Ahead of the All Blacks v France Eden Park test on Saturday 9th June, rugby was the focus of the latest Lexus of North Shore Lunch. Former All Black Sir Michael Jones captivated the full ballroom at The Spencer on Byron Hotel as he regaled the audience with tales of his early years and shared stories from his illustrious rugby career. He was introduced at the North Harbour Club event by fellow former All Black Ian Jones, who acted as event MC. A panel of rugby experts discussed the upcoming test series, before an auction - including signed All Blacks and France team jerseys - a raffle and closing words from North Harbour Club President Aidan Bennett. The Takapuna fundraiser was held to help towards the Club's annual AIMES Awards programme, which rewards young Shore people for excellence across various fields.
