Based on exclusive interviews with past and present All Blacks, The Jersey reveals the secrets behind how the New Zealand All Blacks have dominated the game of rugby.

The All Blacks are the greatest sports team on the planet. With a better winning record than any other sports team in history, they stand head and shoulders above their nearest rugby rivals, and go to the 2019 World Cup as back-to-back World Champions. How did an island of just 4.8 million people conquer the world? Peter Bills, who has reported on international rugby for more than 40 years, was given exclusive access to all the key figures in New Zealand rugby as he set out to understand the secrets behind the All Blacks' success. From Steve Hansen to Beauden Barrett, Richie McCaw to the late Sir Colin Meads, Peter Bills talked at length with over 90 people, both in New Zealand and around the world, with intimate knowledge of what makes the All Blacks tick. This is a story of the first settlers, and the 'Originals' who forged the All Blacks legacy, right through to modern times. It draws heavily on the contributions made by all New Zealanders: players, coaches, officials, supporters and those who have worn the most recognised jersey in the world. Intrinsically, The Jersey goes to the heart of the All Blacks' success. It is also an epic story of not just a rugby team but a nation, whose identities are inextricably linked. Additionally, it debates a question, terrifying for any of their opponents. Could the All Blacks get even better?

'Extremely well written. Compelling, accurate, insightful and brilliant in the way it captures the New Zealand way.'
John Hart, former All Blacks coach

'This is a wonderful description of why the All Blacks are so good. The author's assessment is spot on. Beautifully written.'
Nick Mallett, ex-South Africa and Italy coach
