One is the loneliest number – and sometimes the coldest.

Melburnians have woken to a bone-numbing morning, the coldest morning in any month for more than 18 years, with the temperature in the city hovering at around one degree for an hour after 6am on Sunday.

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded a stinging one degree at 6.49am, falling further to 0.8 degrees at 7.26am, making it the coolest morning since August 5, 1997, when the temperature was a teeth-rattling 0.3 degrees.

Sunday morning was the coldest July morning since 1994. “The last time we had a zero in rounded figures in Melbourne was August 1997 … and it’s never happened since,” said Bureau senior forecaster Scott Williams.

The reason? On a winter’s night you need a blanket and last night Melbourne had no cloud cover to slide under. Last week’s aggressive, extended stretch of cold (which involved three cold fronts sweeping through the city) left a parting gift: dry air. “We have now had a night with no cloud, no wind and with this dry air … that’s what’s brought about this exceptionally cold morning.”

Sunday was coldest in Ballarat, with the temperature dropping to minus 4.9 degrees. “Ballarat reached the same temperature as Mount Buller and Mount Hotham,” Mr Williams said. “That’s quite exceptional.”

At Essendon Airport, temperatures dropped to minus 1.5 while in Rutherglen and Coldstream it was minus 4. But in the far west of the state, thin cloud cover prevented Horsham from dropping lower than 3 degrees and Hamilton recorded a low of just 4.8 degrees. ‘We had some cloud lingering in the far west of the state that stopped frost occurring out there … you can’t quite wear a T-shirt with 3 degrees but it’s a bit milder and it’d be about an average night for Horsham at this time of year.”

Today is expected to be sunny with a top of 13. “It’s going to be a lovely, sunny day,” said Mr Williams. “It will not feel particularly cold this afternoon because there is hardly any wind.”

Later in the week strong winds and mid-week showers are forecast but warmer nights are expected, with a Wednesday overnight forecast of a decent 11 degrees. “We are not going to get that really cold air mass,” said Mr Williams. “So a milder week after this very, very chilly series of nights.”

TweetFacebookTHE Rabbitohs have overpowereda determined St George Illawarra, scoring two late triesto secure out a 24-8 win in their Heritage Round match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

It wasn’t a classic like the one they came to celebrate. Fifty years ago, 78,065 people crammed into a sunbathed SCG to see St George beat South Sydney 12-8 in the season decider. There was no chance of the crowd being matched either – 18,217 fans braved the cold and damp – but there was some synergy when Dragons fullback Josh Dugan’s 69th minute try left the Rabbitohs holding onto a 12-8 lead.

With Benji Marshall back in the side and the Dragons playing with plenty of intent, there seemed the potential for an upset. But the deal was sealed when Souths halfback Adam Reynolds regained his own grubber kick, which cannoned back off the post, and scored under the posts, and Luke Keary got across the line in the dying minutes.

It had been 8-4 and one try apiece after a tight first half. But an Alex Johnston try nearing the hour mark gave an eight-point buffer to the Rabbitohs from where they launched their late surge to extend the Dragons’ winless streak to six matches.

The match was delicately poised at the break after former Rabbitoh Justin Hunt scored a try for the Dragons with 90 seconds remaining.

It wasn’t the first time Hunt had crossed the line. In the fifth minute he slid past Greg Inglis, back from Origin duty, but the ball came loose as he reached the line. It was given a try on the field but overruled on video evidence.

Against the run of play three minutes later a dummy half run by Dylan Walker proved too much for the defence of Peter Mata’utia and Marshall, and Reynolds converted from the sideline to make it 6-0.

On 16 minutes Souths should have had their second – and probably a goanna celebration – when John Sutton made a break and offloaded to an unmarked Inglis. However, the star fullback took his eyes off the ball and spilled it cold with 35 metres of clear space and a try line ahead of him. Inglis was as stunned at his show of humanity as anyone at the ground.

The Dragons got their kicking game going later in the half but poor discipline left them on the wrong end of five straight penalties. Souths showed their opponents’ defence respect (Mitch Rein had made 31 tackles by half-time and went on to register a remarkable 52 tackles) when they took a penalty goal to make it 8-0, before Hunt got on the end of a brilliant Marshall over-the-top pass to score in the corner.

The second half began as 20 minutes of attrition before the Dragons broke. A short drop out from Marshall, aimed at trying to get the ball back and give the defence a breather after Dugan was tackled in-goal, backfired when Johnston wound up on the end of a neat backline move to score.

The try was unconverted but the eight-point gap looked pretty valuable after a rain shower and the minutes ticking down. Souths lost Cameron McInnes to an ankle injury midway through the half and not long later Dugan injected into the game and planted the ball down out wide to make it 12-8. However, Souths’ power game proved too much and late tries to Reynolds and Luke Keary ensured the points.

DANGEROUS: Callum Hobbs booted four goals for Harrow-Balmoral.
Nanjing Night Net

HARROW-BALMORAL wastoo strong for Natimuk United on Saturday and came away with a 41-point win.

A costly fourth quarter saw the Rams only boot two majors, compared with the Roos’ five.

The final score was 15.8 (98) to 7.15 (57).

Natimuk United coach Simon Brearley said it was not an attractive game from either side.

“We were super competitive though – the first time we played them, they beat us by 20 goals, this time around we were still in it at three-quarter time,” he said.

“We only had one less scoring shot than them, so if we didn’t waste opportunities in front of goals, it might have been closer.”

Brearley said there were 21 contributors to the side.

“Everyone played well,” he said.“Matt Lovel was sensational at centre half back -he has been great there all year.”

Callum Hobbs and Tyson Hogan performed well for the Roos.

Hobbs and Timothy Crick kicked four goals each.

EFFORT: Josh Beddison kicks six goals for Kalkee on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

KALKEE showed why they are a top-two side after they smashed Pimpinio by 140 points at the weekend.

Only four points separated the two teams at the first change, but the Kees dominated the second quarter, booting nine goals to Pimpinio’s one.

Joshua Beddison and Steve Schultz both kicked a bag, contributing to the side’s win.

Pimpino coach Matthew Everett said he was disappointed with the lost.

“After the first quarter we were right in the game, but then concentration went out the window and our accountability dropped.

“Kalkee is a good side and when you give a good side an opportunity, they make you pay on the scoreboard.”

Everett said the Tigers failed to bounce back after a poor second quarter.

“The boys battled hard in the second half but that quarter had hurt us too much,” he said.

Hesaid Alex Hill andTodd O’Connor were among the side’s best.
