Sadly – Brian died in March 2008, just weeks after he and Krisa spent a week with me on the Gold Coast.  The following is a compilation of our communications during the few months that we had been back in touch with each other…  Rest peacefully old friend.

With thanks to Jason (Brian’s son) – who Googled his father’s name and stumbled on this site.


For Brian and Krisa in Johannesburg… These three pictures (from the old days) are the only ones I have – I hope you two will add a few more!


Brian’s (and Jason’s) updated pictures below here…

    Well – it is all happening. Just like the Aussies and the Kiwis leave it all to the Boks to defend the Southern Hemisphere. We believe you will all shout for us as we cannot let the Poms in again. If you have some score predictions please share them with us. If we win on Saturday can we be called World Champs if we have not played NZ,Australia,France and Ireland? Await your comments
