This was one of the original tour shirts manufactured in New Zealand and not from the later batch produced in the U.K. George Arthur Gillett (1877-1956), was a full back or occasional wing forward appearing for Auckland before winning eight International caps for New Zealand. He played in 24 matches on the 1905/06 tour including the four internationals, all at full back. After retirement he was involved with Rugby League administration as well as being a hotel publican.
