If you haven’t bought into the Adelaide hype yet, the Reds could very well convince you over the next fortnight.

In the start of a challenging last five rounds before the Hyundai A-League Finals, Adelaide will host fourth-placed City on Friday and then travel to Western Sydney Wanderers, currently second, next week.

Win those two games and they will undoubtedly be favourites for the premiership and championship.

Coach Guillermo Amor deserves so much credit for turning the Reds around – they started the season with an eight-game win-less run but haven’t lost in their past 14 matches.

And with clean sheets in their last three fixtures, Adelaide look to be the complete team.

City also claimed a clean sheet last week, knocking off Sydney FC 3-0 at home, but it was only their second of the 2015-16 campaign.

Defence remains City’s main weakness and Patrick Kisnorbo and Co. will have to be at their best to thwart Adelaide’s multi-faceted attack.

City will be without Anthony Caceres (quadriceps), while Adelaide will miss Tarek Elrich (groin) for at least four weeks, although his loss is tempered by the return of Isaias.


Adelaide’s 4-0 win over Wellington Phoenix last week saw the Reds set a new club record for consecutive games without defeat

Not since Round 24 of the 2012-13 A-League season has either team kept a clean sheet in this fixture

Adelaide have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three matches, never before in their A-League history have they notched four in a row

City haven’t won away from home since Round 10 this season


These two teams could hardly have more different set-ups in the forward third.

While record-breaking striker Bruno Fornaroli is City’s focal point, Adelaide’s entire squad continues to chip in on the scoreboard.

Amor’s side have won their past four games, scoring 11 goals from six different players.

After a tough start to the season, however, centre-forward Bruce Djite appears to have found his shooting boots, with the 28-year-old having hit the back of the net in three of Adelaide’s past four matches.

Midfielder Stefan Mauk has also been critical, scoring twice in six matches, continuing his strong scoring form after leaving City in January – the 20-year-old has six goals for the season.

Fornaroli’s hat-trick last week took him to 20 goals for the season – more than any player has ever previously managed in an A-League regular season.

But City are far from a one-trick pony, with Aaron Mooy (10 goals) and Harry Novillo (9 goals) supporting the Uruguayan.

Both teams will need to be switched on in the opening 15 minutes after half-time, as City are both the leading scorers (12 goals) and worst defensive team (9 goals) in that period of matches this term.


Bruno Fornaroli. The former Danubio striker broke Besart Berisha’s record at AAMI Park last week, while Fornaroli struck twice in Adelaide earlier in the season as City triumphed 4-2. Can he wreak havoc at Coopers Stadium again?

Adelaide bars: boom or bust?

Mary Taylor


Around 53 small bars opened in Adelaide this year and, with more planned for 2016, the growth is having an impact on both the old and new players in the drinks industry.

alt text for flag

Restaurant and Catering SA, part of the national industry association representing 35,000 restaurants and catering businesses across Australia, says local growth is “unprecedented”.

“More than 200 new businesses have opened in Adelaide this year, including 53 new small bars, with another 17 small bars to open in 2016,” says CEO Sally Neville.

Neville says the the small bar licensing activity has had an impact on the trade of established venues, and some of the first small bars to open are now also feeling the effects after just one to two years of trade.

“While close to 70 new bars offering greater choice for consumers, these new businesses are capturing a lot of the traditional hotel trade.

“And some of the first small bars to open are also starting to see a downturn in trade, as it is human nature for us to want to go to the new place in town – that trend is evident in restaurants as well.

“Despite the fact that there are now more businesses, the slice of the pie thinner than before.”

Neville says the Australian Bureau of Statistics recently reported a 4 per cent fall in revenues across the restaurant and catering industry in South Australia, “so we are expecting there will be a settling in business numbers”.

As well as consumers becoming fickle, the owners of these new businesses also have a different approach.

“There’s no doubt that people have changed the way they behave; loyalty has diminished for both business owners and consumers,” says Neville.

“The younger business owners approach their businesses in a non-traditional way. They have a simpler business model, they are far more tech-savvy using social media and they’re in it for a faster buck.

“The downside is that these businesses are not necessarily training people in a similar way to the larger bricks and mortar businesses, so there’s no promotional stream for employees.

“They’re not leaving a legacy for the industry.”

While operators of some of the first small bars in Adelaide agree there is more competition than when they first opened, they don’t necessarily see it as a negative.

Alister Robertson, bar manager at Clever Little Tailor, which opened in 2013 in Peel Street, says he hasn’t noticed a change in trade.

“We only fit a small amount of people in our venue, so it’s quite easy to fill up, but there’s definitely more competition out there now which just means standards need to be higher and service needs to be better,” says Robertson.

He also doesn’t see an issue with smaller businesses not leaving a legacy with regard to staff training.

“I don’t see much difference between the larger bricks and mortar businesses and us.

“Low & Slow American BBQ is just another example of a food truck that has established itself as a restaurant. He’s sold out every night. A business like that needs to employ a lot of staff.

“Amalfi’s has been going for more than 30 years and still serves great pasta and they’re busy every night, too. I think if you’re doing something well, you’ll do well. I think there’s room for everybody and I’m pretty confident we offer great service, too.”

Proof was the first bar to open in Anster Street, just off Waymouth Street, and owner Shane Ettridge says he has definitely noticed a change.

“There are certainly less people, but we have to adapt and ensure we keep a strong regular crowd. When you first open, you experience a boom, but then the dust settles and you work out where you sit.

“Building loyalty is our main focus, but we had that in place before the boom. That’s definitely down to the relationship between the bartender and the punter; if you don’t establish that early, there are plenty of other places that will.

“It’s nothing new or tricky; it’s just getting back to basics and providing personal service such as remembering a customer’s name and what they like to drink.

“It’s the kind of service that was established in pubs, but they have become so removed from where they were. We don’t have the same sources of revenue as pubs, such as pokies, so we have to focus on service.

“We’re not new kids on the block any more. We’ve found our niche and Proof is certainly a viable business.”

Call for hot-weather rule change as teen fights for life

Lee Nicholson

Friday December 18, 2015
alt text for flag


Hot weather rules for commercial construction must be also applied to domestic builders, the CFMEU says, as an apprentice fights for life after collapsing in this week’s searing weather.

Travis Mellor, 17, remains in a coma at Royal Adelaide Hospital after collapsing at a suburban domestic building site in 41 degrees on Wednesday.

SafeWork SA is investigating the incident.

Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union SA state secretary Aaron Cartledge told InDaily union officials would meet with SafeWork SA to discuss how domestic builders could be included under state guidelines to ensure all workers were protected from extreme heat conditions.

“The industrial agreement doesn’t apply to domestic workers and they’re really left up to their own devices,” Cartledge said.

“In a lot of ways you’re just left to fend for yourself.”

Cartledge said Mellor, whose grandfather is understood to have been killed on a workplace accident in South Australia before he was born, was not alone in suffering from heat stress on building sites, with new apprentices to senior builders enduring extreme heat this week.

“We get a lot of phone calls from distressed parent who say their son’s throwing up with heatstroke.

“The young apprentice keeps working out of fear he might lose his job if he stops but they don’t even have to be young.

“Older workers who have not had a job for a long time are vulnerable and are not going to stop.”

Industrial guidelines stipulate that work must stop when the temperature reaches 37 degrees Celsius, or 35 degrees in the sun, and when no air-condition in available.

“With the weather bureau, they’re pretty accurate nowadays, you can plan. There’s really no excuse to see a worker out there,” Cartledge said.

A SafeWork SA spokeswoman told InDaily it was investigating the incident for any breaches to the state’s health and safety laws.

“We can confirm that notices have been issued, and as this is an ongoing investigation no further detail can be released at this time,” she said.

“Prohibition notices were issued yesterday, with further assessment on whether any improvement notices will be issued.”

A prohibition notice prohibits an employer carrying out activity until the inspector is satisfied that the risk has been remedied.

Under South Australia’s work health and safety legislation Division 2, General Working Conditions, a business must make sure their workers are not at any risk of extreme heat or cold.

The maximum penalty for an individual is $6000 and $30,000 for a body corporate.

Work health and safety laws specify that work conditions must be free of risks.

Heat stress does not only occur outside, but can also be experienced working in hot, cramped areas that have inadequate ventilation.

Heat illness, or heat stroke, occurs when the body cannot sufficiently cool itself and you absorb more heat from your environment than you can get rid of through perspiration or other forms of cooling.

Inability to perspire can be caused by the amount of air movement, clothing, humidity, physical activity, surrounding radiant temperature and general temperature.

Signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing heat illness include headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness, irritability, thirst, cramps and heavy sweating.

Cartledge appealed to all site manager to provide their workers with shade, cool drinks and allow them to leave the site when temperatures became too hot.

“If someone puts their hand up and says ‘I need to go home’ – let them and make sure they’re not persecuted for it.”

Uni gags Radio Adelaide staff

December 18, 2015

In this week’s Media Week column, the University of Adelaide gags Radio Adelaide staff from speaking to the media, South Australia’s teenage conservative columnist has a setback, the media silly season starts early, and much more.

University gags Radio Adelaide staff

The University of Adelaide has gagged staff of Radio Adelaide from talking to the media.

Radio Adelaide, which has been campaigning for its survival after the university released an options paper canvassing its closure, has been run by the university since it began more than 40 years ago.

Station management, until this week, have been available to comment in the media about the station’s position and advocate for its future. They’ve been far from scathing, while being assertive about the station’s value and the university’s previous commitments to keep it open and fund its move to new premises.

However, the university brought down the gag this week as it announced a surprise move to pitch the station to potential external owners.

The university says that allowing staff to speak publicly could undermine efforts to find new financial backers for Radio Adelaide.

“Negotiations continue with a number of interested parties, and an announcement will be made in January,” a university spokesman told InDaily.

“The registration of interest process – announced by the university earlier this week – remains open, and expressions of interest are welcomed by 24 December 2015 from any other organisations with the capacity to take a significant financial interest in the station.

“This is now a formal registration of interest process and the university is keen to ensure usual probity conditions are observed and that the privacy of the parties is protected. Even well-intentioned public comment can undermine the outcome of these efforts.”

Setback for SA’s budding Bolt

Sixteen-year-old Adelaide conservative Caleb Bond was all set for a weekly column with one of the nation’s biggest tabloid newspapers, The Daily Telegraph, over summer – only to see the opportunity torn from his grasp.

Bond confirmed to Media Week that he had been set to replace syndicated News Corp columnist Andrew Bolt in the Tele on Thursdays over summer, but that would no longer be happening.

He’s being a little coy about the circumstances, saying that “as you’d know, things in the media change at the drop of a hat so that one isn’t happening”.

“But I will still be maintaining a relationship with the Tele and you’ll see columns pop up around the place, just not on the Thursdays as was planned.”

On Twitter, he suggested that someone, somewhere had undermined him (he also suggested that he wouldn’t be writing at all – a Tweet he later deleted).

The Guardian’s media column, The Weekly Beast, blames new editor Chris Dore, who started at the Tele on Monday.


Bond is building a multi-media profile from his home in the Adelaide ‘burbs. He has penned several columns for The Daily Telegraph and The Advertiser, appeared on Studio 10, and been interviewed on Sky News by Paul Murray and on Sydney talk radio station 2GB by Miranda Devine – also a conservative Tele opinion writer.

He has just completed Year 12 at The Heights School in Adelaide’s north-east and tells Media Week he is planning a gap year before continuing with his education.

He’s been in the media since he was six, when he made several appearances on the variety show Rove.

In October this year, he gave an interview to Vice magazine. His approach to their questioning was splendidly candid.

Media silly season starts early

SA Lotteries sucked in a few SA media outlets this week with a story so meaningless that its media release even admitted as much.

The organisation put out its annual “lotto hotspots” announcement, which details where the lucky winners live in SA.

The whole exercise suggests that some suburbs are “luckier” than others, which is so obviously nonsense that SA Lotteries felt obliged to point out this fact.

“While some people are superstitious in deciding where they will purchase their entries from, it is important for players to remember that lotto is a random game of chance,” said SA Lotteries spokesperson Claire Taylor.

“Regardless of where a ticket is purchased, every number on every ticket has an equal chance of being drawn.”

This admission didn’t stop the Tiser issuing the following tease:

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 4.23.13 pm

What we may be able to deduce from the data is that the areas with the highest prize amounts won are probably the areas where people buy the most lotto tickets.

And the top spots include northern Adelaide and Whyalla.

So it’s seems reasonable to assume that these areas – both struggling economically – also have more than their share of lotto-induced losses and misery.

Maybe that’s the real story.

Care about ratings? Moi?

The ABC traditionally pretends it doesn’t care about ratings, when in reality everyone knows it cares deeply.

The ABC’s national head of radio, Michael Mason, this week left no doubt about how he feels about the numbers game after combative local breakfast duo Matthew Abraham and David Bevan shredded their rivals in the final ratings survey of the year.

The other extraordinary performance for 891 was evenings presenter Peter Goers,who lifted his ratings by 2.8 points to now lead the pack. In the previous survey he was in fourth position.

The move of FIVEaa’s veteran presenter Jeremy Cordeaux from evenings to afternoons has given the station a boost after lunch, but it has cost it listeners after dark, losing 1.4 points to slip from first to third.

Naughty corner

ABC 891 fill-in breakfast announcer Spence Denny interviewed musician and Cabaret Festival co-artistic director Ali McGregor this week, and threw in the classic question that no man is ever asked by the media.

“How do you get time to be a mum and a wife when you’re doing all this stuff?”

McGregor answered graciously.

Top of the class

Warm Christmas wishes to all local journalists who have worked steadfastly this year to chase down stories which may not attract as many views as a rehash of last night’s reality TV, or the latest cat video, but bring important issues to light.

Some of the local reporters working in this vein include The Advertiser’s Lauren Novak, who has been given the time and editorial support to write dozens of stories about domestic violence, and InDaily’s own Bension Siebert, who has teased out the complicated details of the Transforming Health proposals over many months.

This week’s gong, though, goes to Radio Adelaide, and the way it has helped so many young reporters get a start in journalism over the years. It’s an increasingly tough career to get into, and Radio Adelaide continues to help aspirational journalists grasp the basics and develop their portfolio. Without it – and isn’t this a familiar story – young broadcasters would be better advised to move interstate to gain experience.

This is the final Media Week column for the year. It will return in January.

Funding for Adelaide anti-violence apps

Friday- December 11, 2015

Lee Nicholson

alt text for flag


Domestic violence is being brought out of the shadows and challenged on many fronts – and some innovative Adelaide developers have been funded to produce apps to add to the anti-violence effort.

Last night three winning pitches were awarded a share of $60,000 in the government-funded 3D Digital Challenge.

On group, “Technology for Women’s Safety”, will receive $15,000 to develop a prototype phone diary app.

Team leader Brad Scrivens said the app would enable women in violent domestic situations to monitor incidents in diary form.

“What we’re trying to do is get to the cycle [of domestic violence] early before things get bad,” he said.

Other recipients were ASMS Innovators, a group of year 10 and 11 students from the Australian Science and Mathematics School, for their “Choose Your Own Adventure” app pitch.

The app is geared towards helping young South Australians understand the consequences of different behavioural decisions.

Cartland Law was chosen for its Automated Legal Information Research Assistant pitch – a Siri-like program that can empower women with information on domestic violence law.

SA Minister for the Status of Women Gail Gago said all South Australians needed to work together to send a clear message that violence against women would not be tolerated.

“While there are already a range of programs in place to support women who are either at risk, or have been victims of violence, we need to strive to find innovative ways to end this scourge,” she said.

“Through the D3 Digital Challenge, entrepreneurs hear from members of the community with first-hand knowledge of the issue before developing their own digital solutions.

“Each team taking part in this round of the challenge is to be commended for their commitment to ending violence against women, and I congratulate all of the winning entries for their creative approach to this very serious issue.”

Federal Social Services Minister Christian Porter said the D3 Digital Challenge for keeping women safe was part of a $12 million technology trials and the Commonwealth Government’s $100 million Women’s Safety Package.

“I congratulate not only the winners of the D3 Digital Challenge, but also the ICT sector for its strong support of this project.

“It reminds us that we can all play a part in reducing violence against women and their children.

“One in six Australian women has experienced violence from a current or former partner.

“We are finally seeing all sorts of communities saying ‘enough’.”

“I wanted to make sure there was a progressive voice on council”


December 09, 2015


Adelaide’s newly-elected councillor says she will add a “very strong cultural voice” to the city, but denies her election represents a major shift in the local government’s dynamic.

alt text for flag

“I don’t think it’s a shift,” arts administrator Sandy Verschoor told InDaily.

“I think it makes the balance work.”

Nonetheless, Verschoor’s previous work for the council, as general manager of city culture and community services for three years from 2012, saw her heavily involved in a number of measures associated with the Stephen Yarwood era, including the arrival of the contentious food trucks and “working closely with the Government on changing liquor licensing laws”.

“When I was in council I looked after cultural and social programs and they are very important to me … they’ve made such a difference to the city over the last few years (and) I wanted to make sure they continued,” she said.

“I wanted to make sure there was a progressive voice on council… I wanted to make sure culture and social entrepreneurship, and everything that goes along with it, remains very much on the agenda.”

Verschoor believes there are “huge opportunities” with the looming shift of the medical precinct and “particularly in creative industries”, but “there’s always a danger” of failing to seize them.

“The balance on council is always a precarious one in that you needs lots of different voices … mine is very much arts and culture, creative industries and a social voice,” she said.

“I know all the councillors, most I know very well … some people are really strong on heritage, some on planning – I hope to add a very strong cultural voice to the mix.”

But she doesn’t expect to be a divisive figure, saying council “has to be a collaborative effort”.

“I don’t have any problem with debate … we should applaud debate,” she said.

“The food trucks (issue) was always going to be reviewed … we were never going to get it right straight off.”

The council’s Economic and Community Development Committee last night endorsed a clarification of the council’s new food trucks policy, after it received legal advice to clear up confusion over the number of vendors allowed to trade in the city.

The new policy, to go to a vote of the full council next week, makes it clear that 20 mobile food vendors will be allowed to trade in the city before 6pm. These will include 10 general permit holders, five “entrepreneur” permit holders, and five permits to be set aside for owners of “fixed” food businesses.

Despite the protracted confusion, Verschoor says “I actually understand what they were trying to do”.

“I think the way it played out didn’t really match the intent … the intent was to try to put something in, to have food trucks to be there and add to vibrancy of the city,” she said.

The message, she believes, “became muddied” because council “got a bit caught up with the words we used”.
