Running water is Pie in the Sky for Croker

Running water is Pie in the Sky for Croker

Canberra Raiders legend Jason Croker won’t be running water, he’ll be walking it. That’s all his creaking knees will allow him to do for the Pie in the Sky charity game, at the Green Machine’s spiritual home of Seiffert Oval on Friday night.

An All Stars team including Ken Nagas, Alan Tongue, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs and David Barnhill – and coached by Immortal Mal Meninga –  will play Terry Campese’s Queanbeyan Blues to raise money for charities Treehouse and Respite Care for Queanbeyan.

  While his knees won’t let him play after 318 NRL games of damage. Croker will form part of an all-star water carrying crew along with Brett Mullins and Josh Miller.
But the players on the field might need to be patient about getting a drink. “The old knees are not up to it. I’ll be walking the water out, mate, I won’t be running the water,” Croker said.

“It should be a good arvo. I’m looking forward to catching up with some old teammates and it’s for a great cause as well.”

Croker’s 1994 premiership teammate Nagas will be playing,with the former NSW winger happy to play on one condition! There’s a doctor on the sideline.
The 45-year-old has done a “little bit” of training, but was mainly looking forward to catching up and talking about the old days. “Just reliving my youth like the rest of them I think,” Nagas joked.

“I said I don’t mind doing it as long as the doc’s there, as long as the doc and the physio is there, that’s all that matters.

“To get back and see a few of the guys that I haven’t seen for a while and catch up and talk about the good old days, and see where we’re at in regards to whether we’ve still got it.
“Hopefully we don’t snap anything. It’s been a long time since I’ve played a bit of physical contact.” PIE IN THE SKY

Croker, Beissel, Woolford

They’re On Again! Pie in the Sky! Part 3

Meninga, Croker, Clyde, Woolford.

These names represent rugby league and Canberra Raiders royalty and they’re joining forces once more for an all-star game in Queanbeyan this year. Launched, December 2017, the event has been dubbed the “pie in the sky”. It follows on from a match held in Hay in 2011 which brought many of the game’s biggest names together for charity. The match is the brainchild of David Reid Homes managing director Ken Beissel, the event’s major sponsor. Beissel came to Queanbeyan from Hay at age 16 to play for the Queanbeyan Blues where he played with Australian representatives Ian Thomson and David Grimmond. “I played with some of the great footballers of the era and under a great coach in Don Furner,” Beissel said. “What I wanted to do was give the kids an opportunity in my hometown to rub shoulders with some of the greats. Queanbeyan is a second home for me, I just love the place.” With so much of the Raiders history tied to Queanbeyan there are no shortage of club legends lining up to play and be involved.

Coach – Mal Meninga

Mal MeningaMal Meninga will coach the all-star squad. Former captains Simon Woolford and Terry Campese will battle for the armband. Jason Croker won’t be able to suit up due to injuries but has promised to run water. Some of the other names that have confirmed they will play include Bradley Clyde, Ken Nagas, Brett Mullins, Quentin Pongia, Matt Geyer and potentially Nathan Hindmarsh. Former NRL referee Bill Harrigan has confirmed he’ll take the whistle in the 80-minute match against the current Queanbeyan Blues side. Current Raiders coach Ricky Stuart is expected to play if he does not have coaching commitments. However, Raiders fans may wish not to see Stuart with the game scheduled for September 28, just days before the NRL grand final. All proceeds from the match will be split between Treehouse, a special needs support service in Queanbeyan, and a respite centre planned by community campaigners Yvonne Cuschieri and Paul Walshe. Woolford, who played in the Hay match, said despite having moved past their playing days the former players inevitably let their competitive natures take over. Quentin Pongia dislocated his elbow in Hay by not backing out of a tackle. “It’s something the ex-players really enjoy, not only the game but the function afterwards and being able to mix with the local communities,” Woolford said. “There’s plenty of guys that couldn’t say yes quick enough.” Queanbeyan-Palerang councillor Kenrick Winchester said he will endeavour to secure council support for the event and provide Seiffert Oval free of charge. “This is a really exciting event for Queanbeyan,” Cr Winchester said. “We get to support some of our amazing local charities in Treehouse and Paul [Walshe] and Yvonne’s [Cuschieri] respite centre. “I’m as big a Raiders fan you could find, I went out to the game in Hay and it was brilliant seeing the legends run around again. “Queanbeyan is the Raiders home so I know they will get behind the event.” Cr Winchester added the game will hopefully add to the momentum for an upgrade of Seiffert Oval.

2.50PM The winners receive their prizes. In first place, Nathan Elliott was presented with the Jack Griffith Shield, winners jersey and the National Road Series leaders jersey. Raphael Freienstein, in second, was also the King of the Mountain and the Clarence Valley Sprint King. Cameron Scott from the Australian Cycling Academy, who came in third place, was also named the Best Young Rider. APPROX 2.30PM The provisional winners of division two have been calculated, with Dane Murray from the Gold Coast in first, followed by Ben Manson from the University of Newcastle and Tim Hoy from the Gold Coast. APPROX 2.15PM It’s a photo finish! Nathan Elliot from Bennelong SwissWellness came first, just a hair in front of Raphael Freienstein from Inform Make. Inverell’s own Ryan Thomas flew in just a moment after the leaders, in fifth place. 1.17PM The front four are sticking together well as the riders emerge Inverell, about 30 kilometres out of town. 12.40PM The break-away of four has a gap of two minutes to the main chasing group, which is led by Cyrus Monk of Drapac EF Cycling and Michael Potter from the Australian Cycling Academy.
Ben Dyball from St George Continental and individual rider Troy Herfoss from Goulburn are in between the groups, approximately one minute apart from the front. 12.35PM An unknown lone rider is chasing the break-away group, who are fighting a heavy headwind and weather just over one degree. The gap to the main group is around two minutes, 20 seconds, and there’s a chance the field will begin the attack on the climb. Peter Sunderland predicts another hour and a half of racing. With two already under his belt, Raphael Freienstein is in with a good chance of becoming the King of the Mountain if he takes this climb. 12.19PM The chase bunch has shortened the gap to about one minute, 30 seconds. The bulk of the climbing is out of the way, but there’s still a lot left to go. Jesse Featonby, Raphael Freienstein, Nathan Elliott and Timothy Cameron are still in front.
Division three has gone through the Mount Mitchell feed zone and there is a break-away of three riders ahead of the main bunch, including David Bingley of Launceston City, Mark Joseph Jeffrey from Tamworth and Christopher Joustra of Latrobe City. The division one field now has a break-away of four, with a chase group of nine, and another 20 charging to catch up. The field is now split over 10-15 minutes. The first riders are expected to reach Inverell about 1.15pm. 11.20AM The main group in division one is about 30km out of Glen Innes. The peloton split into two up the mountain, but came back together into one group of about 70. The weather is still a factor, at approximately nine degrees, with a lot of debris still on the road. There’s about 97km left in the race. According to Peter Sunderland, it’s still anybody’s race, with good numbers represented from all the teams. Riders are expected to make their major moves after Glen Innes. 11.10AM The group of four up the front have been identified as Jesse Featonby of Drapac EF Cycling Raphael Freienstein of Inform Make NRS, Nathan Elliott of Bennelong SwissWellness and Timothy Cameron of St George Continental. They have a gap of three minutes, 25 seconds to individual Penrith ride Peter Milostic and Rapha Sydney’s Darcy Ellerm-Norton, who are four minutes, 15 seconds to the main chasing group. 10.40AM Division one is 120 km into the 228 km race. There’s a break of four out the front with a 45 second gap, including Bennelong SwissWellness favourite Nathan Elliott. The main chase group has swelled to 30 as a group of 10 rejoins through the main feed zone. 10.30AM The break-away group in division one is now down to 13 riders. Sam Crome, Conor Murtagh, Jack Sutton, Oliver Kent-Spark, Sascha Bondarenko-Edwards, Raphael Freienstein, Julian Thomson, Jake Marryat, Cameron Ivory, Cameron Roberts, Timothy Cameron, Ryan Cavanagh, Oliver Martin and Trevor Spencer are still riding tempo up the hills. 10.00AM Division three are climbing the range, getting ready for the cold winds. 9.50AM The gap to the break-away group temporarily stretched out to over six minutes, but is now down to around three minutes. Most teams have riders in the group, with the peloton chasing hard. The chilly weather and winds will be a challenge as the main group heads up the Gibraltar Range, with debris on the road. There’s about seven kilometres left on the climb. 9.10AM The results are in for the Des Femmes sprint, with Anna Beck from the University of Queensland coming in first, with Jessica Pratt from Balmoral in second and Megan Scott from Giant, Sydney in third. In division three, the sprint winner is Latrobe City’s Christopher Joustra, followed by Scott Walcot from Coffs Harbour and Erron Hennessy of Murwillumbah. 8.45AM The break away group is 17 riders strong, and have managed to create a four minute gap from the main peloton. Division three are about 125km from Glen Innes, with two race leaders approaching a one minute lead. In the division two sprint, Cameron Judson of Harlequin came in first, followed by David Evans of Manly Warringah and Stuart Grieve of Northern Sydney.


A bunch of 14-18 riders lead the pack by approximately 40 seconds about 25km in, including team members of Olivers Racing, GPM Stulz, Drapac EF Cycling, Bennelong Swiss Wellness, the Australian Cycling Academy, AMR Renault and solo entrant Dan Bonello. Oliver Kent Spark, Sam Crome, Ryan Cavanagh, Cam Ivory, and Jack Sutton are thought to be in the front bunch.


There are 102 riders taking on the race in division two. They are sticking together early in the race, and preparing for the weather changes ahead, according to Rick Adams. Locals will be keeping an eye out for Inverell riders Alwyn Miller, Jason Sprang and Zak Sunderland. Two leaders, David Randall of Van dam Racing and William Barker Phoenix Cycling Collective have made a break for it in division 1. They have a 30 second lead but seem unlikely to hold it on. It’s 15 kilometres into the race, not far from the Cattle Creek climb, which could begin to split the peloton. The division three riders, including 30 women and 30 in the challenge, non-competitive category have taken off. 7.19AM …And they’re off! With record numbers in all three divisions, the first division sets off on the toughest one day cycle race in Australia. Inverell cycling fans will keep their fingers crossed for locals Ryan Thomas and Chris Hamilton. 6.45AM The first names are going up as teams prepare for one of the toughest Grafton to Inverell Cycle Classics in recent years. With headwinds of up to 45 kilometres an hour predicted for after the peak of the Gibraltar Range local and former Grafton to Inverell rider Peter Sunderland expects the race will stretch to six and a half hours this year. A broad smile on his face, local A Grade rider Ryan Thomas admitted the cold weather had come as “a bit of a shock” for many. Although he’d been unwell and unable to train hard in the past week, Thomas felt it could give him an advantage. “I usually race well on fresh legs,” he told the Grafton to Inverell committee. Nathan Elliott from Bennelong Swiss Wellness, who as a dual Melbourne to Warrnambool winner, is in the running for the top spot, said the headwind predictions should make the race “interesting”. “It’ll definitely make the race harder, but whether it splits (riders) up a bit, it’s hard to tell,” he said. National under 23 road race champion Cyrus Monk said he was feeling well, and said he was surprised by his recent success in Europe. The 2016 Grafton to Inverell winner Pat Lane said he’d love to win another one. With the headwinds, he said it would be really important to “ride a bit smarter a race”.

David Reid Homes – Custom Home Builders Brisbane bring you so much more…
When we set to writing about custom home builders Brisbane, we considered the needs of folks building their second or third or even fourth homes. First home builders often aren’t looking for custom home builders in Brisbane or custom home builders in Australia for that matter. This is because people who build custom homes are often looking at investing at a higher level into their new home building project. That doesn’t mean that first home buyers can’t enjoy the benefits of a custom home design and build. Let’s break that down a bit to see how it fits:

So, What is a Custom Home?

According to Wikipedia, a custom home is defined as:

“…a one-of-a-kind house that is designed for a specific client and for a particular location. The custom home builder may use plans created by an architect or by a professional home designer. Custom homes afford consumers the opportunity to control layout, lot size, and accessibility. In most cases, custom home builders construct on land the home buyer already owns. Some developers sell fully serviced lots specifically for the construction of custom homes. This makes it easy to build a custom home since the lot is construction-ready and builders can focus purely on the design of the home.” Attribution to wiki

Wikipedia goes on to define Custom Home Builders:

“Custom home builders

  • Build unique houses. A custom home is a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for the wishes of a specific client.
  • Some custom builders may offer design/build services.
  • Build single-family homes.
  • Are generally small-volume builders.
  • Tend to build high-end homes.” Attribution to wiki

Custom Home Builder Brisbane for First Home Buyers

None of these points preclude an affordable first home from being a custom home. “A custom home is a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for the wishes of a specific client” Within your budget, we can build a unique home that is custom designed and built for your needs, your view and location. So you don’t have to have a “cookie cutter” box because you are a first home buyer. Of course, there’s often the option to build a more modest but still custom designed and built home for you and allowing for extensions up and out at a later date as your circumstances allow.

DAVID REID HOMES ALL STARS – A true great – Laurie Daley – By Peter (Parra) Montgomery

david reid homes all stars Laurie Daley“When one of the All time greats of Rugby League puts his hands up to come out and promote the game of Rugby League, you know you have a very special occasion on your hands. Laurie Daley took about five minutes to agree to play in the David Reid All Stars game – and that was five minutes to check his diary to see if the date fitted into his busy schedule. AND what a busy schedule Lozza has on his plate. He is coach of the Indigenous team to take on the NRL Allstars team, coach of the Country Origin team, he is commentator with NRL on Fox, as well as being involved in the print media, penning columns for the Rugby League “Big League” Program….” So….
