Planes, trains and automobiles of all makes
and models will be on display on Sunday for the
biannual Greymouth Rodders ‘Big Boys’ Toys’.
Spokesman Pete Smith said it would be a
great day out for all the family.
He expects a variety of machines to be
on display from club members and other
enthusiasts who other wise would not have the
opportunity to show off their bits and pieces.
Past displays have included a gyocopter, and
model trains are also in the mix.
“It’s a free for all,” Smith said. “ We want
like-minded people to come on down and give
members of the public the chance to have a look
at whatever they may have hidden away in their
He hoped members of the Greymouth
Vintage Car Club would also head down to the
display, at the Aratuna Freighters depot, with
their prized vehicles.
Over the years there have been a variety of
machines displayed from armoured vehicles to
hovercraft, classics, hots rods and motorcycles.
“ We’ll begin setting up the displays around
7am and the gates will open to the public
between 9am or 9.30am until 4pm.”
It had already drawn some interest from
enthusiasts from Nelson, Blenheim and
Christchurch. “ The event is mainly designed for
local people who want to show off their various
toys and other interesting machines.”
Anyone interested in showing their ‘toys’
can contact Smith on 768 5711 or Colin Skeats

under-19 cricket team have
broken records left, right
and centre in their 243-run
World Cup pool victory
over Kenya, scoring a
mammoth total of 436-4 in
their 50-over innings.

Kenya in D unedin —
surpasses New Zealand’s efforts.
New Zealand openers Jakob Bhula and
Rachin Ravindra led the way, scoring
an age-group record of 180 and 117
respectively, while Finn Allen scored 90.
Bhula and Ravindra put on a 245-run
Kenya required a daunting run rate
of above 8.72 for victory but appeared
all but resigned to defeat at the crease,
plodding to 193-4 in their 50 overs.
They took few risks with the bat as
their innings petered out, with the
impressive Wellington-based Ravindra
bagging two wickets.

Former Proteas wicketkeeper Mark
Boucher, who had a 15-year test career,
described the Windies junior team as
“disgusting”. Former Australian captain
Lisa Sthalekar reckoned: “I can’t believe
what I am seeing.”
Cricket greats Faf D u Plessis and
Mitchell Johnson had a Twitter duel
over the issue. South African D u Plessis
described the dismissal as an “absolute
joke” while Aussie quick Johnson said the
law was the law.
ESPN’s acclaimed CricInfo website
stated that the “ West Indies have once
again ignited the spirit-of-cricket debate
at the under-19 World Cup” after their
captain/wicketkeeper Emmanuel Stewart
appealed when South African opener
Jiveshan Pillay picked up a stationary ball
near the stumps to hand it to a fielder.
Pillay touched the still ball with his bat,
then threw it to Stewart who talked to
the on-field umpires. Pillay was given out
for obstructing the field.
The third umpire had ruled in the West
Indies’ favour in accordance with the
law which states: “Either batsman is out
obstructing the field if, at any time while
the ball is in play and, without the consent
of a fielder, he/she uses the bat or any part
of his/her person to return the ball to any
fielder.” — NZME
