Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 5th 2008
54 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 6, 2008 MB SPORT www.innerwestweekly.com.au Film charts league war A NEW DVD tells the story of a feud between two rugby league teams that turned into a war about class and alleged corruption. The acrimony between Wests and Manly 30 years ago is the subject of The Fibros and the Silvertails. The phrase was coined by Magpies coach Roy Masters to describe the cultural divide between the two clubs. The on-field violence and refereeing controversies came to a head in the 1978 preliminary final, won by the Sea Eagles on their way to the title. This special edition DVD -- only available online at fibrosandsilvertails.com.au -- in- cludes more than three hours of features. The Inner-West Weekly is giving away 10 copies of The Fibros and the Silvertails.

Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP211906 TALENTED soccer goalie Carla Monforte has earned her repu- tation as a safe pair of hands. Not only is the Concord West teenager a shadow goalkeeper for Sydney FC in the W-League, she's also made the Macarthur Rams first grade side. The Santa Sabina student, 16, also represented NSW in both futsal and outdoor soccer at the Australian National Youth Championships this year. Her achievements are es- pecially impressive given that Carla was a striker until her team's goalkeeper got injured early last year. She put her hand up and has ''never looked back''. ''At first I was really nervous but I've learned certain tech- niques which have helped my confidence and improved my skill levels,'' said Carla who trains with Jim Fraser at the International Goalkeeper Acad- emy. But how does she judge which side players are going shoot to? ''If you know the history of the player, then you rely on it,'' she said. ''If not, you try to look into their eyes and commit to a side.'' Carla said she loves being in the firing line, especially when it comes to penalities. She has fond memories of a semi-final she played with Macarthur Rams earlier this year which went to penalties in the closing seconds. ''The first (penalty) goal went in, I saved the second and the third went over the bar. ''Our team scored all theirs so we won.'' Recently Carla was offered the goalie spot on the Newcastle Jets squad, but sadly she had to decline as she's jetting off to the States in a fortnight for a tour with Soccer NSW. Women's soccer is huge in the States and many of the games will be watched by talent scouts trying to tempt players with college scholarships. ''That's my ambition after I finish school,'' she said.
