Northwest gales and heavy
rain in Wellington were
responsible for sinking a 12
metre yacht in Evans Bay and
causing a slip that closed the
Johnsonville rail line. Houses
in Hataitai had windows
broken and roofing iron on a
Wadestown house lifted. High

off a fast-finishing North
Queensland to secure a scrappy
18-16 win in last night ’s NRL
clash and maintain their 100%
record at Parramatta Stadium.
Dominant for large spells of
the game thanks to another
masterful performance from
Jarryd Hayne, the Eels hung
on in the final five minutes as
the Cowboys finished strongly.
A Michael Morgan try in the
78th minute proved to be too
little too late as Paul Green’s
side slumped to their sixth

Will Hopoate did his hopes
of returning to the NSW side
no harm with a solid defensive
display but a dropped pass
just in front of the North
Queensland line with less than
a minute remaining set up a
ner vous finish.
The Eels will be wondering
how they did not wrap up
the game earlier with Chris
Sandow only converting one of
Three tries in the opening
40 minutes from the hosts —
scored by Junior Paulo, Semi
Radradra and Ken Sio — did
most of the damage with James
Tamou going over for the
advantage with a try just after
the restart following some
good work from Sandow and
a smart offload from the giant

last time Brad Arthur’s side

Cowboys hit back through

Parramatta, who after two
successive wooden spoons now
find themselves two points off
Despite the win, Arthur said
his side will have little chance
of progressing to the finals if
they cannot produce consistent
performances over 80 minutes.
“ We’re a young team and we
have to learn how to control a
game,” Arthur said.
“It was a game of lost
opportunities. The pleasing
thing is they dug deep ... and
kept scrambling in defence, but
we found a way to win; we just
need to find a way to be better.
We can’t dish that up again.
“If we want to be a genuine
threat in the competition we
need to be better with our
patience. If you play like that
at the back end of the year you
will struggle to win. ”
Green admitted his side left
their run too late to win the
game and said his four player
involved in Origin — Matt
Scott, Tamou, Brent Tate and
Thurston — had struggled.
“ We missed an opportunity;
we need to start like that, not
finish,” Green said.
“ We have to take our
opportunities. I was worried
about this game with our
Origin players. I wasn’t worried
how how they ’d back up last
week, but this week they were
rest of the guys to have a better
effort than tonight so we’re not
always reliant on those guys to
produce.” — AAP
It is the first test of the year
but for All Blacks captain Richie
McCaw there are no excuses
for a rusty performance against
Speaking after the team’s
captain’s run at Eden Park
yesterday afternoon, McCaw said
every player in the squad had had
enough game time to be to be
capable of going up a level.
“The reality is it ’s not going to be
perfect because you’ve got 15 guys
trying to stop you but accepting
mistakes just because you haven’t
played together for while, that ’s
not the standard you need to be
at when you’re playing for the All
Blacks,” he said.
“ We’ve all played plenty of rugby
up until this point so there are no
excuses, really. ”
It is the start of a three-match
series and another step on the
journey to a World Cup defence,
however, McCaw said the focus
had solely been on a one-off
Lancaster’s men, the last team
to beat the All Blacks when they
stunned them at Twickenham at
the end of 2012.
“ We understand the challenge
that ’s in front of us. Test footy is
different to what we’ve been doing
for the last two or three months so
we’re going to have to make sure
we’re quick to get up to speed with
that and the intensity that comes
from it,” McCaw said.
He said the debutantes in the
team, Malakai Fekitoa and Patrick
Tuipulotu, appeared quietly excited
about the challenge ahead, with
another “rookie”, the returning
Jerome Kaino, also maintaining
a quiet intensity. McCaw said
Kaino’s form for the Blues on his
return from Japan was no surprise
“ We all knew he was a classy
player before he left. They must
have taken it pretty easy on him
in Japan — he’s fresh and ready to
go.” — APNZ

If some of the rhetoric from backs coach
Andy Farrell seeps into the England psyche
and they play with his authority, then tonight’s
test will pack some wallop.
Farrell was in bullish voice on the eve of the
opening test at Eden Park, speaking with the
confidence of a man who played at the highest
level in league and rugby for England.
Since his extensive playing days petered out
five years ago, the 39-year-old has turned his
gaze to coaching where his practical nature
dovetails with coach Stuart Lancaster and
others on the staff.
You sense Farrell could still stare down
any member in the squad and cope well in a
skills challenge while his hard edge would be
On top of the work ethic England preaches,
they want to be more ruthless about tactics and
decisions which ultimately count for so much
in international rugby.
This visit to New Zealand was a brilliant time
to assess England’s progress.
“People who don’t give us a chance would
be the people who don’t really know our
journey that we have been on so far,” Farrell
“And the people who do give us a chance and
have said polite things about us, understand
that for the last two years we have been getting
better and we have been getting better fairly
England had been involved in many big
matches and responded well to those challenges.
This test was near the apex of those contests
and Farrell and his crew wanted to see even
more progress from England.
Certainly not incompetence, which ruled
premier halfback Danny Care out of this test
when he aggravated a shoulder injury he first
suffered in the premiership. At training on
Monday, Care attempted a grubber kick but
had an air-shot, stubbed his foot, fell over and
further damaged his shoulder.
Those who believe this tour will be calamitous
will point to that incident as evidence of the
Farrell said Care would be fit for the second
test and his absence was not a setback for morale
because selections had been interchangeable
during the last fortnight ’s training.
“Belief comes with hard work and preparation
and that ’s what we have always been about,
getting our plan together,” Farrell said.
“Everyone knowing their jobs inside out and
the work off the field, preparation not just
about ourselves but the opposition has been
England needed to play the game and not be
daunted by the occasion. They understood the
part rugby played in New Zealand’s psyche and
respected the All Blacks and the difficulties of
beating them at home.
Like tonight’s rivals they had travelled and
won in Paris and Dublin, playing away was new
but not daunting with the implication victory
in Auckland, Dunedin or Hamilton was next
on the agenda.
New places did not deter them, said Farrell,
they did not shirk the challenge. England
needed to improve their rugby while the
fighting spirit had always been there.
“The rugby is getting better it is not where we
want to be ... which is the best.”
No excuses, McCaw
