A seminal moment in the history of Rugby Union Football, indeed in sport itself, occurred in 1905 when the New Zealand rugby side, the All Blacks, toured Britain and Ireland. The tourists played 32 games and won 31 of them, decimating the opposition and setting new standards of fitness, attitude, and skill which British teams took many years to reach. This book reflects on each game of that tour, and all the other tour matches played by New Zealand in Britain and Ireland since. Liberally illustrated with match memorabilia and photographs, the book follows the All Blacks through 100 years of outstanding rugby.
