West locked into heroin crisis

First jab was last for footballer

BY NICK TOSCANO

CRIMINAL charges are unlikely to be laid over the death of a Werribee footballer who suffered a heroin overdose, a coroner has said. Jade Dorogi died on May 5, 2009, after overdosing during his first time of using heroin. An inquest at the Coroner’s Court on Friday examined the circumstances surrounding the 25-year-old’s fatal overdose, including whether he had been injected with the drug by another person. Detective Senior Constable Corey Page said Dorogi was believed to have been a “vehement opponent of heroin”. The court heard Dorogi had a broken left thumb, but the needle’s puncture mark was on his right arm. “His pre-existing injury to his left thumb would have made it difficult to press the plunger,” Senior Constable Page said. The court heard Dorogi had been using the drug with a relative on the night prior to his death. The pair were spotted beside the Princes Highway, near the Forsyth Road overpass, by a passing motorist about 4.15am. The motorist phoned emergency services, who tried to resuscitate Dorogi before he was taken to Western Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Under cross-examination, the relative said he had had a memory blackout because he had taken a handful of prescription Xanax pills on the afternoon Dorogi died, and that had been the case until he awoke the next day. Coroner John Olle said he would hand down his ruling at a later date, including whether the case would be referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Sharp rise: HealthWest CEO Gail O’Donnell and project manager James Dunne say Wyndham needs more prescribing doctors to meet demand for methadone.

SHORTAGES of clean syringe programs and GPs prescribing methadone will lead to more drugrelated deaths in Melbourne’s outer west, warns a report revealing the heroin scourge is “no longer just an inner-city issue”. Demand for injecting equipment in the outer west has increased faster than anywhere else in Melbourne, with Health Department figures used in the report showing syringe distribution has more than doubled in a decade, far exceeding population growth of 40 per cent. While Maribyrnong has the most injecting drug users in the west, the report by care network HealthWest reveals the problem is worsening in outer areas. Demand for needles and syringes in Brimbank increased 211 per cent, to more than 306,000, from 2002-12. Wyndham recorded a rise of 173 per cent, to 199,500 last year. Demand for methadone, a heroin replacement dispensed from pharmacies, increased 390 per cent in Melton and by 165 per cent in Wyndham in the same period. More than 460 people across Melton and Wyndham are on methadone, placing a heavy burden on the four local GPs who are actively prescribing it. HealthWest project manager James Dunne said the lack of drug safety programs in outer suburbs meant “the cycle of drug addiction keeps going”. “People are having to travel quite far to access GPs who prescribe methadone, but methadone distributors aren’t located evenly across the west – they’re clustered around commercial centres,” he said. “Because large patches are going

without pharmacies, that seriously affects a person’s ability to stay on the methadone program.” Werribee pharmacist Greg Meaghan, who dispenses methadone to about 85 people a day, said the shortage of prescribing GPs in Wyndham meant patients were at risk of reverting to heroin if they missed an appointment or had a falling out with their doctor. Mr Meaghan said many doctors were reluctant to prescribe methadone because drug addicts could be aggressive. Drug addicts in outer suburbs also faced barriers to accessing clean syringes such as the cost of catching public transport to needle distributors in Footscray. Harm Reduction Victoria executive officer Jenny Kelsall said the consequences of inadequate methadone and syringe programs included more overdoses and HIV and hepatitis C infections. The HealthWest report urges the state government to establish a safe-injecting facility in the western suburbs, provide greater investment in syringe distribution and methadone programs, actively encourage GPs to prescribe methadone and set up formal links between local health services. Community Services Minister Mary Wooldridge is reviewing the state’s methadone network and has announced $11  million of funds to open ‘withdrawal beds’ to wean addicts off high doses of methadone and provide extra training to increase providers.

Depression, suicide city’s growing scourge BY LAURA LITTLE EXPERTS warn increases in bullying, family violence and economic disadvantage, coupled with a lack of support services, are driving up youth suicide rates in Wyndham. While there are no official figures for youth suicide in the municipality, GPs and mental health workers say more young people are experiencing mental health problems than five to 10 years ago, and more are taking their own lives. South Western Melbourne Medicare Local child and youth

mental health liaison officer Sheryl Tunnecliff said youth mental health was a big issue in Wyndham where anxiety, depression, bullying and self-harm were major concerns. Orygen Youth Health director Patrick McGorry said a growing number of young people were resorting to suicide because they couldn’t get the help that they needed. He said many youths in Wyndham experienced isolation, a lack of purpose, jobs and training. His concerns are backed up by a recent survey of high school students by South Western Medicare Local. A

total of 108 students from Wyndham and Hobsons Bay were asked about their mental health. Common complaints included they had to wait too long to see someone, seeking help was too complicated and service providers didn’t understand them. Werribee GP Joe Garra said it was disturbing that young people felt they couldn’t get help. ‘‘We need to give them permission to seek help by letting them know it is OK to talk to someone and raising awareness of the help that it available.’’ Lifeline: 13 11 14 beyondblue: 1300 224 636

There was no sign, and if only we’d talked, says grieving mother There were days where she thought she would drive herself insane, trying to work out why Emanuele had taken his own life. But slowly, she came to realise that speaking to her family and counsellors was helping her make sense of her son’s death. “Suicide is a sad, sad mental illness. People talk about cancer; why aren’t they talking about suicide? “In my culture it is taboo, they think that your family is cursed if someone commits suicide. But speaking up helps you heal.’’ Kelela said she was grateful for the support she had received from her son’s friends, local businesses and the community. She said it had helped her through and taught her more about her son. Now, she wants to do the same for other parents whose children have taken their own lives. “I would like to look at starting up a group to assist parents and visit schools and get children to open up.’’ — Laura Little

Michael Copp

EMANUELE Tausinga didn’t show any warning signs. The outgoing and popular 22-yearold seemed to have it all: great friends, a talent for writing songs and mixing beats, and a bright future in the music industry. But last October, he took his own life. Two weeks before his death, Emanuele confided in a cousin that he thought he might be depressed but conceded he didn’t know enough about depression to be sure. When his mother Kelela found out she tried to find someone to talk to him. She never imagined that just a couple weeks later her youngest child would commit suicide. “Unless you are a professional you wouldn’t have seen [the signs] . . . there was no sign at all,” she said. “He was a gentle being. He didn’t cut himself, he liked to dress good. His brothers used to tease him. Girls loved him.” In the weeks following Emanuele’s death, Kelela wanted to shut herself away from the world.

Open up: Kelela Tausinga says people need to talk about youth depression and suicide.

Werribee’s smell stigma tipped to return with ‘illegal’ tip Colleen Hartland said increasing the above-ground height of the mound raised risks of bad odour, dust, leakage and contaminants that could end up in surface and ground water. Liberal counterpart Andrew Elsbury said the council’s expansion plans were a “blight on the community and something we have to fight”. ALP candidate for Lalor Joanne Ryan helped lead a successful 1998 campaign against CSR’s plans for a toxic dump at the same Wests Road site. “What I learned 15 years ago is democracy only works hard for us when we work hard for it,” she said. The council will apply to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal to remove a reference in the permit that allows for a maximum above-ground height of 100 metres. The Western Region Environment Group will attend the hearing to argue the tip is operating illegally because council had granted the planning permit to itself, and that residents hadn’t been consulted in line with planning requirements. Council chief executive Kerry Thompson said residents had been notified of the upcoming hearing

Bears to soothe siblings A Point Cook family will donate 100 teddy bears to Werribee Mercy Hospital for siblings of stillborn babies. Kath and Steve Currie decided to donate the bears after their daughter Melinda was stillborn at 38 weeks on July 17. The hospital gave their other daughter Elianna a ‘‘sibling bear’’ so that she had something to cuddle every night. The family decided to repay the hospital’s kindness by asking that bears be brought to Melinda’s funeral instead of flowers. Mrs Currie said the bears would ensure no sibling left the hospital with empty arms. SEAN O’MAHONEY

WERRIBEE is at risk of reclaiming its stigma as an odorous wasteland, politicians and protesters say, unless the council scraps plans for a 45-metre-high mountain of trash. A public backlash against the controversial plans reached tipping point at a rally of almost 80 residents in Werribee’s CBD on Saturday. The Environment Protection Authority has confirmed the council is drafting an application to increase the height of the above-ground waste mound at its disposal centre in Wests Road. The mound recently reached a height of 26 metres and, according to council’s master plan, it could eventually go much higher. Werribee resident Julian Menegazzo, who lives nearby, said the expanded mound would “perpetuate the stigma” attached to Werribee in the past, when Melburnians copped wafts from the sewage farm while travelling on the Princes Freeway. “Melbourne Water worked so hard to reduce odours,” he said. “Now thousands of motorists will pass that mound and will again associate Werribee with that smell.” Western Metropolitan Greens MP

Men on drug charges

Ferry ticket twice train fare: backer

A Truganina man has been charged after police seized more than 700 hydroponic cannabis plants from houses in Melbourne’s south-east. The plants, with a street value of more than $1 million, were found during raids in Keysborough, Clayton and Noble Park. Detectives arrested a Truganina man, 24, and a Keysborough man, 18, during a raid on July 23. They have been charged with cultivating cannabis and other drug offences and remanded to face Melbourne Magistrates Court on October 22.

Help sought over robbery

A RETURN trip on a proposed ferry service from Werribee to the city is likely to cost twice as much as a zone 1 and 2 train fare. Planning Minister Matthew Guy, who has been investigating the feasibility of a ferry from Werribee South to Docklands since last May, has revealed that commuters can expect to pay about $20 for a return trip when the service begins in 2015.

Lyons Capital, the company behind Werribee South’s Wyndham Harbour development where the proposed ferry will dock, says ticket prices could reach $22. A daily zone 1 and 2 train ticket costs $11.84. However, Mr Guy and the developer are confident commuters will use the ferry because it will be a reliable service and vessels will have free wi-fi. Mr Guy said another government report into the proposed service, which will outline the project’s policy

operate between Werribee South and Port Melbourne’s Station Pier. The developer’s preferred route is at odds with the government’s plan for the ferry to sail to Docklands, with stops at Altona and Williamstown. “Lyons has initially nominated Station Pier for commuters due to a commuter service to Docklands not being viable if the speed limit up the Yarra River was not increased to ensure a travel time under 50 minutes,” Mr Miller said.

Police are appealing for information about an armed robbery in Werribee South. A man, 31, was robbed while walking along Beach Road about 3pm on July 27. He was threatened with a knife and told to hand over his wallet. The offender then got into a white VR or VS Commodore driven by another man towards Werribee.

Welfare gets our vote: single parents stream for their entire lives, whether you’re married to James Packer or have three kids on your own in Werribee North.’’ Hoppers Crossing single mother Janet Tregear, who works six days a week in two jobs, said most single parents were already in the workforce. She fears the cuts will push her family into poverty. “At the moment I’ve got power bills coming out of my ears and I can’t get ahead. I’m really struggling.” Wyndham Vale’s Kerry Arch, of lobby group United Sole Parents of Australia, said national petitions and rallies would keep the heat on politicians ahead of the election. Liberal candidate for Lalor Nihal Samara said the Liberal Party was committed to boosting jobs for mature-age workers and implementing “genuine welfare reform”. Greens’ Lalor candidate Beck Sheffield-Brotherton said the Greens wanted a Newstart increase and a reversal of the parenting payment changes.

MARK SMITH

SINGLE parents in Lalor feeling the pinch after losing up to $110 a week in Centrelink payments want welfare to be the dominant issue during the run-up to next month’s election. Former prime minister Julia Gillard’s decision to shift thousands of single parents from parenting payments onto the Newstart allowance caused controversy in her seat of Lalor, which had 4973 families affected by the change – the highest number in Australia. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has flagged he will weigh up whether to reverse the controversial change. But the ALP’s Lalor candidate, Joanne Ryan, said she supported the shift to the dole when a parent’s youngest child turns 8 because it was working to break the poverty cycle. Ms Ryan, who was a single motherof-three for more than six years, said the welfare shift had moved about 10 per cent of affected parents in the electorate into the workforce. “It’s actually trying to change a culture by saying to women all girls need the potential to have an income

Lalor hopeful slams ALP’s PNG policy BY NICK TOSCANO THE Labor candidate vying to replace Julia Gillard as Lalor MP has condemned the federal government’s latest asylum seeker policy as a vote-grabbing election fix. Joanne Ryan said the policy of resettling all asylum seeker boat arrivals in Papua New Guinea had been “driven by an agenda I don’t subscribe to”, adding she hoped it would be dumped after the September 7 election. The plan increases Australia’s humanitarian intake from UN refugee camps to 20,000, with a possible rise to 27,000. “If the PNG solution delivers us a Labor government and the opportunity to increase our humanitarian intake, it would have been a compromise worth making, as long as that beyond the election we can step back from it,” Ms Ryan said. Under the new policy, every asylum seeker who arrives in Australia by boat without a visa will be sent to PNG for processing and possible resettlement.

Ms Ryan is concerned the policy, which she says is “driven by people’s fear”, appeared to fly in the face of Australia’s obligations under international law. She also said work rights for asylum seekers living in the community on bridging visas should be reinstated in the wake of the PNG solution, because the ban was no longer needed as a deterrent. The impact of the work ban has been particularly felt in Lalor, where welfare groups such as Werribee’s UnitingCare and the Salvation Army have faced a massive increase in demand for emergency relief, UnitingCare Werribee Support and Housing ran out of food vouchers for the first time in 13 years, saying it couldn’t cope with the extra demand of groups of up to 150 asylum seekers being released into transitional housing at Tarneit every six weeks since August 2012. Asylum Seeker Resource Centre’s Jana Favero said a work ban for up to five years was creating an underclass of future Australians.

Parolee released despite doubts Burton she had been worried about Hawkins’ behaviour two days before his release. “I didn’t believe that he was well [enough] to be released,” Ms Bell said. She said Ms Burton had become frightened of Hawkins after his release from hospital, indicating she no longer wanted to live with him. The Coroners Court heard a lack of appropriate accommodation meant Hawkins stayed with Ms Burton in the days before he killed her. Werribee Community Corrections parole officer Judit Huszar told the court she would have urged Ms Burton to contact police and would have informed the parole board if she had known she was scared. She said there was nothing to indicate Hawkins posed a threat to Ms Burton. Coroner Ian Gray will hand down his findings at a later date. Lifeline: 13 11 14

A SOCIAL worker did not support the release of a parolee who went on to murder a Hoppers Crossing woman with a meat cleaver, an inquest has heard. Jayson Hawkins, 37, slashed the throat of his ex-girlfriend while he was on parole on June 26, 2009, six days after being released from Werribee Mercy Hospital’s mental health ward. Hawkins was arrested and charged with the murder of Margaret Burton, 40, but committed suicide while in custody and never stood trial. A coronial inquest heard Hawkins had been admitted to the hospital’s psychiatric unit as an involuntary patient in the weeks leading up to Ms Burton’s death. He was released on June 19 after risk assessments determined he was not a danger to himself or others. His community services officer, Emma Bell, said she had told Ms

Criminal charges could be laid against a tenant after a Laverton house was trashed at the weekend. Laverton’s Sergeant Stephen Bosnar said the owner of the Bladin Street house made a complaint to police after finding a couch on the roof and a mountain of debris and furniture on the lawn and hanging from trees. “I have no idea how they got the couch on the roof,” he said. Sergeant Bosnar said the property was already vacant as a result of a VCAT hearing. A Hobsons Bay council spokeswoman said the council ‘‘will take advice from police” about the damaged property. “This is a matter between the owner and the tenant. Once the property has been assessed for insurance purposes, the owner may contact the council to discuss hard waste removal.”

Hepatitis rates up in Wyndham BY LAURA LITTLE

MARK SMITH

At a stretch: Denise Morris gets active.

Seniors’ knees-up a move for gym, not dance floor THREE months ago, Denise Morris had such severe back pain that she could barely think about spending a few minutes on her exercise bike. But after taking part in a regular Heart Foundation fitness class for seniors, the Wyndham Vale retiree is riding 10 kilometres a day. Ms Morris was initially hesitant

about taking part in the classes, designed to help seniors with underlying medical conditions stay active. “[But] since joining the class my energy levels have certainly increased. I definitely feel fitter and more inclined to do things and get active.” The Heartmoves classes are part of the federal government’s Healthy

Communities Initiative, which aims to improve the health, fitness and general well-being of Wyndham residents. The municipality has nine specially-trained instructors who run six classes. – Laura Little Details: 9742 0777

HEPATITIS infection rates have increased in Wyndham in the past six months, new Health Department figures reveal. The department has received 210 notifications of viral hepatitis in the city since December. The figures follow a report released by Hepatitis Victoria in February, which revealed Wyndham had a high number of people at risk of developing hepatitis B and C. Western Health clinical nurse consultant Sally Watkinson wants to raise awareness of the need for screening and monitoring of people living in high-risk communities, to reduce their chances of developing hepatitis. Ms Watkinson hopes that improved screening rates can prevent the infection from

becoming chronic liver disease. Viral hepatitis is the main cause of liver cancer and the number one reason for liver transplants. “The number of people with severe liver disease as a result of hepatitis B or hepatitis C has risen significantly in recent years,’’ she said. ‘‘With the right care and treatment, the need for a liver transplant or the development of cancer from hepatitis can be avoided.” South Western Melbourne Medicare Local chief executive Gaylene Coulton said there was also a need for better support for people living with hepatitis and local healthcare providers. “It’s important to continue to share the knowledge with local GPs and nurses so they can help our community become better informed about this infection.’’

Libs push upper house rethink BY LAURA LITTLE

MARK SMITH

WERRIBEE should be included in a different upper house region to the rest of Wyndham, according to a Liberal Party submission on proposed electoral boundary changes. The Liberals want the new Werribee electorate – which would take in Werribee, Wyndham Vale, Werribee South and Little River – included in the Western Victoria region instead of the Western Metropolitan region as proposed by the Electoral Boundaries Commission. Releasing its proposed boundaries in June, the commission flagged its intention to remove the seat of Yuroke from Western Metropolitan region to make way for new seats in Sunbury and Werribee. Parts of Werribee and Wyndham Vale are currently in the Lara electorate and are part of the

Western Victoria region, which includes Geelong and Ballarat. The rest of Wyndham is part of the Western Metropolitan region. The commission believes the entire municipality should be located in one region. In its submission, the Liberal Party said that adding the Werribee electorate to Western Victoria would result in “minimal change” to existing upper house boundaries. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury, who recently moved his office from Keilor to Werribee, said it was too early to comment on the impact the proposed changes would have on Wyndham. However, he said the upper house boundaries could change significantly with the removal of just one lower house seat. The EBC will reveal the final boundaries in October.

Platform for change Construction of platforms at Wyndham Vale railway station is about to begin, as the Regional Rail Link project edges closer to completion. The station, which will be in metropolitan zone two, will be serviced by V/Line trains when it opens in 2016. An RRL Authority spokeswoman said under-platform drainage works were almost complete. A pedestrian bridge is also being built to help passengers access the station.

Drop-in centre a vital resource BY LAURA LITTLE

advice from a maternal and childhealth nurse, lactation consultants and breastfeeding counsellors. ABA spokeswoman Jessica Leonard said the centre would be an important source of information and support. “Drop-in centres are really helpful, particularly for young mums because they know there is somewhere to go for help to get through the hard times and get information,” she said. Ms Leonard said some mums gave up on breastfeeding because they found it difficult, did not have social or cultural support or did not know where to get help. For more details about the drop-in centre, phone 9742 8148.

MICHAEL COPP

BREASTFEEDING advocates say the launch of a drop-in centre in Wyndham will provide young mothers with a place to seek help. Wyndham council has opened a drop-in centre at Werribee’s Sister Rita Douglas Kindergarten in the hope of encouraging more mums to breastfeed. Latest health statistics show breastfeeding rates in Wyndham have fallen below the state average, with fewer than 50 per cent of mums continuing to breastfeed once their baby is three months old. Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) guidelines recommend that mothers continue breastfeeding until their baby reaches at least six months. The council says the centre – which will be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays – will allow mums to seek face-to-face

‘There is somewhere to go for help to get through hard times and get information.’

Art helps young mums find a place in the world Young mothers such as Tinika Wharemate-Waiti (pictured with son Sammyjames, six months) are using paint, charcoal and stencils to carve out a sense of identity and break down stigma. Mums in their teens and early 20s have been taking part in an art program run by Werribee Support and Housing and community artist Adam Douglas. It’s aimed at encouraging self-expression and conveying how having children at a young age has changed their lives. Youth projects officer Lauren Perry says the young mums have been extremely keen to take on the challenge. Their work will be displayed in an exhibition at Wyndham’s youth resource centre on August 16. Details: 9742 6452.

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

Help for our hidden homeless By Goya Dmytryshchak

FAMILY violence, sexual assault and family breakdown remain the main causes of youth homelessness, according to the manager of an Altona-based support service for people in Hobsons Bay and Moonee Valley. Rhonda Collins, who heads Latitude: Directions for Young People, which is part-funded by the Department of Human Services, said the hidden homeless were the theme of National Homeless Persons’ Week, which continues until Sunday. Next Tuesday, Hobsons Bay councillors Angela Altair and Luba Grigorovitch will sleep on a couch in the civic centre in Altona to raise $10,000 for Latitude. Ms Collins said it was unknown how many young people were couch surfing. “While we’ve got about 175 people on the current

pause Conceiving naturally doesn’t always go to plan. Melissa Cunningham and Stephanie Zevenbergen report on how IVF is changing the lives of people in Melbourne’s west, one baby at a time.

hormones from IVF or the Chinese medicine, but one way or another she conceived two children naturally. According to Monash IVF, for most couples pregnancy occurs naturally within 12 months of trying to conceive. But for up to 20 per cent of couples it’s a different story; they keep trying and nothing happens or they achieve pregnancy only to miscarry.

In Sunshine, Gareth Weston is responsible for the births of more than 500 babies. The Sunshine Monash IVF clinical director and fertility specialist says the best part of his job is seeing a positive result. “I enjoy seeing the glee on the patients’ faces when they achieve success – it’s a very great privilege,” he says. “We have many patients that come back to visit us ... that has got to be what keeps you going.” Weston has worked in Sunshine since the clinic was built in 2008. He enjoys the “multicultural flavour” of patients in the west but says it does bring unique challenges. “It presents its own challenges, particularly with religious and cultural differences,” he says. “We’re proud to say we treat all religious cultures and deal with their needs. “At the moment, Monash is having a major sperm drive to try to meet a desperate need. In particular, we struggle if multicultural patients want multicultural sperm.”

After 13 failed attempts to get pregnant through IVF, Leah Neill and Dallas Fishley had almost given up on the dream of having a family. Over seven years of seeking treatment through the Monash IVF clinic, the couple endured 12 negative results and one positive. In the latter case, within six weeks Neill had lost the baby. “It was extremely disheartening,” she says. “By the eighth, ninth and 10th time I began to think, why are we doing this? We aren’t getting anywhere. It was one heartbreak after another. The whole process consumes you. “Emotionally, I was up and down all the time due to the effects the hormones were having on my body.

alking through the front door of Danielle Toselli’s Sunbury home, it’s evident children live here. There are toys on the floor and two little boys play and laugh in the lounge room. Lachlan is four and Brody is two. It sounds like a cliche, but Toselli will tell any person struggling to conceive to never give up hope. In 2005, newly married Toselli and her husband, Frederic, decided they wanted a family But it didn’t go to plan. They were referred to Melbourne IVF in 2006. “It was overwhelming, it was just so much to take in,” Toselli says. “I think back to then, when IVF was really a taboo – people didn’t talk about it. It was really difficult. We just had to rely on each other.” The couple put their hopes into 19 of Toselli’s eggs, but none of them resulted in a baby. “It was devastating – I remember crying in the lifts at the hospital,” she says. “It’s just one of those things where you feel so out of control ... no matter how much you want it and how much you’re willing to pay, there’s just nothing you can do about it.” Toselli estimates IVF cost the couple about $10,000. “We would have sold our house to have children,” she says. “We didn’t care – whatever it cost, we managed to find the money.” Six months after trying IVF with no success the couple turned to Chinese medicine as an alternative. That didn’t work, either. So they decided to take a break from trying to conceive and soon gave up hope on ever having children. “We put our house on the market and decided that we were going to buy where we wanted to live, build a big house, have a big debt and just live for our material things because we wouldn’t have children of our own,” Toselli says. Two weeks after the “for sale” sign went up outside their house, Toselli discovered she was pregnant. “It was weird, very surreal and confusing,” she says. To this day, she’s not sure if it was the

friends and family fall pregnant, but there is a part of you that wonders why it isn’t happening for you,” she says. “I was on very strong hormones ... everything revolved around making sure I injected myself with my hormones at the right time every day.” After spending thousands of dollars on IVF, in 2010 the couple decided to take a year-long break from the process. “Our family had been so supportive, even lending us money for the medical costs, but we decided we’d had enough,” she says. “We began to look into adoption but the process in Australia meant we would be waiting up to seven years for a baby, and even then it was not guaranteed. ‘‘If we decided to adopt, it would also mean we had to completely stop IVF.” Neill says she refused to give up hope and in 2011 they recommenced IVF. “Our last round of IVF, I think I had began to stop thinking about the process so much,” she says. “I cut out the acupuncture, I ate what I wanted, I kept living my life and it was during that time I fell pregnant.” By the end of the year, she was pregnant with twins. “We went in for the 12-week scan and the doctor said, ‘There’s the heartbeat ... and there’s the other one’,” she says. “We were shocked we were having twins but elated. We had our instant family.” Months after she fell pregnant, Neill’s mother died from cancer. “It was devastating but it was bittersweet because she knew before she passed away that we were having twins,” she says. At 24 weeks, Neill was rushed to hospital. She had a shortened cervix and was made to have strict bed rest until the twins were born. “At 24 weeks their chance of survival was very slim as they were both very small and their organs were still developing,” she says. “We had to make a call – if I went into labour – whether or not they would be resuscitated.” Six weeks later, Amelie and Noah were born weighing 1.2 and 1.4 kilograms respectively. They had open heart valves and would spend more than two months in hospital. Inside their Ascot Vale home photos of the family take pride of place amid an organised collection of children’s toys. “They bring me sleep deprivation, joy and happiness every day,” Neill says with a laugh. “The first moment holding them in my arms made it all worthwhile. But it was a long, hard process that almost broke us. Almost.”

Top: Danielle Toselli with sons Lachlan (left) and Brody. Danielle and her husband tried IVF and Chinese medicine before conceiving naturally. Bottom: Leah Neill and husband Dallas Fishley went through IVF 14 times in six years. Their twins, Noah and Amelie, were born in April last year.

‘‘The strain it put on our marriage was enormous.” There was no reason for the couple’s infertility, experts dubbing it “unexplained infertility”. “I think that was one of the most frustrating parts – that we didn’t know why it was happening or how to fix it,” Neill, 36, says. She says one of the hardest parts was hearing about the pregnancies of the women around her. “Of course you are happy when your

Re: Disability rent hike anger grows (Weekly, July 31)

Tarneit MP Tim Pallas is showing political opportunism in pushing a petition against changes to fees for people in supported care (Weekly, July 31). When he was a senior minister in the previous Labor government he supported changing legislation to allow 75 per cent of a disability pension to be charged for accommodation. By contrast, the Coalition is making this change to deliver better services to those in supported care. This means those in care will be treated fairly across the supported care sector and know what services they are entitled to. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury Re: Wyndham stands firm on slow-growth commitment (Weekly, July 31):

Any growth of new housing developments will exacerbate the lack of infrastructure and services. Why not a no-growth policy? Until there are roads, public transport, local amenities, affordable housing and jobs, adding more people will simply

blow out the budget further and add to the deprivation and debt already being experienced in Melbourne’s forgotten fringe areas. Nimby (via web) Re: West’s volunteer agency needs a lifeline (Weekly, July 31):

Before inviting skilled migrants to Australia, there should be a need for them. If they end up adding to our unemployment numbers and are deprived of basic amenities through excessive growth, then our government’s federal policies are imbalanced, overly ambitious and not appropriate to our economy’s

Re: ‘No plans’ for Point Cook Road duplication (Weekly, July 31):

I have to start my day after 9am since I’m stuck in the middle of Truganina, with kilometres of traffic around me. Ross (via web) Re: Why can’t we marry? (Inside story, Weekly, July 10):

Two men can’t “marry” because marriage is a union between a husband and wife. Creating a genderless marriage is a contradiction in terms and contrary to what the

inherent meaning of the marriage institution is. The simple solution – and one that keeps traditional marriage intact and gives flexibility for “diversity” – is for gay couples to have their own distinctive unions. It doesn’t have to be religious, but a civil union. Problem solved. VivKay (via web) Re: Expansion boost for ferry bid (Weekly, July 24):

It would take Werribee and Point Cook residents a minimum of 15 minutes (30 or more in peak hour) plus the time and cost of finding a car park and the ferry ride, then the time to travel to Melbourne. Then there would be more cost for connecting transport to Melbourne itself. Imagine people coming from suburbs further afield! Yes, it will be a great tourist ferry – but that is all.

Boxer fighting to be recognised By Goya Dmytryshchak

Scott McNaughton

ALTONA-born world champion boxer ‘Dirty Diana’ Prazak will fly back to Los Angeles today to defend her World Boxing Council (WBC) super featherweight title, but says women athletes are still fighting for recognition. Prazak (pictured), who relocated from Melbourne’s west to the US after winning her first world title in 2011, says she’s the only Australian – male or female – who has beaten the world No.1 on two occasions and won their title from them. She was named July’s fighter of the month by the Women Boxing Archive Network after defeating the previously unbeaten Frida Wallberg in Sweden. “She was the WBC world champion as well as the world No. 1 and undefeated.” Prazak said. “And she’s Sweden’s hero. “[My team and I] weren’t very welcome when we got there and we won by knockout in round eight. “The unfortunate side of boxing

is that we do get hurt in the ring sometimes and she did end up in hospital and had to have brain surgery.” While in Melbourne, Prazak trained at Victoria’s first femaleowned and operated boxing gym in West Footscray, opened by champion boxer Mischa Merz. Prazak said the lack of recognition for women in sport was still an international problem. Despite being No. 1 in the world, she has never had a sponsor. “As a female, we have to overcome so much already in life and as a female athlete, we have to overcome so much more,” Prazak said. “How often do you read about women’s boxing in the paper? “A few months ago, Daniel Geale went to Germany and defeated the world champion and he was in every newspaper and on every news channel there was to see. “I did one better: I became Australia’s only ever world No. 1 yet, because I was female, no one was interested in hearing about it.”

BMX pair on top of the world BY LAURA LITTLE

For details on the Wyndham Warriors, visit wwbmxclub.com.au

MARK SMITH

A WYNDHAM BMX club is urging more people to take up the sport after two of its members tasted success at last month’s world championships. Wyndham Warriors founder Gary Morgan and son Jordan recently returned from the world championships in Auckland, where Gary finished first in the 45-and- over cruiser category. Jordan overcame a broken foot to finish fifth in the 17-24-yearold men’s competition. Gary said it was amazing that Jordan placed in the top five young men in the world, given he spent several days riding with an injury. He has been unable to ride since returning to Werribee. “It was a great achievement,’’ Gary said.

‘‘We weren’t expecting to do so well.” Gary began racing in England in 1982 and wanted to continue competing when he moved to Werribee. He founded the Warriors in 2005 after realising that there wasn’t a local club. Gary says BMX racing is a sport the whole family can enjoy. “It’s a good family thing – healthy, competitive and you can take part at any level, any age.” Gary says the sport allowed people to travel all over the world and test themselves against other riders. “BMX racing is starting to take off in Wyndham, but we are always looking for new members.” Wyndham will host the Victorian Schools Cycling Championships later this month. Wheel deal: Father-and-son duo Gary and Jordan Morgan turned heads at the world BMX championships.

MYWYNDHAM Whether in his role at Australian Rotary Health or volunteering for the Salvation Army, Hoppers Crossing’s Len Marshall loves spending time in the place he’s called home for 35 years, writes John Hazeldene What drew you to the area? My wife Lyn and I moved to Werribee in 1978, just after we got married, when the place was just another small country town on the outskirts of Melbourne. Over the years the town and our family grew, and our home got a little snug so we moved to Hoppers Crossing. Both our children still live in the area, one in Wyndham Vale, the other in Tarneit. I love the lifestyle here and it’s only a 20-25 minute drive into the city.

What’s your favourite place to grab a coffee and a bite to eat? I’m not much of a coffee person, but I often have breakfast at Raffael’s Bar & Grill Cafe on Watton Street. Their Moroccan baked eggs are a firm favourite. For dinner, we usually try a number of places on the restaurant strip and will sometimes go to the Hoppers Club on Pannam Drive or Hotel 520 on Sayers Road. SHAWN SMITS

What would you change in your neighbourhood? The area has built up a lot since we moved here in ’78, and while the community has

What we do. My wife and I are both in Rotary and spend our time doing volunteer work throughout the community. Our current pet project is the Salvation Army food van at Werribee railway station, which runs on a Friday night. Apart from that, a good network of friends, the convenience of living close enough to the city, Geelong and the beach and having all the grandchildren nearby.

Funniest moment when out and about? Offering bus drivers a barbecued sausage in exchange for a myki card. We haven’t snagged one yet, but it’s important to have a bit of fun with people when serving the food. There’s a great sense of camaraderie among those serving food at Werribee station. We try to have a good time, asking if they ‘‘want fries with that’’.

A beauty for first-home buyers This Hoppers Crossing home is packed with features, writes Mark Bunker

O

ffered for the first time, this owner-built property in popular Kingston Boulevard will tick a lot of boxes for first-home buyers. Built in the mid-to-late ’90s, the property has an undercover outdoor entertainment area, while the house has a neat floorplan with distinct front and back living zones. Past an inviting porch are doors to the tiled foyer. An open-style lounge and dining area at the front has floating floorboards and blockout curtains. Depending how the new owner

chooses to use this area, there’s potential for setting up an office. A sliding door to the kitchen allows for a ‘‘zoned living aspect’’ – it delineates the front living zone from the back meals area and adjoining rumpus room. The kitchen has a Euro electric oven, Simpson gas cooktop with four elements, splitsystem and venetian blinds. A small corridor links to two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and block-out blinds with awnings. The main bedroom is at the front of the

house and has a ceiling fan, walk-in wardrobe and en suite. There are sliding doors to a spacious pergola with extended concrete paving. It’s fully enclosed by shade cloth. The north-facing backyard is great for kids and pets, and has an enclosed vegie patch, dog kennel, clothesline and plenty of room for play equipment and a pool. A paved offstreet parking bay is an extension of the wide concreted driveway, allowing for plenty of off-street parking.

f Leigh Bretag needs help with the finishing touches on his new home at Kingsford, he can call on his brother Glenn, who has bought the block next door. The brothers took an instant liking to homesites in the popular Peet community in Point Cook. Younger brother Leigh and his wife Cathleen were the first to sign up. It was the family-friendly atmosphere that convinced them Kingsford was a good fit. “We’d been renting for a while and decided it was time to put our money into our own piece of Australia,” Leigh said. “We were looking

for the right place to build our new home, and Kingsford felt right.” The couple have a young son who is keen to enjoy the outdoor life at Kingsford. “We like the parks and open space,” Leigh said. “There’s plenty of room for kids to run and play, and the park behind us is fantastic. It’s definitely a good place to raise a family and whenever we meet people there, they always seem to have kids.” The Bretag family hope to start building a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with

Boutique Homes in the spring. The brothers’ homesites are close to the soon-to-be completed Hargrave Park and the community’s $1 million landmark, Kingsford Common, with its 30 metre flying fox, climbing frame and barbecue facilities. Minutes from the Point Cook town centre and 24 kilometres from the CBD, Kingsford offers homebuyers lifestyle and location. More than 900 residents already call Kingsford home and the community is expected to grow to 1500 people occupying 545 households.

Extreme A fund-raiser The fight against breast cancer has a new champion, writes Laura Little

Michael Copp

Ride on: Joseph Di Bennardo will raise funds for a breast cancer charity through runs, a ride and a climb to Mount Everest’s base camp.

Werribee man will push his mind and body to the limit in charity runs, bike rides and a climb to the base camp at Mount Everest to raise money for breast cancer research. Joseph Di Bennardo will start his fundraising campaign in Sydney this Sunday with a 14-kilometre run through the CBD to Bondi Beach. On October 13, he will run the Melbourne Marathon. Seven days later he will jump on his bicycle and ride 250 kilometres around Port Philip Bay in Around the Bay in a Day, before a 19-day trek to Mount Everest base camp in January. Di Bennardo says he decided to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation after watching relatives battle breast cancer. He hopes to raise $5000. Di Bennardo has previously completed a half marathon in Prague and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and Machu Picchu. But he says competing in four gruelling exercises in five months will be the hardest thing he has had to do. Di Bennardo says he has always been a keen runner and an advocate of healthy living. “I want to give back to the community any way I can.” To donate, visit melbournemarathon2013. gofundraise.com.au/page/seaforsunrise

pocalyptic comedy is in vogue, with this British ensemble piece coming hot on the heels of a not-dissimilar effort from Seth Rogen. Both films are very funny, even if they’re thoroughly male affairs. To be fair, The World’s End is, explicitly, a film about middle-aged men. For perma-teen Gary King (Simon Pegg), the world ended when he was 17. At 40, he’s driving the same car, listening to the same music and wearing the same Doc Martens boots. Pegg does well to imbue a potentially unlikeable character with nerdish charm and a few potent notes of familiarity. In an attempt to relive the best night of his life, King rounds up his old chums for a hometown

pub crawl. Past resentments quickly bubble up. As we settle in for a tale of lost youth and rekindled romance, King discovers the town has been replaced by robots. The two previous films in this loose trilogy from Pegg and director Edgar Wright have found fun playing with genre. Shaun of the Dead was part romantic comedy and part zombie horror. Hot Fuzz was part Midsomer Murders, part Bad Boys. Here, the genre twist happens reasonably late. Thankfully, the character stuff remains well-crafted, with Pegg and Wright using their ridiculous premise to expose poignant truths about identity, friendship and regret. Steeped in ’90s music and iconography, The World’s End at once inspires nostalgia and warns against it – an intelligent, nuanced take on apocalypse comedy with energetic physical comedy.

one of the little gems that has come to the fore. There’s a lot of old-vine riesling around Tasmania. We know from regions such as the Mosel in Germany, which is actually a little colder than Tasmania, that you can actually do some pretty good things.” Dredge suggests people became impatient with grapes such as cabernet because pinot noir is a more consistent vineyard performer. “You’ve got to accept the fact that you’re going to lose a couple of vintages out of every 10, so there is risk,” he says. “On the east coast and little pockets of the Derwent and Coal River valleys, you get a decent amount of sunlight and heat throughout the summer, so you can ripen these varieties successfully.” Dredge says the early winemakers soon realised many Tasmanian sites were better suited to table wines. “Then there’s soil types. The Derwent and Coal River valleys are alluvial and the east coast is a big volcanic dolerite upsurge,” he says. Look out for varieties such as pinot gris, riesling and shiraz grown on Tasmania’s alluvial spine, while fine examples of cabernet sauvignon and its friends from Bordeaux – merlot and cabernet franc – are found on the east coast.

ention Tasmania in wine circles and the first words people utter will be pinot noir and chardonnay. These are grapes that thrive in the margins, and Tasmania’s cold climate is perfect for producing still and sparkling wines from them. Their star is certain to burn brighter as young vines age. But mentioning only these grapes does a disservice to varieties that are being championed by producers who see potential for other grapes to thrive. Unlike Victoria, which has nearly 20 wine regions, the whole island is a single region – and a diverse range of soil types and microclimates means that many grapes thrive. Early Tasmanian vineyards – we’re talking the 1970s – were planted with grapes such as cabernet and riesling, while the first pinot noir and chardonnay grapes were planted with sparkling wine production in mind. “There was a big push for cabernet in the ’70s and ’80s, but you don’t see many of them around now,” says Bay of Fires winemaker Peter Dredge. “Early on everyone was in a trial period and people planted a little bit of everything and, sooner or later, realised what worked in those areas. Pinot and chardonnay have performed and so has riesling – it’s

Gearbox grumble One of the great cars could be greater, writes Rod Easdown

E

lectronic manual gearboxes are becoming common and, with emission laws tightening, they’ll get more so. Volkswagen’s DSG, which is also used in Audis and Skodas, is one of the best, but that’s not saying a lot. These things can be frustrating to drive and they’re expensive to service. I’ll take a conventional auto any day. Electronic manual gearboxes have flat spots, especially on take-off and most notably in reverse, that can be anything from annoying to downright enraging. I’m sure the only reason people buy them is because it’s the only way to get a lot of cars without a clutch pedal. Volkswagens for example. The other frustrating fuel-saver lately is auto stop/start, where the engine stops when the car does, restarting when the brake is released. Some are fast enough to be almost seamless. Some aren’t. Now combine auto stop/start with an electronic manual. The delay on take-off is even longer. But this is not the worst bit. By the

time the engine fires and the clutch engages, your foot has been on the accelerator long enough to build up a few revs so there’s a sharp thump of acceleration that jolts through the car. It’s worse if you’re hurrying. But even when you’re not it’s always there, noticeable enough for passengers to comment. So you either amble off the lights or jump. I can’t say how maddening this is in a performance car such as Audi’s S6. If you want to get off the line smoothly, you can’t tap into its massive performance. And the DSG is the only gearbox available. So in a car that’s all about satisfying, highperformance driving, you get a gearbox that’s annoying and finicky off the mark. It’s exasperating because otherwise the S6 is one of the world’s great touring cars. It’s fast, responsive and grips like a limpet. And even though the suspension is tight, ride quality is surprisingly compliant. Part of this is down to brilliant seating

that’s beautifully supportive without being uncompromisingly Teutonic. For a big car, the Audi handles with remarkable agility and finesse, and makes for very quick journey times. It won’t take you long to discover that the cruise control automatically disengages when cornering forces exceed a certain limit because that limit is relatively easy to reach. Even when tootling around the city, the S6 is entirely acceptable. I just wish it came with a full manual.

Werribee faces devil of a job By Lance Jenkinson

SCOREBOARD

SHAWN SMITS

WERRIBEE Devils were almost untouchable in the Big V basketball women’s division 2 regular season, earning the minor premiership with a 18-2 record, with one of those losses coming when the team’s ‘‘big three’’ were rested. That record became irrelevant when the play-offs began on Saturday night, with the Devils on the receiving end of a 73-65 defeat to fourth-ranked Keilor Thunder to trail in the best-of-three semi-final series. Devils coach Lloyd Klaman was disappointed – not at losing to a Thunder team he respects, but because his side diverted from what made it so good in the regular rounds. “I just don’t think we had the contributors in that game like we’ve had all year,” he said. Lisa Troyahn has a right to be angry with her teammates. The star produced a stellar game with 21 points and 20 rebounds – a tally that should never be in a losing team.

“Our other bigs didn’t help her out at all – we left her on her own,” Klaman said. “She held down the fort all game long ... we’ve got to look at supporting her a lot better.” With a lack of production off the bench, the big three of Troyahn, Emma Coyne and Elisha Burnette were forced to log many minutes. Morgan Owen, with 12 points, was the only effective Devil off the pine. The Thunder beat the Devils at their own game, backing up their own dynamic duo of Jodi Impey and Jessica Francke with a support cast that turned the game in their favour in the second period. With the Devils leading by as many as nine, it was unheralded teenager Amy Smith, daughter of former Melbourne AFL footballer Shaun Smith, and sharpshooting Sally Braybon who were unlikely heroes for the Thunder. Games two and three – the latter if needed – will be at the Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

WERRIBEE Districts coughed up a 15-point three-quarter time lead to lose by five points to Ajax in Victorian Amateur Football Association premier B at Soldiers Reserve on Saturday. The Tigers were in command for the opening three quarters on the back of good work from Aaron Taylor, Conor Purton and Travis Dean, but failed to seal the deal. They would be left to rue inaccurate kicking in the last quarter, converting just two of seven scoring shots. Three games and a hefty percentage away from survival, the young Tigers will be relegated from the VAFA’s second tier, most likely with the wooden spoon. In division 3, Old Westbourne Grammarians came close to breaking their duck in the battle of the bottom two. The Warriors went down to South Mornington by seven points after scores were level at threequarter time at Citation Oval. The Warriors remain winless and will finish with the wooden spoon. Point Cook had a bye in division 4, but managed to keep hold of fourth spot. The Bulldogs will host third-last Mount Lilydale at Saltwater Reserve on Saturday. — Lance Jenkinson

Falcons delight in unlikely title By Lance Jenkinson

back as defending champions – a tag that seems to sit well with them. They were supposed to struggle in the absences of goalshooter Kathleen Knott and goalkeeper Peta Fay. Knott missed the season with a knee injury, while Fay was on maternity leavel. As well, the Falcons were hit hard by the representative season. Yet the longer the season wore on the stronger they seemed to get. “That’s probably the best final for me because we overcame a lot of obstacles across the season,” said Lind of this year’s title. The Falcons settled better, with goaler Julia Knott hammering in the opening three goals, but that lead would be erased by quarter time. The “window” of opportunity, as Lind put it, came for the Falcons with 10 minutes to go. With scores locked at 35 apiece, they strung together three consecutive goals on the back of a Chloe Watson interception.

Extra mile: City West Falcons goalshooter Julia Knott displays a desperate determination.

Michael Copp

CITY West has completed an improbable back-to-back title mission in the Victorian Netball League championship. The Falcons have been a powerhouse of the state’s top netball league since its formation five years ago. They have won nine of a possible 15 premierships across all three grades. Falcons coach Marg Lind rates Wednesday night’s 44-41 win over Peninsula Waves in the championship grand final at the State Netball and Hockey Centre as the best of the lot. “To be honest, I think at the start of the season, we didn’t think we’d be here,” she said. “As we went further and further along, I thought we gained momentum and got better as a unit, so we changed our opinion of what we were capable of.” The Falcons had a target on their

Centurions fall short WERRIBEE Centrals stumbled in their battle to claim third place in the Geelong and District Football League Smiths Holden Cup. The Centurions had to beat East Geelong in the third-versusfourth bout at Galvin Park on Saturday to remain in the double chance hunt. They came up short by 20 points. Phillip Jones’ form continued for the Centurions with a third best-on-ground performance in six matches. Player-coach Luke Phipps also continued his good run. The Centurions sit on 36 points, ahead of four teams on 32, but have a chance to clinch their spot on the road against cellardweller Inverleigh on Saturday. Meanwhile, Roland Beck brought up 300 games for the Centurions in the reserves’ eightpoint win over East Geelong on Saturday. It was a fine effort, considering Beck has also played with Lara in a bid to pursue a higher level of football.

Jets control attack zone, destiny

Falcons act out the rage

By Lance Jenkinson

WYNDHAMVALE has issued a ‘remember us’ statement to the Western Region Football League division 2 with a 63-point win over Sunshine Heights at Ainsworth Reserve on Saturday. The Falcons were smarting after their embarrassing 110point loss to Parkside seven days earlier and took all their anger out on the Heights. Luke Dennerley’s team was switched on from the get-go, opening up a 20-point break by quarter time and maintaining the rage in a consistent four-quarter performance. The Falcons had 10 individual goalkickers, including four to Daniel Bunworth, while Aidan Boland, Chris Klein-Breteler and Devan Ellis were among the best players. These two sides will likely meet again in the elimination final in a fortnight so it will be the Falcons with a considerable psychological edge. Glenorden released a powerful reminder of its intent with an 88-point thrashing of contenders Manor Lakes in a night game at Howqua Reserve. With a last-round encounter against lowly North Sunshine, you’d suspect the Hawks have safeguarded the minor premiership and a week-one finals rest in Nick Diker’s second year in charge. The Yze brothers – century goalkickers Damien (eight goals) and midfielder Adem (six) – shared 14 goals between them, while Julian Storey was a big presence in a best-on-ground showing. Storm full forward Ty Priest was kept to one goal, taking his season’s tally to 93. The Storm hold onto their berth in the top three and to double-chance riches due to their superior percentage over fourth-placed Wyndhamvale. Sanctuary Lakes had a sevengoal loss to Braybrook in the last home game of their first season. In division 1, Hoppers Crossing was blown away in the last quarter of a 34-point loss to Albion at Hogans Road Oval on Saturday. The Warriors held leads at quarter- and half-time before trailing by just two points at the last change. Albion stepped up a gear with a five-goal-to-zip last term to pick up its fourth win of the season, while the Warriors all but dropped out of the finals race.

THE Western Jets have assumed control of their own destiny in their quest for a TAC Cup top-four finish. The Jets grabbed fourth spot on the ladder with a comfortable 35-point win over Oakleigh Chargers at Warrawee Park on Saturday morning. “The good thing is now if we win our remaining two games, we’ll keep that top four position,” Jets coach Torin Baker told the Weekly. “It’s nice to have that in your control.” The Jets had the bulk of possession inside their forward 50. Turning that time in the forward

half into scores would prove harder given the blustery conditions and the steadfast Chargers’ defending. Baker was thrilled with the pressure applied by his team to keep the ball in the attacking zone. “We certainly controlled the game for most of the day,” Baker said. “Any footy that did go outside the forward 50, went back in and that was through our defenders positioning themselves well and winning some one-on-ones as well.” James Sicily has impressed this year with his versatility. The Vic Metro representative has played back, forward and through the midfield. Set a fresh task as an

inside midfielder, he came through with flying colours. “We’ve thrown him another challenge and asked him to play as an inside midfielder onball for the last couple of matches,” Baker said. “He hasn’t played a lot there so we’re just sort of teaching him to play that area. ‘‘He got better last week and his game this week was outstanding.” Josh MacDonald made a good first impression with the Jets. The forward has spent most of the season with the all-conquering Glenorden seniors in the WRFL, but he was identified as a player with potential at a recent multicultural

exhibition game after making no appearances as a Jets-listed player earlier in the season. “He’s quite talented; he was able to kick a couple of goals and put on a fair bit of pressure,” Baker said. Daniel O’Leary’s desperation at the stoppages was crucial, while Braden Ferrari presented well at centre halfforward for two goals. The TAC Cup takes a week off for a player development program before the Jets return to the field on August 17 for an away game against Bendigo Pioneers. For the sports scoreboard, turn to page 40.

Bees abuzz with 6-1 win WERRIBEE City is in hot pursuit of Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 summit sitters Heidelberg United. The Bees stepped up their chase for first place with a 6-1 annihilation of the Fawkner Blues at the Club Italia Sporting Club on Sunday. Leigh Minopoulos starred for the Bees with four goals, while Daniel Sweeney knocked in a double in the rout. Not only did the Bees move to within two points of the league leaders, they picked up a valuable +5 in goal difference after coming back from a goal down in the first half to win with the last six goals of the match. The Bees will get a chance to move into first place when they host Heidelberg in one of the most anticipated matches of the season at Galvin Park on Sunday. Hoppers Crossing upset promotion hopeful Geelong Rangers 4-3 in a thrilling encounter at Myers Reserve. Kevin Smart scored a hat-trick for the Reds in a game that had them moving four points clear of the relegation zone. The goals were raining down in state league 5, too. Truganina Hornets were victorious 5-1 over Balmoral with in-form Musa Kamara firing in a hat-trick. Point Cook enjoyed a 6-2 win over Keilor Wolves after a hat-trick to Jamie Early. Both Kamara and Early have scored six goals in their past three matches.

Tiger ’93 flag party resumes

BY DANIEL PAPROTH WERRIBEE was well in control of the 1993 VFA grand final against Port Melbourne in the early stages of the last quarter, but Frank Lesiputty was in no mood for premature celebrations. The resolute centre half-back knew the pain of losing a grand final, having been part of the Werribee outfit that lost to Dandenong by nine points in 1991. So when 19-year-old teammate Peter Williams began to let his excitement get the better of him, Lesiputty was having none of it. “I barrelled him,” says Lesiputty with a laugh. “Because I had lost in ’91, I was so determined to win and Peter started laughing and enjoying it. So I told him, ‘Pull your head in and get on your man’.” Williams, now a teacher, confirms the story. “Early in the last quarter I went over to him to celebrate and he almost pushed me down on to the ground,” he says. Soon after, both were celebrating as Werribee won its first – and so far only – senior premiership. The Tigers went into the game as underdogs but came away with a 10.10 (70) to 4.4 (28) win. This Saturday night Werribee is holding a 20th anniversary for the team, and Sunday is past players’ day when the champions of old will watch as the modern-day Tigers take on – you guessed it – Port Melbourne.

The 1993 grand final is often remembered for its dramatic finish – with the siren yet to sound, crowd members invaded Princes Park as Werribee and Port Melbourne players brawled. Tigers forward Jack Aziz was king-hit and celebrated with a throbbing black eye when the ground was cleared and the siren was sounded. Lesiputty says tensions were brewing throughout the afternoon – six players were reported, which worked in the Tigers’ favour. “I reckon we kept our nerve for the afternoon whereas they went the knuckle and lost their focus,” he says.

But right from the start of the day he and his teammates were confident. Williams recalls it was raining on the morning of the game. “I thought we were in with a big chance,” he says. “We had a lot of hard-at-it, in-andunder type of players and the ball was going to be on the ground a fair bit.” Lesiputty, who broke with his tradition and carried a ball on to the ground in the warm-up, agrees. “I just felt the weather would favour us,” he says. “I knew we were harder at it and I was super-confident without being over-confident.” Neil Branch’s match report in the Werribee Banner (pictured left) lauded the Tigers, led by skipper Donald McDonald (pictured at top, holding cup) for their dominance, desperation and unrelenting attack. According to Williams, the celebrations went on for weeks. “It was fantastic,” he says. “The club was 30 years old and hadn’t tasted success, so it just added the extra icing on the cake and made the celebrations a lot sweeter.” Lesiputty, who played after seven injections in his shoulder due to copping a dislocation in the preliminary final against Springvale, says the celebrations were “unbelievable”. “We were just such a tightknit group and we socialised together all throughout the year,” he says. “Hopefully, the club can win another one this year and we can all share a beer with the new boys.”

As someone who played more than 300 games at a club that only has one Premiership in the trophy cabinet, I know only too well the pressure players and coaches feel to achieve the ultimate. I now find myself coaching at a club with just one Premiership cup, and this weekend the players, officials and everyone involved in the 1993 Premiership, will gather at Avalon Airport Oval to share their memories of that great achievement. I am envious both as a player and a coach. I have asked several of those involved to share their thoughts on the day. David Allday (winner of the Norm Goss Medal as Best on Ground) SW: How does it feel to be part of the history of the club? DA: It’s a bit humbling I guess when you consider all the people that have put so much time and effort into the club and probably deserved more accolades. You know, the people that built the team and created all the things necessary to win a Premiership. To have been able to play in that side was obviously an honour. I just wish another team would come up and win a Premiership, to take that pressure off. Cameron Wright (Ex Footscray) SW: Was there something special about 1993? CW: We played for Donald (McDonald) that year and the subsequent years after that. He was a bloke that you wanted to play for. I had my moments with Donald, as most players would have, but the good thing about Donald is, you bury the hatchet that night. He wouldn’t distance himself at all. You’d sort it out in the rooms after the game, have a beer, get on with it mate. Peter Williams (youngest player in the premiership side) SW: When did you think you had it won? PW: One of my vivid memories of the day, it was early in the last quarter, and I thought, you know, we were 6-7 goals up, they didn’t look like it (winning) and I thought: It’s time to start celebrating. I just remember turning to Frank Lesiputty, and sort of running up to him, and he almost knocked me over. I remember him just banging me on the chest, and just going … Concentrate! Greg Welsh (1993 General Manager also former President of the club) SW: How were the after game celebrations? GW: It was fantastic back at the Centenary Hall, it was the best night of my life. It was great. I got to call out all the names and introduce them, presented the cup to the Werribee people, we made it that way, you know, it was for Werribee. We didn’t hog it to the footballers or the football club or anything like that. It was great that we had Centenary Hall, still being a community hall at that stage. I don’t know how many people were there but it was packed, and we made sure we let them all know it was for all of Werribee and it was a fantastic night. SW: One thing I do want to share with the 1993 group this week is that feeling of beating Port Melbourne. See you at the game on Sunday. A proud sponsor of the Werribee Football Club
