Go behind the scenes with the world’s most successful sports team.
This is a complete history of the All Blacks told by the players themselves. From the legendary 1905 “Originals” to Richie McCaw’s record-breaking back-to-back World Cup champions of 2015, this is the history of the All Blacks as they have never been seen before.
Exclusive archival and new material garnered from a vast array of players and coaches, Behind the Silver Fern unveils the compelling truth of what it means to wear the jersey – all the trials and tribulations behind the scenes, the glory, drama and honour on the field, and the bonds of brotherhood that tie these men together. Absorbing and illuminating, this is the ultimate story of the ABs, by the men who have been there and done it.
