BY DANIEL TRAN THE body of a Monash University student who died in his room earlier this year lay undiscovered for several days. The student, who was studying medicine, died in May in Briggs Hall, a residence on the Clayton campus that can accommodate up to 300 students. Police have confirmed the body of the young man, from Darwin, was discovered on May 14. They say there were indications he had been

Mair said that under the Residential Tenancy Act, ‘‘Monash University staff must abide by strict rules for entry of premises’’. ‘‘These rules were followed at the family’s instruction and Victoria Police were involved. ‘‘All residential services staff at Monash University are trained to deal with a variety of welfare issues and critical incident management protocols are in place for dealing with situations such as this one.’’ Because of an ongoing investigation by the coroner, Ms Mair declined to to confirm how the student was found. Victoria Police and Monash University have confirmed that an inquest is under way.

A windfall from errant voters BY DANIEL TRAN MONASH council raked in $326,309 in fines from thousands of forgetful or lazy locals who neglected to send in their votes during the previous election. The Victorian Electoral Commission, which was contracted by Monash to enforce voting, slugged 6849 residents with fines for failing to vote at the 2008 council elections. Voters are intially given the benefit of the doubt and asked to provide excuses for not voting. But anyone whose excuses didn’t make the cut, including those who didn’t respond, copped a $56 fine. The council later retracted 1095 notices after speaking to non-voters. Voting is compulsory at a council election for residents on the state electoral roll. Residents aged over 70 are encouraged to vote, as are non-resident property owners, but will not be fined if they don’t. Monash council will use a postal voting system that is expected to cost about $442,000. Ballot packs will be mailed to residents between October 9 and 11 and have to lodge them with the council’s returning officer before voting closes at 6pm on Friday, October 26. Nominations will open this Thursday for the council election and will stay open until noon on

Tuesday, September 25. Councillors Tom Morrissey, Micaela Drieberg, Paul Klisaris, Geoff Lake, Stephen Dimopoulos and Jieh-Yung Lo have already announced that they’ll contest their seats. Mayor Stefanie Perri also said she would be running. Councillors Greg Male, Joy Banerji and Denise McGill confirmed they would not stand. Cr Charlotte Baines was the only councillor who declined to say whether she would run. The Monash Ratepayers have already vowed to try and contest the election in every ward. President Des Olin said that the level of communication between current councillors and the community was ‘‘found wanting’’ and it was time for new blood. ‘‘We’ll be trustworthy in providing transparency, providing the true character of what Monash wants in the muncipality,’’ he said. ‘‘We need to have the community consulted on what’s going on.’’

Actor shows a funny side to family drama BY DANIEL TRAN THE independence Diana Nguyen had craved for so long finally came when her traditional Vietnamese mother found a boy in her daughter’s closet. So at 18 years old, Nguyen found herself newly disowned and without a home. ‘‘Even though I’d always wanted independence, I never thought it would be in that way,’’ she remembers. In some ways, it was a relief. As a child, Nguyen learnt piano and ballet and aspired to be a performer. Her mother, Huong, thought it would eventually all take a back seat when her daughter finally decided to study medicine. But when Nguyen reached year 12, instead of choosing the subjects a future doctor would take, she decided to continue with the performing arts. It was a frightful revelation for her mother, who still had trouble accepting why her daughter kept listening to Britney Spears. Then she found Nguyen’s boyfriend in the closet and things went downhill. So before she had even finished her bachelor of arts at Monash University, Nguyen had already found the top five ways to disappoint her Viet-

Picture: Ted Kloszynski

Like any good performer, Nguyen put all into a short story and eventually made two comedy shows out of it. Her third, Singing 5 ways to

Disappoint Your Vietnamese Mother, will be held at the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Nguyen’s newest performance is aimed at expressing the newfound perspective she’s had on the relationship with her mother. ‘‘I just wanted to a show that shows my own discoveries of who my mother is and understanding where she’s come from,’’ she says. ‘‘Our relationship’s much more better as I’m getting older and she’s seen the success I’m having. ‘‘I think she’s come to accept what I’m doing. ‘‘I’m hoping that by doing this show, it just opens outlets for other people to talk about their own stories.’’ Although she eventually did want her daughter to come back home, Nguyen declined her mother’s offer to move back into her old room ‘‘Once you let a bird out, it’s not going to come back. So that’s what happened.’’ Singing 5 Ways to Disappoint Your Vietnamese Mother will be playing at the Melbourne Fringe Festival from September 26 at Chaplin Karaoke on 428 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne.

says, laughing. He encouraged residents to take part in the ride. ‘‘It’s a great sense of achievement.’’ He had some advice for new riders. ‘‘If you haven’t done it before, do some long rides. It’s really two rides in one. ‘‘Take your time and enjoy it. Don’t try and set a record time — do that later on, get it under your belt first and then work out what you want to do later.’’

‘‘I won’t continue if I’m going to do longterm damage to myself but I’ve done it some years with shoulder injuries and things like that. You have to nurse yourself along but because we’re not racing, you can.’’ Like with any serious physical event, recovery is painful.

MARK Dockrill laughs when he’s asked whether riding hundreds of kilometres around Melbourne ever gets any easier. ‘‘It’s always a tough one; it depends on the conditions,’’ the Chadstone resident says. ‘‘Once you’ve done it as well, you know what you’re in for and you just take it in your stride.’’ This will be the 19th year that Mr Dockrill, 47, will be taking part in Bupa Around the Bay. For him, it’s an annual social event he does with his mates. ‘‘We don’t treat it as a race,’’ he says. ‘‘We take our time. We take all day to do it. We stop and have coffee at different shops. One year when it was hot, we stopped and had a beer in Frankston. We just ride around and chat the whole way and talk crap. ‘‘It’s just a fun day — it’s a great ride.’’ The event is one that Mr Dockrill is determined to finish regardless of rain, hail or shine. ‘‘If the bike fell in half one year, I’d probably just go into a bike shop and buy a $50 bike and finish it.

Hi-tech upgrade a boon for patients he Valley and South Eastern Private hospitals serve the local and wider community with the philosophy that they are two hospitals but the one campus. The Valley is undergoing a $30 million redevelopment and expanding specialities to become the acute ‘full service’ facility for a catchment of more than 1.5 million people. CEO Neil Henderson is committed to excellence in patient care and has paved the way for three “firsts” in technology advancements to be purchased by the hospital. This month, a $4 million state-of-the-art hybrid operating theatre will be a world first. This technology will give cardiologists and surgeons the flexibility and speed to go from an investigative procedure to full open-heart surgery without moving the patient. In another Australian first, surgeons at The Valley trialled a 3D camera system for laparoscopic procedures that will not only improve patient

outcomes but reduce fatigue in doctors during long hours of surgery. Exact depth perception when performing operations is essential for hand-eye co-ordination, and this technology allows for true 3D imaging. Mr Henderson has ordered this equipment as he believes this futurist operating theatre will become standard practice. For patients undergoing orthopaedic or spinal surgery, pre and post imaging is vital. The Valley will soon have EOS — one of only two low dose weightbearing X-ray machines in the country. Its digital images create a 3D bone model of a patient in a standing position, resulting in extremely personalised treatment. “While all this expensive equipment is progressive, we also recognise there is no substitute for excellence in hands-on patient comfort and care,’’ Mr Henderson said. ‘‘Our staff are committed to our mission statement: ‘People first, people always’. ‘‘The emergency department is streamlining waiting times and improving patient processing so beds, specialists and diagnostics are available 24 hours, 356 days of the year.”

FEATURESTORY

In the business: Lei Feng works for B2Cloud making smartphone apps. App happy: Dexter Eugenio is in the midst of developing his first iPhone app.

Picture: Ted Kloszynski

Picture: Rob Carew

An app a day, every day slingshot that has birds flying through the air smashing into pigs. A samurai sword the slices and dices fruit. Simple ideas. Big money. But among all the success stories of apps for smartphones that have gone on to become a global phenomenon there must be many that never really took off. So is it worth taking a risk by dipping a toe into the world of app development — and how do you go about this? Recent statistics show there are now more than 650,000 apps in the iPhone app store and more than 30 billion apps have been downloaded. Google’s store for Android apps offers more than 500,000 apps and has been around for a shorter period than the Apple model. Rowville resident Dexter Eugenio is in the process of developing his first app. He came up with the concept and has outsourced the building of the app to a company based in India. During the development process Mr Eugenio, 35, has been in touch with the developers every day, mainly via Skype conversations. ‘‘I feel like I have 100 per cent control,’’ he says. His is an entertainment app that is a questionand-answer situation posing different challenges in life such as: ‘‘Would you rather earn a lot of money in a job you hate or make little money doing a job you love?’’ The questions and answers can then be shared via social media. ‘‘The app is still about a month away,’’ says Mr

These days it really seems there is an application — or app — on your phone for everything. You can watch a baby grow, use a timer to cook the perfect egg and get advice on local restaurants. But have we reached an app saturation point or are there still good ideas to be had? CLAIRE THWAITES investigates what Melbourne’s east is up to when it comes to app development. Eugenio, who works in IT and has toyed with app ideas before. ‘‘But I wanted something that is very easy to share.’’ He said there will be both a free and paid version of the app — named Chooze — with the free app having banner ads incorporated. ‘‘I didn’t think I was just going to create this app and make millions straightaway. ‘‘But I did some research and found the marketing of the app is more important than the app itself. I want this app to get me noticed. ‘‘I can’t wait for it to be finished.’’ Clayton resident Lei Feng is an app developer who works for Armadale-based business B2Cloud. He says the biggest goal for him when developing an app is to ensure it is user-friendly. ‘‘It’s all about maximising user experience. ‘‘You really want to hide that technical detail from users and make it engaging.’’ He says anyone thinking of creating an app needs to have a clear direction about how the app will work and that it will be simple to use. Recent apps Mr Feng has worked on include September 17, 2012

an Ambulance Victoria app that instructs people on CPR procedures and other first aid tips, a guide and tourism app for the Great Ocean Road and Thinking Of You, a social networking app that has been available for the past two weeks and helps people buy presents for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. The apps can take anywhere from one to three months to create. He says offshore app creators like the ones Mr Eugenio is using do not pose a huge threat to local business as many people still prefer face-toface consultation. ‘‘If you go overseas then they are not going to be as efficient and accountability will drop.’’ Mr Feng, who studied at Monash University, believes the market has not been saturated yet — particularly among Australians, who are keen consumers of apps. ‘‘We still have a long way to go. It’s a huge market.’’ Deputy chief executive officer at Yarra Ranges Regional Marketing Lincoln Wilson has been in the app game for a while now. His was the first regional tourism body to have

an app — a tourism app, launched in June 2010, that is a visitor’s guide to the Yarra Valley and Dandenongs. Since then the free app has been downloaded more than 6000 times. Mr Wilson says the biggest challenge YRRM faces with the app is waiting in queues at Apple for updates to go through. He says there are ways around this when creating a new app by making it manually updateable — something he highly recommends. ‘‘They are not always that easy to be updated,’’ he says. ‘‘Your updates go into a queue at Apple and then you have to wait until it gets checked by an actual person on the other end. ‘‘It used to only be about nine or 10 days — now that there are so many apps it is months. ‘‘There was a period when the wait was four or five months. It can be quite painful.’’ He says as Apple gets a commission on the paid apps they tend to get priority over free apps. Yarra Ranges has also joined with the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island in the app named Melb Touring, which was released just over a fortnight ago. So whether it be finding love or finding a decent coffee — there are apps out there to make our lives easier, more organised and to keep us entertained. And with reports of a nine year old in Singapore writing his own app — you are never to young to give app development a go — it could be your ticket to financial success.

Cooking with the kids Tiny Teddy cars

3-ingredient biscuits

Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 2 mins Ingredients: • 100g milk chocolate, melted • 1 bag Milky Way bars (you will need 24) • 1 box Tiny Teddy biscuits, honey flavour • 1 bag Smarties (340g) Method: Set out a tray or serving plate for the Teddies. Sort the Smarties into colours and cut 12 Smarties in half with a sharp knife to use for steering wheels (keep in mind steering wheel colours need to match with wheel colours). Remove the wrappers from the Milky Way bars. Cut 24 Tiny Teddies in half at the belly button using a sharp knife. Place the melted chocolate into a resealable bag and snip a tiny corner off. Squeeze out a few drops of chocolate to glue 4 Smarties ‘wheels’ on each car then place on the serving tray. Place a few drops of chocolate on the top of each ‘car’ and sit the Teddy’s on. Place a drop of chocolate on the ‘car’ in the front of each Teddy and glue on steering wheels.

Prep Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 15 mins Ingredients: • 1 cup peanut butter • 1 cup caster sugar • 1 egg Method: Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside. Place all ingredients into a bowl and combine well. Roll tablespoon sized balls and place on the tray. Push down each one with a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes and then further cool on a wire rack. Notes: • If you mixture is a little too dry you can add a few drops of milk to moisten it. • I like to make a double batch of these so we cook once and then eat twice. • These are delicious if you spread Nutella on them and sandwich them together.

An Aussie baker’s leaven ’em in awe BY DANIEL TRAN WHEN he started baking, Scott Megee never thought he’d one day be representing the nation. The 39 year old will compete in Germany today at the IBA awards, an international baking competition held every three years. What’s remarkable is that the Cockatoo resident, who teaches baking at the Holmesglen Institute of TAFE, has been in the craft for only about four years. Mr Megee originally trained as a commercial chef and spent more than a decade in the field before going into teaching at Holmesglen, during which time he decided to re-qualify as a baker. ‘‘I’ve always had a passion for bread,’’ he says. ‘‘Then I started teaching baking and while I was doing that, I started competing overseas and learning.’’ In 2009, the International Specialised Skills Institute awarded Mr Megee a $10,000 fellowship to research grain and rye breads in Belgium and the US. Although this year’s competition will be his

Heaps of dough: Scott Megee will be showing off his baking skills in Germany today.

third trip overseas, he says it’s still an honour. ‘‘You’re always nervous about putting your skills against the rest of the world and hopefully coming out on top. ‘‘Because of my chefing background, it enables me to come up with creative flavour combinations because in cookery we’re taught about flavour, combinations and textures not necessarily in baking. So I think that gives me an advantage.’’ Mr Megee and his teammate Shayne Greenman will be one of 12 teams who will be judged over three days on their baking skills. In new kitchens with unfamiliar flour, Mr Megee will have 71⁄ 2 hours to make a variety of Danish, bread and other bakery items. It’s a tough task, but it’s one they know they’re up to. ‘‘The last practice we did, we had three minutes to spare in the seven and a half hours,’’ he says. Despite his successes, Mr Megee is modest. ‘‘I hesitate to call myself good. I think I’ve just been in the right place at the right time. I love to learn, so I think that just puts me in a good place to be where I am.’’

A cultivated passion BY DANIEL TRAN rowing orchids is like a disease, according to Jeff Walker. ‘‘They’re an interesting plant and they hook you,’’ he says. The 80-year-old joined the Australasian National Orchid Society about a decade ago and has been taken with the flowers ever since he bought his first green cymbidium. Mr Walker will be only one of the people displaying their orchids at the society’s spring show in the Mount Waverley Community Centre on September 29-30. ‘‘The display this year’s particularly good,’’ he says. The show will feature a range of natural and potted orchids in addition to art and photography. There will be plants for sale and members will be patrolling the show, ready for any questions to be fired at them. Mr Walker started growing orchids after he retired and it’s the challenge of getting the plant to flower that keeps him getting out of bed. ‘‘They usually flower regularly every year. Some years are better than others.’’

So what happens if things go awry? ‘‘You live with it.’’ He has about 100 orchids at the moment and spends about an hour a week nurturing them and several more hours thinking about them. ‘‘We’ve got thousands of species of native orchids in our forests. It was those that I got interested in and there’s a tremendous range of them.’’ Of his orchids, Mr Walker says it’s the natural ones that need the least attention. ‘‘As you can imagine, they grow out in the forest and nobody ever does anything with them.’’ He encouraged locals interested in growing orchids to come along to the show. ‘‘Come along and buy one or two and see how you go. And come along next year and buy some more,’’ he says with a laugh.

Time to exult, ye choristers or over half a century, they’ve enthralled residents and students with their music and this weekend will be no different for the Monash University Choral Society. The society will be marking its 50th anniversary with a special show in South Yarra this Saturday after a stellar year of performances. The society’s Ella Webb says the gala concert, at the Melbourne High School memorial hall, will feature pieces like Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, widely regarded as one of the most popular pieces of choral music ever composed. The society started in 1962 and has more than 100 members on its books. On a good week, rehearsals have up to 60 members, some of whom are the second generation in their family to be part of the group. ‘‘We’re all very, very close,’’ Ms Webb says. ‘‘Every night after rehearsal we go to the pub and if we’re not going to the pub, we’re going to someone’s place for coffee. It’s just a wonderful place and a wonderful society to be a part of.’’

Sweet sounds: The Monash University Choral Society is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Picture: Gary Sissons Ms Webb joined the choir in late 2010 out of a love for music. ‘‘I actually had never really sung in a choir previously but I’ve always liked the idea. ‘‘I went along just to have a look and I was absolutely blown away. ‘‘I found listening to the harmonies of the basses and tenors unbelievably beautiful.’’ The concert is at 7.30pm on Saturday, at the Melbourne High School Memorial Hall, Alexandra Avenue, South Yarra. Cost: $37, concessions available. Monash Weekly readers can get $5 off every ticket by entering booking code ORFF1. Details: committee@monucs.aicsa.org.au. To buy tickets, visit trybooking.com/bunp.

Cobras’ moment of truth BY ROY WARD SANDOWN has the belief — now it has to turn it into a premiership. The Cobras scored an extra-time win over Doveton Eagles in the Southern Football League division 3 preliminary final on Saturday. They will now face Moorabbin in the grand final at Ben Kavanagh Reserve, Mordialloc, this Saturday. It will be the club’s first senior grand final appearance since the late 1990s. The Cobras came back from a fivegoal deficit in the second quarter to tie the game in the final term. Cobras playing assistant coach Daniel Macklin said his side could have snared the match late in the final term after forward John Frenken missed a set shot for goal. But Frenken made up for his miss in extra time, kicking a running goal to give his side a six-point win.

Macklin said the Cobras now believed they could win the flag despite the Kangaroos being slight favourites. ‘‘We know this opportunity doesn’t come around very frequently, so we have to make the most of it. ‘‘We’ve had some very close games with Moorabbin and every one was decided by less than a goal. We were up with three minutes to go in the semi-final, then they kicked the last two goals. ‘‘I think whoever wins the contested ball will win the match. We believe we are a more skilled and fitter side. Now we have to prove it.’’ Macklin said the Cobras had no injury problems. He also commended Doveton Eagles for their play this season. ‘‘You have got to feel for them. They are a skilled team who played very well and conducted themselves well.’’ Macklin believes major improve-

ments in their professionalism have led to the team’s success along with the tireless work from club volunteers like long-time servant Lewis Short. ‘‘To see the look on Lew’s face after the game was amazing,’’ he said. ‘‘The club has had a bad history but we have come a long way and everyone was thrilled that we have got there.’’ See more SFL division 3 preliminary final pictures at greaterdandenongweekly.com.au.

IT doesn’t matter whether they play at 10.30 in the morning or 10.30 at night, Oakleigh Chargers are ready for battle against Gippsland Power in the TAC Cup grand final at Etihad Stadium this Sunday morning. The Chargers will look to continue their excellent finals form, which has had them rise from outside the top four to make the grand final against the minor premier Power, the form side all season. Chargers coach Justin Wenke said his side had hit form at the best time of the year. He said his side had performed well during its morning matches this season, including two finals wins at 11.15am. ‘‘With such a huge prize on the line it wouldn’t matter when they played. ‘‘We played our first two finals matches in the morning. We like the early games. I think it replicates a school day and the boys don’t mind it. ‘‘Sometimes when it comes to the afternoon games the boys sleep in later, which changes what they are used to.’’ On Saturday, the Chargers had to beat out North Ballarat Rebels in their preliminary final clash at Visy Park, Carlton, and they did it in style, winning by 83 points. Wenke said his side had focused on being strong around the football and establishing possession of the ball before looking to attack. ‘‘We were just able to win the ball at the coalface. ‘‘We had a really strong focus on winning the ball before we try to run and create. We also had terrific effi-

ciency in our forward line with about 70 per cent efficiency, which was about our highest percentage of the season.’’ Forward efficiency is the number of times the team went inside 50 against how many scores [goals or behinds] were created. Forward-midfielder Jackson MacRae was named best player with three goals and a number of scoring assists. Centre half-back Sam Collins and captain Ryan Exon also played key roles in the win. Wenke has urged his players to enjoy the lead-up to the grand final and the chance to play on Etihad Stadium. ‘‘I mentioned to the boys that for some of them it might be their only chance to play on an AFL ground and they should make the most of it. ‘‘We like playing on good-sized grounds — they suit our style of play.’’ After being forced to chop and change the side at regular intervals during the season due to having a number of players who play private school football, Wenke said the current Chargers side had come into its own in the past six weeks following the end of the private school season. ‘‘The team is more settled and the guys who have come back have probably played seven of our last 10 games. ‘‘The kids we have are very coachable, listen to instructions and execute our game plan. ‘‘I think we are playing a very attractive brand of football that’s good to watch and we are getting some high scores as well. ‘‘Gippsland has been the No. 1 side during the home and away season if you look at contested possessions and

OAKLEIGH Cricket Club has earned a big victory before the first ball has been bowled in the Victorian Sub District Cricket Association season. The Oaks have won approval from Monash council to add the name of 57-year volunteer Rowland Williams to the Wilkinson Stand at its Warrawee Park home ground. It will be renamed the Wilkinson Williams stand early next year, coinciding with Williams’ 80th birthday on January 28. The Oaks submitted a highly detailed paper to the council listing Williams’ long list of achievements at the club and in cricket umpiring, along with work at local baseball and junior cricket clubs. The Oaks got support for the change from state MP Ann Barker, the Southern District and Churches Cricket League and TAC Cup club Oakleigh Chargers, which is based at Warrawee Park. The Oaks also made it clear they did not want to diminish the standing of Bill Wilkinson, after whom the stand was originally named, but did want to acknowledge the long service of Williams, who is affectionately known as ‘Roly’. The newly renamed stand is expected to be officially opened in late January. — Roy Ward

Elvis on song as District kicks on BY ROY WARD ELVIS may have left the building, but he has put his stamp on the Southern Football League division 2 finals series with a match-winning performance for Oakleigh District on Saturday. District star Elvis Alimovski kicked seven goals to lead his side to the SFL division 2 grand final against East Malvern at Jack Barker Oval, Sandringham this Saturday. District coach Steven Wright said Alimovski, who switches between forward and midfield, was a key player in District’s 43-point win over Skye in the preliminary final.

‘‘He played very well and spent pretty much all day in the forward line,’’ Wright said. ‘‘He is just a focal point and is always good for us. ‘‘He also takes a good player from the opposition.’’ Wright commended his players on their efforts to beat Skye, with whom they have had several close battles this season. ‘‘We played a good brand of footy and it’s pleasing when everything falls into place,’’ he said. ‘‘We trailed at quarter time but came back at them and at half-time we spoke about the fact

they would keep coming back at us. It was a day to grind out a win and we managed to do that.’’ Wright said his side would take the game up to East Malvern in the grand final. ‘‘We have had one win each against each other this season. They have some very good players so we will have to get our match-ups right and then it will come down to giving it our best shot on the day.’’ Wright said making the grand final was a boost for the whole club. ‘‘Getting to the grand final is always a reward for the volunteers and the people at board level who put in lots of work over the season.

‘‘The players are the lucky ones who get to run out and play on grand final day.’’ Oakleigh District plays East Malvern in the SFL division 2 grand final at Jack Barker Oval, Sandringham this Saturday at 2pm Scores: Oakleigh District 2.6, 6.6, 10.10, 15.15 (105) d Skye 3.2, 5.7, 8.7, 9.8 (62) Goals: Oakleigh District: E Alimovski 7, S Danilovic, J Isaac 2, J Wright, P Fermanis, T Bevacqua, G Mason.Best: Oakleigh District: E Alimovski, J Isaac, D Kiellerup, S Arvanitis, P Fermanis, L Gangemi.

Hawks denied glory again GLEN Waverley Hawks president Steve Potts believes his club will bounce back from a secondstraight grand final loss. The Hawks had a horror day in the Eastern Football League division 3 grand final on Saturday, losing to North Ringwood by 137 points at East Burwood Reserve. After Hawks forward Simon Grasser kicked the opening goal of the match the Saints assumed full control of the game, with the premiership all but decided by half-time as the Saints held a 75-point lead. The Saints will now move up to division 2 next year while the Hawks will stay in division 3. Potts said his side had faced a ‘‘red hot’’ opponent in the Saints and would respond to the disappointment of such a tough loss. “We have to look at the whole of the season as a success to see where we’ve come from and what we have done to win 15 games in the season,” he said. “Then see what to do to improve, maybe get more of our players to buy in and do a proper pre-season, as a few of them came in underdone.” Potts also laid down the challenge to the Hawks players to go one better in their next grand final appearance. “The biggest negative to come out is we have lost two grand finals in a row, which is a bad thing. It’s different divisions but still not a good thing because it hangs over your head. “If we get to another one are you going to win? Because if you lose another one suddenly people will say you don’t know how to win one. “We don’t want to get to that point.” The Hawks lost in extra time to Heathmont in last year’s division 4 grand final but were still promoted following the entry of Park Orchards to the competition. The Hawks had planned for a three-season stay in division 3 to boost their playing list to the standard needed to compete at division 2 level. Potts said his club would continue with that plan. “We are a little short of [division 2] still, so what we have to do now is go out and recruit

Heavy pressure: Glen Waverley Hawks ruckman Danny Kennaugh gets a kick away during the EFL division 3 grand final on Saturday. the right players and if it takes more years until we get a go at it then so be it. “We have to build a good enough list to cut it in division 2. Today we found ourselves a little bit short. If it takes those three years, so be it. “We’ve had a fantastic season. “I wish they [North Ringwood] had won it last year. Then they wouldn’t be here today. “Then again, we weren’t supposed to be here either, at least by the way the league works most seasons.’’

The Hawks move grounds next year, taking up their new home at Central Reserve, Glen Waverley. “We will keep building the place up as much as we can,’’ Potts said. ‘‘We have come from pretty far back and still have plenty of work to go.” More grand final pictures at monashweekly.com.au.
