Rakaia homicide accused named The 26-year-old man charged with the murder of Rakaia dairy farm worker, Tony Waldron had name suppression orders lifted in the High Court yesterday. Joshua Dylan Morris-Bamber, a kitchen hand from Christchurch, appeared by audio-visual link in front of Justice Gerald Nation and while no plea was formally entered Morris-Bamber’s defence counsel Margaret Sewell indicated a not guilty plea. The trial has been set to begin on November 2 next year in Christchurch. Interim name suppression orders had been put in place following an initial appearance in the Christchurch District Court earlier this month fol-

lowing the arrest of Morris-Bamber, two weeks after Waldron was found dead at his Gardiners Road address on September 18. His defence counsel asked for the name suppression order to continue based on undue hardship and stress that publication of his name would cause to family members but Justice Nation disagreed on the basis that grounds for continuation had not been set out. Morris-Bamber was remanded in custody for a case review hearing on December 13. Waldron, who was aged 29 at the time of his death and a father of two, was found dead in his bed by a work

colleague on the morning of September 18 after he had failed to turn up for work. He had texted a colleague about 9pm the evening before to say that he was going to get some bourbons. Initial reports suggested the dairy farm worker had died as a result of a gunshot wound, however police would later rule this out as a cause of death. The police investigation, which was led by Detective Senior Sergeant Richard Quested, saw officers and specialist search teams scouring effluent and irrigation ponds near to the Gardiners Road address and also spending considerable time completing searches in both the Rakaia and Selwyn River beds.

Café culture gets a boost in Rakaia By Susan Sandys

Café culture has received a boost in Rakaia as a local couple open a new shop. John and Sue Moorren have established the Little Red Café in the same refurbished historic building as The Red Shed gift shop, behind Salmon Tales. “It’s an incredible building, amazing history,” John said. Originally from Ashburton, John is a painter and decorator by trade, with a background in retail and construction. He has converted part of the interior of the former grain seed shed to house the new business, while incorporating features such as its hardy 100-millimetre thick wooden floorboards, thought to be Australian hardwood. “It’s actually really nice to keep it looking authentic and old, and to have something nice happening in these buildings is great.” He suspected the building, which was moved from Culverden to its current site near the Rakaia railway line in the 1950s, was at least 100 years old. John is supporting Sue in the café business, as he pursues his day job as a painter and decorator. Sue is a qualified chef, and is enjoying not only making coffees for the growing number of customers who are frequenting the shop each day, but also cooking meals and preparing cabinet food using regionally-sourced ingredients. It is not the first time the pair have worked together in hospitality, they ran a ski lodge in Methven for the winter last year. This followed Sue managing Salmon Tales, and Café Macaroon at Hinds, while more recently she has been working for famous Topp Twin Dame Lynda at Topp Country Café in Methven.

Sue Moorren is getting busier by the day at her new café.

Firefighters ‘rapt’ with new interest By Susan Sandys

About 250 people turned up to an open day at the Ashburton Fire Station on Sunday, far exceeding organisers’ expectations. Senior firefighter Glenn Sowman said about 20 people registered their interest in becoming new members of the Ashburton volunteer and Ashburton rural fire brigades. “We are absolutely rapt with that, that’s very good,” Sowman said. Currently there are about 55 firefighters belonging to the urban and rural units in the town. Approximately another five urban and five rural firefighters were required, Sowman said, with the main drive being for day-time crew. In addition, volunteers were being sought for operational and brigade support. The open day had gone well, with visitors enjoying seeing the displays, and youngsters participating in firefighting demonstrations. Anyone interested in joining can contact Ashburton Volunteer Fire Brigade chief Alan Burgess on Right – Dreaming about fighting fires and saving people is seven-year-old William Broker, with real firefighter Tom Kitchen.

Be prepared for changeable weather, trampers told By Linda Clarke

Day-trippers and trampers on longer walks are being reminded to prepare for Mid Canterbury’s changeable weather conditions, or risk their lives. The warming comes after a woman died on the Tongariro crossing and eight trampers were rescued from the Southern Alps in North Otago at the weekend. Mid Canterbury search and rescue boss Don Geddes said people needed to plan their trip, take appropriate clothing and sustenance, and tell someone where they were going.

He said people also needed to check the excursion they planned was also within their capabilities. Police recovered the body of a 51-year-old woman from Red Crater, Mt Tongariro, on Sunday. She had been part of a group of four, who set out Friday morning to hike around the Tongariro Northern Circuit. After taking a wrong turn, three of them turned back while the woman carried on. She did not return as arranged. A party of eight from the University of Otago was rescued by helicopter from the Huxley Hut on Saturday morning after a personal locator beacon was activat-

ed late Friday night. Searchers found the party about 1.5km from the hut, which they had been unable to reach because of heavy snow in the area. Two women were found to be slightly hypothermic and were treated. Geddes, who has been in search and rescue for 43 years, said a personal locator beacon was the ideal precaution, though day-trippers might not consider them essential. Everyone heading out for a tramp should always tell someone where they were going and when they expected to be back.

He said the website contained great advice and an online outdoor intentions form that could be filled in and emailed to a friend or family member. If you don’t notify anyone of your intentions, people won’t know where to look if you don’t come back, he said. “It is really about being prepared. Plan your trip and tell someone where you are going. Check the weather and take adequate equipment, food and clothing. Make sure you are not overextending your capabilities.” Geddes said people who were

relying on cellphones to raise the alarm if necessary should also remember that there was no cellphone service in parts of the hill and high country. “I think a lot of people from other countries under estimate the risk in New Zealand, particularly with our terrain because we are such a little island. But the weather is prone to sudden changes so people should heed the warnings.” Geddes said with increased numbers walking the Te Aroroa trail, which passes through Mid Canterbury, it was important people were well prepared.

Lake Hood issues safety reminder By Linda Clarke

Remember your lifejacket and respect others is the message from Lake Hood management ahead of a predicted busy summer. Lake manager Gilbert Murdoch said there were boats on the lake year-round but many more over the warmer months. All were expected to abide by the rules, which included the compulsory wearing of lifejackets. Users are also expected to travel the right way around the lake and have observers if they are towing skiers or inflatables. Observers are also compulsory for jet skis towing. Murdoch, a safety warden on a jet ski, would be patrolling the waterway over Labour weekend reinforcing lake rules and educating people. “He is not there to rule the roost but if someone is without a lifejacket he will mention it. Really, though, it’s about showing respect to other water users.” The warden will also be checking the vessels using the lake are registered, as required. Registration can be done online or at the Lake House. Murdoch said it was timely in Safer Boating Week, this week, for people to check their boats

were ready, maintained and operational prior to the summer recreation season. Plenty of visitors are expected at Lake Hood, not all on the water. The enhanced picnicking and walking areas are attracting users year-round. The lake will also host several regattas, the first on November 10 and another on November

30 and December 1. The New Brighton Power Boat Club will host an event on January 18. Water temperature is currently 11 degrees Celsuis. Murdoch said all users should also remember to take their rubbish home. The national Safer Boating Forum also wants boaties to prepare well for the busy summer

because 12 people have died in recreational boating accidents since March, a traditionally quieter time on the water. The Safer Boating Forum’s Chair and Maritime NZ’s Deputy Director of Communications and Stakeholder Engagement, Sharyn Forsyth, said it was unusual to see such a large proportion of recreational boating

deaths occurring during the winter, because most recreational boating happens during the warmer summer months. “Tragically, last year’s very low death rate has not been repeated,” she said. “We want to make sure the upcoming summer does not follow this winter’s trend.” Boaties are urged to Prep, Check, Know before they get back on the water. Prep your boat: Service the engine, check and change the fuel, check the battery, and generally give the boat a good once-over. Check your gear: Make sure your lifejackets are still fit for purpose and you have enough, service any inflatable lifejackets, ensure you have two reliable forms of communication equipment – usually, marine VHF radio is best, check the weather forecast. Know the rules: Ensure you know the rules of the road on the water, and check your local bylaws to make sure you understand what the requirements are in your area. Forsyth said that boaties should always follow the boating safety code –- wear lifejackets, carry at least two waterproof ways of calling for help, check the weather, avoid alcohol, and take skipper responsibility.


Spread the love this Christmas with home-made cards Mid Canterbury people are being encouraged to send some love this Christmas by making home-made cards that will be given to lonely people in the community. Around 250 cards were made last year for the Sending Love NZ project and local organiser Moyra Whiting is hoping for at least that many this year. The nationwide project is in its second year and is based on a goal of making a festive gesture to another person who may experience loneliness over the holiday period. It is a personal touch from one person to another, said Whiting, who will also be among members of the Ashburton County Lions Club making cards this week. “In Ashburton, the hope is that we help

many people on Christmas Day to know that they are thought of.” Cards will be delivered to the rest homes in town, for distribution by their staff, and if there are enough cards, it is hoped that participants in the Christmas Day community lunch will also receive a card. Whiting said anyone could make a card and “post” it in special receiving boxes at the Ashburton Art Gallery, Paper Plus or Robert Harris Café. Envelopes should not be sealed. She said the Sending Love project was a great platform to teach communities and children about the power of a simple act of kindness and the impact it could have on the recipient.

Heavy snow watch By Susan Sandys






The MetService yesterday issued a Heavy Snow Watch for inland Mid Canterbury from 7pm tonight to 4am Wednesday. A cold front was to move over the country yesterday, while another cold front was expected to move up the South Island from this afternoon to early Wednesday morning, bringing significant snow from northern Otago to the Kaikoura Ranges. Snow could lower to the Methven area, about 300 metres above sea level, with significant accumulations above 500 metres. MetService meteorologist Kyle Lee said such weather was a regular spring pattern. “The whole South Island can expect to

see wet and windy weather (today),” Lee said. “Although it is not common to get snow this low at this time of year, we’ve seen it before during those cooler, more unsettled spring seasons.” As the low pressure system makes its way northwards on Wednesday, the North Island would get rain and strong winds, and snow affecting the highest roads. There would be an improving trend later in the week, however, the country’s temperatures would struggle to recover after the cold blast and remain on the cooler side. “There is some good news for Labour weekend though. “From Friday, the weather looks to be more settled for much of Aotearoa.”

Farmers back waste collection events Mid Canterbury farmers who took their chemical containers and other farm waste to drop-offs in Selwyn and Geraldine last month contributed to the collection of over 37,000kg of waste nationwide. Six one-off events around the country organised by Agrecovery collected nearly 4300kg of woven polypropylene fertiliser bags, 12,065kg of chemicals, 7045kg of low density polyethylene silage and balage wrap and 8029kg of high density polyethylene chemical containers. The events enabled farmers and growers to safely dispose of a variety of farm waste with agrichemical containers, unwanted agrichemicals, used agricultural oils, seed and feed bags, and soft plastics all dropped off by 280 farmers and growers who took part. They were in addition to the several permanent drop-off points that operate around Mid Canterbury. The events are part of a Rural Waste Minimisation Project, designed to tackle some of the barriers to recycling that New Zealand’s rural communities face. Brendan Caird, a Temuka dairy farmer went along to the one-stop shop held in Geraldine to drop of agrichemical containers and said it was great to have the option to do the right thing and recycle the containers. “We have built up a collection of



these now and recycling them is a much better option than dumping them.” Containers are recycled in New Zealand into safe end uses, predominantly underground cable covers warning people not to dig near live wires. Used chemicals are safely disposed of, fertiliser bags are pelletised and used to make furniture and toys while balage wrap is recycled into tuffboard – a plywood substitute used in construction projects and manufactured by Plasback. Farmers and growers across the country have had to find ways to manage their on-farm waste for generations. Sometimes, due to circumstances, this has meant burning or burying waste items because there are no other options available. An Environment Canterbury study in 2013 found that, on average, farms were producing nearly 10 tonnes of non-natural rural waste each year and for many there was no easy or safe way to dispose of it. The one-stop shop waste events were trialled in 2018 and found to be very successful. With backing from the Ministry for the Environment, Agrecovery was able to extend the trial this year. Agrecovery works with used farm plastics recycler, Plasback, to support the collection and recycling of soft plastics such as silage wrap.

Prisoner mail rights curtailed By Derek Cheng NZME

Prisoners’ mail looks set to be more tightly controlled, including being blocked if its message could go viral online or if it could be harmful to groups of people based on race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or political opinion. Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis has added the new rules to the Corrections Amendment Bill, which will have its third reading today and is expected to pass with the support of Labour, New Zealand First and the Greens. The new provisions will add new restrictions on the right to freedom of expression, but the Government will see them as justified. The changes follow a review of whether the law was fit for purpose after the failure of Corrections to properly vet the mail sent from prison by the accused March 15 gunman. In August, a letter from the accused that Corrections should have withheld was published on the 4chan website, and Corrections later revealed that a second letter from the accused was mistakenly let through the system. Despite putting these mistakes down to human error and implementing tighter rules for the accused’s mail, Davis ordered a review of the law. The law already allows prisoners’ mail to be blocked for a number of reasons including whether it might threaten or in-

Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis has introduced tighter rules on mail sent from prison, following mistakes that were made to the accused March 15 gunman’s mail. timidate the recipient, endanger the safety or welfare of someone, or encourage an offence. The new rules would: ■■ lower the threshold of what mail might be harmful by considering both direct and indirect effects, which would include someone seeing it on social media ■■ take account of whether the mail might threaten or intimidate not only the mail’s recipient, but any person ■■ add discrimination as new grounds for blocking mail as per the Human Rights Act, which includes race, religious belief, sexual orientation, sex, marital status, disability, age, political opinion and employ-

ment status. Advice to the Government said the current law was at risk of being exploited by prisoners seeking to radicalise or re-victimise people, or promote hostility against groups such as those based on race or religious beliefs. Corrections could block this type of mail without changing the law, but it would be open to legal challenge and possible compensation payments to the inmates who had written the letters. In its regulatory impact statement (RIS) on the changes, the Treasury said that Corrections would be able to withhold harmful mail that could be posted online and widely shared.

“These individuals may also become a focal point for sympathetic individuals and groups in the community, who may seek to draw attention to and amplify their hostile views,” Treasury’s RIS said. Using racism as grounds for blocking prisoner mail is already possible under the current law, but existing case law meant that the bar was set high to justify restricting one’s right to freedom of expression. The current law also excludes discrimination based on anything other than race as grounds for a civil offence. Amending the law so that prisoner mail could only be sent if it supported prisoner rehabilitation was also considered, but rejected as it could easily be circumvented or applied too widely. The changes do not include the words “extremism” or “violent extremism”, which aligns with Ministry of Justice advice that those terms were open to interpretation. The changes were introduced to the Corrections Amendment bill last week during the bill’s committee of the whole House stage, and were supported by Labour, NZ First and the Greens, but opposed by National. National’s objections to the bill were less about the bill’s changes to prisoners’ mail and more about the use of police cells to house prisoners, which National supports.

All he wanted was the music turned down By Vaimoana Tapaleao NZME

As the blows kept coming – to his head, face and body – a father-of-five continued to stand and defend himself as his wife screamed at his attackers to stop. Albert Maynard suffered serious injuries to his head and face when a group allegedly attacked him – one armed with a wooden stake – about 1am on Saturday, in Flat Bush, South Auckland. His wife, Monika Maynard, would effectively save his life when – seeing the attack from upstairs – ran outside to yell at the group while on the phone to police. “As soon as he approached the car, they immediately – in seconds – got out of the car and started attacking him,’’ she said. Her 54-year-old husband had gone out to investigate where loud music was coming from on their street. “He initially thought they were neighbours having a little party,’’ she said. “But then when he realised that it wasn’t the neighbours – it was actually coming from a car – he went across to talk to them.’’ She told the Herald her husband walked across the road to where the vehicle was parked and asked one of the men inside to turn the music down. It was then all four males got out of the vehicle and began to

In brief Crash enquiries ongoing Police say the Sunday afternoon crash at Rakaia which resulted in a motorcyclist being airlifted to Christchurch Hospital with critical injuries did not involve a car. Initially police reported the crash on Dunford Street at about 12.55pm was between a car and a motorcycle, however, they updated this yesterday and said it was now clear that only the motorbike was involved. “Enquiries into the cause of the crash are ongoing,” a police spokesperson added.

Cop’s driving careless A police officer has admitted a charge of careless driving following a crash in Auckland earlier this year. And he has had his case dealt with by way of diversion, avoiding a conviction. The 49-year-old was charged with careless driving after he crashed a police car while undertaking urgent duty driving on Ngahue Drive in Stonefields in January. At the time police said the incident occurred as a police car was on its way to a job. The officer collided with a vehicle driven by a member of the public. - NZME

Desperate search The family of missing Kiwis rugby league stalwart Michael McClennan are “holding onto hope” as the search entered its sixth night last night.

Brian “Bluey” McClennan, himself a former Warriors and Kiwis coach, said his father’s dementia had intensified over the past several years and the family was getting increasingly worried for his safety. “We just want to find him. We are holding out hope that he is alive, but each day the chances are getting slimmer and slimmer.” - NZME

Boris ‘still in the game’

Ashburton Guardian

Is Noel Edmonds moving to Auckland?

By Stephen Castle British prime minister Boris Johnson will try again this week to get his draft deal through Parliament. He has one key thing going for him: a divided opposition. He suspended Parliament and was rebuked by Britain’s top court. He purged his party and lost a string of votes. After trying to strong-arm lawmakers into supporting his new Brexit plan, Prime Minister Johnson was forced to ask for a delay for withdrawal from the European Union, a request he had vowed never to make. Yet, while this litany of failures should be spectacularly good news for opponents of Brexit, who came out in huge crowds onto the streets of London on Sunday, Johnson still has a surprisingly good chance of leading Britain out of the bloc. Johnson is not just still in the game, despite a remarkable succession of miscalculations, but he is also within striking distance of a majority vote in Parliament for his Brexit plan. The foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, predicted yesterday that the government proposal would pass. The odds are better than ever because three years of Brexit chaos has left the nation angry, frustrated and tired, the opposition is divided, and many expect a general election for which Johnson has been gearing up for, with speeches highlighting platform issues such as more money for the police force. The situation is fluid and the math is tight, so the votes expected this week could go either way. But even if they go against him, Johnson is well placed for the general election that everyone expects soon, analysts say. Anand Menon, a professor of European studies at King’s College London, described it as a “remarkable turnaround”. According to Menon, the prime minister is the beneficiary of “two or three contextual changes” that put him in a better position than his predecessor, Theresa May, who failed three times to win approval for her Brexit deal. “There is a palpable sense of fatigue about Brexit that is a lot more marked than it was earlier in the year,” Menon said. “And there is an election coming soon, so everyone is thinking of that.” But Johnson is also lucky in that his opponents are divided, unsure of their tactics and fretting about upsetting voters who voted “leave” in the 2016 referendum. The main opposition Labour Party has always wanted to keep closer economic ties to the EU. And yesterday, Labour said it would try to sabotage John-

Christmas in October? Surely not Y

esterday was a significantly disturbing day. I’ll mark the moment specifically, Monday, October 21, around three o’clock in the afternoon. Not a significant date in normal terms, but considering the nature of the subject, it’s significant. Here I was, going about my daily business, without a single care in the world. Music playing quietly through my ear buds blissfully oblivious to most happenings around me. And then it hit me like the afternoon train which rushes its way past the office here each day with such force and impact that it stops you in your tracks. A gentle tune started playing through my ears. Toe-tapping at the beginning, largely because

of its familiarity but growing in concern as the realisation came as to what I was actually listening to. A Christmas Carol, in October – Jingle Bell Rock, to be precise. I think I could have accepted Fairy Tale of New York, or possibly even squeezed some appreciation for Snoopy’s Christmas, but a full-blown, solely dedicated tune to Christmas this early just seems like sacrilege. Safe to say the ear buds came

out, the music got turned off and I spent the next five minutes sitting, probably looking a little like a stunned mullet, wondering what on earth had just happened. Here we are, 64 days out from Christmas and we’re already in the spirit. Or at least it would seem some people are. Now, I might be being a bit of a Grinch here, but it seems just a little premature, surely? The biggest issue is that once it begins, it can usually be hard to stop the onslaught and before you know it, it’s all consuming and you’re decking the halls and rocking around the tree right through until the end of December. So, the question is – when is it too early to start preparing and

getting excited about the one day of the year where normal life gets thrown into complete disarray in a blur of wrapping paper, excited children and parents and grandparents who fall asleep in their chair after consuming too much pavlova for lunch? Logic would suggest that anything before the first of December is stretching a pretty long bow and that certainly anything this early in the year is a sign of absolute desperation from someone. We haven’t even had Halloween yet, let alone Guy Fawkes Night. There’s something quite enthralling about the way people’s mannerisms and overall moods tend to change in the build-up to December 25. They’re a little

more jovial, overall excited about life in general and looking forward to wrapping things up for the year. Work places will become a little more excitable with the prospect of another year coming to a close and, in some cases, a good break during the festive season which is always worth celebrating. But getting into the spirit – as they like to say – in the middle of October might be just going about things the wrong way because there’s an awful lot of water to still go under the bridge before we get to December. So, it’s a no from me to Christmas carols and celebrations this early in the year, in fact any time before December 1. My ears just aren’t quite ready for that kind of invasion, yet.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Tuesday, October 22, the 295th day of 2019. There are 70 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On October 22, 1962, in a nationally broadcast address, President John F. Kennedy revealed the presence of Soviet-built missile bases under construction in Cuba and announced a quarantine of all offensive military equipment being shipped to the Communist island nation. On this date: In 1797, French balloonist AndreJacques Garnerin made the first parachute descent, landing safely from a height of about 3000 feet over Paris. In 1811, composer and piano virtuoso Franz Liszt was born in the Hungarian town of Raiding in present-day Austria. In 1934, bank robber Charles Pretty Boy Floyd was shot to death by federal agents and local police at a farm near East Liverpool, Ohio. In 1967, Denny Hulme became the first – and so far only – New Zealander to win the Formula One World Championship. In 1972, acknowledged as one of New Zealand’s most accomplished poets, James K. Baxter had devoted the last years of his life to social work among alcoholics and drug addicts. He died in Auckland, aged 46. In 1979, the US government allowed the deposed Shah of Iran to travel to New York for medical treatment — a decision that precipitated the Iran hostage crisis. In 1991, the European Community and the European Free Trade Association concluded a landmark accord to create a free trade zone of 19 nations by 1993. In 1995, the largest gathering of world leaders in history marked the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. In 2001, a second Washington, DC, postal worker, Joseph P.

PRESS COUNCIL Farming got a big look-in at the recent local body election with some solid Federated Farmers leaders elected in a number of jurisdictions.

Rural does it again for local government T

he local body elections produced big changes in council leadership around the country. I welcome all the newbies to the precarious world of local politics. Farming got a big look-in with some solid Federated Farmers leaders elected in a number of jurisdictions. This is sorely needed for a rural community increasingly under pressure to save the world and perhaps even turn into trees. Our congratulations to among others Allan Baird, elected to Southland Regional Council, Ian Mackenzie and Megan Hands, elected to Environment Canterbury, Sandra Faulkner and Kerry Worsnop, who won seats on the Gisborne District Council, Lynda Murchison in at the Hurunui District, Will Foley to Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and Donald McIntyre’s return to Taranaki Regional Council.

Western Bay John Scrimgeour’s return to that council, and Westport dairy farmer Jamie Cleine’s new challenge as mayor of Westport. That all said the overall voter turnout was barely half that of the 2017 General Election and came in at a sad 41.4 per cent, down on 2016’s 42.0 per cent and around the same as 2013’s 41.3 per cent. This suggests a powerful disconnect between communities and their councils is bedding in. One can be cynical about this – that old saying that if voting made a difference they wouldn’t

let us do it, might underlie the low participation but we at Federated Farmers think differently. Down the years we have seen councillors from the farming sector bring much needed common sense to local decision making, through hard work on planning and financial committees and the full council table. What can’t be changed, the system of property value rates for example, can still be made more equitable if the right policies are applied. In terms of voter turnout that system has a lot to answer for, with ratepayers taking a much greater interest as they are the ones that get invoiced. Many candidates’ flyers are addressed directly to ratepayers, as those who rent or lease have little idea of the cost of council services, and by dint of human nature take less of interest. The statistics also suggest

farmers turning out in more solid numbers than the cities, with the turnout for rural districts at 56.8 per cent, well up on the national average. Rates and regulation have a lot to do with this. We need to do more work regarding the online voting option, to get it secure, but the method of voting isn’t the deal-breaker some make it out to be. More fundamental reform is needed if councils are to gain more legitimacy at the ballot box.

Awards honour heritage farmers Mid Canterbury farming families with a long heritage in farming their land are being reminded they have just under six weeks to submit their application in time for this year’s New Zealand Century Farms and Station Awards. Three Mid Canterbury families were among last year’s awards – the McKendry, Oakley and Gallagher families. The awards, which began in 2005, aim to capture and preserve family histories of pioneering families and their descendants. Eligible families submit narratives of their farm history, together with copies of related photographs and supporting documents which are then archived at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington, ensuring all records are kept in perpetuity. NZCFSA chairperson Karen Roughan said that judging by the number of applications already in, it was gearing up to be another good year. “Word certainly seems to be spreading in the farming community that this is a worthwhile thing to do.” She said feedback from previous award recipients was that they found the whole process

The Oakley family of Rakaia was among heritage farming families to be honoured earlier this year. PHOTO SUPPLIED an immensely rewarding experience – from the gathering of the farming history through to the coming together of extended

family at the awards ceremony. “It’s a chance for all generations to take a breath and truly reflect on the challenges and

achievements over the past 100 plus years – and to share those memories with other farming families. It really is a very special

evening.” The committee believes that keeping any farm or station in a family from generation to generation through challenging times is an impressive achievement and deserves to be recognised. A formal dinner in Lawrence each May honours the awardees and their significant achievement of 100 or more years in farming. It is a chance for recipients to meet each other and formally receive their distinctive bronze plaque and certificate to display on their property. To date, over 450 families from throughout New Zealand have joined this exclusive circle of centenarians and sesquicentenarians. Families who have owned and farmed their land since 1919 or earlier are eligible to apply for this special acknowledgement of their hard work and perseverance. Any families who would like to apply for this year’s intake need to do so by November 30. Further information, including application forms, can be found on the NZCFSA website www.

Methane-reducing cattle feed a step closer The Government is supporting a project that could substantially reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions from cattle. The Cawthron Institute will receive $100,000 from the Government’s Sustainable Food & Fibre Futures fund to turn a native red seaweed (asparagopsis armata) into a greenhouse gas-busting cattle feed supplement for domestic and global markets. “If successful, this project could be a game-changer for farmers here,

and around the world,” Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor said. “In previous trials asparagopsis has proven to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in livestock by up to 80 per cent. Other products typically provide reductions of between 10 and 20 per cent. “Australian research estimates that if just 10 per cent of global ruminant producers adopted asparagopsis as an additive to feed their livestock, it would have the same impact for our climate as remov-

ing 50 million cars from the world’s roads. “Farmers know better than most about the effects of climate change and many are innovating so that they can drive down on-farm emissions. They need technology like this to help them get there though.” Sustainable agribusiness and transitioning to a low emissions economy is a major focus for the Government and it has put aside $40 million a year to invest in projects that deliver economic, environmen-

tal and social benefits for all Kiwis. “Aquaculture is a growth industry for this country and has the potential to play a more significant role in our economy. It’s currently worth $600 million a year and employs over 3000 people,” O’Connor said. “The Cawthron project could lay the foundations for a new high-value industry, along with the jobs that go with it. There is also export potential and on-farm economic benefits, including price premiums for milk and meat.”

Farm gate price watch …

MARKET REPORT By Guy Trafford Dairy prices are going through a period of stable pricing with last week’s global dairy trade auction lifting by 0.5 per cent and whole milk powder static with no change from the last auction. Given that we are in the cross-over period between the northern hemisphere production and southern and therefore product supply being strong, the positive result is a little surprising, although welcome. What is being predicted from the United States for the coming season is higher milk production, even though cow numbers are the lowest since early 2016 (9.318 million cows) and production is predicted to lift 2 per cent. Prices for US producers in 2020 are expected to be much the same as they currently are. Rabobank are a little more gloomy in a recent update of the global picture. They are forecasting that the second half of 2020 will have a possible global recession which will reduce returns. China posted its lowest year-on-year GDP growth for 30 years and this will have a ripple effect through South East Asia and beyond. The EU also has challenges compounded by the Brexit issues in the UK. The Brexit problem the UK and EU face appears no closer to being resolved except that the October 31 deadline is rapidly approaching and, while that should be the line in the sand to settle on some sort of deal, the fact it is being conducted by politicians means that some sort of wriggle room for time is being negotiated. Flying quietly under the radar has been the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) negotiations. Sixteen countries are involved in the RCEP talks: the 10 members of ASEAN and the six nations that have free-trade agreements with the regional bloc, these are; Australia, China, India, Japan, Korea, and New Zealand. Initially the target was to get some sort of deal confirmed by November. With negotiations ticking over since 2012 it is hard to imagine anything dramatic happening in the next couple of weeks, however, stranger things have happened. The carrot to create a deal is certain benefits to New Zealand with a potential 3.5 billion consumers involved and currently around 52 per cent of New Zealand exports going to this region and returning $5 billion in export receipts. Any reduction in tariffs would be welcomed with the big prize being India however, there appears to be a campaign operating there against New Zealand access, particularly for dairy products. In September, RS Sodhi, managing director of Amul, India’s biggest dairy co-operative, accused Australia and New Zealand of trying to “destroy” the local industry. Having already “wrecked Sri Lanka’s dairy market”, the pair had a “hidden

agenda” to end India’s self-reliance in milk production, he claimed. A similar strategy was conducted in Sri Lanka which was disruptive to trade there. Closer to home, spring is starting to warm up after a relatively cool start and slower growth. There have even been some irrigators running in Canterbury last week, although the recent rain has got them turned off again. It appears the CPW irrigation scheme has brought out some perverse behaviour from irrigators. As the water comes under pressure, power costs are minimal for most with (just) wheel motors requiring power and, with farmers paying for the water, whether it is used or not, means keeping soils topped up comes at little cost. Compounding this action is the risk of reduced river flows meaning farmers are required to ‘purchase’ lake-stored water at some stage. This comes at a high cost so ‘storing’ water in the soil, be it only temporary, appears to be a driver for some. For North Island farmers, irrigation is likely to be the last thing on farmers’ minds, with persistent rains coming through. While from this time onwards, generally, all rain is good rain, there is a limit to just how much is required. The milking season, while still very early (to end of September) to predict volumes, is ahead of last year by 2 per cent and, with widespread moisture, the pre-Christmas period should achieve good results. A couple of key meetings that are coming up for Fonterra suppliers are the annual general meeting on November 7 in Invercargill and followed on November 11 by Fonterra’s Shareholders’ fund annual general meeting. With the Fonterra share price still trading above $4 and stable, we seem to have entered a period of quiet while shareholders and observers await the next round of economic reporting.


Sheep Schedules are quiet this week with few changes. Last season’s store lambs are starting to get difficult to achieve premiums but with new season lambs starting to appear, the market will begin to fill up again. New season store lambs are getting around the mid $130s which is an estimated $15 up on last year. Store ewes are still selling well and matching prime lambs for gross price. Wool There was no wool sale last week. Cattle A similar story to sheep with little change on schedules with just cows having a lift in the south. Saleyards report good stock selling well but the lesser types hard going. Venison Another lift this week with the upward trend continuing.

Trade war concerns ease

the USA become a large market for small SME New Zealanders.” Exporter concerns A weak New Zealand dollar and rising costs remain the biggest concerns for exporters in the next 12 months. “A lot of exporters are also importers,” Foy said, “they buy a lot of their raw materials or manufacture offshore, so therefore the dollar fluctuations can impact them [significantly].” Thirty eight per cent of export-

Pharmacies selling vaping products NZME Vaping products are now being sold on pharmacy shelves throughout New Zealand. Vaping company Vapix, which is branded as a health product, is now being sold in Unichem and Life Pharmacy stores around the country. The product is only available to those older than 18 and is marketed at smokers, encouraging them to “make the switch”. Vapix is a sub-brand of Kiwi vaping company Alt New Zealand, co-founded by Ben Pryor and Jonathan Devery. The pair of entrepreneurs say that the arrival of the Vapix brand in pharmacies is only the start of an ongoing investigation into how vaping can be used to administer a range of natural medicines. Last year, the pair registered the company Myriad Pharmaceuticals specifically with the goal of looking into medicinal

applications for vaping. Marie Bennett, the owner of Unichem All Seasons Pharmacy in West Auckland, said the decision to stock vaping products came about from customers requesting the products as a means to quit smoking. “As the Ministry of Health makes clear, vaping is an effective tool to support smokers to quit tobacco and it is less harmful than smoking,” Bennett said. Bennett added she is pleased to be able to offer smokers an option to help them quit. The decision by pharmacies to start stocking vaping products comes off the back of comments by Associate Health Minister Jenny Salesa that regulations of the vaping industry are imminent. Among those proposed regulations are limits on nicotine levels and a ban on flavours. There have also been further suggestions that the advertising of vaping products may be prohibited. This has led to the vaping indus-

try setting aside their differences to form the Vaping Trade Association of New Zealand (VTANZ) to lobby against the possibility of over-regulation. While vaping is viewed as a safer alternative to smoking, there are growing concerns about the impact e-cigarettes could have on users. There have been numerous reports out of the US recently, which have linked vaping to a deadly lung disease. The concerns around this have led the US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention to recommend people don’t vape at all. India has gone a step further by banning vaping entirely. There is, however, still international support for the vaping industry in the United Kingdom, where Public Health England has stood by its position that vaping carries a small fraction of the risk of smoking. The question now is which way New Zealand will lean once local regulations are passed.

Taco Bell plans 25 New Zealand sites in 5 years NZME Restaurant Brands chief executive Russel Creedy says the fast food operator’s plans to have 25 Taco Bells trading in New Zealand in the next five years is a “conservative target” hinting at more to come. The NZX-listed company, which owns and operates KFC, Pizza Hut and Carl’s Jr stores in New Zealand, Australia and Hawaii, will open its first Taco Bell store in LynnMall in the first week of November, and Restaurant Brands plans to have another open in downtown Auckland by March. By the end of 2020, Restaurant

Brands would be operating seven Taco Bell locations in New Zealand, and around the same number in Australia, Creedy said. Creedy said the company, 75 per cent owned by Mexico’s Finaccess Capital, planned to have at least 25 trading in the New Zealand market in the next five years, and at least 40 in Australia, including drive-thru locations. “The brand has huge potential, New Zealand alone, it’s foreseeable to have 50-60 Taco Bells at least going forward. That would address the main urban centres.” The brand will serve tacos, burritos and quesadillas, along with fro-

zen margaritas, beer and an alcoholic drinks menu. Outside of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch are next to get Taco Bell stores. “Regional New Zealand is on the radar,” Creedy said. “The intention is to be able to put a Taco Bell into those cities as soon as we can. “Christchurch and Wellington will certainly get Taco Bells, hopefully, one each next year.” Creedy said he did not believe the Taco Bell brand would outperform Restaurant Brand’s market darling, KFC, which has experienced increased sales and improved margins in recent years.

previous year. The outlook for the year ahead was more positive than sentiment in last year’s survey, Foy said, with exporters increasingly looking to develop new products and services, to enter new markets and move online. “We’re seeing a lot of New Zealand businesses, particularly SMEs, who are taking the opportunity to sell their product not only domestically but to Australia and beyond ... we’re really seeing

ers said the cost of exporting was a major concern – an increase of 13 per cent from 2018, while 29 per cent cited industrial regulation. Just on half of exporters said they had made an effort to make a positive impact to the environment by using recyclable or biodegradable packaging, removing plastic and utilising electric delivery vehicles. “The sentiments of Kiwi exporters are upbeat in the face of considerable international uncertainty,” ExportNZ executive director, Catherine Beard, said. “Despite the confidence to manage the uncertainty, there remain strong concerns with staying competitive in the face of increasing industrial relations costs, which weighs on small to medium-sized firms when they make export decisions.” A joint initiative between ExportNZ and DHL, a total of 419 New Zealand exporters were surveyed. The key industry segments were manufacturing, online retail, agriculture, forestry or fishing, professional scientific and technical equipment and transport and storage.


Concerns of a trade war appear to have eased for many New Zealand exporters as they look ahead to a year of increased international orders. Half of the respondents in the 2019 ExportNZ DHL Export Barometer report said they experienced increased international orders last year, while 61 per cent said they were optimistic that their overseas orders would increase in the new year. While 50 per cent of exporters reported an increase in orders over the past 12 months, Mark Foy, DHL Express NZ country manager, said this was the lowest number the freight company had recorded in the last four years of the survey. About 38 per cent of exporters said the fluctuating New Zealand dollar was the biggest barrier to exports in the year, while 29 per cent said increased costs from industrial regulations, and 28 per cent said strength of overseas competition. “While increased costs may not have directly affected them personally yet, it’s a real concern,’’

the survey says. A low dollar is not all good news for exporters, as many are also importing materials. Twenty five per cent of exporters last year said the global trade war between China and the United States was the biggest barrier to exports, compared to 18 per cent of those surveyed this year. The United States, the world’s largest importer, started a bitter tariff war with China, the world’s largest exporter, last year. “Uncertainty dents confidence. Exporters have lived with it for a year and they are more confident now that it’s not going to have a significant impact, therefore that is following through to their overall confidence,” Foy said. Exporters now perceived escalation of a global trade war as an opportunity for the US or China to import out of New Zealand, he said. “Exporters have had a tough 12 months, but they are optimistic about the next 12 months.” Stats NZ figures show for the year ended August, goods exports were valued at $59.1 billion in August up $2.7 billion from the

Stepping up – Our 19th century businesswomen 1

By Catherine Bishop

Time, gentlemen, please!’ When Ashburton publican Ann Butler died in 1895, Dick Seddon sent a wreath. They were not family and by then, when Dick was premier, probably did not move in the same social circles. But both Ann Butler and Dick’s wife Louisa Seddon had lived in Kumara on the West Coast, where both had run hotels. In Ashburton, Ann was at the Butler’s Family Hotel, on the corner of Cass and Havelock Streets, one of several hotels in Ashburton at the end of the 19th century. The family hotel was built in 1880 and survived 20 years as a hotel before becoming a boarding house, when Ashburton became dry in 1903. When it first opened, it was not Ann but “JF Butler, (late of Arahura, West Coast)”, that would “beg to inform his friends and the public generally that he has opened the … large and commodious hotel”. In fact, JF Butler, or John, husband of Ann, probably had little to do with the work of the hotel. He was an invalid, having been paralysed some years earlier. Although some advertisements made it sound like it was John Butler’s establishment, very quickly, it was being referred to as ‘Mrs Butler’s hotel’ – and all the locals would have been in no doubt as to who was in charge. When asking for tenders to build a billiard room, for example, the plans could be seen at ‘Mrs Butler’s Family Hotel’. By 1888 the licence of the hotel was in Ann Butler’s name, but the following year she had problems when she tried to renew it. An amendment to the Licensing Act had declared that married women could not hold licences. Ann’s daughter Esther applied for the licence instead – as a single woman she was still legally allowed to hold a licence. The licensing board in Ashburton

eventually acquiesced to this, even though they, like everyone else in Ashburton, knew Ann was in charge. As a woman in business, and especially in the pub business, Ann may have expected to be looked down upon by Canterbury society. But for most in the colony, coming across a woman in business was not unusual – and a successful businesswoman was admired, particularly when the business was borne of necessity. Ann’s obituary paid tribute to her courage, admiring the way she ‘took the reins in her own hand, and became the breadwinner’ when her husband was paralysed. Needles and pins Ann was not the only entrepreneur in skirts in Ashburton. Just a quick glance at local newspapers around the time Ann opened her hotel, in 1880, reveals several more. Mrs William Adams advertised from Cox Street from 1879 offering to “make up Ladies’ and Children’s Dresses in the Newest Styles and lowest possible charges … with the assistance of a first-class milliner and dressmaker”. Her business moved around the town and her daughters joined her before setting up on their own account in the 1890s. Hannah Adams also signed the 1893 suffrage petition as H E Adams. She had competition. Miss Hodder “from London” was in Moore Street since 1879, joining Mrs E Peterson in Tancred Street and Mrs Manhire in Moore Street. Mrs Morey also had a ladies clothing establishment in Tancred Street. ‘Miss M Buckman French Milliner and Dressmaker’ opened up shop in Peter Street in 1881 having had “long experience in leading houses in Sydney and Melbourne”.


2 Each of these women has a different back story – some appear momentarily in the Ashburton newspapers and then vanish – untraceable. Others pop up in different New Zealand, or sometimes Australian, towns. Some disappear into matrimony, while others are in business because matrimony was a disaster. Hannah Adams’ business was one of the more long-lasting, whereas Mrs E Peterson remains a mystery. Mary Buckman’s business was tied up with that of her brother-in-law, Robert Ruxton – their expansionist ambitions were stymied by a suspicious fire. And Eliza Ann Manhire was an escapee – fighting for her independence from a thoroughly horrendous husband, and surviving through a variety of enterprises in Christchurch, Ashburton, and later, Governor’s Bay. Alongside publicans and dressmakers were a smattering of other businesswomen in ‘unfeminine’ businesses – Catherine Martin carried on the family butchery business for two years after her husband’s death, for example. These women were like many others throughout New Zealand; they stepped up when required and shouldered the burden of breadwinning.

Big bucks for tickets When the All Blacks take the field against England at the Rugby World Cup semi-final on Saturday, there might be some punters sitting in very expensive seats. The excitement and anticipation of the match at International Stadium in Yokohama has prompted a sharp rise in ticket prices. Kiwi fans toying with the idea of making a quick trip over to watch the game could be set back thousands of dollars for just one ticket and a couple more thousand for transport. Yesterday, unofficial resale site StubHub was listing two Catego-

ry A tickets for around $4389.12 each. The cheapest seats for sale, located in Category D, were listed for $783 each. Controversial Swiss-based reseller Viagogo was also listing tickets for sale – prices ranged from $780 to $3500, depending on the ticket type. However, organisers warned against fans purchasing unofficial event tickets. Rugby World Cup wrote on its website there had been several reported cases of customers being denied access to the stadium because they had bought scam tickets.

Filipinos join together By Erin Tasker

Filipino people from around the South Island were in Ashburton at the weekend for a sports fest organisers say was so successful, they’re going to start running it annually. Run by the United Filipinos in Mid Canterbury group, the event was held at the Sports Hall on Tancred Street and involved a full-on schedule of sports that most Kiwis have probably never heard of. Event spokesperson Heidi Sebastian said the games were all traditional Filipino games, but a lot of Filipino children were born in New Zealand and didn’t know much about them, so teaching and education for the younger Filipinos was a big part of the day. There was the odd game that everyone knew though, like the tug-of-war, and Sebastian said everyone who took part had a great time. “We had fun and the following day we had sore backs and sore bodies, and some people had bruises, but it was okay because they said they were really happy. “For some it was the first time they had joined the Sports Fest and they want to do it all over again next year,” Sebastian said. The Sports Fest had been held before, but Saturday’s running was the first in a couple of years. “We are planning to do this every year now, every year in October,” Sebastian said. While it was a day all about sport, there were some Filipino food vendors on site as well as traditional Filipino clothing for sale.

It was a very big day with around 15 different games on the schedule, with the teams earning points throughout the day

leading to a winning team being crowned at the end, and this year it was the red team, Sebastian said.

Hyde hits the front Benji back in charge Riders battled rising winds and each other in Tinwald Cycling Club’s 45km handicap event around the Dawson’s Road block on Sunday. Winner Marty Hyde and his co-markers worked well together to ensure they found the front and kept the chasing bunches at bay in the White Fox and Jones Lawyers race. In the push to the line Hyde managed to get a small gap on sisters Amy Ferguson and Nicole Hands, to claim the victor’s spoils. Ferguson, for the second time this season, got the better of her sister to secure second place, edging Hands into third, while Mark Smitheram produced a gutsy ride to claim fourth place. Marty Cuttle, Ross Templeton and Nick Grijns, who have shown good consistent form in the past weeks, rounded out the top half dozen. Scratch marker Hayden Jefferson rode the course in 66.26 to take fastest time honours, while co-markers Tony Ward and Nigel Douglas took second and third best times. A great field of juniors went to the line to contest a 15km handicap ride, where

Holly Douglas was rewarded for some tough rides over the past few weeks, producing a superb effort to secure the win. The next three place-getters were having their first start in a Sunday road event, with Tegan Marriott showing plenty of dash in the charge to the line to secure the second place spoils, while close on her heels was Sarah Gould, who produced a great ride to take the final podium position. Leah Reid put in a super effort to take fourth place, getting up over fifth place getter Penny Marriott, in the sprint to the line. Mitch Brookland secured sixth place and third fastest time, with Maddi Lowry continuing her good form, riding the distance in 26.58 minutes to secure fastest time honours, while Zoe Spillane claimed second fastest time. Kenny Johnstone took division two honours with Rachel Reid coming in second, and in doing so securing the fastest time. This coming Sunday the club will contest a 48km handicap event around the Grahams Road block.

It has been seven years since Benji Marshall last captained the Kiwis, but on Friday night he will make history when he leads the New Zealand rugby league side once again. Marshall takes over the captaincy from the injured Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, who will miss the upcoming test campaign against Australia and Great Britain following knee surgery. The halfback will captain the Kiwis in a record 20th test as skipper in Friday night’s Oceania Cup match against the Kangaroos at WIN Stadium in Wollongong. Marshall and the Kiwis will then return to New Zealand for matches against the Great Britain Lions in Auckland on November 2 and Christchurch on November 9. The 26-year-old Whakatane-born standoff led the Kiwis for the first time when he stood in for an injured Nathan Cayless against England in Newcastle during the triumphant 2008 Rugby League World Cup campaign. When Cayless retired from international rugby league in early 2009, Marshall was given the captaincy of the New Zealand side. However, Marshall had a seven-year hiatus from the Kiwis, during which he was not selected for the side, and only returned to the fold in June this year.

Benji Marshall in action for the Kiwis. On Friday, Marshall will play his 29th test since his debut in 2005 will take him ahead of Gary Freeman for the most tests as Kiwi captain. They were level on 19 after Marshall was captain in the 10-18 loss to the Kangaroos in Townsville in October, 2012. Marshall did not play for the Kiwis in the World Cup 9s tournament that was won by the Kangaroos on Saturday.

Grayson falls at the final hurdle New Zealand men’s squash No.2 Campbell Grayson has been beaten in the final of the Chicago Open PSA 30 tournament yesterday morning. The former Aucklander now residing in Boston had won his semi-final the previous day over American eighth seed Shahjahan Khan 11-6, 11-8, 8-11, 11-5 in a lengthy match, however in the final he was well beaten by English second seed Adrian Waller in straight games. Left-handed Waller ranked 24th in the world won the contest 11-7, 11-4, 11-3. For Grayson at 35 in the world rankings it was his second final of the new season after his victory in the PSA 30 tournament at the Houston Open in August. The next tournament for Grayson will be the men’s world championships in Doha early next month. In the meantime Kiwi women’s world No.6 Joelle King is preparing for the women’s world champs in Cairo which starts at the end of this week. King faces Hong Kong player TszWing Tong in her first round match. Also this week, men’s world No.5 Paul Coll plays the Egyptian Open running alongside the women’s world champs.

Final act of the season Toafa Touli prepares to take on the Canterbury Maori defence during the final act of the rugby league season for Mid Canterbury players on Saturday. An invitational team made up of players from the Ashburton Barbarians and the Chertsey Oilers took on the Canterbury Maori side and came out on top 40-36 at Robilliard Park. It wasn’t an official representative match, but next year the season could finish with some official representative league, with a meeting likely to be held to discuss the prospect of fielding the first ever senior representative Mid Canterbury league team.

Manu Tuilagi holds the key to victory for England By Wynne Gray


hen Manu Tuilagi is fit and firing England have a much stronger shape to their backline threats. His talent has been apparent for some time but injuries clipped his international appearances to a handful in the last five years. So England tried a mix of remedies in case the midfield back wasn’t back to full noise for the World Cup. Some brought promise against lesser rivals while the public championed George Ford to bring his dazzle to the duties. Coach Eddie Jones was not blinded by those issues. He wanted an Owen Farrell, Tuilagi, Henry Slade axis and

when the medicos gave the allclear, the trio was restored for the sudden-death duel against the Wallabies. They brought size and pace. Farrell had the wit, goalkicking and leadership, Tuilagi the power to bend the gain line and antagonise defenders and Slade sniffed the breeze so well at centre where he also offered a left-foot kicking option. Where England had previously been a little clunky in their framework, they now had a better balance which spread the threats even deeper across the backline. Tuilagi was the key and his return to the paddock demanded constant attention and a minimal double teaming from the Wallabies. Whether he was used as a decoy or given the ball, Tuila-

gi caused the Aussies fits and allowed more time for Farrell, Slade and Co. to go about their business. Eventually, the Aussies wilted up front and in midfield as England booked their place for a semi-final showdown against an All Black side whose game went to another level as their accurate power, flair and skill dismembered Ireland. England favour their forwards where the tyros like Sam Underhill and Tom Curry have shone around the power of the restored Vunipola brothers, Kyle Sinckler, Jamie George, Courtney Lawes and the dynamic Maro Itoje. They are a rugged unit and the icing from the reworked backline meant they were too dynamic for the Wallabies. England don’t have the finesse

to unpick defences as the All Blacks do but they are equally dangerous with their direct running, power and support play topped by the speed on the flanks from Jonny May, Anthony Watson and Elliot Daly. If the semi-final stutters because of weather, errors, the referee’s rulings or TMO interventions, England will like their chances to examine if the All Blacks are the real deal in scrums and lineouts. When their pack goes well Ben Youngs directs and does the business at halfback for England but under pressure, he is not as adept at clearing possession with his passing or box kicks. The All Blacks are not immune either. Aaron Smith needed to sharpen the fundamentals in his

game and his pack gave him that platform against Ireland. No wonder Steve Hansen glowed in the evening warmth of the Tokyo victory. His pack had done the business against a team of tough nuts from Ireland, men who count their importance on dealing out domination up front, but were victims of the All Black onslaught. In an eerie pattern from the last World Cup, the All Blacks came out of two weeks hibernation and shifted gear as they dismissed Ireland from the tournament. England will be a much tougher challenge with the coaching bite from Eddie Jones and a squad riding the belief they can make amends for the epic disaster of the last tournament, where they failed to make the quarter-finals.

England major barrier By Patrick McKendry


he fear for many All Blacks fans before their team’s World Cup quarter-final against Ireland was that it all seemed a bit 2007. Instead, the accuracy and utter ruthlessness of the performance by Steve Hansen’s men suggests it’s all a bit 2015. It’s still relatively early days but beat England next Saturday and the title is as good as theirs again. Instead of falling to a nemesis like they did in Cardiff 12 years ago (France on that occasion), the All Blacks pulverised Ireland at Tokyo Stadium, just like they did against the Tricolours in Cardiff four years ago. Ireland had of course beaten the All Blacks twice in three years before this 46-14 win and they were supremely confident they could do it again. They were the No. 1 team in the world recently and fully expected to win their first World Cup knockout game here in Japan. But the All Blacks were privately sure they had moved on significantly from that last defeat in Dublin in November and they proved it with a near-complete performance which was stunning in its assertiveness. It was significant to hear Hansen say afterwards that the All Blacks don’t need to be reminded of their losses. They never forget them. In the end, a week after Typhoon Hagibis blew through, the Irish were hit by a perfect storm and the old ghosts were blown away. The thousands in green jerseys pouring out of the stadium and on to the train carriages afterwards seemed in reasonable spirits as the Irish generally are. They were certainly still in good voice.

Brodie Retallick is just one of the All Blacks’ strike weapons. But this defeat will take some getting over for the players. Their coach Joe Schmidt, who is now moving on, mentioned

that losses leave scars and this one won’t fade for many years. England will be difficult at Yokohama Stadium – probably

the most difficult challenge the All Blacks will face here. The All Blacks’ greatest challenge in the United Kingdom four years ago was that semi-final against the Springboks at Twickenham. They were on a precarious knife-edge in that match, with a masterclass in control from Dan Carter and a crucial defensive lineout steal from Sam Whitelock contributing to a 20-18 victory on a wet afternoon in south-west London. England showed this weekend against Australia that, a bit like the All Blacks themselves, they have the ability to bring a near-irresistible momentum to their attack. In Jonny May they also have a finisher who can punish the smallest mistake with utter ruthlessness; again, that’s similar to what the All Blacks do and in their case their back three of George Bridge, Beauden Barrett and Sevu Reece are in the form of their lives. “Dublin Down” read the cute headlines after halfback Aaron Smith’s two first-quarter tries put the pressure immediately on the Irish, and indeed Hansen is likely to double down against a big and bruising England side next Saturday. He’ll again put his faith in youthful enthusiasm combined with a playbook as sharp as a samurai sword. Negotiate a way through England and the World Cup threepeat is as good as in the bag for the All Blacks. The grand final week, should they make it, will quickly restore energy levels as will the chance to make history. A little fear could be helpful but it’s the opposition who should be afraid because this is a team taking their game to new levels and re-defining the game itself.

Cheika fires a big parting shot at Castle NZME Michael Cheika has taken a swipe at Rugby Australia’s Kiwi boss Raelene Castle as he confirmed he will be quitting as head coach after the Wallabies’ 40-16 quarter-final loss to England. After initially side-stepping questions about his future, Chieka stayed true to his stance that he would end his five-year tenure with Australia if they failed to win the World Cup. “I got asked the question in the press conference, you would’ve been there and listening, about what’s going to happen going forward and at the time I wasn’t keen to answer but I always knew the answer in my head, I just wanted to speak to my wife and

tell a few people up there about it,” Cheika said. “I put my chips in earlier in the year I told people no win, no play. “So, I’m the type of man who always going to back what he says and I knew from the final whistle but I just wanted to give it that little bit time to cool down, talk to my people and then make it clear.” Cheika has had a rocky relationship with the country’s rugby administration, having been subject to a review this time last year after a poor 2018 season which resulted in the sacking of attack coach Stephen Larkham. The review also brought on the appointment of Scott Johnson and Michael O’Connor as Wallabies selectors alongside Cheika,

something that didn’t sit well with the 52-year-old coach. The departing Cheika saved one parting shot for Castle and the Rugby Australia administration. “It’s no secret I’ve pretty much got no relationship with the CEO and not much with the chairman,” he said. “Scott’s a lovely bloke and I get on fine with him but I’m not really into that type of thing, I like to take that responsibility. “I found also that it changed my normal routine around things. “Not that my way’s definitely the right way, I’m definitely not saying that but that’s just the way I like to operate. “I’ve always prided myself on

not compromising my own values and what I want to do so I found that a little bit difficult at times. “It’s tough because you’re sort of betwixt and between, you so want to be a part of it and then sometimes it can’t always be how you wanted but that’s the way the role’s set up and I know my place within that structure. “So you either follow it, which I’ve tried to do over this last 12 months or you make the choice not to be in it.” The Wallabies could be set for more New Zealand flavour with Dave Rennie, the current coach of the Glasgow Warriors who has won two Super Rugby titles with the Chiefs, being tipped as the hot favourite to take over.

Boks belt brave, Brave Blossoms

South Africa are a suffocating boa constrictor who slowly squeezed the life out of Japan before eating them whole. At the end the tears flowed liberally both on and off the pitch as Japan’s players took their final bows; just one of the customs we have grown to love about this team and this country. Yu Tamura, the fly-half with the goatee which looks a bit like that funny haircut that Brazil’s Ronaldo had at the 2002 World Cup, only transposed to his chin, limped around with a broken rib, sobbing. Kotaro Matsushima and Kenki Fukuoka, Japan’s twin Ferraris on the wings, as South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus described them in the press conference afterwards, smiled ruefully. They have become global superstars at this World Cup – Matsushima in particular would be a canny signing for a European outfit looking for a presence in the Far East. The dreadlocked Shota Horie, he of the cult rock-paper-scissors video on social media, which saw him bashing his coach Jamie Joseph over the head with a plastic hammer, spoke of his pride at what the Brave Blossoms had achieved. It felt poignant, especially in the wake of the devastation Hagibis wrought upon the country. It would have been wonderful to see Japan continue the dream. South Africa, though, do not do sentiment. Erasmus’ hulking brood of manbots are a mauling, suffocating boa constrictor of a side who slowly squeeze the life out of you before eating you whole. Initially, it looked like the Springboks’ power game would be too much to handle but Japan were offered some respite when Tendai ‘The Beast’ Mtawarira committed a tip-tackle on a Japanese player. Referee Wayne Barnes immediately handed out a yellow card without consulting his TMO but there is a strong argument that it should have been red due to the reckless nature of the incident. We’ve seen this movie before. Four weeks ago, the Boks dominated the All Blacks at the set pieces and created a number of scoring chances during the early stages. Poor decision-making and worse handling, however, saw them spurning those opportunities and failing to take control of the contest. South Africa manhandled Japan at the scrum – even in the period during the first half when they were reduced to seven men after Beast Mtawarira was sent to the sin bin. They completed several telling steals at the lineout and appeared to average 15 to 20m with every one of their well-executed mauls. The Boks marched Japan some 40m downfield in the lead-up to Faf de Klerk’s try in the 66th minute. That maul was the play of the game – the moment where the Bok behemoths combined to form a unit that was more powerful and destructive than the sum of its parts.

event alongside four runners from the Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen stable, Chase Auckland, Thefixer and Spankem, and also Australian pacer Cruz Bromac, who is back in their stable. Purdon and Rasmussen pulled a surprise decision out of the hat when nominating the Cup-bound Ultimate Sniper and excitement machine, Self Assured for a lower grade race on the card – although the chances of that particular race going ahead seem slim considering the small numbers. They also left star trotter Oscar Bonavena out of the mix for the Ashburton Trotters’ Flying Mile and instead have targeted a lower-grade race with the potential superstar. That’s left an opening for one

of the other heavy-hitters of the open grade trotting ranks to step up and ask to be counted just two weeks out from races like the NZ Trotting Free For All and the Dominion Handicap. Leading contenders Sundees Son, Marcoola, Habibi Inta and Winterfell head the 12 nominations although there will also be plenty of eyes on the return to the track of Monbet. The former Dominion winner was out of sorts in two runs back from a spell as he battled fitness but has looked a lot sharper in two recent trial performances at Rangiora and appears to be heading in the right direction. 166 nominations were received for the feature meeting with fields set to be officially released early this evening. Monbet is expected to be back on the track at Ashburton.

Simon Shuker’s Code Cracker

Your Stars ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): While you can’t travel to happiness, some places are generally happier than others, increasing the odds of finding contentment. And the good feeling will probably land while in transit to such a place. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): You’ll put your head down and do your job, undistracted, undeterred, no matter who notices or doesn’t. This is why you are the biggest producer and will continue to be in demand. GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): When you’re a good person to the right people, it doesn’t feel like anything, because that’s the norm, just as it should be. To do right by the wrong people is harder, more important and never regrettable. CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): That thing you keep thinking about is not going away. Your mind will keep wrapping around and around it until the rest of you follows through with some action. There’s an experience that wants to be had. LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): You certainly don’t need anyone else to make your life interesting. You’re quite adept at doing that on your own. However, a charismatic character is coming into your world – fun ensues. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Thinking too much can be worse than negative thinking insomuch that it usually ends up negatively anyway and just takes longer to get there. What will stop the downward thought spiral? Action. LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): Not much good can come from overidentifying with ideas about yourself, opinions about the world or beliefs about your place in it. Take a breath, and take the sophisticated stance – everything is a “maybe.” SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): You’re keenly observant and so in the moment today. This is why you’re able to capture the beauty, get privy to the inside info, catch the jokes and invest with great timing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): You are working with others for a wondrous result, though, curiously, you don’t yet know who you’re working with and what the result will be. Keep doing your thing. Paths will soon converge. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): From where you’re sitting, borders are easier to make out than possibilities. That makes your job of seeing the possibilities and only the possibilities a little more challenging yet still utterly doable. AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): When everyone in the room is new and doesn’t know what to expect, congratulations. You’ve entered the ideal circumstance. There is nothing more exciting than a room full of strangers. PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): Those who are running from responsibility may be ill-informed about the joys of running toward it. Don’t take their dodge personally. Instead, lead by example.

Filipinos sport-fest a winner

Benji back in the black



Angus Jemmett sends a ball down to a St Bede’s 1st XI batsman at the Ashburton Domain on Saturday.


Tough start for AshColl Ashburton College’s 1st XI again found the going tough in their second game of the Canterbury 1st XI one day cricket competition at the Ashburton Domain on Saturday. Playing in the top flight of the competition this season, it’s been a rough start to the season for the Ashburton College boys, taking on two of the city’s top contenders in the first two weeks.

In week one they took on the Christchurch Boys’ High School 1st XI and lost by eight wickets, and in round two on Saturday Ashburton College hosted the St Bede’s College 1st XI, and it was the visitors who went home happy with a 104-run win for their efforts. Batting first, St Bede’s made it through to 195/8 off their 45 overs, with most of their bats-

men getting a start and Felix Bennie-Steel top-scoring with 32. Tom Middleton was the pick of the Ashburton College bowlers taking 3/32, while his brother Ben Middleton took 2/30. In reply, Ashburton College made it through to 21 before losing their first wicket, but that was quickly followed by their second, and from there they continued to fall at a steady rate.

St Bede’s bowler Tom Rossiter was on fire, taking 5/17 off his 7.2 overs, as the Ashburton batsmen struggled to even make it into double figures. Only one player managed to get there, and that was Liam Sullivan at number nine, who was the last man out for 39. He was bowled by Rossiter as his side fell to be all out for just 91 off 28.2 overs, well short of their target.

Next up, Ashburton College will go up against North West Youth Cricket at the Ashburton Domain at 10.30am on Saturday. North West have also lost their first two games of the 2019/20 season, going down to the same St Bede’s College team that Ashburton College played on Saturday by 55 runs in round one, and then losing by six wickets to the CBHS 2nd XI on Saturday.
