Are the All Blacks just… better?

Wednesday 19 Oct 2016 9:39 a.m.

The All Blacks are so far ahead of the rest of the rugby world, it seems all they have to do is show up to notch up another win.

They’re playing the Wallabies on Saturday night, and if they win, they will have created a new record of 18 wins in a row.

Referee Nigel Owens will be the man controlling traffic on the field, and he spoke to Paul Henry about where all of the competition has gone.

While he’s in town to host he will appear in an Auckland Writers Festival public ‘In Conversation’ event on Thursday at 7pm at Auckland Grammar talking about his autobiography - and his extraordinary life on and off the pitch.
