he Smith Family is a national charity that supports more than 33,000 disadvantaged children and young people, including more than 7000 in Victoria, through our Learning for Life program. In January we get many calls from stressed families who need help to pay for school books and uniforms. We’ve just launched our Back to School Appeal and are encouraging individuals and groups to sponsor an Australian child so we can help more children. When I tell people The Smith Family focuses on helping kids with their education, they understand why. Without a good education, children and young people are more likely to become disadvantaged adults who struggle with unemployment, welfare dependency and poor health. By helping disadvantaged children pay for books and uniforms and get extra support from tutors and mentors, we hope the cycle of disadvantage will finally end. The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program runs in 12 communities in metro and regional Victoria. The sponsorship can start at prep and continue to support the child through primary and secondary school and into tertiary education. Our dedicated Learning for Life workers are also responsible for coordinating literacy, numeracy and personal development programs, including after-school learning clubs. Many of these programs have been developed through partnerships with schools, local and state governments, and community and business organisations working together to give children in need

EDDIE MORTON

Full cemetery a grave concern BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

STONNINGTON’S closest cemetery, St Kilda, is all but full, according to Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust’s chief operating officer Jane Grover. According to Ms Grover, the seven-hectare cemetery, which opened on June 9, 1855, has fewer than 20 plots available. Springvale Botanical, Melbourne General and Brighton General cemeteries all register as having more plots available. The figures come as the state government moves to review all of the state’s cemeteries following concerns many metropolitan councils will run out of plots by 2035. In 2010, across all eight of the trust’s cemetery sites, 290,608 plots remained, or just 8.1 per cent, according to the state government’s Cemeteries and Crematorium Unit’s report.

The report, released this month, gives estimates on the remaining capacity of Victorian cemeteries. The report says the death rate in Stonnington is steadily increasing; it is estimated to rise from last year’s 378 deaths to 581 in 2035. Ms Grover assured Stonnington residents that despite the lack of space at St Kilda, there was an estimated 25 years’ availability at other trust sites. “St Kilda, like Springvale and Melbourne General Cemetery, is a place of prestige and houses plots of entire families,’’ he said. The Dandenong Road cemetery no longer accepts requests for prepurchased burial plots, but has space for cremations and memorialisation. “St Kilda is tight,’’ Ms Grover said. ‘‘There’s no more than 10 or 20 sites available. People have bought their plots up to 30 years ago just to get in next to the rest of their family. ‘‘There is plenty of space at Brigh-

TOO LATE: Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust’s Jane Grover says there IS only a handful of plots left in St Kilda ton, Cheltenham and Springvale.” The trust is encouraging people to explore Melbourne’s iconic cemeteries to discover fascinating detail about the city’s history. St Kilda cemetery is the final resting place of Australia’s second prime minister, Alfred Deakin; Victoria’s

first premier, Dr William Clark Haines; and Christina Rutherford Macpherson who, along with Banjo Paterson, composed Waltzing Matilda. The trust is developing its Bunurong site in Bangholme, near Patterson Lakes, to accommodate

burials for the next 80 years. “There are some really old cemeteries here in Melbourne that are coming to the end of their life,’’ Ms Grover said. ‘‘It is very important that we look at Springvale and Bunurong and start planning for the future.’’

Hospital visit turns nasty BY LAURA BANKS

LAURISTON’S HIGH FLYERS

lbanks@theweeklyreview.com.au

A man picking up his wife from hospital was assaulted after a dispute over a car space last week. The 64-year-old Armadale man was at The Alfred about 10.45am on January 4 when he became involved in a verbal altercation with a man in a nearby vehicle. The second man, believed to be in his mid-30s, is seen on CCTV helping someone into his car before walking over to the Armadale man, picking him up, turning him upside down and throwing him on to the concrete footpath before returning to his car and driving off. The victim was treated for cuts and scratches. Senior Constable Brendan Tyrrell described the attack as “gutless”. “The victim is very lucky – he could very easily have had his neck broken from this incident,” he said. Anyone with information about the incident should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

JANUARY 16, 2013

Emily Chan and Kimberley Chow (pictured, with Emily on the right) have graduated along with Stonnington’s Young Citizen of the Year, Georgina Davie at the top of Lauriston Girls School’s International Baccalaureate class of 2012. All three students have qualified for the Australian Student Prize after scoring near perfect marks of 45, equivalent to an ATAR of 99.95. Ms Chan has more reason to celebrate after receiving a letter of offer from Cambridge University in Britain. ‘‘I was in shock at first because I thought I bombed in the interview,’’ she said. Ms Chan will study law. The 17-year-old will spend three years boarding at Cambridge and hopes to continue to postgraduate studies. ‘‘I could be away for more than five years,’’ she said. ‘‘I am saddened about leaving my friends and family but they have been such a great support over the past 12 months and I couldn’t have done it without them.’’

Parking fines top $7 million BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com

THE Stonnington Council has collected more than $7.1 million in parking fines in just six months from July 1 after issuing 80,645 tickets across the municipality — more than 3000 a week. Most of the infringements were spread over Prahran, South Yarra, Windsor, Toorak, Malvern and Armadale. The council’s acting-chief executive Geoff Cockram said the parking restrictions were “to ensure turnover of parking spaces to allow people to access vital services and shopping precincts”. The figure came to light as the Sheriff’s Office set up camp at Prahran Town Hall every Wednesday from last week. The stationed officer will advise

High Street Armadale Business Association secretary and part owner of Connie Simonetti Couture, Aurelio Simonetti, was surprised by the fines figure. He said parking on High Street had long been an issue for the association and restrictions were only going to get worse. “The HSABA has had many discussions with council over solving the parking issues along the street, suggesting a number of locations for a multilevel carpark to keep shoppers on the strip for longer,” he said. “The figure takes into account many major shopping strips, but it is still a huge amount of money to come from just parking fines…be careful where you park.’’

In conjunction with the City of Stonnington defensive cycling education group Bike Beyond will host a series of free classes for Stonnington residents at Stanley Grose Reserve in East Malvern from January 23 to February 13. Louise Bricknell (pictured), a defensive cycling instructor from Bike Beyond said defensive cycling helps people to foresee and avoid hazards. “Most serious injuries in cycling accidents occur when the rider has flipped over the handlebars. This is common in car-dooring incidents … We give people the skills to apply emergency braking techniques to avoid that,” Ms Bricknell said.

Fee hike threatens community learning BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

PRAHRAN Community Learning Centre chief executive Angela Stathopoulos fears for the centre’s future after the state government announced drastic fee hikes over the next four years. The government last week confirmed that yearly fees for neighbourhood learning centres across the state offering vocational qualifications would rise from $300 this year to more than $2091 in 2016. The fee increase will be applied to all training organisations registered with the Victorian Registrations and Qualifications Authority, including Armadale not-for-profit organisation Inclusion Melbourne and Yooralla, which both offer VET courses. Prahran Community Learning Centre offers years 9 to 12 equivalent VCAL programs and Youth Education for Life and Learning Access, a community education program that helps prepare 13 to 15-year-

olds return to mainstream education. “It is very concerning because we are a not-for-profit organisation and we do not charge our students to come here,” Ms Stathopoulos said. PCLC currently has more than 40 VCAL and YELLA students with many suffering from behavioural and family issues, and others who have been forced out of mainstream education due to bullying and harassment. “We run regular training sessions with teachers and staff to help support our students and the issues they face, some at our own cost,” Ms Stathopoulos said, adding that they would need to reassess services. The fee increase will cover operating costs, according to Prahran MLA Clem Newton-Brown. “The government is fully aware that providers ... will need time to adjust to this increase, and that is why the VRQA’s move to a full-cost recovery model will be phased in over a period of four years,” he said.

Stonnington mayor Matthew Koce is encouraging residents to “think local” when looking for a charitable cause to supportthis year. The mayor’s calls come after the City of Stonnington handed over a cheque for more than $3200 raised from the Christmas carols series to Malvern’s Very Special Kids foundation last week. Very Special Kids is Victoria’s only children’s hospice and provides respite care, counselling and support for families caring for a child diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Very Special Kids chief executive David Agnew said, “Many children with Very Special Kids are told they will not reach adulthood, or the age of 18.” Cr Koce urged Stonnington residents to start the year with a local charity such as Prahran Mission, Inclusion Melbourne, the Save A Dog Scheme or Very Special Kids. Very Special Kids’ annual Piggy Bank Appeal will return in September. To donate or volunteer, visit vsk.org.au.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ RIGHT ON TIME I don’t expect everything in this life to be perfect but but for Chrissakes some things should be easier than they are. Take public transport. I’ve had a running battle for years with my local bus company because its drivers frequently run ahead of the timetable. I accept that buses can be late -- bad weather, school kids and traffic cause unavoidable delays. But there is no excuse for public transport to run early, whether it’s a bus, tram, train, ferry, hovercraft, zeppelin or flying carpet powdered by magical fairy dust. Stick to the timetable, drivers. It’s not a bloody race. Jeff / via email ■ TIME TO ACT Perhaps the sceptics should start to take climate change seriously now, following the recent heatwave. No more excuses about historical temperature fluctuations, it’s time to act. Switch off your appliances when not in use, think about food miles (are canned tomatoes from

Italy any better than local ones?), go for a swim or have a cool shower instead of putting on the airconditioning, start a compost bin and stop buying stuff you don’t need, especially gifts – why not make a charity donation instead? Also worth considering are solar hot water (our gas bill goes down to less than $50 over summer), ceiling fans, double glazing and a water tank for the garden. We can all do our bit. Get started now, and the planet may thank you. Kate / via email

■ KEEP IT DOWN After the success of the ‘‘Dumb ways to die’’ campaign I am thinking of starting a similar program against foul-mouthed youths on our trains. There is nothing more horrible than a bunch of young people swearing at the tops of their voices while I have my small children with me. Is it not possible to have a conversation without liberal use of some of our more ‘‘colourful’’ language? I’m all for swearing in the

right context – at inane football commentary, fingers jammed in doors, and after discovering you have a flat tyre – but can we please tone it down on public transport? There are words I just don’t want to explain to a five-year-old. Jana / via email

■ THANK GOD THAT’S OVER Oh god, worst Christmas, well I wish there was only one (‘‘Not so merry Christmas’’, RL, December 12). My roll call of disasters includes family fights (we try to get them out of the way early on in the day), the year mum decided it would be ‘‘fancy’’ to make cumquat brandy – it wasn’t fancy, by any measure: food poisoning for the whole family (but I did lose five kilos in a week); what happened when nanna got stuck into the scotch (we still can’t talk about that one), and for a couple of years there a close family member or friend died in December. Nothing says the festive season like a table full of people crying. Sue / via email

he next year in Stonnington will be a decisive one with a new school pitched by politicians and educators, a Supreme Court battle over ‘‘inappropriate’’ high-rise development and a move to safer roads for the growing number of cyclists in the area. While 2012 may have proved disappointing on some key issues, community leaders are optimistic that 2013 will deliver change for the area and its residents. Planning issues look likely to dominate once again, following on from last year when Lend Lease’s 590 Orrong Road development sparked community uproar after

VCAT overturned council’s refusal of a planning application for a 19-building high-rise development, despite more than 600 objections. Stonnington council will take its case to the Supreme Court on April 16. The future of Swinburne University will also be a hot topic this year, following its July 13 announcement it will leave its High Street, Prahran campus.The announcement sparked a series of protest rallies, with teachers and students marching up Chapel Street and to the steps of State Parliament where they submitted petitions of more than 15,000 signatures to

opposition leader Daniel Andrews. Prahran MLA Clem NewtonBrown responded by launching an impassioned campaign and community consultation process to establish a Stonnington secondary school.There is currently no government secondary education school for Stonnington residents apart from the select-entry Melbourne High. Cyclist safety will remain another pressing issue as riders continue to fume over Chapel Street’s alarming rate of dooring incidents, and press for better bike infrastructure on the bustling north-to-south bicycle route.

JANUARY 16, 2013

Stonnington council starts the new year with a younger, greener line up following the October municipal elections where six out of nine councillors were replaced. Two Greens Party candidates, Erin Davie and Sam Hibbins were elected in East and South ward respectively, while 20 year-old Jami Klisaris took her seat alongside veteran councillor John Chandler and Stonnington’s new mayor Matthew Koce in the North ward. As the new year gets under way, we asked some of the community’s movers and shakers to flag what they believe will be the most pressing issues for 2013.

Stonnington has the potential to be one of Melbourne’s most bike-friendly municipalities.The big challenge in 2013 is to ensure this potential is realised, or at least recognised and formalised as a target by the city. Melbourne’s inner suburbs have been thriving with life as local authorities have prioritised public transport, bikes and pedestrians. Stonnington was in danger of missing the boat for this economic revival, but the recent council elections may have changed that. Neighbourhoods come alive when designed for people, but die when they are choked with cars. A street that is designed to attract people on bikes is more friendly to all visitors; where you have people on bikes you have an attractive ambience. We know people in Stonnington want to ride to work, to the shops and other attractions, but because of the fear of traffic many people are scared to ride. So with more investment in good quality infrastructure, those people will have their choice respected. Stonnington has a once-in-ageneration chance to redesign Chapel Street and transform it into one of Melbourne’s most attractive precincts.We are fighting for trams, bikes and pedestrians to be a priority.

INSPECTOR ADRIAN WHITE – LOCAL AREA COMMANDER Crimes, particularly thefts of handbags and mobile phones left unattended in shops and licensed premises, coupled with assaults in the entertainment precincts will always be a heavy focus, but the primary issue I want to tackle in 2013 is in the area of mental health. There is a large proportion of our community that suffers from significant mental health illnesses. These people often lack the support they need to help them cope with their health issues and unfortunately many fall into the judicial system, which is not the best platform to address their needs. There is already much being done within government and public sector circles to address this problem, and I will be doing what I can to assist.

a local school can be a thriving community hub. Last year I secured funds for a feasibility study for a school for our area and I am currently assisting with this process by surveying local families. If you support a new local secondary school I need your help, so please contact me. There are still many hurdles to making a new school a reality, but I am committed to doing all I can to deliver this for the community.

CLEM NEWTON-BROWN – PRAHRAN MLA I plan to focus this year on my goal of getting a new world-class local secondary school for our area. Our area is well serviced with private secondary schools (and the selectentry Melbourne High) but we do not have our own secondary school. Families are forced to either move out of the area when their kids reach year 7 or endure great inconvenience getting to schools in surrounding areas. I believe this is unacceptable. The Albert Park Secondary College is a great example of how

This year will be crucial for preserving the local character, amenity and liveability of our area as the state government finalises its Melbourne Metropolitan Planning Strategy (MMPS), a 30– to 40-year plan aimed at providing a guide to Melbourne’s land use and transport future. We fear apathy could allow the strategy to slip through unnoticed and we’ll then have to deal with a planning strategy that, in our opinion, could be much worse than the one we have. We’re urging residents to express their views at planmelbourne.vic.gov. au before the feedback deadline on Friday, March 1. The state government has declared a shortage of semidetached dwellings and apartments in Melbourne’s middle suburbs and seeks to increase housing density in areas including

Armadale, Malvern, Malvern East and Glen Iris. The strategy calls for more ‘‘infill’’ housing and apartment blocks such as the seven-storey buildings recently approved near Clarence and Finch streets, Malvern East. The strategy, based on recommendations from the Ministerial Advisory Committee, appointed by Planning Minister Matthew Guy, asserts increased density is unavoidable as Melbourne’s population is predicted to grow to 6.5 million plus over the next 40 years. If we as a community work with the council to implement the state government’s newly proposed Neighbourhood Zone, which ‘‘restricts housing growth in areas identified for urban preservation’’, we have a faint chance of curbing the actions of developers who continually show a total disregard for neighbourhood character. MEG has written a submission regarding the Neighbourhood Zone and we will be making a submission to the MMPS. We are also preparing a survey on planning issues for our members and we intend to arrange an information session on the MMPS. Planning issues of continued concern to Stonnington residents are the ever-expanding Chadstone shopping centre; Cabrini Hospital; the recent application for an 18-storey development on the corner of Dandenong and Tooronga roads, 590 Orrong Road; and the never-ending high-rises popping up in South Yarra’s Forrest Hill precinct and Chapel Street, which will spread into the suburbs beyond Prahran and Windsor. We must work to stop developers’ endless targeting of Stonnington.

MATTHEW KOCE – MAYOR Planning and maintaining the amenity and liveability of our community are the biggest issues facing Stonnington today. This continues to be a challenge, particularly given state government projections that Stonnington needs to house about 16,000 additional people between now and 2031. The council is fighting for the community to have a greater say in determining which developments are appropriate and which are not.The council will shortly be representing the community in the Supreme Court, appealing VCAT’s approval for 466 dwellings at 590 Orrong Road. We are also working with state and federal government bodies to advocate for the services required by a growing population, including: better public transport and roads, a public secondary school, upgrading the unsafe and congested South Yarra train station, and separation of the antiquated and dangerous rail crossings on Glenferrie Road, Toorak Road,Tooronga Road, Burke Road and High Street. Stonnington has the second lowest percentage of open space in Victoria, a fact the council is working to address. We are, for the first time, developing a comprehensive long-term public open space strategy to enhance the quality and quantity of open space.

through a carefully planned workout in his boutique gym. It is endlessly adaptable by tweaking load and intensity, so everyone – students, mums, professional athletes – can do it. Flexible memberships range from $140–$280, depending on attendance at the morning and evening sessions.

The Verdict This is one serious adrenalin charge. Upon arrival, JT discusses our injuries, weaknesses and goals, and notes our next of kin (gulp). The one-hour class starts with warm-up and loosening tight muscles while absorbing the day’s program scrawled in Texta on the mirror. JT drives and nurtures the group of eight, correcting technique and making sure we get away with absolutely nothing. Our group works in pairs through five-minute sets of pull-ups, push-ups and squats, aiming to beat each previous round. My muscular soreness over the following days was a sure sign that CrossFit gave me a New Year wake-up call. >>

CIRCUS

W

hen Cirque du Soleil’s OVO rolls into town this week, so will a kitchen, a school, offices, warehouses, around 54 performers from 16 countries and a roster of more than 120 behind-the-scenes staff.That’s not including the props – an 18 x 6m wall with built-in trampolines, a six-metre high mechanical flower and an 8.5m x 6.7m mysterious egg that is the object of curiosity and wonder for the insects at the centre of the OVO narrative. The numbers are staggering, and getting it all to Australia took six weeks by ship from Seattle to Brisbane, where the show had its Australian debut in September. For assistant artistic director Jen Bender, working on such a large production with a huge but tightknit ‘‘family’’ has been the highlight of her career, allowing her to have cocktails with former Olympians one night and dinner with Chinese acrobats the next. ‘‘We’re always together for meals and the OVO company travels together like a touring city,’’ she says. ‘‘Cirque du Soleil is on such a grand scale and there are so many artists doing so many different things. We’ve got people who do acrobatics, hand-balancing acts, foot-juggling acts, trapeze.There’s just so much that happens in a single show.’’ OVO will be performed in the

OVO When: January 17 – March 24 Where: The blue and yellow big top at 473 Docklands Drive, Docklands. Tickets: from $64 at cirquedusoleil.com/ovo

familiar blue and yellow ‘‘tent city’’ from January 17 to March 24. Much like the animated films A Bug’s Life and Antz, the story of OVO takes place in the microcosmic world of insects. When a mysterious egg appears (ovo is the Portuguese

word for egg), the colony is awestruck by the curious addition to their world, setting off a flurry of activity represented through dance, flying acts, trapeze, diablo juggling and hand-balancing. Many performers are professional

gymnasts, although there are some former Olympians. While former Cirque du Soleil shows have more of a high art approach to circus, Bender says OVO is particularly good for children. ‘‘It’s really bright and colourful

and energetic ... if people were wanting to introduce kids to the magic of circus and live theatre, this is definitely the show to do it with.’’ MICHAEL RYAN mryan@mmpgroup.com.au

Visiting Pom makes the most of his holiday BY EWEN McCRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au WITH the next Ashes series just around the corner, you’ll soon be hard pressed to find much goodwill in Australian cricket towards the Poms at the moment. But down at Glen Iris Cricket Club, they’re over the moon at the form of English import Jack Taylor, whose aggressive batting and bowling is setting up his side for an assault on the Dunstan Shield finals. Taylor, 21, entered the Christmas break as the competition’s leading runscorer with 432 at an average of 54, including a Dunstan Shield record 210 against Surrey Hill, and a swashbuckling 122 off 67 balls against Mont Albert. And he returned from his Christmas break on Saturday with 50 as Glen Iris reached 5/95 chasing East Doncaster’s first innings of 130. Taylor also has 16 wickets with his off breaks to plACE Glen Iris comfortably second on the ladder.

‘‘That was my first double [hundred] so it was pretty special,’’ Taylor said. ‘‘It’s always good to make runs and I think it’s flowed through and helped my bowling. ‘‘I probably wasn’t getting the runs I wanted early in the season, but I’m a bit more focussed now and it’s paying off.’’ Taylor joined Glen Iris from English county side Gloucestershire, where he is in the early stages of a promising first-class career. And while he says it a different standard back home, he’s enjoying his time Down Under. ‘‘County cricket is pretty full on, with international and England players around you,’’ he said. ‘‘But I’m loving it down at Glen Iris. They’re a good bunch of lads and a pretty young side, which is great.’’ This is Taylor’s second trip to Australia after playing grade cricket in Adelaide two seasons ago, and he’s enjoying the less hectic schedule local club cricket provides.

‘‘It was a pretty busy end to the county season last year so I just wanted the opportunity to come out, train hard and work on my game,’’ Taylor said. While it’s still early days, Taylor has lofty ambitions for his cricketing career. ‘‘The ultimate goal is Test cricket for England. That’s the pinnacle of the game so that would be the dream,’’ he said. ‘‘And there’s also things like IPL [Indian Premier League] which I’m massively interested in if the opportunity came along.’’ For now though, Taylor is focussed on Glen Iris. ‘‘I’ll stay as long as Glen Iris is still in the competition. Hopefully we can go all the way,’’ he said. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

MATCH REPORT

BRIEFS

Best of the season but not good enough for Malvern ARI HATZIS

MALVERN knocked up its highest total of the season but still lost to Werribee in Sub District cricket at the weekend. Playing at home, Malvern had contributors right through the order as they returned from the break with a bang to amass an imposing 5/242 in the 45 overs. But Werribee’s batsmen were equally impressive, chasing down the target with four balls to spare. Malvern openers Liam Dunne and Dean McAuley got their team off to a solid start with a 35-run stand before Dunne was out for 13, bringing James Lynch to the crease. He was forced to play second fiddle to McAuley as they built a 48-run partnership of which Lynch made just 12 before being trapped in front by Adam Alifraco. McAuley continued to plunder runs, moving to 55 before he was out to leave Malvern with two new batsmen at the crease. Fortunately for the home side it was two of their most in-form batsmen of the summer, and Damien Hale and Tom Knight pushed the score along at a brisk pace. Hale was out for 47 following the 68-run stand but the score continued to tick along as Knight finished on 48 not out and Monto Perera bludgeoned 33 off 15 balls at the end. Werribee also started well with the bat in the chase, moving to 45 before Ajay Bhatt bowled David Wolfe for 33.

■ WANDERERS POISED Melbourne Wanderers are in a strong position after day one of the Quiney Shield clash with Moorabbin West. A century to Ryan McConville led Moorabbin West made 160, before Wanderers moved to 1/49 by the close. ■ TOORAK IN CONTROL Toorak-Prahran has already wrapped up first-innings points and will be chasing an outright victory when the Menzies Shield match with Notting Hill-Brandon Park resumes on Saturday. After bowling out the hosts for just 78, Toorak Prahran advanced to 4/154 off just 35 overs to be in complete control.

A MAN IN FORM: Malvern’s Dean McAuley top-scored with 55 against Werribee Bhatt and Tim Arbon bowled tight spells but, for the most part, struggled to take wickets as Werribee strung together three partnerships of more than 40. But, Bhatt and Arbon apart, it was a forgettable day for Malvern’s bowlers as they leaked runs and lacked penetration. While no Werribee player passed

50, they put themselves in a winning position with consistent performances down the order. Needing just four from the final, a boundary off the second carried Werribee to 5/243. Malvern captain Simon Conway was left lamenting a poor day in the field after a superb batting effort.

“It was a bit of a heartbreaker,” Conway said. “We just bowled too many ‘four balls’ and a good batting side like will punish you. “It was a good score for a onedayer but it just wasn’t our day.” Malvern is three games out of finals just four rounds to play. EWEN McRAE

Bowlers drag True Blues to final BY EWEN MCRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au PRAHRAN booked a place in the Premier Cricket one-day final after a bizarre day’s play against Frankston Peninsula at the weekend. After managing only 125 with the bat after winning the toss, the True Blues skittled the hosts for 96 to earn a meeting with Melbourne in the final on January 27. Prahran made a horror start, losing prolific opener Adam Bull for a duck in the first over on a pitch that had few demons in it. Dan Salpietro and Simon De Bolfo

■ CENTURY IN VAIN A Neil Schlittler century wasn’t enough to get Prahran Seconds home in the Premier Cricket match with Frankston at the weekend. Schlittler made a superb 142 on his comeback from injury as the True Blues, chasing Frankston’s 6/273, fell agonisingly short when they were bowled out for 260.

began rebuilding the innings, but when the former fell for 10 it sparked a collapse of 3/2 to reduce the visitors to 4/23. Stephen Seymour, on his return from his second hamstring injury of the season, and skipper Sam Coates then came together but found it hard to penetrate the field. Coates fell for five and new man Matt Wilcox made nine before Seymour was out for a top score of 31. At 7/73 things looked bad for the visitors, but handy cameos from the lower order ensured the True Blues passes 100 and gave themselves a shot at victory.

Then, once again, the True Blues bowlers delivered as Seymour bowled the dangerous Matthew Chasemore in the opening over and the ever-consistent Rhys Adams snared Chris Dew for two. None of Frankston’s top six could reach double figures as Prahran reduced the hosts to 6/26. And despite some fight by Robert Salerni (19) and James Miller (34), Frankston never looked like threatening the target. Seymour’s fiery opening spell netted him 2-7, while Salpietro (3-19), Adams (2-13) and Wilcox (2-17) all weighed in.

Prahran coach Andrew Walton was pleased with the result, but said his team needed to improve to retain the one-day crown won last year. “Our top order seems to have one good game and then one not as good game so we’ll be looking for more from them,” Walton said. “It’s good that we get the chance to defend our title, and also good that some of our younger guys will get the chance to experience a final in the firsts.” Prahran is likely to regain Chris Rogers and Dimitri Mascarenhas from Big Bash duty for the meeting with Melbourne.

■ STILL ON TOP Melbourne took the points in a tight premier bowls match with Bundoora RSL at the weekend to stay on top of the table. Both teams won two rinks but Melbourne took the match 14-75 to 4-69. ■ JAKSCH GETS A NUMBER Former Oakleigh Charger Kristian Jaksch will wear number 34 at Greater Western Sydney. Jaksch, who was taken at pick 12 in last year’s national draft, inherited the number from Devon Smith who will wear number 10 in 2013. ■ LIKE TO BE AN UMP? The VAFA is looking for umpires for the 2013 season. Anyone interested in trying goal, field or boundary umpiring is urged to attend training sessions at Elsternwick Park, beginning February 4 at 6pm. ■ GET YOURSELF GRADED Fawkner Park Tennis Centre will hold a grading night on January 29 for the upcoming season of social competitions. There are singles and doubles competitions for men and women across all skill levels. Contact the club on 9820 0611 for more information.
