Summary

New Zealand rugby is a dynasty that transcends all national barriers. As a culture and a model of humility and consistent success, which have led them to three Rugby World Cups, the world of rugby continues to look to the New Zealand model for guidance. 

Traditionally, the renowned All Blacks and those charged with guiding them have kept their rules of engagement close to their chests. However now, New Zealand Rugby has agreed to open their doors to rugby writer Peter Bills to consider the reasons behind their dominance of the world game in the build-up towards the Lions Series in 2017 and Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. Through this audiobook, Peter Bills draws on case studies and interviews of officials, coaches and players as well as people involved in all elements of rugby right across New Zealand. The Jersey tells an extraordinary story with unprecedented access and insight and explores the basic requirements and immense challenges required not only to become number one in the world but to remain consistently at the top.

Incredible insight

I bought this audio book for insight and inspiration that can be brought into the business world. As a Springbok supporter, I found the story of the All Blacks incredible.
