Paramedics gain skills

By Sharnahea Wilson

A small mannequin is set to make a big difference to Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics and volunteers. Thanks to a generous donation from volunteer Craig Sheppard of Ohariu Valley, the Wellington Free Ambulance crew can now use a child-sized mannequin to get practical and realistic experience assessing and treating children. The American-produced SimJunior, which is capable of simulating a seizure and having an allergic reaction, is the only one of its kind in the Wellington region. Continued on page 2 Wellington Free Ambulance volunteers Craig Sheppard and Hollie Dunce work on paediatric mannequin Teddy.

sessions from clay sculpting and drawing to yoga and dance. “The classes aren’t geared toward an end result – it’s about taking the goal away,” Bop explained. She said the idea of CoLiberate was for people to have a place where they could go to take time out of their busy working lives to de-stress, meet new people and indulge in mindfulness. “It is completely accessible to creative beginners.” Jody, who has experienced anxiety and depression, said CoLiberate was a fantastic, creative space where people who suffered from mental illness could feel completely relaxed. “Discussions about mental health seemed to be all around us. Everywhere we go people want to talk about it.” Jody has started her Masters in social work and said people could talk about how they were feeling at CoLiberate, but those

who would rather not talk could de-stress in other, more creative ways. Sarah said going along to CoLiberate sessions could just be a hobby and they were for anyone who wanted a place to relax and be creative. “It’s about relaxation and mindfulness. You don’t have to have experienced mental illness to reap the benefits.” The trio has already worked together for three years as co-founders of award-winning theatre company Pat-A-Cake Productions. The busy team runs the companies as separate entities and encouraged anyone who would like a space to exercise their mind to join in one of CoLiberate’s many sessions.  CoLiberate is based on level 2 of 111 Customhouse Quay.

Lifesaving paediatric skills for paramedics Continued from page 1 The 6-year-old child mannequin with a price tag of more than $23,000 can breathe, speak and match a varied number of medical conditions, many of which are infrequently encountered by Wellington Free Ambulance staff. “People get trained on mannequins like this when they are going through their degree but after that there’s nothing,” Craig, the star of Television series Street Hospital said. “Volunteers are often the first responders and this will give us a lot more confidence when we arrive to see a sick child.” Brendan Harris who has been a paramedic for eight years said the mannequin, named Teddy, would be

hugely beneficial for all Wellington Free Ambulance Staff. “We have never had an educational tool to use for a paediatric simulation, we have only had adult mannequins so this will be a big help. He said he could teach people all the theory but nothing would beat hands on experience. “The interactive mannequin gives immediate feedback to interventions, allowing learners to think critically and adjust their care plan accordingly.” Last week Brendan and fellow Wellington Free Ambulance paramedic of 12 years Kate Worthington got the chance to run a simulation with Craig and paramedic student Hollie Dunce at the Porirua station.

Wade-Brown pulls out of this year’s mayoral race By Sharnahea Wilson

There will be one less politician for this year’s mayoral candidates to beat with Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown pulling out of the race for the top spot. Ms Wade-Brown announced last week she would not be standing in the upcoming local body elections in any capacity. “I am very proud of what I have achieved as Mayor, with Wellingtonians, Councillors and staff, over the past six years and I’m confident that I leave office with further significant projects set up for a supportive Mayor and council to complete,” she said. Ms Wade-Brown has spent 20 years in local government – with 14 years experience as a councillor before claiming the mayoral chains in 2010. She said she had many achievements throughout her terms as Mayor across the economic, social, cultural and environmental spheres under her leadership. “As a progressive politician, I have led local government in New Zealand with the staged implementation of a living wage for all Council staff, CCO employees, security

and cleaning contractors. “We’ve bought the land for the new Movie Museum and Conference Centre and the last details are being ironed out between [Victoria University], [the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra] and us on the Town Hall and Civic Precinct,” she said. She said she was now ready to move on and contribute to the community in a different capacity. Ms Wade-Brown applauded those who were willing to put their hand up for the job. “It’s not easy but when you get in it’s an amazing amount of fun and an amazing amount of work.” She did however say that she would not be making comments on the mayoral candidates until after the nominations close on August 12. “I step down with both the capital and myself in good heart,” Ms Wade-Brown said. “Vogue magazine was right when they said in 2015 that Wellington is the “coolest little city in the world.”

A charity which certifies houses as appropriate for people with mobility or disability issues says Wellington needs to step up its game. Lifemark, a charity which operates a certification scheme for new homes, is being rolled out across the country. General Manager of Lifemark Geoff Penrose said Wellington would need to build at least 500 aged-friendly homes each year for the next 10 years if the needs of the city’s increasingly elderly population are to be met. “Just four per cent of the city’s new housing stock is likely to be designed to cater for people with mobility or disability issues. “The number of builders and develop-

ers creating homes that better serve our population is increasing, but it is still far too small,” he said. In Wellington, Lifemark certified 69 homes in the last year out of a total of 1721 that were consented. Lifemark representatives said the proposed medium density housing in Newlands, Khandallah and Karori was neither inherently good or bad. “Apartment living offers considerable scope to create designs that will enable most people to live more easily. Proximity to transport hubs, recreational, retail and health services combined with a diversity of occupants can make for aspirational, vibrant and liveable communities. The devil, as always, is in the detail. “Not all apartments are designed for easy living. Just because there is a level

entrance and a lift, it doesn’t mean the dwelling has taken into account the current and future needs of occupants.” The issue of uncertified homes is set to intensify as one-in-seven people will be aged over 65 by 2026 - with over 50 per cent of them with some form of disability. In 2016, there were 360,000 ACC claims worth $435 million, due to falls in the home. Lifemark homes are designed to prevent many of these injuries occurring. They incorporate design features such as improved lighting, non-slip surfaces in wet areas, better designed stairs and window latches to prevent injuries from slips, trips and falls. Lifemark works with councils throughout New Zealand including Wellington City Council.

Regional Councillor vies for better transport services By Sharnahea Wilson

Big changes could be in store for bus interchanges and park and ride facilities across the Wellington Region. This week Greater Wellington Regional Councillor Daran Ponter will put forward motions at a meeting of the sustainable transport committee that could implement big changes around public transport. Mr Ponter will put forward a motion which would suggest councils across the region, the New Zealand Transport Agency and Kiwirail work together for more extensive park and ride across the region. He said they should identify land they own or administer which they consider to be appropriate for park and ride facilities for both the bus and train networks.

“Park and ride for people who use rail services saves thousands of cars from travelling into the city each day. But we haven’t done the same for people who take buses.” Mr Ponter said the train’s passenger numbers had been steadily increasing over the last five years. He pointed out that the Regional Council, who works with NZTA to provide park and ride facilities, has not provided the same space for bus users “partly because of cost and lack of available land”. He suggested these facilities should be made available at the end of bus routes in places like Johnsonville, NewlandsPaparangi and Churton ParkGrenada areas. A motion which suggests the Regional Council should agree to include quality lighting

and monitored closed circuit television at bus interchanges would also be put forward at the meeting. Mr Ponter said these should be “minimum requirements for bus interchanges which will be critical to transferring passengers following the early 2018 roll-out of the new Wellington bus network.” Mr Ponter said he was confident he would have the support of his fellow councillors at the committee’s meeting. He said Councillor Nigel Wilson would second his motion for park and ride while Councillor Sue Kedgley would support him with his motion for better bus interchanges.  Would you utilise more park and ride for trains and buses and improved bus interchanges?

Take it away the 'Breathing Barracudas': Harkirat Singh, 6, Toby Diggins, 6, Danielle Furneaux, 5, Isla Chapman, 7, and Cade Major, 6

By Rachel Binning

A Keith Spry Pool representative reminded people to stay out of pools when they were sick following recent events in Porirua. To prevent unexpected occurrences like Porirua Arena Aquatic Centre recently experienced with the cryptosporidium illness, it was a good time to remind swimmers to shower thoroughly before they went into the pool. Swimming offers “all-round activities – and activities that very rarely get called off”, Facility Manager at Keith Spry Pool Matt Kilgour said. In line with Regional Public Health guidelines Matt explained unwell swimmers needed to stay out of the pool for two weeks after their last symptoms had gone. Matt said people enjoyed swimming to keep their fitness up and it “caters for all needs".

If 89-year-old Doug Callander is anything to go by, no one has an excuse not to keep active no matter what the age, season or reason. A visit in wintery outside weather to Johnsonville’s Keith Spry Pool proved swimming continues to be a popular activity. All ages and abilities are catered for at Keith Spry Pool – from learnto-swim classes from six months of age, to kayaking classes and aqua therapy classes for injury rehabilitation and for the elderly with joint and muscle pain. Doug started swimming at Keith Spry at age 65 and has been going strong there for 25 years. He goes down to the pool four to five times a week to swim and is well looked after by pool staff. “I feel happy I [swim]. It is my gift to me. It is my way of making my body keep going,” Doug said.

He added swimming “was good value for money”. Matt welcomed the public to check out Keith Spry Pool, its activities and its new swimming facilities. For more information on pool activities go to: http://wellington. keith-spry-pool  For more information for keeping everyone healthy in the pool go to:

Johnny Overton seeks the top spot.

there,” John explained. “It’s about letting people know anyone can stand for mayor – this is a democracy.” Johnny will represent the ‘Localisation Party’ in this year’s race and said Wellington needs to get back to its roots. “Making [the] transition from greenwashed business-as-usual to the visionary new would firstly involve halting the grandiose conference centre, film museum, airport runway extension, Basin Reserve and Chinese Garden projects,” he said. He said Wellington needed to focus on future-proofing the city with decentralisation, fostering grass-roots initiatives and creating affordable multi-purpose built environments. “A vote for Johnny will be a thumbsup to stands being made against the establishment’s globalisation agenda and for alternative views,” the candidate said. He said the founder of the Localisation Party, Lord Ayvan, would ultimately like to see the “establishment of an innovative, sustainable, uniquely constituted New Zealand Confederacy”. Johnny joined Keith Johnson as the only non-politicians who are seeking the mayoral chains this October. The number of candidates remains at eight with Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett, Wellington Deputy Mayor Justin Lester and city councillors Andy Foster, Jo Coughlan, Nicola Young and Helene Ritchie in the race.

Knowing when a rest home is right Cashmere Heights Home resident Harold Williams says there’s no place he’d rather be.

Choosing a rest home can be a stressful and difficult task, but one Wellington retiree is reassuring others they’ll know when the home is right. “It’s a feeling you get,” says former Miramar resident Harold Williams who moved to Enliven’s Cashmere Heights Home in Johnsonville with his wife in July last year. Harold explains that choosing the right home when he and his wife couldn’t manage at home anymore wasn’t easy, and the couple visited many homes before they found theirs. “I said to my boys that ‘this is the place – mum and I will be happy here’,” says Harold. “I’ve never regretted the day we moved in and I recommend to everyone to visit Cashmere Heights. I was drawn to this home for the big spacious rooms and the layout of the place, and what made me stay was the staff. I’m very happy here.” He says the staff make Cashmere feel like home. “The staff are lovely, I can’t speak highly enough of them. From the management to the kitchen hand, they are all wonderful. They make you feel so welcome.” Harold says soon after moving in he took up the job of looking after Cashmere Heights Home’s new chickens. “They asked me if I would like a job and I said I’d love one, so I began looking

after the home’s new chooks. I let them out of their house in the morning, put them away at night and collect the eggs,” says Harold. “There are four chooks and they lay about three eggs a day. I enjoy having little jobs. I also help set the tables for lunch every day.” Harold says he and his wife Dawn enjoyed living together at Cashmere Heights Home, but Dawn passed away in October last year. “She was very sick but she never complained. They were so lovely to my wife. We were married 64 years,” says Harold. “My boy asked me if I wanted to shift to another home to be a bit closer to him after Dawn died but I said no. I’m happy at Cashmere Heights. I know everybody and they are very nice here. I wouldn’t want to go to any other home.” Johnsonville’s Cashmere Heights Home and sister-site Cashmere Home are operated by Enliven, part of the not-forprofit organisation Presbyterian Support Central. The homes provide rest home, hospital and palliative care, including short term respite and health recovery.  For more information about Cashmere Heights Home or Cashmere Home, both located on Helston Road in Johnsonville, or other Enliven services in Wellington, visit www.enlivencentral. or free phone 0508 36 54 83 (that’s 0508 ENLIVEN).

Crane lift delayed due to high winds Last weekend’s plans to use a crane to install the frame for the new Cable Car Lane were postponed due to high winds. Council project manager Anna Harley said strong expected southerlies over the weekend meant a decision was reluctantly made

today to delay the crane lift until this weekend. “We’re keen to do this work as soon as possible but need conditions with little or no wind to complete it safely,” she said. “At this stage, the long-range forecast for [this] weekend is look-

ing promising.” Weather depending, the section of Lambton Quay between Willis Street and Brandon Street will be closed to traffic and buses from 8pm on Friday, August 12 to 5am on Monday, August 15. A call will be made on Friday and

if it is all go, traffic management will be in place from 8pm that night so the trolley wires can be temporarily taken down and the crane set up. Weather depending, the traffic and bus detours and temporary parking restrictions that were planned for this weekend will instead happen

Parade planning well underway The Johnsonville Lions Christmas Parade planning has already kicked off for the popular end-of-year event. The club is pleased with the early interest they have received from local groups who are keen to be involved in the annual parade. Organiser of the event, Rosemary Cook, said a small committee of keen Lions members have already begun planning for the event on Saturday, December 3. “We need a long lead in time... as we want to involve a wide range of local community groups. We also need planning time to seek funding for this large community event. “Our members are pleased to continue organising this local event for community enjoyment. After more than 15 years of parades we plan this year to again have the best community parade in the greater Wellington area.” Several local groups have already

next weekend. The work is being planned over a weekend to minimise disruption. Anna said the crane work would be an essential part of building the elegant new glass canopy that would replace the leaky old one that was removed last month.

indicated their intention to participate in the parade. But the club pointed out the fact that there was room for more. Johnsonville Lions would like to continue their winning formula of a truly local community-based parade.

members, enjoying each other’s company while serving the needs of Wellington’s northern suburbs.

Community Centres in your neighbourhood Over the past few weeks, the Independent Herald has been profiling each community centre in Wellington’s Northern and Western Suburbs. This week we had a chat to Wadestown Community Centre Advocate Louise Davies. Wadestown Community Centre Advocate Louise Davies has been involved in the centre for 16 years and is still coming up with new and innovative ideas. After a 20-year career in the Navy, Louise decided she wanted to get involved more in her local community and decided to put her hand up for the role of community centre coordinator. She said the people of Wadestown have two spaces to utilise – the community centre itself located on Pitt Street, and the

dedicated ‘Community Space’ in the Wadestown Library. Louise works closely with the two local residents associations, the churches and Wadestown Primary School on village-wide projects and events. “I’m so lucky here to have such great support from the rest of the community,” she said. The Community Centre offers a variety of different activities and services including a Toy Library, Mahjong, Zumba

and Yoga. “It operates as a crèche during weekdays but it is hired out for holiday programme activities and group activities during school holidays. Louise said there was always room for new classes and she would love to see someone teach a language there or someone to hold art classes for children after school. “I am also trying to get Tai Chi classes up and running,” she said. Louise said the centre was

a “wonderful old building” which used to be a gentleman’s club until it became the library in 1985 and then eventually the community centre. She said it was important for the community to get to know each other in these shared spaces. “It’s about being self-sustainable and working together as a community.”  For any queries regarding the community centre email

Committee make decisions on animal policies A series of recommendations on rule changes affecting animals in the city were made at a Wellington City Council Environment Committee meeting last week. The committee’s decisions on August 4 regarding cats, dogs, roosters, pigeons, bees and other animals in the city will be subject to confirmation at a meeting of the full Council on August 17. The committee considered amendments to the Wellington Consolidated Bylaw 2008 Part 2: Animals. It also considered recommendations from a review of the Council’s Dog Policy over the past year. An Animal Policy will be developed to provide the public with more information. Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown said the proposed changes strike a balance that recognises both the importance of people’s relationships with their pets and the

impacts from uncontrolled animals. “Protection of native wildlife is dealt with under a separate area, implemented through increased pest control funding, planting and species release at Zealandia.” “The compulsory microchipping will enable cats to be more rapidly reunited with their loving owners.” The committee’s Chair, Councillor Iona Pannett, said the bylaw and rules are part of the council’s intention to protect animals – to enhance their welfare and to stress that people have responsibilities in this regard. The Committee also recommended some changes to the areas where dogs are allowed to be off-leash. These changes to some parks and dog exercise areas aimed to reduce conflict between dogs and other park users whilst allowing dog owners to exercise their pets.

When Gaye Davis and her family moved from their farm to the streets of Masterton, they envisaged a new beginning ahead. When Gaye was told that she had a brain tumor that needed to be removed, her new start turned into a journey of healing. Gaye was told that she would need four weeks of radiation therapy, and chemotherapy for another four weeks down the track. Naturally the Mum of four was wondering how she was going to manage the appointments. In stepped Margaret Stewart House – The Cancer Society Wellington’s onsite accommodation for out-oftowners needing treatment. “I don’t know what I would have done without Margaret Stewart House. Masterton is quite far away, I would have had to have someone

It would’ve been too much for me,” Gaye said. “My room here has beds in it for my kids to stay, which is fantastic. For them to come down and spend a day with me… well it’s helped them to be able to understand what’s going on.” It is the people who have truly made Margaret Stewart House feel like a home away from home for Gaye. “I met a woman here who has the same thing I have. It was so good talking to her. The best thing here is all the people… and meeting others on a similar journey. We are all in the same boat. There is a sense of comradery. The staff are

so amazing and the volunteers too. I call it my little Motel.” Gaye has been making the most of the Margaret Stewart House library, and the “awesome scones on Wednesday, with cream and jam”. The Cancer Society wished Gaye a full recovery for the journey ahead.

Bike Racks on Buses trial successful By Sharnahea Wilson

A Bike Racks on Buses project had a trial run in Wellington in June and a regional councillor said the trial proved successful. A report to the Wellington Regional Council’s sustainable transport committee said no issues were found with the project in Wellington’s Central Business District. One of two bike racks, which can hold two bikes, was attached to the front of a Mana bus for testing on all Newlands bus routes in and out of Johnsonville on two Sundays in June. The report said there were minor infrastructure issues with regards to some give ways and limit lines. This

meant Greater Wellington would need to request Wellington City Council trim bushes and in one case, pull back the limit line of a turning bay in Johnsonville. Greater Wellington Regional Councillor Daran Ponter said he was looking forward to the roll-out of the bike racks on one of the Newlands bus routes to the Northern Suburbs. “This will allow further trialling before the system is progressively rolled out across the network." “The ‘Have a Go’ events are an important means of allowing people to get familiar and have confidence in the system,” he said. He said this initiative was well overdue in Wellington City.

“It will provide people in the Northern suburbs new options for travelling to and from the City. It is part of building a more integrated passenger transport system". The next steps in the project would include the purchase of six more racks, finalising policy, identification of a suitable Newlands route to operate the trial on and the involvement in driver training for Mana Coachlines staff. This would give the public an opportunity to experience using the bike racks.  Would you use the bike rack on the bus if there was one available? Send an email to herald@wsn. with your response.

Karori Cemetery’s historic chapel.

Preserving history at Karori Cemetery A chapel and one of New Zealand’s oldest cremators are being strengthened as part of a project to preserve history at the Karori Cemetery. The small chapel and crematorium, which date back to 1909, are being earthquake strengthened by Hawkins. There are seven stained glass windows in the small chapel and six of them were built in the An Tur Gloine (Tower of Glass) factory in Dublin between 1914 and 1939. Wellington City Council Buildings portfolio leader Iona Pannett said the work was a crucial part of preserving the building’s heritage. “The Karori Cemetery chapels are valuable community assets and listed heritage buildings, so this initial removal and restoration work on the windows is part of our effort to improve the resilience of our buildings in an earthquake,” she said. “It’s also important for our heritage buildings to keep the characteristics that make them so special for future generations to enjoy.”

There were two cremator units, weighing 14.5 tonnes each, which had reached the end of their serviceable life and had to be craned out through a hole in the roof that was made by removing the tiles and framing. The new cremator was then seamlessly lifted into place and the roof was being re-built around it. Hawkins Regional Manager in Construction Matt Wilton said the Karori Cemetery chapels were valuable community assets and listed heritage buildings. “Hawkins is relishing the opportunity to help preserve this charming slice of New Zealand history, thus ensuring its future use for the local community.” The Karori cemetery was established in 1891 and is New Zealand’s second largest burial site with over 83,000 people buried there. The project is expected to be completed next month. It forms part of Wellington City Council’s programme to make the city stronger and safer.

Petone came alive with Steampunk enthusiasts last week. Costumed artists and their impressively dressed supporters from Capital! Steampunk converged at the Alfred Memelink Artspace for the wintery opening night of 46 Waione St Petone the ‘Cognition’ exhibition on Thursday, August 4. Ph: 5685989 Open Sat 9am-3pm Formerly spares In his opening speechcpa Leslie Craven aka Col. Hawthorne summed up Steampunk as “Victorian-inspired science fiction”. Funeral Director Khandallah’s Therese Dennison aka Lady Octavia Bugg was one of the exhibiting Steampunk artists. Therese described Steampunk as “a quirky and fun genre of science fiction that features steam-powered technology”. Therese’s art incorporated technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th Century industrial steam-powered machinery. “As a mixed media artist Steampunk lends itself to using my imagination and creativity,” Therese said. Therese draws inspiration from industrial inventor airships, flying machines and nautical designs. “I often don’t know where my artwork is going. “It is organic as it evolves into the final piece,” she said. The Victorian couture also gives Therese and her husband John aka Sir Harvey Lampoon a good excuse to dress up in wonderful clothing and have fun with like-minded people. “Steampunk gives me permission to be eccentric and unconventional. “It is play acting without having to learn the lines.” The Steampunk exhibition includes jewellery, sculpture, ceramics, paintings, marvellous assemblages and remarkable wearable art.  For exhibition opening hours go to View the Wainuiomata News For information on Steampunk go to www. online

Waterside Karori have eyes on the prizes Waterside-Karori football club members have their eye on a place in the prestigious Central League competition but they have a couple of challenges to overcome on the way. First up will be this weekend’s f ina l league match against Victoria University where a win will see them claim the title as Capital Premier Champions – in fact a draw would probably be enough to secure the title. However a loss could see the trophy slip from their grasp as Western Suburbs are in hot pursuit. With that match safely out of the way Wharfies will concentrate on the loftier goal of a place in the Central League. This will involve both home and away fixtures against

Team Taranaki and will be a formidable challenge as Team Taranaki is comprised of the best players from all of the Taranaki football clubs. Team Taranaki have won the Central Football League three times, including the last two years. The Waterside Karori 1st team have, for the fi rst time in 20 years, succeeded in gaining the right to play off for a position in the Central League – the elite men’s division in the lower North Island. The fi rst leg of the double will be played in New Plymouth on September 3 and Wharfies fans will turn out en masse for the second leg at home on September 10. In the meantime the club will be looking for the Capital

Premier trophy to grace the clubhouse trophy cabinet. It looks like the cabinet will be in high demand as in addition to the Premier team, for the first time in the club’s history, the top four men’s teams are in a position to win their respective leagues and all gain promotion to the league above. Club spokesman, Duncan McLaren, said this was unprecedented. “The international players have assisted in giving the club this chance (playing in the top two teams) and coaching and mentoring other players in the club. If all the results go our way then the club is well placed to celebrate a rare and significant milestone which will be unique amongst Wellington’s football clubs.”

North Wellington out of Chatham Cup North Wellington football is in great heart despite their quarter-final Chatham Cup loss to Three Kings in Auckland on Saturday. Three Kings were hot favourites going into the game before their home crown and their experience paid off with a convincing 6-1 win. The Capital’s last remaining team in the Chatham Cup is Miramar Rangers who beat Cashmere Technical 4-2 to set a semi-final clash with Auckland side Birkenhead United. Norths Club president Grant Stephen said it was still a great occasion for the North Wellington club playing in the final eight of the top Cup competition in the country. “It was a great learning experience for our young squad playing the second placed team in a higher league.”

North Wellington had a superb run leading up to the quarter-final as they accounted for Palmerston North Marist 3-2 in the last 16 round. This followed wins against Seatoun 7-0, Kapiti Coast United 1-0, and Upper Hutt City 5-1. North Wellington will now turn their attention back to the Capital Premier league with a mid-week fixture against Brooklyn Northern United at Wakefield Park. “We are focussing on the Premier league now. We’re two games behind but still in fifth place and safe for our first season back in the Premier League after nine years,” Stephen said. The final home match for North Wellington this season is on Saturday against Wellington Olympic. They will then play a final catch up game away against Kapiti Coast United the following weekend.

North Wellington put in a good effort making it to the Chatham Cup quarter-finals.

Waterside-Karori fight for a spot on the central league.

A step closer to victory Two of the Johnsonville Rugby Club's teams took a step closer to season honours at the weekend. The club's Under-85s team grabbed a place in the final of the Paul Potiki Memorial Shield when they scored an injury-time 13-10 win over Wellington.

The reserve grade Cripples also showed their skills when they walloped the Upper Hutt Rams to gain a semi-final spot in their grade. The 85s will play competition leaders Tawa away on Saturday while the Cripples meet Stokes Valley at home in their semi.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

Barrett shines in Super Rugby final Beauden Barrett’s irresistible form must see him anointed as currently the best No 10 in New Zealand rugby. In the post-Daniel Carter era, it has been the diminutive playmaker from Taranaki who has stepped-up the most and made sure his play is impossible to ignore. He outplayed incumbent All Blacks including first five Aaron Cruden in the Hurricanes’ Super Rugby semi-final win over the Chiefs on Saturday, July 30. A fantastic performance by Barrett at the weekend helped the Hurricanes secure their first ever championship after dominating the Lions with a 20-3 finish. After picking up man of the match Barrett has done well to shake off “the impact player” tag. His electric pace, great vision and ability to play fullback has seen him be an effective tool for All Blacks coach Steve Hansen to use against tired opposition.

With his general play, kicking and improved percentage off the kicking tee Barrett finally got his opportunity to make 80 minutes of impact rather than 25. Cruden’s form has been mediocre at best during the Super Rugby campaign and while he has a safe spot in the All Blacks squad, he’ll need to be wary of the vastly improved Lima Sopoanga, who is also creating a strong statement for more international exposure after another solid season for the Highlanders.
