Poll: Should Aayla be allowed to play?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.
The reason? She’s a girl. Aayla Toman, 13, has been told she’s not allowed to play in the u13 boys’ grade in Wellington’s Pacific Youth Cup because of her gender – something that led her club team, the u13 Petone Panthers, to play her ‘illegally’ all season.
New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.

announced tragedy

Alda from Khandallah

I posted this 116 days ago about the safety of our pet rabbit. Pancake is now dead, killed by this very same dog, according to workers who were on a roof close by. We are devastated by the loss of our beloved 5 year old Pancake. The workers also said that a neighbour came to see the scene, but did not inform us of anything (we could make have tried to resuscitate her. I don't know if the person who came was the owner of the dog who was let to wonder freely and is a true danger to small pets.
I want the owner to hear this: Having a dog comes with responsibility and respect for others. Don't have one if you are not capable of doing this.

Chiropractic is all about improving the connection between the brain and body, so our ability to adapt to stressors is as optimal as possible ⚡

The higher our adaptability, the easier we can respond to stressful situations, recover from illness + injury, grow, develop, and thrive! 🧠

Sometimes adaptability is also about checking kiddo's spines and nerve systems where THEY decide 😂
