Robbie Frew has consented to me posting his recent presentation to the Metro Board. Here it is so have a read and see if you agree? The Canterbury Board meet late this month (July). Help them understand the right decision for cricket in the province of Canterbury. My name is Robbie Frew. I have been playing or coaching for the Country Senior Team for the past 11 seasons. I have also been involved in the country academy, development tours and primary school teams for the association. Prior to returning to Country I played 14 years for the Riccarton Club. During this period I represented Canterbury for 8 seasons. When it comes to cricket I will always consider that I am a proud Cantabrian. Country and Metro are the two biggest stakeholders in Canterbury Cricket. I believe it is imperative to the success of both the organisations that they work together to achieve their goals and to provide strong competitions, teams and players that will ultimately add to the strength and success of Canterbury and New Zeala ...
NRL home grounds to play host to National Rugby Championship Updated Wed 16 Jul 2014, 2:06pm AEST Map: Brookvale 2100 The Australian Rugby Union (ARU) is invading enemy territory, with 18 matches in the new National Rugby Championship (NRC) to be played at the spiritual homes of NRL clubs. The NRC draw was released on Wednesday, with Leichhardt Oval, Brookvale Oval and Parramatta Stadium - the respective homes of the NRL's Wests Tigers, Manly and the Eels - all to host multiple fixtures. With matches pitting Queensland Country against North Harbour and Brisbane City against Canberra to serve as curtain raisers to two Wallabies Tests, the NRC will also be thrust into the spotlight at Lang Park and the Gold Coast Titans' home ground at Robina. ARU chief executive Bill Pulver is hopeful of building a "tribal" following among rugby fans with a competition he believes will rival New Zealand's national provincial competition and South Africa's Currie Cup in popularity. "If you look in South Africa and New Zeala ...

On This Day In Music.wow! what a day!! :) 1955, Elvis Presley (Scotty Moore and Bill Black) played the first of three nights at the Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi. The local paper ran a preview which read; ‘A good looking youngster who has become a juke-box favorite with his That's Alright, Mama, and Blue Moon of Kentucky. Presley is expected to repeat some of his hit tunes at the Airmen's Club show in addition to mixing up a few country tunes with some "bop" and novelty numbers.’ 1961, Gary U.S. Bonds started a two-week run at No.1 on the US charts with 'Quarter To Three', a No.7 hit in the UK. Before Bonds recorded this, it was an instrumental by The Church Street Five called 'A Night With Daddy G.' Bond's manager added lyrics to it and had him record it. This is often covered by Bruce Springsteen, who is a big fan. In 1981, Springsteen produced a successful comeback album for Bonds. 1964, During a world tour, The Beatles played two shows at Town Hall, Dunedin, South Island, New Zeala ...
