SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday May 9 2018 21 ‘Missed opportunity’ for Lincoln SPORTS TALL TIMBER: Lincoln lock Mark Stanbury soars high against Ohoka. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY • By Jacob Page LINCOLN MISSED an opportunity to go equal top of their section in the Luisettti Seeds Country Combined division one rugby competition after a 22-10 loss to Ohoka on Saturday. Coach Dale Eathorne described the game as “a missed opportunity.” “Our decision-making let us down at crucial times,” he said. “We made a few poor defensive reads which cost us.” With All Blacks prop Joe Moody in the scrum, Lincoln had dominance in that area but Eathorne said the lineout was 50/50 at best. “We will have to work on accuracy because we just panicked at the wrong time and it’s ended up costing us.” Eathorne said it was always a thrill to have Moody back in the team environment. “Everyone enjoys playing with an All Black in club rugby,” he said. Lincoln now sits fourth in section A, five points behind the three leaders – Waihora, Celtic and Saracens. Celtic and Saracens both enjoyed wins in the absence of Waihora who has a bye, to keep the pressure on at the top. In section B, Darfield and Prebbleton are locked at the top of the table after contrasting victories over the weekend. Prebbleton put 52 unanswered points on Hornby while Darfield was made to work hard for a 39-37 STRONG TACKLE: Lincoln’s Kris Wilder being tackled by Ohoka’s George Wiggans. win over Kaiapoi.

In images used in the media of significant male politicians or male professional leaders these men more often than not wear a suit albeit maybe without a tie these days. The suits these men wear convey power. Do these men wear suits because they are a symbol of power? Do corporate woman feel they have to emulate men in the way they dress to achieve power? Why in fact is there such a historical difference in the clothes of men and woman? Do men have an advantage in society because there exists this type of uniform that gives them an unspoken air of authority that there is not something equivalent of for woman? The history of menswear suits, over-coats, trousers, shirts and ties can be traced back several centuries and remain very traditional and recognisable in the 21st century. The shape of the lapel, the size of the tie, the quality of the material and the way they are produced may have changed but the form and its associations are immediately identifiable. Sombre colours of greys and black suits still dominate. These suits are trans-seasonal. It is a code of dress that is universally recognisable. By its continued widespread use it isn’t likely to change. These suits are not necessarily worn for comfort so are they still in such dominant use because of the symbols they convey? Here seventy men are dressed in traditional suits then they deviate playing with shape and form, eccentricity, personality and individualism also drawing at times on more feminine influences of colour and pattern. It is an unresolved exploration of menswear and its implications in contemporary society.” Gill Hay.
