From the first match between Wales and New Zealand in 1905 to November 2012, a mutual bond of rivalry and respect has developed between the two countries, both having a passion for rugby. In this book the author documents the history of all the matches played but contrary to other histories it shifts the focus from the nitty-gritty of play to the delights and curiosities of off-field actions, obligations and functions, drawing our attention to this often-overlooked aspect of a tour. From forgotten facts unearthed in old, dusty newspapers to the fresh anecdotes and recollections of modern day 'greats' - both All Black and Welsh - Roger Penn provides us with an unorthodox and stimulating look at these great rugby encounters.
