Two of the best

RSL OUR TRUE BLUE MATES

By XAVIER SMERDON

By NATALIE GALLENTI-BREKALO

TWO of the West’s oldest and most respected war veterans will be among the thousands of residents who will gather to remember the ultimate sacrifices made by fallen soldiers. At 103 years old, James Crouch is the oldest WWII veteran living in Werribee. Born in England, he spent most of his time in the war in Italy where he fired 25-pounder howitzers, the major British field gun at the time. He was later transferred to Greece and was about to be sent to India when his wife was injured in a car accident. Mr Crouch moved to Australia in 1977 and joined Werribee RSL. He has taken part in every Anzac Day Dawn Service at the cenotaph every year since. Just a few kilometres away, another veteran has become known as one of the most revered members of his community. Bordy Weeku is a Karen refugee who fought for the British army in World War II after the Japanese invaded Burma with the help of the Burma Independence Army. He joined the army in 1937 at just 18 years old, before training as a soldier in India. The 94-year-old spent almost 20 years in a Burmese refugee camp, surrounded by barbed wire and living on basic rations, before moving to Werribee in 2007. He is now the oldest and most respected member of Wyndham’s Karen community, which is made up of members of the second-largest ethnic group from Burma. Mr Weeku told Star that he was proud of his efforts during WWII and he was now enjoying his life in Werribee. Last year around 6000 people attended the Dawn Service in Werribee, the largest crowd Werribee RSL President Daryl Ryan had ever seen in his 40 years with the organisation. “It’s great to know that so many people recognise the sacrifices that were made by people that went to war,” Mr Ryan said.

AS people from Melbourne’s West prepare to commemorate Anzac Day this Friday, veterans continue to remind us of the importance of the local RSL. President of the Caroline Springs RSL subbranch Peter Burquest told Star the RSL remained a very important institution for returned service personnel, despite its popularity declining in recent years. Already the Caroline Springs branch, which was officially opened in February this year, has gained widespread support from the community. “The response has been great, we already have just over 100 members in the past few months,” Mr Burquest said. The Vietnam veteran said RSLs were established to assist veterans and their families after serving their country. “We need to maintain what the RSL is all about, we are hoping to attract the younger generation to become members ... eventually military personnel will run out but Anzac Day still needs to be held dear as one of the most important days of the year.” In recent years two RSLs in Melbourne’s West have been forced to shut their doors. The Maribyrnong-Maidstone RSL closed after the club discovered it was $57,000 in debt, while Spotswood RSL faced closure in 2012. President of Altona RSL Tom Crooks said despite recent closures the RSL still played a key role in the lives of veterans and their families. “The RSL was all about the welfare of veterans but it has become a lot more ... to me the most important thing is getting the younger generation involved,” Mr Crooks said. “We explain to them that they are the future, it’s them that will keep us going. “It’s all about mateship, we all get together ... Vietnam vets, soldiers returning from Afghanistan and East Timor. “We’re trying to get away from the old man’s club, but when an RSL gets into trouble we work together.”

103-year-old James Crouch and 94-year-old Bordy Weeku. “We have freedom of the press and we have freedom of speech thanks to what some of these men and women did during WWI and WWII and thanks to what soldiers are still doing overseas today.” Mr Ryan has been president of the RSL for a total of 29 years, and after he returned from Vietnam injured, he said it was important for

the community to be accepting of all returning soldiers. “A lot of sub-branches wouldn’t accept Vietnam veterans, but Werribee was different. They accepted me since day one,” he said. “We’re very proud of the sacrifices that all of our members have made.”

Anzac Day

Our part in history By CHARLENE MACAULAY WORLD WAR I and the Gallipoli Campaign are considered to be defining moments in Australian history. It was also a defining moment for the thousands of young fighters across the West who fought for their country. One of those was 18-year-old Thomas Duff Anderson Aitken. At an age where people nowadays get their licence and are legally allowed to drink, the Yarraville resident joined the Australian Imperial Force and was assigned to the 31st Battery, 8th BA Brigade. The qualified fitter rose to the rank of gunner as he was deployed to various areas, including France and Belgium. He died of wounds sustained in action in Belgium on 4 October 1917 as part of the 2nd ANZAC Corps, aged 20.

Meanwhile, Sunshine resident Leslie Raymond Hensbergh enlisted as a 19-year-old brass finisher in February 1916 and was deployed to France and England as a private. He was reported wounded and missing in France in May 1917 - only 15 months after enlisting - and was confirmed to be killed in action in December that year. Then there’s 21-year-old Robert George Blackburne, who joined in January 1916 with two years of Senior Cadets experience in Williamstown. He started off in Engineer Reinforcements 2nd MD and worked across France and England before returning to Australia at the end of 1918. Thomas, Leslie and Robert were only three of thousands of young men across the West and Australia who joined the war effort in a showing of national pride and bravery. One hundred years on, we will continue to remember them.

YOUR SONS ARE OUR SONS NOW By YASEMIN TALAT ANZAC Day is a time to commemorate the Johnnies and the Mehmets, with Australians and Turkish Australians coming together to remember their forefathers this Anzac Day. President of the Turkish SubBranch of the Victorian RSL, Ramazan Altintas, said it was an important time for the Turkish community in Australia to come together with their fellow Australians and remember the lives lost at war and the mateship formed between the Johnnies and the Mehmets. “This is a time where we can honour, remember, and a time for us all to reflect with pride on our history and values that unite us as Australians and Turks,” Mr Altintas said.

“Anzac Day for Turks is not only the day of their proud victory against all odds to reassert their right to nationhood, but also their admiration for the valorous troops of ANZAC they encountered in the test of fire,” he said. “Anzac Day for Australians is the day of pride for an identity proven without doubt and the merit of a nationhood forged in battle.” “Yes the Johnnies and the Mehmets fought against each other in 1915, however the conduct of friendship and comradeship was existent among them all.” This year marks the 99th anniversary since the World War I battle of Gallipoli commenced on 25 April 1915. As part of the commemoration the

Turkish members of the Turkish Subbranch of the Victorian RSL, as well as Turkish members from RSLs across Victoria and the wider Turkish community will join the Anzac March and ceremony. The Melbourne Turkish Community Centre and the Turkish Sub-Branch of the Victorian RSL will also host a commemorative evening to mark the anniversary. “The Johnnies and the Mehmets portrayed a sense of duty and courage that continue to inspire us,” Mr Altintas said. “Their stories of sacrifice and service illuminate the highest virtues of the human spirits.” Next year, Mr Altintas, with the help and support of the Australian

and Turkish governments, is hoping to erect an Australian and Turkish friendship memorial sculpture at the Shrine of Remembrance to mark the 100th anniversary of WWI, Anzac Day and to pay tribute to all the soldiers and their bravery. “Anzac Day is always going to be, for each Turk and Aussie, a day to prove to a friend and foe that those who have fallen in 1915 have confirmed our right to survive as nations,” Mr Altintas said. “May they rest in peace as their ideals continue to be upheld by each and every new Turkish and Australian generation.” The then Turkish president and Gallipoli veteran Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s 1934 tribute commemorating the loss

of Anzac and Turkish soldiers at Gallipoli: “Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us Where they lie side by side now here in this country of ours ... You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away the tears; Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.”

Road safety plea By CHARLENE MACAULAY CITY of Maribyrnong residents are continuing to put themselves at risk on the municipality’s roads, despite a police road safety operation. Footscray Police fined 27 people during a recent operation along Whitehall St, which saw two people nabbed for not wearing a seatbelt, three drivers for using their mobile phones while behind the wheel, two cyclists not wearing helmets, one driver for illegal parking, and 18 pedestrian offences. The result comes after 10 road trauma injury incidents were recorded across the municipality for the month of March. Seven of these involved vulnerable road users - three cyclists, three pedestrians and one motorcycle rider. Footscray Police have been working hard since January to increase the safety of vulnerable road users through Operation Red Man. The five-month road safety operation, which is being funded by the Transport Accident Commission, is targeting the safety of pedestrians,

Jelly in the belly KAYLAH Lena knows that the exotic art of belly dancing can be life-changing. The Maribyrnong resident, who started out her dancing career in ballroom, soon found the structured nature too confining. Then she discovered belly dancing more than 10 years ago, and has shimmied and shaken to exotic Middle Eastern tunes every day since. Today, Ms Lena performs up to eight times a week for a range of corporate functions, birthdays, engagement parties, weddings, hen’s nights and other events. She also provides one-on-one tuition for people wanting to get in touch with their inner belly dancer. Ms Lena will perform at the Conscious Living Expo this weekend at the Melbourne Showgrounds. 118378 Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI

cyclists and motorcyclists after a 30 per cent spike in serious injury collisions across the municipality. Operation Red Man has seen a series of covert and overt operations run by uniform and plain clothes police officers that focus on drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists doing the wrong thing on the road. The operation will run until May. Footscray Police Inspector Tony Long said police were disappointed by how many pedestrians continued to flout basic road rules, despite the added police presence. Insp Long said the dedicated bike lanes along Whitehall St were particularly dangerous for cyclists, with many cars not giving way to bike riders, but added that police had also caught many cyclists riding without helmets and disobeying signs. “These figures speak for themselves and quite clearly justify our ongoing efforts in relation to reducing the number of incidents involving vulnerable road users,” Insp Long said.

Ambo pledge By XAVIER SMERDON THE stalemate between the State Government and Victorian ambulance paramedics would be ended under a Labor Government, the Opposition has declared. Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said last week the Labor Party would end the dispute over pay immediately by referring the matter to an independent umpire to rule on. “The way to fix our broken ambulance system is to end Denis Napthine’s war on paramedics,” Mr Andrews said. “This dispute should be

sent to the independent umpire now. If Denis Napthine won’t, then a Labor Government will.” Shadow Health Minister Gavin Jennings also said the stalemate was putting people’s lives at risk. “Under Denis Napthine, too many people are waiting too long for an ambulance and lives are at risk,” Mr Jennings said. “We will work with our paramedics - we believe in cooperation, not condemnation.” The Labor Party claimed in a statement that 27 per cent of ambulances were failing to

reach emergency cases on time, nearly 25 per cent of ambulance transfers to hospitals were taking longer than 40 minutes and a 2013 survey showed that 1500 paramedics were planning on leaving the service in the next five years. Last month, following a ballot held by the Ambulance Employees Australia union, it was announced that union members would be able to speak publicly about the pay dispute under protected action. Star contacted the Health Minister David Davis’s office for comment but they did not respond before deadline.

TAFE teeters on the edge PREMIER Denis Napthine’s TAFE cuts have pushed Victoria University TAFE to the brink of financial collapse, according to Footscray MP Marsha Thomson. Victoria University TAFE’s annual report revealed that government funding had halved from $18.8 million to $9 million. The annual report also showed

that in 2012 there were 413 fulltime TAFE teaching jobs, while now there are only 319, showing that almost a 100 full-time jobs have been lost from Victoria University TAFE. The participation rate for the 25-64 year old cohort has also decreased significantly since the cuts, with 4000 less students.

In the 2013 year alone, there was a $119 million cut to TAFE operational funding by the Napthine Government, according to the Auditor General. Since $1.2 billion in TAFE cuts were announced in 2012, thousands of jobs are gone, course fees have increased, courses were scrapped and campuses were forced to close.

Hoons face their doom By CHARLENE MACAULAY POLICE are clamping down on hoon drivers in a new pilot program that will see cars impounded at residential addresses. The six-month trial will see specially trained Highway Patrol officers determine whether a hoon driver can have their vehicle immobilised by wheel clamps or steering locks at a private address instead of having the car taken to an impound facility. The pilot is being undertaken to determine if immobilisation is a

viable, effective and sustainable alternative to impoundment, and will complement the current impoundment program already in place across metropolitan Melbourne. The initiative will run until 30 September. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said Victoria Police had always had the power to immobilise a vehicle under the Road Safety Act 1986, however recent legislative changes made it possible to outsource immobilisation to contractors.

“Victoria Police impounded around 4600 vehicles last year and we are projecting a similar number of impounds this year,” he said. “This pilot will determine what the benefits are to the community and the police. “We believe immobilisation will reduce our vehicle storage costs, but more importantly, it will alleviate officers having to wait around for tow trucks and get them back on the road. “A sticker will be placed on the vehicle outlining the fines associ-

ated with tampering with the immobilisation device or unauthorised relocation of the vehicle. Hooning includes anti-social road behaviour, including excessive speeding, repeat drink driving or disqualified driving. Since July 2011, police have had the power to seize a vehicle involved in hooning and impound or immobilise it for 30 days. If a driver is found guilty of three hoon-related offences inside three years, their vehicle can be permanently forfeited by the court.

Fine time for drivers DRIVERS have forked out nearly $1.27 million in fines from the City of Maribyrnong’s six fixed speed and red light cameras. Figures from the State Government’s Cameras Save Lives website reveal the cameras recorded 5228 infringements between July and September 2013. The camera at Maidstone’s Ballarat Rd and Ashley St intersection remains the most profitable one in the municipality, catching out 2114 offences during that period and putting $449,094 into State Government coffers. It is also ranked 15th across the state for catching out speeding cars. Cameras at Footscray’s Geelong Rd and Droop St intersection, Footscray’s Gordon St and Barkly St intersection, and the Geelong St and Geelong Rd intersection in Kingsville round out the top four. Meanwhile, Victoria Police can now detect irresponsible drivers with Australia’s first Ranger camera, a portable camera with a long lens, which was introduced last week and can be used to detect motorists using mobile phones and not wearing their seatbelts up to 700 metres away.

Time for rail works By CHARLENE MACAULAY THE Regional Rail Link (RRL) Authority has taken advantage of the Easter long weekend and shorter working week this week to carry out major works in Footscray. The Sunbury line was closed on Saturday and will remain closed until the end of Friday, while the Werribee, Williamstown and Geelong lines will shut down over this weekend in a bid to fasttrack construction over the quieter holiday period. Replacement bus and coach services will operate along these lines while the works are carried out. In the meantime, the RRL Footscray to Deer Park team will complete the new platforms three and four at Footscray train station for V/Line trains and continue work on the station’s heritage buildings. The finishing touches will also be put on the Nicholson St bridge, as well as landscaping works at West Footscray train station. “Completing works over this quieter period will help to minimise the impact on rail passengers and road users, while also making significant progress in a short time,” State Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder said. “By taking advantage of this quieter holiday period we reduce the number of weekend rail closures and are able to more efficiently deliver on projects.” The RRL will create capacity for an extra 23 suburban and 10 regional services during each morning and evening at peak times, allowing an extra 54,000 passenger trips each day. The project has already seen the opening of two new platforms at Southern Cross station and the project’s first section of dedicated V/Line tracks. This means trains on the Geelong line will have a clear run to Southern Cross and won’t have to wait behind metropolitan trains. For full details on all road and rail closures, maintenance, renewal works and information on replacement bus services can be found on www. regionalraillink.vic.gov.au or www.ptv.vic.gov.au

Final stage of The Grove By CHARLENE MACAULAY A NEW housing estate in Maidstone has released its final stage. The Grove estate, which offers contemporary twobedroom townhouses, has released stage four after successfully selling more than 100 townhouses over stages one to three. Stages one and two are currently under construction, with prices for stage four starting from $490,000. John Crane from R. Corp, the developers of The Grove, said the surge in housing values and Maidstone’s proximity to Melbourne’s CBD had turned the suburb into an emerging hot spot.

“R. Corp’s philosophy is to provide beautifully designed townhouses in central locations at an attainable price,” Mr Crane said. “The Grove Maidstone has provided a great opportunity to develop contemporary townhouses below the median price with strong potential for growth.” Andrea Walker and her husband bought a twobedroom townhouse with retreat, which they plan on converting into a third bedroom. The pair, who currently live in Hawthorn East, hope to move into their townhouse in January next year. “My husband and I were looking around for quite a

while - not so much in the Maribyrnong and Maidstone area, but more in Altona North - and we just sort of found that the size of house that we were looking for was out of our price range,” Ms Walker said. “We widened our net to find a suitable place and The Grove was the first thing we saw in Maidstone, and that was it. “It was affordable and exactly what we needed. “I’m from the West, my husband’s from Newcastle in New South Wales ... we just wanted to be close to family, especially because we want to start a family in the next few years, hopefully.”

The Grove estate is selling its latest stage. Emma Kearsley tries out one of the display home.

THE City of Maribyrnong’s property market has experienced a slow start to 2014. The Real Estate Institute of Victoria’s (REIV) median house prices for the March 2014 quarter reveal that the suburbs of Braybrook, Footscray, West Footscray, Kingsville, Maribyrnong, Seddon and Maidstone each achieved less than 30 sales during the first three months of the year. Yarraville was the only suburb in the municipality to sell above 30 homes for the quarter, but experienced a 6.8 per cent drop in its median house price from $696,870 to $652,500. Maribyrnong remains the most expensive suburb in the municipality, boasting a 9.1 per cent boost to post a median of $865,000, while Braybrook is the best place to bag a bargain, with a median of $430,000. There was no sales data for Tottenham. In comparison, Melbourne’s median house price rose by nearly four per cent in the first quarter of 2014 to reach a new high of $652,500. REIV CEO Enzo Raimondo said that while Melbourne’s house and unit prices continued to grow, the increase this quarter was more moderate than in the past two quarters. “We saw a strong second half of 2013, so this more moderate growth is to be expected,” Mr Raimondo said. “The market is still growing, but at a much more moderate pace and is far from what would be called a housing boom.” He added that the auction market remained relatively healthy, with a surge in the number of auctions and a clearance rate of 72 per cent in the March quarter.

Ellis soars high By ADEM SARICAOGLU COREY Ellis has emerged as an early leading candidate to join the growing list of Western Jets to end up on an AFL list in the senior ranks. After showing plenty of bottomage promise in 12 games for the Jets in 2013, the former Keilor junior has flown out of the blocks to start his draft-eligible year. In four games so far this TAC Cup season, the 17-year-old has averaged nearly 25 disposals a game and has been named among the Jets’ best on three occasions, but was still one of their better contributors the one time he was left out. Ellis is happy with his earlyseason form through the midfield, but told Star he wants to improve on some of his defensive work as the season progresses. “I’m pretty happy with how I’m going, I’m playing some consistent footy,” Ellis said. “We’re just not getting the wins we need and hopefully that’ll turn around, but (I’m) just pretty happy with how I’m going so far. “I think just playing in the midfield and being able to use my aerobic ability and get to stoppages and getting near the ball as much as possible (is working well), and when I go back just being able to run off my man and get a bit of the ball up-field and being able to use it up there a bit more, too. “With my defensive running, locating a man from the stoppage or whenever they have possession, I’ve just got to try to keep my man to a low number of touches as possible and just make sure I can stick to an opponent and keep him down.” Ellis hit top form in his most recent outing for the Jets against the Northern Territory, slamming home

Seagulls’ egg-cellent Easter show By LIAM TWOMEY

Corey Ellis has started the 2014 TAC Cup season in blistering form. 105187 Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI two goals and gathering 35 touches and 11 marks for the day. Though the Territory struggled throughout that game, Ellis said it was his best ever performance in the blue and gold. “That was probably my best game for the Jets,” he said.

“I was just able to find some space and get used and sneak forward and kick a couple and it all just kind of worked on the day.” Ellis hopes his recent form will warrant a call-up for Vic Metro later this year and the ultimate goal is to follow in the footsteps of former Jets

team-mate and fellow Keilor alumni James Sicily onto an AFL list come season’s end. Trial games for Vic Metro and Vic Country were held over the weekend with final squads expected to be announced within the coming few weeks.

WILLIAMSTOWN celebrated the Easter weekend with a huge 70-point win against Richmond. With the match moved to Burbank Oval last week, the Seagulls made the most of their bonus home game and quickly got on top in the contest. Williamstown dominated the opening quarter, kicking 6.4 to Richmond’s 2.1 to take a 27-point lead into the break. Despite fewer goals coming in the second term, there was no letting up on the pressure as the Seagulls continued to have the better of the big moments. Defensively, Williamstown held the Tigers to just one goal while adding another two themselves to increase the lead. If Richmond thought the first half was tough, the Tigers were in for a nasty surprise after the break with the pressure increasing further. Williamstown piled on 11 goals to five to seal the 19.15 (129) to 8.11 (59) win. Jake Owen and William Wheeler were outstanding for the Seagulls up forward, both finishing the match with three goals. Scott Clouston also provided a good target on his way to two goals. Around the ground, Owen, Ben Jolley and Nick Meese were all among Williamstown’s best players. On what was a tough day for Richmond, Todd Banfield worked hard and was named best on ground for the Tigers. The weekend’s result is Williamstown’s second win in a row after dropping its first two games of the season. This week will see the Seagulls host Port Melbourne at Burbank Oval.

Even Daw not enough By LIAM TWOMEY

A FIVE-goal haul from Majak Daw wasn’t enough to give Werribee an upset win against Port Melbourne on Saturday. The Tigers fought hard throughout the contest before eventually going down by 13 points, 16.11 (107) to 14.10 (94). Despite entering the game as underdogs, Werribee made a great start to the match at North Port Oval. After conceding the first two goals, the Tigers lifted their pressure around the contest and started to make an impact on the scoreboard. Werribee kicked five of the next six goals to take a 13-point lead into quarter-time. However, after the break, Port Melbourne was able to wrestle back the momentum. The Borough started to win a lot more of the 50/50 contests and clearances on their way to seven second quarter goals.

After looking dangerous inside 50 throughout the first quarter, Werribee struggled to make the most of their chances in the second term and converted just one goal. The 22-point half-time margin was always going to be tough to overcome but the Tigers went down swinging. With Daw providing a big target up forward, Werribee went toe to toe with Port Melbourne throughout the second half. Thanks to a four-goal to two final term, the Tigers managed to cut the margin to 13 points before time ran out. As well as Daw’s haul, Ben Warren and Thomas Gribble kicked two goals each for Werribee while around the ground Scott Sherlock was a stand-out. The result sees the Tigers slip to a 1-2 win/loss record for the season after three games. When round four gets underway this weekend Werribee will take on the Northern Blues in a night game at Avalon Airport Oval.

Falcons hard to beat down

In the

Doghouse KEVIN HILLIER

Good Friday a mixed blessing WESTERN Bulldogs president Peter Gordon is very much in favour of the Bulldogs playing footy on Good Friday, and when the discussion takes place at the AFL Commission I am sure Peter’s point of view will carry some weight. I am undecided on the issue. I worked Good Friday on SEN and opinion on talkback was pretty firm that there should be an AFL game, but who plays is divided according to your club loyalty. There is an argument that it gives local footy a chance to showcase its competition - and Hoppers Crossing and St Albans have grabbed that chance in the last two years. The clubs have raised money for the Good Friday appeal and played in front of bigger than usual suburban crowds, which is a win-win. I would love to hear your thoughts, especially Bulldogs fans. My concern is that the game will be used as another ‘blockbuster’ game to falsely boost crowd numbers and the Bulldogs will not be seen as a big enough drawcard to be one of the teams. NORTH Footscray Football Club is working very hard to change the club’s fortunes on and off the ground after a few tough years. Former Hoppers crossing players Shaun Borlase and Matty Walsh have taken over the coaching reigns and brought a few of their mates from Hogans Rd with them in David Clonan, Rob Cavka and David Mitchell, to name a few. Unfortunately for ‘Mitch’, his playing days may be over after badly breaking his ankle in round one. Off field they have a comedy night this Saturday featuring Lehmo, Des Dowling and Terry North. Tickets are available through Ashleigh on 0420 673 034. ARE there any more passionate and vocal supporters in Australian Rules football than those that follow Port Melbourne in the VFL? If there is please let me know. While their numbers have dropped off over the years their decibel volume and passion for the game has certainly not waned. I saw this first hand last Saturday when Werribee travelled to North Port Oval. Their boys can do no wrong, even the ones with ponytails. The umpires go from saint to sinner in the blink of an eye and the opposition players are in their sights from start to finish, but it is a great atmosphere to watch the game. The majority of Werribee and Williamstown supporters are quiet and polite. It would be good to bottle some of the ‘Port Passion’ and give it to the Tigers’ and Seagulls’ faithful. THE Bulldogs recently hosted the potential future batch of father-son recruits at Victoria University Whitten Oval. For supporters like me it is the last bastion of the traditions of the game and the romance of it is something we love but the game no longer courts. How good would it be to see these names on the back of a modern Red, White and Blue jumper - Kennedy, Kellett, Romero, West, MacPherson plus another Cordy, Wallis and Liberatore? I hope football never completely extinguishes this rule because it is another unique aspect of our game - and something the rule makers need to remember is it is our game. DAVID Parkin is a great of the game as a player, a coach and a fan and he will be speaking at the Werribee pre-match dinner this Saturday night. Footy fans would be mad to miss hearing his thoughts on the game. Ring the club on 9741 6688.

WESTPOINT

Proud Sponsors of In The Doghouse & The Hillier View

By LIAM TWOMEY CITY West Falcons continued their unbeaten run in the Victorian Netball League last week, smashing Fed Uni Ballarat Pride by 38 goals. The Falcons dominated the match from start to finish and posted some of their biggest scoring numbers for the season along the way. While Ballarat was able to hit the scoreboard, there was no defensive pressure the other way and the Falcons did as they pleased. City West scored 20, 24, 21 and 15 goals in each of the four quarters respectively. Kathleen Knott enjoyed a day out in the goal third, scoring 49 from 54 attempts at 91 per cent shooting accuracy. She was well supported by Alice Teague-Neeld who shot a perfect 18 goals from 18 shots while Julia Woolley was also impressive with 13 goals of her own. The result sees City West move to a 9-0 win/loss record for the season, two games clear on top of the VNL Championship ladder. When round 10 gets underway this Wednesday, the Falcons will take on DC North East Blaze. Elsewhere in the VNL, VU Western Lightning suffered a disappointing loss at the hands of Yarra Valley Grammar Ariels. The Lightning was shut down defensively throughout the match and was able to score just 24 goals. There was no such trouble at the other end of the court as Yarra Valley continued to hit the scoreboard on its way to the 55-24 victory. The 31 goal loss is Lightning’s fifth of the season and puts the club under pressure to make finals. VU is in eighth spot on the ladder and it is part of a group of seven teams from third to eighth fighting for the last two finals places in the top four. This week will see the Lightning take on third placed Peninsula Waves in what is now a must win match.

Savings are off recommended retail price (RRP). Some items may have been sold at some Bedshed stores at less than RRP as Bedshed encourages its stores to offer its products at competitive prices. Sale prices available from 19 April 2014 until 27 April 2014, or while stocks last. Prices may be higher in country areas due to freight. Not all products available to order or on display in all stores. Mattresses and accessories are not included unless stated. Ensembles are pictured for illustration purposes only.
