From Afternoons, 1:20 pm on 21 July 2022

The manu is right up there with roadies and BBQs as far as Kiwi summer traditions go, so the good people of Northland decided to honour it and crown a champion for the first time.

'The Manu Masters' took place in Russell on Saturday, where more than 30 contestants tried to impress a judging panel to take out cash prizes. Lead judge Kent Thwaites talks to Jesse about what makes a winning manu.
