            The New Zealand All Blacks are one of the most recognisable and formidable teams on the world sporting stage. They are the record setters, the keepers of tradition, and the icons of the game of Rugby Union. They have been the benchmark for skill and execution ever since the oval ...shaped ball first arrived on New Zealand's shores, and are a team the rest of the world aspire to beat. They also hold the most victories of any Test nation, and the best win percentage overall, and can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder alongside some of the greatest sporting teams in the world of any code.Much has been written about the All Blacks and their legacy, but in this one book you get the full picture the Tests, the players, the results and the history - recollecting those memorable moments and marvelling at the exploits of some of world-famous All Blacks. From the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, when it was still an amateur game, through to their record-breaking exploits in 2016 at the height of professionalism, the All Blacks have enjoyed one of the highest levels of sporting success in the world. But the modern era is not the whole story.The New Zealand Rugby Companion fills in the essential gaps, provides the historic context and completes the total picture for all rugby lovers. Up to including the 2019.

            From his upbringing with seven siblings in rural New Zealand, experiences in Ireland as a child, to his rise through the rugby ranks with Taranaki and the Hurricanes, Beauden Barrett will give an insight into what has made him the player he's become, the setbacks he had along the... way and the choices he had to make. One big decision as an 18-year old changed the course of his career and, instead of being lost to New Zealand rugby entirely, set Beauden on the path towards becoming an All Black. Now widely seen as one of the best players in the game, he could have been an AFL star in Australia if it weren't for one phone call. He may have gone from high school to the All Blacks in the space of three years, but the path was far from smooth. Packed with tips and skills, along with drills for different ages and abilities to help young players progress their game, Beauden will also offer advice on how to become a better player off the field, how he learned to adapt to life as a professional sportsman at such a young age and who helped him along the way. Beaudy - Skills, Drills and the Path to the Top is an aspirational read for fans young and old. About the Author: Rikki Swannell has been a sports broadcaster for more than 15 years, and now works in a freelance capacity as a commentator and reporter.
