Shire has a tip for taxi service

COVER: Bimbadeen Heights netballers Ebany, Georgia, Olivia and Isabelle are thrilled the Pinks Reserve netball centre in Kilsyth will get more funding. Story on page 6. Picture: Rob Carew

BY CLAIRE THWAITES MORE accessible taxi services are needed in the Yarra Ranges for people with disabilities — that’s the verdict of Yarra Ranges Council as it weighs into the taxi industry inquiry. A draft report released earlier this year into the state of Melbourne’s taxi industry has found a lack of wheelchair-friendly taxi services. The report by Professor Allan Fels stated that people requiring such taxis had waiting times exceeding three hours, that drivers were discourteous, and took circuitous routes when a passenger couldn’t object.

‘You don’t know what you are going to get and what sort of experience the drivers have in dealing with disabled people.’

— Cliff Wise The report recommended creating one central Greater Melbourne booking service for wheelchair taxis — a move Yarra Ranges councillors support. At a meeting last week, the council finalised its submission to the inquiry, agreeing in principle to a central booking service but noting that ‘‘minimum wait times and a passengerfriendly way to book a wheelchair taxi in advance need to be addressed, as they appear to have been overlooked’’. Montrose resident Cliff Wise, a member of the new Yarra Ranges disability advisory committee, said he relied heavily on wheelchair taxis himself. He said the main challenge was getting a reliable driver to arrive at the booked time, as wait times could be ‘‘very, very long’’. Mr Wise believes drivers gave preference to taking able-bodied people for higher fares and putting off the wheelchair-access booking. He said providing central locations around

Long wait: Montrose resident Cliff Wise says long waits for wheelchair-accessible taxis are a frequent occurrence. Picture: Ted Kloszynski Disability advisory committee chairman Cr Len Cox said the council was already looking at ways to better allocate existing taxi resources, such as through shared trips. ‘‘This option would need to be explored further with the taxi industry working with disability service providers on a trial.’’ Cr Cox said the council also supported recommendations to overlap country and metropolitan taxi zones as this could allow for more taxi services to be available. Public submissions to the inquiry have now closed.

the shire where wheelchair users could go and know they could get a taxi would be a good idea. ‘‘We need more wheelchair-only taxis.’’ Issues involved cabs arriving only to discover they did not have the proper internal fixtures for a wheelchair. ‘‘You don’t know what you’re going to get and what sort of experience the drivers have in dealing with disabled people.’’ The report recommends that all drivers of wheelchair taxis undertake necessary training. The council suggested training should be subsidised to encourage more drivers to take part.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those businesses and residents who bought a ticket. I was able to present a cheque for more than $36,000 to Monkami as a result of the proceeds from the raffle and it was my proudest moment in the 31⁄2 years I have been on Maroondah Council.

ANTI-logging protesters claim to have footage of a violent stand-off last week between loggers and environmental activists at the Toolangi State Forest near Healesville. The footage allegedly involves timber workers punching, kicking and pushing the protesters, who marched onto a restricted zone at 5.45am last Wednesday. The footage is in the hands of anti-logging group MyEnvironment. Spokeswoman Sarah Rees said the group had struck a deal with a broadcast media outlet to screen the footage but MyEnvironment would be making it available online early this week. Ms Rees said the footage refuted claims by pro-logging group Friends of Forestry, who alleged in a media release last week that ‘‘five masked men stormed onto an official workplace threatening timber workers’ safety [and] stopping work’’. She said the footage proved the allegations were ‘‘completely untrue and provocative’’ and showed the activists themselves being ‘‘brutally assaulted’’. Friends of Forestry has alleged three drivers were on the harvesting coupe when the protesters

shone torches and threatened them before being ushered from the site. ‘‘One driver was loading a truck and had a 500-kilogram-plus log high up in the air when the masked men invaded our workplace,’’ said Brendan Roberts, one of the drivers. ‘‘To be honest, it was really frightening as it was dark. There were five masked men and we had no idea whether they had weapons or what they were going to do.’’ In a media release sent out last Wednesday afternoon, the Victorian Association of Forest Industries condemned the actions of the protesters. Ms Rees said the allegations were ‘‘laughable’’. ‘‘It was four degrees, they had neck warmers on, not masks. What I saw them [the loggers] do to the activists in the footage is just scary. [Friends of Forestry] are purporting misleading information,’’ she said. Healesville’s police Sergeant Wayne Williams said they were working with the Lilydale police to investigate two incidents last Wednesday. ‘‘We have two conflicting stories and that’s the basis of our investigations at the moment.’’

Netball centre nets $2.9m cash top-up BY CLAIRE THWAITES YARRA Ranges Council has approved an extra $2.9 million for the Pinks Reserve Netball Facility in Kilsyth. Councillors voted for the extra funding at a council meeting last week, bringing the total cost of the project to $5.9 million. This includes $500,000 in state government funding and another $2.5 million of council funding approved in 2010. The project will include 12 outdoor courts, lighting on seven courts, landscaping and a new sports pavilion. The increased costs arose from the need to create additional car parking and traffic improvements, including traffic signals at the entrance on Liverpool Road. There will be 269 parking spaces. Lilydale and Yarra Ranges Netball Association president Toni Madden said it had been a long time coming and everyone was keen for the works to begin. ‘‘I’m going to be there when they turn that first

sod with a bottle of champagne in hand ready to celebrate!’’ She said the association had 1900 members and its current 10-court facility in Mooroolbark was not adequate. ‘‘Car parking’s just a nightmare at the moment.’’ She said ideally the new centre would be ready for the 2013 spring season. ‘‘It’s an exciting time. The talk has been talked. Now it’s time for the walk. Onwards and upwards.’’ Cr Len Cox said the Kilsyth development was one of the most exciting projects in the shire at the moment. ‘‘I think it will be a real asset to the area. Already home to a regional basketball stadium, Kilsyth will now be the regional hub for netball too.’’ Cr Terry Avery admitted the project had been drawn out but now there was ‘‘light at the end of the tunnel’’. In addition to the 12 outdoor courts, netballers will also have access to the two indoor courts already on site.

DIY dangers: a warning about asbestos BY DANIEL TRAN and CLAIRE THWAITES LIVES are being put in danger because homes are not being tested for asbestos before renovations begin, industry sources have warned. The Asbestos Contractors Group says people face serious disease, and even death, because there are no laws making it mandatory for homeowners to conduct a hazardous materials audit before they start work. The group says the absence of auditing heightens the risk of previously unknown quantities of asbestos being disturbed. ‘‘Unfortunately, tradespeople and, quite often, domestic homeowners are being exposed to asbestos when doing their own renovations, simply because they don’t know it’s there or what it looks like,’’ group spokesman Pat Preston said. ‘‘There’s no legislation like there is in the general workplaces for an asbestos audit to be carried out.’’ Ringwood asbestos removalist A Plus Building Solutions says residents are at risk of finding asbestos in their backyard. A Plus director Kamil Zajac says the company’s 24-hour emergency line gets numerous calls. ‘‘A lot of them are initiated by tradies or homeowners who give us a call and say, ‘My

Present danger: Kamil Zajac from A Plus Building Solutions says asbestos in residential properties is going unnoticed by renovators and tradespeople.

tos were common in the building industry. The Weekly asked Eastern Health how many asbestos-related illnesses had been treated at

Maroondah Hospital in the past two years but was told no specific data regarding asbestos was available. Eastern Health’s director of respiratory medicine Professor Francis Thien says asbestosrelated illness can range from benign pleural plaques to asbestosis (lung fibrosis) to mesothelioma (cancer). A Safe Work Australia report found that 660 cases of mesothelioma were diagnosed in Australia in 2007. In the same year, 551 people died of asbestosrelated diseases. In 2010-11, WorkSafe was notified of 7275 jobs carried out by asbestos removalists across the state, including work done at domestic properties and workplaces. A Yarra Ranges based asbestos removalist, who did not want to be named, said a lot of people know they should test their site — especially on properties older than 1982 — but the cost turns them off. He said he was once called out to a school in Ringwood because someone had dumped asbestos next to the campus. ‘‘It was wrapped in plastic — so they knew it was something dangerous, but they didn’t seem to care.’’

An upfront message on breast cancer BY CLAIRE THWAITES THESE sisters really are doing it for themselves. Silvan resident Sue Calder and her sisters, Kim Pinker and Catherine Blackwell, are the creators of the Melbourne Breast Cancer Bra Walk fundraiser, now in its second year. Last year, there were 300 participants and more than $18,000 raised at the inaugural 2.5 kilometre bra walk. This year they are hoping it will be even bigger and better, with all proceeds raised from the event going to the Maroondah Breast Clinic and the Yarra Valley Ladies in Pink breast cancer support group. The sisters came up with the fund-raising idea after Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was just 31 years old, back in 2007. She attended the Maroondah clinic during her treatment. Ms Calder, ‘‘the organised one of the bunch’’, took charge of planning the event from scratch. ‘‘It’s a lot of hard work but due to the success of the first year we decided to do it again,’’ she said. ‘‘This year we want to branch out and support not just women with breast cancer but men too. We want to support the community groups that

Picture: Lucy Di Paolo volunteer their time in helping others in need — groups that help women and men directly with dealing with cancer, groups that don’t have the

opportunity to receive support where needed compared with the larger organisations.’’ Participants are encouraged to wear pink or

blue and to wear their bras on the outside. Christine Gray of the Maroondah Breast Clinic said the fund-raising money would go towards some items on their wish list, including an impedimed machine that can screen patients who have had breast cancer surgery for lymphoedema (a chronic swelling in part of the body that occurs because of a build-up of fluid in the body’s tissues). ‘‘To be the recipient of funds means an enormous amount to us,’’ Ms Gray said. ‘‘Just that people would take the time and effort to fund-raise on our behalf is extraordinary. This is just the most amazing relationship to have from somebody like Kim who has a personal experience and understands how much it means to get the money.’’ Sponsorship from businesses for the walk are still being sought.

Further down the assembly line hen you’ve found a good spot, stay on it. That’s what some manufacturers are thinking about as they set up base in the outer east and south-east. With the region expanding at a rate of knots, innovative workplaces are creating jobs, cutting commutes and keeping our best and brightest closer to home. One Bayswater company is putting the manufacturing industry on the cutting edge with its vital role in the Joint Strike Fighter project. Rosebank Engineering has facilities at Royal Australian Air Force bases in NSW and Queensland but chose Bayswater as an affordable place for its headquarters. The company has been awarded the contract to manufacture and repair aircraft landing gear and components for actuator systems — which it designed, created, tested and assembled — for at least the next 15 years. Rosebank has a unique collection of sophisticated equipment for precision machining — down to the width of a human hair — parts that can withstand the high speeds, temperature extremes and G forces of modern aeronautical performance. ‘‘There are lots of people who can do parts of what we can do, but no one can do everything we can under the one roof,’’ says head of business development and sales David Wallace. Elsewhere in Bayswater, independent developer Wicked Witch Software has put its stamp on AFL Wii, the official video game version. The game was not created by a huge team at AFL headquarters in Docklands but by the Wicked Witch team.

Innovative manufacturers — and the jobs they create — have moved to the eastern and south-eastern suburbs. JAMES TAYLOR finds out why. Chief executive Daniel Visser says IT businesses can thrive in the city’s outer limits. ‘‘With modern communication we are able to deal with companies all around the world in multiple time zones very easily from our desks, so there’s no real problem with being outside of Melbourne. Most of the the guys who work here live nearby too. ‘‘I do travel into the CBD once or twice a fortnight for meetings. However, outside of peakhour traffic, it only takes about half an hour and that’s all I really notice.’’ Born and raised in the outer east, Mr Visser moved to the city to work on video games. ‘‘It made sense to return to Bayswater when I wanted to establish my own studio with some friends who I’d gone to school with, as they also lived in the area. ‘‘When speaking to clients on the phone I still get asked where I am, as they’re surprised to hear birds in the background. I tell them I am in sunny Bayswater, of course. Where else?’’ Plans are on to bolster manufacturing further down in the south-east, with the state government encouraging companies to set up outside the CBD. Its south-east growth corridor plan, released in June, forecasts 2370 hectares of industrial land and 1290 hectares of business land in three new employment precincts. The largest of these will be built south of the Pakenham Bypass and stretch from Soldiers

August 21, 2012

Road in Berwick to Koo Wee Rup Road in Pakenham. The Growth Areas Authority says the precinct has good freight and public transport connections, and will be an attractive location

‘When speaking to clients on the phone I still get asked where I am, as they’re surprised to hear birds in the background. I tell them I am in sunny Bayswater, of course. Where else?’ — Daniel Visser for a wide range of advanced manufacturing and commercial enterprises. Automotive manufacturer Injectronics, set up in Dandenong in the 1980s, tapped into a growing trade in selling to workshops in the USA and Europe. The company developed a reputation as the go-to business for fuel injection problems and, 10 years ago, wanted to relocate. Founder Rex Vandenberg consulted his staff, who thought that moving one suburb over to

Hallam would be good for them and the business. ‘‘We were planning on a move, and we said to the staff, ‘This is what we’re thinking of. What do you think?’. For them, Hallam was a whole lot nicer than being on the other side of Dandenong,’’ he says. Figures released last week show Victoria will need 180,000 extra jobs in the next five years and the region will play a big role in achieving that target. Manufacturing, Exports and Trade Minister Richard Dalla-Riva says the south-east corridor — covering Dandenong, the Casey-Cardinia employment area and the Port of Hastings — is one of Australia’s most economically significant regions. ‘‘This corridor has the greatest concentration of jobs outside Melbourne’s CBD and is a key area for the manufacturing industry. ‘‘Manufacturing hubs in suburban Melbourne and regional Victoria provide local jobs, and enable these businesses to collaborate, establish business-to-business networks, and pursue new business and market opportunities, such as export markets.’’ Mr Vandenberg initially considered moving closer to an airport but was happy with settling in the south-east. ‘‘Our staff live in places like Berwick and Cranbourne, so they’re able to get to work and get home more easily. If we were a little bit further out, then we might have trouble with couriers. ‘‘But with the freeways and highways here, we can basically get anything anywhere in Australia overnight. Yes, Hallam is in the outer eastern suburbs, but it’s still very connected.’’


TIMEOUT

A downpour of artistic ideas She has been painting for 10 years, four of which have been in a professional capacity. Spinks said Melbourne Rain was her first major exhibition for 2012 and she was thrilled to share these works with the public. ‘‘I always get really nervous before a show but I know I have created a good body of work and I am excited to share it with people. ‘‘I think people will definitely be uplifted by this exhibition.’’ Megan Rowland, cultural development officer at Red Earth, encourages art lovers to take a look at the works. ‘‘The depth and detail of Annette’s work cannot be captured in photos — the paintings need to be seen to really appreciate their texture and use of colour.’’

BY CLAIRE THWAITES Melbourne winter can often get you down. But shivering through the cold nights and trudging through the puddles is exactly what has inspired artist Annette Spinks in her latest exhibition Melbourne Rain. Spinks says the exhibition, which is coming to Red Earth Gallery in Mooroolbark this month, was inspired by ‘‘Victoria’s glorious wet weather and the movement and patterns that the rain creates’’. She works with resin and acrylic to create multiple layers and textures on her pieces and says the resin has a watery appearance that was perfect for this exhibition. ‘‘The idea came about mainly because it has been so wet, but also because I could see a lot of beauty in the rain, like the light coming through,’’ she says. ‘‘I travel a lot and so took inspiration from all different areas. But I think these paintings will complement the Red Earth Gallery.’’ Spinks, a former Belgrave South resident, held two exhibitions last year at The SmartArtz Gallery in South Melbourne and The Blue Dog Gallery in Beaumaris.

Would you like to be another one of our SOLD stories? Your team are simply the best and I will have no hesitation sending clients your way. Thanks for a great result in what was a very difficult decision to put my home to market after living here since 1969. You treated me as part of the family and guided me through the process. Even after an issue with the building and pest you still saved the day. Thanks again…Bev.

The team at the Professionals lived up to their names during the time they had my house for sale. They were courteous and pleasant to work with and they found a lovely family to buy my home. I was kept informed of the progress at all times and they almost achieved the result I needed. They are a hard working bunch and have my thanks. Anni looked who after the sale for me did a great job. I am more than happy to recommend them to anyone that is considering selling. Great team and great value. Ann

Sell with Professionals. You’ll be glad you did! We just wanted to say a massive and very sincere thank you for helping us buy 4 Carlyle Street. We absolutely love the house and are really happy in our ‘forever’ home. Thank you to Miles for everything you did for us – for all your time, effort, advice and patience with us. You made our experience with real estate really positive!! Thanks again Scott and Carolyn

After having my property on the market with another agent and it not selling, I decided to call the Professionals. I had an instant rapport with Isjla and felt so comfortable with Isjla looking after my home. I was able to go to the UK and leave the sale in her capable hands. Whilst living in the UK my house sold and I am now finally able to move permanently. Thank you to Isjla and everyone at Methven Professionals who contributed to getting my home sold for a good price.

Cobras seize home advantage KILSYTH Cobras women will host the South East Australian Basketball League south conference grand final. The Cobras beat arch-rivals Knox Raiders 66-60 at the State Basketball Centre on Saturday night, earning the right to host the conference decider at Kilsyth Sports Centre on September 1 or 2. The Raiders will face Nunawading in the conference preliminary final at the State Basketball Centre this Saturday night. The Cobras and Raiders exchanged leads throughout the first half before the Cobras snuck out to a 51-45 three-quarter-time lead. The Cobras used a physical defensive effort along with some well-run offensive sets to extend their lead to 10 points in the final term behind a run of seven straight points from centre Kristen Barnes (18 points, nine rebounds). But the Raiders fought back in the final minutes, getting within five points of the Cobras before the visitors held strong to come out with the win. Cobras coach Peter Gay said his side had done well to wrestle back home court advantage. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the girls. We set ourselves the goal of getting a conference home grand final and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done that,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It will be exciting for the girls and considering how hot it was in here tonight it will be good to be back on our home court in the final.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Gay praised his players for getting hold of a decisive lead so late in the game and holding off the Raiders. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You have to respect them. They are a good side. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think the key for us was to play positive right to the end of the game and not to play just to run time of the clock.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hayley Moffat had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Cobras and Gemma Kerr had 11 points and four assists. Amy Denson led the Raiders with 15 points and Kelly Wilson had 14 points. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Roy Ward

THIS is not 2010 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is now. That is the mindset Ringwood Hawks will take into game 2 of the Big V state championship menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand final. The Hawks won game one of the series 70-61 against Eltham Wildcats at Eltham High School on Saturday night, so a win in the second meeting will give them their long sought-after title. The Hawks and Wildcats will play the crucial encounter at Maroondah Indoor Centre this Saturday night. Hawks veteran Willie Weimer said his side was ready to claim the title on their home court after several years of finals losses. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Our goal at the start of the play-offs was to win four games. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won three and have one more to go,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are raring to go. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talked about the other years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that was 2010; this is now.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; On Saturday night the Hawks faced a jam-packed stadium. The Hawks looked nervous and tentative early in the game. Skyler Bowlin (18 points and six rebounds) settled the Hawks with three straight bombs from downtown and by the end of the opening quarter, it was the Hawks by three points. The Wildcats hit back hard in the second quarter while the Hawks went ice cold with their perimeter shooting. For a team on a 15-game winning streak, the Hawks suddenly looked like a team under extreme pressure. Matt Snowball (15 points and six assists) and Shaun Clarke (eight points and seven rebounds) both hit key baskets, but the Hawks had seen their lead disappear and at the half trailed 40-33.

By his own high standards, Hawks bigman Adrien Sturt had a quiet first half for the Hawks. The first possession in the third quarter changed all that as Sturt nailed a three-pointer and pointed to the Wildcats fans who were giving the former Wildcat some choice words. The next play had the Hawks get a steal that led to a fast break, allowing Sturt to throw down an enormous twohanded slam that well and truly changed the momentum of the game. In a four-minute burst, Sturt individually put on 10 straight points and the Hawks hit the lead. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We were a bit flat early but we knew what we had to do,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weimer said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In the third quarter we only needed a few minutes to put together a 16-0 run. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Once we get going we are hard to stop. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The big key for us is when we start playing good defence. When we do that we are hard to stop.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The physical game became a basketfor-basket affair until late in the third quarter, when veteran Luke Egan nailed a corner three-pointer sending the visitors to the final break with a six-point lead. Sam Beltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usual offensive output was down but he did a great job defensively on Elthamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt Fennell, who struggled for only five points. Clarke and Mark Whitehead also had kept dangerous NBL all-star Cameron Tragardh in check.

Mustangs wade in to battle

Mud wrestle: Mooroolbark’s Luke Armstrong attempts to pick up the ball against Donvale on Saturday. Picture: Ted Kloszynski

‘‘When you are splitting differences between sides it could prove a big thing — that ability to play together and play for each other.’’ The Mustangs rested midfielders Mark Martin and Michael Smith on Saturday but they will return to face Bayswater. The winner of the Montrose and Rowville clash will make the division 2 grand final and the

loser will play the winner of the Mustangs and Bayswater game. Weekly photographer Ted Kloszynski took an eye-catching series of pictures from the Mustangs’ mud-wrestle against Donvale. Check them out at maroondahweekly .com.au

Tigers brace for do-or-die clash with Warby UPWEY-TECOMA don’t have any chances left — its next loss will be its last. The Tigers must win their final-round clash with Warburton-Millgrove at Upwey this Saturday to make the finals. A loss will have Warby keep fifth place. Victory for the Tigers will have them take fifth spot and a place in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League elimination final. The Tigers dropped a close battle with Wandin at Wandin on Saturday, losing by just eight points. Tigers coach Greg Spence said his side was down after the game, knowing it had left no wriggle room in its season. ‘‘Every game from now on is an elimination [YAR]

final; our next loss will be our last match,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s pretty clean cut and at least we still control our own destiny. ‘‘I didn’t have to say much after the game. The boys were pretty down on themselves, but we have to move on quickly to our next game.’’ Spence said the Tigers faced some of the coldest conditions they had ever played in during the Wandin game.

FINAL SCORES

BY ROY WARD MOOROOLBARK coach Brett Fisher is not one to throw mud but he still wasn’t too impressed with the state of Heights Reserve on Saturday. Fisher said the wet, sticky mud at the Mustangs home ground was unlike anything he had seen in decades. ‘‘I haven’t seen conditions like that since the mid-1980s,’’ he said. ‘‘It was atrocious. I thought the conditions at Rowville a few games ago were bad, even Montrose before that, but conditions in our matches have been getting progressively worse.’’ Fisher said the drains around the ground were blocked after heavy rain, creating the excessive mud on the ground. The Mustangs still managed to beat Donvale by 61 points, creating 22 scoring shots on a ground bereft of any grass. Fisher said his team played ‘‘terrific footy’’ in tough conditions. Luke Armstrong, Cam Linford and Matt Polkinghorne all showed their skills, kicking goals from midfield. The Mustangs have finished the Eastern Football League division 2 season in third place and will play Bayswater in the elimination final at Jubilee Park, Ringwood, this Sunday. Fisher says his side is showing all the right signs heading into the finals, which are expected to be very tight with Rowville and Montrose playing in the major semi-final on Saturday. ‘‘If you finish third or fourth you’ve got to beat everyone else. ‘‘We have been sitting third for the majority of the season, so we expected to finish third and be in the elimination final. ‘‘We have to make sure we make every post a winner and don’t get complacent because Bayswater are capable of beating us. They’ve proved that during the season.’’ With the finals battle expected to remain close throughout, Fisher has spent much of the second half of the year building the camaraderie and spirit in his side with the expectation that a little spirit could go a long way in a dire finals battle. ‘‘Some people see team spirit as a little thing, but I rate it highly.

close match earlier this season. ‘‘It’s always really tough, physical game. ‘‘They are a big-bodied side and we played them in wet, muddy conditions. So we expect it will be a huge game. ‘‘We are imploring our supporters to get down there and get behind the team.’’ YVMDFL division 1: Gembrook Cockatoo 56 points, 149.26 per cent; Woori Yallock 52, 124.63; Wandin 36, 92.38; Monbulk 32, 109.98; Warburton Millgrove 32, 99.52; Upwey Tecoma 30, 91.08; Mount Evelyn 28, 92.06; Olinda Ferny Creek 28, 79.63; Emerald 24, 99.21; Healesville 22, 80.85.
