Caricatures for All Black and French rugby heroes

Paul Martin - Monday, October 17, 2011

My Rugby club Hamilton Marist hosted the Shamrock rugby dinner last Wednesday 12th October. Guest speakers were Sir Colin Meads and French international Serge Betsen.

It was my privilege to draw a pencil caricature of these 2 rugby legends, Sir Colin and Serge signed these one off illustrations, they were then auctioned off for charity at the dinner. It was a great night and it was a pleasure to talk to Sir Colin and Serge. We talked about French Rugby and I reminisced about the rugby clubs I played for in France- Ceret Sportif, St Claude and Orleans. It was a great night and thanks to Mark M'Connell from Kukri who purchased the signed Serge Betsen Illustration, Kevin O'Brien purchased the signed Sir Colin Meads illustration.
