Kua puta te aaki a te poumua Opango o mua a Billy Bush me kaha ngā iwi Māori te whakatu he kura hakinakina mo te hunga tamariki Māori.

Mo ngā tau rua tekau kua hipa e hapai ana te tohunga kaiwhutuporo te whakapakari i ngā kaiwhutuporo o apōpō me tona whakapono koinei tētahi huarahi tika.

Na te kaiako o mua o te kapa Opango Māori nā Matt Te Pou a Mataatua Sports Trust i whakaara hei whakakaha i ngā reanga o roto mai i te rohe o Te Waiariki i roto i ngā tumomo hakinakina.

Ahakoa e whakapono ana a Bush kei te ngawari te tiaki i te reanga tamariki, engari ka taiohi ana ka uaua ake.

Ka whakahaere a Mataatua Sports Trust i a rātou hotaka mō te kore utu, heoi ano ko nga taumahatanga, ko te whakarahi i te puna whakaako.
