CHAIRMAN’S ANNUAL REPORT Over the last year our Patron Sir Colin Meads and former President and Life Member Sir John Graham passed away. Their contribution to NZ, Rugby generally and specifically the Rugby Foundation have been immense and they are sorely missed. We also lost our VIPs John Kaye and Chris Moran, experienced 3 on-field deaths and the loss Life Member, Colin Gibbons’ wife Robyn. Our sincere condolences go to all the families. Full details and obituaries are set out in the annual report. During 2017 one more VIP was added to our ranks. Regretfully we continue to see an average of one or two new VIPs per annum. Our mission remains to support all VIPs on an ongoing basis but we continue to work for elimination of any such permanent injuries. During the year I was privileged to visit the International Rugby Injury Prevention Seminar in Cape Town. Whilst it highlighted that NZ and the UK are at the forefront of injury prevention and management, some of the other countries particularly those with low socio-economic issues and huge geographies face some extreme challenges. However, this is not a reason for NZ to sit on it’s laurels. For example, The RFU (England) has some serious innovations that we should be taking notice of. These include simple neck checks for young players through to major projects to analyse the stresses on the body both in computer simulation and ‘crash test’ models. The results of this research improve training in technique, position specific conditioning and, after proper analysis, recommendations on law changes are able to be developed where such a change will assist in eliminating serious injury. The innovation in Japan of techniques in corrective spinal surgery was also extremely interesting and worth further study by people with a lot more understanding of those issues than me. Whilst they face very different problems South Africa is way ahead of us in collecting data and then properly analysing it. England is also to the fore-front in this area. We need to step up. There are always areas for improvement, but the work of ACC and NZ Rugby in developing the enhancements to RugbySmart is superb. As always, the Foundation will continue to promote participation in and extension of this programme to ensure that our great

8

NEW ZEALAND RUGBY FOUNDATION INCORPORATED CC42547 ANNUAL REPORT 2017

game continues to be a contest but one that can be played in an environment where the inherent risks are as well managed as possible. As mentioned last year, and reinforced to me at least in the Cape Town conference, it is essential that we gather data on how injuries happen and properly record and analyse these. It is important to understand whether enhancements in conditioning, technique or improvement of the laws of the game have an impact on injury and ensure where possible improvements are made. We also need to look, I believe, at the incidence of spinal cord injuries in the 18 – 20-year-old age group where young players are trying to emulate their highly conditioned professional rugby counterparts. Good data analysis of how injuries are incurred, Tackler? Tackled? etc. and the type of injury will help our understanding. I mentioned last year the head injury is a real challenge. We have now started a register to ensure we build a history of individuals affected so that we can track outcomes and look at the support needed in the future. However, this needs further focus and has not progressed as far as I would have hoped. The long-term impacts of concussive incidents from head trauma remains something we need a lot more understanding around. We struggle with understanding when how and what support to provide. This needs to be a priority project for 2018 /19. I have asked Lisa to budget for a larger attendance in the next conference in 2019. The feedback is extremely important in my view as we strive to eliminate catastrophic injuries in our great game. The Treasurer has commented on our financial position in his report. I am pleased we have achieved the milestone of $5.0m of investment funds. Looking at the graphs of income in this report, the contribution to our funds from active well managed investment is becoming more significant and important. The target of $10m in ‘2015 dollars’ to be achieved over the next few years I believe is an imperative. Our development of Bequest programme and Major Gifting Programmes are continuing although at a slower pace than I had hoped.


My personal thanks to Capt. Graham McNally who is a driver behind the Long Lunch in Dubai and to Gary Chapman who allowed us to share in the funds raised from that event over that last four years. In 2017 we received $82K from this source. The personal efforts of those involved to make that event such a success and the significant monies they have raised for the Rugby Foundation are very much appreciated and the result superb. Whilst it is disappointing to see the reduction in funding from Gaming Trusts the support of those who do assist us is very, very much appreciated. Sponsors, without you we simply could not do what we do. Your support as always is very much appreciated both in financial but also in human terms. Thank you. The support of NZ Rugby and its ongoing support and financial assistance is also critical. A special thank you to the Board and Management of NZ Rugby. As I have said before the essence of a mature organisation is how it supports those within its ranks who experience adversity. Our game has a lot to be proud of in the way we deal with injury and continue to review and improve those responses. The transparency with which we all deal with these issues is important and we are the envy in that regard of many other

Attitude Awards

sports in NZ. I also represent the Foundation on the NZ Spinal Trust. The Trust continues its essential support for those impacted by Spinal Cord Injury. It, amongst its many other services, publishes two excellent guides, ‘Back on Track’ for spinal cord injuries and ‘Head Space’ for the management of serious post head trauma issues. Please visit The New Zealand Spinal Trust’s website for further information. www.nzst.org.nz Finally, the work of the Trustees and Management during the year has been much appreciated. Their efforts are often above and beyond expectation. I would particularly like to thank President Andy Leslie for his sage advice and also the support of all of the other Trustees. I would also like to convey a profound thankyou to Lisa, Ben, Gwendoline and Angela.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT The highs and lows of 2017 have been extreme. We honour the passing of our special ones and refer you to the Tributes section later in the report. It has been a very unusual year and frankly, dreadful on the field. Three deaths in the month of June. One, a freak head accident, and two heart attacks that happened playing the game we all love, which may have happened anywhere. 19 year old Daniel Baldwin died of a brain injury. Bevan Moody (22) and Geoff Toni (52) suffered heart attacks, we work with these families on a case by case basis. A poignant and real reminder of why the Rugby Foundation exists. The passing of our Rangatira Sir DJ and Sir Colin within three weeks of each other was a very sad time and an opportunity to reflect on our two Rangatira and their enormous commitment and contributions to the organisation. It motivates us to set our strategic direction for the coming years. On Saturday 1 July 2017 Braden Coates was doing what thousands of people do every weekend, enjoying a club game with his mates. He became VIP #105. The incident in which he experienced his injury was seemingly innocuous. He was tackled and was getting back to his feet, when a concurrent tackle resulted in two other players falling on top of him. His level of injury is C5/6. An incredibly positive 25-year-old farmer, he is re-shaping his life and doing extremely well in his rehabilitation. Our thoughts go out to Braden and his family for what they endured last year. It really is challenging on every level. Brett, Rachel. Brittany, Jade, Amber and his partner Hayley and his grandparents Jim and Dale were constantly at his side surrounding him with love and courage. All of their lives, also changed in a heartbeat, the Rugby Foundation is here to support them too. We would also like to acknolwdge the Rugby Clubs who supported Braden. We worked with them to deliver a fundraiser for Braden, these six Clubs and the local Waikato community and Waikato Rugby Union were marvellous and true testament to the spirit of what rugby is. We acknowledge the Auckland Rehabiltation Spinal Unit and their amazing staff. Also, Braden’s ACC Case Manager, Sharon Steward. We worked as a team to ensure “joined-up”coordinated support for Braden. Our VIP #12 John Mafile’o originally injured in 1979 slipped on 11 November. He is now C5/6 and in a wheelchair, where previously he had been a walker. We salute him and his positive attitude and that of his beautiful family as he readjusts to his new life. We supported 18 Near Miss Incidents, three of whom we are still working with. The Near Miss incidents kept us busy as they occurred literally every weekend in June and July. The dreaded feeling when the phone rings on the weekend from a Club, Provincial Union or New Zealand Rugby – and you know they are not calling for a yarn.

NEW ZEALAND RUGBY FOUNDATION INCORPORATED CC42547 ANNUAL REPORT 2017

Off the field we enjoyed many highs with the spectacle of the British and Irsih Lions tour and hosting our VIPs. We love hosting our VIPs and their familes which we did nationally, thanks to All Blacks Hospitality We are very pleased to report a positive year financially. Treasurer Mark Peters clarifies in more detail in his report. From the outset our gratitude goes to so many incredibly generous organisations and individuals who have granted and gifted to the Rugby Foundation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our individual supporters for their financial contributions by way of auction purchase, pledge and the general spirit of giving. You make such a difference. As background, here is the history of our funding: The success of the Rugby Foundation was enhanced by the generous donation of $1 million by Goodman Fielder Watties Ltd in 1986. The agreement stated that this be retained as a capital sum. In 2000 New Zealand Rugby and the Rugby Foundation signed a funding agreement whereby New Zealand Rugby agreed to provide funding of $1 million to the Rugby Foundation, subject to the money being retained as a capital sum so that the Rugby Foundation only spends income earned from investing it. Under the Board’s careful stewardship, this base has grown to a capital fund of circa $ 5 million Our policy is to “inflation-proof” this fund as much as possible, to safeguard ongoing investment income and always be able to meet the needs of our VIPs. We derive income from diverse income streams, and we constantly need to maintain this as the different streams peak and trough. It is a highly competitive terrain as one of 27,719 charities in New Zealand. Our income is derived from Events, Donors and Membership, Bequests, Gaming/ Community Trust applications, and the annual NZR donation of $400,000.00. This capital fund may look like a lot of money, but it will not go very far without careful management. Hence, we are undertaking scoping and actuarial work to define our targets for the next five / ten years. Our current goal is $10M in 2015 dollars. Future proofing is vital to secure the organisation into the years ahead: 1. We know we will need to support rugby’s less fortunate players. 2. We know that our VIPs live longer due to medical advancements. 3. We know that historically our numbers increase by one or two each year. 4. We know we need to strive for financial independence to be sustainable.


We were once again gifted a generous amount from the Long Lunch in Dubai which is supported by Emirates Airlines which listed the Rugby Foundation as one of the official charities. Sincere thanks to Graham McNally and Gary Chapman. The Freemason’s Foundation were very generous. We are deeply grateful for their support. Their values of camaraderie and community support resonates with the Rugby Foundation; people caring about others. J A Russell granted us a healthy amount which allowed us to cover the costs of hosting many VIPs in Auckland over the British and Irish Lions Tour. This allowed us to really focus on the project. We hosted over two weekends; Test 1 and 3. This was wrapped around our 30th anniversary luncheon which produced strong results. To our Commercial Manager, Ben Sturmfels, well done on a sterling effort! around the luncheon and overall project. Ben was ably supported by Muir Templeton, VIP # 8. Thank you for your hours and hours of work around planning the BILT. Many long hours were spent checking off lists, logistics, budgets and ticketing manifesto’s. We acknowledge Angela Davies our accountant, and Sport Auckland Office Manager Tania Vaealiki for their detailed double checking a myriad of detail. Our thanks also to Anna Mardon, Kate Fisken and Adam Gilshnan who took leave from their own places of work to volunteer for us over both the 1st and 3rd Tests. They assisted all ground transfers and the Easy Rider Bus transfers, thanks Dirk and Larry. Our grateful thaks to All Black Hospitality, to Warren Barclay and the team, thank you ! You delivered a massive year and our event was certainly extra special because of the magnitude of the overall hospitality related to the tour. Also to the NZ Barbarians RFC for nominating us as their chaity in membership fees and their dinner in July. We are deeply grateful for your support Around many other parts of New Zealand we have been part of fundraising events hosted by the Cantabrians in Christchurch, the Centurions in Wellington, Freemasons Foundation and Massey RFC in Auckland, Harlequins in Hamilton and Morrinsville College, the 1st XV rallied together and presented us with a cheque. At all occasions, we received wonderful gestures of generosity. External contractual arrangements around the BILT 2017 tour to NZ saw Lion Breweries generously extend us beverage supply at our keystone fundraising luncheon, we are so appreciative for that support and also the understanding and continued long-term support of partners Dominion Breweries and Yealands Family Wines.

We also acknowledge the continued support of our corporate partners Panasonic, NZ Rugby World, Claymore Law, and adidas. Thank you so much. Our sincere thanks to the Infinity Foundation, North and South Trust, Pelorus Trust, Four Winds, Constellation Communities Trust Ltd, Pub Charity and Grassroots for their incredible support. As with all organisations, our control of income and expenditure is paramount. Whilst we exist to support our VIPs, we are committed to prudent management. JB Were have done an outstanding job of growing our capital base. Thank you Tom Phillips and Bruce Roberston. We have close working relationships with a number of partners and were pleased to be able to assist NZ Wheel Chair Rugby in securing live coverage with Sky TV for the Zonal Tournament which occurred in August. We also supported the NZ Spinal Trust in their Annual Appeal month in September. These collaborative relationships are so important to all of us. Special acknowledgment also to the Harlequins, Brian King and Bernie Murphy who have / are assisting us with a home maintenance project in Hamilton. We could not do this without your support, again true to the spirit of rugby ! In conclusion, our thanks to New Zealand Rugby. We acknowledge their many dedicated staff members who assist us in a myriad of ways. Their annual funding the management of the All Player Insurance Policy is vital. There are many people in NZR dedicated to research and making the game as safe as possible. The prevention programmes, RugbySmart. ACC have made a $7m commitment to making the game as safe as possible. Perspective is vital. Whists one accident is too many, of 187 new SCI (Spinal cord injuries) in 2016, only two were due to Rugby. We are working with ACC to ascertain the 2017 data in this context and also in relation to TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) We have been fortunate to get to know our VIPs’ families: wives, partners and children as well as carers and friends, and salute their support networks. Thank you VIPs, you create a great focus for us as an organisiation. Finally, I thank my colleagues, Ben Sturmfels, Gwendoline Rewcastle and Angela Davies, for their teamwork, humour and energy. Our Board and Chairman give us many many hours of time and advice for which we, as management are very grateful. Lisa Kingi-Bon CEO

TREASURER’S REPORT On the face of it, an overall surplus of $395k for the year to December 2017 ($231k in 2016) looks very good - and it is. However, we do need to bear in mind that around $279k of that surplus was growth in the value of the Foundation’s investment portfolio managed by JB Were - and of course that is an excellent performance. But we all know that there is some volatility in markets which could reverse some of those gains - being the nature of an investment portfolio. Because we have a long-term investment strategy any highs and lows are smoothed out and our overall growth has been excellent overall. So, in reviewing 2017 we really must look at the cash portion of that surplus which was $116k so again quite satisfactory but a little tighter than we would like given the strategy to inflation proof our capital fund. We need to do this to ensure certainty of available capital to maintain the grants needs of our VIPs. We were able to meet needs of our VIPs this year totalling $423k ($358k in 2016) so that was excellent and remains the priority of our existence. Income streams - other than investment income and our very gratefully received grant from NZ Rugby - are becoming harder to maintain. We were therefore very grateful to receive very generous donations from the Freemason’s

12

NEW ZEALAND RUGBY FOUNDATION INCORPORATED CC42547 ANNUAL REPORT 2017

Foundation and from the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Long Lunch. Also, the outcome of this year’s Auckland Luncheon was excellent. Other sponsors contributions were also very much appreciated. Gaming Trust and other fundraising activities are a challenge as is increasing membership donations. The Rugby Foundation is looking at various initiatives to secure new income streams for future years to ensure its activities can be at the very least maintained. The Rugby Foundation’s financial position remains strong with equity having passed $5 million and our investment fund with JB Were also increasing nicely to around $4.8 million plus cash deposits with them pushing the total over the $5 million. Finally, my sincere thanks to Lisa, Ben, Gwen, and our accountant Angela and JB Were investment advisers Bruce and Tom who all make the Treasurer’s job so much easier. Also, thanks to Chair Gerard and my fellow Directors for their work and dedication towards the aims of the Foundation Mark Peters FCA Treasurer

New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated Statement of Accounting Policies “How did we do our accounting?� For the year ended 31 December 2017

Basis of Preparation* New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated has elected to apply PBE SFR-A (NFP) Public Benefit Entity Simple Format Reporting - Accrual (Not-For-Profit) on the basis that it does not have public accountability and has total annual expenses of equal to or less than $2,000,000. All transactions in the Performance Report are reported using the accrual basis of accounting. The Performance Report is prepared under the assumption that the entity will continue to operate in the foreseeable future. Goods and Services Tax (GST) All amounts are recorded exclusive of GST, except for Debtors and Creditors which are stated inclusive of GST. Income Tax New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated is wholly exempt from New Zealand income tax having fully complied with all statutory conditions for these exemptions. Bank Accounts and Cash Bank accounts and cash in the Statement of Cash Flows comprise cash balances and bank balances (including short term deposits) with original maturities of 90 days or less. Revenue Revenue received from donations is accounted for on a cash basis because the general nature of this income is not certain until it is received. Grant revenue is recognised when the conditions attached to the revenue has been complied with. Where there are unfulfilled conditions attaching to that grant, the amount relating to the unfulfilled condition is recognised as a liability and released to income as the conditions are fulfilled. Revenue received from professional fundraisers is accounted for on a net basis as the Foundation does not incur nor is liable for the expenditure. Sponsorship in Kind The Foundation receives donated items for auction and events, but the value is not certain until the sale, therefore the revenue is recognised when the item is sold. Accounts Receivable Accounts Receivable are stated at their estimated realisable value. Investments The fair value of the share investments has been determined by reference to their quotes at reporting date. Share investments are publicly traded on the New Zealand and overseas markets. Gains and losses are recorded via investment revaluation. Fixed Interest Investments are carried at cost.

New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated Statement of Accounting Policies “How did we do our accounting?” For the year ended 31 December 2017

Functional and Presentational Currency All balances within these financial statements are stated in New Zealand dollars ($). Amounts are rounded to the nearest dollar. Inventory Inventory is stated at the lower of cost, determined on a “first-in-first-out” basis, and net realisable value. Fixed Assets All owned items of Furniture and Fittings are initially recorded at cost, and depreciated using Diminishing Value as outlined below: - Office Furniture and Equipment 11.4% - 60% - Website 60% Where an item of furniture or equipment is disposed of, the gain or loss is recognised in the Statement of Financial Performance and is calculated as the difference between the net sale price and the carrying value of the asset. Foreign Exchange Movements Transactions in foreign currencies are translated to NZD at the settlement rate. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies in the Statement of Financial Position are translated to NZD at the foreign exchange rate ruling at that date. Foreign exchange differences arising on their translation are recognised in the Statement of Financial Performance. Changes in Accounting Policies* There have been no changes in accounting policies. Policies have been applied on a consistent basis with those of the previous reporting period.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT To the Board of Management of New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated

Auckland 1010 PO Box 158 Auckland 1140 New Zealand Tel +64 9 303 4586 Fax +64 9 309 1198 www.crowehorwath.co.nz

Opinion We have audited the performance report of New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated on pages 16 to 31, which comprises the entity information, the statement of service performance, the statement of financial performance and statement of cash flows for the year ended 31 December 2017, the statement of financial position as at 31 December 2017, and the statement of accounting policies and other explanatory information. In our opinion: a) the reported outcomes and outputs, and quantification of the outputs to the extent practicable, in the statement of service performance are suitable; and b) the performance report on pages 16 to 31 presents fairly, in all material respects: the entity information for the year then ended; the service performance for the year then ended; and the financial position of New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated as at 31 December 2017, and its financial performance, and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Public Benefit Entity Simple Format Reporting – Accrual (Not-ForProfit). Basis for Opinion We conducted our audit of the statement of financial performance, statement of financial position, statement of cash flows, statement of accounting policies and notes to the performance report in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (New Zealand) (ISAs (NZ)), and of the entity information and statement of service performance in accordance with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (New Zealand) ISAE (NZ) 3000. Our responsibilities under these standards are further described in the Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Performance Report section of our report. We are independent of the New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated in accordance with Professional and Ethical Standard 1 (Revised) Code of Ethics for Assurance Practitioners issued by the New Zealand Auditing and Assurance Standards Board, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Other than in our capacity as auditor we have no relationship with, or interests in, the New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated.

AUDITOR’S REPORT cont

Information other than the financial statements and auditor’s report Those charged with governance are responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the annual report on pages 7 to 14, but does not include the financial statements and our auditor’s report thereon. Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and we do not express any form of audit opinion or assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Responsibilities of the Board of Management for the Performance Report Those charged with governance are responsible on behalf of the New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated for: (a) Identifying outcomes and outputs, and quantifying the outputs to the extent practicable, that are relevant, reliable, comparable and understandable, to report in the statement of service performance; (b) The preparation and fair presentation of the performance report, which comprises: the entity information; the statement of service performance; and the statement of financial performance, statement of financial position, statement of cash flows, statement of accounting policies and notes to the performance report in accordance with Public Benefit Entity Simple Format Reporting – Accrual (Not-For-Profit) issued in New Zealand by the New Zealand Accounting Standards Board; and (c) For such internal control as those charged with governance determine is necessary to enable the preparation of the performance report that is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the performance report, those charged with governance are responsible for assessing the New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless those charged with governance either intend to liquidate the New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so. Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Performance Report Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the performance report as a whole is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs (NZ) and ISAE (NZ) 3000 will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material Page 33 NEW ZEALAND RUGBY FOUNDATION INCORPORATED CC42547 ANNUAL REPORT 2017

AUDITOR’S REPORT cont

if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the decisions of users taken on the basis of this performance report. As part of an audit in accordance with ISAs (NZ) and ISAE (NZ) 3000, we exercise professional judgement and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also: Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the performance report, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion, including performing procedures to obtain evidence about and evaluating whether the reported outcomes and outputs and quantification of the outputs to the extent practicable, are relevant, reliable, comparable and understandable. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control. Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management. Conclude on the appropriateness of the use of the going concern basis of accounting by those charged with governance and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the performance report or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However, future events or conditions may cause the entity to cease to continue as a going concern. Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the performance report, including the disclosures, and whether the performance report represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.

WE DEDICATE THIS YEAR TO OUR SPECIAL ONES WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY DURING THE YEAR Sir David John Graham KNZM, CBE, ED 9 January 1935 – 2 August 2017 The breadth of influence he had on New Zealand may only be realised now he has passed’ was the general rhetoric from the media following the death of Sir John (DJ) Graham. DJ had been New Zealand Rugby Foundation President from 1988 until 2014. A caring heart, a determined mind; a man of unwavering principles. Listing DJ’s areas of influence risks leaving some out, but include former All Black captain, Auckland Grammar Headmaster, NZ Cricket team manager, NZRFU president and Auckland University Chancellor. Sir John passed away on 2 August surrounded by his family after a long-fought battle. His funeral was as to be expected, exactly an hour in duration, traditional and simple. Auckland has never seen a more resounding haka. All 2500 current students Auckland Grammar School sent him off outside the Holy Trinity in Parnell.

Sir Colin Earl Meads KNZM, MBE 3 June 1936 – 20 August 2017 No one quite represented the public face of the New Zealand Rugby Foundation like our Patron Sir Colin Meads. On August 20, the rugby world united to pay their respects to passing of the man everyone simply knew as Pinetree. “Many thousands of words have been written and will still be written about this great man, simply a great mate, we are so sad to lose him, he fought a long hard fight and now he would expect us to celebrate,“ said Andy Leslie, Rugby Foundation President. Sir Colin always went out of his way to spend time with the VIPs (Very Injured Players). At events, he could always be found yarning away with them, their families and care-givers. He always made each individual feel like the most important person in the room. When we were fundraising, he would always ask who the sponsors and donors were and then in his special way, make those supporters know they are valued and appreciated. As one of our VIPs said not long ago – ‘I bet Colin will never know how long his shadow is, he was a hero to thousands of us young fellas. We all aspired to be him.’ On 19 June, Sir Colin Meads’ statue was unveiled in Te Kuiti. It was great that he could be there to see how much he was loved and revered. What a remarkable event for a truly remarkable New Zealander! It was a very emotional day, filled with love. Sir Colin passed away on Saturday 20 August. He fought to the end and as his son, Glynn, said – he went quickly and peacefully. His send-off was beautiful. His family were so loving and generous in their sharing of him. “Kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane, ka tangi hotuhotu nga manu. The great totara tree from the forest of Tane has fallen and the birds cry with its passing.” NEW ZEALAND RUGBY FOUNDATION INCORPORATED CC42547 ANNUAL REPORT 2017

VIP # 31 John Kaye 26 July 1965 – 26 February 2017 John was in his first year at Otago Universiaty and his ambition was to complete a degree in Surveying, then join the NZ Navy as an Officer in the Hydrographic Branch. He was also a Rating in the Naval Reserve and was awarded the Chief of Naval Staff’s prize for the Best All-round Rating in 1984. On 18 August 1984 John dislocated his cervical spine at C4/5 level. He was 19. His injury was exacerbated by transportation from Dunedin to the Burwood Spinal Unitwhere his condition deteriorated to C1/2 as he lost his ability to breathe spontaneously. (Thankfully the emergency systems in place now are world leading, the ethos now is “injury management is injury prevention.”) Three weeks later he was returned to Dunedin Hospital, having being given life expectanacy of 18/24 months. where he “lived” for two and half years in ICU. John’s family moved him home in December 1986. Vincent, his Dad gave away his career to take care of John. John was ventilator dependent and learnt to neck breathe for 3/5 hours per day, using neck muscles to lift his chest. In 1987 John returned to University to complete his degree in Computer Science. In 1998 he completed his BA degree. In 1999 he was capped and went on to achieve PG Dips Arts. In September 2008, John commenced a Master’s Degree in Classics (Elwyn studied with him to enable him to attend lectures). It took 8 / 9 years for John to speak with a “normal” voice having had a valve inserted. This remarkable man was cared for 24/7 by his parents, Vince and Elwyn. We salute them and his sisters for their dedication to him.

Bevan Moody (aged 22) 8 August 1994 – 25 May 2017 On Saturday 20 May, playing for his club Waitohi he suffered cardiac arrest. Much loved partner to Kendra, Dad to Maddy (and new babe Jeremiah), son of Wendy and Craig, Garry and Suzie, brother to Hayley, Taylah and Justin. We would like to acknowledge the wonderful Tasman rugby community, Tonga Taumoefolau who was and continues to be great support to the famly.

Geoff Toni (aged 52) 12 May 1965 – 2 June 2017 On Saturday 1 June, playing for his club Hamilton Marist, Geoff suffered cardiac arrest. Much loved husband of Stephanie and Dad to Casey, Nyssa, Rylan, Isla and Kenia. We would like to acknowledge the very strong rugby community in the Waikato who supported Steph and the family at this very sad time.

VIP # 3 Chris Moran 16 September 1951 – 28 November 2017 Chris was VIP #3, he was injured in Waihi playing for Waihi Athletic Club on 12/08/1973. He was 21 at the time. He became a tetraplegic C5/6. As his injury occurred pre-ACC he had no choice other than to get on with it and find a way to support himself. He had previously been a carpenter so he decided to go to Christchurch Polytech and train as an architectural draftsman. Six years later he finished his course gaining NZ Certificate of Architecture. He found it challenging to “get employed”. So, Chris being Chris said, “bugger that, I’ll open my own practice”. During the 70s/80s he participated in disabled sport and gained a gold medal and three silvers at the FESPIC Games in Australia. He also represented NZ at the Paraplegic Olympics in Arnhem, Holland in 1980. Chris met Sharon in 1975. Sharon was Chris’s carer. She was his everything! They went on to have two sons Damian and Tristan. Later on, (late 2000’s) Chris experienced some huge health battles. In 2007 he had a heart valve replacement in Wellington. During the operation he received a blow to his sacral area which developed into a pressure sore. Then in transferring back to Blenheim he received a blow from the side because the sling they had him in was too big. This caused a bruise on his spleen, developing into an abscess. This was undetected for quite a while and developed into a nasty infection. He was then transferred back to Wellington to have the abscess drained and treated. He was then flown to Burwood to have the pressure sore treated. During that flight his lungs collapsed from the infection. He wound up in Christchurch Public ICU for two weeks. So, Wellington hospital for a month, Blenheim Wairau hospital for a month, and then Burwood and Christchurch Public. He shared with me that he’d been told four times, that he was going to die ! But he didn’t give up! In 2009 he had a routine pacemaker check-up, whilst he was under, he nearly died. Prior to this he was independent, worked 12 hours a day, ran his own business, the health issues resulted in him not being able to do 90% of the things that he used to be able to prior his first heart issue. It was a massive effort for him and Sharon to come to Auckland for the 1st Lions test, and to the 30th anniversary celebration lunch. Such fun and as always they partied to the wee hours. He touched so many people’s lives and was always a great ambassador for the younger VIPs.

Daniel Baldwin 20 November 1997 – 17 May 2017 Playing for his Club Wellington Rugby Football Union Inc injured on 13 May. Much loved son on Len and Eva, twin brother to Stefan and big brother to Markus. The Rugby Foundation acknowledge his wonderful family and all involved in the Wellington rugby community who supported them at this very sad time.
