The All Blacks are one of the most recognisable and formidable teams on the world sporting stage. They are the record setters, the keepers of tradition, and the icons of the game of Rugby Union. They hold the most victories of any Test nation and the best win percentage overall, and can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder alongside some of the greatest sporting teams of any code in the world.

Much has been written about the All Blacks and their legacy, but in this little book you will look back at their achievements across the past 30 years, recollect memorable moments and marvel at the exploits of some of the legendary performances during period. From the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, when it was still an amateur game, through to their record-breaking exploits in 2016 at the height of professionalism, the All Blacks have enjoyed one of the highest levels of consistency ever seen on the global sporting landscape.

As the new names roll off the All Black production line, there is no doubt that all involved will continue to demand and strive for the highest level of achievement.
