New Zealand 56 Papua New Guinea 10: Williams Dazzles With Hat-trick As Kiwis Rack Up 10 Tries Against Brave Kumuls

Teaukura Moetau/Getty Images WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - The attacking trio of Shane Smeltz, Chris Wood and Marco Rojas has been recalled as New Zealand attempts to increase its firepower for the first leg of a World Cup intercontinental qualifier against Mexico on Nov. 13.

The other great challenge for the visitors will be that bugbear of all non-Asian teams in the subcontinent, a problem that is magnified in Sri Lanka. Ajantha Mendis excels against batsmen who have not played him, and view publisher site this New Zealand line-up is packed with fresh meat. Sachithra Senanayake possesses fewer variations, but nevertheless, requires decoding, and even Dilshan's offspin has grown increasingly menacing in recent series. Form guide (last five completed matches, most recent first) Sri Lanka: WWLWW New Zealand: LLLLW In the spotlight Last time Sri Lanka played in Hambantota, in two Twenty20s, Nuwan Kulasekara used the breeze to move the ball appreciably in to the right-handers.

Searle refuted allegations that no action had been taken because one of the boys is an officer's son. The other is said to be the son of a Hollywood actor, according to local press reports.

Star attraction: Sonny Bill Williams scored a hat-trick for New Zealand against Papua New Guinea Give him a hand: Williams, right, celebrates his first try with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck Leuluai had missed the Kiwis' opening wins over Samoa and France with a groin injury and it looks as if his World Cup could now be over. The Kiwis will also be anxiously awaiting the outcome of a match-review panel after prop Ben Matulino on report for an alleged cannonball tackle. It was all too easy for the Kiwis from the moment centre Bryson Goodwin touched down a slide-rule kick from stand-in captain Kieran Foran on two minutes while right winger Roger Tuivasa-Sheck enhanced his growing reputation with a brace of early tries. The 20-year-old Sydney Roosters winger juggled here. with the ball after Foran's high kick before forcing his way over the corner and then demonstrated his dazzling footwork to go in for his second. Easy does it: Williams scores the second of his tries against Papua New Guinea Williams stretched out of a three-man tackle to score his first World Cup try - his first for the Kiwis since 2006 - on 14 minutes and smashed his way through the Kumuls' flimsy defence 12 minutes later to double his tally. The powerful second rower unselfishly put substitute Frank-Paul Nu'uausala over for a try before taking Johnson's pass to complete his hat-trick 30 seconds before the interval. Apart from a weaving run from full-back David Mead, the Kumuls-supporting South Stand had little to cheer in the first half and the biggest roar came when Johnson struck the woodwork with his easiest kick of the night to lose his 100 per cent record.

The company said the resulting drop in revenue will hurt its ability to fund its share of the fast broadband roll-out and may put it in default with its bankers. Adams has ordered an independent assessment of Choruss ability to fulfill its obligations. Once that review is in, the government will webpage determine its response which may include over-ruling the regulators decision, she said. We think consumers benefit the most when there are the right incentives for people to build the most innovative, leading replacement technology, Adams said. Has the Commerce Commission ended up setting copper prices so low that we cant afford to build replacement technology? The government would expect Chorus to make its own adjustments and there may be scope to change the contract with the government to make it more viable, she said.

The 31-year-old warmed up on his return against Japan last weekend and http://whitneymcsy.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/carrie-underwood-dishes-on-vegan-diet-cardio-workouts/ is ready to hit the heights once again this Saturday. With Jean-Marc Doussain waiting on the bench, Tales is under pressure to impress as the Castres man once again takes steps in international blue, lined up against formidable opposition.
