Haden died last Wednesday after a long battle with cancer.

He made a name for himself playing for Auckland club Ponsonby in 1971 before being named in the All Blacks a year later.

A Givealittle page has been set up in Haden's honour with all proceeds going to the nurses who cared for him at Auckland Hospital.
