The ACES Gear Up For Round Two Against The Stags At Pukekura Park

The ACES will look to recover quickly from yesterday’s loss to the Central Stags with an identical fixture at the same ground tomorrow.

A similar scenario last weekend in Hamilton allowed the ACES to bounce back against Northern Districts, having also lost the first match of a dual showdown. Unfortunately, that match was curtailed by rain, preventing a result despite an improved performance from the ACES batters.

There is only one change from yesterday’s match with Adi Ashok sitting out as he recovers from illness. As the squad travelled with 13 players, no extra players will need to be called on.

The forecast for New Plymouth is cloudy with a high chance of showers throughout the day.

Goldie painted only a handful of landscapes, concentrating mainly on indigenous portraits, which earned him a global reputation as NZ’s finest painter of respected Māori elders (kaumātua). More

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
