers for sale, ranging from hand size to actual size. To be honest I couldn’t tell the difference so I don’t know why they didn’t just set some 3D printers to work. If you want to help me to build some terracotta warriors to put around in my backyard, email me at robbietansel@

CHARITY THE WINNER AT TRUCK PULL EVENT Strong community and industry support for the 2017 Fennell Forestry Truck Pull Challenge has led to an event record donation of more than $30,000

for children’s charity, Variety. The fifth annual event was held at the Glenburnie Saleyards earlier this month, with hundreds of people

turning out to take in the action. Seven, six-person teams took part, using only strength and endurance to roll the 23 tonne Kenworth B-Double 100 metres to the finish line. And while the Fennell Forestry team took home the cup on the day, charity was once again the real winner with $31,100 secured for Variety via the owners of SA Bash Car #58, Trevor and Yvonne Sims. Fennell Forestry managing director Wendy Fennell said she was continually overwhelmed by the generosity of both the local community and her trucking and forest industry peers. “The Truck Pull event has grown a real profile since it began as a bit of fun back in 2013,” she said. “We have created a free community event which brings together industry representatives for day of friendly rivalry. We have also raised more than $90,000 for children’s charity in the last five years – that’s something our organising team is extremely proud of.” Adding extra forestry-themed excitement to the day, Adelaide-based Australian Strongmen and Strength Syndicate members Jordan Steffens and Steph Davies showcased formidable strength in front of an enthusiastic crowd. Steph, who is in training for Commonwealth Games selection, single-handedly moved an 11 tonne prime Mmover while Jordan made a seemingly easy meal of the 23 tonne B-Double. A lengthy list of generous local sponsors threw their support behind

AT A GLANCE PHOTOS (FROM LEFT) 22nd annual on-property sale at Woomelang, Victoria, on October 5, they came through with flying colours, presenting a superb quality line-up of 176 rams and 52 ewes that all cleared except for just one ewe, and averaged an extremely solid $1488.

1. Pictured with the $5000 top priced Poll Dorset ram at Janmac are coprincipal Bryce Hausler; David Hanel, Rodwells; purchaser Haydn Lines, Keith; co-principal Grant Hausler holding the ram; and Landmark auctioneer Richard Miller JANMAC SALE The Hausler family’s Janmac Poll Dorset and White Suffolk ram sale at Goroke on October 4 achieved a total clearance of an increased offering of 184 rams, soaring to a new record average of $1643, up $348 on last year’s previous Janmac record average. There were 54 registered bidders including many long term regulars who appreciated the quality of the rapid growing lambs the Janmac rams produce. However, they were also joined by seven new buyers who made a significant impact on the result. A delighted Grant Hausler said post sale that their decision to add another 14 rams to the offering without compromising the overall quality was vindicated. “Competition for the first 100 rams today was as strong as it has ever been and the seven new buyers made a really significant impact,” he said. “I think the amazing result was really a case of the stars aligning; a culmination of three important factors coming together: the great season, the strength of the lamb market and the quality of genetics we have been building towards for a long time.”

WOOLUMBOOL SALE Almost 200 rams went under the hammer at Woolumbool on October 4 as Phil and Sharon Clothier and business partners Aaron and Sally Clothier celebrated the stud’s 30th annual on farm sale at the Greenvale Woolshed. With the building of a new shearing shed planned for their neighbouring property at Yakka Downs ahead of next year’s sale, it was the end of an era for Woolumbool. Close to 40 buyers registered with Elders Lucindale, clerking for joint agents Elders and Landmark, with a very good clearance of 192 Poll Dorset and White Suffolk rams. Four specially selected elite Poll Dorset rams and 10 elite White Suffolks rams were offered first. Limestone Coast locals Mary Burzacott and Mike Emery of Mulgundawa Poll Dorset stud, via Kingston made the most of this top opportunity, purchasing the top priced Poll Dorset for $2800. “We pride ourselves on producing rams which suit a variety of markets,” Phil Clothier said. “The rams we’ve had this year are very well grown, as they should be with the feed that they’ve had from a much better season.”

ANDEN FOLOWS UP RECORD SALE WITH ANOTHER GOOD OFFERING The sale of a once in a generation sire that blasted all sheep meat sale records last year was always going to be an extremely hard act to follow for the Donnan family, Anden and Kerangie studs, Woomelang. However, at their

ram withdrawn from the auction, to support the school’s agriculture program. The school’s agriculture teacher Carol Hille and farm manager Trevor Bennier were happy with this result.

LUCINDALE AREAS SCHOOL EARNS WINDFALL FROM RAM SALE Lucindale Area School had three White Suffolk flock rams offered for sale at the Woolumbook auction, which originated from Woolumbool stock. II & PE Hocking of Lucindale bought W160015 for $1200, and obligingly bought another

ALLENDALE/DAYS SALE The Day families staged their 45th and huge four breed sheep sale at Bordertown on October 6, and on the back of very strong flock ram demand they achieved a 95% clearance from their combined 447 sheep offering. With 116 registered bidders representing four states, there was constant activity throughout the 4.5 hours sale, not only from active bidding, but with seat changing between the stud and flock drafts of the four breeds: Allendale Suffolks and Poll Dorsets and Days White Suffolks and Maternal Composites.

United Way Glenelg is pleased to announce local footballer, Jarrod Holt, his partner Tamika Amos and their son Archie as the new ambassadors for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Jarrod and Tamika welcomed Archie into their family 18 months ago and it was then their literacy journey really began. “We started reading to Archie when he was a new born, knowing as parents it was crucial to his development,” Tamika said. “We had a range of books at home but uncertain if we were selecting the right books for Archie.” Tamika enrolled Archie for the Imagination Library after hearing about it at her workplace, Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service. “Archie loves the books he receives in the mail every month. They are bright, bold and the books hold his interest when we read to him,” said Tamika. M“The book tip sheet that comes with the books gives Jarrod and I ideas on how we can get more out of each book.” The Imagination Library takes the guess work out of book selection as they have been pre-determined by a Book Selection Committee made up of representatives from Penguin Australia, University of Melbourne, Libraries, aboriginal co-operative and migrant resource centre. United Way Glenelg Executive Officer Nicole Angelino said it was important to remember that the act of reading aloud is just as meaningful as whatever books you choose. “Having an age appropriate book collection growing at home is fostering a lifelong love of reading and setting them up for a great start in life,” Ms Angelino said. United Way Glenelg has partnered with Portland Aluminium to deliver the Imagination Library books to all children enrolled and living in the Glenelg Shire. For more information on enrolling your child to start receiving FREE monthly books from the Imagination Library please contact Nicole Angelino on 0410 51 3305 or via email mail@ Above - Tamika Amos, Archie & Jarrod Holt enjoying an Imagination Library book. | 30

TOP BUSINESSES HONOURED A speciality gift store, a furniture giant and a medical icon have all been inducted into the Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame. Those inductions kick started a night of celebration of Mount Gambier business success stories at the 2017 National Australia Bank Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business Awards. DJ Interiors, Eddie’s Furniture and Hawkins Medical Clinic were the three Hall of Fame inductees – an award scheme inaugurated in 2005 to recognise locally owned businesses that have been trading for more than 30 years under the same name. Not surprisingly two of the inductees are proud family owned businesses – DJ Interiors and Eddie’s Furniture. DJs has long been the go to store for that special gift with its range of quality gift lines, jewellery, cookware and other homewares and Sharon and Spencer Buck were honoured to see their business honoured in this way. And when it comes to furniture for any room in the house, or outdoor living space, Eddie’s has become Mount Gambier’s one stop shop and first choice for fitting out their home, with Eddie Sakkers proudly accepting the Hall of Fame accolade. Dr Peter Charlton collected the Hawkins Medical Clinic Hall of Fame accolade, with the always expanding medical practice having been taking care of this community’s health and well being for decades. The evening then moved to handing out the 2017 honours, starting with the Job Prospects Outstanding Employee Award, which went to Mick O’Donohoe, from Avis. Mick has been with Avis for a decade, bringing old school customer service to his role as duty manager, where he manages the day to day running of Avis locations in Mount Gambier, Naracoorte, Portland and Warrnambool. One of the two new awards to be handed out went the way of rising young

photographer Georgia Quick, who took home the Young Business person of the Year, sponsored by Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell. Trading as Georgia Paige Photography, Georgia has officially been in business for your years after offering to take 16th birthday photos for a friend. The business has gone from strength to strength from there with Georgia capturing birthdays, graduations, debutante balls and social events. She is the head photographer at Mac’s Hotel, where she also works in promotions, and has done freelance work for Lifestyle1 and a variety of sporting groups. The City of Mount Gambier Outstanding Environment & Sustainability Award went the way of Tenison Woods College, honoured for its sustainable programs and commitment to fostering environmentally friendly practices. Real estate operators Key 2 Sale took home the MGA Insurance Brokers Outstanding New Business Award. A home staging and real estate company, Gail Richards set up Key 2 Sale in 2015, as a home staging operation, using her 12 years of experience in the real estate industry. In recent months, Gail returned to the real estate game as well, and has now taken on a business partner to further expand that part of the business. A commitment to bringing quality

live music to the region and a niche experience with unique accommodation facilities has seen the Old Mount Gambier Gaol take home the Hit 96.1 & 963 Triple M Outstanding Tourism/ Hospitality/Accommodation Award. The Red Hot Summer Tour has been a popular innovation spearheaded by Jamie and Melissa Stephenson, while the backpacker and family oriented accommodation at the facility also caters for school camps. The Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast Outstanding Manufacturing/Building Industry Award went to Mates Rates Mt Gambier – a construction equipment hire company set up by Adam and Jayla Fosdike in 2010. Mates Rates has also moved into waste water management, as well as shed and trailer sales, and the couple is looking to continually evolve and develop the business. The Grant District Council Outstanding Agribusiness was taken out by The Splendid Egg.

ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR Thirteen time national aerobatic champion Chris Sperou, who hails from South Australia’s West Coast, is the headline act at the 141st Millicent Show. The November 3-5 event will still boast all its regular main attraction, including the motocross, horses in action events, indoor displays, sideshow alley, yard dog championship, shearing and fireworks.

Chris Sperou has been an air show favourite for more than four decades, winning his first national title before he was even aerobatic endorsed. Chris’s love of aeroplanes developed when he was very young when he used to wag school to cycle out to the local aerodrome to catch a glimpse of military aircraft staging through Ceduna, which was a fuel stop. But it wasn’t until he was 21

that he joined the Royal Aero Club of South Australia and started to pursue his passion for flying in earnest and he has never looked back. He has represented Australia at the World Titles and in 1980 was part of the bronze medal winning team. Chris was the first Australian pilot to be granted permission to fly low level aerobatics down to ground level. He has performed in the skies above the Formula One action when it was hosted by Adelaide, has performed side by side with F-18s as part of the Clipsal 500 and has been a movie stunt pilot. Chris will be performing twice at the Millicent Show – at 7pm on Friday, November 3, and 2.30pm on Saturday, November 4. The 2017 show also has a renewed focus on the kids with a new Kids Corner on offer and a performance from George The Farmer. Offering activities for newborns to eight year olds, the new Kid’s Corner will be set up for activities including painting, playdough, colouring in, craft and jumbo puzzles. All children will have to be accompanied by an adult and there will be baby changing and feeding areas on offer as well. George The Farmer will hit the stage at 12.30pm, on Saturday, November 4, with a live musical performance, a book reading and prize giveaways. George has become a huge success story for his

creators, as he and his friends combine education and fun. Backed by its 141 year history, the Millicent Show is still, at its heart, a traditional country show, showcasing the skills of the man and woman on the land through events like the shearing, yard dog championships, livestock judging, culminating in the grand parade, as well as all the indoor hall competitions and displays. Art, photography, handicrafts, machine and embroidery, knitting and crocheting, cooking, fresh produce, jams and jellies, pot plants, cut flowers, floral art, woodwork and metalwork and the kids sections are all part of the indoor

hall competitions, shining a light on the time honoured skills that have been showcased at basically every show for 141 years. Indoor halls convenor Susie Hutchesson said interest ebbed and flowed among the different categories but the hall was always full ready for judging and then the public to take a peek. While organisers are committed to keeping the long standing categories going, they do also look for new ideas. That happened this year, with the fire poster competition, so long a staple of all regional shows, was revamped and the cover of the showbook became the subject of choice for the children entering. That has already been judged with Millicent North Primary School Year 6 student Keelie Linder winning the competition and her design is now on the cover of every show book. St Anthony’s Primary School’s Fletcher Leopold was runner-up. . Cont. opp. page Above (top) - Aerobatic star Chris Sperou is the 2017 Millicent Show headline act.

ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR FROM OPP. PAGE And the good news is, the next generation is interested in still entering the indoor hall competitions. “The kids love to come in and see the work they’ve done,” Susie said. “A lot of people come into the hall every year once judging has finished and love looking at all the crafts and cooking and everything like that.” The Horses in Action program is also a staple of the Millicent Show program with showjumping, the Stockman’s Challenge, the hack ring, breed ring, topsy ring, harness and hunter ring. Organisers have also revamped their program for 2017 with Lynda Field hoping the change in timing and venue will help generate even more spectator interest. “We have moved the Stockman’s Challenge to the main oval and on Saturday rather than it being hidden away out the back and on Sunday,” Lynda said. “We feel that will really generate some interest, watching the different events that are a part of that challenge.” The showjumping is always popular and that is set for its usual Saturday and Sunday competition. “We usually get competitors from as far away as the Adelaide Hills and quite a few from Western Victoria, especially for the showjumping,” Lynda said. She said all shows were struggling a little with numbers for equestrian events due to

the expense involved in having even one horse. “We do still attract reasonable numbers though and we run classes on the Sunday for the locals and pony club members and the local kids love getting involved in the topsy ring which is just a

bit of fun,” Lynda said. The motocross action is also an integral part of the Millicent Show program with action starting at 3pm on Friday, November 3. The Mount Gambier Junior Motorcycle Club runs the Millicent

program with both junior and senior classes in action, including the Dale Teagle Memorial Feature Race, which is under lights on Friday night. That sees 25 riders going head to head for the $1000 winner takes all prize pool. Racing

continues on Saturday. Above - Showjumping (left) and motocross (right) still continue to attract the crowds to the Millicent Show which runs from November 3-5 this year.



The Millicent Show has a new competition as part of its 2017 program and it’s not your usual show fare. The South East Natural Resource Management Board is holding a weed competition with prizes for the biggest weed and also a weed bouquet competition. This new initiative is bound to attract interest not just from entrants but also the general public.

MCINERNEY STARTS WITH A TON North Gambier has started the 2017/18 Mount Gambier and District Cricket Association season in ominous form, securing a comprehensive 156 run win over Mil Lel in the opening round of Barber Shield action at the weekend. The victory was punctuated by a standout performance from Matt McInerney (pictured below), who showed no signs of cobwebs with the bat, putting together a stunning 132 at the top of the Tigers order to all but put the match beyond Mil Lel’s reach. The classy knock included 15 fours and five sixes, as he

stole the show in the 197 run opening stand with Jack Schutz (47). McInerney has had some good hit outs at recent Outbacks trials and believes that played a role in him seeing the ball so well in the season opener. And the Tigers were relentless with Nick McInerney and Michael Silvy also providing late runs. The 256 run victory target was always going to test Mil Lel and so it did after a solid start from Justin Lamont (18) and Josh Jantosh (14) for a stand of 34. It went quickly downhill, though, with wickets tumbling regularly as Mil Lel lost all 10 wickets for 65 runs. Declan Kenny was the star with the ball, taking 4/8 in a seven over spell that included three maidens, while Nick McInerney picked up 3/19 and Matt McInerney also had an impact with the ball, taking 2/16. New recruit Michael Waters certainly proved his worth to Penola, providing an unbeaten 30 late in the Eagles innings to lift the mediocre total to 124 and then taking 3/13 with the ball as East was unable to take advantage of a below-par batting performance from Penola. East’s Nick Gore secured the first bag of wickets for the season with 5/12 but his Bulldog team mates could not find any rhythm with the bat and fell 53 runs short. West Gambier also looked like one of the main contenders with a convincing performance over South Gambier, securing a 155 run victory. Niall Easterbrook (51) and Bowen Hosking (51) were in great touch at the top of the order while Richard Crute looms as a key recruit for the Roos, with Robbie Drenthen (39) left to play a lone hand for the inexperienced Maroons.

JESS ALLAN IS FLYING HIGH FROM PAGE 4 Aside from the lure of playing alongside her sister, Jess is also looking forward to continuing to nurture her relationship with coach Bec Goddard, who has coached her at underage national championships. “I really like the way she does

everything - game preparation, trainings and she really motivated me before the match,” Jess said. “She pretty much treated us like Crows, it was an elite environment. She puts in a lot of effort into getting to know each and everyone of us personally.” Jess knows no matter how prepared she is and no matter how strong a pre-season she has, playing AFLW will be a huge step up and a real learning curve. “I think the games are going to be an extra step up, more physical, a lot harder,” she said. Pre-season starts on November 20 and Jess will be bunking in with Sarah at their grandparents house. The duo is looking forward not to just playing side by side, but also pushing each other and training together. Her’ improvement over the past 12 months is also a testament to dad Keith, who has worked closely with Jess in the lead up to this draft. “He really stepped up trainings and I did a lot of work with dad individually to improve. He’s pretty happy and sees that his job is over and he has handed us over to the Crows.” Jess has had limited discussions regarding her role at the Crows, but Bec Goddard has suggested in the ruck and forward will be the role for Jess. Jess will also be looking to study at Flinders University and is currently deciding between two courses.
