NZ -Teacher offers educational opportunity if student dumps league for union

Didn't realise it was this bad in new zealand and that they seem so comfortable with it that it's seems to be treated as a bit of a laugh in the article


"Nikoro was a talented schoolboy, both on the sports fields of Auckland's Mount Albert Grammar and in the classroom where he wanted to move into a higher maths stream.

His maths master was happy to accept him - but the teacher was also the school under-15 rugby coach and suggested that a switch from league to union might smooth the way.

Nikoro was happy to oblige.

"I was trying to get into the higher stream and when I asked the teacher he said 'only if you trial for my team'," Nikoro said.

"I thought I'd give it a go. I made the team and he put me into the maths class.""
