OUR COVER: Singh Sabha Sports Club dance group members prepare for a performance. Story: 10-11 Picture: Marco De Luca

Lift the allowance t would be nice if there could be a debate on whether or not the Newstart allowance is adequate without having to endure generalist comments about people being on the dole through laziness. Most people lucky enough to be gainfully employed don’t realise that they’re one bad decision, or stroke of bad luck, away from having to live on $249 a week. It’s an insult to anyone with bills to pay and children to feed to suggest they’re on some kind of extended, government-paid holiday. The reality is days spent looking for work and enduring rejection and having to satisfy tedious Centrelink requirements — which include job network appointments. Then there’s the gamble of living off your credit card in the hope that the elusive job will come before you reach your credit limit. Newstart is totally inadequate. However, raising it isn’t the answer to helping people re-enter the workforce. What the government should do is raise the amount people can earn through part-time work without it impacting on their Newstart allowance. The government should also fund training to everyone, not just those coming off a low base. At the moment you only get funding if your training is at a higher level than what you’ve already achieved. This means if you have a degree you can’t receive funding for another degree qualification, diploma or certificate to help re-enter the workforce in a different guise. The job networks’ so-called employment pathways should include appropriate course placement. If the recipient embarks on approved training or an apprenticeship relevant to that pathway, they should receive a significant increase to their Newstart allowance while they study. How can you begrudge anyone that?

INBRIEF Mayor’s ‘wet balloon’ speech

Link support from both sides Political pressure for construction of the eastwest road link to begin in the west is mounting on both sides of State Parliament. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury has called on Roads Minister Terry Mulder to consider the region’s critical transport needs, spruiking the case for work on the 18-kilometre connection to start from the west end. The road will join the Eastern Freeway, CityLink and the Western Ring Road. In Parliament, Mr Mulder dodged opposition questions seeking a response to his colleague’s calls. But he told the Weekly the government had not decided which stage would be built first. He said the matter would be considered early next year once the outcome of the state’s bid for $30 million in federal funding was known.

‘Gaffe’, so students miss boat an embarrassing gaffe. ‘‘This is an extraordinarily embarrassing slip-up from a government spokesperson that clearly has no idea what’s going on.’’ Mr Martin said that the government couldn’t force training providers to deliver particular courses. ‘‘It is apparent that Mr Noonan can’t handle the truth . . . the coalition government has directed more money into all apprenticeships, including boatbuilding and areas of skills need.’’ Again asked why the government was investing in a non-existent course, Mr Martin used information from last Wednesday’s exclusive Weekly report that the Boating Industry Association of Victoria could become an auspiced training provider. But BIAV grants liaison officer Ben Scullin said the government had made it impossible for boatbuilding training to stay afloat. Mr Scullin questioned why the government was increasing apprentice training subsidies ‘‘for training that cannot possibly exist and then pointing to

BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK THE state government has been accused of investing in ghost courses after the Weekly revealed that a $1 billion injection included funds for courses that have been axed. For instance, from next year there will be nowhere for new boatbuilding students to enrol in Victoria. Seaworks at Williamstown was supposed to have been the home of Victoria University’s new boatbuilding campus before the idea was sunk. As reported last week, government spokesman James Martin said ‘‘boatbuilding is one that will benefit from this increased funding with subsidies for certificate III in marine construction . . . increasing by up to 12 per cent’’. Asked where boatbuilding students could enrol next year, he did not respond. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan, who partly blamed TAFE funding cuts for boatbuilding going under, said the government had been caught out in

the subsidy increase as an example of good policy’’. ‘‘The damage is already done in terms of the loss of new apprentices from our industry, meaning that no training business can possibly take on the boatbuilding apprentice training without incurring a loss,’’ he said. ‘‘With Victoria University planning to rush through the current crop of apprentices by the end of this year, it means there will only be a maximum of four second-year and no third-year apprentices for any new training provider to attract the subsidy. ‘‘How on earth is a training business going to make an attractive business case from four second-year apprentices? ‘‘Our industry will now need to supply around 50 first-year apprentices to deliver a return on investment and that is impossible. I guess that may be the same outcome for other industry sectors and I guess the government didn’t think or know it would happen.”

Feathers were ruffled after Hobsons Bay mayor Tony Briffa thanked Labor at a sodturning attended by three Liberal MPs yesterday. Children and Early Childhood Development Minister Wendy Lovell invited media to the event which marked work starting on the $5.4 million Newport Children’s Hub at Newport Gardens Primary School. The former state Labor government allocated $1 million to the project before losing government in 2010 and Hobsons Bay Council contributed the rest. The centre will house long day care, a kindergarten, maternal and child health services, Yooralla’s Early Intervention Service, Hobsons Bay Toy Library and playgroups. Cr Briffa later posted on his Facebook page: ‘‘I am not surprised my speech went down like a wet balloon with the minister and the two local Liberal MPs in attendance.’’ Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Bernie Finn, also at the ceremony, said on Facebook: ‘‘The city of Hobsons Bay desperately needs a new mayor. The current one does the people of that municipality no good at all.’’ Ms Lovell said she didn’t think Cr Briffa raised any eyebrows. ‘‘I would expect the mayor should advocate for their community. I’m from that community. In fact, I went to that school. The funding is from the taxpayers of Victoria. It’s state funding.’’

The number of vehicles reported stolen increased from 264 to 301, while thefts from cars jumped from 843 to 961. Sixty-eight bikes were reported stolen, an increase of 41.7 per cent. ‘Other’ thefts rose 39 per cent, from 651 to 905. Robberies dropped 32.1 per cent from 84 to 57. Recorded offences of drug cultivation, manufacturing and trafficking rose from 49 to 66, a 34.7 per cent increase. Drug use and possession was up 8 per cent, from 174 to 188. ‘‘The increase in drug offences is a positive result as it represents more people being detected and processed for drug offences,’’ Inspector Mathers said. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan blamed the Baillieu government’s ‘‘inaction’’ for the 20 per cent crime rise in Hobsons Bay and the first crime rise in Victoria (8.2 per cent) for a decade. “We are well above the state average and going backwards in Hobsons Bay.” He said the government had cut $65 million and 350 jobs from Victoria Police and slashed 480 jobs from the Justice Department. A spokeswoman for Police Minister Peter Ryan said the government had delivered more than 850 extra frontline police and 145 protective services officers.

OVERALL crime in Hobsons Bay soared nearly 20 per cent last financial year, more than double the state average of 8.2 per cent. Assaults rose 15.1 per cent, from 497 to 572, between July 1 last year and June 30 this year. Forty-four rapes were reported last financial year, 20 more than the previous year, but other sexual assaults dropped 44.8 per cent from 105 to 58. Four homicides were recorded, up from two. Aggravated burglary [when someone is home] rose 30.4 per cent from 46 to 60, while other residential burglaries rose 22.9 per cent from 424 to 521. Burglaries at commercial and retail premises jumped 27.8 per cent from 162 to 207, and property damage jumped 14.8 per cent from 744 to 854. The biggest jump was in handling stolen goods with 225 reports — a 112 per cent spike. In a statement, Inspector Bill Mathers said the statistics for Hobsons Bay reflected an increase in all areas with the exception of robberies (down 32 per cent). ‘‘Unfortunately, like other areas in Victoria, we are seeing an overall rise in crime rates. ‘‘We have targeted recidivist offenders and high-risk locations because we have found that many of our criminal offenders are repeat offending and often they reside outside of our local area.’’ Weapons and explosives offences

A WILLIAMSTOWN woman who was publicly tattooed at Melbourne’s Federation Square this year says the action caused controversy in her Pacific Island culture. Emeretta Cross, born on Ocean Island and of Kiribati and Tuvalu descent, is about to get the second instalment of her tattoo. Recently named one of Hobsons Bay 20 most inspirational women, Ms Cross believes she could be the first woman of Tuvaluan descent to be tattooed in 100 years. ‘‘I’m the first person to talk about it publicly that I know of,’’ the Footscray cultural consultant said. ‘‘I found out that only the men had it done and it was stopped a little under 100 years ago because the information from the Christians was that there’s a bloodletting [and it] is unnecessary and the body in its form in God’s image is already perfect so we don’t need to actually add or do anything different. ‘‘That’s the Christian recommendation, so our elders decided to stop doing it altogether and they’ve been very strict about that and to this day they’ve not had any tattooing. ‘‘Some of the elders from back home and even some of the women here are saying, ‘who is she to bring this up, who is she to bring the tradition’.’’ Ms Cross said she eventually obtained her elders’ blessing and now others were looking at following in her footsteps. ‘‘It was interesting because they all see me as a mother who is trying to bring something to my son but also, connecting all the women and the other parents who might be disconnected from their tradition.’’ Ms Cross said Tuvaluan body markings showed genealogy and recorded stories. ‘‘And then when your next group took on those markings, they added a bit more of their own identity.’’

Making a mark: Emeretta Cross, with her tattoo, could enter history books.

Teachers backed in huge strike action BY BENJAMIN MILLAR and KRISTIAN SILVA DOZENS of schools across Melbourne’s west are closed today as up to 40,000 teachers walk out in the state’s biggest education strike. Support staff are joining teachers for the first time in the state’s history, placing added pressure on a government that promised to make Victoria’s teachers the best paid in the country. The government is offering a 2.5 per cent yearly rise and demanding productivity gains but teachers want a 30 per cent pay rise over three years and better job security. Yarraville Special Development School principal Allan Cleland said he expected the entire staff of 30 to strike. “This is justifiable action because there was a clear policy from the Baillieu government to make teachers the best paid in the country. Our performance warrants that promise to be kept.’’ A spokeswoman for Higher Education Minister Peter Hall said striking workers’ demands for a 30 per cent pay rise was “out of touch with community standards”.

Squeaky clean Pupils of St Mary’s Primary School at Williamstown last week cleaned up their local beach as part of Kids Teaching Kids Week. Under the national program, more than 10,000 children looked at environmental issues such as climate change, water, waste, conservation, energy, drought, population and pollution. Pupils Jessica, Harrison, Catherine and Grace (pictured) combed Williamstown beach for rubbish. St Mary’s also hosted a miniconference with nine other schools, discussing the state of marine waterways and the effects of water pollution on macroinvertebrate populations. Grade 6 pupil Lachie said he was inspired by his teachers to investigate environmental issues. ‘‘I loved researching my topic that focused on finding solutions to the human pollution problems at our own local Jawbone Reserve.”

“The government is disappointed that the teachers union, despite months of positive negotiations, chose to break off negotiation and pursue legal action through Fair Work Australia,” the spokeswoman said. “They have favoured unnecessary industrial action which has inconvenienced parents and children in Victoria.” Prime Minister Julia Gillard has now revealed the federal government’s long-awaited response to the Gonski report on education funding. The government has adopted the review’s core recommendation that every child’s education be supported with a benchmark amount of funding. Ms Gillard pointed out that targeted funding at Braybrook College delivered extra literacy lessons, computers, an upgraded school library and new science lab. “And it worked. Last year, almost 70 per cent of Braybrook’s year 12 students were offered a place at university,” she said. Premier Ted Baillieu said the Gillard government failed to take meaningful steps towards a new states and territories funding partnership.

Teens told: speak up to beat the statistics PRETEND you need to spew. That’s one way to get out of a car that’s headed for a crash, MFB firefighter Paul Foster told Williamstown High School year 11 students last Thursday. He was speaking to students at a Fit to Drive workshop, a road trauma education program that aims to stop teenagers being overrepresented in road collisions, the leading cause of death for Australians aged 15-25. Victorian P-plate drivers are involved in three times more crashes than experienced drivers. And while Mr Foster’s advice got a laugh, the students fell deadly silent when shown images of a road fatality in which two teenagers in a car boot died on impact. Afterwards, the students discussed who was responsible, the influence of peer pressure and what different choices they could have made. Chaired by former Hobsons Bay mayor Leigh Hardinge, F2D involves university students talking to year 11 students about risk-taking behaviour and looking after their mates on the road. The workshops sometimes have a wheelchairbound road trauma survivor and police attend.

Addressing Thursday’s workshop, Mr Foster said he had been on the MFB rescue van for 15 years. ‘‘I’m sick of turning up at one o’clock on a Saturday morning and having to cut a young person from a car,’’ Mr Foster told the students. He said that if the teenagers ever found themselves in a dangerous situation on the road, he had an idea they could use. ‘‘If you need to make a car stop to get out, say, ‘I’m gonna spew’,’’ Mr Foster said. ‘‘Say you need a burger.’’ Say anything to save your life. Mr Foster told the Weekly that any crash was terrible but one involving a young person was worse. ‘‘Most firefighters, when they hear you’re going to a car crash, the heart rate goes a little bit harder because you know nine times out of 10 it’s gonna be a job. It’s not gonna be a false alarm. ‘‘I think there’s a hell of a difference made by these talks and we get a lot of feedback,’’ Mr Foster said. ‘‘After today, a lot of the kids will come up and talk to us, saying that they liked the session, that they got a lot out of it because they’re actually talking to people who do attend these scenes. ‘‘We can maybe speak in a language that they understand a bit more.’’

Candidate flags mayor’s taxi expenses BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK HOBSONS Bay mayor Tony Briffa has been accused of being the biggest spender on taxis in the council’s history. A councillor from 1996-2008, Carl Marsich, who has announced he’ll be a candidate in next month’s council election, questioned why Cr Briffa spent $875 in one month on taxis and for what council duties. Mr Marsich, a two-time mayor, told the Weekly that Cr Briffa spent $1966 on taxis from February to May, including $875 in February alone. ‘‘I’d suggest he’d be the biggest expender on the use of taxis of any of the councillors who have previously served on the council,’’ Mr Marsich said. ‘‘When I was on the council it was very rare that people used cabs. You might find a $100 or $200 a year or maximum $300 or $400, but when you’re talking about potentially up to $3000 in cab use within a six-month period, you know, that seems to me to

justified, has it been accounted for? ‘‘Has it been in line with the councillor policy in regards to the use of taxis? ‘‘I would like to know basically which council functions he has used

the taxis for and why he uses taxis rather than using his own vehicle like the previous mayor [Michael Raffoul]. ‘‘You get a car allowance for the purposes of using your own vehicle or else, normally, you would get the mayoral car.’’ Cr Briffa said that unlike Mr Marsich, he did not opt to get a ‘‘luxury’’ mayoral car. ‘‘The former councillor is a Labor Party member and [Labor]-supported

candidate at the upcoming council elections, so he’s just trying to raise issues where none exist because I’m an independent councillor. ‘‘Unlike him, I did not take a ratepayer-funded luxury Statesman as a mayoral vehicle. I am an extremely hard-working mayor and work seven days a week, often with back-to-back appointments. ‘‘I usually use my own car but there are occasions when it is more practical to use a cab. These are reasonable expenses and comply with the council’s policy.’’ Cr Briffa said it was his lobbying that had resulted in councillor expenses being published on the council’s website. Mr Marsich is standing in Wetlands ward, which covers Altona Meadows, Seabrook and Laverton. Cr Briffa is standing in Cherry Lake ward, which covers Altona, Altona North and Seaholme. All seven Hobsons Bay councillors are now confirmed to be standing for re-election.

Schools line up in great bullying debate BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK CYBER bullying is a whole-of-community responsibility, winners of the Gellibrand student representative council debate successfully argued on Thursday. The topic for debate was ‘It is the responsibility of parents to prevent bullying, including cyber bullying’. After a closely fought battle, students for the negative side successfully argued that everyone had a role to play, including the media. Speakers for the affirmative side were Braybrook College’s Nhi Tran and Eltayeb Eltayeb, Maribyrnong Secondary College’s Michael Savarin and Williamstown High School’s Hannah Ross. Arguing that cyber bullying should be dealt with holistically were Anna Nguyen of Gilmore College for Girls, Footscray Secondary College’s Rosie D’Argent, Bayside College’s Irena Vecris and Emmanuel College’s Michael Ricci. Anna Nguyen told the Weekly that bullying needed to be dealt with differently because current measures weren’t working. ‘‘I really do believe the community should take Winning argument: Anna Nguyen listens as Rosie D’Argent and Irena Vecris plan rebuttals.

part in the stopping of cyber bullying and actual bullying at schools,’’ she said. ‘‘It is a big problem at our schools. The schools are trying to do something, but they keep repeating every year. It doesn’t do much. ‘‘Cyber bullying, I think, is a really big issue right now because the age keeps getting younger and younger every year. ‘‘I hope the government’s going to do something about it and it’s going to get [bullying] reduced some day.’’ Federal Attorney-General and Gellibrand MP Nicola Roxon, who was on the judging panel, said the government was trying to ensure laws kept up with changing patterns of behaviour. ‘‘But, ultimately, it is a whole-society problem,’’ she said. ‘‘I am convinced by the argument that parents, governments, society, media, everyone, needs to be involved in finding solutions to this.’’ The winning team will tour Parliament House next month, meeting federal ministers and attending question time. Goya Dmytryshchak was on the fourmember judging panel, which also comprised two representatives of the Debating Association of Victoria.

Hooray for T rich, cultural heritage The o Victoria's fastest-growing of m migrant population is adding col colour and spice to life in the 'bur as Sarah Harris reports. 'burbs

hen six men wearing turbans and the trademark beards of their Sikh faith appeared on Australia’s Got Talent auditions it’s hard tto say who was more surprised – those on stage or the audience. audie But within moments mome it became abundantly clear the Bhangra dance group from Singh Sin Sabha Sports Club not only had talent, but an almost magnetic magneti power to pull even the most staid from their seats. “There were 2000 people in the theatre and at the end of the p performance there was wa not one person sitting down,” Gurdip Ahluwalia, a senior member of the Sikh community based around mem the Gurudwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha temple in Craigieburn, recalls proudly. “They raised the roof off. o It was magnificent. It is this sort of stuff that will win people over.” over. It’s difficult to imagine even as little as a decade ago that a traditional dance to celebrate the Punjabi harvest would make the cut for a mainstream Australian television talent contest, much less go viral on YouTube. But such has been the cross-cultural impact of the Indian diaspora c and the globalisation of its film industry that white brides are now having henna parties and footy clubs are staging Bollywood dance nights. In part this is due to the sharp increase in numbers of Indians calling Australia home, with 47 per cent of the 295,000 Indian-born people living here arriving arrivin in the four years before census night last year Many of these newer arrivals are making their homes in Melbourne, with 106,598 people or 2.7 per cent of the city’s population pe now of Indian origin – more than double the number recorded in m the 2006 census. New growth areas like Wyndham are particularly attractive destinations, with a fourfold increase since the last census in four the numbers of residents born in India or with parents born in India.

INSIDESTORY Henna body art by Supreet Tuteja Picture: Scott McNaughton

With the community comes their cultural and spiritual identity reflected in the temples in Rockbank and Sunshine, the shops and businesses like Melbourne Henna run by Supreet Tuteja. The Taylor’s Hill henna artist and businesswoman observes there has been an explosion of interest in all things Indian. “The cultural expressions have been growing, specially this side of town, the western side. It is crazy, right from the beauty parlours to shops selling Indian products and henna art. “We now do a lot of non-Indian parties and festivals and I have also had white brides who want henna on their hands for something a bit different and special.” It’s a far cry from 1990 when the Tiwari family set up shop in West Footscray and theirs was one of only three Indian grocery shops in the whole of Victoria. Now their Bharat Traders grocery store and Bollywood Fashion ‘N’ Beauty are among dozens of Indian-owned businesses in Barkly Street. “When we came we couldn’t even find the Indian rice,’’ Sheela Tiwari recalls. ‘’We had to use the thick Australian rice. That is why we started this business and at first it was very, very small.” And so was the number of Indian residents. “Back then if you saw another Indian on the street you would stop and talk to them because you would hardly ever see one,” her daughter Pratibha adds. “Now, it’s just everyday.” With the support of so many of their countrymen and women it has become easier for Indian Australians to express and share their culture as Sharon Johal, one of the contestants on the recent SBS ratings hit Bollywood Star, observes. “It was toward the my later teens, early 20s, when I actually embraced the fact that I was Indian,” reveals the lawyer, who has family in Point Cook. “Before that I used to always try to make myself look white. I grew up in a really small country town where there were no other Indians. The closest thing to us were Aboriginals. Mum was often confused as an Aboriginal person.” In spite of a typically Aussie name, Sharon recalls feeling her cultural background set her apart.

“It was more ignorance than racism. People just didn’t understand why I wasn’t allowed to go to parties, why I had to be fully covered a lot of the time, or even what we ate. “If one of my school friends came to my house it would be like: ‘Your house smells of curry’ — as if it were not a good thing. Whereas these days people are begging for an invite. They’ll say, ‘Ask us over, so your mum can cook us some food’.” Indian food has been its people’s greatest ambassador as Jessi Singh, chef and co-owner of Kyneton’s hugely popular Dhaba Mill, agrees. “Food brings people together,” he says. ‘’Huge numbers of Australian have travelled to India and become very familiar with the food and the culture.” Indeed, since the ‘70s a trip to India has been almost an obligatory rite of passage for young Australians. But it is really only in the past few years we have started to see the influence of Indian migration on the high street here. “Indian is the new Chinese,’’ Singh says. “Just like in the ‘70s Chinese popped up everywhere, even in places like Coober Pedy. Now it is Indian migrants making a mark.” On of the key factors in successful settlement has been that most Indian migrants spoke English fluently upon arrival. “Indians are smart,’’ the restaurateur says. ‘’We don’t have a language barrier and we can go and work pretty much anywhere in Australia.” Australia holds obvious attraction, particularly for India’s burgeoning middle class, who want to provide the best opportunities for their children, “My nephew just graduated in mechanical engineering,’’ Singh says. ‘’To get into uni he has to pass a test where he sat down with 14 million candidates for just 111 places. He had to beat millions of people just to get in.” Small wonder Indian students are worth almost $3 billion to the Australian education sector. But it’s not just students who contribute to our economy. Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade figures show $6.88 billion went from Australia to India in 2010-2011 in investment and merchandise trade while $20.4 billion came from India to Australia. It’s a very valuable concord. If the relationship between our two countries could be scripted it would be as fluorescent and compellingly kinetic as any Bollywood movie. To borrow an Indian term, these are the desi days of our lives and happy endings, just the thing.

Lab holds key to tap potential BY BENJAMIN MILLAR YOUNG people with Asperger’s syndrome and high-functioning autism are gaining valuable computer skills thanks to a pilot project running in Maidstone. A parent survey about The Lab in June found the centre was having an ‘‘incredibly positive’’ impact on young people and their families. One parent, who visits The Lab weekly with participant Sam, said it made life easier when he was motivated and happy. “In supporting Sam’s passion, it has also introduced me to some amazing and dedicated people.” Another parent said son Alex was now planning out his life as an adult, with a career in IT. “Alex never did that before. Alex is much more confident in his own abilities now. ‘‘This has had a huge positive effect on Alex’s mental health.” The Lab is a collaborative project between Victoria University and Oztron, with funding from the Young and Well Co-operative Research Centre. It has helped dozens of teenagers since it began in 2009 with a VicHealth-funded

Hungry for donations VOLUNTEER doorknockers can do their bit to help Foodbank Victoria make the most of its Urban Street Harvest pilot program in Maribyrnong. The program involves excess fruit and vegetables being collected from gardens in a selected part of Maribyrnong and distributed to people in need FV chief executive Ric Benjamin said it was time to try the pilot out in urban Melbourne after its success in Wodonga. The next step is finding volunteer doorknockers who can discover which residents are happy to take part in the pilot, to run in an area of Maribyrnong bordered by Rosamond Road and River, Gordon and Mitchell streets. The program comes as Foodbank released Australia’s first hunger report, revealing low-income families are the largest group seeking food support from welfare agencies. Foodbank currently provides enough food for 32 million meals a year, or 88,000 meals every day.

Warrington says the event will be unlike anything Melbourne has seen. “I’m absolutely ecstatic to be involved. This is the kind of thing you normally need to get away to a festival out of the city to find, but it’s right here on our doorstep.” The festival will features market and food stalls, a chanting room, meditation, massage and sound healing.

’ve talked about it before in this column. There seems to be a plethora of urban, switched-on cafes opening all over the west and Seddon is certainly getting its fair share of them. Chicco opened only a few months ago in Charles Street. The room has been freshened up, or made more retro depending on your opinion of macrame pot plant holders. The room is liberally dressed with the knotted twine and it works, creating warmth against the white walls, the front bar area and a clutter of bottles and jars gives the room a central focus. Arrive for breakfast and you’ll find well-made Padre coffee (roasted in Brunswick) and a menu that includes lots of good bread from Dench bakery served with various accompaniments — simple poached or scrambled eggs ($9), or house-

I

made baked beans with red onion, spinach and feta ($15.50). Finding ourselves there for lunch, the menu maintains the ethos of good quality produce treated well at a great price. A minute steak sandwich ($18) is impossible to pass on. The thinly sliced, seared beef is just the right texture and tenderness to sink into the good bread and it’s smeared with a good beetroot relish, cheddar cheese, lots of Dijon mustard for a subtle kick served with a side of fries. The menu also features some good vegetarian dishes, a falafel salad with housemade pickles, spinach and a smoky baba ganoush ($15) is a textural earthy dish with the added acidic bite of the pickle and depth of the smoky eggplant dip. The ricotta gnocchi ($16), not the easiest dish to make, is a plate of buoyant and well-cooked puffs of gnocchi with pesto and shaved pecorino cheese. Overall, the servings are ample and generous

Hands-on fun iscover a world of invention at Scienceworks.

Welcome feel: Chicco’s homely decor is matched by quality produce and generous servings. Picture: Darren Howe

and the ingredients well-seasoned and cooked beautifully. Chicco is also licensed with an ever-changing wine list on the blackboard and a neat little beer and cider list where you can enjoy a Kirin beer from Japan or an Italian Moretti beer. It’s that kind of place, broad in its options and good value. There are plans to open nights soon too — watch this space.

Another world away Be transported back in time with this original bluestone cottage with a modern twist, writes Tegan Forder

ombining old world charm with contemporary design can be difficult but this property provides a seamless integration of the two with its cottage frontage and modern extension. In a wide, tree-lined street with grass verges sits a delightful bluestone cottage nestled behind a midst of purple blooms and green foliage. With moss on the roof tiles, chimneys and wooden beams, one could be forgiven that you’ve stepped back in time. Walking through the 1856-built cottage, the period features have been lovingly maintained. There are fireplaces in the study and bedroom. High ceilings, NSW blue spotted floorboards and chandelier lights continue the period detailing. White walls provide a modern, fresh contrast against the striking bluestone-lined interior walls. Through an archway is an expansive open-plan living area which could be made into a lounge or rumpus room or both thanks to the size. Two fireplaces either end anchor the room. Connecting the past to the contemporary is a short bridge through a glass corridor into the 2008-built two-storey extension. Details such as the floorboards and chandeliers continue through but the chic interior is a showcase in modern design. A laundry has overhead wood cupboards while the downstairs

C

bathroom has a freestanding bath looking out to a small private Balinese-style garden. There is also a large shower and a granite and wood vanity, and wall-mounted cabinet. The use of granite and wood continues in the impressive openplan kitchen. The island bench has granite panels on the side and a stainless-steel bench top. The mixture of wood and white cupboards and drawers provides a nice contrast while little extras such as drawers within drawers and a bar nook add an extra layer of bespoke design. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances including two Neff ovens, a Miele dishwasher and a Highlands six burner cooktop. Large windows let in lots of natural light into the meals area and cosy family room. The sleeping quarters upstairs comprise of a study nook, and two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and high vertical windows. They share a bathroom with shower, porcelain tiles and granitetopped vanity unit. The main bedroom has its own balcony overlooking the garden, and spacious en suite with bath, and a rain showerhead in the roomy shower. Large built-in wardrobes provide ample storage space. Surprises continue outside with a paved patio and the opportun-

ity to use use fresh produce from the raised established vegetable and herb garden beds. Children aren’t left out with a cubbyhouse nestled amongst the garden. A beautiful feature of this property is the barn. With sanded floors, beams and a mezzanine floor, the space offers a range of options for its usage from a studio, or more living quarters. There’s a side driveway to an electric sliding gate for off-street parking for two cars. Or leave them at home and take a walk to Nelson Place, The Strand Waterfront, Williamstown beach, botanical gardens, schools, transport, cafes and restaurants.

here’s more than meets the eye with this single-level Victorian house, which has potential for dual occupancy. It includes three bedrooms, a lounge room, kitchen and a rumpus-utility room. Highlights reminiscent of its era can be seen in the bay window, open fireplaces, verandah and high ceilings. In addition a brick unit has two bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room and a lounge room. The location is prime — it’s close to Footscray Park, Victoria University and transport.

Inspect Tarneit lots, for Peet sake These new communities will appeal to a range of families and incomes wo Peet communities in Melbourne’s western growth corridor, Tarneit Gardens and The Rise, are offering large home sites that are big on value. These home sites are some of the largest in the district. There are 15 lots from 438 to 649 square metres and they’re priced between $175,000 and $210,000. Peet Limited managing director Brendan Gore says it’s the last chance to own a big block in Tarneit for less than $200,000. “These home sites are perfect for growing families or people who like a little more room,” he said. Tarneit Gardens and The Rise provide a safe, comfortable lifestyle, he says, and there’s access to landscaped neighbourhood parks, open spaces and sports facilities. Peet’s Tarneit communities are in the thriving

T

city of Wyndham, 25 kilometres west of Melbourne’s CBD. The Princes Freeway provides quick access to the city, while the beaches and seaside towns of Port Phillip Bay are within easy reach. Public transport will be bolstered by the government’s Tarneit-link rail line. “Wyndham is a city on the move,” Mr Gore said. ‘‘The city expects its population to double over the next five years. Our estates are ideally placed to take advantage of that growth.” Construction is also set to start on a new Neighbourhood Activity Centre at Tarneit Gardens, which will include a Woolworths as well as specialist stores. With a selection of schools close to both communities, families moving to Tarneit Gardens and The Rise can enjoy all the benefits of an established community.

Tarneit Gardens and The Rise are ideal for families or people who want a bit more room.

THIS would have been an obituary for the Altona Roosters’ season had it not been for their admirable stubbornness. The underdogs were scoreless, trailing by a whopping 20 points and staring elimination in the face at the halfway mark of the Victorian Rugby League first grade preliminary final against the North West Wolves at A J Davis Reserve on Sunday But the Roosters refused to give in, pulling off a remarkable back-fromthe-dead 32-24 road win. Player-coach Jason Warr told the Weekly that he implored his Roosters players at the half-time break to maintain a positive outlook and keep fighting until the final siren. ‘‘I just kept telling the boys to put a smile on their face,’’ he said. ‘‘I knew we were still in the game. We just had to keep going at them.’’ The Roosters have buried the bad memories of 12 months ago when they were ousted by the Wolves at the same stage. They powered to an eight-point win and now get the chance to meet old rivals Sunbury United Tigers in a grand final clash of the traditional heavyweights at Fregon Reserve on Sunday at 2.40pm. ‘‘All the old boys were stoked,’’ Warr said of the payback dished out to the Wolves. ‘‘I wasn’t around the club last year, but they were quite chuffed we rolled them this year.’’ The essence of this Roosters line-up is its togetherness and hard work ethic. There are no ‘look at me’ stars and no show boating.

They have avoided credible excuses too, like the defection of the so-called stars from last year’s team or the inexperience of this season’s squad. ‘‘It’s just the morale we’ve got, the camaraderie,’’ Warr said. ‘‘We might not be the best side out there, but we’re the gutsiest side. ‘‘Across the board, we share the load well.’’ Warr is confident his giant-killing side can do it once more. They defied the odds to merely make the finals after a topsy turvy season. Now they face a well-oiled Tigers machine who are gunning for back-toback triumphs. ‘‘I’ve had faith in us the whole time,’’ he said. ‘‘Once we got into the semis, I said we’d go the whole way and I haven’t changed that yet.’’ What changed so significantly from the first half to the second half in Saturday’s game that allowed the Roosters to pull off a come-from-behind win? Firstly, they had the aid of a strong breeze after the break. They cleaned up their act and stopped giving away the silly penalties — or ‘‘piggyback’’ rides up the field as Warr calls them — that plagued the first 40 minutes. And they had a young Henry SangYum at their disposal, producing another master class. It was Sang-Yum’s runaway try early in the second half that sparked the Roosters to life. ‘‘He started the charge with a good individual try,’’ Warr said. ‘‘He ran a great line from about 20 out and got over the line.’’

Safe keeping: North West Wolves high flyer Kingi Kani swings Altona Roosters star Aiden Hema in a tackle. Picture: Darren Howe Sang-Yum has been a revelation for the Roosters this season. The teenager is part of the Melbourne Storm’s under-18 S G Ball Cup squad. He also played a big part in Victoria’s under-18 team at the national carnival. ‘‘His ball running and his line and angle running is really good,’’ Warr said. ‘‘His defence is second to none.’’ The Roosters’ match-winning try was scored by front rower Tanahiri

Cahill. One of the premier ball carriers on the day, Cahill made a blindside run and burst through two would-be tacklers to touch down in the corner in front of his club’s fans. ‘‘It was right in front of the Altona crowd, it was really loud,’’ Warr said.

The John Markovski-coached outfit kicked off the scoring on 13 minutes from Andrew Kaine and an avalanche of goals followed, including a hat-trick to in-form star Rini Muriqi and goals from Robert Naumovski and Stephen Dimcevski completed the rout.

FOOTSCRAY is licking its wounds after a failed comeback attempt saw it eliminated from the premiership race with a 30-29 loss to the Moorabbin Rams in the Victorian Rugby Union Premier 1 Dewar Shield semi-final on Saturday. The Bulldogs were trailing by as much as 20 points with a little over 10 minutes remaining and they mounted a spirited fightback that would ultimately come up short by a measly point. Bulldogs young gun Josh Kaifa said it was a show of character from his side to make a game of it late on after such a dull start. ‘‘We tried to pull it back, but it was a case of too little too late,’’ he said. ‘‘To come back like that, down 20 points and with only 10 minutes on the clock, it was a tremendous effort from the boys.’’ The late blitz could not mask the Bulldogs’ miserable start. They were badly out of sorts for three-quarters of the game. It was not until captain Allan Imo asked for one last-gasp effort that his side responded. ‘‘He put the challenge down to the boys,’’ Kaifa said. ‘‘He said we’ve got 10 minutes of our season and we’re not going down without a fight. ‘‘Have some fun and we definitely had that in the last 10 minutes.’’ The Bulldogs bowed out kicking and screaming. Melbourne Lesa and Tuipine Apineru were inspirational in the late stages. But the late flurry of points was not enough and the Bulldogs have a long summer to stew over the result. Still, it was a fine season for coach Junior Naufahu and his players. Given little chance of featuring in the finals, the Bulldogs provided plenty of shocks along the way. ‘‘Our goal was to take it out this year, so everyone is disappointed,’’ Kaifa said. ‘‘But it was definitely a good season for the club overall. ‘‘No one really rated us and everyone expected us to be towards the bottom of the table. ‘‘To make it to the semis was a really good achievement for the boys and for the club.’’ — Lance Jenkinson VRU finals Dewar Shield: Semi-final: Moorabbin 30 d Footscray 29 Premier 3: Semi-final: Footscray 20 lt Harlequin 22

Tardy Gulls now face bigger challenge BY LANCE JENKINSON WILLIAMSTOWN staved off a late challenge from the Bendigo Gold to hold on for a 12-point elimination final win in the Victorian Football League at North Port Oval on Saturday. The Seagulls were seemingly in cruise control holding a 30-point lead going into the three-quarter-time break, but had to endure a tight finish with the Gold refusing to accept defeat. ‘‘There was a bit of tension and a bit of apprehension,’’ Seagulls assistant coach Andrew Mirams told the Weekly. ‘‘That’s because we kept leaving the door open.’’ The Seagulls now take to the road for a cutthroat semi-final clash with minor premiers Casey Scorpions at Casey Fields on Saturday. All the key performance indicators suggested a comfortable victory for the Seagulls last weekend. But their inability to slam the door shut on the persistent Gold made for a grandstand finish. It also led to fluctuations on the scoreboard throughout the game. The Gold opened up a 22 points to two lead at quarter-time, but Mirams was adamant his side was on par in that opening term. ‘‘We had 13 inside 50s to 12 in the first quarter,’’ Mirams said. ‘‘We had as much of the play, but were terribly inefficient, kicked into

the man on the mark and just made some dumb errors.’’ The schoolboy mistakes abated for the next hour. The Seagulls carved out a healthy lead, booting 10 of the next 13 goals, but it was not an unassailable as their true dominance was not reflected on the scoreboard. ‘‘All the statistics pointed to us beating them and beating them well,’’ Mirams said. ‘‘We just didn’t put the score on the board when it mattered and let them off the hook. ‘‘You leave the door open in finals and funny things can happen.’’ There was not a lot to smile about in the Seagulls coaches box in the last term. The Gold got back to within five points and had all of the momentum. That was until a dodgy kick-in presented Seagulls forward Patrick Veszpremi with an opportunity to seal the game deep into time-on and he made no mistake. It was a young line-up the Seagulls

put out on the field with 17 VFL-listed players and an average age of 21. They still had a sprinkling of experience to draw upon with Ben Jolley, Brett Goodes and James Wall having a big impact. ‘‘Our leaders stood up and dragged the group along,’’ Mirams said. ‘‘When the ball ends up in your leaders hands, you get better results and get better decisions. ‘‘Our efficiency came when the ball got in the hands of our better players.’’ Like they have all season, the youngsters had to play their part too. The defensive work of Steven Witkowski, Jack Frost and Jack Charleston was tremendous. In other news, Williamstown has claimed the VFL’s club champion award, the Gilchrist Trophy, for a ninth time since 1952. The AFL Victoria award is decided by the number of combined wins by the senior and development sides during the home and away season, with eight points awarded for a senior win and four points for a development league win. The Seagulls finished with 164 points, ahead of Casey Scorpions (152), Werribee Tigers (140) and Port Melbourne (128). Werribee midfielder Ben Ross has taken home the VFL’s coveted J J Liston Medal for best-and-fairest in the seniors with 20 votes. The top-three Seagulls vote-getters were Jolley (12 votes), Wall (6) and Jamie McNamara (5).

UNIVERSITY student Chris Zucchet lapped up the calmer spring conditions en route to victory in the A grade section of the Footscray Cycling Club’s Salter Memorial graded scratch race at the You Yangs on Saturday. Riders were greeted with the best weather of the season, with a balmy, sunny afternoon with light breezes making for perfect racing conditions. In the top grade, riders tested each other out early in the race with probing attacks, but it was Zucchet, the eventual winner, along with Miles DaCosta and Anthony Garnier, who made the day’s decisive break. The trio swapped turns at holding off the chasing bunch for several laps. ‘‘From the time we got together we just worked really well,’’ Zucchet said. ‘‘We all took really hard turns and there was a strong feeling between the

three of us that we might just end up fighting it out for the win.’’ As it was, on the last lap, the bunch made a do-or-die effort to bring the three back. As the two groups converged, Zucchet got a second wind and attacked again, and remarkably, in the last 5km dash to the finish line, managed to hold off the charging bunch. An exhausted Zucchet crossed the line barely half a wheel ahead of Dom Dudkiewicz with Matt Heath third in a thrilling finish. In B grade, riders attacked as soon as the peloton turned the first corner, and the race was always going to prove a difficult affair. Many riders tried their hand at a breakaway, with Damian Harris, the strongest on the day, Mark Micallef, Bernie O’Sullivan, Jason Southby and

Peter Race, all spending time making a break. Travis Small made a dash for the line with about 3km to go, which saw the strung-out bunch chasing at full tilt for the next 2km and coming together with under 1km to go. In the final run to the line, many riders tried to time their sprints to get to the line first, but it was Paul Sheean who got his timing right, crossing the line in front of Micallef and Harris.

Magpies fire up after shock first quarter for the day,’’Juegan said. ‘‘His ball use around the ground was fantastic and his work ethic is tremendous. He’s got a big engine and goes all day.’’ The cult figure, Mo Khartabil, was a key addition to the Magpies line-up. The powerful forward straightened the team up and finished with six goals. ‘‘We missed him the week before,’’ Juegan said. ‘‘The boys love him and you just know what you’re going to get from Mo. ‘‘It’s not just about him kicking goals, it’s about him bringing the ball down and applying that forward pressure, which he done all day.’’ The Magpies would not be alive today if it wasn’t for the influence of the back six of Darcy McMahon, Drew Vincent, Joe Jamieson, David Da Silva, Aaron McHutcheson and Matthew Robinson. Wyndhamvale was shellshocked in the post match. For the second year running, the Falcons were a game short of playing off in a grand final. ‘‘It’s disappointing,’’ Falcons forward Nathan Evans said. ‘‘I can tell you they don’t give grand final spots away.’’ Devan Ellis was best for the Falcons for his burrowing in at the stoppages and his tackle pressure. Luke Klein-Breteler and James Damjanovski were outstanding with their rebound off the halfback line. Aaron Molivas booted four goals to complement his nifty work on the wing.

BY LANCE JENKINSON THE quarter-time huddle on Sunday proved a sanctuary for Parkside coach Nathan Juegan and his under-siege players. The out-of-sorts Magpies were down in all key elements in the first 30 minutes, failed to make an impression on the goal umpires’ scorecard and found themselves a jaw-dropping 42-to-zip down to a fired-up Wyndhamvale Falcons in a bizarre start to the Western Region Football League division 2 preliminary final at Crofts Reserve. Juegan had no inkling the Magpies were going to break down so easily into what he rated a three-goal wind disadvantage in the first term. ‘‘I was a bit surprised,’’ he told the Weekly. ‘‘I had a really good feeling in the rooms before the game. We were very stagnant in the first quarter and didn’t play to instruction. ‘‘[Wyndhamvale] were pressing up nice and hard and our forwards were getting caught behind and weren’t pushing up or being accountable for their opponents. ‘‘We knocked that on the head at quarter-time and changed our tactics for the second and third quarters.’’ The Magpies reverted to good old-fashioned one-on-one footy for the rest of the day and it worked a treat. They ran out 38-point winners, but only after one hell of a fright. Juegan was proud of the way his players fought their way back from a dire situation. ‘‘To be seven goals down and fight back and win showed a lot of character and a massive will to win,’’ he said. The Magpies were at their breathtaking best in the final three quarters. They outscored the Falcons 18 goals to six in that time to gain a much-needed confidence boost ahead of a daunting grand final bout with undefeated Yarraville-Seddon. Getting on top in the clearances was the key — an area over which they had no influence in the opening term. Ruckman Alex Lockhart was pivotal in

With seconds to spare, Warriors pull rabbit out of the hat BY LANCE JENKINSON HOPPERS Crossing has pulled off a Houdini act to come from behind and upset Port Melbourne Colts by five points in a cutthroat Western Region Football League division 1 first semifinal at Avalon on Sunday. The Warriors extricated themselves from a perilous position with a mindblowing late recovery to book their ticket to Saturday’s blockbuster preliminary final against Spotswood at Avalon Airport Oval. The outlook was grim for the Warriors as late as the last quarter,

after they had trailed by 35 points at quarter time, 28 at the half and 20 entering the last. The Colts extended their lead further with the first goal of the last quarter and the Warriors were at a roll-the-dice stage when coach David Mitchell took control of the situation. Bravely he took Daniel Riosa from full-back — where he was at least on par with Colts star forward Jase Perkins — and threw him into the ruck to give youngster Scott Greenhough a well-earned breather. The move worked a treat because Riosa leaped over a tiring Julier, putting the ball

down the throats of his onballers. ‘‘It was a master stroke move,’’ Warriors captain Brad Murphy said. ‘‘He tapped it down my throat three times and we got three centre clearances. He said, ‘I’m going to tap it here, here and here’ and I just got there and it landed on my chest. ‘‘We got three quick goals from it.’’ The goals to Brydon Coles, his second of the game, former captain Jake Mutton and Kieran Butty got the Warriors to within a kick. With scores level, the Colts had a prime chance to move ahead by six points, but a Steven McAnulty banana

kick went astray and it gave the Warriors a chance to relaunch for one last push for a match-winner. Forward Kade Carey, who arrived at Hogans Road with a big-game reputation, had his chance to deliver. It was a tough kick, five metres in from the boundary and he had to punt it his full range. Carey delivered with a sweetly struck goal to put the Warriors ahead by five points with a minute to go, a lead which stood until the final siren. ‘‘The confidence of the bloke to go back and kick goals from the 50-metre line when the game was there to be

Ready to step up

Vikings fight hard to make history

ALTONA has the capacity to take its performance up another level when it appears in a Western Region Football League top-tier grand final for the first time on Saturday week, says coach Anthony Eames. The Vikings had the more positional winners and better passages of play in Saturday’s semi-final, but it was hard to find genuine four quarter performers, aside from their sturdy defensive unit. ‘‘We had a few guys down, whether they be midfielders or half-forwards,’’ Eames said. ‘‘We’re going to need those players in a couple of weeks to play at their best. All in all, I thought our defence was the better part of our game today.’’ The Vikings defence was underpinned by a heroic effort from Joey Halloran on the out-of-sorts Jason Cloke. He was ably assisted by Joel Magnabosco, Aaron Freeland and David Barnaby, all hardly putting a foot wrong. When the Vikings needed a spark, they had to look no further than exciting half-forwards Travis Lunardi and Steve Kennedy. Lunardi was the man of the moment with four goals, including two late ones that brought his club’s supporters to their feet. Kennedy was the main link between the midfield and forward lines, who never stopped providing a get-out option for his teammates and finished with three valuable goals. Captain Josh Russo was the most consistent of the Vikings onballers and Anthony Chiu, Tyler Healy, Lee Spiteri and Brett Shield showed flashes of brilliance. The Vikings get a week’s break, avoiding the dreaded preliminary final, which was their downfall last season. Eames is sceptical about the benefits of leapfrogging the penultimate weekend of the finals. ‘‘I watched Spotswood last year play every final, and they were all bruising encounters, and come out against Albion [in the grand final] and give it to them quite convincingly,’’ he said. ‘‘I don’t think it necessarily is an advantage or a disadvantage.’’ Speaking for a players’ perspective, Russo is pleased to get the week off to nurse the bumps and bruises stemming from a physical semi-final. ‘‘Backing up next week is going to be tough for anyone,’’ he said. ‘‘The week off gives your body a bit of a break, but we won’t be taking it easy, we’ve got a grand final to prepare for.’’ — Lance Jenkinson

ALTONA has prevailed in a titantic struggle over defending champions Spotswood to move through to the Western Region Football League division 1 grand final for a historic first time. The Vikings held sway for most of Saturday’s enthralling 11-point second semi-final win at Avalon Airport Oval, but could not kill off the plucky Woodsmen until the midway point of a pulsating last quarter. That is when the mercurial talents of Travis Lunardi went to work, delivering a knock out combination with a booming goal from 50 metres at the 10-minute mark, followed by another goal on the run five minutes later. While the Vikings had their noses in front for most of the game, the Woodsmen battled hard to make it a close contest, despite having the burden of being three rotations down for most of the second half, including a gameending hamstring injury to playercoach Chris O’Keefe. When the Woodsmen got to within three points after five-goal forward Christian Elliott booted two goals in the opening two minutes of the last quarter, a comeback was seemingly on the cards. But the Vikings knew what was at stake: a chance to bury the ghosts of last year’s gut-wreching onepoint preliminary final loss to the Woodsmen and an opportunity to be the first team since the club’s arrival in the WRFL [formerly Footscray District Football League] to reach a topflight grand final. ‘‘They certainly came hard at us at the end,’’ Vikings captain Josh Russo said. ‘‘The fact that we wanted to make a grand final drove us. We were never going to give up.’’ This match can be classified an instant classic. The pendulum swung

‘‘It was a terrific game of football from two really good teams,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s what you expect from a oneversus-two final.’’ The Vikings got the all-important jump out of the gates with the opening two goals but in a precursor to what would occur for the rest of the game, the Woodsmen hit back to lead by one point at quarter-time. The second term was all about the Vikings stamping their authority over the game, booting four of the six goals of the quarter to lead by 13 at the main break. The margin blew out to 24 points when Lee Spiteri made a linebreaking run to find Mitch Turnbull with a long kick to the top of the square and who kicked truly. With O’Keefe gone for the game, Jason Cloke hurting with a hip complaint and Luke Ryan in distress after rolling an ankle, the Woodsmen had two options: roll over or fight till the bitter end. They chose the latter to make it a grandstand finish. Goals to Ben Pope and Chase Morgan cut the deficit to 15 at the last change, before Elliott made it four in a row for the Woodsmen with the first two goals of the last quarter. Three points was as close as the Woodsmen would get before Lunardi produced his late show.

My ball: Altona forward Richard Knight shows his appetite for the leather under scrutiny from Spotswood onballer Will Langlands. Picture: Scott McNaughton all game with pressure — be it actual or perceived — at its highest. The WRFL’s newest rivalry is delivering each time the clubs lock horns. ‘‘We’ve had a few of those battles with Spotty the last four times we’ve played them,’’ Vikings coach Anthony Eames said. ‘‘It was a see-saw all day. ‘‘Every time we threatened and got

three goals up, they hit back again.’’ The Woodsmen are no strangers to great finals matches, having played in some of the more memorable ones en route to winning four of the past five premierships. Despite his side being on the wrong end of the scoreline, O’Keefe could still the game for what it was worth.

Division 1 – second semi-final Altona 11.18 (84) d Spotswood 10.13 (73). Altona — goals: T Lunardi 4, S Kennedy 3, Z Kadour, R Knight M Turnbull, J Robbins. Best: J Halloran, T Lunardi, J Russo, J Magnbosco, R Knight, D Barnaby Spotswood — goals: C Elliott 5, M Fogarty, T Baker, E Wood, C Morgan, B Pope. Best: T Langlands, C Elliott, S Wood, M Fogarty, C Morgan, T Baker.

Gallant Woodsmen regroup for final assault SPOTSWOOD coach Chris O’Keefe lauded the ‘‘heart and soul’’ performance of his players in Saturday’s loss to Altona Vikings in the Western Region Football League second semi-final. The Woodsmen were three men down at one stage in the second half after onballer O’Keefe (hamstring), full-forward Jason Cloke (hip) and halfforward flanker Luke Ryan (ankle) made trips to the medical room. Instead of letting it affect their performance, the Woodsmen got back down to business and made a real game of it before narrowly losing to the minor premiers. ‘‘I thought that we showed great character, espe-

cially in the second half of the game,’’ O’Keefe said. ‘‘It was a couple of kicks in it for the day and it shows we’re pretty evenly matched.’’ Lionhearted onballer Tom Langlands produced yet another team-lifting performance to show why the decision to give the home-grown talent the captaincy was the right one. The midfield of Elliot Wood, Jai Audley, Chase Morgan, Torin Baker and Matthew Fogarty worked into the game and never stopped trying. Small forwards Christian Elliott, who booted five goals, commanded the ball in the air and mopped up at ground level, and the ever-present Ben Pope

posed the biggest threat to the Vikings defence. The Woodsmen, who will meet Hoppers Crossing in the preliminary final, will have to travel the same long route as last season via the preliminary final to make it five flags in six years. O’Keefe is not daunted by the prospect. ‘‘I personally like for the boys to keep playing each week,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s good for your momentum and it would’ve been great to secure our spot in the grand final today. ‘‘It wasn’t meant to be. We’ll work through everything and hopefully we can get another win in the prelim final and set ourselves for another crack at it.’’ — Lance Jenkinson
