Peace train ride for terror survivor

• By Sophie Cornish

MAZHARUDDIN Syed

Ahmed’s story is one of a

miracle.

A miracle he wasn’t

killed during the terror

attack on the Linwood Islamic

Centre on March 15.

Now Mr Ahmed is

organising a cycle ride

with friend Meg Christie

(above), called the Peace

Train, to strengthen bonds

between different religious

faiths.

The father-of-two was praying

in the front row at the centre

when the terrorist opened fire

and shot dead the man to his

left.

Mr Ahmed ran to a small

room nearby and took what

cover there was in a corner.

The gunman followed, shooting

other people also in the room.

He then ran out of ammunition;

the gunman turned away and

went outside to his car to

reload.

posts

• By Sophie Cornish

POLICE WITH armed back-up

are continuing to door-knock

people who are posting what is

regarded as anti-Muslim material

online.

A former probation officer

was visited by police who said

he had posted anti-Muslim and

anti-Government messages

online, and asked if he had

firearms.

Peter Daly said they left his

Rangiora home after about 10

minutes.

They were standing at the gate.

We argued like hell and I said:

‘You’re not coming in here, you’re

accusing me’. . . two of them could

have come here and spoken to me

nicely. All my neighbourhood is

wondering what the hell is going

on,” he said.

Mr Daly said he was unable

to apply for a firearms licence

because he has a criminal record,

and is questioning why he was

targeted by police.

He asked police for evidence

he was posting anti-Muslim and

anti-Government material. He

said police were unable to produce

any.

Mr Daly’s Facebook page

has postings about Islam and

Muslims.

WAS THIS armed police

officer riding shotgun when

the under-siege Crusaders flew

into Christchurch Airport from

South Africa this week?

Was she sent out to deter the

potential media horde waiting

to interview players accused of

misdemeanours in the republic?

Apparently not. This photo,

taken by a news photographer,

appeared on Stuff this week.

The Canterbury Rugby Football

Union and police say nothing

should be read into it.

Said a CRFU spokeswoman:

The police officer is a personal

friend of our logistics manager

and was simply doing a good

deed when she saw him, by

offering to push a trolley of our

gear bags at the airport.

“You can see our logistics

manager (former policeman

John Miles) in the background

juggling the other two! There

was nothing more to it than a

great story about police lending

a helping hand!”

Police offered a similar

response: “This officer was

simply helping out with moving

some of the team’s luggage

when they came in. We often

will help people with moving

their luggage when need be.”

So what was the rest of the

AN ARANUI man had

After Bevan Allington posted

onto his Pages Rd property and

taking the 1977 Zephyr caravan,

he started receiving messages.

Mr Allington had also asked

for information about the

whereabouts of the caravan.

Said the messages from an

cheap. Has to be now, you have

to be alone and I’m not far from

“You’ve only got until ten past

message.”

He then received messages

‘Oh no, this is something big’

•From page 1

In that fraction of a second,

fate, luck was on Mr Ahmed’s

side.

Mr Ahmed says he has been

overwhelmed and “totally

moved” by the outpouring of

gestures, love, care and concern

for the Muslim community.

Now he wants to promote

love, unity, peace and inter-faith

dialogue by combining it with

another of his passions – cycling.

The Ara architecture tutor

will help lead a memorial cycle

ride on Sunday named the Peace

Train, along with two friends,

Canterbury District Heath Board

health promoter Meg Christie

and Winter Solstice Ride founder,

Ian Wells.

The event’s name was inspired

by Yusuf Islam, formerly known

as Cat Stevens, and his song,

Peace Train.

“Why can’t we use cycling to

promote inter-faith dialogue and

come together to do something

and keep this momentum going?

New Zealand has beautifully presented

how hate can be addressed

with love,” said Mr Ahmed.

The event, which will take

participants on a 10km ride to

several faith-based sites in and

around central city, has come

together in a matter of weeks.

It will start at the Al Noor

Mosque on Deans Ave, scene of

the first terror attack, and end at

the Linwood mosque.

Anyone can take part in the

ride which will also travel to the

Buddhist Temple, Hari Krishna

Temple, the Jewish Synagogue,

St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, Oxford

Terrace Baptist Church, the

Transitional Cathedral and the

Salvation Army Citadel.

At each site a two-minute

greeting, peace message and

blessing will be given.

Mr Ahmed moved to New Zealand

in 2013 with his wife Sarah

and two children, Huda, 15, and

Umar, 11.

On March 15, like any other

day, Mr Ahmed cycled to the

Linwood mosque.

It was during prayer when he

heard three gunshots ring out.

“I was waiting because there

was a pause . . . immediately after

three seconds I started to hear

five or six shots and that’s when

I said: ‘Oh no, this is something

big.’ Because the gun shots were

rapid and I knew it wasn’t a pistol

or handgun,” he said.

“When people saw my friend

getting shot they started to break

the prayer and take cover. Everyone

started screaming.

“By the time he came in (to the

nearby room) he was very calm

very steady, well in control. For

someone who had shot people,

run over bodies and driven

the car that fast, you think you

would have an adrenaline rush,

you think you would be running

around like crazy, but this guy

was absolutely rock steady.”

Mr Ahmed said he started

shooting at people in the room.

“He was ‘double-tapping’ people.

He would shoot them, then

when they were dropping down,

he would shoot them again.

“Right in front of me he shot

the lady and another of my

friends, and again when he shot

them, they dropped down and he

went to shoot a second time and

that’s when his bullets ran out.”

The gunman left the room

and was then was approached by

another worshipper, Abdul Aziz,

who threw an Eftpos machine at

him.

Mr Ahmed said one of the

firearms, which was laying on the

ground, was thrown by someone

at the gunman’s car, smashing

the windscreen.

“I think that scared him and

he fled.”

Mr Ahmed rushed out to the

main room, to find a friend dead.

He ran to another man who was

calling out for help and tried to

provide medical assistance.

“I sat next to him holding his

hand trying to find the bleeding

and stop it, but I couldn’t find

the wounds. All of his chest

and upper body was covered in

blood.”

It was at that moment when

police entered the mosque,

calling for everyone to evacuate,

as they were unsure if there were

more shooters.

“I was shaking, in shock. I

wasn’t sure what was happening

around me . . . I was scared,

terrified, so many things were

running in my mind. Is it safe

to live in this country anymore?

What will happen in the future?”

Mr Syed Ahmed lost many

friends and his aunt in the attack.

“It was a life-changing event

for me in many ways . . . when I

arrived home, I was a different

man.”

•From page 1

“I have mentioned a few things

on Facebook in regard to Muslims

overseas. Nothing in regard

to the Al Noor Mosque, like the

way they burn people and the

way they stone their women on

assumptions of adultery and so

forth,” he told The Star.

Police would not discuss the

visit to Mr Daly.

Deputy Commissioner Mike

Clement said as part of an ongoing

response to

the March 15

terror attacks,

police are conducting

visits

to some firearms

owners

and individuals

about concerning

behaviour.

These visits

are carried out as a result of police

receiving information about

concerning behaviour. Many of

these are from members of the

public who are being vigilant as

we have asked them to be and

have rightly passed their concerns

on to police,” said Deputy

Commissioner Clement.

Some visits result in police being

satisfied that there is no risk

to the public and that is the end

of the matter.

“Some may require further

interventions, such as seizing

firearms or arrests. This is normal

policing and what the public

rightly expects.

The police presence during

these visits is based on a risk

assessment and the fact that

those being visited have access to

firearms. As such, police must respond

in a manner that protects

officers and the public as enquiries

are undertaken.”

Deputy Commissioner Clement

said police are confident the

visits have been conducted in

a professional and appropriate

manner.

Mr Daly is asking the police

under the Official Information

Act request to find out the reason

for the visit.

“It’s not as if I have gone round

news online at www.star.kiwi

Police respond to March 15

to Al Moor Mosque with a pig’s

head or a weapon. It was just over

the top.”

Mr Daly previously worked as a

probation officer for the Department

of Corrections for eight

years and has a periodic detention

assistant warden for 10 years.

New Zealand Council for

Civil Liberties chairman Thomas

Beagle said it is always concerned

when police are used to investigate

people for their political views.

“As the impact of an investigation

has a detrimental effect on

Men stabbed

during brutal

road rage incident

• By Sophie Cornish

A GANG prospect is facing

multiple charges after a random

road rage incident which left

two people with stab wounds.

A 31-year-old man appeared

in the district court yesterday

facing two charges of wounding

with intent to cause grievously

bodily harm, one charge of assault

and a cache of charges

relating to firearms, drugs and

driving.

He was remanded in custody

and is expected to reappear in

court next month.

It relates to an incident on

May 10 on Sawyers Arms Rd in

Northcote which left one man

in his 20s with multiple stab

wounds and another with a

single stab wound.

A third man was with the

victims, who are all in their 20s,

but was not stabbed.

One of the stab wounds was

in the neck, another in the jaw,

hitting the bone.

Said Detective Sergeant

Daniel Isherwood: “The victims

in this case are recovering well.

However the injuries were serious

and the outcome could have

been far worse.”

The incident unfolded at about

10.40pm.

The arrested man is alleged

to have become angry at how

closely the car, containing the

victims, was driving behind

him.

Police allege he then pulled

over to let the car pass and then

followed behind it before cutting

it off as it turned into Sawyers

Arms Rd.

He was arrested by police after

leaving a motel.

“Road users who encounter

bad driving behaviour should

pull over safely and phone police

on *555 and in serious cases it

may be appropriate to phone

111,” said Detective Sergeant

Isherwood.

High St building flawed – engineers

A NEW OFFICE building in

the central city’s main shopping

precinct has many serious

flaws in its earthquake design

according to three leading

engineering companies –

including one in a Governmentcommissioned

report.

Construction of the sevenstorey

building at 230 High St

the city council was first

warned in December

2017 by engineering

firm Aurecon of its

concerns about “the adequacy

of the design of

It was meant to be the

headquarters for a property

with a cafe on the ground floor.

But it sits empty.

The city council had approved

the structural design, which was

also okayed by Miyamoto International

Zealand engineering

firm based in Wellington.

But after Aurecon

blew the whistle, the

city council then called

in Holmes Consulting

for another opinion.

Mr Joo told RNZ the building

was safe, would perform in an

earthquake and was compliant.

The other engineers had not

made a detailed assessment, he

said.

The other three firms had

approached the design as if it

was for a non-ductile (nonflexible)

designed it as a ductile (flexible)

WELL-KNOWN businessman

“You can’t just keep going

Cr Livingstone said the fact he

Mr Mauger didn’t, would be to

his advantage. Mr Mauger lives

in Avonhead.

“If he lives in close proximity,

that might be okay, but that’s

quite some distance. I think

they’ll have a question (voters)

over how he is going to relate to

them.”

Said Mr Mauger: “I feel I can

do equally as good for the people

in Burwood by my passion for

the area, my roots for the area.

Living there wouldn’t make any

difference to how well I would

work for Burwood.”

KELLY BARBER is no stranger to

running, but this year the 15-time

take part in a race of a different

kind.

The 55-year-old medical supplies

Mr Barber will

also run for a seat

on the Coastal-

The People’s Kelly Barber

said he would bring a more personable

approach to the ward than

Mr East had and make listening to

residents his number one priority.

“I’m not sure that the people are

being heard.

“I think I would look to have

higher visibility to represent what

the people of the east want on

Mr East said this was not a

worry for him and he wanted to let

his track record and work do the

talking.

Controversial

Riccarton Rd

plan revised

A PLANNED tree-planted

median strip along Riccarton

Rd will be shortened and feature

fewer trees than initially planned

to ensure there are no barriers to

emergency services.

The median island along

the city’s second busiest road

will run between Clarence and

Matipo Sts. It is part of a project

to replace and upgrade outdated

underground pipes and rebuild

Riccarton Rd to accommodate

bus priority measures between

Harakeke and Matipo Sts.

The initial median plan, which

included 27 columnar hornbeam

trees, was criticised by central

Riccarton residents during the

consultation phase.

They were concerned the

proposal was “extremely

dangerous” and the road was not

wide enough to be turned into a

boulevard.

City council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said the adjustments

will ensure the median island is

easier to negotiate for emergency

services. However, there will be

10 fewer trees than originally

planned at the outer edges of the

project and around intersections.

Work on the median strip is

expected to start in April 2020.

Intersection draws 600 submissions

• By Jess Gibson

THE NUMBER of submissions

received on a proposal

to upgrade a contentious

Harewood intersection has

almost hit 600.

Public consultation will be

open until June 10 for two

options to improve safety at

the Breens, Harewood and

Gardiners Rds junction.

Option one, which is the city

council’s preferred choice, is

to make Gardiners and Breens

Rds left-turn in and left-turn

out only by closing the median

on Harewood Rd. Option two

is to install traffic lights at the

intersection.

More than 50 people showed

up at the Breens Intermediate

School hall on Tuesday to learn

more about the proposal at an

information session with the city

council.

Another session is due to take

place today at 10.30am at the

Bishopdale Community Centre.

City councillor Aaron Keown

has been campaigning to have

traffic lights installed at the

intersection for three years.

Cr Keown said the preferred

option would introduce major

issues by cutting off Harewood

Rd and forcing people to drive

around the block or make

dangerous U-turns.

SPEED LIMITS are under review

for Halswell and Hornby in a

move to improve road safety.

Most of the roads are proposed

to have a 60km/h limit while

some – Halswell

Junction Rd and

Kennedys Bush Rd,

as well as parts of

Cashmere Rd and

Hendersons Rd

– may change to

50km/h.

John Paterson

Drive and roads in

the new Cloverden

subdivision off

Murphys Rd will have a proposed

40km/h limit.

A 60km/h speed limit is

proposed for Marshs, Shands,

Springs, Hodgens, Fountains,

Whincops, Downies, Quaifes, Sabys,

Sutherlands and Hoon Hay

Valley Rds, as well as Cashmere

Rd (between Kennedys Bush Rd

and the existing 50km/h zone

north of Hoon Hay Valley Rd).

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said evidence from around New

Zealand and across the world reveals

that even small decreases in

the travelling speeds can significantly

increase the survival rates

of crashes and result in fewer serious

injuries.

“Speed dictates what happens

when vehicles crash into other

Improving the safety of the

road network is a critical issue for

the city council, he said.

The city council has been

reviewing the local road network

based on New Zealand Transport

Agency Speed Management

Guide to ensure appropriate limits

are in place.

Consultation on the proposed

speed limit changes is open until

June 17.

A final decision on any changes

will be made by the city council

following recommendations from

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

consideration of a staff report.

Disneyland trip brings happy tears

• By Julia Evans

“TEAR-WORTHY, in the best

way.”

That’s how 19-year-old cancer

suffered Megan Hore described

her family’s trip to Europe to visit

Disneyland Paris.

The daughter of well-known

blind organist Richard Hore was

declared cancer-free in October

after battling bone cancer for

more than a year.

The Star has been following

Megan’s progress and helped

fundraising efforts to get to Paris,

which is part of her bucket list to

go to all the Disney parks around

the world.

Last month, she flew to France

for seven days before the travelled

to the United Kingdom for a

further three weeks.

“I cried so much it wasn’t

funny, but it was all happy tears,”

Megan said.

The Hore family stayed in

an apartment in central Paris,

explored the city and most importantly

went to Disneyland.

“We even saw Notre Dame

a week before it burnt down,”

Megan’s mother Marilyn Hore

said.

A highlight for Megan was a

visit to the famous Parisian book

shop Shakespeare and Company.

“Richard sat down and played

the piano there,” Mrs Hore said.

“Meg just enjoyed every single

solitary moment.”

FUN TIMES: The Hore family with Minnie Mouse at Disneyland Paris. Right – Amy and

Megan slept over in a library in Wales.

But if you ask Megan what her

favourite part of the trip was, she

will say just one word – Rapunzel

– her favourite Disney princess.

“It was the one thing I really

wanted to do, you can’t see her

in Hong Kong. It was like I need

to see her and I don’t care what it

takes,” she said.

Then I turned the corner and

she was standing there and I

started bawling. Happy tears.”

It took some string-pulling by

a Disneyland worker and Mrs

Hore, but Megan finally got to

have a meet and greet with her

favourite character.

However, while Megan soaked

in every second of her time away,

it could not be described as

smooth sailing.

“Everyone’s fine and healthy

now,” Mrs Hore said.

“Except while we were in Paris

I had a fall over a Lime scooter.

It did horrible things to my ribs

and sternum . . . but I just got on

with it.”

The family then went to the UK

for three weeks.

“Meg wanted to sleep in a

library, so we did in Wales. We

saw a lot of the Dorset area, spent

time in Bath and before we left

we went on the Harry Potter studio

tour in London,” Mrs Hore

said.

“She was just in her element, it

was amazing.”

Mrs Hore said it was “amazing”

to watch her daughter, who spent

200 days in a room at Christchurch

Hospital last year, have a

great holiday.

“You spend a year in one room

and then you’re in the London

Underground to get on a train

with people all around you, it’s

very different and Meg was totally

out of her comfort zone. But

she coped with the crowds really

well,” Mrs Hore said.

“All the way through the trip,

we just thought this was Meg’s

trip and it was great seeing her

joy, you don’t know how long that

joy will last.”

However, while the holiday

was a huge success Megan has

started her next round of testing

to check and see if the cancer had

returned.

If any cells are found, her diagnosis

will become terminal.

“Testing is horrible. It’s a mental

nightmare,” Mrs Hore said.

“A lot of people think you have

treatment, you go into remission

and life goes on, but remission is

hard.”

Mrs Hore said they were all

remaining optimistic, in spite of

Megan being very anxious.

It is Megan’s first year at

university studying towards a

Bachelor of Arts in English and

Classics.

“It’s going fine. It’s just nice

spending time with people my

own age and not being in hospital

or at home,” she said.

The family has also started

thinking about their next trip –

but not for another 18 months –

for Megan’s 21st, a Disney cruise.

Ave has been approved. ​

Pool plan gets green light

outdoor recreational activities.

Community meeting rooms and

a kitchen will also be included in

the design.

Linwood Ward city

councillor Yani Johanson

said conversations about the

possibility

of building a

facility like this

in Linwood had

been happening

for about 20

years.

It would be a

great asset for

the community

once it was

Yani

Johanson

constructed, Cr Johanson said.

“It does point to a really

significant investment into a

community that certainly has

been overdue for it.”

Walking in mum’s shoes

THE WHOLE family has

been at home this week,

but it’s not been a complete

holiday for me (well, you

know what I mean), as

Laura’s been recovering

from an elective surgery.

A gall bladder removal.

Add that to the appendectomy

she had during

pregnancy and she might

not have any organs left if

we have another kid.

It’s been great having

some bonus family time,

but poor Laura’s not been

able to pick Vittoria up at

all while in recovery.

With me home all the

time, it’s no big drama, but

you try explaining the situation

to a one-year-old.

Laura could show bubs

her boo-boos all she likes,

it’s not going to sink in unless

there’s a baby-friendly

picture book on keyhole

surgery out there.

It’s pretty sad for me seeing

Vittoria reaching up to

her mummy and crying to

be picked up and cuddled,

Lord knows how tough that

is for Laura. More cuddles

for me I guess.

She’s off work until next

week she’s taking the opportunity

to come to some

of the baby activities she’s

missed out on.

In less surgical matters,

Vittoria took her first steps

in her mum’s shoes this

week.

Literally.

She’s started getting

interested in our shoes and

occasionally goes and grabs

us some to put on if we are

sitting on the couch. They

may or may not be a matching

pair.

Well, after a few sessions

playing shoe shop assistant,

she decided to try them on

herself. Her first go on Sunday

saw her walk around

the lounge in one of Laura’s

sneakers. Which was on

backwards.

NOT EVERYONE in

Diamond Harbour is

seaplanes into Lyttelton

Harbour.

says the seaplanes will

“I think the harbour

opportunity where it

can. We don’t want to go

backwards, we want to go

forwards,” she said.

“I would have thought

that there is potential to

provide locals with job

opportunities, and if people

come to the harbour to do

a seaplane flight, who is to

say they won’t stop in at a

On Tuesday morning she

took it to the next level and

wore Laura’s Ugg boots. I

helped her put the second

one on.

They were a bit harder to

walk in and she kept falling

over, until one fell off

and the other one turned

around backwards.

Then she could happily

walk around the lounge

until Laura needed her

bakery and buy a doughnut

or a coffee somewhere?”

said the group made a

submission to the Civil

Aviation Authority in

opposition to Rangiorabased

Mrs Davison said the

plan.

Big break for musicians

The Star starts a

new feature today

showcasing the city’s

successful young

people. If you have a

story to tell, email jess.

gibson@starmedia.kiwi

“A HUGE achievement.”

That is how Rangi Ruru Girls’

School director of music Janet

Kingsbury describes the success

of three students who have

been named in the 2019 NZSO

National Youth Orchestra.

Year 13 music scholars Sarah

Lawrence (violin) and Victoria

Park (viola), and year 12 scholar

Amy Clough (Oboe) have

gained the prestigious places,

in what Mrs Kingsbury said is a

very competitive environment.

“What makes this

additionally such an

achievement for these three

girls is that the vast majority

of NYO members are tertiary

level students and even beyond.

It is the top level of nonprofessional

orchestral playing

available for young musicians in

New Zealand. We are incredibly

proud of them,” she said.

The girls will join recent

Rangi Ruru alumni Jessie

Anderson and Isabella Gregory.

“Amy’s selection this year

is particularly outstanding as

there are only three oboes in an

orchestra – so to win a place as a

year 12 student is a remarkable

achievement,” Mrs Kingsbury

said.

Sarah has just finished the

senior production Wheeler’s

Luck and said she is looking

forward to sleeping a little more

now the play is over.

“I am very excited to learn

from and work alongside such

an amazing group of young

musicians again,” she said.

“Also without the

constant support and

encouragement of the incredibly

hardworking music staff at

Rangi, as well as the role

models I’ve had in older girls

throughout my time here, I

wouldn’t be in the position to

have opportunities like this.”

Victoria said music is a big

part of her life and she can’t

imagine being without it.

The lifelong skills I’ve gained

and the connections made

through music have crafted me

into the person I am today. I am

incredibly excited to be part of

the NYO, as I look forward to

learning many new things in

regards to music and making

new connections through this

experience. “

Concerts will be held in

Wellington and Auckland,

where the NYO will be joined

by the New Zealand Youth

Choir for one of the works

being performed in these

concerts.

success for

Spurway

CHARLOTTE Spurway has taken

out the under-17 girls road race title

at the Canberra Junior Tour.

Spurway, 16, was part of a New

Zealand under-17 team which

travelled across the ditch to take

part in the four-stage event from

May 11-12. The team competed

against top Australian cyclists from

Queensland, ACT and New South

Wales.

In the road race, Spurway

crossed the line in 1hr 35min 32sec

and pipped Auckland’s Queenie

McElwee and Emily Strumfin, of

Australia, in a sprint finish to claim

the title.

The time trial saw the Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School student finish 19sec off

the winning time of 20min 52.46sec

set by Australian Haylee Fuller.

Spurway’s time of 21min

11.16sec was also just 1sec ahead of

McElwee’s time.

In the kermesse event, Spurway

crossed the line in 38min 57sec to

finish sixth. She also finished sixth

in the criterium.

The four event times were

combined to make up the overall

tour general classification, in which

Spurway finished third with a time

of 2hr 35min 19sec, 1min behind

Fuller who won.

OUR PEOPLE – JULIE PATTERSON

Following in the footsteps of Canty

Julie Patterson is the

first woman president

of the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union

She speaks to Sophie

Cornish about growing

up in Southbridge, her

own experience playing

rugby and meeting Sir

David Attenborough

What was life like growing up

in Southbridge?

It was a very small country

town. If you weren’t related,

you certainly knew everyone. I

come from a big family, more

than 50 first cousins spread

across Canterbury and beyond.

Growing up a lot was revolved

around family and farming. We

moved in the township when I

was four-years-old. I was always

active, it’s that rural background

of being outdoors and always

doing something.

Rugby is a big sport for

women. Did you play as a girl?

Girls just didn’t play rugby, it

was never a consideration, girls

played netball. If I had grown

up in Courtenay or Kirwee like

my mum did, then I would have

played hockey, because that was

what girls did. I certainly played

netball and was reasonably useful

at it. I played in a few rep teams,

I played the centre position. It

didn’t even occur to us to say

why can’t we play (rugby)? It

wasn’t an issue because it never

came up. It wasn’t really until

I moved to Christchurch that I

got involved with the University

of Canterbury Rugby Club and

never looked back. I enjoyed it so

much. I had bumped into some

people who were involved and

they got me along to it. In fact,

last Saturday I ran into my first

two coaches, who happened to be

in Christchurch. We caught up

out at Belfast watching Varsity

boys play Belfast on their club

day. It was just like ‘oh my god,

my first coaches.’ This was back

in 1985, they live out of town

now, but we had a laugh together.

They have watched with interest

over the years and are pleased to

see how well I’ve done.

HONOUR: Julie Patterson is the first female president of the Canterbury Rugby Football

Union.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

How did you first find out

about being offered the role as

president of the CRFU?

It was certainty not something

I expected. I never imagined

I would be following in the

footsteps of Canterbury legends.

I had a couple of years to get

my head around it, I was the

vice-president for past two years.

It’s one of those things where

you get approached and asked if

you would accept a nomination,

initially. I was surprised and

honoured to be approached. Then

of course my club supported that

nomination. In my two years as

vice-president I worked really

closely with Vance Stewart,

who was the president. He is

a fantastic man, an old school

gentleman of the game. It was a

pleasure to spend time with him

and bounce ideas off him. It’s a

PLAYING DAYS: Patterson

in Amsterdam during

the 1988/89 Canterbury

University tour of the United

States and Europe. The team

had just beaten the Dutch

national side.

huge honour to work with people

like that. Vance was the first

Crusaders coach, he’s been an All

Black, he’s done so many great

things. So to suddenly be held in

the same level it’s like ‘gosh’ how

do you put that into words. It’s

incredibly humbling.

You took the Ranfurly Shield

down to Antarctica – what was

that all about?

I worked for Antarctica New

Zealand for about 10 years. I have

been lucky to have 10 trips to

Scott Base. I took the Ranfurly

Shield down and on another trip

I took the Farah Palmer Cup

(national women’s provincial

trophy). It was a great to have the

shield over a summer that was

when Scott Base was celebrating

its 60 th birthday. It was a great

way to celebrate my rugby

connection with that iconic piece

of rugby trophy with the crew

down there.

OUR PEOPLE 19

They didn’t know it was

coming, it was a huge surprise for

them and it was great to be able

to create those memories. They

got to hold the shield and get a

photo with it when they would

never expect to see it, let alone

have it at Scott Base. It was like

kids in the candy shop. It’s got

its own special case, you have to

look after it very carefully. It’s

an old trophy now and it’s wood

so I was pretty nervous. I didn’t

want to be the one who breaks

the shield, it wouldn’t be such

a good story. There was a bit of

paperwork, it was a huge thing to

do, I think it was the first time it

had been out of the country.

What sort of work did you do

down there?

The work was different each

time, mostly up to three months

living and working down there

as part of the leadership team,

sometimes HR or training or

operational leadership support.

It was a huge privilege to get

down there to work and support

the science. I actually got to host

Sir David Attenborough in 2010

for dinner. It was a pinch-me

moment. He had come down to

the ice to film his Frozen Planet

series and to do his pieces to the

camera. Of course we invited the

team and Sir David over. I got to

sit next to him and have dinner.

You could just pose a question

PRIVILEGE: Julie Patterson on the ice with the Ranfurly Shield and (right) with

Black Fern Kendra Cocksedge and the women’s World Cup.

and he would be off, he’s got

so many good stories. He’s

also got a wicked sense of

humour and is a wee bit naughty.

I loved his work when I was

growing up.

What does a day in your

role as president of the CRFU

consist of?

It’s fully a volunteer role,

which I do in the weekends and

evenings. I call it my second

job, I work full-time. It means

I represent the union and

Canterbury rugby community at

different events. You get invited

to attend as the figurehead of

Canterbury rugby, you might

be speaking or handing out

trophies, just connecting with

community really. You’ve got

to be out and about connecting

with the community from grass

roots up to visiting dignitaries,

provincial unions, that sort of

thing. It’s kind of cool; you get to

meet a lot of really neat people.

My Saturday starts at some

sort of junior game, when there

is frost is still on the ground,

I’m pleased I’m not playing at

that point. I love watching kids

playing and enjoying it. In the

afternoon I will go out and

watch any club days, or go to

any finals or semi-finals. I try to

make sure I get across not only

metro rugby, but Ellesmere and

North Canterbury as well. It’s

always great to get out and see

different styles and levels from

kids playing ripper to division

one men’s and women’s. I get

the pleasure of going to all the

Crusaders and Canterbury home

games. I do site liaison work for

Super Rugby. That’s always good

to be doing something practical.

For Canterbury home games,

we are usually hosting people,

from the opposition to key

stakeholders, sponsors that sort

of thing. I mix and mingle with

those people and hear about what

is happening in their space.

OUR PEOPLE

‘It’s not about gender; it’s about contribution and passion’

•From page 19

We share ideas on how to

keep growing the game and

encouraging participation. We

had Bill Osborne, who is president

of New Zealand rugby, down over

the weekend and I caught up with

him. I got invited along to the

Black Ferns capping that they had

here on Saturday night. Seventeen

more Black Ferns were capped;

quite a few were Canterbury girls.

It was a great pleasure to see them

getting their caps and celebrating

with them.

What do you hope to change

in this role?

I think this appointment is

a symbol of change, to change

people’s perception of Canterbury

rugby. It’s not as conservative,

traditional or male-dominated as

people might imagine. It’s just a

reflection that women have always

contributed and this is a great way

of recognising that it is a game

that is inclusive. It’s not about

gender; it’s about contribution and

passion.

Who has inspired you to get

to this point?

I have been hugely influenced

by the people at the university

club. Initially, that was Laurie

O’Reilly, he was one of my first

coaches. He was a huge supporter

of diversity, inclusively and

encouragement. It was his vision

that continued to build what we

as a club and then as a province

and nationally, have been able to

do in the women’s space. He was

a great technical coach. Without

him, women’s rugby wouldn’t

be in the position it is today. I

wouldn’t be the first president

of Canterbury Rugby if I hadn’t

met him and been encouraged by

him. Of course there are others

too. Ivan Bolton was the president

at the university club when I

started there in the mid-80s. He’s

in his late 80s now but is still

contributing. He recently got a

lifetime achievement award from

Sport Canterbury and from the

university’s Blues committee.

Its people like them that always

just encourage and support you

to do things and haven’t put

any barriers in the way. They

challenged me to go beyond the

normal pathway. Laurie took us

on a tour as the University girls

(team) to the United States and

Europe in 1988. We played over

seven weeks and every second

or third day we played a game.

The friendship and memories we

created, it’s those sorts of bonds

that are special in rugby. That’s

why I’d like others to have their

own journey, but also make those

friendships which are really

important.

Black of all time?

McCaw are pretty special. There is

that Southbridge connection with

Dan, I remember him as a kid

growing up. I had a friend that use

to tell people babysat him. I use to

say ‘you know that’s not true’ and

she would say ‘oh but you could

have.’ Yes, if his parents had of

asked me I could have. I’m sure I

babysat some of his classmates. I

knew as a child he had a goalpost,

his dad had made it for him and

he spent a lot of time kicking the

ball around. I remember seeing

him kicking a ball around but no

one predicted as a five or six-yearold

that he would do what he’s

managed to achieve.

What do you like to do outside

of rugby?

I work in HR. I am a people

business partner, HR manager,

for an engineering consultancy.

Outside of rugby I enjoy

photography, movies, art, music.

I enjoy people and landscape

photography, going down to the

ice, it’s not very difficult to take a

good photo in Antarctica.

Tell me about your family –

are you married/have kids?

No, I have no husband and

no children, I like to call myself

unclaimed treasure. I have three

older sisters, they all have kids

who are all sort of grown up now.

We have a big extended family,

mum was from a family of 12 and

dad from six. It was definitely

busy.

What will Canterbury rugby

look like in 10 years? Will we

have a new stadium?

I hope we continue to grow the

game and that participation levels

just grow year on year, whether

its men’s and women’s game. I

want people to be engaging if

they aren’t not playing, referees,

managing, coaching, helping

run the competitions and clubs.

Everyone plays a part. I will be

really disappointed if we don’t

have a stadium in 10 years. We

desperately need one, with a roof,

in order to secure internationals,

not just for rugby but as a multisport

facility. We really need that

to continue the re-build.

IF IT’S

HAPPENING NOW

CALL 111

IF IT’S

ALREADY HAPPENED

USE 105

There’s a new way to report non-emergencies to Police.

Use 105.police.govt.nz if you’ve had something stolen, your property

has been intentionally damaged or have lost property to report. You can

also get updates here on a Police report you’ve already made, or add

information to it. Call 105 to report anything else that’s already happened.

Just remember, in an emergency, always call 111.

Dispute escalates after

five peacocks killed

• By Louis Day

FIVE WILD peacocks have been shot on

a farm near Lyttelton as a neighbourhood

dispute escalates.

Brenchley Farm owner Sue Stubenvoll

said the peacocks were killed after they

wandered onto her property. She said it

was done to stop them eating endangered

geckos and skinks on the farm.

The cull has shocked neighbour Janelle

Wills. She told The Star she needs more

time to relocate the peacocks, which gather

at her property to be fed.

In February, Ms Stubenvoll sent a legal

letter to Miss Wills, saying she had the

right to shoot the peacocks under the

Impounding Act. She gave Miss Wills four

weeks notice of what would

happen if they came onto her

property.

Miss Wills said the

shootings were “inhumane.”

There is no other word

for it. It is affecting all of my

Anita

Spencer

family,” she said.

Miss Wills said 10 peacocks

had been relocated with the

help of Serendipity Animal Rescue. But

others had not been because they flee when

attempts are made to capture them. More

time is needed to catch the peacocks, she

said.

Department of Conservation senior

biodiversity ranger Anita Spencer said

there are rare geckos and skinks in the

area.

“DOC hasn’t carried out any formal

surveys to confirm there are lizards on the

farm, but we understand a herpetologist

TARGETED: Five peacocks in

Lyttelton have been shot by a

farmer who has plans to eat them.

has visited the property and identified the

lizards,” she said.

However, Ms Spencer said chickens,

which Ms Stubenvoll keeps on her farm,

pose the same threat to geckos and skinks

as peacocks.

Ms Stubenvoll said her chickens were

not eating the geckos and skinks.

“You can tell from the droppings of a

chicken what it has been eating. If it has

been eating something with blood in it the

droppings go black. Guess what the colour

of the peacock droppings are? Black. The

chickens’ is a wispy white.”

Ms Stubenvoll also said she plans to eat

the peacocks, and more will be culled.

“It would be an awful waste to not eat

them,” she said.

Miss Wills said she was “disgusted” by

the plan to eat the peacocks.

Calicivirus for red zone rabbits

CALICIVIRUS WILL be released in

some areas of the red zone to help keep

rabbit numbers down.

Rabbit numbers in Heathcote,

Brooklands, Horseshoe Lake, Bexley and

Avondale have reached a point where pest

control measures are required, said Land

Information NZ, which administers the

red zone.

The number of rabbits had increased

since a survey was done in spring.

“A survey in the spring by our

biosecurity experts found that the rabbit

population did not require pest control,

but a recent second survey identified

an increase that requires pest control

measures,” said LINZ spokesman Matt

Bradley.

The Star Thursday May 23 2019

Calicivirus was recommended as it

only affects the European rabbit. “Other

animals are not affected by this virus,” he

said. However, he said domestic and pet

rabbits should be vaccinated.

The virus will not be released until

late June to give owners sufficient time

to ensure their rabbits are vaccinated

appropriately, he said.

SIT continues

commitment to excellence

The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT),

in the face of uncertainty with the Reform

on Vocational Education on the horizon, is

continuing to keep the bar high for its learners.

Chief Executive Penny Simmonds said there

had been some concern around the future of

study of SIT, but the institution had been able

to allay those fears.

“We’ve been very upfront with students and

the reality is we don’t actually know anything

yet on what the final reform will look like,” she

said.

“Once the Education Minister releases the

framework for how vocational education will

be delivered, that’s when we’ll be able to give

students a more concise picture for their study

at SIT.”

Any change decided by the Government would

likely take a long time to implement so it was

business as usual for the next few years, she said.

ADVERTISING

Despite this, enrolments have remained steady

and SIT continues to live up to its reputation

as a centre of excellence as its students and

graduates thrive in their chosen professional

industries.

Enrolments for Semester 2 starting in July

are now open and provide an opportunity for

people of all ages to take the first step toward

their new career.

With the Christchurch campus offering

courses in automotive and road transport,

beauty therapy and makeup artistry, project

management and more students, can take their

career worldwide with a SIT qualification.

The ever-popular SIT2LRN Distance Learning

programme continues to offer flexible learning,

allowing to students to study from anywhere

in the world. SIT2LRN programmes have no

PEACE: AtlasVoices Ensemble will perform concert The Sound of Souls this week to celebrate peace and acceptance following the Christchurch terror

attacks. The choir’s artistic director Ravil Atlas is no stranger to terror attacks seeing the Twin Towers collapse before his eyes.

Choir’s concert of peace and acceptance

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Ravil

Atlas is no stranger to the

scars a terror attack leaves on a

community.

Originally from the United

States, on the day of 9/11, he

witnessed the Twin Towers collapsing

from the New Jersey side,

east of the Hudson River.

The enormity of explaining

the Twin Towers coming

down in front of your eyes.

We literally went into shock

for a week.”

“It changed everything. Having

been there, even though it

was 18 years ago, it stays with

you,” he said.

Atlas, 58, who now lives in

Beckenham, believes it is why the

Christchurch mosque shootings

greatly affected him.

The concept we are isolated

to a point of immunity

doesn’t exist . . . we are a

global community now,”

he said.

But he said the March

15 events has since opened

up a different opportunity

for his choir AtlasVoices

Ensemble to perform a

concert of peace.

Leading up to the events,

he had planned for his

choir to perform a Latin

Requiem by Maurice Duruflé

along with 100 high school

students.

Now, while the choir will no

longer perform with students

from schools across the city, it

will perform a newly-arranged

concert The Sound of Souls this

week to celebrate peace and acceptance.

The concert will still

feature the Duruflé

Requiem along with

works from composer

Morten Lauridsen and

Ola Gjeilo.

Proceeds from the

concert will go towards

the families affected by

the shootings.

Atlas has led a

whirlwind career performing

for Grammy

award-winning choirs and playing

leading tenor roles in more

than 70 professional productions

worldwide.

Yet, he said he is often left

shocked by the level of talent the

city has to offer.

Ravil Atlas

Last year, Atlas was left

“stunned” when his choir of 32

members performed Momentum:

The past, present and future

of Atlas Voices.

They are singing at a level that

sometimes astonishes me and I

have been in professional choirs,”

he said.

The concert was a turning point,

and he has since made a five-year

plan with the ultimate goal of

making the choir professional.

Atlas has begun working on

getting a charity together, commissioning

New Zealand composers

and getting sponsorship.

He said eventually hopes to

pay each choir member per

event.

At the age of 23, Atlas joined

musical ensemble Chanticleer,

which has previously won

Grammy Awards and has

developed a major reputation for

its interpretations of Renaissance

music.

In his career, he has played

Jean Valjean in the San Francisco

Broadway company version of

Les Miserables and the phantom

in Phantom of the Opera.

“I feel lucky to have had the

exposure, training and career

that I had . . . I just want to

give the community and the

communities’ artist a chance to

have some of the experiences I

had.”

The Sound of Souls

will be performed at the

Oxford Terrace Baptist

Church on Saturday

at 7.30pm. For more

GARDENING

news online at www.star.kiwi

Time to prepare vege beds

PREPARATION: Construct above-ground edging and raise

your vege beds in readiness for spring planting.

A LOT OF vegetables grow

happily through the cold

weather.

Don’t forget, though, that

winter is also a good time to

leave some beds empty so

that they have a rest. It’s also

a good season to create some

new vege beds.

The easy way to do this is

to start by constructing an

above-ground edging. Then

fill the enclosed bed with

manure, leaves, straw or grass

clippings.

Leave this alone for a couple

of months and you’ll have

the perfect base for your

spring plantings.

An additional sprinkling

of lime encourages biological

activity in the bed and will

prove to be beneficial for

most veges.

Members of the cabbage

family, for example, chinese

cabbages, broccoli, cauliflowers

and cold-loving brussels

sprouts are ideally suited to

the winter garden.

Broad beans and peas grow

well in the winter months but

won’t always set their pods

until spring.

TASTY:

Feijoas are

a must for

anyone

who enjoys

picking

fruit.

Feijoas have many attractions

FEIJOAS ARE an excellent

plant in the home garden.

They make a great fruiting

hedge, attract birds to

the garden and are easy to

grow with the added bonus

of delicious fruit. Feijoas

are an attractive evergreen

plant ranging from a shrub

to a small tree, which will

grow between 2-4m in

height.

They are easily trimmed

and maintained and have

a green leaf, which is grey

underneath. Feijoas have

pohutukawa-like flowers in

December and fruit mainly

from April to June.

Feijoas generally prefer a

warm place in the garden

and young plants need

protection. The soil needs

to be well drained and rich

in organic matter.

The plants shouldn’t be

allowed to dry out in the

summer months as this will

hamper fruit production.

Feijoas are heavy feeders.

Feed them with sheep

pellets and a high-nitrogen

general garden fertiliser

in late winter. Also apply

a slow-release fertiliser

throughout the growing

season.

The self-fertile varieties

need only one plant

to fruit. Non self-fertile

varieties need other varieties

planted near them, so it

pays to plant three or more

for heavy crops.

They will fruit on their

own but the crop is minimal.

Feijoas fruit on new

season’s wood, so prune for

shape without removing all

new wood off the plant.

Feijoas can be made into

many interesting shapes

with pruning. You can train

them as a small tree with

a single trunk and then

branch from there, and they

make great hedge plants.

Feijoas are a must for

anyone who enjoys picking

their own fruit.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

SHEET PAN ROASTED

TOMATOES AND

MUSHROOMS

Ingredients

450g loose tomatoes, halved

3 Tbsp olive oil, divided

2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves,

divided

1/2 tsp kosher salt, divided

450g white button mushrooms,

halved

4 cloves garlic, smashed and

peeled

Freshly ground black pepper

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Directions

Arrange a rack in the middle

of the oven and heat to 190

deg C.

Place the tomatoes, one

tablespoon of the olive oil,

one tablespoon of the thyme,

1/4 teaspoon of salt, and a few

grinds of black pepper in a

large bowl and toss to combine.

Transfer to one half of a rimmed

baking sheet and arrange the

tomatoes so that they are cutside

down.

Place the mushrooms, garlic,

remaining two tablespoons olive

oil, remaining one tablespoon

thyme, remaining 1/4 teaspoon

salt, and a few grinds of black

pepper in the same bowl and

toss to combine. Transfer to the

other half of the baking sheet

and spread out in a single layer.

Roast until the vegetables are

soft and caramelized, 30-35min.

Remove from the oven and

mash the tomatoes gently with

a fork to realize some of their

juices. Drizzle the balsamic

vinegar over the vegetables and

toss to combine and evenly coat

the vegetables. Serve warm or at

room temperature.

EASY CORNED BEEF

SILVERSIDE

Ingredients

1.5kg piece corned beef silverside

30 whole cloves

4 Tbsp golden syrup

6-8 bay leaves

10-12 whole black peppercorns

2 oranges

Directions

Remove the meat from its

wrapping and rinse under the

tap. Trim away any visible fat.

Dress the meat with the cloves

– 30 cloves should be enough to

cover each side of the meat.

Take a large, deep saucepan

and place the meat into the pan,

sitting the meat on a trivet if

you have one to ensure it cooks

evenly.

Add the bay leaves,

peppercorns and golden syrup.

Cut the oranges in half, squeeze

the juice over the meat, place

oranges into the pan.

Fill the saucepan with water,

ensuring all of the meat is

covered.

Place the lid on the pan and

simmer until cooked, allowing

50min cooking time per 500g.

Skim and clean the surface

of the water with a ladle every

30min or so to prevent the liquid

from becoming cloudy. You may

need to top up the pan with

more water to keep the meat

completely covered.

Once cooked, remove meat

from the pan, cover and set aside

for 12-15min.

Remove the cloves from the

meat and carve, slicing it across

the grain. Serve with mustard

sauce and seasonal vegetables.

Winging his way to a life in England

• By Gordon Findlater

SCOTT Hamilton’s versatility

as a Crusaders’ outside back

has helped in his current life as

a player/coach and director of

rugby in England.

Hamilton played 61 matches

for the Crusaders between

2003 and 2008, scoring 21 tries.

Now, more than 10 years since

he last ran onto the field in red

and black, he has hung up his

boots for the final time at the

age of 39, playing his last game

for the Hinckley Rugby Club in

Leicestershire.

Hamilton got his first taste of

rugby with Glenmark in North

Canterbury before he became a

boarder at Christchurch Boys’

High. He is part of a unique club

of players who went on to play

for the All Blacks, but failed to

gain a spot in the CBHS first XV.

“I never had much confidence

as a kid, so I was happy just to be

part of the team . . . it’s actually

the best thing that could have

happened to me to be honest,

because instead of being an

average player in the best team,

I became a good player in an

average team,” he said.

Following high school,

Hamilton studied at Lincoln

University and played for the

Lincoln Rugby Football Club in

the Ellesmere competition before

returning to Glenmark.

At 21, he had a brief stint

playing for a club in the United

States. When he returned, he

was surprisingly unable to gain

selection in the Canterbury

Country team. However, an

injury to another player saw

him called into the team at late

notice, which ended up being a

springboard for the rest of his

career.

The Canterbury selector came

out to watch and I happened

to have a great game. I think

I scored three tries and all of

a sudden, I found myself in

the Canterbury set-up,” said

Hamilton.

He played a handful of games

for Canterbury in the 2002 NPC

before being pushed back to

Canterbury B after the return of

a number of All Blacks. However,

he received a phone call at the

end of the season from Robbie

Deans asking him to be part of

the Crusaders.

“In about four months, I went

from not being good enough

to cracking the Canterbury

Country team to being selected

for the Crusaders,” he said.

Hamilton says he was totally

out of his depth when he first

joined the Crusaders in 2003.

“I was a bit of a simple

country boy. The car park at

training would be full of Ford

Falcons because of the amount

of All Blacks we had . . . I was

driving a lovely little threedoor

Ford Laser I got from my

grandmother,” said Hamilton.

“I was always meaning to

take a photo of it in the car park

because it certainly stood out

like a sore thumb.”

Hamilton wasn’t expecting to

play in his first season with the

Crusaders. However an injury

to Ben Blair saw him start one

match at fullback and make 10

appearances from the bench.

In 2005, he scored eight tries

in as many appearances, which

saw him make two All Blacks

appearances later in the year.

While with the Crusaders,

Hamilton shared a flat with

Dan Carter before living with

Campbell Johnstone and Kevin

O’Neill.

“Campbell had a large phobia

of vegetables, so we would

regularly pop down to the

Mad Butcher on a Sunday and

he would have his favourite,

which was a meat medley of

three different meats and a

few potatoes on the side,” said

Hamilton.

He was also on the scene in

the early days when Johnstone

and Cory Flynn owned the Fitz

Sports Bar on Fitzgerald Ave.

“We certainly had our fair

share of good nights in the Fitz

. . . I do remember one time after

we won the final, (Johnstone)

slipped over and smacked his

head on the trophy.”

A career highlight – which

Hamilton also describes as one

of his biggest disappointments

– came in the in 2008/09 season

when he almost accomplished

somewhat of a Northern and

Southern hemisphere grand

slam.

In his final season in New

Zealand, he won the Super

Rugby title with the Crusaders

and the NPC title with

Canterbury. He then arrived

at Leicester to help them win

the premiership in England.

However, Leicester fell in the

final of the European Cup

the same season, which saw

Hamilton fall one short of

what would have been four

consecutive major titles in the

space of 12 months.

Hamilton played seven seasons

and scored 35 tries for Leicester

before taking up a player/coach

role at third-tier English club

Coventry.

“I didn’t want to stop playing,

that’s why the player/coach thing

was great,” he said.

He guided the side to a midtable

finish before taking up the

player/coach role at Hinckley

in the fourth-tier of English

rugby. He has also recently been

appointed as director of rugby at

the club.

Surprisingly, Hamilton played

his final competitive match in

April, which was Hinckley’s last

game of the season.

Outside of rugby, Hamilton is

an account manager at G4S – a

British multinational security

services company.

“We’ve got secure vans, which

go around businesses and collect

cash and take it to the bank,” he

said.

Super Rugby draws have got stale, mate

ARE WE HAPPY to call it a

day and accept a draw when the

scores are level after 80min of

Super Rugby? How about giving

games that have gone right down

to the wire the extra drama they

deserve?

The Crusaders have already

had four draws in this year’s

Super Rugby season, and on

each occasion fans have accepted

the status quo which is the

equivalent of kissing your sister.

With the recent run of three

draws in as many weeks in Super

Rugby, the time seems right to

look at a change going forward.

The biggest discussion then becomes,

how we decide a winner

after full-time. The current rules

for a draw in the Super Rugby

playoffs would see two 10min

halves of extra time. If the scores

are still level, then up to 10min

of sudden death takes place. If no

team is able to score in sudden

death, a penalty shootout will

decide the winner.

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

Yes, rugby has its own version

of a penalty shootout, but the

chances of ever seeing one are

extremely miniscule.

For draws during the roundrobin

stage of Super Rugby,

why not go straight to 10min of

sudden death with a potential

penalty shootout to finish?

The current shootout rules

would see five players nominated

from each side to take kicks from

the 22m line. If the tally is equal

after five attempts each, the same

five kickers will continue in a

sudden death format. However,

the prospect of new kickers having

to come to the fore appeals

much more to me. Who doesn’t

want to see Scott Barrett try to

slot a shot like his brothers?

If you get a chance, go You-

Tube and watch the penalty

shootout between Leicester and

Cardiff to decide the 2008/09

Heineken Cup semi-final – it will

give you a good indication of the

drama a penalty shootout could

add. Another plus with a sudden

death period after full-time is the

prospect of drop goal attempts,

which seem to be on a steep

decline in modern-day Super

Rugby. It’s worth noting that the

NRL has operated a golden point

extra time system since 2003

which still grips die-hard fans

and neutral viewers today.

Let’s bring some extra drama

to the flurry of draws we’re having

in Super Rugby. Instead of

splitting the points, give all four

to the victor of extra time or a

penalty shootout, and let the

unlucky loser have the two they

would already get for a draw.

for St Thomas’

• By Gordon Findlater

ST THOMAS of

Canterbury College

created history when they

caused one of schoolboy

rugby’s biggest upsets on

Saturday.

They beat Christchurch

Boys’ High School’s first

XV for the first time. And

what makes the result

even more incredible is

they didn’t sneak home,

they gave CBHS a 40-12

dusting. The win also

saw St Thomas’ claim the

South Island school rugby

equivalent of the Ranfurly

Shield – the Trustbank

Cup.

The Trustbank Cup has

been around since 1994.

However, St Thomas’ didn’t

even know it was up for

grabs until it was unveiled

and then presented to

them during their wild

post-match

celebrations.

But for

one St

Thomas’

player, his

priorities

Johnny

Leo’o

after the

full-time

whistle were

a bit different. Instead

of celebrating with his

teammates immediately

after the game, midfielder

Elisara Vaifale ran the

length of the field to

embrace his parents while

bursting into tears before

re-joining his teammates.

The occasion had a special

meaning for him and

his family. His two older

brothers previously played

for St Thomas’ and both

dreamed of toppling

CBHS.

“I’m the youngest, so it

was really big for not only

me, but my whole family

. . . it was like a burden

lifted off when we beat

Boys’ High. I just thought

of all the early mornings

that my parents came and

supported us day in, day

out,” said Vaifale.

In recent years, St

Thomas’ have played an

exciting and at times risky

brand of rugby, due in part

to the large rugby league

influence at the school. The

majority of the school’s

league team, which

finished seventh at the

national secondary school

tournament last year, was

made up of first XV players

and the same will happen

again later this year.

They complement each

other. It’s basically the

same team, bar a couple of

players,” said St Thomas’

coach Johnny Leo’o.

Their brand of rugby

was on full display against

CBHS with the ball being

tossed around at will.

“That’s how we play, we

just free-ball it after about

the third phase,” said

Vaifale.

While the approach has

backfired at times, it all

came together on Saturday

in what Leo’o described

as the most complete

performance he has seen

from the side since he took

on the coaching role in

2017.

They had a ruthless

attitude not to give up,” he

said. “They just continued

to tackle and attack. As

a coach, it was really

satisfying to see things

come to fruition,” he said.

St Thomas’ will face a

tough task in their first

defence of the cup when

they travel to St Andrew’s

College on Saturday.

St Andrew’s have won

their opening three

games this season, which

included victories over the

fancied Nelson College

and Marlborough Boys’

College.

Leaguie stands out for Linwood

• By Gordon Findlater

IF GIBSON Popoali’i can

pass his concussion test today,

Linwood hopes the first-five’s

league flair will give them

an advantage in Saturday’s

Crying Towel match against

Christchurch.

Popoali’i has enjoyed a

breakout season with Linwood

and is currently second on the

premier metro rugby MVP

standings, one point behind

Burnside’s Sean Forster.

The 21-year-old moved from

Auckland to Christchurch at

the start of the year following

a three-year rugby league stint,

and now his goal is to play for

Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup

which starts in August.

He is part way towards

achieving his goal after being

named in Canterbury coach Joe

Maddock’s wider training squad

this week.

“That’s the ultimate goal for

me, to play some consistent

footy and crack the Canterbury

side and try to move onto higher

honours,” said Popoali’i.

Following his first XV career

at De La Salle College in

Auckland, Popoali’i attended a

Warriors open trial and picked

up a two-year deal with the club.

In 2016 and 2017, he played

in the Warriors under-20 side

before making a move to Sydney

last year after picking up a

contract with the North Sydney

Bears. He returned to Auckland

later in the year and then made

the decision to pursue the 15-

man game in Christchurch.

NEW STAR: Former league player Gibson Popoali’i has helped Linwood get into the

premier metro competition’s top six.

Popoali’i knew Linwood

and Canterbury centre Inga

Finau through his older brother

Fapene, who played with and

against Finau at age group

and school level in Auckland.

After trying out for Linwood,

Popoali’i soon made the

decision to join for the season.

The culture they have is really

family-orientated and I saw that

the club was struggling in recent

years. I really wanted to be part

of the change, he said.

Last year Linwood retained

the Crying Towel after a 7-76

towelling against Christchurch

at Linwood Park. While

Popoali’i admits he only recently

learnt about the history of the

famous towel – which is given

to the loser each time the sides

meet – he is desperate to help

Linwood win their biggest

grudge match of the season.

The club’s been talking about

the Crying Towel a lot recently.

I know it’s a big thing for the

older guys at the club and it’s

something you don’t want to

have,” he said.

However, first he will need to

pass a concussion test tomorrow

after leaving their match against

Lincoln University after just

7min following a head knock.

Before leaving the pitch, he

was able to put a grubber kick

behind the Lincoln Uni defence

to set up Finau for a try. He has

also already created a reputation

of setting up a number of plays

with his ability to off-load

well after contact. “I think I’ve

started using it a lot more now

that I’ve got a bit bigger through

my league days. I’m able to poke

my nose through the defence

and leave my hand open so I can

do off-loads,” he said.

Saturday will be the 51st

anniversary of the Crying Towel

match. The game kicks off at

Christchurch Park at 2.45pm.

SPORT 31

in brief

Win and loss for

Red Devils

English goaltender Adam Goss

stole the show as the Canterbury

Red Devils began their national

ice hockey league campaign

with an overtime loss and a win

against defending champions,

the West Auckland Admirals.

The import made 119 saves from

125 shots over the two games.

On Saturday the scores were

tied at 2-2 following the third

period before the Admirals won

in overtime. On Sunday the Red

Devils trailed 2-3 with 12min

remaining. However, they scored

three late goals to win 5-3.

Semi-final games in

country rugby

The finalists for the combined

country rugby competition will

be found on Saturday. Lincoln

will head to Hinds to play

Southern while Glenmark host

Springston in the other semifinal.

Defending champions

Waihora were defeated by

Springston – who were playing in

Ellesmere’s second division two

years ago – at the weekend.

Rams eye up fourth

straight win

The Canterbury Rams will

look for their fourth straight

win in the NBL when they host

the Manawatu Jets at Cowles

Stadium tomorrow night.

Following their home loss to

the Wellington Saints the Rams

have dispatched the Hawkes

Bay Hawks and Nelson Giants

and most recently the defending

champion Southland Sharks.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the
