On Tour with the All Black Army

Television (Full Length) – 2000 Sport Documentary

Start video player

In 1999 the All Blacks were off to the Rugby World Cup in Wales, with a hoard of Kiwi rugby fans following in support. One particular group, led by former captain Buck Shelford and his wife Jo, are the subject of this documentary. The group consists largely of farmers and businessmen, who have each paid the handsome sum of $12,000. Arriving in time for the quarter finals, they are sure of seeing the All Blacks raise the Webb Ellis Cup after the final at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium. Opposing fans seem to have other ideas though, as does a certain underdog French team.

Jonah — he's the Edmund Hillary of New Zealand rugby. Hillary's at the top, he knocks the bastards over, and when Lomu's up there he knocks a few over too. So I think the highlight will be bringing that cup home.
