Sheriff hits Chaddy shoppers

COVER: Sookiara, 4, (left) a patient at Monash Children’s was joined by his sister Monkia, 3, to decorate one of the hospital’s Christmas trees. See page 8.

BY DANIEL TRAN A TRIP to Chadstone proved considerably more expensive than shoppers intended when 63 of them were identified by the Victorian Sheriff’s Office as major fine defaulters owing thousands of dollars each. Investigators using automatic numberplate recognition (ANPR) technology scanned more than 9000 cars last month to nab the finedodgers to crackdown on defaulters. They located cars linked to more than 1000 outstanding warrants worth almost $325,000. Seven people paid on the spot, wiping out more $80,000 worth of fines. Officers also warned a further 21 people — who had $120,000 worth of fines between them — that if they did not pay within a week, their license and car registration would be suspended. ANPR technology, which was unveiled in Glen Waverley earlier this year, works with the help of special cameras — mounted to a sheriff’s car — that can scan up to 2000 numberplates in seconds. The data is then matched to a list of cars with fines owing. In the past, sheriff’s officers had to manually enter registration numbers into a database to determine whether there were outstanding warrants. The Sheriff’s Office signalled in August that the technology would be used to trawl suburban shopping centres such as Chadstone for debtors. Victorian Sheriff Brendan Facey said the recent operation was a reminder for finedodgers about the importance of paying on time. Mr Facey encouraged people with outstanding fines to contact the Sheriff’s office to discuss their options before their cars were clamped. ‘‘The earlier you pay your fine, the less you pay. As this operation shows, if you ignore your fines, you will be caught. ‘‘Sheriff’s Officers could be anywhere at any time.’’ People who have outstanding fines can track and pay them by visiting fines.vic.gov.au or calling 1300 SHERIFF.

Speaking out: Ashwood College principal Kerrie Croft has joined the chorus of criticism over the state government’s closure of a mental health program for schools. See page 23.

Let the children walk During October, 11,425 students from 55 Victorian primary schools took part in VicHealth’s Walk to School campaign. The students walked a combined 241,115 kilometres — six times around the circumference of the Earth! Victoria Walks congratulates the students, their families and VicHealth for this wonderful result. We are, however, greatly concerned that not enough is being done to ensure children can walk to school every day of the year. Since the 1970s, the number of children walking to school has more than halved. This is worrying, because walking offers them one of the best opportunities to build physical activity into everyday life. Over 25 per cent of Australian children aged 5-17 are overweight or obese. Obesity is estimated to cost Victoria $14.4 billion each year. Children walking to school is a mark of a healthy community. They want to walk to school, but with such low levels of walking we are failing them and setting them up for a lifetime of poor health. This is an absolute disgrace. Physical activities like walking are the closest thing we have to a wonder drug. They protect against obesity, reduce stress and anxiety and

improve self-confidence, self-esteem, energy levels and the ability to concentrate. Over the past four decades, governments have clearly not done enough to create or maintain walkable communities. Victoria Walks calls on all levels of governments to lift their game and make walking to school and the creation of walkable communities a priority. We need a holistic approach across governments to ensure that we can once again hear children’s footsteps on our streets in great numbers and all Victorians are safe, physically active and walking to local destinations in their everyday lives. Dr Ben Rossiter Executive officer, Victoria Walks www.victoriawalks.org.au

The real pests are us Poor Indian mynas! They didn’t bring themselves here. They were introduced to deal with ‘‘insect pests’’. Another failed solution. Like cane toads. And rabbits. All introduced to Australia by human beings. I have a well-vegetated indigenous garden on three-quarters of an acre: all around me gardens and trees are being obliterated for high-density

housing. My garden is full of native birds : a last refuge. I have no problem with mynas. They only take over when the native birds have been driven out. Australia’s ‘most significant pest?’ Sorry, folks, that mantle must fall squarely on the shoulders of the two-legged pest — Homo Sapiens. Dindy Vaughan, Croydon

PSOs make us feel safer Protective services officers are good for Melbourne’s railway stations and travellers. Railway stations are notorious for being centres of antisocial behaviour, deterring people from supporting the public transport system and putting commuters at risk, especially after dark. PSOs will ensure that railway stations will once again become clean and safe places for all members of the community. A recent survey of public transport users has found that there is an overwhelming level of support for our PSOs. I thank the state Coalition government for committing to such an important initiative and taking seriously the issue of safety on public transport. Paul Last, Mount Waverley

Traders baulk at parking plan BY DANIEL TRAN TRADERS say extra parking rights proposed last week for seniors, war veterans and volunteers will punish businesses throughout Monash. Two Monash councillors want to allow an extra hour of parking beyond local limits for special categories of drivers, including carers of the elderly and disabled. Oakleigh councillor Stephen Dimopoulos and Mulgrave councillor Paul Klisaris have won support for a feasibility study on the plan. The study will investigate the practicality of the scheme, which intends to help senior citizens — including residents, veterans, volunteers and ratepayers over 70 — who have trouble walking but do not qualify for a disability permit. Their carers will also qualify for longer parking. But cafe owner Cr Bill Pontikis said the move would make it harder for retailers to survive. ‘‘If something like this were to come, it would affect the traders in a big way,’’ he said. ‘‘If these people come and sit there all day, of course it’s going to affect our business. It’s

Extra time: Cr Paul Klisaris wants Monash to relax parking restrictions for the elderly, the disabled, veterans and volunteers over 70. Picture Rob Carew hard enough as it is. We don’t want to make it even harder. We want to make it easier. We want to encourage more shoppers, not lose customers.’’ Christo Christophidis, of the Glen Waverley Traders Association, called for the council to abandon the study. He said that the study

would only show how ‘‘obviously detrimental’’ the new plan was to the current parking system. ‘‘I think it will be a waste of money,’’ he said. The proposed plan is the brainchild of Cr Klisaris. During his campaign at the recent council elections, Cr Klisaris had promised to investigate a more far-reaching solution. At the time, he proposed that residents aged over 70 should be given windscreen stickers that would allow them to park for longer. ‘‘Parking is so important and that’s one of the biggest issues in our city,’’ he said. ‘‘We need to look after our seniors.’’ But Cr Pontikis said that the plan could affect customers, who would go elsewhere if they were unable to find parking. ‘‘I understand what Paul is trying to do. I understand where he’s coming from, but it’s got to work as well. ‘‘If it’s not going to work for the wider community, then I don’t think you should just bluntly go ahead and do it. ‘‘I think what we need to look at in all the shopping centres in the city of Monash (and) we need to work together and create more parking.’’

Phony $50 notes aren’t funny money BY DANIEL TRAN FRAUDSTERS are at work in Monash, duping local retailers and customers with fake $50 notes. Manager of Westpac’s Oakleigh branch Michael Alexandridis said his branch started to alert residents and businesses about the fake currency after tellers found a crudely made note while counting bills. He said the fakes might pass muster at a casual glance. ‘‘If a person went into a shop and handed the $50 note over to a sales assistant, it’s quite easy for them to accept the note. But if that note was together with a bundle of other $50 notes, you could quite easily tell that it’s a fake,’’ Mr Alexandridis said. ‘‘‘There have been two or three other instances within a 10-kilometre radius of the Oakleigh branch of fake $50 notes.’’ Mr Alexandridis said staff at Oakleigh had posted alerts for customers at the branch. There have also been reports of fake $100 notes being circulated. When a fake note is

identified, tellers confiscate the item and send it to an investigation team that eventually hands it on to the Reserve Bank of Australia. Mr Alexandridis was certain there were more fakes in circulation that were yet to be brought to the bank’s attention. He said it was simple to check for the fake bills by examining them closely. ‘‘Obviously the fake notes are paper, not polymer. You can tear a fake note but it’s very difficult to tear a polymer note. ‘‘The other thing is the clear window. With a $50 note, you’ll see a picture of the Southern Cross in the window. ‘‘What fraudsters are doing is that they’re basically cutting out that section . . . they’re getting sticky tape and they’re making little fake stars. ‘‘It’s not something that’s of great concern, but at the end of the day it’s an obligation from us to notify our customers and the community in general that they need to be on the lookout because fraudsters are getting more and more cunning.’’

INBRIEF Three months over machete attack A Clayton man who survived a near-fatal machete attack has condemned his attacker’s three-month-jail sentence as too lenient. Nhial ‘Nelly’ Yoa, 29, almost bled to death after his arms and legs were slashed by a machetewielding party-goer at a Sudanese beauty pageant in Braybrook last year. Yoa was ‘‘shattered’’ by the sentence, which includes his attacker, Deyom Machok, being ordered to perform 350 hours of community work. Yoa said that the sentence seemed to play down an act that nearly ended his life: ‘‘There’s got to be tougher sentencing. ‘‘The judge should set an example to the community. ‘‘There’s no deterrent to young guys if they just get three months. His accused attacker was part of a pack of men armed with golf clubs, machetes and baseball bats who had pursued Yoa and his friends into a car park. According to Yoa, he was struck on the right elbow as he blocked a machete swung at his mate’s neck. Yoa says he hadn’t seen a machete wielded in a fight before. ‘‘It was terrifying. I never thought he’d use the machete against me. ‘‘I didn’t think any human being would produce

plus

a deadly weapon and swing it against you. ‘‘A lot of guys in the Sudanese community do carry weapons because they want to look tough and intimidating. ‘‘They want people to talk about them. Even within the African community in Melbourne, they are all against violence.’’

Dialing up an award The Sri Lankan Radio Show, which plays on 3MDR on 97.1FM, has won the best ethnic radio program of the year at the National Multicultural Broadcasting Council awards. The program, which is presented by volunteers and has listeners in Waverley and Clayton, was recognised for its audience engagement and quality. The show also won the People’s Choice Award at 3MDR.

Saving a life Volunteers are desperately needed at Lifeline. The organisation’s chief executive, Jane Hayden, said that volunteers were integral in its bid to make Australia suicide-free. “On average six Australians take their own life each day, which is a sad fact given our belief that suicide is mostly preventable,’’ she said. “Volunteering for Lifeline can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.” Cameron Lucadou-Wells with Daniel Tran

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

Festive games people play easting, talking, singing and playing games: that’s the way to spend your Christmas day. Here are some games for children and adults to enjoy.

F

For children Fill the Christmas stocking Each team needs a sock, a spoon, a bucket and some lollies. Divide the children into teams at one end of the living room and hang up the socks at the other. Place a bucket with lollies and a spoon in front of each team. A child from each team takes a lolly with the spoon, carries it to the sock and puts it inside. The child then runs back to his team and gives the spoon to the next child. The first team to put all the lollies in the sock wins. Sing the Christmas carol Each guest receives a piece of paper and a pencil. They then write down four of their favourite Christmas songs. When the songs have been written down, each is assigned a number from 1-20. To start the competition, the host calls out a random number and the guest who wrote it down has to start singing the corresponding song. The

9ct white gold diamond pendant TWD-0.75ct $1,749 NOW $1,399

host then calls out another number and that person starts singing. The first guest who gets to sing all his/her four songs is the winner. For adults Can you guess the song? This game is good to play right after dessert, when everybody is still at the table. Start by choosing a word from a random Christmas song. Now, the other guests must sing a Christmas song which contains the word, and thereby guess the name of the song. If nobody can guess the name, say “I challenge you” and the challenger must sing the song to confirm that the word is in the lyrics. It is not as easy as you might think, and it’s a lot of fun. Learn more Most people — children and grown-ups — know a lot of parlour and Christmas games. Therefore, it’s a good idea also to ask the guests if they can suggest a good game. Quite often, other guests have experience with games which have worked well on previous occasions. That way, you will also expand your range of Christmas games.

Time to ditch monarch, says republican activist BY DANIEL TRAN

World state: Jieh-Yung Lo was recently elected to the national committee of the Australian Republican Movement. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

THE Queen is ‘‘old-fashioned’’ and ‘‘irrelevant’’ to Australians, who need their own head of state to become more of a player on the world stage, says a prominent Monash councillor. Deputy mayor Jieh-Yung Lo said it was essential for the country to have a president as its head of state rather than the British monarch. ‘‘We want Australians to determine what’s the best for our nation. We want Australians to set the vision for our country and our people, not someone 10,000 miles away,’’ he said. ‘‘The Australian Republican Movement recognises everything that the Queen and the monarch have done for our country, but it’s time to move on and move forward to stand on our own two feet.’’ Cr Lo was recently elected to the national committee of the Australian Republican Movement. He hopes to jumpstart a ‘‘stale’’ and ‘‘one-directional’’ debate about our head of state. ‘‘It’s really about trying to expand the debate just beyond the direction the ARM has been taking for over 15 years.’’ The previous time Australia had the chance to become a

republic occurred with the unsuccessful 1999 referendum proposal. Asked why Australia needed its own head of state, Cr Lo said it was a matter of symbolism. ‘‘If Australia is to become a more active player in the regional and global stage, we need to have our own head

We want Australians to set the vision for our country and our people, not someone 10,000 miles away.’’ — Jieh-Yung Lo of state. ‘‘I understand that a lot of nations that come across dealing with Australia are very confused and not aware of who’s our head of state. ‘‘They think it’s Julia Gillard, but it’s actually not. ‘‘I think for us to fully understand what it means to be Australian, we need our own head of state.’’ Cr Lo said he hoped to create a dialogue on the issue. ‘‘It’s a long time coming and it’s a debate all passionate Australians should be having.’’

Schools rue loss of mental health lifeline BY DANIEL TRAN YOUTH mental health has always been precarious and the Victorian government’s decision to axe a suicideprevention program is another blow to young people, says one Monash educator. Ashwood College principal Kerrie Croft said schools relied heavily on programs like the doomed School Focused Youth Service to support their own programs. ‘‘These sort of programs — the schools can’t afford to run themselves,’’ she said. ‘‘We really do rely on them. ‘‘The withdrawal of such a program that is so widely used across the Monash area would have a significant negative impact.’’ The School Focused Youth Service, which aims to reduce suicide through prevention and early-intervention programs, was set up in 1998 in response to the Kennett government’s Suicide Prevention Taskforce. During 2011-12, 13 schools in the

city took part in the service. It will stop running in its current form by June next year. The state government pays grants to councils around Victoria to run the service. The move has drawn widespread criticism from educators and mental health advocates, including former Australian of the Year and psychiatrist Professor Patrick McGorry. Ms Croft said the program was a ‘‘huge help’’ to schools. She said she was devastated to learn the program had been axed. ‘‘Talking to other principals as well, I know the program has helped many students.’’ She said the service axing meant Ashwood had to re-examine its own programs. ‘‘We can hopefully get together and work out another way of sourcing another program such as this. ‘‘But again, we just don’t have the funds to pay for something like that. ‘‘What I’m hoping is that a program such as the Youth Services will continue in some form.’’

Much hardship and difficulty is caused to job-seekers by misleading advertising placed in employment columns.

All employment advertisements must state clearly the type of job offered and remuneration offered. (i.e. salary package, retainer plus commission or commission only). "Commission only'' jobs are only accepted in these columns PROVIDED that this is clearly stated in the ad AND the employer is paying Workcover and Superannuation. If not, then these advertisements MUST be placed in an alternate classification such as Self Employment Opportunities. Placing misleading advertisements is an offence against the Competition and Consumer Act and all advertisements are subject to the publisher's approval. For further advice contact the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on 9290 1800.

Double win for trainer CRANBOURNE trainer Greg Eurell’s promising four year old Champagne Ruby ended her preparation with a dominant victory in the $35,000 D’Urban Handicap (1600 metres) at Sandown on Wednesday. Champagne Ruby had been the strong flavour at the track after moving in from $2 to $1.60 before the jump. Her victory followed the win of stablemate Zombie Dancer, who scored a similarly easy win at an identical starting price in the $35,000 Schweppes Handicap (1600m) that launched the card. Champagne Ruby’s win came at

her final start for 2012 and took her career record to four wins from nine starts, giving Eurell reason to get excited about what 2013 might hold for the four year old. “The owners have been terrific, they’ve allowed me to place her in the right races to hopefully get the right result and we’ll have a good look at what’s coming up next year for her and try and keep finding the right races for her to progress,” Eurell said. “I think she’ll run 2000 metres and if she can do that it will probably open things up even a little bit more for her.” Champagne Ruby ambled home by three lengths, the same margin that Zombie Dancer had to spare over the nearest of the beaten brigade in the opener. Like Champagne Ruby, who raced outside the leader until

straightening, Zombie Dancer settled in a prominent position before taking over early in the straight and put the result beyond doubt a long way from home. Zombie Dancer was partnered by Brent Evans, while Jamie Mott had the honours aboard Champagne Ruby, who was the first leg of a running double for the hoop. Mott was quickly back in the winners’ stall after the Mike Moroney-trained Between The Beats provided him with a pick-up success in the $35,000 Thomas Sabo Plate (1800m). The $8.50 chance’s victory gave bookmakers some respite after a trying start to the Sportingbet Park card, which saw the heavily backed Adjuster ($3.70 to $3 favourite) score a 2 1⁄ 4-length win in the Perri Cutten Plate in between Eurell’s two victories.

Futuristic Veloster gets a turbo boost Ewan Kennedy road tests Hyundai’s beefed-up ground breaker The Veloster SR has minimal turbo lag and a smooth push in the back. But if you’re looking for a drag racer, the Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo may not be your best bet. As this isn’t a full-blown sports coupe, Hyundai has kept the price of the Veloster SR down by restricting engine torque to the front wheels to prevent wheel spin and understeer. Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo is even more striking in appearance than the standard Veloster, as it’s even more radical in its shape. The front grille is bigger and bolder, the foglights have futuristic shaping to their surrounds, side skirts give the lowered look and the dark glass sunroof adds to the overall effect. The rear windscreen glass is directly above the back seats and created discomfort during the day in our home area of the Gold Coast. We strongly suggest looking at this aspect of the car if your plan is to regularly cart kids back there. Prices for theVeloster SR Turbo start at $31,990, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

he turbocharged version of the Hyundai Veloster, tagged the SR, has only been in Australia a few months but is already generating plenty of sales. When launched in non-turbo format in February, the Hyundai that looked like a coupe on one side and a five-door hatch on the other created a huge number of stares and comments during our entire test period. Some felt it needed more power, though others said it had the sort of engine performance that pleased drivers who enjoyed the decision making necessary to keep their Veloster in the correct gear to get the best out of the 103 kilowatts of power on offer. They also appreciated the low price tag of the non-turbo — it began at an appealing $23,990 in six-speed manual format. In any case, there’s now a choice in Veloster engine power thanks to the introduction of a high(ish) performance SR model. With a 46 per cent increase in power and an even more impressive 60 per cent more torque, it has a lot more poke.

INBRIEF New umps boss Southern Football League has appointed Peter Mair as its director of umpiring. Mair, a former director of umpires in the Alberton Football League, has stood as a field, boundary and goal umpire throughout more than 30 years in football and has umpired in 12 SFL grand finals. In the past four years he has worked as the SFL’s field umpiring coach. AFL chief executive David Cannizzo welcomed Mair’s appointment. “We’re excited to have Peter Mair as director of umpiring,’’ he said. ‘‘Scott Van Noordennen has done an outstanding job over the past five years in developing the umpiring group into what it is today and Peter has been a key player in this growth, working closely with Scott over this time. ‘‘Peter brings with him a vast amount of experience from his corporate position as well as from his various umpiring roles.’’

Coach vacancy Oakleigh District has advertised its senior coaching position, a week after parting ways with respected coach Steve Wright. The club has advertised for either a playing or non-playing coach for the SFL division 2 competition next season. Applications for the job close on December 19.

No Scorps coach Victorian Football League club Casey Scorpions has yet to appoint a coach despite reportedly being close to making an appointment last week. The Scorpions, who surprisingly lost VFL coach of the year Brett Lovett after the season, said last week they could announce the new coach as early as last Monday but have yet to make any further announcements.

Leppitsch to Cobras Brisbane Lions triple premiership full-back Justin Leppitsch has signed on as Sandown Cobras’ No. 1 ticket holder. Leppitsch, currently an assistant coach with AFL club Richmond, will be the face of the club’s membership campaign and appear as keynote speaker at a match day function for the club while also hosting development sessions for club coaches at the Tigers’ Punt Road Oval training complex. He will also attend some training sessions to assist Cobras players and coaches. Leppitsch has a family connection with senior coach Michael Rossborough, who helped lure him to the club. Leppitsch said he looked forward to getting started with the Cobras. “I have been looking for a way to give back more but have not had the appropriate means,’’ he said.

Rookie draft The AFL will host the AFL preseason draft tomorrow. The draft starts at 11am with only a handful of clubs having selections before all clubs turn their attentions to the rookie draft which will follow. The sides who don’t have picks in the preseason draft have already filled their playing list for season 2013. Greater Western Sydney Giants will pick first followed by Western Bulldogs, Port Adelaide, Brisbane Lions, Richmond, Essendon, Carlton and Fremantle. The Giants, Carlton, Fremantle, Collingwood and Sydney Swans will then have second round picks, with the Swans having an additional third round pick. [ 30 ] MONASH WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Back at work: Hawthorn midfielder Alex Woodward is back on the field after a serious knee injury last season. He is pictured last season. Picture: Vince Caligiuri/The Age

Hawk on recovery trail BY ROY WARD A YEAR ago Noble Park resident Alex Woodward was working his way through his first AFL preseason after being drafted to Hawthorn. The now 19 year old completed the preseason and earned a spot in the Hawks side for their first and second NAB Cup matches before tragedy struck when he suffered a serious knee injury which ended his season. While the Hawks went through a dominant season, which culminated in a grand final loss to Sydney, Woodward was in the background doing rehab work with club coaches and learning how to run again, all in the name of being fully fit for preseason training. The teenage midfielder admits 2012 was a year of frustration but he also learned plenty about himself and about life at AFL level while completing the first year of an AFL traineeship in which he tracked an opposition or Hawks midfielder each match. ‘‘It was pretty devastating at the time,’’ he said about his injury. ‘‘I was also frustrated as I had put in the hard yards in preseason just to break down in the second NAB Cup match. ‘‘But I didn’t let the negative feelings get to me, I went to my family for support and they were there for me. December 10, 2012

‘‘I just remained positive and tried to get around my teammates and do everything I could for them.’’ Soon after he suffered the injury, Hawks coaches and doctors decided Woodward would sit out the entire season and not be played at all. For a teenager in his first year in the AFL, Woodward was at times very keen to change their minds but instead stuck strong to the belief

‘There was no point coming back early and I didn’t want to get injured again and go through another horror season.’ Alex Woodward his career would be better in the long run if he got himself fit for the next preseason. ‘‘I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling sort of upbeat and very optimistic at times and wanted to get back playing,’’ he said. ‘‘But I knew a full season off was the best thing development wise. ‘‘There was no point coming back early and I didn’t want to get injured again and go through another horror season. In the end it gave me something to look forward to.’’

A little over three weeks ago Woodward returned to full training with the Hawks as they entered their preseason fitness programs. ‘‘After doing your knee, when you first start running again you need to learn how to run again, so I was doing work on it and once I had that down pat I was really confident in everything else I’ve done,’’ he said. ‘‘I don’t have any doubts about anything with my body.’’ Woodward said he wouldn’t put any additional pressure on himself leading into season 2013 and would take each training session and match as it came. But he is very keen to break into the strong Hawks side and make his senior AFL debut. ‘‘As I said to the coaches, I see every week as a chance to play AFL football and I want to put my hand up every week and be in contention,’’ he said. While AFL preseason matches are still a few months away, Woodward can’t wait to get back into a game situation. He believes he has come out of his injury year as a stronger player and stronger person, now he wants to prove it. ‘‘We haven’t had a set date for our first match but I’m already talking about it, I can’t wait to get my hands dirty and play some matches,’’ he said.


Tigers enjoy a run feast BY ROY WARD GIVE the premiers an inch and they will take a mile. Richmond made the most of North Melbourne’s decision to bowl first in their Premier Cricket clash at Junction Oval on Saturday, powering to 4-361 declared from 80 overs. Even more impressive for the Tigers was that two of their batsmen made centuries, with debutant Andrew Chalkley (116) and Andrew Delmont (104) notching triple figures. The Roos won the toss but ignored the hot conditions and chose to bowl, with the Tigers’ bats making them pay on a lightning fast outfield. Tigers captain Allan Wise said his batsmen couldn’t wait to get to the crease. ‘‘I would have batted but it’s their home ground, so maybe they knew something we didn’t,’’ he said. ‘‘In all the Twenty20 matches of late our mid-

Oaks in control OAKLEIGH bowled itself into a good position heading into the second day of its Victorian Sub District Cricket Association clash against Preston. The undefeated Oaks bowled out Preston for 218 at Warrawee Park on Saturday, keeping the visitors to a chaseable total the home side bats this Saturday. The Oaks bowlers shared the load with Michael Splatt (3-34), Jarrod Travaglia (3-25), Jeremy Devlin (2-43), Dale Croft (1-37) and Ben Pinwill (1-42) all among the wickets. Preston middle-order bats Kevin Lowe (82) and Stephen Nicholls (54) were their side’s best. If the Oaks beat Preston this Saturday and then beat Noble Park in a one-day match on December 22 they will enter the Christmas break undefeated. The Oaks will resume play against Preston at Warrawee Park at 1pm this Saturday. — Roy Ward

dle order hasn’t had a good opportunity to get involved in much batting, so it was good to get some time out there.’’ Chalkley, in his first year at the club after moving from Bendigo, made the most of a longsought-after chance in the first side, hitting 16 fours in his innings. ‘‘To make 100-odd in your debut is a special achievement and it was thoroughly deserved,’’ Wise said. ‘‘He was on the way to a bigger innings until he went out. He is a confident kid who was quite aggressive with the spinners and when the quicks bowled in his areas he played some big shots.’’ Wise also applauded the resolve of Delmont, who had struggled through some patchy form earlier in the season. ‘‘It’s funny that when you are out of form those gaps appear much closer together but Delmont found a way to turn things around and get a 50 in our Twenty20 match during the week, then sud-

denly he was in form,’’ Wise said. ‘‘He backed that performance up on Saturday. Form is a funny thing: it’s temporary and illusive but when it returns you wonder how you lost it in the first place.’’ Wise declared early to give his bowlers a couple of overs at the Roos batsmen, who managed to hold out at 0-17 at stumps. The Tigers will also have a big prize to play for during the week when they face FrankstonPeninsula in their final Twenty20 game. The Tigers are in second place on the Twenty20 ladder. If they win they should earn a spot in the grand final this Sunday. Geelong and Melbourne round out at the top three but face each other on Wednesday night, so it’s expected the loser will fall to third place if Richmond wins. Wise said the Tigers hadn’t crunched the numbers to know if they needed to win by a certain margin to assure themselves of making the final.

Vic squad place a super gift DANDENONG and former Chadstone resident Jack Taylor got the best possible early Christmas present when he was selected in the Victorian under-19 squad on Friday. Taylor, who plays for Premier Cricket side Prahran and is a supplementary player for Big Bash side Melbourne Renegades, will take one of the all-rounder positions in the young Bushrangers when they play in the under-19 national championships in Adelaide from January 7-17. The side will also have to arrange an alternate player for Taylor and batsman Meyrick Buchanan, who is a contracted Renegades player, in case they are selected in the Big Bash side. Hawthorn-Monash University top-order batsman Liam Tonkin is also in the squad as a bottom-age player. The team will be coached by former first-class player turned coach Shawn Flegler, and Australian A spinner Jon Holland, currently recovering from a serious shoulder injury, has agreed to join the side as a mentor to the players. Flegler said his side was ready to make its mark on the championships. “It’s a fairly well balanced squad,” Flegler said. “The guys have jelled pretty well and they seem like they are fairly close-knit. “It will be a good opportunity to have Dutchy [Holland] there as a mentor, he should be good.”

Batsmen to fore in Menzies Shield BY BILL WEEDEN BATSMEN dominated play throughout the Menzies Shield competition on Saturday. Notting Hill Brandon Park won its first game for the season with a comfortable victory over the newly promoted St Paul’s Glen Waverley. For the combine, Craig Baldwin scored 103 and Adam Maxworthy contributed a useful 53. Mt Waverley Uniting had a comfortable victory against Mt Waverley Catholics. Jim Murray, in a makeshift opener role, retired hurt on 99 not out after hitting two fours and a six to move from 85 to 99. He then top-edged a delivery into his face and suffered a broken nose. In Mackay Shield, Monash lost its first game for the season, leaving CUCC Kings and Glen Waverley Cougars as the two remaining undefeated sides in the competition. The SCL’s squad for the Inter-State Churches Carnival from December 27-31 is: Chris Green, captain, Glen Waverley; Cadell Duke, vicecaptain, Mt Waverley Uniting; Ben Dix, Mt Waverley Uniting; Adrian Barake, Mt Waverley Catholics; Hugo Trotter, Toorak-Prahran; Luke Kennedy, Chadstone Harlequin; Andrew Clarkson, Mt Waverley Uniting; Maurice Clayton, Toorak-Prahran; Jake Attwood, St Paul’s Glen Waverley; Chris Filer, Glen Waverley; Matt Goodier, Chadstone Harlequin; Scott Ellis, Chadstone Harlequin; Adam Maxworthy, Notting Hill Brandon Park.
