Let these men inspire you, and encourage you to support this great cause:

2 Tane Norton (1971 - 77, 27, 81.47)

3 Keith Murdoch (1970 - 72, 3, 8.65)

4 Gary Whetton (c) (1981 - 91, 58, 113.93)

5 Murray Pierce (1985 - 89, 26, 54.17)

13 Joe Stanley (1986 - 90, 27, 52.73)

14 Bernie Fraser (1979 - 84, 23, 53.91)

15 Allan Hewson (1981 - 84, 19, 41.30)

Reserves

16 Bruce Hemara (uncapped, 3 matches in 1985)

17 Scott Crichton (1983, 2, 3.57)

18 Brad Johnstone (1976 - 79, 13, 28.26)

19 Gary Braid (1983, 2, 3.57)

20 Frank Shelford (1981 - 84, 4, 8.7)

21 Mark Donaldson (1977 - 81, 13, 23.96)

22 Tu Wyllie (uncapped, 1 match in 1980)

23 Craig Green (1983 - 87, 20, 40.10)

Coach Alex Wyllie (1970 - 73, 11, 32.35 / All Black head coach 1988 - 91, 29 tests - 25 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses)

Grizz's famous moustache became more famous during his coaching tenure than his playing days. Hence he becomes the team coach. 

The captain, based on era-adjusted caps of 113.93, is Gary Whetton. 

The bench includes 2 All Blacks who were uncapped, but deserving of their spot due to their virility.
