Te Karere – History of the Māori All Blacks: 1959 - Bring on the biff
Wednesday 14 Jun
The 1959 encounter is played at a packed Eden Park in front of 45,000 fans. It's remembered as the most ill-tempered game on tour with the legendary Albie Pryor rarking up all and sundry. The fixture also sees the debut of a young player who would go on to become an All Black great: Waka Nathan, the loose forward they called the 'black panther'.
