    They had it all in the first round of the playoffs with upsets, sweeps, seventh games, fighting, suspension, triumph and failure. There was never a boring moment. With the NHL quarter finals done and dusted, we can now look forward to the conference semi-finals.

  • The Kills Concert Review

    With so many quality acts gracing our shores at present, it would be hard to see every band or artist that you want to see.  I am so happy to have seen the indie rock duo the Kills play at Auckland's Transmission room with the excellent up and coming band Bionic Pixie.

  • What Does Rugby World Cup 2011 Mean To You?

    It's been a long time since the Rugby World Cup was first hosted by New Zealand & Australia back in 1987. With the tournament being just over 2 & a half years away. What does NZ need to do to make the event a complete success worldwide?

  • Bloody Idiots

    Something needs to change with the way the government punishes drunk drivers in New Zealand.  The Law needs to get tougher. Don't you think there needs to be a better way to put repeat offenders off the roads?
