Vodafone Warriors Head To Penrith

“In Touch And On A Roll”

Auckland, New Zealand, July 31, 2001 – Buoyed by last week’s performance against the in-form Canterbury Bulldogs, the Vodafone Warriors take on the Penrith Panthers this Sunday afternoon at Penrith Football Stadium.

Coach Daniel Anderson said the Warriors were well in the hunt for a top eight spot, but all players needed to keep their attention focussed firmly on the job in hand when the team meets the troubled cellar-dwellers.

“At this stage of the competition, every game matters, every point counts. And, as the Roosters found out two rounds ago, the Panthers can hurt you if you let your guard down.

“If we can duplicate last week’s defensive effort, build on the pride and passion we’ve shown over the past two weeks, and capitalise on the lessons we’ve learned this season we can come back home to Ericsson with a win.

Anderson has named the following team to take on the Panthers, with both Ivan Cleary and Awen Guttenbeil in the starting lineup

1. Ivan Cleary
2. Henry Faafili
3. Wairangi Koopu
4. Clinton Toopi
5. Francis Meli
6. Motu Tony
7. Stacey Jones (c)
8. Jerry SeuSeu
9. Monty Betham
10. Ali Lauitiiti
11. Logan Swann
12. Awen Guttenbeil
13. Kevin Campion (c)
14. Justin Murphy
15. Mark Tookey
16. Nathan Wood
17. Richard Villasanti
18. David Myles
19. Jason Death

The Vodafone Warriors meet the Panthers , at Penrith Stadium, Sunday August 5, 2:00 local time.

ENDS.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
