The year 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the first game of
rugby in Nelson; this book celebrates 150 years of New Zealand's
national game, the game more than any other that has helped shape
the New Zealand psyche and identity. It will take the form of 150
short stories - stories about the players, the teams, the
provinces, the trophies, everything that helped make the game what
it is, from the first in the horse and buggy days to the latest in
the days of ultra-modern technology. It will talk of players who no
one living saw play; and it will talk of players who are recognised
wherever they go in the widening rugby world. And who can talk of
players and resist speculating who the greatest of all might have
been? It's opinions and speculation that make up some of the
enduring appeal of the game New Zealanders are (mostly) better at
than anyone else.
