Judiciary for Rose

Judiciary for Rose

NOT ALL GOOD: Oberon Tigers fullback Blake Miller scored the first try in Oberon's win against the Cowra Magpies on Sunday. But the game was soured for Oberon when George and Matt Rose were placed on report.THE OberonTigers are facing the prospect of once more playing without marquee signing George Rose as they continue their bid for the Group 10 premier league minor premiership.

The prop was put on report for an incident which occurred in the Tigers’ 28-26 win over Cowra.His brother Matt will also head to the judiciary after being placed on report for a separate infringement.

Oberon coach Zac Rowlandson feels penalising the Tigers during the match was sufficient.

“Matt and George are both on report again.I don’t think the incidents were really anything major,” he said.

“Matt landed on a Cowra player while making a tackle andGeorge got put on report for pushing someone in the chest.”

Rowlandson hopes the latest incidents will not see the Rosesmiss more game time for the Tigers.

“It wasn’t just what happened to Matt and George, there were so many penalties,” he said.

Oberon began the match well as they opened the scoring via a try to fullback Blake Miller, but Cowra then piled on 16 unanswered points.

In the end, both teams crossed for five tries. Trent Rose booted four conversions, while Caley Mok was only able to kick three for the Magpies.

The Tigers will play Bathurst Panthers in Bathurstthis Saturday, with ladies’tag kicking off at 10.30am and premier league at 2pm.

Ifyou everwanted to find out what your body’sabsolutelimit is, then Beach to Brother is the event which could tick all the right boxes.

The main event involves a42-kilometre marathon run fromTown Beach whichfollows the coast down to Laurieton, but the final step is a killer.

Runners will be required torun up North Brother Mountain, but the view at the top is breathtakingand worth the hard work required.

Organiser Mick Maher said the event wasn’t thefirst of its kind nationally, but it is for theregion.

“Competitors willencounter beaches, coastal paths, more beaches,dramatic headland tracks, coffee rock, bush-trails, break wall paths that are flat, undulating, ordownright vertical,” he said.

“The coffee rock section of the beach as youapproach Lake Cathie is a killer if the tide is a little high …the higher the tide the more time youspend on the rock platform.”​

If the full marathon and then running up a mountain isn’t quite for you, there are two other options on the day.

“Having the option to conquer such a challenging hill at the end of a marathon, ora half-marathon, or a 10km run, is what raises the bar. It’s about bragging rights I suppose,” Maher said.

More than 100 registrations have been received in two weeks, with more than 80 per cent coming from areas well outside Port Macquarie.

“I’d say the biggest benefit isgetting our community out and about andshowing them places they might not have known aboutbefore,” he said.

“Areas such as the whole Grant’s Head area of stunning headlands and trails that run fromBonny Hills through to Camden Haven are amazing.

“Many locals, even runners, still haven’t ventured up theNorth Brother trail and it’s good to havean event they don’t have to drive seven hours to compete in.”

Early bird entries are still available for those who want tograb a bargain.

The marathon costs $110, the team-relay marathon costs $160, the halfmarathon $75, and the 10-kilometrecosts $45.

Waratah school up for sale

Waratah school up for sale

Under the hammer: The old Waratah Primary School building will be up for grabs when an auction is held on Friday, July 15. Picture: SuppliedThe oldWaratah Primary School could soon have a new owner, with the property due to go under the hammer next week.
Nanjing Night Net

The building has been vacant since the school was closed in 2009, but will be up for auction through Roberts Real Estate in Burnieon Friday, July 15.

Property consultant Tim Barrett believes a buyer could use the site for tourism purposes.

“I think it could be a bit of a drop off spot, where people could stopand have a rest while they’re in the area,” Mr Barrett said.

“It could be traveller’s accommodation, with places like Cradle Mountain and the Tarkine Wilderness nearby.

“I think it’s going to have to be on the tourism side of things.”

Mr Barrett noted other old primary school’s in the Burnie area, including Brooklyn and Upper Burnie had beensold and used for accommodation, so the same outcome was possible for Waratah.

Roberts Real Estate recently tested the market at Waratah when the historic Bischoff Hotel went up for sale in May, but were unable to find a buyer.

Mr Barrett said he had had a number of enquiries about the property, but it would not be known until the day of the auction how many people might turn up.

He was not able to say what sort of price the school might attract as the reserve price won’t be released until next Friday.

The auction will be held on site at 29 Ritchie Street, Waratah on Friday July 15 at 11.30am.

Chilly conditions for kids soccer

Chilly conditions for kids soccer

CHAMPS: Young local Robe lads Mason Keane, Ben Carroll, Raj Legoe and Jimmy Murch were selected to represent the Mid South East Region in Adelaide from June 20-25.Enthusiasm and opportunity abounded as the Mid South-East was proudly represented in the SAPSASA soccer competition held in Adelaide recently. A Mid South-East boys team was joined by a combined Mid South-East / Lower South-East girls team that was able to come together just two weeks before the competition. The week consisted of 10 games for each team in a round-robin competition format.
Nanjing Night Net

The boys’ team consisted of 14 representing Penola Primary, Mary MacKillop Memorial School, Robe Primary and Beachport Primary.

The team was made up of students who played their first ever game on the opening Monday. It was a steep learning curve to prepare the students for the coming week, learning the intricacies of game play, as well as the rules and tactics unique to soccer.

The week presented weather conditions that had even the most hardened South-Easterner chilled to their bones. High winds and driving rain characterised the opening day and the weather conditions barely improved for the week. However, this did not dampen the spirits of the players. Every player committed to learning and putting their best efforts forward for the team.

The team grew enormously in confidence and skill as the week progressed. The passing game, knowledge of positions and tactical awareness was evident in both teams. Their dogged determination in defence and team play when attacking was indicative of the character of all players representing the South-East. By the end of the week the boys came away with many games that could have gone either way.

Coach Julian Rebellato was thrilled with the way that the teams played together and individuals developed throughout the week, emphasising that the real success came in the ways that the students bonded, played for each other and were able to experience and learn a game that is shared by millions of people globally. The support from parents and exemplary behaviour from the team made it a memorable SAPSASA carnival.

The 33-year-old’s photograph titledOur Next Generationis one of 20 shortlisted forthe 2016 MAX National Indigenous Art Competition.

Mr Trindorfer said he found his subject through work as a mentor of indigenous youth in Wollongong.

“I had the chance to step in to a multimedia role with the company I work for and started doing a bit of photography,” he said.

“This kid stood out to me, so I asked to take his photo. To me he represented the next generation of Indigenous Australians, wide-eyed and determined.”

Despite Mr Trindorfer being told “university isn’t for people like us”, he defied his family’s expectations and graduated with a Bachelor of Education.

Now he wants to use his work with the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience to encourage young people to chase opportunity and overcome low expectations.

“If it wasn’t for a couple of special people in my youth things would have been completely different today,” he said.

Winners of the 2016 MAX Employment National Indigenous Art Competition will be announced at NSW Parliament House on July 7.
