Council

staff

may be

millions

• By Louis Day

CITY COUNCIL staff could

be owed millions of dollars in

unpaid leave.

Diane Brandish, the city

council’s head of financial

management, said it was too early

to quantify the amount owed and

number of people affected.

There has been a

misunderstanding on how to

calculate bereavement, annual

leave public holidays and sick

leave for some employees. Staff

were advised last month that a

review is under way,” she said.

The review is expected to cost

$5.6 million and take 12 to 18

months to complete.

Ms Brandish said the city

council is required by law to

review the previous six years from

the date areas of non-compliance

were identified.

Last year, it was revealed more

than 100,000 health workers

were owed between $550 to $650

million from mistakes made

by district health boards across

the country in leave and shift

allowance pay. New Zealand Post

had to set aside $38 million to

pay up to 22,000 workers owed

additional holiday pay.

HAVING A locomotive’s engine

running next to your house at

the crack of dawn would be a

nightmare for most people.

For Saman Farahani, it is a

harsh reality he and his family

face up to three times a week.

His home on Lowe St in

Addington sits right next to the

railway.

Mr Farahani said over the

past three months a train would

occasionally stop between 6am

and 6.30am and the locomotive’s

engine would be idling outside

the house.

He said the combination of the

noise and the shaking from the

engine would wake up himself,

his wife Sara and three-monthold

daughter.

He also said the smell of fumes

fills up his house to the point

where he cannot stop coughing.

“First thing when I wake up, I

cough because the house is full of

the smell of gas,” he said.

Mr Farahani said he was

concerned for the health of his

daughter.

He said moving was not an

option for him, with his tenancy

contract at the property not running

out until October.

the house and the whole house

will start shaking and it will be so

Teen earns entry

into prestigious

UK university

• From page 1

The former St Margaret’s

College student will start at the

University of Cambridge in the

United Kingdom in September,

where she will read economics at

Corpus Christi College.

Last week, Emma accepted a Top

Scholar Award a ceremony at Parliament,

after scoring the highest

mark in the country, the maximum

score possible, 45 out of 45.

The IB Diploma is a globally

recognised qualification that follows

a two-year educational programme

primarily aimed at 16 to

19-year-olds.

The programme provides a

qualification for entry into higher

education and is recognised by

many universities worldwide.

Emma chose to study IB at St

Margaret’s College due to the

global perspectvie the study

offered and depth of subjects

covered, such as language and

literature, language acquisition,

individuals and societies, experimental

sciences, maths and the

arts.

Said Emma: “I chose IB because

I wanted to study a broad range

of subjects and I also wanted an

international career in the future.

The chance to study economics,

particularly developmental economics

is quite unique for a high

school curriculum.

“IB taught me a lot about time

management and taught me how

to retain knowledge and use it in

different contexts. It taught me

to question things, particularly

knowledge – you don’t necessarily

take things at face value,”

Emma said.

Emma hopes to find a career

working for organisations such

as the IMF or the World Bank,

leveraging human rights issues in

developing countries and working

with loans and projects that

would be able to develop their

economy so they can get out of

the poverty trap.

“I’ve had my heart set on this

since seeing a story on the news

when I was in year 9 and IB was

the right pathway to achieve

that,” she said.

Record-breaking effort

for cancer fundraiser

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’

High School’s rowing team

has set a new world record and

raised more than $22,000 for

Leukaemia and Blood Cancer

New Zealand in the process.

Ed Lopas, a member of the

school’s rowing team, was

diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma

– a form of blood cancer

– last year. It was only fitting that

the 16-year-old had the honour

of finishing the last stint of the

successful world record attempt

on Tuesday. The team of 61 rowers

set a new world record for the

longest continual team erg (rowing

machine) by a group aged

under-19. Their time of 145hr

10min smashed the previous

record of 96hr.

“It was pretty special having

everyone cheer me on to the finish,”

said Lopas.

The team travelled a total

distance of 1937km. On a map,

their travels took them from

school, north to Blenheim, west

to Greymouth, south to Queenstown,

east to Dunedin and up

SH1 back to school.

The school’s rowing manager

Ricardo De Sousa said he’s been

blown away by the team’s commitment

to the record-breaking

The boys have been absolutely

be a bit of a headache trying to get

boys on the egg at silly hours of

the morning. It’s not the most fun

thing to be on and the boys tend to

shy away from it, but they wanted

to do it for Ed,” said De Sousa.

Senior rowers did shifts of

90min with some of the movies

doing shifts between 30-45min.

The team began the world record

big on Wednesday last week and

had surpassed the previous world

record by Sunday afternoon.

Ed was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s

lymphoma in July last year.

After five months of successful

chemotherapy, Ed was cleared to

start physical activity again and

hopes to row at the Maadi Cup

MAJOR SCRUB fires in

Heathcote Valley yesterday show

how vulnerable the region is to

fast-growing blazes.

Six crews and two helicopters

fought four separate blazes

near the Heathcote River in the

afternoon, which spread across

an area of about 400m.

Tunnel Rd was closed between

Ferry and Port Hills Rds and fire

investigators were working to

determine the cause.

No one was required to be

evacuated.

However, a pregnant woman

was taken to Christchurch

Hospital by police after suffering

a medical event near the fires on

Tunnel Rd.

Nearby resident Alistair

Campbell was looking out the

window when he saw the smoke.

“Everything is dry, you can’t

afford to have a fire.”

He said the fire was in a large

paddock, where he believed

there were horses and a stable.

Senior fire risk management

officer Bruce Irvine said the

blaze shows exactly how quickly

fires can grow in the conditions,

especially near the Port Hills.

“We saw how quickly this fire

grew, anything like this is being

taken very seriously and dealt

with very quickly.

“We are going to hammer

these with a lot of resources. We

are ready, we are prepared for

this type of event and all they

(the public) have to do is give us

a call as soon as they see smoke,”

Mr Irvine said.

Proposed

parking price

hike criticised

THE CANTERBURY Employers’

Chamber of Commerce has

criticised the city council’s

proposed price hike for parking in

the central city.

Recommended increases outlined

in the city council’s Draft

Annual Plan include $4 for 1hr

on-street metered parking, an

increase of 90 cents.

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber

of Commerce chief executive

Leeann Watson said the increase

was “incredibly disappointing.”

“This works against everything

we have been fighting so hard for

over the last few years and comes

at a time when central city businesses

need support – not another

barrier,” she said.

“At the end of last year, in the

six weeks leading up to Christmas,

the central city core spending

increased 17 per cent to $42

million when compared to the

same period in the previous year.

“I am concerned that this

parking increase will slow or stall

that positive momentum just as

we are hitting our stride. I am

also concerned that this timing

coincides with us heading into

the cooler months – potentially

compounding a possible seasonal

decrease in foot traffic and

spending.”

Bid for Cathedral work

resource consent

• By Louis Day

RESOURCE CONSENT has

been lodged for stabilising works

at Christ Church Cathedral.

The proposed stabilisation

works will address severe structural

damage suffered in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake to

allow for future strengthening of

the Cathedral.

The application does not extend

to the strengthening of the

Cathedral, further resource consent

will be required for them.

The proposed works will

involve deconstruction of some

parts of the building to manage

collapse hazards and the installation

of support frames to make it

safe for workers to go inside the

Cathedral.

It will also seek to gain access

to the interior of the building for

salvage and investigation works

and retrieval of heritage items,

including the remaining stained

glass windows and organ as well

as temporary weatherproofing of

the building.

Once the stabilisation of the

building has been completed, the

plans towards strengthening and

reinstatement can advance.

The resource consent application

is still being processed by

WRECKED: The earthquake-damaged Christ Church

the city council. A city council

spokeswoman said due to the

complexity of the application

there was no time frame for

when a decision would be made

on it.

The work is expected to take

between 18 and 24 months.

It was decided the Cathedral

would be salvaged by the Anglican

Church in September 2017.

The city council has put $10

million towards the restoration.

The Crown has also made a

contribution of $10 million. The

Government has also made a $15

million loan that will not have to

be paid back if certain conditions

are met.

The church’s insurance

proceeds of about $42 million

make up for more than $90

million of the estimated $104

million total restoration cost.

Aves Invasion organiser

narrowly misses jail

in fraud sentencing

• By Sophie Cornish

THE ORGANISER of the

contentious Aves Invasion

boy racer events has narrowly

escaped jail after being

sentenced on fraud charges.

Daniel James Cossar, 26,

was sentenced to four months

community detention, nine

months of supervision and was

ordered to pay more than $8000

in reparations by Judge Mark

Callaghan in the district court

yesterday.

Judge Callaghan said Cossar’s

sentence was “substantially

reduced” from imprisonment or

home detention, due to the fact

he was able to pay his reparations

in full immediately after

the hearing.

It was revealed at the sentencing

that Cossar’s father had obtained

a loan for him to be able

to pay back the sum in full.

Cossar was sentenced on two

charges of obtaining by deception

of cash amounts over $1000

and one of under $500.

In 2018, Cossar, a car enthusiast,

made two separate Trade Me

listings selling car engines and

gearboxes and gained $3500 and

$4950 from two buyers, both of

whom contacted Cossar after the

items were received, saying they

were not what was advertised.

Neither were in working condition.

Cossar eventually ceased

contact with both buyers and

refused to refund them.

He then used a friend’s Trade

Me account to list a further 77

items, which he said he would

pay the fees for. Cossar made

some payments for the fees but

$101 was still outstanding.

Judge Callaghan said the “aggravating

features” of his offending

was that it appeared planned

and premeditated.

Cossar was instructed to pay

the reparation back in full immediately

after the sentencing

and Judge Callaghan suggested

he “pay his father back.”

The annual Aves Invasion

events, some of which were

organised by Cossar, have made

national headlines in the past after

hundreds of boy racers from

across the South Island gathered

at various spots around the city

and travelled around the four

central city avenues.

The events have previously

been described by police as

‘mass disorder.’

A LARGE fireworks display will

still go ahead at a Hagley Park

event this weekend, in spite of

the region being in a prohibited

fire season.

But, the YES Power Sparks

annual fireworks display could

still be cancelled on the day, if

weather and wind conditions on

the night are not appropriate.

A water tanker and fire engine

will be on standby as well as fire

extinguishers at every corner of

the pyrotechnic zone.

THe use of fireworks is not

banned during a prohibited

fire season, as the changing

‘seasons’, which are decided

by Fire and Emergency New

Zealand, only relate to openaired

fires.

FENZ holds the power to

prohibit or restrict sparkinducing

activities, such as

fireworks, under section 52 of

the Fire and Emergency New

Zealand Act 2017.

Said North Canterbury

principal rural fire officer

Bruce Janes: “We expect those

planning to use fireworks to

understand how dangerous

they can be and not use them

during restricted and prohibited

seasons. A significant number

of vegetation fires are caused by

fireworks.”

City council manager events

and arts Lucy Blackmore said

her team is working closely

with FENZ to plan for the

event.

“Extra precautions have

been put in place and we will

continue to monitor conditions.

“As requested by FENZ, we

will be watering the grass area

in the pyrotechnic exclusion

zone prior to the event and will

not fire on the night if wind/

weather conditions are not

appropriate,” she said.

Organisers are anticipating a

Community

boards to get

public input

• By Louis Day

THE PUBLIC will have a say

on the priorities of community

boards for the first time.

The city council is publicly

consulting on the three-year plans

of community boards which set

out their priorities for local communities.

City council head of support,

governance and partnerships John

Filsell said the idea behind the

initiative was to get community

feedback in order to inform board

priorities.

These plans will guide the

boards’ decisions on local activities,

projects and facilities and advocacy

on behalf of communities.

Each plan will identify three

priorities per ward area, so the

Burwood-Coastal Community

Board for example which comprises

of two wards will have six

priorities. Burwood-Coastal is the

only board to have its plan out for

consultation at this stage.

It has proposed prioritising service

delivery at QEII Recreation

and Sport Centre, planning for an

additional community facility in

Burwood, the transformation of

the red zone, making the area “attractive

and appealing for all” and

improving roading.

Mr Filsell said all boards would

have their plans out for public

consultation until early March.

TWO MORE people have

been seriously assaulted in

their home, less than a week

after three men were jailed for

bashing and robbing another

man on his property.

Police allege a group of five

people assaulted two Parklands

residents on Sunday morning.

One offender has been charged

with possessing a metal pole.

They were called to the

incident, on Alpine View Lane,

about 10.40am.

Both victims were taken to

hospital in serious condition, a

St John spokesman confirmed.

Two men and a woman have

been arrested while the others

are being sought.

Detective Sergeant Brian

Cameron said police are following

strong leads to find the offenders

but anyone with information

should get in touch with police or

Crimestoppers.

Police understand there was a

link between some of the offenders

and the victims and there is

no reason to believe the incident

was associated with any organised

crime groups, Detective

Sergeant Cameron said.

THREE MEN, three house fires

and not enough time to get out.

The result – they all died.

Martin Schultz, Karl Blackett

and Robert White’s deaths

still remain at the forefront

of the minds of Christchurch

firefighters.

Their deaths, along with

many other fatalities around the

country, have prompted a new

educational promotion by Fire

and Emergency New Zealand –

Escape Week.

The campaign, a first of its

type, asks New Zealanders

one simple question – are you

prepared to escape in a house

fire?

FENZ is encouraging

everyone to spend 5min creating

a household fire escape plan,

which involves a meeting point

and more than one exit point.

“Eighty to 90 per cent

of families don’t have an

escape plan,” senior fire risk

management officer Bruce Irvine

said.

But while Mr Irvine believes

it’s important for families

to create to plan, he wants

to emphasise how equally

important it is for those not

living in a tight-knit family

unit.

Three fatalities in Christchurch

in the past 12 months

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Make a plan to escape your home

FATALITY: FENZ is encouraging people who live in home

share or flatting situations to create an escape plan. It

comes after Karl Blackett died when a fire tore through his

Shaw Ave boarding house last month.

involved men, who were middleaged

and lived alone or in flatting

or shared home residential

situations.

In July, Mr Schultz, 55, and

his dog, Girl, lay dead for several

days in his Momorangi Cres,

Redwood, home until found

by someone who noticed his

windows were covered in soot.

The cooking fire had selfextinguished,

but Mr Schultz

and Girl were unable to escape

as the doors of his home were

deadlocked and the keys weren’t

easily accessible.

In October, Mr White was

found in critical condition after

a fire ripped through his Breens

Rd, Bishopdale, home.

The 69-year-old died in

hospital shortly after.

‘Eighty to 90 per cent of

families don’t have an

escape plan’

– Bruce Irvine

A neighbour, who smelt

burning and then saw thick

plumes of smokes coming from

the flat tried to save Mr White by

banging on his door.

Last month, Mr Blackett, 50,

was unable to escape when an

early-morning fire tore through

his Shaw Ave, New Brighton,

boarding house within minutes.

Other tenants managed to

escape but were unable to reach

Mr Blackett.

Said Mr Irvine: “The

demographic is consistent.

People who live alone tend to

a have a ‘she’ll be right, or I’ll

be alright’ attitude. We easily

engage with families and youth

at public events. However, for

individuals, they don’t tend to

take it on as much.

“More often than not, the

fatalities we see are due to

single occupancy or single

person environment, so from

a local perspective that is a

consideration.”

In conjunction with Escape

Week, FENZ is offering free

home visits where local fire

crews can survey homes and

help to discuss fire safety and

escape plans.

New signs

installed

warning of

fire danger

• By Sophie Cornish

NEW SIGNAGE has been put

up in extreme fire-risk areas,

encouraging recreation users to

understand the dangers.

Thirty signs have been installed

this week by Fire and Emergency

New Zealand in large urban recreation

areas.

The wider Canterbury region

remains in a prohibited fire

season, open-air fires are

banned.

Senior fire risk management

officer Bruce Irvine said the

signs are to bring attention to

the conditions and wants them

to encourage people to think

about their escape routes when

in these areas, including Bottle

Lake Forest, New Brighton beach,

Godley Head and other parks

and recreation areas in the Port

Hills.

“In Australia, people became

trapped, because their escape

route had been blocked by fire

which was moving more rapidly

than expected. If you going to

smoke there, don’t. Take your

rubbish with you, anything

reflective, glass, metal etc that

could get hot in the sun, take it

with you,” he said.

Lack of condolence book for

Mike Moore disappoints friend

• By Louis Day

A FRIEND of late prime

minister Mike Moore thinks it

is “damn rude” more was not

done to commemorate him in

Christchurch.

Mr Moore, a long-serving

Labour politician who served

Christchurch as a member of

Parliament for 21 years, representing

Papanui, Christchurch

North and Waimakariri, died at

the age of 71 last Monday.

A public funeral service will

be held in Auckland tomorrow.

Condolence books have been

provided to the public at Parliament

and will also be available at

the funeral service. However, no

condolence book will be available

in Christchurch.

Margaret Gibson who met Mr

Moore through her husband

Peter Gibson, who was involved

in the Labour Party while Mr

Moore was in office, said this was

“damn rude.”

“He was our Minister for 21

years, surely somebody here should

have done something,” she said.

“We no longer matter,

Christchurch no longer matters.”

A Department of Internal Affairs

visits and ceremonial office

spokesman said this was normal

practice. He said if any local

government entity chose to open

their own condolence book they

would be welcome to do so.

City council manager of civic

and international relations Matt

Nichols said the city council flew

its flag at half-mast in acknowledgement

of Mr Moore’s passing.

He said the city council

followed guidance from

the department on whether

condolence books are

appropriate upon the death of

prominent figures.

SHAKE IT OFF: Charlie (huntaway/staffy cross) and SPCA

canine animal attendant Chandel Kettlewell.

SUMMER IS a good time to

paws and reflect and for these

SPCA pups, they’re doing just

that.

It’s a pool paw-ty at the

Christchurch Hornby centre after

it was inundated with donations,

following a call on Facebook for

any unwanted or old backyard

pools that could make these dog’s

summer last fur-ever.

As a result, more than 15 pools

were donated, including five new

pools costing about $180 each by

Bunnings Warehouse.

SPCA community fundraising

and events co-ordinator Kelsea

Nelson-Cummins said the single

Facebook post asking for old or

unwanted pools “did really well.”

“People have been really, really

generous and the dogs, as you

can see in the photos, absolutely

love it,’’ she said.

“It’s been so hot, sometimes for

our bigger dogs, it’s nice for them

to fully submerge in water.

“Believe it or not, because we

have so many facilities they are

pretty much all being used. We

squirrelled away a couple of the

new bigger pools because as with

dogs, bless them, there is a bit of

wear and tear with them jumping

in and out of the pools.’’

Kit and Charlie are both currently

up for adoption and the

SPCA is also looking for volunteers

for its annual appeal next

month.

“We are still looking for collectors,

so if anyone is yet to sign

up and it’s on their new year

resolutions list to volunteer for

a charity, definitely do,” Miss

Nelson-Cummins said.

She had first surprised me

eating some berries while I

along. I guess it makes sense,

We’d popped round for dinner

She then handed one to her

herself to add twanging guitar

OUR PEOPLE – JED JOYCE

Chilling out in business and in spare time

Seven years ago, Jed

Joyce was selling gelato

out of a mobile cart at

the age of 15. Today he

owns three Rollickin’

Gelato stores across the

city and is showing no

signs of slowing down.

Louis Day speaks with

the young businessman

Have you always been a bit of

an entrepreneur?

Yes, I think I have always been

a bit of an entrepreneur. When I

was younger I used to sell wine

barrels from Marlborough, you

could use them as bar leaners or

cut them in half and use them

as coffee tables. I also sold swan

plants and I would leave an

honesty box and see if anyone

had left me anything at the end of

the day. At high school, I started

seriously pursuing it when I

started studying business studies

as a subject. During my early

years at high school, I spent a

lot of time at The Berry Shop as

a customer and I eventually got

offered a job there. The owner

was Jane Harrow and she taught

me a lot.

Where did you grow up?

Born and bred in Christchurch.

I went to St Bede’s College and

Christ the King School was my

primary school.

How did you come to start

Rollickin’ Gelato?

We have talked about The

Berry Shop and that is where I

learnt about working with ice

cream. When I was year 11 or 12,

me and a group got offered to go

on a trip called World Challenge

and for that we had to fundraise

to cover the costs to go over there.

My idea was that Christchurch

could use some gelato. I met

someone in Wellington who was

making gelato and got it sent

down. Obviously this was after

the earthquake so we teamed up

with Life In Vacant Spaces to fill

in a gap in the city, we were in

a mobile cart. After I had been

on the World Challenge trip I

continued with the shop because

it was going so well and I opened

it full-time with the help of a

uni student while I was at high

school. I got to the end of high

school and I could have gone to

uni to study business but instead,

I kept pushing with Rollickin’.

What do you like to do in your

free time?

I think the gym and exercise

is good, I feel like I am a lot

fresher after doing exercise. Also

hanging with friends and family.

Tramping as well, I have ticked

off a lot of great walks of New

Zealand, I decided to tick off one

every year.

What is your favourite part of

the job?

Just being able to do what I

love, something I am so excited

and passionate about every

day and just working with

such a great team. Being from

Christchurch, starting from

humble beginnings with a cart

and now having three shops, it

is just really cool to be growing

something for Christchurch.

What is your most popular

flavour?

At the moment, I would say

probably cashew street, that is

a flavour we released for the

opening of our Cashel St store. It

consists of dreamy caramel gelato

with chunky sweet cashew pieces,

dollops of dulce de leche and

chocolate cashew cream.

What is your personal

favourite?

My personal favourite would

be, the bloomberry. So that is

coconut and raspberry whipped

into creamy pink gelato, swirled

with sweet blueberry sauciness.

It also has fluffy housemade

vegan marshmallow, layered with

chewy coconut cake pieces. I love

that one because we are having a

lot of fun with vegan flavours and

WILDERNESS: Rollickin’

Gelato owner Jed Joyce has

great walks of New Zealand.

it appeals to anyone, even those

with dietary requirements.

Talk me through how you

make your gelato?

We have got a team of about

six or seven chefs and we

meet every week. We plan our

flavours, we switch out three

flavours every two weeks. At our

weekly meeting, we talk about

customer feedback, often we get

lots of customer requests around

new flavours and we do a lot of

research around that. We also

discuss ideas from staff, we have

about 35 employees now. On the

production side of it, our chefs

start at 3.30am that’s at New

Regent and Cashel Sts. So that is

two people, a baker and a gelato

maker. The baker makes all the

inclusions like the hokey pokey

the brownie chunks, the vegan

marshmallow and the sauces and

the gelato maker is taking all the

baker’s stuff like all the inclusions

and turning it into gelato.

Any exciting new flavours in

the pipeline?

For Valentine’s Day we do have

a few. We have love me tinder,

this has sweet strawberries and

cream gelato, with even more

tempting strawberry layers and

dark chocolate. We also will have

my cookie, which is salty caramel

gelato with dripping choccy

fudge sauciness and a smashing

trio of all your cookie favourites

with chunks of housemade choc

chip cookies, cookie dough and

Oreos. The perfect healer for

unrequited love. Finally, we have

the butter me up, creamy dreamy

butterscotch gelato stacked

with house-made sticky date

and dripping layers of orange

butterscotch sauciness.

How is the new store on

Cashel St going?

It is going good, it is going

really well. Basically, because I

have been doing it for six years,

the whole point of Cashel St

was to lift our dessert game.

In New Regent St our kitchen

was completely maxed out so to

lift our game we needed more

kitchen space. We have got some

more kitchen space now and the

whole team can’t wait to take

things to the next level.

Do you have any other plans

in terms of expanding the

business?

Not at this point. Maybe once

we have caught our breath we

will have a plan. Like me, the

whole team is young so everyone

has exciting ideas about what to

do next, so there is so much we

could do, but no official plans as

of yet.

Would you rule out ever

expanding the business beyond

Christchurch?

No.

Do you see yourself ever

getting into any businesses

outside of the ice cream

industry?

No. I live and breathe gelato.

In your time running

Rollickin’ Gelato, how far do

you think the central city has

come?

Hugely far. From when

I started in New Regent St

more than half the street was

vacant buildings. It just felt like

Rollickin’ and The Last Word.

Now New Regent St is fully

functioning you get a lot of foot

traffic. People don’t realise how

hard businesses in the central city

have had to fight but definitely,

in the last year, it has started to

turn.

Thursday February 13 2020 The Star

A BIG THING that bugs people

when they go into the central

city is the cost of on-street car

parking.

It is currently $3.10 an hour,

a real put off for most. There

are cheaper options such as the

multi-level car parks, which

are quite reasonable. But if you

want to leave the car north of

the square then you have few

choices.

Now the city council wants to

increase the hourly charge to $4.

That’s crazy.

Central city businesses are

understandably arching up. City

councillor James Gough is also

arching up.

Some parts of the central

city are stagnating as the big

developments such as Riverside

Market, and The Terrace attract

people and their dollars. The

cafes and bars and the market

are busy, busy.

Kit Chambers – I cannot

understand the ridiculous

other parts of the central city on

a Saturday or Sunday for lunch

or a bite in the early evening and

you generally won’t have any

problem getting a table – or a

car park.

I can’t vouch for what happens

late at night in those locations;

my night owl days appear to be

long gone.

So if car parking goes up to $4

an hour it will be even less of an

incentive for people to go into

town.

Gough told his fellow city

councillors at a meeting this

week implementing such a plan

flies in the face of what the

comments of Cr Davidson that

a decision would have to go out

for public consultation before a

recommendation can be reached.

That will take months to resolve.

IT HAS been frightening

to watch the impact of what

Overreaction to Coronavirus

Adds Salt to Wound

The decision of New Zealand

government to place temporary

restrictions to refuse entry of any

foreign travellers who leave or

transit through mainland China

after 2 February 2020 as a measure

to prevent 2019-nCoV has aroused

concerns. While it is understandable

for countries to take necessary and

proportionate measures against the

outbreak, these measures should

be based on scientific evidence

or recommendations from World

Health Organization (WHO).

The decision to close borders,

unwarranted by current situation,

is disrupting normal personnel

exchanges and practical cooperation

in various areas, and in some sense

is unnecessarily causing negative

impacts, like adding salt to the

wound.

It came at the worst timing

coinciding with the peak tourism

season and the start of new

semester. Chinese visitors and

students are not the only ones

adversely affected by the entry ban.

It is estimated that halting Chinese

tourists for two weeks is to leave a

nearly 100 million hole in tourism

earnings of New Zealand resulting

in job losses. The credibility of New

Zealand education institutions

is being harmed. In addition

to economic exchanges, the

repercussion is hampering the

friendly ties between our peoples

and may undermine mutual trust in

the long run. We are also concerned

with recent cases of xenophobia

and racism which might be further

inflamed by such an excessive

measure, spreading the more

dangerous “virus of hatred” which

was the main cause of the tragic

Christchurch shooting incident a

year ago.

WHO has made it clear that no

travel or trade restrictions against

China are recommended at this

stage. It has reiterated their call

to all countries not to impose

restrictions inconsistent with

International Health Regulations.

Director General Dr. Tedros said

such restrictions can have the effect

of increasing fear and stigma, with

little public health benefit. He urged

relevant parties to take actions

commensurate with public health

risks only and make adjustment

accordingly. WHO spokesperson

Christian Lindmeier also echoed

that proper surveillance to check

the health of incoming travellers

would be more appropriate.

In fact, there shall be no reason to

panic or overreact if an objective

and accurate analysis of the current

situation is made. The momentum

of spreading has been effectively

curbed both within and outside

China with unprecedented domestic

control. 99% of the 2019-nCoV

cases are contained in China,

and 97% of deaths are in Hubei

Province. So far the disease only

caused one death outside China

and the patient was from also

Wuhan. In terms of the case-fatality,

rate of 2019-nCoV is 2% and

comparatively much lower than that

of other epidemics such as Ebola

(40%), Mers (35%), H1N1(17.4%)

and Sars (10%).

It is also important to avoid double

standards. The current flu season in

the US has already caused infections

of 19 million people and 10

thousand deaths without triggering

adequate prevention measures

from US government. During the

2009 H1N1 outbreak which also

emerged in the US, no country has

closed their borders to American

travellers though it was defined as

an international emergency global

pandemic. I still recall it took six

months for the US government to

declare a national emergency at

then. Ironically, the US took lead in

overreacting to the coronavirus so

aggressively this time.

China is mobilizing resources

nationwide to contain the outbreak,

and we are fighting with the

international community on our

side. The UN Secretary General

and WHO Director-General have

applauded China’s forceful measures

and expressed confidence in the

ability of the Chinese government to

prevail over the epidemic. Leaders

of many countries have expressed

their support and sympathies for

China. I have once and again been

moved by the encouraging words

from local friends in all circles

demonstrating solidarity with

Chinese people at this difficult

moment.

The epidemic is only temporary

while friendship and cooperation

will stay in the long run. We can

only defeat this outbreak with global

solidarity. China is committed to

working with all other countries

including New Zealand to tide over

the difficulties, prevail over the

outbreak, and ensure the health and

safety of each and every member of

our community with a shared future

for mankind.

THEATRE/ARTS

Listen to British star’s

acting career – and a

worthy cause will benefit

British stage, film

and television

actor David Suchet

will arrive in the

city next week

to reflect on his

successful career

and to revisit some

of his most iconic

roles. He spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

“I THINK we all worship

our own God and if our

God is money then hey,

perhaps we are willing to

commit suicide in order

to serve that God but I say

open your eyes and wake

up.”

That is English Emmy

award-winning actor

David Suchet’s – the star of

the long-running British

mystery drama television

series Agatha Christie’s

Poirot – outlook on global

warming.

It is also the reason why

a proportion of the proceeds

from ticket sales

during his upcoming tour

of New Zealand has gone

to supporting Australia’s

bush fire relief effort.

The 73-year-old British

star will fly into the city on

Tuesday to tell the story

of his career in film and

stage at the town hall as

part of his show David

Suchet: Poirot & More: A

Retrospective.

Suchet is one of many

international celebrities

to donate and speak out

about the bush fires.

It comes as Australia is

the world’s third-largest

exporter of fossil carbon,

and with 53 new coal mines

proposed. The Australian

government plans to double

its existing production by

2030.

“We want Australia to

feel that even though this

is a British show, we are

giving to Australia. It is an

indication of how important

we feel this tragedy

that has happened should

awaken global awareness,”

Suchet said.

For 25 years Suchet

played the Belgian detective

Hercule Poirot –

performing in all 74 Poirot

television movies before it

ended in 2013.

But although he acknowledged

he may be

remembered for his role as

Poirot – as it has been seen

by more than 750 million

people worldwide, he said

“one of the gifts the industry”

is he has never been

tied down to the role.

The London-born

actor has played many

iconic roles including Lady

Bracknell in The Importance

of Being Earnest,

Cardinal Benelli in The

Last Confession and Freud

in the show of the same

name – and will be discussing

some of these roles

as part of his show.

“I am hoping audiences

will take away quite a lot.

They will take away my

early life, take away my

early career – my drama

school, my early repertory

theatre experiences, my

experience with the 13

years with (The Royal)

Shakespeare Company.

The climax of the show

will be me showing and

describing in detail how I

put together the wonderful

character of Hercule

In a bid to inspire

the next generation of

Christchurch artists,

Suchet said he is hoping

the city’s young and senior

actors along with writers

will be sitting in the

audience.

The opportunities are

out there and I just want to

encourage my profession,

the youth of my profession

to take it very seriously and

keep training.

“It is a very difficult

profession, I have had my

periods of unemployment

like everybody else.’’

But Suchet said,

hopefully with a good

agent and enough

opportunity a young actor

should not be discouraged.

14km, 6km Community Fun Run Event

#Areyouupforit? www.city2surf.co.nz

weeK fIve: Look up and accept the challenge

The training programme will stay the same this week as last week but may I suggest that you go and explore the geographical

options you have for your training. This means not only exploring your own neighbourhood but also venturing to places like

the Burwood Plantation, the beach or the Port Hills. Of course it takes a bit more time as you need transport so the weekend

might be the best time to do this. The best surface to run on is soft, like grass, sand or gravel; it is easier on the legs so try and

do the majority of your sessions on these types of surfaces if possible. If you have time, venture into the Port Hills. A good place

to start is the track which runs between the sign of the Takeha and the sign of the Kiwi. This is a gradual incline which you can do

out and back for as far as you can comfortably go. Once you have mastered this track you can venture beyond anywhere in the

port hills. Jogging on the Port Hills walking tracks takes a bit of concentration as the terrain underfoot can be uneven. Walking

or jogging and running uphill will automatically increase the intensity a fraction because you use larger muscle groups. It is a

type of endurance training which will accelerate your strength and fitness with incredible views of our beautiful city as an extra

bonus. Going up, take small steps and take your time so you stay mainly in zone 1 and 2. Remember that zone 1 is perceived as

an easy effort which you can maintain for very long periods of time. In zone 2 you will get slightly puffed but you can still have a

conversation. Initially take it easy on the downhill. It can be hard on the legs, so go careful. At this time of the year the beach is also

an attractive option for a workout. The soft sand will add an extra dimension and help the strength development. On hot days go

for the forest or parks as the shade provided by the trees will protect you from the blazing sun. Hagley Park is of course the jewel

in the crown as far as parks go with lots of variety and enough options never to have to do the same route.

To achieve this goal

you need to develop

some awareness around

the basic requirements

of exercising for health

and fitness. First and

foremost this has to do

with 3 key principles:

1. How often do you train? To

improve your level of health and

fitness you will need to aim for 4

sessions per week. 2 or 3 sessions per

week will only maintain what you have and 1

session per week is definitely not sufficient.

2. How long are your sessions? The

duration of your sessions will generally

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at?

The good thing about the programme

is that all your runs will be done at

submaximal pace, also called conversation

pace. That means a pace where you can still

talk. If you can’t talk you are going too fast

and you are likely to come to a grinding halt

sooner or later.

This programme and accompanying information are written

as a guide only. If you are concerned about your health at

any stage please undergo a health check with your GP.

TIP of The weeK

Comfort during your training session will

greatly add to your enjoyment. Small issues

like shoes which do not quite fit, wrongly

sized, insufficient or too much clothing can

all have big consequences like blisters, cold

exposure, heatstroke or chaffing issues. In

a previous article I have already mentioned

the importance of well-fitting shoes but the

same applies to your running shorts and

top. For women there are special sports

bra’s to add to comfort and males can

prevent the much maligned “nipple rash”

with preventative taping over the affected

areas.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question

came from June Commons.

Congratulations!

Some of the fruit on my peach

Q tree has mould. The fruit

affected is all well placed on the

branches and not too close

together. What can I do to prevent this

happening next season as well?

A

Unfortunately, some years and on some peach trees, the fruit

will show signs of signifi cant mould while still on the tree. It

is very frustrating, especially when there is a good crop of

peaches!

A peach tree’s natural form is very crowded and dense, and this leads

to a loss of air movement and less sunlight reaching the fruit - both

contributing to mould developing.

To lessen the chances of this happening in future years, signifi cant

winter pruning is required to ensure there is plenty of space between

the main branches and that smaller side branches growing inward are

completely removed. Be meticulous in removing any mummifi ed i.e. old,

dead fruit that is sometimes left on the tree in late summer.

In spring, fertilise with fruit tree fertilisers to ensure the tree is growing

vigorously and mulch as summer arrives to help retain soil moisture.

Do not grow other large bushes or trees too close to the peach tree as this

will reduce air movement through the existing peach tree

and contribute to the problem.

Products to try are Daltons Garden Time Fruit &

Citrus Fertiliser and Daltons Mulch & Grow.

Read our How to Grow Fruit Guide for more advice:

PRIZE

PACK!

WIN a Daltons Summer Garden Survival Pack!

Mulching is the magic word when it comes to successful gardening during the hot summer

months. Apply a thick layer on top of soil around plants, trees, and especially pots, to aid water

retention. Always water plants regularly and deeply in the early morning or evening, avoiding the

hottest part of the day.

Each pack is valued at over $100 and contains 2 x Garden Time Landscape Bark

(40L), 2 x Besgrow Coir Briquette (9L), 2 x Garden Time Compost (40L), Garden Time

Almost endless list of container plants

GROWING plants in containers

is a popular way to bring patios,

outdoor rooms and the garden

to life.

Plants soften edges, add colour,

vibrancy and in some cases

perfume to areas where they are

placed.

Often referred to as the gardens

accessories, cleverly placed pots

and containers create a statement,

just as a necklace or belt does

when added to an outfit.

Containers create focal points

to enhance areas of the garden

and draw your eye away from

places you don’t wish to highlight.

The list of plants that happily

thrive in pots and containers is

almost endless.

Generally most plants can

adapt to life in a container providing

they have enough room

for their root zone, plenty of

fertiliser, water and the correct

sun or shade requirements.

Be aware containers restrict the

root growth of plants; this can determine

how tall or wide a plant

can grow. Not only the leaves and

flowers need room to grow but

also the root zone.

Tips for container

gardening success

Site – Place pot/container carefully

as the site will govern what

plant types will happily thrive.

Choose plants to suit the situation.

Size – Pots and containers vary

in shape, size and colour. Ensure

the container is big enough to

house the plants you wish to

grow. Patio planters come in a

range of colours and provide a

very effective planting option.

Drainage – All pots and containers

require drainage holes.

Don’t be fooled and think if there

are no holes it will save on watering.

The roots may drown or root

diseases will occur.

Choice – Plant choice is endless

so have fun and add your

personality to your combinations.

Bulbs, flowers and herbs make

brilliant planting combinations

with strong foliage plants. Change

them as often as you like.

Watering – Keep plants well

watered, seep watering a few

times a week is ideal. Light watering

daily encourages the roots to

stay near the surface, meaning the

plant may not be well anchored

in the pot and could blow over.

When pots and containers dry

out it’s very hard to get the moisture

back into the soil. Always

blend in re-wetting granules. It

enables the soil to retain moisture

and make it available to the

plants.

Feeding – Potting mixes will

need to be topped up with slow

release fertiliser each season to

ensure blooming results. Use a

controlled release plant food.

Movement – Twist your pots

and containers frequently to

ensure all sides get even amounts

of light.

Re-potting – Check potted

plants seasonally. The only sure

way to discover the state of the

roots is to remove the plant

and examine them carefully. If

fresh root tips are showing over

the surface of the root ball, or

forming a thick spiral at the base,

then re-potting into a larger

container is necessary. Containers

are versatile because they are

portable and easy to maintain. A

well planted and placed container

will last for years.

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport priced for value

CAR MAKERS have become

increasingly aware of the need for

safety.

I applaud that, and most of

the cars now sold new are high

on safety kit. Mitsubishi, in

particular, build with state-of-theart

passive and active elements.

However, there are some drivers

who don’t want or need all of the

trick warning features, and in most

cases manufacturers have offered

the function to switch many of

them off – lane departure warning,

blind spot monitoring, rear cross

traffic alert, to name a few.

Mitsubishi has gone one step

further, it has completely deleted

some of those electronic safety

elements from the Outlander, not

all variants, but a limited edition

Outlander Sport has arrived and

it sits a value-packed $39,990.

For the alarmists, that hasn’t

affected the Outlander’s excellent

five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety rating,

it is still intact, and if you have just

$40k to spend on an Outlander

and want those passive features,

the XLS has them, along with

VRX ($45k).

To my way of thinking, the

Outlander Sport is great buying,

and it would be the sport utility

vehicle for me, it is one which

allows the driver to trust his

own judgement around spatial

awareness.

The Outlander has been with us

Mirac – A Tribute to

Speedway Legend Ronnie

Moore

By Allan Batt

Reviewed by Ross Kiddie

WHEN I was a teenager and

living close to Templeton

Speedway (now Ruapuna),

Saturday night was always

speedway night.

That was during the 1970s, and

by that time solo motor-cycle

rider Ronnie Moore had already

since the early 2000s and, while it

has had several model lifecycles

along the way, the concept hasn’t

changed, it is the quintessential

SUV that has blitzed the New

Zealand new car market over the

years, and has been a popular

used Japanese import. It stands

out for its ease of use, practicality,

functionality and, what’s more, it’s

just a darn nice vehicle to drive, it

feels so right in all areas.

The new Sport is available

only as a limited edition model,

the first batch has a production

run of just 300 units, although

another shipment is likely to

follow.

The Sport is a four-wheel-drive

model and comes with seven seats

(fronts heated and electrically

adjustable), full leather trim,

electric sunroof, electric tailgate,

keyless entry and ignition, and

8in multi-media dashboard

display. It also gets extra cosmetic

treatment – big spoiler, 18in black

wheels, and a host of piano black

cosmetic trim detailing.

Elsewhere, the Outlander Sport

is the desirable SUV which I

mentioned in my introduction.

It has a comfortable interior

environment, and is spacious.

The cargo area measures up to

1608-litres, which is enough

capacity to carry those tricky

items we tend to move from time

to time such as the cardboard

box the Kiddie-household’s new

won two world championship

events.

I remember Moore vividly

at Templeton, along with other

Christchurch greats Barry Briggs,

and Ivan Mauger.

Moore had a characteristic style

and elegance on the cinders that

stood out from all others, and

the sight of those three riders

well distanced from the rest of

the field was recognition of their

talent and skills.

In total, Moore competed in 14

world championship events and

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER SPORT: Bargain price at $39,990.

television came in.

While it carries a Sport badge,

mechanically the Outlander

retains the tried and true

powerplant which has essentially

served it since its introduction.

It’s a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol

engine (diesel available in other

variants), and is hooked to a

continuously variable automatic.

Mitsubishi claims 126kW

and 224Nm of torque from the

engine, these are par figures and

contribute to good performance

under all conditions – bearing in

mind that many SUVS are used

for towing, and the Outlander

in this form is rated with a

1600kg tow rating. In terms

of acceleration, there’s enough

strength from under the bonnet

to record a 9sec standstill to

100km/h time.

It is also an engine that has

been continually developed so

was podium placed several times.

He also claimed a multitude of

team tests wins, pairs and solos

globally. His comprehensive list

of achievements are documented

in Mirac.

Of course, Moore’s racing

pedigree wasn’t just confined

to speedway, he also competed

on four wheels and continued

the family legacy riding on the

legendary Wall of Death motorcycle

stunt show.

Mirac is a pictorial tribute

of the legend that is Ronnie

that fuel usage is minimised.

Mitsubishi also claims a

combined cycle average of

7.2-litres per 100km. That is

consistent with the fuel usage

readout in the evaluation car, it

was constantly sitting around

9l/100km during both inner city

driving and on a highway loop.

I used the roads near the

Selwyn River to evaluate the

Sport, it sits beautifully on the

road and whisks through the

air without overly noticeable

sound.

Power is channelled to the

front wheels – spreading to all

four when slippage up front is

detected. A centre console switch

can be pressed to dial in fullyengaged

four-wheel-drive and

centre diff lock.

I only left the seal for a short

excursion into the loose shingle.

SUVs aren’t really off-roaders

Moore, the title coming from the

nickname Moore earned through

performing miracles on a motorcycle.

Moore died in 2018, but his

legacy continues at Ronnie Moore

Park near West Melton, and Batt’s

tribute is also recognition of how

well Moore was regarded in the

speedway community.

Mirac has also reproduced

the Christchurch Star-Sun

newspaper poster recognising

Moore’s first world championship

win.

OLD BOYS RUGBY

ARGENTINA TRIP, FEBRUARY 2020

Old Boys chasing third title at Patagonia Cup

When the High School Old Boys rugby team heads to Argentina

this month for the Patagonia Cup, it will be for a tournament

that has grown from humble beginnings to a major southern

hemisphere sporting event.

In 1999, Old Boys answered the call for an international

challenger at the inaugural competition.

It came, it played, it conquered – and did so again at the

following tournament in 2001.

Since then it has been chasing a third elusive title. With a

string of finals appearances, this year will make an eleventh

consecutive crack at the cup. “We’ve got a very proud history in this

tournament, given we were the inaugural foreign team entered in

the competition,” says tour organiser Ken Pope.

Pope says the club has the talent to mount a serious challenge

and pull it off “but we’ve got our work cut out for us.”

“We’ve seen the skill levels gradually rising in the local game over

there but I think we’ve got the capability in our squad to compete.”

he says.

There are some significant challenges to overcome if we are

to be successful. The impacts of long travel, changing time zones,

extremely hot conditions, the hard grounds and the different

refereeing styles and interpretations. Fortunately for us this is not an

unfamiliar environment to us and we can hopefully adapt and use

this to our advantage.”

This year, the Old Boys squad, made up

of 21 players from divisions 1 and 2 and

its colts grade, will benefit from the preseason

tour which will see them competing

against strong and much older opposition.

The tournament is based in the city

of Bahia Blanca, some 600 kilometres

south of the capital Buenos Aires. The

tournament kicks off on 18 February 2020

with the team likely to play 2 games on the opening day, two games

on the Thursday and a final on the Saturday. While the games are

shortened to 25 minutes each way there is a lot of rugby crammed

into a short timeframe.

This year, “the greatest little club in the world” will once again be

the only foreign side entered in the biennial tournament, although

Australian, South African, South American and American teams

have participated in past events.

In its 21-year history, the

Patagonia Cup has expanded from

rugby to include basketball, softball

and women’s hockey. In recognition

of the global growth of women’s

rugby they have integrated a

women’s 7’s competition this year.

Pope says the trip provides a

unique opportunity for our club

players and is a valuable cultural

and playing experience.

The touring side will be coached

by Jimmy Hema, who coaches the

Old Boys division 1 side and Craig

Blanchfield.

“It’s been a major undertaking

to once again get this across the line. It is an extremely expensive

place to get to and we couldn’t have done this without our

unwavering support of our friends, family, loyal sponsors, the club

and supporters,” Pope says.

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CRUSADERS are

coming off a rare defeat,

but they haven’t hit the

panic button this week

ahead of tomorrow night’s

match against the Blues in

Auckland.

Scott Robertson’s men

come into the round three

clash on the back of a frustrating

15-23 loss to the

Chiefs in Hamilton.

Robertson says the main

learnings from the game

are around momentum,

executing in critical moments

and making good

decisions – not only from

his players, but officials.

“We weren’t beaten on

effort it was just a couple of

details and calls that didn’t

go our way, and that’s

footy. They’re a good side

the Chiefs. It was really

important they win their

first game at home and

there was a lot of passion,”

said Robertson.

“We created a lot of

opportunities. It would

have been nice to have a

couple of decisions go our

way.”

Recent history would

have the Crusaders as

heavy favourites in Auckland.

The Crusaders have

defeated the Blues in their

last 10 Super Rugby meetings.

The last time they

came out on the wrong

side of the ledger was in

2014 when the Blues won

35-24 at Eden Park.

However, Robertson

believes the opening

two rounds of this year’s

competition has shown

what Blues are capable of,

particularly in the final 10

minutes of their 32-12 win

over the Warratahs at the

weekend.

They can rip you apart.

They’ve got a lot of power

and they’re well structured,

Leon [McDonald] is

a good coach. We expect

nothing, but the best from

them. It’s a good rivalry,”

said Robertson.

The Crusaders will be

boosted by the return of

involved season for the

Crusaders since earning a

Super Rugby contract in

2017.

The 24-year-old Irishman

moved to Christchurch

almost seven years

ago and began playing

for New Brighton before

making his way through

the ranks.

There was definitely no

expectations. I just kind of

came over for a little bit of

footy, to meet a new crowd

of people and be in a different

part of the world. I

guess when I got into the

academy and then went

through the Canterbury

team that’s when it started

becoming a bit of a dream.

But, when I first came over

playing for the Crusaders

wasn’t an expectation,”

said Jager.

The former Ireland under-18

schools’ rep says the

tutelage of playing under

Owen Franks has been a

key to his development.

One man who knows

what it’s like to play with

both well is hooker Codie

Taylor. He says there’s not

much difference between

the two.

“Ollie’s really stepped

up this year. He’s had a

couple of [injury] setbacks

over his career. I actually

remember when he

showed up in Christchurch

as an 18-year-old.

“He was playing

blindside flanker and I

thought he was probably

30 at that stage, the way

he looks. He’s a beast. He’s

strong, fit and eager to

learn which is awesome

to have when you lose

someone like Owen

Franks,” said Taylor.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

​Panthers celebrate

club stalwart

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER WARRIOR Corey

Lawrie is winding up for yet

another year of playing premier

grade league on the cusp of his

40th birthday.

For more than 20 years Lawrie

has been helping the Hornby

Panthers clubrooms make a

decent turnover after games.

However, on Saturday night it

could be his best effort yet when

around 200 people help him

celebrate his birthday there.

Following this weekend Saturdays

will soon return to a familiar

feel with Lawrie locked in for

another season with the Panthers

premier side. The second-rower

had planned to play his first campaign

in his 40s primarily from

the bench. However, the loss of

several players to Australia and

other clubs means he’s likely to

play a key role for the Panthers

once again.

“I think we’re still going to

have a very competitive team,

we’re just not going to have the

superstar power we had last year.

Sometimes that can be a good

thing because we have to change

the way we play and grind a wee

bit harder,” said Lawrie.

Lawrie began his career with

Hornby and made his premiers

debut as a 20-year-old. He was 27

when he made his NRL debut for

the Warriors in April 2007. He

played four first grade games that

year before spending a season in

England with Doncaster.

He hasn’t done too much

slowing down since then when it

comes to preparation. The Panthers

started preseason training

in mid-January. However, since

the completion of last year’s competition

Lawrie hasn’t taken his

foot off the throttle with around

two circuit and weight sessions

each week. He also credits his

day job as a scaffolder as playing

a role in staying fit.

“My preseason never stops. I’m

AGELESS: Scaffolding is keeping former Warriors player

in his 40s.

like a dinosaur, if I stop training

I’ll become extinct. If I wasn’t

playing I’d go home, get fat and

be bored. It keeps me active and

keeps the kgs off.”

During his time with the

Panthers Lawrie has won five

Pat Smith Trophy grand-finals.

However, the last four years have

seen the Panthers defeated in

each grand-final by the Linwood

Keas. Although a rivalry has

grown between the two clubs in

that time he still rates Hornby’s

bitter rivalry with the Halswell

Hornets as his favourite.

The Panthers defeated the Hornets

in extra-time of consecutive

grand-finals in 2012 and 2013.

The peak of the rivalry also saw

an all-in brawl between the two

sides during a round-robin meeting

in 2013.

“I remember one game

Halswell got all of their old boys

down in one corner of the field.

I made a break and was about

to score a try. I got to about the

20-metre line and just looked towards

and gave them all the finger

before I scored,” said Lawrie.

They came up to me after

the game and said ‘this is what

we love’. That’s what I love too,

after the game you’re all mates

and have a beer, but on the field

everyone likes a bit of niggle and

character.”

Lawrie says the landscape

of league in Christchurch has

changed since he first began

playing premiers and admits the

level of the competition isn’t as

high as it has been in the past.

“It’s just the number of players

in Christchurch these days.

When we were playing Bartercard

Cup everyone still had really

good premier teams all the way

through. Now if you’re a reasonable

player and keep yourself in

good nick you can still compete,

but the quality isn’t what it used

to be.”

This year may be Lawrie’s last

playing full-time for the premier

side, but he has a motivation

to keep lacing up the boots in

seasons to come. He hopes to

play senior rugby league with his

17-year-old son Jason - who will be

eligible to play seniors next year.

“I’d like to be able to play a

year or two alongside him in

reserve grade, that’s what I’m

aiming to get to,” said Lawrie.

Start thinking

outside the Boks

DO WE really need South

Africa?

If the Rugby World Cup

champions want to bugger

off to Europe and turn the six

nations into the seven nations

they can take their Super

Rugby teams with them.

At the weekend a UK tabloid

claimed that the Springboks

could be playing alongside the

current northern heavyweights

in an expanded competition as

soon as 2024.

The decision for South Africa

to align with Europe makes a

lot of sense not only when it

comes to timezones, but financially

as well.

It’s worth noting most of

the Six Nations players and

fans don’t want them and

who could argue with them.

It seems those in Europe have

cool enough heads to realise

if it’s not broken don’t fix it.

If only those same cool heads

could have been around when

we started adding extra teams

to Super Rugby for fun.

If South Africa were to go

the same two positives can be

said about New Zealand and

Australian rugby aligning with

Asia. In terms of the Rugby

Championship, adding Japan

in place of South Africa is a big

step down.

However, the loss of South

Africa’s four Super Rugby sides

and the addition of another

team in Asia could be the ticket

towards fixing the competition

which seems to lose more and

more relevance by the day.

It’s no secret that Asia

makes sense financially.

Unfortunately, for Super

Rugby the Sunwolves haven’t

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

offered much in the way of

competitiveness. However, if

New Zealand Rugby was to

allow our top players to play

for the Asia franchises and still

be eligible for the All Blacks -

much like those given leeway

to play in Japan’s Top League

– the teams will not only gain

relevance competitively on the

field but financially in some of

the globes biggest markets.

We have nothing to gain

from the likes of Sam Whitelock

and Brodie Retallick playing

in the Top League.

However, if they were playing

for the likes of the Sunwolves

they would be bolstering the

stature of Super Rugby while

also being great marketing

tools for the All Blacks and

rugby as a whole in Japan or

China which would make sense

as a second Asian super rugby

destination.

The model of five New

Zealand, four Australian, an

Argentinian and two Asian

teams would also return the

competition to a 12 team and

11-week competition. If this

year’s model worked under the

same format it could still finish

on June 20, but would have

started at the end of March

rather than in January.

Yes South Africa would

be a big loss to the Rugby

Championship, but when it

comes to Super Rugby I’d

rather watch us play two Asian

teams – with a scattering

of New Zealand talent – in

a similar time-zone to us

than get up at 3am to watch

a South African team it feels

like we have no real rivalry

with because of the lopsided

conference system.

Rams hope to cover costs

with Breakers’ play-offs bid

• By Gordon Findlater

NO ONE in Christchurch has

been sweating on the Breakers

making their current last-gasp

push for the ANBL play-offs

than Canterbury Rams general

manager Caleb Harrison.

Harrison likely isn’t one of the

more die-hard Breakers supporters

in Christchurch, nor does he

have a gambling problem. However,

being responsible for bringing

the Breakers to Christchurch,

he’s had an invested interest in

Friday’s game being a do or die

encounter.

With the Breakers winning

their last three games on the trot

the stage is now set tomorrow

night at Horncastle Arena for

one of the Auckland based franchise’s

biggest matches in recent

history and tickets are selling

fast. They play the South East

Melbourne Phoenix in their final

round-robin match and need a

win to likely book a spot in the

play-offs.

“It’s been very stressful to say

the least. I’ve felt like I’ve been

part of the games,” said Harrison.

JACKPOT: Canterbury Rams manager Caleb Harrison is one

happy man after the Breakers remarkable late push for the

play-offs.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

If the Breakers were out of the

play-off picture there’s no denying

tomorrow’s game had the

potential to flop in terms of hype.

Harrison admits to being a

nervous wreck watching the

Breakers most recent 91-87 win

over the Brisbane Bullets last

Friday. He was anticipating the

Rams would be running the

Breakers game at a loss when

they fell behind by eight midway

through the third period, only

to haul themselves back into the

contest again.

Since the Breakers defeated the

Bullets to keep their season alive

around 400 tickets have sold

each day. As of 3pm Wednesday

there were fewer than 500 tickets

remaining.

With the costs of bringing the

game to Christchurch now looking

like they will be covered, future

high profile games in Christchurch

are looking more likely.

“It puts us in a position where

we can take further risks if

we’re going to recover our costs

which was looking questionable

before this play-off push,” said

Harrison.

In December, The Rams brought

the Breakers to Horncastle Arena

but were unable to recoup their

costs on that occasion with only

3400 tickets being sold.

The big thing with it is the

kids in Christchurch get to see

these games. The real winners

are these 12 or 13-year-old kids

that can go along to a game now.

Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able

to see their heroes in person.”

The Rams are owned by

Caleb’s brother Andrew and

his wife Nicky, who resurrected

the team in 2014. Since then

the Rams have brought a

number of high profile games to

Christchurch including the Tall

Blacks’ Asia qualifying game

against Jordan in 2018 and the

NBL final four in 2019.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding

districts we are blessed with an extensive

array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship, display

innovative design ideas and present a

snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle

featuring all the latest in materials, fittings

and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under a

roof that you may just select for your new

home.

At a show home you can ask questions,

take notes and compare them to other

builders’ presentations. You don’t have to

visualise or imagine full scale from a photo

in a glossy, you can simply see at a glance,

often instinctively, features you like, things

you would avoid and clever innovation that

you never would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail, from design,

construction and finish through to interior

decor, outdoor living and landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to get a

good idea of pricing, discover what is good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long term returns. Check
