Nationals Member for Western Victoria, David O’Brien has offered support to secure funding for the push towards the establishment of a ‘dark matter’ laboratory at Stawell Gold Mine.

Nationals Member for Western Victoria, David O’Brien, supports the proposal to establish a dark matter laboratory in Stawell.

Mr O’Brien announced that he would support the application put forward by the Northern Grampians Shire Council for funding.

“I believe this is a rare opportunity for regional Victoria in terms of being at the forefront of scientific research,” Mr O’Brien said.

“While currently at the early stages, the particle laboratory considered for Stawell would be the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

“Northern Grampians Shire Council have delivered their case to the state government and it will be considered along with a number of other funding priorities.

“The advantages of this proposal are that it can co-exist with current mining operations and that it would attract up to 15 science-based jobs in the first twelve months.

“The Stawell site has the capacity to be developed into a substantial international research laboratory, well supported by existing infrastructure such as industrial capacity natural gas and fibre optic cables.

“Research has already identified that the site has the appropriate depth, geological feature and vehicle access.

“I will be supporting this project within state government because I believe it is a potential winner for Stawell.”

‘Dark matter’ is a type of matter believed to account for a large part of the mass making up the universe. While scientists know that dark matter exists and makes up part of the universe, they still don’t know what it is made up of. A research facility in Australia would compliment an already existing facility in Italy.

Work is already underway on more precise testing to further the case for Stawell.

The chargers have been linked to the death of a woman.A mobile phone business faces prosecution over the death of a woman electrocuted by a faulty USB phone charger at her home on the NSW central coast.

Mother-of-two Sheryl Anne Aldeguer was found dead while wearing headphones inside an East Gosford home with burns on her ears and chest after a faulty charger sent a high voltage through her body, according to Fair Trading NSW.

A Filipino national, Ms Aldeguerwas found dead by friends on April 23.

It is believed a dodgy $4.95 phone charger sent a high-voltage electrical pulse into her phone, which transferred to the earphones she had connected to a laptop.

The 28-year-old, from the Philippines, was to start work as a theatre nurse at Gosford Hospital within days of her death.

She had spent six months in Melbourne converting her nursing training to Australian standards andshe had hoped her young family would join her within months.

Fair Trading NSW’s Lynelle Collins said Ms Aldeguer, who was in Australia on a working visa, was talking on the phone which was plugged into a wall socket at the time.

“The voltage seems to travel up through the faulty charger into her phone and she was wearing earplugs and also operating a laptop which was also plugged into a power point,” Ms Collins said.

“So the (electricity) travelled back down through the earphones to the laptop and into the power point,” she said.

“Two-hundred-and-forty volts (then) travelled up into the phone which obviously the phone isn’t designed to handle.

“Bodies are very good conductors of electricity so it’s travelled through her body.”

Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe said the owners of the Campsie business which sold her the non-complaint charger could face fines of up to $875,000 and a two-year custodial sentence.

More of the chargers seized from the stall in Campsie.

“We will ceratinly be further investigating an outlet which we have detected have supplied theses types of non-complaint articles (chargers) with a view to prosecution,” Mr Stowe said.

The registered business had a shopfront and a stall out the front – both of which were shut down – and hundreds of dodgy and non-complaint USB chargers were seized.

Friends of the deceased woman told police they believed she had bought the charger from the mobile accessory outlet in Sydney, prompting Fair Trading officers to raid the business last week.

“All the products have been removed. We went out there as soon as possible when we were notified,” Ms Collins said.

Fair Trading NSW said it had been at least five years since a death involving a faulty electrical item.

Mr Stowe said a number of USB-style chargers, travel adaptors and power boards that did not meet Australian safety standards had been removed from sale at a mobile phone accessory stall.

He said authorities were not aware until now of the large number of the cheap chargers that were available for sale in NSW.

“This is the first time we’ve been aware of them in large numbers,” he said.

While this was so far the only known fatality potentially associated with the devices, Mr Stowe was concerned that the public be informed as soon as possible to avoid further deaths.

“We’re only familiar with this one incident and it does look like one of these devices are implicated in the electrocution,” he said.

TheWestern Sydney Wanderers have boosted their defence by signing21-year-old defender Brendan Hamill to a one year contract.

Following two years with K-League outfit Seongnam Ilhwa, Hamilljoins the Wanderers for the remainder of the 2014 AFC Champions League campaign and the Hyundai A-League 2014/15 season.

Born and raised in Chipping Norton, Hamill rose through the ranks of local teams Chipping Norton FC,Marconi and ParramattaEagles before completing his apprenticeship in the NSW and Australian Institute of Sport programs.

At 21 Hamill has already had four seasons of professional football under his belt including 35 games in the Hyundai A-League with former club Melbourne City (Heart 2010-12) prior to spending two seasons in the K-League with Seongnam Ilhwa and Gangwon FC (loan).

“Brendan ticks a lot of boxes for us; he’s young, ambitious, from Western Sydney and can play across the backline,” said Wanderers chief executive officer John Tsatsimas.

“We’ve seen previously that he can perform in the A-League and followingtwo seasons in Asiahe will have matured as a player and as a man.”

A sturdy defender known for his fine positioning and commanding strength on and off the ball, Hamill will add to the Wanderers defensive stocks for the heavy 2014/15 schedule.

“As a local western Sydney boy it means a lot to me to come back and play for the Wanderers, I grew up playing for a lot of the local sides in western Sydney and to see how big the club is especially now with their incredible fans,it is amazing to see thesuccess the club has had, which is massive, and hopefullywe can continue that,” said Hamill.

“I am looking forward to learning from Tony Popovic and the coaching staff here.

“Tony has played for the national team and over in England, he plays the same position as me so I am excited to learn as much as possible from him and be the best player I can be.”

A State Government-appointed panel will begin hearing submissions on the proposal to mine Big Hill at Stawell on Wednesday.

Panel hearings on the proposal to open cut mine Big Hill will commence next Wednesday.

About 44 people have asked to be heard by the panel. They, along with relevant State Government departments, the Environment Protection Authority and the project proponents Crocodile Gold (the owner of Stawell Gold Mine), will make submissions to the panel over about 11 days.

The hearing will start at10amon Wednesday, July 2, in the Federation University Building,SloaneStreet, Stawell.

When assessing the feasibility of operating two open-cut mines on Big Hill over a five-year period combined with the planned rehabilitation of the area in conjunction with the Stawell community, the panel will consider the applications made at the hearing, the 350 written submissions made in response to the Environmental Effects Statement completed on the project, the proponent’s submissions and any experts on whom it wishes to call. The hearing will incorporate site visits.

Headed by chairperson Jennifer Moles, the four-person Inquiry Panel held a directions hearing at Stawell early this month to establish procedures for the panel hearing.

Stawell Gold Mine General Manager Troy Cole this week welcomed the imminent start to the panel hearing and encouraged any interested parties to attend.

“This hearing is open to the public and we would encourage anyone interested in the Big Hill Enhanced Development Project to come along and learn first hand how the project will operate, how it will benefit Stawell and how the community can be involved with the rehabilitation of Big Hill.

“This hearing will cover all aspects of the proposal, from noise, blasting, rehabilitation, economics and social impacts to air quality assessment and peer review, public health effects and real time air emissions monitoring and response.

“Anything anyone wants to know about the proposal will be addressed over the 11 or so days,” Mr Cole said.

“Once the hearings are complete, the panel will take a number of weeks to report to the Minister for Planning who will make a decision on the proposal.”

Stawell Gold Mines announced plans in January last year, to investigate the feasibility of extending its mining operations into the Big Hill area. The company lodged an Environment Effects Statement (EES) Referral with the Victorian Government for the Big Hill site, to determine the approvals process it would need to follow if it pursues the project.

It was then announced in May by Planning Minister Matthew Guy, that an Environment Effects Statement would be required for the project.

Stawell Gold Mines has since stepped up consultation on the project, keeping the community informed as it awaited the release of theEESdocuments in March this year.

The next step in the process was to accept submissions on theEESin preparation for the commencement of the directions hearing and now panel hearing starting on Tuesday.

Mr Cole said the Big Hill Enhanced Development Project would:

● Create 80 to 100 jobs.

● Be a four tofiveyear project, including the rehabilitation program.

● Consist of two open pits – the north pit and the south pit. The north pit will be mined first and rehabilitation will follow soon after.

● Retain and protect significant heritage sites and reinstate removed historical memorials.

● Produce 2.3 million tonnes of ore.

● Commit to minimising the noise, dust and blasting effects based on the recommendations of the respective technical impact assessments once completed.

● Commence rehabilitation late in year two that includes completely filling the open pits and reinstating Big Hill with native vegetation.

● Develop a rehabilitation program that will improve amenity to surrounding properties as the open space created will attract visitors and residents.

Mr Cole reiterated Stawell Gold Mine’s desire to work with the Stawell community on this project.

“This project is mutually beneficial to Stawell and our company – it will create employment, bring people to the area and lead to the rehabilitation of Big Hill itself,” he said.

Praise for fire response

July 1st, 2018

Nationals Member for Western Victoria Region, David O’Brien has recognised and thanked Victoria’s emergency services personnel in the Grampians region for their efforts in responding to the 2013-14 fires.

Fire crews have been praised for their work during the Grampians and Black Range bushfires.

Speaking at a thank-you barbecue in Halls Gap, Mr O’Brien said the Victorian Coalition Government was proud to support the vital work of emergency workers and volunteers who protect Victoria.

“The 2013-14 summer bushfires posed a serious challenge to regional Victoria, with the worst fire conditions since Black Saturday,” Mr O’Brien said.

“Emergency services personnel as well as all the supporting departments and agencies here in the Grampians region demonstrated a magnificent degree of effort and commitment to keep our communities safe over summer, and we thank them for their efforts.”

The family barbecue was one of several events held across Victoria to recognise emergency services personnel for their contribution to the community.

During the 2013-14 fire season there were major fires across the state including the Grampians, the Big Desert Wilderness Park, East Gippsland and at Morwell.

A total of 4,600 bush and grass fires burned more than 463,000 hectares of land across Victoria. Eighty residences were destroyed by fire across the state.

“The emergency management response to the fires this season was the most co-ordinated approach we have seen, using an all-hazards, all-agencies response,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The Grampians experienced some of the most significant fires of the summer.

“The Grampians Northern Complex fire burnt 55,100 hectares and went for 62 days causing the loss of 32 residences and more than 4,000 head of stock.

“It was a devastating fire, and I recognise and thank everyone involved in the response. You all did a terrific job in difficult circumstances.”

Mr O’Brien said firefighters and people from supporting agencies from the Grampians region also travelled to other regions to provide support, including Morwell to assist with the Hazelwood mine fire.

Five months after fire devastated large swathes of the Grampians National Park, nature has come full circle.

Bert Sprague is pictured enjoying the snow on top of Mount William in the Grampians.

Predictions of snowfalls down to 700 metres in Victoria early on Tuesday meant it was always a possibility at the highest parts of the Grampians.

And snow there was.

By 9.30am, rain and slightly warmer weather had melted most snow at Mt William, which at 1167m, is the highest peak in the Grampians.

However, there was still plenty of snow around. Hidden in gullies, sheltered under logs and anywhere protected from the driving rain of Tuesday morning.

A few cars arrived shortly after, as sightseers set-off for the final climb to the summit, not satisfied with the small patches of snow in the car park.

They were there to see more than just snow.

They were there to witness the true wonder and rugged beauty of these hills, the very last vestige of the Great Dividing Range.

Cascading waterfalls poured from just about every slope as the night’s rain – and perhaps some melting snow – was washed away down some incredible rock formations.

The morning sun peaked out from behind dark stormy clouds at one point, creating a sparkle across the amazing landscape.

The noise in the tree tops from the ferocious wind was deafening and the rain, sleet and light snowfalls made life less than comfortable.

For those who decided to push up the hill on foot, there was no question.

“Mate, you’ve just got to have a look,” one sightseer said.

It’s this attitude and the pride people living nearby have for the Grampians that attracts so many back to this part of the world.

Nature has come full circle. It has soothed the Grampians’ January burns with an icy remedy.

Snow has replaced fire – and the Grampians are better than ever.

Nick Kyrgios is in new grand slam territory, having earned his place in the Wimbledon third round in extraordinary circumstances. It was easily the biggest career win for the Australian teenager, although there was nothing easy about it, Kyrgios forced to recover from a two-set deficit against 13th seed Richard Gasquet and to save nine match points.

The first three came at 4-5 in the fifth set, and the others in the next three service games, one of them salvaged by a Hawk-eye challenge on what had been called a double-fault. But whenever elimination threatened, the 19-year-old found a way to survive it, finally breaking serve himself in the 17th game and serving out the match 3-6, 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 7-5, 10-8 in just under four hours to earn a standing ovation on a packed court two.

Kyrgios has won a round in three of his five main draw grand slam appearances, but never – until this time – more than one. The youngest player in the men’s draw was the second-last Australian; as Lleyton Hewitt prepares to depart, he is arriving. And just might have. Just now.

The highest-ranked player Kyrgios had previously beaten was No.51 Radek Stepanek on debut in a major at Roland Garros last year. Gasquet has been as high as seventh, and is still among the game’s elite. The Frenchman served exceptionally for most of the match, but was able to convert just two of his 16 break point chances, slightly tentative at some key moments, but repelled again and again.

“It’s definitely the biggest win of my career so far,” said Kyrgios, who will now play Czech wildcard Jiri Vesely, a five-set winner over Gael Monfils. Next could be world No.1 Rafael Nadal a four-set winner against his 2012 conqueror Lukas Rosol on centre court.

“I’m stoked and I’m just happy to get through again. Well done to Richard, as well. It was an unbelievable match.”

But one that started almost unremarkably. The Kyrgios way is to hit out boldly, and so he did against Gasquet, whose defence was so outstanding that it prompted a slightly nervous Kyrgios to go for even more. Then again, Kyrgios was not going to win an attritional baseline war with the experienced Frenchman, who was winning grasscourt titles when Kyrgios was a primary school student back in Canberra, shooting hoops at least as often as he was hitting tennis balls.

Kyrgios was regularly pulled out of position by the Gasquet groundstrokes, and at 2-5 in the first set called for a trainer to treat and remove the kinesiotape from his left knee. He is an explosive athlete, but still a maturing one, and Gasquet had him well covered, in most respects.

The foundation of the Kyrgios game is his serve, but while that proved to be shaky at times, the world No.144 could make no early impression on Gasquet’s, his first break point taking more than one hour to arrive. The pair’s only previous match had been on clay in February’s Davis Cup tie, when the first set went to a tiebreak, before Gasquet dominated the next two.

This time, Kyrgios lost the first seven points, and then his opening service game on a double fault as he attempted a brave/ambitious second serve. The next break came in the third game of the second set when a backhand volley sailed long and Kyrgios belted a ball out of the stands in disgust, earning a code violation warning  from chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani.

But from 3-5 down, Kyrgios won consecutive games for the first time, breaking back for 5-5 with the help of a Gasquet double-fault at deuce. At this early stage of his tour-level career, he had already compiled an impressive 9-5 record in tiebreaks  – three of them coming in his grand slam debut 13 months ago at Roland Garros against Radek Stepanek – but he always trailed in this one, Gasquet showcasing all his skills on both attack and defence.

Still, the match had tightened up, and Kyrgios got his reward by taking the third in 36 minutes, his 17th and last winner a nice wrong-footing forehand down the line. The former world No.1 junior has touch as well as power, drop-shotting handily at times, using deft angles at others.

The other factor is his body, which has already proved to be worryingly injury-prone, an elbow issue responsible for his most recent two-month stretch on the sidelines. Cramps cost Kyrgios dearly at the Australian Open, when he had led another Frenchman, Benoit Paire, by two sets to love. On a different surface and in far different circumstances fitness was not an issue this time.

He was two points from defeat at 4-5 in the fourth set, before an unexpected break in the 11th game, then saved two break-back points to force a fifth set. There, the drama continued, was magnified exponentially, with Kyrgios under extreme pressure on serve, yet somehow holding on.

Despite the rankings and results disparity, the teen had been given some chance going into the match, the theory being that Gasquet had trailed another, lesser, Australian  – James Duckworth – by two-sets-to-one before winning in five in the opening round. And given that  Kyrgios is an emerging superstar, and had just won a Challenger title on grass then, well, game on.

And, as it turned out, on, and on. “I came up with some clutch serving, that’s my main weapon, it’s what got me here,” said Kyrgios. Count on him staying. A towering talent is now something more.

Nick Kyrgios is a potential grand slam champion headed for the world’s top five, according to Richard Gasquet, the man across the net from the young Australian who enthralled Wimbledon with his astonishing second round win on Thursday.

But No.5? No higher?

“My goal is to become the No. 1 player in the world,” declared Kyrgios, the confident teenager from Canberra, after recovering from a two-sets-to-love deficit for the first time in his career, and then saving nine match points in the decider.

“In the future he can be top five, he can win a grand slam of course,” said 13th-seeded Gasquet, after duelling for almost four hours, only to lose 10-8 in the fifth set. “Now he is still young, a lot of things can happen – injures, many things can happen. He’s 19 years old and anything can happen, so don’t put too much pressure on him.”

Pressure, he can handle. Attention? That’s fine, too. The bigger the occasion, the better he likes it – or so it seems so far. Kyrgios is an extrovert whose bold tennis is a reflection of his personality. But his game, we knew about that. The development, perhaps, was that the demonstration of his mental strength, and signs of some more physical resilience, as well.

“It was an unbelievable match out there,” Kyrgios said. “My first ever two-sets-to-love down, coming back and winning, it’s an amazing feeling…  At that stage it seemed like a massive hill to climb. I stuck in there. I just fought and I gave myself the opportunity to win the match.

“I think it’s a massive stepping-stone for me to finally reach the third round of a grand slam.  Especially to come back from two sets to love down, it can be a building bridge for more things to come. It is my biggest career win, I think. So I’m going to take a lot of confidence out of me moving forward.”

That is already in good supply, even if Kyrgios started a little nervously against Gasquet, in what was just his eighth main draw grand slam match, and played far from his best tennis in the opening two sets.

“The way that he hung in there impressed me the most, because he’s sort-of gone away a little bit (previously),” said Australian Davis Cup coach Josh Eagle.

“At (the) Aussie Open he was fatigued against Benoit Paire, at the French Open he battled a bit against (Milos) Raonic when he was down two sets to love. “But today to dig the heels in, that was the most impressive thing for me, and maybe there was a bit of luck there in the end saving nine match points, but that’s got to give him a hell of a lot of belief.”

Indeed, not even his coach, Simon Rea, believed unreservedly as the match points flowed in four successive service games at the sudden-death stage of the tense fifth set.

“His belief in himself never really surprises me – I guess I’ve got a front row seat to witness that on occasion,” said Rea. “But for two sets he looked to me like he was all at sea, and certainly once he did start to settle in the third, it’s a long road back from that point, and having never been in that situation before, where he’s managed to pull himself out of that hole, I guess until you see it done, sure there’s an element of surprise there.

“And the other (surprising) thing was deep in the fifth, for me it looked like, without wanting to say it to (strength and conditioning guru) Aaron Kellett, who was sitting next to me, ‘gee, it, really looks like there can only be one winner here, and it didn’t look like it was gonna be our guy’. And he found a way. He just found a way.”

Former grand slam semi-finalist, now commentator, Wally Masur, said the “rare ability” of the former world No.1 junior has long been obvious. But this was something more. “Whether you’ve got rare ability or not, I don’t quite know how you save nine match points,” Masur said. “I think that was the amazing thing about that match.

“Gasquet felt tension, he felt pressure, and he played some of those match points very tentatively. It just shows that if you let Nick play, if you allow him to play, he’s got all sorts of game and that’s what happened.”

Everywhere, the events on court two were being hailed as “career-defining”. Former star Paul McNamee declared: “It’s a big breakthrough. At arguably the best place to break through. Terrific. The nine match points is overshadowing the two-sets-to-love down, which is really remarkable for someone of that age. It’s an exciting day. And it just gives Australian tennis a great lift.”

Eventually, it was Gasquet who cracked under the weight of so many lost opportunities.

“When the moment’s there he knows how to take it,” Todd Woodbridge said of Kyrgios, while the performance was also hailed by Pat Cash, the 1987 Wimbledon singles champion and junior Davis Cup captain of a young player he continues to occasionally help mentor.

“I said to my mates this morning ‘watch out for this guy if you like a little bet,’ and up two sets to love I felt really guilty, but then he came back, and that’s a terrific performance,” said Cash. “And the way he saved the match points, too. He wasn’t playing safe.

“It’s not necessarily about how you hit the ball, they all hit the ball well. But Nick’s shown the players that he’s tough mentally, so that’s a huge step, It’s not just the shot-making. It’s a big win, a big scalp, and all the players are talking about it.”

ACT Brumbies players believe Laurie Fisher’s decision to quit the club to coach in Britain will have a bigger impact than the shock departure of former World Cup-winning coach Jake White.

Fisher is set to leave Canberra one year into his two-year contract as the Brumbies’ director of rugby to become Gloucester’s head coach at the end of the Super Rugby season.

But Fisher’s coaching partner Stephen Larkham has emerged as the man to take on more responsibility next year in a traditional head coaching role at the Brumbies.

It’s understood the Brumbies have already set up a committee to decide the club’s next coaching structure, with Larkham the candidate to be appointed on a longer-term deal as the leader of a more traditional coaching set up.

Larkham and Fisher have shared the coaching role this season, with Larkham leading a successful retention campaign, re-signing a host of Wallabies and is set to lead the team into the future.

Fisher’s exit is a massive blow for the Brumbies on the eve of the biggest match of their Super Rugby campaign against the NSW Waratahs.

While White was the face of the Brumbies’ revival in 2012-13, Fisher and Larkham were driving the on-field revival behind the scenes.

Players including a trio of Wallabies captains – Ben Mowen, David Pocock and Stephen Moore – rate Fisher as one of the world’s best forwards coaches and his influence has been a major factor in the team’s success.

Mowen said the players wanted to end their season to reward Fisher’s work.

“It’s the space we live in, it’s musical chairs and you’ve got to grab one when it’s available,” said Mowen, who will leave the Brumbies for France after the Super Rugby season.

“It’s disappointing because the impact [Fisher] has had on the playing group has been massive and he’s been here 11 years now.

“He very much is Canberra rugby. He’s Brumbies rugby. He’s not called ‘The Lord’ for nothing. We’re just extremely thankful for everything he’s done and we’ve got to make sure we get him a result to say that thanks.”

Fisher met with Brumbies chairman Sean Hammond earlier this week and the Brumbies players were informed of his decision at a team meeting on Friday.

But the Brumbies and Fisher are yet to publicly confirm the veteran coach’s departure, given Fisher did not want it to distract from the crucial match against the Waratahs.

Players privately expressed shock at Fisher’s decision and said his influence was just as great as White’s in the past three years.

Fisher has coached in Europe before. He was Brumbies head coach from 2005-08 before moving to Ireland, returning as an assistant to White in 2012.

“I’m not in a position to confirm or deny, nothing has been signed or agreed to,” Fisher said. “At this stage it’s speculation, the issue for us is about getting a win on Saturday night.

“There are lots of things that can disrupt preparation, but you have to be bigger and better than that. We’ve built a lot over the last three years and it’s time to dig deep and show what we’re really made of.”

Larkham has led a successful recruitment campaign, re-signing six Wallabies and Test player in waiting Henry Speight in the past two months.

Fisher and Larkham both signed two-year deals to be a coaching tag team after White quit halfway through a four-year deal. But Fisher has always expressed a desire to return the Europe.

Fisher’s decision to leave adds to a turbulent 12 months in which the club lost White and chief executive Andrew Fagan and moved its club headquarters from Griffith to the University of Canberra.

Mowen and Fisher backed Larkham to take charge of the Brumbies’ program.

“[Larkham] has made great progress and handled himself well … that’s a decision other people will make but I’m sure whatever they decide will be appropriate,” Fisher said.

“There has been a lot of disruption this year and I think we’ve got through that.”

Mowen said the strength of the Brumbies’ rugby program would ensure the team continued its success.

“The Brumbies aren’t reliant on one bloke in the team or one coach … that’s the beauty of it,” Mowen said.

“It definitely will be a massive loss, the way we play the game is built around our breakdown work and that’s thanks to Laurie,” Mowen said.

“I think what Bernie’s done this year isn’t unexpected from the players. What we’ve done this year is off the back of his experience. He’ll take the next step now and the side will keep moving forward.”

TheParramatta Eels have re-signedfive-eighth Ryan Mattersonfor an additional three seasons.

The deal will see the 19-year-old under 20s captain stay with the club until at least the end of the 2017 season.

“One of our club’s key strategic aims is to retaintop talent and to build the best junior pathway in the NRL,” said Eels chief executive Scott Seward.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates that commitment because we have seen Ryan successfully progress through our development program over the past few years, and securing him on a long-term deal is a great boost for the club.”

In 2014, Matterson was selected into the NSW Blues under 20s side, and has also played in several NSW Cup games for the Eels’ feeder club, the Wentworthville Magpies.

“It means the world to stay here; I’ve always grown up around the Parramatta area and seen the players out and about, and they’ve given me an aspiration to follow in their footsteps,” Matterson said.

“Brad [Arthur]’s a really good coach, he brings out the best in everyone and there’s a really positive vibe around the club, and that’s what I’m looking forward to for the next three years.”
