Former All Black fullback Fergie McCormick died on Tuesday, aged 78, after a battle with throat cancer.

The Canterbury stalwart made a record 222 appearances in his beloved red-and-black jersey between 1958 and 1975, scoring 1297 points.

He also played 16 tests for the All Blacks between 1965 and 1971, touring South Africa in 1970, before being dropped after a first-test loss against the 1971 British Lions.

Brendan Telfer talks with rugby commentator Keith Quinn on the life and career of the great Cantabrian Fergie McCormick.
