The pleas of a cricket-crazed teenager have netted new equipment for his school.

Eighteen-year-old Siupeli Aho was the catalyst for the popularity of cricket at St Paul's College, in Ponsonby, sport director Dave McDermott said.

The Te Atatu Peninsula teenager inspired the college to get cricket nets for the first time, McDermott said.

Members of the Black Caps are coming to play cricket against the students on November 12, and the $70,000 nets will be officially opened the next day.

A generous Old Boys community, the Queen St Cricket Club and the New Zealand Community Trust donated funds to pay for the three full length cricket nets, which will neighbour the school basketball court.

Aho, a year 13 prefect and a first 11 captain, helped kickstart the project.

"He's a very passionate cricket boy always in my ear about getting more equipment," McDermott said.

"From year nine, he's been walking around with a cricket bat in his hand all winter. He lives in those nets."

New Zealand cricketer Dion Nash, whose son Solomon attends St Paul's, is Aho's bowling coach.

"Siupeli is a fast bowler now," McDermott said. "I definitely wouldn't want to face him."

The sport director said there's a shortage of nets in central Auckland and the world class equipment will help the school continue growing the sport.

Traditionally known for its rugby league prowess, St Paul's College started to play cricket competitively in 2016.

The team won two of their three games, one against Macleans College and the other Mt Roskill Grammar School.

Mr Dermott said the competitive approach to cricket came about purely from the boys themselves.

"I think the team has really driven itself. They collected all their own fees. We set them a goal for fundraising, how much it would be to get new uniforms and they went out and collected it amongst themselves."

Since then he's seen the demand for cricket snowball.

Why not treat yourself to a bloke’s day out for a grooming WOF? Just be wary of the barbershop – between the bay rum oil, hot towels, banter, and leather chairs, you won’t want to leave!

Bevis, a resident at Ryman’s Anthony Wilding Village, recently received a gentleman’s makeover. The day began at the barbershop where Bevis and his barber Kohl shared plenty of laughs. Next up, a personal stylist helped Bevis select clothes he looked and felt great in. Being pampered isn’t the norm for Bevis but based on his smile, we’re confident he loved every minute.

The Choice is Yours.

In 1950, British researchers demonstrated a clear relationship between smoking and cancer and the evidence continued to mount. Today it is hardly contested. Yet only in very recent years has there been any serious sustained attempt to discourage the habit. Multi million dollar industry cares not how many it kills.

Research on cannabis smoking is nowhere as comprehensive but it is indisputable that cannabis smoke does contain many of the same toxins and irritants as tobacco smoke. Many users smoke both which makes research even more complex. Perhaps it will take another hundred years for the message to get through but if you choose to inhale smoke from any source, including soon to be legal cannabis, you are gambling with the prospects of a very miserable end. Whilst we perhaps should all mind our own business is a valid shout the results of the choice does affect other people. That is a problem. It should be noted too that vaping is beginning to show as equally dangerous with deaths from its use all ready being reported. No one can say they have not been warned these days. For people with enough resolve to leave these nasty things alone it won't matter what the law says. They will not use them but will need to avoid the exhaust fumes from those who do gamble. Ask the firemen about smoke! Their cancer rate is higher than the average. Do we need telling why?
