OUR COVER: Strathmore’s Ben Bese flies for the ball in the EDFL Premier Division grand final. Story: Page 90. Picture: Darren Howe

Knowing what to say, and when ny woman who has ever been to a beauty therapist knows they provide services that go more than skin deep. Lying on the treatment table with the lights dimmed and the gentle voice of the therapist asking how you’ve been is the modern take on the confessional. And sometimes, in these unguarded moments, talk turns to the worries in our lives. This explains how on a recent visit to have a lash and brow tint, I found myself suddenly in tears. Now I can tell you it’s not a great idea to cry while you’re having your eyelashes tinted, but it’s beyond stupid to actually open your eyes at the same time. My symptoms had barely subsided three days later. So with eyes flaming like fires of hell, my nose streaming and my larynx swollen to the size of a tennis ball I went to the doctor. She listened to the sorry story of the bizarre tinting incident like it might just be the dumbest thing she had ever heard. “So you burnt your eyes with chemicals by opening them when you shouldn’t, which caused an allergic reaction and on top of that you have a very mild respiratory complaint.” But it was her next remark that truly stunned me. “Now, would you like something for the depression?” she asked. I looked at her in astonishment, and, miraculously finding myself able to focus clearly again, took in the moustache on her upper lip. Her eyebrows were unshapely and with tweezers I could yank out that whisker on her chin. No thanks, sister. But I could tell you the name of a really good therapist.

INBRIEF Cr Giuliano case adjourned Moonee Valley councillor Paul Giuliano will appear at the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court on October 19 after his case, originally scheduled for September 16, was adjourned. Cr Giuliano was due to answer a charge related to an alleged breach of the Local Government Act. The charge was brought by the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate. The inspectorate alleges he breached section 76D of the Local Government Act during his term as mayor in 2009 by misusing his position to obtain an advantage for former chief executive Rasiah Dev. Cr Giuliano has vehemently denied the allegations. It’s believed the matter was adjourned while Cr Giuliano’s legal representation awaits further paperwork from the inspectorate.

Draft plan for civic plaza Moonee Valley Council has endorsed a draft landscape concept plan to upgrade Leake Street in North Essendon. The draft plan proposes a civic plaza in the street as well as improve traffic safety and pedestrian facilities.

Scouts and Guides’ grab for cash Scout and Girl Guide groups in Moonee Valley can now apply for state funding to improve the safety, functionality and longevity of facilities. Groups across Victoria are being encouraged to apply for this final round of funding, as part of the government’s scouts and guides facilities grant. Details: go to youthcentral.vic.gov.au, vicscouts.com.au or girlguidesvic.org.au. Applications close November 16.

First in, best dressed for race night Moonee Valley’s mayoral charity community race night will be held on Friday, October 5 at Moonee Valley Racecourse. Free tickets are available from the Moonee Ponds Civic Centre, but numbers are limited so it’s first in, best dressed. The event is designed to raise funds for local and international charities through sponsorship support. This year proceeds from the night will go to support the East Timor community of Liquica´ and Essendon Historical Society. Mayor Jim Cusack said the race night was a great opportunity for the community to enjoy a fun night out, while raising money to support two worthwhile charities. Gates open at 5.15pm.

BY EUGENE BENSON MORE jobs are set to be slashed from Essendon and Moonee Ponds Kangan Institute of TAFE campuses as the fallout from the state government’s $290 million funding cuts to TAFE education continues to be felt. Funding of $25 million has been cut from Kangan, resulting in the closure of 52 courses across the north-western suburbs. So far, 50 staff have been retrenched, but Kangan chief executive Ray Griffiths said more

MOONEE Ponds resident Charles Nuciforo is pedalling for cash. The recreational cyclist is training to push his body to the limit as he attempts the 210-kilometre Around The Bay in a Day ride. Mr Nuciforo is also planning to raise as much money as possible for disadvantaged children. The Smith Family is the official charity partner for Around the Bay, which is Australia’s largest single-day, mass participation bike ride. Mr Nuciforo said that since he made it through last year’s race he would try again but with the added incentive of fund-raising for a good cause. “Last year, I could hardly believe that I’d made the 210-kilometre trip.The ride was challenging, with strong winds, rain and sunshine—in other words your typical Melbourne day,’’ he said. ‘‘I also had a buddy who was a serial victim of bicycle punctures.’’ Mr Nuciforo wants to raise $2000 for The Smith Family. “I feel for children in need and so does The Smith Family, so it’s a great alignment.” In the past three Riding For the Kids events, the riding team Mr Nuciforo has joined raised $70,000 for The Smith Family.

cuts would be announced. The Essendon and Moonee Ponds campuses will not be spared from the cuts. ‘‘At least another 100 jobs are at risk between now and the end of the year,’’ Mr Griffiths said. ‘‘We believe it will end up being a total of 150 to 200 jobs that go. Clearly whatever you say about it, it’s really regrettable that this has to happen. It’s not any of these people’s fault.’’ Mr Griffiths said that in presenting its ‘transition plan’ to the state government — the blueprint of how the TAFE would function without

significant funding — Kangan also asked for the funding cuts to be reversed. ‘‘I don’t think there is any point dodging the issue; in this transition plan, the Kangan Institute has asked the state government to reconsider its market model and reconsider a return of full service provider funding to public TAFE institutes.’’ Courses dropped at Moonee Ponds and Essendon include the diploma of leisure and health, diploma of practice management, certificate II in retail, certificate III in retail and certificate IV in printing and graphic arts.

Shoppers filthy on food mall, loos WESTFIELD in Airport West is in the running to win the unenviable ‘Grimey Award’ after 586 shoppers took part in a national vote to decide Australia’s filthiest shopping centre. Shoppers nominated their pick for dirtiest shopping centre toilets, dirtiest mall food court and the filthiest shopping centre overall. The survey was conducted by United Voice, the union body for cleaners. Westfield Airport West is among 13 nominees for the overall award, and is also in the running for the dirtiest toilets and filthiest food court categories. Dirty habits: Westfield Shoppingtown faces the dubious honour of being named Australia’s filthiest shopping centre. Picture Darren Howe

The winners of the dubious honour will be announced later this month and will be presented with a trophy featuring a gold cockroach. United Voice assistant secretary Ben Redford said many cleaners in Victoria were overworked. Mr Redford said shopping centre cleaners walked an average of 15 kilometres for every shift. ‘‘For years cleaners have been telling us that they have been given more and more work to do in less and less time. Shopping centres have been cutting back on cleaning contracts even as malls enjoy massive expansions, so it’s no wonder cleaners cannot maintain hygiene standards. ‘‘And they’re doing all this for poverty pay – as little as $17.05 an hour, or not much more than $600 a week – and that’s left them struggling

to pay bills and raise their families.” This meant shoppers must endure ‘‘disgusting toilets and dirty food courts, and could even be risking their health every time they go shopping at a major mall’’, he said. “Owners of big shopping malls like Westfield spend a fortune making their centres bigger and bigger, but then also try to save money by not employing enough cleaners. The result has been brutal workloads for cleaners, who have little choice but to cut corners to get through these workloads. ‘‘That means malls like Westfield Airport West are repulsing the very shoppers they’re supposed to attract,” Mr Redford added. Westfield management had not returned the Weekly’s calls at the time it went to press. — Eugene Benson

Ambulance response times lengthen BY EUGENE BENSON AMBULANCE response times for lifethreatening emergencies have lengthened in Essendon and Moonee Ponds since the change in government in late 2010, according to documents obtained by Essendon MP Justin Madden. Mr Madden said the documents, gained under freedom of information, reveal one in four ambulances were failing to respond to life-threatening emergencies within the government’s statewide target of 15 minutes. In Moonee Ponds, the average response time in 2009-10 was nine minutes, 30 seconds. This jumped by more than two minutes to 11 minutes, 40 seconds in 2011. In Essendon, the response time in 2009-10 was 10 minutes, 55 seconds, increasing by more than a minute in 2011 to 12 minutes and 9 seconds. The 2009-10 response times have been

Taking longer: Ambulance response times in parts of Moonee Valley have increased by more than two minutes. hospital transfer times and availability of crews. “[Response times] are not the only measure of a quality ambulance service,’’ Mr Thomson said. ‘‘We continue to see improvements in the more

important measures of whether people live or die, and the quality of their life, for cardiac arrest, heart attack, stroke and head trauma patients. “Our research shows that survival rates from cardiac arrest continue to improve across the state with them doubling in rural Victoria since 2008. “The information collected through centralised call-taking allows us to better map demand for ambulances by time of day and location and better plan our service. ‘‘It also means we have live information that allows us to move ambulances around in a very flexible way to get the best response and medical outcomes for our patients.’’ Mr Thomson said Ambulance Victoria transported about 1750 patients to hospital each day, with the number of patients rising from 616,982 in 2009-10 to 639,735 in 2010-11.

sourced from the Victorian Auditor General. Mr Madden quoted Ted Baillieu as saying before the 2010 election that Victorians deserved the highest-quality ambulance services and had the right to expect timely responses during emergencies. He said response times were going backwards and placing Victorian lives at risk. “These figures reveal that ambulances are taking longer to reach car accidents and heart attack victims in need of life-saving assistance. “Every minute counts when it comes to ambulance response times — we know that the speed in which a patient reaches hospital can affect a patient’s chances of recovery.” Ambulance Victoria’s regional manager for metro west, Simon Thomson, said response times could be affected by factors including traffic, road and weather conditions, distance required to travel, demand for ambulance services,

udgment day for Moonee Valley Council is less than six weeks away and hopefully the many community-spirited citizens among us will consider standing, when nominations for October’s elections open on Thursday through the Victorian Electoral Commission. A number of issues are beginning to emerge about the present council but those who have an ability to contribute need to step up to the plate and challenge it. At least one vacancy exists with Cr James Rankin’s decision not to renominate. Hopefully many who do stand will have a genuine interest in building Moonee Valley and will want to be elected for the right reasons. Only 19 stood for the nine vacancies at the 2008 election compared with 48 candidates a decade earlier.

Coffee shop creates a stir Many shoppers can relate their disappointing experiences with discourteous and disinterested sales staff. The business pays the price because most of us never return. At the same time sales staff will often tell us that we the shoppers could do with a lesson or three in courtesy at times. So an entrepreneurial coffee shop in Puckle Street is rewarding its polite customers with a discount for courtesy. Surely a first, Cafeteria Luis advertises on its windows that one cup of latte is $3.50. But if you order “one cup of latte please”, that same brew will only cost you $3.20.

It’s two months since ANZ walked out on its North Essendon customers, leaving quite a mess behind. Shoppers are critical of the rubbish, both inside the former office and in its front doorway. Scraps of paper and files laying around the floor in full view of the public are not a good look. But their rubbish bin sits in the doorway over-brimming with pizza cartons and cardboard. A good neighbour put the bin out for collection for a few weeks but has now rightly decided the bank needs to take some responsibility themselves. Because another business in the strip will not pay for a bin of its own, it fills the ANZ bin with discarded paperwork and files. The bank simply needs to remove the bin and the nearby business needs a lesson in being good corporate citizens.

The final word. . . Do not envy the one you admire most, instead try to make yourself one who can be envied.

Connecting builds trust BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

Mentor program: Domenic Maitian and Girma Seid.

Picture: Scott McNaughton

MOST days South Sudan refugee Zac tries to forget his childhood. ‘‘Sometimes I would look up at the sky and say to myself, ‘Is this life?’’ he says. ‘‘You’re just living day by day, hoping you will make it to the next. ‘‘There’s no facilities, no food. There were bandits who would come and steal everything in the night. Every day somebody new would die.’’ Zac, 20, who did not want his surname published, said African youth faced many obstacles settling into life in Australia. He’s now part of a Sunshine multicultural centre, which is reconnecting disengaged African youth with their communities. The Centre for Multicultural Youth’s Young African Men’s Project (YAMP) aims to strengthen relationships between young African men, police and the wider society. YAMP project officer Girma Seid says the program teaches participants about life skills, drug and alcohol treatment services in the area and

improving their dealings with police. As reported by the Weekly, police last month released data showing Somali and Sudanese-born Victorians are five times more likely to commit offences than the broader population, while a 2010 Victoria University survey of Sudanese and Pacific Islander teens found they lacked trust and confidence in police. Mr Seid said his team ventured to areas with significant African population, such as Sunshine, St Albans, Footscray and Flemington, to connect with young men. ‘‘We build up trust by going out to where they are and just talking with them,’’ he said. ‘‘A lot of these boys don’t trust anybody; they are vulnerable, they feel isolated. They don’t even know that there are support services for them.’’ Earlier this month, the centre hosted a camp in Kinglake for more than 20 young African men from the west. Youth workers and Footscray police officers also attended. It was the third such camp since 2009, all intended to ease tension between African youth

and police. After coming to Australia 10 years ago and spending six months in English classes, Zac was enrolled in a school in St Albans. He said he moved schools about six times before being expelled in year 9. ‘‘It wasn’t that I didn’t want to learn. It was just that I was so far behind all the other students who were born in Australia and no matter how hard I tried I could never catch up.’’ Zac turned to alcohol and drugs, congregating with his friends in parks during school hours. ‘‘We connect with each other because we all feel the same . . . we have come from some place and we’re struggling to fit in. It’s an escape from reality and the rejection we feel. But people see us and because of the colour of our skin we are labelled as a gang, as troublemakers.’’ Camp leader Domenic Maitian, 24, said recent profiling of Sudanese and Somalian-born residents further marginalised African youth. ‘‘The majority are being held accountable for the minority,’’ he said.

Time to build a career BY EUGENE BENSON AFTER just one term, Moonee Valley’s youngest councillor, James Rankin, has announced he will not run again for Myrnong ward in the coming local government election. Cr Rankin was elected in 2008 as a 25-year-old and stood to be a voice for Moonee Valley’s youth and generation-Y. Now four years older and wiser, he believes he needs to step away from council duties to focus on his career and family. Cr Rankin, a lawyer, said he didn’t think being a councillor suited someone in their late 20s or early 30s if they wanted to focus on a profession. ‘‘In my earlier 20s I was able to serve the demands of being a councillor adequately, but now in my late 20s and upwards into early 30s I’ve got to spend more time focusing on my Moving on: James Rankin will not contest the Myrnong ward in the Moonee Valley Council election in October.

My girlfriend and I have spoken about living and working overseas; that’s one thing. ‘‘I’ve also been given a career opportunity working with Australian Unity’s in-house team, which I can’t refuse. He said it had been an honour to serve on Moonee Valley Council and represent the community he grew up in. ‘‘I’ve enjoyed every moment. ‘‘‘Over the past four years I have had the opportunity to meet some truly remarkable people who live and work in Moonee Valley. ‘‘The diversity of our community is one of our greatest strengths. ‘‘I’m proud to have had the opportunity to work with people who have come from across the world, often fleeing war and poverty, and sought to build their life here in Moonee Valley.’’ Earlier this year, Cr Rankin represented the council, joining a small group of Moonee Valley students and police on an adventure across the

Kokoda Track. He cites the trip as a highlight of his time on council and a terrific way to bring his duties to an end. ‘‘I’m committed to maintaining my links with the police officers, students and sponsors I forged bonds with on the Kokoda Track. ‘‘I’m already helping one student from Mount Alexander College with some year 11 tutoring.’’ ‘‘I’ve always been passionate about the contribution young people can make to our community. ‘‘Over my term on council I’ve had the opportunity to work with many inspiring young people from across the municipality. ‘‘I would encourage any interested young people to get involved in politics and speak up about the issues that matter to them. During his term Cr Rankin was elected as Moonee Valley’s youngest ever deputy mayor. He will continue to serve as a councillor until his term expires next month.

MENS & LADIES

Councillors ready, willing for fresh tilt ALL bar one of Moonee Valley’s councillors have announced they will contest again, despite enduring an investigation by the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate. Cr Paul Giuliano is awaiting an outcome to a charge levelled at him by the inspectorate that he breached the Local Government Act by misusing his position during his term as mayor in 2009. Buckley ward’s Jan Chantry is the longestserving of current councillors and will be attempting a fourth term. Cr Chantry has spent 10 years in the job but says she is still enthusiastic and has ‘‘unfinished business’’. Former mayors Shirley Cornish and John Sipek also confirmed to the Weekly that they would nominate again, as did mayor Jim Cusack. Cr Cusack said he thought the council had made some good achievements during the

past two years that were ‘‘worth following through’’. Deputy mayor Miriam Gillis is also believed to be standing, while councillors Narelle Sharpe and Ange Kenos have confirmed their candidacy. Cr Kenos was investigated by the Municipal Association of Victoria’s councillor conduct panel last year over allegations he used letters and emails under the names Matthew Tillman and Matthew Blaine to support his own political agendas, promote his community standing and criticise fellow councillors. The investigation cleared him of any breaches of the council’s conduct code. Cr Kenos said if he was not successful, he would not stand again. He said he believed fellow councillors would use dummy candidates to draw preferences, but he would not be drawn on names. Nominations open this Thursday. Prospective candidates must lodge their form and nomination fee with the returning officer by noon on September 25.

Vision-impaired need a show of puppy love BY BENJAMIN MILLAR THEY may have only just met, but Petar and Nemo have the makings of a long and fruitful friendship. Sydneysider Petar Nakov arrived in Kensington earlier this month to meet Nemo, his new guide dog. The pair began a series of excursions with Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA) trainee instructor Anna Gigliotti-Skret, taking in Highpoint shopping centre and the local shops of Kensington. Nemo’s help means riding escalators, crossing the road or negotiating footpaths cluttered with signs, furniture and other obstacles will become much easier for vision-impaired Petar. Ms Gigliotti-Skret says training takes about four weeks, including time spent in SEDA’s Kensington home and a visit to Petar’s own home to get Nemo settled in and finish off his training in Petar’s neighbourhood. “Nemo has all the basic skills, but when we make a match we visit the home to see what kind of environment the dog is going to be working

with,” she said. “We’ll be teaching Nemo the routes that Petar usually uses.” It takes SEDA two years and about $30,000 to train a guide dog. The organisation matches about 60 guide dogs and blind or vision-impaired Australians every year. SEDA would love to expand but is struggling to find enough supporters willing to look after the puppies in the first year of their lives. Ms Gigliotti-Skret says the puppy caring program involves volunteers caring for a puppy from the age of eight weeks until about 12 months of age. “At the moment we are trying to expand the program, but we’re finding we just don’t have enough puppy carers.” SEDA is also on the look-out for temporary carers.

To become a Puppy Carer or learn more call SEDA on 1800 037 773.

This year, the Essendon Primary School pupil will enter another photo, this time from a recent holiday — a painting of Japanese blossoms and a floral felt creation. It’s quite a workload. ‘‘If I get a prize, that’s great; if not, that’s OK — it’s still fun,’’ says Katherine. ‘‘The felting started because I was at a friend’s place and her mum showed me a book about it. ‘‘It was really fun and I thought I could do it. ‘‘With the photography, I really like all the effects you can get from a camera. If any of my friends are going to the show I tell them to look at the photography section.’’

• Whether it is craft, equestrian, dairy cattle or wood chop competitions, the Royal Melbourne Show sees hundreds of people preparing for many hours to bring out their best.

After the state titles, horizon widens BY ROBERT FEDELE ESSENDON Keilor College football stars Matthew Stillman and Bruno Laguda are still on a high after representing Victoria at the under-15 schoolboys championships in Adelaide in late July. The schoolmates were part of the winning Vic Metro team which toppled Vic Country in the grand final, following a spirited nine-day national carnival. Stillman, 15, plays for EDFL junior club Greenvale, while Laguda, 15, pulls on the boots for Doutta Stars. Both are part of junior development squads at the Calder Cannons. The duo made the schoolboys team after an initial squad of 100 was culled to 25. ‘‘It was a pretty great feeling,’’ Stillman recalls. ‘‘We were rapt, overwhelmed. All the hard work paid off.’’ Laguda agreed: ‘‘It was an exciting feeling for me and my family after all the practice matches.’’ Essendon Keilor College offers football as part

of its curriculum and is regarded as a breeding ground for prodigious talent. Stillman is in year 10 and Laguda in year 9. Both boys are footy mad and glad to be at a school with such an emphasis on nurturing football talent. Stillman described the carnival as a positive, learning experience. ‘‘It was probably the best week of my life. Everyone bonded well and the coaches were great.’’ Laguda models himself on idol Gary Ablett, while Stillman looks up to Chris Judd jnr. The young stars hope to progress through Calder Cannons squads then, hopefully, be drafted into the AFL. For now, both boys seem hell-bent on making their dream come true. The question of a life without football is taken on board but swatted away just as quickly. ‘‘You do think outside the box,’’ Stillman admits. ‘‘What else is there to do? But with the school footy program, it helps heaps. You get all your training done for school and you’ve got elite coaches.’’

In grips of finals fever It’s spring time in Melbourne and footy finals fever has sprung into action. While the football season is finished for most juniors, school pupils across Moonee Valley have been busy honing their skills thanks to the ‘On The Mark’ program. The introductory grassroots football clinic has been run for the past four weeks at six primary school including Strathmore Primary School where Lewis, Madison, Matthew and Luca (pictured) received a surprise visit from Skeeter, the Essendon Football Club’s mascot. Organiser Toni Pavlovic said the clinics, which are supported by AFL Victoria and run by Essendon Doutta Stars Football Club, were being run at each school straight after class to increase accessibility and participation among pupils.

BY ROBERT FEDELE RTIST Jodie Goldring likes turning old into new. Her latest exhibition at the Incinerator Gallery, Dining with Cordyceps, uses furniture to make a comment on today’s society and its lack of concern about the waste produced by excessive consumption. Ms Goldring sourced wooden 1930s furniture from auctions, then drilled holes in it to make it ‘non-functional’. The most important element is a cluster of cordyceps — normally a form of fungus but, in this case, objects hand-made from waste and recycled materials. Ms Goldring says that, using timeconsuming processes, the cordyceps were created by stitching, coiling and/or twining old plastic bags. These are then ‘‘corded into an alluring fibre and set-up to suggest that they are devouring the furniture’’. Ms Goldring took two years to complete the project, with the help of basket-makers Sue Dilley and Barbara Hawkins.

She says she’s using waste to highlight waste. ‘‘It’s just in contrast to how we operate today. In our homes there’s so much waste,’’ Ms Goldring explains. So labour-intensive was the project that she called on the help of basket-makers Dilley and Hawkins to lend a hand. ‘‘I haven’t done that really much before. As an artist you’re generating all the ideas yourself and sometimes it gets a bit difficult to self-motivate.’’ Asked what she hoped people would get out of the show, Ms Goldring said it was two-fold. ‘‘People enjoy going to see something new and innovative, but I’m hoping people are challenged as well.’’ She hopes to continue working with furniture, but is unsure whether she’ll tackle another intensive project so soon. ‘‘Because it takes so much energy to do a project this size, I think I’ll need a break.’’

ndres Ruiz Mesa, owner and chef of Arcadia Gastronomique in Ascot Vale, was born in the Canary Islands and although an Aussie by adoption, remains committed to the principles of traditional Spanish cuisine. His openness to new flavour mergers and techniques is a quality that gives his food a dash of extra flair. ‘‘Spain is steeped in tradition and centuries-old customs and has taken its food culture to places it has historically colonised around the world,’’ Andres explains. ‘‘In my restaurant I aim to bring a slice of Spain to customers. I love hearing them say ‘Ole! This is just like Spain’. It means that my food, with its flavours, textures and aromas, has given people a sensual experience they will remember.’’ Arcadia has established itself as a pioneer of Spanish food on this side of town, an influential proponent of fresh local produce combined with top-quality products imported from Spain. The restaurant has been recognised for its delivery of top nosh by being included in the prestigious The Age Good Food Guide 2012 for the third consecutive entry. Not only is the food a celebration of Spain, the restaurant has an atmosphere that transports guests to the land of flamenco dancers and bullfights. Candles light up the tables and Spanish music plays in the background as the front-of-house team, natives of Spain, skilfully led by Andres’ wife Ruth weave a welcoming spell.

A

‘‘By all means, practise speaking Spanish with us,’’ says Andres. Due to the high level of demand for Arcadia’s wonderful food, the restaurant now provides a Spanish chef to cook for guests in private homes where they can enjoy tapas selections, paella and desserts such as churros (Spanish doughnuts with chocolate). Or dishes can be collected from the restaurant to serve at private parties. Beginning this month, Arcadia will open for lunch on Sundays, with an expanded menu and an exciting wine list.

There will be a sausage sizzle from 4pm, Pete the Pig and VSK Piggy trailers from 5pm, raffle from 6pm, a pink pyjama party, comedian Pommy Johnson from 8pm and live entertainment by Astro Boys from 9.30pm. ‘‘All money raised from these special events will go to the charity,’’ venue manager Michael Sanelli says. ‘‘And diners can purchase any kids’ meal in September for $10 and we will donate $2 to the annual Piggy Bank Appeal for Very Special Kids.’’ Diners can choose from a range of dishes for lunch or dinner courtesy of head chef Rajat Bhargava who has more than 15 years’ industry experience, including five in India.

Best of the best This 45-square gem has every conceivable mod-con for the ultimate in 21st century living

ROSS McGRAVIE PROPERTY WRITER

life of luxury awaits the lucky buyer of this executive tri-level townhouse opposite Clarinda Park in Essendon. Designed to please for the most discerning family, the 45-square gem with Alucobond exterior has every conceivable mod-con for the ultimate in 21st century living. Exemplifying space, opulence and exclusivity, the stylish interior is instantly appealing with its polished Victorian ash parquetry floors, high ceilings and clean finishes. The long entry hall accesses the double garage, which has a painted concrete floor and remote-controlled door, a glasswalled office that is wired as a home theatre, porcelain-tiled bathroom with walk-in shower and frameless glass screen, toilet with soft-closing seat, and Diana Reale marble-topped vanity. It is next to the Easyliving five-passenger, hydraulic lift with stainless-steel doors, granite floor and mirror and timber wall panelling. An open-tread timber staircase with glass balustrade ascends to the middle level. Highlighted by the full-width balcony that overlooks the park, the level includes polished river gum flooring, lounge and dining room with flatscreen Samsung ‘smart’ TV, remote-controlled Regency gas log fireplace and a reversecycle airconditioner, powder room with natural river rock basin, laundry and the showpiece kitchen and meals area. The chic kitchen, with a highlight window, will impress. Equipped with Ilve stainless-steel appliances (900mm stainless-steel oven with six-burner gas cooktop, canopy range hood, coffee machine, microwave oven), Royal Beige glass splashback, butler’s pantry with excellent bench and storage, wine rack, Diana Reale marble-topped island bench and breakfast bar with integrated Ilve dishwasher and waterfall edge, Vacpan and a servery.

VENDOR'SVIEW ●

Understated beauty Suburb and size make for a perfect fit, writes Ross McGravie t was size that attracted Josie Robson to her Flemington home 15 years ago as she tried to cater for her growing family. Living around the corner and wishing to remain in the area, Josie laid eyes on the potential-filled Victorian residence that would make the most of the city skyline views. “The property itself was in need of major repair, but the potential was incredible,” Josie says. “We wanted to keep the original building at the front, but make a more spacious living and entertaining area at the back. “The upstairs-downstairs is quite unique for this type of house in this area. We love that we have city views to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks, and also the quietness of our downstairs garden.” Cleverly renovated and extended over the years, the freestanding residence has three bedrooms (downstairs bedroom with bathroom), upper-level living and dining domain with polished floorboards, kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, elevated deck, downstairs living zone or teen retreat with

polished concrete floors. The latter opens to a landscaped courtyard. Ducted heating, reversecycle airconditioning and off-street parking from Shields Street and rear right-of-way are other extras. But now that the improvements have been completed and no further work is necessary, Josie said the renowned lifestyle was ready to be enjoyed. “The community of Flemington is like no other. Whether you have been here forever or are new, everyone is so welcoming and happy. There’s lots of smiling faces in Flemington. I think it’s because everyone feels so lucky to live here. “The ease of getting into the city whether by car, tram or train was a major consideration. We are 4km from the city, with all these forms of transport at our doorstep. We also have great bike tracks and lakes and are close to major facilities, such as Royal Park, the Melbourne Zoo, showgrounds and, of course, the Flemington Racecourse. Josie says she will leave the area with many happy memories. “As I have been in the area for nearly all my life, we have decided to have a change of scenery and move to the beautiful Macedon Ranges. I watched it blossom in the last 15 years and feel such a connection to the buildings, gorgeous little parks and the people.”

Classifieds 13 24 25

Much hardship and difficulty is caused to job-seekers by misleading advertising placed in employment columns. Our Professional Employment and Situations Vacant columns are reserved for advertisements which carry a SPECIFIC and GENUINE offer of employment. 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.

Civic hybrid is clean and green Ewan Kennedy road tests Honda’s petrol-electric winner onda brought the first mass-produced hybrid to Australia early in 2001. The Honda Insight was something out of the ordinary, not only in its petrol-electric powertrain but also in its radical styling. Hindsight says Insight didn’t make a lot of sense in our somewhat conservative market and sales were slow. Its $50,000 price tag didn’t help either. You could get into a mid-range Honda Civic for less than half of that. Honda quickly learned its lesson so from 2004 began to import Civic hybrids rather than Insights. These have been moderately successful in the sales race over the years. With the new-model Civic hybrid for 2012, Honda is making a strong sales and marketing push. It gave several motoring journalists the opportunity to live with a Civic hybrid for six months. We are halfway through that period and are thoroughly enjoying the experience. Major changes have been made to the electric motor and it’s now powered by a lithium-ion battery in place of the nickel-metal-hydride of the

H

previous model. This gives the Civic hybrid added torque off the line and it has plenty of performance for day-to-day driving. Having covered almost 2000 kilometres to date, we have found the Honda Civic hybrid using fuel in the range of 5.6 to 6.2 litres per hundred kilometres in commuter driving in town. This can be pulled down to the high fours on motorways. A mixture of city and country driving usually had the fuel meter sitting in the low to mid fives. Owners of turbo-diesel cars will point out that they can achieve similarly low fuel figures. However, diesels put out significantly more CO2 than petrol-hybrids. The Honda Civic hybrid is rated at 104 grams per kilometre in the Green Vehicle Guide, whereas diesel cars of this size typically push out 150 to 160 grams — a huge difference. The Civic hybrid loses a little boot space to house its battery. Prices start at $35,990, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

If the driver doesn’t take a break within the next 15 minutes, the warning is repeated. The Touareg V6 TDI 4Motion body now has the same exterior design as the other variants, incorporating the body-coloured lower side and bumper trims with chrome mouldings as well as dual chromed triangular exhaust tips on either side. The previous styling of grey and silver-coloured lower body side and bumper trims as well as oval chromed exhaust tailpipes is now being offered as an option at no charge for customers intending to put the Touareg’s offroad credentials to the test. Entry-level Touareg 150TDI now has a standard rear-view camera that improves reversing safety by displaying static and dynamic guidance lines on the display.

New Jeep is just grand Overhauled Cherokee is a winner, writes Ewan Kennedy he latest Jeep Grand Cherokee’s lines are smooth and athletic and of course there’s a seven-bar chrome vertical grille announcing the Jeep DNA. Last year the Grand Cherokee was given an overhaul for the 2012 season. It had a below-par interior and a 3.8-litre petrol V6 that guzzled fuel. Now, the interior sets a new standard for this, Jeep’s flagship. The dash sets the tone with

stitched leather and the way it seems to naturally interact with the door trim to create a great cabin effect. The seats are supportive, maybe a little too firm, and have a lumbar adjustment. The rear seats are also firm but comfortable. Being leather they will wear in. Storage areas abound and the rear seat passengers now have improved legroom. There’s a fold-down centre armrest when two occupy the second row. Head and shoulder room is good. The 2012 model also has a new design 3.6-litre V6 engine. While it is an improvement in both performance and economy, it is still no fuel saint. Changes to the Grand Cherokee are small but important: the doors open wider and the passengers have more knee and leg room. Cargo space is up by 11 per cent to 782 litres with the seats up and 1554 with the rear seat folded. There’s not a lot of difference between the 3.6-litre petrol V6 and the V8. Where it does matter is in towing where the V8 will haul up to 3500 kg while the V6 is just 2268 kg. Despite the classy makeover, the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is still true to its roots as a

The ability to substantially lift the body means in most situations off-road the Grand Cherokee will remain grand without the underbody bumps and hits a 4WD might normally accumulate. However, we suspect most Grand Cherokees will rarely see the dirt and rocks and will be used as urban vehicles that double up as a tow vehicle, given the 3.5-tonne capability.

On road the Grand Cherokee is a refined piece of kit that offers a ride as good as any SUV and handles particularly well for a vehicle that tips the scales at almost 2.5 tonnes (with passengers) and is capable of tackling the most serious of offroad terrain. Jeep has done well to balance out the crossover without compromise. Prices start at $45,000, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

Second player charged after final melee BY TEO PELLIZZERI THE fallout from a last-quarter brawl in the Essendon District Football League division 1 grand final is expected to continue this week with another tribunal charge. The Weekly understands that the league’s investigating officer has returned with a striking charge for a West Coburg player. It will not come with a set penalty and must be heard at the tribunal. The additional charge comes a week after Burgers player Abdikane Fitaax pleaded guilty at

the tribunal to one count each of striking and kicking. He was suspended last Tuesday for a combined 11 weeks. Fitaax received four weeks for the strike and seven for the kick, both directed at Airport West player Billy Iles. The Weekly understands that Fitaax believed he was subject to a racial slur before his violent outburst and this claim was tabled at the tribunal. But no Airport West player has been accused of making such a slur. The Weekly also understands Iles attended the

tribunal and denied making any racial slur. The EDFL confirmed last week that Iles was not being investigated. West Coburg has confirmed it will not be making an official complaint via AFL Victoria guidelines for instances of racial vilification. Speculation and accusation has been rife in social media, be it on the bigfooty.com.au forums, on Facebook or on Twitter about what motivated the violence and the actions of those in the brawl. EDFL general manager Marc Turri said the tribunal, independent of league administration,

had ruled on the evidence presented by those in attendance. ‘‘A lot of people are making suggestions and statements, and that started as soon as the game finished on what transpired. It’s come to light that not all the suggestions made are actually correct and that was pretty much determined at the tribunal. ‘‘Ultimately it was a very serious incident, the whole melee was very serious, and is not something that can be condoned. ‘‘But at the same time rumour and innuendo can blow something out of proportion.’’

PEGS missing on year’s biggest day PEGS’ Cecilia Nguyen puts her arm in the way of a Dandenong strike at the State Hockey Centre on Saturday. But it was pain for PEGS as Greater Dandenong Warriors claimed the women’s state league 4 grand final 3-0. PEGS had won two out of the three meetings with the Warriors during the home-and-away season but could not find the net on Saturday morning. Greater Dandenong’s Jade Morrison, Jessica Phillips and Katherine Barber were the goalscorers. Go to mooneevalleyweekly.com.au for more of Ari Hatzis’s action shots from the grand final

Sydenham stands in way of Avondale Heights’ title bid BY TEO PELLIZZERI AVONDALE Heights’ attempts to win the title will go down to the final day in FFV league action but Essendon United’s promotion hopes may not after mixed results for Moonee Valleybased clubs on Saturday. The Heights beat North Sunshine Eagles 2-0 in state league 3 north-west on Saturday via goals from Shaun Ticehurst and Frank Bazzano. However, title rival Sydenham Park were also winners, beating Hume United 2-1 to maintain a two-point

gap at the top of the league. If Avondale Heights wins away at Melbourne University this weekend, Sydenham Park must win its match at home against Yarraville to claim the title. Sydenham has 53 points to Avondale’s 51 but the Heights’ goal difference is six better. The bad news for Avondale Heights is Yarraville reached safety from relegation at the weekend and is no longer playing in a do-or-die situation against Sydenham Park. In provisional 1 north-west, Essendon United drew 1-1 with Corio at the

weekend and needs a series of unlikely results to finish second. Fixture backlog has crippled United’s season with catch-up games coming in a flurry at the end of the campaign. United has 34 points from 20 played, while second-placed Moreland United has 39 points from 21 played. Should Essendon United beat Northern Falcons at the State Football Centre tomorrow night it will still go into the final day of the season a mathematical chance of top two. But United would need to beat Lalor

United, already relegated Maribyrnong Greens would have to defeat Moreland United and mid-table Surf Coast would have to beat Corio. In provisional 2 north-west, Essendon Royals sealed safety in the division for another year after a 1-1 draw with Northern Roosters. Relegation rival Laverton Park already needed a string of favourable results to catch the Royals and was mathematically relegated with its 1-1 draw against Bell Park. The Royals are 10th with 22 points from 20 played while Laverton Park in

11th is on 16 from 21 played. The Royals play a catch-up game against Plenty Valley Lions tonight at the State Football Centre and finish the season away at Western Eagles on Saturday. In provisional 3 north-west, Denny Pincic scored the decisive goal in a 1-0 win against Bundoora United. While Tornado (fifth, 29 points) cannot be promoted, the result dealt a hammer blow to Bundoora’s promotion chances. Tornado played a catchup game against Brimbank Stallions last night and finish the season against Watsonia Heights on Saturday.

Quick take-off gives Jets edge Greenvale led at every break to down Strathmore by 20 points in the premier division reserves grand final on Saturday. The Mores kicked just a goal in each of the opening two quarters as the Jets built a 20-point lead at half-time, going on to win 9.11 (65) to 7.3 (45). Greenvale goalkickers were Tallan Wright and Andrew Bouzikas with two each and singles for Bruno Provenzano, David Sardo, Ricky Fandrich and Chris Farchione. Neither team provided best players and Strathmore did not provide its goalkickers before the Weekly went to print.

Agony over missing out ultimate reward ‘‘That’s the way it rolls. We’ll have another crack next year. ‘‘Everyone is devastated – coaching group, the supporters, the players who put a lot on the line for the whole game. And to walk away with nothing is very frustrating.’’ Jones walked around in disbelief after the siren while his 17 teammates on the field all collapsed. Many didn’t move for a number of minutes.

BY TEO PELLIZZERI LAST year Strathmore coach Digby Morrell worked the bench for what little time he had spare players to get out of the grand final with a two-point win against Oak Park. Like last year, the opposition would hit the front against Strathmore midway through the final quarter only for the Mores to respond. Last year, Strathmore was able to lock down the ball between the halfforward lines for the last eight minutes of the grand final and prevent any more scoring. This year had a sting in the tail. The Mores won 21 straight between last year’s qualifying final and this year’s grand final. To go an entire campaign without losing only to go down by two points in the decider will be hard for the Mores to come to terms with. The Mores looked like winners for much of the third quarter as Greenvale was held goalless for 30 minutes and Jordan Doering got on top of his Greenvale match-up Daniel Campisano to boot three goals. ‘‘We had a chance to consolidate and didn’t take the opportunity,’’ Morrell said. ‘‘To Greenvale’s credit they came back and pushed the game all the way. ‘‘Matt Smith’s was obviously a fantastic kick under pressure later on. ‘‘We went forward a couple of times in the last 48 seconds to have a crack and I’m proud of the way the boys went about it. ‘‘They never gave up.

‘Obviously it’s a devastating loss after a great year, a year we controlled really well.’ - Digby Morrell

Game changer: Strathmore’s Jordan Doering, tackled by Greenvale’s Samuel Zumbo, booted three goals in the third term. Pictures: Darren Howe

‘‘Obviously it’s a devastating loss after a great year, a year we controlled really well.’’ The final siren was met with celebration and confusion on the sidelines as the benches of both teams tried to work out if Daniel Jones’ mark had in

fact beaten the bell, or been paid by the umpire. ‘‘You accept what the umpire had to say. Whether it’s right or wrong is irrelevant really. The umpire makes his decision and we stick by that. ‘‘We had our chance to extend the

game and we didn’t do that. When you’re starting to control the game you should finish the game. ‘‘Greenvale were always going to come at us. We probably had a few players down today but on the whole I thought the boys’ effort was fantastic.

‘‘We had some outstanding performances. Nathan Lyons was fantastic on wing and half-back. I thought he was probably a bit stiff not to get the medal. ‘‘Obviously Matt Knight did really well, Glenn Carrick was serviceable, Adam Iacobucci was fantastic, but we just had too many guys not play their role today and that probably cost us the win.’’ Strathmore suffered a double-defeat on grand final day with its reserves also losing to Greenvale. ‘‘We’ll go back to the club, have a few beers, enjoy what was a very successful season. To have two teams in the grand final is a great effort. ‘‘Hopefully both groups grow from what happened today and we come back better and stronger next year.’’

Changes make a difference as Jets soar Take away: Greenvale’s Cameron Wight (3) and Jaryd Thompson (left) strip Strathmore’s Marcus Stapleton of the ball while (below) Greenvale captain James Rohan and coach Anthony Rock hoist the premiership cup. Pictures: Darren Howe

BY TEO PELLIZZERI ANTHONY Rock’s decision to make three changes to the Greenvale team that won the preliminary final proved a successful one when the grand final was up for grabs. The Greenvale coach may have won the ultimate prize, an AFL premiership with North Melbourne in 1996, but said there was huge satisfaction in his first premiership as a coach. Greenvale brought in Anthony Aloi, Nick Raines and injury-plagued former Melbourne and Carlton player Chris Johnson for Tallan Wright, Chris Farchione and Ricky Fandrich. Johnson found open space to use the ball in the final quarter and was a driving force in Greenvale’s comeback from 17 points down at threequarter-time. ‘‘There was always a risk and we took it,’’ Rock said. ‘‘He’s missed a lot of football but I believe in the bloke. ‘‘I brought him to the club because I’ve had an involvement with him at Melbourne. ‘‘He can play, he’s had soft tissue injuries and hasn’t been able to get his body right.’’ Rock said he always expected the game to be close after playing Greenvale back-to-back in round 18 (38-point loss) and the qualifying final (nine points). ‘‘It was a real arm-wrestle in the first half and to Strathmore’s credit they broke the game open in the third quarter. ‘‘But I always felt, obviously losing Chris Burns really early in the piece hurt us, I just felt at three-quarter-time even though they got ahead of us there’s been a lot of spirit and I was really confident in our fitness base. ‘‘We just needed to take the game on a bit more than we did in the third quarter. Fortunately a few things fell our way and our more experienced players started to get hold of the footy and we drove it inside 50m.

‘‘For Matty Smith to seal the grand final like that, he’s been such a wonderful consistent player, he always loves sneaking forward and getting a goal. ‘‘You can’t write a better script. The two best teams competed in the grand final. ‘‘Even though they’ve beaten us three times we haven’t had our mix right. It even goes back to the preliminary final last year when they beat us by eight points. ‘‘It’s been the pattern of play that we’ve got the fitness base. The semi we played them in we were

coming home strong and kicked 2.6 in the last quarter, hit the post three times. If we brought our aggressive mindset and had our workrate and with some of our strong body inclusions I thought it could give us an edge. ‘‘I want to pay respect to Strathmore, they were going for back-to-back. They’re a great opponent and we just won on the day and we’re fortunate that we’re in that position. Rock coached TAC Cup and at three AFL clubs as an assistant before joining Greenvale for the 2011 season.

‘‘I’ve been fortunate enough in my life to grow up on football. Played in EDFL grand finals, an AFL premiership, but I’ve never coached one. ‘‘For me this is the pinnacle in my coaching career. I’ve been coaching for 10-odd years as an assistant but nothing is as good as coaching your own side. ‘‘This is up there with 1996. People might look at this and laugh but to actually coach a group of individuals and try to bring them together, it’s the most rewarding thing you could ever be a part of. I just love football, it doesn’t matter what level.’’

Cup of joy as gritty Jets outrun Mores BY TEO PELLIZZERI GREENVALE’S Matt Smith kicked a last-minute goal to win the Essendon District Football League premier division grand final by two points against previously unbeaten Strathmore on Saturday. The Mores had one last thrust inside forward 50m but were denied by the siren to lose 12.10 (82) to 11.14 (80) in front of a packed Windy Hill. The win gives Greenvale its third premier division premiership, fourth premiership in club history, and first since 2007. Daniel Jones, who had kicked a go-ahead goal for the Mores earlier in the final term, appeared to mark barely half a second after the final siren. But even if Jones’ mark had beaten the siren he would have been denied a shot on goal because the umpire ruled he had pushed Greenvale defender Simon Potter in the back. The game-ending contest was 35m out near the boundary at the eastern end of the ground, in almost the exact spot Strathmore’s Michael O’Brien had kicked the match-winning goal against Oak Park a year earlier. But it was Greenvale celebrating this time, doing to Strathmore what Keilor had done to the Jets in 2008 when the team unbeaten all year lost in the decider. Smith’s match-winning goal was 45m out in front after marking a pass across the face from Chris Spinella. Best-on-ground medallist Rowan Nayna was vital in the build-up after marking midfield and outrunning Ash Arrowsmith. Strathmore led by as many as 24 points after controlling the third quarter, pegged back to 17 at the final change. Greenvale had kicked goals within the opening minute of the second and third quarters and did so again when Rhys Bloomfield marked on the goal line seconds into the last. Joe Gazzo’s third of the game closed Strathmore’s lead to four points but Matt Knight’s fourth goal of the day 11 minutes into the term extended the gap back out to 10. Jacob Thompson, goalless through the first three quarters, then stepped up with two in a row to put Greenvale in front. The first came after he marked a high ball from Ben Clifton hard up against the boundary and converted from 35m out. The second came from a set shot 20m out on a slight angle after a brilliant one-handed grab to outmark Richard Little who had shaded him for most of the afternoon. Jones put Strathmore into a five-point lead 23 minutes into the quarter after his mark and goal 40m out in front sailed through post high. But Matt Smith would leave his post in the backline to create the extra number up forward on 28 minutes, marking uncontested and delivering the match-winning goal. Nayna won 14 clearances for the match and six in the last quarter. Jordan Doering had threatened to win the match for Strathmore as he kicked three goals in a third-quarter purple patch and a goal assist in the last.

Pushing forward pays off BY TEO PELLIZZERI

IT was the big decision and pressure kick that Matt Smith will never forget. The tall defender pushed forward as the extra man to mark uncontested with a minute remaining and kick truly from 45m to put Greenvale in front with the match-winning goal. Smith, 29, won his first premiership in 20 years of playing football. ‘‘It was a very special moment. I’m very thankful Spinella kicked it to me,’’ he said. ‘‘Not much went through my head. I just thought I’ve got to kick the goal because not much time was left . . . very lucky, very lucky. ‘‘I’d been deep all day on (Tim) Harvey and he’s a very dangerous player. Of course we’re down and got nothing to lose by pushing forward. ‘‘I do like to push forward and I’m just lucky it came off, because the majority of times it doesn’t and if there was a turnover, I know Harvey was back inside 50 and it would have gone the other way. You’ve got to take risks in footy. ‘‘The wind was going across so I aimed for the left-hand goal post and it came off. ‘‘I knew there was only a few minutes left but there’s no clock so it was pretty hard. I had no idea how much time was left.’’ Smith headed to full-back from the resulting centre bounce and was on the last line of defence when Strathmore went inside forward 50m in the dying seconds. ‘‘Just play tight . . . play tight,’’

Collared: Strathmore’s Ben Bese tackles Greenvale’s Rhys Bloomfield high. Smith said of his thoughts during the play. ‘‘We’ve got a lot of respect for Strathmore. We were confident in our abilities today, we’re a very fit side. ‘‘Rocky (Anthony Rock) for the last month has said our strength is our

fitness and to play in the moment. ‘‘Thompson and Gazzo were really good for us up forward in that last quarter and turned the momentum our way. ‘‘This is a great footy club and the boys are very tight-knit.’’

After the game, Greenvale players tell how it unfolded SIMON POTTER ‘‘I didn’t know what stage of the game it was, how long we had to go. I just knew that I had to get the ball out of there and I put everything into it . . . just got the push in the back, it went our way. ‘‘I felt the push, I was on the ground and the next thing I know the siren’s gone and I’ve got Chris Johnson jumping on top of me going ‘you bloody beauty’ so it was just that moment then, was unbelievable. ‘‘Jones is a good mate of mine and a good footballer. He’s capable of doing anything. Obviously he slotted (the earlier chance in the last quarter) so the main job was to stop him kicking any more. ‘‘We’ve got a great bunch of blokes here at Greenvale, building on this team for two years.

We’ve been waiting a long time for this.’’ ROWAN NAYNA ‘‘To be honest I didn’t know we were up. I thought scores were level. I guess it’s not a bad thing because we played like we were still in it, played attacking and didn’t go completely defensive. ‘‘It just got to the point where you just will yourself to jump on the ball, see the ball, do anything you can to hold it in and if someone’s free give it off. ‘‘When they bought Iacobucci in the midfield we played one-on-one. (Anthony Rock) wants me to play a role and he’s been fantastic teaching me that it’s more than winning the football. Doing the right thing with it. ‘‘We believed we were fitter than them. If we just played the roles, executed and finish well

we’d be right there towards the death. It was never going to be a close game. I played in a premiership with Balwyn in 2008. That was a great win but this was probably the sweetest. ‘‘I was looking down at my feet, I was cooked. I dropped the mark which let the ball go back in (for Strathmore’s last attack) but luckily Pottsy got a free and they didn’t have the shot on goal.’’ JACOB THOMPSON ‘‘I was in the crowd when we lost in 2008 and 2009 . . . was fortunate enough to play in 2010 but gone done. I love the club and there was that drive to get it done. Fortunately I was able to get on the end of a couple. ‘‘(2010) went through my mind when the coach told me to go deep . . . you just make sure you work on your body positioning. It’s a little bit better than what it was as an 18-year-old and

you put yourself in a position to mark the ball. ‘‘I had to do something to contribute, the spot (first shot in the last quarter) was somewhere I practice from a bit at training with Bendigo . . . I was able to slot it which was good. It means a lot to win with my brother (Jaryd).’’ JOE GAZZO ‘‘We took our opportunities in the last quarter, it was just about capitalising in the last 30 minutes. From the whole list of 50-odd there were some guys who were stiff to miss out. But it’s been a whole team effort for the last nine months. ‘‘We know Matty Smith’s got a good boot on him. As a small forward you sit 15-20m out in case it falls short. It’s my first flag with the Jets apart from junior days . . . it really hasn’t sunk in just yet.’’
