“Jum” Hubert Sydney Turtill
The 1905 Collection

The very well publicised auction took place this past Friday (March 1st 2019) at Rogers Jones auctioneers of Cardiff. The LOT included a 1905 All Blacks Jersey from the test against Australia prior to the team travelling to the UK (this jersey has many differences between the ones used on the Originals tour – the standout being the fern). This marked the only occasion Jum represented NZ.
