It was not a phone call I wanted at the weekend. Sir Colin’s son rang me to tell me his Dad had passed away peacefully.
So in this issue we pay a tribute to Sir Colin Meads, a great New Zealander, a great man, and more importantly for me, I have lost a great mate.
We also break my own rules this week and share a give a little page for a rugby league club down in the Waikato that burnt to the ground and lost everything, and which unfortunately had no insurance. So if you have a spare dollar I'd love you to give a couple of bucks to them. I made a small donation last night to support them and they will be the guests of the club at this Sunday's home game. I also want to wish all the best to the All Blacks playing on Saturday.
Enjoy the rest of your week and let's share the love out there.
