all-blacks The New Zealand national rugby union team represents New Zealand in rugby union internationally and is one of the strongest teams in the world. Its players are also known as the All Blacks. Active since 1892 (and internationally since 1903), it is the representative that boasts the largest number of players admitted to the International Rugby Hall of Fame.

It participates annually, together with Argentina, Australia and South Africa, in the Rugby Championship, the "southern" equivalent of the Six Nations. In the same competition New Zealand and the Australian national team compete for the Bledisloe Cup, while the All Blacks and Springboks compete for the Freedom Cup.

The first international competition dates back to 1884 against Wellington XV, New South Wales, while the first test match dates back to 1903, with a victory against Australia. New Zealand subsequently played a tour of the Northern Hemisphere in 1905, during which they were defeated only by Wales in Cardiff.
