Jesse Martin



In 1998 Jesse Martin sailed on a yacht called the Lion Heart because he wanted to circumnavigate the whole world to prove to everyone that he can achieve his goal that he had dreamed since the age of 14. 
When there was a storm the wind howled and waves crashed into the gunnels it was an horrible day for him. He went through very physical and mental challenges. At times he was also so lonely his mind was wandering, like when he said he would turn off the radio then he forgot so he turned on the radio over and over again. Every day he had to stay on his boat in the same place with a little room for 11 MONTHS!!!!
I think that Jesse Martin wanted to circumnavigate the world because he wanted to show everyone they can do anything if they have determination and perseverance.

The Beast!



Do you know the big Tongan and KIWI winger for the New Zealand Warriors, He has a shiny gold tooth and curly hair, do you have a clue?Well his name is MANU VATUVeI He is one of the best wingers in the whole world can you belive it.... Almost every game he plays he always gets easy corner tries. And I have a picture of it check it out. Things I like about Manu Vatuvei is his powerful legs,strong body and his very big jumps in the air. I think if the Warriors didn't have Manu they would of had been in 14th place on the ladder do you think? Manu Vatuvei has been playing for the Warriors for maybe 5,6 years




Manu Vatuvei's worst game was against the Parramata Eels long ago.On tvnz and told every body.And last week round 23 2010 he got an hat-trick against the New castle Knights.

NRL BIG HITS








NRL big hits is one of my favorite things in National Rugby League like tries and brawls!! Everytime I go on the Computer I go on Youtube and tipe in “here comes the boom NRL big hits” and it shows you very exciting videos mostly I like Sonny Bill and Chris Sandows because Sonny Bills left and right shoulder and Chris Sandows hit against Roosters when Issac Luke booms the ball up into Shuan Kenny dowell once he caught it Chris Sandows hit him right on the ground. When I watch the videos Sonny Bill always hits the Gold Coast TITANS player Luke Bailey!!! and they were huge!! Also Ukula U’atai puts his right shoulder into the Eels player Hindmarsh giving him an injury to his jaw.

Maritime Museum




Mighty Mariners is our new topic for this term (term 3) so far we went to Maritime Museum .

We traveled on a public bus,the ride was really long,really boring and really hot!! The most boring bit was when we had to get off the bus because all the boys at the back were relaxed and had sore legs (they were really lazy!) We walked over the crossings the
old man named Salty Sam he was very mean! Salty Sam is a gruff and grumpy Captain on board. “Don’t touch!!” Salty Sam said bellowing orders while taking us through the guided tour around the Maritime Museum and there was lots of fancy and old stuff there

We traveled on a public bus,the ride was really long,really boring and really hot!! The most boring bit was when we had to get off the bus because all the boys at the back were relaxed and had sore legs (they were really lazy!) We walked over the crossings the took off our bags in a plain room then we meet an old man named Salty Sam he was very mean! Salty Sam is a gruff and grumpy Captain on board. “Don’t touch!!” Salty Sam said bellowing orders while taking us through the guided tour around the Maritime Museum There was lots of fancy and old stuff there

In the middle of our tour we went through the immigrant ship cabin, it was so dark and dingy with bunks. (It was a replica of another ship) After Salty Sam finished we did a count down from five down to zero and a cannon shot a cannon ball out into the sky. How Amazing! The last thing was the Movie. We were just about to walk in when suddenly…..WOW automatic doors! We hadn't even got in and it was already exciting!!! The movie began and it looked like some people were doing a fare well dance to all these people on an island.

Obviously my favorite part in this was gong on the FERRY to Devonport!!!!! because the Ted-Ashby (the ship we were supposed to go on) had something wrong with it. But first we needed to wait and wait and wait til Waata, Crusader, Darius, Kingston, Gabriel and I met a very kind man called Peter. He was into many sports as well as NRL, National Rugby League!
Finally we went on the FERRY!!!!

Warriors Vs Titans


















W
arriors vs Titans was an exhausting game with all the excitement going around in the fans head. The Voda
fone Warriors were winning then losing to the Gold Coast Titans 20 points - 28. At home I yelling at home on the chair that one of the Titans players high tackled a Warriors players and the crowd was booing but the ref didn't care how useless.When James Maloney (the goal kicker) got the second conversion I was cheering because he finally got it. After the game we went by the Titans locker rooms and waited for about 30 minutes to the Titans came and were signing my sisters singlet and towel. Then the rest of the Titans were coming out and we giving signatures. Even though I like the Titans I will always like the Warriors!!! Clinton Toopi (he is a former Warrior back in the days a try scorer!) and Now he play,s for the Titans what a shame why did he leave.After the game the next day Gabriel told me that he caught the ball and his brother booted it down the field I have never done that. . The End!!
