It is the Papanui HighSchool

her exhibition.

She has resurrected them

Hanmer plan change gets nod

By ROBYN BRISTOW

A12.97 hectare block of land

on the east side of Argelins

Road in Hanmer Springs

could soon be opened up to

houses, aretirement village

and preschool.

Morford Properties has

successfully applied for a

plan change to allow the land

to be included within the

town’s boundary and be

rezoned from rural to

residential 1H.

The plan change was

publicly notified in

September last year,

attracting eight submissions.

Ahearing for the privately

requested plan change was

held on March 20 this year

before independent

commissioner Dean Chrystal,

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black

and Cr Geoff Shier.

The hearing panel

recommended approving it

with afew adjustments, and

its recommendations were

approved by the Hurunui

District Council last week.

The site proposal includes

provision for up to 90

residential lots, mostly

around 500 square metres,

with larger lots along the

western boundary.

Aretirement village of

eight townhouses, 22 villas,

20 serviced apartments and

20 care beds is also planned.

Submitters raised issues of

loss of the rural, open

outlook, density, the

geotechnical risk, the risk of

flooding, property

devaluation, landscaping and

storm and wastewater

management.

Some were also concerned

the Pitch NPutt golf facility

could be lost to the

development.

However, council planner

Kelsey Bewley, in areport on

the plan change, said the

Pitch NPutt issue was a

private one, not aresource

management issue.

‘‘Therefore the loss of the

Pitch NPutt cannot be

considered as part of the plan

change assessment.’’

Youth hit badly by

Covid-19 job losses

By DAVID HILL

Youngpeople are being

disproportionately affected by Covid­19

job losses.

How to engage young peopleinthe

recoverywas just one of the questions

askedatthe Waimakariri Jobs Summit

held at the Rangiora RSAonFriday,

organised by Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey

and Dean Percy, managingdirectorof

creative agency The Mark.

Whilenational scenarios predict

unemploymentcould hit 9percent,youth

unemployment‘‘could trackashigh as

25%’’, Mr Doocey warned.

‘‘We are already seeingyoung people

disproportionately affected,’’ Enterprise

NorthCanterbury business development

manager Miles Daltonagreed.

Workshopparticipants wondered if

therewere opportunities for ‘‘tech

apprenticeships’’ to engage youngpeople,

whileconcerns were expressed at the time

and expense involved with on­the­job

training, especially in uncertain times.

Deputy Mayor Neville Atkinson, who

runs the Kaiapoi Community Care and

Employment Trust, says socialenterprises

and not­for­profit organisations can play a

valuable roleinworking alongsidefirms to

‘‘produce work­readypeople’’.

Keynote speaker, National MP and

former merchantbankerAndrewBayly,

said he initially thoughtCovid­19 ‘‘would

be a12to18­monthscenario’’.

‘‘I’ve got to sayinthe last couple of days

I’ve actually changed my mind. I’ve

become alot gloomier.’’

Developments globally tended to

indicate Covid­19 could lead to afour to

five­year recession and it could be longer,

Mr Baylysaid. But New Zealand was in a

good positioncompared to other countries

because of its relatively low debt levels of

20% of grossdomestic product, whichwas

set to doubleinjust threemonths and

doubleagaininthe next four years.

By comparison the UnitedStates’ debt

level was 107% of GDP beforeCovid­19,

while European countriesaveraged67%.

‘‘The wagesubsidy has got us through

the lockdown, but when that comes off

there will be some difficulties and Ithink

we will see somebusinesses failing.’’

Agriculture wasplaying avital rolein

keeping New Zealand working,but more

neededtobedone to help recovery, Mr

Bayly said.‘‘We needtodothe large­scale

infrastructure projects, but we need to do

large­scale integrated developments, for

example house­building,becausethat’s

what employs people.

‘‘We need to welcome international

students, but they willhave to stay here.

They won’t be able to flitback and forth.

And we needthe technologytoenable

more people to work from home.Ithink we

should be thinking thatthis willgoon

longerthan we planned at the outset.’’

New Zealand has already reached‘‘peak

cow’’,but therewere opportunities in

other producesuch as avocadosand

kiwifruit,and the red meat sector is more

profitable thanithas been in years.

Mr Baylysaidhewas impressed with the

optimismshown by Waimakariri

businesses.

Mr Doocey said aresearcher had been

engaged to contact businessesfor

interviewsand he planstoengage with

local youth to get ayouth perspective.

Findings willbeshared withthe local

business sector, he said.

Upgrade now more pressing

By DAVID HILL

Planstorefurbish Rangiora’smain

council building have taken on greater

urgency after an engineering

assessment.

Apreliminary scopeofwork

assessment suggests partsofthe

Rangiora service centremay meet only

40 percent of the new building standard.

“The building’s ratingislower than

previously believeddue to achange in

an engineeringassessmentofthe

ductile strength of the steelmesh

reinforcing in the concrete floor in part

of the building upstairs,”Waimakariri

District Council chief executiveJim

Palmer says. It had previously been

thought the building met 67% of the

standard,ormore.

“Based on the information we have to

date,strengthening work is required to

reduce therisk of apartial collapseof

the floor in the event of alarge

earthquake.’’

As aprecaution, adecision has been

madetotemporarily limit staff and

public access to affected parts.

All services and functions will

continue to operate as closetonormalas

possible, with the public still ableto

access public areas while thecouncil

awaitsamore detailed report.

An upgrade hasbeen in the pipeline

for some time,with plans scaled back as

the council sought savings becauseof

Covid­19, with the spend now expected

to be 30% of the original budget.

Strategy and engagement manager

Simon Markham says planned work will

include upgrading theheating and

ventilation. ‘‘Itwon’trequire us to be

entirely out of the building, but there

willbedisruption.’’

The council will continue to employ

flexibleworking arrangements for staff.

Further work on the Rangiora service

centre will be considered in next year’s

New technology in the supermarket aisles

5

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Technology beat good old

fashioned slog in ashop­off at

PAK’nSAVE Rangiora on

Tuesday morning.

Two North Canterbury News

readers who won adraw took to

the aisles using identical

shopping lists —one armed

with the new SHOP’nGo device,

while the other shopped

conventionally.

Rangiora’s Carolyn Lane,

who used the new device,

completed her shop several

minutes ahead of Barry

Lennox, from Kaiapoi.

All concentration .. . Barry

Lennox studies his shopping list

during the shop­off.

Carolyn says the biggest timesaver

with the device was at the

checkout because her shop had

already been tallied and she

packed it in her trolley as she

shopped.

All she had to do was pay.

Meanwhile, Barry had to

wheel through acheckout, put

his groceries on the counter to

be scanned, and then pack

them.

Their efforts earned each of

them a$200 PAK’nSAVE

voucher, while many others will

also benefit from their efforts.

Owner­operators James and

Catherine Flanagan gifted the

competition groceries to food

banks.

People involved in anew

collaborative approach to

ensure enough food is getting to

food banks were on­hand to

accept the groceries.

Tessa Sturley, community

team manager at the

Waimakariri District Council,

says the collaborative approach

was born out of the Covid­19

lockdown to ensure asupply of

food was available to those in

the community who needed it.

It is led by Nicki Carter,

social services Waimakariri

facilitator, and Rachel

Thornton, the community

development facilitator for the

council.

Mr Flanagan says the

SHOP’nGO device went live on

Monday this week, and was

already proving popular, with

many registering to use it for

their grocery shop.

Common sense needed

over fresh water policy

By CAM HENDERSON, president of

Everyonewantsimprovements to the

achieve it, howfast it needsto happen,

and at what cost.

Federated Farmers is encouraged

by signs of growing recognition that

Project under way ... An artist’s impression of the six­metre high canopy which will

redirect falling rocks away from the road and road users.

Rock project begins

Work to install permanent rockfall

protection on State Highway 1

between Peketa and the Parititahi

tunnels, south of Kaikoura, began last

Monday.

The work is expected to be

completed by Christmas.

It will cause delays for motorists of

up to 35 minutes on weekdays between

9am and 5pm during the first month of

work.

Kaikoura Mayor Craig Mackle says it

will be great to get the work done.

‘‘There will be considerable

disturbance but it is avery small price

to pay for the outcome.’’

In April last year amotorist was

lucky to escape serious injury when

four large rocks fell on his vehicle

from the rock face near the tunnels.

Other rock­protection measures

have already been installed in the

area, including adraped mesh fence

and barriers.

Recovery push in Kaikoura

The Kaikoura District Council has joined

forces with Te Runanga oKaikoura to

lead the district’s Covid­19 recovery.

MayorCraig Mackle says the

partnership has beenevolving since

October,asthe councillooked to the

future as part of its ongoingearthquake

recoveryefforts.

The partnership is known as the

KaikouraEconomicRecovery

GovernanceGroup (KERGG).

‘‘It’s about honouring our treaty

partnership and it has beendeveloping

rapidly sinceOctober, so it seemedonly

natural to evolve into aCovid­19 recovery

IMAGE: SUPPLIED

Colin Knaggs, the North Canterbury

Transport Infrastructure Recovery

(NCTIR) alliance manager, said:

‘‘With more than 70 recorded rockfall

incidents in the area since the 2016

earthquake, apermanent solution is

needed to protect road users now and

in the future.”

The canopy design will use rock

protection netting made of hightensile

galvanised steel to allow light

through. It is the first of its kind to be

installed in the southern hemisphere.

‘‘It was chosen in preference to

other ways of protecting road users,

for example, atunnel, which would

have cut off the sea views,’’ he says.

The canopy was designed by NCTIR

staff in consultation with European

designers.

The first stage of the work will

include rock scaling and milling the

existing rock by NCTIR staff to make

the area safe for workers below.

Overseas students remain

International student numbersremain

strong in the Waimakariri, despite Covid­

19 restrictions.

Rangiora High School has 30 internationalstudents

enrolled and programme

director Melissa Heyrick says there

continues to be plenty of interest, with

New Zealand seen as ‘‘a safe haven’’.

All of the students are long­termstays,

with all short­term group visits for this

year postponed.

‘‘I don’t think we will be seeingany of the

groups this year, but we are already planning

for next year,’’ she said. ‘‘Overall, our

numbers are down slightly, but it’senough

to keep us busy and we have such alovely

group.’’

The students are from the likes of

Germany, China,Japan,Thailand and

Austria, and thereare plenty of enquiries.

Cone sales help charity

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Seven­year­old best friends

Scarlet Morgan and Indie

Stevens have become two of the

youngest contributors to Kaiapoi

Community Support’s food bank.

The Year 3students from St

Patrick’s School, Kaiapoi,

collected pine cones and sold

them at their front gates.

Selling 15 bags in all, Scarlet

and Indie used the cash to buy

items to give to the food bank.

The idea came about through a

school project called The Trinity

Quest.

Students perform challenges

during the school year relating to

giving, community, academic

excellence, the arts and physical

activity, with themes associated

with caring, co­operation and

helping others.

When the girls delivered the

food to Kaiapoi Community

Support, they were given atour

of the food bank by its coordinator,

Louise Griffiths, and

helped unload the goods into the

pantry.

“The best part was choosing

yummy stuff,” Indie told Louise.

The food bank is one of the free

community services run by the

Community Wellbeing North

Canterbury Trust.

New World Kaiapoi is

currently running adrive on

behalf of the food bank until the

end of July.

“Donations of canned goods,

pantry staples and, in Indie’s

words, alittle something yummy,

are much appreciated,” Louise

says.

Spending across region

gets post-Covid bump

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury retailers are

riding awave of post­lockdown

spending.

Figures released by the

Ministry of Business

Innovation and Employment

(MBIE) shows, in the first four

weeks after lockdown, retail

spending in Kaikoura was 15.1

percent ahead of the same time

last year.

The retail spend was up 5%

in Waimakariri and 3% in

Hurunui.

Kaikoura Mayor Craig

Mackle said the boost was

largely driven by weekend

visitors. ‘‘It’s been going pretty

well actually. Even last weekend

was busy. It’s definitely up

at the moment and most people

are pretty happy.

‘‘It’s surprisingly busy for

this time of year and long may

it continue.’’

The boom in New Zealand’s

provincial towns is in stark

contrast to the cities, with

Christchurch just 1.1% ahead

of last year, while Auckland

and Wellington are among the

four districts where retail

spending is down, as many

commuters continue to work

from home, the ministry says.

Waimakariri District Council

strategy and engagement

manager Simon Markham

believes the growth in retail

spending can be attributed to

several things, including locals

working from home instead of

commuting into Christchurch,

money saved during the

lockdown, anew impetus on

shopping local, and shoppers

wanting to avoid the malls.

The Covid­19 experience

could provide solutions as

councils and businesses look to

be more sustainable in tackling

climate change, he says.

‘‘Post­Covid, we are seeing

life patterns change, with more

people working from home,

which has wider benefits for

our district with more people

being local during the day, so

they are spending money in

their town centre rather than

where they would be working.

‘‘There could be environmental

benefits as well as

economic benefits from people

working from home or having

more flexible start times and

work hours, which would also

reduce traffic congestion.’’

The council has been

working on developing a

sustainability strategy, with a

report due to be presented to

this week’s council meeting.

While Covid­19 has delayed

the development of the

strategy, it has also shown what

is possible, Mr Markham says.

The report will review the

council’s vehicle fleet, waste

treatment plant and energy

savings with aview to ‘‘doing

that smarter’’.

Waimakariri set

to bounce back

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri is well­placed to

bounce back from Covid­19, says

Enterprise North Canterbury (ENC)

business development manager

MilesDalton.

Speaking at last week’s

Waimakariri Jobs Summit, Mr

Dalton said ENC was working to get

24 ‘‘exciting projects’’ off theground,

and abetter­than­expected business

opinion survey has given the region

reason for optimism.

‘‘It’s bad, but notasbad as we

thought,’’ he said,after the recent

NorthCanterbury Business Opinion

Survey.

‘‘We’ve takenaknock, but we are

better placed than most other parts

of the country. We’ve been through

four disasters now —threeearthquakes

and now aplague —and we

come into our own whenbad things

happen.’’

ENC has received two months

worthofenquiries in just twoweeks

from prospective new businesses.

‘‘We havehad quite alot of people

coming in withsome really good

projects whichthey have obviously

put alot of thought into.

‘‘We are awareof19new

businesses starting up in North

Canterbury sinceMarchand we’ve

had 17 interviews with prospective

new businesses.’’

The business survey found93

percent of businesses had areduced

income duringlockdown, with 55%

having areducedprofitfor the last

six months,but 20% had higher

profits. ‘‘We are seeingthat jump

now thatlockdown has finished and

retail and hospitality seemtobe

pretty busy right now. As to how long

thatwill last, that’sanotherquestion.

‘‘Onthe whole, businessesare

hanging in there.Everyonetook abig

hit from the lockdown and many had

to take out loans,but mostbusinesses

are prettyoptimistic about surviving.

‘‘The weakness of Waimakariri has

suddenlybecome our strength in that

we weren’t reliant on international

tourismand we are seen as asafe

haven. We’vebeen approached by

international investors looking at

setting up some fairly substantial

operations.’’

Large projects includedLime

proposed for Silverstream), the

proposed aquasportspark in

Kaiapoi, alargeTaiwanese pet food

factory, the Waimakariri Sports

Stadium, Ravenswood New World, a

chocolate factory, various hemp

projects, manuka oil and the

proposed star trail, Mr Daltonsays.

‘‘One of the things I’ve often

thought is that New Zealand needsto

diversify away from peak cow, and

hempand cannabis are coming in as

an option.

‘‘Hemp for food andfibre and

medicinal cannabis are very strong

and thesepeople have their overseas

markets already locked in.

‘‘And we’re stillworking towards

the observatory and star trail,’’ he

said, adding thatthere is less

urgency because of the loss of

international tourists.’’

Artistic endeavour ... Laura Hewetson, left, and Mel Eaton shared avision for an arts collective in North Canterbury.

Shared vision leads to arts collective

By SHELLEY TOPP

Two North Canterbury women

have established anew arts

collective.

It is the brainchild of

Waipara’s Laura Hewetson and

Mel Eaton, of Woodend.

The idea arose when Laura

and her family moved from

Wellington to North Canterbury

almost two years ago.

She put apost up on aNorth

Canterbury mums’ Facebook

group asking if anyone was

interested in running art classes

or having alittle art group.

Mel contacted her saying she

had wanted to do asimilar thing,

so they met for acoffee and

shared their vision and passion

for creative communities.

Mel had established asimilar

initiative in Qatar called

‘‘Inspiration Station’’ and, as an

experienced art teacher, she

had the know­how to create an

arts collective, while Laura’s

background as an artist working

at aperforming­arts centre in

Wellington provided complementary

skills for the initiative.

Since that first meeting, the

women have been sharing their

vision with other local creatives,

and the collective began to

slowly form.

Laura and Mel are in the

process of transforming NEST

into an incorporated society

with charitable status and

earlier this year the women

were given agrant through

Hurunui Creative Communities

to put on an event in Amberley

to ‘‘launch and introduce’’ the

collective to North Canterbury.

The Covid­19 pandemic

PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

lockdown ‘‘put the brakes on

that, but as soon as we hit level

one it was pedal to the metal’’.

The collective’s first

exhibition and workshop is

scheduled to begin this

Saturday, running until July 26

at 16 Markham Street,

Amberley, from 10am until 3pm.

‘‘We have been blown away by

the incredible artists in the

region who have joined with us

and are showcasing their work

and running workshops,’’ the

women say. About 20 artists are

involved in the event.

Dog fee

incentive

Being aresponsible dog

owner in the Hurunui

District will mean cheaper

registration for owners.

Registrations are due

with afinal payment date

of August 1.

Those whose dogs meet

certain criteria will find it

cheaper.

Dogs who have never

roamed, are microchipped

and whose owners have

always paid the

registration fee on time

qualify for areduced fee of

$33. The standard fee is

$47 ayear.

Records show about

1000 dog owners may meet

the Responsible Dog

Owner criteria.

Compliance team leader

Andrew Brown says the

category is in the best

interests of owners, their

dogs, and the district.

“People who meet all of

the responsible dog owner

criteria are not only acting

in the best interests of

dogs, but also generally

require less time and

resource from the

council.”

He says it backs up the

Department of Internal

Affairs’ message that

safety around dogs is a

combination of good law,

good enforcement,

compliance by dog owners

and community support.

Before making the final decisiononwhat

type of fenceistobeinstalled, consider the

following:

1. Capitalcosts.

2. The labour cost to build.

3. Maintenance costs.

4. Stockholding ability. The fence should

be suitable for the stock it is to hold.Also,

considerwhat stock neighbours have when

constructing aboundary fence.

5. Required service lifeofthe fence.

Thereisno use buying materialsthatare

unlikelytogive the lifespan you require.

6. Flood or fire risk. There’s no use having

abattened fence in aflood­prone area.

7. Risks of soil slips or movements.

8. Climaterisk (e.g. coastal erosion).

9. Availability and skill of labour.

10. Availabilityofmaterials.

Afterall these considerations, you

should have adesign in mind that will

achieve the animal containment required,

suit the terrain, yourfarmingsystem,and

your budget, and it will last.

Wheretobuild

When deciding on placement, consider

the following:

1. Boundaries: Check the accurate

location of boundaries before erecting the

fence. Discuss plans with your neighbour.

2. Class of land: Where possible, fences

can be used to separate one class of land

from another, whether it be different soil

types, or aspect (sunny, shady, etc).

3. Easeofaccess: Afence line that can be

bulldozedwill cut transport and erection

costs, butmay leadtoerosion problems.

4. Avoid problem areas:Thesecan lead to

extramaterials and maintenance. Soft

soilsare troublesome for fence end

assemblies,cornersorangles. Rock can

make post installation very difficult.

Unstable streams maymeander and cut off

or underminefences.

With slopes,fencingstraightupand

down aslope will suffer less from snow

and boulders. If aslope must be crossed,

look for old terraces or achange of slope

whichmay breakthe slide of snow.

Gullies susceptible to floodswill require

acollapsible portionoffloodgates.

5. Avoid unnecessary dips or bends.

Nearly everydip will require atiedownor

foot.Likewise, bends will require bigger

postsorstrainer assemblies.

6. Makethe strainaslong as reasonably

possible. Good flat going may allow 1200m

strains but in roughground you may be

down to 100m.

7. Carefulsiting of gatewayscan make

stockmovement alot easier.

The lie and the shape of the land will

influenceyour decision. You may decide

on somehuman intervention and push in a

nice,even flatline withabulldozer on

whichtoconstruct your fence.

It’s agood idea to limitthe number of

angles in yourfence if possible. This may

include taking intoaccount the numberof

rise and dip posts as well.

Will you go around aspur or over it? Will

you run acrossthe ditchoralongside it?

Will you fence off the boggy patch or fence

rightthrough it?

Selecting material:

Post length (how far will it go in the

ground?): Experiments with radiata pine

postshave shownthere is arelationship

between postdiameter and the necessary

depththe postisburiedinthe ground to

stop it overturning. In mediumclays,apost

will usually fail by breaking.Insofter soils,

the 1:10ratiobecomes as large as 1:15, so

a90mm postset 900mminsoft soilwill fail

by overturning. In other words, to obtain a

strongerfence there is little to be gained by

usingalargerdiameter post, unlessitis

balanced by using apost which is longer

too. The only benefit of the larger diameter

is the increased facewidth pushing against

the soil. From then it can be seenthat the

extrastrength of the No.1A post(for

example) is wasted with a1.8m post.

Because of its extra width, aNo.1 halfroundpostofthe

same length in the same

ground would be stronger. Unfortunately,

longer posts are disproportionately more

expensive, so the standard1.8m­long post

is almostinvariably used.

Help for erosion-prone land

Aprogramme aimedatsupporting

landowners witherosion­prone landhas

resulted in 2000 poplars being planted,

and about 200 hectares of nativebush

retired at Mt Guardian in the Hurunui

District.

The first year of the four­yearSoil

Conservationand Regeneration (SCAR)

programme has ended withfarmers

beinggiven advice, tools and skills to help

improve their farm systems and water

quality through reducing the amount of

sediment getting intowaterways because

of erosion.

SCAR is jointly funded by Environment

Canterbury (ECan) and the Ministry for

Primary Industries’ Hill Country Erosion

Fund.Itispart of anew wave of hill

country erosionprogrammes in the South

Island.

ECan staff work with landownersinthe

region,improvingtheirknowledgeofsoil

management, and share skills and

experiences.

In 2020­21, about 3000morepoplars

will be planted to help soil conservation,

and provide shelter,shade, fodder,

It is hoped to retire afurther100

hectares of native bush, engage with 40

new landowners and plant anurserywith

6500 new poplars and willows.

The programme alsoaims to complete

42 free land­use capability maps.

Afeatureofthe maps is that staff look

at soil, slope and rock type on properties,

the existing erosionand its severity, and

what is growing.They thenmap the

information for farmers, showingthe

capabilityofthe land, and devisea

programme of works to improve how the

farm system works, and allow for the

budgeting of resources to reduce erosion

over 10 years.

Assessmentsare also made on the best

soil conservation measures,such as

space planting or retiringunder­utilised

eroding land.

Building positive relationships

between landowners,ECan staff, local

contractorsand the community has

helpedthe success of the programme.

Waipara landownerRichard

Murchisonsays his poplar planting

regime in ablock whereerosion had the

potentialtobeaproblem wasboosted by

being able to apply for SCAR funding.

‘‘The benefits are two­fold.First,it

stops erosion and sediment into

waterways, and second,itprovides stock

shelter and shade.Itwas asmooth

Peter Fitzpatrick, of Cheviot, had

already beenplanting 100 to 150 polesa

yearfor more than 20 years. He saysit

madesensetoaccess the funding and

advice. “Thebenefits to thistype of

planting are many–preventingerosion,

shade in thesummerfor stock, and the

planting looks good.’’

ECanNorthern Zonedeliverymanager

Andrew Arps saysthe team hasfound the

community receptive to the package.

‘‘Putting in space planting and retiring

erosion­prone landimproves bothfarm

systems and environmental outcomes,

suchasreduced phosphorus in streams

and increased biodiversity.”

Tackling subsidence ... Poplars, once

established, will limit erosion.

Relief over firearm exemption

Federated Farmersisrelieved thatits

advocacy for farmers to be able to apply

for endorsements to use prohibited

firearms for pestcontrol has succeeded.

ASupplementary Order Paperhas

been introduced to the Arms Legislation

Bill that allowsagriculturaland forestry

businesses to apply forendorsements to

use prohibited firearms for pestcontrol

as part of their business operations.

However, therewill be strict vetting

and qualificationcriteria for farmersto

meet.

This includes demonstrating their

suitability and proving prohibited

firearms are needed to controlthe

economic and environmental damage of

problemspecies suchasferal pigs,feral

goats, deer, wallabies, rabbits, hares and

Canada geese.

The endorsements for landowners

will put them on the same footing as

Classy Kaiapoi pummels Saracens

By LINDSAY KERR and

PETER WILLIAMS

RUGBY

Kaiapoi’s players have inked

themselves in as virtually

certain semi­finalists, showing

the sort of talent that suggests

they could go all the way in the

2020 Luisetti Seeds North

Canterbury Rugby competition.

They thrashed alacklustre

Saracens team 45­7 at the

weekend.

Saracens never got into the

match, being comprehensively

outplayed in every facet.

Up front, Kaiapoi dominated

in the scrums and lineouts, as

well as at the breakdown.

In the backline, Kaiapoi

showed confidence that posed a

constant threat to its

opposition.

Saracens tried hard. Brett

Hancox, playing on the flank,

and Ollie Ashby at half­back

were two of Saracens’ better

players.

Kaiapoi put in atotal team

effort. It is almost unfair to

single out any individuals, but

Connor Smith at lock had a

gargantuan game and Rob

Samson at fullback showed his

class every time he got near the

ball.

Scorers: Kaiapoi 45 (Samson

(3), Ben Wicksteed, Luka

Tootoo, and Iowane

Koroitukana (2) tries; Taine

Jacobs­Lawson, Lance Taylor

(4) conversions.) Saracens 7

(Hadrian Jackson try, Ricky

Allin conversion).

Hard­fought win

Glenmark­Cheviot’s

unbeaten run continued, but it

did not come easily.

Last week, it battled to a

hard­fought win over Hurunui.

This time it was Ashley, which

led its more fancied rivals at

the break before losing 20­26.

Playing on its home ground

before apacked gallery, Ashley

threw everything at the visitors,

scoring first with apenalty goal

before half back Brett Cameron

scored atry, following amove

that started with an intercept.

Glenmark responded and,

after asolid build­up, Angus

Harrison scored in the corner.

Fifteen minutes the side took

the lead when Hayden

O’Donnell crashed over in a

wall of jerseys to score.

With half­time looming,

Korbyn Gray kicked Ashley

ahead 13­12 with his second

penalty.

The scene was set for the

final outcome in the opening

moments of the second half,

when Glenmark’s livewire

loosie Jacob Vincent scored a

try. This was converted by

super boot Brook Retallick.

Ashley continued to irritate

Touchdown ... Rob Samson scores for Kaiapoi against Saracens.

its opposition and attacked

with vigour. However, on two

occasions when in promising

attacking situations the side

was let down by lineout

inaccuracies.

Fifteen minutes from time,

Retallick seized on asloppy

Ashley pass and sprinted 40m to

take his team to a26­13 lead.

Ashley stayed in the contest

and after aspirited attack the

Ashley forwards rumbled over

the line, with Louis James the

try scorer.

Glenmark­Cheviot’s overall

accuracy was again the key to

its success. Lock Angus Foster

and prop Hayden O’Donnell

were standout performers in

the pack, while halfback Jordy

Gray organised the backs with

efficiency and enthusiasm.

While beaten, Ashley again

showed that the team of 2020 is

one that will improve with each

outing and should emerge as

serious semi­final contenders.

Scoreboard: Glenmark­

Cheviot; 26 (Angus Harrison,

Hayden O’Donnell, Jacob

Vincent tries; Brook Retallick a

try and three conversions.)

Ashley 20 (Brett Cameron,

Louis James tries; Korbyn Gray

2conversions, 2penalties.)

Comeback effort

Hurunui bounced back from

its loss to Glenmark to come

from well behind to head off a

visiting Ohoka side 28­25.

While the victory was sweet

for Hurunui, it was agony for

Ohoka, which led for most of the

game, only to lose by 3points.

Hurunui posted the first

points with apenalty before

Ohoka equalised. Both sides

traded tries before Tom Taylor

put Ohoka ahead 15­8 with a

converted try on half­time.
