Swans’ second half surge

STRATFORD pulled away after a competitive first half to run out a comfortable winner over Orbost-Snowy Rovers in round five of East Gippsland football.
Nanjing Night Net

Trailing by one point after a low scoring first half, the Swans booted seven goals in the third term to set up the 13.13 (91) to 8.8 (56) victory.

The Blues held a narrow eight-point advantage at quarter-time before Stratford kicked the only goal of the second term to go into the main change one point in arrears.

As they did last week, the Swans again made their move in the third quarter.

Mobile ruckman Kaine Kerton continued his fine form in giving his midfielders first use, with Taylor Tatterson, Tye Morrison, Lachlan Dobson and Rowan Marsden getting their hands on the football to give good supply to Keiran O’Dwyer, who finished with another bag of five goals.

Both sides kicked three goals in the final quarter with Stratford running out 35-point winner to keep a hold on third spot on the ladder.

The Swans sit one game behind ladder leader Paynesville, with percentage separating them from the second-placed Lucknow.

Magpies win thriller

LUCKNOW pulled off a thrilling victory over Lindenow, 14.18 (102) to 14.15 (99).

The Magpies were boosted by the inclusion of former West Coast and Carlton player Callum Chambers, who returned home for the week to see family.

Lindenow made the early break, taking a 14-point lead into half-time before the Magpies hit back in the third term, booting six goals to three.

The Cats hit back with five goals in the final quarter, only to fall three points short.

David Donchi booted three goals in a best on ground performance, while he had support from Shaun Ryan and Gary Jones, who also kicked three goals.

John Dick continued his good form for the Cats with five majors.

Seagulls let lead slip

LAKES Entrance is still searching for its first win, letting a 20-point half-time lead slip against Wy Yung.

The Seagulls could only manage two goals to the Tigers’ seven after half-time to go down by 10 points, the Tigers 11.11 (77) to 9.13 (67).

Matt Counahan kicked four goals for the Tigers, while James Beha booted five majors for Lakes Entrance.

PAYNESVILLE had the bye.

Rugby league career beckons

Just a big boy and his ball: Obed Kahwin and his passport to a new life. Picture: Gene RamirezMANY hear the call beckoning rugby league stardom but few are chosen.
Nanjing Night Net

Junior representative teams, the Holden Cup, the NRL itself . . . Obed Kahwin has heard the call and has the ambition.

“And he’s not afraid to tell you,” said Steve Warwick, of Kahwin’s Blacktown PCYC club.

What’s more, Kahwin has indeed been called.

The 16 year old is in the Parramatta under/17 development squad.

This would make him just another young player with dreams and potential except for his background.

Kahwin is from Liberia, on the west coast of Africa and lives in Doonside with his mother and younger brother.

His origin was recognised when he was chosen in the Africa United team for the recent washed-out Harmony Sevens at Redfern Oval.

It wasn’t a complete washout, however.

Kahwin was then chosen as Africa’s representative in the NSW All Stars U/17 team that played the touring Auckland Vikings in Cabramatta.

Mentored by Dean Widders, Nathan Hindmarsh and Hazem El Masri, the All Stars combined Fijian, Maori, indigenous, Lebanese, Maltese, African, Samoan and Mediterranean cultures.

They represented the literal and figurative changing face of rugby league. Kahwin got a big kick; he scored the All Stars’ first try.

“He was very proud of that,” said Warwick.

“He’s made big inroads in the five years he’s been playing.

“He’s a utility who can play from centre to prop.

“He ‘s built like guys in gyms but it’s natural, he doesn’t work out in gyms.

“He’s well over six feet and over 90kg. He’s a pure athlete and loves rugby league.”

Warwick said that passion came through in his devotion to the club.

“He’s good with the kids, will stand around all day watching the games and man the barbecue.

“He’s a real helper and a great support for his mum.”

In other words, he conforms to Warwick’s words about team play: “the best thing about sport is that it’s a great cultural builder.

“It allows people to learn about each other.”

Outrage at no-go lanes for women

Source: Illawarra Mercury
Nanjing Night Net

Vivienne Moxham-Hall would love to compete in winter swimming championships, but her hopes have been frozen due to a rule that excludes women.

Women are not allowed to take part in the competition because six of the eight clubs in the South Coast Winter Swimming Association have voted against women becoming members.

President Bill Steele said most of the association’s eight clubs “just weren’t interested” in expanding to include women.

Mr Steele is also president of the Austinmer Otters, one of the six clubs that voted a couple of years ago against allowing membership for women, meaning women who are members in the other two clubs can’t swim in the association championships.

“We just seem to think it’s our little right to have our own club,” he said.

As the clubs prepare for the season, Ms Moxham-Hall and her other women members at the Stanwell Park Sea Eels will have to be content with sitting on the sidelines cheering their male teammates on.

“I think it is absolutely crazy that even though I am a member of a winter swimming club, I can’t compete because of my gender and it makes me very, very angry – and it’s frustrating,” the 23-year-old said.

Barry McGuinness, a captain at the Sea Eels, said: “It comes up fairly regularly and it just gets shot down in flames, and they don’t give a reason.”

A spokesman for the Wollongong Whales wrote: “I believe that it is in the South Coast Association minutes and constitution that the championships are for male members only. Each club has their individual constitution that may allow for ladies and children to be members of their own clubs.”

The president of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board, Stepan Kerkyasharian, said because it was a voluntary association it would not be bound by anti-discrimination laws.

Kiesha’s stepfather jailed

The man who stood by and watched as his six-year-old stepdaughter, Kiesha Weippeart, died from violent injuries, and then burned and buried her body, has been sentenced to at least 12 years in jail.
Nanjing Night Net

Robert Smith, 34, knew that his stepdaughter, Kiesha had suffered a serious head injury on July 13, 2010, but failed to give her medical attention or call for help, leaving her to die a day later.

In sentencing judge Megan Latham’s words, Smith then “assumed the primary role in the destruction and burial of the deceased’s body”.

The 34-year-old placed his stepdaughter’s body in a suitcase and left it there for a full week before taking her in a taxi to a different address.

From there, he took the child’s body to parkland in the nearby suburb of Shalvey, doused her with petrol and set her alight.

He then put her remains in a shallow grave, placing a discarded pouch above it in an attempt to throw off police.

Though the exact cause of the six-year-old’s death is not known, a postmortem later revealed that she had recently sustained a violent blow to the head.

She had a number of partially healed fractures suggesting a long history of abuse.

Smith pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of the girl on the grounds of gross criminal negligence and to being an accessory after the fact of murder.

Another person is awaiting trial for murder and cannot be named.

Justice Latham said that the manslaughter charge fell into the “most serious category” , and that she “could not recall a more serious case of accessory to murder after the fact”.

“The loss of consciousness in a six-year-old would move all but the most callous of adults to seek medical attention, let alone someone who claimed to see that child as a daughter,” she said.

“The act of burning the body was particularly heinous.”

Her honour sentenced Smith to a maximum sentence of 16 years with a minimum non parole period of 12 years.

With time served he will be eligible for parole in April 2023.

It’s pretty unbelievable when Wests fans roar

Tiger for life: Benji Marshall has no doubt what club he wants to finish his NRL career at. Picture: Matt Roberts, Getty ImagesASKED if he could imagine what it would be like running out on to Campbelltown Stadium in an opposition jersey, Benji Marshall — the man known for his footwork — didn’t sidestep the question.
Nanjing Night Net

“It won’t happen, mate,” he said.

In an interview with the Hills News, Marshall gave the clearest indication yet that he was set to remain at the Tigers’ lair for his playing life.

After securing the signature of captain Robbie Farah until the end of 2017, the focus has shifted to locking in the club’s other star playmaker beyond his current contract which expires at the end of 2015.

If all goes to plan, Marshall will continue to dazzle home crowds at his two favourite stadiums for the rest of his NRL career.

“I love playing at Campbelltown,” he said.

“My two favourite places to play: Campbelltown and Leichhardt — no doubt.

“With Leichhardt the people are so close and at Campbelltown the fans come close enough to the field to feel like they’re on the field anyway.

“I don’t think many people like travelling out here especially if they’re coming from Manly or somewhere [like that] but I love coming out here.

“I made my debut at Campbelltown and I’ve had great support from the people out here ever since.”

Admission prices at Campbelltown were reduced after a poor attendance. Despite the cheaper tickets only 11,547 turned up to watch the Tigers take on the Brisbane Broncos on April 27.

Marshall said the size of the crowd had an effect on the players’ performance.

“Honestly, the atmosphere and the crowd makes a difference,” he said.

“When you’re struggling for that penalty to get you out of your own half or you’re struggling for a bit of motivation, when you have the crowd behind you pumping you up it’s pretty unbelievable.”

Injured prop Keith Galloway agreed.

“Obviously the more people there are, the louder it’s going to be and when we see the colours in the hills and in the grandstands, it’s a big lift for us,” he said.

“When it’s filled up and it’s loud, it’s roaring for us.”

Songbirds of country

Ladies of CountryTHE hooting, hollering and the whistling will all be on display when The Ladies of Country take to the stage at Blacktown Workers Club on Saturday, May 25.
Nanjing Night Net

The show pays tribute to three legendary female country singers — Dolly Parton, Shania Twain and Patsy Cline.

Wynonah Dove, who performs as Dolly Parton in the show, said audiences could expect a bigger and better performance.

“We have quite a bit of audience interaction,” Dove said.

“We have added in new songs and added songs that us girls have done together.

“We have a great finale and we are doing a tribute to Kasey Chambers and Catherine Britt.”

Dove began impersonating Parton in 2003 after being told she sounded like the legendary singer.

“I was a singer-songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee, and I kept getting from folks that I sounded like Dolly Parton,” Dove said.

“I thought ‘well it might not work in commercial country if I sound like her so I might as well pay tribute to her’.

“It just kind of snowballed from there and it just built.”

Dove is an actress, Appalachian vocalist, songwriter and musician.

Career highlights include a starring role in a production by The Trail of the Lonesome Pine State Outdoor Drama in Virginia in the US.

She has toured with an Appalachian theatre ensemble, starred in a film, Class Action, and performed around the world.

Dove’s career took inspiration from Parton’s success in the entertainment industry.

“Dolly for me is a really personal thing because I love her so much,” Dove said.

“She is an icon, a mentor and she really has been a role model for me.

“She really knows her music, especially [folk] and that really holds true for me.”

Panthers slump to third-straight defeat

THE Monaro Panthers slumped to a third-successive Men’s Premier League defeat on Sunday, going down 3-1 to the AustralianInstituteof Sport at the AIS.
Nanjing Night Net

Two goals in four minutes midway through the first-halfset up the AIS’ victory after Dylan Smith opened the scoring for the home side in the 21st minute.

It wasn’t long before the youngsters were celebrating again as Bai Antoniou netted for the third time in four National Premier League: Capital Football matches.

The Panthers are made of sturdy stuff this season and their coaching staff of Njegosh Popovich and Frank Cachia would have been proud of the response they got from their charges, especially in the second half.

Pepe Varga has enjoyed his status as a regular Premier League starter at the Panthers and got his team back into the match in the 56thminute with his third goal of the season.

That goal prompted hopes of an unlikely Monaro comeback but they were quickly quashed as Smith reacted sharpest in a crowded goalmouth to notch his second and the AIS’ third to put the game beyond the visitors.

Monaro kept pushing and fought to the very end. If they can repeat this level of commitment in forthcoming weeks thenmore wins are surely on the way.

Monaro Panthers:

1. James BRADBURY, 2. Sam OSATTO, 4. Jonathon REIS, 5. Tom CROSSLEY, 8. Tom McLACHLAN, 9. Pepe VARGA, 11. Jon TOOLE, 12. Danny BYRNE, 13. Adrian CANIZARES, 15. Tyson COTTAM and17.Sam LAVELLA.Substitutes used:14. Cameron DALZELL, 16. Ed McCARTHY and33. Daniel WHITEHORN

RDFL: Stars align for interleague tilt

BARRY Hall has been named in a star-studded Riddell District interleague squad for its showdown with the Kyabram District league this month.
Nanjing Night Net

Hall may be the ‘‘name’’ player of the squad, but more significantly, the bulk of the league’s leading talent has put its hand up to play in the RDFL’s return to representative football.

Only five of the starting 18 named in last year’s RDFL team of the year are missing from coach Matt Power’s squad. Hall is just one of 60 players in the squad, with at least three from every club called to assemble for training in the coming weeks.

The KDFL is no stranger to colourful full-forwards, having been the competition of choice in recent times for Shane Loveless, Perry Meka andAaron James.

Prolific goalkicker Matt Davidson of Romsey, Diggers Rest forward Brent Tuckey and 2009 Bowen medallist Aaron Blade are among the key inclusions in the squad. The KDFL and RDFL are the lowest ranked leagues in the AFL Victoria Country Championships and will have a chance to move up the rankings at Tatura Showgrounds on May 25.

The under-18 team was named last week. Netball squads for seniors and under-17s are expected to be announced this week.


Macedon: James Wright, Jason Davies, Nick Arnold

Rupertswood: Leigh Brennan, Mitch Gaunt, Thomas West, Todd Podolczak

Diggers Rest: Brent Tuckey, Stuart Clarke, Adam Richardson, John Ryan, Shaun Sims, Craig Marshall, Dylan Hannan, Brandon Kilty

Riddell: Matt Sammut, Paul Sahlberg, Daniel Sahlberg, Aaron Blade, James Climas, Nick Ash, Ethan Foreman

Sorrento icon set to post a $2m sale

HOW much would you pay to have a slice of history? Sorrento’s iconic post office building is on the market and for a spare couple of million it could be yours.
Nanjing Night Net

Built in 1905, the building showcases Australia’s rich heritage.

The property has already attracted substantial interest, RT Edgar real estate agent Lloyd Robinson said.

“It will be sold based on expressions of interest and it will be up to those who purchase it to work around the heritage requirements,” he said.

Local icon: Sorrento post office.

Mr Robinson said there was the possibility for a number of retailers to share the space.

“I think its visual impact will stay the same but the layout may be altered inside.”

A postmaster’s quarters at the rear of the building will be included in the sale.

“At one stage there was a permit approved for units at the back, but that would be for the new owner to go through the necessary processes if they wanted to develop the site.”

While Mr Robinson estimated the property would sell in the realm of the high $2 million mark, he conceded it was difficult to put a price tag on it.

“It is hard when it hasn’t been sold in more than 100 years.

“This is one of the best locations in the street with an interesting part of the history in Sorrento so trying to establish its value is very difficult. Its value will be decided in the next few weeks by the interested parties.”

Mr Robinson said the heritage of the building only added to its appeal.

“I think most people are attracted to its heritage status. If Sorrento was made up of new white blocks of buildings it wouldn’t have nearly the attraction.

“I’m sure whoever buys the post office will have good funds behind them to create good outcomes.”

An Australia Post spokeswoman said the building’s heritage would be maintained.

“Australia Post understands the historical significance of the building to the community, and as a heritage-listed building, this will always be protected,” she said. “Money from the sale of Australia Post owned buildings is reinvested in the organisation.”

The postboxes at the old building will be relocated to the Sorrento Newsagency, which took over as a licensed post office last July.

Construction of the new postboxes is expected to start in the coming weeks.
