Rocking out for charity


Five local bands will rock for fallen heroes in an upcoming concert. The Fallen Heroes Trust is a non-profit organisation which funds projects that help those with physical or mental injuries, as a result of their deployed service, and their dependents thrive despite their adversity and loss. Johnsonville’s Phil Collett organised the show because he had done charity work with Rotary originally but didn’t have enough time to continue. Continued on page 2

Children commemorate Hiroshima Day Hundreds of people gathered for the opening of an art exhibition which commemorates Hiroshima Day recently. ‘Tumanako – Children’s Art Works for a Peaceful World’ exhibition started at Te Wharewaka o Poneke with Mana Whenua representatives, the Mayors of Wellington, Hutt City and Upper Hutt, and children and their families on Sunday, August 7. After the formal part of the opening the participants went on the Tumanako Hikoi over

The exhibition invited children aged eight to 15 to create artworks sharing their vision and aspirations for a peaceful world. Hundreds of students from the greater Wellington area participated and created 275 fabulous artworks, including several collaborative pieces. Individuals as well as several schools including St Teresa’s School and Wadestown

Mayor Celia Wade-Brown, an Executive Leader of the World Mayors for Peace organisation, MCed the opening with two 12-year-old children from Wadestown School. “This event commemorates Hiroshima Day by having children look forward to a peaceful world in the future,” Ms Wade-Brown said.  The exhibition will continue until August 27 at the Wellington Central Library.

Bands raise money for war heroes Continued from page 1 The show, Rock for Fallen Heroes, has been sponsored by Petone Rotary. Phil chose Fallen Heroes because he was in the army. “A lot of guys I know have been injured in war zones,” he said. The musician saw an opportunity to raise money through music, he said. Phil’s band will be opening the concert – they formed when a bunch of old guys got together, Phil said. Five Wellington alternative rock bands will play at Valhalla on August 26, tickets will be on sale at the door for $10 and proceeds will go to the New Zealand Fallen Heroes trust. The bands playing are Darkness Within, Urge Empire, Greene King, Claemus and Cold Shot. For two years Hans Weston,

Julian Van Der Krogt and James Cartwright have been playing as Urge Empire. Julian and James met through work and Julian said when James moved to the desk across from him he noticed his workmate was hitting his desk erratically. They hit it off when Julian found out James played bass and drums, Julian said. Urge Empire met Phil when he reached out to them via social media for a previous gig, Julian said. “He organised that one so well we couldn’t really say no. “It’s something new for us – a positive thing to be a part of.”  For more information on the event visit - Fallen - Heroes593240370837136/?fref=nf or https://www.facebook. com/UrgeEmpire/.

Wellington an international education destination By Sharnahea Wilson

More park and ride and better bus hubs are in the works for the local suburbs after motions were passed at a Regional Council meeting last week.

Kathy Lloyd Parker, Principal of Chilton Saint James said the programme has been developed by and will be shared across students at all three schools.

Acting chief executive of Education New Zealand John Goulter said the initiative was a great example of regional collaboration to bring more international students to the city. “As a capital city, Wellington has so much to offer international students, and this is a great step to round out the region’s appeal.”

Marsden Collegiate School is one of three independent schools which have initiated a collaborative project to increase the number of international students coming to the capital. Marsden and Chilton Saint James Schools have joined with Scots College to jointly fund its office in China and develop a similar model in Thailand. The schools will market collectively as the Wellington Private Education Network. The project will focus on getting more international students to study in Wellington while also providing those students with a better all-round kiwi experience. Marsden principal Jenny Williams said the project would be beneficial to Wellington as a whole. “It’s a huge income into Wellington.” She said international students also impact positively on local students. “It’s important to give our own students the opportunity to mix with other cultures – everything is so globalised now.” The current model sees an

An Art Workshop in Te Aro which is dedicated to helping people grow through creativity was recently awarded for their

hard work. “We create a supportive environment so people can find themselves through art,” Vincents Art Workshop coordinator Glen McDonald said. Glen was awarded the Arts

Shift Speaker Series The Shift Speaker Series will begin on August 17 at the Wellington Boys and Girls Institute in Wellington from 4pm–5.30pm. Shift - ‘shift your body, shift your mind’ - is a project aimed to increase the wellbeing of young Wellington women aged 12-20. Shift formed out of a partnership between the Wellington City Council and the Boys and Girls Institute, supported by a large number of funders and organisations who share a similar vision to see young women flourish.

Vincents Art Workshop coordinator Glen McDonald receiving the Arts Access Accolade from Wellington Deputy Mayor Justin Lester.

Access Accolade at the Arts Access Aotearoa Awards on August 10. The Arts Access Accolade can be awarded to people who provide artistic opportunities for deaf and disabled people. It was a great honour winning the award and it brought a focus back to Vincents, Glen said. “I was lucky to find a place to work that reflects who I am,” she said. “It feels weird being rewarded for being lucky.” Vincents Art Workshop was set up 31 years ago in response to mental institutions releasing patients back into the community. A lot of the patients were involved in art programmes in the hospitals and they needed a place where they could keep doing art. Despite being set up for this, Vincents never turned people away and over the years it has become more and more known for its inclusion, Glen said. “It gives people a place to come that’s not stigmatised because it is open to everyone,”

she said. Vincents offers services on anything to do with visual art, from painting to sewing to crafts. They even have a ceramics workshop complete with a kiln, Glen said. Vincents offers a free tutored workshop every Tuesday at 10.30am on a range of different topics open to everyone though they would prefer if people booked a place first, Glen said. The rest of the time people are free to go in and do their own thing and tutors are there to help. “We’re not telling people how to do art just helping them with the technical techniques,” Glen said. “We try to create an environment conducive to personal growth,” Since the early 90s Vincents has offered a women’s only day for women who don’t feel comfortable in a mixed gender environment. “It’s a transition stage for a lot of women,” Glen said.

Locals awarded for musical excellence Two Wellington musicians have received honourable awards along with scholarships to put towards their overseas studies. The Wellington Committee of the Dame Malvina Major Foundation congratulated the joint winners, Alexa Sangbin Thomson and Hannah Darroch, of the Arts Excellence Award. Victoria University graduates Violist Alexa and flautist Hannah will each receive prize money of $2,500 towards their studies in the United States. Chair of the Foundation’s Wellington Committee George Troup said the award assessors – Elizabeth Kerr of the New Zealand Arts Foundation and Christine Argyle of the New Zealand String

Quartet – commended the high calibre of the eleven applicants, who demonstrated a great deal of talent and commitment. “The Wellington Committee of the Dame Malvina Major Foundation thanks the assessors for their work and wishes all of the applicants every success in their chosen careers,” George said. The Arts Excellence Awards support young New Zealanders of outstanding ability in the performing arts who are preparing for a professional career. Alexa holds a Bachelor of Music degree with First Class Honours in Classical Performance from Te Koki New Zealand School of Music at Victoria University of Wellington and has been awarded

several scholarships in music. She will be studying for a Master’s degree in performance viola at Rice University in Houston, Texas, with Professor James Dunham. Hannah also completed a Bachelor of Music degree with First Class Honours at the New Zealand School of Music and a Master of Music at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She has also been involved in musical community outreach and arts administration in the Wellington region. She will be studying with Timothy Hutchins at McGill University Montréal. She will take part in the Doctor of Music programme majoring in flute performance.

Retrospect fight for spot in Rockquest final By Sharnahea Wilson

A local band is fighting for a spot in the final of New Zealand’s only nation-wide music competition for students. Retrospect from Onslow College are hoping to claim the People’s Choice spot in this year’s Smokefree Rockquest which would give them the chance to record a song and perform in front of a large audience. Year 12 students Evan Oijordsbakken, Raquel Abolins-Reid, Anna Van Gorp, George Whiteley, Felix Mendonca and Ian Moore blew the judges away when they toppled the competition at the regional finals.

“When we first started the band it wasn’t a big commitment,” Anna explained. She said at the start they had just entered the competition for fun, but after doing so well at the regionals they are eager to gain the 9th spot in the nationals. The eight acts that are already through include three solos and five bands. The band, which has been described as ‘Indie Rock’, is now working hard to gain votes. The public can vote for them to take out the final spot by txting retrospect to 8466. Retrospect writes all of their own music and lyrics, and Raquel said it

takes a team effort to create a song. “Everyone puts their own touch on it.” Ian said if they make it through to the nationals they will head up to Auckland where they would get the opportunity to record a song at Roundhedge Studios before performing two songs to a live audience. Voting for the People’s Choice closes on August 22. Restrospect said they hoped the community would get behind them as they were the only Wellington band with the chance to make it to the nationals. Txt retrospect to 8466.

A new take on an old club By Laura Shipley MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

A new twist on a traditional club has come to the local suburbs. Rotary Kaukau, named after the mountain, was chartered on June 22 and established in the Khandallah, Ngaio area. They are different from other Rotary clubs because they are not constrained by a geographic location, chairman Russell Law said. “The idea is if you can see the Kaukau Mountain you can join.” This is the first new Rotary club in the Wellington region in 17 years. The aim of the club is to attract younger members to Rotary by moving away from the history of Rotary. They will meet twice a month rather than every week like the other clubs. “Younger people don’t have time to meet once a week,” Russell said. They also meet later than other clubs and have drinks rather than a meal to make it cheaper to join in, he said. “The idea is to have informal meetings at around seven after people have had their evening meal and put the kids to

Urban hangi hang-out in Aro Valley By Bethany Tiddy MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Manuka sawdust, dirt and wild fennel were just some of the ingredients used to flavour an ‘urban hangi’ for 350 locals at the Aro Valley Community Centre at the weekend. Two stainless steel ‘kai-cookers’ cooked 200 tinfoil trays of chicken, lamb, vegetables, cabbage and stuffing at a low heat for seven hours on Sunday, August 14. Local residents and businesses donated fresh vegetables in the days before the event and volunteers pre-packaged the meals. Volunteer Daniel Brown said there were options for everyone, with vegetarian and pork-free meals available. Daniel said he used dirt from Aro Valley’s Epuni St to provide the flavour of a traditional in-ground hangi. Community developer Lexi Taylor said

it was the first Aro Valley Community Council hangi. She said the event promoted good health and encouraged the community to “hang out”. Taylor said the event was much busier than anticipated. “It’s a sign of a good event if it’s so popular.” The Facebook event attracted over 1,000 interested people and over 400 signalled their intention to attend. Organisers said 350 people attended the event, with most getting a meal or sharing between two. Those who attended enjoyed kapa haka, waiata and performances from Te Aro School, Aro Valley Preschool, Hannah Fraser and The Holloway Rd Inmates. The event was supported by the Aro Phone: 0800 500 774 or 04 902 7300 Valley Community Council, Wellington Email: Timebank, Compass Health and hurangi School.

bed.” The club was formed because existing clubs are struggling to find new members. To get the new club chartered Russell had to find 20 members then apply to Rotary International. “At first they didn’t like the name Rotary Kaukau because it wasn’t a region,” he said. They had to call it Rotary Wellington Kaukau but it is unofficially called Rotary Kaukau. He said the whole process took around three months. The club had its official launch on Saturday which included a charity auction which raised money for various Rotary charities. Russell encouraged anyone interested in joining Rotary Kaukau to go along to one of their meetings. They meet on the first Wednesday of the month at Khandallah Town Hall.  For more information check out the club’s Facebook page: https:// w w w.facebook .com/search/ top/?q=rotary%20kaukau or visit

Young pianists earn distinction By Sharnahea Wilson

Two young talents have made their music teacher proud after receiving the highest mark possible for a piano exam. Olivia Sinclair, 14 and Alex Sawyer, 11, recently passed their classical piano examinations with distinction. Their proud teacher Laurel Tse, who has been teaching for 13 years, said she was not surprised by the excellent results because the two students are very diligent. “They apply themselves very well and they always excel in their work,” she said. Olivia has been playing piano for about three and a half years and has received distinction for each of the three exams she has sat – this year with an incredible 94 per cent. “Quite a few people in my family play piano. I think it is a beautiful instrument.” She said she felt nervous for the exam because she had high expectations for herself. “I was a bit of a wreck before it – I can be a bit of a perfectionist sometimes,” she said.

This was the first exam for Alex who passed with 87 per cent. The talented young pianist, who had also wanted to play the instrument for some time, felt the nerves before heading into his exam. “I felt nervous but when I got in there it was easier than I thought. I thought I would pass at least – you’ve just got to be confident.” Alex said he likes playing piano because he liked the sound of the instrument. “I just like being around it. It’s a really nice feeling.” Six of Laurel’s students sat exams this year and every student passed. The students had to play three songs each which they chose out of a list of 12. They were also tested on their technical work and their musical knowledge. Olivia and Alex will now work toward gaining their next grades in June next year.  For information on Laurel Tse’s lessons visit


Students meet sports stars A few lucky youngsters got the opportunity of a lifetime when they mingled with some of their favourite sporting heroes last week. The students from Te Kura o Otari, Maori Immersion Strand, spent the day with sports stars just days before the Hurricanes took out the Super Rugby Final. James, George and William Fullelove, along with Mataira Wallace, and their family got the chance to learn new ball skills, take selfies, and ask questions of Richie McCaw, Hurricane Nehe Milner-Skudder and netballer Casey Kopua. Joanne Fullelove said the boys had a great time – especially meeting Milner-Skudder who was an ambassador for Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori last month. "He's a role model for these boys who are also learning Te Reo Maori,” Joanne said. "In fact, the boys got a real kick out of meeting all these sports stars. They'll remember this opportunity for a long time."

...He’s a role model for these boys.

Jeoff Curtis – Newlands

I don’t think about it too much but there could be something healthier there, it doesn’t bother me though.

We should be cutting it down, it’s very accessible. It’s fine as a treat but there should be other options.

I only look for the chewing gum, it doesn’t bother me personally but for people with kids it’s at eye level within grabbing range. I don’t have an opinion either way.

It’s good, I’m happy with them I think they look bright and nice. I have teenage kids and you just have to use discipline and say no.

They are annoying because you don’t think about those treats until you get to the checkout and see them, then they become present and you think about them.

They are there for impulsive buying but I usually ignore them.

LETTERS to the editor A great form of exercise Dear Ed, The article in the latest issue of the Independent Herald, 10 August, page 5, 'Preventing the spread of winter illnesses' contained a lot about the Keith Spry Swimming Pool in Johnsonville, and how swimming there can help people stay fit and keep illnesses away. A key activity at the pool is Aquarobics (aerobics in water), which I attend, and which takes place every Tuesday and Thursday, starting at

9.30am for about 45 minutes. As well as having an excellent instructor who really gets us going, we are a social group which has morning tea together on Tuesdays (after our exercises of course) and other activities including some lunches during the year. All are welcome - please join us. It’s a great way to keep active. Contact the pool. Peter Graham, Johnsonville

Clean-up campaign launched in Johnsonville

Say thanks this Father’s Day Next month local families will recognise and celebrate the role their fathers play in their lives. This year Father’s Day falls on September 4 and Independent Herald readers are invited to send in messages and letters, which will be published on a special page in the paper, celebrating dads in our community.

By Sharnahea Wilson

A Keep Johnsonville Beautiful project has been launched off the back of multiple successful local clean-up days. Deputy Mayor Justin Lester, Peter Gilberd of Woodridge Planters and local school teacher Sarah Duignan have banded together to start a clean-up campaign in Johnsonville. Suburb clean-ups started in Johnsonville in November last year when a nine-year-old girl decided her local community needed to be tidier. Now this trio is hoping to turn the idea into a permanent mind-set. “We will start in Johnsonville but then we hope to expand it

out – there’s a real need for it,” Mr Lester said. “We’ve done a lot of clean-ups but we want a more visible movement,” he said. The team has created tote bags and ‘I love Johnsonville’ t-shirts to try and spread the message about their clean-up. Local designer Pip Bradley worked with Sarah to create the logos that will feature on the bags and t-shits. Sarah said this time around there will be much more involvement from local schools. “Three Johnsonville schools are already on board. We want to get children involved – my daughter Lucy will be coming along.”

When Sarah discovered that a large amount of local litter was ending up in the harbour she was eager to get involved in the clean-up. Peter was among the team who collected 700 kilograms of rubbish in just a few hours in Newlands. “Clearly people want to clean up their communities,” he said. A community spring clean will take place on September 3. Locals are encouraged to head along, spend a couple of hours cleaning their suburb and then relax and enjoy a barbecue. The clean-up will run from 9.30am until around 11am and locals will meet at the Johnsonville Community Centre.

Marsden girls get tough Girls from Marsden Collegiate School’s running club got down in the dirt at a recent camp. The Year 6 girls took part in the Tough Guy and Gal Challenge Wellington held at Camp Wainui. The challenge involves running through water trails, crawling under barbed wire obstacles, swamp crossing and more. Year 6 girls from Marsden School take part in the Tough Guy and Gal Challenge.

Cancer society welcomes Daffodil Day Daffodil Day is on its way and it continues to be one of the most important fundraising and cancer awareness events of the year. Now in its 26th year Daffodil Day 2016 will fall on Friday, August 26 in Wellington and New Zealand wide. Daffodil Day raises awareness of cancer and is the biggest generator of funds for the Cancer Society. The daffodil is one of the first flowers of the spring season and with its bright yellow bloom represents hope for the one in three New Zealanders affected by cancer each year. ANZ has been the principal sponsor of Daffodil Day since the event began. Donations received will go towards vital research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer as well as providing a range of support services, information, health promotion and education programmes to reduce cancer risk, awareness campaigns and programmes for people affected by cancers. The Cancer Society has recently advocated heavily for PHARMAC to fund melanoma drugs Opdivo and its alternative Keytruda with CEO Claire Austin presenting at the Labour Party’s Health Summit in the week lead-

ing up to the June budget. Claire said the positive progress made in the last twelve months around cancer care in New Zealand is in the past now and there are new areas of focus. “We have made huge strides over the past year with the generous donations from caring individuals. We want to continue to advocate and provide quality care for cancer patients and their whanau in New Zealand and we

are confident Daffodil Day will allow us to do that,” she said. “We help those who fall through the cracks and advocate for fairness for all patients. We thank those who donate to allow us to provide this support.”


Election meetings The Rotary Club of Karori and the Karori Association have jointly arranged a Wellington City Council Mayoral candidates public meeting at the Karori Baptist Church, Marsden Village, Karori, on Monday, September 5 at 7pm. The Creswick Valley Association Northland and the Karori Association have arranged a public meeting for candidates standing in the Onslow-Western Ward for the Wellington City Council at the Northland Community Centre, Woburn Road on Tuesday, September 20 at 7.30pm.

An invitation to dine

OUT& about PHOTO: Bella Photography

By Rachel Binning

Dining together is something to look forward to. Every Friday between 10am and 1pm senior citizens are invited to share lunch at the Newlands Community Centre. Smiling faces, friendly chatter and the odd banter proved the lunch made by volunteers was an inviting event for the senior members of Newlands to get together, share lunch, and make

and build friendships. Understanding there is an increasingly aged and often socially isolated population Newlands Community Centre steps in to fill the gap left by geographically spread out families and busy working neighbourhoods. “People [have] become disconnected from their communities,” Newlands Community Centre Coordinator Michele Rowe said. “[There is] lots of loneliness,” added Therese Dennison – a

Newlands Community Centre Advocate who along with her centre colleagues is developing connections with other community organisations to best support the diverse Newlands community. Michele said she “has some fantastic volunteers here” including some who take days off paid work, others volunteering through WINZ and local Newlands Primary School children setting up tables for Friday lunches, which all contribute to the smooth run-

ning of the centre. Michele wanted to encourage those in their 30s and 40s to volunteer “so there is someone there for [them] when they retire”. Far from being an exclusive lunch, staff at the community centre warmly invited more local senior citizens to enjoy the hospitality of its Friday lunches.  For more information on the lunch or to get assistance to attend the lunch telephone: 477-3724.

Friends: Margaret Martin, June Doidge and Mies Nobelen.

Making the wheels turn: dedicated volunteers support Newlands Community Centre.

Crowds gather for Hurricanes parade

Lifetime fan Fred Macdonald turns out to see the winning team

Nikki Smith and Cooper Larking, 6, spot their favourite players.

By Sharnahea Wilson

Rugby fans turned out in droves to see this year’s Super Rugby champions at a victory parade in the heart of Wellington last week. Lines of fans gathered to see the Hurricanes make their way from Parliament down to Civic Square where they could get the signatures of, and pictures with, their sporting heroes. The parade left Parliament at 12pm and players travelled in open-topped vehicles signing their fans sporting gear and stopping for photos along the way. Dedicated Hurricanes fan Fred Macdonald said he had been waiting a long time to see his favourite team take out the competition. “I have been waiting 21 years for this,” he said.

Premier League champions seek Central League spot Waterside Karori football club’s top side claimed the Capital Premier title on Saturday when they took a 2-0 win against hosts Victoria University. Wharfies have been the star side all season but started to wobble a bit towards the end of the season and were chased hard for the title by Whitby side Western Suburbs who kept the pressure on right up to the end with a final 3-1 win at Island Bay. With a Central League playoff spot already in the bag the focus for

Wharfies on Saturday was to finish in style and win the league they had led from the start of a long season. Despite the pressure of the occasion Wharfies stayed composed to dominate University throughout the match. A solid attack and equally solid defence saw them take the vital two points. The Karori side finished the season with 14 wins and two draws against just two losses in a well balanced league and they scored 56 goals in the process. Facu Barbero scored 18 of those goals

to be awarded the Premier League golden boot title. That attacking prowess will see them tough to beat when they face Team Taranaki in a home and away series for promotion to the Central League. Waterside Karori now get a couple of weeks off before travelling to New Plymouth for the first leg match on September 4. It would be a suitable finale to an outstanding season if they seal promotion at home before what is expected to be a huge crowd a week later.

Interior painting ideas Soothing bedroom Since the bedroom is the place where you come to relax, it’s a good idea to use colour schemes that are soothing and relaxing. Bolder shades can be used if the room is a large one, however is your bedroom space is small, lighter shades will make the place look open and larger. Remember when selecting a paint colour, check if it matches with bedroom features such as the bed, the closet and so on. Sometimes it is easy to get carried away and take up a totally new colour which can be great to look at, but in reality it may not blend well with the existing things in the room. Energised kitchen The kitchen is the place where you would be spending time cooking, lunching or dining with your family. The kind of paint colours that you choose for you kitchen should reflect an environment that is happy and energized, all the while having a positive effect.

e ? rm

The colour that you opt for the room walls should match with the look of the kitchen cabinets. If you want to bring out the best colour effect in your kitchen decorating, choosing complementary colours could be a good option. Such colours look really great because of their pairing and you can see such an interesting shade coming out of them. Blended bathroom When choosing bathroom painting colours, it’s a good idea to have a colour that’s pale because such colours are really soothing. There are so many examples of bold colours being used in bathroom walls such as wine colour or dark blue or dark brown, but sometimes such colours do not blend well with bathroom fixtures that are in white or a mild shade. Bathroom colour selection should always be pleasant and reflect the coolness of the porcelain fixtures placed in it.

Home renovation presents the unique opportunity for home owners to maximise the use of the property. One way is by providing storage areas for large assets such as cars, boats, motorcycles and other big vehicles that cannot be left in the open, particularly for security reasons. Additional storage space can also be utilised for odds and ends, excess furniture and bulky items which cannot be stored inside the house. Here are some useful tips when considering the addition of a garage as well as advice on how to maximise the space.

• A detached garage makes sense if infrequently used equipment, devices and bulky assets have to be stored. • A garage can also be added to serve as an office and used to work from home. • Garages are the perfect workshops for people fond of carpentry, painting or other creative activities and needing peace and quiet to work. Adding a garage not only provides additional working and storage space, it also enhances the value of the property and makes the home complete. So even if it costs some money, it is an investment that will yield returns.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

Robbie’s redemption in 2020? There hasn’t been a tougher day for New Zealand Olympians than overnight last Tuesday (NZ time). The New Zealand men’s sevens team got beaten by Japan, the equestrian team went from second to fourth to miss the medals and two rowing crews that were medal chances failed to make the final in choppy conditions in Rio. Combine that with a poor performance in the final for the women’s sevens and Sonny Bill Williams’ serious injury that will keep him out six to eight months and it was a rather depressing way to wake up! Blenheim rower Robbie Manson was one of the casualties. He and partner Chris Harris finished fourth in their semifinal. That feeling must be horrific. Four years of work only to end with a B final. I’m fortunate to consider Robbie a friend from our days at Marlborough Boys’ College. We aren’t close but he’s been very willing with his time and made the effort to come over to my table at the last Marlborough Sports Awards. While this may be a low point for Robbie, redemption, if he wants it is possible. Sport is littered with great comeback stories. If he still has the drive to dedicate himself to another four year Olympic campaign then there’s no reason why he can’t earn the Olympic medal he undoubtedly craves. Sometimes nice guys are not able to get the job done. On social media, Robbie has handled the disappointment with absolute class, the same can be said for both sevens teams and the equestrian team. Disappointment can be a great motivator and I for one am happy to put my confidence in Robbie to learn from the experience and push for Olympic medals in 2020.

Johnsonville's Under-85s team following their defeat to Tawa in the final of the Paul Potiki Memorial Shield on Saturday.

Johnsonville falls at final hurdle The Johnsonville Rugby Club's Under-85s team gave their all but eventually went down 16-5 to Tawa in the final of the Paul Potiki Memorial Shield competition on Saturday. At a rain-swept Lyndhurst Park, there was little between the two sides with

both scoring one try apiece. Johnsonville's discipline let them down on numerous occasions and Tawa benefited with three penalties. Tawa led 10-0 at halftime but Johnsonville made an attempt at a comeback when Eddie Raka scored seven minutes into the second half.

Tawa, however, wrapped the game up with two penalties. Johnsonville's reserve grade Cripples grabbed a place in next Sat u rday's John Davies Cup final when they downed a hugelydetermined Stokes Valley 13-11 at Helston Park at the weekend.

In doing so Johnsonville nudged Stokes Valley out of second place on the ladder. Scorers for Johnsonville were Siu Mareko, try, and Daniel Keig who managed two penalties and a conversion. The Cripples will play Poneke Ruffnuts in the final.

Norths to fight it out for fourth North Wellington’s Premier football side has been a travelling road show as they have faced a hectic end of season schedule. Norths have just completed three tough matches in eight days, including a Chatham Cup quarter final in Auckland. On Wednesday North Wel-

lington faced a tough assignment when they travelled away to take on Brooklyn Northern United but held their form to come away with a convincing 3-1 win. They were back in action for Saturday’s fixture against Wellington Olympic where a draw would see them move up to fifth place in the league

with a game to go. The home crowd had plenty of action to enjoy with a to and fro match that ended in a deserved 2-2 draw. North Wellington did have a chance to steal the win in the final moments when a lofted shot sailed over defenders heads but hit the crossbar.

With fifth place locked up, Norths can go one spot better when they travel away to play league wooden spooners Kapiti Coast United on Saturday. A win or draw would see Norths finish the league in fourth place which would be a superb effort in their first season back in Premier football.
