Bali-bound passengers with damaged
passports are being denied boarding
in Perth because of new tighter
restrictions and fines imposed by
Indonesian authorities.
After an incident in November when a
British couple were denied entry to Bali

Mandatory jail terms are being urged
for drivers who flout lifetime bans by
getting back behind the wheel of a car.
The push, from the State Opposition

Fear of sharks closes
a beach every day
Lifeguards are closing an
average of one Perth beach a
day this summer because of
the threat of sharks.
Surf Life Saving WA
recorded 42 shark-related
beach closures across the
South West last month,
including 32 in the metropolitan area. There have been
15 in Perth since Saturday.
A SLSWA spokesman said
there had been a rise in the
number of tagged shark
detections this summer.
SLSWA follows guidelines
on when beaches should be
closed in response to shark
sightings.
If a shark is 2m-3m long
and within 500m of shore,
lifeguards will close 2km of
beach for at least an hour.
The same precaution will
be taken if a shark longer
than 3m comes within one
kilometre of shore.
Shark spotted at Cit
y Beach.
Some tagged shark detections also trigger beach
closures
because
most
tagged specimens are now
estimated to be at least 2m
long.
Mullaloo
beach
was
closed yesterday afternoon
after the Westpac helicopter
spotted a 3m shark about
70m offshore.
On New Year’s Eve, more
than 300 people were evacuated from the water at Yallingup beach after a 3m white
pointer was seen 50m offshore.

On Sunday, Secret Harbour was one of four popular metropolitan beaches

University of WA associate professor Paul Maginn
was at the beach when it
happened.
“Gotta love Perth. Today’s
surf included two warnings
— snakes and sharks,” he
posted on Twitter.
“Surf Life Saving did a
great job in warning beachgoers about the shark and
chasing it off on jetskis.”

It’s time lifetime ban
drivers ‘went to jail’
EXCLUSIVE
Shannon Hampton
and Joey Catanzaro
Pressure is mounting for mandatory jail terms for drivers
caught behind the wheel while
under lifetime driving bans after
a horror crash that injured eight
members of a family, including
one boy left fighting for his life.
The State Opposition and a
road safety expert yesterday led
calls for tougher laws after it was
revealed Matthew David Molloy
— the man accused of ploughing
a stolen ute into the family’s van
in Wilson on Saturday before
fleeing — had been banned for
life from driving despite never
having held a licence.
The five-year-old boy, who was
worst hurt in the crash, was still
in a critical condition in Perth
Children’s Hospital last night.
His family have asked the
community to keep them in their
prayers, pleading: “If you are
not fit to be on the road, stop
before you hurt yourself and
others.”
Shadow police and road safety
minister Peter Katsambanis
said people caught flouting lifetime driving bans “have abso-

lutely no regard for our laws
or for our community” and
should face a minimum jail
term.
Under current laws, a person
caught driving under a life ban
will have their vehicle impounded for 28 days and can face a maximum penalty of 18 months jail
and a $4000 fine.
“If someone is banned from
driving for life, they are obviously considered to be very dangerous,” Mr Katsambanis said.
“If they disregard the law,
they should be subject to a
minimum jail term of something
like five years with a higher
maximum in really serious
cases. I call on the Government
to introduce amendments to the
law so these people can be put
away to protect the rest of the
community.
“If the Government does not
do it, I’ll consider bringing in a
private member’s Bill to do
that.”
Monash University Accident
Research Centre professor Max
Cameron echoed Mr Katsambanis’ views. “Because magistrates
have discretions and are reluctant to jail people, I think the
idea of a mandatory sentence on
them is a good one,” he said.
Police and Road Safety Ministter Michelle Roberts said she
te
was glad Mr Molloy, 34, was
w
refused bail on Monday, saying
rre
“his record is a disgrace”.
“h
She accused Mr Katsambanis
of “political opportunism”.
o
The family yesterday thanked
ambulance officers, hospital

a
staff, police, their parish comsst
munity, family and friends for
m
“all the care and support”.
“a
“Please keep us and the people
who care for us in your prayers,”
w
the family said. “Also keep your
tth
prayers to everyone on the road
pr
p
sso that they are safe.”
The critically injured boy’s
six-year-old brother was in hossi
pital last night in a stable condition. Four of his family were also
in a stable condition in Royal
Perth Hospital.
Police allege the family’s van
was at traffic lights on Leach
Highway when Mr Molloy
rammed it from behind, pushing
the van into the rear of a stationary truck. Mr Molloy, who has
not entered pleas to four charges, including failing to stop and
help after an incident causing
grievous bodily harm, will
return to court on February 4.

Man drowns at popular Rockingham dive site
Rourke Walsh
and Monique Dirksz
A man aged in his 20s is believed
to have drowned yesterday while
free-diving among wrecks off
Rockingham.
The tragedy happened about
noon while the victim was diving
along the Rockingham Wreck
Trail, a series of deliberately
submerged planes and boats
that are popular with divers.
Witnesses said the man was
pulled from the water and given
emergency CPR on the beach
for more than 20 minutes
before being taken to Rockingham Hospital, where he was
declared dead.
It is believed he was wearing
goggles and flippers but did not
have breathing equipment.
Mirei Masakura said she had
walked past the man, and a
woman she believed was his
girlfriend, in the water as she
was returning to shore from
scuba diving on the wrecks.
She said the woman did have
full scuba-diving equipment and
the pair remained in the water
for about 30 minutes before the
man got into trouble.
“He didn’t have a tank, he was
skindiving,” Ms Masakura said.
“When we finished diving they
were going out. We were taking a
rest and then the police came.”
†
She said the man seemed in
good spirits when they crossed
paths and had asked if she had
enjoyed the dive and whether
she had seen any seahorses.
Ms Masakura said she later
found goggles she believed the
victim had been wearing in the
water near one of the wrecks.
Water police are investigating
the circumstances of the man’s
death and will prepare a report
for the Coroner.

whereby if a passenger has the
slightest imperfection with their
passport, they will fine the airline $5000 and send the passenger home”.
The airline staff took the passenger’s passport and photographed it and transmitted it to
their office in Bali for approval
but it was rejected as “too risky”.
The passenger said the counter staff had told her that Batik
Air had been fined on a number
of occasions and passengers had
been sent back to Perth.
“They told me that in response
that they had stopped 20 passengers with damaged passports
from flying to Bali in the past
month,” she said.
The passengers then turned to
Indonesia AirAsia which, while
confirming the tighter restrictions, said it had no problems
with the male passenger’s “damaged” passport. It had no seats
available but booked the couple
to fly out on Friday.
“Indonesia AirAsia staff told
us that they had also had customers rejected in Bali with
damaged passports,” one of the
passengers said.
An AirAsia spokeswoman
confirmed the tighter enforcement, saying the “airline continues to comply with the
current advice from Indonesia’s
immigration authority”.
“Passengers are responsible
for ensuring they have the correct documentation for travel
and that there are no signs of
damage, especially to the ID pages and biometric chip,” she said.
“To prevent issues from occurring, guests are advised to check
their passport and documentation is in good condition before
they travel.”
If unsure, seek advice from
relevant authorities, she said.
A Perth travel agency said one
of its customers travelling to
Bali also encountered problems
with a slightly damaged passport but managed to “talk their
way through”.
British couple Daniel and Tia
Farthing, who were denied
entry to Bali in November, had a
16-hour trip before being turned
away.
Mr Farthing had used the
“chewed” passport to travel in
Europe without trouble and on
the trip to Bali had to transit
through Singapore without any
issues. He said UK Border Force
staff had assured him it would
be fine for going to Indonesia
because all the key details were
intact. The passport was damaged in one corner.
A Department of Foreign
Affairs and Trade spokesman
said “serious damage to a passport could prevent a person from
travelling overseas”.
Batik Air did not respond.

Fremantle
great
Paul
Hasleby
has
defended
Harley Bennell, denying
the embattled star’s latest
off-field indiscretion was a
“contract breaker”.
Bennell has hit the headlines again after reports
emerged he had been asked
to leave the Ocean Beach
Hotel just after 7pm on Sunday for being intoxicated.
Dockers general manager
of football Peter Bell said in
a statement that the club
was aware that Bennell was
asked to leave a licensed
venue in Cottesloe on Sunday and complied with the
request to do so.
It comes almost a year
(last January 9) after the former No. 2 draft pick was banished to train with WAFL
affiliate
Peel
Thunder
because he was involved in a
drunken scuffle with security at a Fremantle nightclub
before missing the first
training session of the year.
Bennell was also fined
after bizarre behaviour
while attending a Peel
match in 2017 and was
asked to leave a flight to
the Gold Coast in a
separate incident for being
intoxicated that year.
The former Gold Coast
midfielder has played just
two games for Fremantle in
three seasons at the club but
was handed a new one-year
contract in August in the
hopes he could overcome
persistent calf problems
and have an impact this
year.
Hasleby said the
club should persist with the
December 2016: Bennell’s car is impounded
after he is caught driving without a licence.
I don’t think it’s a contract breaker.
Paul Hasleby
richly talented 26-year-old,
who has looked in impressive condition during the
pre-Christmas period of the
summer training program.
“I don’t think there
should be any action on
this one,” Hasleby said.
“They’ve certainly invested a lot in him.
“There probably would
have been many a player
probably over the Christmas period and New Year
period intoxicated at some
stage and the fact that he
didn’t get himself into any
trouble and complied with
all of the security measures
at the OBH, I’m happy
for them to give him
another chance.
“Given his circumstances,
it probably wasn’t the
smartest move to be out in
public and intoxicated but I
don’t think it’s an absolute
contract breaker.
“I think there’s still a lot
of good upside,” he said.
“Clearly over the preseason he’s done a lot right
and his body seems to be
holding up so I think given
he’s come so far, there may
be some sort of little sanction, but I wouldn’t deem
it too serious.
“I think people obviously
get the criticism based on
their past results, so I think
it’s always going to come
to the fore when there
is an incident.
“But I think you’ve just
got to treat each one
on its merits and on
its merits this one, to
me, doesn’t look like a
massive deal.”
The Fremantle players
have been on leave since
their Gold Coast camp
wrapped up on December 14.
They are due to return to
continue their pre-season
training on Monday.
It is unclear whether the
club will take any action but
Bennell is understood to be
on his last chance.
Bennell’s manager Colin
Young said in October that
new football boss Bell had
made his position clear.
“He (Bennell) did have a
meeting with the club and
obviously Peter has taken
that role (in late September)
while Harley was on holidays,” Mr Young told SEN
in October.
“Harley knows exactly
what he has to do next year
to get back to becoming an
elite player.
“I think Peter was reinforcing that if he has
one hiccup, he’ll be out of
the club.
“So basically that’s the
truth of the matter.
“Harley will be doing his
best to stay committed to
his fitness regime and try
to be an elite player next
season.
“But Peter just made
sure he (Bennell) knew
where he stood.”

Wrong flight girl
safe and sound
Tim Clarke
A teenager who left her family
distraught after she vanished
after leaving on a flight from
Perth to country NSW was
found safe and well last night.
The search for Angelina
Chakovski started when the 15year-old disappeared in bizarre
circumstances after her departure from WA early on New
Year’s Eve.
Angelina, who also uses
the surname Nelson, was
dropped off at Perth Airport
about
1am
on
Monday
to
catch
a
flight
to
Melbourne.
She was then expected to
catch
another
flight
to
Merimbula, on the NSW
southern coast.
However, it is believed she
instead caught a 10am flight
to Sydney.
It was believed last night that
she may have accidentally
caught the wrong flight.
Concerned relatives reported the girl missing about

Dr Hook singer dies
Ray Sawyer — the eye-patch wearing singer with Dr Hook & the
Medicine Show in the 1970s — has
died aged 81.
His wife Linda said Sawyer died
“peacefully in his sleep”, adding
that her “heart is broken”.
Dr Hook had success in Australia in the 1970s and 80s with hits
including Walk Right In, When
You’re in Love with a Beautiful
Woman, Only Sixteen, Sharing the
Night and Baby Makes Her Blue
Jeans Talk.
Sawyer joined Dr Hook in 1969,
two years after he lost an eye in a
car accident. Despite not being the
lead singer, his eye patch — and
cowboy hat — made him the most
easily recognised.
Sawyer, who was born in
Chickasaw, Alabama, in 1937,
took the lead vocals on the band’s
Ray Sawyer
1972
972 hit song Cover of the Rolling
Stone. Sawyer left the band in 1981
to pursue a solo career but went on
to spend much of his later career
touring with a spin-off group
named Dr Hook featuring Ray
Sawyer.
He retired three years ago.
Baby girl joy for Martin
Ricky Martin is starting the new
year with a new bundle of joy.
The Grammy-nominated singer
announced the arrival of his
daughter with an Instagram post
showing off the infant’s tiny
hands. Martin said the girl was
named Lucia.
His post did not include additional details, other than the baby
girl was healthy. Martin’s post said
his family — husband Jwan Yosef
and 10-year-old twin sons — have
“fallen in love with Lucia”.

Legends
serve up
a treat
but cup
may end
Steve Butler
It was billed as the battle of the
sexes and it lived up to the hype
— tennis’ two greatest players
going rally for rally in the mixed
doubles in front of 14,000 fans at
RAC Arena last night.
Roger Federer won the battle
but it was all laughs with Serena
Williams after the match.
The pair even took a selfie
to remember their historic
coming together.
Amid it all, Federer committed personally to Perth’s decades-old Hopman Cup amid
speculation it will be axed after
this year.
He emphatically said the Hopman Cup should run into a 32nd
year in 2020 and he would continue to come back to support it.
“I’m super-supportive of having tennis here in Perth, I think
that should be the headline
because that’s really important
to me and to the people here,”
Federer said.
“This city will keep international top tennis and I will try to
support it as well because it
deserves it.
“The Hopman Cup has been
very successful from the
players’ standpoint but also
from the city’s standpoint and
the government’s standpoint.
“I love seeing tennis on the
up-swing and it’s really got bigger and better over the years
thanks to the great people who
have played this sport for many,
many years.”
Tournament director Paul
Kilderry still could not confirm
last night whether the Hopman
Cup would continue into a
32nd year.
“People are still working
through it and it’s a very
political time in tennis,” he said.
“It’s an amazing event, we love
the event. It’s an amazing arena
and people love coming here.
There will certainly be worldclass tennis in Perth, no doubt
about that.”
As lines of fans bubbled out on
to Wellington Street in Perth’s
CBD last night ahead of the first
— and probably only — clash
between Federer and Williams,
Mr Kilderry reflected on the
global magnitude of last night’s
meeting of the tennis giants.
“There’s six different events
on at the same time between men
and women this week so to have
two of the most famous, not
just tennis players, but athletes

you have to take a peek. It sold
out like nothing we’ve seen
before and you don’t see crowds
anywhere in the world at mixed
doubles like you see here.
“Even for Roger and Serena
it’s a bit of a novelty.”

Crazy day
on beach
for Bree
and beau
Di Bauwens
Bree Maddox will be keeping her
name after she married her partner of six years, retired businessman Nick Hayler, in a glam
beach wedding at Quindalup at
the weekend.
“I thought about it. I feel my
name is so synonymous with
me,” the owner of The Court
hotel said.
In the background, Mr Hayler
boomed: “And I love it.”
Ms Maddox added: “When we
do things together, we call it
Madd love.”
After a beachfront ceremony
in front of 150 barefooted guests
wearing luxury resort wear,
there was a singalong before everyone walked back to the couple’s renovated beach house
where the whole street got
involved in the celebrations.
“Everyone said it was the most
authentic, crazy, fun wedding
they’d been to,” Ms Maddox,
who was previously married to
adultshop.com boss Malcolm
Day, said.
“We threw the rule book out of
the window. The result was raw
and hilarious.”
Mr Hayler added: “Our promises were real promises.”
The bride wore a bodysuit by
local designer Jonte Morgan
with two different skirts for the
wedding and after party and
there was a third costume

While others were welcoming a

Terry Bertoncini were welcoming an addition to their family.
Born four minutes after midnight at Fiona Stanley Hospital,
Caden Lawrence Bertoncini is
believed to be WA’s first baby
born in 2019.
Weighing 3.91kg — or eight
pounds and 10 ounces — Caden
is the Camillo couple’s fourth
child. Ms Harvey was induced 14
days early because he was
“going to be such a big baby”.
The parents, both 29, were
excited yesterday to take their
precious bundle home, with his
siblings Dylan, 10, Elijah, 7, and
Sophie, 6, “champing at the bit”
to meet him. “He will for ever
have friends who will want to
party with him on his birthday,”
Ms Harvey said.

morning into a white Gucci
dress. “I needed something I
didn’t need to worry about by
then,” Ms Maddox said.
The couple’s three children,
who danced into the night with
guests, almost stole the show
with their cute antics.
Izzy, 11, and two-year-old
Charlie wore white Jonte dresses to match their mum, while
Max, 3, wore shorts and a linen
shirt.
The groom was also in shorts
and a white linen shirt.
But it was what was under Mr
Hayler’s shirt that was the real
showstopper.
In July, he went through physical pain to show his bride-to-be
the depth of his love in an ink
tribute tattoo. Covering his
back, the tattoo features a giant
compass with the birthdates of
Ms Maddox and their children.
“They provide the direction in
my life,” Mr Hayler said.
The words on the tattoo say it
all: “Now I know what I’ll die for,
I know what I’m living for.”
In the lead-up to the wedding,
Mr Hayler lost 20kg and added a
Viking raven wings tattoo on his
arm — making a total of 40 hours
of pain in the name of love.

Top cop backs bins to
ccut festival drug risk
Rourke Walsh
“Small quantities” of illicit
drugs were dumped in special
bins near the entrance to the
Origin Fields music festival this
week, police revealed yesterday.
But they refused to say how
much.
The effectiveness of the drug
disposal bins, which enabled
people to dump illicit substances
without penalty before entering
the Langley Park venue, was
hotly debated during the twoday festival.
Commander Paul Dallimore
said the bins were a strategy to
discourage people from taking
illicit drugs.
Several people at the festival
said offering free pill testing was
a better way of keeping people
safe.
“Any strategy that we can put
in place that prevents people
from taking illicit drugs is a positive,” Cdr Dallimore said. “Illicit
drugs are something that we are
targeting within the event itself.
“It is a proactive strategy we
are employing to encourage
those that may consider taking
A drug disposal bin at the entrance to the Origin Fields music festival.
illicit drugs to . . . separate themselves from those drugs without
fear of prosecution.”
Police
Minister
Michelle
Roberts and Health Minister
Roger Cook have said there were
no plans to consider pill testing.
But Mr Cook said the State
would monitor where it was
rolled out in other States to
determine whether it was an
option that could be considered.
The call for festival pill testing
came after two men died in suspected overdoses at separate
music events in the Eastern
States in recent days. A 22-yearold man died on the NSW Central Coast at the weekend and a
20-year-old died in hospital yesterday after attending a festival
east of Melbourne on Saturday.
Police used sniffer dogs to
check people for drugs as they
entered the Origin event. Officers in uniform and plain
clothes patrolled inside the
venue.
Five males, aged between 17
and 25, were charged with possessing small amounts of
MDMA and cocaine after being
searched. But police say no large
quantities of drugs likely to be
on-sold were seized.
The Origin Fields festival was
one of Perth’s biggest New
Year’s Eve events.
Police said other celebrations
in Perth and regional WA were
also mostly trouble-free. Across
WA, 106 people were arrested
and charged with 213 offences.
Commander Jo McCabe said
about 1700 WA police officers
had worked overnight.
“Although the evening was
busy for police Statewide, responding to over 1300 calls for
assistance, it was pleasing to see
that no significant incidents
occurred,” Cdr McCabe said.
“There were a number of
planned events, and of course
people attended licensed establishments across the State, but
the majority of people welcomed
in the new year in an enjoyable
and safe way.”
IT’S A NEW YEAR NEWS
For the latest news
Toll may be record low
but heartache remains
Gabrielle Knowles
Chief Crime Reporter
WA is on track for its lowest road
toll on record but authorities say
while the statistic is encouraging, too many families have
started the new year without a
loved one.
The preliminary total of 159
deaths last year — 60 on metropolitan roads and 99 in the country — is below the 161 deaths
in 2017, previously the equallowest toll since records began
in 1961.
Road Safety Minister Michelle
Roberts said it was encouraging
the road toll had continued to
fall from a disappointing 196
in 2016.
But the figures represented
tragedy for the families and
friends of the 159 people killed
and the many more seriously
injured, she said.
“It’s a constant reminder of
the need to be vigilant every time
we get behind the wheel,” Mrs
Roberts said. “My thoughts are
with those who are recovering in
hospital from serious crashes
over the festive period.
“As a Government, we are
strongly focused on reducing
road trauma, but as a commun-

ity, we all need to take great care
and give our full attention to the
task of driving.”
Traffic Acting Commander
Dominic Wood said it was still a
high-risk period for drivers and
they needed to avoid complacency, particularly on long trips.
“I would urge the public to
plan their journey, get plenty of
sleep and take regular breaks,”
he said. “The majority of crash-
es are not caused by illegal or
risk-taking behaviour, but by ordinary people making mistakes.
“Momentary lapses of concentration and inattention can
be deadly.”
Cdr Wood said police would
continue to do what they could to
keep people safe. Officers

celebrations. He said most motorists had been doing the right
thing but some people still made
poor decisions behind the wheel.

there was still a lot more to do to
reduce the number of lives lost
on the roads.

remain in place until midnight

Plastic bag
ban begins
WA retailers who supply lightweight plastic bags could face a
$5000 fine after new laws came
into force yesterday.
Customers can report retailers suspected of using banned
bags, which include biodegradable and compostable plastic bags
with a thickness of 35 microns or
less, via bagbanwa.com.au.
The ban applies to all retailers, not just supermarkets.
National Retail Association
spokesman David Stout said
WA retailers appeared wellprepared for the changes.
“From what we can see,
they’ve got the message, they’ve
made some decisions,” he said.
“Most have chosen alternative
options to plastic.
“Some retailers have chosen
options that are probably a relatively simple step and we would
warn them about being barely
compliant, only because they
might have to do the whole thing
again in six or 12 months time.”
Mr Stout said shoppers had
been
conditioned
to
the
change because supermarkets
had already stopped supplying
single-use plastic bags.
Acting environment minister
Simone McGurk said the ban
was making a difference.
“Since July 1, 2018, we have
stopped around 225 million lightweight plastic bags ending up
in landfill, or worse still, in
our oceans,” she said.

UK terror police probe
train station stabbings
Manchester
British counterterrorism police
are leading an investigation
after a man stabbed three people
at a central train station in Manchester, England.
Two commuters, a man and a
woman in their 50s, were taken
to hospital with knife injuries
and a British Transport Police
officer was stabbed in the
shoulder.
A witness to the attack, which
happened at Victoria Station
about 9pm on New Year’s Eve,
said he heard the assailant shout
“Allah” during the incident.
Police said a man was arrested
on suspicion of attempted murder and remained in custody.
Assistant Chief Const. Rob
Potts said the investigation was
led by counterterrorism police
and officers were keeping an
“open mind”.
“Tonight’s events will have
understandably worried people
but I need to stress that the incident is not ongoing, a man is in
custody and there is currently
no intelligence to suggest that
there is any wider threat at this
time,” he said.
Sam Clack, 38, a BBC producer, was on a platform at the
railway station waiting for a
tram home when he saw the
attack.
“I just heard this most bloodcurdling scream and looked
down the platform,” he said.
“What it looked like was a guy
in his 60s with a woman of similar age and another guy all
dressed in black.
“It looked like they were having a fight but she was screaming in this bloodcurdling way.
“I saw police in high-vis come
towards him.
“He came towards me. I looked
down and saw he had a kitchen
knife with a black handle with a
12-inch blade.
“It was just fear, pure fear.”
Mr Clack said police used a
Taser and pepper spray before
“six or seven” officers jumped
on the man and held him down.
He said he heard the suspect
saying, “As long as you keep
bombing other countries this
sort of s... is going to keep happening”.
Mr Clack said it looked like the
man and the woman with him
had been stabbed, but both were
conscious and were walked to a
waiting ambulance.
He said he also heard the knifeman shouting “Allah” during
the attack. “He shouted it before,
Police officers hold the attacker down at Victoria Station in Manchester. Pictures: Twitter
he shouted it during it — Allah,”
Mr Clack said.
As police appeared “within
seconds” the knifeman backed
down the platform towards
where Mr Clack was standing
alone.
He said he was afraid the man
would attack him.
“I just had a feeling in the pit of
my stomach,” Mr Clack said.
“Here’s a man who’s very agitated, angry, skittish. It appears
he had already attacked someone. He had police coming
towards him and he’s coming
towards me.
“I thought what I need to do is
jump on to the tracks because
next thing he’s going to do is
turn around and stab me. He’s
looking about, side to side and
jumpy,” he said.
“At one point one of the police
officers fired the Taser, but it
missed him. Then he got peppersprayed and tasered and he went
to the ground.

been so scared in my life.” PA

Massive surcharges on Uber
fares during New Year’s Eve
celebrations have sparked complaints from Perth revellers.
Many took to social media
yesterday to protest against
exorbitant charges for ride-sharing services, including one user
who paid $252 for a 32km trip
that took 33 minutes.
Under its surge pricing
method, Uber increases fares in
line with demand at busy times.
A woman who posted screen
shots on social media of an Uber
quote of about $200 to travel
from Fremantle to Bayswater
at 1.30am said she ended up
taking a taxi for $66.
“It’s just ridiculous,” she said.
“We waited a few minutes and
checked again, but it just kept
going up and peaked at $211.”
She said Uber usually charged
between $35 and $45 for the
same trip.
Uber said fares were higher
during times of peak demand,
but it took steps to get more
drivers on the road to keep
prices down on New Year’s Eve.
Last year Uber introduced
upfront fares to give passengers
certainty on pricing so they
could compare products before
booking a ride.
An Uber spokeswoman said
thousands of local drivers
helped to get tens of thousands
of people home safely on
New Year’s Eve.
The busiest time was between
midnight and 3am.
“Top pick-up destinations
included Ascot Racecourse,
the Crown hotel and Queens
Gardens,” the spokeswoman
said.
Taxi Operators Legal Defence
Group spokesman Peter Rosengrave said people who were often
inebriated when they agreed to
an Uber fare on New Year’s Eve
received a nasty surprise when
they looked at their bill the
next morning and realised they
had been slugged five times
more than usual.
“It’s taking advantage,” Mr
Rosengrave said.

Residents warned of floods as cyclone batters Cape York
Tropical cyclone Penny last
night made landfall on the Gulf

The Weather Bureau said that
Penny made landfall between

Heavy rainfall may lead to
flash flooding across the cape

A falling Aussie dollar and US
President Donald Trump’s phone
chat with his Chinese presidential
counterpart may have saved superannuation funds from their
first losses since 2011.
The super funds of most Australian workers are likely to break
even over the past year thanks to a
New Year’s Eve party on Wall
Street fuelled by Mr Trump
tweeting he had made progress in
trade talks with Chinese President
Xi Jinping.
Although official figures were
still to be calculated, SuperRatings
executive director Kirby Rappell
said yesterday that returns were
likely to be either a small positive
or a small negative return for
what he describes as median
balanced funds.
He estimated that funds with 60
per cent to 76 per cent of their
money in growth-seeking investments had lost 1.6 per cent in the
past month. It all but wipes out net
gains of more than 5 per cent from
the first nine months of last year.
Of course, returns come down
to
where
the
super
is
invested and the amount of currency hedging.
People with all of their super
invested in growth-chasing assets
such as shares and property trusts
still face losses because of a 15 per
cent global share value plunge in
the December quarter.
Those conservatively invested
could come out about one per cent
in front thanks to the protection of
higher cash holdings, diversification of risk and sizeable chunks of
investments in high-quality bonds.
The final quarter of last year
was overwhelmingly negative
because of fears of a trade war
breaking out between the US
and China.
A Christmas Eve share price
plunge put most Australian super
funds in danger of losses of 1.5 per
cent or more as Mr Trump looked
to be fighting a Twitter war with
China and his own Federal
Reserve bank.
Funds focused on risky assets
faced losses upwards of 4 per cent,
while funds evenly set between
risky and defensive assets faced
small losses.
Mr Trump’s Christmas Day
appeasement of Federal Reserve
officials and a positive tweet about
negotiations with Mr Xi boosted
US shares and the US dollar.
It is doubly good news for most
Australian super fund members
given the high levels of investment
in overseas shares and effectively
betting against the Australian dollar by holding most overseas
shares without currency hedging.
Mr Rappell said the marginal
loss or gain for 2018 would be the
lowest return for super since 2011
when Super Ratings’ survey of
median balanced-fund returns
showed a 1.9 per cent loss.

Unions strike out under Labor
Daniel Mercer
Labor is facing claims of
being a soft target for unions
after industrial unrest in WA
rocketed to its highest level since
the last time the party was in
power in the State.
Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show 33,600 working
days were lost during the three
months to September 30 as
workers went on strike at
a number of sites.
Chief among them were the
mining, refining and port operations of aluminium giant
Alcoa, which was hit with roll-
ing strikes after 1600 employees
protested against a proposed
pay deal.
Bus drivers employed by
Transperth contractor Transdev were also among those
believed to have walked off the
job during the period as they
pushed for higher wages.
It was the highest incidence
of industrial dispute since
the December quarter of 2003,
when striking workers caused
41,000 working days to be
lost during the first term of the
Gallop Labor government.
The State Opposition seized on
the figures, arguing they showed
‘Strike action has
ballooned under the
McGowan Labor
Government.’
Shadow industrial relations
minister Peter Katsambanis
Labor was incapable of keeping
unions in line.
Industrial Relations Minister
Bill Johnston dismissed the
claims as “ridiculous”, saying
most strikes involved workers
covered by Federal workplace
laws, which were administered
by the Morrison Government.
Mr Johnston said though it
was concerning relations had
deteriorated to the point
workers “felt the need” to
strike, the State Government
could not be held accountable
for action taken under the
Federal system.
“We would always prefer that
workers and employers can
work together to solve their
problems,” he said.
Shadow industrial relations
minister Peter Katsambanis
said the State Government had
to take some of the blame
for the increase, saying some
of its ministers had even encouraged industrial action.
“Strike action has ballooned
under the McGowan Labor
Government and this wake-up
call highlights the dangers of
WA Labor on business and the
economy,” he said.
“The Premier is obliged to
repay the unions that campaigned heavily to get him into
government and that support
has been repaid by encouraging
strike action on Western Australian worksites, including
the Premier and ministers
standing front and centre on
picket lines.”

Jesinta talks rubbish in pitch for ocean-friendly sportswear
Anna Byrne
Jesinta Franklin has dived in for
an important cause, taking
a dip to highlight a new gamechanging range of active wear.
Next week, Adidas will release
a range of sporting apparel and
footwear in collaboration with
Parley, made from marine litter
such as plastic and fishing line.
“It’s the first time I’ve
been
photographed
under
water and it was a lot of fun,”
Franklin said.
“The next day my whole body
was sore as I was treading water
for over an hour but it was worth
it to share a really important
message — the threat that
marine plastic pollution has on
our beaches and waterways.”
Franklin says she hopes the
revolutionary range will create
a tidal wave through the
industry.
“It is about taking threats to
threads,” she said.
“There is no excuse for mass
brands not to be looking for
innovative ways to repurpose
materials for their clothing and
to be more resourceful.
“In our industry, it seems
to be that it’s not until the big
players take a stand that other
brands follow.
“And I think Adidas is really
setting a standard that if we
can do better then we should
do better.
“People can have preconceived ideas about how recycled
fabrics look and feel, but quality,
functionality and style have not
been compromised in this range
— it looks and feels luxe.”
Franklin said her sister
Aleysha had inspired her to
become more passionate about
the environment in recent years,
and she had made a conscious
effort to educate herself more
in this area.
“My awareness has definitely
grown in issues of environment
and sustainability and my
sister has been educating me on
this,” she said.
“As you get older, you start
to have a better understanding
that this world is not just for
me to enjoy, but also for
my future children and for
future generations.”

We’ve got all the best ideas on display, right here
Australia’s attempt to strip citizenship from a
recruiter for Islamic State has been thrown into
doubt with Fiji reportedly saying he is not one
of its citizens.
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said on
Saturday that Australia was much safer
after the Federal Government revoked Neil
Prakash’s citizenship.
Canberra believes Prakash, who is wanted
over an alleged plot to behead a Melbourne
police officer, is a dual national as his father
was Fijian. A person with such dual status can
be stripped of their Australian citizenship
if they engage in terrorism-related conduct
and IS was declared
a terrorist organisation in 2016 for this
purpose.
The
Government
cannot revoke single
Australian
citizenship because that
would leave a person
stateless.
Neil Prakash
But Fiji’s Immigration Department director
ctor Nemani
Vuniwaqa said Prakash was not one of its citizens, the Fiji Sun newspaper reported yesterday. “Neil Prakash . . . was born in Australia
and has acquired Australian citizenship since
birth,” he was quoted as saying.
The Home Affairs Department yesterday was
unable to confirm Prakash’s status.

Tough new
cop on beat
for aged care
Nick Evans
Canberra
Australia’s tough new aged care
industry regulator takes charge of
the sector today, as the royal commission into aged care cranks up
its own work.
Aged Care Quality and Safety
Commissioner Janet Anderson
will officially open the doors of the
agency today, bringing together
the Australian Aged Care Quality
Agency and Aged Care Complaints
Commissioner as the “one-stop
shop” for regulation, compliance
and complaints.
It will also take on the Department of Health’s aged care licensing functions from next year.
With the aged care royal commission ramping up work on its
review at the same time, making
its first call for public submissions
on Christmas Eve and preparing
for a formal opening at a procedural hearing in Adelaide this month,
the ACQSC is expected to launch
into a flurry of early work.
The ACQSC will have a four-year
budget of almost $300 million and
will employ dozens more senior
compliance officers than its regulatory predecessors, according to
OVER 10 PACKS TO CHOOSE FROM
Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt. “A
single commissioner overseeing
compliance monitoring, complaints and customer service
means no more silos,” Mr Wyatt
said. “In another first, the commission includes a new chief clinical
adviser to oversee quality care
delivery across the nation.”
Its inspectors are likely to swoop
on at least one-third of the State’s
240 aged care homes this year, as
the new agency moves from prearranged inspections to unannounced visits, and service providers prepare for the new standards
in the middle of the year.
The launch was welcomed by
aged care advocates yesterday as
an important step forward for consumers and their families.
COTA Australia boss Ian Yates
said bringing the sector’s regulatory regime under one roof would
ensure concerns and complaints
did not fall through the cracks between agencies, and its remit to
examine home care providers was
also an important step forward.
“It will end any confusion about
where to go for help for people, and
their families, who often can be a
bit reluctant to make a complaint
in the first place,” he said.

A grandfather spent New Year’s

when he confronted a gang of
youths who were smashing glass
near his Busselton home.
Tom Whitelaw was left covered
in blood after a scooter was swung
into his head during the attack
about 10pm on Monday.
“He picked up a scooter and

“Just in the eye . . . he knocked

He has a suspected fractured

But the roof tiler is also concerned about a wound on his knee,
which he fears will stop him getting back to work.
Neighbours rushed to help the
59-year-old and pinned down one
suspect until police arrived.
The suspect was released without charge and police say he is
assisting with their inquiries.
There were 10 to 12 youths allegedly involved in the incident.

Keen to reach higher summits
Steve Plain tells
of the highs and
lows of achieving
his goal of
reaching summits
on each continent
“What are you going to do next?”
That is the most common question I have been asked since
returning home in May.
The year 2018 has come and
gone in a blur. Years of training
and preparation led up to this
one year and now it has disappeared in what seems like a
dream. Back home in Perth,
back at my day job, the joys (and
suffering) of the mountains are
just a distant memory.
Left lingering is that one burning question which I’ve frequently been asked but am still
struggling to answer.
This time last year I was filled
with nervous excitement as I
undertook final preparations for
the biggest challenge I had ever
set myself, Project 7in4! My goal
was to climb the 7 Summits, the
highest mountain on each of the
seven continents, in under four
months. If successful it would be
a world record.
It was an idea I concocted
while lying in hospital in 2014
with a broken neck from an accident and had turned into an
obsession.
Leaving Sydney in January,
laden with two big expedition
duffels, I said an emotional farewell to my family before boarding my flight for South America
and on to Antarctica for the first
of the 7 Summits, Mt Vinson.
Summiting Mt Vinson on
January 16 marked the start of
my 7 Summits attempt. From
there on, I was racing the clock.
Returning to South America, I
met my friend and climbing
partner Jon Gupta in Mendoza,
who was joining me for the
remaining climbs. In the next
five weeks we climbed Aconcagua in Argentina; Kilimanjaro
in Tanzania; Carstensz Pyramid
in West Papua; Kosciuszko in
Australia; and Elbrus in Russia.
We were well on track but the
hardest was yet to come.
Steve Plain at the summit of Mt Everest on May 14, the last of the 7 Summits.
Denali, in Alaska, is North
America’s highest mountain. It
is a cold, tough mountain at the
best of times but we weren’t
doing it at the best of times. To
complete the 7 Summits in under
four months, we were attempting it out of season in late winter.
After a week of pack hauling
and dragging sleds through deep
snow on the lower glaciers, we
made it to 14K Camp, midway up
the mountain. It was there that
our luck of good weather ran
out. Hit by a storm with temperatures below minus 30C and
winds gusting above 100km/h,
we were tent bound for three
days. The gusts sounded like a
My2018
freight train roaring down from
the ridge above. Even encased
with our snow protection walls
our tent was taking a battering.
With a small break in the
storm, we pushed for the summit
from 14K Camp, skipping the
normal high camp. What ensued
was the longest, toughest day of
the entire expedition.
As we pushed higher and higher, in the back of my mind was
the waiver we signed with the
National Parks ranger when
applying for our permit, ac-
knowledging that we would be
the only team on the mountain
and that rescue services weren’t
available at that time. If we went
in, we had to get ourselves out.
Scenarios
were
running
through my mind. How long
should we keep going? When
should we turn back?
We reached the summit just
before 10pm. From our vantage
point we could see a faint glow
from the sun below the horizon.
The rest of the sky was black.
The temperature by that stage
had fallen below minus 45C. It is
hard to describe just how cold
that is. Even the water bottles
inside my down suit had frozen.
After a long descent through
the night, we made it back to
camp at 5am. A gruelling 20
hours after we set off. We were
exhausted but elated. It was then
that Jon said to me, “Congratulations, the 7 Summits world record is yours”. After all, we had
only the simple matter of Everest to go.
After what we’d endured on
Denali, Everest was comparatively easier. We acclimatised
early and then it was just a game
of patience, waiting for the right
weather window. We took the
first opportunity, summiting on
May 14 and stopping the clock on
our 7 Summits attempt at 117
days, beating the previous record by nine days.
It was important to me to give
back to those who helped me in
2014 after my accident. With
incredible generosity from everyone who supported Project
7in4, we raised more than $45,000
for Surf Live Saving WA and
SpinalCure Australia.
After my expedition I was honoured to be named Australian
Geographic Society’s Adventurer of the Year, and had the
chance to meet the Duke and
Duchess of Sussex, Harry and
Meghan.
However, returning home
after such an amazing journey
has been difficult.
People often talk about “postexpedition blues”. The come
down and return to normality
after a long expedition. It is an
adjustment to fit back into society. But I’m not sure if that is it.
For me, I feel an emptiness, a
void, a lack of direction.
For four years I had worked
towards a single goal. Summiting Everest, and completing the
7 Summits, was not the euphoric
moment I thought it would be. It
was a solemn moment of reflection. I was left asking myself the
question everyone else has been
asking me since, “what is next”.
Part of the reason I set myself
the goal was that I wanted to test
myself physically and mentally.
I wanted to see what I was truly
capable of. The 7 Summits was
an amazing journey, one I’ll look
back on for years to come.
However I don’t feel like I was
tested to my limit.
So what am I going to do next?
I’ll let you know when I know.

Kim warns the US over nukes
Simon Denyer and Min Joo Kim
Pyongyang
North Korean leader Kim Jong
Un renewed his commitment to
denuclearisation yesterday and
said he was ready to meet President Donald Trump for a second
time but warned the US not
to “misjudge” his patience.
In a nationally televised
annual New Year’s Day speech,
Mr Kim balanced a willingness
to talk with a reminder that
North Korea had its own
demands if the peace process
and denuclearisation talks were
to succeed.
He demanded that South
Korea end joint military exercises with the US and warned
Washington that if it continued
to maintain sanctions and pressure, Pyongyang could walk
away from the negotiating table.
He called his June summit
meeting with Mr Trump
“instructive” and said they had
shared “constructive opinions”
on mutual concerns and “speedy
solutions to the tangled issues”
they faced. “I am ready to
sit face to face with the US
President again, any time in
the future, and will strive
to produce an outcome welcomed by the international
community,” he said.
“However, if the US does not
keep the promises it made in
front of the world, misjudge the
patience of our people, force a
unilateral demand on us, and
firmly continue with sanctions
and pressures on our republic,
we cannot but seek new ways
to protect our autonomy and
interests and establish peace
and stability on the Korean
Peninsula.”
Mr Kim delivered the speech
in a more relaxed setting than in
previous years, sitting in a plush
leather armchair in a book-lined
study, with big paintings of his
father and grandfather on the
wall behind him.
The speech, primarily aimed
at a domestic audience, mostly
focused on the economy and the
need for self-reliance, technological progress and scientific
research

314 die on

Bangkok
A total of 314 people died and
more than 2800 have been
injured in road accidents in
Thailand since December 27,
according to Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.
On New Year’s Eve, 72 people
were killed, while almost 600
people were injured throughout

locally, concluded yesterday.
Last year, 423 people died and
more than 4000 were injured
over the same stretch. In 2016,
478 road fatalities were recorded
during the week-long period.
Drink-driving was the primary cause, accounting for
about 40 per cent of all the accidents, which mostly involved
motorcycles.

ninth-deadliest in the world,
according to the World Health
Organisation. It was ranked as

Overrun city to charge tourist tax
Venice
Invaded by 24 million tourists a
year, Venice is to charge visitors
a tax of up to €10 ($16) each in a
move approved by the Italian
Government.
The measure, which will bring
in tens of millions of euros a
year to the World Heritage city,
was contained in Italy’s 2019
budget, passed at the weekend

after months of acrimonious
wrangling with Brussels.
Venetians have long complained that day-trippers and
cruise ship passengers cause
congestion and leave rubbish
across the city without making
an economic contribution. Of
the 24 million tourists who visit
Venice each year, about 15 million are day-trippers.
They will now be hit with the
charge, likely to be included in
the cost of their bus, train or
cruise ship ticket and then
passed on to the city authorities.
The tax will range from €2.50
to €10 a person, depending on
whether it is low or high season.

Nantucket, Massachusetts
Kevin Spacey will plead not

week, lawyers for the actor have
reportedly confirmed.
The
59-year-old
two-time
Oscar winner is accused of groping an 18-year-old employee of
the Club Car, a restaurant and
bar in Nantucket in July 2016.
In documents filed in Nantucket on Monday, obtained by
news website TMZ, he asked the
judge that he be exempt from the
January 7 arraignment, arguing
his presence would “amplify the
negative publicity already generated in connection with the
case”. His lawyer said his presence would heighten the “prejudicial media interest” in the case
and contaminate the jury pool.
The allegation was first made
public by the accuser’s mother
in November 2017. Her son told
investigators he had approached
Mr Spacey for a photo and drank
heavily with the actor before the
alleged assault took place.

EDITORIAL
Tougher line
needed to keep
worst drivers
off the road
S
ome people, through their actions,
should forfeit the privilege of
driving on our roads.
But a combination of the law and
the way it is enforced in this State
makes it rare that a dangerous driver is
given anything close to a life ban. And even
when that penalty is imposed, there appears
to be a lack of steel in the judicial response
when a ban is flouted.
A Perth court was told this week that
Matthew David Molloy, the man accused of
causing the crash in which a family of eight
were injured on Saturday — including a
five-year-old boy who is in a critical
condition — had been banned from driving
for life. Yet here he was back on the road
and allegedly, as the court was told,
“causing untold misery for an innocent
family”.
The court was told Mr Molloy had an
“appalling” driving record, including
stealing cars, reckless driving and failing to
stop. He had only ever held a learner’s
permit, not a full driver’s licence.
A person caught driving while under a
lifetime ban faces a maximum penalty of 18
months jail and a $4000 fine.
Licence suspensions are routine for a
range of offences but it is still common for
people to be nabbed for driving while under
such a ban. Obviously, it is worth the risk
for many drivers to ignore the ban. If an
offender sees the penalty as a slap on the
wrist they will not be dissuaded from
getting back on the road.
Mitchell Walsh was dubbed WA’s worst
repeat offender on the roads but the law
struggled to keep even him off the roads.
Walsh was drunk when he ran over and
killed 10-year-old cyclist Jess Meehan in
2003.
A year ago, he was in court for driving
with drugs in his system, and was fined $500
and disqualified from driving for three
months. His record then included seven
convictions for drink-driving and eight for
driving without a licence or while under
suspension.
Incredibly, he has been jailed only once
for his indiscretions and only for nine
months. That was in May 2014, when he was
also handed a 15-month driving ban.
Shadow road safety minister Peter
Katsambanis has called for a mandatory
five-year jail term for anyone who breaches
a lifetime driving ban. That idea, which
drew support from road safety expert Max
Cameron, is worthy of debate.
The courts need to get serious about
keeping dangerous drivers off our roads.
And policing the law needs to come with
real teeth. Ultimately, it is a matter of
public safety. There needs to be far tougher
action on repeat offenders who continue to
thumb their nose at the law and put
innocent road users in danger.

To hit anyone is assault,
adult or your own child
Linda Savage
F
ew things cause more outrage
than suggesting that parents
should not have the right to
discipline their children. It is a
brave person who stands
between a parent and their right to
slap their child.
But imagine this.
You are walking down a street. The
person in front of you drops a piece of
rubbish. You explain to them firmly,
but kindly that they mustn’t litter. You
give them a slap across their hand. Not
too hard, no damage done. So they
know that what they are doing is
wrong.
They are shocked. How dare you
assault me. They threaten to call the
police.
Then you see a child. Someone else’s
child, dropping litter. You explain to
them that they mustn’t drop rubbish.
You give them a slap on their hand. Not
too hard. Just to ensure they got the
message that littering is wrong.
The child’s parent is incensed. How
dare you touch my child. Only I have
the right to discipline my child. They
threaten to call the police.
And your own child. Never drop
rubbish you tell them. But they do. You
slap them. No real damage done. Just
to make sure they get the message.
Not a word from anyone.
In Australia, corporal punishment —
smacking, spanking, belting or hitting,
is not considered child abuse, as long
as it is “reasonable correction” or
“reasonable chastisement”, and is done
by a parent or carer.
These are murky and imprecise
terms. NSW is the only State that has
tried to define what is “unreasonable”
corporal punishment, describing it as a
force applied to any part of the head or
neck of a child, or to any other part of
the body that results in bruising,
marking or other injury lasting longer
than a “short period”.
What is clear though is that it is
always an unfair fight. Adults are big.
Children are small. And the smaller
they are, the more vulnerable they are.
Children aged three to five are more
likely than other children to be
physically disciplined. Children with
disabilities are 3.6 times more likely.
For decades, child advocates have
pondered why physical punishment is
still acceptable and regarded by some
as a legitimate disciplinary and
parenting strategy.
This is especially so given the
evidence that there is no clear benefit
or positive outcome using corporal
punishment. In fact there are negative
outcomes for children, including that
they are more likely to develop
aggressive behaviour themselves.
In the adult world, striking,
touching, moving or applying force of
any kind to another person, either
directly or indirectly, without the
person’s consent, is an assault. It need
cause only “some degree of pain or
discomfort, however light”. In fact, an
assault charge can arise from “an
attempt or a threat where the offender
has, or appears to have, the ability to
carry out the assault”. Even an
unwanted kiss can be an assault.
Adults agree that there is no
justification for striking each other.
Yet in a 2017 survey by Relationships
Australia, 37 per cent of men and 22
per cent of women said parents should
be able to use corporal punishment to
discipline their children.
The use of physical punishment to
“correct” behaviour has a long and
ugly history. For centuries men had
the right to beat their wives and
children. Beating slaves and servants
was accepted as the lawful right of
their owners or employers.
The defence of reasonable correction
is a 21st century remnant of this
attitude towards children.
The United Nations Convention on
the Rights of the Child says that
children must be protected from all
forms of violence, including physical
violence.
It also says that countries that are
signatories should respect the rights
and duties of the parents to provide
direction to the child. This is
interpreted as giving parents the right
to “discipline” a child, even though the
convention does not explain what that
discipline is and how it should be done.
In Australia, the legal protection
adults take for granted from deliberate
assaults, is denied to children.
Children are specifically marked as
deserving less protection, even though
their size and cognitive development
makes them particularly vulnerable to
physical and emotional injury.
Nearly all physical discipline on
children occurs behind closed doors,
without witnesses. Just like domestic
and family violence and sexual abuse
of children.
Knowing this should be enough to
ban the right to use any physical
means against children — right now
and under any circumstances.

Heat’s on over power prices
Paul Murray
T
here are few things
more important to
West Australians than
the cost of energy, both
to their domestic
budgets and the economic
health of the State in which
they live.
So a new report on our
electricity system by the
Economic Regulation Authority
will create a major test by
which electors will judge the
McGowan Government in two
years.
A new ERA discussion paper,
which is leading an inquiry into
WA’s wholesale electricity
market, notes that power prices
have risen 50 per cent in the
past six years.
While most of that is not
Labor’s fault directly, failure to
do something to reverse the
trend over the next two years
most certainly will be.
As Daniel Mercer reported in
The Weekend West, the ERA
paper says consumers are likely
paying too much for power
because the government-owned
Synergy is exploiting its market
dominance.
If that idea takes hold in the
community — and if the
Government is not successful
in doing something to bring
down what the ERA says are
inflated power prices — this
issue will explode.
Just slowing the rate of
increase won’t be enough, given
the oft-repeated Labor canard
that government ownership of
power utilities lowers prices.
In this case, the ERA is
suggesting Synergy’s control of
most of WA’s generation
capacity appears to be pushing
them up — with government
acquiescence.
Mercer recently exposed
another interesting
government document, the
Public Utility Office’s
evaluation of Federal Labor’s
plans to lift the amount of
green energy to 50 per cent by
2030.
The PUO estimated the policy
Illustration: Don Lindsay
would add an extra $946 million
a year to WA energy costs
compared with a
business-as-usual approach.
Labor’s shadow energy
minister Mark Butler
unconvincingly responded that
the modelling was flawed
because it presumed WA would
need the same benchmark as
other States.
He asserted that some States
such as South Australia and
Tasmania would do much more
of the heavy lifting under the
policy.
Frankly that argument is
nonsense. Neither of those
States has the energy demand
nor the economic capacity to
affect the national outcomes
much.
Butler claimed that not all
States would have to meet the
50 per cent target by 2030,
which if true would set up some
vicious tensions between the
various jurisdictions over
discriminatory costs and
burden-shifting.
The response to the PUO
analysis was either naive or
shifty — or both.
Aside from his Federal
colleagues’ extreme policies,
WA Treasurer Ben Wyatt is
besieged by a nasty mix of local
political and economic
pressures. This is a precis of
some of them as set out in the
new discussion paper:
“The ERA has investigated
the usual drivers of price
increases, demand and fuel
costs, and has found that these
do not seem to be driving up
prices.
“Overall demand is low, and
the profile of demand is
changing as consumers
continue to install rooftop solar
photovoltaics. The output from
rooftop solar during the middle
of the day lowers demand on
the network, but demand then
increases rapidly when the sun
goes down and consumers turn
on their appliances in the
evening.
“Increased use of gas-fired
generators to provide the quick
ramp-up in generation to meet
the evening peak could be
driving higher wholesale costs,
but the ERA’s initial analysis
does not support this.
“Higher prices in the WEM
(wholesale electricity market)
may also result from the use of
market power. Synergy is
dominant in the WEM through
owning or controlling around
80 per cent of electricity
generation.”
What the ERA noted is that
two mild summers weakened
demand and should have led to
lower prices. But it didn’t.
So here’s the ERA’s
immediate bad news for power
users:
“Current forecasts indicate
that summer 2019 temperatures
will be above average. When the
temperature increases demand
will increase, and electricity
prices can be expected to rise
further.
“While the current low level
of demand appears to be
putting downward pressure on
wholesale electricity prices, a
change in the profile of demand
could drive balancing prices in
the opposite direction.”
But the ERA points to an
even bigger problem and one
which will again pit Wyatt
against the powerful unions in
the energy sector:
“The ERA is concerned that
Synergy’s dominance and the
lack of competition in the WEM
could enable Synergy to
exercise market power and
push up wholesale electricity
prices.
“At the time of writing,
Synergy was under
investigation into its pricing
behaviour.
“High wholesale prices are
ultimately passed through to
consumers, who may be
charged more for electricity
than would be the case in a
competitive market.
“Competitive pressure also
creates efficiency as firms seek
ways to reduce their costs of
production to remain
competitive.”
And the ERA threw down the
gauntlet to the Government to
stop Synergy gouging its
customers.
“Synergy’s dominance in the
WEM is likely to persist for the
foreseeable future,” the ERA
said.
“In the absence of
competitive pressure, Synergy’s
market power needs to be
reduced to limit the extent to
which Synergy can misuse its
market power to push up
wholesale prices.
“Only when Synergy’s
market power is curtailed will
market participants have
confidence that wholesale
prices are efficient and
reflective of underlying market
characteristics, such as:
changes in demand and supply
costs.
“The ERA is still of the view
that restructuring Synergy
remains the best way to curtail
Synergy’s market power in the
wholesale or retail markets.
“However, restructuring
Synergy has not been
government policy.”
So now the rubber hits the
road.
Will the unions allow Labor
to introduce more competition
to Synergy to drive down
politically damaging high
power prices?
Can Synergy be broken up
and sold?
Or will the McGowan
Government be held hostage to
both green ideology and
industrial bullying as power
prices continue to soar?
And will the public finally
wake up that they are being
played for suckers?
The ERA’s final report, due
midyear, is a ticking time-bomb
for Labor. Its separate inquiry
into Synergy’s pricing
behaviour ends on January 25.
Step-by-step third way a cheaper solution for Freo port
Brad Pettitt
I
n recent years a false choice
has been asked of Fremantle
and its working port.
First, a few years ago we
were asked to accept the
Perth Freight Link — a project
that included a tunnel from Roe
8 to High Street that would
enable Fremantle port to treble
in size to more than two million
containers a year.
This was rightfully rejected.
It was an expensive and
incomplete plan that came out
of nowhere and was so poorly
conceived it didn’t even make it
across the river into the port. I
am glad the community won
this campaign and the freight
link has been shelved.
More recently, it has been
argued Fremantle must give up
its working port to Kwinana
and accept just being a tourist
port. This wholesale shifting of
the container port would erode
Fremantle’s history and
identity, and lead to a big loss of
economic activity at a time
when Fremantle is rebuilding
and diversifying its economic
foundations.
The Perth Freight Link and
moving the inner Fremantle
port to the outer harbour in
Kwinana are bad choices for
Fremantle. They are also bad
choices for the State.
As Paul Murray outlined on
these pages on Saturday, the
environmental impacts of the
outer harbour on Cockburn
Sound may prove to be
unpalatable, as were the
environmental impacts of Roe 8
and the freight link on the
Beeliar wetlands.
Both projects also require
massive infrastructure
investment. Roe 8 and the
freight link were costed at more
than $2 billion. An outer
harbour is likely to cost
between $4 billion and $6
billion.
But there is a third way
between an oversized port in
Fremantle and none at all.
This would have container
handling maintained at North
Quay with investments in
freight transport to reduce the
impact of trucks on local
communities.
Also, the south side of the
port, Victoria Quay, would be
developed for community,
tourism and commercial uses
— in particular with improved
facilities for cruise ship
passengers. To facilitate this,
car imports through Victoria
Quay would be transferred to
the outer harbour in Kwinana
as soon as possible. This third
way is a far cheaper option with
medium-term costs in the
hundreds of millions rather
than the many billions of
dollars. It will require a
replacement for the old
Fremantle Traffic Bridge that
includes a dedicated freight rail
line to enable more port freight
to be moved on rail during the
day. But this old bridge is up for
replacement anyway.
It will require smarter use of
our road freight network so
quieter, cleaner trucks run
fully loaded in both directions
and more often in off-peak
hours.
This is not to argue that a
second harbour will not be
required. It most likely will and
we should plan for this as is
happening with the Westport
task force’s work and analysis.
But there is no need to rush
into making one of Perth’s
biggest infrastructure
investments. There has been
slow container growth over the
past five years and there is
uncertainty around the growth
in imports by volume given
much of what we consume is
getting smaller.
Fremantle council has been
consistent in its support for a
working port in Fremantle and
for the necessary long-term
planning for a second harbour.
We have long argued that the
port infrastructure investments
should be broken into smaller,
more sustainable bits and that
should start with moving car
imports from Victoria Quay.
Fremantle port needs to
evolve but let’s not hurry into
expensive and damaging
solutions. We have the time to
invest carefully and wisely and
find a better third way.

Build a new team
Are we really that desperate to
win at all costs that we have to
bring Dave Warner and Steve
Smith back into the side
urgently?
Together with Cam Bancroft,
who was really Warner’s
bunny, these three brought our
country and its national team
into total disrepute.
Now, it seems, all is forgiven.
I note that the same pundits
who were totally outraged at
the trio’s actions are now more
forgiving with an Indian Test
victory on the cards. So
obviously the old “win at all
costs” ethos that was supposed
to be relegated is again front
and centre.
While Bancroft and Smith
have openly admitted their
culpability, Warner has
remained silent and has never
actually apologised for his
actions.
I would sooner see us build a
team from scratch and take
some losses than treat these
people as some kind of fallen
heroes. Surely there are some
decent up-and-coming players
out there?
Geoff Dunstone, Palmyra
Big Bash brickbat
In Langer’s lament (Sport,1/1),
Justin Langer refers to “most
of our batters”. When I hear
the coach of the Australian
Test cricket team refer to
batsmen as “batters”, it tells me
that — maybe if only
subconsciously — the
razzle-dazzle vernacular of the
T20 Big Bash rubbish has
penetrated his mindset.
As per the accompanying
article, Revolt in air over
domestic one-dayers (Sport,
1/1), we have sold Sheffield
Shield cricket — and the solid
foundation it gave players to
play four-day fixtures — down
the river on the altar of the
seven-week Big Bash season.
Test cricket in Australia has
one foot in the grave and the
other on a banana peel.
When it’s gone all that will be
left will be the Big Bash, which
is not attended by true cricket
followers, only by beer-swilling
bogans who go for the noise,
fireworks, loud music and
flashing lights.
Then Cricket Australia will
be able to look on its work with
pride.

Problem pitches
Pete Alby (Letters,1/1) suggests
I was critical of the MCG pitch
because Australia lost the Test
match.
Hardly. Justin Langer was
critical of the wicket in a Perth
radio interview on Monday
morning on 91.3 SportFM, and
Tim Paine was quoted in The
West Australian on Monday as
saying, “Australia’s job had
become all the more difficult by
home curators rolling the red
carpet out for India by
preparing inadequate pitches.”
Paine added that he’d prefer a
wicket with more bounce and
carry — as would most of us.

Nauru myths and Labor’s borders
Betty McGeever (Letters, 31/12)
is happy to take Bill Shorten at
his word that, “We will
continue to stop the boats and
make turn-backs and Operation
Sovereign Borders will be fully
resourced.”
When Kevin Rudd came to
power the Howard government
had stopped the boats and there
were four people in detention.
Rudd also assured us nothing
would change. But quick as a
wink the floodgates were
opened and the rest is history.
In her zealous support for
medical transfers, Ms
McGeever seems to ignore the
fact that Nauru has doctors, a
hospital and state-of-the art
medical facilities to cater for
detainees, whereas many rural
communities in Australia don’t
have anything like these
services.
Ms McGeever also states
“that several hundred lucky
refugees in the US did not start
up the people smugglers
again”.
Apparently, Nauru is not the
hellhole refugee activists like to
paint it, because many of the
“lucky refugees” who’ve been
sent to the US have, according
to ABC and other news reports,
contacted the Nauru
Government begging to be
returned.
That was after discovering
they had to work for a living in
in the US and are unable to
access the taxpayer-funded
welfare that Australia provides.

As an industry professional and

the fact that the Minister is
actually holding the metal

Further, the absence of safety
glasses would be a major
breach in any workplace. The
screwdriver has been painted,
modifying the electrical
properties of the insulation,
and is not recommended.
While it is appreciated that
this was a publicity photo,
during site inspections I have
noted the decline in work
standards that can be traced
back to the failure of the
vocational educational
institutions to deliver
pragmatic and realistic
training.
I have sat in a number of
meetings with TAFE and other
interested work parties in an
endeavour to ensure that the
curriculum is conducive to
required industry standards

Shocking skill set
Wendy Sekuloff (Letters, 31/12)

that is a major cause of
accidents on country roads —
that of impatience.
She rails against being
caught behind a convoy of
vehicles on Indian Ocean Drive,
having to drive at an average of
90km/h in a 110km/h zone.
First, she should realise that
speed limit signs are just that.
They are not speed indicator
signs. Moreover, unless she
were speeding, she could not
average 110km/h.
Second, caravans, trucks and
trailers are limited to 100km/h
anyway and are obviously
slowed by hills.
Third, let us posit that being
caught for say 60km/h at
90km/h instead of 105km/h,
she may be delayed by maybe
five minutes.
Perhaps an alternative
approach is to cruise along,
enjoy the scenery, and arrive
relaxed and refreshed.

of a perceived bias to the

Lord Warden Abbott?
Perhaps Skills Minister
Michaelia Cash (News, 31/12)
should have it pointed out to
her that, when using an
insulated screwdriver, do
not hold the uninsulated
end.
Fortunately, I noticed she
was working on a dummy
electrical board.
I was surprised that Tony
Abbott wasn’t recognised in the
New Year’s Honours List. No
one has done more to advance
the prospects of an ALP victory
in the coming election than
him. Perhaps recognition will
come later, following in the
Menzies’ tradition, when he is
appointed Lord Warden of the

Rumour has it that they are

want to recoup the money.
If the rumour concerning the

disgrace. As if it isn’t expensive
enough to actually park at the

Storm takes fizz out of fireworks
New Year’s Eve may come again
to several regional NSW towns
after dust and wet weather
forced firework displays to be
cancelled across the State.
A dust storm hit much of the
central west and rolled in over
Dubbo on Monday afternoon,
causing the town to call off its
annual fireworks that attracts
up to 8000 people.
Newcastle and Maitland also
cancelled fireworks shows after
being hit by storms.
The cloud of red dirt in Dubbo,
caused by a combination of dry,
strong winds and loose soil,
sparked safety concerns if the
fireworks had gone ahead.
“Any other night except that
would have been better but
that’s just how the cookie crumbles sometimes and everyone is
going to remember that New
Year’s Eve,” Dubbo mayor Ben
Shields said.
While the cancellation was
disappointing, the committee
that runs the event had no
option, the mayor said.
“You could see these giant
clouds rolling closer and closer
and it was extraordinary. It was
something out of a Hollywood

Mine bosses set to dig deep
Resources company leaders in 2019 will be bedding down deals and acquisitions and
getting projects under way, while contractors chase a wave of new developments
Bill Beament Northern Star Resources
Chris Ellison Mineral Resources
Northern Star Resources
boss Bill Beament is likely
to be spending a lot of time
this year focusing on the
company’s shiny new toy,
as he calls it.
When the gold miner
announced the $347 million
acquisition of the Pogo gold
mine in Alaska in August,
Beament described the
purchase as a “no-brainer”.
At a price of just $US63
per resource ounce and
Northern Star supremely
confident of boosting its
two-year mine-life, analysts
universally praised the deal.
Beament has since
pledged to turn the asset
into one of the lowest cost
gold mines in North
America within a year.
The company will apply
the same methodology to
Pogo that it did for its
Jundee mine, acquired
from Newmont in 2014 —
taking an old unloved asset,
looking at it with fresh
eyes, cutting operating
costs, lifting production and
extending mine life through
exploration.
Pogo adds another
250,000 ounces to
Northern Star’s annual
production profile and
allows the miner to skip
ahead of Evolution Mining
to become Australia’s
second-biggest gold
producer behind Newcrest
Mining. The underground
mining specialist expects to
produce 850,000oz to
900,000oz this financial
year at all-in sustaining
costs of $1050-$1150/oz.
On the home front, the
miner is in the midst of a
$60 million exploration
push this year aimed at
further extending the life of
its operations at Jundee
After a year of frenetic
deal-making, 2019 is
shaping up as a year of
execution for Mineral
Resources boss Chris
Ellison.
The New Zealand-born,
Perth-based rich-lister has
grand ambitions for his
listed miner and processor
but has also developed a
searing reputation for
getting things done.
Atop his list of priorities
this year will be bedding
down the $US1.15 billion
joint-venture deal he struck
with US chemicals giant
Albemarle over the
company’s Wodgina lithium
project last month.
MinRes will look to bring
its 750,000tpa spodumene
concentrate plant at
Wodgina into production
early in the new year and
then turn its attention to
getting started on a $2
billion, 100,000tpa lithium
hydroxide plant, using the
know-how of Albemarle for
its design.
If successful, MinRes will
become a serious player in
the global lithium market.
The company has already
made money from Wodgina
through the sale of raw,
low-grade lithium ore to the
Chinese, having picked up
the asset from Global
Advanced Metals for a song
in 2016.
And MinRes is an existing
producer of spodumene
courtesy of its now 50 per
cent stake in the Mt Marion
lithium project near
Kalgoorlie.
On the iron ore front,
MinRes made two
acquisitions this year in the
form of Koolyanobbing and
Kumina, and walked away
from a proposed takeover
near Wiluna and its
Kanowna Belle and
Kundana operations around
Kalgoorlie.
Northern Star has already
extended each of the
operation’s mine lives to 10
years.
Another focus will be the
miner’s recently acquired
South Kalgoorlie
operations, which Beament
believes hold huge
untapped potential.
The asset, which the
company acquired from
Westgold early last year,
lies 10-15km along strike
from the famous Super Pit,
with very little money
spent on exploration in the
past 20 years.
Beament ended the year
being rebuffed on his $150
million offer to buy out his
joint venture partners in
the East Kundana
operations.
The Anton
Billis-controlled Tribune
Resources and Rand Mining
waited until December 31 to
reject the offer as
opportunistic and under
the odds, but one suspects
it’s a story that has more
chapters to play out.
Northern Star shares
closed out last year at
$9.24, up an impressive 51
per cent on the $6.10 they
were trading for at the end
of 2017, making it one of
the top performers in the
S&P/ASX200 index.
It’s a tough act to follow
this year but a challenge
the evergreen Beament will
no doubt be up for.
Stuart McKinnon
Rob Velletri Monadelphous Group
Rob Velletri is looking for some
big contract wins this year.
The long-time Monadelphous
Group managing director has
three massive Pilbara iron ore
projects in his sights — a
mouth-watering prospect not
seen since the heady days of the
mining construction boom.
BHP’s South Flank, Rio Tinto’s
Koodaideri and Fortescue Metals
Group’s Eliwana have a
combined budget of about
$US6.8 billion ($9.6 billion).
“Compared to recent years in
terms of new projects, this is a
significant step up,” Mr Velletri
told shareholders in November.
Nothing is a given of course.
Plenty of players are vying for
the key construction contracts
on these projects.
But Monadelphous is a
leading contender and Mr
Velletri believes the $1.3 billion
engineering company is well
placed to secure work.
The contractor has in recent
years earned a lot of its revenue
outside mining. The big-ticket
jobs have come from LNG
projects — Inpex’s Ichthys
development alone contributed
more than $1 billion to
Monadelphous’ coffers.
Mr Velletri has also expanded
the company into the renewable
energy space through joint
venture Zenviron building wind
farms.
Any iron ore revenue may not
start flowing this financial year.
Monadelphous has forecast a 10
per cent fall in first-half revenue
from $874 million a year earlier.
Peter Williams
of Atlas Iron. The canny
Ellison still sees money in
the low-grade iron ore
market and the recent
tightening of discounts for
the 58 per cent product
looks like his recent bets
could pay off.
MinRes is also ploughing
ahead with its proposed
light rail “BOSS” plan linking
its Iron Valley project with
proposed new port facilities
at South West Creek in Port
Hedland.
Ultimately, Ellison is
eyeing BOSS as a low-cost
solution to stranded ore
bodies globally.
The company’s mining
services business continues
to hum along, generating
the lion’s share of MinRes’
cashflow, increasingly
through a profit-share

model as opposed to one
involving traditional
crushing contracts.
Other initiatives include
the Mackintosh joint
venture graphite project,
the synthetic graphite
partnership with Hazer,
plans to market a
lightweight carbon fibre
dump tray and developing
the assets of the former
Empire Oil & Gas to provide
energy for the company’s
increasingly sprawling
operations.
Ellison himself has
described 2019 as looking
like the most important year
in MinRes’ history.
But while execution will
be the focus, Ellison is
unlikely to stop doing deals
any time soon.

OBITUARIES
CLASSIFIEDS THE WEST AUSTRALIAN
EDITED BY
ROD MORAN

A stickler for detail
DR DEREK POCOCK
Forensics expert, philatelist
Born: London, 1931
Died: Perth, aged 87
Buzzers could change an
evening out for Derek Pocock
and his wife Carol, who were
both doctors. If the buzzing
came from his left pocket, he
needed to attend the scene of a
murder. If from the right, she
had to attend to a female assault
victim.
As a medical expert who
covered all the bases, Derek was
particular about using his own
eyes to decide, rather than
relying on others’ opinions.
The same meticulousness
applied to playing bridge and to
another passion, philately.
Whether choosing to bid
“three no trumps”, or planning
his postage stamps exhibits —
such as Forgeries and Fakes of
WA Swans, for an international
exhibition in China — he was a
man for detail.
One rare misfire was at an
auction where he intended to bid
for stamps of Nepal. A slight
alphabetic slip meant he got
Nicaragua instead. No matter.
He could adapt. He proceeded to
become such an authority on the
Central American nation’s
postage history that he mounted
an exhibit: Aerophilately, the
First Five Years of Nicaraguan
Airmails.
He was proud to be a stickler,
even on his own job description.
“In fact, ‘pathology’ is the wrong
word. It should be ‘forensic
medicine’ because pathology
implies disease,” he said. This
was not usually the case.
Dr Pocock’s insistence on
sober precision applied to
celebrities and the most
humdrum case. Immediately
after Judy Garland died in
London in 1969, there was
excitable talk about alcoholism
and drug abuse ending the life of
a 49-year-old household name
since appearing in the film The
Wizard of Oz. Dr Pocock, then
living and working in England,
conducted a post-mortem and
found neither cirrhosis of the
liver nor evidence of overdose.
Instead, he reported,
Garland’s blood showed a
chemical build-up from use of
sleeping tablets for decades.
The coroner recorded a
verdict of accidental death.
In 1972, Dr Pocock applied
successfully for a job with the
WA Department of Health,
based at Sir Charles Gairdner
Hospital. He and Carol, with
three children aged six and
under, arrived in January 1973.
Dr Pocock’s widowed mother,
Amy (nee Knight), emigrated
too. Her husband Reg’s death
from a stroke, when their only
child was seven, had been a
severe blow and she, at 75, was
now glad to continue playing a
full part in family life.
Derek and Carol would soon
discover substantial benefits
from the recent election of
Canberra’s first Labor Federal
government in 23 years.
Spending on health and family
Derek Pocock was a forensics expert and philatelist.
planning, an area that had been
a professional priority for Carol,
was being increased.
Derek Alan Pocock was born
in London on September 14,
1931. His father’s embrace of
Freemasonry entitled him to a
place at the Masonic School at
Bushey in north-west London.
He started as an eight-year-old
boarder, a week before turning
eight, just as World War II was
beginning. He recalled filling
sandbags to put outside
windows.
While at school, he became
fascinated by the pioneering
forensic exploits of Dr Bernard
Spilsbury, who had investigated
several suspicious deaths.
He resolved to become a
laboratory technician on leaving
school, and got his two years of
national service postponed until
completing training. His
hospital work was followed by
the requisite time in the army, of
which he remembered the
“pointlessness” of daily
activities such as marching.
He then studied medicine at
King’s College, London, where
he met Carol Deller. Her medical
career in Perth would include a
leading role in establishing, in
1976, one of Australia’s first
sexual assault referral centres.
The title of a book by Sigari
Luckwell, covering the couple’s
personal and professional lives,
was Right for Rape, Left for
Murder, alluding to the separate
buzzers that told which of the
two Pocock services was needed.
During Dr Pocock’s work in
several hospitals in the London
area, he had gained respect for
urging use of plain language in
evidence and report writing. He
also took a broader view of his
role than analysis of untimely
deaths. After arriving in
Australia, he started a training
scheme for mortuary
attendants, who previously had
merely learnt on the job.
Every aspect of forensics
required care, he prescribed.
During his first court case in
Perth, he was surprised to hear
himself referred to as “formerly
of the health department”.
Ever the careful listener, he
suggested correcting the record
to “formally”.
After retirement from official
links to Perth hospitals, he spent
10 years holding locum positions
in the Northern Territory and
Newcastle, New South Wales.
Away from the office, in his
60s and 70s, he had more time for
not only bridge and philately but
also his prolific collection of
postcards. He was a co-founder
of the WA Philatelic
Association. A former president
of bridge groups, he was a life
member of the Bridge
Association of WA.
Dr Pocock was still enjoying
bridge only days before his death
on November 17. He is survived
by Carol, their children Rob,
Geoff and Jenny, and eight
grandchildren. The Pocock
family mode was always to meet
challenges head-on. Their
arrival in WA almost 46 years
ago was on one of Fremantle’s
hotter Australia Day weekends.
A milk strike added to the
discomfort. Sunshine and fresh
pastures, however, gave them a
winning hand.

SUMMER RACING
Kersley bullish over
twin Perth Cup tilt
Ernie Manning
Hall Of Fame trainer Fred
Kersley predicts bold runs when
Ihtsahymn and Cappo D’Oro
launch his two-pronged assault
on Saturday’s $500,000 Perth
Cup (2400m).
Kersley said the pair were in
top order ahead of today’s
barrier draw, which is likely to
decide if cup rival Queen Bey
tackles the Group 2 Ascot
feature.
Ihtsahymn is a Kersley stable
favourite after wins in the Group
1 Kingston Town Classic
(1800m), Group 2 WA Guineas
(1600m), Group 2 Cox Stakes
(2100m) and Group 3 Strickland
Stakes (2000m).
“Saturday’s 2400m will suit
him,” Kersley said yesterday.
“I expect Ihtsahymn to run on strongly if he is
ridden quiet until the final stages.”
Trainer Fred Kersley
“I expect Ihtsahymn to run on
strongly if he is ridden quiet
until the final stages.”
Kersley said the $1.3 million
stake-earner could improve on a
seventh behind Mississippi
Delta in last Saturday’s Listed
ATA Stakes (2200m).
“He raced dourly and looked
in need of more distance,” he
said.
Steven Parnham retains his
mount on Ihtsahymn and
Joseph Azzopardi is the new
rider for emerging stayer Cappo
D’Oro.
Cappo D’Oro carries the
colours of Kersley’s former
champion Northerly.
The six-year-old’s breeder and
part-owner Neville Duncan also
bred and raced Northerly.
A recent win and placings by
Cappo D’Oro have been in good
company.
“He’s racing well and is holding form,” Kersley said.
Cappo D’Oro was a Group
3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m) runner-up before winning last
month’s Listed Towton Cup
(2200m).
Meanwhile, co-trainers Grant
and Alana Williams are keeping
their options open with cup
acceptor Queen Bey.
They have also entered her in
the Group 3 La Trice Classic
(1800m) and a 2200m handicap at
Ascot on Saturday.
“Queen Bey’s syndicate of
owners are keen on a cup start,”
Alana Williams said.
“But she’s drawn inside
barriers for the minor races
and it’s tempting to consider
them.
“We’ll see what she draws in
the cup and then have a conference.”
Queen Bey looked a cup prospect when winning over 2200m at
Ascot in November.
She has won twice and run two
places in her past five starts.

My word, Etymology is making an impact
Melbourne
Godolphin stayer Etymology
has finally come of age, taking
out the Listed Bagot Handicap at
Flemington.
Placed in two derbies and the
VRC St Leger as a three-yearold, Etymology had won only
three races before yesterday’s
success over 2800m.
The now six-year-old was
successful at his second start at
Pakenham in September 2015,
with his second win coming
in a class one race at Moruya last
April.
His most recent win was over
2500m at Flemington on December 22, which may prove a turning point in his career.
Ridden by Craig Williams,
Etymology was sent out the $2
favourite before racing to a fivelength win from Berisha ($7).
Kate Grimwade, the Melbourne-based assistant trainer
for Godolphin’s James Cummings, said the gelding may have
matured into his big frame.
“Staying seems to be the name
of the game for him and he’s
absolutely thriving on his
racing,” Grimwade said.
“I don’t think there’s any set
plans for him but we’ll obviously
have a really good look at the
program.
“It might mean a bit of a
freshen-up depending what’s in
the calendar, but we’ll have to
have a good look at our options
and James will come up with a
plan.”
Ben Melham rode Etymology
to his December 22 victory while
Williams was aboard when the
gelding ran third over 1720m at
Flemington on December 15.
“I could feel the confidence in
him from his last-start win the
way he took me to the gates and
the way he travelled in the run,”
Williams said.
“He had a lot of favours in the
race but he put them away well.
“Credit must go to the staff in
getting an old horse, in racing
terms, to be racing in the peak
of his form.” AAP

Accolades
flow for
Whispering
Brook win
Melbourne
The Darren Weir stable is likely
to chase a Group 1 success with
former WA galloper Whispering
Brook, who is unbeaten in two
summer runs at Flemington.
Whispering Brook backed up
her first-up victory at Flemington on December 15 with an
impressive win in yesterday’s
Group 3 Standish Handicap
(1200m).
Ridden by Dean Yendall,
Whispering Brook was the wellsupported $3.30 favourite and
held off $31 chance Smart Coupe
by three-quarters of a length,
with True Excelsior ($21) a neck
away third.
Weir was not at Flemington,
instead supporting the once-ayear meeting at Burrumbeet in
country Victoria.
Stable
spokesman
Brady
Cross said the stable would look
to set Whispering Brook for the
Sangster Stakes at Morphettville in May, a race in which she
finished fifth last year.
“She’s in flying form and with
each run she’s improving and it
was a really solid win today,”
Cross said.
“She had a lovely bit of cover
throughout and when she presented to the inside of Theanswermyfriend she let down and
found the line really strong.
“It’s a great result and a good
way to kick off the new year.”
Yendall said there was a lot to
like about yesterday’s victory
after Whispering Brook was left
in front a long way from home.
He thought he was in early
trouble after the mare began
quickly and was relieved to see
stablemate Theanswermyfriend
come through to take up his
customary role as pacemaker.
“I knew he was a good one to
follow and it was a good win,”
Yendall said.
“She hung tough all the way to
the line, so in the end it was a
good, strong win.”
Whispering Brook began her
career in Perth with Simon
Miller before joining Weir last
March and the win was her
fourth for the stable from six
starts. AAP

Bright start for Schabau
Melbourne
The Melbourne Cup may be 11
months away but trainer Robert
Hickmott is already in planning
mode with German import Schabau after his win at Flemington.
Hickmott prepared Green
Moon and Almandin to win the
Melbourne Cup for Lloyd Williams and was at Macedon Lodge
when Efficient won the 2007 cup.
Schabau’s lung capacity is the
best Hickmott has seen since
Efficient, the best stayer he
worked with in his time at Macedon Lodge.
The German-bred Schabau
made his Australian debut in the
George
Watson
Handicap
“That was his first Australian start ... I’m sure he’s
got a bright future.”
Schabau trainer Robert Hickmott
(2000m) yesterday and Hickmott
is planning a light summer campaign with a view to the spring.
Schabau arrived in Australia
with other spring carnival contenders but with the ‘house full’
sign up at Werribee, the fouryear-old served his quarantine
at Mickleham.
Because there were no training facilities at Mickleham,
Schabau was forced to miss the
spring which Hickmott said
might prove a blessing. Ridden
by Mark Zahra yesterday, Schabau was sent off the $3.80 favourite to defeat Prince Ziggy ($5.50)
by a head with Into Rio ($18)
another 33⁄4 lengths third.
“There’s plenty of improvement in the horse,” Hickmott
said.
“That was his first Australian
start and he can bounce off that
and I’m sure he’s got a bright
future.
“We’ll probably keep him to
2000 metres, maybe 2200 metres,
and maybe give him two or three
more runs and tip him out in
March and get him back for the
spring carnival.
“I’d like to set him for the Bart
Cummings and if he can win
that, that gives him a free ticket
into the Melbourne Cup.”
Apprentice Michael Poy says
his former champion jockey
father Michael Clarke would
have been the proudest person at
Flemington yesterday after
watching his son ride topweight
Five Kingdom to victory in the
Vale John Marshall Trophy.
Poy rode his first winner for
Lindsay Park in the race named
in honour of one of Clarke’s contemporaries, jockey John Marshall, who died last week.
Clarke had considerable success as stable rider for Colin
Hayes and then his son David at
Lindsay Park during the 1980s
and 90s. He was associated with
many of the stable’s champions
of the era, winning a Melbourne
Cup on At Talaq, a Cox Plate
on Almaarad, a Japan Cup on
Better Loosen Up and many
other feature races.
Five Kingdom, who was sent
out the $2.70 favourite, carried
the Lindsay Park colours of
white, green sash, black sleeves
and cap, worn by Better Loosen
Up, in his victory. AAP

White shows true colours
Craig O’Donoghue
Perth Wildcats import Terrico
White described his 22-point
game against Cairns on Monday
night as a confidence booster
after struggling to make an
impact throughout December.
White entered the game knowing he had to perform after
Bryce Cotton remained in Perth
with a hamstring injury.
The American had averaged
only 13 points from six games
since the international break in
November and coach Trevor
Gleeson demanded he become
more creative with his scoring
attempts.
The past few
games I’d been in
kind of a slump.
Terrico White
Gleeson also focused on White
during a time-out on Monday
and called on him to “step up”
with the game on the line.
The championship coach was
thrilled with White’s response
and sought him out on court
after the match to celebrate his
efforts. White said it was important for him to play well.
“I remember talking to coach
Trev all summer, way before I
signed to come to Perth,” White
said. “He’s a good coach. He
stays on me at practice. He just
wants the best for me.
“The past few games I haven’t
really been scoring, especially in
the fourth quarters.
“This game, I just wanted to
come out, play my game and take
my shots. I was fortunate I was
making them. The past few
games I’d been in kind of a
slump.
“This game I came out and
made my shots. It was a real
confidence boost.
“Instead of my first shot being
a three, I wanted to get a feeling
for the ball, drive to the basket
and get to the free-throw line.
After that I started taking my
threes.”
White has plenty of international experience after playing
around the world and said he
embraced the chance to lead the
team in Cotton’s absence.
The 28-year-old said he
ignored the external criticism
that came his way from basketball experts and focused on
doing his job.
“I don’t pay attention to that,”

Floyd bags $13m in first-round mismatch
Saitama
Floyd Mayweather knocked
down Japanese kickboxer
Tenshin Nasukawa three
times on the way to a firstround stoppage in their boxing
exhibition at Saitama Super
Arena in Japan.
Mayweather, 41, a former
five-weight world champion
who retired from boxing with a
perfect professional record of
50-0 last year, saw off an opponent 21 years his junior on
Monday.
In a bout that was scheduled
for three rounds, Nasukawa
lasted only 2min. 20sec. before
his corner threw in the towel.
Mayweather is expected to
pocket $US9 million ($13
million) from the fight, which
headlined an event organised
by Rizin Fighting Federation, a
Japanese mixed martial arts
organisation.
Mayweather had a 4kg
weight advantage over Nasukawa, who boasted an unbeaten record in 28 kickboxing
bouts and four contests in
MMA, with this fight having
no bearing on either man’s
official record.
Nasukawa, though, reportedly faced a multi-million
dollar fine if he attempted to
kick out at Mayweather.
A grinning Mayweather
started
confidently
and
dropped Nasukawa for the
first time with a left hook with
barely a minute gone.
A body shot followed by an
uppercut
moments
later
caused Nasukawa to slump to
the canvas again before a
one-two from Mayweather
precipitated the end of the
contest.
“It was all about entertainment, we had a lot of fun,”
Mayweather said after the
fight. “They wanted this to
happen in Japan, so I said ‘why
not’?
“I’m
still
undefeated.
Tenshin is still undefeated.
Tenshin is a true champion
and a hell of a fighter.
“I want the fans around the
world to support Tenshin.” PA
†
he said. “I go into every game
with the same mindset. I go out
there to play my game.”
The Wildcats returned home
from Cairns yesterday and face
another long trip for Sunday’s
game against New Zealand. That
clash will have the added
challenge of being played at 9am
WA time.
White said recovery was a
major focus this week.
“That was my first time going
to Cairns. The travel is kind of
tough,” he said.
“This New Zealand trip is
going to be tough — a seven-hour
trip. We’ve got to take care of our
bodies.”
Le Mans
another
level, says
Lowndes
Sydney
Supercars
legend
Craig
Lowndes has some bucket-list
races he wants to tick off and
won’t take umbrage at being
designated a rookie if he gets a
start in the famous Le Mans
24-hour event.
The 44-year-old three-time
Supercars champion and seventime Bathurst 1000 winner
finished as a full-time Supercars
driver at the end of last season,
but will still do the enduro
events in 2019.
He’s got the Bathurst 12-hour
race in February and will be
involved in media coverage of
Supercars.
Lowndes has made no secret of
his desire to do the Le Mans race,
something he has pondered for
more than 20 years.
“There’s been opportunities
in the past but unfortunately it’s
either clashed with Supercar
rounds here in Australia, or
we’ve been away and done other
things, so it has been on the
agenda since probably 1996,”
Lowndes said.
“It’s just a matter of getting
the contacts with race teams.
“We already know the 2019
race weekend of Le Mans clashes with the Darwin race in
Supercars, so thankfully I’ve
been allowed, if I can procure a
drive, to be released and be able
to go and do that if I can. Now it’s
just putting out the feelers and
seeing what’s out there.
“It’s a massive race. Growing
up watching Bathurst, is what
I’ve always wanted to do, lucky
enough to now win it seven times
but to do a Le Mans is probably
another level again.
“When I did Formula 3000 I
raced against Tom Kristensen
and he’s been a multiple (record
nine-time) Le Mans winner.”
Lowndes hopes the fact he
raced for factory teams and won
international races like Bathurst would get him classified as a
platinum rookie, the highest of
the four rookie levels for Le
Mans. Among the 2018 Le Mans
rookies were Formula One
world champions, Fernando
Alonso and Jenson Button. AAP

IN BRIEF
Basketball
Ikonomidis credits
rise to Italian regime
Emma Kemp
It’s hard to fathom that 21⁄2 years
ago Chris Ikonomidis was
locked inside a Serie A training
ground, trapped by the volatility
of Italian soccer and learning
lessons set to fuel his Socceroos
journey.
The Perth Glory star was then
21 and pursuing the European
dream, but he also experienced
the steep demands and punishment that came with losing a
game.
More than once with Lazio
and Serie B side Salernitana,
where he was on loan, Ikonomidis and his teammates were banished by the club hierarchy to
the training ground for an entire
week, forced to train, eat and
sleep there until the next game
when they would earn their free-
“The stuff I went through in Italy is definitely
helping me today.”
Perth Glory and Socceroos player Chris Ikonomidis
dom with a win. And the forward
wouldn’t change a thing.
Because, as harsh and absurd
such practices seemed, it was all
part of a baptism of fire in a
soccer-mad country that would
equip him with the technical
skills and mental resilience to
become one of the Socceroos’
Asian Cup keys.
“It had probably the biggest
influence on my career, my time
in Italy,” Ikonomidis, 23, said.
“I went there when I was 16
and only came back a couple of
months ago. You could say all my
youth development over there,
everything I learnt, was the Italian style, whether it was technically, tactically or mentally.
“I feel like I grew a lot going
over there and it was probably
the best decision I’ve ever made.
“The main thing that it gave
me, apart from my skills, was the
mental strength. I moved over by
myself and had to sacrifice a lot
to follow my dream of becoming
a professional.
“The stuff I went through in
Italy is definitely helping me
today. It keeps me more calm
and a little bit more centralised
in all my thoughts.”
Having shone on another loan
stint with Western Sydney last
season, the permanent move to
Perth offered “a breath of fresh
air” under coach Tony Popovic,
who’s “kept me on my toes” and
provided the stability he craved.
The result is six goals and two
assists in nine A-League appearances this season.
It was enough to earn Ikonomidis a Socceroos recall for the
Asian Cup defence in the United
Arab Emirates, and he has
already begun to repay Graham
Arnold’s faith with a maiden
international goal in their 5-0
thrashing of Oman on Sunday in
a friendly.
“I’m not going to lie and pretend it’s not special,” he said.
“To know that you’ve scored
for your country, it’s something
you dream of as a kid.”

underdone Glory stars skin to resume at United
Sydney
Perth coach Tony Popovic plans
to manage some of his underdone key players through a
gruelling January A-League
schedule.
Glory ensured they finished
2018 three points clear at the top
of the ladder with an emphatic
4-1 away victory over last-placed
Central Coast in Gosford on New
Year’s Eve.
Perth were 3-0 up at half-time
and cruised to a seventh win in
10 games.
“The players have done exceptionally well. Now we’ve
finished the year in first place, so
there’s a lot of good things to
look back on,” Popovic said.
“Now we’ve got to navigate the
tricky period and try and finish
the season strong.”
The first of four games in two
weeks enabled Popovic to pump
much-needed minutes into the
legs of some important players.
Socceroos centre-back Matthew Spiranovic played his first
full game of the season and
fellow defender Alex Grant
logged 90 minutes for the first
time in almost two months.
As well as managing those
players, Popovic also has to look
after attacking weapon Diego
Castro. AAP

Manchester United’s Alexis
Sanchez will return from injury
against Newcastle today and is
“champing at the bit” to finally
show fans what he is all about,
manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
says.
A lot has changed at Old Trafford since the 30-year-old’s last
appearance five weeks ago.
Laid low by a hamstring injury, Sanchez watched as Jose
Mourinho lost his job after United went on a downward spiral
that Solskjaer has got them out
of in some style.
The Norwegian has overseen
three straight wins and a 12-goal
haul since taking over as caretaker manager.
Sanchez is in line to make his
first appearance since November and start making amends for
a dreadful first year at Old Trafford.
“He’s had some great training
sessions the last few days ... we
have to manage him,” Solskjaer
said.
“But he’ll be involved, yes. He
wants to play all the time, he’s
one of those characters.
“He put himself available, but
it was a few days too early for
him. He’s not had enough
fitness.” PA

Match of my career,

Bridget Lacy
“It was a great experience, I am kind of sad it’s
over ... I’m like way too excited.”
Serena Williams
The battle for the ages between
Roger Federer and Serena Williams last night ended with
victory for the Swiss legend,
respect on both sides of the net
— and an epic selfie.
The much-anticipated mixeddoubles clash featuring the first
ever showdown between the two
all-time greats had plenty riding
on it, with singles wins earlier in
the night to Federer and Williams meaning the crunch Switzerland-USA tie hung on the
result.
And the defending Hopman
Cup champions now look like
they are marching back to the
final ahead of a clash with
Greece tomorrow night after
Federer and partner Belinda
Bencic edged out Williams and
Frances Tiafoe 4-2 4-3 (5-3) in the
short sets format.
The
14,064-strong
crowd
inside RAC Arena lapped up
the heavyweight showdown
between Federer and Williams,
who have combined for 43 grand
slam singles titles.
Williams held up her end,
dominant on serve throughout,
but Tiafoe was broken in the first
set before Federer served it out
in the second-set tie break to seal
the tie. Williams described
Federer as the greatest of all
time and said his serve was
under-rated.
“It was a great experience, I
am kind of sad it’s over,”
Williams said.
“I was so excited, and literally
it was the match of my career.
“It was so fun and it’s something that growing up, we grew
up together really, just watching
and having an opportunity after
all these years we’ve actually
never done this, so it’s just super
cool that we get to do this at such
a pinnacle point in both our
†
careers. I wanted to take
pictures, I wanted to bring my
baby out, I’m like way too excited.”
Federer admitted he was
nervous facing Williams’ serve.
“People talk about her serve so
much and I see why it is such a
wonderful serve because you
just can’t read it, you don’t see it
until the very end,” he said.
“It was great, great fun. She is
a great champion and you see
how focused and determined she
is and I love that about her.”
Earlier, Federer dispatched
Tiafoe, 20, in under an hour, 6-4
6-1.
Williams survived a scare in
her second match in as many
days, eventually overcoming
Bencic, 21, 4-6 6-4 6-3 after
squandering a 3-0 lead in the
first set.
Garbine Muguruza knows what
it takes to win a grand slam
event — and the Spanish star
believes Australian No.1 Ashleigh Barty is capable.
Having triumphed at Wimbledon in 2017 and Roland Garros in
2016, Muguruza is one of three of
the women’s game’s grand slam
singles champions in Perth for
the Hopman Cup alongside
Serena Williams and Angelique
Kerber.
World No.15 Barty, 22, is
among a wave of the next generation of stars trying to join that
elite category.
Spain and Australia do battle
at RAC Arena tonight. Muguruza, 25, will face Barty after a
tough three-set loss to Kerber on
Sunday.
“It’s a very positive start,”
Muguruza said.
“I know I start with one of the
players who had the best year so
I felt on a good level. I think we
both played very well so I’m
excited to keep playing like that.
“She (Barty) is super talented
and we’ve played many times. I
knew that coming here to the
Hopman Cup all the matches
were going to be tough so I’m
expecting a tough one.
“I think she has the talent (to
win a grand slam). Of course,
just to win those incredible tournaments it’s about showing the
talent in the right moment and
being consistent, you know, it’s a
lot of things but she can definitely do it.”
Muguruza began 2018 as the
world No.2 and ended it as the
18th-ranked woman after struggling with a string of injuries.
She said choosing to start her
season in Perth for the first time
was partly about breaking a
“curse” that had developed,
while she also wanted to play
alongside popular veteran David
Ferrer.
“I think there was a little curse
for me in Brisbane because I
played four years and the four
years I retired,” she said.
“I am really happy also to be
here with David because I think
he is such a nice guy and it is his
last season, so I’d like to share
that with him.”
Tournament favourites Germany will attempt to move closer to a second straight final
appearance at the tournament
in their tie with France today.

Sam’s home horror show
Warren Barnsley
Brisbane
Samantha
Stosur’s
woeful
record in Australia continued
after she was eliminated in the
first round of the Brisbane
International for the fifth time in
six years.
The Gold Coast local crashed
to a 4-6 6-2 6-2 defeat to Czech
world No.139 Marie Bouzkova at
Pat Rafter Arena yesterday.
The 34-year-old appeared set
for a rare home victory after a
strong opening set when she
responded to being broken in the
third game by breaking back
twice.
But the 74th-ranked Stosur,
who last reached the second
round of her home tournament
in 2016, fell away when qualifier
Bouzkova began serving well.
“I’m still really happy with quite a few things ...
I’ve still taken a step in the right direction.”
Samantha Stosur
Bouzkova was unstoppable in
the final two sets, losing only two
points on her first serve as wildcard Stosur was left to rue being
broken in the opening game of
the second set after saving five
break points.
“If I was able to hold that
game, you never know. Maybe
that gave her a bit of a sniff,” she
said.
In nine visits to Brisbane,
Stosur has not been beyond the
second round.
The 2011 US Open champion
will contest the Sydney International next week as she tunes
up for the Australian Open in
Melbourne, where she has lost
in the first round in her past
three attempts and not made the
third round since 2014.
Under new coach Nick Watkins, Stosur indicated this week
she had taken a fresh approach
to hard-court tennis — she prefers clay — in the past few
months.
She was unperturbed by her
form in the first-round loss as
she irons out her game.
“It’s not a total disaster,” she
said. “She (Bouzkova) played
well. I’m still really happy with
quite a few things that I did out
there and feel like I’ve still taken
a step in the right direction.”
American Sloane Stephens,
the 2017 US Open champion, was
also knocked out of the Brisbane
International in the first round,
by Briton Johanna Konta.
A 2016 Australian Open semifinalist, world No.37 Konta upset
third-seeded Stephens 6-4 6-3 in
under two hours to earn a
second-round clash with Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic.
It marked the 27-year-old
Konta’s 15th career victory over
a top-10 opponent and first
since knocking over world No.2
Simona Halep at Wimbledon in
2017.
“The first match of the year is
never easy,” Stephens said.
Stephens, 25, had hoped to
pick up where she left off in 2018
after entering a new season
ranked in the world’s top 10 for
the first time.
World No.46 Tomljanovic
began her Brisbane campaign
with a comeback 1-6 6-3 6-0 win
over Czech Katerina Siniakova.
“It’s always nice to win but I
felt kind of scrappy all around,”
Tomljanovic said after the victory over world No.31 Siniakova.
“I think I was a break down at
40-15 and it was 26 minutes (into
the match) and I was like ‘oh, my
God, it can’t get worse than this’.
“I just kind of kept at it. I didn’t
expect the third set to be so kind
of quick and easy.”
Australian No.2 Daria Gavrilova wasn’t so lucky.

Nadal touch-and-go for Brisbane opener
Brisbane
He may have made Brisbane
International promoters nervous but Rafael Nadal is confident
his injury-plagued body won’t
stop him from playing his best
tennis for years to come.
The world No.2 said he was
showing no signs of slowing
down despite a string of ailments limiting his 2018 season to
nine tournaments.
However, Nadal, 32, could give
no guarantees he would take the
court for his Brisbane International opener tomorrow after an
interrupted preparation.
The 17-time grand slam
winner has been given a Bris-

bane first-round bye as he eases
into his first ATP event since
retiring with an ongoing knee
complaint during the US Open
semifinals in September.
His off-season has also been
limited by November ankle
surgery.
Nadal’s lingering knee injury
forced him to pull out of the 2018
Brisbane International.
And he would have made promoters jittery when he baulked
after being asked whether he
would definitely play his Brisbane second-round clash this
week.
“I hope so. (But) I don’t want
setbacks. I want to step forward
and that is do the best things to
stay healthy,” he said.
“My goal is to be on court on
Thursday. So that’s the answer.”
For the record, Nadal is scheduled to take on the winner of the
first-round
clash
between
France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and
Australian qualifier Thanasi
†
Kokkinakis. Nadal admitted he
had endured a “tough year” but
insisted his troublesome body
would not stop him from remaining a force.
“I have plenty of years on the
tour. I know the things that
works well for me,” he said.
“I really believe that I have a
lot of tennis to play in my career
and I really feel that my body is
not going worse every year.”

exhibition tournament, the 2018

Spiderman Nick Kyrgios turned
in a superhero’s serving performance to escape with a Brisbane
International first-round win
yesterday.
Defending champion Kyrgios
relied on a fusillade of 45 aces to
beat American Ryan Harrison
7-6 (7-5) 5-7 7-6 (7-5) in a rematch
of their 2018 Brisbane International final.
Harrison’s game style, with
few long rallies, suited Kyrgios
as he started his season less than
a week after he had two days in a
Canberra hospital to be treated
for a spider bite.
“I know my serve is the shot
that usually gets me through
tough matches,” eighth seed
Kyrgios said.
“I was very rusty from the
back of the court. I didn’t hit too
much over the off-season. I was
happy to get through.
“It was fun to play here again.
Hopefully I can do something
special again.”
The Australian No.2 will play
France’s Jeremy Chardy, a 4-6
6-3 6-4 winner over German JanLennard Struff, for a quarterfinal berth.
It was Kyrgios’ first match
since his latest contentious
media conference on Saturday
in which he said that he became
sick of tennis last year and
did not practise on court
during an off-season which he
devoted to gym work and basketball.
Kyrgios served 28 aces in the
first two sets — an acceptable
tally for most men in a five-set
match — and still was locked at a
set apiece.
Australian No.1 Alex De
Minaur progressed to the
second round by dispatching
compatriot Alexei Popyrin.
World No.31 De Minaur was
hardly troubled in eliminating
his fellow 19-year-old Sydney
product in just over an hour last
night, winning 6-2 6-2.

FOURTH TEST
Wednesday, January 2, 2019
IT SEAMS STRANGE
Ben Horne
Sydney
Australia are resigned to the
possibility they may face reverse
swing, but not be able to bowl it
themselves.
One of the lingering fallouts
from the ball-tampering scandal
is how it might have affected
Australia’s everyday maintenance of the old ball in Test
cricket. Although it wasn’t likely
to be the topic of conversation
coach Justin Langer and selector Greg Chappell were going
around in circles on as they
walked laps of the SCG yesterday.
Australia are anxiously mulling over their team for a do-ordie final Test they must win to
ensure they don’t go down as the
first side to ever lose to India at
home.
Aaron Finch came to training
yesterday but didn’t bat in another sign his position at the top
of the order is in danger.
The other under-threat player,
“I don’t really remember getting too much
reverse swing last summer in the Ashes.”
Pat Cummins
Mitch Marsh, opted to rest from
training along with the fastbowling attack with such a tight
turnaround between two Tests.
On the surface it would seem
Marsh and part-time leg-spinner Marnus Labuschagne may
feature as part of a six-pronged
bowling attack — with Finch out
of the team — in a bid to take the
20 wickets they need on a potentially flat and turning pitch.
But there was no certainty
Langer and Chappell had come
to any sort of final decision by
the time they ended their stroll.
Meanwhile, the Australian
bowlers certain of selection
mulled over how they could
break an Indian batting line-up
— so impenetrable that they
declared twice in Melbourne —
without reverse swing.
Despite the fact there’s a generally accepted style of ‘work’
that international teams put into
making the ball go reverse after
40 overs, the stain left by Cape
Town has put Australia’s
players in a position where they
cannot afford any scrutiny on
what they’re doing with the ball.
Statistics revealed during the
Melbourne Test showed how
much more effective Steve
Smith’s Australian team was
last summer reversing the ball,
as opposed to what Tim Paine’s
team has been able to do against
India.
The Indian side hasn’t got the
ball to reverse a significant
amount, either, but there is a
difference and a reason for it.
Until the International Cricket Council shows that it’s willing
to be strict on borderline practices for aiding reverse swing, such
as throwing the ball into rough
patches of turf from the boundary, Australia may remain
prisoners of the past.
The entire landscape has
changed and Australia’s bid to
take 20 wickets at the moment is
likely to focus more on trying to
find conventional swing.
Quite simply, other teams may
find they can get away with more
than Australia without having a
microscope put on their every
move.
Fast bowler Pat Cummins says
he doesn’t believe reverse swing
was as big a factor 12 months ago
during the Ashes series as it’s
been made out to be, and therefore Australia’s inability to get it
this summer hasn’t been noticeable.
“We tried bowling some crossseamers (at the MCG) and it
just didn’t seem to scuff up as
much as a couple of days later,”
Cummins said.
“Sometimes you get a ball that
goes, sometimes it doesn’t. No
doubt they (India) bowled really
well with it, presented a really
good seam.
“And they’re probably more
suited to those conditions. I don’t
really remember getting too
much reverse swing last summer in the Ashes. I didn’t feel
like it played a massive part.
“I know last summer, traditional swing there was pretty
much none, and we thought
reverse swing was probably the
only way we’re going to get sideways movement. It didn’t really
happen at all last summer,
either.
“We know we’re going to be
out there for quite a while bowling, it’s a really good team. The
wicket’s pretty dry. So reverse
swing is a pretty big factor, especially I’d say for the other two
(quicks).
“Josh (Hazlewood) presents a
really good seam, we know what
Starcy (Mitchell Starc) does, but
it just hasn’t been a massive play
so far.”

Paine relishes role in Lyon master class
Ben Horne
They say the best keepers are the
invisible men but Tim Paine
disagrees.
Nathan Lyon is tipped to cause
havoc out of the rough when the
Sydney pitch wears this week
and the Australian captain will
relish the challenge of standing
up to the world’s best.
Paine seems to have so much
time with his glovework and
moves like he has an extra
second on his rivals, even when
negotiating the extra bounce
and spin that makes Lyon so
dangerous.
Paine revealed he and Lyon
had put hours of extra work into
their combination ahead of
Australia’s Test against India at
the turning SCG as he gave an
insight into what it’s like to keep
to the game’s No.1 spinner.
“In the Ashes last year we
went early together a lot and he
would do his bowling warm-up
and I’d catch them just to get
used to the extra spin and extra
bounce he gets,” Paine said.
“Once you adjust to the basics
it’s a bit of a mindset thing when
you keep to someone like Nathan
Lyon.
“If you’re saying ‘geez, it’s
going to be hard because he
spins it and bounces it’ then it’s
going to be a difficult thing.
“I love the challenge of keeping to him. I love the fact that if
you keep well to Nathan Lyon,
people notice it.”
Paine’s journey to Test cricket
is extraordinary. At 34, he has a
second life on the international
scene he never thought he’d get
and he is captaining his country
†
in extraordinary circumstances.
But Paine isn’t just satisfied
with the journey back, the Australian skipper is motivated to be
the best at his craft.
“I don’t subscribe to the old
theory that the best keeper is the
one you never notice,” he said.
“Keepers, that are OK, you
don’t notice. Keepers that are
bad you notice and I think keepers who are very, very good, you
notice.
“The more difficult a bowler is
or the conditions are to keep in,
the more I enjoy them.”

Labuschagne lights
up for fresh chance
MCG curator Matt Page
MCG saved
by rating of
‘average’
Eliza Sewell
Melbourne
The MCG won’t lose the Boxing
Day Test after the International
Cricket Council gave the
maligned pitch a rating of “average” for its condition last week.
The pitch was graded as poor a
year ago and another poor rating
by the ICC would have cost the
MCG three demerit points and
put it in danger of losing the
iconic event.
The most recent grading of
average does not carry demerit
points.
The new Optus Stadium pitch
in Perth for the second Test was
also graded average by the ICC.
A venue loses international
hosting rights if it accrues five
demerit point during a five-year
period.
Despite the 2018 pitch being
heavily criticised as flat and lifeless following day one of the
Boxing Day Test, it improved
throughout the match and India
posted a 137-run victory on day
five.
The Melbourne Cricket Club
has launched a five-year rehabilitation plan for its centre wicket,
with the first step to replace the
concrete slab in the middle of the
MCG with a concrete post and
rail system, in the hope it will
improve conditions for next
season.
The developments, due to
start in March, came as a
response to the 2017-18 pitch
rating.
At least four pitches will be
rebuilt with a new base formed
from a higher percentage of clay,
from the Grampians in western
Victoria.

Recalled all-rounder Marnus
Labuschagne insists his confidence hasn’t been dented after
being dropped and he can help
Australia salvage a drawn series
against India.
Labuschagne is set to make his
return to the Test arena at the
SCG tomorrow when Australia
face India in the fourth and final
match of the Border-Gavaskar
Trophy series.
The visitors hold a 2-1 lead
heading into the last Test after
beating Australia by 137 runs in
the Boxing Day encounter at the
MCG.
The loss has prompted national selectors to thrust Queensland’s Labuschagne into the
squad, with his handy leg-spin
likely to catapult him into the
final X1 on a spinning SCG pitch.
Labuschagne, 24, made his
Test debut in the October series
against Pakistan in the UAE, but
was dropped after two matches
and not even included in the
original squad to face India.
His axing was not overly surprising given Labuschagne’s top
score in four innings was 43 and
he registered only two 50s for the
Bulls in the first five matches of
the Sheffield Shield season.
The revolving door of Test
†
selections has crushed many
blossoming careers in the past,
but Labuschagne insists he will
pull on the baggy green again
with confidence.
“It’s never great to be dropped
but it’s part of professional
sport,” he said. “You need to be
able to come back from that. It’s
really about how you come back
from those setbacks.
“I made sure I was really positive with my body language and
how I was playing for Queensland and really enjoying that.
“I was trying to get wins on the
board for Queensland with bat
and ball and contribute where I
could.”
The South Africa-born Labuschagne’s Test scores improved
with every innings and he took
seven wickets against Pakistan
at 22.42.
He was dismissed for a duck in
his first dig then notched 13, 25
and 43 against Pakistan, including an infamous run-out when
he seemingly watched the ball
hit his stumps at the non-striker’s end.
Labuschagne has regrets from
his first taste of Test cricket and
he is determined to make sure
that doesn’t happen again, especially with a Gabba Test against
Sri Lanka to follow later this
month.

his self-titled debut EP. If
you needed validation of
his talent, you only have to
check out the line-up of
music heroes behind single
Sober, co-written by
Daniel Johns with Cosmo’s
Midnight. With more
of an R&B sound than his

These artists are all set to break out and
become musical superstars. There are
dozens of musicians from here and
overseas primed to make big impressions
on streaming platforms, radio airwaves and
festival stages in the next 12 months. So
please meet the Class of 2019 —
AAA’s pick of the artists poised to deliver
musical greatness this year.
Baker Boy
Kira Puru
There was a wave of
original indigenous
artists emerging into
the mainstream in
2018. At the front of
this talented pack was
Northern Territory
rapper, dancer, singer
and didgeridoo
player Baker Boy. His
single Cloud 9 — with
another emerging
artist, Kian — put the
Australian music
scene on notice.
But it was the next
track, sung in English
and Yolngu Matha,
which truly blew
people’s minds. A
new version of the
Yothu Yindi classic
Treaty and his single
Mr La Di Da signalled
there is an
inexhaustible well of
talent in this young
artist.
Australian producer and
talent scout Jon Hume
formed his own record
label specifically to launch
this Newcastle-born,
Melbourne-based artist. He
feared no one else would
get Puru’s radio-friendly,
dance-floor igniting
alternative pop music. His
instincts about this pop
shapeshifter and
electrifying live performer
proved spot-on, with her
self-titled EP quickly
clocking up millions of
Spotify streams. Her sassy,
sexy bass-driven grooves
could be heard pumping
out of cars and
headphones on trains, with
the singles Tension and
Molotov among the best
homegrown indie pop
tracks in Australia last year.
Cxloe
A survivor of the television talent quest circuit in
Australia emerged as a powerhouse pop
songwriter with her breakthrough hit Show You.
Her first two singles, Tough Love and Monster,
heralded her as a striking pop genre-bender who
offers a darker spin on love songs. But it was Show
You that truly exploded in recent
months. With more than six
million streams, the
ultra-sexy electro-pop
smash has won her
comparisons with Broods
and Lorde, scored her a
coveted Apple Artist of
the Week feature on the
music platform and
unleashed a global
bidding war to sign
the young Sydney
artist. Since quitting
her job in the family
pharmacy, Cxloe
has divided her
time between
the US and
home as she
continues
to work
on her
songwriting.
King Princess
The first signing to Mark Ronson’s new
artist label Zelig Records went viral with
her single 1950, courtesy of Harry Styles
posting a snippet of its lyrics. Now with
more than 200 million streams, she
capitalised on its momentum to release
her self-produced EP, Make My Bed, her
skills honed in her sound engineer
father’s studio as a child. The
success of Mikaela Straus, as
she is known on her passport,
has also underscored the rise of
the queer artist in 2018. You can expect
1950 to figure in the upper echelons of
the Triple J Hottest 100 on January 27.

Normani
The next big solo artist to
emerge from the ranks of
Fifth Harmony was a
constant presence on the
pop charts in 2018. She
paired with man-of-themoment Khalid to hit the
top 10 in the US with their
duet Love Lies, recorded
for the film soundtrack of
Love, Simon. Since then
she has collaborated with
dance pop powerbroker
Calvin Harris and released
Waves, a single with fellow
rising R&B star 6lack. She is
working on a debut album
with Pharrell Williams for
release this year.
Graace
Ears were pricked
when Graace’s inviting
voice arrived on Triple
J Unearthed courtesy
of her single, Cold
Without You. Managers
quickly came calling and,
within weeks, she was on
her way to a writing session
with hit maker Hayden James,
which would become their
monster hit, Numb. The 21-year-old singer and
songwriter toured the world with the DJ and producer
and knuckled down in the studio to record her debut
EP, Self Sabotage. The lead track, Last Night, has
confirmed her extraordinary ability to craft breezy
electronic pop that packs a lyrical punch.
Kwame
The biggest overnight rap sensation to hit
Australia this year was the most-played Triple J
Unearthed artist in 2018. The naturally
gifted rapper uploaded his single,
WOW, to the unsigned artist
platform and was quickly
added to Triple J and
Spotify playlists, amassing
millions of spins. The
21-year-old Sydney artist
scored a scene-stealing slot
at Splendour in the Grass and
kept the momentum on high
boil with No Time and
Clouds. The captivating live
performer will embark on a
national tour next month.

ver dreamed of making a sea

More Australians are eschewing the
bright lights and buzz of cities and
going rural, favouring the simple life
and the chance to venture “off grid”.
It’s no wonder UK series Escape to
the Country, which tracks Britons
making this kind of move, is extremely
popular here. And now there is an
equivalent — Down Under: Escape

In the new ABC series, everyday

Hall says.
“Both ways, it’s a major life shift. We
find options for them that might fit the
bill, and then we take them around
and view not only the properties but
the township or locations in general.”
A fan of the British version, Hall
spends half her time living rurally on
Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula, and
hopes to fully relocate when her
daughter finishes school.
She says the benefits of moving
away from capital cities are myriad.
“It’s all about lifestyle,” Hall says.
“It’s very basic stuff: no traffic, no
pollution, lower house prices, a gentler
pace, often friendlier people, the
chance to perhaps start a new career,
growing vegies, taking up new
hobbies. A whole lot of new
opportunities unfold, and rurally they
usually come at a lower price point.
“Our cities are overpopulated,
people are in debt more than ever,
often due to large mortgages, and the
greed on society has reached an
all-time high. Often, moving can clear
people’s stresses up.
“Everything fits together and you
realise that a lot of things you deal
with in the city, you just don’t need.”
She found guiding people through
their house hunt to be a rewarding
process.
“It was exciting if they liked the
property, but not so exciting if they
didn’t,” Hall laughs.
“Certainly, to watch the joy in
people’s faces reveal itself when they
walk into a property and go ‘Wow, I
could actually live here’ is pretty
special.”
And Hall has been thrilled to learn
that many of her new friends have

that’s really lovely,” she says.

Homing in on absurd comedy
Partnership fuels latest
take on great detective,
writes James Wigney
T
here is a running joke in Will
Ferrell’s new comedy, Holmes and
Watson, that might get a bigger
laugh in Australia than anywhere else in
the world.
In his absurdist take on Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle’s much loved and much
filmed detective, Ferrell took delight in
sending up some of the ridiculous
“scientific beliefs and misbeliefs” of the
Victorian era and decided that Sherlock
Holmes and his partner, John Watson,
would use their famous intellects to do
very stupid things.
“The comedy comes from not using
the best judgment even though they are
so smart — like trying to shoot down an
infestation of bees with a pistol,” Ferrell
says. “Or Holmes’ insistence on eating
raw onions all the time and trying to get
Watson to do the same. So while they are
making stupid decisions they are
coming at it from a place of science and
academia.”
Given Holmes’ peculiar tastes, it

KATIE HAMPSON explores the problem of
loneliness — a sad reality of modern life
A
t a time when social
media would have us
believe everyone’s life
is upbeat and full of
friends doing
incredible things together, the
irony is the world is becoming
an increasingly lonely place.
And, tragically, lonely people
are not just sadder — they are
unhealthier and die younger.
In 2017, Dr Vivek Murthy, a
former surgeon-general of the
United States, likened the
health impacts of loneliness to
smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
Previously, the priorities of
governments have mainly been
physical health concerns. But
for Dr Murthy, emotional
wellbeing was high on his list of
big public health worries.
The American Psychological
Association says loneliness is
creating a healthcare problem
akin to obesity.
Loneliness, they say, appears
to be reaching epidemic
proportions in some countries.
In the US, half of Americans
report they often feel lonely
while the problem has become
so bad in the UK, reportedly
costing employers up to $3.5
billion annually, that a Minister
for Loneliness has been
appointed.
In Australia, a 2016 Lifeline
survey of more than 3000
people found one in three
Australians had no one to talk
to if they felt alone.
Loneliness is not a trivial
problem, says Lifeline WA chief
executive Lorna MacGregor.
Many people assume that
calls to the crisis support
helpline are due to people
feeling depressed, suicidal or
both, but this is only true to an
extent.
Crisis support workers say
that loneliness, not a mental
health issue, was the reason for
most calls.
In fact, Ms MacGregor says
more than half of calls to
Lifeline are due to loneliness.
“Definitely, we deal more
with loneliness as a crisis than
we do with mental health as a
crisis,” she says.
Risk factors
Risk factors for loneliness and
social isolation worldwide
include socio-economic
adversity, living alone, losing a
loved one or close friend, some
mental health conditions and
poor physical health such as
frailty or mobility issues.
And, studies show some
groups are much more likely to
be lonely.
Obviously prone are the
elderly, which is why the focus
has been on this group when
coming up with solutions to
address the issue.
More recent research,
however, shows it actually cuts
across all the social barriers of
age, race, socio-economics,
education and gender.
For instance, you might not
think a high-achieving,
professional woman is
vulnerable to loneliness, but
she is.
For starters, studies show
well-educated, financially
independent women are more
likely to be on their own — and
living alone is one of the risk
factors for loneliness.
Naturally, points out Ms
MacGregor, lots of people —
men and women — enjoy their
own company. Occasional bouts
of loneliness can even be
productive.

grew up in a really loving
family and had quite a normal
childhood with no massive
issues until I was in late
primary school, which is when
I developed an eating disorder.
In Year 10, I was hospitalised
because my parents were so
worried about me and I was
diagnosed with anorexia nervosa.
For the next two years straight, I
was in and out of hospital.
It was a cycle because as soon as
I was released, I’d lose weight so
they’d put me back there and (I’d
be) forced to put on weight again
through tube-feedings and stuff.
I felt very isolated and alone at
that point. I just didn’t feel like I
wanted to be around anyone. I
chose to cut off from people. That
was my first experience of
loneliness.
Things got worse, though. My
parents were so worried that they
arranged for me to be admitted to
Hollywood Hospital and I lived
there continuously for seven
months. This actually helped me
beyond words with my eating
disorder but when I got out, I had
missed so much school that I left
Rossmoyne Senior High School in
Year 10 and started working.
I also felt I had missed out on so
much from being in hospital, I
think it’s why I gravitated towards
people who were really
experimental and wanted to have
fun.
That’s when I was introduced to
drugs and alcohol. Partying
became the priority and I got into
the rave scene and moved out of
home with a couple of girlfriends
and we just lived in this party
house.
In fact, that was anything but a
lonely time for me. I was actually
quite happy because I was making
a lot of friends and meeting new
people. The downside was my
relationships with my parents was
really starting to suffer as a result.
Then, after a couple of years,
things really unravelled. I started
having panic attacks, anxiety and
depression because of the drug
taking. I ended up quite unwell and
developed a social phobia. From
the ages of 18 to 23, I was still
having issues, even though I had
completely stopped taking the
drugs. It was a very hard time. I
had people around me —
boyfriends, friends and family —
but I still felt quite lonely.
I guess I felt no one understood
what I was going through. Then I
became even more isolated. I
started to feel like there was
something wrong with me but I
could not put my finger on what it
was.
I then felt disconnected from the
world and from myself. The
problem was, these feelings were
difficult to articulate so I couldn’t
talk to anyone about it. I just tried
to get through life as best as I
could.
I went back to study and work
and tried to make a life for myself
but I just felt really lonely. It sounds
odd because I had friends and a
boyfriend and even had a really
good 21st birthday party.
The loneliness came from not
feeling like I had meaningful
relationships with anyone. There
was a lot going on deep down for
me that no one else could see. Just
before I turned 25, I thought things
were finally going quite well
because I had a really great
boyfriend and I was travelling and
lots of good things were
happening. However, I had a
psychotic episode.
I was experiencing some really
fixed delusions and was totally out
of it for about a year. That was
such a lonely, lonely time. I had
come off all my prescription
medications so I didn’t know why it
was occurring.
I completely shut down and I
disconnected myself from
everyone in my life, including my
family. I didn’t do anything for a
year except for watching DVDs in
my bedroom.
I felt like I was going to hell and I
had all these warped beliefs. I’d
never felt worse in my entire life.
I was totally terrified, 24/7, for a
year. I felt totally alone and so
isolated because I could not
articulate to anyone what I was
experiencing. It caused my parents
so much distress because they
didn’t know what was going on.
This was the all time-low.
I didn’t know it at the time but I
was eventually diagnosed with
schizoaffective disorder, which is
schizophrenia with a mood
disorder. I was admitted to Perth
Clinic, where I was diagnosed, and
they put me on medication. I’ve
been fine ever since.
That happened when I was 26
and now I am 34.
I’m engaged to be married,
Stay in touch it’s good for you
R
esearch has linked loneliness to
an increased risk of coronary
heart disease and stroke, high
blood pressure and some
disabilities, according to
Relationships Australia WA senior manager
Fiona Bennett.
“One study shows it can increase the
likelihood of mortality by 26 per cent,” she
said. “And that is huge.
“The mental health impact of that feeling
of when you are on your own, which
includes not feeling good about yourself
and feeling not worthy of being with people
and feeling like people won’t want to be
with you then can turn into physical habits

I overcame loneliness
Ways to reach out
How to be a good friend
ᔡ Keep interested, don’t think you
know everything about them
ᔡ Little bits of contact is OK
sometimes, you don’t need the ‘big
night out’ every time you catch up
ᔡ Don’t worry if you haven’t seen each
other in a while. Be the one to make the
call
ᔡ Make time to just “be” together
ᔡ Be honest, including owning up when
you’ve stuffed up
ᔡ Think about what you can do for your
friend — not just what they can do for
you
ᔡ Be respectful of differences, they can
make life interesting!
ᔡ Balance what you want to do with
what your friend wants
ᔡ Be kind
ᔡ Listen carefully
ᔡ Tell your friend how special they are
to you. Tell them what you enjoy or
appreciate about them
ᔡ Have fun together
ᔡ Cry together
ᔡ Friendships change over time. Talk
about those changes so you are both
OK with them

which are unhealthy. So you might not
sleep as well, you might need a boost of
energy, so you eat the high-sugar foods,
which can lead to obesity. It can lead to lack
of exercise and it can lead to increases in
alcohol consumption for some people and
the health difficulties associated with that.”
Ms Bennett said strong relationships
were one of the keys to a happy life.
“It’s now that we are noticing it coming
through the health system. This is due to it
being a chain of events. Loneliness has a
cumulative effect.”
Worryingly, many lonely people even
today remain unaware of the health risks
they face.

working and also doing lived
experience public speaking for the
WA Association for Mental Health.
I want to use my experiences to
help other people.
I went from feeling like I have
literally nothing going for me —
and feeling totally socially isolated
— to managing to come through it
and making connections with
people and that might help other
people.
The reason is, I really pushed
my boundaries. After my
diagnosis, even when I was stable
and well again, I felt lonely and
like life was very empty for a while
because it took time to build up
my life again.
I would cry a lot, too.
I’d see on Facebook that other
people had full lives by my age
and were having children when I
had nothing. I was rebuilding my
life from scratch. And, because I
had no confidence and was still
shaken up by my experience, I was
still scared even once I was well.
When an old friend made
contact and invited me to a party,
I was terrified because I hadn’t
been to a party in so long.
But I worked up the courage to
go and it went really well. That
one party led to me reconnecting
with some old friends and from
that point, I started to socialise
again.
I got a job back in retail and just
consistently pushed myself out of
my comfort zone. Basically, I faked
it until I made it.
Now I feel so much more
confident and like I have so much
going for me. Ever since then, life
has been really great.
‘A very strong
measure of
loneliness is
whether a person
has someone else
to talk to.’

1 to 9 in the empty squares.
The numbers in the black
squares are the clues, that
No. 3428
give the sum of the row or column it applies to. Thus a clue of 3
will produce solutions of 2 and 1 and a 5 will produce 4 and 1 or 3 and 2. But of course
which squares they go in will depend on the solution of a clue in the other direction.
No number can be repeated a row or column, so a 4 can only produce 1 and 3, never 2
and 2. TIP: start with smaller numbers.

range of passenger cars are on offer in 2019

T
hey may lag behind SUVs
in sales these days but the
traditional family car still
has a lot of admirers.
Those who enjoy enthusiastic
driving prefer passenger car
dynamics, city car buyers can
save money by opting for a
hatch rather than an
identically sized SUV, while
wagons offer more versatile
cargo spaces. We’ll look at the
SUVs and utes set to arrive next
edition but here’s a selection of
passenger cars coming our way
in 2019.
AUDI
The Audi A1 broke the mould
when it arrived a few years
back because suddenly there
was a light-sized premium
brand offering (nope, we’re not
counting Mini) and with a price

tag in the $20,000s, no less. The
second-generation arrives in
the first half of the year and
will be slightly longer and with
a bigger boot. Nothing official
has been said about price as yet
but it should start about the
same mark.
Audi will also bring an allnew A6 large sedan early in the
year to try to steal some sales
from the more popular BMW 5
Series and Mercedes-Benz
E-Class in the large premium
segment.
BMW
The 3 Series is BMW’s biggest
selling model but it’s slipped
down the pecking order
recently as SUVs take over
sales and the Mercedes-Benz
C-Class dominates the
premium medium car market.
It has an all-new version
arriving about March, which
looks like a scaled-down 5
Series.
The brand will also bring
back the 8 Series for the first
time since the 1990s, with the
M850i coupe and convertible
coming soon.
FORD
The Ford Fiesta has been a
mainstay on the Aussie car
scene for a long time but only
the ST hot hatch will make it to
Oz this year as Ford continues
to tinker with its line-up to find
sales from something other
than the Ranger. But we’re
looking forward to the ST, given
the current version is about as
much fun as you can have in a
$25K car.
It will also offer something a
little different, with the Focus
Active, a jacked-up version of
the brand’s small car in a
similar vein to Alltrack and
Allroad models found in larger
car line-ups from other
companies.
GENESIS
Hyundai’s Genesis luxury
sedan never set the sales world
alight in Australia and its debut
as a standalone brand has been
pushed back multiple times.
However, the
company
Mazda3
Ford Fiesta ST
says it will
finally
happen in
March. It
will debut
with the
medium- sized G70
sedan and the G80, the
Hyundai Genesis
sedan by another
name.

Almost guaranteed to sell the
most out of any of the cars on
this list, the fourth-generation
Mazda3 will arrive in Australia
midyear.
Again there will be a

available
Mercedes-AMG A 35
NISSAN
One of the first production
electric cars to hit the market,
the all-new Nissan Leaf will be
one of several battery-powered
vehicles in Australia when it
lands this year.
It will have an e-Pedal, which
allows drivers to operate the
car using only a single pedal to
accelerate and brake.
Nissan has struggled
to keep the price down
in the past and,
unfortunately, this
looks like having a
price tag in excess of
$50K.
Nissan Leaf
PEUGEOT
Peugeot has been repositioning
itself as a quasi-premium Euro
brand in Australia — and the
508 will play a major role in
whether or not the French
maker succeeds.
Large sedans are even less
popular than their medium
counterparts but premium
brands need a sedan flagship —
and the 508 looks the part with
a bold exterior design.
TESLA
Supposedly the model to bring
Tesla to the masses, there have
been many production hold-ups
with the brand’s mainstream
electric car but company chief
Elon Musk has said it will be
here in mid-2019.
TOYOTA SUPRA/BMW Z4
These co-developed sports cars
with iconic names have been in
the works for a while now and
should both hit our shores in
2019. We’ve had a chance to
drive pre-production versions
of both and felt each was
worthy of carrying the names.
VOLVO
Luxury brands are still
invested in sedans and Volvo’s
C-Class/3 Series/A4 rival is due
to arrive this year.
Volvo has been impressive
since dedicating itself to being
a luxury brand with the XC90 a
few years back, so the S60 will
likely be a quality offering.

bursting with practicality,
starting with the construction

polyethylene and roto

Some poly boats are welded
together from sheet material in
the same way plate aluminium
boats are, which is perfectly
valid and with modest start-up
costs for the builder.
Roto moulding on the other
hand is expensive to set up and
the builder needs

The MAC 600 Double
Console comes in at 610kg.
its own. It is happy to bend
without breaking (it is virtually
immune to fatigue), it is
slippery and quite difficult to
scratch and any scratches are
essentially invisible anyway
because the colour is full
thickness.
If an owner does manage to
put a hole in it, low
temperature welding can fix it.
Just about all moulded poly
boats are double skinned,
adding stiffness and flotation.
Many, including this one,
have the cavity foam filled.
Besides the obvious
reassurance this gives, it
practically removes hull noise
at any speed.
Some, like the smallest MAC
boats, resemble rigid inflatables
by losing some internal beam
and gaining stability.
The 600 has much more of a
conventional hull form but still
loses 400mm between the
overall and internal beam
measurements.
Despite the sheer quantity of
boat, at 610kg it is almost
certainly lighter than the
equivalent hull in aluminium.
The mouldings include neat
boarding arrangements aft.
Pairs of steps are moulded into
the transom either side of the
motor and grab handles are
provided alongside them.
The builders claim geared-up
scuba divers have tested this
and found boarding easy;
despite not trying it myself, I
believe them.
Deadrise is a very respectable
18 degrees, yet the hull form
has a creditable stability at
rest.
The MAC has an effective
T-top mounted on a stainlesssteel frame which also mounts
four rod sockets.
The windscreen is vast in
area, almost reaching the T-top
and wrapped around at the
sides.
This could be just the thing
for its home country but might
be a bit much in WA where the
preference seems to be to look
through the screen when sitting
and over it when standing.
Here, the sitting is done on a
usefully large locker box with
upholstered top. The foam-filled
double skin kills opportunities
for inserting such storage spots
as side pockets but the console
adds to the total with access via
a door, plus a glove box.
None of the seating is
sophisticated but a total of five
is accommodated with basic
seats right aft and at the
console’s front. Anchoring
arrangements are about as
simple as they come: a roller
fairlead, a cleat and a basic
anchor well — just like it used
to be for Australian boats until
bowsprits, lidded lockers and
the like made their appearance.
The motor fitted was a 100hp
Honda, a little under midway in
the recommended power range.
Unless big loads are likely
(people capacity is eight) a
bigger motor would be hard to
justify.
The response to the slightest
touch on the trim button
confirmed the adequacy of
horsepower at lighter loads.
The Spartan fit-out is
explained by the typical New
Zealand style of boating: beat
your way out through bar
breakers, catch fish and come
back.
Not a lot of distance involved,
nor anchoring usually but a
very tough, seaworthy boat
needed.
An esky takes care of lunch
on the way out and the catch on
the way back.
Everything else is a luxury.
There are more than a few
Australians with a similar
approach to their boating, and
the MAC 600 could satisfy them
at a Spartan price.
ᔡ Ray Cully
G
iven the number of cliches about the vast
expanse of the great Australian backyard
it should come as no surprise that a touring
holiday involves spending long hours behind the
wheel. At best, the road between points of interest
is quietly uneventful. It can also be fretful, tiring
and result in migraines, frayed tempers or, at
worst, an accident.
So, what can you do to ease those long hours in
the car?
Firstly, be realistic about the total number of
hours you and your passengers can tolerate at a
stretch. Plan to stop every couple of hours to
snack, stretch and walk round your vehicle and
camper to cast an eye at the tyres and ensure
everything is still tied down and the hitch is
correctly connected.
Try to switch drivers every couple of hours. Even
if the main driver doesn’t need a nap, a couple of
hours of not having to concentrate will refresh
them for another stint.
Get everyone’s buy-in on whether you push
through to the next major camping location or
break the journey with an overnight stopover.
This is particularly important if you’re travelling in
convoy because everyone will have different
expectations on what distance is acceptable to
travel in a single day.
When calculating travel times, remember that
though you might travel at 90+km/h on the black
top, even well-graded gravel will slow your pace.
On off-road tracks you might average 40 or 50
km/h. Truly tough terrain and you might walk just
as fast.
This is the time when electronic devices or travel
games can save everyone from a meltdown.
As well as personal devices loaded with music or
offline video material, your local library probably
has a supply of audio books and it can be a great
opportunity to share the latest bestseller or find
out why quidditch is so important to Harry.
Or arm yourself with some joke or trivia books to
dip into occasionally.
Head online or into your toy store for travel
games ranging from traditional favourites such as
Scrabble or chess through to all sorts of weird and
wonderful novelty ideas to help pass the time. Pass
the Pigs anyone?
When you’re behind the wheel be conscious of
other road users and never fail to be patient and
courteous. It’s natural to slow down as you tire; if
you realise you’re lagging and holding up traffic
don’t try to correct by speeding up just as someone
tries to overtake.
If you’re towing a heavy load or are more
comfortable at a slower speed on a rough or
unfamiliar road then help others pass by keeping
left, slowing down when the road is clear or pulling
over to let a queue of traffic jump past.
A UHF radio is handy to request passing
clearance of a slower moving vehicle ahead or to let
those following know that you’ve seen them and
will tell them when it’s safe to pass. This should
limit their tendency to tailgate or keep drifting right
to spot an overtaking opportunity.
Maintain a stable cabin temperature but be
prepared to put on a jacket or have a blanket handy
if you like it warmer than everyone else. Keep
everyone who isn’t driving off caffeine and sugar —
if they doze for an hour or three, they’ll be full of
energy to set up camp while the driver relaxes.

SCORCHERS SEEK
BATTING REVIVAL
• JOHN TOWNSEND
Perth Scorchers have the same
problem afflicting most levels of
State and national cricket in this
country.
They can’t find enough toporder runs to produce winning
totals but captain Ashton
Turner believes his underperforming batsmen are due to
end their drought when they
take on Sydney Thunder today.
“If you have a look at our top
order, it is almost the same as the
one that saw us finish on top of
the ladder last season,” Turner
said.
“We haven’t performed as we
would have liked so far but we
trust what we have done over
the past few years and we are not
far off.
“The challenge for us is not to
change too much but to get the
best out of the squad we have.
“We believe a change of fortune is just around the corner.”
Turner, who became the first
Scorcher to reach 50 matches
when his team lost to Hobart this
week, could not identify the
reasons for their batting decline
this summer.
Perth are averaging just 15.48
runs a wicket this season, well
under the competition average
of 21.87. Their four openers —
Michael Klinger, Sam Whiteman, Josh Inglis and Will Bosisto — have scored only 68 runs
between them in eight hits.
Only two of those innings have
reached double figures.
Turner suggested that an
unchanged team would be
employed at Spotless Stadium
tonight, but predicted that the
batting order would probably be
rejigged again in pursuit of their
best combination. Paceman
Jhye Richardson may require a
fitness test today after pulling up
sore from the Hurricanes game.
Perth are seventh with one
win and their poor run rate
means they may have to win
eight of their 14 matches to qualify for the finals.
“Our challenge is to start playing the sort of cricket we know
we can produce before it is too
late,” Turner said.

Melbourne Stars extended their
local derby domination last
night, cruising to a seven-wicket
win over the Renegades before
an MCG crowd that reflected the
BBL’s growing pains.
The Stars, chasing the Renegades’ 9-148, reeled in the target
with 13 balls to spare and losing
only three wickets. Opener Marcus Stoinis top-scored with 78no
from 49 balls, closing the match
with his fourth six and securing
the player-of-the-match award.
He also hit four fours in his
commanding knock.
Stoinis and Ben Dunk set up
the successful run chase with an
opening stand of 67 in eight
overs.
It took excellent wicket keeping from Sam Harper to dismiss
Dunk for 32, stumped off the
bowling of Cameron Boyce.
A direct hit from Mohammad
CTF, helping fund the skills
that build your future.
†
Nabi had Nick Larkin run out for
three and the Renegades looked
like they might have a sniff, with
the Stars 2-76.
The next ball, Stars captain
Glenn Maxwell walloped a six
off Dan Christian to show it was
a false dawn.
Maxwell belted 33 from 22
balls before he was also stumped
off Boyce’s bowling.
With openers Aaron Finch
and Marcus Harris on Test
duties, batting is the Renegades’
Achilles heel and they remain
without a half century after four
games. But stand-in openers
Harper and Mackenzie Harvey
gave them an excellent start,
reaching 52 in the fifth over after
being sent in to bat.
The marquee clash last night
attracted 46,418 fans, below the
expectation of 50,000-60,000.
It is well down on the 80,000
attendance for the same game on
January 2, three years ago. AAP

ANALYSIS

FINCH AN AVERAGE CHOICE
• JOHN TOWNSEND
Greg Shipperd knows a thing or
two about batting and he won’t
have a bar of Aaron Finch as an
opener.
Shipperd,
who
coached
Victoria to four Sheffield
Shields, a one-day title and four
Twenty20 titles, as well as developing 23 national players,
trialled Finch as an opener for a
month about five years ago.
The experiment was abandoned after Finch scraped
together 148 runs in eight
innings — at an average of 18.50
— with one score of 97 standing
Everest-like over his other
returns of 5, 12, 5, 4, 18, 7 and 0.
Finch is now averaging 16.16
against India this series with an
even 50 standing more like Mt
Eliza over his other scores of 0,
11, 25, 8 and 3.
If one of the sharpest batting
analysts in the country could not
be convinced that Finch’s leaky
technique would survive against
the new ball at shield level, what
chance has he got in Test cricket
against two of the most potent
quicks to visit this country in
many years?
Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant
Sharma will continue to attack
Finch’s front pad, set catchers
straight on the leg-side to
restrict his outlet options and
simply wait for the batsman’s
fatal opening to be exposed.
One of Justin Langer’s favourite sayings should apply to
Finch and his harrowing experience as a Test opener.
“If nothing changes, nothing
changes,” Langer often says to
justify a tough decision.
In Finch’s case, if nothing
changes for the fourth Test at the
SCG, starting tomorrow, the
No.3 batsman will be walking
out again as early as he did at the
Australian opener Aaron Finch is
caught by Indian captain Virat
Kohli for a measly three in the
second innings of the third Test
at the MCG. Picture: AP
MCG. But Australia have few
options.
They can retain Finch at the
top of the order, they can shuffle
him to the middle order, or they
can drop him and manufacture a
new opener.
The second is the most likely
option with Usman Khawaja or
Shaun Marsh, who have both
averaged high 20s in the top
order, moving up to open, while
the middle order would be
remade with Finch slotting in
between the two remaining lefthanders.
Dropping Finch is also an
option, particularly if Langer
and his fellow selectors have
finally come to the view that he
is not of Test class, but this is
complicated by the absence of
other options and the fact that
the team will be picked from a
14-man squad. Australia appear
to be channelling the England
selectors of the turn of this
century who would often name
large squads with question
marks over many of the inclusions. The same applies here.
Peter Handscomb remains in
the squad but was dropped after
two poor Tests, Marnus Labuschagne is ready to replace Mitch
Marsh as a No.6, picked because
he can bowl a bit, while the other
legitimate openers are either not
playing or just going in the Big
Bash League.
Marcus Harris batted his way
into the Test team as a prolific
shield opener but Matt Renshaw
(199 at 19.90) has not done himself any favours, and Joe Burns
(472 at 47.20) is well-credentialled but seemingly out of
favour.

The ability of India and New
Zealand to defy the modern
trends by winning away from
home is one of the stories of Test
cricket’s most eventful year this
century.
India have won Tests in South
Africa, England and Australia
this year for the first time in
their history.
They lost the first two series
but are poised to win in this
country for the first time as their
combination of top-order class,
extreme fast-bowling skill and
feisty self-belief combine in a
perfect storm of preparation
meeting opportunity.
Picking five quicks against
South Africa at Johannesburg
would not have been thinkable a
few years ago, but it underlined
how far India have advanced that
they were rewarded for using
such foreign tactics.
And while New Zealand have
NEW CHEVROLET CAMARO 2SS
often punched above their
weight, they have used the same
model as India to produce
extraordinary form at home and
away with just one loss all year
and a series win in the Middle
East in an achievement that has
proved beyond the means of most
visitors in the past decade.
Both teams have excelled by
having weathered veterans to
provide the bedrock of their
success, while the emergence of
brilliant young stars has enabled
them to play cricket marked by
NEW CHEVROLET SILVERADO
verve and spirit. It is little
wonder that both countries have
supplied the bulk — and six of
the top seven batting positions —
of the team picked by The West
Australian as the best of the
year.
Apart from Sri Lankan opener
Dimuth Karunaratne, who
picked himself on weight of
performances, three prolific
players from each country
formed the top order of our team.
Virat Kohli was a natural as
the leading run scorer in the
world this year, the game’s best
batsman and most compelling
figure in the game.
But his impact is barely more
significant than New Zealand
captain Kane Williamson, who is
as understated as the Indian is
flamboyant.
Williamson scored half as
many runs from half the Tests as
Kohli, but finished with a higher
average and a profound say in
New Zealand’s four wins. He will
captain this team.

lieutenants, with Cheteshwar
Pujara’s patience and
concentration paving the way for
Kohli to dominate, while Henry
Nicholls has proved a perfect
aggressive foil to Williamson’s
timeless endeavour.
The left-hander scored his
three centuries in wins to
underline his value.
Fellow Black Cap Tom Latham,
whose unbeaten 264 was the
highest score of the year, was the
most consistent member of a
group that included a couple of
grafting South Africans, flashy
West Indians and Prithvi Shaw,
who may well have been selected
if not for the untimely ankle
injury that forced him out of the
tour of Australia.
But Indian newcomer Rishabh
Pant did enough with gloves and
bat to be selected from a group of
middling candidates including
Tim Paine, England’s Jonny
Bairstow, Jos Buttler and Ben
Foakes, BJ Watling of New
Zealand and inflammatory
Protea Quinton de Kock.
The bowling attack featured
the keenest competition for
places, even though the eventual
selections proved relatively
simple.
The skill, pace and impact of
Kagiso Rabada and first-year
revelation Jasprit Bumrah made
them impossible to ignore as an
idiosyncratic but effective
new-ball pairing.
The explosive Rabada took 52
wickets this year, more than any
other bowler, while only greats
Curtly Ambrose and Terry
Alderman claimed more than the
stiff-armed Bumrah’s 48 in their
debut years.
Australians Pat Cummins,
the only player to approach
all-round status in this all-star
side, and the world’s best spinner
Nathan Lyon were preferred to
several highly-credible
alternatives in veterans James
Anderson and Ishant Sharma, as
well as minimalist match-winner
Mohammad Abbas and dynamic
spin duo Ravi Ashwin and Yasir
Shah.

Villani wills
injury fix
with Sixers
on horizon
Scorchers star Nicole Bolton
snared 2-26 from four overs in
last Sunday’s win over Sydney
Thunder at Lilac Hill.

WHY BIG GUNS ARE
FEELING COOKED
• CRAIG O'DONOGHUE
Perth Scorchers coach Lisa
Keightley has warned of soaring
fatigue among international
players as a result of their jampacked schedule.
Elyse Villani missed Sunday’s
win over Sydney Thunder with a
hamstring injury, after captain
and Australian star Meg Lanning was unavailable for games
earlier in the season because of a
back injury.
Keightley said her decision to
bat Nicole Bolton at No.5 on
Sunday had been in a bid to
reduce her workload.
Bolton ended up winning the
player of the match award after
saving the Scorchers with 50
from 41 balls, then snaring a valuable 2-26 from four overs.
But Keightley said Bolton’s
performance defied how she and
many other internationals were
feeling.
“All of the internationals are
really tired from going through
to the World Cup,” Keightley
said.
“Coming back and trying to
back up in this competition is
really tough on them.
“If you look at all of the internationals, at some stage they’re
probably not really doing what
we’re used to seeing them doing.
“I think we can’t underestimate that the World Cup is like
having their Olympics and then
coming back three days later
and doing their Commonwealth
Games.
“Not many athletes can
sustain the heights of that peak
for 10 weeks. It’s a big ask.”
Australia played 13 Twenty20s
and three one-day internationals across Australia, Malaysia
and the West Indies from
September 29 to November 24,
then returned home for the start
of the WBBL on December 1.
The Scorchers played 11
matches throughout December,
including four weekends where
they played on successive days.
Keightley said training loads
had been reduced to give the
players opportunities to refresh
their bodies, with the interna-
tional stars being treated as the
cream on the cake.
“It’s a huge ask for all of the
internationals that are here,”
Keightley said.
“Throughout every team
we’re seeing a few more injuries
to our elite players. Mentally
and physically, a lot of them are
cooked.
“We’ve definitely changed our
internationals’ workloads and
training loads. We’re trying to
get them away to have a break
when we can.
“For us, they’re really just topping up what they need to feel
like and they’re ready for game
day and try and be physically
fresh.”
The Scorchers have the luxury
of playing only one game this
weekend.
They host Sydney Sixers at
Lilac Hill on Sunday and then
finish the season with two games
against Adelaide Strikers in
Alice Springs the following
weekend.
Perth moved to a 6-5 win-loss
record after beating the Thun-

Bolton hits out in her knock of 50
against the Thunder.
der twice last weekend. It was
the first time they had won
successive matches this season.
Keightley said it was a significant moment.
“I’ve heard them saying ‘we
backed up’. It’d be great to get on
a bit of a roll to give us an opportunity to be in and around when
semis come around,” Keightley
said.
“We need to still win matches
and that’s what we’ll be working
towards.
“It’s nice playing here (at Lilac
Hill) and we know the conditions
at the ground and we don’t have
to travel.
“We’ve got a nice week before
we play.”
Perth Scorchers opener Elyse Villani
expects to learn the extent of her
hamstring injury at training today
when she tests it for the first time
since their win over Sydney Thunder
on Saturday.
Villani felt pain in her hamstring
while compiling an unbeaten 66 and
leading the Scorchers to a six-wicket
victory. The injury prevented her
from playing in the next day’s match
against Thunder.
Villani faces a series of tests
before she can be cleared to play
against Sydney Sixers at Lilac Hill on
Sunday.
“I’m not too sure at the moment.
I’ve got a low-grade strain so I’ll
have to see how I pull up each day,”
Villani said. “It’s a bit of a waiting
game. It’ll come down to whether I
can hit top speed at training.”
The Sixers — who boast
Australian stars Ellyse Perry, Alyssa
Healy and Ashleigh Gardner — are
on top of the ladder with an 8-2
record while Perth are fourth at 6-5.
Sydney won their clash earlier in the
season by six wickets.
The Scorchers must improve their
fielding after dropping 10 catches in
their past four games. The team
dropped three catches on Sunday
and Villani said the trend had
baffled everyone.
“It’s a question everyone is asking
themselves and it’s something the
coaches are definitely looking at,”
Villani said.
“But when you start focusing on
it too much it can become
contagious. I think we need to get
back to enjoy our fielding and
wanting the ball.
“Hopefully everyone can relax.
Nobody means to drop catches and
we catch a lot of balls at training so
it must be a mindset thing.
“We are aware that we’re not
taking the chances but we have
competent fielders who aren’t
taking the catches you’d expect
them to take.
“The worst thing we can do is
build it up to become something it
may not necessarily be.”

SILK SMOOTH IN RUN CHASE
Jordan Silk played a perfect innings
at Metricon Stadium yesterday to
help Sydney Sixers to victory.

• TRAVIS MEYN
The silky smooth Sydney Sixers
upstaged Chris Lynn’s best
knock of the summer as Brisbane Heat slumped to another
Big Bash League loss on the Gold
Coast yesterday.
Jordan Silk (46 from 25 balls)
saved the Sixers in a New Year’s
Day thriller at Metricon Stadium with a sensational display of
late-innings batting to guide
Sydney to a five-wicket win.
The Sixers chased down Brisbane’s 7-164 with three balls to
spare to leave the Heat without a
win after three matches.
Lynn entertained the 17,106strong crowd with a typically
exciting 84 from 55 balls.
The Sixers looked gone at 4-121
in the 17th over when skipper
Moises Henriques departed
after an excellent 57 from 37
balls.
But Silk batted beautifully in
the dying overs, picking Brisbane’s field apart with a textbook display of Twenty20
batting to keep Sydney in the
contest.
Heat spinner Mitch Swepson
(1-40) was tonked around the
park, along with Ben Cutting
(1-34), as Brisbane’s lukewarm
bowlers squandered what was
shaping to be their first win of
the season.
Earlier, Sixers debutant Justin Avendano was cruising on 30
from 23 balls before committing
a cardinal sin in his first BBL
game.
Avendano ran what seemed to
be an easy single but didn’t
ground his bat and was run out
by a direct hit from Cutting.
Lynn had gone 21 T20 innings
without a half-century, with his
last 50 coming for Kolkata in the
Indian Premier League.
He found himself out in the
middle in the third over at 1-34
and departed in the last over.
He was dropped twice, on 13
and 73, but batted perfectly for
the scenario, staying at the
crease with smart stroke play
before cranking it up.
Finishing with three fours and
five sixes, Lynn’s knock was
exactly the innings the Heat
skipper had been hoping for
since taking over the captaincy
and took him to second on the
BBL all-time runs list (1706)
behind Michael Klinger (1840).
Now he needs a win.
While the Heat produced their
best score of the summer, there
are still major problems with
their batting given it is supposed
to be their strength.
The Heat don’t have the bowlers to defend modest totals and
need their batsmen to deliver
every game, which they are yet
to do. Kiwi star Brendon McCullum was dropped to No.4 after
multiple failures opening and
managed eight from 12 balls. He
was replaced by Sam Heazlett,
who was lucky to be playing let
alone promoted up the order.
Heazlett, who played an ODI
for Australia in Auckland two
years ago, was out for two,
taking his tally in three innings
to four runs. Joe Burns was out
for four.
Coach Dan Vettori is unlikely
to drop Black Caps mate McCullum and he is being paid too
much not to play, but Heazlett is
facing the chop after his three
failures.
Heat opener Max Bryant has,
however, been a revelation. At
just 19, Bryant is living up to his
Baby Bash Brother nickname
with three impressive digs so
far. He blasted 34 from 18 balls
yesterday.
Canterbury fast bowler Kyle
Jamieson took 6-7 in New Zealand’s domestic Super Smash
competition yesterday to equal
the third-best bowling figures in
the history of Twenty20 cricket
and best by a Kiwi.
The 24-year-old right-armer’s
figures, off four overs, helped
defeat Auckland, who were all
out for 110 batting first at Eden
Park No.2.
Only Malaysia-born left-arm
spinner Arul Suppiah, who took
6-5 for Somerset in 2011, and
Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan,
who took 6-6 for the Barbados
Tridents in 2013, have had better
returns.
Jamieson equalled Sri Lankan
slinger Lasith Malinga (2012)
and his victims included
England import James Vince.
The previous best by a New
Zealander was Ish Sodhi’s 6-11
for Adelaide Strikers in the BBL.

MOODY WAS OUR MR FIX-IT
• JOHN TOWNSEND
The more things change, the
more they stay the same.
It was the eve of the final Test
against India in 1991-92.
A Marsh was under pressure
to hold his place in the team and
would soon be dropped, never to
play again.
The No.6 was also under
pressure and would be replaced,
while a flamboyant and chubby
blond leg-spinner would also be
dropped with figures of 1-228
from the first two Tests of a
career that had not yet hinted at
its eventual heights.
Tom Moody had played the
most recent of his four Tests two
years earlier but felt comfortable coming into the team for the
fifth Test at the WACA Ground
after Geoff Marsh, Mark Waugh
and Shane Warne were all
dumped.
“The door opened for me and I
simply saw it as an opportunity
to show that I could play at this
level,” Moody recalled.
“My Test career was quite
spasmodic and I was mostly a
replacement for an injured
player rather than having the
chance to enter a series as a firstchoice player.
“But I felt quite relaxed and
reasonably comfortable coming
into the team and didn’t have
any of the anxiety that I had
experienced when I first
played.”
Moody also benefited from a
schedule that saw him become a
regular member of the Australian one-day team preparing for
the World Cup at the end of that
summer, while he also had the
chances to play in several
Sheffield Shield matches that
coincided with the series against
India.
“Players outside the Test team
had the chance to perform and
keep pressure on the players in
the team,” he said.
“That is one thing that is
fundamentally different today.”
Little-known Victorian opener Wayne Phillips was one of the
players who used runs in the
shield competition to stake his
Australia’s Tom Moody
celebrates after dismissing
India’s Saurav Ganguly in
a one-day match in New
Delhi in 1998. Picture: AP
claim for Test selection, and he
was rewarded when the selectors dropped Marsh.
Captain Allan Border disagreed with the decision to drop
his deputy and remained in
Adelaide in protest while the
team travelled to Perth.
He eventually arrived and
took charge of a team that used
its fast-bowling power and top
order strength to dominate
the match and win the series 4-0.
Moody took little time to have
an impact, scoring a neat 50 in
the first innings as David Boon
notched a century, while he
came into his own in the second
dig with a rapid hundred alongside Dean Jones (150), who had
prepared for the match by
launching enormous bombs
from one net bowler into Gloucester Park.
†
“I was at ease with my game
and they were good batting
conditions,” Moody said.
“I remember catching Sachin
Tendulkar and then Mike Whitney (7-27) running through them
on the last day.”
Moody would remain in the
Test team for the next series, but
was surprised to be asked to
open in Sri Lanka later that year
in conditions so oppressive that
Whitney’s sweatband would
slide off his wrist after each
delivery.
Moody thought his international career was over but, after
a five-year absence, was recalled
to the one-day team and played a
key role in Australia winning
the 1999 World Cup. His teammates included Warne and
Waugh, while the coach was
Geoff Marsh.

Was a MDN winner in Red, expect improvement.
Last win was in this class, T/D is the query.
Struggling to find his feet, write your own ticket.
Ran a cheeky race here last week. Don't dismiss.
Beaten by big margins of late. Class drop helps.
Loves the T/D. Good chance to graduate.
Tends to find bother in races. Risky prospect.
Back to Country class but not racing well enough.

Always runs an honest race in RED. Each way.
Not racing well enough at present to trouble these.
Been costly to follow of late. Don't jump off now.
Is better than recent runs, can surprise at odds.
Never hangs around in this grade for too long.
Not won for a while and others have more appeal.
Draw is no help here, will pay to look elsewhere.
Failing to have an impact of late. Needs to lift.

First race start and trial runs were promising.
Beaten by big margins of late. Outclassed.
Has early pace, just needs to be strong to the line.
Has struggled in lower class races. Not likely.
Knows the podium well in these races. Exotic banker.
Slow beginner who may need it easier.
First race start, market will be the best guide.
Hasn't shown much to date. Prefer to watch.
Can give plenty of cheek if he gains a start.
Long time MDN who has had plenty of chances.

Finds this grade on her limit. Hard to recommend.
Draw suits and has the time on the board. Each way.
Won 3 of her last 7, looks the knockout chance.
Has turned his form around. Don't treat lightly.
Can carve out slick times if he is fully fit.
Racing well below his best, wait till form turns.
Won this race last week. Stays under notice.
Resuming but this looks too short for him.
