MUNZ tries to ruin Breakers fans fun


The Maritime Union has had another PR disaster. They almost wrecked the fun of supporters of the Breakers.

Luckily there are some responsible cargo handlers in the rest of the country.

 A shipment of the bangers destined for the Breakers’ virtually sold out basketball game at Vector Arena on Friday night has been held up in Wellington thanks to the Auckland port dispute.

The Breakers play the Townsville Crocs at Vector Arena on Friday night in the first of the ANBL finals.

But KiwiRail has pulled out the stops to get them on a train today in time for the game and they are now on their way to Auckland.

Breakers media manager Andrew Dewhurst says it’s good to know the team has fans in Wellington, who are doing their best to see the thunder sticks are hauled up the line today.

He says if the container didn’t get loaded on to that train today, the thunder sticks wouldn’t arrive in Auckland in time.

“Home advantage, we’ve got 9,500 people coming but it’s a bit of a disaster, we’ve had to put out not an SOS but and SOTS, save our thunder sticks.”

Mr Dewhurst says it’s very unfortunate the thunder sticks have been caught up in industrial action.
