Adrasteia

In Greek mythology, Adrasteia was a Cretan nymph, daughter of Melisseus, charged by Rhea with nurturing the infant Zeus in secret, to protect him from his father Cronus. Adrastea may be interchangeable with Cybele, a goddess associated with childbirth; the Greeks cultivated a system of patron gods who served specific human needs, conditions or desires to whom one would give praise or tribute for success in certain arenas such as childbirth. Both the early 3rd-century BC poet Callimachus, the mid 3rd-century BC poet Apollonius of Rhodes, name Adrasteia as a nurse of the infant Zeus. According to Callimachus, along with the ash-tree nymphs, the Meliae, laid Zeus "to rest in a cradle of gold", fed him with honeycomb, the milk of the goat Amaltheia. Apollonius of Rhodes, describes a wondrous toy ball which Adrasteia gave the child Zeus, when she was his nurse in the "Idean cave". According to Apollodorus and Ida were daughters of Melisseus, who nursed Zeus, feeding him on the milk of Amalthea. Hyginus says that Adrasteia, along with her sisters Ida and Amalthea, were daughters of Oceanus, or that according to "others" they were Zeus's nurses, "the ones that are called Dodonian Nymphys".

Adrasteia was an epithet of a primordial goddess of the archaic period. Her name appears as a-da-ra-te-ja in Mycenaean Pylos; the epithet is derived by some writers from Adrastus, said to have built the first sanctuary of Nemesis on the river Asopus, by others from the Greek verb διδράσκειν, according to which it would signify the goddess whom none can escape. Adrasteia was an epithet applied to Rhea herself, to Cybele, to Ananke, as her daughter; as with Adrasteia, these four were associated with the dispensation of rewards and punishments. Adrasteia was the name of a mountain goddess, worshipped in hellenised Phrygia derived from a local Anatolian mountain goddess, her name is found in inscriptions in Greece from around 400 BC as a defender of the righteous. In The Dialogue of the Sea-Gods, Poseidon remarks to a Nereid that Adrasteia is a great deal stronger than Nephele, unable to prevent the fall of her daughter Helle from the ram of the Golden Fleece.

Joe Warbrick

Joseph Astbury Warbrick was a Māori rugby union player who represented New Zealand on their 1884 tour to Australia and captained the 1888–89 New Zealand Native football team that embarked on a 107-match tour of New Zealand and the British Isles. Born in Rotorua, Warbrick played club rugby for Auckland side Ponsonby while boarding at St Stephen's Native School. In 1877, he was selected to play fullback for Auckland Provincial Clubs as a 15-year-old, making him the youngest person to play first-class rugby in New Zealand, he played for Auckland against the visiting New South Wales team, the first overseas side to tour the country, in 1882. Two years he was selected for the first New Zealand representative team, playing as a three-quarter, appeared in seven of the side's eight matches on their tour of New South Wales. In 1888, Warbrick conceived of, led the funded New Zealand Native team; the squad, which included four of Warbrick's brothers, was envisaged to contain only Māori players, but included several New Zealand-born and foreign-born Europeans.

Although the team played 107 matches, including 74 in the British Isles, Warbrick took part in only 21 matches due to injury. The tour, the first from the Southern Hemisphere to visit Britain, remains the longest in rugby's history. In 2008, Warbrick and the Natives were inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame. Warbrick retired from rugby after returning from the tour, with the exception of an appearance for Auckland in 1894, went on to work as a farmer and tourist guide in the Bay of Plenty. In 1903, he was killed along with several others by an eruption of the Waimangu Geyser. Joseph Warbrick was born in the third of five children, his father, Abraham Warbrick, was from England, while his mother, Nga Karauna Paerau, was Māori and the daughter of a Ngāti Rangitihi chief. After Joe Warbrick's mother died, his father had seven more children. Four of his brothers – Alfred, Arthur and Billy – went on to tour with Joe as part of the 1888–89 New Zealand Native football team. With his family still based in the Bay of Plenty, Joe Warbrick was sent to board at St Stephen's Native School in the Bombay Hills, where he started playing rugby union.

While living in Bombay in 1877, he started playing club rugby with Ponsonby in Auckland though the club was based well north of Bombay. Warbrick played well enough for Ponsonby to earn selection for Auckland Provincial Clubs that year despite being only 15 years old. Playing at fullback for them against Otago, he became the youngest person to play first-class rugby in New Zealand – a record he still holds as of 2017. By 1878 Warbrick was employed as a public servant; the work required him to relocate and he moved throughout the North Island for the remainder of his rugby career. By 1879 he was living in Wellington, represented the provincial team three times that season, he played three further matches for Wellington in 1880, including one against his old province of Auckland. The 1880 match, the first in Auckland for Wellington, was won by the visitors 4–0. Warbrick was renowned for his drop-kicking, his goal in the match was the only score; the Australian New South Wales colonial team became the first overseas rugby side to tour New Zealand in 1882 and played seven matches throughout the country.

By this point Warbrick was back in Auckland, but this time playing for the North Shore club, he again won selection for the provincial side. He appeared in both of Auckland's matches against the New South Welshmen: 7–0 and 18–4 victories over the tourists. Warwick remained in Auckland the following year when he toured with the province again, playing in away matches against Wellington and Otago. In 1884 a team of New Zealanders, organised by the Canterbury player and administrator William Millton, Dunedin businessman Samuel Sleigh, was selected to tour New South Wales; this is now regarded as the first New Zealand representative rugby side. Warbrick was included in a squad, selected from throughout the country; the squad's 19 players were expected to assemble in Wellington before disembarking for Sydney on 21 May, however Warbrick missed his ship from Auckland and so travelled to Sydney alone. Millton was elected captain, Sleigh managed the team; the side won all eight including the three games against New South Wales.

Warbrick appeared in seven scored three drop goals. He played at both fullback and three-quarter, was noted for his good ball handling and speed, as well as his ability to drop kick. After returning from tour, Warbrick moved to Napier, in 1885 represented Hawke's Bay provincially, including captaining them against Poverty Bay. By 1886 he was back playing for Auckland, that year captained them in their wins over both Wellington, New South Wales – who were again touring the country, he returned to Hawke's Bay for the 1887 season, played for them against Wellington, Poverty Bay, Canterbury. Warbrick had returned to Wellington by the 1888 season; the first British Isles side toured New Zealand and Australia in 1888. The side was organised, without the sanction or prohibition of England's
