Rough and ready Business leaders brave the cold for homelessness BASIL NAIMET

N

ext Thursday Chief Executive Officers across NSW will take part in the annual CEO Sleepout at Carriageworks in Redfern. The sleepout is a nationwide program designed for businesses to work together to raise awareness of homelessness in Sydney. Erskineville resident and St Vincent De Paul NSW CEO Michael Perusco said the sleepout gives CEOs a taste of what it’s like without a roof over their head. “The sleepout gets CEOs thinking about homelessness and why people are homeless in Australia and what we can do to reduce the numbers of homeless. I think that experience is very powerful,” he said. Mr Perusco said the idea behind the sleepout came from a government initiative that looked at reducing homelessness. “In 2008 the Government wrote a White Paper on halving homelessness by 2020. Over the last four years some good work has been done across states and territories, and we’re in a position now that we can benefit from that.” But the numbers are still high with 58 per cent of people experiencing homelessness being under 35-years, 44 per cent are women and 12 per cent are under the age of 12-years. Mr Perusco said only a collaborative effort between both sides of government and business will help bring down the numbers significantly. “Going into the election in September if we can get both sides of government to commit to these targets to reduce the numbers... we can reduce homelessness by 2020,” he said. Holly Kramer CEO of Best n Less in Leichhardt is looking forward to the sleepout for because it’s a great cause. Her target is to raise $75,000 and is leading the NSW tally, but wants to achieve the $100,000 mark. “It’s a win-win situation for our company because it makes the employees feel good about what their CEO is doing and our customers also feel good because we’re getting involved with worthwhile social initiatives,” she said. To donate see www.ceosleepout.org.au.

WHAT’S ON There are plenty of great activities happening in and around the Inner West and Sydney CBD. All you have to do is know where to look! We’ve compiled a great list of events coming up, from band performances to plays, art classes to guest talks. There’s something for everyone!

ulia Gillard is wrong to play the gender card, and the latest play of that card was exceedingly desperate. Ms Gillard intimated that the election of Tony Abbott would make abortion “the political play thing of men who think they know better”. Even to an adoring crowd at a “Women for Gillard” event, her most strident supporters would have cringed. Surely. Let’s not forget, single women have been taken off parenting payments and put on the low paid Newstart allowance on Gillard’s watch. The Prime Minister was happy to pose for a selfie with the king of misogyny Kyle Sandilands, who happened to be a guest at Kirribilli House. She’s also made a more recent decision to support a factional faceless man, David Feeney, for a safe Labor seat, endorsing him over two brilliant women even after calling for more women to enter politics. Julia Gillard often plays the gender card for pure political advantage, but this week, all on their own, the Liberal Party proved that their attitude to women is sexist. Under no circumstances is it OK to mock the Prime Minister’s private parts. It’s not funny. It’s appalling. It’s undignified. It’s sickening. So, how is it that someone thought it was OK to hold a Liberal Party fundraiser and print a scatological menu offering ‘Julia Gillard Kentucky Fried Quail – small breasts, huge thighs and a big red box’? It’s offensive to all women. It’s offensive

to the Office of Prime Minister and it makes me sad about the state of politics in this country. It happened at a fundraiser for Mal Brough, a seasoned politician in the Howard government and a wannabe Abbott soldier. He should know better, and obviously has very poor judgement. Not the kind of character we need in political life. Tony Abbott, to his credit condemned it, saying, “I think that we should all be bigger and better than that”. But Mr Abbott was wrong to maintain his support for Mr Brough’s preselection and he was wrong to compare it to a joke made about him and his chief of staff. “Whether it’s a tacky, scatological menu out the front of a Liberal Party event; whether it’s squalid jokes told at union conference dinners with ministers present – whatever it is I think we should be better than that,” he said. No, Mr Abbott. Th is time it wasn’t a joke from an uncouth comedian. Someone thought about this insult and went through with printing it and putting it on display in a nice restaurant for a $1,000-a-head fundraiser. What is it about this Queensland seat. The current member is Peter Slipper who also charmingly referred to a particular female organ as looking like “muscles removed from their shells”. “Salty c***s in Brine,” he said. The quail joke is one of the worst things I’ve seen in politics for a while. As a woman I am offended and unfortunately I don’t believe Mr Abbott has gone far enough. He had an opportunity to draw a

line in the sand and as leader of the Liberal Party he should have apologised without qualification. After writing about some of the rare and more beautiful moments in parliament last week, this week we have truly seen the ugly underbelly.

Rudd comeback rejected Albanese stands by PM amidst new speculation of a leadership challenge It’s the question that just won’t die. Will Julia Gillard lead the Government to the September federal election? Despite rumours of a Rudd comeback, Albanese stands by the embattled Prime Minister... rayndler MP Anthony Albanese has re-affi rmed his support for Prime Minister Julia Gillard amidst renewed speculation that Kevin Rudd is set to launch a last ditch attempt to lead Labor to the Federal Election later this year. With Labor struggling in the polls and set to be decimated across the nation at the election, scheduled for September 14, there is mounting talk that Ms Gillard could be in for one fi nal stoush with Kevin Rudd, possibly as early as next week. Mr Albanese wasn’t entertaining the idea of a Rudd comeback this week whilst completing his duties as the Minister for Infrastructure. “There’s a couple of people that obviously didn’t get the message of what Kevin Rudd said earlier on this year and last year, which is that he would not challenge again for the leadership,” Mr Albanese said. “He made that clear, he’s made that clear since.” Mr Albanese said that the focus needed to be away from “personality politics”. “We’ve resolved these issues in the past,” he said of the ongoing leadership tensions. “What Australians are interested in, in the lead-up to September is what are the

Ms Gillard was defiant that she would not be standing aside as Labor leader. “I am the best person to lead the Labor Party,” Ms Gillard said on Tuesday.

“I will certainly be leading Labor at the next election.” Mr Rudd took to campaigning in marginal Labor seats in Sydney this week.

abor has delivered on their promise to the ratepayers of Marrickville to get the “basics right� following Tuesday night’s annual budget meeting at Council headquarters. The May budget focused on improvements and increasing local services that were important to the community, including planning strategies for their delivery. Labor Councillor Emanuel Tsardoulias said Labor stuck by their election promise of providing child care and affordable housing. “Changes to our demographics include the increasing number of families with young children and our ageing population which means we must look at investing in quality child care and affordable housing options,� Cr Tsardoulias said. He said the Labor faction lobbied for the budget to include extra staff to source affordable housing. “Marrickville local Labor has been working hard to see more affordable housing in this area which is why the budget includes funding for a part time

Affordable Housing Officer,â€? he said. Cr Tsardoulias said he was disappointed the Greens rejected the budget, given there was majority support initially. “The strategy of the Greens where they just say ‘No’ to everything will only see ratepayers and their families get left behind.â€? Greens councillor Max Phillips said the Greens rejected the budget because they felt the $1 million to be spent on placing artificial turf on Arlington Oval at Dulwich Hill could have been channelled into other areas of need. “We said no to the budget because there are over 2,000 children on child care waiting lists. The community is asking for the $1 million to go into such facilities,â€? he said. Additional proposed new services and improvements for 2013/14 include: • Improving footpaths and streetscape with a budget of $820,000, • A Seniors Activity Program worth $50,000 in total, • The controversial artificial turf for Arlington Oval worth over $1 million • Stormwater maintenance to a value of $200,000, and • Additional resources for child care services worth $160,000.

Mongolian artist’s unique life and culture BASIL NAIMET

his year’s Open Marrickville Festival will feature one of the Inner West’s talented artists who’s made his way from Mongolia to Marrickville to let his artistic talent flourish. Ganbold Lundaa also known as Gawaa married an Australia woman in Mongolia in 2003 and moved to Australia in 2009. It was a cultural change Gawaa didn’t prepare for, or expect. “Western culture was a real shock,� he said. “When I arrived in Australia I didn’t work as an artist, I did a number of occupations to get by. For six years I worked doing jobs that other people just wouldn’t do. I drove taxis, buses, did odd jobs and was a cleaner.� His passion though was painting. He is committed to painting and sees himself doing it on a professional level. Making money isn’t a priority for Mr Lundaa. It’s taken him many years to get to where he is today. His paintings are captivating. He has around 20 paintings on display during the Open Festival. “I’ve done a painting of my daughter Lily which is a favourite of mine,� he explained. The motivation for being an artist is his love for telling the story of his life in Mongolia and certain aspects of their culture. People living in Australia live in houses, but in Mongolia they live in tents called a “Yurt�. The Yurt will also be featured in the paintings on display. “I want to show the people of the Inner West what my life journey has been; our culture in Mongolia. I want to capture my experiences in my paintings,� he said. Gawaa’s paintings will be on show during the Open Festival Marrickville at the Tortuga Studios at 31 Princes Highway, St Peters, from June 20 to 23.

Renewed appeal: Police wish to speak to two men Police have renewed their appeal for information following an assault and theft of a designer watch in Marrickville last month. About 7.30pm on Tuesday, May 7, a 30-year-old man, who had advertised a valuable designer wrist watch for sale on line, met with a prospective purchaser on Marrickville Road. Two men walked past the seller as he waited and then returned to engage him in conversation. One of the men then produced a handgun and pointed it at the victim and the second man placed him in a headlock. The man was dragged into a nearby premises and an altercation ensued where he was threatened with the gun and stabbed several times in the leg. Both offenders then fled on foot with the wrist watch west along Marrickville Road. The victim was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for treatment to his injuries. Police from Marrickville Local Area Command would still like to speak to two men in relation to the incident. The fi rst man is described as Pacific Islander, aged in his 20’s with dark hair and clean shaven. The second man is described as being of Mediterranean or Middle Eastern appearance, also aged in his 20’s with short dark hair and a short beard. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Green grows green School kitchen garden benefits from State Govt funding BASIL NAIMET

tanmore Public School P & C recently received a $6,000 grant as part of the State Government’s Community Building Partnership Program. Member for Marrickville Carmel Tebbutt visited the school yesterday to see fi rst-hand how the school’s kitchen garden was developing, where the funds have been channelled. The students will learn to grow, prepare and eat fresh produce. Ms Tebbutt said the kitchen garden project would benefit the students immensely. “Th is is a fantastic project which includes a greenhouse so students can grow things all year round. Irrigation pipes to water the garden will also be laid,” she said. “These facilities will provide valuable lessons in ecology, conservation, healthy eating and lifestyles.” 13 local organisations received funding totalling more than $200,000 from the NSW program. Ms Tebbutt said organisations always benefit from funds and was disappointed that given the initiative was popular when fi rst introduced by the former Labor Government, and now in it’s fourth year, it is facing budget cuts again in the Government’s second budget. “In 2011, 18 organisations received $300,000 to build local infrastructure and I have seen the benefits of this funding to

these organisations,” she said. Other recipients of funds were the Anglican Church Dulwich Hill ($45,518), The Green Orthodox Community of NSW ($22,000) and The Australian Foundation

for the Disability at Marrickville Disability Enterprise ($20,000). Although further cuts were made, local organisations can still benefit from funding that is available.

Crime falling says ABS The NSW Police Force has welcomed the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showing the number of victims of crime in New South Wales is stable or falling in almost all categories. For example, there were 119 victims of homicide recorded in NSW in 2012, 19 per cent fewer than 2011 (146).

Nominations now open

Plea to speak up

Nominations for the 2013 Carers Awards are now open. The NSW Carers Awards recognise and celebrate carers dedication in supporting people who need care because of disability, mental illness, chronic health condition or because they are frail and aged. Visit www.adhc.nsw.gov.au before June 28.

People prefer to put up with incontinence rather than suffer the embarrassment of seeking help for the treatable condition, according to a national health body. Research from the Continence Foundation of Australia highlights that 70 per cent of the 4.8 million Australian adults living with bladder and bowel control problems do not discuss the issue, even with their GP, despite the fact most cases can be cured or better managed. Continence Foundation of Australia Chief Executive, Barry Cahill said community stigma and personal embarrassment remain the biggest barriers towards recovery and better management. “Unfortunately, there is a stigma associated with incontinence and people are too embarrassed to seek help,” Mr Cahill said. “But the number of people affected is too big to ignore. The fi rst step towards recovery or better management is raising the issue with a health professional.”

of flashing lights by December 2015, the State Government has announced. Premier Barry O’Farrell said the upcoming State Budget will increase funding for the program from $19.5 million to $32.5 million – it means an additional 1,500 schools will get lights by 2015 that otherwise would have missed out. “Th is is a landmark decision which will further enhance road safety and the safety of children around schools,” Mr O’Farrell said. “Our children are our most vulnerable and inexperienced road users – the NSW Government is committed to doing whatever we can to protect them. “Flashing lights are one of the most effective tools we have to slow down motorists near schools – I’m delighted we’re able to extend this successful program to every school.” Treasurer Mike Baird said the NSW Government will continue to prioritise funding to deliver better services and infrastructure across the State.

140ICD3178

Minister for Fair Trading Anthony Roberts this week launched Operation Salt to ensure retailers are complying with the interim product safety bans on a range of synthetic drugs, including cannabinoids and bath salts. Mr Roberts said 120 Fair Trading officers are now moving across the state to ensure traders are removing the synthetic drug products from their shelves. “Th is operation is about ensuring these dangerous synthetic drug products have been removed from sale,” Mr Roberts said. “Th is isn’t a silver bullet to fi x the scourge of synthetic drugs but it is an important step forward in protecting the community. “Th is will help stop someone from walking into a shop and thinking a synthetic drug is safe because it is on the shelf and available for purchase.” Under Section 109 of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) Mr Roberts can only issue interim product safety bans for up to 90 days.

Understand their plight: Centre fights for refugees BASIL NAIMET

s the discussion on whether asylum seekers should be “turned away” or processed in remote areas of Australia heats up, one Marrickville group is sending the message to governments to accept refugees for simply being human beings. As part of this year’s Refugee Week, from June 16 until June 22, the Addison Road Community Centre (ARCCO) will be doing what it can to highlight the plight of refugees in Australia. ARCCO’s President, Vivi GermanosKoutsounadis said refugees have a right to seek asylum in Australia. “Under the conventions Australia has signed relating to human rights, refugees not only have the right to seek asylum, they also have a right to be treated humanely,” she said. “Many more people are becoming refugees and are desperate to escape the dismal circumstances in their countries. When you are desperate you are going to do anything, that is human nature.” Refugee Week gets under way on Sunday from 1pm at the community centre which is located on 142 Addison Road, Marrickville. The feature will be ‘The Wall of Oblivion’, which will display pictures that depict more than 1,500 children living in detention centres in Australia. General Manager of the ARCCO Rosanna Barbero said the purpose of the Wall of Oblivion was to evoke empathy in people. “We are also transforming the car park into tents to represent how people

A

are living in refugee conditions. It is also to symbolise that we as a society need to share our resources with those seeking asylum in Australia,” she said. To demonstrate the talents of refugees, Mahmoud Salameh who was a refugee in Syria for 40 years will be showcasing his painting skills and teaching.

Improving social connections ocial connections and positive relationships are strongly linked to our mental health and wellbeing. Th roughout our lives our relationships with others change, but they remain important. Being around people gives us the opportunity to share our experiences and to learn about the experience of others. Good relationships with family and friends help us to have fun and enjoy life. Other people can help us out with practical tasks and support us to reach our goals. We can grow at any stage of life we just need to be open to new experiences. Building our knowledge and skill at a task we really enjoy can boost self-esteem, give us opportunities for social interaction, and improve our overall wellbeing. When setting new challenges or taking on new activities choose things that are meaningful for you and fit with your interests and values. Be flexible. Try and think about your new goals in terms of things you want to add to your life, instead of in terms of things you are trying to avoid. Sites such as mentalhealth.asn.au can be helpful and give helpful tips. Some ways to connect: • Offer to help – volunteer for an organisation you believe in or just help your mate move house. • Combine doing something for your physical health with a social activity

KEEPING FIT by David Stein

Trainers know how you’re feeling

to improve your mental health. Go for a walk with a friend or join a walking group. • Make spending quality time with people close to you a priority and keep up to date with what is happening in their lives. Try to be a good listener and let others share their stories without interrupting. Some ways to grow: • Ask someone you know to teach you something they do well or are enthusiastic about and that you’ve been interested in for a long time. • Write a list of what you value most and a list of what you spend time on. Do they match up? What could you do to spend more time on what is important to you? • Break a big task into smaller chunks. What’s the very fi rst step you need to take? Write down a plan of where, when and how you’ll do this and how you’ll deal with any obstacles. Don’t forget a fi nish date.

I

spoke to a person the other day who said she wants to come and see me, as soon as she gets a bit fitter. Th is isn’t uncommon. If you’re sick do you wait until you’re better before you go to the doctor? What about quickly change your oil before you take the car in for a service? We don’t want the mechanic seeing how dirty our old oil is! Starting your training journey is daunting. It’s very hard for an overweight, unfit person to walk into a gym or see a trainer the fi rst time. I don’t just mean hard to get up the steps but the willpower to stick to the decision and go right outside their comfort zone. It makes people feel very vulnerable. The trainer might be quite fit and healthy themselves, so people think trainers must be looking at their new client judging them. It’s funny but somewhere it’s assumed everybody knows how to keep fit and anyone who doesn’t is just lazy. We all own a body so must know how to look after it. Th is isn’t true. I train people to become trainers and I know how much is involved in making someone good at it. To assume everybody should just know how to do it is ridiculous. I can say from experience, having completed my trade straight after I left school, a carpenter learns a lot before he earns his papers,

Elisha is a registered nurse and midwife who has years of experience working in emergency departments, general wards and maternity wards

but then they can take an old house and turn it into something much better. A trainer is in the trade of getting people fit. The ‘product’ they make is fit, healthy people. Any trainer worth more than $1.50 an hour knows how people feel when coming in the fi rst time. They are professionals, assessing where a new client is and where they want to be and then designing a way to get them there. They’re not thinking “you’re fat and I’m not”. They have chosen to follow a career path that revolves around helping others improve their results too. It is a service industry. Skill level as a trainer is judged by what they can do for a client. It’s entirely normal to feel a little trepidation starting out, but give it a while and see if that doesn’t turn into excitement as you start feeling and seeing all the great results from your efforts.

www.innercityweekender.com.au within the next few months with two more hosts to be announced very soon. Ten are giving it all they’ve got this time around after their last breakfast show didn’t even last a year. Not sure if Ita will be the saviour for Ten and turn viewers away from ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Today’ but can’t blame them for trying.

CHATTER ON THE BOX WITH NATHAN TAYLOR M

assive news came through late last week that ‘Bananas in Pyjamas’ could be on its way out after 21 years of dedicated service. Now the show hasn’t officially been axed but it’s been confirmed by the ABC that there will be no new episodes of the show for at least two years. Now, I’ll admit I no longer watch the show for obvious reasons, but I have many great childhood memories watching those “bananas coming down the stairs”. I should probably mention that the show is no longer live action but animated, which I believe took away the essence of the show. Legendary media personality Ita Buttrose is returning to television, this time as one of the hosts of Channel Ten’s new morning television show (yes, another one). The yet to be named panel show will air

Popular Foxtel show ‘Wentworth’ has been renewed for a second season. The prison drama premiered last month to record ratings for an Australian subscription TV series, so it’s no surprise it will be back for another year. Another Aussie drama back for more is Nine’s ‘House Husbands’. The popular drama starring Gary Sweet and Julia Morris will return for a third season in 2014. The show has been achieving average ratings of late, last week it scored 848,000 viewers – not ideal but not too bad. American comedy ‘Eastbound and Down’ will end after its fourth season. It was set to end after three seasons but was resurrected. Season four premiers in the US in September and will air on Foxtel soon after. Channel Ten is set to air a ‘Biggest Loser’ special called ‘The Biggest Loser’s Biggest Ever Makeovers’. The two-night special is set to feature “favourite contestants from the past eight seasons of the show, and the makeovers that changed their lives”. Can’t say I’ll be watching this one but it could be fascinating for fans to see if former contestants have kept the weight off or gone back to their old ways. I think they’ve milked this concept long enough. Lastly, for people that know me this

would be no surprise but my favourite show this week is new A&E series ‘All Star Dealers’ (pictured). The history of sports holds thousands of untold treasures, and Richie Russek is determined to find them all. With the help of his sons Michael and Darren and his company Grey Flannel

Auctions, the group tracks down rare game-worn jerseys, vintage bats and forgotten trophies. To sports fanatics like themselves these items are priceless, and customers will pay anything in order to own a piece of history. Catch it Wednesday nights at 8.30pm on A&E.

The Great Australian Dream The end or a new beginning? fter years of downsizing, 2013 could be the year Sydney buyers go big, reclaiming the great Australian dream of a home with a backyard. It’s no secret that housing affordability in Sydney has been an ongoing issue for some time. Median lot sizes have been in decline and just 61 per cent of Sydney families currently live in detached homes, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Apartment ownership has been on the rise and that lifelong dream of a home in the suburbs has gradually started to fade for many buyers who have been priced out of the market – despite having growing families and a strong desire for that extra space for the kids to run around in. But is it really the end for the great Australian dream? Not necessarily. According to Allam Property Group Sales Manager, George Allam, the company is striving to break the holding pattern that Sydneysiders have found themselves in. “Having a home with the big backyard has long been part of the great Australian dream. As a parent, I know how important it is to have space where children can play and explore. But it’s not just about the kids; adults also want the room to be able to host BBQs in the yard or extra space to have friends and relatives stay overnight. “Allam is a family owned and oriented business, and it’s because of this that we’re focused on providing affordable packages that allow people to have that big home

A

they’ve always dreamed about. At our Talana Rise estate in Edmondson Park, for example, prices start at just $545,000 for a four-bedroom home – a pretty similar price to what a two bedroom apartment might cost you in the inner city,” he said. Given that many of the Allam estates are offering up affordable new homes on a platter, is it as simple as encouraging potential buyers to change their way of thinking? “Obviously, the convenience of an inner-city lifestyle has been driving demand for medium-density housing in centralised areas. People have been happy to downsize in order to be closer to the office or have greater access to restaurants and entertainment. It’s clear that many people want that short commute to work, but I think people need to ask themselves whether saving on travel time is worth sacrificing the perfect family home,” Mr Allam said. Indeed, Allam estates including Talana Rise and Skybrook are all well connected to the city and cater specifically for growing families. At Talana Rise residents will have the convenience of well-established shopping nearby. The area is also earmarked for expansion with a new Town Centre to include supermarkets, speciality shops, offices and a school. Talana Rise is just minutes away from the future South West Rail Link, providing easy access to major employment and shopping centres including Parramatta, Liverpool and Sydney CBD, while Allam’s Skybrook residential estate in Sydney’s

2013 STATE OF ORIGIN

Allam estates provide a balance of convenient living, proximity and housing affordability.

thriving South West is also linked to major commercial centres via the M7 freeway located nearby the community. The four and five bedroom homes or three bedroom garden homes at the estates are built with families in mind, featuring fully separate living spaces, inside entertaining areas and some homes offer outdoor alfresco entertaining areas, as well as spacious backyards. “At the end of the day, we want home buyers to be able to buy their ideal home while still staying connected to the

everyday hustle and bustle of Sydney. Our estates all offer that balance,” Mr Allam said. Packages at Talana Rise start from $545,000 for a four-bedroom home and at Skybrook from $470,000 for a threebedroom garden home and from $584,000 for a four-bedroom home, all with premium inclusions.

Powering his way to the top It’s a long road, but cyclist Chris Hageman has the talent and aspirations BASIL NAIMET

ith Cadel Evans fuelling the interest of cycling in Australia, one young athlete is looking to fly the flag for the Inner West and has aspirations to reach the heights Cadel has. Meet 17-year-old Chris Hageman. The young Ashfield cyclist who rides for the Dulwich Hill cycle club took up the sport in 2010, and in just three years has notable achievements to speak of. Chris started riding in June 2010 as a junior competing in track. By January 2011 he was competing in road bike championships; his fi rst being the NSW State Scratch race for Under 17’s. “I started to build on road rides and raced throughout the year. In December 2011 I was riding in the individual pursuit track and state individual pursuit,” he said. He has competed in a number of events along the way but his most recent achievements have catapulted him into the senior ranks. “I participated in the Allenview Turf Troy Bayliss invitational where a number of professional teams took part. I fi nished 12 out of 100, with 50 of the riders not fi nishing,” he said. The fact that he has gone from racing in his age group to races for open riders makes it extra special for Chris. He’ll take part in the Santos North-West Tour to be held in country NSW from June 19-22. It’s a race that goes for four days with five stages to complete and he is relishing the opportunity. “Because I did well recently on the Gold Coast in the U/17 National Road Series, I was asked by the racing Kangaroos to join their team to ride in June,” he said. With that kind of endorsement, he is well on his way to becoming a champion.

MIXED SOCIAL

ewtown has escaped with a thrilling 26-22 win over Windsor in the NSW Cup. Despite going into this top-five match as underdogs and having to deal with late team changes, the Newtown Jets defeated the Windsor Wolves 26-22 in the 13th round, played at Pioneer Oval in Parkes on Sunday. The central-western NSW town turned on fi ne weather and an excellent venue, and the visiting teams obliged by providing an exciting spectacle with 10 tries being scored and the lead changing hands several times. The Wolves led 12-10 at halftime but Newtown’s increasingly formidable forward pack laid the foundations for the Jets’ second half resurgence. Windsor fielded a strong line-up with no fewer than 11 players boasting NRL experience, whereas Newtown’s squad had somewhat less by way of top-level playing credentials. The Jets were fi rst to score when halfback Ryley Jacks sent fullback Henare Wells over with a beautifully-timed short pass. The Wolves took full advantage of Newtown’s inability to defuse two high kicks and scored twice down the right side to lead 8-4 midway through the fi rst half. Newtown’s five-eighth Samisoni Langi, on debut in the NSW Cup, showed superb

judgement and skill in laying on a try for the rampaging Josh Ailaomai in the 32nd minute. The Wolves regained the lead on the stroke of half-time when the Jets again failed to prevent Windsor from scoring. The Wolves nearly scored early in the second half but had a try disallowed on a touch judge’s report.

Jets captain Tinirau Arona then rolled a grubber-kick into the north-westerners’ in-goal which was pounced on. The score was 20-18 at the 67th minute, and a fi nal Jets try extended Newtown’s lead to 26-18, with this margin being reduced through an unconverted Windsor try in the 79th minute. A thrilling win!
