My family thoroughly enjoyed our Easter weekend excursion along the new Central waterfront promenade. What a shame that we were chased by three security officials who instructed my children that they were not allowed to ride their tricycles along the walkway.

After shaky start, Fijians hit top gear to flatten Taiwan

Perennial crowd favourites Fiji kicked off their campaign by blasting past Taiwan 33-0 in their opening match in pool E - but only after enduring a frustrating opening spell.

Fielding a squad without all their overseas-based players, coach Iliesa Tanivula probably didn't like what he saw in the first five minutes.

Outgunned HK to play for bowl

Hong Kong were relegated to the Bowl competition at the Air France Sevens in Paris yesterday when they lost both their preliminary group games to Italy and the New Zealand Barbarians.

The territory were beaten 35-14 by Italy in their first game and then later in the day were trounced 62-0 by the Kiwis, who topped the group with a 52-0 win over Italy.

Fijians rout HK Development side

The reasons why Fiji did not score 100 points yesterday against the Hong Kong Development team - they won only 92-3 - were twofold: centre Lawrence Little ran into one of his own men with the goal-line staring him in the face; and Fiji kicked for touch on three occasions when running the ball might have earned them a try.

Fearing obscurity

Your editorial on May 4 denouncing the 'irresponsible demagoguery' exhibited by the Maori politician Winston Peters, ignores the very human concerns at the basis of his polling.
