Big move to GC creates ultimate dream for Ngāpuhi man

  • Ahitereiria

Ko Rìkona Andrews nō Ngāpuhi tētahi e whakaheke werawera ana ki te whai i te iti kahurangi i tērā taha o te moana tāpokapoka. Hei tàna, mei kore ake tana hūnuku ki Te One Koura, kua kore pea e ea ōna wawata, arā, kia whakatū pakihi ki reira.

Hei tā Andrews, “I tūwhera mātou te toa nei i te tau 2013, e toru tau inàianei.”

Hei tā Rikona i te whakatūnga mai o tōna toa, kāore tētahi i paku kiriweti ki a ia, engari he taunaki kē.

Hei tā Andrews, “Kāo he pai he kaha tātou o te hau kāinga i te rohe nei ngā tangata o te kāinga ki te whakanuia i a tātou katoa, mai te kāinga tīmata o mātou toa, aha rānei he aha ake tō mahi kaha te tauoko ngā tangata o konei.”

Mō tana hoa pakihi a Luke Auelua he mea nui hoki te tautoko i tō rāua hapori.

Ahakoa kua toru tau ngā tatau o tēnei toa e tūwhera ana ki te marea i te Tai Koura nei, arā noa atu ngā wawata me ngā tūamanko a Rīkona mō tōna pakihi nei.

“Kia piki ake te nama o ngā tāngata hāere mai ki konei, kia puare he toa anò hoki pea ki wāhi kē. Àe, rawe!”
