Iíd love to see NZ Moari team replace this shower of non-Maori blow ins!

Thatís better!
Rant over!

Of the 1133 men who have represented the All Blacks (in matches as well as tests), just 32 were born in the islands - Samoa, Tonga, Fiji and American Samoa. bjectid=11278276

since 1996
While New Zealand has 4 times more Pacific born players than would be expected given the population, Australia has 16 times more, and England a whopping 162 times more.
229 New Zealanders have played for another country. The next largest exporter is England with 95 players.
