Eve of lockdown

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

How are you all preparing for lockdown?

As we all deal with this massive, life-saving disruption to our lives, spare a thought for Hamilton mum Sarah Chapman. She has five children at home - including a 10-week-old - and was busy collecting resources from school on Tuesday.

Murdoch - The All Black Who Never Returned

Card covers, 198 pages, excellent condition.

2018

(Can be posted for $4.50 extra)

The story of Keith Murdoch is the great unsolved mystery of world rugby. The All Black who was sent home from the tour of the British Isles in 1972 and who exiled himself to the vastness of the Australian outback remains a banner headline in rugby memories. It does so despite the passing of the years.

The basics of the story are well known: the strength of the man who scored the All Blacks' only try against Wales, then the celebrations that night that went so horribly wrong. Murdoch has appeared publicly a few times since but not said much and nothing at all of the events of that night, or how he felt then and later.

But now, the story can be told more fully than before through anecdotes and memories of teammates and colleagues and through the damning words of those who condemned him to his life on the run.
