Format: Paperback
26 NZ Rugby players, 1 Australian Manager Coach (and his Wife)a Co-Manager
and a Media man set out for a tour of Great Britain only 2 years after the
triumphal 1924 All Blacks (The Invincibles)had toured Great Britain and
Ireland unbeaten. It should not have gone wrong, but it did .. horribly..
This was Rugby League not Union.
7 Men went on strike, the other 19 had to cover for them on the field in
a Northern Winter following the crippling 1926 General Strike.
7 Men cast forever into Rugby purdah, 5 never to set foot in a Rugby Ground again. Only 2 were still alive to be told their ban had been lifted.
Trans-Tasman tension; Money, Religion, Freemasonry and bitter personal rivalry
interwoven with Management- Player discord were all part of this toxic tour.
John Coffey is a veteran NZ Rugby Laague writer who has set it all out in an
entertaining journalistic style. He asks many questions and supplies some answers, but finds most of the evidence lays buried by the NZ Authorities concerned and the
truth with the passage of time is not available.
A facinating and excellent read for all Rugby enthusiasts.
