A parliamentary committee appearing to be political, not much of a surprise....
Reading objectively (only glossed so far) one is struck by the fact that no individual students, agents, school admissions nor international related personnel views were cited in the report, explains why views were not actively sought in the first place? Local workplace issues take precedence over international student care?
Appears that (especially) state sector providers resorted to related unions speaking on their behalf to the committee, and private used peak industry bodies, while committee paid attention to everyone, everyone except the clients and those actually working within system?
Some half hearted attempts at including views of students, but again shows this Australian (bureaucratic) resistance to hearing it how it is from users?
Interesting note, is that it appears the committee demanded that state VET accreditation bodies make submissions, and in return got replies stating that NTIS training packages are used, therefore if any quality problems it is DEEWR's fault...
This pass the parcel on education quality is going to go on for years...... unions as a rule will do everything possible to avoid scrutiny of teaching and administrative quality in state sector. This is also true in private as it may set a precedent that must be replicated in state sector....

From The Australian A SENATE report on the welfare of international students was criticised yesterday for skating over problems of racism threatening student safety.
The report, tabled in parliament yesterday, found that the majority of evidence suggested that assaults against international students were more likely to be "opportunistic robberies" than prompted by racism.
Simon Marginson comments: Relations still at low ebb. DESPITE much "window-dressing" about the overseas student issue, nothing has been done to improve relations with the Australian community, higher education analyst Simon Marginson warned this week.
Shonky colleges can be fixed within the existing regulatory framework, but student safety goes to the heart of relations with the Australian community, the Melbourne University professor of higher education said.
In both cases there is already sufficient legislation and regulations, the issue is getting anybody to be responsible?
The typical size of a new Australian home hit 215 square metres in the past financial year, up 10 per cent in a decade, according to Bureau of Statistics data compiled for Commonwealth Securities.
Sales of new homes in Australia dropped in October, an industry survey showed today, in a further pullback from stimulus-driven gains earlier in the year.
The Housing Industry Association said sales dropped 6 per cent in October, on top of a 4.3 per cent decline in September. That largely unwound an 11.4 per cent jump in August as people rushed to take advantage of additional first home-buyer grants.

Official Working Holiday Visa & Immigration DIAC Website.
Full letter on the University World News site.
AUSTRALIA: Collapse spreads around global village. News spreads fast in the global village created by the World Wide Web. And bad news always travels that much more quickly than any other kind as the Australian government found to its likely cost this month when a Chinese-owned company called the Global Campus Management Group that ran a series of vocational education colleges in Melbourne and Sydney for foreign students suddenly shut its doors and went into voluntary liquidation.
High schools lose foreign students as fees, fears rise. VICTORIAN high schools have suffered an unexpected drop in enrolments by foreign students, prompting new fears for the state's $4 billion international education industry. Melbourne universities and training colleges have been in the spotlight this year after a string of violent attacks on Indian students and the closure of several disreputable colleges. But the latest Federal Government figures suggest high schools, not tertiary institutions, are bearing the brunt of falling enrolments - and cost seems to be the main factor.
All sectors will have falling numbers due to knee jerk reactions in Australia to violence against Indians, study to PR system issues, rapid population growth etc., but the good news is that it should lead to falling house prices :)
Like how markets, cities, regions etc. can lose interest, attract less visitors and interest (while ignoring the most important communication channels, i.e. word of mouth and the internet), some regions of Australia are losing their own young, while doing so blaming the internet!
Have regions etc. ever thought of using the internet to increase their profile nationally and internationally, to attract awareness, interest, visitors and new residents? Me thinks not...
Internet blamed as Burdekin youth drift away. SOCIAL networking sites on the Internet have been blamed for a drift of young people away from the Burdekin Shire area. James Cook University demographer Dr Sue Bandaranaike said that in the 12 months from June 2007 to June 2008 the Burdekin recorded a population change of minus 90.
She said social networking sites such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook were exposing young people in rural areas to the wonders of the wider world. She said young people were leaving their home areas to live in cities not just in Australia, but around the world as a result of contacts and information they made and recorded on the Internet.
Has the region considered using the internet to increase awareness and attract interest from rest of Australia and internationally?
Hard times for easy-living communities. YOUNG couples who buy into outer-suburban housing developments often cannot afford to live there, have limited career choices and struggle without close family support, research shows. Drawn to the large, modern family homes, and the idea that they are ''pioneers'' of the easy-living area, residents pay higher-than-average mortgages, rely heavily on cars, and take on unsustainable work arrangements.
No cause to whine when the choice is Grange or Grace. AFTER more than 50 years, the supremacy of Penfolds Grange as Australia's leading wine is under threat. Fellow South Australian winemaker Henschke's latest Hill of Grace, the 2005 vintage, is selling for $510 at the cellar door and about $550 in liquor stores. The current 2004 Grange release also sells for about $550 a bottle - leaving the two locked in combat as buyers seek out collectable wines as Christmas presents.

Q1. What is happening to the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL)?
A review of the purpose of the MODL and its methodology has commenced and is expected to be completed in late 2009. The review aims to make MODL a more strategic tool in identifying the medium to long-term skill needs that complement Australia’s skill supply through the domestic tertiary education sector.
Q2. Why is the MODL being reviewed?
The review of the MODL is aimed at developing a better link between skilled migrant employment outcomes, the national training agenda and the work of Skills Australia, to ensure that skilled migration is aimed at responding to future skill needs which cannot be addressed through domestic training and skills development.
Q3. When will the new MODL be implemented?
The arrangements for the transition to the new MODL will be determined once the outcomes of the review are finalised. The Critical Skills List will remain in place while the review is in progress and then be phased out following the implementation of any recommendations flowing from the review.
Q4. What will happen to priority processing of CSL applications?
Occupations which are listed on the CSL receive priority processing, which assists the targeting of the migration program. These arrangements will continue until the review is finalised. Once the review is finalised, arrangements for phasing out the CSL will be announced.
... Interest in Kewell has sky-rocketed with the attacking midfielder enjoying a renaissance at a club for whom he has struck 24 goals in 57 appearances, 11 of those coming in 21 games so far this season in all competitions...
.. That latest strike preceded frenzied speculation in the Turkish media over an apparent bid for Kewell from Gala’s deadly rivals Fenerbahce....
Kewell neden Ada'ya dönecek? Kewell ın İngiltere ye dönme arzusunu, Benitez e olan kızgınlığı ateşlemiş... Kewell’ın Sarı-Kırmızılı kulübe transfer olduğu Liverpool’daki son döneminde kendisine forma şansı vermeyen hocası Benitez’e büyük bir kızgınlığının bulunduğu ve Florya’daki yakın çevresine “Bir gün mutlaka İngiltere’ye döneceğim.....
The report, released exclusively to ABC's Lateline program, comes despite conventional wisdom that in the financial crisis employers have not sacked workers en masse, but merely cut their hours.
Bit more honesty from ABC versus print media who are harbingers of only good economic news, and encouraging people to buy or upgrade properties.....

He is open to sponsors, ideas, whatever!
Surgeon shortage threatens regional health. A critical shortage of general surgeons in emergency wards across the country is threatening the 7 million Australians living outside metropolitan areas. General surgeons are required to deal with almost any surgical emergency, from hernias to hip replacements, and are the essential ingredient in keeping full-scale surgical care operating effectively in regional areas.
Reserve Bank unfazed as housing prices keep rising. WORRIED that $500,000 is too much to pay for a Melbourne house? The Reserve Bank isn't worried and it expects prices to climb higher still. In a speech that amounted to a defence of Australia's historically high house prices, Reserve Bank deputy governor Ric Battellino told a Melbourne housing conference yesterday to expect worse and to recognise that buyers were getting value for money.
Who needs advertising when the real estate industry has the RBA spruiking on their behalf?
...House prices would be boosted by increased population growth and immigration, solid increases in household incomes and ''substantial competition'' for construction industry workers from the mining sector....
Really? Independent Skilled Migration processing suspended, student numbers trending downward, baby boomers retiring etc,?
Meanwhile more housing costs to increase....
Households to foot emissions scheme bill. The upshot of the events in Canberra yesterday and today is that the Government's emissions trading scheme will be passed by the Senate sometime later this week - barring miracles or accidents. The Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme requires businesses to pay for the carbon they emit and that means we will all have to pay, but how much? On July 1, 2011, it will cost to emit carbon dioxide.
Private college system a fiasco in need of a fix. Even as the rot in international education is laid bare, the Brumby Government would like us to believe the problems with private colleges are restricted to a handful of small, fly-by-night operators. Rubbish. The recent closure of nine colleges in Melbourne and Sydney left nearly 3000 stranded foreign students clinging on to nothing more than hope.
Gillard holds to VET education regulator plan. FEDERAL Education Minister Julia Gillard will press ahead with plans for a national vocational education regulator, despite the refusal of Victoria and Western Australia to sign over their powers. The Government will legislate next year to create the regulator, which will accredit colleges, including those offering courses for international students.
Finally, though WA probably wants to retain control re. mining industry training etc., Victoria because they are incompetent in regulating dodgy colleges....
"While the world economy as a whole is forecast to remain relatively sluggish next year, economic growth for the group of countries that comprise our major trading partners is expected to recover to a relatively normal pace," he said.
True? Seems to be very dependent upon other economies......

Excellent article which raises three points:
1. Need to increase saving.
2. Need for urban planning and higher density living.
3. Need to address ageing population.

Informacije Slovenskim državljanom
Vizum je potreben. Avstralska vlada je 27.10.2008 uvedla nov spletni vizumski sistem t.i. »eVisitors«, ki se nanaša na državljane držav članic EU in na državljane nekaterih drugih evropskih držav.
Sistem »eVisitors« je internetno baziran, stalno dostopen sistem pristojnega avstralskega ministrstva za imigracijo, ki omogoča vložitev vloge (turistični/poslovni obiski) na spletnem naslovu: www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/visitors.htm
»eVisitor« sistem je prost plačila vizumske takse in omogoča več vstopov v Avstralijo v skupnem obdobju enega leta (vsak od vstopov v trajanju do treh mesecev). V idealnih pogojih prosilec že po nekaj minutah po oddaji elektronske vloge v svoj elektronski nabiralnik prejme obvestilo o odobritvi vstopa v Avstralijo. Kljub temu priporočamo, da za vizum zaprosite najmanj 14 dni pred nameravanim potovanjem. Ob prihodu v Avstralijo mejni organi vtisnejo v potni list, na številko katerega je vezana elektronska vizna odobritev, ustrezen žig prihoda.
Vizumske vloge, ki so podane v pisni obliki pri pristojnih avstralskih predstavništvih v tujini, so še naprej procesirane ob plačilu takse v višini 75 AUD.

And is there honey still for tea? Luring foreign students is getting harder... But trouble is brewing... Most of these (in the US) come from India and China, although a modest but increasing number are British. Australia has also reported strong demand from these countries and others.... Changes to the British student-visa system this year have left thousands of foreign students stranded at home and as angry as wet cats.
Think we can assume significant drop from India, and possibly China, is occurring already regarding Australia due to domestic opposition, visa changes and very negative media reports on violent racist attacks in Australia.
Further, British, Australian and US governments by appeasing bigots and misinformed voters are "cutting off their nose to spite their face".
As a comment states on the above article, there is a dependence upon international students to subsidise domestic, and to study in the technically more difficult occupational areas, where the latter do not.
Like US, issues are in the school system where students appear not be up to speed in sciences (and languages), and preferring to study humanities, business and other more generic areas.
How do you ensure standards improve in high school, encourage more science and maths learning, then students can then go onto university and related careers? These careers include maths/science teachers, engineering, IT, health sciences and related, i.e. international and domestic skills shortages.

ATDW Australian Tourism Data Warehouse Tourism e-kit. Written by experts but understood by everyone. The online tourism education e-kit is an initiative of the National Online Strategy Committee and is funded by all Australian State and Territory tourism offices.
The online marketing e-kit covers everything from the basics of developing a good web site to advanced topics like search engine marketing and online product distribution. The same principles and e-kit tools can be applied to the international education marketing industry also.
Free Online E-Marketing Course Devoured by Australian Tourism Operators. The new Tourism e-kit, the country’s largest free online e-marketing course for Australian tourism operators, hits record breaking consumption today unprecedented in the history of the industry and providing more than a piece meal of information.
Highlighting the current hunger of Australian operators to catch up with the rest of the world on their online marketing prowess, the e-kit, produced by The Australian Tourism Data Warehouse, (ATDW), reaches an historic milestone with more than 10,000 downloads of the entire program and thousands of downloads of the single tutorials, just 14 days after its launch.
AIEC QUEST Australian International Education Centre also has profile on LinkedIn and member of groups related to international and education eMarketing and recruitment using virtual aor online channels.
There seems to be a misinterpretation by education institution International Offices of what marketing is, like many businesses in Hungary:
”the concept of marketing is not always clear even to those working in the field. Many interpret it as marketing communications, such as advertising and direct marketing, while in reality it is a tool in business management which ensures - through developing products, pricing policy, positioning, communication and customer research - that a given producer or provider can successfully enter a market and stay there for a long time.”

As Australia seeks to rebuild its reputation as an education hub for foreign students, the Brumby Government is pushing the Commonwealth for sweeping changes designed to weed out shonky colleges, provide overseas students with more support, and enhance the quality of tertiary courses.
Good one, blame the federal government when the state government had done nothing proactive to weed out or at least monitor massive growth iin new college registrations....

Refugee dads get into the swim. GOOFING about at Smiths Beach on Phillip Island yesterday, the 15 African fathers and their children were learning not only how to surf, but how to negotiate the treacherous rips of life as a refugee family in Australia.
Monash University An African venture. Global expansion has not always been a winning strategy for Australian universities, though Ed Byrne cannot disguise his optimism for a project unfolding across the Indian Ocean. Since taking up his post as Monash's eighth vice-chancellor in July, Professor Byrne has twice visited the university's South African offshoot in Johannesburg and is convinced it will come to be seen as "the jewel in the Monash crown".
Question: Who paid for this trip to South Africa? Was this investigative journalism, or PR?
Melbourne, Victoria DODGY private colleges that exploit foreign students will be closed down sooner and have their details made publicly available under changes aimed at restoring confidence in Victoria's beleaguered international education industry.
Fine, but have state agencies responsible worked out a more intrusive system to audit and evaluate colleges plus the student experience?
Lots of questions, no answers for angry students. THEY came searching for answers but found only uncertainty. Hundreds of foreign students, mainly Indian and Chinese, packed into Melbourne Town Hall hoping the Federal Government, which had called the meeting, would explain why their colleges had collapsed and what the future now held.
Melbourne broadband base. MELBOURNE has been selected as the home for the technology team building the national broadband network. The move will make the city a major focus of early development of the network.
Populate and perish. Somewhere Peter Costello is smirking. The former treasurer loves to talk about his role in encouraging Australians to have more children.
A government crackdown on fraudulent second-year working holiday visa applications has resulted in rising numbers of backpackers withdrawing their applications, according to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). DIAC director of working holiday section Deirdre Russack told delegates at the Adventure and Backpacker Industry Conference (ABiC) an Irish backpacker had his visa cancelled after he was found to have submitted a fraudulent application.

Most if not all education markets in Central Eastern Europe, Turkey and other parts of EU have potential for international education providers but not by accepted marketing practice through commissioning physical events, seminars or fairs, i.e. ”20th century or 1980s marketing”.
AIEC is encouraging more immediate impact via ”Noughties style services marketing” model, online accessing through CEE to Turkey time zones (90% of study enquiries are mix of word of mouth and internet driven), including direct marketing with private and public institution counsellors.
AIEC’s focus over next year will be Turkey including regional cities such as Adana, Antalya. Kayseri, Trabzon, Ankara, Konya, Bursa, Izmir and Istanbul
Overview Turkish Education Market for International Education Institutions.
Europeans Choose Internet Over TV Almost six out of 10 Europeans now regularly access the Internet and, for the first time, young people are more likely to go online for most days of the week than turn on the television, according to a new survey.
In Turkey, a country of over 70,000,000 people (2008 census). 61% are at the formative age where they are working on their education and shaping their futures.
According to Austrade: Competition for university admission in Turkey is fierce – over 1.7 million Turkish students sit for around 500,000 university places, including two-year associate degrees; only an average of less than one in four is successful.
Turkey has over 200 private schools (100,000 students), and nearly 40 private universities, many including vocational schools, most have tuition through English.
According to the WYSTC World Youth & Student Travel Conference Approximately 27,000 Turkish students (probably German resident), attend German universities, 12,000 attend universities in the US and 1,600 attend British universities.
European Bank of Reconstruction & Development is the first international finance corporation, among many others, to revise Turkey’s economic growth in a positive direction. The bank had published a report estimating Turkey’s 2010 growth to be 1 percent. The bank has revised that outlook to 3 percent.

I agree, most skill shortages areas are in the VET vocational area which prospective migration candidates are encouraged to fill. However, Australians are encouraged to attend university in greater numbers to study anything and seem unaware of skill shortage areas e.g. engineering, science, accounting, health, medical, maths science teaching etc.
Does this have anything to do with preference for humanities or general degrees which are not enough for specific occupations?
What is the point, to keep university personnel employed?

I would query not just the role of Austrade but also IDP? IDP was started by universities as agency to market and recruit, required injection of funds, awarded IELTS test monopoly, and is now part owned by publicly listed company Seek.
Austrade are very good at self promotion and one off events, which when in cahoots with Australian education industry, translates into mostly universities and TAFE paying Austrade for short term market entry services (meetings, intelligence, event organisation, agent meets etc.) that require travel offshore..... but no longer term analysable sustainable strategies
One would question, with all the world class expertise in Australian education sector why they cannot come up with a good marketing strategy?
Have dealt with Australian education for over 15 years and have never been aware of international market strategy including most effective, wide reaching, measurable and economic channels i.e. student word of mouth, internet and offshore agents.
What do they come up with continually? "Approved international travel plans" to solid state events...
Why not internet (24/7, all candidates go online for information)? Personally have dealt with 200+ Australian international education onshore officers and not aware if any have required marketing skill set, let alone virtual marketing skills, why?
As a senior Australian university person said, "If we used the internet which I am sure is effective, we would not need to travel, ha ha"
As opposed to travel plans that must cost in vicinity of $AUD100 million annually, demand virtual marketing strategy for Australian International Education sector, or run a competition for marketing and IT interns?
If IDP, Austrade, universities, state governemnts etc. have so much expertise and have so successful in internatinal education marketing, why did they not see the slow car crash happening with Indian students etc.? Because they don't want to talk with their clients.....

Ausztrália oktatás: Ez az oldal az ausztráliai tanulmányi lehetőségekkel mint általános iskolák, középiskolák és szakmai képzésekkel foglalkozik.
Teljesen váratlanul bezártak négy ausztrál magániskolát. Egy papírt tettek ki az ajtóra, hogy vége. Ez azért is furcsa, mert Ausztráliában - a világon egyedüliként - az oktatás a harmadik legjövedelmezőbb iparág.
Ausztrál faji előitéletek. Évtizedes kutatás Ausztráliában arra az eredményre jutott, hogy míg országunkban élők többsége támogatja a kulturális sokféleséget, sokan mégis úgy vélik, az etnikai különbségek fenyegetettséget jelent a társadalmi békére.

World hits Rudd over boat people stand-off. THE Federal Government's tough stance on asylum seekers is attracting international media attention - most of it critical and likely to damage Australia's standing. .
Out of the Woods: state's tourism links to golf's El Dorado. HE'S not so much a golfer as a phenomenon, one of the greatest athletes of our age, a multicultural role model and cash register on legs. And as Eldrick ''Tiger'' Woods paces around Kingston Heath this week during his first Australian visit in 11 years, in addition to any personal aspirations he might harbour, he'll be carrying the hopes of the state's tourism and events industries on those powerful shoulders.
I wish more of you were here. TOURISM QUEENSLAND hailed it as the ''most successful tourism campaign ever'', a $2.5 million strategy that returned $390 million in global publicity. But the Best Job in the World campaign has failed to lure foreigners. Official figures show the number of international holidaymakers travelling to Queensland dropped by 8 per cent in the 2008-09 financial year. The total number of international visitors - which also includes people travelling on business and for other reasons - fell 5 per cent.
Dollar's up, so we're nicking off. Australians are leaving the country as never before. The soaring Aussie dollar and low international airfares pushed the number of Australians taking holidays overseas up above 600,000 in September with the number leaving in the past year hitting a record 6 million.
DIAC: Australians need to travel to assist with Working Holiday program. More Australians must travel overseas to assist with the influx of international working holiday makers visiting Australia, the Department of Immigration And Citizenship (DIAC) has said. DIAC director of working holiday section, Deirdre Russack told delegates at the Adventure and Backpacker Industry Conference (ABiC) today that many more UK citizens are visiting Australia than the other way around and was also the case in other markets where Australia has reciprocal visa arrangements.
‘Brand Australia’ knocked off top spot in Country Brand Index. Australia has been knocked off top spot as the world’s best country brand, in the 2009 FutureBrand Country Brand Index (CBI). After three years as the most popular country brand, Australia has slipped to third position and was overtaken by the USA in first place and Canada second. New Zealand came in at fourth spot.
We are not British - that's why a republic is so important. Independence is about taking pride in our unique culture. THE 10th anniversary of the referendum reminded me that I should dust off the old ''Young Australians for a Republic'' banner in the shed and drop it off at the national archives.

"The Esos amendment bill will also introduce new processes to ensure greater transparency and accountability of international education providers, including their use of education agents. How this will be managed was unclear at the time of going to press. One suggestion was that agent partners used by each institution should be publicly listed – a suggestion slammed by Sue Blundell of English Australia. “This is an unrealistic proposal that will not contribute to addressing issues of current concern and may very well have implications in relation to trade practices and commercial confidentiality,” she said, as reported in Campus Review."
The Campus Review:
‘Knee-jerk’ regulations could scuttle international enrolments. With passage of the Education Services for Overseas Students Amendment Bill now a formality, stakeholders warn that Australia risks throwing the baby out with the bathwater in a knee-jerk reaction to recent bad press over its international education industry. The Bill - which requires providers to reregister and to publish lists of their agents, among other changes - passed the House of Representatives last Monday. A few days earlier a Senate standing legislation committee recommended passage of the Bill, ahead of the Senate's next sitting this week. The Opposition succeeded in amending the...
Interesting viewpoint from a marketing perspective, I am an agent and think it is a great idea :) In essence, EA English Australia is saying that providers would not be interested in increasing the awareness, enquiries, applications from diverse and multiple international markets in their institutuion, at no great cost? By listing agents and their (other language) websites this is what will happen organically.
A good example is Tourism Australia's http://www.australia.com which lists certified Aussie Specialists, thus getting very diverse traffic and interest, from throughout the world, not just where they promote physically.
See Australian Tourism Data Warehouse online marketing ekit.
Surely this has nothing to do with Luddites worrying about redundancy? If virtual channels are not used for marketing they will then surely become redundant?

IMMIGRATION has held a special place in the fears of many Australians but the figures tell a different story to that told by Liberal MP Kevin Andrews. We're hardly over-stuffed. The data on asylum seekers and refugees in particular provides some much-needed perspective on the current national debate. It was clearly Mr Andrews' intent in discussing Labour's immigration policy to play on the fears of many Australians who have been led to believe there is a flood of asylum seekers waiting to hop a boat to Australia. However, I think we would do well, as a nation to consider that developing countries host 80 per cent of the world's refugees.
About time, too many white Australia attitudes rearing their head.....
The gap between Australia's regional jobless rates is at its widest in almost 20 years. FAR north Queensland may be beautiful one day, perfect the next, but the economic climate in the tropical north has taken on a definite wintry chill.
Also includes info on Melbourne suburbs etc.
HUNDREDS of new high-rise apartments on the upper north shore have stood empty for months due to a lack of demand, casting doubt on the State Government's strategy of opening up the region for high-density development. Developers have resorted to offering thousands of dollars worth of free furniture in an effort to sell apartments in the shiny new five-storey blocks that have sprung up from Wahroonga to Roseville.
A re-emergence of a skills shortage is expected within 12 months despite business doing all it can to hold on to staff during the economic downturn, a survey finds. The Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) and consultant Deloitte warn that the skills shortage will re-emerge when trading conditions improve because of a drop in training and number of apprentices.
Rules skew student choice. THERE is frequent criticism in the media about education agents and about students seeking permanent residence via the study-immigration route. Demographers have theories, trade unions have political positions and newspapers publish half-informative, half-inflammatory articles. This gets us nowhere; we need people for the coming economic boom.
Robbie Fowler Northern Fury Townsville REVENGE and redemption are two words that seem to have been bandied about in the days leading to tonight's game against Gold Coast United. But from my perspective that just isn't a motivator heading to Skilled Park. Sure, they gave us a bit of a hiding last time we met, and we do want to beat them, but if you go into a match thinking about revenge, there's a real chance you'll come unstuck.
Robbie Fowler living the dream in Far North Queensland, and getting a goal or two also :)
