This is the story of a man whose life was made up of mystery, intrigue and deception, but was also a Rugby Union star before the First World War. He played for Leicester, at that time England’s leading club, and for Cornwall when they won the 1908 County Championship. He was then selected for the Anglo-Welsh Rugby Union tour to New Zealand and Australia in 1908. However, the RFU recalled him from the tour and banned him from the sport over allegations that he was a professional player, and had played for Swinton in the Northern Union. The scandal around his suspension from rugby union caused great problems for the RFU and almost saw a further split in the game following the creation of the Northern Union in 1895. POST FREE INN UK AND SURFACE POST OVERSEAS He then played Rugby League and represented his adopted country, New Zealand, against the British Lions in 1910. After the First World War he was reinstated by the New Zealand Rugby Union. He became an East Coast selector and saw his son play for the All Blacks. For around 60 years he used the name Frederick Stanley Jackson, even though it was not his given name. When he died in 1957 he took to the grave his true identity. Even his family knew little about his early years in England, or even where he came from. It was a mystery that remained unresolved until now.
