Former All Black loses longtime battle with cancer

Former All Blacks No 8 Gary Seear is being remembered as a kind and courageous man who didn’t know how to give up.

Seear lost his battle with myeloma in the early hours of Thursday morning in Christchurch. He was 65.

Seear, a lean and lanky forward who started his career at lock before moving to the back of the scrum, played 12 tests and 22 matches for the All Blacks between 1976 and 1979.
