THE miracle of Easter Sunday.
Nanjing Night Net

Now, I am not talking about any religious statement, I am talking about the NRL. Finally, the mighty Cronulla Sharks have had a win and my household was very excited and apparently very loud.

The Sharks have, for the time being, climbed off the bottom of the ladder and now Manly, everyone’s favourite team, has taken that honour.

Of late, it is not often that Sharks supporters have much to cheer about and in fact it feels like an eternity since Cronulla had their last victory.

Only two weeks ago I was at Shark Park (Remondis Stadium) with my sons thinking with four minutes to go, this is it, this will be our win. Sadly a wayward pass to the quickest player in the Titans outfit and our hopes were dashed.

Another loss.

Counting back to 2014, that made 10 in a row.

But no time to reflect on previous losses, we have had a win and that is good enough for now.

Hopefully the fortunes of all our local league, union, soccer and other sporting teams are much better than one win from the last 10 matches.

Talking about being fortunate, some in our community still try their luck and sadly, they have fallen victim to some petty crimes of late.

As wrong as it is that people think it is okay to steal, each of you need to ensure that the temptation is taken away from these criminals.

Over the last week there has been an increase in thefts from motor vehicles in our CBDs and surrounding streets.

Each of these incidents were thefts from unlocked cars and where valuable items were left in clear view of people walking past parked cars.

Personal accountability must be more prevalent especially when there are more people out and about, such as school holidays.

Lock your doors and keep valuables out of sight and you won’t need luck.

Until next week.
