The final send-off for Sir Brian Lochore, one of the greatest players to wear the All Blacks jersey and the 1987 Rugby World Cup-winning coach, will be held at his beloved home ground, Masterton's Memorial park.

The former All Black captain's family have confirmed a service will be held on Thursday at 1pm at the park.

It will be open to the public, with the family expecting "thousands" to attend.

The Wairarapa Bush Rugby Union is in the process of planning the event, which will include road closures and extensive logistical arrangements to host all those wishing to attend.

The 78-year-old, who played 25 tests (68 matches) for New Zealand at No 8 and lock from 1964 to 1971, died on Saturday after a battle with bowel cancer.

Lochore's wife, Lady Pam and the couple's three children wanted to express their gratitude for the care and support the family has received since Lochore's diagnosis.

"The family thank the numerous doctors and medical staff who tried so hard and gave exceptional care," the family said in a statement.

"Brian led a life that was full. The family are very proud of all he achieved, and their hearts are breaking at this time of loss as Brian still had so much to give."

Lochore is survived by Pam, their children David, Joanne and Sandra, and their eight grandchildren.
