Listed by Mullock's Auctions as "rare and outstanding", the jersey is said to be from Sir Colin's last overseas Test match, against South Africa in 1970, with a certificate of authenticity signed by the 55-Test lock included.

Any fan wanting to purchase the jersey would have to pay upwards of five figures, estimated to be worth between £6,000 and £8,000 (NZ $11, 678 and $15,571).

The auction will take place later this month on March 28.

Sir Colin passed away in August 2017, losing a long battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 81.
