Vodafone Warriors head out of ‘hell alley’ still in touch

Auckland, New Zealand, July 24, 2001 – When the Vodafone Warriors take on the in-form Canterbury Bulldogs this Saturday night at Ericsson Stadium they would have played the leading four teams in the Telstra Premiership in their last four consecutive games.

Daniel Anderson said he refuses to concede that his side is out of finals contention and although he has lost the raw power of rookie forward Iafeta Paleaaesina for the remainder of the season, he knows his team has enough bite in them to cause the Bulldogs problems.

‘We are still in with a chance and I’m predicting our top-eight prospects will go right down to the last game of the season. I’ll be very happy if we can come out of hell alley with two wins from the four best teams in the competition”, said Anderson.

“We continued to show a lot of character as a team in our game against the Knights, we scored some very good tries, yet we had individual defensive lapses that were costly. The Bulldogs have been on fire in recent weeks so we will have to be right on our game to combat their strike-power”.

Although Ivan Cleary retired with a back injury during the Knights game, he has been named to play at fullback. Mark Tookey returns to the interchange bench to cover for the loss of Paleaaesina.

Daniel Anderson has named the following team to take on the Canterbury Bulldogs

1. Ivan Cleary
2. Henry Faafili
3. Wairangi Koopu
4. Clinton Toopi
5. Francis Meli
6. Motu Tony
7. Stacey Jones (c)
8. Jerry SeuSeu
9. Monty Betham
10. Ali Lauitiiti
11. Logan Swann
12. Awen Guttenbeil
13. Kevin Campion (c)
14. Justin Murphy
15. Mark Tookey
16. Nathan Wood
17. Richard Villasanti

The Vodafone Warriors will take the Canterbury Bulldogs, at Ericsson Stadium, Saturday July 28, 7.30pm local time.

ENDS.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
