New Look Vodafone Warriors Name Team

Auckland, New Zealand, February 13, 2001 – Vodafone Warriors Coach
Daniel Anderson has named his first team for 2001. Co-captained by Stacey Jones and Kevin Campion, the side will meet the Canberra Raiders this Sunday, February 18, at Ericsson Stadium, 4pm.

“We are prepared for Sunday, physically and mentally. There is a good buzz among the guys. The younger players especially are determined to consolidate positions in the first grade squad – competition will not just be with the Raiders, but with each other. No one will be complacent and I’m expecting a good result,” says Anderson.

Vodafone Warriors general manager, Mick Watson, is looking forward to kick-off. “There has been a lot of work done in these past four months, both on and off the field. It’s exciting things are finally coming to fruition. Recent levels of public support have been phenomenal – attendance at the Open Day was better than expected. We look forward to seeing everyone back on Sunday.”

Gates will open on Sunday at 2pm, and the curtain raiser (New Zealand Police vs. Australian Police) will commence at 2.15pm.

The Vodafone Warriors line-up will be as follows:
1. Ivan Cleary
2. Henry Faafili
3. Richie Blackmore
4. David Myles
5. Francis Meli
6. Cliff Beverley
7. Stacey Jones (C)

Howard Davis: Roddy Doyle's Grim and Gritty Rosie

Although it was completed over two years ago, Roddy Doyle's first original screenplay in over eighteen years has only just arrived in New Zealand. It's been well worth the wait. More>>

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith. His presence is pervasive through the book. All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
