Nearly 130 years old, the All Blacks are a name worth remembering. Fans from around the world, both the rugby faithful and the ignorant, know the All Blacks and the Hakka with which they prelude their contests.
Starting in 1892, the All Blacks would quickly elevate themselves to the top of the world's stage. The first tour saw New Zealand win 9 of their 10 matches. A legacy of victory and resilience was soon laid as the All Blacks would continue to dominate- earning them the nickname "The Invincibles" during their British Isles and France tours in 1924-1925.
The legacy of the All Blacks is rare in the sporting world. Dominance was not just a token attribute of an era for the squad. To this day, they have winning records against each of the 19 nations, and their overall record has them with a winning percentage in the high 70s.
