Seeing red over red light-runners

• By Julia Evans

RED LIGHT-runners, like

the person driving this

campervan, are putting other

motorists lives at risk.

On Tuesday afternoon the

vehicle ran a red light at the

busy Curletts Rd and Main

South Rd intersection.

The Christchurch Transport

Operations Centre has just

released its annual data on red

light-runners at city intersections

which was collected over

24 hours on November 29.

The intersection of Curletts

and Main South Rds was

the worst with 861 motorists

running red lights during that

period. That equates to nearly

36 every hour. More than 500

of the red light-runners were

from the Curletts Rd north

approach.

There were 10 crossing

crashes at the intersection between

2012 to 2016, including

one fatal in 2011.

Canterbury Road Policing

Manager Inspector Ash Tabb

said red light-running put

drivers, passengers and other

road users at risk.

Water looms as election issue

• By Julia Evans and

Jess Gibson

CITY COUNCILLOR Aaron

Keown’s idea to sell water to

lower rates is likely to become an

election issue.

Cr Keown is getting

little support from his

council colleagues over

his plan for the city

council and Ngai Tahu

to bottle and sell water

overseas to reduce rates

and fund projects.

They have accused him

of electioneering.

His idea comes as Chinese

water bottling company Cloud

Ocean Water has permission to

take 1.57 billion litres of water a

year from two bores in Belfast.

It paid $2277 for its resource

consent applications.

The company does not have to

Aaron Keown

pay for the water it draws.

But Cr Keown told The Star

yesterday the lack of support for

his plan from fellow councillors

could backfire on them in the

October local body elections.

“It’s not electioneering.

What it is, is a deliberate

set up to help weed out

councillors who are

devoid of positive ideas.”

If he did not get the

support it would become

an election issue. Voters

could turn against them,

he said.

City councillors Mike

Davidson, Jamie Gough, Sara

Templeton, Yani Johanson and

Phil Clearwater told The Star

yesterday they did not support Cr

Keown’s idea.

Said Cr Davidson: “I guess it

is election year, so we’re going to

see a bit of this kind of thing. To

me, the main thing is making

sure we can protect our water

instead of looking at get rich

quick schemes.”

Cr Gough said the idea

sounded “appealing to the

masses” but is unworkable in

practical terms.

The reality is it would be

infinitely more complex than the

supporting sound bites would

suggest.”

Cr Johanson said he

understood where the idea

came from but did not think

profiteering off water was in the

city’s best interest.

The question isn’t could we,

but should we. Not only could it

put our water supply at risk, but

it would potentially mean a

billion additional, unnecessary

plastic bottles,” Cr Templeton

said.

Ram-raiders target cigarettes

• By Emily O’Connell

EARLY MORNING ramraiders

spent 3min in a dairy

and fled with thousands of

dollars in cigarettes and cash.

Two heavily disguised

offenders broke into the locked

cigarette cabinet at Lincoln’s

Robert Street Convenience

Store after smashing their way

through the front door in a

stolen Subaru.

The heist at 3am on December

31 was caught on the store’s

CCTV camera.

The store manager, who did

not want to be identified, said

$1500 to $2000 in cash was

stolen, along with “roughly”

$6000 in cigarettes. She said the

offenders must have planned the

burglary as they knew which

cabinet the cigarettes were in.

She said the store had to be

closed on New Year’s Eve but

was reopened the next day.

However, she believes the

break-in caused a decrease in

business with shoppers put off

by the way the store looks.

“It’s [the store front] not nice,

right. You can see the difference,

it was really nice and neat,” she

said.

The manager said the owner

of the store was notified about

the break-in by a security alarm,

but by the time he got to there

the offenders were gone.

It’s not the first time the dairy

has been targeted for cigarettes.

The manager said the store was

broken into about 18 months ago

and cigarettes were stolen.

However, she said there was

more damage this time because

the offenders had to get through

the safety bars. She said it will

take one to two months to fix

the damage.

Senior Constable Andy

Williamson said police

recovered the vehicle at Birchs

Rd in Prebbleton. It was

stolen from Lincoln. He said

inquiries into the burglary are

continuing.

Water looms as election issue

•From page 1

However, city councillors

Glenn Livingstone and Raf Manji

both said they could see merit in

the idea.

But Cr Livingstone questioned

the timing of Cr Keown’s ideas

in an election year. While he saw

merit in it, he believed

the plan was “halfbaked”

and would not

support it.

Cr Manji said the idea

was worth exploring.

“We should have the

conversation,” he said.

Yesterday, The Star

also took a snap poll

of Christchurch residents

to see what they

thought of the plan.

Feedback was divided.

Fendalton’s Rhett

Mason was firmly opposed

to the idea as it

was not sustainable.

He also said Cr

Keown is an “archival

grandstander” who

wants to get re-elected.

But Joan Haines of

Papanui supported his

plan as long as residents

were guaranteed an infinite water

supply.

“It seems ironic that we already

give it away and we are just starting

to think about what else we

can do with it.”

Former Mayor Garry Moore

said it was an “excellent publicity

stunt” but the idea had no legs.

“It would turn our pristine

water into an environmental

disaster,” he said.

“We need to ask

ourselves why the

environmental cost to

the planet has not been

considered.”

The lobby group

which is taking legal action

in the High Court

against water bottling

consents Aotearoa Water

Action spokesman

Raf Manji Peter Richardson said it

was a “dreadful” idea.

“Continues the idea

of commercialising

water instead of looking

at the long term . . . it’s

a short-term mindset

rather than ecological

wisdom.”

To off-set any environmental

impact, Cr

Keown said recycled

glass would be used to

Mike Davidson bottle the water.

“We need to be a

smart economy. Our economy

doesn’t have a golden goose like

Norway’s oil, but it does have

water.”

Running reds: ‘It’s just not worth it’

Glen Koorey

•From page 1

“Our staff are working on our

roads every day trying to stop

risky behaviour, such as people

running red lights,” he said.

He said too many drivers enter

intersections on orange lights.

These often change to red

while the driver is still in the

intersection, which creates unnecessary

risk,” said Inspector

Tabb.

“What

people need

to remember

is, it’s just

not worth it.

You’ve got to

ask yourself; is

it worth crashing

and risking

injury – or

worse – just to

get across an intersection without

having to wait for another light

change? You could seriously hurt

yourself, or somebody else.”

Second on the red lightrunning

list, and also last year’s

highest, was Colombo St and

Moorhouse Ave with 806 runners.

Last year it had 666.

The intersection also has the

second highest number of recorded

crashes with six between 2012

and 2016.

6580 in 2016.

Operations manager transport

Steffan Thomas said the city

council is concerned about the

number of red light-runners.

“At present, the trial red light

camera is collecting statistical

information, including video and

fixed images of speeding and red

light-running incidents,” he said.

The camera is at the intersection

of Bealey Ave and Madras St.

“Police have access to the data

collected from the red light-running

camera so that they may use

it to help inform any enforcement

strategies.”

ViaStrada senior traffic engineer

Glen Koorey said there was

a “myriad” of reasons why red

light-running occurred.

“It can be deliberate or it can be

innocent, people might not notice

the light,” he said.

“Sometimes even just a change

in traffic volume pressure at a

particular time of the day . . .

Curletts is busy at the best of

times.”

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has

been eradicated and can no longer cause fear, stigma

and discrimination in families and communities.”

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.”

treatment for one household contact of a

What kind of a world will the New

Two years ago

Radhika Naidu gave

birth to identical

twin boys, Manu and

Dominic Wells, on

New Year’s Day. Emily

O’Connell reports on

their progress since,

while Anan Zaki

investigates what

kind of a world they

will grow up in

“CHEERFUL, PLAYFUL and

extremely naughty.”

That’s how Radhika Naidu

describes her twin boys who

were born nine weeks premature

on January 1, 2017.

Their early arrival meant the

twins spent the first 57 days of

their life in a neonatal intensive

care unit in Christchurch

Women’s Hospital. It also meant

the pair were known as twin

one and two for six weeks, while

Ms Naidu and husband Victor

Wells decided on names which

included both their cultures.

Although the two-year-olds

are identical, Ms Naidu says they

look “so different” and their personalities

are not “alike at all.”

She said Manu, who is the

bigger twin, was the first to walk

and develop skills and Dominic

is more cheerful and observant

and “takes on adverse situations

more readily.”

Along with the twins, Ms

Naidu and Mr Wells are kept

busy with two other children,

Mia, 7, and Ariki who is threeand-half-years

old.

“I just don’t remember having

to monitor them [Mia and Ariki]

all the time like this. These guys

[the twins] egg each other on,”

she said.

Ms Naidu says the biggest difference

between the twins and

her older two children is their

comprised immunity caused by

a premature birth.

“Especially Dominic, so when

he was born . . . they realised

his umbilical cord was straggly

and unhealthy looking and it

had knots in it. So it had been

comprising his blood flow from

the beginning,” she said.

Dominic has an eye condition

called nystagmus, which Ms

Naidu has been told is common

with premature babies, and he

has immature lung development

meaning he gets sick easily.

They both have asthma and

eczema and they use preventers.

They seem to be a little better

now. We’re hoping they keep

improving,” she said.

January 2017 was a busy

month for Ms Naidu and Mr

Wells, with the birth of their

twins which “forever redefined”

New Year’s Day for them, moving

to Redwood from St Albans

and their first child, Mia, starting

primary school. Ms Naidu

said her husband was the “rock”

during this time.

Manu and Dominic aren’t

the only ones in the family

born on a significant day, their

grandmother Protima Naidu

was born on Christmas Day and

their sister Mia was born on Guy

Fawkes.

Ms Naidu says discovering

Mulitples Canterbury, which

supports people with twins,

triplets or more, has been “encouraging”

and has helped her

feel less isolated.

Year’s Day twins grow up in?

What the

future holds

2040

By 2040, Christchurch’s

population is expected to be

between 449,000 and 459,000

based on a medium growth rate

by Stats NZ.

New Zealand will have about

six million people and about 1.4

million of Kiwis are likely to be

of Asian ethnicity.

The world’s population is

projected to grow to nine billion,

according to the United Nations.

It is currently estimated to be

around 7.5 billion.

New transport technologies

are also expected to make travel

easier and faster.

Aircraft manufacturer Boeing

says hypersonic planes travelling

at Mach 5 (5400km/h) could enter

service in the late 2030s. This

would mean people can travel

from London to Sydney in less

than six hours.

Plans are under way in the

United Arab Emirates to build

the first commercial Hyperloop

system and testing is set to begin

in 2021. Hyperloop is a mode

of transport where pods travel

through a low-pressure tube, using

electric propulsion.

It’s manufacturer, Virgin, says

the pods will float above a track

in the low-pressure tube using

magnetic levitation and will

glide at airline speeds at long distances,

connecting major cities.

Virgin’s space tourism venture,

Virgin Galactic is also expected

to be in operation, allowing

regular tourist flights to space.

Also in space travel, NASA is

planning its first manned mission

to Mars in the 2030s.

London-based data broker IHS

Markit forecasts that self-driving

cars will make up more than 26

per cent of new car sales across

the globe in 2040.

FUTURE: Boeing’s concept for a hypersonic aircraft, which could mean travel from

London to Sydney in six hours.

A number of countries have

agreed to stop selling new petrol

and diesel cars by 2040 in a

bid to reduce pollution, paving

the way for electric and hybrid

vehicles.

The world will also face a number

of environmental challenges

by 2040.

The UN predicts that half

of the world’s population will

face freshwater shortages from

2030.

The technological innovation

will also put a strain the planet’s

resources. The BBC reported in

2014 that China – the world’s

largest producer of rare earth

metals – will have depleted its

mines by the 2030s.

2060

By 2060, the world is likely to

have 10 billion people, and New

Zealand will have about 6.5 million

people.

English astronomer and physicist

Sir Isaac Newton predicted

in 1704 that the world as we

know it, will end in 2060.

But the good news for the

planet is, if current trends continue

the Earth’s ozone layer is

likely to fully heal by 2060, a UN

report said in November.

But due to temperature rises,

the United States National Oceanic

Atmospheric Administration

predicts the Arctic to have

its first ice free summer by 2050.

Oxford University Press

reported in 2013 that scientists

predicted medical advances by

2060 will allow organs to be

grown inside animals from human

cells, making organ replacements

more common.

Artificial Intelligence could

also advance significantly by

2060.

In a survey of 352 AI researchers

by Oxford and Yale Universities,

experts said that there is a

50 per cent chance that AI will

be able to perform all tasks better

than humans.

The global economy will

also see big changes by 2060,

according to the Organisation

for Economic Co-operation and

Development.

WARM: The Arctic could have its first ice free summer in 2050. Right – Islam is predicted

to be the world’s largest religion in 2080, overtaking Christianity. Pictured is the Al-Haram

Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

China and India’s combined

economies will be larger than the

entire developed world.

2080

By 2080, it is estimated that

10.8 billion people will live on

earth and New Zealand’s population

will near the seven million

mark.

A major shift in religion is also

predicted to happen according

to American think tank Pew

Research Centre.

They predicted that Islam will

overtake Christianity as the

world’s largest religion after 2070.

Currently, Christianity is the

world’s largest religion with 31.4

per cent of the world identifying

themselves Christian. Muslims

currently account for 23.2 per

cent of the population.

Those alive in 2080 will experience

a warmer planet, the UN

says. The global average temperature

is predicted to rise by 4 deg

C towards the latter years of the

century.

New Zealand’s average temperature

could also increase by

3.8 deg C by 2080, according to

the National Institute of Water

and Atmospheric Research.

2100

By now, the world population

will be about 11.4 billion.

The growth is primarily expected

to come from Africa and

a third of Europeans will be aged

60 or over, the UN says.

Lagos, Nigeria, is also likely to

be the biggest city in the world

with 88 million people, the

Global Cities Institute says.

According to a mathematical

study by the Massachusetts Institute

of Technology, earth will

begin experiencing a mass extinction

event due to increases in

carbon levels in the atmosphere

and ocean.

But the researchers say it won’t

happen overnight, and it may

take thousands of years to reach

extinction.

Study shows Kiwis are

okay with having one or

two drinks then driving

MOST NEW Zealanders have

no issue driving to and from the

bar and think it is fine to have

one or two drinks before driving

to another destination, a study

into drink-driving behaviour has

revealed.

This comes as drugs and

alcohol contributed to 80 fatal

crashes, 144 serious injury

crashes and 479 minor crashes in

2016, according to New Zealand

Transport Agency figures.

The study

headed by

Heineken,

as part of

its “when

you drive,

never drink”

Alex

Brackstone

campaign,

involved

five bars,

Pegasus Arms and Morrell &

Co in Christchurch, and three

in Auckland, across 1256 survey

respondents.

The study found having

“nudges,” or preventative measures,

in place will make people

think twice about getting behind

the wheel.

The study looked at drinkdriving

habits at bars on a usual

week of operation, then again a

week later with new measures in

place.

It found that 59 per cent, will

drive to a bar. Nine out of 10

drivers decided to drink and

drive before arriving at a bar.

A majority, 68 per cent, of drivers

said they were happy to have

one or two drinks before driving

to another destination.

After the survey, in Christchurch,

84 per cent of patrons were

driving home after drinking.

After intervention measures that

dropped to 82 per cent.

Pegasus Arms and Morrell

& Co owner Alex Brackstone

said that after 20 years in the

industry, he felt the landscape

of drink-driving had changed

dramatically.

The big change we see is that

the attitude has changed with the

older generation.”

Preparing for the first birthday

PHEW, ALMOST out of the

holiday season, almost.

We’ve had Christmas, New

Year and on Sunday we had the

Feast of the Epiphany, when Vittoria

got a sock full of treats from

the Christmas Witch/La Befana,

it’s an Italian thing.

We didn’t manage to burn the

traditional effigy but we did get

in a not-so-traditional feast of

fish ’n’ chips.

Now we’re back into the swing

of first birthdays. Starting this

Saturday with the most important

one (for me and Laura

anyway) – Vittoria’s.

No one tells you how many

first birthday parties you end up

going to after you have a kid, but

it makes a whole heap of sense

when you actually think about it.

It’s seemed like we’ve had one at

least every second weekend over

the last couple of months.

It’s great, they’re not quite

completely for the kids yet, so

they still have plenty to keep the

adults entertained too.

They’re the perfect blend of

your favourite finger foods from

childhood, kid’s party games and

the opportunity for extremely

responsible drinking.

I kind of feel like we’re cheating

with Vittoria’s since we’re

hosting it at an early learning

centre rather than at home, but

we’re certainly not skimping on

treats or birthday atmosphere.

I can’t believe she’s so close to

a year old. This time last year we

were preparing for her arrival via

caesarean at 10.31am on Friday,

January 12.

I’m not ashamed to admit that

in spite of my unflappably stiffupper-lipped

support of Laura

VITTORIA

& Matt

through the operation, I was a

blubbering wreck as soon as I

saw Vittoria.

Just under a week later we

brought her home, she was

such a quiet wee thing, mostly

sleeping. It was terrifying and

exciting.

I feel like I’m getting pretty

good at parenting, which is good

because she is no longer quiet or

prone to sleeping.

In fact over the last few days

she’s decided she doesn’t need

three naps a day anymore as she

is a big girl now, worked on polishing

her tantrum abilities and

shown signs of getting picky with

food (shudder).

But she’s still just as keen on

cuddles as she’s ever been, is

laughing lots and is always curious

about the world around her.

I hope those things don’t

change for a long while to come.

Bid to throw out

part of liquor

store appeal fails

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY council failed in a

first-ever bid to have parts of a

controversial liquor store appeal

thrown out.

Steven Crotty and Michael

Scott, who co-own Riccarton

Liquorland, want to open a new

store in the block of shops at the

intersection of Ferry and Aldwins

Rd in Phillipstown.

The district licensing committee

declined the application in May.

Riccarton Liquor Ltd is appealing

the decision on grounds

the licensing committee was

biased and had predetermined

its position before the hearing.

The city council applied to the

alcohol regulatory and licensing

authority to have the claims

struck out, saying there was no

bias or predetermination.

However, the authority said a

strike out would be “premature.”

City council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell said it

considered these grounds could

be disposed of separately from

the rest of the appeal.

He said it was the first time the

council had applied for a strike

out of an appeal against a licensing

decision.

QE II tops list for ‘code browns’

• By Sophie Cornish

CITY COUNCIL staff were kept

busy last year with 167 ‘code

browns’ closing pools across

Christchurch.

In spite of only opening on

May 31, Taiora: QE II Recreation

and Sport Centre has taken out

the ‘most poops’ title with 71

code browns and 33 vomiting

incidents. However, in defence

of the new facility, it has seven

pools.

The second biggest complex,

which has five pools, is Jellie Park

Recreation and Sport Centre.

But its outdoor pool also closes

during winter.

QE II has been popular since

opening and on 30 occasions

a one-in, one-out policy has

been applied to customers when

maximum capacity has been

reached.

City council head of recreation

sports and events Nigel Cox

believes QE II has the most

closures due to a significant

number of younger swimmers

who enjoy the multiple play

spaces.

Meanwhile, Graham Condon

with four pools, had 47 code

incidents – two more than 2017,

when there were 46 and 19

Jellie Park had 13 code browns

and 17 vomits – less than the 21

and 21 recorded in 2017.

Pioneer Recreation and Sport

Centre, which saw the highest

number of code browns in 2017,

had a much better 2018. There

were only 34 code browns and

six vomiting incidents in the last

year – compared to the 57 and 26

in 2017.

The city council provides

tips on its website on how to

ensure its pools stay open,

offering pointers for parents and

caregivers who should take extra

care when accompanying a child

to the pool.

The tips include allowing

food to settle before swimming,

making sure your child has been

to the toilet before entering the

pool and reminding your child

that it is okay to get out of the

pool to go to the toilet during

swimming lessons, just let their

tutor know.

If the water in the pool does

not meet the required quality

standard, the pool has to be

cleared of swimmers then treated

and cleaned.

Cleaning times vary for

different pools and facilities. It

can range from 40min for a spa

pool to 12hr 40min for a lane

pool.

News

• By Emily O’Connell

MADDIE COLLINS has

been doing “really well” since

returning home from Starship

Children’s Health in Auckland.

The 15-year-old was in

Starship for more than three

weeks leading up to Christmas to

try and determine what has been

causing a decline in her kidney

function.

Maddie, of West Melton, who

suffers from the kidney disease

nephrotic syndrome, underwent

a successful kidney transplant

last January.

Her mother, Sarah Manson-

Collins, said they flew back

home from Starship on

December 23, just in time for

Christmas. She said Maddie

is doing well and is enjoying

hanging out with friends, jetskiing

and horse riding.

Recent results from a kidney

biopsy showed Maddie is dealing

with kidney rejection. Mrs

Manson-Collins said Maddie has

been taking steroids, along with

other medication, in a bid to

reverse the rejection.

She said Maddie is having

regular blood tests and her

health will continue to be

monitored.

Maddie will undergo further

tests later this month, and the

results will determine whether

HOME: Maddie

Collins is

enjoying being

back in West

Melton after

spending

more than

three weeks

at Starship

Children’s

Health in

Auckland.

Maddie ‘well’ after scare

she will have to go back to

Starship.

Maddie and her family were

told on January 16 last year that

their five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found. They

flew to Auckland the following

day and Maddie underwent

an initial operation and then a

second operation to reposition

the kidney.

Maddie received a kidney

from her father Adam Collins

about six years ago but her body

rejected it. With only a two per

cent chance of finding a donor

match in New Zealand, the

family had not expected to

find another kidney in the

country.

Drone may have

been used to

spy on teens

• By Anan Zaki

A LOW-FLYING drone may

have been used to spy on teenage

girls over the holidays.

It was seen hovering over

Whero Ave, Diamond Harbour.

Anna Clinch, 14, was in a

swimming pool with a teenage

friend when she saw the drone.

She believed it was being used to

spy on them. The incident comes

as concerns over privacy and

safety around the use of drones

is on the increase.

On New Year’s Eve in

Auckland, a helicopter pilot

had to take evasive action after

coming across three drones. On

New Year’s Day, police Eagle

helicopter operations were

temporarily suspended after a

near miss with a drone, also in

Auckland. Last month, flights at

London’s Gatwick Airport were

suspended for three days after a

number of drone sightings.

Anna said the drone was

flying near power lines.

“It just hovered above the pool

while we were swimming for

about 30sec and we were really

concerned about it,” she said.

“We moved out of the way

because we thought it was a bit

bizarre and went inside. And the

drone continued to fly back and

forth over the house a couple of

times [before leaving].”

Anna doesn’t want the drone

operator to get in trouble, but

said they should keep away

from people’s properties. “Just

watch out because it’s kind of

weird that there’s a 14-year-old

in a pool and there’s a drone

hovering over us. We just don’t

want to be spied on in a pool.”

The Civil Aviation Authority

says drone operators must

have consent from the owner

of the property they want to fly

over. Breaches of privacy and

investigations are dealt with by

police.

The Star

Kendra Cocksedge

Top Black Fern at home in

Kendra Cocksedge

debuted for the Black

Ferns in 2007 at age 19.

Since then the halfback

has gone on to win two

Women’s Rugby World

Cups and a Rugby World

Cup Sevens title. Sophie

Cornish talks to her

about being named New

Zealand Rugby women’s

player of the year and

winning the Kelvin R

Tremain Memorial trophy

What was it like to be named

player of the year? Is it your

biggest achievement to date?

It was a pretty unreal moment,

obviously I didn’t think I

would ever win it. It was a huge

achievement for me. I was also

lucky enough in 2015 to win

World Rugby women’s player of

the year also, so that’s obviously

in the mix too.

But winning the Kelvin

Tremain to me, being the first

female in history, was a pretty

special time. I had no idea about

it. I knew I had been nominated

but I didn’t think I would ever

win it because a female never

had before. To hear my name

be called out, I was completely

stunned and speechless and

very overwhelmed about it all

afterwards.

Take me back to when it

all began, when did you first

become interested in rugby?

I was four-years-old when

I first started playing rugby.

I played up through with the

boys until I was year 9, then I

played for the New Plymouth

Girls’ High School XV. Then

I played representative school

girls for Taranaki and then

Hurricanes secondary schools.

Then I moved to Christchurch

in 2007 on a cricket scholarship

at Lincoln University. I studied a

Bachelor of Sport and Recreation

Management. I played rugby

for them as well, and then

that year – 2007 – was when

BREAK: Kendra Cocksedge on attack during the Black Ferns match against France in

November at Toulon.

I made the Black Ferns at age

19. Then everything has gone

from there. When I was young

I used to watch the All Blacks

and absolutely loved it. I went

down to rugby training with

some family friends one day

and I picked up a rugby ball and

never looked back. I loved every

minute. It was touch to start

with, then I went in to tackle at

age eight or nine. I played with

the boys, which was cool. I’m

from a small community up in

Taranaki and the boys were like

brothers to me; they looked out

for me and protected me.

What was it like growing

up in New Plymouth and

how was making the move to

Canterbury?

I was 18 and leaving home, it

was kind of scary at the time.

I’m glad I made the move, if I

was still back there the rugby

wouldn’t be the same and I

wouldn’t be where I am today.

It was a last minute decision in

year 13 doing exams and stuff,

thinking about what I wanted to

do in the next year and I applied

for the scholarship and it took

me to Lincoln. I always wanted

to study something in sport.

Lincoln was really good with

me making the Black Ferns in

2007, they were really supportive,

which is always cool.

What do you do outside of

playing rugby, do you work?

I work full-time for New

Zealand Rugby. My job is the

women’s rugby development

manager. I look after the whole

Crusaders region. My job is to

grow women’s and girls rugby.

It’s quite cool to give these young

girls the opportunity to play with

girls, whereas I didn’t really get to

do that.

My job is to get provincial

unions to get all-girls grades and

all-girls teams so they can play

against each other. I have been

working there for about three

years since January. It’s more

acceptable now for girls to play,

compared to when I started. It

was a bit like ‘girls shouldn’t play

rugby’, but I was always thankful

to my parents for letting me play.

It’s okay to play now and that’s

what’s cool. Sevens being in the

Olympics has helped a lot, young

girls now have role models to

look up to that they see on the

world stage. There is a lot more

exposure around it.

What are some of your other

hobbies?

I like doing a bit of mountain

biking and hanging out with

family and friends and relaxing,

enjoying the beach. Obviously,

growing up in Taranaki, you have

the beach at your front door and

I was always going to the beach.

I don’t do much cricket now, but

I am playing in the Black Clash

cricket game this summer. I need

to do some training for it because

I haven’t picked up a bat for a

long time, or a cricket ball even.

I was a bit of an all-rounder, a

mid-order batter and an opening

bowler. I’ll be in team rugby.

What has been the highlight

of your sporting career so far?

It’s a tough one, you love every

moment in any jersey, whether

it be provincial or the silver

fern on your chest. Probably

winning World Cups, I have

won two out of three that I have

been to. It’s hard to pinpoint just

one moment, though. With our

Canterbury women’s team we

won the title back-to-back, so

that was pretty special for us.

Do you have any standout

funny moments in your rugby

career?

I had one when I debuted for

the Black Ferns in Wanganui.


The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Thursday January 10 2019 17

Crusaders country

There was about 4min to go and I

got on the field and I put the ball in

the wrong side of the scrum. I had a

mind-blank. I was very nervous on

debut, we had just sung the anthem,

something I had never done before. It

was emotional and then I just put the

ball in the wrong side of the scrum.

It was something I had never done

before but just happened to do it when

I was on debut. We were winning by a

few points and I think my teammates

didn’t want to be mean to me so they

didn’t tease me. It’s never happened

again and it never will.

Do you have a strict nutrition and

training regime?

We tend to all want to eat healthy

when you are doing training and

playing, as you tend to perform

better. There are some of us who are

pretty good with that and others have

nutrition guidelines in terms of what

they are eating.

A majority of the team has no

strict rules, it’s just everything in

moderation. During the season, we do

something every day, some days are

for recovery. You have to train before

work and get up early around 5.30

then go to work, then train at night

and get home around 8-8.30. It’s very

busy but I love it.

How do you feel about the pay

you get? Do you think it is fair you

have to work full-time when the

equivalent men’s players don’t have

to?

I don’t think it is unfair. We are

making progress, we on contract now

and that’s a start. We can only move

forward from that now. Until we get

more exposure from the media, more

bums on seats at games, and more

sponsors and all that kind of stuff,

then we can move forward from there.

But at the moment, that’s not the case

and there will be more money there in

the future.

A lot has changed since I got into

the Black Ferns team in 2007, so that’s

been great and I am grateful from

where we have come from and where

we are going to. The older girls who

played back in the day have paved the

way for us.

Looking forward to the future,

what are your plans?

It has motivated me to work harder.

When you get awards like that, it

means you need to train harder. I am

on 47 caps for the Black Ferns and I

want to get to 50. I want to get there

this year, so that’s motivating me to

train hard and keep on top of my

game. The only other person to get 50

caps is the captain Fiao’o Fa’amausili,

who is now retired. She’s the only one.

If that was to happen, I would be the

second woman.

I’m going to keep going until my

body tells me not to. I want to make

the team this year, get 50 caps, then

decide whether I want to play the

next World Cup in New Zealand

in 2020.

Are you married or

do you have a partner?

What is your family

like?

Not at the moment,

it’s me, myself and I.

I have three sisters,

along with my mum

and dad. I have

been spending a lot

of time with them

over the holidays.

I’ve got a really

good group of

friends and great

flatmates who look

after me.

in his homeland long for his

performance at Selwyn Sounds –

but his first New Zealand gig in

five years will recharge him, he

says.

The Upper Hutt-born rocker

will fly out the day after Selwyn

Sounds, which takes place on

March 2, to meet commitments

at the Red Hot Summer Tour

in Australia. Stevens said the

Australian tour organisers had

tried to convince him to pull out

of Selwyn Sounds.

“I said ‘no way’. I’m not going

to opt out of a New Zealand show,

sorry boys,” he said.

As well as a “frantic” live

performance schedule this year,

Stevens said he started work on

his 11th album in January, with a

view to release it in mid-2019.

It will feature his latest song,

ON STAGE: Jon Stevens will

perform at Selwyn Sounds

in March.

Rain Down On Me, released on

October 26 to support droughtstricken

farmers in Australia.

He also performed at the Hay

Mate concert on October 27,

which raised money for Australian

charity Rural Aid.

“It was great to be a part of it

and help people,” Stevens said.

He said the song, written in

January, fitted the situation as it

spoke of a struggle, but also of

hope on the horizon. All proceeds

from the song go to Rural Aid.

“I’m just going to give it to the

farmers and they can have every

single cent that comes from it.

That’s my way to help.”

Although he visited family in

Queenstown last year, the last

time he performed in New Zealand

was 2013 when he opened for

Aerosmith in Dunedin as part of

the Global Warming Tour.

Stevens said he was most

looking forward to “recharging”

himself by reconnecting with his

homeland.

“Just putting my feet on the soil

again, you know?”

The youngest of 11, Stevens said

he had “whanau for days” and

hoped to fit in a catch-up.​

“I’ve got a few cousins in

Christchurch, so I’ll catch up with

them, get a boil-up going. I’ll be

sweet.”

Stevens’ career took off at the

age of 16 in 1980 with the release

of Jezebel, which topped the New

Zealand charts at the time.

Since then, the performer has

released 10 studio albums, including

band and solo work, working

alongside some of the most wellknown

names in the music industry.

Stevens said he found it “cute”

that New Zealand fans still asked

to hear his early releases “from

my teenage era” and planned to

keep his set list fluid and respond

to the crowd.

“Of course, we’ll play what the

people want. I might play one new

song. I’ll cross that bridge when I

come to it,” he said.

•Selwyn Sounds will be

on Saturday, March 2, at the

Lincoln Domain.

•Tickets are available at

www.selwynsounds.co.nz.

•Jon Stevens’ latest

song Rain Down On Me

is available on iTunes. All

Gardening

GARDENING ADVICE

Last year, my peach tree had leaf problems and I sprayed copper and it worked. This year, I am having problems with

my plum tree and its leaves are twisted and there is only one plum on the entire tree. Is this due to the continuous rain

Q or weather? Please suggest what should I spray?

A

Today’s winning question came from Suraj Narang. Congratulations!

Unfortunately, over the past two springs, many

parts of NZ have experienced heavy and continuous

rainfall with a disastrous effect on the pollination of

plum trees.

Bees find it exceptionally difficult to work in these

conditions as wet pollen is very hard to distribute from tree

to tree. The end result is an apparent lack of pollination and

therefore little or no fruit set.

Unfortunately, there is little you can do - even hand pollinating

is difficult in wet conditions as the wet pollen will not adhere to

a small paint brush.

Hopefully in the next few years the spring weather will improve,

allowing for pollination of your plum tree.

The disfigurement of your tree’s leaves is in no way related

to the poor cropping. It is quite normal for some leaves on all

plum trees to be misshapen and/or

partially eaten by a number of insects,

especially bronze beetles. You could spray with a good quality

horticultural oil to keep pests at bay.

To keep your fruit trees healthy, mulch around the tree with

Daltons Mulch & Grow. Apply Garden Time Fruit & Citrus

Fertiliser out to the tree drip line from mid-February through

until autumn. Recommence applications in early spring (when

plants are coming into growth) until mid-December.

For more gardening advice and tips, check out our How to

Grow guides at www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

$95

PRIZE

PACK!

Regular mulching throughout the hot summer months is vital in helping you maintain a

lush, healthy garden. Apply a thick layer on top of soil around plants, trees and especially

pots, to aid water retention. Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day when plants

are heat stressed; instead water regularly and deeply in the early morning or evening.

We have a $95 Daltons Summer Garden Survival Pack to giveaway including: 2x Garden

Time Landscape Bark 40L, 2x Besgrow Coir Briquette, 2x Garden Time Compost 40L, Garden

Time Complete Fertiliser 5kg, Garden Time Fruit & Citrus Fertiliser 1.5kg, Daltons Water Storage

Tarragon is a hardy herb

• By Henri Ham

A KEEN vege gardener will

often try to grow a few new

veges each year.

And I believe the same

should apply to herbs. The

classics of parsley, chives and

basil will always have a place

in gardeners’ kitchens. But

how about testing your greenfingers

out on some russian

tarragon this summer?

Russian tarragon is a hardy

perennial herb. Its taste can

be likened to a cross between

parsley and chervil (french

parsley).

It’s quite a lanky plant and

can grow up to 80cm tall. It

has slender stems, covered in

skinny green leaves.

Often confused with french

tarragon, the Russian variety

is hardier and more vigorous.

Both types have a distinctive

sweet aniseed flavour, but the

Russian variety is milder. And

most importantly (well, arguably),

the Russian type is easier

to grow as well.

Tarragon flavour is suited

to chicken and fish. Sprinkle

over a whole roast chicken, or

fresh fish. Also use sparingly

to shake over poached eggs,

fresh asparagus and roasted

potatoes.

Tarragon is the key herb

ingredient in bearnaise sauce –

and is also a popular herb used

in flavouring vinegars. You’ll

also find tarragon in tartare

sauce, alongside capers.

Tarragon likes a fertile,

sunny and well-drained spot in

your garden. Because it grows

higher than most edibles, place

it at the back of your vege or

herb garden. Once you’ve

found your perfect spot to

plant your seedlings, dig in

some compost and blood and

bone fertiliser.

Now you’re ready to plant.

Dig holes roughly 3cm deep

and space the seedlings in

them, 45cm apart. Give them

a good initial watering. But

don’t over fertilise, as this can

makes the leaves thicker, which

reduces their flavour.

You can also plant tarragon

in pots. Use a large pot to avoid

the tarragon becoming root

bound – as this can reduce the

flavour of the herb.

BARBECUE CHICKEN

WITH GRILLED

VEGETABLES

Ingredients

•For the chicken

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp finely grated lemon zest

3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 large garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

2 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano

1/2 tsp freshly ground black

pepper

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

6 chicken thighs fillets

Salt to taste

•For the vegetables and garnish

1 medium onion, halved and cut

into 12 wedges

1 medium zucchini, cut into 1cm

slices

1 medium eggplant, cut into 1cm

slices

2 medium portobello

mushrooms, each cut into 2cm

slices

3-4 large red capsicums

2-3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil,

plus some for drizzling

Salt and freshly ground black

pepper to taste

Balsamic vinegar for drizzling

100g soft goat cheese or feta

cheese, crumbled

Fresh oregano sprigs and lemon

slices for garnish

Directions

Combine the first nine

ingredients in a bowl large

enough to hold the chicken.

Add the chicken and turn to

coat.

Cover, refrigerate and marinate

chicken for four to eight hours,

turning occasionally.

When chicken has marinated,

preheat your barbecue to

medium-high, about 200 deg C

in the chamber.

Place onions, zucchini,

eggplant, mushrooms and

capsicum on large baking sheet.

Drizzle vegetables with twothree

Tbsp olive oil, season with

salt and pepper and turn to coat.

Grill the vegetables in batches,

2min per side, or until tender

and lightly charred.

Set cooked vegetables back

on the baking sheet. Season the

chicken with salt, and then set on

the barbecue. Grill the chicken

for 2-3min per side, or until the

exterior is nicely coloured.

Move the chicken to one side

of the barbecue. Turn the heat

off on that side of the barbecue;

leave the other side at mediumhigh.

Close the barbecue lid and

cook the chicken, turning it from

time to time, for about 30min

or until cooked through and

the temperature of the chicken

pieces is about 74 deg C when

checked with an instant-read

meat thermometer.

When chicken is 20min from

being cooked, heat your oven to

180 deg C.

When chicken is 10min from

being cooked, pop your grilled

vegetables into the oven for 5min

until hot again.

Arrange the vegetables on a

large platter. Drizzle vegetables

with olive oil and balsamic

vinegar. Set some crumbled

pieces of goat cheese (or feta) on

and around the vegetables.

Now arrange the cooked pieces

of chicken on or around the

vegetables. Garnish with oregano

sprigs and lemon slices, and

serve.

HOW TO COOK PERFECT

PORK SAUSAGES ON

THE BARBECUE

Ingredients

Handcrafted pork sausages

1 onion chopped

Sauerkraut

Mustard

Directions

Give the sausages a minute

or two over high heat. This is to

brown them.

After a minute or so on both

sides, turn the heat on your grill

down to medium.

Arrange your sausages as far

from the heat source as possible

and close the lid if you can.

Allow the barbecue to roast

the meat.

The sausages will cook

in 10-15min depending

on their thickness. It’s very

handy to have an instant-read

thermometer here.

Remove the sausages from

the grill once they reach an

interior temperature of 160

deg C.

Serve with good rolls, lots

of chopped onion, sauerkraut,

mustard, and even little

mayonnaise and tomato sauce.

Sport

Jack of all trades honoured

• By Gordon Findlater

IN THE sporting realm there’s

not much that Barry Gardiner

hasn’t done.

The 81-year-old who celebrated

his birthday earlier this week was

recognised for his achievements

by being named in the New Year

Honours List as a member of the

New Zealand Order of Merit.

Rather than sitting back and

relaxing on the back of the nod,

Gardiner is doing what he does

best. He’s played 10 rounds of

golf in the last 12 days, is swimming

and playing squash regularly,

and is currently riding the

bike most days as he trains for

the 47km Motatapu mountain

bike race from Wanaka to Arrowtown

in March.

“It’s quite a tough course but I

go in it most years because I get

the prize for the oldest finisher

which is a bottle of wine . . . it’s

good stuff as well, Central Otago

pinot noir,” said Gardiner.

You could say Gardiner has

peaked late. In recent times he’s

won squash world titles in the

over 50, 60 and 70 categories.

In his younger days he was one

of the South Island’s top rugby

league and union players until a

serious knee injury in 1965 while

playing for the Hanan Shield

team (a mid-Canterbury, South

Canterbury and North Otago

combined team) against the

Springboks.

Gardner holds a unique record

of having played four different

positions against France in two

different codes in the space of a

year.

In 1960 he played for the South

Island in a rugby league match

against the French. He started in

the forwards. However, 20min

into the game the South Island

halfback was injured. With no

replacements in those days he

played the rest of the match at

halfback.

The following year he represented

South Canterbury

against France. After starting at

flanker he finished the match at

first five-eighths due to another

injury.

Gardiner never played internationally

in either code. However,

he came as close as you possibly

can in 1958 when he was selected

as the emergency forward for

the Kiwis ahead of a test against

Great Britain.

There was a guy by the name

of Jack Jones who was the prop

selected from Canterbury and

he ended up breaking his finger.

When they found out he couldn’t

play we only had six forwards

and I was included . . . on the

Friday night they announced the

team and they bought in a big

prop from Auckland so everyone

got dropped back one and I

ended up being the emergency,

so I missed out.”

Before moving to Timaru,

Gardiner was part of a very successful

West Coast league team.

“In 1960 we played Auckland

in Auckland and beat them . . .

there was probably about 11 or

12 coasters in the South Island

team that same year and beat

the North Island team in Greymouth,”

said Gardiner.

“We used to beat Canterbury

regularly. It was a good era for

West Coast rugby league. If you

look at where it is on the coast

now it’s a shame. They’ve lost all

their big miners and timber people

which was their strike force

for rugby league.”

Gardiner also played cricket for

the West Coast as a wicket-keeper,

including an unsuccessful Hawke

Cup challenge against Nelson.

While living in the West Coast

he also won the shot put title at

the Canterbury junior athletics

championships in dramatic

fashion.

The West Coast athletes

travelled by bus on Friday for

FAMILY SUCCESS: In 2016, Gardiner won

the 75-plus national title, his son-in-law

Grant Craig (left) won the 50-plus title and

son Dave Gardiner (right) won the 40-plus

title. Two weeks earlier his granddaughter

Megan Craig won the NZ open women’s

title.

the Saturday event. However, a

storm closed roads to Christchurch

meaning the bus didn’t

arrive at Lancaster Park until the

event was well under way.

“We ran across to the shot put

and it had just finished. The official

said: ‘Look I’m sorry but you’re

too late we’ve just finished it.’ We

explained the situation and he said

you can have one throw and it’s

going to have to be right now. I was

still in my street clothes, I picked

it up did my best Parry O’Brien

technique. It flew out of my hand

and I ended up winning it.”

In terms of the many highlights

Gardiner holds a world

over-50 squash title in 1991 as his

greatest achievement.

“I never knew I had that in me.”

The squash court is also where

Gardiner’s most hilarious sporting

moment occurred.

“I was warming for my match

and was in my track pants on. I

went off to take my track pants

off, came back on the court

started the game and the crowd

starting laughing, I looked down

to see I was standing there in my

undies. I had forgot to put my

shorts under my track pants.”

Off the field Gardiner has been

involved as an administrator

at club, district, national and

TWO YEARS ago Cheviot

were struggling to put together

a team in the second tier of

country cricket, now they’re

a win away from representing

Canterbury at the national club

championships.

After gaining promotion

to the Canterbury country

premier competition in 2017,

they went on to win the one-day

competition last year.

On Sunday they defeated

South Canterbury champs

Temuka and will now face

Christchurch metro winners St

Albans for a spot in the national

week-long tournament in

Auckland in April.

Cheviot’s rise to prominence

has come about due to a

combination of former junior

players returning to the club

after high school, such as

captain Harry Fitzpatrick, who

has represented Canterbury at

under-19 level.

They have also been aided

by some smart recruiting

from Sidey brothers, with Les Henry Mills

in 1967.

them at their boyhood club

following school. A large chunk

of Cheviot’s team is now made

up of players who were part of

CBHS’s back-to-back Gillette

Cup-winning teams of 2016 and

2017.

“Boys’ High finished their

season and then my cousins

grabbed Ben Hartland and Jack

Harris to come and play for us.

A few of us older boys were keen

to let the young guys take over,

so they brought more of them

out,” said club vice-president

Sam Sidey.

The latest CBHS product to

make the move to Cheviot is

promising rugby and cricket

star Louie Chapman, who is

set to debut for the team at the

weekend.

The connection to CBHS

doesn’t end there. The school’s

coach Mark Lane has also

recently started working with

the premier team.

“I think it’s all about playing

with your mates . . . they have

a bloody good time off the field

and I think that makes its way

onto the field,” said Sidey.

Cheviot have made a major

transition from three years ago

when lettuce-pickers and other

seasonal workers in the area,

with little cricket experience,

would often help make up

numbers.

The standard of cricket

in the Canterbury country

competition has improved

immensely over the last couple

of years . . . you go back three

or four years ago and you

would never hear of these

young guns like Ben Hartland

or Louie Chapman thinking

about coming out to play in the

country,” said Sidey.

Cheviot will go into the final

next Sunday as considerable

underdogs against a classy St

Albans outfit.

St Albans created history last

month by becoming the first

team to win 10 premier oneday

Christchurch metro titles.

Cheviot are currently third in

the Canterbury country one-day

competition with three wins and

two losses.

“As a group, we’re quietly

confident but we’re going to take

the underdog tag into the game,”

said Sidey.

American teen to

make Ruapuna debut

• By Allan Batt

VISITS BY overseas sprintcar

drivers to Christchurch have

been few and far between in

recent years.

But one of the United States’

brightest prospects will make

his Ruapuna debut on Sunday

as part of a month-long South

Island tour.

Seventeen-year-old Michael

‘Buddy’ Kofoid, of Penngrove

California, has an amazing

resume for someone barely old

enough to hold a driver’s licence.

But he is already something of a

racing veteran, having won his

first sprintcar feature race aged

just 11.

Like many US racers, he

started off in outlaw karts at a

very early age, notching up more

than 120 career feature wins

before moving into winged 360

sprintcars. Many compare his

accomplishments to NASCAR

front-runner Kyle Larsen,

who also started his career in

‘small town’ California, racing

in karts before progressing to

850 horsepower sprintcars at a

young age.

In 2017, Kofoid became the

youngest driver to win the

iconic Johnny Key Classic,

one of northern California’s

biggest sprintcar races with a

58-year history. In September,

he confounded the pundits by

setting the fastest qualifying

at Chico, California, along with

winning a heat race and trophy

position in a field littered with

top US drivers.

the hot favourites to take out

winning two races and standing

on the podium 10 times across

15 races.

He says the title should have

been his – and this time he aims

to make sure it is.

“I’m here to drive and I enjoy

all the circuits here in New

Zealand. I want to make good

next season in the US mid-west

region.

Kofoid will be racing a car

owned by Te Anau’s Daniel

Anderson who has competed

against the youngster several

times in the US.

Kofoid’s schedule will see him

return to Ruapuna for the Gold

Cup later this month and he

will contest the New Zealand

Sprintcar Championship at

Cromwell.

the title will be 39C Andrew

Buchanan and Denny Cox.

They have spent a considerable

amount of time racing in what

is regarded as the hot-bed of

sidecar speedway racing in

Australia, finishing on the

podium at the 2018 Australian

title, the FIM Oceania sidecar

championship and the FIM

sidecar World Cup.

Both FIM events are

international meetings, with

the top sidecar pairings from

Australia, New Zealand, the

United Kingdom, United States

and France taking part.

on last year’s last lap loss,” said

Armstrong.

The Tatuus single-seaters used

in the TRS are levellers in terms

of pace and set-up, meaning

teams and drivers are evenly

matched. And Armstrong says

the top drivers will be pushing

each other at every opportunity.

WHEN THE Toyota Racing

Series starts in Cromwell at

the weekend, it will be the

latest example of Christchurch

becoming a second-tier

destination for sporting events.

When it comes to household

names, it’s hard to find many

Canterbury trophies in the same

league as the Lady Wigram

Trophy.

The likes of Jack Brabham,

Stirling Moss, Bruce McLaren,

Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Jochen

Rindt, Graham McRae, Ken

Smith, Larry Perkins and Paul

Radisich have had their names

etched into the trophy on the

other side of the millennium.

For the past four years, the

trophy has been raced for as part

of the TRS. The international

stature of the series means the

trophy hasn’t dropped its prestige

in recent times. In 2015, it was

won by Canadian racer Lance

Stroll, who currently drives in

formula one.

However, this weekend the

trophy will not be raced for

due to the TRS moving its first

round of the championship to

Highlands Motorsport Park in

Cromwell.

It goes against a two-year

agreement which series promoter

Speedworks and the Canterbury

Car Club made in 2017.

It’s now the latest blow to

Christchurch’s reputation as a

holder of sporting events.

When you consider the All

Blacks won’t play a test here

until at least 2020, it’s hard not

to argue we’ve become a secondtier

destination. The fact Nelson

hosted the All Blacks last year

could even lead you to say we’ve

dropped to the third-tier.

Now Cromwell – previously

known to Christchurch residents

as a popular spot to get sunburnt

over the new year – has become

the latest town to steal a major

sporting event off us.

The trophy could still be raced

for this year if the Canterbury

Car Club decides to put it on the

line during the formula 5000

programme at the popular Skope

meeting at Ruapuna next month.

However, if that’s the case, it

will undoubtedly be another

year in which the reputation of

the trophy has been tainted by

the class of the field compared to

those of yesteryear.

With the trend we’re on, it is

becoming increasingly easy to

become cynical when it comes

to Christchurch’s reputation for

sporting events.

Don’t worry though folks, we’re

about to get our biggest event of

the summer later this month at

Hagley Oval, when some of our

All Blacks play cricket against a

group of cricketers who reached

their prime 10-20 years ago. Let

Skoda Octavia Scout

makes life easy

AS AGE has caught

up with me, it must be

said understanding the

electronics and finer

points of any new car is

becoming more and more

challenging.

That being the case, I

find it quite a conquest

when I can climb in and

instantly set the air conditioning

to my preferred settings,

find the Sound FM

radio station and zero the

trip meter.

That doesn’t always happen

quickly, in some cars it

takes time to work through

the complexities of the

operating systems. Not so

in the Skoda Octavia Scout,

I jumped in and had those

three prerequisites mastered

in less than a minute,

which sent a clear message

that the car is intuitive and

user-friendly to operate,

and I like that.

That’s not the only reason

I warmed to the Octavia

Scout, it is the quintessential

mid-size station wagon.

I once had a Mazda 323

wagon as a work car, and

I found it one of the most

useful forms of transport I

could have on a daily basis.

Sadly, only a few manufacturers

still produce the

traditional wagon and fewer

still that make smallish

wagons. That aside, the load

space in the Scout is amazing.

It measures 610-litres

to 1740-litres with the rear

seats folded flat.

In real terms I can report

it came in very handy during

the time my daughter

was in the process of moving

abode. I used the Scout

to transport many of her

belongings and found it

incredibly practical, a lot of

the latter due to the small

recess on the boot floor

which creates just that bit

extra load space.

The Scout lands here

with three engine options;

well, the 2-litre diesel

model has the same engine

but with different power

outputs – 110kW or

135kW – the other engine

is a 1.8-litre petrol unit.

The evaluation car was

the lower powered diesel

but, while I say that, it’s

my belief it is perfectly

adequate for the role, I

can’t imagine that any

more power is necessary.

In true turbocharged diesel

fashion, the 1968cc engine

develops a hearty 340Nm

available all of the way

from 1750rpm to 3000rpm.

As a consequence, the

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

SKODA SCOUT: Simple to understand.

Scout in this form still

develops strong performance.

Acceleration is

crisp, and throttle response

is instant, there’s no sign

of turbo lag and with it

coupled to a seven-speed

direct shift transmission

there is direct drive and

quick shifts.

That’s one of the advantages

of direct shift transmission,

it doesn’t eat away

at those precious power

figures.

• Price – Skoda

Octavia Scout,

$48,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4687mm;

width, 1814mm;

height, 1531mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

1968cc,

110kW, 340Nm,

seven-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage –

5.2l/100km

Against the clock the

Scout will reach 100km/h

from a standstill in 9.3sec,

and will make a highway

lunge to 120km/h from

80km/h in 6sec, the latter

a result of the healthy midrange

performance of the

modern diesel and it is a

hugely rewarding feeling.

As you would expect,

the Scout also has amazing

fuel economy. The

manufacturers claim a 5.2-

litre per 100km (54mpg)

combined cycle rating.

That sits well with the

6.8l/100km (41mpg) showing

on the test car’s trip

computer, along with a

frugal 4l/100km (70mpg)

instantaneous readout at

100km/h, the engine just

loping over at 1400rpm.

These figures are no

surprise, I’ve driven with

this engine many times

before in other Skoda and

Volkswagen product, it is a

beauty, with quiet operating

manners and efficiency

as good as it gets.

I took the test car on

one of my normal routes

through the Selwyn District

– Dunsandel to Hororata

– and enjoyed its quiet

operating manner and the

comfortable way it treats its

occupants over a distance.

The Scout is no racer,

nor is it intended to be; it

is honest everyday transport.

I pushed it hard into

a couple of quick corners

and it responds with accuracy

through the front end

and strong steering feel.

Providing the grip are high

quality Michelin Primacy

tyres (225/50 x 17in), and

they have a solid footprint

with the road surface.

Skoda have sprung the

Octavia Scout with softish

settings, but because there

is little weight in the vehicle

and with a low centre of

gravity – the Scout is only

1.5m tall – there is little

handling trade-off, comfort

and ability has been a high

manufacturing criteria.

Yet there is another surprise

with the Scout, it has

four-wheel-drive. With just

171mm of ground clearance,

it can’t be considered

an off-road vehicle, however,

I took the test car

onto a cross-country track

to take photos and was

impressed with its suspension

control and in-cabin

comfort over some gnarly

bumps and ruts. I can see

it as a good alternative to

the mainstream cars which

tackle the skifield access

roads over winter.

Not only did I put the

Scout to good use during the

time it was in my care, but it

also reinforced my desire for

the 2-litre diesel engine.

Sadly, not enough Kiwi

buyers warm to diesel,

and I still can’t quite figure

that out. The Scout in this

form would certainly be

a car I would consider as

a functional form of daily

transport and at $48,990

how could you go wrong?

Seven things you

should ask a lawyer

when buying a house

Most people know that it’s a good idea to seek advice from a lawyer when

buying a property. If you’re signing a binding legal document that involves

the biggest financial transaction you’ll probably ever make, it makes sense to

engage an expert to help.

However, a lawyer or conveyancer isn’t just there to dot the i’s and cross

the t’s on the contract. You should see them as a valuable source of support

throughout the property buying process, not just someone to push the

paperwork through at the last minute. Things can move fast in property

transactions so it’s smart to start talking to a lawyer as soon as you start

looking through ‘for sale’ ads. Here’s what to ask them in the first instance:

1. Are you a conveyancing specialist?

It might seem obvious, but you really do

want a lawyer that specialises in property

transactions and knows the ins-and-outs

of what you’re wanting to do. You may

already have a great family lawyer, but if

this isn’t an area they specialise in, then look

elsewhere – you could even ask them for a

recommendation.

2. How much do you charge?

Different lawyers and conveyancers have

different fee structures, and pricing can

vary dramatically, so it pays to have a clear

understanding of what they will charge you

from the get-go, and when it will be due.

3. What clauses should I add?

Your sale and purchase agreement can

include clauses, such as a finance clause that

means the offer is subject to you getting loan

pre-approval from your bank. Talk to your

lawyer about your individual circumstances

and what clauses should be included in your

contract, to best protect yourself. Talking

about this early on will save you time when it

comes to making an offer and the real estate

agent or salesperson asks what clauses you’d

like in the agreement.

4. Can you explain the LIM to me?

A LIM is a council file that includes all the

information held about a particular property.

These files can be chunky, complex and full

of very detailed information about resource

consents, zoning information, natural

features that affect a property (like flooding)

and more. Ask your lawyer or conveyancer to

look over these documents and explain them

to you, so you fully understand all aspects of

the information. Your lawyer will know what

to watch out for when reading through the

documents and is the best person to spot any

red flags for you.

5. What do I need to know about a unit title

property?

If you are buying a unit title property, the

seller must provide you with certain sets

of information. Talk to your lawyer about

the information you are entitled to and ask

their advice on whether you should seek any

further information.

6. Will you check my sale and purchase

agreement before I sign it? Don’t sign

anything before your lawyer or conveyancer

has read over it. Remember, a sale and

purchase agreement is a legally binding

document and there’s no going back once

you have signed on the dotted line. Buying

a home is a big financial decision, so it’s well

worth taking the time to ensure you’ve done

your due diligence and received the advice

you need.

7. What will happen on settlement day?

Settlement day is when the property transfer

goes ahead, and the house becomes yours.

This day is the culmination of a lot of hard

work and stress, but before you pop the

champagne, several things need to happen

in sequence between your lawyer, the seller’s

lawyer, and your bank or lender. This can

take time, so it’s a good idea not to be sitting

outside the home at 9am with a moving

truck. You can find a helpful settlement

checklist on settled.govt.nz, the independent

government website for buyers and sellers.

If you’re not sure where to find a

lawyer, you can ask family or friends for

recommendations or check out www.

propertylawyers.org.nz (part of the New

Zealand Law Society) to find one in your

area.
