Epifania proud of his squad

The players Epifania assembled at Carrington Park quickly adapted to new combinations and produced some slick football on their way to a 34-18 victory.

While the big Western forward pack hit hard in defence, FIRLA’s speed around the ruck and support play gave them the edge.

“They got into us, but we expected that, you don’t come out to the country and expect anything less,” Epifania said.

“I thought both sides had a real red hot dig, but I was very happy with things from our side. We have got one side that is going overseas for the [World Cup]qualifiers over in Europe and these boys here are our level one players.

“We had to fill in some numbers here, we had topull a side together in a week and the boys did really well I thought in making that happen.

“Some of these players here are younger fellas and later down the track, they will come into that top team.”

Though having to draw on players unfamiliar to himself and each other, the quality Epifania had in key positions was telling

Fullback Christian Bate (Belrose), hooker Daniel Petralia (Canterbury), plushalves Josh Bergamin (Canterbury) and Blake Cavelarro (Western Suburbs) were standouts.

Cavelarro amassed a personal tally of 22 points from three tries andfive goals.

Plenty of promise but Rams fail Italian job

Nanjing Night Net

Both sides used the Carrington Park clash as a means of viewing players with potential headed into, for the Azzurri, the 2017 World Cup and, for Maranda’s Rams, next year’s country championship.

On that note, FIRLA’sChristian Bate and halfback Blake Cavelarro gave Italian selectors plenty to think about in the lead-up to next year’s World Cup, the latter scoring 22 of his side’s points in a stunning display.

While, for the hosts, forwards Luke Thompson, Simon Osborne and Brent Seager poured through a mountain of work and Parkes fullback Sam Dwyer was brilliant, earning the FIRLA’s vote as player of the game.

While disappointed, Maranda said it was important to look at the positives, such as the exciting performances of debutantsMitch Burke of Forbes, Lithgow’s Mitch Case and Orange CYMS pivot Dom Maley.

“There’s plenty of good players around,we’re asking them to put their hand up when we have training and to bring the right attitude,” Maranda said.

“We’re not here for one game, we want to make friendships out of it and build to win country championships and get back into that tier one where we should be.”

Western drew first blood against FIRLA, Forbes’ try-scoring gun Ben Maguire muscling his way over from close range to gift the hosts a 6-0 lead.

Ethan Natoli hit back for FIRLA, but a crafty Jacob Neill grubber for himself after 30 minutes put the Rams up 12-6.

Enter Cavelarro.

Leaning on a game revolving around lightning quick footwork and superb support play, the Western Suburbs Magpies No.7 scored two tries in the lead-up to half-time to make it 18-12.

Josh Bergamin extended the lead after the break before Maley got one back,but Cavelarro and Natoli iced the win with tries in the final 15 minutes for the Azzurri.

Having been part of a winning country championship campaign with Western in 2003,Maranda knows the key to success at a rep footy level is composure, something the Rams slightly lacked on Saturday.

“Our completions probably let us down, that was probably a big thing that hurt us which is probably the same thing that let us down at Narellan,” he said.“It’s something for us to work on, and probably a good opportunity to get a few debutantes in there to have a look at.”

Bathurst double at the annual junior classic

Nanjing Night Net

Bathurst achieved the double in male and female winners at the Bathurst Junior Classic golftournament on Sunday forthe first time since 2013.

Top talented golfers from around the Central West took part in the tournament and in the end it was 14-year-old Ben Mackey for the males and 13-year-old Casey Thompson for the females taking top honours.

Scott Matheson and Emma McCarthy were successful the last timethe Bathurst Golf Club achieved a double at the tournament.

Defending champions James Conranof Duntryleague and Emma McCarthy of Bathurstwere unable to defendtheir crown, paving the way for two first-time winners.

Even though the tournament is held in Bathurst, locals have struggled to dominate,with only six local winners since 2000 in the males and eight local winners since 2000 in the females.

Mackey was humble after his victory, saying it was not his best performance, but happy with the win either way.

“I did not play all that well, but in the end I got there,” Mackey said.

“Back nine I played pretty well, but front nine I struggled to keepwhat I had, but I came through in the end.”

Competition was tough on the day, with Mackey’s play partner competing with him neck-and-neck through the day, until his play partner gave away a hole at the 16th hole.

It was notMackey’s best performance in golf –he hashitlower scores in other tournaments than his 77 on Sunday – but there will be no complaints from Mackey after heknocked-off the favourite from Dubbo, Lachlan Jones, who scored 79 and finished second.

Thompson scored 95 to take home the honours in the female sectionin a tough field, edging past second-placedHannah Knight ofBathurst.

After taking home the junior classic, Thompson will be heading to Sydney next week to compete in the Australian Genesis Golf Link Cup.

Performances at the cup willhelp Thompson’s push to qualify for the final at the New South Wales Golf Club at Le Perouse inSydney in November.

Thompson is just hopeful of some good scores and a good performance at the cup.

“I just want to shoot low scores,just try my best and see how I go,” she said.

Bathurst Golf Club head professional MattBarrett said the course made for a great day of golf.

“We had visitors from Cowra, Blayney, Forbes and Dubbo,” Barrett said.

“It was great to see so many Bathurst people enter as well and they won almost all awards on the day.”

Desire to keep Eagles flying over the Hunter

Nanjing Night Net

An estimated 1900 people turned out to see the NSW Country Eagles advance to this weekend’s decider in Tamworth following a 50-24 victory againstthe Melbourne Rising.

In the competition’s third year it was the first finals match played in Newcastle and only the second overall after last season’s round game between the Eagles and Queensland Country.

Desire to keep Eagles flying over the Hunter TweetFacebook NSW Country Eagles v Melbourne Rising at No.2 SportsgroundPictures by Jonathan CarrollColeman reckons it should be an annual event.

“I think the NHRU should put in a bid to get a game every year,” he said.

“It’s so close for Eagles players to come here [from Sydney] and foreign teams can fly here directly.”

Newcastle and Hunter Rugby Union general manager Andy Fairfull said they would bid again next year with Eagles officials pleased with the display only a week after announcing the venue.

“The NSW Country Eagles were impressed with the organisation of the event and the quality of the facility,” Fairfull said. “The condition and pace of the playing surface was also noted.”

Coleman’s side earlier defeated the Country Barbarians 65-35 in a curtain-raiser with Josh McCormack and Chris Logan both scoring multiple tries while Dylan Heins was a standout performer.

The hosts led 28-24 at half-time after Country opened with the first two converted tries.

AAP reports: ThreeNSW Country Eagles players crossed for doubles in Saturday’s 26-pointNational Rugby Championship semi-final win against Melbourne Rising in Newcastle.

Winger Reece Robinson, man-of-the-match Samuel Figg and scrumhalf Jake Gordon each scored two tries as NSW Country secured a home final.

Second-rower Rohan O’Reegan scored Country’s other try in the seven-tries-to-three romp.

But the minor premiers were forced to play catch-up, after Wallabies back Sefanaia Naivalu scored the opening try for Melbourne in the first minute.

Five minutes laterhooker Pat Leafa barged over in the corner to help Rising earn a 16-0 lead.

NSW then scored 42 unanswered points to effectively put the game beyond Melbourne, although Rising flanker Jordy Reid scored a try with 15 minutes to go to trim the margin to 18.

Mal calls for harder line on Thurston hits

Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga has renewed calls for superstar playmaker Johnathan Thurston to be offered better protection by referees.
Nanjing Night Net

Thurston was collared early in a high tackle by Kiwis enforcer Jared Waerea-Hargreaves in Australia’s 26-6 win in Perth on Saturday night.The Australian five-eighth was smashed soon after in a borderline tackle by Martin Taupau.

North Queensland coach Paul Green has been at pains to point out questionable tactics used in targeting his premiership-winning pivot.

And Meninga has brought the issue to a head again ahead of the Four Nations starting this month.

“He is the best player in the game and he is always going to have a target on him,” Meninga said.”Every game he plays he knows he is going to cop it left, right and centre in club footy, Origin or Test footy, but he just gets up.

“That’s why he is such a champion player.More than anything else he is such a tough player.”

Former Queensland coach Meninga did question the legality, or otherwise, of tactics opposition sides employed to shut down Thurston.

“As long as it is within the legitimate rules of the game,” he said.”I think Jared’s tackle should have been put on report.He is OK, JT, but it has to be within the rules.He is as tough and resilient as they come.”

Skipper Cameron Smith said the Kangaroos were moving in the right direction under Meninga.Their victory in Perthfollowed a 16-0 defeat of the Kiwis in Newcastle in March in Meninga’s first match in charge.

“We have set a standard nowwe don’t want to go back on,” Smith said.”We have made two good steps forward.We were better than we were in Newcastle and now we have to continue to build on that.”

Greg Inglis scored two tries and was manofthematch.Valentine Holmes wasn’t far behind on his Test debut, scoring one try and setting up another.

The five-tries-to-one win before a ground-record crowd of 20,283 in Perth was the first rugby league international to be played in the western capital.

Meninga said the victory would give Australia valuable momentum into the Four Nations in Britain.

“I am very happy with the performance,” Meninga said.

“Our start was excellent and we really dominated field position. They wrestled that back and started to control the ruck better. We responded and I was really happy with that.

“Our defence was really good, but we can play better with the footy.”

Inglis, who celebratedthe birth of his daughter, Quinn Sybella, on Monday, scored a try in each half and ran164 metres.He trained with the team for the first time at Friday’s captain’s run after arriving in Perth on Thursday.

“Greg says he doesn’t need to train now,” Meninga joked.”He said he will just do the captain’s runs before each game.

“It just goes to show what a professional he is.”

Spirit locks down

THE Bendigo Bank Spirit set an early-season defensive benchmark after strangling the Dandenong Rangers in their WNBL clash on Saturday night.
Nanjing Night Net

Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Spirit on Saturday night. Picture: CRAIG DILKS

The Spirit gave up just 45 points to the Rangers –the equal-fifth best defensive effort in the 219-game history of the club.

The Spirit won 59-45 at the Bendigo Stadium and have now made a 2-0 start to the season.

Dandenong had no answer to the defensive pressure applied by the Spirit as Bendigo beat the Rangers at home for the 10thtime in a row.

The Rangers shot the ball at just 26 per cent from the field –18-of-68 –and had no player score in double figures.

At half-time when the Spirit led 36-20 the Rangers were a woeful 8-of-40 from the field, with only three of those shots having been from three-point range.

“Everybody knows how tough Dandenong plays and to keep any WNBL team to 45 points…the job the girls did defensively was fantastic,” Spirit coach Simon Pritchard said.

The Spirit were never headed in the contest after Kelsy Griffin nailed the first points of the game with a three.

Griffin’s shot was one of just three three-pointers made for the game as both teams struggled from long-range, combining for only 3-of-19.

Having been slow out of the blocks against Adelaide the previous week, this time it was the Spirit who set the pace, leading by as many as 19 points during the second quarter, while their advantage later grew to23 during the third term.

Canadian import Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe was a bundle of energy at both ends of the court for the Spirit, backing up her debut match double-double last week with another as she had game-highs in both points (18) and rebounds (12).

Griffin (14) was the only other player to score in double figures for the Spirit, who after struggling at the free-throw line last week shot a much-improved 9-of-12, including making their first seven shots, while they dominated the rebound count 41-28.

Funding in roads works, says MP

Northern Victoria MP Jaclyn Symes
Nanjing Night Net

An upper houseMP’s radical idea to splice VicRoads into separate organisations for city and country areas has been dismissed by Jaclyn Symes as a “burden”.

Western Victoria MP James Purcell rose in State Parliament last week to call on the government to invest more money to fix the “terrible state” of roads in his electorate.

“VicRoads have, in my mind, failed country Victoriaand you can see that that becomes more of an issue the further you get away from Melbourne,” he said.

“The roads are unsafeand therefore tonight I urge the minister to give country Victoria a chance by splitting VicRoads into two distinct operations,being city roads and country roads.”

But Labor’s Northern Victoria MP MsSymes has defended her party’s investment in country roadimprovements.

“While governments of all persuasions are constantly looking at getting the most of their government departments and reducing costs, splitting an organisation and duplicating the roles and responsibilities would be a significant cost burden on Northern Victoria taxpayers,” she told The Border Mail.

“I am working closely withVicRoads, local councils and government ministers to ensure that appropriate funding is secured.

“The AndrewsLabor government ismakingregionalroadssaferand more efficientandthat’s why we’re investing $51.6 million for new overtaking lanesonkey arterial roadsin regionalVictoria and $340mto address known crashblackspotson more than 2500 kilometres of regionalroads.”

Western Victoria MP James Purcell

The state of country roads has become an issue in recent weeks after heavy rainfall and flooding damagedroad surfaces.

VicRoadswas set to startrepairs when the weather cleared up.

Ms Symes said the government had promised to invest$130mto replace road surfaces and pavements on criticalroutes, with 85 per cent to be spent on arterialroadsand freight routes in regional Victoria.

MrPurcell told Fairfax Media last weekhis ideawas borne out of frustration at decades of inaction over the poor state of South West roads.

“By repeating what you do, you don’t improve, so you need to change,” he said.

“It’s time we had a serious look at the way it actually operates …it isn’t necessarily about more money, it’s better value for money and to be spent on roads that it needs to be spent on.”

Getting into the right headspace to exercise

MOVING: A simple walk daily can be beneficial to mental health. For some, more vigorous activity can produce even greater effects on mood. I can’t count the number of times I have heard ‘run Forrest run’ when I’ve been out on my daily run.
Nanjing Night Net

I always have a little chuckle as I love not only the physical health benefits running brings, but also the positive effect on my mental health. We all experience stress daily but excessive stress can manifest itself into mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. October 11 was Headspace day-an initiative of the National Mental Health Foundation. This monthis a great time to explore the physical impact of mental health issues and how we can harness physical activity as part of a management plan.

It’s common in a physiotherapy clinic to see clients with aches and pains that are exacerbated by increased stress levels and more significant mental health issues. Increased muscular tension is a typical response to stress and can result in neck and back pain, headaches, jaw pain from clenching teeth, and generalised aching and fatigue.

While the causes of stress can be out of your control, recognising patterns of increased muscular tension is a great start to feeling physically better. Regular practise of relaxation exercises can assist in reducing pain and ultimately breaking the physical response to stress.

Feeling sad and unhappy can often result in slumped postures. Poor posture can add stress to our spinal joints and also increase spinal pain. Having awareness of this can allow you to adopt more comfortable postures and avoid the development of musculoskeletal pain.

There is a correlation of reduced physical activity and poor mental health.Those suffering mental health issues often struggle to find the motivation to exercise and be active. The British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2010 reported that sedentary behaviour and mental health issues are strongly linked. However, exercise has been shown in adolescents and young people to improve self-esteem and assist in managing anxiety and depression.

A simple walk daily can be beneficial to mental health. For some, more vigorous activitycan produce even greater effects on mood. Finding something you like to participate in is not always easy but start off with small amounts of exercise, such as a walk around the block, to get into the habit. Getting outside also assists with mood, as lack of exposure to natural light can also result in low mood levels.

So next time you yell out ‘run Forrest run’ to someone pounding the pavements, they may just be having a mental health therapy session. Yelling out ‘good job Forrest’ may just help them keep going.

Webbcona opens account

Nathan Mahony
Nanjing Night Net

Webbconaopened its account in theBallarat-Geelongpremierbowls season with a convincing victory overCity of Geelong on Saturday.

Webbcona started well and never looked back, leading all day to clinch a 39-shot win –107 shots to 68.

In what was another difficult day for City of Geelong, which has now suffered two heavy losses to start the year.Webbcona skipper Brett Mahoney said he was extremely proud of the performance given its poor preparation, which now has the club knocking on the door of the top four.

The only play it got onits home green in the lead-up to the clash was on Saturday morning. Combined with the windy conditions, it made for a difficult day, making the result all the more pleasing.

“Our front green’s pretty open and the wind was chopping and changing –it was really difficult conditions,” Mahoney said.

“For the second week of pennant we’re very pleased with the form players are showing. We haven’t had much of a chance to even practice because the green’s been shut.With the lack of preparation we had, I’d say we did a mighty job.”

Mahoney said the side felt in full control for much of the match.

He said getting off to a quick start was crucial against any opponent andcoupled with consistency throughout the day would ensure a successful outcome.

“Right from the first end we were in front of them.

“If you maintain the lead from the word go and come away with the win, it shows that you’ve got a lot of the team bowling consistently, putting bowls on the head and usually that’s the secret recipe to come away with the win.”

Recruits Anne Draffen and Chris Steenhuis continued their strong start with their new clubs, both leading their respective rinks well.

While Rod Barton impressed in his jump up to the premier division, after filling the void left by Greg Blackburn, who was unwell.

In other premier division results, Queenscliff defeated reigning premierVictorian 101-89 in a huge result for the Cliffers.

Handicap Pairs

The Handicap Pairs commenced on Saturday with all five first round matches played in beautiful conditions. Jim Beattie and Barry Sloane had to withstand a scare on the last end to claim a 21 – 20 win over Perry Franke and John Monks. The game had been very tight until Sloane won a series of ends to set up an eight shot lead with 2 ends to play. Monks picked up 2 shots on the 20th end and then dominated the last end and almost forced the game into an extra end. Unfortunately for him they fell one shot short allowing Sloane to advance to the next round.

Julian Penny and Allen Etheredge also had a very close game with Lou Kozlik and Doug Williams. Ettheredge and Penny had to give four shots start and they managed to make up the deficit and by the 12th end they had a 15 – 9 lead. Kozlik and Williams then fought back to be in front 16 – 15 after 15 ends. The last six ends were very tight but Etheredge prevailed to win 22 – 20.

Alf Winch put on a great display of lead bowling as he helped Dave Carter record a strong win over Mick Atkinson and Peter Macdonald. Winch was almost unbeatable in the first half of the game as he steered his side to a 24 – 7 lead after 12 ends. Atkinson and Macdonald had some success from here but they could not avoid the final 29 – 13 loss.

David Boon and Ron Cox won all but four ends as they recorded a very convincing 34 – 6 win over Dennis Benger and Ian Wratten.

Jim Macklan showed his versatility as he moved from his normal lead position to play a great game as skip as he teamed with Reg Endall to outplay Stan Peck and Alan Skelton. Macklan was in great touch on both hands as he won 28 – 9.
