    The semi finals have reached conclusion! Mount Roskill will take on Massey High School in the final of HSL on the 11th of June. Matt speaks with Ben Lenihan from NZESF (New Zealand eSports Federation) ahead of their AGM. The New Zealand eSports Federation are championing amateur gaming and organising leagues like HSL throughout NZ. They work to break down the barriers that traditional thinking creates around eSports and gaming which are holding us back from realising the potential benefits (which we discuss).
