An absolute legend of Nelson Cricket who played 8 Tests & 6 ODIs for NZ [Blackcaps]; represented CD [Central Stags] in 67 first-class matches & 31 one-dayers in the 70s & 80s, Jock was also a mainstay of one of Nelson's great Hawke Cup eras, the 14-match tenure that spanned 1979 to 1983 - among many other fine achievements in his career. Rest in peace, Jock."
