Teen to face murder trial in November

The teenager accused of murdering Ashburton mother Sina Nerisa Solomona will stand trial in November. The 16-year-old’s case was called at a pre-trial conference session in the High Court at Christchurch

yesterday before Justice Christian Whata. Two weeks have been allocated for the trial, which is scheduled to begin on November 4 in the High Court in Timaru. However, defence counsel Elizabeth Bulger said the

trial was likely to last just over a week. She asked for her client to be remanded in custody for another pre-trial conference on July 19 as she awaits further disclosure from police.

Ms Solomona, aged 22, was found dead in the doorway of her Cass Street home on December 15. She had finished a shift at 1am at CMP Canterbury, and visited a friend before arranging for her twin sister’s partner to drop her home

shortly before 2.30am. She was discovered fatally injured in a pool of blood at around 2.36am. The accused, then aged 15, was arrested and charged five days later. Ms Solomona is survived by her three-year-old daughter Kaira.

By Sam Morton Banning smoking on Ashburton’s main street would be strongly opposed by local tourism operators and hospitality businesses. Experience Mid Canterbury general manager Nigel Birt and Ashburton Trust chief executive Giles Beal have made their feelings known, reacting to the fierce debate to make Wellington’s city streets smokefree. Mr Birt, although strongly against smoking, insists any bylaws in Ashburton and national laws potentially passed in the future, needed to seriously consider the impact on tourism. “The (majority of) tourists that we do attract to New Zealand do happen to smoke and although I don’t support smoking, I think any councils looking at imposing bans need to keep their eye on the bigger picture. “There would certainly be greater implications that would follow the ban,” Mr Birt said. Earlier this week, the debate was fuelled further when a prominent university lecturer in Christchurch called for public places such as bus stops, train stations, ferry terminals, streets, urban centres, restaurants and even beaches to be declared smoke-free. Ashburton Trust chief executive Giles Beal described the request as “unrealistic” and felt strongly against the issue pointing out it was a matter of choice. Mr Beal said all licensed premises in Mid Canterbury were smoke free, but all patrons were allowed to go outside and smoke – providing it wasn’t out the front of the building. “Most smokers know the areas where they can smoke and in a nutshell, that’s anywhere outside,” he said. “I think on a personal level, banning smoking on the streets and in wide open spaces is going just one step too far against personal freedom and you have to wonder where will it stop.” Mr Beal said the Trust would likely oppose any proposal to ban

Giles Beal smoking around the pubs, restaurants and nightclub. Around 350 New Zealanders are killed by other people’s tobacco smoke each year and about one in five New Zealand adults currently smoke. Dr Mark Wallace-Bell, the lecturer against smoking, makes no apologies for the inconvenience on smokers and believes tobacco retailers are targeting and profiting from the poor. “We need to reduce the supply of tobacco and limiting the number of retail outlets will help. In addition any licensing should only be provided at a high cost to the retailer. This will limit the number of retailers that enter the market,” he said. “We need to make the tobacco industry pay more to clear up the mess that it makes. “Only with such hard hitting and progressive measures in place will we be able to achieve the ambitious goal of a smoke-free NZ by 2025,” Dr Wallace-Bell said. At present, the Ashburton District Council has by-laws in place banning smoking in children’s playgrounds, some sports fields and parks and as of 2011, the Ashburton Skate Park. A council spokesperson confirmed yesterday the council currently had no plans to impose any further bans – despite the issue hogging the national spotlight.

Emma Montgomery and Brady Thorpe make their grand entrance down the stairway into the Mount Hutt College Ball last night at the Methven Resort. Methven Resort morphed into Las Vegas last night, and the stars came out to play. The Mount Hutt College Ball kicked off at 7.45pm, when about

160 senior students turned out to make their grand entrance. About 20 students set to work early yesterday morning, glitzing up the venue in the Viva Las

Vegas theme selected for what is undoubtedly the highlight of the senior school’s social calendar. At the completion of the dinnerdance event, many of the young

revellers went on to attend an after-ball function at the Methven Rugby Club rooms – where the party continued until 3.30am. This was co-ordinated by the

college’s welfare committee in conjunction with the Ashburton Community Alcohol and Drugs Service. More ball photos, P8

Ban on legal highs may be fast tracked By Sam Morton The Government is pushing to fast track the ban on K2 and other legal highs and Rangitata MP Jo Goodhew says it can’t happen soon enough. Mrs Goodhew welcomed the announcement from Associate Minister of Health Peter Dunne yesterday, who has sought approval to fast track the Psychoactive Substance Bill in Parliament. “That is great news, it really is,”

she said. Mrs Goodhew’s strong views reflected her extreme dislike for the substances, as she refused to refer to the products as legal highs in an interview with the Guardian. “I won’t call them legal highs, because it leaves an impression that they are okay, when they really are not and we know them to be causing considerable harm,” she said. “It (synthetic cannabis) is doing some serious harm to people’s mental health living among our

communities and that worries me greatly. “I can’t wait for this bill to be passed and the faster that happens, the better,” Mrs Goodhew said. Earlier this month, K2 suppliers spoke out against the intense media scrutiny and voluntarily opted to stop supplying the product in New Zealand – at least until August. However, if Mr Dunne gets the support he needs from Parliament, the new bill, which could be in

effect as soon as July, will mean suppliers have to prove their products are safe before being allowed to distribute and sell them. It is a process Mrs Goodhew is confident will deter suppliers continuing business. She believes the new testing requirements will prove too difficult for suppliers to pass and believes the hefty cost associated with testing will not be viable for many. “I think it will be impossible for them to prove they are safe

and further to that, it will be significantly expensive to go through that process. “I think until the law is in place though, I am not comforted by any gestures the suppliers have made to date. The fact is, the products remain readily accessible and affordable in our communities for users to continue buying them and that is of real concern to the Government,” Mrs Goodhew said. The Psychoactive Substance Bill is expected to be in law by the end of July.

Mid Canty rides the flu jab bus By Sam Morton Mid Cantabrians are doing everything they can to protect the community from flu this winter, according to recent vaccination numbers. Medical centres throughout the district have been inundated with patients seeking vaccinations, and anecdotally more businesses have offered the jab to their employees. Nationally, district health boards

seems to be getting through too,” Dr Pink said. “The way Cantabrians have taken the initiative so far this year is great news for Canterbury communities which will be more flu-resilient this winter.” However, Dr Pink was in no mood for complacency. He urges residents, who have yet to do so, to book their flu shot as soon as possible. The vaccine contains three strains that wreaked havoc in the Northern Hemisphere over winter,

which resulted in the highest death rates from influenza and pneumonia in the US than in any winter, since 2003. “It’s not too late to develop the best possible protection before influenza starts to take hold in our community, this typically happens from June onwards,” he said. “While the uptake to date is encouraging, too many people are still at risk of contracting influenza and giving it to others. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect

yourself and the people around you. “Don’t delay,” Dr Pink said. Mid Canterbury GP spokesperson Rachel Norman said the uptake for vaccinations had been strong and surveillance for notable diseases and infections had began in Ashburton. So far, no significant cases of any illness had been reported in the district. The flu vaccine is available at all medical centres until the end of July.

A former Mid Canterbury girl has painted her way to recognition as one of the country’s top young artists. Rebecca Hawkes, 18, originally from Alford Forest, was recently given the Top Subject Scholarship at Government House for visual arts (painting) from her scholarship examination. Today, the former Rangi Ruru Girls’ School boarder is sitting a double degree in law and media at Wellington’s Victoria University, where she says her scholarship will help carve off the course fees she is paying through a student loan. Her scholarship means she will receive $2000 this year, and then another $2000 a year for the next three years if she keeps her grades up. “It was a very pleasant surprise I was pretty excited. I knew I had done quite well with my painting and thought I might get something but not this much,” the former Methven Primary pupil said. Rebecca, and her Rangi Ruru counterpart Phillippa Trevella, were the only two Christchurch pupils to feature among 45 premiere and top scholarship awards. Rebecca’s paintings were based on the portrayal of women in tattoo culture. She submitted that port-

Wilson: Be Methven’s voice Wilson said. “It’s been good, it’s something you can see tangible things happen really.” Mr Wilson is still attending community board meetings, and board members at their meeting this week decided to extend a public invitation to anyone considering standing for the board to attend their next meeting on July 1. Mr Wilson said it had been satisfying to see a number of projects come to fruition during his years on the board. The town centre public toilets had been upgraded, as had the Railway Reserve playground. Speed signs had been improved and included the establishment of a flashing sign near schools, a new road giving secondary access to Methven Primary School had been installed, as had recycling satellite bins. Not all projects the board had been involved with over the years had gone to plan, and one Mr Wilson worked particularly hard on, the Hobbs Road walkway, has had its fair share of difficulty. “It’s a highlight and a lowlight,” he said. The project has been delayed on and off by bad weather and unavailability of contractors, but Mr Wilson was pleased with the community support he had received for completing the project. Mr Wilson and his wife Fiona and three children are living in Halswell, Christchurch, and

Retiring Methven Community Board member Dave Wilson is encouraging residents to stand for election to the board. Mr Wilson will be winding up two-and-a-half terms of service in October when local body elections are held. He said as much as he had enjoyed his service on the board it was time for him to stand down, now that he and his family had moved from the town. Mr Wilson left his position as manager of Mt Hutt Ski Area last year and is now chief executive officer of Sicon Limited at Darfield. He said he wanted to get across to Methven residents that serving on the community board was enjoyable and worthwhile. “I encourage people who want to get involved, it’s not as scary as what people think.

Although she is not carrying on with painting at university, she still finds time away from study to produce her masterpieces. “Last year, if I think about it, I probably put quite a lot of time into it, but then again it didn’t feel like work at all.” She said her parents, both geologists living in Alford Forest, were proud of her effort, which was bolstered by claiming scholarship awards in media studies and English – each worth $500.

Mr Wilson said he missed Methven people. “It was a fantastic time,” he said of living in Methven and managing Mt Hutt for 11 years. “And we often reflect as a family about it, how fun it is, how energetic it is,” he said of Methven. He was enjoying working in the “challenging industry” of roading, demolition and maintenance contracting. “It’s certainly a challenging industry, battling against large multinational firms and sometimes one- man bands who are sometimes tendering for the same projects.” Sicon is among several contractors working in the residential red zone demolishing houses, and will soon demolish the Port Hills house where Mt Hutt-owned Rocky the superstar boulder is buried. Mr Wilson said while he no longer had a mountain vista out his office window and could no longer ski throughout the working day, there were some similarities between managing Sicon and managing Mt Hutt. Both companies had a similar number of staff, 250, although Sicon’s were employed throughout the year, and the business itself was “far more spread out”. “Sometimes the more you do it, the more you realise there’s a lot of synergies between people management, leadership requirements and financial responsibility.”

Inspectors having to work Saturdays By Sue Newman Saturday has become just another working day for building inspectors at the Ashburton District Council as they battle to cope with a growing workload. Inspection waiting times for most of this year have stretched out to five or six days because of the volume of work. During February and March the council’s inspection team had 811 individual inspections on its books. Council building services manager Michael Wong said the workload was high and some staff were now working Saturdays to keep on top of inspections. And while there is growing dissatisfaction in Christchurch among people involved in the city’s rebuild that red tape surrounding council consent requirements is hampering work that’s generally not the case in Ashburton says builder John Smitheram. “You know you have to count on a week now for inspections so you have to be organised and build

this into your job.” Gone are the days when a builder could ring the council and get an inspection done the next day and with around 13 inspections needed on a new house build, planning was key, he said. “The more houses you have on the go the more organised you have to be. You just build these inspections into your schedule now. We book three or four when we start a job and our builders work to those dates.” The council is also lagging behind in processing building consents, with just 90 cleared within the statutory timeframe of 20 working days in April. This, however was an improvement on the 80 per cent processed on time in both February and March. And while that might be frustrating for builders, most had just accepted that timeframe as the norm now, Mr Smitheram said. He believes the increasing detail required on consents would eventually change the way consents were handled, with these being lodged by architects and drafts-



Some tips for the weekend

men rather than builders. That would remove one step in the process, the builder, with the consenting process then being between designer and council, he said. In April 90 per cent of the 143 consents issued by the district council were issued within 20 working days, an improvement on the 80 per cent logged in both February and March. With one week still to run, May’s consent numbers have taken a significant dive with 117 issued to date against 190 for all of May 2012. The processing timeframe was acceptable, Mr Wong said and no consent work was being outsourced. To keep on top of the workload, an independent contractor came into council twice a week to work on consents, he said. Often the delays in processing times were not caused by overload at the council’s end, rather it was because about 40 per cent of consent applications had to go back to applicants for more information, Mr Wong said.

• A spot of Miss Saigon From the writers of Les Miserables, Miss Saigon is a stunning, intense love story loosely based on Madame Butterfly. Set during occupied Saigon and the Vietnam War in 1975, it is essentially a tragic tale of love between a young and innocent Vietnamese girl and a handsome, sensitive American GI who are cruelly separated by circumstances. Head along to see for yourself at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre from 7,30pm Friday, Saturday, Tuesday to Friday and a 2pm performance on Sunday. • Country Day It’s a big weekend of sport in Methven with the netball club having its annual country day and next door the majority of the Methven rugby teams are playing at home. Netball action is on court from 9am with rugby kicking off at 11.45am.

Sunday: • Dressage series The Ashburton Dressage Group has the first of its winter dressage series at the Ashburton Showgrounds from 9am.

Snowmaking finally kicks off By Susan Sandys Snowmaking finally got under way at Mt Hutt yesterday, a relief to ski area management who are aiming to open the ski area in three weeks. While the ski area’s snowmaking team has been ready and raring to go for the past week, they have had to wait for temperatures to fall. The ski area’s base was plumped up overnight on Wednesday, with eight centimetres of natural snow,

and has a depth of 10 to 25 centimetres. Manager James McKenzie said as snowmaking got under way yesterday afternoon that the manmade snow would be a great addition. “Thanks to a cool autumn with two snow falls, the mountain has maintained snow coverage but we needed to establish a good base at altitudes below 1800m ahead of our scheduled opening day,” said Mr McKenzie. A total of 87 guns are available for initial snowmaking on three

main runs including Highway 72, Broadway and Morning Glory, as well as around the base area and on International. This would ensure that a range of beginner to intermediate trails would be available for opening day, however the ski area is giving its opening date as June 15 “subject to conditions”. “We’ve had eight guns making snow in the base area today with two more making snow at the top of the quad chair,” Mr McKenzie said. Snowmaking also kicked off at

Coronet Peak in Queenstown yesterday. Twenty of Coronet Peak’s 213 snow guns automatically switched on as temperature and weather conditions were at optimal levels between 5am and 11am. Coronet Peak ski area manager Ross Copland said the start of snowmaking signalled the start of winter to many. “That’s when the buzz and excitement starts, and when businesses in Queenstown and Methven start to gear up for the season.”

• Musical interlude Combined choir of around 50 singers from University of Canterbury and Christchurch’s Schola Cantorum with some Gems of sacred music from 16th to 18th Centuries at St Paul’s Presbyterian starting at 2.30pm.

Out of town: • Musical seasons Instantly recognisable, The Four Seasons is Antonio Vivaldi’s most famous and well-loved work. Published in 1725, the four concertos were accompanied by sonnets, which were reputably written by the composer himself brilliantly uses music to depict the seasons. Held at the Theatre Royale in Timaru, from 5pm to 7pm.

Keeping warm a prerequisite for a healthy life W

hy do people in Mid Canterbury and the rest of the country put up with cold houses? Like many immigrants from North America and Europe, growing up in warm houses, I have been asking myself this question ever since arriving in the early 1990s. Since my arrival I have suffered, like most Kiwis, through New Zealand winters in sub-standard wooden houses, with a lack of heating and insulation, with the cold draught coming through the windows and floorboards. For more than two decades I

With low incomes, young and old are often consigned to live in poorly insulated rental properties and suffer through our winters. On the positive side, the research showed that three-quarters of us are starting to change our habits to conserve electricity, not to save the planet, but simply to save cash and to stay warm.

After 150 years of suffering, our building codes are finally catching up with the rest of the civilised world and demanding houses that suit our climate with full insulation and double glazing.

Until that day, continued focus on insulating older houses and better education on the importance of warm homes remains imperative.

MP checks out our town’s highs and lows By Sue Newman New Zealand First MP Denis O’Rourke was on tour yesterday, checking out Ashburton’s positives and its problems. In town as a guest of the Ashburton Citizens’ Association, Mr O’Rourke took a first-hand look at new projects and he checked out areas of concern, including the route for the second bridge across the Ashburton River and traffic issues through Tinwald and at the Walnut Avenue-State Highway One intersection. Mr O’Rourke is based in Christchurch. He is chairman of the Central Plains Water Trust and that meant he already had a good knowledge of the Ashburton District, he said. “There are only two NZ First MPs in the South Island and it’s important we’re out talking to people to see what we can do to help on local issues. We have people on each select committee so we can work through them, particularly with new legislation,” he said. For Ashburton, improving its share of the Financial Assistance Rate (FAR) funding for roads was vitally important, Mr O’Rourke said. With issues such as increasing fuel tax, it was important a close watch was kept on where the extra money went and to ensure some of this was diverted away from major roading work in Auckland and into areas with big roading networks such as Ashburton. He praised the work of Ashburton’s Water Zone committee saying they were well ahead of the field. Ashburton and Central Plains, however,

Sign finds home The new home of a boob on a Wellington street sign is no stranger to boobs of a different sort. Strip club Calendar Girls yesterday won a charity auction for the misspelled ‘Topless Tce’ sign, which turned heads on Thorndon’s Torless Terrace when it was erected earlier this month. Wellington City Council, which said the sign’s misspelling was a genuine mistake decided to auction it on TradeMe, with the proceeds going to the New

Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. The auction titillated more than 32,000 viewers before Calendar Girls placed the winning bid of $920 yesterday morning. The strip club later posted a photo of the sign on its Facebook page with the caption: “Couldn’t have gone to a better home!” While the auction was still running, Breast Cancer Foundation chief executive Van Henderson said bids had exceeded expectations. - APNZ

The Government has been slammed for its track record on child poverty and violence against women following a critical report from an international human rights watchdog. The Amnesty International Annual Report on the state of the world’s human rights highlighted New Zealand’s high levels of child poverty, violence against women and a proposed law affecting asylum-seekers. Auckland Action Against Poverty spokeswoman Sarah Thompson said the report’s findings came as no surprise. “It’s yet another report in a long line that highlights ongoing child poverty in New Zealand,” she said. “That child poverty remains high is of no surprise when our Government continues to ignore research-based solutions, choosing instead to punish the poor via welfare reforms which do nothing but intimidate, control and sanction beneficiaries.” Child Poverty Action Group codirector Mike O’Brien said there had been no significant Government response to the issue of child poverty. He said last week’s Budget had partly addressed some of the issues, such as home insulation and rheumatic fever, but there needed to be a broad and sustained response across health, education, housing and incomes. “There’s been a lot of talk, a lot of conversations ... but the Government has made absolutely no effective policy response to any of that, so far at least.” Women’s Refuge spokeswoman Kiri Hannifin said violence against women and children was a significant issue in New Zealand that rightly needed to be highlighted. “And the fact that international organisations are highlighting it should give the Government some pause ... It’s no surprise to us, we live with it every day.” The report noted that the UN’s Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women was concerned about the failure to collect adequate data, particularly in relation to violence against Maori, migrant and disabled women. Ms Hannifin said Women’s Refuge had formally asked the Government’s taskforce on family violence to respond to the UN’s recommendations, but it was yet to receive a response. “We’re still waiting. It is disappointing.” Prime Minister John Key, who had not yet seen the Amnesty International report, defended the Government’s record on at risk and

Sarah Thompson - no surprises in report vulnerable people. “The Government has and continues to do quite a lot for at risk young people - everything from supporting huge amounts going into accommodation supplements, Working For Families, and other measures that we took in the Budget, including putting $100 million into insulation for very low and at risk families. “We can always do more but we are a Government that stands by at risk people.” Mr Key also defended the Immigration Amendment (Mass Arrivals) Bill, which would allow for indefinite detention of asylumseekers arriving by boat in groups of more than 10 people. Amnesty International said the bill would jeopardise New Zealand’s previously good reputation for treatment of asylum seekers and refugees. Mr Key said it was important to update the legislation to ensure refugees could be processed properly and fairly. “It’s also important that we send a deterrent, because in the end we want people to come to New Zealand as genuine refugees - we support that and we take 750 people a year. “But we don’t want people coming illegally to New Zealand, or to send a message that we want to support people coming illegally.” A spokeswoman for Social Development Minister Paula Bennett said the Government had a strong record of targeting assistance to those most in need. It did so through housing, health and social development initiatives that focus on low income and vulnerable families and children. Women’s Affairs Minister Jo Goodhew said the Government’s taskforce on family violence would respond to progress on the UN’s recommendations in the next couple of months. She said the ministry had established a process where government agencies met every six months to review the progress on the recommendations. - APNZ

We have to demonstrate to the people of New Zealand that farming can and must be environmentally sustainable.” Farmers who could not or would not run their businesses in an environmentally sustainable way might need to consider leaving the

industry, Mr O’Rourke said. The spin-off from higher value production would come in more jobs, he said. He’s a big supporter of community groups such as the citizens’ association, saying they were a great vehicle for the people and keeping an eye on what councils were doing. “They’re a way of making sure the ordinary people are having a say and that they can make a difference. Without the support of local people nothing else will work.”

NZ meat freeze over By Adam Bennett China’s freeze on New Zealand meat imports is over, Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy says. “A resolution has been agreed which should see authorities clearing New Zealand meat exports to China from next week” Mr Guy said in a statement. “Chinese authorities have agreed they will begin releasing consignments under the name of the New Zealand Food Safety Authority.” Officials were working around the clock to reissue certificates for all the meat consignments held up at ports or on the water. “This is positive news for farmers and exporters after what has been a frustrating time.” Mr Guy said the Ministry for Primary Industries had now released

Officials have a responsibility to meat exporters and to all New Zealanders to get the basic details right.” Mr Guy said he was grateful to Chinese authorities for their willingness to work with New Zealand officials to find a way through the error. - APNZ

$100k TradeMe scam An online car dealer which placed thousands of fake bids on more than 500 of its own auctions was fined $42,000 yesterday. Counsel for The Auto Co, Donald Webster, told Auckland District Court its director, Masashi Umeoka, knew staff were “shill bidding” on $1 TradeMe reserve auctions, but did not know the scale of the behaviour or that it was illegal. In its victim impact statement, TradeMe described the offending as “almost industrial in its scale” and said it was “the most prolific and damaging campaign in [its] history”.

• Starting young

The Commerce Commission laid 13 charges against The Auto Co under the Fair Trading Act covering a period between June 27, 2011 and July 12 last year, when the company was removed from TradeMe. An investigation by the auction site found the company had placed more than 7000 fake bids over that time. At The Auto Co’s first appearance on March 5, the company pleaded guilty to all charges. The company also voluntarily paid $122,174 to TradeMe trust which has since been passed on to each of the 110 victims. -APNZ

Shares in Fisher & Paykel Healthcare jumped to their highest in more than two years as the maker of breathing masks and respirators said it expects to beat analyst estimates for 2014 profit after surpassing its own guidance for 2013. F&P Healthcare shares surged 5.9 per cent to $3.21, the highest since February 1, 2011, when it touched $3.22. The stock has surged 23 per cent so far this year. Profit is likely to be $85 million to $90 million in the year ending March 13, 2014, managing director Michael Daniell said yesterday. That’s more than the $79 million-to-$83 million range expected in a survey of seven

analysts by Merlin Consulting. F&P Healthcare, which competes with Resmed and Respironics, is boosting profit margins on record sales, higher-margin new products and lower costs from its plant in Mexico. “The share price rise reflects the guidance for 2014 being better than expectations,” said Rickey Ward, who manages equities at Tyndall Investment Management. “Next year looks like it’s better than forecast.” F&P Healthcare said 2013 profit rose 20 per cent to $77.1 million, ahead of its February guidance of about $75 million. The company boosted operating revenue to a record $556.3 million on strong demand for its respiratory systems and new masks to treat the condition obstructive sleep apnea.

“All of the new products we have invested in over the last 18 months do a better job and in return for that we are getting better margins,” Daniell said on a conference call. “We are pretty positive about the coming year.” The company expects operating revenue to rise to between $610 million to $630 million in 2014, Daniell said. The 2014 forecasts are based on the New Zealand dollar trading between 80 US cents and 85 US cents for the remainder of the year as about half its operating revenue is derived in US dollars. In constant currency terms, which the company uses to show its underlying performance excluding currency affects, operating revenue rose 11 pe rcent. Sales of respiratory products rose 15 per cent, while sales of devic-

es to treat obstructive sleep apnea increased 6 per cent. The annual revenue growth rate in constant currency terms should continue in the mid-teens, driven by new products and applications, Daniell said. Making an increased quantity and range of products at its plant in Mexico contributed to an improvement in gross margin to 55.3 per cent in 2013 from 53.2 per cent the year earlier, Daniell said. Removing the effects of currency volatility, gross margins are expected to expand 100 to 200 basis points a year as a result of new products, efficiencies and the Mexico plant, he said. F&P Healthcare expects to outlay $40 million in capital expenditure in 2014. That’s down from $62 mil-

lion in 2013 when it spent on new equipment to increase manufacturing capacity, new product tooling, replacement equipment and $33.6 million to complete a third building on its Auckland site. Research and development spending increased 9 per cent in 2013 and current new projects include masks, flow generators, humidifier systems and respiratory and acute care consumables. It spent 6 per cent more on selling as it expanded in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions. The company’s diluted earnings per share increased to 13.8 cents in 2013 from 11.7 cents the year earlier. It will pay a final dividend of 7 cents a share on July 5, unchanged from the year earlier.  – APNZ

Auckland fastest growing Auckland is the fastest growing region in the country thanks to its roaring housing market and a spike in construction activity, according to ASB’s latest regional economic scoreboard. Canterbury came in second place, with the Christchurch rebuild boosting construction activity and a ripple effect out into the wider regional economy, as evidenced by strong growth in retail sales. The scoreboard took the latest quarterly regional statistics and ranked the economic performance of New Zealand’s 16 regional economic areas. ASB said the big economic story of early 2013 was the drought that afflicted much of the country. “The drought has clearly had an impact

on the latest scoreboard and is particularly evident in soft consumer confidence in some of the country’s key pastoral regions, particularly Waikato and Northland.” Despite this, most activity indicators held up fairly well across the regions. “The longer summer and early timing of Easter did have a silver lining in the form of a higher than normal rate of tourist activity in March.” Wellington slipped in the rankings, with public sector cutbacks appearing to have dented household confidence. The West Coast also fell down the scoreboard, reflecting uncertainty in the mining sector, job losses, and the effects of the drought on its dairy sector.  – APNZ

No dividends from shift yet By Paul McBeth Rakon, which makes crystal oscillators used in smart phones and navigation systems, doesn’t expect dividends from its decision to shift its local manufacturing to China this year, but is promising investors will get a better steer on its fortunes in a July update. Last year’s decision to cut up to 60 local jobs and shift manufacturing to China won’t provide any boost to the company’s profit margins this year, with the $10 million improvement flagged in November likely to be further out, managing director Brent Robinson told a conference call. Rakon’s gross margin shrank to 23 per cent from 29 per cent a year earlier.

The Auckland-based company reported a loss of $32.8 million in the year ended March 31, wearing a $17.3 million impairment charge on its China-Timemaker and New Zealand units, with earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of $5.1 million, near the bottom end of a twice-downgraded forecast. Rakon’s board plans to slash its debt to $13.5 million by the end of March next year from the $36.1 million it has currently drawn on, as part of a rejigged balance sheet “properly aligned to market opportunities and solid profit growth,” it said. That will be revealed to investors in July, though because of confidentiality agreements Robinson said he couldn’t go into further detail does.  – APNZ

Mother confronts London terrorists A mother confronted the two men who hacked to death a man in London, asking them to hand over their weapons and warning them: “It is only you versus many people, you are going to lose”, it has been reported. Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48, told the Daily Telegraph that one of the attackers said to her that they wanted to start a war in London. The mother-of-two, a cub scout leader from Cornwall according to the report, went to the scene thinking it was an accident where she could use her first aid skills. “Then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel any pulse,” she said. “There was this black guy with a revolver and a kitchen knife, he had what looked like butcher’s tools and he had a little axe, to cut the bones, and two large knives, and he said ‘move off the body’. “So I thought ‘OK, I don’t know what is going on here’ and he was covered with blood. “I thought I had better start talking to him before he starts attacking somebody else. I thought these people usually have a message so I said, ‘what do you want?’ “I asked him if he did it and he said yes, and I said: ‘Why?’ And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British soldier and I said, really? And he said: ‘I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan, they have nothing to do there’.” Mrs Loyau-Kennett said the attacker seemed to be “in full control of his decisions and ready to do everything he wanted to do”. “I said, ‘Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose, what would you like to do?’ and he said: ‘I would like to stay and fight’.” Other eyewitnesses described seeing the “crazed” attackers “hacking” at their victim and posing for pictures before charging at police wielding meat cleavers. One onlooker, identified as James, said he saw two black men chopping at a man in his 20s like he was “a piece of meat”. He told LBC radio: “They were

The witness said the attackers then stood around, waving knives and a gun, asking people nearby to take pictures of them “as if they wanted to be on TV or something”. He said they were running up and down the road, urging people to take pictures. “In my opinion, they were waiting for the police to arrive to be shot by the police. That’s the only thing I can think,” he said. When armed police arrived 20 minutes later, “the man with the beanie hat, the tall guy, he charged at the police vehicle”, James said.  – PA

• Jolie’s aunt sick

The British government’s emergency committee met after two attackers butchered a British soldier in a daylight attack in London that raised fears terrorism had returned to the capital. Prime Minister David Cameron says there are strong indications it was an act of terrorism, and his top advisers will be examining the potential security implications of the attack, which took place near a military barracks in the Woolwich area of the city. Police confirmed the dead man was a serving soldier and said his identity will not be released yet at his family’s request. They said a post-mortem examination will be conducted later. British media say the victim was wearing a shirt in support of troops when he was killed. Security has been tightened at military barracks and authorities say they are updating their guidance for military personnel. Police in the county of Lincolnshire in eastern England said a property was being searched in connection to the attack in Woolwich. Police were also scouring the attack site for further clues. London Mayor Boris Johnson urged the people of the city to remain calm. Leaving the meeting of the emergency committee, Johnson appeared to indicate the attack was being seen as a one-off incident. “Everything I am hearing leads me to think that Londoners can go about their business in the normal way and we are going to bring the killers to justice,” he said. -AP

Babies among tornado dead Two babies are among the 24 fatalities in the tornado that tore through suburbs of Oklahoma City, officials say, as residents begin the daunting task of rebuilding their lives in the wake of the catastrophe. Ten children – including a pair of infants four and seven months old – perished in this week’s fierce twister that steamrolled entire neighbourhoods and two schools in the suburb of Moore. “Our hearts go out to all the people affected by this tragedy,” Amy Elliott of the state medical

examiner’s office said in an email detailing the revised breakdown of the official death toll. Previously, authorities had put the number of child fatalities at nine. The preliminary causes of death for the two dozen casualties included blunt force traumas, as well as asphyxiation, according to the office, which also released some of their names. Some 237 people were injured by the hurricane-strength storm, Andy Oden, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Department of

Emergency Management, said. It was not immediately clear if anyone remains unaccounted for. As rescue efforts wound down, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was headed to Moore yesterday to “ensure that first responders are receiving the assistance they need,” a statement from her office said. For residents whose lives were turned upside down, relief about having survived turned to heartbreak as the extent of the disaster slowly sunk in.   – AFP

A hairball as big as a baby It’s not unusual for a cat to get a hairball, but a 180-kilogram tiger needed help from veterinary surgeons when he couldn’t hack up a soccer ball-sized hairball by himself. The 17-year-old tiger named Ty underwent the procedure yesterday at a veterinary centre in the Tampa Bay area community of Clearwater. Doctors said in a statement that they safely removed the 1.8kg obstruction from Ty’s

stomach. The tiger, which is cared for by Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation in Florida, was brought to veterinarians after not eating for nearly two weeks. Doctors said they detected the hairball using a scope with a camera. Vernon Yates, whose nonprofit group regularly assists law enforcement agencies with seized animals, says he’s thankful the hairball was removed and Ty is doing fine.   – AP

Forbes: The most powerful women German Chancellor Angela Merkel has topped Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most powerful women for the third consecutive year, followed by Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff, the magazine says. They were followed by Melinda Gates - who co-chairs the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with her billionaire philanthropist husband - US First Lady Michelle Obama and former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton. Three Australian women made it to the list. Australia’s richest woman Gina Rinehart, the executive chairman of Hancock Prospecting, was the highest placed at No. 16 while Prime Minister Julia Gillard was No. 28. Westpac chief executive Gail Kelly was No. 62. The annual list includes influential women in global politics, business, media, entertainment, technology and not-for-profits, ranking them by “money, media presence and impact”, according to the business magazine. “The rise of personal brands and entrepreneurial endeavours among this year’s Power Women are exciting trends as we mark our 10th year of publishing the list,” said Moira Forbes, president and publisher of ForbesWoman, on Wednesday. “From Singapore to Saudi

Angela Merkel Arabia, the United Kingdom to the United States and beyond, the 100 influential women on our list are making an indelible and lasting impact on the world we live in,” she said in a statement. Forbes has named Merkel the most powerful woman eight out of the 10 years the list has existed. High-ranking businesswomen on the list include HewlettPackard CEO Meg Whitman (No. 15), as well as Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg (No. 6) and Yahoo! chief executive Marissa Mayer (No. 32). The 24 CEOs on the list lead

firms with a combined $US893 billion ($A915.24 billion) in 2012 revenues, while the eight heads of state run countries with a combined GDP of $US9.9 trillion, the magazine said. Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce and Angelina Jolie are also on the list. Editors ranked the talk show titan at number 13 and the Crazy in Love superstar at 17 – making them the only two entertainers to crack the top 20. Oscar winner and United Nations Ambassador Jolie, who recently went public with her brave double mastectomy story, comes in at number 37 on the new list, a spot ahead of actress Sofia Vergara, and three places in front of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II at 40. Other stars who earned mentions include Vogue editor Anna Wintour (41), Lady Gaga (45), Ellen DeGeneres (51) and Shakira (52), while Harry Potter author JK Rowling and supermodel Gisele Bundchen scraped in at 93 and 95, respectively. In another measure of influence, the 100 women on the 2013 list have a combined Twitter following of over 153 million, Forbes said. The full list can be viewed at -women  – AFP/WENN

LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) The Moon goes face to face with Mars. This is not a longlasting aspect or influence, but something related to a career, emotional or family issue may prove hard to balance. What you can do is try to deflect any strains by looking to tap into your social world. If this has become stilted, it’s a good time to reach out and reconnect.

VIRGO (Aug 24th Sep 23rd) Learning to take greater responsibility for what we think and say is probably a lifelong process, but with Saturn edging you through this sector for the next two years, you may find that some of your attitudes and utterances can come sharply into focus. Yet, if you choose what you say carefully, you could impress someone today.

LIBRA (Sep 24th Oct 23rd) Do you splash out or rein in? Temptation may call today, so be ready for this. If you do spend money, invest it in things which help to give you a new perspective. Books, DVDs and aids linked to learning, travel, understanding a new language or a holiday can all resonate. You may even speculate to accumulate.

Angelina Jolie had extra reason to undergo a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer – her aunt is currently battling the disease. The Salt star underwent the preventative surgery in February after she tested positive for the “faulty” BRCA1 gene, which increases a woman’s likelihood of contracting breast and ovarian cancer, the latter of which claimed the life of her mother Marcheline Bertrand in 2007. Jolie recently admitted she completed the procedure out of fear of following in her mum’s footsteps, and now Bertrand’s younger sister, Debra Martin, reveals she too pushed the actress to take action after she was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time.  – WENN

• Bolder dies Trevor Bolder, who was bass guitarist in two bands, Uriah Heep and David Bowie’s Spiders From Mars, has died at the age of 62 following a battle with cancer. Bolder joined the British rock star’s backing group in 1971, appearing on classic albums including Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane. “Trevor was a wonderful musician and a major inspiration for whichever band he was working with. But he was foremostly a tremendous guy, a great man,” Bowie said. Bolder went on to join Uriah Heep in 1976 and only stopped playing with the hard rock band a few months ago because of his health. – AFP

• 12 killed in brothel Unknown gunmen have shot dead at least seven women and five men at a brothel in Baghdad, security and medical officials say. The attack took place in the capital’s eastern area of Zayouna, where a number of brothels are located. An interior ministry official said the gunmen burst into the establishment yesterday and opened fire. Both prostitution and alcohol are prohibited by Islam, the religion of the vast majority of Iraq’s population. Zayouna is an upmarket, mixed district of Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims where a number of brothels opened in the relatively quiet recent years. – AFP

• Boston connection? An FBI agent has fatally shot a Florida man who allegedly had ties to one of the Boston bombings suspects, US media reported. Ibragim Todashev, 27, was shot in the city of Orlando, Florida, according to the Orlando Sentinel newspaper. Todashev became violent while being interviewed by the FBI, NBC News reported. Todashev was reported to be a friend of deceased Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whom he knew through their shared hobby of mixed martial-arts fighting. The FBI, which has so far neither released the name of the suspect who was shot, nor confirmed a possible connection to the Boston bombing suspects, has said it would release details about the inci– AFP dent last night.

CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) Your imagination can be both an asset and a challenge at this time. You may think this sounds contradictory but in terms of an appreciation for stories, film, art, spirituality and even enjoying your dreams, this can be a very special time. What may be less helpful is if you let more negative emotions and subjectivity take root.


Phone Enquiries: 308 6173 Online Enquiries:

SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) You might find yourself feeling a bit tongue-tied today, or being completely the opposite, quite assertive. Your sex appeal is very high. This can elevate your confidence but also see you less content in an ongoing tie. This can be one of those days when external possibilities seem tempting. But is the grass always greener?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) You might feel briefly unsettled today. Try not to let this spoil what are otherwise very promising possibilities, especially around interacting with other people. You can find yourself cultivating some very good new friendships or enjoying the exchanges you have with those folk you already know. You may even have a flirty exchange.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) Your affections may be blunted today, even if for a short period. If you are not currently dating you may just feel a bit below par when it comes to your normal self. Yet this can push you to do something virtuous and this is one of those times when if you do, some unexpected but pleasant consequences can unfold.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) You might have to contend with people today who put demands on you just at a time when you are feeling at your sparkiest best. Keep the faith Aquarius, because hopefully this will not be a long-lasting bind and the chances are you have got some plans cooking away for an upbeat and entertaining weekend. Your sense of fun can be high.


PISCES (Feb 20th Mar 20th) Beautifying your home or garden can appeal to you. If your abode or outside space are already just as you want, you may decide to spend some time in your environs enjoying what you have created. Some very positive news about your family life or a deeply-held affection can emerge before the end of this month.

Does something not smell right? Your septic may need a service T

can be pumped out periodically, saving embarrassing overflowing issues, and protecting your septic investment for many years to come.

Thanks to the locally owned and operated team at Allen’s Liquid Waste Disposal, a regular septic maintenance programme can keep your flushing harmonious, and your waste underground.

Are you buying or selling a home with a septic system? It is highly recommended that you do some investigating to find out details about the system before you sign on the dotted line. Because of the high costs associated with installing a new system and the complexity of the process in general, prospective homeowners have much to risk when they neglect to evaluate a system before the purchase.

hanks to the simple push of a button, home liquid waste remains out of sight and out of mind. What happens to our one’s and two’s after the flush doesn’t often come into our mind until something goes wrong, and by that stage the clean-up is often messy and expensive.

Regular pumping and maintenance of a septic tank is important to ensure that an effective system remains at its best operating potential. As a septic system is used and abused, solids accumulate in the tank while water passes through and exits into the soil. As sludge layers build-up in the tank over time, the solids have less settling capacity and liquids have issues passing through and out of the system, causing the tank to fill and overflow. This inevitable process may likely clog the distribution lines to the absorption area. Even with a healthy microbial ecosystem breaking down the layer of sludge, a well-functioning septic system and good drain field, the sludge and scum layers in your tank will build up over time. Avoiding the issue will only make matters worse, and can create serious health hazards to you and your family, as well as expensive and often irreversible damage which may result in the entire septic system needing to be replaced. By maintaining your septic levels through a regular pumping schedule offered by Allen’s, the sludge and scum

Allen’s can drain an existing septic system and perform an inspection check on the health of your tank. Not only will you have peace of mind that the tank is structurally sound, Allen’s can also determine the size of the tank, the type of system it is, and based on home occupancy and other factors such as whether there is a waste disposal unit installed in the kitchen, can determine a maintenance schedule to best suit your individual living. For example, a single person with a large tank would not need their tank emptied as often as a large family with a smaller tank. Allen’s operate a fleet of two vacuum tanker trucks as well as a hydro excavation truck to allow their expert waste removal specialists to undertake collections in a range of situations from household domestic in town, to rural farm, to large commercial tanks and dairy farm effluent ponds. Allen’s has recently purchased some of the most advanced jetting equipment within the industry, giving their business a wide range of line-opening capabilities. This equipment is highly effective against

any build-ups or blockages you may be experiencing in the lines at your home or business. In addition, jetting is great preventative maintenance for in-ground systems, ensuring lines are clear of debris, allowing liquid to pass through more effectively and reducing the chance of future blockages and build-up occurring. Flexibility in scheduling appointments is an important factor within the liquid waste business, as many calls are a matter of urgency. Allen’s strive to accommodate their clients’ needs within a 24 hour response period for emergency situations. They also pride themselves on providing a friendly and professional service, as customer service is a top priority for their team. If you notice an unpleasant odour coming from your tank area or through drain holes close to your home, or if a drain doesn’t appear to be draining at its normal rate, give Allen’s Liquid Waste Disposal a call. One of their waste removal technicians will quickly evaluate the problem and take the necessary steps to ensure your water waste is flowing efficiently again. Allen’s Liquid Waste Disposal are a compliant liquid waste carrier under liquid and hazardous waste legislation requirements and carry the necessary qualifications for working safely within their fields of expertise. As the only locally owned and operated liquid waste removal specialists in Mid Canterbury, save time and money with their fast and reliable service, with the confidence that when you pick up the phone, you will be speaking with a local who can tend to your need quickly.

Providing a homestay away from home O

or all over the world can easily find homely accommodation, where they are welcomed into our community and given the opportunity to start a new life in Mid Canterbury.

ne of the scarier aspects of moving to a new town is arranging where you are going to live, especially if you are moving to the other side of the world. The Christchurch earthquakes have made finding local accommodation difficult for many visitors and new migrants, as often rental listings are scarce, or well beyond the means of a young backpacker working their way around the country. However the introduction of new people into the district to fill gaps in the dairy and agriculture sectors is crucial to the financial growth and development of our province. Loren and Cory Levy have established a local business to address this need, to provide accommodation in both short and long term circumstances, throughout the district, to suit every budget and situation. And it is providing many local families with additional income to supplement their lifestyle.

Whether it is a small family looking for a couple of rooms to rent while they get themselves established in the community, a young backpacker looking for a furnished room to call home for a few months or a new migrant with work but nowhere to live, Homestay Me will offer them a range of living options that will best suit both their lifestyle, and the lifestyle of those they are going to live with.

The business idea is called Homestay Me, where people from within New Zealand,

From a chic townhouse close to the centre of Ashburton, to a country homestead close to the ocean, Homestay Me provide a range of accommodation options to those looking for short term and long term accommodation. Depending on the facilities provided at the home, as well as the quality of furnishings provided, Homestay Me have a selection of price options available, to suit the budgets of a part-time worker through

to an executive couple. Their friendly, personalised service make finding the right living arrangements easy and stress free, one less thing for them to worry about as they make the transition to a new lifestyle amongst our community. Options range from providing simple arrangements such as just a bed, to providing optional extras such as breakfast, laundry services, internet access and more depending on the needs of the people looking for accommodation and what the accommodation providers are willing to offer. This will offer visitors to the area another choice to consider when conventional choices such as a motel or campervan is too expensive or too impersonal for the needs of the traveler. While Homestay Me do have a number of properties to select from, they anticipate that as demand grows they will soon require more rooms to offer our travelling friends. If you have a spare room and are looking to meet some new and interesting people, and help new people feel welcomed within

our community, contact Loren and Cory to find out just how much extra per week you could bring into your household, just from renting out one of your rooms. All you need to be able to offer is a pleasant living environment, a furnished room and a friendly personality to make our newest community members feel welcome. More than one room available for rent? Even better! The more rooms you have to offer, the more money you can make and the better the service that Homestay Me can provide. It’s an easy way to help off-set the cost of your mortgage, or a fast-tracked way to save for that tropical holiday you deserve. Often having more than one new person in the home makes the situation more comfortable for all concerned, as people open up more freely when there is someone else in the home under similar circumstances. To discuss the finer details of becoming a Homestay Me host, contact Loren on 021 230 3274. That lonely old spare room may be worth more than you think.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 24, 2013


Hayden’s Tour in doubt By Jonathan Leask Ashburton cyclist Hayden Roulston has pulled out of the Giro d’Italia, before the start of the 17th stage. Roulston had been struggling with respiratory problems and the re-occurrence of an ear infection over the gruelling tour with Roulston’s RadioShack-Leopard Team director JosĂŠ Azevedo suggesting that the effects finally took their toll. “Hayden felt really bad this morning. “He has some respiratory problems plus an ear infection that has been bothering him for some number of days now.â€? Roulston was forced to pull out of the Milan San Remo in March after getting close to a hypothermic state in the zero degree conditions and suffered the after effects over

his next few races. Over a month on he had been riding in the cold conditions through the mountain stages over the past week and his health deteriorated to the point of having to pull out of the tour. The team said Roulston will rest up and continue his racing programme in the near future, but his chances at a ride on the Tour de France may have taken a hit. The New Zealand road champion had been 131st on the general classification but leaves his RadioShack Leopard team-mates and fellow Kiwi riders George Bennett and Jesse Sergent to fly the flag on the tour. Roulston withdrawal means there are just 172 riders left from the initial 207. Mattia Gavazzi, the slowest man in the peloton and the man who came in last in the past nine stages was booted out for drafting behind the team cars.

The 17th stage began in Caravaggio and ended in Vicenza after 214km. An early breakaway of four stayed away until the final kicker with 20km to go, where Italian Giovanni Visconti mounted an attack and stayed clear to the finish to win his second stage in four days. There was no change on the General Classification with Italian Vincenzo Nibali still safely in the pink jersey after more than 73-hours of riding, leading Australian Cadel Evans by 1:26 with four stages to ride. RadioShack’s lead rider Robert Kiserlovski remained in 14th but the team is still hopeful of achieving a top 10 finish. Weather may change the route again for the upcoming mountain stages tonight and Saturday with deep snow still blocking some of the passages, but the final time trial overnight was an uphill climb from Mori to Polsa at 20.6km.

Hayden Roulston: Respiratory problems as well as an ear infection

Henry learning from mistakes By Michael Brown Images of Ben Henry smiling after the Warriors’ record 62-6 defeat to the Panthers have been replayed on TV screens countless times since the weekend, but not as often as they have run through Henry’s mind. Henry was one of a handful of players seen smiling, laughing and joking with Penrith players just seconds after their humiliating defeat last Saturday night. It angered fans and cast the club in an extremely poor light. A lot of damage was done in the 80 minutes of that match, but arguably even more in the 80 seconds afterwards. Henry was unaware of the impact of those scenes until the 21-year-old centre returned to New Zealand the following day and walked into the furore. “It wasn’t until the day after that I got back here that I saw my face in the newspaper smiling,� Henry said. “It is never my intention to not care. In the Penrith team there are a lot of players that I used to play with. I was catching up with

one of them and I was smiling. “I apologise for that. It was never my intention to not care. “It brought more negativity to the club and that’s the last thing I want as a player. “To have those 80 seconds back ... I would just keep to myself. But what’s done is done and I just have to learn from my mistakes.� The Warriors as a team made a number of those last weekend in one of their most inept performances in the club’s history -it was a record defeat and the most points they have conceded in a game - and the players met as a group to talk about how they might go about putting things right. A lot of words have been spoken inside and outside the club and halfback Shaun Johnson labelled the discussions “very honest�. “We were gutted with how we performed,� said Henry, who is normally seen as a dependable player but who missed two tackles against Penrith that led directly to tries. “We did it to ourselves. We shot ourselves in the foot. “It’s disappointing for our fans. We just want to show them this week that they mean something

and playing footy means something to us by going out and getting a win.� It won’t be easy against a Newcastle side who will be wary of the rebound effect. The Knights were hammered 44-14 by Canberra a fortnight ago but responded with a commanding 44-8 defeat of a resurgent Bulldogs side last weekend. Coach Matt Elliott named an extended seven-match bench for the match but was expected to narrow that down after last night’s training. Back-rower Todd Lowrie (ribs) is an extremely unlikely starter and doubts remain around whether centre Dane Nielsen (ribs) and fullback Kevin Locke (back) will be fit to play. The players seem aware of the pressure Elliott is under and determined to put things right on Sunday but only actions will count. “Hopefully you are going to see 17 blokes giving it their all, trying to get back some dignity and respect from our fans and families,� Henry said. “And hopefully get a win.� It might even put a smile on the - APNZ faces of some fans.

• Taurua stepping down Long-serving Magic coach Noeline Taurua has announced she will step aside from the franchise at the end of the trans-Tasman league season. Under Taurua’s stewardship, the Magic have produced an enviable record of being the only team to make the playoffs every year during the semi-professional era of the ANZ Championship, the only team to make three grand finals and New Zealand’s only team to - NZH win the competition.

• Cadel to be leader The boss of Cadel Evans’ BMC team insists the Australian cycling star will be their sole team leader at the Tour de France. BMC president Jim Ochowicz has moved to end speculation about Evans and the team’s rising American star Tejay van Garderen. Ochowicz said it was clear that Evans would be their No.1 rider in the three-week Tour, which starts on June 29. He pointed to the Victorian’s outstanding Giro d’Italia, where Evans remains a title contender - AAP in second overall.

• Doggies on the rise Former Canterbury captain Andrew Ryan says the Bulldogs are on their way to recapturing the stunning form of last year and that their shock thrashing at the hands of Newcastle last weekend is likely to prove an aberration. On the back of a lift in form of several key players, including Ben Barba, and the return of ball-playing forwards James Graham and Sam Kasiano, the Bulldogs had enjoyed three successive wins before last Sunday’s 44-8 thrashing to the Knights. The Bulldogs meet Brisbane tonight in round 11 of NRL action with both sides keen for a win ahead of the tricky State of Origin period. - AAP

Ben Henry: Can’t see funny side

Fleming or Vettori? By Andrew Alderson Here’s a topic when a long evening of pub contemplation beckons ... Who has contributed more to New Zealand test cricket: Stephen Fleming or Daniel Vettori? The natural fence sitting - but probably correct - answer is to say they have added equally in their own estimable ways. This is not about one-upmanship, it is about debate. The topic is valid tonight with Vettori on the verge of passing Fleming as the most capped New Zealand test player. Both have played 111 tests (although Vettori is attributed one extra with his 2005 World XI appearance against Australia in Sydney). Performance Fleming: Left-handed elegance personified, especially when caressing a cover drive. Ended up playing the final test innings of his career to float in the 40-plus average club. Known for his buckethands in the slips; ranks sixth on the alltime test aggregate list with 171. Vettori: Has any New Zealand

bowler since Sir Richard been capable of landing a ball as accurately? Then he started bolstering the country’s prowess with his batting. Once all-rounder status was conferred, rumour had him driving the team bus too, such was his dominance. Captaincy Fleming: Record compares favourably against most - 80 tests, 28 wins, 27 losses, 25 draws. Only Geoff Howarth had a better percentage win rate. Revered worldwide for tactical and strategic nous after taking over aged 23. Has translated those skills to the coaching realm with the Chennai Super Kings. Vettori: The obvious successor but had nowhere near the impact. Lacked the cattle but his intelligence and immersion in the game remain undisputed. Burdened with too much responsibility there was never a hint of complaint about such awkward circumstances. Triumph Fleming: Take your pick. Leading New Zealand to a 2-1 test victory in England in 1999, including the sole victory at Lord’s; battling out

Stephen Fleming and Dan Vettori a 0-0 draw with Australia at the height of their powers in 200102; or negotiating the so-called players’ strike successfully later that year. Vettori: Adjusting to tests at such a young age without flinching. Always looked like he belonged, despite playing just two first-class matches before debuting against England. Became just the second player behind Kapil Dev to get more than 4000 test runs and 300 wickets. Disaster Fleming: Conversion rate. Nine centuries from 46 fifties for a rate of 16.36 per cent never did his batting justice, especially when he made a New Zealand record three double centuries.

Vettori: The injuries of the last few seasons and his inability to create as much purchase on the ball. Has taken just five wickets in as many tests with limited turn. Legacy Fleming: His business career. Pondering tactical decisions more than using his bat has led to quality business investments, a prime coaching gig and the reassurance there is life after cricket, particularly in India. No one will forget his transformation into an astute captain but more importantly he avoided becoming a cricketing savant. Vettori: Remarkably New Zealand used just six other specialist spinners during his reign to complement or stand in while he recovered from injury. Add his batting and you have an icon of the New Zealand game whose whole working life has been dedicated to cricket. When his career ends hopefully his skills are broad enough to avoid being typecast. Verdict: the simple summation comes in a sentence. Vettori is the better cricketer; Fleming is the better captain.  - HOS

• Serena faces demons

Kiwi fighters on centre stage

If momentum counts for everything in tennis, nothing will stop Serena Williams from winning the French Open for just the second time in her career in Paris. At 31, the superstar of the women’s game is on an unprecedented winning run going in to the consecration of the claycourt season at Roland Garros. Four straight tournament wins and 22 matches in all represents the best unbeaten streak of her career. And yet there are demons to be confronted in the city she says is her favourite place in the world. Namely 11 previous campaigns and just the one championship win - in 2002 - as the first step on the road to her famous “Serena Slam�.-AFP

By Daniel Richardson Mixed martial arts already has a cult following in New Zealand and it could blast in to the front of people’s minds this weekend. Kiwis Mark Hunt and James Te Huna are both on the UFC 160 card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and the Sunday show shapes as a blockbuster. Heavyweight Hunt is in the co-main event against Brazilian Junior dos Santos, with the winner potentially earning a world title fight, while Te Huna meets dangerous light heavyweight prospect Glover Teixeira, who hasn’t lost a fight since 2005 and is 3-0 in the UFC. Both New Zealanders are fill-ins with Hunt replacing Alistair Overeem, while Te Huna, 31, is stepping in for American Ryan Bader. Both New Zealanders also head in to the weekend as underdogs with the

Mark Hunt: Chance to beat a champion bookmakers in Vegas preferring their respective opponents. Hunt, the ninth-ranked heavyweight in the UFC, is on a four-fight winning streak and has produced a couple of eye-popping knockouts during the past two years. “It’s an opportunity,� Hunt says of his bout against the 15-2 dos Santos. “Junior was the world champion and as a fighter to get the chance to beat the former world champion, to get closer to

where I want to be is great, what else could I ask for? “I don’t want to wait 10 years, I’m an old man right now. So it’s just moving along as a fighter. I’ve been fighting for a long time and the quicker I get my chance to fight for the title the better, so it’s a good opportunity.� The 39-year-old Hunt, who is 9-7 for his career and 4-1 in the UFC, doesn’t have youth on his side but he and dos Santos are regarded as two of the most powerful strikers in the division. Te Huna, who has won 10 of his past 11 fights and is 5-1 in the UFC, has connected with more than 50 per cent of his significant strikes during his past three bouts but hasn’t recorded a submission victory since 2004. His meeting with Teixeira is likely to be a clash of styles given the Brazilian’s strong jiu-jitsu background and takedown ability. If the fight stays up, Te Huna is more than a puncher’s chance against a strong wrestler like Teixeira. - APNZ

Movie Greats, 8.30pm The inimitable imitator, satirist and agitator Sacha Baron Cohen (below) followed his 2006 hit Borat with more of the same prejudicebaiting humour in this merciless mockumentary. The wide-eyed foreigner with a skewed take on American culture this time is the über-fabulous, funky fashionista Brüno, determined to become “the biggest Austrian superstar since Hitler”. Obviously, nothing is sacred to Baron Cohen as he shocks the unwitting victims of his comedy.

ASHBURTON GUARDIAN, Friday, May 24, 2013


The Combined Country Cup rugby competition has reached the business end. Tomorrow’s final matches of the round will decide who is in the top eight and who they will meet in the quarter-finals on June 8. The situation in section one is sorted in terms of the top four, but not their order. Rakaia currently sits on top two points in front of defending champions Southbridge and Oxford with Saracens assured of fourth on 21. Rakaia needs to beat Burnham to earn home field advantage in the playoffs, but the getting the better of the army boys can be a case of which Burnham turns up. “We are after the four points and finishing top, and playing well in the process would be good too,” Rakaia coach Wayne Foxcroft said. “We know what we need to do and that’s win. If we get tipped up we could end up third. “Burnham can be tricky but if we turn up with our A game we should be righty. “It’s all about attitude.” The pressure will be on Rakaia to deliver the four points as Southbridge should be too strong for a struggling West Melton and the same can be said of Oxford’s trek to Kaiapoi. Saracens have the bye but already have fourth place sewn up, despite

being tipped up last week by Methven. Coming off a third consecutive win, Methven will be full of confidence to host bottom of the table Dunsandel-Irwell. Over in section two things aren’t so certain. Ashley and Lincoln square off for top-of-the-table honours, with current leaders Ashley at home putting their unbeaten run on the line. Celtic cling to fourth and need a bonus point win over a poor-performing Prebbleton to remain there, but are at risk of being overtaken by Darfield - who play Southern, or Glenmark - who play Waihora if Prebbleton were to conjure up an upset. However, the Celts delivered a strong showing against Ashley last weekend to suggest they will overpower Preb-bleton and make the Combined Country playoffs for the first time under its new format, having not been in the top eight since North Canterbury joined. If Rakaia are successful in their bid to finish top, Celtic could be making a trip out to Rakaia in the quarter-finals if they can finish in fourth. Southern can do Celtic a favour if they can claim their third straight win taking on Darfield, while Glenmark play host to the third placed Waihora. Hampstead are out of the playoff equation but should finish the round robin on a high hosting the winless Ohoka.

Top four spots up for grabs By Jonathan Leask

Mid Canterbury Senior B rugby’s Michael Duff Memorial has three potential landing spots heading into tomorrow’s final matches of round one. Southern’s unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Collegiate last weekend to be allsquare on 25 points with Tinwald and Collegiate are also in the running on 23. Southern needs a bonus point win over Celtic to stay on top while Tinwald will be aiming for a similar result against a resurgent Rakaia, who have won their last four matches. Collegiate needs both sides to stumble and get the win over Methven if they are to reclaim the Michael Duff Memorial.

Connor eyes an early title By Jonathan Leask Connor Perriton is the only debutant among the four Ashburton Boxers heading to the South Island Golden Gloves in Kaiapoi this weekend. The Ashburton Boxing Club is sending Perriton, Christian Tikao, Declan O’Neill and Sullivan Leonard. Perriton, 11, only pulled on the gloves for the first time last year but has quickly found his feet in the ring. He had his first bout on March 24 for a narrow loss, but has had two further fights with two good

ninth post-season triple-double. Paul George had given Indiana a 102-101 lead with three free throws with 2.2 seconds left in overtime, but the Heat inbounded the ball and got it into their superstar’s hands - and James did not disappoint. With George just out of position defensively, James whirled and attacked the basket, making the left-handed shot to seal the victory. “It was a great game for us,” James said. “Two teams fought hard, we just were able to make one more play than they made.” - AFP LeBron James: Another big winner

Defending premiers Methven A have home court advantage in round two of the Mid Canterbury Senior A netball competition. Methven lost the premier final rematch with Celtic A in a rain affected round one and will look to get a win on the board against College B at their country day in Methven. In Ashburton, Celtic A will look to continue on what has been an unbeaten start to the season against College A. Then last year’s beaten semifinalists and round one winners Hampstead A and United A square off before Rakaia A and Hampstead B look to get their first win.

• Three-way race

wins, impressing boxing coach Colin Sheehan heading into the Golden Gloves. “He’s a cocky little kid and very competitive so he’s looking forward to it,” Sheehan said. “He’s not a bad little lad so providing he’s fit and well on the weekend we’ll have a good result. “There are two or three others in his weight division so he could have at least two fights if he wants to get a title.” Perriton is the debutant of the four, but Tikao and O’Neill attended last year’s event but never stepped into the ring. Only Leonard climbed in the ring

and he only had one fight going straight into the final of his grade, but lost that bout by four points. Sheehan is confident his fighters will get into the ring if they are fit enough and make the weight, but he has some concern Tikao may miss out again with a knee injury disrupting his build-up. “He had a crook knee so hasn’t trained. “I don’t know if he’s 100 per cent but I won’t be putting him in the ring if he’s not. “But the other three will get at least one. “I know Sully has a confirmed bout.

“Declan is in a group of three or four interesting young lads and it’s a pretty open field. But it all depends on the weight.” Weight determines what division they go into but, dependent on their success on day one, it determines if they get back in. “Weight is paramount. “Everyone goes in and gets weighed in to see if they make their grade. “Once they have their bout if they have to box again they have another weigh in and a doctor’s check. “When you weigh in you have to stay at that weight or you forfeit the bout.”

By Jonathan Leask What would have been a clash with the top-of-the-table Universities for Mid Canterbury is now a clash with an unbeaten bottom-of-thetable side in division one Mainland Football. Universities are unbeaten from the opening six rounds with five wins and a draw, but they have had their first five results overturned, and were ejected from the Chatham Cup, after fielding an unregistered player and now lie in last place. The students upset Mainland Premier League side FC Twenty 11 4-1 two weeks ago in the first round of the Chatham Cup, but were found to have played an unregistered

player, but so too was FC Twenty 11 with both disqualified from the national knockout competition. The repercussions went further for Universities with their opening five results overturned to be 3-0 defeats leaving them languishing on the bottom of the table Coming off a 1-3 loss to a previously winless Hornby United, the Mid Canterbury seniors are out to up their game against the former table-topping Universities, with only their 3-1 win over now league leaders Waimak United to their credit. The news hasn’t overly affected the mid-table Mid Canterbury who have problems of their own coming off a 1-3 loss to the previously winless Hornby United. Ill-discipline proved costly with

Mid Canterbury forced to play an extended part of the match with 10-men, not for the first time this season, but more frustrating for coach Peter Roberts was his side having 25 attempts on goal but only getting one into the back of the net while letting in three soft goals. Elsewhere the Mid Canterbury Youth XI are away to FC Twenty11 A in a new under 18 division one, combining the top four club sides with the top four school teams. In division four Mid Canterbury Eastern are also away to the Cashmere “sweaters” while Methven International are at home to Western. The Mid Canterbury Masters host FC Twenty11 and on Sunday the Mid Canterbury Women are away to Nomads.

Hampstead determined to bounce back By Jonathan Leask The Hampstead women are home alone this weekend as all three men’s team are in Timaru in the Mid-South Canterbury hockey competition tomorrow. Hampstead were hammered 8-0 by Craighead last weekend and face the toughest test in the competition taking on defending champions St Andrews. The local ladies will not be able to repeat their slow start from last week conceding five goals in the first half, a less than ideal way to start after back-to-back wins.

They will also want to take notes from their first outing against St Andrews, which was a 9-0 loss, but they had held St Andrews to two goals in the first half. A complete performance on their home turf could see a much better result. Tinwald will probably be happy with a different result. It’s their fourth trip in four games to Timaru and Tinwald will be looking to avoid a third straight 3-1 loss when they tackle Timaru Boys’. Cambridge, Tainui and Excelsior have all recorded 3-1 wins over Tinwald to leave the side still searching for an elusive first win, not in-

cluding their first up win by default. Wakanui Blue meets Northern Hearts in the top-of-the table clash. Hearts have only dropped one game, a loss to Wakanui Black, and will be keen to extend their lead while Blue have also only lost one game a 2-3 loss to Hearts, but two draws have them four points adrift in second. Defending champions Wakanui Black are unbeaten and will be out to keep that record intact against meet Tainui. Black are unbeaten but only sit in third with a game in hand, still to play their first round clash with Tainui which was rained off last weekend.

The Ashburton College 1st XV have a crunch clash with Waimea in Nelson in the Crusaders Secondary School rugby competition. After three rounds College have only secured a win over Nayland and need to get up over Waimea to have a chance at achieving their top eight aspirations. Waimea has the same record as College, with their only win also coming against Nayland to go with losses to Nelson and Timaru Boys’. It won’t be any easy task for coach Shane Enright’s side, having fallen to Waimea twice last season, and Waimea has retained 17 of those players in their 2013 squad.

• Baabaas v Knights The Ashburton Barbarians will look to bounce back from their first home defeat of the season in Canterbury Rugby League division one. After five rounds the Barbarians had two wins, both coming from their matches at Collegiate South but lost their unbeaten home record after going down to the Shirley Hawks 14-6. They get the chance at redemption taking on the Riccarton Knights B at home this weekend.

• Dressage day popular The Ashburton Dressage Group’s Winter Series begins on Sunday at the Ashburton A and P Show Grounds. The Winter Series acts as training days but is well attended with around 90 entries. Round two will be on June 23 with the third and final round on July 28. Ashburton’s main competition will be on September 1 and they will also hold a registered competition on November 24.

• Cup safety changes A committee investigating the death of an America’s Cup sailor earlier this month has announced a set of sweeping safety recommendations, including dropping the race wind limits by a significant margin. But despite fears a reduction in the allowable wind range would disadvantage Team New Zealand, who made certain trade-offs with their design of their AC72 to ensure they had a reliable boat in heavy conditions, Grant Dalton has come out in support of the recommendations. Dalton said the independent review findings following the death of Artemis sailor Andrew Simpson in a training accident two weeks ago are “prudent and reasonable”.Many of the recommendations are intended to increase the personal safety of the sailors. - NZH

Conquering the Chiefs By Daniel Richardson

If the Crusaders are serious about landing top spot in Super Rugby’s New Zealand conference then tonight’s game against the Chiefs in Hamilton seems like the prime time to make their move. The Chiefs have 48 points and lead the conference but have played one more game than the Crusaders who are in second place on 42 points. Todd Blackadder’s Crusaders have suffered a mini front-row crisis this week and third-string hooker Codie Taylor will make his first start of the campaign while tighthead prop Owen Franks was scratched yesterday due to a hamstring complaint. Franks’ withdrawal has provided a rare opportunity for Nepo Laulala, brother of former All Black Casey, and the Samoanborn bookend has played at ITM Cup level for Canterbury for the past two years. Tonight’s pressure-cooker atmosphere will be a big leap in class for both Laulala and Taylor but it will give Blackadder an

idea of whether or not they have what it takes to foot it at this level. The Crusaders warmed up for their clash with the Chiefs by beating the Blues 23-3 in Christchurch last weekend, while the Chiefs, who also experienced injury concerns this week, were made to work for a 17-12 win over the Hurricanes at a damp Cake Tin last week. Chiefs tighthead prop Ben Afeaki was ruled out of tonight’s game with a calf strain, which gives big Ben Tameifuna a chance to start in the No 3 jumper. Injuries in the backline have wreaked havoc with the Chiefs this year but coach Dave Rennie did have the luxury of being able to name the same midfield this week with Bundee Aki and Charlie Ngatai retaining their places after last Friday’s performance. Ngatai looked dangerous in limited opportunities against the Hurricanes and that attacking prowess may have forced Blackadder’s hand who has benched erratic centre Robbie Fruean.

Fruean’s demise sees Tom Taylor shift to second-five, with Ryan Crotty moving to the No 13 jersey, while Israel Dagg returns at fullback. Tanerau Latimer has held his spot ahead of the returning Sam Cane at openside flanker for the Chiefs after a dynamic performance against the Hurricanes and it was his try that separated the teams. Last week the Chiefs ground-out the type of victory that showed their championship credentials and they will move in to the favourite’s category if they can stop a determined Crusaders team tonight.

more business against the welldrilled Brumbies. He, Luke Braid and Steven Luatua have been a strong Blues loose forward corps but that has been snapped with Luatua’s neck injury. At the start of the year Saili aggravated an Achilles tendon but that has been sorted and he has started all but the match against the Bulls. “I have to do some work on it every day otherwise I will fall over but it is sorted, it is much better,” he said. So is Saili’s play and that of younger brother Francis. The pair chat often about each other’s play and how both can develop their fraternal progress. Peter and an older brother used to deal to the smaller Francis in family rugby sorties, and the elder two reckon that has developed their dexterity and sharpness in midfield. The task for elder brother Peter has been to lead the forward pack and make sure the loose forwards are gelling with their tight five partners. “This game will be something

else because the Brumbies try to play a bit like the South Africans, they like to get territory and then suffocate you,” he said. “We made that mistake against the Crusaders where they fronted up and we did not get enough gain line for our backs to give them something to think about,” he said. “We went okay for 60 minutes but this week it has to be more. “That is where championship teams start winning in the last quarter. We have had a few lapses like the scrum against the Stormers and the Crusaders, and the Brumbies will be looking to do something similar. “They will probably kick a lot and we have to get back and help our back three and then get into the chase line too.” With the weather closing in, the Blues will have to be careful about their usual attacking ideas. Every game is crucial and a result after last week’s shutout will buoy the Blues in their continued quest for the playoffs. - NZH

Roulston’s tour de france plans may be in doubt P17 | young boxer heads to his first golden gloves tournament P21

Southee a shining star

Perry makes it From the sideline three in a row for the Blues Test yourself with the Guardian’s weekday quiz

What is this person famous for?

For comparative purposes, go back a generation and allrounder Bruce Taylor and left-armer Richard Collinge posted some notable numbers. Richard Hadlee had the most wickets, no surprise there, but his average trimmed down as his skill and rhythm was honed to a fine degree in his last 10 years. He finished with his 431 wickets costing just 22.29 apiece. At 24, Southee has his best years to come. Another thought occurred while watching the collective skill of Southee, Trent Boult and Neil Wagner at Lord’s: are they doing England a favour ahead of their Ashes series? They put England through a wringer in both innings. Don’t forget New Zealand removed England’s last eight wickets in the second innings for 54, a comparable effort to the fourth innings, when an inspired Stuart Broad and James Anderson whistled through New Zealand for 68 in 22.3 overs. Bustling Wagner, harrying and hustling the batsmen, and Boult, with his arresting in-swing, gave England a forerunner of what they may face from another leftarmer, Mitchell Starc, when the Ashes begin on July 10 in Nottingham. Similarly, Southee offered an insight and preparation for Peter Siddle, Ryan Harris and James Pattinson. England may come to thank Southee and co in time. Meanwhile, Southee, Boult and Wagner should give New Zealand fans cause to feel they’ll be able to go toe to toe with England in Leeds - NZH from tonight.

By David Leggat Tim Southee’s coming of age as leader of New Zealand’s test attack was one of the rosier elements of the first test against England. Set aside the final-day capitulation a moment, and Southee’s 10 for 108 off 47.2 overs shone in a highly impressive collective bowling performance. Remember, last year Southee wasn’t picked for three successive tests - four out of five - because of his ordinary form. That was a regular feature ever since his dramatic five-wicket introduction to test cricket against England in Napier in 2008. Before England arrived to tour New Zealand early this year, Southee had played just five of the previous 11 tests. Injury counted him out of the trip to South Africa, but wobbly form cost him at other stages. Things changed when he was recalled for the second test against the Indians in Bangalore in August, when he took seven for 64. Southee impressed in Sri Lanka before Christmas, and had a lean couple of tests against the English before showing his class in the final match of that drawn series at Eden Park. Lord’s was his 25th test and he is roughly on a par with New Zealand’s leading seamers of recent years. Simon Doull’s statistics at that point are the best of the bunch, although he tailed off a shade over his final tests. There’s not much between the rest and Southee, the 13th New Zealander to take 10 wickets or more in a test, is right in among the field.

By Jonathan Leask Former Mid Canterbury prop Tim Perry has retained his starting spot in the Blues for Saturday night’s clash with the Brumbies. Perry has been duelling with converted hooker Tom McCartney for a position in the starting line-up, and the super rugby rookie has been given the nod for a third successive start. The 24-year-old loosehead prop faced his most thorough examination last week against a powerful Crusaders front row boasting a couple of All Blacks, but Perry was more than up to the challenge, putting in a strong performance. “I don’t think many people were backing us to hold our own, but once we got out there we thought ‘bugger this we’re going to give it our best shot’ and stand up for ourselves,” Perry said. “It gave us a bit of confidence. “There were a few good scrums and a few things still to work on but it was a good opportunity to

test myself against one of the best in Owen Franks.” The Blues philosophy of ‘Better Never Stops’ has been embraced by Perry, who is continually challenging forwards coach Mick Byrne and scrum specialist Nick White to make him into a more rounded prop. “I’m just constantly learning, the rugby side of it is awesome and it’s a great environment to be in with a great group of boys. “It’s definitely been an enjoyable few months and the learnings have been huge.” But after a disappointing loss to the Crusaders last week, the focus this week has been purely on taking the lessons and putting them into action on Saturday night against a powerful Brumbies side. Perry knows it will be one fierce contest between two sides desperate for a win. “They’ll be a tough side. “It’ll be another step up from the Crusaders in terms of physicality and they’ve got a good scrum as well so we’re going to have to knuckle down.”

It was a good opportunity to test myself against one of the best

Ricky notches up his fourth century on track When he packed his driving trousers and headed to Addington Raceway last night, top harness reinsman Ricky May was crossing his fingers he’d knock off his 100th winning drive for the season. And he clinched the deal, but it took four drives before he found himself leading the field back into the birdcage. May’s 100th winning drive for the season came on the Mark Purdontrained Daenerys Targaryen, with

Ricky May: Magic milestone

the two-year-old trotter keeping her cool in a field that was marked by several runners breaking wildly from the start. Wearing the Harness Jewels leaders’ colours, May stayed out of trouble and took the Majestic Son-Niamy filly into the lead and held off all challengers to make her early career record four wins and three seconds from just seven starts. The filly proved once again why she goes into next weekend’s Harness Jewels as top qualifier in the two-year-old Ruby trot. Daenerys Targaryen led home a

quartet of Purdon-trained horses. While he drove his 100th winner in race eight, May had struggled to get runs on the board in his three earlier drives, finishing well back in the field with Between the Lines and Seven Blue Chips, but running home third with Kid Galahad. May went into the Addington meeting with 99 wins under his belt from his 652 drives this season. He’s also chalked up 77 second places and 55 thirds, but on the scoreboard, it’s only wins that count. Top of the table for the season is

Dexter Dunn on 158 winning drives from 876 starts. May knows he has no chance of topping Dunn’s effort, but with a near-full card for both days of the Harness Jewels next weekend, he’s keeping his fingers crossed he’ll beat his own winning drive record for the season, 113. He was the first South Island driver to notch up 100 wins in a season and last night was his fourth ton on the track. His first 100 wins for a season came at Ashburton with Mimas, a horse he trained, owned by Ashburton’s Strappers’ Syndicate.

Prior to last night’s meeting, May said he was quietly confident of at least one winner, but he was also aware that it’s easy to get stuck on a number. Ending the season on 99 would have been pretty disappointing, he said. While he knows he doesn’t stand a chance of catching Dunn, May says he’s had a pretty good season, considering he juggles driving around his full-time job, farming. He’s is currently third on the lifetime winning drives board with 2286, with Tony Herlihy (3125) and Maurice McKendry (2918) ahead.
