Win at all costs CYMS’ mindset: Sullivan calls on semi-finals mentality – Video

Posted on by

BIG GAME PLAYER: Riley Law and his Orange CYMS teammates head to Bathurst tomorrow desperate to keep their season alive. Photo: STEVE GOSCH 0810sgleague2WITH their Group 10 premier league season on the line against Bathurst St Pat’s on Sunday, Orange CYMS captain-coach Mick Sullivan’s message to his players is simple – just win.
南京夜网

CYMS travel to Bathurst on Sunday to take on the competition leaders at the Bathurst Sportsground desperate for a victory, despite their fate being somewhat in cross-town rivals Orange Hawks’ hands.

CYMS sit fifth, just two points in front of Bathurst Panthers, with a slightly better points difference.

Hawks tackle Panthers on Saturday at Wade Park, and if the latter scores an upset victory CYMS must beat St Pat’s or risk missing the finals altogether.

A Hawks victory would secure CYMS fifth place regardless of Sunday’s result.

“It would be great if Hawks help us out by winning [today],” Sullivan said.

WATCH OUR GROUP 10 ROUND 18 PREVIEW VIDEO:

“But Panthers are a big, mobile side and they’re on a roll. I wouldn’t be surprised if they knock Hawks off.

“In that regard we’re not worrying about that result, we’re going to Bathurst to win regardless.”

Sullivan said his side had reason to be confident after upsetting early season front runners Mudgee last week.

“It’s no secret the Dragons had a few guys missing, but St Pat’s only just beat the same Mudgee side,” Sullivan said.

“We’ve got a lot of big-game players in our side who know how to get the job done, and I’m confident we will.

“We just need to make sure we improve on the little things we’ve been doing wrong, turning over cheap ball in particular.

STORY: Respected CYMS prop forced into early retirement

“Pat’s are a good attacking side, and they will make us pay if we give them cheap ball. If we can hold onto it and get ourselves 50-50 [possession], that will go a long way to winning us the game.

“We know what we have to do, our semi-finals started last week against Mudgee. We didn’t earn the right at a second chance so we need to win every week, full stop.

“If we can sneak into the five this competition is as much ours to lose as any other team.”

CYMS have retired their premier league and first division No.8 jerseys as a tribute to injured prop Kiel Vardanega, and Des Knight will wear No.15 as a result.

Kick-off at Bathurst Sportsground is scheduled for 2.30pm.

ORANGE CYMS: 1 Dan Stuart, 2 Jarrod Robbins, 3 Tim Bassmann, 4 Matt Penny, 5 Ryan Griffin, 6 Ben McAlpine, 7 Mick Sullivan, 15 Des Knight, 9 Sam Hill, 10 Zac Bohan, 11 Adam Gibson, 12 Riley Law, 13 Ben Gosper; Bench: 14 Brent Colley, 16 Ryan Prevett.

Bloods determined to avoid a rare spoon

Posted on by

YOUNG BLOOD: South Bendigo’s Ryley Barrack has been selected on a wing against Castlemaine..FOOTY HQ PREVIEW VIDEO
南京夜网

SOUTH Bendigo will be spurred on by the motivation of avoiding the club’s first Bendigo Football League woodenspoon in almost 50 years when it hosts Castlemaine at the Queen Elizabeth Oval on Saturday.

With the Bloods and Magpies both on two wins apiece entering round 17, the loser of this match is likely to finish on the bottom of the ladder.

While Castlemaine has claimed two of the past fourwoodenspoons, South Bendigo hasn’t finished on the bottom of the ladder since 1965 when it won three games under Maurie Collins.

“It’s a fantastic effort by the club to have maintained a level of competitiveness of being in the finals or just missing out on finals and never having been right down for so long,” Bloods co-coach Peter Tyack said on Friday.

“This group of players has a lot of pride and is very keen to get out there on Saturday and make sure the club doesn’t get that woodenspoon.”

The Bloods are coming off a one-point loss to Maryborough last Sunday – their second loss by the barest of margins this season – while the week before they pushed fifth-placed Kangaroo Flat until midway through the final quarter.

“The boys are still putting up some very competitive performances and they will go out on Saturday with a lot of intensity at the footy to make sure we come out on top,” Tyack said.

Castlemaine coach Shane Robertson said the Magpies weren’t concerned by the prospect of finishing last on the ladder, with his focus on building for the future.

“Over the past three weeks we haven’t been about winning or losing, we’ve been looking to next year and that’s why we played half-a-dozen juniors last Saturday,” Robertson said.

“Unfortunately, you’ve got to pay the price in order to get experience into your young players, and if that means the wooden spoon comes along, then it comes along.

“We’ve had a topsy-turvy sort of a season and if the woodenspoon is a result of it, then so be it, but looking ahead to next year is more important and that’s the way we’ll attack this game.”

The Magpies last Saturday kicked their highest score since early in the 2012 season when they booted 15.13 (103) in a 28-point loss to Kyneton, while the previous week they competed with flag contender Sandhurst for two-and-a-half quarters at the QEO.

The Magpies’ focus on youth last week included under-18 players Kane Timmins, Benjamin Leech, Tommy Horne, Natnael McLaren, Mark Noonan and Kalan Huntly all playing in the seniors.

“Hopefully, our senior players can balance it out on Saturday and we have a bit of luck,” Robertson said.

Katie Maree McIntyre’s passion for fashion

Posted on by

FASHION LABEL: Morpeth’s Katie Maree McIntyre has launched her own online fashion business. Picture by STUART SCOTTKatie Maree McIntyre has taken her love for fashion and launched her own label online.
南京夜网

Simply called Katie Maree, the label caters to women who want quality evening ware with classic lines.

“It’s been a dream since I was little,” the 21-year-old from Morpeth said.

Miss McIntyre studied textiles and commerce at the All Saints College, Saint Mary’s campus, and has completed a Diploma in Fashion Design at Newcastle TAFE.

With that experience she has lovingly crafted a line of seven garments that form the winter range, in the competitive $70 to $190 price range, and will soon release her spring ­collection.

“I pride myself in using quality fabrics and I’m interested in making a classic, stylish look that’s always in trend,” she said.

Like many new businesses there have been challenges, but Ms McIntyre was committed to the long haul.

Since establishing a small workshop from her wages as a bar attendant, she has set up a website complete with online checkout and electronic payment facilities.

The challenges haven’t stopped there.

“Sourcing quality fabric was reasonably hard at the start too,” she said. “[But] the hardest thing is getting my name out there. Hopefully once people realise I’m a local designer with quality fabrics, [sales] might really get going.”

For the time being the young designer handles every aspect of the business from design to ­pattern making and sewing, along with the ­bookkeeping and online orders.

Miss McIntyre wants to expand the business with the consignment of garments through ­boutique stores and put one or two sewers on the books.

There are strictly no plans to outsource the manufacturing, she said.

“I want to keep it all Australian-made which makes it a standout these days,” she said.

It helps that Miss McIntyre has a strong role model in her aunty, Lisa Brown, who has a ­successful label on the Gold Coast.

“I would love to go down that track and ­create a good name for myself,” Miss McIntyre said.

“It’s always interested me how designers can keep making new looks and reinventing past trends.”

Her future plans also extend to a range of casual ware.
