The Power Behind the All Blacks : The Untold Story of the Men Who Coached the All Blacks
This is the extraordinary first-time story of the 34 men who have coached the All Blacks. The result of 25 years' work by the author. For nearly a century the All Blacks have bestrode the highest rungs of the world rugby ladder. Year in year out, decade after decade, they have forged an international record second to none. However, until now, the All Blacks' coaches have never been paid their dues, never had their careers and contributions analysed deeply. For the first time, these often great men, and their times, are examined in depth. The book explores what drove them to countless international victories and a growing national pride in the Men in Black.
