etersham residen t Andrew H eslop who started Neighbour Day in 2003, an initiative that sees neighbours across Australia get to know each other one day a year, announced on Monday he was giving it away. The idea behind the na tional day was first pro posed i n a l etter t o The Ag e in M arch 2 003 a fter Victorian Police found the remains of Mrs Elsie Brown in her Melbourne home – forgotten by her neighbours, friends and family. A coroner la ter established Mrs Bro wn’s dea th had occ urred tw o y ears earlier in J anuary 2001 but she had never been reported as missing. An urgent call to check up on elderly, vulnerable or sin gle neighbours li ving alone has gro wn to become a national series of street parties, barbecues, open da ys, festivals, fairs and other formal and informal community activities run by neighbours, residenc y groups and loc al g overnment thanks to Mr Heslop. The 2012 NSW Volunteer of the Year, Mr Heslop said he didn ’t wan t the ini tiative to turn in to a fundraising venture, rather he wanted to make it

as cost effective for people as possible. “My in tention w ith this projec t was to mak e it easy for people to come tog ether in their o wn neighbourhood and just g et to kno w each other . They could be as c reative or e xtravagant in put ting it together, or as simple as they like,” Mr Heslop said. “All people have to do is go online register their event and i t’s done. They c an or ganise a party , have a BBQ , or just a couple of people g etting together and having a cup of tea.” The projec t has gro wn e xponentially, and requires more funds and commitment. “It is w ith an enormous sense of pride and achievement that I have made the dec ision to relinquish Neighbour Da y after guidin g it for more than 10 years,” he said. “Neighbour Day needs financial support that is significantly greater than wha t I am able to pro vide. I t needs a formal str ucture and a team of people who c an guide i t during business hours – not after hours and on weekends as I have needed to do,” he said. Mr Heslop wanted to espec ially thank M ember for Grayndler Anthony Albanese for his continued support over the 10 years. “I noticed Albo tweeted this today and I want to thank him for his support.” Expressions of in terest f rom not - for- profit organisations who w ish to take over the reigns c an be sen t to: informa tion@neighbourday.org or posted to Neighbour Day, PO Box 968 Double Bay NSW 1360.

After the dea th of Nicholas D evine’s wife Mar garet in 1827 , Nicholas signed over all of the land to his convict servant Bernard Rochford, who then c arved up the estate and sold it off bar 10 acres. After the dea th of Nicholas D evine in 1830 and B ernard Rochford in 18 39 the Devine family in Ireland took legal action against members of their o wn family for rightful ownership of the land. By 184 9 ho wever the New town/Erskineville area was w ell established. By this time, some of the land owners were prominent c itizens of S ydney such as the Lord Mayor of Sydney, the Attorney General, parliamentarians, the edi tor of the Sydney Morning Herald, a few barristers and solicitors. Weight of Evidence is about the lies and deceit tha t took place in early S ydney and the families who played out the real life drama that was at the time the lar gest civil court case in Australia’s history. There was a retrial and the ma tter ended up being settled outside of court in 1857, five years after the original legal action was commenced.

Marrickville Council is encouraging residents to take part in the annual Garage Sale Trail on Saturday, October 26. Mayor of Marrickville Jo Haylen said garage sales are a great way to bring community members together while at the same time reducing waste. “The Trail is a great fit with Marrickville Council. In fact two of our current campaigns – Two Way Street, and Towards Zero Waste – will both benefit from our involvement,” she said. “Two Way Street is all about encouraging a stronger sense of community through getting to know your neighbours and there’s no doubt garage sales brings everyone out in search of a bargain.

“These figures confirm NSW’s screen industry is the best in the country – no wonder Angelina Jolie chose to film Unbroken here,” Mr Souris said. “This is tremendous news for NSW. Production is on an upwards trend with $430 million in NSW in 2012-13, compared to $370 million in the previous year. “The screen production sector is a major priority for the NSW Government – it is a highly skilled industry that drives innovation and enhances NSW’s international reputation as a centre of excellence.” The report reveals that NSW was the location for high levels of both foreign and local production, including the feature film ‘The Wolverine’.

Newtown Neighbourhood Centre's soap box stand to end poverty now

aughter and fun was the or der of the da y last F riday a t the New town Neighbourhood Cen tre, which commemora ted M ental Health month whilst also bringing home a serious message about Anti Poverty Week. A series of ev ents were organised to ensure the message of ‘little acts big impacts’ would be con veyed to all who a ttended and took part. Activities such as jugglin g, table tennis, a series of boar d games and hula hoopin g were or ganised so tha t ev ery member of the community could get involved. The fun then in tensified w ith en tertainment starting at 1pm when a danc ing Flashmob took the centre stage. A spokesperson for the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre said the da y was c aptivating, attracting positive comments from

onlookers who were passing by. “We had a passer- b y who said i t was amazing to see such a ran ge of community members dancing together, everyone looked so happy,” the spokesperson said. Over 100 people took part on the da y from communi ty members, New town Public S chool, staff, v olunteers and loc al business owners. The spok esperson said a teacher f rom Newtown P ublic S chool h ad c ommented that the chil dren enjo yed the ev ent and hoped that the school and Neighbourhood Cen tre coul d w ork tog ether on future events. Straight after the Flashmob did their dance routine, the S oap Box was brough t out where community members spoke publicly against poverty and offered ways that it could be prevented. A j oint r eport b y U niting C are Ch ildren Young People and F amilies and NA TSEM (University of Canberra) c alled Poverty, Social Exc lusion and Disad vantage in Australia, released this mon th sho wed that in 2011 - 12 NS W had a po verty ra te for all people of 12. 8 per cen t (917 ,000) and a chil d po verty ra te of 13. 8 per cen t (187,000).

Dulwich Hill student perseveres with "monster" of a short film project Rejection is no deterrence to Year 9 student who has set his sights on Flickerfest BASIL NAIMET @ICWJournalist

I

t’s a “monster ” of a projec t, but one that Dulw ich Hill studen t J ordan Koorey relishes. A y ear 9 studen t a t St Maroun’s Colleg e, J ordan has the makings of a successful filmmaker. Having submi tted his la test short film to Trop J r, (modelled on Tropfest but for filmmakers under the ag e of 15) J ordan missed out on selec tion bec ause his film ran a few minutes over the required time. But the budding film maker has a second chance to have his film recognised b y the film community, with two more film competitions now open for submissions. With TropJ r’s theme this y ear bein g ‘Monster’, Jordan decided to create a film about ‘Daniel’ a teenager who suffers from mental disorder schizophrenia. “Daniel is a troubled teenag e bo y who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia as

Jordan Koorey (middle) on the set of his short film. a result of trauma tising ev ents tha t ha ve occurred in the past. Daniel’s illness causes him to see negative scenarios normally with pleasure, and positive scenarios in a distorted form… monsters,” Jordan said.

The film is designed to raise awareness of mental illness in teenagers and how being a schizophrenic can affect the mind. Patrick Anissa who pla ys Daniel said making the film was in teresting but satis-

fying because Jordan made it possible. “It c an be tirin g w ork a t times, J ordan is dedic ated to his film w ork. H e is the smartest student we have in the school, ” he said. Assistant Principal and En glish Co-ordinator Helena George agrees. Having played the role of a psy chiatrist in the film, Ms G eorge said Jordan’s dedication to his craft is worthy of praise. “He is very driven, and mature. His professionalism in makin g this film is amazing. I ha ve to say I’ve never seen anyone of Jordan’s age put together such a professional project.” She said the way Jordan puts everything together from concept to completed product is something to behold as was his meticulous attention to detail. “He’ll become very successful, he knows what he wan ts – he has an instinc t for film,” Ms George said. Missing out on the Trop J r competition hasn’t stopped J ordan f rom g etting his work out there and into the community. He plans to submi t the film to ‘Flick erfest’ (adult en tries) and ‘ Getyaheadright’ (for students under the age of 18). Do you have a community story to share?

Police hunt thief in sour end to fantastic Festival

Two men distract local store staff and steal sum of cash

On Sunday, October 20, Marrickville Council held the annual Marrickville Festival. The festival consisted of a large number of stalls and entertainment stages. About 4.40pm a number of the stall operators were preparing to close. During this time a male has taken a cash tin from the serving counter of the stall which was located within the vicinity of the Alex Travillion Plaza. Police were alerted and attended the location shortly afterwards. On arrival police were informed the male had fled from the scene and was last seen running down Illawarra Lane towards Calvert Street, Marrickville. The male was described as of thin build, fair complexion and brown shoulder length hair.

About 5.55pm on Monday, October 21, the victim was working a counter at a store. At this time a male has entered, wanting to purchase goods without any money. The male has then managed to distract the victim by getting them to attend the rear of the store. During this time a second male has entered the store and taken a large sum of cash that was contained in a bag behind the counter. Male one is described as Aboriginal appearance, medium build, 35 to 40-years -old and 175-180cm tall. Male two is described as Aboriginal appearance, large build, dark complexion and 170-180cm tall. and wearing light green shorts, a grey collared top and a blue cap.

Offensive language scratched into man's car bonnet

Man tried to defraud woman with wheelchair bound son

About 2.30pm on Monday, October 21, a victim parked his vehicle in Coventry Lane, Marrickville. Approximately 8pm the same day the victim returned to move the vehicle. On doing so he was unable to open the driver’s door. On closer inspection, he noticed an offensive word had been scratched into the bonnet and other damage including dents to a number of panels. Anyone with information about this incident or other acts of vandalism is urged to contact the Marrickville Local Area Command on 9568 9299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Detectives from Marrickville Local Area Command have charged a man with allegedly defrauding a woman. A 42-year-old woman met a 34-yearold man who allegedly purported to be a financial advisor. The man claimed he could help arrange a vehicle with a wheelchair conversion, to assist with her 12-year-old wheelchair dependent son. On two days in August 2013, the woman transferred a sum of cash to the man as a contribution to the vehicle, and did not hear from him again. On Wednesday, October 16, police arrested and charged the 34-year-old man with dishonestly obtain financial advantage by deception.

The next month should see a rapid inc rease in your wealth. To make the best of this opportuni ty you’d better dust off the account books and tak e a g ood look a t the figures.

UP TO 70% OFF 85 duNning avenue rosebery, NSW WED/FRI 10AM-5PM, THURS 12PM-7PM, SAT 10AM-4PM, CLOSED SUN-TUES 160ICD3617

A woman’s spring/summer wardrobe should not be complete w ithout a tailored but ton-up white shirt; the staple item for the season. Not only is a white shirt the perfect go-to when you have nothing you feel lik e wearing but i t is somethin g that you can wear anywhere, anytime, and can dress up or down. For an i tem so simple, i t is har d to believ e that it can be worn in any situation but with the right styling and accessories, your shirt c an be w orn anywhere from the mo vies to the beach. To work: Building your daily office outfit around a white shirt is simple and there are hundreds of wa ys you can do it. If you choose to wear a pencil skirt, wear your tailored shirt o ver the top , without tucking it in and fasten a belt around your waist. This will accentuate your figure and gives an edge to the classic ‘ office uniform’. Wear simple jew ellery, a watch, a stand out pair of heels and pull your hair into a low bun. To the shops: I lo ve to wear a white shirt to the shops, especially when I am in tending on trying on clothes because it is easy to take on and off and will go with anything you wish to tr y on. Wear w ith y our fa vourite jeans or denim shorts for a c asual look and use minimal makeup and accessories. To the mo vies: H ow y ou w ear y our shirt to the movies depends on who you are going with but for me, the movies is generally a c asual e xperience. I w ould wear m y shirt tuck ed in to a pair of jeans, with a belt or tucked in to a pretty skirt. If I wanted to dress up my outfit I would add a long necklace. To dinner: The important things to remember for a dinner date or out to a bar is the accessories; heels, jewellery, bags.

love the spring warmth so pet owners need to be vigilant

FITNESS

Be prepared for tick season this spring

Don't believe everything you read

Early sprin g is a lo vely time of y ear, we’re startin g to see more sunshine, the jasmine has started to bloom and summer mode has started to kick in for many of us. As the humidity increases and temperatures rise, spring is also one of the favourite seasons for those eigh t- legged creatures we pet owners fear – paSAM ralysis ticks. KOVAC Given the warmer- than- normal la te Director of the winter w e ha ve had, the tick populaSouthern Cross tion this season is ready to e xplode. Veterinary Clinic The ticks ha ve already g ot this head 9516 0234 start and many tick larva right now are already turning into fully-fledged deadly adults. When an adult tick la tches on to i ts v ictim i t feeds on the blood and infuses a toxin that can cause pneumonia, paralysis and death, so us pet owners need to get proactive now! Identification: Like w ith many things in life, the prev entative products aren't 100 per cent effective so what can be done if you find a tick or if y ou think y our pet has been bi tten by these crawly devils? You need to be able to recognise what features make a paralysis tick look dif ferent from normal ticks; the middle two pairs of legs are lighter in colour than the first and last pair, and their legs are “bunched up” at the front of the body. Where to find them: Ticks typic ally latch onto the f ront of the body as your pet is r unning through bushes and they lik e to hide between the toes and around ears. An y change of behaviour, regurgitation or ev en a chan ged sound of y our pets bark or meow can be a sign of envenomation. If you do find a tick on your pet, don’t just rip it off. The simplest way is to tie a knot in a piece of den tal floss under the head of the tick and crush the mouthpart of the creature. And make sure you head to your vet!

I picked up a men’s fitness magazine this morning to have a look through. After flicking through it for about three minutes I actually became a little bit dumber. Seriously, between the ads w ith models w earing either expensive watches, sunglasses or aftersha ve, were some of the most pointless routines I have ever seen. Most of my students that have just started their Certificate III fitness course would hand in a whole lot bet ter program than what some of these ‘expert trainers’ are publishing. There was a nutri tion article sa ying how great it is tha t you can drink as man y Red Bull Zeros as y ou like bec ause there are zero c alories, and had research of ho w stimulants might make you train 100 times bet ter, no doubt researched a t the Red Bull research centre. Funny the ‘article’ was right next to a full page ad for the drink. There are pag es and pag es of ads sellin g synthetic supplements that are tr ying very poorly to cop y what’s in a glass of milk and a couple of eggs, and charging a fortune for it. There was ev en a full sec tion on skinc are and cosmetic s. Why does every fitness publication seems to turn into another beauty catalogue?. I guess i t’s hard to wri te a new magazine each mon th saying to ‘get fit’, ‘go out for a r un’, ‘maybe do a couple sprin ts’, ‘find something heavy, lift i t up’, ‘use the muscles in the lift you want to build up’. It’s not rocket science! There is no magic routine or supplement to make you fitter or stronger faster than anyone else. But that won’t be enough to fill a magazine up betw een the pages of ads. Next time I want to read a magazine I will go down to the fragrance section of Myer and ask the sales guy for some fi tness tips whilst he shows me the latest beauty moisturisers. The result w ill be the same and I’ll sa ve the $7 on the c atalogue, I mean magazine. Do yo u ha ve a que stion f or D avid? Email yo ur topic s uggestions to david@fitec.com.au.

J

ust in time for the release of his brand new sin gle, British singer- songwriter James Blunt has announced he w ill be tourin g Australia next year. The best-selling musician is set to return to Australia, with a performance at the SHANNON COCHRANE

Sydney Sta te Thea tre on F riday, Ma y 30 , 2014. The announcemen t coinc ides w ith the recent release of Blun t’s latest song ‘Bonfire H eart’, which is the lead sin gle f rom his album ‘M oon Landing’ and peak ed at number one on the iTunes single chart. It also debuted a t number fi ve on the ARIA sin gles chart, and the music v ideo already has almost four million views. Blunt first rose to acclaim seven years ago when he released the the smash singles ‘You’re B eautiful’ and ‘ Goodbye M y Lover’ f rom his pla tinum sellin g recor d ‘Back to B edlam’, which w ent on to become one of the best-selling albums of the decade in the United Kingdom.

REVIEW

Grease is set to dance its way to success

Friday 25 October 2013 the inner city weekender

P

roducer J ohn F rost brin gs back ‘Grease’ every few years for a v ery smart commerc ial reason – it’s an easy sell. The music al, c reated in 1971 and brough t to public prominenc e thanks to the 1978 iconic film v ersion, is a regular in Frost’s repertoire and one he can bank on to steady the ship in constant tough, unpredictable times for musicals. This latest incarnation at The Star has all the fun y ou’d e xpect f rom wha t’s essentially a feel- g ood f rolic through the great music of the 1950 ’s rock ‘n ’ roll era, but certainly lacks a certain spark tha t may leave audiences feeling a little underwhelmed. Rob Mills puts in a solid performance as Dann y, but Gretel S carlett’s S andy is clearly much stronger – which is to be e x-

pected, given her strict and lengthy musical theatre background. Credited as a ‘risin g star’ in most of the promotion surrounding the musical, Scarlett has ac tually been treading the boards for some time, though this w ould be her biggest break. She really rises to the fore w ith ‘H opelessly D evoted to Y ou’ in the second ac t, which shows off her supreme vocal skills, and she rocks the finale in tha t lea thertight outfi t made famous b y Oli via Newton John in the film. There’s some great star turns from Todd McKenney, Anthony Callea and Bert Newtown, but the real highlight performance belongs to Lucy Maunder as Rizzo. She exudes talent – brilliant vocals, superb acting and a totally commandin g stage presence throughout the show.

GREASE NOW PLAYING AT THE STAR ‘Grease’ may no longer be able to ma tch it with musical powerhouses like ‘Wicked’ or the forthcomin g tour of ‘L es Miserables’, but it remains a great party show.

Frost is again on a commerc ial w inner – but don ’t expect the c ritics to be o verly kind. ‘Grease’ is no w playing at The Star . Book tickets at www.showbiz.com.au.

A tale of self discovery ... on the edge

BASIL NAIMET @ICWJournalist

tory primed for demoli tion as he ponders taking his own life. But when he gets to the top, he discovers a homeless man has already tak en residence there. The homeless man demands to know what Edward it is up to. What f ollows is a p air w ho s earch f or each others’ reasons as to why they are on top of the buil ding, which w ill ultimately determine their fate. This is the plot of the la test play showing at the King Street Theatre in Newtown, called ‘The Maintenance Room’. It’s a drama filled pla y but hilarious a t the same time with a serious message. Award w inning playwright Gar y Greenland said he was inspired to wri te the script after w itnessing the devastating effect that loss had on a friend. “People fall in to very dark places when

they lose fai th in themselv es, in others and in life itself,” he remarked. “Rational thinkin g disappears and e xistence i tself seems poin tless. R egaining hope and trust in something, or someone, however small, is the life-raft that can rescue them from disaster. “I w anted to w rite a p lay t hat w ould make audiences laugh, y et still engage them t o s hare th at da rk j ourney, a nd t o help them hear in others tha t hidden cry for a life-raft.” Mr Greenland wri tes for thea tre, radio and screen and his short plays are regularly performed overseas, winning a number of prestigious awards. Featuring ac tors Kim Knuck ey and Lynden Jones, this is a story about trust in others and the struggle to regain it after all faith has been stripped away. The sho w is bein g put on b y Emu P roductions in association with GKA Productions and is sure to enthrall audiences. Directed b y Allan W alpole and assisted by Christine Greenough, the charac ters in this play are relatable and entertaining. ‘The Maintenance Room’ plays at Newtown’s Kin g Street Thea tre f rom No vember 7 until November 30.

weekendergiveaway IT’S ONLY BEEN A FEW MONTHS SINCE Australia devastatingly lost the famous Ashes Urn for the second consecutive series. Fortunately, our Aussie cricketers don’t have to wait too long to try and win them back from the Poms with the Ashes series against England returning to our shores this summer. The Ashes Urn is the Holy Grail of cricket’s oldest and fiercest rivals. It was born from the burning of the bails following an historic Australian victory on English soil back in 1882. Since then it has been tradition that the two rival teams play for the rights to keep the ashes. Now, thanks to Cricket Australia, diehard fans can finally own a piece of Australian and English cricketing history with replica Ashes Urns now on sale at the Cricket Australia Official Online Store: shop. cricket.com.au. It means the Ashes can never be lost again: you’ll have them! The Urn is an exact re-creation of its prestigious real life inspiration. It is also beautifully displayed in a presentation tin and officially licensed and endorsed by Cricket Australia. It is the perfect gift in the lead up to Christmas to buy for your cricket crazy dad or grandpa. It will make an excellent addition to any memorabilia collection! The Weekender has three Cricket Australia Ashes Replica Urns (RRP $29.95) to give away. For your chance to win a replica

There is plenty of Big Brother talk There’s not long to go before a winner is finally crowned on ‘Big Brother’. There’s plenty of chatter that suggests Monday, November 4 will be this year’s finale date. So far the favourites to win the series are Tim, Tahan and Drew. Speaking of Tahan, her V8 Supercar boyfriend David Reynolds is defending claims he is using his popularity to help Tahan win.

I managed to catch the first episode of Rebel Wilson’s new show ‘Super Fun Night’ and I must say it was terrible. Not only was the storyline below average, Rebel should never have agreed to swap her funny Aussie accent and persona for an American one. Ratings for the show weren’t great with just 791,000 tuning in.

Channel Ten has signed up former ‘American Idol’ judge and 80’s pop star Paula Abdul as a judge on its rebooted ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ series. Abdul joins choreographers Jason Gilkison, Aaron Cash and Shannon Holtzapffel. ‘SYTYCD’ will air early 2014.

With Foxtel’s TV1 wrapping up at the end of the year a new channel has been announced to take its place. TV Hits will join Foxtel from Janurary 1, 2014. TV Hits will air classic shows like ‘Friends’, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, ‘CSI’ and ‘NCIS’.

Another new channel set to arrive on Foxtel next year is BBC First, however you will have to wait a fair while for this one. The new channel, which promises premium drama and comedy from the BBC will launch in August next year. The shows tipped to air include ‘The Musketeers’ and ‘The Fear’.

Channel Ten’s new ‘Wake Up’ breakfast program will begin on Monday, November 4 from 6.30am. The show, which has recently been on a whirlwind promotion tour around the country, will be recorded live from Manly Surf Lifesaving Club each morning.

Tougher Outback for 2014 balances comfort and practicality

automotive

Subaru sharpens it game with upgrades to its popular SUV option

W

idely regarded as a favourite in the Subar u rec reational range, the 2014 Outback SUV is set to combine r ugged stylin g c ues w ith i ts impressi ve AllWheel Drive ability. Some SUVs may look the part, but deep down they’re just not up to the task, however, this combina tion of prac ticality and style is set to have families queuing at the door to buy their new family car. “We’ve had a lot of customer feedback suggesting o wners w ould lik e a sligh tly tougher- looking O utback w ith g reater body protection,” said Nick Senior, Subaru Australia’s Managing Director. The 2014 Outback SU V offers families genuine dirt road credentials and superior handling, combined w ith refined passenger car comfort with the added assurance of an independent five-star occupant safety rating. The muscular upgrades include roof rails with in tegrated c ross bars, wheel arch guards, front and rear under body guard protectors, f ront mud f laps, dark grey front grille and alloy wheels, and sport headlights with black background. The bol d new e xterior sa ys ev erything you need to know about Outback – it is the real thing.

The MY14 Outback 2.0D Premium CVT. “These MY14 upgrades deli ver on both fronts and w ill help main tain Outback’ s profile as one of the most v ersatile and capable wagons on A ustralian roads,” Mr Senior said. “The introduction of the diesel auto var-

iant earlier this year combined with these latest chan ges highligh ts our lon g- term commitment to refinin g and enhanc ing our cars with the passing of each model year, in line with our ‘All 4 the Driver’ customer promise.”

Customers who don ’t wan t the full upgraded kit, which w ill be standar d on all Outback models ne xt y ear, w ill be gi ven the option of specifying just the roof rails, dark grey front grille, alloy wheels and the headlight upgrades.

Taking it to the world When players hit the field at the World Cup this weekend there will be familiar faces

F

or a small Rugby League club with limited resources and no licensed club of its own, the Newtown Jets will remarkably be making their presence felt in the Rugby League World Cup that starts in England and Wales this weekend. The oldest club in Australia, the Jets will have no few er than 30 c urrent and past pla yers appearing in the World Cup spread across 11 different national teams. Long-serving club director Terry Rowney says it is testimony to the quality of the club. “The large number of Jets alumni appearing in the 2013 World Cup is ironclad proof as to ho w well New town’s partnership w ith the S ydney Roosters is working, and what a productive role the Newtown club has and con tinues to play in the development of so many young players,” Mr Rowney said. “Many of these former J ets y oungsters ha ve gone on to play in the NRL and UK Super League competitions.” The J ets ha ve one former pla yer in the 2013

The Newtown Jets will have many former players on the field at the Rugby League World Cup. Australian World Cup squad, the mercurial Sydney R oosters back - rower B oyd Cor dner, who turned out in New town’s famous ro yal blue colours in 2009 and 2011. There are a total of eigh t pla yers w ith New town J ets heri tage in the Cook Islands W orld Cup squad, fi ve in the S amoan team and four in the Tongan line-up. There are even three for-

mer Jets named in the Scottish contingent. Mr Rowney added that there are also many former coaching staff in the World Cup. “The Jets have built up a sizable and dev oted following at Henson Park and are seen as an important part of the sporting and social fabric of inner-western Sydney,” he said. And they’re taking it to the world.
