Reaping rugby Tony Woodcock of Makarau played his 100th super rugby game for the Blues last weekend in their 41-17 win against the Hurri- canes. All his games have been for the Blues, who face the Chiefs in Hamilton on Saturday from 7.35pm. Top fundraiser The pre-season Vodafone Warriors versus Manly Sea Eagles match at North Harbour Stadium took $111,000 which will be given to the New Zealand Red Cross 2011 earthquake appeal. Stadium chief executive Craig Goodall says his trustees and manage- ment team were de- lighted with the result. ''Easier still was gaining the support from our suppliers and sponsors -- however, there was still a tremendous amount of behind the scenes work done to ensure the event's success.'' Red Cross collectors also raised a further $6500 on the day. ''Sir Peter Leitch certainly made this easier with his initial contribution and media contacts, prompting an additional $20,000 donation from John Guest with the Vodafone Warriors very quick to also come to the party,'' Mr Goodall says.

' -- Ofisa ''Junior'' Tonu'u It looks like 2011 will be a busy year for former All Black Ofisa Junior Tonu u. But the Waitakere City Rugby Club chair- man was happy to take time out to raise funds for the Christchurch earthquake appeal. The Massey resident was part of the Classic All Blacks team which took on the Classic Wallabies in a fundraiser match in Brisbane. It was a night where legends like Frank Bunce, Kees Meeuws, Christian Cullen, George Gregan and David Campese put on their boots once again. The Classic All Blacks won 58-20 but the more important result was the $500,000 raised. Tonu u, who took turns with Justin Marshall at halfback, says the event was amazing. Over 20,000 fans were at Ballymore stadium with the match selling out in only four days, he says. That is even more impressive when you remember the whole thing was planned in just 10 days. Although the game was played in a friendly atmosphere, Tonu u says the players still showed skill and a competitive will to win. Guys like Campese from the Wallabies, who is nearly 50 years old, still had some silky moves out there. Even I was applauding him. It s been a full year for Tonu u. He is running the second year of the club s gateway rugby programme to motivate west Auckland youth to play sport, and he will also be heavily involved in two major rugby events this year. The Trusts Stadium, where Waitakere City is based, is to be the train- ing venue of the All Blacks, England and Australia for the Rugby World Cup. The 41-year-old says the club has been work- ing with Trusts Stadium chief executive Brian Blake to make sure fans get a chance to see the three teams practise. The world cup will be on our back doorstep here and for those who can t afford to go to matches they can hope- fully come down and get autographs from the players, he says. Waitakere City will also be hosting the Par- liamentary Rugby World Cup in September. The event will see parliamentary teams from around the world taking part in friendly matches. Tonu u has been a guest player on the New Zealand parlia- mentary team since 1996. Go to www.nor-west news.co.nz to see high- lights of the Classic All Blacks v Classic Wallabies.
