WIN: The Essential All Blackography

  • Seven All Blacks have gone on to become Members of Parliament.
  • The All Blacks’ heaviest test defeat (by margin) was against Australia in Sydney in 1999. Final score: 28–7.
  • Adam Ashley-Cooper has represented Australia a record 31 times against the All Blacks.

We’ve just released a lavish new edition of this indispensable guide to every All Black from the very first player — James Allan in 1884 to the most recent crop selected for the All Blacks end-of-year tour in 2016.

The Essential All Blackography includes a headshot of every player along with a biography that includes all their playing statistics. This is the most comprehensive book on the 1100+ players to have represented New Zealand in rugby ever published.

Also included is a chapter on the evolution of the famous All Blacks jersey and a comprehensive statistical section.

It’s a must-own for all rugby fans, whether you’re a hard-core stats collector or just someone who likes a few facts up your sleeve for quiz night.

This competition is now closed. Congratulations to Lianne Dillingham, Isaac Te whaiti & Quentin McIntosh.
