Spry came away with the figures of 6-32 off 10.4 overs.

This performance comes off the back of a very consistent start to the year in which Spry has claimed a wicket every time he’s been thrown the ball.

It was Yenda who wanted to set the standard early on anddecided to bat first after having won the toss.

Things got off to a bit of a shaky start with both of Yenda’s openers falling for single digits.

Mick Turnell took the slow and steady approach while Spry came out hitting.

Spry got himself to 21 off 17 balls before he was trapped in front by Justin Winkler.

When Mick Turnell was dismissed for 17 the match was in the balance at 4-59.

Mark O’Connor made sure to push things back in Yenda’s favour.

He along withMatthew Bruce (13) andShaun Stubbs (20) gradually pushed the score past the 100 mark and beyond.

O’Connor was bowled byRoger Andreatta for 45 which left Yenda 6-120 after 40 overs.

Some late runs by captainBrett Hazleman (16) and good hitting byNeil Burke (10 not out off 9) left them at 8-162 when Hazleman declared right after the fall of his wicket.

Winkler was the best of the bowlers, finishing with figures of 3-29 off 11.1.

Exies got their innings off to a flyer.

Winkler knocked them all around the park for a quick-fire 18 off 18 whileDylan Gillette also kept things ticking along with his 26 off 39.

When the pair where dismissed Exies sat at 2-57 after just twelve-and-a-half overs.

This is when Spry was thrown the ball and almost immediately caused trouble.

He took care ofPhil Burge (19) and then got Mark Shepherd next ball for a golden duck.

Not long after Spry gotMark Tucker to knock one back at him for a caught and bowled. This left Exies 5-89.

The tail didn’t last much longer as Spry continued to dominate. Exies finished all out for 127.

Andrew Potter and Brett Hazleman also chimed in with a pair of wickets on the day to help Yenda get just their second win of the season.

The victory puts them in fourth position on the ladder as they leapfrog Exies.

Yenda will look to make it back-to-back wins next week when they take on the resurgentHanwood.

Trio tight at top of A Grade ladder

BRIM-Kellelac-Sheep Hills, Donald and Jeffcott cannot be separated at the top of the Wimmera-Mallee Cricket Association ladder.

TON: Liam Leith, right, scored an impressive century at the weekend. Picture: PAUL CARRACHER

The trio of sides are all log-jammed on 36 points after round eight, which saw Donald move within striking distance and Jeffcott blow its chance of taking poll position.

Donald’s Jake Leith fired 100 not out on Saturday as his side posted 5-172 before bowling out St Arnaud for 62.

Jeffcott could have moved into first alone with a win against St Mary’s at the weekend, and looked to have it on the ropes after bowling it out for 50.

But an equally poor effort in the middle saw Jeffcott make just 44.

Birchip lost just one wicket on its way to 130, chasing down Marnoo’s total of 125.

Wycheproof-Narraport took on Hopetoun, but no results were provided.

Nanjing Night Net

Chairman of the Prison Officers Vocational Branch of the PSA, Steve McMahon said his union had secured undertakings that the types of decisions that sparked Saturday’s 24-hour strike would not happen again without consultation with officers.

The Union has also scored more officers inside the jail and other visible areas to address “poor behaviour” of inmates.

“After protracted discussions, management has agreed to take action and address our concerns,” Mr McMahon said.

“Some of these measures will take time but members have voted to return to work.”

In future, there will be “zero tolerance” of inmates refusing to muster and other “defiant” behaviour.

The union was satisfied with the interim measures until the longer-term issues were thrashed out.

Some 100 members and union representatives met with Corrective Services acting regional director Ian Farquhar at the jail at 8am. Before the meeting, Mr McMahon also had lengthy discussions with assistant Commissioner for Custodial Corrections, Kevin Corcoran.

He said officers were very angry at Sunday’s gathering.

“They take their roles and their safety very seriously, as we all do. Ultimately, these types of decisions undermine their authority and put their safety at risk.”

Shooting fires up former pollie

WARNING: Tim Fischer has called on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to “muscle up” its travel warnings for the United States in the wake of the latest mass shooting there that left more than a dozen people dead.AUSTRALIA’S deputy Prime Minister at the time of the Port Arthur massacre, Tim Fischer, has bemoaned the United States’s gun laws in the wake of the latest mass shooting.
Nanjing Night Net

Mr Fischer, a former Riverina politician,called on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to “muscle up” its travel advice for Australians headed to the US to include warnings about guns.

“You are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the USA per capita than in Australia,” Mr Fischer said.

He made the comment hours after 14 people were shot dead and another 21 wounded in a community centre in San Bernadino, California.

“The DFAT site is good, but it needs to muscle up for travel to the USA,” Mr Fischer said.“I simply make the point Australians should think carefully about their travel to the USA and where they go to within the USA because statistics show there have been 352 gun massacres so far this year involving four or more people.”

Mr Fischer said overseastravel warnings issued by the US Government after last month’s terrorist attacks in Paris had led to delegates cancelling plans to attend conferences in Australia.

“If they have muscled up their travel advice then it’s time we muscled up,” he said.

Mr Fischer was part of the agovernment that cracked down on gun ownership in the wake of the Port Arthur massacre which claimed the lives of 35 people in 1996.

“It was a difficult time,” Mr Fischer said.

“I will defend the rights of farmers and Wagga sporting shooters and Olympic shooters to have guns to use responsibly, but I equally feel the suburbs should be drained of automatic and semi-automatics.”

Riverina resident Diane Mortimer grew up about an hour away from San Bernadino and was shocked to hear of the massacre just a week or so after returning from a trip to the region.

Mrs Mortimer said she thought it a bit harsh to beef up travel warnings for her country of birth but is critical of the US gun laws, describing them as ridiculous.

“President Obama is on the right track and is doing all he can to reduce the number of guns, but the gun lobby is too strong and there is so much ignorance,” Mrs Mortimer said.

“There is nothing he can do and he knows it.

“I feel sad, and also I think, as Obama says, these massacres could be lessened if they had better gun control.”

Despite the grim statistics, Mrs Mortimer still regards the US as a safe place for visitors.

2015 radio graduates all employed

ON AIR: CSU graduate Hannah Mayjor with fellow students and radio presenter Tim Ross (left).The 10th year of the revised radio course at Charles Sturt University (CSU) has been celebrated by 100 per cent of 2015 graduates gaining jobs in the radio and media industries.
Nanjing Night Net

Lecturer and radio discipline group leader in the CSU School of Communication and Creative Industries in Bathurst, David Maxwell said graduates of the Bachelor of Communication (Radio) can be found in diverse roles in the radio industry.

“All of this year’s graduates now have jobs in the radio industry or related media organisations,” Mr Maxwell said. “These students join the more than 100 graduates from the course since it was first established under the sponsorship of Commercial Radio Australia (CRA) in 2000.”

Of the 2015 graduates, Nick Robins has joined Macquarie Media, Sarah Heslop and Gemma Prendergast have joined Nova Entertainment, and Hannah Mayjor has joined Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) Melbourne.

Graduates Frankie White and Tilly Allard have joined the multimedia sections of News Corp.

“A key component of the three-year course is the students’ 10-week internship with CRA members,” Mr Maxwell said.

“During the internship the students not only broaden their industry experience but also demonstrate their learning and ability to contribute from day one.”

Ms Mayjor said CSU’s radio lecturers were not only educators, they were also industry professionals.

“During my final year, it became especially apparent that this point of difference is our strongest asset as Charles Sturt University graduates,” she said.

“We gain not only theory but arguably the more important practical knowledge and connections within the industry that give us an advantage.”

“Every single element of this course was applicable during my internship. I was excited to be an intern, and once the radio station discovered how competent I was, I was given a full-time role. I couldn’t be happier!”

Mr Maxwell said 25 new students will enrol in the course in 2016. Fourteen of these students will come from regional markets through the CSU/Southern Cross Austereo Regional Radio Endorsement Program which is in its second year.
