Tours: 1926-27 tour of Great Britain
West Coast forward Jack Wright played one Test on the controversy-stained 1926-27 tour of Great Britain.
Bluff-born Wright received the call-up to the New Zealand squad after representing West Coast and South Island in 1926.
He played six matches on the ill-fated trip – including a second-row start in the Test loss to Wales – but was among the seven players disqualified for life by the NZRL as the tour was plagued by disputes between players and management, strikes and general tumult.
Wright died just nine years after the tourists returned, aged 33. The NZRL posthumously reinstated Wright in 1962.
