Jerry Collins Exclusive Interview on ‘Campbell Live’ – Who And What Was He Running From?


Jerry Collins, the former All Black captain who was arrested in Japan last week, has spoken exclusively to Campbell Live’s John Campbell over the weekend at the police station he is being detained.

Arrested and taken into custody by 20 police officers for carrying two knives at a department store, Jerry has been unable to tell his side of the story, and the reasons he felt the need to carry a deadly weapon – until now.

In an exclusive feature tonight, John will detail why it happened, who and what Jerry was running from and address allegations of drugs in his system.

“Over the weekend I travelled to the Japanese city of Hamamatsu to meet with Jerry Collins to unravel the real story,” says Campbell.

“After 10 days incarceration, I ask how he’s holding up, and what does the future hold for this Kiwi sport star?”

Jerry Collin’s story, exclusively on Campbell Live tonight at 7:00pm, on TV3.

The full story will be available later this evening, at www.3News.co.nz/CampbellLive

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
