A charity has put copies of the late Bill McLaren's famous rugby commentary crib sheets up for sale in order to raise funds.

The A3 size documents contain up to 1,000 detailed facts and figures for each of the many matches he covered.

Copies of the "Big Sheets" are being sold by the Bill McLaren Foundation set up in his honour.

The first document available is from the 1993 match between the Barbarians and the All Blacks.

The charitable foundation was set up after the commentator's death in January.

It was set up to support the development of rugby and its values, and to recognise his contribution to the game.
