the saviour of the sharks. He told

everyone he was terminally ill and

wanted to donate his life insurance wanted to donate his life insurance

But he is in police custody as

police investigate whether or not

that pay-out may have been the that pay-out may have been the

result of a scam. He was taken into

custody at a Cronulla hotel. As he

left this afternoon, while he was

meeting with the board of directors

to Cronulla, he wanted to Cronulla, he wanted to chat to

him about the payment he made to

Tony Zappia's bank account. That

money was apparently going to the

Cronulla Sharks. But police say

that they have spoken to this man's

doctors in his hometown and they

have spoken to the doctors and they

believe they have not treated this

man for any life-threatening

condition and the pay-out may have

been a result of an insurance been a result of an insurance scam.

Police have raided his home. They

have seized documents, but also

taken away a whole lot of Cronulla

Tony Zappia arrived here at the

club a short time ago. The board of

tonight. A club spokesman said,

what happened today will not change what happened today will not change

their investigation into Tony

Zappia and the club members and

board members were not told.

Thank you four. Record debt, record Thank you four. Record debt, record

State Budget has been labelled a

beacon of hope by the treasurer but

has also brought grim news on

soaring unemployment with revenue

plunging by $10 billion.

A but there is hope for the A but there is hope for the ailing

housing industry. Stamp duty for

new homes will be cut by half for

six months. This is really the last

piece in the Budget puzzle.

That is right. Much of it had been

leaked in today's revelation about

the stamp duty cut. That was the

last piece of the puzzle. The

budget has been budget has been delivered by

Treasurer Eric Roozendaal, his Treasurer Eric Roozendaal, his

DOCS admits it should have done

more to help stop a 12-year-old

girl from falling pregnant to her

live-in boyfriend. But Department

officials admit they cannot officials admit they cannot

guarantee it will not happen again.

A 12-year-old girl has been badly

let down by the Department of

community services and will give

birth to her first child in a few

months. When she was 11, her father

became concerned when he learnt his

ex-wife was allowing his daughter's

boyfriend to move into the family

home and share his daughter's bed.

He immediately made He immediately made contact with

DOCS but his pleas for help fell on

deaf ears. In hindsight, further

investigation should have been done

and more should have been done for

his family. He called police for

help but was told because of both

children were under the age of

consent, they could not investigate

unless his daughter made an

allegation of sexual assault. He

pleaded with DOCS to intervene but

it was too late. By the time he it was too late. By the time he

took custody of his daughter in

March, she had fallen pregnant. The

NSW State Government set aside a

further $290 million for DOCS but

the state opposition believes no

amount of money can fix the

cultural problems within the

department. Where was DOCS a sense

about community values about a part

of that age sleeping and living,

sexually, with another

sexually, with another child of the

same age? DOCS. In and help the

girl as she prepares to give birth.

gangland. She was one of three

people arrested. What is taking place now?

As far as we know, all three

suspects remain at the St Kilda

Road complex behind us. Judy Moran,

a 64-year-old woman, was one of

those taken into custody. There was a

a 43-year-old man police suspect of

being one of the gunmen in the

murder of Des Moran. There is a 45-

year-old woman who is suspected of

being an accessory to murder. They

have not been officially charged

but police have told us that they

are expected to be charged before the night is out.

Are they expected to face a court hearing tonight? Initially police Initially police thought they would

be transferred to court this

afternoon but the process of

questioning has taken longer than

they thought. At this late hour, we

do not believe they will go to

court. There may be a special out

of sessions hearing at the St Kilda

Road complex, but police are yet to confirm that.

Harry Kewell sitting out the game,

a crowd of 80,000 is expected. The

Sydney Swans have announced plans

with two former players who were

certain to be inducted in the hall

of fame. That is the difficulty.

When you are selecting a side or a

hall of fame, had you put good

players from different eras against

other blokes? The game has sir

changer hate even since I was

playing. In recognition of the

South Melbourne history of the

dinner will be in Melbourne on the

18th. Master chef for Australia is

entering the final weeks and one of

the leading chances to win his

Lucas Parsons. He has moved on from

a high profile professional golfing

career to chase a career in the

food industry. It was not that long

ago that Lucas Parsons was one of ago that Lucas Parsons was one ago that Lucas Parsons was one of the countries best young golfers.

He spent more than a decade on the

European tour and one a Greg Norman

International and even built --

beaten up and coming Tiger Woods.

But these days the clubs collect

more dust than divots. He has

opened a restaurant next to his mother's bookstore. He is a mother's bookstore. He is a nurturer and likes to feed people nurturer and likes to feed people

and look after them. But five weeks

after the birth of the business

there was a new twist. It is good

to be here. With one spicy serving

of chilli crab. For me, it is yes. of chilli crab. For me, it is yes.

Lucas Parsons was in the running to

become the countries first master

chef. It is huge. When icy someone

and only has a little bit of talent

with food and that will grow that

he has served natural generosity of

spirit and you would want to go to

his that restaurant. Professional

golfer and master chef seems poles

apart but that is how the chain

began - travelling the world and

absorbing the cuisine. He went head

to head it with an internationally

renowned chef. I gave your dish and

8th. Hey one, catapulting him into

the final. I was never really one-

dimensional. I intend to create dimensional. I intend to create

shots. I saw shots and took them on

and try to be creative in a way and

cooking is like that. The challenge

now is to convert golf-course flare

into dining perfection. This is a

massive learning curve but I think

he can. What a great story. You can

see more on our Lucas Parsons on

sports tonight. And we will hear

from Dino lately on why he has quit

as coach of the North Melbourne

Football Club. It is more solid in

the traffic department. You're

above grey stains with a huge

problem. A lot of family members

going to Penrith will be home late

40. After the bad smash - take a

look at that. The traffic

unfortunately, no relief until you

get past the accident scene at St

Clare. The rain looks like has said

in an will have the latest after the


A blast from the past is helping a

lot of people with their future.

This is really Grant the community

and is about putting the spotlight

on people who are doing enormous

jobs at local sports clubs. Joining

me is the sports manager of the

News Of lies University, Craig News Of lies University, Craig

Davies. We are from the flatlands

of Tasmania and that is why he of Tasmania and that is why he

calls me cousin. You played for

North Melbourne and Collingwood and

this once. This club the Bulldogs -

they have an unbelievable person

involved in the football club. He

is a quiet achiever at an is the

first here and to us to go home and

is everything from bottle washer to

logistics. When we start of this

segment were looking for people who

were around a club and it in fact

they would not be a club without

them. Congratulations, Stephen. You

are the first year and last to go

over is not as though you have

nothing else to go. You are

logistics manager for the Cancer

Council. I haven't day-job at the

Cancer Council and nights and

weekends here with the football.

Where does the passion for the

Bulldogs come from? I like to think

the inner suburbs have a heart and

this club has a heart and total

after me and I look after them.

Congratulations will find what you

have done and they tell me they

would not be half the club they are

without you. We like to put the

spotlight on unsung heroes.

Volunteers makes sport go Round And

anyone who play sport this tearing

down Giles not building them. You

will be have to tell me what the

weather is like up there. It has

been grey and Ordinaries. We had 90

km/h winds at Botany Bay. South-

south-east onshore winds. South-

western areas of the State and 6-

month highs of 16 millimetres and

25 millimetres. A shower or two for

the next four days in the city with

temperatures moving between 16 and sevens game.

Cloud on the News Of Wild Coast

near an offshore Lyle is causing

frequent showers in central parks

and there are a few in the south to.

Cloud over Tasmania and we front

bringing showers. A cold morning to

the south-east inland with frost

and fog patches and then mainly

sunny. Showers along most of the

NSW coast. Heaviest between news

for Castle and Ball mock horror. A

lot of showery activity across

estate in the next 45 days. It will

peak and then taper off.

The eastern Sydney Bulldogs, thank

you, gentlemen, for making me look

like a ruckman on the TV. That is

the news for now. Thanks for your

company. There will be updates

before the Late News with sports tonight. ( BELL RINGING ) ( WHISTLE BLOWS ) ( PLAYING THE BLUES )
