the 1,109 New Zealand ALL BLACKS from 1884 - NATHAN to YOUNG
the New Zealand National RUGBY UNION, called the All Blacks, represent New Zealand in international rugby union competitions.
Rugby union is regarded as New Zealand's national sport.
Winners of the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, New Zealand are the leading points scorers of all time and the only international rugby team with a winning record against every test nation they have ever played.
The All Blacks have held the top ranking in the world for longer than all other countries combined. In over 100 years only five of the top twenty ranked test rugby nations have ever beaten New Zealand. They have won a record 75% of all rugby matches they have ever played since 1903
