Cribb and Na­u­fahu to get wild in town

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Rural Day -

Feild­ing lo­cal in­ter­net sen­sa­tion, Wil­liam (Wai­irua) Cribb and Game

of Thrones star Joe Na­u­fahu are com­ing to Feild­ing’s Wild Wild West Ru­ral Day.

Joe, played the role of Khal Moro, head of the Dothraki tribe war­riors in the in­ter­na­tional block­buster Game of Thrones, one of the most watched tele­vi­sion se­ries in 170 coun­tries, with a cult fol­low­ing world­wide.

Wil­liam is a hot so­cial me­dia star boost­ing morale with his own brand of hu­mour. His wicked say­ings and quirky dance moves are be­ing copied by fol­low­ers all over the globe.

To­gether they’ll be mix­ing it up at Ru­ral Day on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 13.

Wil­liam will no-doubt bust out his moves in his trade­mark cy­clops glasses and get on his ‘Tuck in Fri’.

They’ll be at the Farm­ers’ Mar­ket for a cook off that’ll be sure to bring a laugh.

With over 50,000 fol­low­ers on Face­book, In­sta­gram and Snapchat, Wil­liam is the hottest so­cial me­dia star in New Zealand and has hit over a mil­lion views for his TVNZ in­ter­view.

Us­ing just his phone, Wil­liam cre­ates a ton of fun with whanau, friends and fol­low­ers while boost­ing morale and pump­ing a lit­tle zest into peo­ple’s lives.

The proudly born-and-bred boy from friendly Feild­ing was snapped up by the Govern­ment for their edgy cam­paign #FFSVote.

The cam­paign, For Fu­ture’s Sake Vote, tar­geted young vot­ers to en­rol and vote to improve the poor sta­tis­tics of the 2014 elec­tion where only half of young Maori be­tween 18 and 24 voted.

He’s also hooked up with ‘Got a Trade’ who are work­ing hard to en­gage with as many youth in New Zealand as pos­si­ble, and en­cour­ag­ing them to try a trade.

Some of our big­gest sport stars are bust­ing out Wil­liam Wai­irua’s moves on the field and on line. Our sevens, NRL teams and All Blacks, have been snapped do­ing his sig­na­ture moves.

Joe was a pro­fes­sional rugby player who lined up for the Can­ter­bury Cru­saders and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive in New Zealand’s un­der 19s and 21s teams, be­fore

an in­ter­na­tional move to play for Le­ices­ter Tigers in Eng­land, and Glas­gow War­riors in Scot­land.

A knee in­jury brought his sport­ing ca­reer to an end and his ca­reer move into act­ing started.

The tough and phys­i­cally fit Joe has fea­tured in both movies and TV, in­clud­ing The Mar­ket, Go Girls and The Kick.

He played Lis­cus in the TV se­ries Spar­ta­cus and starred in the fea­ture film drama The Last Saint along­side Scar­let Jo­hans­son as Po­lice Com­man­der Johns in Ghost in the Shell.

His lat­est TV role has just ended with the se­ries School of Train­ing, a fit­ness com­pe­ti­tion show like no other, where the win­ner lands a job at Joe’s gym.

Joe played him­self in the Maori Tele­vi­sion re­al­ity show. It was based around the style of ex­er­cise prac­tised at the gym busi­ness he has owned since 2010 called Ludus Mag­nus School of Train­ing.

Track ‘em down at the Wild Wild West day and if you don’t know al­ready what the ‘Tuck in Fri’ is, be sure to ask Wil­liam Wai­irua all about it.
