North Harbour huffed and
puffed but could not blow down
the Canterbury stockade.
The home side played with
plenty of heart, as they did when
the pulled off the upset of NPC
history in the same clash in 2014,
but Canterbury were too solid and
accurate when it mattered, even
without their usual panache.
The upshot was that Canterbury
are 6-0 and remain in second
position on the Premiership
log, while North Harbour still
require a lift to bring them into
the Championship semi-finals
position. They did, however, score
the only try of the second stanza,
to wing Tevita Li, after some
tremendous lead-up work by the
The first spell saw the visitors win
the attrition and territory battle
(84% in that 40 minutes), posting
two tries for a 14-0 lead.
“The execution of our kicking
game really let us down in that first
spell,” said Harbour captain Bryn
Hall. “ We were camped on our line
the whole time. We came
out better in the second. But
it comes down to those crucial
Wing Johnny McNicholl was
again amongst the tries, latching
onto a Rob Thompson chip
kick, while hooker Ben Funnell
burrowed over after yet another
effective lineout drive. Canterbury’s
kicking game was more telling,
while Harbour, desperately in
need of field position, tended to
kick to hand, not land. They did
win their ball through the likes
of tireless lock Gerard Tuioti-
Mariner, and tackled gamely. No 8
Hapakuki Moala-Liava’a carried
with admirable vigour. But their
mistake rate was higher than that
of Canterbury and the three games
in eight days started to take their
Matt Todd, one of the most
unheralded players in New
Zealand rugby, was again
ubiquitous and a nuisance in
the breakdown. Second five Rob
Thompson, as he was against
Hawke’s Bay, was penetrative.
There was more bad news for
Harbour. Earlier in the week, it
was confirmed that centre Rene
Ranger would not be available
for the rest of the season after he
was not given the all-clear by the
specialist to return to rugby.
Harbour next travels to
Manawatu on Saturday, while
Canterbury have just three days to
prepare for Waikato on Wednesday
In the curtainraiser, North
Harbour Under 19s upset their
Auckland counterparts 15-9,
putting them in good seeding
position for the looming Jock
Hobbs Memorial Under 19

Inquiries to: Natalie Burrett
South Africa veteran Schalk
Burger says the two-time
champions must “write off ” their
stunning World Cup loss to Japan
and urgently find a way to rebound.
The veteran loose for ward was in
the back-row as the Springboks lost
34-32 to Japan in Brighton early
yesterday in the biggest upset in
World Cup history.
South Africa now face a big
danger of not qualifying from
Pool B if they do not win their
next match against Samoa in
Birmingham on Saturday.
“ We need to write it off and move
forward as quickly as possible,”
Burger said as the South Africans
came under heavy fire from back
home after the extraordinary defeat.
The criticism included calls from
South Africa’s main trade union for
coach Heyneke Meyer to be fired.
There was also widespread anger
among fans over the Springboks’
disastrous start to the World Cup.
Burger said South Africa had to
analyse and fix what went wrong
so the team can compete against
“The first thing to understand
is why we lost, why Japan put
us under so much pressure,” the
32-year-old Burger told a press
conference at South Africa’s team
“As soon as we understand what
the weaknesses are that were
exposed in that game, we can move
forward. That must happen fast.
“ Tomorrow we need to put the
game behind us and focus on
Burger said the senior group of
players — which includes several
World Cup-winners — needed to
help turn things around.
“I know our self-confidence is not
where it should be, but it is up to
us as a senior group and a coaching
team to get the guys ready to go
out and play,” explained Burger, a
member of the South Africa side
that beat England in the 2007
World Cup final in Paris.
“ We can’t just play within our
means against Samoa and think
we can win,” the 80-times capped
“ We have to go out there and take
the game from them. It won’t be
easy. What is quite difficult for us is
not to go back into our shells, but
rather take this competition by the
scruff of its neck and go out and
win this match.”
Burger, who plays club rugby
for Japanese side Suntory
Sungoliath, praised Japan’s effort
as “phenomenal” and a major move
forward for the Japanese rugby
union and the global game.
“I’ve got six team-mates that were
on the field and obviously after the
match we had a group chat with
those who can understand English,
and they ’re over the moon,” Burger
“For the last six months they were
targeting us and they got it right.
Credit to (coach) Eddie Jones, it
was a phenomenal performance.
“ We were on the receiving end
and we will watch this game on the
highlights reel for years to come,
but for rugby as a whole and for
Japan — hosting the next World
Cup — it ’s the best thing that could
However, Burger warned that
tough tests still awaited the Brave
Blossoms at this World Cup.
“For Japan the next challenge is
Scotland on Wednesday.”

The West Coast under-13 girls’ team
won two of their three matches at a
tournament in Christchurch at the
In the only match they lost, against
South Canterbury, West Coast started
slowly and were guilty of giving their
much faster and skilled opponents too
much space, finding themselves down
0-1 after eight minutes. Coast then
picked themselves up and defended well
to hold South Canterbury out.
Goalkeeper Amanda Cook was in
good form, while Natalie Morgan in
the halves had a strong game and Molly
Williams in the midfield was a constant
In their second outing, Coast had
a convincing 4-0 win over Mid-
Canterbury B. West Coast dominated
After 11 minutes Emma Boddy slotted
the first of her three goals and Coast
were ahead 1-0 at the break.
The second spell saw Tyra Jamieson
slot a penalty corner and Boddy’s next
two goals came from some good passing
movements from the team. Defender
Maria Burrell excelled, along with
Jamieson and Katelyn Whitehead.
Boddy was a constant threat and was
named West Coast player of the day.
West Coast were impressive in their
final game against the highly ranked
Mid-Canterbury A, beating them 1-0.
Mid-Canterbury dominated the
opening five minutes and earned their
two match penalty corners. West Coast
then settled, but the match was still an
even affair, with both sides battling hard
in the midfield. The scores were level at
The second spell mirrored the first,
with scoring opportunities going astray
for both sides. It took a penalty stroke
by Maria Burrell to break the deadlock,
with just three minutes remaining.
Burrell and Jamieson were a good
fullback combination in defence, while
midfielders Williams and Boddy ran
hard on both defence and attack. Burrell
was named player of the day.

Auckland saved their best till it really
mattered, thumping Northland 6-0 to
retain the women’s K Cup hockey title
in Whangarei at the weekend.
They defended their title with a top
class display of cohesive, assertive
hockey against a Northland side trying
to win the cup, as played in its current
format, for the first time.
Capital followed up by winning the
men’s Challenge Shield for the first time
since 2010, beating Southern 4-3 in a
penalty shootout after the match ended
Auckland women had an up and
down tournament, being beaten 3-0
by Northland early and three times
needing shootouts to win matches. But
they made no race of the final against
the hosts, whom they also beat in last
“ We’re pretty happy with our overall
performance. We kept the goals coming
and kept our foot on the throttle for
the whole 60 minutes,” international
defender Liz Thompson said last
Thompson was one of Auckland’s
outstanding players, locking the
defence shut against a Northland side
who struggled to get clear scoring
opportunities, and also scoring the first
goal with a rasping drive from a penalty
‘’We just wanted to make sure we kept
our basics up and linked up through all
the layers. When we were all doing the
little one percenters and everyone was
doing their bit, it added up to a pretty
good performance,” Thompson said.
Auckland were 3-0 up by halftime,
with further goals from striker Katie
Glynn and midfielder Julia King,
who celebrated her 100th match for
Auckland yesterday along with team-
mate Danielle Sutherland.

It was a tough day for Northland, who
were desperate for victory in front of
their home crowd. However they were
off the pace in the first half, didn’t win a
penalty corner until three minutes after
halftime and were overrun by a clinical
Southern, like the Northland women,
had been hoping for a maiden title but
came unstuck in the shootout in driving
rain. Neither side had been able to get an
edge in the 60 minutes of a tight battle.

attempts blocked by veteran Capital

Auckland finished third in the

British hero Andy Murray has led the
tributes for Lleyton Hewitt after ending
the baseline warrior’s legendary Davis
Cup career in Glasgow.
Murray ’s three victories in Great
Britain’s 3-2 triumph at the Emirates
Arena denied Hewitt the chance to bow
out in ultimate fashion with a fifth final
appearance in the famous team event
the South Australian so covets.
In the end, Murray, with brother Jamie,
had the honour of being Hewitt ’s last
Davis Cup combatant in Britain’s 3-6
6-3 6-4 6-7 (6-8) 6-4 doubles win over
the former world No 1 and Sam Groth.
“It’s a shame that he’s retiring but I’ve
spoken to him a lot over the past couple
of years, and practised with him a lot,
and he’s definitely got everything out of
his body,” Murray said after clinching
“He’s had a number of surgeries and
various issues and still always given his
best when he’s played the Davis Cup.
“He’s got an incredible attitude, he
fights so hard in every match and
yesterday was a very good example of
that, how well he played considering
how little tennis he has played in the
last 18 months.
“He was still returning incredibly well.
“He has a great record too.”
Australian captain Wally Masur hailed
Hewitt an inspiration.
“ What do you say about Lleyton?
It’s always been there to see. He’s put
everything out on the court and it was
no different yesterday,” Masur said.
“The very first point I saw him play
was as a junior at the US Open. He
hasn’t changed a bit since then. He’s full
of enthusiasm. He’s like electricity.
“He’s a good team man. He likes the
team environment. Does a lot behind
the scenes and he’s been a good mentor
to the younger Australian players. ”
Masur also praised Hewitt’s immense
“ When he was young, he was so such
a ferocious competitor that he used to
kind of polarise opinions,” he said.
“But I used to say: ‘Whatever you
think about Lleyton Hewitt, if you pay
the price of admission, he give you full
value.’ And everyone walks away sold
that he’s the real deal. ”
Hewitt, who will formally retire after
the Australian Open in January, farewells
Davis Cup as Australia’s longest-ser ving
and most prolific singles winner in the
The 34-year-old has racked up 42
singles victories in a record 40 ties for
Australia since debuting in 1999.
His 58 victories in total, including 16
in doubles, is also a record.
“He’s had a great career and left a great
legacy and his records will stand,” Masur
Murray said Hewitt would make a
natural captain whenever he assumes
the role from Masur.
“I would imagine that it’s something
he will be really looking for ward to
doing,” the Scot said.
“He would be a great influence and
I think all the young guys in the team
look up to him because of his attitude
towards the game. ” — AAP

World Rugby’s chief medical officer
Martin Raftery insists changes could
be made to tackle laws to reduce the
risk of concussion.
The admission comes three days into
the 2015 World Cup and less than
a week after former Wales flanker
Jonathan Thomas was forced to retire
due to epilepsy that is thought to have
been caused by multiple head traumas.
BBC’s Panorama programme was
told by Raftery that a safety review is in
progress that may lead to a revision of
the laws governing the tackle.
“There’s no doubt that the biggest
area that we think, that we know where
concussion is going to occur is in the
tackle, so that will help us to look at the
tackle and see what we can do to make
it safer,” Dr Raftery said.
“It could be (that the laws are
adjusted). I think that my job is to
identify risk and then look for solutions
to the law-makers to make the changes
that will bring about protection of the
Reports of concussions have almost
doubled in British grassroots rugby
over the past few years, however the
Scottish Rugby Union’s chief medical
officer, Dr James Robson believes that
could be a positive.
“ Two seasons ago we had a real
push, a real initiative — we educated
people that only by knowing what was
happening with injury could we make a
significant difference,” Robson said.
“I truly believe that the doubling
between that season and the following
season of the number was actually
down to that education.
“I strongly believe that we do need to
look at the laws of the game and the
way that it’s played.”
“I still think it’s the players who need
more educating about the warning
signs and getting out of that ‘digging in’
mentality,” Thomas said.

Auckland’s best performance of the

of their first three matches, Paul
Feeney ’s men have strung together
four wins on the trot.
They were made to work extremely
