The Mininera and District Football League will implement a salary cap for the 2017 season.The Mininera and District Football League will implement a salary cap for the 2017 season.

League board member Brendan Kelly said the final amount hadnot been decided.

“The Mininera league will definitely have a salary cap next year,” Kellysaid.

“We will get the feedback from AFL Victoria and then discuss it at our October board meeting.And then we will passthe information along to the clubs.”

AFL Western District hosted an information session in August to gain some feedback on the draft policy.

AFL Western District region manager Lachy Patterson said it was a beneficial night for all involved.

“Thedraft version of the salary cap policywas distributed to clubs beforehand,” Patterson said.

“The information sessionwas a really interactive session where clubs could ask questions and gain a better understanding of the policy.”

Patterson said the feedback regarding the policy has generally been positive from Mininera and Districtclubs.

“The majority of clubs understand the reasons why a cap is required,” he said.

“The revised draft policy is currently on the desk of AFL executives and I am certainly hopeful it will be out as soon as possible.

“We are keen to start the implementation of the policy once it is all ticked off.”

Hawkesdale-Macarthur Football Club president Des Cameron said the new policy will create even more work for volunteers.

“We are not in favour of the salary cap,” he said.

“We have no issue with the proposed amount but we do have concerns about the complexities of enforcing it.

“We think there are certain grey areas that will be especially hard to enforce.”

The AFL brought in a points system to try and equalise each team from poaching excessive outside talent from other areas.

Cameron said that should be all that is needed.

“We thought the points system would straighten out all the disparities,” he said.

“When we went to the AFL Victoriameeting, we brought up the workload and paperwork issue.

“We got told to employ an accountant to implement the paperwork correctly.

“If we do that, it just adds more costs to all the clubs to maintain additional records.

“So it puts a lot of volunteers and individuals that run our club.

“The ramifications if you get it wrong are something you definitely want to avoid.”

BARNSTORMING: Zac Merritt’s stunning performances for Forbes made him a certain inclusion in the Western Rams squad. Photo: BELINDA SOOLEPREMIERSHIP winning Forbes forwards Zac Merritt, Jake Grace and Ben Maguire and Mudgee brute Hamish Bryant headline a bumper Western squad named to take on Italy next month.

The Magpies trio and the Dragons’newly crowned Dave Scott Medallist have been named in Darren Jackson’s 21-strong squad preparing to tackle the Azzurri at Bathurst’sCarrington Park on October 15.

After barnstorming performances leading their respective sides to Group 10 and Group 11 premiership glory, the quartet will slide straight into Jackson’s representative outfit as heprepares for a second and more successful tilt at the country championships in 2017.

Jackson was frothing at the thought of an “in-form and fit” Western side tackling Italy, a team likely to be made up of players with Italian heritage currently playing inthe NSW and Queensland Cups vying for spots in the Azzurri’s squad for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

“It’s an opportunity for a number of players to be looked at, at this level,” Jackson said, he and his selectors naming 14 new faces in the Western fold.

“We’ve named a lot of new faces, and the benefit is most of those guys have been playing in finals footy, if not grand finals for their clubs,” Jackson continued.

“Each competition was close this season, which is great for clubs and the Rams. Hopefully we can unearth some exciting new talent.”

In a show of strength for the Castlereagh Cup competition, four players – Brad James, Kurt Gudgeon, Jeremy Thurston and Jarrah McCready–have been named in Jackson’s squad.

Group 11 skipper Luke Thompson and Nyngan colossus Shane Lalogafau also made the cut, indicating Jackson’s desire to pick a monster pack to take on Italy.

Only one Dubbo player, Macquarie’s hooker Jeremy Smith, was included the side, although Jackson confirmedthe October 15 clash coincides with Dubbo CYMS’ end of season trip.

REPRESENT: Jeremy Smith

The Rams have also named strong under-21 and under-16 sides for the day, with both set to take on the Federation Italian Rugby League Australia sides as curtain raisers to the main event.

Jackson’s side will train at Manildra’s Jack Huxley Ovalon September 24 and October 8.

Summer bushfire dangers

WELL ALIGHT: Fires burn across the hills near Pomonal during the 2006 bushfires. Grampians residents can undertake permit free burn offs in October.Residents in the Northern Grampians Shire have the opportunity to conduct fire fuel reduction burns without a permit from 2pm, October 3 to 11pm October 14.

Although rain has created heavy weather conditions now, the increase in native grass and road side scrub has created heavier fuel for fires during summer.

Council fire prevention officer John Matthews said now was the time for residents to assess the firerisk on their properties.

“Adequately preparing for the fire season is extremely important and helps to reduce the risk of fire inour communities,” he said.

“After the declared period and in accordance with the CFA Act, council will be commencing fireprevention inspections and issuing fire prevention notices to property owners or occupiers whoseproperties constitute a danger to life or property from the threat of fire.

“Owners or occupiers who fail to comply with a fire prevention notice within the specified time will incur afine, currently set at $1555.

“It is vital that the community commences their fire preparation early and maintains the fuel reduction forthe entire fire danger period.”

Mr Matthews said Council was starting its fire preparation activities for the summerseason.

“Vegetation reduction is being carried out on designated strategic fire breaks, roads, and road reservesin order to reduce the risk to life and property,” he said.

District 16 Country Fire Authority operations manager Alfred Mason said the recent rainfall would not curb the risk created by a significant drought period for the region.

“When it comes to grassland and cropping there is a heavier level of fuel to burn,” he said.

“The grass is higher and thicker and we know that will dry off.

“The fire season will come in later than other years, but the potential stock of fuel is significant.

“if we have a hot dry day there will be a fire.”

Despite the potential risk Mr Mason said firefighters said full lakes and dams would put firefighters in a strong position to combat and blazes.

“We are probably better off because we do have water in dams and previously we have not had that,” he said.

“In the past we would had to have huge water tankers on standby.”

Mr Mason said property owners should burn off excess fuel before summer arrived.

“If people have potential fire fuel they should burn them now,” he said.

Mr Matthews said residents can find more information about the permit free burn offat 苏州美甲美睫培训学校ngshire.vic.gov419论坛/fire or by calling council on 5358 8700 or the districtCFA office on 1800 858 116.

RESPONSIBLE: Pet owners will be encouraged to register and microchip their pet dogs and cats for free under a council program backed by state government funding. Picture: Rohan ThomsonLAKE Macquarie pet owners will have access to a free mobile microchipping service in the form of amodified horse floatunder a funding agreement approved this week.

Member for Lake Macquarie Greg Piper said funding from the state government would allowLake Macquarie City Council to proceed with an innovative plan to promote responsible petownership and help those who can least afford it.

The funding will allow the council to modify a council-owned horse float to establish a mobileeducation and microchipping trailer.

The trailer will visit community events and allowresidents in that area to have their animals microchipped for free and register them at thesame time.

“The council will now be able to offer cat and dog owners a free mobile microchipping serviceas well as provide a community education campaign which will target pet health and safety,”Mr Piper said.

The state government introduced the Responsible Pet Ownership Grants scheme in 2014 totarget programs that would increase microchipping, lifetime registration and de-sexing rates.

The grants scheme is also aimed at reducing euthanasia rates and dog attacks throughfunding innovative and collaborative projects which encourage responsible pet ownership.

Mr Piper said the state government scheme was committed to improving the positivebenefits of pet ownership while strengthening safety and education in localneighbourhoods.

Minister for Local Government Paul Toole said a record number of applications had beenreceived from the state’s councils for this year’s grants.

RSPCA NSW chief executive officer Steve Coleman welcomed the funding boost.

“These grants in previous years have worked well to improve the lives of animals and theirresponsible owners,” he said.

“The best part is that the grants allow organisations and individuals to innovate responsiblepet ownership away from traditional methods,” Mr Coleman said.
