Benji Marshall & the Tigers Preparing For The Clash!!

Today I went to Ellerslie Rugby League club to see my favourite team the TIGERS train for their big clash against the Warriors tomorrow. It was so cool to be up close to an actual professional Rugby League team!!! It was also cool not only to see them figure out their moves. Also some damaging players! Like BENJI MARSHALL, TANIELA TUIAKI, JOHN MORRIS, and lot's of other upcoming Superstars. Guess what? I got my photo taken with these 3 SUPERSTARS!

Me & Taniela 'the train' Tuiaki!

As a young follower of the Tigers I think that their best foward is a man named CHRIS HEIGHINGTON, and the best back would be BENJI MARSHALL. I also think that the biggest person in their team would be Daine Laurie he is a massive guy with braids platted in his hair. I think that the main match up between the Tigers and Warriors would have to be between the two Tongan torpedoes 'the Beast' Manu Vatuvei and Taniela 'the train' Tuiaki. They are both devastating ball runners or you could say they are both wrecking balls!!!

Benji Marshall, my cousin Kane and me!

Thanks to Podgorani for asking me a question in one of my other posts on the Tigers. Well I think that the Tigers are going to win by 12 or more points because they are more skillful than the Warriors. They have a better plattform also when on attack and lots more other things that make their team good! Let's hope that the Tigers will win against the Warriors!! Go the TIGERS ROOOOOOAAAAAARRRRR!!!!
Me & John Morris! Kane, Daine Laurie & me!

The Pundit


What is 'Pundit?' Well I looked in a dictionary and found this... '1. an expert in a particular subject or field who is frequently called on to give opinions about it to the public'.

It all started from when I was presenting about what we learn at Pt England School. On this particular day a reporter and a professional photographer were listening to our group of presenters. The reporter's name is Lauren Bartlett and the photographer was Chris Skelton.

After the presentation I got interviewed by these two people about what I thought about Blogging and what it's all about. I got asked many questions and it was really cool for me to talk to someone who is interested in what I do.

Chris Skelton, the Professional Photographer, took a photo of me when I was in the middle of blogging. Oh and by the way the magizine that I was on was the number one business magazine in 2008 which is soooo cool!!

This really makes me proud of myself and what I have achieved throughout the past year since I've been blogging - from year 5 till now - year 6. This motivates me to work harder for more upcoming events that I will blog on.
Thanks Idealog - Lauren and Chris!
Thanks to Chris Skelton for the fantastic photo

A Super Cool One Day HOLIDAY!!!

On Monday at Point England Primary school we had a Teachers Only Day. I nearly forgot that there was no school!! I asked my mum "Where am I going today mum"? My mum said to me, "You're going to school".  I wondered what she meant.  I took my little brother to his pre-school and then I came back to school. And then I saw what was going on in the hall - I saw lots of cool activities waiting for me. There were ping-pong tables, a trampoline with a splash pad and a Nintendo WII!!!

This looked to be a very cool day for me  - it really was a cool day for me!!!  At first I was doing stunts on the Trampoline onto the splash pad. OOOHH and I nearly forgot that after a while on the splash pad I went to play Basket Ball with a ball and a hoop. I asked Mrs Verry if I was allowed to lower the hoop so that I could try to Slam Dunk into the hoop!!

Then after that, what do you know, I was already playing the Nintendo WII. At first I was playing Boxing against a boy named Esra and I had won by three knock outs. Then after that we went on the  the training section. It was coo.l I was the record holder for most hit's out of 30 I had 21 hit's. I also had the most hits on a punching bag!!! 
It was a cool day and thanks to Mrs Verry,  Mr Brown and Daisy for an awesome day of fun and excitement!!

The NRL 2009 Here Come The Tigers!!!



The NRL competition has been absolutely THRILLER so far. The team that I have been supporting from the beginning of the year is the WEST TIGERS!!! My favourite players from their team are,Taniela Tuiaki,Benji Marshall and my most favourite player is CHRIS LAURENCE he is one of the most fastest and strongest centres in the whole competition. Right know they are in the top eight and have won four and lost four my favourite game that they have played so far is when they took on the Melbourne Storm and won 16-6. I liked it because there were only a few minutes to go and the Tigers were winning,the score was 10-6 to the Tigers but people were scared that Storm would get another try!!! So then it was a Tigers scrum and they were 85 metres away from the line and Benji Marshall the magic man made a beautiful move and made a short pass out to Chris Laurence.

Chris was running down the sideline he had broke threw the line and was off!! Billy Slater was he was chasing but Chris Laurence had tooken off like a rocket from the start and no one could catch him and that had sealed the win the MIGHTY WEST TIGERS!!!!GO THE MIGHTY TIGERS!!!!!

Immersion Rotation

In my class Room 18 we are looking closely at the main differences on groups of Dinosaurs, but what made it cooler was that we got to have an Immersion Rotation. We got to go into different classes to see what they have been learning about Dinosaurs. When our class went to Room 15 their teacher told us about how Dinosaurs move, when we went to Room 16 we learned about their Classification. In Room 17 we learned about the time line, and in Room 14 we did Observational drawing. They were all very cool activities and I really do wish that it never ended.

Well anyway my favourite Dinosaur is a"Triceratops" . I found out that Triceratops means 'three horned head'. I like it because because it has a plate to protect its head and because they travel in herds. It has been fun through out the week and I have learnt tons more things about Dinosaurs.  I can't wait to start my my report on Dinosaurs.  This term is going to be AWESOME!!!!

What's Going On???

Today on the 9th of May my mother read the New Zealand Herald and guess what was on the front page sport? Your guess would be the Anzac test between the KIWISVSAUSTRALIA right?? But no it's not, because it's about Luke Mcalister on target for the Pacific Cup. I mean come on tonight is a very big night and I mean a very big night. I am proud that New Zealand passion is Rugby but last year we won the RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP!!!!! And we can prove that it wasn't a fluke by beating them once again. That is what should be on the front page!!! But instead it's on the THIRD PAGE - COME ON!!!

But any way sad news for the Kiwis -THREE people are injured. They are all key players. First off is ISAAC LUKE, he is out because he was suspended for a dangerous tackle in a recent League game,guess who else is out?? One of the key forwards JEREMY SMITH with an ankle injury. Also the loose foward Frank Pritchard is out with a neck injury.

If you read on PAGE 3 of the sports news you'll find out that Dene Halatau is now playing. Let's hope that the Kiwis will do us all proud!!! If we won the world Cup against Australia once then we can do it again.

GO THE MIGHTY KIWIS!!!!!!  Let's make the front page tomorrow with"THE KIWIS WITH A ANOTHER WIN!!!
This is Feki one of sports reporters for our daily school news network - PENN.
