Customers who tasted the 'deliciously sweet' berry-tinged fruit during a trial in New Zealand and Singapore found it to be 'incredible', leading horticultural company, Zespri, claims.

NEW ZEALAND showed Ireland what it really means to be world No1 as they humiliated Joe Schmidt's side in Tokyo. England — their semi-final opponents — beware. Ireland were suffocated and strangled by the defending world champs and put in one of the most impressive performances in Rugby World Cup history.

All one can adequately conclude is what one feels too often at the end of an England series, particularly when the side are tourists:... … [Read more...] about England’s performance in New Zealand is an example of what happens when Test cricket is not taken seriously
