Win or lose, in favour or out of it, the All Blacks are part of what makes a New Zealander. Such has been their impact on New Zealand society for more than a hundred years, the All Blacks are a part of the New Zealand psyche. They are as much a contributor to New Zealand nationalism as the flag, the anthem and our sense of identity. All Blacks - Myths and Legends comes up with some sensational new information, including one nugget that has so far baffled and confused rugby followers and stumped historians. It puts meat on old bones and provides a fresh look at some old stories and myths. This book looks at the old and the modern; from the All Blacks whose jerseys had leather yokes to those whose jerseys are engineered in accord with the latest in technology.Über den Autor:
