1973: the All-Blacks tour of Ireland and… October 30, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
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.
Any thoughts? Mischief making by someone else, a cack-handed effort or?
