Media Update
Tuesday 20 March

The Silver Ferns have named their 12 to take on the Malawi Queens in their opening Test of the Taini Jamison Trophy in Auckland this week.

Defender Temalisi Fakahokotau will sit out the match after rolling her ankle during training this week but Silver Ferns’ management said she would be ready to be considered for the remainder of the four-day series.

It is the first time the Silver Ferns have played the Malawi Queens since the Netball World Cup in Sydney in 2015 when they won 57-49.

The Silver Ferns will also meet the Jamaica Sunshine Girls and Fiji Pearls before a finals day at the North Shore Events Centre on Saturday to determine the Taini Jamison Trophy winner.

It is the final hit-out for all teams before next month’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in Australia.

Silver Ferns Team:
Katrina Grant (captain),
Maria Folau (vice-captain),
Ameliaranne Ekenasio
Shannon Francois
Kelly Jury
Grace Kara
Claire Kersten

Samantha Sinclair

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
