EasiYo Tactix Granted Permission for Second Import Player

EasiYo Tactix Granted Permission for Second Import Player for 2015

TTNL, operators of Netball’s ANZ Championship, have granted Christchurch-based EasiYo Tactix permission to contract a second import player for the 2015 season.

TTNL General Manager Andy Crook says it is important to continue to support the EasiYo Tactix as they continue rebuild, however TTNL will be closely monitoring their progress.

“We acknowledge that recruiting top players to Christchurch has been a challenge in previous seasons and we will be reviewing this decision on an annual basis,” Crook said.

“However we feel it’s in the best interests of the league to ensure EasiYo Tactix are able to build a squad capable of challenging the other nine teams in what is the world’s most exciting Netball league.”

The Mainland team has already signed fan favourite Malawian international Mwai Kumwenda to the playing roster next year after a successful debut season in 2014. Kumwenda was named Best New Talent in her inaugural ANZ Championship season. The other imported player last season was England captain, mid-courter Jade Clarke.

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.
