Legend uses rugby to put smiles on Christchurch faces

Many of you will remember Simon Hill, former coach of the girls, who returned to New Zealand a couple of years ago and now lives in Christchurch, scene of last week's massive earthquake.

Fortunately the news is that Simon and his family are okay, but more than that Simon is not sitting back just thinking about his own problems. Yesterday he organised an afternoon of rugby for his community at a local park - Parklands Reserve - which seems to be about the size of Legends Lane (if rather flatter!).

Incredibly 1500 people turned up! So Simon is going to organise another event, at a similar venue a couple of miles away, tomorrow. What is is achieving? Well, as he says "the smiles on those kids faces will keep you going for the week - trust me"
