What an amazing person George Nepia was. He is truly a legend in not only New Zealand but every rugby playing nation.

I am doing a Power Point Presentation about koro George Nepia's life. I hope to honour his memory. I hope I can do justice to his memory as I am not the best of speakers. I feel overwhelmed actually but excited too, as I want to get it right. I got 74% for my assignment about a famous Maori Leader, I chose to write about my koro. I was hoping for higher marks lol but I am happy with my effort.

George Nepia was my beloved kuia, Georgina Pukewhinau Nepia Clay's first cousin, they were very close. (like brother and sister). My kuia always spoke about koro George.

Unfortunately, I did not have the privilege of meeting koro George Nepia.

What an extremely fantastic human being koro George Nepia was. I am so proud to be a descendant of this great man. He was so talented in his chosen sport of international rugby and league. He was such a humble man in his wairua and very spiritual. I loved his autobiography, I George Nepia. Fantastic reading.

@Miriama: there is a low-quality version available on NZ On Screen. Simply switch the the toggle at the bottom right of the player from 'high' to 'low' and push play. Nepia is also featured onsite in the rare footage from the All Blacks Invincibles Tour:

And his whanau are interviewed in the Legends of the All Blacks excerpt:

Let us know if you still have trouble viewing the clips ... enjoy!

The young rugby players should learn about George. A history lesson for all of us. I enjoyed viewing this.
