A quiet weekend on Sydney beaches? Don’t you believe it. Crikey hears reports of violence on the North Shore. Locals wishing to remain anonymous say there was trouble at the Harbord Diggers club over the weekend – ethnic trouble.

Some lads were called in from the nearby “Harbord Hilton” – the Harbord Beach Hotel – to sort out the mess. They were ambushed in the Harbord Diggers car park by gang members wielding nunchakus – and a mace.

It’s not the first time there’s been trouble of the sort in the areas. An ethnic based gang calling themselves the Gordon Freedom Fighters caused havoc at school parties for a while – until one night a group of parents organised a do in a cul-de-sac, boxed their cars in when they crashed and let the rugby boys go to work.
