Rugby World Cup 2019: All Blacks to pay tribute to fallen legend Sir Brian Lochore

This is one elegant item.

New Zealand hooker Dane Coles says it’s important to honour the late Sir Brian Lochore as part of the build-up to Saturday night’s Bledisloe Cup clash with Australia in Perth.

NZ rugby is in mourning, after the death of Lochore from cancer at the age of 78 on Saturday.

Lochore is a legend of world rugby, captaining the All Blacks during his playing days, before coaching the side to the 1987 World Cup title.

Current All Blacks players are well versed on the significant role Lochore played for the sport in their country and they are keen to honour him this week.

“I think it’s important that we do have a space in this week that we do talk about it and maybe bring emotion into it, and recognise the man that he was, because he did a lot for a lot of people in NZ,” Coles said.
