About this object

Photograph; a large, black and white photograph depicting the 1949 New Zealand rugby team, at the time of their South African Tour. Amongst the members is Jack McNab, of Owaka.

Jack McNab (b. 1924), a flanker from the Owaka club, toured South Africa in 1949 with the All Blacks. He played in three tests against the South Africans that year and another three against the British Lions in 1950.

On the long tour of South Africa, when the journey to the republic was made by ship, he was given just one jersey, numbered 20 - each squad member was given a single jersey to wear and clean on the 24-match tour.

McNab was an Owaka stalwart, playing only for that club over his whole career. Jack passed away in May of 2009, aged 85.
