Sir Pinetree

Colin Meads has decided to accept a knighthood, but he doesn’t want to be called Sir.

I think of my great friends and guys who I have played under like Sir Wilson Whineray and Sir Brian Lochore.”
“But they were perfect gentlemen while I was a bit rougher,” he said.

That reminds me of this quote:  

Linesman to Referee: “You’d better count the players. I think Meads might have eaten one.”

From Good As Gold, Being A New Zealander, selected by John Daley, published by Godwit 2002.
