Hope for Saxton Oval A back-down from organisers of the Cricket World Cup, by allowing the Auckland Nines event to go ahead, has locals hopeful there will be a similar back-down at Saxton Oval. Former Nelson City councillor Derek Shaw is a member of Athletics Nelson, and says he is

games being held next door. The exclusivity of the cricket oval, athletics track, pavilion and infield of the track, runs from 21 days prior to the first match until

ten days after the last one. But an exemption, to allow the NRL Nines to be held at Auckland’s Eden Park for three days during their same exclusivity period, has given Derek some hope that Athletics Nelson can also reach an agreement with world cup organisers. “People have be-

FROM PAGE 1 for a compromise.” Derek, one of three Athletics Nelson representatives to be involved in formal discussions with Nelson City Council, says the ideal solution would be a compromise of two or three days either side of the matches on February 16, February 19 and March 5, and use of the timing room for “one or two significant meets”. “That would enable a lot of athletics to still continue, the kids stuff right through to the senior Twilight Series meets and some of the bigger meets as well,” he says. “Track and field athletes definitely need access to the facilities there.”

It’s still unclear what the athletics track will be used for during the Cricket World Cup, although, during the Black Caps versus West Indies One Day International, the inside was used as a children’s entertainment area and the surrounds were used by food vendors. The exclusivity period would have huge disruptions for the senior athletes, who would be training for the New Zealand Track and Field Championship, including Commonwealth Games 1500m finalist Julian Matthews who returned home to train in the lead up to the event in summer. And Derek says there was some confusion from the two

major junior clubs – Richmond Athletics and Athletics Nelson – as to how they would work out a membership fee when the second half of the season might not even happen. A representative from Cricket World Cup is due in Nelson before the end of the month, but Derek was unsure whether Athletics Nelson will be involved in discussions with him. “We need to talk to council about that, whether we are involved in those discussions directly, but I’m not sure. We’ve certainly offered to help and have made submissions to council, which is part of what they’ll be presenting to Cricket World Cup.”

Police seeking help with Brook robbery

A security camera image of a man police would like to speak with, regarding the Brook St store robbery.

Nelson Police investigating a robbery at the Brook St Store last week have several leads, including a photo of a man who may be connected. At about 7.15pm last Thursday night, a male wearing a balaclava entered the Brook St Store. He demanded that the store assistant open the cash drawer and threatened to harm her if she did not cooperate.

They’re the pride of Nelson, and now a group of locals will head to the national Pride of New Zealand Awards in Auckland after winning their regional categories in Christchurch last week.

The awards are split into four regional groups, with the winners of the six categories in each region going on to the national finals on September 10. The finals will be judged by a

panel featuring broadcaster Judy Bailey, Willie Apiata VC, Sir Peter Leitch, TSB Bank CEO Kevin Murphy and APN New Zealand CEO Jane Hastings. Kyle says it was a great night in Christchurch. “It’s all been unexpected and a once-in-a-lifetime thing, really. It was really good to be a part of it.” Kyle says he’s looking forward to the national awards in Auckland next month. “Both Phil and I are really looking forward to it. We never expected to win anything, so are just enjoying it.”

Tahuna’s community centre expands Nelson City Council has paved the way for the Tahunanui Community Centre to expand. The centre currently occupies a building on Burrell Park, off Muritai St, but is crammed in with a preschool and has been needing more space for some time. Last week, the council’s community services committee came to their aid, recommending that the council lease and then buy a

building on Burrell Park which is owned by the Nelson Pacific Island Afternoon Study Programme. The recommendation is to make the building available to the Tahunanui Community Centre. NPIASP have owned the building since 2003 and lease the land it stands on from the council. Following the recent death of Jan Fa’avae, who was the driving force behind the NPIASP, activities within

the hall have dropped off and it is currently being used for storage. Deputy mayor Paul Matheson has brokered the deal with the groups involved and sees it as a win/win. “This allows the council to alleviate the financial stress on NPIASP at a very difficult time for the group. It will also support the important work being done by the centre.” The Tahunanui Community Centre cur-

Manager Judy Robinson says the building will make a huge difference to the Tahunanui community. “It will allow a much wider section of the community to access our centre.

A 22 year old patroller from Rainbow Ski Area took out Friday night’s Jib Jam at the Playhouse. With two tonnes of crushed ice brought in from Sealord’s, nine riders took up the unique opportunity to get some snow action a little closer to home, and to thrill a good serving of spectators at the same time. Jack Beattie, who wowed the crowd with a back flip early in the night, was named best skier and the overall winner, with 16 year old Phoenix Gallagher in second and named best snowboarder. Jeff Stein, a 21 year old snowboarder from Canada was third overall, with Jerusha Tucker taking home the award for best girl. The event was sponsored by Hogey’s Surf, Speights Summit and Placemakers, and was free for the first time, resulting in a much larger crowd. Organiser Nic Roland says it was “definitely the best Jib Jam yet”.

Arts fest turns 20 Nelson’s Arts Festival will celebrate 20 years this October, with 85 events over 12 glorious days. The programme for the festival was officially launched on Friday night, with tickets now on sale. The festival will run between October 16-27 and feature 85 events, from the popular masked parade to theatre, dance, music and comedy.

Among the highlights is a readers and writers session with Man Booker Award winner Eleanor Catton. Nelson City councillor Gaile Noonan says the council is very proud to present the country’s longest running regional arts festival. “The festival started as a small collection of events to support the World of Wearable Arts. Today, it is a sophisticated

12-day celebration, hosting up to 140 visiting artists and performers, and attracting 12,500 people to ticketed events.” Nelson Arts Festival Director Sophie Kelly, says this year’s birthday line-up includes a wide range of works to suit a whole combination of tastes. To book tickets, visit www.

Mission to feed for less recognised a gap in Tahuna for families to buy produce. With no supermarkets or places to buy vegetables he started a stall that ran once a week. It soon proved so popular the church decided to run it five days a week and they’ve been doing that for almost two years now. Matt says they do mark up their prices but only enough to cover costs and to pay him a small wage. All of the helpers are volunteers, as is most of Matt’s time. “There are no profits.

A tiny fruit and vegetable stall on Tahuna Drive is having a big impact, selling healthy food for bargain prices, often below the price they paid for it. The stall is run by the St Stephen’s Church and operates from the church’s front yard. It’s been running for almost two years and its coordinator, Matt Gray, says it’s all about providing cheap, healthy options for Tahuna families. “This is the church’s gift to the community. It’s about getting good food at an affordable price in the community. That’s why we do it.” The idea started when Matt

produce at a very low rate.” He says they do it for those families in Tahuna, but the stall has also become popular with people driving home from work, and Matt says that’s a side benefit. “We’re a Tahuna church so we’re here for our community first and foremost, but if others get to get some cheap veges as well then, why not? The more sold the better.” He says it hasn’t been easy with poor weather and some slow weeks making life tough, but watching families walk out with bags full of fresh and nutritious food makes it worthwhile.

Stellar first year for boxing club It’s been a heck of a year for the Victory Boxing Gym, but it’s warning that for it to be sustainable it now needs to start attracting sponsorship. One year after moving into its building on Vanguard St, the gym has doubled in numbers – and then doubled again. Each week hundreds of kids and teenagers head to the gym for a workout and new programmes have been included for high school students, sports teams, work groups and adult classes. The work the gym does has also attracted plenty of praise from parents, police and other community groups. But now the challenge will be to keep it afloat. The gym’s chairman Scott Gibbons says it has made fantastic progress, but not able to host a Fight 4 Victory fundraising event this year has dented the club’s financial coffers and they need some attention. “I’ve used the pun ‘on the ropes’. We’re on the ropes a bit

Andrew Board Editor

at the moment, we need some security long term, we need corporate support, we need charitable trust funding support and we need a [Fight 4 Victory] event,” he says. “Really, we have to be able to implement all three.” The team behind the gym have recently finished a five year business plan to make sure it will be sustainable and it’s just received charitable status, which means it will be able to start applying for funding. Scott says it’s extremely important that the club is able to attract funding, for the benefit of the community. “Otherwise these organisations fall over and it would be a travesty for that to happen. Where would all these kids go if the gym wasn’t here?” Along with Scott, Barry Galbraith and Paul Hampton have

been other key figures in the success of the gym to date. Paul runs most of the sessions and says watching the gym grow over the past year has been quite moving. “It’s a very different program to what we started with. It reaches a lot more of the community than I ever thought it would.” Paul says the positive impact on kids is the main motivator for him and his team of volunteers. “That’s what drives us. A lot of it isn’t fairy-tale stuff, there are some hard stories out there and some kids are really doing it tough. But our proudest moments are when a parent will come in and they’ve just had really tough times with their kids and Victory boxing is the place they feel good about.” Scott says it’s a long road ahead for the gym. “We’ve been so busy trying to run the programme, but now we need to start going out to the community and asking for support so this thing can be sustainable.”

Age Concern: We need to protect our elderly Nelson-Tasman has one of the fastest-growing elderly populations in the country, and that means agencies like Age Concern have never been busier. The four-strong team at Age Concern covers the whole Nelson and Tasman region and operates on a budget stitched together from government contracts, community fundraisers and grants from community trusts. For that, it delivers various educational seminars as well as its popular visitor service and elder-abuse prevention. Manager Sue Tilby says money is always a problem, so they’ve applied to win the Car Company $10,000 Charity Drive. “The older population is growing rapidly and in Nelson and Tasman it’s at a much higher rate [than nationally].” Age Concern has 80 volunteers that work on its accredited visitor service, where they visit lonely and isolated older people in the community. But the rapid rise of elder abuse means Age Concern is battling to keep the community educated on a tight budget.

Police report

style with Area Commander

Steve Greally

You may be aware that the Government has introduced the Land Transport Amendment Bill to lower the adult driver breath alcohol limit. This Bill creates a new offence for drivers with a breath alcohol level between 251 and 400mcg per litre of breath. The blood alcohol limit for this new offence is 50mg per 100ml of blood (0.05). The new limit will come into effect on 1 December. From then, drivers detected with a breath alcohol level between 251-400mcg will receive a fine and 50 demerit points. Drivers who accumulate 100 demerit points for any offences within a two year period will receive a three month driver licence suspension. For drivers detected at over 400mcg of alcohol per litre of breath the existing criminal sanctions apply. This new law is great news for Police and the general public. Alcohol contributes to about 30 percent of fatal road crashes. International research shows that lowering the adult drinkdriving limit will make a significant impact on reducing road deaths and injury. In New Zealand we’ve seen a cultural change around drink-driving and the vast majority of people have got the message that it’s not ok to drink and drive. Recent public surveys also indicate that the majority of people consider the current drink-driving limits to be too high. We all have to take responsibility for the decisions we make when we drive. My two bits of advice are: if you intend to drink always organise a sober driver or a taxi to get home and; don’t ever be shy about telling a friend you don’t think they should drive.

Just after the big new fence had been finished too, bet the owners had a fright when they heard that. The power pole must have knocked the footpath up too, I drove past earlier this week and someone had tripped on the lifted segment and injured themselves quite badly by the looks of it. There is a spray-painted warning on there today. Jeff McLaren. Totally the mothers fault! (Isn't it always!) She was the responsible, licenced person in the car. Karen Lewis. I am all for people learning how to drive, but come on, had her 11 year old sister in back seat not seatbelted. She hit windscreen, dog in car what the hell was her mother thinking...

I don't know why people insist on taking their dogs in cars anyway, it really annoys me when I see dogs in cars in supermarket carparks etc, a car ride is NOT exercise. Dez Tinee. Dogs are unpredictable and should be restrained in vehicles, doesn't matter what licence you have, it is a hazard! I've seen little dogs on people's knees while they are driving, what if it snapped at the driver giving them a fright and causing them to crash or lose concentration on the road? We don't let our little kids sit on our knees while driving. Wouldn't you do it for the dog safety anyway, if you cared about them so much? Jasmine Lucas.

BATON–ARTHUR POSSUM CONTROL AERIAL 1080 APPLICATIONS Vector Free Marlborough Ltd wishes to advise the public of its intention to aerially apply the toxin Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080) for the purpose of controlling possums in the Baton-Arthur area. The operation is being carried out under contract to TBfree New Zealand for the purposes of the National Bovine Tuberculosis Pest Management Plan.

Control Area: The Baton-Arthur treatment area consists of approximately 27,500 hectares in the eastern reaches of Kahurangi National Park and some adjacent or nearby private forest and farmland blocks west of the Motueka River, extending from the lower Wangapeka River to north of the Flora Carpark, including the eastern slopes of the Mt Arthur Range. A detailed map of the operational area can be viewed at the local Department of Conservation offices in Nelson, Motueka and Takaka between 9:00am and 4:00pm week days. If you require more specific details of the control area, please contact Vector Free Marlborough Ltd on the contacts below.

Commencement Date: The aerial application of cereal pellets containing Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080) will commence on or thereafter 23 August 2014.

Bait Description: Pre-feed: Cereal based pellet, approximately 30mm long, non-dyed (brown in colour).

Toxic bait: Cereal based pellet, approximately 30mm long, dyed green with a toxic loading of 1.5g/kg Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080).

Precautions: The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. Children should be kept under strict supervision in the operational area. Dogs should be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into the operational area as they are particularly susceptible to 1080 and poisoned carcasses. The risk of poisoning for dogs from carcasses may be in excess of six months depending on weather conditions, and may extend downstream from the control area. Wild animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this area until the area is declared clear of pesticides. Poison warning signs will be erected at all points of public access and the public are reminded that it is an offence to remove any of these signs. Please follow instructions on the signs.

For further information about the Baton-Arthur operation please contact

From small beginnings, Summit Property Management is now the largest and longest established specialist property management company in the region. Just over 20 years ago we began operating in Stoke, then over the years expanded into Nelson City and, backed by Stewart Henry who has over 30 years in the industry, opened outlets in Richmond, Motueka and Marlborough. Having local property managers in each area is a definite advantage to us and our clients; we are there when we are needed. The keys to making our property management business successful have been having strong business systems, strict control on who we place into properties and a zero tolerance to rent arrears. A strong focus on providing what our landlord clients expect from a professional property manager brought out the need for frequent communication, and we have always been hot on honest feedback. We care about our reputation so our clients know that we will look after them and their investment. Best of all, we don’t have any add-on fees. Since he and his family arrived in Nelson in 1977, Vern has been a successful and highly-qualified life and disability insurance adviser. He is an Authorised Financial Adviser and holds the internationally recognised insurance qualification, Chartered Life Underwriter.

As Vern’s clients will testify, he is extremely thorough, an important requirement for any financial adviser. If you choose to work with Vern he will: • Highlight the financial impact on you and your family or your business, should death or disability occur • Prepare a full written report (risk management plan) outlining your potential vulnerability and recommend sound, well-thought-out solutions • Assist you in putting your plan in place • Regularly review your programme to ensure it meets your current needs • Most importantly, should the worst happen, he will personally manage your claim with your insurer. To top it off, Vern is easy and relaxed to work with, making you feel comfortable and confident when putting your programme in place.

shop for everything; hiring, buying and servicing. They cater for everyone’s needs and budgets with exclusive, good quality, affordable products that will last. They have always had access to a range of baby items which can be seen on their website, but the bigger store now means they can stock more ranges, including their exclusive Outnabout Buggy range. The list of the top-quality products Baby on the Move stock includes everything from car seats and accessories, cots, bedding, buggy’s, swaddles, breast pumps, high chairs, front packs, protective clothing, nurs-

ery furniture to toys and much, much more. But what really makes Baby on the Move stand apart from the rest is their knowledge on everything they sell. "People think they want something but we can often direct them to something cheaper and better to suit their needs,” says Craig. “Our suppliers and manufacturers back it up too; a lot of product that we have has a five year guarantee on it, especially the buggy’s. And we do great package deals where you can get your feeding bottles and breast pumps, your cot, buggy and your capsule for a bulk deal, just to help a little bit.” Baby on the Move are also child restraint certified technicians, which means we are qualified to install and sell child restraint equipment. “Nothing to do with child restraints goes out of the store in a box. It’s always tested to make sure it fits properly and anybody who purchases a seat from here gets lifetime installation free; it doesn’t cost anything, so they can call back 10 or 15 times a week, it doesn’t matter,” says Craig. “Some customers think they are a pain coming back to get their car seats re-installed, but we say to them we’d sooner they came back because there’s nothing worse than driving around with a loose seat.” Craig says that up to 89 per cent of child restraints are still installed incorrectly, which is too high a number. “We’re brave enough to say this really isn’t fitting the car properly, and we’ll try another solution until we find the correct restraint. We have chosen to be child restraint technicians and we renew that every two years, which means being fully up-to-date with each new seat that enters the market so we know what it can and can’t do. All the products are great but everything has a limitation, and people need to be aware about what that is. A buggy, for instance, might not lie flat, which can be bad for some people.” Hiring products is also a useful option for parents to be and Baby on the Move has pretty much everything

Murchison disasters Murchison, or Hampden as it was first known, has had more than its share of disasters. The original township was built on a low flat formed by the junction of the Matakitaki and Buller Rivers. In 1878

a massive flood swept away many buildings which were rebuilt on higher ground where Murchison is today. Major floods in 1888 and 1926 saw roads and bridges rebuilt each time before the 1929 earthquake destroyed them again.

Financing Futures is conveniently located on Songer St, and has easy access from the main road making it central to their whole client base The world of finance is a daunting one and many people struggle to understand and undertake the processes required to get finance for their particular venture. Financing Futures is an exciting new business that can make this process easy and simple for anyone from first home buyers to property investors and commercial business owners. Financing Futures owner, Tony Hall, has had 18 years experience as a mortgage broker and 17 years in banking before that, while his Lending Administration Manager, Rebecca Wilkens, also has over 20 years banking experience. His knowledge of business finance stems from a successful company in Australia, the business model of which is now being replicated here in Nelson with the aim of improving people’s financial positions for the future. “At the moment we are mainly focused on home loans but we have a lot of expertise in the commercial area with equipment finance, commercial property and business finance. That is an area we feel is a little underserviced in Nelson at present, and we hope to be able to get involved with local businesses and help them with all their financial

needs” says Tony. Buying a home is probably one of the most significant decisions you will make in your life and it is important that you understand what is happening at every step during the process. Financing Futures can help every home buyer with financing, and their focus on educating the client makes them particularly valuable for first home buyers and property investors. “We learn who they are, what they want and where they are going, and then we make sure they understand what they are getting into and what we’re going to achieve for them,” says Tony. “The whole application process for our clients is free, we don’t hand them the forms and send them away to sort it out themselves.’ In fact, all of their services are free, and unlike others, if the loan is not approved you won’t find yourself stuck with a big bill at the end. “If someone comes to talk to us, we won’t charge them anything. If we can’t get the loan, it doesn’t cost them anything. We give advice, arrange the loan and then we receive payment from bank. Because we are focused on the client’s needs, the loan we recommend will be what we think is best and not necessarily what

Three-peat for Richmond Rabbits

The Richmond Rabbits have gone where no other TRL side has gone before, winning their third title in a row and finishing the entire season undefeated. The Rabbits managed to score two tries and a drop goal in the final ten minutes, to beat an emotional Tahunanui Tigers team 39-28 in the grand final at Trafalgar Park on Saturday. Rabbits captain Hoani Takao says ti-

tle number three is a “huge” achievement for the club, who have maintained their record of winning every year they’ve been in the competition. “It’s sort of unheard of to come through with a threepeat and to go through undefeated is huge,” he says. “We knew that our undefeated record would have meant nothing if we had lost today, but we came through and I’m just so proud of the boys.”

LESLIE POSSUM CONTROL AERIAL 1080 APPLICATIONS Public notice is hereby given that on or thereafter 23rd August 2014 Vector Free Marlborough Ltd intends to apply by aerial application sodium fluoroacetate (1080) cereal pellet baits for possum and predator control in the area as described below:

Leslie Land Area Description

The TRL grand final was played in front of the largest number of spectators to ever watch a game of rugby league in Nelson, and the performance from both teams did the occasion justice. It was a day of mixed emotions for the Tigers club, who came within ten minutes of winning their first-ever title. Kasi Sami and Sami Sami — two integral members of the squad — received news that their grandfather had passed away, while the team was travelling to Trafalgar Park, and had to withdraw from the squad. But the two brothers showed up in the second half, just as the Tigers edged ahead 28-26. Coach Lance Broomfield was “very proud” of his team. “We worked really hard to get to where we are. They were favourites to win and we just had to get them on the day, but unfortunately they were too good.” In an incredible act of toughness, Tapu Laiseni of the Tigers horribly severed his ear in the first half and returned to the field, only going to hospital once the game had finished.

The area is approximately 20,500 hectares to the west of the Mt Arthur Range and entirely within Kahurangi National Park. The operation in this area, which encompasses the Leslie and part of the Karamea River catchments, is being carried out under contract to the Department of Conservation for biodiversity protection purposes as part of the ‘Battle For Our Birds’ programme. If you require more specific details of the control area, please contact Vector Free Marlborough Ltd on the contacts below.

The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. Children should be kept under strict supervision in the above area. Dogs must be kept under control at all times. The risk of poisoning for dogs from carcasses may be in excess of six months depending on weather conditions, and may extend downstream from the control area. Wild animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this area until the area is declared clear of pesticides. A detailed map of the operational area can be viewed at the local Department of Conservation offices in Nelson, Motueka, Takaka, Westport, and Greymouth between 9:00am and 4:00pm week days.

Nelson in Press Cup semis

Nelson College first XV are back in the Press Cup semi-finals, but this year they won’t have to combat a difficult away-trip to Christchurch. Nelson College, who finished second on the table after the round robin matches, will instead host defending champions Marlborough Boys’ College this Saturday — the team that beat them in the final last year. In the other semi-final, the undefeated Christchurch Boys’ High School will host Timaru Boys’ High School, Nelson College first XV centre Tima Fain- after they sneeked past St Bede’s Colgaanuku, dives over for a try in Thursday’s lege to seal the final playoff spot.

Asomua-Goodman, who scored an impressive try in Thursday’s 22-0 win over Waimea College, was happy his side were able to secure a home semi-final. “There’s a little bit of added pressure when you’re playing at home,” he says. “Last year, we didn’t have anything to lose [and managed to beat St Bede’s], but it’s always good to get that home field advantage. We’re pretty confident the boys can take it one step further than we did last year. We need to believe.” Nelson College will host Marlborough Boys’ College on Saturday. Kick off is at 12noon.

Veteran cyclist Chris Nicholson may have secured the King of the Hill title on Saturday but he couldn't quite match Jason Thomsen for consistency over three months of racing in the Tasman Wheelers Plus4 Insurance winter road cycling series. Chris was first to the finish on top of the Aniseed Valley Hill in Saturday's final race but had to settle for second in the series, 11 points behind Jason who won six of the 11 races. The B grade competition was just as close with Henry Kersten winning Saturday's race to edge out Brent Sturm in the series by just nine points. However, the Sturm family did secure C grade honours with Brent's son, Jacob, winning four of the 11 races to finish on 101 points well clear of second-placed Ken Banner on 73. It was a top result for 13-year-old Jacob who is in his first season of racing with the Tasman Wheelers. The series was also a family affair for the Fultons with Karen recording three thirds racing in B grade to win the women's series on 110 points, 11 ahead of Ann Rigg. Karen's daughter Shaane was fourth in the women's competition just ahead of her grandmother Christine van Hoppe who finished sixth. Karen's husband Dean was fifth in A grade while her father Karl van Hoppe was ninth in D grade. Robert Ross won D grade and Willem Stein won E grade. The series attracted almost 200 riders with between 70 and 90 racing on a weekly basis.

Jacks and Richmond battle to a stalemate Richmond Sleepers and Jacks Silver had an intense encounter in their Grade 3 game. Contrary to their name, Sleepers hit the ground running courtesy of some nice long range shooting by Tash Martin. Both teams were forced into offensive turnovers early with Jenna French at centre and Shara Higgins at WD for Richmond spoiling numerous attacking moves by Jacks. Abbie Murrell was strong on the rebound and quick to outlet the long pass. Richmond were 9-6 up, and took their foot off the pedal ever so slightly. Jacks pounced, picking

up the speed of the game on attack. Circle defenders, Katie Lay and Joanna Clapcott, gave Jacks their extra scoring opportunities with five turnovers, which were converted with an excellent shooting display by Louise Wealleans and Maree Claridge. Richmond were one in arrears at the major break and made a defensive change, with Abbie moving to goal keep and Hannah McCullock moving out to goal defence, which immediately paid dividends. With more space to move, Hannah pulled in a couple of beautiful intercepts and linked well through court with her at-

tackers. Annie Ewers-Kennedy at wing attack had a huge work rate, both off the line and through court, linking nicely with her offensive line. The third quarter belonged to Richmond with their diminutive goal attack Kath McCauley to the fore, driving to space well for free shots on goal. The game was anyone’s going

into the last ten minutes - and it looked as though Richmond were going to pull away. A nervous start by the Jacks' attack saw three clean intercepts by Jenna early in the quarter, to move two in front. Not to be outdone Katie – with her height advantage – smothered the Richmond attackers and picked off three intercepts of her own, which were converted by Louise at the other end. Jacks' Mel Beattie at centre and Claire McNutt at wing defence had solid games, working hard to

provide drive through court. Katie topped the list, having a high work rate for the entire match and putting up great numbers on the stat sheet, to finish the game with four intercepts, six rebounds and three tips. Kath was a standout for Richmond, scoring 19 of her teams 26 goals, along with Jenna at centre who provided plenty of pressure defence and timely attacking play. The final score was 26 all, which was a good indication of a wellfought match.
