Students turn up at school cold, hungry BY KATIE TODD


A good breakfast and warm clothing are crucial to effective learning – but that’s not what all Ashburton College students seem to find, says deputy principal Ron Cresswell. He has issued a “friendly prompt” to parents after noticing a number of students arriving at school cold, wet and dressed in summer uniform, and a growing trend of students skipping breakfast. While he noted that the cold genuinely doesn’t seem to bother them, he said he can’t help but wonder how it helps them learn. He said he is also intrigued about the number of students who “just don’t do breakfast” before school. “It’s scientifically proven to be the most important meal of the day … I know I wouldn’t be able to work without it, anyway.” While both breakfast and clothing come down to the choice of students – “even if Mum tells them to get their coat,” – he said Ashburton College have a number of initiatives to cater for those in genuine need. “There’s always clothing and there’s always food.” The school host a Breakfast Club, where students

■ MT HUTT SKIFIELD Ron Cresswell can get a free hash brown and milo. Also gaining popularity is a table of food provisions at morning break, including home baking and supplies “donated by generous people in the community.” Cresswell said his advice for parents would be to check their children before they go to school. While that comes with inevitable complications, for example if the parents leave for work prior to children, he said he hopes children are able to make the most of their learning. “We like to take pride in looking after our students,” he said.

‘Absolute ripper’ of an opening BY KATIE TODD


Just hours after lifting the access gates yesterday, Mt Hutt Ski Area had already declared it one of the best openings yet. Over 1500 visitors flocked up-hill to make the most of bluebird conditions and one of the best opening snow bases in 10 years. “It’s been an absolute ripper of a day,” general manager of operations James Urquhart said. “I haven’t seen it this good in a long, long time – and I’ve been here for years.” For the first time in more than 20 years all lifts were operating on opening day. Free Amisfield bubbles, hot chocolates and live musical entertainment were flowing, while the first

punters to ride each chairlift were rewarded with congratulatory “First on Triple” t-shirts. Urquhart said he’d noticed a lot of cool Canterbury people among those on the mountain. “It’s such a good vibe. The atmosphere up here is just electric,” he said. “I think a lot of people just took a long weekend – and they’re ecstatic to be here.” In the lead up to opening, the mountain’s infrastructure received a number of improvements, including a 50 per cent increase in snowmaking capacity. Mt Hutt has also effectively doubled its snowmaking capacity for 2018. “We can now operate snow guns on the upper and lower sections of the mountain simultaneously,

Ski Area manager James McKenzie explained. “In the past we had to focus snowmaking on specific areas of the upper mountain due to pumping limitations.” Mt Hutt’s popular Sky High Café has also been renovated to speed up food and coffee service and create more space, and a 44-seat, 4WD bus is set to make car park shuttling more efficient. Urquhart said the weather had been kind over the past week, delivering a dusting of fresh snow on top of that produced by their snowmaking guns. Conditions are set to deteriorate slightly and attract less visitors over the next two days, but the tone is set for the season ahead. “For a first day it’s just been awesome,” he said.

Plea for assistance overwhelming A plea by the Ashburton Museum for memorabilia from the old Tekau Knitwear factory in Ashburton has yielded a trove of garments, documents and memories. The factory, on Allens Road, employed 220 people at its peak and made quality woollen garments, but closed in 2007. Museum manager Tanya Robinson said a public request for information about the factory had been hugely successful. Items brought to the museum at a special Tekau morning tea last month will be used in an exhibition later this month. “It’s a really exciting story,” Robinson told Ashburton District councillors in her monthly report on Thursday. “We had the morning tea, which was almost a reunion for people who worked at the factory. We had three items, now we have had a huge amount of material brought in.” She said the office of senior curator Maryann Cowan now resembled part of the factory itself. Tekau Knitwear was started in 1931 by Frank and Gladys McIntosh and over its lifetime employed hundreds of people in the Ashburton area. “It is an important part of Ashburton’s history,” Cr Russell Ellis said.

Counting the cost of thefts BY KATIE TODD


Theft remains the most common way people become victims of crime in the Ashburton District – and it’s costing us all, say police. Eight motorbikes, seven bicycles, five cars and one boat were among the stolen items reported to Mid Canterbury police stations between April 2017 and April 2018 by 637 individual victims of theft. The figures, obtained from police data, show an eight per cent decrease in thefts on the year before (694 victimisations), however Senior Sergeant Phil Dean said the figure is “still too high”. “On one hand there’s the cost to the individual, but there’s also the social cost,” he said. “We all end up paying more anyway, in the shops and through

our insurance premiums.” For crimes where the day and time could be pinpointed, Saturdays proved the most common and Tuesdays the least.

The Ashburton CBD was where most crimes occurred per capita, and Allenton west and Rakaia among the least. Dean said the most common

types of theft were petrol station drive-offs and shoplifting. Police were working with petrol stations around the country and encouraging them to operate on a prepay-only basis to lower the number of drive-offs. Dean said police were also working to tackle recidivist shoplifters, who were relatively uncommon in Ashburton, but could come from Christchurch to try their luck with our town’s retailers. However, that’s where networks become handy. For the past two years, Ashburton shopkeepers had been among those using an app to warn one another if they suspect a shoplifter is in their midst, he said. Other facial recognition technologies like AUROR were quickly gaining traction in supermarkets

and malls across Australasia, and held promise for the future. When it came to individual actions, Dean stressed the importance of reporting crime. “People see theft and yet don’t know what to do about it. We’d encourage them to phone us straight away and notify the shop themselves, or if they wish to stay anonymous call Crimestoppers [on 0800 555 111]” There was less under-reporting of crime in a town like Ashburton than a bigger city than Christchurch, he said – but the more police are aware of the better they can help tackle the true face of crime. “Right across New Zealand theft is one of those things that causes problems. We want to do anything we can do to reduce the risk,” he said.

Ploughing gets competitive Mid Canterbury Vintage Machinery Club member Gordon Carter, of Rakaia, helps prepare the ground for the club’s annual ploughing competition, to be held tomorrow. The winner of the event qualifies to compete in next year’s New Zealand Ploughing Championships, to be held at Chertsey on May 11 and 12. Tomorrow’s competition has attracted nine entries in the Silver Plough category, seven in vintage qualifying, seven in vintage open and two horse teams. Competitors are coming from as far afield as Southland and the North Island, and World Ploughing Association president Colin Millar will also be present. The bulk of the ploughing, which is being held on Christys Road (signposted from Beach Road) will be held from just after noon to about 2.30pm. Similar events are being held today in Hinds, and next weekend in Methven and Rakaia. PHOTO COLIN WILLISCROFT 070618-CW-005

Police get their man By Katie todd

A man has been positively identified following an appeal for information last week. Ashburton police were seeking any information on the identity of a man photographed at a local dairy, in relation to a recent crime spike involving thefts from vehicles. Detective Sergeant Leigh Jenkins said police are appreciative of the public’s help. “The man in the pictures has now been positively identified as a result of the enquiry, and will be placed before the courts,” he said. Police were unable to confirm what charges the

man will face, however this is expected to be known shortly. Ashburton police have recently reopened enquiry into a number of complaints about thefts from cars which took place earlier this year.

Lambing kicks off early Lambing got into swing over Queen’s Birthday weekend on Graham Matthews’ leased eight hectare block on the outskirts of Ashburton. The former farmer these days just runs a mob of about 80 poll Dorset Wiltshire cross ewes and he puts the ram in with them in early January. So far 40 of the ewes have lambed, producing 30 live sets of twins. The lambs will be drafted in October. Last year Matthews sent just over 70 lambs to Coalgate to be sold, where he received an average price of $150 a lamb. PHOTO COLIN WILLISCROFT 080618-CW-003

We all want to improve water – MHV boss About a year ago Mel Brooks gave up her corporate banking job to take up a new position, based in Ashburton, as chief executive of MHV Water, one of the largest irrigation schemes in the country. When growing up, Brooks and her brother, like many of their generation, visited their farmbased cousins for lambing, tailing, duck shooting and shearing – times when family came together to work, laugh and reconnect. Fast forward many years and Brooks has reconnected with the Mid Canterbury community, this time as leader of the MHV Water team. The co-operative has 206 shareholders, all of whom are farmers who use the scheme’s infrastructure to deliver water to their properties. “We have a large infrastructure footprint and we also manage the environmental compliance of our shareholders,” Brooks said. “We take kaitiakitanga or guardianship of the land very seriously.” She said that over the years farming had unintentionally contributed to a deterioration in water quality and MHV Water wants to make it right. However, she admits to being frustrated when the media picks up on a sensationalised story or someone is looking to push their own agenda at the expense of farmers. “But there is very little we can do to influence that, so we just get on with what needs to be done,” she said. “Every person I have met wants an environment where water is safe to drink and swim in and where we have a thriving natural environment.” The Canterbury Land and Water Plan is pretty robust, Brooks said, adding that part of its strength is that it was a community-led response to improve water quality. “We operate in the Hinds

MHV Water chief executive Mel Brooks says the majority of farmers recognise the need for investment to improve water quality. PHOTO COLIN WILLISCROFT 300518-CW-008 plains and one of the key targets is that our farmers need to reduce their nitrate leaching by 36 per cent by 2035. This target, along with targeting nitrate levels in our waterways, is appropriate for us because nitrate has been identified as an issue in our area. “These will be a stretch and farmers know that more change is needed and they are up for the change. The actions that we take and the targets we have won’t be the right solution for all areas, farming isn’t a one-size-fits-all model, and across the regions urban and rural alike face different issues.” Every one of MHV Water’s farmers completes an annual

Farm Environmental Plan, a comprehensive document that covers what they are doing and, importantly, what they are planning to do to further improve their environmental stewardship, Brooks said. It focuses on actions. “This year we also employed a groundwater hydrologist. He is helping us to build a better understanding of the groundwater, especially understanding the trends and changes occurring across the catchment, the more we know the better. “The local runanga, Arowhenua, have been great to work with, and I have immense respect for their kaumatua. “They challenge us and that is

an important part of making sure we find a solution that works for everyone. Are we always going to agree? Probably not, but we do agree on the water quality outcomes we want to achieve, and that is a very good start.” The problems with water quality didn’t happen overnight, she said, and won’t be fixed immediately. “We need time to see the changes and improvement flow through and we recognise the clock is ticking and it is ticking faster and faster. “We are seeing a big effort going into understanding the science and technology that can assist. Cross-industry groups, universities and Crown Research Institutes are taking a collaborative approach and it is starting to provide some excellent outcomes. The focus is environmentally and economically sustainable farming practices.” “Broadening the pastures that we feed animals, breeding programmes, fertiliser applications, soil moisture monitoring applications, and integrated systems are some of the current work streams.” There has been change on the majority of farms, she said, including improvements in the efficient use of water, effluent management and application of nutrients to name a few. “Farmers recognise that they need to continue to invest to make things right. The thing that is most noticeable to me is not only the change in on-farm actions but also the change in mindset. “I am proud to be leading an irrigation scheme as we support our farmers in our quest for improved water quality. We are pushing the boundaries, challenging perceptions and making change. “Yes, we have some more work to do; yes, we are on the journey; and yes, we are going to make a difference.”

Local growers dominate awards Mid Canterbury grain growers cleaned up in this year’s United Wheatgrowers grain competition, with four of the five winners farming in the area. The top award – Wheat Grower of the Year – went to West Farms from Wakanui, with Andrew West also picking up the biscuit wheat award. Others from the region to pick up silverware were Tinwald’s David Millar, for feed wheat; Chertsey’s Chris Bell for feed wheat protein; and Dorie’s Dean Pye, for milling gristing wheat. Geraldine grower Guy Slater won the premium milling wheat award. The winners, announced at ceremony in Timaru on Wednesday night, were selected from 97 entrants running a variety of mixed cropping arable operations on dryland and irrigated land. Competition judge Syd Worsfold, who earlier this week was named Federated Farmers Arable Farmer of the Year, said it had been a tough job picking this year’s winners, with little separating the top entrants from one another across the key criteria of moisture, weight size, colour and appearance. He said there was a lot of deliberation among judges when it came to selecting the top three in most categories, although in the premium milling wheat class the outright winner was clear. Worsfold said irrigated crops were more likely to have had a better chance this year over nonirrigated, given the type of season growers had experienced right from the moment the crops were in the ground. “Initially we saw that very wet spring, where plants were not pushed for moisture stress, then from early October the dry weather really set in. We had about 60 days with no rain in the region and it was very hot, stressing the young plants, even those that were irrigated.” He said this had ultimately pushed most crop yields back throughout Canterbury. “In our case it took about 2

Craig Rodgers, seed manager at Ruralco, the competition’s major sponsor, said the competition is vital to showcase the skill and depth of the low-profile cropping sector. He also welcomed the 10 per cent increase in entries for this year’s competition over last year. “As a sector the arable industry is performing well above its weight, and the growers in this competition do much to high-

light the level of skill and passion they bring to the sector. The fact the winners this year are quite a different batch to last year’s highlights just how deep that pool of talent in the arable sector is. “The reward for us at Ruralco being involved is really about

playing a part in showcasing the sector and the farmers within it.” United Wheatgrowers director and competition organiser Michael Tayler welcomed the continuing support of a locally owned co-operative in showcasing a sector that often flew under


the radar in terms of recognition it received. “We have an exceptionally high standard of arable farmers in Canterbury and as a sector there is a deep level of talent there for growing crops, including wheat, that are held in high regard by processors and seed companies,” he said, adding that the competition is proving to be an excellent platform for New Zealand grain farmers to demonstrate the exceptionally high standards their relatively small sector can achieve. “We are identifying some really valuable niches within the sector that growers are proving very capable of working within.”

Police accused of racial profiling The co-leader of the Green Party says her brother is regularly racially profiled by the police and she is followed in shops. Marama Davidson said her 42-year-old brother still gets pulled over for “random checks”, and cited racial profiling as a reason to not arm the police. She herself had often been followed when in shops by staff, particularly chemists. Davidson said her brother had been pulled over by police his whole adult life, including recently. “He was with his Pakeha friend, she freaked out at him being pulled over, he told her this was nothing new. She had no idea, was blown away,” Davidson tweeted. “My bro is a 42-year-old professional and community leader, but brown and gruff looking. This started when he was a teen.” Davidson added a hashtag to the social media posts - #DrivingWhileBrown. “My bro is privileged enough to have the tools to respond politely to ongoing, systemic racism. The burden falls on him to be proven innocent. For others of our people, they can’t live up to this burden … if we had armed cops, who knows …” Davidson told the Herald there

was ongoing research into racial profiling, and police themselves recognised the issue of “unconscious bias”. “It is ongoing and it is deeply rooted. And it is quite challenging to address.” Davidson said a way to change that was through projects like working with trainees at the Po-

lice College to discuss human rights and discrimination issues. However, a much wider effort was needed across all Government departments and agencies. “There has been some positive signs. But it is probably going to take at least a generation of sustained work at all levels to stamp out and have a zero tolerance to-

Fears terrifying, deadly craze could sweep country New Zealand emergency services and health officials have warned Kiwis not to partake in a dangerous, idiotic and potentially deadly craze that’s sweeping Australia. Terrifying footage has emerged of two men inhaling LPG gas from barbecue bottles before holding their mouths up to flames and breathing out fire. The dangerous stunts show fire engulfing the men’s heads as they breathe into exposed flames. In the first video, a Queensland man is seen huffing from the LPG bottle before breathing into a firepit. The man, whose mouth catches fire, is seen running away in fear before showing off in front of the camera. In a second video, captioned How to be a dragon, a young man is seen sitting around a table, inhaling toxic fumes from the gas bottle before putting a lighter to his mouth and breathing out flames. A man can be heard saying “he’s throwing flame throwers down his mouth” before a group laugh at the risky stunt. There are now fears the stunt, which has been described “idiotic, highly dangerous and potentially deadly”, could sweep New Zealand after Kiwis have been sharing the videos and encouraging others to give it a go. “Get our hands on a bottle and we’ll crack into it Friday night? Keen?” one person wrote. Others have described the dangerous stunt as “pretty styley”, “lit”, and called those who oppose it “a bunch of sooks”. A spokesperson for New Zealand Fire and Emergency told the Herald the consequences of the stunt are “not worth it”, and explained those who attempt it risk severely damaging their eyes, lungs, car-

wards racial bias and profiling.” On her comment about not arming the police, Davidson said not everyone on the receiving end of racial profiling would behave calmly or politely, and that risked escalation. “If we were to add into that equation guns, as we have seen in the States … it is people of colour and people on lower incomes who will be harmed in that interaction. We are fortunate we are not in that situation yet.” Davidson made the comments after linking to a Radio NZ story about Vuyiswa Tulelo, the South African High Commissioner to New Zealand, who said she was followed by a security guard every time she went to Countdown. Davidson is not the only political party leader to speak out against racial profiling. When in Parliament Maori Party co-leader Marama Fox spoke of racial discrimination her son had suffered at school. Fox has also spoken about how her daughters are regularly followed when they enter shops. In February the Herald on Sunday revealed a young man caught with cocaine had escaped charges after an unprecedented exploration of racial bias by the country’s second-highest court.

The man’s legal team had argued police had no basis to approach the man’s tidy, registered and warranted vehicle, and had only done so because its occupants were Pacific New Zealanders. Although charges were later dismissed, the Court of Appeal didn’t rule on whether racial profiling occurred. However, its judgment was the first to explicitly recognise racial profiling may take place among police, and well beyond. “There is ample research which shows that unconscious bias exists, though [for those not negatively affected] it is rarely obvious and easily overlooked,” the court stated. “Few who discriminate on the basis of race will admit it. Some will prefer to hide it. Most will be unaware of it and so will find the suggestion they do so insulting.” In response to the case, police strongly rejected the racial profiling allegation, but said training to combat “unconscious bias” was being stepped up. Police Commissioner Mike Bush in 2015 said Maori overrepresentation in offender statistics could be partly explained by unconscious bias among officers. - NZME

bon monoxide poisoning, and could suffer serious or deadly burns to their body. The spokesperson said they have yet to receive a call over the dangerous stunt, and hopes they’ll never have to. Huffing LPG can cause dizziness, coughing, nausea, vomiting, skin irritation, fever and numbness. Prolonged exposure can lead to a coma, stroke and death, according to numerous health and government websites. When LPG is inhaled and exposed to flames, it can cause internal burns to airways and lungs, as well as other severe internal injuries and death. A Ministry of Health spokesperson told the Herald that reckless use of volatile substances could kill. “The misuse of volatile substances such as LPG is extremely dangerous and unwise. “Wrongful and reckless use of volatile substances, even those with a legitimate purpose such as LPG, can be life-threatening.” - NZME

Errol Stewart and Bill Doak are among those reliving their youth. Aged 79 and 77 respectively, they joined the pipe band many moons ago as teenagers. It was in the 1950s and the stirring melodies of old Scotland were revered by crowds everywhere.

As much as they loved what they did, they both had to leave in later years as they set up homes and careers with their wives and growing families. The pipe band itself was put on hold about 12 years ago, shortly after celebrating its 100-year anniversary. However, new life was breathed into the group two years

ago, as the call of Highland tunes beckoned once more and former members came marching back. Stewart and Doak have learned about 35 new melodies, getting to play these alongside their old favourites at community events, A&P shows, Anzac Day ceremonies, competitions and fundraising events.

“You don’t stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing,” Doak said. They are generally accompanied by the third oldest member, Gary Green, 71, in the back row of the band. Green has a similar past in that he played the bagpipes as a

teenager, when he was a member of the Methven Pipe Band, and is now being challenged again as a new member after a break from playing in public of about 50 years. Making fingers do what the head told them to do was not so easy for pipers when they were out of practice, Green said. “We could read music, but (the hard part is) to learn to read it quickly again and play at the same time as reading,” he explained. Pipe bands traditionally have three rows of four pipers each,

and at Green’s first time playing in public with the band after it reformed, he was put in the back row alongside Doak and Stewart. Ever since the trio has decided they want to stay in the back row and they call themselves the “back-row boys” accordingly. “We have sort of developed a friendship and just enjoy playing beside each other,” Green said. The two society members responsible for getting the band going again are pipe band chairman and former drum major Derrick Cullimore and pipe major

Peter Doak. Cullimore said it had been a lot of hard work, but well worth it. “It gave me a hell of a lot of pleasure to see it reformed,” he said. There had been things to do such as refreshing uniform supplies and scouting around for instruments held by former members, something members continue to be on the look-out for. Getting somewhere to meet and practise had not been a problem, with the band having continued to use its hall on Creek Road for

teaching. Cullimore goes back many years with the band and was among those who helped build the rooms in the first place, in the 1950s. “We had just got back from a concert in Southbridge and stood the walls up,” he said. The band meets at the hall on Monday nights and members range in age to as young as 15. Cullimore said he hoped more younger ones would come on board to ensure a strong future. The band has many family connections, some going back

to its very early years following formation in 1905. Stewart’s great grandfather Peter Stewart was a chief of the band, while his grandfather Thomas Stewart played in the first pipe band that marched down East Street. Today he is a member of the band alongside his son Paul Stewart, who also plays the bagpipes. And Peter Doak, who is a cousin of Bill’s, is among members of three generations playing in the band, with his son Chris Doak and granddaughter Samantha Doak also members.

Yesterday, just like it is every other year, marked the start of Mid Canterbury and, in particular, Methven’s busiest time of the year. The opening of Mt Hutt is always the first sign that the tourism dollar is about to become high and mighty in the district as thousands upon thousands of snow-hunters flock to the region in search of fresh powder and clean trails. It’s an exciting time to be out and about. All of sudden, after the subtle calmness that comes with the warmer months, things are alive again. The streets have people walking

down them, there’s a really strong buzz around the place and things are good. Ski season means business for so many people and not just in the recreational sense. Businesses will notice a spike in trade with more people coming through the doors and a higher exposure to products and services due to the increased population. Our cafes and restaurants will be fuller, the line at the super-

market will be that little bit longer and you might have to wait an extra few minutes to get across an intersection as traffic flows its way through the district. But the price is minimal to pay for the vibrancy that the ski season brings and we are lucky that we live in an area such as this that has something that is such a people magnet. People from all over the world travel their way into our region each year to work or play on Mt Hutt and always go home telling wonderful stories about their time on our land. For all the tourism investments we make, there’s nothing quite like the word of mouth from those who have already been and experienced and ensuring that

those people go home charged with excitement and the right information to pass on should be a paramount role for our tourism operators looking ahead to the future. The mountain isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – but it seems as though everyone understands just how important the role is that it plays in our district each year and long may that understanding continue. Shaking those lazy summer day blues would be a hard task without the hype and excitement that surrounds the white stuff up on top of the mountain, that’s for sure. Mt Hutt is a world-renowned ski resort. Rated the best in New Zealand, yesterday’s opening day for the crew of staff and manage-

ment was a huge success – right across the board. With the best base of opening day snow they’ve had for years, the canvas was perfect and the word will quickly spread, which should in turn result in more people making their way up to the slopes. There’s also the added bonus, if you enjoy the mountain that is, that there’s more bad weather on the way. At this time of the year that means smiles all around up the mountain with any inkling of snow-like weather on the ground resulting in a decent dumping up top. For the mountain’s sake, let’s hope next week’s proposed snowfall is a belter.

onsider: the latest Colmar Brunton poll tells us the National Party has 45.2 per cent support and Labour, 42. However, the National leader, Simon Bridges – the man with too many irrelevant syllables cluttering his mouth – has a mere 9 per cent following as “preferred Prime Minister”. On the other hand, Jacinda Ardern – the girl with the golden smile – has a 40 per cent rating from the public as the woman they want to be their PM. Ardern, you may recall, is about to make a temporary exit from the political stage as she is soon to have a baby. She will be replaced in office, for as long as her confinement and its immediate aftermath may take, by one, Winston Peters, a 72-year-old maverick politician of sustained invective, studied subtlety, remarkable longevity and still leader of his own party, NZ First. You will, I am sure, also remember that at last year’s election he and his followers gleaned a mere 7 per cent of the national vote, entitling them, remarkably, to nine list members in Parliament. Along the way, Peters himself lost his electorate seat of Northland, “sensationally” won the year before. Despite these obvious set-backs and the paucity of party colleagues, and under the flawed system of MMP by which we have the misfortune to be governed, when the electoral dust had settled, it was Winston who emerged holding the balance of power in the Beehive. I have it from yet another “reliable source” (to whom I have unfettered access) that the man himself was “delighted”. Much of the rest is recent history in which Winston backed Labour to form an administration – with the paper-thin assistance of the ailing Greens – and, for his pains, was rewarded with the plum positions of foreign minister and deputy prime minister. Have you also heard the whisper that news of Jacinda’s impending motherhood was “leaked” at a very early stage and

when Winston became aware of this unexpected development he realised, in a lightning flash, that a stand-in PM would thus be needed, which, in turn, made his agreement to go into coalition with Labour even more “a no-brainer”. His reward for that decision is, therefore, about to come to fruition. (Although it is obvious Jacinda is showing understandable reluctance to hand the job over to Winston and will not be leaving the field until she absolutely has to.) Now, we are about to arrive at the moment when Peters achieves – after years of trying, but invariably finding the last centimetres of the greasy pole too slippery to grasp – the very pinnacle of that pole. As Jacinda is under the watchful eye of the midwife, Winston (fanfare) becomes Prime Minister, albeit in a temporary capacity only. Ironically, Peters’ ascent to the dizzy heights of the ninth floor of the Beehive coincides exactly with the sombre figures from Colmar Brunton’s poll that NZ First now “enjoys” only 2.4 per cent electoral support, which equates to Peters not even being in Parliament. He will thus be known as the Precarious PM who really shouldn’t be experiencing such a lofty elevation. Despite his flimsy foundation, however, Peters is unlikely to be fazed and will no doubt govern with well-dressed dignity and

much aplomb. It will be interesting to see whether he has his own votecatching agenda to give the sort of appeal which will bring about a resurgence in support for his party. Unless Jacinda has a most unfortunate post-birth problem, I can’t see there being time for Peters to flash his smile and lure the lost punters back into the fold. What Peters will certainly have to face is mycoplasma bovis, by which our dairy industry is currently threatened. Whether such matters are within the soon-to-be acting PM’s area of expertise is, at present, unrecorded, but he may well have ideas of his own on how this mountainous challenge might be tackled. Real PM, Ardern, and her Government, have committed themselves to eradicating the disease over the next 10 years despite there being no other country on the planet that has ever successfully rid itself of the infection. Is that a brave step in the circumstances, or a foolhardy one that will cost us millions to no effect? In those immortal words – possibly made famous by Donald Trump – “we shall have to wait and see”. We must hope the decision to eradicate M. bovis turns out to be money better spent than that wasted on decontaminating methampetamine-affected

houses, which we are now told has been a colossal and entirely unnecessary expenditure and that no-one who experienced the fumes of the drug was ever in any sort of danger from the minute amounts of residue left behind. A remarkable outcome and a warning that “modern wisdom” is not infallible. Thus, an up-to-date assessment of the situation as Ardern’s confinement approaches, Peters polishes his shoes and combs his wavy locks and the Greens shiver as winter looms. A National leader with a healthy party lead, but his own following in the “negligible” quartile, a pregnant PM with 40 per cent voter approval, a Green Party teetering on the cusp of oblivion and a temporary Prime Minister who shouldn’t be there at all.

Summit ‘about attitude’ Heading into his North Korea summit with characteristic bravado, President Donald Trump said that “attitude” is more important than preparation as he looks to negotiate an accord with Kim Jong Un to denuclearise the Korean Peninsula. Preparing to depart Washington for next week’s meeting, Trump dangled before Kim visions of normalised relations with the United States, economic investment and even a White House visit. Characterising the upcoming talks with the third-generation autocrat as a “friendly negotiation,” Trump said, “I really believe that Kim Jong Un wants to do something.” Trump’s comments came as he looked to reassure allies that he won’t give away the store in pursuit of a legacydefining deal with Kim, who has long sought to cast off his pariah status on the international stage. The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes. “I don’t think I have to prepare very much,” Trump said. “It’s about attitude. It’s about willingness to get things done.” Declaring the summit to be “much more than a photoop,” he predicted “a terrific success or a modified success” when he meets with Kim on Tuesday in Singapore.

Legally Blonde 3 Reese Witherspoon has confirmed there will be a Legally Blonde 3. The actress, 42, slipped back into Elle Woods’ pink sequin bikini to announce the news on Instagram yesterday. The film is said to be “coming together quickly” with Reese in her original role, as well as the original creative team, 17 years after the original movie, the Daily Mail reports. Seen unwinding on a blue pool lounger, Reese instantly reverted to her alter-ego Elle, the sorority queen-turned-successful lawyer. Sharing a GIF of her sailing across an outdoor pool, actress Reese simply teased: “It’s true... #LegallyBlonde3” Ahead of a planned summit on Tuesday, June 12, in Singapore between President Donald Trump and North Korean autocrat Kim Jong Un, there has been talk of complete denuclearisation.

Mum jailed after letting men rape daughters A Georgia mother-of-three has been sentenced to 20 years behind bars for allowing men to rape her two daughters for money. Morgan Summerlin, 25, admitted last month she would take her children to the home of Richard “Pop” Office, 78, where she would wait in the living room while he raped her 5-year-old daughter and had her 6-year-old massage his feet. After the girls’ ordeal, he would give them each $100, which was then given to Summerlin, the MailOnline reported. The Fulton District Attorney said the girls were told to call Office “Pop” and the man gave drugs to Summerlin. After pleading guilty in May, Summerlin was sentenced to 20 years without parole, and a further 10 years on probation after her release. Her attorney told the Fulton Superior Court Summerlin herself was sexually abused as a child, and appeared to sug-

As Summerlin left the court room, she blew a kiss to the family members who were sitting in the room. gest her actions were a consequence of her own trauma. The Georgia woman’s children are now in the custody of a family member, who was in court earlier this week. Summerlin was charged with raping and trafficking a person for sexual servitude, cruelty to children and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

Office was earlier found guilty of rape, child molestation, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposes and sexual battery. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus 146 years. Another man the girls were taken to visit, Alfredo Trejo,

was convicted in February of rape, child molestation, sexual battery, enticing a child for indecent purposes, trafficking a person for sexual servitude and aggravated child molestation. “It is difficult to imagine facts more horrific than those found in this case,” Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney Irina Khasin told news station WSVN. “I am hoping these two little girls can somehow survive this abuse and grow into healthy adults who can lead a productive and fulfilling life.” The girls’ grandmother, Teresa Davidson, has also pleaded guilty to cruelty to children after she failed to act when they told her they were being abused. She was sentenced to five years, but one year was struck off as time served and the rest will be served through probation. As she was led to a jail cell after her sentencing, Summerlin blew kisses to her family who sat in the courtroom. - NZME

Kiwi actor in Mulan remake New Zealand actor Yoson An has won a key love-interest role in Disney’s liveaction remake of the 1998 animated film, Mulan. Slated to begin shooting in New Zealand and China in August, the film is also directed by a Kiwi, Niki Caro. The movie follows the story of Hua Mulan (played by Liu Yifei), a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can take the place of her ageing father when he’s conscripted into the military. An’s character, Chen Honghui, is a cocky, handsome army recruit who initially sees Mulan as a rival. On discovering she is a woman however, his feelings towards her change.

Actor found dead Sons of Anarchy star Alan O’Neill has died at the age of 47. The Irish-born actor was discovered by his girlfriend in the hallway of her apartment in Los Angeles early on Wednesday evening, local time. According to TMZ, O’Neill — who starred as Hugh in the hit series in season six and seven from 2013 to 2014 — had been suffering from chronic heart problems and was a heavy smoker. He also reportedly had a history of “alcohol and drug abuse”. While no official cause of death has been released, TMZ reports that “no foul play is suspected” and that his body will undergo an autopsy.

In brief

Woman lost in bush six nights A South Korean backpacker was rescued after falling from a mountain and spending six nights stranded in steep Australian wilderness. She was suffering from dehydration and exposure but was relatively unscathed, officials said. Joohee Han, 25, was last seen at a supermarket in the town of Tully in tropical Queensland state on Thursday last week before telling a friend by phone the following day she was going for a walk at nearby Mount Tyson in a national park that morning, Police Inspector Steve Kersley said. She had hiked to the mountain’s top and taken photographs of the view before slipping and falling unconscious for hours, Queensland Ambulance Services flight paramedic Hannah Gaulke said. “She managed to crawl and scrape her way through the bushland, which was really tough terrain,” Gaulke said.

South Korean backpacker Joohee Han, 25, (centre), is assisted to a hospital after being rescued by helicopter, on Thursday, in Tully, Queensland, Australia. Han became stuck after reaching a rocky waterfall, where she waited for six days before being

reached by rescuers. “She couldn’t actually proceed further and had no way to get

back out,” Gaulke said. She had been missing for five days before friends reported her missing on Wednesday and a search was launched, Kersley said. Her shouts for help were heard on Saturday by a member of the public, who only informed police on Thursday after learning of the search. She was found on Thursday by soldiers and police who cut through dense forest to reach her, Kersley said. “Six days is a long time to be lost in the bush, particularly when you’ve got no bush skills,” Kersley told reporters. “She’s done well to survive.” She was winched from the forest by a rescue helicopter, which took her to Tully, where she was assessed at a hospital. She was wearing long trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and had a raincoat that helped her keep warm, Kersley said. - AP

Nasa finds ‘building blocks for life’ in Mars lakebed Nasa’s Curiosity rover has uncovered signatures of an environment on the red plant that may once have been habitable. In two studies on data collected by the Mars rover over the past few years, scientists have identified an abundant source of organic matter in the ancient soil, and traced some of the planet’s atmospheric methane to its roots. The findings could help to guide the search for ancient microbial life and improve our understanding of seasonal processes on Mars. Nasa revealed details on the latest findings in a press conference yesterday. The announcement may not be the detection of life itself, but the findings address factors that are “fundamental to our search for life”, explained Paul Mahaffy, director of the Solar System Exploration Division at Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Centre,

The Mars Curiosity rover was initially intended to be a twoyear mission to help answer if the planet could support life, has liquid water, and to study the climate and geology. during the conference. The organic molecules identified in the Curiosity samples were found in rocks from an ancient lakebed, explained lead author and astrobiologist Dr Jennifer L. Eigenbrode.

of molecules that resembled organic-rich sedimentary rock found on Earth, according to the team, including thiophene, 2- and 3-methylthiophenes, methanethiol and dimethylsulfide. “Those organic molecules could have come from life,” Eigenbrode said, “but we don’t know that there was ever life on Mars. So those specific molecules are not evidence of life.” Instead, the researcher explained, these molecules could be traced to non-life sources, such as meteorites. “What were looking at here are a lot of layers that were put down in an ancient lake,” Eigenbrode said during the press conference, addressing the as-yetunknown origins of the newly detected organic matter. “That lake had been there for a long time – hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of years. - NZME

Queen’s sister dies The younger sister of Queen Maxima of the Netherlands has died at her home in the Argentine capital, reports say. Inés Zorreguieta was 33 and is understood to have taken her own life. She was bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding to then Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander in 2002 and is godmother to their youngest daughter, 11-year-old Princess Ariane. Queen Maxima, a native Argentinian, was “very shocked and very sad” at her sister’s death, the royal house said. She has cancelled her forthcoming engagements. - BBC

Search efforts halted Rescuers suspended search and recovery efforts yesterday at villages devastated by the eruption of Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire, leaving people with missing loved ones distraught and prompting some to do the risky work themselves with rudimentary tools. Climatic conditions and still-hot volcanic material were making it dangerous for rescuers, and also 72 hours had passed since Sunday’s eruption. That’s the window beyond which officials earlier said it would be extremely unlikely to find any survivors amid the ash, mud and other debris that buried homes up to their rooftops. - AP

Pippa’s pregnant Pippa Middleton is following in her sister’s footsteps — she’s about to be a mother. The younger sister of Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, revealed the “happy news” of her pregnancy and says she has passed her first trimester. This will be the 34-year-old’s first child. She married hedge fund manager James Matthews in 2017. Her sister Kate had her third child Prince Louis earlier this spring. - AP

Kilauea changes coast Lava from the Kilauea volcano that flowed into Kapoho Bay has created nearly two kilometres of new land and officials with the US Geological Survey said the flow is still active and there’s no way to know when the eruption will end or if more lava-spewing vents will open.

Cook, stirring frequently for 20 minutes until everything is very soft and all the liquid has evaporated. Stir through the mustard and season with a little salt and pepper to taste. ■ Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a frying pan over a very high heat. Trim the lamb rumps of any fat, pat dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Add to the pan (2 at a time) to brown slightly on all sides – only about 30 seconds in the pan in total. Set aside on a wooden board and repeat with the other rumps. ■ Roll out the pastry on a floured benchtop – it needs to be about 3/4 the thickness of a standard sheet, about 2-3 mm. If the pastry is too thick, it won’t cook properly by the time the lamb rump is ready.

The age of disruption

An Auckland property investor and developer has told victims of properties where meth has been smoked to clean their houses with sugar soap or other common cleaners. David Whitburn, an ex-lawyer who was also Auckland Property Investors Association president, said the alarm over meth cleanup in lightly contaminated places was unnecessary. “If meth has just been smoked there, the levels will be lower and that means you can use products like sugar soap, bleach and other household cleaning agents bought at supermarkets for just a few dollars,” he said. - NZME

Perhaps more importantly the template for disrupting an industry is now more widely understood by investors pushing billions of dollars of capital towards tech start-ups. Traditionally you valued a company on its discounted cashflow on the assumption it would make profits and profits would grow,

Taylor said. Now many of the biggest and most successful stocks are companies – like New Zealand’s Xero – that don’t make profits and aren’t even aiming to yet. “They are a challenge because if the growth stops there is no profitability or dividends to fall back on.

role with the stadium and had not seen the report which has resulted in the stadium being closed. “We have not seen a copy of the report and are not involved in any investigations,” the spokesperson said. On Wednesday, the Taranaki Stadium Trust said the area’s rugby team was now without a home after its buildings were condemned because of safety issues. “A safety-first approach is behind the decision to make Yarrow Stadium in New Plymouth unavailable as the Mitre 10 Cup home base for the Yarrows Taranaki Bulls in 2018,” the statement said. “Reports into the West Stand were commissioned after a November report found the stadium’s East Stand was earthquakeprone,” it said. The facility had been lauded as the world’s third-best rugby stadium, better than Twickenham, Eden Park or Wellington’s Cake Tin. - NZME

Fletchers keeping their distance Fletcher Construction says it wasn’t involved in the design or assessment of geotechnical issues at New Plymouth’s Yarrow Stadium, which has since been shut on account of being dangerous. Fletcher built the stands in 2002 in an upgrade of around $16 million but only 16 years later, those have been deemed unsafe after investigations into seismic and geotechnical issues. However, a Fletcher spokesperson said yesterday the scope of the construction contract was limited and the business was not involved in any geotechnical investigations at the grounds at the time it carried out the work. Mike Nield, a Taranaki Stadium Trust trustee, said: “The entire stadium is now shut: both stands and the terraces. But the facilities have not been condemned and no decision has been made about the future of the facility.” Because people were no longer allowed into the Yarrow Stadium, Nield said it would be acceptable to say it was dangerous but he took strong issue with reports that the facility was condemned. No decision had been taken about what to do next, he stressed, and no buildings were condemned. The Fletcher spokesperson said the company did not design the stands. “We can confirm that for the East Stand project and the West Stand extension project we had build-only contracts. “We were not contracted to undertake design or geotech work on either project,” the spokesperson said.

This week Twitter entered the S&P 500 index on Wall Street – replacing 20th century, old economy giant Monsanto. Another tech stock Netflix will replace Monsanto – which has been taken over by Germany’s Bayer – on the S&P 100. It was just the latest example of a growing trend that is changing the make-up of markets around the world and increasingly the way investors need to look at stocks, says PIE Funds chief executive Mike Taylor. “In 1965, tenure of S&P 500 companies was 33 years,” he says. “In 1990 it was 20 years. “It’s forecast to drop to around 14 years in the near future and 50 per cent of the companies in the S&P 500 will be replaced in the next 10 years.” The new entrants will almost inevitably be dominated by high tech “software as a service” (Saas) companies – or what are sometimes known as cloud computing providers.

Up for the challenge BY ERIN TASKER

over a 220m elevation gain as well, so you’re pretty much straight up for the last 1km.” But once she got to the top and could see the finish and hear the crowd, the pain disappeared. She said there were no real points during the race where she questioned what she was doing. “I think there was maybe the final checkpoint at around 42km and you’re in around the bottom of the cliffs and the only way out is up,” Mulligan said. “I just said to myself ‘I’m getting out of these mountains’. “It was a wee lightbulb moment.” She’d set off with no real expectation of how she’d fare. There were 5000 people competing and starting in waves in both the 50km and 100km ultramarathon races and Mulligan had spoken to Ashburton GP Mick Tarry, who had previously done the 100km race, for tips and advice. She was pleased with her time of seven hours and five minutes, but felt she could do better, and that played a part in her plan to go back again next year. Ultra-marathon running wasn’t for everyone, but Mulligan loved it. She said training for events required determination and resilience and that spilled over in to other areas of life. “You’ve created I guess this thing where if you can deal with running 50km or even your first half marathon, you’ve got these strategies in place that you can use in your personal life, too,” Mulligan said. Her training doesn’t stop with the Blue Mountains Ultra done and dusted. There’s her fourth Kepler Challenge to prepare for in December and the Motatapu Ultra in March next year, and in the meantime if she could bring her personal best half marathon time down, that’d be a bonus.


Ashlea Mulligan had only just finished a gruelling 50km race through Australia’s picturesque Blue Mountains, when plans of a return trip next year started forming in her head. It had taken Mulligan, a 27-yearold Ashburton oral health therapist, seven hours and five minutes to get from the start to the finish of the 50km Ultra-Trail Australia race through the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, two hours inland from Sydney. It was tough, physically and mentally, but Mulligan had made the trip over for the challenge and the beauty of the location, and was determined to make the most of it, thinking it would be something she’d only do once. But straight away, she reconsidered. “After the race I thought ‘I’ve done it, that’s fine, it’s all done and it’s over’, and then I was like, actually, maybe I might just go back … potentially it’s on the cards,” Mulligan said. She’d always been a keen runner, but it wasn’t until after university that she began transitioning to trail running. She started with half marathon type races and slowly built up to longer distances. Three years ago she completed her first Kepler Challenge, described as the jewel in New Zealand’s mountain running calendar. She has now competed in the 60km Kepler Challenge for the past three years in a row and had an aim of doing five in a row. “Ever since that, I’ve enjoyed it, and I’d look around for races that I might like to do and I remembered seeing this one in the Blue Mountains on TV, honestly five or six years ago, and thought I’d love to do that,” Mulligan said. “It just looked so beautiful, the mountains just looked gorgeous and I couldn’t think of anywhere else that I really wanted to go so desperately.” When she got there last month, she wasn’t disappointed. The race started off at 1000m elevation, so it wasn’t warm, but Mulligan was prepared for that. “When we were racing you dropped down right into the cliff, into the bottom, so it was cold but

it was a beautiful day,” Mulligan said. Competitors made 2300m of el-

evation all up over the race. “The final 1km of the race is apparently dreaded by everyone,

and I’d have to agree it wasn’t the best. “You have to climb up 951 stairs

In brief Hesson ‘best we’ve had’ Former Black Caps skipper Brendon McCullum, when asked about Mike Hesson, put it simply: “I regard him as the best coach the Black Caps have ever had”. McCullum was controversially appointed by Hesson, replacing Ross Taylor early in the coach’s tenure in 2012 – a move which ended up paying dividends. McCullum believes Hesson will be a man in demand. “You’d imagine he’ll have a few offers to sift through.” - NZME

Breakers star in NBA Shea Ili’s star keeps rising in the basketball world. The 25-year-old New Zealand Breakers point guard has been invited to a NBA mini camp with the Dallas Mavericks, following a season where he continued his substantial improvements. The 2017/2018 campaign saw Ili named the Australian NBL’s Most Improved Player, and made the Asia Cup’s All-Star Five with the Tall Blacks. He is currently on track to be the New Zealand NBL MVP, and the rash of accolades has now led to his first crack at the NBA. - NZME

Mt Somers A’s Kylie Copland takes a pass during her side’s narrow loss to Methven A.



Methven hangs tough By Erin TaskEr

Methven A had to withstand a final quarter comeback from Mt Somers A to pick up a valuable win in Thursday night’s latest round of Mid Canterbury Netball’s ACL premier one competition. New club Mt Somers A took to the court at the EA Networks Centre with a slightly different line up to what they had in their first two appearances in premier one after earning promotion to the top flight thanks to winning the first round of premier two. With key defender Kate Cairns away Mt Somers were lacking some of their usual height in defence, moving mid-courter Sarah Paton to goal defence in her absence. Methven got out to an early 3-0 lead and held on to that slender advantage, leading 11-7 at quarter time and then 20-17 at halftime. A late flurry of goals in the third quarter saw Methven move out to 29-22 at three-quarter time, but Mt Somers weren’t down and out. After moving Paton back to her preferred mid-court role and putting Shannon Johnson in at goal defence to add some height and put pressure on Methven’s shooters, Mt Somers steadily clawed their way back into the game and got within two goals, 32-30, with four minutes on the clock.

But Methven weren’t giving up that easy and picked themselves up and moved back out to 36-31, and they would’ve been glad they did. Mt Somers had one last charge left in them and got back to 36-34 before time ran out. Although disappointed to lose their second on the trot, Mt Somers player/coach Kate Oliver said her side was pleased to pick up a bonus point which could come

with the pressure the way we should’ve and made some silly errors in that last quarter,” Clemens said. Meanwhile on the next court, College A continued to go from strength to strength, picking up a 38-24 win over United A. United A coach Claire Smitheram said the College shooters were on top of their game. “We had a strong first quarter and start of the third quarter

We were pretty pleased with how we played. It was a 100 per cent match, everyone was giving it their all

in handy given how tight things were in the middle of the table. “We were pretty pleased with how we played. “It was a 100 per cent match, everyone was giving it their all,” Oliver said. Methven player/coach Leanne Clemens said consistency was the key for her side going forward. They tended to have lulls in their games and they couldn’t afford to do that against teams like Mt Somers as that was when their skilled heads kicked in. “We probably didn’t cope

but made far too many errors throughout the rest of the game,” Smitheram said. “We struggled with ability on attack, choice of passes and discipline on defence.” College A coach Kaye Kennedy had to make last-minute changes to her line up due to an injury during the warm up, and now had three girls struggling with ankle injuries. But she said her side’s defensive end worked well against the experienced United A, creating opportunities for Mia Pearson to nab intercepts from goal keep.

“Our fitness, speed and agility I feel gave us the edge, particularly our mid-courters, along with some fantastic shooting by both Hayley Tallentire and Sophie Beveridge,” Kennedy said. Celtic A also had to deal with a last-minute injury ahead of their game against Hampstead A, with mid-courter Julia McLeod injured in the warm-up just a couple of minutes before the game was due to start. But Celtic weren’t ruffled and got out to an 11-6 first quarter lead and continued building to go away with a 34-18 win. Hampstead coach Janene McDowell said her side was playing catch-up from the start. “Celtic played a fast attacking game and we had plenty of opportunities with missed shots and turnovers throughout the court not being converted into the score-line,” McDowell said. Celtic were held to less than 30 goals for the first time in the competition last week against College A, and coach Angela Leadley said they’d lifted their game. They converted turnovers with sharp feeding into the circle helping their shooting stats. The win meant Celtic were still yet to be beaten this season, with just two games remaining in round two. Netball takes a break next week due to the national indoor bowls championships being held at the EA Networks Centre.

After a week staving off wintry Christchurch weather, Manly have been warmed by the arrival of the fit and firing Trbojevic brothers. Coach Trent Barrett confirmed victorious NSW State of Origin siblings Jake and Tom Trbojevic have been cleared to play in today’s NRL clash with the Warriors. The pair are raring to go according to former Blues playmaker Barrett. - AAP

Rumours rubbished The Sydney Roosters have reiterated their support for their oftcriticised forward pack, rubbishing rumours of interest in Martin Taupau and Aaron Woods. Woods is only six months into a fouryear NRL deal with Canterbury. However, he is rumoured to be free to leave should he find a better offer due to the Bulldogs’ salary cap mess. - AAP

Origin stars to back up The Sydney Roosters expect to have their full complement of State of Origin stars for today’s NRL clash with Newcastle. Coach Trent Robinson said Latrell Mitchell, James Tedesco, Boyd Cordner and Dylan Napa would be required to get through the captain’s run but was confident they would back up. “I expect them all to play in some capacity,” Robinson said. - AAP

Bellamy undecided Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith is adamant coach Craig Bellamy has not made up his mind on his NRL future ahead of tomorrow’s showdown with Brisbane. All eyes will be on Bellamy and opposite Wayne Bennett ahead of the blockbuster clash with the careers of the two super coaches up in the air. The Broncos have reportedly tabled a four-year offer worth $5 million for Bellamy to join the Broncos from 2019, despite seven-time premiership-winner Wayne Bennett having a year to run on his deal. The Storm have launched a three-year counterbid in an attempt to keep him in the Victorian capital. - AAP

In brief

Whitelock ‘good to go’ All Blacks skipper Sam Whitelock hasn’t played for four weeks due to concussion but he’s declared himself ready to lead his side on to Eden Park against the French tonight. “I’ve had a couple of weeks where I haven’t played,” said Whitelock, who is standing in for regular captain Kieran Read. “It’s frustrating – I always want to be out there if I’m 100 per cent fit or even if I’m not.” After leading his side on their final training run of the week on a sunbathed Eden Park pitch, Whitelock added: “I’m really excited about getting out there [against France]. “The confidence is where it needs to be. “I’ve been lucky enough to have been in this environment a couple of times so I just need to back myself and my ability. “At times I’m going to be blowing hard but I think that’s normal no matter where you are in a test match.” Brodie Retallick’s absence due to a chest injury could be keenly felt but helping Whitelock cope

with the added intensity of test rugby in the second row is Crusaders teammate Scott “Scooter” Barrett, a 24-year-old who has matured into a quality forward with an extremely high workrate. “Scooter has been going really well – he’s really stepped up over the last couple of years. “People are really starting to take notice now. “The best thing having someone out there I’ve played a lot with. “That gives me that confidence to do my own thing because he’s playing so well.” The 29-year-old Whitelock, who has played 96 tests, said he didn’t expect the All Black machine to be too rusty. “Once we’ve got in it’s been great and obviously those camps have allowed this week to be a bit smoother than it’s been in the past.” Of the French, he said: “You’ve got to be prepared for anything – no matter if it’s at the scrum, lineout maul, or the expansive play they’ve been playing lately.” - NZME

Baby Blacks into semis New Zealand will play in yet another U20 Championship semifinal after beating Australia 27-18 to top their group yesterday.

Boks’ stars named Willie le Roux and Faf de Klerk have been named in South Africa’s starting XV for the first test against England in Johannesburg. Wasps fullback le Roux and Sale halfback de Klerk have been star performers this season in the English Premiership and, alongside Duane Vermeulen – who has just left Toulon – are the only Europeanbased players selected. - PA

Sexton ‘seething’

All Blacks skipper Sam Whitelock is wary of the French visitors.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika believes Irish superstar Johnny Sexton will be seething about a shock demotion for tonight’s series opener. Sexton has been benched in favour of Joey Carbery, one of six changes from the team that completed a Six Nations grand slam. Joe Schmidt has also chosen to rotate out Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Tadhg Furlong and Devin Toner. - PA

Ashburton bowlers Grant Wilson, Michael Lawson and Matt Markham


Bowlers gird for action Ashburton will go on the national stage for all in sundry to see today with the start of the New Zealand Indoor Bowls National Championships at the EA Networks Centre. Up to 1000 people will flock to the district for the annual championships and this year’s event is the first time Ashburton has played the role of host region – a massive undertaking for a sport dwindling in numbers locally. But through the hard work of the local association, the event looks set already to be a major success, with good entries and an outstanding venue in which the competition is to be played. And for Ashburton Indoor Bowls Association president, Michael Lawson, it will be the culmination of years of planning. “This process started a long time ago when we first registered an expression of interest to host the event,” he said. “And as time has gone on the dream has slowly but surely

turned into reality and the work that has gone in, particularly over the past few months, has been huge and we’ve been lucky to have such great offers of help and support from all around the district.” Split into two competitions, an open event and a Masters event, the tournament runs the entirety of the next week, with bowls on offer every day, including two special events as well. On Wednesday selected teams representing both the North Island and South Island will lock horns in the Academy and Masters event and then on Thursday night four selected players from each region will compete in a District Challenge at the Ashburton MSA. For Lawson, the week comes as a multi-faceted one for himself. Not only is he the man at the helm of the host region, he’s also vice-president of the sport’s governing body, New Zealand Indoor Bowls, and on top of that

TODAY: Singles Qualifying – Two rounds of the Open event and one round of Masters. TOMORROW: Singles Post Section Open and Masters MONDAY: Pairs Qualifying Open and Masters TUESDAY: Pairs Post Section Open and Masters WEDNESDAY: Triples Qualifying Open and Masters & North v South Island Academy and Masters Event THURSDAY: Triples Post Section Open and Masters – New Zealand District Challenge at Ashburton MSA FRIDAY: Fours Qualifying Open and Masters SATURDAY: Fours Post Section Open and Masters he’ll be out on the mats trying, like everyone else, to win a title. “There’s a bit to do and a bit to organise, but once you’re on the mat, it’s all about playing bowls,” Lawson said. Lawson isn’t just there to make up the numbers either. He’s fresh off claiming his first North Island Championship title last weekend in Rotorua and forms some strong combinations throughout the week with some of

the best players in the country. He’ll play triples with current New Zealand representatives, Daniel French and Simon Thomas as well as playing pairs with French too. In the fours he combines with French and his partner, Keri Te Tamaki and Ashburton’s Matt Markham. Lawson, French and Markham finished runner-up in the fours event last year in Taupo.

More than 100 entries have been received from the Ashburton District alone, by far it’s biggest representation at the National Championships with a huge portion of those coming in the Masters section. “The Masters’ section has really grown in stature and with good numbers again this year it will be another keenly contested competition throughout the week. “The open sections are tough too. “There’s some seriously talented groupings in some of the sections, which will make for pretty interesting viewing all week,” Lawson said. Methven’s Martin Nordqvist, who finished runner-up in the Masters singles at Mt Manganui two years ago, will be a leading local hope in the same event over the next two days. Play begins this morning with the qualifying stages of the singles before post-section play tomorrow.

Ashburton Guardian 21

In brief


Handicap puts shackles on Paul Nelson can’t fault The Shackler ahead of Trentham, but he is concerned with the jumper’s weight. The Hastings trainer produced the 11-year-old to win the Waikato Hurdles (3200m) and has paid a price for his front-running victory at Te Rapa. “He’s gone up two and a-half kilos for that, he’s climbed up the handicap so quickly,” Nelson said. The 69kg impost aside, he is more than satisfied with the gelding’s condition for today’s K. S. Browne Hurdle (3200m). “He’s well and handles really heavy tracks,” Nelson said. “He’ll probably go back for the Wellington Hurdles and then we’ll play it by ear.” The Shackler will be opposed by stablemate Kings Deep, who will be making his first appearance since finishing fourth over the bigger fences at Te Aroha last October. “He’s had a jump-out and a point-to-point, but some of the others may be a bit sharper,” Nelson said. “He’s probably more of a steeplechaser now.”


Ready for Te Rapa Last-start winner Cyber Attack is ready to step out over more ground at Te Rapa today in the Listed Ssanyong Auckland Futurity Stakes. “He’s been working well and the 1400m will really suit him – he’s a genuine chance,” trainer Tony Pike said. By Shamexpress out of a half-sister to the multiple Group One winner Humidor, Cyber Attack was a good fresh-up winner over 1150m at Te Awamutu last month. - NZME

Rain a big issue Doubt has been cast on New Zealand mare Shillelagh taking her place in today’s Gr.1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben. “She probably won’t run if the track is wet, which it looks like it will be, and go to the Tatts Tiara instead,” said Paul Shailer, who runs trainer Chris Waller’s Queensland operation. - NZME

Riccarton on the radar

The Shackler is set and ready for the K. S. Browne Hurdle at Trentham today. Zardetto will represent the team over the bigger fences in the Irvines McGregor Grant Steeplechase following his last-start second at Hawke’s Bay.

“I was very happy with his firstup effort, some of the other horses had a couple more runs than him,” Nelson said. The regally-bred Zardetto, is

a son of Redoute’s Choice and Champagne, had an outing on the flat before he finished runner-up on his home track behind That’s How It Goes. - NZME

A trip to Riccarton could be on the cards for the talented Wooden Edge, who resumes in the Lee Somervell Racing Stables 1200 at Te Rapa today. A winner of six of his 18 starts, Wooden Edge ran an eye-catching third at the Cambridge trials last month behind race rival No Need, trained by race sponsor Somervell. - NZME

Finals berth beckons for Rakaia BY ERIN TASKER


They’ve already beaten them once this season, now all Rakaia have to do is topple Springston again today and they’ll seal themselves a spot in rugby’s Combined Country Cup. But it won’t be easy. Finals footy is different from any other footy. Teams could rise to a whole other level when it comes to finals time, and Rakaia coach Wayne Foxcroft hoped that was what his side would do in their semi-final against competition newcomers Springston at the Rakaia Domain today. Foxcroft had pretty much a fully fit squad to pick and choose from for today’s game, which was an ideal position to be in as a coach ahead of a semi-final. Injuries had meant Rakaia had struggled to field their best side during the round robin, but had still proven to be one of the best, and most of those injuries had come right at the perfect time. The influential Seta Koroitamana was one who hadn’t played for seven weeks, but he came off the bench at half-time during Rakaia’s

Tom Hanham-Carter has been influential for Rakaia this season and will be hoping to make an impact in his side’s semi-final against Springston at the Rakaia Domain today. PHOTO TETSURO MITOMO 020618-TM-0119

quarter-final win over Saracens last weekend and made a huge impact, scoring two tries. But a lack of game time this

season meant that Koroitamana would likely warm the bench for a start today, too. Foxcroft said he just didn’t have

the full 80 minutes in him again yet. Rakaia made the final of last year’s Combined Country Cup, the premier Canterbury Country club rugby competition, but fell at that final hurdle, beaten by Southbridge. To get back in that final to have a chance at redemption, Rakaia would have to get past a Springston side sure to put up a fight today. They made the semi-finals in their first season back in the top flight and while that was a great achievement, they wouldn’t be wanting to stop there. “They are pretty solid across the board. They will be tough,” Foxcroft said. “They have done really well back in the competition to finish where they are.” Springston finished third in their section heading into the finals, but their section was topped by Rakaia. When they met in the round robin Rakaia got out to a big lead and looked like thumping them, but Springston recovered and put a few late points on the board. Rakaia knew what they were

capable of. “But it’s about us, we need to forget about them,” Foxcroft said. The winner of today’s semi-final between Rakaia and Springston, which kicks off at the Rakaia Domain at 2.45pm, would play the winner of the other semi-final between Prebbleton and Waihora, being played at Tai Tapu. Next week’s final would then be played at either Tai Tapu or Prebbleton. Mid Canterbury hosted last year, so couldn’t host again this year. Competition continued for those teams who fell short of the finals today too. In the Canterbury Rugby Supporters Club Trophy section Celtic would host Glenmark/Cheviot, while Southern would host Kaiapoi. In the NCRU plate section Methven would host Burnham/Dunsandel/Irwell and Oxford would host Ohoka, while in the plaque section Rolleston were to take on West Melton and Hampstead – yet to win a game this season – were to host Hurunui. Last week’s beaten quarterfinalists were also set to take to the park again today, with Southbridge hosting Saracens and Lincoln hosting Darfield.

Fairytale end to season looms Springston are enjoying a fairytale season and are hoping there is a final chapter. In the club’s first season in the Combined Country Cup rugby competition they find themselves one game away from the final, an achievement only a handful of the 22 clubs have achieved since the North Canterbury sides joined in 2007.

Springston manager Kevin Jones said no one at the club would have imagined gearing up for a semi-final 11 weeks ago. “I think when we set our goals for the season that we hoped to maybe win four games and we would have been quite happy,” Jones said. “The guys have just gone out to play for each other and enjoy the game.”

Wakanui on a high After a week off due to the long weekend and tournaments, the Mid/South Canterbury senior hockey competitions will hit the turf again today. In the senior men’s competition Wakanui will be at home to Temuka and will look to hit the ground running after a successful weekend away from regular competition for a large chunk of the side. They headed to Cromwell as part of the Mid Canterbury senior men’s team and won the Ian Smith Trophy for the first time in six years, beating North Otago, Invercargill, Eastern Southland and South Canterbury. Their only loss was at the hands of Central Otago. In the senior women’s competition both Hampstead and Hamp-

stead/Collegians are also at home, making for a busy afternoon on the Ashburton hockey turf at the Ashburton Domain. First round winners Hampstead will take on Cambridge, the team they beat to claim the first round crown, while Hampstead/Collegians will take on Geraldine. Hampstead and Cambridge will kick the afternoon off at 1pm, followed by Hampstead/Collegians and Geraldine at 3pm, and the senior men’s Wakanui versus Temuka game will finish the day off at 5pm. Meanwhile in the women’s division two competition, OpukeHakatere – a combination of players from Ashburton College and Mount Hutt College – will travel to Timaru on Sunday to take on Craighead’s 3rd XI.

The French Open women’s final is an intriguing match-up of two players who have either tasted victory on the biggest of stages or come tantalisingly close. On one side of the court is American Sloane Stephens, who won her first grand slam at last year’s US Open and has an unbeaten streak of six wins in tournament finals. Standing opposite is Simona

Capitals take the title The Washington Capitals have won the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup for the first time in their 44-year history with a 4-3 win over the Las Vegas Golden Knights. With the win, the Capitals clinched the NHL’s best-of-seven championship series 4-1 and brought an end to what had been a magical inaugural season for the Knights. Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, playing in his first Stanley Cup final, was awarded the Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the play-offs. - PA

good opportunities in finals, and I have taken advantage of them. “I have played well, played solid. And, I mean, there is no formula. I didn’t, like, try to do it. I’m not trying to break a record. It’s just how it’s happened for me.” Halep felt disappointment at her last final earlier this year in Melbourne where she lost the Australian Open to adversary Caroline Wozniacki in a thrilling shootout. “I will focus on myself, like I did

every match here,” the 26-yearold says. “And I will try just to be calm during the match and try everything I can. Because it’s a nice opportunity, so I have just to feel happy after the match that I gave everything. “It’s (a) different match, different year. I lost three times until now and no one died, so it will be okay. But I will be, I think, more confident, because I have a lot of experience. In tennis, you never know, so I will stay chill.” - DPA

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): A lot that needs doing can only be done by you. To avoid becoming overwhelmed, dump everything onto a sheet of paper. You’ll immediately feel better. Then comes the sorting. You’re on your way! TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): You’ll have a feeling about someone then the feeling will be confirmed. You’ll have a different feeling about the situation and that will also be confirmed. Is this a self-fulfilling prophecy or psychic validation? GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): You’ve been outgoing, and you’ve been introverted; both modes have worked for you. So don’t be afraid to go with your mood today, even if you don’t think it’s quite what the room wants. Do you. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): What about getting a coach? Even if you have to pay someone, if it’s the difference between reaching your goals and not reaching them, it will be worth it. Accountability: That’s the thing missing now. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): Some friendships are like museums, you stroll along making discoveries, and others are like sporting events, you play hard and compete. Either is good. Just don’t mistake one for the other. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Since your instinct is to go forward with gusto, you’re likely to get attention with your approach. Fear will dissipate. It will simply burn off as though it’s fuelling your motion. You’ll have an impact. LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): The tasks may be arduous, and you don’t mind a bit, as long as they’re also necessary. So ask yourself: “Will I be closer to my goals if I continue to work on this?” Then let the answer be your guide. SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): In some matters you’re inclined to be uncompromising, and this is your right and privilege. But when it comes to your loved ones, you have the flexibility and sensitivity it takes to create harmony. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): Your thoughts will be louder than usual, as they are invigorated by the work you give them. This is important to you! Those who really know you can almost hear your thoughts in their own heads. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): So many of life’s changes occur so slowly over time that you can’t tell the difference over the course of a day. That’s why the change you see today will be momentous and exciting indeed. AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Even though technically you may feel it’s not possible to make people happy, if they find happiness on your watch, it will be a point of personal pride, rightly so. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): The popular solution will work for you, too. Are you wary of finding luck with the well-trodden path? Don’t worry: You’ll do things a little differently (you won’t be able to help yourself), and you’ll still get results.
