Achieve a great goal –

be part of the City2Surf

IF YOU have over-indulged

during the holiday season,

there’s no better way to start

the year than with a new health

goal.

The City2Surf on Sunday,

March 24, provides an

opportunity for people of all

different sporting and fitness

abilities to take part in one

of the South Island’s largest

participation events, which

brings together thousands of

people for fun and fitness.

There will be two events

– a 14km event starting at

Centennial Park, Spreydon,

and a Sport Canterbury 6km

event starting at Hansen Park in

Opawa.

The varying lengths mean

there is something suitable

for everyone, whether you

are a runner or walker. Both

events finish at the Ferrymead

playing fields with free entry

to Ferrymead Historic Park for

participants.

Star Media events manager

Jon Holmes said if people don’t

know where to start when

training for a running event,

they can check out the 10-week

jog programme, designed by

SportsMed, in The Star and at

www.city2surf.co.nz.

The first edition of the

programme will feature in The

Star on January 17.

A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

sexual assault has been allowed to

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

law Ursula Cheer is refusing to

discuss the matter.

“I can’t comment

about any

of this because

of confidentiality

and privacy,” she

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

learned a female

student has laid

a complaint abou the accused

being allowed to go on the trip.

It is understood it is no the

same person who has laid the

sexual assault complain to the

police.

The Star has been told it is a

rape investigation.

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

turned off.

Police would also not comment

on the matter.

The overseas trip involves

both male and female law students.

Rugby player loses cancer battle at 26

• By Sophie Cornish

A SENIOR rugby player fighting

stage four gastro-oesophageal

cancer has succumbed to the

illness after a six-month battle.

Connor Pokoati, 26, was told

in June he had cancer and had

only three to four months to live

without treatment. He died on

Boxing Day.

The Star reported on Mr

Pokoati’s battle in

November. He said the

treatment process had

been “soul-destroying”

but he was going to

fight until the end.

Mr Pokoati’s younger

sister, Tisean Pokoati,

said his family and

closest friends were

with him when he died.

“I can tell everyone, his friends

Connor

Pokoati

far and wide that he fought

right until the last second

. . . we are all heartbroken

and lost for words as we

thought this day would

never ever come.”

Mr Pokoati had just

completed a Master of

Arts in European Union

Studies at Canterbury

University and was

planning to move to Singapore

for an internship. He played

senior rugby for New Brighton.

Mr Pokoati had created a blog,

Cancer battler for life, in which

he wrote about his diagnosis,

prognosis, treatment and family.

“I realised there might be an

audience for my story. A story

that could help people in similar

situations, or for people who

are dealing with other types of

issues,” he wrote.

“As they say, the path can be

a lonely one, however, I would

like to touch on those who have

helped me, carried me, cradled

me, comforted me on this

seemingly never-ending road.

They are seen in my family,

both blood and chosen, as well

as close friends who have helped

raise my spirits when they

haven’t been at the highest,” he

wrote.

Get ready for the City2Surf

•From page 1

The Athlete’s Foot will

continue to provide a six-week,

free training series in South

Hagley Park every Wednesday,

starting on February 13.

“It’s great for those who want to

meet other runners and get some

tips from the pros, and it is open

to all abilities,” Jon said.

The message is, no matter

what you do or how you do

it, keeping fit and active is so

important for both your physical

and mental health. It’s about

getting up, getting out, and

having fun.”

SportsMedicine practitioner

and coach John Hellemans

provides tips every week in a

training programme on the

City2Surf website.

Dr Hellemans says if you are

starting your running journey

from scratch and have never

really jogged or ran before, he

recommends alternating between

brisk walking and jogging.

“Be aware that jogging is

different from running. When

jogging, you go at a pace which is

only a fraction faster than a brisk

walk. Your feet stay close to the

ground and the rhythm is that of

a slow dance.”

This is a technique that, once

mastered, will enable you to

jog for a longer period of time,

allowing you to build up your

fitness and run longer distances.

Fire rages, homes at risk

The Everest challenge

• By John Lewis

ANDREW ROOZEN says there

is only one thing better than

climbing Mt Everest.

That is being the first to climb

Dunedin’s Baldwin St 134 times

(the 8848m equivalent height of

Mt Everest) and finishing without

altitude sickness, frostbite or any

other serious injuries.

The 52-year-old from

Christchurch started the

marathon journey at 9am on

December 19 as part of the

Everest challenge.

The concept is simple: Pick any

hill anywhere in the world and

ride a bicycle, run or walk repeats

of it until you climb 8848m.

Mr Roozen said more than

3000 people around the world

had completed the Everest

challenge, but until today, no

one had done it on the world’s

steepest street.

The Everesting community

have been saying this is one of

the iconic streets and asking

who’s going to be the first to do it.

So I thought I’d be the first.”

After every 15 hikes up the

street, he stopped for food, drink

and a short rest before resuming

the hike.

“You’re not allowed to sleep,

though. That’s part of the

Everesting rules.”

During one of his breaks, he

said his body was holding up

okay.

The steps on Baldwin St are

amazing. It makes it a lot easier.

And on the parts of the street

that don’t have steps, I’ve been

zig-zagging up because it puts

less stress on the legs,” he said.

“People have been asking me

why I’m doing that. If you’re

going to walk up and down here

over 130 times, you have to pace

yourself.”

Mr Roozen said he had done

nine Everest challenges on a

bicycle on various hills around

the country, and this was

the second time he had done

a walking/running Everest

challenge.

Why? Because it was the closest

he would get to climbing Mt

Everest, he said.

He has no ambitions to

actually climb the world’s tallest

mountain.

“I do it because it’s just me. If

you fail, nobody’s going to worry

about it. It’s really a personal

challenge and it keeps you fit.”

He finished the challenge about

36 hours after starting it.

Redcliffs only

petrol station

shuts for rebuild

• By Anan Zaki

REDCLIFFS WILL lose its petrol

station for nearly five months as it

undergoes a $5 million rebuild.

BP2Go on Main St suffered

damage in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, owner Robert Jiang

said. The redeveloped station will

have an electric vehicle charger,

new shop, car wash and cafe.

The station will close on

January 28 and re-open in mid-

May. “The earthquake damaged

our buildings and [underground]

fuel tanks. So all the buildings

and fuel tanks will be replaced.”

For the past six years, the station

has used temporary aboveground

fuel tanks. The floor space

will also be expanded. “The shop

will be 300m 2 and at the moment

it’s 85m 2 . The work shop will also

expand, at the moment it’s 80m 2

and it will be 130m 2 .”

Being the only petrol station in

Redcliffs, Mr Jiang expects some

disruption.

The closest BP is Linwood,

otherwise it is Caltex Dyers Rd or

Mobil Ferry Rd,” he said.

Other nearby petrol stations are

Challenge Port Hills Rd and NPD

Port Hills Rd. Mr Jiang thanked

the community for supporting the

business since the earthquake.

High-risk sex offender

stays behind bars

• By Robb Kidd

A MAN who drove from

Christchurch to Dunedin

and tried to drag a woman

into a van for sex is still

considered a high-risk sex

offender.

Joseph Warren Lepper,

41, is serving a term of

preventive detention –

an indefinite period of

imprisonment reserved

for those considered the

country’s most dangerous

offenders.

Early last year, Lepper

challenged that sentence

before the Court of Appeal

and was knocked back.

In a recent appearance

before the Parole Board

he was again denied, but

this time he accepted the

outcome.

Panel convener and

board chairman Sir

Ron Young said Lepper

acknowledged he needed

to complete various programmes

before he could

be safely released.

A psychologist classed

him as at high risk of further

sex offending.

On October 19, 2013,

he and Zane Alexander

McVeigh drove from

Christchurch to Dunedin

and attempted to abduct a

22-year-old student, who

was walking in a poorly lit

street.

As they drove slowly

past the woman, Lepper

told McVeigh: “I’m going

to do that bitch.”

The woman fought off

the men until nearby residents

came to her aid but

she was left bruised and

missing handfuls of hair.

The incident occurred 10

months after Lepper had

been released from prison,

where he had been serving

a 10-year stint for rape.

Even before that, there

was a “long history of offending,”

Sir Ron said.

McVeigh, of Kaiapoi,

was jailed for two years

and eight months for his

role in the attack. He was

Lorena and three of her children were diagnosed with leprosy.

Lorena says “Although our leprosy could be cured, we knew that

sometimes there can be serious effects from the disease, like

disabilities. I was terrified that more of my children would get sick.

But then the Pacific Leprosy Foundation started its new programme

which gives medicine to the rest of the family so that they are

much less likely to get leprosy. It was wonderful to have that

reassurance! Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific

to be able to take part in this programme, but I know that costs a lot

of money.”

charged with detaining

a woman without her

consent with intent to have

sexual intercourse.

Lepper was given a

psychological diagnosis in

2009 and said he was having

“hallucinations and

other concerning beliefs,”

which were unaffected by

his medication before the

attempted abduction.

His “disruptive conduct”

behind bars had resulted

in him being transferred

from Invercargill Prison

to the Otago Corrections

Facility but Sir Ron said

there had been major improvements

in his attitude

recently.

Lepper was motivated to

do the adult sex offender

treatment programme

but rejected Corrections’

plan to put him through

the drug treatment programme.

Lepper will next be seen

by the Parole Board in

October 2020.

HAPPY NEW Year! I

hope everyone has enjoyed

the festive season as much

as Vittoria and I have.

Honestly, I didn’t know

she could eat as much in

one day as she did and

since she’s all good to eat

pretty much anything, our

plates will never be sacred

again.

Wee Vittoria’s first

Christmas was much more

exciting for us parents

than her initially, but we

think it left her with a

great impression.

We spent it in Waikuku

with my mum, nan, dad

and step-dad and then

headed down to Ashburton

on Boxing Day to see

my pop and aunty.

Vittoria was very spoilt

in the gifts department: A

term of swimming lessons;

a monkey toy that reads

to her; her own set of keys

(so she doesn’t steal mine

so much); and new clothes

and books.

There were so many

wrapped gifts she got sick

of tearing paper. I think

I’ll only ever say that once.

However, judging by

how difficult it was to get

her down for her naps, it

First Christmas

was spending time with

her family with lots of

colour and music which

she enjoyed most.

And all the food. I

actually lost count of how

many things she tried

for the first time. Pretty

much everything, save the

brandy, beer and bubbly.

The festivities have got

me and my wife Laura

talking about what sort

of traditions we’d like to

develop for our young

family.

Laura’s from north-east

Italy, a region near Venice

called Friuli-Venezia

Giulia.

Christmas Eve is the big

deal there, with big family

meals, mass at church and

then presents at midnight.

Whereas for my family,

Christmas Day is king,

with croissants at breakfast

and too much lunch

before presents.

We’d like to blend the

VITTORIA

& Matt

two together as well as

start celebrating the Feast

of the Epiphany on January

6.

Why? Because in Italy

it signals a send-off for

the Christmas season and

the Christmas Witch (La

Befana) visits the children

with gifts and sweeps the

floor for some reason.

Then, at least in Laura’s

village, the townsfolk burn

an effigy of her. I guess

because she’s technically a

witch.

While I don’t think we’ll

be burning effigies any

time soon (so if you’re a

firefighter reading this,

rest easy), I’m looking

forward to seeing how our

family traditions grow.

Fallen soldier never forgotten

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

RICHARD STEVENS was in

his mid-30s and working for

Sumner Quarries Christchurch

when World War 1 broke out.

On January 7, 1915, he enlisted

to join thousands of other New

Zealanders who were making

their way to the other side of the

world to fight.

But he would never return

home. Instead, he would die

in Egypt away from his family,

from a wound he sustained

during the 10-month Gallipoli

campaign, in which 2779 New

Zealanders died.

Pvt Stevens was wounded

during the Battle of Chunuk Bair

on August 8, and died

from his injuries on September

12.

Now more than 100 years

later, a cross honouring his

bravery will be claimed by his

great niece. Annette Sowman

has been the first descendant

to contact the Sumner Redcliffs

RSA to claim one of 21 crosses

remembering the men from

Sumner who died in World War

1. The crosses were on display as

part of the RSA’s Armistice Day

commemorations last month.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Vet bill fundraiser for shot cat

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE THAN $900 has been

raised to help with a cat’s

veterinary bill after he was shot

with a high-calibre air rifle.

Kylo, 2, left his house on

Conductors Rd, Prebbleton and

didn’t return home for three

days.

His owner Kirsty Sewell said it

wasn’t unusual for him to stray

away from their house but she

did become concerned as time

went on.

When Kylo returned, Mrs

Sewell picked him up and placed

him on her eight-year-old son

Lachlan’s bed.

“I didn’t realise he was hurt

until I put him down and I was

like ‘oh, no.’ He was limping and

he had a big lump in his back,”

she said.

Mrs Sewell took Kylo

straight to the vet where X-rays

determined he had been shot

and had a “major fracture” in his

front leg.

“We now know, post-surgery,

the bullet went into the front of

his shoulder, so somebody was

taking a kill shot,” she said.

Mrs Sewell said what had

happened to Kylo made her

feel “sick” and she could not

RECOVERING: Lachlan Sewell with the family’s cat Kylo, who was shot with an air rifle.

understand why someone would

want to hurt him.

Kylo had surgery to remove

the pellet and has a brace around

his leg.

It’s possible his leg may have

to be amputated, but Mrs Sewell

said they will have to wait to see

if it heals first.

Mrs Sewell’s friend has set-up

a Givealittle page to help with

Kylo’s vet bill, which is currently

about $2500.

SPCA Canterbury chief

inspector Jamie Hancock

said there has been one other

reported incident of an animal,

also a cat, being shot in

Prebbleton since January 2017.

“It’s possible some cases

are only reported to police

and some are not reported

at all, but we know this is a

widespread problem throughout

Canterbury,” she said.

Ms Hancock said causing

a cat pain or distress that is

not reasonable or necessary

is an offence with penalties of

12 months in prison and/or a

$50,000 fine.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said

police are aware of the incident

and are investigating.

“It’s actually not okay in a

residential area to shoot cats,

and if you were in a situation

where you had some legal

justification, you have to shoot

them humanly,” he said.

Mrs Sewell thanked Nick Page,

of Rolleston Veterinary Services,

for his work on Kylo.

Time to plant summer herbs

Some of the easiest

plants to grow are herbs

and flowers. Getting

to know these garden

staples is also a great

way to learn about the

basics of gardening.

Shannon Hunt provides

instructions for beginner

gardeners

•Step one: What mint

likes

Mint (common, chocolate,

ginger, spearmint) makes a

fresh and tasty addition to a

green salad and a refreshingly

healthy drink when bruised

into a jug of iced water with

lemon. Always plant mint

in a big pot in quality media

(potting mix) with a few water

crystals to help keep the plant

moist (not waterlogged) and

make sure it gets a little shade

during the hottest part of the

day. Mint does not do well if it

dries out for too long.

•Step two: Which herbs

like living with mint?

You can plant parsley and

coriander in the same pot as

mint, because these herbs love

moist soil too. Make sure you

give each plant plenty of room

to expand as they grow.

•Step three: Which

herbs like drier soil?

Thyme (common, pizza,

lemon), rosemary and fragrant

oregano, prefer being more dry

than moist and love soaking

in all-day sun. These herbs

won’t spread rampantly over

your whole garden like mint,

so plant them in your raised or

open garden.

•Step four: Basil is a

loner

Basil (common, purple,

Thai, giant, tiny leafed) needs

a little more care to produce a

good harvest. It loves growing

alone and thrives in sun,

but also likes a little shade. I

suggest you grow it in a big

pot that can be moved

around to catch the sunshine

and removed from windy

conditions.

•Step five: Coriander

stresses

A lot of experienced

gardeners suggest you get a

better product when you grow

your coriander from seed. It’s

easy as long as you plant the

seeds just below the surface

and right where you want

them to grow in your garden.

Feed well and keep it watered.

To slow down the ‘bolting’ of

coriander (it stresses when the

weather gets really hot and will

go to seed) harvest it often.

•Step six: Clip your

herbs

Always cut your herbs back

because that’s how they bulk

up. Removing the tips of

basil will create new growth.

Removing flowers from thyme,

cutting back chives, oregano

and parsley will redirect the

nutrients into the new growth.

Whether you can use the

cuttings or not, always clip

your herbs.

Step seven: Easy flower

growing

To start an easy flower

garden, cultivate a

small space or garden edge

and turn some heat-treated

sheep pellets into the soil.

Then grab a mix of marigold

and cornflower seeds and

throw them across the garden.

Place a thin layer of soil on

top and water them. Now buy

some flower seedlings

of your choice and place

them at regular (or irregular)

spaces throughout the

growing space.

Make sure you water the

garden daily and before too

long little leaves will pop

up through the soil and the

seedlings you planted

will grow bushier and begin

to flower. You can add to

the look by popping tallergrowing

flower plants along

the back.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

STRAWBERRY AND

MARSHMALLOW

PARFAIT

Ingredients

½ cup marshmallows, small

350g sugar

500g strawberries, halved

500g strawberries, for garnish

6 eggs – 4 yolks, 2 whole

2 cups cream, thick

Directions

To prepare the tin, line a

narrow terrine mould about

30cm x 10cm with plastic wrap.

Set some of the marshmallows

along the bottom with some

strawberry slices.

Place the strawberries in a

saucepan with half the sugar.

Bring to a gentle simmer over

a low heat. The juices will

come out, so there is no need

to add water. Simmer for no

more than 2min, then remove

from the heat and mash or

purée the mixture. Return it

to the pan and set aside. Use

an electric beater to whisk the

egg yolks and whole eggs with

the remaining sugar until thick

and mousse-like. Return the

strawberry and sugar mixture to

the heat and bring to a simmer.

With the beater still running,

tip this hot mixture into the

eggs and continue whisking

until it is really thick and well

incorporated. The hot sugar and

strawberries “cook” the egg yolk,

so it is not raw.

Whip the cream until it

reaches soft peaks, then fold

it gently through. Add the

remaining marshmallows to

the mixture. Spoon it into the

prepared tin. Cover with plastic

wrap and freeze for at least 24

hours. To serve, cut the parfait

into slices. Surround with sliced

strawberries and place in a cup.

HOW TO BARBECUE

PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least 3cm thick

1 Tbsp olive oil

Salt to taste

Fresh ground black pepper to

taste

Directions

Preheat your grill to high heat.

If you have a sear burner and a

steak that is more than an inch

thick, get one side of the grill

going at about medium-high in

case you need to cook it through

a little more after the sear.

Remove the ribeye steaks from

the packaging and rub them

down with some olive oil and

coat a generous amount of salt

and freshly ground black pepper.

The olive oil provides just enough

fat to help the salt and pepper

create a great, caramelised crust.

Clean and lubricate your grill

grates with some cooking oil on

a rolled up piece of paper towel

(using tongs, of course).

Place the ribeye steaks on the

hottest part of the grill and then

stand ready with the tongs.

At this point, you are on flareup

watch. The fat dripping off of

the steaks could create a flare-up.

If one occurs and doesn’t go away

in a few seconds, use your tongs

to slide the steaks away from

the open flame until the flame

dies down and then move them

back over the heat. Continue to

grill with the lid open for about

4-6min.

Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest

part of the grill.

Grill the ribeye steaks for an

additional 4-6min on the other

side, lid open, for a medium-rare

delicious steak.

Remove the steaks from the

grill and allow to rest for 5min

before serving.

The resting period is important

so that the juices don’t run out

when you cut into the ribeye, so

be patient.

The Canterbury sporting

BIG YEAR: Richie Mo’unga put his hand up to lead the All Blacks

backline. (Below) – Dave Langrell, 42, recorded 17 points, 20

rebounds and 13 assists during the Canterbury basketball final.

As we enter 2019, Gordon Findlater takes a look back at some of his

most memorable sporting highlights from the past year

WE LEARNED a lot in 2018.

Under Scott Robertson the

Crusaders continued their

dominance, winning backto-back

Super Rugby titles

and gaining bragging rights

as Australasia’s best sports

team of the past 25 years.

During their campaign, we

also learnt we have a worldclass

first-five in Richie

Mo’unga. The 24-year-old

overcame any doubters this

year and proved he’s capable

of guiding the All Blacks

backline heading into next

year’s Rugby World Cup.

It was also back-to-back

titles for our women as

Canterbury won their second

Farah Palmer Cup title in as

many years.

A 27-point haul from

Black Fern Kendra

Cocksedge helped

Canterbury on their way to

a dominant 52-29 victory

over Counties Manukau in

the final at Rugby Park in

October.

In December, Cocksedge

made headlines again,

becoming the first women to

receive the top honour at the

national rugby awards.

On the club front,

normality resumed when

Lincoln University won their

fourth straight metro rugby

title, defeating New Brighton

26-7 at Rugby Park in May.

Will 2019 be the year that a

another team ends Lincoln

Uni’s dominance? With a

number of promising players

fresh out of high school –

including Isaiah Punivai and

Louie Chapman – electing

not to take the Lincoln Uni

scholarship path, perhaps

there’s light at the end of the

tunnel for clubs hoping to

see the metro competition

become more than a onehorse

race in the future.

The 2018 UC

Championship was arguably

the most enthralling in

the competition’s history.

However, I can’t look away

from the final between

Christchurch Boys’ High

School and Christ’s College

being overshadowed by

one of World Rugby’s most

mind-numbing rules. A

large amount of confusion

surrounded the outcome,

which ended in an 18-18

draw.

CBHS were awarded the

win because they scored

three tries compared to

Christ’s two. An IRB law

states that under-19 matches

cannot be played for longer

than 70min, and in the event

of a draw, extra-time is not

permitted for player safety

reasons.

When the announcement

was made at full-time

that the match had been

decided on the rule, it was

met with disappointment

from the thousands of fans

who attended and were

anticipating extra-time.

Fortunately, 2018 also

featured a group of local

teenagers partaking in what

was anything but a fizzer at

the FIFA under-17 women’s

World Cup in Uruguay.

Blair Currie, Marissa van

der Meer, Macey Fraser,

Gabrielle Rennie, Jayda

Stewart and Amelia Abbott

had a year they will never

forget when they helped

New Zealand create history

by finishing third and

winning the country’s first

medal at a FIFA World Cup

tournament.

To add icing to the cake,

the girls also won the

National Women’s League

title with Canterbury

last month. The title was

Canterbury’s fourth in six

years and proves our girls are

setting the example for the

rest of the country.

In terms of the match-ups

that produced the biggest

spectacle, it’s hard to go past

the UC Championship final,

barring its full-time fizzer.

However, Canterbury saw

many exciting finals in 2018.

In the club rugby league

grand-final, the Hornby

Panthers looked set to hand

the Linwood Keas their first

defeat of the season when it

mattered, leading 16-4 with

less than 20min to play.

However, the Keas

produced a brilliant finish to

score three quick tries and

secure the Pat Smith Trophy

for a third consecutive year.

In hockey, Harewood

completed the premier

double with both their men’s

and women’s teams winning

premier league titles.

The men won their fith

title in nine years by coming

from a goal down to beat

Marist 2-1 in their final.

ON THE UP: Ellie Bird was a key part of the Tactix

which finished third in the ANZ Premiership.

year in review

Watch the video

The women’s hockey team

beat Carlton Redcliffs by the

same score line.

In terms of cricket, for me the

story of 2018 has to be the rise

of Gary Stead into the Black

Caps coaching role. When Mike

Hesson announced his shock

resignation in June, Stead was

the option that made the most

sense to fill the void.

Things couldn’t have got

off to a better start than with

the recent rare test series win

against Pakistan in the United

Arab Emirates. With the likes

of Latham and Nicholls looking

like our key contributors with

the bat, outside of Williamson

and Taylor, it’s becoming an

exciting time for Canterbury

cricket fans again.

Also on the rise in 2018

were the Tactix. The last 12

months have given netball fans

hope that gone are the days

of turning up at Horncastle

Arena expecting to see our team

thrashed by 20 points.

Marianne Delaney-Hoshek’s

girls showed fight, winning

their last two regular season

games to sneak into the final

play-off position. They may

have been defeated 49-53 in the

elimination final by eventual

winners the Southern Steel, but

the game had a true back and

forth feel akin to the late-1990s

and 2000s rivalries against

the southerners – the last era

Canterbury thrived in the game.

We can stick with the late

1990s and 2000s for the

performance of the year – at

least for the feel-good factor.

Dave Langrell’s triple double

in the Canterbury Basketball

Association final had more

nostalgia than any fan of the

game could handle.

The 42-year-old former

Canterbury Rams captain

recorded 17 points, 20 rebounds

and 13 assists in the final at

Cowles Stadium in September

after receiving a late call-up to

the team. However, it wasn’t

enough to stop Canterbury

University winning their

first title since 2001 with a

97-92 overtime win over the

Wharenui Gators.

DOMINANT: Lincoln University won their fourth straight metro rugby title in 2018.

(Below) – Linwood Keas vice-captain Alex Todd scored the match-winning try and

secured the Mel Cooke Memorial Trophy as man of the match for the second year in a

row after their 20-16 grand-final win over Hornby in August.

• By Gordon Findlater

HE MAY be ranked well outside

the world’s top 1000, but that’s

not deterring Christchurch pro

golfer Shaun Jones from chasing

his dream of playing on the

European Tour.

Jones didn’t start playing golf

until he was 14 after growing up

playing representative football.

However, things got serious

quickly, and five years ago he

made the bold decision to turn

pro and is encouraging young

golfers with dreams of playing at

the elite level to follow.

“Go for it, chase it. Like my

dad’s always told me, if you don’t

try you’ll never know. Go all in,”

said Jones.

The 33-year-old is currently

visiting friends and family in

Christchurch after moving to

Switzerland with his wife Anita

two years ago.

Jones has spent the last two

years playing on the Alps Tour.

He will begin his third year at

the end of the month. He hopes

to gain a top five finish on the

order of merit. It would grant

him a card onto the European

Challenge Tour, which feeds the

European Tour.

“I took the opportunity of my

wife being Swiss . . . I went to

qualifying school in Spain and

got my full card there, which I’ve

kept for the last two years,” said

Jones.

The Alps Tour isn’t the place

to try and break even. It’s more

the place to be to get up into the

next level . . . I think if you’re

good enough to win on the Alps

Tour you’re good enough to win

anywhere.”

There are other perks that

come with playing on the tour.

Playing in Egypt, Italy, Spain

and France, Jones admits there

have been some surreal moments

competing on some of the world’s

playing on the

European Tour. ​

on European Tour

most beautiful courses.

There has also been a couple of

occasions in which the Alps Tour

has lived up to its name.

“We had a tournament in

Rome this year. We arrived the

night before and went out for a

putting session, it was freezing.

We woke up the next day and

there was three feet (92cm)

of snow so they had to cancel

the tournament . . . at another

tournament it was 25 deg C on

day one and on day three it was

snowing.”

Essentially the third tier of

golf in Europe, the Alps Tour

has proven to be a pathway for

others. Jones hopes to follow in

the footsteps of English golfer

Matt Wallace, who spent time on

the tour before breaking into the

top 50 in the world.

“He’s now a four-time

European Tour winner. He spent

four years on the Alps Tour.”

Jones thanks his family and

his wife, who works full-time,

for allowing him to concentrate

purely on his golfing career.

However, he has put a timeline

on his progression. If he fails to

gain a card for the Challenge

Tour at the end of the year, he

will re-address the situation.

“I’m not thinking about that

right now; I’m all about golf. I’m

just trying to find that extra one

per cent to get to the next level.

I think if you start to focus on

something else, then you may as

well not be in it to be honest.”

Before heading back to Europe,

Jones will play a number of New

Zealand PGA events in the North

Island.

Jones hopes to make enough

prize money to cover his flight

home to Switzerland, which is

around $3000. He will have a

good chance of doing so if he can

win a third straight title at the

Napier Pro-am later this month.

Brunch by the

beach

FANCY 'a side' of ocean view with your

brekkie? Well it's available on the menu

at the Pierview Restaurant.

Located upstairs in the New Brighton

Club, the Pierview Restaurant has always

been a popular destination for dining

and private functions. Offering

uninterrupted views of beach, pier and

coastline, the view is a stunning

accompaniment to any occasion.

Sensational summer weather in

Canterbury has seen an increase in

people scrambling to the beach side and

to add to the seaside attraction the

Pierview is open Sundays from 10.30am

to 2pm for summertime brunch.

Offering all the expected scrumptious

breakfast/brunch delights, the menu also

caters to children.

Apart from Sunday Brunch the

Pierview is open from 5.30pm Friday to

Sunday serving quality, yet very

affordable, a la carte dining.

The last Sunday of the month has

turned into a tradition with the

Pierview’s ‘all you can eat’ Buffet. Priced

at just $25 per person, tables fill fast on

buffet nights, so bookings are essential.

And on all the other Sundays, there’s a

choice of the regular dinner menu,
