Former All Blacks No 8 Hugh Burry, 82, died earlier this week.
Burry, who was born in Christchurch and attended Christ's College before representing Canterbury in the 1950s and 1960s, played 11 tour games for the All Blacks in 1960.
He scored eight tries for the All Blacks, including a brace against a Rhodesian XV in Kitwe.
After retiring Burry became deeply involved in sports medicine and for a lengthy period was chairman of the New Zealand Rugby Union's medical advisory committee.
