Robertson to be farewelled on Thursday

Iconic former Counties Manukau and All Blacks centre Bruce Robertson will be farewelled at Navigation Homes Stadium in Pukekohe on Thursday, May 18 at 11am.

It is the wishes of the Steelers centurion’s family that his funeral service is held at the ground where he shone as a player between 1971 and 1982. 

The service will take place in the Phil Kingsley Jones Lounge with additional seating in the grandstand for the likely overflow of people wanting to pay their respects.

Bruce, an Ardmore Rugby Club legend, will also be lying in state at the club’s Pulman Park headquarters from 10am-7pm on Tuesday, May 16 and Wednesday, May 17.

All who wish to pay their respects are welcome at the Ardmore Marist Clubrooms this week.

Following Robertson’s funeral service on Thursday, the family would like to invite guests to remain at Navigation Homes Stadium for refreshments.
