Dozens of baby turtles released into Qld waters

After months of care, almost 60 turtle hatchlings have been escorted away from danger and released into safe waters.
Nanjing Night Net

On Monday 58 baby loggerhead turtles were taken by boat from Sea Life Sunshine Coast and released into the East Australian Current – 20 kilometres from Mooloolaba.

Now released, it is expected the turtles won’t return to Queensland waters for 16 years.

The hatchlings started their journey in January when they were collected from nests at Mon Repos, near Bundaberg, as part of the world-renowned Queensland Turtle Conservation project.

They were then carefully incubated at exactly 29.9 degrees and had their hatching timed to coincide with the World Science Festival last month.

Queensland Museum reptile curator Patrick Couper said the turtles hatching at the festival gave visitors the chance to see something that is usually hidden from public view.

Once hatched, they still spent several days in the incubator.

“Usually at this stage of life, they would still be buried deep within the nesting chamber and unable to crawl to the surface until their bodies had fully straightened,” Mr Couper said.

“Then, once fully straightened, they were placed in a tank before being transported to Sea Life Sunshine Coast, where they have spent the last couple of weeks.”

The turtles release was postponed by the unpredictable weather caused by ex tropical cyclone Debbie – but Sea Life Sunshine Coast curator Aaron Sprowl said the delay gave the hatchlings the best chance of survival.

“We release them 20 kilometres off the coast of Mooloolaba to avoid predators that hunt in the shallow coastal waters,” he said.

“From here they will travel past the northern tip of New Zealand and on to the coasts of Chile and Peru and won’t return to Queensland waters for 16 years.”

The loggerhead turtle release was funded by the SeaLife Trust.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal knocked back the WildThings Festival in a recent ruling–the latest hurdle for the micro-festival.

► NATIONAL: A Liberal MP has called on Tony Abbott to quit Parliament, labelling the former prime minister a “wrecker” who is trashing his own legacy and sacrificing the national interest to wage “jihad” against Malcolm Turnbull.

Queensland MP Warren Entsch said Mr Abbott’s “nonsense” was driving voters into the arms of minor parties and independents, and likened his actions to Kevin Rudd’s relentless campaign of vengeance against Julia Gillard.

► Forresters Beach, NSW:OnEaster Sunday, 2008, a detective repeatedly struck a plastic dummy doused in blood in an experiment part-way through the trial of a teenager, 16, charged with the shocking stabbing murder of a girl, 15, on the Central Coast.

In a judgment on Thursday, almost nineyears to the day since the experiment, three judges of the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal ruled that while much of the detective’s evidence was misleading or incorrect, and almost certainly influenced the jury’s guilty verdict, the murderer’s appeal against his conviction“must be dismissed”.

► Newcastle, NSW: The elegant, once controversial, Civic Park fountain in Newcastle is taken for granted today. It’s a timeless, classic design. One passionate Sydney radio broadcaster has described it as “one of the finest pieces of public sculpture in Australia”.

Even after all these years it still appears modern. Not a bad achievement for something that wasunveiled back in November 1966.

World news:►Washington:Donald Trump has drawn his own red line on North Korea’s dangerous weapons program – equating a threatened intercontinental missile test with a nuclear weapon that could hit the US, the President tweeted bluntly in January: “It won’t happen.”

And at the weekend, his aides gave definition to that categoric claim’s terms and timeline – for now, at least, it stops short of a pre-emptive military strike, but Pyongyang’s determination to press ahead with tests is a challenge that Trump will confront within months.

►Malaysia:The well-planned abduction by at least 15 masked men of a Protestant pastor and the disappearances of three other church-linked people in Malaysia have prompted fears of religious vigilantism in the Muslim-majority nation.

Security camera footage showed the daylight abduction of the 62 year-old pastor Raymond Koh in the leafy suburb of Kelana Jaya near the capital Kuala Lumpur on February 13.

Put women and girls at centre of foreign policy, Australia urged

Foreign Affairs minister Julie Bishop poses for photos with Australian global heads of mission in Canberra for a meeting at at Parliament House on Tuesday 28 March 2017. Photo: Andrew Meares Photo: Andrew MearesInternational aid organisations have told the Turnbull government to place women and girls at the centre of Australia’s new foreign policy initiative.
Nanjing Night Net

Concentrating on educating girls aged 10 to 19 would also give families living in neighbouring countries the greatest chance of moving out of poverty, they say.

“Greater gender equality delivers stronger economic growth and security. It is strongly correlated with greater peace and stability,” Care Australia chief executive Sally Moyle said in the organisation’s submission to the white paper process. “It is beyond doubt that supporting gender equality internationally, and particularly in our Indo-Pacific region, is in Australia’s interest.”

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop is looking to establish a new “philosophical framework” to guide Australia’s engagement with the world.

In addition to the public consultation process, Ms Bishop recently recalled all of Australia’s heads of mission for a meeting to discuss the government’s diplomatic approach.

In 2015, the government of Sweden announced it would put feminism at the centre of its foreign policy.

Sweden’s foreign minister Margot Wallstrom??? has since explained that gender equality is a “prerequisite” for achieving Sweden’s foreign and security policy objectives.

Plan International Australia, an organisation committed to the rights of children around the world, said the Turnbull government should “be informed by Sweden’s feminist foreign policy, where gender equality is recognised as not only a goal in itself but also essential to achieving peace, security and sustainable development”.

The Australian Christian Lobby recently urged the government to adopt Donald Trump’s ban on foreign aid money being spent on abortion.

But other organisations have told the government women and girls in developing countries need better access to reproductive health services – including abortion – if they are to have any hope of getting an education and finding work as a pathway out of poverty.

Care, Marie Stopes International, Plan International Australia and the Burnet Institute, among others, are urging the government to make gender equality a key focus of its foreign policy.

“Although boys are at a greater risk of recruitment to violent groups and networks, women’s role in reducing conflict is well regarded. As such, interventions should ensure both boys and girls have the best start in life, are healthy and educated and are empowered to participate positively to their communities. Through improving health, school retention and employment, family planning is a powerful precursor to realising women’s empowerment and gender equality, and assuring women’s and girls’ roles in civic life and the promotion of peace and stability,” Marie Stopes International wrote in its submission.

The women’s health charity advised the government to concentre on safe pregnancy programs in its regional aid programs.

“Multiple, successive births, particularly amongst young women, significantly increase the risk of pregnancy-related deaths and disability. Family planning is widely recognised as one of the most cost-effective approaches to improving maternal health … Adolescent pregnancy however, is a major contributing factor to poor school attendance and completion. Reducing unintended pregnancies, particularly amongst girls, supports improved educational and employment opportunities. In fact, for every year a girl past the age of nine spends in school, her income potential increases 20 per cent.”

‘Back off’: Liberal MP urges ‘wrecker’ Tony Abbott to quit Parliament

Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced a Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption with Attorney-General Senator George Brandis and Employment minister Senator Eric Abetz during a press conference in his Parliament House courtyard in Canberra on Monday 10 February 2014 Photo: Andrew Meares Photo: Andrew MearesA Liberal MP has called on Tony Abbott to quit Parliament, labelling the former prime minister a “wrecker” who is trashing his own legacy and sacrificing the national interest to wage “jihad” against Malcolm Turnbull.
Nanjing Night Net

Queensland MP Warren Entsch said Mr Abbott’s “nonsense” was driving voters into the arms of minor parties and independents, and likened his actions to Kevin Rudd’s relentless campaign of vengeance against Julia Gillard.

Responding to Mr Abbott’s latest public interventions – a newspaper column in which he sought to diagnose the problems of modern politics, and a high-profile Sydney radio interview – Mr Entsch called on him to “back off”.

Mr Abbott should honour his promise of “no wrecking, no sniping and no undermining”, Mr Entsch told Fairfax Media.

“He made it quite clear when he left office that he would not be a Kevin Rudd, that he would not provide a running commentary, he would positively contribute. He was very specific when he said that – and most of us believed him.

“But what he’s doing now is reinforcing all the negative aspects of his time. And if it continues like this, this will be his legacy – and he won’t be remembered fondly. He’ll just be seen as a wrecker, hellbent on destroying an individual.”

Opinion is divided among Coalition MPs as to whether Mr Abbott is seeking to reclaim the prime ministership or is simply intent on damaging Mr Turnbull. But Mr Entsch said Ms Gillard provided the model of how a dignified former prime minister should behave.

He also said Mr Abbott did positive things during his time as leader and could contribute more – but not as an MP. The backbencher also pointed out that much of the advice Mr Abbott now offers he failed to follow himself.

“Now for him to have what appears to be a vendetta against Malcolm Turnbull, you have got to ask the question: where is the national interest in all this?

“And you wonder why we see people moving towards minor parties and independents, when they see this sort of nonsense going on? At the end of the day people are saying, well it’s a pox on both the major parties.”

The leadership spill that ended his prime ministership was driven by the backbench and not orchestrated by Mr Turnbull, he added: “Somebody had to be a leader. Malcolm was prepared to stand up and do it but Malcolm had nothing to do with Tony losing his prime ministership – Tony did that himself.”

Fairfax Media contacted nearly two dozen Coalition MPs on Monday to canvass their views on Mr Abbott’s motivation and future, however even members of the former prime minister’s rival moderate faction were loathe to publicly condemn him.

Jason Falinski, whose seat is also on Sydney’s north shore, said Mr Abbott had “solid” ideas.

“He’s right to point out that it’s become very difficult to govern in Australia,” he said. “There’s no pressure from his community to go. That’s got to be a decision for Tony and his family.”

The fresh outburst prompted former Liberal leader John Hewson to say Mr Abbott’s critique was “wearing thinner and thinner each time”, and if he would not quit, he should narrow his attacks to Labor.

“He’s at the point now where he’s doing himself gratuitous harm,” Dr Hewson told Fairfax Media.

“I think he does less and less harm each time to the government and more and more harm to himself and his credibility.

“If he’s going to stay in the Parliament, do something constructive. He ought to think long and hard about what that ought to be.”

On radio on Monday, Mr Abbott revealed he had a blunt “man-to-man” talk with Mathias Cormann after the Finance Minister publicly attacked him last time he lashed out at the Turnbull government.

Mr Abbott earned a stern rebuke from Senator Cormann in February over his scathing critique of the Coalition government’s direction, but Mr Abbott didn’t take it lying down.

“Mathias and I had a man-to-man talk you might say about that particular outburst of his,” he told 2GB host Ray Hadley. “We had a very blunt conversation about it. If you don’t like what someone is doing, rather than speak out publicly at least in the first instance you should have a man-to-man discussion.”

Mr Abbott said while Senator Cormann was doing a good job, he had reminded him that as a former PM it was his prerogative to speak out on national and international issues “where I think it’s for the good of the country and for the good of the party”.

The stoush between the two Liberal heavyweights was triggered after Mr Abbott used a TV interview to accuse the Coalition of becoming “Labor-lite” and said politics should not be “just a contest of toxic egos or someone’s vanity project”.

Senator Cormann declined to comment on Mr Abbott’s latest contributions.

Liberal MP Craig Kelly said Mr Abbott was entitled to express his opinions but warned another change in leaders would be “an absolute, unmitigated disaster”.

Liberal senator James Paterson said he agreed Mr Abbott was entitled to argue for the things he believed in, but that he should use his ability to command public attention “carefully, reasonably and judiciously”.

Knights, NRL favouring a Wests-case scenario

AFTER years of playing hard-to-get, the Wests Group has emerged as the leading candidate to buy the Newcastle Knights –possibly before the end of this season.
Nanjing Night Net

HOPEFUL: Knights chairman Brian McGuigan says Newcastle’s franchise needs an owner capable of providing financial viability for at least a decade.

While both the NRL and Wests Group chief executive Phil Gardner have been reluctant to comment, citing confidentiality agreements, Knightschairman Brian McGuigan confirmed on Monday that negotiations were advanced.

He also revealed that there were other interested parties in contention.

“The NRL are talking very seriously with Wests,’’ McGuigan said. “It hasn’t been done yet, and a number of other alternatives have come out of the woodwork.

“But as we’ve always said, it’s got to be someone who has the best interests of Newcastle at heart and the capacity to run the club for another decade. There have been too many changes over the years …we need to ensure that the long-term future of the club is in place.

“That is the legacy that this board has to leave.’’

The NRL, which has bankrolled the Knights since the demise of former owner Nathan Tinkler in 2014, put the franchise out to tender last September.

But despite expressions of interest from 17 entities, the sales process was scaled back in December.

It is understood that Wests, who were not among the tenders,and the NRL then kicked off talks.

“It’s been narrowed down to Wests, and there are a couple of others, but as a board, we all favour Wests,’’ McGuigan said.

“Maybe in some sort arrangement with local interests as well. But the NRL are going to determine that.”

There has been speculation that Wests and the NRL would initially form a joint venture before the governing body eventually relinquishes its stake. If Wests’ seven-person board of directors –presidentOwen Kilpatrick, Jack Ashman, Geoff Coburn,Robert Darcy,Scott Holmes,Wayne Hore andJohn McLaughlin –vote in favour of the proposed takeover, it is understood the club’s members would then be asked to ratify or reject the dealat a special general meeting.

McGuigan said he was uncertain about a possible time frame but imagined there might be a transitional “change-over” period before the end of this season.

Newcastle’s chairman said the “One Chance Our Knights” community-ownership proposal had not been ruled out.

“We hope to fulfill everyone’s ambitions with what we are trying to achieve,’’ he said. “But in the end, it will be an NRL decision.’’

The Our Knights concept was launched in December, whereby organisers hoped to raise $20 million in start-up capital by selling shares at $500 apiece.

Wests has been a sponsor of the Knights since the club’s 1988 foundation season.

The biggest licensed-club group in Newcastle and the Hunter, it provides the Knights with an administration office and training base and has long been regarded as a logical owner of the city’s NRL franchise.

Brumbies running into statistical Hurricane across the ditch

It has been more than three years since the ACT Brumbies tasted victory in New Zealand but skipper Sam Carter says his men will be fired up when they cross the ditch this week.
Nanjing Night Net

The Brumbies are desperate to snap a seven-game losing streak in New Zealand when they take on the Wellington Hurricanes in Napier on Friday night.

The Brumbies have lost nine of their past 10 clashes against Kiwi opposition and their horror run in New Zealand dates back to March 7, 2014 when they upstaged the Hurricanes at home.

Last Saturday the Brumbies were stunned by a previously winless Melbourne Rebels and things won’t get any easier against the best attacking team in Super Rugby this week.

The Hurricanes have only dropped one game this season and lead Super Rugby in almost every attacking statistic, sitting as firm $3.60 favourites to win back-to-back premierships.

They have 12 more tires than any other club this season with 48 scored in just seven matches at an average of 6.85 per hit-out.

The Brumbies last win against a Kiwi team was in round one last season when they humbled the Hurricanes 52-10, but the Wellington outfit bounced back in tremendous fashion to win the competition and have this season picked up where they left off.

The Hurricanes are 31 clean breaks ahead of the competition with 129, have left 34 more players in their wake after beating 210 defenders en route to a record 4164m gained.

While those stats would even make Brumbies enforcer Scott Fardy shudder, the ACT team are one of the best defensive units in Super Rugby with an 88 per cent tackle success rate.

Carter conceded complacency may have been a factor in the unacceptable loss to the Rebels, stating his men must bounce back and end their New Zealand drought.

“Those are the kind of matches we need to be winning if we’re going to be a serious threat this season and by our standards that wasn’t good enough and we’ll need to up our game against the Canes,” Carter said.

“There’s no better time than the present [to win in New Zealand], we want to go well in those competitions over there and to be the best you’ve got the beat the best and they’re one of the form teams of the competition.

“It would be a massive confidence boost beating the Canes over there, we’ve had a good record against them in recent years but it doesn’t count for much this week because it’s going to be a tough match.”

Australian teams are winless from 12 attempts against New Zealand opposition this season and have won just three of the past 38 Trans-Tasman clashes.

“I can’t talk for the other teams but I know our team is going to be pretty fired up going to New Zealand this week,” Carter said.

“We’ve had two tough losses this season against the Crusaders and the Highlanders already, so we’re certainly not going to be taking the Hurricanes lightly.

“Set piece moves, counter attack and our defense are the cornerstones of our game and if we can get those right then we’ll go a long way towards winning.”

Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham emphasised an interrupted training week was no excuse for the Rebels loss, but said his staff must stay on their toes.

“It was very a disjointed week, we had Wallaby camp so those boys were out on Monday and we had our first run on Tuesday and it wasn’t a great run,” Larkham said.

“As coaches we need to look at making sure we pick things up on Monday and Tuesday when things aren’t going well.

“Thursday was a good session so no excuses there, but certainly the beginning of the week is something we’ll address as a coaching staff.”

Former champion Geale backs Canberra’s Toussaint to win a world title

Former world middleweight champion Daniel Geale has “no doubt” Canberra boxer Dave Toussaint can win a world title and signalled a changing of the guard in Australian boxing.
Nanjing Night Net

Geale fought one of the world’s best in Gennady Golovkin at Madison Square Garden and his backing has propelled the largely unknown Toussaint into the spotlight.

The light may soon get brighter for Toussaint, with talks in place to have the Canberran fight on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium on July 2.

It will be the biggest fight ever seen on Australian shores and possibly another step in what Geale predicts could be a long and successful journey for Toussaint.

The pair sparred last May after one of Toussaint’s fights fell through, and amidst his own uncertain future Geale has passed the torch to Australia’s No.3 ranked middleweight.

Toussaint quit his job as an electrician a year ago to chase his boxing dream and improved to 10-0 with a TKO victory over Junior Talipeau last November.

“He definitely would have the potential to win a world title, I have no doubt,” Geale said.

“I know it’s extremely tough in Australia making sure that you have the right team around you, and I’m sure his team are doing the best for him.

“But it’s very hard in Australia to get the right fights and normally Australians aren’t really looked at from around the world as that big of a challenge to be honest.”

Geale believes Australian fighters can be “taken for granted” on the world stage, but says Toussaint has the potential to change all of that.

It would mean travelling overseas and winning tough fights with the weight of the world on his shoulders – but Geale is adamant Toussaint “has what it takes to be able to do that”.

“He’s at the stage of his career where things are a little bit tough and he has to take a few risks and fight guys that are ranked much higher than him and perform under pressure as well,” Geale said.

“The way he’s been going, that’s something that will probably suit him pretty well.”

Toussaint says for someone who has “been there and done that” to give him such a rap shows that taking a punt on a boxing career has been worth the risk.

The 26-year-old is itching to test himself overseas but for the moment has unfinished business in his home country, with eyes on the Australian title.

“It’s all going in the right direction,” Toussaint said.

“As long as I keep training, put my head down and work for it to try and get it, [winning a world title] could happen. Why not?

“[Geale is] probably the best middleweight Australia’s had in the past decade if not longer. It was good getting in there and doing some rounds with a legend like that.”

Much like Geale, Toussaint has always let his boxing do the talking – in a sport brimming with “loudmouths” the Canberran has no ambitions to be one of them.

Geale had seen Toussaint fight as an amateur experienced firsthand just how impressive he is in the ring when they sparred together.

Geale has gone through his fair share of sparring partners in his 36 professional fights and usually their nerves are par for the course – but Toussaint “got straight down to business”.

“I knew there was a fair bit of talk about him as well and he’s got a lot of potential,” Geale said.

“He had plenty of confidence in his own ability so that’s always a plus, that under a little bit of extra pressure he still performed as well as he wanted to.”

Showpo settles data ‘theft’ case against rival

Online retailers Showpo and Black Swallow have settled their data breach dispute, after Showpo alleged one of its former graphic designers downloaded the company’s entire customer database and passed it on to her new employers at Black Swallow.
Nanjing Night Net

Sydney-based Black Swallow has been ordered to pay $60,000 to Showpo in instalments over the next several months and both parties are to pay their own legal costs. Following these payments, the case is to be dismissed.

Graphic designer Melissa Aroutunian, 24, has been permanently restrained from using or disclosing the client contact list and has been ordered to cover her legal costs.

Showpo, which is on track to book $25 million in revenue for 2016 and was founded in 2010 by entrepreneur Jane Lu, is an online retailing business selling fast and affordable fashion.

Black Swallow, which launched 18 months ago, is a smaller, but similar e-commerce business.

Before last week’s settlement, Ms Aroutunian was accused of exporting Showpo’s 306,000-strong customer database before she resigned from the company last year. Showpo alleged Ms Aroutunian passed it on to Black Swallow, which began sending promotional emails to the contacts.

The database included contact information of customers, contacts, buyers, suppliers, associates, competition entrants, web users and subscribers.

There was no credit card or financial information contained on the list.

Showpo had also accused Black Swallow of marketing itself as an affiliate of the company by using similar branding, but the court has not ordered Black Swallow to amend its logos or its website.

Previously, Black Swallow chief executive Alex Baro denied he offered Ms Aroutunian payment in return for copying the client list.

Both Showpo and Black Swallow declined to comment on the court orders. The insider threat

According to Deloitte, some 14 per cent of data breaches are perpetrated by disgruntled ex-employees.

Commenting on matters unrelated to Showpo’s allegations, Steve Durbin, managing director of the Information Security Forum, said: “Between human error and malicious insiders, time has shown us the majority of data breaches originate inside company walls.

“Employees and negligence are the leading causes of security incidents but remain the least reported issue.”

Carnegie Mellon University has found that 70 per cent of insiders who stole intellectual property from an employer did so within 60 days of their termination from an organisation.

Mr Durbin recommends companies regularly re-evaluate who has privileged access to company data and include security and trust in supervision, performance management and appraisals.

“It is useful to consider, at each stage of the employment life cycle, what trust the organisation is placing in people, and what can be done to reduce risk and improve trustworthiness,” he said.

The last time Hawthorn lost by a bigger margin to Geelong was in 1937An hour before the first bounce, Geelong coach Chris Scott addressed his players on the edge of the centre-bounce circle, before they continued their warm-up. It was a rare public move, for such addresses are typically kept for behind closed doors.

Perhaps it was to sharpen the focus of his unbeaten side, coming up against their greatest modern rival at a time when the Hawks were winless and hurting.

Whatever was said, the Cats listened. They, too, would also be hurting once this contest was over but the four points – and an unbeaten start to the season – were safe after an 86-point win despite finishing with two fit men on the bench.

The last time Hawthorn lost by a bigger margin to Geelong was in 1937.

Playmaker Patrick Dangerfield was kneed in the ribs and kidney region by Jarryd Roughead in a marking contest in the first term and lacked his usual zest from that point. He was assessed and bravely returned to the fray, even declaring everything was “all sweet” at half-time despite being in obvious pain.

He would finish with 27 disposalsbut the dash he had in this corresponding fixture of a year earlier wasn’t there.

Tom Ruggles was crunched when he ran into a Josh Gibson shepherd in the second term. In some ways, it was like an old-fashioned shirt-front. Where Gibson could face scrutiny from the match-review panel is through the accidental head-knock, which left the young Cat with concussion. He did notreturn to the field in the second half.

Midfielder Sam Menegola may also face some pain from the match review panel, after he was reported for a dangerous, slinging tackle on Luke Hodge late in the third term. Fortunately for Menegola, Hodge got up and played on.

For the Hawks, the hurt of an 0-4 start to the season – and successive 10-goal defeats for the first time since 2006 – was undeniable. Alastair Clarkson had pointed to his side making the finals in 2010 despite a 1-6 start but the predicament this new-look side is in is different. No team has made the finals from a 0-4 start since the top-eight system began in 1994.

The Hawks did fight in the third term, certainly more than was the case against the Gold Coast Suns a week earlier.

Trailing by four goals at half-time, and realising their season was on the line, the Hawks’tackling pressure early in the third term troubled the Cats, and helped to open up the contest.

The Hawks would have an 8-1 advantage in clearances by midway through the term – reversing a 20-12 deficit at the main break – but they couldn’t convert where it counted.

The Cats then took charge. Tom Hawkins, always a threat, won a free kick and converted, Daniel Menzel followed up within minutes and when James Parsons’ long bomb sailed through – the first goal of his two-game career – the Cats had this in the bag despite their wayward efforts in front of goal in the first half.

Parsons’ memories of this day is likely to be soured after he was reported for for a raised elbow which caught Hodge flush on the jaw early in the final term.

The Cats would continue to flourish in the final term with 11 goals, their best term ever against the Hawks confirming the demise of the once-great dynasty.

What was noticeable was the last of impact several of the Hawks’premierships heroes exerted. Skipper Jarryd Roughead, Cyril Rioli, Jack Gunston, Luke Breust and Paul Puopolo were largely non-factors. Will Langford briefly got moving in the third term. Billy Hartung, a man the Hawks needed to lift with Brad Hill moving on, is not consistent.

Hodge was superb. He had 12 touches in the first term and 35 for the match but he needed more support.

The Hawks’ disposal efficiency was again an issue, having dropped to tenth in the league before this clash, while they were again smacked in contested possessions.

On a day when Joel Selwood and Dangerfield had reasonably quiet afternoons, the Cats found drive in other areas.

Mitch Duncan, now one of the Cats’ blue-chip midfielders, and a maturing Steve Motlop provided run all day. Motlop’s 33 touches would be an equal career high. He was sledged by the Hawks in this corresponding clash two years ago for a late-night drinking session and was suspended for a week. This time, he would have a day to remember.

Former Blues Lachie Henderson and Zach Tuohy intercepted forward thrusts, and also counter-attacked with aplomb. Tuohy’s run-down from behind of Isaac Smith in the third term, stopping an almost certain goal from about 40m, highlighted his commitment.

For the Hawks, there is much to debate from here. Is their next generation of talent ready to help carry what is a rebuilding side? The absence of Jaeger O’Meara hurt, although he was barely sighted against the Suns last week.

The Cats are a legitimate premiership threat and have weapons across all lines. Certainly in the short term, this once great rivalry between the Hawks and Cats – the latter with three straight wins – appears to be a one-way street.

Geelong crush dismal Hawks to go top as sorry Hawthorn go bottom

An hour before the first bounce, Geelong coach Chris Scott addressed his players on the edge of the centre-bounce circle, before they continued their warm-up. It was a rare public move, for such addresses are typically kept for behind closed doors.

Perhaps it was to sharpen the focus of his unbeaten side, coming up against their greatest modern rival at a time when the Hawks were winless and hurting.

Whatever was said, the Cats listened. They, too, would also be hurting once this contest was over but the four points – and an unbeaten start to the season – were safe after an 86-point win despite finishing with two fit men on the bench.

The last time Hawthorn lost by a bigger margin to Geelong was in 1937.

Playmaker Patrick Dangerfield was kneed in the ribs and kidney region by Jarryd Roughead in a marking contest in the first term and lacked his usual zest from that point. He was assessed and bravely returned to the fray, even declaring everything was “all sweet” at half-time despite being in obvious pain.

He would finish with 27 disposals but the dash he had in this corresponding fixture of a year earlier wasn’t there.

Tom Ruggles was crunched when he ran into a Josh Gibson shepherd in the second term. In some ways, it was like an old-fashioned shirt-front. Where Gibson could face scrutiny from the match-review panel is through the accidental head-knock, which left the young Cat with concussion. He did not return to the field in the second half.

Midfielder Sam Menegola may also face some pain from the match review panel, after he was reported for a dangerous, slinging tackle on Luke Hodge late in the third term. Fortunately for Menegola, Hodge got up and played on.

For the Hawks, the hurt of an 0-4 start to the season – and successive 10-goal defeats for the first time since 2006 – was undeniable. Alastair Clarkson had pointed to his side making the finals in 2010 despite a 1-6 start but the predicament this new-look side is in is different. No team has made the finals from a 0-4 start since the top-eight system began in 1994.

The Hawks did fight in the third term, certainly more than was the case against the Gold Coast Suns a week earlier.

Trailing by four goals at half-time, and realising their season was on the line, the Hawks’ tackling pressure early in the third term troubled the Cats, and helped to open up the contest.

James Sicily, a late inclusion for Ty Vickery, came alive inside attacking 50, and prompted Harry Taylor to be switched from attack to defence. Taylor had opportunities to goal in the first half but he appears so much more comfortable as a defender.

“They (Hawthorn) are not playing their best at the moment. So we acknowledge we need to keep improving our game and not worry about too much where we sit in the competition because I think that is hard to get a guide on,” Scott would say later.

“I am pretty sure we are not the best team but we could be at some stage.”
