All Black Debutants

The recent test match against Japan involved 8 new All Black debutants. Not since 1986 when we had 10 test debutants have we given away so many new caps. And they were extenuating circumstances. You have to go back a long way to find more debutants in a single test match....

Finally, the All Blacks can name a full playing XV with Alliterative names. There have been 34 All Blacks with alliterative names. We have picked our best XV, with the criteria that players must have filled that jersey in a test:

1 Wilson Whineray, 2 Ian Irvine, 3 Bill Bush, 4 Sam Strahan, 5 Albert Anderson, 6 Jamie Joseph, 7 Victor Vito, 8 Murray Mexted, 9 Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, 10 Beauden Barrett, 11 Sitiveni Sivivatu, 12 Mark Mayerhoefler, 13 Ron Rangi, 14 Bill Birtwistle, 15 Christian Cullen
