We need to value our most brilliant minds

AN American research paper written in 1978 sums up the state of breast cancer treatment at that time.

Women diagnosed with breast cancer were given three options –mastectomy or removal of the breast, mastectomy with chemotherapy or mastectomy with radiotherapy. The research paper noted it was written at a time when there was “dissatisfaction about the treatment of primary breast cancer”, and when “physician attitudes are very sensitive and react quite rapidly to new recommendations”.

It was in that year that John Forbes, Alan Coates, Michael Green and Raymond Snyder established the Australia and New Zealand Breast Cancer Trial Group, headed by Forbes, which took as its starting point that breast cancer research would guide the future direction of treatments.

It went on to be a leader in global breast cancer research, and Forbes by 2014 and 2015 to be acknowledged as one of the worlds most influential scientific researchers. Some of his, and the group’s, most significant work is in the area of the drug tamoxifen as both a primary treatment of some breast cancers, and also a preventive drug for women at high risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Professor Forbes has remained clear about the aim of the group and his significant personal commitment. They were always working towards ending breast cancer deaths, he said. On Sunday, after a celebration of his achievements at a dinner in Newcastle on Friday night, he predicted that aim would be achieved in the 2030s.

In Australia we are accustomed to the view that sportspeople are role models. We think nothing of our prime ministers lauding the Australian cricket team or tacitly approving sickies on the day we win an international yacht race. Australia’s sporting achievements are a salve to the national psyche.

But it is the achievements of medical scientists like Professor John Forbes that not only change –and save –the lives of countless Australians, but change the course of medical history. Those achievements need to be just as suitably lauded by our community and political leaders.

At a time when science, facts and truth are being constantly challenged by politicians and commentators, it is important that we recognise the extraordinary contribution of our brilliant minds like Professor Forbes.

DO you have an idea of what best represents the Hunter?
Nanjing Night Net

Newcastle and Hunter residents are invited to help design the perpetual Coates Hire Newcastle 500 trophy.

In conjunction with the Newcastle Herald, members of the local community can submit their designs to a judging panel, with the potential to be the inspiration behind the trophy presented to the inaugural Coates Hire Newcastle 500 winner.

The design competition is open to all ages and provides an opportunity for the community to create a unique trophy that reflects the region.

Supercars chief executive James Warburton said the trophy competition was another chance for the community to embrace the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 as its own, and encouraged budding artists to enter.

“The opportunity to design the trophy gives everyone in the community a chance to put their creative skills to the test and create a unique piece of memorabilia that will be the jewel in the crown for the final race of the year,” he said.

“Every driver in the series will want to be the first one to lift that inaugural trophy on Sunday, November 26, and it will no doubt carry with it the pride of the Newcastle community. We look forward to seeing all the entries and will be looking for a unique idea that really reflects Newcastle.”

Newcastle lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes said the design competition offered local motorsport fans a rare chance to be part of local folklore.

“I am intrigued to see what designs people come up with,” she said.

“Perhaps they could reflect the shape of a local landmark like the Obelisk, Nobbys Head or King Edward Park, or even draw inspiration from Newcastle’s emerging status as a smart, liveable and sustainable city.”

The competition is open until July 31. The winning trophy design will be announced on August 2.

The judging panel includes six-time Supercars Champion Jamie Whincup; one of Newcastle’s favourite sons Paul “Chief” Harragon; the Newcastle Herald’s Ross Melville, Coates Hire national marketing and sponsorship Manager Elle Fleming; Newcastle lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes and Supercars chief executive James Warburton.

In addition to seeing their trophy centre stage the winner will receive two three-day passes to the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 and a photo with the winning driver and their trophy.

The Coates Hires Newcastle 500 has been secured for Newcastle by the NSW government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, with the support of Newcastle City Council as a major regional event which will drive significant visitation and economic benefit to the communities of Newcastle and the Hunter.

The Coates Hire Newcastle 500 will be held from November 24 to 26.

Knights implode in 32-28 loss to Dragons

THE Newcastle Knights blew an 18-point lead in crashing toa demoralising 32-28loss to St George Illawarra at Kogarah Oval on Sunday.
Nanjing Night Net

Searching for their first away win in almost two years, Newcastle apparently had the result wrapped up after a dominant first half.

But the home side, capitalising on a glut of possession, surged home with four tries to none after the break.

The result left Newcastle equal last on the ladder with Wests Tigers, who have an extra win to their name. The two cellar dwellers clash at McDonald Jones Stadium next Sunday.

The Dragons led 10-0 after two Jason Nightingale tries in the first eight minutes, but Newcastle responded with 28 unanswered points before half-time.

YOU BEAUTY: The Knights celebrate a try.

HARD YARDS: Newcastle’s Daniel Saifiti charges forward.

Stand-in fullback Nathan Ross scored a hat-trick of tries in the space of 11 minutes, giving him 10 for the season.

Back-rower Lachlan Fitzgibbon also crashed over, and centre Brendan Elliot scored out wide after the Dragons allowed a bomb to bounce.

The home crowd booed the Dragons, who were coming off lacklustre defeats by Parramatta and Canterbury, fromthe field at half-time.

The Dragons suffered an early setback when in-form prop Paul Vaughan limped off in the third minute with a calf injury.

St George Illawarra reduced the deficit to 28-16 when back-rower Joel Thompson scored in the 47thminute and Widdop converted.

PRESSURE: The Dragons concede another try.

Five minutes later, fullback Josh Dugan scored from dummy-half, Widdop landed the goal, and the game was back in the balance.

A quick penalty tap from Dugan three minutes later put the Dragons on the front foot again and they soon created an overlap for Nightingale to score his third try.

From the sideline, Widdop converted to lock scores up at 28 apiece.

With the visitors wilting, former Knights under-20s player Kurt Mann scored to put the home side back in the lead, 32-28.

Two minutes from full-time, Newcastle had a chance to snatch victory but lock Mitch Barnett coughed up a tough ball metres from the line.

Suzy the star as Hunters hit form

NEWCASTLE Hunters kept their Waratah Basketball League women’s finals hopes alive with a gritty 71-64 victory over Illawarra Hawks at the Snakepit in Wollongong on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

A powerhouse performance by triple Olympic medallist Suzy Batkovic (39 points, 24 rebounds, six blocked shots) and a crucial contribution from 18-year-old junior world champion Cassidy McLean (10 rebounds, five points, two steals, two assists) were the keys to Newcastle’s win.

Coach Mark Gledson said all-rounder Alison Ebzery also played a vital role against last-placed Illawarra (1-11), amassing eight points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals. The sixth-placed Hunters improved to a 5-7 win-loss record and face another must-win game against seventh-placed Sydney Comets (3-8) at Broadmeadow next Saturday.

“It was an ugly win, but we will take an ugly win over a good loss, and it made for an easier trip home from Wollongong,” Newcastle coach Mark Gledson said.

“We had a good first quarter for a change, which helped set up the win.

“Suzy was very impressive, and she controlled our defence with six blocks and 19 defensive boards, not to mention scoring 39 points.

STAR: Suzy Batkovic.

“Alison played her usual aggressive game, and Cassidy McLean had a great night on the boards. She had 10 rebounds for the game, and six were offensive.”

Newcastle (2-13) suffered a gut-wrenching 93-91 loss to Illawarra (5-9) in the men’s game at the Snakepit on Saturday night. The Hunters trailed by as many as 18 points midway through the second quarter but closed on a 19-10 run to reduce the deficit to 52-43 at half-time.

Newcastle maintained momentum in the third quarter and built a 66-58 lead with four minutes remaining but the Hawks responded to lead 72-70 at the final break.

Youth League trio Jacob Foy (29 points), Joel Rauch (26) and Jakob Dorricott (16) provided the bulk of Newcastle’s scoring, and Foy added nine rebounds and two steals.

“Our slow start cost us, then our press got us back in the game, and it was a fantastic effort from our three youngest players to score 61 points between them,” Newcastle coach Darren Nichols said.

“We fought hard to get back into the game and then lead, because when we were down by 18 it looked like it could have been 40.

“It’s always tough to lose, especially the close ones, but their coach [Darren O’Brien] said afterwards that … we don’t lay down. That’s all we can ask.”
