Get it right on bin night

Hobsons Bay residents are being urged to ‘Get it right on bin night’ during September to improve household recycling. The annual campaign will run until 22nd September and raises awareness of correct household recycling. Each year Melbourne households throw out 30,000 wheelie bins full of items in their garbage collection that could have been recycled. There are some great tips available online to help make recycling easier. In Hobsons Bay items suitable for recycling include glass jars and bottles, plastic bottles and containers, aluminium and steel cans, aerosols, foil, milk and juice cartons, newspapers, magazines and cardboard boxes, pots and pans and small plastic toys. The following items should not be placed in the recycling bin: plastic bags, crockery, Pyrex or broken glass, motor oil containers, hazardous or chemical waste, polystyrene, waxed cardboard, paper with food remains, nappies, household rubbish, or syringes. For tips on recycling, visit www.getitrightonbinnight.vic.gov.au

Parks, coastal reserves, waterways, plazas, botanic gardens and sporting reserves - it’s all open space! Hobsons Bay has a diverse open space network that is highly valued by the community. The Council is now developing an Open Space Strategy 2013-2026 that will help ensure: open space is designed and managed to better meet the needs of our diverse and growing community; we have enough open space in the right places; the network can meet the challenges and impacts of climate change; and significant conservation areas and biodiversity values are strengthened and protected.

Public Toilet Strategy

The Council has adopted the Public Toilet Strategy following public consultation. Three submissions were received concerning accessibility issues for people with intellectual disabilities, a public toilet at McCormack Park and the relocation of the proposed public toilets at Altona Sport Centre to be moved closer to the 100 Steps of Federation. The Council will also investigate the provision of a public toilet at The Circle, Altona North. The strategy sets out the priority works list for public toilets across Hobsons Bay. The Council has allocated $640,000 in the 2013-14 Budget to implement several toilet projects.

Cyril Curtain Wetlands

The construction of the Cyril Curtain Wetlands has been affected by the heavy and consistent rain in recent months. It has been too wet for machinery to access the site, however there is minimal construction left to complete the project. The application of the clay liner has commenced and once the site dries this can be completed then the landscaping can be undertaken. The mechanical pumps are installed and ready for operation. Every effort is being made to have Cyril Curtain Reserve open before Christmas.

counting new and continuing senators, the Greens have 10 seats, Labor 25 and the Coalition 33. Eight seats are tipped to go to diverse candidates. “On the current counting, there are independent senators from a whole range of parties, most of whom are fairly conservative parties, so the Liberals may have more opportunity to get various bits of legislation through, through negotiations with them,” Ms Rice said. She said she hoped the current Labor senators would stand firm in the face of prime minister-elect Tony Abbott’s move to repeal the carbon tax before July 1. “At the moment they’ve got 33 senators in the new senate and so they’ll need to get the support of six other senators to get legislation through. They’re going to negotiate presumably with these eight conservatives and independents, all of whom are going to have their own little things that they support. It’s going to be very interesting.” \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

seat of gellibrand

A swing of close to 10 per cent towards the Liberal party has not stopped Joanne Ryan from retaining the seat of Lalor for the Australian Labor Party. Ms Ryan, who became Labor’s candidate for the safe seat after former prime minister Julia Gillard announced her retirement from politics, secured 45.84 per cent of the primary vote. The result was an 18 per cent drop in primary votes for Labor from the last election. Ms Ryan attributed the decrease to Ms Gillard’s departure and the rise of minor parties. Labor was on the wrong side of a two-party preferred swing of 10.06 per cent, one of the largest shifts towards the Liberal party in the state. Ms Ryan said she was “humbled” to be representing a community she loved. “It is an enormous privilege,’’ she said. ‘‘I will continue Labor’s tradition of fighting for the people in Lalor. I come from an activist background, so that is how I will approach the work.” Ms Gillard was one of the first people to congratulate Ms Ryan on her win. Liberal candidate Nihal Samara secured 29 per cent of the primary vote and 37 per cent of two-party preferred votes. The Greens’ Beck Sheffield-Brotherton was next with 5.84 per cent primary, followed by Palmer United Party’s Joe Zappia (5.78 per cent). Stable Population Party’s Jonathan Page polled the lowest, securing 0.37 per cent (303 votes). \ LAURA LITTLE

planned disability rent hike scrapped DISABILITY

A South Kingsville family has welcomed the Napthine government’s backdown on plans for a 50 per cent rent rise for people with a disability in supported accommodation. Peter Mountford and his wife Georgina said their son, Julian, would have been $5000 short if forced to spend 75 per cent of his disability pension on rent. Representing more than 2000 residents with disabilities at an initial hearing last week, Villamanta Disability Rights Legal Service was given the green light to begin legal action against the government. Proceedings were set to start at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal on September 13, but the government on Thursday scrapped the planned fee hike. The legal action was calling for a reversal of the controversial plan to increase board and lodging fees as of December 1. Mr Mountford said it was “a terrific victory” in what was probably “round one” of the fight. “At the moment, we’re just over the moon because it’s been a battle and involved us in a lot of angst. We’re just delighted, from our point of view, from Julian’s point of view and for all people with a disability who are in shared supported accommodation, that the government’s been rolled on this.”

Terrific: Peter Mountford, at home with wife Georgina and son Julian, says the family is ‘over the moon’ with the government decision. (MICHAEL COPP)

Stephen Lennon said his son Declan would have been almost $6000 in the red after one year, factoring in costs such as taxi fares from his Altona Meadows home to his education program. “This [the backdown] is going to mean that when my wife and I aren’t there for him he is still going to be able to have a reasonable life and be able to enjoy things everyone else in the country can enjoy.” Petitions that attracted more than 6500 signatures were to be presented to parliament

later this month. A spokesman for Disability Services Minister Mary Wooldridge said the Department of Human Services had withdrawn the notice of a fee increase. “VCAT has indicated that it will expect each resident to present their circumstances to the tribunal and the Victorian government is not prepared to put people with disability and their families through such a litigious process,” he said. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK with The Age

Mr Merritt said the authority had not yet considered a health study, but the Department of Health had been provided with the report. Maribyrnong Truck Action Group president Samantha McArthur said a health study was the logical next step given Maribyrnong’s high rates of hospitalisation due to respiratory problems. Ms McArthur also criticised the averaging of results over 24 hours, arguing it failed to show the impact on residents. “In 2001 the noise levels were well beyond where they should be, and in 2013 we are seeing exactly the same thing.

More than 300 trains skipped the Altona loop last financial year despite being scheduled to stop at the three stations on the Werribee line. Public Transport Victoria’s Track Record report showed that trains bypassed the Altona loop 98 times from April to June – 36 more times than for the June quarter last year. Trains that are meant to stop at Westona, Altona and Seaholme stations can run directly between Laverton and Newport to make up time. Operator Metro received a $2.4-million state government performance bonus for meeting targets. Members of the Altona Loop Group last year coined the term “kidnap express” to describe trains that changed direction mid-journey to save time. Altona Loop Group member Jennifer Williams said the group believed there should be no bypasses as the service level was already poor. “At more than one per day, it is hardly a rare occurrence and has serious impacts on passengers,” she said. “On August 22, I was on a train at night that left Newport and bypassed the loop. “All of the passengers had to change platforms at Laverton and wait 14 minutes for a train to the loop stations. It took over an hour to get home from the city, which shows just how unreliable the service is.” The Altona loop section of the track is in zone 1 and within 15 kilometres of Melbourne. Altona resident Shelley Kerr said every Friday about 7.30pm it took more than an hour to get home. A PTV spokesman said there had been a dramatic reduction in bypasses, which were down from more than 1000 in 2010. “After the completion of Regional Rail Link [expected in 2016], Altona loop trains will be able to run through to Flinders Street so that passengers will no longer need to change trains at Newport,” he said. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

kids book in for cook-off

tunnel on agenda east-west link

Food, glorious food, was the theme of National Literacy and Numeracy Week, and pupils from Altona Green Primary School whisked up a storm. Grade 5/6 students paired up for a MasterChef-style cook-off, making omelette with eggs from the school’s chickens and ingredients from the Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden. The winner, Kaitlyn, helped in the kitchen by Cassie, used spinach, mushrooms, and fresh and semi-dried tomatoes to create a dish infused with subtle sophistication. The school is among 363 nationwide that are involved in the Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden program, where children grow and harvest fruit and vegetables. Kitchen specialist Julie Cassie said the Altona Meadows school was one of the first 15 in Australia to join up six years ago. “Everything they cook, every lesson is from produce from the garden, so they harvest it and cook five dishes and have lunch together. “We actually had a child last year who refused to eat anything and then by the end of the year he wrote a notebook called The Diary of a Wimpy Eater, and he now eats broad beans and beetroot and everything.” Cassie

A road tunnel running beneath Footscray from the port to the west appears back on the table following the election of the federal Coalition. The second stage of the east-west link, running from the Tullamarine Freeway to Brooklyn and ultimately to the ring road, has been raised by Victorian Premier Denis Napthine as an inevitable next step following the completion of the $6-$8 billion 5.2-kilometre first stage connecting the Eastern Freeway to the Tullamarine Freeway. The proposal for the second river crossing has the support of western suburbs lobby group LeadWest but is opposed by the Maribyrnong Truck Action Group and the Greens, which favour a cheaper proposal for ramps to take 10,000 trucks off residential roads and onto the West Gate Freeway. Roads Minister Terry Mulder said there had been some very vocal supporters of the east-west link among business and freight organisations, but now “the silent majority” were supporting the project. \ BM

A brush with the law has brought new life to the Horn of Africa community centre in Footscray courtesy of a fresh coat of paint. Maribyrnong police officers rolled up their sleeves alongside members of the African-Australian community to give the centre a makeover inside and out. Among them were Deng Malith, from the community centre, and Senior Constable Ash Dixit (both pictured). The aim of the project was to strengthen relationships between police and new and emerging communities. Dulux supplied the paint and equipment. \

school adventure

A group of Footscray Primary School pupils has touched down in Vietnam for a two-week study tour. Principal Philip Fox is leading the 19 year 5 and 6 students, six staff and two parents in an adventure that will take in the cities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Hoi An as well as a three-day visit to “sister school” Phuoc Tien Primary School in beachside Nha Trang. Supporting the Footscray school’s bilingual program, the pupils will have the chance to

try out their Vietnamese language skills in classrooms, markets and cities. Mr Fox said the whole school community could follow and share the journey though Skype, email and a blog. “The study tour is certainly exciting, innovative and challenging,” he said. “We find the students enjoy the responsibility, and the experience really enriches their learning.” Pupils will also visit rice paddies and museums, cruise to Bird’s Nest Island off Nha Trang, explore the Mekong Delta and whip up local specialties in a cooking class. \ BM

Where there’s a Will

There’s a way for anyone with a fund-raising dream to help Cancer Council Victoria’s unique program, I Will for Cancer, writes Robert Fedele

O

n Saturday mornings, Peter Saunders heads to Port Melbourne and puts on a wetsuit before inching warily into the bay. The 52-year-old Essendon resident is training for next February’s Ironman Melbourne, held in Frankston. He swims methodically from pier to pier, back and forth over and over again. His efforts grow in stature when he reveals a susceptibility to hypothermia and, more startlingly, a fear of the ocean since childhood. ‘‘From when I saw Jaws in 1972,’’ Saunders says, without any hint of jest. ‘‘I kid you not, ever since then I’ve had a fear of being in the water.’’ It begs the immediate question of why the father of two would subject himself to such self-torture. ‘‘Because my fear of not finishing the event is greater than my fear of swimming in the ocean,’’ he declares. The event, however, is just one component of Saunders’ motivation. Another reason he is taking the plunge is a unique program run by the Cancer Council, I Will for Cancer, where everyday people can dream up a fund-raising idea to support the cause. Last year, Melburnians Karan Singh and Ashleigh Leech raised $2000 after organising a half-day marathon session of illustrations they called Half of Us. Castlemaine youngsters Marli Ollerton and Tegan Benham-Bannon made 1000 origami cranes and raised more than $3000. They were inspired by Sadako Sasaki of Japan, who was diagnosed with leukemia but refused to give up hope and pledged to make 1000 origami cranes because there is a belief in Japan that if you make 1000 cranes you will be granted a wish by the gods. Sadly she died aged 12 in 1955 after making 644 cranes. Quirkier fund-raising ideas have included a pair who dressed up as a tortoise and a hare and cycled from Sydney to Melbourne. Saunders, a grade 5 teacher at Overnewton Anglican Community College, has competed in several triathlons and had always wanted to tackle an Ironman, which involves a 3.8-kilometre swim, 180-kilometre bike ride and 42-kilometre run. Saunders says depression is another reason behind his fund-raiser. In January this year, on a trip to his parents’

homeland of Romania, he slipped on ice and broke four someone in the long run.’’ Furnari’s dad’s fully restored ribs.

A Catholic brother accused of sexually abusing an Altona Meadows woman when she was a child has been charged with 14 counts of indecent assault. Brother Bernard Hartman, 73, was arrested at Melbourne Airport after arriving from the US last week. Taskforce Sano detectives allege the offences happened at schools in the western suburbs of Melbourne during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Mairead Ashcroft, 48, went to the Catholic church nearly 15 years ago alleging Hartman had abused her from the ages of eight to 11. The Marianist Brother was the Ashcroft family’s babysitter and also saw Ms Ashcroft during Saturday classes at St Paul’s College in Altona North. The charges relate to Ms Ashcroft, another woman and two men aged between eight and 16 at the time of the alleged abuse. Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Dwyer, of Taskforce Sano, said the Melbourne Catholic Archdiocese had been instrumental in helping Victoria Police in the matter. Hartman was bailed after arrangements were made for his criminal justice visa. He is scheduled to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on November 28. \ GD » Full story: www.maribyrnongweekly.com.au

engineered to extremes The ability to make the simplest task as complicated as possible has earned a group of Footscray City College students a prestigious prize. The year-10 students defeated teams from 14 other schools to take the title of the “2013 Amazing Spaghetti Machine Competition Champions” with their Rube Goldberg machine, a series of over-engineered chain reactions to carry out a simple goal. Jake Lees, Vincent Victory, Alex Olsen and Rory Young (pictured with their creation) have spent the past four months working

on a device that could spray paint the word “Engineer”. The young experimenters combined falling weights, rising water, marbles, pulleys, spray bottles, sodium carbonate and even litmus paper in their machine. They said it was a real “buzz” to be named competition champions. Organised by the Melbourne School of Engineering, The Amazing Spaghetti Machine contest puts into practice skills in maths, science, engineering and project management. \ BM

The sound of hooves thundering down the straights at Moonee Valley and Flemington racecourses seems to echo the very heartbeat of Melbourne and its celebration of the Spring Racing Carnival.

Racing into carnival action T

he starting gates have whipped open for this year’s Spring Racing Carnival, with loads of spectacular horse racing action ahead. It’s a chance to see the best thoroughbred horseflesh in the game.

Melburnians love their gee-gees and, at this time of year, the whiff of horse leathers is the fragrance de jour. And there’s nothing like a day out at the races to lift the spirits by being part of the buzz unique to Melbourne’s west side. Of course, this wonderful carnival is not just about the horses. It’s just as much about the f-words: fashion, food and fun time with friends.

It has one spacious bedroom with built-in wardrobe and extra storage above it; a bathroom with shower-over-bath; carpeted open-plan living-dining room; kitchen with ample storage space and a balcony shaded by a beautiful palm tree. There is parquetry flooring in the kitchen and venetian blinds on the windows.

Motoring \ Rod Easdown discovers the right and ‘rude’ of drivers

A

s a pedestrian you may have developed a view about BMW drivers. As an experienced road user, this view may well have been reinforced. Well here’s the latest news from the Institute of Personality and Social Research at the University of California; you’re entirely correct. The folk there have been studying manners “Fancy and wealth, and part of their research cars were involved pitting pedestrians against traffic. less likely At a busy pedestrian crossing they waited to stop” for cars to approach, and as the pedestrian guinea pig walked towards the crossing researchers noted which cars stopped and which continued on their way, intimidating the mere human into stopping short. They also monitored an intersection that had a stop sign at every entrance. These are common in the US and force every driver to stop, look around and wait their turn to proceed. The researchers noted which cars jumped their turn. They also recorded the sex and approximate age of each driver and the type of car involved. Was it an old banger or the latest model with an expensive badge? The cars were rated from one to five, with a one being a bit of a wreck and a five being a Mercedes, a BMW or something similar. Researcher Paul K. Piff published the results in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences last year. It’s a publication taken seriously indeed in (SUPPLIED)

scientific circles. It indicated that 80 per cent of drivers did the right thing. The interesting bit was totting up the scores in that rogue 20 per cent. Piff noted a “huge boost” in a driver’s likelihood to do the rude thing when he was behind the wheel of an expensive car. And he used the word “he” advisedly because male drivers were less likely to stop for pedestrians than females. Interestingly male and female drivers were more likely to stop for a female pedestrian than a male. “In our crosswalk study, none of the cars in the beaten-up category drove through the crosswalk; they always stopped for pedestrians,” Piff said. “But one of the most significant trends was that fancy cars were less likely to stop. BMW drivers were the worst.” They weren’t the only ones, of course. The other car singled out by the researchers as having drivers on the rude side was Toyota’s Prius. In the San Francisco Bay Area, where the research was carried out, the hybrid Prius is regarded as a status symbol driven by the environmentally conscious. “Prius drivers had a higher tendency to commit infractions than most,” Piff said. Still, they weren’t as bad as the BMWs, leading the hardy souls involved in the study to come up with their own little joke; despite having good brakes, a BMW usually stops with a jerk. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

Tech Talk

Y

ou’re probably wondering what exactly it is in the picture. Scary as it might be, it’s possibly the future of watches. And it’s very, very expensive. So expensive that the 234-megabyte media kit describing it doesn’t mention the price ($300,000), but says that just 50 are being made. It’s made by Swiss watchmaker Hublot and it is called the MP-05 LaFerrari. My experience of Ferrari tech is that the only people who understand it are the types who go all hot when evening conversation turns to prime numbers. And so it is with this watch. Nevertheless, there were parts of the media kit I understood. The numbers at the top right show the time; the top number is the hour and the bottom, the minute. The seconds are displayed on the dial at the bottom centre immediately under the brand name. Hublot claims to have set a record with this watch by achieving a 50-day power reserve. That is, after you have wound it, it will keep going for 50 days before you have to wind it again. Those numbers on the left indicate how many days you have left before you take the special tools out of the Schedoni leather and carbon-fibre

presentation case, expose the winding crown (it’s under the hinged titanium and carbon-fibre triangle at the top of the watch) and wind. The watch also has a tourbillon. Which is something about countering the effects of gravity on the most delicate components of a hand-wound watch, and there are 637 in this one. My view: There are easier ways to tell the time. \ Rod easdown reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.hublot.com/en_US

seagulls soar past port vfl

Williamstown thundered into the Victorian Football League preliminary finals at North Port Oval on Saturday, belting old foe Port Melbourne 27.14 (176) to 14.5 (89). The Seagulls will meet raging flag favourite Geelong this Saturday for a spot in the grand final. Though Williamstown was the higher-ranked of the two teams heading into the semi-final, plenty of punters gave Port Melbourne a chance. The Borough beat Williamstown comfortably on two occasions this year, and held the Seagulls to two goals at the same venue in round 14. But Williamstown controlled the contest from the outset, booting the first five goals of the game before Port got its first. By half-time the Seagulls led by an astonishing 50 points, and killed off the contest in the third quarter by kicking 12 goals to four. The Borough had slightly the better of the final term with eight goals to six, preventing a triple-figure loss, but there was no stopping the complete and utter dominance of the yellow and blue. There were 14 individual goalkickers for Williamstown, led by Jason Tutt’s five and Patrick Veszpremi’s four. Jack Johnstone was best-on-ground for the Seagulls, restricting the dangerous Chris Cain

tigers too hot for altona Rugby League

Altona Roosters’ back-to-back dream was scuppered by the talent-laden Sunbury United Tigers in the Victorian Rugby League first-grade grand final at Langama Park on Saturday. Trailing 16-4 at half-time, as they did on the same stage last year, the Roosters were hoping for another miracle comeback. But there was to be no such outcome this year as the Tigers charged to a convincing 36-16 win. Roosters captain Ben James “it’s been conceded that the better side won. a tough “We got them last year, they were year off the too strong this year,” James said. “They’re a quality outfit and field” deserved their win, so we’ll cop it on the chin. “There is a fair bit of respect between our two teams based on the success of both of our clubs. “We’re hoping that our young kids learn from the experience they got this year and will go one better next year.” Sunbury is the VRL feeder club to the Melbourne Storm. The Tigers are full of young players with their sights set on representing the Storm at under-age level. The professionalism of these rising stars is unmatched and the Roosters were given the runaround after half-time. “Too fast, too strong and too skilful, based on all the training they do,” James said of the Tigers. “They’re a good bunch of young, talented Storm kids.” Shut down: Keni Blair and the Altona Roosters had their quest for back-to-back titles ended by The Roosters went on the attack for the the Tigers.

cyms title and promotion dreams smashed vafa division 1

Williamstown CYMS has fallen one stop short of its desired destination in Victorian Amateur Football Association division 1. The CYs had their sights set on a grand final at a minimum after qualifying for the finals in second place. But Mathew Montebello’s team bowed out in straight sets after a shattering 11-point preliminary final loss to Ormond at Trevor

Barker Oval in Sandringham on Saturday. CYs missed out on their chance for automatic promotion to the VAFA’s premier tier and will not get an opportunity to avenge their qualifying final loss at the hands of Hampton Rovers. The CYs were always a long way back on the scoreboard against Ormond but matched them in general play if volume of scoring is any indication. But the CYs kicked themselves out of

the contest, converting just six times from 24 scoring shots. Steven Barlow was their lone multiple goalkicker with two. Ormond’s Matthew Robbins, who played 146 AFL games with Geelong and the Western Bulldogs, proved the difference in the match with five goals. Ruckman Steven Puhar and tough-as-nails onballer Jason Bencich were the best for the CYs. \ LJ

western jets exit as cannons fire in semi-final TAC CUP

An eventful TAC Cup season has ended for the Western Jets. The fifth-ranked Jets came up short in a 35-point semi-final loss to local rivals Calder Cannons at Visy Park on Sunday. The Jets struggled from the game’s outset, trailing by four goals to one at quarter time and fighting to bridge the gap. Dillon Viojo-Rainbow’s goal early in the third term cut the Calder lead to 12, but that is as close as the Jets would get. The runaway Cannons booted eight of the final 12 goals to move through to the preliminary final, while the Jets were eliminated. The stand-out performers for the Jets were Jayden Laverde, Lachlan Hickey and Brett Bewley. James Sicily was the lone multiple goalkicker for the Jets with three. Later that night, Sicily was rewarded for a superb season with TAC Cup team-of-the-year honours. The Vic Metro representative was named on the extended interchange bench, and was the only Jets player to figure in the squad of 24. Onballers David Iaccarino and Jake Greiser were considered unlucky to miss out after top-notch seasons. Iaccarino was the leading Jets vote-winner at the Morrish Medal count with 12. Four medals were awarded after an incredible tie between Jacob Chisari (Bendigo Pioneers), Ben Cavarra (Eastern Ranges), George Cameron (Geelong Falcons) and Josh Scott (Gippsland Power). The final vote tallies for the Jets were: Iaccarino 12; Sicily 8; Bewley 6; Harrison King, Jake McKenzie, Mark Orr 5; Greiser 4; Jason Robinson 3; Daniel Burton 2; Omar Abou-Zeid, Viojo-Rainbow, Liam Duggun and Corey Ellis 1. The Jets will hold their presentation night on September 24. Meanwhile, there will be no rest for the players, most of whom will begin preparing for combines in the lead-up to the AFL national draft. That translates to big training loads without the gratification of game-day performances. Most players will also be studying for school exams. It all means it will be a hectic time in the lives of the west’s best young footballers. \ LJ

lions break 18-year drought WRFL DIVISION 1

Deer Park’s excruciating 18-year wait for a Western Region Football League division 1 grand final appearance is over. The Lions won their way to their first season decider since 1995 with a 90-point slaughter of Sunshine Kangaroos in the preliminary final at Chirnside Park on Saturday. The minor premier set up a showdown with Spotswood at Watton Street on Saturday – and it will not be the first time these two sides have been combatants in the big one. They met in grand finals in back-to-back seasons in the mid-1990s, with the Lions ruling in 1994 but the Woodsmen gaining revenge in 1995. But the Woodsmen hold a 3-1 all-time advantage, having beaten the Lions in 1990 and 1938, when Deer Park operated as ICI. This is the match-up that best represents the 2013 season – the top-ranked Lions against the in-form Spotswood. Lions player-coach Marc Bullen said there could be no tougher challenge for his side in the quest for a first top-tier flag in 19 years. “Spotswood is a fantastic side and a fantastic club,” he said. “To make seven grand finals in a row is probably unheard of in metropolitan football.” Deer Park is riding high on confidence after culling the Kangaroos. The Lions came out firing after being jolted by Spotswood in the semi-final. Their running game clicked from the outset and pressure around the contest had the Roos flinching on occasions. “We have a key emphasis on what we call our three P’s – pressure, pressure and pressure,” Bullen said. “I thought our pressure around the footy was first-class.” Lions small forward Josh Jones served up a taste of things to come with the opening two goals of the match inside seven minutes before Chris Stewart and Luke Guerra made it four unanswered for the red-hot Lions. Mitch Hahn scrambled a late goal for the Roos in time-on but the Lions went into the break with a 21-point lead. It was much the same at the start of the second term, with Deer Park enjoying the bulk of possession. When Rhett King goaled at the 15-minute mark, the Lions lead was out to 34. But the Roos showed a rare bit of fight in the 10-minute period before half-time, dominating the clearances and pegging goals back from Kieran Murphy and Chris Tripodi. The Roos trailled by 21 points and were still in with a sniff, although that changed in a heartbeat in the third term. The Lions ran riot to slam on four goals in six minutes, thanks largely to purple patches from Kwame McHarg, whose foot speed out of the congestion was breathtaking, and Heath Ayres and his craftiness inside 50. The one-way traffic continued for the rest of the game, the Lions adding 12 unanswered goals before Patrick Wiggins got a consolation after the final siren. All 22 Lions played their part.

Onballer Shannon Broadbent was best on ground with his unrelenting attack for four quarters and his physicality early in the third. “He leads by example with his actions, getting in, tackling, chasing, diving on footys,” Bullen said. “He’ll do whatever he can to get our team to succeed.” Stewart underlined his status as the premier big man in the competition, a commanding presence in the ruck and a dependable target with three goals. The Lions’ victory was built on defence, and no two players were better in that respect than Jackson Barling and Sam Hunt. The Lions will have a few headaches at Thursday-night selection with Bullen and the supremely talented Kevin Klix likely to return for the grand final. The first bounce at Chirnside Park is at 2.15pm. The curtain-raisers will be Altona and Sunshine in the reserves grand final, from 11.50am, while the under-18s decider will be between Hoppers Crossing and St Albans from 9.30pm. \ LANCE JENKINSON SEPTEMBER 11, 2013 \ MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY WEEKLY 53

Diker rejoices in ‘best feeling ever’ WRFL division 2 grand final \ The coach

It was a case of weighing up risks versus rewards for Glenorden coach Nick Diker. He could take the safe option and slowly build for the future or make bold off-season moves that would mean a flag or bust. Diker decided to roll the dice and do it his own way – and now he is a premiership coach after leading the Hawks to a 43-point win over Parkside in the Western Region Football League division 2 grand final on Sunday. “When I got here two years ago, the club was on a downward spiral,” Diker said. “I thought there’s two ways you could go – recruit a couple of young guys and maybe get us mid-table for a few years and see how

we go, or turn the club right around … that’s experience’ … there’s the result. Super-fit guy, what I like to think we did. really good guy to have at the club – he lives in “We didn’t spend huge money … people Templestowe but never misses training, never will say that we did, but we didn’t.

The captain

Glenorden captain Chris Scudamore had no shortage of motivation entering Saturday’s Western Region Football League division 2 grand final. He is a man who takes pride in his own performance, letting his actions speak through his willingness to sacrifice his body in the quest to get his hands on a premiership medallion. A solidly built onballer adept at ground level and surprisingly strong overhead, he is a vital cog in a quality Hawks’ midfield due to his natural ball-winning ability and head-over-the-ball approach. Captaincy is an honour that he talks about with pride. If Scudamore felt compelled to pay back Hawks coach Nick Diker for receiving the captaincy, what better way to show his appreciation than to do so with the ultimate reward hanging from his neck. “I’ve never felt like this before,” Scudamore said after the grand-final win over Parkside. “I’ve never been a premiership captain and I was never captain at my old club. It means a lot to me.” Scudamore had a fire in the belly entering the grand final of a kind that had not been evident at any other point in his career. Memories of a “rough two years” spurred him on. Missing out on the Hawks’ return to the finals last year through suspension hurt. And he was a bit miffed by the assessment of radio commentators that his 17-1 side could be mentioned as underdogs in the season decider. In fact, Scudamore says the blemish of losing against Parkside in their last regular season meeting was a reminder the Hawks players needed to “know that we’re beatable” after taking almost all before them over the course of 19 games leading into the big one. “I was like, ‘This is a bit shocking,” he said of his reaction to his side being labelled underdogs despite winning the minor premiership and taking the direct route to the

time to celebrate grand final. “We were underdogs today, so that made it even sweeter. We were that more geed up after that.” Scudamore, talking amid the frenzy of post-match celebrations, could not wipe the smile off his face. He admitted that the feeling of being a premiership winner “hadn’t sunk in yet”. Scudamore was just relieved to come out on the winning side of the ledger after never-say-die Parkside kept coming at the Hawks in the middle period of the match. If he was to nitpick a flaw in this

a horrible experience and they will want to avoid a repeat at all costs. On the flipside, the club is more stable, has new facilities is more attractive to recruits because of its win-now attitude. Perhaps it will want to strike while the iron is hot. Diker says that is a “50-50” call as it stands. “We’ve got to weigh everything up,” he said. “I’m not going to be one of these guys who says, ‘We’re going up and that’s it’. “We’ll have a big meeting when we need to let the league know, and I want to get everyone’s opinion on it. “I don’t want to be a division-2 coach – I want to go up, onwards and upwards, and I think I’m capable.” \ LANCE JENKINSON

near-perfect side, it was that it often had a quarter fade out. So he looks back on the Hawks’ undisciplined second term as a black spot in the game, but one that did not ruin their day. “Our second quarter was our quarter off and it scared us a bit going into half-time,” Scudamore said. “It’s probably our biggest weakness – only playing three quarters of footy.” All’s well that ends well – and the all-conquering Hawks are division-2 premiers for the second time in eight years. \ LJ

The lopsided scoreline of 15.12 (102) to 8.11 (59) at Chirnside Park on Sunday might suggest it was a cruisey day at the office for Glenorden’s defence in the Western Region Football League division 2 grand final. But the numbers – including the Hawks having eight more scoring shots in a 43-point win – are deceiving. There were lengthy periods during the second and third quarters when Parkside asked serious questions of the Hawks’ defence, but the boys in the brown and gold built a near-impenetrable wall at the back to deny the opposition time and again. Rhys Bucktin was one of the bricks in that wall. He’s a young defender unlucky not to finish with the Rex Swann Medal for best on ground, which was awarded to midfielder Dash Barolli. Bucktin said the unheralded Hawks’ back six was like a team within a team. While the classy midfield and star-studded forward line received most of the plaudits this season, on this perfect September day it would be the defence that shone the brightest. “We just kept fighting hard, doing the 1 per centers and just sticking tight – it’s all you can do in the backline to win games like this,” Bucktin said. For Bucktin, it was his first senior premiership and one that was well deserved. The last time he tasted premiership glory was six years ago in the juniors. “It’s a good feeling … I’m pumped,” he said. “It’s going to be a very big week.” Log on to our website for a photo gallery from the WRFL division 2 grand final. \ LJ

WRFL division 2 grand final

How could you possibly contain the depth of talent that Glenorden rolled out in Sunday’s Western Region Football League division 2 grand final? Parkside was desperate to avoid the bridesmaid’s tag for a fourth time in five years, but even after giving it their all for 120 minutes and leaving nothing in reserve, it was still not enough. Glenorden would go laughing all the way home to Kookaburra Avenue with the 2013 premiership cup in tow. The Hawks are a team with a lot of parts welded together by coach Nick Diker and his team of assistants. The big names are complemented by dependable team-oriented players, the inexperienced youngsters are shown the way by the veterans and the veterans get their energy off the fresh-faced players in the group. They are like a bag of liquorice allsorts, and when it all comes together, the flavour hit is spectacular. While the Hawks knew a long way out from the final siren that they would salute on the premiership podium, they were made to work hard for their rewards by a brave Parkside, who were down a rotation early after a career-threatening Achilles injury to player-coach Nathan Juegan. The Magpies controlled the early part of the opening term as the result of some fine work at the centre clearances from ruckman Alex Lochart. He linked well with Juegan and Nick Grant but they couldn’t make their dominance tell on the scoreboard. Nick Bone booted the opening goal of the match for the Magpies, but his side would butcher many other attempts, with three out-on-the-fulls for the quarter. The nervous Hawks took 10 minutes to settle, but when they clicked it would have a devastating effect on the Magpies’ day. Five unanswered goals saw the Hawks lead by 24 points at quarter time. Parkside dominated the clearances after the break but a combination of sloppy entries from point-blank range. Emotions threatened inside 50 and a sturdy Hawks defence, led to spill over at the end of the second term, by the impenetrable Rhys Bucktin, saw them with the two huddles convening on centre fail to make any significant erosion of the wing for a push and shove before they broke Hawks lead. up for half-time.

The Hawks’ celebrations went long into the night at their Heathdale Oval home and included a rendition of the club song We’re a Happy Team at Orden in the pitch black in the middle of the ground. \ LANCE JENKINSON
