As the national game, rugby has dominated sports writing in this country. Colin Meads, long regarded as our greatest rugby player. Alex Veysey’s Colin Meads: All Black (1974) was the work of one of New Zealand’s foremost sportswriters. For some it is still the benchmark by which all sports biographies in New Zealand are measured. Sir Colin Earl Meads was no giant, yet his colossal shadow stretched around the globe even before opponents were exposed to his ferocity on the rugby fields. Standing 1.92m and weighing around 100kg, the King Country farmer, by modern-day standards, would probably be classified as too short to be an international lock. The athletic Meads, though, fitted the role perfectly during his All Blacks' career which began against New South Wales in Sydney in 1957 and ended 14 years later when he captained the All Blacks to a 14-all draw in the fourth and final test against the British and Irish Lions in Auckland.
