Select your heaven-sent ABS
So it is appropriate to look back at our All Black teams of that period, starting in 1987 and up to 2011.
Players who have represented New Zealand in tests during the those years are eligible to be chosen.
Next week – the Waikato Times sports editor Evan Pegden will name his top XV and place it alongside the readers’ choice XV.
We need readers to submit their selections from jersey numbers 1 to 15, meaning you must select legitimate tighthead and loosehead props as well as openside and blindside flankers and left and right wingers.
Selections need to be in by Monday.
You can email your selections at firstname.lastname@example.org
