The New Zealand men’s national rugby union team, known as the All Blacks, represent New Zealand in what is regarded as its national sport. The All Blacks hold the Rugby World Cup, are the 2012 International Rugby Board (IRB) Team of the Year, and are the leading Test match points scorers of all time. They are the only international side with a winning record against every Test nation they have played, and since their international debut in 1903 only five Test nations have ever defeated New Zealand. Since the introduction of the IRB’s world rankings in October 2003, New Zealand has held number one ranking the majority of the time.
New Zealand compete with Argentina, Australia and South Africa in The Rugby Championship—known as the Tri Nations before Argentina’s entry in 2012. The All Blacks have won the trophy eleven times in the competition’s sixteen-year history. They also hold the Bledisloe Cup, which is contested for annually with Australia, and the Freedom Cup—contested annually with South Africa. The defeat of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales all in one tour, known as a Grand Slam, has been achieved four times by the All Blacks—1978, 2005, 2008 and 2010.
The All Blacks have won over 75% of their Test matches which is almost 15% more wins than their nearest rivals. They have also been named the IRB Team of the Year six times since 2005.Two members have won the International Rugby Board Player of the Year award, current captain Richie McCaw, and in 2012, Daniel Carter; both McCaw and Carter are the only players to have won the accolade more than once. Fifteen former All Blacks have been inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame; four of these are also inductees of the IRB Hall of Fame.
The team’s first ever match was in 1884 against Cumberland County, New South Wales, and their first Test match in 1903 against Australia in Sydney. The following year they hosted their first ever home Test, a match against a British Isles side in Wellington. This was followed by a tour of Europe and North America in 1905 where the team suffered their first Test defeat—to Wales in Cardiff.
The team’s early uniforms consisted of a black jersey with a silver fern and white knickerbockers. By the 1905 tour New Zealand were wearing all black, except for the silver fern, and their name All Blacks dates from this time. New Zealand perform a haka—a Māori challenge or posture dance—before each match. The haka performed has traditionally been Te Rauparaha’s Ka Mate, although since 2005 Kapa o Pango—a modified version of the 1924 All Blacks haka, Kia Whaka-ngawari—has occasionally been performed.
The France national rugby union team represents France in rugby union. They compete annually against England, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales in the Six Nations Championship. They have won the championship outright sixteen times, shared it a further eight times, and have completed nine grand slams. Eight former French players have been inducted into either the International Rugby Hall of Fame or the IRB Hall of Fame—two to the International Hall only, two to the IRB Hall only, and four to both Halls of Fame.
Rugby was introduced to France in 1872 by the British, and on New Year’s Day 1906 the national side played its first Test match — against New Zealand in Paris. France played sporadically against the Home Nations until they joined them to form a Five Nations tournament (now the Six Nations Championship) in 1910. France also competed in the rugby competitions at early Summer Olympics, winning the gold medal in 1900 and two silver medals in the 1920s. The national team came of age during the 1950s and 1960s, winning their first Five Nations title outright in 1959. They won their first Grand Slam in 1968. Since the inaugural World Cup in 1987, France have qualified for the knock-out stage of every tournament. They have reached the final three times, losing to the All Blacks in 1987 and 2011 and to Australia in 1999. France hosted the 2007 Rugby World Cup, where, as in 2003, they were beaten in the semi-finals by England.
France traditionally play in blue shirts with white shorts and red socks, and are commonly referred to as les tricolores or les bleus. The French emblem is a golden rooster imposed upon a red shield. Their alternative strip is composed of a white shirt and navy blue shorts and socks. French international matches are played at several venues across the country; the Stade de France in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis is used for their games during the Six Nations, and they have a formidable home record at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille where they have only lost twice, to Argentina in 2004 and to New Zealand in 2009.
