Raising awareness of breastfeeding with Big Latch On BY KATIE TODD


The vibe was laidback as the clock struck 10.30am at the New Life Church in Tinwald and 23 mums and 24 bubs took part in the annual Big Latch On. The annual event sees mums around the globe pledging their support for the mammary milk via a massed, simultaneous breastfeed. In 2017, 1954 Kiwi women and babies took part at venues or online through the #BrelfieNZ campaign. Plunket Community Support Co-ordinator Sue-Ann Carr said the day was a relaxed way to raise awareness of breastfeeding, celebrate the health benefits and help to normalise it.

“It’s a fun event. All family members are welcome to come along – dads too,” she said. Morning tea was provided, goodie bags were handed out and all breastfeeding mothers went into the draw for spot prizes including spa treatments, wool for babies and tickets to the Kate Meads Waste Free Parenting Workshop. The event has been running for 26 years globally and New Zealand has taken part for the past 14. A Big Latch On was held in Rakaia yesterday and another will be held in Methven today. Carr said next year, they are hoping to organise the event in a more public venue. The event coincides with World Breastfeeding Week.

Rural folk ‘face unique challenges’ BY SUE NEWMAN


If there was anything that prepared him for a career in Parliament, it was a stint as a pig farmer, says Rangitata MP Andrew Falloon. Pigs had many different personalities and some of those personalities were the same in Parliament, he said. Falloon was opening speaker at yesterday’s Rural Women NZ Region three conference in Ashburton and while he started his speech on a light note, he left attendees in little doubt that he took very seriously the issues that were important to them. If he had a magic wand that could either fix a problem or elevate that problem on Parliament’s radar it would be around

Andrew Falloon rural mental health, he said. New Zealand led the world in many areas but unfortunately mental health was not one of those, Falloon said.

“Last year more than 600 New Zealanders took their own lives.” Reducing youth suicide quite rightly received plenty of attention but unfortunately there was far less focus on rural communities and rural families, he said. “Rural communities face unique challenges. Their work is not nine to five, their workplace is also their home and they can’t check out on a Friday.” On top of depressed dairy prices and high farmer debt, many in the rural sector were now dealing with the impact of micoplasma bovis, he said. “I’ve worked with many farmers who have been affected and I’ve watched hard, stoic men and women who have been brought to tears by this dreadful situation.”

The government process for dealing with the disease did not put the people affected at its heart, Falloon said. “It’s very important we keep an eye on young people, their issues are much more visible but we also need to do much more to safeguard the mental health of rural people.” And part of that safeguard would be removing mental health from being a political issue, he said. Falloon is currently involved in an initiative to form a cross political party working group to work on mental health issues. The Rural Women conference used as its theme, Suffrage 125, are we there yet? In response to that, Falloon’s answer was a resounding no.

While there had been significant improvement in gender pay equality, with the gap narrowing from 16.4 per cent in 1998 to 9.5 per cent today, more work was still needed, he said. Where progress was not being made was in the area of family violence. Police responded to more than 100,000 family violence calls each year, but there were many, many incidents that were never reported, Falloon said. Rural women was a valuable organisation in ensuring politicians remained in touch with what was really happening in their communities at grass roots, he said. “Where you can you push us, where, when we need pushing, and you tell us where we’re wrong when we are wrong.”

Students keen to be on stage By Katie todd

Minutes after an open mic event wrapped up at Ashburton College yesterday, students were queuing up to secure their spot performing in the next one. The lunchtime events at the college auditorium have been drawing big, enthusiastic audiences and a range of talent, from bands to solo performers, dancing and singing. They are held every few Fridays and are one of a number of initiatives founded by this year’s student executive to foster a “positive and supportive environment within the school,” cultural committee leader Jack Bubb said. Tumultuous applause followed every act yesterday afternoon. The first open mic event was held in early Term 1 and yesterday’s was the third.

Local schools to close on strike day By Katie todd

The message was very clear at Ashburton Borough School yesterday afternoon – “it’s time”. The primary was one of dozens around the country to participate in a community day of action before teachers and principals take full-day strike action later this month. Students, staff and families gathered on the school fields with placards in the afternoon, during what Ashburton Borough School’s Jan Church described as an opportunity to spread the word on what exactly teachers are campaigning for – more teachers,

more resources and a pay jolt to address the teacher shortage. Many members of the school community were aware of the campaign, led by teachers union NZEI Te Riu Roa, but yesterday brought their messages from a national level to a local level, she said. Netherby School and Fairton School held information sessions for interested community members, while other events across the country included “toots for support” on streets and at roundabouts, petition walls, message trees for teachers, coffee at the school gate, powhiris and even children making videos about

why they value school. The full day work stoppage will be held across New Zealand on Wednesday, August 15 and the majority of local schools – including Ashburton Borough School, Ashburton Intermediate, Methven Primary School, Tinwald School, Fairton School and Rakaia School – have made the decision to close on that day. NZEI president Lynda Stuart said most parents had a really good understanding of the strike and had been voicing their support. “Parents and caregivers know we are not taking this strike lightly and that it has been 24 years since we have taken such

Principals and teachers had asked for more time to teach and lead and more support for children with additional learning needs, as well as a 16 per cent pay rise over two years. It was hoped the pay rise could stem teacher shortages – which local schools last year said they are “bearing the brunt” of. The offer sees trained teachers’ base salaries increase between 6.1 to 14.7 per cent and principals’ salaries increase between 6-11 per cent over three years. But the majority of teachers (about 86 per cent) are being offered a pay rise ranging from about 2.2-2.6 per cent a year for three years.

action,” she said. “This is about their children and the future of education. They get that. They see the effect every day – from the parents and caregivers trying to get support for their child with additional needs to those who are worried about doubling-up classes when there are not enough teachers to go around.” From paid union meetings in Mid Canterbury and across the country over the past two weeks, primary principal and teacher members of the New Zealand Educational Institute voted to reject the “disappointing” Ministry of Education’s pay offers.

First tenants welcomed into homes By Sue NewmaN

Just weeks after it bought its first property, Ashburton’s Housing and Support Trust has provided homes for two older Ashburtonians. The trust was formed earlier this year and in June bought nine villas at the Cameron Courts Retirement Village. Two of those now have new tenants as part of the trust’s objective of providing affordable housing for people over 60 who do not own their own homes. The trust will progressively buy the remaining seven villas from the owner/occupiers. Trust chair Jackie Girvan said the housing project had been several years in the making with a number of options considered before the opportunity came to buy the villas. “We decided they were a well maintained and designed complex and were well suited to offer affordable rental accommodation,” she said. The trust was aware that many over 60s struggled to find affordable rental accommodation and with a local organisation in the mix, that accommodation could be provided by locals who would ensure both the properties and the individuals were well looked after, Girvan said. With ownership of all Cameron Courts villas likely to take a number of years to complete, the trust did not want to run waiting lists for tenants. “Once we have another unit available we will put our feelers out to see who is in need,” she said. The criteria for eligibility is asset based. “It’s very similar to what the

council does in their flats, for people who can’t get into the private rental market. We’re trying to attract those people who’re just living on a pension and who don’t own their own home.” A philanthropic trust that provided locally owned housing for people in need was a new concept in the Ashburton District and with an already well established need, the trust’s property holdings could only grow, Girvan said. The trust considered becoming a Government housing provider but opted not to go down this path because it would have removed the ability to provide local housing for local people. “We believe housing is not just a government issue it’s a community issue too.” With the Cameron Courts villas progressively coming into its letting pool, the trust was now looking at other options for expanding its holdings, Girvan said. “This is just the beginning for us, not the end. We’re looking at options going forward and we’re looking at a greenfields proposal; we’d like to build.” The success of any building project, however, would rely on obtaining affordable land. “However, it has to be a project that is commercially viable. It doesn’t have to make money but we do have to cover our costs,” she said. The trust is funded through Presbyterian Support, Mackenzie Charitable Foundation, Community trust of Mid and South Canterbury, Trevor Wilson Charitable Trust and a large private donor.

Plastic-free fruit trade booms By Katie todd

A fruit and vegetable seller who made the bold decision to go plastic free is seeing Ashburton residents showing the love for his service. Fruit Madness Greymouth Eddie Stills used to drive his van to Ashburton weekly to collect fruit from suppliers and said he decided in April to offer a delivery service while he was at it. He has been swamped with Ashburton subscribers – delivering to 30 to 40 local homes each Tuesday. “Things definitely went off with a bang,” he said. Products in the boxes come without plastic wrap or packaging, which he said is a direct result

Allen’s Ashburton offer a great service

of what customers have been asking for – and possibly a key reason for his success. “In the shop, more and more people were turning down plastic bags. In berry season they would bring their own Tupperware. People are definitely more aware,” he said. “One person even used their backpack in the shop and filled it with stone fruit,” assistant Belinda Horton said. Stills says delivering the products has also helped him cut down on food waste. In the store, food is handled by customers and subsequently bruised, resulting in items that have to be discarded. “But this way we are the only ones who handle the fruit and

then it goes straight to the customer. We hardly throw anything out now.” For $20, customers get a standard box, while small, large and personalised varieties are also offered. Fruit is sourced mostly from Christchurch, Temuka, Ashburton and Oamaru and delivered free in Ashburton, Rakaia, Dunsandel, Rolleston, Greymouth, Runanga, Kumara and Hokitika. Stills is known in Ashburton as the past owner of Eddie’s Fresh Fruit in East Street. He said he is still trying to go 100 per cent plastic free – for example trying to keep lettuce hydrated without the plastic pockets of water they arrive in. Stills said he looked forward to the business progressing.

Art with a difference at trading table By Katie todd

The Ashburton Art Gallery’s latest exhibition could see viewers leaving with changed perspectives and unexpected new acquisitions – and the artists with newfound knowledge and adaptability. Three contemporary artists from the Physics Room in central Christchurch are travelling south to present (Un)conditional IV which looks at the concepts of hosting and being a guest. Prior to existing as a physical contemporary art space, the Physics Room existed as South Island Art Projects, a siteless organisation which presented art events in all sorts of spaces. Exhibitions Assistant Nicole Bourke said (Un)conditional IV marks a return to that model, with the artists travelling to Ashburton and once again having to interact with a particular space. The artists will examine the conditions that shape cultural, legal, commercial, familial, and educational relationships, whether these are explicit, implicit, above board or sub rosa. Taking a “DIY approach,” artist Mike Hewson has hand-painted over 2000 tiles for his contribution to the exhibition, divided into three Ashburton palettes – snow, bush and tussock. He began painting the tiles at the start of the year and a number will be on sale to visitors, giving them the opportunity to “Hewsonclad” their homes. Artist John Vea’s contribution to the exhibition was inspired by a week spent in Ashburton earlier this year, immersing himself in the town and conducting research with migrants and newcomers to understand how locals welcomed them. Working outwards from the challenges he faced in locating and contacting these communities, Vea has created a suite of rendered property development drawings to propose an international food court for the now vacant iSite building to suggest an environment where a host of social interactions can occur. And back at the gallery, this

weekend will see the third artist, Eve Armstrong, presenting her Trading Table project as part of the exhibition. Trading Table involves Armstrong setting up a table of objects in a public place and inviting people to trade with her for something on it. Armstrong explained that the (Un)conditional projects have been about exchange and value – two ideas which are also central to the Trading Table. The Trading Table first began in 2003, when Armstrong was at art school in Auckland. She would set up in a street or arcade and invite

passers-by to trade with her for something on the table. As most people would encounter the table unexpectedly, she said the trades went beyond tangible objects into all sorts of services, skills and creative ideas. “Trades are always diverse. Some are practical, others imaginative. In 2016 I took the table off the street into an art context at the Auckland Art Fair. Since then it has also been part of an art fair in Sydney and travelled to Christchurch and Nelson as part of the (Un)conditional series of exhibitions with The Physics Room. “I’ve found having the table as

part of an art-related event or exhibition has resulted in even more interesting and generous trades as it is less random than encountering someone on the street.” Recent trades through the (Un) conditional exhibitions have included a homemade three-course meal for two delivered, two hours of face-painting for a child’s party, a haircut by a professional hairdresser, a kebab tour of Berlin, a political cartoon by an 11-yearold, an art therapy session and a customised virtual reality headset. Armstrong said she doesn’t have any particular expectations of Ashburton traders.

“The table is more about coming along and being willing to work together and trade. After all the years of running the table I’m still surprised by the trades that arise every time,” she said. Armstrong’s Trading Table will be at the gallery from 12noon to 4pm on Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sunday. The (Un)conditional IV exhibition opens officially on Sunday at 5pm when the public are invited to join the artists and curators for a discussion about their work and collaboration. The exhibition runs until August 31.

Living with dementia Ashburton woman Anne* had four years of intensive nursing training behind her, but she was not prepared for her husband’s decline into dementia. Hospice Mid Canterbury manager Christine Wilson shares Anne’s story.


nne began to notice the first signs of dementia in her husband Barry* about 10 years ago. He was no longer doing the things he had previously enjoyed. For instance, he said he had fed the chickens, even though she knew he hadn’t. And while appearing normal when out with company and attending different meetings, at home there were angry outbursts. These were out of character for the gentle, loving man Anne had married almost 50 years ago. Making matters worse, a psychologist specialising in dementia told Anne that she could see nothing wrong with her husband. The diagnosis of dementia came two years later, when Barry had a stroke. A brain scan confirmed that parts of his brain had died. For Anne, it was a relief, confirming what she knew. From then on, supports were put in place by her GP. The occupational therapist helped, as did Dementia Canterbury, and Barry began at the Park Street Day Centre one day a week. Over the next eight years, Barry slowly deteriorated. Personal care became more of an issue, but Anne was a nurse and used to such things. The angry outbursts were the most difficult, particularly at “sundowning” time. People with dementia often get very agitated at the end of the day. It’s a lonely business when the person you love has started to disappear. About three years ago, Canterbury District Health Board provided carers to come in a

few times a week, and then at the start of this year, twice a day, every day. At the end of last year, Anne put a referral in to Hospice Mid Canterbury. Barry surprised her by being very positive about having his life story written and each week looked forward to the biographer coming. With some prompting from Anne, he was able to remember much of the life he had lived, and he now enjoys showing visitors his life story. Anne also requested some massage for herself because she was sore and tired from being the sole caregiver. She found the massage relaxing, and with the help of a Hospice Mid Canterbury counsellor, was able to get some perspective on her situation and some strategies to help her manage. Sadly in the middle of this year, Barry deteriorated to the point where Anne and her children had to put him into care. Anyone who has had to make this decision understands the pain, guilt and sadness that continue long after their loved one has gone into care. And when I interviewed Anne, she talked about just how difficult this had been for her. “I cry at the drop of a hat,” she said. Everything is still very raw, but there have been some special moments that Anne will treasure forever. When visiting Barry recently, she told him to shove over in the bed, and she got in with him. He put his arm around her and she put her head on his shoulder, just

– a carer’s story

as they used to. “I love you, Anne,” Barry said, remembering her name for the first time in a very long time. A little while later the nurse found them both fast asleep in bed together. Anne has advice for caregivers in a similar situation. “Make sure you look after yourself. Keep up your social contacts,

and keep up some exercise. No matter how hard it is, ask for help. You can’t do it on your own.” She also wishes she had worked on an Advance Care Plan while Barry was able to understand what it was about. Most of all, she is sad that she and Barry can no longer do the things that they had planned. “Do things as a couple while

you can,” Anne said. * Names have been changed to protect identity. If you or someone you know has a life-limiting illness, contact Hospice Mid Canterbury to discuss ways the service may be able to help – (03)307-8387 or manager@

In brief


Countdown kids appeal kicks off The annual Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal was launched in Christchurch on Wednesday, kickstarting a fundraiser that will benefit unwell children across New Zealand. The appeal runs until the end of October with Countdown and district health board staff hosting various fundraising activities, such as quiz nights, car rallies, cake stalls and raffles. Since its inception in 2007, $11.6 million has been raised for medical equipment in children’s wards in 13 hospitals around the country. Of that sum over $1 million has gone to Christchurch Hospital’s Child Health Division. Canterbury DHB has used funds from the appeal to buy a wide range of equipment. Last December $76,935 from the appeal was used to buy items such as ultrasonic height and weight measuring equipment, portable scales and a breast milk analyser. The latter ensures premature babies get the right nutrients they need for optimum growth and development. Until October 31, Countdown stores will be working alongside their local children’s wards to host fundraising activities. The public can also donate to the appeal by visiting the website or by txting KIDS to 3066 to make a $3 donation.

Climber rescued The stranded Australian climber was plucked to safety off Mt Aspiring yesterday in a “snatch and grab” rescue mission and taken to Dunedin Hospital by helicopter. The rescue operation to retrieve the climber was described as ‘’Bigger than Ben Hur’’. A fleet of helicopters had been poised ready to retrieve the soldier, trapped on the mountain since Tuesday after he activated his emergency beacon. The Australian edition of the Daily Mail named the climber as Lieutenant Terry Harch, who has spent a week on the mountain in freezing conditions. - NZME

Watters Cup throwback

Today will see one of Mid Canterbury’s greatest pieces of sporting silverware, the Watters Cup, go on the line when Celtic and Southern lock horns at the Ashburton Showgrounds. Guardian editor Matt Markham hit the archives.

Collegiate 24, Southern 22 B eing 0-12 down after just 15 minutes of a Watters Cup final might not seem like the ideal situation to find yourself in, but for Collegiate they had no choice but to make it work. And as Southern went to town in the early stanza of the match with tries through Daniel Bokser and then Matt Foxcroft, things looked grim for the town lads who were taking on the

boys from out in the country. The match was turned around late in the first half when Andre Renata scored off the back of a scrum. Traded penalties saw Collegiate heading into the break, down 11-15, a much better score than at the quarter mark of the match. Allowed more rein in the second half, Collegiate went to work scoring through speedster Matangi Halaufia and then halfback Richard Donnelley which turned the score around to have Collegiate up 24-15. Southern did mount a late charge in the match, with hooker Jimmy Carr being driven over to score but that was to be it for the match with the score closing at 24-22. In his winning captain’s speech, Andrew Morgan said it had been an up and down year for his team and it was good to win over Southern, because they had been the pinnacle of local rugby over recent years. Southern captain John Ellis said his team just could not get hold of the ball in the second half. For Collegiate coach Steve MacAskill, winning the Watters Cup was the perfect way to celebrate his first year in charge of the Collegiate seniors.

Southern 12, Celtic 12 T hey say winning isn’t everything, but many of the hundreds who packed the Ashburton Showgrounds to watch the 2006 Watters Cup senior rugby final between Celtic and Southern end in a 12-all draw, begged to differ. In a match where desperate defence became the highlights, with countless try-saving tackles, it was ultimately the boots of kickers which kept the match at a dead-lock with no side scoring a

try in the match. The result, a highly contentious one at the time saw major calls to see a change made where extra time was included in the conditions of the Watters Cup to determine a winner, but as history would suggest – it would not be done and a few years down the track, history would again repeat itself.

hat a difference a year can make. After a narrow defeat 12 months earlier, Southern exacted revenge on Collegiate to stop them from winning back-to-back titles for the first time with a dominant effort – albeit taking 30 minutes to score their first try of the match which came through Fraser Hutchinson, playing at No. 8 who barged his way over to give his side an 8-0 lead at the break. Collegiate weren’t without their opportunities though but an early try to Jon Dampney in the second half put the real pressure on. Matt Foxcroft (Southern) and Clark McLeod (Collegiate) both had shortened finals with 10 minutes in the bin after a scuffle. The Fridd brothers, Nathan and Richard, took control for the Southern men and put the game beyond doubt with Daniel Bokser, for the second year in a row, getting his name on the score sheet late to really blow the score line out in front. To be fair, Southern should have won – for the entire season they lost just the one match – a defeat to Darfield in the PGG Cup, their only stumbling block in an otherwise perfect season.

Left – You muddy beauty: Methven stand united in victory behind the Watters Cup trophy.

Methven 24, Southern 20 T

wenty-five years is a bloody long time in rugby, and Methven knew it all too well heading into the 2008 Watters cup final. Not only were they dealing with having history against them, the men from under the mountain also had the added tag of being underdogs against a slick and experienced Southern side. What was supposed to be a battle of the slick Methven backline against the stern Southern defence turned on its head with Methven’s defence ultimately winning them the match. Methven dominated much of the first half with tries to Brenton Connell and Hayden Dw-

yer, although Southern fought back with a strong pushover try through Aaron Chudleigh. Tries to Nick Feutz and then Joel Hewson shortly after the break turned the match back in favour of Southern and down 20-17, Methven were in trouble. But a quick tap and a beautiful pass from Connell to winger Peter Shearer who crashed over in the corner and a sideline conversion from Dan Maw put the match back to Methven and they did enough to hold on for the win. An ecstatic Craig Carter, who was coaching the Methven side, summed it up best in the aftermath of the match. “We’ll finally have that drink out of that cup 25 years later.”


Southern struggled to contain Rakaia’s flying wing Seta Koroitamana during the 2016 Watters Cup final clash.

Rakaia 26, Southern 26 T

en years after the last stalemate in a Watters Cup, history repeated itself in 2016. A thrilling, free-running game of rugby was put on show by two very good rugby sides and unlike years before when serious questions were asked about the need for extra time in the cup final, most rugby enthusiasts walked away from the Ashburton Showgrounds content with a fitting result. Defending champions Rakaia drew first blood through prop Luke Leasoki with an unconverted try inside five minutes, before Richard Fridd put Southern’s first points on the board from a penalty. Southern were rewarded after 25 minutes, when hooker Angus McKenzie eventually bundled over for his side’s first try of the afternoon and Fridd added the extras as Southern narrowed the deficit to four points.

Rakaia were then reduced to 14 as referee Kevin Opele sent first five Andrew Letham to the sin-bin for a reckless tackle on fellow 10 Fridd, before flanker Isaiah Renata joined his captain less than a minute later for a spear tackle. Things soon went from bad to worse for Rakaia as loose forward Jon Dampney put Southern ahead for the first time in the match. Southern excelled early in the second half with a try through Will McKenzie. Up by 12, Southern had one hand on the cup, but tries to Timoci Nabeke and then Ryan Williams saw the scores all tied with minutes remaining. Fridd took his chance to win the game in the dying seconds with a drop goal that went agonisingly close to going over the posts, only to slide past on the full-time whistle.

Chinese village needs creative solution I

t is important for any community to preserve its past. That past tells the story of where we have come from, the things, events and people that have shaped the place we call home. It puts today in perspective, But with any preservation of the past there needs to be a balance between what’s desireable and the cost of doing this. Sometimes the price is simply too high. And that could well be the case with Ashburton’s Allens Road Chinese Settlement. The land was home to our early Chinese settlers, the men who left their homeland and established market gardens that fed the community from a settlement that became both their

home and their workplace. The buildings on that settlement were never meant to last. They were built with whatever was at hand and were probably erected as quickly and as economically as possible. None of that ensures longevity. Over time the Chinese settlers moved on or moved out and the once thriving market garden became deserted space. Its buildings slowly sank on their foundations as weather and time

took their toll. What those Chinese market gardeners did not do was to formally pass ownership of their land to their descendants. And today, that makes unravelling the rightful ownership of that land a many layered and infinitely difficult and costly exercise. Rightly or wrongly a deal was struck that has passed the problem on to the Ashburton District Council. The descendants still own the land but the council has agreed to become its custodian, restoring its buildings and effectively turning the site into a memorial to the early Chinese settlers. Those are all very laudable aims, but at what cost? You have to ask, did the council really understand the complexity of the

task they were taking on? Looking at it realistically, given the state of most of the buildings, restoration is not a cost effective option. But what is? The council has a moral responsibility to do something to preserve the site, but it’s likely ratepayers won’t have an appetite for lavish spending. Perhaps there are other options that should be explored as a growing number of Guardian letter writers suggest. The tide of feeling appears to support taking a more radical approach to the problem. It’s unlikely neither the council nor the families will be keen on a wholesale demolition and clearly the land cannot be sold in part or whole. That means a middle ground must be found, one that’s

financially and morally right. That middle ground could see only one or two of the buildings in most salvageable condition saved. If they were restored to a point where they were safe to use, they could become home to a story board display area that in words and photos gave visitors a glimpse into the lives of those Chinese settlers. This would effectively create a memorial enclave that could become an attraction in its own right. The surrounding land could then be landscaped, grassed and turned into another local park. It would then make an extension of the Argyle Park walkway a must do project to complete foot access from Farm Road to Belt Road.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, August 4, the 216th day of 2018. There are 149 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On August 4, 1944, 15-year-old diarist Anne Frank was arrested with her sister, parents and four others by the Gestapo after hiding for two years inside a building in Amsterdam. (Anne and her sister, Margot, died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.) On this date: In 1790, the US Coast Guard had its beginnings as President George Washington signed a measure authorising a group of revenue cutters to enforce tariff and trade laws and prevent smuggling. In 1892, businessman Andrew Borden and his wife, Abby, were axed to death in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts. Lizzie Borden, Andrew’s daughter from a previous marriage, was accused of the killings, but acquitted at trial. In 1914, Britain declared war on Germany for invading Belgium; the United States proclaimed its neutrality in the mushrooming world conflict. In 1936, Jesse Owens of the US won the second of his four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics as he prevailed in the long jump over German Luz Long, who was the first to congratulate him. In 1964, the bodies of missing civil rights workers Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney were found buried in an earthen dam in Mississippi. In 1972, Arthur Bremer was convicted and sentenced to 63 years in prison for his attempt on the life of Alabama Governor George C. Wallace (the sentence was later reduced to 53 years; Bremer was released in 2007). In 1977, President Jimmy Carter signed a measure establishing the Department of Energy.

o National leader, Simon “Tomorrow Will Come Sooner Than You Think” Bridges, is a wow on the drums. Not a lot of people would have known that. At the National Party Convention this week – yes, convention; shades of the four-year Democratic and Republican gatherings in the United States held to select their presidential candidates – the upwardly mobile, new-leader-in-a-hurry gave a dazzling display of stick (drum) wizardry to get National feet in the hall tapping and would-be voters everywhere, in awe at this striking demo of “young” Simon’s all-round talents. However, without wishing to pour water on the parade – or words to that effect – one would have to say his subsequent big policy speech, in which he outlined his plans for smaller primary school classes, though worthy, had to be seen as something of an anti-climax after the noisy ballyhoo that preceded it. What’s more, Labour had been there before. It will need more than that to have National marching to the Promised Land in 2020, if not before, if the uneasy coalition by which we are currently governed, suddenly implodes, which could well be on the cards. Thus, the jury on the future of the “new” National Party is still, in that immortal word, “out” and the verdict pending.

Elsewhere – and by the time this piece reaches you in Ashburton – the acting PM, The Honourable Winston Peters, will have vacated his chair in the Prime Ministerial office on the ninth floor of the Beehive in favour of the real PM, Ms Jacinda Ardern. Before he exits the room for good, one hopes Winston will have cleared out his desk drawers and removed unfinished packets of his favourite fags, and whisky bottles containing various quantities of his tippleof-taste. While he was about it, I trust he will also have organised a thorough fumigating of the said office so that dying traces of nicotine and the heavily-impregnated whisky atmosphere will have lost their bite and bluster as the utterly unsullied Jacinda resumes her rightful place. I understand that by the time she does that Winston will be well on his way to Argentina, not all that far from Guatemala as I suggested last week. Presumably, he will just have had time to

swap one past-its-best, doublebreasted dark suit for another. At the end of Jacinda’s first day back it is essential she does not return to baby Neve and First Bloke Clarke reeking of the noxious gases of Winston’s temporary tenure of her nerve centre. That tenure of Winston’s can be said to have ended in a blaze of Peters’ customary media bashing, which differs little from the manic outbursts of the Man in the White House. Many of Winston’s comments about the Fourth Estate are as depressing and dangerous as Trump’s. It’s hardly surprising, therefore, he finds Winston “a good man”. As we well know, praise from the current US President is the beginning of the end, the start of a downward spiral from which there can be no return. The acting Prime Minister also launched a rant and a roar on the accuracy of conventional political polls before finally closing the door on his wayward career. As he wanders the streets of

Buenos Aires this weekend he may begin to cast his mind back to the his erratic political progress over the years, soon to become a mere historical footnote. He has been a one-man show. We shall not see his like again. Meanwhile, we hear Jacinda and Donald have been exchanging billet doux in recent times. Thus it may be that baby Neve will soon be getting a cuddle from the Most Powerful Man currently on the planet (and, it is said, well beyond) that Big Softie in Washington DC Uncle Donald. She may even get a small bite of his latest cheeseberger, though Mummy may not be too keen on that. (Even for the sake of NZ/US relations.)

The Allens Road buildings.

I whole heartily agree with the comments Mary Dickson made regarding the old Chinese buildings on Allens Road in the Guardian, Tuesday July 31. It definitely would be a waste of money, trying to repair and restore these old buildings long past their use by date. The money could well be used to clear the site of all old buildings and a small kiosk type building be

built with Chinese architecture in mind and a Chinese garden created. The kiosk could house literature and photos recording the Chinese history in Ashburton. This would create an area to be more likely visited by the general public than a few old buildings. The rest of the land could possibly be sold off as building sections and the profits used to help Chinese welfare in New Zealand. Maybe councillor Brown could

donate his time and expertise, to design such an area. J. and D. Bruce

Special show for ill fan US pop superstar Katy Perry has shared heartwarming videos of her meeting with young Adelaide fan Grace Moores, lauding the power of the internet for bringing the eight-year-old’s plight to her attention. The Teenage Dream singer posted the footage on her Instagram account, showing her singing her charttopping hit Firework with Grace, who’s battling brain cancer. “Grace, you know you’re probably the first person I’ve ever come to their house and done a concert for,” Katy tells her. Grace underwent surgery last Wednesday, preventing her from attending Katy’s concert on Monday.

Incumbent wins election Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa won election yesterday with just over 50 per cent of the ballots as the ruling party maintained control of the government in the first vote since the fall of longtime leader Robert Mugabe. Mnangagwa received 50.8 per cent of the vote while main opposition challenger Nelson Chamisa received 44.3 per cent. The opposition is almost certain to challenge the results in the courts or in the streets. While election day was peaceful in a break from the past, deadly violence against people protesting alleged vote-rigging reminded many Zimbabweans of the decades of military-backed repression under Mugabe.

Zimbabwe’s president says he is “humbled” by his win. “Though we may have been divided at the polls, we are united in our dreams,” Mnangagwa said on Twitter. “This is a new beginning. Let us join hands, in peace, unity & love, & together build a new Zimbabwe for all!” Mnangagwa tweeted, after a week that began with peaceful voting but spiralled into deadly violence in the capital as the military fired on protesters. Western election observers who were banned in previous votes have expressed concern at the military’s “excessive” force in the capital, Harare. Their assessments of the election are crucial to the lifting of international sanctions on a

country whose economy collapsed years ago. Shortly before the election commission’s announcement, Morgen Komichi, the chief agent for Chamisa’s opposition alliance, took the stage and said his party “totally rejects” the results and said he had not signed the election results. Police escorted him from the room. Later Komichi said the elections were “fraudulent” and “everything has been done illegally”. He said he had refused an electoral commission request to sign papers certifying Mnangagwa’s win. “We’re not part of it,” said Komichi, adding that the opposition would be challenging the election in the courts.

Commission chair Priscilla Chigumba urged the country to “move on” with the hopeful spirit of election day and beyond the “blemishes” of chaos: “May God bless this nation and its people.” With the military still deployed in Harare, the capital’s streets were quiet following the announcement of Mnangagwa’s victory. By the centre where the election results were announced, Charity Manyeruke, who teaches political science at the University of Zimbabwe, said she was delighted. “There is continuity, stability,” Manyeruke said. “Zimbabwe is poised for nationbuilding.” - AP

ALF’s coming back Any child of the ’80s will remember ALF. ALF, which stands for Alien Life Form, was inescapable during its run from 1986-1990. The wisecracking alien, named Gordon Shumway, came to live with the Tanner family after he crashed into their garage from his planet Melmac. The Tanners made him part of their family, despite his relentless attempts to eat their cat, Lucky. They also try and hide him from their nosy neighbours. EW confirmed that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of redeveloping the show, with original creators Tom Patchett and Paul Fusco on board. Fusco was the voice of ALF, while Patchett operated the puppet.


Death penalty is ‘inadmissible’ – Pope Pope Francis has decreed that the death penalty is “inadmissible” under all circumstances and the Catholic Church should campaign to abolish it, a change in church teaching that could influence Catholic politicians and judges in the U.S. and across the globe. The change, announced yesterday, was hailed by antideath penalty activists and scorned by Francis’ frequent conservative critics, who said he had no right to change what Scripture revealed and popes have taught for centuries. The Vatican said that Francis had amended the Cate-

chism of the Catholic Church – the compilation of official Catholic teaching – to say that capital punishment can never be sanctioned because it constitutes an “attack” on the dignity of human beings. Previously, the catechism said the church didn’t exclude recourse to capital punishment “if this is the only possible way of effectively defending human lives against the unjust aggressor”. Past popes have upheld that position, though St. John Paul II began urging an end to the practice and stressed that the guilty were just as deserving of dig-

nity as innocents. The new teaching says the previous policy is outdated because there are new ways to protect the common good, and the church should instead commit itself to working to end capital punishment. “Recourse to the death penalty on the part of legitimate authority, following a fair trial, was long considered an appropriate response to the gravity of certain crimes and an acceptable, albeit extreme means of safeguarding the common good,” reads the new text. Today “there is an increas-

ing awareness that the dignity of the person is not lost even after the commission of very serious crimes,” it said, adding that society now has effective ways to detain prisoners so they aren’t a threat and even provide the possibility of rehabilitation. “Consequently, the church teaches, in the light of the Gospel, that the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person and she works with determination for its abolition worldwide,” reads the new text, which was originally approved in May. - AP

The 52-year-old is now insisting he can’t cover the bills as he can’t find “steady acting work” and has less than $10 million to his name, prompting him to file a request to pay less to his children.

Hot air brings scorching heat Hot air from Africa is bringing a new heatwave to Europe, prompting health warnings about Sahara Desert dust and exceptionally high temperatures that are forecast to peak at 47 degrees Celsius in some southern areas. The torrid weather meant that public services were put on alert in Spain and Portugal. Temperatures were forecast to reach 44 degrees yesterday in the Portuguese city of Evora, 130 kilometres east of the capital of Lisbon, and in the Spanish province of Badajoz, across the border. A hot air mass was moving northward from Africa, authorities said, warning that the mercury could peak at 47 degrees Celsius this weekend in the southern Portuguese town of Beja. Portuguese authorities issued a nationwide health warning, including for dust from the Sahara Desert. Warnings were also issued for 40 of Spain’s 50 provinces. Up north in Sweden, the country’s official tallest point is set to change amid record temperatures. Scientists said a glacier on Mount Kebne, the Scandinavian country’s highest peak at 2111 metres, is melting and is no longer Sweden’s tallest point.

Woman slapped by harasser says new law falls short

Marble mine collapses; one dead

A 22-year-old woman who is becoming a symbol of sexual harassment on France’s streets said yesterday that a new law banning offensive comments and behavior isn’t enough to stop them. Marie Laguerre said she has received messages of thanks from women and men for posting a video of a man slapping her last month in eastern Paris. Surveillance cameras recorded the violent encounter after she told the man to shut up for making obscene sounds at her, she said. While the footage went viral after she publicised it, Laguerre said she thinks punishing harassers won’t address the problem as much as changing attitudes through education. The law is “almost a joke,” Laguerre, a student, said. “I don’t think it’s realistic because it means having police officers on every street” and officers also need to be educated to recognise harassing behaviour. French lawmakers approved a bill to outlaw gender-based harassment on the streets and public transportation. The law allows for fines of 90750 euros for sexual or sexist comments and behaviour that is degrading, humiliating, intimi-

It also authorises a fine of up to 15,000 euros and a year in prison as possible sentences for “upskirting” – taking pictures or videos under clothing without consent. “The law sends a message, but for me it’s not enough,” Laguerre said, noting that French President Emmanuel Macron prom-

The law, which is set to take effect in September, also expands the criminal definition of child rape to cover cases involving an adult and a child under age 15 if a judge determines the minor lacked the ability to consent. - AP

Part of a marble mine collapsed yesterday in the central Mexican state of Hidalgo, causing one confirmed death and leaving four miners missing, state officials said. Hidalgo’s government said in a statement posted on its Facebook page that the collapse occurred in a locality known as Dengantzha in the Francisco I. Madero township. It said the state prosecutor’s office confirmed that one body had been recovered and the search continued for four miners believed to be trapped under rock. The missing people were inside a vehicle that was traveling on one of the mine’s roads when the collapse occurred, the statement said. The recovered body was a local shepherd, authorities said. It was not immediately clear where the victim had been at the time of the collapse. Gov. Omar Fayad said via Twitter that the search would continue and that the state was offering support to the affected families. Images from the scene appeared to show a collapsed section of an open-pit mine with rescuers and civilians climbing among car-size boulders. - AP

Cheesy ice cream an acquired taste An Auckland eatery has blended cheese with a quintessential Kiwi frozen treat. Malaysian chain Hokkaido is famous around Asia for its baked cheese tarts, but since opening a shop on Auckland’s Queen St last year it has started selling cheesy soft-serve icecream. The eatery is one of an increasing number around Auckland with food offerings some might consider more weird than wonderful. A taste test by the Weekend Herald confirmed the ice-cream was most definitely an acquired taste. While an initial lick left a mildly sweet, cheesy flavour in the mouth, it wasn’t long before a strong, almost blue cheeselike aftertaste set in. The company introduced its cheesy confection late last year – just in time for summer. Plans were in place to begin

offering the soft serve in a cup – with sweet and savoury toppings available for a sundae-bar scenario. Store owner Shing Jian Liaw said the cheese tarts, which were also available in strawberry and blueberry flavours, remained the firm favourite with customers. “They’re quite unique,” he said. “There is a trend picking up where customers like having their tart as a snack with coffee.” Rows of the sweet pastry cases lined a cabinet at the front of the Queen Street store, filled with a gooey baked cheese. The filling had a creme brulee-like appearance from the outside, but a taste confirmed it was firmly in the savoury camp. A few streets away, newly opened Barby’s Bakery fused chocolate and cheese, or doughnuts and noodles in the creation of Indonesian baked goods. - NZME

For more than 20 years, three Ashburton men have watched the business they founded grow from fledgling, to establishing a reputation as a significant national player and this week to becoming part of an international business network. On Wednesday, CM Trailer Parts became part of DexKo Global, a leader in highly engineered trailer running gear, chassis assemblies and related components. The sale was initiated by DexKo’s Australasian arm, Al-Ko to enable it to expand its New Zealand operation into the South Island. General manager James Taylor and operations and projects manager Alasdair Cleland started the business in 1992 and seven years later were joined by sales manager Mark Havis. The three built the small business from the ground up to its position today as an industry leader. Taylor and Cleland used their shared experience in the motor industry’s small parts sector to establish the business in Ashburton’s Triangle. A few years down the track the business moved to Moore Street and 11 years ago relocated to its new headquarters in the Riverside Industrial Estate. Today their company is a leading supplier of caravan and trailer

axles, leaf springs, couplings and other trailer components, serving multiple market segments across New Zealand. Taylor said the business today had a very strong brand with high quality products and high quality service. The sale was initiated by a DexKo executive, and the decision to sell was a very tough one, he said. “A lot of factors were involved and for us it was critical that our staff remained. Basically there will be no changes, it will be business as normal for all of us. This felt like the right fit for us, it will take our brand forward throughout the country.” The company will continue to be known as CM Trailer Parts and the management team of three will remain in their positions. “Becoming part of the DexKo family will allow the business to continue to grow with the backing of an industry leader and I’m confident that uniting with DexKo will be very beneficial for both our customers and employees,” Taylor said. Being part of an international company would also allow the company to achieve some of the things it may not have been able to achieve on its own, Cleland said. “For them buying the CM Trailer Parts brand is where a lot of the

value is because it’s at the top of its game in New Zealand and for us, we’re now part of a huge global network,” he said. Being part of the greater DexKo family would open up opportunities for staff as well, Havis said. “They are a very people-minded company, they do so much for their staff. This is a big journey for the CM family. It’s very positive and the brand will grow significantly,” he said. In welcoming CM Trailer Parts to the DexKo Global team, chief executive Fred Bentley said the acquisition brought a South Island distribution and product assembly facility to its New Zealand business footprint. “This will help the company service the whole market better with our range of axle and brake products and we truly believe together it is better for all of our businesses.” Harald Hiller, global President and CEO of Al-Ko Vehicle Technology emphasised the benefits for customers: “We continue to add strong brands to our global portfolio and offer additional quality products to our customers. This integration will further expand our core business, which will allow us to service our customers with an even broader range of solutions,” he said.

Celtic pushed to the limit BY ERIN TASKER


Celtic A have survived another scare to maintain their unblemished record in Mid Canterbury Netball’s ACL premier one competition this season. The third games of the third and final round of the competition played out at Ashburton’s EA Networks Centre on Thursday night, where it was Celtic A, College A and Methven A who took out the night’s wins. The results meant Celtic A continued to lead the way on the leaderboard with 12 points thanks to three wins from three, while Methven A and College A were now in joint second on eight points with two wins each, with Hampstead on six thanks to a win and two bonus points, while Mt Somers were on five and Celtic B on two. Celtic A had a fight on their hands to keep their place at the top when they took on Hampstead A on Thursday night though, with Hampstead leading 8-7 at the first break. Celtic gained a vital edge in the second and third quarters and got in front 16-14 at halftime and had added one more goal to their lead by three quarter time, up 2521. Hampstead fought hard and ended the game the way they started, by winning the final quarter, but just went down 31-28. Hampstead A coach Janene McDowell said she was proud of her side’s performance, and happy to take a bonus point out of the match. “The team stayed focused, composed and played a game that enabled us to stay on the tails of Celtic for the entire game,” McDowell said. Celtic A coach Angela Leadley said her side’s patience on attack paid off in what was a great game of netball. “Hampstead pushed us and we were pleased we rose to the challenge,” Leadley said. Mt Somers also pushed their opposition this week, bouncing back from a heavy loss to Ashburton College A to test Methven A, with the latter eventually taking it out 37-34. Methven A led at every break, but there wasn’t much in it. They led by just one goal at the end of the game’s first two quarters but put a little more space

between the two sides in the third quarter, leading 30-27 at three quarter time and maintaining that three-goal advantage to the end. Methven A coach Maree Firth said Mt Somers did a fantastic job of applying pressure throughout the court. “We created some good turnovers and converted a number of them to see us out the front for all quarters,” she said. Mt Somers captain Kate Oliver said her side tried out some new attacking combinations in what was hard-fought game. “Methven held their heads steady throughout the game and got some crucial turnovers,” Oliver said. “We had some opportunities to level but couldn’t convert.”

Overall, she was happy with her side’s performance though, which was a big improvement on the week prior. They lost 38-21 to Ashburton College A last week, and the young College side had a good day at the office this week too, beating Celtic B 38-29. Celtic B were the team promoted to premier one from premier two for the third round and in each of their three games in the top flight so far they’d shown they were more than worthy of the grade. Thursday night’s match was no exception, as they led College A 12-9 at the first break and stretched that lead out to 19-15 at halftime. But College A came back and shot ahead to lead 26-23 at three

quarter time, and 38-29 at the final whistle. Celtic B coach Di Ness said her side played a good defensive game and while she was happy with the performance, College A really upped their game in the second half. “We need to play consistently for the whole 40 minutes and finish,” Ness said. College A coach Kaye Kennedy said her side regained their composure in the second half, with some amazing total team defence creating turnovers. The win came a day after College A beat Rangi Ruru 40-27 in Canterbury secondary school netball’s SuperNet competition in Christchurch. “We’ve had a really good week and are pleased we seem to be

peaking at the right time,” Kennedy said. Meanwhile in premier two, the team relegated for the third round – United A – continued to shape to be the team to beat with a 41-32 win over Southern A, the team relegated from premier one after the first round. Ashburton College B also picked up another win, downing Methven B 36-27, while Celtic C were too good for Rakaia A, winning 41-23. Ten of those who took to the court for their club teams on Thursday night would be back out on court tomorrow, but this time in Timaru as part of the Mid Canterbury senior netball team at their annual Hanan Shield tournament against South Canterbury and North Otago.

It’s the right time to go



which went for 67 games unbeaten – then the seniors, before moving to Mid Canterbury and turning his focus back to under-18s with Southern. He then moved up to the under20s, but that was in the days when things weren’t looking so good at Southern. The club’s senior side was in danger of folding, and not wanting that to happen the decision was made to take the better players from the Southern under-20s and move them up to the seniors. “We got a few hidings that year and the following year we were top of the table,” Foxcroft said. The coach of the senior side that first year was Trevor Bokser, and when the decision was made to move the under-20 players up to focus on the seniors, Foxcroft went with them and he and Bokser formed what would prove to be a pretty formidable coaching duo. One of the highlights of Foxcroft’s coaching career came in 2003 when they took out the then Mid Canterbury and Ellesmere combined competition with another Mid Canterbury

club side – Celtic – when they drew the final played at Hornby. Foxcroft and Bokser went on to coach Mid Canterbury in the Heartland Championship for four years, finishing second twice, third and fourth. The most devastating year was their loss in the final to Wanganui in 2009. Mid Canterbury earned the right to host the final, but it had to be moved to Rugby Park in Christchurch due to a clash with the Ashburton A&P Show. Mid Canterbury led at halftime but were chased down by Wanganui in the second half, losing 34-13. Had that final been played in Ashburton, Foxcroft had little doubt his side would have won. After Mid Canterbury, Foxcroft headed to Rakaia. That was eight years ago, at a time when Rakaia was putting a team in senior for the first time, and Foxcroft and Craig Dunlea were at the helm. They took Rakaia to the Watters Cup final in 2011, where they broke a 31-year drought and lifted the trophy after beating Southern 15-0. They won it again in 2013, 2014 and 2015, all against Methven, before sharing it with Southern in 2016 after a drawn final, before losing to Southern in last year’s final. Having made the decision that 2018


Wayne Foxcroft admits it was an odd feeling, walking off towards the changing rooms after Rakaia’s loss to Southern in Mid Canterbury’s Watters Cup preliminary final last Saturday. After 30 years it was the final time he would make that walk as the head coach of a rugby team, and it wasn’t the way he’d hoped to go out. Ideally he’d have been doing that final walk off the paddock today, as part of a victorious Watters Cup-winning Rakaia side, but it wasn’t to be. Over the years he’d coached sides to somewhere in the vicinity of 18 or 19 titles and he would have loved to have finished on a winning note. But last weekend’s loss to Southern meant Rakaia’s seniors wouldn’t feature on finals day today, despite having proven themselves as the top Mid Canterbury team in this season’s combined competition. They made the final of that competition, but lost to Waihora, just like they did in the final to Southbridge the year before. In fact, last year they lost two finals, also beaten in the Watters Cup final by Southern, the team they drew with in the Watters Cup final the year before. Today, Foxcroft would be there when the Watters Cup went on the line once again, but only as another interested spectator for the first time in recent years.

And while his head told him Celtic would win, his heart was with Southern. Although he’d spent the past eight years coaching the Rakaia seniors, the first Mid Canterbury side Foxcroft coached was at Southern back in 1997. He came to Mid Canterbury from South Canterbury, where he’d started his coaching career after injury forced him to hang up his own boots a few years earlier than he’d hoped. Temuka was his club. He started playing for the club’s senior side in 1978 as a freshfaced 18-year-old at both secondfive and halfback. He formed a pretty decent combination with the side’s centre which once saw them described in the local newspaper as the “demolition squad, because we used to go out and just flatten people”, Foxcroft said. He won eight championships with Temuka as a player and went on to win three as a coach. He started with the Temuka under-18s before moving up to the under-20s, senior Bs – coaching a side

would be his swansong, Foxcroft would have loved to have gone out on a winning note, but it wasn’t to be. The time was right to finish up though. “I’m getting older and the time … it just felt like it was time to go. I still love the game, but the desire and the want to be there was just starting to wear a bit thin,” Foxcroft said. He wasn’t ruling out coaching in the future altogether, but said his days of being head coach were gone. “I’d certainly help any club or any coach who wanted a hand, I’d be more than happy to be available,” Foxcroft said. There had been plenty of good times, and he’d coached some pretty handy players over the years, one of the best being Brendan Laney in his Temuka days. Laney went on to play for Otago and Scotland. Foxcroft said he looked forward to seeing what the future held for Mid Canterbury Rugby, and had his own beliefs as to what needed to happen. Foxcroft said he firmly believed that the Luisetti Country Cup, the competition featuring senior teams from Mid Canterbury, Ellesmere and North Canterbury, was not only the biggest in the country, but it was also the best. But, with just five of those teams coming from Mid Canterbury, he believed a change needed to be made in the future. “We are going to be down to four teams in time, and we need to move now rather than later,” Foxcroft said. “To me we have got to amalgamate with Ellesmere and forget all the history, and look ahead.” Ellesmere had 10 teams in this year’s combined competition. “To me if we can amalgamate with them, those players will get experience and our Heartland side will be one of the best sides in the country,” Foxcroft said.

By 5pm tonight we will know who Mid Canterbury Rugby’s 2018 Watters Cup champions are. Will it be Southern, the defending champions, or Celtic, a side which hasn’t played in a final since 2012 and hasn’t won the title since 2006? After a tight competition they were the two teams who had come out on top, and today one of them will be crowned this season’s champions. Southern were the competition’s early frontrunners, starting with a 41-32 win over Methven, then edging out Celtic 37-32, before being surprised by Hampstead in week three, just like the other three teams in the competition were. Hampstead hadn’t won a Watters Cup game in nine years, but after testing Celtic and almost toppling Rakaia, they led Southern at halftime. Southern’s class shone through in the end though and they won 45-15. The big result of Southern’s season however, came in their final game where they led Rakaia at halftime, only for the game to race away from them in the sec-

ond half, losing 48-24. Heading into that match, Southern were top of the table and had they won, they would have gone straight to the final, and had a week off to prepare for Mid Canterbury Rugby’s big dance while two other teams fought it out for the right to play them. But that loss allowed Celtic to leapfrog them and finish top of

came up against the team they’d face in today’s final and suffered their sole loss. The bye followed, before Celtic took on the runners-up from the combined competition, Rakaia. There, Celtic handed Rakaia their first loss of the local competition 46-38. They then took on Methven in the final round and won 31-14 in howling winds and driving rain at the Methven Domain. Conditions are expected to be better today, with the forecast for morning and evening cloud but an otherwise fine day with a high of 11 degrees. The Mid Canterbury Rugby Union has brought the start time of the big final forward slightly, to 2.15pm today, to allow for 10 minutes of extra time should it be needed. That was a change brought in after the 2017 final finished in another draw, between Southern and Rakaia. The earlier start time was also to allow time for a new feature of finals day, which was a medal presentation. All members of the Watters Cup winning side would be presented with a medal – the first time that had been done.

Today one of them will be crowned this season’s champions the table, having a week off while Southern and Rakaia battled it out for the second week running for that second spot in the final. Another classic match ensued, but this time it was Southern who prevailed, 48-40, to go through to the final. At the other end of the field today they’d find a determined Celtic side, eager to get their hands back on the Watters Cup after a long drought.

Determined underdogs By Erin TaskEr

Despite finishing top of the table, Celtic see themselves as the underdogs heading into today’s Watters Cup final. It was to be Celtic’s first appearance in Mid Canterbury Rugby’s big show since 2012. They hadn’t won it since 2006, and they were up against a side with a strong recent history in the competition, who had already beaten them twice this season. Celtic coach Shane Enright said that was why, despite having proven to be the best team in terms of points on the table in the Watters Cup round robin, they were the underdogs. But they’d be determined underdogs, hungry for their first taste of Mid Canterbury Rugby supremacy in 12 long years. “We are the underdogs. “We are lacking the experience, but we will bring the enthusiasm and the youth and do our best for ourselves, our friends and families, and our club,” Enright said. Celtic finished top of the table to go straight to the final, earning a week off while Southern and Rakaia battled it out for the right to the other spot in the final, and whether that week off would turn out to be a good thing or a bad thing remained to be seen. Celtic knew they were in for a battle.

Celtic will today contest their first Watters Cup final since 2012.

today, for what would also be Enright’s first Watters Cup final. In fact, despite having coached senior sides in Mid Canterbury for a number of seasons, he couldn’t remember ever having even been to a finals day. In the past his teams were out of the running, so he just waited until Monday’s paper to find out who won. But this year he would be there, front and centre. He was excited, and his players were too, and he hoped that the

eagerness and desire to do it for their club would see Celtic to the title. “We won’t die wondering. We will give it our best shot, and if we win, we win,” Enright said. Enright said Southern were a clinical side. Their forwards were strong, and they were formidable at line-out and scrum time. But he said Celtic had their strengths, too. “Probably our strength is when we play as a team, and we play our

They’d played Southern twice this season, and lost on both occasions, and Southern was a far more experienced side when it came to finals rugby, Enright said. Celtic last made a Watters Cup final in 2012, where they lost to Methven, and only four players who were there that day were in the team which would run out onto the field for a second shot at Mid Canterbury rugby supremacy today. One of those players was Danny Hurley, who will captain the side

style of play that we want to play. “That’s when we have looked the best, when we have that belief in each other,” Enright said. He was urging his side to respect the occasion. “We can’t treat it just like another game, because it’s not. “Embrace it all and treat it like something special, because it is,” Enright said. Enright said his side was yet to play to their potential this season. “I think we have got better over the past couple of games but probably not 100 per cent yet, and it would be nice if that happened on Saturday,” Enright said. Celtic had a fully fit squad to pick from today, with only one player – Kirk Chettleburgh – missing. He headed overseas a few days ago, having booked his flights months ago based on last year’s finals dates, but the season had dragged on longer this year due to extra teams being added to the season opening Mid Canterbury, Ellesmere and North Canterbury combined competition. Celtic were disappointed not to make the finals of that competition. But now they had a chance to make amends, and win Mid Canterbury Rugby’s biggest prize instead, and Enright said they’d be doing everything they could to make that happen.

Forwards hold the key By Erin TaskEr

They may have history on their side, but Southern head into today’s Watters Cup final against Celtic knowing all too well that anything can happen in finals footy. Southern had played in their fair share of finals in recent years. They headed into today’s match as the defending champions after beating Rakaia in the final last year, 12 months after drawing the 2017 final with the same team. “But the guys will be going out there to win it, they aren’t going out there to defend it,” Southern coach Andrew Carr said. Most of today’s Southern side had experienced Watters Cup finals rugby before with the exception of their two overseas players, Alex Walker from Japan and Dalton Kannemeyer from South Africa, and Bernie Doyle who had made the step up from senior Bs and Dean Malcolm who transferred from Kurow earlier in the season, Carr said. “Experience is good, but it all comes down to who wants it the most. “They haven’t been to the final for a while, so they will have extra motivation and hunger, but it’s up to our boys to try nullify that.” Celtic hasn’t won the Watters Cup since 2006 when they drew the final with a Southern side that included Carr at prop. Carr was a long-time Southern man, who after years as a player was in his first season of coaching the senior side this year. And like many of his players, Carr was set to spend this morning out in paddocks collecting newborn calves before heading to town

for their biggest game of the season. Carr said probably 75 per cent of his players were farmers. “A lot of them probably won’t have time to think about it that much until they get there, because they will be too busy with calving and things,” Carr said. That could work in their favour, not having the time to over-think it. They were a side known for their strength in the forwards, but they also had flair out wide. Their forwards held the key though, Carr said. “If your forwards don’t perform it makes it pretty hard on the rest of the team, so they need to front up,” Carr said. Heading into last weekend’s must-win match against Southern which earned them the right to play Celtic in today’s final, Southern were in a bit of strife. They’d been hit hard by injury, and four days out, they had just 14 of their usual senior players at training, and two days out they had 17, so they had to call a number of players onto the bench from their B side. They had just one new injury concern heading into the final, and that was prop Aaron Chudleigh, who had made a name for himself this season for his try-scoring ability. But on the flip side, they did have one player potentially ready to come back from injury. Richard Fridd broke his hand playing against Celtic in the Watters Cup round robin a month ago. He had his cast off earlier this week and was a possibility to take to the field, Carr said.

But other than that, the Southern team was likely to be pretty much identical to the one that beat Rakaia last weekend, including the players from the club’s senior B side. They may have been light on players last week, but they had plenty of heart, getting out to an early lead that many at the Hinds Domain would have given Rakaia little chance of chasing down. But they did, and Southern had a fight on their hands in the final 10 minutes to get the win that put them into the final. “We don’t doubt the ability of the guys or the game plan, we just have to have enough players to do it,” Carr said. “We were pretty stoked with the first 50 minutes last week, then obviously Rakaia fought back hard and again we couldn’t get our hands on the ball. “It would have been a good game to watch, if you didn’t have anything riding on it.” As a coach though, it was a touch stressful, and Carr wasn’t expecting it to be any different against Celtic today. Southern may have won their two previous outings against Celtic this season, but they weren’t taking much from those games. “At the end of the day both games have been close. There wasn’t a lot in it, the first game I think was three points and that next one was within seven,” Carr said. “They are a dangerous side especially from broken play, so we have to be on our game and look after the ball. “It comes down to who looks after the ball the most and gets down the right end of the paddock and converts their opportunities.”

Southern first-five Dalton Kannemeyer.

In brief

Marathon again popular Around 800 athletes are set to converge on Lake Hood this weekend for the second South Island Half Marathon. Event organiser John Moore said last year’s inaugural event attracted 716 competitors and as of early this week they’d hit the 750 mark for this year’s event, but by the time racing got under way they were hoping to have over 800 entries. A new feature of the event this year would be a hybrid half marathon, where competitors could run for a bit and walk for a bit. “This has proved popular with 133 people doing this. “Many of these may be stepping up from the walk,” Moore said. He said by the time supporters were added in, it was expected more than 1500 people would be at the lake for the event on Sunday. Competitors were coming

from far and wide to take part. Moore said only 103 of those who had registered by early this week had Mid Canterbury addresses, which meant the event was a great chance to showcase Ashburton and Lake Hood to people from out of town, and a great boost for the economy. “There are competitors from all over New Zealand with over 30 coming from the North Island and runners from Invercargill to Nelson in the South Island, with 315 having Christchurch addresses. They’ve even had runners from overseas, with addresses in the UK, Australia, South Africa, and the USA among the registrations. The walk and hybrid events start at 9.30am and runners start at 10am, while an event for the younger athletes, the KIDZ dash starts at 10.05am. That’s a 1.5km event. The 21km half marathon in-

cludes running, walking and the hybrid section, while there’s also a 1/6 marathon (7km) event also on offer.

The South Island Half Marathon attracts entries from all ages, and from all around New Zealand.

Crusaders end game looms large for Lions Through a combination of fitness and bench strike, the Crusaders have out-scored opponents by 26 tries to five in the final quarter across the season. The nearest any team comes to that in any quarter is the 24 to 12 achieved by the Lions themselves, in the second quarter of games. Crossing the Indian Ocean on Tuesday is likely to weary the legs of the visitors at the 60-minute mark, making their task of clinching a maiden crown even stiffer.

Mid Canterbury United will be hoping their stellar season continues when they take to the field for the second round of Mainland Football’s division two cup knockout competition today. Mid Canterbury United will take on Parklands United at the Ashburton Domain today, after beating Hornby 9-1 a week ago. Also with a championship win already under their belts are Methven FC Senior A. Today they play Burwood AFC at Methven. Both Methven and Mid Canterbury play at 2.30pm.

Sharp end looming


An ability to close games in merciless fashion is what sets the Crusaders apart from the Lions heading into the Super Rugby final. There will be countless factors stacked against the South African visitors in today’s decider in Christchurch but the most compelling is the Crusaders’ late-finishing power. It’s a weapon that looks potent enough to hand them a ninth title.

United still on a roll

While the Crusaders are shortpriced favourites to repeat their 2017 heroics, having seen off the Lions at Ellis Park a year ago, they’re taking little for granted. Star five-eighth Richie Mo’unga said there will be no let-up in their defensive focus, with coach Scott Robertson content to give his players leeway to improvise on attack. “There’s no real structure, we look up and play what we see,” Mo’unga said. “But defence wins

championships. We put it down to how much we want to work for each other. “We’re willing to work harder and longer.” Robertson, in his second year in charge, is yet to oversee a home Super Rugby loss. He was delighted Christchurch is hosting a final for the first time since 2008, when Robbie Deans’ team saw off the Waratahs in the last game of a triumphant coaching tenure. - AAP

With finals just around the corner, two Mid Canterbury senior hockey sides are looking to finish their round robin competitions on a high note today. As it stands, Wakanui top the senior men’s competition, while Hampstead top the senior women’s competition. Wakanui are at home for their final round robin game, taking on Cambridge, while Hampstead are on the road to Timaru today to take on a Craighead side currently fifth, but they’re taking nothing for granted with a home semi-final just around the corner. The Hampstead/ Collegians senior women’s side, are also at home, against Cambridge. That game will hit the turf at 1.30pm, followed by the Wakanui men at 3pm.

Razor a wanted man They play their home games in a stadium with the aesthetics of a car park and all the warmth of an abattoir, but there is hope on the horizon for the Crusaders and their loyal fans as far as a new base goes and reassurance too that their head coach Scott Robertson isn’t going anywhere. The 43-yearold former All Black and Crusader is already being talked about as an All Black coach and will have suitors lining up around the world, but he said he wants to sign an extension to his contract, and stay with his family in Christchurch.


Time for the green machine to hit top gear


t’s an old saying, a long time between drinks. But sometimes it is perfect for the situation. And it’s that situation the mighty green machine finds itself in right now, as in today. It was a about this time in 2006 that Nifty Prendergast held up the Watters Cup, but not by himself. Ironically he had to share that honour with James Carr, skipper of Southern, who happen to be Celtic’s opponents at the Ashburton Showgrounds today. On that occasion it was a day for the kickers, with no tries scored; a highly unlikely outcome today one would have thought. Celtic is a club with a proud Watters Cup history, although if you’d arrived in town in the last decade you might not know it. There’s been many prolonged battles with other clubs over the last few decades. It was Allenton for a while, with

Steve Devereux MY SHOUT

one memorable clash in the pouring rain, with every man tackling like demons (except for Mark Cousins, who tackled like two demons that day from memory) and slogged out an 8-6 win with a late try. Then there was a series of encounters with a stellar Tinwald team, featuring names like Frew, Smitheram, Hill, McCormick and Roulston. Collegiate turned up for a few years, when finally they got their amalgamation act together, with Ross Leadley driving his team around the paddock to pick up three Watters Cups.

But none of those teams are competing in top division any more, while the green machine rolls on. Back in the 70s you had Celtic teams featuring names like Campbell, Prendergast and ‘The Rock’ Harney in the front row, when you add the likes of Mick Hanham, Bruce White and Alan Grieve to that lot you’re going to win more than your fair share of Watters Cups. In the 80s it was Small, O’Grady and Hurley up front, with another, somewhat taller, O’Grady sharing engine room duties with Truck Lawrie, and a few Morrisons, a Langley, a Strange and still one A. Grieve in there flying the flag. But all that was a long time ago. There was the opportunity in 2012 to add another title, but that was snuffed out by the officials. Celtic was leading by a very handy margin, and a Des Kruger penalty would have sealed that

deal good and proper. They’ll deny it now, but I suspect there might be a few deathbed confessions from the Methven players standing behind the sticks that the penalty went over, but the flags stayed down. Methven, with Simon Fleetwood urging on his young charges, took the opportunity given and came roaring back, and left the showgrounds carrying the big prize. There’s a fair bit of history behind today’s players, but they are good enough to carry that weight. They proved that in the game earlier this year when combined competition favourites Southbridge came to Keenans Road, with the green pack being shaded, and the powerful Southbridge runners looking ominous all over the park. The home side must have had Cuz at practice that week though; they tackled and tackled and

tackled, and took their meagre chances when they could, until the final whistle blew with the greens still hanging on to record a memorable victory. They may have to repeat that performance today. From a completely unbiased point of view, Celtic is obviously the best club in town. It has a wide-ranging, go-ahead committee which presides over a superb grounds and clubrooms, the squash club is thriving and has many an interclub pennant on the wall from recent seasons, and the netball girls are sweeping all before them, so much so that the Celtic B team has also made the top grade. Over recent seasons there has in fact only one thing been missing, and that’s the cherry on top of the cake, the Watters Cup. Today a fine group of young men in green will rectify that glaring omission.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): It’s the perfect time to streamline. Cut out the unnecessary to make room for new energy to drop in. This applies across the board, from closets to relationships to work. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): Instead of seeing the world as good or bad, acceptable or not, try seeing it as “for me” or “not for me.” This leads to your own enjoyment or movement. It also leads to peace. GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): This isn’t always going to be who you are. An exciting transformation is underway. Even as you do what it takes to make your current life work, you are thinking of your next move. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): Ask for feedback, and encourage honesty. This means you have to be tough enough to take it and be grateful for it. If you can achieve this, you’ll learn just what you need to know to take it to the next level. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): Today you’ll come across possibilities that fall into a grey area. As long as they are not too expensive, be daring. You have to try new things to find your next favourite. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Imagine your dream partner telling you, “If you were mine, I would...” and then fill in the blank. Now do that thing for yourself. It’s what you really deserve. LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): An exciting turn of events is in the works, but this only benefits you if you are flexible enough to steer into the turn. It will require a fast decision and then the confidence to fully commit. SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): You may receive a compliment or two along with some validating signals that you’re on the right track. Do not relax. Avoid the temptation to bask in your glory. Stay focused on improving. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): If you share a home with others, chances are you do not all enjoy the same food. Focus on your part of it. And whatever your living situation, it’s time to hone your diet without outside influence. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): Choosing whom to reach out to and possibly befriend is a crucial decision that will affect you for years to come. Ask yourself, “Is this someone I would like to be like?” AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): People have trusted you with the kind of information that, if leaked, could sink them. You may be tempted to say what you really should not. It would hurt less to slip with your feet than your mouth. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): For those who can tell the difference between the issues and the nonissues, this will be a pleasant day. Happiness is focusing on what can and/or must be changed and leaving the rest alone.
