If the All Blacks win the final, they will get a $NZ100,000 ($77,550) win bonus per player. What did the 1987 All Blacks victors get for beating France in the final? John Kirwan yesterday recalled: ”They gave us $50 to spend in the bar after we won. Outstanding. God, I was so happy. That 50 bucks went a looooong way.” Also Kirwan was back at work at his father’s butcher shop first thing the following Monday morning.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
