Former All Black Terry Lineen has died, aged 84.
The Auckland midfielder played 35 matches for New Zealand between 1957-60, including 12 test matches.
A family member confirmed the death to Newshub.
His time with New Zealand included tours in Australia and Japan, while he was the leading performer in the 1959 British & Irish Lions series, playing the first three tests at second-five and the fourth at centre.
At just 24, he was forced into retirement by a shoulder injury and went on to coach Auckland Marist lower-grade teams.
In his later years, he battled through bowel, prostate and blood cancer.
Auckland-born son Sean represented Scotland between 1898-92 and was part of the famous team that won the Grand Slam in 1990.
Sean is currently the head coach of Scotland's U20 side and has previously worked with the women's national team.
