A man who killed his ex-partner's Tinder date in a frenzied stabbing attack at a restaurant admitted in a statement of apology that he struggled to say sorry because he was "still angry at what happened to me".

Alexander Villaluna has pleaded guilty to murdering Keith Collins, 53, and seriously wounding his estranged wife Jovi Pilapil, 39, after discovering them on a dinner date on March 30, 2016.

According to an agreed statement of facts, Villaluna had bought a hunting knife and camouflage from Surplus City in Parramatta three weeks earlier, and warned Ms Pilapil that she was lucky he was "letting [her] breathe".

"Please don't force me," he said in an email.

The mayor of NSW? How Gladys Berejiklian lost control of her own narrative - The Sydney Morning Herald

Gladys Berejiklian took a detour from her schedule on Wednesday to open, of all things, a pie factory. As it turns out it wasn't any old pie factory. It was the new Kingsgrove facility for Garlo's Pies, owned by the family of former rugby league star Sean Garlick.

More importantly for the Premier, it was an opportunity to try to put a positive spin on one of the infrastructure projects giving her government a headache due to community opposition: the $17 billion WestConnex motorway.

Damning report into NSW schools finds 'unacceptable' mistreatment - The Sydney Morning Herald

For nearly six months, Nicole Lim says her son Carlos Blanch, who has autism and is non-verbal, came home from school every week with cuts and bruises on his arms and legs.

The first time it happened, in March this year, Ms Lim went straight to the principal to ask for better supervision for Carlos, 11, who is in year 5.

State of Origin: NSWRL make crucial call on next Blues coach - Fox Sports

4144439 state-of-origin-nswrl-make-crucial-call-on-next-blues-coach-fox-sports

LAURIE Daley’s replacement is set to be named by Christmas after NSW Rugby League retained its policy of having a full-time State of Origin coach, leaving the door ajar for Des Hasler and Michael Maguire.

NSWRL chief executive David Trodden said the board on Friday opted against having an NRL club-affiliated coach working part-time to avoid selection conflicts of interest.

Trodden would not rule out sacked Canterbury coach Hasler’s appointment to the Blues, despite it appearing unlikely given Bulldogs chairman Ray Dib is on the NSWRL board.

“That’s unhelpful to talk about specifics and to rule anyone in or out,” Trodden told reporters on Friday.

“The board will deal with every candidate on individual merit, so it’s really premature to speculate about candidates before you know whether any of them even have an interest in putting their hand up.”

Spring heatwave to hit eastern Australia this weekend - 9news.com.au

4144445 spring-heatwave-to-hit-eastern-australia-this-weekend-9news-com-au

The pool of hot air will bring possible record heat. (Weatherzone)

Weather warnings have been issued across the country as bizarre and dangerous conditions loom nation-wide.

From cyclonic winds to record breaking heat, every single Australian state is on alert.

Searing spring heat has enveloped New South Wales and Queensland. Records are set to tumble as temperatures soar to 40C across both states. New South Wales has never seen a 40C day in September, so this has the makings of an all-time heat record.

Topping the heat pack are towns in northern New South Wales and inland Queensland. Bourke, Tibooburra and White Cliffs are all looking down the barrel of 40C, while south-western corners of Queensland could hit 41C.

Our capital cities are not immune either. Sydney could soar 13C past its September average to hit 33C on Saturday, while Penrith could see 37C.

Brisbane is forecast for...

NSW crops desperate for rain as big dry stretches on - ABC Online

4144457 nsw-crops-desperate-for-rain-as-big-dry-stretches-on-abc-online

Three months of below average rain across large swathes of New South Wales is resulting in a continued downgrading of crops.

Many agronomists now believe that 40 per cent of the yield potential has now been lost with the situation compounded by widespread frosts in many regions.

Cowra agronomist Peter Watt of Elders said crops in his region were just holding on.

"We need rain for some of our farmers to get out of jail this year," he said.

"Unfortunately, the forecast is for extremely hot conditions coming up over the weekend and that is the last thing we need.

"What has probably saved many farmers in this region is the fact they are not just cropping but they have sheep and cattle providing them with income from meat and wool."

Northern crops hit hardest

Further north of Cowra, between Narromine and Warren, the situation is even more desperate.

Nationals MP Trevor Khan has made an emotional plea to the New South Wales Parliament on the introduction of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill, revealing his terminally ill father asked to die.

The bill, which has been prepared by a multi-party working group over the past two years, requires that patients must have a terminal illness, have less than a year to live, be over the age of 25 and experiencing severe pain.

Patients would also need to be residents of NSW and would be assessed by several independent medical practitioners and psychiatrists.
