A Century of the All Blacks in Britain & Ireland

This 350 page book contains detailed analysis of every tour game played by New Zealand in the Home Unions from September 1905 to November 2005. Compiled by respected rugby historians Dave Fox, Mark Hoskins and Ken Bogle, it is believed this will become the reference work for those interested in New Zealand playing rugby union in this country. With an illustration from virtually every game, the book provides a report of the match, teams and scorers. It has been written from a British point of view, with references to the home players in particular. It has been painstakingly researched and corrects many of the errors found in previous tour books. It contains many previously unpublished facts and items of memorabilia, including a full colour section. The book also has details of the All Blacks' World Cup appearances in these islands.


Published in January 2006, images from the 1905 tour featured in this book can be found on our Memorabilia Corner page.

The book has a cover price of £19.99. It is available to members of the Rugby Memorabilia Society for £15, and to non members for £19.00
