Taste of eat-off victory sweet
Members of the Southland Stags competed in some friendly competitions with students at Southern Institute of Technology O Week yesterday.
The second day of O Week kicked off with the L&P Pavlova Eat Off.
Students raced to eat the Kiwi treat, complete with pineapple lumps on top, and finish a bottle of L&P.
Southland Stag Willis Halaholo failed to beat the SIT students in the competition.
Winner Danielle Walker received a 24-pack of L&P, which she said she would either share with her classmates or keep for a cocktail evening later in the week.
"I can't believe I won."
Students were able to make their own mussel patties to enter into a competition to find the tastiest patty.
The tug-of-war brought out the competitive spirit between the two Stags, with a triumph for Taylor Adams' team.
Fortunately there were no injuries during the tug-of-war contests but MC Kane Johnson told the crowd there were Southern Institute of Technology nursing students there just in case.
Stag Taylor Adams won the four-legged race with his team.
The SIT Talent Quest heats kick off today at noon, with finals on Friday.
