Kiwi rugby league players don't come from either type of locale. They mostly come from the slums of Auckland, which are not pretty at all.


you are an ignoramus of the highest order. let me guess you've seen once were warriors on betamax haven't you?

I would be surprised if you could find half the days of the summer season (December to February) in New Zealand when it was warm enough to swim.


Complete nonsense!

But anyway the Kiwi (i.e. mostly Polynesian) rugby league players, unlike so many of the Aussies, don't live in those beach locations.



yes indeed there are no beaches in the Auckland region rolleyes.gif

Have you been here? in the summer?

You do know the difference between Australia and New Zealand don't you?
Kiwis are from New Zealand. North Queensland, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Manly, Bondi, Maroubra and Cronulla are in Australia.
There may be a large ex-patriot New Zealand community in Australia but I'd still hazard a guess that most Kiwis live in New Zealand.
This and this suggest you are talking ###### about the weather in New Zealand.


Yo seem confused about why I was making reference to Australian beach towns and suburbs. I was comparing proximity to the beach in Australia vs New Zealand (mainly Auckland, where most rugby league Kiwis are from).

Australians live in Australia, and Kiwis live in New Zealand. But many Kiwis come to Australia for the higher living standards, warmer temperatures and longer swimming season.

Your charts do not disprove what I said. New Zealand has about 3 months of swimming season, and many summer days are not that warm anyway.

No. I saw Once Were Warriors on Laser Disk. I was shocked and horrified. The Auckland Polynesian rugby union/rugby league community, as portrayed in that film, came across as very scary. No wonder they are so good at both codes of rugby. Only religious people like Adrian Morley have the moral strength to stand up to the Kiwis.

It seems that gentle people like myself and my family would not fit in easily in scary Auckland.

No. I have never been to Auckland in the summer. But I flew over it and decided that it wasn't for me. I have never been able to erase from my mind the images that I witnessed in the film Once Were Warriors. My wife is scared to land in Auckland. So are my children. After seeing Once Were Warriors they would prefer to holiday in Iraq or Afghanistan rather than set foot in Auckland.

I have seen both films. Which is why I would never dare criticise South Sydney in the company of Russell Crowe.

Needless to say I would never venture into the Australian desert without a machine gun and a few hand grenades within easy reach. Given the difficulty of acquiring such I take the easy course. In the interests of safety I stay close to the seaside, where most civilised Australians tend to congregate. I am most comfortable sitting on the Esplanade at Manly, with my Bobby Fulton T-shirt, or on the sands of Bondi with my Artie Beetson T-shirt. That way I always get pleasant looks from the locals. If a local rugby league fan wants to strike up a conversation, I usually tell them about the Harlequins or the Catalans or Toulouse --- which most of them don't know about -- and how important it is for them to come visit London and Perpignan and Toulouse to support these clubs. Generally I tend to tell them how lucky they are to live near the seaside in a warm, safe country like Australia, and if they want to see the world, it's best to avoid damp, cold, boring places like Wakefield and Castleford, and damp, cold, dangerous places like Auckland, where the Jake Hekes of this world still run rampant.

The places to visit in New Zealand are said to be all on the south Island, with Queenstown the pick of the crop.

I did not want to rub it in too much, that's all.

Since your user name suggests that you are apparently both a Kiwi and a fervent traditionalist, I wonder if are you an admirer of Jake Heke?

According to word on the street Nathan Brown read my original post and started to take a long, hard look at himself. He didn't like what he saw.

This announcement must surely be the outcome.

I think that really is the silliest thing I've ever read on here.

It's a shame though, really. I still had hope that you were an idiot and not a troll, but nobody is as stupid as your last few comments.

Don't knock the power of religion Mr P. It is vital for retaining the civilisational respect for opponents among many tough rugby league players. So many of the Polynesian peoples themselves are religious Christians. David Solomona and Ali Lauititi come to mind, as does Israel Folau. Religion enables you to accept pain and suffering. It also mitigates the darker desires, such as the desire to maim, and the desire for revenge. So you never hear of the likes of Ali Lauititi or David Solomona undertaking vicious play or excessively violent tackles.

Religious sentiment is weaker in Australia. You can be certain that the more vicious Australian players such as Paul Gallen and Luke O'Donnell are not religious.

Adrian Morley and Matt King now go to church together. That has enabled Matt King to settle down in northern England much better than he had been, and we have seen the positive results in his on field performance.

I am not religious but I see the social virtues of moderate religious commitment.
