Alan (76) was an All Black and Marlborough "Red Devils" Ranfurly Shield hero. Described as "a powerhouse No 8 or lock" he played 64 games for the All Blacks, including 10 tests. He also captained the team three times. He was a key member of the 1973 Red Devils side who infamously beat Canterbury 13-6 for the Ranfurly Shield. Alan moved to South Africa shortly after his second All Blacks tour in 1976 and had recently been battling bowel cancer. RIP Alan.
