Lady Verna Meads has reportedly confirmed that husband and All Blacks legend Sir Colin is extremely unwell, as he continues to battle pancreatic cancer.
He was not at Waikato hospital, nor was he at his Te Kuiti home, but she declined to give any further information as to his whereabouts and asked media for family privacy.
"He's holding on," Lady Verna told Fairfax. She declined to make any comment when contacted by the Herald.
The 55-test former All Black was diagnosed with the cancer in August 2016.
The last public appearance the 81-year-old made was in Te Kuiti to unveil his 2.7 metre statue in June.
