ColinMeadsAPAA ANNUAL LUNCHEON will commence at Noon and end at 2PM, September 12th


THE VENUE: The Guineas Room, Ellerslie Convention Centre, Greenlane, Auckland.



Colin Meads was, deservedly, named Player of the Century at the NZRFU Awards dinner in 1999 and few would argue with his selection. “Pinetree” Meads remains something of a cult figure. A Colin Meads club still exists, with the members at their meetings wearing No. 5 jerseys, drinking 5oz beers and reading from “Colin Meads All Black”.

Table(s) of 10 are  $900.00 and Single Tickets are $95.00
