Rugby: National Secondary Schools Tournament Day Two

National Secondary Schools Tournament Day Two

Auckland, September 3, 2013 – A good crowd had already gathered at Bruce Pulman in advance of the 10am kick off of the second day of the National Secondary Schools tournament. By mid morning all the grounds were surrounded by rugby league fans enjoying great competition in beautiful sunshine.

Haka reverberated around the grounds, before the games got underway on fields which are holding up well to the demands of two games a day, every day. Some stunning runaway tries have been the feature of high scoring games which are quickly showing which are the teams to watch on Thursday and Friday (semi’s and finals days).

Many first round winners backed up on the second day of competition including last year’s winners St Paul’s, along with Tokoroa High School and Rotorua Boys High School. With St Paul’s to face Tokoroa on Wednesday, only one can go through to the semi finals unbeaten, while Rotorua are looking strong in the Developing Grade.

Off field action continues to keep the crowds entertained, with Mai FM bringing out their basketball hoop and the NZ Police offering a variety of fun challenges. This afternoon the players will take part in the very popular position specific coaching sessions with past players including Kiwis and NRL players.

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>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

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>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

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>>
