True story about JK.
He made a lot of money running shearing gangs as well as his sheep farm, in the days when farmers made money from sheep...way back last century.
He was a stalwart of the local rugby club (no league near Wellsford)
One of his best players was due to get married the day of a big game, but it was an away game. They organised the wedding before the draw.
So the dude had no way of getting from the showers to his wedding on time.
Now for you city slickers, an away game from Wellsford could have been anywhere from Pouto to Mangawhai. Mangawhai was not a long drive, maybe 30 minutes, but Pouto the home of the famous Southern Club was way further.
No problem, JK organised a helicopter to collect him straight from the final whistle to home, got him dressed up and into church.
He was a legend up there was JK.
