Kind of anticipated someone would point out his father was still alive but thought you guys would know I knew. No matter. It's very likely he will pass in the coming months especially considering the published prognosis. I hope he survives long enough to fulfill his desire to see his boy play.His Dad is still alive for the record. He's never seen him play a Test match live, but is hoping to be well enough to make it to the NZ test in a couple of weeks in Christchurch to watch him play.
