Win a copy of War Blacks Rugby World

War Blacks tells the story of all 93 men who fought in World War One and played for the All Blacks before or after the conflict.
Author Matt Elliott has uncovered a huge amount of details about these players’ lives and the book includes accounts of how soldiers still managed to play rugby during wartime: “The raging conflict was sometimes so close that the thunder of artillery moaned in the background.”
By mid-May 1915 the New Zealand Rugby Union estimated that more than 2,000 players had enlisted, 400 of them from Wellington Football Club and 800 from Otago – and War Blacks is packed with detail and insight.
