The story of the world's most formidable rugby team
The record of the All Blacks in world rugby is unmatched. From the famous pre-match challenge of the haka to the scintillating brand of rugby they play, the team draws thousands around the world to stadiums and TVs to watch them play. Over the years, some of the greatest players to ever pick up a rugby ball have worn the iconic black jersey - names like Lomu, Meads, Carter and Barrett. From the first ever tours to the modern World Cups, the All Blacks embody a legacy of excellence that strikes fear into the heart of their opponents.
Son, you've got to be prepared to piss blood to wear this jersey. - All Black flanker Mark Shaw to debutant Mike Brewer, 1986.
The 1924/5 All Black side won an astonishing 31 games in a row on their tour to the United Kingdom, France and North America. When they arrived back in New Zealand they were dubbed 'The Invincibles'
