The Sunday News

The Sunday News front page is dominated by a report that All Black Coach John Hart and vice-captain Jeff Wilson are set to be paid $50,000 each in an out of court libel settlement with Rugby News. An article called "Sssh… Lies, Damned Lies And Rumours' is said to have contained malicious and false statements.

Two teasers on the front:

"Sexy Rachel Hunter had Hollywood talking when she arrived at a move premier without her new man. B-movie actor Michael Wetherley, nicknamed "the sexual lighthouse", apparently sneaked in through a side entrance."

"A $10 million youth jail will have a heated indoor pool, gym and Sky TV. Builders have dubbed the Palmerston North centre "Club Med for bad kids"."


Actor Rena Owen wants to get married and have children.

A man waiting for a liver transplant has been caught drink driving - three times over the limit.
