cannabis

poll points

to yes vote

COULD VOTERS be leaning

towards yes in the cannabis

referendum?

A poll conducted on The Star’s

Facebook page would suggest so.

The poll found 67 per cent

of 2934 respondents as of

4pm yesterday, supported the

legislation of cannabis with 33

per cent against. This equates to

1956 respondents being in favour

of legalisation and 978 being

against.

Comments made on the

Facebook poll exhibited a range

of differing perspectives and

opinions on the matter.

Jo Margaret said she was voting

yes, even though she doesn’t use

cannabis or like it.

“I want those who do use it

to be safe, to not be a criminal

for cannabis use. To not be

associating with gangs and

not put themselves at risk,” she

said.

Whereas Judy Ware warned

against legalisation.

“How can any observer vote

yeas [sic]. Drugged drivers on our

roads us a a [sic] scary concept.

We have enough accidents and

deaths now.”

There were people like Paul

McNeil who had not yet come to a

final decision.

and would not hand over the

equipment, which has still not

Combined with the expiry of

the Colombo St store’s lease in

12-months, a decision was made

to seek a more suburban location,

he said.

“We see ourselves as a valued,

trusted partner in the heart of our

communities and that’s where

we want to be. Being in Sydenham,

one of Christchurch’s most

diverse and vibrant neighbourhoods,

gives us the opportunity to

The Colombo is Sydenham’s

leading retail establishment and,

like us, is locally owned and

community-oriented. We are

very pleased to be a cornerstone

retailer alongside a wonderful

diverse range of shops, hospitality

and entertainment.”

Allison said the closure of its

flagship store will signal the end

of an era for Smiths City.

“While this has been a hard

decision, we are looking forward

to establishing ourselves in

one of Christchurch’s iconic

communities. Sydenham locals

will soon be seeing our bright

yellow exterior as we prepare the

store for opening in a couple of

turn out for eight auctions.

“Six of which sold under the

agent Karen Ellis, who sold 97A

Highstead Rd for $558,000 said

there were 80 groups through

during the campaign and that

translated into nine registered

buyers on the day – five of whom

actively competed.

“All nine bidders wanted to

bid but the speed hindered their

opportunity to do so. There was

great competition throughout

the auction and the final price

far exceeded the client’s expectations,”

she said.

Said Ray White New Zealand

auctioneer Ben East: “We say it

Name change

for cemetery

to recognise

quake victims

• By Louis Day

A CEMETERY has been renamed

to recognise its wider significance

as the home of unidentified

victims of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

agreed to rename Avonhead Park

Cemetery to Avonhead Memorial

Cemetery.

The cemetery was approved as

the interment site for the remains

of unidentified victims from the

quake.

The Friends of Avonhead

Cemetery have previously called

on the name of the cemetery to be

changed to Avonhead Memorial

Cemetery in recognition of its

wider significance as the home of

the unidentified quake victims.

A total of 37 earthquake victims

and families of victims have used

the site as a place of burial, which

represents a small number of the

5000 plots the cemetery is home to.

City council staff recommended

against changing the name of the

cemetery, stating the potential

distress or offence that could

result from a change of name

could potentially outweigh the

positive feelings of those in favour

of a name change.

Christ’s College v Boys’ High

Sky Sport commentator

Ken Laban described

Christ’s College’s 28-27

home win over historic

rivals Christchurch Boys’

High on Saturday as

‘one of the great first

XV games of all time’.

on one of Canterbury

sports great rivalries

SATURDAY WAS the 137th

meeting between Christchurch

Boys’ High School and Christ’s

College, a rivalry that dates back

to the first

game in 1892.

Christ’s

College were

victorious

in that first

encounter,

winning 34-0,

which would

be their biggest

winning

margin in the history of the

fixture. Since then CBHS have

largely had the upper hand

– winning 84 matches, with

Christ’s College notching up a

further 43 victories, while there

have been nine draws.

equivalent in 2013.

For both Lienert-Brown

and McKenzie the history

and prestige of the match

was something they became

immersed in from the moment

they set foot onto their respective

schools’ grounds.

“As a year nine going into

Christchurch Boys’ High School

the Christchurch Boys vs Christ’s

College fixture is one of the first

things you hear about,” Lienert-

Brown reflects.

“It’s a tradition that’s been

around for a long time and has

a lot of meaning. I remember

vividly the first match I went to,

you learn all sort of outrageous

chants and a lot of going back and

forth between the schools, but it’s

one heck of a time and such an

enjoyable time to go down there

with your school mates and get

behind the 1st XV.”

McKenzie has similar

memories.

“It was a great fixture to be a

part of and for

both schools it’s

always one they

look forward

to. It’s been a

longstanding

traditional game

and the rivalry

particularly

down in

Christchurch

with the schools is amazing.

Damian

Mckenzie

“When I first moved up from

Southland and went to the game

I couldn’t believe it, especially

some of the chants I heard, I

thought ‘this is pretty over the

top’. However, once you get out

there it’s pretty awesome to be a

part of. Unfortunately we never

won in the years I was involved,

but since then I think the boys

have won a few of the games and

this weekend hopefully we can

make it another one.”

Lienert-Brown attended

Christchurch Boys during

their unbeaten run of 16

games against Christ’s College,

stretching from 2001-2016. He

remembers the distinct feeling of

running out for his first college

match.

- a rivalry steeped in history

“It’s definitely not normal. I

think they’ve got about 3000

people around the field, so for

a 17-year-old that’s pretty cool.

The whole day’s a big one too.

There’s normally a meeting in the

morning, you have a lunch and

then there’s a big build-up to the

game. You’re warming up and

all the schools pile on in, Christ’s

on one side, Boys’ High are on

the other and you can feel the

meaning behind it.”

What exactly makes this

rivalry so significant?

The two schools are the

first all-male schools to be

founded in Canterbury and

were conveniently situated just

100 metres away from each

other when they were first

formed. Now, it’s almost 4km

that separates the blue and black

of Straven Rd CBHS from the

black and white of Rolleston Ave

and Christ’s College.

CBHS director of sport Glenn

Davis is an old boy of the school

and has been involved with many

college matches both on and off

the field.

“I think there’s a mutual

respect between college and Boys’

High. Yes there’s that private

versus state school rivalry - a bit

like Auckland Grammar School

and King’s College in Auckland.

There is respect across all sports,

the school we have associated

with the most in Christchurch.

We have great rivalries with St

Andrew’s College and St Bede’s

College and the other single sex

boys’ schools, but with college

there’s always been that rivalry

that’s developed over time. A

lot of teachers bounce between

schools as well, so everyone’s

well known to each other,” Davis

explains.

One of those who have

bounced between schools is

Christ’s master in charge of

rugby Stephen Dods, who was

director of rugby at CBHS for 14

years before joining Christ’s in

2015.

The rivalry between the two

schools for this match is because

I think it’s the same for both

of them. This game is a proud

tradition.”

New All Blacks assistant

coach Brad Mooar was part of a

winning CBHS effort in his final

year of school in 1992 and even

28 years on he remembers that

game distinctly.

“It was a great day, my last

year of school playing first XV

with mates who are still my great

mates and I remember it being

an overcast day when we played

college at Straven Rd.

“Leading into the day we had

an assembly and capping. Our

captain lived over the road from

the field at Boys’ High.

I remember being across

“You really feel like you’re

bleeding blue and black and

everything the team’s doing on

the field you feel as though you’re

a part of it. That is probably the

special part of it – everyone feels

they’re on the field with the boys.

Whether they’ve got aspirations

to be on the field or not, whether

they’re musically inclined,

academic, or rugby players,

everyone gets in behind the team

and I think that just pulls the

whole school spirit together.”

these matches, it’s hard to look

their mouths.

As bodies crash and bash

into each other on the field and

verbal jousts are slung across

the embankments it presents

the question - like many classic

sporting rivalries, is there hatred

between these two schools?

“Hatred’s a strong word,” says

Gibson.

“It’s a respect thing. Christ’s

College have typically in the past

come in as underdogs,

so they’ve always wanted to take

the scalp of Boys’ High. I think

in the past couple of years that’s

certainly changed and the teams

are a lot more even and both

consistently up in the top four

and it does come down to who’s

going to deal with the pressure

most and because of how evenly

matched they’ve been it’s put

more of a rivalry onto it.”

Lienert-Brown believes

the rivalry between the two

schools is similar to that of an

international encounter he’s been

involved in on many an occasion.

“In a way it’s like the All

Blacks vs South Africa where

you respect both teams, but on

the field it’s pretty brutal. There’s

a lot of pride that you associate

with what school you go to, so

there is respect off the field, but

on the field there’s no respect at

all.” - NZ Herald

Post-match ‘scuffle’

TWO Christchurch Boys’ High

School students were stood down

and temporarily suspended from

playing rugby after their role in

the post-match fracas after the

match on Saturday.

The students, who were spectators,

were involved in “a bit of

push and shove” between opposing

supporters.

After Christ’s gripping win,

students from both schools met

on the field after the final whistle,

where some collar grabbing

and shoving ensued, along with

an exchange of words.

CBHS principal Nic Hill told

Stuff the passion associated with

the fixture was welcomed but

it spilled over and resulted in a

serious incident requiring consequences.

Christ’s College executive

principal Garth Wynne described

the incident as “scuffles”

and had not received any formal

complaints. No Christ’s College

students have therefore faced

disciplinary action.

A history of sideline incidents

between the schools dating back

to the mid-90s had seen the

presence of police and security

guards introduced.

A string of arrests in 2009 then

saw CBHS endorse a Christ’s

College initiative to eliminate all

alcohol from the event.

Ex-Bandidos boss reveals why

THE FORMER president of

the New Zealand chapter of the

Bandidos gang has spoken up

about his decision to leave his

life of crime last year in a series

of videos where he also urges

teenagers to stay away from gangs.

Hamish Hiroki, who lives in

Christchurch, left the gang last

year and has taken to YouTube to

explain the reasons behind the

departure.

He hopes his videos will inspire

teenagers to steer clear of gangs.

“I know there’s a lot of young

followers that are joining clubs

now and I think they feel the

need to join clubs because everyone

else is doing it,” he said in a

video from May.

He said he joined the gang originally

because he was seeking “a

sense of brotherhood and a sense

of belonging to something”.

He said he left after falling into

a negative head space and realising

he did not want his son to

following in his footsteps.

Hiroki initially joined the Bandidos

gang when he’d just moved

to Christchurch, where he didn’t

know many people.

“I wanted to join it since I was

a young fella, because they were

always guys I had looked up to,

but plain and simple, I didn’t

really know what I was getting

myself into really. I thought I

did, he said.

He added that he “lost himself

along the way”, just following

what others were doing.

He climbed up the ranks and

eventually became the president

of the NZ chapter of the gang.

He said his first moment of

clarity was when he visited his

grandmother and she “noticed a

change”.

“She noticed that I certainly

got a lot harder on the exterior

and I couldn’t see that because

you can’t see the changes when

you’re with yourself every day,”

he said in one of the videos.

The man also says he attempted

suicide while he was part of

the gang but his mental health

has improved since he left.

He now runs a weekly support

He tells teenagers in his videos

to avoid gangs as they will not

find the brotherhood he too had

sought in them.

“I’ve had guys turn on me that

were my best mates ... it’s not a

brotherhood,” he said.

“It’s a false sense of belonging

to something, then at the drop of

a hat everyone can turn on you.”

He also warns that it’s hard to

leave once you’re already in. “If

you’re man enough to join that

club you be man enough to leave

that club,” he said.

“You came in the front door

you go out the front door.”

One Small Step

Can Change....

Everything

These are all questions being asked by Brett Muir, who is spearheading the

dynamic “Point of Change Forum” in Christchurch. It’s a one day re-set, it’s

hope, it’s connection, it’s new perspective. And it’s affordable, for both the

employed , those between jobs - and the Covid impacted.

Brett is bringing ten presenters from all over the country to share their own

true life stories, their individual challenges, and the tools they used to help

them move towards a resilient mind set and a new sense of direction.

Kylie Tolman, of Canterbury, survived Stage 3 breast cancer and founded

charity C.A.R.E.S., which helps survivors move on from cancer. Alistair Boyd,

of Auckland, shares his experience of both the highs and lows of business,

and offers a perceptive understanding of transferable skills.

David Humphries, of Canterbury, will speak about the trauma of facing and

overcoming major medical challenges, including organ transplant. Award

winning singer/songwriter Julia Grace, of Auckland, talks about her journey

through anxiety and burn-out to mental well-being. And Mykle Booth, of

Auckland, will be interviewed about his rebound after the traumatic loss of

his business, following New Zealand’s earthquakes.

“I want to empower people,” Brett says. He himself,

presently with Groutpro, is creating his own new future

with his commitment to studying Life Coaching

with Worklife Solutions.

“It’s also a great opportunity for people or businesses

to sponsor someone they know to attend. It’s one

day that could make a world of difference.

“I feel like this is the right thing at the right

time, and my intention is that participants

will leave the forum re-energised , with a new

clarity of direction.”

At about 12.30am on Friday,

while his children Matthew,

Luke and Lilly slept, a motorist

into Jayet’s fence, as well as his

neighbours’ fence and house.

Jayet said he slept through the

to slow it down.

“All I can say is I’m thankful

because it would have killed us if

the fence wasn’t there,” he said.

Jayet’s flatmate Oksana Cottrell

said she heard the car hitting

the fence and “thought it was an

earthquake to begin with.”

She went outside, checked if the

driver was okay and gave him some

water and a blanket.

“He kept saying sorry,” she said.

The driver was transported

to Christchurch Hospital with

moderate injuries.

Police, a fire engine and

Jayet said it took two tow

property next door.

Christchurch City Chorus

has the sound of friendship

LOCAL women’s a capella

group, the Christchurch

City Chorus, boasts a

membership of vibrant

women who have a passion

for singing. Members

take immense pride in

creating beautiful four

part harmony, a capella

and barbershop music and

love the sense of belonging

which being part of the

chorus brings to them.

As Australasia’s

premiere international

award-winning women’s

a capella chorus, they are

dedicated to enriching the

lives of members and the

wider community through

friendship, performance,

education and barbershop

musical excellence.

Talking to members, it is

evident the chorus’ success

is due to so much more

than a love for singing. In

fact, members consider

each other to be family.

Long term member

Amelia Davis of Huntsbury,

has called the chorus

her family for the last 12

years “I love the camaraderie

- as a chorus we are

a diverse group all going

in the same direction.

We support each other

in tough times and we

celebrate the good times

together”

Jill Copplestone, who

has been singing with the

chorus for 10 years, loves the

challenge of learning new

music and the excitement

when it all comes together

as a great performance. “I

love to sing, even if it only

used to be with my pepper

grinder microphone on New

Year’s Eve. I went along to a

rehearsal, watched the chorus

and knew I just wanted

to be a part of it.”

Award winning master

director and in-house

musical coach, Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor says the

chorus are keen to extend

their family further and

are actively looking to

embrace new members.

If you love to sing, have

an ear for harmony, want

to meet new friends and

are keen to learn from

two top music coaches

Virginia Humphrey Taylor

and Richard Marrett,

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

When a spark sets off a mob

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

HISTORY SHOWS it doesn’t

take much to spark a mob.

It only needs a few agitators

and strong personalities to get

others to follow, who in normal

circumstances wouldn’t have the

strength, courage or conviction

to make a stand or get involved.

Mob and pack behaviour is

part of our DNA, which ranges

from positive outcomes in bringing

down oppressive governments

and regimes to the cowardly,

where people are attacked

because they are a different race,

creed or religion, or for simply

no reason at all.

The dust-up between Christ’s

College and Christchurch Boys’

High School supporters after

their annual rugby match on

Saturday is a classic case of a few

stirring up and the rest following.

It wasn’t much of a scrap,

but again the historic rivalries

at this particular match came

to the fore, prompted by a few,

joined by many. Nothing much

happened apart from pushing

and shoving and maybe the odd

punch thrown.

But a spark can set off a powder

keg.

Years ago at Aranui High

School I played basketball. I was

selected for my speed, not my

height.

The school had always produced

top basketball teams over

the years and the era I was there

was no different.

A double-header home Friday

match against Xavier College

involving our open grade team

(fifth, sixth and seventh forms)

and us, the fourth-form side,

was memorable, but not for the

basketball.

Our match was fiery; the open

grade clash even more so, which

fed an increasingly restless and

hostile crowd.

When the main game ended

and the Xavier teams and their

supporters headed back to their

RIVALS: Differences over who we are and what sports teams we support can set off an

angry mob like these rival German football fans.

PHOTO GETTY IMAGES ​

van, they were jostled, kicked

and punched by Aranui supporters.

The Xavier van was

damaged.

A number of us players tried to

intervene and protect the Xavier

players and supporters but the

mob, while not large, was by now

well out of control. Normally

mild-mannered supporters had

the smell for blood.

The fallout between the

schools was considerable. Weeks

later our team was dispatched to

play Xavier at Xavier. Not sure

why, as the game was scheduled

for Cowles Stadium and it was

our open grade team and their

supporters, many of them who

had left school, where all of the

after match trouble had stemmed

from.

But clearly we were the sacrificial

lamb. It was to be payback.

The Xavier gym was full with

their students and they gave it

to us.

We were glad to get out of

there.

Death penalty

I agree 100 per cent with Dr

Alayan regarding the death

penalty.

It’s fine to say its “barbaric” or

“go back to where you come from”

by those who are living in safe –

possibly, regularly police-patrolled

ares – and have never been

directly affected by this horrific

tragedy, but ask the families of

those who may have lost their only

child, their only bread-winner for

no fault of their own and whom

they’ll never see again.

However, if New Zealand feels

the death penalty is inappropriate

then the least our Government

can do is to immediately deport

this killer, where he should be

made to serve a life sentence of

rigorous imprisonment.

It’s obvious such criminals do

not appreciate the kindness of the

Kiwi culture nor the benevolence

of Kiwi law. There should be no

place for such criminals – as they

can never change their basic way

of thinking in our peace-loving

country – Inderjit Chadda

No I do not believe under any

circumstances we should bring

back the death penalty. But such

horrible crimes should be life

inside. – Brenda Sawyers

Contractors compo

I agree wholeheartedly with

Anthony Brooks (The Star July

16) assertion that the contractors

making claims for losses incurred

due to the Covid-19 don’t

feel part of the five million.

I was appalled reading in last

week’s Star that Isaacs were making

a multi-million dollar claim

against the council.

This smacks of the sense of

entitlement born of the “culture

of me” that has blighted New

Zealand since the Roger Douglas

University boiler

Last week The Star reported

that Canterbury University is

changing its coal boiler to a biomass

boiler to save 9000 tonnes

of CO2 emissions per year. The

biomass in this case is most likely

trees, so my question is, does the

9000 tonnes of savings include

the CO2 emissions involved in

the felling, cutting, and transporting

of trees?

I am concerned about the

environment and therefore

concerned that sometimes, not

just in this case, that calculations

of CO2 savings is simply of the

end result, in this case burning

of trees for energy. I feel the

whole process needs to be taken

into account to know the overall

impact on the environment and

the CO2 emissions being created.

– Dianne Downward

Canterbury University’s energy &

carbon manager|Kaiwhakahaere

Pūngao Tony Sellin responds:

Our new biomass boiler will

run on wastewood, a by-product

of forestry from renewable plantations.

Biomass from renewable

plantations is considered to be

carbon neutral and will enable

UC to reduce coal emissions by

80 per cent while we continue to

work to make the 76ha campus

completely coal-free and move

to renewable ground source

heat pump energy. This is more

sustainable but requires us to first

upgrade our older legacy building

stock.

carbon emissions with Toitū carbonreduce

since 2010 and its GHG inventory

is audited and certified annually.

OPINION

TODAY THE city council will

be meeting to discuss and adopt

the 2020-21 Annual Plan, after

receiving over 1000 written

submissions and hearing from

more than 116 submitters in

person.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the

Annual Plan process this year,

having chaired all of the meetings,

briefings and then the hearings in

my role as chair of the finance and

performance committee.

The development of the plan

has, however, been a challenging

process for the city council, as

we originally released the draft

Annual Plan for consultation in

February. Then the impact of the

Covid-19 pandemic caused some

major changes to our finances and

we needed to revise the draft Annual

Plan to reflect this, resulting

in the release of an updated draft

Annual Plan and a new consultation

document on June 12.

This new time line only allowed

a short time for consultation

with the community, but I

have been really impressed by

the quantity and quality of the

feedback we received in written

submissions and from people

speaking to us at the hearings.

After taking this valuable

feedback into account, we made

further changes to the draft Annual

Plan.

The majority of submitters opposed

the city council reintroducing

the weedkiller, Glyphosate, so

we now propose not to increase

its use and to retain the current

policy.

The excess water use charging

proposal has been included in the

plan, with 65 per cent of submitters

in favour of this. We also got

a very clear message that residents

are not happy with the condition

of some of our roads, so we have

made a further $4.5 million available

in the budget specifically for

road sealing work over the next

year.

The revised draft Annual Plan

includes provision for an average

nation of East Timor.

July 25, 1981 – Anti-Springbok

the abandonment of the

Springboks-Waikato match.

This announcement was greeted

with chants of “we want rugby.’’

Spectators attacked protesters as

the police ushered them from

July 26, 1865 – Parliament

moves from Auckland to more

centrally-located Wellington

on the recommendation of a

specially appointed Australian

commission. The former

chamber became the new home

for Parliament.

July 27, 1963 – Pioneer aviator

George Bolt dies. Bolt was an

outstanding figure in the development

of commercial aviation.

Among his many achievements

were taking New Zealand’s first

aerial photographs in 1912 and

delivering its first official airmail

in 1919. He served with the

RNZAF during World War 2.

July 28, 1893 – The women’s

suffrage petition was presented

to Parliament. The monster

petition contained the signatures

of more than 25,000 women. A

dozen other, smaller petitions

were also submitted around the

same time. Together they contained

the signatures of nearly

32,000 women − almost a quarter

of the adult European female

population of New Zealand.

July 29, 1981 – Up to 2000 anti-Springbok

tour protesters were

confronted by police who used

batons to stop them marching

up Molesworth St, Wellington,

to the home of South Africa’s

consul to New Zealand. Former

Prime Minister Norman Kirk’s

prediction eight years earlier that

a Springbok tour would result in

the “greatest eruption of violence

this country has ever known,’’

now seemed prophetic.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Iris Goodmanson.

Congratulations!

Q

My ornamental bay trees have a

lot of dead leaves in the middle.

How do I bring them back to

health? What are they trying to

tell me?

A

Brown leaves on the inside of bay trees are a

regular occurrence, particularly after long,

dry summers. It is caused by the plant

becoming excessively dry over January

and February. Bay trees grow especially

well in a rich soil that is kept well-watered. They

also love nitrogen fertiliser, especially when applied

early in the growing season.

Where bay trees have been well fertilised, the leaves

will be a deep green colour as opposed to the light

green colour when they are lacking in nutrients. You

can either remove the brown leaves by hand, or they will

eventually fall off.

Start the spring growing season by fertilising your bay trees

in late October with Daltons Premium Tree and Shrub

Fertiliser and apply mulch to help maintain moisture levels.

Regularly trim the plant to encourage new leafy, healthy

growth.

You may find it helpful to read our

free How to Grow Guides which

include tips from the experts:

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

WIN a Daltons Fruit Tree Care & Planting Pack

It can take two to three years before your fruit tree (depending on variety) is well established so

don’t expect it to be laden with fruit immediately, but the beauty of fruit trees is that they bear

fruit for many years!

Each pack is valued at $80 and contains 2 x Garden Time Compost, Daltons

WHEN replacement prop Jack

Jones took his place on the

Christ’s College bench ahead of

their match against bitter rivals

Christchurch Boys’ High School

on Saturday, he could’ve never

imagined 65min later he’d have

his name etched in history.

Jones scored one of the most

spectacular individual tries seen

in this prestigious contest, to

give his school just their second

win over CBHS in 20 years, as

they hung on to be 28-27 victors.

Said Christ’s coach Reuben

Thorne: “It was right in front of

us, so we were pretty pumped.

Jack’s a dynamic guy, he’s a

front-rower, but at school he

competes in the 100m sprint,

so is that sort of athlete. It was a

really special moment and fantastic

he had the ability to come

on and turn the game like that.”

It was a game that had everything,

with passion and desire

oozing out of both schools on

and off the field. Both sides

traded tries early, before CBHS

right winger Will Brownie

scored two tries in quick succession

including an astounding

contorting finish for his first

five-pointer to give the visitors a

15-8 advantage. Christ’s added

a penalty through first-five Nick

Shearer, before midfielder Angus

Hammett barged over for a

converted try to give Christ’s an

JUBILANT: Jack Jones dives over to score the winning try that secured Christ’s College’s second win over Christchurch

Boys’ High School in 20 years at Christs’ College on Saturday. He celebrates after scoring.

18-15 advantage at the break.

Consistent pressure from

CBHS in the second half saw

them edge in front 22-18. They

looked to have landed a killer

blow in the 48th-minute, when

co-captain and centre Callum

Saunders latched onto a Christ’s

cut-out ball and raced 55m to

score in front of the biggest contingent

of his supporters.

They stormed the in-goal and

enveloped Simpson in a collective

embrace which typified just

what this rivalry means.

Shearer closed the gap to

27-21 with a well-taken drop

goal under advantage and it was

game on for the final 15min.

Christ’s continued to build

pressure on the CBHS goal line.

Guy Jensen was shown a yellow

card for one too many team

penalties, leaving CBHS to play

out the remainder of the game

with 14 players.

Then came the pivotal moment

of the game.

CBHS failed to find touch and

relieve pressure from a penalty,

which enabled Christ’s to venture

into their half. After seven

phases the ball fell into the

hands of Jones in the 17 jersey.

Defying his propping stature,

he dummied to his outside

backs, stepped off his left foot

and beat three defenders,

galloping 25m and diving under

the post to score the matchwinning

try with 4min to play.

YOUNG Christchurch United

prodigy Oscar Obel-Hall is flying

to Denmark this week to join

Superliga club Esbjerg fB and

fulfil his dream of playing for a

European club.

Obel-Hall only turned 16 in

May and is considered as one

of the biggest

football talents

to come out of

Canterbury in

recent years.

young age, but Obel-Hall’s dual

Danish citizenship enables him to

compete as a local player.

“I feel super-lucky. That Danish

passport is definitely my golden

ticket,” says Obel-Hall whose Danish

mother Camilla will travel with

him to help him get set up.

“Once I am all sorted with my

apartment and with a new school,

my mum will head back to New

Zealand and I will be looking after

myself. It will be a great experience,”

says the teenager who has

played in the Christchurch United

first team under former All Whites

star Danny Halligan for the past

two seasons, regularly competing

in the Mainland Premier League.

Obel-Hall last year trialled at

professional clubs in Germany,

the Netherlands and Denmark

and went back this year to

Winston Reid’s former club, FC

Midtjylland, who were interested

in signing him.

“Unfortunately, they had no

spots left on their roster but

recommended me to Esbjerg fB,”

Obel-Hall said.

Obel-Hall will initially join the

club’s under-17 squad and can’t

wait to test himself against his

peers on a day-to-day basis.

Tips for first home buyers

Struggling to get on the property

ladder and feeling fed up? You’re not

alone. Real Estate Authority (REA)

research has found that more than half

of all first home buyers – even the ones

who successfully buy a property – find

the process stressful and overwhelming.

“We know it’s hard for people when

they’re trying to buy their first home –

it’s a complex legal process and a huge

financial deal,” says REA chief executive

Kevin Lampen-Smith. “We want to

empower them to feel more confident

and in control when they’re making such

a big decision.”

1. SORT OUT YOUR FINANCES

You’ll already know that saving is a

big part of getting ready to buy, but do

you know what else you need to do?

Getting financial advice from a

qualified advisor could be a useful step

in your planning. Owning a property

means you’re responsible for all the

maintenance and repairs – and for

paying rates and insurance. Owning an

apartment may also mean you need to

pay body corporate fees. These costs

can be a bit of a shock to the system if

you’ve rented for a long time.

“It’s also a good idea to get conditional

pre-approved finance arranged so you

can move quickly when you spot a

property you really like,” Lampen-

Smith says. “Having conditional preapproval

lets you know the price range

you can buy in and it shows agents and

sellers that you’re a serious buyer. It’s

also crucial if you’re planning to bid on

a property at auction.”

Don’t forget to explore ways that

you might be able to get help from

the Government. There are various

forms of assistance available if you’re

a KiwiSaver member, buying in certain

areas, want to buy a former Housing

New Zealand property or are Māori and

want to live on your ancestral land.

2. NEEDS VS WANTS

Many first home buyers discover a big

gap between what they’d like to buy and

what they can afford when they first start

looking.

“Sit down and write a tight list of what

your absolute must-haves are, then work

out what you’re willing to compromise

on,” Lampen-Smith says.

If you’re thinking about pets and

children arriving in the short-to-medium

term, think about how these will change

your needs. Will you need to be near to

childcare or schools? Will you need a

fenced property?

“If you’re the sort of person who likes a

good list, we’ve got a useful ‘researching

the property’ checklist on settled.govt.nz

that will help you keep track of all the

questions to ask about a property. This

is especially useful if you’re looking at

more than one property at a time.”

3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Don’t let your desperation to find

somewhere blind you to a property’s

faults.

“Do as much research as you can

about a property,” Lampen-Smith says.

“That means getting a lawyer on board

to make sure all the paperwork is in order

and to help you understand if there are

any issues. We also recommend getting

a qualified building inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance to

prepare a comprehensive report on the

property.”

If you’re worried about paying for this

kind of report before you make an offer

(due to a lack of time or funds), you can

make them a condition of your offer.

Remember that paying for good advice

is an investment that will buy you more

peace of mind than a quick once-over by

a mate.

4. RECOGNISE YOUR LIMITS

Buying a ‘doer-upper’ is a Kiwi

tradition, especially for first-home

buyers, but we’re not all blessed with

the right skills. Factor this in before you

make an offer on a ‘renovator’s dream’.

“Be honest with yourselves about how

much DIY you can really do, especially

if you’ve got pets and kids,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“Getting professionals in to help will

cost more, but it will also make the

process faster. It may also be better in

the long term when it comes to selling

the property if any work has been done

properly with the right consents.”

Megan Pearce

Manager Hearings and Council Support

Powered up in

fully electric Ioniq

IF THERE was one good

thing to come out of the

alert level three coronavirus

lockdown, it would be that

it heightened my awareness

of hybrid technology.

In the interest of public

safety, the local Hyundai

dealership closed its doors

early, a couple of days

before lockdown. It was

on one of those days that I

was scheduled to return an

Ioniq plug-in hybrid, that

being the case, I was left

with it in my care for that

month.

During that time I used

it to take my wife to work

on a daily basis, she was

deemed an essential worker.

I grew to appreciate that

hybrids have their place

and the Ioniq PHEV made

a marked impression for its

economy and ease of use, it

really is much the normal

car.

As its nameplate would

suggest, the Ioniq in this

form has a petrol engine

and electric motor which

work together in traditional

hybrid fashion; however, it

also has the benefit of being

able to charge the battery

through a plug-in household

electric supply, or

from a charge station such

as those at malls. Really it’s

the best of all worlds for

those who feel they need to

do their bit for the environment.

Or else, you could do

away with the petrol engine

in total. The Hyundai Ioniq

is also on the market as

an electric vehicle only, its

sole source of propulsion is

through an electric motor

powered by a 38kWh

lithium-ion polymer battery

bank, charged through

plug-in.

This evaluation focuses

on the $66,000 Ioniq EV

($72,000 Elite). It is there

for those who want to make

the total commitment to get

away from burning fossil

fuel. Those who do want

totally electric will need to

be prepared to pay for it,

it’s $12,000 more expensive

than the PHEV, although it

would be expected that cost

would be recovered over a

period of time, buying electricity

is said to be much

cheaper than buying petrol.

It would cost between

$5 and $10 cost to recharge

the Ioniq from low

charge to full charge, that’s

just a rough guide, there

are many factors which

determine cost – supplier,

night and day rates, length

of charge, the list goes on.

You must also factor in that

not all homes have wiring

conducive to supplying the

current needed, a designated

charge point correctly

wired is preferred. Of

course, there are the charge

HYUNDAI IONIQ EV: Plug-in, charge up and drive off.

stations which are being

rolled out in ever-increasing

numbers nationwide.

In terms of length of time

to charge, the Ioniq needs

over six hours to charge

from empty, that’s using a

designated charge point.

If you are at a fast charge

station, 80 per cent capacity

can be reached in about

an hour. From a household

supply using a three-pin

plug cable, a full top-up

will take up to 17 hours.

That being the case, regular

top-ups would be more

productive.

• Price – Hyundai Ioniq

EV, $65,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4470mm;

width, 1820mm;

height, 1460mm

• Configuration –

Electric motor, frontwheel-drive,

100kW,

295Nm, automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.5sec

The Ioniq’s power plant

is pretty much the same

design as that which powers

its stablemate Kona – a

small SUV. However, the

Ioniq is a small-to-medium

liftback that stands out for

high level of specification

and purposeful design. It is

a definite five-seater and it

gets plenty of features.

Driving the Ioniq needs

no special effort, there are

just four central push buttons

which are self-explanatory,

drive, reverse, neutral

and park. From that point

on you just drive as you

would in a petrol-powered

car. The only notable difference

is there is lot of motor

braking associated with

deceleration. I particularly

like that, it means you are

less reliant on the brakes,

and it feels reassuring.

Hyundai claims 100kW

and 295Nm power outputs

and that’s feisty enough, I

particularly like the feel of

electric energy, there is a

strong feeling of acceleration

as the torque from the

electric motor winds up.

Speed isn’t overly vivid, but

there is a solid pull of motor

power when you ask for

it, and that steady supply is

seamless and constant, providing

more of a sensation

of speed than you would

otherwise imagine.

The Ioniq is rated with a

311km distance between

charges. The evaluation car

was sitting on 160km range

when I picked it up, and it

quickly dropped to 100km

with just a few inner-city

commutes in very cold

weather, that scenario not

conducive to batteries

retaining charge.

Nevertheless, once on the

highway at legal open road

speed, the Ioniq is relatively

thrifty with its use of available

power.

My best friend is an EV

Nissan Leaf owner in the

United States, his car is old

but it’s still on the original

set of batteries which are

giving him satisfactory

distance, well at least in

warm temperatures, it’s

not so flash in the cold of

Virginia.

He often charges free of

cost at some of the several

sites near his home; he tells

me it’s not all plain sailing

though, several times he

has had to wait in a queue

to charge, and has been

confronted by others who

have said while his car was

on charge: “Move on, you’ve

had long enough.’’

I’m not saying that would

happen in New Zealand,

but there are complications

that will arise until New

Zealand’s EV infrastructure

is fully supported. In the

meantime, there are many

other good reasons to go on

the EV journey.

The Ioniq is just one car

of many which is making

its mark in that part of the

market. For me, I’m still

leaning towards a hybrid

as the preferred option

between the two.
