The entry way flows into a front foyer followed by an elegant lounge complete with open fireplace and timber windows – perfect for that warming glass of winter red with friends or family.

The neutral colour palette and cedar touches make it versatile for any decor, while the heart of the home lies within the open-plan kitchen – Caesarstone benchtops and an innovative design making appliances so discrete it almost seems as though it isn’t a kitchen at all. The island bench offers plenty of preparation space, while a custom-designed wall of sleek cabinets conceals an integrated Liebherr fridge-freezer providing generous food storage.

The spacious dining room adjoins the kitchen, and flows to the lounge area, making it ideal for entertaining.

Large bifold doors see the spacious family room open on to the terrace and sparkling pool. The enclosed pavilion can also be accessed from the terrace or family room, with the roof and ceiling fan providing year-round comfort.

Selling agent Mario Sanfrancesco, of Peter Blackshaw Real Estate, says this four-bedroom, single-storey home is perfect for families who want a touch of resort-style living. “I love the large family room and entertaining area overlooking the in-ground pool and the very private rear garden surrounded by mature trees and lush hedges,” he says.

Number nine sits in a prized location, close to schools, sporting fields and shops as well as the parliamentary triangle, CBD and embassy belt.

“The overall response to this home has been encouraging, which is not a surprise given the lifestyle it offers and proximity to Canberra Grammar School,” Sanfrancesco says.

“This home has been loved by many families over its lifetime and is ready for another to enjoy the peaceful surrounds and resort lifestyle.”

We love: The innovative approach to the kitchen, which sees appliances tucked away and carefully integrated into the overall design of the room bringing discreet to a new level.

Derby Day over before it begins as Brisbane Roar end Western Sydney’s A-League season

Wednesday, 13 March, 2019

The Brisbane Roar have spoiled Sydney’s Derby Day. On a night of endless intrigue and high drama at Suncorp Stadium, the Western Sydney Wanderers were sent packing from the A-League finals after a penalty shootout.

Jamie Young would be the hero for the home side, coming on in the first half of extra time to replace first-choice keeper Michael Theo, who injured his leg in a collision with Terry Antonis and will miss the remaining finals matches.

When the time came, he stood tall. With the penalty tally at 6-5 in favour of Brisbane, Jumpei Kusukami floated his shot high and right. Young was all over it and hence, the Wanderers’ season was all over.

Scores were locked at 1-1 after fulltime and extra time. The Wanderers could barely lift their feet as they clung to the draw in extra time with 10 men, following the red card to Jaushua Sotirio in the 103rd minute.

Brisbane weren’t clinical enough to finish it before it went to spot kicks but managed to hold their nerve, setting up a date next week against Melbourne Victory, scheduled for 5pm on Sunday. It also cruelled any hopes of a massive Sydney derby should the Wanderers have made it out alive.

“Heartbreaking. The red card didn’t help us. It was a very courageous effort when you put it into perspective. Boys were dropping in the last 10 minutes. It’s one of those things,” Brendon Santalab told Fox Sports after the game, while Young was in tears after his winning save.

“I’ve waited a long time for that,” he said. “I’ve waited the whole year. That was special.”

Wanderers coach Tony Popovic, who must now get his side up for a trip to Japan for Asian Champions League on Wednesday, said the send off of Sotirio was the turning point, leaving his team without an attacking weapon against tiring legs.

“It’s a shame Jaush got sent off because we could see his fresh legs and speed were hurting Brisbane. Just before he got sent off he created a great chance for Santa, Jamie Young came on and made a great save,” Popovic said.

“After he went off, you’ve got tired bodies and we lacked that spark once he was off the park.”

Brisbane are now undefeated in 10 home finals and if that was the last appearance for the great Thomas Broich on his home ground, it was one he would never forget. He played the entire match and ended it with knees covered in ice, praying his teammates could deliver.

The Roar’s imposing home record clearly hadn’t been weighing heavily on the minds of the visitors early on Friday night, who sprung from the blocks and dominated large swathes of the first half, finishing it with a deserving lead.

That one-goal advantage could easily have been more if not for Theo, who was called upon in the opening minutes to stop a pair of back-to-back shots from the Wanderers. First Santalab was denied, then Nicolas Martinez.

When Martinez dragged a shot wide – he probably should have scored – the Wanderers had enjoyed the first five shots of the match. It was a pattern that would last most of the half as the visitors poured on the pressure.

Brisbane had every reason to respond given the emotion of the night around Broich but spent far more time digging it out from their own box instead of sending raiding parties down the opposite end.

It looked as if Western Sydney’s dominance would go without reward before Avram Papadopoulos felled Santalab in the box on the stroke of halftime. Antonis made no mistake and the Wanderers were seemingly on their way.

Aloisi rushed onto the field to make his feelings clear as the officials left the ground and likely continued it in the rooms. Whatever he said, the Roar responded, levelling scores on 55 minutes after Jamie Maclaren pounced on Brandon Borello’s rebound off the post.

The Wanderers were starting to be broken up as Brisbane went on the offensive. Vedran Janjetovic saved Brett Holman’s strike before Borello was denied on the line by a desperate Scott Neville. Brown almost scored against just seconds later, with Janjetovic brilliant again.

Brisbane came perilously close to burying the winner as the clock ticked down. Broich put it on a platter for Borrello, whose volley managed to bounce on the crossbar – twice – before Janjetovic batted it away.

Sotirio has his chance to be the hero at the death but his shot from in front sailed well over the Roar goal, ensuring it went into extra time. It would be one of the most crucial moments of the night, with his cameo from the bench soon ending with a send off.

Bunnies edged out by Broncos in two hours of madness

Wednesday, 13 March, 2019

If you looked hard enough, a crazy game of rugby league broke out on Friday night. Just a small distraction to the year-round contract capers. It’s how rugby league works now.
Nanjing Night Net

The Broncos won, with a dubious 78th-minute field goal from Anthony Milford who appeared to fumble in the lead-up. It was two hours of rugby league madness on the field after months of madness off it. But were the Broncos really the winners?

Aren’t the winners only those who have a stat line good enough to show prospective new employers? Isn’t the 80 minutes of throwing pigskin around merely the shop window to bump up values and add zeroes to the next bottom line? On that score, let’s say Darius Boyd was the real winner. Maybe Milford. They were two of six Broncos off contract having another audition and both shone brightly again. Add another zero to their bottom lines in their next Brisbane deals.

But surely there was enough to talk about for silly season to subside for a day. Maybe. The Bunker copped a pasting from the Bunnies fans as many scrambled for the rugby league rulebook after a bizarre Korbin Sims try and equally baffling one to Tautau Moga. The Bunker boffins got it right. Possibly.

Milford – yes, he’s off contract too – went down from a Sam Burgess bruiser, hopped up to kick the ensuing penalty goal and then meandered off for a concussion check after Broncos medico Peter Hackney reviewed footage on the sideline, as he’s supposed to do.

Milford missed the last minute of the first half, passed his check at half-time and went straight back on, only for George Burgess to try to shoulder him back into oblivion shortly after and then watch as Brisbane’s No.6 won the game.

And what of Robbie Farah? He was shoved out of a Tigers contract before finding a new one at Souths and rode that many kilometres on the bike as an unused substitute in the first half he might have been angling for a Tour de France deal. Then he climbed off the pine to set up two second-half tries.

Enough to talk about. But chequebooks is where rugby league is at. So how much will Boyd be worth in his next deal? The match-winning Milford?

Bryson Goodwin won the Rabbitohs’ rugby league roulette wheel at ANZ Stadium on Friday night. He spiked a bomb into Robert Jennings’ grateful hands to get the hosts right back into it in the second half when 10 points down. Throw a bit more money at him.

Sam Burgess played strongly and was again the controversy magnet we have all come to know. Because he’s not off contract this year you might have missed he had to fight – and beat – a serious shoulder charge sanction at the judiciary on Tuesday night just to run out this week. He might have a permanent spot there after decking Milford, albeit buckling at the knees, high late in the first half prompting the concussion confusion. It was the flashpoint of a first half where a flying Corey Oates scored twice to chalk off Damien Cook’s opener.

In the second half, Souths were gone, down by 10 points. Then weren’t. The Broncos were then gone. Then weren’t. And then Milford, after missing an easy one with his right, snapped a field goal with his left to win it.

How much is he worth again?

Horror-Tahs: NSW sink into crisis after embarrassing loss to Kings

Wednesday, 13 March, 2019

The Waratahs are in the midst of a crisis and coach Daryl Gibson says a decision about his future is beyond his control after NSW suffered one of the most embarrassing defeats in the club’s history with a 26-24 loss to the Southern Kings in on Friday.
Nanjing Night Net

The Kings, who have been Super Rugby’s biggest flops in the last two seasons, hit the lead 19-17 in the 68th minute against a Waratahs team littered with international representatives.

The South Africans, who are almost certain to be booted from Super Rugby next year, were then awarded a penalty try, smashing the Waratahs pack time and again to the dismay of NSW fans, who booed their heroes as they packed up and left with minutes remaining.

Questions will now be asked of Gibson and his coaching staff in the coming days, for the Waratahs are now in crisis mode with six defeats from eight starts in 2017 and staring down the barrel of a horror year.

“When the team is in the situation it’s in, those questions are going to be asked,” Gibson said. “I’m going to cop it. Those decisions are beyond my control.

“At the end of the day, the coach is responsible for that performance. That’s a team not at it’s best and that’s my responsibility.

“There’s going to be a lot of soul searching in terms of [players] looking at themselves very deeply. That goes for everyone in the organisation [asking] are we at our best? Is everyone doing their jobs to the highest ability they are capable of? Only the players can answer that.”

For context, in the only other match-up between the two sides, the Waratahs annihilated the Kings 72-10 in 2013; their biggest-ever victory.

How times have changed.

The Waratahs froze with panic and senior players failed to lead from the front with their backs against the wall.

Gibson dead-batted a question about whether Wallabies representatives were in danger of losing their national jerseys if they didn’t raise their standards.

“Their No.1 focus is playing well for the Waratahs, first thing first is they’ve got to be at their best,” Gibson said. “I expect that of all our players to be their best and tonight they weren’t.”

If the Waratahs wanted to announce themselves as genuine contenders to play finals football, they fired a blank, showing fair and square they are nowhere near their best as they were outmuscled and outclassed in a David-versus-Goliath clash.

Gibson believed the Waratahs lacked urgency but stopped short of sticking the boot completely into his players, something no doubt his predecessor Michael Cheika would have done.

“The messages at half-time was I felt the team lacked urgency,” Gibson said. “Tonight, clearly not at out best. That’s probably the most frustrating thing. We were 17 points up and looking relatively comfortable.

“Given that inconsistency, we can’t be competitive for that full 80 minutes.”

If someone had said before the match the Kings would have 58 per cent of possession across the 80 minutes, you would have said they were dreaming.

NSW were probably capable of winning by 30 or 40 points if they played their best football and would have privately been eyeing a crucial bonus point.

Now, they go back to the drawing board in search of not just tries and competition points, but credibility among the NSW rugby community.

To make matters even worse, the Waratahs led 17-0 after 34 minutes but capitulated, struggling at set-piece and coughing up too much football at crucial moments.

Tighthead prop Paddy Ryan was penalised on a number of occasions at scrum-time and the absence of Sekope Kepu was clearly evident. Hooker Tolu Latu had an off night with his lineout throws.

Michael Hooper, who has arguably been the Waratahs’ standout player this year, was a broken man at full-time.

While his efforts on a personal note have been unwavering, the effect of captaining this Waratahs side must be taxing.

“It was a pretty embarrassing performance from us there,” Hooper told Fox Sports. “Our set-piece is terrible at the moment. It’s going to be a really tough weekend.”

The Waratahs scored the opening three tries of the match through Taqele Naiyaravoro, Rob Horne and Cam Clark but the Kings responded with a five-pointer of their own four minutes out from half-time to put the score at 17-7.

They made things even more interesting with another in the 47th minute.

Many thought they would drop off as they have done so often, but in what has to be one of their greatest wins, the Kings dealt NSW a serious dose of reality on one of their darkest evenings.

“Every time we lose at home that’s the most disappointing thing,” Gibson said. “Tonight we were a long way from our best.

“I wouldn’t think that complacency would creep into a team that’s in the position that we’re in and that’s frustrating.

“We got a good amount of work done [after the bye] but I’m not going to hide behind that as an excuse. Simply [we are] not at our best.”

The silver lining to the defeat was the Waratahs actually gained distance on the conference leading Brumbies, given they got within seven points of the Kings.

The Brumbies sit atop the Australian conference on 17 points, followed by the Reds (10), Force (9) and then Waratahs (9).

The Force play the Chiefs on Saturday.

TweetFacebookEsperance Express, I have spoken to community paramedic PaulGaughanmany times in the year I have worked in the scenic coastal town 700 kilometres south-east of Perth.

I’ve interviewed him about all sorts of issues and incidents around the region.

But it was still a shock to suddenly see him onMonday afternoon, standing over motionlessLaeticia Brouwerat the back of an ambulance pumping her chest in a desperate attempt to save the17-year-old surfer.

Under grey skies, with the beach looking far from its usual idyllic turquoise water and pristine white sand, Esperance’s off-road ambulance and a convoy of other four-wheel-drives had just driven off the beach.

In the middle of a chaotic, traumatic, heartbreaking scene in the beach car park, my eyes were fixed on MrGaughan, the St John Ambulance paramedic, as he fought for the teenager’s life: he was focused and composed.

When he initially took the call about a shark attack about 4pm on Easter Monday, MrGaughan’sheart sank.

MsBrouwerhad just been pulled from the water at a surfing spot known as the Kelp Beds on nearby Wylie Bay Beach.

“I got the call and heard that it was a shark attack, I just got in my vehicle and went straight away,” MrGaughansaid.

“We are terribly heartbroken and saddened by this tragic accident,”her tearful uncle Steve Evans saidas he thanked emergency service workers the next day.

“We can take comfort thatLaeticiadied doing something that she loved,” he said.

“The ocean was her and her family’s passion. Surfing was something she treasured doing with her Dad and her sisters.”

In a message later shared on social media, the Brouwer familysaid they had been“overwhelmed with care and love from the Esperance community and the people that helped –you were amazing”.

“There were people standing on the beach with my younger daughters for a long time that I didn’t get to thank.

“The nurse who did CPR while I breathed for Teesh (Laeticia). All the paramedics and the police officers who went above and beyond. We thank you all.”

The death of MsBrouwer, the 15th person killed by a shark in Western Australia since 2000, has sparked a political debate over the culling of sharks.

The state’s new Labor state government has said drum lines would no longer be dropped to catch dangerous sharks following fatalities.

“We made it clear in opposition that we don’t see the merit in automatically deploying drum lines because they don’t actually make our beaches any safer,” Fisheries Minister Dave Kelly said.

“We want to focus on promoting individual shark deterrents which can actually provide genuine protection for the people most at risk.”

At a Senate committee hearing into shark mitigation held in Perth on Thursday, Surf Life Saving Western Australia general manager Chris Peck said 4600 people had been cleared from the water at Perth beaches after shark warnings over the past two years.

“Our lifeguards have cleared thousands of people from the water… lives have been saved,” Mr Peck said.

But most shark attacks did not occur on the state’s 16 patrolled beaches, he said.

Mr Peck, along with shark researchers from the University of Western Australia and representatives from Sea Shepherd Australia, Shark Shield and Shark Alert, will provide evidence to the Senate inquiry.

The previous Liberal government authorised baited drum lines in Perth and beaches in the state’s south-west from January 2014.
