IT'S ALL BLACKS TIME!
It’s all about the boys in black this month as they take on Australia in the Bledisloe Cup, while the Netball World Cup is finally here. SKY Sport has a dedicated netball channel broadcasting every game throughout the tournament. Go the Silver Ferns! It’s a family affair with Valerie Adams in the IAAF World Champs and her “little” brother Steven in the FIBA Oceania Champs, while the Auckland Darts Masters brings some big names to New Zealand – trust me, it’s addictive viewing!
For a dose of celestial sparkle, the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards is LIVE at the same time as the US, and it has a star-studded guest list. Take a trip around the country as Travel Channel’s Xtreme Waterparks whisks us to the longest water slide in New Zealand, and local production Smashed Palace comes to the BOX. Over on Discovery Channel, Andrew Ettingshausen explores commercial fishing in Saltwater Heroes.
You will feel the love with The Lion King hitting your screens on SKY Movies Disney, while a must-see for me will be Jaws on the When Animals Attack POP-UP – the movie that changed swimming forever!
Head to page 170 if you fancy whipping up Louise Cake, or some fantastic “forgotten” cookies – just turn off the oven, put the cookies in, go to bed, and in the morning you have a tray of moreish treats.
I’m lucky enough to have booked myself a mini-break to Hawaii. I can’t wait for some sun, sea, and a sizeable spot of shopping – it’s long overdue!
Next month we reach fever pitch with the Rugby World Cup! Until then, wrap up and enjoy all the wonderful entertainment coming your way.
