    All Black legend dies

    Wellington - Former All Black lock Richard "Tiny" White, regarded as New Zealand's finest rugby players in his position, has died aged 86.



    Hill's family says he had been ill for several weeks, but the nature of his illness was not specified.

    White played 30 matches, including 23 consecutive Tests for New Zealand between 1946 and 1957.

    He was a key member of the All Blacks forward pack that achieved victory over South Africa in a four-match series in New Zealand in 1956, their first-ever series win over the Springboks. He also played all five Tests on New Zealand's 1953-54 tour of Britain and France.
