Follow @batemansbaypostA LAST-MINUTE try from young halfback Joel Pietsch helped seal a dramatic 44-34 win for the Moruya Sharks over Cooma Stallions on Sunday.

The Stallions, who had recruited well in the off season, already showed their premiership credentials by making the pre-season final last weekend.

However, the Sharks managed to get their season off on the right foot despite what was a topsy-turvy affair in Cooma.

The Moruya boys began well, when in the fourth minute Aaron Brierley stabbed a perfectly placed cross-field kick into the hands of Craig Cottington, who crossed out wide for the first points of the game.

The Sharks were soon back on the attack when Dillon Johnston charged down a Cooma kick and raced 75 metres downfield.

From the ensuing play, Billy Halligan barged across for an 8-nil lead.

The Sharks then withstood some sustained pressure until winger Justin Austin made a break and kicked ahead for himself to create another opportunity.

From there, the ball once more went to Brierley who put in another deft kick to Cottington before he passed infield for Caine Brierley to score in the corner.

The Sharks were on a roll, but unforced errors at their own end gave the Stallions the opportunity to mount some sustained attack, and they scored a well-constructed try under the sticks.

Moruya hit back straight away when Shane Colebrook took a good charge from a tap kick, and with a quick play the ball, allowed Justin Bell to skip out of dummy-half for a characteristic individual try.

A 40-20 kick from Cooma once again saw them attacking the Sharks defence, and with five minutes left in the first half, the Stallions managed to post two relatively soft tries to be just 18-16 behind at the break.

The second half started as the first ended with poor handling errors and soft defence allowing the Stallions to hit the lead for the first time, 22-18.

Aaron Brierley took it upon himself to turn things around when he took on the defensive line and brushed off two defenders to cross wide out. Colebrook converted to give the lead back to the Sharks at 24-22.

The Sharks scored again in the 53rd minute when Tim Weyman created a break before Caine Brierley crossed next to the uprights to put the Sharks ahead by six.

Caine Brierley completed his hat-trick six minutes later to put the Sharks 10 points ahead with 18 minutes to play.

Peitsch then pulled off a brilliant 40-20 kick to put Moruya on the attack once more, and from the ensuing scrum, fullback Sam Howlett outpaced the defence to score under the sticks.

Peitsh’s conversion set up what looked like a match winning 38-22 lead with 15 minutes to go.

After a lapse in concentration, the Stallions scored a converted try to take the score to 38-28.

From the kick-off, Cooma rolled up-field and scored again to set up a nervy final four minutes.

However, with 60 seconds remaining Peitsch scooted from the scrum-base and outpaced the tiring defence to score under the posts.

St Brigid’s masterplan moves closer 

Crossley s St Brigid s Catholic church will be revamped.THE Friends of Brigid’s hopes stage one of its masterplan for the community asset will be completed by the end of the year.
Nanjing Night Net

Group secretary Teresa O’Brien said the masterplan included three stages and was expected to cost less than $200,000.

Ms O’Brien said the group would seek about $60,000 to implement stage one of the project, which would include a revamp of the Crossley church and the purchase of signage to be able to open Australia’s first Irish cultural and heritage centre.

Stage one also includes sourcing and preparing information, photos, and other resources about the local area’s Irish heritage and Australia’s Irish links.

“We want to tell the story of how the Irish came to south-west Victoria and went on to settle this area and build St Brigid’s,” Ms O’Brien said.

She said this included sourcing oral histories from people in the local area about the district’s Irish links.

The project has gained support from the community, state and federal governments and the Irish government.

Ms O’Brien said it was hoped the cultural centre would be open for several days each week.

It has been three-and-a-half years since the community took over St Brigid’s and already it has become a sought-after venue, with weekly Irish dancing classes held at the hall and a men’s shed group using the facilities.

Next year will mark 100 years since the church was built and the Friends of St Brigid’s hopes to host a celebration and book launch.

“Regina Lane has written a book about saving St Brigid’s and the history of St Brigid’s,” Ms O’Brien said.

Council to explain sea level policy

HAS the cost of your home insurance gone through the roof because sea levels are predicted to come through the floor?
Nanjing Night Net

Premier Barry O’Farrell and the NSW government last year dumped the former (Labor) government’s sea level planning requirements imposed on councils.

Wyong Council moved quickly to sever its policy ties to those sea level rise projections.

But Lake Macquarie City Council elected to keep its development policy, a move which residents argue led to massive premium rises.

Your opportunity to discover first hand the reasoning behind LMCC’s decision will be on Tuesday, May 7, at Bonnells Bay Youth and Community Centre (BBYCC).

That’s when council’s sustainability manager, Dr Alice Howe, will be guest speaker at the Bonnells Bay Progress Association meeting.

“Being sustainability manager of the fourth-largest council in NSW is somewhat of a challenge,” association president Col Roach said. “Dr Howe’s special activities are many and varied and include promoting sustainable transport across the city and the provision of recycling and green waste services (green bins) as well as reducing emissions from council’s vehicle fleet.

“She is a very knowledgeable person and everybody is welcome to attend,” he said.

“There is currently limited parking at BBYCC because of redevelopment works.

“Those attending the meeting should consider parking at the Bay Shopping Centre,” Mr Roach said.

The meeting starts at 7.30pm.

LETTERS: Prominent signs needed at Eraring 

I WANT to expand on my suggestion that Fisheries NSW erect sensible information signs at the Eraring Power Station outlet canal (“Eraring outlet disgusts as fishing filth is left behind” Lakes Mail April 18).
Nanjing Night Net

These signs should be put at places where they’ll be easily seen.

Their other main purpose is to convey their message in other languages, such as Chinese.

They should explain the fish bag and size limits, plus other vital information, and contain the line: “Please consider the environment and put rubbish in bins provided”.

A sign with this exact message has been erected at Stingaree Point, where the inlet canal starts.

I would also like to see Fisheries NSW complete, say, a six-month survey to gather information to determine what key messages need to be effectively shown on signs for the future.

Seagulls face up to Magpies

Steff LovellLEAGUE powerhouse Camperdown awaits Port Fairy’s A grade netballers this Saturday as the Seagulls look to bounce back from their first loss of the season.
Nanjing Night Net

Last Saturday Port Fairy had an unexpected loss when it went down to Warrnambool 24-23 in a thrilling game at the Reid Oval courts.

The loss has brought the Seagulls back to the field after they had flew out of the blocks with two wins in the first two rounds.

The Seagulls will have an important inclusion for their game against the Magpies with coach Emma O’Keeffe back in the team.

O’Keeffe missed last week’s game against her former club Warrnambool through work commitments and her absence hurt badly as it took away a lot of experience in defence for the Seagulls.

She will be needed this week against the Magpies who have the league’s best goal shooter, Narelle Welsh, as their spearhead.

O’Keeffe said she was looking forward to the challenge of taking on the Magpies.

“They are a good team. They are very physical and that is what we will concentrate on working at training tomorrow night,” O’Keeffe said.

“We know they are very strong in goals so we need to try and break them down in the mid court to cut off that supply.”

O’Keeffe said the loss to Warrnambool was another step in the development of her team.

She said the Seagulls were one of the most skilful and fittest teams in the competition and one of her biggest challenges as coach was to build a mentality in the team that they were capable of matching it with the best.

The Seagulls have some strong depth at the club this season with the A1 team having a 18-16 win over Warrnambool, their second win of the season.

The Seagulls had a good spread of goal shooters with Amy King (7), Grace White (6) and Annie Forrest (5) all getting on the scoreboard. The A2 team is undefeated and on top of the ladder after three rounds thanks to a 42-7 win over Warrnambool.

Steff Lovell and Gina Canfield were lethal in front of goals as they both shot 21 to steer their team to victory.

One of the highlights of last weekend for the junior teams was an 18-16 win to the Seagulls under 15 team last Saturday over the Blues. Josephine Barker was the star in the team’s second win for the season. In the under 17s, the Blues won 36-17 with Katherine Barker the Seagull’s best player. In the under 13s it was a 26-10 win to Warrnambool with Eloise Swarbrick the best for Port Fairy.

Last Sunday the under 16 team defeated Warrnambool 20-19 in a heart stopper with Whitney McNamara the best on court. In the under 14s, the Blues won 48-8, with Lucy Sinnott the Seagull’s best.

Seagulls lose Rudolph to injury

PORT Fairy will go into its home game against Camperdown this Saturday without the considerable skills of its playing coach Sam Rudolph.
Nanjing Night Net

The Seagulls’ 57-point loss to Warrnambool last week proved to be costly on the injury front as well with Rudolph dislocating his shoulder.

Rudolph said it was the first time he had a dislocated shoulder and he said he was able to work it back into place not long after it popped out.

“I got it checked by the doctor on Monday and there is some muscle damage but nothing too major,” Rudolph said.

“I just have to get those muscles strengthened up a bit and I should only miss a couple of games.”

While Jeremy Sheehan will also miss a number of weeks after tearing a hamstring, star ruckman Sandy Robinson will be available to play against the Magpies.

Robinson copped a knock on the ribs but has come up well. Rudolph said Sam McCartney was likely to return from a knee injury and Jason Leddin would also come back into the team.
