The Hundred Years' War All Blacks vs Springboks by Jamie Wall

From the author of Brothers in Black and Facing the Haka, Jamie's latest book covers the rivalry between the All Blacks and the Springboks. They have the most fearsome and controversial rivalry in rugby and in this book,  Jamie Wall covers the most brutal and relentless rugby ever played, and the century of bitter struggles that have come with it. 

In South Africa there’s a saying: 'You're not a real Springbok until you've played the All Blacks'. It’s a testament to one of the fiercest rivalries in rugby history, that between South Africa and New Zealand, but also perhaps the greatest sign of respect an opposition side has ever paid the most successful team in the world.

This intense rivalry has seen the two cultures brought together and then torn apart by racism, reaching a peak with the 1981 South African rugby tour, which polarised New Zealand and sparked protests across the country.

Wall says there are heroes and villains on both sides, on and off the field. And events off field have dramatically shaped those on it, as both nations and their teams have undergone huge changes.
