Forum Sevens: Life?s Injustices

THE Haka is a common fixture in the International sporting arena today. Interpreted as a war dance, the Haka (Ha = breath, Ka = to ignite) is a way to “ignite the breath, energise the body and inspire the spirit”�, to prepare the body, mind and soul for the upcoming battle. Many have had the prestigious honour of leading the Kiwis Haka but none more awe-inspiring and somewhat fearsome, than Tawera Nikau. ‘T', in full cry, with his mullet flying, eyes bulging and tongue protruding, could make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end and this was before the ensuing battle had even begun. Unfortunately, due to a feud with Richie Blackmore stemming from a dispute between their wives, Nikau's career with the Kiwis came to an abrupt end in 1997 after donning the black jersey on 19 occasions between 1989-97 and, apart from an impromptu Haka in the shed after Melbourne's 1999 Grand Final win, we were only to see Nikau lead the Haka in the sporting arena again, during the World Cup (2000) as Captain of the Aotearoa Maori side.

The Magpies have brought Peterson into halfback, pushing Levy onto the interchange bench. They?ll be hoping the change can turn around their fortunes after last week?s loss to the Cougars.

Bartercard Cup - Semis time

THE first round of the semi finals for New Zealand's Bartercard Cup start tonight when the Hibiscus Coast Raiders take on the Eastern Tornadoes at Ericsson Stadium, kick off at 7.45pm. Which ever team loses tonight will be out of the competition for 2003. The Raiders will need to find their earlier form to take on the Tornadoes who have certainly looked impressive at the right end of the competition. The win the Tornadoes had the last time these two sides met, in Round 10, will certainly give them confidence however the Raiders have been through finals football many times before and know they have to lift their game to win. A tough game to call a winner, but definitely some good football ahead for the spectators.
