  • Three of the very best: Orange Tigers hunt history-making premiership

    thumbnail

    HUNTING: Dale Hunter, Tim Barry, Mick Rothnie and Simon Ewin are gunning for three consecutive grand final victories.AUSTRALIAN RULES
    Nanjing Night Net

    SINCE the club’s, and Central West AFL’s, inception in 1982, the Orange Tigers have never won three straight top grade titles.

    The Tigers have won two in a row thrice – 1991 and 1992, 1998 and 1999, and the current streak – but, arguably, 2015 is the black and golds’ best chance to claim a hat-trick, thanks largely to the current crop of players’ experience.

    Five of the current Tigers will be playing in their third straight grand final while another six will be playing in their second consecutive decider.

    Incredibly, three more have grand final experience prior to Saturday having played in 2013, while just 10 of the 24-man squad will play their first grade final with the Tigers.

    Talk about big-game veterans.

    Skipper Tim Barry, vice-captain Michael Rothnie, Dale Hunter, Simon Kay and Josh Bubnich are gunning for three straight, which would also signal three consecutive grand final wins over perennial heavyweights Bathurst.

    “It’s pretty important to us, we’re trying to make some club history,” Hunter said.

    “It does give us more motivation, especially being against the Bushrangers, we’ve played them in the last two as well so there’s good rivalry there,” Rothnie added.

    “I think Bushrangers have been in the last 10 grand finals … we pride ourselves on our grand final performances, and playing well when it counts,” Hunter said.

    “When I came here I hadn’t won one, so to come here and potentially win three straight is big, it’s huge for the club,” Barry said.

    “But for me, it’s more about the old boys in the club. They’ve seen the development in the club, and the hope come through, and seen us go from also-rans to title winners.

    “They’ve seen that improvement, and if everyone sticks with it I don’t see why the Tigers can’t keep winning them.”

    Simon Ewin is one of the six looking for his second straight title – he was an emergency in 2013 – and he said the experience in the squad, particularly the aforementioned quintet, puts the Tigers in good stead on Saturday.

    “Having their experience in the side helps us a lot,” Ewin explained.

    “It helps me a lot personally too. It’d mean a lot to everyone to get a third straight title.”

    The top grade game starts at 2.30pm, following the under 18, reserve grade and women’s deciders at Orange’s Country Club Oval this Saturday.

  • Pat’s lining up again

    thumbnail

    CLUB stalwart Pat Ling played his ninth grand final with the Singleton Greyhounds last Sunday and, chances are, it won’t be his last.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The 43-year-old has admitted he isn’t hanging up the boots until he lines up alongside his son and the players he’s coached through the juniors.

    “That’s my goal; I’m just hoping the body holds up until 2017 when they enter grade,” he laughs.

    “I just got the idea that I wanted to run out with these guys on the field.”

    The veteran front-rower, sporting a new shiner for his grand final efforts, was ecstatic after Singleton’s 30-14 win over the Scone Thoroughbreds on Sunday, which reversed last year’s defeat to the same opponents.

    He saved his tryscoring best for this clash with his first “meat pie” of the season.

    “No grand finals are easy,” he said.

    “Scone is definitely the toughest side in this competition.

    “I think most of the guys up there are working on the land and not sitting down all the time, they’re physically ready.”

    Ling said the reserves in Singleton have enjoyed success because they’ve got a lot of depth to rely on, as well as a good mix of experience and youth.

    “The old blokes are normally in the forwards, mostly because they can’t run, and the younger guys are out in the backs,” he laughs.

    Ling’s career with Singleton started in 2002 and he’s played more than 100 games of first grade and was a part of the senior grand finals of 2005, 2006 and 2007.

    He joined the “seconds” in 2008.

    “While the reserves have had 11 years of grand final appearances, first grade has had a lot of success in that time as well,” he said.

    Before Singleton, Ling played 126 games for his home town Narromine and also had four seasons with Lakes United in Newcastle.

    All those years of league may not have happened if wasn’t for a couple of his mates convincing him to play for the small town of Nyngan when he was 16.

    “I came into the game late, it was a small town and they convinced me to join, initially, to make up the numbers,” he told The Argus.

    Looking to next season, Ling believes if 10 guys from under-18s enter grade they’ll be looking stronger overall.

    “First grade was competitive on the field when they had their full side on the paddock,” he said.

    “They’re a younger team and will only get better.”

    WAR HORSE: Singleton Greyhounds club stalwart Pat Ling isn’t keen to hang up the boots just yet.

  • WILLIAM TYRRELL INVESTIGATION: Bill Spedding releases video denying any involvementVideo

    thumbnail

    Person of interest: Bill Spedding. Photo: Edwina PicklesA person of interest in the case ofmissing toddler William Tyrrell has released a recorded video statement denying any involvement in the boy’s disappearance from the NSW Mid North Coast.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Washing machine repairman William Spedding posted the video online following renewed public interest in the case with Saturday being 12 months since William, 3, vanished from his grandmother’s backyard in Kendall.

    “My wife Margaret and I offer the Tyrrell family our sincere commiserations in the tragic eventof William’s disappearance,” Mr Spedding says in the video.

    “I wish to state that I have had no involvement whatsoever in the disappearance of William Tyrrell.”

    Mr Spedding’sBonny Hills home was searched in January as was his pawnbroker business and adjoining office in the main street of Laurieton.

    A mattress and computer were carried away by detectives, in full view of curious locals, for examination.

    A property in his former hometown of Wellington, in NSW’s Central West, was also searched.

    However, he has strenuously denied any involvement in William’s disappearance. Police have said the searches of Mr Spedding’s propertieswerejust one of a number of lines of inquiry into William’s disappearance.

    Mr Spedding said he recorded the video to correct “inaccurate” reports that he was supposed to have beenat William’s grandmother’s house on the day the toddler went missing.

    He said he first attended the house on Tuesday, September 9, and then returned on September 18 but had not been in the house, or even the same street on September 12, the day William disappeared.

    “I have not been in the Tyrrell house or to the Tyrrell house, or to the street, before, between or after these dates,” he said.

    “The media have reported that I was supposed to attendthe Tyrrell house on the 12th of September 2014, this being the day of William’s disappearance.

    “I wish to make it perfectly clear that this claim is completely false.

    “I did not make any indication, of any nature, which would lead to any person to believe that I was attend [sic] the Tyrrell house on the 12th of September 2014.”

  • Days of extreme heat in Australia now 12 times more likely than extreme cold: study

    thumbnail

    Record hot days are now 12 times more likely in Australiathan days of record-breaking cold, and the ratio is increasing as rising greenhouse gases trap ever more heat on the planet, according to new research.

    During the first 50 years of reliable national temperature records covering 1910-1960, days of extreme heat occurred as often as days of extreme cold.

    However, this ratio rose to two-to-one between 1960 and 1980 in Australiaand increased toabout seven-to-one for 1980-2000 before stepping up further to 12-to-one for the 2000-2014 period, Sophie Lewis and Andrew King of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science,wrote in a paper published inGeophysical Research Letters.

    “The increase in hot records is likely to be related to the warming from greenhouse gases,” Dr Lewis, a research fellow at the Australian National University, said.

    Given the level ofgases such as carbon dioxide and methane are going to rise further, “in the future,it’s likely we’ll see an increase in [the hot-cold record] ratio”, she said.

    The ratio of temperature extremes was more marked during the cooler seasons, with afaster drop of record cold days than at other times of the year.

    Night-time warm temperature records were also being broken more frequently than daytime ones, the researchers found.
