HOME INVADER STAYS: The Dominion’s front page leads with the story that a Fijian Indian convicted of a crime described at the time as a “home invasion” has had his deportation quashed because of his “good work ethic and savings record”, as well as his good relationship with his wife and daughter.

BON VOYAGE: The front page photo is of French Marathon rower Jo Le Guen tossed about by three-metre swells as he leaves Wellington for Cape Horn yesterday, after an emotional farewell to his wife and baby son.

Also on the front page:

ACC FRAUSTER: A consultant whose business turned over more than $1 million has been exposed as one of the biggest fraudsters of ACC.

TRIPLET TROUBLE: A 19-year-old American woman has defied the odds of “one in many millions” by giving birth to her second set of healthy triplets in 20 months.

POLTERGEIST MYSTERY: Ball Lightening, a spooky phenomenon viewed by the superstitious as an act of God, may finally have a rational explanation thanks to two University of Canterbury chemical engineers.

SCHOOLBOY STOMPED: A schoolboy was kicked and his already broken collarbone stomped on during an attack by a bully at Otago Boys High this week.

SEVENS KICKS OFF: New stadium, new tournament, and a star studded team. The scene is set for a New Zealand victory in the fifth leg of the international rugby sevens tournament, which kicks off at Wellington today.

ERO REPORTS: The Dominion’s editorial looks at the importance of education and the role the Education Review Authority plays in monitering schools teaching effectiveness.
