ARL Premiership previews

ARL Premiership previews

For Immediate Release

The top four teams all face off in a weekend that is sure to reveal plenty about the real contenders for this year’s Appliance Shed Fox Memorial Premiership title.

Fourth-placed Howick host the table-topping Pt Chevalier Pirates, after losing their first match of 2014 last week, going down 32-16 to Mt Albert.

Mt Albert themselves travel to take on Papakura, who sit one spot behind them in third place, with a 4-1 record after the opening month of competition play.

If the Hornets and Sea Eagles can spring upset victories this weekend the Fox table will have four teams all sitting on ten points heading into round seven, all sharing the competition lead.

The Auckland Rugby League Match of the Round sees the resurgent Marist Saints take on the Otahuhu Leopards at Murray Halberg Park. The battle of the centres promises to be a good one in this game, with former Samoan international Tangi Ropati, and exciting youngster Josh Tamaseu-Russell, taking on talented Otahuhu pair Atelea Nafetalai and Christian Mika.

Richmond will once again go searching for their first points of the season when they travel to Glenora, while Northcote and Mangere East go to battle at Birkenhead War Memorial.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
