The All Blacks returned from a tour in 1957 to play, and lose 11- 9, against Canterbury.
The All Black No 8 in that game was Colin Meads. He’s put the jersey he wore up for auction on the Farming Show with the money from the winning bid going to the Canterbury earthquake appeal.
Jamie Mackay opened bidding at $1,000 yesterday and it had got up to $2,700 when the show finished at midday.
