Sean Fitzpatrick
Inducted in 2003
Sean Fitzpatrick played more tests for the All Blacks than anyone else, captained them more than anyone else.
Sporting Category:
  • Rugby Union
His 128 matches for New Zealand, including 92 tests, made him in his time the most durable and one of the most respected players in world rugby.

From his debut in 1986 until his retirement in 1997, Fitzpatrick appeared indestructible, always to the fore of New Zealand rugby's quest to remain the best in the world.

While he played alongside some great players for Auckland and New Zealand, it was no coincidence that Fitzpatrick and great eras were as one.

Norman Read

(1931 - 1994)

For older New Zealanders, the lasting image of the Melbourne Olympics in 1956 is of the smiling face of Norman Read as he strode into the Melbourne Cricket Ground to win the 50km walk, one of two gold medals won by New Zealanders in Melbourne.
