Taranaki's first challenge was against Auckland in 1906 but, in September 1913 it beat Auckland before defending it six times in 1914 before losing to Wellington. Nowadays, all these ex-players who get chosen just don’t do it for me.

Just as the 1949 All Blacks couldn’t counter Hennie Muller and marauding loose forward aggressive defense, so too the 1956 Springboks couldn’t cope with the up-and-under kick and New Zealand style rucking.
