Thanks to the person who forwarded this link, from the New Zealand Herald website, an intriguing story:

A new book has revealed the All Blacks were threatened by the IRA during a tour to Ireland in 1973.

The book claims a letter of “advice” was supposedly sent by Sinn Fein to one of the All Blacks players Bob Burgess during the tour of Great Britain and France.

Read on for a most curious tale.

Any thoughts? Mischief making by someone else, a cack-handed effort or?
