HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC.

The Star 49 Sport Foran to meet Storm coach Craig Bellamy – report AUSTRALIAN MEDIA are reporting that Kieran Foran joining Melbourne is back on the table with the Warriors star supposedly seeking an audience with the Storm’s master coach Craig Bellamy. The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Foran is contemplating “the prospect of starting over in Melbourne.” The Warriors play the Storm on Tuesday in Melbourne in the traditional Anzac round clash between the two clubs. Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi The Sydney Morning Herald claimed Foran would use the opportunity to meet Bellamy, who is seeking a replacement for departing playmaker Cooper Cronk who is moving to Sydney to be closer to fiancee Tara Rushton. It reported Bellamy has identified Foran and St George Illawarra captain Gareth Widdop as the best players available on the open market. It said Foran would tour the Storm’s facilities and meet with coach Bellamy and his key staffers. “The Kiwi international is keen for the visit not to disrupt his game preparations and is likely to seek the permission of Warriors officials to do so,” The Sydney Morning Herald reported. “We are yet to rule any candidate out,” Storm chief executive Dave Donaghy said. “We won’t be rushed into anything, there are a number of retention and recruitment Thursday April 20 2017 decisions to be made in the coming weeks and months.” Foran is also in Newcastle’s sights for next year and is being strongly linked to the Canterbury Bulldogs. Reigning premiers Cronulla may also be in the mix after losing Jack Bird to the Brisbane Broncos. Foran’s preference is to play in Sydney to be closer to his family but that doesn’t rule out the Storm as an option. –NZ Herald Carpet piCk of the week Berber Grid An absolute bargain, extra heavy duty 100% solution dyed nylon carpet, in two colours - Viking and Charcoal.
