The 1905 Original All Blacks.

The Original All Blacks (also known simply as "The Originals") were the first New Zealand national rugby union team to tour outside Australasia. They toured the British Isles, France and United States of America during 1905 - 1906. The opening game was against Devon on 16 September 1905 and the final game was against British Columbia on 13 February 1906. During that period, a total of thirty-five matches were played including five Tests. Only one match was lost - the famous Test against Wales which the All Blacks lost 0 - 3.

After the formation of the New Zealand Rugby Football Union (NZRFU) in 1892, New Zealand representative teams were selected for matches against international opponents. The first tour by a New Zealand representative side was in 1894, with a tour of New South Wales. New Zealand's first Test match was in 1903 when they played Australia in Sydney.[1] New Zealand's first home Test was the following year when they defeated Britain at Athletic Park, Wellington, by 9-3.[2] The win was significant as Britain had been unbeaten in their Australian tour, yet they won only two out of five matches in New Zealand.[3] The captain of Great Britain, David Sedell-Sivright, said after the Test that he could not see New Zealand winning the big matches on their Northern Hemisphere tour, but "I think you will probably win most of the county matches."[4] Punch was a British weekly magazine of humour and satire published from 1841 to 1992 and from 1996 to 2002. ...

Preparation

The New Zealand selectors named a group of fifty-three players from which the touring team would be selected in late 1904.[3] The following year on February 25, a list of 16 "certainties" for the tour was named (one of whom would eventually not tour due to injury).[5] A final opportunity for selection was the North-South inter-island match on 3 June 1905.[6] Following the match 25 players were selected for the team, and an additional two were added prior to the teams departure to Britain.[3] February 25 is the 56th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar. ...

Before the Northern Hemisphere tour, eighteen of the squad conducted a preliminary three-match tour of Australia where they won two matches and drew the other. They also played four pre-tour matches in New Zealand, winning two, drawing one, and losing their final game 3-0 to Wellington.[7] The Wellington Rugby Football Union (WRFU) is the official governing body of rugby union in the city of Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. ...


The team departed for England aboard the Rimutaka on 30 July. There were two ports of call on the journey, Montevideo, and Tenerife, before their arrival in Plymouth, England. The day after their arrival on 8 September, the squad travelled 24 km (15 miles) to Newton Abbott, which seved as the teams training base throughout much of their tour.[8] July 30 is the 211th day (212th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, with 154 days remaining. ...

Early matches

Their first match took place on September 16 1905 against Devon, who had been runners-up in the most recent English county championship, and for whom played ten members of Devonport Albion, the top club in England.[9] Because of this, Devon went into the match as favourites, however the crowd of six thousand attended the match were soon stunned by the New Zealanders as they scored twelve tries and eventually won b 55-4[9] [10]. Billy Wallace scored twenty-eight points, including three tries, and it would be another fifty-one years before another All Black would score more points in one match.[10] The score caused a sensation in Britain, and some newspapers even incorrectly reported the score as Devon 55, New Zealand 4.[10][11] Eventually the reports were corrected, and the New Zealanders returned to Newton Abbott to be greeted by a brass band and cheering crowd.[11] September 16 is the 259th day of the year (260th in leap years). ...

Five days later New Zealand faced Cornwall at Recreation Ground in Camborne.[12] Although the score was only 12-0 at half time, the New Zealanders ended up with eleven tries, and a 41-0 victory.[13] The team then travelled to play Bristol, who they played on 13 September. The game was played in front of 6500 spectators, with the same result as the Cornwall match, a 41-0 victory for New Zealand.[14] They then travelled to Northampton, after stopping in London. The game resulted in another victory, this time 31-0, to the All Blacks.[15] By now, the All Blacks had scored 169 points in their four games, with only four against.[16] Flag of Cornwall The Cornish Rugby Football Union (CRFU) was formed in 1883. ...

The next match was against Leicester at Welford Road on 30 September.[17] Four players in the Leicester team would go on to play in the England Test; more then any other club.[18] Although the All Blacks were held scoreless for the first 25 minutes, at the time the longest period that the All Blacks had gone without scoring on tour, Smith eventually crossed for the All Blacks first score of the game.[17][19] The All Blacks ended the match 28-0 winners.[17][20] Official website www. ... September 30 is the 273rd day of the year (274th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


The toughest game of the tour so far was against Durham County, on 7 October.[21] Durham were the English county champions, and were the first team to score a try against the All Blacks on tour. Despite the small 6-3 advantage to the All Blacks at the break, they scored ten unanswered points in the second half to win 16-3.[21] The All Blacks' closest game of the tour so far was immediately followed by their largest win. The match against Hartlepool Clubs, one of the strongest teams in northern England, was won 63-0 by the All Blacks.[22] October 7 is the 280th day of the year (281st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


The All Blacks next three games were against Northumberland, Gloucester, and Somerset.[23] None of the sides scored against the All Blacks; with them losing by 31, 44, and 23 points to nil respectively.[24][25][26] Four days following the Somerset match, the All Blacks faced Devonport Albion. Devonport Albion were England's club champion, and the runners-up for Great Britain club champion.[27] 20,000 spectators witnessed another All Blacks victory; this time by 21-3.[28]


For the match against Midland Counties at Leicester, 17,000 spectators, as well as officials from the Welsh rugby union attended the match.[29] Although Midland Counties scored a converted try, the All Blacks retained their winning record with a 21-5 victory.[29] The victory over Midland Counties was followed by an 11-0 victory over Surrey, and 32-0 victory over Blackheath.[23] The seven try win over Blackheath was considered by Wallace to be the end of the All Blacks' peak - "Unfortunately, after this game injuries began to take their toll and prevented us ever putting in so fine a team again on the tour."[30]


The next three game for the All Blacks would be played in five days.[31] The All Blacks scored thirteen tries, and Hunter five of them, as they ran up a 47-0 victory over Oxford University.[32] Their next match, two days later, was against Cambridge University.[33] The Scotland Test was approaching, and the All Blacks decided to rest several of it's players; Hunter, Stead, Selling, and Gillett.[33] Cambridge's kicking game, and fast backs helped them to restrict the score to 14-0 to the All Blacks.[34] Two days later the All Blacks faced Richmond, and scored five tries to register a 17-0 victory.[35] Their last game before the Scotland Test was against a Bedford XV in Richmond.[36] There were four All Black tries in the first half, and six in the second.[37] The final score was 41-0; the All Blacks had now scored over 600 points on tour.[37]


Scotland

At the time of the Tour, rugby in Scotland was a game of the upper classes, and the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) was very conservative.[38][39] Their officials believed the game should remain strictly amateur, and that rugby was for the players, not the spectators.[39] The Scottish were uncomfortable with the public interest in the All Blacks, and did not make them feel very welcome.[39][38] They interpreted a letter sent to them stating that the All Blacks did not want to be entertained after their match quite literally, and the All Blacks were not invited to the after-match dinner organised by the Scottish Union.[40][41] As well as this, the SRU refused to grant international caps for the game.[38]


The game was a financial success for the NZRFU.[3] The NZRFU had asked for a £500 financial guarantee from the SRU for the game, but because of their dept, the SRU offered instead to give the entire gate (minus expenses).[39] Due to a big attendance, the NZRFU received a fee of over £1700 for the game.[42] Although the SRU were very happy with this (they offered the same terms to the Springboks when they toured in 1906).[42] There were also concerns about the three shillings a day each All Black received whilst on tour.[3] After they found that the Rugby Football Union had approved the payments, a Calcutta Cup match was cancelled.[3] Calcutta Cup The Calcutta Cup is a rugby union trophy awarded to the winner of the annual Six Nations Championship match between England and Scotland. ...


The game was played on 18 November on an icy pitch (straw had not been spread over the pitch the night before), which nearly caused the game to be cancelled.[43][3] The All Blacks kicked off, and had the best of the first ten minutes.[44] Scotland eventually got a scrum near the All Blacks goal-line, and after winning the scrum, passed to Ernest Simson, who dropped a goal to put Scotland ahead 4-0.[44] It was the first time the All Blacks had been behind on tour.[44] The All Blacks replied with a try under the posts, which was unconverted. A second try was then scored, by Smith; again it went unconverted. Scotland then scored an unconverted try, to lead at half time 7-6. With less then ten minutes to go the score remained 7-6 and it looked like the All Blacks might lose their first match on tour. However with four minutes to go the All Blacks had a scrum on halfway; the resulting movement finished with George Smith crossing for a try.[45] Bill Cunningham then scored a try with seconds remaining, and the All Blacks were victorious 12-7.[45] November 18 is the 322nd day of the year (323rd in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. ...


Four days after the Scotland Test the All Blacks faced West of Scotland in Glasgow.[46] The cities' secondary schools were given half a day off to watch the match.[47] The All Blacks scored six tries on the way to a 22-0 victory.[47] The team then travelled to Ireland, for their third Test.


Ireland

The welcome extended by the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) a contrast to that of Scotland.[48] The morning they arrived in Belfast they were met by several IRFU officials who took them out for breakfast.[46] The arrival in Ireland also marked a homecoming for the captain Gallaher, who was born in County Donegal, but had moved to New Zealand at the age of four.[49] Thousands awaited the All Blacks when they arrived in the Dublin train station.[46] On the Thursday before the Test, both teams attended the theatre together; sitting alternatively so they could better mix.[48] The Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) is the body managing rugby union in Ireland. ...


The sold out Test was played on Saturday 25 November at Lansdowne Park.[48][49] The 12,000 that turned up did not get to see Gallaher though, as he was injured.[49] Mynott was also selected to play on the wing despite having never played there before, and there being three three-quarters available.[50] For a 30 minute period in the first half the Irish forwards dominated, however the deadlock was broken close to half time when Deans scored a try under the posts; Wallace converted the try giving the All Blacks a 5-0 half-time lead.[50] Early in the second half Deans scored another try; again converted by Wallace.[48] Smith lost the ball over the line before Alex McDonald scored the All Blacks third and final try. Wallace successfully converted to give the All Blacks a 15-0 victory.[48] November 25 is the 329th (in leap years the 330th) day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Name

The team departed New Zealand as the New Zealand Football Team, or, simply The New Zealanders, though names such as Maorilanders and Colonials were also applied. Reference to the team by the name "All Blacks" first appeared during the Originals tour when, according to Billy Wallace, a London newspaper reported that the New Zealanders played as if they were "all backs".[51] Wallace claimed that due to a typographical error, subsequent references were to "All Blacks". Wallace was the last of the Originals to pass away, so this explanation for the name's origins is widely believed.[52] However, the Express and Echo in Devon, reporting after the Originals match there, refered to "The All Blacks, as they are styled by reason of there sable and unrelieved costume."[52] The new name quickly became popular throughout Britain, though its acceptance into popular culture took a longer time back home in New Zealand. On March 5 when the team returned home, the Herald acclaimed the "New Zealand Footballers", however, the following day its report of the official function was headed "Return of the All Blacks". March 5 is the 64th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (65th in leap years). ...
