Former All Blacks No 8 Graham Mexted has died in Wellington aged 82.

Mexted, whose son Murray was also an All Blacks No 8, played six matches for the All Blacks between 1950-51, including a sole test appearance in the 11-8 win over the British Lions at Eden Park in 1950.

He also was picked for New Zealand's 1951 tour of Australia, where he failed to win test selection but played in five matches, scoring five tries.

Graham Mexted was also part of the Wellington team which lifted the Ranfurly Shield from Waikato in 1953. He played 38 matches for Wellington.
