Principals fear Milking it for real in the pub unstable pupils By Sue Newman

By Myles Hume Mid Canterbury principals fear their staff and pupils could be in danger as children with extreme behavioural issues may be integrated into Ashburton classrooms next year. It comes as the Ministry of Education confirmed yesterday the closure of McKenzie Residential School, in Christchurch, and Salisbury Residential School, in Nelson, as of January 27, potentially planting children who may be violent, emotionally disturbed and criminally minded back in to mainstream schools. The children with severe behavioural issues would then be assisted by a wrap-around service which Mid Canterbury principals are “unsure” about. Alternatively, the pupils could be transferred to Halswell or Westbridge Residential Schools, which are the two remaining special schools in the country. But Mid Canterbury principals don’t believe their teachers have the capability to deal with “extreme behaviour”, and remain cautious

about how the wrap-around system of putting more support staff into schools could work. Ashburton Borough principal Sam Winterbourn, who taught for 30 years at McKenzie School, said he was “appalled” by the Government’s decision. “These teachers are not prepared to handle children like this,” he said. Mr Winterbourn said these pupils were at the residential schools for a reason and children were sent there when all avenues had been explored to keep them in mainstream education. Allenton School principal Graham Smith said he had dealt with three children with severe behavioural issues in his career, he said teachers had learned about this kind of behaviour but did not have the experience to handle it. “We are going to have teachers and teacher aides who are going to be in the front line. “They need 24-hour assistance and they only come to school for six hours and we all know there are more than six hours in a day.” After 365 submissions, Education minister Hekia Parata said it was

“a difficult decision” to close the schools, however it was an opportunity to bring these children closer to home. “We can link local services with the remaining residential provision to achieve more personalised and high quality approach for children and their families.” However, Mr Winterbourne said principals were left in the dark with the wrap-around system which the ministry claims will allow more intensive supervision. “There’s going to be a hiatus between these children coming in and the wrap around service being implemented,” Mr Winterbourn said. “There is no timeline to tell me when this is going to be put in place. “If it’s three years, we have three years with children coming to the point where the school can’t cope any longer.” Hampstead School principal Peter Melrose questioned the Ministry of Education’s decision, saying it was an unproven system. It was now the ministry’s focus to create individual plans for the pupils to be reintegrated into mainstream education for 2013.

Perry proof locals can succeed By Erin Tasker When Tim Perry signed a Super 15 contract with the Blues, he showed young Mid Canterbury players that they didn’t need to leave town to make it to the big time. Mid Canterbury Rugby Union (MCRU) chief executive Ian Patterson said Perry’s success in such a short space of time showed that there was a real pathway for young Mid Canterbury players who remained in the district, but wanted to make it big in New Zealand rugby. All too often, promising young rugby players left the district as teenagers, believing they needed to if they wanted to become an All Black, or play Super Rugby. “This shows that you don’t have to leave town as a 15, 16 or 17-year-old. You can stay in your school or home environment and if you are good enough there’s still the opportunity to crack it,” Mr Patterson said. Perry started his rugby career at the Rakaia Rugby Club in under-8s and played for St Andrew’s College upon going to boarding school in Christchurch as

Tim Perry a teenager, but when he returned to Mid Canterbury he again turned out for Rakaia. His last stint for Rakaia was in 2010, after which he moved to Marlborough with the aim of making the Tasman Makos. Last year he made the Tasman Bs, and this year he became a regular in the number one jersey for the Tasman Makos in the ITM Cup. Mr Patterson said Perry had been in the Mid Canterbury system for some time before his move to Tasman and it was great to see that he’d lived up to the potential he’d always had.

“From a Heartland union’s point of view, not just Mid Canterbury, we can only ever these days see ourselves as a feeder union for the higher levels. So it’s really good from a union’s point of view to have guys that are able to come through with a union like Mid Canterbury and then step up to starter status with an ITM province,” Mr Patterson said. He described Perry as big but mobile, with good skills. He said he was a well-rounded player for the modern game with good technique. “He’s always had a lot of ability but it takes a bit of application to get to that level,” Mr Patterson said. In his last year playing for Rakaia Perry played mainly at number eight, but made the Mid Canterbury squad as a prop and caught peoples’ eye in the Heartland Championship. He made the Heartland Squad and was one of three players nominated for the title player of the year. His potential was clear early on though, as he made the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ team in his last year at St Andrews, in 2006. Perry’s Rakaia feats, P22

When Greg Russell picks up his girls and heads to the Tinwald Tavern on Saturday night he’ll attract more than a few admiring glances. Greg’s girls are easy on the eye. They’re leggy brunettes, beautifully groomed and there’s no other way to say it – they’re busty. But the downside for Greg is that the girls he’ll be toting are working girls who’ll be in the tavern plying their trade rather than dealing in intellectual conversation. The pair will be a star attraction on Saturday night for all the right reasons – they’re the stars in the Tinwald Tavern’s cow milking competition, an event that has the distinction of being the only one of its kind in the world. Cow 800 and cow 918 have been chosen for their roles because of their quiet, easy going dispositions. Out of a herd of hundreds they stood out, owner Greg Russell said. And in the lead up to Saturday’s competition, the pair have been hand milked daily, fed extra rations and before being loaded into the horse float for their trip to town, they’ll be carefully handwashed. They’ll arrive early to settle in before the event starts and Greg will be on hand to make sure they feel comfortable on the job. He’s not worried about the effect on the cows of a pub full of rowdy patrons. “When they’re in the shed here the radio’s up loud so noise won’t be a problem. They might do a bit of kicking when someone tries to milk them but that’s all part of the fun.” The challenge on the night is to draw as much milk from the udder in one minute and the previous challenge’s winner, dairy farm worker Leanne Williamson, will be back to defend her title. Tavern manager Trevor Whiting said about 12 names are in the milking bucket now, with more entries likely to come on the night. It’s a great spectator sport, he said, and one that last time it was held, attracted international interest. “Not everyone manages to get milk out of the cow and unless you know what you’re doing it’s pretty hard. We’ve got the distinction of being the only pub in the world that does this inside,” he said. Anyone who’s been inside a cow shed knows that milk is not the only liquid flowing when a cow is inside, but to protect the tavern carpet tarpaulins will be lining the temporary cow bail. The tavern cow milking starts at 8pm on Saturday and is anticipated to run for about two hours to allow the cows a break between milking attempts. The event was last held two years ago. And when the event’s over and the Photo Kirsty Graham 011112-KG-013 girls have had their moment in the Dairy farmer Greg Russell gives cow 800 a hand milk test drive ahead of Saturday night’s cow milking com- spotlight, it will be back to the farm and back out with the herd again. petition in the Tinwald Tavern.

Novopay teacher headaches continue By Myles Hume The Novopay system is still causing headaches for Ashburton schools. As the fifth round of pay slips were rolled out on Wednesday night, teachers once again awoke to shonky bank balances since the $29 million system was introduced in August. Although tempers are still high, some schools say they have noticed a drop in the number of mistakes. But Novopay staff still remain an issue. Ashburton College went from 40 mistakes in the first week of payments, down to five this week. “We are still battling issues but we are not having the same volume of errors,” said Ashburton College accountant Andrea Matthews. “They (Novopay staff) seem kind and sound like they are understanding, but nothing happens. The words are there but the actions are not.” Hampstead School principal Peter Melrose said there were ongoing problems, but it was the way Novopay went about rectifying its problems that had him frustrated.

An email sent by the Ministry of Education read: “The ministry policy is that all Crown debts are to be recovered as soon as possible, regardless of who was at fault of the error.” “That kind of tone doesn’t really go down too well with me, especially since the fault is not ours,” Mr Melrose said. Allenton School principal Graham Smith said the school was paying a teacher out of its reserves because Novopay still had not fixed previous payment issues on top of the latest round of wages. “We have a teacher aide who is dependent on money ... she is struggling to get groceries.” In a press release last week, Ministry of Education secretary Lesley Longstone said the ministry have employed more people to deal with data entry, communications, to visit schools and help train staff on the system. “The Novopay system is paying the vast majority of staff correctly. However, the Ministry acknowledges there are issues that must be addressed,” Ms Longstone said.

Neighbour input for park’s new changing rooms People living near Argyle Park are about to be asked their thoughts on a new building that is planned for their neighbourhood. The Ashburton District Council plans to improve sports facilities in the park by building a new change room and demolishing the old yellow shed that has been an eyesore for the park’s eastern neighbours for years. The council plans to build a new changing facility near the park’s toilet block and water treatment facility and this will be sited in a way that minimises its impact on neighbours’

park views. Consultation on the new complex is about to begin and the council intends to spread its consultation net wider than to just the neighbours immediately opposite the site. The change room and storage building is anticipated to cost $60,000, but it will be extended to include a room the Mid Canterbury Football Association wants to build for its own use. It is anticipated the new change facility will be completed before the start of the 2013 football season.

Tortie-tabby cat Jasmine-Lily, who went missing for five weeks and returned this week, was checked out yesterday by vet Jade Hackney.

• Tinwald sale report

Cat gets a helping hand

New season lambs are beginning to appear at the Tinwald saleyards. A small line-up of new lambs greeted buyers on Tuesday, where large spring lambs fetched $122128, medium lambs $114-121 and light lambs $96-113. A large yarding of prime hoggets, with prices firming on last week. Larger hoggets made $122-128, medium hoggets $114-121 and light hoggets $90-113. Prime ewes were large in number, with prices remaining firm. Larges ewes made $98-116, medium ewes $80-97 and light ewes $6079. Large prime wethers made $90-100 and medium wethers $60-89. A large yarding of ewes and lambs at foot also sold, with prices from $50-60.

By Myles Hume When Jasmine-Lily was returned five weeks after she went missing, her owner Amy Duder was concerned her beloved cat may not survive. Jasmine-Lily was sick, so sick that her bones were prominent and her owner was concerned about the infectious diseases her unvaccinated cat could have caught. However, a story that featured in the Guardian on Tuesday has caught the attention of the community, as Ashburtonions offered messages of support for Ms Duder and her cat. So when news came on Wednesday that Jasmine-Lily

would receive free treatment from Canterbury Vets courtesy of the Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter, Ms Duder, who struggles to make ends meet week-to-week, said she “couldn’t believe it”. If treatment went well for the Tortie-tabby cat, Royal Canin, a leading pet food brand based in Auckland, has promised to give Jasmine-Lily a month’s supply of cat food that will help with her recovery. “It means everything to me, I’m overwhelmed that they would do this for me,” she said. “They all read your story and wanted to help which is so great because Jasmine-Lily isn’t back to full health yet.” Mid Canterbury Animal Shelter

president Dawn Elezabeth Norn said she wanted to help Ms Duder who would have struggled to pay for the consultation otherwise. Yesterday, Jasmine-Lily was checked out by Canterbury Vets vet Jade Hackney who said she was “remarkably well”, pointing to the fact she was only 300g lighter since her last check up and had put on weight since she was returned. However, she did catch fleas along the way and she will have to be treated along with Ms Duder’s five other cats, but it was minor compared with the potential illnesses she could have contracted. “She’s eating normally, her teeth are absolutely perfect, she’s showing good signs,” Ms Hackney said.

Rosebank staff notch up milestone Ferns take out a thriller By Sue Newman When you love what you do, it’s easy for the years to slip away, say three women who have been on the Rosebank Resthome payroll since the complex opened 20 years ago. Jan Fitzgerald, Yvonne Harrison and Annette Brown were among the first recruits when the resthome opened its doors and back then it was a very different place to the multi-level care facility it has become today. On day one, the three were among a team of new employees charged with helping the first influx of residents settle into the new resthome and for everyone, those early days became a giant learning exercise Ms Fitzgerald said. She described the original Rosebank as a “cute little place where staff became friends with one another”. That sense of intimacy was more difficult to maintain as the facility grew, she said. When she came to Rosebank after several years in home care, she signed on intending to stay for there years; 20 years later she’s still there and loving her job Photo Kirsty Graham 011112-KG-005 as much as she did on day one.

get to know the families of patients well too,” she said. For her the best part of her work is palliative care. “Caring for the dying is the most rewarding work of all.” During the 35 years she’s worked night shift as a care assistant, Mrs Harrison says she’s never wanted to swap her job. “I started here as a care assistant 20 years ago. I love it, love the job and love the elderly. I have a real empathy with them, they really do something for me. I’m so lucky to be working in a job I love and with people I love working with.” In 20 years the job of a care assistant has changed significantly, she said. Today the job of a carer is all about rest home residents rather than about meals and washing. Miss Brown’s work colleagues describe her as the quiet soldier of the long serving team. “She’s cleaned here for 20 years and she comes in every day and does the same job. It takes a very special person to do that and the residents just love her,” Ms Fitzgerald said. For her, coming to work each day is a pleasure, Miss Brown said. “I just like helping people and I love the residents and the staff here; it’s a great environment to work in.” by David Fletcher

By Dana Johannsen The Silver Ferns will head into their summer break pretty content with their progress this season, after last night capping off their Quad Series with a strong 48-43 win over Australia. Hammered by 20 goals less than two weeks ago, the New Zealand side rediscovered the form that saw them claim the Constellation Cup back in September, pulling off a remarkable turnaround to finish the season with thet upper hand over the Diamonds. In the five meetings between the two fierce rivals this year, the Ferns have won three of them. Regardless of the outcome last night, Australia had the Quad Series wrapped up, with

a sizeable advantage in goal differential. But it was still a must-win game for the Silver Ferns as they looked to take some all important confidence and momentum into next year after a wobbly Quad Series. Having finished their season with their most convincing win over Australia of the year – albeit not as emphatic as the Diamonds record win in Sydney – the Ferns will largely be forgiven for their mid-season stumbles. The Ferns had to recover from a bumbling start, but eventually recovered, and stretched their lead out to seven early on in fourth quarter, before the expected Aussie fightback came, with the visitors scrapping for every ball on defence. They came as close as four goals, before New Zealand pulled away again to secure a five-goal win. - APNZ

Fireworks danger warning By Erin Tasker Fireworks can be a lot of fun, but they can also be dangerous if misused, Ashburton’s fire safety officer Sheryl Reveley says. Fireworks go on sale today, with sales restricted to just the four days before Guy Fawkes – which is celebrated on November 5. The reduced selling time is among the changes introduced in recent years with the aim of reducing fireworks related issues, and they appear to be working, Mrs Reveley said. She said that, combined with the cost of the fireworks and the increased number of public fireworks displays, had meant that Guy Fawkes had passed relatively incident free for firefighters in recent years. Mrs Reveley said the New Zealand Fire Service preferred people to attend public organised events where possible, as that reduced the risk of things going wrong in peoples’ back yards. “If people are looking at using fireworks at home then always aim them away from people and any trees or structures where they

could cause a problem if they landed on them,” she said. “In the past stray works have been the cause of fires when they have gone into peoples’ guttering or things like that, so people need to be aware of that. “If they do go astray there is the potential for them to set things on fire.” If people were planning to use fireworks at home they should ensure they had a water supply at the ready, potentially having a garden hose connected nearby. Instructions should always be followed and if it was too windy, fireworks should not be used. Such steps would ensure another safe Guy Fawkes in Mid Canterbury. “We only need for a really windy night and that could all change,” Mrs Reveley said. Pets also needed to be thought of and possibly locked inside, or in the garage, when fireworks were being let off, as the sound could spook animals. If you do want to buy fireworks, they’ll be on sale from today. The Warehouse will be among those stocking them, with their fireworks packages ranging in price from $9.99 to $199.99.

Big weekend at aviation museum The best of vintage aircraft will be on display this weekend when the Ashburton Aviation Museum holds an open weekend.

The open weekend is being used as both a publicity exercise and a membership drive says museum committee member Bob Maxwell, with the museum

of the rare static aviation displays housed in the museum and to check out aircraft and to talk to aviation enthusiasts, he said.

Firefighter dad’s plea - no more violence By Don Farmer The family of bashed Martinborough man Peter Fisher have made a plea to locals not to take matters into their own hands. Brian Fisher, father of the injured volunteer firefighter, said yesterday he and his wife Noeline have become aware of “talk of violence” against the alleged offender. “We do not want any more violence against anyone and we ask

that it is left to the police and the courts to do their duty,” he said. Mr Fisher said he and his wife had also been told that the family who called on his son’s help immediately before he was beaten early on Sunday morning have been “receiving some unfounded criticism”. “Most of that criticism is from people with very little knowledge of the facts and, in our opinion, the family did exactly what 90 per cent of people in the community would,

and should, be able to do,” he said, which was ask a friend or member of the community for help. Peter Fisher was bashed after he stepped in to help a group of young people socialising in a house in Broadway St remove an unwelcome visitor. He was assaulted and taken by ambulance to Wellington Hospital in a critical condition, then admitted to the intensive care unit. Mr Fisher has since been slowly improving. His father said yester-

day that his son was now conscious and talking, although speech was difficult because of the injuries to his mouth and neck. “Peter is progressing well, he is a very strong lad but he is not out of the woods yet,” Mr Fisher said. He said the hospital staff had been excellent in his son’s treatment and care. Martinborough fire chief Garry Jackson was making a return visit to Peter Fisher’s bedside yesterday. Mr Jackson said he had been

shocked on his first visit to see how badly beaten Mr Fisher was. “I would have walked passed the bed and never had recognised him,” he said. Mr Jackson agreed with Brian Fisher’s comments about criticism of those at the house when trouble arose. He had himself been summoned by townspeople who perceived trouble. Usually that meant doing a drive-by to check the situation out

Former Mid Canterbury rugby representative Geoff Frew is growing a mo for cancer. This month marks Movember – a national campaign encouraging men to grow moustaches in support of men living with cancer and raising money for men’s health around the world. Geoff, who played 154 games for the province, can personally relate to Movember after beating a lengthy battle with prostate cancer two years ago. In fact, two years to this day , just weeks before his 50th birthday, Geoff underwent intensive robotic surgery in a format carried out only three times in New Zealand. But although the surgery was rare, his surgeon, according to Geoff, was world class. “I questioned him a lot and put him under the microscope several times ... that’s for sure. “I told him I won’t be a guinea pig, but he said he had carried out the procedure numerous times overseas so that was good and the whole operation went really well,” Geoff said. Movember is also an ideal opportunity to raise awareness and for Geoff, his battle with prostate cancer has inspired him to be an ambassador and spread the word around the district. And to this day Geoff admits he still has minor problems post operation, but as his wife Sonya reminds him every day – he is lucky to be alive. “It’s something I had to deal with and I dealt with it. No-one wants to hear the words you have it, so my best advice is do everything you

can to prevent it. “My wife and two girls have just been amazing – my wife in particular has been brilliant,” he said. “She (wife) just keeps saying, ‘Geoff you’re alive – now get on with it’. “It’s the old saying, you couldn’t do it without them – but I really believe in that - they have been there with me every step of the way and the support has been incredible,” Mr Frew said. Geoff, who is now a Prostate Cancer NZ Ambassador, has joined with the Ashburton Cancer Society and wants to encourage Mid Canterbury men to man up and “do what you have to do”. He believes a long aging myth is at fault for deterring men away from regular check-ups. “I’m going to be straight up with you – a lot of guys I have spoken to still believe they will get the old finger if they go for a check and I think that’s what scares them away. “A lot of specialists also say don’t go and get checked until you are 40, but I’m saying, why not – go and get checked early and it gives you something to work with . . . afterall, it’s only a quick blood test,” he said. TV personality and sports commentator John McBeth, who is fronting the Movember campaign, will be teaming up with Geoff later this month at a men’s health seminar at the Sinclair Centre, in Ashburton. A Prostate Cancer specialist will also be in attendance and Mr McBeth is urging men to book the event in their diaries and get along. This year’s theme for Movember is, Movember & Sons. *To register go to – movember. com.

but now he would be wary of going out alone to suss out situations, the fire chief said. He would rather have people who felt there was an emergency situation “put up the siren so the whole brigade could turn out”. The fire chief said brigade members had gathered to speak about the incident in the company of a critical stress expert. “But we will have further debriefs, that’s for sure,” he said. - APNZ

Murder charge

‘Man up and do what you have to do’ By Sam Morton


A man has been charged with the murder of Rae Portman, whose body was found on a south Auckland four months after her family reported her missing. Paraire Hori Te Awa, also known as ‘Friday’, was initially only charged with kidnapping but the additional charge of murder was laid yesterday. In Papakura District Court yester his lawyer Peter Kaye did not apply for an interim name suppression order to be extended and it expired yesterday. Te Awa, 32, raised his eyebrows and mouthed words to supporters in the public gallery when he appeared briefly in the dock before being remanded in custody. He will appear again later this month. -APNZ

Most NZ men do put family above beer and work survey finds

Geoff Frew is living proof there is life after prostate cancer. Geoff is taking part in Movember and as a Prostate Cancer NZ Ambassador is urging all men to ‘Man up and do what you have to’.

Despite what they say, most New Zealand men do put family and love above beer and work. Beermaker Speights surveyed New Zealand men around the country to find out what matter to them, with 65 per cent of respondents ratings family as most important. Fourteen per cent of respondents rated love as the most important thing in their lives, followed by children (10.6 per cent) and friends (3.9 per cent). Below that, came work (3.3 per cent) and only 1 per cent of respondents said beer was the most important part of their lives. Of the 504 men surveyed, 97 per cent said they would pay the correct amount when buying from an honesty box. Eighty-four per cent said they would help a stranded motorist on

the road, but in Otago only 76 per cent said they would stop to help. The best regions to be stranded in a car were Waikato, Nelson and the West Coast with 100 per cent of respondents in these regions saying they would stop and help. But, while most New Zealand men would stop to help a stranded motorist, only half of the respondents would offer to help their neighbour build a deck. If New Zealand men were faced with last-minute tickets to an All Black game but had already made previous arrangements with their wife and her friends, just over a quarter would choose to go to the game. Southland men were the only ones to pick going to the game ahead of the previous commitment. - APNZ

Frustrations aired at inquest A changing OUR VIEW

of the guard By Coen Lammers



he 2013 Super 15 season will see a changing of the guard as far as Mid Canterbury players are concerned. The selection of Tim Perry into the new Auckland Blues squad was a bolt out of the blue for many in the district, but others will have seen the young prop’s rise to fame. While Perry is taking the step up to a whole new level, All Black Adam Thomson is reaching the twilight of his career. Thomson was not named in any of the New Zealand Super 15 squads and is likely to head overseas. At the time of writing this, Thomson had not announced which country will be hosting him next year and All Blacks coach Steve Hansen this week joked that the former Tinwald local may not even know himself yet. Interestingly, Hansen picked Thomson for the end of season tour to Europe, in contrast to previous All Black coaches who ignored players who head off-shore. Hansen’s decision to take Thomson to the northern hemisphere is a commentary on how he values his years of loyal duty. While Thomson deserves to be on the tour based on his recent value, the same cannot be said for Ali Williams who barely has played in the past few seasons. Taking him to Italy and Britain can only be judged as a junket. As old Ashburton warhorse

The inquest into the CTV deaths has heard of frustrations caused by delays and chaos in the hours after the catastrophe. The Coroner’s inquest in Christchurch is investigating the deaths of victims of the CTV building collapse on February 22 last year, killing 115 people. A demolition contractor has told the inquest that he was frustrated by the efforts of untrained rescuers. “There were some horrible sights. Bodies were being placed in body bags,” Alan Edge of Southern Demolition told the inquest yesterday. He said many people had formed

human chains on top of the collapsed building to remove debris. Mr Edge considered this was ineffective and he was frustrated that he was unable to use his heavy machinery. It was unclear who was in charge. People seemed to obey the most confident sounding person. Mr Edge was also frustrated when Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) staff told him not to use his heavy machinery, although at one stage all activity ceased to allow for an amputation. Mr Edge was cross-examined by the counsel assisting the coroner about his experience in removing people from collapsed buildings.

He acknowledged he had experience in removing rubble, but not bodies or injured people. He said his digger drivers were so experienced they could wipe a desk clean without scraping it. “No one was listening to the jokers with common sense and motivation to get people out,” Mr Edge said. Other witnesses have told the inquest that the rescue operation slowed down after USAR staff took over. Earlier yesterday Christchurch City Council senior manager Jane Parfitt, the Civil Defence controller on February 22, told the inquest that it took two hours for an engi-

neer to fill out forms at the council offices before he went to the collapsed CTV building, and that was too long. The engineer had listening equipment, vital to the rescue operation. Ms Parfitt attributed the delay to tightened health and safety requirements after the Boxing Day earthquake. The head of Civil Defence in Christchurch, Murray Sinclair, told the inquest that he doubted an engineer had spent two hours filling out forms. Mr Sinclair said it was possible engineer Lew Pickering had been required to wait until a decision was made about allocating

resources. He would have been required to fill out two forms. Mr Sinclair described how Civil Defence was largely manned by council staff. The city council has responsibility for the city and environs, and the regional council had a region-wide oversight. In cross examination Mr Sinclair was asked how emergency staff would know of the resources available to them. Mr Sinclair said police had a liaison person so that technical equipment could be made available, but it would still rely on a request. The inquest continues today. - apnz

Appealing Chris King is also heading into the autumn of his rugby career, Tim Perry will soon be carrying the torch for the local rugby community. His rise to Super 15 fame has not been a sudden elevation after the 24-year-old worked his way through the Heartland competition, the Tasman B team before making a name for himself in this year’s ITM cup for the Makos. Perry’s story should be an inspiration for any local club player as he was bashing heads in the Watters Cup only two seasons ago. In a few weeks the keen hunter will be packing down with All Black veteran Keven Mealamu under the tutelage of another New Zealand legend, Sir John Kirwan. The Blues have had several disastrous seasons so both Perry and Kirwan have little to lose. Both can now make their names if they get the Auckland franchise back to its old glory days when it collected five Super trophies. Many in Rakaia would have preferred if Perry had accepted the Crusaders offer to join their wider training squad but they will understand that he chose the faster route to the Super 15 in the Blues squad. Some might even start cheering for the dreaded Jafas. Whether he is playing in blue or not, Mid Canterbury will be following his progress closely and wish him the best of luck.

Police are appealing a High Court decision to throw out charges against 21 Nelson gang members after police tried to falsely prosecute an undercover officer to boost his credibility within the group. Last week Justice Simon France ordered a stay of proceedings against the group, who were facing a range of charges including drug offences and being part of an organised criminal group. The Solicitor General confirmed yesterday that the decision would be appealed. Police were investigating the emerging Red Devils Motorcycle Club, who they suspected were about to become a chapter of the Hells Angels. During a crackdown, dubbed Operation Explorer, police bosses became concerned that an undercover officer known in the gang as Michael Wiremu Wilson was about to be exposed. To strengthen his credibility in the gang, police arranged for a fake search warrant of his lock-up in which they had placed apparently stolen equipment and drug paraphernalia. Police forged an illegible signature of a court deputy registrar, and arrested Wilson. Wilson appeared on several occasions before judges, who all believed they were dealing with a genuine case. Soon after Operation Explorer ended, police sought to have Wilson’s charges withdrawn. Justice France said he believed police thought they were acting legitimately. - APNZ

Sex offence accused named Court to tackle dependency The 37-year-old Kaitaia business man charged with 17 sexual offences, most against boys, has had name suppression lifted. Daniel Luke Taylor was further remanded in custody on the charges until November 15 when he appeared before Judge John McDonald in the Kaitaia District Court yesterday. Taylor’s lawyer, David James conceded that there was little he could say in support of continued name suppression and did not apply for bail. Taylor, who until recently was the vice-president of the Kaitaia Business Association and described his occupation as a consultant, stood impassively in the dock while Mr James argued against the hearing being filmed. The media application was supported by the police and

Daniel Taylor three of Taylor’s alleged victims, with police prosecutor Duncan Coleman saying the fourth had not expressed a view. This was only a remand appearance, Mr James said, and there would be nothing substantive

to report on. It was a situation where the accused’s interests might be given some weight. “Not a great deal will be lost if he is not filmed,” Mr James said. Judge McDonald noted that the accused had already received a good deal of publicity from the print media, and that his photo had been published. Given that, and consent from the police and complainants, which outweighed any concerns raised by Taylor, the application would be approved. Judge McDonald also declined to renew the interim suppression order imposed on Monday last week. Taylor first appeared in Kaitaia on October 25, when suppression was not sought. An order was issued last Monday after Mr James made a late application and after details had

already appeared in the media. “That horse has bolted, hasn’t it? It had bolted before I made the interim order,” Judge McDonald said. Mr James replied that he could take the application no further and the suppression order lapsed. The charges - three of indecent assault on a male aged 16 or over, eight of indecent assault on a boy under 12, four of indecent assault on a boy aged 12 to 16 and one apiece of attempted sexual connection with a boy under 12 and a boy 12 to 16 relate to alleged offences committed between 2007 and early 2011. Detective Eddie Evans from the Child Protection Team in Kaitaia asked anyone with information that could help the investigation to contact him on (09) 408 6520. - APNZ

Chch man who posed as a girl jailed A 73-year-old Christchurch man who posed as a teenage girl on Facebook, friending and convincing a local girl to show him sexualised videos, has been jailed for three years. Dennis John Batchelor appeared in Christchurch District Court

where he was sentenced to three year’s imprisonment, stemming from 30 charges related to making, distributing and possessing objectionable publications. American authorities last year alerted New Zealand’s Internal Affairs Department to Batchelor

posting multiple objectionable images on a Facebook page where he posed as a teenage girl. Batchelor befriended an American man and a Christchurch teenage girl through his online profile. Sexualised videos of the Christchurch girl and of the

American man abusing his twoyear-old daughter were found on Batchelor’s computer. On sentencing Batchelor Judge Paul Kellar said the images were as bad as they could get. His risk of reoffending was high, Judge Kellar said. - APNZ

Lady June Blundell dies aged 91 “Tireless” health and children’s advocate Lady June Blundell, one of the longest-serving members of the Order of New Zealand, has died aged 91. Lady June, the widow of New Zealand’s first resident GovernorGeneral Sir Denis Blundell, received New Zealand’s highest honour in February 1988, a year after the order was established. She died on Wednesday at Auckland Hospital following a short illness. Lady June was a founding patron of the Child Cancer Foundation and helped establish teenage cancer charity CanTeen. She was active with St John throughout her life, and was involved with the Homai College for the Blind, Save the Children New Zealand and the Asthma Foundation. Lady June’s death has opened up a place within the Order of New Zealand, which is limited to 20 living

Lady June Blundell members at a time. Governor -General Lieutenant General Sir Jerry Mateparae said she had dedicated her life to the service of others. “A softly spoken person who never sought the limelight, she worked quietly and tirelessly on behalf of many community organisations and charities. “On behalf of my wife Janine and

my family, I extend my deepest sympathies to Lady June’s family at this sad time.” Prime Minister John Key said Lady June made a significant contribution to New Zealand in her own right. “She was over 90 when she died, and had worked throughout her life to help others. Her tireless service to the country through a wide range of community and welfare work was recognised when she was made a member of the Order of New Zealand in 1988,” he said. “I express my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Lady June at her passing.” Child Cancer Foundation chief executive Sarah Thomson said Lady June’s heart had always been with children with cancer. Her earliest fundraising effort for the foundation was to raise money for a comfortable chair where parents could sit and sleep with their

child while the child underwent chemotherapy treatment. She spoke at many functions, loved attending events, and spent numerous hours on the telephone talking with parents. Ms Thomson said Lady June’s family was very important to her, and her children and grandchildren had shared in her support for the foundation. The foundation had been through many challenges but Lady June was always proud to note it had always stayed true to its mission. Ms Thomson said she was fortunate to spend time with Lady June in recent times, including her 90th birthday in June last year. “She told me then how much she enjoyed spending time with several of the children and parents the foundation supports, as well as talking with Child Cancer Foundation board and staff members.” - APNZ

A new court designed to tackle the underlying causes of crime will save lives and money, say judges. Two new courts opened in Waitakere and central Auckland yesterday will deal with about 100 people with alcohol and drug dependency issues in its first year of operation. Costing $2 million, the courts will take on those who have pleaded guilty, face a term of at least three years in prison and show a willingness to change their ways. They will be put through an intense programme designed to turn their lives around and, if they are successful, their efforts will be taken into account at sentencing. The court has been years in the planning and draws on research from around the world. One of its staunchest supporters is Lifewise court worker Michelle Kidd, who was described at this morning’s opening ceremony as the woman who works with the “mad, the bad, the sad and the distressed”.

Inside her Auckland District Court office, Ms Kidd choked back tears as she pointed to a photo of one of the men she worked with who spent much of his life in and out of the courthouse. A chronic alcoholic, the man was addicted to methylated spirits and died earlier this year. He was still in his 40s and had 39 pages of previous convictions. Ms Kidd holds him up as an example of a man who may still be alive if he had been helped by one of the courts. Judge Ema Aitken of the Auckland District Court and her colleague Judge Lisa Tremewan at Waitakere District Court said there could be many more like the 40-year-old. Judge Tremewan used the example of a chronic drink driver who does their time in prison but comes out with their alcohol addiction untreated. Domestic violence is another potential life-taker that often involves alcohol. Asked whether the courts could be a soft option for offenders, both judges were emphatic that the

real soft option was for prisoners to avoid facing up to demons, do their time and re-enter the life interrupted by prison. But under the new system, judges will have the power to remove offenders from their homes if they believe their environment is not supportive. They will also be closely monitored by experienced case managers to ensure they are not falling off the wagon. Judge Aitken said she and Judge Tremewan have come across prisoners who have said: ‘If I had known it was this hard, I would have opted for prison’.” The other advantage both judges point to is the potential money saved in police time, court cases, prison space and the social costs to victims and their families. She said many of those that come before the courts with alcohol and drugs problems are on benefits but she has met people who have come through the US model and are now proud to be taxpayers. “It gives them the opportunity to learn work and life skills.” -APNZ

YOUR VIEW WOF periods Responding to Murray Smith’s letter about WOF periods, MTA wants to keep WOF checks the way they are because this is the safest option we have available with the tools, equipment and conditions we’ve got. This isn’t about making a quick buck from motorists – during the 90 years MTA has been in business, we’ve realised that keeping people safe on the roads is a pretty solid business model. If you look after people, they tend to come back. Six-monthly WOF checks are the way most New Zealanders make sure their cars are safe. It’s also about making sure the driver behind you has working brakes, or the car in front of you has working indicators. NZTA figures suggest 29 per cent of vehicles going for WoFs fail their tests. However, this doesn’t tell the whole story. MTA data for June/July found 51 per cent of vehicles needed work done on the day they were checked in, to get them through their test. (The most common faults were broken lights, followed by tyres and steering/suspension issues.) Regarding revenue, technicians stand to gain more money from

more time between checks – it’s a lot cheaper to replace a set of worn brake pads than it does to replace brake drums or rotors, and it’s cheaper to rotate tyres for even wear than to get a new set. We also have significantly different driving and environmental conditions here, compared to other parts of the world. For instance, our road surfaces cause a high incidence of windscreen chipping. More time between WOF checks would mean these chips turn into cracks, requiring full replacement, rather than much cheaper chip repairs. However, one major automotive glass company has submitted to Parliament supporting the sixmonthly WOFs, because it’s the safest option, rather than going for the money. Our vehicle fleet is much older, too – and statistics indicate auto-


mobiles get older, the further south you get. Our vehicle testing system has been developed for conditions in this country, for local requirements. A check carried out in a workshop by a trained specialist is going to cover a lot more than one that is carried out when you’ve been pulled over on the side of the road by a policeman, who probably has other things to be doing than checking tyre tread and windscreen wipers. As a driver, you probably want to be driving on the road, rather than standing beside it. If something is working fine, it’s generally a good idea to not to start pulling it to bits. Six-monthly WOF checks keep people safe on our roads. Hamish Stuart, MTA Communications Manager

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, November 2, 2012


JJ didn’t want to stay with his stepfather By Edward Gay Little JJ didn’t want to stay behind with his stepfather, and tried to follow his mother out of the house on the morning that the Crown says the child died. Josephine Lawrence told the High Court at Auckland that she had to leave the house to get an overdraft from her bank to tide her over between benefit payments, while her partner Joel Loffley lay in bed on November 14 last year. Ms Lawrence said her twoyear-old son wanted to come with her but Loffley wanted the boy to stay behind. “I was scared he was going to give me a hiding when I came back because if I didn’t listen or do anything he wanted to do he would give me a hiding.” She said JJ followed her down the hallway but she told him to go back to his stepfather. The Crown says soon after Ms Lawrence left, Loffley slammed JJ in the stomach so hard that his pancreas and liver split in half. The toddler died soon after. Loffley has denied a charge of murder, and told police that JJ fell off the bed.

Giving evidence from behind a screen, Ms Lawrence said shortly before she left the house, she saw Loffley pick JJ up and dump him on the bed as they played “wrestling”. “I said what are you doing? ... JJ was like, he liked it ... He was kind of a bit winded.” She said JJ was fine when she left. Ms Lawrence said she came home a short time later to find JJ being showered by Loffley. She said she was beginning to get the flu and got into bed while Loffley put the child down for a nap. She said Loffley told her JJ had fallen off the bed while he was making it. Loffley brought her a laptop to watch a film on and left the house. He returned a little over an hour later and brought JJ into their bedroom. “He brought JJ into the room and said: ‘I can’t wake him up’. I said: ‘What did you do?’.” Ms Lawrence said she was screaming and yelling and went into shock when she couldn’t wake the child. Despite the efforts of a passing electrician and ambulance

staff, JJ could not be revived. Earlier, Ms Lawrence gave evidence about how her son had broken both of his arms. On one occasion she had found him with a broken arm but was too scared to call an ambulance because she had been drinking and didn’t want to be seen as a bad mum. She told the court that she slept with JJ that night and the next morning took him down to the playground at Okahu Bay before calling an ambulance and pretending that he had fallen off the play equipment. Ms Lawrence also gave details of Loffley using an asthma inhaler as a marijuana pipe and gave it to her son to smoke. “He would give him a pipe and give him a spot.” As Ms Lawrence gave the evidence, some of her family members in the public gallery grew emotionally distressed and had to be helped from the courtroom. She said she never saw Loffley do it, but he told her about it. Ms Lawrence said she saw her two-year-old showing the signs of cannabis use, such as red eyes and sleepiness. The trial continues. - APNZ

Erotica for the thinking person is coming to Ashburton. On November 30 In Flagrante will show for one night at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre. Legendary Kiwi choreographer Mary Jane O’Reilly said she was taking risks with the neoburlesque show. Its title translated as ‘caught in the act’, and it was “witty, satirical and most importantly, daring”. “I’ve seen a lot of boring burlesque which didn’t seem to take enough risks,” she said. “I wanted to shift the genre up a gear and introduce the satiric eye of a contemporary dance choreographer, as well as someone who is interested in the central subject, sex, that is.” In Flagrante is being brought to Nelson, Westport and Ashburton by the Top of the South Arts Touring Consortium. Event centre manager Roger Farr said the show “promises to be a tastefully risqué and comical look at the art of burlesque”. It was touring as part of the Top of The South Touring Arts Consortium’s programme for 2012, of which the event centre was a member. It was supported by Creative New Zealand. “Creative New Zealand’s funding allows the consortium to tour some of the very best New Zealand based performers through our regional venues where without their financial support, the cost would prohibit us doing so,” Mr Farr said. “In Flagrante has toured the North Island to sold-out performances,” he said. The show would follow Bang Crash Tap on November 13 at the centre. Bang Crash Tap was an Australian Dance company which toured the world with its show of mind-blowing dance and percussion. It featured a crew of two amazing tap dancers, a beat boxing champion and one of Australia’s most talented drummers, who performed in anything from tap shoes to flippers. “This is a high-octane fast-moving performance that the younger ones will absolutely love,” Mr Farr said.

The Commerce Commission will keep tabs on pricing for calls between fixed line and mobile phones after Vodafone New Zealand was this week cleared to buy TelstraClear for $840 million. The antitrust regulator has kept tabs on mobile pricing after it imposed lower pricing for ending calls on rival networks, known as mobile termination rates, and will extend that to include calls between fixed lines and cellphones after the Vodafone takeover, it said in a

statement. The regulator will monitor pricing both separately and in bundles, it said. “We already regulate mobile termination rates to minimise the barriers to competition in the mobile market, and monitor mobile pricing in case any barriers are raised by new pricing plans,” Telecommunications Commissioner Stephen Gale said. “We have similar concerns in fixed-to-mobile pricing so will watch and see what fixed-to-mobile pricing plans appear in the market.” The antitrust regulator cleared Vodafone’s acquisition of TelstraClear,

saying the companies’ provision of fixed-line and mobile services to large businesses didn’t cross over, and that TelstraClear-parent Telstra Corp would keep some radio spectrum which could be bought by rival carriers. Gale said the merger would lead to “major changes in the telecommunications sector”, though he said he didn’t expect any anti-competitive pricing arrangements. Auckland-based Vodafone expects to reap savings through ending management and back-office double-ups, and by using TelstraClear’s backhaul and


prehensive income by $55 million due to the Commerce Commission imposing a reduction in mobile termination rates, the fees carriers charge each other for ending a call on a rival network. TelstraClear lifted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation to A$99 million in the 12 months ended June 30, from A$84 million a year earlier. Sales fell 2.3 per cent to A$502 million. Australian parent Telstra booked a A$130 million impairment charge against goodwill for the TelstraClear prior to the sale.  – APNZ

Kiwibank eyes $150m bond offer

US stocks mixed after two-day close Stocks closed mixed yesterday in their first session since Superstorm Sandy forced a historic two-day shutdown of trading. The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 10.75 points to 13,096.46. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose, but barely – up 0.22 of a point to 1412.16. Investors were nervous that a flood of orders after two days of pent-up demand from customers might lead to volatile trading. But stock prices barely budged at the opening, and stayed within a tight range throughout the day. “It’s been very smooth,” Duncan Niederauer, CEO of NYSE Euronext, told CNBC from the exchange floor shortly after the opening bell. “The market-making community is more than staffed enough to be open.” The last time the New York Stock Exchange closed for two consecutive days because of weather was during the Blizzard of 1888 – 124 years ago. Since power was out in large parts of downtown Manhattan yesterday, the trading floor had to be run on back-up generators. Home Depot and Lowe’s rose as investors anticipated more business for the home improvement chains as people made repairs in the aftermath of the devastating storm. Home Depot gained $1.34 to $61.38 and Lowe’s rose $1.02 to $32.38. Netflix soared $9.66 to $79.24 after financier Carl Icahn said he had bought a 10 per cent stake in the troubled company.  – AP

State-owned lender Kiwibank is looking at raising up to $150 million from a subordinated bond offer, after its credit rating was cut a notch by Standard & Poor’s.

The debt sale comes days after S&P cut the credit ratings of Kiwibank and its par-

Sandy death toll at 71 in Caribbean The death toll in the Caribbean from Hurricane Sandy has risen, along with estimates of the damage and destruction it caused, as more assessments roll in. Two new deaths were recorded in Haiti, bringing the total for the country to 54, said Marie Alta Jean-Baptiste, director of the country’s Civil Protection agency. That means the toll for the Caribbean as a whole is now 71. Haitian authorities were able to revise the death toll as rivers recede, allowing officials to travel through the storm-drenched southern peninsula. The death toll had been 52. Jean-Baptiste said yesterday that one of the new deaths occurred during a mudslide and the other was a person who drowned trying to cross a rain-swollen river. There are still 21 people unaccounted for after the storm. Hurricane Sandy drenched the country’s south with more than 500 millimetres of rain in 24 hours. President Michel Martelly has declared a month-long state of emergency. In the Bahamas, the total cost of damage to private property and public infrastructure is expected to reach as high as $US300 million ($A290.74 million), according to a report from the Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility, a risk pool for 16 governments in the Caribbean. That total would be higher than last year’s Hurricane Irene, which caused about $250 million in damage to the island chain east of Florida. The damage estimates do not include tourism losses, which are expected to be significant in the case of Sandy. Minister of Tourism Obediah Wilchcombe has said the country experienced thousands of cancellations. Some resorts were forced to compensate people who were stranded by the storm. In Cuba, the government raised the number of homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy from 130,000 to 200,000.  – AFP

Obama in New Jersey for storm tour

John Okeefe walks on the beach as a rollercoaster that once sat on the Funtown Pier in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, rests in the ocean yesterday after the pier was washed away by superstorm Sandy.

US President Barack Obama has landed in New Jersey to start a tour of areas devastated by flooding triggered by superstorm Sandy. Obama, travelling with the federal government’s emergency relief director Craig Fugate, linked up with New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie for the tour, with his re-election bid still on hold ahead of next week’s national vote. Christie, an outspoken ally of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, has been effusive in his praise of Obama’s handling of the devastating storm, raising eyebrows in his own party. The governor greeted the president at the steps of Air Force One after his short flight from Washington and the two men boarded Obama’s Marine One helicopter for an aerial tour of the disaster area. Obama left the campaign trail on Tuesday to return to Washington to manage the federal relief effort. He has announced plans to get back to campaigning today, ahead of the November 6 election. Romney, who had also mostly suspended campaigning out of sensitivity to storm victims, was back stumping for voters, in Florida, yesterday, albeit on a muted level. “Please, if you have an extra dollar or two, please, send them along and keep the people who have been in harm’s way... in your thoughts and prayers,” he told about 2000 people in a Florida airport.  – AFP

‘Baby box’ opens to save abandoned kids A box in which parents can leave their babies anonymously without any legal risk opened yesterday in a town in north-western Russia – part of an effort that activists hope will save many young lives. The baby box in Kirishi, an industrial town 100km east of St Petersburg, is the 10th such facility in Russia. Experts think that’s just a fraction of what is needed. “Even if only one child is saved that way it will be worth it,” said Tatiana Sobolevskya, deputy chief of the maternity department of Kirishi’s hospital, where the baby box is located. Nikolai Muravlev, a Russian Orthodox priest, came to bless the box and praise it as “island of safety”. Once a baby is put in the box, its door

closes and a nurse gets alerted by a signal. There are no security cameras so parents can leave their babies anonymously. An information stand next to the box appeals to parents to think over their decision and offers contact numbers for assistance. Kolybel Nadezhdy (Cradle of Hope), a non-government organisation that opened the baby box, said it should help attract nationwide attention to the issue. Its head, Yelena Kotova, said more than a dozen babies are abandoned in Russia every month according to official statistics, but she said the real figures are believed to be at least three times higher. Russian police have registered 268 cases of murder of newborn babies by their mothers in 2010-2011, and

Russian media have carried regular reports of babies found in garbage containers, forests or snowdrifts. One of the most recent cases was in St Petersburg in August, when a man found a three-day-old baby in a plastic bag in the bushes. The boy survived and was soon adopted. Kotova said in her home city of Perm in the Ural Mountains, the bodies of two newborn babies were found on a balcony. A woman who lived there with her other children just felt unable to raise another child, she said. In July, a five-day-old girl was left in a baby box in Perm with a note giving her name, Margarita, and her date of birth. Two more babies were left in baby boxes organised by Russia’s Krasnodar region. – AP

• Left to fester The husband of a 180kg US woman has been charged with abuse after her recent death. Authorities are accusing Michael Brooks of allowing Yolanda Reese-Brooks to fester in a bed surrounded by her own waste. The 40-year-old woman died of morbid obesity and other injuries last week. The prosecutor’s office says Brooks was his wife’s primary caretaker after she sustained a crushed pelvis and ruptured bladder in a 2011 auto wreck. Brooks is charged with second-degree abuse of a vulnerable adult. Prosecutor Eric Smith says Brooks’ conduct was “shameful”. Reese-Brooks’ four children now are living with a relative.  – AP

Dated October 20, 1812, the day after Napoleon retreated from the centre of Moscow, it is addressed to his external relations minister HuguesBernard Maret.  – AFP

The fake message read: “How does Hitler tie his shoes? from @ oatmeal.” A link to a humour website was also included with the bizarre message. The 26-year-old cleared up confusion about the remark on Wednesday. “My twitter was hacked, please ignore the last tweet,” she wrote to her 4.5 million followers.  – CM

• Maggots save cat A clumsy cat is recovering after falling 20m from a viaduct. Bengal cat Gus lost a leg when he plunged from the viaduct near Stroud, Gloucestershire. The 18-month-old pet was kept alive by maggots as they nibbled dead flesh away from a broken leg – preventing blood poisoning. He crawled under a trailer to stay hidden and was found six days later when a passing dog walker startled him. Owner Caroline Bush, 39, said: “He went missing for six days and we didn’t know where he was. We got a phone call from someone to say they had found him under a trailer. When I took him out from under the trailer he was missing his front leg as it had all rotted away.” They had Gus’s badly injured front left leg amputated and he has now returned to the family home.  – PA

Syrian rebels pounded by air strikes; 180 dead Syrian warplanes have pounded rebel bastions after a day of fighting that left more than 180 dead, as UN-Arab League peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi urged China to help end the violence. In a week that has seen unprecedented air strikes, regime fighter jets yesterday again pummelled rebel-controlled areas east of Damascus where clashes have raged for months. At least five raids were carried out in the capital’s eastern suburbs, where 30 civilians, including five children, were killed in air strikes and fighting the day before, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. They were among 182 people killed across Syria on Wednesday, said the Observatory, adding more than 36,000 people had now died in the 19-month conflict. Analysts say the regime has boosted air strikes in recent days in a bid to reverse opposition gains on the ground, especially in Syria’s north, and to prevent the rebels from taking control of further territory around the capital. Fierce clashes erupted yesterday in the north-western province of Idlib, where rebels attacked highway military checkpoints and battles raged over the rebel-held town of Maaret al-Numan and the Wadi Daif army base. After the heaviest wave of air strikes yet on Tuesday, on Wednesday a fighter jet hit targets inside Damascus for the first time, dropping four bombs on an

eastern neighbourhood near to an opposition-held suburb. Rebels also claimed responsibility for the killing of a senior air force general, Abdullah Mahmud al-Khalidi, whom state television said had been assassinated by “terrorists”. Visiting Beijing, peace envoy Brahimi said he hoped China would play an active role in helping to bring a halt to Syria’s violence. Greeting Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi in front of reporters,

Beijing did not reveal the content of the talks but reiterated it would push for a “political resolution”. “China has been playing an important and positive role in pushing for the political resolution to the Syrian issue and will continue to work with the international community,” foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said. Brahimi, who succeeded former United Nations chief Kofi Annan after he quit over what he called

China has been playing an important and positive role in pushing for the politcal resolution to the Syrian issue ...

Brahimi said he hoped “China can play an active role in solving the events in Syria”, without elaborating. Both China and Russia have exercised their veto in the UN Security Council to block resolutions aimed at putting more pressure on President Bashar alAssad. Yang thanked Brahimi for his work and said he hoped their discussions – their third in two months – would promote “mutual understanding” and “the appropriate handling of the Syrian issue”.

a lack of international support, is due to present new proposals for resolving the Syria conflict to the Security Council in November. His two-day visit to China, which ends today, came after he met Russia’s foreign minister in Moscow on Tuesday and described the conflict as going from bad to worse. The Syrian uprising, which began in March 2011 as a peaceful protest movement inspired by the Arab Spring, has escalated into an armed insurgency. The Observatory, which relies on a network of activists, lawyers

and medics in civilian and military hospitals, said yesterday the death toll across the country had reached 36,000 people since the start of the conflict. An average of 165 people have been killed per day day since August 1, it said, and the overall toll includes nearly 27,000 civilians and armed rebels and more than 9000 government soldiers. Most of the rebels, like the population, are members of Syria’s Sunni Muslim majority, while Assad’s government is dominated by his Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam. A senior foreign ministry official in Moscow meanwhile said Russia was in contact with Turkey to recover cargo confiscated by Ankara from a MoscowDamascus passenger plane, but that no progress had been made. Turkey scrambled fighter jets earlier this month to intercept the Syrian Air passenger jet, forcing it to land at Ankara’s Esenboga airport and seizing the cargo before the plane was allowed to continue its journey. Turkey said the plane was carrying military equipment but Russia said it was a legal cargo of equipment that Moscow wants back. “The contacts (with Turkey for the return of the cargo) are continuing,” Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said, quoted by Russian news agencies. “As far as I know, no practical action has so far been taken,” he added.  – AFP

Artist Frank Shepherd poses with his creation of US cyclist Lance Armstrong who has been unveiled as this year’s Edenbridge Bonfire Society celebrity guy, during an unveiling for the media in Edenbridge, England, yesterday.

Armstrong to burn in effigy His career is in ruins and now an effigy of Lance Armstrong is about to go up in smoke. The disgraced American cyclist has been chosen as the latest celebrity to be burned in effigy during an English town’s nationally famous Bonfire Night celebrations. Edenbridge in south-east England has built a 9m model

of Armstrong, who was stripped recently of his seven Tour de France titles for doping offences. The effigy, to be burnt this weekend, sports a sign saying “For sale, racing bike, no longer required”. Towns across Britain light bonfires and set off fireworks on November 5 to commemorate

Guy Fawkes’ failed plot in 1605 to blow up Parliament. The bonfires are traditionally topped with an effigy of Fawkes but have been decorated with contemporary figures over recent years. Previous Edenbridge effigies include comedian Russell Brand and soccer star Wayne Rooney.  – AP

Spanish protesters trash shop Spanish anti-austerity protesters have gone on a rampage in clothing chain Zara in Barcelona, breaking glass and hurling mannequins and clothes on to the floor. Around 20 protesters briefly occupied the Zara shop in central Barcelona and some protested inside an Apple Store, an AFP photographer saw.



ARIES (Mar 21st Apr 20th) Venus in your opposite sign and Uranus in your zodiac sign continue their face-toface. This can be an enlivening influence, helping to spice up an existing bond, or it can see you making a surprise move on the dating front. If you do meet someone now it could be an exciting connection. Will it be a lasting one? Ah, that’s something else.

TAURUS (Apr 21st May 21st) The stern responses that have characterised the earlier part of this week can seem less prevalent now, or was it you banging the drum for the things you have been unhappy about? Yet with your ruler opposed still by the erratic energies of Uranus, there can still be a sense that even if you bend over backwards to please, someone will still find fault.

GEMINI (May 22nd Jun 21st) You may have found yourself under a greater amount of expectation earlier this week, particularly around work. It may be hard to pinpoint exactly why, but a more exacting atmosphere has kicked in. Either way, this is now the time to embrace your rewards. Look to do something lively, fun and sociable. There can even be a hint of romance in the air.

CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) Marshalling creativity with productivity is important as you find your way in this new month. And with Venus also in a T Square with Uranus and Pluto, picking a way between the needs of different people, be it at home or in the workplace, may require a deft touch. You may hope that someone would be more sensitive, but might this be wishful thinking?

Greece has unveiled a tough new austerity budget, sparking a call for a 48-hour strike as the EU said there was more work to be done before the recession-hit country can access loan funds needed to stave off bankruptcy. Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras unveiled the 2013 budget to politicians, which also predicts that the economy would shrink by a worse than previously expected 4.5 per cent next year and the country’s debt mountain will swell to 346 billion euros ($A436.35 billion) or 189 per cent of economic output. Adding to the government’s woes, the main Greek union called for a 48-hour general strike starting on November 6 – just 10 days before the country risks sliding into bankruptcy if it fails to secure 31.2 billion euro lifeline from the “troika” of international creditors. Conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras had announced on Wednesday that his government had agreed with the mission of ‘troika’ auditors in Greece on the terms of a new 13.5 billion euro austerity package needed to unlock the next instalment of rescue loans. Accordingly, the finance ministry yesterday introduced a budget and a three-year economic programme pledging the required level of cuts in 2013-14. But ahead of a conference call among eurozone finance ministers, who are due to make a final decision on the payout by November 12, the European Commission yesterday noted that a deal with Greece was technically still pending. “We are continuously narrowing the number of open issues,” Simon O’Connor, spokesman for

O’Connor said Brussels was “confident” of striking an accord “soon”. The Eurogroup of finance ministers also demanded yesterday that Greece “swiftly” solve outstanding issues to clear the way for the loan payment. “We called on the Greek authorities to solve remaining issues so

as to swiftly finalise the negotiations,” said Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker in a statement after a two-hour conference call. Juncker did not elaborate on the issues that remain, but the Greek government plans to introduce further reform bills in parliament next week.

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) You can find yourself itching to do something a bit uncharacteristic. Much as you like to promote an aura of certainty and confidence, you can be more inclined to stick to what you know than people might imagine. However, you might find yourself wanting to rebel, even if in a relatively safe way. A larger-than-life character can be the catalyst for this.

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) If your love life is hunky dory you might want to indulge in some full-on extravagance this weekend, a time when that old maxim ‘Everything in moderation’ can seem profoundly misplaced. And yet if things are less rosy or money matters in general have been unpredictable, the important thing is not to fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) Your love life may be throwing up quite a few possibilities but it all may seem very unpredictable and therefore unsettling. One thing you will not appreciate is the sense that someone you like is making up the rules as they go along. Remember that however alluring someone is, you still have the right to set your ground rules and stick firmly to them.

SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) Perhaps you are finding it hard not to say how you feel. Despite your reputation for secrecy, many Scorpios can be almost painfully blunt, at least in expressing an opinion about others. More sensitive personal issues are likely to be kept closely to your chest but now you may experience someone surprising you with force of their views - about you!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) You may be asked to put your hand in your pocket today and may take this in your stride, especially if it’s for a good cause. However, if there is someone you have been friendly with in the past, don’t necessarily expect this tie to run on without any complications in the future. Any incompatibility, around values as much as cash, can see you start to grow apart.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) If you have a more conservative attitude to life but need to interact with someone who doesn’t, it may prove tricky just now. This could point towards a generation gap in a family tie or it may be at work or in a life situation where you feel someone is failing to take responsibility. Your experience and wisdom can be such an asset though.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) It’s going to be really important to understand your deeper needs around close involvements, your love life and intimacy. These are areas where you can often be rather detached, but the stars are conspiring to ask you to become much more mindful of what’s what. You can charm and beguile, but someone may get hurt. Try to be open.

PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) Sudden compulsions can see you want to comfort eat, hit the shopping mall in earnest or gorge yourself on your most loved confectionary. Or will the need for security see you drawn towards the wrong kind of relationship or romantic diversion? Hard as it may be, this is a time not to get deflected from the longer-term plans you have already laid.

Carter Jones climbs into yellow jersey American Carter Jones of Bissell Pro Cycling has climbed his way into the lead in the Tour of Southland, after winning the 179km stage from Te Anau to the Crown Range, near Arrowtown yesterday. Ashburton’s Hayden Roulston failed to figure after puncturing early. It was a day of mixed fortunes for the Bissell team with Paddy Bevin, who had already won two stages during the week’s racing, forced to withdraw from the Tour due to a lung infection. While that will make retaining the yellow jersey harder for the team during the final two days of the Tour, Jones, 23, is confident his team has the capability to defend the lead and credited his strong climb up the final 3km of today’s stage to a good team effort. “My team-mates worked as hard as they could so with 1km to go, I thought ‘they did all of that work for me so I’ve got to give it a shot’. I’ve got good legs, and it worked out,� he said. Jones now takes a 29 second lead over Node 4-Subaru’s Mike Northey; the biggest lead of this week’s Tour so far. Bissell team manager and former Tour winner Glen Mitchell said whilst it was disappointing to lose Bevin, everything else on yesterday’s stage had gone according to plan. “We wanted to stay hidden as much as we could and save everything for the last 10km to launch Carter into the position where he could challenge for the lead of the race - and we couldn’t have asked for more, it worked out exactly,� he said. “With Paddy not being in for the rest of the Tour, it reduces us to five riders to defend over the next stage. “You have to take this Tour one stage at a time as anything can happen out there, but we’ve got a strong team of motivated riders.� Yesterday’s stage - the longest of the Tour - was decided in the final 3km, but prior to that a group of nine riders, including Pure Black Racing’s James Williamson, did a power of work

Carter Jones will be wearing the yellow tour leader’s jersey as the Tour of Southland continues on today’s stage from Invercargill to Gore. in a break that gained up to a 4 minute lead. The peloton caught the group after it passed through Frankton and with 10km to go there was very little in it. Northey was in the hunt as the ascent to the Crown Range lookout began, but Jones had the legs and the stamina to take line honours, ahead of Southsure Insurance’s Brodie Talbot and PowerNet’s Heath Blackgrove. Jones is the fourth rider to pull on the yellow jersey this week and six riders are now within 2minutes 35seconds of the lead, including former Tour winners Gordon McCauley and Black grove. Tour director Bruce Ross said

this was the sign of a very good race. “It is a very interesting race,� he said. “The lead keeps changing and that, to me, indicates a good race.� The Sprint Ace jersey sits comfortably with Share the Road’s Sam Witmitz, while Joe Chapman (Creation Signs-L&M Group Racing) keeps hold of the King of the Mountain jersey and Taylor Gunman (Pure Black Racing) retains under-23 jersey. Node 4-Subaru leads the Wensley’s Cycles teams classification. Today’s stage covers a 167km route from Invercargill to Gore and Ross believes it will be defining. - APNZ

Biggest twits in sport By Steven Holloway When Quade Cooper was hit with a NZ$50,500 fine and three-game suspension yesterday for his Twitter outburst earlier this year, he was just the latest in a long list of athletes who have struggled to control their tweeting. Racial slurs, homophobic rants, cheating accusations and breaking team rules are all common themes in our bad-boy list of sportsmen who should probably delete their Twitter app. Here are some of the worst Twitter offenders in sport, and the penalties imposed upon them. Suspension - Eliota FuimaonoSapolu During the 2011 Rugby World Cup, Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu made a Twitter post linking the scheduling of the World Cup to slavery, the holocaust and apartheid, after Samoa had three days to prepare for their match against Wales, while their opponents had a week to prepare. Officials accepted an official

apology and decided that no further action was necessary. Later in the tournament when Samoa lost to South Africa Fuimaono-Sapolu tweeted that referee Nigel Owens was “racist� and “biased�, which resulted in him being banned for six months. Undisclosed sum - Kevin Pietersen Kevin Pietersen was fined for criticising Sky commentator Nick Knight on Twitter. Pietersen was docked an undisclosed sum for comments aimed at the ex-England opener during the first test against the West Indies at Lord’s. He wrote: “Can somebody please tell me how Knight has worked his way into the commentary box for tests? Ridiculous.� $3,042 - Antonio Cromartie In August 2009, NFL cornerback Antonio Cromartie was fined by the San Diego Chargers for tweeting that the team was served “nasty food� at a training camp. It may come as no surprise that he quickly moved on to play for the New York Jets. $39,200 - Carlton Cole In April 2011, West Ham

Over a five-day period, Cooper labelled the Wallabies set-up as toxic and later said the environment was “destroying him as a person� and he would turn down test jerseys in the future.

Country lifestyle close to town 102 Bridge Street

Story: Amanda Wright It’s the great kiwi dream. An acre of beautifully manicured lawns, set back in your own private oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of life, yet within a few minutes drive from the centre of town. Practicality and peacefulness, all rolled into one gorgeous property. A Mary Poppins property if you will, practically perfect in every way. Behind a quaint metal gate on Bridge Street, enter past delicate flowering shrubs down a long driveway bordered by trees. A magical entrance to a truly impressive home. The large green lawn is expansive, fringed with a selection of mature and young plantings and trees, a medley of colours and textures. A lifestyle block perfect for those seeking a country living environment, but in a manageable form. The spacious arena also provides a safe environment for a large family with energetic children. The exterior of the home is crisp, a fine blend of country charm with modern luxury, with the exterior plaster cladding a chic grey, with white villa-style verandah posts. The modern lines and practical layout make this home a pleasure. The modern plaster cladding has been carried through as a unique feature of the interior, giving each room a unique texture and depth. Anchored by a gas cooking range, the kitchen has clearly been designed by someone with a passion for cooking. It is arrayed with beautifully plain surfaces, in a deep sea blue, with attractive glass panels in cupboard doors which give an easy reference to where everything is stored. Large spacious living areas with seamless indoor/ outdoor flow make living and entertaining here a breeze. An enclosed outdoor BBQ area invites the possibility of enjoying an intimate dinner amongst a warm summer evening under the setting sun. Consisting of four bedrooms, this spacious home is perfect for a growing family, or presents the opportunity for an office or even an art room or library. The serene environment makes for the perfect location for someone wanting to work from home. The luxurious master bedroom also features a walk in wardrobe and ensuite. Temperature is never an issue in this double-glazed home. Along with many modern luxuries, this home features a heat transfer system and HRV, as well as a log fire for an intimate ambience. Subdivision of this property may be an option in the future, so the choice will be yours to maintain a slice of lifestyle paradise, or cash in on your investment to create two spacious havens. An opportunity like this rarely presents itself, so be prepared to be impressed at the viewing to be held this Saturday. The property will go under auction on 1st December 2012 at 11am onsite (unless sold prior).

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, November 2, 2012

covering Mid Canterbury... It has so much potential

House hunting can be an exciting time, the end of the bottomless pit of renting and the feeling that your payments are finally going toward something you physically own.

Every house has potential, but if the house has more potential than actual positive points, then perhaps consider moving along. Unless you’re a builder by trade or a complete DIY wiz, then the home that requires a lot of work may not be for you. Why live in squalor when you can live in luxury for only a few dollars more?

The most common mistake home buyers make is that they buy with their heart instead of their head. This often means they pay more than they should. The search for a home is a process. Often a long and drawn out one depending on circumstances, but as this is a life changing purchase, it’s one that shouldn’t be made lightly.

Our kiwi culture tends to make us believe that we should do everything ourselves, and avoid paying someone else to do what we could do on our weekends. The initial cost may appear cheap, a real bargain, but the costs associated can soon mount up. The reality is we could end up spending a lot, many years after purchase date, continually up-dating and fixing up the house of potential, throwing more money into the project than what it would have cost to buy the perfect home in the beginning.

Before signing on the dotted line, consider the following key points.

Don’t rush out and buy the first house you like Do you like it, or do you really love it?

Sometimes the homes appear to have great value, but the previous owners never bothered to update the interior in the thirty years of living there. There is a difference between cosmetic touch-ups, and more extensive changes to an interior, such as putting in new kitchen cabinets, flooring, and a new bathroom.

Understanding the difference between ‘it will do’ and ‘it’s perfect’ will lead you in the right direction. A desperate purchase is often the result of rushing to buy a house. It may be because you have already sold you’re home and you’re urgently seeking another, or maybe you’ve just reached the end of your tether and you’re willing to settle.

If you enjoy spending time with friends, relaxing and enjoying the odd holiday on your weekends, then buying a DIY nightmare definitely would not suit your lifestyle. The key to remember is - the less work that you have to do to the home when you move in, the more money for the mortgage, and more money for you to still have a life!

When the pressure of having to find a house is high, purchasing mistakes are more common, so alleviating that pressure will help. Consider living in rental accommodation while you are house-hunting. It will ease the pressure and allow you the time to wait until your dream home becomes available. Once you’ve found the home you desire, don’t forget to check out the neighbourhood. Take a walk through the streets and talk to people. By speaking to people, you can not only get a sense of the friendliness of the community, but also as to whether there are any surprises that no one is going to advertise, vandalism, former drug houses, or that horrible neighbour that can turn your dream home into the house from hell.

Stay strong under pressure While most real estate agents will be acting in your best interest, there can be some who may appear intimidating.

Don’t be scared to ask the agent and the seller the hard questions to ensure what you’re receiving is exactly as you expect. Delve into all aspects, starting from the foundations and working upward. Ask about any areas of mould growth, leaks and borer.

How will you continue to pay your mortgage if an income source is lost? Do you have income protection insurance? Remember now that you are a home owner you will need to set aside additional funds for rates, insurance and emergency repairs.

Consider a monthly figure that you believe will be sustainable, including the occasional emergency. If it comes down to sacrificing small luxuries like eating out or going to the movies, then chances are this house will probably break your bank account, and possibly your relationship.

This is your time to be strong and assertive. If you sell out your dreams and settle for less than what you desire, you will be less than excited to move in.

Story by: Amanda Wright

Perhaps the most important point of all, be realistic about what you can afford, and make allowances for what may happen in the future.

Also, just because you own a house doesn’t mean that the rest of life stops around you. Always consider the worst case scenario. You may have a string of unfortunate deaths or illness in the family that will require costly attention.

Keep in mind the features that you want and don’t settle for less.

Make sure your new home is your dream, not your nightmare

We can’t all afford a home like Oprah

Speak carefully to your lender about what is affordable in your situation and stick to budget.

You also need to decide on the ‘life’ of the home mortgage, as well as the ‘term’ for the interest rate that you will pay, if you select a fixed rate. The life of the home mortgage is commonly 20, 25 or 30 years. This represents the length of time in which your home will be paid off (if you pay regularly and with the specified amount).

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, November 2, 2012


Jackson in action at both ends of the court By Kris Shannon As the leader of the Breakers’ offence and one of their best at the defensive end, Cedric Jackson knows more than most about the shifting dynamic between the two. Ahead of tonight’s game against Sydney on the North Shore, this season has so far seen a departure from the Breakers’ free-scoring ways from recent years - their 3-1 record has been built not on blowing teams out but on shutting them down. They have scored 25 points fewer per game in their first three wins than at the same stage last season, but the 74 points they have averaged have been enough to triumph thanks to a miserly defence giving up only 65 points per game. Jackson, though, insists there has been no change in philosophy as the side search for a third straight championship.

Frostbuster a prelude for Coast to Coasters

As the captain of the ship, he is confident the offence is set for some smoother sailing. “It’s all about rhythm,” Jackson said. “We want to just focus on the defensive end. We know we have a lot of weapons and the offence will take care of itself. “So that’s something that we don’t really focus on too much.” The point guard did concede, however, there has been a little more attention paid to that end of the court than in his first campaign with the club. That’s largely due to some ugly shooting numbers. “The free burgers given to the home crowd when the side cracks three figures seem but a distant memory, and the fans will stay hungry as long as the Breakers continue to shoot just 41 per cent from the field. Jackson has been something of an exception to that rule, with his improvements an evident benefit

from a summer spent working on his game in an attempt to make it back to the NBA. While his field goal percentage of 47 per cent is decent, the same number from beyond the arc leaves him in the league’s top five in three-point percentage. Jackson’s 15 points per game lead the Breakers, and it would by a considerably wider margin were it not for a woeful 38 per cent success rate from the free throw line. Coach Andrej Lemanis spoke of a slight change in technique sparking Jackson’s increased threat from deep, but the player said it was more a shift in mindset. “I wouldn’t say it’s too different,” he said of his shot. “Just a bit more emphasis on different aspects of the game. “Trying to be more aggressive, learning when to take the wide-open shot. “It was definitely a good, hardworking summer.”

Kieran Read: Will be leading the All Blacks when Richie McCaw is rested

There was plenty of excitement among the All Blacks as they assembled in Auckland and prepared for their long flight to Edinburgh yesterday, but the other prevailing emotion was disappointment - 12 days on they are still annoyed at their draw against Australia. Kieran Read, who will captain the All Blacks for the first time when Richie McCaw is rested in either the first game against Scotland or next one against Italy in Rome, spoke of the feeling within the squad just before departure. It was significant that the 18-18 Bledisloe Cup draw in Brisbane remains a sore point for the All Blacks. It stopped their winning streak at 16 matches, and while it wasn’t a loss, it still feels like one, even now, and they are keen to make amends. “Speaking to a few guys today, they are pretty disappointed still from that performance,” said Read. “There is always a little bit of extra motivation [to perform well in Europe] but really we want to play our game and play positive footy and

Black Ferns Coach Brian Evans has named his 26-strong squad to travel to England for a threematch tour this month and the side will have a new captain as Victoria Grant has been ruled out with injury. Auckland police officer and 2011 New Zealand Rugby women’s player of the year Fiao’o Fa’amausili steps into the captaincy role for the tour.

In selecting his squad, Evans said that they had selected a good mix of experience and youthful talent. He has named five new caps in his squad for the tour which will again include playing their finale test match at Twickenham after the All Blacks versus England test on December 1. “We are very excited about the

prospect of playing England again. “We know they are always a formidable opposition especially at home. “While we have a few players who are new to the Black Ferns environment, we are very pleased that the women’s provincial competition and the sevens programme have provided good platforms for preparation. - APNZ

hopefully we can showcase that.” Asked if coming so close to defeat could help the All Blacks in the long-term, Read disagreed. “I’m not too sure. You could pinpoint losses or draws where you learn the most. “But we certainly don’t want to be going down those tracks. You want to learn from your wins.” It might still hurt but there is no doubt it was a wake-up call. The All Blacks will be keen to restore their reputation among the famous stadiums of the north - Murrayfield, Olympic Stadium in Rome, Millennium Stadium in Cardiff and Twickenham. And the All Blacks are still in the running for another record - their longest unbeaten streak. Now on 17, if they sweep Scotland, Italy, Wales and England and then the three tests against France in New Zealand in June next year, they will overtake the current record of 23 games without loss set in 1987-90. The France challenge is something else altogether given the rivalry which has developed between the sides over the past decade or so, and won’t yet be on the All Blacks’ horizon.

Their major focus will be Scotland, who they play on November 12 (NZT). While defeat is unlikely against a country which has never beaten the All Blacks, Steve Hansen’s men will be keen to hit the ground running. An afternoon kick-off as the temperatures begin to cool in the northern autumn should assist in this and their goal to play an uptempo game. Asked how the All Blacks remained so dominant on northern tours - they haven’t lost since 2002, a defeat by England - while southern hemisphere rivals South Africa and Australia often trip up, Read said winning was enough motivation. “Preparation is pretty key to putting a performance in each Saturday. “It’s nice that we can hopefully show the people up north how to play the game of rugby and we want to play a really nice style so hopefully we can do that.” As for whether being captain would change the way he played, Read answered: “I hope not. It’s all about doing the business on the field and performing the best you can. “Being a leader or not, I try to do that every game.” - APNZ

New skipper for Black Ferns Pocock happy over Cooper situation WEEKEND SPORTS FORM


Cedric Jackson: “We know we have a lot of weapons and the offence will take care of itself.”

All Blacks still unhappy about draw

By Jonathan Leask The Frostbuster multisport race is still considered one of the best ways to spring into the multisport season, and it could be the only way this season. Tomorrow’s Frostbuster 12 is an excellent training and testing ground for the athletes preparing for the upcoming Coast to Coast but it also used to have the longer follow up race, The Big Day at the Office, later on the calendar. The Frostbuster is one of the Simon Hampton-organised multisport events, and was usually the lead up to race to the larger Big Day at the Office race later in the year, but Hampton cancelled the race this year stating it was getting “too big for one man to handle”. That leaves the Coast to Coast candidates without their annual gauge two months out from the competition. The Frostbuster multisport race is it for this season for the serious multisporters, but for the novices and wannabes there are shorter versions of the race. The multisport race starts off with an 8.5km run through Awa Awa Rata reserve and leads into a 32km cycle that leads to the RDR for a 9km paddle in the kayak. The duathlon cuts out the kayak leg but adds in a bonus 2km run instead, and this year the new addition is simply the 8.5km run. The registration is open tomorrow with the race getting underway at 10.30am.

In the end, it was an unsuccessful summer, with the Breakers the benefactors from Jackson’s inability to land an NBA contract. With the best league in the world resuming this week, Jackson said he had no longing for what might have been. “No, I don’t get the pangs. “I’m still happy here and this is my main focus.” The 26-year-old will undoubtedly have another crack at the NBA during the next off-season, and said he still maintains contact with friends around the league. “Some of the guys hit me up every now and then, checking up on me and seeing how I’m doing. “One of my good buddies checked up on my stats last game and hit me up about free throws and turnovers and stuff like that,” he said with a laugh. “A lot of them are point guards and say, ‘watch those turnovers’.”- APNZ

▌ Victory ▌ Phoenix

Heart lacked pop where it counts hosting CCM. They didn’t often make box with any space in the face of a technical defence up field and went down to a brilliant free kick, albeit affected later by niggles to Fred (hamstring) and Macallister (back). WSW took the freedom of a new franchise to Suncorp and unencumbered by history at the venue they delivered too much ticker. You knew they had it in them and the considered way of coach Popovic is lifting individuals above their level. Heart went 4-5-5 on the road last season and you wouldn’t think they’ll get it easy out West. A standout first half from keeper Birighitti allowed Newcastle to the sheds 0-0 hosting Victory. Their marquee man Heskey stepped up in the second grabbing a brace in under three minutes. Their undeniable physical will again made up for some lack of polish and has them three straight (seven goals from them). Perth went down in Sydney without the luck and they probably should have had one from the spot (handball). These two are even the last 10 meetings, 4-4-2, but Glory are four straight that period in Perth and its ’05 since Newcastle won over there. Sydney managed a 2-1 hosting Perth last out. Coach Crook observed; ‘it’s a sign of a good side that wins when its not at its best’, but that old myth overlooks the elements that were in play; luck, rulings, home ad, and playing against 10, and he’ll have that mirror out again soon enough. CCM looked well prepped and planned visiting Heart. They absorbed some early pressure, and set about locking the host out of their own third. Although the Skyblues have drawn the last two here, CCM are unbeaten by them hosting the last three seasons, three wins from six. Hosting Phoenix the Reds got the rulings and the 3-1 probably flattered them opposing 10 much of the last quarter. They top the ladder but generally struggle here. Brisbane were unable to combat the close hassle of new franchise, WSW, and while coach Vidosic appeared dumfounded, you’d suspect they came assuming it. At 1-1-2 and seventh the ladder they’d be concerned to be held scoreless twice already. Still, they’ve had it over Adelaide for years at home. The latter drew the last at Suncorp but the meetings have gone for the host, three wins, three draws, the last three seasons. You’d forgive Phoenix’s loss at Hindmarsh where they were on the wrong end of a couple of rulings including a soft red to Sigmund on Neuman, albeit the former made the first move. If they’re going to do it away this season Melbourne is the place to start. The latter were comfortably held in the end in Newcastle, coach Postecoglou’s previous reference to determination better exercised by the Jets. They’re seven wins to two over Phoenix since the latter’s arrival including all three meetings last season, while Phoenix have never won in Melbourne against either team.

By Adrian Warren Quade Cooper will have to wait to learn whether he is welcomed back into the Wallabies fold, but teammates are happy the five-eighth’s controversial comments have finally been dealt with. The playmaker was on Wednesday hit with two fines totalling $60,000 - $20,000 of which is suspended for two years - after being found guilty of two breaches of the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) code of conduct. An independent three-person conduct tribunal also handed him a three-game ban, also suspended for two years, following recent critical comments about the Wallabies’ setup in social and mainstream media. “It’s been dealt with, which is a good thing. We’ve got some clarity now,” said Wallabies openside flanker and recent captain David Pocock yesterday. “For the moment, it’s all just all about the spring tour.” Ruled out of the four-match European tour starting this weekend with a knee injury, Cooper won’t be available for Wallabies selection until the middle of next year. Asked if Cooper would be welcomed back into the Wallabies squad, Pocock said: “I think that comes down to the coaches and selections”. While some of Cooper’s comments

Quade Cooper: fined $60,000 cast doubt on his commitment to playing for Australia, he said on Wednesday he was hoping for a big 2013 with the Wallabies. The ARU had put contract negotiations with Cooper on hold until after the conduct tribunal hearing. Interim CEO Matt Carroll said the ARU would look at how to address Cooper’s contract situation. He has already re-signed with the Queensland Reds and is now expected to land another ARU deal. “I’m now confident of a timely decision regarding Quade’s ARU contract negotiations and look forward to having him back out on the field for the Reds in February,” Queensland Rugby Union chief executive Jim Carmichael said in a statement yesterday. - AAP

Brown to lead Scots Scotland coach Andy Robinson has named Kelly Brown as captain for the November Tests, starting against world champions New Zealand. Robinson confirmed Saracens flanker Brown will replace Edinburgh hooker Ross Ford as skipper when the All Blacks visit Edinburgh on November 11 as part of their end of year tour. It is the perfect way for the 30-year-old to mark his 50th cap for Scotland after he was in line for the

role earlier this year before a broken ankle forced him to miss the Six Nations and subsequent matches against Australia, Fiji and Samoa. Brown, who can play number eight or blindside flanker, will become Scotland’s fifth captain in two years and Robinson said: “Kelly Brown is an inspirational person. He has an aura, confidence and belief about him and a firm understanding of the game. It’s because of these qualities that he has been appointed Scotland captain.” - AFP

• Warriors sign Peyroux Gold Coast utility back Dominique Peyroux yesterday became the fourth new player signed by the Warriors for next season. The 23-year-old Aucklander arrives home on Sunday ready to join new Warriors head coach Matthew Elliott and the NRL players for the first day of offseason training the following day. Peyroux’s signing of a twoyear contract follows the earlier acquisitions of Thomas Leuluai from Wigan and Melbourne’s premiership-winning duo Todd Lowrie and Dane Nielsen. Able to play in the centres, on the wing and at fullback, Peyroux said he was thrilled about returning to Auckland in his quest to establish himself at NRL level after 16 games for the Titans in the 2011 and 2012 seasons.- APNZ

• Counties keep Tana Tana Umaga has re-signed as the head coach of CountiesManukau for the next two years. Umaga, who led the Steelers to an ITM Cup championship title last weekend, said he was looking to continue the good work he has started in Pukekohe. Counties chief executive Andrew Maddock said “We are delighted that Tana has chosen to remain with Counties-Manukau. He is well respected and possesses a special ability to build relationships with players and get the best out of them.” Umaga said he had enjoyed his last three years at the province. “It is important for me to foster home grown talent within the region, create a good team culture and a positive environment for our players to - APNZ grow,” he said.

• Hendry eyes history New Zealand professional Michael Hendry has a chance to claim a special piece of history when he tees it up at Clearwater for the New Zealand Open later this month. The 33-year-old, who won the inaugural New Zealand PGA Pro-Am Championship in March for his biggest victory on home soil, will look to become the first golfer for more than five decades to win the New Zealand PGA-New Zealand Open in the same year. Australian legend Kel Nagle was the last golfer to complete that feat when he did the double in 1957 and 1958. Hendry, who recently finished fourth in the Perth International at the cosanctioned European Tour and PGA Tour of Australasia event, is excited about the prospect of that milestone. “That would be a special achievement if I can pull it off as no one has done that in - APNZ a long time.”

• Boock new president Long-serving New Zealand Cricket board member and former test player Stephen Boock was named yesterday as the new president of New Zealand Cricket. His appointment was confirmed at the governing body’s 118th annual meeting in Wellington yesterday. He succeeds Denis Currie who served the maximum three one-year terms. Boock was on the board of New Zealand Cricket from 2002-2011 after concluding a 17-year first-class playing career that included 164 matches. The left-arm spinner also played 30 tests and 14 one-day internationals for New Zealand between 1978 and 1990. He has been heavily involved with an number of non-profit organisations, having been president of Otago Special Olympics, chairman of Otago Life Education Trust, and patron of Otago Special Olympics.  - APNZ

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, November 2, 2012


Ferrer back to defend Open title The defending champion and fifth best player in the world, a former world No 7, and one of the top newcomers to this year’s tour have all been confirmed for next year’s Heineken Open. David Ferrer, a three-time Heineken Open champion, will be top billing for the tournament after a superb season which has seen him claim six titles - three more than any other year. The 30-year-old Spaniard has also been Mr Consistency in the Grand Slams this season, making the quarter-finals or semi-finals in all four. His best result saw him topple Andy Murray at the French Open. New Heineken Open tournament director Karl Budge said the world No5 had again shown his loyalty to the Auckland tournament by returning for his eighth appearance. “David has now won three Heineken Opens - equalling Kiwi great Onny Parun. “If he can also claim next year’s title he will emulate the feats of Australian legend Roy Emerson in the 1960s. That will be a special day in the tournament’s history.” After his victory in Auckland, Ferrer went on to claim titles in Buenos Aires in February, Acapulco in March, s-Hertogenbosch in June, Bastad in July and just last week he won his home town tournament - the Valencia Open. After his Bastad victory, he became the first player to reach 50 match wins this year.

Joining Ferrer at next year’s Heineken Open will be former world No7 Mardy Fish. The 30-year-old American, now ranked 26, has won six career titles, collected an Olympic silver medal in Athens and made the Wimbledon quarter-finals last year when his world ranking peaked at seven. “Last year he was playing in the ATP World Tour finals after a great season,” said Budge. Fish last played in Auckland six years ago. “Funnily enough Mardy lost in 2007 to the eventual champion David Ferrer in the semi-finals.” “He’s an all-court player with a strong net game, which will certainly add variety to an event normally dominated by the baseliners.” In addition to the two heavyweights, ATP newcomer David Goffin has also confirmed he’ll be coming to Auckland. The Belgian took a set off Roger Federer at Roland Garros in the round of 16, and afterwards the Swiss master said Goffin was “very talented” and that “he can go far”. “He’s got great potential in terms of his touch and the way he reads the game. He takes a backhand early and he absorbs pace really well, [especially] from the baseline,” said Federer. The 21-year-old started the year ranked 174 in the world but after Challenger wins in La Gosier in March and in Orleans (France) in September, Goffin quickly moved to a ranking of 42. - APNZ

• Evans quick in GP2 Newly crowned GP3 champion Mitch Evans showed good pace in his first official testing of a GP2 car during two days at the Barcelona circuit in Spain this week. The 18-year-old Kiwi quickly adapted to the dramatic increase in power from GP3 to GP2. “It was a big step up from GP3 but I got the hang of it quickly,” Evans said. “The engine has so much more grunt. My first impression was that it was an absolute animal. On the first day it seemed the car was more in control of me than I was in control of the car, but I settled in well and I think we were really competitive.” - APNZ

One of the vintage speedway race cars that came out of retirement for the first hot rod and vintage race day at the Ashburton Speedway.

Vintage rods hit the track By Jonathan Leask Some classic cars get an opportunity to cruise the clay as the Ashburton Speedway hosts their second Hot Rod and Vintage Race Day tomorrow. It’s a double-day weekend on the dirt track with the classics cruising tomorrow and the regulars racing on Sunday. “It is certainly going to be a big weekend and hopefully the weather will be kind,” Ashburton Speedway’s

Fiona Moffitt said. “We have the return of the vintage cars and the hot rods which is shaping as a rather big day. “The vintage cars are the old style speedway cars that we don’t race anymore and there are quite a few floating around, and hot rods have a big following and we have people coming from all over the South Island.” The vintage cars will come out of retirement ready to roar around the track but some of the hot rods might be hesitant.

Moffit knew that a large number of hot rods had registered to come but said she knew some would only make as far as the car park and be content with simply being on display. “It is basically like a big hot rod rally but they also have the chance to have a go on the track. “Quite a few will and as long as they don’t go too crazy the cars only cop a bit of dirt.” With the hot rods in need of a wash and the vintage cars back in retirement, Sunday’s session on

the track sees the regular racers, but with a something just a little different. “We have the modified V8s down from Christchurch and they haven’t been seen for a few years, but and we have a full field so that’s something different and exciting,” Moffitt said. There will be grand prix racing for the six shooters and the production cars, while the other grades will have to be content with collecting points towards the end of season tally.

David Ferrer returns to the Auckland for the eighth time in January.

Williams’ on tour US tennis star Serena Williams hopes her African tour with elder sister Venus will encourage athletes on the continent to strive for excellence in their sport. The pair, who have won a combined 22 major women’s singles championships, are in Nigeria before heading to South Africa today, in a two-country visit to promote women’s rights. “We would definitely love to see more athletes come out of Africa,” Serena told journalists.

“We were able to break the mould in a sport that was just really dominated by white people and to have a face of colour that can come in and dominate (shows) it doesn’t matter what your background is and where you come from,” she said. Serena, 31, has visited other African nations before, while Venus, 32, landed on the continent for the first time on Tuesday. “I’ve always wanted to come here,” said the elder Williams sister.  - AFP

With the opening round washed out and only one round completed, just who the title contenders are in open A grade tennis is still up for discussion, however round three could provide some early answers tomorrow. Round two winners Hampstead and Methven square off in round three of the open grade tennis competition. Hampstead had a strong 5-1 victory over Tinwald last week while Methven edged out Fairton on sets 7-6, and how they go against each other will provide an insight into just how close or far apart the competition is. In the Hampstead camp the new addition Deeley boys, Tom and Ben, combined well with Joseph Langley and William Blacklow in last week’s round. Methven, led by Jayden Cromie, cleaned up in the doubles before only A grade debutant James Watt won in the singles, but Cromie picked up a valuable set in his three set loss to Peter Withers. While Hampstead and Methven chase win number two, Fairton

Fairton and Allenton are looking for their first wins and Allenton are looking for their first wins. Fairton were one set shy after Withers, Rebecca Robinson and Toby Thomas all claimed single wins but without a win in the doubles were on the back foot. Allenton faced last year’s top team Dorie first up featuring Mid Canterbury’s top player Rhys Cromie, and were also without a win in the doubles. Based on last week the two sides seem evenly matched. With the win over Allenton’s Jason Feutz, Rhys Cromie continued his unbeaten run in singles matches, stretching back past last season, and guided Dorie to a strong start which again has them touted as a title contender. Tinwald were without Simon Jordan and were found wanting against Hampstead. With Cromie’s Dorie up next they will want to lift or they will certainly be winless heading into the fourth round.

White facing bowling’s big guns By Jonathan Leask The Lowry Cup is one of the most fiercely contested bowling trophies in Mid Canterbury. Tomorrow the quest for the cup begins with 38 men and come Sunday afternoon only one will remain. The cup is the premier men’s open singles event and over two days the 38 big guns from around the clubs of Mid Canterbury get whittled down to one. Bruce White is back to defend his title. A beaten finalist on four occa-

sions White overcame Craig Carter last year to claim his first title. Carter is absent from the tournament entry list this year, but there are plenty of candidates in the field lining up to take the cup off White’s hands. Knocked out in the qualifying round last year Peter Collins will be back on the greens to chase a fifth Lowry Cup, having won four times in the past nine seasons. Michael Lawson is another previous Lowry Cup winner staking his claims. Gavin Eder went down to White in last year’s semi-finals while

Michael Grice, Darryn Turner and Tony Inwood were all quarterfinalists, with Inwood the runnerup two years ago. There is also a number of potential first time winners in the field. This year the Lowry Cup will be done over one weekend with the qualifying taking place tomorrow at the Ashburton and Tinwald bowling clubs, before the final 12 return to the Ashburton Green on Sunday for the knockout rounds. Right: Defending Lowry Cup champ Bruce White has a quality field to contend with this weekend.

How do you come back from being all out for 18? That is the question hanging over Lauriston ahead of the third round of Mid Canterbury senior cricket’s Pritchard Shield tomorrow. Lauriston suffered one of the worst capitulations in Mid Canerbury senior cricket history hammered by 180 runs last week when they were skittled for 18 chasing Coldstream’s 198. It’s a double-edged sword, as Lauriston was also the first team to conceded triple figures in what is proving a low scoring start to the summer. But 18 is beyond low scoring. “It’s a game I don’t really want to think back on,” Lauriston’s Nick Gilbert said. “Our bowling wasn’t bad but our batting was woeful and the result was embarrassing. “We were missing Bevan Richan who has become a key part of our team but that no excuse. We still possessed a deep batting line-up with a lot of experienced guys.” The problem’s not what happened, it’s if and how they respond, but it doesn’t get any easier for Lauriston.

The Sharks started their campaign in emphatic fashion with a 10 wicket win over the Tech Stags, and will be circling around a wounded Lauriston. “They have a lot of bowling talent across the board, but we just need some self-discipline and not try to score off every ball,” Gilbert said. Fairfield host Methven with both teams after a first win. Fairfield is without a win following two low scoring losses, their most recent was a one run defeat to Allenton when they played a man short. Their bowling department has been getting the job done but the batting is coming up short, although last week they were a man short as well as one run. Methven comes off the bye having been well beaten first up by Allenton, also failing to deliver with the bat and leaving too much work for the bowlers. Allenton scraped home against a 10-man Fairfield, but will fancy their chances of claiming a third straight win when they host the Tech Stags. Neither side has managed to pass 100 this season but the Stags have been beaten on both occasions, batting first twice, while Allenton has managed to win.

Australian road cycling team Orica-GreenEDGE have announced the sacking of team director Matt White. His dismissal comes a fortnight after he also lost his part-time role with Cycling Australia as their professional men’s coordinator. White was stood down from the Orica-GreenEDGE and national roles in October after he confessed to doping during his professional career. He made the confession following the release of evidence in the Lance Armstrong doping case that has rocked the sport. White was mentioned in the report and he confessed to doping while riding for Armstrong’s US Postal. OricaGreenEDGE also announced a review of their anti-doping policies and procedures. - AAP

• Support for Jeronimo Adelaide United players have rallied around Argentine attacker Jeronimo Neumann to shield him from the fallout of the A-League’s diving controversy. Neumann’s team-mates believe the striker hasn’t been adversely affected by being branded a cheat by Wellington Phoenix for an alleged dive last Saturday. “I don’t think it will affect him at all. If you look into our training, he’s his normal self and enjoying it,” Adelaide’s Dario Vidosic said. “In football, these things always happen and, in the end, a decision was made and I think it was the correct decision. He has got all our support.” Neumann was called a cheat by Phoenix’ Andrew Durante for diving.- AAP

• Watson aiming high He is 63 years old, ranked No.900 in the world and hasn’t won a non-Seniors event in almost a decade and a half. But try telling golfing great Tom Watson he can’t win next month’s Australian Open in Sydney. “I think it’s worth a few dollars on me. What are my odds now?” Watson said yesterday. “My form is pretty good right now. I’ve been practising quite hard and getting ready. I should be in pretty good form, I think.” The eight-times major winner said he’d been surveying the Lakes course on the internet and insisted his first-time appearance at the venue would be anything but ceremonial. Watson, who lost the British Open in a playoff at 59 three years ago, hoped the relative shortness of The Lakes would improve his chances of springing quite the boilover. - AAP

• Harden, Lin in form Jeremy Lin was a winner in his NBA debut with the Houston Rockets, but it was fellow newcomer James Harden who lifted the squad in a 10596 away triumph over Detroit yesterday. The Rockets obtained Harden on Saturday in a deal with Oklahoma City and signed a five-year contract extension worth a reported $US80 million with Houston only hours before he took the court with his new - AFP team-mates.

Folau quits AFL after one season Star rugby league convert Israel Folau has confirmed he will leave the AFL after one year with Greater Western Sydney. The 23-year-old fronted a Greater Western Sydney news conference yesterday to announce he was leaving the club. Folau announced in June, 2010 he was joining the Giants and he played 13 games for them this year in their debut AFL season.


He had minimal on-field impact, but securing Folau was a marketing coup for the AFL and their latest expansion team. Giants chief executive David Matthews said the club supported the decision. Folau quit the Giants with two years left on his lucrative contract. His departure will also fuel speculation that the Giants will make a big play for former Adelaide key forward Kurt Tippett.

Matthews said they regarded Tippett as an “independent consideration” to Folau’s departure. He added the Giants had been in touch with Tippett’s management for several weeks. Given Tippett’s preferred trade to Sydney will not happen, Matthews said GWS will renew their push to sign him.  - AAP

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, November 2, 2012



Kerr-Barlow living the dream New All Blacks squad member Tawera Kerr-Barlow didn’t get much sleep on Wednesday night. The 22-year old Waikato halfback was kept awake by the thought of joining up with his All Blacks teammates for the first time, and as he prepared to depart with his idols on their end of year tour to Europe he had the glint in his eye of a young man living out his dream. “I was like a kid in a candy store getting kitted out in all my All Blacks gear, and I’m probably still containing myself, but inside I’m jumping around,” Kerr-Barlow said. “Last night I think I was more nervous than before I play a football match, but today was probably one of the coolest days of my life.” Named as one of three halfbacks in the All Blacks’ 32-man squad to tour Europe for a month, KerrBarlow could overtake Piri Weepu as the second best halfback by the end of the tour, if he takes his chances overseas like he did for the Chiefs in the Super 15. The former Hamilton Boys High School student hopes to force his way past test incumbents Aaron Smith and Weepu to get a start in at least one of the four scheduled tests against Scotland, Italy, Wales and England.

New All Black Tawera Kerr-Barlow “I’m just going to soak up everything here, learn all the moves and do the business on the paddock. “I have to try to remain calm and not let the occasion overwhelm me, but words can’t express how excited I am at the moment.” “For me, just to put on the jersey and go out there and hear the anthem and do the haka will be amazing. But I’m looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere over there too.” Kerr Barlow said he had been caught off guard by the introduction of the International Rugby Board law amendment which has removed the call ‘pause’ from the setting of a scrum, in order to minimise resets because of collapsed scrums. “Yea that got me at training actually.

What is this person famous for?

“The first time I was off balance when they engaged but after a while you just get used to it and it will probably be the biggest challenge for the props and second rowers.” Kerr-Barlow admitted not knowing much about the European opposition the All Blacks will come up against but is determined to make the most of the opportunities handed to him, on and off the field. “I used to watch a lot of old tapes I had of the ‘99 World Cup which was played over there and I’m really looking forward to soaking up what looks like a great atmosphere. “I’m an avid reader and quite a few books I have read are about Rome so I’m quite excited to go and seeing the Coliseum and a bit of history too.” It seems that every aspect of Kerr-Barlow’s new world is greeted with open arms and a wide smile and his day was made complete by the standard of hospitality provided on his first day of camp. “I have to watch myself with the food, I have come in for a couple of the camps and the food has been brilliant. “I just had a meeting with the nutritionist and he laid down the law. But I am looking forward to the first lunch of the tour today.”- NZH

Perry ‘just a country boy’ Tim Perry may be the latest addition to the Blues Super 15 rugby team’s propping stocks, but he wasn’t always a willing front rower. Perry, 24, is a Mid Canterbury export who started his career with the Rakaia Rugby Club and last played for the club in 2010 before deciding to try his luck in Tasman – a move which ultimately brought him to the attention of the Blues selectors and resulted in him signing his first Super Rugby contract. But in 2010, Perry rarely turned out in the number one jersey for Rakaia. Instead, he was used mainly as a number eight. According to the side’s player/ coach from 2010 Craig Dunlea – a prop himself – Perry was a bit disheartened and not sure where he wanted to take his rugby at that point. “He didn’t want to play prop so we got him in at number eight, then he came back in the front row for Mid Canterbury,” Dunlea said. “He was always a pretty tall boy as it was and it was just more the fact of getting him back playing. “Everyone could see his potential and knew what his potential was and he eventually realised he wanted to have a decent crack at it.” A no-frills country lad, Perry isn’t one to get caught up in all the hype. On the day he was named in the squad, he was at home on the

He’s at home in the country and pig hunting up in the hills,” Dunlea said. But he’s confident Perry will adapt to city life once he gets into the swing of training. Perry will move to Auckland at the end of the month ready for pre-season training. Rakaia Rugby Club president Mark Boag has also known Perry for

Jono Print gets in some net practice on the grass as Mid Canterbury prepares to battle their southern neighbours.

Biggar challengers ‘confident’ By Jonathan Leask Dan Murari is the only new face in the Mid Canterbury senior cricket team for their first game against South Canterbury for the Ron Biggar Memorial on Sunday. Coach Richard Pithey has named a youthful line-up, but Murari is the only new cap in the side looking to prise the Ron Biggar Memorial Trophy from South Canterbury. “It is a young side but we had most of them in the team last year, so they have an extra year of experience,” Pithey said. “We haven’t won the Biggar Memorial for a quite a few years but I think this is a team that can do the job.” South Canterbury has taken the honours for the last six seasons but Mid Canterbury has been getting closer with a 14 run loss in Ashburton two seasons ago, and last year they were nine runs short. Seven players remain in the 12

from last year while Murari could easily have been in the opposition, playing a handful of games for South Canterbury last season out of the Timaru Cricket Club. “Originally from India we all call him Dan but his real name is Dhananjaya,” Pithey said. “He played for South Canterbury last year but moved up here for work but currently travels to Dunedin each weekend to play his club cricket.” Murari will slot into the top order, where he scored 66 in a preseason match against a strong Canterbury Country last month, and will open the batting with former Canterbury under 18 representative Ben Ward. “Ben has just returned from the UK where I understand he had a pretty successful season.” Jono Print scored a century in his Hawke Cup debut earlier this year and has recorded the highest score at club level so far this season. The bowling department will be

spearheaded by Richard Print, coming off a five wicket bag last weekend and Bevan Ravenscroft. Ravenscroft played three of the Hawke Cup matches last summer taking 16 wickets. Jack McDonald was set to return to Mid Canterbury bringing his express pace but a knee injury has seen batsman Scott Maher promoted from 12th man duties. Captain and wicket keeper Matt Winter will still have plenty of options able to call upon with seamers Jason Morrison, Des Kruger and Matt Tait. Another former Canterbury under 18 representative, Tom Meyrick, offers a quality off-spin option and Murarai is also a leg spin option. The annual 50 over fixture gets under way at the Ashburton Domain Oval at 10.30am Sunday.

much of his rugby playing life, and said he always had the potential to make it big. Perry began playing for Rakaia at under-8 level and went through to the under-13s before going to St Andrews in Christchurch. When he returned to Mid Canterbury he again pulled on the blue of Rakaia, last turning out for the side in 2010 before moving to Tasman with the hope of making the Tasman Makos. He did that and this year became a regular starter, catching the eye of more than one Super Rugby franchise. Boag said Perry’s naming in the Blues squad was a proud day for the club. Perry’s dad Grant Perry – a former All Black – and his uncle Bruce Perry are still on the Rakaia club committee and now it looks like another Perry is about to get his picture on the clubroom walls. Boag said Perry had been involved in Canterbury rugby academies as he grew up and he always had the potential to go places. “He’s always been a big lad, all through the grades. “He was always one of the standout players,” Boag said. “He’s a big boy. He’s the ideal size and with the coaching he’ll get at that level I don’t see any reason why he can’t go on to bigger things.” Boag said props didn’t reach their prime until they were around 30 years old, so at 24, Perry had plenty to offer.
