Brian Lochore


Brian Lochore in 1971, the year of his final test as an All Black. Lochore won distinction as a player and administrator at school, club, provincial and national level.

Colin Meads believed that at the peak of his career between 1966 and 1969 Lochore was 'everything I would want in a number 8'. Furthermore Meads believed that the self-effacing Lochore was as effective in his captaincy as the highly acclaimed Wilson Whineray.
