E toru wiki kei te toe tae noa ki te tīmatanga o te whakataetae ANZ Championship, ā, nō te rangi nei whakarewa ai te kapa Mystics tā rātou rautaki tau tākaro, i mua i tā rātou tukinga tuatahi a tēra marama. Apiti atu, e whakanuia ana anō hoki a Catherine Latu, kua panoni tana ingoa ki a Catherine Tuivaiti, tērā i mārena i ngā rangi whakangā.

He rīngi hou, he ingoa hou hoki ta te kaikuru Mystics.

Menemene katoa ana a Catherine Tuivaiti, i tū tana mārena i ngā wiki e rua kua taha ake nei.

“It’s a little like it always has been, we’ve spoken a lot and we’ve been together for 11 years. Obviously some ups and downs, because who doesn’t have those, but it kind of feels the same, because we always talked about how we didn’t want it to change us. And we just go on in life as one person” hei tā, Tuivaiti.

I mārena te kaitākaro rua tekau mā iwa tau te pakeke i tana hoa rangatira, ia Jim Tuivaiti.

“It was incredible and I don’t know if it was because I was so anal about everything, because I needed to do everything myself and make sure I had a hand in all the plans. Either way it worked out perfectly,” hei tā, Tuivaiti.

E ai ki tana hoa takoro a Kayla Cullen, “It was absolutely amazing but I think Catherine brought her own flavour to it, she had lip-synced battles and it was really funny and creative."

Engari kua hoki mai tēnei uri o Ngāpuhi me te whakanui i te taha i tana kapa mo te whakarewanga o te tau tākaro Mystics ki Sky City.

“There are definitely nerves but I think it’s good because we’re not getting too complacent,” hei tā Tuivaiti.

He tau tākaro ANZ tuatahi tēnei ma Megan Craig, ā, he maha ngā whēako e akongia ana e tēnei kanohi hou.

“I’m so excited, especially because the anticipation is bubbling in us now. Having this launch, it gives us that extra boost and motivation,” hei tā Craig.

A tera marama ki Tamaki Makaurau, ka tākaro tuatahi ngā Mystics ki te kapa Steel.
