Transform your outdoors An Archgola is the ideal way to transform your outdoor living area into a space which is enjoyable, elegant and functional all year round. Archgolas add grace, style, comfort and archi- tectural character to your home. Completely maintenance-free, they are used for shade areas, patios, walkways, car- ports, entrance ways, playground shelters and many other applications. Archgola frames are made from galvanised steel tubes produced in New Zealand and pow- der coated in your choice of colour. Powder coated sur- faces are highly resistant to chipping, scratching, fading and wearing. Super tough poly- carbonate sheeting forms the roof on Archgolas -- available in two profiles with a clear finish or a choice of tints. It provides 99.9 percent protection from UV rays and comes with a manufacturer's guaran- tee. Certified by structural engineers to withstand high winds, Archgolas carry a written warranty from both the manufac- turer and the installer. Paul Knight is the Archgola franchisee for South Auckland, cover- ing the territory from Mangere Bridge to Pukekawa. He has been in the building trade for over 25 years and knows exactly what's best for local conditions. Paul says, An Archgola can change the way you think about your home. You may find yourself entertaining more often; in many cases the pergola becomes the favourite part of the house.'' He and his team will finish most installation jobs in two days with minimal disturbance to you and the environ- ment. To make your Archgola even more ver- satile and useful, you can now have cafe curtains' around the sides -- trans- lucent curtains that pro- vide shelter walls around your outdoor area so it can be fully enjoyed all year round. They can be raised in summer and lowered whenever bad weather threatens. These are available in a choice of colours as well as with a mesh pattern for privacy. Free quotes are available, and Archgola offers finance options for your purchase. For all enquiries, phone is 0800 768-841. Brown gives green light to Eden Park league Memories: Former Kiwis prop Peter Brown back at Eden Park for the first time since he played in the 1988 Rugby League World Cup final against the Kangaroos. Photo: JASON OXENHAM By TUREI MACKEY Playing on the hallowed ground of Eden Park is exceptional for any sportsman. It's even rarer if you are a rugby league player. But Peter Brown has the distinc- tion of playing his code at the famous rugby union stadium. He was one of the starting front- rowers for the Kiwis in the 1988 Rugby League World Cup final against Australia, the only time league has been played at Eden Park. The 48-year-old will return on Saturday to watch the Kiwis take on Australia. The night will act as a Four Nations double-header with Eng- land playing Papua New Guinea before the transtasman clash. It's the first international event at the revamped venue. Brown hasn't been to a match at Eden Park since the 1988 world cup final. I don't really follow union or cricket so I basically had no reason to go there in the past,'' he says. But the stadium certainly captures your eye so hopefully there is a big crowd on the night.'' Brown is honest about the 25-12 loss to the Aussies in 1988. They kicked our butts but that wasn't unusual. We weren't on our game and I think the occasion got to some of the boys a bit.'' The Kiwis were seen as real con- tenders to Australia's crown in the late 80s but a raft of player changes brought an end to that dream. Around 1986 when I made the side there were guys like Mark Gra- ham, the Sorenson brothers and Olsen Filipaina. By 1987 they were starting to retire so we had a team of young guys like Gary Freeman, Mark Horo and the Iro brothers,'' he says. Brown hopes the modern-day Kiwis will level the score against the Kangaroos but knows it will be just as tough as it was in his day. We will be stronger in the forwards but Australia will be tough since they produce elite sides all the time.''
