TweetFacebookNEWCASTLE is in danger of collecting a second footballing wooden spoon in the same year after the Knights slumped to their fourth successive defeat -and ninth loss in 10 games -at Hunter Stadium on Sunday.

The 30-28 defeat by Cronulla, after Newcastle twice led by 10 points, left the Knights in 15th position,equal last with Parramatta and Manly.

The Sea Eagles occupy the bottom rung of the ladder because of an inferior points differential.

Manly have won only four games to Newcastle’s five, and are level on points courtesy of an extra bye, but would appear capable of finishing the season more strongly than the Knights.

Newcastle already has one wooden spoon in its possession for 2015, after the Jets finished last in the recently finished A-League campaign.

The unthinkable prospect of the Knights emulating their round-ball counterparts now seems a realistic outcome.

Unbeaten competition leaders after four rounds, the Knights need a miracle to reach the finals.

With 10 games to play, including some tough away trips, they would need at least seven wins.

Sunday’s win lifted Cronulla, who were without skipper Paul Gallen, from 10th to ninth on the ladder.

Newcastle led 16-6 late in the first half but suffered a setback when they conceded a try seconds before the interval.

Bursting onto an inside ball from Luke Lewis, Sharks five-eighth Jack Bird scored, leaving a simple conversion for fullback Michael Gordon to reduce the deficit to 16-12.

The lead fluctuated during the first 40 minutes.

Newcastle skipper Kurt Gidley kicked two penalty goal in the opening seven minutes, before the Sharks equalised when winger Valentine Holmes got outside his opposite number, James McManus, to cross in the corner.

Cronulla nudged 6-4 ahead in the 21st minute when Knights prop Kade Snowden was penalised and placed on report for a high tackle on Sharks forward Matt Prior.

Seven minutes later, Newcastle regained the ascendancy when centre Dane Gagai burst clear and grubber kicked ahead for fullback Jake Mamo, who regathered to score.

They increased their advantage to 16-6 in the 34th minute when Gidley put Robbie Rochow into a yawning gap and Origin enforcer Beau Scott backed up to score.

A freakish piece of play by Mamo gave the Knights a boost five minutes into the second half.

Chasing his own kick, Mamo launched himself when the ball was in mid-air over the dead-ball line and flicked it back in-goal.

Five-eighth Carlos Tuimavave was on the spot to score between the posts. Gidley converted to make it 22-12.

Far from wilting, the visitors surged into the lead with three tries in seven minutes – by Lewis, Ben Barba and Bird – all converted by Gordon.

Adding to Newcastle’s concerns, back-rower Tariq Sims was placed on report for collecting Lewis with a swinging arm as he scored his try.

A 78th-minute try by Snowden, converted by Gidley, left the game in the balance at 30-28 and gave the Knights about 90 seconds to salvage a miraculous victory.

But the Sharks withstood one last barrage to secure the two points, their second win against Newcastle this year.

Hanwood FC outplay Leeton

Nanjing Night Net

Hanwood FC got the better of an in-form Leeton United side in the Billabong Cup, recording a 3-0 victory at Hanwood Oval on Saturday night.

Leeton came into the match fresh off their table-topping victory over Yoogali SC, but it was second-placed Hanwood FCthat got in front early thanks to a perfectly placed free kick by Daniel Johnson.

Some good one-two play from Hanwood’s Andrew Quarisa and Blake Potts led to Johnson bagging his second of the day.

Hanwood FC went into the break 2-0 up.

The home side wasn’tcontent to just sit back and defend in the second half andcontinued to take the game to Leeton.

Hanwood FC’sthird and final goal came from the boot of Jordan Beltrame, who put the result beyond doubt.

Hanwood FC co-coach Anthony Agresta said it was a strong effort by his side.

“It was a pretty good game overall,” he said.

“They had their moments,but no clear shots on goal.

“We did give the ball away too much in parts, though.”

Eagles tear apart struggling Doggies

HEAT OF BATTLE: Jesse Browne (Daylesford) and Chris McGuigan (Gordon) fight for the ball. Picture: Kate Healy.
Nanjing Night Net

GORDONreturned to a more conventional mode of winning on Saturday, putting in a four-quarterperformance to annihilate Daylesford by 168 points on its home patch.

It was the Bulldogs that drew first blood via Matt Bolton from directly in front and Pat Rowe kept the visitors in touch with a clever snap mid-way through the first term.

From then on, however, the Gordon juggernaut began to roll, piling on the next 17 majors before Rowe added his second deep in the third term.

For the Eagles, in a very even performance, Chris McGuigan booted six goals, Ash Munari and Steve Patterson set up countless attacks and Tye Murphy was imperious in the centre of the ground. Adam Toohey booted four goals from all points of the compass, while Matt Raworth and Luke Gunnell continued their good form.

The Doggies were best served by defenders Ben Cooper, Jason Mackley and the indomitable Jesse Brown,who harassed, tackled and smothered all the way to the very end.

‘It is looking very grim’: fears grow for William Tyrrell

Poignant date: Missing toddler William Tyrrell would be four on Friday. Photo: SuppliedThe father of murdered Queensland teenagerDaniel Morcombe​ fears William Tyrrell, who would be four on Friday, won’t be found alive.
Nanjing Night Net

Speaking ahead of the poignant date Bruce Morcombe,father of 13-year-old Daniel, who was abducted and murdered on the Sunshine Coast in 2003,said familymembers would be at different stages of acceptance of William’s fate and that special dates such as birthdays would be “incredibly upsetting”.

MrMorcombesaid some in the family would be still hoping William is alive, some might be thinking that, with every day passing, thatis less likely and some would believe that the search was now for William’s remains.

“This can cause some families to fracture,” he said

“Everyone is hopeful but logic suggests statistically, as the months go by,he is not coming home.We strongly want a good news story to come out of this. We have been there and genuinely hope he will be found alive. I am sure the police are working incredibly hard to find the answers but with no sightings and no physical evidence, it is looking very grim for sure. Miracles do happen. Let’s hope there’s one here.”

Mr Morcombesaid that, 12 days after Daniel,a twin,disappeared, he faced with his wife, Denise, tryingto celebrate [twin brother] Bradley’s birthday.

“There was one cake when there should have been two,” he said.

“There are all these milestones. You just don’t forget. The 100-days anniversary or the 12-month anniversary are incredibly tough. We tried to be positive and tried to reactivate the investigation by appealing to the public for more information.”

Mr Morcombewas speaking the day after lawyers for Brett Peter Cowan, who was found guilty of the abduction and murder of Daniel,lodged an application for leave to appeal against his conviction.

In a separate development on Friday, whitegoods repairmanBill Spedding, repeatedly questioned over the disappearance of William Tyrrell, and named as a person of interest,was granted bail on charges of historical child sex offences.

Mr Spedding, 63, was arrestedin April and charged with unrelated child abuse offences and at a previous hearing his lawyer, Robert Hoyles, told the courtroom his client would deny the charges “until his final breath”.

Mr Morcombe​ and his wife, who have set up the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, tirelessly visit schools to get across their message to youngsters torecognise danger, react by getting themselvesto a safe place and then reporting it.

He said that they had taken their message toHerons Creek Public School,just five kilometres from where Daniel disappearedfrom his grandmother’s home in September, 12 months previously.

He also said that the family, from his experience, would be likely to be receiving distracting information from psychics.

“Personally, we found it quite distressing, a fair amount of it was bizarre and offbeat. I don’t place any amount of faith in psychic information. On our taskforce, it was an incredible distraction. They would say there’s a shed or a water tank…we had dozens or hundreds of leads and logic suggests that William’s case is similar to Daniel’s,” Mr Morcombe said.

“You can’t ignore them just in case it is a disguised confession, someone trying to get it off their chest and that they really do know something.”

From hisexperience there would be mountains of information coming infrom the community including timelines of where people were at the time andvehicles of interest.

“An important role is capturing data from CCTV at local service stations andATMs,which may be incredibly useful when the noose is drawn more tightly around a person of interest;it can perhaps break an alibi,” Mr Morcombe said. “If they can prove a vehiclewas at a particular place, that sort of informationcan solve a case.”

In a message to the Tyrrell family, he added:”Remain positive, that’s all you can do. The police will be working hard; they want to solve it as well. They, I am sure, go to work not filling in the hours; they go to work to find the answers.”

NSW Police declined to comment on the progress of the investigation.

Free education resources for schools can be downloaded from the Daniel Morcombe Foundation website.

Daily horoscopes: Sunday, June 21

Read Alison Moroney’s daily horoscopes for Wednesday,June 21, 2015.ARIES: Until August 9 much of your energy will be directed towards domestic and family interests as well as property matters. There is a lot that can be physically achieved around the home during this time, especially on July 7-10, August 5-8. However, there will be times when conflict arises because you push yourself and others too hard.
Nanjing Night Net

TAURUS: Until August 9 you will be immersed in daily routines, communications and travelling. You should watch your temper, for it could cause you excessive trouble, either as a result of disagreements, car problems or physical injury that manifests as cuts to the hands and digits, or lung problems. Direct the energy towards positive planning, and action to minimise difficulties.

GEMINI: Between now and August 9 your earning capacity will increase, mainly because of extra effort on your part, but also aided by additional income from an irregular source. There is a propensity towards the acquirement of possessions that could see your bank balance deplete in direct proportion to the accumulation of goods.

CANCER: During the next six weeks, initiative is a key factor in determining success, earning recognition from employers and business associates. Excessive enthusiasm and aggression may put others off side, so direct your energies wisely. Children of Cancerian parents should also be successful under this cycle. Trends are activated on July 7-10, July 14-17, 24-27, August 5-8.

LEO: The coming six weeks may be a frustrating time, regarding legal issues, communication, academic matters and professional advice. Allow situations to develop at a natural pace. It may very well be that your timing or perception of a situation is poor, or you need time to reflect on matters and work through them yourself.

VIRGO: The active pursuit of your ambitions and increased social commitments will demand much of your time and energy until August 9. This is also a financially fortunate period for you, though your friends and associates may suffer in some way. Perhaps over-zealousness on your part may contribute to these aggravations.

LIBRA: Partnerships, career and personal relationships will be the focus of your drive for success in the next six weeks. Feelings run high so you must be tactful in handling any situation, especially on July 14-17, 24-27. It is integral to your success that you learn to work in with others during this time. Positive developments around income are indicated.

SCORPIO: There may be the need for long distance travel or professional advice in connection with work or a health matter between now and August 9. It is important that responsibilities are met if difficulties are to be avoided. Students of welfare and health subjects should do well during this period, with special emphasis on July 7-10, August 5-8.

SAGITTARIUS: Your financial situation is helped along by fortunate breaks in the next six weeks. Loans, taxation, insurance and superannuation matters are favourably emphasised on July 7-10, August 5-8. However, younger members of the family may cause some concern, and you will not find it an easy matter to resolve those problems.

CAPRICORN: Relationships may not be easy during the next six weeks, as others are generally more aggressive, especially people whom you consider to be friends. Family members could also be in a similar frame of mind, so you need to use all your talents to deal with these situations tactfully. Trends are active on July 7-10, July 14-17, 24-27, August 5-8

AQUARIUS: Between now and August 9, work related concerns and health issues will demand more of your energy. Associated friction could develop at work, impacting on your health. It is important to pace yourself and not allow stress to undermine your position, as you would be rendering yourself vulnerable to accidents, inflammations, cuts and abrasions.

PISCES: You will be spending more of your time and money on children, a loved one, recreational interest or sporting activities between now and August 9.There is a tendency to choose locations at a distance for vacations during this period. Speculative interest should generally return good results. Best days are July 7-10, August 5-8.

Commuters anxious

Changing times: Ballarat train commuters now have an extra daily peak service running to and from Ballarat. Picture: file photoMORE services aren’tnecessarily better for the daily Ballarat train commuter.
Nanjing Night Net

V/Line’sintroduction of an extrarun duringboth daily peak periods from Ballarat to Melbourne begins on Monday, but commuters still aren’t fully satisfied with the trip.

The change in timetables,taking into account the completedRegional Rail Link project, began on Sunday.

It is the week day trips that interest Ballarat’s residents themost.

Daily commuterJonathan Nolan, who previously took the 7.35am service from Ballarat Stationfor an 8.45am arrival at Southern Cross under the existing system, said the time change had been welcome for Ballarat residents starting their working day at 9am in Melbourne.

Mr Nolan said he now has an extra 10 minutes to get to workunder the new system with a service now leaving Ballarat at 7.24am,but is concerned about the continuing nature of overcrowded trains.

“The fact that there’s more servicesavailable is a good thing,” Mr Nolan said.

“Currently we’ve got overcrowding and quite often I’m giving up my seat.

“When the train arrives from Wendouree it’s quite sparse, but it’s close to full by Ballarat and it’s overcrowded from Ballan.

“From Bacchus Marsh and Ballan it’s definitely over capacity.”

Each service leaving Wendouree in the week daymorning stops at Ballan and Bacchus Marsh.

However, four extra peak-hourservices for BacchusMarsh will also clearsome of the congestionsuffered by passengerson the trip to Melbourne.

The next service leaving Ballarat Station in the morning departs at 7.46am for an 8.58am arrival at Southern Cross, proving nonviable for those with 9am work deadlines.

Mr Nolan said the primary focus should still be to lessen the travel time between Ballarat and Melbourne to one hour.

Options from Melbourne to Ballarat can lessen travel time to just 66 minutes, while tripsfrom Ballarat to Melbourne exceed 70 minutes.

“Some of the trains are running a very quick time to Ballarat,” Mr Nolan said.

“It’s reasonable to assume that same journey speed could be made in the morning.”

Driver faces two years in jail over Oberon forest crash

TRAGIC DEATH: Brielle Falzon, 15, died in a forest crash near Oberon in June last year.
Nanjing Night Net

A 25-YEAR-OLD man has been jailed for two years over the death of a 15-year-old girl in a forest crash near Oberon last year.

Adam Moore was behind the wheel of a Holden Rodeo during a late-night ride through Lowes Mount State Forest on June 6, 2014 when he navigated a sharp corner too fast, causing the ute to roll.

Albion Park girl Brielle Falzon was crushed and killed in the crash.

Moore, from Bellambi in Wollongong, will now spend at least two years in jail for the dangerous driving that caused the teen’s tragic death after he was sentenced in Sutherland District Court.

Speaking outside court on Friday, members of Brielle’s family choked back tears as they remembered their “cheeky monkey” – a vivacious young woman with an indomitable spirit.

Her aunty, Crystal Carriage, described her niece as “a beautiful person, inside and out”.

“She loved her friends and she loved her family, she would have been very proud of her friends at the moment.”

Also at the court on Friday was Brielle’s grandmother, Veronica Glover-Chambers, who the teen lived with for three years while attending school in Albion Park, and who she adored.

Mrs Portelli said Brielle’s heartbroken mother, Alexis Wilson, was unable to face the physical and emotional strain of the sentencing proceedings.

She said Brielle’s family was happy with the sentence and felt Judge Paul Conlon had been fair in handing Moore a four-year prison term with a two-year non-parole period.

Moore had drunk six beers on the evening of June 6, 2014, when he and four others decided to go driving through Lowes Mount State Forest during a long-weekend camping trip.

Brielle was sitting on the car’s front passenger window sill when Moore reached a 90-degree right-hand bend, travelling too fast to safely navigate the corner.

The car’s rear end drifted and the vehicle rolled once, killing the teenager.

Judge Conlon rejected Moore’s claim he was unaware Brielle and a back-seat passenger were seated on the car’s window sills.

In the moments after the accident, the court heard Moore said to a friend “get me a bullet so I can kill myself”.

However, the court heard the Bellambi man claimed the accident occurred when he tried to put the car into third gear but accidentally put it into first instead, however, the vehicle was found to be in fourth gear directly after the crash.

Both speed and alcohol were a factor in the crash and Judge Conlon said ultimately Moore was responsible for keeping his passengers safe.

Moore will be eligible for release from jail on June 18, 2017.

Police officer punched in the head 20 times in Surry Hills restaurant

A man who allegedly punched two police officers in Surry Hills on Sunday morning has been charged with assault.
Nanjing Night Net

Mii Metua Joseph Fortes, 27, was reportedly yelling obscenities at staff in a fast-food restaurant on Oxford Street when approached by the two plainclothes officers about 1.50am on Sunday.

The senior constables, both from Surry Hills Local Area Command, identified themselves as police officers before approaching him, a NSW Police spokeswoman said.

Mr Fortes then allegedly punched one of the officers on the head up to 20 times before forcing him to the ground. The officer sustained numerous cuts to his face.

Mr Fortes then allegedly turned his focus to the second police officer, running at him and allegedly punching him in the forehead. The officer was left with swelling and bruising to his face.

Neither officer was seriously injured and did not attend hospital.

The man was arrested after a number of other officers arrived at the scene.

He was taken to Surry Hills police station and charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer in execution of duty causing actual bodily harm and behaving in offensive manner.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in Parramatta Local Court on Sunday.
