Nina Stevens, National Nine News. Bulldogs fans have been put on a tight leash after that firecracker incident last weekend.

Tough new rules are now in place at Telstra Stadium to prevent further trouble at home games. Its ranks include the loud and loathsome louts of league, but the Bulldogs Army has been muzzled, possibly for good - its fate sealed by last week's firecracker at Telstra Stadium. EXPLOSION They're not fans, they're just idiots who come to the game to cause trouble. The Bulldogs have devised a new plan to scatter their rogue supporters.

It'll stop the ability for some of them to mill, which is what they do, they tend to get together and incite each other to do stupid things. They haven't waited for a secondary thing to happen -

they've acted swiftly and I believe the things they have put in place are very effectual.

Going into the next few rounds, our fans will demonstrate that they know what's right and what's wrong. The disarming of the Bulldogs army begins this weekend, at Aussie Stadium, for the match against South Sydney. But senior police remain concerned about the possibility of trouble flaring again for the end-of-season grudge match between the Bulldogs and the Roosters. At the same game last year, Bulldogs fans sparked a brawl. Police charged those responsible. Last week's offenders proving more elusive, since literally vanishing in a puff of smoke. Adam Walters, National Nine News. Just as Britain confronts a new terrorist enemy, the country may have finally found peace with the fighting forces of the IRA. The Republican Army has announced the end of its armed campaign against British rule in Northern Ireland, switching to political struggle after a guerrilla war, which began 36 years ago. Unexpectedly and unilaterally, the IRA moved to bring peace to Northern Ireland. All IRA units have been ordered to dump arms. All volunteers have been instructed to assist the development of purely political and democratic programs

through exclusively peaceful means. There was no apology for the decades of violence, and a staunch vow to remember those who gave their lives

in the struggle. Even so, it's considered a massive step forward. This is a step of unparalleled magnitude in the recent history of Northern Ireland. There is a huge responsibility on us all to seize this moment and to make Irish freedom a reality. But the sceptics, especially Irish Protestants, say they've heard promises before and aren't yet convinced. They say they want deeds, not words, when it comes to the handover and destruction of Republican weapons. The real pressure now is to know that the IRA weapons being destroyed and to have knowledge that it's over, and over forever. Most parties, though,

including the British and Irish governments, hope this paves the way for the Northern Ireland assembly to sit again. It did so, briefly, under the terms of the Good Friday Peace Agreement but was suspended in 2002. was the IRA's refusal to disarm.

Australian children are getting fatter, and getting the healthy food message across is a priority. Banning, you know, fundraising chocolates and doughnuts in schools is long-overdue. But the Parents and Citizens Federation and the Education Department readily concede that so-called junk food drives will continue to be enormously popular -

and while canteen food is steadily improving, schools should still try harder. Really encourage them to look at what they're selling and to make sure that it's consistent and it is healthy food.

The National Party has offered a sweetener

to try to make the full privatisation of Telstra more attractive to people in the bush. Leader Mark Vaile today suggested that $2 billion from the sale could go towards a special fund to protect services to country areas. On the markets, Telstra shares gained 1 cent.

Now a fascinating view of politicians having fun, with our Foreign Minister taking a starring role. It was the close of the Asean Summit with Mr Downer providing his own lyrics to 'Now or Never'.

There are renewed calls for shark nets to be banned from tourist beaches after a whale became tangled in one on the Gold Coast.
