Shane is still in the building industry as per our last visit but him and his wife have a few interests under their Cotts Trustees Ltd company. A lot to get through so lets take a look at what they run.

Screenshot 2022 11 01 95901 PM

The first company is a self operated laundromat but I cant find a phsycical address.

AsoTV Retailers Ltd is the company he runs with former Warriors marketing manager Hamish Miller. They still have a store in Rosedale, Auckland. As Seen On TV sells exactly what the name suggests. Everything from the Fish Seeker, Does It All Drill Bits and Invictus Vacuum.

He also helps run Roar Material Ltd with Hamish Miller and they supply sports equipment to companies through sponsorship packages. They work with some national sporting bodies and supplies McDonald's franchise stores with rugby balls, netballs, soccer balls, cones and drink bottles.

Cant find anything online about them other than the business registry entry.

Cant find anything about 2Crush New Zealand Ltd other than its Director is Frank Endacott and its registered as a Land development or subdivision (excluding buildings construction).

Hot Property Painting Ltd has no online presence but according to records is run out of the same address as their construction business so Im guessing is a subsidary of theres that simply does the painting on their sites.

Endo Build Ltd is Shanes building company that we spoke about in his last update. Not sure if its been shut down now that he has another construction business.

Riverside Holdings Ltd is a residential property operation and development company he is a Director of again with his father Frank

He also helps run the family business Endacott Motors Group.

18902 1


Endacott Motor Group specialises in vehicles between $2,000 and $17,000, but do sell higher priced vehicles when required. At our dealership at 519 Moorhouse Avenue, we have over 200 well-presented vehicles. If we do not have what you are looking for on site, then we have access to over 1000 vehicles through our wholesaler.

Our business is family owned and operated. Frank and Shane Endacott are the leading directors and will go to any length to ensure your experience is a pleasurable one.

That finally brings us to his latest company Construction New Zealand.

We had absolutely nothing whatsoever with David Bailey last update and this time is no different. His name is far too common to get any reliable hits. Have searched countless Facebook profiles and dead end links but to no avail. The last known whereabouts are from his Wikipedia page.

In 2001 Bailey played for the Glenora Bears in the Bartercard Cup.

Bailey was then involved with the Ponsonby Ponies of the Auckland Rugby League.

If anyone has any ideas where we can look please let us know...

Iro was previously living in Arorangi, Cook Islands and listed as the Commissioner of Cook Islands Rugby League.

The Beast is still in Rarotonga and works with the Government on the Cook Island Marine Park (CIMP) Committee. Part of that is visiting schools and teaching kids the importance of protecting marine life.

Recently he was awarded a prestigious Seacology prize which honours exceptional achievement in preserving island environments and culture. Iro helped create the Marae Moana marine reserve which protects the Cook Islands exclusive economic zone from foreign fisheries. With over 1 million square kilometers of ocean it is the worlds largest marine reserve and comparable with the size of Mexico.

Former Kiwis league star Kevin Iro has won a prestigious Seacology prize which honours exceptional achievement in preserving island environments and culture.

Iro, who has Cook Islands whakapapa and lives there with his whānau, has been recognised for creating the largest multi-use marine park in the world, Marae Moana. It extends over the entire exclusive economic zone of the Cook Islands, an area of 1.9 million square kilometres, the Marae Moana website says.

Iro grew up in Auckland and says that from the age of 7 or 8 his whānau started going to the Cook Islands for the school holidays and he "fell in love with the place".

"I moved back with my family, I noticed the change," Iro told non-profit environmental organisation Conservation International.

"When I was young the lagoon was just vibrant. There were so many colours, all the coral was alive.

"As the years went by, I'd say to my family 'there's something wrong out there'."

Iro came up with the marine park concept about two or three years ago. He says the Pacific accounts for 60 per cent of the world's tuna catch and this is having a major impact.

"Our small fishermen, their catches over the last 20 years have gone from quite substantial catches to virtually none. The Cook Islands marine park can make those stocks grow."

With Marae Moana, the aim is to be inclusive and "bring in every person that has anything to do with the ocean," he says.

Conservation International has come on board as a key partner and scientists, local leaders and the community are all involved.

"We're looking at a zone approach, whether they be no-fishing zones, commercial fishing zones, zones for tourism activity."

Iro says they want to use the internet and social media in "a big way" and make it an "open source" marine park.

"People from around the world can play an interactive part in seeing where fishing vessels are fishing."

Iro has every belief Moana Marae will succeed.

"I'm an optimist, I'm positive it's going to work. I think the idea is going to spread through the Pacific," he says.

The Seacology prize ceremony honouring Iro will be held online in October.

Iro is also coaching his sons league team...

"There definitely has been a shift in culture since I played Rugby League at a professional level.

Club management should look for the type of footballer to build a better culture around. They must look for people with good leadership ability, good training ethic, and most of all good behaviour off the field. I am determined to ingrain this into Professional Sport Culture.”

In 2015 Ali Lauitiiti was playing his final season for Wakefield Trinity. The following year he would return home to the Warriors playing one more season with the reserve grade team before finally retiring from the sport.

These days Ali has his hands in a few gigs. He is working part time as an NZRL Ambassador & Wellbeing Support.

Rugby league legends Ali Lauiti'iti and Jerry Seuseu tell youth that 'it ain't weak to speak'​

Rugby league legends Jerry Seuseu and Ali Lauiti'iti are tackling mental health in young Māori and Pacific Islanders head-on.

The two ex-NRL stars are ambassadors for the New Zealand Rugby League Wellbeing Programme.

They travel the country talking at grassroots rugby league clubs to players, friends, coaches and anyone who wants to participate in the It Ain't Weak To Speak campaign.

Seuseu told the Herald when he was playing professional rugby league for the Warriors, Kiwis and in the UK for Wigan, asking for help to deal with mental health issues was frowned upon.

"We were basically told to harden up and do your best," Seuseu recalls.

"It wasn't very fashionable to talk about mental health and people had to deal with it quietly. Fortunately for Ali and myself, we had a good Christian upbringing and that certainly helped us in our careers.

"That's what it was like back then, but we have moved on and we encourage our young people to use their voices and be heard.

"Our statistics tell us mental health [challenges are] everywhere and our youth are suffering the most. It's no weakness to reach out if you are struggling and not in a good space."

Having hung up their playing boots a few years ago, Seuseu and Lauiti'iti want to give back to the community that supported them throughout their long and illustrious careers. They both still live in and around South Auckland.

Seuseu played 209 matches - 37 for Counties-Manukau (1995-1996), 132 for the Warriors (1997-2004) and 40 in the UK Super League for the Wigan Warriors (2005-2006). He also represented Samoa four times in 2000 and the Kiwis 11 times, from 2001-2004.

Lauiti'iti was one of the most gifted players to ever pull on a Warriors or New Zealand rugby league jersey, because of his athleticism and skills.

He was a 115-game Warrior from 1998-2003, played 200 games for UK Super League club Leeds from 2004-2011 and also for Wakefield Trinity in 94 matches from 2012-2015.

Seuseu said communities face their own unique dilemmas but youth issues are not dissimilar around the motu (nation).

"We are finding that wherever we go to speak with youth, each area has its own unique issues.

"Our team spoke in Invercargill and the group wanted to talk about alcohol and driving, because they had a tragedy a few weeks prior involving teenagers," Seuseu said.

"There was a group of 60 and all of them knew those involved and were trying to come to terms with the accident and make sense of their loss.

"We also spoke with a group from Manurewa and people told us they might be a difficult group. But we gave them the opportunity and they were real conversant on how they felt."

Seuseu said giving teenagers coping strategies and mechanisms was a big part of the programme, and it was rewarding work.

"We get a lot out of doing this as well," Seuseu said.

The NZRL and the Warriors are working alongside La Va, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) whose vision is to support whānau and communities for better health and wellbeing outcomes.

"In Auckland, the youth we speak to are more worried about their identity, social media and what is affecting them," Seuseu said.

"Sometimes the conversations with youth are awkward but they have to be had.

"Ali and I try to talk with youth in a safe and engaging way, sometimes we use our PI humour, and that always brings a laugh," Seuseu said.

Lauiti'iti said talking with youth about suicide was confronting but had to be discussed for the sake of our young people.

"We try to equip our youth with tools to deal with suicide, and although it is hard and confronting we have to speak about it," Lauiti'iti said.

"But it's also having the courage to step out and help out if you see one of your mates, or you, are not in the right space."

In Auckland, 80 per cent of league players are Māori or Pasifika. Outside of Tāmaki Makaurau, 80 per cent of rugby league players are Māori.

He also works as a youth mentor and community worker through his company he runs with his wife LTT Investments Limited.

Him and his wife also run a coffee cart at select events and it can be hired privately for functions.

Ali also helps Daniel Anderson out by helping to run training clinics for the Roosters development players that are based in NZ which is actually run by Brent Webb. Bit grainy cause I've had to enlarge it but heres a pic I took of the Roosters clinic from February 2020. Ali is far right and Webby is the guy running.

And finally the most recent venture that Ali and wife Janina have started is their own High-Performance Affiliate Marketers business.
7d2c2539 454d 4865 aebb 2e27f8de2dae


Freedom to live life on our terms​

A little bit about us is that we have been married for almost 20 years. We are blessed parents to 5 very active children. Both of us are of full Samoan heritage living in Papatoetoe, South Auckland.

Ali, a former professional athlete, retired from playing professional Rugby League at the end of 2016 after an illustrious and well-badged career. Ali then moved into Social Services, working with youth and is currently employed part-time by NZ Rugby League as part of the Wellbeing team. Ali also works as a Transitional mentor for the NRL.

I, Janina, more recently worked in Social Housing but was forced into redundancy due to the covid mandates at the end of March 2022. No payout and only four weeks' notice. Since being made redundant, Ali and I quickly realised it was a blessing in disguise. The family dynamic of being home full-time again was necessary for our young family.

We decided that Ali would continue working part-time, and I would be home full-time for our family.

As the weeks went by, we felt the money pinch and needed to increase our income streams. We were no longer making enough to meet our big family's needs.

We had not prepared ourselves enough for such an unexpected financial hit when I lost my job.

We were asset-rich and absolutely cash poor.

We quickly found ourselves broke by June 2022. We hate debt, so short-term loans were out of the picture.

We quickly sold off a rental home in July so we could breathe a little more and re-evaluate how we would move forward as a family.

Here we are, fast forward to September 2022. In our mid-40, 's trying something entirely new for us, and we are excited to share what we are jumping in on.

This new business venture is our third to try. We own a small property portfolio and a coffee cart and are now High-Performance Affiliate Marketers.

We understand that some things are worth the risk.

We want to live life raising our children and being present.

We watched our sister Molee start her Affiliate Marketing business from scratch for an entire year. We saw her smash serious goals, earn so much money and eradicate her and her husband's debt.

We could see that the money in her business was real.

Her work hours were according to the lifestyle she wanted to live, and she had loads of fun along the way.

She connected, encouraged and empowered others to do the same for themselves.

Molee levelled up in life in a way that we had never seen in her before. She was thriving in a new, positive and life-impacting way.

We lived a comfortable life before. Now that I was a stay-at-home mother again, I knew I needed to try something extra to bring in more money for our big family.

We wanted and always needed the freedom to live on our terms.

We refuse to be broke.

Our hearts desire to learn, earn and help our families, friends and, more importantly, our children to be able to do the same.

We all need Time freedom, Financial freedom and Family freedom.

We should be able to live our best lives with our families.

When forced into redundancy, I honestly cried to management on so many occasions pleading for them to give me any role in the organisation. They knew I was married with five children, and I also cared for my parents. They didn't care what it meant for me to lose my job, and they ultimately didn't care much about me.

I often wonder how many will be financially prepared if they find themselves out of a job within a month.

I regret crying and pleading for my job. Was I helping build the wealth of someone else? When now, I can make our family wealthy, and I can pour my heart and soul into my own business for our profits.

What better feeling?

To no longer rely on anyone else but ourselves.

To become self-sufficient.

So we started an online business leveraging a platform that takes all the confusing technical details out of the equation. The educational platform itself teaches us how to build our business.

We have partnered up with a company that has been around for 48yrs.

The compensation plan is unmatched. The income potential is uncapped, and there is an opportunity to make money automatically for life—Unreal FOR REAL.

It is a business model that ANYONE can follow regardless of background and education level.
The business model focuses on self-growth, personal excellence and how you can impact the world on a broader scale.

We are playing the long game to create the freedom to live life on our terms. We get to choose how we live our family life by helping ourselves and others.

We know our worth and will no longer be hidden and remain under someone else's authority, controlling what kind of money we can make. We decided we were going to try something new.

Because nothing changes when nothing changes right?

Suppose you're curious about what we are doing. Or if you feel a little overwhelmed trying to make ends meet these days.

Send us a message "SEEN", and we will personally reach out to you so you can see how this platform can give you more freedom to do the things you want.

1. Frank Watene post-rugby career has involved paintballing and St John’s Ambulance.

Former Halifax cult hero Watene still resides in the town, after retiring in 2011 following a four-year spell at the club.

He featured for Wakefield, Dewsbury (twice) and Castleford during a 12-year stint in the UK, and has clearly endeared to life in Yorkshire.

The former New Zealand Maori international’s post-playing career has been far more diverse, however. Having previously worked in an ice cream factory, as a support worker and as a Community Development Officer, he joined Delta Force Paintball as regional manager in 2014. He stayed there until 2018, in various job roles, becoming a Training Team Manager at St John’s Ambulance.

For all his efforts in training staff for the frontlines, we salute you Frank.

Frank is also a trustee at the Calderdale Community Trust which is the same place that held the Night with Marty event for Martin Moana #17.

In 2015 Odell was working for the Rockhampton Council in Queensland, Australia and also competing in body building contests.

He retired from professional body building in 2019 after longterm knee injuries ruled him out but not before wining multiple contests and smashing Australian records in several weight catergories over many years.

According to an article from the Canberra Raiders in 2018 Odell was still working in Rockhampton.

Forever Green: Where are they now? - Odell Manuel​

This week we catch up with our former forward Odell Manuel who played 19 matches for the club between 2001-2002.

What do you do for work now?
I'm just a glorified council worker now. Nothing special mate, I just work up in Rockhampton now as a truck driver, nothing special mate, but it pays the bills.

I just drive the trucks for the council, just a council worker. Nothing hard, bro.

Checked his Facebook recently and it looks like he has a job doing security with his wife. Not sure if its his new gig or moonlighting though while doing council work during the day.

The person who posted it to his wall hashtagged #securityshield so I had a search for Security Shield Queensland and found them on Facebook. Found pictures of Odell and his wife working.

A little zoom in on the background and found the hotel they bounce outside. The Strand Hotel in Yeppoon, Queensland which is a bar and bistro as well as a hotel.
