Slain NSW bikie's father fought killer

The father of a Comancheros motorcycle gang member who was gunned down in Wollongong has described the moment he confronted his son's killer with a garden stake.

Slobodan Janceski's 32-year-old son Darko was shot three times and killed by a motorcyclist in the front yard of the Janceski family's Berkeley home in April 2012.

Matthew Paul Wiggins, 28, is on trial in the NSW Supreme Court charged with murder, alongside Robert Nikolovski, 43, who accused of being an accessory.

Mr Janceski was at home when his son was shot and raced outside.

On Wednesday he told the NSW Supreme Court how he risked his life to confront the gunman while armed only with the metal garden pole.

'I hit him on the helmet and the helmet flew away and the glasses as well,' Mr Janceski said, adding that the assailant was wearing a balaclava.

'Then he jumped from the bike and the bike fell down ... we wrestled and somehow the bar was dropped or he took it off (me).'

Mr Janceski, a 65-year-old retired carpenter and former boxer who stands at just 162.5cm tall, said he then managed to hit the assailant's handgun to the ground and throw the weapon away with 'a solid chuck'.

However his opponent grabbed his hair with both hands and kneed him in the face a number of times, before raining punches on his face.

The attacker then rode off on the motorcycle.

'I thought then, and I'm still thinking, he was trained well in kickboxing,' Mr Janceski said.

The father, who became emotional at the mention of his son's death, said afterwards he was treated in hospital with fractures, bruises and cuts to his face.

The Crown alleges Nikolovski arranged for his close friend Wiggins to kill Darko Janceski following a long-running feud.

It's alleged both Nikolovski and Wiggins believed Mr Janceski was behind the 2011 murder of Nikolovski's brother Goran Nikolovski.

The trial continues.
