South Morang artist John Duggan has a wealth of knowledge about his indigenous heritage and he honours his ancestors through his art. His passion and dedication for his ancestry have put him in the running to win one of the state’s top art awards with his installation piece, Tools of the Trade: Hunter. “It’s important to maintain tradition,” he says. “I would hate to think that we would lose the techniques and knowledge that people have been practising for over 50,000 years.” ■ INSIDE STORY, PAGE 13

ride2work day

Lead by example. This simple health message has put the mayors of Whittlesea and Hume on their bikes ready for next Wednesday’s national Ride2Work day. As part of its healthy travel drive, Whittlesea will also host this year’s Mayors on Bikes event, a challenge that has so far inspired 24 riders from neighbouring councils and from as far afield as Ballarat. Whittlesea mayor Rex Griffin said the ride would be a chance to showcase the work his council had already done to put pedal power in the driver’s seat of integrated transport. “Council needs to ensure our growing communities have access to the things most other communities in Melbourne’s inner suburbs take for granted,” he said. Experts say more than half of Australians don’t get enough physical activity to maintain their health. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare recommends 30 minutes of moderate activity for adults on most days (up to 60 minutes for children) to stay healthy. \ HELEN GRIMAUX

The $13.23 million redevelopment of Broadmeadows Leisure Centre has hit a hurdle with its key builder in financial strife. Melbourne-based Walton Construction Pty Ltd was placed in administration last Thursday after suffering heavy losses in its building operations. Lawler Draper Dillon has been appointed administrator. Walton was in charge of the construction of a 50-metre indoor pool and a new main entrance to the leisure centre from Tanderrum Way.

growth areas gain in childhood support DISABILITY SERVICES

The state government has recognised the need for early childhood intervention support in Melbourne’s growth corridors, with a bulk of new places dedicated for the north and north-western suburbs. Visiting the Education Program for Infants and Children (EPIC) in Bundoora last week, children and Early Childhood Development Minister Wendy Lovell announced the delivery of 500 new early intervention places across 20 community organisations. Early childhood intervention services provide families of children with disabilities or developmental-delays support in the pre-school years. Carers in early childhood intervention

work in homes and kindergartens to ensure children develop learning skills. The latest announcement follows 500 places allocated in March. There will be 132 places allocated to providers that service fringe suburbs in Melbourne’s north and north-west. EPIC will get 20 of them. EPIC chief executive Nicole Mahar said the boost would be a great help to families in Whittlesea, Darebin and Banyule. Ms Lovell said early childhood intervention built the capacity of parents and family members to respond to children’s needs. Lauren Matthews, executive officer of Early Childhood Intervention Australia’s Victorian chapter, said there was a constant demand on early childhood intervention services.

She said the Victorian model was a “key influencer” in the development of intervention services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. “Victorian early childhood intervention policy and the service providers who implement it are seen as the national leaders of best practice,” she said. Colleen Argent’s four-year-old daughter, Ella, has used the EPIC early childhood intervention services for almost two years, after a year on the waiting list. Ms Argent, of Epping, said it was important the services be local. “It needs to be convenient,” she said. “Ella’s carer is only a short drive from her kindergarten and our home.” \ BRIDGET FITZGERALD

melbourne cup charity

Racing season brings Melbourne foodies and fashionistas trackside, but for those on the other side of the tracks such luxury is rare. Community food program SecondBite wants Melbourne punters to give a sporting chance to neighbours struggling to put food on their plates, with the group chosen as this year’s charity partner by the Victoria Racing Club for its 153rd Melbourne Cup Carnival. The money from the sale of the 2013 Pin & Win commemorative pins, including a diamonte version, will go towards the program’s target of raising $250,000 to deliver an extra 625,000 healthy meals to people who would otherwise go hungry. SecondBite started in 2005 in Kensington with volunteers distributing food products that were otherwise going to be dumped. Mickleham volunteer Lisa Ali can usually be found at Preston market at 3pm on any given Saturday. That’s the closing and clean-up time for marketeers and prime time for SecondBite to move in and help sort leftovers. Ms Ali will be among a squad

Artists join together in harmony

Brawl shows law is right, says MP Northern metropolitan MP Craig Ondarchie believes the state government’s new anti-fortification laws have been vindicated following a recent spate of bikie violence across Melbourne. The laws, which came into effect on Sunday, allow police to tear down “fortress-like” protection around motorcycle gang club houses. Mr Ondarchie said a brawl at a South Morang shopping centre on September 22 demonstrated the importance of the crackdown as the state couldn’t stand idly by and watch outlaw motorcycle clubs “terrorise suburban Victoria”. Police say five men attacked two others at the Groove Train cafe at Westfield Plaza. They say it turned into a brawl, with both parties using chairs and bottles. A Lalor man, 35, sustained facial injuries in the incident, which was seen by about 100 people, including children. An Epping man was charged with affray and behaving in a riotous manner. And on September 30, a Hallam gym and a Dandenong tattoo parlour were shot at with what police identified as “high-powered military weapons”. Both are reportedly owned by the Comanchero motorcycle club. Six of eight men arrested in police raids on Tuesday appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday on assault, weapons and drug charges. Comancheros Gemino Aloia, 26, of Glenroy, Bemir Saracevic, 26, Emir Jaha, 27, and Gladstone Park’s Mark Balsillie, 29, were all remanded to appear again on December 19. Hell’s Angel Dennis Basic was remanded to a committal hearing on December 20, while Mohammed Khodr, also aligned with the Hell’s Angels, was bailed to reappear on October 15. \ BRIDGET FITZGERALD and THE AGE

CRACKDOWN ON BIKIES

Whittlesea’s Harmony Art exhibition, open until October 18 in the council’s Great Hall, features works by more than 100 local artists. On show are paintings, wood carvings, jewellery, drawings, sculpture, etchings, photographs, mosaics and textiles. “Artists were asked to respond to this year’s theme of harmony,” mayor Rex Griffin said. “Some have expressed life lived in harmony with family, nature, people from different cultural backgrounds or global harmony.” Japan-born Hiroku Wyatt (pictured), a member of Plenty Valley Arts, worked as an illustrator for Time magazine when she arrived in Australia 25 years ago. Her watercolour of two kookaburras joins works by Kinglake artist Gay Chatfield, who is rebuilding her life after the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. Gay has created two sculptural works titled Interwoven Nests and Natural Collections. \ HG » www.whittlesea.vic.gov.au or email cultural.collection@whittlesea.vic.gov.au

“With the state election coming in November next year, it is time both the state Liberal and Labor parties told us what year we can get on a train at Mernda. Currently, neither has a policy on this vital project.” The council has released a draft integrated transport strategy that identifies actions needed over the next five years. “We need greater investment into alternatives to car use, such as bike paths and train stations – both essential for mobility and particularly for young people,” Cr Griffin said. Forums on Whittlesea’s transport strategy start next week and the draft strategy is on the council’s Community Voice website. The first session is on October 18 from 10am to noon, with another on October 24, 5.30pm-7.30pm, at the council offices, 25 Ferres Boulevard, South Morang. \ HELEN GRIMAUX » RSVP: 9217 2005 by October 14.

MY SHOUT

WATERS MUDDIED IN HUME-SUNBURY POLL (Weekly, October 1) Kym Schubert and Raz Di Vito are some of the residents I’ve invited to discuss the accounting firm KPMG’s financial report and answer their concerns. A few have accepted, but as is the case with this minority group they want to make false statements but at the same time will not commit to a meeting to learn more. They [the ‘yes’ group for Sunbury’s secession from Hume council] say the plan has presented a one-sided story, but they themselves have shed no light on the “other story” they believe may exist. Mr Di Vito has stated no clear plan. But the “yes” group has a very clear plan. Vote yes and a panel then discusses the merits of the new shire going ahead. It’s sad that this minority group is making comment on issues that they clearly do not understand or do not want to understand. I urge Ms Schubert to make contact so we can

make the advantages of breaking away from Hume very clear to her. October 25 will represent one of the most important times in Sunbury’s history. The residents have the chance to have their own council once again. This new council will be a best-practice council and an efficient one providing the services that Sunbury needs. The scare campaign being run by a very small minority has provided no factual reasons to say why having our own council is a bad idea. In fact, they came to a public meeting called by the Sunbury Residents Association where people could freely ask questions. Not one of this small group asked a single question. Obviously they had no concerns in the end. Councillors Jack Ogilvie and Jack Medcraft both support the yes vote. Cr Ann Potter stated she was philosophically not opposed to a new council. Cr Ogilvie has been involved with Hume council for a long time, especially on financial matters. He clearly stated a new council can be

formed that will not lead to a rate rise for residents. To have a council made up of councillors who all live in the Sunbury area can only be a big positive for us all. TREVOR DANCE \ SUNBURY Sounds to me like the whole push is just for status by the “we don’t want to be associated with those Broadmeadows people”. There is still no solid evidence showing advantages for Sunbury if it breaks away from Hume council. PHIL \ ONLINE

Last week’s tragic sinking of a migrant boat off the Italian coast should be a wake-up call to Australians who think we’re the only ones dealing with asylum seekers and refugees. Southern European countries, such as Italy, Malta and Spain, deal with far more boat arrivals than we do yet they continue to treat it as a humanitarian issue. Italy alone had more than 7000 refugees arrive by boat in the first half of this year on top of thousands more entering by land from Eastern Europe and the Middle East. It causes social and economic issues and resentment from sections of Italian society, and while Italy sends home thousands of people found to be economic refugees, it has never entertained turning them back at sea when they’re at their most vulnerable. The Italian government recognises it’s dealing with desperate people, not just boats. \ DAVID BONNICI \ EDITOR

walkathon reflects a mum’s love Westmeadows

Westmeadows mother Amy Mathias had little knowledge of cystic fibrosis until her first-born, Oliver, was diagnosed with the condition. When he was just one month old, doctors told Ms Mathias, 25 (pictured with partner Matt Watt and Oliver), that her son would need life-long treatment. “He’s still the same Ollie,” she said. “But it’s the hardest thing

when you find out you have a sick little kid.” Now aged six months, Oliver requires daily physio treatment and has a team of doctors and consultants helping improve his quality of life. The diagnosis sparked Ms Mathias’s involvement with Cystic Fibrosis Victoria. She will take part in a Great Strides walkathon on October 27 for those hit by the condition. \ BF » www.everydayhero.com.au/event/ greatstridesmelb2013

alkallo farmer Hannah Marriott has won one of Australian agriculture’s most prestigious research awards for her use of electronic identification devices (EIDs) to assess growth rates of lambs and fertility of ewes. “As costs rise year on year, it’s important to be able to ensure we don’t use poor stock,” Ms Marriott says. Ms Marriott (pictured) is responsible for a 1080-hectare prime lamb property, one of three farms run by her family. She breeds from about 4500 ewes to grow lambs for domestic and export markets. She says the main aim of using the identification devices is to ensure they add value to her farming. “I believe EIDs could help manage

seasonal risk by ensuring excess sheep are on-sold for poor breeding performance rather than age,” she said. “They will ensure the increasing cost of inputs are used most efficiently.’’. Ms Marriott’s research has won her a $30,000 Nuffield scholarship, which supports projects that will benefit the Victorian community. She will travel overseas to research sheep breeding and selection programs in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Nuffield Australia has awarded a record 21 scholarships to Australians this year. The recipients will undertake a 16-week travel program and complete their studies next year. \ ANGELE SCICLUNA

poo power more than a pipe dream aurora

There’s more to poo than meets the eye … or the nose, for that matter. It’s the matter, in fact, that is adding grunt to the financial bottom line for Yarra Valley Water (YVW), set against what would otherwise be ongoing costs to provide recycled water services to Melbourne’s booming north. The water authority is in the detailed design phase of a new “waste to energy’’ plant next to its sewage treatment plant at Aurora, which already supplies class-A recycled water to homes in Craigieburn and Epping North. The new plant will convert the methane gas emitted by sewage sludge (known as biogas) and other organic matter otherwise destined for landfill, into electricity, reducing energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. On a site tour with YVW’s innovation and growth manager Andrew Edney and northern treatment plant operations manager Stephen Graham, it was explained to the Weekly that methane gas will be collected from a sealed “digestor” unit, significantly cutting emissions of this common greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. The project is expected to generate enough biogas to run both the electricity generation plant and sewage treatment plant next door.

Switched on: Andrew Edney and Stephen Graham at the new plant site. (HELEN GRIMAUX)

Depending on supply, the biogas may even generate income for the water authority by putting power back into the grid. YVW managing director Tony Kelly said Aurora was chosen because it was close to organic waste sources, being in the midst of the Plenty Valley Food Group’s manufacturing hub. It’s also near the Western Ring Road and there is a large buffer from

residential and commercial premises. “Instead of treating our sludge as waste, we’re treating it as a product with value,” he said. “The facility will help us ... reduce the quantity of nutrients being discharged into Port Phillip Bay while creating a sewage treatment plant that is energy self-sufficient.” Construction is due to start early next year.

heart health all in the mind: doctor Transcendental meditation is a potential non-drug treatment for heart disease, according to a visiting US physician and natural medicine researcher. Dr Robert Schneider is director of the Institute of Natural Medicine and Prevention at the Maharishi University of Management. He has spent the past 20 years researching non-drug approaches to the prevention and treatment of heart disease and will present some of his findings at a seminar at the RMIT Bundoora campus on October 14. Dr Schneider’s subjects will include the benefits of naturally lowering blood pressure to prevent heart disease. In December’s American Heart Association journal Circulation, he published findings showing a 48 per cent reduction in mortality in heart attack and stroke patients who used transcendental meditation for an average of five years. Dr Schneider’s pursuit of natural medicines was based on creating a “bigger armament, a bigger base of tools” to fight heart disease. \ BF » tm.org.au/pages/dr-schneider-tour

making his mark Traditional tools inspire indigenous artist John Duggan, writes BRIDGET FITZGERALD

he draws a lot of strength, and it’s a pivotal part of his working and personal life. Duggan’s artpiece can be seen at a free exhibition of finalists’ work at the Art Gallery of Ballarat from November 2 to December 8. The 2013 winner will be named on November 2.

outh Morang-based artist John Duggan is not a full-time practising artist. He’s a Museum Victoria employee and an archaeology student with a wealth of knowledge about his indigenous heritage. But the passion and dedication Duggan has for his ancestry has put him in the running to win one of the state’s top art awards. He’s been nominated for the 2013 Victorian Indigenous Art Awards for his installation piece, Tools of the trade: ‘Hunter’. “Most of the material in my work is based on tradition,” he says. “All of it has been crafted in a traditional way – pressure flaking and percussion flaking, binding and cementing with traditional resins and stringy bark.” Duggan says traditional methods leave distinct markers on the final product, and the practice is something that should be “acknowledged and encouraged” in indigenous and non-indigenous communities. Duggan honours his ancestors through his art. “It’s important to maintain tradition,” he says. “I would hate to think that we would lose the techniques and knowledge that people have been practising for over 50,000 years.” His mother was born and bred in Moree, New South Wales, and his father came from Waterfall in southern Sydney. But Duggan says it was the uncles on his mother’s side who taught him many things about his heritage. “I have a lot of uncles and some maintained aspects of traditional knowledge,” he says. Duggan has been with Museum Victoria for seven years, and five years ago he moved into his role as assistant collection manager for the Australian “it’s ethnographic collection, which encompasses important all Aboriginal collections. to keep these His interest in artefacts and collecting has traditions led to his studying archaeology at La Trobe University in Bundoora.

W

ith the weather warming up, those of us lucky enough to have a pool in the backyard are probably getting it ready for summer. While adding the pool cleaner and removing leaves is often high on the agenda, Kidsafe Victoria is reminding families about pool safety, specifically the need for adequate fencing. According to Kidsafe, drowning is one of the leading causes of death for Australian children aged under five, and pools are the most common location for drowning in this visit the age group, accounting for 38 per cent of drowning incidents. kidsafe webSadly, 21 Australian children aged up site to check to four drowned in 2011 and 2012. safety That’s something secure pool fencing can help prevent. Over time, with pool and spa fencing exposed to extreme weather and wear and tear, including rust, missing bolts or screws and other damage, it’s important for fencing to be checked and maintained. The Victorian government’s Closing the Gate on Backyard Pool Drowning campaign encourages pool and spa owners to visit the Kidsafe website and use the pool and spa checking tool, developed by Life Saving Victoria, to check the safety of pool and spa areas. \ rmiller@mmpgroup.com.au

Common faults and non-compliance issues include: Gates that don’t self-latch or self-close ■ Climbable objects near the pool or spa, including pot plants, chairs and pool pumps, that could enable a child to climb the fence ■ Excess space under the fence ■ Misuse, such as propping the pool gate open (supplied)

Motoring \ rod easdown gets behind the wheel

T

here can’t be many devices that are as technically advanced, or built to finer tolerances, than the diesel motors coming out of Europe. They are remarkable. The key to smooth running is breaking the fuel into the smallest droplets possible, and it’s done by increasing the injection pressure at the cylinder. Fuel enters the cylinders of modern European diesels at 2050 Bar. How much is that? Were you to balance a Land Cruiser on a single stiletto heel, you’d be about there. And they’re made to run more quietly by a pilot burn, injecting a tiny amount of fuel – about enough to sit on a pin head – to start the burn before the main injection of fuel follows a millisecond or two later. A jet travelling at 1000 km/h would cover 25 centimetres in the time between the pilot burn and main burn. Getting all this to happen a couple of thousand times a minute takes incredibly fine timing and production tolerances. Fuel cars in serious volumes into Europe, Japanese channels entering the cylinder are a micron manufacturers have to produce diesels that wide.

Decanter \ BEN THOMAS RAISES THE WHITE FLAG

f all the grapes in all the land, chardonnay is currently Australia’s best performer. Chardonnay from the cool regions in southern Australia has been receiving rave reviews all around the world. It’s my favourite white by a fair stretch, too. Curiously, chardonnay isn’t a wine that’s naturally loaded with flavour. It’s actually quite neutral, but in the hands of a skilled winemaker it can reach soaring heights. You’ll find lemon, grapefruit, citrus blossom and stonefruit characters in most Australian chardonnays, but every region has its own flavour profile. The differences between these regional styles of chardonnay offer something for every white wine drinker.

climates around Australia.”

Stonefruit and melon \ Yarra Valley

Hoddles Creek winemaker Franco d’Anna says Yarra Valley chardonnay has come full circle in the past four years. “It was a bigger style, swung to lean and now it’s heading towards the middle, with more flavour and intensity. Yarra Valley chardonnay can sit in the middle of those styles and do it really well,” d’Anna says. “We’ve moved away from citrus and grapefruit and more back to stonefruit – light ones rather than getting

“it’s the most malleable white grape there is”

“In the past 20 years, like a lot of Australian wineries, we’ve moved away from the heavily oaked, full-bodied wines and there’s now a trend to picking earlier with lower alcohols and natural acidity,” Juniper Estate winemaker Mark Messenger says. There’s a particular clone of chardonnay that’s widely planted in Margaret River – mendoza, or gin gin – which gives Margaret River chardonnay a powerful intensity. “The overriding character of Margaret River chardonnay is mid-palate fruit power – you get mid-palate fruit sweetness with the mendoza clone as well as length,” Messenger says. \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au

The maritime climate of the Mornington Peninsula plays a big part in the flavour profile and structure of its chardonnay. Cooling sea breezes keep daytime temperatures down and help grapes to retain acidity better than warm wine regions. “Chardonnay’s the king of the white grapes. It’s the most malleable white grape there is, with great potential in terms of flavours and mouthfeel. We’re looking for elegance and texture with our chardonnay,” Stonier winemaker Mike Symons says. According to Symons, this leads to a citrus character that runs through the peninsula’s chardonnay. “They’re not sweet-fruited chardonnays, but savoury, with lemon and citrus flavours plus exotic characters I see that are in the other maritime

When Adam Wadewitz moved to Shaw + Smith at the beginning of the year – and the start of this year’s grape harvest – he had shiraz and pinot noir on his mind. The quality of the chardonnay grapes took him by surprise. “Chardonnay shines the brightest up here,” says Wadewitz, who is Shaw + Smith’s chief winemaker. “The Adelaide Hills as a region is so diverse: climate, elevation, rainfall and aspect all play a role. Chardonnay from higher sites, such as Piccadilly, Lenswood and Summertown that are above 500 metres, are really defined by their acid. “There’s an effortless density of flavour that stays with the wines. They’re not skinny wines like Chablis or pronounced like a Puglingy-Montrachet, but there’s a grunt to Adelaide Hills chardonnay.”

Sport

BRIEFS SOCCER Sporting Whittlesea will be in FFV state league 3 north-west again next season after surviving a relegation play-off against Essendon United. The match on Saturday was 0-0 and heading for penalties when Sporting scored with just three minutes left in extra time. Sporting finished 10th of 12 in SL3NW to avoid automatic relegation but had to play for its place in the division against state league 4 west runner-up Essendon United. In state league finals, Corio claimed league 4 with a 6-2 win against Mooroolbark, while Melton claimed league 5 with a 2-1 win over St Kilda. \ BOWLS Bundoora RSL made a dominant start to the Premier Bowls season with a 30-shot win against Burwood District on Saturday. The 16-91 to 2-61 win gives Bundoora top spot after the opening round. In division 1, section 2, Glenroy lost 2-69 to 16-94 against Moonee Valley. Broadmeadows made a winning start in division 2, section 2, 16-88 to 2-61 against Buckley Park. But Craigieburn was not so fortunate, losing 1-70 to 17-86 to Hurstbridge in division 2, section 3. \ NWMCA Pascoe Vale Central gave Clarkefield Brumbies a merciless welcome to the George Luscombe Shield with a 107-run hiding on Saturday. Scott McKay (4-14) and Darren Barker (3-13) were among the wickets as PVC rolled Clarkefield for just 81 in reply to 5-188. A century stand to open Pascoe Vale’s innings built its total.

Openers Cam Hare, on the comeback after his Essendon District football season with Tullamarine was curtailed by injury, made 62 while Brett Barron made 64. In Keith Stringer Shield, Westmeadows (4-136) comfortably beat Northern Lions (83), while Craigieburn (9-237) thrashed Gowanbrae (110) and Oak Park (7-159) beat Flemington Colts (154). \ VTCA Greenvale’s season opener against Strathmore has been compressed to a one-dayer after the association cancelled all Saturday play because of a lack of ready pitches. Greenvale and Strathmore meet at Greenvale on Saturday, while Tullamarine travels to West Coburg and Westmeadows is at Keilor Park. \ BASKETBALL Craigieburn is celebrating a major coup after former Australian international John Dorge signed as the club’s youth league men’s coach for next season. Dorge played in the NBL for 22 seasons and his previous coaching roles include assistant positions in the NBL with Cairns Taipans and NZ Breakers. \ VSDCA Matthew Hunter started his summer with a century as Plenty Valley posted an imposing 8-315 against Brunswick in North-South First XI on Saturday. Hunter’s 109 and Daniel Heatley’s 90 took Plenty Valley from 4-121 to 5-257 with their 136-run stand. Plenty Valley will defend the score this weekend. \

losing start for bundoora Diamond Valley Cricket Association

Bundoora ran out of wickets to lose by 15 runs to Epping on the opening day of Diamond Valley Cricket Association’s Barclay Shield on Saturday. Chasing Epping’s 8-152, Bundoora was all out for 137 in the 37th over. Shupinder Taggar (33) and Jason Kaminski (30) were the only two Bundoora batsmen to pass 20. At Whatmough Park, Old Paradians/ St Francis rolled Riverside for 96 to successfully defend 6-174. Rheece Lewis’s 82 not out held the Wolves’ innings together before Sunni Khan (4-23) and Zaen Taleb (3-13) did the damage with the ball.

Around the division, Lower Eltham beat Rosanna, Macleod beat Mernda, Research/ Eltham Collegians beat Plenty, and reigning premier Diamond Creek beat North Eltham Wanderers.

At Montmorency, Lalor Stars won with 4.5 overs to spare, making 4-166 in reply to the home team’s 6-161.

At Walker Reserve, Whittlesea’s Mitch McAuley (57) and Nathan Gardiner (62) shared a 116-run stand for the second wicket in a 24-run win against Riverside second XI.

Around the division, Thomastown (3-79) accounted for Eltham (77), while Mernda beat Macleod, Rosanna beat Lower Eltham and Panton Hill beat Diamond Creek.\ TEO PELLIZZERI tpellizzeri@mmpgroup.com.au

all-round ability pays off for owen TAC CUP

Woodend’s Jake Owen is the Robert Hyde medallist after winning the Calder Cannons’ best and fairest count on Friday night. Owen, a utility who played across every line this season, won from Aberfeldie inside midfielder Matthew Merlo and Romsey tall defender Jake Lever. Owen and Merlo were tied in the count deep into the home-and-away season before Owen edged in front through the finals. Consistent through the campaign, Owen was named among Calder’s best in 14 of the 18 games he played. His versatility was a big factor in his call-up to the Vic Metro squad for the under-18 national carnival after playing midfield then back then forward through the season. He kicked 18 goals, including a purple patch of 11 in three matches in late July and early August. Doutta Stars’ Mitchell Jensen won the Neil Wood medal for ‘most improved’, while Romsey’s Nathan Blair was named ‘most courageous’ and Brian Price won the Doug McCasker award for being ‘club person of the year’. Meanwhile, Calder has reappointed senior coach Andrew Jago for the 2014 season. After a preliminary final exit this season, the Cannons are already preparing for next year’s campaign. “I’m exceptionally proud of the group,” Jago said. “We had our opportunities in the preliminary final and didn’t take them. “But give Dandenong [Stingrays] their due, we couldn’t put them away and we knew they’d have the legs to run us deep into the last quarter.” Exit interviews have already been done with this year’s group and shortlists have been drawn up for summer trials for next year’s class. “I’d say the strength of this group was their ability to take on honest feedback,” Jago said.

“It was one of the most coachable groups I’ve ever worked with at any level. I’d say our graduating class [top-age players] have pushed themselves, reached their potential . . . and they’ll continue to develop further [as senior footballers]. “Our bottom-agers were devastated they couldn’t send out the top-agers with a premiership.” Jago said he was delighted to be coming back as the team’s coach next season. After a 0-3 start, the Cannons battled back to parity before jumping into the top four by beating the top two on the ladder in the last two rounds. “I’ve very much enjoyed the ride,” Jago said.

“I got as much from the players as I hope they got from me,” Jago said. “I’m blessed to have a good team around me. Ian Kyte [region manager] is a brilliant talent manager and Chris Sevior identifies talent as well as anyone in the TAC Cup system.” Summer training for next year’s group starts on November 14. “We’ve mapped our pre-season and made some adjustments,” Jago said. “Statistically, we laid fewer tackles than any other team in the TAC Cup. That’s one immediate area to look at.” \ TEO PELLIZZERI tpellizzeri@mmpgroup.com.au

There would be no dream start for Greenvale Kangaroos as Prahran won by 17 runs in Victorian Premier Cricket on Saturday. Prahran made 7-179 before bowling out the Kangaroos for 162. Peter Manser (3-27) sparked a top-order collapse that left Prahran 5-29 after Greenvale won the toss and sent them in at Toorak Park. But Prahran captain Simon Coates (79) combined with James Miller (39) and Nicholas Morrey (28no) to help the home team to a competitive total. Daniel Salpietro was the Roos’ other multiple wicket-taker with 2-16. The run chase started brightly for Greenvale, with Eric Ghasperis (52) and James Lidgett (44) getting the score to 1-96. But then both fell quickly to spark a collapse of 4-14, with only Salpietro (41) making double figures from the rest of the batting. In second XI, Prahran chased down Greenvale’s 7-234, making 7-236 with five balls to spare. Greenvale’s Dale McDonald made 107 not out. In third XI, Prahran (9-182) chased down Greenvale’s 5-181.
