Kiwis kick off 4pm 1 November

Kick-off for this year's Four Nations international rugby league game between the NZ Kiwis and Toa Samoa at Toll Stadium will be at 4pm on November 1, and tickets are now on sale.

The game at Toll Stadium will be something of a homecoming for some of the Kiwis, so the team will be making the most of their stay in Whangarei to get among the community.

Adam Blair was born in Whangarei, while Elijah Taylor spent some of his youth in Northland, attended Kaitaia College and considers himself a Northlander. He is a proud supporter of the Northland DHB “water is the best drink” campaign launched earlier this year.

“This event is all about family, friends and the wider community, so kick-off has been set for 4pm in Whangarei to suit families,” said Venues and Events Manager John Lynch.

“We are expecting a sell-out crowd, so it is suggested that people do not leave it to the last minute for ticket purchases. Tickets are purchased online through Ticketek or can be sourced from the Forum North Box Office.”

Mr Lynch said there are several opportunities for corporate hosting, enquires should be directed to Ticketek Hospitality on 09 336 4118 or hospitality@ticketek.co.nz

Ticket prices are as follows:
November 1
NZ Kiwis v Toa Samoa, Whangarei
A Reserve - adults $35, children $20
B Reserve - adults $20, children $10, family $50

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
