lubs and anti-doping agencies have led people into hysteria and they have stopped listening to the facts or understanding what these treatments do for athletes’ health. Whether growth hormones, peptides, testosterone or anabolic steroids are involved in the drugs scandal is not yet clear and the Australian Crime Commission, clubs and police have not produced hard facts. So before we go on a witchhunt, I would like to see blood testing that emphatically shows “player X” had “this substance” in their system on “this date”. That would be a more justifiable starting point for an investigation instead of the claims we saw in the media blitz. There is a lot of hot air out there. The question is how big will the balloon get before the truth bursts out? The fact is that peptides and growth hormone are not significantly beneficial in sport unless used in massive doses. Both benefit the player’s recovery and provide long-term hormone support. All athletes represent years of work and money invested by many people, and returning them to the field too soon after injury, with a quick stab of anaesthetic to numb the pain, will result in injury or much worse. We need to look after these sportsmen and women, and you heal at twice the rate if you have hormone levels elevated during that injury period. Stop worrying if there is a very slight, if any, sportsenhancing element – fix these guys and girls so they can play healthier and for longer.

Peptides will certainly play a bigger role in the future of all medicine and we have not even started to discover what they are capable of. Faster recovery of muscles and tendons is just one benefit of peptides. My view is that a player who is deficient in their hormonal support needs to be boosted. And if

everybody is using these treatments in a professional manner, being monitored and regulated, then it is a level and much healthier playing field. I suggest a highly regulated system where every instance of these treatments is recorded to the club, the league, ASADA and an independent objective body not involved in the hysteria.

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

Pavilion ‘dream’ for sports clubs BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au SPORTS clubs are cheering the launch of a new $2 million sporting pavilion in Kew East. Hays Paddock Pavilion has been redeveloped by Boroondara council with new multi-purpose community rooms, disability toilets and change rooms, and featuring state-of-theart facilities for hearing-impaired

community and sporting groups. Deepdene Uniting Cricket Club, Melbourne Deaf Cricket Club and Kew Deaf Soccer Club are among the Hays Paddock tenants welcoming the opening of the pavilion. Deepdene Uniting Cricket Club president John Franklin said the new pavilion was a dream come true. ‘‘We have been here for 25 years and now we have this wonderful environment where families can

come and watch and use the new facilities,’’ he said. The pavilion includes a deafhearing loop device, curved cornices and sound-attenuation systems. Meanwhile, residents are continuing to call for the council to establish a park advisory committee to address any issues that might arise from the new facility, where Deepdene Uniting Cricket Club and Melbourne Deaf Cricket Club have

licences to serve alcohol. Resident Prue Atkins said she was keen to see the committee formed so residents could discuss concerns and solutions with the council. ‘‘The committees provide the local community with a way of always being able to support and protect their parks,’’ she said. A Boroondara council spokesman said an advisory committee was expected to be ready in April.

Kew-based artist Damon Kowarsky is bringing his interpretation of Japan’s intricate architecture to life, thanks to a $5500 state government grant. Inspired by the riverside scenery of Kyoto during a trip in 2011, Kowarsky pencilled a series of drawings depicting waterside vistas. He will transform the sketches into prints after the intercultural project was selected as one of 56 across the state to receive arts development funding. Kowarsky will work with Melbourne-based artist Kyoko Imazu to produce the prints. ‘‘We are developing the prints at Art Vault in Mildura later this year and I am talking to galleries in Melbourne about exhibiting it here,’’ said Kowarsky, who is an artist-inresidence with Imazu at Peter Crawley Centre for the Arts in Kew.

HAWTHORN Secondary College will retain its broad curriculum alongside a possible bilingual program next year, the school has revealed. Acting principal Virginia Murray said the school was likely to introduce two specialist streams – maths and science, and language immersion – to cater for students who had done similar programs in primary school. Ms Murray said parents had contacted the Education Department after reading RL’s report last week about the changes proposed for the school. The school is aiming to lift enrolment from 400 to 600 by 2015 and is considering offering French or Mandarin immersion. ‘‘The language immersion will be only one stream. It will not define the school,” Ms Murray said. “People can choose if they want to be in the stream. ‘‘It will still be a coeducational school, years 7 to 12, but there will be a new direction, and that will start in 2014 with the new enrolments in year 7.’’ ALISON BARCLAY

VOX POP WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO IMPROVE THE MALVERN/BURKE ROAD INTERSECTION? RICHIE CASE, Balwyn I guess the only way you could make a significant improvement would be to put the train line underground. That would at least help ease the congestion a little.

KARINA NORTHOVER, Camberwell I think they should have built a bridge over the top of the railway station. It’s a bit late to do anything about it now.

DAPHNE BISAS, Balwyn There’s so much traffic going through that intersection that there’s not really much that can be done at this point.

Road blitz nabs motorists abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

MOTORISTS in Boroondara racked up an alarming 222 traffic offences in four days during a police blitz last month. The figure was almost five times higher than in neighbouring Stonnington, where 46 car and truck drivers were nabbed, and second only to the City of Melbourne, where 259 offences were detected. Operation Halo saw 1950 offences across Melbourne, among them 431 motorists using mobile phones while driving, and 241 disobeying traffic lights and signs. Other road users in Boroondara were remarkably well behaved. Police saw no pedestrians misbehaving and only two cyclists were issued with notices. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill pleaded with road users to put their gadgets away.

4 BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL

>>

MARCH 6, 2013

TRAFFIC experts are pushing for a co-ordinated effort between the state’s road and transport authorities to alleviate congestion at one of Melbourne’s worst intersections and level crossings. The intersection at Malvern and Burke roads, Glen Iris, has been on the RACV’s top 10 Redspots list of traffic problem sites for the past seven years. Commuters have complained about waiting 20 minutes – and even longer on some days – to get through the intersection. Professor Hai Vu, head of Swinburne University’s Intelligent Transport Systems Lab, said the intersection was a complex case because trains and trams shared the road. “There is minimum interaction between different control and management systems,� Mr Vu said. Melbourne has an average of just 1.2 people per vehicle on the road, according to the traffic expert. “This is clearly not the most efficient way of using roads,� he said.

Creating solutions to improve your space.

“We are dependent on our cars because public transport is not good enough and people cannot meet their needs and because Melbourne has grown very rapidly.� However, traffic could get much worse before it gets better at the bustling intersection due to a proposal for a seven-storey tower at the corner site at 255-263 Burke Road, set to be contested at VCAT. The case will be heard on April 2. The proposal includes 48 dwellings, two shops and 57 car spaces. Higgins MHR Kelly O’Dwyer said increasing density around the intersection called for quick action and investment in infrastructure. Grade separation at level crossings was one of the top six issues raised by more than 2250 residents surveyed by the federal parliamentary member in November last year. Ms O’Dwyer said a wholistic approach was needed by all levels of government on public transport, roads and housing density. “Congestion like this is dangerous and significantly impacts on local business, community life and the local economy.�

Teacher gives fees for a song BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

A GLEN Iris music teacher is so grateful to her landlords she plans to hand over tuition fees from her classes to support their good works. Caroline Morpeth has been running music classes for babies and pre-schoolers at St Faith’s Anglican Church hall in Glen Iris since 2008. From this month, she’ll hold an extra class on Fridays, with all the money raised to help children in the tsunami-ravaged Solomon Islands. “I’ve been hiring this room for years, and I thought it would be really great to give something back to the church,” Ms Morpeth said. “It’s a way of thanking them for letting me have the room. I love teaching these classes so much – this was an easy option.” Off stage, the Tasmanian-trained violinist, who also performs with the Stonnington Symphony orchestra, is a troubadour with her own

Here’s a question even the Wiggles may like answered: What is the secret to keeping a toddler’s rapt attention? “Lots of action songs with lots of movement,” she says. “If I need them to come back, I get them to sing Row Your Boat with actions, and I’ve added new verses like, ‘Row, row, row in a puddle, when you see your mummy, give her a great big cuddle’.” The fund-raising Friday class will be held once a month, from 9.30am10.15am, from March 22 and costs $150 for the year (11 classes) or $16 casual, with discounts for siblings.

BOROONDARA councillors are backing an effort to ensure about 1000 school children do not miss out on marching in Kew’s annual street parade. Kew Community Festival organisers have joined councillors to send out a letter urging local clubs to help more children take part in the parade after it became apparent that Kew Primary, Kew East Primary and Kew High School would not be marching. The schools have withdrawn from the event as teachers continue their ban on overtime hours as part of Australian Education Union stop-work action. Councillors Phillip Healey, Judith Voce and Jim Parke endorsed the letter, which asks community groups and clubs to try to include as many children as possible in the parade. Cr Healey said it was important to find a way to ensure everyone could march. ‘‘It is a community parade and it has always had more participants than spectators because so many people are in it,’’ he said. Parents were prevented from taking their children because of insurance issues. ‘‘That is why we are encouraging them to join in through their local clubs,’’ he said. The Yarra Trams Community Street Parade will take place on March 23, starting at Harp Junction in Kew at 10.30am.

Thieves raid prize garden BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

BOTANICAL thieves have struck again in Boroondara, stealing grasstrees worth $800 each from publichousing tenants nominated for a major gardening award. Khoa Pham and his mother, Mai Huong Pham, are finalists in Victoria in Bloom, a state government competition to be judged this month. Their Ashburton garden, transformed over three years from a mess of hip-high weeds to an oasis of prehistoric and Asian plants, has twice won the pair prizes of gift vouchers. But Mr Pham, who until recently worked night shift as a baker to fund his horticulture studies, said thieves kept targeting the garden, taking cycads, agaves and several mature grass-trees (xanthorrhoeas) that would cost $800 each to replace. He

estimated he had lost several thousand dollars’ worth of plants over three years. “What can the police do? People take the plants in the night, and we will never find out what happened to them,” Mr Pham said. But he was optimistic his garden would do well in the contest and continue to delight neighbours. “Gardening is a passion for people living in Housing Commission [estates],’’ he said. ‘‘This is a small community and it’s great we’re in Victoria in Bloom for the third time.” Mrs Pham, who is blind in one eye, continues to tend the garden despite a recent knee operation. She is proud that her water-saving methods have contributed to a miserly water bill that drops as low as $42. To deter thieves, nursery owners advise customers to dig new plants well into beds and remove tags.

■ FESTIVAL LEVIES Traders in the Ashburton, Greythorn and Maling Road shopping centres will raise $195,000 from levies in 2013-14. Boroondara councillors last week unanimously approved the levies, to be used for shopping promotions and festivals.

All keyed up over public art BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

AMONG the many opinions about public art, a common lament is “it’s just not my type”. But this one is our type – like it or not. Typing Pool, a tribute in steel, bronze and bluestone to the typewriter and all it once meant to Western society, was unveiled last week outside the new Camberwell Library. Designed, made and craned in at a cost of $100,000, its three elegant hammers rise sinuously from the footpath of Camberwell Road, where during the installation sculptor Anderson Hunt listened with glee to the passing commentary. “I’ve seen some people walk out from paying their rates at the office and leaving with a big smile. ‘‘That is really what public art is meant to do, which is to get tongues talking,” the Balwyn artist says. “People love public art or they hate it, which is funny, because they tend not to love or hate asphalt

curbing or other public things. “One small boy said ‘What’s a typewriter?’ As you do, because this is a little story about the past and where we might be heading with communication.” Inspired by a 1967 Brother portable typewriter, Hunt reproduced two keys – the hashtag and the at sign – that have achieved a fresh prominence in the internet age. Between them he placed a pleasantly curly symbol that is used as the command key on Apple computers but which dates to Viking days and is known as St Hans’s Cross. “I wanted to talk about how we communicate using symbols,” he says. “The typewriter also speaks of the history [of the Camberwell Library], which is housed in a 1960s building. It amazes me that in any library there are thousands of books that would have been written on typewriters. We have kept that heritage, but now you can walk out of a library with a USB stick with an entire collection on it.”

■ POLL COMPLAINTS The Victorian Electoral Commission received eight complaints over October’s Boroondara council election. Theft of campaign material and a dispute about counting in Cotham ward, where two candidates were 19 votes apart, were among complaints noted in the VEC’s report to council. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Ricketts Point marine centre bid BY TERESA MURPHY tmurphy@mmpgroup.com.au A MARINE science centre is being mooted for Ricketts Point at the Beaumaris Yacht Club. The club has formed a small consortium with volunteer group Marine Care Ricketts Point and RMIT to investigate establishing an environmentally sensitive facility that would foster marine science, sailing and associated community interests. It would be known as the Marine Environment Science and Community Centre (MESAC). A key focus would be marine research at uni-

versity student and ‘‘citizen science’’ levels. Facilities for disabled divers and snorkellers would be an important part of the centre as Ricketts Point marine sanctuary is the most accessible dive spot in Port Phillip Bay for people in wheelchairs. There are no plans to expand the footprint of the yacht club building but a new design would take into account the threat of sea level rises and other effects of climate change. It would be energy efficient and suit the natural surroundings of the Beaumaris foreshore. A marine research centre has long

been the dream of Ray Lewis OAM, the immediate past president of Marine Care and now chairman of the MESAC committee. Three years ago he proposed a much grander vision to Bayside council, but he is now focused on a much subtler approach he hopes will appeal to all stakeholders.

‘‘This new project will be at a higher level, catering for university student research, a full-time scientific presence,’’ he said. Marine Care’s new president, Michael Coleman, hopes MESAC will be up and running within 10 years. ‘‘We know it will take some time – but just look at what has been achieved with marine sanctuary in the past 10 years,’’ he said. Bayside council will consider the project as part of its Ricketts Point management strategy, now on exhibition for public feedback. Visit bayside.vic.gov.au

Como verdict months away BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

THE National Trust and the Como House board are months from making a decision on the future of the heritage-listed site. National Trust Victoria chief executive Martin Purslow claimed late last year that South Yarra’s Como House had been losing up to $250,000 a year, and $1 million was needed for urgent repairs. But residents’ patience is waning as the house remains closed for day-to-day visits. Toorak resident Lynette Stewart slammed the board and the National Trust for “mismanagement”. She called on the National Trust to liaise with locals and the Stonnington council planning department. Mr Purslow said a solution to the house’s sustainability and financial problems could be reached in the next three months. “We are becoming much clearer about the options available in securing the house’s future,” Mr Purslow said. “We are well aware of the community’s values and we will make any decision public in due course.” The house’s survival could depend on amendments to its planning constraints. Talks with Stonnington council over planning constraints are yet to start. Mr Purslow said that in the meantime, Como would focus on hosting major public events. 8 BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL

Council warns over breaches STONNINGTON council has warned developers and property owners against breaches of planning schemes after a poor year for compliance. Planning officers investigated more than 270 approved applications for non-compliance in 2012. The investigations ranged from minor breaches that were resolved internally to major breaches enforced through the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The figures come as talks continue between council and the family behind housing giant Simonds Homes about a house on the Yarra River in Toorak. Tree removal, additional length to the pool and an outside terrace are among the council’s concerns. According to Stonnington chief executive Warren Roberts, it is “now a matter between council and the property owner”. While some people fail to carry out all conditions of a planning permit, or obtain a permit for unauthorised works, Mr Roberts said some offences were simply due to lack of knowledge about the planning process. “Some breaches are more purposeful,” he said. “Officers may conduct a site audit if there are council or community concerns.” To report a development you believe is not following permit conditions, call 8290 1333.

on and I won. I persuaded them it was too important for Kew Festival to continue because it provided people in the community the chance to show off what they did.” Petrie’s 30 years’ work with the Kew Festival was recognised last year when he was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for his services to the community, an honour he says he was humbled to receive.

Kew Community Festival continues to flourish.The budget has grown to $90,000 thanks to funding from Boroondara council and sponsorship revenue, and there are around 30 events held across the suburb during the fortnight. There are tours of Studley Park Boathouse, Boroondara Cemetery and Kew Police Station, alongside school concerts, celebratory church services and chocolate tastings. Kew Croquet Club welcomes first-timers and open days are held at North Kew Tennis Club.The spotlight also shines on talented musicians, dancers and singers who take to the stage in numerous concerts around Kew. Festival co-ordinator Martin Foot says this year’s theme is dancing in Kew.‘‘The theme was inspired by the Kew Dancing Man Robin Madden,” says Foot.‘‘He danced on the corner of the junction of High Street every day, but sadly passed away last year. He was simply a character of Kew, so we thought this festival would have to be one to remember him by having dancing as the theme.’’ The idea, says Foot, is that each event will incorporate some form of dance and inspire people to get involved. An opening concert and fireworks display at Hays Paddock in Kew East will mark the traditional launch of the festival fortnight on Saturday, March 16. The 2013 event is also set to showcase an Australian first, when Victoria Park is transformed into a world-class stage for the Kewmunity Day on March 23. Dubbed a floating Sydney Opera

lmost 40 years ago, one man set about reminding the residents of Kew that they lived somewhere special. Gerard Petrie, now 78, was Kew’s mayor and he wanted to showcase all the community had to offer. There would be fireworks – although he recalls $500 bought just six rockets back in 1974 – a street parade and concerts. Churches and childcare centres would open their doors to visitors and sports groups would welcome new faces. It would be a festival run by the community for the community. It would be Kew Festival, and today it attracts around 10,000 people. After his first couple of months as mayor, Petrie called a meeting of community groups in November 1973 and began planning the inaugural two-week festival for the following March.‘‘It was exhausting, but it was great fun to see people get together and have a good time,” he enthuses. Petrie’s passion for ensuring the event was a success could not be doubted.‘‘I, as mayor, paid the bills for the festival and it ruined my account,” he recalls.‘‘Back then we only got about $3000 to $4000 (mayoral allowance) and the accountant told me I had no money left. As a result, I think I was the only mayor that didn’t have my initials engraved on a gold medallion on the mayoral chain.” After his mayoral term, Petrie continued to spearhead the festival’s ‘‘hardworking’’ volunteer committee and persuaded the council to provide some funding and assistance for the annual event. ‘‘We called it Kew Festival when we started, then we added the word community in because that was what it was all about,” he says. But after the 1994 amalgamation of Hawthorn, Kew and Camberwell into the City of Boroondara, Petrie had a fight on his hands.‘‘The commissioners in charge at the time said there would be no more events like Kew Festival, as each individual municipality was being phased out,” he explains.‘‘But I took them

indsight is a wonderful thing. It’s difficult to know if the Royal Women’s Hospital realised it was destroying one of Australia’s most important examples of late 19th century decoration when it painted the walls inside Kew’s Villa Alba mansion in 1950.The hospital bought the property as a home for nurses and lavished a coat of paint on the walls to brighten the place up. Since 2003, historians and preservers have spent hours of painstaking work and a fortune removing this paint. The two-storey Italianate mansion was built in 1882 by Colonial Bank of Australasia general manager William Greenlaw and his wife, Anna. Over the next two years, the house was elaborately decorated by the Paterson brothers, who created a variety of painted, stencilled and gilded decorations instead of wallpaper. After her husband’s death in 1895, Mrs Greenlaw sold the contents of the house and leased it out, before it was sold to Samuel Fripp and then the Royal

Women’s Hospital in 1950.Today the house is being restored as a museum. Once a month its doors and gardens are open to the public.

The verdict Considering how popular the open days are, it’s surprising that Villa Alba is only open for three hours a month. Plenty of people are wandering around on the day of my visit, clutching an information sheet given out at the entrance. Volunteer guides are on hand to answer questions and point out interesting details of each room. It’s a shame the rooms aren’t furnished for a real feeling of how people lived here in the 1880s, but the decorative details on the walls and ceilings are seriously impressive, even if you’re not a history buff.

omen losing their identity, men looking for something to fight against, children trying to make sense of an adult world – these are some of the themes at this year’s Alliance Française French Film Festival. Artistic director Emmanuelle Denavit-Feller follows the success of last year’s festival, which had a record 126,000 admissions, with another impressive line-up. Showing 43 films over eight categories, the festival aims to showcase the diversity of French cinema. Asked if there are any particular trends or themes emerging out of France’s thriving film industry, Denavit-Feller is deliberately vague. “French cinema doesn’t tend to follow trends,” she says. “You could say that in last year’s program we had several political movies, but that was mainly because it was a presidential election year in France. This year, we have many comedies, including dark comedies, and we also have

one section dedicated to women, which maybe shows that currently there is something of a focus on gender movies.” Among her festival favourites is James Huth’s romantic comedy, Happiness Never Comes Alone. It stars two of France’s most popular actors, Sophie Marceau and Gad Elmaleh, and tells the story of a couple who are attracted to each other despite their incompatibility. “It’s a terrific comedy about children and what it [means] to have them,” says Denavit-Feller.

MARCH 6, 2013

Romantic films also dominate this year’s festival. Louis-Do de Lencquesaing directs and stars as the main character in the romantic drama In a Rush. He plays the role of a divorced author who falls for a married Italian woman. “Louis-Do de Lencquesaing has delivered a very accomplished film that is both a comedy and at times, quite emotional,” says Denavit-Feller. Olivier Assayas directs After May, one of six historical films. Loosely autobiographical, After May

FROM LEFT: After May; Haute Cuisine; Happiness Never Comes Alone depicts young French artist Gilles (Clément Métaye), who is caught up in a whirlwind of politics, art and sex after student protests in May,1968, led to wildcat strikes and police action, and almost crushed the government. It was a time when “everything, both artistically and politically, was quite upside down,” says Denavit-Feller. Haute Cuisine (Les Saveurs du Palais) is a delicious Gallic movie with mouth-watering visuals that will appeal to foodies. The film, which launches the festival, is based on the true

story of Danièle Mazet-Delpeuch, a modest provincial chef and restaurant owner. In the late ’80s she was summoned by president François Mitterrand to be his personal cook at his official residence, the Elysée. Catering to the president’s gastronomic whims, MazetDelpeuch, played by Catherine Frot, treats the audience to long kitchen scenes in which she lovingly prepares dishes such as brouillade, beef tenderloin in salt crust and fruit of the forest pie.

LOCAL SCENE WORDS AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY STEPHEN MCKENZIE

DECENT EXPOSURE

M

yer’s Autumn/Winter Edit received a spectacular unveiling at Mural Hall last Thursday, with designs fitted to – among 35 other gorgeous clothes horses – Myer ambassadors Jennifer Hawkins and Kris Smith. An imaginative mix of soft and bold designs were on display (did I really just write that?), with a thumping soundtrack, plenty of Champagne and the ubiquitous goodie bag on departure. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Leona Edmiston should be beaming – her latest range is beautiful. More than 350 lucky guests enjoy the after-party. Jennifer Hawkins. Myer’s her store, didn’t you know? Striking model Annika Speakman channelled her inner Cleopatra on the catwalk. I asked Natalie Warren-Smith what brought her to the show. She told me she was Myer’s national marketing manager. That would do it... Honestly guys, some perspective: you’re well paid, good looking, probably do well with the ladies, so how about a smile? At least Kris Smith (far left) is trying.

KRISTIAN SCOTT

Kyrkou ends season with a monster knock BY EWEN MCRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au IT’S not quite on the same level as Michael Clarke’s epic 329 last summer, but at Deepdene Uniting Cricket Club Anthony Kyrkou’s innings in the final round of the season might be remembered for just as long. Kyrkou smashed his way into the club’s record books with 302 not out against Edinburgh in the Merrell Shield, the club’s fourth XI competition, shocking even himself. ‘‘My form hasn’t been great this year,’’ Kyrkou says. ‘‘Apart from the last time I played in the fours when I made 139, I’ve barely passed 20 for the rest of the year.’’ Kyrkou normally plays in the club’s top two sides, but was unavailable for the second week of the final round due to his commitments as a VFL umpire, so he slipped down the grades for a week. Despite the mammoth score, the day started slowly at Kew’s lightning

fast W. J. Cox Oval as Kyrkou made his first 50 runs through fairly orthodox shots. ‘‘I probably blocked my first 50 runs, but the ball just raced away,’’ he says. ‘‘I’m not normally that aggressive, I’m more of an accumulator, but I put the foot down as the day went on.’’ And put the foot down he did. After getting to the tea break on 70, Kyrkou opened up his shoulders to pound the bowlers to all corners of the ground. ‘‘If you go down the grades you’re almost expected to make a 100 so it was important that I went on with it,’’ Kyrkou says. ‘‘I shared the strike around a fair bit before tea but afterwards I farmed most of it. ‘‘Towards the end I was just picking out a part of the ground and hitting it there, it didn’t matter where they bowled it.’’ Kyrkou passed 200 before flying past the previous record of 238 (set just two seasons ago), and at one

stage shared an unbroken 117-run partnership with Kevin Berry in which Berry scored just four. ‘‘I think the partnership was over 100 before he got a run,’’ Kyrkou says. All up Kyrkou thumped 44 boundaries and eight sixes, as the ‘Deeners’ finished the day on 6/415. ‘‘It probably wasn’t until I came off the ground that I started to feel tired, and then the realisation started to set in,’’ Kyrkou says. ‘‘I was probably more excited for the 200 to be honest, but to walk off the ground with 300 was a real shock. ‘‘It was a great night back at the club. Every time I got asked about it all I could do was laugh, it was too surreal.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Tail end saves face

Kew’s season over and out emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au

KEW’S sub district season came to a close on Saturday, falling to Croydon in a light-hearted match at Victoria Park. With no chance of making finals, Kew gave nine players a bowl – including their wicketkeeper – as Croydon posted 7/181 in its 45 overs. Kew faltered late in its chase to be all out for 173, finishing its first XI season on a losing note. Croydon won the toss and took the opportunity to bat on a good wicket, and with both sides well out of finals contention there wasn’t the usual intensity. Kew snared an early wicket through Ben Waterman, but with bowlers only used in short spells the Croydon batsmen were largely able to weather the early pace. Kew skipper Francis Gill and spinner Mark Akrigg were the only bowlers to bowl their full nine overs, with both picking up two wickets. At one stage opening batsmen Daniel Gledhill donned the keeping gloves as Ben Cookson rolled the

arm over, but the ploy didn’t work as he went wicketless through three overs. Chasing 181 Kew started well, with Gledhill (15) and Steven Baldwin (30) safely negotiating the new ball. But the loss of Gledhill sparked a mini collapse as the home side lost 3/6 to fall to 3/34. Gill (32) joined Baldwin at the crease and together they rebuilt the innings, but again both men fell in quick succession as Croydon took full advantage of the good bowling conditions late in the day. There were more than handy contributions from the lower half of the order, with Waterman (48) and Cookson (21) giving Kew a chance of making the total, but it wasn’t to be, as the last three batsmen made just 11 between them and Kew fell just eight runs short of the target. Gill conceded his side wasn’t as switched on as usual, and it cost them at the end of the day. “Our season was done and dusted last week so we gave a few guys a bit of a go and just had a bit of fun,” Gill said. “It’s disappointing to be missing

BY EWEN MCRAE

SO CLOSE: Kew’s Harry Short just misses a catch finals too, especially after playing in the grand final last year, but the other three teams at the club will all

play finals so there’s depth there and hopefully we can get better next year.”

Waves overwhelm Boroondara in opening match IT WAS a fast and furious start to the Victorian Netball League last week, with Boroondara Genesis narrowly losing their opening match to Peninsula Waves. After giving up a big lead early in the match, Genesis slowly worked back into the contest but ran out of

329 Bay Road,

time, going down 41-42 at the State Netball Hockey Centre. Despite a strong pre-season winning four of its six warm up games, Boroondara was slow to get going and found itself on the back foot thanks to some sharp shooting from the Waves.

Down by six goals at quarter-time, Genesis coach Nicole Keegan was forced to change tactics as she threw her players into some new positions. The shifts worked and Genesis controlled the second term to trail by just two goals at half time. New recruit Ashlee Howard was a

dominant force in attack rarely missing a shot all night. A late three minute burst in the third quarter gave the Waves a four goal buffer going into the final quarter. Genesis again picked up the intensity in the final quarter but fell just short in the dying seconds.

A STRONG showing from the Camberwell tail gave it a competitive total in its final round match with Fitzroy Doncaster at the weekend. After making more than 300 against third placed Ringwood last week, Camberwell failed to build meaningful partnerships early and posted 226. The Lions safely negotiated two late overs, and will resume on 0/5. Alex Stanley’s difficult first year with Camberwell continued as he was out early for just one. Marcus Berryman (32) and skipper Simon Hill (40) went about rebuilding the innings, with Berryman the early aggressor. The loss of Berryman’s wicket brought about an all-too-familiar theme for the Magpies, as regular wickets tumbled through the middle of the innings. Camberwell was reduced to 5/96 and staring down the barrel of another mediocre score. At 7/117 Camberwell stopped the flow of wickets, as Tom Rickarby and Simon O’Brien slowly put together an important partnership. On the lightning fast Camberwell Sport Ground, the pair scored the crucial runs the Magpies needed, and when O’Brien was out for 29, James Pearson (29) was also able to see the home side safely past 200. Hill said it was a tricky wicket to bat on, and was happy his side was able to bat through most of its overs.
