-- There was a story in New Zealand on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson sending a message to paralyzed rugby player Set Tafua of Wellington. Tafua suffered a spinal injury in June and a number of sports stars in both Australia and New Zealand have spearheaded fund raising drives. Johnson is friends with Nic Fitsemanu of Wellington, who played rugby with the same team that Tafua is on and Johnson recorded a message that Tafua's drive to walk again is an inspiration to everyone around him.
