Tough les­son learned

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/ NEWS -

‘‘Get me out of this armpit.’’

That’s what we imag­ine the school­boy in this pic­ture is think­ing.

Mur­ray Tami­hana looks less than im­pressed to be head­locked against the barely clad man’s chest.

A few of our Face­book fol­low­ers seemed to re­mem­ber this day in 2000.

Kaidazmis Ngatai said the man with the fierce look and the mus­cu­lar body was his old form teacher at Porirua Col­lege, Mr Wil­liams.

‘‘ He was train­ing for world strong­man and body­build­ing champs . . . Saw him at the Sev­ens this year and he’s still a tank,’’ he said.

Two of the girls on the left, Kyler Parai and Para Solomon, were iden­ti­fied.

The third is still un­known.

The old school yard: Mur­ray Tami­hana finds him­self in a head­lock from his teacher, Mr Wil­liams. Kyler Parai and Para Solomon look on.
