Kinders and pavilions get a green makeover

Sunday, 19th August 9.00am to 11.00am Friends of Greenwich Bay planting day Meet at the gatehouse of the old Newport Power Station at the far end of The Strand Details: Conservation Ranger 9932 1000.

Twenty three of Hobsons Bay’s early years’ centres and 23 sporting pavilions have recently undergone ‘green’ upgrades. The upgrades targeted water and energy savings and included retrofits, such as: energy efficient lighting; lighting motion sensors; solar hot water systems; window shading; toilet flush reducers; tap flow reducers; efficient showerheads; and efficient tapware. The Green Kinders and Green Pavilions projects support achievement of the Council’s environmental targets, in particular the greenhouse gas emissions target of zero net emissions by 2020. In addition to the lasting environmental benefits of the projects, the centres and pavilions now enjoy lower utility bills. Together the Green Kinders and Green Pavilions projects have produced estimated permanent annual savings of 166 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions (equivalent to taking approximately 33 cars off the road) and 1.5 million litres of water (equivalent to just over half of an Olympic-sized swimming pool).

Sunday, 19th August 1.00pm to 3.00pm Friend of Altona Coastal Park planting day Meet and register at the Ford Altona Road, Altona Details: Conservation Ranger 9932 1000.

Cyril Curtain Reserve Wetland update In accordance with the Hobsons Bay City Council Water Plan a wetland will be established in Cyril Curtain Reserve to collect, treat and store stormwater for irrigation purposes to the Williamstown Cricket Ground and nearby reserves. Under the plan stormwater will be collected from surrounding residential streets, with up to 90 per cent used to irrigate the Williamstown Cricket Ground oval and areas of Cyril Curtain Reserve. This will save approximately 5 million litres of drinking water each year and will safeguard both reserves against future drought. The wetland will also improve the health of the marine environment by reducing pollutants from entering Port Phillip Bay and help restore some of the local plants and waterbirds. The wetland will be built on the Williamstown foreshore behind the cricket ground. It will include a board walk wetland, as well as subtle fencing to prevent dogs and people entering the wetland. Cyril Curtain Reserve will remain closed until the wetlands have been constructed. Subject to weather, the construction of the wetlands is expected to be completed by the end of 2012. For details, call the Council’s Recreation Department on 9932 1000.

Dog owners do the right thing Cleaning up after your dog when you’re out and about is easy. The Council provides more than 50 dispensers in parks and reserves with free biodegradable plastic bags to use when walking your dog. You can also keep some bags tied to your dog’s leash or in a carry pouch so that you always have them with you. The Council provides free dog litter bag carry pouches during pet registrations, on micro chipping days or from the Council’s Civic Centre. Dog poo in our streets and parks is smelly, unsightly and very unpleasant to step in. Dog poo is also a significant contributor to contamination of storm water and the waters of Port Phillip Bay. Cleaning up after your dog is part of being a responsible pet owner. Dog owners must carry a litter bag to remove and dispose of their dog’s poo when in public places. Dog owners can be fined for not complying. For a free dog litter bag carry pouch, or for more information contact, the Council on 9932 1000.

SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

OUR COVER: Alice Pung is looking forward to taking part in the Melbourne Writers’ Festival. Story: 10-11 Picture: Darren Howe

To know eternity, be a weekend patient eems there’s no escaping your genetic destiny. My grandmother became very food-focused after her stroke and so, too, has my mother. This explains why — though she knows she should never do so — my mum attempted to walk unaided and unsupervised across her room to reach a biscuit tin, and how she happened to come crashing down. The fall happened just after 11am. Of course, it was a weekend when people are crashing about doing all sorts of things, which is why it took two hours to get an ambulance to drive her the 300 metres from the nursing home to the hospital next door. The on-call doctor arrived at 4pm. He very gently assessed that she’d broken her arm in at least two places but couldn’t confirm this because the hospital radiology department is unattended at weekends. She needed to be moved to a larger hospital. An ambulance was called at 5pm. One arrived to deposit another patient at 7pm and, just as the paramedics were about to reload their gurney with Mum, they got a code 1 call. At 10.30pm, Mum was finally loaded into an ambulance and at 12.45am she was X-rayed. That allowed staff to remove her torturous neck brace, but it confirmed a small bleed on the brain, which required advice from a neurosurgeon. Just after midday, Mum was moved from the accident and emergency department into the surgical ward. Now, more than 24 hours since the fall, she still couldn’t eat or drink anything until an orthopaedic surgeon assessed her. At 6.45pm he arrived. She will not be having surgery today. Fifteen minutes later, Mum finally has a cup of tea, but something’s missing . . . something from 36 hours earlier. Can I have a biscuit, please?

Bashed store owner wakes from coma

Up for award Spotswood playwright Daniel Keene (pictured) has been shortlisted for Australia’s richest literary prize, the Victorian Prize for Literature. Premier and Arts Minister Ted Baillieu last week announced 21 works shortlisted across five categories, with a total prize purse of $225,000. Keene has made the drama shortlist with Boxman, which was performed at If Theatre for the Big West Festival. Boxman is about a man called Ringo, displaced from his African homeland who has a new address in ‘‘downtown Footscray’’.

Bikie club raided Detectives from the Echo Taskforce swooped on the premises of an outlaw motorcycle gang in Techno Park Drive, Williamstown, about 11am last Friday. A 42-year-old Tullamarine man is assisting police with their inquiries. Detective Superintendent Doug Fryer said the search was part of an ongoing investigation into liquor licensing breaches at motorcycle clubhouses.

‘Save Williamstown’ pledge More than 430 people have signed a ‘‘pledge to save Williamstown’’ from being ‘‘turned into the Gold Coast’’. The campaign by Save Williamstown is in response to the Williamstown tower plans for the former Port Phillip Woollen Mill site. As revealed last month by the Weekly, plans submitted to Hobsons Bay Council show 765 apartments and 25 townhouses could be built on the site, which is bounded by Nelson Place and Ann, Aitken and Kanowna streets.

Getting rid of e-waste Hobsons Bay will start an e-waste recycling trial for the free disposal of computers, DVD players and electronic toys.

BASHED Altona bookshop owner Jill Brookes has emerged from a coma but is yet to speak about the fateful day on which she was beaten almost to death. Ms Brookes, 61 (pictured), was found in a pool of blood at her West Side Stories shop in Harrington Square shopping centre about 3.45pm on July 20. She remains in a stable condition at The Alfred hospital. The Weekly understands she can see, hear, recognise and understand things, but has not yet spoken. Detective Sergeant Brad

Lawrence, of the Hobsons Bay crime investigation unit, said police were waiting for her condition to improve before trying to communicate with her. ‘‘She’s improving, I’m told, daily, and it’s just a matter of time to see whether we’ll be able to speak with her at some stage,’’ he said. ‘‘We understand that her health is of most importance and we’ll be guided by the hospital and the family as to when will be the best time to speak with her. ‘‘We’re maintaining an open mind on what’s taken place.

‘‘The investigation is ongoing. We’re investigating all motives. Police certainly believe it is an isolated incident. ‘‘We would be interested in speaking to anyone in the Altona area who may have personal or private CCTV footage external to their house.’’ A Facebook post by Altona Village Traders Association about Ms Brookes’ improved condition had received more than 140 ‘likes’ as of yesterday. One person posted: ‘‘Gee I hope she can recognise the person/

persons who done this when she is better.’’ Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to the website at crimestoppers.com.au — Goya Dmytryshchak

One step forward, two back BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK MIDWAY through term 3, a Williamstown mother says her teenage son with autism will never catch up on missed schooling after his integration aide funding was halved. Raelene McDonald’s son Luke Schroder is in year 9 at Williamstown High School, but is now averaging about two days of school a week. As reported by the Weekly, the school had matched Luke’s state government funding so he could attend school with an aide four days a week. But the school’s budget was on a ‘‘razor’s edge’’ after the government slashed $40,000 from the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning program. ‘‘He’s never going to catch up,’’ Ms McDonald said. ‘‘He’s just getting further and further and further behind. ‘‘To me, Luke going to a mainstream school is not only about academics, it’s also about the social aspects. ‘‘He is regressing in his communication, eye contact, the way he even speaks to people — he’s becoming abrupt and rude . . . he’s certainly regressed in his social skills.’’

August 15, 2012

Going backwards: Raelene McDonald says the Education Department has failed her son Luke Schroder. Picture: Michael Copp Education Department spokeswoman Jane Metlikovec said a departmental psychologist would ‘‘continue weekly meetings at Williamstown High School regarding the best support for Luke’’. Ms McDonald said the departmental psychologist had met her only twice this year, the second time on Monday this week.

She fears that Luke won’t be able to fulfil his dream of completing his VCAL. ‘‘If he’s not capable of being independent in the classroom he can’t do VCAL,’’ Ms McDonald said. ‘‘We have to have the ID [intellectual disability label] to get to a special school — they won’t take a child just based on autism, they have to have an intellectual disability as well.’’ Ms Metlikovec denied that the department was failing students like Luke. ‘‘As autism diagnoses rise, so does the department’s support for students with autism spectrum disorder,’’ she said. ‘‘In addition to the Victorian government’s recent announcement that a new P-12 autistic school will be built in Laverton, the department is continuing its support for Western Autistic School and the outreach programs it runs to support students in mainstream schools, such as Williamstown High School.’’ Ms Metlikovec said online training in teaching students with autism was available to all Victorian teachers. State Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said Luke was an ‘‘innocent victim’’ of education funding cuts.

Mr Lindner said he was angry that despite Liberty’s Oil’s side of the story, the fuel he bought for sampling was sold under a Liberty banner stating: “Quality Fuel Guaranteed”. ‘‘The biggest disappointment to me is identifying the fuel, ringing the company involved which was Liberty Fuel, finally getting hold of the Victorian representative who came out and checked the tank and he said it didn’t indicate water. ‘‘Well, it has got a lot of water in it — it’s got 21 times the allowable limit of water. ‘‘I finished up getting onto a federal department that has the responsibility for fuel quality, but they’re saying they don’t have enough fuel inspectors to cover the country. ‘‘My mission [is] to stop other people getting

into the predicament that we’ve been in.’’ After being approached by the Weekly, Mr Rupana agreed to lodge an insurance claim to cover Mr Lindner’s costs, which amount to more than $5000 but could rise if his engine needs to be rebuilt. Mr Rupana said he realised in December there was a pipeline leak after customers complained. ‘‘The issue was basically we had actually the underground pipeline leaking and we spent around $18,000 to fix that underground pipeline and it’s all absolutely fine now. ‘‘We had actually a couple of vehicles’ [owners] complaining to us about the issue and we had actually gone ahead with the public liability insurance and actually given them . . . the claims regarding that.

‘‘This thing, like underground thing, can go wrong anywhere. It’s any petrol station. It can go anywhere wrong and the main concern [is] to actually fix that issue, which we already did. ‘‘I’ve got paperwork to prove that the pipeline has been fixed. I’m happy if someone has actually complained [to] you, I’m more than happy to actually get that person fully satisfied with actually the quality of fuel and also if he underwent some losses we can actually certainly cover that and also we can get him satisfied with the quality of fuel.’’ Katherine Philp, a DSEWPC spokeswoman, said that in the 2011-12 financial year, the department received 281 fuel quality complaints across Australia and conducted 2792 tests from 1071 fuel suppliers. She said warning letters were sent for first-time breaches and monitoring of the site increased. “Action escalates with a repeat offence or more serious breaches. In some cases, the department may seek an interim or permanent injunction from the Federal Court to ensure that no further fuel is supplied.” Consumer Affairs Victoria spokeswoman Samantha Gunner said the federal government was responsible for fuel quality, but retailers were responsible for the fuel they sold. ‘‘It’s an offence for a supplier to sell contaminated fuel.’’ In 2011-12, Consumer Affairs received 96 inquiries and 20 complaints on the issue. It will investigate a supplier if there are multiple complaints about the same outlet, the Weekly understands.

A NEWPORT motorist whose Range Rover engine was damaged by contaminated fuel has acted to protect other consumers from landing in the same predicament. Ray Lindner, a former diesel mechanic and honorary assessor for the National Association of Testing Authorities, says he was sold diesel at a Liberty service station at the corner of Maddox Road and Mason Street, Newport. Liberty Oil’s national co-ordinator, Syd Berry, denied the contaminated fuel at issue was Liberty’s. ‘‘This claim about contaminated diesel relates to supply from a period before the Liberty branding and supply of the site,’’ he said. ‘‘We have requested the site operator lock the pumps until the product meets quality standards and told him we will not supply any diesel until this occurs.’’ The Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce said the Liberty service station was not a member. The Commonwealth fuel regulator is the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWPC). The Weekly understands it has only two investigators to cover all of Australia. Service station owner Harmeet Rupana says he is as much a victim as Mr Lindner, adding that the fuel contamination was caused by a leaking pipeline. Mr Rupana agreed to compensate Mr Lindner after the latter commissioned a report from independent laboratory Tec Check, via Cummins Diesels at Laverton. ‘‘The people at Cummins Diesels stated that it was the worst case of contamination they had seen,’’ Mr Lindner said. In his report this month, laboratory manager Deepal Patel stated: ‘‘On the basis of the testing, the fuel is considered not suitable for use as automotive diesel fuel as moisture content is high’’. Mr Lindner’s diesel fuel system repairer, John Diesel at Hallam, confirmed there had been ‘‘water contamination’’ through the Range Rover’s injectors, causing them to rust.

‘I finished up getting onto a federal department that has the responsibility for fuel quality, but they’re saying they don’t have enough fuel inspectors to cover the country.’ - Ray Lindner

Werribee ferry plan back on the table

SERVING LOCALS

BY LAURA LITTLE

• Pre paid funerals • Personalised service • Australian owned

A STUDY investigating the feasibility of a Sydney-style commuter ferry for the western suburbs is about to begin. It’s three months since Planning Minister Matthew Guy announced the government would look into the possibility of a ferry service operating from Werribee to the city. He said the proposed service would be run by a private company, with ferries stopping at Werribee South, Point Cook, Altona and Williamstown. The ferries would tie up at Docklands or at a terminal near Flinders Street railway station. Under the $300,000 study’s terms of reference, the service would be viable only if trips took less than an hour, had reasonable ticket prices and could attract enough passengers. The idea of a ferry from Werribee to the CBD was first raised in 2008. A Transport Department study completed in the same year found commuter ferries on the bay would lose thousands of dollars a day.

Western Suburbs Tel: (03) 9689 2199 G5074277AA-a2May©FCNVIC

Mr Guy said the government expected a different outcome from the new study. He said the 2008 investigation examined only the feasibility of running a ferry from Portarlington to the city. ‘‘This proposal is different because the Portarlington ferry was servicing a population base much smaller,’’ he said. ‘‘This would be a western transport service that would be servicing a much larger population.’’ Mr Guy expected the study would be completed in three months, with a draft report presented to State Parliament by the end of the year. He said the study would also look at infrastructure needed to transport people to ferry terminals. Mr Guy said Werribee South residents were understandably concerned about the ability of local roads to cope with increased traffic. Residents have requested a free car park for the area before the project proceeds.

I am delighted to report that the new $7.8 million Williamstown Library will open in September. With more than 1,400 square metres over two floors, the state-of-the-art library is much larger than the previous 1960s building which stood on the site. It will incorporate many new features such as a Family and Local History room and has a design that references Williamstown’s rich heritage of seafaring and railway. Much care was taken to protect the famous golden elm on Ferguson Street with the lovely tree becoming the centrepiece of attractive landscaping that includes decking at the front and rear. The tall jacaranda at the back also forms part of the new landscaping, with additional trees being planted in large tubs to screen the library visitors from the car park. The outdoor deck is set to become a great new space where visitors can sit and read and admire the lofty arched windows of the Town Hall ballroom. Befitting a 21st century public library, the design incorporates a flexible exhibition and performance space, self serve check out; internet access; shelf space for up to 35,000 items, and a cafe. The contemporary design is by Sally Draper and Mitsouri Architects and construction was by local company Devco Constructions, which also built Altona North library. The building boasts the very latest in sustainable design such as solar panels and thermal mass walls plus hearing loops, a bike rack, a hydraulic lift and hoist in the accessible toilet and integrated ramps to the outdoor decks. A lift connected to a glazed walkway links the library to the Town Hall. In more good news, the Council is trialling an e-waste collection to help householders deal with a mounting problem of electronic waste. You can bring your unwanted televisions, computers, DVD players and microwaves to the Council Depot in Sugar Gum Drive, Altona on Saturday, 8th September between 8.00am and 3.00pm. For a full list of acceptable items, and drop-off limits, go to www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/e-waste or call 9932 1000. Finally, the Council has spent the last few months improving Robertson Reserve oval next to Williamstown Primary School. The old synthetic wicket has been replaced, the ground reshaped and new irrigation put in to water the newly sawn warm season grass. The new oval looks terrific and we will be able to enjoy this popular public reserve very soon. Thanks to everyone, including the nearby schools, for their patience.

BY NICK TOSCANO WHEN fire crews arrived at her Laverton house earlier this month, Karen refugee Lor Na was waiting patiently by the letterbox with her family. She had safely carried her six-year-old son, while helping her eldest son, 11, and frail 80-year-old father out of the burning Bladin Street house after hearing a smoke alarm in the middle of the night. Lor Na, who fled Burma six years ago and speaks limited English, had only recently been at an MFB seminar where she learned about dialling triple-0. The seminar was aimed at breaking down language barriers to achieve fire safety. ‘‘I heard the smoke alarm and ran to my kitchen and I saw the fire on the electric chord on the kettle,’’ she said through an interpreter. ‘‘I tried to stop the fire, but it was getting bigger so I called triple-0. The whole house was filled up with smoke; my body was full of smoke. ‘‘My youngest son, I had to carry him to the bus stop [outside] and then he woke up from his sleep.’’ Once the fire was extinguished, MFB western district multicultural liaison officer Colin Campbell said he received a call from an officer saying: ‘‘You won’t believe it. All she could remember was being taught when the smoke alarm goes off, get them all out, stay out the front and stay together.’’ Mr Campbell, one of five MFB multicultural

A lot of these newly arrived people have grown up in countries where there’s no power and no gas, so a lot of this is about educating them to prevent fires.’’ Last week in Laverton, the MFB presented Lor Na with a fire extinguisher and smoke alarms.

AN Altona biscuit maker has told its 105 staff that their plant will shut and their jobs will go, with 80 per cent of manufacturing now done in Melbourne to be sent to Malaysia. Some jobs are likely to be absorbed by Kerry Ingredients’ New South Wales and Queensland factories. National Union of Workers state secretary Tim Kennedy said Premier Ted Baillieu should be doing more to protect Victoria’s manufacturing industry and TAFE training courses. ‘‘Does the Victorian government have a plan for fostering good Victorian jobs now and into the future?’’ he asked. Kerry Ingredients has confirmed the Altona plant’s closure, and a spokeswoman said the company would soon provide a statement giving details of the job losses.

Gas too close for comfort BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

Information ‘invalid’

WORKSAFE has advised Hobsons Bay Council to find out how a company wanting to fumigate containers with a toxic gas at Spotswood plans to prevent, detect and contain any leaks. About 200 submissions have been lodged over Container Fumigation Services’ plans to set up a methyl bromide operation at 407 Douglas Parade, which is about 250 metres from Newport homes and close to parks, sports clubs, kindergartens, schools and the Scienceworks museum. The legal buffer zone for methyl bromide is 1000 metres. Methyl bromide is a colourless, odourless ozone-depleting gas banned in many OECD countries and linked to deaths from motor neurone disease. A Facebook group, Keep Methyl Bromide out of Hobsons Bay, has started with members ‘letterboxing’ 1500 households to lobby against the CFS bid. In a letter seen by the Weekly, WorkSafe acting chief executive Ian Forsyth advises the council to request CFS demonstrates how it plans to detect and prevent leaks and notify neighbours who would be affected by the release of methyl bromide. The Weekly has learned the methyl bromide proposal does

REPORTS of a ‘‘rotting meat’’ smell at Brooklyn late last Thursday will not be investigated by the EPA because ‘‘invalid’’ information was provided by five people who called the pollution hotline. Hobsons Bay councillor for Altona North, Michael Raffoul, said it was ‘‘very disappointing’’, given he was one of the residents who called. EPA spokeswoman Lauren Wall said the EPA received 355 pollution reports for Brooklyn from January to June. ‘‘We remind the community that valid contact details including location of caller is required in reporting to EPA’s Pollution Hotline on 1300 372 842.’’ Ms Wall said two of the five callers gave their details but were unable to pinpoint the source of the odour. As a result, EPA will not follow up. Cr Raffoul said the EPA must revisit the guidelines currently in place.

not need EPA licensing. In a letter, EPA chief executive John Merritt says methyl bromide fumigation is not a scheduled activity under environment protection regulations. ‘‘As a result, fumigation premises do not require an EPA works approval or EPA licence to operate. Operating without a planning permit is a matter for the planning authority.’’

Welcomed to kennel TWO Doggies’ fans will be part of the action at Sunday’s Western Bulldogs versus Sydney Swans AFL clash at Etihad Stadium. Long-term Western Health patient, Altona’s Clive Pattie will toss the coin before the opening bounce, while seven-year-old Declan Ford will run out with the players in front of his terminally ill grandfather, who will be at the game. The junior mascot’s name was drawn from more than 80 entries in a competition by Western Health Foundation, which is hosting the round 21 match. Mr Pattie was rushed to Western Hospital’s intensive care unit in late 2008 suffering a cardiac arrest, before having a stroke that put him in a coma. “I’m still coming down from outer space,” he said. ‘‘I am so glad it’s the Bulldogs versus the Swans as, apart from being a Bulldogs supporter, I have a connection with both clubs. ‘‘My great uncle George Farnsworth, who was mayor of Footscray, was also president of the Footscray Football Club in 1924 when they transitioned from what was the VFA to

Writes of passage About 350 writers will be involved in this year’s Melbourne Writers’ Festival, which runs for 11 days from August 22. Claire Knox talks to three of them from Melbourne’s west. LICE PUNG’S melodic tone lifts slightly when she recalls a childhood memory of Footscray’s shopping mall, the first of its type in Australia when it opened in 1975. Alice and her grandmother would sit on a bench among the languid junkies, clusters of chatting Vietnamese women and businessmen in ill-fitting suits, observing the concrete madness and waiting for sprawling department store Forges to open. “We’d sit outside, by a fountain, called Dolphins Alive I think, that has never been in operation while I’ve been alive.” Pung, a lawyer, teacher and award-winning author, says idiosyncrasies like the fountain and the mall, and the working class and migrant roots so intrinsic to Footscray have shaped her writing immeasurably. The 31–year-old wooed literary critics, publishers and readers alike with her coming-of-age memoir Unpolished Gem, which scored her the 2007 Newcomer of the Year Award in the Australian Book Industry Awards, following up with Her Father’s Daughter, the poignant tale of her father Kuan’s horrific experiences enduring the Khmer Rouge dictatorship. Pung’s mother was eight months’ pregnant with Alice, her first child, when she and Kuan arrived in Melbourne. Both Cambodian refugees with Chinese heritage, they had fled war-torn Cambodia and spent a year in a stifling Thai refugee camp. Now a writer in residence at Melbourne University’s Janet Clarke Hall, Pung will speak to throngs of children, teenagers and teachers at the festival. Pung says growing up in the west’s bosom meant she perceived its multiculturalism to be the norm. “Before I went to university I didn’t really realise other places were so different. “You grow up thinking the rest of Australia is diverse too - brown, black, white, yellow - but it’s not at all, it’s very Anglo-Saxon, particularly in pop culture representation.

“It really is one of the most interesting areas in Melbourne. The culture changes every decade due to the different waves of migration, Greek and Italian, Vietnamese, African, and Indian. Sometimes people ‘talk’ about multi-culturalism, but in Footscray people just live it. There are African people buying Chinese food, Vietnamese eating Indian, it’s not as segregated. “The west is more diverse than its bad representation and it’s important to move away from the generalisation that it’s grotty. But of course that’s also the drawcard. “I’m glad I wrote Unpolished Gem at the age I did, before I had really left the west and before I learnt about literary place and theory, because if I did know those things the book would have been more contrived and not about family and love and people.” Yarraville writer John Weldon spent his first few years in Australia, after arriving as an English migrant, in a symmetrical brick set of Braybrook commission flats, flanked by factories and weatherboard, working-class homes. He believes the cultural and physical landscape of the west provided him with a sense of dislocation from other parts of the city, peering through a looking glass which provided the perfect writing environment. “As a writer it gives you a great place to start from. If you can observe things and put a little bit of distance between you and your subject it helps you to be clearer.” Growing up as a migrant, Weldon felt he was floating in a grey, murky sea, where he found it hard to identify as English or Australian. “In literature, there is often an idea of the ‘other’ - you know this is us here and there are those over there and there are those who came to our country on boats. Growing up here you’re certainly outside the mainstream. “That certainly helped shape the way I looked at institutions, at being a man, being a migrant, even though there wasn’t a huge cultural difference. “I think a lot of people in the west are constantly in that ‘other’ space, and as a writer or artist that is a huge, huge influence.’’ For Weldon, a tangible symbol of that separation was always the West Gate Bridge, the “idea of having to get over that bridge to get ‘there’.” “Everywhere you turn in Seddon and Yarraville, or from the Williamstown foreshore, you can see Melbourne looming in the distance.’’ A former Fairfax journalist and a lecturer in professional and creative writing at Victoria University, Weldon will launch his latest novel, Spin Cycle, at the Writers’ Festival. “It’s a coming-of-age story and a love story,


INSIDESTORY

If you can observe things and put a little bit of distance between you and your subject it helps you to be clearer. exploring truth and identity. It’s about a man who is about to become a mouse, he’s on the verge of 30, but can he take the next step and grow up or continue to drift.” He says he has written a slew of short stories set in the west. “I mean I have a huge working-class chip on my shoulder. I just can’t shift it,” he concedes with a smirk. “I always wanted to be a writer as a kid, but it just seemed, living in Braybrook, that I may as well have wanted to be an astronaut. I had no idea how I could do it.’’ But Weldon’s flair was recognised and he picked up a column in the Western Times, writing a sportsbased commentary on his surrounds, and later filing opinion pieces for The Age (which he still does) and freelancing as a food critic for the same paper. “Even in my food writing I wrote about the great Vietnamese and Ethiopian places in the western suburbs, which is what they wanted I suppose, that different angle.’’ Murray Middleton stands dreamily in a vast and sparse factory room, watching through the ceiling’s glass windows storm clouds roll in over the city skyline. The building is Kensington’s creative hub the Younghusband, a space Middleton knows intimately, having worked for theatre set design company Scenic Studios, painting sweeping canvas backdrops for Australian Ballet productions like The Nutcracker and Wicked. The 28-year-old Fitzroy writer has worked in Kensington and Flemington for more than eight years now, in the Younghusband building, at independent book store Wayward Books and now as an integration aide at Mount Alexander College. Middleton garnered literary recognition after winning The Age short story competition last year for his melancholic tale of a middle-aged newspaper editor and his drug-addicted sister’s journey through central NSW to a rehabilitation centre. Although much of his writing to date has been set across sweeping rural highways and terrains, he says the grittiness of the inner north-west is now unconsciously seeping into his narratives. Middleton is compiling an anthology of shorts stories, a number of which are set in the west. “My time here has had a huge influence… that (Younghusband) building itself is incredible, both visually and culturally. There are so many creative and eccentric people, and I feel like I’ve explored every nook and cranny of it.’’ For further information on the Melbourne Writers Festival go to www.mwf.com.au

WESTERN suburbs politicians are trading barbs over the future of dental services at Footscray’s Western Region Health Centre. The Weekly last week reported that Greens MP Colleen Hartland will implore the need for action to prevent the clinic closing. But Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury said Ms Hartland needed to outline what exactly she wanted the government to fund. ‘‘Ms Hartland continues demanding ‘something’ to be done but doesn’t seem to know what that ‘something’ is.” Mr Elsbury, who chaired a taskforce investigating the health centre’s problems, said it was hypocritical for Labor and the Greens to call for action ‘‘while they sat idle for 11 years’’. ‘‘The dental clinic can’t be fixed by rhetoric,’’ he said. ‘‘What’s needed is sound planning and a business case to support the great work being done by the staff at Western Region Health.” But Ms Hartland said there was a redevelopment plan ready to begin. “All that is needed is the Baillieu government to commit a moderate $9 million to rebuild the clinic and continue to provide quality dental health services in the west,’’ she said. “Mr Elsbury and the Baillieu government have failed to invest in dental health and Victoria’s projected dental waiting list times are set to explode, increasing 30 per cent in one year to an average of 22 months.”

And he invites diners to celebrate with him. How better to honour the special day when India became free from Britian’s reign than to enjoy Indian food cooked by Pardeep, with his wife Mona taking care of the hospitality. ‘‘I love cooking something nice for our customers and feel I am doing something good,’’ head chef Pardeep says. ‘‘We have 20 years’ experience running an Indian restaurant, but this year is particularly special as we recently became a finalist in Menulog’s Tasty Takeaway Awards for 2012.’’ The menu includes a tandoori platter — tandoori chicken malai, chicken tikka, kashmiri chicken,

Past with promise of future There is potential to renovate, including a second-storey extension, writes Tegan Forder ovingly maintained, ‘Penagraig’ is just waiting for a few more additions to turn it into the complete package for a family of any size. The lilac grey fretwork, picket fence and neat front garden are charming features of this cute-as-a-button dwelling with plenty of potential. It’s around the corner from Williamstown Road and close to Yarraville and Seddon villages. Owners Richard and Kirsten say the period style of the home, combined with it’s location, make it the perfect choice for buyers wanting the Yarraville village lifestyle. Period features inside can be seen in the ceiling rosettes, oldfashioned light switches, picture rails and leadlight windows. Such features are evident in the two spacious bedrooms. The front room has an original fireplace and beautiful leadlight windows. A leadlight door at the end of the hallway opens to a cosy lounge room with a gas heater in the fireplace.

L

Dinner parties will be a breeze with a designated dining room, with traditional wood panelling, just off the kitchen. The kitchen and adjacent bathroom have both been renovated and are now bright and contemporary spaces. Wood-topped white painted cabinets and a stand-alone cooker are kitchen inclusions, while plenty of room remains for additional appliances. A bath, square-basin vanity unit and towel racks are highlights of the gleaming bathroom. The laundry is quite spacious and there’s a separate toilet at the back of the house. It’s at the back here where new owners can really add their own touch with renovations, subject to council approval. Architect-designed plans for a second-storey extension (STCA) are available to view. The low-maintenance courtyard which catches the northern sun, is concreted and there is a garden shed and established garden boxes waiting to be planted with herbs and flowers.

Footscray flies with flair in derby BY LANCE JENKINSON ALTONA has had some heavy defeats upon its return to the Lacrosse Victoria men’s state league and Saturday’s local derby with Footscray was no different, being pummelled 18-4 at PJ Lynch Reserve. The A’s were competitive in a 2-2 opening period but could not sustain efforts over the course of the game, out-scored 16-2 in the last three quarters. ‘‘It was always going to be a tough game for us,’’ A’s president Maurice Zicman told the Weekly. The A’s could not dampen the visitors’ attacking flair. Chris Plumb and James Lawerson were lethal for the Scray with five goals apiece. Luke Moore joined in the rout with four of his own. The A’s have found the transition to the big league a lot tougher than expected and were on the back foot from the get-go. They had initially secured three imports, but only two would be available when the season arrived, and they also lost three starters from the previous year’s squad. If there is a silver lining, they have unearthed a handful of youngsters who might not have otherwise seen time in the top team. ‘‘It’s given the guys on the fringe a chance to test themselves,’’ Zicman said. ‘‘They’ve actually stepped up.’’ Despite the 1-15 record, the A’s are determined to keep their place among the elite clubs next season. The players were under no obligation to go up this year but wanted to play in the highest league possible, even if that meant the odd thrashing. ‘‘The thing I was proud of most is the young guys in the club putting their hand up and saying, we’ll go up

Choices: Shawn Donahue assesses his options further afield for Altona. and test our mettle against the best,’’ Zicman said. ‘‘The indication I’m getting from the players is they want to stay up again. ‘‘We don’t want to be the only club in the western suburbs not to have a state league team.’’ Meanwhile, Altona will host one of Lacrosse Victoria’s finals days on September 1 at PJ Lynch Reserve. The action starts with junior finals at 9.30am, then with games all the way through the seniors in the after-

noon. Zicman wants to see as many first-time lacrosse fans at the venue as possible. ‘‘It’s a sport that people fall in love with the first time they see it,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s going to be a good showcase for the club and the sport. ‘‘We want to see as many people as possible.’’ Lacrosse Victoria Men’s state league: Camberwell 15 Williamstown 8, Altona 4 Footscray 18

Altona’s onfield class fails to bring the points ALTONA had the lion’s share of possession and more shots, but it counted for nought on the scoreboard. A clinical MCC made the most of limited chances to win 3-1 in the Hockey Victoria women’s state league 1 at the MHS-MCC Hockey Facility in South Yarra last Saturday. The A’s had the look of team eager to complete the double over MCC after a win in round seven, and they held the early momentum with ball movement that was pleasing to the eye. Their dominance was thanks largely to a master class from homegrown star

Danielle Schubach, who controlled the tempo of the game on her stick. Import Kate Gillis, a Canadian international, was just as impressive in her last game for the club. For all the A’s’ control in general play, they had little to show for it where it counted most. ‘‘We are working very hard trying to play in a certain way,’’ said A’s coach Marc Richardson. ‘‘When that doesn’t translate into a positive result it’s obviously disappointing . ‘‘We had plenty of chances to score

and will keep working on that aspect of our game.’’ The A’s did eventually find a way to goal through Tegan Purser, but the horse had already bolted. They will play their last home game of the year on Saturday against Doncaster. Footscray remains in the hunt for a finals berth after a 3-1 victory over Camberwell at McIvor Reserve. Amy Turnbull fired in a double for the Bulldogs to take her season tally to nine, with a third goal scored by Emma Robinson.

The Bulldogs will host a penultimate round blockbuster against Essendon on Saturday with fourth spot up for grabs. In men’s state league 1, Footscray was beaten mercilessly 10-1 by Camberwell, while Altona had a 1-1 draw with MCC after a Chris Coleman goal. — Lance Jenkinson

Jarry shines on Olympic stage as Opals bring back bronze ALTONA Gators-grown forward Rachel Jarry scored eight points and grabbed three rebounds in the Australian Opals’ successful bronze medal playoff against Russia at the London Games last Saturday. The Opals won 83-74 on the back of starring roles from forward Lauren Jackson (25 points) and retiring point guard Kristi Harrower (21). It was the Opals’ fifth consecutive medal at the Olympic tournament. [ 52 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Jarry, 20, averaged 4.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists over the tournament. The Bulleen Boomers star’s best game was in the semi-final loss to a powerhouse USA, which hasn’t been beaten since Barcelona in 1992. Jarry played with a real vigour to finish with five points, six rebounds and five assists. While the Opals did their utmost, they fell short to the eventual gold medal winner by 13 points.

August 15, 2012

Meanwhile, Seddon-trained wrestler Farzad Tarash had a blink-and-you-miss-it Olympics campaign. Australia’s only wrestling competitor was beaten 3-0 5-0 in just four minutes by North Korea’s Jong Myong Ri in the 60-kilogram freestyle event. Tarash told reporters after the bout that it was a ‘‘dream come true’’ to represent Australia at the Olympics and that the top-level experience would be invaluable for the rest of his career.

Geelong cyclists in fine form GEELONG Cycling Club took revenge on Footscray CC with a dominating 35-22 win in the sixth annual Challenge Cup of Cycling in Geelong on Saturday. The tally now stands at three wins apiece in the head-to-head battle in what is fast becoming one of the hotly contested races on the western suburbs cycling calendar. A chilly southerly wind and threatening rain made racing a challenge. The A grade race was dominated by Geelong club champion Tom Paton. With a killer climb and a stomach-churning descent to contend with each lap, it was not long before the peloton was broken up, with many riders heading for the showers early. In the end, it was Paton who took the long, drawn-out sprint from a gallant Chris Zucchet, with Nick Squillari coming through for third. In the B grade race, a strong bunch of 20 riders was thinned out to six by the end of the first lap. The insane pace resulted in B grade riders ranging up behind A grade for a while, with Matt Castles charging up the hills as if he was on an electric bike to take the win from the inform Chris Munro and the equally strong Mark Scouller. C grade winner Ryan Burt led home a Geelong domination of the podium, taking the sprint from fellow club members Rylan Bird and David Rhodes, while D grade gave Footscray some solace when 17-year-old Stephen Liley won from Peter Bloink and Phil Galea.

Challenge Cup A grade: Tom Paton (G), Chris Zucchet (F), Nick Squillari (G), Steven DelGallo (G), Jason Costin (F). B grade: Matt Castles (G), Chris Munro (F), Mark Scouller (F), Sam Lane (Pt F), Tony Ross (G). C grade: Ryan Burt (G), Rylan Bird (G), David Rhodes (G), Zac Dynes (G), Michael Dam (F).

Shock turns into delight

Diving effort: Williamstown youngster Jack Charleston launches in to tackle Northern Blues ball winner Brent Bransgrove.

Confident Gulls in finals action BY LANCE JENKINSON WILLIAMSTOWN sealed its berth in the finals with a determined 24-point win over Northern Blues in the Victorian Football League at a soggy Burbank Oval on Saturday. The message to the Seagulls players heading into the game was clear: win the stoppages, win the game. ‘‘The Northern Blues are the No. 1 stoppage side and that was always going to be the key,’’ Seagulls assistant coach Andrew Mirams told the Weekly. ‘‘The first quarter we came out kicking into a three to four-goal wind, but we smashed them in the stoppages and that was important.’’ It was a huge win in the context of the season for the Seagulls, as it means they can’t be dislodged from the top eight in the last two weeks. It also adds to the team’s ever-growing confidence that it can make a rare run to the flag from the bottom half of the eight. ‘‘We’re in it to win it,’’ Mirams said. ‘‘We think we’ve got a realistic chance if we keep playing the way we have been.’’ The depth of talent at the Seagulls has been crucial. They have been able to absorb the long injury list sustained by AFL affiliate Western Bulldogs because of the strength of their undefeated development squad team. ‘‘We don’t care who we have playing as long as when they pull on the jumper they play the style that we play and do the role we ask of them,’’

SCOREBOARD VFL Seniors: Williamstown 9.12 (66) d Northern Blues 6.6 (42). Williamstown — Goals: P. Veszpremi 2, L. Jones, B. Goodes, E. Carr, D. Conway, T. Hill, S. McCallum, A. Cordy. Best: A.

The Seagulls flew home in a lowscoring game with a four goals to one last quarter. The midfield group of captain Ben Jolley, Brett Goodes and Ed Carr, along with youngsters Stephen McCallum, Michael Fogarty and

Kwame McHarg, worked tirelessly to lead their side to victory. Youngster Ayce Cordy relished the freedom of playing as the Seagulls No. 1 ruckman and was named best-on-ground for his influence at the stoppages. ‘‘He was super,’’ Mirams said. Patrick Veszpremi was the only multiple goalkicker for the Seagulls with two. Easton Wood, playing in his first VFL game for the year, and James Wall, were named in the best. Youngsters Jack Charleston, Stephen Witkowski, Anton Woods and Nick Sing showed their improvement. However, Mirams said it would be unfair to single out individuals after such a good win. The Seagulls will be out to make it five straight wins when they host Sandringham Zebras in the penultimate round at Burbank Oval on Saturday.

WILLIAMSTOWN CYMS prevailed in a game of two halves over St John’s by a too-close-forcomfort 14 points in the Victorian Amateur Football Association division 1 at Fearon Reserve on Saturday. CYs had to beat the bottom-of-the-ladder Saints to keep their survival hopes alive, but the outlook was grim when they stared a 43-point deficit in the face at the end of an insipid first half. ‘‘We were in a bit of trouble at half-time,’’ CYs coach Ian Rickman said. ‘‘A few stern words were told and we came out a different side after the break.’’ CYs were desperately off-colour in the opening half. They suffered a massive letdown after a huge build-up to a game that would have major consequences if they failed to get up. Rickman was not accepting of what his side served up attitude-wise in the first half and he let them know about it. ‘‘To be six goals down in a crucial game like that was unforgivable,’’ he said. ‘‘St John’s came to play, took it right up to us and they wanted it more. A few of our boys might have thought they could just turn up and win.’’ CYs came out after the long break refocused and edged to within 18 points at the last change on the back of a four goals to two third quarter. But there was still plenty of work to be done in the last term. ‘‘It was backs to the wall stuff,’’ Rickman said. ‘‘I called on a special effort from our backline. I thought if we could keep them goalless in the last quarter we could win.’’ The CYs defence stood up big time and answered the call by restricting St John’s to a mere three points in the final 30 minutes. The whole back six was watertight, led by Shannon McAlpine, Nick Walsh and Phillip Johnson. McAlpine came to the fore when the game was on the line and must have repelled at least six attacks with his inate ability to read the play in the dying minutes. There was only one match-winner and he was nowhere near the defensive 50. Josh Vanderloo showed why he is one of the best focal points in the competition with eight goals. The mid-sized forward has the all-round package: a strong pair of hands, a precision kicking boot, speed off the mark and ability to out-smart any defender. ‘‘It was a phenomenal effort from him to kick 8.1,’’ Rickman said. CYs have one last chance to move out of the relegation zone for the first time since round nine when they host third-last Glen Eira at Fearon Reserve on Saturday. ‘‘If we can’t win this one, it’s more than likely going to end in relegation for us,’’ Rickman conceded. — Lance Jenkinson VAFA scoreboard Division 1: Williamstown CYMS 15.11 (101) d St John’s 13.9 (87)

One more chance for Roosters

Magic get back to true form BY LANCE JENKINSON

Scoreboard

ALTONA Magic comprehensively outplayed Western Suburbs for a 2-1 road win at Ralph Reserve in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 on Saturday. The Magic were stinging after the previous week’s injury-time loss to league leader Port Melbourne Sharks and were hell-bent on a focused 90-minute showing after taking their eyes off the ball the game before. Magic coach John Markovski said it was a more thorough and professional performance this time around. ‘‘I don’t think we played to our full potential the week before against Port Melbourne,’’ he said. ‘‘We were a little bit flat. This week was much better. We were the better side by far and could’ve scored more.’’ The Magic were breathing a little uneasy at half-time with scores locked at nil-all. They had done the bulk of the attacking and had nothing to show for their hard work on the

scoreboard. The second half saw more of the same, but attacking midfielder Rini Muriqi found the back of the net to give the visitors the lead, finishing off a nicely worked team goal from the back. In the space of 10 minutes, the Magic doubled their lead in a similar fashion, with striker Juso Julardzija scoring on the back of a sound team build-up. Suburbs halved the deficit from the penalty spot through Simon Kelly with 15

minutes to go, but the Magic would not be denied by a late goal. They got to celebrate a vital three points that keeps them in arm’s reach of the promotion places. ‘‘It’s always good to win and especially at their ground,’’ Markovski said. The midfield was the cornerstone of the Magic’s victory. Muriqi, Melvin Becket, Robbie Naumovski and Benjamin Vahid provided a constant flow of ball to the strikers. Such was their command, goalkeeper Stefaan Sardelic was hardly called into action apart from a penalty which squeezed under his body. The Magic have the luxury of facing winless and goal leaking bottom side Springvale White Eagles at Paisley Park Soccer Complex on Saturday, but Markovski fired a warning to his side. ‘‘Anything can happen if you take them lightly,’’ he said. ‘‘We’ve got to go out and put the effort in for 90 minutes and the rewards will come.’’

Gators take cliffhanger to set up grand final berth ALTONA Gators have advanced to the Victorian Basketball League Big V women’s youth league 2 grand final with a cliffhanger 48-47 win over Craigieburn Eagles. The decisive game two of a best-of-three semifinal series played out at the Altona Sports Centre on Saturday night. One second on the clock, one free throw to be made and ice cool co-captain Ashleigh Richardson at the line was just the tonic for the Gators to clinch a 2-0 series win. Richardson told the Weekly it was important she landed the winning basket from the free throw line to avoid overtime and a potential return to the court less than 24 hours later. ‘‘I had to make one,’’ she said. ‘‘We were all so [ 54 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

exhausted. We knew we had to win it on the night. No one wants to have to back up on Sunday again.’’ The Gators’ series win was built on a sound team effort. Richardson says it is what makes the Gators unpredictable. ‘‘It’s all 12,’’ she said. ‘‘Our whole team is talented. We work hard and we all get along. Anyone can step up.’’ It was Richardson’s turn on this night and she was happy to deliver for her team. Ashley Patterson, the other co-captain, led from the front with a team-high 11 points to go with six rebounds. Jenna Conroy was a defensive powerhouse with 10 rebounds, five steals and two blocks.

Sally Cameron was also busy with 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals. The Randy Shanklin-coached Gators will meet Hawthorn in a best-of-three grand final series.

ALTONA Roosters have one last hurdle to overcome to seal a berth in the Victorian Rugby League first grade finals. The Roosters will claim the fourth and last spot with victory over Waverley-Oakleigh Panthers on the road in Sunday’s last round. If they lose, it muddies the waters somewhat, as they will be rely on lowly Doveton Steelers to upset fifth-placed Craigieburn Phoenix to advance. Roosters player-coach Jason Warr told the Weekly his team was treating the game as cutthroat. ‘‘It’s our final,’’ he said. ‘‘For us, every game is a grand final from now on. It’s do or die all the way through.’’ The Roosters are in this predicament for two reasons. They had an incredibly tough adjustment to life with a fresh squad of players, losing their opening three games of the season. And they had a chance to lock down a

‘For us, every game is a grand final from now on. It’s do or die all the way through.’ — Jason Warr finals spot on Saturday but left the door open for the Phoenix with a 24-14 loss to that side at Hothlyn Reserve. Warr is proud of what his Roosters-intransition have managed to achieve with a new squad after the defection of seven players, including state representatives, at the end of last season. They have won seven of their past 10 matches to stay in the hunt for the finals. ‘‘It’s been a big transition year,’’ he said. ‘‘There’s been a bit of shuffling around and a lot of new guys. ‘‘The harmony is there and the boys have all put the work in. ‘‘To come back from that is testament to the boys and the culture at the club.’’ Warr and fellow co-coach Mike Hurinui have formed a strong halves combination for the Roosters. Their leadership on the park has been a guiding light for the squad’s younger members. Hurinui has set the example with his ‘‘old school’’ style of play. ‘‘He just goes hard all the time,’’ Warr said. ‘‘One of those blokes that never gives up.’’ Aiden Hema, Bradley Potae and Ben James are of a similar ilk. The hard-running back rowers will have to be at their best if the Roosters are to achieve their finals goal. — Lance Jenkinson VRL First grade: Craigieburn Phoenix 24 d Altona Roosters 14

Bulldogs’ Kaifa carves niche in new home BY LANCE JENKINSON FOOTSCRAY rising star Josh Kaifa has a whatever-it-takes mentality in his drive to become a professional rugby union player. The 20-year-old made a brave decision 18 months ago to leave his native Auckland and settle in Melbourne for better opportunities in the game. Kaifa saw a clearer path to the top than the dog-eat-dog system for youths back in New Zealand. ‘‘Back in Auckland, you’re just another rugby player,’’ he said. ‘‘Moving here, I’m getting more of

an opportunity. With the Rebels starting up, I saw it as a good opportunity to make a name for myself.’’ The talented flanker has not regretted the move for one minute. He’s turned heads from the moment he set foot on Henry Turner Reserve. Kaifa is a permanent fixture in the Footscray first team in the Premier 1 Dewar Shield, which is on the verge of playing in the finals. And he recently captained Victoria to an unexpected title at the under-20 interstate carnival. Kaifa’s team blew away its muchfancied rivals in all three matches,

including a 42-5 drubbing of Queensland Country in the final. ‘‘They [Victoria] usually don’t do well in this competition,’’ Kaifa said. ‘‘The scores we won by were quite overwhelming.’’ Kaifa said Victoria was given little respect before it arrived on the Gold Coast for the tournament. But it certainly departed with a burgeoning reputation as a state to watch. ‘‘They saw that we had come from down south and thought we couldn’t play the game. They looked down on us. It just shows what we can do.’’ Kaifa has rugby in the bloodline. He

is a cousin of Wallabies international Tatafu Polota-Nau. ‘‘It just clicked for me that I wanted to be a professional rugby player when I met him,’’ Kaifa said. Meanwhile, Footscray’s hopes of a double chance in the top-tier Dewar Shield took a blow with a 14-11 loss to Harlequins on Saturday.

Woodsmen onballers cut down Warriors BY LANCE JENKINSON

SCOREBOARD

SPOTSWOOD has earned a reputation as one of the premier contested ball sides in the Western Region Football League division 1. When the Woodsmen arrived to wet and muddy conditions for their penultimate round clash with Hoppers Crossing at Hogans Road Oval on Saturday, they were licking their lips with anticipation of a good-old-fashioned slog. Woodsmen player-coach Chris O’Keefe told the Weekly that his onball brigade, led by captain Tom Langlands, Dylan Ayton and mobile ruckman Ben Perry, thrived at the stoppages to orchestrate a workman-like 48-point win. ‘‘It was pretty tough out there,’’ O’Keefe, another onballer, said. ‘‘It was wet and slippery, and as you would expect from a game against Hoppers Crossing, it was a hot ball and a fierce contest. ‘‘We made winning the contested ball first and foremost in our minds and we did that.’’ The Woodsmen burst out of the blocks like a certain Jamaican in a 100-metre dash. They opened up a 27-point quarter-time lead and it would prove unassailable in the conditions. The green and golds were outstanding at applying forward pressure. Christian Elliott, Will Langlands, Ben Pope, Torin Baker and Chase Morgan were constantly chasing and harassing the Warriors defence into

The only blot on the Woodsmen copybook was their errant kicking for goal. Eleven goals was all they had to show from 26 scoring shots.

Perry, who bucked the trend with a team-best three goals, was a standout for the Woodsmen in all departments. The former basketballer has come on in leaps and bounds since his arrival from Ainslie in the AFL Canberra competition and he showed against a finals opposition that he could be an

The Eagles swooped on the minor premiership with their unbeaten record still in tact. They won their 16th straight game in a 170-point annihilation of local

rivals West Footscray at Yarraville Oval on Saturday. For their scintillating season, the Eagles get the benefit of a rest in week one of the finals this weekend, and have a double chance up their sleeve.

X-factor for the Woodsmen in September. Not only did Perry win his fair share of hit outs to advantage, his tireless coverage of the ground set the tone for his teammates. The Woodsmen are still a slim chance of snatching the minor premiership from under the noses of ladder-leader Altona Vikings. The Vikings lost for just the second time when they travelled to Deer Park on Saturday, leaving both sides on equal points heading into the final round. The Woodsmen will be heavily favoured to beat North Footscray at McLean Reserve this Saturday, putting a bit of pressure on the Vikings.
