Blair into Kiwis Squad


PRESS RELEASE

Blair into Kiwis Squad

Cairns, Australia, October 5, 2012 – Adam Blair has been recalled to the Kiwis squad for next Saturday’s Test against the Kangaroos in Townsville, following the late injury withdrawal of Jeremy Smith.

Smith injured his shoulder in the Cronulla Sharks last game of the NRL season. A thorough medical recently with his new club, the Newcastle Knights, suggested further examination of the shoulder was needed. An MRI scan this week has shown the severity of the injury had been underestimated and Smith has been ruled out.

Blair, from the Wests Tigers, has played 25 Tests and is the third most-capped player in the Kiwis squad, behind Simon Mannering and Benji Marshall.

The Kiwis assemble in Cairns, with a first training on Monday morning at Stan Williams Park.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
