Brian Lochore - Selector

Sir Brian Lochore is one of New Zealand rugby’s most respected individuals. He represented New Zealand in the black jersey on 68 occasions, including 25 Tests. He was All Blacks captain in 1966 and went on to lead the team in 18 Tests, losing in only three of those games - all in South Africa in 1970. Sir Brian returned to the All Blacks management team in 2004 at the personal request of new coach Graham Henry. Lochore started coaching with Wairarapa Bush in 1980 and took the second division side to first division status within two seasons. He was first made an All Blacks selector in 1983. He became national coach in 1985 and two years later led the All Blacks to Rugby World Cup triumph. In 1995, he was the All Blacks World Cup campaign manager and was instrumental in player negotiations when rugby turned professional after that tournament. Since then he has served on the sports-funding body the Hillary Commission (appointed Chairman in 1999) and was knighted in 1999.
