 The person who threw a near-full bottle of soft drink towards Jamie Soward as he lined up an after-the-siren penalty goal faces having their Bulldogs membership torn up. The incident occurred as Soward missed a chance to level the scores in a dramatic finish to the St George Illawarra-Canterbury clash at ANZ Stadium on Friday night. Canterbury chief executive Todd Greenberg warned the offender faced serious punishment if caught.

”If they are a member we’ll strip their membership from them,” Greenberg told Triple M’s Deadset Legends on Saturday. ”We’ll work with the NRL. There are things in place for life bans and multiple-year bans, we judge each one on their merit. It’s safe to say that once we find that person, they won’t be watching rugby league for a significant time.”

Greenberg has already been in contact with officials from ANZ Stadium to try to reveal the culprit.

”It would do some damage if it hit someone,” Greenberg said. ”We will work as hard as we can to identify those people and once we find them, if we find them, we’ll take appropriate action. I would suggest that the person who did throw it should be very nervous because the type of surveillance cameras at ANZ Stadium are cutting edge. If we find out, we’ll do everything we can to make sure that person is not welcome any more.”

On Tuesday night council voted to sell an empty block known as Glovers Lane Reserve, located at 29-31 Laman Street.

Mark Sampson, spokesman for the Glovers Lane Residents Action Group, said the land comprised two residentally zoned lots that for the past 40 years had been used as a park, with posted reserve conditions.

“It’s a pocket park, a hidden gem,” Mr Sampson said. “It’s an oasis and it is important for residents of a high-density housing area.”

Mr Sampson said the group would during the next fortnight lobby council for a rescission motion.
